has not perlitell the power to lie dormant ,
but haa freely and decisively exercised It.
I.AWS APIIICAnE TO TiE CASIL
He then enumerated many of the federal
laws bearing on the question of Interstate
traffic , Including those applying to the mal
service , those relating to the carrying of live
stock and those requiring the use of certain
kinds of brakes , etc.
"Dut In this connection anti for the present -
ant liuriose . " he continued , "It Is more Im-
Ilortant to note the provisions of several gen- I
eral statutes which cover the whole field of I
Interstate railroad transportation and show
S most conclusively ( lie purpose of congress to
exclude every other source and form of reu-
laton except Its own. Section (258 of the
revised statutes declares as follows :
"I very railroad company In the United
States whose road Is operated by steam , its
successors and assigns , Is hereby authorized -
Iell to carry upon and over its road , boats
bridges and ferries any property on their
way from any state to another state and to
receive compensation therefor and to con-
iiect with roads of ether states so as to
form continuous hues for the transportation I
of the same to lie place of destination . "
"Uavlng by this legislation made steam railroads -
roads Interstate commerce carriers for both
governmental and private purposes , congress
by the act of 1887 , known as the Interstate
commerce act. Inaugurated measures more
4 radical and cOlprhenslve than anything
ever before attempted by virtue of the power
to regulate commerce. "
Dy that act the principles In accordance
, vlh which interstate transportation shah bo
conducted are laid dOI"1 and defned , their
violation Is Inhibited under severe penalties ,
and , to crown the whole , all the interstate

fully discharged. Finally , recognizing the
existence of an evil of great magnitude , con-

1894 , interstate railroad transportation was
being Interfered with In the state of 11Mb
m and the city of Chicago. I was an Interfer-

STATE WAS DIRILECT.
The attorney general admitted that It was
the duty of the state authorities to deal with
certain phases of the offenses committed ,
mind sold : "If they had done so promply
qnd YlgorouslY , the Interruption of Interstate
railway transportation might possibly have
not ceased , but Instead of their doing this
they allowed day after day to pass , . marked
either by total Inactivity or effort so iii-
directed and Inadeq\ate ns to aggravate all
the evis of the situation . " S
Hence It became necessary for the government -
ernment to step In , not only In defeijas of
individuals , but In obedience to its obligations -
tions to protect interstate commerce , and because -
cause It I the duty of every government
to exercise Its functions whenever occasion
Mr. Obey then passed on to the consideratIon -
then of the means at the command of the
government for the suppression of the strlto ,
the princIple of which was the courts , which
2ust bs depended upon so for as practicable
to deal with It.
Mr , Oney ( lieu proceeded to consider the
asaerlon that the Chicago affair was ex-
ceptonal , anti to controvert the allegation
of errors In the court below , and In closing

WAShINGTON , March 2G.
A great deal of interest Is being mani-
fested by the general public In the forth-
coming proclamation of PresIdent Cleveland
opening for settlement the Yankton Indian
reservation In South Dakota This opening
will be the most Important one since that
of the Cherokee strip In Oklahoma territory ,
The Yankton reservation Is situated In time
southwestern part of South Dakota , on the
boundary line between that state and the
state of Nebraska.
The Yankton reservation was created by
tlo first article of the treaty of April 19 ,
1858 , by which the Yankton Sioux ceded to
time United States al the lamb then owned ,
possessed and claimed by item , excepting
400,00 acres described a follows : "At the
mouth of the Chotean river and extending -
Ing up the Missouri river thirty miles ,
thence duo north to a Point ; thence easterly
to another point on the Choteau river : thence
down tie river to the place of beginning , so
a' to Include the said quantity of 400,000
acres. " As actually surve'ed It contains
430,40t acres There bas been allowed and
patented to time Indians some 167.325 acres
under the act of February 8 , 1887. I Is
estimated that the lands allotted under time
act of February 28 , 1891 , will Include abut
95.000 acres leaving a surplus of some
168.000 acres These 168,000 acres of surplus
10 ni are those which are to be opened soon.
The report of the Yanllton commission states
that the price at which the land around the
reservation sold let lie Indians to believe
that they shouhl reeol'o at lest $6 per acre
for their surplus lands Everything seemed
to conspire to fix In the minds of the
Indians that their lands were very valuable
and that $6 per acre was Lhe smallest price
they should think ot. This made It very
dlmcull to convince them that their sur-
plus lands of 168.000 acres , scattered
through the reservation , mixed up with
the Indian lahds which will pay no
taxes until the Indians get their patents
from the government , were worth much less
than similar lands outside of the reservation ,
where the lands are cultivated by white
men , and that the price offered by the commIssion -
mIssion was liberal. Under these conditions
time prlco became a very serious question.
CONTAINS GOOD LAND.
Their reservation contains good lands , at
least the full average of South Dakota hands
If not better , but all things considered , what
the government paid them Is all they are
worth In their present conditon and a liberal
price for time Indians On December 31. 1892 ,
an agreement was negotiated between the
chiefs and held men of the Yankton tribe
and J. C. Adams if Webster , S. D. , John J.
Cole of St Louis Mo" , all I. W. French of
Nebraska , whereby the Indians ceded to the
government these 168,000 acres that they
mIght bo opened for settement Dy an
article of the agreement the United States
stipulated to pay the Indians for these lands
$600.000 , $100.000 of which was to be paid
six months after the ratification of the agreement -
mont by congress , and the remaining $500,000
was to be placed In the treasury as a trust
fund for the benefit of the Indians , upon
which the government agreed to pay Interest
at the rate of 6 per cent. Dy a provision In
time Indian appropriation bill approved August
16 , 18I .his agreement with the Indians was
accepted , . ratified and confirmed by congress
and the necessary sum of $600,000 was ap-
Ilropriated for time purpose of carrying out
time provisions of the act. An additional sum
of $10,000 was set aside to comply wih
article ' VII of the agremnent , which stpu :
late that to ech adult m mber"bf the tribe
past the age of 18' slould bl paid $20 In one
double eagle , struck In the year 182 , as a
memorial of the agreement.
There was also In the IndIan act for the
year 18- a provision that these 168,000
acres of lands ceded to the United States
should , upon proclamation by the president ,
be opened to settlement , and should be
subject to disposal only under the homestead
and townsite laws of the United States , ex-
ceptn the sixteenth and thirty-sixth sec-
then In each township , which should be reserved -
served for common school purposes and
should be subject to the laws of the state
of South Dakota I was provided that each
settler on the lands should , tn addition to the
fees provided by law , pay to the United
Stales , for the land so taken by him , the
sum of $3.7 per acre , of which sum ho
should pay (0 cents per acre at time ( line of
makIng his original entry , and the balance
before making his final proof and receiving
a certificate of final ontry. A provision was
also Included In the act to the erect that
every person who should sell or give away
any intoxicating liquors upon any of the ceded
lands should be punishable by Imprisonment
for ' not more than two year and by a
fine of not more than $300.
WILL nEIMDUISE THE GOVERNMENT.
The sum realized from the sale
of the lands to the setters at
the rata of $3.7 -er acre will reimburse the
government for tlo amount paid the Indians
In accordance with the provisions of the
agreement. One of the most enthusiastic of
the western congressmen over thIs subject
of time Yankton reservation was Congressman
PIckier of South Dakota Major Pickier has
made a thorough investigation of the mater
and I conversant wIth ' all the tact In tie
case. lie prepared a' valuable report for the i
house commiee on Indian affairs on a bill
which was to be offered as a substitute for :
the original measure , but this bill was not
passed as I was d&eme wiser to make pro-
vision for time opening In the Indian appro-
priaton act. , Major Pleller upon several oc-
caslons called at the Interior department
and the Indian office and urged upon the
secretary of the Interior and the commissioner -
sioner of Indian affairs the necessity of
having the proclamation Issued early tn the
spring , so as to enable the settlers to wake
time replantng before the advent of summer.
Much delay has been caused In the prepara-
ton of the regulations attending the procla-
maton , and time omclal Issuance has thus
been also delayed. There are always a num-
bar of plans and plats whIch have to be
drawn , und these ha\'o been the means of
delay , as several trivial errors have been
found by the officials of the lanll ofce In the
surveys which were made. As soon as time
regulations leave the general land office they
will be sent to time secretary of the Interior
for approval. They will be fIrst referred to
the assistant attorney general , who acts as
legal adviser for the Interior department
and upon the decision of that official wi
rest the ollinion of the secretary of the Inte-
rior. The utmost secrecy has been observed
by all the officials connected with the work ,
ss It Is the policy to give out , no advance information -
formation on the subject to the public , the
intention being to , , let no one know of the
exact date upon which the proclamation will
bo issued The object of this strict secrecy
Is to prevent a far as possible the "soonera"
and "boomers" from learning of the opening
and thereby taking advantage of the home-
A prediction can , howe\er , be safely made
as to what will be the nature of the prochl-
maton of the president , as It Is the rule to
adhere to a general form In preparing the
paper. I I expected that It will , after recitIng -
Ing the salient features of the agreement entered -
tored Into by the Indians and time agents of
the government on December 31 , 1892 , and
after Including a number ot "whereases , "
state that thirty days after date the Yankton

freckles and gave me the
beautiful rose leaf complexion
which you see and vhch has
been admired by the people of
every nation. Before I discovered -
covered La Freckla I was a
freckled face individual disgusted -
gusted vith my wn appear-
ance. Today I am the envy
of every woman who looks a
my skin. S

case of freckles in existence
and leave the skin as transparent -
parent as crystal. One or two
applications removes tan and
sunburn , It takes from three
to nine days to destroy every
trace of freckles. It is the only
remedy known to the world
