Tun BEE. ] After councillng among them
selves for the past thrco days the Indians had
n general council In the afternoon , to which
they Invited the commission. American
Horse , No Flesh , High Wolf , and Swords ,
captain of police , were the principal speak
ers. American Horse opened the council by
n number of questions to the commission , In
which ho said : "My friends , I don't under
stand tome things in this bill. I wish you to
toll us In plain words about them , so wo can
understand how long will the 53,000,000 , de
posited to our credit bear interest before the
principal Is to bo distributed 1"
"It Is to remain fifty ycnrs , nnd the
bill provides that In addition to the 10
per cent the Great Father may spend 10 per
cent of the principal to purchase goods for
the Indians after a tlmo. This Is to bo spent
In buying teams , implements nnd things to
allow you to po on farming. "
"Will every ono have equal rights , or will
there bo any spccllled amount for each to ro-
cclvu ? "
"Tho onllro amount will bo divided by the
whole pcoplo in lifty years. "
"Aftor all our lands are surveyed and
each Indian has taken his land in severally ,
will the balnnco belong to us in common or
will other Indians own the surplus ! "
"Tho surplus will bo owned by all Indians
on the reservation in common as it is now
owned-by you hore. " r
"I ask the question for the reason that
there are two classes of Santccs , and they
may bo brousht in hero aud given our laud.
Wo owe them .nothing and they Imvo no
right here. They have sold their land and
have no right lo ours. Will they bo cu-
tltlqd to pay ! "
"Tho Santcos have no right to your land ,
but they Imvo a share in the permanent fund.
They must take their allotment in Nebraska
in their present reservation. "
American Horse then repeated tlmt the
Santccs had no rights here , but us they had
traded their land and become.poor the Great
Father Imd taken pity on them. Ho then
ttskcd the commission to strongly recom
mend that their educated children und
half breeds be given the places on Iho
agency which dmw a oaiary , and that anyone
ono incorporated in tlio tribe bo allowed to
trade nnd not let the rich men como here mid
rob us. "Tho traders and others furnish
everything und wo have no market , so wo
sometimes grow discouraged. When wo
take our land in severally wo can raise
everything to supply the agency. Will the
government give us n market to sell our
goods ! "
He was Informed that the bill pledged In
the nllnlluicut law to assist in finding n
market for their crops , and there was no
reason why the grain and beef should not bo
raised hero and sold to the government.
Several complaints were then made about
purchiislng hay from white men instead of
Indians , and the Inferior beef received. The
annuities and the bad condition of the clothes
Bent them were so put together that it made
it almost Impossible to wear them. "Tlio
farmers sent hero ( lo not know their duties ,
und it seems as if some of them had never
seen a plow , and if wo complain
they ill-trr.-at us. Wo want them
taken away and the places given to our prac
tical halfbrccd farmer , who can teach us
how to farm right. I believe the bill is
right and will start us on thereat
roatto prosperity , but there are
other chiefs above me , and I want
them to sign the llrst , BO I will not belittle
them by signing before thonr. "
The commission promised to recommend
the changes asked fer. The speeches of
High Wolf mid Sword were made in Indian L
and were able nnd logical from an Indian
standpoint. Afraid of Bear addressed the
commission nt length , saying there was
ono road to prosperity and another to
misery. Ho favored the bill ,
which was thu prosperous road ,
but was afraid it might turn into the road to
misery if the promises now made were like
these of the past , particularly of 1S70.
General Crook It was no bill by congress ,
but simply an agreement , In which could be
Incorporated things tlio signers could not
understand , But now wo como with
bill that all you pcoplo can read. I liven
been with the Indians all my life , and no one
knows better than I the wrongs they ha c
. had to suffer , and 1 do not blame you for youi
distrust in the past. But this bill you can all
* ' read and fully understand.
After the council adjourned a Inrcro.num
ber went to the ngent's office and signed the
bill , It now having over llvo hundred signa
ture ! , , and they are being slowly , butstcadilj
The kaleidoscopic chuiigo in the Indian nature
turo was fully illustrated to-day. Two dim
tifeO Young-Muu-Afraid-of-HIs-Horsfs was
m full sympathy with the bill. To-day h (
states emphatically that ho will nol
sign. Another change may comi
If as soon. A big Omaha dance will occur thi !
i evening , as the commission is still Issunif
l.i extra rations , which , If not done , it would bi
impossible to retain them at the agency.

sorrow nnd regret by the older employes of

by foad recollections of her kindness to

house. Ono of the older door-keepers in
speaking of her suid :
"Mrs. Hayes was a good , kind woman
If ever there was one. Everyone
about the whlto house liked 'and
loved her. She seemed to take
notice of all these around her nnd she would
often stop us to muko Inquiries about how
wo were getting along. I will always re
member Mra. Hayes' last reception. I never
saw such crowds. Women pressed In and
would hardly move when they passed
through the Hues , pleading for only ono more
look. Wo had to close the doors when there
were lots of people outside , and many went
homo disappointed because they could not
see her. "
WANAMAUBa EXPLAINS" ;
Why There Are So Many Postofflco
NEW Yor.K , June 25. . The Mail and Ex
press to-night prints an interview witn Post
master General Wannamaker. The follow
ing is a report of it :
"Why are removals made so rapidly ! "
"Thoy are not made rapidly. The daily
changes going on in n city of 29,000 inlmb-
itanls are many , and if our postmasters
were all put together in n city they would
make a city of that size. There would bo
deaths and resignations , necessary removals
and expirations of terms that would natur-
allv roqulro many now appointments every
"But there is great deal of criticism be
cause of the removals. "
"Yes , it always lias been so , and always
will bo so , until it becomes the custom of the
government to publish the actual reasons for
Ihoso changes. In many Instances they are
upon inspectors' reports , which , if published ,
would destroy the future man and leave u
shadow upon his family. There has" often
been much criticism , simply because politics
wore thought to bo involved , when the solo
cause of removal had been drunkenness ,
neglect of duty and clearly proved unlltness
10 hold the important office of postmaster. To
allow n postmasler to servo out hls term who
does not appear at his office more than
once in several weeks , or who sits nt his bus
iness several squares away and manages the
iioslonlco wilh women and boys , has no merit
in It to win the approval of any community.
It would scum to bo for the good of the coun
try if these people would resign itstcad of
waiting to have complaints lodged against
them , und them bo removed by ihe depart
ment. The people who draw pay from the
government ought to bo compelled to give
faithful service , or resign , and if they do
noitchr , the department will recommend their
removal no mailer how much criticism and
misapprehensions of fact may bo made. "

There was n very important conference nt
, ho whlto housoto-day. The conferees were
. 'resident Harrison , Secretary Lilalno nnd
Commissioner Phclps. The hitter bore with
ilm a little yellow leather bag , of which ho
was very careful. Ho has had that little ro-
ccptaclo constantly nt his Rldo during the
Mist ten days , and has not permitted any one
.o touch or to assist him in caring for It. Its
contents was a copy of the agreement signed
jy the commissioners of the United States ,
jcrmany and England at the conference re
cently closed In Berlin. Ho came directly
to Washington after landing iu Now York
yesterday , and brought the treaty to the
( resident with ns little delay as possible.
Die conference lasted some time , nnd the
[ irovislons of the treaty were afterwards
considered in cabinet meeting , but no ono
who was present at the conference is dls-
> osed to give any Information upon the
subject. Commissioner Pholtis was never
noted for his desire to enlighten the general
imbllu through the medium of the press , and
ins European trip has not changed him In
the least in this respect. Ho was as aaitablo
and suave as over , but positively declined to
give the least information or to express the
faintest opinion upon the subject of the busi
ness which took him nnd his conferees to
Europe. The only thing ho would say In
reference to the matler was that In his opin
ion the treaty is satisfactory to all parties.
Ho was impressed with the courtesy of the
conference in conducting the negotiations In
English , and said it was the lirst time the
French langgago had been ignored in a diplo
matic conference. Very general satisfac
tion is expressed on all sides with the result
of the Samoun conference , nnd no doubt is
entertained anywhere that the treaty will bo

MAHVELOUS KNTEItl'llISI ! .
The Pennsylvania 'railroad has'for many
years been in the habit of giving nn excur
sion to the correspondents and local newspa
per men of Washington , and last Friday
they were laken to Cresson Springs , at the
summit of the Alleghcnies , near Altoonn , and
to Johnstown , which is a few miles beyond
the Mountain house at Crcssouwhich stands
in ono of the most beautiful spots in the
whole world. It was given up entirely to
the correspondents uhd their families from
Friday until Monday , for ii was not open to
the public unlil Iho following day. Every
creature comfort was provided for in a most
lavish manner , und if the reporters had been
princes they could " not have been entertained
in more truly "royal stylo. Although the
object of the trip was merely to give the
boys a few days of rest and recreation in the
mountains , the most interesting part of the
trie was a visit to the appalling ruins at
Johnstown , which was made on Saturday
under the guidance of Mr. George W. Hoyd ,
the assistant passenger agent of the Penn
sylvania company , and other officers of Iho
road. The train was run so as to give the
best possible view of the scene of desolation ,
and although Tin : 13m : has published column
after column of the most graphic and truth
ful description , no pen could frame a com
plete picture of the disaster , nnd Iho human
mind can not possibly realize Ibo oxlent of
tlio devastalion when described by another.
The eye nt once can comprehend the situa
tion there , for the Imagination ot a Jules
Verne or a Hidcr Haggard would find it im
possible to invent anything approaching it ,
and the energy of the Pennsylvania railroad
company in repairing the damage is about
as marvelous as the disaster itself ,
for within forty-eight hours after
the dam bad broken aad the
Hood had swept away 520,000,000 worth
of property , the company baa 10,000 men nt
work repairing the damage. All the skilled
workmen nnd carpenters upon the Pennsyl
vania system were at once carried on special
trains to the sccnn , and engineers nnd work
men from other lines were employed and
sent forward as rapidly ns possible. All the
bridge timber in eastern Pennsylvania was
purchased by telegraph and shipped nt once
to the nearest available point , and within
nine days after the Hood broke trains were
running regularly. There never was such
rapid and extensive bridge building in the
world. Hridges live and seven hundred feet
long were constructed in a few days , gangs
of working men being engaged constantly
through the twenty-four hours. The mar
velous energy and wonderful skill shown in
this rcstoraiion has no parallel In history.

An Interesting Case Decided.
WAYNB , Neb. , Juno 25. ISpocial to THE
Br.c.J The case of Wayne county vs John
T. Bressler nnd D. C. Patterson , was do-
elded to-day In. favor of the defendants by
Judge Powers , of the district court , who sus
tained the aomurror to the petition. The
case has attracted u great dc.il ot attention
throughout the state , both on account of the
largo sum involved , and the fact that It
would settle the question of the liability of a
county treasurer for Iho profits or interest ho
may 'receive from the profit or in vestment of
public funds. Brassier was formerly treas
urer of Wayne county , and Patterson was
bis partner in business , and a portion of the
time assisted him In the oQlcc. Last fall a
resolution was introduced to the county com
missioners , nnd by them passed , empowering
certain attorneys of Wayne und Omaha to
tnko such action ns they saw flt to recover
property or money hold in trust for \Vayno
county. By the terms of the resolution the
county was bound to pay prelimin
ary expenses and was to tret one-half of what
was recovered. Under this authority suit
was begun In the district court against
Bressler and Patterson for the recovery of
$ -55,000 , which , It w.is alleged , they had
made out of the Investment of county money
during Brcsslor's ' term of ofllcif. In render
ing Ills decision , which had been carefully
written out nt length , Judge Powers ro-
vlowed the nuthorilics presonlou on bolh
sides , for though tlio question nt issue was u
new ono in the litigation of this state u few
cases Involving the anmo principles were lo *
bo found. The decision was , in effect , that
n county treasurer is simply a debtor to the
county for the money that comes Into lis
hands oflloially , and that ho is liable abso
lutely for It on his oftlcial bond ; that the
character of agcul.or the Irustee.on which the
ory the case was brought , does not attach to
the county treasurer , and that the county
can not suonorrecoverforauyprolltsho may
have made by the iu vestment of the funds.
So far as the county is concerned the de
cision ends the ease , as the county attorney
has advised the commissioners that there is
no foundation for the suit In law or equity ,
and it will bo ordered dismissed.
