NEW ORLKANS, Oct. 4.The Gretna, Howard
and Young Men's Christian association visiting
committees report the total number of desti
tute sick at 280. To attend to these there are
but three physicians, who have i)3 patients each
to visit, besides their regular practice. The
disease is spreading with frightful rapidity, at
tacking both black and white alike. The E is
copalian minister. Catholic priest, one Brother
and two Sisters of Mercy are down with fever.
A. W. Denett, telegraph operator at VickR
burg, and L. M. Pennington, telegraph train
dispatcher at Water Valley, died this morning
of yellow fever. The telecraphers' aid com
mittee at tins city, by request of Superintend
ent John Van Home, New York, will assist all
Bick telegraphers outside of Memphis. This
becomes necessary owing to the illness of the
remaining members of the committee. Ap
plications should be made to C. It. Chase,
chairman, or A. D. Ballott, secretary. The re
ports at the board of health shows the fever
increasing in the lowest portion of the Third
district near the United States barracks,
slaughter house and along thp line of St. Ber
nard parish. The fever has penetrated every
portion of the Second district from the river
to the woods. In addition to the yellow fever
an extreme type of malarial fever prevails
among the children.

Christian Association 127, Howard 169. The
Peaborlvs issued ij 1,1 '23 rations.
The Howards received the following: "Tangi-

A CRY FOfi HELP.
NEW ORLEANS, Oct. 4.Frank A. Richardson,
Isaac N. Marks, Augustus Richards, sub-com
mittee of the Orleans relief committee, make
an appeal to the United States for means to
supply the destitute with food. The commit
tee state they represent thirty organizations
that have devoted themselves to do good on
earth to their fellow men. They have united
in a common effort in behalf of the destitute,
6nd will be pleased to receive and distriubte
all contributions. The appeal sets forth
that thre are 200,000 people in
New Orleans, among them many
thousands destitute. The fear of contagion
has caused the outside world to close its doors
against ns as lepers. Our avenues of trade are
closed, and strong men who would willingly
work are compelled to remain idle. The ap
peal concludes: "You who have already re
sponded to the calls of others for relief know
only that the city is filled with the plague-smit
ten and dying, but another affliction scarcely
less to be dreaded, follows the disease into
nrnny homes and strikes the strong and well.
Hunger and want claim many whom the pesti
lence spares. To ihe sick is given medicines,
to the dead burial, and we appeal to the hu
mane of our country to save from starvation
those who are well.
NECESSITY FOR AID FOR NEW ORLEANS.
NEW ORLEANS, Oct. 4.The following tele
grams passed to-day: "Washington, Oct. 4: To
Collector of Customs, New Orleans: Report by
telegram of the actual condition of suffering
and,want from yellow fever, extent of relief
on hand and its sufficiency, and nature and ex
tent of relief indispensable. Write, also, fully.
(Signed) Jno. Sherman, sec'y." "New Orleans,
Oct. 4: To Hon. John Sherman, Secretary of tlie
Treasury, Washington, D. There is more
need of aid than ever. The wharves are bare,
industrial enterprises closed up, and nearly ev
ery laboring man out of employment.
A meeting last Monday of nearly all
charitable associations developed the fact that
with the exception of the Howards, funds are
nearly exhausted. The Howards furnish no
statement of funds on hand. It may not be
consistent with their rules to do so. Provis
ions are most needed, and in my opinion the
New Orleans relief committee is best organized
for said distribution. They have reported the
need of 60,OiJ0 rations in addition to what have
been issued. I have no idea that will be
enough. Forty charitable institutions through
a committee have made an appeal to the coun
try which goes over the wires to-night. I cor
fiially endorse therepresentations made therein.

Hon. Cas-ey Young, after a three weeks' ill
ness, is up again and caring jr the sick. Ap
peals have been made to him for aid for Grand
Junction, Lagrange, Moscow, Collierville and
other towns in his district which have been
reached by the fever, and he has sent Mayor
Ely, of New York, and Pierce, of Boston, and
others, the following telegram: "Thanks to
the kindness of our friends abroad. The
Howard association and the citizens' relief
committee of Memphis have means enough
they think to meet the wants of our people
here until the epidemic subsides, but the
fever has reached nearly every other town in
my district, and I therefore request that a part
of any further contributions of money or sup
plies, by the generous people of other sections,
be sent for distribution to these other afflicted
places." (Signed) CASEY YOUNG.
Col. Young speaks in the highest and warm
est terms of his colleagues in Congress from
the Northern and Southern States for the gen
erous sympathy they have expressed for our
suffering people, and their prompt and active
efforts in soliciting and forwarding money for
their relief. Prominent among those who have

warning to others the following poblica
tion is made: "it having come to our knowl
edge that some parties who had fled the city at
the outbreak of the epidemic have returned,
contracted the fever and died, it is my duty,
by resolution of the Howard association, to
warn all refugees that owing to the fact that
we have, all we can do to nurse and care for
those who are here, if they come back to the
city before the epidemic has been officially de
clared over they will do so at their own risk
and with almost the certainty of having to
provide for themselves in case of sickness. Our
present obligations are as many and weighty as
we can carry, and we cannot, without breaking
down, receive any more. Refugees need not
return. The fate of those who have should be
a warning to all."

SUCCESSFUL TREATMENT AT LOUISVILLE.
LOUISVILLE, Oct. 4.The greatest success has
attended the treatment of imported cases of
yellow fever in the hospitals especially pro
vided sick Spntherners by Louisville.
During the past week theie has been such a
decided decrease in the number of imported
cases of yellow fever, and such quick recovery
among those suffering, that one hospital has
been closed and all nurses, except a few that
are necessary, paid off and sent South. Of the
very large number once, only three cases re
main, the majority having recovered. Not
withstanding an occasional case of malarial
fever, the health of the city continues ex
ceptionally good, the mortality being lesH
than during a corresponding week for five
years. Among the donations to the yellow
fever relief fund has been that of Will S.
Hayes, the great song writer, who donated half
a prize drawn several days ago in the Common
wealth Distribution company.

LONDON, Ost. 4.The total liabilities of
Smith, Fleming & Co., East India merchants,
whose failure was announced yesterday, are
estimated at over $10,000,000. The liabilities
of their corresponding firms which fail with
them, W. Nichols & Co., Bombay, and Fleming
& Co., of Kurrachee, are doubtless considerably
less. It is understood, however, that in con
sequence of exchanges of paper between the
bank of the City of Glasgow and India houses,
the same set of liabilities will be found re
peated in the balance sheets of all these failed
The Financier says: "It is morally certain
that all firms concerned in this sort of circular
bill flying must succumb. One house in Scot
land and Australia is concerned in this paper to
the amount of $5,000,000. One doing business
in Scotland and the East .$2,500,000. One
located in India owes $8,000,000 for accept
ances, and $3,600,000 for cash advances. Three
other affiliated Indian houses aggregate an in
debtedness of $6,250,000."
The Financier estimates that the share
holders of the City of Glasgow bank must meet
a deficit of $2,000,000, placing the fail
ure among the most disastrous on record.
The Times, in its financial articles, says that
the condition of the city should be the same as
if nothing had happened is not to be expected,
but beyond a little difficulty in dealing in some
public securities, which as a rule are readilv
negotiable, nothing unusual has occurred.
Money is in rather more demand and about
4% per cent, is obtainable for best three
remitted bills. A call for Bank of Eng
land notes by bankers and others made the
bank return worse in its proportion of liabili
ties to reserve by nearly nine per eent. than
would have otherwise been the case, and the
reserve has fallen about a million and a half
pounds, owing to withdrawal, besides loss of
some gold forcurrency purposes. The Glasgow

THE AFGHAN WAR.
LONDON, Oct. 4.A dispatch from Bombay
says four of the Ameer' s.infantry regiments and
six guns are stated to have arrived in front of
Ali Musjud, a short nistance up the Khyber
Pass, and have advanced within three miles of
Jamrud, at which place a detachment of British
troops has arrived. Much larger bodies of Af
ghan troops are on their way down. These
threaten to attack the Khyberos for having
allowed the British mission to penetrate the
pass. This would throw the hill tribes into
our hands. It is expected we will assist them
if the Ameer should attack them. Probably
our first advance will be into the Koorum val

taken from the Ali Musjid fort, and we will
occupy some of the minor passes. Hostilities
may begin any moment.

Decision Wiping Out the Assets of the
Failed Bank of Missouri.
ST. LOUIS, Oct. 4.The suit of the Bank of
Commerce, of New York, against the Bank of
the State of Missouri, to recover $400,000,
which has been before the United States cir
cuit court several days, was decided this after
noon by Judge Dillon instructing the jury to
find for the plaintiff iu the sum of $445,582.
The defense set up fraud in the transaction
also, that the original loan was
made in violation of the national
bank law which the court decided was not es
tablished, and instructed the jury as above.
The original loan of the Bank of Commerce
was $1,000,000, $600,000 of which was return
ed, leaving a balance of $400,000 due when the
State bank suspended. The sum, it is said,
will nearly cover the assets of the State bank
and leave depositors out in the cold.

THE CHEYENNE WAR.
DENVER, Col., Oct. 4.The following dis
patch from Wallace, Kansas, referring to the
band of Indians which left the reservation
near Fort Reno, is just received. The Indians
crossed the Kansas Pacific railroad Sunday
morning going north. When about twenty
five miles north of Buffalo station they
commenced killing settlers, and so far seven
teen dead bodies have been found along Sapha
creek. The Indians do not go out of their
way at all to kill white people, but if they
meet a man on horseback they kill him and
take his horse. They are eighty or one hun
dred miles north of the Kansas Pacific
with troops pressing them pretty hard.
They have killed no women nor children
and have not thus far mutilated the bodies of
their victims. The report that Lieut. Broder
ick was killed is untrue. There has been no
fight here since Friday, and Broderick is here,
well and hearty.
CHKYKNNI-, Oct. 4.An engine and caboose
just returned to Ogallalla say they saw a trail
across the track, and can see Indians on the
bluffs. The troop train has not yet departed
Ogallalla reports say that Indians were east
of that station. Fifty citizens in Ogallalla are
armed and mounted and prepared to defend the
town should it be attacked. Scouts are sent in
COW BOYS ON A SCOUT.
OGALLALLA, Neb., Oct. 4.The Indians are
crossing the North Platte river north of here
six miles. A party of "cow boys" started
from here this morning to scout. They over
took a party of Indians killing a beef, ex
changed shots and made the Indians drop the
beef, and captured one horse, one mule,
blankets, lariats, hats, etc. They are going
north as fast as possible. Nearly all the ranch
men are here with their horses.
SIDNEY, Neb., Oct. 2.Filed Cheyenne Oct.
4th: Major Thornburgh, with a command
numbering about 200 men, left here on a
special train at 1 p. M. for Ogallalla to endeavor
to stop the hostile Cheyennes. He will be
joined at Julesburg by Lieut. Davis and com
mand from South Platte. The Cheyenne pris
oners, numbering about 250 persons, including
75 warriors en route for Indian Territory, who
were held at this place until the renegades had
passed, were disarmed this morning and are
now in camp at Sidney barracks, guarded by
Captain Fitzgerald's company. The Indians
first refused to surrender and trouble was an
ticipated, but when the troops surrounded
they gave up their rifles and ponies, sub
mitting to overwhelming numbtrs.
CAMP ROBINSON, Neb., Oct. 4.The five com
panies of Third cavalry, commanded by Col.
Carlton, who arrived some days ago, broke up
camp at 9 o'clock last night to make a night
march, and intercept the Indians, if possible,
before arriving at a point north of Clark's
bridge, on the Sidney road. I would appear
by the latest information that the hostiles
now pursued by troops are endeavoring to reach
new Red Cloud agency on Wolf Creek, fifty
seven miles from Camp Robinson, if they
succeed in outmarching the troops, which is
not at all improbable, being better mounted
and having nearly 300 stolen horses in their
possession as a reserve.

CHICAGO, Oct. 4.The following dispatch
was received by Gen. Sheridan this afternoon:
Omaha, Oct. 4.Lieut.-Gen. Sheridan: Thorn

Cheyennes crossed the Union Pacific an hour
a go at Alkali, five miles of Ogallalla. My
command leaves in five minutes, going three
miles an hour. Have informed Carleton and

from the telegraph operator at Ogallalla and
had already instructed Carleton to change his
direction so as to met the Indians at the

SIX HOURS BEHIND.
OGALLALLA,Neb.,Oct 4.-The hostile Cheyennes
crossed the Union Pacific road five miles east
of this point this morning at 10:30. A party
of Bcouts from this place followed up the trail
and overtook a small party of Indians in the
rear body, with whom they exchanged a few
shots, the Indians then fleeing and abandoning
a few head of stock. The scouting party esti
mate the number of Indians at between 150
and 200. Major Thornburg, who was waiting at
Sidney, ready to march at a moment's notice,
was advised of their crossing, and immediately
started for this place with his command,
numbering one hundred and fifty
mounted men. Through some delay he did
not reach Ogallalla until 4 o'clock, thus giv
ing the Indians six hours start of him. Major
Thornburg started immediately in pursuit, and
is to-night camping on the North Platte. Ma
jor Mauck's command, who have been on the
trail several days, reached here at 6 o'clock,
camped on the Suth Platte to-night, and will
join Major Thornburg to-morrow. Lieutenant
Davis, who has also been following their trail
with a force of 100 men, arrived here hy train
from Julesburg, and wdl march to-night and
will overtake Major Thornburg on the North
Platte. The Indians are traveling due North,
and it is anticipated will be overtaken by the
soldiers to-morrow some time.
ANTICIPATED TROUBLE WITH THE RED CLOUDS.
YANKTON, D. T., Oct. 4.Dr. James Irwin,
agent of Red Cloud Indians, arrived here to
day on the way to Washington to consult with
the secretary of the interior and President
upon the situation of affairs of the Indians
under his control. His Indians, tired of wait
ing for permission to move to White Clay, have
abandoned their agency on the Missouri river
and gone back 100 miles in the country, and
are camped on Pass Creek. They say they will
remain there until they hear from Washington.
The disaffected Indians number over 6,000. Dr.
Irwin has information which leads him to the
belief that renegade Cheyennes from the South
are intending to join his Indians at Pass Creek,
and should this occur there is serious trouble
ahead for the Black Hills and other frontier
settlements. Across the Ocean in the Ship's Ho ld With

Vote Against Washburn the Wheat ShylocU.
Red Wing Argus. 1
Very naturally the voters of the Third
district living along the lines of roads men
tioned are incensed, and as the Republican
candidate for Congress is at the head of
this association this expose by the St. Paul
chamber of commerce has caused a good
deal of fluttering in the Republican ranks.
Men are very apt to vote as their
pecuniary interests dictate, and it will be
very difficult to convince the wheat grower
that the buyer who is trying to keep down
the price of his grain is the safest man to
represent them in Congress. Aside from
any political question the practice, as de
tailed by Mr. Hodges, is reprehensible in the
highest degree, and we shall be very much
surprised if the voters of that district do
not express their dissatisfaction very em
phatically next November.
Washburn's Interest in the Ring,
[Fergus Falls Advocate.]
In a miserable attempt to defend its pro
tege, the Journal says: "Gen. Washburn
has no connection with the Millers' associ
ation." We ful'y expected you to say this,
Adoniram but the trouble is you can't prove
your assertion. Now for the facta. Bill
Washburn and his brother are part owners
of two of the largest mills in Minneapolis,
and Mr. Christian represents one mill in the
association and Mr. Hazard the other. Th
wheat ring was organized by W. D. Wash
burn and his associates, and the Washburns
being the largest consumers of wheat have a
heavier interest in the "Ring" than others.
Washburn Member of Roth Rings.
[St. Cloud Times.
The Minneapolis Tribune endeavors to make
it appear that Milwaukee is responsible for the
grading of the wheat on the line of the St.
Paul & Pacific, bmt it knocks its whole theory
by giving the following statement of Mr. An
drews, secretary of the Minneapolis Millers'
association: "The Millers? asxociation in this
city have an inspector to whose grade tlie
wheat must come to be eligible to a market here.
Could anything be clearer." The millers' ring
shuts out all outside buyers, and then if the
farmer does not accept the grade fixed by the
wheat ring he can keep his grain at home and
let it rot. Washburn is a member of the wheat
ring as well as of the pine land ring. Lay him
out, farmers. Vote down every time.
How Washburn's Wheat Ring Works.
[St. Cloud Times.]
The Minneapolis Millers' association for the
purchase of wheat is a curse to the farmers,
because it prevents competition. Before its
organization, each miller sent out agents and
"bought on their own hooks."
This produced a competition, which
caused high prices, and was thus a
benefit to the farmers. The millers of Minne
apolis then put their heads togetheraud formed
this association for the very purpose of avoid
ing competition, and thus getting wheat at
their own grade and prices. I has worked so
well that no other buyers appear on the Main
Line of the St. Paul & Pacific.
Give Strait a Rest.
Red Wing Argus.J
The Congressional fight is progressing
most satisfactorily, the Democrats feeling
very confident of victory. Very little noise
is made, but the mass of the Republican
voters, dissatisfied at the greed of Strait for
office, are quietly making up their minds to
give him a little needed rest from his arduous
labors at Washington. A vote for Poehler is
the best way to rid the district of the silent
member, who occupies the seat and draws
the salary that ought to go to a real, live
Workings of the Ring.
[Todd County Argus.]
It was stated before the St. Paul chamber
of commerce that the Minneapolis millers
have joined themselves together- for the pur
pose of keeping down the price of wheat by
grading it low, and otherwise ?11 along the
St. Paul & Pacific, where they have the
power in their hands. Minneapolis denies
this, of course, but it may be the case.
Washburn Distributing His Plunder.
[St. Cloud Times.J
Gen. W. D. Washburn, candidate for Con.

wheat rings, was in the city for a short time
on Friday. He did not remain long, but made
ample provision for a liberal supply of money
to be used in this county during the campaign.
This money was probably made out of tne
farmers by grading their wheat low. I will

MONTREAL, Oct. 4.Edward B. Rankin, of
the Boston Herald, who yesterday acted as
judge for Courtney, prfblishes a letter in which
hesavs: "I venture the judgment now that
Courtney is the better and more enduring
sculler of the two, that despite the roughness
of tne water, he succeeded, whenever he made
an effort, in closing with Hanlan, and that at
the finish he out-rowed the Toronto man. and
lost the race by ceasing to pull at a critical
moment, when nearing the goal. Hud he con
tinued rowing, and hauled ont into the course,
instead of resting on his oars, the race was his
own. It seems incredible that a man of Court
ney's intelligence should be so far lost to pride
of country and the interests of friends as to
lose the race intentionally, and until something
definite is developed it is only just to hope
and believe that the race was lost through an
error of judgment."
The following extract from a Montreal
dispatch to the Boston Herald, will throw some
light upon the above letter: "On either fide of
the course at the start and finish were long lines
of booms, introduced to keep ont boats of all
kinds. Several tugs and barges had got inside.
Tlu line of booms was then pulled down close
up to this line. Courtney pushed Hani an with
tremendous power, and actually carried him so
far as to bewilder him. As thev neared the
finish Han Ian seemed to lose" bis usual
calmness and self-possession, and before he
was aware of it he was close on to a tug with
Courtney just outside. Had Courtney con
tinued to row and pulled five or six feet, he
would have had the race won, as Hanlan slacked
up and was rowing leisurelv. Seeing this,
Courtney cased rowing, and at once Hanlan
quickened again, and just pulled out of the
pocket in season to get clear water, and pulled
over the line at an angle of thirty degrees.
Courtney was told to pull on, and he did so in
season to cross the finish a length and a half

though it is probable both men will keep on
walking until tomorrow night. At noon
O'Leary had scored 339 and Hughes 283 mileB.
Hughes has deposed Joe Goss from his position
as trainer. His friends say they last night dis
covered that Goss had made an arrangement
with O'Leary whereby if Hughes should at
tempt to run to-day or to-morrow he would be
so trained as to fail. Thi morning Goss came
and tried to enter Hughes' house and start him
on the track, but his friends interfered and
sent for Mr. Gilmore, saying they wished to
have Goss kept away from the track or they
would withdraw Hughes and claim a foul.

The frequent mysterious burning of hay
