LESLIE M. SHAW, secretary of the

risville, Vt., this week on tariff revis

old friends and neighbors was probably
"on the square." Mr. Shaw said: "I
will not admit that the tariff is the
mother of trusts, nor will I concede
that a tariff for revenue only will de
stroy trusts on any other theory than
that a fire in a wheat field will destroy
Canada thistles. The protective tariff
is not the mother of trusts, though it
is the parent of conditions that makes
it possible for capital to combine and
congenial for labor to organize." Re

HE Commercial West in a recent
issue prints an interview with a Chi
cago capitalist who has j'ust returned
from Cuba where he has a tobacco
plantation which he has been seeking cut up by the Indians, and the air was
to *ell. He says that there is a poor
chance for capital in Cuba at the pres
ent time and little encouragement for
the future under existing conditions.
Cuban banks are at the present time
refusing to make loans on the best
collateral. Sugar that eight months ago
was worth 21 cents is now worth nine
tenths of a cent, and the Chicago man
lays it all to the failure of the recipro
city measure in congress. Tobacco
that a year ago was worth $12 per hun
dred is now worth $5.50. In the mean
time look at our own starving condi
tion in this country. Our beet sugar
factories are so infant that they are
figuring on getting in out of the wet
and consolidating into a beet sugar
combine. Perhaps the Chicago man's
views of conditions in Cuba are some
what overdrawn, and they naturally
would be under the circumstances, but
there are no doubt several grains of
truth in his statements. We saved
Cuba from the horrors of Spanish mili
tary despotism and now we propose to
help starve her to death. Is that it?
With the Indians.
(Special Correspondence to the UNION
LAWRENCE, Minn., Aug. 19, 1902.
The opening pow-wow, the first of a
series of councils which have for their
object the removal of the Indians to
Which Earth, is past and gone. Tues
day morning, the day appointed for the
meeting broke cold and cheerless, but
the inclemencies of the weather in no
wise checked the invasion of the red
men into Lawrence. They came from
noon the townsite of Lawrence had
become a large Indian town and the
shores of the lake were white with
birch bark canoes.
During the morning Major McLaugh
lin had won his way to the red-man's
heart by shooting a large steer in the
vital spot behind the ear, from a good
range. The steer was immediately
soon rich with the fragrance of roasted
beef cooking wherever there was a
The council was called at 2:30 p. M.
and the act of congress providing for
the removal of the Indians was first
interpreted to them. Major Michelet
then made a strong statement and ar
gument, encouraging the Indians to
settle on a reservation where they
could acquire title to land and property,
and would not live like vagabonds on
the face of the earth. He used a little
incident with telling effect, when he
described a little dead Indian child
that he had seen carried over Mille
Lacs for burial, telling the Indians
that it made him sad when he thought
that that life might have been saved
had they lived where a good doctor
could be had.
Major McLaughlin then spoke
through the interpreter, assuring the
Indians that all their statements would
be the truth, and that any agreement
entered into would be carried out to
the letter by the government. It was
then that Wan-wee-ku-mich, the chief
of the tribe, rose to his feet, and with
impassioned eloquence recited the
white man's perfidy in his dealings
with the Indians. Four times had
met the government
officials in council, when the great
spirit had been called down to witness
that the officials spoke the truth, and
as many times the Indians had been
misled and cheated by the deceit of a
liar. He closed with the statement
that the Indians were losing faith in
the word of the white man. Major
McLaughlin replied with great tact
and when he had concluded Wau-wee
ku-mich rose and said that the major
had spoken the truth and the Indians
trusted him. Following this there was
nothing but good feeling, and when
the council adjourned to meet at 10
A. M. Wednesday morning all felt that
the settlement with the Indians was
not such an empty dream after all.
The government is especially fortu
nate in its choice of men to negotiate
the agreement. Major Michelet is
honest and straightforward and has
the confidence of the Indians, while
Major McLaughlin has thirty years of
successful diplomacy with the Indians
behind him. Major McLaughlin has
absolute power to bind the govern
ment to an agreement, and if the pres
ent attempt to adjudicate the difficul
ties is unsuccessful, it will be folly to
look for a settlement in the near
