Iletluuhig; tlie Army.
A few years ago. when it was proposed to re
duce the Army to a maximum of less than 25,000
men, those opposed to the movement developed
sufficient strength to defeat it in Congress, hut
the reduction is being made all the same. First
Canby and the unfortunates who died in the far
Northwest among the lava beds; then Custer
and his nearly 300 ofiiccrs and men slaughtered
upon the banks of the Pose Bud ; next Thorn
burgh and his gallant troopers farther south,
and now Hentig and his comrades in Arizona j
upon our Mexican border, in all nearly 500 men :
and how many civilians and defenceless women
and children have meantime been murdered by
our red brethren God, only knows.
We are not inclined to lay all the blame for
these frequently recurring massacres for they
! are nothing less upon the Indians. They doubt
j less have good reason for every outbreak, at
least the reason has seemed sufficient to them :
J and so far as the treachery and cruelties practiced
' are concerned, it is their nature to be treacherous
j and cruel. The real responsibility rests with the
Government, or, more properly, with the people
1 of the United States.
i The mawkish sentimentalists of New England
' and the equally mawkish politico-religionists of
' other sections of the country who virtually con-
trol the Indian Department must share one-half
1 of the blame, and those who insist upon main-
taming an army barely sufficient to picket along
the edge of the hostile territory must take upon
themselves the remainder for their burden.
It is no fault of the men belonging to our gal-
hint little Army that they are killed. The only '
wonder is that under our established Indian pol- j
icy any are permitted to survive. The agency j
system, as carried out, and with the treacherous i
material it has under its control ought, seeming- j
lv. to be able to reduce our military establish-

Last week we referred briefly to certain charges
made through the Press against the management
of the Pension Office. We now take occasion in
another column to speak of the matter more fully,
and, as we trust, finally.

Conreriiiiijc the Pension Olliee.
.The readers of Tjie National Tribune
know that durum- the continuance of the long
contest brought on by Mr. John A. Bentley while
he was Commissioner of Pensions we steadfastly
stood the soldier's friend. We propose to con
tinue in the course then mapped out, and in the
future, as in the past, to defend and maintain j
-what we consider to be the best interests and
assist in promoting the welfare of those for whom
we believe we have earned the right to speak,
Such being our purpose we feel it our duty to
j briefly notice some items we have found floating
j through the public press, and which, if allowed
to go uncontradicted, are calculated to mislead
j both pensioners and claimants.
j it has been alleged by more than one paper
and correspondent that the present Commissioner
has reorganized his Department, at least in part, j of procedure or measures calculated to embarrass lmmlrC(1 acrcs 0f forest were burned over involv

they are entitled to, and which were in many
cases denied them by Mr. Bentley to gratify per
sonal spite or secure some selfish end; and de
nied, too, without reason and without law.
Again, it has been said that the Deparment is
being manipulated, to some extent at least, in
the personal interests of the Commissioner, and
that appointments have been made under him at
the instance of claim agents, who are thus
enabled to maintain representatives in his office
at the public expense.
We have taken occasion to examine into this
charge as well as others herein mentioned, and
pronounce it to be, like the one above referred
to, without foundation : and we further say that
it stamps the individual who made it as a par-
tisan of Mr. Bentley or of his cause. Those
who learned to know the latter during his four
years of office require nothing further upon this
good opinion, ana tnat tins practice is simply a

would be required to dispose of those thus given '
precedence. His rules are: 1. To take up cases
in their regular order according to date of filing.
2. To examine and dispose of claims without
regard to date of filing, whenever it is made to
appear that the evidence has been furnished

To take up such a case is within the discretion '
of the Commissioner, and to do so at the request
of a Senator or member having no pecuniary in
terest in the matter, is no more than a courtesy
which every Congressman has a right to expect.
But even in such instances, so far as we have
knowledge, certain requirements must be com
plied with, in order to insure immediate action,
and chief among them this:
When application is made to hae a case ad-
vanced, it must ordinarily be shown that some '
extraordinary reason exists wky such action
i oujjht to be taken : for instance : The Commis
sioner inquires into the physical and financial
