want 1 in that war and not by pur
chase, they would be too Btrong for
our little government to handle,
should they tiko a notion to squelch
u. and yoa know these eyndjeatee
a' d corporations have very little Boul,
and especially for Indians, for roost of
them are like Uen. Sheridan was wnen
heeaid: "The only goad Indian ia a
dead one." Thia ia the Ncote.ti i,ana
and Cat lie Company I allude to, and,
should t iey succeed, Armour & Co.'a
little corner on bacon the other day
would be but a mnle hill by the side

ncaed and I believe a majority of our
people are, to leafiog it ai-aln at the
amli prica heretofore paid cf one and
three fiinrlbs cents an acre, wheu
artt'na lands on both aides ol tbe

Association leased it before, CJnsRler
ahlrt 'dirt' wa nlaved. and aouie of
our people a e prejudiced againat the
company that now kohls t'ie strip.
Yet there are people in tbe Btatea who

companies now pulling fi r it. There
is no telling what conclusion our ooan-
Cill will re.on In regard to ir, rnouuri
thit men who now have it have lieeu
nrnmnt in their naviuenls. and via!
fmit in erotectini our timber and
other iiitureuta out there, and may bo
willing to pay more than they have
been raving. Therefore, I lor one
would be wllllne to entertain an
other uronos.tioii from them, but
they sun not bop in hero as they did
before and leasx it wiinoui i pposiiiou,
bo one e'se knowing it was to be
leased. I am confident we can get
more than we ari now getiiog, sml we
ou:ht ti kOt every cent we can, for the

we will have them, and not before, if

Ou the arrival of a Lake Shore train
from Chicago, last night, it was dis
covered here that Bonn thing wrong
ninted iu the express car that runs
closed and sealed between Chicago
and New York. An eximination de
veloped tho fact that the car had been
entered and that sundry packages
containing valuable merchandise had
btten opened by tbe robbura and an
unknown quantity carried away. Tbe
axpiew fuela'B at once took steps to
rover all evidence of the crime and
set about to Mud a clew to the robbtr
or rubbers. The car had been opened
in tiaua t and evidently by some one
who know more than would be ac
credited to an ordinary tblef. Sua
Dicion was at once dioected toward
certain employes, but it ia hoped they
mav be exculpated irom an niame.

Chicaqi, III. November 2. A
novel suit will ha brought iu the
Uni'ed 8 atea Circuit Court, btfore
Judge Gresbam, by tbe at'oraeys f r
tbe R. G. Dun A Co. Mercantile
Agency. It seems tbat aome time
since the Farm Implement News Com

book called the Standard Implement
Directory containing the names and
ratings of all dealers in agricultural
implements, seedsmen, farm agents,
and others engaged In kindred inter

and ratings were stolen bodilv from
their reference book. Tbey declare
that in all their publications they pur
poaely misspell words and names and
allow other eriors of a trivial nature.
This is done in 'order to detect pira

piinted and plared on Bale at $15 a

Dun A Co. s t up the claim that under
the copyiight law each Individual

"Railway Legislation" is the sub

"A)Bahkerof Bankbrsvilli," is the
tit'e of a novel by Maniica Thomp
son, which Messrs. Casael A Co. an
nounce for early publication. The
story touches a question which will
attract the attention of oar next Con
gress, the question of a treaty (upon
extradition) with Canada. It is writ
ten in a new vein tor Mr. Thompson,
and has more dash thin poetry in ita
composition. .
Odida, under the title of "The Cities
of Italy," makes a fierce atta.k in the
A'ortA American Revitw upon tbe mu
nicipal government of modern Italy,
for permitting the destruction of art,
in tne personal interest of politicians,
speculators and meals. Walt Whit

paper on "Robert Burns aa p"et and

title of a neat volume just issued by

U. Mabon. of the Methodist chu'eh
on Union avenue. It is not claimed
tbat the work is a final settlement of a
much argued subject, but tbat it will
maka it better nnderatood. Baptism
is viewed not aa the door inti the
church, but as a covenant ordinance,
and theiemre open to children and all
others. K. F. Wl Is A Co., Main

view opens with an article by Kdmuod
Kirke, in which he claims that the
question, ' How shsll tha negro be ed

to the Reriew and ex racta f rom it are

easy mitter for one skilled with the
pen to construct a story, the incident

that is a gut that is shared bv legi than

The St.jbv of the Nations is the
most unique and the m st valuable of
the many 'Veries" now bftre the En

to tbe very dawning of hhtory, giv
ing all that ia kuoa u of the peoples in
their crude and early savpgn condi

and mo al cmdithi s in the plain and
unmistakable colors of truth. All
that is latest and h st, and then fire
reliable, in tbe sciences of ethnology,
of language, cf religion, of archeology,
of nat.onhood and government is bore

the difficulty he encountered in pro
