If ms 4 J* ^^l?'%f tp RUSSIA'S GREAT DRINK REFORM If the manufacture, sale and consumption of whiskey and all "hard" liquor were sud denly stopped in the United Statesif the country's 2300 distilleries were put out of business by a stroke of the pen and the gov ernment's income ofr 1163,879,342 yearly from this source absolutely cut offwe should have a condition of things approxi mately resembling that brought about in Russia by the abolition of the vodka traffic. Yet even this parallel does not fully repre sent the revolution in Russia's drinking habits whereby 150,000,000 persons are af fected at an annual cost to the government -of 1500,000,000 in revenue. Doubtless no more heroic reform measure was ever introduced by any government. It has remained for the absolute monarchy whose name is synonymous with oppres sion, but which yet anticipated our own free nation in liberating the serf, to give force to what is altogether the most remark able temperance movement in the world's lif...

1 RESPECT FOR AMERICAN INDIAN'S DESIRES. Interracial amity does not preclude or ex clude racial dignity and self-respect, or anything that fosters them. If the red In dian of the United States is a distinct race, not derived from any of the major subdivi sions of the human family, but authenti a 1 1 aboriginal and a a \hy of course Indian youth on entering schools and begining the study of history in its bioader and more general aspects should not be taught otherwise. The Indian Commissioner, 1ato Sells, is justified in protecting his charges to this extent, if he has back of him the best ethnological expert opinion. That some ethnologists still hold to 1he Asiatic origin, at least of the Indians of the north Pacific tribes now iound in both British and United States territory, is -i fact. Nevertheless there \il be champions of the step that has been taken by Commission er Sells. For the experience of ihe United States A\ ith ifs non-Caucasian inhabitants has been that they achieve ...

VOLUME 3. 4 Itf IXDIAX EbCViTIOX A FAILURE.' The conditions to which most Indian students return are hard, far harder than the average Easterner can realize. Many of the reservations are long distances from railroads, so that supplies are hard to get as well as expensive, while in places water is a real luxury. The standards of the com munity must also he taken into considera tion, and in all too many localities the white people living near are not of a type to prove either helpful or elevating. With all these difficulties, and many, many more, we ex pect far more of the Indian than we would of a white student who had enjoyed equal advantages. A white hoy who has been in school until he is perhaps twenty, and in that time has had to master, in addition to the usual studies, a new language, and ac cept an entirely strange system of living', is not expected to raise the standards of his home community to any very great extent. The Indian is. He must not only have ac quired a trade and...

Address all communications to RED LAKE NEWS, Red Lake, Minn. From Vu comments of the press generally throughtout northern Minnesota it would appear that the enforcement of the provi sion of the Chippewa Indian treaty of 1855 relative to the liquor traffic is meeting with general public approval. A prominent business man of Bemidji, one who makes it his business to consult public opinion and to keep in close touch with business conditions, expressed himself recently to an official of the government in this manner: "We have, of course, noticed the change times are dull but this condition cannot be laid to the closing of the saloons.

The mother knew nothing about it, or said she didn't, until after this boy was gone, when she made some very bitter remarks about him. Soon after the first child had gone an opportunity came to form a class of pupils to go to the same school and the mother was asked if she would consent to the other child's go ing to the same school where the first had already gone. The second child also pleaded with its mother to give her consent but was refused. She not only refused to let the second .child go with the first but took it out of the reservation school and kept it at home. Up to that time both children were in good health. Today the younger child which was not permitted to continue its studies at a non reservation school is in such a poor state of health as a result of confinement at home with poor and scanty food to eat and in a poorly built, cold and ill ventilated house, that there is grave doubt if this child will...
