until daylight.
Late last evening a false report was spread In
Walktr that the Indiana had cut the telegraph
wirea. This looked as If they meant business.
The citizens st Onoe held a meeting in the
Town Hall and organized a home guard. Mayor
Kfnkle presided. A line of pickets wna placed
round the town. All the cltlaena turned out
with their rifles. Tim pickets were reMeved by
lrth men every four hours. The Walker oltl-
iu were aided by twenty-five men from
Brainerd, who came ud on a special train with
Ifty rifles and a large supply of cartridges.
During the evening the Flora, loaded with
blankets and provlalons, steamed up the lake
' to where the soldiers were heft, but sfter two
aoun' ilfnalllng without any answer, the boat
returned, not daring to risk a landing. During
- tktajght the Vera wen t over to the agency and
braaght over all the white people residing there.
A council was held by the agency Indians
hat night, at which thsy decided not to take
the part ot either side in this fight. By means
of runners and algnals the Indiana are kept In
formed as to the state of affaire all over tho
reservation. Lieut. Humphrey made moat of
the agency chiefs sign promises of good be
havior. They did not like to do It. but decided
to accede. The signers are the head men of
the tribe.
Qaygwaohlwyx. a Bear Island chief, swears
that the majority of the Bear Islanders are not
"lam going to stay by the whites." he said,
"and many of my braves will do so."
These promises are not worth much, liow-
ever, and according to the report) to-night the
Indiana at Leech Lake ara being reinforced by
CanandHed Lake Indiana in large numbera.
A general uprising seems certain, as few of
the Indians can be depended upon when their
blood la stimulated by the noise and report of
U battle.
There was desultory firing from the head
land about Walker all last n Ight. It could not
be discovered what it was about, but It is

The gang that came up from Brainerd during
U night under Dr. Camp were about as deter

be an Indian exodus here as sure as the sun
to-morrow morning. The temper of the
soldiers who left here for the front is some
thing to make men gaap. If ever they ara
Wowed to get to the Indians no offloere will be
sole to hold them back.

the report that the agency Indians nro In an

The Pillagers Are Good Farmers and Have
Been Peaceful Till Now.
Wabbikoton. Oct. l Indian Commissioner
Jones had received no further Information to
night regarding the situation at Leech take.
The Pillager Indians, he said, numbered
1,153 and were a branch of the Chip
pewa tribe, which were scattered over
the country near the scene of trouble.
The Hungers were well advanced in civ
ilization, were Industrious farmers, and
the crops they produced compared favorably
with those of the whites In that vicinity. They
had heretofore been peaceful, and the only ex
planation he could give of the present difficul
ties waa that thej jrcre caused by the whites.
While the present trouble waa purely local. It
wan undoubtedly brought about by the proposi
tion to remove the Pillagers from Leech Ijtke
to the White Earth reservation.
An Item of S35.000 waa originally carried by
the last Indian Appropriation bill to pay the
Indians for the Improvements on their prop
arty, but waa stricken from the bill before It
became a law. Mr. Jonea thought the Indians
hsd been led to believe they would be moved and
would receive no pay for their improvements,
whtoh was tho beginning of their ill feeling.
As a matter of fact, the Indian Bureau had no

Minneapolis Kdltors Tell Him They Think
at JLeast 600 Soldiers Are Needed.
Minneapolis. Minn.. Oct. 0. The following
telegram was sent to President McKinley last
"Advices from conservative sources lead us to
believe that a force of not leaathnntlOu soldiers,
preferably 800. should be at unco available at
Leech take and vicinity. We believe such a
force needed, not only to rescue Oen. Bacon
nd the survivors of his command, but prob
ably to overawe the agency Indians, In whose
professions of friendship and neutrality no one
acquainted with them puts credence.
"A general outbreak at or around Walker
would probably result in the musascre of many
citizens. In a oountry so heavily wooded the
present force Is In our judgment wholly Inade
quate. The gravity of the situation Is not
overestimated In the above suggestions.

All of Them Heroes of Santiago Wilkin
son's Long Career In the Army.
It was Company E of the Third United Statea
Infantry that was first sent to taech take from
Fort Bnclllng and was attacked by the Hung
ers on Wednesday. These soldiers had only
recently returned from Santiago, where their
regiment, which formed part of Hawkins's brig
ade participated In the two daya' battle.
Their Captain. Brevet Major Melville C. Wil
kinson, passed unecnthod through the San
tiago campaign only to die yesterday by an
Indian's bullet.
Major Wilkinson was a native of this State
and was In the volunteer service all through
the civil war. He was made First Lieu
tenant for gallantry at Antietam. He en
tered the service In the Twenty-third New York
Infantry on Mny 10, 1801, and was honorably
mustered out of the volunteers as a Captain in
1800. He at once entered the regulars an a
Second Lieutenant of the Forty-second Infan
try and wan assigned to the Third Infantry,
Aug. 3, 1870. In which he was made Captain
April 24. 1880. Major Wilkinson's nsmo Is
fourteenth on the list of Captains. Ho was
brevetted Major In 18fk) for gallnnt services
ngninst tho Indians in the Idaho campaign
of 1877.
Wilkinson's record In the Indian wars of the
far West was an enviable one. It was In the
Nce Perot's wsr that Wilkinson made his reoord
as an Indian fighter. Ho was attached to the
staff of Oen. Howard, and on many occasions
won the prals of that commander. In tho
battle of Clearwater. Idaho. July 11 and 12.
1877. he commanded a Gntling gun and did
fearful execution wit'i It.
Major Wilkinson was a great personal friend
of the late Gen. Mason. They wore In the same
regiment many years of their army life. Major
Wilkinson's long residence at Fort Bnolllng
had brought him in contact with many of the
citizens of Minneapolis and St. Paul, and one
and all were ready to testify to his genuine
merit as an officer and u gentleman.
Chippew at Omaha Kxcltrd Over the
Fighting In Minnesota.
Omaha. Noli.. Oct. O.-The 000 Bed Men of
the Indian Congress now ossein Med In Omaha
are very much Interested in the reports of
fighting with the Minnesota Indians. Some of
the braves at tha Exposition grounds aro con
siderably excited over the situation. The man
ner in which the news wus circulated among
the Indians is a mystery, rven to Capt. Mercer,
who hue charge of the cump. This mornings
number ol chiefs came to Morcer and asked
him what the "heap big fight" up North
means. They listened In silence to the state
ments of the Captuln.
There are fifteen Chippewns in the camp
from near the scene of the fighting. They
seemed greatly interested and talked among
themselves In an excited manner for Indians.
Their Chief. Owl Fsce Men. was asked by Capt.
Mercer what he thought of the fighting. He
grunted with much energy and said:
"Whlto man much moan, but Injuns mean,
too. cause not treated right. Will he heap big
tight before war over cause Injuns have heap
good guns."
Owl Face Man is not a head chief, but is in
charge of his men here and seems vorr iutellt-
f:ent. He said his men first heard of the Mulli
ng from a half breed who read of It in
the morning papers. Other Indians on the
7:round. especially those Apaches and Sioux
rom the West who know something of the
fighting qualities and number of United States
troops, rldleulo the Chippowao for going
to war. Old Geronimo. the famous old
Apache chief, who has been n prisoner
since being captured by Crook niter his
desperate fighting In the South, was
an Interested listener to what Capt.
Mercer said to his men. He was too dignified
to ask Information, but evidently was much
interested, because he thought a great linll.ui
uprising was on.
When he found the fighting wan confined to a
little tribe away north of any territory he knew
aught of he had nothing more to sny. W'hen
asked by Capt. Morcer If he would like to fight
the old warrior's eye flashed, but ho merely
grunted with disgust.
Will Sail Hence for Southampton on Wednes
day -St. Paul and Paris Follow In Turn.
The American line steamship St. Louis, until
recently an auxiliary cruiser of Undo Sam'a
navy, arrived yesterday from Philadelphia,
whore she has been reconverted Into a peace
ful merchantman by the Cramps. She will
sail hence for Southampton on Wednesday.
The St. Paul and the Paria will follow her.
None of these big liners can get a dry dock big
enough on this side to complete her overhaul
ing. That is because American shipbuilding
is having a boom and there are no docks avail
able. The London Shipping World says that
" It means a good deal for the splendid devel
opment of Southampton as a port that In de
fault of New York or Philadelphia possessing a
dry dock sufficiently large to acuommodate the
four American liners, they will have to cross
tho Atlantic and complete their overhauling
operations on this side. The Ht Paul and the
Paris are to leave Southampton on successive
baturdays after the St. Louis, but for the pres
ent the New York is to remain as reserve ship
at New York."
This Is not true. We havedocks. one at New
port News, to accommodate the big liners, but
they are In use. Mr. Qrlscom sold yesterday that
the over-sea rumor that the New York was to
be taken abroad and lengthened fifty feet waa
not true. Moat ot the crews of the four Ameri
can twin screws served on them through the
war. Southampton has made preparations to
give the St. l-ouis and her sister ships a joyous
greeting on their arrival there.
The revenue cutter Hudson, which distin
guished herself by towing the disabled torpedo
post Winslow out of dunger at Caulenas after
Ensign Bagley had been killed by a fragmeut
of u Spanish shell, arrive.) here yesterday from
the Norfolk Navy Yard. There was no berth at
the Lottery tor her, and she went to Erie Basin.
She will resume her old occupation of taking
customs officers down the bay to board Incom

The General Leaves Santiago for a 40O-MI1
Trip Through the rrnvlaee ,oo Men of
Col. Pares's Pare Will Lay Down Their
Arms on Monday -I.ond talk from Cubans
Who Want the Americana to Clear Oat.
JhMnsI CWI Dttftek h Tna Bow.
Bantiaoo db Cuba. Oct. 0. Oen Calixto
Oarola left for the interior on his mission of
pacification early this morning. Ha was es
oorted by sixty Cuban soldiers and the Cuban
officers Lleut.-Col. Carlos, Paey, Capt. Juan
Kxalanto and Lieut. Antonio F.xslante. for
merly members of the personal staff of Oen.
Garcia. The party carried ten days' rations,
which were supplied by Oen. Wood. They
went on horseback, and will ride 400 miles
befora they return to Santiago. The trip will
take more than two weeks. No more than
thirty miles a day can ba made, owing to the
wretched condition of the roads and tha lack
of bridges. The mountain streams, swelled
by the heavy October rains, are raging tor
rents, and the party will have to swim them.
Oen. Garcia will first go to Jlguani, then to
Bayarao and then to Mansanlllo. where tha
largest forces of Cuban troops ais encamped.
After their return from this trip they will
visit Ouantanamo and Bsraeoa, travelling to
those places by boat.
Oen. Oarola told Oen. Wood he believed he
could Induce thousands of soldiers to lay
down their arms, and persuade many who
have made common cause with the Spanish
guerrillas in the hills, where they are plunder
ing, to return quietly to their homes.
Word came from Ouantanamo to-day that
the arrangements for marching the force of
the Cuban loader Pedro Peres into Ouantana
mo had been concluded. Col. Perez has in
formed tho authorities here that 2,200 of his
men will be ready to enter Ouantanamo on
Monday next, when they will turn their arms
over to the Americans and disband.
The arms will bo placed In the arsenal and
each man will receive a certificate showing
bow long ho served In the field and the amount
of money due him.
Cubans and Americans here estimate that
500 of Col. Perez's men loft him and took to
the hills when they learned of the arrange
ment with the Americans for disbanding the
force. Col. Perez will be the first Cuban leader
to disband a large force since the arrival of
the Americans.
The unpopularity among the extreme Re
publican party of Oen. Oarcla's Idea of secur
ing an American loan for the payment In part
of the money due the Cuban troops is becom
ing more pronounced daily. There was a
lively discussion of the situation at the San
Carlos Club last night. Gen. Colazzo said
that the Cubans did not want an American
loan. They wanted to know when the Ameri
cans wore going to evacuate the Island and
turn it over to the Cubans. Oen. Portrlalea
Intimated that serious trouble was likely to
result unless this was done soon. Gen. Co
lazzo said that the Cubans had got rid of one
yoke ouly to take another. The Americans
had done nothing except to enforce the old
Spanish laws. They made no effort to help
the people. The Cubans were competent to
govern themselves and it was tha duty of tna
Americans to get tut and let them do it.
Oen. Wood haa ordered Customs Collector
Donaldson not to attempt to levy the old Span
ish stamp tax. which requires the placing ot
a Government stamp on all papers, books, Ao.
The order has resulted In a united protest
from a number of prominent merchants.
The transports Obdam and Berlin sailed
this morning for the United States with a num
ber of sick soldiers from Porto Itlco and San
tiago on board. Capt. Aurelius Mestre of
Gen. Wood's staff, who has been Intrusted
with n special errand to Washingtou, Is a pas
senger on tho Berlin.
A scheme proposed by Cuban Republicans to
obviate the necessity of lien. Oarola obtaining
a loan from the United States U to have the
planters who are favorable to the Cuban cause
raise S4.000.000 among themaelves with which
to pay every Cuban officer and noldler a amall
sum. The matter Is being actively agitated by
Gens, tacret. Collazo, and other extreme lead
ers. It will be presented at the coming con
gress at Cam aguey. It is said that the money
can be easily raised If the Camaguey Congress
will guarantee repayment.
The result of tho elections for delegatea to
the Congress Indicates an overwhelming ma
jority In favor of the provisional Government.
The circumstance Is not remarkable, alnce
only Cuban soldiers and citlzona in the towns
and districts occupied by Cuban troops were
allowed to vote.
The continued Importation of Jamaica
negroes is still the cause ot much discontent
among the Cubans. Another protest was made
to Oen. Wood this morning. Every boat from
Kingston brings a large number of blacks.
Oen. Wood's petitioners allege that many of
them are escaped criminals.

Madrid. Oct. i). Politicians and newspapers
persist In Indulging In illusions concerning the
possibility of making capital out of conflicts
which they anticipate in the Far East between
the powers, believing that Spain could turn
such conflicts to profit in the aettlement of the

The Tinnpo. Bailor Silvela's paper, urges the
Oovernment to keep this possibility in view
during the negotiations in Paris, and links

vor Governor Disappears Only Two
State Officials on Duty at the Capitol.
Jackson. Miss., Oct. 0 The utmost de
moralization prevails throughout the whole
State on account of tho rapid spread of yellow
fever and the extreme gravity of the situation.
The State of Mississippi has no Oovernment
praotlcally to-day and every Interest Is sub
ordinated to tho paramount one of preserva
tion from the Infection of the plague. Gov.
Motaurln, who at the beginning of the epi
demic withdrew to the Insane asylum on the
outskirts of tha capital, has fled to Smith
county, which has neither telephone nor tele
graph communication. The State associa
tion haa been trying to communioate with
him for three days In order to have an appeal
for assistance for the entire State issued by
him, but the chief executive cannot be heard
Tho Capitol building Is practically closed
and the necessary business ot the State la at
a standstill, the officers, with two exceptions,
having all fled. The Treasurer's office hsi
been closed for two woeks and the Auditor's
office has not a single representative to lasue
warrants. Many insurance companies can
not pay their annual privilege taxes due this
month, without which payment their business
is unlawful, and relief acts will hAve to be
passed by the Legislature of 1000 such us
were passed at tho special session of 1808.
Other enterprises are feeling the effects of
the situation.
Every trunk line of railroad passing through
the State has fover at different places and
raffle Is virtually suspende 1. By a recent far
reaching order of the Stnte Board of Health,
no travel whatever Is permitted by railroad
or steamboat between places within the State.
The entire passenger business of the roads Is
thus absolutely out off for un Indefinite period
wltnln the State.
Among the citizens the wildest panio pre
vails. With eyory announcement of a newly
infected locality there is a general exodus
northward. This depopulation of Infected
places is recommended by the State Board,
whose only hope of relief is an early frost. The
Infection over the State Is general. Twelve
counties are Infected and fifteen towns, among
them several ot the moat Important In the
State, are depopulated. The Bute educa
tional Institutions are stopped and one has
had the fover among the student body. The
Agricultural and Mechanical College at Stark
ville has three cases within the grounds and
the entire student body has been exposed.
The State University at Oxford is in the midst
of a fever-Info 'tod town and will make no pre
tence of opening until a heavy frost. Other
State institutions are in a similar predica
ment. The destruction among the negroes cooped
up in tho infected districts Increases. They
are totally dependent upon day labor for sup
port and when herded in this manner are re
duced to fearful extremities. In Jackson 1.500
are cordoned In an infected quarter, totally
dependent upon charity. Heroic efforts for
their relief are being made by the Howard As
sociation, but funds are not sufficient to re
lieve the distress. A movement is on foot In
St. Louis and other cities to oome to the res
cue. Not more than SOOIwhlte citizens re
main in Jackson of a total of 7.000. The fever
to-day appeared in the Baptist Orphanage, an
institution of the capital under the control of
that denomination.

cases and 3 deaths.
Bowie and Alexandria have not been Infected
before. The appearanoe of fever at these
places makes thirteen in Louisiana at which
the disease has appeared bo far. The appear
ance of the fever at Alexandria has brought
about the stoppage of all trains on the Kansas
City, Wntkins and Gulf Ballroad. Macon. Miss,
has quarantined against the world. Until frost
comes It will allow no malls to be sent there.
Two cases of yellow fever are reported from

"We believe the war against Spain was In
evitable, was just and necessary for the wake of
humanity and the progrusa of the world. Ws
glory In the bravery and heroism of the men
who on land and aea achieved such marvellous
results We demand that the gross Incompe
tency o the War Department, shown In Its
Ignoranoe. In Its neglect to properly supply snd
care for the brave men who responded to the
country's call. Be punished.
"We demand that tho faith of this country
Riven to the Cubans shall be Inviolably kept;
1st the Cubans shall be given every chance
and opportunity to establish a stable govern
ment of their own. We believe that no nation
of the world Is more competent to solve the
problems of the Philippines. The fortunes of
war have placed In our bauds this great re
smnsibiilty. and w should not shirk it. tat
Us give back to Spain no portion of the earth to
continue her misrule, oft account ot which we
wrested from her the Island of Cuba."
Tha Chicago platform was Indorsed.

London. Oct. 0. Dr. H. Darwin Mollratb and
his wife, who, In 1896, started on a bicyole
trip around the world, are In London, where
they will stay for about two weeks awaiting the
arrival of their manager, Mr. Frank Fowler,
before starting for home. Mrs. Mollratb. Is In
radiant health. Mr. Mellrath says that he Is
well, but he looks worn. As soon as he has
completed a lecturing tour In the United Statea
ho Intends to return to China for a long bicycle
tour In the Interior. He will not be accom
panied by his wlfs on this trip. He will try to
obtain a scientific man for a companion, per
haps a botanist from Kew Gardens. He wants
to study the minerals, flora and fauna of China,
whioh Impressed the travellers Immensely.
They learned more of China than of any other
oountry they traversed. Dr. Mellrath says
that China has enormous natural resources,
the value uf which Is utterly unrealized by the
natives. Among other riches there Is an abun
dance of gold, but the deposits are not worked,
the people preferring silver.
Dr. Mellrath declares that the question of
the future political ascendancy in China Ilea
between the United States and Great Britain.
The latter country already controls great In
terests throughout tho Y'angtse valley. The
English must eventually occupy the provinces
of Yunsn and Szechuen. The Russians do not
possess any Interests In central China, except
at Hankow.
In conclusion. Dr. Mellrath said that there
was no opening for the cycle trade In Persia,
There are no roads there, and only four bicycles
in the oountry.

London, Oct. 7. A deapatoh to the Timet
from Hong Kong gives an Interview with Kang
Yu Wei. the Cantonese reformer, who It now
under British protection. He said that
the Emperor gave him an audience on
June 18. Nobody else was present. Port
Arthur and Tallenwan had just been
leased to Russia. The Emperor had an
anxious, careworn appearanoe. He waa ready
to listen to any plan that promised ths seourlty
and Integrity of the empire. Kang told him
that the weakness of China was due to
laok of progress, and suggested that
the Conservative Ministers be superseded
by young and vigorous progressives. He
adduced the example of the recuper
ation of France after the war with Germany,
and aaked the Emperor why China should tie
ao long In recovering from the Japanese dis
aster. He advised the Emperor to study
the progress of Japan and the advance
made by Russia under Pater the Great.
He also advised ths employment of
Englishmen and Americans to sffeot reforms.
The present Ministers, he said, were useless
because they had no aoqualntanoe with Weetf
em methods and were too old to acquire and
anply them. To ask thsm to carry out reforms,
said Kang to the Emperor. Is equivalent to ask
ing your cook to make a coat or your tailor to
cook a meal.
The Emperor expressed regret, but pleaded
that he waa powerless to remove Important
officials because of the Dowager Empress. Hs
realized the uselessneas of the Chinese educa
tional system compared with Western methods.
Kang advised his Majesty to strengthen his
friendship with foreign powers, and particu
larly to seek an alliance with England.
The Emperor said hs realized that foreign
countries were no longer Insignlfloant States.
He added It was a pity that the Ministers did
not avert the impending trouble.
Kang aald that the real power In Pekln It held
by Ll-Luen-Yan, a sham eunuch, and that the
Dowager Empress's Illegitimate son. Chun
Ming, will probably be made Emperor.
On Sept. 18 Kang received two letters from
the Emperor. The first was as follows:
"We know that the empire Is in very
troublous times. Unless we adopt Western
methods it will be impossible to savs it. Un
less we remove the obstructive, conaervatlvs
Ministers, superseding them by young.
Intelligent men, with knowledge ot West

reforms, but the Dowager Empress will
not agree. I have repeatedly advised ber
Majesty, but the becomes enraged. I am
afraid that I shall not be able to proteot my
throne. You are hereby commanded to con
sult your oolleagues and see what assistance
you can glvs to save me. I am very anxious

sist me again In organising the empire and
putting everything on a proper baals. That la
