Special to the Kansas City Journal.
WasiiinotoN, I). C., Nov. 27.—John
Knight and Commissioner cLamor-
eaux, of the general land odice, aro
very much astonished over the fact
that United States Attorney Speed,of
Oklahoma, succeeded in getting at
the cipher arrangement that had|been
concocted in the land office to be used
In capturing some of the property at
the opening of the strip.
They have looked over the printed
rtports of the cipher arrangement
very carefully, and have come to the
conclusion that Harry Bacon, the
chairman of the board of county com-
missioners of Oklahoma county,Is the
fellow who gave the whole matter
away. They appear to have reasoned
very well iu reaching this conclusion.
Knight, the confidential business
friend of the commissioner of the land
office, has a copy of the cipher that
they agreed upon.
Also Ledru Guthrie has a copy, ns
agreed upon, and when the cipher
was published Knight and Lamoreaux
made a comparison und it Is discov-
ered that the word "Jim Hornet" Is
used lu the published cipher und that
It dues not belong to the land office
cipher. This Is to mean "town lot
aud Is the invention Bacon and
used In some of his messages to Knight
and others here, much to their con-
fusion. This, according to the con-
clusion of Knight and the commis-
sioner of the land office, shows that
Bacon gave the snap away and proves
to their nnnds that the deal was toi
big for him and, being more than he
could stand, he was forced to let it be
known and expose the rottenness of
the whole matter. They are very
much disturbed over the exposure of
the cipher arrangements.
Having placed the blame for the
leak on Bacon, they arc determined to
punish him for his blowing. Bscon's
accounts have been placed before the
department. He was commissioned
to go to tile strip before the opening
and given authority to hire wagons
and incur expense a* i special ngent
of the government, and all this for
the purpose of getting some of the
Indians to whom allotments were to
made to take claims adjoining the
second locations of the county seats.
This was the object of giving Bacon
the commission, and of course the
; United States government was to paj
the bills, as he was a commissioned
I j special agent. He Incurred the ex-
penso all right enough and did the
work as best he could, but while he
failed in making as big a haul as he
hoped, and as the land office gang
hoped, he made some clever catches,
and now he wants his bill for expenses

that he has some letters in his posses-

The most interesting feature about

Is the interesting part. While the
fact that the cipher was used, and
what It is ami what It was used for
maketbe case very plain that the
gang had the Inside information at

Interesting to know how the matter
It came about by tbe commissions
of the land office telling Ledru Guth-
rie one evening at his home, that h
wanted him to meet Knight. Th
next day, as arranged, Lamoreaux
gave Guthrie a note to Knight, ami
the latter was seen soon after at his
hotel. Ho replied that anything his
friend Lamoreaux did or suggested
was all right, and at once he proceed-
ed to unfold a scheme for getting val
uable properly in the strip This was
before tbe proclamat on was Issued,
before also the changes rf towusltes
were made, and he proceeded to te
how he would be able to get the in
formation and make the scheme prac-
tical. The cipher was agreed upon
and Bacon, who chanced to be in town
at the time, was taken Into tho mat-
tor, and from time to time the plot
w is formulated.
Tills Is the Information given ou
by Guthrie to some of his frlend3, and

The whole matter appears to have
teen started by KuigUt and Lamor-

scheme, Lamoreaux made sonn of the
selections. This would seem to land

The case somes up on an agreed
statement of facts, together with two
sets of interrogatories.
The only substantial issue present-
ed by the coitest Is, that Porter vio-
ated the terms of the prcsldeut's
proclamat ion of the 23d of March,
188J, made to carry into effect the
provisions of the act of congress of
March 2, 1889, relating to the disposi-
tion of a part of the public domain
entitled "An act making appropaia
tlons for the curreut and contingent
expenses of the Indlau department,
and ror fulfilling treaty stipulations
with various Indian tribes, for the
year eudlng aune the 30th, 1890, ami
for other purposes."
The record discloses that Porter was
in the employment of the government
In the quartermaster's department at
Fort lteno, and that while in said cm
ployment said Porter was ordered,
about April 18, 1889, with five private
soldiers, one Sergeant Kennedy, and
two employes, to go to Council Grove,
in the Oklahoma country, to survey
and stake oil aud plow around the
military timber reservation, three
miles square, which lliey did. At the
time Porter, with others of the party,
who under the command and direc-
tion of Lieut. A. O. McCutub and Ser-
geant Kennedy. Porter did the plow-
ing around the reservation, and they
finished all the work connected with
said timber reservatiot on Tuesday
evening, April 23, 1880.
The said timber re-ervation was in-
cluded within the domain to which

The Register of tlie Liiml Officeat Perry
Would Like to Resign niitl Get
Washington, Nov. 26.-[Special.]
Register Malone, of the Perry olllce,
appears .to be entered in an exciting
race. II is name In the interior de-
partment boodle cipher, as shown by
the grand jury Investigation iu Okla-
homa is "Jupiter," and it Is the word
among -ime of the officials here, who,
by reason of being in the gang, know
something of the conditions, that
"Jupiter" is in very close quarters it
is certain that Malone has ottered his
resignation. This is the plan he has
taken, it is thought, by way of seek-
ing personal safety. It is certain
that he will be called upon to make
some explanations in the courts about
how it Is that so many filings were
purchased at his office, and this beiug
tbe case he would have to get out of
that country, according to those who
are in a position to knuw.
But the commissioner of the land
office, whose cipher is "Gladstone,"
does not like to admit the frauds by
making it known that Malone was
given a chance to run away with the
money he saved up while under the
Impression that public office Is u pub-
lic trust. The curmlssloper also dis-
covers that Malone being one of his
personal pets, this action no his pari
would lend additional proof cithe un-
derstanding that the gang has been
doing up the settlers as far as pos-
sible. But, on the other hand, it is
appearing all the more certain to
them that if Malone is held there liy
his bond he Is likely to get his bonds-
men Into trouble.
The situation appears alarming for
the land olllce officials any way they
look, but in the midst of their trouble
they do not forget their good luck in
that country, aud that they secured
what they went after, and they ad-
mit that they expected a little trou-
ble, but they did not think but that
they would be able to have the judic-
iary of Oklahoma on their side by
this time, and their failure to get the
Uuited States attorney ousted ac-
cording to their efforts and arrnnge
ments and calculations is conceded by
them to be responsible for all their
troubles. This they look upon as the
weakest point in their whole scheme.
