Iimi'i Senior Senator Looking Better

NEBRASKA MEMBERS OX HAUD

Dakota, Not Likely to Be Opeaed
for Settlement I ntll Jtext
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
WASHINGTON. Nov. 80. (Special Tele
gram.) Senator William B. Allison of Iowa,
looking better than he hasv for several
years, is In Washington for the coming
session of congress and was greeted by
many friends, not only In the cspltol, but
upon ths streets, where ha Is a familiar
figure. Speaking of the financial situation,
ths chairman of the senate committee on
appropriations, ssld: '
"I think It likely the present trouble will
be over In ten days. If It continues then
It will be necessary to enact aome measure
providing for emergency currency."
Discussing the subject of asset or credit
currency, along the lines proposed by the
Fowler bill, Benator Allison said hs thought
fl doubtful whether congress would pass
any bill of this sort. He said he thought
any emergency currency would have to be
one that was "safely guarded." By this,
it is presumed. Senator Allison refers to
currency thst will have some form of bonds
as security for It, though hs said he was
not prepared fully at this time to say what
safeguards ha would require.
As to legislation modifying the national
banking laws, Senator Allison does not be
lieve any wilt bo. enacted at this session.
He says, however, that a modification of
the existing plan, whereby grest sums In
bank reserves find their way Into a few
oentral oierve cities. Is a subject that
might properly be gone Into by .oongress,
though he does not expect It at this session.
It Is noticeable that Senator Allison's
position ss to asset or credit currency Is
substantially the same as that of President
Roosevelt," who likewise does' not sanction
ths plan of an' emergency currency based
oa tha general assets of ths banks.
President Roosevelt has advised with
Senator Allison by letter as to currency
legislation. Now that Senator Allison Is
here, hs and tha president undoubtedly will
hold Important conferences on this subject.
It III almost certain that Senators A Id rich
and Allison, ona the head of ths finance
committee and the other the second rank
ing member, will have a great share In ths
fashioning of any currency legislation that
may pass the senato and get through
Senator Brown Arrives.
Senator Norrls Brown arrived la Wash
ington yesterday and was todsy busy get
ting his office at the capitol In working
shape. Mr. Brown, will have with him
during ths coming session his daughters,
Miss Liuclle and June, and they will oc
cupy an apartment at the Portland.
Senator Brown has with him in Washing
ton Miss Anna Howland of Lincoln, who
will be his prlvata secretary. Miss How
land having been associated with the sen
ator when ho was attorney general.
Senator Brown ssld that hs had not been
long enough In Washington to even pre
sume to discuss prospective legislation and
had not made any calls at the several de
partments. "Of. course," said he, "I am
not precisely a strsnger In Washington,
Jaut I have not actually been sworn In
as United States senator and am ooptent
to bide my tlrn'o to malfe some suggestions
as to the appointments and other matters
of Interest to my state."
Wlsutbsgoti Want Graveyard.
A graveyard Is needed on the Winnebago
reservation and Senator Burkett has taksn
ths matter up and todsy made the first
overtures at the Indian bureau to fill this
long felt want. It appears that when a
Winnebago dies on the reservation there
Is very little formality as to funeral ar
rangements. Deceased is buried wherever
convenient, a shallow grave being scooped
out itnd there the body Is placed with but
" The Wtnnebagoes have an Idea that they
need a cemetery on their reservation and
have appealed to Senator Burkett to aid
thera in having a suitable plot of ground
set apart for this purpose and Senator
Burkett, who saw the graves on tho hill
sides In Thurston county, begsn, with tfte
consent of the Wlnnebagoes, an active
camnatarc In behalf of a tribal burial
ground which ho believes will be granted.
Barkett to See Foot Ball Game.
Senator Burkett has sporting blood in his
veins. He leaves Washington tomorrow
morning with Mrs. Burkett for Phlladel
phla to witness ths great foot ball contest
between ths army and navy, which Is to
be -"pulled off" on Frsnklln field between
these two arms of Uncle Sam s fighting
forces. The senator and his wife will be
guests of Oenersl Bell, chief of staff, and
will be of the party occupying his box to
view the game.
Openlag Tripp County Lands.
" Prospective settlers on Indian lands In
Tripp oounty, South Dakota, will be Inter
ested to know thst there will be 860,000
acrea to bs opened, and that the opening
will not bs before October 1. 1908. Offi
cials of tha general land office are now
engaged in making allotments of land to
the Indians In Tripp county, and up to the
present Urns their reports Indicate they will
make all told 1.(00 allotments. The report
now shows that ths allotting agent has. up
to date, made about 700 allotments.
Senator Gambia is Interesting himself In
this matter and said today that hs did not
consider It at all probable that ths unal
lotted lands would bs ready for white bid
ders before October, a year hence.
Commissions for Sooth Dakotaas
Senator Gamble Vt South Dakota was to

Removal of Police Department to New
City Jail ii Delayed.
WAIT UNTIL BUILDING IS DONE
City Attorney Has a Largo Crop of
Damage Salts to Fight, Several
of Them for Large
The plan to move the effects of the olty
Jail was abandoned yesterday morning and
the police department will remain In . the
old quarters until ths new Jail is entirely
completed. The reason for the move at
this time waa that the lease had expired
and the city wished to vacate the premises
so as to avoid the payment of another
year's rent. Testerday morning the mayor
mado arrangements with Ooorge A Co.,
who have charge of the building, to allow
the city the use of the jail and police court
for another month. The chief Is anxious
to get out of the uncomfortable quartern,
but hesitates to get Into the new Jail until
certain modifications of the structure are
made. These modifications have been fre
quently discussed by tho chief.
Yesterday he took occasion to discuss the
Inadequacy of the department to protect
tho residence portion of the city. The reg
ular beats of tho patrolmen cover only the
principal business streets and leave the
greater portion of tho residence district un
watched. Occasionally an emergency man
or a detective pays a visit to the residence
district, but not usually until after a crime
Is committed. "There should be," said the
chief, "two or three more officers, whone
beats would be flexible enough to allow
them to visit different districts and Investi
gate any suspicions characters or circum
stances, and yet they ought to be patrol
men principally and not detectlvea It Is
too much to ask the citizens to hire their
own pstrolmen by private subscription. It
looks as If the city should furnish them.
