The Chicago, Burlineton & Quiocj

council of Molioe an ordinance to lay a
witch from the main track east of the
Rock Island limits across Molioe avenue
to Sylvan water. In laving the track
whi.h runs north on the street, which
divides the two cities, the property hold

as no ordinance bad been granted by the

were induced to cease, and the police
retired from the scene. Toward morn

again resumed work, and Officer Boland
promptly put him under arrest. To
day everything is quiet, though the
railroad folks aver that the street
is entirely io Moline, and that Rock Is

There is much indignation felt among

The Aitocs made a misstatement last
night regarding the republican caucusses
tor which it humbly apologizes. The
caucuses are tonight, which happily for
some and unfortunately for others, ad

has been plenty of it today. In the
upper end of the county there came very
nearly being a violent rupture yesterday
In the townships of Port Byron, Zuma,

Improbable that all these town

In the city. Donaldson, Harris. Atkin

best of it so far.
Thk Abgus, as a champion of fair
play, regrets to note the partiality with
which the Union handles the state sen a
torial candidacies. Instead of adopting
that neutrality which would oninfluence
the county convention in an expression
of its choice, we are sorry to see our con
temporary biased in its opinions. The
Argus stated some time since that the
Lnion had been instructed by its dicta
tors to oppose both Crawford and Co
zad for the senate, and throw all us in
fluence in favor of a Rock Island or Mo
line man. Not twing able to get an
avowed candidate here, the Union pro
ceeded to expatiate npon the qualifica
tions which W. R. Moore, of Molioe, pes',
sessed for the place. This morning it
gives the Moline gentleman another
"lift" by publishing a long list of names
attached to a petition, asking for his
nomination for state senator. This, we
bold, is highly prejudicial to Messrs.
Crawford and Cozad, who are denied
similar privileges, and are therefore com
pelled to labor at a decided disadvantage.

Washington Citt, June 7. TheTelief
is becoming more and more pronounced
among the members of the house that the
silver bill adopted by the Republican cau
cus and now being debated in the house,
will become a law in its present form,
with the possible exception that the sec
tion providing for the purchase of 14,500,
000 of bullion per month will be changed
so that it will provide for the purchase of
4,500,000 ounces. The feature of the bill
that will be the source of much contro
versy, it is believed, is that providing that
the holder of a bullion certificate may de
mand ita redemption in either coin or
bullion, with discretionary power given
to the secretary of the treasury to refuse
to redeem in bullion.
tVlndora' Idea Will Be Retained.
There is a constantly growing belief that
the bill will pass the house intact, but that
the bullion feature will be struck out in
the senate. This will necessitate a con
ference between the two houses, which, it
is believed, will finally agree to leave the
bullion feature in the bill. The bullion
feature is advocated by Secretary Win
dom, who, of course, represents the views
of the president, and the senate will be al
most obliged to agree to it, if the bill is
to receive the executive signature.
It la the Lending Question.
The silver debate again occupied almost
the total attention of both bouses yester
day. In the house Land of Minnesota ar
gued that an addition to the circulation
would advance prices and lift the agricul.

age, but would vote forthe caucus bill as
a relief in the right direction. Walker of
Massachusetts said he was sick of the rot
that was talked in the house. Ixw prices
did not cause business depression.
and there never was a time when it took
so little labor for a farmer to pay his
debts.- Prices had been going down for
100 years and the demonetization of silver
had not had the slightest effect on the fall.
Money was only an incident in economy.
The world wonld not suffer an iota if all
the money were wiped out in one day.
Opinlona of Other Member.
Kerr of Iowa said the caucus bill would
result in remnnetization, and was a long
step in the right direction. Townsend of
Colorado would be satisfied with nothing
but free coinage; neither would Dorsey of
Nebraska, who condemned Secretary Vin-
dom for not coining the maximum per
month under the Bland act. He would
have none of bullion redemption. McRae
of Arkansas wanted immediate free coin.
age and said that Cleveland was all wrong
in his policy in regard to silver. Parrett
of Indiana favored bi-metaUism; Ijine of
Illinois opposed the pending bill; Shively
of Indiana declared that legislation had
depressed the value of silver; Hoi man gave
bis version of the history of demonetiza
tion, and by the time a few more members
had spoken it was 11 p. nx, when the de
bate was adjourned.
Plnmb Talk In the Senate.
In the senate Plumb was the principal
speaker, and he said that the total amount
of money in circulation in this country
was not more to-day than t.V)O,0OO.0O0. He
demanded the coinage of all the silver
mined in the United States. He got in a
drive at Sherman by quoting that senator
as saying some time ago that gold and sil
ver had been created by the Almighty as
money, and that such they bad been from
the beginning of time. "What God has

THE CEDAR KEYS TROUBLE.
A Letter from the President That I
Writ in Very Plain English.
Washington City, June 7. The presi
dent yesterday responded to the senate
resolution of May 36 requesting informa
tion concerning the alleged landing of an
armed force from the United States reve
nue cutter McLane, at Cedar Keys, Fla.,
and the alleged entry of the houses of
citizens by force and their alleged pursuit
of citizens of the United States in the sur
rounding country. "It will be observed,"
ays the president, "that the United
States collector of customs at Cedar Keys
had been driven from his office and from
the town, and the administration cl the
customs laws of the United States at that
port suspended by the violent demonstra
tions and threats of one Cottrell, the
mayor of the place, assisted by his town
Protection or I'nlted States Officials.
"If it had been necessary, as I do not
think it can be in any case, for a United
States officer to appeal to the local author
ities for immunity from violence in the
exercise of his duties, the situation at
Cedar Keys did not suggest or encourage
such an appeal, for those to whom the ap
peal would have been addressed were
themselves the lawless instruments of the
threatened violence. The means used in
this case were, in my opinion, lawful and
necessary, and the officers do not seem to
have intruded upon any private right in
executing the warrants placed in their
A (.rtm Commentary for a Fact.
"That the officers of the law should not
have the full sympathy of every good clti
aen in t heir efforts to bring these men to
merited punishment is the matter of sur
prise and regret. It is a very grim com
mentary upon the condition of social or
der at Cedar Keys that only a woman, who
had, as she says in her letter, no son or
husband who could be made the victim of
his malice, had the courage to file charges
against this man, who was then holding a
subordinate place in the customs service."
Baffled by the Citizens.
Accompanying the president's letter are
papers showing that the United States
marshal and the officers of the revenue
cutter McLane were victimized by the peo
ple, who foiled them several times in their
efforts to capture Cottrell, and that no
bouses were searched, except where per
mission was cheerfully granted.
BLAIR'S COMPOSITE PENSION BILL-
It Include the Per Diem, Dependent,
and Disability Scheme.
Washington Citt, June 7. Blair intro
duced a pension bill in the senate yesterday
whiiji looks like it might cover the whole
ground of the controversy. It provides a
service pension for those who served sixty
days in the war of the rebellion, or any In
dian war prior to 1866, of 1 cent for each
day of service, monthly not to be more
than $12 or less than $6 a month in addi
tion to any other pension granted. No
service pension is to be granted to any
person whose annual Income at the time
of making application is more than 11,300.
Take la tha Disabled.
' The bill also provides a disability pen
lion of $8 to $12 a month, according to the
degree of disability. The service pension
Is to be paid to a widow, minor children,
or dependent father or mother, without
regard to the cause of death. 'be rate
for minor children is to be mcrsad by $4
Instead of $2 a month, and the pe asion of
a minor child who is an idiot or Jisabled
is to continue through life. No attorney
is to charge more than $10 for prosecuting
an application for pension under the law.

SHAWASO, Wis., June 7. The uprising
of Indians on the Keshena reservation has
reached such a stage that it is believed
nothing less than bloodshed will bring the
reds to their senses. Agent Kelsey, the
newly appointed government official, to
gether with Special Agent Lewis and In
spector Cisncy, left the city yesterday for
the scene of the outl reak. Agent Kelsey
is extremely reticent, but it is generally
Understood that troops will be forthcoming
from Fort Snelling if the Indians cannot
be reconciled to more peaceable Kuethods.
The reds aie generally well armed, and
avow their intention of repelling any in
vasion ot armed forces.
What the Trouble Is About.
The cause of the Keshena trouble is the
change of agents at the reservation. Agent
Jennings, who was appointed by Presi
dent Cleveland, seems to be most popular
with the Indians, who refuse to acknowl
edge the authority of President Harrison's
appointee, Mr. Kelsey.. The latter visited
the agency early in the week to assume
charge of affairs, but Wednesday night
was peremptorily ordered off the reserva
tion by a party of bucks, who, pretty well
filled up with tire water, were inclined to
lie ugly. Kelsey soon ascertained that
discretion would le the better part of val
or, and left Keshena, coming to this city.
After counsel with other government" offi
cials a return was decided upon, and the
party left as stated.
Charges Against the Ex-Agent.
Thursday the Indians had a powwow,
and it is understood they decided to stand
by Agent Jennings. Tbe latter holds that
the government property has not been re
ceipted for and he will not vacate. He
has been suspended by Inspector Cisney.
Opinions differ here as to whether or not
Jennings is to be blamed for the trouble,
but the ex-agent is pretty generally con
demned for his action in the matter. It is
boldly stated that Jennings has incited
the Indians to keep the new officials out,
and as Jennings is now at Keshena, and
in practical control of the reds, his pro
ceedings can hardly be upheld by his
Itcen Done That Wj Before.
The Indians have evidently been led to
believe that the new officials will adminis
ter affairs detrimental to their f interests,
and thev fear that thev will be robbed of
their pine and lands. Who has instilled
this feeling can only lie conjectured. A
council will be held at Keshena to-day,and
a final effort will be made to make the
Indians understand that their present
lawlessness cannot but result disastrously
CHEYENNES ON THE WAR PATH.
Wrought to Frenzy by the Medicine Men
A Cattleman Killed.
FortKeogh, Mont., June 7. There are
great fears of a general uprising of the
northern Chevenne Indians. They have
been wrought into a frenzy by the medi
cine men of their own and other tribes
and are now ready to go on the war path.
For months the medicine men have been
predicting the coming of a new messiah
who is to lead the Indians into a war
gainst the whites and by his miraculous
power succeed in exterminating the whole
of the pale faced hosts.
Waylaid, Riddled and Scalped.
Word has reached here of the murder of
a cattleman within twenty miles of
Tongue River agency. It is reported that
he was waylaid near a slongh in which his
herd was grazing, riddled with bullets
and scalped. Settlers in the valley be
tween the Powder and Big Horn rivers
have appealed to Indian Agent Upshaw
at the Tongue River agency for protec
tion, and he has notified tbe secretary of
the interior that troops are urgently need
ed to discipline the belligerent reds. It is
expected that troops will be sent from
here and tort Custer.

Summers, proprietor of the well-known
English school at Tokio, patronized by
the nobility, was driving in one of the
leading thoroughfares of that city with
his wife, when the carriage of the dowa
ger empress, mother of the mikado, es
corted by cavalry passed. It is customary
for every" one to uncover when a member
of the royal family passes, and Mr. Sum
mers reined his horse beside the road and
took off his hat, but applaced it after the
royal carriage had passed. One of the

would strike the hat, but by accident it
struck Summers on the head.
The Press Incites to Outrage.
The soldier was arrested and court-martialed,
but the people misunderstood the
affair, and the native press took advan
tage of the occasion to incite the populace
against the foreigners. As an outcome of
the excitement the native students or shoz
made repeated raids upon Mr. Summers'
school, and so annoyed him that he was
compelled to leave. He sailed for Eng
