The account of the battle between

otherwise maltreated her. Verily the

. Is Congress last Tuesday, while the
Indian appropriation bill was under
consideration, our delegate, Hon. M
.A. SmltL, made an attack on the pres
ent system of educating the Indians
He declared that the .Carlisle and
Hampton schools were a mistake; that
an Indian eould not be civilized by
teaching him to read and write and
sing a psalm. The Indian, he said,
. must receive an industrial education,
but it must be given him in the vicinity
of bis home, not in the East. In this
bill, be said, $2,500,000 was wasted
Mr. Walker (Rep.) of Massachusetts
agreed withMr. Smith that the pres
ent policy was unsatisfactory, illogi
cal and impracticable. He moved to
strike out the appropriation for the
Carlisle school. This motion was
voted down. Mark Smith has done

Returned from Dawson.
The following letter was received by
Mr. E. P. Drew and explains the situa
tion at Dawson as seen by Mr. Bobt,
Hughes, of Casa Grande, who left for
the gold fields last summer and who is
now on bis return home :
Los Ahgri.es, Jan. 9th, 1898.

ago, but have beea sick since I came
here and have not felt much like writ
I wired you from Seattle but did not
hear from yon direct, so I made ar
rangements.' Well, Drew, I had to
leave Dawson. I was short of supplies
and could not get as much as a can of
baking powder, for the reason there
was nothing there. Men who had
their orders in and their money for six
months were short, so I was compelled
to take to the ice for it or starve, and
I had a hard time of it getting out.

could not buy dogs and was 47 days
making the trip. I would cot make
the trip again for five thousand dollars
Well, as to Alaska, Drew, it ia a good
place to stay away from if yon have
not got a barrel of money. There are
very rich diggings on El Dorado Creek,
but take El Dorado out, and it fa off.
There would never have been any ex
citement but for it. You can not get a
foot of ground within twenty miles of
that creek and - there is no quartz in
that district, it is all of glacier forma

have-reached a depth of forty feet. No
one can imagine how difficult it is to

will cost you a dollar and a half to two
I dollars a pound to have your supplies
packed np. It costs from twenty to
30 cents a pound to have your supplies
packed up to the diggings in El Dorado
and you can't get them up at that some
times of the year. I would have put
in the winter there if I had an ample
supply of grnb, but I lost about half of
my grab at White Horse rapids. We
lost our Doal so mere was nothing lor
me only to pull out. The A. C. Co.
sent about 400 men down to Fort
Yukon where they could get supplies

on and they have to chop wood for four
dollars a cord, to pay for it. The men
who went down with me went down In
preference to going out on the ice. "
If yon anticipate going to Dawson to
mine I would advise yon by all means
to stay where yon are; the life of Daw
son is short and so is every placer camp
where there is no quartz. If yon have
anything to sell in Dawson yon are all

the papers. There is no shortage of
supplies but there was not a restaurant
open in Dawson when I left, nor a
I store, and when the restaurants were
open meals were from $3 to $5 each.
Nothing more of any importance this
time. Yours truly,
Editor Randolph, of the Republican,
telegraphs hia paper from Chicago
under date of January 25 that "work on
the Prescott & Eastern railroad, con
necting the Big bug and Chaparral
mining district 01 Arizona witn the
outside world, will begin not later
than March 1. This was dedided upon
to-day at a meeting of the directors of
the Santa Fe, Prescott & Phoenix Rail-
road comoanv. held in their office in
this city. The road will leave the
main line at the Point of Rocks, five
miles north of Prescott, and run in an
easterly and southerly direction twenty-
six miles to Joe Mayers, at Big Bug.
The coal of construction will be in the
neighborhood of half a million dollars.
The road will be operated by the- S. F.
P. fc P. and it is expected that trains
will be running over the line not later
than July 1. The opening of this rail-
mid will mflan mueh to Arizona. The
line will tap one of the richest mining
regions in the territory, and Prescott
be given a decided impetus in all
varied lines of business."
Ho Roasts Hanna and Predicts
A reporter for the Gazette Wednes
day eveDini? met flntrmoi a t r . i
ofOhio, who is temnnrftrll h.i ",. 1
Phoenix, and asked him what 1 J Hon BLniTer Herman, commissioner of
thought of the senatorial election hi the United States land office, informed
Ohio. The colonel reolied Us n,t there would be no further
"Private disoatches from nbi .f
that Hanna has been elected by one1
majority. The feeling is that it
done by bribery, and the indic&Uond
are that the matter is not yet settled. j
If it turns out to be true that Hani
na was elected by corrtmt means
shall carry the case to tha TTnfw
States Benate and apply for just.ee i
there. In that case the Republban
party has one more chance to live. If
Hanna goes into the senate the Ret u
lican party is dead for a good m ur
years to come. i
"It is very amusing to see the Ri-
publican papers all over the eounU
rejoice, but this rejoicing comes frod
papers supported largely by patrous
and surplus boodle dealt out by . to
trusts. . -
"Hanna had mmiona of dollars af Ht.
command at Columbus. What a il ,
ulous spectacle! The capiUl "at Col
umbus, Ohio, filled up by governmeni
employes working in the interest o-
the trusts! The laboring men of th
country and the fanners no longei
have a home in the Bepablican party,
because it has become the party of cor
ruption. Thousands of honest Repub
licans must leave it.
"In Ohio Hannaism was fairly beaten
before the people. He ran bebiiid the
ticket 8C.O0O votes, and the indicationj
are that 40,000 of these were old sol
djers who stood by the Republics o j wrt
all its days and gave their servicv-a to
their country in its defense. No-- tfca
Republican press is seeking to :.rb
them from it.
"Our people will earry this matter to
the United States senate and demand a
hearing there, and with such men as
Senator Foraker, Quay, Piatt, Cabot
Lodge, Horr and Allison and soaae
western senators acting as jurors, Han
naism and his boodle methods will run
still another gauntlet before he serves
in that capacity.
"We have in Hanna'a election in
dorsed everything that is corrupt in
politics, fathered the single gold stacd
ard, driven the poor people from the
ranks of the Republican party, placed
it absolutely under the control of the
trusts of the country an enormous cor
ruption fund that will threaten to car
ry the next election. But the same in
fluence that carried 80,000 votes away
from tue Republican party in Ohio this
L time will defeat the Republican tmrtv
I predict that If Hanna go as
United States senator this time iiat
Ohio will go Democratic at the nsxt
election and that in 1900 the Democrats
wiU elect their president."

The bill granting right-of-way ac oss

I company passed the senate Jan. 6, and
I received the approval of the Presiient
I on the 8th inst.
I immediately on the receipt of :.cws
j of the enactment of the law, the V. ited
I Globe Mines company ordered a si otdy
I of coke for sty p meat to Globe.
E. H. Cook, superintendent of the
I United Globe, has been advised a the
shipment of bridge timbers and ti 3 to
Geronimo, and that constructor, on
the Gila Valley, Globe and Nort ern
railroad would begin about Febr ary
1st or soon thereafter.
President Wm. Garland haswri.,en
that work will begin at Geronimo and
Globe simultaneously. At this i-r of
the line a force of men will be employ
ed to make a" cut 1300 feet long tn 1 37
I feet deep at
the highest elevat m,
across the summit two miles sorl). -ast
of town. Before construction ' work
begins on the reservation it v, i! be
necessary to negotiate with the In
dians, through Lieut. Rice, sc.ing
agent at San Carlos, but no jdjf3c.nl ty
is anticipated on that score. i ,
The intention is .to push the work
with all possible speed and tut t by
next November or December thi rail
road will have been completed into
After having encountered so many
obstacles and delays the news that the
railroad is actually to be built seems
almost too good to credit, but never
theless there is no reason to deal t the
authenticity of the report. The effect
upon Globe is expected to be almost
electrical. Work in the mines will be
increased, business will revive and im-
provements wUl be made in the town,
all of which will give employment 10
many more men and make money more
plentiful. It is safe to predict that
1898 will be the beat year in the history
of Globe district.

' I From the Globe Silver Belt.
We are informed by E. H. Cook, sup- j
erintendent of the United Globe, that
coke has been ordered by his company,
and the expectation is that the 150 ton
furnace will be blown in about Feb.
1, by which time It is thought coke
will have begun to arrive at Geronimo.
There is a week's aupply of coke on
hand at the smelter.
In anticipation of the resumption of
smelting the force has been consider
ably increased during the past two
weeks and work is beiag prosecuted in
all the mines which are expected to
produce ore. The company has ex
pended upwards of 300,000 the past
year in development work and the
various mines look weU and give prom
ise of a sufficient supply to keep the
smelter running without interruption.
The Hoosier shaft is down 500 feet, I
and the Grey shaft 230. A hoist is be

seem) for mere pursoees of show;
After being instructed in the arts of
civilization for a time they arereturned
to savagery, to become more unhappy
