Tlie Seed for Drouth Sufferers.
WASHINGTON" , March 9. I saw Con
gressman Pickler of South Dakota in
President Harrison's room the other
morning. He wanted to ascertain what
would be done with the § 150,000 ap-
prooriated on the agricultural appor
tionment bill , by mistake , for the pur
chase of seed grain for the drouth
sufferers in Nebraska and South Da
kota , etc. It will be remembered that
this was incorporated in the agricul
tural appropriation bill through an
error of the engrossing clerks of the
"The money will not be disbursed
at ail , ' " said Major Pickler , after talk
ing to the president , "for the reason
that it was not the intention of con
gress to appropriate the money , and ,
you see , the president having author
ity to correct such an error , ho will do
so. It was the'fault of Mr. Cannon of
Illinois , chairman of the committee on
appropriations , that we do not get that
money , " continued Major Pickler , 'and
I wish you would emphasize that fact.
The committee on agriculture were all
in favor of it , and the members of the
committee on appropriations all fa
vored it excepting Cannon , who has
always had an aversion to our country
and never let an opportunity escape
to kick us. A chairman of a commit
tee having a bill in charge can strangle
almost anything at the last moment of
a session. Cannon exercised that
power most arbitrarily. The next
congress will do nothing.
Enlarging the < Uaiision.
WASHINGTON , March 4. Mr. Blilli-

JHandcrnon at Out * IVlth Morgan. .
WASHINGTON ; March 9. It has just {
leaked out that on the last day of the
session of congress there was a decidedly -
edly spirited colloquy between Senator
Manderson and his former prdtegc ,
Rev. Mr. Morgan , the commissioner of
Indian affairs , which resulted in the
senator ordering the commissioner
from the committee room.
Although Marderson had nothing to
do with Morgan's appointment , he is
responsible for his conlirmationiby the
senate , and has been his staunchest
defender. While Mprgan's nomina
tion was pending there was a great
deal of opposition in the senate from
the Grand Army because ho was court
martialed and dismissed from the ser
vice during the war and from other
sources for other reasons , but Mander
son took an interest in him because he
once taught school in Nebraska and
pulled him through. Morgan made
proper acknowledgements at the time
and has since professed great respect
for the senator , but nothing can recon
cile them now.
The trouble was about Buffalo Bill.
Morgan refused to allow Colonel Cody"
to have any more Indians for'his Wild
West show. Manderson attempted to
induce him to reconsider his decision.
'Morgan was stubborn and , after a long
interview , gave as his only reason that
some person had told him Buffalo Bill
was a very bad man and exercised an
evil influence over the Indians. The
senator asked the name of the person.
Morgan refused to give it. The sen
ator asked the privilege of confronting' '
him. The commissioner declined.
Manderson said he had known Colonel \
Cody intimately for twenty-two years ,
and pronounced the statements of the
anonymous witness unmitigated false
hoods. He called the attention of the
commissioner to letters from Generals
Grant , Sherman , Sheridan , Crook , Ter
ry , Howard , Schofield , Miles. Macken
zie and other generals of the army ,
testifying to the honorable character , ;
usefulness and ability of Colonel Cody ,
to letters from eight or ten governors
of states , a dozen or more senators , a
whole quorum of representatives , a
score of Indian agents , bearing wit
ness to the same effect , and said that
his colleague , Mr. Paddock , and hhn-
self with ail the Nebraska delegation
cordially and earnestly endorsed Col
onel Cody and would go on his bond'
for anything.
"Now I want to know , ' ' demanded
the indignant senator , "if you propose
to accent the evidence of one anony
mous witness , whom you will not per
mit us to see or even tell us his name.
against the testimony of the ablest and
most honored officers of the United
States army , the Nebraska delegation
and all the other witnesses I have
cited ? "
The commissioner said the anony
mous witness was a person in whom he
had great confidence , and declined to
faltcr his judgment.
"If that is the kind of judge you
are. " said the senator , "you are unlit.
to decide anything. You are unfit to
be trusted with official responsibility ,
and I want nothing more to do with
you. You may leave this room as
rapidly as you can. " '
The commissioner left , but after *
reaching his office he wrote an insolent
letter to Mr. Manderson , in which he
intimated that the latter had a pecuniary - .
niary interest at stake , and referred to ,
Colonel Cody as his "client. "
This letter the senator handed to ]
Secretary Noble , who overruled thej
decision of the commissioner and gave
Buffalo Bill permission to take a hun
dred Indians from the reservation.
What occurred at the interview be
tween the secretary and Commissioner
Morgan is unknown , but the secretary
was very indignant at his treatment of
Senator Manderson , and apologized
for it.
