SHOWS THE INDIAN CHARACTER
Chief Blue Horse of the 8ioux Indians
Pleads for Justice and Payment
for Lands Which. Have
Mr. Sheldon of the Nobraska Stato
Historical society has recently ro
colved n letter that, taken In connec
tion with othec events which have re
cently occurred, brings back vividly
tho early hlBtory of Nebraska. The
lotter is from Chlof Blue Horse, ono
of the most prominent members of the
Sioux tribe, who is still living, and
ono of the signers of the great Sioux
treaty of 18G8.
Although Chief Blue Horso has been
one of the most powerful men of his
tribe, he Is today very poor, and his
lotter to Mr. Sheldon was Inspired by
tho hope that ho would bo ablo to got
some relief through him. By the treaty
of 18G8 the Sioux Indians granted to
tho govornment the land botweon tho
Platto and Niobrara rivorB, but rJ
sorved tho right to hunt on It. Set
tlers camp hi and occupied tho land,
and the Indians havo never been -paid
by the govornment for the hunting
rights, which have been destroyed by
tho settlement of the land. Chief Bluo
Horso feels that congress should pay
him $5,000 for these rights, which havo
Prominent Chief Dies.
Chief American Horso of the Oga
lalla Sioux Indians, and a relativo and
friend of Chief Bluo Horse, died last
Tuesday at tho age of seventy-six.
Chief American Horse at tho tlmo of
his death was recognized as tho ablest
American Indian living. Ho was also
a signer of the great treaty of 18G8
and his death leaves but very Tew of
tho signers still nllve.
The Sioux Indians still feol that
Justice ha not been done them and
that they should lie paid for their
hunting rights which nave been de
stroyed. The white man does not
value highly mere right to hunt, but
this was practically all that the In
dians did with tlielr land, and to thoni
it was the means by which thoy made
their living, nnd represented to them
a very real value.
Letter Is Typical.
Tho lotter Is typical of the Indian
mind. It is rambling and Jumps from
ono point to another Just as they seem
to occur to the author as ho is writ
ing. It is not until tho last few sen
tences that ho really gets to the point
of his story. He explains how ho re
fused to join two war parties and how
ho has always been n good Indian
and a friend of the "pale-faces." Ho

One of tho moBt curious parts of tho
letter is where tho old Indinn says
that next spring he is going south to
look over his ground nnd soo who
is living on it. Ho also tells how ho
Bigned a permit for tho railroads to
build through his land when all tho
other Indians were opposed to It, and
how ho Is now ablo to ride freo wher
ever he wlBhes because of this action.
FRESHMEN ABANDON GREEN CAP.
Chicago Students Disgusted With the
Symbolic Class Emblem.
Tho freshmen at Chicago are to dis
continue woaring their green caps. So
thoy have decided, acting according
to a suggestion of President Dymond,
a motion passed abolishing tho In
signia of ' freshmanhood. No more
green caps are to bo seen about tho
campus until noxt year.
Dymond said that he had ro'colvod
a suggestion from one of tho girls
that tho fair members of tho class
adopt n green armband, and asked for
a motion to that effect. Such a mo
tion was not, howovor, forthcoming, as
ono of tho young ladles moved that
tho girls do not adopt a distinctive
class emblem, Dymond misundorstood
tho motion and in repeating said, "It
has been moved and seconded that
girls adopt a greon arm-band.i TJiIb
immediately brought forth a general
howl of disapproval from tho glrlb,
and Dymqnd revised his motion to. tho
satisfaction of tho dissenting party.
In this, form tho rifotlon wob Immedi
ately passed by ununimouB dWnt.
