L. I. HAMILTON,

you may find out what he wants
most, maybe not. I remember
the man who, when asked what he
would do if he had a million dol
lars, said, "I'd get a large, com
fortable armchair and sit down."
The world is very good at doing
just that, sitting back and letting
things slide is one of the easiest
things it does."
Fellow Indians let the words of
Mr. Black be a lesson to you. Toopermanent
many of us have sat back and let
the world slide from under ns.
We must try and cure the North
American part of the world from
its indigestion, cut out its diet of
Indian Bureauism, it has fed on it
long enough. The ward system is
the cause of the degradation of the
Indians of North America. Your
record is handed down from one
agent to another and finally it
reaches Washington. I don't like
to criticise the Bureau or local
agencies but after a man thinks
the matter over he cannot help
himself. Although we have a good
agent at the Fond du La reserva
tion at present. If the former
agents were like Mr. Bonnio and
Mr. Dickens we would have had
some system, but it is to late, we
must do away with the agency or
What do they waut? or, what do
we want? You must, very fre
quently during recent months have
heard or seen the question, "What
do they waut?" you have noted the
question as applied to various en
thusiasms or protests or resolu
tions, to socialism, to anarchism,
to the l. W. W., to the Bolshevists,
to the Society of American Indians,
to the General Council Chippewas
or Minnesota. There never was a
time in the history of the world
when there were so many seeming
ly reasonable occasions for asking
the question, 1 have read it scores
of times since the armistice.
Perhaps it would be to logical
altogether to say that every big
movement has a big wish behind it.
If every big movement, direct and
bloody, or indirect and perplexing,
did have a great desire behind it,
what a fine thing it would be to get
the cold facts about these desires
and to learn just how far apart
they are as to destination. What a
splendid joke on the world if it
could be discovered that most
people want pretty much the same
thing. So it is up to us to get
together and let the people of
North America know what our de
siro is, we must let the people
know that we want freedom and
our full rights as American citi
The call of the Indian for citizen
ship, freedom and democracy is like
the call of a lioness, knowing that
this country and freedom was once
his by the gift of God, before it
was snatched away by the Indian
Bureau and the Indian imprisoned
under the reservation system. As
Dr. Montezuma said, we must be
come producers, not only consum

become that is better off dead, for

6. R. Wadsworth to Suc
ceed Mr. Peel as Spe
cial Agent Here.
When W. F. Dickens resigned
as Superintendent here about six
weeks ago, and Mr. V. Peel,
special agent in the Indian Depart
ment arrived from Washington,
D. it was supposed that he was
to be kept in charge here until a
agent or superintendent
was appointed for this agency
Later developments however are
to effect that Mr. Peel is not to re
main here, but that MroB. K. Wads
worth, supervisor in the Indian
Service who arrived here last Sat
urday night, is to take charge im
mediately after the annuity pay
ment, takes place, which we under
stand will be sometime this month.
Mr. Peel is to make the payment
as the checks are nearly all signed
and it would only complicate mat
ters to make the change at once.
Mr. Wadsworth will remain here
and familiarize himself with agency
matters until such time as he will
assume full charge.
While Mr. Peel's stay here has
been brief, he has by his courtesy,
fair dealing and apparent desire to
do what is right, won the respect
of all with whom he came in con
tact. While his successor, Mr.
Wadsworth, is only slightly known
by the reservation public, it is
hoped he will, by his administra
tion of agency affairs, be deserving
of the same praise accorded Mr.
Peel and Mr. Dickens.
On October 30th, the second
meeting of the local chapter of the
Society of American Indians, which
was recently organized in Minne
apolis, held its second meeting at
the St. James Hotel in that city.
The society proposes to work
in union with the National Society
of American Indians in their
efforts to obtain freedom and citi
zenship for the Indian race. All
members of this society are Indian
residents of the Twin Cities. De
Forest Davis, a practicing dentist
of Minneapolis, was elected presi
dent of the Society.
