The republican leaders, with the sp
prnuch of the opening of the Fifty-first
congress, grow uneany. For the first
time in yeart they posters the pretidebcy
and both tranches of the oational assem
bly. The responsibility Is unavoidable.
No more ta.k of the "opposition of the
democratic party Id the house." wo mora
talk of "democratic vetoes. " The repub
lican party in the coming trttion mutt
tueet tbe ianui s of the dny squarely. The
revition of tbe tariff. wbi h the senate
bill of the last session dctlarvd to be im
per alive, must be madu. Appropriations
for purposes long delayed must te levied.
Quibbling and lying will avail little dur
ing this f stion. In hinwj '.he Louie. tbe
democratic purty it fortunate, Inasmuch
at It leaves its enemy enough rope to
hang ittelf. Certain republican members
will doubtlisi Lave much to say in tbe
coming session of thi: faulty and harrass
Irg riilct of the house. It is the opinion
of candid m.-n on both tides tbat the
rule w ill not be seriously changed. At
any rate any movement looking to the
curtailment of tbe power of the minority
in at nesrly balanced a body as tbe pres
ent bouse, will meet with vigorous impo
sition, and could ot.ly result in Ignomini
ous defeat. Any attempt on the part of
the repuM rant to increase their slender
majority by throw ing out duly elected
membrrt, will be resisted.
The civil service Uw will doubtless re
main undisturbed. There may be cod
sideraMe talk about which dmlnistr
tion. Mr. Clevdund's or Mr. Harrison's,
has ten guilty of tbe greatest laches re
garding the law, hut tbe law ittelf will
remain, though perhaps tlightly modified.
The alleged selling of copies of questions
in advance of their use in examination,
will doubtless be referred to ft committee.
There art enough men pledged to the law
in both parties to ,lire ,u relcDlion
The I.Uir edjeational bill will b intro
duced early in u,e se.,in by it father,
nd the senator may be depended upon
to push It through the higher body. Its
fate in the house is. however, of grave
doubt. There la k Lot men on the re
publican aide in the house who regard
such a bill at"botnly a menace to tbe
perpatulty of educational opportunities
in the south, but also as unconstitutional.
With tbat feeling the democratic minor

Washington Citt, OoL 30. Secretary
Nob' has addressed a long letter to Gov
ernor Faircbild, chairman ot tha Cherokee
commission, on tbs Cberoke atrip and tbe
cattlemen. He charges the Cberoke Strip
Live-Stock association with attempting to
thwart the beneficent purpose of th gov
ernment, and reaches the conclusion tbat the
syndicate propose to outbid th United
States for these lands, and to enter the arna
as citizens contending with tbs Na
tional government. Th secretary ituitts
tbat the cattle syndicate falls wuhin th law
prohibiting cittxeni from making lease with
tbe Indians; that lease of the Cherokee
outlet are unlawful and illegal, and that tbe
president has authority to declare invalid tha
agreements or leases for grazing purposes.
aud to remove all unauthorized persons from
the reservation whenever their presence is
behaved to be detrimental to tb peace and

The Cattle Company Denounced.
In concluding his letter th secretary says:
"It therefore appears that th proposition of
the United States is not only fair but muni ft1
out, wbi.e the title to tbe use even by tbe
Cberokees is precarious and liable to be de

no authority to make a leas such as pro

I therefore announce to you, iu order

propose to male leases with tbe Cherokee
nation for grazing upon the Cherokee outlet
do to with tbe knowledge expressly conveyed
by the secretary of tbe interior to them, at
well as to the Cherokee nation, that such
leases are unauthorized an t void
tbat the interference by offer of what are
deemed future and extravagant payments to
the Cherokee nation, to be made by certain
persons who have s:arted up with their prop
osition since tbe c mgress of tbe United

meat to consider tbe propriety of laying its

of law and against the public interests, and
to restrain them from proceeding further in

And it i now deemed that any such

without injury or suffering to their oat tie

to be to the best interests of tbe Cberoke
people, judged by any standard, to receive
