HOW TO TALK WITH STRANG E INDIANS.
A Slsii Laiumn!:e Which Is a cry Good
Medium for Exchanging Thought.
uWhat are the signs for a soldier,
a bear, a "black-tailed buck, aud a
This question was Bent from one of
ihe government oflices in Washington
to a government ollicer in Montana.
It was referred to Sheriff John J.
lloaly of Benton, who was considered
the best-informed white man in the
northwest concerning the universal
sign language of the Indians. When
Catholic missionaries were trying to
mnke a written language of the
lilackfoot tongue, in order to facili
tate the study of it and to give the
Uiblc to the tribes speaking that lan
guage, Healy said to one of the
Why not use the sign language
instead, so as to have a medium of
communication with the Indians of
The good man replied that the sign
language would be far better than
any other for meeting the wants of
the missionaries, but the great cost of
making a book in which it could be
studied made its use out of the ques
tion. "The government," said Mr. Healy,
"is making an effort to instruct those
whom it sends among the Indians in
the use of the sign language, and
that is why a request was sent for the
signs which stand for a soldier, a
boar, and oiherobjects. Tho vocabu
lary -if that word may be used here -is
sufficiently extensive to meet the
wants of those using it. A white man
and an Indian meeting in the wilder
ness, with no other means of commu
nication than the sign langnage,
would be able to tell each other
where they started from, where they
weic going, how long they had been
on tlie road, whom they had fallen in
with, what they did, whether they
found game plenty, what they shot,
Avhon they expected to reach their
destinations, and to hold just such
a chat as two Yankees would have
upon meeting under like circum
stances. The signs for things not
material for conditions, emotions,
attributes, and the like - are so ample
that one seldom has to hesitate for
the want of a sign. There are signs
for as many verb3 and qualifying
words as are needed in the uses to
which the language is put.
"Many of the signs are so peculiar
ly appropriate that a narrative in
which they are used becomes graphic
Here we have the story of a fight be
tween soldiers aud Sioux Indians.
The sign for a body of soldiers is tho
clenched fists held in front of you
"Kith the palms and doubled up fingers
facing ahead. The number of men is
indicated by a system of rapid enum
eration on the fingers. The open
hand drawn edgewise across the
throat tells that the enemy is a band
of Sioux, the size of ivhich is indica
ted. Raising and lowering the
clenched fists -while they are
hold in the position to repre
resont soldiers tells us that the ad
vance has begun. The march con
tinues till tho clapping of the Lands
says that shots were firecLand tells how
hotly the battle was waged. The fists
again come to the position for sold
iers, separate while marching, faco to
ward each other, and come together
with the face toward the sgeaker's
face. The red men have been sur
rounded and made prisoners. How
many of them were killed? one of
the listeners asks in sign, and the nar
rator indicates the number, and goes
on to tell how one of the chiefs was
wounded, and what was thought of
his chances for recover?'.
"An advantage possessed by the
s-ign language is that it can be used
by persons further apart than the
voices could reach. The signs need
ed for communication at a distance
are few aud of such a nature that
thev cannot well be misunderstood
A white man sees a parly of Indians
approaching, but a long way off. He
throws his blanket over the muzzlo of
his gun and waves it back and forth
m front of liim. That means 'stop
His next signal tells the Indians that
he wants one of them to advance
Ahead of the others and talk with
him. The blanket is thrown to the
ground, indicating a desire to sit to
gether on it and smoke the pipe of
Xeace. If the Indians are friendly,
thev send one of their number ahead
and the others come galloping after
hiin, firing their guns over the head
of the challenging party. This means
that thev are coming with empty
weapons. A good many white men
have lost their lives by thinking this
firing of guns meant hostility, re
turning the fire, and then being
killed by the angered red men. A
hostile approach is with the gun in
hand, ready to be brought instantly
to the position for firing.
'But these signals are hardly a
part of tnesigu langucge. Many of
the signs used in conversation are
similar to others, a slight deviation
giving a different meaning. While
there seems to be an element of pic
torial suggestiveness in most of the
.signs, a good many of them are whol
ly arbitrary. I have given some little
attention to the sigu language of the
deaf mutes, and 1 believe that the
eign langnage of the Indians is as
complete for their uses as is that of
the deaf mules for theirs. The deaf
mules have the advantage of being
able to resort to an alphabet when
it is not sufficient to communicate
ideas, but the exact words muet be
indicated. There are instance of a
sign having almost opposite meanings
in the two languages. Thus the deaf
mute sign for happiness is to bring
the right hand over the heart, and
making a patting motion, indicating
a quickening of the heart through
sueasure. Almost the same sign
would be understood to by an Indian
as meaning sickness short, labored
breathing. The Indian sign for fool
ishness is to go through the motion
of feeling around with the open
palm of your riglit band in an empty
skull held just above your own. The
same sign, with a little more wavy
motion of the hand, means drunken
ness. Every Indian understands
The People's Dollar.
The people's silver dollar has a hard
time of it. In so-called "financial
circles" it is traduced and maligned
most shamefully. Everybody seems
to be down on it except the working
and producing classes, who are well
satisfied with it
It is stated in the aforesaid "finan
cial circles'' that the president, the
secretary of the treasury and the
directors of the mint will recom
mend to the next congress that the
coinage of silver dollars le discon
tinued. Preparatory to this the news
papers of a certain class are losing
no opportunity to place in the most
prominent manner possible the enor
mous amount of silver dollars in the
United States treasury.
Statistics of the United States
mint, however, make quite a differ
ent showing. They show that while
millions of dollars in gold are paid
every month upon bonds, pension cer
tificates, salary accounts, etc, and
that while silver is practically locked
up in the government's vaults, ig
nored by those prejudiced against it,
and never sent out except on imper
ative demands, there is proportion
ately a large excess of gold on hand,
and that practically there is now but
a small proportion of the silver coin
age in the United States treasury
The report of the Treasury Depart
ment made on the 1st of November,
shows 250,000,000 in gold coin and
bullion in the vaults and onlv about
S30,000,000 in silver dollars and bul
lion. Commenting on the proposed ac
tion of the Treasury officials, in rec
ommending the discontinuance of the
coinage of the people's dollar, the
Minivy lleview very aptly says: "If
the Treasury officials are called upon
to recommend the suspension of sil
ver coinage on tho ground that the
currency now in the Treasury proves
that already more is coined than is
sufficient for the wants of the people,
consistency would demand with equal
force and for the same reasons, upon
the same grounds, that the coinage
of gold should also be suspended.
The fact that this discrimination is
made, and this battle waged constant
ly in one' direction proves that it is in
the interest of selfishness and gain at
the expense of industry."
