Description ContinuedNewspaper story describes a recent murder, the latest in a chain of six revenge killings. George Winter's written commentary agrees that Indians have been guilty of horrible tortures and murders of white settlers, but whites have also done equally awful things. The "law of retaliation" is well established among the Indians, but a kind of court may rule that his life not be taken in revenge, if he can placate the relatives of the deceased with sufficient presents.
SubjectsIndians of North America
