WASHINGTON, Oct. 28. (Special Tele
gram.) Official information from Omaha
was received today from Mnjor General A.
TV. Grecly. commanding tho northtrn divi
sion, elating that the Uto Indians now off
their reservation arid surrounded by troops
are In a mood to listen to argument. Gen
ral Greely lias asked the socretnry of war
to request the secretary of the Interior to
order an Inspector to accompany Woman's
Terres from Pine IUle und American
Horse of the Cheyenne river reservation to
Gillette, Wyo accompanied by the. very
best Interpreter who can be had, In order
that there may be a full and free confer
ence between tho Indians and soldiers
pending their return to the Unltah reserva
tion. These two Indians are looked upon
as the i-leverest of their people and Chief
Appnh desires to have them present at the
council with the. white men. Yesterday
General Greely, wiring to the military
secretary from Omaha relative to the Wyo
ming situation and runaway Utes, old:
"Captains Johnson and rax tun. Tenth
cavMlry, striking Vte trail on X2d, reached
their camp on Spring creek and Little
Powder river forty miles from Gillette,
where a council u held with Chief
Appuh's band on the morning of the 23d.
It would uppear that the band camped with
Appah contested of about DUO, with few
Women and children in sight, and about
UO ilghtinK men. They are fully armed,
have, their belts full of ammunition, and
bave from 300 to 4T0 good ponies, 10,000
pounds of flour, purchased In Gillette, and
a large amount of venison. Their trans
portation Is mostly travols, with a few old
Indians to He Takes to Meade.
"Willi sullen and uncommunicative with
reference to the subject of their return
to the Uintah reservation, yet they ex-

and expressed un Intention of conducting
themselves peacefully und lawfully. In
this connection I have Iwcn unable to
ascertain uny illegul acts by them, except
the killing Of game. They- delayed moving
to hold a council with Johnson and Pnjttou.
but declined to remain where they were
pending further councils. At noon on
the 22d the entire bund moved down the
Little Powder with the announced Inten
tion of proceeding to Cherry creek. In the
Blutk Hills, .but in Captain Johnson's
opinion they are heuded for Montana.
Johnson states that thoy will certainly not
return to the reservation unless compelled
by a decidedly superior force, and is fur
thelr of the opinion that they will resist
any small force, In which opinion Major
Grlerson Joins. Under these conditions, In
order to avoid bloodshed. I have ordered
Colonel Rogers and six troops of the Sixth
cavalry to take the field with Belle Kourche
as a baen. He has been instructed to In
tercept Appah's band and compel them
to return with him to Tort Meade, where
the entire band of Indians will be held as
prisoners awaiting Instructions from the j
War department as to tneir disposition.
Rogers has been instructed to deal tact
fully with them and avoid recourse to force
save In the last extremity, but his orders
are positive to bring the entire band into
Fort Meade. Major Grlerson has been
ordered to follow the Utes with two troops,
his only force, two other troops being
snowbound near Crawford. Major Grlerson
Is directed to avoid any resort to arms, as
his force Is inferior to the reported light
ing strength of the Vte, but he will keep
In contact with thorn and keep these head
quarters advised of their movements.
Store Troops May Be Seeded.
"Should they proceed toward the thcy
eune reservation it will become necessary to
put the remainder of the Fort Robinson
gurrlion In tho tlelu, operating from some
suitable point 011 the Burlington railroad
near tehtrtdan as a base. In this contin
gency the Keogli command, which has
been kept ready lor the field, may be calKd
Into play. The character of the country,
the great distances agd the unusually early
advent of winter storms will necessarily
entail hardships, and of course the ex
peuisea of operations must be considerable.
Although the original orders to cause the
return of the Utes to their reservations
were btiaed on a formal call of the gove
rnor of Wyoming, yet it Is assumed that
the rnlllt at y operations are to continue
even thoufih the Indians enter South Da
kota or Montana, and even though they
carry out their announced Intention of
lawful and peaceful procedure.

of 1W1, during the ensuing year before the
law goes finally Into effect.
In the meantime, should the clergy refuse
to yield, a ministerial declaration will be
Issued. Indicating very clearly th" Inten
tion of the csblnet to ask Parliament for
special legislation to meet the situation.
The nture of the measures contemplated,
however, will not be disclosed, although if
is announced that they have -Teen agreed
upon. Some of the newspapers declare that
the council of state, after consideration of
the question of what constitutes a legal
association under the law. Is prepnred to
render a decision that only associations
formed with the consent of the forme
church wardens and parish priests are
legally entitled to take over church prop
erty, those formed by outsiders having no
previous connection with the church mar
dens or parish priests, being Irregular.
If this proves to be correct, the decision
will give an Impetus to schls'n. as of all
the associations thus far constituted but
two have the concurrence of both the
parish priest and church wardens, and
these have been formally Interdicted by
the bishops.

distributing the same out over tr entire etate as is now done. If
the republloan platform Is enaoted Into law it will mean that every

taxes and that Omaha will be the beneficiary. The Omaha Bee has
alrsady pledged ninety republloan oandldatee in the legislature on
thie proposition. The other republican candidates refused to give

CANTON, O., Oct. Aft.r a whirl of
hulf a day over n section of northeastern
Ohio WlUium J. Bryan spoke here at 1:30
o'clock this afternoon for an hour to a
large audience In the Auditorium. He had
plonned a visit to the McKlnley tomb, but
a belated train disarranged the schedule
and be ,was forced to omit the trip. In
opening his, address Mr. Bryan referred to
McKlnley as follows:
In former canvasses of this state I have
nrtt had the oonortnnltv to speak st Canton
as some ether people, have. This was u
to the fact that my opponent's home was
here. We always recognise local pride.
That I was defeated in two former cam
paigns by a man whose spirit-of private life
and public character were , so high and
po universally admitted will always give
me a sense of comfortable pleasure.
A complimentary reference was made to
the work of President Roosevelt.
"Why Is It that the president stands out
In popularity?" asked Mr. Bryan, "It Is 1
because he 'is the one man who has had
courage enough to abandon a republican
platform and follow a democratic platform.
But don't blame the president for adopting
democratic Ideas. He could not go In the j
right direction Hnd do anything else. We
have had our fight for years, and now we
are going In the re me direction, repub-
llcane, democrats and populists, with 'demo
crats away ahead."

GRAND ISLAND, Neb., Feb. S, liX'S.-At
tho . meeting of the Democratic ; Editorial
association this evening resolutions were
unanimously adopted endorsing House Itoll
171 and rlfo the revenue measure, now be
fore the Nebraska lcgMature. A spoclal
committee, of which C. J. Bowlby, editor
of the Crete Democrat was chairman and
C D. Caspar, editor of the David City
Press1, was secretary, reported the fol
lowing: Wi deaounoe the attempt of tke railway
lobby to deceive the pnbUo with respect
to House oll 171, mow peadlnf before the
Nebraska legislature, the same being a
bill designed to require railroad companies
to bear their Jnst proportion of taxation
In cities of the metropolitan class.
The attempt on tbe part of the railroad
lobby to make it appear through editorial,
admittedly written by the lobby and paid
for by the railroads, that this measure.
If enacted Into law, wonld affect taxes to
be paid by the railroads for state, county
and school purposes la Indefensible and
deserves prompt and vigorous rebuke at
the hands of all who believe that the
truth should be know with respect to
every public measure and who object to
the escape of taxation by tbe railroads for
state, county, olty or school purposes.
We believe it to be the (duty of every
democratlo member- of the legislature to
vote for Mouse atoll 171 and register his
protest in an effective way against the at
tempt of the railroads to deceive the peo
ple, and through such deception escape
their proportion of taxation.
This resolution was thoroughly discussed
and was adopted by a unaulmous vote of
the association.
Action of Democratic F.JHors.
The World-Herald congratulates the Dem
ocratic Editorial Association of Nebraska
upon the adoption of a resolution endorsing
House Roll 171 (providing for municipal
taxation of railway terminals). Although I
the railroad lobby l exerting Its best ef- j
forts to hoodwink the people with respect J
to this bill, It hus failed to pull the wool
over the optics of the democratic editors
of this state.
The democratic editors have taken the
correct position. It Is to be hoped that tho
suggestion they mnke to the members of
the legislature will be adopted by nt least
every democratic and populist member.

Omahuns are taking to their Hore
Show Just like a certain web-footei blid
takes to water. And It ia said sue, i con
duct Is doing Omaha much good in more
ways than one. It places the iltj tu u
class that Is looked up to by moil and
women of affairs throughout tho country
and stimulates among the cltlsenshlp a
deal re for the better and ennobling thing'
of life. Whatever speculative opinions may
have been entertained previously regarding
the Omaha Horse Show have since com
pletely vanished to make way for a per
manent place In the hearts of Omaha peo
ple. Many who merely regarded the hoise
as a four-footed animal and as an object
of labor or speed, or even show, now re
gard the horse as something worthy of a .
higher place In the list of man's posea- ..
The educational results of the show ars
manifest not only In the mnnner In which
the good animals are recognised the mo
ment they enter the ring, but in the In
creasing number of really good horses
owned and driven In the city. At the time
the first Horse Show was talked of tho
number of really fine animals In the city
were few and the number of stylish
equipages still leea. Todoy few If any cities
of Omaha's slse can boast of so many hlgli
clussj hojrses or .stylish turnouts. This bet
torment is not noti'd slone among those
who exhibit at the show, but the example
of these has been emulated as far as
means would permit by hundreds of others.
Fifth Mgbt Ip to Standard
Last evening the fifth of the 19o Hors
Show week, did not suffer any by conipai l
son with the other evenings of the week.
In spite of the bad weather. The horses
were as animated as ever, tho Judgos as
alert, the spectators us keen to discern the
various Teatures offered for their delecta
tion and the beautifully gowned women u
lUuctlve M on ,ny other evening of the
present season. The boxes and arena
seats were wtll filled, while the balcony
seats were fairly well taken. In all, the
crowd was of goodly proportions and highly
appreciative and uttentlve, even If the en
thusiasm was not as noticeable as on pre
vious occasions. But It Is remembered
that Horse Show votaries do not show thtlr
feelings after the manner of the base bull
fan or foot ball crank.
One of the inspiring features of the even-
harness of the best patterns. These noble
animals, evidently conscious of their ex
cluelvenees. were sent around the tunbank
and put through trials that sroueed the
crowd to a high point of enthusiasm. J.
M. Kuykendall, one ot the Judges, took the
lines of the Swift team and took a whirl
around on his own account, but evidently
the Swift driver had been doing eon driv
ing before Friday evening, for he could
turn the outfit in its own space and them
do some more surprising stunts with tbe
big wagon and its six noble horses.
Impartial with Applanae.
While tne slx-horsc team event was go
ing on the crowd filed In and was well
seated when the tlrst regular event, class
V). harness horses was announced. The
exhibitors tn that event were all local
owners and as the equipages passed trie-
' boxes chejrs were generously offered by
I thoee who wanted to see their fuvorltu
' win a prise, but when the winners wer
1 determined those who. had cheered for
other burses were not stingy In giving due
honor to the winners. The upoearano'
of the hunters lust evening elicited a gen-
erous ro-ind of applause. The element .f
exhilaration which enters Into that, sport
seems Infectious.
Interest In the Jumpers, saddle ponies and
four-ln-hands was unabated. The four-ln-hands
always appeal to the spectators and
are In high favor when on the tanbark.
I Last evening was Bt. Joseph night, which
! designation of the evening served to bring
a number of horsemen and women from the
Missouri city. This afternoon a special
priced matinee will be given and this even
ing the curtain will be rung down on the
l'.-d Horse Show.
