They Will Attempt to Prevent Shatter's
Army Staying at Montauk Point
A Legal Contest Likely.
Nicw Yoke, Aug. 6. The Times says:
There is a likelihood of a legal contest
growing out of the establishment of the
new camp at Montauk Point. Scott and
Treadwell, of this city, attorneys for
the Montauk tribe of Indians, has eerved
notice on United States attorney Griggs
that they. claim ownership of the land,
and protest against dealings for posses
sion of the point by the United States
government with the Long Island Kail
FormerJudgeScott eaid last night that
the notice was served because his clients
did not wish to be held guilty of laches
by Tailure to assert their right at all
times whon their rights were ignored.
"If the United States government
fails to recognize the rights of the In
dians," Judge Scott said, "proper pro
ceedings will bo lnetituted to compel it
to do so. The railroad has no title to
this land, has been from the beginning
a trespasser, and so will be the govern
ment also if it occupies any part of Mon
tauk Point covered by the claim of the
Indians, unless the occupancy is author
ized bv the Montauk tribe."

Deafness Cannot ba.Cared
by local applications, as they cannot
reach the diseased portion of the ear.
There is only one way to cure deafness,
and that is by constitutional remedies.
Deafness is caused by an inflamed con
dition of the mucous lining of the Eus
tachian Tube. When this tube is in
flamed you have a rumbling sound or
imperfect hearing, and when it is en
tirely closed, Deafness is the result, and
unless the inflammation can be taken
out and this tube restored to its normal
condition, hearing will be destroyed for
ever; ninecasis out of ten are caused
by catarrh, which is nothing but an in
flamed condition of the mucous sur
faces. We will give One Hundred Dollars foe

that cannot be' cured by Hall's CatarrU
Cure. Send for circulars ; free.
