McMillan's district ailj..ins the Globe,
and gives promise of djual wealth
and iiuporta .ee. Moore district is a
new one; lying just ca?t of the Hum
bug d'Strict, turiaee iadii aliens are
good, as samples of lock tthit h may
be seen at the llieorder's office,
abundantly show. Only a few
claims have, as yet, biea recorded,
but we are informed that it is a gvoj
mint ral field and sevctal prospectors
are looking it over. This dist iet
has the tame ailvantag: s of wa-o:i
road and contiguity to I'h. c-nlx th tt
are possessed by the Cave C:eek
country. Of the Vulture it is well
known that it has yielded more old
than any one mbte Li Aiizon i. We
arc glad t j h am that tlx re is a pros
pect of its iigaln bei.tg extensively
worked and believo that utuli r its
new management none of the follies
f the old nill be enacted, and this
mine will hereafter be a substantial
cause of ptide to every Arizoit'an
who desires the mineral development
of the Territory. We might as well
add Humbug district to the above
list, fer although it is in Yavapai
c ui:ty, ye: its supplies must of neet s
slty come from our town and valley.
What ourwirw Legislators meant in
allowing the rapai i y ,f the Yavapai
delegation to bite that little three
cornered chunk ot humbug out ot
the fair proportions of this county
weare at a lo.-s to know. But in
Fpite of this l'hoenlx must supply
Humbug district, the conformation
of the country is such that its mines
cannot afford to receive rations and
forage bv way of a mountain road
flwny off to I're.vott, when a much
better an.l shorter road will reach
Plioc.tis, .-ml cheaper supplies.

of this Department at this time docs
not argue iiielfieioiicy, dishonesty,

Wildx according to military rank,

I . a
command and is eucceadtug to it in
the ordinary course of military
Iu the light of the peculiar sur-
vieis r.iiuireu oi tne mintary, in
keeping the peace within the borders
we deem it unwise on the pa:t of the
War Dep tituieiit to cause a change
of comiinnidt rs, in as much as Gen
Kautz is fully ac iuiintel with the
situation of afi'airs, the strength and
character of the wily ci.eniy we
have to deal with, and ho ch iracter
of the coutttry which must rcc isiuti-
alv be fcittt d over in search of the
renegade Indians, Gen. Wilcox will
h ive all these important lessons to
leara and in learning them he too
may engender the animosity of new s
p iper"i'et:erals who a-suine t i know
more about commanding a miiitavy
dept.rt'nent than the ( ier.e al him-Fi-li.
(Jen. Kautz and Lis eslimabhj

not hope and reasonably expect, f r
the sake of the sao ty of our ci;i'.en-i
and the security of the ir jirojh ritv
iu the more d tneerous fccctioas f
the Territory, that all men and
ncwspjpt rs. and the military under

heartily in putting forth every pos

which now reignp, and to visit
speedy and summary punishment
