ol the Tenth judicial district, while visit-
Ing in Omaha to-day was sued for 150,000
damages by an ex-penitentiary convict
Darned John Williams. Eleven years asro,
Williams, who lived in Kearney county,
had a quarrel with a neighbor, named
Vroonian, and his son. both of whom ho
shot and killed. > Judge Beraer. then a
practicing attorney, defended him. Will
iams says in his petition that be was in
dicted for murder in the lirst degjee. that
there was great prejudice airain-t him in
Kearney county as well as in Buffalo
county, but nevertheless defendant Homer
permitted him to be indicted and allowed
the case to go to Buffalo county; that he
(Williams) was there convicted of man
slaughter and sentenced to ten years; that
a new trial was granted, that other counsel
argued the case in the supreme court, that
the case came back and he was tried in
Buffalo county for the killing of the son,
but that he always thought that Adams
county was the best county; that the case
for killing the father was sent to Adams
county and as evidence that he was right
he was acquitted in Adams county, but was
convicted again in Buffalo county for kill
ing tin sou. His claim for time spent in
prison is put in at 53 a day. The rest of
the £50,000 is for damages to his feelings.

Leech Lake Indian Agency, Minn.,
Sept. 11. — The labors of the western
Indian commission has again been crowned
by the most gratifying results, having just
concluded at this place their negotiations
with the Pillager Indians of the Leech
Lake reserve. The duties of the com
missioners here have been exceedingly
arduous and their negotiations extremely
tedious, to say the least and the satisfactory
result? which have followed, in the very
face of the strong opposition and the evil
influences exerted over the Indians, is
largely due to the earnest, persistent and
patient toiling which has ehaaraeterized
their dealings in all their negotiations thus
far with the lnniads. After the Indians
had assembled it took but a short time to
discover that their minds had been wrought
upon by letters and enunissaries sent by
parties interested, and whose desires were
to defeat and prevent the consummation of
any agreement. But the commissioners,
not daunted by these obstacles, continued
to labor patiently with the Indians until an
agreement was concluded, which provided
for the cession of the reservation to the
United States, and the sale thereof in tracts
of forty acres each, under sealed proposals,
to the highest bidder for cash, the proceeds
derived therefrom to be placed to ; their
credit in the treasury of the United States,
and to draw 5 per cent, interest, which in
terest is to be annually expended for their
benefit in the advancement of civilization;
and also for their removal to tiie White Earth
reservation where thus concentrated with an
evident agent to advise and instruct them,
they will soon forget their wild lives and
abandon their predatory habits for the more
peacable pursuits of civilization. The
agreement also provides for the payment to
the Pillager band of Chippewas ot SIOO,
--000 for damages, caused by the construe
tion of dams and reservoirs upon their res
The agreement is approved by a large
majority of the Indians, though a few re
fused to sign it. To-day the opposition
met the commissioners in the council room
and assured them of their good feelings
and friendship. About twenty of them
were present of the thirty-two who opposed
the agreement. The speakers eloquently
expressed the greatest confidence in the
honesty, friendship and good wishes of the
commission and their confidence in the gov
ernment, which was heartily approved by
the others. Each of the commissioners,
Judge White, Bishop Whipple and Maj.
Larrabee, expressed his thanks for the
kind expressions of the speaker, and
pledged themselves to do all in their power
to advance the interests and happiness of
the great Ojibway nation. Twelve chiefs
and their braves and a large number of
other Indians signed the agreement, and it
will doubtless have the sanction of very
nearly every Ojibway on this reservation.
To-morrow the commission start by canoe
to the other reservations, Cass Lake and

St. Cloud, Minn., Sept. 11.— In all
probability St Cloud has never before in
its history seen such an assembly of people
as it had to-day. When the Willuiar ex
cursion was first spoken of it was thought
that at the most it would not amount to
over one thousand people. But when the
excursion came in this noon the train was
fairly packed. Even in the baggage car
there was not an inch to spare, and the
platform of every coach was full. It was
received here by a large number of our
citizens, and under the supervision of the
marshals was assigned to carriages, wagons
and every other kind of vehicles imagina
ble, and driven out to the fair, where a free
lunch was dealt out to all who wished to
partake. Tho delegation was accompanied
by the Willmar Cornet band, which dis
coursed some fine music while the visitors
were leaving the train, and it was also
driven out to the fair, where it will furnish
the music during the day. . . .The St. Cloud
nine was again defeated yesterday by the
Monticello team, the score being 18 to 5.
This gives the purse of $200 to the latter,
and it accordingly returned . home this

Eatj Claire, Sept 11. — The Democ
racy of Eau Claire county is in a dilemma
r- to wl»t to do with Ex-Assemblyman i
Thomas Canuichael, the old friend of the
workintjmau. The Hon. Thomas, who is
at swords' points with the Yiias-Ilayden
wing of the party and has some backing
with the laboringmen, insists on being nom
inated for the assembly at the Democratic
convention to be held next week. The
leaders of the other win? have in vain tried
to induce Mr. Carmichael to run for the
senate (he would be sure of defeat), but he
refuses to bite. The situation, as put by a
Democrat, is this: If the convention nom
inates Carmiehael for the assembly, his
backers may infer that he has sold out to
the Vilas-Ilayden wing, and may accord
ingly cut him and defeat him: whereas, if
he is refused the nomination, he is likely to
run independent Mid smash every
thing. So that the Vilas-Haydeh wing is
afraid to kick him out of the convention,
because that might elect him, and is afraid
to nominate him because he would probably
be defeated as a regular nominee, his great
est strength arising from the martyrdom
which he baa suffered at the hands of the
"aristocratic" ring; whereas, it the conven
tion nominates some new man without
entanglements, there is every probability
of success. ___

that It was necessary to carry them out the

the curiosity of a morbid public. As I was

in order to have my trunks cheeked. So far
as anj secresy in regard to my movements
is concerned, there was none. I make few
confidents, if any, as my business is strictly
my own. However, I did write my sister a
letter, telling- her to come at once and claim
what she had a claim on, that I
had worked all my life and could go
out in the world again and start anew for
myself, as 1 at least bad ray trade, which no

Experience of a Vessel on Superior
During Last Week's Shake Up.
Chicago. Sept. 11. — Capt Marsden, of |
the propeller Donaldson, relates a strange
experience he had on the trip to Chicago
one nieht last week. While coming up Lake i
Superior with the schooners Brightie and j
Nelle Mason in tow, a furious gale from
the northeast was encountered. The wind
attained a velocity of fully forty miles an
hour, and continued with unabated fury for
several hours. It was accompanied by a
vicious cross sea. the waves running very
hish even for Lake Superior. The steamer
labored badly in the heavy seas, and it was
with great difficulty that she succeeded in
weathering the gale. Suddenly and with
out any apparent cause the wind died away
iuto a dead calm and in less than live min
utes the white capped waves flattened out
into a perfectly smooth sea, The crews of
the three vessels were greatly mystified by
the strange phenomenon and all agreed that
they had never seen anything like it on the
lake before. Turning to his mate the cap
tain remarked that there must have been
some unusual disturbance on land. On
reaching the Sault the captain went ashore
and secured a newspaper. It was then he
learned that at about the same time he had
witnessed the singular action of wind and
wav« Charleston had been badly shaken up
by an earthquake.
