Special to The Tribuno.
W-VSfilNGTON, D. C.-.Iay G.-.MaJ.
James McLaughlin of the Indian
bureau is preparing his re
port on the treaty recently
Jiegotialod 'by him between the
United. States and .650 Shoshone"
and Arapahoe Indians occupying the
Wind River reservation In Wyoming,
whereby 1,4S'J.0U0 acres will be thrown
open to settlement. The Indians agToe
to rctiro from one million and a half
.acres and take up their domiciles upon
an area covering about SOO.000 acres.
Those: who may, settle in the Wind
River reservation are to pay at the fol
lowing rales, and make final payment
within eight years: $1.50 per acre for
.all lands taken within first two years;
$1.25 par acre after three years and all
remaining unsold after three years to
be disposed of by the Socreiarj- of' the
Interior at 51 per acre, and, should any
lands remain after expiration of eight
, years, they shall be placed on sale for
any amount they can bring.
The proceeds from iho sale of the
lands will be held by the United Statew
for the purpose of creating a fund out
of which $50 per capita Is to be paid to
each Indian of a tribe or tribes. This
obligation having- been paid, subsequent
moneys received from th sale will be
held by the Government for the follow
ing purposes- Irrigating lands retained
by Indians, purchase of stock and $50.
000 for school purposes. Including $50
per capita, payment of Irrigation fund, ,
purchasing stock, and money for school
purposes, it is estimated, will call for
about J33S.O00. It Is expected that a
considerably larger sum than thl. will
be realized from the sale of the lands
to be opened to settlement and the sur
plus is to be deposited In the United
States treasury to create a "general
welfare fund." which will be disbursed
by the Secretary of the Interior for the
benefit of the Indians at his discretion.

COST OF WAR
Million a Pay Spent

Facts - and Eiguros Presented Ipy
Bussia Concerning- Details and
Circumstances of Loan.
PARIS, -May 6. An authoritative
statement was given to the
Associated Press' today from
the - highest governmental source
concerning the details and clrcumr
stances of the :new Itueaian loan, as
"The situation has . been much
changed since your Interview with M.
MIeczIslas de Routkowsky, the Russian
financial agent in London April p3.
The conditions today on which the loan
Js based are as follows:
"The cost of the war for the first five
months, up to June 1, Including $L'2,500,
C00 for railroad equipment, is $126,000,000.
"After June 1 the monthly cost of the
war will be $3,500,000 for the navy and .
$15,000,000 for the army at the front,
mailing inc total war expense aooui
$245,000,000 for the year closing Jan
uary 1 next.
"The first part of the war was more
expensive than.the latter, owing to the
cost of mobilisation and the general
expenses Incident to setting the ma
chinery of war In motion.
"Against these extraordinary ex
penses we may have .certain economics,
namely, $30,000,000 on the ordinary bud
get, $27,600,000 on the extraordinary
budgetand ?J.500,000 on previous bud
gets, making tire total economies $G7,
000,000. "When the war began the Russian
Government had between. $150,000,000
and $200,000,000 to Its credit in the Bank
of Russia and with foreign bankers.
According to the monetarj law of 18'J7,
which made gold the standard for Rus
sia, there was a stock of gold amount
ing to $475,000,000 nnd a note issue of
$350,000,000. Therefore Russia still could
have placed In circulation $200,000,000 to
$250,000,000 In notes without impairing
In the slightest the gold law of lf07.
However, by so doing the monetary sit
uation after the war might have been
less natlsfactory than at present.
"Accordingly, for the purpose of pro
tecting the Internal monetary situation,
the Russian Government has lent a fa
vorable ear to the proposals made by
French bankers and has opened nego
tiations at St. Petersburg for an Issue
of treasury bonds, running five years,
at 5 per cent These are going to be of
fered to customers of the big French
financial houses at near par. By sc do
ing the Russian Government reserves
the right after five years to make use
of Its internal credit to convert or con
solidate these five-year bonds Into a
funded debt bearing a lower rate of Interest."

Senator Says Roosovelt's Election,
Will Be Overwhelming, and That
the Democracy Is at Sea.
SENATOR REED SMOOT spent
Friday In .this; city on his way
home from Washington to Provo.
He received an earnest welcome
bnck.to Utah .from his friends in Salt
Lake and expressed himself as pleased
that Congress had adjourned as early
as It did.
The Senator Is in perfect health and
his friends say he has not permitted the
annoyances of the Senatorial' inquiry to
affect him. In fact, they say he has in
creased in weight, is as affable as ever,
nnd he- has been looking after the In
terests of his State as zealously as If
there were no opposition to him at
' Forest Reservations.
Senator Smoot Is much pleased at the
Droeress ltindft In tlif (nffrot nf fnroRf
reservations and he says the next two
years will mark many valuable changes
in the watershed conditions of several
Utah towns and settlements. More than
3,000,000 acres of land will soon be
thrown open to entry under the provi
sions of the general land laws, and the
citizens, under proper restrictions, will
be permittedto graze these lands and
to utlllae some of the timber.
As a momber of the Commltteo on
Pensions Senator Smoot points out
that he has devoted much time to ob
tain for the vcteraps of the Black. Hawk
war the pensions due them. Utah has
been discriminated against, ho says, in
the matter of pensions, and. it has becn
an exceedingly difficult task to Rccure
such concessions from the committee as
were meritorious because of the indif
ference with which the records of tha
Black Hawk war were kept.
Everything possible will bo done, he
says, to have everything ready for thj
opening of the Uintah reservation by
March 1 next, and the necessary survey
work Is being pushed by a corps of sur
veyors as rapidly as It is possible.
The State will soon have a fish hatch
ers' for which $25,000 has been appro
priated, but no decision has been
reached as lo the point It will bo lo
cated. Senator Smoot Is so certain of the re
election of President Roosevelt that he
Is almost extravagant In his statements
of the probable vote the President will
receive. He says tho Democrats are In
as great a muddle as the newspapers
have been representing. There is no
possible hope, he says, of their getting
together In such numbers as to carry
any States they did not carry in 1000,
and the Senator says Utah will give
the President and his Administration a
handsome Indorsement. Ho believes
the Indications point to the nomination
of Senator Charles W. Fairbanks of In
diana for Vice-President.
