WASHINGTON. D. C. , August 7.
The failure of the Sioux commission to se
cure thu signatures of the Indians to any of
the agreements taken out by them Is very
mortifying to the Interior department ofil-
clals , for Secretary Vllas has taKcn a greater
interest In the success of the proposed open
ing of the reservation , than la anything elco
coming under hisadmliilslratlon. Be selected
his commission with a special reference to
their ability to deal with the Indians , but
flitch was his anxiety to secure an army
officer for the service that after Generals
Crook and Ruger declined to servo ho se
lected Captain Pratt , the superintendent of
the Carlisle school , for the place. It
Beems to have been , however , nn
unfortunate selection , nnd ofllcers of
the Interior department are inclined
to place upon Pratt'B shoulders the larger
ftharo of the responsibility for the present
attitude of the Indians.
"Pratt plunged right In there and at
tempted to bulldoze the Indians , " said an
angry official to-day , "and has not succeeded.
Ho Is a martinet and can do nothing except
In n severe way. Ho was captain in a ncuro
regiment before ho went to the school mid of
course ho could knock his men around as ho
saw lit. Then he got control of n large num
ber of Indian children at Carlisle and
there ho could boss things. Ho used
to treat people in this department
much the same way until ho cot
n set-back hero a whllo ago. Now ho has
gene at this work of delicate diplomacy llko
u bull In u China shop , nnd , of course , hu'll
This opinion of Pratt extends to several
other government departments that have had
dealings with him. TJio other members of
the commission , Judge Wright and Mr.
Cleveland , could , it Is thought , secure the
consent of the Indians if It was not for Pratt.
lUHIOATION Of 1IESE1IT IAMIS.
The house committee on appropriations has
recommended that the house refuse to con
cur in thu senate amendment to the sundry
civil bill mentioned some days ago in THE
BEE'S dispatches , making an appropriation of
$2JjXX ( ) ( ) to enable the directors of the geolog
ical survey to Inquire into the feasibility of
codstructing storage reservoirs for the Irri
gation of desert lands. The residents of
many Mates and territories In the west arose
so much interested in securing the reclama
tion of thcso hinds that in all likelihood the
pressure will bo too great for the committee
nnd the amendment will bo accepted.
Since it hus been demonstrated that
tills dry , sterile hind if irrigated would prove
to btftho best soil In this county , largo quan
tities have been taken up by speculators and
to head thcso people off , the commissioner ot
tlio general land oflico recommended the re
peal of the desert land hvw. As this law
makes irrigation and reclamation a condi
tion of securing the land , a repeal of this law
would stop reclamation and make it neces
sary for the government to enter the field.
AS It Is the cost of securing water for Irriga
tion is so great that a single individual cannot
nfTord to put in the plant for the
mere reclamation of his section. As n result
the laud frequently comes Into the hands of
large companies which control the watormip-
ply. To avert this the government will bo
compelled to take possession of the water
Biipply , and after reclaiming the lands sell
them at a fair price to settlors. The money
appropriated by the clause above referred to
simply supplies Information us to the cost
nnd feasibility of the project.

The Kansas City Stonecutters' Strike
Declared OH' .
K\N AS CITV , August 7. [ Special Tele
gram to TJII : BEE. ] Early last spring the
Htonccutter.s' union of Kansas City declared
a strike , and some two hundred stonecutters
quit the employers on March 1. They de
manded fiO cents per hour for eight hours
woik , and that every man who belonged to
the union , regardless of his ability , bo paid
that amount. The result was that the cut-
stone contractor ? formed mi organiration and
imported all the skilled labor necessary , the
only firm conceding to 'ho union's demands
being Norcross Bros. , who had the contract
for the Now York Lifo Insurancebuilding. .
Out of the 20J strilrors only a few have been
able to sccuro positions with local contrac
tors , and last evening the stonecutters' union
mot secretly at Tobencr's hall and formally
declared tlio strike off and advised the men
to get work nt the best prices possible. The
difficulty now is that the yards have all the
employes they need and are paying from >
to15 cents an hour , according to the ability
of the workman , and the contractors have a
definite understanding with each other not
to employ uulou men under any circum
The Topeka utonecuttcrs' union ordered a
strike at the same time , and 123 men walked
out ; but tholr places were filled by now men
from the east. The Topolta union also suc
cumbed and went back to work on the capi
tal building a week or ten days ago.

MR. CAMPBELL ON THE STAND
11 oil in 111 ney ISxaiiilnntlon of Mrs. 31u-
Klnnoy For tlic Shooting of J.
Sullivan Accident nt
The Ijiisi Day.
DE3 MOINES , la. , August 7. This was th -
last day In the railroad comml sioncis exam
ination. Commissioner Campbell was on the
stand , being called on to furnish figures from
which ho obtained hlj figures of the gross
earnings of the roads for the several years
from 1673 , showing n steady increase in the
earnings under the Granger law , except in
ono year. Tlio counsel wanted to know
whether the diminished construction of rail
roads In Iowa during the period of the
Granger law was not duo to that enactment.
Witness thought that thu determination of
those engaged In railroad management to get
even with the people for undertaking to con-
tiol railroads by legislation kept them from
extending their lines. A question followed
concerning the increase of tonnage on the
Hock Island road , nnd tlio cause thereof as
to whether the population affected It or not.
The commissioner did not think
that the population increased pro
portionately to tlio tonnage. The witness
was further questioned as to the values of
railroad property as shown in the commis
sioners' report , based on the market price in
Wall street and the net earnings. TUoro
wei o doubts ns to the accuracy of tlio former
basis , the variations as to the different roads
being o great. Witness examined the vari
ous rail toad reports to ascertain how many
had failed to earn enough to pay operating
expenses , interest and rental , varying from
five to sixteen in the different years. This
state of nlTalrs , the witness thought , was duo
partly to rate wars and partly to the building
of unprofitable railroads. Counsel read a
long extract from the report , in which thu
board spoke of demagogue shippers wanting
rebates , etc. , us Improperly influencing public
sentiment , and asked the witness whether
the same met his approval. Ho said that In
part it did.
Judge Nourso resumed the cross-examina
tion. Ho called on the witness to read a letter
from Secretary Cameron to various railroad
corporations asking the history of their enter
prise , nnd identified u paper printed in the
report of 1879 as the reply of the Chicago ,
Hock Island & Facitlc company to such
McKIniiey Hound Over.
MASON CITV , la. , August 7. [ Special Tele
gram to TUB BEE. ] The preliminary hear
ing of Mrs. Jessie MeKlnnoy for the shooting
on the night of July 21 of J. F. Sullivan , oc
curred to-day. The state introduced its evi
dence , and it was of such a character that
the defense offered no testimony whatever ,
and the defendant kept silent throughout.
The justice issued an order binding her over
to answer to the grand jury nt the next term
of the district court on the charge of assault
with Intent to kill. A warrant of commit
ment was issued until bail is furnished.
In justice to "Camp Reinegcr" bo it stated
that the affair did not occur there , but on the
cottage premises east. The substance ol
the state's testimony was that the
three men were taking a walk by
the house , going down to the lake shore
to bathe. When passing the house they
stepped off the walk to look in the window.
Tno occupants came out of tlio house in n
few minutes , and after u brief conversation
they went back to the door. The three
passed on up the wal k and then Mra. Me-
Kinney asked them to como "in. They
stepped back toward the houso. She went
into the back room nnd got the revolver ,
came to the door and asked them if thoj
were coming in. Sullivan said , "You invitei
us in. " She said , "Yes , I did. " The raised
her revolver and fired five times , the lasl
shot seriously wounding Sullivan. A shon
time before the shooting , in speaking of how
she was pestered by men prowling about
her cottage , it is alleged that she said : "Tho
idea of the ruffians following mo down to the
houso. If they had boon traveling men , i
would have been all right. "

WAMIINIITOV , August 7. [ Special to Tun
IEE. ] Indiana democrats in Washington
Bay there Is an estrangement between Prcsl-
Icnt Cleveland and Colonel Matson , the
Icmocratlc candidate for governor In the
loosler state. As chairman of the coiumlt-
co on Invalid pensions Colonel Matson has ,
during the pint thrua years , rendered inval
uable services to the president In the pen
sion veto business , and the suppression of
general pension legislation. They have both
worked together llko a well-trained yoke of
oxen , nnd the president thought so much of
\IutHon that he assisted him In securing the
jubernatorlnl nominal Ion , Shortly after ho
* Vas nominated , it will bo remembered , Col
onel Matson made u faux pas , so far as his
presidential vetoes and the administration's
attitude on general pension legislation is con-
coined , by reporting the bill to repeal the
limitation of the pension arrearages act. The
luesldent was bitterly opposed to this , nnd be
came very much put out with Colonel Matson -
son on account of his action.
Ho said that it put the democratic
party in a compromising position , because
there ) was danger of the republicans in the
house forcing a consideration of the bill , and
consideration meant adoption. The presi
dent further held that if the house should
pass tlio bill the republican senate would
adopt It in a twinkling , and tills would make
tariff reform altogether out of the question.
Colonel Matson knew ttils , and ho did not
intend that the bill should over bo consid
ered ; ho only wanted to gain popularity with
the soldier clement to assist him In his cam
paign , but all the same ho placed his party
in a hazardous position. The president gave
vent to his opinions on the subject In very
forceful language on n number of occasions ,
and Colonel Matson became sn ashamed of
himself that ho did not have the cheek to
visit the president with that frequency ho
was wont to a year or two ago.
From this thu two moil liavo been drifting
nnd drifting further apart , till now the pres
ident seldom sees the Indiana candidate for
governor , and the result Is the' latter has
little or no influence nt the white house , be
yond business of a "character Intended to
help the president's campaign in the state.
Last week the democratic tongue from In
diana was made to wag vigorously about
Washington , by the arrival of ox-State
Treasurer Fleming upon invitation of the
president. Immediately upon his arrival
Mr. Fleming went to the white house , where
ho spent several hours in consultation with
the president : then ho met Senator Gorman
and had a conference , and then met some of
the New \ork democrats. It was arranged
that Fleming should have charge of the finan
cial part of the campaign in Indiana. The
object In calling Mr. Fleming to Washington ,
however , was principally to get some correct
information as to how the Harrison campaign
was moving in I mil mm , and the prospects of
democratic success. Colonel MatKon , It is
stated , did not feel first-rate over the visit of
Mr. Fleming , because- demonstrated to
those who observed the situation that the
president called upon other people than the
candidate for governor when ho wanted in-
sulo information us to Indiana politics.

the effect thai General Miles' last dispatch
did not signify a premeditated outbreak of
any extent on the part of the Indians on the

'low ' on the subject with H. Duubar , issue
lerk at the agency , and J. A. Ncbzer , chief
> f police. Hoth gentlemen stated that out of
ully a thous ind inquiries they have made in
ho past month of Indians in reference to
pcnlng their reservation , not ono has been
n favor of it. Last week the Indians had a
ilg council composed of over sixty chiefs and
icad men In which nil the agencies were rep-
cscntcd , and they unanimously agreed mid
ilcdged themselves not only not to sign , but
o use all their influence in prevailing
upon the members of their respective
bauds not to do so. The main reason given
is that the government has not fulfilled the
treaties of ItOS and 1810 ; that they hud
coded immense tracts , including the Hlack
Hills , anil the government had not paid them
according to treaty stipulation , nnd in holding
on to their land they would soon get more
for it than what is now being offered them.
Since the death of young Spotted Tall last
month Swift Hear and Two Strike are the
rccogni/cd chiefs , each having u largo influ
ence and following , and they both emphatic
ally denounce any sale of the reservation.

ing himself the father of the child. While
all familiar with the circumstances were satis-

by the old man to form a loophold through
which ho'niight escape punishment for his
hideous crime , it appeared impossible to
secure sufllcicnt evidence to convict him , con
sequently an agreement was entered into
between the county attorney and the counsel
for the defense , whereby Ronso paid what
costs that had already accrued and the action
was dismissed. To-day Hrishaus was in town
trying to secure the arrest of Ronso , claiming
that he was scared into marrying the girl
through threats , etc. , and denies over having
had anything to do with her. and avers that
Ronso and his granddaughter continue to
