Full Text of the President's Thanks giving Proclamation Puyallup Indian Reservation. It waa expected that the vexed ques tions rearardins tha PuvalluD Indian . reservation at Tacoma would be settled by the commission which waa sent out there by an act of the last Congress, but it seems that this commission has not done what they were expected to do, and the question at issue is aa far from settlement as before. The Indiana have bargained away some of their most val uable lands, rneir lands are neetiea for the development of Tacoma as a city, and they are useless to the Indians, ex cept for what they can get for them. The matter of the individual and tribal riahta of the Indians was supposed to be determined by the commission, also the rights of the men who have bargained with the Indians for their lands, but the commission's report, now with the Secretary, is lar from eatisiactory, ana will be little or no help in aiding him to make a recommendation to Congress. The Puyallup matter will have to bs fought all over again tins winter. The full textof the President's thanks giving proclamation ia aa follows: It is a very giaa inoiaeni to me marvelous prosperity which baa crowned the year now drawing to a close that its helpful and reassuring touch ha been felt by all the people. It haa been as wide ait our country, and so special that every borne has felt its influence, it la too great to be the work of rra.'d powers and toe particular to be the device of his mind. To God, the beneficent and allwise, who makes the labors of men to bs fruitful, redeems their losses by his erace, and the -measure of his giving is is aa much beyond the thoughts of man aa it is beyond his desert, the praise and gratitude of the people oi this favored nation are due.
