It is an even wager that General
Miles will accept a surrender from the
Sioux by allowing them to keep their
arms ar he did with Gerordmo. It will
be a barren victory for the settlers of

meet on Monday next will be ohliged
to get along without Judge Kibbey.

Tills school trustees of Tucson have
appointed Arbor day for the schools
on Feb. 14th. Why not encourage
our school boys to beautify the school
grounds by planting trees and caring
for them. At a very little expense the
drains from the school house might
be made to do service as irrigating
channels for trees, instead of carrying
water to waste as is cw the case, and
in the abense of a fence the trees
might be protected by guards. Parents
who look back to their own school
days, fa a building surrounded by
beautiful trees and lawn cannot

The first paragraph of the above is
accepted as an official announcement
that he will not be a candidate for a
Wasuixotox. A lengthy corres
pondence between Gen. Miles and Gen.
Schofield regarding the CoL Fony the
case, was made public today. General
Schofield on Dec. 30th, telegraphed
congratulations to tbcSeventh Cavalry
GeneraKMiles in return asked if he
wished the message transmitted, in
view of the fact that Forsythe'a conduct
would be a matter of investigation,
stating at the same time that the tat
ters disposition of 400 soldiers and
four pieces of artillery was fatally de
fective and a large number of soldiers
were killed by the fire from the In
dians. Schofield thereupon 'clegra pli
ed to bold the message of congratu
lations and that the President re
quested an immediate investigation of
the charges and the relieving of any
officer responsible for onsoldierly con
duct. On Jan. 3d General Miles stat
ed that he hod taken such action as
he had been recommended to do and
that he had troops and scouts on
three sides of the Indians, half of
whom were anxious to surrender,
while the others were making a des
perate effort to keep out. General
Miles stated he had a great amount of
information going to show that a con
spiracy existed involving' all the tribes
in the Indian Territory, Silting Bull
would have been at tli head of it and
a general uprising would have taken
plaee Iii the spring. The move would
have been commenced in Nevada
where hj?host delusions originated.

Schofield' telegram and the Prei
stdent's orders detailed' a board of

situation is regarded as houleds tor
the Indians, jet it is believed thoy
have no intuntieu of surrendering. It
is predicted by some who are on guard
that there will be a battle Sunday or
Monday, when the hopelessness of
fighting against such odds will be
pointed out. The only explanation
given is that the Indians are crazy.
From the reports received at the- In
tenor Department the situation is be
lieved to be intense and people at the
agencies aro very much disturbed.

No Fight Yet But one Prob
Pixe RlDiJfc No one can tell what
under cover of darkness may impel
the Indians to undertake. That they

that they are now awaiting an oppor

field marched from three to six miles
nearer the hostile last night. The
disposition the Indians display to ac
cept the overtures of Gen Miles, in
dicate that they ose to surrender
and elain their arms or die in th-ir
defense. The coming in of Bed Cloud
is variously interpretei and his good
faith it much doubted.

Ernest Vance looked at ber a moment
and then turned his eyes to another point
