Recommendations by Indian Commis sioner Jones For the Benefit of His Department. A Law for Compulsory Education of Indian Children Believed to be Necessary. Washington, Nov. 13.—The most in teresting part of Indian Commissioner Jones' annual report is the recommen dation that congress enact a law mak ing it compulsory for Indian children to attend school. It was mentioned some time ago that such a recommen dation would be made, and also that the commissioner would recommend that the department be given facilities for the development of the industrial training branch of the service. Both these recommendations are contained in the report, along with the further recommendation that some means be found to do away with the ration system, which the commis sioner says encourages idleness and destroys labor, promotes 'beggary and suppresses indeiendence. Referring to the compulsory education recom mendation, he says: "The passage of the law would mate rially simplify the situation and not conflict with the natural desires of 0 parent who was sufficiently educated to understand the needs of the rising generation. On the other hand, it will enable the commissioner of In dian affairs to extend the benefits of education to those Indian boys that they should depart from ancestral ways. The law would be broadly con strued taking into consideration the idiosyncracies of the particular tribe and the desire of the parents, but ever keeping in view the ultimate end of the policy—the civilization of the ris ing and future generations." Touching on the ration system, he says: "The gratuitous issue of rations, ex cept to the old and helpless, is detri mental to the Indian. It encourages idleness and destroys labor. It pro motes beggary and suppresses inde pendence. It perpetuates pauperism and stifles industry. It is an effectual barrier to the progress of the Indian toward civilization. Yet, objection able as it is, the system must continue as long as the present reservation sys tem continues. Until the Indians are placed in a position where the way is open before them to support them selves, they must be assisted. "As a method of aiding the deserv ing while they are learning the art of self-support, the ration system is com mendable. That Is its aim and object. The great evil lies in the gratuitous distribution to all alike. With the necessities of life assured with effort, the incentive to labor disappears and indolence, with its baleful influences reigns supreme. It is difficult to point out a complete remedy for the evils described, but as a beginning the in discriminate Issue of rations should 1900. stop at once—a somewhat difficult thing to accomplish as long as tribes are herded on reservations having everything in common. The old and helpless should be provided for, but with ies ect to the able-bodied, the policy of reducing rations and issuing th :o rnly for labor should be strictly enforced, while those who have been educated in Indian schools should be made to depend entirely upon thoi" own 1 esouices." The ration system extends mostly to the Iroians in the far western states: but outside of the Sioux tribe of North and South Dakota, daily ra tions are issued to the Arikaree, Gros I Ventre and Mandan tribe at Fort Ber-1 thold, Nori.11 Dakota, and to the Sioux at Yankton, S. D. Altogether 45.270 Indiana receive daily rations from the government, and of this number. 17,870 belong to the great Sioux nation, known as the Sioux of different tribes, located in North and South Dakota. These Indians are not included in the list, of Indians receiving daily rations, as their case is different from the others in that the rations and the con ditions under which they are to be given are specifically named in an agreement that obligates the United States to provide the Indians with sub sistence. Referring to Indian schools, the re port shows that in Minnesota there are government schools, 15 in North uakota, 00 in South Dakota, 10 in Wis consin and 1 in Iowa. Contracts for the education of In dian children were made with the management of 22 public schools for white children. The government has charge of 2 contract schools in Minne sota, 2 in Wisconsin, 1 in North Da kota and 2 in South Dakota. There are 2 mission schools in North Dakota and 7 in South Dakota. During the past year a new brick school was erected at Morris, Minn., and three boarding schools were erected on the Chippewa reservation. An addition was built to the school at Oneida, Wis, Contracts have been let for two buildings at Pipestone, Minn., and for an Indian training school at Hayward, Wis. Allotments and patents of land to Indians were made as follows: Chip pewas of Lake Superior, on the Bad River reservation, Wisconsin, 135 Chippewas of Lake Superior, 011 the Lac du Flambeau reservation, Wis consin. 152 Chippewas of the Missis sippi, on Deer Creek reservation, Min nesota. 4 Sioux of the Devils Lake reservation. North Dakota, 3. Allotments were approved as fol lows: Fort Berthold' reservation, i.orth Dakota, 040 Sioux of the Rose bud reservation, South Dakota, (in cluding 400 previously approved, which have been revised under act of March 3, 1800), 3.107.

The report of the last census gives us population and more votes. This will give North Dakota another congressman, in all probabil ity, in the next congress. The two members will be elected at large, bur after the legislature of 1H02 the state may be divided into two districts. How shall it be done—north and south or east and west? There is plenty of time to consider it. Some suggest a line of division east and west on the north line of Cass—others want the state divided north and south along the James River valley.
