Such was the decision of the supreme court Land Claim Titles in West. Titles to many land claims In the deserts of the west were affected by a decision of the court holding that desert land entrynien obtain "rights by entry which may be assigned." The court said that It would accept the interpretation of the Interior de partment in many cases before It to the effect that the entries were as signable. Rights of Indians. Three centuries of civilization have not brought the full-blood Indian to the point where his rights are equal to those of the white man. Such was the decision of the supreme court in holding constitutional the 25-year re strictions on the sale of Indian lands. The court went so far as to hold that under the 25-year restriction on the sale of Indian land, the govern ment could restrict the taking of in toxicating liquors upon such land of ar. Indian. This holding was made in reply to a question of law from the United States circuit court of appeals for the Eighth circuit, as to whether Samuel Hallowell, an Omaha Indian, at vari ous times a justice of the peace, as as sessor and school director, had violat ed the regulations of the government against introducing liquor into Indian country when he took a half gallon of whisky onto his own land in Nebraska, which was subject to the 25-year re striction.

The Kansas Natural Gas company built a pipe line right up to the Okla homa-Kansas state line.

ARBITRATION IN PROSPECT Tentative Drafts Are Handed to Am bassadors.—Settlement of All Disputes Between Nations Is Provided. Washington, D. C. The principle of arbitration of practically all dis putes between nations, Including even questions of vital interest and na tional honor, assumed vitality when Secretary of State Knox submitted to the British and French ambassadors at Washington the draft of a conven tion to serve aB a basis of negotia tions. The fact that this world move ment would he inaugurated with France, as well as Great Britain, came as a surprise, as it was generally un derstood that only the United States and England were concerned in the initial steps. When President Taft last December enunciated the doctrine of comprehen sive arbitration he received a quick response from Ambassadors Bryce and Jusserand that Great Britain and France were willing to begin negotia tions with this country for the peace ful settlement of practically all difler ences that may arise. The president instructed Secretary Knox immediate ly to crystalize the arbitral proposi tion which this government would offer to foreign nations. The secretary has evolved a docu ment which has received the approval of the president and the other mem bers of his cabinet, providing that all differences which are internationally justiciable shall be submitted to ar bitration. It expands the scope of the existing arbitration treaties by eliminating the exceptions referring to "questions of vital Interest and national honor." This elimination is the real accom plishment of the' proposed treaty. The exceptions mentioned are found in ar bitration treaties the world over and have constituted the chief obstacle to the application of the arbitration prin ciple, for it is hard to conceive of a problem which in its essence cannot be regarded as having a controlling bearing upon "national honor" or "vi tal interest." Recognizing that there may be ques tions of policy and other matters like ly to force nations to the brink of war but which no people would be willing to arbitrate, the tentative draft of the treaty provides that differences that either party consider within this category shall be referred to a com mission of inquiry empowered to make recommendations for their settlement. In this connection the treaty will take another advanced step by binding the disputants to arbitration in case the commission of inquiry declares that the controversy shall be arbitrated. Arbitration in all caaea will be a last resort. After the two countries have concluded that it is Impossible to settle a dispute through diplomatic interchange the question will be sub mitted to a commission in Inquiry charged with the office of suggesting a way to avoid arbitration if possible. Should the commission decide that the difference should be arbitrated, this decision is to be binding. The submission of the drafts to Great Britain and France marks the actual beginning of negotiations. The foreign offices of the two countries will now make an exhaustive examina tion of the American proposition with a view to suggesting modifications or additions. It is the desire of the ad ministration to complete the .negotia tions, if possible, In time for submis sion to the senate before the adjourn ment of the present session of con gress.'

Springfield, Illinois.—Thn report of the Helm senatorial committee ap pointed for the purpose of investigat ing the circumstances surrounding the election of William Lorimer to the United States Senate, was returned to the senate. The two most vital points in the report are: A criticism of Judge Petit for his ruling in the habeas corpus case, in volving Edward Tilden, Cummings and Mitchell, and this expression: "Your committee has reached the conclusion that the election of Sena tor Lorimer before the last general assembly would not have occurred had it not been for bribery and corrup tion." The committee also touches on the so-called "jackpot" episode, but de clares that so long as no person pub licly connected with that matter is any longer a member of the senate, no recommendation is made. No attempt is made in the committee's report to recommend the reopening of the Lori mer investigation by the United States senate or the unseating of members of the Illinois legislature charged with bribery and corruption. WOOL SCHEDULE A PUZZLER. Ways and Means Committee Debates Free List or Revenue Taxes. Washington, D. C. Democratic members of the ways and means com mittee of the house undertook the task of redrafting a bill revising the wool schedule. The committee de bated for three hours without attempt ing to reach a decision as to whether the bill should place raw wool on the free list or reduce the tariff 50 per cent or more. The paramount issue in revising the r.chedule is revenue. To put raw wool on the free list would cut off at once $21,000,000 in revenue, while the entire wool schedule brings a revenue of more than $40,000,000. By cutting the duty on raw wool to 5 or 6 cents a pound and making provision.for a slid ing reduction annually of 1 cent, some Democrats are figuring that the Im portations would increase sufficiently to cause no disturbance in the gov. eminent exchequer. VOTE SOON ON RECIPROCITY. Senator Stone to Press for Action Committee Hearings Near End. Washington, D. C. Senator Stone of Missouri, announced to the sen ate finance committee at the hear ing on the reciprocity and free list bills that he would soon press for a vote on reciprocity.

Senator Penrose, chairman of the committee, expressed the belief that the reciprocity bill hearings would end soon. A delegation of about 20 Detroit business men, headed by President Milton A. McRae, of the Detroit board of commerce, are here to stimulate sentiment in favor of the reciprocity treaty.' j.'

MASSACRE TALK FINDING OF BODY IN RUSSIA CRE ATE8 TALK OF "RITUAL MURDER." BODY HIDDEN IN A CAVE Hebrew Lawyer at St. Petersburp Tries to Allay Anxiety.— American Jews Fear Attack. fit. Petersburg, Russia.—The serious situation which has arisen through the threatening massacre of Jews at Kiev, following the finding of the body of a boy under such circumstances as to raise the cry of a "ritual murder," has aroused the authorities in their en deavors to solve the mystery of the boy's death. Meanwhile anti-Jewish newspapers admit the reports on which the agitation is based for the most part are not worthy of credence. M. Sllosberg, a leading Jewish law yer, exhaustively reviewed the his tory of the question of ritualistic mur der, as contained in the records of the courts of Russian and abroad. He said that hardly a year passes without a revival of the old myth about the Easter time in connection with the temporary disappearance of a boy or a girl, or in connection with some nn traced murder. The ignorant become excited and their excitement lasts un til the case is cleared up. In the majority of cases ft was shown that no murder had been com mitted and In the remainder the murder, was traced to the culpable agents and it was proved that Jews had no connection with them. Only two case of ritual murder in the last 40 years, he said, warranted investi gation by the courts, and in these in stances the verdict was acquittal for the adherents of the Jewish faith who had been arrested. M. Sliosberg said that in the pres ent case, the killing of the boy, Yusho hlnsky, no information was available. The investigation had yielded no re sults, or the results were not ready for publication. All that could be said was that no Jew had yet been ar rested or was implicated. It was suspected, when the body was found in a cave near a Jewish quarter, that the Jewish sect Hassides, which is alleged to forbid the burial of ritualistic victims, may have had some knowledge of the case. With respect to the Hassides, Sliosberg said that the Jews of Russia are di vided into two classes, the Hassides, meaning pious, and the Masnakdfn. meaning opponentn. The two exist side by side. Adherence to either sect depends upon the temperament of individuals or communities. The Hassides are mystically inclined and acknowledge spiritual leaders call ed Zadyk. The Musnakdlm formal ists are strictly disciplined. They deny the intermediary spiritual func tions of the rabbi. The use of blood Is equally abhorrent to both denomin ations. Massacre Feared. New York, May 19.—The American Jewish committee, when asked by the Associated Press for its views respect ing the recent dispatches from Kiev, authorized the following statement: "The committee is satisfied that only a wide publicity can avert a re currence of the horrible massacres instigated by the Russian govern ment which took place between 1903 and 1906, especially at Klshineff, Odes 8a and Blalystok, when thousands of Jews were foully massacred and mil lions of property destroyed. "The monstrous and infamous stor ies recently sent out by the Russian government from St. Petersburg, Kiev, and Moscow, and published in Ameri can newspapers, respecting the alleged murder of a boy at Kiev, are precisely similar to the unfounded tales circu lated by the Russian government pre vious to the Kishtneff-Odessa pogrom. "Investigation shows that the stor ies which have been sent out to American newspapers are founded upon baseless calumnies which ap peared several weeks ago In the well known anti-Semitic and reactionary organs. "The Russian government has al- ways resorted to massacres of Jews whenever the political situation was one of great tenseness and had re peatedly utilized this method to pro vide an outlet for the pent-up feelings of her excited populace. The gov ernment, by the use of the soldiery, the police and the administrative offi cials, has always Instigated and di rected the massacres at such times. "There Is a similar condition at the present moment, and unleaB the widest publicity is given to the villlanles which the Russian government never hesitates to perpetrate in order to serve her own purposes, the world is likely to see a repetition at any time •f the indescribably horrible scenes "Web are for the present held in abey ance by the Russian government."
