THE DALLES, OREGON, MONDAY, MARCH 11, 1895
NEW NATIONAL PARTY
Quite a Gathering of Prom
inent Silver Men.
ANXIOUS TO CONTROL A PAPER
Tbey Are Said to Be Xefrotiatlnff for One
-That They Might Boom Their
Presidential . Candidate.
New Yokk, March 9. A story came to
this city today from Washington that
certain men, prominent in the silver
states ot the West, were negotiating for
the purchase of a morning newspaper in
this city, with a view to booming a silver
man for the next nomination for the
presidency. It was considered signifi
cant that a number of United States
senators from the silver states have ai
rived in the citv within the past few
days. Senator Edward O. Wolcott, of
Colorado, has been at the Holland house
since Thursday night, and Senators
Francis E. Warren, of Wyoming; Wil
liam Bate, of Tennessee, and Pettigrew,
of South Dakota, and ex-Senator Thomas
C. Power ot Montana, are domiciled at
the Fifth-Avenue hotel. Senator Wol
cott could not be found at the Holland
house this morning. At the Fifth
Avenue, Senator Warren was seen.
When asked about the story, he eaid :
"I am here on purely personal" busi
ness, and have not heard the slightest
rumor that the silver men intend to buy
a New York newspaper. Our people in
Wyoming look to the next congress to
settle the financial question in a way to
unite and satisfy the whole country.
Perhaps we may get an international
agreement establishing the ratio of silver
to gold, or the problem may be worked
out in some other way here at home.
The question is one that will not down,
and must be settled before we have the
free exchange between all parts of the
country which alone can bring renewed
prosperity. The present administration
has been simply imbecile in its treat
ment of the financial question. It prom
ised us that if the Sherman act were re
pealed, immediate improvement would
be felt. The condition of the country
has grown worse, instead of better, and
the last congress and the administration
stand on record as having deceived the
country in a game of bunco.
Senator Pettigrew and Bate and Ex
Senator Power also denied any knowl
edge of the story.

Pendleton, Or., March 9. Troop A,
of the Fourth cavalry, from Walla Walla,
arrived here at 8 o'clock this evening, on
a special train, and will be taken, with
out delay, to Mission station, on the res
ervation, from which point it will pro
ceed to the agency, which is near the
station. Indian Agent Harper had been
notified from Washington that troops
were held in readiness at Walla Walla,
but kept his counsel, saying nothing
until about time for the arrival of the
train, when he gave out information that
he had requested that they come. He
alleges it may be necessary, in order to
protect the agency and the whites who
live on the reservation, to have the sol
diers at band.
This afternoon Judge Fee, of the cir
cuit court, rendered a decision in the
habeas corpus case. It declares that the
Indians are citizens, and under the
Dawes act entitled to all rights, privi
leges and immunities of other citizens,
except as to the power to alienate tbeir
allotted lands on the reservation, title to
which was transferred subject to the
trusteeship of the United States govern
ment. The release of No Shirt and
Young Chief was also ordered. Counsel
for the Indian court will appeal in this
and in another case, pending. The In
dians' counsel were seen, and said they

bad told the Indiana they must not re
sort to violence in any event, but go
about quietly and await the final su
preme court decisions. This the Indians
promised to do, and the head men
asserted they would use tneir influence
to prevent any disturbance.' There is no
danger, in the opinion of every one here,
unless the Indians get drunk and become
involved in trouble with the Indian
policement-rT.''''' ' '
Washington, March 9. The secretary
of the interior has requested the secre
tary of war to send troops from Walla
Walla to the Umatilla reservation, if
the agent there makes a request. By
telegraph, Agent Harper advised the in
terior department, from Pendleton, Or;,
that Judge Fee upholds his decision in
the habeas corpus case of No Shirt and
Young Chief, Umatilla Indians, and if
they were released he feared trouble.
The agent did not state what the diffi
culty was with the Indians. '
Walla. Walla. March 9. Actine ud-
on orders from headquarters, troop D,
Fourth cavalry, officered by Captain J.
R. Richards and Lieutenant H. S. Haw
kins; with 40 men, left by special train
at 6 o'clock this evening, for the Uma
Compensation for Transportion to Be
Paid Branch Lines.
Washington, March 9. Secretary
Carlisle today issued an order directing
that hereafter all compensation for mail
and other services rendered the govern
ment by certain nonaided or leased
lines of the Union Pacific shall be paid
the receivers of the respective compa
nies, instead of being applied, as hereto
fore, to the sinking fund and the bond
and interest account of the Union Pa
cific. This action is based upon the de
cisions of the courts, and the showing
made that these roads are not under the
control of the Union Pacific, and that
the retention of the compensation earned
is illegal. None of the payments au
thorized are to be made except on the
filing with the treasury department of a
properly certified order of the court ap
pointing the person or persons named
in the said order, receiver or receivers of
the said companies. This order is to
apply to all payments for compensation
for services rendered since the appoint
ment of said receivers, and which have,
heretofore, been withheld, awaiting the
action of the treasury department, and
to all future payments to the respective
companies until further ordered. .
No More Patents to Be Jssned.
Washington, March 9. Secretary
Smith has determined that no more pat
ents for land granted the subsidized rail
roads shall be issued until there has
been a. settlement of the debt due the
government from these roads. An at
tempt was made to get a resolution to
this effect through congress, but it
failed. As soon as the resolution was
presented, Commissioner Lamoreaux, of
the general land office, immediately sus
pended work upon the preparation of
lists of lands within the grants, and none
were sent to the secretary for approval
while the resolution was pending. Aft
erward, when congress adjourned, the
commissioner felt compelled to go ahead
with the patenting of lands to the Union
Pacific and Central Pacific, but with the
announcement of the secretary that he
will not approve further patents to these
roads, work was again suspended. Sec
retary Smith will soon make an order to
that effect, and give reasons for such ac
tion. He says that he thinks it just
that no more patents should be granted
when the roads owe the government
such large sums. It has been stated
that a suit for mandamus, to compel the
secretary to continue patents, will be
brought by the railroads. When this
was suggested to Secretary Smith today,
he . said it would -be time enough to be
gin work on the patents when the courts
granted ' such mandamus. The lands
affected are within the grants to the
Union Pacific and the Central Pacific
between Omaha and Sacramento. It is
also thought the lands within the grants

Situation at Hot Springs Said to Be
Much Worse Than Reported.
Jacksonville, Fla., March 9. A let
ter received by R. W. Adams, of ttiis
city, from a relative at Hot Springs,
Ark., states that the smallpox epidemic
in that place is much worse than the
newspapers reports would indicate. The
letter says that n t a newspapers in Hot
Springs dares to publish the truth about
the situation, for the publishers were
told that if they printed the truth the
papers would be burned and the offices
wrecked. Correspondents for outside
papers have been similarly intimidated.
The letter discribes the situation at the
famous resort as harrowing in the ex
treme. Many are dying daily, and new
cases are being constantly reported.
The hospitals are crowded, and doctors
and nurses are unable to give proper at
tention to the patients.
