    Excerpt from Report of the Commission: Appointed to Treat With the Sioux Indians for the Relinquishment of the Black Hills Great care should be taken in your interviews not only to secure proper and exact interpretations of the communications passing between you, but also to satisfy the Indians that their words are fairly conveyed in English. Rev. S. D. Himman, a member of your commission, is entirely competent to give an exact rendering both of the English and of the Sioux. It will be well also in every case to employ the services of such an interpreter as the Indians may select, so as to secure between the services of the two not only exactness but the entire confidence of the Indians. "In presenting this subject to the Indians they should first of all be assured of the kindly intentions of the President and the Government toward them. They should, if possible, be made to understand that this effort on the part of the Government to procure a portion of their country originated solely in a desire for the continuance of peace between them and the whites; that since the opinion that gold is to be found in the Black Hills has prevailed among the people it has been almost impossible to prevent white persons from entering their country, and that there is no little danger that, spite of all efforts to the contrary, some evilly-disposed persons will break through the line, and that conflict and blood will ensue. "You will also assure the Indians that it is not the wish of the Government to take from them any of their property or rights without returning a fair equivalent therefor, and that you have come, representing their Great Father, to fix upon an equivalent which shall be just both to them and to the white people. "You will be careful in your negotiations to keep constantly impressed upon the minds of the Indians that any agreement entered into at the council is to be brought back to the President, and by him to be submitted to Congress for consideration by that body; and that, until the contract has received the approval of Congress, it cannot be binding upon either party. "Respecting the right of way, this should be left to the discretion of the President, as to the routes to be selected, and as to any restrictions to be imposed upon parties using the routes. "The attention of the commission is invited to the tenth article of the treaty of 1868, in which provision is made for an appropriation for clothing and other beneficial purposes for the Sioux, for thirty years from the date of the treaty, and also for subsistence of meat and flour, for a period of four years. This latter provision has expired by treaty limitation, leaving the Sioux Nation dependent for the necessaries of life upon the annual charity of Congress. The appropriations for the last few years for this purpose of subsistence vary from $1,200,000 to $1,500,000 annually, and if it should be denied by Congress in any of the annual appropriation bills, these Indians must be left to great hardships, and to hunger verging upon starvation, unless they attempt to supply their wants by marauding among the settlers, which attempt would inevitably lead to a conflict with the military. This difference as to the length of time in which provision is made in their treaty for clothing and subsistence had not been well understood by them until the late visits of the delegations to this city, when they were assured of the facts by the President, and seem so to accept them as such. "The best interests of these Indians will require that any compensation made to them shall include this provision for subsistence in some form, and that in no case should it take the form of a cash annuity; but, so far as it shall be possible to gain their consent, shall be left in the discretion of the President to be used for their comfort
