Red Indian chiefs to interview king

Wednesday, August 1 – 1906
There arrived at Liverpool yesterday from Canada by the liner Lake Manitoba three Red Indian chiefs and a leading tribesman from the reservations in British Columbia. They were entered on the passenger list as Chief Joe Capellas, Chief Chas. Filpayment, Chief Basil, and Simon C. Pierro.

They have come to this country with the intention of urging King Edward to protect their game reserves, fearing that if game continues to be killed at the present rate the tribes will be in danger of starvation in winter.

They proceeded by the London train. All the party wore Indian costumes of Buffalo hide robes with feathers in their hats.
