When the indians cant by cajoled or cheated out their lands they Are forced to t8k Wall. The new York evening Post editorially Puta the Case in this Way and puts it Strong the extract from lieu tenant Warren s report on he Black Hills show among other to tongs that except Nutine racially Aud in respect of the extent of territory respectively occupied by them relations Between the indians and the White people of this country have not changed Lor the last 20 years. We learn from this report that the red men were making in 1855. As they Are making now an logical defence of their right to the soil Whereon Tuy ranged and from which they derived subsistence. The Only reply to them then was a it now is the argument from necessity. The White men Are rapidly advancing upon All parts of the continent. They will eventually occupy every mile of its surf Soe. They need the land and All the sources of wealth which lie within it awaiting development and Ebay must have them. The original owner asked then Aud asks now have i no necessities Cau i establish no claim to the land and to those sources of wealth which i can develop and which compared with my Bumble wants and primitive methods Are even More important to me the answer is Al a ays the same Well it Yon insist on keeping it we shall take it and the threat never fails to be made Good. The Prea deut said this in substance to the Sioux chiefs the other Day at waa Hington although at the same time be expressed a desire to look alter the interests of the Indiana and make them As comfortable a possible. Lieutenant Warren of the engineers Twenty Yean ago said the sane thing substantially. He admits that be can not refute the aboriginal declarations of rights be admits that great wrong whole number l808 taken in on the Fly. the indians he draws i bad fully understood the Tail substance of said paper writing i would not have signed Aud sword to it. That part of said statement in reference to the calamity that happened to my husband a True and Correct but the part m reference to criminal Intercourse Aud improper advances to me by Thomas Mcintire superintendent of the Deal and Dauib Institute of Indiana 1» in Irmo. It Hgt True 1 called at the deaf Aud dumb institution in Indianapolis in the Mouth of August 187-1, and wanted said me Luclire to assist Tneia tue Prosee Tiou of my buit Saint the o. A m. Railroad company Aud the said Montire told Ine that it was too late to do anything in the matter by the lapse of years. But the St amp Tiu but in said paper writing that i was induced to sign and which is published in the incl Anapolis Sentinel aforesaid and which make me say that one a August 1874, in said institution said Mcl tire asked me to go Over the building with him and when we got into the Hospital or sick room for the girls in the North part of the building he asked me to let him do Eora Othius with me and that he forced me to lev him have com dual connection with me and afterwards made me Promise to say nothing about it in false and not a word of truth in the Sta Feingut and if i Nad fully understood that such wat in said paper i would not Hare signed it Aud sworn to it. That All the time 1 was in said institution said Mcintire always conducted pathetic picture of them not always threatening Slaughter but sometimes lagging the White people to take pity on them Aud let them alone. But he says that the settlements must go Forward he believes that War will help their Advance and shows How it tray be prosecuted Advent Geo by and a even recommends that the Creek and Dakota be set upon each other so that by in Ansof the Mutual destruction of the wretched red men precious White lives May be saved. Then too As now As we gather from Bis report treaties were broken agents swindled the tribes they were sent to help and even the gifts which with much show of Friendship were offered to the indians were used to deceive them. So it has been Ever since. No wonder that spotted Tail insists on feeling the Money in tis band before he signs any More agreements or that red Clond thinks he would rather buy his own presents. It la the fashion to dispose of these accumulated outrages which Are none the less outrageous because tue1k victims Ark hki.ple8s by pronouncing them inevitable. Perhaps they Are so but is it not time to face by fairly to treat them As inevitable and so to mitigate their consequences and make them less of a reproach to the civilization whose necessities we say occasion them instead of adopting policies hit sell toward me in a proper and gentle blah proceed upon the sumption that they.

The incl should he stated that they were read by or. A Ines in whose hand they had been placed As a member of the Board they were in the Possession old. Jame and were produced by aim. The report seems to show that the charges were produced by the counsel Lor fawkner.

It May have significance somewhere else Bat it Doea not Here before Tols Board. I hey were handed to a member not an officer of the Board during vacation. He Beu had no official relation to this Board. Even if the papers were placed in Bis hand they were not filed. The record therefore is Tiue it waiters not whose baud it come from.

Being neither of there eminent French gentlemen he imply turned of horse and hurried Uick to try and catch the Man he and see-., but Only succeeded in finding himself be too. The Birdp amp a flown. To biotin were evidently getting too hot for Bancker to stay and the Plain inference we that the Way to Trace him we to watch the mail. For ibis Par pose the employee id the government Poe Toffle were instructed to keep a close watch for All lefts that were addressed to the House where mrs. Eggleston went or that would in any Way Point to Bancker whereabouts. But none of re received and for several weeks the Trail seems to be lost altogether. Attar a Lew weeks it was brought to lib thata package had Tseu sent to him by Adams exp Rew to Charleston to. Or. It s. Bell a United states Date Cire. Who had been in pairs i of him for t to Yea was telegraphed to immediately and upon going to car lesson found Hie game there.

Beside thin charge of Deal cation to the poet office department and the equally Gravo one of polygamy it 1» at lt£6ci cow that Bancker was in pastel in peeing a raised Check on Lane a Bulley while in this City and Afier he left Here was a party to a forgery of $1,700 Ca the first Natman in Bank of Cairo Illinois. Yoster Day afternoon or. Bell the detective was in Thi City and he Aud colonel Snelbaker were Hunting up evidence to be introduced in the approaching trial of Bancker. A Slippery swindler with a shrewd sister How or old did Cincinnati debt Civ a by the Aid of said sister uis final capture and arrest a defaulter and bigamist on his travels. The Cincinnati enquirer tells the moving Atory As follows Soma six or eight weeks ago colonel Snellbaker chief of police had a Call from one of the secret Agente of the pm office department to ask Bis assistance in Muling up and arresting one Captain h. T. Marker an sex postmaster of Winona miae., who wan a defaulter to the go Ern ment to the extent of 810,000, a bigamist to the Mea Uro of Throe or four wives a suspected forger Aud a bad lot generally lie distorted himself under a variety of names also. Sometimes he appeared As Henry Mancera at others As Henry eager and at Hill others As Harry a Gleaton. Bancker it Serene had had origin somewhere Down in Western Massachusetts in the neighbourhood of Pittsfield or Lennox or great Barrington or some other of that group of pleasant Little Mountain towns. He had fit in the late cruel War and through it and taking his Little carpet bag in his hand bad eone South to grow up with the country. Then when Andy John on became president he had been male postmaster and Here his Iron Hies began. On going South in the year 1809, be had left his wife and two children at Pittsfield Maes. He soon tired however of living alone so Bis new Home Aud in Tead of bringing the family he had already to cheer him in his Lou Eli nes he conclude into Start fun other by marrying one of the reigning Belles in the town be Post mastered. From this second Alliance he became the father of three More children. And then his troubles began. I seems that in Mie course of six years Bancker succeeded in manipulating accounts of his office so As to be ahead of Tweti ten and Exevea thousand Dollar. Then he Eueda died leaving another wife and three children aides numerous creditors to bewail Bis absence. And so the government detectives were put on Bis track. He next turns up out in Chicago As Harry Eaglin this time with a considerable Sura or Money and a desire to enter into the wild Lite of speculation that Prados that town. This was ten years ago. Lie started by handling Grain in the abstract that is by pure Basing it in the form of warehouse and elevator receipt on a margin but soon drifted into dealing with it in Thi Ron Iete that is in the shape of whisky Aud Beer and other stimulating potable sukh he dispensed across the bar of a fashionable state Street Saloon. While thus engaged be again became lonely and p Ned Lor family ties. So to avoid the trouble and expense of sending for either one of his existing wives he concluded to marry another and id Fry he did. To stayed there a year May i after this last in it Imoneal venture. Then his troubles Regan to close in on him Tagalu. The detectives were still enraged in looking for bin Aud he Learned that his whereabouts was discovered. So to got up and skimmed out again leaving mrs. Mane her the third to add her tears to Cooee of her Well her alters a Law we might Call them perhaps. Tide was perhaps six or eight Mouths ago. Then lie came to Cincinnati to try his fortunes.

The Little Bird Ungino in the grangers heart the Grasshopper gone and very going perfectly Lovely. The Topeka special to yesterdays St. Louis Globe Democrat strikeout a Section of that name says the atmosphere is not so Cerulean with profanity oat Here As it waa a week or two ago. The Little Bird is singing in the Granger heart of Kansas. The Grasshoppers Are taking to Bemsel Vee wings and flying for other Fields and pastures new. From All quarters comes the Bee ring report that the Jerky Peats Are on the move. Tho exodus commenced two or three Days since and already things look brighter. The Public mind which bag been All torn in with Chagrin and a Preben Sion since the 1st of May is gradually thing Back to the Beecher trial and the t form bub Luesa and people Are beginning again to Manifest a healthy interest in sunday schools and the like. This improved feeling 19 somewhat tempered however by a flagging suspicion that the departing red legs May not Fly last enough and far enough to assure Early and Complete Security. For they Are Only going not gone you must understand. Still All things considered. The Outlook is encouraging and uni Ere All accepted signs fail it is Safe to assume that the worst is Over and that the chances Are now at least three to one that Kansas will Reise More Luau an average in some local set third Are not stall inevitable and which pretend to establish and maintain Asya tem under which they would be impossible is it not time to ask and answer the question what Are the indians and to govern them and our treatment of them accordingly. From the foundation of the government we have been treating them in original negotiations with ourselves As if they constituted a foreign Independent Power. Only with such a Power can we make treaties. But when we come to enforce the treaties to modify them or to violate them As we May see fit then we do not treat the indians Assn Independent Power. Then we conveniently put them in the attitude of occupants of a conquered province. The theories Aud practice of making treaties with Indiana Are a Larca. We May make a treaty with the smallest and Moat insignificant foreign nation but we May not overrun its territory find claim it As our own. This last is what we do with the indians. We recognise the right of the foreign nation however feeble to make treaties with other nations Bat we would not admit for an instant the binding Force of any convention Between oar indians and great Britain or Ermany. It is easy to say then what the indians Are not. They Are not a foreign Independent Power capable of making treaties. Such a Power Mast have some standing ground must a Sovereign of a territory. We deny any such right to the indians and claim All their land a our own. It remains then that they Are occupant of territory Over which we have sole jurisdiction. What Are they Are they citizens the question is an old and vexed one. Much has been said on both sides of it and probably much More will be Aid. Many Persona believe that until they Are civilized it would be disgraceful to share our Ocillee Habip with them but it May be doubted whether the indians As citizens would be a greater disgrace to us than they Are in their present condition. Not a Tew actus i Izena Are the reverse of creditable to us.1 we try to educate and otherwise improve them. May of them we lock up in prison. What we never do is to set them apart As a burlesque Independent nation and go to rough the farce of making with them treaties which have no Force or effect. It i possible that the indians might be regarded As citizens Iti a qualified sense and is not having All the rights Aud function of citizenship. At All events the question what Are they a worthy the Active attention of the latent statesman shop of the country. Until it la answered our Indian policy will continue to be a reproach to the Republic. It May be inevitable that the red men shall disappear from the lace of the Earth but la it not possible that they Ahall go in respectable fashion extermination May be inevitable Bat at least let it be carried on decent y and in order. Ally bidding on a Fine team As a Peter Funk but never becoming the actual owner of the Noree Leah. Here the detectives somehow traced him again but by the Lime they arrived he Lead been warned and had left. They discovered though that he was in com Munka Tiou with somebody and applied to the Biet of police to work up Theca a. This somebody the officer entrusted with the Case soon discovered was none other than has Ester. This sister bore the name of mrs. Bancker an of Uip Loye in the paper beg manufactory and a remarkably Cool Quick witted Young widow. She was Shad wed by a detective and followed to her room at no. East fifth Street a Large thro Story building divided up into living rooms on the european plan. When her identity thus became known and her whereabouts was discovered col. Snelbaker set a watch of the premises la order if possible to capture Bancker. A it was believed that be was Atill in Thi Vicinity. For tour weeks this building was watched whenever sue was in it. And was followed whenever she left ii u. It without Avail. Her brother did not Mak id appearance. One thing however to found out and that was that i egg Teton took fir quent trip to Covington and thither be a followed one do. The Man who was watching her got into tin Wule car stayed there mini a got out and then followed her to no. Wat tenth Street Covington where he saw her Euter the House. This was another link in the Chain of for mat Ion they were try aug to makeup. They Tad found out where she went to while acre the River. The very next Day colonel Shel bakery spy truck on a Lead by a Mere Accident. He was standing at the Corner of fourth and Walnut s Rte a when a boy with an envelope in his hand came up t it him asking where Chatfield a Woods stabs Hemut was. Without answering the boy be took the envelope from Hia band and read the address on it mrs. Bancker. The envelope had just been sealed and the paste was Atill Damp. He opened it and read i must see you to night fell Rne where to meet you. Hen by. The spy put the letter Back into its envelope closed it again and showed the boy the place be was Hunting and waited for i return. In a few minutes he came out with an answer and tub spy bribed him this time to let him look at it. He opened it and read i am watched both Day and night. Dont come Over Here. Will see Yon there. And Here the spy made Bis mistake. He Felt sure be had Hia Man now. The woman he knew the Taomae in Covington he knew Aud All that remained was to follow the one to the other and the game would fall into their Neta. Overjoyed at his Good Fortune he did not give the letter Back to the Little boy hut kept it and hurried up to Snelbaker attn it. To boy not know log what it All meant went Back across the River to Tell the person who had sent him what turn befallen him and in Tia Way sprang toe trap too Early. Snelbaker a soon Asho read the answer started across the River in Hia buggy and a now sure that while crossing the Bridge he met Bancker the very Man be was wanting. Among those he met was a Man whose face he recognized but at the moment locate remember be had Only been him in photograph Paz la other localities notably the extreme Western counties will produce far More than in any former year. So if we can set rid of the hoppers with any reasonable time say two or three weeks the general product of the state a a whole will equal and possibly surpass the Best in her of Story. The weather could not have been better he. Far if it had been made to order and. Excepting Only the Bug the Kansa Farmer has nothing whatever to complain of. When the True history of Kansas shall lie written no part of it will reflect More credit upon her people for courage endurance and ingenuity than the avar against the Grasshoppers which has been waged throughout her limits during the past six weeks and which Atill goes bravely on. It la entirely within Bounds to Sav counting both sexes and All aae. That the fighting Force Pat into the Field in Kansas this year for the destruction and discomfiture of these hateful insects exceeds the number of Soldier called oat in 1801 for the suppression of the rebellion. Aud what a conflict u Baa been All conceivable Means have been resorted to for thinning and driving off the invading Bosta some simple some Clumsy some ludicrous and some real triumphs of Genius. There has been Burnt leg and scourging and trap eing and poisoning. Whole neighbourhoods ave joined Aud moved upon the enemy in regular military order. Trenches wide enough and enough deep to arrest a charge of determined soldiery have been Dag around gardens and Fields. Acres upon acres of Batching ground a have been enclosed with Box like Board contrivances and the Young pests Imp is it Ned there until they die of starvation. In Tome places fences and out House have been covered Over with goal tar to catch and hold the hopping swarms Aad in other places regular barricades were improvised in front of the advancing regions with a View to checking their Progress until they could be whipped to death with brooms and swi Tebow. All imaginable Fope Ruments in killing have been tried with varying effect. These experiments Bave demonstrated one theory to a certainty and that u that of All known insects the Gra bopper a hardest to kill. He will a through an Ordinary Prairie fire and hardly wince at it. Scalding water will sometime dispatch him. But not always Aud be will survive a two Days immersion in a bag under for feet of old water. Chloroform puts him to sleep but a roses from it after a few Honre and move on. Kerosene is not certain Dreth to him even if be be saturated in it and set Ablaza. Most of the acids administered in Liberal doses will give him a final quietus but Bat preparations composed of two part acid and three parts water ten drops of which would prove Fata to a human being do not seem to affect him in the feast.

Of coarse these things sound Flaby Bat they Are fact nevertheless. And As such submitted toa candid world.
