same period, amounted to $286,113,130, a
decrease for the year of about W6.000.001).
Basing his figures on the estimates
of appropriations already submitted by
the several executive departments the
secretary Is of the opinion that the ex-
cess of expenditures over receipts for the
fiscal year ending June 30. 1900, may
reach $| tfl.046,796.

The report calls attention to the com-
mission of which Assistant Secretary

with German officials ccrtain Import-
ant matters affecting the proper admin-
istration of the customs laws and an
agreement readied with that country con-
tained a provision that the Chamber of
Commerce of that country should be en-
titled to furnish certificates, of value of
merchandise manufactured or produced
in their respective communities which
should be regarded by tho appraising of-
ficers of the United States as competent
evidence in the finding of value. This
privilege was subsequently extended to

within an area that a century ago
would not have afforded sufficient
camping ground for the members of
any one of the tribes.
The population of the Quapaw
country is made up of progressive In-
dian citizens, all of them fully com-
petent to manage their individual af-
fairs. Occupying a corner of old In-
dian Territory, however, they have
been tlje victims of whatever legisla-
tion was enacted by congress for the
"Indians of Indian Territory," and to-
day they have less privileges as cit-
izens than many tribes who are not
their equals In business intelligence.
During the last congress, Mr. Mc-
Guire was successful in the lower
house In getting a bill passed that
would remove all the restrictions
from tho Quapaws and tho other
tribes named. In th^ senate, how-
ever, Senator Curtis, of Kansas attack
ed the bill and succeeded in having
it greatly modified, thus cutting the
tribes off from many of the privileges
given them In the McGuire bill. On
the motoin of Mr. McGuire the house
refused to concur in the senate
amendment an<^ the 1 .i I v-nt to con
ference. Mr. McGuire expects to get
his original bill passed* and signed.
The Quapaw country is rich in zinc,
lead and other minerals, a portion of
the Joplln field, and these lands make
Ithe Indian owners v« ry wealthy.
Within the past few years Indians from
the Quapaw country and also numer-
ous Delaware Indians, living In the
center of the Cherokee country, are
moving into the Osage nation, Inter-
marrying1 and becoming citizens of

chased the road through a treaty
with fV Indians for 57 1 - « nts
tribes claim to have had eirrrflan
business dealings with the "Great
White Father." Mr. McGuire has
discussed this bill with a number of
other congressmen and feel* certain
of its success. The Pawnees also
want the restrictions removed from
the land of deceased members of the
tribe, so they may sell the lands.j
Such tracts, whlah now form the best
agricultural land of Pawnee- and ad-
joining counties could then be sold to
permanent white settlers and become
taxable. This bill will also be Intro-*|
duced by Mr. McGuire.
The Osage Civilization Fund.
The Osage Indians also claim to|
have had some unprofitable business^
deals with the Federal government*]
and through a bill to be introduced by
Congressman McGuire, will ask that
they be reimbursed nearly $800,000
with Interest, known as the Osage
civilization fund. Following a treaty
with the Federal government In 1866,
resulting in the sale of some of their
lands In Kansas, the sum of $800,000'
was taken from the sale of the lands
and held with the consent of tho
Osage Chiefs as a civilization or ed-
The Osages maintained that It was-
their understanding that the entire
$800,000 would be expended solely for
the Ofrage Indians, but on the con-
trary it has been used to educate In-
dians In all portions of the T'nlted
•States. The O ages have received'
only $47 out of the $800,000 and will
ask to be re-lmbursed from the*rnlt-
eil States Treasury for the entire
amount. Congressman McGuire has'
his bill drawn.
