but it should not be so. It Sherman
commands on the Plains, calls councils
to threaten the savages in words they
well know to be meaningless, and closes
with the distribution of powder and ball,
extermination will come. The army
will not accomplish it by deeds of valor,
but will be the chief agency in making
it imperative. If the teetering sores in
the shape of Indian agents, which are
polluting both the savages and every
channel of power within their reach, are
permitted to remain, extermination is
inevitable. But if a wise, honest policy
is adopted and firmly maintained, the
Indian will live and the white man will
have peace. To effect this there must
be radical changes.
First : Tile whole system of Indian
agencies must "be swept away. With
one accord they espouse the cause of the
savage to plunder him. They are, as a
class, pestiferous thieves and heartless
falsifiers, and are justly responsible for
half the graves which dot the Plains.
They violate the faith of the Government
to increase their peculations, and encour
age war to plunder both camp-. They
know that Indian wars, so tar, have been
but appalling murders on the part of the
savages, resulting in increased annuities
for them to steal. They are the great
curse of the Welt, and have become a
blistering stain upon our national repu
Abec4nd: The Government should cease
to propose councils or treaties with the
Indians of the Plain-. They are common
enemies, and have forfeited all rights by
their proverbial inhumanity. They be
l, ive that the G~overnment fears them,
and they have no respect for treaty obli
gations. They meet Gienerals but feel
not their swords. They see armies mar
shaled against them in grand array, but
they evade them until they can be mur
dered in detail. They violate treaties
whenever want or revenge demands it,
and have thus far in this war, been well
paid for every fresh atrocity. Why,
therefore should they observe faith?
Why should they respect and fear the
Government r For every Indian that
has fallen they have scalped ten of Sher
man's warriors, and a score of emigrants
and settlers beside. The Government
can have peace only by determining on
its policy, and then firmly enforcing it.
It must regard tlihem as subject to its
will-to be liberal and humane, as be
comes a great Government-and not as
a treaty-making power, for the Indian
is a barbarian and a stranger to the re
sponsibilities imposed by treaties. The
Government must determine-not propose
-the solution of this vexed question.
whose history is so fearfully stained with
innocent blood. They should be told
that they must surrender the Plains,
and remove South to a genial climate,
where cattle and corn can be raised in
the midst of their idleness. They should
be s-ent where civili-iatiou will not en
croach upon them, and there let them
be the recipients of any measure of Gov
ernmental beneficence. No councils
should be heid with them, except to no
tify them of the purpose of the Govern
ment, and the period allowed for their
removal. Let them understand that re
tusal will be war, and war in their own
way, until there issubmission. What I
mean by war in their own way, is not
a premium for "scalps with the ears on "
but that every violation of humane war
fare shall he fearfully atoned for by any
of the guilty tribe that may be captured
and that Western troops shall be their
foes in battle. The Indian will then obey,
and will live until his natural debauch
eries obliterate this blot upon mankind.
lhird: Send nherman to the Holy
Land, and select competent military
men who have some sympathy with the
struggling pioneers of civilization, to
enforce the policy of the Gov~tnment.
Send Gen. Phil. Sheridan. Glen. Connor,
and tGen. Barney to declare to the In
dians the purposes of the Government,
and they will understand what it means.
They will be treated humanely, and, as
a rule, go in peace. When fixed upon
their reservations, let the Indian Bureau
be transferred to tlth War Department,
and there will be direct responsibility
and justice to all.
Fourt/h: if any Indanus refuse to leave
the Plains, do not repeat the costly and
bloody tarce of sending regular troops
to enforce obedience. After a generous
policy has been proffered them, let each
W.'estern State or Territory be authot
ized to raise the number of troops neces
sary to clear the savages from their
borders. The cost will not be one dollar
for ten required to perform the same
task with the regular army. The Indians
will not wait for the advent of the Moun
tain troops--they will go. for their choice
will be to go or die, There will be no
Sherman pow-wows; no silly pleadings;
no idle threats; no distribution of amu
nition to conciliate them. It will be war
from the start and war in earnest-just
what the Indians cannot endure. For
every act of inhumanity to a prisoner
there will be terrible retribution, Less
than 400 Montana volunteers protected
the whele eastern border of the settle
ments last Summer. The Gallatin Val
ley is the most fruitful in Montana, and
it swarms with the finest stock. It is
but a few miles from the hostile country,
separated by a low mountain range,
through which there are many passes;
but the settlers were safe, for no bostile
Indian could enter the valley and hope
to escape with his life Nor did the
duties of these volunteers end with pro
tecting 100 miles of exposed borders.
Fort Smith, with its garrison of nearly
200 men. was besieged by the savages,
and Sherman, with all his forces, could
not supply the starving troops. Capt
DeLacy. with 45 mountain volunteers,
marched 250 miles through the hdstile
country with a train for the relief of the
fort. The savages could not surprise
him-they dare not fight him, and they
allowed him to go and return in peace.

the natural route to Montana, and the

Montana is reached without crossing the
Rocky Range--by the other overland
routes south, the mountains mast be
crossed twice. It traverses the eastern
base of the mountains, has fine streams
and pasturage, and is the only route that
has those priceless advantages. It will
not only be the great highway between
Montana and the East, but it must soon
have a profitable railroad to connect the
rich valleys and mines of this Territory
with the western centres of trade. Its
bountiful crops, precious metals, and
genial climate will soon make continuous
settlements frcm the Gallatin until the
waves of progress from east to west join
in the mountain valleys. No tribe can
justly claim it. It was stolen by the
Crows, and they in turn were dispoiled
by the Sioux. To whom should it be
given as a reservation ? NTo tribe now
in existance could give other than the
thief's title to it. or claim it on any high
er right. No savage now owns it, and it
is not only absurd, it is simply impossi
ble, to surrender it to the savage simply
because he is a savage. The pioneers of
the West will open this route, will keep
it open, will settle on it, will work its
mines and reap its harvests, whether the
Government abandons it or not. It is
now just enough under military control
to prevent settlers from protecting
themselves. The mere abandonment of
the forts and route by the national au
thorities would be of little consequence,
but the attempt to surrender it to the
Indians by treaty and exclude the whites
from it, as has been proposed, would be
a foolish attempt on the part of the Gov
ernment to do an impossible thing. If
the Government can do no more for the
people of Montana, let it withdraw from
the contest for supremacy on the plains,
and there will be early and enduring
peace, for it will be the peace of death
to the savage. One or the other races
must reign here, loth cannot. Which
it will be, requires no prophetic pen to
determine After all our weak and cost
ly diplomacy, the inevitable end will be
reached, and the nomadic tribes will
fade away, either through war or peace,
and leave their hunting grounds to
make golden tields for their pale-faced
