WELCOME NEWS
FOR LOCAL PEOPLE
The simple mixture of buckthorn
bark, glycerine, etc., known as Ad
ler-i-ka, astonishes local people.
Because Adler-i-ka flushes the ali
mentary tract COMPLETELY it
relieves ANY CASE constipation,
sour stomach or gas. It removes
such surprising foul matter that a
few doses often relieve or prevent
appendicitis. A short treatment
lielps chronic stomach trouble. The
INSTANT easy action of Adler-i-ka
is astonishing.

Local Council Holds
Meeting.
Pursuant to call of the Chairman,
Henry Selkirk, the White Earth
Local Council met last Saturday
in the Town Hall. A large number
were present and ail showed great
enthusiasm over the purpose of
the meeting and many expressed
the opinion that it was a matter
that should have been taken up
long ago. After the meeting WHS
called to order, Mr. Archie Li boy
was elected secretary of the meet
ing. After a preliminary address
by Frank D. Beau lieu explaining
the purpose of the meeting, a reso
lution was offered appointing three
persons, namely Theo. Beaul
ieu, Eugene Warren and Archie
Lbby as a committee to investi
gate and ascertain the amount,
character and value of all property
and equipment purchased fromi
funds of the Chippewa Indians of
Minnesota, which was used in con-j
nection with the said agency at)
White Earth, also the government
boarding school, and which was on
hand at the close of the school
year in June, 1919. To ascertain
what portion of this property has
been sold or otherwise disposed of
to whom it was sold, or if given
away gratis to whom so given the
pr"ce obtained for any such prop
erty, and to ascertain if the said
Chippewaa of Minnesota were
iriven due credit for the amounts
received from the sale of such
property. To ascertain the con
tinual lack of water in the village
water system. To ascertain why a
government physician is not ap
pointed for this agency.
The resolution was passed as
offered.
It is now urged that all persons
who know of any misappropriation
of the property of this agency or
of the former boarding school go
before the committee and make
the facts known, and to offer them
every assistance to the end that
their written report may, soon be
in the hands of the chairman of
the local council, who will in turn
file the same with the Legislative
Committee of the General Council,
Minnesota Chippewaa, who will
take the matter up with the Com
missioner of Indian Affairs and
members of Congress at Washing
ton, D. this winter.
In regard to the appointment of
a physician for this agency, if one
cannot be secured, we still insist
that the agency hospital should be
cloned. What ihis agency needs is
the services of a first class physi
cian, no mater if the salary has to
be raised in order to secure one,
aod also uie services of at least one
graduate nurse for the agency
hospital, without either physician
or nurse the agency hospital
is of no benefit whatever to
the Chippewe people and only
tends to furuish employment to a
force of employees who are hold
ing sinecure positions, for without
a physician they have absolutely
nothing to do but eat their meals
and draw their salaries.
CHIPPEWA MATTERS AT
WASHINGTON.
(Continued from 1st Page.)
Indians before it became operative,
and when ratified became an ex
press agreement of equal import
to a treaty, a fund was created
under an express trust, and it was
provided:
"That Congress may, in its dis
cretion, FROM TIME TO TIME, during
the said period of fifty years, ap
propriate, for the purpoMe of pro
moting civilization and 8lf-sup-
port among the said Indians, a
portion of said principal sum, not
exceeding five per centum thereof/'
The words "FROM TIME TO TIME"'
clearly indicate that it was never
in the mind of either party to the
agreement that there were to be
regular annual appropriations
i
the United States was paying out WuHIIllITT66 HDIuS moBr
of the public money all the expens-!
es of maintaining the Indian ill&i
agencies, and if it had been the
i.
intention of either party that these
expenses were thereafter to be!
r.. A
necessary. When the Commission-
Yr
ers representing the Unite States'i
explained the above quoted pro-
L.
vision of section 7 to the Indians
u-
lthat they informed the Indians th
fund was to be encroached upon
only
"in case of the failure of
crops or any unforeseen
misfortune."
For 21 years after the agreement
was entered into and not until
1911, was the fund touched for
such purpose. That clearly indi-,
cated the understanding of the) what they know in this Pegard
contracting parties The Indians
ha\e tried in vain to have this
question determined by a court,
but this can only be done by re
ference of the matter to the Court
of Claims. Failing in their efforts
to secure a determination of the
question by the courts they have
requested the Secretary of the In
terior and the Commissioner of In
dian Affairs to refer-the matter to
the Solicitor for the Department
of the Interior for an opinion by
the Department's own law officer.
This the Secretary refused to do
under date of May 22, 1919, stat
ing:
"In view of the fact that the
Department has heretofore, and on
careful consideration adopted its
position concerning the points you
raise, it is not deemed appropriate
at this time to refer them as sug
gested. Accordingly, your re
quest is denied."
The Commissioner in a letter
dated November 5, 1919, declined
to refer the question to the Solicit
or in these words:
"In answer to that part of your
letter of the 3rd ultimo, in which
you request that this Office ask the
Solicitor for an opinion as to the
legality of the annual appropria
tions by Congress of, Chippewa
funds for administrative purposes,
you are advised that I have care
fully considered this question aud
am of the opinion that the action
with reference to the use of these
funds is legal, and therefore see
no occasion for submitting the
matter to the Solicitor as you re
quest."
The Chippewa Indians, through
their General Council, protest
this or any other appropriation for
the maintenance of the Indian
Bureau service Td Minnesota out
of their trust funds, and insist tkat
whenever an accounting is had
through a court the United States
will be required to repay, prinei
pal and interest, every dollar fry
propriated out of their trust funds
for this purpose.
Combined Effort.
The great artist who paints a picture
which compels the admiration of *be
world does not do so with one swf-ep
of the brush in one moment of inspira
tion. The great masterpiece is
product of thousands of strokes of the
hrush, of infinitesimal bits of pijri* nt
put on the canvas layer nfter lnyer,
each done with consummate art. Every
tiny bit of paint, every swift stroke
does Its tiny part toward what beetuca
nt Inst a marvel of ages. So must"we
work, stroke by stroke, a bit here "ind
hit there, until oor masterpiece has
been cooipieieo.
