NORTH YAKIMA, WASHINGTON. WEDNESDAY, SEPTKMIIKI. -Ji.. 1908.
There ure about 400 or 500 of the
Umatilla Indians In the valley em
ployed in the different yards. Over
the older members of the tribe the
Indian department has no jurisdic
tion, the minors only being wards of
the government. This makes it very
hard to keep the youngsters In school
as the parents are anxious to have
the children go with them on their

scholars presented themselves for
work, the rest being scattered in the
Yakima valley, near fort Spokane
and in Idaho. About twenty-five of
the red skinned truants have been
recovered bere and left for Pendle
ton Wednesday morning.
The local authorities, while they
grant that It. may he hard and an
noying to gather in and manage the
runaway children, claim that the dis
turbance created wherever Mr. Ed
wards or either of his assltsants,
Chrlstianson or Redford, appeared
was entirely unnecessary, as was his
display of force towards Officer Dodd,
and that they acted In an arrogant,
highhanded manner, when asked to
show their authority for their ac
tions. Mr. Edwards seemer deter
mined to carry the matter before the
fedora judge and have it fought to
the finish, as he claims that his work
has been hampered in this section b>
what he thinks unwarranted meddl
ing in his affairs by the local police.

A movement is on foot to organize
a social nnd athletic club composed
of the younger men of the city, whose
ages range from. 1G to 25 years.
Several well known boys and some of
the older ones are taking a deep in
terest in the matter, and there is said
to be little doubt about the club's
organization. One of the leaders in
the movenynt is Henry Miller, day
clerk at the Yakima hotel, who has
been an Officer and director in or
ganizations in other places similar to
the one proposed for Yakima. Mr,
Miller said last night:
"There are a large number of
the young men of the city who are
in favor of the formation of a society
of this kind. We want to organize
It and get it to going before the new
