A Search Among tbe Archive and the Indian History it Divulged. There are but few, indeed, of the Citiaen of Little Rock, and tbe state generally, who are well up in tbe history of tbe Qaapaw Indiaus. Mora's tbe pity, for a better,nobler band, of ted men never trod tbo soil of tbe 'New World. Men speak of tbe Quapaw line daily, but we'll venture to say not one in ten knows its meaning. It is the southern boundary line of tbe territory ceded in the treaty of 1S18 between tbe y us paws and the United States government, and the northern line in the territory described in tie treaty ratified on tbe 19ib of l-Vbruary, 1825. The Qaapaw Indians, while brave and ftarlees, were ever regarded as peaceable and friendly to tbe whites. - Many of the early settlers of the southwest claimed that , this tribe is related to the Mexican and originally came from tbat country. Marquette, in his works-, gives them an excellent character for bravery, upright newt and honesty. Below wil; be found a copy o( the first treaty witb these Indians, which was ratified Jannary 5, 119: Of a t'taity tf friendtip, cession ami Km ti, made and entered into, this S4th dav of Auuut, 181f, by and between William Clark and A:igu4 Chouteau, commiak-nen uti-lht part and behalf I tbe United State, of the one art; and tbe undersigned chiefs ai d warriors of the tjuapaw tribe or nation, oil the part and behalf of their -aid tribe or nation, of the other part .Artci-e 1.

It is claimed by tbe opponents of the Fishback amendment tbat they stand upon the broad platform , 01 ngbj. and justice between man and man. If such is the case,we would reanectlully ask upon what ' platform did the state democratic conventions or IS74 and 78 and the legislature of 1879 stand? In these respective bodies this subject was made a matter of discussion, and eventually considered of sufficient importance to tbe welfare of the people at large, as to be referred to them for final action, la the plat form of tbe state convention of 1880, section 0, the action of tbeea bodies are commended, and it is rpecifically stated that the question ie not a party one, but is to be submitted to the people, '( irrespective of party. If this is the condition of things,' what is the use in constantly dinning in tbe public ear the learaed opinions of the legal minds? Why not let tbe matter go be ore tbe people for their free and antrammelod action, without all this fui. this blow about the matter? Yet it really seem strange tbat tbe party giving b rtb to tbe auhject in 1874, cradling it through iu Infancy to 1878, and who took it into full communion and placed it before the people a it offspring from tb.; legislative ball of 1879, should now be the only power arrayed against tbe amendment, aeemiagly engaged in tbe laudable effort of trying to strangle it owa offeprisg.
