But when it is changed to " Shinplaster

that these records have been written up
while the facts were known.
-Throughout all the country the cele

glorious and joyous. Even foreign nations

recognized by congratulatory editorials in

had festivals and celebrations in honor of
the day.
-General E. A. Carr, commanding the
Fifth cavalry, left Fort Laramie with his
regiment Juno 22d to join Crook. Five
companies left Camp Douglas, Salt Lake,
about the 1st of July to join Crook. This

fighting men and gives him a formidable

says the Democracy in defiance of all his
tory that the October elections decide the
campaign have practically abandoned the
October States to the Republicans. lie
says "nothing less than the general disin
tegration of parties can now give the prom
ire of Tilden's success "-but that disin
tegration lie regards as not impossible.
-Thursday night's news say Crook is 70
miles from the scene of Custer's fight. lie
is reinforced by 150 Snake Indians, and five
companies of infantry. Six companies are
ordered to him from Pope's command in
Kansas, under General Miles. Sheridan
will also send him eight companies of in
fantry under General Merritt from the Lake
region if needed. Sheridan telegraphs
Sherman he don't need volunteers yet, and
thinks the force sufficient. lie asks $200,
000 for the posts on the Yellowstone and
says they will settle the Sioux question.
-There are three things the government
should do simultaneously and instantly:
Reinforce Terry and Crook with every
available soldier in the United States;

-If 'twere done.
Then 'tware well done, if 'twcre done quickly.
-The war between Servia and Turkey i
actually begun. The Servians are fighting
against the despotism of Turkey, and i
they succeed there will probably be anoth

on the Montana newspapers, anyhow, for the amouni

Bro. Mills has, perhaps, learned the above
fact from experience. Ieretofore the Mad
isonian has been liberal in the matter ol
advertising. In the future we propose to
exclude from our columns puffs and "ads"
that are counted "dead-heads." Gratui

may expect to pay for them at the estab

That's right. A publishet had better
Stand all the growling of the dead-head ad

-When the movement against the hostile
Sioux was commenced, it was necessary
* 'first to find them and second to whip them,
It was also desired to move the columns in
such force and direction that the settle
ments should be protected and the Sioux
could not escape. Each of the expeditions
found them. The trouble was that their
strength in warriors or fighting qualities
was underestimated. Sitting Bull and
Crazy Horse were undoubtedly heavily
reinforced by agency Indians after the
expeditions moved. The plan was a good
one barring the miscalculation. Terry and
Crook should have 5,000 men each and
carry out the original plan of campaign.
"Remember Custer."
- -The N. Y. Y. Herald correspondent with
Crook relates in detail his fight on June
19th. Crook had 1,800 men in the fight.
He struck a Bioux camp of 2,500 (probably
the same one Custer anooateerd) on the
Rose Bud; fought the.t bftit hours; lost
ten killed and twenty wounded ; killed 100
Indians; pushed them close to the village ;
found them too strong to whip; camped on
the battle field and withdrew the next day
nearer to Fetterman. Crook's Crow allies
were dissatisfied with the fight and left him
after the battle. The Snakes fought well,
stay with him, and Washakie has sent to
Salt Lake for all his band. Crook acted
wisely, and will whip the Indians yet. lie

-All of you who will go to the Black
Hills, go, and good luck to you. IBut if
you will stop a moment to consider, think
of what is involved, The reports from the
Black Hills do not add up better than
Sweetwater, Salmon River, Peace River and
Cassiar. Not one Montanian in a hundred
who went on those stampedes bettered Ins
condition. "A rolling stone gathers no
moss." Besides, Deadwood and vicinity,
the only place struck that has paid enough
to furnish tobacco to the men there, has
absorbed all of the 8,000 or 10,000 men now
in the Hills and there they are with every
avenue of approach swarming with murder
ous Indians and so beleaguered in their
camps that prospecting is impossible. Pri
vatjon and perhaps starvation is not im
probable. After all, what has been found ?
A few good claims are reported; some
wages diggings and much valueless ground.
Bear and Yreka ; Blackfo.t and vicinity;
Pioneer and Yamhill ; Butte, Silver Bow,
German and French, have each group with
but a couple of hundred miners produced
more gold this season than is credibly re
ported from all the Black Hills with ten
thousand men mining and prospecting
there. Children cry for the moon, the
deadest of all things in their sight ; the far
off hills are always green; "'tis distance
lends enchantment to the view." Think it
all over again, and if you are doing well re
member the old adage andl be wise.
Surpassing all other themes in interest,
a_ ppealing to us directly and forcibly in its
aspects, influences and results; is that of
the Indian affails on our borders. It ap
peals to our sympathics in the men who
have died or are impcrrilled in protcctiJng
our homes ; to our honor in that a foe whop
has defeated our forces and whose victories
are characterized by inhuman slaueghcter and
mutilation shall be swiftly and terribly pun:
ished ; to our sense of right that 2; Ameri
can citizens our Territory shall be !irtect
ed with all hle frrec:: of the nation requ:· rel
for that purpose, and in all respects that
the Indian policy which has gone on from
i one degree of wrong, folly and fraud to, an
other, until it has become a natin l ihlfa
my, shall be overthrown.
The first great error was in rec, 'lizin
the proprietary right of Indians to the soil.
The right of conquest is a fixed principle
among nations, and the higher civilization
must rule. That were a bette: hoie::tcr
lauded one of swindling them out of em
pires of domain with a few bits worth of
glass beads and calico. It was this built
up the system of acknowledging their pro
prietary rights with its sequences of recog
nition of hostile organizations within the
United States' domain, treaties, establish.
ment of tribute agents, swindling, robbery,
violations, outrages, war and savagery.
We started wrong: treaties are in exist
ence ; where they have not been violently
broken the government must keep faith.
But no more treaties under any circunmstan
cos should be made. The Indians who
violated theirs and become hostile should
be whipped into perfect submission, and all
their treaties declared canceled. IIence
forth all Indians, except those whose tribes
have old treaties and have remained fri,,ld
ly and peaceable should be made amenable
to laws as individuals, and the chiefs and
headmen in both cases be made to deliver
up violators or the entire band be driven off
United States' domain. It should b- made
a capital offense to sell or give breech-load
ing guns or ammunition for the same to In
dians. Traders should be allowed,ouiy one
at each post where there is an agent, be di
rectly responsible to him and hold under
heavy bonds and confiscation if lie violates
any rules. This may appear a harsh system
to establish, but it is the only way to secure
peace and stop the butchery of American
The government of the Indians should be
entrusted to the War D)cpartment. The
Senate made a grave mistake when it re
jected the proposal of the Hlouse to make
this transfel. It would bi ing economy,
humane treatment, honesty, peace. The
army would not encourage inglorious war
of which it has to bear the brunt and bur
den. The system of accounts is perfect
and holds every disbursing agent strictly
accountable. Army offices are life tenures
dependent upon good behavior, and the
best blood, highest integrity, famnily station
and loftiest ambition, hold army officers to
strict rectitude of conduct. Their lives
rust out in garrison duty ; and dissipation,
the worst foe of the army in peace, destroys
many of the noblest, bravest and best.
Active duty and individual responsibilities
would keep them brighter and better.
They would acquire knowledge of the In
dians, of their habits, language, strength,
manners, hunting grounds and modes of
warfare-knowledge invaluable in case of
war. There would be no arming of hostile
Indians by army officers, nor by traders; ;
no swindling to provoke hostilities; no
room for crack-brained, slandering senti
__ . , . . . .r . . .
mentalists cast to charge Indian troubles
on frontiersmen. The management, from
the issue of blanketsto the battle struggle,
would be within the army that knows and
believes in itself and would have faith,
unity, and fidelity to itself and the goven
But while these paragraphs give an idea
of the wrongs existing and how they may
be and should be righted, an exigency is
upon us that no transfer can inow meet,and
no policy dispose of except one of war,until
every hostile Indiaa is subjugated to peace.
