Associated Press Dispatches.
Guthrie, 0.T.. Sept. 23.-It tran
spires that the story of two negroes be
ing killed at Dangston yesterday is false.
A couple of cowboys told a negro that he
had better move, as they bad killed a
couple of negroes already. The fright
«ned negro, fresh from Texas, spread the
■lory. A dozen other stories of the same
nature occupied the tongues of every
body. Only tenderfeet believed them.
The rush was not accompanied
by a single killing. The negro
colonists were not very successful
There is considerable trouble in find
ing section stones. The country was
surveyed seventeen years ago against
the wishes of the Indians, and the
"noble red man" followed the surveyor
and dug up many section stones. A
courier from Tecumseh, the townsite of
the lower county-seat, states that the
site was proclaimed open to settlers at
noon today. Two thousand people
rushed in and claimed lots. There was
no disturbance. Chandler, the county
seat of the upper connty, will be opened
tomorrow. Troops are guarding the site
to prevent intrusion.
EXCITEMENT SUBSIDING.
The excitement here is subsiding. In
front of the land office there is a large
crowd waiting to file claims. Fully 10,
--000 people were in line when the office
opened this morning, and when the
door was opened the crowd made a rush,
and for a while it rooked as though
there would be a riot.
Revolvers were pulled, but the police
prevented further disturbance. A con
ductor on an incoming train said all the
roads leading to the city were filled
with wagons, horsemen and pedestrians
headed this way.
cowboys' lies.

McKeever, of General Miles's staff, re

commandant at Fort Reno, today, say
ing everything is peaceful among the
boomers in the Cherokee strip.
General McKeever discredits the re
port that serious trouble has oc
curred among the home-seekers
saying if anyone had been killed the
troops would have heard of it. "The
truth of the matter is," said he, '"the
cowboys and other people down there
would rather lie than tell the truth, and
from them I have no doubt the reports
of conflicts originated."
COMPLETED WITHOUT TROUBLE.
Washington, Sept. 23.—Secretary No

Commit* Snlcide.
Kansas City, Mo., Sept. 23.—A special
from Marysvi 11, Mo., says: Ex Gover
nor Albert Moorehouse committed sui
cide at his residence this morning.
Several weeks ago the governor got
overheated while driving cattle, and
had been in a very nervous condition
since. At times he had been delirious
and was very much depressed He was
taken out for a drive by a
friend last night, but became so much
excited that he was brought home and
a physician called. He became quieter
daring the night and slept quietly.
While the watchers were in another
room he cut a gash in his throat about
four inches long with a common pen
knife.
Governor Moorehead was born in Del
aware county, Ohio, July 10, 1835, and
came to Missouri in 1856. He was a
lawyer, and always took a prominent
part in Missouri politics. He was elect
ed lieutenant-governor on the Demo

WASTE PAPER.
The January Receipt* Canceled by the
State Board of Examiner*.
Sacramento, Sept. 23. —In accordance
with the law passed by the iast legisla
ture, the state board of examiners this
morning canceled what are known- as
the January receipts, amounting to
$53,752. This was the sum stolen by
tbe late Arthur D. January, when dep
uty state treasurer, from moneys depos
ited by various county treasurers for
convenience in making their settlements
with the state. The legislature of '85
passed an act reimbursing the county
treasurers for their losses, but the re
ceipts have since been counted as cash
in making up the state's account of
money in the treasury. This is now
done away with, as the receipts are not
worth the paper they were written upon.
THE BALANCE OF TRADE.
THE TIDE NOW TURNED IN AMER
ICA'S FAVOR.
Large Drain of Gold From Europe-to the
United States—A British Financier
Predicts a Crisis in America on Ac
count of the Nation's Silver Policy.
London, Sept. 23. —A representative
of the Associated Press had an interview
with the Rothschilds, Speyers, Lazard
Bros, and other bankers, and they all
agree to the statements that further
large shipments of gold are going to
America. The Rothschilds dispatched
an additional $100,000 today.
In an interview with Robert Giffen,
head of the commercial department and
comptroller of corn returns for the
British board of trade, he was asked
what truth there was in the calculation
that England and the continent would
be forced to part with gold amounting
to £60,000,000 to pay for imports of
American grain.
Giffen ridiculed the estimate. He said
that before £10,000,000 in bullion were
sent to America both the Bank of Eng
land and Bank of France would raise
their rates of discount and check the
drain.
According to Giffen, not bullion but
securities and exports will go to Amer
ica to pay for grain. Undoubtedly, he
said, there would be a heavy drain of
gold for several months to come, but
payments for grain were not the sole
cause of such drain. An important fac
tor in the financial position was the sil
ver question. Stable American houses,
he declared, are making preparations to
meet the silver crisis, which
is now inevitable, by making
gold purchases in Europe. When asked
if such a crisis is inevitable, he replied:
"In my opinion it is impossible to avert
it. The United States has become over
loaded with paper currency. The issue
of silver certificates to the amount of
£12,000,000 annually was a legislative
mistake, and is bound to bring a crash
speedily."
In response to a query as to how soon
the crash would come, he said: "Feb
ruary will realize the worst of the posi
tion. Ido not see how the grave trouble
can be averted by remedial legislation.
There is hardly time to avert it, even if
the parties in congress could agree upon
the means."
TRANSCONTINENTAL RATES.
The Western Tranic Association Makes
Several Decisions.
Chicago, Sept. 23.—The Commission
ers of the Western Traffic association
gave out a number of decisions today,
among them being one setting forth
that the Atchison and Southern Pacific
have acted in violation of the presidents'
agreement, in withdrawing the leather
traffic between California and Texas
from the jurisdiction of the Western
Traffic association, and that the rates
on such shipments should be at
once restored to the former basis.
Another decision authorizes the North
ern Pacific road to establish a rate of
80 cents per 100 pounds on material for
the construction of merchant marine
vessels, from Pittsburg to Tacoma, with
the understanding that if the rate is
found to be applied on other material,
or is likely to involve similar reduced
rates to other Pacific coast points, the
tariff thus authorized shall be with
drawn.
The I'rlester Verein.
Buffalo, Sept. 23.—Today's session
of the priester verein was occupied with
debates as to the methods of electing
their officers. It is understood that a
letter was received from Archbishop
Elder, of Cincinnati, favoring the use of
the German language to inculcate first
religious principles where German is
the common language of the family.

association was held. Tho association
was reported as having fifty-three branch
societies, located mainly in Illinois,
Wisconsin and lowa.

INTERCEDING FOR MRS. MAYBRICK
Prominent American Ladles Praying for
Her Pardon.
Bar HAjtnoß, Me., Sept. 23.—The case
of Mrs. Maybrick, accused of poisoning
her husband in England and sentenced
to penal servitude for life some time
ago, was brought to the attention of
Mrs. Blame, and she, together with the
secretary, have become deeply interested
in it. Mrs. Blame has been for many
months constantly in receipt of let
ters urging her to use her in
fluence with the secretary of state to
induce him to communicate with Lord
Salisbury. About two weeks ago a peti
tion for Mrs. Maybrick's pardon, signed
by Mrs. Harrison and the wives of mem
bers of the cabinet, was sent to Minister

Negotiations for St. Thomas.
New York, Sept. 23.—A Washington
special says: It is reported here that
the administration is considering the
advisability of making overtures for the
acquisition of the island of St. Thomas
as a naval station.
It is understood that the negotiations
have reached a point where the United
States has been given the refusal of the
island at about the same price offered in
1876, when President Johnson urged its
purchase. If this be true, President
Harrison will no doubt recommend in
his annual message to congress, next
December, a sufficient appropriation for
the purpose.
Russian Affalri.
St. Petersburg, Sept. 23.—The min

somewhat of a triumph over the third
party movement in this state.

FROM CHICAGO.
A Los Angeles Man at His Old East
ern Home.
Chicago, Sept. 21. 1891.
The prospect of being instrumental in
influencing some of these eastern peo
ple to become residents of California in
the near future alone induced me to
leave the Pacific coast and come to this
city for a few weeks of business activity.
I knew this climate too well to be found
coming here for pleasure. The journey
hither, over the admirably equipped
and managed Santa Fe route, was in
deed enjoyable. Riding in a comfort
able sleeping car the entire distance
fiom Los Angeles to Chicago, with no
changes, and reaching one's destination
in less than four days is a "picnic"
rather than a hardship, and the travel
ing public will certainly appreciate the
enterprise of the railroad company that
offers such excellent facilities for trans
continental journeyings. Chicago is not
the place to come for pleasure; certain
ly not now. Tbe weather is boiling hot,
night and day, and the thick, dark,
sooty atmosphere of this great
city intensifies the discomfort
of the enn's fierce rays.
It is as much as a Californian can do to
breathe the stuffy air at all, and he is
apt to feel like dropping whatever he
has on his hands and taking the first
train for the land where there is always
pure air and plenty of it. I have already
met several Angeienos who feel that way
and have so expressed themselves. But
I am not here for my health, but for
purely business purposes, and if tbe cli
matic conditions of Chicago do not get
me down I shall accomplish something
that will be felt in California in the way
of increased immigration of home-seek
ers to God's country.
Though I have been here less than a
week, and the torrid weather has par
tially paralyzed business effort, some
preliminary investigations convince me
that California stock is at a premium in
this market. The feeling to ward Califor
nia is exactly the reverse of what it was
two years ago when I was here. The
"effete east," I am told by those who
are in positions to know, was never so
deeply interested in California as now.
But I will be able to write more defi
nitely concerning this important matter
a little later on.
Chicago is a modern giant. Her
growth is something marvelous; her
sky-scraping buildings are almost iudri
crous; her river and slaughter houees
are odorous. She is a city of palaces
and hovels, of millionaires and paupers,
of grand boulevards and filthy alleys,
of spacious parks and reeking sloughs,
of reckless speculation and honest indus
try. She is everything—a little world—
little as to territory, compared to the
space outside, but immense in her in
terests, her activities, her population,
her enterprises and her prospects.

Mr. Snyder advocated the appoint
ment, which was opposed by Mayor

giving the power of an officer to a man
who he said had proven himself un
unworthy to wear a star, and had been
found guilty of abusing his office while
chief. The matter went over one week.
An application for a license from S.
F. Anseluio at 024 North Main street
was referred to the chief.
Henry Craemer was granted a trans
fer of the license of Gottlieb Werner, at
114(5 East First street.
The clerk reported the payment of a

place certain fire plugs on Boyle Heights
was referred to the chief.
A petition from A. G. Gardner to be

to another part thereof was denied.
The city attorney reported an amend
ment to the ordinance fixing the limit*
of fire district No. 1, to take in 185x150
feet on the northwest corner of Broad
way and First street. Some opposition
was expressed to the proposed ordinance
on the ground that such proceedings
would piece up the fire ordinance too
much, so that no one could tell just
what the fire limits are. It was deferred
for one week.
Tne National Fire Coupler com
pany, who are manufacturing a new
patent coupler which attaches with
a spring instead of a screw, offers to put
their couplers on all the hose and hy
drants in the city, and if after six

Duncan and VV. E. Hughes had a con
ference yesterday afternoon with the
city engineer and members of the coun
cil on sewer matters. The proposed
outfall was the question under consider
ation and the gentlemen were treated
to a lengthy explanation of the engi
neer's reasons for selecting the route
about which there has been so much
discussion. The conncilmen and engi
neer argue that this route is the best for
many reasons. First, it is said to be the
least expensive and the shortest, and in
the second place tbe claim is made that
people owning property along the pro
posed line are ready to take the sewage
tor irrigating purposes and will pay lib
erally for it.
It has been decided to invite the pro
prietors of the daily newspapers to take
a trip over the line on Tuesday next,
in company v* ith the city engineer and
councilmen. The following engineers
will also be invited: Fred Eaton, John
E. Jackson, Geo. Hansen, and J. P.
Culver.
