St. Louis, November 11. —Advices from Indian Territory say a vigilance commit tee composed of 100 citizens of the Creek nation was recently formed for the pur pose of capturing or driving from the na tion a band of desperados who have loDg been operating in that section, making both lives and property nnsafe. For two weeks past the committee, ander the lead ership of Captain Serblanz and Wm. Enac, have been scouring the country and ar resting and delivering to the United States marshal some fifteen of the outlaws. Yesterday they surrounded the honse of Abe Carr, in which the notorions Barrett gang were concealed, and demanded their surrender. A reply came in the form of a volley from rifles. A battle ensued and Morse McIntosh, a prominent citizen of the Nation and a member of the commit tee, was killed, and one of the desperadoes was killed and two others wounded. Re inforcements were sent for, and at last ac counts 200 had started from Muskogee and other places for the scene of the fight. St. Louis, November 13. —The latest news from the Chickasaw Indian Nation was brought from Tishomingo to-day by James Harris, auditor of the Nation, to Gainesville, Tex., and is of a startling character. Harris said Governor Gny was not killed Satarday night, as reported yesterday. The would-be assassin's ballet failed to hit him. This attempt to take the Governor's life so aroused his friends that over 300 of them, heavily armed, gathered at Tishomingo yesterday to pro tect him, and Byrd with 200 well armed men also gathered and went into camp. Auditor Harris and a few other Indians were at Gainesville preparing for an affray which they say will come off tonight, Gay having ordered his men to surround the Byrd party and exterminate them unless they surrendered without resistance. These Indians left this noon for Tisho mingo to join Guy's forces, who they say, will number 700. The citizens have es poused Gays cause against the Byrd party. Unless the U S. Government interferes it will be a war of extermination. New Jerve? Congressmen. Trenton, N. J., November 7.—The Con gressional delegation of New Jersey is as follows : 1st district—C. R.

General As Indianapolis, November 12.—A great number of the Knights of Labor delegates to the General Assembly are arriving in the city to attend the session which begins tomorrow. A lively time is expected, as it is thought the opposition to General Mas ter Workman Powderly will develop strongly. Owing to the distance, many of the district assemblies will not be here. In fact it has never been possible to have a really full attendance at any one of these annual meetings. This year the attend ance of from one hundred and fifty to two hundred is all that is looked for, but that number may be enough to make matters lively. Indianapjlis, November 13.—About the hotel corridors this morning delegates to the twelfth generel assembly of the Knights of Labor were busily engaged dis cussing matters of interest and importance to the order. Conspicnons in the lobby of the Grand hotel was Thomas B. Barry, of Michigan, leader of the fight against Pow derly. He talked freely, accnsing the present members of the board of extrava gance, mismanagement, employment of persons cot members of the order and of other things. W. T. Lewis, of Pittsburg, is abont the only person spoken np as an opponent of Powderly for chief place, and his opposi tion may not materialize to any great ex tent. It was quarter past ten when Pow derly rapped for order. The morning ses sion will consider the report of the com mittee on credentials aDd any trouble that is liable to arise from contestants will de velop at this time. Indianapolis, November 13—The case of T. B. Barry is ;one of appeal from au thority of Powderly. and it will be con sidered in due time by the committee. Barry expresses confidence in its ultimate success. It is said by some of those close to him that Barry contempletes the organ ization of a new order if he fails this time, and his actions are watched with consider able interest. Other protest cases ni-t here mentioned were then brought np after much discussion, the delegates being seat ed in each case. The afternoon session to-day was de voted to the completion of the organiza tion of this general assembly by the ap pointment of committees. These are the legislative committee, committees on laws, on finance, on the state of the order and on secret work, on appeals and grievances and the press committee. There was no discussion over these ap pointments, but some debate was aroused when the legislative committee was under consideration, it being thought by some not advisable to form such a committee at this time. It is the duty of this commit tee to consider the legislation which it is desired to have brought before Congress and it is intended for it to act in an ad visory capacity with the regular standing committee at Washington. A telegram was received from the chief officer of the Brotherhood of Locomotive Firemen, ex pressing the good will and hope for the success of and promising cooperation with it. A similar message was received from the Trades Assembly of Indianapolis. The reports of the general officers and commit tees of the general executive board will be heard to-morrow and Thnrday. re SPANISH POLITICS. Great Excitement at Madrid. Madrid, November 11. —In anticipation of the arrival of Senor Canovas Del Cas tello from Saville, a strong force of police and military was posted this morning along the streets through which the Con servative leader was to pass on his way from the station to his residence. Thou sands of Republicans collected at the sta tion early, and the arrival of Canovas was the signal for a hostile ontbaret. The mob sarroanded and followed his carriage, booting and throwing stones, and the win dows of the carriage were smashed by flying missiles. His wife was strack with a stone, bnt was not seriously injured. When the carriage reached the Prado, the Gen d'armes surrounded it in order to protect occupants from the violence.Similar scenes of disorder occurred outside of the residence of the Cahovas.

Washington, November 12.— The Gov ernor of Alaska, A. H. Wineford, in his annual report to the Secretary of the In terior, states that while the population has greatly increased, estimates that there are 30,000 natives. The total population is 49,850; and of this number there are 6,500 whites, 19,600 creoles, and 2,905 Aleuts. In regard to the settlement of public lands the Governor states that all the settlers in Alaska on public lands are mere squatters who are awaiting the legislation of Con gress which will enable them to secure titles. The only obstacle in the way of agriculture is that the lands are not avail able for settlement. He says climate is favorable and the soil rich. He sees no reason why Alaska may not ultimately rival Montana and Wyoming as cattle countries. The stamp mill on Doublegrass island, he states is the largest in the world. He has estimated that the output is $150,000 in gold per month. Other gold mines are being developed in the same island and report notes the sale of four claims for $150,000. Silver discoveries have been made. Heavy Lawyer's Fees. New York, November 12.—In the pros ecution of the soit against Henry Hilton for alleged irregularities in connection with the estate of A. T.

London, November 6. —The papers in the Sackvilie case were made public this evening. The first is a letter from Lord Salesbury to Lord Sackyille, dated October 27. It is as follows: "Mr. Phelps stay ing at my honse informs me that Mr. Bayard's request for your iecall is not based npon the letter to March ison batnpon a newspaper interview. I rpolied that I was glad it was net true that the re quest was dneto the writing of a letter which was made public only by the be trayal of confidence and it was hardly practicable to lay down a principle that a diplomatic representative should be pro hibited from expressing even privately an opinion npon events passing in the coun try to which he is accredited. The lan guage of an interview is different toe. You must have been mistaken in having intended it for publication. Bcfoie admit ting the Deed for a recall I was bound in justice to yon to know exactly what objectionable language was used. I therefore asked Mr. Phelj s for a copy of the interview so as to ascertain from you whether yon had been accurately re ported. I told him I would then bring the matter before my colleagues. Phelps replied that he had not received the text of the interview, but would take steps to procure it It was consequently understood that, nntil a copy was received, there should be no answer to the reqne3t for your recall." On October 28 Lord Sackvilie sent the following communition to Lord Salisbuiy : "The letter was a political Repnblican plot. I have mailed an explanation. The plot was due to the approaching election. If my recall is demanded, I I eg to express deep regret at what has occu- .ed " On the 30th Lord Sackviue called and received his passport. On the 31st Mr. Phelps informed Lord Salisbury that the United States government had given Lord Sackvilie hi* passport, and added that President Cleveland had hoped another minister wonld be sent to Washington on the same day. Lord Sackvilie sent the follow ing dispatch to Lord Salisbury: "I beg to repudiate Mr. Bayard's statement of the reasons for my dismissal as an unjust attach on my integrity." Lord Salisbury at once sent the following reply: "Place Mr. Herbert as senior secre tary on the spot in charge of the legation. On November 1st Lord Salisbury sent a communication to Phelps referring to his promise to furnish him with a copy of Sackville's interview, and informs him as he had no further information as to what Lord Sackville's statements contained or to whom they were made, he was nnable to form any judgment on the considerations which dictated the request for his recall or the forwarding of his passport." To this the next day Mr. Phelps made reply as follows : "Oar recollection of what passed in the conversation we had on Sh tu relay differs slightly in one particular, it was not in tended that the letter should have any part in the reasons for the ieqnest for the recall of Lord Sackvilie. I did say that the minister's remarks in the published in terview was the principal reason. I am still without a copy of the interview. I have sent to Mr. Bayard a copy of your lordship's note requesting fall details of langnage and circumstances." The letter written by Lord Sackvilie on October 26th was received by Lord Salis bury on the 4th inst. It enclosed the Murchison letter and his reply to it. He says: "I have certain information that the Muchsion letter was concocted by a firm in connection with the Republican com mittee in New York. It was sent from southern California to prevent sus picion. Mr. Bayard, whom I saw to-day, said he regretted the incident very mach. He accepted my disclaimer of any thought or intention to interfere with the domestic policy of the country. He said it was a campaign trap, but he frankly told me I had been indiscreet. I expressed my re regrels and Mr. Bayard assured me he bore no ill will. Swindler Arrested. Bridgeport, Conn., November 11.— Miles A. French and wife were arrested at the depot in this city last night by detec tives as they were about taking the train for Boston. French had been employed for the pa9t three years by the Bridgeport Copper Company, his business beiDg to ex tract the silver from copper ore. For some time past he has been carrying on a system of stealing the Bilver obtained. The com pany had no means of knowing the exact amount of silver taken from each ton of ore, and they trnsted to his honesty When a ton ot ore wonld exceed the aver age he wonld appropriate the excess to his own use. He soon began to spend money freely and lived far beyond his salary, which caused the firm to investigate the matter. This resulted in his arrest. He or bis wife, or both, made frequent trips to Boston, Providence and New York, where they met agents and disposed of their plun der. When arrested last night they had about $1,200 worth of silver in bare. It is thought that French has stolen from $10, 000 to $15,000 in this manner. Died.

One of the leading Democrats in the state created a sensation by sayi dk: "I for one am getting tired of being used as a cat's paw to rake chestnnts ont of the fire for Northern politicians of the New York and Hewitt, Hill and Grant stripe. For twenty years or more the peo ple have been nsing us to serve their sel fish ends. The solid south has been used as a cat's paw by them, and the solid south is a solidified fool if it does not kick over the traces. What wonld Ido? Why, I'd do this : I would have a convention of the Southern States Let the convention meet and disenss the situa tion. Let ns say to the Republican national committee, "We are tired of this thing and want to break through the traces. Give ns yonr assurance that yon will leave ns alone to manage oar State affairs, and that yon will give us decent federal officials in the South, and we will break np the solid Sonth ; we will cat loose from Tammany aDd the Connty Democracy and all the rest of it and vote for the best man for President, whether he be Repnblican or Democrat. OUR military force. Report of Adjutant General Drum. Washington, November 9.—In his an nual report to the Secretary of War Ad j utant General Dram says : The regularly organized and uniformed active militia of the several States, which, in 1885, ag gregated 84,739, reached 92,734 in 1886, in creased to 100,837 in the following year, and on July 6th, 188S represented an avail able force of 106,919 men. Officers will be increased so as to rauge between 25 and 50 according to Tank. General Drum speaks in terms of high praise of the per sonnel of the militia organizations in spected by army officers this y tar. The equipment in general is very good, although t b e arm s are d ot of unifo rm pat tern—a serious detect which, it is confidentially expected, will be remedied in the near future. Con sequent on the largely increased appropria tions of congress, the Adjutant General makes many valuable suggestions regard ing the instrnction of the militia. The re port recommends a reduction of the term of service in the army from five to three years, which will operate to discourage desertion. Championship Wrestling Match.

It took Ross five minutes to win the fourth catch-as-catch can fall, and six minutes to win the final fall, side hold in harness, and thereby the match, the style of wrestling being evi dently as much in his favor as catch-as catch-can.

London, November 9.— The usual ban quet to the cabinet ministers was given at Gmld Hall this evening. Lord Salisbury delivered a long speech. He denied that the government had yielded to their oppo nents on the question of policy. England had perhaps noticed that popular institu tions existed to the westward. [Laughter.! Even this, in America, wonld add more to the history of electioneering than to the history of politics. [Laughter and cheers.] If there was any complaint against Wash ington statesmen, it did not involve the two nations. [Cheers.] Washington statesmen had not, apparently, commended themselves to the approval of Americans in regard to the peace of Europe. It ap peared that all the raiera had an earnest and intense desire to maintain peace. Chamberlain-Endicott.
