Secretary Hitchcock, after laboring with
the question for several months, has finally
decided that the agreement between the
lrdlaes and settlers entered Into In Novo.-n-ber
last year is the only solution to this
Bvost perplexing problem, and he has ac
cordingly recommended lo Senator Thurs
ton chairman of the Indian affairs com
mittee, that such Itglaiatlon be enacted as
will put an end to the trouMe.
Se-cretary llltihcoc. la his letter, en
close! a bill, which Senator Thurston will
pietent tomorrow at an administrate
measure, and hopes either to get It in the
Itdlan appropriation bill or paa It as
separate measure. The bill, as drafted by
th'j interior department, short and car
rler out the provisions of the agreement.
Fe-cretsry Hl'chcork states in bis letter
that under the act of March 3, Hf'S. re
peated but unavailing efforts hail boei(
made by succeeding secrctarltb of the In
terior to revise and adjust the sale of these
lends on principles of equity, so as to ex
tend the benefits of. as contemplated by
the act. to both full paid and delinquent
purchasers, their be Irt- and legal represent
atives; that these efforts have been repeated
so often and have been so uniformly un.

of making any revision or adjutment ot
sLloti with the consent of the Indians, and
which include both classes of purchasers,
settlement In lStlti.
On November V. 1S0P. foiled States In
dian lm-pector James McLaughlin at Otoe
sub-agency, Otoe. O. T. made a settlement
with the Otoe and Missouri tribe of Indians
upon the basis that the original appraised
value of land, together with 25 per cent of
such appraised value, should, for the pur
pose of tettlement. represent the purchase
price of paid lands, that Interest shall be
computed on the purchase price so ascer
tained at the rate of 5 per cent, and further,
from the amount o ascertained to be due
in each instance shall be deducted all pay
ments heretofore made on said land.
This agreement was signed by seventy
three adult male members of the tribe, out
of a total of eighty-eight, which is more
than three-fourths, requited by tribal cus
toms and regulations of the department.
It Is tho belief of the secretary that after
having had two conference with delega
tions from the tribes and after careful con
sideration of the matter, that tho best In
terests of all concerned will te sutserved If
the plan of adjustment between the Indians
and delinquent purchasers Is authoritatively
adopted and carried Into effect, and this
controversy, he says, so long pending, should
be clced without further delay. He e,ay,
that while under the act of March 3. 1533.
consent of the purchasers was not made a
condition to revision and adjustment thereby
authorized, it Is worthy of consideration
that about 110 out of a total of 12Z delin
quent purchasers have Joined In proposing
this adjustment and i.tand ready to comply
with Its; terms If It be approved. He therefore-
earnestly recommends the adoption of
IMcn for the Veteran.

continued In service by n resolution adopted

In September. IS!'!', appeared before the
committee and made an exhaustive argu
ment in favor of this home or sanitarium.
He showed the poslti'-e necessity of adding
to the capacity of the hospital service of the
already overcrowded national homes, eight
In number, and all located within 500 feet
of the 6ea level, two west of the Mississippi,
one In Kansas and one in California. He
said there were about S0.000 Inmates in all
the homes, one-third of wliom were hospital
patients, more than half of these being af
flicted with rheumatism, for which the
waters of the hot springs of South Dakota
were an almost sure cure. He said there

which H. C. Frick filed Tuesday to break the
binding force of the "Ironclad" agreement
and recover from the Carnegie Steel com
pany, limited, the market value of hit hold
lags In that concern, Is the main line of at
tack opened by the antl-Carncgie adherents,
the minority stockholders, who are lined up
against the policy of Mr. Carnegie. It Is
al' :Yc"r,al? t0 ,I,"0W !l ","h the
cult attacking tho validity of the coke con
tract of the Carnegie company with the H.
C. Frlck company.
Attorney William B. Rogers, although re
fusing to deny or affirm hi connection with
the big case. Is commonly credited with hav
ing In charge the preparation ot tbe roke
contract end of tbe matter. it Is expected
that this suit will be filed in Greensburs.
as Mr. Trick's attorneys at thai point have
been In frequent consultation with attorneys
reprre-entlng Mr. Frlck In this city. The
suit, however, will not likely be precipitated
for some days yet, and perhaps several
weeks may elapse before It U ready for fil
ing In the courts.
The sum of money Involved In the pro
pored suit Is said to run up to a gigantic
figure. The estimated total of tbe Carnegie
Steel company's dally consumption of coke
is POO cars. Tbe Frlck company produces
about 1.500 cars of roke per day, so that
three-fifths of the whole gos to the steel
concern at the low price of tl.35 per ton
In other words, the Carnegie Steel com
pany, it is alleged, saves from $15,000 to
J1S.000 a day. With the cost of production
and freight rates and other items of ex
pense In the manufacture of coke constantly
going up. the minority stockholders of the
coke company say that If the contract Is
allowed to run their profits will be
eventually cut to almosKnotblng. The suit,
then, will ask the court to annul tbe agree
ment altogether and relieve them from a
situation that has bevn forced upon them
by the majority holdings.

DBADWOOD. S D.. Feb. IS (Spetlal )
The Black Hills republicans seem to be
coming to a more definite understanding
about wh.it they want this coming election
There has been a good deal ot uncertainty
for some time, whether to aek for a senator
or a concressman, but there now si-ems to
be a settled feeling that Mr. Gamble will
not stand for the senate, in which case the
Black Hills republicans will claim that of
fice and they would be conceded It by the
republicans of the eastern part of the state.
There have been a good many prospective
candidates" from the different cities of the
Hill, fcr cither the office ot senator or con-
grefsman. In the last few days sentiment (
seems to have centered upon E. W. Martin
an attorney ot Dcadwood. for senator. He l
being taken up by the republican papers of
the entire Black Hills, especially In Fall
River county, which Is la the most toutbern
part of the Hills. The outside Black Hills
towns have quite generally conceded the
enatorshlp to a Deadwood man. A number
of the leading republicans cf the eastern
part of the state are In Deadwood at pres
ent attending court. They, speaking for the
parly across the river, concede a senator to
the Black Hills. Mr. Martin, who will prob
ably be tbe man for the place, is popular
all over the Hills and he would be able
to unite all of the counties with Lawrence
county. slntf of rnlniilti.
The fusionlsts of the Hills bave already
made un their slate, althourh It mav be
changed quite materially before the cam-
palgn is really on. Senator Pettlgrow Is !
the nenatorial champion and Judge Joseph
B. Moore 1 his running mate. The Lead ,
Call, whlchc Is Judge Moore's organ, print
a two-column article, boosting; him for
congress. Senator Pcttigrew is claimed to
be "making a gallant fight against im
perialism and militarism In behalf ot the
great common people of the United States,
as against the hirelings of the. concerted
wealth ot tho world."
All fusionlsts. however, do not coincide
with the Call bocft for Judge Moore's
nomination It Is rumored that ex-Congressman
Knowlcs will come to the front
at the right time and will stand for an
other run. Mr. Knowles has his reform
paper running now with a good circulation
In the Hills, and he may give Judge Moore
a clrnr run
il. J , u
The indications are that the campaign
this fall will Ik- one of the htttest that the
Black Hills has ever had.
