Will Be DIMcult to Secure Passage of Billi
Opening Them to Settlement
Washington, May 7. It is going to
be difficult to secure the passage of the
bills now pending before congress pro
viding for opening to settlement por
tions of the several Indian reservations
of the West, unless the friends of these
measures will consent to the insertion
in the bills of a provision requiring
that settlers taking up the ceded lands
are to repay the government the price
per acre paid to the Indians. There
are 10 or 12 bills of this character in
volving large amounts of land and call
ing for a considerable appropriation in
the aggregate. Among them is the bill
tor opening the Klamath reservation,
in Oregon, and others in the several
When a bill was under consideration
in the senate the other day to open the
unceded portion of the Rosebud reser
vation, in South Dakota, Senator Piatt,
of Connecticut, expreHsed a very de-
ided opposition to the bill unless it
was amended to require the settlers to
pay the purchase price of the land.
Other senators contended that after the
passage of the free homes bill a few
years ago it would bo unfair to insert
such a provision in this or any other
similar bill, but the Connecticut sen
ator remained firm. He said the gov
ernment would not think of going into
an Eastern state and purchasing land
from farmers, with the view of turning
around and throwing it open to home
stead settlement. Nor would the gov
ernment undertake to buv land from
Bettlers whose holdings adjoin Indian
reservations, and turn about and offer
that land to settlers free of cost. He
said there was no more reason for buy
ing Indian lands at $1.50 to f 2.50 and
even $b an acre, and allowing it to be
taken up by homesteaders without cont.
Such a policy, he contended, would in
volve the government in great expendi
tures, probably $50,000,000 or more in
the end, and he did not believe such an
outlay was warranted or justified.
A number of other Eastern senators
agree with Mr. Piatt in his contentions
and may abolish the practice of the
government buying the Indians' lands
and throwing them ojen free of cost to
CORRIGAN IS DEAD.
Noted Archbishop Passu Peacefully Away In
New York City.
New York, May 7. Archbinhop
Michael Augustin Corrigan died at
11:05 last night, aged 62 years. The
death of the archbishop came as a great
surprise and shock to those in the
arcliepiscopal residence. It was mote
so to the general public, for the last
bulletin of the day was that so cer
tain were the physicians of an im
provement of the patient that there
would be no more bulletins that night.
Up to 10:30 there was no evidence of
collapse; in fact, the archbishop talked
with his secretary. About 11 o clock,
however, the trained nurse at- the bed
side noticed a change. Acting on in
structions, the physicians were tele
phoned for. At the same time, the
archbishop's two brothers were sum
moned to the room, as well as a num
ber of priests. It was quickly seen by
the physicians that the end was at
hand, and in less than a quarter of an
hour the prelate was dead. His last
moments were peaceful and without
evidence of suffering. Besides the two
brothers of the archbishop, there were
present in the room a dozen priests,
among them being some of the most
prominent in Amreica.
STORM AT ST. LOUIS.
Machine Shopi and Section of a Foundry
Destroyed by Fire from Lightning
St. Louis, May 7. For a short time
in the afternoon a terrific storm of
wind and rain prevailed in this city
and vicinity, causing much damage.
Lightning resulted in several fires, one
of which destroyed the machine shops
and a section of the foundry of William
and Phillip Medarts' patent pulley
plant in South St. Louis. The loss is
estimated at $300,000. In all parts of
the city trees, fences, signs, awnings,
etc., were blown down and other dam
age done by the wind, which came in
terrific gusts. As far as learned, no
body was killed or injured. For one
minute this afternoon the wind reached
a velocity of 65 miles an hour, and for
the five succeeding minutes it clew at
the rate of 62 miles an hour, after
which it moderated.
In the down town district the wind
carried away immense signB, throwing
them into the streets and breaking
plate glass windows in several of the
large stores. Of the crowds on the
streets at the time many had narrow
escapes from death and injury.
Morot Attempt to Escape.
Manila, Mav 7. Eighty-four Moro
prisoners under guard made an at
tempt to escape during the day. At a
preconcerted signal they got between
the soldiers forming the guard and a
company at dinner. The latter, real
izing what hail happened, tired on and
pursued the Morns, killing 35 of them
and capturing 9. The other fugitives
Potter Palmer Dead.
Chicago, May 7. Potter Palmer, for
nearly half a century one of Chicago's
most prominent business men, it dead
at his residence on Lake Shore drive.
When he retired Saturday night he
was feeling, if anything, better than
for several days. During the night,
however, he seemed to lose all his en
ergy, and in the morning was unable
to leave his room. He gradually grew
weaker during the day and at 5:40
o'clock in the evening he died.
Wreck ia Pennsylvania,
Connellsville, Ta., May 7. Two per
sons were killed and 45 injured, three
fatally, in a head-on collision between

near Rockwood, on the Baltimore A

the baggage car and three coaches next
were almost demolished. Almost
every occupant was cut and broised by
the shower of broken glass and num
ber were pini ned beneath the r reek
age. Fire started several times, but
was extinguished before any damage

Officer and Men Fall la Gallant Fight With
Washintgon, 6. The war depart
ment has received a cablegram from
General Chaffee, which says:
'Following is the substance of Brig
adier General George W. Davis' mes
sage from Bayan:
"Eighty-four survivors Bayan Bur-
rendered unconditionally this morning
at 7 o'colck. Sultan Bayan, Raja
Mnnda Bayan, Sultan Randapatan and
all leading Dattos dead and many of
their followers. Assault on the princi
pal fort, which surrendered last night,
one of the most gallant performances of
American arms. Colonel Frank D.
Baldwin and his regiment deserve all
praise for hand-to-hand struggle in
four lines of ditches under walls of
fort. These tren-hes are lined with
Moro dead from rifle fire. Have never
seen or heard of any performance ex
celling this gallant fight.
It is my painful duty to report
that the overthrow of Moro power
was not accomplished without severe
loss. One officer and seven enlisted
men killed; four officers and thirty
enlisted men Hounded. Will telegraph
'"After 84 survivors marched out this
morning as prisoners and was under
stood they were all, eight others, who
had concealed themselves in rubbish
inside the fort, made a break for lib
erty, but did not succeed. Some Moro
wounded tried to stab soldiers trying to
help them. It is impossible to state
number of Moros killed, many lying in
tall grass. 'Ihe surrender saves us from
siege and starving out. Intend to re
tain prisoners until two or three small
adjacent forts occupied, then will con
sent to their telease, holding as host
ages eight or ten of .the principals, and
release the others.
'The force in line of advance consist
ed of four mountain gun", 470 rifles.
This fully sufficient. Could not have
used more men advantageously. Had
we Bent strong column it would only
have swelled casualty list. One neigh
boring Datto has already1 represent' d
himself as a friend, and I expect a
general coming in shortly, when the
weight of the blow is known. The
dead sent to Malabang for burial.
"In light of present knowledge could
have besieged the principal fort, and
in time forced the surrender, but that
would probably have resulted in a sortie
for freedom, and escape for many. By
attacking them they have been com
pletely crushed the only kind of les
son these wild Morog seem to be able
to profit by. Shall invite Sultan Tar
lac to pay me a friendly visit; if he
does not tell us of his initiative. Has
fort further east in plain sight, and of
same strength as Bayan, on beautiful

action very important, namely, it se
cures respect for United States author

the petition respecting any charge of
conspiracy, and respecting the purposes
of the organization of the Securities
Company. Instead of owning a ma
jority of the shares of the Great North
ern or Northern Pacific Companies, it
is stated that thise who are interested
in the organization company do not
own within $2(1,000,000 of a majority
of the Great Northern ehares, and lit
tle more than one-quarter of the North
ern Pacific. It is stated that the Se
curities Company has acquired by
transfer on the Gieat Northern books
about five-twelfths of that company's
stock, has negotiated for about four
twelfths of the total of such stock,
which has not been transferred, and as
to which it has at present i;o voting
power, and has laid on account of
Great Northern and Northern Pacific
shares purchased over $40,000,000 in
cash; that many rtockholders have not
sold, and may not sell shares, and that
neither company, by any act or sugges
tion, has solicited shareholders to sell
to the Securities Company.
In the second part of the answer
the purchase of the Chicago, Burling
ton & Quincy Railway Company i
taken up, the reasons for such pur
chase having been, it ia alleged, erron
eously stated in the petition. Atten
tion is called to the sparsely settled
or unsettled nature of the country
through which the Great Northern lines
pass, the abundance of raw materials
to be hauled at a low mileage rate ;
the great timber wealth of the Pacific
Northwest, and the necessity of a re
turn load for the cars taking this tim
ber to the prairie states; the develop
ment of trade with Eastern Asia as a
means of securing such return loads,
and the establishment of a connecting
steamship line for that purpose.
It is stated that in the interstate and
international commerce which the
Great Northern Company has thus
built up, it competes both in this coun
try and on the ocean with other trans
continental lines, including the Cana
dian Pacific, and at the Oriental ports
it competes for the commerce of the
world. Its rates are and must be made
in competition with the rates of ocean
carriers by way of the Suez canal. The
policy thus followed by the Great
Northern Company in building up an
international, and thereby on inter
state, commetee has been followed by
the Northern Pacific Company since
its reorganization in 1896.
It is said that both roads were placed
at a disadvantage with other transcon
tinental roads, as well as with Euro
pean competitors, by the want of
sufficient direct connection with the
territory offering the best markets for
the products of the country along their
lines, and with the places of pro
duction and great centers of distribu
tion from which their traffic must be
supplied. The lines of the Burlington,
better than those of any other com
pany, fulfilled the requirements of
both roods in respect to market! for
eastbonnd freight and westbound traffic.

AFFAIR IN VENICE.
Lieutenant Doddridge Explains How American
Sailors Cot Into Trouble.
Venice, May 5. The officers of the
United States cruiser Chicago have
been released. Tho order of release,
granted by the king, came this morn
ing. In an interview with a reporter
of the Associated Press the imprisoned
officers warmly repudiated tho reports
irom Home that they were under tho
influence of wine at the time of the
trouble, and said that on the contrary
they were absolutely sober. Lieuten
ant John 8. Doddridge remarked :
"After the accidental upsetting of a
table in a cafe by myself and a com
panion, at 11 o'clock at night, we were
followed and attacked by a mob, and
two municipal policemen appeared on
the scene. I with my open hand mo
tioned to the crowd to keep off. The
police then seized us, but the crowd
continued so threatening that our
brother officers and a marine who hap
pened to be on the plaza, ran to our
rescue. We acted only in self defense
and against a large hostile crowd. We
did not strike the police. Doubtless
misunderstanding of the two languages
had something to do with the trouble.
We were allowed to remain together in
prison, but the room in which we were
confined swarmed with insects."
The liberated officers of ;the Chicago
joined their shipjtoday, and the cruiser
