HARDtN, ls^d|strtct THEODORE tiionraiE, 5th district The Dc«d#ood New* call* earnestly for town organisation, *#*8 i': Ai* itoed w6od merchant, wheae goods were spared by the conflagration, announ ce* that he will sell them at twenty-five per cent leea than before the fire. His name is D. Holzman, and he is made of the right sort of material. Hf The Ute war seems to hire ended wliere it begun, with the massacre of Thornburgh and hits men. Now the proposition is to withdraw the trcops and send in the peace commissioners and fix up the little affair upon a basis of brotherly lore. ru mor come9 from the east that the Russian government has demanded from Constantinople immediate reparation for the insults to which the Russian consul general at Salonica was recently subjected by the populace of that city, threatening to send a war vessel to Salonica if the demand is not complied with. Other foreign consuls at Salonica have asked their governments for ins'ructions. Elections occur to-day in several of the eastern states, the most important contest falling to Ohio. Upon that state the inter eat of the nation is centered. Both parties cUim a victory in advance, though the re? publicans are far more sanguine than their opponents. We can not see that any effort has been spared by either party to bring about the result each desires. Every inch of the ground has been gone over and the grim old stumpersof the political field have now fallen back to listen to voice of the ballot* The moral effect of a victory in Ohio to day, for either party, will be felt in the pre sidential struggle of nest year and should it happen that it follows the lead of Cal ifornia and Maine, the backbone of repub licanism will be materially stiffened there by. Republican figure makers at the na tional capital have placed the majority in Ohio as high as 40,000. Hon. Solomon Spink appears in an an nouncement giving notice that be is an independent candidate for the offl:e of dis trict attorney. That Mr. Spink is a gentle man of ability we cannot bat concede, though we hold that this is no reason why republicans should vote for bim when the have a candidate of their own who posses ses 'he same characteristics. For several years past Mr. Spink has been a democrat apd we presume be still sticks to the politi cal creed of that party. The democrats of the second district have made no prepara tions to nominate a candidate for attorney and Mr. Spink's announcement will re lieve them of that important duty. Tbev will pick bim up. call him an independent and do their utmost to elect him under that disguise. Mr. Spink's candldacy«ives the republican party a foeman worthy of its ateel. During the campaign of year ago be was a leading democratic ttump talker and there were none in the veteran ranks of that party who could go further in de nunciation of republicanism than Mr. Spink. It will be a gratification to feel when the count ia made next month ttiat one ot the chieftains of the opposition band has been laid in his political grave. It is a singular fact that the greatest dan ger to our new railroad enterprise comes from the disposition of a few men living near town to prevent grading work upon their premises. They have ordered the graders away and the order has been obey ed. The committee had a meeting last sight and dec iAd to abindem the pMject uolesathi«fiffifcltycanbe overcome. The grievance- pot forward by these property owners is tbat the grading contract from Yankton to the Jim was let to Governor. Pennington, a mem ber of the eitizem' eoaalt^ It was generally uaderatood^tt}^ tije /xynmiuee was to have control of tbe grading con tracts, that they might be given to parlies whose lands were injured by the construc tion of the road. Tbe bid oi Governor Pen mupton was not considered by the commit tee, but the contract was awarded him di rect from the company's olBce. While tbia award may not be in strict accordance with the popular idea of fair dealing between men, we do not look upon it as of jjjiffl cieol importaoc*U ciose the abandoMent of ail oar pirns fair securiag ttae^ coveted new railroad. Io transactions of this mag nitude it Is frequently necessary to over come prrjudice and t« yield.to conditions •ot at all agreeable. The qtoject to be ne compllsbed is the great aim, and to attain tbis all minor considerations should be swept aaide. Because Governor Penning ton baa a grading contract of a few mllfetM note anfflclent^ekcuBe for tbe refusal of properly owners to permit railroad work to be done on their lands. We hope they will reconsideftbeirdwiaion and not oom pel tfce totouMt* to give Its labors wbea irift aear at haad. the fmntim iites. A" I""»» Account af Milk nf$»r MatUa. The following is an axtract from an arti ch in the Oarty Tines of the 4th inst, a BWW published irlthin a few. ibi lea of Ua compahgre agency, in Colorado: From Dr. J. H. Lacy, who came up to town yesterday, we learn the following facta concerning the massacre at the White river agency and affairs at Loe Pino. The troops who were: proceeding to the White river agency under command of Maj. Thorobijrgh,.wjere,.iBet aboukfifteen miles from taeageney by a party of Utee, how many the runners who brought the news to Chief Ouray do not stale.. Thorn burgh spoke in rather a peremptory man ner to the Utes, and as he spoke fingered a rifle which lay before him: on the/saddle. Suddenly, no warning being given him, he was ahot, the ballet entering just below his eye. A general fight ensued, which re aulted in the killing of some Utes and all the United States officers but one, who, with the soldiers, waa surrounded by the Indians and cut off from water. At the time the last runner came into Oaray from White river these men were still alive. The Utes then proceeded to tbe agency, and attacked tbe employes, who bad barri caded themselves in one building. The house was set on fire, and the men shot one by one as they rushed out. Axeni Meeker and eveiy employe at tbe agency are dead, but the late of the three women Who were there is still in question. Immediately up on the Intelligence reaching the Los Pinos agency Maj. W. M. Stanley sent Joseph Brady to tbe White river agency, acooui panied by a body guard of fifteen Utes sent by Ouray. It Is possible if tbe party reach White river before tbe soldiers are alL kill ed that thoir lives may be saved, Oaray sendinit a positive command to the hostile Uies to cease fiitbting When tbe outbreak first occurred, Ouray had started on a big bunt, wbich was to have lasted three months, but the news, carried through to him by a runner in twenty-four hours, caused his speed) le'urn to the ageucv, and be is now thete. Ouray has always been a firm fiiem] tbe whites, and this horrible massacre lilib bim with grief. We may De assured thui it any effort of his can save tbe imperilled lives of tbe troops at tbe seat of war they will I it saved, and bis past reputation leads us .to believe tbat should there be danger of an insurrection among the Uncompahgre Utes the people will be warned by bim. He has called in all the hunting parties which were out, intending to keep them under his own eye, and not let them have any grounds for serious fears that an attack will be made upon our people by the Uncoinpahgre Utes. While we approve of the precautions which have been taken, as a measure of safety, we hardly think it possible that the Utes at LOB PinoB would dare to go upon the war-path in the face of Ouray's direct commands. To our thinking the danger is principally to settlers around, who might be attacked by a band of White river Utes or a few renegades from Los Pinos. There fore we heartily approve of the wive* and children of the exposed settlers being sent to Ouray, as we notice is being done at this time. Nothing would hurt Ouray so much as Indian troubles, and we cannot afford to have any false alarm raised. Every possi ble precaution has been taken to prevent any surprise. An efficient volunteer force has been raised, which can be called into active service at any time. We have arms and ammunition, and have scouts who will give warning at the first symptom of danger. Therefore we can afford to keep cool and await developments. LATER.—Maj. Stanley, the agent, came up to Ouray this morning, and report everything quiet at the agency, and no fur ther received from White river. Ouray, he says, is rick with anxiety and trouble, but is confident that there will be no trouble among his Utes. As long as they remain quiet no danger may be apprehended in this part of the country. The southern Utes have sent a runner to Ouray, with as surances that the White river Utes would have neither support or encouragement from them. The major has returned to his post. THE DEXVEK INDIANS. referred to in the Loe Pinos dispatch relat ing to Meeker's death and the fight at Milk creek are bands of four chiefs and visited Denver last summer to see Gov. Pitkin to hive Agent Meeker removed. The chiefs' names were: Capt. Jack, leader of the baud Sahwitz, MUMsea and Unkumgood. These chiefs spent two days here, and called twice on Gov. Pitkin with frivolous complaints against Agent Meeker. Capt. Jack did all the talking, he speaking Eng lish and there being no interpreter. .No complaint was made of failure to pay an nuities or dues or of encroachments on the reservation. Jack found fault with nothing except Meeker's romantic efforts to civilize the tribe, and the fact that he uoed beef from the government herd of cattle at the ency, instead of buying from abroad, ck argued that the Utes owned the cattle, and Meeker had no right to kill them whereas, the government bought and paid for them as a matter of economy. White river valley is a good grazing country, and the government has fed the Indians out of the increase of the herd since tbe first pur chase^ without any additional expense whatever Capt. Jack indignantly repu diated the idea that he would work or al low bis children to be educated. He want ed. several things, among others work horses and wagons, to which he was not en titled. He repudiated Ouray as chief of the confederated Utes, saying: "Ouray plaved out same as white man." Jack is a practical rascal, but a bold leader. He no doubt led the fijhting at Milk crtek, and it was doubtless by his orders that Meeker and the agency people were killed. The other chiefs who visited Denver with him were similarly minded, and should be punished as severely as he before a truce is declared. The people of Colorado will never allow those Indiana to live in the state, and if the Indian bureau wants to save their worthless lives it must lake them out of the state. "HERR 8HOOTTZ" WAS VERY MAO. Stad When He Got the News ikl Ota Outbreak, His State of Ml Y:Y. St. Louis Times-Journal Intreview. When a Times-Jaurnal reporter sought admiasion to the Preetorius manaion on Park avenue yesterday, a buxom looking Teutonic maiden appeared at ibe front dfSnr. *Ts Mr. Schurz In inquired tbe rapor ter. "Herr Shoortz has gone down town.^aaid tbe buxom female "gone to tbe office, I belley'e, with Herr Preetorius." "Got in thie mofaiift. eb "Yea came on tbe early train—lock breakfast here and Ib'tn lay down for a nap. Be waa very tired," Tba buxom female appealed qpittfttuaica Uv^ but dropped no bint about ibe pro priety of the reporter's coming lato the bouse. r- "Qow long will Mr. Schura be in the GlUJ" asked the reporter. *W«I1,1 don't know," replied the buxom feniale, "but I'll find out." Sha'drew away from the door apiece and driifi "Fraulein!" .A voice from the second story inquired what was the matter, "How long is Herr Shoorlz going to stay? "Goes away to-night at half-past seven." said the voice, and tbe buxom female re sumed her statuesque pose at the door. "Mr. Schurz is looking well, is lie?" ed t,he reporter. "Oh, yes, sir I never saw lura so well, but he is very much put out about the In dians* I Believe he would kill them all if he was out there—you know he was afield marshal during the war, and Iierr Preeto rius says he was the greatest fighter in the army." "He's worried, is he "Yes, about the Indians. The first thing he did this morning was to read the papers about the battle, and everv once in a while he would hit tbe table with his fist and use hard words, and he complained that the beefsteak wasn't rare enough—something Herr Shoortz never does when he isn't,tx cited." "What did Dr. Preetorius do? "He didn't do anything but sit and watch Herr Shoortz. After breakfast Mr. Shoorlz went into the parlor and played on the piano—the tune he always plays when he feels bad. He can play beautiful, and when he puts his foot on the soft pedal and lays that sad-like tune, it always makes err Preetorius cry." "What tune is it "I don't kuow—I nr\cr heard any one lilay it but him. Herr Preetorius has tried to whistle it several times after the elec tions went wrong, but he can't whistle it like Herr Shoortz can play it—oh, no sir." "What was he doing the rest of the morn ing?" "Sleeping, sir but I guess he didn't sleep very sound, for, for we could hear him talking in his sleep and pounding the wall, and after he went away we found the mosquito bar all torn and mussed." "\ou don't hear anything about Mr. Schurz getting married, do you?" asked the reporter. 'So, not much," said the buxom crea ture, "but I think Her Shoortz would like to be married, for he is very fond of the ladies. He carries a lad'ys picture around with him in his satchel. He showed it to Herr Preetorius this morning and when Herr Preetorius' back was turned, Herr Shonrti kissed the picture." "You tell that gentleman that Mr. Shoortz can be seen at the office," said a voice from the second story, evidently ad dressing the buxom female in the doorway, and then there was a significant "ahem" that so chilled the buxom female that she 'Irew herself into the hall ani shut the door. GOV. HOWARD AT DEADW00D. He Appears Before a Crowded House ana Makes a Speech. Deadwood New*, 8th. At 8 o'clock last night the Congregational church was filled to its utmost capacity by the elite of Deadwood society, who were present to listen to the Hon. Gov. Howard's discourse. A little after 8 o'clock Rev. Mr. Atwood ascended the rostrum and introduced the governor in a few short and appropriate words. The honorable gentleman stepped forth and was received with loud exclama tions of delight. He asked what waa gov ernment—didn't mean any humbug or highfalutin nonsense. But what was gov ernment? It was simply an organized good to restrain the bad, to punish crime, to pro tect the weak—an organized power to pro tect right and punish wrong. He would not go into any lengthy discourse of this parti cular point, but confine his remarks to ourselves. He would like to speak about Dakota. "Our territory," said the governor, "is four times as large as Ohio. In the course of time it will become one or more great states. It is a wonderful fact that since the United Slates became a nation, down to tbe present time, the increase in population has become in ratio 12 per cent greater than last year." To-day our republic's population is 40,000, 000. In another 100 years we will have at least 80,000,000 of people enjoying the wealth and produce of this great country. And I don't know but that about 1999 we will have a complete 100,000,000 of popula tion. Thst is, if the same ratio continues as it does now. Friends, if this number of people inhabit the United States of Amer ica, what will be the condition of Dakota? I leave you to judge. It is as wonderful a thing aa have ever characterized a nation In a few years we will have a railroad, or more than one, perhaps, coursing through this beautiful Black Hills country. With it will come other evidences of your pros perity, aid you deserve it. My admira tion for tbis country is greater than ever since lb* recent catastrope wbich has over taken you, and has made many of you poor. But, let me tell you right here, tbat what I admire most is your indomlnitable pluck in helping one another and refusing all aid from outsiders. I am and will be only too happy to offer you any assistance—and on the spot. It is only a mile, but you are wclcome to it. Tbis is genuine pluck, and may your refusal* of all aid only be a means of rebuilding your town in more beautiful proportions tbsn ever before is the *i*h oryou^fond admirer before vnu. You are all koad citizens, and whether white or black, I should be rroud to shake any man's band who will step forward and do me that honor." Immeose applause followed tbis sally W^ Jtgret that we are unaple to publish in fulrtne govehior's speech, afc space does not permit. Bt ibe conclusion of the address all pre sent stepped forward and were introduced to the governor by Rev. Atwood. and retlr ed io excellent spirits. Tbe goYernor is a mtD, 60je»rapf«ge, wiihadtrk eye which alternately flashes, with patriotic en thusiasm. He wears a abort beard which is white with age. He has won tbe hearts of o,nr people, and they wish bim alone and bappy life. A PLUCKY BANK CLERK. Winchendon (Mass.) Soectat. 7th.
