Tho newspaper gossip about an unpleas
antness existing In thu married relations
of Mrs. Nelllo tlraut Sartorls and her hus
band does not surprise those of our citizens
who weiu familiar with their courtship.
They look upon theo reports as tho natural
sciUenco of tho uncongenial to use a
mild phase alliance .Miss Nelllo was n
girl of sweet disposition and gentlo man
neis, her father's Idol, while Sartorls was
a rough, coarse-grained and decidedly vul
gar, low-bred Lngllshman. Ills general
course conduct, hi connection with tho fact
that hu had exhibited somo of Miss Nellie's
letters to him, accompanied with gross re
marks, to pcisons lu a Wisconsin town,
whero an accomplished young lady had re
jected his addresses, caused solicitude nmoii"
ninny of (iencral llrant's warm personal
filcnds, and somo of them consulted as to
the propriety of Informing him of Sartorls'
conduct with n view of regaining possession
ot Miss Nellie' letters.
Senator Matt Carpenter finally consented
to broach tho delicate subject to (lenernl
(irant. Ho called nt the Whlto House, and
hi us delicate a manner as possible com
menced relating tho current scandal ns to
Saitoils' notorious conduct, when tho (ien
cral quietly remarked: "That will do, Sena
tor; but my daughter Is engaged to .Mr. Sar
totls, and the wedding will tnko place."
Senator Cainentcr, lu speaking of thu In
terview, said ho never felt so chagrined as
ut tho President's abrupt closing of tho con
versation, and that he would never again
under any circumstances attempt to advlso
about tho domestic nllalrs of any one. It
was well known that (leneral (Irant was
opposed to tho alliance, but when Ids
daughter's alfcetlim wero engaged hu
acquUeecd, and would listen to no argument
or suggestion to thu contrary.

hu stopped n day at Southhampton to call

parents of Miss Nellie's husband. Ho was
coidlally rccclu-d by them, but In the
couisoof conversation Mrs. Sai toils as
tonished tho cx-Mlnlstcr to Hiissla by ro-
innil.lng "that she didn't see what thero was
about Algernon, her son, to eatlso tlio
daughter of the President of the gieat
L'nlted States to fall III love with mid

piy, I very great.
In connection with tin case a writer In
tho Mute speaks of a mylcilou disappear
ance on the night of tho Madison murder,
which Is ncutlous coincidence if nothing
"A German was employed lu tlio north
wesleni pait of tho city, lie spnko very
little English and had few Intimates. On
the night of March 'JO tho party went out,
which was uotu usual thing. He remained
nil night, which was a very unustril occur
rence, no caine iiacK to ms emtuovers
about noon March 1, lojklug n if ho had
been sleeping 'in the red laud' district on
mother earth. He was rather unkempt, as
well us unsteady on his feet. Ho m.ido no
explanations; hi fact, his employer was not
pleated nnd hu gnio him his discharge, lie
took what was due him mid his gripsack
and ha never been seen or even heard of
since. This disappearance may have no
bearing on this ease. It Is not presumed
Hint It has, but ts simply written out as a
coincidence. Nothing was ever said or
written about the man's abrupt dcpnrtuic,
because ho was a stranger hero and had no
filcnds to Inquire after lilin. aud was not
therefore pattleiilarly missed ; ,lu fact, his
employer stated thai lu tho hurry of busi
ness hu never thought of the two matters lu
connection until after the trial of Cluvcrlus

Tlio stutter or tliislnt'ss to which It
lion. I). W. Hitshjhcad, chief of tho
Cherokee Nation hi tho Indian Tcriltory, Is
nt tho National. Tho chief Is somewhat
noii-cominlttnl regarding his visit to tho
Capital, declaring that ho camo hither for
tho purposo of looking into a liltlu matter
of business that needs straightening.
It is learned fiom other sources that the
little mailer ot business Is thought to be a
snarl which theCheiokcu Indians aud tho
Government have gotten Into over a pay
ment of RUO,O0U mado several years ago.
Tho Indians, ft seems, had an Idea that the
money was for uu Increased valuation of
lands which they ceded to tho Government
on which to place other tribes. It appears
on the books of tho Government that the
money Is In reality on tho pineliaso of tho
entire section of laud known on tho map as
the "Cherokee strip."
There arc seven million acres of land hi this
strip, and it was assessed at astonishingly
low rales, somo of It at 4!) cents', and thu
balance nt 70 cents per acre, whereas tho
hind is In reality now worth all tho way
from $'J to $10 per acre. The former as
sessed valuation Is a mere bagatelle. The
land Is good, and it Is near the Kansas line,
not far from towns and cities, and railroads
nro fast getting down that way. Tho mis
understanding Is a very serious matter, both
for tho Government and llio Indians. Chief
llushvhcad Is a man ot business, and Is
probably Ihe most Intelligent and wide
awake of mi) of the Indian chiefs.
