Ct, After nllmuUvr -.ir tu no starved
uml swindled nml persecuted into rebel
lious violence the (lovcrnment is now en
KKgctlln killing them women and chll
tiircii, as well ns warriors; and, Just as tho
work of tho soldiers bid fair to extermi
nate tho Indium altogether, It occurs tu
Congress that nn Increase in the appro
priations would be Judicious nnd timely.
It will strike tho average citizen, hnvv
'Vrr, that Congress had better couple
with this measure s-oino provision for
jiscertninlng with absoluto aecurasy tho
jiiuuucrin which previous appropriations
linvo been expended, and also tbecaiisss
-which have Wrought up thu Indians to
their present condition of despairing fury.
It is Idlo to attribute tho outbreak to tho
treachery of the Indians. Any ono who
has rend carefully the uncontr.idlctel no
eoimlsof the episode must see that wlioi
the Indians committed tho overt net,
which resulted In the death of Captain
Wallace nnd others, they ncto.l In tho
lull belief that they wero to bo killed. It
was not treachery, as Is so freely charge.l
by coplo who tnlk without thinking.
One hundred and fifty Indians surrounded
by llui hundred nriueil soldiers In broad
daylight cannot commit treachery, nnd
they Know they cannot. The Idea
is absurd. They simply thought,
when thry received tho order to
tlinirm, that tho soldiers were about tj
kill them, nnd, being desperate and angry,
they resohed to tlio fighting rather than
be shut down llko sheep. Things wero
nbout ns haul for them ns they could well
be. llctwccii starvation nnd death by
tlolenco there seemed but llttlo choice, so
they followed tho natural Inclination of
fearless men and flow to anus.
Nobody tlrcnius of blaming tho military
for tho result. The Indians lmo not bean
under tlio mnnngcincnt of tho War Do
Vartnicntjnnd the Department, Is responsi
ble for nothing- up to tho oliit at which
the hostilities began. The wholo thing
1ms been brought nbout by tho mlsninn
jigement of tho civil ollleers, by tho 111
trentiuciit of tho Indians and tho bvl
faith or incompetency of those who had
tlicm In charge. When I he Army under
llcneral C'iiook had charge of tho Iti.llam
In Arlnna, some years ago, thero was en
tire satisfaction on all builds. I.lfo nnd
Iimpoity wero safe In eery juirt of tho
Territory. The mllltury authorities kept
their promises, mited out impartial Jus
tice, punished tho offenders and pro
tected tho uil-bchacd. It N only
under tho irjldio of deceit, tim
idity, Irresolution ami greed, as foi
tend by tho Interior Depaittuent, that tho
tloux hnvo been goaded Into their mud
outbreak. This Is tho testimony of (ien
ernl Jln-nc, who ought to know, nnd It
hears every appearance of probability.

however, of his delivering the Indians to
