CHAPTER II. Tho threo mountain ranges men tioned in the foregoing chapter, af forded a sccr.ro retreat for the Apaches, and practically almost an insurmountable barrier against any successful pursuit of them by tho military. During tho earlier part of tho year 18G1- Apacho depredations were almost of daily occurrence, aud had reached that stage at which the commanding officer of tho Southern district detcraiiiod to chastize tho red devils and try and put a stop to their develtry. General Deven hav ing obtained reliablo information that a great many Indian outrages then being committed in southern Arizona, were not, as usually sup posed, perpetrated by the Chirica hua Apaches under old Cochise, but that a large number were committed by tho tribes mentioned in chapter one. Early in June, 1809, Major Green, the commandant at Camp Goodwin, received orders from headquarters at Camp McDowell, to take all his available force and with himself at its head, to at once put into execu tion a vigorous campaign against all Apaches ranging over the country lying north of tho Gila. Accord ingly, Colonel Green, at tho head of four troops of cavalryj and a par ty of "tame Apaches" under Chief Manuel, in pursuance of his orders, began his perilous march into the wilds of the unknown mountains to tho northward, After many days of hard marching, clamlxring and climbing over almost inaccessible mountains, tho command finally en camped July 27, 18G9, near tho junc tion of two mountain streams, now known as tho East and West forks of White river, about one-fourth of a mile west of tho present site of Fort Apacho. At various times and places along tho line of march, hos tiles were frequently met with, who were routed by tho troops, and their corn-fields destroj-ed. In these nu merous encounters some few Apaches were killed and others more or less wounded. Tho reader will pardon another short digression, as it is necessary to a clear comprehension of the narra tion. On the 12lh day of July, 1?G9, C. E. Cooley, Ileary Wood Dodd and the writer of these reminiscences, accompanied by a small party of Coyotero Apaches under Chief Es-coh-pah (accent on tho middle sylla ble) and a Mexican cautivo named Miguel, the chiefs interpreter, wo pulled out of the Zuni tillages, with tho ostensible purpose in view of hunting a supposed fabulously rich placer gold mine, known to many in New .Nexico as the "Doe. Thorn story." Be foro leaving tho Pueblo do Zuni, .situated in New Mexico, about twenty miles east of tho íxmíi dary lino ljctweou that territory and Arizona, Captain Cressy, of the 3d U. S. cavalry, stationed at Fort Win gate, with a detachment of his troops as escort for himself and tho post intsrpreter, came over to tho villages to have a conference with us before wo were permitted to start upon our wild-goose chase into the unknown wilds of tho Apacheria. Tho truthful writer should never sacrifice the truth of fact and inci dent to the mere eleganco of 'diction or a glittering or pleasing romance; however much he may desire, by al lowing his imagination to run wild into the realms of tho picturesque; but on the contrary he should stick to plain facts, for it is well known that tho simple "truth Í3 stranger than fiction." Therefore, I will here record the humiliating fact, that Captain Cressy's visit to us did not partako so much of a social nature as one could have wished, but his real object was for the ex press purpose of inspecting our out fits, to see that "we ruu3," instead of being gold Luuters, were not in re ality engaged in illicit traffic with the hostile. Apaches. Of our three selves, each Lad his own pet object itt tho consummation of this re markable . expedition, viz: Cooley was for seeking tho Doc. Thome placers; Dodd, (peaco to his ashes), went along to get away from his old friend and implacublo enemy, John Barleycorn; and the writer, at that time, full of adventure and romantic nonsense, had for his objects solely explorations and adventure. In tho year 1869, the whole of that immense area, now designated on tho maps as Apacho county, includ ing also a part of Yavapai, Graham and Gila counties, comprising, a3 t diil, many thousand square miles, was then uninhabited by a single white man or Mexican an unex plored tierra incognito and over the whole roamed the fiendish Apache, the undisputed monarch of- all. "Without incident or mishap do serving of particular notice, suffice to Ea' wo safely arrived at t he ran cheria of the. Coyoteros, situated on Carizo creek, late in the afternoon of July 18, 18G9. Here wo remained encamped with the Apaches several days, recuperating ourselves and animals, preparatory to the final start; first to find "Sombrero butte;" second, to find the "Sierra Pintados;" and third, to find the "stone corral" all of which were the designated landmarks that were to unoaringly guide us to the more than El Do radoto tho Doc. Thome gold plac ers the goal of our phantasmal ex pedition. " con-tinted A FIII3I STAND. Kxtracls From President Cleveland's Message of the 17th. "The course to be" pursued by this Government, in view of tho pre sent condition, does not appear to ad mit of serious doubt.' Having labor ed faithfully for many years to in duce Great Briton to submit this disputo to irupartial-arbitration and having leen finally apprised of her refusal tó do so, nothing remains but to accept tho situation, to recognize its plain requirements, and to deal with it accordingly. "I suggest that Congress make adequate appropriation for the ex penses of a commissson to be ap pointed by tho Executive, who shall make the necessary investigation aud report upon tho matter with the least possible delay. When such re port is made and accepted it will, ia my opinion, be the duty of the United States to resist by every means in its lower as a willful aggression upon its rights and interests the appropria tion by Great Britain of anylandsor the exercise of governmental juris diction over any territory which, after investigation, wo have determined of right belong to Venezuela. "I n making t hese recommend at ions, I am fully alive to tho responsibility incured and fully realize all con sequences that may follow. I am nevertheless firm in my conviction that while it is a grevious thing to contemplate tho two great English speaking people of tho world as be ing otherwiso than friendly compet itors in the onward march of civil ization and strenuous and worthy rivals in ajl tho arts of peace, there 3 no calamity which a groat nation can invite which equals that which follows supine submission to WTong and injustice and tho consequent loss of national self-respect and honor be neath which is shielded and defended the peoples safety and greatness." The gigantic specimen of tho Arc tic rhinosceros that was lately dis covered frozen up in tho icelergthat stranded at tho Lena Delta was seven feet taller than tho largest variety of tho rhinoceros of to-day, and was armed with two nose horns, the short - est of which was three feet and two inches in length. The animal doubt less belonged to the antediluvian species of rhinoceri, and his immense size gives some idea of tho enormous and terrible beasts which ic1 abited this planet in tho days when tho earth was j-oung. Tho creature's lxxly was entirely covered with very long, thick hair, which proves the Arctic regions to have leen its nat ural habitat. Mining Industry.

By tho Globe Silver Belt particu lars are now at hand respecting the Indian fight on tho Cibicu before touched upon in lato press dispatch es. It appears that tho "cowlxiys" referred to constituted a sheriiTs posse, headed by Deputy Sheriff E. L. Bcnbrook, ono of tho nerviest oilicers in tho employ of SheriiT Thompson of Gila county. Tho re gion referred to lies in tho north east f-ri nnrt of Gila count-, aud well within the Apache reservation. At the Octolxr (1895) term of the district court of Gila county, two Indians, Tonto C 21 and Tonto O 8, were indicted for burglary committed at the Vosburg rauch in the vicinity of Pleasant Valley. The warrant for tho arrest of the Indians wanted was delivered to Deputy Benbrook, who left Globe, December 1, for Cibicu to mako tho arrest. Arriving at Pleasant Valley ho was joined by Bill Voris, Frank Ketchersides and Huso Kyle. The party left the Gentry ranch, threo miles above Ellison's on Thursday morning De cember 5, and arrived at Cooley's camp (Cooley being head chief of tho band of Indians) an Cibicu creek, thirty miles distant, about sundown. Nan-tan-go-tayz, the chief then in authority, a brother of Chief Cooley, upon lieing informed through au in terpreter what tho officers wanted, consented to tho arrest of the two Indians. Tonto C 24 was identified and placed under arrest and the oilicers had started to ride away with their ' prisoner when Ketcher side recognized Tonto O 8, among the forty or fifty Indians in the camp. At this juncture Loco Jim hailed tho officers and asked what they wanted with the two Indians, and then Captain Jack, tho interpreter, rode up and said they could not take the Indians' away. Whilo they were parleying the other Indians legan to gather in around the officers and Nan-tau-go-ta3-z, the chief, came up close to Kerchcrside's horse aud made a grab for tho bridle rein, but missed it, as tho horse jerked his head away. The chief then went up to Voris and with both hands grasp the Winchest er hung.on.tho side of the saddle, and attempted to draw tho gun from j its holster. Voris thereupon caught the Indi an's wrist with both hands and broke tho hold of one hand on the gun, when the Indian, retaining his hold on tho gun with ouo hand, grasp tho bridle rein of Voris' horse with tho other. Just then Tonto C 24, one of the Indians whom the posse went to arrest, fired a shot from a distance of about twenty yards, and Voris, seeing that tho situation was desperate and tho chief was getting tho better of him, drew his sixshoot er and fired at his adversar-. Tho Indian threw his head back and avoided tho bullet, whereupon Voris placed tho pistol close to the Indi an's breast and fired agein. Nan-tan-go-tayz fell forward on his face without uttering a word. About twenty-five Iudiaus standing on the side 'of a hill, some sixty j-ards away, fired "-volley at the oilicers, which passeu óixr their heads, and the lat ter returned the fire from their pistols. Tho officers put spurs to their horses and a race for life lxgau, tho Iudiaus who were mounted and arm ed giving chase. After a hard run of half a milo tho trail made an abrupt turn and the Indians in the lead by a fiauk movement got ahead of the officers, who, seoiug they were cut off, took to the cedar brake to the right of tho trail aud up the steep sido of tho mountain. Here tho posso got scattered; Voris was in the lead, and, dusk having fallen, ho regained the trail, forged ahead alono and reached Ellison's ranch alxMit 1:30 o'clock on Friday morn ing. Benbrook and Kyle soon cama together again in tho timber. Ben brook's pony was winded, and going up the mountain, fell and caught the rider's right kueo under the saddle, causing him a painful injury. Having returned to tho trail, they were ied off by tho Itidi : eo more to take to ans . the timber, and were joined by Ketcherside. Voris, when ho reached a narrow defile near Canyon crock, twenty miles from Cibicu, saw a signal-fire a short distance from tho trail, and when Benbrook, Ketcherside and Kyle passed, tho embers of tho Are were plainly to bo seen. The Indi ans who had got ahead of them on the trail had probably made tho fire to signal John Dazin's band of In dians, and had gone on to tho main crossing, of Cañón creek, with tho intention of ambushing the officers. Suspecting this, Voris left the main trail and crossed Cañón creek lower down, and his companions under tho guidance of Ketcherside, took an old trail that crossed the creek high er up, and arrived at Ellison's ranch at 3 o'clock Friday moraing. When tho fight commenced at Ci bicu the officers wero compelled to abandon their pack mule which was carrying their blankets, sixty rounds of amunition, provisions and camp utensils. That auy of tho men escaped with their lives seems provi dential, and can bo accounted for only by tho approach of nightfall which lent thorn its kindly protection. Tho officers when they realized the futility of attempting to take the two Indians tried to get away peaceably, intending to go to Fort Apacho and ask tho military for as sistance, but the Indians, bent on mischief, provoked tho fight. The Indians wero tho aggressors and the officers when attacked were- in the discharge of their duty. The apathy and apparent unwill ingness of the military at Apache, on former occasions, to assist civil officers in tho apprehension of In dian malefactors is sufficient excuse for Deputy Benbrook not going first to the post to request a military escort to aid and protect him in the discharge of his duty. It w-as in August, 1S90, that Sheriff J. H. Thompson went to Fort Apache to secure the arrest of Guadalupe and an other Indian who murdered young Baker in the Sierra Anclia. Colonel Hunt, then in command at Apache, made no effort to arrest the Indians fer whom the sheriff had warrants, further than that after two or three days' delay two scouts went out, as alleged, to get Guadalupe, but returned without him. A few days after Guadalupe came in and on the insistence of Sheriff Thomp son was placed in the guard house. The sheriff then requested an escort to San Carlos, which Colonel Hunt refused him, and after remaining about ten days at Apache the sheriff took Guadalupe from the guard house at 3 o'clock in the morning and by a forced ride of ninety miles reached San Carlos . ia safety with his prisoners. The White Mountain Apaches, liv ing on Cibicu creek, are "the most warlike and trecherous Indians on the reservation. While ostensibly under the surveillance of the com manding officer at Port Apache, practically they are under no re straint whatever. They continue in their prestiño savagery, enioyingsf'a largest liberty, and retaining tl hatred of tho whites. They killV tie and loot ranches when opp nity offers, and are not averse taking human life. These Indians, living forty-six miles from Fort Apache, cannot bo kept in subjection. They roam -at pleasure, and may be off the reserva tion for weeks without the knowl edge of the commanding officer at Apache. They are a continual men aeo to the peace of eastern Arizona and it is high time that tho govern ment removed them to the Indian Territory, or elsewhere, where they could bo kept under strict surveil lance.
