C THE APACHE HAS TAMED MANY WARRIORS LABOR DAILY WITH PICK AND SHOVEL. Are not eo Sueceetful at. Farming Sjveral Hundred ex-8ealp Lifters are Induced to Asslat In Build Ing a Difficult Road. Washington, July 0. A quarter of century ago old Ooronlmo ami hi murderous Apaches woro tho scourge and terror of tho Southwost. tfntll (lonera! .Miles nntl his troopers mndo It 80 hot for tho redskins thitt they gnvo up tho conflict mid sued for itence tho word Apacho stood for nil that was cruel Mini fiendish In savage war tare. Today down In Arizona, thot.o mtne ,t Apache Indlnns, writes Frodorlck Ord vav, In tho Post, are wielding nick and shovol and drawing dnllv wage rum Undo Sam. Iixludcd In the ntiiMl.T arc a scorj ir more of (lenin imrV old wnrrli-i, inrnibors of the fe rocious hand that scalped men and woman, butchered little children and howled with imvane glee whllo other vhjtlin slowly perished at the stake. The hiinds tlmt weie dyed with the white man's blood are now calloused with the white man's toll; tomahawk and scalping knlfr have been oxchang Ml for Im'ploinunl of luhor war paint and feather lme Riven away to over alls and Jumper, and the noble red man oats out of a tin dinner iniII. thankful for his iKirk and bonus and plo. From a ration-fed, lependcnt ward of tho nation or a demon on the war path to an Independent, self-support' Jug citizen Is a loin? step forward. To mako tho Indian an Industrious and thrifty citizen has long been regarded as a hopeless task, hut tho Arizona ox porlmont Is full of oncourngoment to friends of tho American aborlKlne, Ah a farmer confining his efforts to tlllluR tho will on a farm he hns been provided with, tho Indian Is rarely a HticcesB. Fow tribal Indians will farm. Tho continuous and oxnctlng toll, tho monotony and Isolation of farm life, are too much for poor lo. Thero Is too long nn Interval between tho planting and tho harvesting, and tho red man Is not long on pntlonco. Ho Is prone to leavo txi much to nn turo, and his crops go uncarcd for and fall. llocauso ho failed as a farmer, tho Jndlnn has boon regarded as tho whlto man's burden, and for a tlmo further efforts to promote his social condition ! nisroiittntieu. Iterrntlv It h dawned iiion the country that the In dian will work at leiat, , Rome of them will. ' The iitcfct remarkable dem onstration of thla faflt la the one which haa occurred In Antona, ilnrliif the past year. In the famous ralley of the Salt rlre" the Oovernment It creeling one of the lilglrtst dams In the world. Ita location la In the Tonto lutein, onro the famous rendetvous of Ueronlmo and hla Apt, oljwe. Until acently the Imstu was almost luaccesalhle, liclne: surrounded on all aide by poritaiidlculnr walls thousands of fret hla.li. ami with only a sIiirIo nnrrow mid purlloiis trail lend- Ing Into It. Hemimiits of this hand of once dreaded savages still llvo there. hut their chief t exiled, and the spirit of the tribe npparontly broken. It wns necessary to construct a road Into the basin, and for a greater part of the way It must literally be hewn from tho walls of the rlror canyon. La bor was soorcu nnd IiIrIi priced. These untoward conditions taxed the Ingen uity of tho Oovernment engineers. Washington accepts no excuse. The mandate went forth In terse terms: "llnlld a wagon road with enay tirades Into the basin." The engineer turned missionary and held h bowwow with 1 1 hand of I'oato Ajmchea. (leronlnio's old scalp- llftera. who were camping round about him. Ills eloquence proved Ir lealstlble, and wveral hundred Indiana forthwith went on tho (Sovernmont pay mil. The road was completed a inarvelous piece of work and the Indiana weie In no small degree re aponalble for Ita prompt construction. Dropping their picks whin the road I n uvini'ieitm, inuj umik up iue snov el and acmpor am! are today working Ion the canals and ditches. The prob lem Is solved. The Indian will work. What Justice could be more poetic than that their arrows and hatchets "should be turned Into picks nnd shov els, nnd their labor be utilized to hrliiR the precious water to the land which they had so often enriched with tho hlood of tho whlto man? The succesH of tho experiment In Arizona Is already hearing fruit else where. On tho Colorado river, near Yuma, tho YutntiH and Cncopahs are building mnsHlvo lovces, clearing nway the donso underbrush nloiiR the canals nnd bowing the fuel for the pnwor plants. In Northern California ami Southern OreRon, In the "hind of burnt out tires," the Klamnths and Modocs aro getting ready to dig ditches. In Washington tho Ynklmas are seeking nn optortimltyto extend Government Irrigation to their valley. In fnr Northern .Montana 1.000 lllnckfoot In dians hnvo applied for jobs on the big St. Mary project. Th" Indian Is coming to the front a' a most opportune time fji'ioi In th West was nevr so sun ice as at pic sent, nor was t ever more crcatlj noeded'. One by one the popular lll.ivlon OMernlnir Wrstei-n l.vpta and rharar tera are IkIiir dispelled b nearer ac HHlntance. The plcturwqu com boy, whose regular pastime was shooting MP the town, and the bad man with bis noicned mm and Jgs private grav ard have been relegaled to the llml of the past. Only the Indian wns left, unkempt ami dirty, nnd now even ho becomes commonplace by censing to bo a ration-fed ward, depeudeiid upon the nation's charity. Tho paint, tho feathers, the boar claws, and the torn ahawk of tho noble red man are gone hence. No more ho stalks about with severe nnd lordly mien, The gaj col orod robo of tho Amcho has given place to tho sweatshop Jumper and blue Jeans.
