CARL1RLB, Pa., March f
H N AUDIENCE of almost -.',000
M people witnessed the intsrssting
I ) commencement exercises of tbe
U U linliui Industrial school this af
temoon The greatl interest of the
oecsslorj was further heightened by the
celebration at lh same tun n of the fif
teenth Nouiveraary of the Institution
which Csptaiu It. H. Pratt estab
lished in the heart of the Cumberland
vail y. As an miuy officer of many
years' espuriencs on the frontier be
early reached the conclusion tint the
tidiau question, if it was ever to be
solved, must bu accomplished through
assimilation and every lay contact
with the civil. zed whit people; that
the tribal relations must bo broken up,
that the Indian must be treated as any
other citizen and not us an alien.
He bad no faith in tho reservation
system and does not now believe that
the herding together of tho Indiana
will accomplish anything, except tbe
tnnihilation of the race. It was Cap
tain Pratt's origin il thought that until
'.lie Indian youths were scattered
among the whites their condition
would not be materially improved, nn 1
ho caroled ont this policy when the
school at Carlisle was opened.
OOTUia SYSTEM Sl'CCKS 1FDI
His outing system lis been a success
from the beginning. Every summer
from 100 to 500 of the girls and boys of
the school live upon the farms of east
ern Pennsylvania They are in de
m ind and the application for their
services largely exceeds the supply
l'neir earning last summer amounted
in the aggregate to nearly rJ'-'o.OOO and
the boys ami girls were able to bear
their own expenses at tbe World's fair.
Today four big chiefs were present
on tho invitation of Captain Pratt, and
their expenses, over 1800, worn paid by
tho students, these uOiofs were Lone
Wolf, a leader of the KioWas; Cjitanali,
a rich Comanche; Cloud Chief, a Chey
enne, and Black Coyote, an Arrappa
hoe chieftain. -They wll' spend several
days at the school and will have a pow
wow with Captain Pratt, to wiiom they
boar messages of good will from their
people on the fi outior.
THE OPINION OF LONE WOLF.
In a speech last night Lou Wolf,
who is a line looking, intelligent man
and an orator, dwelt upon the kind
ness of those who had given these
privileges to their children Captain
Pratt, he said, had been raissd up by
the great spirit to do this work and
added: "As 1 look into the faces of
these. Indian children I am thankful.
You have already started on the right
mad and all yon want to do is to push
forward. Keep your faces to the front.
Do not turn nnid", but go for
ward. I like to see the young In
dians grow up to be different from
what tneir parents iiave been. I like
the white man's rule. I now reallBS
that the white man's rnlo u very good.
While I am talking here (rod is ston

wnat I have said U all from my heart,
