This meeting was called merely to iuar state
ment* of missionaries and workers in the eau?e
of Use amelioration of the condition of tlie In
dians, utiil not for any action; the animal meet
ing lor action being fixed lor to-morrow. A
preliminary meeting was held la<t ni^ht, hut
t.ot much was done. Many spectators. aiU'>n$
vi hem were se veral latli.s, w re pr.sent; al-o a
deb gate fiom each of the civilised tribe* o? tin'
Indian Territory.
The meeting was opened with prayer by
l:>hop Whipple, after which the chairman
stati .1 that it gave him gn at pleasure to wel
come the members of tlie commission and so
mauv of the dch gates. He congratulati'd tin tu
on what ha?l been accomplished the past year m
the mode of governing the Imliatis. The repre
sentative* of the different societies ami organi
7atiein? had been invited, in order that they
might hear the different opinion*, ami hare an
intei change of ideas, ami he thought lour years
longerdurationof the same policy would perfect
a system of government sii|?erior to any ever
it<'opted. He asked the hearty co-operation of
h'l to aid iu the good work. One thing 01 great
importance was that the different churches
should exercise the greatest care in selecting
the i>roj>er j>erwns to tccotuinend a-* agents. It
was a matter of -oim- regret that this had to
M me extent been overlooked. and t!iafc
hid been sent out to the Indian country. All
sulMiidinatesemployed to aid tlie missionaries
a id agents should be tlie be?t men thej could
p ek, moiallv.
Mr. Walsh called the attention of the chairman
tf- one important lact, that their agents and
u wsiouaries w ere de'feated In tlieir purisms by
u ho are allowed to go among tlie Indian*.
The chairman said all these points would
doabtless be discussed b> the delegates present.
It was the object of all" to rid the Indians of
oppression, and to obtain such legislation ns will
sceure them their lands ami right* generally.
Mr. Edward Smith, secretary to the American
missionary association in Minnesota, gave an
interesting account of the
Is the Northwest. The agency at Snpcrior
was ia a prosperous condition. The agency in
Minnesota was a much more difficult agency to
manage. 10J houses had i?een erected with rive
rooms each, and the work had in-en mainly done
bv the Indians. Imlians sawed the lumber ami
did all the lal?or. Theli success as faimers was
becoming more and more apparent every year.
No one doubts the feasibility of civilixlug t'jt*
ptople ill Minnesota, and it had got to be a fact
that it was cheaper to educate ami lift them out
ot barbarism than to exterminate them by war
t'arc, or to keep tin m In the proper subjoction
l.j this means. He thought that only one gen
eration was necessary to keep them in school to
ri?l the state of bar bar toss.
Bishop Whipple was called npon, and sael
that he could bear witness to the faithful man
lif r in which the agent In his state had worked
for the amelioration of the condition of the
Ir.dians. He alluded to the
for the punishment of crime, especially when
j?eri>etraU'd upon the Indians. In fact, there
seemed to lie no law in that state, ami the con
sequence was that the effect was very demor
alizing. lie stated that it was the opinion of
General Sheridan that if a just ami proper course
was pursued by the government towards the
Indians more would be accomplished than by
anv other wav.
Mr. Edward Smith remarked that in h:s
agencv most of the Indians could be employed
to labor if there were any money appropriate!I
bv the government to pav them.
Rev. Father I>eshone, of the Catholic chnrch.
from New York, called the attention of the
board to the fact that that church had no a?en
cie* anion? the Osages, Potowatomies, and the
Indians of New Mexico, who were
The chtlTch lnd but little mcan?. ami none
from the general government; but, so far a? he
had anv knowledge, tlie Indians who had been
educated iu the Catholic church made favor, ible
progress in tlie various art* of civilisation.
The chairman stated that Father De?hone had
been connect- d w itli the mission but a >rt
time, and had not fully Informed himself of the
extent of li e workings of the commission.
Kev. l?r. Nicholson. reprein>ntiiig the Indians
ni the central sni?erinleiideney. made oitemi 'd
remarks in relation totho condition of the In
diana there, more particularly with respect to
the manner of teaching them. He stated tha*
the readiness of the youth to acquire the various
secular nnd religions branches of learn'ng \va?
.? subject of Mirpnsu to the teachers. He spone
of the dilliculties eapericnced by reason of th<
remoteness of ihe agencies from civilisation,
ami consequent sniftering from want ot supplies.
He cited the difficulty experienced from inrom
latent interpreters, who were not always honest
and corscienUo?s men. They are troubled, tiw.
by ititriiders ami a moan class of w hite men who
no among them as Indians and adapt their
are against a thorough system of education
;? mong.lbem, and the effort had been made bv
the mi?sion to secure the services of such mis
sionaries :md teacher* Hs would be willing to go
with the tril>es 111 their wanderings. He cited
an instance where such ? man ha?l l?eeneiu
ployed with the most beticlieiixl results. An?:n
eoiu aging imlleation of the efleets of education
was the sanctity of marriage aamug them,
which Is being more observed every year. It
had been observed that a tendency to sto^k
raising hail a mo-t benettcial influence wiMi :he
indians, and was the best proof that they ire
not retrograding in the essentials of en iiizaiion
and education.
Friend Samnel .Tanner. of Virginia, gave an
interesting account of his Held of ope rations,
which Is in Northern Nebraska among tlii
tribes living m the head and tributaries of the
Muwouri; their progress iu agriculture and tjie

bad been neglect on the part of the physician to
the |?or for the liftu di*t-let, In not giving the
proper attention to these poor people, nor hi re
jsirting the casi - to the boaid, as it washisduty
to do. The health officer read a sworn st ate
ment from .lere. Carter, in which it is stated
that the physician complained of had been ap
plied to by Carter to vaccinate his children
lame time" since, and no response was m ule;
that alterWards. when bis children were taken

physician and Him him tliat he was unable to
employ a physician, having no means to pav,
and rcone*tied him to reuder liiui the neoossarv
iiietlical si'rviee. and was told that it could n?>t
be granted without payment in advance. After
some debate, in which* the members expressed
themselves very freely, the matter was referred
to the health officer to obtain from the phvsici^n
bis version or the matter before further action
by the board.
Dr. Verdi submittetl a report in which he
states that the small-|H>x during the past week
has decreased, that many cases re|M>rtesl to the
board hnd n|?or. inveatigation been fonml to t>e
false alarms; that the complaint maile alniiit the
MiKi'l-pox ambulance being a.iowud to stop

streets, was a scare, as he had fouud the aiubu
lanee to he tin- one Just t idshed for the boanl
whi. ii bad never bctn in use, and was on its
wav to the office for inspection: that tho M-rrt.'
meiit that Airs. Parti idge had died unattended
was untrn'-, as he had received a letter from
her son, Jlr. John A. Partridge, wherein he
eomplhuents the l>oard and its agents highly for
their attention and kindness in the case; that he
had t xaniiiH<l into the case rc\>ortcd by l>r.
<|ox an?l referred to him, to the effect that. Mr.
IZarly bad died of the disease ami no ins|M*<'tiun
had been made.no disini'ectants us<Hl,an<l no

when the inspector took charge of the bodv and
piai.ted a flag, which had not been removed
until alter the premises had been thoroughly
disinfected; that he had also Investigated the

and had found that Mr. Price himself had left
an order requesting that his betkliiig. clothing
and carpets l>e removed, a? he wished to eleau
bus premises and liavc the tlag taken down.
Mr. Price states that he was treated in ac.tre
tnl manner, and ha> nothing to complain of.
The report ailudes to the tendency of people to
become panic stricken duiingthe prevalem-e of
epidemics which o<-<'iuioiis many rumors dev??id
of truth. The heaitli officer states that after
having given his uislividtHl attention to the re
lief of tbo unfortunate victims to this disi asp
under a great variety of circunvtances, lie h is
to report tbat the humane work in wliicn they
are engaged Is done with proniiitness, fideHIV
and delicacy. He rejiorts the dwellings and
buildings occupied by the employe* attached to
the small-pox hospital, &c., in good conillti<'ii;
and that all articles removed on account of in
fection arc properly fumigated disinfected and
kept under the care of >Ir. Sprague, to be re
