starving In it would be more consistent with Christian Miles he had stated in a public interview that the Indiana were driven to revolt or rebellion by and it in his an inexplicable crime on tho pan ct the to stand silently by and do nothing except furnish arms to the Tue nusulltiea into which the IndlaoH in the northwest were being started would result not merely In de atruction of the lives of many Indians but of the livos nf tUautmtids of Ameri ican and hundreds of American That condition of things had been brought about by a par or dishonest policy HB not which He aii hot know whas ttio purposi of tho Indian administration It wai doubtless But when he had askei Miles whether tomething could no bsdoie to prevent hostilities the gener als answer was that ha feared that it wa too Whether it was too lato or not he was glad that his skirts were clear o any of the blood that would be shei growing out of a policy of in Iqulty and crime toward the The policy had been pursued to

much the feeling pre valent among Voorhecs repelled the feeble at tempt at a sneer on the part of Dawen in saying that he was clad that he Yoorheesj had found out the cause ot the outbreak of the Indians of the But the senator from Massa chusetts know it just as well aa he for Miles had told and had told the public that the Indians had been made hostile and preferred to die fighting rather than to die of He did not know whose fault it was that the In dians were not It might be the fault of or it might be the fault of dishonest The Indians were Rrmsdwith Winchflster rifles and were in a state of starvation and They could center into the field flghtlna and with the advantage of knowledge of the they could fight of the best American troops on terms of equali He asked the senator from Massa chusetts to state whether those Indians had enough to eat whether Miles right or and whather the In diimsurere being starved Into bellger Diwes said that he had had an in terview with Miles and that he had heard for the first that the Indiana were on the warpath because they were They had been on the warpath for three or four They had been holding conventions and camp and had been giving
