Mr. Clapp when ho perceived-
the disposition of the senato
offered a resolution differing
from that of Mr. Aldrioh's only
in that it attempted to confer
on the Secretary of tho Interior
more power than hu now had
but it waa soon made apparent to
him that this could not be passed.
Mr. Bailey for one .remarked
that it. sought to give more
authority to tho secretary than
ho was willing to confer on any
one man and he added if it
were necessary to give suoh
jpowertoany one man he know
1 Of no one whom he would bo less
reluctant than on tho present
Seorotary of tho Interior'
The Aldrioh resolution will al
most certainly bo adopted by the
house. However dissatisfied it
may bo with this turn of affairs
it will hardly bd willing to accept
the responsibility for what would
follow the failure of all legisla-
tion on this subjeot.
The Aldrioh resolution as
"That the tribal existence and
