Senator Nelson has been working to get the Mille Lacs lands for the' white settlers, but it appears that the department is not .en-, couraging his efforts, and has made reports that throw great difficulties in the way of getting any legislation that will help the settlers .get 'tire land. When Nelson appeared before the senate com mlttee on public lands in the interest of hi$ bill to aid the settlers, the committee requested the Interior department for information in the matter. The- ''department then had a report made as to the former rulings, treaties and laws, and he-conclusions reached -in the reports were strongly against1:'', the settlers.' A part of the report was as follows: "It clearly appears that since the passing of the act of July 3, 1894, said lands have .not been open to settlement, and any persons who have gone there for such purpose are trespassers, and can have no right, legal or equitable, as aga...

Daring Some doubt-having been expressed in the Union fleet as to the size of the pas­ sage thus opened ip the obstructions, Lieutenant Caldwell started up the river in a rowboat on the night of the 23d to reconnoiter. After a pull of several miles the lieutenant saw a large fire on the bank lighting up tho scene around the obstructions. Crossing to the oppo­ site bank, under tho cover of the bushes and trees, tho boat was pushed on to within 100 yards of the obstructions. The party was then under the walls of Fort Jackson, so near that the voices of the soldiers of the garrison could be heard. From that point Lieutenant Cald­ well could see that tho passage was still clear, but to make doubly sure he pro­ ceeded to tho gap, pulling across a belt of light in full view of the enemy. A heavy load line was then thrown out and soundings taken to prove that their were no submarine obstructions, and the boat drifted back to the fleet. Fnrravut...
