For years men who wish to make fortunes in min ing have been looking with longing pyi s toward the land held by this tribe and it is now hoped to interest President Riose veil in a plan to set asido certain valleys in partition to the Indians and throw open the mountains to the prospectors. There has always been resentment among the whites because one of the richest parts of the country was set apart for the red men. Tho chief men of the Navajo tribe exhibit at the set tlements at times bridles, saddles and clothing weighed dowu with gold and si'ver which came from the mines on the reservation. Field ,fc Farm.
