ON THE BORDERS OF SAVAGERY,
The Indian is standing in the open
door between savagery and civiliza
tion. The government and the olli
cials are trying to pull him through
into the better life and clearer at
mosphere of good citizenship and the
whisky peddler is pulling him back
ward into barbarism.
The contact with good Influences,
the result of schools, training, moral
advancement and other elevating ten
dencies are all destroyed by the sel
fish mercenary who sells an Indian
enough whisky for 25 cents to cause
untold damage. This man is more
dangerous than the Indian. Ho is
more to bo feared in society. He
knows that the weakness of the In
dian is a profitable source of revenue
and he takes advantage of It.
What cares he for the community?
What to him, Is good order, or good
citizenship? What to him, the efforts
of officials and governments to better
the moral conditions?
Money is his God and to get money
his creed. Ho willfully endangers the
community, in his trade. He tears
down faster than the civilizing influ
ences of the land can possibly build
up. He is like the manufacturer of
the wooden idol, who defies the com
munity, laughs in the face of the of
ficial and collects a tribute from the
unthinking race that appeals to the
white man for enlightenment instead
