Ban Francisco, April 20.—The details of the peace conference at camp Verde, Arizona, the Cth of April, were received to-night. Tho conference resulted ill tho unconditional sub mission and surrender of two of the worst bands of Apaches. Peace was brought about through tho complete route of the bands of Apaches who have defied the government for twenty years past. Over 200 of their warriors have been killed in their campaigns in the fastnesses of the, Apache country. Tlie council opened at 0.30 o’clock a. m. Cracky, a Mojava Indian, was interpreter. The war chief of tho Tonto Apaches, with 150 men, women and children, joined tho council, and the warriors gave up their arms when the talk began. Tho Apache chiefs were tlie first speakers. They ail acknowledged their complete defeat and ex pressed a desire for peace. Gen. Cook replied briefly, accepting their surrender. The chiefs promised to send word to all outside Indians in arms to come in and surrender. Crook prom ised to issue passes for their protection to run ners to be employed in spreading the news of peace. When the conference broke up tlie vanquished Apaches went up the river to the old military post, where feast was given them. The general policy will be to treat the Indians humanely, place them on the reservations,make them no promises that caanot be fulfilled, to maintain order among them, and instruct them in simple duties, thus proving io them that peace is better than war. Gen. Crook in his general orders, commends by nanio a long list of officers and soldiers for gallantry in the last campaign. Perfect har mony exists between the officers and the In dians at the war department. Tho terms of the treaty will be strictly enforced and there seems to be no doubt that peace thus inaugur ated will ho permanent. m TIIE MODOC WAR Tho itamls Still ist !3ii‘ JLava Beds.
