" INDIAN AFFAIRS.
Commissioner Drowning Submits .Ills Ant
nual Kcport No Outbreak Haa Occurred
Daring the Year.
Washington, Sept 29. Commis
sioner of Indjn Affairs Browning has
submitted his annual roport. He says
that with no outbreaks during the
year tho education and civilization pf
tho Indians has progressed and the
main effort now is and for years must
bo to get tho Indians on his allotment
so as to become self-supporting. The
Indians are becoming adepts
in handicrafts and received last
year in pay from the govern
ment over half a million dollars
for work done. The commissioner re
views the steps taken by congress to
extinguish the claim of the Ogden
Land Co. to the lands of the Seneca's
in Now York state. Tho question of
tbo fishery rights of the Yakima In
dians in the extromo northwest, is still
troublesome because of tho infringe
ments of tho whites upon, Indian rights
which have not bden successfully pro
tected. Education has progressed rap
idly in the government and industrial
training schools. There are enrolled
in all schools 23.S02 pupils. Tho com'
missioncr praises the work of tho flold
matrons. He suggests that tho com
missioner appointed to treat with sev
eral tribes of Indians for their lands
bo continued to clear up tho work oi
making sale of their lands. Nearly all
applications for Indians for exhibition
purposes have beon refused. Tho com
missioner lays stress upon tho need ol
legislation restraining tho salo of liq
uor in Indian reservations.
