SALT LAKE CITY, April 24. Superin
tendent George F. Bucher. of the Uintah
forest reserve, said tonUrht he had .heard
nothing of the reported discontent among
the Uintah Indians, but the trouble, If
any existed, had not been caused by the
leasing to sheepmen of Government lands.
The Indians themselves, according to Su
perintendent Bucher, have absolute con
trol over the lands of the reservation, and
are in the habit of leasing tracts to
sheepmen for grazing purposes. There
had been no leasing by the Government.

Remains of Lincoln Placed in the
New Monument at Springfield.
SPRINGFIELD, 111., April 24. Unos
tentatiously and without any ceremony,
the remains of Abrahaxai Lincoln and the
other members of his family, which,
j since March 10, 1900, when the work of
, rebuilding the Lincoln monument com
i menced, have been reposing in a tem-
t porary stone vault near the monument,
were this afternoon replaced in the crypt
in the monument which has been rebuilt
by the. State of Illinois, at a cost of $100,
000. The ceremony of returning the re
mains to the monument was witnessed
by Governor Tates and other state offi
cials, the members of the Lincoln Monu
ment Association, the surviving mem
bers of the Lincoln Guard of Honor,
Judge Humphrey, of the United States
District Court, and other Federal offi
cials, Mayor Phillips and other city offi
cials and probably 200 citizens who had
been advised of the intended removal. No
public announcement of the arrangements
for the ceremony had been made. The
temporary vault was so thoroughly ce
meted that it was 5 o'clock when the
work of removal commenced, when the
remains of the President, which were the
last to be removed, were finally placed
in the marble sarcophagus in the crypt
in the monument, where they were sealed
up and where they will probably remain
through all time. The casket was not
opened for the identification of the body
of the martyred President, as had been
expected, nor was even the leaden cas
ket exposed to view, it being covered by
a cedar casket. The remains which now
rest in the tomb of the monument are
those of President and Mrs. Lincoln, their
sons Willie, Thomas (Tad) and Eddie and
Abraham, son of Robert T. Lincoln.
The Lewis and Clark
Centennial, and
Decision Reached by the Oregon and
Washington Commissioners at a
D.Inner Given by Hon.
H. W. Corhett.
The official name of the great exposition
to be held in Portland in 1905, as decided
upon by the Oregon and Washington
commissioners, is:
The Lewis and Clark: Centennial,
American-Pacific Exposition.
Last evening Hon. H. W. Corbett, chair
man of the Oregon Centennial Commission,
gave a dinner at the Hotel Portland.
The object of the dinner was to confer
with the commissioners of the State of
Washington upon the adoption of a name
for the centennial celebration to be held
in 1905. There were present the following
gentlemen of the Washington commission:
Senator W. W. Tolman, of Spokane; Sen
ator E. M. Rands, of Vancouver; Colonel
F. J. Parker, of Walla Walla; Mr. G. W.
Rowan, of Castle Rock; Judge C. B. Bel
linger, of Portland; Mr. Edward Everett
Young, of Baker City; Mr. J. M. Long
and Mr. H. W. Scott, of Portland.
The dinner was Intended as an enter
tainment for the Washington commis
sioners, and it was understood that the
question of selecting of a name for the
centennial celebration of 1905 would be
taken up. At the close of the dinner Mr.
Corbett brought the main question to the
attention of the gentlemen assembled
around the board. He stated that the
occasion one of great historical
significance; that the co-operation of the
State of Washington was especially de
sired; and that care should be taken In
the selection of a name that would be
comprehensive, and at the same time sat
isfactory. Colonel Parker, chairman of the Wash
ington commission, arose and said that
at first he had not liked altogether the
idea of naming it the Oregon Centennial
Exposition, but that name had grown up
on him as he had thought of it. It would
be comprehensive and historical. It
would embrace the old Oregon country,
and. in his opinion, the whole of the old
Oregon country would unite in support
of, the name. He said he would like to
call upon Mr. Scott for his suggestion,
Mr. Scott said that he had given the
subject & good deal of attention, during
the past two or three months; that he
had asked for suggestions 'from, all quarr
ters and had' received many; that he .had
made several suggestions of his own, but
only' tentatively; that he thought a name
ought to be adopted which would unite
the whole of -the old Oregon country In
support of the centennial celebration, but
doubted whether, If a title were adopted
that might limit It in the popular mind
to Oregon as Oregon now exists, it would
be judicious. He therefore suggested that
the name should be The American-Pacific
Centennial Exposition. He would be par
tial to the name Oregon Centennial Ex
position, but he had doubts whether this
would be understood In its broadest his
torical sense. He did not wish to assume
the large responsibility that would be de
volved upon him in the selection of. the
name, but was willing "to defer to the
opinion of others, especially to the opinion
of the gentlemen from the State of Wash
ington, for the co-operation of that state,
both locally and In a National sense, was
absolutely necessary tp the success of the
centennial celebration.
Mr. Rands, of Washington, said that he
lived near the State of Oregon, once lived
in the State of Oregon, and would gladly
co-operate in celebration of this centen
nial under any name, but he thought
that the Lewis and Clark Exposition
ought to be brought prominently forward.
Judge Bellinger and Mr. Young coincided
In this .view.
Mr. Young therefore proposed that this
name be adopted: "American-Pacific Ex
position and Lewis and Clark Centen
nial." Senator Tolman, of Spokane, said this
would be an ideal name, only he proposed
that the terms be reversed and that it
be called: "The Lewis and Clark Centen
nial, and American-Pacific Exposition;"
the whole to be surmounted with the le
gend to go upon all the literature, both as
a motto and a trademark, "Where Rolls
the Oregon."
Mr. Corbett said he wa,s glad to accept
this as a most happy emendation.
Mr. Rowan, of the Washington commis
sion, spoke to the same effect.
Upon motion of Judge Bellinger, the
name as amended by the suggestion of
Senator Tolman was adopted by a
unanimous vote.
This Is but an outline of the discus
sion of the evening, which covered a wide
range as to the details of the early history
of the Oregon country.
A motion was made that Mr. Scott be
thanked for the Interest he had taken In
the subject and for- suggestion of the
name. He said that his modesty would
compel him to disclaim the authorship of
the name, though he accepted it as ad
mirable; for he had asked others for sug
gestion of names, and had himself sug
gested several with numerous variations.
He had only wished to take counsel with
others for adoption of the most expressive
and significant name.
This morning, Mr. Corbett and Mr".
Long will show the Washington commis
sioners through City View Park and Its
surroundings, the place deemed, on the
whole, best adapted for the celebration
and exposition. ' '
Washington Commission Organize.
The Washington commission met at the
Imperial Hotel yesterday, and perfected
permanent organization by electing Frank
J. Parker, of Walla Walla, president:
J. G. Megler, of Brookfield, treasurer, and
George W. Rowan, of Castle Rock, secre
tary. At 3:30 P. M. the Oregon and Washing
ton commissions met in the parlors of
the First National Bank for an informal
discussion of matters relating to the
fair. Oregpn was represented by H. W,
Corbett, C. B. Bellinger, Edward Everett
Young, and W. S. Dunlway, secretary.
The Washington commissioners were Par
ker and Rowan, W. W. Tolman, of Spo-
lkane, and E. M. Rands, of Vancouver.
Chairman Corbett, of the Oregon com
imissfon, who presided, said the purpose
'of the meeting was to give the represen
tatives of the two states an opportunity
'to become acquainted.
City Attorney Long, who was present In
behalf of the provisional organization
having charge of the preliminaries of the
fair, told of his recent visit to Victoria
and his conference with Ministers of the
British Columbia Government. He said
the sentiment among the Britishers Is that
the fair should have a name; which should
show the Pacific Coast to have a com
mon Interest lrV' its success. In British
Columbia, as irf Oregon, Washington and
California, the opinion is that the fair
should show that the Pacific Coast is the
gateway to the Orient.
"At the same time," said Chairman
Corbett, "we cannot ignore the fact that
the fair will commemorate the one hun
dredth anniversary of the (Lewis and Clark
Senator Tolman said he could not see
wherein the people of British Columbia
could obeject to the name Lewis and
Clark. "Tne great expedition of Lewis
and Clark," he said, "was the taking pos
session of this country by the English
speaking, race. It opened up what is
now known as British Columbia, as well
as what are now the Pacific States of the
American Union. If some designation Is
required to emphasize the Oriental trade
feature, we can put In our literature and
letterheads some- such thing as 'Wilder
ness la 1S05: Gateway to the Orient in
TW3,' and leaythe name stand, as it
ought to. a commemoration of the Lewis
and Clark expedition."
Judge Bellinger said the territorial gov
ernment of Oregon was organized by Eng
lishmen as well as Americans, a unique
circumstance in the history of govern
ment. "This shows the bond," he said,
"that binds the Anglo-Saxon people. I
am opposed to giving too much promi
nence to the word 'Oregon," in the title.
Oregon once stood for f vast stretch of
territory in the West, but It Is now the
name of a state, and Is Very much local
ized." In a general conversation which fol
lowed the Washington commissioners as
sured the Oregon commissioners of the
great Interest of the State of Washington
in the fair. They said they felt that the
fair would be as much for their benefit as
for Oregon's. Chairman Parked said he
had plenty of time at his disposal, and
should be glad to perform any service
asked of him. Chairman Corbett thanked
the Washingtonians in behalf of the Ore
gon commission.
Secretary Dunlway was instructed to
correspond with the governments of the
various states and. British Columbia,
whlchhave appointed commissions for
the 1903 fair, wilh a view to holding a
convention of such commissions in Port
land at a date to be fixed later. At this
convention each of the state commissions
will be asked to name two members of the
executive committee, which will take
charge of a great deal of the work of
the fair.
Undoing the Work of the Pence Com
missioner at Peliin.
PEKIN, April 24. The international de
tachment of 800 men under Colonel Rad
ford, which left Shan Hal Kwan to pun
ish the force of Boxers and robbers that
recently attacked the Indian troops, kill
ing Major Browning, met the enemy in
force, klling 50. Of the international de
tachment, six British, two Japanese and
one Frenchman we're killed. The enemy
fled to the mountains, but will be closely
pursued. The body of Major Browning
was recovered.
The Germans have been ordered back
front the PaoTjng Fu expedition. Their
behavior for the l&st week or so has
paused great. Jjfulgpailon inPekln, not
only among the, Chinese. butamong tne
foreigners as well. Carts, horses, mules
arid ponies have been impressed for trans
portation purposes, coolies have been
made to work for nothing, and even edu
cated Chinese have been Impressed. A
contractor working for an American
Quartermaster, was Impressed while at
work, and was only released on proof that
he was working for the Americans. An
employe of the British Legation had a
similar experience. Mr. Hlllier, manager
of the bank, was stopped and, made to
prove his ownership of a cart. The Chi
nese say there is Intense feeling In the
province against the foreigners, princi
pally because of the harsh treatment the
Chinese have received from the Germans.
They also assert that the needless expe
ditions of Germans against perfectly quiet
communities haVe caused many Chinese,
who have lost all, to join roving bands
of robbers.
Dispnte Over the Gate.
WASHINGTON. April 24. Nothing is
known here officially of the reported Is
sue between General Chaffee and Count
von Waldersee as to the possession of
the gate to the Forbidden City now held
by the American troops. On one hand it
Is suggested that this particular gateway
may give access to the place selected by
Minister Rockhill and Mr. Squires for the
future American Legation. On the other
hand. It Is recalled that the American
troops were the first to possess themselves
of this gate and General Chaffee may feel
It to be his duty, when he relinquishes
his position, to turn it over to the Chinese,
its original possessors. No one . here Is
aware of any special title In this property
possessed by the Germans. The fact that
the matter has not yet been made the
subject of an official report inclines the
officials 'here to the belief that it can be
adjusted directly In Pekln and may not
assume serious proportions.

Or Abandon the New War Tax on
LONDON, April 25. The date of Lord
Salisbury's return to London from the
Riviera is still problematical and the ru
mors of cabinet trouble over the budget
are assuming greater consistency in the
the Oregon"
lobbies of Parliament. According to the
Daily Mail, the framing of the budget
revealed considerable dissension. Mr.
Chamberlain wanted the whole cost of
the war raised on the credit of the South
African Colonies, and had schemes of his
own for providing the Interest on the
loan and the Increase of normal expendi
ture. To these schemes, however, with
the exception of the coal duty. Sir
Michael Hicks-Beach turned a deaf ear,
and on being pressed he offered to re
sign. Mr. Chamberjain, according to the
Dally Mall, favored the resignation, but
Lord Salisbury and Mr. Balfour strongly
opposed it.
Now it is said that although at first
Sir Michael Hicks-Beach did not advo
cate a coal tax, he now declines to drop
it, thinking his reputation would suffer,
now that he Is committed to it. He has,
however, agreed to give careful consid
eration to the alternative nrooosal to
substitute an ad valorem duty on a basis
of eight pence or nine pence on Inferior
coal, rising to IS pence on the best Welsh
coal. While jthls -Would mollify the
Northern colliery owners. It would In
tensify the opposition from Wales and
belief prevails that the upshot will be
cither the abandonment of the tax alto
gether or the resignation of the ministry.
Mr. Chamberlain Is credited with urg
ing the latter course with the double
object of getting rid of Sir Michael Hicks
Beach, whose plain speaking regarding
the deplorable financial consequences of
the war offends him. and of proving to
the country that there Is no alternative
government, as the opposition would, un
der existing conditions, decline the task
of forming a cabinet. According to lobby
gossip this expedient would pull the Con
servative party together and kill the op
position withlndts ranks to the necessary
financial expedients.

the War Department, Explained
the General Sitnation on
the Island.
WASHINGTON, April 24. The commis
sion of five delegates from the Cuban con
stitutional convention, consisting of Dom
ingo Mendes Capote, Pedro E. Betancourt,
Rafael M. Portuondo Diego Tamayo and
Pedro Gonzales, Llorente, which was sent
to Washington to confer with the Presi
dent .regarding Cuban relations with this
country, arrived here this morning., to
gether with an interpreter and represen
tatives of the Havana press. The mem
bers were met at the station by Assistant
Secretary of State Hill. Assistant Secre
tary of War Sanger, Captain Sawtelle and
Lieutenant Overton of the United States

corted to the Shoreham.
The delegates conversed with the recep
tion committee through an Interpreter,

well. It was stated that arrangements
for their visit to the President will bo
made through the War Department.
Governor Wood, of Cuba, also arrived
this morning with his family and took
apartments at the Richmond. He sent
his secretary to call on the Cuban delega
tion to ascertain their desires for the
day In order that he might be able to act
as their escort, either to the White House
or the War Department.
The delegates remained at their hotel
most of the morning. When Inquiry was
made of Mr. Tamayo as to the plans of
the party, he answered that the delega
tion felt It would be discourteous to
enter upon a discussion of their business
before they had called on the Secretary
of War. Arrangements have been made
at the War Department by which the
Secretary of War will receive the delega
tion at 11 o'clock tomorrow morning, anil
probably escort them, to the White House
about that time.

partment shortly after 8 o'clock, and after
a brief talk with Adjutant-General Cor
bln was shown Into Secretary Root's of

ban affairs was held. Senator Piatt, of
Connecticut, chairman of the committee
charged with the care of Cuban affairs,
was present, as also were Assistant Sec
retary Sanger and Admiral Bradford.
Chief of the Bureau of Equipment, Navy
Department, The latter's presence was
desired, as the location of coaling sta
tions In Cuba is to ha made upon hj3
recommendation. After a conference last
ing for more than three hours Secretary
