THE 1IDIU TRADERSMPS
SENATOR VEST BEFORE THE
His Statement With Regard to the
Jackson Matter How He Be
came InTolved In It.
Washington, July 26. Senator Vest
made a s'atement before the Piatt
epacial commit es ot the Senate thiB
morniDg with regard to his connection
with tbe Indian tradoiship ma'ters.
Hiaaidhe did not personally know
either of the traders at Anardarko
(Cleveland and Reynolds) when he
first interested himself in tfie subject,
bat his action wis taken in Conse
quence of reprcsntat onsmadeto him
by friends, men of standing and repute
in St. Louis, that the new men who
Mr. Atkins appointing knew noth
ing of the bosiness, and tne effect of
appointing Tennesseeans and Miftfis
eipp'acs exclusively would be to divert
the trade from St. Louis, where it bad
long centered, to Memphis, lie wrote
to Commifsioncr Atkins and after
wards called on him, making known
tte fact that S. M. Jackson, whom the
Commissioner had licensed, was cell
ing proposes for a partnership with
theold tradeis which, though not ex
pressed in so many words, indicated a
purpose to trade off his license for
a share in the p-ofit". Mr. Atkins
wis indignant and promised to write
Jackfon that be matt establish him
self in trade at once or his license
would be revoked. In regard to the
relicenaing of Cleveland or Rsynolds,
Atkins eaid he did not wish to do
either, stating as a reason with regard
to Cleveland tbat he was said to have
an interest in a htrd of cattle on the
reservation T Mr. Atkins eaid he did
not want to revoke Jackson's license
abruptly or act hastily in the matter
on account of the condition of things
in Tenneacee. If he were to revoke
Jackson's licem e at once, it would be
interpreted Dy senator jacason bb evi
dence of partiality to Senator Harris.
Mr. Atkinp, however, promised to li
cense Cleveland or Reynolds in com
pany with Jackson and to see that
J act son put up hie share of the capi
tal. Mr.. Vest paw Senator Jackson
and in a friendly nay told him that
"like the balance of us" he had some
lame kin, that his brother, 8. M. Jack
eon, wou'd get him (Senator Jackson)
into trouble if he continued to write
lettera like those to Cleveland, propos
ing partnership. The first thing be
knew there would be a sommitteeon in
vestigation and the Republicans would
be making trcub'e about it. Senator
Jackson thanked Senator Vest, but
t aid the matter wa now arranged and
said his bruther wi s now prepare! to
go into business. Mr. Vest wasa'so
informed tbat 8. M. Jackson and his
father-in-law, of St. Louis, had been
about among the mei chants of St.
Louis exhibiting his license and trying
on the strength of it to secure credit,
but witbont snccesa After bis inter
view with the Commissioner, Mr.
Vest wrote to bis friends in Si. Louis
stating that Mr. Atkins had promised
to relicense Reynolds or Cleveland in
company with Jackson and Baking
them to make fe election between
tLotwo. Afier 'ii'ving written tbat
letter he was Informed bra letter horn
the Commissioner tbat ne could not
carry ont his promise. Mr. Vest saw
the Comnciwioner again and receiv d
the same information verbally. He
was indignant at having been put in
t the position of premising to secure a le
Mccnfeand being re' use J, and had writ
ten hi 9 second letter(already published)
to Msj. Bannerman under thuse cir
cumstances. He had known Mr. At
kins many years and was on terms of
personal friendship with bim. Mr.
Atkins was like himself, an impetuous
man, but he was thoroughly hones',
and any statement that he (Senator
Vest) had ever ea'd anything indict
ing a contrary belief was false. Mr.
Vest, ia the course cf bisremarks, pro
duced and rfad some letters from
Cleveland, making reference to At
kins's impecunious fiienda, and charg
ing tbat the plan of the new tradeis
was to bold off until the Commissioner
should order the old one soft the reser
vation permiptorily, whan the new
men hep d to secure the stock aad
property for a song.

Blair, from the Cimmitt on Educa

report from the majority of

propos'ng that an amendment to the

The report which accompanied the
prnpo itirn amen 'ment says the com
mit ee does rot diem ft necessary to
di.cuss the evils of the use of alcohol,
but th. people have a right to decide
what treasures shall be taken for the

'Why," it a?kp, "should they be
