Ihe amount spent on Indian appro priations by the Dominion during the t fiscal year ending the 30th of June last s was $276,335, so that each redskin costs the country about $3 a yearP This 8 money is spent in various ways. Con- b siderable sums are scattered among them in the shape of presents, and the s cost of surveying and laying out re serves is also very heavy. In addition to this, 1330,000 is spent every year on the mounted police force in the north- b west, the chief aim and object of which s Is the suppression of the liquor traffic ti among the aborigines. Hence her 92, 000 Indians cost the Dominion $600,000 a year, equal to an outlay of $6 000,000 a year in the United States. ilesides n this, the Indian is favored in other mat ters, which favors add to the burdens of ii his white brother. For instance, he is exempted from the payment of tolls and taxes levied on the general commu nity for the construction of roads and bridges. No customs du ties are exacted upon the animals, furs or merchandise which he imports or exports. These abate ments- large in the aggregate-are vir- V tually money puyments on Indian ac- C count. The total Indian outlay in fact 1 does not fall short of $750,000 a year or $8 a head of the Indian population. The Indian legislation of the Dominion is t now based on the principle that the aborigines are to be ept in a condition of tutelage and treated as wards or chil dren of the State. Every effort has been made to lift the red man into a higher condition and to encourage him to as sume the duties and responsibilities of l full citizenship, but in vain His Maker evidently never intended him to become a citizen anywhere. In the Indian set tlements in Ontario, Quebec Nova Sco tia and Prince Ed ward Island, where the process of civilization has been indue triously applied to him, he will shoot and fish and sell baskets, but for work on his reservation he has no taste, and nothing on earth will or can induce him to take to it. In British Columbia and the northwest, where civilization isyeta novelty, he is just as much civilized as he is in the other provinces where every machination of philanthropy, including the Sunday school, has been brought to bear on his nature. Disheartened by their failure to make a citizen out of him, Dominion states men have these ten years past made him their idiot ward, cramming him with lollipops, and rigging him out "to kill" every year in the best of blankets, Brummagem rifles, and tin medals sup posed to have come direct from the Great Mother in Windsor Castle. In thus treating him, the Dominion has without doubt been honest, but a change of policy is imminent. The people who have vast obligations to meet for public works, immigration, etc.. cannot longer afford to supply the Indian with the bread of idleness, and furthermore his removal from the prairies of the northwest has become necessary in the interest of the speedy colonization of that region. The sixty thousand In dians in British Columbia and the north west must get further back and let the white man and the railway in, or else get out. Between pushing Lo further north and kicking him out altogether, there is no material difference, for he cannot live in the Arctic circle, and a glance at the map will show that the next remove will land him there. In a year or two at the outside this change of policy will be entered on, for already there are loud complaints that he is in the way. The construction of the Cana dian Pacific railway through the buffalo grounds on the Saskatchewan will top ple him into the front yard of the north pole, and what then? Will he consent like a decent idiot ward to die of frost bites and hunger, or will he make a final stuggple for existence in the last ditch? That s the Indian problem which Cana dian statesmen are now contemplating with something of a puzzled look. THE SPANIMUH SLAVE TRADE. The Manner in Which Chinese Coolies are Drought to Cuba-A Protest from the Chinese Emperor and a Possible War. By virtue of the treaty between Spain and China, made in 1873. an investiga ting committee of the most influential Chinese was recently sent to Cuba to in vestigate the manner in which the Chi nese immigrants were treated in Cuba. The commission made a long and thor ough investigation, visiting all the barra coons, plantations and desposdos, where the Chinese coolies were keptor worked. The result of these investigations. but recently published, shows that Spain is to this very day, carrying on a slave trade in coolies, in which almost all the atrocities of the old slave trade still prevail. By the treaty between China and Spain it was expressly stipulated that no Chinaman should be carried to Cuba except with his own consent. The Com missioners assert that in violation of this obligation the greater part of the Chinamen have been taken to Cuba by abduction or seduction, that before they were shipped they were treated as pris oners in the barracoons at Macao, and that they were even kept in solitary confinement. "Out of every ten China men," the report states, "eight or nine were taken to Cuba against their will." As a proof of a still lower depth of this Infamy, the Commissioners found in Cuba some twelve persons of official position and literary rank in the Chi nese Empire, who were condemned against their will to hard labor in the fields and menial service in houses in the rural districts. The report and the corroborative doc uments also prove that during the voy age-from China to Cuba the colonists were treated as slaves, and subjected to such cruelty that many, in despair, cast themselves into the sea. The pic ture of the misery and filth, in which they are huddled together like cattle and of the scantiness of the food doled out to them, makes one shudder. It is the opinion of the commissioners that one of every ten colonists dies on the passage. "As soon as the colonist reaches Cuba," the report goes on to state, "his services are sold at a far higher figure r, than the price of his transportation a the rate ruling between $400 and $1000. The salary paid to them is so insignificant that, relatively to the prices of the necessaries of life in Cuba and China, it is less than what the colonist would earn by any o class of labor in his native country. Witnesses testified that the colonists tA were forced to work on Sundays and holidays, and for a longer time than the 0 ten hours stipulated in the rules. When contracts expire, the Chinamen are ob- T liged to re-engage themselves under pain of being put to labor like convicts on the municipal or government works, and this outrage is repeated at the ex piration of their second contract. * * Suicides and violent deaths are pre-emi- I nently the results of this miserable ex istence. Of the 140,000 Chinamen who have landed in Cuba since 1847, not 60,000 survive. The treaty for voluntary emigration was made in 1864, and since that (late over 30,000 colonists have died in Cuba. When the commissioners met to study the case, the Chinese government in sisted, as a preliminary condition, that I Spain should, at her own expense, re store to their native country all the Chinamen of literary and official rank before referred to; and as Spain con sented to it, it was determined that this should be done. Then the Emperor's government pre sented a plan of settlement with Spain, by which it was stipulated that a Con sulate-General of China should be es tablished in Havana; that the emigra tion should be voluntary in fact; that it should be limited to such ports of the Empire as were open to foreign com merce; that the contracts should be made in Havana instead of in China, and in presence of the above mentioned Chinese consul. The Chi nese government also insisted that a higher rate of pay than what had pre viously ruled should be inserted in the contracts; that the term of service be be reduced; that at the expiration of the term of service the colonists should be allowed to remain in Cuba, if they wished to do so, without the obligation of re-engaging their services or of work ing on public works, the Chinamen giv - ing proper security for their good be havior, and that the persons who hired them should deposit at the consulate the price of their return passage to China; and lastly, further measures of protection were demanded from Spain, which should be valid and subject to the approval of the government of Pekin. After many conferences and plans proposed, no satisfactory arrangements seem to have been arrived at. he Chi neoeo guvernment exacts, as a proof of Spain s good faith, that she restores to their country thousands of Chinamen whose first contract has expired., Which - Spain declined to do. The appointment of a new Spanish c Minister to China has tended to delay the negotiations. The practical result 1 appears to be a rupture between the two governments. Should such be the case, it is not impossible that Spain, abusing her naval strength, may annoy the com s paratively defenseless inhabitants of the coasts of China; but the Asiatic p slave trade can never be revived, and this last Spanish atrocity will be for e ever ended. g Buaurr's FLAvounie EXTRACTs.-The supers n o,-iiy of these extracts eonststs in their perfect purity and great strength.
