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. rcrrciAi, txxxobax to the dispatch.! 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 being massacred. 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 wonld kill the first man who dared to touch the paper. Douglas Carlin and Bill Fielden stood alongside the commission. They at once, as did General Crook, saw the gravity of the situation, and appreciated that it was time to act The look that came over Gen eral Crook's face proved that he realized The Dangerous Situation of his asssociates, as well as of himself. Quick as thought he raised a chair above his head, looked into tho very eyes of Hump, and said: "You scoundrel, I'll brain you right here, if yoa make another . move." Carlin and Field en. with revolvers drawn. 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 filling this important trust lie Fell In Love with the youngest daughter of Fred Du prez, an old Frenchman united to a squaw, and much to the surprise of his friends, he married the girl two years ago. The wed ding was one of the most memorable ones ever celebrated in the West. It oc 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 Wonder n Well n a Merriment. The knot was, however, tied, and the father-in-law, who is the cattle king of -the reservation, presented his son-in-law with a branding iron and told him to brand 5,000 yearlings as his own. Notwithstanding Carlin's connection with the Indian race, he has always proved a valuable friend to the white settlers. A dispatch from Standing Bock Agency says: The first council was held this after noon. John Grass, Gaul, Bunning Ante lope, Mad"Bear.and other prominent chiefs aud a large number of Indians were present. After ' Some Preliminary Bemarka by Agent McLaughlin introducing the Commissioners, Governor 'Foster made the customary explanation of tho act of Con gress, and was followed by Major Warner. Both gentlemen made able speeches. The 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 Monday. xrom conversation with many persons more or less acquainted with the Indians, it is believed that for some weeks they have been Talking the Blatter Over. 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 dent determination to oppose the bill. The Commissioners are fully aware of the obstacles to be encountered, and have stripped for the fight I0YE AND MTJBDEB. The Bride Elopes With tho Beit Ulan nnd Returns to See Him and the Groom Shoot Each Other and to be Shot Herself. 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. His recovery is doubtfuL MAR! AM DOUGHERTY A FAILURE.

Prosperity was too much for Mary Ann, and she fell. One more connthas been added to the indictment which Grover Cleveland filed with Con gress, and her name is again on the police court records. Mary Ann was hauled up this morning charged with being drunk and disorderly. She begged the mercy of the court, as she was afraid, she said, of losing her official position. Judge Miller said he would give her another chance to go to work, bet told her that if she continued to get drunk she wonld have to go to the workhouse. Her personal bonds were taken, and she returned to work at the Seed Department HE HAD NO SPEECH TO MAKE, Keedlcss Precnntlona Taken for the Proper Hnnglng of a Murderer. Bayville, La., July 26. Qnite a crowd assembled around the jail here to-day, anxious to see the execution of Charles Sellers, who murdered Banyan Adams, in Bichland parish. At 2 o'clock tbe Sheriff requested the Bichland Bifles to appear upon the scene to be in readiness in case of an emergency. The military formed in line just outside the jail yard. When every thing was in readiness, the Deputy Sheriff, leading the condemned, ascended the stair way leading to the gallows. Adjusting the rope around the culprit's neck, the official asked him if he had anything to say. Sell ers replied: "No, I have said all I have to say." The drop fell at 3:30, and in 15 minutes he was pronounced dead. BRAKEMEN BANQUETED. Tho Ottawa Brotherhood Entertains the Delegates to the Convention. Ottawa, July 26.

A SPONTANEOUS COMBUSTION EPIDEMIC Twelre Million Dollars Infested fey One Company fn Water. 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 ing a lot of jewelry end valuables which were in her trnnk that was lost from the day express. A vigorous cearch was made at the rooms where the valuables were kept, but none such had been recovered. The pav office was closed up shortly after 3 o'clock again to-day, and the clerks went to their stopping place at uresson. ane poor people who receive the money have learned not to expect the office open after 3 o'clock; con sequently all business is about done for the day by the time tbe bank closes. money in the cabpet. 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 amount it will be turned over to the relief fund Bight hundred persons were to-day sup plied from the commissary at the Pennsyl vania Bailroad station. The time for clos ing this, the only commissary now opened, has not yet been decided upon. There is a large stock of tea, coffee, sugar and flour on hand and the place will not bo closed until these are distributed. No new supplies will, however, be purchased, and as the stock of different articles gives out orders' for them will be given upon the stores of the town. ' The boys of Company K, of tho Four teenth Begiment, practice daily at target shooting, and some of them are becoming quite efficient marksmen. Since Monday of this week nothing but provisions has- been distributed at the com missaries, but the stock of clothing on hand at the commissaries, thatwere discontinued, has been given to any one who would carry it away. The cleaning up of the odds and ends in these commissaries showed a won derful amount of clothing that 'was totally worthless. How some persons could ease their conscience by contributing worthless cast-off goods, tbat are not fit even for car pet rags, is a problem. Yet there are piles and piles of just such stuff that nobody will carry away, and it is being thrown on heaps and burned. FATHEB TEHANEY TO BEBtTCXD. 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 $5,000 to their members who suffered in the flood.

The American Water Works and Guarantee Company, of McKecsport, whose headquarters are at Pittsburg, to-day purchased the immense water works plant located at Littler Bock, Ark., through its general manager, Will S. Kuhn, of Pittsburg, who is at Little Bock. The plant " was operated and owned by a local company, and cost the purchasers $500,000. The company also purchased this week the plant at Jamestown, N. Y., for $400,000, and now owns and operates $12,000,000 worth of water works plants in the United States, which goes to show thaf the firm is one of the strongest water plant companies in the world. It is young but strong and has a capital of $5,000,000 paid np. Its stockholders are Pitts burg, ,New York, Chicago and Mc Kcesport capitalists, among which is 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 Jamestown plant The purchases involve 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 the American Water Works and Guarantee Company a few months since. General Manager Kuhn says that the company could secure contracts Tor bnilding a number of works in foreign countries, butrefuses all, as it prefers placing its capital in the United States. The company will'build several ex tensive plants this season and is arranging for this at present Snyder & Wilson, who built the model $25,000 pumping engines located at the Mc Keesport water works, to-day gave notice to the water company of that place that they would supply the engines in the next three months with a costly cylinder casting, weighing 13J tons, for the one which cracked through immediately after the pumps were put up.

LAW THAT HITS HARD. An English Firm Can't Send a Bookkeeper to It American Branch. 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 labor law. 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 Collector at New York to compel Hennessey to return to -ungiana. HE GOT OFF EAS1LT.

THE ROYAL 6EANTS1 Score a Victory Over the Oratory and the Logic of Bradlangb. SMITH'S SECRECY ABOUT SAYINGS. A Weak Spot in the Tory Ajgnment Jhat Leaders Don't Explain. HARTINGTONND CHURCHILL GIYE AID 'And tho GoTcrnmcnt Wins on Sentiment and Sot on Soundness. 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. had been handed to the Queen without the authority of Parliament and in breach of the statute. Cries of "Hearl" "Hearl" INFEBEED FBOM DENIED INEOBMATION. 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 sources. 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. Cheers. 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 plained of Mr. Bradlaugh's pedagogic and comminatory air. He said that if it was true 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 respectful attention. WINDING TJP WITH PLEASANTBIES. Sir Wilfred Lawson twitted the Conserva tives for refusing a grant to the Prince Con sort, and evoked laughter by recalling cer tain uncomplimentary references made by Mr. Chamberlain to royalty. Mr. Goschen, Chancellor of the Ex chequer, after refuting in detail the conten tions of Messrs. Labouchere and Bradlaugh, contrasted Mr. Gladstone's dignified utter ances with those heard to-night and said that there was little need to fear the result of the debate. Mr. Gladstone, Mr. Morley, Sir William Vernon Harcourt, Mr. Parnell, Mr. O'Brien and the bulk of the Liberals and Parnell itss voted with the majority. Tbe Radical minority inclnded Sir G. O. Trevylan, Bichard Chamberlain and T. P. O'Connor. Mr. Labouchere's motion to adopt his substitute for the report of the Boyal Grants Commission was rejected by a vote of 299 to 116. Mr. Morlev will on Mondav move an amendment declaring that the House is un willing to increase the burdens oi the peo ple without assurance that no further grants will be made: A GREAT AND GRAND OLD MAN.

Viscount Oxenbrldge presented to Mr. and Mrs. Gladstone an album, tbe work of the leading artists, commemorative of the occasion. Mr. Gladstone, in accepting the gift, made an eloquent and pathetic speech, which was free from political references. He said he felt as if drowned in an ocean of kindness, and be reciprocated their good will. He deemed it a noble calling to serve people as kind as they, and hoped they would all partake of the lull blessings be longing to them as Britons and Christians.

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-. papers. 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.

A Disastrous Flood Cantes the Hlsfortnne. Company's First The Bichmond Paper Company of Provi dence is unable to meet its liabilities, amounting to $800,000. Like the firm of Lewis Bros. & Co., it traces its misfortunes back to a disastrous flood. The mills have been closed, and the firm is expected to make an assignment 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 fully $800,000. 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 investment '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. TWO AGED PILGRIMS. They Walk All tbe Way From PIttsbnrg to Philadelphia. UrZCIAL TXXXCBAU TO TOE DISPATCH. 1 Philadelphia, July 26.
