Sensation at Springfield.
Springfield, Mo., Aug". 10.
Tho Confederate reunion here was
pronounced a success. About 700
veterans took part in tho parade.
General Cabell of Texns furnish
ed the sensation of tho day. He
denied that ho is an ex-Confederate
ami claims he is a Confederate
soldier now; has no sympathy with
the spirit which thanks God that
the Confederacy did not disrupt
the Uuiou. Ho said:
"Whenever I hear a man talk of
being glad that the South foiled,
that the Confederacy was not suc
cessful in disrupting the Union, f
am sure that there is a uigger iu
the woodpile somewhero.''

RESERVES CANNOT BE OPENED.
Congressional Action and Other Ne
gotiations fiust Come First.
Washington, Aug. 10. Little
interest was sh v(tx at the interior
department today in the report
from Lawton, Okla,, that unsuc
cessful homeseekers had started a
movement to have the government
open the three reservee set aside in
the Lawton land district. These
reserves are understood to mean
the 480,000 acres set aside as graz
ing lauds for the benefit of the In
dians as a part of the consideration
for their concession of the re'
maiuder of their lands; the forest
reserve of abont GO, 000 nores and
the small area comprised in the
Fort Sill military reservation. The
president has authority to vacate
the forest reserve or to abandon
the Fort bill reservation if the war
department should report it to he
no longer useful, but neither ac
tion is considered by the officials
as within the range of probability.
As to the grazing land, the title
there remains with the Indians and
opening up to settlement would re
quire not only congressional action,
but negotiations with the Indians
solicited. (Courteous treatment
