URBANA (O.), June (V—The most Ft in ing fact in the trail of Thursday's dark tragedy is a card from the victim of the lynched negro's lust. Mrs. T. M. Gaumer's card was given to the press to-day. It contains the following touching and startling passages: "With a sorely chastened hand and mind I desire to take this means of showing to our fiends our heartfelt ap preciation of the many kindly words Bhown us during the fiery trial of our recent affliction. "Not only are thankful for the personal calls of sympathy at our door— for flowers and cards from our neigh bors — uu t for sympathetic messages from a distance. Almost beyond the ocean have come to us loving words of gym pat hy. "God bless our noble men and women Of Urbn&a, who have held up my hands, that I may once more take up the cares and burdens of life. "May our loving Heavenly Father help us to lay off the shackles of for mality and meet those kindred spirits w ho have so grandly come to us in our h<>ur of bitter trial, that we may go forth In the field that is white for the harvest for good: that we may walk more hum bly, more submissively: that the strifes we have borne may render us evermore thoughtful of Him, who, while on earth, knew nothing else but sorrow and afflic tion. "God bless our noble men and women of the Christian land of ours, our Gov ernor, our Adjutant-General, our May or and our city and county officials and citizens of every walk of life, who not only so nobly gave sympathy, but faced the bayonets the foulest stain upon our city's most sacred page might be blotted out: that their homes, their loved ones may be shielded from such a fate as that of a fair name that through out life must feel even a deeper sorrow than that of the parting of loved ones. "Never did soldiers die on any battle field for a more holy and righteous cause than did these brave boys for the purity of their homes, for mothers, daughters and sisters. They should be Jboked on as heroes, willing to spill their blood for the holiest of all and any pause. MKS. T. M. GAUMER." THREE COLLISIONS. Steamers Run Down Vessels and Sink Them. LONDON.

Rnmor That tlie Settlers A Returning Willi Their Famil To Their Homes is Not True, As They Are Afraid to Do So. Over Two Hundred Indians Are Off the Reservation and Committing Depredations — County Attorney Porter Says Agent Stauch is Ob structing Investigation, and Asks That Some One Else be Appointed Agent. DENVER, June O.—A special to the "Rocky Mountain News" from Miles CU>', Mont., says: The rumor sent abroad that settlers were returning with their families to their homes is not true. About fifty families, refugees from the Indians are still in this city, and others are coming In daily. As many as seven and eight families are huddled together in one cottage with no thought of returning to their homes while the Indians are off the reservation. A school teacher, who had been teaching on Otter Creek near the reservation, and about sixty miles from here, arrived last evening, having ridden the entire distance on a bicycle in one day. She reports seeing several small bands of Indians prowl ing along the hills on foot. Over L'lK) Indians are off the reserva tion, scattered in small bands, roam ing through and committing depreda tions and devouring everything in their line of march. There are said to be 1,300 Indians on the reservation. The dance houses donated the Indians some time ago by Captain Stouch and oth ers, will be torn down and the large drum taken away from them and all "bad medicine" made hereafter, will have to be made in the open air. Sheriff Gibb and Stock Inspector Smith leave to-morrow for the scene of the trouble with warrants properly ex ecuted for the arrest of White Bull, Yellow Hair and Sam Crow. Sheriff Gibb says he is confident that Captain Stouch, the agent, will co operate with him in the arrest of the men. The following message was seat to Senator Carter to-night by County At torney T. J. Porter: "Agent Stouch yesterday turned over Stanley but he has not received any ev idence against him and seems deter mined to keep Sheriff from making any investigation. other Indians are suspected and vigorous efforts to se cure evidence should be put forth. Stouch absolutely refuses to co-operate with the Sheriff in securing evidence and is delaying and thwarting Sheriff in every possible way. Thursday he again ordered Sheriff's deputies off the reservation. Indians claim to Sheriff that Stouch agreed to accept surrender of Stanley in full satisfaction of the murder. Stouch is certainly Ineffi cient and I therefore urgently request that he be immediately instructed to co-operate with the Sheriff in securing evidence against all these murderers and urge that he be replaced by some competent man." a naugh^y~exTmayor. He Enters Into a Row With His Wife and Children. TRENTON, June G.-People residing to the neighborhood of ex-Mayor Frank A. Magowan's colonial mansion were awakened about midnight last night by a disturbance in which the ex-Mayor, his two boys and a policeman were the central figures. Mrs. Magowan and her children live next door tp the house occupied by the ex-Mayor and Mrs Barnes. It is claimed that last night Magowan and Mrs. Barnes walk ed past the house where Mrs. Magowan and her children reside an unusual number of times. The boys believed it was done with the deliberate purpose of annoying their mother. They began to shout at Ma gowan and told him to take Mrs. Barnes into the house, and irt. is said made some uncomplimentary remarks about her. Magowan walked into the yard of his former wife's house after the boys. They ran into the house Meanwhile Mrs. Magowan sent for a policeman and ordered the arrest of the ex-Mayor. The latter ordered the policeman to arrest the boys, but the policeman declined to do either without a warrant. The matter was soon quieted down by Magowan leaving. During the day there has been some talk about warrants being issued, but at police headquarters to-night it' was said no such steps had been taken. BLINDFOLD CHESS-PLAYING. Pillsbury Scores Six Games and Loses None, Two Being Drawn. BROOKLYN, June 6.—A remarkable exhibition of simultaneous blindfold chess playing was given Saturday even ing at the Brooklyn Chess Club by Harry N. Pillsbury, the American chess champion. Eight members of the club studied the games at chess tables in one room, while Mr. Pillsbury played from memory' in an adjoining room. The games were well conducted on both sides, Mr. Pillsbury finally startling his opponents by his combinations. He an nounced a forced mate in four moves in one game, and another in two moves. After four hours' playing the score showed that Pillsbury had won six games, lost none, two games being drawn. Newspaper Correspondents Released. CINCINNATI, June O.—A special to the "Commercial Tribune" from Evans ville says: Wendell P. Phillips, Cuban war cor respondent of the London "Chronicle," was. with several other newspaper men. released from prison at Motanzo this morning, where he had been confined ten days, on condition that he will leave Cuba and never return. Phillips avoid ed Spanish censorship by sending his letters to the "Chronicle" through the | British Consul at Havana. During his trial yesterday he was defended by the British Consul. This news comes through a telegram to his relatives, who live here. A French Town Flooded. PARIS, June 6. —A cloudburst in the hill country of the province of Iser in southeastern France has caused the overflow of the Riter Morge and the destruction of a number of paper mills and silk factories, as well as houses along the banks.

WASHINGTON, June G.—Ex-Con gressman J. Frank Aldrich of Chicago arrived here this afternoon. He is dis creetly silent, but it is known that he came here on instructions to be in Washington when Mr. Calhoun arrived. Mr. Aldrich was offered and accepted the post of Consul-General at Havana over a month ago, and his visit here at this time indicates that Consul-General Lee's stay on the islands will be short. Want the Place Changed.

BOSTON, June G. —The annual report of the City Auditor shows that the city funded debt has increased steadily, now amounting to $48,993,326, on which the annual interest is $2,082,000. THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY WILL NOT FORCE ISSUES IN THE STATE CAMPAIGNS, But Repudiation of the Chicago Plat form Will Not be Al lowed. ALBANY (N. V.), June G.-The Dem ocratic party will not force national issues in the various State campaigns, and while repudiation of the Chicago platform will not be allowed it will not be brought forward as an issue para mount to anything else. This is the statement of National Committeeman Frank Campbell of Bath. Mr. Camp bell was in the city to-night fresh from a conference with party leaders, and said: "The policy of the Democratic party of the nation as laid down in the plat form of the Chicago Convention in 1800 cannot be disturbed until, the next Dem ocratic National Convention, which will be held in 1900. It will make no dif ference whether State, city or county conventions indorse it or repudiate it. It will stand unaltered. In the election last fall the regular organization of the State of New York was true to the nom inees and the platform of the Chicago Convention. The same party heartily indorsed Cleveland four years ago as the Democratic candidate for President, although three delegates were opposed to him in the national convention. "I believe in home rule. If the Dem ocrats of the city of New York, Buffalo or Rochester deem it expedient and wise for party success to conduct their local elections without injecting into them State or national issues I believe they have a perfect right to do so without interference of any State or national committee. "Democrats living in the State out side of the city of New York are look ing anxiously for the election of a Dem ocratic Mayor for Greater New York. If this could be accomplished it would encourage the rank and file of the party and enable the organization to get into fighting shape for the more important State election that is to take place a year from this fall, when Gov ernor, State officers and Legislature are to be elected. "If we carry Greater New York and elect the officers this year, then the party will be in shape with a fair chance of placing New York State in the Democratic column in 18!*0. "As the representative organization of New York of the committee, I can state the committee has no desire to interfere with New York State in its local elections this fall or dictate to the Democratic party what their is sues shall be in these elections." PHILADELPHIA CRICKETERS ARRIVE. No One Met Them at Oxford and They Spent a Quiet Day. Townspeople Do Not Seem to Take Much Interest in the Match. It is Expected They Will Beat Oxford and Cambridge, But Will Not be Equally Successsful in the Other Matches—English Cricketers Dis appointed Because an All-England Match is Not on Their Programme. OXFORD, June G. —The Philadelphia cricketers arrived here about noon to day. No one met them. They spent the afternoon quietly. There does not seem to be much interest in the match among the townspeople who have been relied upon to furnish a good gate. The present prospects are for fast wicket to-morrow although Biddle and one or two other members of the American team have not fully recovered from the effects of the voyage. The men are quite confident that they will give a good account of themselves. The Oxford team, while very much improved since the opening of the sea son, evidently stand in some awe of the Philadelphians because of their achievements over the Australians last year. The Philadelphia team for to morrow, considering the arrangements to-night, will consist of Bailey, Biddle, Bohlen, Clark, Coates, King, Lester, Patterson, Thayer and Wood. The American visitors are pretty generally expected to win. It is also believed that later on they will defeat Cambridge, but it is not thought they will be equally successful in other matches. Their programme is ambitious but it does not include an all-England or rep resentative match, while they will meet only the best players in the respective county teams. This is doubtless a wise step on their part, though disap pointing to English cricketers who would have liked to see what Philadel phia could accomplish against Eng land's finest eleven. Apropos of the visit. Prince Ran Jit Sinhji, one of the most popular cricketers in England, said yesterday to a representative of the Associated Press: "There is of course, a good deal of in terest felt in the visit of the Americans and this will undoubtedly increase as their tour lengthens. Their quality as a team will not have been tested in the most effective way ojecause they do not intend to play any representative match. I shall meet them when play ing for my country at Brighton, .June 17th and 19th. If lam engaged in any county match the time they play Marylebone at Lord's I shall meet them again, playing them there for the home team. "At Bristol they will meet Dr. Grace. So far as the Oxford and Cambridge teams are concerned the Philadelphia players may no| find them very strong opponents, but unless the Americans are a thoroughly capable team they will have very little chance against them." A GENERAL SURPRISE. The Solution of the Spanish Cabinet Crisis Not Expected. LONDON, June G.—The Madrid cor respondent of the "Times" says: The solution of the crisis is a gen eral surprise, as much in ministerial circles as in the world at large. It is thought, not without reason, that the counsels of the higher military au thorities as reported by Marshal Cam pos, Marshal Blanco and Marshal Do minguez would have inclined the crown toward a radical and distinct change of policy in the Cuban campaign. This idea was evidently prevalent, as Senor Canovas has himself admitted that, both as regards reforms and the conduct of the war by Captain-Genera! Weyler, his own hopes and aspirations have scarcely been fulfilled. The only explanation is that the first thought of the Premier is to vindicate his amour propre so far as the Lib erals are concerned, and when this is established to find occasion at an early date to so modify the Cabinet as to satisfy the Liberals and to terminate the deadlock before the Cortes reassem bles, which will probably not be for several months. It can hardly be doubted that the modifications would include the replacing of Captain-Gen eral Weyler by some other commander. THE SULTAN IS FOXY. He Will Leave the Blame to Fall on His Ministers' Shoulders. LONDON, June 7.—The correspond ent of' the "Standard" at Constantino ple says: Acting upon the advice of Izzet Bey, the Sultan is leaving the peace negotiations wholly in the hands of his Ministers, thus evading personal responsibility, and placing himself in a position to sacrifice them to popular in dignation if necessary. It is reported that the palace party has entered into extensive stock oper ations, on the theory that the market will show a rise as the prospect of peace increases. The Ottoman Embas sador at St. Petersburg has informed the Porte that Count Muravieff, the Russian Foreign Minister, told him he personally objected to Russian inter vention on behalf of Greece, and had counteracted the feminine intrigues started with that object, but the Holy Synod induced the Czar to intervene. A LIVELY SESSION. M. Brisson Abused in the Chamber of Deputies. LONDON, June 7.—The Paris corre spondent of the "Times" says: The scene in the Chamber of Deputies on Saturday during the Juarez incident when M. Brisson, President of the Chamlicr, suspended the 'sitting and sent for the military guard to remove M. Richard, the socialist deputy, who had referred to some of his colleagues as "police spies," was one of unwonted scandal and violence. M. Brisson, after the business was resumed* declined to hear Juarez, who interpellated the Gov ernment on what he called an attempt to "muzzle a deputy," basing his refusal on the ground that notice of interpella tion had not been given. A furious uproar followed, M. Brisson was pale with anger, but kept himself well under control. Never in the bitterest invective em ployed against an opportunist minister by demogogues of the extreme left was there greater violence than in the lan guage of which M. Brisson, who owes his seat largely to the socialist vote, was the unjust object. DE LOME HEARS FROM HOME. Secretary Sherman Also Hears From Hinister Taylor. WASHINGTON, June G. —Spanish Minister Dupuy de Lome to-day re ceived a cablegram announcing the re sult of the Queen's decision in the mat ter of the Spanish Premier and Cabinet Ministers who recently tendered their resignations. The Minister's dispatch is in line with the Associated Press advices, and says the Queen had reached her decision after consulting with the former Pre miers and the Marshals. Included in the former were Senor Sagasta, the present leader of the Liberal party, and Martinez Campos, the Captain-General of Cuba, who gave way to General Weyler. Mr. de Lome declined to dis cuss the possibilities of the retention in office of the present Ministry in re lation to the policy to be pursued with regard to Cuban affairs and in the in cumbency of Captain-General Weyler. Secretary Sherman also received a long cable dispatch from United States Minister Taylor at Madrid. Presumably it is in connection with the happen ings of the day in that city, but as it was in cipher the Secretary was unable to disclose the contents. The Secretary declined to make any statement in re gard to the matter further than to suggest that it indicated the confidence of the Queen in the Ministry. A RATE WAR. It Applies to the Dunkards and Chris= tian Endeavor Conventions. KANSAS CITY, June G.—A flurry has been caused in local railroad circles by what appears to threaten a lively pas senger rate war. The trouble grew out of a well-defined report that several Chicago roads were using the low -spe cial rates to the Dunkards' convention at Rossville, Ind., to scalp Chicago busi ness. This prompted the Alton road to announce a $12 50 round-trip rate be tween Kansas City and Chicago, and all other lines are now offering the same rate. Similar conditions apply between Kansas City and St. Louis, the round trip rates having been cut to $7 50, the regular one-fare rate. The St. Louis cut is said to be the result of one of the lines having been manipulating St. Louis rates by means of Detroit rates reading via St. Louis. It is also reported that a rate of $15 25 is being made from Chicago to the San Francisco Christian Endeavor Conven tion, despite the agreed rate of $25, though the report lacks confirmation. But among passenger men here it is generally conceded that Western rates are likely to be still further demoral ized. COUNCIL OF SHRINERS. It Will be Held in Detroit Three Days This Week. DETROIT (Mich.). June o.—The pro verbial dryness of the Shriners' desert was not in evidence to-night w hen the advance guard of the Ancient Order of the Mystic Shrine arrived at the Mecca of the Detroit Moslems. They came in a drizzling rain, but they were thrice welcomed by the local brethern, who had long been prepar ing for the annual meeting of the Im perial Council of the order, which will be held on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Harrison Dinglan of Washington, Im perial Potentate of the Shriners, was among the arrivals on a special train from the east, bearing delegations from several Eastern cities. There will be a land parade on Wednesday, and the naval parade the same night, in which many steamers and ymehts will take part. A French Duel. PARIS, June G. —Monsieur Thomson and M. Mirman, members of the Cham ber of Deputies, fought a duel to-day, grow ing out of an article written by the latter attacking M. Thomson. M. Mir man was slightly wounded in the fore arm. The latter is a radical socialist, and gained considerable notoriety through his protest against being con fined in the barracks as a conscript dur ing the election of a President to suc ceed Casimir-Perier. Canovas Will Remain in Power. MADRID, June G. —The Queen Regent has confirmed Senor Canovas, the Pre mier, in his ministerial powers, and the Cabinet will remain in office with per sonnel and policy unchanged. All the leading members of the Diet .and Cham- ' ber of Deputies who were consulted by her majesty, as well as three Marshals, have advised her to recall Captain-Gen eral Weyler from Cuba. Fatal Collision of Steamers. LONDON, June 6.— The steamers Bit tern and Ystroom, both bound for Am sterdam, collided in the Thames early this morning. The Ystroom foundered, two of her passengers being drowned. The remainder of her pasengers and her crew were taken on board the Bittern, which was damaged. The Bittern's sec ond officer and carpenter were drowned. Tired of the Place. GUTHRIE (Ok.), June G. —Patrick Na gle, United States Marshal for the dis trict of Oklahoma, has wired his resig nation to President McKinley.

Committees of prominent citizens and business men will meet and take charge of the party at the respective places visited, and will direct the movements of the visitors in seeing the manufac tories, business establishments and oth er places of interest. The party will leave here to-morrow morning for Baltimore on special cars attached to the regular train on the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad. Monday and Tuesday will be spent in Baltimore and Washington, and on Wednesday they will arrive at New York. While at New York the party will visit Brooklyn, Jersey City, Newark, Pater son and other places in the vicinity of the metropolis, and will leave on Sun day evening on one of the sound steam ers for Fall River.
