The general idea is that the
American Indian is a thing of the
past that he has been on the de
cline for a hundred years or more
and that he is practically extinct.
It seems that this is n mistake,
and that he is more virile and
more plentiful, as well as vastly
richer than when Columbus first
There are some 300,000 Indians
in (he United States and they are
coining to hold 'an important
place, and exercise a consider
able influence, not as Indians, but
i.r Ameri'11 citizens, and men
The danger to the Indian, a.-?
an Indian, is no longer the rifle,
the raid, and bad whiskey, but
It has always been more or
less in order for white men to
marry Indian women, from the
days of Smith and Pocahontas
down, but that didn't affect the
Indian race, there were plenty of
Indian women left for straight,
But since the young Indian
man has fallen heir to large
tracts of agricultural laud and
natural resources of great value,
and has also secured more or
less of, at least the superficial
culture and comfort that go with
these things, he is increasingly
in demand as an eligible and de
sirable husband. And it seems
that there is a growing convict
ion, even among attractive and
intelligent young women, that
Indian blood is mighty good
blood. lie is the original Ameri
can, with more blue blood in him
than any of us, and a strain of
it in our descendants will give
them a sort of patrician touch of
exclusiveness and distinction.
So, it seems, the girls are "lay
ing for" him.
And Lo, the Poor Indian, poor
no longer, but independently rich
so very commonly falls to
their charms that the Indiau
race is in danger of being whit
eued out of existence. The child
ren will be no longer Indian, not
even in sympathy, they will rise,
or at least change, to the level of
their mothers. The "half-breed"
may look a good deal like an
Indiau but he doesn't feel like
one. lie abandons completely
the traditions, superstitions, and
customs of the tribe. When it
thunders he no longer thinks the
Great Spirit is thumping around
on the roof of the Heavens, but'
Jie hopes it will not rain and
spoil his new derby hat.
Aim lie again will marry a
white woman, or a half-white,
and the process will go on until
there is no real Indian left. In a
word the very same thing is go
ing on in the Indian country that
is going on here with regard to
the Hawaiians, they are being di
luted out of existence.
And the results are said to be
on the whole, most satisfactory.
The half-white Indian generally
makes good. He very commonly
inherits the best qualities of both
his ancestors, and with educat
ion and larger experience of the
world, and of the powers and re
sponsibilities of an independent
competence, he will increasingly
hold his own in the competition
The Indian's great lack is the
power of organization. He is in
telligent and often has the high
est qualities of character, but he
cannot shape an elaborate plan
and carry it out. The fusion of
the Indiau blood with the white
will give him the qualities that
he lacks and in the generations to
come, with a toui-k of the noble ;
led man in them will be power
