city of wealth, culture and refinement, probably a
short letter from your old Territory associate will
bo acceptable : Wo wore pleased to have with

hereafter brightened with tho beaming presence
of this young lady. After the nnrriago thoy oon

accompanying them to Caldwell. Here we woro
made glad by meeting another old Territory friend,
Wm. T. Darlington, who kindly returned with us
to the "Canawl City." Ho letnalned a few days
here, and then left with tho excursion p'irty for
Minneapolis, Minn., taking with him, no doubt
pleasant recollections of Arkansas City and the

Last week tho Travotor briefly mentioned tho
visit of .Tamos Rubens, an ordained minister of tho
Nez Rerco tribe, to his people south or Arkansas
City, and his hope that congress., had at last recog
nized tho Justness of tho Nez Porcos' claim for re
moval to a inoro hoalthful location, and provided
for their transportation. Slnco thon wo havo look
ed ovor tho sundry appropriation bill Introduced
by the house, as returned wlthsouato amendments,
and (hid tho following paragraph : "For support
and civilization or Joseph's band or Nez Perce In
dians In tho Indian Territory, S20,0()0, aud of
this amount a sum not exceeding S1025 may bo
paid under tho direction of tho secrotary of tho
interior, to James Rubens, for expenses Incurred
by him In taking thirty three Nez I'erco Indians
from the Indian Territory to Jdaho, and tho secre
tary of the Interior Is authorized to expend the bal
ance of this appropriation for tho Nez i'erco In
dians now In the Indian Toirltory to somo othor
location I f he deems It propor so to do, and for their
support at such new location." At this tlmo wo
doom this question of sufficient Importance to do
vote a largo part or our space to a short history ol
those Indians and their fortunes since moving Into
tho Indhui Territory : Chief Joseph's band, at tho
time ot their surrender to Hon. Allies, numbered
about 050 scatcely onefourlh or tho entire tribe.
They entered Into war against tho government only
as an act of self-defense, or for maintaining prop
erty rights. Thoy i of used to sign tho treaty of
1808, which look from them tho laud to which
they were so greatly attached, and cllod as a reason
therofor that tho government had heretofore failed
to llvo up to Its treaty stipulations that tho cov
enants of a treaty were "a band of steel to tho hi
dlans but a mero rope of sand to the whlto man."
Tlih action iesulted In a war between tho Indians
and the government, which of eourso resulted in
defeat to tho former. Wo can hardly call It defeat,
howovor, for they surrendered with tho understand
ing that they were to bo returned to Idaho. Rut
thoro Is where tho Injustice to these Indians com
menced. Simply as prisoners of war thoy were
transferred, first to Foit Leavenworth and located
on tho low bottom land of the Missouri river, thou
to tho Indian Territory. From tho llrst Chief
Joseph and his band h'tvo scon that tholr stipula
tions with tho govornmjnt woro to bo ignored, as
had been tho caso with othor tribes, aud that thoy
must depend upon outside lulluonco for help. To
this ond Rovs. Fleming and Wilson, ot this city,
labored until thoy soauod tho united elforts of tho
Presbyterian general assembly on tholr behalf.
This influential body brought tho matter before tho
government In such a light as to command recog
nition, and to this agenoy, aud tho labors of those
gentlemen, are tho NezPercos principally Indebted
for tho tardy Justice dono them . That It Is a sub
ject worthy tho attention of all humane people, wo
need only cilo a few undisputed facts. Out of I ho
1050 souls that crossed tho Lolo trail In June, 1 877,
'there Tiow're'ma In hut.270 filclcneas, as a result of
climatic changes, being tho principal agont In this
worlcof declmlnatlon. Of all the children born
Into this trloo slnco tholr pet'Ionicut south of us,
only three havo lived to the ago of twoyoarj. This
applies to children bom later than one year after
the settlement of the parents In tho Territory.
Another striking, yet no less true, result ot their
lire In this climate Is the fact that In a large ma
jority of Instances the children are srtll-b.un and
born from ono to two months Ueforo maturity.
Add to this tho continual decrease among the agMl
by death, and we are not surprised at the rapid
extinction of ihls race. Leaving aside all sonsa
tlonal lacis of tuo sutto:iatlvo goodness of "poot
Lo," oran.v of his relatives, pine Justice and hu
manity long auo demanded that Chlel Joseph's
band bo returned to Idaho, where the government
promised to send them at tho tlmoof tholr surrend
er. These Indians are of a higher grade than
many others. They aro bettor educated, aro moro
more anxlo.is to become citizens ot the United
States, and In a country favorable to their healtl
will soon bo beyond tho common red man. Ono
halfof Chief Jo-eph's band aro ftdly accepted
members of the Presbyterian chinch. Another
Item In favor of their removal Is that of economy
lo the government. In Idaho these Indians arc
self-supporting, never accepting any rations from
tho government, while hero they a-o pensioners
upon the government, and their passionate doslro
to bo united with their tribe makes It well nlwh im
possible to Inleiest them In any schomo of solf
Improvoment. The main body of tho trlbo In Ida
ho, iiunibfrtng about 2,500, sav thoy will tako caro
of Joseph's band that they will cost tho govern
ment no more If they are only allowed to return to
tho clear mountain air of their natural homo. We
are glad congress has at last resolved to right the
wrongi of these Indians, aud this action will bo in
dorsed by eveiylovor of Justice. Thoy will prob
ably remain here during tho summer until thoy
havo gathered their crops, but It looks now as
though th fall months will see them Joyfully re
turning to their mountain haunts, where tho his
toric Ju-eph and his baud can ond tholr daytt In
