(From a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN, Sept 14. (Special.) Again
haa tha aland taken by former Land Com
missioner Folmer In the matter of the Boyd
county settlers been vindicated by the De
partment of the Interior. Land Commis
sioner Eaton yesterday afternoon received
from the department a decision holding
that the land In controversy belonged to
the permanent school fund of the atate and
not to the settlers who claim It. The ap
peal from tha decision of Mr. Folmer waa
taken by O. W. McCright. The controversy
started when tha legislature authorised tha
land commissioner and the governor to
deed the land to the settlers. Mr. Folmer
refused to sign the deed because he held
thla land belonged to the atate and that
the settlers had no right to locate upon it.
Because Folmer and former Attorney Gen
eral Prout could not agree upon the line
of defense to be adopted by the atate In
the suit, Mr. Folmer employed Captain
Murfin and Judge Ryan to look after the
interest of the state. Governor Mickey
vetoed the bill which was passed by the
legislature to pay these attorneys for their
Balance In Fair Fond.
The state fair board met last nlgbt to
check up the receipts and expenditures of
the state fair and at the close of the meet
ing the gratifying announcement was made
that the board had on hand S14.R8.67 and

"Indian trust and heirship funds held on
deposit to their credit are aubject to

Such is the gist of an important decision
handed down by Judge Munger In the
United Stataa circuit court, Thuraday
morning in tha case of the United Stataa.
against tha oounty of Thurston, state of
An effort had been made by tha county
treasurer and tax officials of Thurston
county to assess, for taxation, some $70,000
Indian heirship funds belonging to the
Winnebago and Omaha tribes of Indians
that had been realized from the sale of
Indian lands formerly belonging to these
Indiana and located In Thurston county.
This fund was on deposit to tha credit of
the Indians In tha Security National bank
of Sioux City, subject to check by the
Indians under certain restrictions and
rulea made by the secretary of the interior
In order to protect the Indians against
their general Improvidence and ahiftless
ness, and was made payable to them In
sums of $10 per month each, or In a greater
sum If the prudential considerations would
United States District Attorney Baxter
on behalf of the United States enjoined the
collection of this tax by the Thureton
county authorlites on the ground that the
fund waa a trust fund and not aubject to
taxation any more than the lands would
be. Tha Thurston county officials, rep
resented by County Attorney W. E. Whit
comb, Thomas L. Sloan, of that county and
Attorney Corbett of Sioux City, demurred
to the bill and Injunction applied for by
tbe United States authorities and this de
murrer waa argued during tha present
Gist of Opinion.
In handing down his memoranda opinion
In the case. Judge Munger, In the lengthy
course of It says:
I'pon the granting by congress to the In
dian of the fee title to land without any
conditions, such land unquestionably would
be subject to taxation the same as land the
title to which belonged to any other citizen;
or, In other words, the property of an In
dian who has become a citizen of the
United States under the act of congress
mentioned Is subject to taxation under the
laws of the state the same as like property
held In like manner by any citizen of the
It was not the Intention of congress that
the secretary of the Interior, as a condition
Of giving his approval, should provide that
the United States should retain the fund
derived from the sale of these lands. Under
the regulations of the secretary of the In
terior the fund Is not deposited to the
credit of the United States, but to the
credit of the Indian. If any trust relation
exists between the United States and the
Indians as to the fund It is by virtue of a
private contract made by the Indian and
not by virtue of any act of congress.
I am clearly of the opinion that the
United States has not such a beneficial In
terest In the fund In question as to ex
empt such fund from taxation by the
state; hence the demurrer Is sustained and
the bill is dismissed for want of equity.
The decision is one of the most Important
recently given in reference to Indian affairs

ter part of May I could not turn over In bed nnd was almost as helpless as a baby. I
was a mere skeleton. I was advised to take Duffy's Pure Malt Whiskey, and It cer
tainly Is better than any medicine I ever took. Today, at (A, I am In perfect henlth
and never have to call on a phvslclan. Duffy's Is my constnnt medicine, and I never
will be without It." MRS. MARY GRIFFIS, Albion, Pa. May 24, 1905.
