Orthese soveral tirovininns, with becoming deference, I beg hereby to express the tlUapitrovitl of the Cherokee nation, and to submi'. an hutublo romonstrance against their passage Yet in essaying a task no deliuate nnd at the same time uo important to the welfare of the Cherokee people, I am keenly on sible of my wcaku'ess, or rather the inlinilo disadvantages I am re quited to encounter; not that there is no justice on the sidutifthe Chcrokees, not that there is no law to which they can appeal in justi fication of their protest against the pussngo of lhoe provisions of the bill, but becaune of the popular sentiment which has recently ac quired the force of the Gulf Stream, and insist that Indian goverment of Indian Territory must bo abol ished und a territorial goverment erected instond. The cluuso of the bill refened to would' invito endless litigation It would open the way for assail moot of the right- and reporo of the Five Civilized Tribes lunn all points of the compas. Any one disposed to do so could drug an Intiian tribe before a court, and, without any valid ground for cticli action, cause it immense trouble and expense. Within tho lust few years, owing to the anticipation of an early dis tribution of Indian lands nudIu dian moneys, thousands of people havejeunio forward claiming they are oT Indian blood, and are there fore entitled to t-lnire in partition of Indian lands and moneys. In the Cherokee nation alone there aro eight thousand such persons While many of these have hail claims tried without success by the proper tribunals of the country oth ers have simply moved into the country aud settl-'tl down without any trial at all for their rights. All these havo been designated as in truders; and their removal by the United States, aftor being 'paid their improvements ity the Uliero keo nation, was made a considera tion in the Into agreement to sell the Cherokee Strip lands to tiie government. All these, in case this bill should become it law. could, and doubtloss would, go to the ioiloral court at Muskogee and institute fciitt against the Cherokee nation. In fntit. the bill would have tho effect to turn tho Churo keo nation ovor into the hands of its cnomioB und the numerous at torneys that would tluubtless he come interested with them all this without just ground for such litigation. This clauso of the bill is in con llict with the spirit, if not the let ter of tho constitution of the United States. When tho Cherokoe na lion entered into it treaty of pro tection aud alliuuau with Hie United States in 1785 it placed itself under tho protection of that constitution and tiiis relation of tho Cherokoe nation lo the United States has not boen abol ished nor changed by any subse quent treaty, but has continued to the prosent day, having been reaffirmed in tho treaty of 186G. that tho Cherokee nation is a state, t lie supreme court lias uuolureii albeit not a state or tho Union nor a foreign state, yet that it is a state. ly tho eleventh nniondmoiit of constitution suits against n state nro prohibited. Then, jut so far as tho Cliookee nation poseossoB tho qualiUos of a state, it is exempt from suit under tho constitution of tho United States. Tlierejoro this olnuso of tho bill would not only encourage ondless litigation to tho groat vexation and expense, of tho Chorokoo nation, but it would also bo in contraven tion of tho constitution itself. Section eight nnd nine, with which tho protost deals nl length and which provldod for an appeal from the Indian to the U. S. courts, were eliminated by tho com mitteo.

Mr. Justice llrutrnr. nf tho United State nunrcmo court, who lnvlnltluff hln daughter In Toyekrt, Htateil in an Interview lant nlffht that In Iifo opinion the present txrilT bill would not pass. The failure to pan tho bill, Justice lire wcr thought, would moan that nothlno; Would bo done with the tariff during tho present ndminbitnitloa. Speaktnir of the cause which led up to the panic of 1893, Justice IlrcwcrJ Mia: IhMtnem had been dona on a apccul-itlrt) ftwta frr omc time, and I think that In the at tendant luldtlon thero would have boon financial titrable anyhow. However, the tariff quantum and the allrer agitation hud their ef feeta upon the eoantry nnd Intenalrled the sit uation. With due respect to Mr. Cleveland, I bellrvehe ahould hare called a apcclalaca slon of Conires In March Immedi ately after hi Inauguration. UU party had como Into power upou promlKea of tartlt reform and everyone waa ex pectant pf ehaiiges. Tbcne nho had any Idea of lneHtlni; money In new butlnes enter prtwR atMndoned tbe thought until the ques ttm of protection should be nettled In aome way. They cannot be blamed for that. If I had had any Idle money at that time I do not baltere I would have lnvetted It, either. The AiMJlcan people ndju.it themselves catlly to leaialatlve changes, and had the call been made then for a apeelal eettlon In all probability the democrat would have been able to pott a tariff ulll. - They would have felt their party ptedare more keenly than they do at preeent. Iteferrlnrr to tho strike, Justlco Brew er told: It will be n long time before the countrr re cover from the thock of tho strike. The In rendlartsm and looting In Chicago I rrgardai the work of tho thlove and thug who make ChleeKO, In some ropectt, tho wont city In thin coaatry. They are alwayM ready to take advanuge of nuch an opportunity an a treat atrlke, and, In my opinion, are reponlbIc for the greater part of the damajre wrought In that clu. I do not think the railroad men hod a hand In It to any great extent. Some people think that the atrlke will annihilate the organization, but I Wllere It will In the end make them atrongcr. Thev will, ee the neeeaalty of placing at their head xtrong.eool and clear-headed men, like Arthur of the locomotive engineer, and of dlaoardlng enthualatt of the Debt order. With aueh men at the bead they will be much more powerful and great trouble will be avoided. Asked In regard to tho truthfulness of tho slorlo about tho "usurpation" of power by tho federal courts, Judge llrewer ald: The court havo no more power than they bad under the Unit yean of the constitution In raoat repecu. Tho acts of 1M57 and 1875 enabled a man to uo hi creditor wherever found and made noma change, but In general the powers havo not been enlarged.

When the board met recently the warden filed his answer as follows: Specification No. 1 alleges that tho warden took moneys belonging to tho state with which he purchased hogs at different times aud refusing to mako nnv recounting themfnr. ."in .a iiusiTuruu uy iiiu nuiiuiuutii. that tho hogs were puronased a al leged and that tho board allowed the account. Tho slop from tho peniten tiary Mere sold under contract, but tho warden believed the stato could make moro money by feeding them to the hogs. SU months after date of their purchase the net profit to the stato from the sale of the hogs was $193.32, while the slop for tho same period would havo realized undcreontract 830. Specification 2 alleges that the- war den mado n settlement with xho Ar mour lncklng Co. of a claim for a re- .1-1. t t- ...... ...1 1... At. .... . ' bato of H cent per pound on 10 000 pounds of bacon. On a bnsl of H cent per pound, nnd that tho record doc not show any such settlement, tho war den having at no Cme made any state ment of money received under tho claim. In answer to this Warden Chaso make this statement: "Under a con tract with tho company the board pur chased 10,000 pounds of bacon. Upon its delivery I refused payment In full because tho bacon did not como up to the requirement. Tho board at Its next session authorized me to secure a rebato of u cent per pound. In tho event that 1 xuld not do this to secure the best p pslblo terms. After much corrcspon i nco, on file, I saw the Ar mour pco . in person and It was agreed to give the state credit for 825. Mr. Yar roll, a chief clerk, mado monthly set tlements, and it was his duty to sco that proper credit was given; that it was not done first came to my knowl edge through tho charge. I at onco mado an investigation and found that Armours had a credit to tha state on their books of S2S- Tho money was col lected on June 0, as the records will show, both in the office ot tho Armours and tho penitentiary. Specification n nlloges that the war den employed his daughter as "assist ant keeper contrary to the rules gov erning tho penitentiary. This the warden answers that the employment of his daughter, Miss Carry, as "assistant keeper" Is correct; that she 1 his cash accountant and performs exactly the same duty per formed by tho young ladles employed by his predecessors, Chase, Smith and Jones, in the same position. Specification 4 nllegcs that he al lowed certain officers to take their meals at the hospital kitchen and ob tain from tho penitentiary storo and butcher shop, farm nnd cow barn, articles for tho u&o ot their families? Warden Chase denies it and says the allegations are absolutely false in every particular. Specification 5 alleges that lie ap pointed to the position of assistant matron a woman of ill-repute, thereby causing public scandal, to the detri ment of tho discipline of tho peniten tiary. Warden Chase answers: "I appointed this woman upon recommendations coming from &ome of tho best people in the state, just as I appointed others on like recommendation. So far as I know, she is a reputable woman and remained In tho state's employ until she left on her own account Specification fl alleges usurpation qv authority at dlvors times and attempt ing to coerce tho chief clerk. This charge, tho warden answers, Is probably tho result of efforts made by myself to prevent Mr. Yarroll from as suming tho duties of warden us well as clerk. A. M. Ilunn, late mine superintend ent, .alleges In his eharjes :hat Urn warden appointed and keeps In posi tion and drawing tho pay of engineer his son, John Chusc Said John Chaso continually and in violation of all rules gives orders to officers in tha mines conflicting . with thoso given by tho superintendent, disobeying superin tendent's orders. The warden does not deny the em plbyment of his son John ns engineer. He says his son Is a competent engineer,, having been such for seven ycars and" has in his possession a recommendation from Ilunn himself asito efficiency and professional aliitlty. The' second and last specification laid under Ilnnn's chargo alleges that at divers times tho warden placed in competent and inexperienced men In charge of the workings of said mines that required experts, thereby andan gering life and valuable property, etc In answer to this allegation. Warden Chaso says; "Ilupn was employed by me after Mr. Lamm resigned. It wasn't long when I discovered that ef forts were being made by him to sccuro the closing down of the mine to assist the men in tho striko then going on in Missouri and somo portions of tho state, alleging as an excuse the mlnp to be unsafe." Tho warden says Ilunn made no secret of his relation to the strike and that "Ilunn knew ho was lying about the condition o' the mlno" as his predecessor found no such causes for complaint. Finally tho warden asks for the fullest investigation of thq charge! against htm. Thrve lllner Killed. OAi.v.vAt III, July 33.

We propose that the Pullman company snail be brought to Justice and In a way that shall not necessitate a striko with Its attendant Ills. We have fslth In the American people: thev uphold Justice; they love fair play. And new, in tbe name of Justice and fair play, we appeal to the great American public, to every good roan and every good woman, not to ride tit a A pullmau car until the Pullman company aoes Justlco to It employe. Let the car run ab solutely empty. No friend ot labor, no friend of humanity will occupy a seat or u berth In a Pullman car. Let thi policy be Inaugurated and we will then see how long tho railway companies will be bound by their contract, as they have Inducod the public to believe, to haul Pullman car. We propose to continue this fight against the Pullman company through good and evil report and without regard to consequences until Jus tice shall be done. There w'.u be no surrender. We will use every available and lawful mean to press the contest. It Is requested that all paper throughout the land favorable to labor, to Justice to humanity, copy this statement In full and keep It standing a long a possible.

It ap pears from his report that this seourg is one of tho most fearful oa reeord, having Its greatest hold at the port of q Hong Kong. The dincaso broke 0tt hi fy Canton lato last February. Dorlttar ' March and April it steadily lucre! until li assumed gigantic projaor tlons. According to tho letter of Dr. Eldrldge, the. eastern authnrMes treated the disease with their ordinary indifference. Several casco appear! in Hong Kong during tho first days of May, but not until tho 10th ot, tha month was airy official action ti ).. It has steadily Increased In that ptooa until tho mortality has reached 100 . day deipito tho exodus of 100,000 Chi nese and many Europeans.

"If I may presume to advise," says pr. Eldrldge, "I would say that the most stringent measures may need to be taken to protect tho United States, particularly as regards certain classes of goods from China likely to convey Infection, rags, old cotton, etc., and also such manufactured articles as are mado in the native workshops, with perhaps a caso of plague dying in thn same room; such things aro straw mat ting, embroideries, and every sort I toxtllo fa Vie."

Some of the applicants aro members of the Knights of Labor, and this Is re garded as significant, because ot tho fact that after the railroad riots in 1390 tho district assemblies of that or der passed resolutions requesting their members to refrain from enlisting in thenational guard, and of those already enlisted it was asked that they should retire at the expiration ot their terms, of enlistment, or carljer, If possible.
