Johv Quicv Ahau tliinkt tl.o 41h of

on that day whether we wero following
out thoao great principlea which our fath
er! laid down tor our guidance ono hun

The proposition won't do we may pray
any day, "to follow the principles of our

the nation's centennial only comei once

THE 1EM3K COMMISSION AND
A few days ago, the Indian peace com
missioners issued their Dull annual repoit.
The paper gives a picture of Indian nf-
fairs, highly flattering to the red mon nnd
very encouraging to nil who bollevo tho
peace policy the correct ono lo bo initio
talned by tho government iu it dealings
with and treatment of llio Indians. Tho
coinmlsilonert represent the Indians as
steadily improving in temper and dispusl
tlon, rapidly advancing in civilization,
nd strongly due iron for tho benollts of
ichools and other appliances of c'ivIiuh
lion. Those features of thn report are apt
to give .tbe reader an impression that the
Indians, under tha ministration! of thu
peaeo commissioner?, aro losing their nat
ural Instincts toward barbarity awl blood
shedthat they no longer desire to bo
called savages, ana should, in jitstico to
them and their teachers, the gontlo peace
commissioner!, be designated by somo oth
It is a great pity, for tho ptmco commie
sion, that so loon after tho issuo of thoir
report, the ncwi from the frontier should
be of the bloodthirsty character it is. The
Indians appear lo have fallen from tho
grace acquired undor tho teaching of thu
eommliiion in a very sudden, very unac
countable and very alarming manner.
They are engaged in murdering tho
United States aoldior, burning the agen-
cies, stealing the honot and rnulet belong,
log to the gorernmont arid 60ttlein, nud
with an ingratitude which mum beharper
than a lerpent's tooth to the pa.icu com
iniitloner, throwing away tho liour which
has been lisuod to them and wattluz thoir
supplie! of boef Iu a vnry improvident
manner. Under all tho circumstances, it
will be ncceuary fur the government to
employ the soldiery in an effort to bring
the Indians to a tense of their duty hi
taught them by the psnce commlmlon.

The fact that Senators Conkling, fro
lingbuyien, Morton and Morrill, of Maine,
deolined to isrve on thi committee to in
mitigate the doing! of the board of pub
lic works who run matlnra and thing In
the District of Columbia, and Samator
.Sherman's laotlon for the Senate to ro.
consider its anent to the investigation,
gave riie, very natuially.to the suspicion
that there was more than a dUlucliuation,
on the part of fcenator, to Invwtlgato
their frlendi; that theie wss a plan on
foot to iquelch the whole matter. Heoa
tor Sherman is good enough in a wriggle,
but not bold enough to Hand up and in
cur public censure, and ia accordance
with tbeso traits, hu yciterdy withdrew
Ills notion to reconiider and give out that
his own convictions prompted him to do
it as be felt that he had made a great mis
take. If Morton bad bocn Intrusted with
this motion be would nurer have whined
about conviction!, but would have (tuck
by tho board of public worki liko a major.
The vacancy tto chairmanship will be
filled to-day, If there can be a Jtsdlcal
senator found who is not an habitue of the
