SIOUX SEEKING REPARATION , Alleged Crookedness by an Insurance Agent in Dealing With tbo Indians. THE SANTEES AND CIVILIZATION. Xho Roily of n Council muffs Mnn Found in the Ice Who Il np- vc3rc l Two Months' Oilier News. An Indian's MlflHlon In Otnnlin. John Houillard is an Indian a S.intco Sioux who lias been stopping in Omalm for several days past. And yet hundreds of people who have mot him in the hotels nnd on the streets have never suspected Hint ho is a descendant of the wild sons of the forest. Dressed in a fashionably cut suit of black , wearing a soft felt Imt , with a black tie encircling a collar of im maculate whiteness , lie looks more like a Caucasian whose skin has been browned by the influences of i tropical sun than the red man which ho is. When called upon at ids hotel by n representative of tlio Uii : : yesterday , ho arose and , extend ing Ills hand , greeted tlio reporter pleas antly ami in multlcs5) ) Kngllsli. Mr. Houillard't ) visit to Omaha is to right a wrong which lie says lias been done to his people by tin insurance agent Dinned It. K. ioiing. Young lias been representing tlio Nebraska A : Iowa and Homo insurance companies at the Suntco agency and engaged Mr. Houillard toaet as interpreter for him. Ilu succeeded in doing rx big business , a largo number of the Indians making application to have their properly insured. Young wrote all tlio applications himself and Houillard simply interpreted them to tlio Indians. All went all right until the policies were returned and the premiums demanded. Then , Mr. Houillard says , tlio Indians began to complain that they wcro charged moro than Young had stipulated. Homl- lard nmdc examination of tlio policies and found that they had boon raised , other property having been inserted a.s nmircd which had not been placed in the application for insurance. Tlio Indians wcro very indignant , and some of them accused lloiiilltml of being connected with the scheme , lie therefore came to Omaha immediately to place the matter in the hands of tlio Nebraska & Iowi : company and have justice done. As Superintendent - porintondent Campbell is absent from the city Honillanl is awaiting his return , which will bo in u day or two. lie de nounces the agent , Young , as a rascal , but is confident tlio company will act fairly by the Indians. INDIAN CIVILIZATION. Mr. Houillard nlso gave the Bci : man some facts about tlio Santee Sioux which may prove of interest. Their agency is in Knox county , this state , and on the reservation , which is twelve miles t.q are , there are about 800 Indians , including women and children. Nearly all ot them are engaged in farming and are highly civilized. Education , religion and peace ful pursuits have had a marked efleet on them , and the desire to return to a frcco life on the plains hunting and liahing has been almost obliterated. The treaty made with them which allows them to take up homesteads which tire free from taxation for tlio first twonty-fivo years of their occupancy is proving highly satisfactory. Tlioro are a few Indians , however , who are dissatisfied with their lifo on tlio res ervation and. wish to return to their old lifo. These malcontents are twenty-six In number. They are continually agitat ing the question "of taking some action wnich will allow them the right to sell their lands and , going to wards the .setting sun , select spine now spot where they can live by hunting and fishing. The bal ance of the tribe , however , oppose this faction continually , and. their agitation amounts to nothing. At the agency there are two churches , Presbyterian andEpiscopalian , which are attended by tlio Indians , whore native - tivo ministers discour&o eacli Sun day. Nearly the entire agency attends at cither one church or the other each Sabbath. The twenty- six malcontents already mentioned , how ever , are never at the places of worship , but each Sunday morning gatiier to gether and discuss methods which may release them from the bondage of civil isation. This meeting is known as the COUNCIL OV TWKNTl'-SIX , and the bucks who compose it are the only ones in the tribe who do not profess Christianity. Nearly one-half of the Indians can talk English and the children are rapidly being educated. At the government school at the agency there are sovmity- live children in attendance. There they are taught English and tlio common branches as well as farming and other industries. The children are intelligent , learn quickly ami retain tlio knowledge. Tlio people have also learned to bo neat , and the houses , of which there are eighty , are models in their way. Contracts have been let for the erection of thirty additional dwellings the coining season and will bo occupied by their Indian owners before next winter. TIIKIlt ( jOVlHlN'MnNT. The agent in charge of the resorvalion is Charley Hills , who lias held the posi tion for twelve years. Mr. Houillard nays ho is very popular with the Indians and an excellent olllcor. The reservation is divided into four districts , from each of which two councllmon are elected , who servo as rep resentatives of the tribe. At their meetings - ings they ( Iteuuss matters pertaining to the welfare of the people , ami if any measure of importance arises which they consider would bo beneficial they pro- hunt the matter to the agent , who for wards their request on to Washington. There are also three Indian judges before whom criminals are tried for potty of fenses and minor disputes tled. The police consists of eight Indians , two from cnoh district , with Captain John Wluto as chief olllcor. These servo la the capacity of constables and perform their duties well. In fact , Mr. Kouillard declared , tlm Indiiins at the Santee iijronoy nro perfectly satisfied with their government and wcro anxious to increase their opportunities to hecomu civilized. FOUND IN Til 13 HIVRIl. A Hotly Kccovorcd After Holnn Under tlio Ice Two MontliH. Whllo u party of boys were fishing through the ice opposite tlio disulloryyos- 'torday afternoon tlioy discovered the body of n man partly frozen in i\ mass of filusli Bomo distance out in the river , They immediately reported the matter to Coroner Druxcl , who visited the pltico and had the body removed to tlio uvor bank. Long before the ice could bo cut away sutllciontly to roioaso the body a crowd had gathered nnd tlio remains were recognized as those of Christian Meyer , who fell through tlio Ice December 2'J while attempting to cross tlio rivor. At the time of tlio accident il was not known who the man was , as tlio only porbon who saw him break throtiiih , tlio ice was the bridge watchman. Ho noticed n man walking on tiio ice near the west shore of tlio river , when sud denly the ice save way and the man dis appeared , Tiio watchman immediately made tm cfl'ort at rescue , but without avail. The only trace to the identity of the man at tlio time wa ? his cap which was picked up on tlio ice. but toveral days after Mr. Tlieodoro licckinan , of Council Blufl's , became convinced that it was his fathor-in-law , OhrUtlan Meyer , , who had disappeared that day. Tiiero was uotliing , however , to provo conclu- sively that it was Meyer until the body was discovered yesterday. As popn as the body had bcon removed to the river bank Coroner Drexcl Impan- nclcd a jury and held an inquest , which resulted in finding that Meyer came to his death by accidental drowning. The body was tlion taken to the undertaking establishment , of Drexcl A : Maul , and Mr. Hccktnan , son-in-law of the deceased , notified. Mnyor's body was found about 200 yards from the place whore ho hail fallen through the ice two months before. Tlio features wcro almost perfect , although distorted and black. In one hand Tie held a paper written in Gorman which ho evidently was reading when tiio ice gave way. A large cavalry revolver which ho in tended to have repaired while in Omaha , was found In his pocket wrapped In n cotton handkerchief. No other articles wcro found on his person. Christian Meyer was born In ( iRrmnny. was In his GOth year , and had for come years been a farmer in I'ottawatlamio oountv , Iowa. Ho leaves two sons. Wil liam Meyer , a tailor employed by James Fraincy in Council Uliill'i , tlio other Charles Meyer , a boss carpenter in Glen- wood , lown , and one ( laughter , Mrs. licckinan , wife of Theodora I5ccknmn , of tlio leather linn of Dcckmati & Co. , Coun cil IlhifTa. Holntives will take the body in charge this morning and remove them to the homo of iiis son-in-law. Trailo Ilex-low. The past week has been a period of RO neral activity In niot lines ot business. The job- hois generally icport an incie.ised volume oC trade over tlio preceding week , with cvciy Indication of continued activity. Collections arc easier , ami country merchants generally repoit bettor tiade , as the farmers are dis posing of their grain and live stock which makes money moio plenty. Thopioiliicomaikets have been foiily ac tive and prices llrm on most lines. ICggs , which were only quoted at 10@17c the week heroic , sold as high as iiOc last week , thouch the greater bulk of sales were iniitlo atlhftg We. The above prices weio for choice , ftcsh slock. Held stock went at lower pi Ices , while limed or pickled eggs wete not wanted and were slow sale at any piicc. Now that tresh laid eges aio coming in again. It will bis no easy matter to dispose of any stock that is not stiictly fresh. The liotlom has fallen completely out of the butter mailtet. Farmers uC the near vicinity aio supplying the letail dealers to a ceitain extent and sales ot commission moil ave \cry light. The icceipts nro light. Tlicio has been no material chnngo In the poultry market the past week , puces langlng about steady. The receipts liavo not lieeu largo but about equal to the demand. Itecelptsot game have been quite light. Theie is quite a de mand lor quail and praiilo chickens and a few are sold In spite of tlio fuel that thev are out of season. Theio Is a liberal supply of lalibits , and though the demand is not very stiong all the irceipts thus farhnvo sold fallly well. 1'otatoes , apples , onions , etc. , have not commenced moving to any extent thus far , as shipments can not bo made with nnv great tle/reo of safely. The cattle intukct lias iiotbecn very active the past week , tl'o icceipts have averaged light and fewa.o \ \ been changing hands. Tlie demand for anything oilier than choice stock is very limited. Tlie stock that has changed hands has as a rule brought 1:001 ! pi lee. " . In fact prices have la Hired as high and In many cases even higher In pioimitlon than eastern mailcets. Theio has been far inoic activity in the hog maiket. While icceipts have been liberal and fully up to what was expected , they have fallen shoit ol supplying the demand. Tlio packing houses have not been able to obtain n full supplv. The competition among the Imvei.s has been stiong and prices have been foiccd up as high as they would possibly stand , bhecp do not sell well unless they are choice and hp.avy. The prospects for the coming week are good In most lines of business , and general activity is anticipated In the live stock ami produce inailcets , as well as in the wholesale trade.

Hi % discouro was characteristic of tlio man , rough but earnest and powerful. Ho made many good points , and succeeded in thoroughly reaching his hearers. Moro than seventy stood up for prayers and 100 inquirers re mained tit the after meeting. About twenty-three professed religion.

Hcportcr Visits the Works. No institution of Omaha's rapidly in- crcnsing nmnufncluro holds n position of more Importance in its line than the Carter - tor White Lead works. This company opened business on January 1st as suc cessor to tlio Omalm White Lead com pany and occupies the plant of its pro- dcccs'or near the Twentieth street cross ing of the Union Pacific tracks. The of ficers of the company are Levi Carter , president , II. W. Yatcs , vice president and treasurer , and S. U. llaj-dcn , sec retary. Now energies are being applied to tlio concern , and the prosperity of former times is redoubled. Six traveling rep resentatives cover the entire territory west of the Mississippi , anil orders luivo been pouring in so greatly beyond the the capacity of the works that one of tlm greatest of tlio company's present labors is to increase facilities for swelling production. Many imnrovc- ments nnd now machinery nave already been put in , and further items of enlarge ment und extension are now underway. The goods of tlio company are already in the liandsof the jobbers anil leading drug gists of all western cities , but the inten tion is to secure tlio universal conlidenco of consumers and control the markets naturally trihntary to Omaha , and her manufactories. Tiio maxim of the com pany is , "Liberal advertising , sterling goods and the encouragement of homo industries" To this cud a perfect article 11 being turned out , and the trademark of "Purity" is being founded on unas sailable Around. Under tlio name of the Carter White Lead company's Diamond brand of pure while load , strongest guar antee of purity is given. A reporter for tlio HUB had the pleas ure yoitorday of a visit to tlio works , and maito'a tour of tlio plant under the kindly and intelligent guidance of 0110 of tlio ollicials. Tlioi works comprise a number of large buildings , situated near the main track of the railway , and accommodated still further in the matter of transporta tion facilities by a side track which en ters the yards. The buildings are large and imposing , and the smoke and steam and hum of trallic , maintained night and day , impress even the casual witness with tlio activity of labors prosecuted within the walls. Wliito lead is not only a valu able commodity , but in these times is an absolute necessity in the arts and tr.tdcs. The manufacture is a great and important matter of commerce , and Omaha should feel pride in possess ing an institution lor its production in .such cxlciibivo nnd perfect form. Tlio process is interesting and simple withal if ono cxcepts the wonders of chemical phenomena of which men know and take advantage , but cannot explain. Tlio tlioughttul mind ever finds pleasure in following the process by which tlio crude materials are converted into articles of trade , and few are moro interesting than the manufacture of white lead. Tlio Carter company lias u patented process of its own which en tails no waste and largely ex pedites tlio production. Starting with rough pig lead , the same as is used in other branches of commerce the won derful work begins. Tlio metal is melted in an iron vessel in the bottom of winch a , small perforation permits the How of a tiny molten .stream. As the melted lead falls it is struck by a violent jet of steam and blown in a metallic spray into a sealed chamber. This is called tlio atomi/.ing process by which tlio lead is reduced to the finest particles. When filled , the chamber , or blow-room as it is called , is opened and tlio atomized lead , now lost to its natural lustre and re sembling dried and powdered clay , is re moved. It is then placed in largo cylin- dical vats , forty in number , through which tlio carbonic gas from a coke furnace is forced by fans. The vats rotate slowly , thus exposing ovcry particle of the lead , and upon tins a spray of water and acetic acid is slowly played. Chemical action follows , and us a fortnight pusses the metal is converted into acetate or sugar of lead. Then the carbonic gas performs its func tions , and in a few days following , once moro obeying tiio mysterious laws of chemistry , the nature of tlio substance is changed and carbonate of load is pro duced , This is the form in which it is desired , anil when inspection sliows that tlio action has boon perfect , the leadnow a white , chalky substance , is taken out. The lingering traces of acetic acid must bo removed , and Jong and repeated baths in water follows. Tlie lead is ground as in a burr &tono mill and washed again and again until tlio last defcctivo trace is gone , and tlio water is then evaporated in a steam heated drying room. Once moro the lead appears as powdered chalk and is ready lor the last stage , where niixo.t with linseed oil it is ground and rcarouml until the proportion and consistency is attained to the minutest exactitude. It is then commercial wliito load , and when packed in kegs ot varying capacity and labeled it is ready for tlio market. The old process by which tlio carbon ate was obtained by burying the lead in pots of corrosive acid under mounds of heat-producing tan-bark or manure ia evidently less advantageous than the above described. The old fanhion required - quired weeks of waiting and incurred the risk of having to bo repeated if the pits wore opened prematurely as well as entailing a heavy waste. The purity of tlio article turned out by tlio Carter pro cess is assured absolutely , and is practi cally supported by a strong guarantee. The company is making a now do- paitnro in tlio liquid paint trade by put ting on tlio market a strictly pure wliito lead and zinc paint , which is also guar anteed. This department of the works is as interesting as the load buildings. The body of the paint is made from a proportionate ) misiuru of while load and wliito iiihio ground in linseed oil. Tlio color is imparted with mineral and veg etable pigments as may bo required. Those are worked up together and the va rious hues sought for attained perfectly nn- dor tlio quick eye of the experienced fore man , hvcry desirable color from these so von prismatic.s to the shades and tints of modern invention are mado. llluo , yellow , green , red , violet , indigo , sienna , raw and burnt , raw and burnt umber , maroon , olive , brown , gray and every hue ik'hirablo , arc turned out in the very best and purest character for practical usages. ' .Iho company in this department has a newly patented can sealer which seems almo&t intelligent in its operations. The old system of holdering i.s being aban doned , and the perfected method is now applied to all the new goods A can witli a lid fitting over the body is employed , and the machine by rapid revolutions rims and doubles the edges of the lid and can together in such a manner so secure that the } * cannot bo separated , and leak age or evaporation is impossible. It is a valuably invention , and promises to rovolutioni/.o tiio present tnelaod of canning in all ( rallies of that character. Further details of the great institution would bo of interest , but tiio leading points have been touched upon and thu full interest is left to tlm personal inspec tion of tlio reader , and the merits of the product tire submiUcd to the markets of the world , For Cold Water.
