Indians on Reservation Near Auburn Endure Primitive Conditions to Keep Tribe Intact
Historic lore that once eveloped the Os-Sut Indian tribe of the Digger nation, has been penetrated by The Sacramento Union’s staff members. They found present conditions a far cry from the once-thriving life of the tribe. In the picture at the upper left in this graphic layout of exclusive photographs, and left to right, are Mrs. Alice Ainsworth, widow of Al Ainsworth, who was a contractor for Indian affairs bureau in Sacramento until his death a year ago, William Freeman, the tribe’s Indian doctor with medicine man’s outfit, including eagle-feather headdress and owl-feather wands which were used in ceremonial dances, and Mrs. Martha E. Lemay, the tribe’s “matriarch” and mother of Mrs. Ainsworth. Mrs. Lemay acts most frequently as spokeswoman for the tribe.
Upper right is the oldest member of the tribe, “Aunt Jane” Lewis, believed by fellow-tribesmen to be 112, though the Indian affairs office lists her as “at least” 89. Center, left, is Mike Murray, 77, in front of one of the rickety shacks on the reservation. Center inset, the 11-months-old Joan Murray, granddaughter of Mike, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Hickey Murray. Center right is shown the irrigation ditch which is the only water supply for the reservation-cows bathe in it upstream; Mike Murray, left, his mother-in-law, Mrs. Anna Perris, center and his wife, Viola Murray. Bottom, left-The Murrays and Mrs. Perris trudge back up the quarter-mile stretch between their house and the water hole, while at the bottom center is Martha Lemay again, holding a recently completed bit of handicraft. The reservation is on Auburn Rancheria, two miles south and above Auburn. There are about 50 Indians on the reservation in winter, and only about 20 during the fruit season when young men and women are out working as fruit migrants. –Photos by Harlin Smith.

Indians Scalp Dinner But Are Held Hostage The Chineese turned the tables on the Indians yesterday and used their own advantage the old Redskin trick of holding hostages.
Mr. and Mrs. Cleveland Adams, Indian ranch
workers from Yolo County, were showing fourteen friends the sights
in Sacramento. They consumed copious quantities of beer over
sundry bars and then descended upon the New Republic Café
at 921 Third Street, for a Chineese dinner.
Mr. and Mrs. Adams told the waiter nothing was
too good for their guests. They forgot to mention neither they nor
their friends had any money left. That is, they did not mention it
until all the food was consumed and the waiter presented the bill
The irate restaurant owner held Mr. and Mrs.
Adams as hostages until the police arrived.
Friends raised the $7.80 today and the Indian
couple were released after Police Judge Will J. Carrragher
dismissed a charge of defrauding an innkeeper.
