The Indian Commission has met with a
serious obstacle. The chiefs and braves.
xitb whom they are dealing are disposed to
be very ugly. Indeed, General Crook's
courage alone prevented violence from a
treacherous redskin at the Cheyenne agency.

Cheyenne Agency, "Wyo. T., July
26. The Cheyenne Agency has had its
visit from tbe Sioux Commissioners, and
strange as it may appear, here, where they
expectedto have smooth sailing, proved to
be the hotbed of Sitting Ball's hostilities.
Chief Hump, of the Indian police, -who
had all along professed great friendship
for the whites, and was so anxious to
sign the treaty, exhibited the treachery of
the Indian race by attempting to lead a
hostile crowd toward committing violence,
which movement was only averted by the
courage of Gen. Crook, Douglas Carlin and
Bill Fielden, the latter two squaw men. At
this same agency Bishop Whipple, of Min
nesota, and his associates narrowly escaped
A Host Impressivo Scene.
It was on the third day after tho arrival
of the commission. The Indians, accom
panied by squaws and papooses, swarmed
by the hundreds around tho Government
buildings, and the noise of the tom-tom,
chant of the sqaws, and pow-wow of the
bucks could be heard all nightlong. The
prairie was a city of tepees, and
the Indians, decked oat in war
paint and costumes, did not present
the most pencetble appearance. Hump, old
Sitting Bull's chief aid in the Custer massa
cre, was absent, and Agent McChesney
ordered a vigorous search, but it proved
fruitless. The Commissioners had finished
explaining the advantages of the bill, and
presented the paper for signatures.
One of Them Willing; to bicn.
Not a red moved. After earnest solicita
tion a young buck signified his intention to
take the pen. Almost before he had
dropped the words from his lips, Swift
Goose jumped into the circle, and with one
yell caused the Indians to leap in one mass,
and almost before they could realize what
had happened, Hump, with' his painted
hostiles, rushed in and asserted that ho

as did General Crook, saw the gravity of
the situation, and appreciated that it was

stepped up alongside of the General, and at
the muzzles of the revolvers the Indians
were ordered to arrest the hostiles and throw
them into the guard house. This being
done, General Crook made a telling address,
in which he denounced Hump and his fol
lowers so severely that the Indians were
only too glad to retire for the night.
Douglas F. Carlin, one of the heroes in
this affair, is a native of Illinois. Some
years ago he came "West to act in the
capacity of Quartermaster's chief assistant,
which position he held until appointed
chief clerk of the Cheyenne Agency. While

curred at the house of Duprez, and
was attended by the Mayor and
Council of Pierre, and hundreds of citi
zens. Irdians also came hundreds of miles.
Douglas Carlin appeared, dressed in a
broadcloth suit, patent leather shoes, white
tie and silk hosiery, and the Indian maiden
reclining on his arm. It was a peculiar
love match, and created

Commissioners, Governor 'Foster made the
customary explanation of tho act of Con

Indians listened with close attention, but
gave no evidence of interest in the.
matters discussed. At the close
of the council, however, it was
announced that IS beeves would be issued,
and during the conversation which fol
lowed with reference to details, the Indians
were thoroughly interested, and finally all
the chiefs shook hands with evident good
humor. The next council will be held on

and it is said that they have bound them
selves sot to accept the Government's prop
osition. As at Cheyenne, the police force is
practically unanimous in opposing it Many
of the employes are either mixed bloods or
men who have been for years incorporated
in the tribe. All these men, from the best
information attainable, are believed to be
using their influence to the same effect
In spite of all the efforts of the agents for
years past, the Indians are still, in all
matters affecting their general interests, con
trolled by the wishes and advice
of their chief, many of these
are men of more than average
ability, industrious and progressive, and
have for years been successful farmers, and
it is very difficult to account for their evi

obstacles to be encountered, and have

Chico, Oal., July 26. An elopement,
which occurred hee a few days ago, cul
minated in a tragedy this afternoon. The
wedding was to have taken place last Mon
day, between a young man named Raymond
Bierce, son of a San Francisco journalist,
and Miss Eva Adkins, a beautiful young
lady 17 years of age. Bierce's most inti
mate friend was a handsome young man'
named Neil Hubbs, and he was to have
acted as best man at the wedding ceremony.
The day before the marriage was to occur,
Miss Adkins left her, home and went
to a neighboring town with Hubbs,
where the couple were married.
They returned here the next
day and this morning prepared to make a
call upon the bride's mother, Mrs. Barney.
Bierce heard of the intended visit, and went
to Mrs. Harney's bouse before them. When
Hubbs and his wife arrived he entered the
parlor and fired at Hubbs with a revolver.
Hubbs fell to the floor, but also drew a re
volver and fired. Four shots apiece were
fired, when Hubbs ran out of the room.
Bierce then placed the revolver to Mrs.
Hubbs' head and fired, inflicting a severe
but not dangerous wound.
Hubbs re-entered the room end beat
Bierce to the floor with his revolver. Bierce
then dragged himself into an adjoining
room, placed the pistol to his head and blew
his brains out He lived about an hour and
a half. Bierce also received two bullets in
the body, and Hubbs was shot through the
abdomen, the ball penetrating the spleen.

The most important item from Johnstown
to-day is that Congress will be petitioned
for an appropriation to make the town safe
by dredging and widening the streams.
rsrEClA-TXXXOBAKTO TUX DISPATCH. J
Johnstown, July 26. The question of
applying for national aid to widen and
dredge the streams around Johnstown is be
ing agitated. The citizens say that unless
something is done to prevent the annual
overflow that the town will never be built up
again. This is undoubtedly true of the low
lying districts, and an earnest effort will be
made to present the situation to Congress in
snch a light that an appropriation may be
made for clearing up the rivers. The citi
zens say that it is impossible for the people
to undertake this herculean task, and unless
the national Government does something
for the stricken city it can never be rebuilt.
The Finance Committee, it is understood,
have taken some steps already in the matter,
but jnstin what way it will be brought
before Congress is not known.
Captain Hamilton to-day received a letter
from Miss Bedson, Lowell, Mass., describ

but none such had been recovered. The pav

Some days ago an honest resident of one
of the adjoining townships purchased sev
eral rolls of carpet that had been in the
flood. When unrolling it to-day he was
surprised to find a number of packages of
money, amounting in all to 1,160. It is
supposed that the money had been secreted
in the carpet by someone who had picked it
up shortly after the flood and afterward lost
track of it If no owner appears for the

Bight hundred persons were to-day sup

Bev. Father Tehaney, pastor of St John's
Catholic Church, effected a settlement with
the insurance companies, receiving (20,000
out of a total insurance of $22,000. He will
build a temporary wooden structure for his
congregation to worship in at once, and ex
pects to have the foundation completed this
fall for a substantial brick church. Two
available sites belong to the congregation,
and it is not known which one the new
building will 'be erected on. The Convent
of the Sacred Heart, which was partially
destroyed, and in which all the Sisters of
Mercy were saved while at prayer, will be
rebuilt, and a memorial tablet erected in re
membrance of the great flood.
The Board or County Commissioners have
unanimously decided to exonerate from
county taxes all properties in the" flooded
district This will reduce the revenues of
the county very "largely, and a loan will
have to be effected to keep up current ex
penses. Fortunately the finances of the conn
tv will be in good condition, tho last of the
indebtedness having been lifted last fall.
It is supposed that the borough and school
authorities will also exonerate from taxes
property in the flooded parts of the town,
but where the money to keep things going
is to come from is a serious question.
The officials of the Improved Order of
Bed Men, were here yesterday and paid out

the firm is one of the strongest water plant
companies in the world. It is young but

John H. Flagler. General Manager Kuhn
will at once have the Little Bock plant
made a filtering plant at a cost of $50,000 or
more in order to give clear water at all
times, and will make like changes in the

alarge amount of money, but the company
has the money to invest, and buys none but
plants that will bear the most rigid test and
will prove a good investment, as it did
in the unattanooga worJcs, which is tne
largest in the county, and was purchased by

Company a few months since. General
Manager Kuhn says that the company could

Washington, July 26. The Secretary
of the Treasury to-day decided an interest
ing question arising under thealien contract
labor law. It seems that Irvin and Sellers,
merchants, of England, who have a branch
house in New York City.recently discharged
a bookkeeper in their New York house, an
American, named James T. Watson, and
sent over a bookkeeper in the home" office
named Edward F. Hennessey, to take his
place. Watson complained to the Collector
at New York and the result was that when
Hennessey arrived at the port the Collector
reiused to allow mm to land, on the ground
that it would be a violation of the contract
An appeal was made to the Secretary of
the Treasury and he instructed the Collec
tor to allow Hennessey to land on giving
bond in the sum of $500 for his return in
case it was decided that he came within the
prohibitory class. The question was re
lerred to the Solicitor of the Treasury and)
that official rave an opinion that as Hen
nessey had clearly come to this country
unaer a contract ntiaoor, his landing wonli
be a palpable violation of law. The Secretar
coincided in this opinion and instructed thJ

to return to -ungiana.

The Tory' Government scored its victory
yesterday on the royal grants in spite of
Bradlaugh'spointed speech andLabouchere's
quick wit that found the weak spot in Mr.
Smith's oratorical armor.
London, July 26. When the debate on
the royal grants was resumed in the House
pf Commons to-day Mr. Bradlangb said he
found difficulty in discussing the question
calmly when Mr. Balfour outside of the
House denounced the objections as disgust
ing and sordid. The opponents of the
grants meant nothing personally discourt
eous to the members of the royal family.
but were simply acting within their rights
when they met the demands of the Crown
on a question of finance with a direct nega
tive. Much of the argument in fayor of
the grants was based on the erroneous idea
that the Crown, under the civil list acts
from George I. onward, surrendered its
private property in exchange for a civil
list Neither George L nor his successors,
Mr. Bradlaugh declared, surrendered
anything. The present royal family never
surrendered anything ot a farthing value to
the country. The committee of inquiry had
elicited the fact that during the present
reign the savings upon certain classes un
der the civil list act, instead of being ap
plied to defrav the charcres of other classes.

authority of Parliament and in breach of
the statute. Cries of "Hearl" "Hearl"

The EtHon.W.H.Smith, the Government
leader, denied that the alleged savinss of
the Queen were over 3,000,000, but he de
clined to show how much money had either
been saved by the Queen or, drawn by the
other members of the Boyal family from all
Mr. Labouchere said there ought to he
nothing to conceal. The fact of the con
cealing led to exaggerated ideas. The re
fusal of the Government to disclose the
wealth amassed by royalties justified the
aversion of the country to royal grants.
Lord Bandolpb. Churchill argued that the
original demands of the Government were
just, besides being in conformity with pre
cedent Ii burdens were thrown upon the
Crown not intended under the civil
list, it would impair the credit
of the nation and of Parliament.
Mr. Bradlaugh had questioned the title
of the Crown to its estates, but successive
Governments had recognized, and none of
the greatest lawyers had ever vet challenged
the Crown's title. He reminded the House
that Sir Henry F. Ponsonby, Her Majesty's
private secretary, a few years ago denied re
ports that the.Queen was making immense
investments in gronnd rents, and stated that
she had not 1,000,000 to invest in any
thing. THE THBONE SOLID WTTH THE MASSES.
Lord Randolph said the Liberals' over
estimate of the Queen's wealth was designed
to excite popular feeling against royalty.
He objected to the adoption of methods the
purpose of which was to foment a clamor
against the throne whicb( in spite of them,
would remain steadfast in the affections of
the people. Cheers.
During the debate Lord Hartington com

tbat the law was contravened in allowing
civil list surpluses to accrue to the Crown,
it was almost a case for impeaching the
jfescnt and former Ministries. It was im
possible, he contended, to lay down a hard
and fast rule. He thought that the Queen's
waiving the claims of the younger children
met the present case, and that the future
might be left to a future Parliament In
any case the Queen's message was worthy of

Another ol the Suspects In the Removal of

rSPrCIAJ.TU.ZO BAM TO TUB DISFATOH.l
4 Tobonto, Ont.,. July 26. William
D wyer, the street car driver, whom recent dis
patches from Chicago have mentioned in
connection with the '"removal" of Dr.
Cronin, has been located at Kelly's Hotel,
West Toronto Jnnction, where he is filling
an engagement as '"bartender, a position he
has occupied ever since he left Chicago.
"Kelly is proprietor of the hotel
and is married io a sister of
"Billy," that being the name by which
Dwyer is the most familiar to the fre
quenters of tbe house. Growing demands
of Kelly's trade in that thriving western
suburb convinced him some time ago tbat he
needed assistance, and he wrote several
times to Billy, requesting him to leave Chi-,
cago and accept the situation of bar tender.
His last letter was in the nature of a de
mand, for in it he told him that if he did not
come on by Saturday of that week his posi
tion would be given to some one else. Billy
came on, and ever since has been dispensing
summer beverages to tbe thirsty Junction
ites. But to-day he was absent from his
accustomed place behind the bar.
A reporter went ont to see Mr. Dwyer,
bat Billy was absent. His brother-in-law,
Kelly, was in, however. Kelly was angrv.
He said Billy was in the city, and he did
not know when he would be back. But if
Billy had been there, Mr. Kelly added, he
would not have said anything to a reporter,
nor to anyone else for tbat matter. He
wonld do all his talking through a lawyer,
and his business in the city was to consnlt a
prominent firm of lawyers, with a view to
bringing libel suits against the JVetcj, the
Telegram and the Mail, all Toronto news-.
This was all the information as to Dwyer's
whereabouts and probable course of action
Landlord Kelly would vouchsafe. He tried
to find language .strong enough to convey
his contempt for the journal which had pub
lished what he characterized as "a pack of
lies" about Dwyer. When the writer with
drew he was still declaiming eloquently. to
a small knot of his patrons about the
iniquity ot calling "an innocent b'ye a mur
derer." WALKING UPON WATER.

Boston, July 26. A novel wager was
made at Young's Hotel to-day between John
Donnelly and a well-known politician who
is recognized as Hon. M. M. Cunniff 's right
bower in the present Democratic city rum
pus. Mr. Donnelly is the backer ot Prof.
C. W. Oldrieve, the water pedestrian, whose
triumphs on the water astonished New
Yorkers last year. The politician was in
clined to the belief that Oldrieve's perform
ance was confine'd to the smooth water of a
pond or quiet stream, and offered to bet $250
that he could not walk on the ocean. Mr.
Donnelly at once covered the money,
agreed to forfeit it if PrOf. Oldrieve did not
walk from-any point in Massachusetts Bay,
20 miles from Boston, to the main land.
The novel tramp will be made to-morrow,
Olrieve will not, according to tbe
terms of the wager be obliged to walk 20
miles, for the stipulation was tbat his start
ing point should be 20 miles from the city of
Boston, buthe will be obliged to walk fully
a dozen miles before reaching the main land".

SPECIAL TZLSOBAK TO TBI DISPATCH.1
Pbovidence, July 26. A big failure,"
which takes good-sized fortunes out of the
pockets of several millionaires, is tbe sensa
tion of the day in this city. The Bichmond
Paper Company has closed its $1,000,000
plant at East Providence and announces its
inability 'to meet liabilities aggregating
The mills have not been making money
for some time, and the millionaires who
were trying to float the company gave it np
as a bad job. That brought matters to a
crisis and the mills were closed. The
creditors have had a somewhat anxious day
of it, and the majority seem to favor
an assignment There are many creditors .
and they ore mostly large ones. The great
est indebtedness is for pulp wood, brimstone
and fneL The new creditors are an entirely
new class of men from the original ones who
engaged in the enterprise.
V SOME OF THE I.OSEBS.
Among the men who have lost small for
tunes, bordering on $100,000 each, are ex
United States Senator Anthony, Colonel
George W. Danielson, editor of the Journal;
Srank Bichmond Harvey, well known
lumber merchant, and Postmaster Henry
W. Gardner, who lost about $200,000. All
that each of these men put into the concern
has gone and
They never realized one cent from their
'A note went to protest the day before yes
terday, and a meeting of creditors was im
mediately called. Just how far the stock
holders are liable is unknown. At the time
of the former failure tbe capital was $200,
000 and there was a mortgage for $400,000.
Eleven capitalists then put in another third
of a million and took a blank mortgage for
the( amount of $247,000. The liabili
ties in January last were given
as $668,000, and assets, as taxed,
$884,900. In June last the blanket mort--gage'was
put on record, but was dated back
to January. This impaired the company's
credit, and the commercial agencies in July
gave the company no rating. The stock
holders are all wealthy men.
WHEN .THE TBODBLE BEGAN.
Two years ago tbe company became em
barrassed. The liabilities were then a
ronnd million of dollars. A settlement
was had at 33 cents on the dollar,
and Henry Gardner and F. Bich
mond, tbe well-known paper merchants
here, made a settlement with the con
cern on notes indorsed. The amount of pa
per indorsed by these two men amounted to
$660,000. They settled for $75,000 each and.
this -money was paid to the creditors.
Then the property was mortgaged
to secure the creditors for fur
ther 'indebtedness. The management
changed after this, and for awhile things ran
along smoothly. It ii found to-day
that .the concern is quite as badly
involved as at the time of the first
trouble, and that there is no way to
tide over the embarrassment. Just how
much the present failnre is for is unknown
at present, but it is about $800,000 on a
good calculation by those who are presumed
to know something of the concern's affairs.
The mills in East Providence are well sit
uated on the Seekonk river, which is nav
igable by sailing vessels and is used by the
company for pulp wood shipments.
The most modern foreign machinery
was introduced at a great cost and
put in, and the works are complete in every
respect The first misfortune to overtake
the company was the great flood, which
washed out "a dam that cost about $40,000.
This had to be rebuilt.
