Indians of which Thomas L. Slcane
of Tender, Neb., is president, ;.nd
several Indian members of the so

with close attention as Judge Evans
outlined the claims Mr, Sloane had
for the place, which were accentu

While no promises were given it
is known that the differences in the

Mr. Sloane has strong endorsements,
it is believed that ex-congressman
