The Invaders Given Gpportunity to Eetire
Without Force.
Leavexwortii, Kan., March 17. 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.
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
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
GrTHRtE, Ok., March 17. Inquiry at the
military headquarters here has elicited the

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.

In Colombia, Presumably to lind a Beati
ful Spanish Girl.
New YonK, March 17. 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. 'Ayer'sSarsaparilla
purifies it.

VlCKSBUKG, Miss., March 17. 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.

II. Cone, post 399; Thomas Swinney, post
434. The department commander desires
to impress the fact, that the position of

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

Third. 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. As intelli
gence and virtue are the foundation stones
uiKMi w hich the fabric of our government

A oopy of tie official enroUaeent f the old t
diers in the county, aad that aa apptiea t
tion for membership be at once placed in
the hands of all those who are not already
members of the Grand Army, with a re
quest that he either sign it orrettirn.it
with a statement of his reasons for not
doing so. 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.
An Irishman was asked for his marriage
certificate. He lifted his hat, revealing a
large scar on the head, evidently done with
a flat iron. This evidence was to the point.
Our certificates are the praises of thoe
who have experienced wonderful cures by
the use of Dr. Bull's Cough Syrup.
