The receipt is teknpwjedged. .oj^
your letter of October*, 1322, re
questing information as to hunting
and uishing rights of the Indians
in the State of Minnesota.
With reference to the righvs
of the Indians to hunt and fish on
tends under the complete jurisdic
tion of the State, you are advised
that it has been held by the (Courts
that tribal Indians are subject to
the fish and game Iawsof the State
as to lands ceded by the tribe by
treaty and which are not within
the Indian reservations, notwith
standing the reservation of hunt
ing and fishing rights which may
have been contained in such treaty.
If non-citizen Indiar.s go outside
the lioundaries of their own reser
vations to bunt and fish, it will be
necessary for them to comply with
the laws enacted by the State gov
erning such matters. I has been
held that hunting and fishing upon
land within the jurisdiction of the
State is a police power for the
State to administer. However, it
is not necessary that non-citizen
Indians have a State hunting li
cense when hunting within the
boundaries of their own reserva
tions and the game- is for their
own use. This Office urges all the
Indians to observe, rfs nearly as
possible, the State regulations as
to the amount of game taken, etc.,
in order that there may not be an
unnecessary destruction of game
If you and your husband de
sire to hunt and fish on lands un
der the complete jurisdiction of
the State of Minnesota, it will be
necessary for yon to comply with
all the laws passed by that State
coveripg hunting and fishing with
in its limits.

To the Voters of
The charge that I am a wom
an is being extensively used against
me in this campaign. I must plead
guilty, but I was created thus.
The spirit of Americanism does
not contemplate a distinction be
tween man and woman with refer
to duties and privileges under
government. I am an Ameri
can citizen and have the privilege
of paying taxes and supporting
our government in as many ways
at- if I were a man.
As ray testimonials show I have
the ability, and business experience
necessary for running the office to
which I aspire. Insofar as I have
been able to ascertain I have a
longer previous business experi
ence than anyone who has been
elected auditor of Becker County.
I may not be your choice, but I
ask you as true Americans to be
fair and not register your vote
against me on the plea that I am a
woman. Show me the simple
justice for which America stands.
