AGENT MFATRIDGE GAVE NEW KITING YESTERDAY Inriiiin CnpatU of Handling Own Fi nancial Affairs May do so Spend thrifts Will lo Held In Cite as in the Past Onlor Made at Agent's Request. Tvirri'Iv throurh the efforts of Ma Jor A. E. McMatrldge, agent upon the reservation, the government will henceforth allow Indians much more latitude in the handling of their fi nancial affairs. Within a hort time the sum of $75,000 now held In trust for the Indians will be raid them and this money they may use as they see fit. At the Joint conference with the Indians and a delegation of business men, held at the agency yesterday afternoon. Major McFatrldge announc ed the department's new ruling and also admonished the Indians to be careful In the exercise of their new powers. In a speech which was Interpreted to the Indians by Joe Craig and Leo Sampson the agent told the Indians that those who squandered their mon ey would be placed In the Incompe tent class and would then receive only enough money to secure the necessi ties of life. He especially warned the tribesmen against the evils of "fire water." The business men of the city were also asked to aid the government In the experiment by treating the In dians fairly. Order From Valentine. The ruling just made is the direct outgrowth of Agent McFatrldge's trip to Washington some time ago. While before the bureau of Indian affairs Major McFatrldge argued In favor of the new system which has long been asked for by local Indians and also by business men. The following is the order from Mr. Valentine: Washington, April 9. Arthur E. McFatrldge. Esq., Superintendent Umatilla Indian School, Pendleton, Ore. Sir: Hereafter when In your opinion an Indian Is competent to manage his own affairs, and such In dian has funds deposited to his Indi vidual credit, over which the govern ment exercises control as trustee, you are authorized to turn such funds over to the Indian owner, and this letter is your authority for so doing. In order to accomplish this you are directed to have each Indian draw a check to the order of the cashier of the bank, to be countersigned by you in the regular way, which check will serve as voucher to your accounts. When the checks are received at the bank the present a counts of the In dians should -be closed and new ac counts opened with them, which will not be subject to the usual restriction regulations. Each regular designated depository in which you have placed trust funds belonging to the Indians should be furnished with a copy of this letter for its Information. You will be expected to confer with the Indians and advise them that the office, in pursuing the course herein indicated, believes that it will be for their .best Interests. It will be your duty to counsel Indians In all matters pertaining to their Individual accounts PRONOUNCED 1 CASE INCURABLE lit ffwtl Alfred Benjamin & Co.

Pendleton's Leading Clothiers n 5 Hi Whole Body Raw with- Eczema- Life was Intolerable Was Even Incased in Plaster Discharged from. Hospitals as Hopeless. SUFFERED 14YEARS CURED BY CUT1CURA " From the aee of three months until If teen years old, my son Owen's Ufa was made intoler able by eczema in iu worst form. He was all right until a red rash broke -out on bis fore head, but we were not alarmed at first. Very soon, however, the rash began to spread over his head and shoulders, and it caused him great discomfort. I took him to a doctor and tried half a dozen other treatment, ail with the same result: no improvement at all. The disease gradually spread until nearly every part of his body was quite raw. We had to strap him down in bed, for he used to tar himself dreadfully in his sleep. The agony be went through is quite beyond words. No one thought we would rear him. The regimental doctor, a very clever man, pronounced the cae hopeless; at least, he said the only hope was that he might, if he lived Jong enough, outgrow it to some extent. We bad him in hospitals four times and he was pronounced one of the worst caw, if not the worst, ever admitted, from earh he was dis charged as incurable; in fart he got wone undpr the successive treatments. At one hospital they incawd hirn in placter, and this neemed to aggravate the gorfiietig terriMy. He looked so badly that no one likr-d to go n-ar hirn and his life wan a burl-n to hirn. We kept trying remedy ufu-r remedy, but we had g't alni'ist pat hoping' for a cure. Kix months ago we purchased a ft of f'uticura Soap, Ointment, and Resolvent Tills and persevered with them. The result wa truly marvelous and to-day he is x'rf-ctly cured, his skin not having a blemish on it anywhere.

When, however, an Indian has been given a fair chance to show his ability to properly care for and manage his affairs, and the superintendent is con vinced that such Indian does not measure up to the standard which in his opinion would be for the best in terest and protection of such Indian, the superintendent is hereby author ized to place the Indian In the incom petent class, and thereafter his funds will be distributed under governmental supervision. It will bo seen from what is said that the office Is desirous of giving a greater number of Umatilla Indians a chance to handle their own affairs to give them the same oppor tunity enjoyed by their white breth ren. Finally, I will be pleased to have you inform the Indiana that you, as superintendent, have been largely In strumental In procuring the necessary action, which will lead to the removal of restrictions from the Individual ac counts now In bank to their several credits, and that after careful consid eration the nrocedure herein Indicated will be carried out for the advance- j ment of their general and Individual welfare. A last word of caution. This is an experiment of the greatest value to the service at large. Failure In It will de Irremediable damage; success, un ending good. Go slow and succeed.

RISAPPOIXTKD IN TIIH PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE The newspapers of the coutry art commenting generally upon the ter seness of Presldnet Taft's first spec ial message to Congress. Rollin Bond Beresford's representative, who was In Pendleton today, Is much cast down. He thinks the President might at least have mentioned to congress how much he laughed when he at tended Mr. Ur-resford's performance of "Who's Your Friend?" at Augusta, Ga., on Saturday, January 9; and also In view of the fact that laughing at Beresford's performance has been not only a national but an International affair. And he telis us that, on that same date, the newspeper men of Augusta gave a banquet at which Mr. Ilerexford was the guest of honor, and when the toastmaster. in the course of h!s remarks referred to Mr. IJeres- ford as "the only live comedian in captivity whose head could not be turned by having in his audience at one time a President-elect of the T'nltedStates, the Governor of a great slate and most of the Legislative body t that state, manifesting their plea-j sure in no uncertain way." Mr. Beres- ford acknowledged that "his head bad been turned many times during the,1 course or his career as a comedian, and add'd that the surest way to turn bis bead was to "come to the theatre late and wear creaky shoes" all of For Sole, a Bargain.
