Dy the extinguishment ot the tribal KovernmonU March I, 1906, the po sltlon of principal chief o' each na tion is abolished. It will, therefore, be necessary that some provision be made for executing such deeds after that date, t is suggested that this be dono by continuing the offices of these chiefs for such purpose, as it will require several years to com plete payments before Issuance of the dcods. 'Provision should be made for con tinuing tribal schools and for the ed ucation of Indian children after Marcn 4. also permitting attendance therein of children of non-cltliens until other moans are provided. Under existing laws nil such schools must closo upon the extinguishment of tho tribal rov ernments.
