The meeting of the directors of the

readers will see that the present able
management of the . & M. simply
strengthens their road by building
from Keuesaw directly southwest to
Arapahoe, instead of running south
some fortv miles to lied Cloud and
then west to Arapahoe.
This will leave lied Cloud the
principal station on the Tecumseh
and Wytnore branch, while (tastings
will take prominence as the principal
point on the main iino for central Ne

TEACH5NG THEM TO WORK.
There is reason to hope that Secreta
ry teller is on the right track m the
matter of iudiau education. Karly in
his service as p?ectetary he announced
his beliei that it as more important
to teach the Indians to labor tliau to
leach them to read, ad the good sense
ot the prcprsilion is conclusive. Per
haps his eotimate, in his letter to the
National laiucaiiuiial Association
meeting at O-ean Grove thai if Con
gress will give money enough lor the
Indian sciiool, nothing will be heard
ot lite iuih .a prooieni in the next gen
eration was too sanguine. The leop
ard cauuot change his spots in oae gen
eration, even if nis teeih aie pulled
audi he is set to work running the tread
mill tor the family churn. The char
acteristics of the race cannot be oblit
erated even by the most civilizing in
fluences, except after a long lapse of
time, and We shall doubtless have Indi
an "'trouble" through the begiuuin ot
tne twentieth century, to say the least,
liut it is interesting to estimate what
can be done toward Indian civilization
in this wa), aud especially by establish
ment of manual-laoor schools Iu his
last it-port the. Secretary estimated that
by the establishment ot a sufficient num
ber of these schools, 20,WO pupils in
ail would have been seut out by the
end ot the fiscal year 1888, able to care
for tiietu-eiVes, and the total expense
would not exceed 2,o00,b00, or about
two-thirds the amount expended in
fighting the Indians during 1SG4-"C5.
Tne school populatiou ot the Indians at
the present fuie is neany 40,000. Toe
average attendance of ail ihe .-ciioois
last year was 5,J00; this year the Secre
tary cxpec s to have 2.500 in labr
To carry out his proposed plan would
require a liberal increase in appropria
tions. Leaving the question 01 its en
tire adoption opeii, " it may safely be
said that it is cheaper to educate an Iu
diau than to kill him- The old saying
was that it cost a thousand dollars to
kill an Iudian. The probability is hat
it cost a oOUij deal more, but a thous
and dollars, taking that as the figure,
would have given that Indian, when a
few years younger, about five years'
schooling at Carlis.e or Hampton, at
the rate fixed by Congress. He would
have emerged from it with a trade, or
some other pteparation for labor, with
a good store of general knowledge,and
with the old sarage idea that work i3
fit only for squaws and white men well
educated out of him. It is as plain as
the rule of three that this must tend
rapidly to the civilization of the race.
One great drawback, however, ha3
been the inability of some of the edu
cated young men and women to stand
against the demoralizing1 influences of
the half-savage life when they returned
to it. They found themselves, with
their newly acquired refinement and
decency, in the midst of the old filth,
squalor, immorality and ehiftlessuess
by which th-?y were once surrounded.
