The Indian office is finding it a very
di:f cult matter to prevent tho sale of
liquor to the Indians. The most difli
cult problem has leen presented in
recent court decisions in which it is
declared that Indians who ha.o taken
their lands in severalty are citizens of
tho United States and that it is no
longer contrary to law to sell liquor to
them. Two or three decisions havo
already l'en made to that effect, and
tho notice of .ludgo I'gorton of South
Dakota to tho Fnited States (hand
Jury, topiosent no more indictments
agaii st 1KM3 ns selling liquor to
Indians oi al'otted lands, looks as
if tho courts wero going to take
the view of tho case that no ro
strict'ons sho old be placed on Indian
citiens. In reports submitted by va
rious Indian agents to tho Commis
sioner of Indian Affairs, tho fa-'t is
pointed out that it is very difficult to
prevent the sale of li nor to Indians.
Not only on account of the fact that
tho courts havo recognized Indians,

work of engraving, including a por
