THE INDIAN QUESTION.
From The Evening Chronicle,Pittsburjjli,
Pa., October 30.
Even those who are most willing to
have the peace policy of the President
towards the Indians, given the fullest
and fairest trial, and who defend such
a policy upon considerations of
humanity and justice, must admit
that it is right the white settlers on
the frontier should be heard, and that
it is inexcusable to answer their ap
peals by styling them " brutal ruf
nans," as a Philadelphia paper did
recently. The dispatches have in
formed us from time to time of the
great discontent and indignation pre
vailing amongst the inhabitants of
Arizona relative to repeated Indian
outrages, and a petition is being large
ly signed in the Territory for pre
sentation to President Grant re
monstrating against Colyer's peace
policy and enumerating the murders
committed by the Apaches.
We have received irom Mr. Wasson,
editor of The Citizen, published at
Tucson, Arizona, a detailed statement
of the condition of affairs in that dis
tant and exposed region. He states
that hundreds of lives have been de
stroyed by the Indians, houses have
been burned, settlements been aban
doned, mails captured and Govern
ment property taken by force, al
though peace after peace had been
made with the Apaches, only to be
broken. He says that every man and
woman in Arizona knows it would be
rashness to travel alone one mile be
yond the large towns or settlements
eastward irom there or anywhere in
Arizona except on the Lower Colorado
and Lower Gila rivers, and declares
that " the press of the western half
of the nation with one accord has
demanded that safety should be given
the people of Arizona, or her civil
government abolished and full sway
given to the savages."
Mr. Colyer's mission is to induce!
the hostile Indian to go upon reserves, I
and there remain and keep the peace
and cease to plunder. His want of
familiarity with the Indian character
largely renders his efforts nugatory,
he chieis, according to Mr. Wasson
have no confidence in him, and if Mr
Wasson is correct, "No Indian could
be coaxed or bribed to accompany him
to Washington." Mr. Wasson ad
dressed a letter to Mr. Colyer, setting
lorth at length a doctrine well-established
in the West, that the Indian
respects nothing but superior force,
and denying that the whites hated, the
Indians as such, but sincerely desired
a solid peace. To this letter no reply
was granted, and Mr. Colyer is ar
raigned as holding aloof from the
whites, and suppressing any informa
tion discreditable to the Indians.
Mr. Wasson contrasts vividly the
difference between the results of the
energetic policy pursued by General
Crook and the so-called peace policy
General Crook, according to our au
thority, was not in the Department
two months until he had order out of
disorder, and the power of the force
at his command aroused from inutility
to acknowledged progress in the right
direction. Officers and men alike gen
erally exhibited a share or that earn
estness in duty and desire for success
which so prominently distinguishes
General Crook. The available
strength of his command was soon
ascertained and with all dispatch ef-
ctively organized: hundreds of
miles of the Indian haunts were
scouted under the personal supervision
of the intelligent and observant com
mander ; the important fact that hor
ses could without grain do the neceo-
sary campaigning, was fully demon
strated ; independent commands,
embracing in all some seventeen
troops of cavalry, to be assisted by
friendly disposed Indians, were ready
to be hurled upon the hostile Ind
ians under a well considered system,
and with General Crook untrammelled,
the people had not the slightest doubt
ot a lasting peace being conquered in
a comparatively short time.
Then came the so styled peace policy
and the repetition of Indian outrages
Certainly people will begin to think
that Generals Sherman and bheridan
are right in their views on this Indian
question, and if -those views need fur
ther support they have it in the tes
timonv of General Marcv, who is as
familiar with the Indians of the Plains
as anv mmi in the United States. He
has no faith in treaties with Indians,
and regards force as the only means
of keeping them in order. They are
implacably hostile to civlization and
one or the other must give way
There has grown up a sort of senti
mentality in the East in regard to the
Indian which will be prompt to as
sail any one who is not willing to
believe that the bulk of our frontiers
men are " brutal ruffians," or that the
white men, wonien and children of the
distant settlements have no rights
which an Indian is bound to respect.
We would not discourage practical
peace effoits to keep the human wild
beasts of the border from stealing
and murdering, but we firmly hold
that the Government must at the
same time operate on the fears of the
savages, and that this is the best pos
sible way to restrain them from
slaughter and rapine. This is the
view maintained by those who have
lived longest with the Indian and
seen most of his treaciu rous, cunning,
malignant and blood thirsty nature
Some weeks ago, we remarked thac
the Territories had acquired a power
ful and zealous friend in the election
of Honorable W. H. Clagett to Con
gress in Montana. We have just re
ceived a letter from him dated Keokuk,
Iowa, October 30th, wherein he says :
I think I can see the Colyer tableaux
without much description. I have
written to my old friend SafTord, and
hope you will keep me posted con
cerning your affairs in Arizona; for
although your Territory is far distant
from mine, the interest of all the Ter
ritories are identical on this Indian
question, and there should be a unity
of purpose and action on the part of
the several Delegates. You can rely
upon my aid in supporting the policy
of General Crook, which will of
course be a support to your people.
I know of too many men who have
been murdered by those Apaches, and
over too long a time, to believe that
any peace can be made with them
until they have been well thrashed
I will go to Washington in a few
We now repeat our former statement
that the House of Eepresentatives
will have no more active and able
member, and what power he may
lack for want of a vote, he will most
likely make up in well-directed and
untiring labor. His oratorical ability
was highly complimented in aninvita
tion by the Eepublican central com
mittee of Ohio to assist in the late can
vass of that State, which was also a
recognition of his power to influence
the masses, wThich faculty commands
attention with thoie high in authority,
The friendship of such a man is of
much worth to Arizona.
The letter of John Montgomery, of
San Pedro, shows how earnest and
honest settlers become depressed and
encouraged by certain methods of
Indian management. Under the Col
yer programme, they were making all
preparation to abandon homes which
under only tho prospective rule of
General Schofield, they are determined
to hold and improve. Can any man
read Mr. M.'s letter and then say
that Colyer's kind of management is J
not blighting to both public and
private interests ? j
As a Eepublic, Mexico is a failure

A lew weeks ago we published
thn fnp.f. of imnnndino- revolution in

some of our readers thought would
not prove to be a fact. A friend in
Guaymas, under date of 12th inst
writes us as follows
I presume you have heard of our

about the garrison of this port
revolting on the night of the 29th

A few days ago Cachiso and his
band of Indians stole over 100 head of
cattle from near Fronteras. An ex
press to the latter place for help found
all the troops off to Guaymas ; and on
going to Santa Cruz on liko errand,
there found the same condition of
things. Thus it will bo seen that
while Cachise and his warriors are, un
opposed, robbing the northern Sonora
settlements, revolts and robberies
along the coast towns are going on by
Mexican citizens and officials.
