NEARLY FOUR MILLION DOLLARS
I Many Instances Fees Are More

the Value of the Property
SULPHUR. Okl., Aug. 17. In response to
request from Commissioner of Indian
Affalra Valentine the special congressional
committee Investigating Indian land af
fairs today forwarded to Beverly, Mas., a
Htutement covering the amount of attor
neys' fee paid by the Indians. The state
ment was said to be for the uo of Presi
It oovers a period of twenty years and
embraces money paid out as contingent
fees. H shows the total money so paid
was $3,893,304.54; u,mong the larguHt fees was
(789,000 paid by tuo Chickasaw Indians to
recover 82,858,708. The eastern Cherokee
paid a fee of $720,000. In some distances
the fees paid were as high as 25 per Cent
of tiie property Involved. The request to
the committee for the figures is taken as
Indicating that President Taft has decided
to Interest himself In the present Investiga
tion, which grew out of Senator T. P.
Gore's charges of attempted bribery.
Much Legal Business.
Indian have so much legal business they
have to employ lawyers by the half dozen,
according to Douglas H. Johnston, governor
of the Chickasaw tribe of Indians, who
testified today before the congressional
committee Investigating Indian land af
Governor Johnston, who was called as
one of the chief witnesses In the Investiga
tion of the McMurray contract, testified
he wa utuuble to state what service mime
of the lawyer were paid for. Th lawyer
were employed previous to the existence of
the present contracts.
Here are some of the expenditure which,
according to Governor Johnston, were made
by the Indians for. legal service:
Paid J. F. McMurray' law firm $5,000 a
year, with $7,200 experlse; paid McMurray'
firm another $5,000 a year at the same time
on another contract; paid McMurray $750,000
as special fee in the cltlxenshlp cases with
an expense account of $300,000; paid four
other attorneys an aggregate of $10,000 a
year. It was the belief. Governor John
ston testified, that without the employ
ment of so many attorneys the Indiana
would have lost million of dollar.
In reply to questions put to him In pra-
vlou examination In which he wa asked
to explain how he came to deposit $76,000 to
his personal account after McMurray had
been paid the $750,000 fee. Governor1 John
ston declared he never possessed $75,000.

Building Inspector Withnell Declares
Pleasure and Announces Flans
for Fire Protection.
The ordinance extending the fire limits
of Omaha, which vaa passed by the city
council Tufsdsy night, makes the following
On Farnam street, to Fortieth; former
limit, Twenty-fourth' street.
On Leavenworth, to Fortieth; former
limit, Twenty-fourth street. -
On Cuming, to Fortieth; former limit,

On Sherman avenue, to Wirt; formerly
130 feet north of Nicholas street.
On Thirteenth, to Vinton; formerly Pierce
On Tenth, to 'Bancroft; formerly Pierce
Building Inspector Withnell is much
pleased over the passage of the new ordi
nance. "It should have been passed long
ago," he said. "It will enable this de
partment to see to it that no more wooden
shacks are erected alongside of and In
between good modern bulldlgs. Within a
few years we win ' thus have very cred
itable street fronts HI along the rapidly
extending business streets, and Omaha will
get the credit It deserves, among travelers
and officials from other cities and states,
as an up-to-date city.
"Let me say that our contention In the
matter of the new addition to the deaf
I Institute wa not for the fee such a permit
would bring, but simply to have plans and
specifications submitted so that we can
know exactly what sort of buildings are
being put up In Omaha. Th United States
government always md plans and speci
fications to this office for Its new build
ings, and wa felt that no exception should
be made in the case of the state. In fact,
the state should be the leader In observing
all laws made for the protection of the
community. The fee Is of no consequence
and the council did right In waiving It In
RECORD FLIGHT BY MOISSANT
(Continued from First Page.)
neux, who was forced to retire in the early
stage of ,the race, finished with LeBlanc
There was a moment of tumultuous
Cheering a LeBlanc appeared above Issy
In the early dawn. The authorities, In
anticipation of the excitement of the enor
mous crowds, had cordoned the alighting
place at Issy ' with hundreds of police,
backed by a regiment of cuirassiers.
Nevertheless the spectator In an lrre-
sistlble rush broke throughv the lino , and
bora the victor on their shoulders to, Gen
eral Brun, the minister of war, who with
his staff and other high officials had ap
peared at the finish to welcome the victor.
Before the cheering for . LeBiano died
down Aubrun in his monoplane Bhot into
sight at the very point In the sky where
LeBlanc had first been seen, and following
the victor's wake crossed the Una and made
an equally graceful landing.
In close succession to LeBlanc and Au
brun came Legagneux and five army offi
cers, who had acted as escorts to the con
testants In the last stage of the flight, the
trip of eight aeroplanes across the country
simultaneously and under prearranged con
ditions demonstrating to what an extent
the 90 n test of air ha been carried.
Such a gallery of spectators ha never
before been seen In Paris. Eiffel tower was
chosen as a point of vantage by crowds of
spectators, and the towering steel struc
ture, like the housetops and other elevated
point In the city, was black with people
watching the finish.
On the field at Issy where the aviators
finished 200,000 spectators had gathered.
When. LeBlanc' monoplane was sighted the
crowd wss seized with a perfect delirium.

D. P. INCREAStS EARNING
In Spite of Big Expenditures Road
Shows Great Gain.
INDICATES FUTURE STRIDES
Railroad's Statement of Income Shows
Gnln of Nearly Two Per Cent
on Common Stork for the
Preliminary statements " of the Income
account of the Union Pacific and Southern
Pacific railroad just Issued show a re
markable increase for both lines. Espec
ially Is the gain for the Union Pacific
indicated as remarkable. According to the
statement the Union Pacific earned 19.27
per cent on Its 1216,379.700 common stock
now outstanding for the yesr ending June
30, 1910, against IV. 86 per cent last year.
This figure does not nearly show the real
growth of earnings made by the road, as
prodigious outlays have been made in the
last year to make up for the retrenchment
that was carried out the year before. No
particular reason Is advanced In the road's
statement for the situation of Increased
Income, save the fact that general pros
perity probably has brought the Increases
Taken in conjunction, the Income ac
counts of Union and Southern Pacific for
the year past add another notable chapter
to a volume of achievement in the realm of
railroad finance, a chapter that suggests
what these properties should do In the
future, normal prosperity giving the de
velopment that may fairly be expected.
In Union Pacific territory, gross earn
ings will mount indefinitely, according to
railroad men. With the careful manage
ment the properties are receiving, any ad
ditional capital necessary to provide further
facilities should soon be earning Its rel
ative proportion for stock.
Following are the preliminary Union Pa
cific Income account figures for the fiscal
year 1910, with changes from 1909:

MARSHALLTOWN, la.. Aug. 17-(Speclal)
The fifth annual convention of the Iowa
State Association of Elksu formally opened
here today. Discouraging ' weather cut
down todaV'B a.UendeKjic and caused a
postponement of the morning's program of
sports. Heaviest rata of the year fell early
in the day, but the program was carried
out in the afternoon. " Des Moines lodge
No. 98 won the baseball tournament and
first money, 835, by beating Mason City
loge 12 to 4. Mason ICty got second money,
$15, by beating Oskaloosa," 8 to 2. Other
events of the afternoon were horse ana
auto race. The politician are getting
busy preceedlng the annual meeting of the
association, to be held Thursday. Jerry B.
Sullivan, the prominent democrat of Des
MolneB, 1 practically conceeded the pres
idency without opposition. George T. Red
dick of Iowa City Is likely to succeed Sul
livan in the first vice presidency. Secre
tary J. R. Frailey of Fort Madison will
probably be re-elected. It Is generally be
lieved that the next convention will go to
Sioux City. Davenport and Dubuque are
after it, but Sioux City is a strong favor
ite. An Important amendment to the con
stitution which will treble the per capita
tax for the state association will un
doubtedly be adopted. Visiting Elk are

Morgan's Death Accidental.
LOOAN. la., Aug.- 17.-(Speclal.)-The ver
dict of the coroner Jury is that Chauncey
Morgan came to his death accidentally her
yesterday niornlng by being struck by a
westbound train on the Chicago, North
western track between the freight and pas
senger depot, near th crossing. It was es
tablished beyond a reaonable doubt that he
wa walking on the end of the tie, and in
the direction the train wa going, which
truck and killed him. Hi failure to hear
the approaching train waa doubtleua due
to the noise incident to the east-going
freight train on the adjoining track.

Geo. F. Gilmore, Pres. Paul W. Kuhns, Secy and Treas.
to Buy Pasture
Negotiations for Purchase of Fart of
Famous "Cow PastureVNow
Negotiations between John A. MShane
and the Omaha Country club for the sal
of the famous ' "cow pasture" are still In
progress, and the outlook, now Is for a
favorable result. ''
The Country club doc not plan to buy
all the tract, which was once the subject
of a court Injunction against the feeding of
cattle, ven If a price agreement Is reached.
The propoHRl now is- to take about twenty
acres and void the lease on the rest of the
tract. Mr. McShane would like to sell the
balanco independently and wlH do. this if
the. ten-year lease is abrogated.
His idea Is that the property Is worth
all of $500 an acre, while the Country club
suggests that tm would be a good price.
Although this la a difference of $150 an
acre, there Is some' chance that an agree
ment will bo reached. Th Country club
hopes that Mr. McShane will come down a
little and Is figuring that ten years' total
rental will pretty nearly make up the dif
ference between its figure and th owners.
Country club men declare that there will
be no objection now to buying in the prop
erty If a price Is agreed upon, for the
feeling which existed at one time has been
blown away by summer breeies.
The chief complaint of Country club men
now Is the roughness of the roads over
which automobiles must p'ass. The Mili
tary avenue Is none too smooth, and. the
Dundee way Is. also full of bumps.
