Genti.fmes: lam In receipt of your com
munication of tlie Bill of December, lust,
being a petition of certuln residents and tux
payers of i oconlno county. Arizonu. praying
that Ktcps be taken to restrain certain Na
vajo Indians, whose rcserratlon adjoins the
abovn named county, on the south, from
trrpa.sl ng upon tho lands of the wool and
cattle growers of th it section.
It Is represented that the Navajos not
only herd their flocks on ranges legally held
tj America"?, s only -"ahe free nso of
crater and water-rights developed at errat
expense hy wool growers, but cut dams, steal
hon.es. and commit other depredations, as
well as threaten und Intimidate the herders
of thosnld Americans, und threaten violence
U protests are made against these outrages.
In reply. I have to state that your petition
was referred to tho Commissioner of Indian
Affairs for consideration and report, and I
herewith transmit a copy of his reply thereto,
dated the 11th Instant, for your Information.
The fommNsIonrr states that many of the
Mavajos have lived off the reservation from
time Immemorial; have settled In the vicin
ity of springs aud other water sources, graz
ing their herds and flocks on the lands of the
adjacent country. In many Instances taking
homesteads under the public land laws of
the United States, which they have endeav
ored and mi e still endeavoring to obtain title
to, and that the whites havo pushed them
selves Into this country and endeavored to
dispossess the Indians of lands which tight
fully. In many Instances, belong to them.
lie also states that steps that have been
taken by the Department to develop a water
upply upon the reservation for the use of
tho Indians, with the view of returning to
and settling roving Mavajos thereon, and
the present condition of that work, which, It
seems. Is not amplo to supply tho needs of
all the Indians.
In the meantime, tho Commissioner has
advised the Acting Agent In charge of the
Navajos. directing him to warn them
against Interfering with tho persons or
property of tbn whites, and to report upon
the situation there, with recommendations.
D. It. Fkancis, Secretary.
Tin1 Coniniissiiinri'tt teply in b'icf
itiih :ih follows:
That tho Commissioner was familiar with
the subject of alleged Interference by the
Navajos with the cattle and wool growers
of this section.
Many of tho Navajos havo lived off the
reservation fiom tlinelmniemorlal. settled In
tho viclnllvol springs or other water sources
and grazed their flocks and herds upon the
lands of the adjaicl.t coui.try; In some In
stances they have taken homesteads under
tho public land laws of tho United States and
have, endeavored and are still endeavoring to
obtain tttlo to thn lands settled upon. The
whites havo pushed thmnselvos Into the
country and endeavored to dtsoosscss the
Indians of lands which rightfully. In many
Instances, belong to thorn.
Water Is scarce on the reservation, says
the Commissioner, and In 1890 steps were
taken and an appropriation of H0.U0O ob
tained with which, together wlthtJO.OOO more
that was then available. Irrigation works
wore started on tho reservation. The work
is not finished yet and will not bo for some
time. In thn tnountlmo them Is not sufficient

Injlans and their flocks and herds, and to
furco them back upon the reservation would

I do not think, says tho Commissioner,
that any action looking to the foiclble re

be taken until tho water Supply upon the
reservation has been fully doveloped and a
sufllclent supply obtalnid not only for the
Indians thereon, but for those who may be
