The final vote on the bill Itself will be preceeded by debate of several days' duration on the amendments to the bill. The reasons given for predicting an early vote' are that the debate la practically exhausted and that there Is strong pressure from the houso of representatives, whose members are anxious to bring the session to an end In order that they may have opportunity to give attention to their campaigns for re election. Indian Bill la Faased. The senate today passed the Indian ap propriation bill. - Several hours were de voted to spirited debate ,on the question of removing the reVjxlctions.trom the allotted lands of the Chock taws,' Cherokee, Chlc.- asaws and Semlnoles', except on full-bloods. After an amendment was offered and amended to suit those who favored it a point of order was made against the pro vision and sustained by the vice president. Mr. Bpooner woa the particular champion of the Indian In preventing the removal of the restrictions, but Messrs. Teller, Long and others who favored the amendment charged that he was misguided In his teal and the Indians themselves wanted to. be permitted to seek a market for their surplus lands. Mr. Bailey argued that the removal of the reetrictlons was In the Interests of the white settler and the future of Okla homa and Indian Territory depended upon getting farmers on these lands before the price became too high for the settlers to buy. The appeal had no effect on Mr. Bpooner,. who said the entire argument ap peared to be for the white man, with noth- ng for the Indian.

O., April 28.-Alleg1ng that the Standard Oil . company and seventeen affiliated companies have a secret trade agreement by which they control' the pro. ductton and sale of oil and gas Prosecutor L. W. Waehenheimer of Lucas county today filed suit In the circuit court asking revocation of their charters and dissolution of -the Illegal agreement. . In addition to the Standard, the following corporations are named . as defendants: The Lake Shore Michigan Southern, Toledo & Ohio Central, Hocking . Valley Railroad company. Standard Oil company of Ohio, Indiana, New York and New Jer sey; Buckeye Pipe Line company. Solar Refining company, ' Ohio Oil company Northwestern Ohio National. Gas company. Union Tank company of Pennsylvania, In diana Pipe Une company of Indiana, the National Transit company of New Jersey, Pennsylvania Oil company of Pennsylva nla and the South Penn Oil company of Pennsylvania. In the peUtion It Is alleged that the production of oil was reduced fur the pur. pose of increasing the price to the con sumers. It is set up that thla reduction amounts to 60 per cent, while the price of gas to the consuming public increased 100 per cent. Reference to - the alleged trade pact Is sensational enough that the charge, is made that the companies named as defendants have bound themselves not to sell or transport oil or gas below a cer tain standard rate. Queries are directed In the petition to the railroad companies' presidents asking them whether rebates are given directly or indirectly to the oil companies and whether the oil concerns have not been given pipe line rights on the railroads. It developed this afternoon that Prose. cutor Waehenheimer filed the suits against the Standard Oil and other companies on behalf of Attorney General Ellis. This is especially significant, together with the announcement from the prosecutor that the case will be prosecuted with all possl ble dispatch. The fact that the state Is behind tha Toledo prosecuting attorney In the action gives it strength which other wise it would nqt possesa. Judge Shaufelberger of tha law firm of Doyle' &. Lewis, which represents a ma joiity of the .companies named, as de fendants, this afternoon announced that tho case will be fought to the bitter end by. the corporations named as defendants. "We will be there to meet tha Issues when they come up," he emphatically declared. "You can Inform the public that the case will not go by default. Further than that I can say nothing in the absence of forma.1 notlca of the case." Rhenaaatlam Makes Lit Miserable.

SHERIDAN COUNTY IS LIVELY Portion of Wyoming, of' Which It Is Center, Is Slaking; Progress. Colonel C. G.

"Conditions with us are prosperous, and this to a greater or less extent means ever county In the state, and yet the northern an" central portions are Just now enjoying thi greatest prosperity," said he. "Sheridar. county is, so to speak, the storm cente. of new industrial conditions. A beet suga. syndicate la getting ready to put up u 11,000,000 plant and will also build an in terurban electric line south to the towr. of Big Horn and north to the Tongue rivei to bring in beets from the farms and In cidentally carry passengers. "Our country has in past years been short of water for late Irrigation on cer tain lands, but reservoirs have been built In the mountains, and when the plans nr' fully carried out every acre available will produce beets or other crops. "I was quite surprised to see that spring Is considerably more advanced in Sheridan county than In Nebraska. In the latter state I notice that Uttle has been accom plished in the way of plowing and seed ing, while with us wheat, oats and bane.- re nearly all in. Heretofore we have beei short of wheat, and consequetly this yea. a considerable additional acreage has beet put in. We have fine flouring mills wltl the latest up-to-date machinery, and Sheri dan flour ranks with the best that has eve. been shipped Into our market. "The city of Sheridan is a busy metropo lis at this time. Many new buildings art under construction, and the demand fo. eligible building lots and desirable hornet continues from month to month. "I wish you would tell your readers that Sheridan needs a creamery, and any ont, who will bring us one will receive a pay ing patronage. There is a demand fot creamery butter, both east and west of ul on the Burlington, and a largo business car. bo built up In a very short time. 'Conditions have changed In our count! within a very few years.
