lock the cell doois, and axes weie pro
cured. Strong men soon cut a bole in
the six-inch wooden wall of the jail,
although the last man was not rescued

It was a nairow escape for the prison

Washisoton, April 10 President
Cloveland has not had a happy week
of it. First camo the long-delayed
Cuban concurrent congressional reso
lutions, which call for some action on
his part, whether they get it or not;
then ono of his children was taken
down with the measles, and last, and
piolably most worrying of all, he
hears that tho probabilities of the
silver Democrats controlling the Chi
cago convention are Increasing every
day. It Is not believed that the vir
tual repudiation of tho Carlisle boom
by the silver Democrats in Congress
worried him any.

Louis and Denver, and, according to
congressional talk, to launch his oun
boom as a presidential candidate on a
silver platform. Mr. Tillman has al
ready stated, and he will probably
reiterate it ou his trip, that he in
tended to bolt the Chicago convention
if it failed to adopt a platform satisfac
tory to the silver men.
Senator Teller of Colorado has intro
duced a bill to compel all national
banks to keep their reserves in their
own vaults, instead of loaning It out
at Interest to the banks In tho great
money centers. He said that last Sep
tember no less than $200,000,000 which
should have been iu circulation through
the small banks was thus tied tip in
New York City. Senator Hoar of
Massachusetts said tho refotm sought
by Senator Teller was badly needed
and that he hoped the bill would pass.

fight to prevent eougressional action

Dawes Commission providing for allot

Territory, etc., and it looks like they
might succeed. What tho Indlaus
think of this bill was voiced by Mr. S.
Miller, au educated Creek, who is now
in Washington, when he said: "It is
in violation of the most sacred treaties
on the part of tho Government aud the
tribes. It can havo no other effect
than the pauperization of our people,
and their cxtiuction will soon follow.
Tho allotment of lands in severalty,
especially, will prove a curse Instead
of a benefit, for whatever conditions
may be imposed, at the end of a few

Notwithstanding tho open opposi
