Byers of the North Congre gational church, seems to have become interested in the Coxey fever, lie has been preaching a series of sermons on "David and ilia Times," and his sermon yesterday morning was directed to a dis cussion of the ancient commonweal army and the present- Coxey one. lie contrasted the unrest of the pres ent and the unrest of Israel in Saul's time, and than likened the straggling army of David to Coxey's army. lie found both likeness and differences be tween them. Heing discontented, in dis tress, and longing for better times they were like iae Coxey crowd. Having loyal patriotism for country, being wil ling to work at whatever came to them, and being trustful of Gott they were somewhat unlike the Cxey army. They came to David drawn by the twofold cord of common suffering, and faith in his leadership. They fought for nothing for themselves and their only object seemed to be the perpetuity and happiness of the nation. lu closing, the pastor said: "What we need in these times of unrest and disquiet is to hear the voice of the Son of Alan Baying, 'Coma unto me all ye that labor and are heavy laden and 1 will give you rest. When the teachings of Jesus are lived in the earth, when the armies of the discontented and burdened rally to him, when wealth and poverty alike hear the voice of the Xazarene no army of the commonweal will need to march in discontent on Washington and no Bhallow leaders will gain notoriety by leading men to what they know not."

The Government Has a Lar;e Amount Undisposed Of, Bat the Fertile Soil is About Exhausted. NEED OF IRRIGATION. How It is Proposed to Dispose of- Land. WACHIN6TOS, April 23. Special.! The committees on public lands and on Indian affairs are pretty much of one mind as to the measure introduced by Mr. Mc Kae, and when perfected by some amend ments the general opinion is that it will speedily become a law. The impression has been for some time that there was very lit tle good land remaining' to which this measure could apply, but the figures in the Indian committee's bills and reports show a surprisingly large area which may soon be obtained, and according to- Mr. McRao there is much more in abandoned military reservations and prospective for feitures of railway grants. Everybody has read with much interest of the great rushes made into the recently opened lands In Oklahoma, South Dakota and elsewhere, the result of which was that the most vig orous, sometimes the most desperate and lawless, held the lands. The McKae bill would put an end to all this. It provides for selling the land to the highest bidders, but each purchaser must be a bona fide set tler and obtain only the tract allowed for pre-emption or homestead. In short, he would only buy the exclusive right to take as a settler. Many Small Areas. Several treaties are now pending and sevr era! bills are introduced to give effect to other treaties which will in no long time open considerable land, but several of the tracts are so remote and secluded and also so small in area that they will only be available to intending settlers already in the vicinity. Among these is the land of the Yakimas in the state of Washington, part of which is said to be very good. An other treaty provides for cession of the land of the Yumas in California, but that is chiefly in a region whore water is more val uable than land, as tho latter is only use ful where there is plenty of the former. The Chippewa reservation in Minnesota is of the same general character as other north Minnesota land, and irrigation is notr needed there. By one general treaty now pending the Comanchos, Kiowas and Apaches give up a tract of tolerably good land in the Indian Territory. The large area which tho Yank ton Sioux of South Dakota are asked to surrender is of a varied character, and the testimony as to its fertility is quite con flicting. In all probability it is like most of the land on the dividing line between the dry plains and the region of abundant moisture, where, as Jerry Simpson puts it, '"there is just rain enough to make a fellow hang on and hope and just drought enough to keep him dog poor till ho learns how to farm in such a country." The Bound Valley reservation and tho Klamath river reservation in California comprise some good valley land, with much of the bor dering hills and some rocky points. The land, to be obtained from t he White Moun tain Apaches in Arizona is of a character like the small valleys in Utah and western Colorado that is, it can only bo made available by a large body of settlers acting together in providing a water supply. Otherwise it would be available only for pasture. Tho Kickapoos have some fairly good and both in Arizona and the Indian Ter ritory. This tribe has been noted from an early period in our history as incurably hostile. Within a hundred years they have alternately fought and fallen back before the whites from the Wabash to the upper Arkansas, and when a bare majority of the tribe voted a few years ago to submit and take United States protection the rest declared eternal enmity to the white man and scattered in all directions, and there are today Indians of the Kickapoo blood in British Columbia and the Mexican state of Chihuahua as well as in almost tribe between. every Progressive Red Men. As 6een on the map and as shown in the figures, there seems to be an enormous area of available land, but so much of it is mountain or desert that the best informed witnesses before the Indian committee do not think the total tillable can exceed 6, 000, 000 acres, and it is probably less than that. -As there must be at least half a million men who want to go west, get land and grow up with the country it is easy to see the reasons for Mr. McRae's bill to prevent a rush. Mention of the pro posed treaty with the Xez Pcrces of Idaho revives a languid interest in this progress ive but unfortunate race of Indians. They rank with the Cherokees, Navajoes, the Crecs of Manitoba and some others as hav ing an original civilization or at any rate an inherent tendency toward progress. The earliest expeditions to beyond the Rocky mountains found the Xez Perces su perior to other Indians, and when the JIop mons first extended their settlements northward from Great Salt lake they were met by parties of that tribe and found them the shrewdest traders in horseflesh in tho country as well as very skillful breeders. The story of Chief Joseph is still fresh in the public; mind, and ho is fully recognized as one of the few truly noble red men. bearing the Crucial Period. There is in Oregon a collection of rem nants of tribes, known as the affiliated bands, who propose to cede some land, and that part of the Wichita reservation in the Indian Territory which is to be ceded is described as very fine. The military reser vation at Durango, Colo., is of tho same general character as the Utah and Arizona land above described, and there are other military reservations soon to be made avail able. In the Fifty-second congress a bill passed the house for reclaiming some 50, 000,000 acres of the land granted to rail road companies, but it failed of action in the senate. Lest any reader should be deceived by the figures, it must be added that the most valuable lands have long since passed to private parties, and nearly all that remain consist of mountain and desert, salt, soda and alkali beds. In hort, the briefest ex amination of the maps and of the figures before the two committees shows that we are rapidly nearing, if we have not already reached, that period which our English friends have so long pointed out as the time when our popular institutions would have their severest trials. It is freely ad mitted that of all the forces' modifying American character and insuring the smooth working of our social system none has been so potent as the free fields open in the west as a refuge for the unfortunate, the ambitious and the discontented. All the authorities agree that the land in that field is about exhausted unless the govern xnent adopts the grand irrigation scheme proposed by Major Powell, and many west ern congressmen prophesy that popular pressure will force the adoption of that scheme within 10 years. CALLS IT A GANG. The Breach Betweu Wlllits and the Pop- tills t Administration. John F. Willits, the first Populist can didate for governor, today exposed the condition of affairs in his party. He says the machine has got control of the state alliance and is using all its power to defeat the wishes of the common people in the partv who are true re formers. Mr. Willits was in Topeka a few hours today and left this afternoon for a tour of the state of Iowa. To a State Joubnal reporter he said: "The machine is determined to grind down every man who opens his mouth, and the machine seems to be getting pretty tight grip on a certain element of the People's party, but the machine won't always work. 'At .the last meeting of the state al liance I was authorized to make a tour of the state for the purpose of working up the interests of the order and organized the aid degree of the alliance. I did not ask for the place, but it was given me, and I was to be paid $2 a day ane be allowed mv expenses. 1 started out as soon as I could, and did some effectual work for the order. "One day when I was at McPherson I received a letter from Uovernor .sw elling asking for my resignation from the state board of pardons. I sent him the resignation as reauested bv return mail. 1 then no tified the alliance people that I would now be able to put in my entire time or- g-anizinc- the alliance. "It was however not very long after wards, about two weeks ago now, that 1 received a letter from President Uanna. of ' the state alliance. in which he informed me that owing to the depleted condition of the state alliance treasury he would be compelled to inform" me that my services as organ izer and lecturer would have to be dis pensed with. "This was in face of the fact that I had been wonderfully successful in building up the alliance, and had taken in over tJOO members who will turn into the state treasury $1 each in addition to the ten cents per capita tax which goes to the national alliance. "Governor Lewelling and the machine have a firm grasp on the throat of the state alliance and are determined to grind down every individual who fights them. "I continued the work of organizing, two weeks after they notified me that my pay was shut orf, and I am only now leaving the state to fill an engagement made several months ago to speak in Iowa. I will make a tour of the state of Iowa and then I will come back and fight this outfit. "I never will vote the Republican tick et: nothing could induce me to, but I want it understood that I am eternally opposed to this gang now in power and 1 am troine to tight them to the bitter end even if I lose every friend I have." IN A BED BOAT. Sheriff Bnrdge nu Deputy AVIllteraoii Pusue the 1st. Marys Robbers. Sheriff Burdge und Deputy Sheriff Tom Wilkerson hfcd an exciting chase bunday afternoon for the three men who robbed the St. Alarys postoffice last Fri day night and secured $1,100. About 3 o'clock a tlegram was received from St. Marys saying "Look out for three men in a red boat, going down Kaw river." The telegram gave descrip tions of the men and said they were' the postoflice robbers. This telegram was received by Chief of Police Lindsey and was turned over to the sherift Sheriff Burdge made some hasty in quiries and learned from Mrs. Fred Fensky that the men had gone past the Kansas avenue bridge before dinner,! The officers took the Union Pacific train to Lawrence. Nobody there had seen the men or the red boat in question, but Sheriff Hindman promised to watch the dam for them. Several Lawrence offic ers accompanied Burdge and Wilkerson back to Lecompton on a hand-car. The man who runs the ferry there had not seen them, but promised to notify the sheriff if he saw them. Nothing has been heard from the three men in the red boat yet, but it is improbable that they can ever get past Lawrence. CITY COUNCIL'S WORK. Much of It Wilt Be Mapped Oat at To night' Meeting. There will be a meeting of the city council tonight at 8 o'clock, under'a call issued by Mayor Harrison today which sets forth the following purposes: To open bids and let contracts; to con sider bonds, petitions, communications, ordinances, " resolutions, reports of city officers and reports of committees. On the subject of bids and contracts, the bid of C J. Rosen for the completion of the sewer in district No. 16, ia the only matter to. be dispensed of. Under the head of communications Mayor Harrison -will announce the list of committees for the ensuing year. It is believed that Mr. FoHows will remain at the head of the ways and means committee. Mr. llolman will be retained in charge of the committee on claims and accounts; and Mr. Fulton or Col. Burgess will go to the head of the streets and walks com mittee. The report of the city treasurer, which has been printed heretofore, and the quarterly report of City Clerk McFad den, are the only reports to be -considered. The annual report of Mr. McFad den will not be ready until the next reg ular meeting. It is belseved that the call for to night's meeting was made broad and general enough to include ' any minor miscellaneous business that may come up. The city dump ordinance may be considered, and Col. Burgess has some alleys he would like to have opened. Cholera Inereaalnfr at Lisbon. Lisbon, April 23. Thre are sixty-five fresh cases of cholera in this city today. Of the previous patients, 41 have been pronounced to be convalescent. E. II. Ilewins was buried at Valencia today. He was one of the tallest men in Shawnee county, being 6 feet 4 inches in height. The relatives had to go to every undertaking establishment in Topeka before they could get a cofSa to fit. NEWS.OFKAHSAS. Two Children Horribly Burned Near Independence. Sedgwick Block at Wichita Sold for $175,000. OTHER STATE NEWS. List of Delegates to Republican State Convention. Independence. April 23. The Re porter gives the following account of a terrible accident that happened the family of Frank Troupt, who lives about four miles from here. Mr. Troupt was away from the house and Mrs. Troupt was busy in the garden when she was horrified to see her two little ' girls, aged about 8 and 10 years, rush screaming from the house with their clothing in flames. She hurried to them and tore the burning garments from them as quickly as possible, but, it is feared, not soon enough to save their lives. Both children are frightfully burned, especially about the stomach and thighs, and it is very doubtful whether either will live. The children were in a room by themselves where there was a, fire place. The clothing of the younger child in some way caught fire, though the children say they were not near the fire at the time. The elder child made a heroic attempfr to save her little sister and her own clothing was soon ablaze. Mrs. Troupt had her hands considera bly burned, but her injuries are not serious.

The sentiment of the members of the Populist stato central committee in ses sion here today is somewhat divided a to the place of holding the state conven tion. Salina has heretofore been tho only candidate, but Topeka is this after noon in the lead. The impression seeun to be that either Sulina or Topeka will be named before the committee adjourns. The hotel facilities offer a good argu ment for Topeka. There is no doubt but that a larg-o convention will be held, the representa tion being based on the vote of Secretary of State Osborn.
