Washington, Sept 19. Speaking re
garding the conditions governing the
opening of the ceded lauds In Okla
homa, Secretary Noble said: 'The
conditions under which the proclama
tion of the president opens the Indian
purchases in Oklahoma territory Sep
tember 22, while similar in some par
ticulars to those existing when Okla
homa itself was opened, are yet very
materially different in others. Each of
the Indians of the tribes selling to the
United States had the reserved right by
contract to to take an allotment and this
right he has exercised fully. The allot
ments have all been made and the same
have been approved in the department
of the interior and to the Sac and Fox
Indians the patents have been issued.
The Sac and Fox took 549 allotments of
160 acres cacli. The Iowas Uxk 109, of
eighty acres each, the Pottawatoraies
I.3CS of 10 acres each, and the absentee
Shawnees .VS of also a quarter section
each. These selections were made un
der supervision of allotting agents of
the government and are scattered
broadcast over all the lands purchased.
The Indians are not on these allotments
yet nor is there any mark on the
ground showing that that tract is
allotcd. The settler is therefore li
able to get on such a piece of land
unless he has a guide. So it is abso
lutely necessary that the settler should
know what clear sections and quarter
sections are left outside the allotments
that he may make no mistake. If he
ignorantly should settle on an Indian
allotment he would lose his opportu
nity and Ik defeatciL It has therefore
been absolutely necessary to put the
opening a few days ahead to get the
lists sent to the territory and published
there and distributed These lists have
been prepared with the utmost enro
and great labor and were forwarded as
soon as completed, and will be in the
hands of the people there for use when
the opening takes place. It was
also necessary to have a judge
of probate appointed for the new court
and the new county seats surveyed for
town sites before lots can be selected
there. This work is in progress and
will be completed no doubt by Tues
day. The Indians have also t be con
sidered and their patents issued. These
have been forwarded when required,
and the lists of allotment in all cases
approved. The military will still have
authority to protect these allotments
and will remain for that purpose. It
was also necessary to put the opening
far enough ahead to notify the troops
along the lmrder of the day and hour
they could let the people enter.
There are no railroads there for
tho most part and it therefore taken
time to do this. It is highly de
sirable that the settlers should
fully understand tho absolute necessity
of guiding themselves by the lists of
vauant lauds sent out They should
not attempt to enter without the list
The chances will be almost even for a
fatal mistake. The lands have ln-en
attached to the various offices at Guthrio
and Oklahoma City. It has not Wen
deemed best to suspend this action iti
order to defeat fraudulent soldiers'
declatory entries as it would also neces
sarily defeat .some claims made by old
soldiers in good faith. It is better the
law should take its course than it
should be interfered with by executive
action. Fraud can letter le dealt with
by other means than through actual in
justice practiced toward the Innocent
to defeat the guilty."

New York. Sept 10.-R. G. Dun fc
Co. 's weekly review of trade says:
The hot weather at the west is worth
to the country many millions every
With money coining in for stocks and
bonds, as well as for wheat and cotton,
and with liquidation of farming indebt
edness, the prospects for business this
fall are unusually bright Actual im
provement is seen in nearly all the cities
from which reorts arc received this
week. At Boston trade is enlarging. At
Philadelphia business is more active and
tho iron markets stronger. At Cleve
land trade is nearly all increasing and
at Cincinnati the shoo business is es
pecially active, but tho carriage trade
quiet. At Chicago some decrease in
receipts of lard, butter and wool, com
pared with last year, is reported for
the week, but increase in Hour, barley,
cured meats, cheese, hides, and a gain
of a quarter in oats, while receipts of
rye and wheat arc six times those of
last year. At Minneapolis trade is act
ive in lumler anil Hour, shipment s of
Hour being more than double those of
last year. At St Paul trade is gfcatly
exceeding expectations and at Omaha
is good, though money Is close.
At Milwaukee it is observed that the
weather has greatly improved the
prospect as to corn. At St IOuls flic
country banks arc not drawing as
heavily for northern crops, but money
is going south for cotton, and at Kan
sas City trade is .satisfactory and money
easier. At Nashville improvement is
seen and money is not so close as here
tofore: at Memphis the gain is slow,
while money is not abundant the
market is easier; at Savannah trade is
fair but the money market is still
tight and at New Orleans improvement
is seen in groceries rice is moving free
ly and money, though in good demand,
is in sufficient supply for all legitmatc
Aliuiiiltncr In l)rik.
Chicago. Sept 10. A Burlington
official who has just returned from a
western trip said to-day: "People have
no idea of the amount of grain farmers
in Iowa, Nebraska, Kansas. Colorado
and Wyoming have raised. It seems
incredible, but on our line between
Holdredge and Holyoke in western Ne
braska, a distance "of ISO miles there
will at the 3west estimate be 6.000 car
loads of corn, wheat and oats for Ship
ment to market. This is a fair indica
tion of the crops all over Nebraska,
consequently we will be kept very

When the matter was called to the
attention of Ignatius Donnelly, presi

that the alliance had nothing to do
with the circulars, which, however,
have the approval of what is known a
the reform press association at Wash
ington, although that association is
not paying the bills.
The managers of the elevators nil
charge the mills with paying the bills
for sending out the circulars. Some of
them even go so far a.s to charge Charles
A. Pillsbnry, manager of the English
syndicate mills with the nuthorhlp of
the last circular.
