Title Twelve Mormon Homes, page 095
Description President Young's carriage, but as he did not stop they dropped behind in silence. Their faces were painted up in their best style. One represented an overdone Neopolitan sunset, and another flamed in metallic yellows like a brazen idol. All wore Navajo blankets-an incidental proof of the truth of Kanosh's assertion that no blankets had been furnished them by the United States. These Indians were Pah-vants, the last we saw of Kanosh's band; and I presume the reason that President Young would not stop to hear their complaints, was the same that made him decline so cavalierly to receive Kanosh, at Fillmore; dislike to being supposed to be in league with disaffected Indians while government had him under its frown. Three or four unarmed bands of Navajoes have been coming up as far as Beaver to trade this year. They want horses, and will not take money ; and talk of intending to steal no more; but the Mormons think these virtuous professions are the result of one of their bishops on the Arizona frontier threatening to establish a fortified ranche at the Colorado ford which they must cross in returning from their raids on Utah. The Mormons, as practical a people as they are daring, have gone to the expense of constructing a telegraph line down to the very limit of Utah Territory.50 "OThis would be at Pipe Spring located twenty miles southwest of Kanab, Utah, and ten miles south of the Utah border in the Arizona Strip. James M. Whitmore established a ranch at the Spring early in 1865, but due to Indian hostilities, the rancher withdrew until 1870 when Orson Perry Winsor reoccupied the Spring to raise cattle and make cheese. Shortly after, Brigham Young visited Pipe Spring and ordered a fort built. It was completed in the spring of 1872 and became the southern terminus of the Deseret Telegraph line. Robert W. Olsen, Jr., "Winsor Castle, Mormon Frontier Fort at Pipe Spring," Utnh Historicnl _Ouartedy 34 (1966): 218-26. 95
