IS 4 Acting commissioner Upshaw, of the Indian office, has issued the following letter of instructions to agents upon the various reservations, where tmder the existing laws and treaty stipulations, the allotment of lauds in severalty may be made: The business of allotting and patenting lands to Indians should he pressed with Die utmost vigor. The Indian is awakening to the importance of individual ownership in soil, and agents must foster and encourage this feeling by all the means in their power. The Indian asks for a "paper title" for his land, aud with that in his posession he has some guarantee that the land he improves will not he taken from him. The Indian must be impressed with Die fact that if they desire to make their stay on the reservation sure and stable they must take up the lands and get a regular title to them from the gyvern ment. Mr. Upshaw said that to-day many tribes are now as clamorous for allotments and patents as they were formerly tenacious of holding all the lands in common. * ''ll tf! m 13 $ i Bingiser left this territory $20,000 in debt, and tiiis campaign is going to break Dubois allup, not only financially, but mentally, morally and politically.
