HAIL ADVENT OF WHITE MAN INDIANS ON STANDING ROCK RESERVATION PREPARING FOR WHITE INVASION EVENT LOOKED FORWARD TO WITH COMPLACENCY BY RED MEN. Standing Rock Agency, N. D. March 13.—The 5,000 Sioux who get their mail and magazines at this agency— where they were wont to draw ra tions—are spending their last winter, as segregated people, in making plans for the reception of the white inva sion of the reservation next summer or fall when the immense tract—near ly 3,000,000 acres, including the Chey enne river reservation will be thrown open for settlement. Nearly all the Indians here have relatives on the lower Missouri river reservations which have already been opened and they are quite wise to what is coming of the whites means to them. They now subsist them selves by freighting for the govern ment and for private parties, by chop ping wood and (by doing such other chores as they can get paid for, but they are not without information as to the possibilities of the immediate future when the greater part of their inheritance will be given to whites. They expect and will probably get their share of the money that will be brought in by the whites. They have developed a good deal of business sense they are sons of the men woo fought the best soldiers in the United States up to the last quarter of the last century. With the passing of Sitting Bull, Gall, Rain in-the-Face and the other chiefs who gained national fame on the battle field orJjl»ut the icouncil fires there passed 4»P last vestige of savagry from theie Rieople and they came to know they must live on terms with, the whfite man and get their share of the fruits of the earth by the sweat of their brows. They did not take to sweating rapidly, but the rising generation retains a good share of the high order of intelligence wiich for so long distinguished the Teton Sioux, That's the whole separator story in a "nut shell" and the reason for the now nearly universal sale of De LAVEL separat ors.

Solid In Bismarck by Wolbert Hardw.Co. ^^^^S^^^^^M^j^^S^MMmm^^^^^^ i@i^^fff@€^ after the other .plains Indians had laid down before the tide of white pro gress and the intelligence is being applied to questions of ways and means. Here at the agency they gather in groups, and discuss the prospects* Over yonder, just outside the aban doned post of Fort Yates, Sitting Bull lies at rest, but he is not more dead than the spirit he strove to keep alive. These Indians at the agency talk of where the towns will be and what they may get out of the rush for claims in the ceded portions of the reservations. Down on the Grand river, where Sitting Bull danced the Ghost dance, and died in avowing his independence of control, his surviving relatives and fellows of the Hunkapapas hold meet ings in the log houses which have tak en the place of the tepees. Those meetings bring, out quite as much oratory was exhibited when, twen years ago, the elders were pro testing against making any treaty with the government for the cession of their lands. John Grass, the chief justice of the Sioux Indians, now an old man, is much sought for advice, but he is content to let things go he has long foreseen the coming of the white man and he is not disturb ed. He has his farm and he wants nothing more. There is every evidence that the white invasion will be welcomed with a tgreat deal of cordiality. The In dians come in anxious for some scrap of information that comes from Wash ington regarding the opening of the reservations and between them and the great number of enquirers who write Post Trader P. B. Wickham or J. M. Carrignan—Jboth of whom have' been on the reservation for many years—these two reservation mag nates have their hands full. The Indians have come to under stand that the number of whites who wil] come to the opening exceeds their imagination to estimate, it takes rather a highly educated Indian to conceive of what a couple of hundred thousand means. But this friendly invasion is being looked forward to with right good will by the red men and the more shrewd of the Indians have made elaborate plans for provid ing food and shelter for the invaders. It is not improbable that when the settlers come in for the drawing in the fall of the year they will be priv ileged to buy hot wienerworsts from dusky persons whose fathers were much handier with the scalping knives than with the toasting fork.

Our native fruit trees and bushes and some hardy cultivated sorts may be found loaded with fruit every year all over the Dakotas, in most every conceivable location and un der a variety of conditions. The owners of the farms on w.iich these trees are growing are what I call well sexed, well mated men and women. Their children please our sense of seeing ana hearing, as their fruit pleases our sense of taste. When you see their homes you begin to love and honor the owners before you meet them. Not the loaded fruit tree, but everything about the place is in repair and saows thrift and success. No one is rushing about. They seem to be acomplishing their work with ease and have plenty of leisure mixed in with their work. can you find where a mo ment's labor has t»een wasted. How have they acomplisoed all this with this small expenditure of money, time and labor? By thought and study thoroughly studying their business, and laying their plans to the most minute details before •be ginning action. There could be only success. In their plans all adverse conditions were met and overcome. & ."•3s -I-'. v"^•^'•V•^l'•"4fe• *i'."!&'•*, H.absolute FRANK HITCHCOCK Frank H.

Mr. Hitchcock is consequently one of the best known men in the United States He has entered on his future duties as wel'l prepared as possibe, since he held the position of first assistant postmaster general under Roosevelt, only resigning to conduct the Taft campaigns. He was born in Amherst, •fSey started at the right time and in the right place, and used the right material. All their labor was done at the right time, which insures suc cess. They were not like the black smith who put so many irons in the fire he burned some of them before he could sucessiully shape them. On adjoining farms in the same location and where the same condi tions are to eb met and overcome, may be found trees and bushes that have been there for years, and nev er borne any fruit, owned by men and women who have expended any between twenty and one hun dred dollars to find out they could not raise fruit in the Dakotas. These people, although they have reached the physical maturity of men and women, are still children in intellect, and have not yet reached the point of mental development and maturity where ambition to accom plish something and excell takes the place of play. They are simply wait ing hoping to become men and wo men some day. They may, but for the present they have no ambition only to get something to eat and the necessities of life. These people are out of their sphere. They should dwell in the lazy tropics where they need neither clothes nor shelter. Where fruit grows without I the assistance and labor of man. I F. R. SIMONS.
