Indian School Arson

Will Arrest Indian Students

Deputy United States Marshal Tomlinson went to Santee Agency, where he was to make several arrests among the young Indian pupils, who are implicated in setting fire to the Government school houses. The large Government boarding school was burned last summer, and two smaller ones have gone up since. Major Clements, agent of the Santee Indians, has gained a confession from six, and more are being looked up.
