THE NEW DAWES COMMISSION.
It Is Now Com plel ed anil Hnprt Aro Ihi-
terlalnctl Thnt II May AcctimplMt
Washington. April 11. (Special.) As
the D.iwc -commission now stands It It
made ui. of cx-Scnntor Halve", Unptnln
McKcnnon, of Arlsana.it, who were on tho
original commission, nnd the now mem
ber", C.eneinl Armstrong, of thlt ilty, e
eongresmin Uab miss, of Oeorgla, and
ex-('ongresmati Montgomery of Ken
tucky, who were appointed vettcrdny.
It It gencrullv conceded til it the only men
on the commission who know nnj thing of
the hutlnett to come berorc tin1 commit
slon are ex-Senator D.iwet and Oencral
Armstrong. The latter mi born in the
Indian country nnd lived there over thirty
xears and hat held position In the Indian
mtv Ice a number of timet. At to Cub-miss
and Montgomery they an- "exo.
were never in th.it country nor on a rom
mltteo In the house, that liail nny l.n-1-nes
with Indian nITalis. They are simply
run In to draw pay and favor from the
(idmlnWtratlon. Ciibnnlsx was upynlnted
through the Inlliience of Secretary femlth
and as to MontKomery he stood by the
whisky men on the ways, and means com
mittee, and In addition to their support
liad the aid of l'ostmatter (lener.il Wil
son. Theie will likely be a nut-ting of tho
commission here soon to talk with the
president about the work and after that
the members will go to the Indl in coun
try, reaching there about May 1. Chair
man Dawes it anlous to Bet to business
before tho hot season sets in, for when
that comet on he will return to his home
in Massachusetts Mr. Armstrong ad
vances the Idea that the commission
should spend considerable time with the
Indians and pay veiy little nttentlon to
the people who are in the towns who are
not Indians. It Is pioposcd to show the
Indians that they are being Imposed upon
by the crowd In that country und that It
Is to their Interest to Bet their full share
of the lands. This will be the programme ot
tw nnmnikqlnii nR manned out bv Mr.
11 Armstrong. lie believes the commission
I ( will have done much work by the time con-
p uress convenes.
"I believe tills commission will be able to
do huslnes with the IKc tribes. It is my
opinion, as an Interested party on tho
hide of the Indians, that it is time to get
down to work and that It will be better
for the Indian to deal with this commis
sion uml the present congress than to take
chances on some other administration and
ome other eongrest. I bellce that this
will be made evident to them nnd when
thnt is done those whose Interests aro
ugilnst making a change cannot
defeat a wise plan of dividing tho linds
and establishing a new order of things.
I think If this new commission will so at
the matter right they will have some plan
accepted by the Indians by the nct con
gress when matters can be adjusted and
the people will be better satlslled than
they are now."

bridge was finally linlahed nnd Colontl llat

cro-sed over safely, with ordtrs to form a

their lire h id not prevented tho lomple

It. Dining the night they threw immense

destruction of the bridge Colonel ilnttve

Washington, April H. The Washington
Times this mornnlng, In Its leading edi

In All linpnrtiint Public
New York, April 14. Jninei W. Scott,
proprietor of the Chicago Tliuos-lkt.ilil
nnd the Chicago livening Putt, died this
afternoon at a o'clock nt the Holland
house, this city, lilt denth was very mid
den. He was taken with pains In the
left side this mornlnc nnd 11 doctor was
called. lie said tho pain nrose from tho
passage of n stono fiom the bladder, nnd
administered morphine. At 1 o'clock
.Mr. Scott became unconscious nnd the
doctor was hastily summoned again, lie
found that apoplexy hail supervened,
probably brought on from the Haiti, and
Mr. Scott died without recovering con
sciousness. Mrs. Scott and a little niece were tho
only tolatlvet with him.
The news of Mr. James W. Scott's death
spread quickly, and a number ot his friends
In the city nnd from tho West, who hap
pened to be In New York, called and sent
to Mis. Scott tin Ir condolence nnd ex
pressions of deep svmpath'y. Among those
who called weiu: Ambrose Butler, .Inines
S. Metealf, of "Life;" Walter Dunham,
.Moses 1'. Handy, and John U. Wllkle, who
leturned from London yesterday. "
Captain John Allen, V. S. N.. said ho was
never more shocked than when ho heard
of Mr. Scott's death. He considered his
lost to Chicago would be irreparable. He
had 1111 immense lnlluence In political nnd
municipal affairs, and Invariably did what
"I win. at the Waldrof with him last
night," said .Mr. Allen. ".Mr. Seott never
appeared In better spirits. I asked him
why he called the consolidated ncwspnpers
the Times-Herald. He s-ild, nughlng,
'When the paper It folded the word Times
will be on the Inside and the name Hciald
vrlll always appear on the outside' Mr.
Scott was a. dear, BtrodVwlali, and 1 shall
miss him more than I can tell "
Tlie funeral will take place In Chicago,
but no date has jet been fixed. Mr. Scott's
body will be conveje-d to that citv to-morrow
afternoon by the West Shore limited.
Tlie newspaper men of this city will make
arrangements to escort the body to that
city. They will hold a meeting to-morrow
morning to complete arrangements.
Dr. lrvvln tald: "Mr. Scott's dentil was
due to apoplexy. He was a short man unci
very stout I have no doubt there was a
fatty degeneration of the heart. Mr. Scott
had long suffered from r nal calculus. Tills
was especially troublesome tills morning
and Mr. Scott did not leave his loom. The
agony caused him to thrash aliout In hu
led and the exertion burst 11 blood vessel
in the brain and eaifcd his death. The
kidney trouble had nothing to do with his
death bejond the fat t that It caused the
activity which biought oil tho nttaek."
