I have had many years' experience with the Indians. I succeeded Kit Carson a the Agent for thelites in Kansas, and as long as the Indians were led, given tobacco, and whisky kept away from them. 1 had no trouble whutever with them. Afterward' I brought a deputation or Navajos to Washington. 1 see home idiotic Ageut tins just seut tnem on the war-path again by cutting off their tobacco ration." .
