Subcommittee Appointed to Looic
liitj» Project Carefully and lie
port—May Visit Oilier
The city improvement committee of the 1
Commercial club yesterday at its regular i
meeting considered the proposition of :
building an auditorium for St. Paul and
appointed a subcommittee to work out
the details of the plan. The committee
appointed yesterday consists of the fol- |
lowing: C. B. Bowlby, L. D. Wilkes and'
E. S. Chittenden. I
The subcommittee will probably hold its ;
meeting Monday, when the various ;
methods of erecting buildings of this
character will be thoroughly gone over, !
and some definite plan settled on. The I
improvement committee will hold its I
weekly meeting next Saturday and it is j
expected that the subcommittee will have |
a report ready by that time. j
In a general way the plans for the :
erection of a public building were gone
over yesterday, and the general senti- !
ment appeareed to be in favor of the one j
adopted by Kansas City with so much I
The Kansas City auditorium which will
seat 13,000 people, and leave standing
room for 2,000 more, was erected by popu- j
lar subscriptions, generally from .*: to $3 !
being secured. The railways and other
large concerns contributed liberally to i
the plan. Buttons were sold and different j
kinds of entertainments held, all the I
funds yielded being turned into the build- }
ing. The same plan in a modified form j
was tried in Omaha. The auditorium j
there is still under course of construe- I
This matter was turned entirely over
to the subcommittee, whose chief duty
will be to discover the best means of
raising the necessary funds for the en
terprise. It was suggeseted at the com
mittee' meeting that it might be ad
vantageous for a committee to visit Kan
sas City and Omaha and learn from the
promoters of the auditoriums there the
exact details of the fund raising process.
J. W. L. Corning, chairman of the com
mittee, thought that the first thing to
be done was to arouse the enthusiasm of j
the loyal citizens of the city, after which i
almost any feasible plan could be worked
out to -a successful finish. After it has
been decided how to go ahead to get the
money for the building, the work of
awakening interest on the part of the
residents of St. Paul will begin, and an
earnest campaign will be carried on with
thu end In view.
The following members of the com
mittee were present yesterday: J \v
L. Corning, chairman; President H. A
Boardman, L D. Wilkes, Oliver Crosby;
B. H. Sehrefber, I-:. S. Chittenden, Prof
J. E. Kennig and T. A. Abbott
G. W. Sikes, C. B. Bowlby, F. W Bet—

Will Appeal Their Case to President
Roosevelt—Attract Consider
able Attention While
in St. Paul.
Four grizzled and aged Chippewa In
dian chiefs, direct from the much dis
puted Mille Lacs reservation, in the
northern'part of the state, passed througn
St. Paul last night, en route to Washing
ton, where they will have a council with
Great Chief Roosevelt and the land de
partment regarding their lands, which
they claim -have been taken from them
by fraud and coercion.
The four representatives of this pass
ing race were under the guidance of
Thomas Daily, an interpreter,, and an
swered to the names of Ain-dus-akishij,
Mee-goo-see. May-gwon-ay-be and On-Df.
--10. An animated discussion over the
strange things that constantly crossed
their vision and the guttural sounds ut
tered in the Chippewa language drew a
crowd of the curious, and during their
brief stay at the depot they -were the
center of attraction. ;> -*
According to their guide, the Indians
are en route to Washington to plead for
the passage of a law reimbursing the
tribe for land taken from them when the
Mille Lacs reservation was opened two
years ago. Deprived of the reservation
as a hunting ground, • many of the In-'
dians took up Individual holdings, but
even this, they say, was denied them.
Refusing to move, their huts and tepees
last May were burned over their heads
and they were driven out at the point
of a shotgun by the Mille Lacs sheriff
and a posse. One Indian appealed to
the government land office, and he was
satisfied,, but the others were not so
fortunate. They now go to Washington
to ask that they either be given the land
back or be reimburseu to the extent ot
its value.
The interpreter, who is a full-blooded
Indian, was very voluble in reciting the
wrongs of his people, who he said had
literally been driven from their homes
and farms at -the point of a shotgun. The
trip to Washington is simply an echo of
the extensive frauds that were said to
have a large part in the opening of the
reservation to the invasion of the pale
face. -. "-^.v^ 'IcZ-r
The Indians left over, the Burlington,
and will remain at Washington until they
receive a hearing. They will be used prin
cipally as object lesson for the introduc
tion and passage of a bill in congress pro
viding for the payment of the lands taken.
