As for the troops and any danger
therefrom I never gave- it a second
thought; for it always did appear to
me an utter impossibilit j for either
lumbering cavalrymen or infantry
men to ever catch anything in the
ruiTtrtd mountains of Arizona. Of
course Apaches, as well as other peo
ple, sometimes get careless and are
surprised, but not very often is this
the case; and it is or was mostly
through treachery they were ever tak
en unawares in their camps. With this
feeling of contempt for the "catch
ing" ability of the troops, I inform
ed Cooley and Dodd that I should
forthwith notify the sleeping Indi
ans that they might save their lives
by flight. 'Good God don't do
that," said Cooley, "we are already
outlawed now and liable to be shot
at any moment." My reply to Mr.
C.'s excited harangue was to the ef
fect that the troops must first catch
before they could shoot and if they
can catch me in these mountains let
'em shoot and be d d to 'em. I
then proposed that all pull out. To
this Cooley objected on the grounds
that ho and Dodd were under parole,
having pledged their words to Cap
tain Barry not to escape. Captain
Barry's reasons for allowing his pris
oners to return to their camp,
putting the two whites on
their parole, wa9 to allay
any suspicions the Indians might
have so that his troops could make a
complete and successful massacre
the next morning, it being -too late
that evening to do the job. Mr.
Cooley seemed greatly exercised
over my proposition to inform the
Apaches of their danger, and en
treated me for God's sake not to do
anything until he and Dodd could
have another interview with the
Captain. It seems that both my
friends had also given their word
not to even hint of the intended
killing to the Apaches. They both
immediately proceeded to the mili
tary camp; this was between 2 and
3 o'clock in the night. After about
an hour both returned with the in
telligence that Captain Barry would
surely disobey his Colonel's orders
and would not murder the poor
devils on the following morning;
that Barry had not said this in so
many words but had distinctly con
veyed this impression to them.
At that time now twenty-seven
years ago, l was young lull ol tlie
spirit of adventure and it did really
seem to mo a matter absolutely far-
cicial for lumbering cavalrymen to
talk of catching any one, particular
ly in a mountainous country, and
who was at home at any time and
place amongst them.
The following morning August 2d
I awoke late, and seeing Captain
Barry and Cooley walking back and
forth along the brow of the mesa
upon which our camp was situated I
immediately felt that no massacre
would take place. Runners were
immediately sent out to call in all
Apaches in the near neighborhood
to have a "big peace talk" with Cap
tain Barry. In the afternoon a
grand pow-wow was had at which
Captain Barry explained to the
Apaches his orders from Colonel
This was certainly a great sur
prise to our Apache friends, aud the
one solitary eye of oar Chief, (ho
part and apparently unknown and
unnoticed by the Coyoteros; but
were always seen in the background.
on the outskirts of the assembled
council. At the conclusion of Cap
tain Barry's talk many of the
Apaches turned their e3es towards
the writer, particularly Huero, but
they were satisfied that I had had
no part in the treachery, and my in
dignation must have shown plainly
upon my face, for the Apache chiefs
came to me immediately and ex
pressed themselves as fully confident
of my honesty and sincerity. Es-
cah-pah, with that peculiar cynical
smile on his face and devilish glit
ter of his one eye, informed Captain
Barry that "had it not been by
treachery, he nor Colonel Green
could not have made much of
massacre; that possibly the shoe
might have been on the other foot,"
or words to that effect. That under
the circumstances, and as the Cap
tain proposed to bo just, he and his
people were willing to meet half
way. J. lie Uluel tlien proaueeu His
papers from Gen. James H. Carle-
ton. The Captain looked them over
carefully and was fully satisfied that
to kill these people was to commit a
great crimo. In this connection it
would bo well to state that at the
time Cooley, Dodd and the writer
joined Es-cah-pah at the Zuñi vil
lagos, ho had been to Santa Fe, Now
Mexico to see General Gottie, then
n command of the district of New
Mexico, for the express purpose of
ascertaining if the promise of a
reservation was to be carried out.
But General Gettio told Es-cah-pali
to go back that it was not in his
military district; that he must see
the district commander of Southern
Arizona; and it was on his return
from Santa Fe, we three joined the
Chief and his party at" the Pueblo
de Zuñi.
After the commandant of the
troop of horse had examined the
Chiefs papers, and had verified his
statements through us who were ac
quainted with the facts, he informed
the Indians that he would disobey
the orders of his superior officer on
humanitarian grounds; that in con
sideration therefor the principal
men of the tribe must go with the
three Americans to Camp McDowell
and see General Deven, who alone
had the right to make peace with
them; that if the General did so he
would give them papers which would
protect them in the future from
other scouting parties of soldiers.
To this proposition the Indians
agreed and seemed very glad to do
so. The following day, August 3d,
Captain Barry returned to Colonel
Green's camp, still at the confluence
of the east and west forks of the
White river, and reported to his su
perior what he had done on his trip
to the Apache camp on the Carizo.
Colonel Green became at once very
passionate at Captain Barry for dis
obeying orders in not killing all the
Indians as ordered, and immediately
relieved the Captain of his com
mand, confining, him to .the camp
Soon after Colonel Green selected
a site about three-quarters of a mile
further east upon the mesa, where" a
military post was established and
named "Camp Ord" in honor of the
department commander Gen. E. O.
C. Ord.
Camp Ord was considered stragot
ically situated, being located in the
heart of the Apacheria. This done
Colonel Green returned with his
command back to Fort Goodwin.
Arriving at Goodwin the Colonel at
once set about the preparation of a
series of "charges and specifica
tions" against Captain Barry, alleg
ing "disobedience of orders, the vio
lation of certain articles of war,"
i and the inevitable winding up, viz

he was a brave warrior as also was
his brother El Diablo and had a
massacre been attempted, although
taken at a disadvantage by treach
ery, under the guise of friendship,
he and his trusty braves certainly
would have "made their record" be
fore death.
At this "peace talk" were repre
sentatives from the Sierra Blanca
Apaches, the Final Apaches, and
perhaps others, but they were silent
"lookers on in Venice," taking no
a gentleman." This rigmarole of
charges, etc., etc., were in due time
sent to Gen. Thomas E. Deven, com
manding officer of the southern
military district of Arizona, with
headquarters at Camp McDowell.

Russi3 is a very wealthy nation,
has a vast amount of gold at her dis
posal, and she is an excellent friend
for the United States to have in case
of war with England. The st aunch
ness of her friendship was shown
during the period of the late war of
rebellion, when she stood firmly by
that portion of the country which
represented the Old Flag and the
traditions of American freedom
Without the moral support which
she then gave us, there were times
when even the loyalty of the na
tion mij,tit have become dishartenod,
and felt that the struggle was un
certain, But the so-called despotism of
Russia was with our struggling and
loyal armies, and never once through
that long period of strife, . in defeat
or in victory, did she prove faithless,
and today, while the press of Europe
was almost universally denouncing
the Venezuelan message of President
Cleveland, and declaring that the
Monroe doctrine was untenable and
worthy of condemnation, the Russi
an press came out warmly in its fav
or and cordially indorsed the senti
ment of "America for Americans.".
With a surplus in her treasury
which, according to the best informa
tion, is not less than ?1 ,000,000,000,
Russia's offer to stand by the treas
ury of the United States is not with
out value. In the international chess
game which is being played, it will
be a great thing for the United
States to have Russia as a friendly
power at our eidow. In times of
trial she has been a better friend to
us than ever John Bull, who is alC
ways on the alert for ascendancy.
Russia is not standing idle in the
world's march for advancement. She
is building the most extensive and the
most expensive railroad of the world,
and its completion means for the
Russian people new conditions and
enlarged commercial facilities, great
er comfort for her peoplo, the open
ing up of vast mineral wealth, and a
continent of rich farming lands for
her peasantry. There can be, under
existing conditions, nothing like
stagnation in Russian affairs, but
rather broad expansion and growth.
Says the Washington correspond
ent of the Chicago . Record in a re
cent letter to that journal:
"Russia's chief motive for her offer
of gold to the United States was
her desiro to give her great plans a
broader and more secure basis. It
was originally made months ago, un
conditionally, and in a peaceful,
friendly, spirit. She made it partly
with the purpose of freeing the
United States from England and
the European money-lenders, and
partly in order to place some of her
gold reserve-where it would do her
the most good in case of emergency.
"Although she does not seek war
with England, she is wise enough to
be prepared for it. Should war be
forced upon Russia her gold would
be in the United States, where it
could be used to pay for war mate
rial, provisions, ect., which she natur
ally would buy from the States.

The inquiry was cabled to' New
York and telephoned thence to Phil
adelphia. A reply was sent back by
telephone and cable and received in
London in twelve minutes. There
was no p re-arrangement or prepara

made phenomenal time.

A great sensation was coused by
the summary removal from office of
Postmaster-General Gochicea, Post
master Montiel of t he City of Mexico,
and all sorts of rumors are circulat- J
ing as to the cause. The press and 1x5
public have been loudly complainingy
of the service, and it was known in
in official circles that some changes
were coming. The former postmast
er in this city fled over a year ago,
leaving a shortage of some $60,000,
and he has never been apprehended.
The removal of the officials mention
ed was made on the order of Minis
ter of Communications, General
Tlie Merrill Murder.
Through General Wheaton a re
port has reached the War Depart
ment from Captain Godfrey, Sev
enth Cavalry, at San Carlos agency,
in which the Captain says he is sat
isfied that Captain Mayers, the In
dian agent there, has done all in his
power to determine whether or not
the murderers of the Merrill family
have been on the reservation since
the murder, and whether the crime
was committed by Indians. The
Captain reports that he is now con
vinced the renegade Massai is the
murderer. If he has been on the
reservation since the murder, the
Indians don't know it.
"What is the mystery of the won
derful healing power possessed by
Francis Schlatter? said Rev. Helen
Van Anderson, pastor of the Church
of Higher Life of Boston, to an au
dience that tested the seating and
standing capacity of Allen Hall yes
terday afternoon. The subject of
her sermon was "Schlatter, the Di
vine Healer, and something of the
Philosophy of Spiritual Healing."
The services included solos by Mr.
L. G. Parker and Miss Loring. The
speaker outlined the history of the
poor shoemaker and gave some de
tails of his methods of curing the
sick, instancing many cases. Con
tinuing her remarks she said:
'Is there any philosophic founda
tion upon which his power is based?
Is this man chosen for the work? If
there is a philosophy in it, cannot
others come into the power? I be
lieve there are answers to these
questions just as I know there are
questions that have appealed to the
brightest minds of our times.
Schlatter says that the power that is
in him is the spirit of the Father as
something that is of himself a part,
that dwells within him, that guides
and directs as well as impelís him.
On account of his wonderful faith
in and implicit obedience to the dic
tates of that spirit he has suffered
many privations, he has wandered
over desert wilds, . he has fasted,
literally abstained from food for
seventy-five days; he has been per
secuted, arrested as a vagrant, but
through it all he has maintained his
loyalty to his faith. He -has kept
himself, as it were, in a holy nitch
away from the world, that he might
flue nee of the spirit and so fit him
self to affect the consciousness of
those to whom he ministers.
"Thus he has inspired hope in the
hopeless. Their very hopelessness
has been like a door to their recep
tive faculties, and through the ema
nations from this man of sublime
faith in the Father, the potency of
that faith has entered the souls of
the sick and made them well.
and broken in body and mind,
through his hope and faith have
been, rejuvinated. It is possible, I
believe, for all of us in a greater or
lesser degree to exercise similar in
fluence, but before we are qualified
to receive and administer this spir
itual healing power we must prepare
ourselves by leading spiritual lives.
Such lives are possible for all human
beings, but they can only be attained
by fasting, not abstaining from food,
but giving up beliefs in appearances
and willingly sacrificing many of
those things that we have come to
regard as essential to our material
welfare and happiness."
The services were concluded by a
healing service, consisting of . a
prayer by the pastor and silent
prayer on the part of the audience.

Good Advice-
Plenty of Time.
Geo. Leonard who is "beating" his
way from San Francisco to Boston
on a wager os $5,000, arrived in New
York city, January 14, Leonard
must make a journey across the con
tinent in thirty days without any
expenditure. He must have $500 in
hand when he reaches Boston.
Leonard will receive half of a $5,000
wager if he makes the trip in thirty
days. He has only been nineteen
days on his journey and has already
earned $162. .
Winslow as at present situated is
wholly dependent on the railroad.
Put a thrifty farming community
surrounding it of 400 or 500 and she
would be, in a measure, independent
of the road. Eastern railroad mag
nates and European bond "holders,
care no more for the interests of the
residents of our town, than they do
for the dirt under their feet.' They
would see all business stopped,- and
our property holders forced to get
up and leave their possessions, if in
doing so either could gain a tempo
rary advantage. Let us get togeth
er and act as one man, to induce
capital to come into the country, de
velop our water supply, reclaim
land, and place ourselves on an in
dependent and self-sustaining basis.
It strikes the Mail that any other
course is simply suicidal. Mail.
The above is the very soundest
sort of advice, and the sooner Wins
low peoplo heed it the better for
them. No city . in the world was
ever built upon "imports" alone.
