I A, WELSH, Local Forecaster. at Two South Dakota Towns Made Dry by Federal Statute SIOUX FALLS, 8. D., June 6. (Special.) A traveler going to any of the towns In the ceded portion of the Cheyenne River Indian reservation, In the north central part of the state, It he desires a drink of Intoxicating liquor will have to carry his liquor with him and keep it carefullly concealed, for the government officials have Issued a forcible warning to the councils of the towns on the ceded lands not to Issue saloon licenses or trouble will follow. Two of the towns affected are Dupree and Trail City. White residents of the ceded lands were unaware that they resided In 'dry' ter ritory until the government officials fur nished them with an extract from an act of congress approved February 17, 1910, which authorized .the sale and disposal of the surplus and unallotted lands In the Cheyenne and Standing Rock Indian reservations. The extract reads as fol lows; And provided further, that the allotted lands, those retained or reserved, and the surplus lands sold, set aside for township purposes, or granted to the said states or otherwise disposed of under the provisions Of this act, shall be sub ject for a period of twenty-five years to all the laws,of the United States prohibit ing the Introduction of Intoxicants into the Indian country. In the event that those favoring the opening of saloons persist In their efforts and arrests are made. It is probable the courts will be called upon to decide whether or not congress has the right to declare "dry" for twenty-five years or any other period land which formerly was included in an Indian reservation, but which has passed to the control -of the whites.

This was the first definite indication of the attorney general's atti tude toward an investigation now being conducted .to determine whether an "oil trust" still exists. His objections to the decree, like those he expressed against the Tobacco trust decree, are based on the ground that a real dissolution of a trust cannot be ac complished by a distribution of the stock pro rata among the same shareholders, From Charles B. Morrison and Oliver E. Pegan, his special assistants, the at tomey general has heard the results of their investigation of the oil situation and Is now deliberating whether the De partment of Justice will be Justified in taking further action under the Sherman law. Should he reach the conclusion that a trust still exists, It Is pointed out that three plans of action are open to tire at torney general a civil suit for th disso lution of any new combination, Indict ment of Individuals or contempt of court proceedings. If action is taken- it Is believed it will be more likely of a criminal nature. Henwood Defense Springs Surprise DENVER, Colo., June 6. The defense In the second trial of Harold F.

T OBACCQ TAX IS PROVIDED I N Nebraskan Offers Amendment to Tariff Bill Aimed at Manu facturers of Weed. MEANT TO CRUSH THE TRUST Senator Says it Would Bring in Fifteen Millions Yearly. Cent for First Million Pounds, Two for Second and On Up. SIX MADE THE MAXIMUM Dorah Would Bar from Entry All Goods Made Wholly or In Part by Children .Under Four teen Years Old. (From a Staff Correspondent.) WASHINGTON, June 6.-(SpccIal Tele- gram.) Senator Hitchcock today offered an amendment to the tariff bill to enforce a sliding or graduated tax on tobacco, In doing so the senator said It was de signed to force a real dissolution of the tobacco trust. "This amendment carries out the sug gestion of the attorney general," said Senator Hitchcock, "and would not only raise additional revenue from our, grown tobacco concerns, but would also hand! cap them so as to permit successful com- petlon from companies now rapidly being crushed out by the monopoly. "This proposed tax would In the aggre gae reach $15,000,000 a year, and soon force a real dissolution of the tobacco trust If it did not. It would yield a handsome revenue to the treasury, and so handicap the trust that It could not carry out Its program of crushing inde pendent companies." Taxed In nlslnir Scale. The progressive excise tax proposed would not reach a manufacturer until he controlled about 25 per cent of the total production of the articles. Over that amount he would be taxed In a ris ing scale on tobacco 1 cent a pound for the first million pounds per quarter, 2 cents a pound fo r the second million pounds and so on up to 6 cents a pound. These graduated taxes would be in addi tion to the regular 8 cents a pound tax that all manufacturers pay on tobacco. The same is true of the progressive tax j on cigars, cigarettes and snuff. Companies of ordinary size would not be subject to this tax because It does not apply to a production below 80,000,005 pounds of tobacco or 4,000,000 pounds of . . M ii . ' I .MA . l smui a year,, no inai at wio ,iw unwwo companies in the country probably only three would be affected, and of the seventy-three" snuff companies only threi would be taxed. In the -matter- of- cigarettes the tax would fall on only two or three companies out of 4T8 and of the 10.000 cigar companies only two have a production large enough to be taxed. Seventy Millions Last Year. Seventy million dollars was the amount of the total excise last year on tobacco products, and Senator Hitchcock has esti mated that If the proposed tax had been levied on last year's business the "for eign trust concerns" would have paid the additional tax as follows: American Tobacco company, $7,600,000; Liggett & Meyers, $3,100,000; Lortllard company, $144,000; American Snuff com pany, $77,000; George W. Helme company, $69,000; Weyman & Burton company, $51, 000. "There would alBo have been other companies subject to this tax if It could be shown that they were under the same ownership of control as any of the big companies," said Senator Hitchcock to day, "and in the case of the Lorlllard company If it could be shown that 'It Is owned or controlled by the same Interests that are back of any other company. It is probable, therefore, that this tax In tho aggregate would reach $15,000,000 a year, which Is so large that It would soon cause a real dissolution of the1 Tobacco trust. If It did not. It would yield a handsome revenue to the treasury and so handicap the trust that It could not carry out 'Its program of crushing lnde- I pendent companies. I "The government already has the ma Jchlnery to enforce this tax. Tobacco and 1 snuff manufacture in all forms is under complete government control. The power ; to tax to the point of destruction Is unquestioned. It Is summary, simple and irreslstabte. If It succeeds In this Una of manufacture it may succeed In oth er." . Senator Borah Introduced an'Tunend ment to the tariff bill which would bar from entry all goods manufactured wholly or In part by children under 11 years of age or by children under 10 j years of age who are required to work more than eight hours a day or more' than forty-eight hours a week. It would t nlicn har nil Imnnrti mnriA whnllv nr fn part by convict labor. Body of Late Alfred Austin is Cremated LONDON, June 6.

CANNOT GETJACHINE GUN Military Authorities Say Nebraska Has Full Quota. FLYNN'S RELATIVES MAY COME Benson Man Assures Department They Will Be Cared for, and Order for Release is Forthcoming. (From a Staff Correspondent.) . WASHINGTON June S. (Special Tel egram.) The War department cannot at this time furnish equipment to the Na tional Guard for a machine gun company, an ambulance corps and a type A signal corps, as requested by Adjutant General Phil Hall. One reason aslgned by Gen eral Mills of the division of the military affairs Is that no requlstlon has yet been made, which is a necessary requisite. Another reason Is that there are lnsuf flcent funds to the credit of Nebraska. ''Our records show that Nebraska has at the present time to Its credit $S,901.SS for equipment and camp purposes and $3,167.77 under section' 13 of the mllltla. law," said General Mills. "This does not Include $21,310.63 for the promotion of rifle practice, which cannot be used for the procurement of equip ment without special authority from the secretary of- war,- upon request of the governor. "It will not .be possible. In any event; to furnish the machine gun equipment, as the department is awaiting the issue of a perfect machine gun by the ord nance department, which it is hoped will take place in about six months. As to signal corps equipment, there are not sufficient funds on hand now, as It would cost about $20,000." General Mills said that Adjutant General Hall's statement that Nebraska had not had' Its Just share of equipment under the appropriation was "totally Inaccurate" and resented It. He said that the depart ment desired to co-operate in every way possible with the state mllltla, and would give due consideration to all requisitions for equipment or other aid. Release Plynn'a Relatives. The immigration authorities have agreed to release Delia and Richard Knight, relatives of P. J. Flynn of 'Benson, upon assurances from Mr. Flynn that the young people, particularly tho girl, will be properly educated and cared for. They were detained at Bills Island after arriving here from Ireland on the steamship "Cedrlc" because the .authorities were not advised that there were persons in this country who would support and care for them. Mr. Flynn took the matter up with Senator Hitch cock, who has been given the Informa tion that they will be released upon proper assurances from Mr. Flynn that he will comply with the requirements.

Request has been made upon the sec retary of agriculture that a weather sta tion be established at Union college near Lincoln. Lynn H. Wood of that Insti tution called upon Senator Hitchcock to day to make the request, and it Is to be urged upon the department. IMPORTATIONS OF GEMS BREAK ALL RECORDS NEW YORK.

WASHINGTON, JurM R.-NelUtcr the Standard Oil nor the tobacco trust has been actually dlssglved to meet tho re quirements of the Sherman law, accord Ing to the view of Attorney General McReynolds. When this became known today It wai taken a sa forecast of poeslble further action against the oil as welt as tht tobacco Interests If the results or the in vestigation Just completed by the Depart ment ot Justice of the workings ot tho. oil dissolution decrees Indicate that there Is a -problem which can still be dealt with 'under the Sherman law. The at torney general's complaint Is not against the Sherman law, but against the de crees of dissolution Interpreting the de cisions of the United Statos supreme court. He Is firmly convinced that no trust, as these two cases, can bo adequately dissolved by a pro rata distribution of the stock of Its disintegrated parts among the same stockholders who controlled the original combination. While each combination must be dealt with as a separate problem, officials point out that experience Indicates that disso lutions of. tho future must bo such that the control of dlslntcgregated trusts will pass Into now hands. It has been known that Mr. McRey nolds looked upon the tobacco dissolution as an ''obvious subterfuge," but It did not develop until today that he likewise placed the Standard Oil dissolution In the category of Inadequacy.
