He said that the only motive poverning The commission was the pros pective pr-)sperHy and happiness of the people of the ftulu islands, and that the people of the United Slates expected the treaty to be strictly observed.

Mild Winter Makes Shortage in Natural Supply Prices For Approaching Season. The mild weather of the past -winter has been unfortunate for ice dealers who depend upon a, harvest of the natural product. The same conditions have been correspondingly favorable to the ice makers of Kansas and western Mis souri. Inquiries recently made of people interested in these lines elicit the fact that there is a bis shortage of the crop of natural ice. It is said that forty thousand tons less than usual vvtre cut this seas en at (Ma la, and that there is a similar shortage of about iifty thousand tons in Kansas on the Missouii river betv.-e',.n St. Jcseph ami Kansas City. At Lawrence, in this state, where are located several large ice stcratse houses, it is understood ito ice whatever was harvested. At Topeka the estimate is that the ice companies put up about fifteen hundred toils- of thin natural ie. which is available for little use aside from the icing- of cars and such purposes. The warm srea existed all winter in Kansas and Nebraska as far north as Omaha. Those familiar with the conditions ani fiKtus say that no naturftl ice cm be de livered in Kansas City on r ack ffm the north duriTi.t; the coining seus-on for lets than ?4 pf r tor, not counting- ?hrinkat;-:1.

Attorney Evans of the Rock Island in Washington. Reports Favorably on the Re survey of Indian Lands. TERRITORY TO OPEN. Permission Asked For a Sew Line of Railroad. New Freight Depot to Be Built at Lawrence. Press dispatches from Washington, D. C, say that V. F. Evans, assistant at torney for the Rock Island, is conferring with the interior department regarding the opening of the Kiowa-Comanclie-Apache reservation. Several weeks ago Mr. Evans repre senting the Rock Island road signed a contract with the government by which the Rock Island people were to make the resurvey of the Indian lands about to be opened. A large number of sur veyors have been rushed into the terri tory and the work has been going on rapidly. From the pre ress made he feels war ranted in sayint, that the surveying work will be completed by the last of June, but in any event will be tlroshed before August 6. the time when the reservation is to be opened by proclamation. In spector Ntssler, who is following the surveyors in the work of alloting the lands to the Indians, is ah'.o making sat isfactory progress. Mr. Evans believes Mr. Nessier will be throuch with that pai-t of the woik as soon as the'survt y ing is dore. Mr. Nessier is following cluf-e bi. hind the surveyors with his corps of assistants, and the ladiat.s are given tli? lands they desire as rapidly as they car. be satisfied and indicate their choice. While in Washin.ton the department wiil corsu!J informally with Mr. Evans relative to the work of surveying '.lie Wkbita reservation. It is the d -sire of. the government to open the Wichita reservation to settlement at the same time the iviowa and Cormaiche and Apache reservation is opened. At the last session of congress SO.Ol'O was ap propriated for the work cf allotment and survt. and this added to the $10.K)i which remained of the fund previously appropriated, made it possible for the government to proceed with tre work as bt fore, fojn? qupstio.i has arisen as to whether the department has authority in law for lt-ttir.g a contract for the sur veying work, and the matter has been referred to the department of justice. In any vent it is believed Mr. Evans wiil do the work. Xf no other way can be found he ar-d his corps of surveyors will be employed by the day. with a definite und. i standing as to the amount to be done each clay. a;d with a view to the ultimate cost falling below the cmouc. appropriated. From the txpicssions of Mr. Evans to day it is possible the total cost of the work will not exceed ' J2C.G00. The road he represents is anxious a;:d admitted ly from a selfish standpoint to have the cc.ur.try opened to settlement, and the department has used this fact to get co-or.--! at ion in the worl:. much to the ad vantage of the government and affecting a nuiteiia! savins. Mr. Plva'-fi a f.-i filed with the depart mem maps cf d-. finite location for twenty-five ml!-: s of new road in Indian Ter ritory. fr-m Ar.auarka to Fort Sill, and hopes to have tarly approval of the loca tion, so that the road may proceed with oirsli uction as rapidly as possible. He beii .yes that ti.e e.per.irg of the Kiowa, Comanche and Apache and Wichita reservations will mean great things for the southwi st. and that the development of the new country will be phenom enal. NEW INTEKLOCKIKG PLANT. Safsty System For Santa Fe. and Rock Island. Wichita. March 2s. The Santa Fe and Rrek Islcnd. jointly, are lettic a con tract for the construction of an interlock ing plant at the point where the Rock Island crosses tiie mam line of the Santa Fe. The irferlocltiny r.r-paratus wiil ob viate all danper of a. collision, and at the same lime wili be a saving of about three or four minutes of time. At present all trains oacsne this point are compelled to cmo to full ston until given a clearing sicnai bv l In operator. t'eder the new sviem the Train that will arrive first at the lock will htve the light of way. and by a peculiar construction, of the track a' trnin cor.n'Tg in the opposite direction will i-e unille to obtain a clearance until the oth"r train has passed. A system of lights v i'l signal which of the two trains lias the right ol way, and if the engineer of the train not having the rit;ht of way fails p ob.y the same, tile result will be that his train will run eff the track, but It cannot cause any damage to the other. The interlocking plant will cost In the neighborhood of .1,. and work of con structing the same will begin in the near future. ANNUAL WATCH INSPECTION. "Work of Inspecting- G. C. fe S. F. Time-Pieces Completed. Annual watch inspection on the G., C. &. S. V. line :f the Santa Fe system has been completed. Four hundred and fifty seven watches were found in reliable con dition: thirty-three were turned over to inspectors fur repairs and thirty-seven were condemned. The condemned watches were timepieces that were not up to the standard in gracie. but were heretofore passed on account of their good timekeep ing; faihng to make a given rate this year, were ruled out of service. The Santa Fe s well known system of watch inspec tion gives every make or kind of watch a fair chance. No watches are passed on account of name on the plates or other feature of recommendation. Merit is th only point of recognition. A watch may be ornamented with jewels innumerable, fancy dial and handsome hands, but if it would not run within prescribed rules in three piositions. the jewels and other em beiiishments would not gain it an Intro duction into the Santa .Fe's roll of honor. The company established se-enteen jew els as minimum so far as jewels are con cerned, but the next and most important virtue is timekeeping that's the secret. It used to lie that employes would pur chase the most elaborate eases and dials, but utility is the motto now days, and the best movements and plain case with out frills or gewgaws arf the only points which appeal to pratie&d railroad men. The Santa Fe's time service has been a revelation to the watch world, and has been copied by little and big roads every where. The Boston & Maine railroad put it in vogue, and placed ll.AuO of Its employes under its provisions. The progress ot railroads includes a careful conduct of time necessities as well as special conveniences for passenger and freight traffic, and the -Santa Fe reaches out for the highest character In them all. AFTER THE BURLINGTON. Northern Pacific and Great Northern Want Control. New York, March 2S. Tiie Evenin? Post says: Burlington and Northern Pacific shares were etrong- and active on th revival of the reports that there would be a lease of the Burlington by the Northern, Pacific and Great Northern railways.. No official confirmation of these reports could be obtained today, and important stockholding interests in the Burlington denied having informa tion that any offer had been made for the Burlington railway. It may also be said that neither the Great Northern or the Northern Pacific have considered such a lease or terms for taking over the Burlington. ; . , A strong effort is underway, however to secure control of the Burlington and to turn It over to the Northern Pacific and the Great Northern. . These propos als originate with President J. J. Hill and the negotiations are entirely in his hands. Whether he will be successful in inducing the present management of the Burlington to accept his proposals re mains to be seen. It is believed that Mr. Hill is prepared to bid a high cash price f or Burlington, to lease it at a specified guaranteed rental or to exchange the Ftock for bondsj as the Lake Shore at d Michigan Central was -acquired by the New York Central. Reduction in Horse Kates. A reduction in the rate on horses from the state of Washington to points in th east has been announced by the Great Northern road. Since the outbreak of the Spanish-American war the Great North ern's traffic in horses has been exceed ingly large. Last season's traffic over th Great Northern was estimated at twenty Pve train loads of horses. The traffic not only proved profitable for the road, but for the horse breeders of central and easteru Washington, and they have gone into that line of stroek raising quite ex tensively. The -Great Northern is anxious to encournse them all it can. It is with that object in view- the reduction in rate has been det ided upon. According to the new tariff issued th - rate will le $142 fnt a i hirtv-foot car. $15'! for a thirty-three foot car and 171 for a thirty-six-foot car to St. P-Hil. To Chicago the rates will bft ibW. S1-2 end ?n resoectively. The old rates were JITl.uO. $lNi.9 and re spectively, to St. Paul, and S2ey, $214 and respertiv-elv. to Chicago. The new rates will en into effect April 1. The Northern I'aciiic will meet these rate and apply them from Montana. . To Absorb Mexican Roads. - Mexico City, March 2S. The air is full Of rumors of .ureal and sweeping changes in the railway situation and a division of railways of this country into two groups, one eoiitr.jMuig the Mexican National, which will be standard gauge, and the other taking over the Mexican Central.

Hold a Meeting to Look After Legis lative "Expenses." The sheriffs of Kansas had a meeting here yesterday to attend to business mat ters the business matters were in refer ence to making assessments for the ex- enses attached to the lobby which was lere during the session of the legislature. The lobby had to have its expenses and the sheriffs were only too willing to put up the amount providing the biennial election law will stick. The sheriffs in the stae got out mighty well in the last session: the parole of ficer was knocked out. and that meant that they would still get their fees for watching the prisoners who were parole from the Reform school and the peniten tiary, but, best of all, they gut the bien nial election bill through, and that meant that they wouid have an extended term of one year on the office which they now hold. Of course that did not affect the officers who were holding their first terms as much as it did the ones who are now serving the second term, but they were all affected to a certain extent, and that ex tent was enough to make them all favor the biennial election law. They were Interested In the biennial law so much that they talked of nothing else. -If Mr. Garver decides that the law Is unconstitutional the .sheriff's propose to show. Mr. Garver that they are from Mis souri. They will not willingly give up a term-of office without an effort, and they will stand pa.t until the case Is decided by the supreme court and that is where it will go if the men who think they can get the nomination for county office in their respective counties want to push it that far. As It stands now, the sheriffs are very well satisfied and they are willing to let the matter rest on the law as it was in tended. It would be impossible to meet a sheriff of Kansas who would not say that the biennial election law would not save $1125, OUT, a year to the state, and, although it may benefit -the sheriffs who are now in office, there is no question but the are right. . RUSSIANS MEET. Three : Thousand Express Sympath y With Oppressed Countrymen. New York, March 28. Fully 3.000 peo ple were crowded into the new Irving ball last night at a mass meeting of Russian sympathizers. The object of the meeting was to dis cuss the recent political demonstrations in St. Petersburg. Vladmir Stalechnik off presided at the meeting. He is a Russian nobleman, now an architect by profession, who was prominently con nected with the Nihilist movement in that country and who fled some years ago In order to save himself from being transported to Siberia. Fully one-third of the audience were women and they were enthusiastic in their applause as the men and all the addresses were en thusiastically received. The chairman in his opening remarks said that he wanted it understood that he and his colleagues are opposed to violence. "But what can we do whon our friends and relatives are thrown into Jail, driven into insanity or suicide; or drafted into the army, or hustled off to Siberia because we ask better conditions or higher wages?" he asked. "We .ire op posed to violence," he said, "but there are times when violence is necessary." The same people who assassinated Nicholas I sent letters of sympathy to this country and universally condemned the act when Garfield was killed by Gui teau, because the conditions in this coun try did not warrant such action. - The principal address of the evening was given in English by Abraham Cahan and his speech, by a vote, was adopted as the sentiment of the meeting. He said: "It is not the czar but czarism. It Is not the throne, but the system. This system is personified in those who make a cat's paw of Nicholas H for if there is one man in the empire who is not the master of Russia it is the czar. The system of which Nicholas is the figure head is embodied in Poboyodonostzeff. The Russian government is agovernment of the tenth century, while the European culture of today is the culture of the twentieth. "Russia is made up of people who have the same hopes and aspirations as those of other countries and the descrepancy between the mental and spiritual status of the people and the political regime is at the bottom of the situation. "But the Americen spirit of 177S Is be ing revived there. The educated classes are panting for breath and the working people want the right to struggle for the improvement of their lot. Hence the bond between the two." STROIIO AS A LIOI! BUT GEHTLE AS o Smith's Green Mountain Renovator in its medicinal energies is as strong as a lion, but as gentle as a lamb.
