Object to the Severalty Clause.
25.—The Sioux Iudian commission is
now ready for work, Judge Wright hav­
ing arrived by steamer from Bismarck.
The commission has two clerks and an
interpreter. They have two papers for
the Indians to sign, one favoring the re­
linquishment of their lands, and the
other against it. Each individual In­
dian will be called upon. There is great
excitement on the reservation and among
the five or six thousand now en
famped around the agency there are none
who favor the treaty. Some, however,
say they are willing to listen to what the
white chiefs have to say, and it is possi­
ble, but not at all probable, that the
commission may be able to change the
sentiment by explaining the details of
the measures. Tbe treaty takes from
the Indians about one-half of
the lands, or 11,000,000 acres, for
which they receive 50 cents
per acre. Besides this $1,000,000 is to be
expended for farm machinery, etc for
the Indians who are to take land in sev­
eralty and live like white men. This
feature is what Indians dislike. Some
say they Want to live like white men, but

engaged in conversation, when James
happened to see the initials "J. J. B." on
John's arm. "Those are my initials,"
he said "and mine," was the answer.
"Your name?" "John J. O'Brien."
"From where?" "Belfast, Ireland."
Mutual recognition and embraces im­
mediately followed and they both actually
cried for joy. It seems that John left
home twelve years ago, drifted out west­
ward and located here, while James left
home only a few months ago and has
been hunting his brother ever since. He
was taken home by John and introduced
to his wife and baby. They had a big
time over the event.

come and was told that a speech from
him would help heal the division between
Georgia Democrats. In the interests of
harmony he consented to come. Then
arose talk about inviting Congressman
McKinley, a Republican, to answer Car­
lisle. When Carlisle learned that he was
to be followed by a Republican, he
doubted the sincerity of the statement
that he was wanted by Georgia to heal
the division among the Democrats, and
believing the harmony business amounted
to nothing, Mr. Carlisle decided that
his proper place at this time was at
Washington, and there he decided to re­

proceedings of such a vast assembly and
