Much of Agent Smith 'I correspondence deoU with the financial affelrt

communication on the budget.
I ha the honor to submit tht following at my rtporl of the
nature and progress of the work at this Agency during On month
ending June 30'.
During the month mart or less aflht Indian! have been off
for a few dayt, at thi fUhery or gathering roott and the tariler kinds
of berries, The unusually tevere winltr pretty well exhausted their
nock qf provUlou, and hence necessitated the gathering of their old
food luppUat, At this time nearly all are upon or returning to the
ruervatlon to participate In the 4' qf July festivities. The physician
report ihowt a gain of 'one in the population by birth. The number of
met treatad wot 41 of which 33 were restored. There have been no
deaths reported. One, or more of tht S persons now remaining under
treatment may not recover, at they are In a critical condition.
General Health and Sanitary tandllknt
the general health and tanltary condition of the Indiana is
very good, and I hope for a continued improvement.
Day and Boarding School
The teachen report shows 20 dayt taught, with an average
attendance of 39 11 Progress hat been made in ttudlet and by the
girls in learning to cut and fit garments, and making up of the tame,
under the direction of the Asst Teacher. A few weeks vacation will be
given, extending over the National holiday season and haying, early
harvest and annual visit qf heads of families to the fisheries.
Tht Saw Hill
hat been running the entire month cutting upwards of 43.000 ft of
lumber, for Agency use, ana principally for Indians.
The Grist MiU
Was that down to finish repairs and put up the new mill ttones or
'Strab Mill', Since its completion, it hat ground as occasion
demanded as there was but little grain to grind.
lingular Employe t
. i report but one. Mr Wm McCorkle, who superintends the
repairing of the Crist mill and testing up of the 'Straub Mill'. In
addition to the remarks entered upon 'Monthly Report of Irregular
Employee' for June l$Sl, 1 would toy that, owing to Ue and snow the
mill was not fully repaired last December. MrL H. White who wot
then employed as an authorized employe, could not make It convenient
to finish the work in time to me balance of the appropriation before
end of fiscal year, hence Mr. McCorkle was engaged, and completed
the repairing and in addition setup the new mill stones. His work
gives entire satisfaction.
Apart of them assisted in the repairing of the Crist Mill and
the rest were busy in the carpenter A blacksmith shops and the saw
mill. They also assisted me In the erection of a school house at the
These have had but little to do in the way of making arrests.
Several of the force will not renew their services, and should the past
number be continued, will have to make some new selections.
During the month the Clerk was busy in the office and making
issues etc. The Sawyer divided his time b&ween running the saw mill,
and assisting In repairing the flouring mill The Supt of Farming
looked after the farming Interests, hauled in saw logs and hauled down
lumber for repairing Mill, and also assisted a few days in the new
school house for the Warm Springs, The Laborer for the Piutes aside
from Ids duty as Interpreter and their assistant and adviser has put in
some time, repairing the Agency mill, Improving the roads etc.
I hope for advice at the earliest possible moment as to what
employes I am to have during the present fiscal year. 1 have asked
only for those that I thought were actually needed.
Payment of Employes
All my employes have been paid for services last quarter
except the Clerk and Sawyer. When the funds for 1' A. 2' qr was
received April 6' I did not examine the different appropriations to see
whether there was a sufficient amount to pay for both quarters, taking
it fbr granted that my estimate had been fully doubled giving me the
same amount for 2' qr as for 1' qr. A few days ago I noticed the
deficiency and immediately sent a telegram (June 27') hoping there by
the sooner to get the funds, though principally hoping to enable you to
draw on funds for that fiscal year, should you so desire. The mistake
was perhaps owing to the language used in making my estimate in that
Isold 'a clerk and Sawyer Q $300,00' Instead a ciert and a Sawyer
Q SXXX 00 each, though the amount required fbr both was carried out
making $950.00 for one quarter, which doubled would be $1900.00.
while but $1500.00 was sent; less $32.50 on hand. Also pay of
Apprentices was not doubled, but as the Industrial Teachers services
were discontinued April 1' I had a surplus of 'Civilisation f-id ' to
make good the deficiency.
Semester grades due around January 31.
