Troops Now Marching: to the Scene of Disturbance. Citizens of Mandan, N. D., Under Arms And Afraid to Go to Bed For Fear of An Outbreak. Associated Press Dispatches. Mandan, N. D., Nov. 18.—An easier feeling prevailed this morning because of the receipt of arms and ammunition. Six mounted friendly Sioux have been sent #o patrol tlie borders of the reserva tion. Settlers are coming in from all directions. The gravest fears are enter tained for the safety of settlers in the southern part of the county. Minneapolis, Nov. 18.~The Tribune's Mandan, N. D., special says: Every house in town is full to overflowing with refugees from the country districts. Most intense excitement prevails in the county. The settlers are preparing to believe anything about the Indians. In town a somewhat, less tension existsowing to the receipt of 300 guns today from the state government, and the iact that a company of soldiers will be here tomor row morning from Fort Totten. Tonight there are 200 Indians in town armed, but the citizens are armed, too, and patrols will be out, and the people will sleep with their clothes on. A date will be fixed by a committee of citizens and the Indian agent notified that after that any Indians found in this country with out a pass from the agent, will be killed on sight. The population is excited, and though conservative men are doing their best to quiet the angry feeling, there is every reason to believe that un less the government takes immediate steps to increase the force of soldiers at Fort Lincoln, every Indian coming into the country will be killed. Washington, Nov. 18.—The war de partment has received no news of any change in the situation at Pine Ridge". Standing Rock| and the other Sioux agencies. As competent officers are on the watch at all points where trouble is threatened, whose business it is to re port any significant events, it is taken lor granted that no immediate trouble is at hand. Acting Indian Commissioner Belt has received no recent information from South Dakota, which justifies the evi dent alarm oi the settlers in the neigh borhood of Pine Ridge agency. Belt is of the opinion that the government will not be justified in making any arrest or attempting to surpressing the ghost dances, so long as the Indians commit no acts of violence. This would surely make trouble. The proper course to pur sue is to let the Indians dance themselves out. It will not be long, he thinks, be fore they begin to lose faith in the Mes siah, and the whole craze will collapse. Belt is, however, strongly in favor of keeping a strong military force within call. This precaution has already been taken, and the government is not at all apprehensive of trouble. Bismarck, N. D., Nov.lß.—"Hie Tribune says there is no substantial foundation for the wild rumors of an Indian uprising at Standing Rock. The Indians are liv ing peacefully on the reservation. The agent there reports everything quiet and orderly. Conservative opinion is that the Indians do not dream of an out break. St. Paul, Nov. 18.—A Pioneer Press dispatch from Jamestown, N. D., says: The Messiah craze has struck the In dians at Fort Totten, and they are in clined to he ugly. One hundred armed bucks were seen crossing the railroad track at Minnewaukan, en route from the Turtle mountains, to join the Sioux at Standing Rock. They said they were going hunting. Chicago, Nov. 18,—Telegrams from Valentine and Crawford, Nebraska, and Cheyenne, Wyoming, say troops have been ordered from the forts to proceed to Pine Ridge to keep the Indians in check. Salt Lake City, Nov. 18.—All the troops at Fort Douglas, except one com pany, have received orders to hold themselves ready to march to tlie scene of the Indian troubles. Omaha, Nov. 18.—According to orders issued this morning, companies A, B, C and D of tlie Second United States infantry, at Fort Omaha, left for Pine Ridge agency this afternoon, with full complement of mules And wagons. The other companies were notified to be ready to move at short notice. Tlie troops at Fort McKinney were ordered out and left for Douglass, Wyo ming. The troops at forts Niobrara and Rob inson, which are not far from the scene of difficulty, will march tomorrow. It was stated that two reliable In dians, now in |the city, had told the army officers that there was no Messiah craze among the Indians just north of the Nebraska line. Private advices from Valentine give a different origin than the Messiah craze to the .Indians' uneasiness. Since August the Indians at Rosebud have been restless, claiming that the agent was not giving them a square deal on supplies. Some families living north west of Valentine have moved away. Alex Mounseau, an Ogallala Indian and government scout at Fort Robinson, is in the city, and said today, referring to the Indian craze: ''Some think it is so and some do not know what to be lieve. The Indians at Pine Ridge are dancing and meeting and talking. Some of them are wild about it, but some don't know what to believe." Bismarck, N. D., Nov. 18.— Late last night the city was startled by the alarm of an Indian outbreak. The report came from Mandan that the Indians at Standing Rock agency left the agency, and were advancing on Ft. Lincoln. The governor was called upon for aid, and by this morning excitement was intense. The reduction of the forces at Forts Lin coln and Yates has made the settlers apprehensive, for there are 0,000 Indians at Standing Rock agency alone. It was learned this afternoon, however, that the alarm was unnecessary. Everthing is quiet at Fort Yates, and no trouble is expected there. Very few soldiers are now kept in Uie forts in this neighbor hood, and the settlers are easily alarmed. The Indians could sweep the country west of the Missouri river, before assistance could be had, and the demand for enlarging the garrisons at Forts Yates and Lincoln will be re newed. Minneapolis, Nov. 18. —A Chadron, Neb., special to the Tribune says: It is reported here that the Indians at Dine Ridge agency have become unruly be yond control, and have already begun depredations in the way of stealing cattle and other property. Three hun dred soldiers from Fort Robinson passed through here today. Chicago, Nov. 18.—On receipt of dis patches tonight announcing the move ment of troops in the department of the Platte toward Pine Ridge agency, an Associated Press reporter called on Gen eral Miles. He said: "The newspapers really ought not to publish this sort of thing, for it will all be in the Indian camps in less than twenty-four hours. There is nothing in it, except that troops are being sent to the vicinity of the res ervations to prevent, if possible, any outbreak, and to encourage the local peace element among the Indians ; also to protect the agencies which report the Indians as turbulent and past control. It was hoped this excitement might pass without serious trouble, and up to this time no Indians have left the reserva tions. The causes of thia threatened trouble are the failure of their crops, de lay of congress in making appropriations for their support, and subsequent delay in getting supplies to them, resulting in their being brought to the verge of star vation and worked into frenzy. They are getting rations now and possibly the difficulty may be bridged over. The movement of troops is simply precau tionary, but at the same time they may have serious work." The reporter asked if it would not be unusual lor the Indians to go on the warpath at the beginning of winter. The general replied: "Not at all; those northern Indians are tougher than leather." St. Paul, Nov. 18.—General Ruger, commanding the department of Dakota, has returted from a visit to several west ern points. His aide, Lieutenant VVood ruff, referring to the Mandan scare, said: "The Indians located nearest Mandan are forty-five miles away, on the Cannonball river. They are thrifty, industrious, peaceful people, who have taken up claims, built huts and houses, own cattle, ponies and wagons, and are in good circumstances. They have no faith in aboriginal superstitions, and dislike this Messiah craze. People who have land, homes, cattle, wagons and crops are not anxious to go to war, and yet. these are the ones whom the people of Mandan have sent scouts to watch. The band which may give trouble is that headed by Chief Huiud, and situated Bouthwes"t of Standing Rock. He is very wild, and if the promised Messiah doe's not arrive in the spring, he will probabiy tell them the whites are using their influence to keep him back, and the best way to aid him is to kill some pale-faces. However, in any emergency, the troops will be fully equal to the occasion. It must be taken into account that some of the agents are new men, unused to the ways of the In dians." WORLD'S FAIR MATTERS. THE SQUABBLE OVER BUILDING SITES CONTINUED. mmissioner De Young Explodes a Bomb in the Camp of the Local Directory. The Local Authorities Stubborn. Chicago, Nov. 18. — The National World's Fair commission assembled again thia afternoon. The report of the committee on classification, completed, was laid before it. The site matter soon came to the front, Mr. Mercer of Wy oming offering a resolution to the effect that only the fine arts building be al lowed on the lake front. Under a reso lution previously adopted, evidently having in view the prevention of trouble, this resolution went to the committee on buildings. Commissioner De Young ol California then got up, however, and offered a preamble and resolutions setting forth that a double site was not agreeable to the judgment and business 3ense of the world; that there had been misrepresentation on the part of the Chicago local directory in regard to the use of the lake front, etc.; while they have temporarily rescinded their action, the commission feels that they may be imposed on again; therefore, resolved, that the action of the commission in accepting the various sites tendered them be rescinded, and the board of directors requested to immediately furnish the commission with a site where the expo sition can be held as one exhibit. This started quite a squabble, De Young refusing to let the resolution be shelved in committee. Finally it was ordered printed for consideration to morrow. Hopes are expressed among the commissioners that the site matter will be settled without further trouble. The South Pork board has declined to remove all the restrictions from the use of Waahington park, and thia even ing the local directory reaffirmed its ad herence to the plan of putting the main buildings on Jackson park and the Lake front.

Anxious to Unload. Washington, Nov. 18.—A prominent national bank of New York City made an offer to the treasury department to day to sell 100,000 ounces of silver at market rates. It was refused on the general ground that the department can consider offers only on the regular pur chasing days—Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. WEDNESDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 19, 1890. A TRADE BANQUET. An Event of Some Import- ance in Gotham. The Chamber of Commerce's Annual Blowout. Chauncey Depew and Grover Cleve land Exchange Compliments. Honors Rest Easy Between Them—Carl Schurz Also One of the After- Dinner Speakers. Associated Press Dispatches. New York, Nov. 18.—The one hun dred and twenty-second annual banquet of the New York chamber of commerce was held tonight. President Smith, in his address, said he was profoundly con vinced that reciprocity is the key which will open the wide door of commercial intercourse, and give to us an outlet for our surplus products. Chauncey Depew spoke at length on the events in the financial world. In the course of his speech, he said: "Within the past two weeks we have stood the strain of the re-purchase of all our bonds and stocks which Europe de sired to sell. It was a fearful test, but it was a superb demonstration of the strength of our financial situation, the soundness of our credit and the per manence of our prosperity. The break ing of the dam of this European reser voir may pour upon us a stream of se curities which may reduce values twen ty-live to fifty per cent. Such contrac tion would at certain times suspend the business of the country and bring about bankruptcy and ruin. These possibil ities will be averted as we grow rich enough to absorb our own secur ities. But to enlarge our avail able resources we must enlarge the area of the market for our surplus products. The solution of a dangerous problem and our future prosperity lies largely in the direction of commercial reciprocity among the nations of all America. Carl Schurz made a brief address, calling for such a revision of the tariff as will relieve our manufacturing indus tries of the artificial burdens which in crease the cost of those things they have to use in production, and give them a fair chance for export trade. Kx-President Cleveland was called on to say something. Depew had men tioned that congressman Springer had nominated Cleveland for the next Dem ocratic presidential candidate, and said he hoped the Republicans would nom inate that champion of reciprocity, James G. Blame. Mr. Cleveland was not on the pro gramme to speak, and arising made a few remarks. He said he had heard a good deal tonight about reciprocity with the Spanish speaking people. "Now if it is a good thing for them, why is it not a good thing to have reciprocity with our own peo ple ? We have heard about France help ing out England and the United States financially. Why cannot they do so commercially? I'm sorry friend Depew mentioned what Mr. Springer said, for it does not seem to me of much import ance, and of no interest lo you, gentle men." Mr. Cleveland jocularly referred to a banquet at Albany a "few years ago, when Depew had nominated him for the presidency, and hoped the Republi can party would nominate "that grand est of statesmen, the Plumed Knight, the name which rises to your lips, but not to mine." Mr. Cleveland added that he had rea son to believe that it was put that way, owing to Depew's extreme modesty. He said at the time that be would, when he got a good chance, put in a good word for Mr. Depew's candidacy, and he asked if this evened up Springer's re marks. EASTERN ECHOES.
