I elaborate detail the treaties and stipu-
i lations un ler which the Choctaws and
Chickasaw« gained title to this land
' und subsequently parted with it to the
I government on the stipulation that it
be used for friendly Indians. The as-
' sertion is made that the government
J has failed to carry out the conditions,
I and that the land really belongs to the
j.Choctaw-, and Chicka aws. The suit
is, first, for all the money which inay
be realized from the sales of the sur-
plus to white settlers and received for
a lite of the lands allotted to the
Lias and their affiliated bands.
The suit is brought by James G. Stand-
ley for the Choctaws, and by J. II. Mc-
Gowan for the Chickasaws.
Waiting for an Answer from Spain.
Washington, March 2s. — There was
another long cabinet meeting yester-
day and the foreign complications were
discussed. Secretary Oresliam again
showed his impatience that his de-
mand remains unanswered, lie is
keenly disappointed that the Spanish
government has so far ignored his
demands for an apology; he advo-
cates the sending of a sharp
note of reminder that further de-
lay in that matter will be resented.
Oiher members of the cabinet are
represented as advocating a more con-
servative line of action an account of
the political changes in Spain, and
ills' on the, ground that sufficient time
; lias mat \ot i lapse I for a full investiga-
tion of the Allianca incident. The
president is said to take the latter view
of the case, on the theory that precip-
itate action at this critical juncture
might have serious consequences to
both Spain and the United States.

TAYLOR TltiAI. OlM M D.
An Hired* CiiiiMe to Filter the Uooiu Ihe
CAltiioM.ro.; Mo., March .'S. -Before
o'cloe i this mornin g groups of people
stood in the courthouse yard, and at 9
dock, the hour set for the Taylor
trial to begin, the court room was
packed, while not one-fourth of the
struggling mass of people could get in-
At 8 o'clock the Taylor brothers, fol-
lowed by a straggling crowd of men
and boys, were led by Sheriff George
Stanley from the jail to the court-
house. William was dressed in black
broadcloth of a clerical cut. George
attracted most of the attention, for he
is a handsome looking man.
The jury is made up of David Jami-
son, Harnett M. Hudson, W. K. Hrain-
mcr, Hen Glover, Geo - e Fleming,
Adolp'.v Aour, Frank tie, Klisha
Maker, J. T. Noland, .lain s II. Creel,
J. A. Hose and Granville Jenkins, all
farmers. The prosecution declares
that It is as good a jury as could be got
together in Carroll county.
Judge Racket* instructed the jury
that they would be kept together,

saying: "A id there its the man, Hill
Taylor, who planni- I and helped carry
out this ghastly murder." Taylor
shifted uneasily in his chair. Mr.

St. Louis, March In the I'nited
States circuit court the WelU i'ar.o Ex-
press Co. has begun suit against George
11. Loekwood and Geor < U. Robinson,
two local joint stockholders of \datns
Express Co. for hi. The bill al-
leges that November ~7. lthe plain-
tiffs delivered to the defendants
00J in money to bo delivered by the
latter to the Southern impress Co.,
which was to convey it to New Orleans
for delivery to the plaintiff there. The
money was never delivered t<>
the Southern I. press Co and
the suit follows. The money in
question was consigned at New York
for a bank in Galveston. It was
transferred by the Wells Fargo Co. to
to the Adams at Cincinnati. When the
packages supposed t > c.attain money
were opened in Galve t m they were
found to contain nothing but brown
Chattanooga,Tenn., March 28.—Just
ns the southbound night express on the
Queen tfc Crescent railroad, which left
Cincinnati at 8 o'clock last night,
reached the south end of the tunnel, a
mile north of Greenwood, Ivy., at \
lock this morning, six men signaled
to the engineer to stop. T. 11. Griflin,
superintendent of detectives of the
road, had received some warning that
a liold-up was being planned and,
ith two brave assistants, was in the
express car. As soon as the train
stopped the three officers and the mes-
senger engaged the bandits in a short
but sharp conflict, which was over in
about ten minutes. Then it was
found that one of the robbers had
been killed outright, another so badly
wounded that he died in less than
half an hour, while a third succumbed
to his wounds while being brought
hero as a prisoner. The other three
men escaped, but there is every reason !
to believe that all of them were
wounded more or less seriously. The
outlaws fired many shots, but not a per-
son on the train was even wounded,
though there were some narrow es-
capes. The robbers were not known
and it is supposed that they were na-
tive mountaineers, green at the busi-
ness. II. Haggard, a passenger, on the
train, says the excitement among the
passengers was intense while the ■
shooting was in progress.
At Cincinnati General Manager Car-
roll, of the Queen Crescent route,
and General Manager Harrett, of tho
Adams Express Co., received word this i
morning of tlio repulse of the train |
robbers, and were both overjoyed at
the news. Mr. Carroll is proud of the
fact that this effective service was per
formed under the immediate direction
of the special agent in charce of the
police department of the road.
General Manager llarrett, of the
Adams Express Co., says that he looks
upon tliis as an important event. The
express company has adopted the plan
of a secret service to protect its prop-
erty against robbers. This is the first
result of the new method. While it is
costly, it is infinitely more effective
than any amount of detective work to
arrest and punish robbers. Preven-
tion, he thinks, in this matter, is bet-
ter than cure.
PIONEER MISSIONARY DEAD.
flic Senior Methodist Worker in China -
t'ndlsiiiuycd by Heathen Mobs.
Tori k v. Ivan., March -S.- J. W.
Moore, of Marion county, member of
the live stock sanitary commission, has
received news of the death at Foo
Chow, China, of his brother-in-law, j
I lev. Nathan Sites, the senior mission-
ary in the Methodist Episcopal church !
in China. He went out first in 1881, ae- j
companicd by his wife, and was one j
of the most successful missionaries in j
the Held. On one occasion when en- :
tering a new district where the officials ;
were particularly hostile to Christian- j
ity, he was t upon by a mob and left i
for dead, but soon recovered and re-
sumed his work. He was thoroughly)
master of the Chinese language, and j
when not presiding over the confer-1
ences in that country he acted ;tf
terpreter for the presiding bishop,
was twice sent to the
enee of the Methodist church in this
country, bringing with him upon one
occasion Rev. l)r. Sit* Selc Ong, whom
