! of November, the republican press of this
; congressional district hare endeavored to
; eiplain and enslvze the reason for the
' dire defeat that befell their party on that
occasion. At first tlieso editors were so
astonished and chagrined at the unex
pected calamity that no solntlon of tbe
problem was attempted. They simply
looked at toe figures la a dszed sort o'
way, and "sawed wood." Gradually,
however, tbe enormity of tbe disaster
dawned upon tbem, and tbe necessity of
giving some explanation became ap
parent. Tbe tak was a disagreeab'e one
and devoid of a single consoling feature.

About noon the criers of tbe different
bands called out to tbe Indiana to strike
their teota and round up their horses and
move to the uew camping ground. The
change was made within an hour and a
half. Then it was discovered that nearly
every tepee sheltered a carbine or a Win

The stampede which followed was al
most instantaneous. Squaw aod pap

while tbe bucks hastily mounted their

and go back to camp. This manoeuvre
executed, the village was soon re peopled

who draw rations here are encamped
around the post. It ia a part of the plan
of Agent Royer to reTuae to issue beef on

It may be that this will settle the mat

not certain whether it is treachery or obe

Washington Citt, Nov. St. -Nearly ev
ery train arriving from the west brings to
the capital one or more members ot tbe
Fifty-first congress, the last session of
which will convene on Monday next. By
the middle of this week tbe capital city
will have settled Itself for the nsnal gai

company the short sessions. Work suf
ficient ' to keep the respective houses
bnsily engaged seven hours each day un
til spr.ng has been mapped out by differ
ent statesmen who have been interviewed
upon their arrival here. The indications
warrant the assertion that the pension
appropriation bill wilt be the most earnest
ly debated measure of the session, owing
to tbe great proportions it is reaching.
A Imoeratlc Extra Sessioa.
There are apparently many Democrats
in tne nouse of representative who desire
an extra session of the Fifty-second con
gress, and believe that It is policy to work
to I hat end. Leading Republicans stand
ready to encourage such a move on the
part of the.r opponents, of course with no
kindly expectation as to its effect on the
Democracy, speculation runs very high
on either side of the question, and almost
any opinion sought may be obtained with
pleoty of statesmen ready to father Ik Tbe
silver men are determiued if possible to
force through a frw coinage bill. They
are strongly impressed with their aliilitv
to 'accomplish the work in the senate,.
wnerw tbey will bare the assistance of the
new senators from Idaho, Montana, and
Mills Talks of Retiring.
Congressman Mills arrived in Washing
ton City late Satnrday night. On the
speakership question he is somewhat ret
iceot, merely remarking tbat be baa de
termined to retire from publie life at the
close of the next congress, and says that
if be should be elected speaker be would
feel that bis twenty years ot service in lbs
house had been rounde-lon! witht'ie high
est possi tile honors; bit if he fails, be
will cot lose ao hour's rest.
What the bentscrate Will Do.
Of the probable action of the Demo
cratic majority in the next house. Mills
said: 'The Democratic bouse In the
Fifty-second congress will meet the de
mand for money by passing a silver free
coinage bill, which the senate may or may
not agree to. and which, if it ever reach
th White House, will probably be vetoed
by President Harrison. That is all the
legislation which we shall attempt in
that line. It Is idle to talk of the sub
treasury bill. The D.-mocratic party can
never aa long as it exi-ts which will be
aa long as it is true lo strict construction
it ideas endorse such an unconstitu
tional scheme. -
Kvery Man for HlmselL
"Mr. Tiiden, in hia letter to the Ircqmds
clnb, stated the, principle of the Demo
cratic party in one setemtr: The general
government should do nothing for the
state which the slate can do for itaelf,
and no government should no anvtliinif
for the individual which he can do for
himself. We ought never to get away
from that doctrine. The Democratic
party believes that the citizen is able to
take care of himself and run hia own
finances. We propose to let bim do it,
and keep as far away from paternalism
Will Pares the Tarlir Issux.
"W'hen Iho Democratic party bas con
trol of tbe house it will reduce the tariff
on the necessaries of life. Of course the
bill will not pass a Hepnblicau senate,
but we will redeem our promises and
force the issue on t hat J ine nntil we get
the senate ami president. If the Repub
lican party persist in legislating against
the common people and iu favor of trusts
and combinations, the revolt will be still
greater next time."
lrops Into Preslletlons,
Mills predicts tbe nomination of Cleve
land by acclamation. He says that in
New York the cause of tariff reform has
been preached in every school bouse by
hond reds of young and ent busiastic Demo
crats who "are not afraid of tbe devil,
and the politicians will be noable to
stem tbe tide. He regards Blaine as the
strongest rn -n on the Republican side,
but admits that Harrison may secure a
renomination. "If he does," said Mills,
"be will go over the falls ot Niagara aa
sure aa fate."
Lodge's View Vance's Chanee.
Representative Lodge, of Massachusetts,
is of tbe opinion that tbe bouse will cer
tainly pass an apportionment bill and
that the senate will complete the work of
tbe majority by passing tbe elections bill.
He thiuks Mills will win tbe speakership
contest. Many Republicans entertain
Senator Vance, who had so much
trouble because of bis opposition to the
sub-treasury bill, ts qnoted as having said
that be will gladly co-operate with any
friend of tbe Dies sura in congress to put
the idea of the bill into a shape conforma
ble with the constitution. It ia believed
tbat this slaU-meut will facilitate tbe
closing of tbe chasm between Vance and
tbe North Carolina aenatorship.
