Allotment Fight on Bad
River Reservation Tem
The quarter of a century fight the department of commerce needs
claims of the outs to include them
among those entitled to allotments.
When the lands were to be di
vided between members- of the
tribe, other Indians from other
reservations began to flock to thethe
Bad River reservation, some of
them it is alleged, having been
allotted already on other reserva
tions, and others not having been
allotted anywhere, but willing to
share the Bad River lands with
those who had been born there.
After attempts to divide the lands,
Dr. Wooster of Washington was
placed at the head of a commis
sion which included several In
dians. After long hearings, what
was believed to be a "final'" allot
ment was made, each allottee re
ceiving about sixty acres. A re
hearing was subsequently ha'd,
when a few changes were made.
About a mnth ago a committee
representing the outs wefat to
Washington, in which Henry
Holliday of the Twin Ports ap
peared to be the chief spokesman,
closely followed by WilliamObern.
representing the "ins:" Holliday
himself came from L'Anes, Mich.,
but received no allotment there.
He represented at the Washington
hearing about twenty who, it is
claimed, had a fair chance' to getbusiness
ou the roll'in'case of a rehearing,
and others who had less substantial
claims. The Indian affairs sub
committee took the grouurl that if
this final allotment should be re
opened, it would furnish a pre
cedent that would be followed all
over "the West. Mr. Holliday
pointed out that some Indians had
come in .from outside, and had
received allotments on Bad River,
but the committee decided that
even though then had benn some
fraudulent claims this does not
warrant granting others. The
outs asked the right to bring the
matter before the United States
court of claims, in which some of
them have been led to believe
they stand a chance of collecting
millions of dollars from the gov
