Now Have Additional De

Tbe Sale of Allotments of Deceased
Indians Which Are Expected
to Efleclually Check the
Operations of Land
Additional safeguards against
the wiles of Ihe land speculator
have been placed around tbo allot
ments of deceafrd Indians in tbe
form of a new set nf rules govern
ing the sale of latide, which have
jupt been promulgated by the Sec
retary of the Interior.
The last Congress passed a bill
authorizing tho noire of deceased
Indian allottees to sell their lands
without awaiting the expiration of
the twenty one year period pre
scribed lor living Indians, It was
soon dieouvercd that agents for
syndicates were working among
the Indians and eecurlng their sig
natures to deeds to theee lands for
a nominal consideration. The de
partment issued a set of regulations
prescribing the manner in which
the lands shoul I bo sold. These
were found intuffioient to check
the tchemes and new regulations
have just been sent out.
Under the new regulations, such
land, wbeu offered fcr sale, shall
be appraised by tbe Indian agent,
or other authorized person. Then
publio notice ehr.ll be given for
ninety days, describing the land
to be sold.
At the expiration of tbe adver
tised timo the agent will receive
staled bids for the land and will
sell It to tho highest responsible
bidder, alwayB providing that tbe
amount bid shall not be less than
tho fixed appraiaed value. The
final conveyance of the lands shall
bo made only after the salo has
been approved by tbe interior do
The money considerations shall
