NAVY DEPARTMENT, April 25, 1882.
LAWLESSNESS IN ARIZONA,
PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES,
IN RELATION TO
Disorders and laulessness in Arizona.
APRIL 27, 1882.-Referred to the Committee on Military Aftairs and ordered to be
To the Senate and House of Representatires :
By recent information, received from official and other sources, I am advised that an alarming state of disorder continues to exist within the Territory of Arizona, and that lawlessness has already gained such head there as to require a resort to extraordinary means to repress it.
The Governor of the Territory, under date of the 31st ultimo, reports that violence and anarchy prevail, particularly in Cochise County, and along the Mexican border; that robbery, murder, and resistance to law have become so common as to cease causing surprise; and that the people are greatly intimidated and losing confidence in the protection of the law. I transmit his conimunication herewith, and call especial attention thereto.
In a telegram from the General of the Army, dated at Tucson, Ariz., on the 11th instant, herewith transmitted, that officer states that he hears of lawlessness and disorders, which seem well attested, and that the civil officers have not sufficient force to make arrests and hold the prisoners for trial, or punish them when convicted.
Much of this disorder is caused by armed bands of desperadoes known as cowboys, by whom depredations are not only committed within the Territory, but it is alleged predatory incursions made therefrom into Mexico. In my message to Congress at the beginning of the present session, I called attention to the existence of these bands, and suggested that the setting on foot, within our own territory, of brigandage and armed marauding expeditions against friendly nations and their citizens be made punishable as an offense against the United States. I renew this suggestion.
To effectually repress the lawlessness prevailing within the Territory, a prompt execution of the process of the courts and vigorous enforcement of the laws against offenders are needed. This the civil authori.
ties there are unable to do, without the aid of other means and forces than they can now avail themselves of.
To meet the present exigencies, the governor asks that provision be made by Congress to enable him to employ and maintain, temporarily, a volunteer militia force, to aid the civil authorities, the members of which force to be invested with the same powers and authority as are conferred by the laws of the Territory upon peace officers thereof.
On the ground of economy, as well as effectiveness, however, it appears to me to be more advisable to permit the co-operation with the civil authorities of a part of the Army as a posse
comitatus. Believing that this, in addition to such use of the Army as may be made under the powers already conferred by section 5298, Revised Stat utes, would be adequate to secure the accomplishment of the ends in view, I again call the attention of Congress to the expediency of so amending section 15 of the act of June 18, 1878, chap. 263, as to allow the military forces to be employed as a posse comitatus to assist the civil authorities within a Territory to execute the laws therein. This use of the Army, as I have in my former message observed, would not seem to be within the alleged evil against which that legislation was aimed.
CHESTER A. ARTIICR. EXECUTIVE MANSION,
April 26, 1882.
TOMBSTONE, Ariz., March 31, 100% Sir: The unsettled and lawless condition of affairs in Arizona requires strong remedies. I find insurrection, anarchy, and violence prevailing in several important localēties in this Territory; and particularly in Cochise County and along the Mexican Horder robbery, murder, avd resistance of law have become so common that they have ceased to cause the least surprise. The condition of affairs herein referred to creates such insecurity to life and property that business generally has suffered the most serious interruptions. The industries of the Territory require prompt action to afford reliei. "The people have lost confidence in law and goverument, and many fear to trust their dives in any posse or force under the control of the officers in localities where the worst state of affairs exist. The citizens are so intimidated that few of them dare express an opinion adverse to lawlessness and crime. This insurrectionary condition en our side of the line, and the depredations of criminals from Arizona on Mexican soli, disturb our friendly relations with Mexico, and are liable to lead to serious complicaitions. I have no power, no means to restore order, without the aid of Congress. There as no money in the Territorial treasury which can be used to suppress insurrection and resistance of law. I could organize a militia force under the Territorial laws if I had snoney to pay and maintain it, and respectfully request an appropriation for this pure pose; but, in addition to the use of a volunteer force, other relief is required. The difculty of enforcing the law against powerful outlaws and criminals has placed sont of the local officers in such relations with them as to destroy all confidence in their
capacity or desire to enforce the law. There is a Territorial statute relating to the power of the governor to remove county officers, but its provisions are somewhat anubiguous, and in so important a matter I prefer an express declaration of Congress before exercising such function.
If Congress will appropriate $150,000 to suppress insurrection and violence and te aid the civil authorities to enforce process of law, and will also authorize the governo for the period of six months to summarily remove from office any county officer that he Ends to be corrupt, inefficient, or incompetent, and appoint a successor of such efcer to hold his office until the election, I will restore and preserve peace and order.
Please call the attention of Congress to this subject with such recommendation as Way seem proper. Yours, very respectfully,
T. A. TRITLE, Gorerner. His Excellency CHESTER A. ARTHUR,
President, Washington, D. C.
