JTrom the Prescott Miner of the
&8th ult., we condense as follows:
Gen. Crook, upon receiving in
formation that Ochocalma talked
of going to the Colorado river to
fight the Mohavo Indians for the
part their Chief Irataba and
others of the tribe had taken in
ferreting out the murderers of the
Loring party, went to Camp Hua
lapai, and ordered Companies K,
B and C, of the 5th Cavalry, (Cap
tains J. W. Mason, R. H. Mont
gomery and Emil Adams) with a
force of between 80 and 100 friend
ly Hualapai Indians, under com
mand of Capt. Mason, to go after
them. The good results are given
by Capt. Mason to Gen. Crook in
the following communication:

forty (40) Indians and wounding
many more, also capturing eightl
(8) women ana ten (10) children.
The ranchenas were on the brow
of a deep canyon, and to surround
them was impossible, thus allow
ing some to escape who otherwise
would have not.
Officers and men behaved splen
didly, and I cannot speak too
highly of our Hualapai scouts.
Their scouting was excellent, and
when the fight came off they were
not a bit behind tho soldiers. I
congratulate the Commanding
General and the country in hav
