Robeson Wants $2,000,000 for
Iron Docks.
Eemarkable Ignoring of an
Important Postal
Another Talk with Kiowas, Comanches,
and Apaches.
Once More They Promise.
Special Despatch to The Chicago Tribune ,
Washington, Oct. 22.— Secretary Robeson will
persist in a furtlierrecommendation to Congress
during the coming session for an appropriation
to construct an iron floating dock for ike repair
of naval vessels. It will be remembered this re
commendation was made last year, and that
Congress voted $1,000,000 to construct the im
provement, and that in accordance with the pro
visions of the act making tho appropriation, a
commission was appointed to prepare plans and
invite proposals in the construction of the dock.
The plans were all agreed on, but it was found
that the appropriation would not begin to
cover the lowest bid made. During
the summer the price of iron was constantly ad
vanced, and in order to carry out his pet scheme
and have money enough to make all the necessa
ry experiments, the Secretary will put in a de
mand for $2,000,000, in his forthcoming annual
Secretary Boutwell, in conversation to-day,
said that he has never had any idea of reissuing
tho $44,000,000 of reserve greenbacks, and has
no such idea at the present time. He said he re
garded that reserve as intended for
any nnforaeen emergency that might arise, but
that in his opinion no such emergency has ever
risen, is not now at hand, nor docs he perceive
any indications of such a crisis in the future.
He says if any delegations from Northern or
Western cities come to Washington to urge the
scheme or protest against it, he will give them a
patient hearing and determine what course to
pursue. The original report concerning the
secretary’s intention had no foundation in fact.
Washington will not suffer, during the ap
proaching winter, as she did during the last, on
account of inadequate hotel accommodations.
The old Willard Hotel, which has been closed so
long, has been entirely refitted, painted, and re
furnished throughout, and will soon be open un
der a new proprietor, who has along lease of it.
The Ebbett House has been enlarged and im
proved. and the Arlington refurnished and
painted. The Kirkwood will again be open, and
the National and Metropolitan have both been
put in repair.
One of the recent decisions of the Post Office
Department is as follows:
Postmasters should treat as unpaid all matter mailed
at their ofilce bearing the frank of a person who noto
riously has not been in the vicinity for several days.
Although this rule is held out as a means of
deceiving persons, over ten millions of letters,
documents, speeches, etc.; have been sent out
of this city by the Administration Committees,
franked by persons most of whom have not
been in this city since Congress adjourned.
The annual report of the Second Auditor is
nearly ready to be transmitted to the Secretary
of the Treasury. The number of accounts ex
amined and disposed of during the year was
51,607, involving an expenditure of $141,266,-
686.60. Of these, 1,870 were for Indian accounts
and claims, and 47 pertained to the Soldiers’
Home and National Asylum for Disabled Volun
teer Soldiers. Requisitions were issued for
$23,219,513.14, of which $18,336,329.12 were
to pay claims, chiefly Indian; $19,046,420
in favor of disbursing officers; $17,257.92 to
pay claims under special act of relief by Con
gress ; $431,302 in payment for internal reve
nue to the United States Treasurer; $418,324.19
in payment to National Volunteer Asylum, and
$396,863.83 in payments to the Soldiers’
Homo. The accounts of 143 Paymasters
were finally settled under the acts of
March 16, 1868, and Juno SO, 1870.
The accounts of seventy-five Paymasters were
adjusted without recourse to the acts referred
to. On these there is due the United States
$667,031.35, including $463,712.79. the amount
of J. H. Hodges’ defalcation. Suits have been
entered against five Paymasters and two Super
intendents of Indian Affairs, whose indebted
ness amounts to $68,649.71.
The investigation of fraudulent bounty claims
resulted in the recovery of $20,368.33. Thenum
ber of cases involving forgery, fraud, unlawful
withholding of money, over-payments, etc.,
now undergoing examination is $4,386. There
is no remedy for swindling attorneys except to
debar them from further practice in the prosecu
tion of claims.

- Commissioner of Indian Affairs General
Walker had a talk with the Kiowa, Comanche,
and Apache delegation of Indians to-day at
the Department of the Interior. General
Walker indulged in very plain talk,
in accordance with the views of
of the Administration as recently expressed by
the President and members of the Cabinet.
After the regular business of the session had
been concluded, the ultimatum of the Govern
ment was stated to these Indian representatives
substantially as follows:
The Government has ceased to accept mere
professions of friendship and good faith, and
now requires evidence of their honest purpose.
The terms dictated were ;
First. The Kiowas and Comanches hero repre
sented must, before the 15th of December
next, camp every chief, head-man, brave,
and family complete, within ten miles
of Fort Sill and agency. They must
remain there until spring without giving
any trouble, and shall not then leave unless
with the consent of their Agent.. They shall be
fore that date give up to tbeir Agent all animals
they have stolen from the Government, or any
person in their neighborhood, military authori
ties agents, and traders, and when they cannot
returntho same stolen animals, they must make
restitution from their own stock.
All these things the representatives of the In
dians promised to do.
General Walker informed them that the Gov
ernment does not propose to treat with those
portions of tribal bands who have declined
to bend representatives to YfashiftgtQijj
and they would soon hear that the United
States troops have been directed to operate
against them. Every man belonging to any
tribal band not at the place named by the 15th of
December is to ho considered an enemy of tho
Government, and as having chosen to remain
hostile. Such persons are to receive no further
benefit from the Government, Tho-troops would
hit them wherever they were found. Tho Com
missioner assured those who complied with the
requirements of the Government that they
should be provided for.
The Indians, remaining silent, were asked
whether they bad anything to say, when one of
them, after a short conference with his fellow
chiefs, said: “ We came in to do what our Great
Father wants us to do. We told you what our
council did. If we did not Intend to do well, we
would not have come here from the plains.”
Several Indiana said they would do all in their
power to induce stragglers to come to the meet

Alarming Spread of the Small-
A Panic in the City—The Mer
chants Scared About the
Fan Trade.
How the Papers have Agreed to Sup
press the Fads.
Special Despatch to The Chicago Tribune .
Bt. Louis, Oct. 22.—Understanding the
rivalry between St. Louis and ‘Chicago, your
readers can easily believe how intense a sensa
tion was caused here to-day by an an article, in
the on the small-pox. For several
weeks past a regular and rapid increase in small
pox cases has been noticeable, rather from the
frequency of small-pox tickets on the doors
than from any other reason, as
the press kept very quiet. The Dcinocrat's
article gave particulars collated from the pub
lished returns of the Board of Health, which
showed a steady and alarming increase in the
cases reported, from 31 for the first week in
September to 201 for the third week in October.
For the last two weeks, those ending Oct. 12 and
19, the mortality was 17 and 19 respectively,
though the reports were fixed oy clas
sifying them under the head of vario
loid, etc. In seven weeks the cases
were 737, and the average of deaths was 30 per
cent. In addition to this there were many cases
not reported by the doctors, and so negligently
were things conducted, that one woman died
without medical attendance, and her neighbors
never knew the cause of death till her daughter
went out to seek help to shroud and bury her
The district most infected is mostly occupied
by tenement houses and negro lodgings, dirty
and closely populated, bounded by Twelfth
street, the river, O’Fallon street, and the arsen
al, a space of about six square miles. There are
many other sporadic cases; it is impossible to
say how many, as tho doctors conceal tho cases.
As soon as the article had appeared the mer
chants, fearful of their fall trade being
diverted to Chicago, set to work and
raised lists, pledging that they would not adver
tise or subscribe to the Democrat . On Fourth
street they obtained 132 signatures; another on
Third street 60. In view of this, the Democrat's
chief proprietor, Fishback 7 weakened, and stop
ped publication, as he said “ For policy, so as
not to hurt the falltradeof the city. Meanwhile,
the Democrat reporters had interviewed Mayor
Josephßrownandthe Board of Health. On asking
the Secretary for small-pox rotnms for Monday
and Wednesday, Dr. O’Brien declined giving
them without an order from the Board. A re
porter, with a stenographic writer, .then de
manded access to the docks as citizens and tax
payers, and were informed that the Board de
clared the small-pox reports private, and
their publication inexpedient at present, as
tending to cause a public panic, and in
terfere with public trade. He said
further that Health Officers were working day
and night to overcome tho disease, and he hoped
to do so without notice in public press. They
had just inoculated two heifers, and so hope!
to secure a supply of pure vaccine. On going .to
Mayor Brown, he acknowledged the right of tue
citizens to inspect the hooks of the Department;
hut said this was the first time ho
had ever been asked to, show them,
and declined, as such information
was for the purpose of publication. After con
siderable bluffing he said, and this is the rer&a
iim report: “I do not disguise the fact that this
may be a terrible visitation. I am prepared to
take the responsibility when the timo comes, of
declaring the disease epidemic, and when that
timo comes no consideration as to the effect up
on tho fall trade oi;the business interests of the
city will have any weight. In view of the prac
tical confiscation of property, and the forcible
removal of persona which this might
necessitate, it Is serious, but human life is
precious.” Mayor Brown then went on to say
that the City Council not being in session no ap
propriations for health purposes were available,
but ho would raise money on his personal re
sponsibility.. He had telegraphed East for vac
cine to several cities, so had several city physi
cians. hut they could get little, and that of an
inferior quality. The most alarming stories
were afloat all day. Gay street, between Frank
lin avenue and Morgan, is about to be fenced
across at Fourteenth street.
. The public schools, it is reported, will be
closed, and a meeting of Directors is called for
Thursday night to discuss the situation. The
local papers have agreed to telegraph to the
large cities the utter groundlessness of the re
ports, and pay cost of such despatches.
The last case reported at 11 to-night is at No.
822 Market street, where a woman at Quincy
telegraphed here to her husband to ask his dis
ease, adding, “If small-pox I don’t come.” The
messenger found the quarantine wagon at the
door. The name is Elizabeth Stover.
The negro population is especially
alarmed. Reports from sixteen doctors say tho
increase in vaccination to-day is more than
quadruple. Just before the fair a similar item
appeared in a city paper, but it was summarily
stopped, as the fair ground was so near the in
fected district and might affect the gate re
Sx. Louis, Oct. 22.—A committee of promi
nent merchants and business men,

pointed to make the necessary arrangements for

St, Louis m the third Monday of November,

its members.
Cattle Claims on tUc Texas Frontier*
BaowNviLiiE, Tox., Oct. 22.—Major Thos. M.
Anderson, Sixteenth Infantry, arrived her© this
morning, from San Antonio. He has been
detailed by the War Department to in
vestigate certain claims presented by
tho Mexicans residing in this State
before the joint Mexican Commission in Wash
ington, for cattle alleged to have been taken by
tho United States troops about the close of the
rebellion. These claims amount to a large sum,
and are supposed to be greatly exagger
ated, as the number of cattle lor
which compensation is asked exceeds all the ani
mals, of every class, upon which claimants paid
taxes. Major Anderson is a fine lawyer, and has
had considerable experience on this frontier.
The case will receive a thorough investigation.

Frauds —Financial and
Special Despatch to The Chicago Tribune «
New Yobk, Oct. 22.— The arbitrary arrest of
Hr. Heinrich, in hia own honae, by a United
States Election Supervisor, and the studied
malice with which he was treated for forty-eight
hours, because he is a Greeley man, has aroused
hot and wrathful denunciations from the entire
anti-Administration press. A veteran United
States Commissioner in this city says Davenport
is the first man who ever sent a Federal war
rant from a hotel or from any place
outside of Court. The thing had never
been heard of before in the United States
Courts. The World shows that all such out
rages as those upon Hr. Heinrich are palpable
violations of the Fourth Amendment to the Con
stitution of the United States, which asserts
** The right of the people to be secure in their
persons, house, papers, and effects against un
reasonable searches,” and forbids any such
searches to be made without a formal legal war
rant. It is not pretended that Davenport’s spy
had any warrant of any kind beyond a
mere verbal order from Davenport. This gross
outrage is not only forbidden by the Constitu
tion, but explicitly forbidden by an act of Con
gress not yet five months old. If Hr. Heinrich
does not make Davenport smart in damages he
will fail to do his duty as a citizen.
The Tribune says: “This is what comes of
giving unlimited power for oppression into the
hands of weak or oad men. So far as the facts
appear in Heinrich’s case, this is the sheerest
and most capricious tyranny.
The Herald remarks that Commissioner Da
venport “is at present combining two charac
acters, that of magistrate and political agent in
the interest of a party.”
The .Express says “Hr. Davenport will soon
learn that the arrest of a Gennan-American
citizen in this way, and his propared-for incar
ceration over the Sabbath in jail with a refusal
of bail for a bailable offence until frightened in
to it by Heinrich’s counsel, is as foolish and
silly as it is lawless for Davenport.
This shows to Germans what sort
of a Kaiser Grant and his minions will be if we
keep them in' power, or fail to hold the great
State of Now York to check them. Davenport is
not a Bismarck, and this is not Prussia.
hohe police core option.
The Herald has an astounding story of a
league between the keepers of bagnios and the
police of this city. It states that almost all the
houses of ill-fame in the upper part of town
have telegraph connection, and all telegraph
offices have policemen detailed from the Metro
politan Department for duty. Three weeks
ago a young lady was decoyed from Boston, and
after searching for her in vain through the
medium of friends, her mother and. sister ar
rived in New York on the 16th inst. They
traced the unfortunate girl to a bagnio on West
Thirty-first street. Her sister, last Friday,
went to the place in a carriage, and, obtaining
admission, asked to see her. The procuress
ordered her out, and, on her refusal to leave,
summoned a messenger of the Tele
graph Company, who fetched Police
man Bowland to the house. He instantly
took sides with the procuress, ordered the
lady out of the house, and emphatically told her
she should not have her sister. The visitor
doubted his being an officer, and he pulled back
his coat and showed her his shield. The lady
then aeked for his protection. “ Til protect you
by putting you out.” He further saia: “Come!
you have no business here.” The lady remon
strated, and told him she would not leave until
her sister went with her. One of the wretched
inmates of the place, sympathising with the
woman, whispered in her ear; “ Hall bedroom,
second floor back.” She made for the
door, dashed it open, and her
sister was standing in the middle of
room weeping bitterly. Both sisters then
walked down into the hall, and left the house
unmolested. When they were going away from
the house the policeman was closeted with the
ogress in the front parlor of the den. The girl’s
story is that she first met the procuress while
walking in the street in Boston, and was seduced
by her brilliant promises to come to Now York
with her. The two policemen detailed at the
telegraph station have been ordered back to
post duty, and the public is wondering if this is
all tho punishment Bowland is to receive.
There was a sudden change in the monetary
situation to-day. Money was more active and
dearer than for some days past. The locking i
np of gold to make cash gold scarce and dear 1
absorbed currency, while the shifting of stocks
from strong to weak hands yesterday and to
day, also had a tendency to produce greater ac
tivity in money. During the afternoon the rates I
on call advanced from 5 per cent currency to 7 1
per cent gold, and a large business was done at <
7 per cent. There were some exceptions at 1-32
per diem. Just previous to the close, the supply
of money on the street increased, and call
loans declined from 7to 4 per cent. Prime
business rates are quoted at 9to 12 per cent.
The legitimate trade demand for money is very
large this season, and while money here is easy
on coll, it is active on time loans, and mercantile
paper, is still high. If speculators who
control say ten or fifteen million dol- i
lara remain on the bnll side of
stocks, there probably will be no difficulty in the
money market, as they hold the balance of
power and have since early antumn, and can ■
make call money eicbcr 4 per cent per annum or
%of 1 per cent per day. The indications now
are that they will remain on the bnll side, par
ticularly as the Treasury has developed a policy
in favor of their present position. Railroad
earnings will he very large at least until the im
mense crops of this season are marketed.
On the other hand there is a very unsatisfac
tory condition of affairs in European money
circles, which may take such a turn as to un
favorably affect us here. London advices
report money active at [email protected]% per cent, the.
Dank of England rate remaining 6 percent..
Private despatches from Paris say that negoti
ations are pending between the Bank of Fiance
and the Bank of England for the trans-;
fer from the former to the latter*
of 100,000,000 francs, as reported here Satur
day, and that nothing has been decided as yet.
It is clear that such a loss of coin by the Bank of
France would advance the premium on gold in>
Paris, which is now small, for the reason that
the very largo amount of gold in the Bank of
Franco is a constant menace to speculation for a.
higher premium.
The 6old Boom was treated to a slight sensa
tion to-day in the shape of a “ squeeze ” in cash
gold, which was made worth as high as % par
cent per diem for borrowing. There was con
siderable gossip afloat in regard to the manipu
lations and objects of this movement. One of
the Canadian banks was generally accredited l
with making tho movement, and in exchange,
circles the object was thought to he a depres
sion of foreign exchange for the
purpose of buying bills. There.
were some, however, who believed that the*
movement was started for the purpose of in
ducing the Bank of England to raise its rate of
discount to-morrow, which low exchange here
might effect. Foreign exchanges were only
slightly affected by the manipulation, and there
was no pressure to sell hills. Bankers did not
lower their asking rates. The market was dull
throughout, and closed somewhat nominal at
-103% for sixty days, and 110% for sight.
There was a marked change in the temper of
speculation on the Stock Exchange to-day,
when the activity and buoyancy of days past
gave way to depression and lower prices. The
rampant market of tho last few days offered in

Special Despatch to The Chicago Tribune,
New York, Oct. 22.—The Municipal Reform
Association of Philadelphia, composed of the
oldest and wealthiest citizens, which was formed
to fight the rotten but all-powerful political Ring
in that city, now claim to have sufficient evidence
to set aside the election of the Hartranft candi
dates, notwithstanding they figured up a major
ity of 15,000 in the Fifteenth Ward. Four of
the election officers have certified that
- vote of • the ward was al
so as to increase Hartranffc’s majority by
i the Fourteenth Ward. Hartranft’s ma
il _ _aa altered from 529 to 729. In the Thir
teenth Ward Hartranft had 300 • majority, but as
this ward, unlike the Fourteenth and fifteenth,
had no Municipal Reformers to look after the
manipulators, they made Hartranft’s majority
1,300, by prefixing the figure 1 to
the 300. In the Nineteenth Ward, which is
called “The Bing’s Own,” the majority was
993 before it was manipulated. After that it
was 2,993. The First Ward added 1,000 to the
legimate majority, and the Twenty-sixth did the
same, all of which will duly appear when the Mu
nicipal Reformers get the evidence before the
public. These wards are all Republican, but in
some democratic wards the majorities have fall
en off very mysteriously. The Fourth, for in
stance, a year ago gave 1,800 majority, and two
weeks ago gave hut 800 majority for Buckalew.

pose to elect Havemeyer, even if they are com
pelled to buy up O’Brien’s own supporters.

but Murphy claims he was overruled by his fel
low managers and the Time*, newspaper. It is
