Mr. ('lark is interested largely in and around Hillings and is known to many of uur j*ro lde: A meeting of the Aqueduct Commission ers held yesterday attracted to the others a large crowd, it being well known that con tracts for work amounting to over $12,000, UUO were to beawarded. Comptroller Loew a: tended lor the tirst time and was received cordially by Commissioners Dow.l, Bald win äii«1 Spencer, all of whom were deep) v absorbed In figures when lie arrived. The hour for the meeting was 3 p. m. At 3:lô Mayor Edson strolled in, removed his hat and overcoat and sat between l)owd and Baldwin. A few minutes later Commis tdoner Thompson entered. lie did not even nod to the Mayor. He took a seat at the opposite side of the table. When t!i Mayor called the Commissioners to order there was a full attendance, which is rather unusual. The reading of (lie minutes of the previous meeting was dispensed with, and then, on the-suggestion of Mayor Ed son, the Commissioners went into execu tive session. The interested contractors were ]>olitely requested to retire. The Commissioners then, in secret session wrangled about the bids and awards. Eucli had favorite contractors and as the lew «lid not require them to accept the lowest bids in any case they were anxious to have the patronage fairly divided. After a good «le: 1 of discussion an agreement was cutcr c«l into, and there being nothing more to <onceal, the doors were thrown ot>cn ami the public were invited to step in and wit ness the facility with which patronage to the amount of many millions of dollars could be distributed. The sections of the aqueduct were taken tip one by one and there was a roll-call on each, the vote in all cases being unanimous. The sccretaiy announced that the follow ing contracts had been awarded: Sec'ion > A. beginning at the north side of the Har lem river, to Heman Clark, of this city, $1.308,072: section B to Heman Clark. $1,413,768; section 9. beginning north of section It, to O'Brien & Clark of this city. $1,333,237: section 8 to U'Brien »fc Clark, f-l,i57.2S5; section 7 to O'Brien & Clark. $1,376,785; section 0 to O'Brien <fc Cla:k; $578.140; section 5. $726.975, section 4. $1.518,475: section 3, $1,398.050, and section 2 $1,653.655, to Crown, Howar 1 it Co., < f this city ami Chicago. These contracts provide for the cc.nsfr c tion of the Aqueduct from the north side ol Harlem Riyer to Croton Dm. Within ten days the ct litrrcfcrs must give bonds in double the amount of their contracts, and within 21 days from so doing the work must be commenced. The w irk must be completed within 33 months. In each instance, except sections 7 and 8 tit lie contracts were awarded to the lowest luhhrs. The lowest bidders f. ir sections 7 7' and 8 were Brown, Howard & Co. O'Brien Clark, the next lowest were given tlie . < onfrac's because they had the sections at «itlurend of the two mentioned. The • difference in their oontractswas aboiiJ^£l£Q . 000. The Commissioners pasKp-f a resolo incirasjpg'ihc Diiet Engineer's salary from $6,000 to $10.000. Mr. Clark, wdto receives the contracts for sections A and B. resides Ht No. 2066 Fifth tivei ue. He became f.moiM as a contract or in connection with the building of the Northern 1'acific Railroad. Iris said that be is very wealthy. Ho is interested in the • linn of O'Brien <fc Clark, who receive the contracts for sections 6. 7, 8 and 9. The members of that lirm reside in this city. The contractors Brown, Howard & Co., who are given sections 2, 3, 4 and 5, are from Chicago. The firm of Malone McGraw A Co. made J »wer bids on section 5 than a y of the others, bit' it was left out in thecoid. The «lifiere::ce in the amounts for each section j is due to the fact that on some sections the work is comparitivi-ly easy while on others the natural cottsre of streams lias to be di verted ami the aque«luct Luiit under the Led «.f those streams. ! j I a to few A Th'ef Run Dov/n. Friday evening last-Join T. Moore arriv ed in town with a thief whom he lorîgt <1 in jail. He it a young man fccarcely 20 yei.r.« old and gives his name as Dill Johnson.

He ad mits tlie pilrging if tlie cabins of Dave Folsom, Leu Lewis, James Morg:n and J. 1*. Hillis. taking guns, money, clothes and other articles. His last thefts were commit ted about a week ago at M«irgans, when a party set out in pursuit. Mr. Mocre stru« k Lis trail at Harston's cabin on Eik creek and followed it across the range to J. G. Picker ing's, the thermometer being down to 30 ilcgrecs below zero. Here lie rested over night and secured tlie services of James f.'hinnyworth, who proved a good one for Ihe work of pursuing. They followed the • rail around through the foot-hills and down into the valley and back into the mountains, night overtaking them at Geo. Ballard's, on Deep creek. Accompanied by Mr. Dullard they took the trail next morning ami over hauled the miscreant at P«»tts &, Harrison'» ranch, on Grayson creek. He at lirst de nied. but feeling tlie presence of a stalwart lyiml on his windpipe, confessed and brought forth some of the articles. When interrogated as to his motive he said: ' Meanness." As to what ought to be done with him, he said: 'T dont amount to much anyway, and I guess you'd better hang me." It is believed that tlie dozen or more thefts • ommitted during the past fall in tlieva'ley have been done bv him, Mr. M<iore <1? serves the thanks of the community for hunting him down and placing him in du rance vile.

A Washington despatch says the Senate c >mmiltee on Indian uff.iirs on January 6 will begin the investigation of leasing the lands in tlie Indian territory and on the Crow resetvaiion bv Indians to cuttle men and Indian chiefs will be subpoenaed to ap pear be ore the c mini it tee. One section of the revised statutes declare* ibe Indian trilies have no au:hority to lease the lauds. A sticce ding section allows herders the privilege of driving their cattle over reser vations upon obtaining the consent of the Indians and the government. Cattlemen construe the la'.ter sjeti in as me tiling they may lease lands, and under this cot struc tioi. nearly all the Crow reservation in Monlatyi and the Quapaw. Cheyenne, and Arapahoe reservations in the Indian terri tory have been leased for periods of five to ten years at from 2 to 12 cents per acre per annum. In the Cherokee strip in the Indian territory nine cultle men have ex clusive control of 6,000,009 at an annual rental of $10.000. The object of the investigation is to en able congress to take intelligent action on the *abject if additional legislation be deemed necessary. They Still Claim. The people of Miles City, especially a few who are anxious to control the business of forwarding the immense quantity of freight hilled each season to Northern Wyoming, are still strong in their belief that a feasible freight route can be established from that town to this section of Wyoming. Experi enced freighters, howiver,—ami they are always correct in matters of this kind—say that the only practicable freight route to Johnson county is from Custer station, Nevertheless, we hope that the business men and tax-payers of Miles City and vi cinity will i ttfli u road through to this county and learn a lesson thereby that hereafter they will not attempt to build a road into a country which is entirely be- ! yon<4 their reach.— [; ig Horn Sentinel. i 9 Hot Springs.
