What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

Under a recent decision of the court o f appeals'for the District of Columbia,,a white man adopted into & d Indian tribe isj entitled to all-the rights of an Indian in the matter of the allotment o f land. The case at issue involved the^ rights of 11 while men to secure allotments on the Wichita Indian reservation, inlndiaD territory.r.Each of these individuals, who claims to be a member of the Wichita tribe by adoption, brought suit against the secretary of the in­ terior to compel him to approve of certain allotments Of quarter sections of land to which they claimed they were entitled under an agreement whereby the United States promised to allot to each member of the’ tribe certain tracts of land. The petitioners showod that they were adopted momborsof the Wichita tribe; that they bad lived on these landB for many years, and had made valuable improvements thereon. When thoy, with other members of the tribe, agreod to relinquish the bulk of their reservation to the United States, it was understood that each Indian should first havo tbo right to select a tract of 1G0 acros as his allot­ ment. In accordance with this agreement, the eleven adopted mem­ bers of the tribe duly made selections of their quarter sections. When the cases came before the intorior de­ partment, Secretary .Hitchcock with­ held his approval of these eleven selections on tho ground that the petitioners were not membors of tbo Wichita tiibe, and henco, not entitled to allotments. Tbo supreme court for the District of Columbia dismissed the appeals on tho ground that the action of the secretary was judicial in its nature, aud could not be reviewed npr con­ trolled by the courts. This court denied the petitioner’s application for a writ, of mandamus to compel the secretary to ratify the allotment of certain lauds to them. In its opinion the court also upheld the secretary’s decision that a tribe of Indians is without the power or authority to adopt a wkito man. The court of appeals, in reversing the lower court, hold that tho power aud authority of a tribe to adopt cannot bo denied, in view of tbo history of Indian tribes for 250 years past, and the recognition uniformly given by tho government to their acts of adoption. This decision practically puts the matter of tribal members ontirelv in tbo control of tribes themselves, and gives those tribes a greater freedom in tbe management of their own af­ fairs than they have heretofore en­ joyed. The decision will likewise affect a largo number of white men, heretofore adopted as members of various tribes, whose right to secure allotments has been denied by the department. Lands are United States Property. A decision by Attorney General Knox, announced a few days ago, holds that the public lands in Porto Rico formerly belonged to Spain and by virtue of the treaty of Paris now belong to the United States. The opinion was renderod at the request of tbe secretary of the interior for a ruling as to whether the so called public lauds of Porto Rico were ceded as crown lands to tbe United States by tbe Paris treaty or remain the property of Porto Rico aa state lands. Western Range Horses. Tho usual idea associated with the western branded horses is the mus­ tang, cayuse or broncho, which a decade ago were distributed through the western states in car lots and traiDload consignments. They were offered everywhere in almost count­ less numbers until their - values felj below the cost pf transportation, feed, commissions and incidental expenses of salo. Ranchmen who' were bur ation. Canneries were equipped and thousands of them found a sale in tho markets of tho old world as horse beef. Their rauks were decimated by wolves and mouulain lious and they were ruthlessly slaughtered as worthless incumbrances of tbo west­ ern ranges. Tbe process of depletion has nearly exterminated the cayuso which foaturod the markets a docado or more ago. While the western ranges nro ad mirably adapted to producing excel­ lent horses, stockmen roalize (hut only classified grados are now profit­ able to break. Tbo almost record prices of cattle and sheep has croaled a demand for tho rangos that has accelerated the extirpation of tho old-time westorn broncho. Fruits of Our Civil War. m s m m denecLwith myriads o f tneae ncmde-. script horses, with no>/demand for them, began acam p aignof extennin- ' i r f S I l L : ÎSSÎFÆ ïî Professor Golwin Smith asks in tho March Atlantic what havo been tbo fruits of a war which cost tho north alone, in different ways, probably $5,000,000,000, besides a ponsiou list which amounted to $1>10,000,(11)0 thirty-threo years aftor tho war; this in addition to all tho havoc, waste and suspension of industry; wbilo ou tho northern side alono 275,000 men, either fell in battle or diod in tho hospitals. Slavery has boon legally abolished. Tho sontonoo of humanity seat, and as the senators filed by Davis called them off as Adam had named tho animals in tbe morning of tho world: Thoro came tbe jackall, tbo vulture, tbo sheep-killing dog, the gorilla, tbe crocodile, the buzzard, tho old hen, tho dovo, tho turkey gobbler, aud as tho big hulk of a greedy westerner, coarse, sodden and and growling, came swinging in very hoavily, Judge Davis pointed his stubby foroiingcr at tbe uiau aud said: “A-wolf, sir, a damn, hungry, skulking, cowardly wolf, sir.” It was a pretty bad lot, tho sonato of thorn days. Pow d e rly G o e s Out. Cut Price For Shearing. Tho executive eomtnilloo of the Northern Montana Woolgrowors’ association has fixed tho price which tho sheopmon of northern Montana will payr por head for shoaring or tlioir flocks for tho com tiling soason. “ For tho soason of 1902 wo will pay (! cents por head for yearlings, 7 cents per head for shoep, and chargo 75 cents per day for bourd,” is the ultimatum of tho woolgrowors, and for the first tiino since the beginning of tho sheep industry’ in northern Montana tho men who own tho sheep havo deeidod to stand logothor on a cortain figure to bo paid tho shearers. Heretofore il lies boon tbo men who The position of commissioner gen­ eral of immigration has been ten­ dered by the president to Frank P. Sargent, chief of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Firemen, to succeed T. V. Powderly, the incumbent. It is understood the reason for the president’s action in desiring to re­ lieve Mr. Powderly is because he baa not workod in harmony with tbe higher officials of the treasury de­ partment, which has resulted in more or less friction. It has also been determined to re­ lieve Thos. Fritchio, commissioner at New York, and hie associate, Edward F. McSweenoy. The changes, it is said, will take effect April 1, although it is not given out who will succeed tho two latter officials. Kaiser Bars A m erican Meats. New York, March 22.—The news has just been received that a decree has been signed by Kaiser Wilhelm, which debars all fresh and canned beef, bacon, hams and pork. The docroe, which takes effect the 1st of September next, was signed three days after tho departure of Prince Henry from this'country. The pro­ hibition is based on the grounds that borax and boric acid have been used iu presorviug tbo debarred meats. Oddly enough, experiments by this and the German government, show that boric acid not only keops fresh food in its natural state, but causes it to remain a wholesome article. No deleterious offects to health havo been noted, it is said. 1,500 At H o rse-M e a t Banquet. Fifteen hundred people sat at a bauquet in Paris recontly at which the flesh o f horses, bssob and ^ u les was tho principal viand. The ban­ quet was given by tbo horse butchers and their wivos. One of tbe horses that contributed to tbe repast had won many a stoeplechaso at Autouil. M. Zavaret, who presided, dcclarod tho horso to bo tbo cleanest animal iu its foed, and that it was an un­ reasonable prejudice that existed against horsoilosh, while people voraciously dovour pork, which is tho flesh of tbe most unclean of animals, and mackerol, which is the scavenger o f tho seas. The commit­ tee in chargo of tho affair announced that it intonded to hold a* fat-horse procossion at Easter. —Butchers’ Advocate. on it has been exocuted. Its hideous slave codos haye boon swopt from the statute book of man. But tbo fif­ teenth amendment is trampled under foot, and no one is found to - uphold it, while tho relation notween tho races is in some rospocts worso than ever. Tho ono clear gain is that tho extension of slavery has boon pre­ vented. Tho 8lavo owner’s vision of dominion ovor Mexico, Cuba and tbo West Indies might otherwise havo been fulfilled; his land hunger would have lent a spur to his ambition, and it is difficult to say by what bis career could havo boon barred. Received Heavy Sentences. Havana, March 24.—Tbo trials be­ fore the audencia court of tho cases arising from the embezzloment of Cuban postal funds have resulted in the following sentences: C. W. F- Neely, 10 years imprison­ ment and pay a fine of $5G,70L W. H. Reeves, IQ years imprison­ ment and a fine o f $35,51C. Estes G.

Last season of tbo sheepmen of Choteau and Valloy counties endeavored to fix a figure, but.tboy failed to Btand togolhor, and tho cut fell by the way. In tho present instance tho majority, if not all of the shoep ownors of northern Montana, stand together, and will back tho action of tbe executive committee, which was taken at a mooting of that body bold in this city Tuesday last.— Groat Falls Leader.
