rendered uncomfortab'e tlie position of
the recalcitrant Navajo Indian encamped
on Beautiful mountain near Ship Hock,
and cooled somewhut the ardor of their
sympathizers. These conditions gave en
couragement to offerer officials, who
have been trying to secure a settlement
without bloodshed. The hope was ex
pressed today that continued unfavor

to weaken In their avowed determination
to fight If any attempt were made to
caoture the seven braves wanted by the
United States court In New Mexico.
Another hopeful sign was the action of
one of the accused Indians today In sur

U A. WELSH, Local Observer.
to Accusations by Oil
(From a Staff Correspondent.)
WASHINGTON, D. C. Nov. SO.-tSre-clal.)-The
Lincoln INcb.) Star In a re
cent editorial recited charges that "oil
trust" Influence had operated on former
Secretary of the Interior Fisher. First
Assistant Secretary Adams and F. II.
Abbott, acting commissioner of Indian
affairs, to prevent the Uncle Sam Oil
company and their associates from secur
ing leases covering WO,000 acres of Val
uable oil land on the Osage Indian res
ervation. Commenting on these charges Mr. Ab
"One of the very hardest fights I have
had In. the Indian service was the one to
save to tho Osage Indians the Immense
oil wealth underlying their reservation.
In that fight I had the unfaltering sup
port of Secretary Fisher, First Assistant
Secretary Adams and President Tatt,
and we won,
' "Without waiting for the promulgation
of regulations to govern the leasing of
the Ofcage oil land by the secretary of
the Interior as provided by law, the Uncle
Snin Oil company and Its associates dealt
directly with the Osago Indian council,
which under the law executes tribal
leases, and they negotiated a lease with
the Osage council offering a bonus of
only 1200,000, nnd this not in cash, but to
be paid out of oil produced, If found, and
In addition a royalty of onlv 1214 per
cent for lenses on the entire SOO.000 acre
of ilnleased oil and gas land of the Osage
Indians. On February 20, 1912. and again,
and finally, on June It, 1?12, Secretary
Adams and I rejected the offer of Hie
Uncle Sam Oil company and Its associ
ates, asserting that no leases of these
lands would bo approved by us until after
rogulntlons were prepared and promul
gated as required by law. On July 3.
1912. regulations were promulgated by us
In accordance with these principles, and
soon thereafter we advertised for bids on
a portion of these lands.
"Leasing under these regulations, the
Osago Indians have already received a
total In cash bonuses of $5,2M.0. or
nearly JXO.000 In cash more on only 33.083
acres of their land than the Uncle Sam
Oil company and its associates offered
In noncash bonus for tho whole 800.000
acres, besides receiving a royalty of 16?
per cent Instead of tho royalty of 12Hi
per cent offered by tho Uncle Sam Oil
"Secretary Fisher and Secretary Adams
and I had publicly and definitely refused
to approve these leases more than six
months prior to January. 1913. the date
named as the tlmo of my alleged meet
ing with Congressman McGuIre. In short.
on the date of the alleged meeting at the
hotel the power to validate these leases
had for months been out of my hands,
out of the hands of Secretary Adam.
Secretary Fisher and President Taft, and.
the leases were dead except In the litera
ture of the Uncle Sam QH company.?
Abseioe ofr Middle
Class Makes Old
WORCESTER. Mass., "fov. 20, Luis
Cabrera, representative of the Mexican
constitutionalist's parly In his address at
Clark university today said:
"The reason for the Instability of Mex
ican conditions Is tho ubsence of a middle
class. Without the middle class there Is
no real social equilibrium, no peace, and
no democratic torm of government. The
constitutionalists' movement tends to
ward the formation of a middle class
through the creation of favorable condi
tion of life for the masses. The colonial
policies of Spain In Moxlco contributed
largely to the. creation of privileged
classes. Large tracts of lauds were
granted to soldiers, conquerors, and to
the church. Thousands of Indians were
compelled to live on and work the land
so granted. The independence of Mexico In
1F10 did not materially change the condi
tions of the masses. The great land es
tates owned by wealthy families still re
main In thclr-posesslon and are responsi
ble fqr Mexico's economic crisis,
"Owing to the dictatorial personal pow
ers exercised by General Diaz from MW
to 1910, the people of Mexico have not
been given' an opportunity to lest their
constitution, but study, and recent de
velopments have proved that in certain
particulars the constitution of Mexico Is
not fitted for the needs of thn people.
"The problem now confronting tho con
stitutionally party Is the promotion if
conditions cieatlng a stable middle class.
This must be accomplished by political
reform measures, as well as by the en
actment of agrarian lnws to equalize
taxation between the pmall farms and
large estates, as well as to ultimately di
vide the large estates Into smaller tracts

and Kopf In the murder of Julian Ba
haud, rich old retired afrmer who UVtd
alone on the outskirts of the town of
Julian, named for himself. The Bahaud
murder niystery had puzzled tho authori
ties for fifteen years and the story of
Kopfs arrest was given publicity
throughout the country. He was brought
to Omaha and for a short time was
lodged In tho county Jail where he re
peatedly Insisted he was innocent. "I
knew Bahund," he said, "he was a nice
old man." ,
Shellenberger1 trial Is to begin next
week at Auburn and Kopfs is scheduled
to follow Immediately after,
It happened recently that Mr, Watson
was discussing tho murder of Allen Jones
and his wife, for which lid D. Neal was
hanged near the old court house Octo
ber 9, 1S91. He remembered that a name,
Joe Shellenberger, had been connected
with it. He made this discovery:
Joe Shellenberger, without any known
reason, in 18$0. made a supposed confer
stontut i yij'raplUatetLlir.the itojafei.
charyedlwlth the crime before it became
known that. his statement was false. May1
22. 10. the case against Shellenberger
was dismissed by T J. Mahoney, then
county attorney, and hp was released
from custody. Shellenberger's full name
Is Joe Fuller Shellenberger.
The 'Jones murders and tho hanging of
Neal created tremendous excitement. The
crime was committed on the Plnney farm
near oSuth Omaha, Neal shot Allen
Jones twice, bo tli wounds being described
as mortal at Neat's trial. Soon after
Neal was arrested Shellenberger created
another sensation by his false confes
sion, in which he said he had assisted
Neal In the murders. Neal had a bad
record and was known as "alias IJving
ston, alias Caton, alias Keyton, ' while
Shellenberger's reputation was good.
HiKlit years later the scene Is shifted
to Julian, where Bahaud, the rich old
recluse, Shellenberger and Kopf were liv
ing. Bahaud was reputed to have a,
large amount of money burled about his
premises. He was murdered, but whether
the murderer profited financially by his
act was never known. Neither Shellen
berger or Kopf were ever suspected. Doth
In later years left the town.
