The Cheyenne State Leader for April 26, 1917: 30,000 Acres "Offered" on the Reservation

I've pretty much halted the daily newspaper updates from a century ago, while still posting some directly to the 100 Years Ago Today Subreddit.  This one is one I ran across that I'm posting here, as some thing linger and linger and linger.

The story, of course, to which I refer is the one noting that 30,000 acres were being opened up on the Reservation. 

Things like this happened all the time, and into the mid 20th Century, but the problems this has created have been endless.  It's shocking to read about now, but at the time, wasn't thought of as a problem by most.
