As tbe woman failed to thow up the commenced err- ing, conductor, cot knowing what to do with them, asked Mr. J. M. Elliott of this place to take charge of them, which he ktndlv did, and will ste after them until something further is ascertained. Thor were taken to tbe hotel near tbe depot kept bv W. H.

From conversation with tha boys tbe re- porter learned that the note did not refer to them, but to children of Mre. Mulhal- len's, who they said were to Kansas City. It seems that thcr were left with Mrs. Mulhallen, their aunt, by their mother, and that Mrs, Mnlhallen had enough chil- dren of her own and ho put these two on the train to send to-1'aria. They had a small sachcl of clothing with them. PRESIDENT AT DEER PARK. He K e.iel Dnj and Walks With nit Vonng Hopeful. DEEH PAUK, Md., Sept.

WASHINGTON, Sept The opinion of Attorney-general Miller. In tho matter of the alleged misappropriation of money paid tp delegates (if tho Creek naliou on account of the Oklahoma cession was made pubi'.d yesterday. Tho facta la tho case are us follows: Ia pursuance of a treaty onterod into between the government nnd the Creek nation congress made an ap- propriation by the act of March for tho payment of to the Creole na- tion for the release of their title to certain land, and by an act approved March 2 in pursuance of a similar treaty made a aome- wliat smaller appropriation for a like pur- chase from tha Semiuoles. The questions Involved aro substantially the same in both CBBOS. It will therefore bo sufficient to refer to the law as applicable to the Creek appro priation. The act making tho appropriation the Creek purchase provides that 000 of the purchase price shall be made a permanent fund bearings per cent interest, and that the remaining shall paid to the treasurer of the Creek nation, "or to such person as shall bo duly author- ized to receive the same at snoh time and in aiich turns as shall be directed liy the na- tional council of aald nation." As a mat- ter of fact it ii represented to theattoruey- eeneral, and be assumes It to ba true, that about of this (mailer sum of money was uwd in a compromise and payment of a note of about twice tbat amount held bv bank in Arkanus, and that tbe great- er part of tbe balance wa> appropriated ia the payment of feea to persona who claimed to have rendered In forwarding the treaty and procuring the appropriation, etc. On- behalf of certain members of the Creek nation It is claimed that theee especially of the attor- ney feee, were a fraud anon the rigkta ofthe people of the nation and in violation of the which prorldee that no agree- ment shall be made by any pemon with anr tribe or Individual tudiani not cltlzent ot the United Statee for tbe pay- ment of any money In eonaideratlon of aervloee rendered or to be rendered, nnleae tbe ume la made in writing and receives the approval of the commluilODer of Indian affaire and the secretary of the Interior, In the matter under contideration it it con- ceded that there wu no contract complying with tbe ttatutt. Another section for ..the recoverv of moneys paid In viola- tion thereof. I? is claimed by tlioee wiio have received thli money that the language of bectlon 4 of the act of il'-.ich 1, ISbK, a purpose on the part of conKrrne to put this smaller sum at the diapooal of the Creek council for such as to that body may fit. The attorney-general this as a correct construction of the act, and that in tbui dividing the appropriation Into two funds, making a permanent m- vustmtnt of one and putting the other at th. disposal of the Creek council, It waa tho Intention of congress that that body should have full authority to deal with it iu its discretion. After the treaty wac made both houses of the Creet council passed acts au- thorizing the payment of the moneys by the United States to certain delegates who received It, and it has not beeu ques- tioned that tho payments were made to the proper partiM. The attorney-general says that he does not see that he is authorized to disregard tbe discretion plainly granted to the Creek council fn the disposition of these funds, or to attempt a recovery thereof. Ou Iwhalf of those who have received theso moneys it is insisted tlmt the five civilized tribes, in which are included tho Creeks aud the Sominoles, stand upon a -different footing from the uncivilized tribes, and therefore the statute docs not apply to them. In this view tho attorney-general ia inclined to share. His right to briiiM an action to re- cover the moneys so paid be so doubt- ful that he has determined not to do so. If these people choose, he says, they can use the name of the Tnited States to recover whatever rights they may believe them- selves deprived of, without the interposi- tion of the attorney-general. In concluding the opinion the attorney- general says that he will not, however, at- tempt to control the action of the district attorney, who may conclude that It is his duty to have this matter investigated by the grand jury, lie is aimoly determined that he, aa attorney-general, will not un- dertake this investigation. He says that be has made no exbreasion to the merits of the claim on one side or ou the other. This ho deems to be the proper course, in view of the fact that ho has no knowledge of the circumstancea except by assertlug on one side or the other. For onysie Tntr. poiiiliorly winK.i.

BOSTOX, Mass., Sept. street was busy witli Atchisoa yesterday, and some in- teresting gossip regarding tho future oi Uio system wns heard. Messrs, I.ibby, Abbott, O. W. Peabody and Baring have been ap- ft committee to consider the brond question of uuancial and general reorgani- zation. T.iey have been studying the ques- tion of earning power and trying to increase :t. Some fruits of their labor are seen and others nro to appear. Tha (treat problem before thorn is to bring to 0011 of not earnings Into harmnny with of charges. If the onrnings will not to the level of tho charges she latter muswje mnde to meet tho former. It is not quilo certain yet what advances the earn- ings may make, hut it is believed to be evi- dent to the ronunitteo that fixed charges will havo to bo reduced iu some way. Two schemes have been advanced, either or of which may bo adopted. It Is proposed cither to issue a bond or to issuo extra slock. If the first is considered tho moro feasible plan. 11 blanket boml to the amount of paying 4 pur cent In- tercut and covering the entire system, will be laancd, but tho r.mount will depend upon tho permanent deficiency that exists be- twoeu Iho earnings and tho expenses. It is tho general Impression, however that no rflnlca! policy will ba adopted before tho ginning of tho year. He Delayed the Kail. Toi., M'nnhal ,f. K.

Afttii1 saying that democrat.-) iu Washington aud New Vork and many republicans there believe that Campbell will elected, JoUuson said in wply to tho question, Will a demoorutic logislature mean John 11.

Mr. >r.cLeau to me over and. over just what he has frequently said iu public, that he was not a caudiu_te for tbo senator- ship and would uot be under any circum- stance. I was with him In New York last Tuesday, aud when I directed his attention to paragraph connecting his name with the senatorship he told me that he didn't flatter bimsolf that tho pconle of Ohio were yearniiiE for him, but bo added test if the legislature should he democratic by an overwhelming majority and he could gen the eexiatorship for the mere asking he would not have it. I have been with Mr. McLean for ten years, and iu the course of my work I hnvo been frequently In confidential relations to him aud he .has never deceived me. If ho were a candidate for the senate I know that he would not take the trouble to give a contrary story. There would be no sense in his doing so, Yon may bet your last dollar that J.
