paper will bo issued regularly twice

dians and of all others who live in
this country. Wo shall endeavor
to aid in the civilization and ad
vancement of the Indians, and will
triveour readers correct information
on all things pertaining to them and
their interests. These Indians are
making a very commendable- effort
to become civilized and we ask for
fhem fair treatment at the hands of
iDe white man please do not lay
all crimes committed in the Terri
loiy to the Indians, but find out
whether the offender is a white man
or fin Indian, and which party was
in the wrong. We aak for the lu
difiu fair treatment, nothing more.

Of late, be newspapers of (ho
country ha indulged in a good
deal of talkabout Indian parents
and their wilingnoss to have their
children edutilcd. Some have falsos
ly stated tha; they are op)osed t
having tlujir children sent awiuy
from the Apineies to school, and
that the ibreille taking of these is
the prime cauo of frontier troubles.
About oneyeago a call was made
Fifteen was ll nunibei allotted, but.
so great was lie pressure by the In
dians that pemission was obtained
to send twenlufive; and twenty-five
others will star in a. few days for
that school, miking fifty from this
Agency. The (ills made on other
Agencies have met with a like re
sponse, the inori influential men be
ing most anxioiU to have their chil
dren go. If it were true that these
children were taken by force, the In
dian whose child is thousands of
miles from him -uul in the hands of
the white man would be the last to
risk the consequences of war. The
fact that those boys and girls are,
for the most part, the children of the
head men of the variaus tribes, is
one of the immy good reasons 4wu
have for believing Indian civiliza
tion practicable.
Those who have returned to the
Agency from schools in the Stales
are industrious and efficient work
ers, doing whatever they ? m io-J
earn money and help them on mo
road to independence. They are al
so of great service to the Depart
ment and their people in that they
urge others of their tribe to take the
white man's road and thereby learn
to take care of themselves. Whilw
there is yet much to be done, yet the
progress in the past has been more
satisfactory than was anticipated,
and when we reflect that numbers
of our own race need civilizing, we
have little reason to apologize for
the Indian.
All the hauling of lumber, nails, 1
lime, brick, sand, etc., has been done
by Indians. Since the middle of
July M0,000 pounds of provisions
has been brought by Indian team
sters from Caldwell and Arkansas
City, and the supplies yet to he de
livered, 1,700,000 pounds, .will be
brought in the same way. Their
work is entirely satisfactory, being
quick and safe. The money till: -earned
is used with much more dis
cretion than many persons suppose,
biing applied for the purchase ff
wagons, harness, provisions and ujj.
or things of real value.
