Tlu: Indian Delegation.
St. Louis, September 30.—Satanta,
chief of the Kiowa Indians, and Big Tree,
another notablo chief of the same tribe,
who have been temporarily released from
the Texas prison, arrived here to-day in
custody, and were taken to the Everett
House, where the other Indians were stop
During the day a council was helu.
The meeting of Satanta and Big Tree was
one of the most atiecting scenes in Indian
history. The ordinary stoicism of the
race gave way entirely and they lingged
and kissed each other and cried like chil
Satanta made a speech, in which he
said that lie felt like one risen from the
dead. He referred to the talk ho Lad
had with Gov. Davis, of Texas, who told
him he must work hard for peace and in
fluence his people. If he did this, he
should be released. He wanted his people
and all other Indians to be at peace with
the whites—to let Texas alone and not go
on the war path.
It is not intended to take Satanta and
Big Tree to Washington, hut they will
probably be placed in the custody of the
United States Marshal to-morrow and held
subject to orders from Washington.
There is a strong desire on the part of
the Indians that Satanta be pardoned, and
probably if he is, almost any desired terms
can be made with them.
Important Revenue Decision.
Washington, September 30.—The act
ing Commissioner of Internal Revenue de
cides, that on and after October the Ist,
1872, no stamps will be required upon
checks, drafts and orders, except such as
are drawn at sight, or on demand, upon
banks, bankers and trust companies. Ho
also decides, that on and after that date, no
stamps are necessary upon foreign bills of
The acting Commissioner of Internal
Revenue, in view of the ambiguity of a
portion of section 13, of the act of June
6th, 1872, imposing special taxes on deal
ers in malt liquors, and in view of the sup
posed intention of Congress have decided
that wholesale and retail liquor dealers
may continue to sell malt liquors, under
their special tax receipts as such, without
being assessed as malt liquor dealers, and
that the collection of taxes assessed con
trary to that construction, shall be sus
pended until the question can be brought
before Congress. Persons who sell only
malt liquors, are liable only to the special
taxes of twenty or fifty dollars, as they are
wholesale or retail dealers in mult liquors.

This question is propounded with the con 11
