The resolution taken by all the savings

ted this sound financial institution from any

the clerks exerted themselves to accomodate
the demands. Policemen stationed at the
door regulated the presure, but at noon a
rush occured which there was some dilictilty
in repressing. The total withdrawals yes
terday, amounted to 17,950, and an indica
tion that confidence in the bank 13 not in
the faintest decree weakened, is afforded by
the fact that 4,000 were deposited. In the
afternoon the crowd thinned away, and many
who had come went away satisfied, from the

MATTERS AT CAMP APACECS.
Further Review of Affairs Civil and MSi
tary at that Place.
Having given the statements of tho Mili
tary at Camp Apache, we now copy the
following from the Citizen of Aucust 23th
as representing tho other side of tho que
In tho Miner of August 20th, Captain
Ogilby continues the opposition to agent J.
P. Clum. J lie Minkk does not squarelv en
dorse what Oilbv and a subordinate otlicer
to him assert, but it presents the case in a
way to leave tho impression that these 0IJ1
cers arc about riiiht ; and further shows
that the editor is unaware that "the func
tions" of tho two branches of tho service
havo been clearlv '-defined" bv Washington
autorities as far back as June 12, 1SG9, and
that definition is in force to-day, and
was so recognized in 1S74 bv higher tuililarv
authority than any in Arizona. That defi
nition is literallv this: Indians on reserva
tions are wholly under control of Indian
Agents; those off and who rcfuso to come on
roervations nre wholly under coutrol and
supervision of the military. So far as the
burning of tho agency buildings bv Agent
Cluin is concerned, wo will pass that as a
question between him nnd his superior at
Washington, just as is the caso with military
olliccrs wheu they destroy property for what
they regard the public good, or to insure
the success of their objoct, or to unable them
to more etlirientlv execute the orders of
their superiors. If Mr. Clum cannot justify
himself on some such urounds, he must tako
the consequences. Tho military sliowiiix
carries tho idea that the buildings were
totally burned, whereas we are informed, and
we believe credibly, that the doors, win
dows and other such portions were saved,
and even tho nails were drawn from the
buildings and preserved for use again.
As to the published letter from "Jenk.i,"
it amounts to nothit'g so far as Mr. Clum is
concerned. It is not even asserted that he
indorsed its contents or any part thereof,
and if ho did and there is anything wrong
therein, he must also abide the consequences.
In this connection, tho manner in which
Capt. Ogilby came to know tho contents of
that letter while on its way from the writer
to the one it was written to. may be investi
lint these items tiro only incidental ami
not material to a higher issue conveniently
overlooked by Mr. Clum's accusers and op
ponents, and the Miner, too, although the
editor's attention may not have been direct
ed to it, for had it been, we believe it would
havo received some attention, viz: The
illegal usurpation of authority and interfer
ence with the sworn duties of the civil
agents, with a further purpose to bring civil
igents into disrepute and make it appear to
Congress that it were better that the milita
ry should exclusively control all Indians
whether ut peace or war.
Wo have heretofore published, and we
can show it in black and white in a way tha:
will not be disputed, that more than four
months before Agent Clum eTer entered
upon his duties the military determined to
oppose him and if possible officially destroy
11m. He received an unfriendly reception
by tho military at San Carlos, hot happily
that was bridged over and, so far as we
know, amicable relations were maintained ;
and from every independent source that we
could get information, Agent Clum's con
duct was highly commended, and we believe
Lieut. ard himself has been heard to speak
well of him, and recognized the true limit of
the legal authority of each. Rut at the
Apache reservation the military had always
interfered in tho civil administration of the
Indians who were, according to legal in
structions, wholly under the authority of the
civil agents. Indeed, so far did this inter
ference go by Capt. Ogilby, that he unlaw
fully usurped the entire control of the White
Mountain ngency and placed a man in charge
who had no omcial authority whatever, lor
Capt. Ogilby could givo him none. This
usurpation was such a flagrant one, that Gen.
Crook disapproved it. Capt. Ogilby could,
with the same legal right, have marched a
command of troops to Tucson, expelled Gov.
Saflbrd from his office and installed another
person to execute the duties of Governor of
This is a fair illustration of the enormity
of Capt. Ogilby's oll'ensc in the usurpation of
the civil authority over the reservation In
dians at Camp Ap iche. The President of
the United States may require a military
oliiccr to execute the duties of an Indian
tgent, but no one will pretend that Capt.
Ogilbv at the time named, was acting under
such requirement. So in this instance, he
was guilty of a most flagrant interference'
with the civil administration of Indian af
fairs; and wc challenge him to show a cor
respondimr act, or attempted act, or any one
approaching it, on the part of a civ. I iigcnt
with reference to tho powers or atituoriiy 01
a military officer. It must nlsn be borne in
mind, that in times of peace, tho military is
always and properly subordinate tr the
civil authority. On no one point of Govern
ment control are the 'people more scniutive
than on this.
The military is bound to assist the civil
authority when legally called upon, the
country over, and wo might almost say,
over the civilized world; yet we are inform
ed, not however by very good authority,
that Capt. Ogilbv has determined not to
assist Agent Clum in maintaining order,
should the Agent deem military aid neces
sary. Turning loose the Indian prisoners by
Capt. Ogilby's order, seems to confirm our
information in this regard.
And right here comes another point
but little if any inferior in Importance to
the one named. Every military officer is
bound by tho Articles of War to respect the
President nnd tho Congress of tho United
States, as well as certain other civil olficer3.
A law of Congress makes it the duty of the
President, when he shall deem it expedient,
to discontinue any Indian agency, or trans
fer the sam from the placcT or tribe desig
nated by law, to such other place or tribe as
the public service may require. In pursu
ance of such law, not policy, the President
deems it best for the public service to con
centrate the Indians and reduce tho number
of agencies. In the whole history of Indian
affairs we doubt if ever moro convincing
reasons existed for the complete and utter
abandonment of an agency than did at Camp
Apache, and these reasons may be vrell un
derstood by the mere perusal of Oapt. Ogil
by's usurpation of civil authority, as we have
ijiven it. Aoy opposition, directly or indi
rectly, to the removal, was opposition to tho
execution of a law of Congress by the Presi

With all possible sophistry and explanations,
and our position is correct. There is n law
of the land directly forbidding, under penal
ties, the interference with Indians on reser
vation? by any person or persons, save by
the lawfully appointed Indian agents.
To what extent Capt. Ogilby is upheld by
his superior officers in the cts recited, wo
do not know. We prefer to believe all his
interference is disapproved by his superiors,
as in the case of his usurpation of the Indian
asency. His statements as published in the
.Miner show that'he was unfavorable to tho
removal of the Indians to San Carlos, anil
the Coitimisioner of Indian A flairs says he
remonstrated against their removal. Wheth
er sincere or not in his orders for non-intcr-fercuco
with actual removal of them, he was
nevertheless opposed to it, and his influence
would very likely be to some extent felt in
We have so often stated our position with
reference to the civil and military officers in
connection with Indian affairs', that it is

desire to do it ; but this much to any one

On Thursday, two messengers arrived hero '
with messages to Mrs. Lcopoldo Carrillo,
that her husband was imprisionctl at Altar,
antl in default of the payment of $lo,000 by
nine o'clock to-morrow morning, ho would bo
shot, and it is believed here that he will pay
toe cash or die. His nmlitv to pay so largo
a sum on such short notice, is doubted. No
ileiuuitc report of why he has been so treat
ed, has been received, although it is rumor
ed around that lie wan aiding tho
revolutionists with war supplies. Wheu
about to leave for Altar, he was warned not
to go, but he was so well assured that a
strong personal friendship existed between
himself and hrancisco Altaimranoi comman
ding the government forces at Altar, that he
did not hesitate to go. Messrs. TuIIv.
Hughes and others with Mrs. Carrillo called
on Gov. I!ahford on receipt of the news,
and the Gov. addressed a letter to Gov. Pes-
queira, or the person commanding the milita
ry forces near Altar, advising that Mr. Car
rillo is a citizen of Arizona Territory; that if
any unlawful injury were done to his person
or property, ourgovernment would take de

Mrs. Carrillo left early yesterday under an
escort for Altar. Deep feeling is manifested
here, for Mr. Larnllo is regarded one of our

Reports are also here that tho government
troops, early in the week, came into Altar,
and the revolutionists scattered like leaves
