Gener al Merritt has given orders for the strip to be cleared. In an interview today lie stat ed that there were few people in the strip who didn't know they were there without warrant of law, and they would regret their hasty action at an early date. He ex pressed h JmKelf as feeling sorry for the set- tlers, many of whom, possibly, would be Jinnncmlly ruined. Troops of cavalry nave left Supply, Reno and Oklbhonm and would advance to the strip with little haste in order that the invaders might have time to retire before their arrival. He did not an ticipate any resistance, but felt confident as eooii as the boomers saw the approach of the military they would make a hasty retreat. lie would have the troops move slowly, with great deliberation, it being his desire to inflict as little hardship on the people as possible, but they would be taught compliance with the law with a gentle, but firm hand. BOOMERS COMING BACK. Arkansas City, Kan., March 17. And still they come back from the Cherokee strip. All dny yesterday disappointed and deluded boomers alighted from heavily laden trains which brought them from their new to their old homes. Reports from Caldwell and Hunnewell state that there has leen little excitement beyond the advent of a few belated settlers who had not heard of the president's proclama tion. Lieutenant Charles Dodge, of Gen eral Merritt's staff, arrived here yesterday from Fort. Leavenworth. Speaking of the situation. Lieutenant Dodge said: "I am convinced that a large number of the boomers now located upon the strip will vacate voluntarily when they learn the conditions. A few, however, will remain until they are ordeicd out by the military."' It can bo authoritively stated that should troops be called out they will be located in the southern part of the strip where they can make an effective patroL It is under stood here that Lieutenant Dodge tele graphed General Merritt to that eftect yes terday and troops are expected soon. Ira Burnett, a large cattle owner here, has returned from an extended trip over hit mugo and reports that no cattle have been killed by the iKKimers. He estimates i he number of acre burned over to be at least 100,000, but thinks that enough grass remains to feed the cattle until new ra.s, sprouts. Burnett also reported colonists sn their way out of the strip in great num bers, and was of the opinion that few would remain for the military to displace them. THE OFFICERS RETICENT. ' GUTHIMK, Ok., March 17. Captain Cav tumugh and Lieutenant Dodd, General Merrittvs aides, say that as yet it has not leen definitely settled as to how the troops would enter the strip, but each of the officers thought that General Merritt, military like, would not make known his plans. They will not talk much but enough was ascertained to warrant the fart that troops had already left for Fort Reno. There an1 no cavalry at Oklahoma City but it is thought the infantry sta tioned there ami at this point would possi bly take care of the towns along the rail roiid lines. Boomers are still arriving here from the south, moving toward the f-trip. ATTITUDE OF THE TROOPS. GrTHRtE, Ok., March 17. Inquiry at the military headquarters here has elicited the iufoniHUiou that when the companies ar-1 rive they wil' l dispatched in a body to The Cherokee line ami there cut up into de tachments and placed in a line that v ill probably cover twenty miles. Very little of the course cau le learned from the com mandant, but etiouKh has been gleaned to warrant the statement that the skirmish line will cross through the strip over sixty mihss wide as rapidly as iossibfe and then by flank moveineiUs to the right and left will return to Oklahoma. By this means the entire ntrip will probably be cleared in less than two weeks. NAMED CHEROKEE CITY. CAU)WKi.L, Kan.. March 17. Settlers who are building houses seven mile north of here nr Rock Kland t racks have named the place Cherokee City. Mayor .Tohu AV. Xjtsj denies the rumor that lie led invaders into the strip.

Folger, who has just returned from the United States of Colombia, South America, where he was engaged in dredging the Magdalena river, reports that Frank McGowan, one of Edi son's assistants in his labaratory at Or ange, X. J., is now at work on the same dredging vessel, the Christopher Colon. Mc Gowan is the man wno went to soutn Amer- jca, -n search of a mvsterious plant for Edison to use in making carbons for his incandescent light. He disappeared Janu ary 15 last. He was last seen on his way to'the Christopher street ferry, as if he were returning home to Orange. He had $1,800 with him and foul play was suspect ed. Mr. Folcer sa s he (Folger) left Xew York on the Atlas steamer Athos for Savanilla on January :!0, and lie met McGowan for the first time on the same vessel. By coincidence they were bound on the same errand. Each had siened a contract with ollicials of the Colombian government to take part in cer ake part m cer- tain dredging operations in the Magdalena river. J olger said lie nan cnarge ot tne engine and McGowan and a man named Quigley, who went down with them, were engineers proper in charge of the expedi tion. McGowan, he said, had plenty of rioney and spent it freely. Two years ago, whenin the same county, McGowan fell in love with a Spanish girl and he promised to return to her as soon as opportunity of fered. Folger added that McGowan had not seen the girl when he (Folger) left for the north. Folger returned because his duties com pelled him to remain on the river, and the insect pests of the country were too fond of him. That sense of extreme weariness indi cates disordered blood.

The river has fallen four inches in the past forty- eight hours. The river is falling for a dis tance of twenty miles above and fifty miles below the Raleigh crevasse, which is stead ily widening and was 1,600 wide this morning. The flood will submerge the fairest portion of north Louisiana. Steamers are now removing stock from Tensas parish, and in localities reached by rail removal is the order of the day. The Queen & Crescent authorities expect their threveport division, to be flooded at the delta in a few days. "Water is also showing up at Lake One. The damage by crevasse will be immense, though stock will un undoubtedly be saved for the most part. The Raleigh crevasse has relieved all anxiety for the present. Washington, March 17.

The department commander desires to impress the fact, that the position of aid-de-camp is not to be regarded as merely honorary, but the comrades so honored by being named as aids-de-camp on the de ment staff should bear in mind that they have been selected on account of their fit ness for active duty. They are the im mediate representatives of the department commander in their respective localities, and, as such, will be expected to put forth their best efforts in an earnest endeavor to recruit our ranks and build up our order. Second. The following committees are appointed: Committee to secure the na tional encampment for 1S92 at Topeka Chairman, T. J. Anderson, post 1; Lyman U.

The state soldiers' home at Fort Dodge was opened for the reception of in mates January 1. This home receives veterans of theuniou armv and navy and their wives and such of their children as are unable to support themselves. As the appropriation for this home is only ?5,000 per year until the legis lature meets again, a great many things that ought to be done for the com fort aud pleasure of the inmates must nec cessarily be left undone. The posts and corps throughout the state would aid ma terially by donations of dressing-gowns, cushions, pillows, books, pictures, and such delicacies and fruit as would tempt the appetite of the aged, sick and infirm. Donations should lie sent to D. L. Sween ev. commandant. Dodge City. Fourth. The department encampment, J at its last meeting at balina, by resolution, made the AVest ern Veteran the official organ of this denartment. and recommended that each post immediately subscribe for a j copy, to ue placed on nie, ior uie use oi the"post. Comrades, this is a strictly sol dier paper, published by a worthy comrade of this department and devoted to the in terest of the old soldier, whether he is a member of the Grand Army or not, and each one should become a subscriber, if he is not already, and thus aid in a substan tial manner in making it a power for good in the soldier cause. Fifth. Attention is especially called to the G. A. R. Memorial college located at Oberlin. Kan. The purpose of this institu tion is the free education of all children of the soldiers and sailors of the late war. It was organized and incorporated by certain noble women actuated by the principles of friendship, charity and loj-alf y.

In order to accommodate those living at a distance or who are unable, on account of age or infirmity, to attent post meetings at night, it is recommended that at least every alternate meeting be held in the afternoon. This will give all an op portunity to join with us in further cementing the bonds of fraternity which bind us together as comrades. Those posts which do not have as auxil iaries the Wonians' Relief Corps and Sons of Veterans should at once take steps to secure such organizations. They will be found to be of incalculable benefit in pro viding social entertainments and in caring for and relieving the sick and distressed, and thus infuse new life into those posts that are struggling for an existence, while at the same time they will lessen the burdens that naturally rest upon our or ganization. Comrades, let us one and all go to work earnestly to build up our order. Xo grander organization was ever instituted among men and every honorably dis charced soldier and sailor should be en rolled as : member. "With more than eighty thousand old soldiers and sailors within the borders of our state there is no reason why we cum not have at least thirty thousaml enrolled in the Grand Army by the tim ti national encamuraent meets at Boston in August next if every officer and comrade will do his duty. AYe pride ourselves on being the "great soldier state" of the union, yet our Grand Army membership is below that of even our sister state of Missouri. Kansas is noted for its advanced position and leadership in every movement for the the amelioration and betterment of man kind. Ju this we feel a commendable pride. Then lee us not be behind' in our great work of extending and perpetuating the great jirinciples upon which our order is built and upon which rests the hope of our country.
