New YoßK.April 28.— Dense fog hung
like a pall over the river and over the
city this morning. The squadrons of
war vessels at anchor in mid-stream
were not visible from the shore. The
fog was so thick that wigwagging and
semaphoring from ship to ship was im
possible, and naphtha launches were
used to carry messages from the flag
ships to the others of each nation. At
8 o'clock the sun was visible breaking
through the mist, but it was half an
hour later before the hullsof the vessels
were visible from the shore. Then the
fog lifted. with bright skies overhead
and a warmer atmosphere than yester
day, the bluejackets and marines from
our own ships and the foreign vessels
prepared to land. A steam launch from
11. M. S. Blake, with a squad of blue
jackets, was the first of the foreign con
tingent to land. They swung In at the
Fourth street pier at S:SO. There was
quite a gathering of West side loungers,
dockmen and men from the near-by
slaughter houses to witness the landing
of the British. A midshipman was in
command, and. beardless boy that he
was, he seemed proud of the distinc

on American soil. He formed his hand
ful of men in line and marched them
up and down the long pier, and finally
Ewung them out in a long picket line as
though he intended to hold the portion
of America that he had captured.
At 9 o'clock a naphtha launch, towing
three boats, all loaded with blue jackets
from the Concord, drew in along the
pier, and before the British middy
noticed it. Uncle Sam's men climbed
over the string piece of the wharf and
instantly fell into line. They marched
down one side of the pier while the
Britons stood at attention on the other
side. It was the first contact of the
foreigners with the home forces, and
there was no clash of arms. A few
minutes later the steamboat Mat
teawan landed 600 Britishers, ma
rines, infantry and sailors, at the
end of the pier. Commander
Bailey was in charge. With the Brit
ishers was the goat of the Magicieune,
decked with a royal red blanket. The
Myndert Starin landed the French sail
ors at Thirty-eighth Street pier at about
the same time. The Sam Sloan, with
United States marines from the Chicago,
Newark and Philadelphia, landed at
Fortieth street at 0:45. All of the men
formed ranks and marched to Forty
second street, where they took the
places assigned to them in the line. The
Ilussians, Italians and Hollanders land
ed at the piers just above Forty-second
street. A detachment of naval veterans
commanded by Cant. Osborn received
the admirals and senior officers of tha
ships at the foot of Forty-second street.
Carriages were in waiting, and the
mounted police acted as an escort to the

terfering with the work ot trimming the
buildings. West Forty-second street
presented the gayest appearance.
Nearly every house was festooned with
bunting. Just west of Sixth avenue a
big American flag was hung acros? the
street. At Madison square nearly every
large building was draped with the stars
and stripes and the emblems of the
visitors who took part in the parade. At
the corner of Fifth avenue and Wash
ington square a handsome display of
Hags was made. Along Broad
way the principal business houses
were brilliant with color, and
the classic front of the city
hall was covered with banners, gonfa
lons and streamers. Gov. Flower rode
at the head of the procession. A
platoon of mounted police cleared the
way. The governoi was followed by
details from the United States army aud
engineer corps. Then came the ad
mirals in carriages. The foreigners
were escorted by officers of our own

ball were Mayor Gilroy and nearly all
of the city officials. With him was
Gov. Russell, of Massachusetts, and

the committee of one hundred. It was
12:16 p. m. when the first live of mount
ed police turned into City Hall Dark.
Mayor Gilroy, Gov. Russell and other
members of the reviewing party stood
at the foot of the steps as tin* head of

Porter dismounted from the first car

were loudly applauded. Following

plause which greeted them was fully
as hearty as that which had preceded
them. Argentine's contingent was
not easily picked out, as they
carried only a small ilag with the name
of tlieir ship, the Ninth ot July, in
stead of tlieir national banner. The
march of the German bluejackets,
with the throwing ofeach foot forward
and bringing it down with force, at
tracted much attention. The trim,
swing of the Frenchmen, who came a
few minutes later, was a decided con
trast to that of the Germans. The for
eign bands played American national
airs, with variations new to the ears of
the reviewing party, but when they
struck up the tunes of their own coun
try, they were right at home.
and foreign officers on the city hall
steps commented upon the appearance
of the bluejackets of each nation as
they passed. It was pretty generally
conceded that our bluejackets made an
appearance equal to that of those of
any nation, and that the British ma
rines made the finest show of any of the
marines. Gov. Flower stood near Mayor
Gilroy during the review. On either
side was a long line of visiting admirals
and officers from foreign ships and our
own navy. The Massachusetts naval
reserves and our own marine
militia made a decided hit. The
precision of their marching, their
trim uniform and their attention to
business drew the attention of every
one. 'lhe British officers remarked oh
the appearance of our national guard.
As the Twenty-second and Seventh reg
iments went by with their straight
lines and clock-like movement there
were exclamations of surprise. One of
the officers said that his party was much
pleased at the show which our men
made. At 1:50 the last of the column
had passed, and the admirals and offi
cers of the visiting fleets entered their
carriages and were driven to the Wal
dorr, where they were the guests of the
city at luncheon. Gov. Flower and
Mayor Giiroy and a delegation of city
officials and members of the entertain
ment committees were present.
BUMPED HIS HEAD.
President Cleveland Meets With a
New York, April 25.— Despite the
fatiguing experiences of yesterday,
President Cleveland arose early this
morning-. At 8:30 the president and
members of the cabinet took breakfast
together. At 10 o'clock, Col. George W.
MeClellan. corporation counsel clerk,
and Comptroller Myers, who constituted
a committee to escort the president to
the reviewing stand, arrived, and fit
teen minutes later the president was
ready to depart. Carriages awaited the
party at the Fifth avenue entrance to
the hotel. An immense crowd was
gathered there, and the police had
no small difficulty in keeping
a passageway to the carriages.
When the president came out he was
greeted with cheers. He was the first
to enter the carriage. After he took his
seat he put his hand to the right of his
forehead above the ear, and when he
withdrew it the hand was covered with
blood. Mr. Cleveland, in entering the
carriage, had removed his hat, but not
bending low enough, had bumped his
head against a corner of the top of the
carriage, the back having been let
down. The president, on seeing the
blood, immediately left the carriage and
returned to the hotel. He was followed
by the cabinet and the members of the
escorting committee, who were in not
a little dismay at the mishap. The
victoria which was to carry the presi
dent was a shabby affair, and was drive
by a shabby, ordinary hack coachman.
In the hotel the president was imme
diately surrounded by the secretaries
and several of the ladies. The contusion
on his head bled profusely. Arnica was
immediately applied and a doctor sent
lor. ln a short time Dr. Stephen Burt
arrived, examined the wound and pro
nounced it not serious. Plasters were
applied and the blood washed away.
The president then announced himself
ready to go iv the carriage again. The
front of the top of the vehicle had
in the meantime also been let down as
the back had been. When the presi
dent again came out he was greeted
with cheers, long continued. He lifted
his hat to show that the wound he had
received "Was trilling. Mr. MeClellan,
Mr. Clark and Mr. Myers entered the
same carriage, In the next carriage
were Secretaries Gresham and Carlisle.
The last had Secretaries Smith and
Morton and Ambassador Bayard. The
party proceeded to the reviewing stand
at the city hall, the delay to the de
parture caused by the president's injury
being about twenty minutes. Secretary
of War Turnout remained with the
ladies of the cabinet, who viewed the
parade from the windows of the Vic
toria hotel until 11 o'clock, when they
left for the president's train in Jersey
The presidential party reached the
city hall reviewing stand at 11 o'clock,
but were obliged to leave the stand just
as the head of the column was coming
into sight, in order to catch the train at
Jersey City for Chicago. The party
walked down from the city hall through
Warren and West streets to the Penn
sylvania ferry at the foot of Cortlandt
street. A couple of policeman at the
head of the little body of plainly dressed
men gave the only touch of official
formality to the departure. Even then
no one recognized them till the party
reached the ferry entrance. President
Cleveland came first, arm-in-arm with
Perry Belmont, and showed no sign of
having been injured while entering his
carriage at the Victoria hotel. Behind the
president Secretaries Carlisle, Gresham,
Bissell, Smith and Morton walked
in double file. Two more policemen
brought up the rear. The party went on
board the boat and took seats in the
upper cabin. At the Pennsylvania sta
tion the party entered a special train
which was in waiting, and left for Chi
cago at 12:15 o'clock.

REDS MURDER EIGHT.
Navajo Indians Take the War
Path Against Colorado
Troops Asked by the Agent
to Prevent Further
Two Battles Already Fought,
in Which Eight Settlers
The Party Which Committed
the Outrages Composed
of 250 Bucks.
Denver, April 28.— The long thieat
ened war of the Navajo Indians against
the settlers of the country, in the vicin
ity of their lands, has come off at last,
and with it the death of eight settlers.
Such was the startling news received
this morning by Adjt. Gen. Kennedy.
At 9:45 o'clock the adjutant general re
ceived a telegram from Lieut. Plummer,
Indian agent of the Xavajoes, in which
he stated that the white had been mur
dered by the Indians, who are not at
war with the settlers, He declared that
the situation is a very critical one, and
asked that troops bo called out to pre
vent further bloodshed. The telegram
was addressed to Gov. Waite, but he is
out of the city, and the matter was re
ferred by Secretary Lorentz to the ad
jutant general. L. T. Plummer stated
that the people below Durango are in a
wild state of excitement, and grave
fears are entertained lest the Indians
continue their warfare along up the
valley, ln his message, the agent states
that two battles have been fought al
ready. The first early yesterday, wheu
Five Men Were Killed,
all settlers; while at another encounter
three more whites lost their lives, and
further bloodshed is anticipated.
The adjutant general forwarded the
information to the war department at
Washington, and It is not unlikely that
orders will be issued from that source
for the removal of the troops now quar
tered at Fort Logan. They can act out
side of the state, and would be more fit
for encounter than state troops with the
Indians. The adjutant general is in
clined to regard the situation with a
good deal of concern, although express
ing the belief that the trouble will not
extend very far north. He does not
know whether or not Gov. Waite will
order the state guard to the front, but
thought he would do so. He declined
to give copies of the telegrams received
by him and sent by him, or to allow any
one to see them, stating that it was con
trary to orders. In speaking of the
affair he said that there are 250 bucks
who are raising the disturbance.
"They are all mounted and equipped,"
said he, "with the best repeating rifles,
and have ample supplies for a long war.
The are a bad lot, and
Revel In Plunder and Murder.
"There has been ill-feeling among
them for a long time, and it has at last
come to a head. The settlers down in
that country and the Indians never
could get along in peace. The Indians
are continually plundering and stealing
from the whites, who have submitted to
the thefts until the past few days. The
trouble was precipitated by the resist
ance of the whites to the depredations
of a band of warriors who raided the
stock of cattlemen. They drove off a
large herd of cattle, which they took to
the mountains. This so incensed the
stockmen that they organized a
large posse of cowboys and went to
recover the cattle. The Indians fled on
the approach of the cowboys at first,
and the cattlemen were rejoicing at
what they took for a very easy victory,
and, after they had secured the cattle,
started to return to their ranches. Tbey
had proceeded but a very short distance,
however, when they were attacked from
the flank as they were pasing through a
shallow canyon by the entire band of
250. A desperate encounter followed In
which live cowboys were killed and it is
believed a number of Indians. The
red men, of course, had the advantage,
and from tlieir vantage points above
their adversaries fought with telling
effect upon the cattlemen, who were
finally repulsed. They took with them
a portion of the herd they had recovered
and retreated. The Indians by this
time were thoroughly aroused and

some 12,003 square miles in the north
western part of New Mexico and North
eastern Arizona, and extends up to the

ou the war path. The band of 250
started from the reservation over in
Arizona, crossed the line into New
Mexico, going due east to a town called

river, and are now in that vicinity."
A dispatch from Durango says:

SHE WAS NOT ILL-
Real Facts of Mrs. Cleveland's Re
turn to Washington.
Washington*, April 28.—Misinforma
tion regarding Mrs. Cleveland's pro
gramme at New York yesterday was re
sponsible for the reports that she had
been taken ill during the naval review,
and compelled to return to Washington.
She came back in the best of spirits, and
this morning is in her usual good health.
The facts in the matter are these: When
the details of the president's trip to New
York and Chicago were arranged early
in the week, one of them was that Mrs.
Cleveland, inasmuch as she was not
going to accompany the president to
Chicago, should return to Washington
on the train over the Pennsylvania
road, leaving at 5 o'clock Thurs
day afternoon. The hour for the review
having been fixed at 10:30 a. m., it was
supposed there would be time after the
president's party left the Dolphin to re
turn to the hotel and thence drive to the
station. The postponement of the re
view from 10:20 to 1 p. m. necessitated
a change in Mrs. Cleveland's pro
gramme. Instead of returning to the
hotel. Admiral Gherardi provided a tug
to take Mrs. Cleveland, Mrs. Bissell,
wife of the postmaster general, and
Private Secretary Thurber from the
Dolphin at 4 o'clock, and carry them
direct to the Pennsylvania railroad pier
in Jersey City. Tne baggage, which
consisted of hand satchels only, was
taken from the hotel by Mrs. Cleveland's
maid, and received by them on the
train. The party traveled in a private
car attached to the regular train, and
arrived in Washington according to pro
gramme at about 11 o'clock.
BRILLIANT CAP SHEAF.
Naval Review Wound Up With a
Banquet to the Foreigners.
New Yokk, April 28.— The chamber

incident to the naval review. Among
the invited guests present were the
British, French, Russian, Brazilian and
Argentine admirals,the three American
admirals, the commanders of the Ger
man and Dutch vessels and the cap
tains and flag lieutenants of all the
vessels in the fleet. These were essen
tially the guests of honor. The banquet
was held in the main dining room of the
Hotel Waldorf, fronting on Fifth ave
nue. Covers were laid for about 400.
When it is mentioned that th* price set
for the dinner was *25 a plate it will
readily be understood that the dinner
was worthy of the occasion. The scene
was a brilliant one. The oratory was
short, witty and pointed.
S Proposed Plan to Test Its Consti
Washington, April 28.— A plan, for
suspending tho sugar bounty without
waiting for the slow action of congress
has been suggested to President Cleve
land and may be adopted. . The plan
consists of a simple order from the
secretary of tho treasury to his subor
dinates to draw no more warrants and
make no payments on account of sugar
bounties. Such action in a single test
case would be sufficient to carry the
matter to the courts aud secure a de
cision from the supreme court of the
United States upon the naked question,
whether the payment of gratuities to
private individuals out of the money re
ceived by taxation upon the people was
within the power of "congress under the

not yet considered the subject carefully,
but he will probably ask Attorney-
General Olney for an opinion as to
whether the bounties are constitutional,
and whether it is within the power of

Stillwater, Minn., April 23.— 1t is
stated this evening that tomorrow James
C. Nethaway, late Democratic candi
date for attorney general, will bring a
sensational suit against William R.
Merriam, ex-governor of Minnesota, on
behalf of Thomas O'Connor, a life con
vict in the state penitentiary. The
damages asked will be §25,000. The
story leading up to the suit is one of the
most pathetic in the state's history.
Eighteen years ago Thomas O'Connor
and Thomas Kane.two convivial compan
ions, had a rough-and-tumble fight near
Montgomery, Le Sueur county, and
Kane's skull was crushed. O'Connor
was tried and sentenced to spend the
remainder of his days behind prison
walls. Two years ago friends of the
notorious Younger brothers, the Mis
souri outlaws, secured the passage
through the legislature of a law permit
ting the governor to release life prison
ers on their promise to leave the state
of Minnesota forever. Under this law
the governor, who was then William R.
Merriam, refused to set free the
Younger brothers, but he did order the
release of Thomas O'Connor. The lat
ter left the state at once, but his wife,
who still lived near Montgomery, felt
very ill and, lying on her deathbed, ex
pressed a desire to see her husband
again. He came, and, while she lingered
between life and death, some one in
formed the officers of Le Sueur
county, who seized O'Connor and
sent word to the governor of his
capture. Gov. Merriam ordered O'Con
nor re-incarcerated, and he began again
his life sentence in prison. The case
was carried to the supreme court of the
state, .and yesterday a deeislon was
rendered to the effect that" O'Connor
must be released on the ground that
Gov. Merriam had no right to act until
the case had been examined by the
court in which the prisoner had been
tried or by a higher court. An order
was this evening served on Warden
W'olfer at Stillwater, and O'Connor will
depart a free man tomorrow. The $25,
--000 suit against ex-Gov. Merriam will
be for false imprisonment.

Sioux Falls, S. D., April 28.— A

lawyers here.appeared before the grand
jury, and, having insisted on the dis
trict attorney leaving the room, pro
ceeded to charge the latter with gross
impartiality and malfeasance in office.
The charge grows out of the prosecu
tion of Charles E. Bowman for per
jury. Bowman lost 5400 in a gambling
bouse in the city, and having paid in a
check, stopped the check and after
ward made affidavit that he had never

HANDY WITH A RAZOR.
Why Robert C. Hubbard Secured
Sioux Falls, S. D., April 28.-An
other sensational divorce case was de
cided in Judge Aikens' court today. It
was the suit of Robert C. Hubbard, a
prominent and wealthy merchant of
Kingston, N. V., against his wife, Eliza
beth. The defendant did not appear iv
the case, but the plaintiff put in volumi
nous evidence. He alleged that the
marriage toon place in Kingston Oct. 0,
1870, and that five children had resulted
front it. Hubbard swears that his wife
was of an exceedingly jealous disposi
tion, and endeavored to ruin his charac
ter by making all kinds of disreputable
and unjust charges against him. She
also threatened on numerous occasions
to kill him, and once he awoke to find
her leaning over the bed with a razor
open, ready to cut his throat. He gets
the custody of the minor children.
GLUED TO THK ICE.
Wagon Loads of Wild Geese Capt-
nretl by Farmers.
Wheaton, Minn.. April -At Lake
Traverse, a few miles west of Wheaton,
this state, says the Gazette, hundreds of
ducks and geese were discovered frozen
into the thin layer of ice that formed
during the night. Many were dead, but
a large number were alive held prison
ers by the tips of their wings, unable to
free themselves on account of being be
numbed with cold. Many were captured
by farmers living adjacent to the lake.
About twenty-live or thirty Indians
from the Sisseton reservation seemed to
have anticipated something of the kind,
and were at the lake early and captured
nearly a wagon box fuli of the helpless
waterfowl. A fourteen-year-old boy
from this village succeeded in capturing
150 ducks and half a dozen geese. Dur
ing the storm a farmer driving along
the shore of the lake killed a number
with a whip, the birds being huddled up
in large numbers along the shore, too
exhausted by the cold to make any at
tempt to escape.

Hot Springs. S. D., April 28.-The
Keystone Land and Cattle company, of
which Hon. 11. A. Goddard, of this

cattle, about 8,000 head, passes into the
hands of Humphrey & Steuger, the par
ties who have the contract for supplying
beef to the government for its Indians
on the Pine Ridge reservation. This is
the last of the once many large cattle
companies doing business in this coun
try to retire from the range, and within
a few months the small cattle men and
grangers will have the range of this
county all to themselves. The amount
of money involved in the deal is in the
neighborhood of §235,000. This is the
largest cattle deal ever made in the
Black Hills country.
Obstinate Saw Mill Men.
New Richmond, Wis., April 28.—
strike of the saw mill men continues.
President John £. Glover, of the Wil

mills are affected by the strike, has
made practically all the concessions de

fuse to return to work. The company
has done away with the obnoxious con
tract, and while wanting the men to
work eleven instead of ten hours, it
proposes to pay for the extra hour. An
effort will now be made to start the
mills Monday next with new crews.
The men's only excuse for holding out
now is that they will not work over ten
hours a day, and they insist upon mak
ing up their crews.

cial Pennsylvania railroad train bearing
President Cleveland and party arrived
in West Philadelphia shortly after 2
o'clock this afternoon. The train was
quickly transferred from the New York
division to the main line by passing
through th 9 freight yards, and after
engines had been changed it left
for Chicago. The train attracted
no especial attention, for the occu
pants were known to but few, the
plan having been carried out so as to
avoid a demonstration. At 2:30 o'clock,
when the change of engines was com
pleted, the train pulled out for Chicago.

airs. Potter Palmer Will Drive
the Golden Nail in the Woman's
Chicago, April 28.— The Sunday
opening question was vigorously dis-
cussed this afternoon by the committee
on judiciary for the world's fair na
tional commission. Their decision will
not be made until next Tuesday. The
advocates of Sunday opening are appar
ently In a majority of the committee,
but there is an exceedingly strong oppo
sition, headed by Commissioner Massey,
of Delaware, which is confident of
maintaining the status quo, taking the
stand that congress has settled the
whole matter, and they do not wish the
commission to go on record as opposing
the body which created it. On the other
hand, Commissioner St. Clair, of West
Virginia, is making a strong effort to
have the judiciary committee report
favorably on Sunday opening, and, it is
claimed, with some prospect of success.
lt is announced tonight that Mrs.
Potter Palmer will drive a golden nail
into the Woman's building at the
world's fair tomorrow afternoon -to
signify the completion of the building.
In presiding at the meetings of the
board of lady managers Mrs. Palmer
has become expert with the gavel, and
her friends tniinc that the handsome
lady president will be able to hit the
nail on the head and drive it into the
arch of the assembly room with exactly
three well-directed blows of the ham
mer. The exercises will be simple.
Mrs. Eliza Richards, of Montana,
will deliver the precious nail in
its silver casket, and also a gold
and silver hammer, and Mrs. Palmer
will thereupon proceed with her own
fair hands to finish the woman's build
ing herself. As a matter of fact, the
golden nail will be immediately with
drawn and returned to its place in the
breastpin of which it forms a part, aud
the pin will then be presented to Mrs.

No piano, unless made by a firm mak
ing an exhibition at the world's fair,
will be allowed in any of the public
buildings on the gtounds. The national
commissioner so decided today. The
commissioner also issued an order
requiring Director General Davis to
cause to be removed all pianos
now in any of the buildings which ate
made by nor.-exhibitors. This is the
outcome of the trouble between the
iiano exhibitors and Director of Music
Thomas and Paderewski, who have
been insisting upon using a piano
made by a linn that refused to take
part in the fair. The committee
appointed by the national commission
ers to investigate the affair had sent a
request to Mr. Thomas to appear before
it and give his side of the case today.
He did not appear nor make and
reply and the committee was at
a loss to understand his action until
a committee from the local di
rectory appeared as his representative.
This committee argued that Thomas
had a right to use any piano he desired.
The piano committee then called in the
piano exhibitors and heard both sides
together, and made its report to the
national commissioners. It recom-
mended that the commission order all
pianos for use in concert or musical ex
positions during the fair, not manufact
ured by an exhibitor or pianos for
award, be immediately removed
from the grounds, and that tho
further introduction of such
pianos be interdicted and the director
general be required to execute the pro
visions and conditions of the report.
What Theodore Thomas and Paderew
ski will do now that the commission has
forbidden the use of pianos by non
exhibitors remains to be seen. It is
claimed by some of their friends that
they will "withdraw from the fair aud
take no further part in it.
