The Coeur d'Alene Reservation


"Open the Indian Reservations," The Morning Review, January 23, 1889, page 2

The Oregon Railway & Navigation Company desires to construct branch lines across the Coeur d'Alene reservation. The writer uses the occasion to argue that "These Indian reservations afford a resistance to which on-marching civilization and utilization should not be subjected." Claiming to be a "true friend" of the Indian, the author none the less disparages native Americans.
