Beaver Radical (Newspaper) - May 02, 1873, Beaver, PennsylvaniaThe Radical Friday May 2, 1s?3.the Beaver Radical. Smith Cortis. Spito. Bea Vlco Rah Friday morning May 2d, 1873. The Modoc and the Indian peace policy. The murder of general cabby and or. Thomas by the Modoc y when under the Protection of a Flag of truce raised at first a Universal cry not Only tor their extermination but for the destruction of All the other dangerous tribes of the West. The peace policy was denounced As a crime against civilization and tree pressure upon the government was great to sol Diers and bullets tor supplies and to wage a War to Effie equally put an end to the Indian disturbances by exterminating the _ evil doers themselves. But we hold that the peace policy is the True policy after All and that n it is founded upon Correct principles that the present difficulty with the Modoc did not justly Spring from it As effect follows cause. This policy has a been from the first and original and distinguishing feature of the present administration and the president who is tenacious of purpose Clear of perception and conscientious As to duty will not readily yield to the inconsiderate cry of the multitude and abandon to lbs at course which in the main has already produced substantial results and if adhered to will undoubtedly solve the vexed problem satisfactorily to the credit of the nation. Them Doos have some just ground for complaint they have been ill ubed some of their number have been massacred by the Whites in a treacherous manner they have been forced to remove from one reservation to another repeatedly denied the privilege of remaining amid the awful forms of nature with which Long acquaintance had made them familiar in their native Val Leys and rugged strongholds and finally when about to be driven from their Homes on lost River and being absolutely denied the to it up by the peace commissioners and general Volar Tiab ctr. Sing said tract As a reservation have turned on their enemies and made use of what seems to us in. Justifiable though to them legitimate Means to wreak their vengeance giving �10 mercy and evidently expecting none in return feeling no doubt that they had no rights that the White men were bound to respect the request of the Modoc to dwell on the reservation of lost River was not unreasonable in their View and we can cot eee Why if they were so tenacious about it it was not granted. If when so placed they continued to commit depredations and murders they could have been treated As amenable to Law and punished for their crimes justly. The Indian at his Best is a Savage naturally cruel treacherous turbulent and dangerous to the peace of the Community Bat nature made him so and placed him Here and we do not think these characteristics afford any reason Why he should be exterminated or shot Down like wild beasts. Undoubted 41 in regard to the treatment of the Modoc there is no alternative Bat Wei pundit i Hay the Pushe d to the bitter end. This Savage tribe Mast be subdued and made to keep the peace but it May be a difficult Job and somewhat costly. It is no time to consider whether it might have been avoided and to fix the blame where it belongs the Pioneer settlers of the West must be protected in their lives and property but the War should be carried on in a Christian spirit and not in imitation of the Savages. There should be no cruel and wholesale massacres no murdering of defenceless women and children no War of extermination unless absolutely necessary to safety and future Security. Whatever is necessary ought to be done and no More and if possible the general peace policy of the government saved in regard to the other tribes. Let the hand that govern these untutored men of the mountains and Plains be firm and open that they May be taught to obey Laws and respect the pow ers that make and the authority that executes them. Demand of Western Farmers. The contest now going on Between the Western Farmers and the railroads in regard to cheap transportation has created wide discussion and produced a profound Ingres Siouan the minds of thinking men. The Farmers complain that the profits of their Industry it Are consumed by the great Railroad corporations that while com is Worth seventy four cents in new York they realize Only fifteen cents the railroads fifty nine. It does not yet appear that the Railroad charges1 Are higher than a fair compensation for the work performed but whether the charges be excessive or not the fact still exists that the Farmers cannot realize by reason of the High rates of transportation a Hying Price for their products. Their complaint is Earnest and their movement towards Reform is taking s practical shape that foreshadows very startling und Radical changes in our governmental met Boot. Genera Grant in Bis inaugural struck the key note of the present great demand of the country when he recommended the attention of Congress to the subject of obtaining cheaper Means of transportation Between the West and the East. Under the present system there is a great army of non producers men engaged in the necessary business of exchanging products Between different sections of the country and this army is supported by heavy taxation upon the articles transported until the Harden upon both the consumer and producer is greater than can be patiently borne. The Farmers cannot understand Why the rates of freight should be so High and a re therefore organizing a warfare against the great Railroad monopolies their extortionate practices their tyrannical role and seem determined to wage the War to the bitter end if necessary in order to obtain a Reform. The end which the Farmers have in View cheaper freights is a sound policy it is by the race is passing away it has j identical in spirit with the policy fulfilled its Mission a new order of of Protection that now rules the a men is succeeding to their places tand occupying their Homes All of which the indians seem to realize and lament. Their Fate is a sad one a / and were we in their circumstances we might resist the Advance of Progress even More savagely than they. The a shite Many a judgment of the indic is biased to him he appears useless and in the Way and he ought to be Content if he has where to sleep and enough to eat that he has no right to his native soil and the wild Hunting grounds Over which he has been Yoou stored roam Tegt he should yield to Trike pioneers of civilization and give Typ his Broad acres to the axe plow and Hoe Anji Al part into a strange , or if a unwilling and obstinate to be shot Down in cold blood mercy air Al in the name of Liberty. This is the opinion of to 4any, and leads to Png ustice and cruelty. The a it each tag amp by is opposed to this Riewer and 8 based upon human a Christian principles consistent wife a boated rights and with the $,a-4b�tje tendency of the age. And so distribute equally the population Over the whole country8 Farad possible and by Litber method the complaints it of the Farmers vanishes. Probably by both Means the result will be reached. Cheaper freights Mast and will be obtained in some Way the welfare of the country clearly demands this Reform and it will hereafter in Bur opinion become a leading political Issue. The railroads have been of immense use in developing the cd entry they Are Worth Mono than they have Cost and Are destined to work yet greater benefits but they should not be run in the interests of a few against Tiemanjr or of enrich great corporations at Quot ithe expense of the Prosperity of the people. If the re to a of fare and freight Are much higher than is necessary to furnish a sufficient indo Meto manage run and keep up the railroads then they should be reduced to the basis of paying a certain percentage and expenses and no More. Gen. Grant has Takeh the Lead of the Farmers on this subject and asked the Aid of the government towards furnishing cheaper transportation Between the West and the Seaboard. More attention to this important subject doubtless will be Given next Winter in Congress and we Hope to see some solution of the problem then begun at least. Ocean cables have be oboe common and belaying of a flew one across the Atlantic has ceased to attract general attention but yet it is a event of great importance. The great Eastern Wili Quot arrive in new York in a few Days for the purpose of laying another Cable but this time from new a amp a to England. If the Enterprise is successful the new Cable will probably be in working order some time this summer. Political. Of Protection nation. Whatever cheapens freight tends to bring together the producer and consumer in order that each May enjoy the fell rewards of his own labor. Protection stimulates Industry and causes manufactories to Spring no in every Section which become Home markets for the Farmers produce but cheap transportation accomplishes the same end and affords the advantages of amp More diversified Industry. The Farmers demand therefore is patriotic and in the interests of the a a a. A future welfare of the whole country but the Means by which the much desired result. Is to be gained Are not yet evident. The Effort of the free traders. To capture the movement in the interest of the a cafe cratic party is hot Only foolish in the extreme but illogical/�?�7 the tendency of free trap is to remove further and further the producer from the Constiner but this distances the very.

I Philadelphia april 21,1878. The work oif the constitutional convention is under Way again the members being fully determined to hurry things up As rapidly As consistent with judicious legislation. Two sessions Are held daily from 10 of clock a. Until i p. M., and again from 3 p. Until 5 p. There Are some vacancies from death and resignation among the members but 4be officers of the convention remained unchanged. Or. Meredith is again it Bis seat. Hon. D. L. It brie a very Napoleon of executive ability has Hie corps in Active service and himself always at his Post. Or. Imbrie is a thoroughly eff Cimeot officer and most conrteou8 gentleman or. A. T.

Linton he discharged Alobe All the duties of the transcribing room a service As creditable to his head As to Bis heart. Or. Linton is again at work More Active than Ever though still suffering from the effects of his Accident. We see by the sunday papers that be has recently been elected Secretary of the sea Villa Stock company a position he is eminently calculated to adorn As they say of the ladies. But seriously this sea Villa Enterprise promises to be a great Success. It is a new tittering place on the Jersey coast about twelve Miles from Cape May. A Branch Railroad is in process of construction and hotel buildings will be completed this summer. Or. Miller the president of the company belongs to the oldest and wealthiest family a of Cape May county and is familiar with All the capitalists of the sur rounding country. Or. Linton who has for years been intimately connected with Many of our Public enterprises and has a Large and influential acquaintance throughout the country is doubtless just the Man to be in charge of such an undertaking. But enough of the convention. I wrote you last week that the coloured ladies of Philadelphia had organized themselves to give Aid to the Centennial commission. But alas and a Lack for social Equality the White feminine declined to fraternize and said the Blacks must work by themselves. The coloured women refused to work out of their own wards and their fairer Sisters took away their boobs telling them they were Only asked out of compliment at any rate so bad better quit. Then the funny part comes in. Is it a compliment to be let ask per pie to give their Money and to be permitted to give your own it is Only right to say Here that Ever since the emancipation of the negro race their women Bave shown a determination to stand up for their rights that is infinitely creditable to their sense of individual dignity. When the male principal of the coloured High school went As minister to Hayti no coloured Man could be found the equal of miss Jackson to mathematical and classical attainments the position was offered of her at one half the salary or Basset received but she declined taking a cent less than had been paid to her predecessor. In other Colora de schools the same thing has happened Over and Over again but our. Female american citizens of african descent Bave Al ways come up to time and Gener. Ally won .

What will they come to next when they now steal the hair off your head.

A few weeks ago i concluded that Spring with Herb amp my breezes had overshadowed us with her Beautiful wings calling for dormant nature to assert her rights and beautify our earthly heritage. But How sadly i was mistaken in my predictions As the weather has taught us in the last two weeks Cloudy Chilly Rainy and disagree each a without intermission. But Why should we murmur when our heavenly father does All things for the Best. He will cause Spring to come in her loveliest and grandest attire when he in his All Wise Providence sees fit.
