CHIEF CLERK TELLS OF WOEK
W. W. fmill of Macr Sara Red Man
Takes Kindly to eetlona of
OOTtrnmfitt Abbott to
Make Trip Weat.
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
WASHINGTON, Sept. ".-(Special Tale-gram.)-W.
W. Small, chief clerk of the
Omaha and Winnebago Indian reservations,
stationed at Macy, Neb., accompanied bjr
Mrs. Macy, arrived in Washington today
and called to pay his respects to Acting
Indian Commissioner Abbott. Mr. Small
Is east partly on departmental business
and, that concludded, will take a short trip
along theAtlantlo seaboard for pleaaure.
Tha plan Inaugurated by Assistant Com
missioner Ti H. Abbott some three years
ago of appointing a number of practical
farmers to teach the Indians the more
modern methods of agriculture Is now
bearing out the wisdom of these appoint
ments. Not only rn the Winnebago and
Omaha reservatlpns have the Indians taken
kindly to the suggestions of the 'govern
ment farmer, but upon many other reser
vations gratifying reports are being re
ceived as to crop conditions on reserva
tions, where allottments have been entirely
cultivated by the Indian.
On the Omaha reservation the progress
Is not so marked as among the Wlnne
bagoes. Still, their work has been fair
this year, considering weather conditions.
Two years before the practical farmer ar
rived on tha Winnebago reservation there
were but 3.000 acres under cultivation by
tha Indiana.- This year ther are 11.000
acres under profitable cultivation. In addi
tion. It is reported that at least 100 homes
har been buHt by tha Wlnnebagoes upon
their allottments. " , ' ,
Good If ear for Wlnnebasroea. 1
In speaking of conditions among the
WlnnebagoaatV, Mr. Small , said: 'The
Wtnnebagoes have had the best year of
their history! Doiens of them have" gone
upon and are farming their allottments;
doxena of little homes have been built;'
they are handling 11,000 acres of land and
are growing crops of an estimated value
Of $90,000. There are not more than S7 per
cent as many chattel mortgages on grow
ing crops as thera were last year, with at
least 15 per cent more crops. There are
now in the course of. construction twelve
homes and plans for as many more are
Drunkenness, which was so prevalent
' among these Indians a few years ago, has
Assistant Indian Commissioner V. H.
Abbott will leave Washington on Septem
ber 17 for a qouple of weeks' official busi
ness, first at Chicago, to superintend the
opening of bids for tha food supply for
the Indians for the next fiscal year. From
Chicago Mr. Abbott will go to Fort Batho dt
Indian reservation In North Dakota to
attend the first snnual Indian fair during
the weak of September 20. Mr. ' Abbott la
no stranger on the Fort Bertholdt reserva
tion, having, in company of Representa
tive Hanna, visited the Indians two years
ago and In council with them a treaty was
drawn whereby some 238,000 acres of this
land will be thrown open to settlement.
During that visit Commissioner Abbott
gained the consent of the Indians to an
appropriation of $26,000 out of their trust
' fund to be used In the development of a
Abbott Goes to Fargo.
After the fair Mr. Abbott will go to
Fargo to confer with Representative Hanna
to confer and discuss various methods re
lating to the opening of this reserve. It
appears that underlying these agricultural
lands are large deposits of coal and It is
tha purpose of the department to so frame
legislation that only-surface entries mar
be made upon these lands, the roal beneath
remaining forever the property of the
tribesmen. This matter will ba thoroughly
discussed by Commissioner Abbott and
Representative Hanna with the Indiana
and it la hoped an amicable agreement may
ba reported. Mr. Abbott will also vls't
Davll't Iake and Cheyenne in South Da
kota and hopes to have time to visit the
several Indian reservations In Nebraska.
His last stop on his eastward lourneyi
wall be at Omaha to look into affairs per
talnlng to the Ind an warehouse.
Great Chinese Flood
Reported by Wilder
WASHINGTON, Sept. . The enormity
and horror of the famine situation con
fronting China, caused by the overflow of
tha Tang-Tsen river, was officially re
ported to the State department by Amer
ican Consul General Wilder at Shanghai,

assistance Is under consideration. -
The entire territory between Hankow and
Shanghai a distance of about 600 miles
has been overflowed, Mr. Wilder deolarvs.
Cities and towns are under water, many
dwellings being entirely submerged. Be
cause of the scarcity of rice and the de
struction of the fields the cost of living has
risen to tha highest point aver attained.

lt.'s He got out of tha machine and walked
across to tha OpposltSA the road from

there a minute, he came back with some
thing in his hands. I could not see what it
was in the dark. The w6man was stand

hand seat In the front part of therv auto
mobile when the man came back.
Heard the Woman' Scream.
. "Just when the man cam back I heard
the woman scream once. "Then the man,
who was standing In the .-road, swung
what he had In his hand and hit the
woman on the right side of the face. She
fell from the machine to the road and did
iot make a sound.
"For a minute the man stood looking at
her and then I heard him say: 'Damn you,
you're not dead yet. I'll fix you.' Then he
up with a gun, which was what he had hit
the woman with and he shot her where she
lay in tha road by the front seat of the
automobile. I did not see where he shot
her. I saw him throw the gun somewhere
and he began to lift the body to the front
seat , of the automobile, and I came out
from the trees.
"The man turned around and saw me and
said to me: 'Did you see this?'
"I told him yes I had seen it. 'D-n you,
what the h I are you going to do about
it?' he said. I didn't say anything. Then
he began to threaten me. He said he was
rich and had lots of friends tn Richmond
and if I told on htm he would have me
killed somehow. He said nobody would
believe 'my story If I appeared In court
against him anyway and I had better gel
out. He said he would give me some money
and a suit of clothes If I would go away.
"I told the man I would go away. Then
he told me to come to Beattle's store the
next day and thsrs would be some money
for me. I went and he got some money
and bought a suit of clothes. I stayed In
South Richmond for two days then, but
I was so scared and got so nervous after

map of the west in Important particulars
is provided 'for in plans made known to
day by Newton Erb, who, with Edwin
Hawley, is actively engaged in the under

extend the Iowa Central' to St Louis and
the Minneapolis & St. Louts to the Cana
dian border, thus giving the Hawley-Erb
group of railroads the through route from
the wheat fields of northwestern Canada
to Galveston. It is expected that both ths

through ownership of the Iowa Central
common stock by the Interests in control of
Minneapolis & St. Paul. The leasing of
the Iowa Central probably will lead to a
merger of the two roads, Mr. Erb said. The
laws of Illinois, under which the Iowa
Central Is incorporated, he explained.
would permit absorption of a leased line.
atlhough the merger could not be legal
before the lease is made.
