Indians Sell Many
Carloads of Cattle
Here and in Chicago
Chicago, Sept. 27. Thirty-four car
loads of cattle from a shipment of
fifty-one cars, seventeen 6( which
were sold at Omaha yesterday, were
sold at the market here today by In
dians from the Crow reservation in
Montana, the first important sales
two years ago by the sale of lands of
the reservation. The fifty-one cars
brought $97,993.
Cato Sells, United States commis
sioner of Indian affairs, supervised the
sale for the Indians. He said it was
the first direct benefit the Indians had
received from the government policy
lof using the grazing lands on the
reservation for the benefit of the In
dians. "All of these cattle were range
grazed and grass fed," he said. "Not
a pound of corn or other feed than
grass or hay had been given them.
"Two years ago we purchased for
the Crows 7,000 2-year-old heifers,
2,000 yearling steers and 350 bulls. In
cluding the increase in the herd, the
Indians' profit on the original pur
chase in twenty-seven months, after
paying all expenses, has been $350,000.
The first year the Indians cut and
stacked 5,000 tons of hay to winter
their herds and last winter 7,000 tons."

Long Branch, N. J., Sept. 27. As a
result of the conference today be

Samuel Seabury, democratic candidate
for governor of New York, the presi
dent is expected to make one or more
speeches i.i New York within the next
few weeks. Final arrangements have

The presidentihas been told that it
is imperative that the democrats carry
New York and it is said concentrated
efforts will be made to present the
democratic case to New York voters.
No Connection They Say.
The announcement of a lone itiner
ary for speeches in New York to be
made by Charles E. Hughes, theS re
publican nominee, was read with in
terest by democratic leaders here to
day, but it was said that Mr. Hughes'
plans would have no effect on those
of the president.
In spite of the determination of Mr.
Wilson to make only nonDOlitical
speeches on his forthcoming trips
away from Shadow Lawri, it appeared
probable tonight that he would tind

Stolen silks valued at nearly $ 1 .500
were recovered last night by Detec

when he arrested Reba McKcndrick,
a salewoman in the store who lives
at 204 South Twenty-sixth street.
Her confession led to the arrest of

Detective Finn has known for
months' that valuable silks and pat
terns have been disappearing from the
store, but could find no trace of the
manner of disappearance, until yes
terday, when his suspicions centered
upon Miss McKendrick. When he
trapped her as she pocketed some
money paid over by a decoy
purchaser, she made a written con
fusion. Passed Goods Over Counters.
She said she passed hundreds of
dollars' worth of merchandise over
the counter to Miss Williams and
Miss Turner, and checked in only a
few dollars in return. The stealing,
she declared in her confession, has

during which time thousands of dol
