Omaha, Neb., May JJ5. Tuo report that a
council ci Sioux Indians was recently held
at Clear Creek, D. T.. and that Sitting
Bull and Standing Horse, Gerut and many
othcr leading Indians had decided not to
sign the treaty for the opanlng of the great
Sioux reservation and thus prevent its
being ot-cned for settlement, is without
foundation. Sitting Bull, Standing Horse,
Big Man, White Ghost and many other
leaders have been interviewed in the'las-t
few days and all ex pressed themselves as
anxious to meetrtho officers of thi Govern
ment and do what was wanted of them.
Sitting Bull is perfectly satisfied with
the provisions or the bill. It is believed
that the sisnutures will bd secured within
ninety dajs from thedateof presenting the
bill to the Indians. The reservation will
undoubtedly bo opened for setllein.-ut

The Inspiration of Good Dinner and a
I)rfre to frt the Prod d mi t and Mrtu
Cleveland Brlnjr Aboct Temporary Unity
or Northern unci Southern Preubjrte
rlani. Philadelphia, May 34. The Southern
Presbyterian delegates met with their
Northern brethren yesterday at the resi
dence of Mr. and Mr. Wiitar Morris, at
Overbrook, near this city, when they were
visited by President and Mrs. Cleveland.
When Dr. Thompson, the Northern Moder
ator, and Dr. J. J. Bullock, the venerable
Moderator of the Southern Assembly,
greeted each other there was a chorus of
cheers, which were renewed when the
visitors entered the grounds, where the
President and Mrs. Cleveland, the
host and hostess, and the commis
sioners of the Northern Assembly
were waiting t receive them. The latter
stood in dcuble row with uncovered heads
as the Southern members passed up to tho
front of the portico, where the exercises
were to be held, the venerable Dr. Brown,
of Virginia, and the Southern Moderator,
Rev. J. K. Bullock, D.D., of Washington,
coming in for a special share of applause.
Congressmen J. Randolph Tucker, of Vir
ginia, and Breckinridge, of Kentucky,
were conspicuous among the Southern lay
Mr. Morris introduced the President and
Mrs. Cleveland in a brief eddree s, and tho
President replied i-s follows: "I am very
much gratitied ty the opportunity here
afforded t meet the representatives of the
Presbyterian Church. Surely a man never
should lose his interc in the welfare of
the church in which he was reared, and
yet I will not find fMiltuith ci:y of you
who deem it a sad confession made when I
acknowledge that I must recall the days
now long past to find my closest rela
tion to the grand and noble de
nomination which you represent. I
say this because those of us who
inherit fealty to our church as I do begin
early to learn those things which make us
Presbyterians all the years of our lives;
and thus it is that the rigors of early teach
ing by which we are grounded in our last
ing allegiance are especially vivid and per
haps the fce-t remembered. Tho attend
ance upon church service three times each
Sunday and upon Sabbath school during
the noon intermission may be irksome
enough to a boy of ten or twelve years of
age to be well fixed in his memory, but I
have never known a man who regretted
those things in the years of hm maturity.
'The Shorter Catechism, though thor
oughly studied and learned, was not rer
hsips at one time perfectly nnderstood;
and yet in the stem labors and duties of
after life those are not apt to be the worst
citizens who were early taught 'What is
the chief end of man t1 Speaking of these
things and in the presence of those hero
assembled, the most tender thoughts crowd
upon my mind all connected with Presby
terianism and its teachings. There are
present with me now memories of a kind
and affectionate father, consecrated to tho
cause, und called to his res- and his
reward in the midday of his useful
ness; a sacred recollection of tho
prayers and pious lovo of a sainted
mother, and a family circle hallowed and
sanctified by the spirit of Presbyterianism.
I certainly can not but express the wish
and hopo that the Presbyterian Church
will always be at the front in every move
ment which promises the temporal as well
as the spiritual advancement of mankind.
In the turmoil and the bustle of every day
life few men are foolish enough to ignoro
the practical value to our people and our
country of the church organizations ebtab
lished among us and the .advantage of
Christian example and teaching. Tee
field is vast and the work sufficient to
cngatre the efforts of every sect and
denomination, but I am inclined to believe
that the church which is most tolerant and
ci nservative without loss or spiritual
strength will soonest find the way to the
hearts and affojtious of the people. While
wo may bo pardoned for iut-iting that our
denomination is the best we may, I think,
safely concede much that is good to all oth
er churches that sek to make men better.
I am here to grojt the delegates of two
General Assemblies of the Presbyterian
Church. One i-s called 'North' and the
other 'South.' The subject is too deep nnd
intricate for me, but I can not help won
dering why this should be. These
words so far as they denote separation and
estrangement should be obsolete. In the
councils of the Nation and iti the business
of the country they no longer mean re
proach and antagonism. Even the soldiers
who fought for the North and for the South
are restored to fraternity and unity. This
fraternity and unity is taught and enjoyed
by our church. When shall she herself be
united with nil the added strength and use
fulness that harmony and union insure."
The President spoke with an earnestness
and in a clear, ringing voice that was
heard all over the lawn. He was frequently
applauded, and his references to two ques
tion of union and fellowship were jireeied
with cries of "Good," ''Hear, hear," from
members of both Assemblies.
About eurht hundred guests were enter
tained at dinner.
Crazed by His DKiiglitpr' Illshonor, a
Father Commit Murder.
Omaha", May-24. Tuesday morning, near
Curtis in Lincoln County, Neb., Mrs.
Anna Bryant was shot and" killed bv her
father, Mr. Greenwood. Some months ago
Miss Greenwood confessed that she hai
been seJucel by Lemuel Bryant and
in time would cive birth to a child.
She and her friends thereupon eo r
pelled Bryant to marry her, but
Bryant never lived with her after
narrifigo and refused to contribute to her
support or have any thing to do with her.
Several indictments were found against
him by the graud jury for various offenses
and" he was compelled to jump the country
and has not since been heard of. The un
fcrtun ite girL who had left her home, re
turned to her father's house yesterday and
gave birth to a child. Mr. Greenwood, im
mediately after the birth, rushed into her
room and shot her to death. Mr. and Mrs.
Ratcllffe, who were passing the house on
-their way to Curtis, heard the shots. Mrs.
Greenwood rushed out with the infant
in her arms, notyetdressed,and screamed,
'For God's sake, take Annie's baby and
take care of it, for Greenwood has shot
her. Don't come near the house, for he
threatens to shoot the first person who
comes there." Greenwood soon afterward
fled, aad has not been captured.
A Chicago Sensation.
CniCAGO, May 24. There was
sensational scene in the Welch
trial vesterday, when the attorney for the

turned pale. '"We shall also ask the court,"
continued the attorney, "to hold Sumner
C. Welch, a B. Holmes and William
Starkey to tho grand jury on the criminal
charge of conspiracy to deleat the ends of

Chicago, May 22. The sub-committee of
the Nht.onal Republican Committee has
been in session in Chicago for two days,
arranging the details of the convention,
and decidng upan the distribution of
tickets and the allotment of seats to the
presB and other matters of detail. The
seating capacity of, the ha'l is 7,000, thus
necessitating a smaller apportionment of
seats than heretofore. The committee de
cided to give to each delegate three
general tickets for distribution, and
one press ticket to each delegate,
thus enabling the delegates to take
care of the local press in their dis
tricts and State. One hundred and forty
seven working seats at tables are provided
for each of the larger dally newspapers, as
will make ana sena out irom iuh iwu

the verbatim report- of the Associated
Press. 2o other papers excepting muso
sending out reports can be given represen

included the seats required by the Asso

The local press committee was directed
to carry out these provisions and
also notified that the largest number
of working tickets or seats given to any
paper should be three. The greater por
tion of the daily papers taking reports will
have but one "seat. Alternate delegates
will have no tickets except their own or
none for distribution. It has been the
usual custom to give to the city where tho
National convention is held fifteen per
cent, of the tickets. The committee has
reduced this for this convention to ten pjr
cent. The remaining tickets will be di

ion. Jeffersox Citt, Mo., May 22. Tho Su
preme Court, in an opinion rendered yes
terday, sustained the position taken by
Secretary of State McGrath in collecting
from building and loan associations organ
ize! in this State the constitutional tax of
J5J on the fiist $5'J,000 capital stock and fo
upon every additional S1U,0J0. Ihe Legs
lature in 1SS7 passed an act exempting
such organizaii ns from payment of the
tax, deciarmg them benevolent in their
character, but Mr. McGrath treated this
LCtas a nullity and demanded and collected
the tix before incorporating them. The
court on this point said in the rpinion
"that the declaration of the Legis ature

and that "such legislation legerdemain is

Assnnlt Upon a Wichita Widow by a Xesro
WicniTA, Kan., May 22. About two
o'clock this morning a negro entered tho
house of a widow named Sophia Stanley,
in the north part of the city, and committed
a criminal assa'ilt upon her. A five-year-old
child wa tho only other occupant of
the house. Mrs. Stanley was awakened
by a noi-e at the window only in
time to .tsco the negro jump
through jtha gauze screen. Before she
could, cry' for assistance be had
scize'd her by the throat. She is a slight
:wom'3n and was unable to offer much re
sistance. The. negro's fingers gradually
closed on her throat till she was uncon
scious. When she regained consciousness
the negro hud vanished. The neighbor
hoods were alarmed and the police not lied
but every effort so far has failed to find
her assailant. Three negroes have been
teken before her but she could not identify
anvofthem as the man. The exci ement
is "intense and is accompanied with the
usual talk of lynching'.
Del'ew a Candidate.
Washington', May 23. A prominent Con
gressman who is an intimate Iriend of
Chauncey M. Depew, although opposed to
him in politics, speaking of Depew's Presi
dential aspirations, said yesterday: "I
know that Mr. Depew is a candidate for
the Republican Presidential noraination,
but in the event of Judge Gresham's nomi
nation at Chicago he will accept second
place on the ticket. He will be a promin
ent figure in the campaign, even though
failing to obtain eithec nomination, because
he will then be the Republican candidate
for Governor of New York. I am certain,
however, that Mr. Depew prefers Gresham
next to himself." Whether this statement
is in acccfrd or in conflict with the lately
published iuterview with Mr. Blaine had
by a Buffalo newspaper man is a matter

Wreck or Two Freleht Trala Xear Kans
City Five Men Killed aad fe'cvaral In
jured Caowd by Ueavy Bala.
Kansas Citt, Ma, May 23. A. double
wreck occurred this morning at a small
creek one milo east of the Milwaukee
bridge at Randolph and fire mils from
this d'y. The accident was caused by tho
giving way of the bridge spanning tho
reek. Many cars and two engines wero
precipitated info the water.
A little before three o'clock this morning
an east bound freight train on the Rock
Island approached the creek at a high rate
of speed in order to clear the way for tha
east bound freight on the Hannibal railroad.
The Rock Island uses the Hanmlbal track
between Kansas City and Cameron. Just be
fore the engine reached the bridge Engin
eer Pete Weltzer noticed the structure
Bwagging nearly to the water, which was
rnnnlai? like a torrent uaderaaath. Ho
shouted to Fireman Snyder to jump. Be
fore they had time to do so the train
dashed on to the bridge and both Waltier
and Snyder wero thrown into the oreek.
They escaped with slight Injuries. Fito
freight cars loaded to their utmost capa
city thea piled into the creek in an indis
criminate mass, splintering aud smashing
the cars and throwing their contents into
the water anl on the bank.
The engine, No. 523, got over taa hrWge
safely, but was pulled back by the tender
and stands up on end far above the debris.
Y. Royston, a braVemau, vrai on top of ouo
of the freight cars which went into the
cree'i, and was instantly killed, being
mashed beyond recognition. Royston was
a married man and lived at Edgerton, Kan.
Brakeman Edward C. Armstrong was
sent ahead to flag the Hannibal freight.
He mistook the tracks, and walkod along
on the Wabash tracks in the direction of
the Milwaukee bridge. Armstrong did not
carry a lantern, and as tha moon was shin
ing brightly he relied upon boing able
to stop the trnin before it got
to the bridge. Just below the Milwaukee
bridge both tho Hann bal and Wabash
tracks make a sudden curve to the right
so that a coming tra n can not h- soon un
til it is well out from utder the bridge.
Both sides of the track aro heavily wooded
so that it would be impossible for any ono
to sec a headlight until it had passod the
curve. Armstrong, it is supposed, walked
down the track near the bridge nnd
turned to retrace hU steps wuen lie
was struck by a westbound freight train
on the Wabash railroad. The Rock Island
men claim that the Wabash train
had no headlight and th?J. Armstrong was
run over and killed before ho had time to
gvt off the trade
It was just tea minutes after the wreck
ing of tho Rock Island train when the Wa
bash freight, composed of an eugino aud
twelve box cars, heavily laden, came thun
dering along. The wreck was not discov
ered by the engineer, B jamin McClolUn,
until it was too late to stop his train. He
sodnded tho whistle and the engineer, lire
man and brakeman jumped from the train.
In jumji-ig Engineer McClollan was
thrown against a pile of ties. His scalp
was torn in several places and one of hi
At this time tho men about the wreck
heard heartrending shrieks and saw two
men standing on top of the approaching
train. They were gestic ilating and saoui
ine for help. Their cries were drowned by
the horrible crash which followed. Tue
Wabash bridge was parallel to that of the
Hannibal and distant from it only about
two feet. They were braced togothor, and
the breaking of the former destroyed the
braces. Itistead of this bridce breaking
it turned to one side, throwing the engine
into the creek and piling eleven cars on
top of it The engine is completely demol
ished and the cars are broken into splin
ters. Tho wreck of the Wabash train was more
disastrous thin that of the Rook IslanJ.
The bodies of two men wera found, terrib y
cut nnd mnngled. From their dress it .s
supposed that they were tramps stcali g
their last ride on the top of the triu. The
noise of the escaping steam from both en
gines, an i the possibility of an explosion,
p evented the train hands from attempting
to rescue any me who might be in the
wreck. Alter the turmoil had ceased,
faint groans were heiiri from the Wa
bash wrec. Willing hands at ont
set to work to find tho unfortunate. After
working half an hour the men pulled out
Ben Norns, a colored youth, who was
pinned down by heavy beams with his
face and head nearly submerge I in tht
water which had been dammed up by the
wreck and now was beginning to run ovei
it. Norris was a roustabout and wts in u
box car whon the wreck o. curred. Neat ly
every bone in his body was broken and he
is not exrected to live.
Brakeman John H.Leydon of the Wabast
train sustained internal injuries.
The spot where the accident occurred is
low ground, lying between the foot of the
bluffs and ub.ut 101 yards from the Mis
souri river. The hndrres spanned a ravine
which is forty feet wide and twenty feel
deep. They were the common wooden
trestle bridges usually constructed by
railroads to cross ravines and small
streams. The heavy rains of last night
washed away the piers and left nothing :c
support the bridge bit the soft clayey
earth on either side, which was being con
tinually washed away by the increasing
volume of water.
Later At 0:30 this evening the body ol
James Taylor, another tramp, was taken
from the wreck. He was found b3iieath a
pair of frcicht car tracks and his death
must have been instantaneous. The work
man 'also discovered the remains of an
oth ! man later, who is supposed to be an
other tramp, inasmuch as the trainmen
have all beeu acoountcd for. He was held
down under a mass of heavy timbers, and
as it would hnve required much time to ex
tricatc the toJy the workmen turned their j
attention to repairing the track. '
Tho list of killed and injured is now as i
follows: Killed E. C. Armstrong, Rock
Island brakeman, Bellcville.O.; Y. Royston,
Rock Island brakeman, Edgerton Junction,
Kaa.; Emil Strohan, tramp, Allegheny,
Pa.; James Taylor, tramp, residence un
known; unknoivn tramp. Injured Bin
McClenand, Rock Island engineer; Michael
Hatt, tramp; Elmer Norris, colored tramp:
C. J. Snyder, Rock Island fireman.
The Rock Island places its loss at S20.03C
and the Wabash at 55,000, but these esti
mates are thought to be under the mark
It is thought tnat early to-morrow the
tracks will be cleared and the bridges re
paired so that traffic can be resumed.

THE CENTENNIAL EXPOSJTIOH.
No event of thevpast decade has created
as much interest in the whole country as
the coming of the Centennial Exposition of
the Ohiovalley and Central States, which
opens its doors in Cincinnati on the nation's
birthday (July 4), to continue for one hun
dred days and nights celebration In honor
of the one hundredth anniversary of the
settlement of the Northwest Territory.
Unlimited means have been placed at the
disposal of the managers by the enterpris
ing business element of the Queen City, and
nothing is being left undone that will con
iituv tn th snrcesa of the undertaking. In
stead of a local -as some suppose it is a
National event, made so by the hearty co
operation on the part of a dozen of the chief
Rtjtj in theiTTnlon- and the encouragement
given it by tha fact that "Uncle Sam" in
tends to make an exhibit of his own of the
treasures stored away in Washington City

The guarantee fund of one million ana
fiftv thousand dollars, which the Board of
Commissioners have at their command, has
enabled them to provide magnificent quar
ters in which to display the mass of articles
already offered, and these, in conjunction
with the permanent building in which nu
merous Expositions on a smaller scale have
been held, and which cost over one million
dollars, will give to this affair better facili

porary buildings, when ready for occu
pancy, will have cost no less than a quarter
of a million of dollars, and are models of

The Exposition has been advertised for
the past year in a masterly manner, and
there is no section of the country that has
failed to hear of the great event. Applica
tions for exhibiting space have been re
ceived in abundance from every clime, and
there seems to be no reason to doubt its en
tire success, both artistically and finan
cially. Srnixo poets should be pitied rather
than berated; "mercury" and "thermom

English language to find rhymes for.
