when the aboriginal ward of the
nation should become oitiiseiiH mid
earn lliuir own living.
Tim plan, on paper, is iilmis
ihle as tho prospuctiM of an export
piomotcr. iSotliing could appear
10 Indian by the
government and insisMiiccaftor that
upon his upplioati n to thu pursuits
of peace. It really looks ho easy
that pu-noim who read thu annual
reports of CoiiiiitisHionui- Jones and
Ins recommendations wonder why
it is that there is remaining in the
United Status a solitary red man
who is not the exemplary head of a
model household or an aotivo work,
er in a lloitrihhing Sunday school.
In a land which has been pointed
to again and again as wholly mate
ria hbtio in its spirit and purposes,
therr has been more hentimentalily
lavished upon the Indian than has
ever been bestowed upon any other
cause or people in the history, of the
world. The sorrowful sympathy of
humanity over the fall and partition
of Poland and the later learn whieh
have fallen because of the llritish
aggrossion and tyranny in the Trans
vaal, are evanescent and trivial
as compared with the pcrronuial and
tender concern of Uncle Sam for
tho poor Indian.
MilHouu iipoii-niillioiiH of dollar
liavo boon expended by the govern
ment upon the red men in this
country m order that they might he
fed and clothed without toiling and
spinning, liio gratuitous supplies
have (-.topped, it is true, at rum,
but only because lire water causes
ho precious Indians to injure each
other. Whon the copper dolorcd
warriors liavo taken the battlo trail
and devastated the frontier, the De
partment of War has been careful
to send out such forces against them
as to givo the Indians at least an
even show, with a fair chance of
working in a heroic and pictures
"As a matter of fact, the United
States has always acted as if it
thought it took the lauds of tho
Indians from them, and that, for
this reason, tho government ought
to be good to them. Hut even judg
ing the case on tho hypothesis, the
money paid to tho Indians running
up into hundreds of millions of dol
lars ought to square tho account.
From an ethical standpoint it
would lio perfectly proper to com
pel tho Indians to work. Tho only
weak point in tho program is that it
can't bo done. ISut tlio supplies can
bo out down if tho tender sensibil
itics of the nation can stand it. Kx
