and looking after them, had been
twelve to lllteeu hundred thou-and dol

Department having charsoorour Indian
alliiirs. His opinions and his advice
were disregarded ; tho views of tho
military commander nnd or thosu who
thought with him prevailed! these In
ilium were removed to the Hosquo ito
dondo reservation, and they have been
kept thcro from that time to this under
the policy which was adopted.
During tho last year, assuming that
these Indians nuinherslx thousand, ns
stated in the proposed amendment, tho
Government of tho United States has
paid for the support of each Indian, in
eluding squaws and children, twentv
dollars n month. That is tho burdeii
which has been charged upon tho Treas
ury, aim which is now cliarged uponit
by tho existing system.
H.V tho wav. I deslro to .state tlinl. tli!
faithful and intelligent olllccr who made
theso reports to us, who entered this
protest of which I have spoken, was re
moved from hlsolllcn In i-onnpniipnon nf
his objection to this scheme of military
ui.iiiui;i:iiii:m. was, wiiuoui notice,
tinned but of oillco, and with his re
ports'beforous wo agreed to tlienppoint
liient of n successor who would enn-
lorm to this new, expensive, and out
rageous scheme which was established.
My voice was against it at the time ;
but I was overruled. Tho Delegate
from the Territory went up in thu or
dinary way to the seat of political power
the executive department, and had this
stubborn and faithful olllccr turned out
of his place in order that tho Treasury
might be plundered; and it isn shame
to the .Senate and to Congressthat, with
thu wholiotruth before them, he was so
removed, and this abuse established In
the administration of tho Government;
Now, sir, it is proposed that tho ad
ministration of this system of charity
for it is such shall bo taken out of tho
hands of the War Department, of tho
military authorities', ami confided to the
Interior Department, to tho Durcatt of
Indian Alliiirs; and wo are told that by
this change our expense in supporting
Hie Indian children and Indian woman
and the Indian men in tho Territory of
Xew Mexico is to drop down from
twenty dollars per month to nine dol
lars ami a third. It is true that this
would bo a very considerable relief to
the Treasury ; i.ut upon an examina
tion of tho tacts it will bo seen, nothing
can he more certain than, that if you
continue these Indians where thy nro
now located you must continuo to feed
them and to support them; ami the
simple question proposed tons by tho
pending amendment is whether wo
shall charge them upon tho Treasury in
the future at thu rate of nino nud ono
third dollars per month, if indeed that
be found sulHcient for tile purpose It
has heretiifore required twenty dollars'
per month, and possibly if wo appropri
ate tho nino anil one-third dollars per
month now. wo 'shall Uo called upon for
the rest of the amount required in some
future deficiency bill. Hero is a drain
of $l,600,U0O peranum on (ho Treasury
at present for six thousand wretched
fugitive Indians ; and tho utmost of
remedy that is proposed to us is that wo
bhall by tho present appropriation re
duce tho amount to a littio less than ono
half of what it is at present, with tho
imminent peril impending over us that
in some future deficiency bill wo shall
have to make n further appropriation.
Xow, sir, what is the character of the
country whero theso Indians nro loca
ted'.' It is notailaptcd to their habits,
it is not adapted to their nature. It is
a country requiring great caro iu tho
cultivation or tho earth in order to pro
duce supplies. It isa ploco whero irriga
tion is necessary, whero public works
are necessary, where industry is neces
sary, in order that human beings shall
subsist at all. I confess that I am not
at all ciiarmeu with tins men or re-
tho amount which wo are to
contribute in this way hereafter. I
would like to cut up this policy entirely.

will bo that many of them will tleo from

Mr. CONXKSS. I can hnrdlv trust

I am so thoroughly and entirely con

General Curleton vent down thero with
about three thousand troops from Cali

tlio Governor of California. His three
thousand troops were as splendid men
as ever stepped ; they were not enlisted
from tho unemployed people of tho

subaltern olllcers who were no ordinary
men, 'but who left their profitable busi
ness, sumo of them avocations yielding
live to ten and twenty thousand dollars
annually, to taken captain's commission,
with tho expectation ot meeting the foe
of their country in tho field. They were

Mr. BUCK ALE W. I desire to read

Indian Affairs, dated October 31, 18C.5,
a statement of tlio general question with
regard to these Indians, llo said then:
