Reports from the cattle ranges in
Nebraska are quite satisfactory. A
prominent stock man says the loss
will Tiot be greater than is usually
sustained during the summer.
A special to the Kansas City
Journal says the House committee
on Indian affairs will report favor-
ably on the bill authorizing the St.
Louis and San Francisco railroad
to run a branch line through the
M. It. Piatt's sale of Hereford
Short-Horn and Polled cattle will
take place at the Kansas City stock

The grass is up nicely all over the
country in this region sufficient
already for sheep and horses to nib-
ble at. A good rain would just give
us a spondid pasture now. Red
Anybody in need of bedroom fur-
niture should call on L. Candce and
look over his stock and prices.
This ought to bo good news for
our boys too. Wo always thought
it took first a piece of calico and
a lot of furniture to fix up a bed
room but we never knew that candy
could do it. Ked River (Now Mex-
The very successful meeting of
cattlemen at Medicine Lodge was
very largely managed by the visit-
ing and home newspaper men. The
newspaper is the recognized mouth-
piece of all creation and the ener-
getic journalist is well calculated to.
add interest to such a meeting as the
one held at Medicine Lodge. Chi-
cago Drovers Journal.
W. R Campbell of Caldwell Kan-
sas mentioned in these columns on
prior occasions as the best known
cattle king in the golden belt is vis-
iting Las Veiras and interviewing
the real estate men. He is thinking
of buying a range here and if he gets
what he wants his family will move
to .Las Vegas. Optic.
John Cuddy was up from his
ranch last week. He reports thou-
sands of strays on their range from
all parts of the country. W. W.
Cook sold last week to John Hosp-
clhorn thirty head of cows and
calves and twenty head of half breed
yearlings the price being $17 for
yearlings and $28 for cows.' C. M.
McClelland of Ponca Agency who
is holding on Black Bear came over
to the Lodge last Tuesday. Pie re-
ports grass on his range as growing
Do any of our business men com-
prehend the fact that the Indian
supply business is worth looking
after? Wo lost that trade last year
by sitting around like knots on a
log and we can do the same this
year unless we strike a more lively
gait. Now is the time to look after
tfyat trade. Next week or next
month may be too late. A meeting
of the business men whore a clear
understanding of the situation could
be fully explained might be of great
benefit. At all events it would do
no harm. Commercial.
SCHOOLS FOR INDIANS.
Senator Hoar is very earnest in
his support of the bill to provide for
the education of Indian children
lie argues that this is not only the
cheapest but tho most humane way
of disposing of the Indian question.
His amendment given below passed
the senate by a vote of 29 to 18 :
uThc secretary of the interior is fur-
ther authorized and directed to pro-
vide for the care support and edu-
cation of all Indian children west of
the Mississippi river and not belong-
ing to the five civilizod tribes in the
Indian Territory or so many there-
of as may be practicable under such
regulations as may be approved by
the president at a cost not to ex-
ceed $200 per annum for each child.
For this purpose there is appropri-
ated $250000 per annum or so much
thereof as may be necessary."
To speak of land monopoly in a
country where land is so plenty
seems almost a misnomer. Yet the
day is surely coming when we will
have to fight the monopolists on the
land question the same as we do
now on transportation tarifs and
patents. We have already given the
land grant railroads over 2000000
acres. Col. D. C. .Murphy of Cali-
fornia own3 4068000 acres. Van-
derbilt will soon own 2000000
acres of land in Florida. The Stand-
ard oil company owns 1000000
acres. II. Disston owns 4 000000
acres in Florida. Senator Dorsey
claims 500000 acres in New Mex-
ico. Several English landlords have
taken a few bits amounting to $680-
000 acres. Sibley the seedman has
40000. Dalrymple the wheat king
is credited with 60000.
Three hundred years ago the Pu-
eblos drove the Spaniards out of
their country but were finally sub-
dued and reduced to slavery in the
mines. They number about 10000
in all and occupy nineteen towns
in New Mexico and seven in Ari-
zona. They are supposed to be de-
scendants of the Aztecs of Mexico
but their own ideas of their origin
are vague. They make handsome
pottery and good blankets. They
speak at least seven different dia-
lects and as but few of them can
speak more than one the most of
their communication is carried on
in Spanish. Every town is gov-
erned by a Cacique who' is chief
ruler of all temporal affairs. He ap-
points a governor to enforce the
laws and other officers to assist.
All important questions are settled
by a "council of wise men." They
are slowly improving Jrfow in the
ways of the white man and a good
man'' cook stoves and wagons have
been sold them in the last ten years
and even some carpets. They have
four schools with seven teachers
and the scholar are making fair prog-
ress in their studies.
