Ir occurs, and has occurred more than once tbat soldiers Bent in to Clifton for dispatches and orders, have neglected theirduty in await ing important messages, have managed to conceal themselves about town so that the operator could not find them, and when found after several searches, em bracing honrs of what might be valuable time, have coolly pocket ed the message for the time being, giving themselves up to pleasure meanwhile, and departing when it suited their colored convenience. If necessary the individuals can be marked ont, and if for the public good it is desirable, will be. Thx House Public Lands Com niittee has decided to report favor ably Judge Payroll's bill to de prive aliens of the right to acquire and hold real estate in the District of Columbia or any of the Terri tories -of the United States. The maasure is as follows: Be it enacted. Tbat no non-resident alien or foreigner, nor any resident alien or foreigner who has not declared his intention to be come a citizen of the United States, nor any incorporation or associa tion where, at most, one-tenth of its stock or right of property is owned or controlled by aliens Or foreigners, shall acquire or own, hold or possess, by right, title, or descent accruing hereafter, any real estate in any of the Territories of the United States; provided, that the provisions of this act shall not apply to the real estate necess ary for the construction and operation of any railroad. If ore Apache Hellishnr-tt!. As was predicted by tho Clarion Graham County is now the seat of Apache operations again, and the same old route by way of Eagle Creek is the one taken by them. The criminal carelessness of leav- ing the whole eastern lino of the reservation unguarded is once more apparent This line stretches along in a northerly and southerly direction for upwards of seventy five miles through a mountainous country, thinly peopled, abound ing in natural fortifications and hiding places, and having many trails which all seem to converge in New Mexico at convenient points and thence on ofl'oring easy egress into Chihuahux This has always been the side of the reservation, at least during lat9 years, from which tho Apaches have broke out on their raids and it seoms strange that no precaution has been taken to prevent the repetition, which is now already come, during the present season. Clifton is a nat nral base for operations against the Apaches. A large proportion of the outrages committed have been in the immediate vicinity. We have railway and telegraphic com' munication with the S. P. K. R. at Lordsbnrg, and a special train there hence, or here thence, could always be had on a few moments notice. A line of wire can be easily and cheaply extended to any desirable point on Eagle Creek and if desired could be continued ti Apache or Thomas. If Clifton were a military post, the Blue, Frisco and Eagle could be patroll ed, the Apaches could be prevented from rising the trails out from this side of the reservation, by 6mall forces properly stationed and within convenient communication with the main body, if necessary, stationed here. As things look now, there is probability of other fresh bands lea ing the reservation and perhaps the best thing which could happen to .New Mexico and Arizona would be for the entire reservation to turn loose, Chiri- cahnas, White Mountains, Masca leros and Ex-Scouts. There would be war at our doors, but the thing woidd be settled finally and the reservation become a thing of the imt We have every confidence in General Miles, his ability and his cudeavor. He is doing every thing in his power to down Geronimo: but wo do not have nil confidence in his subordinates. 1 hree now under arrest, and ' the nuujuo' might bo added to without wrong or malice.

GoTtitsoB Zclick has appointed H. K. Tweed ot Tombstone direct or of the Insane Asylum vice N. B. Walker declined. The Massachusetts Legislature still cling to old ideas, and has refused to remove the disability of atheists ns witnesses. They insist, in tho state named, that to be be lieved the donbter must bo dis honest enough to say ho believes. IvEror.Ts continue to roach town of restlessness on tho part of tho Apaches nnv on tUo reservation. Tho scouts are said to be preparing to break out, and it is thought that tho White Mountain Apaches will join them. Troops at the posts liavo been ordered to the reservntion to an ticipate and guard against tie threatened outbreak, but as long as the Iudians retain freedom of movement within their bound, it is quite an easy matter for them ti slip by the soldiers, and escape at convenient points along tho line. The necessary authority ought to be given General Miles to put the whole reservation nndor arrest and remove from its bounds such of the Apaches as he might see fit Were the Apaches now on the reservation but removed, it would render the task of following and killing or capturing the hostiles an easier one. uovering sucn a large extent of territory as it doos, with the Indians in sympathy aiding and abetting the Chirica huas, the reservation offers a con venient refuge for the followers of Geronimo. And when worn out with fatigue, closely pressed by troops or citi zens, or in need of ammunition or supplies, it is made a new base of operations, from which to sally forth in some new unexpected direction, to rob and kilL To the citizens of New Mexico and Ari zona it is a vital question, and all should join in demanding the re moval of every Apache from either territory.

The county jail has only six in mates at present Uneasiness being felt for the safety of persons at Cunningham's ranch deputy sheriff Randall Messrs. Porter and Michelen went up Tuesday to warn them of danger from Indiana There is a report to the effect that there will be a meeting of the county Democratic committee here next Monday. ?No political talk is heard but soon there will be music in the air. Tho Arizona Copper Company and the A. & N. M. Ry., paid into tho county treasury last week $9,431.71 the rmount of taxes due from those corporations as deter mined by the District Court. News having reached here that Mr. Thurston had been killed by Indians near Bear Springs on Sun day, Messrs. Stevens, Bolan and Michelena immediately mounted and stai ted to warn settlers at tho cienega and other places of pending danger. a. Li.

Solomonville is not thronged with visitors from tho valley for the harvest moon is near at hand and farmrs are impatient of every hour which detains them from their golden fields which will soon invite the coming of the reaper. Veritas. MalTord Nitlinps. " 111! . . ., KnlTi.rd. Arizona. M.iJ 15. Tho Indian war has been push- ed to our very doors. Tho killing of Frank Thurston, of Pima, on last Sunday, was a sad affair. He left a wife and seva, children, all girls but cue, and be a 6aall boy tbit will be cf so telp to the fam ily for c. t-isber of years to come. Judge Sias who happened to be in that part of the valley at the time of the killing set a good example for others, by donating twenty-five dollars for tho benefit of tho be reaved family. In connection with this vexed question, iustead of sending a pe tition to congress to pension an in dividual widow, as was proposed by a Tucson paper a short time ago, I would suggest it bo made general, except in cases vhe"ro they are left well provided for. We have four widows now in this val ley who shonld bo pensioned, viz: Mrs. Farron and Mrs. Thurston, of Pima, and the two Mnsdanies Wrights, of Layton. I have on hand some blanks sent from Wash ington for parties who have sus tained losses by Indian depreda lious in the shape of property, with which to fill ont and make application to tho department to have those losses made good. Why should not a widow estimate the value of her husband and ask the government to make good her loss as far as possible. Hpr hus band could not bo returned to her but she might be relieved finan cially. These are questions that I think should be agitated. Local news is scarce. Mr. Ijams sent ont a small band of cattle, 24 head, to his ranch near Wilcox a few days ago. Mr. John Hall ad ay, of Pima, is importing a fresh supply of farm machinery, and the several head- era from Thomas to Solomonville will be in operation in about ten days gathering in the golden har vest.
