The Stony Indian hand has threatened to c s I a b 1 i s h loll gales on the Trans-Canada high- way if a dispute over mineral I rights wilh the government is' rot settled by Friday. The high- way runs through the Stony re- serve, 50 miles west of Calgary. I The dispute is over a I960' agreement under which the: Sfonys traded 340 acres of land for acres adjoining the reserve. The Indians say they understood the agreement to in- clude the transfer of mineral rights while the province says that was not the case. Three Stony chiefs said that if the government goes ahead with plans to lay charges of obstruc- tion, it will have to arrest men, women and children. I Chiefs John Snow, Bill Mc- Lean and Frank Powderface! said: "The citizens of Alberta i should be complaining about the arbilnirv and dishonorable ac- tions df (be government, not the legal arid just aclion of the band council."
