Consideration of tho Indian appropriation llll will bu resumed by the lloiiso of Hepio scntattvcB and perhaps eoinploted to day. Thodcbato that this measure has called forth has attracted uimuil attention 1 throughout tho country, for thcro Is n gen ual tiding that thu cost of raring for tho Indians Is loo heavy, and that tho progress they are making toward self-malntcnanco Is tcdloiHy slow. Hut whllo It cannot be denied that large sums are evpendid to support able-bodied nidi and wonitn In Idleness, and whllo It serins bald that whlto labor should bo t.iMd for stirh a purpoe, It Is nevertheless a gratifying fact that thousands of Indians have learned to work, mid other thousands nio beginning to Incline lu tho samo direc tion. True, the prognss Is slow, but It Is a great gain that some real, substantial progress has been made. It Is next to I nposslblo for persons who lmvo little knowledge of tho red man to understand how difficult It is to luduco him to work. All tint thcro Is of naturo In him crlts out against work. His soul rises up In rebellion against what ho cstiems a deg radation. Labor Is as unnatural to him as lljlng Is to a fish. Ho has to bo recast, made over again, beforo ho becomes 1111 In dustrious, self-supporting citizen. Ills bir bailc prldo does not taUo offcujo at piupcr Um.l.ut It Arts III) when ho is Invited to make acquaintance Willi tho ax, tho plow, or the hoc. And tt there aro nations and tribes and scattered leiununts of tribes who havo been tnado anew and aro pretty good citizens, ll.o Lhoctawi, Chlckasaws, Scmlnolcs, decks, and Chcrokicsaro very reputablo ai.d well-ordcied communities, having 11 giod S)Stcm of local government, churches, schools, printing establishments, and all the appliances of advanced civilization. It lslellcvid that all tho tribes, Including tho vailous branches of tho Sioux and most of tho Coinauthis and Arnjmhocs, are steadily Improving. Ilie enormous expenditures that wero formcily tntnlled by Indian wars aro no longtr neccssllated. Only n few marauders now break away from control and go out on murderous expeditions. The leadcis of these should bo put to death at almost any cost. They slniitd away their day of giate long agei. JItrc) to them would bo hoirlblc cruelty to peaceful whites on tho southwestern border. There Is much forco In tho fact stated by 5Ir. Cannon, that Cougicss votes moio money tor tho maintenance of tho Indian than tho samo number of commou whlto laborers can tarn. Tho fault has been with tho management. AVohavo kept tho Indians In idleness without sulllclcut effort to teach them tn work and push them along toward Independence. Vi'o havo set apart great tracts of laud for them to roam over llko wild kings in loyal parks. Wo have, from Iho first, perpetrated tho tro mendous blunder of making treaties with these objects of pity as If they were Inde pendent notions. The public mind has btui deluded with romantic nonseue, and tho legislation of Congress has been redo lent of sloppy sentimentality. All this, it Is now seen, must como to mi end. It thcro Is to be any future for tho Indian, It must And him a self-supporting citizen. To this end wo urge that liberal appro pilatlonsbu rnado for Indian schools, so that tho tblldrtn now growing up may ho taught bow to cam a living taught tho honor, dignity, and necessity 0 work. .Mr. Jlolinan Is In Hie wrong In his opposi tion to Inllcn sehoeds. To abandon them would to to give up all bopo for tho nlcilglnals. llioNniil CiuiHtrtictloii lllll. It Is fcaifd that tho naval construction bill agrttd to by the House committee will, by thellmo It reaches tho Statute, bo so loaded with Impiacttcable provisions as to make the work of building ships stilted to tho naval service an Impossibility. Wo rifer parth ularly to the provision which 1 elates to tho tests of steel to bu used : "To have a tensllo strength of 00,001 pounds, and an elongation of y"i per cent. In eight Inches." This Is practically pre scriptive, and, considering tho character of tho strain that will come upon tho ships' platis in actual service, is no test of their quality whatever. Tl.e modification of section seven is tin busluusllke aud every way obltctlonablc. Oilglually It icrjulred full aud completo plans and specifications, lu detail, prelimi nary to advertising for proposals for con stiuttlon. Under It, as It stood at first, 110 shipbuilder need bid la tho dark l'tlnted plans and specifications showing all the details of construction and specify- ' lug the kind and quality of matcilal to bo used w cro to be made public for tho Infor mation of bidders, manufacturers of ship building material, and others Interested, leaving 110 room for doubt, misunderstand ing, or favoritism. '1 he section as modified requhes tho dc paitmcnt to furnish outline plans of tho f-hlps lequlrcd, giving dimensions, water lines, body plan of hull, and such (icnoal s I educations ns aro required to determlno llie sUo aud powers of tho ships; and upon stub meager and unsatisfactory outline In vito pi oposols for construction, leaving tho full and tcmpleto detailed draftings to bo made by tho lowest bidder after signing tho tontii'tt. Hullders aio to bo luvlted to bid on oulllno plans nod specifications and llll out the details to suit themselves. No member of tho naval commltteo would think of having a house or even u Lain built In tilth a manner. 11.c revenue marine aud lighthouse boards havo their plans, specifications, ad veithcmtnt, Instructions for blddcis, form of bids, fonn of 1 ond with bid, form of bouds incu's oath, ceitlflcate of solvency, of boi I'untn and builders, blank forms of tontratt, blank forms of bond with con tiact, and nil necessary papcis printed in quarto pamphlet form showing all bld dcis 11IIK0 cxactlj what they will ho re quired to furnish, and leaving no opening for bargains after tbu contract Is signed. Sctllon seven should bo changed alto gcllur. Lit us have 110 mnru room to doubt, In any case, w hcther tho Secretary has a 1 ud bargain or n broktn contract. I.tt us havo tho dttulls by all means. Tun Xatio.nai. liiti'MiMiM does nut quisliou the motives of tho I'lcsldcut in vetoing tho bill to quiet tho title of settlers on II. u lies Moines ilvcr lands, but it Ins no doubt that Justlco lequlrcs tho passigo of that bill over tho veto. Thirty years ago tho title to tbeso Iowa lauds first bo tamo the subject of dispute. They Ho not far fiom the lies Moines ilvur, and am In thocountleaof Hamilton, Webster, Iloonc, ni.il Humboldt, 'lbcro nro '.1,000 acres involv id, the bonus nf u thousand families. Originally Iho lands weio entered In tho usual manner, under tho laws of tho United States piitalnlug to tho public lauds, Tl 1 a government gave tho title nud received tho inniuy Iheicfor. Afterwards n claim was ftt up that theso hinds wero a part of tho gov eminent subsidy to the Ilea .Moines lllvcr Ntvlgatlon Con j ui" but as thu Improve ment w a j uei ei 1 uui itiul, It Is now asserted tjnvfiliiy Lave hten forfelteil. Jh.csoJan.lii, nro now claimed by several different par ties, ono nf thtm being n Now Yorker named Litchfield, who claims about 40,000 aires. It Is tho duty of tho government to clear tho titles by which theso farms ate hild, and to standln tho breach against all claimants. Mil. rnciiEiiiiic DocntAM, In a com munication on tho Dlalr educational bill, printed In the National Hgpiulican yes terday tajs: Neither of tho tjreat political parties can af ford to let this educational bill fall, and, least or all, can tho treat Republican parly, tlio 1 nity nf Justice, liberty, and civilization, afTard to let It perish or bo postivncd to n ruoro Mo vement season. Iho liepubllcau party has tvvlco passed this measure. It died ou tho lllcs of a Hoiiso commlltco once, after laving there a jcar. It has now been postponed by n Houso committee. Should It bo defeated or killed by neglect n second tlmo tho re sponsibility will rest with the party that controls tho House. Kr.w men havo tilled so many offices or discharged tho duties theieof so faithfully as lleprcscntatlvc Michael Halm, of tho stcond Louisiana district, whoso sudden death was announced yesterday. Mr. ltahn deserved well of his loyal country men for his absoluto lldellty to tho Uulon caueo when thotldoof secession swept most of his friends and associates Into tho vortex of rebellion. 'Iho ltcpttbllcan party owes It to Itself to do Justleo to the memory of this stiong, brave man who stood by Its princi ples when weak men quailed and cowards foreswore their faith. Sevatoii Kenna'8 rtccnt very successful cffoit in argumentative oratory prompts a contemporary tg speak of him ns "quite tho most promising man of the day." Would not that description bo a nicer fit for tho distinguished representative who Is accused of having promised tho samo office to each of seven ambitious politicians residing In his district? An cillcer of tho navy, btlonglng, nf comic, lo one of tho wicked staff corps, suggests that the construction of ship rail ways across isthmuses, peninsulas, and capes would be n boon to tho lino officers, since theso gentlemen havo thus far met onlyrctcatid an.'?, dlastrous failures In their numcrortfuctiojpts to run their ships across 6Ut! . :s.
