Phoenix, Ariz., Dec. 29. 1897. Tho Attorney General, JYVa&hinciton, D. C. to your favor of Juno 28th, 'S. B. S. F. 8757-1895" relative to alleged outrages committed by the Sheriff of CocoUlno county, Arizona against the Navajo Indians, I have to report that I hivo made as full Inves tigation as is possiblo and 11 nd that complaint to bo without any founda tion in fact. Befoio begiunlng tho luvostisralion I had transcribed in form of affidavit tho letter of comnlaint written bv ". j - Auuitlnnal rainier Upton aud sent tho samo to bim with tho request, that he swear tcAtho ssm Jq taj F?1- - would takoTthe ilMmritavUMivJwka had know1e.lilWfitaw-iWVr marked Ex. iA.VW , U v ,1 x 1 L 3. .'.Ali'SiivZ-iM and tilings thetcin setfotth were stated upon Information mcicly and be could not inako oath to the same (though iu his letter he had uot iudlcatcd that tho snuio was stated upon information, but had alleged the samo to be facts). I havo waited for the statements from tho Indians thiough Mr. Tiptou but I havo failed to receive auy Information from them. I hcicwlth cncloso tho affidavits of Sheriff Canieion, Dan M. Francis, County Troasuicr, Deputy Sheriff Black, James R. Wallace- aud R. D. Joucs, maikediespectivclyEx. C, D., E., !'., aud G. These meu nro of un doubted Integrity and veracity and 1 am bound to take their statements as ti no. Moreover, an nualysis of Mr. Tip ton's letter which ho cannot swear to, oi'ght to convince nnyono it seems to mo of his reckless liso of tho hyperbole. The Indian vocabulary is very limited aud tho imagination and A ivid coloring of tho wi'iter is easily discovered when he reports that tho Indians repented to him such sentences as follows: "They pleaded for a reasonable lime within which to get out; but even this was inexorably denied; aud, amid the touching cries of suffering and feat- stricken children aud tho weeping of V.-u-ef-nti icheir -rnotn-Ts, 'Tneirtitttr flocks were rounded up and pushed 1 north, thiough deep snow, towards tho Little Colorado River with re lentless haste, the posse keeping up an intermittent lire witli rifles nnd re volvets, frightening sheep, squaws and pappooses out of their wits." Tho wholo report of Additional Far-i nier Tipton is based upon statements of which ho kuew nothing at tho time aud was wiitten with all tho dash of a novelist. From tho affidavits enclosed it will be seen: That by tho laws of the Tcr ritoiy transient herds may bo assessed at any time during tho year; that Nav ajo Indians aro subject to taxation when off the reservation tho eamo as other poople, there being no treaty stipulations to tho contrary; that there was no outrage pel petratcd upon the Indians; that there was no troublo or conflict between tho officers and the Indians; that theio was no snow upon the ground, aud that the sheep were diiven across tho river without any loss whatever and without injury; that theio was no display of tiro arms by tlio oflicers, nor any shots II red, nor any attempt to intimidato tho Indians; that thoro wcro no tepees uor corrals burned, uor any proporty of any kind destroyed; in fact not an allegation of Additional Farmer Tin ton is sustained by tho testimony I bavb'beeH able to obtain.

By advocating statehood tho governor knows thnt ho will hold bis job, for ho well kuows that the present administration is opposed to tho admission of Arizona. Tlio governor will bo offered an op poi luulty to use his iufluenco for state hood, for the bill for admission will bo pieseutcd first and pushed to a voto. It will then dovolop that the administration is bitterly opposed to admission and the governor's advocaoy of statehood will be u flat failure but It will uot causo him much regret as ho still holds his job. v; Tho governor is not to blame for udvoeating a thing that he knows tho administration will not tolerate.
