JOSEPH SITS IN COUNCIL
WITH HIS FORMER FOEMJtN
Chief Joseph and General Howard, Old Foes
Meet in Friendly Conference
"I wish my children would learn more
and more every day, so they can mingle
with white men and do business with
them as well as anybody else."
These are not the words of young
Chief Joseph the during leader of Nez
Perce warriors—the man who defied
the white man and his armies; they are
the words of old Chief Joseph, con
quered, banished, made wise by years
and trouble, speaking to the Indian
boys and girls of the Carlisle school.
A striking incident of the anniver
sary exercises at the Indian Industrial
school at Carlisle, Pa„ last month is set
forth In the Red Man and Helper, the
school publication. This was the pres
ence of General O. O. Hward and Jo
seph, chief of the Nez Perces, the com
mander in the remarkable Indian war,
of which General Howard has written
in his book, "Chief Joseph of the Nez
Perces in Peace and War."
The meeting of the two leaders In
that war 27 years after It ended in
Chief Joseph's suppression, and the
things they said to the Indians boys
and girls at Carlisle, make a picture
out of the ordinnry. Thus General
Howard Is quoted as saying:
"There are no people we honor more
than we do the Indians. You will say,
•But didn't you fight the Indians?"
Yes, I am an army officer. I would
.fight you if you rose up against the
"I want it understood that when I
(ought with Joseph I was ordered by
the government at Washington to take
Joseph and his' Indians to the reserva
tion that was set aside for them. Jo»
seph said lje would not go on any res
ervation. A majority of the band had
agreed to leave and go to the place
designated. But Joseph and White
Bird and Booking Glass ware left out.
They did not agree to the treaty be
cause they did not understand that a
majority rules. They would not agree
to be ignored and left out In the divi
sion of land when the best of It was to
go to somf one else.
"After the Indians accepted the res
ervation the government of the United
States reduced it and reduced it again,
and the Indians rebllled and I was
sent to carry out the government's in
structions. I could not do otherwise.
I did my best to perform the duty.
Some would not come. I understood the
yeason then. But It Is all past. It
took a great war.
"I would have done anything to avoid
the war. even to giving my life. But
the time had come when we had to
fight. There comes times when a fight
is a mighty good thing, and when It is
over let's lay down all our feelings,
and look up to God and see If we can
not get a better basis on which 1 to live
and work together.
Colonel Pratt, the head of the school,
in calling out the other leader, stated:
"I present to you Chief Joseph of the
Nez Perces in Washington. General
Howard and Joseph fought each other
in '77, two years before Carlisle began.
Their line of battle was 1.400 miles
long. We think Gettysburg a big bat
tlefield. and we are proud of it. Joseph
would not go on his reservation, and
had his way for a time. He really
never did go there. I have always re
garded Chief Joseph as one of our
great Indians. He kept ahead of Gen
eral Howard for 1,400 miles."
The speech of Chief Joseph, as in
terpreted to the audience, is reported
"Friends, I meet here my friend,
General Howard. 1 used to be so anx
ious to meet him. I wanted to kill h'im

and glad to meet everybody here, and
to be friends with General Howard.
We are both old men, still we live
and I am glad. We both fought in
many wars and we are both alive.
"Ever since the war I have made up
my mind to be friendly to the whites
and to everybody. I wish you, my
friends, would believe me as I believe
hyself in my heart in what I say.
When my friend. General Howard, and
I fbught together. I had no idea that
we would ever sit down to a meal to

New Engine of Warfare that
Will Do Away With the
The day of the thrilling cavalry
churge, the whoop and hurrah of war,
has passed. No more will gleaning
sabers flash as horse and rider dash
full tilt at the enemy.
Long-range guns of frightful pene
trating power long since put the cav
alry arm of the service at a disad
vantage. So-called cavalrymen must
now fight on foot with the infantry,
while the artillery is almost relegated
to purely defensive work along the
coasts, except as it appears in "light
batteries" with quick-firing guns.
Now the armored motor car has ap
peared—a mechanical combination of
cavalry and artillery.
A remarkable proof of the feasibility
of using armored motor cars In warfare
was shown King Edward VII. when he
visited the great English gunnery es
tabll8hment at Whale island a few
days ago. In the car, which was pro
vided with a steel armored shield pro
tecting the driving seat and tonneau,
pierced with porthole and outlook slits,
were placed a Maxim service gun, a
chauffeur and a gunner.
A target had been set up, and start
ing from the further end of the long
gunnery range, the fortified car was
rushed along at a rate of twenty miles
an hour, firing as it advanced. An
examination of the target showed that
the work of the fort on wheels had
been most effective, the accuracy of
aim being its great its though the gun
had been stationary.
There is little of the romantic in
horseless cavalry, but ns an engine
of destruction it can easily be seen
that one well armored motor car could
put to (light a whole regiment of cav

IN THE WALL.
A Structural Opportunity Success
It sometimes happens in an old fash
ioned house that there is a small space
between the side of a chimney and a
division wall, or there may be a recess
leading to an unused door. Such a
structural opportunity may be turned
to very pretty account, as suggested by
the accompanying sketch, especially if
it happens to occur in parlor or living
The recess is lined with a material
of some dark color, velvet, velours or
fluted silk, so as to make a good back
ground to the china and bric-a-brac
ranged on the shelves. These latter
might be variously designed to suit the
character of the room. In the illustra
tion they are supported by fretwork
brackets, or they might, if preferred,
be shaped with curved fronts like the
shelves of an old Dutch cupboard, col
ored and varnished or lacqnered.
