Full Text of the President's Thanks
giving Proclamation Puyallup
It waa expected that the vexed ques
tions rearardins tha PuvalluD Indian .
reservation at Tacoma would be settled
by the commission which waa sent out
there by an act of the last Congress, but
it seems that this commission has not
done what they were expected to do,
and the question at issue is aa far from
settlement as before. The Indiana have
bargained away some of their most val
uable lands, rneir lands are neetiea
for the development of Tacoma as a city,
and they are useless to the Indians, ex
cept for what they can get for them.
The matter of the individual and tribal
riahta of the Indians was supposed to be
determined by the commission, also the
rights of the men who have bargained
with the Indians for their lands, but
the commission's report, now with the
Secretary, is lar from eatisiactory, ana
will be little or no help in aiding him to
make a recommendation to Congress.
The Puyallup matter will have to bs
fought all over again tins winter.
