Washington Dec. 14. The Sec
retary of the Interior sent to Con
gress to-day an estimate of expenses
of the Dawes commission for the
fiscal year ending June. 30 1900.
It is estimated as follows:
Salary of four commissioners and
employees $GO000; salary of em-
ployees including secretary of com
mission $39980; contingent ex-
penses $3r00. Total $123480.
The commissioners in their state
ment say: By the rules and reg
ulations governing the selection
and renting prospective allotments
of lands of the Five Civilized Tribes
this commission is required to es-
tablish an office within the terri
tory of each tribe for the purpose
of registering each selection of
lands made by any member of the
tribe for his allotment. The com
mission has made a conservative
estimate of the appropriation nec
essary for the establishment and
support of these offices and with
the amounts necessary for apprais
ing and allotment of these lands to
the Seminoles and preparation of
the Choctaw Chickasaw and Creek
citizenship rolls the additional
amount of $80000 over the appro
priation for the present fiscal year
will be required."
These appropriations will be em
bodied in an amendment to the In

Farmers in the city from the Ter-

Farmers who have tried to get
leases in the Indian Territory re-
cently report that it is rather a
hard matter to get a leaseespecially
for land that is iu cultivation and
on account of the uncertainty of
holding leases it would be risk to

prospect of remaining there if the
