RUSHING FOR THE LAND.
- One of the chief explanations of the Increasing popularity of the north-west of this continent for farming operations is the diversity of country which it offers. Nature has so fashioned it that every branch of farming1 in the temper ate zone has been provided with a lo cality. And the extent of country adapt ed to agriculture is a revelation to those who not many years ago thought that Minnesota was the boundary of agricul tural land and that wheat-growing was doubtful even in Minnesota- Beyond Minnesota, across the boundary, the Canadian territories of Manitoba, Assin iboia, Alberta and Saskatchewan are claiming pre-eminence in wheat, in cat tle raising, and in mixed farming. Manitoba this year has outstripped the rest of the world in the quantity and Quality of her harvest. Assiniboia, though more sparsely settled, makes a Jjroportionately good showing, and Al berta is not only increasing the number tmd quality of the beeves shipped to Europe, but is importing young steers from the East to be fattened on the rich grasses of the country, which ripen early and remain juicy and sustaining throughout the moderate winter of those plateaux. Now a new and exten sive area has been thrown open to homesteading. Two railways have been recently opened into the Saskatch ewan country, and those who have been farming in the neighborhood of the old Hudson's Bay posts claim, and appar ently with some justice, that their coun try surpasses even Manitoba and east ern Assiniboia; that it is the garden of the Northwest. It is no wonder that Eastern Canadians arc selling out to take advantage of the free land to be obtained in these rich districts. The investigating parties that have been sent to spy out the land have reported so favorably upon it, that the desire to obtain a homestead in the "Western Can adian Provinces is spreading far beyond the limits of Canada itself. There are a number of delegates in the west pre paring the way for companies of intend ing immigrants who will move in the spring, and it is becoming more and more evident that Canada west of Lake Superior is becoming the heart of the Dominion, 'and that Winnipeg, though not the official capital, will be the most important city.

It May Tie Followed liy a Storm In Begrard- to Chill The Situation Conmdertu Grave "Wai:ta(r For the Verdict." WAsmxtrTox, Jan. 14. There can be little doubt that the developments of the last few days in the investigation now being conducted at J?an Francisco by Judge Advocate-Geneial Remy into the attack upon the Baltimore s crew. the publication of the testimony in the j Shields case and the ugly demonstra tion at Valparaiso against the York town's gig crew, hcve created a very uneasy feeling. Senators and repre sentatives, who have all along derided the idea of serious results following the Chilian correspondence and have had the greatest confidence that Cuili would soon tender an ample apology and make reparation for the misdeeds of her citizens, are now willing to ad mit privately that the situation is full of the gravest difficulties. One ominous sign is the inactivity of congress in the matter. Heretofore it has been customary whenever a matter of the smallest public interest to the subject of diplomatic correspondence for one of the two houses of congress to call upon the president for all the information in the possession of the state department in relation to the matter. But no senator or member has yet been venturesome enough to intro duce a resolution calling for the Chilian correspondence although it has been apparent to all of them that the rela tions of the United States with Chili have been strained nearly to the point of rupture within the last few weeks. Tbe very gravity of the situation ap pears to have had a repressible effect upon congress. The republicans are indisposed - to embarrass the president by calling for the correspondence, hav ing in view his promise to transmit it to congress at an early day. The dem ocrats are fearful of interfering with the negotiations and thereby precip itating trouble which may then be chargeable to their action. Of course the president might decline to accede to a request for the correspondence, as he has done in other cases, on the ground that it would not be expedient or in the public interest to publish it, but he would find it hard to do so after the strong expressions upon the subject contained in his annual message. So j the situation in congress is one of i anxious waiting in the hope that the president will soon relieve the general desire for information. The gun boat Bennington arrived at Montevideo yesterday morning, and it was expected that the Atlanta would arrive later. These two vessels will increase the American fleet at that point to five, the others being the Chi cago, Yantic and Essex. These will ; be available in case the negotiations with Chili should assume a more wariiKe aspect tnan at pres ent. The Philadelphia, Concord and Kearsage at Port au Prince could be utilized in the event of pro longed trouble, together with the Mian tonomah at New York and the Newark at N rfolk. . Secretary Tracy yesterday received a cablegram from Commander Evans, of the Yorktown, at Valparaiso, saying that the last of the Chilian political refugees who had been under protec tion at the different legations at San tiago were safely transferred to tho Yorktown yesterday. There were seven of these refugees five at the United States legation and two at the Spanish legation. They were accom panied from Santiago to the Yorktown by the American, Italian and Spanish ministers and will remain on the ves sel until Saturday, when they will be transferred to the Pacific mail steamer scheduled to sail from Panama on that date en route for Europe. The final report of Capt. Schley, commanding the cruiser Baltimore, in regard to the assault on the sailors of that vessel at Valparaiso October 16, was received by the navy department to-day. In it Capt- Schley makes a positive statement that the only inter view he ever had with Judge of Crimes Foster of Chili on the subject of the attack on the Baltimore's sailors occurred shortly after that event, and, therefore, its full gravity was known and understood at Valparaiso. At that interview Capt. Schley says that Judge Foster expressly stated to him that the cause of the attack was the hatred that the lower class of Chilians had for Americans because of the belief that the Americans had been on the side of Balmaceda. This expression by Judge Foster is regarded by naval officers as highly significant in view of his sub sequent statements in regard to the Baltimore incident. Foundered at Sea. London, Jan. 14. A dispatch was re ceived here vesterday from Hong Kong stating that the steamer Mie'oo has ar rived at that port bringing intelligence of the loss cf the steamer Namchow, off Cupichipoint. The Meifoo reports that the shaft of the Namchow was broken, supposedly at the point where it emerges from the hulL It allowed the water to run into the shaft alley a id make its way to the engine room, and thence into the fire room. The steamer's fires were soon extinguished and she settled rapidly. The water continued to pour in, and in a short time the vessel foundered. The steamer was employed in trading locally in the China seas and she had on board a very large number oc Chinese passen trers. She sank so rapidly that it was impossible to launch her boats, even had she had enousrh to carry all hands on board. When she went down she car ried with her 414 people, every one of whom was drowned. A Payings Mine 1 lscovered. Denver, CoL, Jan. 14. A strike which promises to rival Cripple creek has been made about nine miles north of Canon City, Col., between the latter place and the new gold fields of Cripple creek, on what is known as the Mouth f Milsap. Parties have been working the vein and keeping the matter - quiet for a month past, but the secret has leaked out and the truth of the mat er was made known. The property is a forty-foot vein of mineral-bearing rock with a pay streak of about three feet. The ore is silver and cop- ! per, recent tests giving 5-iO m silver and 40 per cent, copper.

Claim. Washington-, Jan. ,13. An interest ing case is pending in the court of claims. It is brought by CoL John M. Chivington, "of Denver, against the United States and the Sioux nation of Indians for Indian depredations com mitted in AnriL 1867. in Wvomine. The claimant alleges that the Indians stole 392 head of oxen and twenty-three head of horses, of the valus of $32,850. He asks judgment against the government and Indians. Assistant Attorney-General Im W. Colby, in charge of the de fense of this class of cases, sets up a counter claim and set-off in behalf oi the Indians, alleging the massacre of a large number of Indians, men, women and children, at Sand Creek, CoL, b$ CoL Chivington and his regiment on November 27, 1S64, and the destruction of property belonging to said Indians to an amount far exceeding in value that of the claimant's claim. This is one of the old historic cases, and was known as the "ChivingtDn" or "Sand Creek" massacre. It was report ed at the time that some 1,200 Indians of all acres and sexes were killed and their scalps taken and bodies mutilated by white men. CoL Chivington, prior tc his location in Denver, was a Methodist preacher and the presiding elder for that church in the South Platte county of Nebraska for several years. The massacre is agreed by all to have been one of the most foul and dastardly on record. A special commission was ap pointed by the president to examine in to this matter, consisting of Gen. W. T. Sherman, N. J. Taylor, John B. Hen derson, Gen. John B. Sanborn, Alfred H. Terry and others. A congressional committee was appointed, after much discussion, to investigate the case, com posed of such eminent statesmen as Senators Foster and Doolittle and Ben Wade. A military commission also in vestigated the massacre, sitting seventy-three days at Denver and Fort Lyon, taking testimony, and the evidence giv en before this commission alone occu pies over 200 printed pages. It appears that the Indians at the re quest of Gov. Evans, then governor of the territorv of Colorado, had come into Fort Lyon for protection and had been located on Sand creek, about forty miles distant, and were nnder charge of the United States officers and agents. 1 hey were friendly, and committed no depre dations, and had been there for months subject to government control, with their families, wives and children. The United States flag floated over the camp and a white flag also, by direc tion of the United Staces officers as an additional precaution. The evidence in the investigation shows that the In dians were nearly defenseless and un armed as the United States officers had required them to give up their guns before they went into camp; that at tack was made on them without warn ing, the women and children as well as men killed and scalped, their ears and noses cut off; children shot at their mothers breasts, and the bodies muti lated in the most horrible manner. This case will doubtless become a lead ing one in this branch of jurisprudence, involving as it does the right of the In dians to set off damages sustained by them against the claimant, and to ob tain judgment in their own favor against the claimant for injuries com mitted against them. BROUGHT TO TIME. Commander Evans Gives Chilian Insolence a F oretaste of What Slay lie Expected Congressman O'Neal Tired of Delay. Washington, Jan. 13. The following cable message from Commander Evans, commanding the gunboat Yorktown, the only United States vessel now in Chilian waters, has been made public: Secretary of the Navy: Valparaiso, Jan. 9. Yesterday afternoon y while lying off the landing place waiting, was stoned by three men in a crowd of bad characters, but no one injured. .1 visited im mediately the senior naval officer of Chili afloat and requested him to notify the police authori ties that I demanded their efficient protection and that if the offense was repeated I would take the matter in my own hands and protect my men with arms. Mucbregret was expressed by the senior naval officer who sent at once to the police. To-day I have assurances that the parties will be punished and protection given Evans." mr. o'heal tirixg of delays. Mr. O'NeaL of Massachur-ets, was on the eve of introducing a resolution in the house yesterday calling for the Chilian correspondence and declaring that if the facts which were being tes tified to in California were true a "casus belli" existed. The feeling in the house would have no doubt sus tained such a resolution had it been of fered, but by the earnest advice of Representative Blount it was with held. Last night Mr. O'Neal said: "I be lieve that a gross outrage has been committed by the Chilian officials upon our sailors. I believe, too, that it is the natural outgrowth and expression of ill feeling and hatred which the Chilians have long felt against this country and its citizens. There has been time enough and talk enough already in this matter. Our position is right, our demands on Chili just and my sentiment is for their immediate enforcement, and if necessary by the strong hand. To-day I deferred to older and more experienced counsel than my own." Rome Popnlation. Rome, Jan. 13. Notwithstanding the hard times that have prevailed in Italy, and especially in Rome, the authorities state officially that the population of Rome increased during the year 1891 by nearly 20,000.

Yesterday morning John Stank?, a well known Hungarian, and Mrs. Kobagh Mara were united in marriage and were on their way to their home in a hack, ac companied by Andy Martin, who had officiated as best man at the wedding. The driver passed in front of a passenger train, but was struck by a switch engine from the opposite, direction. The hack was completely demolished and Martin and the bride thrown under the wheels. Martin had his right leg cut off and skull fractured and will probably die. Mrs. Stanks had her left arm cut off. . . A. Passenger Train Wrecked. Graxd I8LAKD, Neb., Jan 13.

Kelly, of - this city, is believed to be fatally hurt. Only two others were seriously injured J.E. land, of Kear ney, and J. IL Wooley, of this city, both of whom sustained bad cuts. IMPORTANT DECISION. The Tnited States Supreme Court Reverses Judge Gretham In the Noted, Counaelmaa . Case. - Washtsgtox, Jan. 13. It has now become settled that witnesses cannot be compelled ta testify in any criminal cases where the answers might tend to criminate them in any way or subject them to possible future prosecution. . It is held that the fifth amendment to the constitution, giriag persons the right to refuse to answer questions which might be against them in criminal cases, ri us t be construed in its broadest sense. Such is the effect of the decis ion of the United States supreme court in the celebrated inter-state commerce case of Charles Counselman. appellant, vs. Frank Hitchcock, marshal of the United States for the northern district of Illinois. The supreme court says Judge Gresham's order was erroneous and that Counselman cannot be com pelled tr. testify. It is said the effect of the decision will seriously hamper the inter-state commerce act. The court's decision was unanimous. The Counselman case had its origin in an investigat'on begun inlS93 by the grand jury of the United States district court for northern Illinois into certain alleged violations of the inter-state com merce act by the officers and agents of the Rock Island, the Burlington and the Chicago, St. Paul & Kansas City railway companies. Counselman, the great grain broker, was asked whether he had obtained from railroads coming to Chicago from points outside the state a rate for grain transportation less than the tariff rates. His reply to this and similar questions as to whether or not he had received rebates, drawbacks or commissions from specially named railroads, was that he declined to an swer on the ground that it might tend to criminate him. The grand jury re ported the refusal t: the district court, and it found that Counselman' s excuses were insufficient and directed him to answer. He still refusing, the court adjudged him in contempt, fined him $500 and costs and directed the marshal to take him into cu t -dy and hold him until he should have answered the questions asked and others of similar import. After further proceeding.? the circuit court, Judge Gresham delivering the opinion, discharged a writ of habeas corpus it had issued to Counselman pending its decisioa, and made au order sustaining the district ourt. From Judge Gresham's order the appeal in this court was prosecuted anl Counsel man meantime admitted to bail. Coua- ; sel for the witness (appellant) besides urging the p.ea that the witness was protected by the fifth amendment t the constitution from answering any questions which might tend to crimi nate him in aay case, also attacked the right cf tha grand jury to proceed in such investigations. The court, in its opinion, rendered by Justice Blatchford, says, however, that : it does not find it necessary to consiier any other than the paint raissd under I the constitution as to the privileges of I witnesses. It is broadly contended, J, says the opinion, that a witness is not entitled to plead the privilege of silence except in a criminal case against him- self, but such is not the language of j the constitution. Its provision is that no person shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself. This provision must have a broad construction in favor of the ri?ht which it was intended to secure. The matter un ler investigation by the grand jury was a criminal matter, and the reason given by C mnselrnaa for his re fusal was that his answers might tend to criminate him. His apprehension was that the answers might show that he had committed a crime against the inter-state commercs act, for which he might be prosecuted. His answers, therefore, would b3 testimony against himself, and he would be com pelled to give thera in a criminal case. It was impossible that the mean ing of the constitutional pr rvision could onlv be that a person should not be compelled to be a witness in a criminal prosecution against himself. The ob ject was to insure that a person should not be compelled, when acting as a wit ness in an investigation, to give testi mony which might tend to show that he himself had committed a crime. The privilege is limited to criminal matters, but it is as broad as the mis chief against which it seeks to guard. The court then takes up the conten tion that, the investigation before the grand jury was not a criminal case, but solely to ascertain whether a crime had been committed, and it reaches the conclusion that the questions asked Counselman end his relation to the in quiry show that it was such a case aa entitled him to invoke the protection of the constitution. The court, therefore, rules that Counselman was entitled to refuse to ans wer and directs that the judgment of the circuit court be revised and the case remanded, with direction to dis charge Counselman from custody. Killed In a Mine. Dbsvkr, CoL, Jan. IS. lsaao Pearly was killed by an explosion of giant powder in the tunnel of the Pioneer mine at Aspen. CoL, between 11 and 12 o'clock last night. His right arm was completely torn off and his right leg was terribly mutilated. It is not known just how the accident happened, as the man was alone. He had just entered the tunnel with some powder, and the supposition is that he accidentally struck it against a projecting rock or in some way got it in contact with his candle. He was from Maine.

The baron added that if the colonies were successfully estab lished it was intended to send out 20,. 000 Jews during the present year. More land, he concluded, was wanted for colonization purposes.

S. d by the time the fifth bottle was finished the Abscess was entirely healed, and the child was well and happy. Jrs. J. A. WlEGNEE., SlatingUm, Pa. I had three little girls who were attacked with obstinate E CZEMA. or Blood Trouble, which at first resembled heat, but soon grew to yellow blisters, some of them quite lrge. One of the children died from the effects of it, bat we got Swift's Specific and gave to the other two, and they soon got well. S. S. S. forced oat the poison promptly. The cure was wonderful J. D. RAINS, Afa rtlurville, La. S. S. S has no equal for Children. It relieves the system promptly, and assists nature in developing the child's health. Oar Treatise mailed free.
