ing an Investigation br tto Interior Depart
ment of tho cntlro premises. They Bug
it to tho administration two methods of
lolutlot) of this affair. First, "at a com
ulsslon bo appointed to ncktitUto with
Iho Indian tribes under the provis
ion of tho recent act of Congress, the
settlers to have a representative on the com
mission. Second, that tho Attorney Gen
eral bo instructed to bike sUpx to have a

Circuit Court of the United States lu such
a manner as may finally drcldnnll legal K
sucs and questions concerning the Okla
homa lands, lloth of these plans were pre
filled to the Secretary ntthe Interior and
Attorney General, and Messrs. Clark and
Woiver hone that one or Ihn other may be
adopted. In (he meantime they have telo
gmpliril Captain Couoh to act with great
prudence In vlnw of tho complications
which xurrotind tho situation. While It Is
possible that the action of tho Administra
tion may, on a careful review ot all facts
antl circumstances, be somewhat modified,
llietn is pxcrlienl reason to De.levo that

lit Enzland, aud was the parent of s wil
ful bnt comely lass named May, who, de
spite her father's protest, became engaged
to one John Lawrence, a man of good
family, but ot no considerable wealth.
Falllug to conciliate tbe lady's father, the
young people came to America and were
married at Springfield, Mass. During
much of the latter colonial period com

ran across the record of the manrlsge of
John Lawrence und Mary Townley. Being

brought him to Gowanda, where he In
formed Mr. Brown that his wife, who was
a daughter ut tbe late Judge Wilder, ot
Spruifl -Id, was a dltect descendant of
Maty ljvvrenc.', and therefore ouc, of the

Mr Brown executed bonds on tbe es

to procure an act directing the transfer
