Last Wednesday it was announced in
the telegraph dispatches that the long
continued strike among the coal miners
in Pennsylvania had come to an end, the
miners making an unconditional surren
der. It is a matter of rejoicing to the
country at large that this prolonged con
flict between capital and labor has termi'
natcd. While we condemn all acts of vi
olence and di-order on the part of the
miners, yet if tho reduction of their
wages was unjust we are sorry that star
vation made it necessary for them
to surrender. Labor is the foundation
ot all capital, and if laborers will united
ly assert their rights in an intelligent,
orderly and peaceable manner they can
generally receive a just compensation for
work performed. Strikes have become
unpopular with the mass of our citizens
more on account ot the drunkenness and
disorderly conduct of. the strikers than
from their demands, being unjust as
they sometimes arc. With the equality
before the law that is enjoyed by all
classes in this country those who per
form manual labor have it in their power
to demand and receive just wages, and
in every contest between labor and capital
where the former has had to unjustly
succumb to the latter, we believe the
J cause can be given in one word, whisky.
The Editorial Association of Indiana

was good. In discussing the question
"Is Co-operation Among County Pub

with one side ready printed was growing
in favor. Among Kansas editors papers
with "patent bowels" are rather unpop

In the discussions started by the pub
lication of Gen. Sherman's "memoirs"
the agreement tlic General made with
Johnson for the surrender of the Confed
erate troops is being investigated. It
seems that Sherman was directed to de
mand a surrender under such terms as
had been given by Grant to Lee, the gov
ernment refusing to sanction the terms
proposed by him. The terms of surren
der as proposed by Gen. Sherman, it is
stated, were submitted by Jeff. Davis to
each member of his Cabinet for written
opinions as to the construction to be put
upon it. The following is an extract
from the letter of the Confederate Post
master General, Mr, Ragan :
"The agreement under consideration
secures to our people, if ratified by both
parties, the uninterrupted continuance
of the existing State governments; the
guarantees of the Federal Constitution,
and of the Constitutions of their respec
tive States ; the guarantee of their po
litical rights, and of their rights of per
son and property, and immunity from
future prosecurions and penalties for
their participation in the existfng war,
on condition that we accept the consti
tution and Government jof the United
States, and disband our armies by march
ing the troops to their respective States,
deposing their arms in the State arsanals,
subject to the future control of the Gov
ernment, but with the verbal under
Standing that they are only to be used
for the preservation of peace and order
in tho respective States. It is also to be
observed that the agreement contains no
direct reference to the question of slav
ery, requires no concession from us tn
regard to it, and leaves ic subject to the
Constitution and laws nf the United
States and of the several States, just as
it was qeforc toe war."

The Indian Territory Again.
It is gratifying to see the business ele
ments ot Kansas City again arousing
themselves to protest against the quar
tering of all the. savage tribes ot the
plains in our fruut ifuor yards.-arid, if
possible, to avert that calamity. . It is
the manifest policy ofthe government
to 'quarter all the Indians together, and
release as much as possible ot the fertile
west to white men and white civilization.
And to such a policy there can be no ob
jection, provided the spot selected be
not one that divides the states and inter
feres with commercial relations. No se
lection that could be made would dam
age the West so much as that ot the In
dian Territory. It lies directly across
the highway ot commerce between the
Missouri valley and the Gulf, and while
locking up to savage barbarism enough
ofthe best country in the West to make
two slates, practically closes the com
mercial channels of all the balance ofthe
West. The Omaha papers are demand
ing the removal of the Indians from Ne
braska, and particularly from the Niob
rara valley, on the ground of the great
fertility of the country they occupy
there, and the want of it for homes for
This argument has its potency and
merits consideration in the case of that
state, but it has greater force when ap
plied to the Indian territory, tor it is
much more fertile than the Niobrara
valley, is greater in extent, has a much
finer climate, a more varied production.
and is much more courted. Besides this
the Niobrara valley does not lie across
the commercial pathway of any body, and
to leave the Indians there will cause no
further damage than to locK up a com-
Caratively small extent of country to
arbarism, while the Indian territory
lies across the commercial pathway of
the whole West, and to lock it up, dam
ages all other portions, which damage
will, in the case ot iNcDrasica, dc more
than the loss of the Niobrara valley.
Besides this demand for the Niobrara
valley there is also a demand- for the
eold mines in the Black hills beyond, a
demand, as the members of the board of
trade aptly termed it, of "a tew roving
But, we are asked, if the Indians can
not be allowed to remain in the Niobrara
valley and the Black Hills, and cannot
be provided with homes in the Indian
territory, where are they to go. We do
not regard it as very material where they
goto, if they are to remain barbarians;
in that case they must continue to go
to keep ont of the way of civilized peo
ple. If they are to become civilized it
docs not then matter so much where
they go to they can go anywhere, like
other people. There is no objection to
them remaining in the Indian territory,
if they be allowed so much country as
will meet the requirements of civilized
life, and the balance be opened to other
civilized people. It is not the presence
of the Indian that is objected to, but the
policy of- setting apart vast areas of
country for them to roam over and main
tain a savage life.
That the present condition of the
Indians is miserable nobody pretends to
dispute. The superfine humanitarians
who would lock civilization out of the
Indian territory concede that the great
need of the Indians is civilization. And
they have been making efforts in that
direction ever since the settlement of
the continent The only question should
be, how can civilization bo best imparted
tn them. It certainly cannot be done at
all so long as they arc excluded from
civilized observances and customs. To
nut them upon a reservation bv them
selves and allow no association with the
hites except the lower cla, as has
bwn the cose heretofore, issimply tn pro
vide for engrafting upon tnem all the
vices of the white race in addition
to their own, and to prevent
them from acquiring any of the virtues
or better habits of the whites.
The effort to teach Indians civiliza
tion by such means has proven a failure,
as, in the nature of things, was inevitable.
To tell a -people of no civilization of the
customs and habits of a state of existence
they have not seen is nonsense, it does
not convey to them any conception of it.
They must see it ; must be associated
with it, or they will not learn. The only
way therefore tocivilizc the Indiansisto
associate 'them 'with civilization; they
must be surrounded by it.
The solution of the whole problem
lies in the establishment'of a government
over the Indians, the allotment of lands
to them as white people own it. and the
opening of the country to white people.
Were this done, the Indian territory
would soon.be filled with intelligent,
law-abiding white people; the Indians
would be surrounded with civilization,
and could soon learn its ways; the coun
try now a fertile waste, would become
the garden of the west, and the commer
cial avenues of the whole western coun
try' would be opened. Were this done
their presence there would not lie a dam
age to tho country, and would be a great
benefit to them. But to fasten them
there, lock white people out, and stop up
commercial avenues, is a most disastrous
blow at western prosperity, and confines
the Indians tonomadic barbarity for all
time. Kansas' City Journal of Commerce.
