Chief Gabriel Renville Relates
Some Interesting Stories
About Gen. Sibiey.
Chief Gabriel Venville.of the Sisseton
and Wahpeton Indians, and Samuel J.
Brown, ex-scout and son of Mayor
Brown, one of the most prominently
known officers of the period coveted by
the massacre, came to St. Paul yester
day and are staying at the International
hotel. The purpose or their visit is to
St'< are the support ot all the old settlers
resident in St. Paul, who are familiar
with the details of the Indian massacre,
from its outbreak to its close, in their
effort to remedy what is regarded as
a serious defect in the wording of the
act recently approved, which provides
for the payment of $376,578.37, and an
annuity or $218,400 to certain members
of the SissHou and Wahpeton nation,
who served as soldiers and scouts in the
United States army during the insurrec
tion. By the wording of the act the
above sum of money, which is granted
as arrears of annuity under the terms of
the treaty ratified July »'3, ISSI, is to be
distributed per capita among the In
dians on the reservation at this time.
The report submitted by the commission
sent to negotiate with the Indians a
year ago, for the settlement of their
claim against the government, cited
that it was the unanimous
wish of the Indians that
the annuity of 81«,400 to be paid to them
under the terms of the treaty until July
I together with the amount due
nnuity of $13,400 to be paid to them
r the terms of the treaty until July
U, together with the amount due
for arrears, should be paid per capita to
tlie tribes, rather than to scouts and
their descendants. The reasons for this,
said the commission, were the long
lapse of time since the suppression of
the revolt, the loose marriage relations
prevailing "with the Indians, and the
titter impossibility of ascertaining who
were the legitimate descendants of the
friendlies. This rtport is characterized
■ndlies. This report is characterized
Jlnef Renviile and ex-Scout Brown
as grossly false in all essential particu
lars, and an evident effort to divert the
money from the channel it was intended
by congress to follow. They assert that
a large percentage of the present oc.cu
pany of the reservation is made up of
«ians who were Hostile
to the government during the trouble,
and others who are not legitimate resi
dents of the reservation, in that they do
not belong to the classes designated as
eligible for residence thereon in the
original treaty of 1807. The number of
Indians now on the reservation is about
ians now or. the reservation is about
1,457, all of whom will be beneficiaries
if he annuity is distributed per capita.
The numoerof Indians actually entitled
to money out of the annuity is about
1,250, all told, these comprising the
members of the tribes and their de
scendants, who were actively friendly
to the government. It "is sug
gested that the. report of the commission
intentionally misrepresented the con
dition of sentiment among the Indians
interested in the annuity, tor political
purposes. The act provides for the sep
arate payment of Indians oil the res
ervation who, during the war, served as
scouts and soldiers, but in dealing with
those on the reservation the per capUa
clause is the only provision. The dis
tribution of the money under the law
as it now stands will be the perpetration
of a gross injustice to those Indians who
fought against the . uostiles. It gives
equal benefits to hostile and friendly
alike. The former forfeited their right
to the annuity by taking arms
against the government, while the
latter are entitled to the full
provisions of the original treaty, having
violated none of them. An additional
evil that will result from such a method
of distribution as that provided for. will
be that Indians of no title to residence
in the reservation or to the possession
of land theieon under the seyeralty act,
will throng in as soon as it becomes
known that the government makes no
distinction between friend and i foe.
These representatives of the govern
ment adherents at the time of the mas
sacre, do not assert that all the Indians
included under the act ware hostile, but
that many of them were, and many
others are not legal members of the
tribes. Chief Kenville, who has already
personally laid the
iPBI Case as I! Stands
before the secretary of the i nterior, is
now engaged with the co-operation of
ex-scout Brown, to enlist the efforts of
the people of the state of Minnesota
towards establishing the separate rights
of the ex-scouts and soldiers, and re
ceiving their designation as benefici
aries apart from other residents on the
Sobielle Kenville, the aged chief now
in the city, was chief of scouts under
Gen. Sibley, receiving his appointment
Oct. 15, 1863. The county of llen
yille was named after him. He is now
in possession of interesting documents,
war orders, etc., signed in the well
Known hand of the now deceased
soldier. He is still as erect as a young
man and is apparently no les3 active
than when in the saddle on behalf of
the government ho did yotman's
service. When the massacre broke out
in 1863, ten installments had been paid
the Indians under the terms of the
treaty granting them §73,000 annually in
consideration of the cession of the west
ern half of Minnesota to the government.

treated alike. When it was spread
abroad that Sibley and his army were

joined Sibley. being subsequently 'en

The Maj. lJrown referred to iv the
above order, was the father ot
who is now with Chief Renville in St.
Paul. Both were warm personal friends
of the late general, and they have sus
tained the loss of their best friend in
his death, as in fact, is felt to be the
case by all the friendly Indians of the
critical p. -nod. The visiting represent
ative ot the Indians state that no ob
jection is urged to the enjoyment of all
benefits derived from residents on the
reservation, except that of participation
in the annuity arrears, and the annuity
of (18,400 to which, it is justly
urged, only those Indians who
fought with and for the gov
ernment are entitled. The basis of
distribution of the annuity should be
the original scouts and their families,
who numbered about ßßo. These with
others who for various reasons are en
titled to participation now number
about L.250. The representatives assert
that there should be no trouble in estab
lishing the proper line between those
entitled Xt benelit from the annuity and
those not so entitled, as those who were
within tiie federal lines during the war
are properly regarded as friendlies, and
those outside the lines as hostile to the

McCafferty Makes a Determined.
Fijjht l»>r a Client.
The habeas corpus application of Jo
seph White, who is wanted at Eau
Claire, Wis., to answer a chaise of
burglarizing a store and carrying away
81,500 worth of silks, etc., was decided
by Judge Sbiras yesterday. This is the
fifth petition for babeas corpus in re
gard to the same matter, and was beard
by Judge Shiras sitting in the United
.States circuit court upon an appeal
from tbe United States district court.
J. J. McCafferty lias stuck to his client
in the various proceedings and tbe case
has been ably contested by \V. E.
Frawly. of Eau Claire, in behalf of the
state of Wisconsin. Judge Shiras filed
an exhaustive opinion, deciding the
case in which the facts and the law are
laid down with precision according to
his views. White was discharged upon
the torraer applications because of vari
ous defects in the papers and pro
ceedings as well as for lack of
being properly identified as being
the party wanted. It was contended, as
one point in this application, that White
having been previously discharged the
matter was res adjudicate, and that he
ought not to be again arrested for the
same offense. On this point the court
holds that he was not released at the
former times upon the merits of the
case, and as the papers and proceedings
were defective in those cases his dis
charge under them is not a bar to an
arrest upon perfected papers or pro
ceedings. He is not illegally held
now. as the papers are regular,
and lawfully issued by the governor
upon due and sufficient cause being
shown, it is also held that the question
of identity is sufficiently established.
The onler of the district court discharg
ing the wtit of habeas corpus, and re
manding White to the custody of the
the sheriff of Ramsey county, to be by
him turned over to the Wisconsin au
was affirmed by Judge Sbiras. Judge
McCafferty said last evening that he
ha;! not given up the fight, but will ap
peal to the United States supreme court.
BIG ARRAY OF TALENT.
The Liangevin Will Contest Opened
by Judge Corrigan.
The trial of the contested will of the
late millionaire, Edward Langevin, filled
the probate court yesterday with inter
ested parties and spectators. Judge
Olivier. having drawn and witnessed the
execution of the will, was disqualified
from hearing the application to probate
it, and Judge G. 11. Corrigan, of the
Minneapolis court, is hearing the mat
ter. Mr. Langevin was a pioneer in St.
Paul and died at an advanced nee a few
months ago at his home in West St.
Paul. His estate was valued at $'MO,
--000 in real estate, , with personal
property assessed at 181,000. The real
estate has encumbrances to the extent
of $373,000. When the will was made
public, George Langevin. a sou. was, to
the discomfiture of divers of his credit
ors, found to be disinherited. The
creditors appeared before Judge Morri
son when the will was filed for probate
and made objection thereto on the
grounds of inability to make a will, and
also that undue influence was brought
to bear upon the old man to cut off
his son George. Judee Morn
son at that time refused to
hear the objections of the creditors of
George Langevin on the grounds that
they were not as creditors entitled to a
hearing. The matter was taken to the
supreme court upon a certiorari, and it
was decided by that court that the credi
tors of an heir-at-law have right to make
ocjection to the probate of a will. The
present hearing is in consequence of the
decision of the supreme court.
Judge J. L. McDonald appears for
Mrs. Langevin, who offered the will for
probate, and the creditors of George
Langevin, to the extent of about $25,000,
have among them C. W. Youmrman,
represented by Young & Lightuer;
Helen M. Messenger, by H. Farwell;
George W. Gray, by Thompson & Tay
lor; McDonald Bros., Charles E. Metz
and others, by J. F. Fitzpatnck; J. S.
Mackey, by George L. Dunn.
The testimony in favor of probating
the will was all heard yesterday and
the testimony of the objectors mil begin
Judge Olivier testified yesterday that
he had known the late Edward Langevin
for over thirty years and had drawn up
numerous legal papers for him. He
drew up the will and witnessed its
execution, and on the same day drew up
a deed for him. He knew the man in
timately and believed him of sufficiently
sound mind to make a will.
Andie Auber. W. F. Nelson and Dr.
J. E. Nelson also testified to knowing
Mr. Langevin for a number of years,
and believed him capable to make a
will and knew of no duress or undue in
fluence being brought upon him in mak
ing a will.

JUDGES FAIL TO AGREE. -
Important Decisions Filed in the
The supreme court yesterday handed

of which Chief Justice Gilfillau and

A Dissenting Opinion.
Chief Justice Gilfillan and Judge
Diekenson dissent, and in the opinion
filed by them say:
Wlien the payee or ludorser of a promissory
note merely writes his name on the back of
it. the presumption is that he does it for the
purpose of a double contract; a contract of
transfer and a contract of conditional liabil
ity, in such case the law implies the two
contracts, because, that being the form in
which, by the lav/ merchant, the two con
tracts are entered into, it presumed the par
ties intended both. The implication is not
made contrary to their manifest intention.
i All the authorities agree that by writing over
the signature they may exclude any implica
tion. .The only Difference in the cases
is as to what will have that effect. In our
opinion, when the writing expresses, no
matter in what form, the purpose with
which the name is indorsed, it excludes the
implication ot any other purpose. Wheu
the writing expresses one contract, the par
ties will be presumed to have expressed all
they lnienaeu: the written will be presumed
to be the entire contract. It shows that the
parties were not content with the implica
tion of intention which the law raises upon
the bare signature on the back of the note.
For why should they take pains to express in
writing one of the contracts, which would
be implied from the bare signature, if they
intended not only that contract, but tne other

OLR LiETTEHS SAVED
From the Fire in n Mail Car on
the New York Central.
Postmaster Lee last evening received
an official letter from R. O. Jackson,
superintendent of the New York divis
ion of the postal service, concerning the
burning of v car of mail mutter and
bagsage on the New York Central Sun
day evening. The train left New York
city at (i p. in., and caught fire soon
after leaving Schenectady, from some
unknown cause. The car was
dropped from the train at Amster
dam and the tire extinguished.
In the car there were seventeen pouches
of letters and thirty-two sacks of mail,
merchandise and papers. Some of the
matter was destroyed, other pouches
were damaged, and "a number were to
tally destroyed. Ten pouches of letters
were saved, most of which were in good
condition; ten pouches were in fair
condition, sixteen were badly damaired
and six were totally destroyed. From
information had it is probable that the
letter pouches for Albion, Kock
ford, Medina and Niagara Falls
were among those destroyed. It is
thought that the mail on the interme
diate points was lighter that night than
usual. The postmaster at Amsterdam
reported that he had yesterday sent out
from the burnt car the following pack

The New Store,
Wabasha, Fourth anj Fifth Streets.
We offer to-day 750
pieces of all-silk satin-edge
Gros Ribbons, in the high
qualities regularly sold in
our stock at less than the
manufactuier's prices, viz:
No. 3, 5 cts No. g, 10 cts
Xo. 5, 6 cts No. 12, 13 cts
No. 7, 8 cts No. 16, 15 cts
These prices would be
low even for ordinary grades,
but for our best all-silk rib
-1 bons they are the best val
j ues ever offered, and there
should not be a yard left
after the first day's sale.
They will be displayed on
center tables in main aisle,
I near Ribbon department.

2, 500 fancy Windsor Ties,
full standard widths and

cents each. None are worth
less than 25 cents, and many
are worth considerably
500 boxes soft English
Mull Tourist Ruchings,
cream and white only, at 25
cents a box, containing six
yards. This is positively
the last lot we shall be able
to sell at 25 cents per box,
as they cost more to import
under the new tariff.
50 pieces extra fine qual

25 choice shades, at 30

We have just opened a
choice line of Ladies' Bos

ate prices. A large invoice
of high grade English and
German Shears and Scis
sors at prices that will inter
est economical buyers.
Silk materials are grow
ing more popular every
day. This may be the reas
on why so many cheap and
trashy fabrics are made and
offered for sale. Now, it is
not our object to tell people
what to buy, but it does
seem to us that the poorest
investment that caa be
made is a poor, cheap Silk,
especially when a good qual
ity may be had for so little
money. There are Silks
sold in this country that
actually are not as good for
wear, and not half as hand
some, as a printed Mull or
Organdy, at much lower
Undeniably the best and
handsomest Printed Silks
produced this season are the
Printed "Twilled" Indias,
which we control for Minne
sota. They are not to be
found in any other estab
lishment, except, perhaps, a
straggling piece here or
there. They are artistically
beautiful, - light in weight
and not easily crumpled.
Light and dark grounds,

icate fern or flower tracings
or polka dots and larger
spots. Price $i. Same as
is asked for the ordinary
Printed China Silks.

We do not use a knife to
cut away our cutaways. They
are made of material much
too fine to bear such treat
ment. A well-made cutaway
is a thing" to be admired; a
badly-made cutaway is an
object of general ridicule and
detestation. It is an exceed
ingly unfortunate thing when
the article you have pur
chased does not become
you. You are reminded of
it every time you put it on
and take it off, and, if you
happen' to forget it, there is
always some good kind
friend who will jogyour mem
ory for you — the way of
the world. You need have
no fear, however, that there
will be anything unbecom
ing about our $25 Cutaways,
or 20 ones, either. They
both are tailor-made and will
fit as a cutaway should.
