TOTS SHOUTING
FOR PRESIDENT
Washington, March 17. President

For Indians At
Chiefs Funeral
impressive Services Over Body
of Hollow Horn Bear Once
Famous Sioux Warrior
Washington, March 17 Hollow Horn
Bear, tribal chief of the Sioux, has
started on his last trip toward the
setting sun following the reading of
the Catholic service over his body at
St. Paul's Catholic Church in the pres
ence of a. dozen Indian chiefs in full
regalia and three thousand deeply in
terested spectators.
The chief of the Blackfoot, Crow
and Sioux tribes', in paint and feath
ers, followed the casket with bowed
heads and seemed deeply impressed by
the death of the one who had march
ed at their head two weeks ago at
the inauguration of a new white fa
ther, j
The funeral services were conducted
by Rev. William H. Ketcham, director
of the Bureau of Indian Affairs and
a member of the government Board of
Indian Missions. He was assisted by
Dr. Charles W. Currier, assistant di
rector. Father Ketcham said Hollow Horn
Bear had tried "to lead a good Christ
ian life and used his influence among
the Indians to promote the observance
of religion. , A week ago Sunday with
a. number of companions he attended
St. Paul's church on his way to visit
the Zoological Park, and arriving too
late for that service he Induced his
compaiions to remain over for the
next, so as not to miss mass. He re
ceived the sacraments f early in Lent
and also on his death bed. In ad
dressing the large congregation Fa
ther Currier urged them all to use
their influence for fair treatment of
the rapidly disappes ' -ed men.
"This is not a moment for recrimin
ation," he said. "The hatchet is bur
ied today. We forget past enmities.
But if ever there was a time for com
punction and contrition of a practical
sort it is this.
"Gather around this bier, ye perse
cutors of the red man, and shed tears.
There are few stories in the world's
history of persecution and injustice
darker than the Btory of our treat
ment Of the American Indian, the orig
inal American."
Father Ketcham praised the Indian
race for their characteristics of being
intrepid in danger, stoics in enduring
pain and fearless in battle. The greed
of gold led to much Injustice toward
the Indians in the past, as It is now
causing atrocities among the Put
mayos in Brazil, he said.
The body of Hollow Horn Bear, ac
companied by Chief Johnny Green, of
the Sioux, will be taken to Crookston,
Neb., and thence across the country
to the Rosebud Indian, Reservation, in
South Dakota.
Among the chiefs who formed a
guard of honor for the body yesterday
afternoon were Johnny Green, Sioux;
Mountain Chief, Plenty Coups, Little
Dog and Curly Bear, of the Black-
feet tribe, and White Man Runs Him
and Medicine Crow, of the Crow
tribe.
CHTEP PLENTY COUPS
SUCCEEDS HOLLOW HORN
AND WILL CONTINUE WORK
Washington, March 17 Chief Plenty
Coups, of the Crow tribe, will assume
the place of leader of hie people in
their councils with the Great White
Father and will continue the work
that was carried on by Hollow Horn
Bear, the Sioux chief "whose funeral
was held yesterday. This practically
has been decided upon and a meet
ing of the Black Hills council will be
held in the immediate future to ratify
the- choice.
The Indians long have sought to
commit the government to the policy
of appointing a red man as Indian
commissioner in the department of the
interior. They urge the appointment
of Thomas L. Sloan, one of their race,
and said to be a lawyer of ability.

CAN'T LOVE MANILA
GIRLS IN PUBLIC
Washington, March 17 No more can
the American fighting man in Manila
walk hand in hand in the moonlight
with hie brown, skinned, starry eyed
sweetheart, for the war department
learned today that Col. George K.
Hunter of the Seventh cavalry has is
sued an order prohibiting the men of
the Manila garrison from appearing in
public with native women. The or
der was imperative and read:
. "Members of this command are here
by forbidden to be seen in public in
the company of native women,except
those men who are married to such
women." '
An explanation of the reasons gov
erning the issue of the order did not
accompany the report. It is under
stood, however, that the prohibition
will not prevent the men who have
lost their hearts to the brown girls
from courting them in the privacy of
their homes.

ALLIES TERMS
INADMISSIBLE
Berlin, March 17. The European
powers will, toward the end of this
week. Inform the Balkan allies that
their suggested terms put forward as
a basis for negotiations for peace with
Turkey are inadmissable and that the
European nations will decline to sub
mit them to Turkey.
The draft of the note drawn up by
the ambassadors in London at their
last conference is considered by the
German foreign office as well as in
the other European capitals and is to
be handed to the allies after it has
been approved by a further confer
ence in London on Wednesday.
The note will suggest the indispen
sibiiity of a modification of the allies'
demands.
Here as well as in London the
necessity for the conclusion of peace
is strongly urged.
A Reasonable Plea
For The Stomach
If Your Stomach Is Lacking In Diges
tive Power, Why Not Help the
Stomach Do Its Work?
Not with drugs, taut with a rein
forcement of digestive agents, such as
are naturally at work in the stomach.
Scientific analysis shows that diges
tion requires pepsin, nitrogenous fer
ments, and the secretion of hydroch
loric acid. When your food fails to
digest, it is proof positive that some
of these agents are lacking in your
digestive apparatus.
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets contain
nothing but these natural elements
necessary to digestion and when placed
at work in the weak stomach and
small intestines, supply what these or
gans need. They stimulate the gastric
glands and gradually bring the diges
tive organs back to their normal con
dition. Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets have been
subjected to critical chemical tests at
home and abroad and are found to
contain nothing but natural diges
tives. Chemical Laboratory. Telegraphic
address, "Diffindo," London. Tele
phone No. 11029 Central. 20 Cullum

London, 9th Aug., 1905.
I have analyzed most carefully a
box of Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets
(which I bought myself at a city
chemist's shop for the purpose,) man
ufactured by the F. A. Stuart Co., 86
Clerkenwell Road, London, E. C, and
have to report that I cannot find any
trace of vegetable or mineral poisons.
Knowing the ingredients of the tab
lets, I am of opinion that they are ad
mirably adaptable for the purpose for
which they are inteded. (Signed)
John R. Brooke, F. I. C, F. C. S.
There is no secret in the prepara
tion of Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets.
Their composition is commonly known
among physicians. They are the most
popular of all remedies for indiges
tion, dyspepsia, water brash, insom
nia, loss of appetite, melancholia, con
stipation, dysentery and kindred dis
eases originating from improper dis
solution and assimilation of foods, be
cause they are thoroughly reliable and
harmless to man or child.
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets are at
once a safe and powerful remedy.
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets will digest
your food for you when your stomach
can't.
