(Continued from 1st Page.) heading of White Earth Reserva tion on conditions found to be obtaining at the White Earth boarding sdhool were largely causeed by the neglect of Supt. Hinton to observe these conditions, draw the attention of the principal and others to same, and have them corrected, and to see to it that they were corrected. "We observed that he rarely ever visited the boarding school, and we did not see him calling at tention to or criticising any of the conditions which needed attention. "Supt. Hinton is lacking in di plomacy. There have been fre quent occasions presented to him when he could have allayed some of the bitter feelings existing against him on the part of certain White Earth mixed-bloods by em ploying some of their members in positions at the boarding school and agency, and by so doing would have secured nearly, as good if not better employees. "Rev. Otto H. Brauer, secretary of the Mahnomen County Child Welfare Board, stated to us that Supt. Hinton did not cooperate and attend to the cases of destitu tion reported to him, became antfry when the cases were called to his attention, and generally neglected looking after the cases of destitu tion. This same opinion was con curred in by P. J. Reck, probate judge of Mahnomen county, F. A. Johnson, county auditor of Mah nomen County, and Alice E. Carl, deputy auditor. We found that no effort appears to have been made on the part of the superin tendent's office to acquaint them selves with cases of destitution, and properly look after and care for same. "One of-the greatest sources of complaint against Supt. Hinton is that he has been very slow to re spond to calls of necessity, and to pay moneys to Indians, or to par ents legally appointed guardians of minor children. We believe there have been a great many cases where he was fully justified in paying out these moneys, which he refused to do, which caused ill Catarrhal Deafness Cannot Be Cured by local applications, as they cannot reach the diseased portion of the ear. There Is only one way to cure catarrhal deafness. and that Is by a constitutional remedy. Catarrhal Deafness is caused by an in flamed condition of the mucous lining of the Eustachian Tube. When this tube Is inflamed you have a rumbling sound or im perfect hearing and when It Is entirely closed, Deafness Is the result. Unless the intlammation can be reduced and this tube restored to its normal condition, hearing will bo destroyed forever.

"He appeared to be seeking for technicalities to obstruct and delay, rather than looking for an avenue to aid, and it appears that instead of welcoming the assistance and cooperation of the county author ities he resented their interference. "From all of the foregoing we are convinced, as was also Super visor P. R. Wadsworth, that Supt J. H. Hinton is not the proper person to be in charge at the White Earth Agency. He is get ting old, is slow, and technical, lacking in diplomacy, incurring the ill will and displeasure of In dians and white persons alike, many of whom he could have working with him instead of against him if he used proper methods, is narrow, and seeking to find a way to prevent the accomplishment of results rather than the opposite, has little method or system in vogue among his employees at the agency, and seems to have greatly neglected the boarding school and permitted same to give just cause for criticism in a good many re spects. "For such reasons we believe he should be replaced by a younger and more vigorous and aggressive superintendent, who will see to it that the various details necessary to accomplish the best results at the agency, school, and hospital are carried out who will investi gate and relieve cases of destitution and want, and who will cooperate with the county and State author ities, and secure their assistance rather than their ill will, and who by diplomacy will not antagonize the Indians who are reasonably disposed towards the Government and the proper administration of affairs." Further reference to this report will be made in future issues of THE TOMAHAWK. Friends of Indian to Have Conference. Inquiries received from many parts of the United States indicate a widespread interest in the con7 ference of active friends of the American Indian, which has been called in Philadelphia this month. The conference is being arranged by the Indian Rights Association. Among other things the call says: "The Indians have loyally respond ed to the country's call for service in fill directions, not only by enand listing in the army and navy, but in the purchase of Liberty Bonds, Red Cross work, increased activity in agriculture and stock raising. ser* on'your shirw^nt means.'
