II L Dickson and Henry Lovin have
gono to Prescott where they have
been summoned to appear in the case
of the Santa Fe Pacific railroad com
pauy iu the matter of the taxaiiou of
the railroad lands in this county
These lands havo been taxed at about
uiuety cents per acre and the last leg
islature fixed an arbitrary rate of
cents per acre below which
the assessor could not go This act
the railroad company allege to be un
constitutional and e rather believe it
is but at the same time the assessor
certainly is privileged to fix au assess
ment on the lauds of the company
The value of these lands Is somewhat
indellulte and cannot well be placed
at a high valuation The greater part
of the lands is valueless but some of
the valley lands have been mortgaged
for large amounts The outcome of
the suits Is awaited with Interest

An attempt is new being mado by
tbo Indian bureau of the Interior de
partment to find places for all Indian
girl graduates in the families ot white
people Several young Indian girls
have been taken to Los Angeles from
the school at Fort Mohave Tbo plan
is not a good one and the better plan
would be to teach tho Indians agricul
tural and other pursuits and then sot
tie them down iu colonies with a white
iusttuctor to handle their affairs until
tbey became self governing It might
take several generations but it would
develop the Indian into a citizen The
taking away of the youug girls from
among the tribes will surely have a
demoralizing effect on tboso remain

be harder to handle than the Indian
