Supt. rol ler says that "the eleventh census must and shall be above suspi cion." This will be bad news for towns that arc in the habit of falsify ing their population, but the country generally will be glad to know that Mr. roller proposes to have tho naked truth in that respect.

A special dispatch to the Kansas City Times from Wabash, Ind- eaya : ' A big boycott is on in Warren, near this city. Many merchants aro pre paring lo leave the place and tbo War ix ii News suspended publication this week on account of the squeeze, while tJiu prebident of tho fair association has announced that no .exhibition will lc given this year owing to the dis turbed business relations.

Under seel ion 43 of sonata bill 605, to provide for a temporary govern incut for the territory of Oklahoma which wo publish below, tho Tcoria Indians, residing on their lands a few miles south of this city, arc made cili neiis of the United States. This bill becamo a law only a few days ago and has caused quite a commotion among tho Peorias and thoso who have been sclietninjr to secure leases on thcit lauds for mining purposes. The In dians are given absolute citizenslilj and thus their dealings with outside persons us well as amongst themselves will ho irrcailt simplified and entirely nntramiiieled bv the red tape which Uncle Sam so much Iiiuiiiircs in. Tho section of the bill mentioned also gives any,Indian residing "in the Indian territory a right to become a citizen bv aimlyinz to tha U. S. court, and this clause will doubtless cause an early breaking up of tho tribal rela tions among the Chcrokcca and the four other civilized tribes. Section 43 is as follows : That any member of any Indian tribe or nation residing in the Indian territory may apply to the United States court therein to become a citi zen of the United Slates, and such court shall have jurisdiction thereof and shall hear and determine such ap plication as provided in t lie statutes of the United Smtea; and tho Confeder ated Peoria Indians reading in tho Ojiapaw Indian agency, who have heretofore or who may hereafter ac cept their land in severalty under any of the allotment laws of the United States, shall he deemed to be and arc hereby declared to be citizens of the United Slates from and after the se lection of their allotments, and enti iliwl in nil iIia l-iirhirt. Drivilesres and benefits as such, and parents are here by declared from that time to have been and lo he tho legal guardians of their minor ehildien without process or court. Provided, That the Indians who become citizens of the United Stales under Ili3 provisions of this act do not forfeit or lose any rights or privileges l hey enjoy or aro entitled lo as members of the tribe or nation to which they belong. ABOUT THE ELEVEXTII CENSUS. No organization? in the United States have multiplied more rapidly in the past ten years than the sick ben til, funeral aid, death benefit and oth er kindred societies. As they urc generally confined to those who are in the humbler walks of Jife, the good i hey have done is incalculable, carry ing substantial aid lo thousands of stricken families and inspiring those who are fortunate enough in being members with a courage which mi" lit not exist in their hearts without them. The members of these organizations will be alad lo learn that Hon. Robert P. Porter, superintendent of the elev enth cenena, will endeavor to secure tho si at is! ics of I he noble work these associations aro doing, and it U safe to say that no other bra uch of the cen sus will be more interesting. The business of gathering the data has been placed in charge of Mr. Charles A. Jenney, special agent of the insurance division, 58 William street, New York City, and all associ ations throughout the United Stales, whether incorporated or private, should assist by sending to him the address of their principal officers. TO HELP 1'KOniBITIOX.

TLESTX or MONEY. In a recent issue of the New York World, replying to an inquiry from a party in Tombstone, Arizona, as to why money is so scarce thero and interest so high, we find the following concise and sensible statement of the real facts as they exist: Thero aro hundreds and thousands of poi sons in this city ready and will ing lo lend sums ranging from $1,000 to $100,000 at rates ranging from 3 to 5 per cent interest. Not one of them would lend vou a cent even if you should offer'them 20 percent interest. You have no security lo offer them such as they require. The t ale of in tniimw1a ii ikiii tint Kccurilv. and as thev do not desire a high rale of in terest they do requiro a high rate ot security. It is not the "scarcity of " iii vour section of tho country that causcs'tho high rate of interest. . . ... t..i It is the scarcity oi goon security uiai causes the high rate of interest.

You have stumbled into Ihe boa Hi.! lieoiile who talk about uiiiiiiilaiit inmii'V nnil scurce inoncv arc floundering. There is no such thing as abundant money, or scarce money, in Ihe sense of location. Money which may bo defined as the potentiality ot wealthcannot be abundant in New York and scarce in Biill'alo. Security may be abundant or scarce, money never. Money is jti-st as abundaut in tho wilds ot Arizona a it is in the wilds of Wall sleet. If every gold and silver coin, every greenback and every bank-note shoulit no destroyed to niilit. onlv 1 ncr cent of ihe currency of Ihe country, Ihe money of the coun try would disappear. Aim even mai would only disappear for an hour. Within sixty minutes its place would lie supplied "by the private money now being used for 90 per cent of till Iran sad ions and trade.

Take your securities to any bank or a banker and if he has not tho 'money'' in his pocket lie will .et it in thirty minutes by telegraph from New York at tho same rate of interest that vou would get hcie. "Original I'uckuges." Gen. C. R. Fisk of New Jersey, tho prohibition candidate for president in 1SS8, docs not regard the recent decis ion of the United Slates supreme court as being so fatal to the interests of prohibition asNeal Dow and other prominent prohibitionists look upon it as bcin?, says tho Kansas City Globe. Ho contends that the officials have on lv to be on ihe alert to discover when t'ho imported package is broken and liecoino mingled with the mass of common property in the state. Ac cording to tlm terms of the decision, when property becomes thus mingled it is thenceforth subject to state juris diction. Hut Senator Wilson of Iowa, an eminent lawyer, does not agree fully with General Disk.. Ho says: "iue practical effect of the decision does not lcud its entire force on laws of stales prohibiting the manufacture and sale within their limits of intoxicating liq uors, but it applies witli equal effect lo those states which, without resorting to such prohibition, havo nevertheless applied the regulative features of a li cense svstem. Indeed, it covers the entire field of effort to suppressor reg ulate the traffic in intoxicating liquors, whether by prohibition, local option, high license, or any other kind of li cense. The doclriue of ihe case is that' iuterstato.ut:btumerce cannot be interfered with by the states through any of the methods I have named o far, at least, as may affect'he introduc tion of intoxicants into a slate and the sale thcrecf in the Original packages to whomsoever may waut lo buy."
