Dully heaving tlic Terri tory \n Profound JRKIIHI | A Kiitlo Awakening From a Dream of Wealth. Tlio Hiibhlo Ilur.Ufi. Gmnnra , Oklahoma ( via. Arkansas City , Kan. } , April 25. [ Special Telegram to THIJ UfiPi ] Tlio process of nmglc city building fitill goes on licrc , and tlio excitement and confusion continues. Iwo btinlcs have al ready started. Ono of them has Its building up , but tlio other Is doing business over n counter in front of the building being erected , The number of restaurants has In creased to nineteen , with about as many moro lunch .stands. Two uutchcr shops , four barber shops , twenty-eight land and low offices , three livery stables , twenty stores , and other business enterprises have been established In tents. House building ROCS on as rapidly as carpenters and lumber can bo procured. Twenty-six houses liavo liccn built within the past two days. Tlio greatest Jam Is In front of the land ofllco , whcro fully flvo hundred men stand and sit In line outside , awaiting their turn to fllo on their claims , and people are hurrying hero from all over Oklahoma to lllo on claims located at vnrlousj points. The rush at ttio postofllco Is so great , and such a Btatd of confusion prevails , that It Is hard to get mail or send it off. There is only ono de livery-for about ton thousand people , and In order to'gnt near the posiofllco tent , It Is necessary to stand in the line In the hot sun .for an hour or two , and then perhaps no malls have been received for two dava , or , if received , the postmaster has been unable to gctthom distributed. Poslago stumps are very scarce and havo.bcen sold as high as 10 cents npieco to persona who were anxious to got letters off. Tlio poslofllco supply was exhausted on the first day. The depot and express ofilcn are tno scenes of the greatest confusion. People are rush- ng hither and tbitber , hunting baggage , express - press and freight , while others arc anxiously n vnilitig the arrival of trains to leave fore o her parts. All trains are be- V.lnd tluio and no confidence can bo placed In the railroad's schedule , and tno agent scorns unable to keep track of the trains. It is strange that more accidents nro not occurring. Two freight trains collided yes terday inorning four miles south of hero and wore pretty badly wrecked , but no ether ac cident is reported. The passenger train for the north last evening pulled out with ten coaches loaded with disgusted and disup polntC'1 people leaving Oklahoma. The cars were literally packed , and also the platforms and stops were crowucd. Nearly everybody hero is armed , but pence and quiet prevail , and the reports sent put from hero of the killing of somi5 claim Jump- .crs nro all manufactured. The only danger from firearms is that someone will bo killed by the reckless shooting that is done all over the camps by tenderfoot who uro not fa miliar with the use of weapons , and shoot oft their pistols and Winchesters ovor.v night simply because there is no law against it. ( jutltrlo Is full of huckster shops of all kinds , and presents tbo appearance of the outside of n 'ountry fair , where peanut , lorn- onado and sandwich venders ure shouting in cvor.V direction and selling tholr stuff. A number of fakirs hnvo boon plying their vo cation hero , and a few shell games vvcro broken up by the military to-day. Tlio games are similar lo three-card muntc , only a llttlo worse , and several hundred dollars were won from unsuspecing-"greenlos. " There Is considerable speculation in town lots , and exorbitant prices uro offered for choice- ones , Ono man is said tolmvo refused mi offer of $1,500 for n corner lot. Heal es tate agents are busily engaged la soiling claims , although moat of tlio lots have sov- ural.clalmaats. Part of the land has been homcstcaded and part entered as town sites , and all has boon squatted upon by Bottlers ; hcnco endless litigation ti euro to follow. The whole camp is being surveyed by several parties , and until plats have been uuido and accepted by the land ofllco at Washington , no man can .toll what lot ho owns or Decuples. Trouble and strife are likely to result from thi < ; unsettled Btato of affairs. All hero recognize the im portance of having some sort of law for Guthrla , ana ox-Alayor Constantine , of Springllold , O. , has boon made temporary police Judge , and has appointed several po licemen to preserve the peace , for the United States marshal's force was not to bo.do- pcndcd upon. The thousands of people hero have to put up with many hardships and inconveniences , und many persons who tmvo como in hero uro loud In tholr denunciation of the news papers that published such glowing accounts of Oklahoma to Induce thorn to desert homes elsewhere to como here. Thcro Is every rea son to believe that Guthric will bo a live city , for n while , at least , but the present boom is not likely to continue very long , for thnra is nothing now but tbo tush and ex citement and confusion to sustain it. Claim Jumping. ESMOND. Oklahoma ( via Arkansas City , ' Kan. ) , April 5. [ Special Tolecra'n to TUB Hnn.J Considerable claim Jumping lias been done here , and this town and the land around It is claimed by different parties. Several persons are said to havn been upon the land long before the tlmo for owning Oklahoma under the president's proclamation , and are , therefore , denied all legal rights to land In ' the torrltory. Hut they toolt possession of the host part of Edmond , ana but for being driven off by the Chicago and Missouri colonies nies , would luwo hold It. Three town sites have boon located there , and there will bo seine trouble over the organi/atlon of a pro visional government , owing to the fact that several factions are trying to control the af fairs of the town.

DP.NVKU , Colo. , April 25. [ Special Tele gram to Tin : Hnu. ] About a year ago James Groouway was taken 111 nnd after a brio ! sickness died , leaving considerable property to his wife. Since the death of her husband Mrs. Groeiuvny was accustomed to keep his grave in good condition and to dccorato it with flowers. Yesterday , Mrs. Greenway Visited Hlvorsido cemetery and was attend ing to the flowers , when she noticed a strange woman approaching. Supposing the latter to bo there on a mission similar lo her own , Mrs. Greenway paid slight alien- lion to the stranger. When she finally looked up nnd their eyes met , the slrangor re marked : "Wbal do you plant llowors on that grave for I" 'Because it Is the grave of my husband , " was the subdued reply. "Well , you need not plant any moro or fivo-tho grave any further attention , us Iho body of your husband is not thero. " "What do you mean I" nervously asked Mrs. Qrcenwny , growing apprehensive nnd casting a look of anxious inquiry at the strange woman. "I menu just what I say , " was the cool reply "Tlie remains of your husband have been removed. If you consider them worth n small ransom I believe I could secure and return them , provided that you kcop quiet , and conditioned upon no questions being asked. " Mrs. Greenway hurried to the sexton's house and Informed htm what she had heard , nnd an Investigation proved that the body had been removed.

RECORD OF THE TOUGH GANG. NamcR or Homo of the Men . Who , Under the Leadership of Duo iMIdu'lcton , Terrorize tlio Country. Koya Palm Raiders. Smixovinw , Nob. , April 2o. [ Special to Tnu UKB. ] It would not , bo strange if the names of Koya Palm nnd other counties of northern Nebraska should become a syno nym for lawlessness. For three years n band of thoroughly or ganized cattle and horse thieves has been operating in this part of the state. Indeed , its organization might bo said to data from tlio tlmo a former band succumbed to the radical work of vigilantes , who were forced to organize for self-protection. The present band is much stronger than the old ono , and ndor much better leadership. To verify Ills , it is enough to sav that Doc MIddlcton s at the head of It. Ho is know to be keen , nd sagacious , nnd ono of the most despor- , to runiati * on the frontier. Following in his vako nro C. M. Clay , William Powell , "Icorgo Habcock and K. T. Gan- ion. They might all bo called lead- rs of the gang in their re- pcctivo localities. The gang has lived under ho guise of semi-respectability slnco Its or ganization , nnd contains members who have ccupicd local posilions of trust nnd honor , " 'owell was a former treasurer of Koya 'alia ' county. It Is a known fact that the ang has sympathizers among the most romluont and inliucntial citbcns of the orthcrn portion of the state , and this makes t very dltllcult to KXTKUMlXATn IT IIOOT AND ItlUXCH. The shrewdness of the operations of the gang is In mind when It is stated that they ire confined to the Sioux reservation. That ocallty is eschewed that would bring any ; nember of the lawless band within the Jur- sdiotion of the state or federal courts , and ivhcn horses or cattle are stolen the thieves r gang snap tholr lingers at any attempt made to liniSO THEM TO JUSTICE. It will bo remembered that the Sioux res ervation is in Dakota. Now , the gang infests Koya Paha , Hock and other contiguous counties in this state. Homesteaders and cattle breeders or crazcrs of the state per mit their cattle and horses to feed upon the cscrvation , having arranged for it with the udlans , and they are loft in charge of lierders , who round thorn up In largo num bers during the grazing season , Just as the herder used to do in the earlier unys In this part of the state. During the still hours of the night , or in open day , when a consider able number of horses or cattle ara obscured n brake or glen , the thieves cret n their work , driving thorn into Dakota territory , thus placing them beyond the pales of court Jurisdiction in this stale. Judge Dundy has so decided. It can now bo seen that I he United Stales district court of Dakota would bo the olily court of competent Jurisdiction In such cases. The law abiding citizens of northern Nebraska IMVO had this difficulty to bother them from Iho first , and for solf-proteclion were finally forced to organize into protcctivo associa tions or vigilance committees , having tried redress in the courts rcueatsdly und failed. The public is already acquainted with the arrest of Clay , Cannon and Habcock by the vigilance committee last January. Clay was held from the Oth to the 15th of the mouth. The committee hold him u day or two ; but , upon receipt of tno lelegram from Governor Thuyerby Sheriff Cable , stating that ho would hold Him responsible for the protec tion of life nnd property , Clay was given into his hands and subsequently released on a writ of habeas corpus. Thus a number of the gang again escaped when positive proof ivas in hand that hu was guilty of STEAMNG 11OTH HOltSUS AND CATTLE. Wilhin the past ten days the encroach ments have again been felt by the poor homesteaders of Koya Paha counly. Nine head of horses wcro "rounded up" on the reservation and run off. As yet neither they nor the thieves have been located , and the belief is strong lhat the stock has bcon safely marketed. This lea to a meeting of the protective as sociation. Clay and his pals , since his release , have assiduously circulated the rcnort that tno governor had promised him Iho protection of the state militia , if neces sary. In fact , the telegram sent by the gov ernor during the winter has been so griev ously misinterpreted that the story gained general credence. This nettled the settlers , and many of thorn were loth to act , oven In self-dofenso , nnd some have been preparing to quit the country rather than longer sub mit to the outrages. The mooting called , however , resulted In dispatching G. H. Hogcrs for a conference with the governor. Ho is now in Lincoln , nnd the news has Just been received hero that no assurance has even boon given Clay , or any ono else , that the governor would prelect lawlessness by the state soldiery or other armed authorities ; further , that ho will not Interfere if the law- abiding citizens take the law Into their own hands , if domed the protection of the courts. This news was received hero with domon- slralions of delight and gratification. It is needless to say that SHOUT wonu WILL nr. MA.DK of Middloton and his gang If there are any further "misappropriations" of property. Hut no advances will bo made by the better class of citizens hero , unless It becomes nec essary. They have no desire to war upon the gang , if they nettle down to honest lives , or leave Iho country , Ono or Iho other must bo done , or there will bo border scenes with out a parallel in the history of the state. During the pilgrimage of Tun HEB ropro- sonlalive through Koya Puha , Hook and adJoining - Joining counties , a loiter was submitted to him. written at Springviow , under date of April 10. It pives a comprehensive history of the operations of the gang since its or ganization. The gentleman lo whom It was addressed , however , doslrcs that his name and the nauio of the wriler bo suppressed. Hut Ihoy are known lo Governor Thayer , nnd he can attest that the sources are genuine and the ft formation it contains reliable. It is as folllows : Dear Sir In answer to your request - quest for facts regarding the stealing of slock on or about the line , between the Sioux reservation and Nebraska , will state : Tills trouble began in the sum mer of 1S87. Horace G. Stewart admits that ho , O. M. Clay and John Remus , stole thir teen heaa of marcs and colts and disposed of them lo a party in Urown county. These horses were stolen on the reserve near the Missouri river ut the mouth of Whetstone creek. A short tlmo after this William Powell bought ninety-seven head of beef stcors of Antoina Hurdcaux , of Rosebud agency , and paid for them with worthless or fraudulent checks on u bank at Stuart. In early autumn following the summer , H. G. Stewart furttior states that Clay , llomus and himself Btolo about twenty-one head of beef cattle from K. W. Hnymond of the Sioux reserve and turned them over to William Powell , who drove thorn to Hassott. in Drown county ( near Hock counly ) und delivered them to u party wbo shipped them to Omaha. The cattle wcro branded with a figure Q and ono of thorn was killed near K F , Gannon's place , and the hide was found bv ono of his neighbors who will make aflldavit to the sumo if necessary , Some fresh beef was given to this man , whoso name Is James Dean , by Stewart about the time of the kill ing. ing."Shortly uftcr this Stewart testifies that Clay and Uomus stole fifty-live bead of cattle of all sorts on Oak Creek , Sioux reserve , known as Iho 'Oak Crook cattle , ' delivered them to him inside the Nebraska line , and that hu and James Morrison drove them south to Drown county to a brother of William Powell. From there Stuart drove a car load of thorn to the railroad and shipped them , receiving some 550 for thorn. The remainder are supposed to have been driven west and disposed of , "Daring the summer and fall tbo settlers In this county lost a grout niany cntilowhich they could ret no track ofi About vtho Ifith of June , 1SS3 , A H Warrior lot seventeen head of beef stcors , whltSlf were being pas tured on the reserve by'Glover ' Hamblct. Thco cattle were lost soolrln the possession of George Habcock nftcr.belng taken from the herd. About the 1'tliof October , of the same year , twenty-two head of steers nnd ono horse disappeared from James Sklr- vlngs' herd on Ponca creek. Sioux reserve , nnd ho has found no trace of them yot. On the 17th of December following. M. L. Taylor lost twenty-flvo tinnii of cow nnd young caltlo , which wcro also herded by Hamblct on Iho reserve. Six teen head of these cattle , wcro found on Had river , on the Choycnno agency. In possession of Abe Hoar , a squaw man. Ho bought the cntilo of A. J. Maupln , of Pierre , Dak. Mnu- pin claimed to have traded horses for them on the Key Palm river. . These catllo wcro settled for by Gcorgo linbcock and E. T. Gannon xvith stock. During the summer of 1883 seine fifteen settlers have lost various numbers of cattle under' suspicious circum stances , and Uabcock has been known to soil a great deal of very cheap meat to different persons. Ho hauled souio of It- through Springviow , our county scat , nnd sold ono quarter to M. O. Mo.id , of Hrown county , for comparatively nothing. Falling lo sell the whole lot , as the weather was warm , ho threw a quarter.on a. hill by tlio roadside , where it was found later. Tho.1 papers in your possession will give- you ful particulars in regard to the horse known as the Query marc. About the Ikl of January , 188'J , M. L. Taylor started north to look for the aforesaid twenty-five head of cattlo. Uabcoclc and Gannon also started north u few days before , nnd when Taylor got to the White river , Sioux reserve , they were on their return home , nnd worn seen with a largo bunch of horses nnd euttto. Seine forty- six head of these calllo were found a short time afterwards on White Thunder creek. These cattle belonged ! to W. C. Curtis , United States commissioner at Hosobud agency , nnd were branded with the initials of the owner's names. Six head or these cattle wcro brought south to the Keya Paha river , by Gannon and Habcock , and driven across Koyn Paha into Hock county , and sold bv E. F. Gannon to different par- tics. Ho traded two cows to the Mushfelt Hros. , nnd sold four steers to Broatou Uros. for $50. " WITH THIS STATEMENT OF 1'AOT there is lilllo wonder' ' that the sctllers of Koya Paha and adjoining counties are rising in their might , over & 00 strong , and propose lo put a.stop to catllo and horse stealing or exterminate the gang. Summary work may "jo expected if the governor's visit Into this > art of the slate docs not have u salutary in- luonco. It is expected that ho will reach lore during Iho early part of next week. The rotcctivc association will meet him In rank nd fllo at Springviow. They openlv say , hat they nro not ashamed of their organiza- ion , nnd take pride in Iho fact that it Is coni- > oscd of the best citizen's of the county. There is also a strong ami-vigilance organ ization hero. It is composed of some citizens , vho have evidently bcon" imposed upon , nnd hey doubtless believe that sonio of the lead- ng members of the band have been moro inncd against than sinning. It will probably number * 10(1uersons ( , half jf whom have no moro respect for aw and order than the devil has for the righteous. Some of the ganc's sympathizers are under very close surveillance. Some are oven sus- : ) icioncd of having gathered riches from ialcs and trades of stolen cattle and horses. Ono lawyer of Springfield , especially. Is watched by a thousand eyes. Ho bus coun seled the members of the gang that were rounded up by the vigilantes and taken into custody. It is openly stated that ho is too ntimalo with the loaders of Iho calllo ; hieves. and oven goes out-of the way to aid them. If the hanging inatlnoo commences , his nook would not tvorth a sixpence. His name can bo given A the proper time. Clay , Gannon nnd BabcooK CAME NEAUEIl HANOINO ast January than most people think. Tlio vote was taken by Iho vigilance committee , nnd Ihoir necks were only saved by a vote of threo. These worthies swore vengeance because - cause of this. Gannon has made bis boast that ho will kill every man that voted to hang him , and bo says bo has them all spoted. The Query mare , referred to in the bistor- cal letter , was found at Uosobud agency , ivhcro it had been sold by ono of the gang , said to have been Clay , and was killed by un known parties the night the owner traced her down. This was March 4. It is learned that the mare was killed to prevent proper appearance against Clay. In dian agent Sponccr ordered a post mortem examination the day after she was killed , and the agency physi cian says that she had no organic disease , but came to her death by being punctured In Iho jugular veins by some sharp Instrument , possibly a lanceor the blade of a sharp knifo. Other Incidents of a fiendish nature might bo mentioned , but it only prolongs a story of inhumanity and ruffianism. The allldavit of Horace G. Stewart , a member ot the gangv which has been sent to and is in the hands of the governor , with others , not only estab lishes guilt , but names the. parties and the extent to which the thieving has been carried in Northern Nebraska during the past three years. The aflldavit relates to the the ft and sale of the fifty-five head of catllo referred lo in Iho letter ; "SpHixaviEW , Nob. , Feb. 15. , 1889. I first saw the Oak Crock or the P catllo northeast of Turtle Huttcs , three miles. The next tim Homus nnd O. M. Clay turned thorn over lo mo at Kcmus' place.

My agreement with Clay and Keuius was , I was to have one-fourth of what tlio calllo brought.'and Clay , llomus and Powell , one-fourth each ; was caught with the cattle at the river , and Powell would not have anything to do with them , William Hobb wus to have shipped the catllo for $75 , but backed out , so I shipped them nnd secured 5015 and did not give any ono anything.

Fraudulent PrnctlcoB of Ofllclate In Oklahoma , TO BE SEVERELY PUNISHED. The CltnrccB Will Uo Considered Hy the Cablnot Tanner's Scheme For 1'rotcotliifj the Pensioners. WASHINGTON HUIIEAU , Tun O.MVHA HER , ) D13 FouitTEi-.NTii STIIEET , } WASIIINOTOX. D. C. , April 25. I There is no doubt that the investigation into Iho alleged fraudulent practices of Marshal Tom Needles nnd United States of ficials ia Oklahoma , in securing for them selves the choicest town lots In Gulhrlo , will bo pushed lo Iho cxlcnt of ferrotllng out out every wrong door. LJoth Scerolnry Noble nnd Iho president are determined to visit summary punishment upon every official who can bo proved guilty of the charges which have been so frequently made against thorn during the past few days. Tlio in spector's report , which was ordered , to-day , by telegraph , will probably not bn hero for some llttlo time. When it comes it will bo carefully considered In a cabinet meeting , and If the charges , made by the newspapers , are sustained , every man in any way mixed up in Iho land stealing , will not only bo sum marily dismissed , but will in all probabil ity cbo prosecuted criminally. The president nnd Secrclary Noble nro greatly worried over tlio reports and will allow no guilty man lo escape. ruoTr.cTixa TENSION-BUS. Commissioner Tanner has adopted a now schema in Ibo publication of Iho names of npiilicanls lo whom pensions are granted eaeh day. Ho still furnishes the complete "list to the press , but Instead of following the old plan of giving the postofllco address of each pensioner ho gives the name and the state in which the individual lives. This has boon found necessary owing to the p'enslon agents printing the pension list In the dally papers and using this list of pensioners as directories in order that they may extend iholf business by Inducing the pensioner to apply for still moro. This scheme of the pension agents has caused the depart ment a great deal of extra labor , und it frequently costs the pensioner u great deal of unnecessary anxiety nud the outlay of money which ho can ill afford to waste. A pension agent will write to him that bis claim has been allowed und that ho ( the pension agent ) can secure an increase , ho thinks , if ho has nil Iho facls placed before him. Of course , Iho applicant Is asked for another fee , and. in the hope of securingmoro money , will besiege the pension ofllco through his attorney for a reopening of his case. STONE'S AI'I'OINTMENT. Ex-Governor Stone , of Iowa , was , to-day , appointed donuty commissioner of the gen eral laud office. Senalor Allison called on Iho president this morning , and urged him once more to hand the commlssloncrshlp to Governor Stone , but Secretary Noble , it is understood , has another candidate for the place , and , therefore , the ox-governor did not got It , but wus put into a minor posilion. While Mr. Slockslogor's successor as com missioner has not yet been announced , it is understood that the change will bo made within a very-few days , although it is possi ble the nresidcnt may not name any one for the place until after his return from the fes tivities in New York. There is n very decided hitch in the ap ointment of the first and second deputy commissioners of pensions. * * The salary is $3,000 ayoar , and the offices have been eagerly sought. The two principal candidates now in Iho field for the two positions are General Iliram Smith , of Cameron , Mo. , and General E. W. E. lloss , of Haltlmoro. Twelve days ago Sccrelury Noble sent General Smith's name to the president for appointment as first deputy , and Commissioner Tanner Is exceedingly anxious to see General Uoss obtain the second dcputyshlp. Secretary Noble is also very favorably disposed toward General Hoss. It seems , however , that Sen ator Hiscock , of Now York , stands in the way. The second doputv is General Joseph .T. Hartlott , of New York. Mr. Hartlett is a democrat of the most advanced stripe and ono who has never made any con cealment of his active partisanship , but ho Is a warm personal friend of Senator Hiscock , nnd the senator has said that no Influence shall bo powerful enough to remove General Hartlett. It is understood that ho has gained Senator Evart's influence , besides n number of other slrong political friends , and between them they nro confident that General Hart lett will remain in his ofllco. Mr. Tanner , eager as ho is for General Hartlctt's removal , finds hluisolf helpless , and the result is that there is a deadlock in the appointment of the deputy commissioner of pensions. HOT ENOUOII TO OO AltOUND. Commissioner of Internal Hovonuo Mason will very shortly have twenty special agents of Internal revenue to appoint. These offices nro very much sought after by congressmen for active working friends. It appears , how ever , that of the twenty there are only nine to bo distributed among the forty senators and 100 republican representatives. Mr. Masun st tos that there nro four republican hold-overs , who will bo rcappolntcd , four who were dismissed by Mr. Miller , but who will bo rolnstatcd , nnd lhat three have al ready been promised to high ofileial person ages , so that there remains only nine for the rest of the world. There is nn equally actlvo scramble for the twenty-eight positions of special agents of Iho treasury , which uro lo bo divided among the forty-two states. It is underntood that the Now York delegation has demanded und boon promised ut least six if not cicht of the special treasury agenls. M1IS. IIAUIttSOXV01IHY1NO. . A friend of Iho family of Iho president soys that Mrs Harrison is greatly worried ever Iho condition of tier husband. It is assorted that the constant demands of ofllco-scckcrs and the worry which follows the daily hearings - ings of plaints and complaints of his visitors has worn upon the president to such , an ex tent that it has produced insomnia , and his family are urging him to take a vacation of a week , at least. It Is probable that this course will bo adopted soon after the return of thu presidential party from the centennial celebration. At present the president takes his constitutional every day , and is debarred only by rain from walking several miles every evening. "IIUCK" TAYI.OK.

PKIUIY S. HEATH. HE up or. ion A SQUAW Ami the Camera Caught Him In the Act , CimmoN , April 24. ISpoclal.l At Gor don there was a miscellaneous aggregation of people on the platform to receive us. Among them were half a dozou squaws , ranging In years from early Womanhood to old nee. They displayed n natural reserve , which successfully resisted all the efforts of Iho mosi engaging hugglsts of the party to Induce thorn to engage In conversation. The nttcnllons of some of Iho party brought a number of mule aborigines to the platform. These were covered from head to foot in largo army blankets , n sect Ion of tholr 1m- mobllo foalurcs oven being cowled from view. The camera was brought Into action , the Indians were grouped nt the end of the depot , nnd Just as Iho focus was obtained Max Moycr Jumped inlo position , nnd Just as the pinto was exposed- extended his arm around the shoulders of the protllost squaw , as ho might Lave done around a sister's. ' H. G. Clark emulated his example on the other end , of tbo line and then Iho plate was obscured nnd the palofuces and their copper coiorod brolhorn wcro taken in the picture. The brass band of the town played a dirge while the photographer was at work. At Hushvlllo a number of Indians were discovered on tlio plnlform. The majority of thorn wcro women , nnd each of those bore a papoose In her arms. At a distance of a quarter of a milo from the dopol were half a dozen lepoos , from all of which lijjht curls of pale blue smoke were ascending Into the evening air. The supply depot of Iho Uosebud agency is localcd at this place. The supplies are here received from Iho train nnd tlron carted away by the Indians ou orders from the ugout. At Hay Springs wo mot several loading citizens while two hundred or moro who were unknown to fame , stood upon the plat form nnd cheered the party as it dismn- barkcd. Here wo met the once famous Doc Middloton , at ono tluio the alleged terror of this section of Iho country. As Is pretty well known , ho long ago became domesticated and is now residing ut Kushville , the last place visited. Ho is cultivating n largo beard , wears the ordinary white hat of the country , and looks anything but the ideal border ruffian , which he was once consid ered to bo. While talking to you ho has a habit of resting his hands In Ills hip pockets , a habit which suggested lo some of our people plo Iho advisability of giving him a very wide berth. I could not rests the temptation to see what kind ot an arsenal hu kept in those pockets , und satisfied myself that ho was much inoro lightly armed than some of our party. At Chttdron , Tuesday night , wo stopped for supper. The hotel was thronged to moot us. I met a numoorot people who had for merly resided in Omaha , A general shaking of hands tooir place , after which it was an nounced that wo would return Wednesday night , when it was determined that the party should become their guests for a few hours before going north to the hills.

[ Special Telegram to Tin : lien. ] Lcsllo Carter was again on tha * witness stand all day. Ono of his lawyer * would road n letter from Mrs. Carter to him and would then question the witness about circumstances connected with It. Mr. Carter told how ho had found In his wife's portfolio , loiters from Charles Dommlng , of Now York. Ono was dated September , 18S4. It commenced : 1I take my text from the opls- tlo of Carter lo the Uouumlan. " It con tained a lot of rather unconnected sentences. "Your last letter to the Hoheinlan Is jusl like a woman always with n woman's anxiety for moro. It must bo remembered , my heuroi-8 , that It is woman's nnturo to in sist on full measure , but to glvo sparingly herself. The Carter says to the Bohemian that she can not see the H , but she hopes ho may como to see her. Is the H the employer of nu army of typewriters and the owner of a paper mill ! Oh , no ; ho Is only u plain , common man , with all the longings , desires , and passions of u man. Cartar tolls mo that if 11 can not talk to her ho can s.iv on paper what ho would say If ho were with hnr. Are the feeling * , the passions , satiallcdi Oh , no , my dear ncaror.s. With ono long kiss , ona loving embrace , ono hour of passion , 1 eloso. " Letters in the same style were rond. A number of lottora writtou by Mrs. Cm-tor to Carter during the time ho was treating her so badly , according to Mrs. Curler , were next read. They loomed with "Dour Leslie , " "Uoarost Leslie. " "Uourle , " "Sweetheart , " nnd nil the lavish nnd extravagant expres sions. Mrs , Carter said : "I nm not discontented Indnod I am not. Please , dearie , bo kind , nice and good. No , 1 don't say that. You are always that. " hi another letter Mrs. C.irtor writes : "Leslie , my dear boy , 1 am awfully , awfully ' tired , " etc. Closing , she said : " 1 love you. and 1 am your loving Klttio. Thanks for tha money. " Mr. Carter started to toll the jury about what ho found ntthocottagoatCooporstown. "I leai'ncd that tlio living expenses wora much higher than she had represented tame mo ; the rant was higher than she had said it was. I found that her conduct with Mr. William Constable " "No , no , wait ono moment ; that wont do , " said Airs. Carter's lawyer , and finally it was brought out that there was no nllogulion of Impropriety with Mr. Constable , either iu t/'io answer or cross bill ; so that feature of the case was erased. In Scutamhor , 1834 , Mrs. Carter was in Cooperstown , still long ing for Leslio. According to hoi- letters , she wanted to die because of the nagging and talk , and she hated a mean , nasty man who was also talked about with her. She ex pressed regret at having spent so much of her Leslie's money , and wondered if she .vould bo forgiven. Aeain , during the sumo month , nnd also in Cooparstown , Mrs. Car er acknowledged the receipt of : i letter ho : iad written in answer to her blue , dlsheart- med letter. It was a precious , kind-hearted etior , and she thanked him for it. She , vunted him to romcmber that she was sonsl- , ivQ and foolish , nnd she wus sorry she hud ver bean seen with that misty , mean 'carco , referring to the State Senator 'carco , of Urooklyn.
