The Fatn of Van Wyclc.
The Farmer's Priond reviews the remarkable -
markablo treatment of Senator Van
Wyck by the people ho so ably repre
sented and says :
The fate of Hon. C. H. Van Wyck ,
late a United States senator from No-
bruskn , is ono to point a moral if not to
adorn u tale. Two years ago ho stood
up for the rights of farmers in the
United States sonata as no ono ever
stood before or since. Now ho is rele
gated to private life. The head nnd
front of his olTonding was that ho made
the land-grabbers and the railroad grant
boodlors disgorge millions of land
splonded for cultivation. For this and
for this alone ho was retired , and
what makes the ] ! matter worse is that
the farmers did it and no ono olso. Ne
braska is overwhelmingly agricultural
in its population , and the farmers could
have kept this faithful public servant
in the place ho so ably tilled , had they
desired to do so. Now they grumble
because agriculture is depressed and
railroads have possession of bomo of
the moat fertile lands in the stato.
This is not an exceptional caso. Farm
ers quite frequently act in the sumo
way in other states and forsake these
who have always been true to them for
some now "mash. " Agriculturists
can't alTord to engage jn this kind of
play , and Should never join with those
who oppress them to down a true and
tried friend. When they do this they
should not growl and complain because
they are muflo to bear more than their
just share of the public burden.

OKLAHOMA. CITV , Ok. , April 11 [ Special to
Tun UF.C. ] The determination of the Oltla-
liODin boomers scorns to grow greater ns the
tlmo draws near for opening the coveted
lands to settlement , nntl the l/nltcd / States
troops are kept busy patrollng the country
and ejecting Impatient squatters who nro un
willing to watt for the opening day , April 22.
Men are rushing In hero with tliosnmo
avidity that they rush Into the booming min
ing camp , and everyone scorns afraid that
somebody else will got hold of a bettor
quarter-section than ho will bo able to get If
ho waits. They are kept moving on , however -
ever , and are not permitted Uvpltch their
tents and cump. llut the opposition only
seems to tncreaso their anxiety , ana sorlous
trouble is npprohondod hi consequence.
Thousands of homesteaders are camping
along the line In Kansas , ready to rusn
Into Oklahoma at daylight on the 22d , and
unless tlioro bo a largo force of United
States troops and deputy marshals at hand ,
the light for spoils may become a serious
matter. Many veteran boomers who have
been hungering for Oklahoma for the past
llvo years , and braved the hardships
of Captain Pay no's campaign , feel
that they uro entitled to first choice
of lands , and many assort that they will have
the land formerly located , at all hazards.
They have selected and watched their claims
for years , and now , fearlnjr that the newcomers
comers may got the best of them , they have
become desperate. They hold their meet
ings in the various camps and scorn to have
decided on a plan of action , but Just what
course they Intend to pursue is not known
outsldo of their gang. It has boon rumored
lioro that these men have bunded together
and intend burning the bridges and trestles
011 the Santa Vo railroad on the night before
the opening day , In order to obstruct the in
flux of homesteaders until they can nmko
perfect their claim to the land they desire.
A notice to this effect was sent by un
known parties to the Santa Fo agent , and a
forca of detectives' . said to have boon
broucSt hereby | the railroad , and to hold
thonibulves in < Dullness to prevent damage
to the company's properly , and every possi
ble precaution is ueuiK taken. But tho.boom
ers sny they do not iw jose to jeopardize
their chancei by allowing a flood of tender
foots to drip in on the land they have
selected. Tiio.vlook upon these lands as
th ir rights which they sty they will forcibly
Tliero are already about twlco as many
people on the borders us can be accommo
dated with homesteads in Oklahoma , and
more are arriving every day. They nro
living in tents , dug-outs , wagons and every
kind of shelter , and some are camping out in
the open air. Many of thcso people repre
sent colonies from Nebraska , Colorado , Kan
sas , Missouri , and various other states.
These color.lcs are said to number from
twenty to 500 persons ouch , ana it looks Ilka
all the world wants to settle In Oklahoma.
The Santa ITo road is preparing for the open
ing day rush and every available car on its
entire system is to bo put in readiness to use
on the i2nd. ! Many who can afford it are
engaging private cars for their colonies and
are putting up a handsome bonus for the pur
pose of binding the contract.
One of the veteran Oklahoma boomers ,
who has been dodging the soldiers for sev
eral days , speaking of Captain Pay no's crtorts
to open tUis territory several years ufeo , said :
"Captain Payne , had ho lived , would douht-
lebs liavo carried his point by his determined
persistence and bold daring. He was a man
of wondrous will and bravo as u lion. A
giant in stature with little education and no
personal neatness ; ho wes na'gentle' * ,
woman , and was'greatly ' .belovdd. by , all his
followers , over whom ho reigned with im
perial sway. Ills word was law , and uono
over questioned Ills right to rule. . ,
"After having been arrested twlco by
United States marshals , Payne and his fol
lowers again entered this forbidden spot and
built a village there. A company of the
Ninth United States cavalry was ordered to
remove them and destroy their village. Tha
torch was applied and the vUlago Of , Okla
homa was soon In ashes , " and'tho leaders
were taken to Fort Smith to bo triea in the
United States court tliero. 13ut after con
siderable correspondoncp between thq'dlrtor-
ctit departments , the president found that ho
had nn elephant on Ins hands , for thcso men
were guilty of nothing but trespass , and were
soon released. Payne then brought suit for
unlawful arrest against Lieutenant Jackson ,
the onicer in command ot the troop of United
States cavalry that arrested him , but the ease
wassubsequontlydisrnlsscd.and the bold plans
of opening Oklahoma by force were aban
doned. "
Another part of the Indian Territory is
sought to bo opened by anxious home-seek
ers , for it is certain that the Oklahoma lands
included in the president's proclamation are
not enough to go round. This is what is
commonly known ns the "Cherokee outlet , "
or "Cherokee strip. " It is in the northern
part of the territory and is considerably
larger than Oklahoma proper.
The tltlo to tuo "Cherokcq outlet'em ,
bracing over six million acres , is poculiarund
anomolous. When the government ceded
the Oklahoma lands to the Cherokee nation ,
the strip known ns the "outlet" was also em
braced in the deed , but us a mer6 gratuity
without consideration , not for occupancy ,
but for the purpose of affording the Indians
an outlet to the hunting grounds of the llocky
mountains. The outlet was supposed to bo
necessary in order to give a larger area for
hunting purposes ; but , not being necessary
now , the Oklahoma agitators claim that it
equitably reverts to the government. This
strip has been u profitable source of revenue
for the Cherokee nation for a number of
years , and is leased to a cattle syndicate for
grazing purposes for $350,000 a year. Tills
lease lias been made a source for complaint
by parties who seek to open this territory ,
and Attorney-General Garland , In an oQlcIal
opinion , sustained their views. Ho hold
that , us the Chcrokecs used this "outlet" for
purposes other than these for which it was
donated , they forfeited all right and title to
their lands , which , therefore , reverted to the
Renewed efforts are now being made to
open the ChcroUoa outlet to settlement , and
President Harrison has appointed a commis
sion to treat with the Cherokecs and Induce
thorn to relinquish all claims to this terri
tory. This movement is being vigorously
opposed by the cattlemen who lease thuso
lands from the Cliorolteos for grazing pur
poses , and they are bringing every Inllueneo
to bear against opening them. The demands
of homesteaders are so great , however , that
all other pressure will have to give way and
many people now camping on the Kansas
line realize that they will bo unable to get a
houiastead until the Cherokee lands uro
thrown open to settlement.
Many of the best citizens of the Indian
Territory favor the Bootionizlng of the entire
territory , dividing the lands in severally and
seeking admission to the union us any other
One- thing is certain , the organization of
the torrltoryrofj Oklahoma would tend very
materially to decrease the amount of crlmo
committed in the various Indian nations. In
ita present shape , the Indian Territory offers
a refuge to criminals from all overt lip world ,
for once within its borders they are safe
from arrest , no mutter what their crimes
may bo. There are no extradition laws to
facilitate tbo capture and punishment of
criminals who roam the forests of the Indian
Territory. Here they nro as eafa safer in
fact than if they wore in the wilds of Aus
tralia or Central Africa. True , they can bo
punished for crimes committed within Uio
borders of the territory , but for no others ,
and us ovldcnco of this fact it is but neces
sary to ulanco at the criminal dockets of the
several United States courts havinu jurisdic
tion over parts of the Indian Territory. At
Fort Smith alone , where , until recently , the
United States had jurisdiction over the flve
civilized tribes , in. all cases except where
only Indians are conccrnnd , the criminal
business is astounding. Tbo court ls almost
In continuous session , and bos before it from
two hundred to three hundred criminals
every year , ' for all classes of offense from
murder down to violation of the revenue and
intercourse laws. There have been nearly
hundred Indian Territory murderers hanged
from oao scaffold there.within the past
twelve years , to say nothing of the
many murdorow whoso sentences were com
muted lo llfo ifflprtsonmbnt.

The rest are the bones of camels ,

Egypt , 'lo ' explained , has become u
great source of supply for bones. The
cargo of the Wlngatos was bought of a
Gorman dealer In Alexandria , who has
made a fortune by his business. Ho

and there the natives glean a harvest
without any other olTort than picking
It up. The great quantity of bones newfound
found is the accumulations of thousands
of yoars. These who died were thickly
buried in a foot or two of sand , and thus
every strong wind , that blows reveals
now "mines of ghastly treasure.
The bulk of the cargo is , of cour o ,
made up of bones of boasts of burden ,
but parts of the human frame are to bo

of the same feast , but in "Lady Car"
Doth these literary epicures can enjoy
an umplo suHlcloncy. The story relates
how Lady Car , daughter of Lord and
Lady Lindens , was married to a rich
Scotch landowner , the son of a navvy ,
against her own wishes , but at the in
stigation of her parents , who had very
little appreciation' the world in gen
eral , and , in fact , considered that what
ever enjoyment tliero was attainable
could only bo derived from the power
of inonoy. Lady Car at this time was
deeply attached to Mr. Beaufort , n gen
tleman In every sense of tlio word , but
unfortunately enjoying only a small in
come. This attachment alouo would
have created a feeling of repugnance
toward Mr. Thomas Torrance , the scion
of iiuvvyclom. but''Lady Car's misery
was increased bv iho absolute cruelty
and utter brutujjty displayed by this
man after their initvrlfigo. Fortunately ,
Torrance dies , mid loaves Lady Car
most of his wealthy together with two
very disagreeablechildren. . Shortly
after his death * she marries Beaufort
but his 6xporiorLC ( } of poverty has not
nurtured any inconvenient senti
ment urging , ' h\\n \ \ to refuse the
woman he loves , because nho lias become -
como wealthy. Immediately after mar-
rlago thev leave England and travel for
several years , Lady0Car being desirous
of shutting out hitrTpast lifo , if possible ,
except that parlhc.onnected with her
real lover , her present husband. On
returning to England they aottlo down ,
buying a pretty pl Cb in Surrey. Lady
Car was an enthusiastic idealist revel
ling in fantastic aspirations , and had
admired Beaufort in the curly days
cniofly because be talked with her of
his loty ambitions , his desire to Ira-
prove the world. The rcmainder'of the
book tolls haw ulio strovn to forgot her
llfo with Terrence and her mental Buf
fering at the discovery of Beaufort's
loss of ambition. Everything combines
to oppose her efforts to banish the past
the children Inherit the brutal in
stincts and features of their father , nnd
Beaufort's cool and rational gentility
unwittingly but gradually crush her
spirit , till finally her son's miserable
behavior and connection with a girl
very much lower In the social scnlo ,
proves her deathblow.
Lady Car's delicate nature Is drawn
witliconBuminato skill ; the character at
nrst appears allttlo morbid nnd weak
but becomes more intorosUntr when she
removes the mantle of Idealism with
which flho had robed Beaufort for so
long : a fooling of pity acquired by her
carlior fantastic emotions gives plnco tea
a sincere sympathy at the disappoint
ment of hU her hopes. Beaufort is a
.J-horouchly symmetrical study and on-
tlroly frco from all incongruities , Tlio
llnalo of the , story Is very pathetic , and
beautifully told , with all the refined ex
pressions for which Mrs. Oliphant is so
