WASHINGTON' , D. C. , April 15. It Is ap
parent lhat the national banks have no rea
son to expect any legislation in their intercit
nt tbo hands of the present congress. The
senate seems lo bo moro favorably disposed
In Ihls matter than the house , but the
latter body , as has bean the laso for
several years past , promptly checks
any move on the part of the senate
to extend or In any way cncourauo the ox-
Islencu of tbn banks. An example of the
treatment such bills recclvo wns presented
in the house today. The house baa passed a
bill to promote the safety of national banks.
Its purpose was , as staled In the Ullo , and It
was reported by the house committee ou
banking nnd currency , to prevent a recur
rence of the failures that have resulted from
the action of bank oftlclals in borrowing
largo sums of money from their bank ) with
out the knowledge of the directors nnd
treasurer. Tha bill roach oil the senate nml ,
in accordance with tha usual custom in trout-
ing such bills , there was attached an amend
ment authorizing the banks to extend tiiolr
circulation to the full amount of the bonds
deposited by them In the Ircasury , Wben
the bill was returned lo the bouse nnd laid
bcforo that body this afternoon
no attempt was made lo concur
In Ibo Kunalo amendments ; nor was
It permitlod to retain n place of
prlvilnpo on the speaker's table , bjt , on the
motion or Mr. Bland , tha bill was referred
back to Iho committee on banking and cur
rency , from which It will emerge only to
meet defeat on thu lloor ol the house , unless
It be Ulves'.od of the objectionable amend
ment which the BCnato has heretofore in-
liilcd upon altnchiug lo all such bills.
I'oxtolllro Appropriation Hill ,
The postofllco appropriation bill was com-
jilotcit lodny bv the house commiltco on
poslolllccs and will bo reported to tbo house
in a few days , Its npgrognio of appropria
tions Is in the ncighborbood of 00,000,000.
The appropriation for the current llscal year
was $77.H)7nnd ) tbo estimates were
f 0i2l-100. : : The feature of the ulll of chief
interest is the section relating to foreign
malls , Included lu which is what is known
us the subsidy appropriation. The commit
tee , however , did not endeavor to strike ol
the present law by withholding its appio-
priations for its execution , ns some people
thought might bo the caso. Whatever action
is taken oy the committee wllh rofornnco lo
subsidies will bo taken In a general bill and
not an appropriation bill. For foreign inallu
Ibo committee appropriated $ 'JISJ3 : and the
unexpended balance in the treasury.
The approprlnllon mndo for Ihls purpose by
the last congress was f 1,259,000. This amount
was not based on estimates of the postmaster
general , but was the amount congress ro-
pardod ns necessary to carry out Iho subsidy
law. Fewer contracts , however , hnvo boon
made than were estimated for by the congress -
gross , so that It Is found that over $400,000 of
the appropriation is sllll In the treasury.
This unexpended balance , with the amount
appropriated , the committee thinks , will bo
1'ho committee Included ono bill which the
postmaster general did not estimate for , nnd
lhat was fll'0,011 ' for special railway facili
ties. This Is to defray Iho nxpcmtnof what
Is known ns the fast mall from Now YorK
nnd Boston to Tampa , Fla. , to connect with
the West Indian ships , The Item has been
In the appropriation bills for fourteen year * ,
but thli year Iho postmaster concrnl omitted
It from hU estimates. The - de
cided to provide for the service nevertheless.
The amount of compensation to beallowcdall
land grant and aubildUcd railways wasllxed
at 50 per cent of the usual contract price.
The last appropriation bill upproprlalcd
$10,000 for the purchase of confederate
rccordi tclating lo postal affairs , The post
master general , however , declined to make
the purchase nnd this year the commiltco
recommends that- whatever any two of Ibo
following cabinet ofllccrs agree thai Iho
books are needed they shall bo purchased :
The attorney general , secretary of the
treasury and postmaster general.

Inrllncil to Think That Many Things AVcro
Ill-ought Out During the Trial by the
I'rosccntlon Not In Strict Ac
cord with Justice.
HASTIXOS , Nob. , April Ifi. [ Special lo Tun
BEB.J This morning the district court of
the Tenth Judicial district reconvened hero ,
nfter an ndjournmont of some two weeks.
The cause of pirtlcular Interest wns the fact
that today the motion tor a new trial In the
casooflhi ) slulo of Nebraska against A. D ,
Vocum was sot for argument , and because It
wns also expected that the case of Iho
slalo against Jell Tcomor , for aiding and
nbottlng In thohomocldo of Myron Van Fleet ,
would bo brought up for settlement.
At 10 o'clock the court wai called nnd n
couple of other cnscs were disposed of before
the Yocum case was reached. As It was not
generally understood that the motion was to
como up Ibis morning a small crowd of spec
tators and a dozen of attorneys were the only
ones present. Captain 1'ocum's wife was an
interested visitor.
General A. H. Covvon , principal counsel
for Captnln Yocum , asked for n few days
lltno additional limo lo present Iho motion ,
on two grounds ; first , that tlio defense hud
not had sutllclent tlmo to prepare their argu
ments , nnd second , in n few days It might
not bo necessary to urge the motion. It will
be remembered that an application hnd boon
made for pardon to the covetnor , which has
not ns yet bonn sottled.
Tbo delay wns rojlstcJ by Iho state nnd a
very exciting lllllo tilt batween counsel oc
curred. The state announced that Ihoy
would not resist the motion if made.
Tno court wished to consider the matter
nnd n recess was taken until 1 o'clock.
This aflornoon Judge lioall decided thnt
no delay was to lo permitted In Iho prcscn-
lallon of Iho motion. Tbo defense llicn
submitted the mollou wilhoutnrgumenl.
It was promptly overruled , nnd the de
fense Interposed nn exception nnd asked that
forty days leave be given to prepare a bill of
uxcoptions. Leave was granlod. Judge
Bcall then asked Iho defendant If bo had
anything lo say before sentence should bo
passed uuon him.
After hesitating a minute ho arose and ad
dressing the court said : "I desire to express
the gratitude 1 am under to the thousands of
loyal friends who have traveled with mo
through these dark shades till this dark hour.
Continuing I might soy Inany things that I
think would bo In sympathy with the do-
fcnso and with all of our friends nnd
many things that would not redound
to the glory of this prosecution.
Some peculiar ihinps have been done in Ibis
court by these whoso duty It was to proso-
culo Ibis caso. The record of Ibis case dis
closes the fact that many things bnvo been
said nnd dragged through this court and
paraded bcforo the Jury lhat nas found Its
verdict against me , that have not boon Justl-
tlod and which existed onlv In Iho minds of
Iho prosecutors. I must think they were not
thoproseculors , but the persecutors.
" \Vhilo I was in tno position not to
bo able to defend myself the weight
of misery was made worse by the
wolcht of these representations by this
prosecution. Again I wish to thniiK
ihls honorable court nnd those court
oQlclals for the many kindnesses shown mo
and I now submit myself to your sentence. "
* Whofrho finished the court sentenced him
to ono year in tbo penitentiary at bard labor ,
no part of which was to bo in solllary con
finement , nnd to pay the costs of the prose
cution. Captain Yocum thanked the court
for the sentence , which is the lightest that
could have bean imposed for the crime of
Mrs. Yoctun's oycs filled with tenr.s and
Iho caplain stood looking out of the court
room window for a few mmutos.
The principal counsel for both Toemer and
Yocum then announced , that ho was ready to
take up the case against the accessory , JotI

not ready and it was deferred until the Juno

ST. PAI-I , Minn. , April 13. Tno Slssoton
rosorvntlou surplus lands that were opcnod
to settlement nt noon today itro located In tlio
northeastern conior of South Dakota , Qcovor-
Ing the most ot Hoborl county , lapping over
on the ciK'o of Marshall and Day counties ,
crossing the panhandle of Grant ni'd the
sharp point of tlio triangular shaped reser
vation extending down to the center of Cod-
dmcton , n few miles from U'atcrtown , S. D. ,
whcro filings mny be made nnd where much
of the crowd of eager scokors after lands
have boon awaiting this day. The northern
base of the triangle extends ever Into Sar-
pent and Ulcnland counties In North Dakota ,
and for that reason filings may bo made nt
Fnrpo. The reservation Is the source of the
Hcd river of the north , which llowa ulti
mately Into Hudson bay , of the Minnesota
river which crosses this state nml empties
Into the Mississippi uoar this city , nnd of
the Big Sioux river which Hews south and
Joins the Missouri. The lands nro rich and
numerous lakes cover the cntlro extent of
the reservation , a good portion of which Is
wooded anil of a hilly character. In inct ,
the character of tlio land reflects much credit
on the judgment of the Sissolon Indians ,
who chose this land as their reward far thblr
help to the settlers in the Indian war of
Foe nearly thirty years they hold the res
ervation Intact , but finally concluded they
would prefer to have their lands In severally
and live Illca whites , so the matter \vns soon
arranged , with the aid of a commissioner ,
and today's scramble for lands Is the result.
The Indians have selected many of the host
lands on the reservation , but It is estimated
that enough for about -1,033 clalmi of 100
acres each still remained up to noon today.
By tonight there will bo very little , If any ,
loft. There now remain some 700,080 acres ,
the reservation being forty-tiro miles across
tlio northern side and seventy miles on the
southeastern ar.d southwestern sides of the
triangle , respectively.
In u Thickly Settled Country.
This reservation is right in the heart of n
well settled country pud small towns and
cities nro within easy reach of the settler on
whatever part of the reservation ho may
make his home , The Great Northern and
the Milwaukee railroads run nil around the
reservation whllo other roads are within
easy reach , running to some of the many
near towns. The nearest to A central point
Is Browns Valley , Minn. , which is close to
the line of the reservation and almost In the
center of the eastern boundary. It is at the
lower extremity of Lake Traverse , which Is
part of the ensicrirboundary of the reserva
tion and nloug the shore of which are suld to
bo some of tho.cboiuest lands. This town is
at the and of trio Great Northern railroad ,
and has been the point ot cliicf interest to
many of the boomers. A little further south.
along tlio snmo boundary , Is Wllmot , S. D. .
on the Milwaukee , and within a few mile : , of
the line to. which that road extends. A
crowd of several hundred will make the race
for the reservation on a Milwaukco tram ,
and from the end of the track they will rush
for the promised land on whatever convey
ances they can secure.
Waterlown is near the southern point of
the triangle , Dutnot in n position for others
than lllcrs. Waubay , on tbo Milwaukee , is
close to the line , on tbo western side of the
reservation , and farther to the north and a
few miles further Hivity from the line is
Britten. Along the Una of the Great
Northern and Milwaukee on the northern
boundary of the reservation nro located
Fairmont , Oiwnld. Hanklnson. Stiles ,
Ledgervrood , Gayuiia , Hutlund and Suraguo
Lake , in North Dakota , nil of whlcnaro from
ono to ten miles from the line and all of
which had ttieir share of boomers durinu the
past ween.
Other towns there nro that have moro or
less interest In the opening of these lands to
settlement , but these are the new centers
and from thorn will coma the reports of the
sudden growth ot several counties and of the
setllombiit of now towns.
The effect of the opening of thcso lands
will bo felt all over the Dakota ? , for ether
sections have sent out agents to catch the
overllow from the Slsseton opening.
The Abordcen , S. D. , chamber of cora-
tnorco has sent a comntltteo with litcraturo
to secure as much of tno overllow of the settlers
tlors as possible.
TlionimiKla of Analotis Wnltcrs ,
Yesterday the triangular nloco of land ,
woods and lakes , which for the past thirty
years has been sacred to the wild man of the
prairies , was a sea of mud overhung by n
inroalomng sky and surrounded on all of Its
thrensidos by hundreds yea , thousands
who had for months anticipated this titno.
They hud pothered together from all quar
ters of the glebe and were longingly , almost
sleeplessly , watching the land from which n
line of blue coats alone separated them ,
Across an imaginary line that soldiers were
guarding there was n promise of homos nnd
the homeseokor was there to accept that
premise and fulllll its conditions. Tuuday
closed with n break In the clouds , nnd dur
ing the night colder winds blow and chilled
tbo bones , but not the enthusiasm of the
waiting multitude.
This morning the sun shone down on
groups of ready and cugor Bottlers. They
worn girding thoinsolvcsfora racofor homos ,
and tonight thousands &ro sleeping under the
blue sky , but on tno soil of their now homos.
Only twenty-four hours between the mud
and anticipation of yesterday nnd the weary
ro.it after the race and the acquirement of a
homo today , and yet how many incidents and
how much of linportunco to the homes and
future of the state has happened.
It bad boon n week of excitement In a
dozen towns that are near tbo boundary. In
coming hundreds attempting to ovaclo the
vigilance of the soldiers and scheming to se
cure the cboico claims occupied the attention
of all. Today the towns were early deserted
and the nrowds Hocked to tbo line , there to
await the signal gun that was to uo heard
around the reservation. Ono of the crowds
was at Browns Valley , Minn. , at the lower
cud of Lake Traverse. At 1 o'clock this
morn I nc fully 3,000 people had collected along
the reservation line where It runs southward
along the high bluff which arises abruptly
from the iron monument at the head of Lake
Traverse. Many of the croud were spec

country. The cavalry patrols galtonod back

every spot bordering on thn reserve that
could shelter n man , horse or wapon , tbero
Bpr.ing horde * of homoseokors nnd they led
the race for homos.
It is estimated that nbout 1,000 made tbo
rush from Browns Valley. About .100
started from the llttlo town called Traverse ,
four miles from the lake.

promised land was over a prlvnto bridge ,
