Cut Wood on the Crow Creek Reserva
tion.
Sioux City Journal, 19th.
Capt. W. E. Dougherty, acting Indian
agent at Crow Creek, was in this city
yesterday, and stated to one of our busi
ness men the case as viewed from the
reservation standpoint. The wood chop
pers, the captain said, were mostly a bad
lot. Not long ago some of them run off
nineteen head of Maj. Bingham's cattle,
and no trace has sinoe been lound of
them. Their influence on the Indians
was bad every way. Besides lie had been
led to the belief from reports received
that there was enough wood cut along
the river for the use of the boats this sea
son, and so had ordered all the wood
choppers off the reservation. He had
subsequently learned that there was not
as much wood cut as reported, and would
allow some responsible men to cut more
so that the boats would not be inconve
nienced.
As the part of the great Sioux reserva
tion over which Capt. Dougherty has
charge extends from Big Bend to Pierre,
and covers that part of the river
where the wood is now the scarcest.,
the permission to cut timber will be a
food
thing for the boats. The captain is
oubtless right in his views of the bad
effects which the class of wood choppers
heretofore in that country have had on
the Indians. The plan proposed of al
lowing only responsible men to go on
the reservation to cut wood, and then
holding them responsible for the conduct
of their wood choppers, and the pay of
stumpage to the Indians, seems to be the
mos practical pay to dispose of this
vexed question.

"MR. HENRI!"
As an illustration of how the simple
are nsed( by politicians, the following
anecdote is interesting:
At a political meeting, the speakers
and audience were very much disturbed
bv a man who constantly called for Mr.
Henry. Whenever anew speaker came
on the stand, this man bawled out.
"Mr. Henry! Henry!Henry! I call for
Mr. Henry!"
After several-i^prruptions of this kind
at each speech, a young man ascended
to tha platform and was soon airing hit
jrioqaenbe in magnificent strle, when the
same man was heard bawling out at the
top of his voice:
"Mr. Henry! Henry! Henry! I oall for
Mr. Henry to make a speeoh!"
The chairman arose and remarked that
it would oblige the audienoe if the gen
tleman would refrain from further calling
for Mr. Henry, as that gentleman was
now speaking.
"Is that Mr. Henry?" said the disturb
er of the ncieeting. "That can't be Mr.
Henry! Why, that's the little fellow that
told me to holler."
VIRGINIA'S SPLIT.
The More They Try to Come Together the
Wider Grows the Breach.
Richmond, Sept. 16. It is generally
known that the plan of compromise
submitted last night by the regular con
servative committee to that of the readj
in
ters provides for the formation of a mixed
electoral ticket, to be made up of live of
the conservative electors and five of the
readjuster electors, the eleventh elector
to be named by the national democratic
committee or chosen by lot. The read
justee remained in session all night and
finally agreed upon the following reply:
They reject the plan proposed by the
conservative committee, not out of any
disposition to avoid the support 6f Han
cock and English, but out of the belief
that the proposed plan is not calculated
to accomplish the object sought. Yet, in
consideration of apprehension which ex
ist out side that a division of the party
may result in the loss to the democrats
of the vote of Virginia, which apprehen
sions are not shared in by the readjUBters
they propose that the' electoral ticket
question be settled by the people at the
primary eleotion to be held the ICth of
October, at which all persons shall be
allowed to vote who pledge themselves
to vote for Hancock and English. The
reply will be submitted to the conserva
tive committee this evening.
The conservative committee has been
in almost continuous secret session con
sidering the readjusters' proposition
providing for a primary election to set
tle the electoral ticket question. At 11:30
to-night they sent a communication to
the readjusters committee in which they
agreed to the primary election plan, but
bropose modification of the details so as
to provide that only white democratic
voters shall be allowed to vote at the
qrimary. This proposition, after a brief
consideration, was rejected by the read
justers, who decided to adherr to t'heir
original proposition which provides that
all registered voters, whether they have
capitation tax or not, who may pledge
themselves to support Hancock anil En
glish shall vote at the primary election.

their future was in a critical state. Mr.

nothing but what he considered to be
his duty. In the war, which was not be
gun for the emancipation of the slaves,
because, as all would recollect, at the first
proclamation of President Linooln,troops

were republican governors elected by the
negro votes, or else Hayes was not elects

the governors so elected over to the

years, no one thing has.been attempted
