I most cordially indorse tbe plan adopted by tbe committee and am oonfident it will reault in the collection of a large fund for tbe circulation of bimetalho literature.

People Familiar With the Indians Doubt Their Good Intentions. WALKER, Minn., Oct. 19.—The Pil lager hostiles held their council at Bear island during the day, and, according to their promise, decided to surrender the men wanted by Marshal O'Connor. On the face of things this settles the whole trouble and the Pillager war is at an end. The Indians have been assured, officially, that if they will recognize the power of the civil courts the affair at Sugar point will he forgotten. This proposition has been accepted by the In dians and that should end the matter. But in spite of the unanimous deter mination of the council, in spite of the assurances of the hostiles and the pro testations of the agency Indians, tliel* is still an undercurrent of anxiety. Thif is mostly manifest among the army of ficers, though the sentiment is shared by many people who have had dealings with the Indians and are familiar with their methods. There is nothing tangi ble upon which to found a belief that there will be further trouble, but it un doubtedly exists. NO MORE FIGHTING.
