['It h' crossed out] An instructive comparison can be
drawn ^in these lines between the ['Aboriginal' crossed out] North American Indians
and the Australian savage.
['It is well remarked by Mr' crossed out] Mr F^rank W Hodge has
made some remarks ['what' crossed out] as to the effect of civilization
upon the North Amer Tribes (1). To the aboriginal
inhabitant of the [current?] civilization [and all?] the
overturning of his ancient form of government, the abolition
of many of his social usage, the readjustment of his idea
of property and personal rights and change of occupation, ...
It is not surprising that it has been a slow and
difficult process for the aborigines to accept and
and conform to such radical changes of
organisation, customs and beliefs as are
required by civilization. Yet many have done
so - - - - wherein the environment permits, the
employments of the white race are now those of
the Indian. Already the Indian is to be found tilling
his farm, plying the trade, employed in the
railroad, working in mines and logging
camps and holding positions of trust in [ba..ik]
and mercantile business."
The American Indians may be considered to have stood
in an intermediate [condition?] of culture between the Australian
savage and the white man.
