INDIANS TELL OF FRAUD.
Testify They Filed on Land Because
They Got oney For It.
Omaha, Jan. 7. The most important
evidence brought out at the land trial
today was that of Harry A. Cloud, a full
blood Ogalallu Indian, a graduate of
Carlisle Indian school and a grand
nephew of the famous Sioux chief, Red
Cloud. His evidence was to the effect
that he had been solicited to make a
filing by W. C. Smoot, and that he
made the filing for the Modisettos at
Rushville, in consideration of $2i.
The other six witnesses today were
Indians. Their testimony was of a
similar character, and in effect that the
only reason they made the filings was
in consideration of the $25 which was
promised and paid them
they understood was given them from
Raisuli in Hot Battle.
Tangier, Morocco, Jan. 7. News
from Zinat is conflicting, that originat
ing from native sources stating that
the place has in-en shelled by artillery
and is half in ruins and that Raisuli
lias fied to the mountains. The same
source states that General Pagdadi,
chief of the Sultan's army, was wound
ed while leading an attack. Many
others are also reported wounded. It
is impossible at this time to determine
the actual results of the engagement.
The Anjcra tribesmen have joined the

Washington, Jan. 7. All the mem

SHIP MAY BE LOST
Life Rafts Hashed Ashore From
City of Panama.
BAD STORMS HAVE BEEN RAGING
Vessel Sailed From San Francisco on
December 31 for Ancon, on
Isthmus of I'anama,
San Francisco, Cal., January 5. A
dispatch to the Call from Santa Crux
says that a message received Into la-t
night from Waddell IVuch, on tho const
40 miles north of hero, sas that tho
Pacific Mail steamship City of Panama
has Ixvn wrecked and that most of tho
1 10 persons on Uvird are believed to
havo porishtvl. The message states
that four life rafts have been washed
ashore fully provisioned.
Tho City of Panama left San Fran
cisco on lVoomher 31 for Ancon, on
the isthmus of Panama.
Two of tho life rafts were found at
Waddell Ih-iicIi and two a few miles
farther south. All were plainly
marked "City of Panama." They con
tained stores such as are thrust into
boats which put off from wrecked
ships. One of the rafts contained a
box of crackers and a cask of water. In
tho boats were also found oars and
bouthooks. Two of the rafts were
lashed together with ropes.
Terrific storms have Ih'cii raging and
it is deemed impossible t hat any raits
which may lie atloat can survive the
storm. The impression ptovails that
everv one of the 00 passengers and 50
nienilH'rs of the crew who left San
Francisco has tverished.
It is lH'lieved that the Citv of Pana
ma encountered a severe storm shortly
after leaving San Francisco and that
she put out to sea. Hemming closer
to shore to cotit inue her trip to tin1
south, she met with another storm,
which rendered her helpless. Whether
she was torn to pieces bv tho gale or
driven on tho rocks is not known.
Pelow Waitilell lieaen wreckage is
drifting nslmre in vast quantities
Punchers are jmtrolling the shore
watching for Ixulies which may drift
ujnm the tieach.
S.m Francisco local mariners refuse
to believe that the Citv of Panama has
lieen wreckiil. Thev U-lievo she is in
distress in the storm and that her life
boats were washed overboard.
Government Will Appeal.
Washington, Jan. 5. The recent de
cisions by Judge Evans in the I'edural
court at Iouisville and by Judge Mo.
Cal! in the Federal "ourt at Memphis,
declaring unconstitutional tin- employ
ers' liability act passed at tho la-t ses
sion of congress, were brought to Presi
dent Roosevelt's attention today, and
the announcement was made at the
White House that the president will
direct that an npjw-al Is-taken. The
president is greatly interested in this
ad and earnestly recommended to con
gress that it U passed.

At Once on the Matter.
San Francisco, Jan. 5. Immediately
after the legislature convenes next
Monday the first step will ! taken to

An effort will also be made to re

business in California to make full
statements as to the securities they
hold and to require that they purchast
