becomo too "sassy" to the agent, or,
asdid Uol. Sheehan, he may take his
tomahawk away from him. Micheiet.

Yes. Liie report that (Jus II Bcaulieii
has started another newspaper ven
ture, and that the paper has, been
Christ ianed and will -lieivat'ler be
known "as The Tomahawk.-is truly
true, and that it has conie with the
intention (if slaying here on i he White
Earth Reservation, and doing what it
can to bring to public notice the many
abuses that exist in headmluist rat ion
of Chippewa matters in theState. in
hopes that rhjs publicity might cheek
these tosomc extent. In doing this it
is not the intention oft lie TOMAHAWK
to accept I hi unsolicited advice of the
editorofthc Detroit Record who noven
has. ii'ia single instance, raised his voice
on behalf of 1 he members of this or
any other r.evrrvat ions, but on the con
lary he has always upheld those who
have oppressed hem.
So far as.t he Records reference to ]0\
Indian agent Sheehau's attempt to
suppress our first newspaper venture
is concerned, the latter found if rather
an expensive, undertaking as I lie re
cords in flic o"lliee of I he clerk of the'
I'ldfed Stales circuit-court nl St. Raul
will show, and the judgement en
tered in our favor then still stands as
an'endorsement of the position we
look relative to Chippewa matters.
Finally. We congratulate ourselves
though the stormy hours of misfortune
which fell to the lot of our early ven
tures, in the newspaper lino,-public
sentiment was awakened in behalf of
theChippewasof the While Karlh re
servation and which conl i ibuted so
materially in establishing the prin
ciple and demociatic fact and truth
fbat this reserval ion is apart and por
tion of the I'nil'ed Stales and the
Chippowns are human beings, eit.'i/.ens
of the Tinted Stales and entitled to
the protection of the law and 1 lie sac
rod const it ictional prero^it ive of the
enjoyment of "life, liberty and the pur
suit of happiness." likewise "the free
dom of speech, and of the press."
And it is the determination of the
TOMAHAWK to respect and uphold
these sacred principles, even if it has
to be a little "sassy" at hues to aeoom
plisli this end not withstanding the
very solicitous suggest ions and implied
threats of the record to the contrary.
