Minco Minstrel: After most careful
and diligent inquiry this week we can
learn but little of interest from the
allotting camp. The latent we can
hear of the f >rce it was employed in
running lines just north of Anadarko
and near the home of Win. Shirley.
The Minstrel wou d be heartily glad
to report rupid, or even satisfactory,
progress in the work of allotting the
Indians on the Wichita reservation,
but we art* honestly unable to do so.
Many people, at home and abtoad,
look to thta piper weekly for authentic
information concerning this work, and
we use our best endeavor to get at the
truth and the exact condi'ion of
things for every report. Some times
we may be mistaken, but if so it is a
mistake in our sources of information
and not a colored report for any pur-
pose. Last week week we gave a re-
sume of the wo/k done as fir as we
could verify it, and took the word of
the allotting force that they had
allotted forty-five individuals,although
others acquainted with the situation
in detail could count up only sixteen
who had taken their allotments. We
also stated then that Mr. Mills, one of
the allotting agents, was in Washing-
ton to confer with the authorities re-
garding tin* refusal of the Indians to
select their allotments, and to the fur-
ther faet that delegations of the In-
dians were ais< in Washington to jus-
tify their refusal and to ask that tliey
be guaranteed payment for their sur
plus land after allotment. "" ~ *'
do but little else than repeat
the former statement. Mr. Mills and
the objecting delegations of Indians
are yet in Washington, and no word
from any of them has reached us since
their arrival at that place. What they
are doing, or what they can do, is siin
ply a matter of conjecture. The evi-
dent facts ho far, are, that the allotting
agents hail no power to force the work
of allotment, when they came on. and
that the Indians took advantage of
that laek of authoriry to stop the
work altogether. We can only sup-
pose that the errand of Mr. Mills to
Washington was to explain this inter-
ruption and tj ask for extended au-
thority that will enable the worit to
go on with or without the consent of
the Indian. Hut the Indian is also at
Washington, and if ever a tribe had
just cause of complaint it is the Wich-
ita tribe. Owners and actual occu-
pants of the country since the time
when neither tradition nor the mem-
ory of man runneth to the
contrary, yet the land has been
sold, resold, treated for and
transferred from beneath them with-
out their approval or consent from the
time of Spanish exploration down to
today, and even the small remnant of
land left them they were force 1 to di-
vide with the Caddos and 1) -lawares
and only held tenure by the slight au-
thority of executive order. Territory
claimed by the Spanish by right of dis
covery, sold to Fronce for a price,
bought by the United States govern-
ment in 1803, treated away to the Choc-
taws and Chickasaws in 1805, ceded
back (for a purpose) to the United
States government in 1800, now
claimed by the Choctaws and Chicka-
saws as their original purchase, and
this title disputed by the United States
government in the courts at Washing
ton. Where, and when, and how, do
original owners of the soil come in?
Nowhere yet. In the treaty made
with Wlchitas in 1891, they understood
they were at last to get something for
the surplus lands of their little rem-
nant of territory, but the treaty as
ratified made no such positive declara-
tion anil left ti e matter entirely with
congress whether the Wichitas should
have any price at all, or get anything
save their allotments. The title to
the surplus land is now involved be-
tween the Ohoctaws and Chickasaws
on one side, and the United States
government on the other side, and the
allotting agents are on hand to desig
nate to the Wichitas their last 100
acres of land to the individual. In this
emergency, and seeing no hope in this
movement for long delayed justice
they have how made their final stin i
in objection and a last appeal for some
guarantee of payment for their surp-
lus land before consenting to take
their allotments. Hut that matter is
being contested in the courts by two
other parties, each of whom claim
right of domain, without reference to
the Wichitas at all. If there is any
show for the Wichitas it is more than
we can see. No legal authority nor
wit'en document gives them any title
to the land, nor ever did. In faet the
onlv authority they have for even the
small right to 100 acres each is con
tained in the agreement of 18UI.
Hut equity tliey havll in abundanc\
and it is this hope that equity will be
awarded them that has caused them
to refuse allotment and to appeal to
The probabilities of the whole mat-
ter are these: Mr. Mills will return
with power to allot the Indians; no
attention will be paid to the equities
of the Wichitas; the trial for right of
domain will go against the United
States anil in favor of the Choctaws
and Chickasaws: the United States
will retain possession and the Choc-
taws and Chickasaws will be paidftl :.T
per acre for all surp'us land after the
Wichitas and others are allotted; the
Wichitas and others will g -t tl eir al-
lotments, ami nothing more if the free
homes bill becomes a law. If that law
fails they may get the money paid by
settlers for homesteads.
We expect this, and expect the dele-
gations to return in a few days. We
also expect then o see the work of
allotment proceed at a better rate of

Washington, June 1. The senate

which was referred the Tillman reso-

sugar stock scandals, will report Tues-

Beyond doubt the senate will vote for
the inquiry and the investigating com-
mittee will doubtless be named quick-
ly. As Senator Tillman will head the
committee there is no danger of there
being a "whitewash" this time, if the
facts presented warrant reaching any
conclusion. The senator from South
Carolina will either prove to the satis-
faction of the country at lurge that
certain members of the senate have
been dealing with the sugar trustor
he will demonstrate that several repu-

used Idle rumors as solid facts.

system of water cure has spread over
the country with remarkable progress.
Within the last Pi months more than
20,000 people have tried the treatment
for all manner of ills. One of the
latest patients is ex-Gov. Altgeld, of

Ni u York, June I. While gaining a
victory in the courts at Washington
the sugar trust has lost a tight, in the
Indian ottlee. Its products will be
barred out of the Indian reservations
during 1898. Not only that, but sugars
imported direct from Holland will take
the place of the combine's product.
The sugar trust people claim this
is inconsistent with the policy
of protection to home industries,
and threaten an appeal, but Wil-
liam A. Jones, of Wisconsin, the
new commissioner of Indian affairs,
though a staunch protectionist, says
flatly: "This office will accept no
dictation from the sugar trust or any
other corporation. 1 took this eom-
inisslonership intending to conduct the

Jones a mouth ago advertised for bids
1,010,882 pounds of granulated
sugar and received seven bids all
told. The peculiar thing about these
bids to the new commissioner was the
fact that live of them, although sent in
separately and signed by different bid-
ders, were Identical. The unanimity
of prices told their own story, aud the
new guardian of Indian affairs took it
in at a glance.

Attempt to Rescue a Child -Children
Injured—The Deadly Fold-
Denver, Col., June I.—At eight
o'clock last evening a spring wagon
driven by Henry Marsau, a carpenter,
aud containing eight children, ranging
in age from three to nine years, was
struck by a special train on the Den-
ver & Rio Grande railroad, and as a
result four of the children are dead
and the others are terribly in-
jured, two so badly that they
will die. Marsau, with his three chil-
dren, had been spending the day at
the home of Christopher Schoneweiss,
in the southern portion of the city.
When ready to start for home he took
a loud of children, gathered up in the
neighborhood, for a short ride. It is
claimed by the police that Marsau was
intoxicated and paid no attention to
the signals of the engineer, but drove
upon the track while the train was in
plain sight and but a few feet away.
The engine struck the wagon, demol-
ishing it and crushing and mangling
the children in a horrible manner.

Kansas City, Mo., June 1.—A nervy
thief, clearly a professional, with
slight aid from a confederate, came
within an ace of securing jsuu worth
of diamonds from LeRoy Carton, a

but slick, trick of substituting an
empty envelope for one contain-

his customer, Mr. Garton at
once detected the swindle, chased
the thief Into the street and for
half a block and gruppled with
him only to let him go when the dia-
monds had been restored to him. Al-

on a business street and Mr. Garton
kept yelling for help at the top of his
voice, the bold thief escaped.
