NEwYonfe , October 29 1 a. m. Sir of the United States "bonds which were found in tha possession of Doyle when ho was arrested in Chicago cage last Wednesday , WCT.J yesterday critically examined by expert ongraV 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 delectedand Brockway wan convict ed of uttering them. 'lYo govern ment offoroct a reward of $25,000 to 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 > la'o which was said to be the one wanted , and sent it to Washington. ? en thousand dollars of the reward promised wns given h'm , and the government consequently refused to ( ay the remainder on the ground 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 iresont forgery. Mr. Drummond dis- rodits the theory , and thinks that the tew counterfeit was printed upon a ilito engraved for that particular work. rcrcleJfcti ' & If et Ecc.wt t. podul Dispatch to The Bee CHICAGO , October 29 1 n. m.

Swd ; l Dispatch to.Iha Be . 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 government has ordered that in nl possible cases of rioting , where tin police or military are compelled to w sortto4xrms , rifle .balls sjiall givi " " " Ji * r " * " * place to buckshot. t TEST AS1AT C NEWS.

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 the reporter. "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.

In all probability thh territory is , to-day , in a worse condi tion than any part of creation outaido 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 of the kind. There Is no exception to this rule ; if a man appears against an other , he does it knowing that hiionly salvation lies in leaving the territory the moment ho gets off the witness stand ; and oven then ho knows he must make extraordinary time to the nearest state line unless he wishes to carry away with him a chsr e of buck shot which will be sent into him from behind some tree or fallen log. " "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 beat drinking water can bo obtained at any point by the sinking of wclh , but the digging of a well is something which involves hbor , and labor is the ono thing which the full-blood rest- dent of Indian territory seeks to avoid. " "Would the people of your nation Favor the establishment of United States courts over your territory and [ laving it lectionized ? " "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.
