KEYV5 SUMMARY
DOMESTIC,
The secteiary of the interior has issued
emphatic Brdera it keep open cattle trails.
John Roach, the famous ship builder,
who for many years past haBdone business
under the firm name of John Roach & Son,
Philadelphia, made an assignment.
It is estimated that 250 wine and beer
saloons have been closed in St Louis Bince
July 1st, under the operation of high
license law, and that some four hundred, or
about one-quarter of all the saloons in the
city, will shut up during the month. The
liquor saloons have not been tffected, and
probably will not be. It iB only the small
places, remote from business centers, that
have bo far succumbed.
Mrs. Emma Gaunt was murdered by her
husband John Gaunt, at her home in
Habocken, the other day. Gnunt is an
Englishman, fifty-four years of age, and
was intoxicated at the time. His wife re
fused to occupy the same bed with him and
he stabb 3d her in the neck and side with
a large butcher knife. She died an hour
later. Mrs. Gaunt was forty-five years of
age. The couple had been married thirty
years and had five children. Gaunt is un
der arrest.
Secretary of the treasury Manning has
prepared and is sending out circular letters
to manuiacturers ana otners miere? lea m
industrial arts, stating that investigation
proves that the tariff laws are largely evaded
by an undervaluation. He asks them to
give their views as to the feasibility of sim
plfying the tariff and changing the advalo
rem duty to specific, and information is
sought to be laid before congress to aid in
the impiovement of the custom system.
Information is also asked with regard co
the relative cost of manufacture in this
country and Europe.
J. F. Cottinger, ex-secretary and tre'asurer
of the central transportation company, of
Pennsylvania, charged with embzz'ement
of $147,500, and forging certificates for 112
shares oi the company's stock and uttering
and publishing the same, was arraigned be
fore Judge Yerkes, in Philadelphia. A
plea for mercyas made on behalf of the
prisoner, who is 8 years of age, and the
head of a highly respectable family. Consel
said that a large portion of the stock was
over issued by the defendant twelve or thir
teen years ago and it was a fact well known
that a large amount of the money, which
the defendant had received for the over
issue was paid in dividends at twelve per
cent, per annum, to the very persons who
got the stock, so that he profited very little
himself in the trersactions. The trouble
was that he began in a small way and kept
it up in order to prevent his first fraud from
being discovered. It was testified that he
began the over issue in 18T4, continued un
til the 2d of April, '85, during which time
it amounted to 3,086 shares. The prisoner
had nothing to say in his own behalf. The
jadge sentenced him to an imprisonment
tor four years at separate and solitary con
finement in tne county prison.
The colored man Green, who was the
cause of the controversy between ex-Secre-laiy
Lincoln and Gen. Hazen, about one
vear ago, has turned up again. At that
time Gen. Hazen declined to place Gree j in
the signal corps guard of cavalry and in
fantry which had been set apart for colored
soldiers, but not the signal corps. Secre
tary Lincoln, however, ordered his enlist
ment in the corps provided he could pass
the examination, and was sent to Fc. Myer
Icunderg'J'the regular course of instrac
li ) He performed all the duties accept
ably, and with the other members of his
class recently became eligible for station
duty. The signal service observer at Pen
sacola asked for an assistant and was told
tht one could be sent him. He procured
for him rooms and board in his boarding
place and made other arrangements to re
ceive him and Green was the man selected
at the assistant and was sent to Pensacola.
Oq his arrival the signal service officers re
fused to receive him because of his color.
The officer has been summoned to Wash
ington to make an explanation. The col
ored man remains in charge of the office at
Pensacola. It is stated at the signal office
that Green was assigned to duty at Pensa
cola without any regard to his color and
that the officer who selected him did not
know at the time of his selection that he
was colored.
A desperate attempt to rob the Richmond
& Danville pay car was made, The car
reached Atlanta, an? during that day the
paymaster distributed $40,000. During the
night the pay car and supply car were
E laced on the main line near the Mark
am house. Mr. Groser, the paymaster,
and his cook occupied the car. Mr. Groser
xpected to be moved early in the morning.
About 3 o'clock he awoke and found the
cars in full motion. They were moving at
toe rate or iorty miles, an hour. The rcpid
rate aroused nis suspicion and he arose and
opened the car and put the brake on. The
train was moving up a steep grade and the
brake soon brought it to a stand still. Mr.
Groser then climbed up on the supply car
and approached the engine. When he had
made half the distance he observed a
man climbing off of the engine. ''Where
are you going to take me?" demanded Mr.
Groser. "To the Belt Junction," was the
reply. "For what?" Mr. Groser ask. "You
will find out soon enough, you are the man
we want," was the reply, and at the same
instant the man began firing at Mr. Groser.
The bullets whistled about his head and he
made for his car and placed his cook to
watch one door. He then sprang from the
car and ran for help. He returned to his
car in half an hour with help, bat found
the men gone. The safe contained about
130,000, but had not been molested. Three
men were seen about the place where the
train stopped, and one man has since been
arrested. The work was performed by rail
road men.
A dispatch from Omaha aaya that Con
gressman Holman's special congressional
committee to investigate the Indian affairs,
SATURDAY, JULY 25, 1885.
consisting of himself and Congressman
Ryan, of Kansas, and Cannon of Illinois,
left Omaha to visit the Pine Ridge and
Rose Bud agencies in Dakota. The remain
ing members of the committee are detained
at home. Mr. Holman said that it is pro
posed, if possible, to concentrate the unset
tled portions of the Sioux, Crow or other
tribes in the Indian Territory. It is the com
mittee's intention to recommend the pur
chase of the Sioux reservation in Dakota, if
obfainableat a reasonable price,it;open and
to homsetead settlers. Settlers are now wait
ing anxiously for the opening of that reser
vation, and soma congressional action was
expected to be taken at this last session.
Mr. Holman believes this purpose would
be advantageous both to the government
and the Indians. The committee disap
proved of ever placing the Indian affairs
under the control of the army. "Most of
the Indian troubles, they say, is due to bad
agents and they, propose to investigate the
agents' methods. They will also probably
recommend a thorough school system on
the reservation."
Reports received at the general office
of the national cattle and horse growers
association at St. Louis, from the various
cattle raising regions in the west, are gen
erally of the most favorable character.
Vice-president Prior, of Colorado, writes
that the ranges are in fine condition, and
the cattle fattening rapidly. General rains
have prevailed, and all cattlemen are jubi
lant over the prospects for a good year. A
great many native and wintered Texas cat
tle are leaving for the northwest territories,
and a general movement of cattle is being
made in compliance with the law, and
without molestation. No fever has as yet
developed in any .of the herds in this sec
tion. Vice Pieeident Milne, of New Mexi
co, reports a healthy condition of the cattle
in that territory and that the crop will be
25 per cent, more than last year. Vice
President Harman, of Idaho, says thit
while little rain has fallen lately the grasd
is fine and the cattle doing splendidly.
There is no disease among them and the
cattlemen are very much encouraged by the
outlook for the present season. Large
numbers of stock cattle are being shipped
from West Idaho and Nevada to Wyoming.
Vice President Mitchell, of Nevada, reports
a better condition of both the range and
cattle tnan for several years, and says
though the hay crop on the river bottoms
may he lighter than mual the quality is
better and a greater number of cattlemen
will put up more hay for winter feeding
than ever before. All these gentlemen say
that the national cattle convention to be
held in St. Louis in November is looked
forward to with treat interest, and that the
attention will be largely increased oyer
that of last year.
A dispatch from Crossfield,this state, says
that the disposition ot the troops defending
Kansas is strong and commanding. A
chain of small scouting tar ties are located
so as to cover the Kansas border for seventy-five
miles, and about fifty miles west of
the camp the Kansas Southern railroad
rans parallel with the border line, about
thirty miles north of the Indian Territory.
Should the Indiahs strike any of these
camps, the military couriers would ride
north to the railroad, and wire Commander
Morrow, who holds an engine under steam,
and cars at his disposal night and day.
Morrow's telegraph office is located
in a tbox-car, in the camp, with direct
wires to Kansas City and Fort Reno,
where 8heridan and Miles are hourly in
communication with him night and day.
dol. Morrow can thus be advised and antic
ipate any invasion east of the camp and
move the troops east by rail and so get in
front of the Indians' advance, but should
the Indians strike north on the Dodge City
trail and west of here, they must make a
lone deflection northwest, and Col. Mor
row's well equipped cavalry moving inside
of the arc which the Indians must deesribe,
could out-travel and crush the Indians ere
they got fairly off their reservations. They
would be surely crushed and almost anni
hilated shotld they strike ?ny way except
westand there it 1b not thought they would
go. The Cheyennes numbar less than 1,200
warriors; more than that many soldiers are
at one camp alone, who practically sleep
on their arms. Col. Morrow says it is a
very rare thing to see so large a United
States force assembled in one camp. The
Oheyenua appear to be hemmed in, and
an invasion in a northerly and north
westerly direction would result in absolute
defeat and all but destruction of the
Chevennes and tne entire warrior force.
FOREIGN.
' The French government, has decided to
build a metropolis railway undergrond and
has asked extra credit of 101,500 francs on
account of the Victor Hugo funeral.
A conference of sugar refiners, at which
nearly the whole trade was represented, was
held at London. A resolution was unani
mously adopted petitioning the Marquis of
Sah'sbury, prime minister, to make a tour
of the country and bring before the peo
ple the allegei inj astice of the American
government in paying a bounty through
its tariff laws to American exporters of re
fined sugar. The refiners claim that this
bounty is ruining the sugar industry of
Great Britain.
A dispatch from Brunn, Austia, states
that the tanners of Trepitiche in Moravia,
are in such a state of turbulance that seri
ous' trouble is feared. The tanners had
been rioting and attempted to rescue two so
cialists from jail where they were imprison
ed. In the attack on the jail the mob ston
ed the soldiers on guard; the latter charged
upon their assailants with fixed bayonets
and wounded many of the rioters. This
exasperated the tanners who have renewed
the rioting. Their conduct at present is
very threatening. . The Trepitiche authori
ties haye appealed for military assistance.
The number of tanners who attached the
jail was 2.000 as d this number has been
considerably increased in the mob wLich is
now threatening the peace of the city.
Tha following is the comment of the
leading London papers on the reported ad
vance of Russian troops into English ter
ritory: The Telegram sayB the negotia
tions between England and Russia regard
ing the Afghan question have resulted se
riously, Russia preferring new claims and
refuses to yield to Lord Salisbury,, whose,
tone, although studiously friendly, is firm.
The Standard, in commenting upon the
same subject, declares that England will
never condone a second edition of the
Penjdeh outrage. The Standard, in an edi
torialon the reported advance of the Rus
sian troops on Zulifikar Pass, the same pa
per says it is thought that more reassuring
news was received late yesterday from the
chief of the British Afghan boundary com
mission. The news from other sources re
garding the Russian movements is of the
gravest character. The only redeeming
feature of the intelligence from Afghanis
tan, says the Standard, is that the Afghans
have attached themselves more firmly than
ever to our side. The Telegraph, m its ar
ticle on the Afghan news says that the ob
jection of the ameer to th a Russian claim
to the position of practically commanding
Zulifikar pass is supported by Lord Salis
bury. Lord Salisbury's reluctance to con
sent to Russia's offer to submit the ques
tion in dispute to a joint commission is ow
ing to his belief that such a course would
be without result, and would only delay
the settlement of matters. The Times says
that all the powers, with the exception of
Russia, have given their assent to the issue
of the Egyptian loan. Russia's silence, the
Times says, increases the apprehension in
regard to the Afghan question.
THE CHEFENNE TROUBLE.
The Troops Now Give the Kfcnsas
Fall Protection.
Border
A dispatch from Crossfield, Kansas, says:
There are now 1,300 soldiers in camp here.
One troop is out scouting toward the
Cimraron river. Companies from the 'camp
in Kiowa, fifteen miles to the southwest, are
scouting from there over to join the scout
ing lines, with companies A, E, F and M
of the Eighth cavalry under Major Compton.
From the camp sixty miles west of us, and
about seventy-five miles northwest of camp
Supply; about 100 miles nearly due south
of us, on their own reservation, comprising
about 1,000 miles square and on that
which is known as the old Canton
ment, which is the well known In
dian camping grout d, about seven miles
west and slightly south of Fort Reno, are
most of the Cheyenne warriers with the
chief who will not come into Fort Reno for
apow-wow. The reason given by the In
dians is that the young bucks, having had
insufficient rations, are out hunting for
game. They will come and pow-wow-with
Gens. Miles and Sheridan as soon as the
bucks return: till then the soldiers must
have patience. Meanwhile the news ar
rived at headquarters that the Indians are
insincere; they slip out to hunt, well
mounted and finely armed; they come
home with poor guns and only a few poor
ponies. They are securely hiding their
arms, ammunition and ponies west of their
reservation. They have below 1,500 bucks.
The arms they secrete are principally Win
chester riaes.
A later Bpecial from Fort Reno says that
the dissatisb'ed Indians were given an op
portunity to talk with Gen. 8heridan. The
conference was confidential and private,
but it was learned from the Indians that
the elements represented in the talk were
the Stone Calf and Ltttle Robe outfit?, that
have been creating so much trouble out in
the western part of the reservation. Since
Cantonment was abandoned as a military
post these two bands have been making
headquarters at Fc Supply instead of the
agency. They assured Gen. Sheridan that
they were glad to see him, so illustrious a
visitor direct fsom Washington, and that
the talk about the Cheyennes wanting to
fight was all a lie. On the contrary, they
were now and; always had been entirely
peaceable; that they had some cause of
complaint, that they did not like their
sgent, and that they were opposed to the
grass lease; on this account they would
like a large portion of the reservation set
off especially for their own use, so they
could have their own agent and lease their
grass to their own friends. The foregoing
is the substance of their talk.
The dispatch says further that Powder
face, the Arapahoe chief, was present, and
made a speech, in which he told Sheridan
that for many years his people had never
fought the whites, and that he (Sheridan;
well kiew that the Arapahoes had refused
to join the Cheyennes in their last
war and that in the present
trouble the Arapahoes had stood
by the whites; that thus having been
friendly for so many years.he thought that
the Arapahoes' statements should have as
much weight as the turbulent Cheyennes
present, who were always making trouble.
That the Cheyennes who talked against the
grass leases were only a very small num
ber of the tribes and that a large, majority
of the Cheyennes and all the Arapahoes
were strongly in favor of grass leases; that
the money had been promptly paid them
for the use of that which would otherwise
have rotted or burned up; that the lease
men had always acted honorable.kept their
promises, and that he. (Powder Faca) want
ed the government to dis
tinctly understand that with
the exception of the few who had asked the
Indians wished the'gras3 leases to run for
the full term, ten years, ft r which they had
been made. Sheridan is very willing to
allow the Indians to amuse themselves
talking until such time as he can make
suitable disposition of his troops, when he
will talk.
General Sheridan has organized an Indian
police f jrce, composed of one hundred
young Cheyennes. It is said that the gen
eral, in his report, will attribute the dis
satisfaction among the Indians chiefly to
the cattle diseases.
An experienced dairyman says the
grain or butter m?y be spoiled in churn
ing where great haste is need. A alow,
regular stroke is absolutely necessary
and indispensable in manufacturing a
first-class article.
