A second report on the Indians of the
Southwest has been received at the In

intendent of Indian Schools. The report
deals with Indians in Arizona, and gives
prominence to the Apaches and Nav1ns.
The whole Indian population of the Ter
ritory is given as 35,707, and the number
of children available for schools as
4,280. This is an increase in the popu
lation since 1880 of 8,276. Of the chil
dren about 1,200 attended school either
in Arizona or elsewhere. In 1880 only
seventy-three children of Arizona In
dians made any pretense of attending

thnnsh vet small, are said to be increas
ing each year, and for 1883 accommoda-
'tions will be furnished for 1,070 children
in the Territory. Ibe Superintendent is
not favorable to removing Indian chil
dren to Northern schools.
