Washington, Feb. 7. Tbe attention
of members of the National Republican
committee has been called to tbe fact tbat,
under tbe wording of the call for the Chi
cago convention, it would be possible for a
State committee to prevent the calling
of district conventions. By the
terms ot tbe call twenty days' notice li
required for both State and dis
trict convention!. But tbe district con
vention! cannot meet at an earlier period
tban fifteen dayi before the time fixed tor
the State Conventiou. Now, if tbe Siatt
Committee! ihould not issue their call to
at to give any greater margin tban tbe
twenty dayi, by the time tbe call reached
the district It would be too late to call dis
trict convention!. The members of tbe
committee here admit tbat tbe wording of
the call ii lucb ai to admit ot tbd kind of
harp practice, but tbey do not anticipate
any trouble from it.

Jackson, Miob., Feb. 7. The Crouch
tragedy has been revived In the minds 01
the people here. On Monday James For
who baa worked for Dan 8. Holconib fo
tome time, went to Unlou City, He wa
drunk and disorderly, aud was about tbt
street nearly all day claiming to be looking
for some one be wanted to shoot. At 11
o'clock that night be met Mr. Shu er, tbe
Deputy Poitmateter, ou the itreet, and cry
ing out "Haiti" fired at htm three times.
Une ball went into the back of Shuler's
neck and lodged under tbe tougue, and it
it thought be will die. As soon as be ibot
Sbuler be exclaimed tbat Sliuler was not
tbe man be wanted. Foy ran away,
though cloaely pursued. At an early hour
next morning be appeared at tbe Crouch
bouse, having traveled all night. He
teemed muoh cast-down, and on bain told
of the murder and attack remarked be
would not be taken advu.
He did not eat any breakfast or dinner.
Shortly after noon be itepped into 'the
room near the kitchen, and, plac
ing a revolver back of his rii;ht
ear, fired. Tbe ball tore away part
of the head, and the remains presented a
hideout sight. He died Instantly. Tbe
revolver witb which be killed bimnelf used
tbe tame tized ball as tbe Crouch people
were killed with.
STRANGE ACTIONS OF FOY.
The death of Foy removes one whom it
was generally tbi u :ht knew much of tbe
murder of Nov. 21, if be was not himsell
one of those engaxod in the slaughter.
He has been practically under sur
veillance for some time, and, it Is stated,
was engased as an ameteur detective In or
der to keep bis whereabouts known. A
few week! ago two persons from tbii city
went to tbe Crouch homestead to look over
tbe icene of tbe tragedy. .Foy wai there
and lomewbat under the influence ot
liquor. He was quite talkative, and de
scribed tbe murders in a terribly graphic
manner, giving thi details with great
mlnuteneet. He itated tbat Jacob Crouch
was murdered first, and that Policy
heard tbe nolle and came to tbe door, when
he was killed and carried back to the lied.
One of the visitors then remarked, "One
person must have killed thera all," when
Foy quickly retorted "No, no; one killed
the old man and Policy there was two In
the Job-tbe other killed Eunice and Henry
White." The conversation ioon ended,
but the mlnuteneii nith wrioli Foy de
icribe I th,e murders Impressed tbe visitors
lb, it t oy knew more about the tragedy than
be bad told.
At about 6 o'clock last Saturday evening
Foy entered seem at the bouie In which
tour officers were eeated. At the ilgbt of
so many strong armed repreientatlvri ot
the law he dropped Ihe load ftf wood he
wai carrying and stared at them wltha look
of horror t,od utonlihmint. Still, as be
wai only a green country fallow, tbe circum
stance oonld tot be construed Into any
strong edenoe of guilt, nod he was per
mtttel to punue hit course as usual. The

appeared before the Huute Sub-Commit-
tee on Indian Affair at ihtdr request and
made tbe following statement: . ,
"I charge, sad' stand ready to prove
when opportunity !i offered, first, that
fJWO.OOO was appropriated by the lait Con
greii to pay the Cherokeei for lands bo
longing to them whloh tbe United
State! had taken for the me
of otber Indians; second, tbat said

W. Lipe paid over 7H per cent, of tmid

ou a warrant drawn by said Butbybead to
himself; fourth, tbat said Butbybead paid
over laid t'ii.500 totbe Cherokee delegation,
Ron and Wolfe; and, fifth, that said dele
gaiiou then paid over said fJ2,iW0 to Wil
liam A. Pbiiiips under tbe proteose that it
wa to pay Secretary Teller and Suuator
Dawes for their influence in procuring lho
appropriation of the taid $300,000."
Dawes and Telltr long since called upon
Boudlnot to present his proofs. Boudlnot,
in his statement to tbe committee, makes
"I bave disclaimed, and still do so, all
thought that the distinguished gentlemen
named bave been guilty of thit corruption,
nut, inasmuch as to some be, tbe laid
Phillips, has by languagt aot to be misun
derstood declared tbat he had contracted to
pay this $22,500 to Seoretary Toller and
Senator Dawes and others, has given them
to uuderetand that he bad to pay tbe said
amount to certain "high omciali" in
Washington, I feel tbat I, at a Cherokee
Indian, having an individual interest In the
moneys of my nation thus misappropriated
and stolen, have a right to ask an Investi
gation at the hands of Oongresi Into this
dishonest and shameless transaction. "
' Boudlnot also says: -
"Million! of acres of land, belongioir to
allludiam alike, bave been released, in
direct violation of tbe law, to atyndlcate
of white men tor a mere on to tbe dam
age of every Indian. Tbe official records
show thai these leases, though in palpable
violation of law, have been obtalmd
through the aid and connivance of Indian
Agents and eveu by the approbation or the
Indian Department. There is no relief for
this outrage except through Congress. In
addUlont.o this I will be able to prove tbat
tome ot the persons who have made these
legal leaset bave tub-lit a portion, if not
all of tbem, to otber partlet at an advance
of uie or more cents per acre. More tban
1,000 miles ot wire fenee bave already been
coiibtructed, a part of It even inclosing and
which tbe Untied Slates bat purobated
from Indian tribes."
