WASHINGTON, April 20.—The Indian Rights association are arrayed against the lite removal bill which has been reported favorably in the house by a committee vote of six to four. Commissioner Morgan opposes the project, which, in fact, was blocked in the last congress. The case is a peculiar one. The Southern Ute» more than three years ago, accepted a proposal made under the authority of congress by three commissioners to exchange their present reservation in the southwest corner of Colorado for one across the border in Utah. The consideration offered to them was 850,(100 in cash and 820,000 in sheep, together-with the appraised value of all improvements made On their Colorado lands, while two of their chiefs were to receive gratuities of S "i ()0 each and two others of 8250 each. Their new reservation was also to carry the pvivilege of hunting on the unoccupied lands around the La Sal mountains.

Attention strict and prompt l;l< > One Hundred Seal Poacher* In,the Dlnputed WaterH. WASHINGTON, April 29.—In the treasury department mail this morning there came the first tidings from Alas- lea and Bearing sea for this season, the latest advices bearing date March 0, 1802. At that time there were 101) vessels, known as seal poachers, all flying either the Amercau or British Hag, in the waters contiguous to the disputed territory where seals abound. A list of these crafts was made and sent to Secretary Foster for his information, together with the names of the masters of the vessels and the compliment of each. Little sealing has been attempted yet, although a few sea otter have been killed owing to the great demand for their skins. These skins are worth now from 8175 to 8250 each, and the fact that the catch has been poor has caused a decided rise in values. They are commanding S50 more than the London market price and hunters are vigilant for herds of otter. It has been stated that difficulties might arise in the seal waters growing out of an alleged scheme by which, if American or British vessels should be prohibited from going into the sea, their owners or masters might attempt to change the papers of the vessel so as to demand the protection of some other government than those in controversy. This idea is scouted at by officials in the state and treasury departments for the reason that if a vessel should be stopped from entering the sea by cruisers of Great Britain and the United States, owing to the fact that it displayed the flag of either country, and desired ever so much to change papers, such a schem.! would be next to impossible. In the first place it would be necessary to go to some port where a minister or consul resided, and then the question might be raised whether or not such an official could act upon a proposition of the kind without consultation with the homo government. Meanwhile, it would be late for the vessel to return to the sealing grounds with any chance of getting a cargo of skins, and hence Bach a scheme would not be practicable. Attention was invited to the fact that up to date only one vessel, the I Adele, with German papers had ven- 1 tured into the scaling grounds, and that craft foundered owing to the inexperience of its crew. Hence no apprehensions are felt that tho German, Italian or Swedish governments will sanction any efforts which may be made to evade the regulations established by Great Britain and the United States regarding sealing near the Pri- bylov Islands. Sale of Charter lllghti Authorized. WASHINGTON, April 20.—The house today on motion of Mr. Broderick, of Kansas, passed tho senate bill authorizing thesale of the charter rights of the Leavenworth and Platte County Bridge company, to construct a bridge over the Missouri river at Leavenworth, Kan. The Pluinb Monument, EMFOBIA, Kan., April 29.— A circular letter to the O. A. E. posts of Kansas has been issued by tho Plumb Monument association, in pursuance of a resolution adopted by the department encampment, at ita session lu Atchison. The letter suggests May 30 as an appropriate time Jor every one who eser- vation, tho W'ccminnchc, the Moache, and the thu Capote, forms the basis of the report, made by the house committee in favor of the removal plan. It is accepted as tho wish of the Indians, expressed in accordance with law; and it is argued that since tho Utes want to go, and the people of southwestern Colorado want them to go, the agreement ought to be carried out in good faith. It is further shown that the Utes complained to Agent Parker, who was sent expressly by Commissioner Morgan to ascertain their real wishes, that the government does not keep its word about removing them, and, again, that there can be no settled plan of administration for them during the delay in carrying out the compact, The ground taken by the opponents of the removal is that the proposal to go to Utah ought never to have been made. They represent that the Indians wore satisfied to stay in Colorado, but were plied with arguments for going by the settlers, through the commissioners. They leared the whites would- encroach on their Colorado lands,' uud were tempted • with the promise to give them roaming and hunting privileges on and around a tract three times as large. As for the principal chiefs, they were obviously bribed. It may be said, however, that many valid and wise bargains for giving up all or parts of reservations have been accomplished against the original wishes of the Indians, who have been persuaded to yield by appeals to fear or cupidity. The distribution of cash, of live stuck, and of emoluments to the chiefs are among the familiar means resorted to. Besides, it seems to be admitted that the present reservation was badly laid out. It is a long, narrow strip, a hundred miles east and west, by only fifteen north and south. It lies stretched out along the New Mexico boundary in a way to impede travel and to force a great detour for the neighboring people. Since the valleys run north and south the pasturage is not so good for all seasons as if the reservation were exactly at right angles with its present direction. The Indians arc also more likely to wander out, and to become a source of anxiety to the whites. But while this review of the question will show that it has two sides the Indian nights Association have t strong argument in the. fact that the removal would be a retrograde movement. The modern policy is toward severalty allotments and bringing the red men into contact with civilization. In going to the San Juan region the Utes would go to a^act which, though larger, is less fertile, and would not encourage them to till the soil. The promise of hunting privileges around the reservation appeals to the love of wilder life, while it appears that protests have already been made by neighboring settlers against such privileges. Besides, with the 872,000 called for by the removal treaty, the cost of the transfer of the new agency buildings and of a new military post, and the longer route for supplies, this project may prove expense. The building of irrigation works in the new reservation and tho extinguishing of mining claims now existing there might increase this item. Colorado cannot fairly object to having in'the extreme southwestern corner of her territory this one Indian reservation. All the other bands have been removed and 2,000 red men cannot be called more than her share as a western state. Older states, including Michigan. Wisconsin and Minnesota, have each three times as many on reservations; California has six times as many. Perhaps it might he well to ascertain whether the Indians would give up a part of their reservation and take severalty allotments on the remainder. If this should prove an acceptable substitute, and if the Utes are fitted for such allotments, the settlers would get a part of the land they covet, and the objei-tiufi to the reservation as a barrier to travel would also be in part removed. The government could afford, in that, ease, to make the Utes a still more liberal proposition than the one they have accepted. The Tollre Force* or Pari* Will lie Sup- lementod by Military Reinforcement* In Cane of Trouble—Municipal Election* Set Tor That Day Inerea*c* the Danger* of Disturbance—Anarchist* Arrested. PAIUS, April 20.—The recent dynamite outrages have caused a feeling among the people that, despite the reiterated assurances of the authorities that no trouble will occur on May day, the first of May will witness rioting and bloodshed not only in Paris, but also in various labor employing sections throughout the country. Though the authorities have repeatedly said that no trouble was anticipated in this city they are nevertheless taking the most extensive pro- cautions to repress any disorders on May day. On that day municipal elections will take place throughout France except in Paris, and it is feared that the crowds in towns where elections occur, excited by the partisan feeling, may perhaps fall an easy prey to the anarchist agitators who arc cortain to inveigh against the government and society as the occasion offers. In Paris, which city is governed by a special law in regard to municipal elections, no disturbance of a political nature will, of course, occur. The anarchists, however, are given to take advantage of any popular excitement to make trouble, and they may perhaps try to incite the city workingmen to riot. The police will attempt to prevent any speech-making on the streets and a large number of military will be held ready to aid them if required. In addition to the regular force stationed in Paris, the garrison has been reinforced. Six regiments of cavalry, sta by the city tioned by the city, will be held readiness to start at once for Paris cm receipt of tho signal. All public buildings and monuments will be guarded by soldiers, placed at intervals, while others will be concealed to prevent their direct contact with the crowd until it is necessary. The prefect of police in 1 an interview to-day said he felt confident flint "May day would pass quietly. The police made another raid upon I the houses occupied by anarchists today. ArreHtH at. llareelonu. BAUCI-'.LONA, April 211,—A raid was made upon anarchists to-day, and a large number of them were captured. Among those arrested was Vincintt kprenzo, an intimute frieud of Ka- vdchol and the leader of the Barcelona anarchists. Still Another Duel. NKW VOHK, April 20.—A dispatch from London says: Tho report of a duel between Milbunk and a French opponent is confirmed. Milbank's antagonist was Due I)c Morny, who was wounded. The quarrel which lead to the duel occurred in the restaurant of the Grand hotel, at Brussell's, and grew out of the Drayton-Borrowe trouble. Be Morny was wounded, i ported seriously. The report intimates that he will not recover. The duel took place about two miles from Ostend. DeMorny is said to have behaved with remarkable cool ncss, while Mllbank was as dollberaU as ever in the role which has grown familiar to him. It was a duel in earn est on both sides, although it is believed that Milbank did not mean to kill, but to have hit just where he intended. DeMorny, it is said, aimed for Milbank's head, evidently with the purpose of giving him a deadly shot, but missed by hardly more than a hair's breadth, while if he had aimed at the. body he would probably have at least wounded his antagonist. When he received a wound in tho thigh he wanted to have another shot, but as the wound was bleeding freely and appeared from the location to be dangerous, the seconds would not permit it. Hue Dc Morny has had a bad secret reputation and comes of bad stock. The DeMonys are weathy, having amassed a fortune during the empire, and tho present duke received an enormous lot with his wife, Charlotta, daughter of Gasman Blanco, ex-president and ex-dictator of Venezuela. ly harvested and stacked and threshed, and altogether is a most desirable crop that has come to stay for good. The remarks in your paper of Mr. Lehman of your county about the value of alfalfa for cattle and horses are very interesting reading. The experience of horsemen here, after thorough tests of fully five years, is no^ greatly in favor of alfalfa for horses, especially those liable to he driven hard all day. They need a more substantia! feed, and the urinary organs arc affected by long continued feeding. But for cattle, hogs and sheep it rcannot be surpassed. Major Moore's experience lias made him an enthusiast in favor of alfalfa for cattle, lie transferred his herds to this county from Meade county, where they never had any feed but buffalo and wild grass. The change to alfalfa was most surprising, ana the daily gaih was apparent. The major intends to feed largely of this grass hereafter, and expects to raise herds that cannot be surpassed any where. Mr. Lehman cannot overdo the raising of alfalfa in Ueno county or anywhere else in Kansas. Three cuttings a season (four with irrigation), averaging one and one-half tons each cutting per acre, is the rule in Finney county. One of these is a seed crop,which ought to yield five bushels to the acre, worth 83.00 a bushel here, and Sil.OO in Denver, Col., in favorable years. Alfalfa is the golden crop for this region, and may be depended on for a net yield of at least 820.00 an acre, one year with another, without any fear of failure. Isn't that good enough'.' Mr. A. S. Thomas, a business man of Chicago, came here last September scarcely able, to walk, looking jaundiced and cadaverous—ready for the, grave. He went back homo last Monday, after passing the winter in Kansas and Colorado, a big, hearty man, ready to go to work again, having gained thirty-seven pounds. This is the country for consumptive invalids, if they are not, too far gone, and will only stay here long enough. The United States experimental farm excited the enthusiastic praises of the eastern delegation. A field of ji -ye was pronounced to he a regular honey. Kvcry grain seemed to have sprouted and grown its level best, and a straight edge on the top would have touched almost every stalk, and this in the Great American Desert, where it was declared that seed dropped in the dusty ground would not sprout but would blow away. You who are not by any means young, will yet live to see this glorious region the garden of Kansas. Wedding Delia nt Ureat llend.

Alfalfa is al ready knee high and is growing with great thrift—many herds already being pastured on it. Last Wednesday was a field day for the steam plow man, a distinguished delegation of railroad and outside eel ebrities having come from Topeka and Kansas City to inspect the working of the first steam plow ever operated in Kansas. The day was chilly and un comfortable, but the enthusiasm of the crowd keptevorybody warm, and tht reports given were of the most encour aging character. Messrs. F. A. Waugh of the Topeka Capital, C. S. Annsby of Atchison, G. \V. Metsou of Larned, G. M. Hoover of Dodge City, II. H. Pierce, Win. Lescuer, J. S. Soule, of the Kan sas Farmer, and S. W. Winn of Kansas City, were In the party.

CAMIIUIUIII'., April 29.—The discovery that her lover had a wooden leg led Maggie Williams to dismiss William E. Cunningham, to whom sho was betrothed. The engagement was broken last night, the young woman upbraiding her lover for the deception he had practiced upon her. This morning Cunningham visited 25 Portsmouth street, where Maggie was employed as a domestic, and asked • to shake hands and make up. Maggie refused to be reconciled to the wooden leg and again repulsed him. Then Cunningham drew a revolver and fired two shots at his sweetheart, one bullet taking effect in her left temple and the other over the heart. Cunningham then placed the revolver at his own head and fired. Tho shot did not kill him und the man fired again, the bullet passing just over the heart. Ho fell across the body of the girl and awaited death. The police summoned an ambulance and hurried the victims of the tragedy to the hospital. The girl died before reaching the institution. Cunningham Is alive, but is mortally wounded. He would say nothing about the matter save that the woman was killed by getting in the way while he was trying to commit suicide. Civil Mervlee Reform.
