; ASIIINOT0't , Atiust 1.-'rho secretary
of the Interior to day revoked the order of
; withdrawal of Indemnity lands for the bone-
, lit of the Atlantlo it l'aclilc railroad corn-
pany and In a 1otg letter to the commissioner
A. . . - of the general land otflco directs that they
niay be restored to settlement under the pro-
. wnhitiofl nd homestead laws. It is stated
. that between , OOOO ® and OOOOOOO acres
p- are involved in this deolsion in the case of
: . the Atlantic tt I'acIllc cornoany atone. 'rho
order also applies to Ul of thn other railroads
r mused in the secretary's circular of
,4 May 23 last except the i3t. Paul ,
! dinneapolis & Manitoba , tim hastings &
Dakota , the St. Paul and the Wlnoua t St.
I'etcr. These arcs still under consideration
' end undecided. Secretary Lamar's letter ,
which is very long , says lie has considered
the shovinc made by the Atlantic & facitic
railroad , and reviews in detail the sections of
the act granting the land. After this review
he says "It is auparent from the irantitg
' . clause of the said act that the graut was not
one of quantity , but for a certain number oC
. sections in place , nnd If not there then it
gave the privilege of looking for the do-
hlciuticy within restricted limits. Therefore -
fore , If the company does not
get th' , full amount of sections
wiUihn the primary limit , and fails to wake
np Its losses in the secondary limits , there is
no violation of contract anywbero that I can
see , but only j.ho happening of a contingency
- . pialniy coutompIateL by the irantIng act ,
subject to which tl company made Its con-
tract. It lornanifost that ( ho act gave no
sPecial authority or direction to the execu-
tlvo.ta withdraw the said lands , and when
euch withdrawal was made it was done
by virlue of a general authority over
such matters possessed by the mere-
tary f the Interior in the exercise
of his dIcretlon ; so that , voro the withdrawal -
drawal to be revoIed , no law would be violated -
ted , no contract broken. The company would
be placid exactly in thepositlon in whiob the
law gave it , and deprived of no rights acquired -
quired thereunder , It would uphold lta
right to , oleet indemnity for the lost lands ,
lut in.so . dting , it would hayc no advantage
over the settler as it now has , in contrayen-
tion of the policy of the government , in do-
.nlai of the rights unquostionaWy conferred
Ipon the settlers by the land laws of the
country , and especially protacted by the
promises of the granting act under consider-
The secretary then answers , at great
length , some of the iolnts made by the railroad -
road company in ita answer which roqiro
the government to select other granted lands
as indemnity , and shows that the letter of
the law has been strictly complied with.
After quoting at length the original contract -
tract between tim government and the rail-
roau ho says : "Criticism upon the allocd
shortcomings of tiio government with ro-
$ itct to this grant cornea with an iii grace
froni this company , 'rue people , whom the
government repreOnt have some rights under
the grant M yell as the company. On full
conidsrat1on of the whole subject I con-
elude that the withdrawal for indemnity purposes -
poses , if possible under the law , waa solely
by.virtuo of executive authority , and may be
revoked by the same authority ; that such
revocation would not be In violation of either
. , c law or equity , and that said hanUs having
boon aolong withhold for the benefit of the
Company , the time has arrived when public
policy and justice demand the withdrawal
should be revoked and some regard had for
the rights of those seeking anu needing
- homes on the public domain. "

Union Iron works was a fair price for the

the bid not being in oxces ot this fair cost ot

to the Bri.I-1hii : , Ulobe.Domocrat prints a
sensational 8tory about the blood succosstr

has the marks of a romance. but lacks con-
firmatloii. About twenty-live years ago , the
little town of Nauvoo , Ill. , the licatlquarters
of the Mormon church of the MIssissippi
valley , was startled by a story in which
Joseph Smith , in 1812 , fhured as the lover of
a ilashing English maiden of a wealthy
family , believers In Mommoitism , and who
wore travelling in America , 'rho prophet
vlstied to take the girl as his "spiritual"
who , and she consented with tlio condition
that If she bore a son be should eventually
become the head of the Mormon church.
The child . was born , and for
fear of foul play fi'om the other children of
the Smith family , the mother and child has.
toned to England and there educated the
child in Cambridge university , the proper
credentials havlnr been given to secure all
rights. The story is now beIng published by
La Baron ilaviuton a wan of note In the
Mormon church at gait Lake City for the
purpose , It is thonht , of injuring the pros-
lwcts of the ambitious Smith of the present
day , and perhaps with the Intention of
springing the central tigure of the story , vhio
would iiow betorty-ilvo years old , before the

story was concocted twenty-bye years ago in
Dr. Hall's chico , to his knowledge but not by
him. Lie claims to have ample evidence in
lila possession to provo the whole thing a

Cami give a $1,000 to whomever I please , "
:18 : tIme only rxplanatiomm of thin eomisldn-
ration of the gift is imot satisfactory. Time
discovery of both almost slimmuitnncousiy ,
of the extravagant muistakes in addition
is strati"o and marvelous.
B. B. Myers , the archiitct , told tim
chnimnmmn : of time board of public works ,
that Breimnan could clear m25OO0 in performing -
forming the work itt the price accepted.
Myers himself is now accused openly of
aimling Brennan in his cilorts. 'l'he otmt-
side contractors charge lila : with having
been intomitiomimmhly absent from meetings
of itmmportaimce , which it was lils duty to
attend for time uurpose of cxplmuinin and
construing time full mcanimig and intent
of several of time plans and speemlications.
Tlmey say time failure of such explanation
to them , a favor enjoyed by Brennan
caused them a doubt In many places and
to be on the safe side , ocoufltS for the
excess of their bids over Brennan's.
'I'hey further accuse Myers of favoritism
to Brennan iii time fact , that while the
contract for digging the city ball fotmn-
'Jations ' was awarded to itegan Bros. ,
lJrcnmamm is the real contractor , and that
notwithstanding time contract calls for a
completion of hIs work by July 1 , Myers
as architect has made no complaint of
Mistakes seeni to be contagious
throughout time entire aiuiuir , For iii-
stance , section 3 , ordinance 1458 , city
laws , roads as follows :
It shall be the duty of time board of public
works of Omaha to make contracts iii behalf
of said city for the performammco of all sucim
works and the erection of all such Improve-
merits as may be ordered by time mayor and
'lImo hiftlm instruction furnialmed by
Myers to the city lmull : bidders us :
lachm bidder ss'iii be reqmmlrect to accommmpany
imis jiroposal with a certified check for time
simm o $1,000 payable to the urealdunt of time
coltimmioui coummoil of limo city ofOiuaima or wIth
a bond In like aumoummt , wIth two or more
sureties to be approved by said city coumicil ,
conditioned that if hmis said proposal shall be
accepted by said city council and the contract -
tract awarded to litum lie will witimimm ten days ,
eta.Said a prominent lawyer : "This In-
struation furnished by Myers as the city's
agent is widely at variance with the ordinance -
dinance , making the acceptance and
award a condition precedent to ae-
tion by the council. and Brennan might
take advantage of it in law by claiming
an illegal act done by the board in ease
be wanted to ayold the acceptance of time
contract. The instruction contained in
time circular to bidders was all the bidder
was required to observe. Any discrepancy
between it and thmo law rests with Myers
as the city's agent anti the city cannot
take advnmita'e ' of his nmistake to the pro-
judion of thme'Iiidder. "
One of ttio defeated contractors who
rcw very donumncintory of time entire ac-
tmon , was renminded by time Bun timmut time
city could lose nothing , as if Brenimun
tiechinod to fimhilil time contract mus awarded
the city had his certiiied check.
"Certified c'hmeck ; what good is that a
Week tufter it is certified ? " said time con-
tractor. "The hank certilicd that the
ccck was good time day it stampcd it ; it
don't Intend that stick cortiiictute will last
forever. If lhroanamm chooses to with.
draw his money , the cmty has no security
"Timis mmmattor , " said one of time board ,
"has already cost time cityover mm hundred
dollars for advertisiuo and should be
settled by the comnpulsn ( of Brennan to
do time work at his first figures. "
"If the council allow immm the contract
at time Increased ilgures covering his at-
loged mistake , ' ' said a prominent citizen
'ttmo city will be robbed of just 39,0Od. '
