nnd was asked if he had the original of
the Garfield letter , to which ho re
I plied thit he did not , and whan ask
ed to'etata where it was , lie said that
it was in the possession of a friend.
W'uen a ked what tha name of hia
"friend was , ho .refused to answer.
Judge Davis told him that he would
be compelled to commit him for con
tempt of court , Rud ordered an officer
to take him in custody. Hart then
said that ho was willing to produce
the letter , but wanted a guarantee
that it .would ba returned to him.
Judge Davis gave the guarantee , and

cording to the letter of the subpoaaa
that the envelope bo produced , and
that it was important to the dofenie
that it remain lost. Judge Davis then

era in tbo office of Secret Service
Officer Drummond ) and they are pro-
aoanced accomplished forgeries.
Treasury officials in Washington , who
intpjcted the fraudulent bonde , could
only be positive of thnir character by
a detection of the duplicate , and the
joorly executed imitation of tha in-
liils of the receiving clerks in the
iroasury department. When the
bonds'wcre forced in 1868 they were

any one who would secure tha plate
upon which they were printed and
urn it into the treisUry. William
Wood was then chief of the secret
crrice bureau , and he procured a

wanted , and sent it to Washington.
? en thousand dollars of the reward
promised wns given h'm , and the
government consequently refused to

hat the plate Wood represented was
only a copy of the ono on which the
orgerles were produced. In treasury
ircles the impression prevailed that
he plate wanted is still in the hands
of counterfeiters , and the question is
aised whether it was that used in the

rodits the theory , and thinks that the

LONDON , October 28 1 a. m.
There is in England a decided feeling ,
which is fast growing , that there is
something wrong in Ireland ; tint she
has wrongs of which repeated famines
and protests have failed to convince
the English goveremenr , whether
liberal or conservative. Ireland de
mands better landlords and homo
rule The English people have in
terested themselves in Bulgaria and
Montenegro , but so far hava refused
to consider the condition ol Ireland ;
but the assassinations are compelling
England's attention , and they are not
likely to end with the projected ar
rests. The matter of retoliation haa
been discussed among the leading
home rulers , and It is possible that for"
every arrest made there will be re-
Jinger Jotin Hughbsnlu j
prisale. The land leaguers are strong
enough to do this , and they find sympathizers
pathizors among all classes in Eug
lind , not only among the radicals
but among the liberals , and the farm
ing class in gener.il. The Times o
yesterday says that visitors to tha roy
al arsenal at Woolwich find at th
present time a special interest in the
manufacture of buckshot which is oc
cupying a number of h nds. The
last tlmo those smill bullets were
made was during the preparation fo
the Ashnntoe campaign , when they
Were supplied to the native auxiliar
ies. Since that time it haa been prin
cipally required for the use of guard
and prison wardens , being more likely
to wound , disable or frighten insub
ordinate prisoners than to take thei
lives. For thin merciful reason th

The next president will probably
have it in his power to appoint a ma
jority of the judges of the supreme
court. Justices Hunt and Clifford are
both suffering from paralytic strokes ,
and it ia not probable that they will
remain upon the bench much longer.
Justice Swayno is 75 years old , and
Justice Strong is 72. It is eaid that
both of them contemplate retiring , ns
they i.ave the right to do. Justice
Miller has been on the bench twenty
years , is G5 yea-a of age , and has the
right to retire. Justice Bradley is 67 ,
nnd will probably remain on the
bench some years yet. From this it
appears that should the party which
puccccds the present administration
desire to effect a change in the supreme
premo court , It can be done without
the necessity of legislation to that end.

"On to Oklahoma , " haa bean for a
year past , the rallying cry of several
lawless freo-bootera and adventurers ,
by which they have assembled compa
nies of would-be intruders into the
Indian territory , the members being
mostly drawn from Kansas and Ar
kansas with a few from other states.
Our reports of Sunday Rave the ac
count of the reoant arreat of another
lot of thcao intruders who were pros- '
pectin in the territory , preparatory
to laying claima/and of their expulsion
from the Indian nation. In the light
of these events a few facts obtained by
f ur reporter to diy from Mr. Charles
Smith Brown , an intelligent half-
broecl citizen of the Cherokee nation ,
who pasaod through the city en route
Io LOIMII , Utah , cmnotbutbo of iu-
' 'Our countrj' , as n whole , " said Mr.
Brown to our reporter , "compares fa
vorably in the matter of natural re
sources , with any other region of sim
ilar extent on thu continent , and were
tliu plan contempt itcd by Senator
Vest in his bill before the last con
gress , for a division of the territory ,
carried out , it would open up to aet-
tlemoH hundreds of thousands of
acres of 'hu finest grnz'ng , agricultu
ral and timber Ian : ! nil the American
continent , and develop a v.-.nt amount
of iiiiiit-r.il we.ilili , whoso existence is
either nut known at all , or else
only to tint Indians. That there are
copper , coal , both bituminous and an
thracite , plumbago , lead , silver and
irold to bo found in the territory in
paying quantities is a fa3t , concerning
which thuro is no opportunity for dis
pute. Men havc gained a residence
by marrying into the tribe * , whose
solo purpoec was to secure a location
in order that , when the territory is
opened up , they can avail themselves
of their knowledge of the wherea
bouts of the rich mineral deposits.
So confident are they of the value of
the lodes within their knowledge that
they are willing to wait almost any
number of years for this consumma
tion. The natives are well aware of
the existence of this mineral wealth ,
but they carefully guard it as a most
profound secret. "
What pardon of the territory is
actually open to settlement ) " asked
"Thero is no pretense among any
reasonable men to a right to occupy
any portion of onr lands except the
strip of territory known as Oklahoma ,
which conpriaca a section about 300
milein length from northji o south and an
average width from east to weat of 200
miles , including all of the Cherokee
c iuntry west of the 9Gth meridian , of
the Creeks west of the 97th and of Iho
others west of the 98th , obtained by
the government by treaty in I860.
The entire acreage of the landd thus
obtained from the tribes , not including
that which was gotten from the Cherokees -
rokees , is something over fourteen
million and they embrace a vast
variety of soil and climate , and hare
within their area the capability to pro
duce almost every class of graiu and
fruit which ia grown in the states
between the gulf and the St.
Lawrence river. The southern portion
is rich in fertile bottom lands and
sloping plains , while from the Wichita
Mountains there flows an innumer
able number of streams , which , being
never dry , afford an inexhaustible
eupply of water at all seasons of the
year , even during periods of the
greatest drought. North of this
range of mountains , and up to the
Kansas line , there is an almost un
broken pUin , which is travenod
by some of the finest rivers en the
continent. On the majority of these
streams are timbered bluffs , and be
tween these rivers there are expanses
which arepriirie-like in their smooth
ness , and general appsatanco. As a
rule , the timber on the bluff * is of a
very valuable kind , and were the
country settled , thcss accumulations
would afford minoaof wealth. "
"With the exception of a strip in
the old Creek reservation the soil of
this Oklahoma region is of a very high
character. Cotton and tobacco can be
grown to great advantage in its south
ern portion ; and all the other cereals
and fruits peculiar io the states can be
grown in the section north of the Ciai-
arrou np to the Kansas line. There
is one exception to the inviting fea
tures of this section ; and this is found
in the region about the mouth of the
Cimarron , where the country becomes
hilly , sandy and covered with scrub
oaks and other dwarf growths of tim
ber. It is a region practically closed
to the world , there being no roads ,
only blind traih which can be
utilized by horsemen or footmen
who are thoroughly familiar with
the section. Within this uninviting
and inaccessible locality has been for

territory is , to-day , in a worse condi

of the infernal regions. If a man who
commits a murder in caught , nobody
dares appear againat himfor the reason
that it ia certain dath to do anything

this rule ; if a man appears against an

"I should suppose that the people
In rich a country lived 'in cloverl' "
"It may bo laid down as a rule that
the people of that territory do not
live ; that Is to say , they do not live
like civilized communities. They have
within their reach everything which is
accessary to health and comfort ; they
have a most fruitful aoil.tn which they
can raise anything ; and yet , as a rule ,
their food the year through is fried fat
pork and corn tfread , aud their drink
is the impure and unhealthful waters
of sloughs and st gnant itreanos. It
ia true that an abundance of the vety

at any point by the sinking of wclh ,
but the digging of a well is something
which involves hbor , and labor is the

"Would the people of your nation

"No ; all the full bloods In the na
tion are bitterly opposed to anything
like a change , though mo t of the
balf-breeds are in favor of having the
territory sectionized. In addition to
the half-breeds who favor a change ,
there is every white man , and every
man who is in business in the entire
country ; but the fact that those who
Favor a change are in a majority cats
no figure. There is not a man in the
Cherokee nation wfto dares to avow
nimsalf aa an advocate of any change
in the present condition of affairs , forte
to do BO would bo to sign his death-
warrant. Such a man wonld ba ahot
to death with as little compunction as
would be a mad dog. "
"In my opinion the government
should nt once pass a bill in accord
ance with the treaties with the var
ious tribes , and should establish
United States court ; when this has
once been put into operation there
would boa relaxation of the political
terrorism which pervadei the terri-
tor ; snd there would speedily be lib
erated a public opinion which would
demand the scctionizing of the terri
tory , and its nppnincr to settlement. "
