The discussion of conditions In
the Indian country of the South
west by members of Congret-s
since the assembling of the house
laxt Monday ban centered largely
about the opening of tho Kiowa,
Comanche and Apache reserva
tion. Delegate 1-iyan as u
nouueed iu these dispatches sev
eral days ago, has a bill iu
routcmnlation which will provide
for dividing the reservation in
counties, naming the county seats
and appointing county officials
Every means of forwarding me
work ot survey and allotment baa
been discussed, and thera is gen
eral npproval of the conduct of
Int-pector Nesler, who had charge
of I he surv eying parties, aud of
Vhij. Rxndlett, the agent in charge
of i he Indians. . ' " ' ! ' '
So much confidence: is felt io
their eurnestness iu pusiiax the
work to completion that Delegate
Flynn says provision will be
made by law for them to make
I he allotments. This is taken "by
those who watch matters ' il Jhe
southwest as an indication on
sincere desire to have the country
opened up as soon as possible.
It has always been the custom
to have the alloting done by spec
ial alloling agents. This plaa
makes it possible to distribute
Home very good patronage. The
change proposed is complimen
tary to the inspector aud Indian
agent, as it indcates a great de
gree of confidence in them.
