WASHI.VOTON , D. C. , July 15. )
A gentleman who arrived In Washington
( o-day from Indianapolis gives me some news
respecting General Harrison and what ho
will likely do during the next few weeks.
"I saw General Harrison on Friday , " said
lie , "and I was astonished to BOO the changes
wrought by the work which has developed
upon him slnco the Chicago convention. I
hud not seen him for some time prior to my
visit at his house on Friday. The general is
n very rugged man and has good health , but
his face begins to grow thin and ho shows
the loss of sleep and the wear of his con
tinual Intercourse with the people. Ho has
departed from the usual routine of presi
dential candidates and sees every
body who calls upon him. Indianapolis is
one of the largest railroad centers In the
United States and nearly all through passen
gers from the east to the west and from the
west to the cast pass through the Hooslcr
capital. These of a political turn who are
republicans almost Invariably stop off at
Indianapolis to cull upon the presidential can
didate , and then the thousands of excursion
ists who nro pouring into Indianapolis to
visit him are all received and given personal
attention. They como from 0 o'clock in the
morning until 1 or3 ! o'clock at night , routing
him out of bed ana keeping him out , so that
ho does not have more than llvo or six hours
of actual sleep In every twenty-four. Mrs.
Harrison also begins to show untnls-
taknblo traces of wear , ana I am not
Buprlsed that both of thorn are reported 111.
There has not been a man , woman or child
turned away from the Harrison house slnco
the nomination until they have been re
ceived by the host and hostess. Just as I
was leaving the house on Friday General
Harrison Insisted that 1 should remain for
dinner , and in the request Mrs. Harrison
joined. I refused to do BO because I did not
want to intrude upon them , and suggested
that they were being subjected to imposi
tions , wncn Mrs. Harrison said : " 'No impo
sition ut all ; wo uro keeping open house a
boarding house and are prepared and nro
glad to servo meals at all hours from 0 in the
morning till midnight , without money and
without price. "
"I think the General and Mrs. Harrison in
tend to slip out of Indianapolis for two or
three weeks and go to some eastern resort ,
where they can bo by themselves and get
vway from the callers not that they wantto
escape the crowd , but that they can got some
rest and the general will have an opportunity
to write his letter of acceptance. I talked to
him on this tmbjcct , and while ho did not
glvo mo to understand directly what ho in
tended to Buy on any iiucstlon , I am sure it
will bo one of the clearest and strongest letters -
tors ever written. There will bo no question
when ho writes this letter about
his position on Chinese or other
pauper immigrations , nor what ho
thinks of the foreign policy of the present
administration , his ideas of the labor ques
tion or the financial iasuo and the main points
of the Impending campaign. Ho will take n
position on the tariff which will mnko every
protectionist clap his hands with Joy. Mr.
Dlulno , I understand , has written General
Harrison a letter on the subject of foielgn
affairs , and what has been done by the
present administration which the Plumed
Knight terms pusillanimous , and you may
expect some statements in the letter of
acceptance ns to what our foreign policy
should bo which will have the true American
ring to them.
Among the numerous changes in stations
made In the adjutant general's ufiivu the past
week is one which has oxcltcd some curiosity.
That is the return of Colonel Chauncoy Mc-
Keover , assistant adjutant general , who left
hero less than three years ago on assignment
to the Pacific slope. The regular term of
duty extends over four years , when a change
under the regulations is made. On the regu
lar shaking up , however , Colonel McKcover ,
lifter but thrco years away fromjhcrercturns
nnd takes the place of Major Green.who goes
out , under the four years clause , to Fort
Omaha. For the first time two colonels are
detailed ut headquarters nnd army officers
are somewhat puzzled over the detail.
Colonel John C. Kelton , who Is Adjutant
General Drum's immediate assistant here ,
succeeded McKcover hero three years ago
und his term docs not expire for a year.
Colonel and Mrs. McKcover both have a
great tunny friends nnd nro very popular in
society. It is therefore no more than natural
that the colonel should have been very do
Birous of getting buck to Washington and to
have many good friends influential with the
secretary of war to help him. A senatorial
friend of the colonel hints that there is a
stronger reason for the return. Adjutant
General Drum is to bo retired in May next ,
and the question of the succession is already
being discussed. The senator mentioned
believes that Colonel .MeiCeever comes
hero to contest the appointment to
succeed General Drum , which , as a colonel ,
helms a perfect right to do. General John
C. Kelton is next in rank according to length
of service , although the army register shows
McKcever to have { graduated from West
Point two years earner. The president is
not bound , however , to follow uny precedent
in making a selection from the colonels , und
eau select ono over another. Vincent lias a
great many powerful friends , among thorn
Senator Gorman , of Maryland , who may in-
fhiouco them In lib favor. The choice
will bo between Kelton , MeKeover
nnd Vincent. The last is adjutant gen
eral of the department of Dakota.
All are stiong in influence' and friends ,
nil have line records , and cither vtould'mako
n splendid brigadier general. Thu only ai-
vantage , possessed by any ono ot them is
Gvncral Kolton's length of service.
Next Thursday evening has been set aside
by the house for the consideration of meas
ures reported from the military committed.
The measure increasing the number of offi
cers for college details from forty to sixty
will bo ono of the first brought forward.
This bill has already passed the scnnt" , as
have also the bills appropriating f 100,000. for
completing Forts NiObrara nnd Uobluson ,
Nebraska ; appropriating $150,000 for the bar
racks and quarters nt the National Soldiers *
Volunteer homes providing for aid to state
Boldlors homes , and authorizing , the presi
dent to confer biovct rank1 forgallant service
in Indian campaigns , all of which will ho
pushed for consideration If there U sufficient
The work with the Sioux , and which is to
begin in Dakota during the present week is
likely to be especially difficult and Intricate.
Under the terms of this net , lately unproved ,
looking-lo the reduction of the Great Sigux
reservation , the consent of two-thirds of the
ndult Indians must bo obtained under the
treaty of 1WJS , before any steps looking to the
allotment of lunds and the opening to settle
ment of the remainder of the reservation can
bo taken. The Indians to bo negotiated with
number in the aggregate , utlult males nnd
fuffiulos nnd children , n little over twenty-
two thousand , located nt five different agen
cies. The tusk would bo much lighter It the
Bioux to be negotiated with could bo dcnlt
with en masse nt every agency , but this is
'Impossible. They ure split up In bands , each
With lift chiefs , each with its different views
and tendencies , and each under the guidance
of leaden. These hostilities and jealousies
H\ul \ all KQ to render successful negotiations
difficult. Lack of knowledgq-of English am }
hick of education still further hamper the
commissioners. Thus nt Chcyenno river
thercnro credited 0,000 Sioux divided Into five
bands. Of these 8M ) can read but only 300 of
them can speak rough English to make them
selves Understood. At Pine Hldgo there nro
5,000 Sioux , divided into thrco bands , the
strongest of which Is headed by lied Cloud
nnd n group of head men , utterly hostile to
the proposed reduction of the reservation.
This band contains 4,200 Indians. Hut 1,400
of the whole number acceded to the agency
can rend , and less than -150 can si > cuk
English. At Hose Bud there are 7rUO
Sioux , divided into six bands , 175 of whom
can read nnd 170 speak English. At Stand
ing Kock there are on the rolls 4,550 Sioux ,
divided into five bands , of whom fiOO can
read and 175 speak English. At Ccow
Creek thcro are U'J50 Sioux , di
vided into two bands , of whom 4M ) read and about WM ) speak English. Thcro
nro about twenty different bands with which
the commission must negotiate lit order to
satisfy the vanity nnd overcome the hostility
of chiefs and headmen and satisfy the terms
of the treaty. Of the ultimate success of
the mission there seems to bo no doubt , but
the task is sccontt to none over Imposed
upon an embassy In delicacy and difficulty.

Iowa People Combining to Fight

Stringent Measures to Ho Adopted to
Iteleuse the CltlzciiR of tlio
State From tlic Grasp
of Corporations.
The lown Itnllroad .Problem.
DCS MUINES , July 15 [ Special to Tun
HER. ] The railroad problem Is no nearer
n solution than it was- month ago. lioth
sides seem determined to c-irry the light to
the bitter end. The people of this stnto were
never BO united In favor of n measure , and it
is easy to predict what the outcome will bo.
If the commissioners should bo defeated In
the courts , the legislature will bo convened ,
and there is no doubt whatever about the ac
tion of that body. Some of the most strin
gent railroad laws over devised will go on
the statute books with the emergency clause
attached , which will put the laws Into effect
at once.
Sonio corporation organs liavo commenrcd
a system of belittling Iowa , and classifying
her people with the communists and ns "mak
ing war on all invested interests , " apparently
with the purpose of inducing capitalists to
withdraw from this state. That Iowa has
been "wondrous kind" to her railroads goes
without saying , but lot us examine the matter
In detail. The following table taken from
official sources will furnish some idea of the
prolits of the railroad business in Iowa for
the past two years. The rullroids admit
their net earnings to have been as given here ,
and the amounts uro certainly not over the
mark. No reliable data prior to 18T8 is at
band , as the railroads were not required to
file their itemized statements before that
A glance at this table will show that the
railroads have made n clear profit of almost
C per cent on their entire stock und debt for
the past ten years. The stock and debt about
cqnul each other , nnd represent more thnn
twice the amount of capltul nctunlly Used in
constructing the roads. The capitalization
averages about $40X ( > p to the ratio , whllo few
ruads in this state cost half of that sum per
mile. Tho'Iown Midland , now part of the
Northwestern , and the Des Moiuos & Fort
Dodge roads were built about the sumo time ,
through very similar territory , und the
former cost & ! 1OCO per mile while the latter
was stocked at STO.OOO.
Ono of the lust roads built in this state
the Chicago , St. Paul & Kansas City ,
formerly known us the "Diagonal" was
bonded for 504,030 per milo , while the build
ers swore in n Judicial investigation that it
only cost about $15,000. It is snfo to say
that the average cost of building and equip
ping the railroads of Iowa did not average
over $ JO,000 per milo , or a total of $150,030-
000. How largo n part of this was n frco
gift to the railroad managers from the people -
plo will never be known. But the pro
verbial generosity of lown people wns ex
tended towards her railroads in n remarkable
dorrce. Five per cent taxes were every
where voted , nnd bonuses were exacted
from every considerable town and hamlet.
More thnn $10,000,000 worth of land was
granted to the railroads by congress , which
have already been disposed of and thousands
of acres still remain. Then hundreds of
miles of siding , double tracks nnd extensions
were built and charged up to the "expense
account , " us given above , and which was u
legitimate part of the net profits. How much
the railroads -havo made out of town sites
cannot bo ascertained , but it reaches far into
the millions. The gifts , bonuses , land grants ,
frco rights of wav and other subsidies ro-
colvea by the roads cannot fall short of $50-
000,000 , which would leave an investment of
only * 10 ; > ,0"X,000 ) in the roads of outside capi
tal. On tills sum the railroad managers
charged lost year , as may bo seen by the
auovo table , more than 13 per cent , and have
been making about the same average rate for
the past ten years.
The amount of local freight carried In Iowa ,
and which would bo nffected by the schcdulo
established by the commissioners , as near as
cnn bo estimated , annually amounts to
W.000,000. A reduction of ono-third on this
trafllc would largely increase the volume of
business nnd thus not materially reduce the
receipts. But if it did not the railroads would
after submitting to the contemplated reduc
tion , would still realize the munificent sum of
$11,000,000 nnnuallv ns net prpilt on their In-
vestmentof $100,000,000.
In matters of taxation the state has been
extremely liberal with the railroads , as the
above table will prove. Farm property in
tills state is assessed nt fully 50 per cent of
its vnluo und personal property at nearly tlio
same rate. Railroad property is assessed at
n lower rate by nearly one-half thun nny
other kind of property. With ono breath
when estimating their profits the managers
claim the railroad property In Iowa is worth
350,000,000 , und with the next they swear
that it is worth , for purposes of taxation ,
about 15,000,000. Tlio railroads are actually ,
by their own admission , making 83 per cent
interest on their assessed valuation , while the
net profit on the furmer property , listed nt
nearly $350,000,000 , according to the most re
liable data at hand , does not reach 4 per cent.
This condition of affairs is certainly enough
to arouse the wrath of the "granger , " who
sees bankruptcy staring him in the face with
no hope of relief , except by u reduction in
freight rates to tbo nearest und best markets.
The Jobbers , wholesale dealers and millers
who have long been discriminated against in
favor of the largo cities nro not less
determined to secure relief than the farmers ,
and are a unit in sustaining ttio action of the
railroad commissioners in reducing the rates.
The election of three commissioners will
tuko place this full , and the situation assumes
more and moro of a square railroad light as
the canvass advances. Tlio anti-monopolists
will favor the nomination of Messrs. Smith
and Campbell , republicans , und possibly ,
ulso , of Mr. Dcy , the democratic member of
the present commission. Tbo railroad cap
pers are masquerading with both parties ,
threatening in ono iustunco to knife the
whole republican ticket if the anil's control
the nominations , and to support the demo
crats. Their present policy is to bring out a
largo number of candidates pud dead-lock
thoconvenUon , if possible , nnd spfi'H n dark
horse at the proper moment. Fulling ia ! UJj
they will inako all sorts of promises anu
pledges to secure some weak-kneed candi
dates on both tickets. Thcro is little doubt
tliat the entire railroad vote will bo thrown
Just ai the managers desire. Chairman
Hunter ana many leading democrats would
like to secure their support , and no doubt a
secret understanding will bo reached be
tween the leaders.
But tlio thousands of democratic farmers
who belong to tha alliance nro watching the
progrcsvpf events with both eyes and will
never consent to bo delivered td any corpora
tion combine oil election day. Notwithstaud-
ng there will bPpcrhnps twenty candidates
joforo the republican convention , it Is not
believed that It will bo i > osstblo to defeat
Messrs. Smith nnd Campbell for the nomina
tion. If nominated they will receive the
solid support of the 14,0 , > X ) union labor voters ,
who hnvo refused to set up n candidate
against them , nnd this will vdry nearly make
up for nil possible railroad defection. Should
the democrats rcnomlnato Mr. Dey , as they
probably will , It Is probable that n sufficient
number of greenbuckers nnd republicans will
vote for him lo Insure his election in order
that the responsibility of dealing with the
railroads inuy bo divided between the two
leading political parties. HEX.

Inw put on the statute books by n granger

constables who used to make quite nn In

revenue diminished us the saloons were

the opening of btores , the sale of cigars or
anything else on Sunday. Last Monday
they nrrcsted several cigar dealers who had
sold cigars the day before , and announced
that on Sunday they would stop everything ,
oven street curs , from running. It was re
ported that they would bo nt tlio newspaper
offices nt 12 o'clock last night to prevent the

ingly the publishers of the different papers
had npi > cal bonds ready , while the employes
were aching for n chance to turn the hose on

Every cigar store has been closed , though
