TO SECRETARY OF INTERIOR
Hearing in Santee Annuity Cats Ended and
Teatimonj Goes to Washington.
NAMES FORGED TO CONTRACT PETITION
Sot Only Gross Irregalarlttes, hat
Bribery n.i Other Crimes Charged
lb Connection with Hlll
Th hearing at the Santea agency In
the matter of the contract secured In ISM",
by Charles Hill and Charles Eastman has
been completed and will be forwarded to
Washington for action by the secretary of
the Interior as soon ss the case can be
called up there.
The hearing recalls the New Ulm massa
cre, In which members of the Sioux tribe,
Including the Banters, were Involved. Pre
vious to the New rim massacre the tribe
received a certain annuity from the fed
eral government and this annunlty was
discontinued as part of the punishment for
the outrage by the tribe. For a number
of years the chiefs of the tribe have been
endeavoring to have the annuity restored
and payment made for the years for which
It has been suspended, the back payments
now amounting to about $2,000,000. They
have been unsuccessful In their efforts and
in 1W6 a contract was signed by a number
of persons representing the tribe by which
the Indians were to pay Charles Hill and
Charles Eastman 10 per cent of all money
received should they collect the back an
nuities. A number of the members of the
tribe protested against the contract, but
after receiving from the members of the
tribe a petition alleged to have been signed
by a majority of the tribe the secretary of
the interior approved the contract and It
is now In force.
Special Inspector Investigates.
Those who protested against the contract
endeavored to have the matter opened up,
but so far have been unable to do so. The
department at one time refused to recon
sider the matter, but upon the earnest rep
resentations of Senator Millard and others
sent James McLaughlin to the Santee
agency to Investigate the matter. The
Protestants against the contract alleged
and brought proof to show that at the
time the contract was entered Into It was
by a few members of the tribe after a
much larger . gathering had refused to
enter Into the contract. It was further al
leged that the contract showed that both
Hill and Eastman are attorneys at law.
when In fact Hill Is the former farmer at
the agency and Is now . a Minnesota
banker, while Eastman Is a doctor and
fullblood Santee Sioux. The Inspector held
that, knowing the men as well as they did,
the Indians were not misled Into signing
the contract by the assertion that they
were attorneys at law; but, on the . other
hand. It was" contended by the protestants
that the secretary of the Interior may have
been misled by this assertion and would
not have approved the contract had he not
supposed the allegations true. In regard to
the petition sent asking for the approval
of the contract, it Is asserted by the pro
testanta that a large number of the
tures a.e forgeries and that, though repre
sentlng that the petition had been signed
by heads of families only. It is signed not
only by them but by members of their
families over the age of 18 years, and that
a number of the bona fide signatures were
secured by misrepresenting the terms of the
contract, as the contract was not attached
to the petition signed nor was a copy
shown at the time the signatures were
. Question the Certificate.
It is further alleged that the certificate
of the agent. Clements, to the fact of the
meeting of the council which approved the
contract cannot be true for the reason that
Clements was at Flandreau, S. D., the day
the council was held, while the certificate
recites that he was present at the council.
As to a majority of the members of the
tribe being present at this council it is
shown that the council was held In a room
14x17 feet In site, which contained a safe
and other articles of furniture, so that it
would have been physically Impossible for
more than twenty men to have been In the
room, while there are more than 100 mem
bers of the tribe competent to take part
One of the principal protestants testified
before the Inspector that he had been
offered 14.000 not to make a fight upon the
contract and that others had also been
offered sums of money to sign the petition
for the approval of the contract. The
protestants In the case are being repre
sented by the firm of Greene, Breckenrldge
& Ktnsler of Omaha.

For the first time in years, almost. In
fact, since the memo.-y of man runneth
not to the ' contrary, Frank U. Moores,
mayor of the city of Omaha, walked down
Farnam street Saturday ungreeted In any
manner or form. There was not even one
little handshake waiting for him, though
he walked from the city hall clear down
to Twelfth street, not one "hello, Frank,"
or "How do you do, Mr. Mayor?" Not
even a "Howda, Mayor Moores," from tho

fevered brow and swearing softly that he
would never do It again when two of tho
city detectives passed him. After doing so
they stopped, held a hurried consultation
and separated, one standing guard while
the other hurried to headquarters for ad
vice and assistance. But rescue was at
hand, for former Governor Boyd appeared
at this moment. One look was sufficient
for him and gleefully exclaiming "I knew
you'd do It some day, and now there is
no question about my mustache being the
finest In Qmaha," he shook hands with and
identified the smooth ehaven gentleman In
white shirtwaist and duck trousers as the
only and original Frank E. Moores.
Later in the day Mayor Moores In self
defense took n husky police officer with
him on his walk around town. But he
forgot to have him, or anyone else, to
identify him when he went to church ye

walking him past his regular pew when

Apparently there has been no recurrence

one of camphor caffeine were made during

entirely abandoned, and those who have
been In almost constant attendance on him
for a week have today allowed themselves

room with the chapel was opened so that
his holiness might follow the service. He
insisted that Dr. Laponnl and his valet.
Centra, should leave his side and enter the
ha pel so as to better hear the mass. '
Yesterday's history was comparatively
uneventful. The pontiff had several hours'
repose, Dr. ' Laponnl resting near him
throughout the night. The physician twice
administered Injections, one of digitalis to
strengthen the heart and one of camphor
caffeine to overcome the patient's growing
depression. This morning found the poh-

going to his home where hla daughter

When the physician left the sick room
he was almost mobbed by high dignitaries.
Including several cardinals, who rejoiced at
seeing the physician tranquil enough to
leave the patient. Dr. Laponnl addressed
them all by saying: "Yes, the pope Is bet

evidence that the doctors themselves were
relieved of spprehenslon. Dr. Rossonl has

Dresses Himself taalded.
During the afternoon the pope felt strong
enough to get up. He rose, dressed him
self alone, In white, and went to sit In his
usual arm chair, where he remained for
some time. Then the windows were opened
for a change of air, the sun streaming In,
together with a light, refreshing breeze
from the Mediterranean.
Iate In the afternoon he received Car
dinals Mathleu, Btelnhaber, Agllardl and
Casali. The pope showed bis usual bright
ness and lucidity of mind and spoke to
each without showing any perceptible fa
tigue. To Cardinal Mathleu his holiness said:
I have not ceased for one moment to
pray God to protect France and have
the men now governing It stop the perse
cution of the church." Then he sent the
spostollc blessing to Cardinal Mathieu's
sister, who is a nun.
He heartily thanked Cardinal Stelnhaber
who told htm that the whole Jesuit order
was praying for his recovery, and asked
Cardinal Agllardl how he liked the vice
