China has misled her opportunity. The
latest cabla advices from the F.owery King
dom assert that a treaty has been nego
tiated by Minister Conger which will give
the Lnlted States greater advantages than
ever before In the matter of Chinese tar
iffs. It was believed here that the Chinese
authorities would use the opportunity af
forded by the expiration of the pres.-nt
commercial treaty to force the United
Btates to make concessions In the matter
f exclusion laws. In fact, there are a
number of attorneys In Washington who
expected to arrange with the Chinese gov
ernment to represent the empire here and
to bring about a treaty which would Insure
a modification of the exclusion act. The
fact that a treaty has been practically
completed, which makes no reference to the
question of Immigration, would teem to In
dicate that the Chinese government Is by
no means anxious to Increase the facilities
for the depariure of Its working population
from Its shores.
As to tha Canal.
It Is doubtful If there are three happier
men in the United States today than Sen
ator Morgan of Aalbama, ex-Senator Miller
of New York and R?pre.iomative Utpburn
Of Iowa. No trio of statesmen worked as
Industriously or as faithfully for legislation
looking to the federal Indorsement of the
Nlcaraugua canal scheme as these three.
The fact that the Republic of Colombia h is
absolutely declined to take any step toward
arranging with the United States for the
construction of tha Panama canal gives t.he
greatest- satisfaction to Messrs. , Morgan,
Miller and Hepburn. Ex-Senator Miller liaj
sunk a great many thousands of dollars
In preliminary work along the Nlcaraugua
route and he is quoted as saying that ha
sees in the preient situation an oppotunlty
for himself and confreres to recoup in part,
at least, the losses which they have thus
far sustained. Messrs. Miller. Hepburn
and Morgan are confident that the preel
dent will use his prerogative and take steps
toward constructing a oanal along the Nic
aragua route. On the other hand there Is
excellent reason for believing that legisla
tion will be enacted to- nullify the act of
congress authorizing the president to tst-te
steps to build a canal. 4The western rail
roads particularly have recently placed or

WIENER, NebT. Oct. 4. (Special.) This
community is somewhat wrought up over
the report of Rev. Father Ruesing relative
I to the Wisner branch of the Tat tha. homj.
wncrein it is nem that the boys connected
with the home there were not properly feJ,
were overworked and were denied many
pleasures and that their education was
neglected, and that typhoid fever had pre
vailed among certain of the Inmates, etc.
This branch of the Tabltha home. It
should be borne in mind, ha been created
for the special benefit of orphan boys and
such others as come Under the care of the
home. The purpose of Its eatabllbhment
Is to give they boys a practical education
along agricultural lines, encourage habits
of Industry and give them a good business
education. This home Is located at Salem
and is on the extensive and magnificently
equipped ranch of J.EOJ acres, owned 'by
Henry Lelsy, pfe. Ident of the Clt'iens' Na
tional Bank of Winner, and the home is
under his direct observation.
The adverse report submitted by Rev.
Father Ruesing to Governor Mickey has
stimulated the friends and occupants of the
Salem home to submit to the governor a
number of affidavits denying the essential
features of Father Ruesing's report.
Henry Lelsy Speaks.
Mr. Henry Leisy, the owner of the ranch
upon which the Salem home Is located, af
firms that there has never been a case of
typhoid fever on the farm since It has been
in his possession, he having acquired it In
1S81, and rather than hieing conducive to
sickness the location Is a healthy one. That
It Is his aim to give the boys at Salem a
good practical business education and mike
of them good, Industrious, Chtlitlan citi
zens. That as to their home, school and
treatment, he Is doing nothing which he
desires to be kept from the public, but In
vites public Inspection and visits from his
neighbors and the pub'le In general at all
times. That when he made the lease with
Rev. lleiner he required him to iy the
boys who live and work upon the farm 20
per cent of his share of the profits. That
It was to his pecuniary Interest to have a
good home, good wholesome food, good
sleeping rooms well furnished, provided for
the boys at this home. That there was
nothing in the management or treatment of I
these orphan boys that he desires to have i
kept In the dark or from the public. He
further requests that public condemnation
be withheld until a thorough Investigation
be made by unprejudiced parties, In order
that Justice may be done to all parties con
cerned. He states further that It Is his In
tention to build and maintain here a good
agricultural school and a home which shall
be open at all times to the poor orphan
boy, as well as to the rich man's son, where
the habits of Industry can be learned and
where the boys can obtain a thorough
knowledge of agriculture and a good busi
statement of Instates.
George White of Lincoln, son of Rev.
White of that city, testified that he was an
Inmate of the Home of the Lelsy ranch for
two months.. He waa 16 years of age, and
his business was overseeing arrd herding
sheep, during week days and teaching a
class in tne Sunday school at Salem on
Sunday. He stated that he lilted living
there better than any place he ever
worked, he was given the opportunity to
learn agriculture In all Its branches and
was very much pleased with the treat
ment he had received at the hands of the
superintendent, Mr. Helner. They were
served with good, wholesome food, and
'had plenty to eat. The beds were good,
clean and warm. The boys were required
toget up at 5 o'clock In the summer and 6
o'clock In the fall and winter. He thought
the Home was a good place for boys and
he particularly, was delighted with It
Frank Ebel, aged 17 years, had been at
the home since the mldd)e of February. In
response to the query ss Jo whether Su
perintendent Helner paid him for services,
and which Father Rueelng In his report to
the governor says he did not, Young Ebel
replied: "There will be nothing due me un
der the lease with Mr. Lelsy until the crop
of 1903 Is fed to stock and the stock mar
keted." When asked If he was the boy
whom Father Ruesing reported to the gov
ernor as having the fever, he replied, "Yes.
But I wss not sick when Father Ruesing
saw me. but I had been In bed a few days
previous. While I was sick I was care
fully nursed and looked after by Mr. and
Mrs. Lelsy, Superintendent Helner and the
boys. I like It here very well. We get all
the time to go swimming we want."
George Salshury, sged 13 years, testified
that he attended the day school and Sun
day school at the Salem Home, and that
P. A. Brlch taught the day school end
George White the Sundsy school class of
which he wss a member.. He testified to
having plenty to eat, and had plenty of
time to play, about three hours each day;
that he had a good bed.
P. A. Birch testified that he was a

A. B. degree, and that he took a two
years' post graduate course under Prof.
Lyon, and a course In pedagogy under
Prof. Lukey. He teaches six hours during
the day and from one to .two hours at

along agricultural lines, but also In arith
metic. William Haefllger, an Inmate of the
home, testified that he was almost IS
years of age. He likes It there very well.
He la not required to attend school because
of his having attended the Lincoln high
school. Likes the work there, has plenty
of ( time to go swimming and works but
seven and a half or eight hours per day.
Is not compelled to work beyond his
Charley Long testified that he was 15

Ruesing Inspected the home. Ptd not re
port to him that he was required to get
up at 4 o'clock In the morning. He was

In doing the cooking by George Bolescllk

It will be labor lost If The Bee rhrhild

the condition of the Indians, as well as to
deter avarice and Breed from making
further spoil upon a weak and helpless peo
ple: but at this stage of a long drawn
fight for principle. It must be observed
evils dn or do not exist on these Indian
reservations, as that since the crime of
plundering and making spoil of a weak
people la abundantly proven, what meas
ure or punishment,, is to be meted out, or
what remedy Is to bo applied to prevent
the recurrence of these shocking evils? and
It Is to this point that of inaugurating i
better policy In the treatment of the In

To one who has given some thought upon
the question In hand. It sterna that the so-
called "Indian Question" to the govern
ment. Is In many respects what the "col
onial policy" was to the British empire
orntors on either side of the question rea
son well, but upon false premises and doc
trines; and it seems to be upon the same
plan that legislators pass laws for the
government of Indian affairs, till now we
have a so-called "policy," tho tendency of
which Is to wrest from the Indian, under
laws to which he has never consented, tho
lands secured to him by solemn treaties
with the government. To those Informed
It appears that the law under which it Is
supposed that Indians are given the boon
of selling their homes undsr the guise of
BO-ealled "heirship" lands. Is merely an
Instance of unconstitutional laws passed by
congress upon IndlRn affairs,, as such a
law Is nugatory In its attempt to divest
rights under former acts and treaties with
the Indian tribes; that this point on con
stitutional law la well taken Is abundantly
supported by the opinions of the highest
court in the land Is beyond controversy.
The "Indian policy" now In vogue must
be fundamentally wrong In principle, which
must require an eternal watch upon the
conduct of those officers sent to protect
the "wards of the nation" one which
necessitates a periodical exposition of un
consclonable practices even of "respect
able" citizens In their deals with the In
dlans. Under these conditions, like the
ghost of Banquo, the ' Indian Question

on rational Ideas be established for the
conduct of our Indian affairs. '
lt it be remembered that the kick on
The part of the Indian and his friend Is
not so much on the ground tbat the so
called "heirship" lands are not bringing
prices according to true value, but the
complaint goes to question the wisdom of
the "policy"- which must sooner or later
wrest from the Indian his ancient home
and patrimony secured to him by solemn
treaties with the government and drive him
naked If he survives the wreck, "a vaga
bond throughout the earth."
This policy 4f opening the door for the
plunder and the perpetration of frauds
upon the "wards of the nation" . as the
best means at hand of "civilising and
Christianising" our Indian tribes. Is with
out support of any - known principle of
man's relation to his fellow being under

which must address Itself to the profound
contemplation of an Intelligent people.
If treaties have been entered Into with a
weak nation, It will be to the honor and
glory of the more powerful that her officers
and citizens live up to them to the letter,
Instead of violating these obligations.
Treaties are but another form In which the
laws of a country are expressed; let these
laws be enforced and lived up to no matter
under what facts or conditions, In Indian
affairs as much as In any other depart
ment of government; In the faithful Inter
pretation an execution of the law no one
can be injured, except wrong-doers. Tho

Wild Bill blood and thunder kind of lit

INTEREST IN J EXT BOOKS
Qnestlon Likely to Be Injected lato
Campaign of Candidates for
fFrom a Staff Correspondent.)
LINCOLN. Oct. 4.-(Speclal.) In all
probability the question whether the re
gents of the state university should fur
nish text books to the students of that
Institution at cost, will be Injected Into the
campaign and the candidates for the re
gency will be given an opportunity to state
their positions on the question. The pa
rents of the students are deeply Interested
in the matter, and as It Is too late for the
present regents to do anything this term
It is more than likely the candidates will
be called upon to tell what they Intend to
do about It If elected.
C. 8. Allen of Lincoln, one of the
publican nominees said this morning:
have had no opportunity to look up the
law In the case, though I know the statutes
contain a provision that the regents of the
university should furnish text books at
cost. If no tpproprlatlon has been made
for them to do this, and they should at
tempt to use the temporary university
fund, then of course the matter would be
up to the auditor to say whether he would
Issue the warrants. If such a plan on the
part of the regents would be for the best
Interests of the students and It could be
legally done, then of course I would be
In favor of the regents furnishing the
books. However, I have given the matter
no thought whatever, and am not familiar
with the provisions of the law, and neither
have I Investigated to see the good points
of such a scheme."
Now that the report of Superintendent
Clarke of the Peru normal school shows
that tVlOO has been saved to the students
in this purchase of books during the first
term of the year, and that the school only
has an attendance of 43 students, those at
tending the state university and those
parents who pay the bills, are becoming
