INDIANS TO WASHINGTON.
Poncas, Otoes and Mlssourls to See the Great Father. Guthrie, O. T., Jan. IS. John Jen son, United States agent nt White En glo for the I'oncn, Otoe nnil Missouri Iiullnns, hns received permission to take the delegation of Otoes and Pen can to Washington, where they will discuss with William Jones, cominls Eloner of the Imltan department, Ills liroposcil new Indian policies. Mr. Jensen Is In accord with tho plaiiH of Mr. Jones, and the Indiana In his chnrRo will probably be tlie first to consent to a change. lie said today "I am in favor of giving eiuh nu-m ber of the tribe his share of trlbnl property, and requiring each Indian, whorevcr possible, to llvo and main tuln himself in tho same mnnncr as any other citizen of tho United Stntoa. Tho Oloes, for instance, have three quartor million dollars In cash In th3 troasuty at Washington, anil tribal lands valued at $300,000. Give each Iutllan his share. The young men arc capable of supporting thomselves If com polled to work, and If they snunn dor tholr money it would bo tholr own fault. It would not bo wlao to give to the other Indian's tin money tu which they are entitled. They are In capable of managing their affairs and would be robbed of everything In a hhort tlmo, after which thoy would be penniless vagabonds. All funds belong ing to such Indians would be controll ed by tho government and annuities paid as thoy are now. "Tho act of congress Imposing these now conditions should not bo compul sory with Urn tribes, but so lramed Hint upon a majority petition any tribe could take advantage of the new "liollcy. The older Indians In my charge are opiOBed to any change, but the young men favor it. and tht-re nre enough young women to control.' Mr. Jensen has been lotii? an advo cate of making the Indian an Inde pendent rillsen. Ills recommendations on the subject wrrr plenslnn to Mr. Jones who laid them b -fore Secretary Hitchcock.

When this point wns reached tho officer said ho would havo t- ao back to Main street and ring up his pntrol box. Suddarth walked on, and when just opposlto tho nlley between tho Nn- Varro "block and tho Kansas City club loeoived a blow from a man who sprang from tho dark. Suddarth fell, but did not loso consclouflncKs. In an swer to his cries n Piukorton watch man in Wynudotto strqet responded. (48 nleo did tho pollcoman who had left him only a fow momonts before.

A SERIOUS BLUNDER. Government Troops of Colombia Fight Their Own Men Through Mistake. Tho (tows of a serious mistake In which n forco of government troops fought another body of government soldiers, thinking that, it was com posed of Colombian revolutionists, has been brought to Colon, Colombia, by tho Colombian warship Goneral Pin ozn, cables tho correspondent of tho Herald at that place.

One of these met tho icbels Mid nfter4a sharpo engagement the Insurgents retreated. The other body of government troops then enmo up, having heard tho firing, and the mistake followed.

It Is wild that the great ape of Slam Is in great recuent among tho Siamese merchants as cashiers in their count ing houses. Vast nuantltles of base coins nre known to bo In circulation In Slam, and no living human can dis criminate between tho good and bad colnnge with ns much nccuraey as these apes. These monkey cnshlcM possess tho faculty of distinguishing tho rude Slnmeso counterfeits In such nn extraordinary degreo that no train ed bnuker can" compete with them in lliclr unique avocation. In plying his trado tho npe cashier meditatively puts ench coin presented to him in his mouth nnd tests It with grnvc deliberation. From two to five seconds is nil the time this Intelligent nntmnl requires In making up his de cision. If the coin Is nil right, It Is cnrefully deposited in the proper reeop' tilde; If base, it Is thrown violently to tho floor, while tho coin tester makes known his displeasure at being pre sented with tho counterfeit by giving vent to much nngry chatter. Well l'rmrrvcd. The mnn who cssnyn to give n lecture or talk In tho "slums" must have his wits well in hand. He may encounter apathy, but he Is sure also to find an embarrassing readiness of tongue. An earnest young mnn from a college settlement was addressing a company of fathers nnd mothers on the subject of "Christmas In the Home," telling them of ways In which the dny might bo made bright although money was scarce. He had vhdted many houses In many cities and wns well Informed "I'm not tnlklug nbout what other people havo told me," he said genially, "It's what I know from .ny personal experience. I hnvo seen over n hun dred Christmas celebrations nnd" "Mnn, dear," came in n rich Irish American voice from the rear of fiu room, "It's wonderfully preserved yo nro for a man that old!"
