Kwrf Coaoalr abla Mae oar Wasiunoton Dec 19— Ex-Senator Dawes who waa a member of the commission appointed to negotiate with the fire civilized tribe of Indian to secure a better government for the Indian territory appeared before the house judiciary committee yesterday to argue in behalf of legit-lation to bring about that end Mr Dawes give a dark picture of the condition of affaire now in the Indian territory The country i really in the hands of the white oligarchy ' The real ludiana” Mr Dawes says “live In the aVerile timber country and eke out an existence far from the whites and all civilizing influences The mountain and thicket along the water courses afford a refuge and abiding place for criminals and outlaws whence they sally in their foray im the surround ng country and states and to which they return when pursued The immunity thus afforded from arrest aud punishment encourage lawlessness aud only the presence of large bodies of armed men or the settlement of the country can extirpate this evil “Indians living in the woods are the admission of their wisest men less civilized and fit for citizenship than they were twenty years ago Theirs is a case of arrested progress and it is believed that ' ue only hope of civilizing them is to induce them to settle on the fertile lar Is rent portion to the white tn'ngle freely with them attending the same churches and schools” Mr Dawes said that tle 1 -Trier op-pose-1 at all times by those 1 authority iu the tnhes and assuming to speak for them as to any change in existing conditions is what they claim to be “the truly situation" They mean by this term that the United Meres is neder treaty obligations not to interfere In their internal policy but nas guaranteed to them self-government s id absolute exclusion of while citizens from any abode among them that the United Mates Is bound to isolate them absolutely While this was substantially the original governing idea in establishing the five tribes in the Indian Territory these tribes were to hold this territory for the use and enjoyment of ail Indians belonging to their respective tribes so that every Indian as is expressed In some of the treaties “shall have an equal right with every other Indian in each and every p rtion of the territory" and the further stipulation that their laws shall not conflict w itb the constitution of the United States “These executory provisions have not been observed by either side The executory conditions contained in the treaties have become impossible of execution It is no longer possible fir-the United Mates lo keep its citizens out of the territory Nor is it now possible for the Indians to secure to each individual Indian his full enjoyment in common with other Indians of the common property of the territory These executory conditions are not only impossible of execution but have ceased to be applicable or desirable It has been demonstrated that isolation is an impossibility and that if possible it could never result in the elevation or civilization of the Indian It has been uade clear that under its oerations imperfectly as it has been carried out its effect has been to retard rather thaa to promote civilization to impair rather than strengthen the observance of law ami order snd regard for human life and rights nr the protection or promotion of a virtuous life “To such a degree has this sad deter oration become evident that to-dav a most deplorable and dangerous condition of affairs exists in the territory causing widespread alarm and demanding most a--tons cons deration AU the functions of the sir called governments of these five tribes have become powerless to protect the life or property rights of the citizens The courts of justice have become helpless and paralyzed Vi denee robbery and murder are almost of daily occurrence and no effective measures of restraint or punishment are put forth to suppress crime Within the territory of one of tnese triWs there were fifty-three murders during the month of September and the first twenty-four days of OctoWr and not a single person brought to trial "In every respect the present condition of affairs demonstrates tile permission to govern themselves under the const tution of the United Mates which was orig tially embraced in ttie treaty lias proven s failure So likewise lias the provision that requires the I nited State! so exclude white citizens from the territory" Mr Dawes therefore thought that the government should consuier the treaties nugatory to such an extent as is necessary to tiring alxiut a responsible and effective government in tiie territory The committees seemed favorably impressed with Mr Duwes' argument Mure lurAi Aglut Tijlor Washington Dec l't —Additional charges against I' 11 J

Be Daelarae SS Bill 1 a taapmUM Thai Barmoalaa Fairly Wall With tha Vlawa af haarly All — Aa- war Qaaatlosa Vat by Maaa-hare— Mr Walkar laada the Oppoaltloa Washington Dec 19— Tha discussion on tbe Carllale currency bill began in tbe house yesterday but tha opening of tba debate was a disap-pt-’ntmenL It lacked both spirit and interest and was devoid of sensational features Mr Welker of Massachusetts gave notice of a substitute he would offer for the bill Mr fipringer of Illinois opened the debate in favor of the bill Tbe great Importance of the pending measure he began could not be more effectively emphasized than by referring to tha report of the comptroller of tbe currency which showed that last year there were over 300(1000 depositors In national banks having a capital stock aggregating 11809000-Ooo their deposits amounting to 0000001 The committee had given the subject the most careful consideration It had carefully examined tb recommendations of tbe president and tb secretary of the treasury and had railed before It tome of the ablest fiuaDciers in the country and the result had been the presentation of the pending measure as a measure of boancial reform He did not pretend to say that the bill represented views of individual members of the committee It waa a compromise and as such harmonized fairly the views of alL He then detailed at length the Intention of the bill reviewing much of the grovnd covered in his report already made publio Mr fiickiea of New York Interrupted Mr fipringer to ask him hew he reconciled the second and fifth sections of the bill The second provided thst noteholders should have a first lien on the assets of tbe bank issuing them while the fifth gave to the association of banki contributing to the safety fund a first lien on the assets Mr fipringer replied thst the proposed act gave to the billholdera the first lien on the assets and the banking association tha first lien on tbe remaining assets ‘ Hut the word remaining' is not in the fifth section” said Mr fiickiea "That will be the effect of the law" remarked Mr fipringer "It is not law yet" retorted Mr fiickiea sententiously “because yon must vote it through first" Mr fipringer finally admitted that the word 'remainin'?' should have Wen lncororated in tbe fifth section but said this was ona of the slight defects of the bill that could readily be corrected “Iu case of panic If half of the banks In this proposed system” inquired Mr Mahon of I'enosylvanla “should fail would the other half be assessed to redeem the failed bsuk notes?" ' Certainly" "T hat is the solvent banki would be bankrupted to aid the insolvent?” “There would be no such result" replied Mr fipringer “If all tLe batiks should fail under thia system the note holders would be secure” Iu answer to an inquiry by Mr Simpson Mr fipringer admitted that time alone could determine the amount of circulation which would be taken out undrr any law but that as far as the retirement of the legal tenders ws concerned for every dollar deposited in the treasury by the banks t: in circulating notes would be issued Mr Hland of Missouri gave notice that he would move to strike out all after the enactiug clause in the bill and substitute therefor a measure for a currency system based on coin and coin notes This plan does not interfere with the existing national tank system but instead of allowing banks to issue notes as the Carlisle plan proposes he proposes that the government Issue the notes calling them coin notes they to be redeemed in gold and silver com and the govern men t to coin both metals In the course of his speech Mr M alker of Massachusetts vs he opened for the opposition claimed for himself the credit of alone having arouse) the country to I realization of bad financial conditions It was his work only he said that had built up tbe demand fur a change lie spoke vigorously in favor of his substitute and against Mr Carlisle's plan To all interruptions he gave short and sometimes rude answers He said that tbe compulsory requirement of the Carlisle bill for tbe sale of tbe government bonds by the national banks would be disastrous He favored the divorce of the treasury from the banking business it had Wen compelled to da Mr Hall of Missouri also a member of too committee on banking and currency who followed Mr Walker contended that the Carlisle bill war opposed by the national banks because they preferred the Baltimore plan xvhy? Because in the Baltimore pian tbe government stood behind the notes issued and in the Carlisle bill the banks themselves were respi nsible for the notes lie insisted that every bank official summoned Wfore tbe committee had Wen forced to admit when cornered that currency issued under the Carlisle bill would be entirely safe They had opposed the bill on account of tne fifth section which had made the banks solely responsible for theii issues lie also repudiated the state-uieuls thal this bill had Wen prepared iu haste As tne conclusion ol Mr Hall's speech the committee rose Mr Henderson of North Carolina reported the postotfiee appropriation bill and then at 313 jx m the bouse adjourned A TALK ABOUT HUES An Inmate of ths Stii' w a'er ( !
