Missouri is hero on bis return from a tour Regarding the causes and nature of the religious craze existing among the Indian tribes lie says 1 have been in the Utah Montana and Cheyenne reservations investigating this raze Yon have no doubt heard that the ridian tribes believe that a Messiah will come who is to restore them to their former glory bring back the bultalo drive the whites from the land 1 have learned that this belief exists among the various tribes of Sioux Caeyennes Blaekfoot Shoshones uid other tribes In all the craze extended to sixteen tribes the Snake Indians being ihe only ones to repudiate it There Is no doubt that many Indians holding this belief in the Indian Messiah are sincere and a few have certainly some person whom they look tb as that Messiah Several small parties of Indians have gone westward from their to some point which as near as I can locate is in Nevada There they have been shown somebody disguised as the Messiah and spoken with I am inclined to be lieve that there is more than ooe person im personating this Messiah as when the Sioux bavo spokenwith him he replied In the Sioux language and to the Blackfoots he spoke their tongue and so with the repre sentatives of each nation or tribe speaking their own language to Who do you think responsible for this im position upon Lha Indians I oinnot state positively tout its ray belief that the Mormons are the prime movers in it This is not a hard statement to believe for there are Mormons and they themselves claim to believe in prophets and spiritual manifesta tions andthey even now claim to hold inter course with the spirit of Joe JJ they have had missionaries at work among the Indians many years and have made many COD Do you think this new belief of the Indians will lead to outbreak and I do not think so hut where an Ignorant race become religious fanatics it is hnrd to tell just what they will doi It is noteworthy how that this socalled Messiah tells the In dians that when no comes to reign over them he says firearms will up longer be used or necessary He tells them also with his comiiig the dead In dians will all be raised to life the buffalo and he will draw a line behind on which he will gainer all the Indian and then he will earth back upon the whites This has naturally excited the Indians and numbers haveac capted the new belief Among those who have done so none are than Sitting Bull who is intensely Indian in alMiis yoii think the person who is impersonating the Messiahis a white man or an Indian who nave seen him say he is muffled up and disguised so that they do not see his face but I believe ho is a fullblooded white The ar gumentsthat Indians in discussing the mat lews that whites b aye had their Messiah and the Indiaus now have theirs The
