ev y t v 'A THE INDIAN QUESTION. General Crook Makes Ills Eeport, Fall Reviewing the Indian Trouble. ' Washington, December 4. Brigadier General Crook, commanding the Depart ment of Arizona, in his annual report de scribes at considerable length the circum stances which attended the outbreak of the Chiricahuas, under Geronimo, Mangus and other chiefs last spring, and declares sub stantially that the want of harmony be tween the agents of the Interior Depart ment and the military makes such outbreaks possible. He says that upon returning to the Department of Arizona in 1882 be found the Apaches huddled about the agency, where there was no land for them to cultivate. The Indians complained of this, and the agent, Mr. Willcox, acknowl edged the justice of the complaint, but said he "was acting in strict compliance with his orders in keeping them there. He said, however, that if General Crook would take the whole responsibility of their manage ment, he (Willcox) would make no objec tion...

f Y y rV" r 'A THE MILITARY SERVICE. Reforms in This Branch of Government Bronght About by "Wise Democratic I-esislatio-tk The most important and suggestive fact in all the current annual reports of the military establishment is the great decrease of desertions. During the previous year the number of deserters had been 3,741; and that this prodigious loss was not exceptional is made known by examining also the records of the two years preceding that one. The aggregate desertions for those three years we find to have been nearly 11,000 in exact figures 10,991, which is an average of 3,604 annually. The maximum enlisted strength of the army is 25,000, a number rarely reached on any given date on account of expiring enlistments; indeed, Gen eral Sherman, after deducting the va rious permanent detachments, once estimated the average enlisted strength for army work at 23,000. Hence, the deserters of 188 1 numbered nearly one in six of all the enlisted men. When we find, therefore, that d...
