    Theodore Hudon Beaulieu, editor, is on the left. Augustus Hudon Beaulieu, publisher, is on the right. Augustus Beaulieu founded "The Progress" (White Earth's first weekly newspaper) in 1886. It later became "The Tomahawk." The Indian Agent at White Earth initially confiscated the printing press of "The Progress," accusing Augustus Beaulieu of having the intention of "breaking down the influence of the United States Indian Agent with the Indians." This censure was overturned in US Federal Court. Printing resumed in 1887. (Information courtesy of Gerald Vizenor)
