armed men rode to the court house this

while two guns were aimed at his breast.
In the mean time an alarm was given
and soon about sixty men marched to the
court house, armed with pistols and guns.
Headed by Judce Chrisman they drove off
the mob withouc bloodshed. Later a mil

peace. Doubtless the grand jury will find
indictments against the leaders.

Washington, May 4 Secretary Gresh
am reaffirms today his statement of yes
terday, that he bad sent telegrams to the
governors of certain western states, asking
them to take precautions agamt violence
to the Chinese when the exclusion act
takes effect. The text of the dispatch oer
his signature given out for publication by
Governor Pennoyer of Otegon was correct.
The secretary declines to comment on the
answer sent to him by Governor Pennoyer.
t "I sent a perfectly respectful message to
Governor Pennoyer. KepreseatatiotiR had
been made to the depirtniejit that violence
might be done to Chinese subjects when
the law went into effect, and the dispatches
were sent as a precautionary measure. I
do not believe there n any proipect or
trouble, but the dispatches were sent uuv-
1 ertheless to allay apprehension."

tionality of'the Geary Chinese exclusion
act are being prosecuted by tho Chinese
Six Companies of San Francisco. Tho
concurrence of the federal authorities to
to expedite the hearing was secured by tho
Chinese legation through the departments
of state and justice.
The Chinese residents ot the United
States, to a very largo extent, are sub
servient to the six Companies, and follow
the advice given by its oflicials m all mat
ters. They advised tho Chinese not to
register as required by the act, so that
eeuifthe Chinese minister had antag
onized their position, which hu did not,
but, on the contrary, advised the subjects
of his goM.rnment to respect the law, the
probabilities are that his directions would
not hao been followed. Within the last
few days there has been a Ureakiug away
from the Six Companies to some extent,
and the applicants for registration at San
Francisco are more numerous than cau bu
accommodated hy the present forue. The
collector has asked the treasury depart
ment for additional help. As has been
stated, tnere will ba no arresta made for
violation of the Jaw until the supremo
court has passed upon the measure.
Should tho law be sustained, it is said
there can be nothing like a general en
forcement until congress makes an appro
propnation to meet the accompanying ex
pense. The question of the constitution
ality of the ChInco oxclusion law will

THE CHEROKEE STRIP.
WASniXCTO.v, .Mny 4. Information re
ceived here by private parties from the vi
cinity of the Cherokee strip is to the efTeci
that vast herds of cattle are grazing on
those land in violation of the instructioiw
of Secretary Xoble, which nave not been
countermanded, ordering all cattle from
the lands in anticipation of the early open
ing of the outlet to settlement. These
cattle are said to enter the strip by way of
the Ponca reservation, a small quare of :
few huudred acres between the strip nnd
theOige reervatioo. intersected by the
Atchison, Topek.i and Smta Fo rallroid.
Inquiry elicits the information thit tho
Ponca reservation was leased for grazing
purposes April 1 to a man named Miller of
Winfield. Knn , and another named Will
iams of Pans, Tex.
It seems that as soon as the lea. for tho
Ponca reservation wan made, tho cattle
men who for j ears grazed their herds In
the Cherokee strip until ordered out by
L'ntted States troops, began to fill un the
small reservation with thousands ot hail
of cattle, fir in excess of tho feeding
capicltv of tho lar.d. It is reported ttiut
the P mta Fe ro id is even now constantly
hauling cuttle into the reservation. Tho
natural consequence is that the cvttle are.
straying into tho strip, and that the suno
old condition prevail which Secre
tary Xoble tmd so much trouble to put an
Secretary Xoble's motive in keeping out
the cattle was to destroy tho iutereit of
powerful cattle corporations in keeping
the strip closed to settlement. Under tho
now prevailing circumstances these Inter
ests are believed to be again at work to
prevent the opening ot the lands until
fall, in order to keep their cattlo on grin
till they are fat enough for market. It is
said that they aro exerting pressure,
directly and indirectly, on the adminis
tration through a firm of experienced at
torneys here. Bv way of confirmation, lc
is stated that complications haTe becu
caused in regard to the manner of dispos
ing of the lands to settlers, which, if over
ruled by tho attorney general, ns ts probi
hie, will determine the administration ho
wait further action by congress. Tim
would postpone tho opening probably
uutil next spring.
lhc Cherokee representatives claim that
under the contract drawn up by the Ust
administration they would be prevented
from Healing their bonds for tha
sale of tha Cherokee strip Accord
ingly tho coutract will bu so
amended ns to facilitate the bond sale.
This U said to account for tho contract
Leing referred back to the as U taut attor
ney general. It l. believed that the con
tract will be completed within n week,
