Indian Policeman in Washington. Winner SD. Frank Janis a well-known Sioux Indian who lives a few miles north of Winner was notified this week that he had been appointed a member of the police force guarding the United States capitol and office building of the House of Representatives at Washington DC. The position pays a good salary and lasts during the entire season of Congress. The position was secured through the intercession of friends of Mr. Janis at Winner and Congressman Gandy of this district. Frank Janis is an industrious Indian citizen with large farming and stock interests which has been built up mostly through his own efforts. This is the first occasion whereby recognition has been given a representative of the Sioux in Tripp county. A 14 year old daughter of Mr. Janis won a gold medal a couple of years ago at Carlisle in an efficiency contest wherein all the Indian colleges in the United States were represented.
