C.iblo Special to Tin : IiKii.1 There was

from a decision us evor. W. H. Smith put
n good face upon the matter in the iiouso

would complete Its labors to-day it may bo
that thU hope will bo icull/cd , but if it in It
can be only by the government practically
receding from the position which it has
taken. When any clIIToroncos of opinion
ixriso It Is always well to ascertain lib sooix
us possible what each party Is dilvlng at.
Now in this case what tha government has
been endeavoring to gut at still seeks
to leave the claims of thu younger
branches of the royal family open fur futuio
consideration. The children of the Prlnco

as might Imvo been anticipated , adverse to
nXv such proposition , nud hotico thu entire

not Indisposed to accept , but the liboials
wish to couplu with It an express condition
that any fuithor grant * for the queen's
Crundchlldnm shall not bo made. Tim ROV *
crumenl did net feel itulf ready to concede
thin requirement , and it endeavored to sub
stitute a series of resolutions which were for
separata allowances to thu prince's children
nnd a recognition of their future rights. H
must bo plainly stated that these tactics en
countered a severe defeat. The resolutions
were withdrawn , nnd Mr. Smith expressed
the hope that they would bo kept secret.
Anything moro Impolitic than to produce
them , and In printed form , it would bo diffi
cult to imagine. There is ground for hope ,
however , that this mlsUiko may bo rectllled ,
and that thu excellent sense of Smith will
yet guldo the committee- an Issue which

8 o'clock this morning the boll at the agency
cgan ringing to call the agency to council In
ho pavllllon , but It was nearly 11 o'clock bo-
'ore the Indians were all In their places to
: ulk. The head man of this tribe arose first
nd asked questions in regard to including
white men in tbo trcity of lt > 08 , to which
General Crook briefly replied. The name of
Rosebud was then taken up and commented
> n. These Indians have some way gotten the
idea that there nro many names ou the roll
it that aconoy for which there are no living
'cprcscntatlvus. The method of signing was
.lieu fully explained b.v Governor Fos
ter. This matter having been explained
plained so that there could bo no
moro complaint , the price of the land was
brought forward. The Indians stated thr.t
.his . bill was not In accordance with what
.hoy . had talked about with the Great Father
.vlien . in Washington last fall. To this Gov
ernor foster replied by reading the agree
ment as made by tno Indians in writing hist
'all and left with the secretary of the in-
.erlor , showing It to bo signed by the very
chlofs who are now in opposition. Tills
icomcd to bQ the principal objection , upon
ivhich they preached all the morning ,
Charger uud Crow Eiglo giving this as a
'eaturo about which they aio not at all
latlslleil. General Crook addressed the
Indians In about this language : "Thero nro
some half breeds who llvo ou your reserva
tion and giazo largo numbers of cattle on
your land , and they and their women are op
posed to tills bill and advisu you not to sign
tliis treaty. I lo.we It to you if these men
advise you for your Interest or their own
benefit ) You have been told many things
which are entiruly false , In regard to pay-
lug taxes and other things by them , and I
want to raalte it perfectly clear to you that
upon you rests a great responsibility in de
ciding this mattur , as you must look
out. not only for yourselves but for
your children in the future. You
should now prepare to leave something
for your families und something which no
ono can take away from you. Some time
before the Black Hills treaty was signed
miners went into that country , und I was
sent out to remove them. At first I had no
diflieulty m taking them out , but soon they
Crow so many that I could not keep them
out. As fast as I took them away from onu
place they came in at another. It will be
tlio sauio here , and the white innu will soon
bo hero in numbers to crowd you out. "
The situation In the Indian territory was
then detailed and the obvious lesson given
them was presented. An appeal was
made to all to act Independently
uud use their own judgment , nnd
not follow blindly the leadership
of their chiefs. Tno rolls were then dis
played and signatures Invited. No sooner
were tliu white sheets spread upon the table
than two ioung Indian bucks iu paint and
breech-clouts arose mid threatened to brain
anyone who should first touch tlio pen. An
Indian policeman promptly took charge of
thu young men and led them away. This
ODon attempt at intimidation aroused Gen
eral Crook , who gave the Indians a plain
statement of the situation , saying :
"I want it very distinctly uudutstood that
no nalntod , breech-clouted Indian will bo al
lowed to interfere in any way with the signIng -
Ing of tills treaty. If there mo not police
enough hero to protect ovcry signer
I will bnntr enough soldiers to do so , ami
b ar tins m mind , that if I do bring soldiers
hero 1 will make it waim for you "
When the threat was flrst made General
Crook took hold of the back of his chair with
the evident intention of braining the Indians ,
but ho contented himself with telling them
the plain , unvarnished tiuth of the matter ,
instead. It looked warm for a inument , but
tlie police were soon ranged in two lines and
those who signed passed out between them.
Chase tlie-Crow , n H.ul Hivor Indian , was
the fhst t ) sign , followed by High Eagle , of
nuothur band upon the Moreau river. At
this limo there are about ninety signatures
on the lolls , and a feiv moro are being aOdcd
all the time. Since the break has been
made It Is hoped to keep the good woik pro
gressing steadily until .onouarn names are
obtained ,
The attempt at violence hero is the lirst
nc tn ill threat of the kind yet
made in the entire canvass , uud
this comes from a band who was
brought here fiom Poplar uvor , Montana ,
a few years ago and denominated commonly
us "the hostlles. " Some doubt has been ex-
prusiud as to whether they are really a part
of the tribe intciestcd in tlio reservation , not
having signed the tic.ity of IblJS or of 187l > .

constitutional convention yesterday , upon
the call of committees , fully a dozen chair
men promised to report to-day , but the in-
.onso heat seems to Imvo inspired n imposi
tion to do nothing lo-day which can bo put
off until to-morrow , and as a result flvo re
ports only were received and la none of
them has any change been made In the arti
cles as they appear In the Sioux Falls consti
tution. Indeed It was settled nt the begin
ning without formal action that as the con
stitution of 1SST was practically ratified no
change except thosu spocillically enumer
ated In the omnibus bill , could bo made ,
but for fear that some possible clause maybe
bo Inserted hero , or phrase omitted there ,
some members are keeping most diligent
watch. The reports thus fur made , for in
stance , specify that the articles submitted
are In accordance with thu Sioux Falls con
stitution and omnibus bill , but this does
not satisfy Humphrey , of Fuulk , who
moved that the icports of standing commit
tees should clearly and plainly set foith
what uhangos , if any , huvu bcun made. ThU
shows thu uxtromo caution of members lost
anything Ijo done which CAII iniorfero with

BIBUAKCK , N. D. , July 18. [ Special Tele
gram to TIIK Buu.j This has been n dull day
n North Dakota's constitutional convention ,
but the committees have some interesting
times. The oomuiittoo on juuiclary decided
against the establishment , of county courts
as In favor of retaining tlio ofllue of justice
of iho peace. The committee also agreed to
recommend six judicial districts for North
Dakota , and the election of an appellate
court , which shall bo separata and distinct
from the district courts.
The prohibition question is earning ground
very slowly , in fact it looks as though it were
losing strength. It is said to bo oven doubt
ful if the convention will even submit the
question to n vote of the people without at Ilia
same time submitting the question of high
license , and that means an inglorious
for the prohlbitiomsls aud an overwhelming
victory for high license. This is the veidict
of the most conservative.

Iho commission. An article introduced
in the convention to-day prohibiting the
forming of trusts , and providing for the for
feiture of thu clmitur or franchise of any
company violating tlio constitution m this
respect : also prohibiting the keeping of a
