New York. Aug. 16 A Herald special
from Fort Hall, via Green Iliver, Wo ,
ays. A very bltterfeellng against Wyoming
-settlers exists among the Bannocks and
Shoshones on this agency , and, although the
Indians have relumed from Jackson's Hole
on the orders of the.ngent, radical steps
must be speedily taken to punish the
Jackson Hole men who have killed and
wounded Indians or serious trouble will
yet be experienced with them.
A council of Shoshonc3 and Bannocks was
held on Monday nt the agency, TOO bucks,
nearly all oii the reservation, being present.
The council was attended by"Agent Tetter
and Clerk McBctn "Den" Sonowin, an
Indian who escaped from the pocse of
Jackson's Hole deputies when the escap
ing Indians were shot, on July 13, told
In an lnipre-ilve m-inucr the story of the
arrest of the party.
When lie told of their break for liberty,
and bow the Jackson's Hole people shot at
thero, killing one of their old men, who was
nearly blind, and a papoose, nnd wounding
their boys, the Indians, who bail listened
stoically, grew intensely excited and an
gered, and son'e of them shouted, "We will
go back to Jackson's Hole."
Agent Teeter then spoke. He ndv Ised the
Indians not to go to Jackson's Hole again,
and assured them the government would
Investigate and punish the murderers of
their people. He read and explained to
them a telegram he bad received from the
Indian Commissioner which stated that
the Interior Department hail requested the
Dcpatrroent of Justice to makoauluvestiga
tion of tho killing of the Indians and prose
cute the offender.
Taganec, an old chief, who was one of
the signer, of the treaty iof 1S68, said the
treaty which he, Washakie, Focatello,
and other Indians signed with Gen Sher
man, said it bad men among the whites

punish them and pay the Indians what they
He asked Teeter to say what was going
to be done to the bad men who bad
killed settlers in Jackson's Hole, and
what was to be done for Indians if not
permitted to hunt.
Other speakers blamed the agent be
cause nothing is being done to punish

Indian Bureau at Washington can reach
him, be greeted with an unpleasant sur

headquarters, for giving out official com

the Indian Bureau.
A few days ago he gave out his report
on the recent troubles with the Bannocks
and the whites before it reached the officials
at Washington, and he has slice made
public an official dispatch that the bureau
was especially anxious to keep secret fox a
time. This is why he may receive an un
pleasant communication in a lew days.
The dispatch In question was about a
ditch, which Agent Teter wants to tet his
Indians to work upon. It is an extension of

a largo extent worthless for agriculture
without water, and It Is almost Impossible

complaints were made by other canal com

Reform Is Also Proposed.
It is a settled fact that an effort will be
made through the Republican national com
mltfe and Congress for a change in the
present form of government for the Dis
trict. Several suggestions will be presented.
One for suffrage with an educational quali
fication; another retaining the present
form, with an increase from three to five
or eight Commissioners; and also one urg
Irg the privilege of a Representative In
Tho necessity for an increase In the num
ber of Commissioners, It is charged, devel
ojied Itself last week, when there was for
several days only one of tbe rulers In tbe
city, which, of course, prevented the proper
transaction of business. It Is' true, one
of tho number bad gone to investigate tbe
garbage destruction system in other cities,
but the fact is apparent that the board of
Commissioners was left without a suffi
cient number of Its members to fulfill the
requirements imposed upon them.
An Important matter that will receive at
tention Is the manner In which delegates
to the local convention to select delegates
to tbe national convention have been chosen.
A number of gentlemen met last night for
the purpose of starting at once to secure the
co-operation of all good citizens of Republi
can procllvltVs and have them pledge
themselves that they will attend tbe Dis
trict meetings, and aid In pushing aside
tbe mob element. Tbe question of color
will not enter Into the endeavor to purify
politics, but the better class ot colored citi
zens will be Invited to become active par
ticipants. TLtse gentlemen claim that all that It
necessary to make known the fart that
no set caifln the future control affairs, but
all who desire shall bo allowed to lend a
helping hand. The effort will be made
to do away with holding meetings In
rooms lighted by candles and coal oil, or
mass-meetlocs in out of the way places.
This system Is the one at which their will
be heavy firing, and in Its place primaries
will be held, begin nlng at 2 or 3 o'clock and
run three hours.
NEW SYSTEM OF PRIMARIES.
This system will give all the residents
ot a district tbe opportunity of voting
for their candidate for delegate.
It Is claimed that no good citizen will
neglect bis duty to vote, and if he does he
will be to blame if unsuitable men are se
lected as .delegates.
The clubs lu the various districts will be
reorganized, and new men selected as offi
cers To successfully effect this change
seems like a great undertaking, but the
only way, it is claimed, to ascertain what
can be done is to try, and the success of
the effort depends on how well those de
siring reform show their interest In
some ot tbe districts discord is so great
that two district clubs exist, and In such
cases the attempt will be made to unite
them and produce harmony, and mix with
the old some new material. At any rate,
tvtrial is to be made and purification is

"There is a strong feeling in all these

and they all look to the United States to do
all it can, honestly, to help the Cubans.
The feeling of the people of all these coun

friendly than to any foreign power, es

great desire that ttus Government shall

time was occupied in discussions of rather,
an unfriendly character.
A resolution was offered to expel B. A.

The resolution provoked severe remarks,

portion of the meeting were expunged from

to fill bis office.

one, will result beneficially, and further

Speare admitted the terms of the con
tract were such as stated by Hall, but said
that when tbe money was paid be did not
represent tbe bouse to be so near completion,
