r'ricnJ.s dejoanded f me that, in th
e.ven'i f uiy election, I should try to
pr cure "or them from the U. S. Gov
errua'Mt Nome indemnification for the
1jss--s :iu;y had smtained at the hand.s
of the Indians. In a speech which I
made at. J ickfOuville, 1 ph-dged myself
to do all in lay power for the relief of
those people. I stated that their :laiuis
fur indemniiication were meritorious and
just, anJ referred to the act of Congress
which recognized lhat clitracter of
claims, and stated that ud:mi ""aer
principles of right and justice that lov
alty to the GovernuiPut and p''otect;ou
of the citizens v. ere recipr-c d obliga
tions and duties. I sta'ijd th it the Gov
ernment did not hold the Indian Lr.bcs
to be foreign nations; but treated the n
as their wards and protected theui
against any attempts of the citizens to
hold them responsible, legally cr other
wise, for any wrongs they might perpe
trate. In pursuance of this solemn
pledge, I did, in a few days after taking
my seat in Congress, introi uce a bill to
provide for ascertaining the losses sus
tained by citizens of Southern Oregon
and Northern California by reason of In
dian depredations in the yeais 1872-73.
The bill was referred to the Committee
on Indian affairs, and after much labor
I succeeded in obtaining from that com
mittee a unanimously favorable repor.
On the 13th of February, 187-1, my bill
came In-fore the1 House, and was under
consideration in' committee of the whole.
Mr. Averill a Republic n member from
Minnesota, was Chairman of the Com
mittee on Iudiau Aifair.s, and a? such,
had charge of th's bid, and advocated its
passige. The debate is too leng'hy, per
haps, for you to publish. Suffice to say,
that I occupied all the time the rules of
the House allowed in advocating its pas
sage. Gen. John Peter Cluer Shank, a
long-haired specimen of Republican hu
manity from Indiana, antagonized the
bill, and uttered charges against Ben
Wright and other frontiermcn, as tlie
cause jot the Modoc outbreak, and in,
his charges quoted many of Meaeham's
iien. I got an extension of time to re
ply to Shanks, and the debate became
warm nnd interesting. I had read to
Modoc Indian ' On the contrary, the
United St ttes was at peace with the Mo
doc Indians in a national sense. So th
argument does not apply that, inasmuch
that these Indians were a cojjmon ene
my, compensation cannot be made for
their depredations. What do the stat
utes of the United Stites prov.de on
this subject Is there ro uiode known
to the law under the Constitution by
which citizens of the United States shall
have a remedy for los:;es which they sus
tain and for injuries which they suffer
at the hands of Indians in charge of the
Government 1 We cannot apply to the
, I Modoc Indians the formula of a nation-
il . .i
ahty, for they are not a nation; we can
not pursue them in a court of justice,
jt'or there is no process known to law by
which they can be reached there; but the
statutes of the United States have sub
stantially provided a mode of relief, and
the provisions of this bill are but a mod
ification , of what is provided by the
statutes. It is not different in principle.
By the act of 1802, the intercourse act-
with the Indian tribes, it is expressly
provided that when any member of an
Indian tribe in amity with the United
States, in his own country commits any
depredation upon the person or property
of any citizen of the United States who
may lawfully be in that country, then
reparation therefor shall be made by the
. Ui-ited States.
incorporated in; the intercourse act of
of the Southern and. extreme Western
members, including Rir.sier, of South
Carolinia, and Rapier, of Alabama. . Even
th much abused negroes entertained a
higher sense of justice and had more
ylpa' hy f or the people of the frontier
than the Rev. J. A. Garfield.
If you desire to pursue this subject or
test my accuracy of statement, I refer
you to the officially reported debate, Con
gressional Record, "Vol. 2, part 2, 1st ses
sion 43d Congress, page 1485.

Eds. Leader On the evening of July
1863 began the movement in the late
civil war which was pregnant with result
affecting the Union cause and the perma

evening Gen. Hancock concentrated his
force around the bights of Gettysburg

less remedy can be obtained in some
way through the Congress of the United
States, then there can b no remedy for
citizens in that condition. The courts
are closed to them, and except through
the remedies- which ('onress may fur

th-nr property and in their rights. If
the humblest citizen of the United States

Mr. Lowe, a Republican member from
Ivans is, and Mr. Luttrell fro. n Califor
nia. Near the close of the debate Mr.
Garfield participated and spoke as fol
iws: Mr. Garfield I should have no ob
jection f at all to the. appointment ot a
uo. omission, if the eommis3ion and the
work it might do would bring any reso
lution on which Congress would be usi
ified in giving relief. Suppose a com
mission should be appointed aud its ex
penses paid, and its report made; what
will we do with the report? Th se out
rages and deprecations were committed
by one of two classes of persons; either
by pi ivate robbers and murderers, or I y
public enemies. If bv private ruunler
ers, then who in this House propo: 63 to
adopt the principle that Congress shall
pay the damages inflicted ?
When Buffalo was burned to ashes by
the enemy in the war of 1812 with
Great Britain, the case was laid before
Congress, and that was probably the
strongest ever - pp-sented.
After a full and able discussion, Con
gress considered the laws of war did not
sustain a demand for payment for rav
ages by the common enemy.
I move to strike out the enactins clauss
ia the bill
Mr. Towne, ot -Kansas, said: I beg
the indulgence of the committee of the
whole for a few minutes, in order that
I may state what the committee on In
dian Affairs believe to be the right of
public pel :y rid the ground of public
! e l . ... J .t..;i
Here the hammer fell.
Mr. Garfield: I move to strike out the
enacting clause in 4he bill.
The Chairman: That is not debata
ble. The question was taken, nnd upon a
division there were: Ayes, 85; uay-, 64.
Before the result was announced Mr.
Nesmith called for tellers.
Mr. Garfield and Mr. Averill were ap
pointed, and the tellers reported that
there were: Ayes, 79; nays, 68.
The committee arose and reported to
the House, and Mr. Garfield moved that
the House agree to the report of the
committee. ' ,
Mr. Nesmith called for the yeas and
nays, and there wcro 105 yeas and 85
nays, 09 being a "osent or not voting.
Thus as you will observe from the
quotations that I have, made from the
official report of the debate, Mr. Garfield
did, in a cold-blooded aud ruthless man
ner, deny justice to the sufferers by the
Modoc outbreak. Mr. Garfield was a
leader of the House, and chairman of one
of its most important committees. He
made no argument worthy of name
against my bill, and replied to none, but
resorted to a mere technicality and by
the brute force of numbers cut off the
debate, and defeated as just and meritor
ious a measure as was ever brought be
fore any legislative body. I have never,
forgiven him for the act, and I hope that
the honest votors ii Oregon will act for
process of the courts lien he took c jiu
uiand in the south ; roves that hi is
above inaugurating any dictatorship.
Hancock would not likely be -( "in" the
