A TALK WITHJHE INDIANS.
Cliejcnno and Arnpahno Delegation Confer
With tho ColumUMonc r nf Indian
Washington, March 21. (Special.) The
commissioner of Indian affairs spoilt three
hours yesterday hearing a delegation from
tho Chcyennes and Arnpahoos. They an
nounced that settlers mistreated them and
that they were imposed upon and cheated
by the whites. They cited a few Instances
where they claimed that Indians' had been
murdered by whites and had been acquit
ted In court by reason ol prejudice against
tho red men.
In regard to leasing their allotments,
they agreed that It should be done, under
tho supervision of tho department. It Is
understood that tills nmtter Is dually set
tled upon and It Is thought tho department
will aim to lease tho lands for crops this
In regard to taking money out of their
funds, to bo used for the erection of bouses
on their claims, the delegates hail little to
pay. On!y one expressed himself on this
matter. Chief White C'louil said he was
tigalnst the plan of expending their funds
In that way. He s.ild the Indians wanted
tho money left whero they would get their
regular Interest, and they were afraid that
it ii was xiiKen 0111 it wouw inn among
white men and they would get poor houses
at a big price.
The ollicl.il lavor the plan of Agent
Woodson, who wants to have JIOO.000 or
SWO.OOO expended In Improvements for the
Indians, which means tho erection of
houses for them.
There Is llulo doubt but the arrangement
will be carried out If It is possible to in
duce tho Indians to agree to it.

yesterday, six of lllgghis' supporters, who
hnd temporarily deserted his came, for I..
O, Hruilford, returned to their llfst choice,
and the ex-senator received seven votes nt
the close. To-day there were two ballots,
and Air. Hlgglns was only given one vote,
a new man, Ilcnjamln Fields, of Wilming
ton, iceelving seven of tho Itepubllcan
votes. Addlcks' lines remain unbroken,
his original supporters sticking to him.
Tho hail was crowded and the Injection of
new nnmes Into the light provided much
food for gossip nnd speculation.
Wilmington. Del.. .March SI. The action
of the Hlgglns supporters In ngnln leaving
him to-day and voting for lieiijamln I'ields,
is regarded as a confirmation of their pur
pose to do all In their power to elect a sen
ator, and to force the Addlcks and Massey
followers to yield.
In accordance with the plan of notion
they have started upon, tho Hlgglns peo
ple will probably vote for a new man each
day, They have n new candidate for to
morrow, but will not state who he is. This
disposition on the part of tho Hlgglns peo
ple will, It Is believed, subject the Massey
oud Addlcks supporters to tremendous
pressure to comtMn and unite on a senator.
Dr. liurton, a leading Itepubllcan, who Is
regarded as a prominent dark horse, was
In Dover to-day. Mr. Addlcks, who has
been absent some days, returned to the
sceno of the struggle this morning.
KICKAPOO SCHOOL LANDS.
(jovcrnor Itonfrow'n I'lan Approved by tho
Interior Department Some Curious
Things in Cnnnectb.il.
Washington, Mnrch SI. (Special.) Tho
recommendation of the governor of Okla
homa to set apart 30,000 acres of land In the
Klckapoo reservation, to reimburse the ter
ritory for school lands taken by Indian
allotments, was taken up at the Interior
yesterday and it was decided to approve
the recommendation of the governor. This,
with the allotments made to the Klckn
poos and the school lands regularly taken
from that reservation, will wipe out all of
tho good laud In the reservation and over
half of the total acreage. It reduces very
materially the Importance of opening that
reservation to settlement.
There aro Mine amusing things In con
nection with this reservation and the oper
ations of certain olllclals In the Interior
department. The allotments were complet
ed many mouths ago and approved. Im
mediately thereafter a copy of tho same ap
peared In Oklahoma In the hands of one of
the favorites running that end of the gov
ernment. There was a general rush to
llnd out if such and such a quarter was
covered by an nllotment. It has always
been the rule of the department to leave
open to the public allotment rolls, l'eoplc
wrote to the department to get Information
about whether or not a certain claim was
covered by an allotment. Hut It seem the
department held as a gold bond secret the
location of tho allotments, anil no one
could give out the Information but the man
down In Oklahoma who had been furnished
a copy of the allotments It .-oon became
known who hnd this copy, ami that Infor
mation about any particular claim could
be secured for cash In advance. It l al
leged the prices ran from i down to J5,
being reguluted by the location and value
of tho claim.
Now thnt the territorial school lands will
take nearly all of the best bind In the res
ervation, leaving but a few thousand acres
of inferior uplands. It Is expected at the de
partment that they will not hear so much
about settlers wanting tin- reservation
opened to settlement. Had 'he department
acted In n friendly way to the settlers and
on business principles It would have been
opened over one year ago and the extra
batch of school lands could have been tak
en out of the Wichita country.
This plan worked very prosperously until
the governor of Oklahoma, under the new
law, decided to mark off much more land
In the reservation, for school purposes,
than Is covered by the Indian allotments.
This rendered nil such Infornritlon per
fectly useless. The new law broke up the
business of the party who had Information
to sell. Hut, strange to observe, soon after
It was rendered Impossible to sell Informa
tion about the allotments, the ban of se
crecy was removed from the Indian allot
ments by tho department. Just as soon as
the business In Oklahoma was broken up
by tho bchool land matter, no longer did
It seem necessary to keep the matter

soon ii his otllce expires or he Is removed,
nnd after thnt make a break for the sen

Torever out of Illinois politic and will

Ihe Northern district Is due to an appeal
made bv c-Somitnr Ilntler, who l an
uncle of lliitherfotd. lie has very little
Indorsement' beside the appeal mado by

the attorney general walked over to the
department of Justice. Soon after the ap
pointments, were unnouneid It was univer
sally considered to mean that the president
had concluded to make a play for the
Texni delegation In the next convention.
It Is observed (hat while Mr. Kllgore
wanted the Northern district so that the
Texas crowd could get nil the fees In the
tertltory, the Illinois ronttngent made a
combination to allow Mr, Springer th.it
district, but at Ihe same time Mr. Cul

The whole matter l In the Hue or tak
ing care of the "exes" and holding on to
those who will likely control the Texas
and Kentucky delegations tor the president
In the next convention.
There was much surprise that the presi
dent so completely upset the recommend. i
tlonx of the iitliirney general. This Is ex
plained by the suggestion that Olney was
looking after men who would attend to the
duties of the olllees, and he did not take
Into consideration the matter of White
House politics. The result Is very amusing
In view of the fact that the president had
often said that lie wanted good Judges.
Neither Springer nor Kllgore has had a
case In couit for twenty years, and neither
ever acted in Judge In any case.
The defeated applicants were looking very
weary to-night, offer a few hours' reltection
over their fate. Mr, C.eoige, of Kansas
"Well. I ought lo have bad more sense
than to have tried to bucK the govern
ment." In till connection It may be of Interest
lo observe that Mr. George has applied for
the appointment of attorney for the Na
tional Itank of Kansas (ily. This appoint
ment Is made by the comptroller of the
Hon I.afayetle. of the Indian country,
who had the Vest pull, said:
"1 could feel all light If i had not forced
Mr. Vest to humble himself before the
president ami nsk for mv appointment, lie
said before he went that It would be like
pulling eye-teeth for hlni to go (here, tint I
Insisted, and he then told me that Senator
VlhiM and the other administration senat
ors had told him that If be would go to
the White House and ask tho president for
favors he would get -them. In fact, the
president wanted to see htm, and do busi
ness with hlni. Hut It seems thai this was
all a trick. It was a snaie, and I aided In
getting Senator Vest to go up theie and
humiliate himself, and get turned down
and made ridiculous. I care very little
about being dumped bv the problem, but I
do hate very much (o have been u parly to
this scheme lo give Senator Vest the
worst of It."
Thli will give some Idea of the Missouri
end of ihe disappointment, but when It is
recalled that the senator bad his son set
apail lor assistant attorney lu the North
ern dlstrh I. after a relative had been made
attorney In the same district, It may be
the president concluded that this was
enough for one senator to have In one dis

had with the president, which was covered
