THE RED RACE. .
visit with a IMoneer Dakotan and lilt) Indian Wife A Woman of Fdu ration, Kays alottpr to The Minneapolis Jour nal: The clay mid nifjht I passed with Mr. Van Motor, who resides on tlio tsioux reservation. Ho is married to nn Indian woman of moro than ordina ry intelligence, wlulo lie himself is ono of tbo oldest settlors in Dakota, and well posted on tlio Indian question. Van was at one timo ilio owner of the entiro town silo wliero Vermillion now stnml. Ho enmo to Dakota when the population did not number live hundred whites and tlio Sioux held full and com lileto sway. His wife was educated at ono of tlio missions, and for several years taught tho young Indian how to shoot not tho bow and arrow, nor tho Winchester, but in educational mat ters. I!e litis raised thrco daughters and llireo sons, and I must say his family Is I tio only one I have thus far met with that follows tho ways and manners of Hie whites. Tlio kitchen was the pink uf perfection in regard to neatness and cleanliness, and tho general surround ings gave tlio log hut tlio nppearanco of n whito pioneer's home. Wo would talk over tho Dawes bill and the Indian question. I saw beforo tho conversation had progressed very far that not only Mr. Van Motcr but his wife were thoroughly conversant with I ho features of tho Dawes bill as first framed and presented to congress, they favored its passage. "I toll you tho only practical and effectual way of im proving tho intellectual condition of tlio Indians Is to bring them into closer contact with tho whites," spoke up Mrs. Van Meter, who was writing a letter to her son n student in a Fhila leljihin college 'I havo obsorvod," ho continued, "ono verv important :Uing amongst my people that has al ways left a very strong Impression on my mi ml, anil mado mo, an earnest advocate of any measure that forces tho Indian to como into closer relations with tho whites. Tlio Indians ore apt imitators, and if tlio Dawes bill should pass,' and they are required to take land in severalty, they would bo continually mixed with tho whito settlers, and 1 renturo to predict that insido of livo rears 75 per cent, would huvo discard sd tho blanket and donned the habili ments of tlio Americans. Our girls would also dress in tho civilized mode, tnil each generation would improve. My conclusions nro drawn from prac tical observations. Why, look at Chief (lump.

Look at him now! lair cut short, a navy-blue suit, slouch tint, shirt, and tho only thing that re mains of his former costume nro tho moccasin. What has causod this? IVhy his trip to Washington, and being brought into constant contact with tho wl ' o employes at tho agoncy. Th s ami nothing else. "My wife." said Van, 'hns rccieved letter from ono of my sons, who has ust returned from England. We have two bo) a uUuinliug college In Philadel phia, and when tho qiioon's jubilee took place they asked our permission to visit ;hat country. Tho college authorities wishod to send a class of educated In f i an boys to tlio celebration for tho purpose of advertising the institution, itid selected our sons. The trip afford 3d them an excellent opportunity to witness tlio affair. My youngest sou relates his experience from tho day of leaving Philadelphia up to tho date of his return. At th s juncture Mrs. Van Meter handed your roving correspondent the the letter for inspection, and it was an excellent specimen of penmanship, and spoke well for a boy of 15 years, who only six years ago roamed over the boundless prairie. "It is one of tho most difficult mat ters to secure the consont of parents to allow their children to bo sent away to school. An Indian hns an idea," snid Mrs. Van Meter, that the eastern country is unhealthy their children will become sick and die. It is tven Terr hard to induce them to send the children to tho agency school, and it took a great deal of urging even on my part to make tip a class. My two boys were first sent to the school at Carlisle. Ta.. but limy did not like the institution. They complained of the poor victuals and other items, and one act ually ran away and came home. The Philadelphia school they speak well of. and. from the report are making ex cellent progress." Do you think the educated Indians and half-breeds will work for the Dawca bill or any other measure to open np this vast domalnr "If they have the interest and future prosperity of their people at heart they can not do otherwise. The longer the reserva tion Is closed the ger It will take to advance thorn to the standard which oontaot with your pooplo is bound to bring about I heard a few educated half-broods speak against opening the rosorve, but only from a merceuary object. I think with such a man as Bishop Whipple of Minnesota, as ono of tlio commissioners to sec nro tho naruos. over two-thirds of the Indian adults would sign the treaty, The In dians have the greatost faith in this man and consider him a socond Father Do Suiot. I know my sons who will graduato noxt fall would work hard to bring about this result, and I can not see how the bill can be dofcatod if hon est commissioners of Bishop Whipple1! stamp are selected." . What Is It? The farmer residents south of Vln conncs are greatly excited over a itrango wild animal that has frequent ly been soen in the swampy region in that vicinity, and it is thought to bo a panther. The Vincennes Commercial, speaking of the terror tho animal has created, says that It roams about tho swamps betweon tho Evansvillo and Tcrro Ilauto railway and tho Evans ville wagon road, and at times ven tures out in tho fields and into tho highways. It has boon seen frequent ly by parties of well-known veracity and whose judgmont does not mislead them, so that there remains r.o doubt of the fact that tho animal has taken up its abode within two and one-holf miles of tho city. It makes frequent devastating raids upon tho farmers' pigs, lambs, geoso, and etc It utters a peculiar, loud and terrifying scream, which so closoly rcsombles tho scream of an affrighted woman, or somo one in distress, that it has frequently led persons to hasten into tho midst of the junglo in tho swamps thinking that somo awful murder wos being committed. On reaching the spot from which the scream came, it seemed to be moving farther into the dense underbrush of tho swamp. Hours have boon spout in a futilo attempt to rescuo the supposed victim of a terrible crime. Some times tho rescuing party have rushed unexpectedly upon tho ferocious-look ing animal, which would change its scream to a doop guttei at growl or a piercing howl. It is needless to say that in every instanco the rescuers have boat as hasty a retreat as tho brier-grown bramblos would allow. In no case has tho animal ever attacked anyone, but at once boldly assumes the .defensive when approached. It offers savage resistance when molest ed, but quietly retires to its lair when the attuck has boon . withdrawn. Hunters have endeavored to induce their dogs to follow the animal's trail, but only in a few instances could they be induced to give chase. A fow times the dogs have attacked the beast, but have been knocked back and returned, whiuing to their masters, couiplotoly whipped. A large crowd of young farmers are making tip a hunting par ty, and expect to make a thorough search, with dogs 'and guns, through the woods which it is known to fro quent, in hopes of killing the nnimal, which has become a terror to ciiiiuiod nnd au annoyauce to the farmers.

A Washington loiter cays: Standing 111 one of the hotel lobbies lbs other duy was a group of well-known men shout towu, evidently much Interested In something on the street. Ouo of them with a pencil and paper was keeping a tally, while two others, one a tall man with a silk hat and the other a amall, atout, excitable Individual, were calling out number! ami occasionally' asking aomo ipics tlona about tho core. "That's ono more," aald tho httlo niau, de cidedly, aa an old colored man with a heavy bundle under his arm came shambling down street "And two more," be added as two chocolate colored school-girls turned the cor ner. "And there la two moro for me," aald the tail one, aa Congressman Wilson, of We at Vir ginia, and a friend came In sight. "Two more forme," waa the response, drawn jut evidently by a couple of colored newsboys, Mid then the wbolo crowd began to get nearer tho scorer and show aomo signs of cxclte mcii t. 'You have only Ave more to go," aald he to tho tallmau, while the other continued to look anxiously up and down street. "And I gucas you will get there now," he added, aa a crowd of Virginia politicians came out of an adjolu Ing liar-room. "Seven of them," aald tho tall man. "That settles It, and tb;y all went off together to keep up their spirits at tho Httlo man's ex pense. The better they had made was one which seemed to olTer pretty (alrconditlons on either aide, when Washington's whito wluter popu lation ia out of tho city between congressional sessions. The amall man bad aald that there were moro colored thun white people In the streets, and the other had doubted It. Tho cen sus tables could not Imvo settled the question satisfactorily, so they agreed to each count bis color aa they passed along tho streets, the one having a bundl ed first to bo regarded as the winner. The hundred whito persons pass ed the window tlrst, and so fur aa that tost waa concerned showed that the proportion ot tlio streeta wero about SJ to 100 In favor of the whites. For the summer months that proportion would sometimes seem too small; though, ac cording to tho census, the colored population Is about one-third the wholo number of resi dent. The one-third, however, can spread all over tbo city when It makes up Its mind to do it. A colored procession, witli a colored brass band and a colored drum-mnjor can bring out ao many colored people that we grow absolutely lonely for the sight of a white fuce. Emancipation day, which is particular ly and peculiarly the property of tho blacks, la celebrated by an outpouring which absolutely innkia Pennsylvania avenue Impassible for wbllo people. Crowds as dense as any of those that line Chestnut street when a big proces sion pa?sos, are made up exclusively of blacks, and with Ilia black procession, black nymphs, black goddessosof liberie, and black queens of beauty, It la a day ccrlulnly on which Wnsh lugtou is do place for a white man. A curloua tiling nhout the wen 1 thy colored men lu tho Distr.ct (and there are plenty of them) la that they all have made their1 money out of real estate by tho simple process of holding on, probably the wealthiest of them Is John F. Cook, tho collector of taxes, who is a prominent man In their aristocratic church, lie bought a big lot at Ibo corner of Sixteenth and K streets when It waa worth ouly a few cents a square foot.and now holds it at a price that would be a small fortune. On each of the other three corners are inagiilllcoiitjrcsl denccs, and K street coutcrs its display Just around him. Nearly every other house In tho block is owned or rented by some man of national reputation. Cook's own little house makes such a contrast that the other residents ought to pay him lor keeping It there. It Is clean, conspicuously modest, set away back wl.b Ha front on a line which waa evidently oiivt u ed aa a short cut across the corner, and puiutod as tihlto as the best house in a coun try village. A meat many wealthy men have tried to buy It from him but it ia Increasing lu value every day, and be has no disposition to sell. Nevertheless, bis family aro not on visiting terms with thulr neighbors. Other corners on Massachusetts avenue ana (he vicinity of Dupont circle are owned and occupied by colored men who havo become wealthy In the same way. They make enough to live on and pay their taxes, and the men tion of an ordinary price for their property has no effect on them. They have a atrongcr belief in the future of real estate than the whites, and aa a matter of fact are partly re sponsible for the high figures that eligible property here has reached. They rarely sell to make a prolit, like the ordinary white spec ulator, for they know the difficulty of buying aain, and they have, besides, a constant fear that the whltea are too smart for them if they get into the market. Their fortune Is staked on the one deal, and they make their money in it or not at all. Tho ground whore Senator I'alnior's brown stone residence ia situated was bought at a figure which Illustrates the point It was originally owned by au Illiterate old darky named Green, who waa in the undertaking business, and waa famous for a sign In bia front yard which, without point or punctua tion, read: "A Urcen undertaker.

Somebodv offered fit) for It, anil then he raised his llgufe to IA While the dicker waa going on he died into state and the white real estate agents managed to bring about an auction anle of the property. Nobody except those in the ring made any bids, aud it was finally knocked down at about $3. This characteristic fear of being overreach ed came out very strongly, the other night, la their fashionable rVeabyterlan congregation, much to the distrust nf Mr. Wash McLean. Mr. McLean had taught a piece of property at the corner of Fifteenth and I streets, Im mediately in front of their church, tor the purpose of putting up a big hotel. The neighborhood is Just aulted to- tbat project Mcl'berson square la on tlio Fifteenth atreet side. Mr. McLean's own bouse and Chamber lain's famous restaurant are on the oppnalte corners, and the realdencea of Senator Chand ler, John W.

Nons of the people would bave been unwilling; to exchange the colored church for a hotel, and Mr. McLean, In order to get the necessary depth, made a big offer for the church pro perty. The flnauclal men of the congregation were rather attracted by bia figures, ."0,000 for a apot about forty by seventy-five feet but when the congregation came to consider It nothing could be done. They were convinced tbat tiie price waa awav down, that Mr. ilc Lf anVaa gnlng to make money out of It; and they were ratbe.- auspicious that their financi er were the victims of his smooth talk.

THE DROP IN QUININE. Cheaper to Druuulsta but No Less to Consumers. Quinine was the subject of a conversation In one of the principal down-town drug storet yesterday, says The IndlannjioUt Journa', In tho course of wblcb a reporter asked the com pounder ot medicines if there bas been any decrease in the uso or the druir In Indianap olis In lata years. Well, sir," said the pill makcr. "I think there lias undoubtedly been a decrease of Its use for malarial troublca, because there bai been a decrease of malaria, but at the same time there has been a constantly widonlng use of quinine in other diseases, and this, coupled with an Increasing population, bas probably kept the consumption up to its old standard. The relative use Is probably less. There Is less quinine uscd lu Indiana now than in Con necticut." "How do you account for ths decrease ol malaria t" "There aro various theories for that, such ai drainage of the country and more healthful food aud clothing for the people. My own be lief Is that it Is due to an entirely different cause. During the 'alger1 times all druggists bave specifics of a dozen kinds constantly on band, and usually a prescription or two ol their own. Ten or twolvo years ago a sort ol rage for pills for miliaria affections set In, and, among others Tom Barry roncocted a pill tha I was death to fever and chills. It was made of capsicum, Iron, and chluoldine " 'What's that I" "Chlnoldlne f Why, It's what's left after all the quinine and other alkaloids have been ex tracted from cinchona bark. The liquid It boiled down aud made into sticks like licorice. But, as I was saving these pills wore labeled A lien's Red Tonic Tills, and put on the mar ket The first year they aold about $10,000 worth, and put It in printer' Ink. Tho scheme looked well. They had double-cnder boxes, with tho tonic in one end and compound ca thartics liijthe other. The second year they put about f:i5,000 lu luk, and took In 810!), 000. Then they thought they had atruck a bonanza, and went in big, but the next year the trade fell flat, and nover lias amounted to anything since. Tha truth is that there bas been very little trouble from malaria since then, and 1 have no doubt those pills ran It out of the country. "Very like; but why Is it tbat quinine costs at retail Just as much as ever, notwithstand ing t he wholesale price is reduced I" "There are two reasons, lu tho first place, It doesn't. You get a dozen two grain cap sules for 15 cents now, and you usod to pay 80 centa for twenty-four grains ot quinine. In tbo second place, the cost of tbo capsules and the troublo of filling them la something of Importance to the druggist. Besides, no one wants more than a dozen capsules for 15 cents. A sick man would think medicine of no use If he could get a whole drug store for a dime. Human nature bat alwava been tbat way. Don't you remember that old duck In the Mills who wouldn't bathe in the Jordan when the prophet told lilm to, just because It was ( no netter man me rivers in nis own country r "What is quinine worth at wholesale!" "It ranees now from 83 to 43 cents per ounce, according; to the quantity purchased that is, for the American article. The tier man quinine Is a little cheaper." "Do you think It will go tin again I" "No. Quinine will never bring fl an ounce again In this country, though there are people who hug the delusion just as there were some unfortunates who held their wheat during the steady decline from war prices. They say there' is a man over in Dacatur who bought five hundred ounces of quinine when It drop ped from ti 50 to ti 35. When It struck f ho took five- hundred more. At f 1 50 he took one thousand additional, and at f 1 still anoth er thousand. He bas It yet, aud I very much fear he will lose money on It." "What Is the basis of your assurance In tblt matter!" "The nature of things. There Is nothing precarious about the supply as there used to he. In old times the cinchona bark all camt from the South American forests. Men used to go Into the country, get on some hiU point, and mark down the' patches of cinchona with field-glasses, which was easily done on account of the color of the foliage. Forces of men were taken to these points, and evcrv tree was cut down and stripped of bark. The high price of the article, aud the rapid extermina tion of the trees caused an effort to be made to transplant and also to raise the tree from the seed in other localities. The result It that now there are thousands of acres ot cinchona for ests In Borneo, Sumatra, Java, Ceylon, and some, other places. There Is a possibility of Injury by evclones, hut thev would have to be of great extent to affect the market" "But am not these trees destroyed to obtain the hark I" "Not at all. When a tree Is five or six In ches through thev begin using It by stripping off the bark one-third around ths tree. Tblt atrip la covered with gum and bandages and bcals over. The next year a second atrip la removed and the exposed wood la treated In the aame way. The third year the remaining strip is taken. The fourth year the new bark on tbe first strip Is ready for use, and la taken off. So tbo tree la continually producing withont any material Injury to Itself. But ths greatest advantage of cultivation la tbe In creased product 'From tbe wild treea ths bark yields only about 2 per cent of alkaloids. Tbe first stripping from tbe cultivated treea vlelds alwavs .i per cent, and sometimes at high at 5. The second strlpplngs yield fiora 10 to 13 percent Tbey are on the second etrlpplngs now, and there It tome curi osity to know what tha third stripping will do. ir tbey keep on at tbls rata tbe bark will be solid quinine by the close of tbe century."
