With regard to this ''pre

the press of the country has

the president has already oc

in striking opposition to the
necessity for preparedness
second, while touring a cer

with his new-found bride, in

threw quite a bomb in Wail
bay last week when lie an
nounced through the local pa
pers that he would take all
Indian money out of the
Waubay banks and use his
influence to induce the In
dians to go elsewhere to
trade if the people of Wau

saloons upon the Indians in
the western part of the reser

would not be compatible with

spend all their income for
booze. A11 Indian agent's
duties are onercus enough
without adding to it the duty
of looking after drunken In
dians, and Mr. Mossman can
not be criticized for the stand
he has taken in the matter—
