deputy commissioner of internal revenue, and
it looked as though there was going to be a col

the place, but not before an agreement had
been made, the IVnnsylvaiiians allege, by the
terms of which Sherman was bound to support
Frank Gilkeson, of Pennsylvania, for the solie
torship of the internal revenue bureau. Q;tay
was away for a few days, and when he returned

Gen. George Crook, U. S. A., Hon. Charles
Foster, of Fostoria, Ohio, and Hon. William
Warner, of Kansas City, Mo., have been ap
pointed by the President to be commissioners
to negotiate with the Sioux Indians for the pur
poses provided in the act of Congress approved
March 2. 18S9. The compensation is $8 per day
The Secretary of the Interior has appointed
Irvine Miller, of Chicago, secretary and dis
bursing officer of the commission.
The law un ler which the commissioner is
appointed authorizes them to negotiate with
the Sioux Indians occupying the great Sioux
Indian reservation in the middle southern por
tion of Dakota for a cession to the United
States of a portion of the reservation, the re
mainder to be divided into separate reservations.
Whatever agreement is made with the Indians
must be ratified by Congress. This is the
largest Indian reservation in the country, and
contains 21,.1'J3.12S acres. " There aro some
24.000 Indians located there. Under an act of
Congress of April 30. IMS. the Secretary ot' the
Interior was instructed to negotiate with these
Indians for the cession of their lands. A com
mission was uppointed consisting of Cr.pt. Pratt,
U.S.'A.. Rev. .Mr. Cleveland and Judge Wright.
Tliey visited the various tril es of the Sioux In
diaus but failed to get the assent of two thirds
of the Indians to an agreement to sell tbe lands
for 50 cents an aero. The Indians wanted ?71.25
and the negotiations failed.
This new commission will meet in this city on
the 6th of May, when they will receive their in

before leaving for the west.

CONTROLLER DURH AM Ol'T.
Ills Resignation Accepted, to Take
Effect ?t Once.
First C ontroller Durham severed his connec
nectiou with the Treasury department to-day.
He tendered his resignation on the change of ad
ministration. and it was accepted by Secretary
Windom to-day, to take effect at once. There
are several explanations for this action. The
one generally accepted by those supposed to be
acquainted with the inside facts is that the first
controller ha# taken a position on several offi
cial matters entirely at variance with the views
of the present administration.
THE IMMEDIATE CAUSE OF THE CHANOE
is due to a personal misunderstanding between
Attorney-General Miller and First Controller
Durham in regard to the accounts of Mr. John
j L Davenport as supervisor of elections in New
j lork. The latter recently presented vouchers
; Aggregating *3.200 for "cxtraordinarv e\
pe rises'' incurred during the lust presidential
j election. These were being examined by the
i first controller, and lie signified his intention of
; disallowing them. He h.nl several conferences
with the Attorney-General on the subject, which
resulted in an open rupture between the two
officials so much so that the first controller 011
J-iiday last ignored two requests front the At
toiney-General to call at his office. The Dav
enport accounts were then t:i!ien out of his
hands and turned over to the Attorney-General,
where they now are.
WHAT feECHETAKY WINDOM SAYS.
Secretary Windom sr.id this afternoon that
he had accepted .Mr. Dnrh.tin's resignation in
. th*j ordinary course of business, not because of
any fault with the hitter's official conduct, but
I because of several newspaper articles reflect

SHOT IX THE liEU.
An Affray which Resulted from a Sun
day Game of Crap.
Yesterday morning, about 1 o'clock, a col
ored hostler uameil Win. Green, who is em
ployed at Ivy City, was taken by the officers of
the first precinct to t.he Emergency hospital.
He was found on Pennsylvania avenue suffer
ing from a pistol-shot wound of the left leg.
The ball had entered the fleshy part of the leg
I below the knee and passed out near the ankle.
I Green, who evidently did not care to give the
police any information about the shooting, said
I tint he was crossing the Avenue near 4'.; street
i to see two men fighting; that one of them shot
nun and both men ran off. The police did not
uelieyo his story bcctnae the pistol shot wis j
not heard on the street by any on^.
HESULT or THE INVESTIGATION.
Police man Jordan, ol the sixth precinct, in
vestigated the case and arrested a negro named
( has. Scott as the man who did the shooting.
He claimed that the shooting was done in self
defense; that they were iu a house on Penn
sylvania avenue near 4street. where a num
ber of men were playing a game of ??crap;"'
that after losing ?w3 they had a dispute and he
shot Green in s> lf-defeuse.
The prisoner was taken to the Police Court
this morning and charged with assault and
batten- with intent to kill.
1'lie case was continued because Green was
not able to appear.
THE LAW AS TO THE TRACKS.
Messrs. Parker mid Dwyer Quote the
Commissioners Against Capt. Symons.
Messrs. Parker and Dwyer were on hand at
the District buildings this morning bright and
early. They had an answer to Capt. Symons'
report (printed in Saturday's Star), which
they submitted to the Commissioners. Thev
Referring to the report of Capt. Symons on
our various letters of complaints as to illegal
tracks in South Washington, we wish to call j
your serious attention, as well as that of the
j public, to the fact that we have asked nothing
but what is just and legal, and bear out our
statements by the following quotations from
your report to Congress, dated November 15,
lss7. Said report is signed by Messrs. Webb.
Wheatlev, and Ludlow. On page 57 you sav:
" 'In the case of the steam railways, the oc
cupancy of numerous streets and a multiplica
tion of grade crossings, alike dangerous to life
and limb, destructive of public property inter- j
ests of great value, inimical to private rights, I
mid opposed to public policy as in conflict with I
t.ie rights and necessities of a modern cpmmu- !
liity,'they'have in some respects put them
selves in direct antagonism thereto bv an un- :
lawful expansion of their holdings and the oc
cupancy of public space far bevoud their char
ter rigiits and privileges.' In speaking of the
Baltimore and Ohio railroad vou sav. ami your
remarks are applicable to the Baltimore "and
Potomac railroad company, that -people will
put themselves to much trouble, inconvenience, I
and expense to avoid peril to themselves and'
their families of crossing a steam railwav track i
in leaving or reaching their homes.' ' Again
! you say, -this brief statement of the facts in
the case make an exhibit of local conditions
which would not be tolerated in anv portion of
a modern community.'
?'In speaking of the Baltimore and Potomac
railroad company?page 5!l?you say: -It does
not follow, however, that, because the services
of a great private corporation are necessarv.
due regulation of that service ami the restric
tions of privileges to such as are needful thereto
and in conformity with the public requirements
should be omitted. * ? ? But die occupation
of public space to which it is not entitled, in
the crossings of streets not authorized by law
in the expansion and multiplication of side
tracks and switches, and in particular iu the
unlawful use and occupation of public streets
as freight and storage yards, to the obstruction
of public travel and the great detriment and
annoyance ol private rights, the road has ex
hibited that tendency toward the protection of
its own interests, Ac. May we be allowed to
ask why are the Commissioners, you. appointed
and paid a salary it not to exert vour authoritv
and retrain these violations of law, wbi-h you
state in writing is a fact.
"We also quote from the decision of the
L lilted States Supreme Court, delivered bv Mr.
Justice Miller April 20. iftoo. an opinion which
we and all thinking men will hold, is of more !
weight and consequence than the opinion of '
Capt. Symonft, who may be wtll versed iu engi
ueering. but cauuot be expected to be as learned '
in law as such a body qf men as compose the i
I lilted States Supreme Court. This opinion is
included iu the report of the Commissioners
above referred to. On page 109, the court savs:
it is a somewhat novel idea to sav that the
railroad company can use the streets as the
company likes or their business demands. It
also calls attention to the fact that Congress
has been very careful in directlv. speeifieially
and minutely saving how the tracks shall be
laid and upon what streets. Page 112 it savs
sec. 073: -No railroad shall be built under the
provisions of this charter until the route and
Uniiini of such road have been approved by
"Capt. Symons makes the remarkable state
ment that By virtue of certain acts the con
trol of streets was vested in the board of public
works and that the same power passed to the
present Commissioners.' Let us refer to page
II of the same Commissioners' report and see
what Mr. A. G. itiddle, the attorney for the
District of Columbia, says, in speaking of
steam railroads: -Congress created a board of
public works, to which it gave entire control of
the streets, for the purpose of keeDing them
in repair and for no other purpose; that the
purpose of repairing limits and controls the
grant.' A new servitude on a street is not a Re
pair. The board has no power to impose one
and as it could not do so itself it could not per
mit another; again. -The power to authorize
the use of a street by a railroad was not con
ferred on the board of public works nor their
successors, save in a special instance.'
"It is now simply a question?will yon re
spect the decision of the Supreme Court, your
district attorney's opinion, your own report, or
will you take in preference the opinion of one
who is not appointed to decide and Interpret
law for the District of Columbia. His argu
ment its to ug very poor, unsupported by law
and one which might be suitable for a railroad
lawyer who, failing to make a case, is crying
for mercy to save expense to his client, not bv
lawful means, bat by the power of might."

that the lands of Oklahoma w ill be in*u?cient
tor the people who will be here to claim it. As
a consequence. there have been organized
hands or companies, the members of ? hich are

the companies have agr. ed that if auv consider

they will league together Mi l take possession
of the Cherokee strip. Tvo-tiurds even of

determined men, desperate from failure
of cherished plans, driving the sto. a

the train. Arrivals yesterday numbered at
least o.OUO. Of this number, one-third went
south to reach the line of Oklahoma iu order
to be ready for the word "go." Others went
to PurceU. Uailroad officials are greatlv wor

TO FOt*XD A NEW FKISCO.
A par ty of capitalists of San Krancisoo gent
til. ir agent. George W. Perkins, to find a site
for the town they will build and call Frisco.
Perkins and his party stood upon the rear
platform after leaving PurceU, and just after
the Canadian river was crossed thev leaped off
and concealed themselves in the bu-hes. The
chances are that the situation of Frisco will be
near this bridge.
At Uuthrie there are in preparation and
agitation the same number and variety of town
site schemes, and on account of the' present
prominence of the place as a land office tlio
contest for possession will be inore intense

Last night there arrived a Oklahoma City n
queer looking crowd bearing deputy marshals'
papers, thus entitling them to t nter the coun
try. There were seven in all in the partv. One
man was seventy. He wore a fiue broa'dcloth
suit of clothes and carried a gold-lieaded cane.

made uu arrest, and it was stated that the ag

alighting from the train showed their coinm's
sions as deputy marshals, properly signed and
attested, and so the soldiers, much against
their will, W'ere compelled to permit them to
remain. Their evident intention is to
form some town site. It is thought that there
are over thirty deputies now in and about Ok
lahoma who. at noon, will turn in their resigna
tions and accept it all by themselves, each in
dividually, and turn private citizens. They
will theu bike claims.

Lybrook. of Patrick county, reports that
