William Hepworth Dixon, White Conquest: Volume 1, Chapter 30: Oklahoma. (search)
ge the hope of reconciling Creek and Seminole, Choctaw and Chickasaw, under a common rule and a single flag. Still more, their hearts go out into a day when tribes still wild and pagan-Cheyennes, Apaches, Kiowas, and other Bad Faces — will have ceased to lift cattle and steal squaws, will have buried the hatchet and scalping-knife, and will have learned to read penny fiction and to drink whisky like White men. That day is yet a long way off. A new policy has just been adopted by President Grant towards the Red men, with a view to their more speedy settlement and conversion. This policy is founded on Franciscan experience, but adapted to the principles of a secular state, and the existing order of things. In future, the Indians are to be received and marked .as wards. Driven by bayonets into nooks and corners, they are now placed under the guidance of certain sects, who feed and teach them, and under the inspection of certain captains, who watch and shoot them, should they b

seeing me mark some passages in a morning paper, with a view to future use, came up and said to me: Guess you're a correspondent of the New York press? No, sir; I am a visitor from the old country. Ha! an Englishman! You know Ulysses S. Grant? I have that privilege. Guess you can tell me what he is going to do with the Indians? I'm Texas-born, and represent the Spread Eagle; guess you've heard of the Spread Eagle? No! That's strange. Well, I've come out East to learn wuit the Government better as a magazine of arms and stores. Two words along the wires, just Go ahead, would bring ten thousand men to Denison, Caddo, and Limestone Gap in less than a week. That country, Sir, is the garden of America. If Ulysses S. Grant will only give the sign, I guess our Texan horse will soon be picketed on the Arkansas. I fear that editor is right. Five years after the Indian countries are opened up to capital and labour, as every part of a republic must be opened to

ity of votes, except through treason to the first principle of a Republic. Such was their case and ours. Forget our common origin-our blood, our history, our literature, our civilised life-things which we hold in common from our English ancestry; and in the absence of all ties of memory and affection, we demand, as members of a free society, the right of settling things by a majority of voices. Such a claim is hardly to be denied in a Republic. Yet that claim was set aside by President Grant. For what? Because he hankered after a second term, and needed Southern votes. A gang of dollar-hunters swarmed into Texas, not to settle in the country, but to eat it up; fellows having no stake in the soil, no knowledge of the people, no concern with planting towns, no interest in promoting order. Backed by Federal officers, they organized Black clubs, and convened private meetings of scalawags. Seizing our electoral lists, they put in names and struck out names, according to the

methods of a large and complex commerce. He walks two or three miles, and spends an hour or more in gathering twenty oranges from a tree. The time and cost are much the same as though he were to gather a thousand, but his brain has no conception of scale. In Louisiana, the Negroes count a clear, though not a large, majority of votes, and claim to have a clear majority of members in the Chamber. They are backed by Federal troops. Their nominee, William P. Kellogg, is recognised by President Grant as Governor of Louisiana. Yet see the train in which we are going towards New Orleans! By law, a Negro is the White's man's equal; by the railway company he is charged the White man's fare. Is he allowed to exercise the simplest of his rights-to travel in which car he pleases? Never. An Irish navvy, a Mexican pedlar, may take a seat in any car; but not a man or woman of the African race. His scalawag champion cannot help him in a train. Here ladies rule. All ladies are Conser
