Mr. Sidney Clarke, by unanimous consent, submitted the following preamble and resolution; which were read, considered, and agreed to, viz:

Whereas by the provisions of a treaty between the United States with the tribe of Sac and Fox Indians of the Mississippi, proclaimed October 14, 1868, it is provided that certain lands known as “trust lands” should "immediately upon the ratification of this treaty become the property of the United States," and should be “open to entry and settlement,” and should be subject to all the laws and regulations of the General Land Office, the same as other public lands, provided that said lands shall be subject to sale in tracts of not exceeding 160 acres to any one person and at a price not less than $1 50 per acre;" and whereas nearly four months' time has elapsed since the promulgation of said treaty, and the said trust lands have not yet been offered for sale; and whereas, in consequence of this delay, a large number of persons desirous of purchasing said lands for the purpose of settlement and improvement are unable so to do, and as doubt and uncertainty exist in relation to the occupancy of said lands, thereby greatly prejudicing the interests both of the Indians and settlers; and whereas it is clearly within the intent of the provisions of said treaty that the trust lands should be immediately opened to actual settlement and sale at the land office in Topeka, Kansas: Therefore,

Resolved, That the Secretary of the Interior is hereby requested imme. (liately to inform the House why said trust lands have not been offered for sale as contemplated by the treaty, and also as to the number of acres thereof.

I. A letter from the Secretary of the Treasury, in answer to a resolution of the House of the 9th instant, transmitting regulations, decisions, &c., relative to the execution of the internal revenue law of July 20, 1868; which was referred to the Committee of Ways and Means.
