Complain Against Doctor
Robertson and Clerk
Charges against Doctor Robert
son and Mr. Six, clerk at the
Agency office here, have been sent
to the Chippewa, delegation from
this reservation now at Washing
ton, D. C. with the request that it
present them to the Indian office
The particular charges, it is
learned, are to the effect that Doc
tor Robertson and Mr. Six were
responsible in having the position
of cook, recently made vacant by
the resignation of Mrs. Romain
Perrault, at the hospital, filled by
Annie Lynch, a white girl, to the
exclusion of several applicants who
are members of this reservation.
Full and complete information
was sent the delegation and the
details given regarding the manner
in which the position of nurse was
first filled by Miss Lynch, when a
vacancy occurred by the resigna
tion of the head nurse, upon the
arrival of the nurse appointed by
the Indian office, how a member
ot the tribe who was filling the
position of cook was removed
create a position for Annie Lynch.
The delegation has been re
quested to present the matter to
the Indian office and congress.
Under the provisions of the In
dian appropriation act of last year
there is a provision which requires
the Commissioner of Indian
Affairs to appoint members of
Chippewa bands of Minnesota to
all the positions in the Chippewa
Indian service in preference to
non members of the Chippewa
bands, but this has been repudiat
ed by the commissioner and his
assistant, and it is now harder for
Indians to obtain positions in thepassed
service than ever.
It is learned that the delegation
is not only going to bring the
matter to the direct attention of
the Secretary of the Interior, but
to President Wilson himself.
VOTE LEGAL BEL-
TRAMI STAYS WET.
Bemidji, Minn. -As a result of
a decision by District Judge C.
W. Stanton, holding that the Red
Lake Indians had the right to vote
in the local option election, Bel
trami county will romain wet as it
was voted last August by the
small plurality of l'A votes. Fol
lowing a contest of the election,
which still left the "wots" with a
margin of nine votes, H. A. ()p-
sahl, in behalf of the prohibition
forces, starced court action in an
effort to have the votes of the In
dians declared illegal.Minneap
It is to be regretted that the
Red Lake Indians are responsible
for keeping the county of Bel
trami wet. THE TOMAHAWK does
not hesitate to say that had not
undue influence been used with the
Indians they would not have voted
in favor of allowing intoxicating
liquor to be sold in the county
within which the Red Lake reser
vation is located.
The next time this question
comes up in Beltrami county, it is
hoped that the true friends of theElgin
Indians will exert their influence
against the sale of liquor in that
Those who induced the Red
Lake Indians to vote in favor of
would not help the un-
fortunate members of the reserva
tion who may be taken to Fergus
Falls upon the charge of introduc
ing whiskey upon the Red Lake
reservation, or who may treat
their friends upon the reservation
notwithstanding their moral oo
ligation to do this in view of thefor
influence they wielded in favor of
keeping the county wet.

appeals at St. Louis, Attorney
General Smith has announced.
While not important because of
the amounts involved, Mr. Smith
explained, the case is expected
greatly to affect the state relations
with the Indian Jands by determ
