They Protest AgainBt!Paying fornix Month.
Talequah, I. T., June 12. On July 1
the sum of 5100,000 will bo due the Chero
kee nation as a fourth semi-annual pay
ment from the Cherokee Live Stock asso
ciation. In view of President Harrison's
proclamation ordering the cattlemen tore-
move their hem on before October 1, the
association has sent a delegation to this
place consisting of Thomas Hutton and
Charles li. Aldndjce to confer with Chief
Mayes as to what action, if any, theChero-
roKee autuorities will take mtlie premises
When they arrived they learned that
Chief Mayes had left the capital for his
nome lour miles distant. The delegation
left yesterday morning for the chief's
home. They spoke very plainly and cared
to conceal nothing in regard to their mis
sion. Mr. Hutton says that he will lay
the situation before Chief Mayes and ask
some relief at the hands of the Cherokee
nation. When thev were asked if
the association would meet the July
payment thev answered: "We can't
promise that it will. We would dis
like to nav SI 00.000 for the use of a piece of
property lor six months and only be allow
ed to use it for three months. The associ
ation would hesitate to pay for six months
at the rate of 200,000 per annum, the
United States has forbidden us to ship any
more cattle into the strip this spring,
thereby depriving us of the advantage
guaranteed us by the Cherokee nation.
The association means to do what
is right by the nation, but will in
sist upon the compliance by the parties
with the contract existing between the na
tion and itself. Wo have been advised that
the treasurer of the Cherokee nation under
the now existing laws is not authorized to
receive any payment we might tender hiinkj
lor tlie useot the strip for the three months
we will be permitted to remain there un
less it be a full payment for six months.
It is, therefore, our purpose to ask the chief
to convene an extra session of the council
and that the law be so amended that mat
ters can be legally and equably adjusted
between all parties concerned."

cordance with the provisions of a recent

discharged under the provisions
of the lyoth article of war, which

a few days ago, so that it is about as fol
lows: "Anj' person who enlisted as a
soldier in the United States regular army,
and who deserted therefrom, shall be
granted a pardon by applying for it to the
Secretary of war, provided seven years have
elapsed since the date of his enlistment,
or two j ears from the date of the time of

Much Concern Caused by the Ques

bers of the Finance Committee.

WAsniXGTOX, June 12. The house cau
cus committee, which is charged with the
preparation of a national election bill on
lines agreed upon by the last caucus, has
been industriously perfecting the details
of the measure and has so far progressed
as to be able to send a rough draft of the
bill to the public printer. A problem that
is giving the committee some concern is
how to lormulate a provision for insertion
in the bill to carry out its desire
to prevent the wholesale and wrongful dis
entran'chisement of voters as alleged to
prevail in South Carolina and to meet the
alleged Virginia and North Carolina fraud
ulent practices in connection with the
"purging" of the lists of voters. It ap
pears that much difficulty is being expe
rienced in making the supervisory system
fill these needs, but the committee is confi
dent of its ability to solve the question.
THE SENATE PROCEEDINGS.
WASHIXGTOX, June 12. Mr. Edmund
"offered a resolution which went over till
tomorrow, appointing Edward K. Valen
tine sergeant-at-arms of the senate, to take
office on June 80, 1890.
Mr. Morrill gave notice that on Monday
next he would call up the senate bill in re
lation to agricultural colleges and would
address the senate thereon, and Mr. Piatt
gave notice that immediately after the
consideration of the silver bill he would
ask the senate to consider the bill for the
"admission of Wyoming as a state.
Among the mils reported irom the com
mittee and placed on the calendar, were
two senate bills to amend the polygamy
law, the house legislative, executive and
judicial appropriation bill.
Mr. Davis presented the conference re
port on the dependent pension bill and at
the request of Mr. Cullom proceeded to
explain it. As to the question of depen
dent parents lie said that all the change
made by the bill from existing law was
that whereas existing law required de
pendency to exist at the time of the sol
dier's death the pending measure merely re
quired dependency at the time of the ap
plication. The amount of the pension
'is the same as under the ex
isting laws. He went on to say that
the house substitute had contained a pro
vision for service pensions for the benefit
of all who had reached the age of GO years.
After much discussion that feature of the
bill had been entirelv eliminated. The
senate bill, he said, had fixed the rate of
pensions unqualifiedly at $12 a month but.
the conferees liad changed that and agreed
to a pension uot exceeding 512 and not less
Mr. Davis said that when tho bill was be
fore the senate he had estimated its cost
at $33,90S,000. He thought that the changes
made would add $4,000,000 to the cost. His
opinion was that the bill would add
about ;sl4,000,!OJ a year to the present cost
of pensions. He added as his opinion that
anv further conference would be useless.
The report went over and was ordered
printed with the bill as agreed to by the
The senate silver bill was then taken up
and Mr. Evarts addressed the senate. He
said congress was now prepared for the
adoption in some form or other a measure
which, as compared with any thing that
had been done in the interval between 1S73
and 1S90, was like the step of a giant as
compared with that of aside man -who
made three paces and then halted. Speak
ing of the proposed opening of the Ameri
can mints to tho silver of the world, Mr.
Evarts said with the difference in
ratios (lo in Europe aud 10 in
this country) that measure would
be utterly impracticable, especially
if it was desired also to cause the
opening of the mints abroad to silver.
The proposition to receive silver bullion'
over the counter or tue treasury aim pay
for it in certificates, leaving the transac
tion at the will of the owner of the bullion
had never approved itself to his judgment.
He regarded it as being a stop backward.
Money could never be safely treated as a
commodity. It was not to be treated as
anything but the force and propulsion of
Mr. Vance spoke in favor of the unlim
ited coinage ol silver.
Mr. Morgan began a free coinage speech,
but without concluding his jemarks yield
ed to a motion to adjourn.

before the house a letter from Mr. Mills,

The vote was then taken on agreeing to
the conference report on the anti-trust bill
and was lost 12 to 115.

ference with instructions to the house con
ferees to recede from the house amendment.
Mr. Stewart demanded the previous
question on his motion. Agreed to yeas

to yeas 106, nays 9S.
This amendment provides that every
contract or agreement entered into for the
nurnose of preventing the sale or purchase
any commodity transported from one state
or territory to be sold in 'another, or so
contracted" to be sold or to prevent compe
tition in the transportation of persons or
property from one state or territory into
another, shall be deemed unlawful within
the meaning of this act: provided that the
contract here enumerated shall not be
construed to exclude any other contract or
agreement declared unlawful in this act.

THE WORKOF THE HOUSE.
Washixgtox, June 12. It will not be
the fault of the house if the session runs
into the dog days. Work is weU advanced
in the popular" branch of congress. The
tariff bill has been passed. So has the sil
ver bilL Yesterdav's agreement disposeds
of new pension legislation. The regular
pension appropriation bill is out of the
way. So is the postoffice appropriation
bill. The same is true as to the diplomatic
and consular appropriation bill. In brief,
all but four of the appriation bills are out
of the way. Three of the four remaining,
Indian, agricultural and the sundry civil
have been reported to the house. They
are not of such a character as to excite
discussion, and can be put through in
The only work before the appropriations
committee is the general deficiency bill,
upon which the committee is now engaged.
Tariff, silver, pension and appropriation
legislation is out of the way so far as the
house is concerned. Twelve of the seven
teen contested election cases have been dis
posed of. Bills for the admission of Idaho
and Wyoming have passed the house and
are now on the senate calendar. The cus
toms administrative bill and the Oklahoma
bill have become laws. The fact is, there
is only one subject remaining of any con
sequence before the house, andithat is the
federal election bill. From this time on
the house awaits the pleasure bf the sen

on rivers and harbors, through Mr. Stew
art, of Texas, has favorably reported Mr.
Hatch's bill authorizing the construction
of a deep water harbor on the Texas coast

Capt. John Willetts, of San Antonio, was

A BUILDING BILL VETOED.
Washixgtox, Juno 12. Tho president
today returned to the house without his
approval the bill for the erection of a pub
lic building at Tuscaloosa, Ala. The pres
ident in his veto message says: "In the
present uncertain state of the public rev
enues and expenditures resulting from
pending and probable legislation, there is
to my mind an absolute necessity that ex
penditures for public buildings should be
limited to cases where the public needs are.
very evident and very imperative. It is
clear that this is not such a case."
THE TARIFF BILL.
WASTtrXGTOX", June 12. At this morn
ing's session of the Republican members of
the senate finance committee they finished
their preliminary consideration of the pro
visions of the tariff bill. Now, as one of
them remarked, thev will get back to tho'
first of the bill and begin to do hard work:
upon it anu settle tne disputed points
which have heretofore been passed over

Even Force Used to Stamp Out Pleuro
pneumonia. New York, June 12. The stringent
measures adopted by the secretary of agri
culture to stamp out the virulent disease
of pleuro-pueumoniain cattle from its last
stronghold in the counties, of Kings and
Union, on Long Island, has created tre
mendous excitement and roused the dairy
men to an attitude of armed rebellion. It
is understood that Secretary Rusk has re
cently received private intimation that un
less this disease be effectively extirpated, a
severe quarantine would be proclaimed bv
England against the importation of Ameri
can cattle. This will paralyze one of the
most important branches of American in
dustry for the time being and result in in
calculable loss to western cattle raisers.
Last week Secretary Rusk spent two days
in New York and energetically impressed
upon the government agent for the eastern
states, the chief inspector for the state of
New York, the urgent necessity of gather
ing in and killing all cattle diseased or ex
pofed. A great raid was therefore organ
ized and executed by the two gentlemen
named at the head of a large posse of the
bureau employes. Dairymen were not
found unprepared for vigorous resistance.
They launched paving stones, brick bats
and other missus upon the invaders. Hand
to hand encounters took place and in some
instances pistols were drawn. Some of the
herds were so strongly defended that the
bureau forces were unable to capture them.
It is understood that there will be other
raids and that Secretary Rusk will not
modify the stringency of his measures un
til this last lurking place of pleuro-pneu
monia beef is effectually conquered and
BUCKET SHOP DEALING CRIMINAL.

Helexa, Mont., June 12. The reports oH
the threatened Indian hostilities mMon-
tana are largelv sensational. Accounts re
ceived here implicate the Cheyenne Indians
in depredatkm9 on cattle herds. The only
murderous crime committed was the
killing of Robert Ferguson, foreman of
the Heramasah Cattlecompany. The In
dians wera jailed and are now waiting trial
at Miles City. Recent movements of a
band of Cheyennes led to a suspicion that
they were making ready to go on the war
path and the military took prompt meas
ures to prevent the outbreak if meditated.
Governor Toole said thja afternoon that
he had an officer at Miles City who took no
share ia the fears of the people on the
ranges. There are soldiers enough to cope
with any Indians meditating mischief in
Custer county. The opinion here is that
there will be no conflict and that the
Cheyennes will be kept in control without

A "Woman Claiming to be General Lyon's
Daughter Living, in Poverty.
Dexver, Col., June 12. A great sensa
tion has been created in Denver over the
discovery that a woman cooking for a
grader's camp near this city claims to be a
daughter of the famous General Lyou, who
svas'killed at the battle of Wilson creek,
Mo. It has caused considerable discussion
in Grand Army cirles, and the question
has been raised as to whether General
Lyon was a married man.
Mr. and Mrs. John Dell came to Denver
in May from the Chickasaw nation. They
were destitute, and Dell being in poor
health, his wife began to cook for graders.,"". r ri.ic- VA rh,. ,X

in a talk with DoLim. the contractor. Mrs.
"Dell had a small picture of General Lyon
which she carried about with her. Uelap
noticed it otfe day, and making some
remark about it, Mrs. Dell said:
"Yes, it is a picture of General
Lyon. He was my father.-" The idea
of a descendant of a famous general
engaged in cooking for a lot of rougn look
ing men struck DeLap as somewhat incon
gruous and he mentioned the matter to
some G. A. R. men of his acquaintance in
the eity. They, too, were stirred to patriot

Tho Tesulfc of the agitation was
the appointment of a committee. An
investigation was made favora
ble to the claims of Mrs. Dell, but
further inquiries were made. Mr A. P.
Rittenhouse wrote to General L. E. Phelps,
late commander of the G. A. R. for the
department of Missouri. General Phelps
is a son of General J. D. Phelps, whose(
wife, it is said, helped to nurse General
Lyon after his fatal w6und at Wilson
creek. It is said that General J. E. Phelns
did not rememlier ever having heard his
mother speak of General Lyon as though
he was a married man, and the residents
of Springfield, Mo., where General
Lyon was taken to die did not
remember it either, and he was in
clined to discredit the story. Mr. Rit
tenhouse showed that letter at Lincoln
-post. Although ho himself did not doubt
that Mrs. Dell was a daughter of General
Lyon, ho had some doubts as to whether
tho general had ever been married.
An effort was made to have Mr. Dell
given a city appointment, but when tho
question as to whether General Lyon had
ever been married was raised. Mayor Lon
doner, of Denver, refused to make the ap
pointment, it being claimed by some that
Mrs. Dell is an imposter.
