Up-to-date fathers with charming

The bicycle stooper is no more cruel to

fiend, notwithstanding that his opera
tions tend in an entirely different direc
ion. It ha3 been very truly said: "When
the white man wants an Indian reser
vation opened he begins to hint about
the imminent danger of an Indian up
rising, and the white man keeps it up
until he gets what he wants." This,
backed up by the soothing axiom that
an Indian is good for nothing until he
is dead, has been known to work won
ders. Some considerable surprise is indi
cated, by headlines in sundry ex
changes, that "President Cleveland en

his turn to have his hair cut." What
would you have him do? Yank the

with the "next" for his place? Some
people have apparently strange ideas of
presidential etiquette.

The new law, providing for free at
tendance at public high schools, which
went into effect this month, makes it
the duty of the State Department of
Education to determine annually what
schools in this state are properl3' equip
ped and subject to the provisions of the
law. Superintendent Corbett gives out
the following:
'Vibout June 1 the state superinten
dent sent out to all Inch schools and to
all county superintendents a circular
containing full information as to the
manner in which this determination
would be made, together with a blank
form for reporting the necessary data
from each high school. The absence of
school superintendents and principals
during the vacation has pi evented
many schools from sending in the re

ever, just completed a partial list, sub
ject to the addition of other schools as
their reports are received.

The United States District Attorney and
a Deputy Marshal Report the Result
of Their Investigation Into the
Matter to the Attorney Gen
eral No Justice for
Poor Iak
Washington, Sept. 2. The depart
ment of justice has recieved from the
United States attorney and marshal of
Wyoming the official reports of their
investigation into the Bannock Indian
troubles made by direction of the at
torney general.
The district attorney says: "I have
no doubt whatever that the killing of
the Indian Tanega on or about the
13th of July was an autrociousand cold
blooded murder, and it was a murder
porpetrated on the part of the con
stable, Manning, and his deputies in
pursuance of a scheme and conspiracy
to prevent tne Indians from exercising
a right and privilege which is, in my
opinion, very clearly guaranteed to
them by the treaty before mentioned.
Should prosecution on the part of the
United States be determined upon it
would be useless to commence it be
fore a commissioner. As the law is
now, we are bound to bring prisoners
before the United States commissioner
nearest to the place of arrest, and in
this case it would be before Mr. Pet
tigrew. the commissioner at Marys
vale. I am informed that he is thor
oughly in sympathy with the so-called
settlers in that region and that he ad
vised the constable, Manning, and his
posse, that the provisions of the treaty
under which the Indians claimed the
right to hunt upon the unoccupied
lands of the United States had, for
some reason, ceased to be operative.
Hence, I think to cause the arrest of
these men and take them for hearing
before this commissioner would simply
result in their discharge.
The United States deputy marshal
who investigated the trouble s ays that
after a careful investigation of the
whole affair he finds that the reports
made by settlers charging the Indians
with wholesale slaughter of game for
wantonness, or to secure the hides,
have been very much exaggerated.
"During my stay in Jackson's Hole,"
he continued, "I visited many portions
of the district and saw no evidences
of such slaughter. Lieutenants Gard
ner, Parker and Jackson of the Ninth
United States cavalry, who conducted
scouting parties of troops through all
portion's of Jackson's Hole, also found
this to be the case. On August 12 I
visited a amp of Bannock Indians who
had been on a hunt in Jackson's Hole.
The women of the party were prepar
ing the meat of seven or eight elk for
winter use, and every part of the ani
mal, even to the brains, entrails and
sinews was .being utilized either for
future food supply or possible source.
of pront.
"In connection with the trouble be
tween the Indians and the whites, I
spent some time inquiring into the
causes for the unconcealed hostility of
the Jackson's Hole people against the
Indians. There was little or no com
plaint among the settlers of offensive
manners on the part of the Indians.
Except in rare instances, they have
kept away from the houses of the set
tlers and have not been in the habit of
begging. In no instance has there
ever been a well authenticated case
where a settler has been molested by
an Indian. The killing of game by
Indians and by the increasing number
of tourist hunters threatens to so de
plete the region of big game, deer,
elk, moose, etc., as to jeopardize
the occupation of the professonal
guides at Jackson's Hole. It
was decided at the close of last
reason to I eep the Indians out of the
region this year, and the events of this
summer are the results of carefully
prepared plans. This was admitted by
United States Commissioner Pettigrew
of Marysvale and Constable Manning
said: 'We knew very well when we
started in on this thing that we would
bring matters to a head. Some one
was going to be killed, perhaps some on
both sides, and we decided the sooner
it was done the better, so that we could
get the matter before the courts.' If
a full investigation of the trouble
Should be held, the fact would be es
tablished that when Constable Mann
ing and his posse of twenty -six
settlers arrested a party of Indians on
July 13 and started with them for
Marysvale, lie and his men did all they
could to tempt 'e Indians to try to
escape in order that there might be a
basis of justification for killing some
of them."
Trouble Expected in Oregon.
Buknes, Ore., Sept. 2. The Indians
at Warm Springs and Umatilla reserv
ations come to this country annually
to kill deer for their skins. The
county judge wrote to the agencies
asking that they be kept out, but with
out effect.and now the people threaten
to drive out the India s, fifty of whom
have already arrived. Should they
persist in going to Stein mountains,
there is likely to be trouble.

The attention of the Mexican consul

New York, Sept. 2. R. (J. Dun &

Crop prospects, except for cotton, have

Important steps toward reorganiza

The industries are not only doing bet

rest of the year. The. advance in
prices of iron and its products has
added about S2 a ton more in a single

Colonel Bradley was to have opened

W. P. Thorne, the Democratic chair

Detectives Geyer of Philadelphia,
Richards of Indianapolis and Inspector
Gary of the Fidelity Insurance com

hunting for traces of the boy's body.
He was traced here with Holmes and
disappeared. The city was scoured
and work began in the suburbs hunt
ing for a house rented by Holmes on
October 10, 11 or 12 of last year.
Yesterday morning the detectives
went to Irvington, a pretty suburb of
the city and the seat of Butler college,
and before they had been at work an
hour their attention was called by a
local real estate dealer to a small va
cant cottage situated in the woods at
the edge of the town and far removed
from any other dwelling, The party
went to the house, and a few minutes
later the officers found beneath the
side porch the missing .trunk which
was taken from the side door of the
Circle house in this city October 1Q by
H. H. Holmes, and which was thought
to contain the body of the boy.
