Representatives of the Omaha tribe of Indians are desirous of coming to Wash ington for the purpose of taking up with the Secretary ot the interior the division ot a portion of their trust fund, for the Im provement of their land.

They were given to understand that the senator would do everything In bla power to bring about such a division. Not content with this, however, they now make application to the senator to intercede for them with tbe commissioner of Indian affairs to secure hi permission to come to Washington and pre sent their case In person. In view of this request the senator has takea up the matter with the commissioner ot Indian affaire, but has been Informed tbat the commissioner, thoroughly under standing the situation and being In favor Of a certain portion of the funde being set aslds for their benefit, does not look with any great favor upon their presence here.

Congressman Robinson today Introduced a bill authorizing the secretary of the treas ury to pay to the Omaha tribe of Indians $100,000 out ot the money which said tribe of Indians may have to its credit in the treasury for Improvements on ths reserva tion In Nebraska. According to a letter which Commissioner Jones has written to Congressman Robinson concerning the amount of money which Is held In trust by tbe treasury for tbe bene fit of tbe Omaha tribe ot Indiana, there ap pears to be In round numbers $470,000 to the Omahaa' credit. Leading Indiana ot the Omaha tribe desire to have set apart $100, 000 ot this amount to their credit to be spent for Improvement of their lands and the purchase of stock. According to the last enumeration there are 1,203 Indians In eluded In the Omaha tribe. Commissioner Jones is In favor of this proposition, and has expressed himself em phatically in his letter. He says he be lieves tbe time has arrived when those In dians capable of managing their own af fairs should be permitted to do so, and as the Omaha Jndlans occupy their own farms and are keeping up their homes Ibey should be given all reasonable opportunity to work out their own future. Banters Want Better Land. Congressman Robinson has received a pe tition from a number of Ssntee Indians re questing Information as to whether these Indiana have a right to take homeateads the same aa other citizens of the United States. The Indians are anxloua to know whether this right has ever been allowed to any Indian trlbea In the past. Tbe pe tition states that allotment In severalty were mad to the Santee Indiana In 188S, at which time the Indians signing the pe tition were little boys, that their parents selectedallotments for them for their own convenlenee, for pastursge and timber pur poses, and not fit for farming, and that these allotments are almost useless. The question the Indiana wish decided is whether they can relinquish their title lo these allotted landa or retain their allot ments and still have the right of taking bomeBtsads. It la their desire to take home ateads on tbe Rosebud Indian reservation In South Dakota, when those lands are open for settlement. It was represented to the jdepartment that the Santee Indiana were cltizena of Nebraaka in everv aense of the word, but that under the treaty arrangement they could not alienate their landa for soma tims to come. Tbe Indians above referred to who desire to take new lands under ths homestead law ask tbe ruling of the Indian office upon their right to take lands In Gregory county when tbe Rosebud reserva tion is ooened to settlers. It Is believed the secretary of the Interior will rule that there la no legal objection to their exer cising the right of homestead entry. Peaalon Bill.

He consented to tell a reporter something about himself recently and in the course ot the Interview said: "When I entered the army, Id Company F, Fifteenth Illinois regiment, I was In per fect health, but the exposure and hard ships entailed In the service brought on a chronic diarrhoea. Thla caused great weakness, but in addition to that, In 18!5, I had necrosis of the lower Jaw, and tho suffering produced extreme nervousness. "After the necrosis had left me my nerves were still suffering from the shock. I had severe pains la my heart, so acute that I could not rest at night. I was also subject to fainting spells snd sometimes would remain unconscious for more than an hour. My strength and nerve power were at a low ebb, my blood like water, my complexion white and waxen looking, my ears colorless and almost . transparent, and whenever I undertook the least exer tion I became short ot breath. "My wife and her sister, had both been benefited by Dr. William' rink Pills for Pale People, and finally X . determined to try this medicine myself. I cannot ssy Just how long I had been taking these pills before I discovered I waa being helped, but It was not long. I soon found the pain in my heart bad left ma and I could aleep at night. I have had no more fainting spells and my color Is better. . Dr. William' Pink Pills for Pale People have done won ders for me and I take pleasure In recom mending them. They helped me when other remedies failed." The Rev. Mr. Huston Is now pastor of the Methodist Episcopal church at Elizabeth, Elbert county, Colorado.
