ST. JOHNS, APACHE COUNTY, ARIZONA TERRITORYTHURSDAT, JUNE 18, 1885. NUMBER XXIII. MORE MORtvIONS. -Another consignment of Mor mon converts arrived Tuesday. They were brought down from Og den on a special, consis$ing of five coaches and a baggage car. They were met at the depot and hugged by the relatives who had preceded them. A Tribune rep resentative also met them, but no hugging ensued from the meeting. There were about 200 of them, mostly subjects of the Queen, who ought to be thankful that they are inUtah instead of Merrie Eng land. They are of about the same average quality as those who have preceded them, and will make good material for a Tabernacle congregation. Many incidents occurred that "were rather amusing to a casual spectator. For instance, Sullivan, the Cliff House representative, was wandering around among them looking for relatives, A little tow headed Johnny Bull one of a brood of seven attracted his at tention, and in a fit of generositj he pulled forth his last nickle and gave it to the child. The seven youngsters immediately swarmed around him, shouting at the top of their voices : "Here's grandfather." They clung to his coat tails, grab- j bed his cane, and made sundry dives at his watch chain, while a crowd gathered around and eng joyed the spectacle. When the Tribune man left, Sullivan was still trying to convince them he was not their grandparent. "Brother Cannon is in prison now," sorrowfully remarked a brother to one of the emigrants. "Well, if had two wives he ought to be in prison," was the emphatic response. That emi grant needs counsel, and he will probably get it. The most of the emigrants were taken to the tithing yard where they spent the night. One hun dred will be sent south and the rest will be utilized as building material for the center Stake. THE "THIEVING THIRTEENTH." It is said that the grand Jury in session at the present term of the District Court, will, before its ad journment, investigate certain charges of official corruption against several members of the last Legislature, and endeavor to ascertain which members received the benefit of $1,300 levied as tri bute on the citizens of Pxescott for permitting the Capitol to re main here. The parties who sub scribed to the fund are all known as is also the names of the parties who represented that it was abso lutely necessary to pay it to pre vent the Capitol being located elsewhere- The open and notorious bribery used both in favor and against the attempted creation of the proposed County of Sierra Bonita, will it is also said, be in vestigated, while certain members of the legislative corps who re ceived a pecuniary consideration for throwing their vote and in fluence in favor of the drainage of mines bill are in great jeopardy of being called on to offer legal ex planation of their conduct in the premises. Should the grand jury really embark in an attempt to fur nish a salutary example for future legislatures, by punishing the rot tenness of the last, the result will be a sensation that will exceed in interest any event that has taken place in Arizona for many a day. The presence of Dr. Ainsworlh, the President of the Council; A. E. Fay, its Secretary ; Morris Gold water, ex-Chief Clerk of the house, his assistant, Harry Carpenter, and many prominent lobbyistSj at present in Prescott, renders the work of the grand jury in the premises more easy than at first appears. Prescott Miner. A FEW POINTS ON MORMONISM. Pioche Record : Bishop Lee says that the sacred institution of po lygamy will survive the Govern ment of the United States. Apro pos of this sacred institution, I wish to state that in 1883 I had a revelation that the polygamous craft, with its President, Apostles and High Counselors, would sink into the deep water of oblivion in the year of our Lord 1888. A little over two rears of the specified time has passed, but in the three to come the prophecy will surely be fulfilled and I want the Bishop and his counselors to make a note of the fact, as my reputation as a revela tor is at stake. Portland Oregonian : The Mor mon heresy finds its best recruting ground in densely ignorant coun tries in the old world and in por tions of the South. The Mormon missionaries have won astonishing success among the "white trash" of the South. In Tennessee the Leg islature passed at its last session a bill prohibiting the preaching of polygamy in the State. Three Mor mon elders were arrested a short time ago for breaking this statue, and there is a prospect of a hard fight in the courts. To make it a misdemeanor to "advocate" any doctrine is not strictly in the line of our legislation, and the consti tutionality of the act will be stoutly disputed. Butte Inter-Mountain : The Mor mon church priests in Utah are now taking more interest in the sanitary condition and manage ment of its penitentiary than ever before. The3r charge that the old prisoners are in the habit of prac ticing all kinds of immorality, and have a regular organized society for hazing new convicts by tossing them up in blankets, making thom put on the gloves, etc. It is simple blasphemy thus to saddle indigni ties on the polygamous martyrs. But pretty soon, under the benefi cent rulings of Judge Zanc, the Mormon prisoners will be in the majority, the tortures will be re versed, and the old convicts will then be hazed on the Mountain Meadows plan, unless the warden shall interfere. San Francisco Chronicle: A prominent Mormon of Salt Lake named Aurclfus Miner, after five months of hiding from the officers of the law, returned to his home recently and was promptly arrested. He declared that he had grown tired of roaming about the East and traveling on what the Saints call "the Underground," and contem plated giving himself up when the Sheriff saved him the trouble. The seriousness of his present position is beginning to come home to the polygamist. He is forced to sup port several wives and their chil dren while he has not even the sat isfaction of living with a single one of them or of devoting himself to his usual business. If he comes home and risks arrest, conviction follows his prosecution as surely as night follows day, and he finds himself fined and imprisoned for six months or a vear. No wonder the pent up feelings of Mormondom found vent in the recent pathetic appeal. It differed strangely from their previous defiant utterances, and is a fair indication of the col lapse of a power which depended largelv for its success on ignorance and isolation. Great Falls Tribune ; . The cour age displayed by the Salt Lake Tribune in its unrelenting war against the Mormons is commend able. Day after day for years it has poured grape, cannister and chain-shot against the Mormon bulwarks and is now about to be rewarded by seeing the enemv hoist the white flag. The Tribune's fight has been a faithful one. The polygamists must go ! INDIGNATION MEETING. At a special meeting of the So ciety of Arizona pioneers, held at their Hall in Tucson, June 3d, the following resolutions were adopted : Whereas, Disastrous troubles have again fallen upon the Terri tory by reason of the recent out break of the Apache Indians, who have left the White Mountain reservation and are making their way across the line into the repub lic of Mexico, leaving the trail be hind tliem strewn with the vic tims of murder and rapine, to say nothing of the evidence of des truction of property, and Whereas, The Military station ed in the Territory have been pow erless to prevent the terrible out rages committed by these Indians, and to afford the people the pro tection that under the law and in accordance with the principles of justic and humanity, they are entitled; therefore Be it resolved by the Society of Arizona Pioneers, that the citi zens of the Territory be requested to meet in general mass meetings at an early day, to deliberate upon the questions involved in the cri sis, and to take such steps as in the judgment of the people will be calculated to furnish the general government with a clear and truth ful statement of our unfortunate condition, to the end, that the gov ernment may consider our dilemma and adopt such a course as will eng sure us speedy and adequate re lief from our sufferings. Resolved, That- the citizens of all the counties in the" -Territory be and they are hereby invited to take action in the premises. Resolved, That it is the sense of the Society of Arizona Pioneers that all hostile Indians should be removed from the Territory at the earliest practical opportunity. And at an adjourned meeting thereof held the following evening the following additional resolu tions were adopted : Whereas, We are again visited with the periodical massacre of our citizens and their families by the savage Apaches, our property des troyed and our progress retarded. Now therefore be it Resolved, That we demand of the Government that protection which we are guaranteed by the Constitution of. the United States the protection that we have been repeatedly promised and the prom ises as often broken. Resolved, That a member of this Society be sent to Washington at the earliest opportunity, to pre-, sent to the President the true sit uation of Indian affairs in this Territory, and to convey our appeal to the powers that be, for relief from the curse that has been al lowed to rest upon us so long by previous administrations Resolved, That the President and Secretary be instructed to notify and request the members of this Society residing in the several counties of the Tcrritoiy to use their best endeavors to call the people of their respective locali ties together in mass meeting, to the end, that united action may be taken on the question of Indian outrages in this Territory, and that a free expression of the peo ple may be had, and that the sev eral members bo notified of the action of the Society' relative thereto. Resolved, That the President be requested to cause circulars to be printed and sent to members of the Society, citizens and press of the territory, requesting their co operation in the subject matter of the foregoing resolutions. The Chiricahua Apaches must be removed from Arizona or kiiled. The Latter method is the cheapest and best method of getting rid of them.

The Land Grant of this Company, in alternate sections extends entirely across the Territories of New Mexico and Arizona, between the 34th and 36th degrees of north latitude. It is 650 miles long and 80 miles wide and includes some of the best grazing lands of both Territories. In the valleys are many desirable tracts of agricultural land, sus ceptible of irrigation. A sufficiency of water has been found wherever cattle and sheep have been grazed, and large herds have been grazed in the country ever since the coming of the Mexicans. Wells have been sunk and good water has been obtained. A stream of iunning water, the San Jose, rises near the summit of the Sierre Madre, and runs 75 miles eastward to the Rio Puerco, and the compa ny's road follows the whole length of its valley. There are numerous fine valleys opening into the valley of the San Jose, flanked bv grassy and woo ded hills, upon which there is an open growth of small cedar and pinon. There is an et?nsive belt of good pine timber on the mountains, near the railroad, and good springs are found on both slopes oftheSierrc Madre. There is a large coal field west of Fort Wingate which has been fully ex plored, and which will afford labor fora large pop ulation, there are also coal deposits op the eastern slope of the Sierra Madre. Many varieties of buil ding stone are found in great abundance along the line of the road. In Arizona the grazing areas are supplied wtih good water, and the "United States Surveyors, who made the official surveys of the country, say they are as good, if not better, than those of Wyoming and Montana. The Navajo Indians grow corn without irrigation, in the valrcys of the Puerco of the West, on the Company's lands, and in the val ley of the Little Colorado, also on the line of the road, good crops of corn, sorghum, oats, barley, and garden vegetables are grown by irrigation, the finest of potatoes, oats, wheat, barley and gar den vegetables of large size and fine quality have been successfully grown without irrigation on WATCHES AT GREATLY REDUCED PRICES, LIST OF WALTHAM AND ELGIN WATCHES IN 3-oz SILVER CASES -NAMED: STERLING, 7 Tewcls, S15.00.

On these mountains there is an extensive timber belt, diversified by beautiful valleys and parks, with good water and wonderful canons, throuhg which the road passes. In fact, the whole of the country traversed by the road is very picturesque and beautiful, and many towns arc tbeing built along its route, The Valley of the Rio Grande, at Albuquerqe is 5,000 feet above the sea, and jthc passes of the Sierra Madre and the San Francisco mountains, in Arizona, have elevations of 7,300, witha depres sion at Winslow, on the Little Colorado, where the altitude is 5,000 feet ; the climate is mild and saiubrous. Cattle and sheep graze throughout the year and do not need to be sheltered or grain fed during the winter. The nights are cool during the summer. The Company is now prepared to make sales of its grazing lands in quantities of 50,000 acres" or more, at prices ranging from one dollar (or even less for larger quantities,) to one dollar and a half an acre, upon payment of one-fourth the purchase value at date of contract of sale, the remainder in payments as may be agreed upon, bearing six per cent interest ; and irrigable agri cultural lands in tracts of forty acres or more. The belt of the Atlantic & Pacific Railroad Land Grant includes the only available grazing land in the country south of the Missouri River that can be purchased in large "areas; and the section of country through whieh this road passes will become the best beef producing region of the United States. Maps of the Land Grant will be forwarded on application and properly acredited persons desire ing to inspect grazing lands, with a view to pur chase and cxtablish stock ranches, will be gvicn facilities for that purpose.
