Acting commissioner Upshaw, of the
Indian office, has issued the following
letter of instructions to agents upon the
various reservations, where tmder the
existing laws and treaty stipulations,
the allotment of lauds in severalty
may be made: The business of allotting
and patenting lands to Indians should
he pressed with Die utmost vigor. The
Indian is awakening to the importance
of individual ownership in soil, and
agents must foster and encourage this
feeling by all the means in their power.
The Indian asks for a "paper title" for
his land, aud with that in his posession
he has some guarantee that the land he
improves will not he taken from him.
The Indian must be impressed with Die
fact that if they desire to make their
stay on the reservation sure and stable
they must take up the lands and get a
regular title to them from the gyvern
ment. Mr. Upshaw said that to-day
many tribes are now as clamorous for
allotments and patents as they were
formerly tenacious of holding all the
lands in common.

entire gang and shoot every hell-spawn

But the chances are that they will be
sent to the Indian territory and kept
in clover for awhile until the damfool
philanthropists of the east work up the
sympathy dodge in their behalf, and
the country will be educated up to the
belief that they are victimsjof the white
man's aggression, and then thoy will be
petted and feted, and the d f philan
thropists will slobber hypocrital tears
over the wrongs of the poor Indians,
and finally congress will appropriate
forty thousand dollars of the people's
money to be disbursed by the hypo
crites aforesaid in transporting the
Indians back to their old scalping
ground with all the pomp and eclat
which accompanied the return of Chief
Joseph and his Nez Ferce murderers
