Parly to Export Mount SL EHit Philadelphia, May 18.—An expedition lefInhere last evening that has for its object the exploration of the country round about Mount St.: Elias, Alaska, and possibly the ascent of that m&un- tain, which for a lonsr time was considered the hisrhest in America. Its exploration la particularly interesting: because it lies in tho disputed territory between the United States and the British possessions in Xorth America. All attempts to ascend It have hitherto failed. . ' TRIBUNE BUREAU. i Post Building, Pennsylvania Ave., v. Washington, D. C., May IS. ) Tho Senate has again demonstrated its willingness to open the Uncompahgre mineral lands to settlement. The conferees upon the Indian appropriation biJJ met today to discuss this, the last question in issue among them. Senator Cannon appeared before them and made another appeal in behalf of opening the asphaltum and other lands in the Uncompahgre reservation. The result • was that the conferees agreed to recommend to their respective houaes a substitute amendment t'or tho Senate amendment, and the House conferees will contrive on. Thursday to bring the House to agree to Its terms. Later In the day the Senate agreed to the amendment, which is as follows "The Secretary of the Interior Is hereby directed to at once allot agricultural lands in severally to the Uncompahgre Utc Indians now located upon or belonging to the Uncompahgre Indian reservation in Utah, said allotments to be upon the Uncompahgre and Uintah reservations, or elsewhere In said State. "That all the lands of the said Uncompahgre reservation not heretofore allotted In severally,to said Uncompahgre Utes shall, on and after the 1st day of April, 1S9S, be open for location and entry under all the land laws of the United States," NOT THROUGH THE HOUSE. This amendment, it will be noticed, does not give immediate opening- of the gllsonite lands, as did the proposition voted down in the House yesterday, but Is the best proposition that could possibly be made, and is a great concession on the part of the House conferees to the Senate. Whether It will be accepted by the House or not is a question. Judging from the tenor of the remarks upon the floor yesterday and on previous days, no proposition not carrying the anti-trust provision can possibly pass that body.' The gfensral opinion .expressed today by members of both houses of Congress is that the proposition submitted yesterday by Representative- Sherman, providing for a royalty of 75 cents per ton and the provision 1 of one mining claim for ' each man, ought to have been passed. MR. KING'S. POSITION. Representative King has been criti- cised by some of his fellow members for taking the position he did, the belief being that If he had not .made the fight against the compromise amendment, it would have gone through. Mr. King said this eveilng that he did not think the proposition could have received the sanction of the House, as most of those Democrats who voted with him were against royalty. "tt would have been a great calamity," said Mr. .Kins: to your correspondent, "if the Senate amendment had gone through yesterday. The charge of 75 cents per ton was of course .mmaterlal, but I fought for the principle. If it had gone through, within six months bills would be introduced to repeal our present system of mineral and laws, which have so greatly bulld- H! up the West, I would rather the proposition should fall than yield in my position. J .know my associates do not 'eel that way, as they think it would be better, to yield ".than to Insist upon a free |0pening, -with the chances of osing any opening whatever for the •resent. However, if the HOUS.G reuses to agree to the amendment igreed upon today by the conferees, I vlll then attempt to agree- uent to the former report." PATENTS ISSUED.

Ho was elected to the Forty-ninth Congress as a Republican, defeating his opponent by a large plurality. He was appointed Dintrict Judge on September 38, 1SD1. Mr. Corbett's Case Presented, Washington, May IS.—The Senate Committee on Privileges and Elections today heard an argument by Attorney Woods of Portland. Or., in support of the claim of Hon. H. W. Corbett to a seat in the Senate as successor to Senator Mitchell, under the appointment of the Governor of Oregon, but the committee took no action. Mr. Woods contended that the appointment was valid., because there had been no session of the Oregon Legislature. He held that failure to organize Die Legislature was equivalent to holding no session, and that Cor this reason there had been an interregnum. He also argued that it was the intention of the framers of the Federal Constitution that a State of the Union should be at nil times represented in the Senate—that, as he expressed It, the sovereign States should ever be represented by their embassadors in the Senate. The committee expect tn pass finally upon Mr. Corbett's case at their next weekly meeting:. Prosecutions of Sheepmen, Dropped. Washington, May IS.—Following the recommendation of Commissioner Herman of the General Land Office, the Attorney-General has .instructed the United States' District Attorney for Oregon to suspend for the present the les-al proceedings pending 1 in that dis- Irict growing out of sheep-pasturing within the limits of the Cascade range forest reserve. The Commissioner of the Land Office has submitted to the Secretary of the Interior an elaborate statement showing- the facts regarding the Cascade forest reserve in Oregon, reciting its, history from its Inception to the present, and the legislation in Congress as to ali forest reservations. -In this statement the Commissioner recommends that the former order .of the department forbidding pasturing, on the reserve be revoked entirely, or so modi- tied as to permit pasturing under regulations to be prescribed by the depart-, meat. Trouble in G-etting- Grain. Ships. Washing-ton, May IS.—The Navy department has had so much trouble in securing ships to carry th& contributions of grain from this country to India that it-riow has under consideration the propriety of appealing to Congress to amend the resolution under which it is proceeding. That resolution- requires the grain to be carried in an American vessel. It happens that there are very few'American, steamers: outside of the regrular lines, a/nd the department is unable to comply with the terms of the act unless it turns to- a sailing: vessel. Such a ship could not reach^Bombay in much less than three and a half months, by which'.time- the famine sufferers for whom the intended mig-ht be expected to be either' starved to death or in, possession c-f" new crops of rice. Therefore, unless art American steamer can be procured at New York-within the next,few days it is probable Congress will'be asked to remove the 1 injunction, and r allO;w the REQUISITIONS REFUSED Barton and Graves will Not be Brought Back.

Y., May 18.—Utah will not get Clarence Barton and Leon Graves, who are under arrest in New York city, charged with the theft of $5200 from the Utah Loan and Trust company at Ogden. Graves is now in. the Tombs, and Barton is at Bellevue hospital, ill. The Ogcfen authorities wired back for requisition papers and they- were sent on, and today they were, presented to Gov. Black to surrender the prisoners to the Utah authorities. The Governor, after hearing the evidence, with Judge Joyce, his pardon clerk, decided that the requisition papers were insufficient to surrender the prisoners. Scott & Battle, New York attorneys, represented Graves and Barton, and they immediately left for New York to begin habeas corpus proceedings for the release of the prisoners, . CHARGES NOT POSITIVE. . Judge Joyce said that the trouble with the requisition., papers wzft that were not positive, one count charging that they actually stole the money and 'another that stolen money. they only received the He said that the Governor could not allow people taken out of the State on knowledge so imperfect. ' The attorneys for the prisoners hinted at a conspiracy against the young men, declaring that they were willing to g-q back .to Ogden to stand trial, but they refused to go under arrest. ..The New York District Attorney probably, will oppose habeas corpus proceedings. •Both .young men say that they are Innocent, but Chief of Police Davenport says,-.that Graves made a confession of/ him. 1 ..- Graves, however, de- lites this. ' :l £%s,-.-, ing- all thf evidence- that could be produced against them in court here. At least evidence was produced and after hearing it. and without taking 1 the matter under advisement Gov. Black Immediately discharged tho boys. The telegrams received, yesterday, it is said, state that in disehargrinjr them from custody the County Attorney and. the Utah State officials were unmercifully scored for granting or asking- requisition papers on. evidence- which appeared so- flimsy and so inadequate on so grave a charge. The- Governor is reported to have said there was a to-tal lack of evidence connecting- them with the crim-e- and that the papers failed to show any specific crime committed. At the hearing- the two boys satisfactorily accounted for all the money they had spent during- their absence from Ogrden, and the stories of tho money being: on deposit in an Iowa, bank and also ot' the wild escapades of Barton in Florida, wore shown to have been, concocted without foundation in fact. Neither of the boys were shown to be on the route as published, and neither had $1000 in money. It was stated yesterday, that as soon a.s the boys collect such evidence as they have been advised to get by their attorneys here and there, that: th<?y will return to Ogrden accompanied by INDEX AND BULLETIN.

Counsel for the Governor of UtaJx stated, after it had beeai announced that Gov. Black had refused the requisition, that it was most 'unois-nal' for the Governor of one State not to give a hearing -on a requisition of another Governor, even if he had decided to refuse,the requisition. It was especially unusual in this case,'because the* .Governor of Utah had made a- persons-l appeal for the- requisition, inasmuch as he wag one of the heaviest stockhold'- ers in the Loan and Trust association. Counsel further stated that the pardon clerk refused to allow "the case to go before the Governor simply because he was of the opinion that the moving papers were defective. GOV. WELLS'S DENIAL. . Gov. Wells, when Informed last night of the statement in the above dispatch, that he had made a personal appeal to Gov. • Black, stated .-that, it wa«-abso- lutely'untrue.'

[TRIBUNE SPECIAL.] May "IS.—Yesterday noon word was received-in Dr. M. N. Graves .and Charles H. Baa'ton,. that young.-,Leon Graves and Clarence ^ax- ton had been discharged from custody 'after a-hearing before Goy. Black of New York at Albany, the hearing having: been on the merits of the case, as is 'allowable in that State. It will b$ remembei-ed that; some days ago'it was announced, in The Tribune that the Utah Loan.- and T^Ust, company's bank had been robbed in> Feb- i;uary or before of about $6000, and-that Chief of Police Davenport had been sent East by "the hank, to locate young Graves and Barton, who were suspected of the crime. Later came the word bv Associated,, Press from, New York that young Bartore had been apprehended- in -New 'York, and along -with the statement eamo a story, of hds alleged'doings since leaving:'Ogden, his Oficksonviue. Fla., ', 'and his marriage. •^Still later' came the story o-fv.young Gr-avea's arrest the, issuing of requisition pape-rs, the sending on of additional papers in the~custody of Detective Fender', and tho other matters oon- neated with the ca«e. When the requisition' pap*rs» came before-Gov. Black he set a day,' for hearing on May llth, th& hearing being: Bubsequently adjourned until yesterday.

It J» .understood, that the' evidence was sent 3 from, *ert, iu the shape of affidavits cow- of a fiasco, and it was said yesterday that all who knew the- inside of the story predicted tliat from the- start, although probably not in that way or so soon. Yesterday afternoon Mrs. Dr. Graves sent the following- telegram to Gov. Black: Gov. Black, Albany, K. T.:—A mother's inS 1( S 11as f reward for your rlfflucous jua^meait. Lieoiis mother, MRS. .U N.

In speaking- of this nmtter a gentleman said yesterday'that this.p^o- ce-edm-g: had already cost the State and the county about $3000. and oug-ht to £•*; 1 , €sson ' t( > the- people not to place officials in office who, as had be^-n intimated would send officers thousands ot miles after innocent parties as the result of what looked like a conspiracy, putting-, the county and State to an enormous expense. * * * The air was full of rumors yesterday afternoon of some very sensational developments to come within the next day or two, and these rumors were to the effect that Dr. Graves would take the matter in hand and that the end of the case was not yet Dr. Graves was seen yesterday and while not willing: to talk at length upon the facts In the case, stated that a telegram had been received by him stating: the facts in the matter, and that he would be gruided largely In his future course by the advice of his attorneys. While not showing any vindictiveness, he announced his determination to punish those whom he believed had been engaged in a foul conspiracy to the full extent of the law He refuged to state what course he would pursue, but he is certainly a man who Is fully equipped ^o take care of himself and his family where their interests are concerned. It was stated yesterday that Cashier "West had suspected other parties of the robbery before having suspected Graves and Barton, but had done nothing 1 as to. the others -suspected; It was also stated as-a positive: fact that, while Graves and Barton left Ogden December 26, 1S96, the shortage was not known for more than two months afterward,- a.nd under that statement of fact it would doubtless be exceedingly difficult to say when the money was taken. * • • Mr. Charles. H. Barton, teller of the bank, and brother of Clarence Barton, was seen. He had received the same news and said-that his brother Clarence '"would return to Ogden very soon to clear up this matter. What would be done then' he said he did not know. Concerning his brother's wife. She is a college graduate of good family, of education and refinement and not as she has-been described in the New Y.ork dispatches. Cashier West of the bank said last evening that he had received no word from- New .York. He also said that if the hearing-.was had yesterday it certainly was an injustice, for. the amended papers and the evidential matter had been delayed and would not reach Albany until, this morning. On request of the bank's attorney, who stated that G-pv. Black had objected to the form of the first papers, a new set of requisition papers, had been prepared,, together with the evidence- in the case, and .forwarded. to Albany Saturday morning last. The Attorney-General had; promised'to telegraph Gov. Black Monday, and he supposed that on that telegram the, hearing would be postponed-until" today. The Governor of New York found* fault with the information sent forward,'because it contained two counts, stating that it was equivalent to.-the. charge being made "on information and belief." Why Gov. Black had -not postponed the hearing he could-not",understand, especially in such an important case. In all that he had-done in the case'Mr. West said he- had acted in- good faith and on the advice of attorneys. ; He said he had letters and telegrams and facts in, his possession which gave him ample Around---on ' which" to justify him in making - charges', against the boys,' which he could not divulge at the present time, but which could be produced when necessary.
