2^ Hopeful Jndlan Agency Reports.
The annual report of M. D. Gallagher,
agent at Pine Ridge, is given out from the
Indian bureau at Washington.. The num
ber of Indians at the reservation is 6,611
number of aores of the reservation tillablo,
400,000 number of acres cultivated, 4,420
number of stock of all kinds, 20,000.
There were 273 births to 256 deaths during
the year. The amount of land left to the
reservation under the Sioux bill is 2,000,
000 acres—more than enough to give 320
acres to each Indian, man, woman and child
on the reservation. The crojis have been
late and are rather poor. The Indians loft
the crops to meet the Sioux commission
ers, and the oattle on the reservation de
stroyed a great part of them. The agent
has nad very little trouble with the Sioux,
and he believes tho Ogallala ban 1 at his
agency are superior to all other bands of
Sioux. Groat improvement has been made
iu the Obeguenes at this agency, and it is
believed the Sioux will time become
6elfBuptorting. 'Hie police have boon
very efficient, and aided in preserving or
der. There is a great deal of complaint
made becauso of the practice of allowing
voting bucks to be takon to exhibit in wild
west shows and circuses. Tho agent rec
ommends that it be stopped. Pine Ridge
has been a favorable place for securing
wild west material. The stock of the In
dian is now branded by individual brands
instead of by bands, and each Indian owns
his own stock. The agent recommends
that sheep be purchased for the Indians.
There are three missions—Catholic, Epis
copal and Presbyterian. The Ogallala in
dustrial boarding school is a success, there
being 190 scholars enrolled and only rojin
for 200. More school buildings are rec
raended. 'J he Indians want the reserva
tion surveyed and tho boundaries defined,
so that no dispute may arise between the
whites and ludians, and that trespassers
may bo kept off the Indian lands.
John W. Cramsie, ageut at Fort Totten,
submits his eighth annual report for the
Devil's Lake and Turtle Mountain Indians.
Tho Turtle Mountain tribe aro wanderers
and are sometimes on tho reservation and
sometimes in Manitoba. 'ihey do little
farming and are in a state far from civil-,
izntiou. At Turtle Mountain there are
1,340 Indians. The number of births were
fifty and deaths ninety-six. There are
8,000 acres of tillable land on the reserva
tion, 1,814 of which are under cultivation.
At Devil's Lake there aro 1,016 Indians.
There were forty-nine births and fifty-four
deaths. There are 46,000 acres of tillable
land on the reservation aud 5,050 are cul
tivated. There are 330 families living on
individual tracts, but no allotments nave
been made. The crops this year have
been destroyed by tho drought. Better
agency buildings are asked for, and ma
terial for improving the Indian dwellings.
The Indians want the land surveyed and
allotments made.
James McLaughlin, agent at Standing
Rock, reports 4,110 Indians at that agency,
and that they are living in 1,000 dwelling
houses on individual lands, but which have
not yet been allotted. There are three
missions at the Standing Rock, Catholic,
Episcopal, Congregational. There have
been 5,000 acres cultivated during the
year, and 1,000 rods of fencing built. The
new division under the Sioux bill leaves
665,000 aores of tho reservation in
North Dakot, and 1,797,000 acres in South
Dakota. The lands aro best adapted for
grazing, and consequently an increasing
interest in stock raising. There aro nine
government schools and two mission
schools, with a total enrollment of 593.
There are eighty-two children in school off
the reservation. The Indians want sur
veys. Tho heads of families are already
located on individual claims, but allot
ments can not be made unless surveys are
mndo.^:^
jThat Capital Question.
North Dakotans ought not to find fault
with the manner in which their capital and
other state institutions were located by the
constitutional convention, says a South
Dakota oorrsepondent. Tbe question is
settled with them—it iB an accomplished
fact. It is different in the South. It re
quires the fourth heat to win tbe prizo.
The first was in 1885 the second comes
this year next year there will be a rote on
its permanent looation, which won't better
it so in 1892 there will be another test of
strength upon the question. The South
Etate congratulates the North state upon
its Jiappy escape from the capital contest,
and hopes that the South may never see
another such wrangle, which iB liable to
result in heart burnings and recriminations
Innumerable.
Wedding of Prominent Pierrettes.
Miss Cassis Wells, daughter of \V. S.
Wells, proprietor of the Wells addition to
Pierre and a loading oitizen of the- city,
was married to W. A. Stanley, bookkeeper
in the Traders' bank. Tbe ceremony was
EOQse,
erformed in the parlors of the Wells
Rev. Dr. Blackburn, president of
Pierre university, officiating. Only mem
bers of the family and several friends were
present. Mr. Stanley and his bride left
for a six weeks' tnp east, where they will
visit his relations at points in New York.

TII15KE IS ACTUAL STARVATION
Tlio Spring Valley Situation in Illinois as
Serious as Can Wull »«.
Henry D. Lloj-d, of Chicago, has been
investigating the condilion of the desti
tute miners at Spring Valley, aud makes
an appeal through the press in their be
half. He says: "There is greater need
than ever of help for these people. There
are thousands there suffering for food,
clothing and medicine. Tho most of the
sufferers are children. Thoro aro familios
where adults and children are grievously
sick and without medical attencfance and
medicines, because there is no money to
pay for them." Tho men at Spring Val
ley, Mr. Lloyd says, aro not strikers. They
are victims of two lockouts. Last Christ
mas a thousand of them were shut o&t of
work by an order closing part of the
mines. For tho rest of the winter the
other miners di\:ded their work with theso
unfortunates. April 29, without previous
notice, all tbe miners woro told to take
away thoir tools and tho mines were
closed. hey had no thought or plan of
stiikiug they were not even given the
chance of working for lower wages. \V.
IJ.
Scott, of Erie, finally made his offer to
them of a reduction of wagesfrom'JO cents
a ton to tho equivalent of 55 cents or less,
couplod with a demand that they givo up
their labor unions. Before the lock-out
thoy earnoaccording to their figures,
about $30 a month. According to the
figures given by on official of the company
they earned about S43. These were their
earnings at 00 cents a tun what they
would bs at 55 cents mav bo easily com
puted.
"That a community of 5,000 persons in
tho stale of Illinois is iu the throes of
starvation." Kdils the appeal, "and lias been

ROCK THAT J)ON'T K&DUKK.
A J*ccnUai* Caso of Nucutaln Foundations
In Wisconsin.
There was a remarkable occurrence at
tho mills of the Combined Locks Paper
comnany, at Combined Locks, five miles
below Appleton, Wis., a few days since.
From some unknown cause there was an
upheaval of the rock upou which the mills
are located, throwing tho mill walls out of
plumb, cracking a great wall of stono aud
cemont twenty foot thick, and makii a
saddle-back several hundred feet long and
six inchos high in ihe bed-rock beneath
tho mills. An artesian well 20.J foot away
on the bluff has dried up. Tho damage
to the mill and ma hiuery will amount to
several thousand dollars. A p&niu oc
curred among the mill operators at tho
timo of the bhake-up, but nobody was
hurt in the stampede.

of cities throughout tho country of over
15,000 inhabitants, about 175 in all, and
to the secretaries of 300 boards of trades

Weekly Huso Hull Kovlew,
The only change that took place in the
Western association pennnnt chaso duriug
tho past iweok was Milwaukee crowding
St. Joe out of sixth place. Tho Browors,
howover, aro not yot contont and are com
ing nt a paco that threatens to carry them
past Denver and well upon Minneapolis'
heels. So far as the lenders aro concerned,
thoir positions are relatively the sama as
thoy woro since tho last review. Omaha
appears to be in the van to stay. She has
nearly 0110 huudrod points the best of St.
i'aul, aud is playing a maguifioent winning
gaino of ball. The clubs are now trailing
along in this order: Omaha, 720 St.
I'aul, 025 Sioux City, 505 Minneapolis,
10j Denver, 117 Milwaukee, 110 St.
Joseph, 417 Des Moinos, 310.
Iu tho National leaguo Boston still
maintains her position at tho hoad of the
procession, although she took quilo a
lumblo by dropping two gamos to Indian
apolis, while New York won four straight
from Pittsburg. Indianapolis, howovor, is
making them all guess. Leaving Boston
she rau down to New York, and evened up
mattors for tho beanators, by smashing
out a couple of straights from the Giants.
Chicago, too, has been playing grout ball,
and had finally reached tho third notcj,
but was set back by Philadelphia. Good
luck in tho closing games of tho week.
Tho clubs began tho week's play in this
order: Boston, 038 New Yoik, 621!
1'hiladolphia, 528 Chicago, 513 Clove
land, 482 Indianapolis, 431 Pitts
burg, 430 Washington, 35G.
Brooklyn is taking things by storm in
the Amorican association, nnd to the de
light of almost the ontiro base bill world,
is beating the St. Louis Browns out of
sight. There is littlo fear that she will
agaiu bo headed in tho race. Tho next
best game iu the association is that being
played by the Baltimores, who are sure of
third place ana may possibly boat the
Browns out for second. The Athletics
an.I incinnatis have been egregrious fail
ures, whilo Kansas City, Columbus auo
Louisvillo continue to flounder in tho tu
roon Columbus, though, is putting up
mu tho strongopt game of the thrco tail
on ers. Tho rotative positions of the
clubs aro as follows: Brooklyn, 673 St.
Louis, C-13 Baltimore, 687 Athletios, 5G5
Cincinnati, 518: Kansas City, 4ll Colum
bus, 109 Louisville, 203.
IloHton Is Full or llaso Ball Craiilcn.
On the 2nd Boston played two games
with Indianapolis on the bcaneaters' homo
grounds. The iirst game, won by Boston,
was very ordinary as to foatures, whilo
tho second was a remarkab!o game iu more
ways than one. Six thousand people saw
tho morning game, whilo in tho afto noon
tho count roached 12,901. With Boston
sure pennant winnor, the city's cranks
came out in swarms lil:o cockroaches from
an old waste basket. Tho game the
13,009 saw was worthy their pains. In tlio
first inning Richardson, for Boston,
tipped tho ball over the fcuce for a home
run. That was tho only 6Core recorded.
Boston was charged with two errors, In
dianapolis wi:h none.
Points on tlio Siou* Oily dull.
Clino is regarded as the team's mainstay
in close games. No pitcher has ever fooled
".\lonk" with a bad ball. As a base run
ner he has. no equal in tho association,
and ho will bo with tho team next season.
It is officially given out that the club
will bo oarrir-d over to next season. Moat
,of the members havo been signed. A

having lino success with tho playors.
Tom Flanagan is for salo. nltliough ho

Kddie Glenn, who has guardod loft field,
is tho most popular player in the club.
The pitcheri noxt season will be Bur
dick, Crowell and Seibol.
"Old Hoss" Bradley stays, of course, on
third base.
Pttlr Hits and Pout.
The chiof foature of a recent gamo at
Sioux City was tho threatened battle at
first baso between Davo Howe, of the op
posing Denvere, nnd Bradley. Tho cause
pf tho disturbance grew out of soma point
of tho game. Bradley had dropped the
ball over third bag for a base, nnd was on
tho bag Howe protected when tho cpock of
war arose, (Jlinp, who was coaching,
rushed in between them and the gamo
stopped. Umpire Doescher and Manager
Powell trotted down to tho base an I kept
the angry ill players apart until thoy
were made to realize the disgrace of such
an encounter and tho consequences to
both in the way of heavy linos and suspen
sion. Hostilities were not ronowo l.
Second Baseman Robinson, of Iho St.
LouiR club, nud Tucker, of tho Baltimores",
had a Berap duriug tho game at Baltimore.
In the eighth inning Bnltimoro was en
deavoring to havo tho game called on no
count of raiu. Tucker jocosely weut out
to Ilobinson at second with an umbrollato
protoct him whilo playing. Robinson be
come angry and Bmushed the umbrella,
whereupon Tucker grappled with him and
they wero having quite a lively time until
separated.
It has been decided thill Louisville will
Bpend $20,000, if necessary, for new play
ers noxt season. With a good club there
is not a better city in the associu'ion than
Louisville.
Morris, of Pittsburg, leads the lfeague
pitchers with an average of 1.57 earned
runs per game. O'Briou is second, Keofe
of Washington, is third, and Clarkson ii
fourth.
Minneapolis and Denver aro tho on'
clubs in tho Western association that
claim to havo mado any money this sea

Says the Chi-ago Tribune: George
Washington Bradley, tho veteran, seemB
destined to split tho rocord of John Nelson
and Deacon \Vhitn in tho matter of long

moro than good third baso for Sioux City
in the Western association.
Tho Chicago Tribune says that Sioux
City, Dos Moinos and St. Joseph will drop
their franchisor this soason, au 1 that Lin

'J lie Buffalo Evening JVtich publishes a
complete exposo of Graham's alleged trip
ever Niagara Falls. 'J ho alia was
shrouded in such mvstery, an I boro such
palpable evidence of fraud, that tho Narx
set out to prove it another one of those
sousational falceR of which Donovan's al
leged leap from tho suspension bridge and
Kimball's swim through the whirlpool
lapids wero the forerunner*. In this lat
ter essay of Graham's tho facts brought to
light prove it to have been a clear caso of
fraud and an attempt to gain additional
notoriety by cliicanery. Tho exposo in
substanco is as follows: Frank T.
Haggorty, a stenographer, states that
ho was lishiug iu tho river hear LnSalle
on the day of tho alleged feat. At LaSa lo
he met Garrett G. Staley, who said he was
omployed by Graham to cut loose his
barrel on the following morning and send
him over the falls in it. liaggerty pro
posed to Staley to accomnanv him nnd
help him release the barrel. Staley con
sented and the two men went in a boat
down to Prospect Point, just abovo tho
falls. There they met a man whom Hag
gerty thinks was Dover, a theatrical man
ager, who said ho was watching for the
barrel. Ihey also met Constable Horn,
who was said to havo taken Graham out of
tho barrel below the falls. He also said
ho was watching for it. "Horu and Stnlev
remained with me," says ggcrty, "till
after the hour which it was claimed the
barrel with Graham in it went ovor. We
saw no barrel nor did any go over the falls
up to that lime. Staloy was with ino
constantly until we returnod to LaSalle.
Wo did not leavo the point until noarly
7 o'clock. We did not see Graham at all.
If he was fouud in tho barrel below tho
falls he entered it down there and wns
pushed out into tho river." Haggerty iB
a perfectly trustworthy gentleman and his
statement can be implicitly believed.

"I havo had illustrated to me hero to

I am glad to stand here nt the source of a

springing from small beginning. 1 don't
want to exalt unduly the Presbyterian
church, and yet I think historians who litive

that it has been magnificently pushed on

JUSTICE FIJELD'S STORY.
HIH Account of tlio Nnjflo-Terry Trnffetly.
A San Francisco, .Cnl., dispatch aays:
Several witnesses testified in the Kaglo
case to the dangerous character of Judge
Terry. Several testified that whon Terr/
was shot at L&tbrop Mrs. Terry rushed
into the room, threw herself upon her
husband's body, aud remained thoro a
nute or two. Whon she ^ot up she
declared that Judge Terry was unarmed
and called the crowd to search him for
arms. Tho pistol found in Mrs Torry's.
sachel was produced.
Justice Field was examined in the after
noon. He recounted the events lending up
to tho Lathrop shooting. Justice Field
expressed tho opiniou that: if Naglo imd
not shot Terry he (Field) would havo been
a dead man within the next live seconds.
Ho said tho expression of Terry's fao
when he raised his hand to strike tho sec
ond timo could not bo mistaken. It was full
of malice and murder. Justice l"ioId de
clared he had never had any difficulty with
Terry of any kind whatever prior to giv
ing judgmeutin the Sharon caso a year
ago Jn fact, they had always been on
the most friendly terms. Terry had often
tried cases before him, and on entoriug
court hai always spoken to him pleasant
ly to him. louring tho last year or two,
however, ho had seemed entirely changed
and to havo lost tho respcct which he
formerly had f^r courts. Justico Field
added that tho story of his having asked
Terry to support him lor President several
years ago was puro fl.tion. As ho left
tho witness stand tho Justico remarked
that he was sorry thero was no ooe oa
tho other side to cross-oxamino hiin. Tb®
