Congressman Springer Gives Some Detail
of WUatHls Bill Proposes The Resolu
tions Adopted A Committee to Go
"Wicdita Kan., Nov. 2L The early
xnorniug trains yesterday brought hun
dreds more of delegates to the Inter-State
Oklahoma convention. The delegates and
visitors met at the Board of Trade head
quarters. About ten o'clock Hon. "William
Springer, of Illinois; Colonel Mansur, of
Missouri; General Weaver, of Iowa, ar
rived and wore given an ovation. Shortly
before eleven o'clock a procession was
formed headed by a band and marched to
the Crawford Opera House. The meeting
was called to order by George L. Rouse,
who introduced Judge J. S. Emery, of
Lawrenc?, as temporary chairman.
Mr. Walker, of Wellington, was made
temporary secretary. Committees wero
appointed in the usual manner of twenty-one
members each. Judge E. B. Jew
ett, of Wichita, chairman of the commit
tee on permanent organization; resolu
tions and memorial, Sidney Clark, of
Lawrence, chairman; selection of dele
gates to Washington, Major J. P. Allen,
of Wichita; finance, M. W. Levy, Wichita,
After assignments of places for commit
tees to meet the convention adjourned un
til two p. m. That hour found most of the
delegates not occupied on committee in
place, while there were several hundred
spectators, representing many towns in
this and adjoining States. In the absence
of committee reports there were enthusi
astic calls for "Weaver 1" "Springer 1"
"Charlie Mansur!" and others. The dis
tinguished gentlemen had not arrived and
the chair appointed George H. Block
welder and J. O. Davidson to escort them
from the hotel aud in the meantime George
M. Clement, of Wichita, spoke on the
question of the day.
The arrival of the champions of the Okla
homa bill was grouted with prolonged and
enthusiastic cheers. Mr. Springer was in
S.oiluced in an eulogistic manner by the
chairman, after which he spoke as fol
lows: "The object of the convention, if I
tin correctly informo 1, is to givo expres
sion to the sentiments of tho people
uf the Southwest in reference to the
opening to settlement of that portion
of the Indian Territory west of the lands
occupied by tho Gvo civilized tribes. If
wo include what is known as Groor County
the area is nearly 25,000.000 acres about
tho size of the State of Ohio. More than
half of this area is now occupied by In
dian tribes under various treaty stipula
tions and departmental orders. That part
of the proposed Territory, however, which
is known as tho Cherokee outlet Okla
homa proper and the Public Land Strip,
embracing 11,000,000 acres, is not acquired
by Indians and only a small portion of it
has ever been occupied by Indian tribes.
These lands ought to have been opened to
actual settlers under the provisions of the
"Two cnuses havo operated to delay the
opening of these lands to settlement. The
Grst is the complication growing out of In
dian titles, and the second comes from
cattle syndicates, who under pretended
Indian leases are using large areas of
these lands for grazing purposes. The
bill now pending in Congress proposes an
equitable adjustment of the Indian claims.
There will be no difficulty in coming to an
agreement with the Creeks and Seminoles
in regard to what is known as Oklahoma
proper. The Indian claims on these lands
are of a very shadowy and unsubstan
tial character. The Government has
a title already to them in fee
simple and has paid the price
which was agreed upon at the time of
purchase. But tho Government having
declared its purpose to settle friendly In
dians upon these lands, it is of tho utmost
importance that the bill for the organiza
tion of tho Territory of Oklahoma shall bo
passed at the ensuing session of Congress.
The longer the opening of the lands is de
layed tho greater will be the complications
and embarrassments which will confront
us. Tho tide of civilization has already
been stayed too long upon the borders of
this Territory. The people are impatient
to enter upon and possess the promised
"The settlement of these lands is a
question of timo and that time can not
be long delayed. The opposition to such
settlement is confined to a great cattlo
sj'ndicato having a lenso of 0,000,000 acres.
The cattlo syndicate insist upon using
theso lnnds for cattle pastures, the people
insist upon having them for homes. Pub
lic sentiment will no longer tolerate the
arrogance of any portion of our citizens
who demand a large part of the public
domain for their private gain and to
the exclusion of actual settlers. Civil
ization will not be stopped at the command
of individual greed. Private interests
must give way to the public treat. If
these cattle companies were more patriotic
and less selfish than they are they would
withdraw their opposition to this measure
and unite with tho other cit'zens of the
United States in demanding the immedi
ate opening of this Territory to settlement,
but whether they surrender or continue
their opposition to the advance of civiliza
tion and progress the time of their occu
pancy is short and tho cattle kings must
"Tho timo approaches and now is near
when theso lands must bo opened to the
people. There is an irrepressible conflict
between barbarism and civilization. The
result of that conflict is not a. matter of
doubt. No portion ot this continent can
be held in barbarism to the exclusion of
civilized men. In the organization of the
Territory the hopes and aspirations of our
fathers will be realized. Every portion of
our great domain will have been brought
within the protection of the Constitution
and the laws. In Oklahoma will be
realized in its fullest fruition the prophesy
oi isnian uitereu nearly ii,vw years
ago: 'The wilderness aud the solitary
places shall be glad and the desert shall
rejoice and blossom as the rose.'"
At the close of his remarks the commit
tee on permanent organization reported
S. Dolliuan, of Topeka. chairman; H. L.
Pearce, of Wichita, secretary; vice-presidents,
Judge Cochran, Nebraska; G. M.
Pock, Topeka; Joseph Harris, Wichita; C.
H. Koeler, Wellington; Dr. A. S. Clance,
Panhandle? John Dale, No-Man's-Land;
A. B. Johnson, Arkansas City; A. Corning,
The report was adopted and the resolu
tions reported as follows:
Whekeas, This convention believes that by
the openlBR of the Oklahoma Territory the
right? or the Indian tribes of the Territory will
In no wise be impaired, while the condition of
sucn tribes wul be greatly Improved; and.
Whereas. We believe it an invariable rule
that such vacant territory as that in question
wfll be settled without lawful authority If not
legally organized; and.
Whereas, We beilevo that the welfare of
the country In general and of the surrounding
States In particular requires the speedy trans
formation of the unsettled area of the Indian
Territory into a settled and civilized common
Whereas, The proposed legislation Is de
sianded because of the alarming prevalence of
crime In the Indian Territory in the absence of
dm government; therefore be It
Jtetolctd, That we urge most Imperatively on
Congress the duty of passing at oncesubstan
tially the pending bill to organize the Territory
of Oklahoma, now well advanced In the House
Xuolced, Tim we call on the President of the
United States to exercise all the authority la
aim vested to render efficacious the laws now
existing or to be enacted, looking to the estab
lishment or the proposed new Territory.
GenarnI Weaver was loudly called for
t nnA T-wivifl with wild nnthnsiasm. Sss
said it gavo him great pleasure to be pres
ent at the meeting. He had long since
decided that white men bad rights as well
as black or red men. It had been his ex
perience that converts come to the move
ment from becoming acquainted with the
facts involved in the Springer bill, which
is the result of careful work in the In
terest of doing justice to all and
injury to none. The decision of
Attorney-General Garland that In
dians have no power to lease
lands to cattlemen had greatly weakened
the stronghold of opposition. This should
impart new courage to the friends and
supporters of the movement. He gave a
vivid description of the possibilities of
Oklahoma and insisted that the interests
of Indians and whites demand the passage
of the bill. The movement could be suc
cessful bv creating a public opinion which
comes with agitation and discussion.
It was not a political position. "Thank
God, one place we can meet on a
level and part on the scuare."
Cheers for many minutes. To a ques
tion asked if Indians would dispose of
their lands according to provisions of the
bill he said that when cattle men were
allowed to lease the Cherokee Strip they
paid the Indians $200,000 and the interest
on the money paid them for that land
according to the bill would be $300,000. If
they were allowed to lease it would be
business for them to accept the provisions
of tho bill, but as they are not of late it
was reasonable that they would, and he
had authentic word from them that they
would accept. This was true of the other
tribe3 concerned. The General was often
interrupted with enthusiastic cheers.
He was followed by Colonel Mansur, who
gave statistics concerning Oklahoma and
the Territory concerned in the Springer
bilL Ho referred to a sort of sentimental
ity in some places in the East and South
which was attended with opposition to
the bill, but that was fast ovaporating in
the light of facts. Concerning Oklahoma
being a home for criminals he said over
365 murders had been committed in that
country during the last year. He said
there could bo no doubt of the passage of
tho bill in question by the coming Con
gress. The following gentlemen were appointed
a committee to go to Washington and use
all fair means for the passage of the
Springer bill: Hon. Sidney Clark, Law
rence; Captain W. L. Couch, Douglas;
Colonel M. M. Murdock, Wichita; Colonel
W. S. Crocker, Caldwell. Auxiliary com
mittee: C. It. McLane, Newton; C. L. Sea
very, Arkansas City; George Legrango.No-Man's-Land;
J. E. Hallowell, Wellington;
Charles Robinson, Chickasaw Nation; C.P.
Walker, Colony; Judge E. J. Cochrane,
Nebraska; A. D. Holstean, Arkansas; J.
W. Springer, Chicago; R. Evans, Des
Moines; Dr. Morrison Munford, Kansas
City; T. B. Bullene, Kansas City; Judge
Crook, Wichita; W. K. Carlisle, Wichita;
A. B. Barnes, Greensburg; O. G. Chase,
No-Man's Land. The report was adopted
with cheers, and after a short speech by
Sidnoy Clark the convention adjourned
until eight o'clock.
At the evening session Colonel Roberts,
of the Chickasaw Nation, J. W. Springer,
clerk of the Committee on Territories;
Colonel Crocker, of Caldwell, Tom McNeal,
of Medicine Lodge, spoke to a crowded
house. A resolution of thanks to the Board
of Trade was parsed. The convention ad
journed to meet at the call of the chair
man and secretary.
THE NATIONAL GRANGE.
Colonel Joseph II. Brlgham, of Ohio,
Topeka, Kan., Nov. 21. The National
Grange held its election yesterday, and
much to the surprise(of the friends of Act
ing Master Draper, whoexpected he would
bo elected master, Colonel Joseph H. Brig
ham, of Ohio, was chosen to fill that posi
tion. Mr. Leonard Rhone, of Pennsyl
vania, was elected a member of the execu
tive committee. Routine matters occupied
the remainder of tho session. Colonel

term of the late Hon. Pat Darden, is a giant
in stature and a popular agriculturist. Ho

tion is a source of joy to every Ohioan in
BARRY'S SECOND CHAPTER.
The Powderly Administration Accused
Ixdiaxapolis, Ind., Nov. 20. "Spyism"
is the theme of T. B. Barry's second chap
ter in the serial story ho is publishing
about the actions of the Powderly- admin
istration of the affairs of the Knights ol
Labor. Ho goes ovor actions of various
delegates at Minneapolis and in this city
and accuses them ot spying upon tho
actions of all delegates suspected of
opposing Powderly. In this install
ment of his fctory, which was
given to the press late last night, he also
gives the names of members of tho order
whom, he says. Powderly and the board
discharged to make places for non-union
men who were their pets. Barry and his
friends are expressing great indigna
tion at the action of the general as
sembly and at the report of the griev
ance committee yesterday in the cases
of Gleason and Bloomer. They say these
cases are similar to that of Barry
and that the action was very inconsistent.
They are feeling sanguine of success in a
new order. Already telegrums of sympa
thy and expressing a desire to join him
have been received fronnnany parts of the
country by Barry. These come in several
instances from officers of local assemblies
of the Knight3 of Labor and Barry counts
on their support in his new organization.
FAIRCH1LD ON FINANCE.
The Secretary Busy on His Annual Finan
Washington, Nov. 20. Secretary Fair
child is busily engaged in the preparation
of his annual report, which is usually
transmitted to Congress on the first Jay
ot every new session. The Secretary pro
poses to make bis last report a valuable
contribution to financial history, and he
will give a comprehensive review of our
financial system as conducted under
the present Administration. In order
that he may not be disturbed in this im
portant work he has temporarily aban
doned the Treasury Department for tha
seclusion of his library at home. He will
devote considerable attention to the sur
plus problem, and will show that at tha
present rate of increase it may reach tha
neighborhood of something like $104,000,
000 by the end of the present fiscal year.
Theso figures are based on the fact that as
long as money remains in the treasury it
is reckoned as a part of the surplus, not
withstanding provision may have been
previously made for its expenditure.

The Combine Captures a Cattlo Conves
Hon Why State Inspection Is Opposed.
St. Louis. Nov. 22 It is now openly as
serted that the dressed beef men have car
ried the day and that if there is a joint
convention of the range men and butchers
it will amount to nothing more than the
reading of papers and not the discussion
of how to circumvent the dressed beef
men. The dressed beef representatives
sent a circular to each association asking
that the convention be called to order and
that they Ee admitted to participate in its
deliberations. They invited full and
free discussion of tha live-stock ques
tion, with the object In view of asking
Congress to provide for a rigid investiga
tion of all live stock on the hoof at all of
the large slaughtering points in the coun
try, which would include Chicago, Kansas
City, St. Louis, Omaha and New York.
The convention was postponed yesterday
owing to the discovery made by the range
men and butchers that the dressed beef
representatives had captured it and could
do about as tSey pleased with it The
leaders therefore took time to endeavor to
The conference is a remarkable one for
it is the first where the dressed beef inter
ests have entered into opposition and
shown their hand. They have the advan
tage on the question of being admitted to
the convention for the call was for repre
sentative men in all branches of the cattle
industry. It is claimed the beef trust
have enough men here to outvote the op
position on any point. Tho commission
men are with the diessed beef interests.
Tho formor oppose State inspection be
cause it will convince European Govern
ments that American cattle are diseased
while they claim there never were more
healthy cattle and thus shut off exporta
tion, which now amounts to but 000,000
head annually, while it should bo at least
1,500,000. The dressed beef men are op
posed to it because the necessity of in
spection on tho hoof would imperil the
$30,000,000 invested in the different
branches of their industry. Both are in
favor of National inspection because it
would ba a guarantee of good health
which would be accepted at home and
VERDICT OF GUILTY.
Two Kansas 3Ipii Convicted of Murder In
the Indian Territory.
Fort Smith, Ark., Nov. 21. The most
interesting anil sensational murder case
that has been in tho Federal court for
y ears terminated last night in a verdict
of guilty as to "Henry W. Miller and Will
iam Woods, two prominent citizens of
Doniphan County, Kan. On tho 25th of
last November Woods left home with an
old schoolmate and friend named Johnny
Hantz for a long hunt in the Indian Terri
tory. They subsequently picked up a
companion in a stranger named Miller,
who went with them. They were gone
three months and were seen in various
parts of the Choctaw and Cherokee Nations.
When Miller and Woods returned home
Hantz was missing and a searching party
afterwards found his body in Verdigris
river, face down, with a bullet hole in the
back of his head. His watch was found in
Miller's pocket. The evidence was purely
of a circumstantial nature, and the re
covery of the body was due mainly to the
devotion of a pointer dog belonging to the
murdered man. The dog refused to leave
the place of its master's murder, and
bayed continually until too weak to move,
until the body was found. Both Woods
and Miller are respectablo citizens of Kan
sas, and several prominent attorneys from
that State wero employed in their defense.
The Bold Train Koliher Also Wanted For
Fort Worth, Tex., Nov. 22. The no
torious Captain E. F. Bunch, the man who
robbed the Queen and Crescent near New
Orleans, is wanted badly in Fort Worth
by a number of men who hold worthless
notes made by Bunch, aggregating so far
over $4,000. The first intimation of this
was secured from a suit filed in
the district court by J. C. Har
rison, a banker, against W. P. Callo
way, J. P. Hayes, A. S. Gates and E. F.
Bunch, on a vendors' lien note for $$00.
The note purported to have been made by
A. S. Gates, payable to Bunch on land pur
chased. Bunch sold the note to Calloway
and Harper and they discounted it to
Harrison. It was not paid when due, so
Harrison sued. Investigation by Calloway
and Harper shows that Gates bought no
land and made no note. He is supposed
to live in Denton County. The note is a
forgery. Colonel O. Brewster, a capital
ist, holds a similar note for $7."0, bought
from Bunch. Two other notes, one for
SH500 and the other for ii$o, are held by J.
C. Liming. All are of the same charac
ter It is said that another capitalist
holds seven notes of the same kind and all
are forgeries. Most of the forgeries were
committed within four months past.
The Farnell Commission Judges Fut a
Heavy Fine on Kdwaril Harrington.
London. Nov. 21. In the Parnell Com
mission this morning Mr. Reid, attorney
for Mr. Harrington, said that Mr. Har
rington did not choose to adopt the course
lie had advised in the matter of the article
abusing the Commission, which had ap
peared in Harrington' paper, the Kerry
Sentinel, therefore he (Reid) was not in
a position to say anv thing.
Presiding Judge Hcnnen asked Mr. Har
rington if he had any thing to sav.
Mr. Hnrrington replied that he had no
statement to make, except that ho would
accept the responsibility for what had ap
peared in his paper.
The Judges retired. In ten minutes the
Judges reappeared and Judge Hannen
said he regretted that Mr. Harrington had
refused to adopt Mr. Reid's advice. It
would be wasting words to indicate how
serious was the contempt of court of which
his paper had been guilty. It was neces
sary that tho authority of the court should
be maintained and therefore such things
must be stopped. He then fined Mr. Har

Tobler, two colored men twenty-three and
twenty-one years old respectively, were
hanged yesterday morning at the county
jail for the murder of James Cass and

Indian Territory. When asked upon the
scaffold if they had any thing to say each
responded quickly "No," and tha drop fell

The crime was committed on August 16,
1885, about one mile north of the Sac and
Fox agency in tho Indian Territory. Tha
victims, John Cas3 and Robert Goody
kuntz, two cattlemen livingat Vinita, sev
eral miles northeast in the Territory, in
the early part of that month left for Texas
after cattle, traveling in a twr horse
wagon. On the night of the 16th they
reached the scene of tho murder and went
into camp under a largo tree. Having fed
antl staked their horses and taken
supper they lay down under the tree by
the side of the wagon for the night.
Shortly before midnight an Indian who
happened to be in bearing distance heard
four shots fired in the vicinity of the scene
of the murder. Next morning some parties
from the agency happened along and
found two bodies. Word was sent to the
agencyand parties were soon at the scene
who recognized the two men and readily
understood that they had been murdered.
The unfortunate men late in tho evening
before had been at the agency and called
on some acquaintances.
Suspicion immediately centered upon
tho Tobler boys, as they were soon ob
served to be absent and it was also called
to mind that they were of the tough char
acters in the Territory and also had been
observed paying special attention to the

Knights of Labor Adopt a Motion to Inves
tigate the General Olllcrrs.
Indianapolis, Ind., Nov. 21. An pnread
communication from Philadelphia to the
general assembly of the Knights of Labor,
regarding Barry's charge that district as
sembly 74, of East Saginaw, had been dis
solved to defeat Barry, caused the intro
duction and adoption uf a motion for tho
appointment of a committee to investi
gate the methods of tho general officers.
This action was taken after a good .deal of
debate and then a still more troublesome
question arose as to who should appoint
the committee. Powderly, being .one of
those who would be investigated, refused
the responsibility. It was suggested that
he appoint ono, that another be appointed
by W. T. Lewis, of the miners' assembly,
who is regarded as Powderly's chief op
ponent, and that the third member be se
lected by those two, but the suggestion
was not adopted. The remark that Barry
appoint the committee caused some laugh
ter, but was not considered further.

Whltechapel Again Alarmed.
London, Nov. 21. Great excitement
was occasioned this morning when it was
reported that another woman had beon
murdered and mutilated in Whitechapel.
The police immediately formed a cordon
around the premises. An enormous crowd

was said to have been committed, where it
was learned that another murder had
been attempted upon a low woman by a
man who had accompanied her to her
lodging, but that in this instance his work
had been frustrated. The police, after in
vestigating, stated that they did not think
the attempt was made by the party known

Two Mode! Widows.
Nearly every pleasant afternoon a
little procession may be seen starting
from Mrs. Sheridan's home in Rhode
Island avenue. It is tho widow of the
great soldier and her four little chil
dren, all dressed in black, going' out
for a walk. Mrs. Sheridan's mourn
ing, like every thing else about her,
is simple and unostentatious. Sbo has
not barred her house up gloomily or
kept ber children indoors, or done any
thing that is conspicuous or irrational.
She has been a model of dignity and
propriety. A keen observer here, who
has seen a great many widows of emi
nent men, said the other day: "There
are two widows in this country who
perfectly understand tho proprieties
of their situations. One is Mrs.
Conkling; the other is Mrs. Sheridan.
Neither one of them has uttered a
word in print, expressed an opinion
regarding their dead husbands' friends
or enemies, or departed in any way
from the strictest seclusion. It is a
pity the widows of all public men don't
copy them."' Washington Letter.
Cure of Pneumonia.
HESS ROAD. XIAGA11A Co., N. Y.,
March 2-1, 1SS0. f
About a year ago I was taken with a
severe pain in both lungs. I was first at
tacked with a violent chill, then a dreadful
pain and then a cough accompanied by con
siderable fever. It looked very much like
a bad attack of pneumonia. A friend of
mine procured five Allcock's Plasteus.
Ono he put under each arm, one under each
shoulder blade, and one on my chest close
around my throat. In a few hours the
cough ceased, the pain gradually abated
and I broke out in a profuse perspiration.
I fell into a profound sleep, and tho next
day was almost well. I wore tho Plasters
eight days afterwards, and have never had
any trouble since.

It is a mistaken notion that woman's
nature is to bo extravagant. Doesn't a
corset indicate a dosire for a small waste?
Is excusable, because involuntary in the
rheumatic. One severe twinge is sufficient
to make anv one twist the countenance out
of shape. Persons troubled with incipient
rheumatism might save themselves years
of pain if they would only use Hostetter's
Stomach Bitters at the start. Signally effi
cacious is it, too, for neuralgia, fever and
ague, dyspepsia, debility, inactivity of the
kidneys and biliousness.
