Congressman Exposes Prac
ticesIndians Shamefully
Washington. - Aug. 2. The congress
man from New York. Dr. Theron Akin,
made some startling disclosures In ex
posing the so-called National attorneys
of the-dend Indian tribes In Oklahoma,
and his assault and exposure of the
methods of the attorneys for tha live
Osage tribe wps in his usual drastic
manner of handling subjects of this
The Interior department was handled
without gloves. Akin said:
"The records disclose that these gen
tlemen have on file, approved or pending
approval ten Indian contracts, which If
they were all approved, would bring
them in an annual salary In excess of
160,000, with contingencies that would
net these gentlemen more than 11,000,
008. That while they were representing,
or trying to represent, and had contracts
with ten different tribes, they had drawn
fees from the Osage tribe alone, since
He further said:
"I submit to my colleagues In this
house, if tha United State la tha guar,
dtan of the Indians and the Indian bu
reau is competent to manage their af
fairs, why should it be necessary for
on tribe of Indians to pay attorneys
a cash compensation per annum far
greater than the" salary of the head of
the Indian bureau T The salary of a
member of congress, or a cabinet of
ficer, Is a mere bagatelle as compared
with the compensation of this firm of
attorneys, when you take into considera
tion their annual salary, expense money,
end contingent fees provided for by
their contracts."
"Mr. Kappler of this remarkable firm
has the honor of being the compiler
of two volumes authorized and paid for
by congress, under the title 'Indian Af
fairs Laws and Treaties.' It is a work
that any competent clerk could perform
much more efficiently than did the au
thor. It Is said that when he goes
among the Indians in quest of. con
tracts, he carries these two volumes
containing his name, and printed at the
expense of the United States, aa an
exhibit of hit masterly legal attain
ments. These books, beautifully bound,
and printed at the government printing
office, are looked upon by the unsus
pecting Indian aa credentials of such
solemnity that to question them would
be an offense against the laws of the
United States."
Poor Lo! They never quit handing It
to him, and in this ease, if the doctor's
reckoning in correct, he got a lemon
both large and yellow. It Is said that
none of the Indian attorneys will vote
for Akin, and that not even one of them
is his admirer.
The remarks of Congressman Akin of
July 26, 1912, appears in the Congress
ional Ilecard of that date commencing
on pane 10,190, there being attached
thereto the contracts and other docu
mentary exhibits.
