NEUTRAL INPOU7ICS U?JDR
On last Wednesday, Sarah Winne
mucca aud her sister, Emma, arrived
io "this place, escorted by two soldier.s.
Tiiey cani' from Fort Harney and the
two women were wet to the a!;in, hav
i T forded the creaks and travelled all
day in a drenching rain. Sarah is on
ier ,vay to Yak ion to try to induce
her people to return to the Mall. cur
'Agency, and she informed us that Leg
gius and his band and all of Oils'
band, except Pady Caps, Oils, Beads
an Charley, will return, they not be
5;ag allowed to return. The above
bands will einbnce about 400 people.
From Nevada, she says, Ochoho'a
baud, her father and family and a num
ber of Piutes on the Humboldt will re
turn to the Agency; about 300 in all;
.making a total of 700 Indians on the
.Reserve. We informed Sarah that it
was a dangerous undertaking to have
the favares r turn, as onr people were
very mad and that the people openly
ihrcat that if an Indian is eauiiht oft of
flie Reserve that thy will bo shot.
.In fact, some have suirgpsted the idea
that about 300 people go down the
mad and turn the Yakima bands hack
and nt allow them to come here. She
said that her people all knew how the
whites feel and were afraid to come
back unless troops were stationed ne r
thera for protection nnd also to hold
hc bad Indians in bounds. "We sug
gested to her that it would be a good
thing if ehe would plead with, ami
urge, Gen. Iloward to reccominend
that a post be established some place
in the upper end of this valley. She
.Miid that Gen. Howard was a very close
friend of hers and that she would use
every means to have thoGen. do as we
suggested; that McDermitt was a use
less post and that Harney should be
maintained, or a new post established
some place near the Indian?. She says
that if she succeeds in getting her peo
pic back to the Reserve that they want
it distinctly understood that no other
tribes will be allowed to communicate
with them, as they brew trouble.
Sarah also says that tho war of 1878
wa planned three years before the out
break, and that Jerry Long knew it.
If that was the case it certainly takes
a great unjust blame oil of Maj. Rine
liart. She seems to think that the Govern
ment is to blame for the actions of the
Indians as they promise and i.ever ful
fill their promises.
One thing is certain, that is, that if
the Indians do return to th's county
and the troops arc removed, trouble is
sure to ensue, as the people here are
determined to protect themselves, ami
since Gan. McDowell has snid that he
.see3 no use io maintaining a post in a
country whore 248 white men can be
found to sign a petition to have the
;post retained, they propose io act in
conjunction with his remarks and pro
ject themselves, hence trouble -will
come of it. Sarah had better let "her
people" remain in the several local itios
-where they are or b& sure that troops
are stationed near the Reservation fr
the prevention of war before "her peo
plo" do return. She says ?ho is over
43 yeuM old aud that this is iu-r last
voik for thn Government as they have
mot kept their promises with her. and
as soon as she gets through with tins
job she is going east to Icoture.
