On tho Choyenne rlviT reservation, a
portion of tho great Sioux reserve In Houth
Dakota, I ha Indian have Wen atitYcilug
!rom a. condition or land leasing that ha
attracted the attention of the Indian
Right association. 8. M. Rroslu. a apo
dal agent of the association. Iiaa made
an Investigation, and makes a report to
'he secretary, Matthew K. Biiiffen, aa
22,r.,Ch,'ynne river reservation contain
J.M7.40 acres which were aet apart for
their separate use by the terms of tlie
act ef congress of March 2, Js. It has
bee.i the avowed desire, of the govern
mrnt that the Indian should become self
supporting, and since the lands of the
theyenne river reset vatinn are primarily
adapted for grating purposes, tho agree
ment ratified hy congress above referred
to, provided for the purchase and Issue
l to the Indiana of 2i,000 atock cattle, which
were Issued to members of the tribe. Many
nf the Indiana profited by the advice of
the government and carefully preserved the
cows Issued to them, together with the
increase, so that they were upon a basis
of self-support. This was the condition
at the time of the advent of the present
agent, In 190ft. Previous agents over theso
Indians had been found to be unscrupulous,
oftentimes, and left their baneful effects
upon the tribe.
.Soon after the assumption of the duties
of agent tho present appointee seems to
have determined -4o lease the tribal lands
to outside rattlo men, by fair or foul
means, and tho accomplishment of such
purpose and the attendant evil of bis
administration haa caused demoralisation
to tho best interests of the Indians, espe
cially In the matter of oncoming self
supporting and Independent owncra of
cattle. The co-operation of officials of the
Chicago, Milwaukee & fit. Paul Railway
company was an Important factor, they
rendering personal assistance. The tracks
of the railroad company are favorably lo
cated for securing the shipment of stock
to snd from the reservation, of which
trsffio they (lave a practical monopoly.
I.eaalaa; of tho Cottle Troll.
The first effort of the combine to se
cure the lease of the tribal lands was In
100, when the Indians were called together
In general council and urged to lease what
Is known aa the "Cattle Trail," a section
of country on the northern side of the
reservation now six miles In width and
extending east and west a distance of about
eighty miles. The tribe in general council
flatly refused to lease. Not daunted, the
ugent called the six chiefs Into police
headquarters, created another chief upon
the spot to act aa councilman, so that
there might be n majority of so-called
cotiocllmen to agree on the lease, the full
number of counciltnen required being
twelve. These seven men without authority
to sieak for the tribe in any question
Involving the disposition of tribal lands,
were Importuned to agree to the lease,
promises of individual benefits being made
to them by tho railroad officials, etc.
"While these seven Indians claim they did
not all agree to the proposed lease In
form, the agent reported the ratified agree
ment of lease to the Indian bureau.
thai rcmicst of the agtllt. Who
cirri without authority from tho tribe, it
I ihut nrnnnMlfi were sent from
ih Indian office in Washington Inviting
via the Krlvlleae of Erasing the west
ern half of the reservation, which contains
in the mnrresate 1.426. 7(6 acres. A council
was called by the agent, the Interpreter
stating that the lands had already been
ina..H sn.i that the Indiana could not help
thuniaelvea. although no action had been
i.L.n hir the tribe in council. This repre
sentative council soon decided not to leaae
their lands, and realising me neeu tor eon
rutted action, annointed two of their mem
t..ra In nnnuvnt them in DrOtCSting tl
the government. White fculj and bellow
Owl were selected for thla task. They
(Irnva across country some ninety miles to
Ptsrre and secured aid In writing a letter
to tlie Indian department protesting against
tha agent's action and requesting that an
Investigation be made of the question.
Iao tab mrnt of Complainants.
Jt was several niontho before an Inspector
was detailed to Investigate the subject,
and. tf nnsslbla. seoura the legal consent
of the tribe to the lease, but in the mean
time the a rent who was Biinnosed to pro
tect these Indians was evidently planning
how best he could secure the accomplish
ment of his purposes, and he decided to
cuerce White Dull and Yellow Owl' by im
prisonment and other means.
White Bull's personal narration of what
he suffered savors of darkest Kusstau rule.
He slated:
"The agent refused to write our wishes
to the commissioner of Indian affaire, so
I wrote from Ilerre, where I had gone for
that purpose. When I came Irrmie and the
ugent heard of what I had dono be sent
the police tor me and I was arrested and
thrown In Jail without being told why I
was so treated. The chief of police came
and told me that the agent directed him
to cut my hair and he did so. I was kept
In Jail three months, compelled to work
at hard labor, digging ditches, cleaning
yards and grading roads, for which I never
received any pay. I represented the Indians
in a straightforward transaction, but the
agent used me as an example to cow the
rest of the tribe so they wJuld not object
any more to the leasing of the lauds. The
agent told nie after I was released from
prison that he put me in Juil for two
reasons; first, for leaving the reservation,
and. Second, lor kicking against what Com
missioner Jones decided to have done."
following the Imprisonment of White
Hull and Yellow Owl, an Investigation wo
made by an Inspector In July, l'3, and here
again the Indians are said to have been i
nver-reached. The members of tho tribe
residing In the western portion of the recr
vatton were more strenuously opposed to
leasing their section of the reservation
than those who were settled upon the east
ern portion, whose graalng grounds would
not be disturbed thereby. When a tlnie
Was se( tr voting upon the question nf
leasing the western half, the members of
the tribe were railed in and It Is alleged
that on account qf the hour for voting
having ben chanced from 1 Q'clock In the
afternoon pf the day to the forenoon pf the
same day, many of the members most In
terested In opposition to the lease had nut
yet reached the council, hence they did not
have the privilege of Voting. The vote
being taken showed 139 favorable to leas
ing, with 154 opposing it. Tho lease of
the "cattle trull lands being voted upon
the decision of the tribe was recorded by
fxrartlcally the same vote.
Leasing of the Eastern Half.
In March. 1!4, an effort was made by
the government to lease the eastern section
of the reservation, ciaitalning yjS.XHi acres.
The porilon of the tribe living In t lie west
eru section of the reservation were made to
fool that they had been opposed in leasing
the lands they occupied, so In retaliation
they were incited to vote for leasing the
eastern part by fostering prejudice among
them. Another scheme to insure success
on the part of the agent who was there to
see that the Indians had fair treatment
seems to have been Well planned and
worked out. The residents of the White
Morse district. In the eastern ortion, were
naturally opiaiaed to leasing their pasture
lands: so It announced the day before
the vote upon the question of leasing was
taken -lhat the White Horse members
would be given their rations at home, forty
mtles distant from the agency, where Iti-v
were gathered for the purpose of voting
imatnsi the lease. This order had the ef
feci "f induclnr many of these Indians to
go to their homes, ws they were in need of
I ho ration for dally food. The residents of
the western portion, however, who favored
baaing the vastcm lauds mere given ra
Hons at the agency. I heir vote In full ladng
retordrd In favor of leasing. The result of
liis vote was: In favor of leasinti. lot: op.,l to If-asina. lio: total vole polled, -it.
The secretary of the interior based all

The Indians claim that at the time of the

tiuvernmrnt In all regulations concerning
rations and allotments, and by the Indiana
themselves In their deliberations covering

appeals, therefore, that not an acre of the
I i.e,inr rlv.-r reservation lands has been
legally l"aed, nor has there ta-en accepted
by the Indians any proposition by a ma

As already shown, the Indians nccepleri
the proffer of the government In agree
ing 10 tux act or (onaress of lssn with Its
promise of fostering the cattle Industry,
and many niemla rs of the trUa were self
supporting through the revenue derived
from their herds. The illegal leasing and
the unjust restrictions now sufTi red by the
tribe have almot ruined this Industry. The
head of a family is permitted to have lcl
head of stock In tile leased pasture sur
rounding his home. For all excess stock
he Is compelled lo accede to anv sharp
lnrgaln the lessee may InBlst upon, the
alternative being to dispose of his surplus
stock the best way possible, and It usually
rtsilta In ruining the Indian herd. Thr
Indian agent has uniformly protected the
hses. and appeals to him tnmi the
Indians go unheeded. He haa posted writ
ten and printed notices over the reserva
tion, warning the Indians that they "are
prohibited from rounding up stock at anv
time" without his permission or that nf
the while lessee, on pain of arrest hy po
licemen and being brought perhaps l.V)
miles to the agency, and being "liable to
Kunishmcnt for the offense." This notlcfj
ai the desired effect. Indians, naturally
timid, feared to look after their cattle In
the pastures and they have been scattered
and lost, frequently being shipped to
market by the lessee without the Indian's
knowledge, and thr proceeds not accounted
for to li I nr. The Indian cows do not do
well, being run down by the lesser 'a steers,
resulting In a decreased nuniber of calves,
the latter being hugely lost known as
"mavericks" by reason of the Indians not
being permitted to look after Ihem, as
The Indian agent has discouraged many
persons from opening stores and prohibited
others, which has resulted in a practical
monopoly In trailing. During the time of
my visit to the agency potatoes were sold
by one store at the agency at 2 cents per
pound (perhaps $1 per bushel); Just across
the river, outside the reservation (tho
stores one mile apart), the price for the

I have shown the demoralization result
ing from the Illegal len-dnn of the land.
The Indians are suffering from additional
evils of administration, concomitant, how
ever, with it. The giving away of prop
erty In the rianoe, which waa not prac
ticed for eleven years previous to the
present agent's incumbency, haa been re
vived, the result being most disastrous
In breaking down Individual Incentive to
Independence. A low moral tone is prev
alent, the Indians, nnturallv. not respect- I
Ing the authority or those who themselves
una intoxicants and seemingly approve
such habits In others.
The friends of the Cheyenne river Indians
feel that they have retrograded by reason
of tho present administration of that
agency and lost the advancement gained
In ten or twelve years of former effort i
for the betterment of the conditions among
these Indians. The future welfare of the
trlle depends largely upon the nature of
reforms instituted a a result of tho pend

1-iesrlsh sentiment was due cnletly lo the
liberal movement of new wheat In tho

large deliveries at Minneapolis snd uuluth

Impossible that the present pi to a can be

light monev, which must remain until such
a tlnin when the export of this country's

When money touched 5 ier cent a short
while iigo. slocks took a sudden drop; and
sln e this time Secretary Shaw has paid a
number of vlslls lo Wnll street, which to
some degree have had a reassuring and
beneficial effect.
Bull reiMirts lhat the treasury would do
posit $V5.i..fl0 of surplus fund In New
York City banks. In order lo n lease the
strain, appear rather ludicrous In the Unlit
of existing cotidi'.lons. With the treasury
funds In a condition that csnnot lie re
garded excessively prosperous. I fall to
see how th government Can rnnto to the
re lease of th Wall street gamblers at such
a time as this. '
The old-time stamen of the market ap
pears to be falling. Important ptails seen)
Inclined to liquidate much more rapidly
than la-fore. Trmnorarllv the British po
litical situation is having some effect, while
the attitude ;.f Turkey toward tho poweis
also has hnd It Influence. Noticeable Im
provement 111 the copper tiade and steel In
dustries have added a mite to tlio bull op
timism. 8. H. Clin pin & Co. said of Thin '-day's
market: "The movement in the market
were very erratic, with a volume in trade
the In rg-ot in runny moiilh An early til v
bv the bear Intensts caused fonir lose
I rum the previous close, but Ihl attack
waa so spp'iitnl that hen the pressure

The annual statement Is expected tomor

excellent report is looked for. United
Staiea Steel common and preferred received
a preat d'l of attention, and wa very ac
tive the latter part of the session. While
the market closed reverlsh, Hie undertone
was KtHd. "I'd u stronger opening Friday
morning is looked for. United States fleel.
common and preferred; North American.
Amalgamated Copper nnd St. Paul will
probably sell high."
Demand lor Iron nil steel is Increasing.
It Is generally expected nf the business for
this month to sonatas both as regards pro
duction and consumption, the high record
for October. The estimated earnings of
the United States Steel corporation for this
quarter are expected to be the largest of
the year. It Is claimed that tho order mi
hand have never leen so large. The cop
prr trade Is equally large and prosperous.
with many S lallsts claiming that the
market will sliortlv advance as high as 1
cents, and that the dividend rate on Amal
gamated Copper will bo advanced next year.
The Republic Steel and Iron company de
clared a dividend of J' 1er cent for tho
quarter, and also a dividend of per
cent on the back dividend due on thl
Issue; ami Ibis is generally regarded aa
retlectins: go,al limes ahead.
The United States ltublsr pool grid Rub
ber Hoods shares Imd an unlucky day In
bringing out their specialties. Little- atten
tion was paid by the street and coninar
allvely few shares were bought cutside or
those thev bought themselves. The com
parative weakness of Rock Isluml has been
n thorn In the fide of an otherwise favor
able market. The fact that Rock Island
preferred declined I point to tho lowest ir
the year brought up a discussion with re
lstlpn to the future dividend payment.
The last dividend waa declared oh Novem

Mv opinion of the Market lias not rad
ically changed.. I etlll believe that a bull
market developing from present prices H
next to the lniMiHslhlr In materlallaation. I
lailleve that comparatively tight money will
pravutl until tho agricultural resources of
tliis country can be rxporled, and a large
balance of trade secured, after which lime
the treasury will be in position to lake
rare of the pecossltlas of Wall alreet.

The receipt o fa' sheep all during the

has been a fair demand for the more de

rattle tills week
tne season for range
over and there Is not
ame lor 111a purposes 01 ine packers yet.
And It Is mosi piobuhlo thai there will
not be much increase in the size of the
receipts until the season for fat Celtic,
opens, which will be about the holidays.
Thwre has not lieen much cor a fed stuck
on the market this week, and what was i;i
was not generally of a very choice grade,
tlie most of the cvnifed stuff being on the.
short fed and warmed up order. How
ever, the receipts all during the we.-K
have been only moderate in siae, while
there has been u.11 active demand on the
part of the packers for anything suitable
lor Ihelr purposes, with the result that
each day has seen a market steady to a
liill stronger than the previous day mar
ket. Hence at the close of the week's
trade the market on good choice cornrcdi
is generally 1 cVy 1m higher than at the close
uf last wock's trade, while the warmed
up tattle closed suady tu a little slioiiger.
The market on cows and heifers has
been running along about the same lines
as the bucf steers. There have been light
runs with ft rather interior grade ut stock.
There haa been a good demand for choice
stuff, with the result that the market 011
good choice cow a closed the week ltfaOu
higher, with common stuff steady tu 5c
h The' Irade on stocker and feeders all
during the week has been reasonably
active. There has been a good demand
fur till kiu.1 of cattle, with good choice
light weight cattle given Ihe prefeiencr.
Good light weight Blocker and feeders
closed the week 15C(ji5c higher, mostly,
while common and heavy weight did not
fare quit so well, lhat kind of slucg
cloning the week atajut Wo 15c higher.
HOGS There wa a moderate run of
hogs thl morning and most of Ihe stuff
waa In in fairly good aeaaon. Buyers were
out early and ware evidently wauling hogs
suitable for their purposes. The trading
opened fairly brisk and active and re
mained so all during tlie trading houia.
The market wgs favorable to the sellers all
during the day. The market 0a-ued steady
tu 2lc. higher than yeslerda's opening and
considerable business Hading was dune
wliile the iuarkev was tu Hint condition.
But later oil the, market lirined up still
more and closed the day with the average
in the nelghlMjrliood of higher than
the average of yesterday's market, lop
of today were In the same notches as yes
teiday. the loppy loads selling al 14 77'.
The bulk of the sales loday were around
14 7''ii4 7-H- while the bulk of the stock yes
terday was sold right around 14 To, show
ing an advance of about 2'- over yester
day. Thre wa 1101 very much attention
paid 'o quality or weights and there waa
considerable bunching of sales.
There ha ben a good, strong market
hare this week. The first four days of the
week saw a small decline in lh price on
hog from those at the ciose of last week.
But the market firmed up Friday and
Saturday and regained ail thai bad b. n
loot the first of tu week; and closed ihe
