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.

Keen Resentment The recent ordinance passed by the Indian Council, requiring reservatiOn hunting and fishing permits, has arous- ed plenty of unfavorable comment. Harsh words have been spoken. Ill feeling has been increased. Telegram: have been sent over the wires and num- erous letters written on the subject. Several others matters, which have been a \bone of contention\ in the past, are coming to the front again. The permit asked for is a small thing in itself, but apparently has been the means ot arousing a torrent of protest, not only about this matter butt several alters. What the outcome will be we don't know. We do know, however, or at least believe that committees should be appointed, that the facts be esrablished and that Indians and Whites be obliged to live up to any agreement or treaty which has been made in the past, whether last month or 25 years ago.
