THE UNITED STATES fIUPUEUB COURT DECIDES THAT INDIAN TIUDEB HAVE NO PIIOPGETX BIGHTS IN THEIII TItIDAL RELATIONS. iofvtu/ IHavutch tn The Chicago TVfbime. Washington, Nov. 27.—Tbo Supreme Court of tho United States has just rendered a decision, tho ultimate result of which, it would seem, must hasten tbo solution of tbo troublesome problem of cho tribal relations of tbe Indians, and of tho question of Iboir recognition as citi zens of tbo United Stales. Tbo immediate re sults will bo to destroy somo very valuable pino timber contracts, and to render a considerable number of Indian uibca almost entirely desti tute. Tbo Supremo Court, Chief Justice Waite rendering tbo decision, baa decided that tuo Indian tribes of tins country DO NOT OWN TUB FEE to tbo lands within their respective reservations, and are only tenants of tho United States, to whom alono tho fee belongs. Tho decision also holds that the timber and minerals are a portion of tbo realty, and that the Indian tribes cannot soil tho ono nor louse tbo other. Tho caeo camo np from tho n sorvuliou of tho Onoida Indians, near Green Hay, in Wiyooiinin, whore one or two Indians bad disposed of a quantity of piuo logs. Tho ludiuu Agent, ON BEHALF 0? THE TIIIIIE, brought a suit for replevin to recover the loss, on the ground that tho lauds and tbo timber thereon belonged to tho Indians in their tribal relations. Tbo case, having passed through tho vaiiouu appellate courts, has just boon decided by tho United States Supreme Court. This do- Blsiou will seriously affect some ten or twelve of Iho most important Indian agencies. It will do- Erivo tho Indians of tlioso agencies of what has oen supposed to be thoir most important, pus lossions—tuo pine hinds. In several of tbo agencies tbo MAIN BODIICE OF THE SUPPORT of tho Indians is derived liooi the sale of logs. Liio reservations at Meuomlueo and Buy City, Wis., will bo seriously injured by this decision. Ko more pine timber can bo sold by the Indians on those rcsoivutious. Tho piuo hereafter sold must bo sold under tho authority of a special act of Congtces, and tho proceeds turned into tho United States Treasury. This will, of course, onucclfltho noted Bod Wing aud Wilder piuo con tracts in Wisconsin, inasmuch as tho basis of tiio solo is a nullity. Tho Indians upon ono reser vation in Knusas,who havo been receiving a largo royalty from some coal-lands, will ho DEPRIVED OF TiiEtU IIEVEMJB from that source. It is the general opinion of the Indian officials that tho result inevitably will bo that Congress will bo obliged to provide some moans whereby tho Indians cun become citizens aud acquire property rights, as this decision really strips tho Indians of thoir homos, aud DESTROYS THIS OLD FOUNDATION upon which tho tribal relations have been sup* Eosed to bo based. It is vary fortunate for tho tockbridgo Indian* that they have this summer received pay for tho pine already sold, as it is certain that tho Government will not attempt to recover tho money for the plno tout lias already been sold. It does follow, however, that all the contracts for tho ualo of pino timber by the In dians must bo auuuliod.

During tho winter 75 were in attendance, about one-half quite regularly; tho remainder cumo or not, aa fancy or convenience dictated. A marked chnngo In tho disposition of tho Indians toward tho school was observable after tho supervision of tho work. Tho interest sensibly diminished, and disor derly conduct increased; still, I wan ablo to keep toler able control, although sometimes with great dhliculiy, Tho classes have made steady progress In reading and have learned something uf tho usu of numbers. At least 100 have learned tho alphabet and numerals, and can read readily easy sentences in the First Dead er.

At leant fifty can print words and sentences rapidly and well. Some copy their lessons in script as rapidly and correctly as moat children of their ago In our common schools. Some twenty-five copy-books havo been written through, and in neatness of appear ance and progress madu will compare favorably with tho first eiforts of any class of children. Of course much of their writing is merely mechanical, Imitative; still they havo learned to understand a great deal, ami many lessons they cun translate entire, giving tho ideas correctly in their own language.

Dr. Miller—l wont particularly to attend tho annual mcollng of tho Health Association, hut also with tho intention of looking into tho sys tems for cleaning vaults and disposing of garb age and ashes. Boportor—Do you think the Health Associa tion can over accomplish anything ? Dr. Miller—lndeed I do. Nearly all tho sani tary officers of tho country meet once a year, and tho suggestions thrown out aud tho in formation imparted is of tho greatest impor tance. What ono learns there ho can p u t in practice in his own city in case of emergency, and a hint, when followed up and studied, often yields excellent results. We all appreciate the benefits to bo derived from an interchange of ideas, aud tbo interest taken in sanitary matters by tbo members of tbo Association bus spread information in togard to tbo science of hygiene wbicb probably would not havo been dissem inated through auy other channel. Boportor— Did you Jjco anything interesting during,your t:ip? A CLEANER METHOD. Dr. Miller —You—the mauuor m which “night soil " is removed from vaults in tho daytime without offouco. lloportor—How is it done ?

Itoporter—Does tuo pnran work effectively: that is, does it romovo all foreign matter? Dr. Miller —Vos. In one instance, whore the cart was 110 foot from tho privy, an army blanket and a pint champagne bottle wont through the hoso. Eoportcr—ls that system os expensive as the ouo la voguo hero ? LIKEWISE QUICKER AND CHEAPER. Dr. Miller—Ko. I saw a vault which contained two cubic yards of “soil" emptied iu twontv four minutoH. , lloportor—What is tho charge of removing a cubio yard ? Dr. Millor—'Tho price in Chicago at present is $3 j but, by lotting out tbo work by contract to one man, it could bo reduced to fcU.75 or sl. And thou it costs tho city £3OO or SOOO n year to clonn up tbo filth deposited in tho atreota by tbo scavengers at night. Thorn is a placo provided for dumping it,—tho West Park,—but tho men in charge of tho carts drive dowu a dark street, lift up tho tuil-boards, and lot tho stuff trail along. By that moans they got rid of choir load, and mako time, and can tnko two loads in a night, whon, perhaps, if they wont out to tho pork, they could only load once. lloportor—¥ou do not Boom to favor tbo aye tom boro?

Boportor—What did you loam ABOUT OARDAGIS AND ASHES ? Dr. Miller—l examined into l£io manner of gathering it. with thii view of comparing tho coat wiih our expenses for that purpoi-o. Reporter—What was tho result ? Dr. Miller—ln Baltimore it coats SIOO,OOO a yoar, tho city furnisluttg tho tonrao. It in utilized there; made into a compost and sold to the formers. In Boston, with city teams, It costs over $109,000, They also soli it to tho farmers. Tho work is done neater than in any other place I over visited. Instead of tho rattling-traps of wagons in use hero, they have nice ono-horoo vehicles, which aio washed out after every load, and go through tho streets as clean and aa savory as an oxpress wugou. THE COST HERE, Reporter—What does our Dcavonnor-work OOHt ? Br, Miller—Only sll9 a day. They seemed surprised in Boston when I told thorn the amount, and woro at n loss to account for tho work being dono so cheaply. Reporter—You forgot Brooklyn ?

Reporter—Do you intend making any recom mendation to tho Common Council with refor ouoo to tho night scavenger work ? Dr. Miller—l think I shall. Tho controct uvstoin, in my opinion, la by far tho cheapest. Tho work Is NOT I’ROrEKT.Y DONE NOW, and besides, ii is an expense to tho city to clean up after the scuvongoiH. If ono or two men did all the work, there would ho some ono who could ho hold responsible for tho ‘‘dirty work." Reporter—Will you suggest any plan ?

Possible Arrangement Between the Erie and Baltimore & Ohio RoadSi Fatal Consequences to the Sar atoga Agreement. Judge Tipton Sustains' tho Finding of iho Master in Chancery Concerning tho Gilman Road. Tho Matter to Clo to tho Supremo Court, THE ERIE AND BALTIMORE & OHIO. POSSIBLE DEATH-BLOW TO TUB SABATOUA AGIIEE- MENT. Tbo announcement that the Erie Railroad con templates making an arrangement with the Bal timore Ohio Railroad to transport Its fioight ttaius between Chicago and Mansfield, 0., a dis tance of about 270 miles, over tho Chicago Divis ion of tbo latter road, has caused quite a stir in railway didos. It is generally believed that, if tbo negotiations now ponding should bo success ful, tho Saratoga agreement would necessarily become a dead letter, as, with tbo Erie on ono side and tbo Baltimore A Ohio on tbo other, tbo Now York Central and Ponnsylvonla Railroads would have but little show if they adhered to tho terms of tbo agreement. There Is no longer any doubt that tbo combination will last but a fow days longer, and that competition will shortly bo as lively as over. Tbo freight rates prepared by tbo Commission ers have not yet gono Into effect, but it is an nounced that a raiso of 6 cents per hundred pounds on fourth class and flour will bomado after the Ist of next month. Had there been no op position to tbo agreement Ibis increase in freights would havo taken place on tho 15th mat., and tbo rates on first, second and third classes would havo been nearly doubled. Tho classifications prepared by the Commis sioners also moot with much opposition, it being claimed that tbo arrangements are made in such a way ns to prevent tho General Freight Agents from working their departments successfully, if rigidly carried out. A revision of tbo scale •on which cast-bound freight rates lire made wilt be attempted at a. meeting of tho Western Commissioners and tho Consulting Committee of tho General Freight Agents to bo hold at Indianapolis on the let. Tho Oonoral Managers will also hold a mooting on tho 2nd at Ciuumnati to hear tho report of tho Commissioners and Freight Agents. Tho arrangements between tho Erie and tho Baltimore & Ohio, which, it seems, will bo con cluded very soon, will undoubtedly stimulate tho Now York Control to finish Us four-track rood to Chicago, via tho Michigan Southern, as fast as possible. Tho project is said to bo feasible, and, if completed, would prove a succors, oh with extra fieight-tracks tho Now York Central could easily otund the competition of the Erie and Bal timore A Ohio Railroads.

SruiNOKiELD, 111., Nov. 27.—This afternoon the well-known cane of Kolloy and certain town ships in Dewitt County vs. tbo Gilman, Clinton A Springfield Railroad Company, that is, tbo orginal case in which tbo railroad was placed in the hands of a Receiver, was decided by Judge Tipton, in tho McLean Circuit Court, aud a de cree rendered for complainants. Tbo Court con firms tboroport of tbo Master in Chancery, that 14,000 shares of tbo stock of tbo Rail road Company now hold by the Mor gan Improvement Company, is not legal, bona-fide Block, and that it must bo canceled. This is tho vital point of tho decis ion, ami is tho question which has been stoutly fought on both sides, for ou it depeuds tho per manent control of the rood, Tho Court adverted at comuderablo length to tho circumstances un der which tho road was built, giving it as his opinion that if tho issuing of this stock to tho Morgan Improvement Company, who built tho road, had not been made, ihot tho road would nst have boon built, because parties who wero then building railroads would not enter upon such enterprises unless they could control tho Directorship of tho roads by holding a majority of its stock. Tho Court was also distinct and very particular in exonerating tho Directors of tho road from being guilty of any fraud in fact m tho issuing of this stock; but tho personal char acter of the Directors of the road, and their in tentions, could not bo considered when the issue of stock was fraudulent in law. Tho Court od hored to the original opinion given by him at tbo time tho Receiver was appointed, ns to tho legality of this stock. Ho further do ciocd Hint the cate shall bo ro-roferred to the Master for tho purpose of taking up tho ac count between tbo Railroad Company and tho Morgan Improvement Company, for the purpose of uhc n rtaiuing what tho building of tho road should have cost, too Master to tako testimony on that question, aud make report to tho Court. The Directors of tho road and the Morgan Im provement Company entered an appeal from Uto decision, and will take tho case to thu Suprcuio Com t, so that it can be hoard by that Court at its next term.
