It is with pleasure that the propri
etors of the Phvnix Hkrald an
nounee to the puhlic their intention
of publishing a daily newspaper on
ami after the first of Oi tob-.r. Tii's
step taken in order to fill a want
long full in the Territory, for a good
and trustworthy daily newspaper,
and in the firm belief that our cflortf
to raise the standard of journalism
in the Territory will be duly appre
ciated by our fellow citizen?, and
their support given accordingly. VTc
will endeavor, as we have done with
the Semi-Weekly ; to make the Daily
Hebald a success, by miking it a
live newspaper in every respect.
Arizona new3 received by telegraph
will be made a specialty, and it will
always be our aim to give an early,
complete and reliable account of al
the happenings in the Territory. In
addition to this, strenuous efforts will
be made to make minin : news a fea
ture of interest and reliability, at the
same time a daily record of the news
of the world will be found in our
telegraphic columns. The freight
arriving at Maricopa destined for
northern and central Arizona, 'the
Di-jht previous, will be found in each
i-isue; also correct reports of sa!c3 at
the mining boards of S.iu Francisco.
Ix another column will be found
an interesting article on the condi
tion of the Indians in tin's Territory
as given to the Herald by General
Hammond It treats this question in
a clear, concise manner, showing the
bad effects of mismanagement. It
rail for better police regulations,
and asks for schools and other moans
of civilization. At the San Carlos
reservation are kept the troublesome
Indians, and many of them have asked
for land to cultivate and make per
manent homes for themselves. As
many Indiana are engaged in farm
ing pursuits, farming implements
should be given them, instead of the
wooden plows and the miserable fl.ile
tint they now use. 'With proper at
tention and honest men as their guar
dian;, they will support themselves

Attachments Withdrawn,
The Citiiei is pleased to learn that
all the attachments issued against .T.
JJ. Collin, at Camp Thomas, have
been withdrawn and his credit re
stored. The scare was caused by the
fatal aSray, in which 3Ir. Collins
was an actor, but upon investigation
there wai found to be no cause for
alarm and the creditors have with
drawn their suits, paying their own
roM.3. It affords us pleasure to
notice this fact for Mr. Collins has
enough of actual troubles without
placing upon him any that areyimply
It was not Gen. Stewart L. Wood

The following interview cofcrrn
ing the condition of the Indians
within our borders was very kindly
accorded by General Hammond,
Indian inspector, to the Herald's
Interviewer, on Thursday. As the
General had just returned from a
protracted tour through the Terri
tory, during which he closely in
spected and scrutinized the condition,
conduct and mode of living of the
aborigines, it will be found not only
interesting but instructive. The sug
gestions which Ganeral Hammond
has seen fit to make, should receive
that consideration due thorn as the
re-ult of the obicrvatifm and reflec
tion of one of our most prominent
Indian authorities:
Reporter: General, how long have
you been ia the Territory on your
present duty; and what have you
accomplished up to date?
General Jlnnmond: I have been
here twice on my present duty, I ar
rived here first lata in February, and
left in 31 ay, but returned the first of
July and have bean here since; ex
amining public lands and Indian
reservations,ad have almost finished
my labors, having only the Colo
rado River, the Z ini, and Jlohave
reservations to examine. I will then
lcavo for Xcff Mesico in order to in
vestigate the Warm Spring and
Mescalero agencies in that Terri
tory. Reporter: In what condition did
you find the Arizona Indians gen
erally ?
General Hammond: I found the
Pimas and Maricopa? loafing about
all over thecouatry in a erribly dis
organized state, doiai what they
pleaded, regardless of all law and
Reporter: Can you suggest any
remedy for this condition of things,
General ?
General Hammond: I would not
only suggest, but would insist.
and urge that they be taken in hand
by the civil authorities, and he pun
ished 83 severely for all offences
against the law as the whiles. This
is absolutely necewary, a3 the agents
can oniy eeicise suttiority y. item
the limits of their respective
agencies, and the Pimas do not re
strict themselves to their own res
ervations, but wander over the coun
try, and, as the agent has no nica; s
to enforce discipline except his fists,
tnerc is no war to Keep them con
fined, as up to the present time,
there h:i3 been no allowance made
to any agent to enable him to enlist
police for that purpose. I have re
commended that the Government
make a liberal provision for Indian
police so that we can enlist a siu'H
cient number of men to enforce dis
cipline and good conduct within the
limits of the several reservations.
Outside of the reservations the civil
authorities must take them strictly
in hand " I think the people of this
Territory should take the disorgan
ized and undisciplined condition cf
the Indians, especially the young
men, mto very serious consideration,
for it is very evident if they persist
in their present course of loafing and
petty thieving, it will inev.tably lead
to a conflict between the Indians and
the white settlers, which it is the
duty of every well disposed person j
to prevent and I certainly think the
public health demands the expulsion
and exclusion from towns and vil
lages of Indian women, but this can
be done, of course, only by the civil
authorities. If authority can only
bo obtained to enlist u suitable
police force the agents will cheer
fully co-operate with the civil
officers in any action which may be
undertaken to reform this condition
of affairs.
Reporter: General, are there not
many encroachments by settlers on
the Indian reservations?
General Hammond: Yes, but the
habit ot squatting oa Indian reserva
tions, both by Americans and Mexi
cans, 1 regard as resulting princi
pal from the neglect of the Gov
ernment to mark the boundaries of
the reservations, so that the people
may know which is public, and
which reserved land.
Reporter: Do the Indians in any
way endeavor to better tlieir condi
tion or contribute to their support?
General Hammond: The Punas,
Papagoj and Apaches, do a great
deal more work and cultivate aniuch
greater quantity of land than people
usually give them credit for. The
quality of wheat raised by the Indi
ans is super;or to that raised by the
whites, and brings troui a quarter to
three-quarters of a cent a pound more
than that raised by the whites. TIip
total amount of wheat raised by the
Pimas and Maricopas, is notices tlum
f TO trillions of pounds, and by mer-
chsnts is estimated at over three
millions of pounds. Beside this the
San Carlos Indians have raifed a suf
ficient quantity of wheat and barley
to add largely to their means of liv
ing. Reporter: Is there any disposition
shown among ths Indians to abandon
tribal relations?
General Hammond: Yes, there is a
growing disposition among them to
do so. ICine heads of families on
the San Carlos reservation, have this
year declared their intention of sev.
ering their connection with the tii'oe,
give up their rations, and of asking
that they be allowed to pre-empt
land in swralty, in order that they
may establish permanent homes.
Among them are Eskemius, one of
the most renowned of Apache war
chiefs; also, Nadeski and Segually,
for all of whom I have selected lands,
and hope to make such arrangements
as will secure them for the:-e people.
Reporter: What Indians are on the
San Carlos reservation, General?
General Harumoad: The Mountain
Yunias and Mohavcs, and the follow
ing bands of Apaches: Chiricua
huas, Coyoteros, Sierra Plancas and
TonU s, and the Warm Spring, Ojos
Reporter: What is their present
condition ?
General Hammond: There is not a
school nor even a Christian minister,
I am.sorry to say, among thorn.
Reporter: Is theve any movement
on foot to establish schools among
them, Genera'.?
General Hammond : Yes, the Indi
an OiUce is thoroughly awake to the
necessity of establishing schools
among these people, ana I have just
returned from the Pima villages on
the Gila river, where I have selected
a locntion and made estimates for a
boarding school to accommodate one
hundred scholars. I did this under
orders from the Commission! r, and.
for the last half year, have been
urging the necessity of boarding
schools among all these Indians.
Reporter: Why boarding schools,
General ?
General Hammond: Because I do
net regard day schools as sufficiently
efficacious, as they forget at night
what they have been taught in the
d.iy. I have also been ordered to lo
calu boarding schools on the Mohave
reservations in Xc-w M xico. j
Ariz'inan: Sometime ago Mr.
W. C. Collier wrote a letter to the
Expnsiror, in which be made a state
inent coacar.iinj the reran fa'al itc
cMeat, which occurred at the T:rer
mint, n fljciirig ssriou-.l Tiron the
management and especially u,io:i
Mr. Helm the Supi-ri'itPiuient. A
few days sine e the foicman, u.i we
are informed, armed himct li with a
pistol and taking C)liier unawares,
forced him at the end of the weapon
tn the office of Messrs. Helm and Al
lien, where he asked him if he was
I the anther of the letter in question.
f to tt'h iotl PfllH'V ronTtfi.l in ttio ft! ,-,-r,
ai.ve. jie men ciornsnaea an
apology which Collier refused to
make, and in the discussion which
followed, Collier escaped, and pro
cured fire arms and stationed him
self upon a hill, nearby, and sent
word to ihe attacking party, that he
was rpadv lo fight. Justice Cambelr
being informed of what was likely to
happen, put in an appearance at this
mom en t, and succeeded in quieting
the belligerents averting thereby an
other scene of bloodshed.

lished the marriage of John R. Da 11,
wholesale liquor merchant at Phoe
nix, to Miss Frankie Myers, also of
Phccnix. The happy aff.iir took place
at the Dudley House, in the presence
of a large number of invited guests.

and the bridemaid, Miss Ida Jones.
After the ceremony was performed
a magnificent dinner was spread by
the proprietor of the Dudley House,
to which ample justice as done, the
wine flowing treely, and if it was the
same kind that Mr. D.ill so kindly
furnished the Miner office it certain
ly made them all feel jolly. May
Mr. and Mrs. D. live long and pros
perity attend them, is our wish.
Another savage murder was com
mitted at the penitentiary at San
Quintin, "Wednesday morning.
As the prisoners were ascending the
main stairway returning from break
fast about 7 o'clock and just as they
reached the head of the flight of
stairs, a prisoner known as Scotty
stepped behind Smith, the Downie
ville stage robber, and seizing him
with one hand, stabbed hiui seven
times with a lare knife made from
a file. One of the cuts severed the
jugular vin, and every one of them
were of fatal character. Smith fell
an 1 died ii n few minutes. The
murderer hf.? been in prison for
some time and has been regarded as
a rlauserous character. He escaped
ju;t after the fire in the prison some '
two years ago, and was recaptured, j
How he got the knife is not known. '

Silver Sett: The ITuggot Company
are timbering tlieir main shaft
which is down a hundred feet. When
that is clone they will cross cut the
ledge and aUo sink another hun
dred feet and aysin cut the ledgj.
The same company have also another
shaft down sixty feet on a spur which
runs from tho - Mack Morris side
ground and about sixty feet from the
Mack Morris' south line. It also
shows good ore, silver glance, and
will assay at least $1000. The pay
"streak" is two feet wide. - 'Tis need
less to speak" of the Mack Morris
mine, all understand that when mon
ey is needed it is oly necessary for
Mack and Cook to dig it out. 'Tis
always in sight and the expenditure
of a limited amount of elbow grease
never fails to bring it to the surface.
A letter from Capt. Powlett to D.
G. Chilson, received yesterday, con
firms our statement that a mill has
been ordered for working Richmond
Basin and vicinity ores, and instruc
tions given to prepare the ground to
receive the" sanie.
Ore from the Julian mine
wroked in the Isabella mill, gave a
return of 507 53, which was most
satisfactory to Mr. Reiss. the lessee of
the mine, and a better return than he
expected, which is most complimen
tary to Mr. Palmer who Superintend
ed its reduction.
Ar'v.inaii .- We saw a petition being
circulated Tuesday asking the Presi
eent to re-appoint the Hon. Charles
G. W. French as Chief Justice of
Arizona, which is very properly
being signed. In fact we don't
believe there will be in our commu
nity where Judge French is so well
known, one dissenting voice. We
believe the people have confidence in
his ability, impartiality and sound
legal knowledge, and wish him to be
retained in the position which he has
heretofore so acceptably filled.
The grading parties south of Las
Yegas h:ive nil been increased and
the work is making fnt progress.
Tho cut near Canoncito is the most
difficult and expensive of the con
tracts let thus far. Gregg & Co.
