Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - March 26, 1908, Lethbridge, Alberta L E T H IJ Q e., A i. a E R T-A T H U ft 8.Pf.Ay . M A R 0 H 2 fl , I 0 0 8 , WORK AMONGST THE INDIANS AROHDEAOON RENNISON FROM THE SHORES OF HUDSON BAY TELLS INTERESTING STORY - (Winnipeg Free Pross) Although he has labored in the dlo-cuso of MooHonoo in the far north for over ten years, Ven, Arolidoaeon Bon-' nison has not lost the gift of do-(luence and during the whole of hia diccourao: yoBtorday evening at Holy Trinity church he held the congregation spellhound. Taking ns his text the words, "Am 1 my hrothcr'a keeper?" the preacher traced the indifference of the ages down to the present time and showed hoM' miin Avns coming more nnd more to realize his resppMsibllity toward hia brother. "As men and wo men Htudy missions," he said, "they arc inevitably nttrncted by the murmuring sound of the myriads of the east, but wo often forgot the poor, benighted Indian-the unalluring unattractive owner, aa he was once oi this country", Avho lies iielplesa, sup pliant, voiceless at bur very door. "I liave had the honor to labor for more tlian ten years in the diocesv of Moosoncc on. the shores of Hudson Bay. To the north is a great inland sea and this is inhabited along, the fihoues liy Indians ond n few whitt traders, representative of tiie Hud' son's Bay company and by mission aries of the Church of England Tliere is one Roman Catholic nils sion to be found in the whole diocese We arc a secluded people in tho' country. 'Our mail is obtained from Canada tour times a year. Twice ir the summer the canoe leaves Moost Factory and wends its way up tht river to the railroad and twice ir winter the Indians leave on snow.-shoes and walk the distance. I lefi on Feb. 1. for instance, with an In dian ,an;nough never fails to get rid of any cninor complaint. Originally the Indian was a wor-jhipper of demons. He believed in the propitiation of demons and it is very hard to persuade an Indian that sickness comes sometimes from i natural cause. Very often, an In-Jian with no particular reason for it, says he is going to die, and, it he is determined upon it he will die. Only a Few Thousand Left "1 want to enlist your sympathy .'or these poor children of the wilderness," continued the preacher. "This vost country from the Pacific to the Atlantic was once their undisput-d possession, and as I stand in this nagniflcent cliurcli tonight where the Indian once held his camping ground )n- land of his own, I think of the !ew. thousands that arc left of this picturesque people, and see them passing rapidly as they are over the 'Great Divide." '"Their lands are being inhabited by .vhite men; the game from the coun-'ry is being depleted, and. unless the Indian can take to himself wings, Arhat shall he do to preserve his life? Physiologists tell' Us that in ancient imes, long before the dawn-of hu-nan life, whales, were quadrapeds nd walked upon dry ground, but )wing to the terrific struggle for ox-slence with other � monsters fiercer han themselves, they were driven it last into the water and found security and refuge in the ocean. And inless the Indian by a � process of �volution can evolve to himself fins ind pass into the ocean, I do not -.mow where he can rest, ond even 'here he might not be safe, if it should happen that lie should grow a lide that might be useful or valuable tor commerce. "Christian Canada owes something to this poor Indian and when we think of the great deatiny that God has before this country lot us ro-menibor that to whom much has been given, of lliem will much bo expected." Closing with a quotation from the "Parable" by James Eussell Lowell ,the archdeacon said: "Let us beware that from under the heavy foundation of our national prosperity there does not ascend to the li.s-tening ears of the Lord God of Sabbath the despairing cry of the poor disenchanted Indian, for I believe, my friends, tliat God will deal with this country as this country does with the Indian, 'YiJRtt'lfis.STRAIGHT DfeNVAL All Portirt' Tflnderlng; for Timber Limits Fairly'Tr�at8d Ottawa, March 26.-Miss Munroe,! clerk in the land oommiaSlorier'a oi' flco waa before the. lOotnmona publio accounts committee yeatcrdivy in oon-ncctlon with woatern timber, tendora.

She was always present In the land commissioner's room wheii tenders were opened. She never saw any thing in connection with this business to arjuse her suapiclpns. / J. Q. Tiirriff former land commissioner and now M. P. for East As-sin-iboiai was called and gave a categbr-icol denial to all charges of improper conduct wliile land commissioner. He said, he was a party man but in his oflleittl life of six years he never ah lowed party ism to make him unfair to friends or opponents. Regarding notice given to public'in bidding for timber lands in question, Turriff, said the department hod merely followed the practice which had existed. In regard to opening of tenders, Turriff declared that if he had known as-much as he knew now he would have had two or throe ofiicials present at these ceremonies and- would thereby saved himself from aspersions that wore now being made against his conduct. Tenders had been always opened in the presence of his secretary i TO DRIVE BUFFALO EIGHTY MILES Overland from Elk Park to Butte River Reserve-Big Undertak-" ing for This Summer IN A HURRY TO GET HOME 12chnontoii, Afarch 24.-Howard Bouglas, formerly superintendent of the National Park at DanfT, recently appointed commissioner of Dominion parks, is in the city.

Last year one herd was brought in in June, and another came in In October, When tho two herds met there was a fight, and, I am sorry to relate, clwcn wore forced into the river and wore drownctl. But that will be made up in a nhort time as eighty or one hundred calves arc expected; There are still some throe  hundred to come in from .Montana, and Jlichael Pablo is now trying to round them up. lie has built a fence some twen-. ty-throe miles from the mountains to his home, and tho buffalo striking that are 'driven into the corral near his house. "I>ast year I'ablo had 185 horses and. 03 rldors on tho rnngo for three weeks. This waa rather expensive, nnd ho had adopted the now tactics, claiming that thoy will bo cheaper a�d will bo a more effective method of rounding up the bufTalo. "Tho throe hundred that havo.still to come in will, tjo driven straight to 'tho park nt the Battio Illvor.

Thw-o is still nearly 800 tons left. Tho very mild winter mado it possible for them to forage for. themselves.
