Washington, May I 1.-Solicitor
General Richards, on the opening of
the Supreme Court next Monday, will
take initiatory steps in actions against
the States of North Carolina, Florida,
Louisiana and South Carofina to re
cover the following sums alleged to
be due the United States from these
States, respectfully: $140,140, S20,
935, $54,220 and $248,750.
These actions are instituted by the
Attorney General at the request of
the secretary of the Treasury, in ex
ecution of the requirement of the 4th
section of the Act of Congress, ap
proved March 3, 1899, entitled "An
Act to amend an Act to reinburso
the Governors of the States and Tor
ritories for expenses incurred by them
in aiding the United 03tates to raise
and organize, and supply and equip
the vountoor army of the United
States in the existing war with Spain"
and authorizing the bringing of suits
to collect claims3 against such States
as are indebted to the government.
The stocks and bonds which form
the foundations of these proceedings
are those which were originally held
by the Secretary of the Interior, as
trustee, for the benofit of certain
Indian tribos, commonly known as the
"Indian trust fund," the purchase
whereof had been authorized by
various Acts of Congress under vari
ons treaties had with various Indian
tribes. These stocks and bonds not
having been paid at the resIpe3tive
dates of their maturity, and the in
terest thereon not having been paid,
the Unmted States redeemned the same
by paying to the Indian tribes the
value thereof and sub)rogated itself
to the rights of the Ind ians,and by the
IndianAppropriation act of August15
1894, these bonds became the absoluteo
property of the United States. It
is to ehforce the payment of principaL4
aind interest. due upon these stacks
and bonds that these suits have been
instituted in the original jurisdic
tion of the Supreme Court of thet
United- States, that being, under the
jConstitution of the United States,
the only form in which the Federal
Government can snu a State.r
