Tho flawed Commission Denounce the
-present System of Ilcnllne; lth the
rlvo Civilized Tribes -Narrow-Minded
Otlcnrolik-R In Complete ControlTreaty
JtlEht Lone Voided Congress Should
. Tim Flro CWlllred Tribe.
Washington, .Nov. 30, By far tho
most important fetituro of tho annual
report of Secretary Smith of tho In
terior department, ko far ns the South
west is concerned, Is the report df tho
Dawes commission in regard to its
negotiation a with tho five civilized
tribes of Indians in tho Indian Terri
tory. This presents the correspondence
of tho commissioners with tho chiofs
of the fivo trihes and an account of tho
methods by which tho chiofs camo to
unitedly present an opposing front to
any effective negotiations of tiny sort.
The failure of the commission being
thus detailed tho report proceeds: "In
connection with tho ofliclal interests
here briefly outlined the commission
availed themselves of every opportun
ity of conference with private citizens
of several nations, men of character
and Influence among their people. Uy
visits to tho various localities they fa
miliarized themselvos with the condi
tions of life and the opinions and prej
udices which prevail in tho different
sections and adapted tho methods of
their attempt at negotiation to theso
conditions Hut thus far they have
met with no favorable responso among
those holding power and controlling
the political machinery in tho govern
ments existing in the Territory. It is
otherwise with thoso. believed to be a
large majority, who In the machinery
hy which ufi'alra nro administered arc
without voice or participation in tho
policy or laws by which they aro gov
erned. Tho causes, which tints far
have proved un&urmouutnble in all the
efforts at a peaceable solution of the
problem by negotiation, can only be
understood by a thorough knowledge
of the conditions into which these peo
ple have been permitted to fall by tho
indifference and non-lntcrfercnco of
the national government.
"The present conditions aro not
treaty conditions. There is not only
no treaty obligations on the part of
tho United Stales to maintain or even
to permit tho present conditions of af
fairs in the Indian Territory, but, on
the contrary, tho whole structure and
tenor of tho treaties forbid it. If our
government is obliged to maintain tho
treaties according to their orlglnul in
tent and purpose it is obligated to blot
out tit oneo present cpndilious. It has
been most clearly shown that a restor
ation of tho treaty status is not only
an impossibility, but, if a posslbtblty,
would be disastrous to this people and
against tho wishes of oil peoplo and
government alike. Theory, therefore,
of those who have brought about this
condition of affairs, to bo let alone,
not only finds no shelter In treaty ob
ligations, but is a plea for permission
to further violate thoso provisions.
"Tho commission la compelled by
the evidence forced upon them during
their examination into the ail ministra
tion of tho so-called governments in
tiis territory to report that these gov
ernments m all their branches nro
wholly corrupt, irresponsible, and un
worthy to bo longer trusted with tho
care and control of the money and
other proporty of Indian citizens,
much less their lives, which they
scarcely pretend to protect. There
can bo no higher obligation incumbent
on every branch of tho general gov
ernment than to exert its utmost con
stitutional authority to secure to this
people in common with all others
within our borders, government in
conformity with constitutional au
thorities. The government cannot ab
dicate or transfer to other shoulders
this duty as to any portion of territory
or people in the land. It cannot es
cape' responsibility if the dark record,
vt liicli has now been brought to light,
is permitted to continue. Delay can
bring nothing but increased difficulty
or durger to peuco and good order in
the Territory. Tho situation calls for
prompt action.
iiii'se considerations icatt out to ono
conclusion, it Is in tho judgment of
tho commission, tho imperative
duty of Congress to assume at
once political control of tho In
dian territory. They have come
with great reluctanco to this con
clusion, and have sought by all
methods that might reach tho
convictions of thoso holding power
in the territory to Induco them by
negotiation and mutual agreement to
consent to a satisfactory change in
their system of government and ap
propriation of tribal property. These
efforts have failed; and the commis
sion is driven to tho alternative of
recommending abandonment of these
people to, the spoliation and outrages
perpetrated in the namo of existing
government or the resumption by
Congress of tho power thus abused.

Secretary Smith's lleport Devotes Much
Space to the Indian Question.,
Washington, Nov. 30. (Secretary
Holto Smithy of tho Interior depart
ment has made his annual roport to
thp president. It reviews tho varied
work of tho department, beginning
with tho Indian service, and calls at
tention to tho strict enforcement
which has been given to tho civil
sorvlco reform, both as to tlio places
covered by tho classltlcd service, and
thoso to which tho rules of this service
do not npply. Tho secrctnry dwells
upon tho necessity of eliminating
politics from tho management of In
dian affairs, and of conducting each
reservation upon strictly bnslncss
principles., tho object being to mako
every Indian who remains upon Mio
reservation self-supporting and ready,
as soon as possible, to assume tho
duties of citizenship and bo freed
from tho paternal caro of tho govern
ment, Tho Secretary Is of tho opinion
that if tlio resources of each reserva
tion nro treated intelligently and tho
Indians required to labor in those pur
suits which aro adapted to particular
reservations, in a fow years practically
all tho Indians can he mado self-supporting.
Allotments should bo mado long bo
foro reservations aro opened. Each
Indian should bo settled upon his
homestead and bo self-supporting be
fore cltlzonshtp Is conferred upon him.
When citizensuip is conferred, tho
Govornmont ought to lot him alone
and allow him to take his place, sur
rounding him with no moro restraint
and giving him no moro help than is
accorded to other citizens. Under tho
present system, Indians to whom al
lotments havo been mado and upon
whom citizenship has boon conferred
still rccelvo enormous gratuities and
need every dollar thoy receive.
After reviewing in detail tho wor.k
of tho land olllco during tho past
twolvo mouths, tho secretary takes up
tho question of the disposition of tho
arid lands and tlio preservation of tho
forests, lie urges that theso two ques
tions aro closely allied, for tho quan
tity of arid lands far exceeds tho
present water supply, even if it wcro
all utilized for Irrigation. Tho in
crcaso of tho water supply must do
pond upon tho growth and preserva
tion of tho forests. Attention is called
to tlio failure of tho Caroy bill to ac
complish tho results oxpectod; tho
secretary attributes this to the fact
tho bill intended that money for tho
irrigation should bo raised upon tho
arid lands given to the States. This
has been impossible on account of tho
fact that .sufllclcnt control over tho
lands was not given to tho States to
make them available as security for
the money expended in tholr reclama
tion. Tho secretary suggests tho
advisability of patenting theso lands
to tho States after It is fully deter
mined that the selections mado by

bo closo in his relations with him that
this statement has a semi-ofllclal com

that Mr. Cleveland would decline nn

him. I am positive that ho doesn't
want to servo a third term. 1 am
equally positive that ho could
riot be persuaded under any circum

should bo tondr-rcd him. I havo heard

In making this statement for pub
lication, Mr. Benedict has bo far de
parted from his previous rcticonco
with regard to Mr. Cleveland's affairs,
that it has special sitrniilcancc.
To-day Mr. Benedict said further:
"Mr. Cleveland does not mako me con
fidant. 1 enn not speak for him with
authority, and I don't llko to bo placed
iu'tho position of acting us his mouth
piece. It Is not a pleasant position
for ono to bo in by any moans 1 feel
positive that Mr. Clovolnnd does not
want to servo as President for a third
term. IIP feels that ho has dono
enough for his country and no longer
cares for tho successes or defeats of
politics. I feel certain 'mind I don't
say I am cortaln that ho could
not bo persuaded to accept a
re-nomination. It has not been
offered yet. I feel certain, nnd
thcro aro little sociul matters into
which it is not necossary to go, that
Mr. Cleveland is anxious to get out of
politics. Ho wishes to enjoy the sov
ereignty of tho citizen rather than tho
sorviludo of tho State. Ho is count
ing the days and hours until ho can
return to prlvato life."
"There are some who say Mr. Clove
land must accept a rcnominntion,"
was suggested.
"I feel that ho will not."
"Then ho will havo to mako a de

"I think," was tho reply made

day over his own signature."
roter McGcoch ot I.ard Corner ITarao
Kills Illiinolf.
Milwackeb, Wis., Nov, 28. Peter
McGcoch, mllllonnlro, known through
out tho country as a daring specula
tor nnd keen financier, tho man who
ran tho great lard corner in 1883 and
lost millions in its collapse, shot him
self this morning at his homo on Na
tional avenue, just out sldo of the city,
nnd wab found dead in tho bnth room
of his his house at 11:35 o'clock. Ho

McUcoch's domestic troubles un
doubtedly led him to tako his life. It
was announced yesterday that his
wife was about to bring suit for di
vorce on tho ground of incompatibili
ty of temper, and it is well known to
their acquaintances that their married
life had not been happy and they had
lived apart for somo time.
McUeoch was a man who had ex
perienced many reverses and gone un
daunted through trials that would
havo broken down most men. but do
mestic scandal was moro than he could
bear and immediate cause of his sui
cide was no doubt tho making publio
of tho fact of tho impending divorce.
No man for years was better known
on the Chicago nnd Milwaukee Boards
of trade than Peter McGcoch. Ho was
a daring speculator up to tho disas
trous lard deal of 1883, when ho at
tempted to corner tho lard of tho
country and was burled under tho
load. Daniel Wells, jr., of Milwaukee
wus interested in tho deal, und a long
and acrimonious law suit followed.
After the failure of the lard corner,
McGcoch dropped out of tho specula
tion, and devoted his time to his
street railway lines up to I860, when
ho sold to a Pittsburg syndicate,
headed by Mr. Byan of Now York,
Since then he has devoted himself to
his various interests, which are of
considerable magnitude

though iipw Biirroundcd largely by

however, has auddonly como over thla
tlmo-honorcd landmark, and to-day tho
FJrBt Presbyterian church of Washing

its nowly installed pastor, la every Sun

in hopes of boing nblo to wodgo tholr

People all over tho country nro won
dering whether Dr. Talmngc, in mov
ing tp tho Nntlpnal Capital, and1 in ex
changing his Brooklyn resldenco for a
Iioueo in Washington, hns actually di
vorced himself frpra all ccnncctlpn With,
tho onat. Dr, Talmago was recently in
terviewed on this subject by a reporter
of thla paper nnd tho reverend gontlo
man nld that as long as his editorial
Chair hnd two legs in Now York and
two lege In Washington ho could never
bp ccnaldored na having severed nil his
ccnnoctloiiB With tho metropolis. "Tho
Christian Herald," ho Bald, "with itu
wide clrculutipn, is a, tremendnus power
for gepd," and as Ipng ob the Lord gavo
him health and atrongth ho would wrlto
for that paper In fact, ho would bo In
his editorial Chair at tho Bible Heitso
moro frequently now than ever. Con
tinuing, tlio genial preacher said:
"There la no paper irt America that
wields a moro potential Influence for
good than Tho Christian Horald, With a
circulation of nearly two hundred thou
sand coplco weekly, Nothing hut death
shall separate mo front it. Dr. Klopsch,
its proprlotor, is a man ot extraordinary
enterprise. This year besides printing
Tho Christian Herald every week ia
beautiful colors, a veritable enchant
ment fer the oyq, ho offers as a premium
a complete library, consisting of ten
eplcndld volumes, full of Interest and
full of entertainment, with an elegant
beokcaso, dellvcrod freo of all expense,
togother with tho paper itself, fifty-two
times, for tho moderate sum of $3.
Hereafter let no nemo in America ho
without a library.
I asked Dr. Talmago whether ho could
recommend tho library to people who
contemplated securing it, and ho said
unhesitatingly, "I know every book.
They wero carefully and thoughtfully
prepared, cither specially written or
compiled by most eminent literary men,
ami, thoro is not a weakling among
"How aro tho peoplo to secure thia
great library, and this wonderful paper
of yours?"
"Simply by sending $3 to Tho Chris
tian Horald at 888 to 835 Bible House,
Now York City, and by return mnll they
will bo delighted with tho result. Ever
since my boyhood, I'yo had a passion
for books; I lovo them still couldn't
live unless surrounded by them. So
I'm something of a judge of good litera
ture. And In my whole life I havo never
Been a better selection la small compasa
than these ten books which Dr. Klopsch
has had prepared for his subscribers.
It's a perfect library of Information,
entertainment and amuBcment,and la
the climax oj the wonderfully enter
prising and far-seeing management
that has placed Tho Christian Herald
ahead of all competitors as a Christian
home Journal. Do you know," con
tinued Dr. Talmago, "that this paper
has in less than six years expended
nearly J70O.O00 in various beneficences
at home and abroad?"
Just then Miss Talmage camo in to
call her distinguished father tq dinner,
and the Interview ended.
