'Jt Is reported that Gus. H. Beau
lieu will s(H)i) trv hissfCenti newspaper
veuturp at 'White Earth. The-pa per. it
is said, will be known as The Toma-
hawk."' We would saKKost that litis bo
a little more careful this time, and not
become.too "sassy? to the UK't'iit. or,
asdiclCoi. SVieiluui, he may take,his
tomahawk away .from 1dm. Mielieiet,
like Hheehau, is a man who tfoesthings
and soniei imes lie does them Quickly.
Yes, the report that (his ft Beaulieu
has started another nevvsjiapei' ven
ture, and that the paper has.been
chrisliaued and will -hereafter be
known "as The Touiahawk,_is truly
true, and that it lias come with the
intention til' si ayiny here on 1 he White
Earth Reservation, and doing what it
can to bring to publit notice the many
abuses that exist in the adntinistrat ion
of Chippewa matters in the *tate. in
hopes Uiat this publicity might elitek
these to some extent, in loingtlii it
is not the intention of the TOMAHAWK
to accept the unsolicited advice of the
editorol'tlieDetroit Record who neven
has, in a single instance, raised his voice
on behalf of the members of this or
any other r-verv itions. but on the con
lary he has always upheld those who
have oppressed them.-.
So far as.t he 'Records reference to E\
Indian agent -Shee.hau's at tempi to
suppress our first, newspaper venture
js concernetl, the. latter found it rathet
an pensive undertaking'as the i'-
eords in .'the eTftiee of the clerk of tin
t'nited Slates circuit couri at 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 eongral ulate oursehes
though the stormy hours of misfortune
which fell to the lot of our early ven
tures, in the newspaper line," public
sentiment was awakened in behalf of
the"('hippewasof the White Knrfh re
servation and which' contributed so
materially in establishing the prin
ciple ami democratic fact and truth
that, this reservation is apart and por
tion of .the United States and the
Chippewas are human beings, ciUi/.ens
of the t'nited States and entitled to
the protection of the law and the sa'
red.constitutional prerogative of- the
enjoyment of "life, liberty and the pur
suit of happiness,'* likewise "the free
dom of spe.eci 1 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 times to accom
plish this end not withstanding the
very solicitous suggest ions and implied
threats of the record to the contrary.
REORGANIZATION OF THE
