Writing of the reception of General
Crook at Deming, the Headlight says:
"The General left on the Santa Fe train
to take command of the Department of
the Platte. It was a noticeable fact that
the General was not talked to death by
admiring friends while in town. He
looked lonely and it was no difficult mat

truth when he said that he was glad to
get out of this country, and he might
have added that the people were glad to
see him go and would have parted with
him without a pang of regret if he had
gone soveral months ago.

The Holman committee which re
cently visited Arizona, has been inter,
viewing "Navajo Sam," who was born in
New York City. He gave the committee
some interesting information regarding'
the Navajo Indians. The following ex
tract trom the interview is trom a!
Washington telegram in the New York
Mail and Evoress:
"They can do anything that you or I
can do. They are good silversmiths and
blacksmiths, shoemakers and farmers.
They want to be citizens of the United
States. They pay taxes to Arizona in
horses and blankets. The Moqui tribe
of Indian people claim to be rich. They
are big cowards, but terrible workers;
they have a number of thousand of sheep
and some goats; they have nnt got any
running streams. The agent is in with
the contractors. They are peaceable
and very industrious, and all they need
is education to make them the best citi
zens. The children are employed in
watching sheep and goats. The men
only own their own ponies. The women
oun the houses. If a woman's husband
dies she goes home to' her husband's
brother, if he is living. They have no
war-like dances, but have corn-d.mces
and ram-dances. They are not a nation
to take sculps.1'
Q. Wefcil portion of the Navajos are
on their reservation?
A. About 14,000 on, and about 14,
000 off their reservation.
Q. Aren't they having trouble with
Arizona by getting off their reservation?
A. They charge them taxes, and if
they get a good range they steal it from
them; and one thing they want is a
right to buy supplies. You take a flock
of sheep and run them across a tract of
land and they will burn everything; they
have got to have water for them. The
trouble is they have not water enough.
They have got $150,000 worth of silver
ware among them. They will drink
whisky, but they will not buy'it.

An EI Paso dispatch says, an Ameri
can gentleman who has just arrived in
El Paso from western Sonora, reports
that Geronimo and his band of hostile
Apaches are doing considerable mischief
near Babispe. There seems to be very
little doubt that nearly all the Apache
scouts that were in service during the re
cent Apache campaign under Crook have
joined Geronimo. These same scouts,
while still in the federal service, last win
ter, committed many depredations in
that portion of Sonora, stealing stock on
bll occasions, and when ordered to return
the same by their commadding officer,
flatly rafused to do so. It is thought that
in the case of many of these scouts, fear
of punishment has caused them tto join

the public land strip shall be opened to

We have seen an official telegram an
nouncing that this company have pur
chased for cash the Bilk and mining
claims on the west of the King, with an
extensive, efficient plant. The intention
is to make connection with the bottom of
the 1,000-foot shaft on the Bilk claim and
use it for drainage and pumping and ven
tilation. This will enable the Silver
King Company to open their ground in
800, 900 and 1,000 foot levels. The pur
chase was made for cash and the same
has been fully paid. This, we may add,
is an important acquisition for the Silver

its purpose, the expedition marched back
