change, which was so marked yesterday,
mado further progress today, and the re
turning dullness, indicating that no ma

more belling by the bears. The tone of the
market was weaker than it has been since
Saturday morning, resulting iu many
marked looses for the day.
The bears were more acgressive than
usual on a market of the caliber displayed

tactics spreading reports reliecting upon
the financial standing of prominent firms

BlMAttCK, N. D., Nov. IS. A dispatch
trom Mandan says that the citizens held a

tection against the Sioux Indians. A tele
gram was sent to Governor Miller asking

TROOPS ORDERED OUT.
Omaiia, Neb., Nov. 18L Troops from
Fort Omaha, Fort Robinson, Fort Nio
brara. Neb., and a pack train from Fort
Russell. Wyo., have been ordered out to
hold the Indians in check at the Pine
Ridge and and Rosebud agencies on the
Dakota frontier. They will be in motion
OMAHA, Neb., Nov. 18. Telegrams
poured into the array and into the news
paper offices today with bulletins about
the Indian scare. At the army offices they
were made light of and it was as
serted that the Indians were only out on a
hunt. It was 6tated that two reliable
Brule Indians, now in the city, bad stated
to the army officers that there was no
Messiah crazo among the Indians just
north of the Nebraska line.
Private" advices from Valentine give a
different origin than the Messiah craze to
the Indian uneasiness. Since August the
Indians of Rosebud have been restless,
claiming that the agent was not giving
them a square deal on supplies. A. few
days ago three families living ten miles
northwest of Valentine moved away sim
ultaneously. Their neighbors sougiit to
convince them that there was no danger,
but they had heard the complaints about
the agent and they were bound to go, and
The following dipatches havo been re
ceived: "Valektixe. Neb., Nov. 18. The garri

EXCITEMENT AT MANDAN.
Minneapolis. Minn.. Nov. 18. The
Triimne's Mandan, N. D., special says:
"Every house in town is full to overflow

tricts. Tne most intense excitement pre-
vails in the country. Settlers nre prepared

cause of their queer actions lately. Several
families came in today on foot, a distance
of twenty miles and over, too poor to own

exists, owing to the receipt of 300 guns to
day from the state government, and the
fact that a company of soldiers will bo

"Tonight there are :i00 Indians in the

Chicago. Nov. 18. Referring to tho As
sociated Press dispatch to night, regard
ing the movements of large bodies of
troops in the department of the Platte,
and their concentration at points adjacent
to the Pine Ridge agency, Gen Miles said:
"Tho newspapers really ought not to
publish that sort of news, for it will Do in
the Indian camps iu less than tweuty-four
hours, taken there by runners. There is
really nothing in this, except that tho
troops are sent to the vicinity of the res
ervation to prevent, if possible, any depre
dations, and toencourage the loyal element
among the Indians, if any, and also to pro
tect the agencies, which report the Indians
as turbulent and past control.
"It was hoped that this excitement
might pass without serious trouble, and
up to tin's time no Innians have loft their
reservations. The causes of the threat
ened trouble are the entire failure of their
crops, the delay of congress in making ap
propriations for their sunport, and the
subsequent delay in getting supplies to
mem, resulting m uicir oeing orougnr to
Jamestown, N. D., Nov. lS.-It is learned
hero tonight that the Messiah crazo has
struck the Indians at Ft. Lincoln and they
are inclined to be ugly, and residents at
the fort object to the departure of the
troops for tho west. It is reported that 100
armed bucks were seen crossing the rail
road track at Minucwaukcc and were en
route to tho Turtle mountains to joiu the
Sioux at Standing Rock, but said they
were going hunting.
THE WAR DEPARTMENT.
Washington, Nov. 18. The war depart
ment has received no news today ot any
chance in the situation at the Pine Ridge,
Standing Rock, and other Sioux agencies;
and, as competent officers are on the
watch at all points where trouble is threat
ened, whose business it is to report auy
significant event, it is taken for granted
that no immediate trouble is at hand.
Acting Indian Commissioner Bell has
received no reliable information from
South Dakota which justifies the evident
alarm of the settlers in the neighborhood
of the Pine Ridge agency. That the In-
uiaus are creatly excited, tuere is no
doubt, but Mr. Bell is of the opinion that ,
so loug as tho Indians are not interfered
with, no harm will be done except to
themselves. He does not believe that the
government would be justified, under the
1 present excitement, in making any arrests,
or in any manner attempting to suppress
the ghost dances of the Indians, so long as
they commit no acts of violence.
AN ARMV OFFICER'S VIEWS,
St. Paul, Minn., Nov. IS. Gen. Ruger.
commander of the department of Dakota,
accompanied by Lieut. Woodruff, returned
this morning from their tour of inspection
among the various pots of the northwest.
Gen. Ruger was busy with accumulated
work, but Lieut. Woodruff said the re
ports of trouble were more or less exag
gerated. Regardiug tbee reports ho said:
"Some of the statements made are pecu
liar, particularly those with reference to
the belief that Mnudan is threatened with
an armed force. The Indians located near
est Mnudan are about thirty-five miles
away on the Cannon Ball river. They are
thrifty, industrious and peaceable people,
who have taken up claims, built houses
and huts, own cattle, ponies and wagons,
and nre in good circumstnnces. They are
Christianized Indians, having no faith in
superstitions, and disliking this Messiah
craze; for they say that it interferes with
the progress of the people. And every
vear these Indians sell hundreds of thous
ands of pounds of beef io the Standing
Rock agency, receiving not only a good
price therefor, but also some of the beef in
return as rations.
''Now, you can't convince me that peo
ple who liave land, homes, stock, cattle,
wagons, crops nnd a revenue, are at all
anxious to go to war. And yet they are
the ones to watch whom the people of
Mandan have sent scouts.
"During my inquiries I found that there
was nothing" haviug the appearance of a
war, or indicative of war in this Messianic
belief. The Indians say that the whites
are to be destroyed, but by the Christ
aloue, and without aid from the
red men. A wrave is to engulf the
pale faces but the Indians will be lifted
above it until it passes over. This
ghost dauce, too, is a harmless affair, be
ing equivalent to the Christiau commun
ion that is. a preparatory ceremony
through which the participants aim to per
fect themselves before the coming of the

New Orleans. Nov. 18. The excite
ment over the Italian, or rather anti-Italian,
issue, growing out of the recent as

is becoming more intensified, and it is
feared that serious disturbances are yet in
The Times-Democrat, following its
charges of cruelty to prisoners, published
yesterday three columns of interviews

prisoners speaking English and Italian.

which the mayor shows that nine of the
men charged with the murder of Henncs-
pci' liave "cn American citizens tor two
years or more. PudIic sentiment here con-
uemns tne consul s action as an unwar
ranted interference, and as likelv to cause
trouble. Tho principal feature of the con
sul's course was the writing of a letter to
the grand jury now sitting on the Hennes
sey case, charging brutality on the part of
the prison officials toward the suspected
men. The letter has created a sensation.
An Italian Catholic priest, wlio is also
the editor of an Italian newspaper, last
night issued a call on the Italian govern
ment to place an Italian man of war in
the Mississippi river for the protection of
the Italian residents of New Orleans.
TRAIN ROBBERS FOILED.
El Paso, Tex., Nov. 18. The east-bound
Texas aud Pacific train, which left here
yesterday afternoon, was held up hist
night by four men just on entering the
station of Kent. One of tho robbers named
Smith confessed to tho station agent at
Kent, and a number of guards were placed
on the train. The plan was that immedi
ately after leaving Kent. Smith was to go
into the baggage car and kill the engineer
and fireman if they refused to do his bid
ding, aud at the same time his confeder
ates were to attack the passengers, and, if
necessary, kill the conductor. However,
the guards were ready for the robbera, and
at the first symptoms of disturbance they
opened fire, and in all about forty shots
were exchanged. As far as could be
learned one ot the guards and two of the
robbers were wounded. Upon seeing the
resistance the robbers jumped from the
train, which had come to a standstill, aud
escaped under cover of tho darkness.
Smith is at'Foyan now, and declares that
all his confederates are ranchers in the
Rio Grande valley.

cape punishment he clinched Kessler, and

o'clock last night W. D. Viquesnej, the
snare drummer of the Third regiment
band, nnd a member of the Gillis opera
house orchestra, alighted from a horse car
at the corner of Prospect avenue and
Fifteenth street, for the purpose of taking

leaped from a dark corner and seized him
Three of them held him. the fourth cov

the fifth was preparing to go through his
pockets. Viquesucy is a powerful and
fearless man. With a sudden wrench he
threw off his assailants, quickly drew a
revolver, and ordered them to flee, which
they proceeded to do iu short order. The
scene of the assault Is a very public place,
but notwithstanding this, it has gained
somewhat of a reputation within the past
few months for the frequeucy of such
occurrences. A short time ago a street
car wras held up and the driver robbed.

Guthrie, Ok. Nov. 18. The following is
Governor Steele's message vetoing the
Kingfisher capital bill:
"Territory of Oklahoma,
Guthrie, Nov. 18, 1S90.
To the Speaker. House ot Representatives, Territor
"I think a fair construction of section 15
of the organic act, which is as follows:
'Sec. 15. That the legislative assembly of
the territory of Oklahoma shall hold its
first session at Guthrie, in said territory,
at such time as the governor thereof shall
appoint nnd direct; and at the said first
session, or as soon thereafter as they shall
deem expedient, the governor and legisla
tive assembly shall proceed to locate and
establish the seat of government for said
territory at such place as they may deem
eligible; which place, however, shall there
after be subject to be changed by the said
governor nnd legislative assembly' justi
fies the conclusion that the governor may
consult with the legislative assembly rela
tive to a measure looking to the establish
ment of the seat of government of tho ter
ritory. And with this in view, and tho
hope of opening the way to necessary leg
islation, I return herewith house bill No.
49, with the following suggestions and
"First That the date of its passage by
the house, as certified by its chief clerk,
be corrected: for while no cause for trouble
or litigation may ensue, it does not seem
proper for the executive to be called upon
to approve a bill which is certified to have
passed three or four days after it has been
presented to him.
"Second Why not leave it optional with
the commissioners as to which of the two
tracts of land, proposed to be donated in
section one, the capitol building shall be
erected upon? If not, it would seem better
to leave it to the commissioners as to
whether or not it is for tho best interests
ot the territory to survey, plat and sell the
one hundred aud sixty acres one mile from
the village or city of Kingfisher, or accept
it all, so much depending upon the loca
tion. "Third There should be a limit fixed to
the amount the capitol building shnll
cost (it is provided in section 5 tliat the
commissioners "may secure, approve plans
and contract for the erection of), not only
for the guidance of the commissioners but
with a view to insuring the people of tho
territory against extravagant expenditure.
"Fourth Whilo it is not likely there
will be any failure on the part of the citi
zens of Kingfisher county to comply with
the terms imposed by the bill, in order for
it to become a law, it occurs to me that it
would be well to insert as a saving clause
a proviso to section 7 something like the
following: Provided, that the terms and
conditions of this act are complied with;
otherwise at sucu temporary seat of gov
ernment as the governor may deem
"After the failure on the part of the leg
islative assembly to ncr, upon my sugges
tions, twice expressed, to authorize the ap
pointment of a commission to locate tho
various institutions after fair competition,
I do not think it worth while to again sug
gest it, by asking that the scope of the
commission provided for iu this bill be ex
tended, with a view to knowing if better
terms with as good location r ould be se
cured. "I hope the suggestions I have made,
however, may be acted upon as promptly
as convenient, aud the bill returned to me
for my further consideration and action.
I would have it understood that I am only
trying to have amendments made whicn
1 deem are of importance, and which I
think may with propriety be done under
the provisions of section 15 before referred
to. And it mav not be improper for me to
remind your honorable bodies that a pre-
bills for correction has been established at
the present session of the assembly if no
better reason therefor. Verv respectfully,
'George W. Steele,

Mr. Brvwn, of Oklahoma, said the
change would not benefit the farmer, as It
was intended; that it did not iDcrtat&e the
price of grain, and that in Ies Moines,
where the largest distillery in the world

"Mr. Parnell does not intend to resiRti the
leadership of the Irish parliamentary par
ty. He wrote with his own hand tho sum
mons issued Saturday to his followers,
calling upon them to be present at tho
opening of tho house of commons. It is
an undeniable fact that the hatred against
Mr Parnell disnlayed by the Tory papers
in their editorials Is causing a reaction of
public sentiment in his favor.'
The Globe says it doubts whether the
Gladstonians will follow Mr Gladstone if
he furthorrecopnizes Mr. Parnell as tho
leader of tho Irish Nationalists.

Mr. Parnell from the leadership of tho

was the chosen leader of the party, aud
that the party would stand by him whilo
