Washington, April 0--With tho aid
of Uncle Sam, who has been studying
tho question for many years, tho In
dians may yet muko one of tho big
gest "comebacks" in history. If the
despised Red Alan again takes his
place as tho meat-producer ot Ameri
ca, this return to piomlneuco will
solvo the question ot tho Iudiuif's des
tiny, It is believed by those who have
tho interests of tho original Ameri
cans at heart.
"It is not only possible," says Cato
Sells, tho commissioner of Indian af
fairs, "but ontiroly probable that tho
Indians will become tho foremost
herdmeu of America. Tho situation
presents a business and Industrial op
portunlty, tho successful working out
of which will go a long way townrds
solving tho meat problem."
Thu Indian Is peculiarly fitted to
become national herdsman, It is hold.
Ho is a natural out-of-doors man. Ho
Is nearly always an oxperl rider und
ropor. Ho can train hordB, both of
cuttle and horses, to a control which
whlto men cannot duplicate. As shop
hords, tho Navajoes caro for their
slicop with a fidollty unoqualed among
whlto sheep nion.
Commissioner Soils is a lawyer,
banker, agriculturist and scientific
stockman. Ho knows farming uud
stock-raising and the sound valuo of
securities based on farm land and
stock. And ho knows Indians, He
bought and sold for thorn and from
thorn boforo taking his prosont re
sponsibility. In common with many
others, including President Wilson,
Secretary Houston, and Walter H.
Pago, ambassador to Groat llrltain,
who have studied the subject, Mr.
SoIIh also holds that only scientific
agriculture will conserve tho futuro
of an America suro to doublo Us pop
ulattou nt no very distant date. And
ho thinks tho Indians should have a
part in tills development a logical,
Thu dopuitmcnt of iigrlcultqro
dooms tho question of moat supply
ono of the most serious confrontliiR
tho couutrj and has largo plans for
its solution. Theso Includo tho much,
discussed dUorslllcntlon of southorn
farming, with tho introduction of live
stock as a ataplo sourco of profit. Rut
the Indian reservations offer a largo
opportune to help tho situation.
Hero are vast oxpansos upon which
largo bet da may bo maintained. Tho
problem is to offect almost a revolu
tion in Uu- administration of those
areas whnh will liiBiiro thoir maxi
mum use, utisldorliig both tho uoods
ot the nation and tho needs of tho In
dian. To llnsiKt. tliQAphui ot developing
clal results are possible through the
application of up-to-date stock raising
methods upon Indian lauds is oaslly
shown by tho following illustration:
In 191.1, tho government agents
bought 1,953 yearling Herefords and
five bulls. In 1911, 120 bulls were
bought, making a total of 2,078 head
purchased in all, at a cost of $100,000,
Tho net profit in two years has been
$98,22(1.12. This report covers the
government test on the Shoshone res
ervation. With tho exception of tho
supervision given by the government
superintendent and ouo white stock
man, tho Shoshone herd has been
handled entirely by Indians.
Commissioner Soils began the cam
paign three years ago, when ho or
dered the elimination of tho old or
law-bred bulls, rums mid stallions,
and limiting the leases lo whlto cat
tlemen. Since thnt tlmo somo ?3,000,
000 havo been expended, and tho pur
chases wero principally of blooded
stock. Tho average vuluo of the In
dian horsos nnd cattle has advanced
remarkably. The Indians iccolved
last year from sale ot stock over two
millions, whereas In 1912 their In
come from tholr stock was only ono
nnd a half million.
"ft is a beginning towards remedy
ing an economic- crime," says Com
missioner Soils. "For years thousands
of ncros of prime Indian lands havo
sorved merely to grazo tens ot thou
sands of unsalable native ponies,
scrub cattle, goats and burros. It
costs us much to food a worthless ani
mal as It docs a good ouo. Such a
condition involves not only waste for
tho Indians, but loss to tho nation.
The Indian grazing lnnds, together
with agricultural lands in Indian own
ership, will safely carry several times

Aniston, Ala., April G Tho propos
al of .Tudgo George U. Randolph, Unit
ed States commissioner, that the
whlto people of Aniston get up a rout
ing barbocuo for tho formor slaves
nnd entertain ovory one of them in
this soctloii, has mot with hearty ap
proval. Tho big evont will surely
como off during tho summer, and
thoro will bo plenty of music and
somo speeches. Judgo Randolph has
u warm placo in his heart fontlm

ing out," he says, "and tholr passing
In ninny Instances is only tho culmi
nation of long years of toil and pover
ty. Rut through it all, In scores of
InsUincoH,. thoy proved thoir loyalty
to old families, in nnto-bollum days
Thoro was a time during nnd immedi
ately following tho wnr when theso
old slaves actually provided for and
protoctcd tho women of many good
nld southorn famlllos. Now, before it
a too lato, it seems to me it would
bo a fitting thing to show them u
mark of gratitude ant to demonstrate
that tholr loyalty Is not forgotton."
Now York, April ti A campaign on
"the truth about preparedness," to bo
waged from platforms in tho lnrger
cities in tho central part of the Unit
ed States, will bo launched hero to
night. Tho Anti-Preparedness com
mittee accepted the challenge of Pres.
Wilson to take the stump in defonse
of their cause, and the result Is an
other "swing around tho circle" in
which the administration's measures
for Jncreased preparedness for war
will be handled without gloves. Some
of the most able speakeis of the
country have announced thnt they
will make the tour, nnd aro gath
ered hero today for tho grand open
ing of the campaign tonight.
The Anti-Prepuredness committee
opposes not only the Increase in the
regular military establishment, ns ad
vocated by the administration, but
has announced that it is against the
militia pay provisions of tho Hay bill.
The reception accorded tho argu
ments which tho speakers will put
forth on tho trip may afford some in
dication of tho sentiment which ex
ists throughout a large part of the
country. Immediately after tho re
turn of President Wilson from his
speaking tour two months ago, the
oppononts of his preparedness pro
gram announced they would also
"swing around tho circle."
Speaking of tho opponents of pre
paredness, tho president said in his
St. Louis speech: "Thoy have a right
to talk, but they have no right to at-
foct our conduct. Indeed, It I were
in your place, I would encourage
them to talk. Nothing chills folly
liko exposure to the air, and these
gentlemen ought to be encouraged to
hlro largo halls, and the more people
thoy can got to hear them tho safor
the country will bo."
The commltteo asserts that It has
hlrod the largest halls It could obtain
In each ot tho cities to be visited,
thereby accepting even that condition
of the president's challenge.
