VA8iii.NoTon April It. At tile nicot-
ine of tho sUb-coinmttteo on Indian nf-
fairs In chnrgo of treaties It was de-
cided yesterday to ratify the salo of the
Kiowa Comanche and Apache land
and a sub-cotnmtttco consisting of Cur-
tis of Kansas and Maddox of Georgia
was appointed to Investigate the claims
of tho Chlckasaws and Choctaws for
nn equity In the lands. This Investiga-
tion will reopen ono of tho most sensa-
tional casoA which the Indian countty
has ever furnished. If tho claims of
tho Chlckasaws and Choctaws hold
good tho price of the land to tho gov-
ernment will be increased from 80 cents
to ti 03 nn ncro. The equities claimed
by tho Chlckasaws nnd Choctaws are
tho saino ns thoso in tho Cheyenne and
Arapahoe reservations which were ul-
lowod by congress vetoed by President
Harrison and subsequently passed over
tho president's veto.
It was charged at that time and sub-
sequent developments have tended to
strengthen tho belief in tho minds of
some that this claim was the result of
an attempt to mulct tho government
aud was a gigantic steal ns any ad-
ditional claim will havo to bo paid by
tho settlers who take the land. An ef-
fort will be made to prevent allow-
ance of tho Choctaw equity claim and
the sub-committee will sift tho case to
the bottom. The equity claim Is one-
half larger than tho price which It Is
proposed to pay for tho lauds ' tho
Choctaws and Chlckasaws claiming
$1.23 an acre.
In 1833 the Choctaws and Chlckasaws

of thoso who will fight to prevent nn
additional obligation being placed on

HILL ON THE TARIFF.

l'.ltlon nn tha Tariff -The Administer!
Hon'. Foreign Policy Criticised He la
(Ippnsed t the tnenttts Tax
Wariii.noto.n April 10. When the sen-
ate met yesterday tho galleries were
crowded for It was kno.vn that Mr.
Hill of New York proposed to define
his policy on tha tariff nnd other mat-
ters. After tho routine work had been
disposed of the New Yorker arose nnd
began: "The political revolution which
commenced in 1333 nnd culminated In
ISTi was nn emphatic expression of
tho popular will In behalf of certain
governmental pollc'cs. Hlghlly In-
tegrated It indicated the public
stntlment in opposition to intrench-
ment upon tho reserved rights of tho
states through odious federal election
law- (Mj.no proposed nnd others thel
existing; it voiced the general demand
u a itiov-S'U aiuuuiivi; Ul VII- Ul"i I is HI
indefensible financial system of silver
bullion purchases by the government
Instead ot the colnago contemplated
for a discontinuance of the unwise nnd
by the cons'.itutlon. n system equally
a hlndranco to the return to bl-
metnletim ns well as a menaco to
a sound and stable currency; It
manifested the dcslro for a better ad-
ministration of publla affairs greater
economy in governmental expenditures
and the exaction of a higher ofllclal
standard in the execution of public
trusts; it demanded a more cafe dlirnl
fled and consistent foreign policy; and
It condemned that abuse or perversion
of the taxing power of tho government
which Is known as the policy ot protec
tion lor protection s sako aionn.and de-
clared in favor of a tariff for revenue."
Mr. Hill then took up tho foreign
poller t the administratiou and said:
"It h i it denied somo mistakes have
occut d. Our foreign policy especial
ly thi relating to Hawaii It must bo
ndml' cd lias not met the o.vpecta
tlans of tho people. A sense ot humil
iation prevailed when the proj-
ect for the restoration of a deposed
monarch was unfolded by tho ndmtnis-
traii tid gratification ensued when
its abandonment or failure was reluc-
tantly announced influenced largely
by an aroused public sentiment That
unfortunate contemplated policy was
a blunder and a blunder is sometimes
worse than a crime. It was however
the natural conscquenco which
might well hare been antici-
pate 1 from that other mlstako In
placing tho department ot stato In
charge of a republican statesman dis-
tinguished and estimable though he
may be whoso public services have
always been Identified In opposition to
the democratic party who was without
sympathy for its traditions and pur-
poses and whose political convictions
upon tho disputed public question
of tho day it changed at all
are carefully concealed." Ho re-
gretted that the president should
not have been able to find in his own
party a man of democratic instincts
and training who would havo reflected
credit upon tho country and avoided
the promulgation ot an un-American
policy and departure from democratic
precedents. "In other respects the
present administration of our govern-
ment affords scant grounds for just
Of tariff reform Mr. Hill salt that
revision should be approached with
circumspection and with a realizing
sense of the changed condition of the
country since 1SS7 and 180a v
The rest of tho New Yorkor's speech
was given up to the Income tax ques-
tion and his opening words defined
his position la unequivocal language.
"Against such a scheme" he said
"unnecessary ill timed and mlschiuv-
ous suddenly sprung upon the coun-
try in the hour of its distress un-dera-ocratic
in ita nature and socialistic in
Its tendencies I enter tho protest et
the people of the state ot New York."
"Tho public should not bo misled in-
to the belief that only those whose In-
comes exceed'$l000are affected by this
bllL That is a mistaken Idea. All
thoso having Incomes less than $4000
but moro than $3500 are put to the an-
noyance of making sworn returns and
they neglect It nt their pcriL"
In outlining his position Mr. Hill
said that not one dollar ot tariff taxa-
tion should bo Imposed whero it was
necessary for the needs of the govern-
ment economically administered but
whatever these needs were the neces-
sary revenue therefor should bo sup-
plied from tariff taxation nnd that
alone save r.nd except the taxes on
liquors oleomargarine and tobacco to
which tho country has long been ac-
customed and which for obvious reav
sons need not be disturbed.
"For my own part as a dem?crat"
Mr. Hill said. "I prefer indirect taxa-
tion and tariff reform aboro direct tax-
ation and tariff extinction. I prefer
taxing foreign products rather than
taxing homo products."
"Mr. President" said Mr. 11111. In
closing "this is an Important crisis In
the history of the democratlo party.
The failure ot tho tariff revision means
the defeat ot the democratlo position.
It not the division and annihilation ot
our party. Moreover it seems as we
believe. Injury to the best interests of
the country. Let thoso who insist upon
Injecting into this bill this odious and
unilemocratto feature of un income
tax a relio of war legislation pause
and reflect upon tho possible conse-
quence of their unwarrantable de-
mands. They should realize that It
means the los ot thu control of this
senate now nearly equally divided be-
tween tho two great parties; It means
the loss nt the next house of represen-
tatives; It means the lossot tho elector-
al vote of New York Now Jersey.Con-
nectlcut and probably every northern
state and finally It moans the loss ot
the next jiresldenoy nnd all it Implies."
