Washington, Oot. 17 (Special.) The olllclal
reiort of the Lake Mohonk Indian confer
once reached the Indian olllce to-dny and
the olllclal action tuken has direct bearing
on the Indian luiestlon In the Indian Ter
toiy. The commissioner of Indian affairs
hpeiit omo time at the conference, but
ai unable to remain until It ended and
tho last day of the conference nna de
oted to tho Indian question as found In
tho Indian Territory, "nd the conference
was addressed by ex-Senator Dawes, chair
man of the commission now lu the In
dian country trjIiiR to bring about a
chungo In conditions. Chairman Dawes
traveled all tho way from the Indian Ter
ritory to be on hand at this conference,
nnd, In fact, lie has attended every con
ference for thirteen years. The confer
once Is made up of all the Indian FOcleUes,
tho Indians' Itlghts Association being the
most prominent In the conference.
It appears that It was decided by the
members of the Dawes commission that
it would be well for Chairman Dawes to
como V.asl and attend the conference and
plate tho situation as found In the Indian
Tonltory beforo the Indian societies so
that they would understand the situation
nnd the conditions and this would secure
their support and nld Instead of opposlt'on
In mutters before consols that would
come up In which the whole Indian Tnl
toiy situation would bo under considera
tion Tho proceeding of these conferences are
mo 10 or le"-s of a seciet matter, only such
pat is as aio determined Ii a committee
being given out. The olllclal leport as
huomltted contains the resolutions passed
by tho conlereiu'e, and In due time the
speeches made will be printed In pamphlet
form. So far till has not bi-en done, but
tho resolutions niinl forming platform
for action In matters legislative, have
lieen leeched by the commlsidoner of In
dian attain, nnd It appears plainly fiom
this that Chairman Panes made 11 strong
lmpicri-Ion on the confetenco as shown 1
the i.idlca resolution that followed his
presentation of tho situation as found b
tho commission of which ho Is the olllclal
It Is understood that Chairman Dawes
mudu nil oghretalvo speech to the comer
em o in which ho outlined the exact con-illtim-m
ns toiind In tlie Indian country Ue
followed this with matund suggestion-
uliout what snouiii no uone. Jie stnieci
Hint, In his opinion, the commission would
forever be unable to do anything with tho
Indian nations, for they appear to b" in
the hands of the corrupt rings that man
ipulate that counti. IIo outlined how Iho
,irlous nations are run by u tew Individ
uals, unit how it Is that the rial Indian Is
liolntr Imposed upon by tho squaw men
and the few who '.live the tact to gobble
eveiythlng In that country
Chairman Dawes observed that ho had
leached the conclusion tint It was now
tlmii that the whole matter should bo
taken up by congress. The failure of tho
commlts-ion w.is on emphatic argument In
favor of congressional action. The Indian
lings would pay no uttentlon to them, and
It has been shown that they would not,
nnd It being appuient that they would not
como lo terms with the commission, all
that was left to do was for congiess to
proceed lo leglslato in a way that would

lountiy and break doMii the few who 1110

This wns nn aggressive po-dtlon for Mr,

London, Oct. 17. The Constantinople cor
lespondent of the Standanl says: Tho
Turkish papeis, in announcing the consent
to the Armenian refoims, state the sultan
has decided to iutiodueo leforms In all
provinces of the empire, beginning with
Anatolia. The reforms compilse 1111 Increase
and a icoiganlzation of tho gen d'ai merle
and of the police foices nnd the amelioia
tlon of the administrative and Judicial
blanches of the seivlce.
Tho Chioulcle's Constantinople cnue
spondent says- "Tho sultan has so feared
evaspeiatlug Mussulmen by consenting to
the lefoims that the miulstci was obliged
to imploie him to sign tho document. 1
fear English opinion will lie greatly dis
appointed when the terms of the letoim
scheme heroine known. Hut nothing bet
ter could be obtained without tho appear
ance of the Hrltlsh licet In the Dardanelles,
which would have Involved the Instant
disiuiitioii of tlio entente between Ihigland,
Ilussla and Fiance, and piob.ibly a ltus
slau occupation of Aimenla. Sir Phillip
futile, tberelore, has done the best pos
sible, without causing a seilous hnach
between Ihigland and Russia. This teni
poiary solution, liovvever, will not save
the sultan tiom nn outbienk of dangeious

will piobahly be the victim."

Washington, Oct. 17. Lven nfler the
pi.ictluil conllrm.itlon from Hrltlsh sources
of the statement that the state ibpartment
had addressed a stiong letter uuon tho
Venezuelan bouudai dispute to Alnba.-sa-dor
ilnjard for dellveiy to the Drltlsh for
eign olllce, the olllclals at the state depart,
ment refused to make any admission
touching the subject. The guardul and oil.
dcntly inspired comment of the le.uling
lliltlsh newspapers upon this letter has
attnu ted serious attention among the dip
lomatic bod) hero and they see 111 It a good
deal of signllliancc and possibl.v a threat
of grave (amplications to follow. The
statement that Is held to be of particular
significance is that tile Ililtlsh government
tegards the views set forth In Sccrctar
Ulney's letter ius so Important that a long
time must be taken for Its consideration.
As there Is nothing new to Great llritaln,
cspcclall) In an enunciation In a mild form
of the .Monroe doctrine. It Is assumed hero
that the only purpose of delalng a re
sponse, which tho terms of the letter In
dicated would be gi.itefully received If
sent promptl), Is to aflord to the Hrltlsh
government an oppoitnnit to consult some
of the other gieal Luiopean powers upon
I this subject. Most of these powers are
concerned In the 101 tunes of the American
states, some diicctl), as Prance nnd Spain,
' tluoiigli their colonial possessions, nna eth
ers through heav Investm. ills of their
eltlens in securities and concessions. The
I doctilne laid down by Secretin Olne, If
eairlcd to Its logical conclusion, ptobibiy
1 would eslop uii Interference b force on
the part of a Luiopean power In the nf

no appropriation to rover the expense of

"I or cira LnglUh, French and florinon
