MILLION AND HALf ACRES FOR SETTLERS Proceeds of Land les to lie Parti? t'aed for Temporary Deneilt of Indians, and Remainder to Be Held for the Future. (From a Start Correspondent.) WASHINGTON, May 6 (Sporlal Tele gramsMajor James McLaughlin of th Indian bureau Is preparing his report on the treaty recently negotiated by him be tween the United States and 1,650 Shoshone and Arapahoe Indians now occupying the Wind river reservation In Wyoming whereby 1,40.000 acres of land will be thrown ope-n to white settlement. The Indians agree to retire from 1,600,000 acres and take up their domiciles upon a tract covering about 800,000 acres. Those who may settle In the Wind river reservn tlon are to pay at the following rates and make final payment within eight yearn: One dollar and a half per acre for all lands taken within the first two years; $1.25 per acre after three years, and all remaining unsold after three years to be disposed of by the secretary of the Interior at fl per acre, and should any lands remain after the expiration of eight years they shall be placed on sale for any amount they will bring. ' The proceeds from the sale of the Wind river lands will be hold by the t'nltod States for the purpose of creating a fund out of which M per capita Is to be paid to each and every Indian of the tribe or tribes. This obligation having been paid, subsequent money received from the sale of Wind river lands will be held by the government for the purpose of lrrlgnting lands retained by Indians, the purchase of stock and $M,O0O for school purposes. Including the $50 per capita payment. Irri gation fund, purchasing stock and money for school purposes It Is estimated will call for about $335,000. It Is expected that a considerably larger sum than this will be realized from the sale of the lands to be opened to settlement In the Wind river country and the surplus Is to be deposited In the United States treasury to create a "general welfare fund," which will be dis bursed by the secretary of the Interior for the benefit of the Indians at his dis cretion.

Mr. Nelms was the law partner of Mr. Barrett after the latter re signed from the postofflce department. He explained the partnership from its con ception to his resignation to take up the study for the ministry. He said that he and Mr. Barrett had differences of opin ion In regard to the rights of two or three Investment companies among their clien tele. Mr. Nelms said he contended that the government was "grinding down" too hard on the companies nnd desired that a pro test be made to General Tyner. He said Mr. Barrett thought that the department was right and declined to Interfere. Charles A. Spenney was the next wit ness. . At the time of the Issuance of the Barrett opinion he was a director of the Ohio Debenture company. He testified that he had come to Washington to see how the opinion affected his comnany and that he saw General Tyner at the department. "Mr. Tyner asked me If I had a lawyer," said the witness. "I answered that, I had not, and asked If he knew of a good one. Mr. Tyner sard Mr. Barrett was a good' lawyer and that there were other good lawyers that I could get I tried to reach Mr. Barrett. At first Mr. Barrett wanted $1,000 for representing the company, but when I explained that we were new In the business we compromised on $500." tt HI Honor.

If you say that the certificate of this company Is all right I will approve It." Continuing, the witness said: "I asked for something to take back to my people to show that th company wus all right and Mr. Tyner said he would issue a certificate temporarily and If he found everything a represented would send another within a few days." A. D.
