Description American would with us where a quarrel had been settled in favour of a "nigger" opponent. As we dispersed, the miserable pony in dispute, which had been led up and down during the hearing, was ridden off bare- backed by a boy towards the hills. I asked Mr. Cannon why they didn't keep it safe in the stables of the village, but he said that no Indian would touch it on the ranch until the case was decided.

K. says it is the first time he ever saw an Indian treated fairly in a Court of Law. In the afternoon we drove to see the river of lava on the Clara.

Here was only a long pile of great shining black stones in disorder just apparently as the torrent had cracked in cooling. The Mormons said it had probably filled the bed of `hThis lava bed is visible today from the old U. S. Highwav 91 betlveen St. George and Santa Clara. 35
