Tmkuh appoara to bo a crowd of fclackmailera behind tho Indians on a San Carlos reservation inciting um to opposo tho construction of fh Gila Vnlloy Globo and North ern railroad which has now reach Kl the limits of tho reservation and Mmt stop if terms cannot bo mado Tffith tho Indians. Tho Indians of fbmsolvos would novor havo sot p tho opposition they havo unless fecitcd to it by thoso who aro thorn and who belong to an dement that has boon bohind theso sft me Indians in days gono by inciting them to dcods of murder and ylnndor that an opportunity might fte offered contractors and othors io got in thoir work, an that did not hesitato to yrofit by tho death and torturo of fte white settlors. Tho days aro jfone by whon that sort of thing ill bo complacontly submitted to fcy tho Territory. Tho day of development and settlement is nt kand and tho instigators of crimo ttd thoso who would hold back kack tho march of progress for tho pnrposo of gathering a fow paltry iollurs into thoir pockets, must iake a back scat in all portions of Hie Territory Herald. James Stevens, of San Carlos, -was in ths Guardian ofilco yesterday and informs us that tho articles taken from the Silver Belt and fhenix Herald, and which appears al8cwhcro in our columns to-day a grgss oxagorations. IIo says that thero havo been no signal fires xJthongh somo of tho Indians havo .keen out hunting tho mescal plant and probably their camp fires havo fcecn seen. Thoro havo been no and no ovidenccs of a gathering storm. Old is a back number without influence among them oven if ho tried to exert, any. and four oiher Indians, it is truo, havo asked for an interview with tho "Great Tathcr at Washington," but that is idl thero is in tho wholo matter. Jfr. Stovens speaks tho Apacho language readily and cortainly is rorthy of confidence and bohof. A resolution, passed without a dissenting voice, under a pension of tho rules, by tho Connecticut Senate, calls "upon all Amoricans without regard to party to join ua in denouncing tho unpa triotic and inaction of tho Democratic Administration, "flio wording of tho resolution is faulty. No genuino Democratic Administration is unpatriotic or Whatever its pretensions, whatever tho part that Arri'cd it to power, tho moment au Administration is unpatriotic it is not Demo cratic. Tho Democratic party may Lave to talco tho responsibility for putting such an Administration in flower, and may suffer tho penalty; but tho Administration itsolf has ro part nor lot in truo Democracy. Tho test is infallible. ' The Gila Valley is now blossom ing in all tho richness of in Arizona. Tho sweet aroma of tho alfalfa Jidda, tho music of tho sickle, tho hum of tho myriads of bees, tho low of tho festive calf, tho gurgle of tho irrigating canals and tho good honsowilo's pot of f'groens" simmering on tho stovo, ell' remind us that only a big bowl cf "sasfras" tea is needed to mako our measure of human joy "slosh oloan over" on all sides. Senator Palmer, of Illinois, was elected as a freo coinage Democrat did 101 members of tho lcgfslaturo vvjioso votes elected him in 1891 declared unanimously at that session in favor of freo coinage of silver nt a ratio of 10 to 1, and thoir Senators and Con gressmen accoidingly. Tho Chicago Democrats havo now declared i for freo coinage and adopted rcso Solutions repudiating Palmer and Ibveland on tho financial question i traitors to tho Interests of tho ,puopk Let tho good work go on. , Senator John II.

Tho Yico President has long been classed in "Washington as an anti-Administration man. His record as a grcenbackcr makes him incline naturally to free silver. Tho Yico President's boom as wcllassilvor will be on trial tho Juno Convention. Holoinonvllle Joo Reaves is fitting up tho Gila Hotel in fiast class order to its early opening. At tho rcsidonco of Henry Dial near Solomonvillo, on last Sunday ovening thero was a happy occurrence on tho occasion of tho marri. ago of Mr. Dial's youngest daughter Alico, to Mr. "Win. Richards. Tho affair was very quiet, thero being presont but a small number of relatives and immediato friends. Tho coromonoy which bound tho twain to gather was porformod by Rev. D. Roberts of Safford. Immediately after supper tho happy couple repaired to tho homo which tho groom had prepared across tho river from Saffoul, and their housekeeping begun. Tho Guardian joinos tho many frionds of Mr. and Mrs. luchards in wishing them a long and joyous futuro on tho wido sea of matrimony upon which they have embarked.

Soveral hundred mon, many of them with largo families havo been thrown out of employment and much distress must follow. Rumors say that tho management of tho company had somo misunderstanding with tho Arizona Coppor Co. in regard to transportation rates on tho narrow gauge railroad. Joso Gonzales is taking tho school census of tho Solomonvillo school district. Tho matter of building a railroad i'rom Morenci down Eaglo Crcok to tho Gila River and thonco down tho Gila to Solomonvillo to connect with tho Valley railroad is again being agitated- Tho pro posed route is perfectly fcasiblo and tho Detroit Copper Company has given tho subject serious consideration, bolioving that such a road would bo a pavinc investment. It would bo of tho greatest importance to tho valloy, would furnish a market for our produco, easy to reach, would cheapen the cost of living at tho minihg camps and greatly lessen tho cost of producing metal from all tho ores. Almost n Hum Up (t Fort Thomas, Tho roport reached us yesterday that on Wednesday last Aloxandor Th-os., of Thomas camo near thoir handsome storo consumed by fire. It seems that somo cow boys were camped in tho corral and ono of them carelessly dropped a lighted cigarrotto on somo beddinc which took firo. Tho flames quickly spread to tho tim bers which support tnoir largo wator tank. Soveral holes wore shot into tho tank to allow tho wator to run onto tho Jlamo3 which wero by this timo boginning to burn tho roof of tho storo, but tho tank was dry, and tho . workers were compelled to draw wator from tho well, with which thoy finally succeoded in extinguishing tho flames.

CONSCIOUS TO THE LAST MENT. After mi Illncaa of Ten I)ay Silent Suffering He Dion With the (ho Setting of the Stin. As tho sun sank bohind tho mountains of the west last Sunday ovening, May 5th, Dr. M. S. Coff-man, of Solomonvillo, closed his eyes in that solemn and endless slumber death. His illness was of ton days duration, and on Sunday ovening tho anxiou3 friends who assembled around his knew by tho fluttering pulso and heart, that tho life, just in its fullest bloom of manhood, must soon pass to that "Bourn from whence no traveler o'er returnoth." His was a brilliant future, after years of endless study and labor in tho lino ot his profession. Truly it is said that "life is uncertain," and this fact was dconly impressed upon tho hearts of thoso, who, with tearful oyes watched at his bedside whon his soul passed to that higher tribunal. His anguish, when fully aware that life would soon close, must havo been deeper than words can portray. Yet never a sound escaped his lips; with an iron will he suffered for ten long days, having tho full faculty of reason. Everything was dono by his friends allay his sufferings, but their labors, so freely given, were vain. Drs. Porter, Hoeffcr, Goodfcllow, Pcaso and Dudley wero in attendance at different times. Por 48 hours his lifo was kept his body by means of drug, injections, and as tho last was about bo administered he raised his hand, saying: "Don't give me any more, it is of no use." For half an hour ho lay, supported on one sido by his brother Jcsso, and on the othor by frionds, and just as tho shadow of tho setting sun flitted through tho room ho gavo a few gasps, a convulsivo movement of tho body, and with arms outstretched as if reaching for somo hidden support tho band of lifo was snapped and Dr. Coffman was no more. Too much praiso cannot bo given to members of tho family of Mr. I. E. Solomon, who from tho timo of his first illness wero most constant in thoir attentions. Mrs. Prank Nceso and Mrs. Judgo Hyatt also rendered thoir best services in his behalf. Messrs. Chas. P. Solomon and H. B. Pox wero constantly by his side, doing all in their power to make Ins last davs on earth as comfortable as possible On Monday afternoon at tho hour of two o'clock tho funeral services took place. Row D. Roberts, of Safford, conducted tho ceremonies which wero short and impressive Tho pall-bearers of tho wreath covered casket and its remains wero Judgo Goodwin, Harry B. Pox, Charles Solomon, Wiley E. Jones, Manuel Leon and G. A. Conklin. After tho casket had been deposited in its last resting placo tho services concluded with a brief prayer. Dr. Coffman had resided at but a littlo over a year and although of a rather quiet and retiring disposition ho had mado a host of friends, who, with his rela tives mourn his untimely death. Pcaeo to his ashes. Slowly o'er tho distant mountains, sinks tho glowing sun to rest, Gilding with its lingering splendor tho horizon of tho west, And tho twilight softly falling over forest, fiold and hill, Brings tho hour of peace and comfort, bidding all tho world bo still Scareoly had tho lingoring shadows from tho mountain passed from sight Whon a soul from earth to heaven Gcntlo winged its silent flight; Upward to tho gates of heaven, and norchanco it enters thero, Where no sorrows dim the portals of that wondrous land so fair, Tho "Gold Dollar" saloon at BuJTalo, N- Y., has a floor laid with 20 gold pieces and a bar studded with 850 gold pieces.
