It is the purpose of the department through Mr. Wilson of rendering licet growers all the nssiidiince it can in con'.rolling Indian labor an 1 miikiuir the reiniineration the Indians receive of the greatest value 1 o thilnselvcs. The iV'parlmont proposes to el.iso the ration houses to Indians who are utile to work when the call is made for help by liect growers, �tul thv* Indians will �>c given to understand that thoso who respond toth.it call will I e given greatest consideration by the Indian IVpnrinu'iU und Reservulior. ollicials. it is propo-el to give tho IniAuns a regular pay day either ivt the eu�l of the month or ut the eoiH'tus.rm of 1I>.� work they have in hand, und a representative from the reservation will lie present to assist in the sett'leinent. Pay the Indians bills and take a.v of the residue that ho may get si me instead of wasting what he has worked for so arduously. A movement will ,be iiiinifHliat.ily begun to the establishment of a u '.-form prlco for the different k-.iwls of work at "which Indians are wnploynl. Tho wisdom of such a step is at once apparent us It will set the Indian mind at rest as to what he is to rut'oivo for his labor, which ii is hoped will have tho effect of remov -Ing his ever present desire for changf of place and employer. There are or. tho reservation approximately 1200 Indians nnd thr.ro aro now employed in tho fields about Raymond nearly 1000 of them, nlrmidy there is a growing unrest and they aro preparing for nn exodus so us to bo on tho reservation on Nov 8th, which is treaty day to got their treaty money. Thoy have been already Informed that treaty day nns lieen postponed to !* who re -iurn to the reservation at present or until inter the Ia-cI s.ttsoii is o\ er.

(ioon STORY ON THK MAYOR 1 1 (' ran brook Herald.) There is a good story on Mayor Rogers in regard to how he had his horse in pound, mid the manner in .which it wus got out. It stilts that 'the jailer was working with his prisoners on the street near th;Mnayir's residence one day Inst week, I while employed In moving large stones from the street, he noticed a Ibnld-fnced horse eating a few spears j of grass that were growing along the side of the 1 tile creek that flows by I the mayor's house. The facts are j that the mayor hud a horse that had iI ecu driven in his delivery wagon 'and was badly troubled with a crack 'od hoof. Mr. Rogers thought it might, bo well for the anipial to graze J11 round along the creek bed and in , the marsh to soften up the hoofs of the nuiinnl. Tho jailer, who was working with u number of pritotr-rs near Mr. Roger's residence, saw tho hois." and figured out in his mincRho profit that would accrue to him by impounding tho animal. So when ihe bells rang for noon and the whiatles blew, the jailer looked at the animal standing quietly in tho marsh unl said to himself. 'Why should 1 not make my !.� the by-laws of the city. Therefore, he ivrote n note to the jailer, ns fol lows and gave it to llr Taylor the driver of h,s team Mr. .Inner. I understand that von have my horse in pound. Please tie � livr the annual to the bearer of tins note and '.nform him as to the c�i.;t and I will semi the money nt one.'. (�. T. Rogers. Mr. Taylor, who knew the e'rcum stances very well, was much incensed at the fact that the horse should \h matter ended. Matthew Smith, o'f Hampton, hits jheen appointed a member of the P. ii:. I.
