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

"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
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

. 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
Foundered at Sea.
London, Jan. 14. A dispatch was re

stating that the steamer Mie'oo has ar

it emerges from the hulL It allowed
the water to run into the shaft alley

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

impossible to launch her boats, even
had she had enousrh to carry all hands on

"SAND CREEK" MASSACRE.
An Old Historic Cm In the Court of
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
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, Jan. 13. Notwithstanding the
hard times that have prevailed in Italy,

Rride and Best Man Mangled.
PtTEBLO, Col., Jan. 13. 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. .

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
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
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.

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

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.
