The Hon. Commissioner of In
dian Affairs seems to have keyed
up his fanatical, sinn-finn temper
to the pitch of frenzy in his
vain effort to abase and discredit
the splendid efficiency and irre
pressible spirit of the members of
the General Council, Minnesota
Chippewa Indians, and their able
and qualified legal representative,
and in this sinister purpose the
Indian Bureau seems to enjoy the
unequivocal sanction of the pres
ent administration. In fact there
is no use in denying that the
Bureau and its menial advocates
are determined to "kill" the Gen
eral Council and iCs legaf repre
sentative, through fair means or
foul, so that it can more readily
exercise its own free will and
autociatic sway over the affairs,
especially the tribal trust funds,
of the Minnesota Chippewas and
fritter away with lavish extrava
gance the last remaining vestage
of a nation's heritage.
Right here it may be interesting
to know that the large majority,
90 per cent of the Minnesota Chip
pewa Indians, members of the
General Council, are the proud
descendants of a dual stock of
Native and Caucasian ancestry.
On the native side there are num
bered the most doughty of Al
gonquian nobility while on the
Caucasian side there are numbered
an equally sturdy galaxy of invin
cible leaders, statesmen and war
riors many of them fonght under
the banners of the invincible
Napoleon the irrespressible Crom
well participated in the heroic
struggle of the Revolutionary war
with Washington for liberty and
freedom who fought OL the right
side of the house during the war
of 1812 who took part in the
hotly contested battles of the
Wilderness and Gettysburg and
marched with Sherman .to the sea
not a few took part in the Spanish
war and during the late World
war a large number were among

Americans who fought and dis

In conclusion it may be well to
state that the General Council,
Minnesota Chippewas, is not dead
nor dying, is not intending to die
but is elegantly alive and, as in the
past, it will continue to exercise
its critical dilhgence and watchfuj
care over the general interests of
the Minnesota Chippewas, not
withstanding the maudlin threats
of nefarious influences to the con
trary. Furthermore, we will
wager that the General Council,
Minnesota Chippewas, likewise the
policy which it advocates, will live
and flourish long after the present
personnel of the Indian Bureau
