HOW TO START AN INDIAN WAR.
From the St. Louis Republican.
While the House commllte on Indian
affairs Is preparing to Investigate tho pres.
ent system of contracts, we suggest to the
honorablo gontlemen tho propriety of be
stowing a passing glance upon a kindred
matter which has lately ttanspirod in
The Uualapais aro a friendly trlbo liv
ing somewhere on tho Gila river in tho
torrltory above montloned. Their num
bers aro comparatively small, but em
brace a large proportion of fighting men ;
and the chief. Sorum, is the best rifle
shot in all Arizona. Until ro
cenlly they havo boen in closo alll
anco with tho govorntuont, nnd on soveral
occasions thoir picked warriors havo lent
valuable assistance to foderal troops In at
tacks upon tho hostilo Apaches. The
homo of the Iluampais on the Oil a is in
tho vicinity ot whito settloments,and they
havo always been excollont nolghbors.
For somo reason, as yet unflxplainud,those
Indians wero notified by tho government
agent in tho latter part of .lanuary that
they mutt movo at onco to anotlior reter
vation,locatcd north of tho Colorado river
tholr lands being wanted for othor pur
poses. A fow wocks delay was granted,
and during tho intorval Sorum callod a
grand councilor tho trlbo and laid thecaso
before theui. Tho result of tbo delibera
tions was that on tho night of tbo first of
February tlio Uualapais. men, women and
children, abandoned tholr old dwelling
placo In a body; and after ponding a met
sago of deflanco to the great father at
Washington through bis agopt, rotroatoa
not to Colorado, but to ft rango of
mountains in tbo northorn part of Arizona,
whore they propote to innko n stand in
Modoc rasblon. About too samo time
Ihlrty-throoof tho tribe, who wero enlisted
In tho army ns scouts, dosortod with arms,
accoutrements and ammunition, and jolnod
tholr comrades on tho inarch.
Tho Arizona 'Minor,' a journal notori
ously prejudiced against Indians in gon-
oral, says in tubttanco "that tne uuaiapais
wero driven into tueir present dosperoto
attitude by acts nnd throats of .appointocs
of the Indian ring, because they aro
wanted to swell tho lists of tho Colorado
Indian rctorvotion In order thnt tboy may
put monoy in some-body's pockot; and that
they will dio ratcor than go wuore, ir not
starvod to death, tho clltnuto would soon
shrivel thorn into muminkM, and disease
finish tho work." A correspondent of the
ban .Francisco 'unronicic.'who writes troni
Camp liualo Spring, coincides with tbo
view takon by tho 'Minor,' and st toe,
moroover, " that tbo Hualapais havo
lived in peace with tho whites tor
threo years ; that they have done
nothing to warrant tbo removal,
and that they will die to tho last man
rather than submit to what they re
gard as a gross breach of faith and nn
inexcusablo, unondurablo outrage." What
adds to the serious character of this dis
graceful affair, is tho fact that these In
dians wore for a long time bittor enemies
of the government and resisted all at
tempts to sabduo them by force of arms.
They were finally brought Into peaceful
rolations by acompromiso and that ootn
promise the agents of the government
have now deliberately violated.
Here, then, wo have the beginning or
war which may be far more costly In blood
and monoy than the memorable strugglo
with tho Modocs a war, too, tho moral
responsibility of which rests upon the
United States, and not upon tho Indians,
With half a continent at its disposal, could
not the government afford room on the
To drive them from their homes under
such circumstances is not morely a crimo,
but a stupendous blunder, incapable alike
oi uerence or apology, me nine sure
of ground acquired by this transaction
will be paid for in the lives of many brave
men: wo only hopo that some or tno mem'
bers of the Indian rinc may bo tbo first
victims.- Meanwhilo, perhaps itts not too
late to avert the worst consequences by
restoring the Hualapais to their rightful
possessions. Will congress perform this
act of justice? If not, then let public
opinion place tho burden ot blame and
shame whero it bolongs.
