FRANCIS E. LUEPP SAYS
INDIANS SHOULD BEFREE
Commissioner Believes Indians Should
Be Classified and Later Given
Washington, Oct. 29.With a
view of the government cutting loose
from the Indians of this country at
the earliest practicable moment,
Francis E. Leupp, commissioner of
Indian affairs, has under considera"
tion a plan to take a census of the
Indians touching their educational
qualifications and the ability to
handle their own business affairs.
proposes to classify them into
three classes, the first class to be
composed of Indians who are com-
petent to run their own affairs,
the second to be composed of
those who know the meaning of a
contract and the third class to be
composed of those who are abso-
lutely incompetent to transact busi-
Mr. Leupp believes that the
government should cut entirely loose
from the first class of Indians.
doesn't believe they should be given
any protection from the government.
As to the second class of Indians,
he says the government probably
should prevent them from selling
their land, especially their home-
steads, but that it should let them
go ahead and make their own con-
tracts for leasing and the like then
if they get the worst of it let them
suffer. If they get their eye teeth
cut in a few deals they will learn to
be more careful in their business
transactions. The Indians of the
third class still would have to be
protected by the government until
they acquired a few rudiments of
business. Then they would be
turned loose to shift for themselves.
"The best thing that could happen
to a big portion of the Indians would
be to lose every dollar and every
foot of land they have," Commis-
sioner Leupp said. "Then they
would have to get down and work
for a living. That would make in-
dustrious citizens out of them. They
would be better off and so would

Alleged Stolen Funds Used to Run
New York, Oct 30Picore R!ve
alles, who for more than five years
has been a trusted cashier at the Cafe
Martin, has been held to the grand
Jury on the charge of embezzlement.
The Btory of Rlvesalles' alleged pecu
lations, as told by Martin, has
many peculiar features, the most re*
markable of which is the opening of a
rival establishment on the money Mr
Martin says he admitted having taken.
"We always looked upon Rlvesalles
as an honest man and have never had
the slightest trouble with his accounts
until this recent bank scare came on,"
aid Mr. Martin "You can imagine
our surprise when the investigation
developed that Rlvesalles had opened
a miniature Cafe Martin in West
Thirty-fourth street and was doing a
thriving business. He had fitted the
place out In every respect like our
place and had made it resemble it In
very possible way, even to the en
trance with the large sofa and marble
top tables in it It developed also
that, like his employers, he had an
account at the Lincoln Trust com
pany and did his own banking busi
ness at the same time a he did ours
"Then, too, we learned he purchased
all of the supplies for his cafe from
the same persons with whom we
traded and, of course, they thought,
aa he had been with us so long, that
his credit was perfectly good.
"What do you think of the nerve of
the man? Here for the last six
months he has been using our money
freely to conduct a rival establish
ment and had succeeded in keeping It
perfectly quiet until this recent bank

irrelevant and impertinent. Hartje
also filed a supplemental brief, with
eopies of the love letters alleged to

Tom Madine, one of the coachmen
co-respondents in the case. These
letters are alleged by Hartje to be of
an inoriminating character.
Mrs. Hartje stoutly denies that she
ever wrote Madine a letter. She con
tends that she is being harrassed by
paid servants In the employ of her

The "Rexall" Remedies are successful and this is why.
They were placed on the market three years ago. They have
scored already the record of the greatest success ever known in the
history of the drug business.
"Come and go popularity may arise from any number of Causes
(hullabaloo advertising among them) and may or may not be founded
on real worthiness. But the man, the plan, the idea, or the article that
truly succeeds, does so because he or it deserves to succeed, and
for no other reason.
The success of the "Rexall" Remedies is therefore the first evidence
of their real merit They sell because they cure, and they cure be-
cause each one of them is the best remedy known to medical science
for the particular ailment it is made to relieve.
There are nearly 200 remedies sold under the "Rexall" name,
each for one disease or one purpose. Each of these has been selected
by a committee of experts from among all other remedies of its
class, for manufacture and sale by The United Drug Company, a co-
operative association of leading American druggists.
