Wisdom of the Legislation in the
Morris Law Proved to Them in a
Practical WayThey Will Hold a
Rig Cquncil and Indorse the Second
Sale, to Be Held on the 28thEs-
timator Warren Gives Thein Good
Special to The Jourral.
Cass T^ke. Minn.. Dec. 10.Since the
.qalrt of Chippewa pine timber at the Cass
Lake land office last Saturday The Journal
correspondent made a personal visit to
Richards, the new townsite in the heart of
the national forest reserve among the
TVinnibigashish Indians, and Bena, where
are located the stib-Indian agency of the
AVinnibigashishand several Leech lake and
Bear Island reds, also the Indian school,
and had a talk with some of the more in
telligent of the Indians located there. The
information given by the correspondent
was the first intimation which the Indians
had that bids had been received at the
.sale offering $10 for Norway and $12 for
white pine.
Emissaries of certain interested persons
had been among them all the fall trying
to convince them that the carrying out of
the provisions of the Morris law would
make, paupers of every member of their
bands, and that the bids offered at the
sales would, on account of the require
ments to destroy the debris, be productive
of prices ranging no higher than $4 and $5
a thousand.
When the correspondent informed them
of the results of the sale the smiles and
gutteral grunts of satisfaction left no
doubt as to their feelings in the matter.
Emissaries Discredited.
Inquiry among the Indians elicited the
fact that "William Losh and Joe Nah-gon-
- ub, Indiana who have been in Washington
representing themselves as carrying put
the wishes of their red brethren by at
tempting to enjoin the secretary of the in
terior and prevent the sale of timber to
be made on the 28th, are members of the
WInnibigashlsh tribe. Their homes are in
the Cut Foot Sioux country, about twenty
miles north of Richards. The acting
Indian agent at Bena did not know that
the two Indians had left the reservation,
and none of the Indians knew that they
had gone to Washington, neither were any
of them made acquainted with their mis
sion. , .
It now develops that the reds were In
duced to leave the reservation and go to
Washington by a man who formerly acted
as sub-agent at Bena, and he was simply
the tool of certain interested persons who
wanted the sale held last Saturday, as
well as that advertised for the 28th, in
definitely postponed.
The Indians at Bena and vicinity are so
pleased that they intend to hold a council
this week, at which they will undoubtedly
take concerted action to go on record as
being decidedly in favor of the sale on
Dec 2S being carried out, and also as be
ing willing to await the action of the
secretary of the interior and others in
terested relative to the payment for the
lands included in the national forest re
serve and the ten sections reserved from
*al .uid,settlement WHSler -the .r.rosisiojjs
of the Morris law.
Estimator Warren's Opinion.
Ed IJ. Wrarren
method pursued under the Morris law is
the very best way to dispose of the reser
vation timber, as the bids submitted
brought more actual cash to the Indian
than anyone had dreamed of.
