the absence of Mr. Evarts. Among
other things, Senator Sabin said :
. Much travel of late, severe bpsiness
duties and slight illness have made me
nearly a wreck-a wreck in all but my
hopes for a republican victory this fall.
Eighteen months ago it did not look so.
But when ever I go over the eountry, I
findlthe same spiritextant, and the same
belief that the great republican party is
again risen to supremacy. Not only are
states in the Northwest sending us good
reports, though the democrats have ex
pected defection there, but there are
prospects that we may carry Florida
North Carolina, Tennessee and West
Prospects in Virginia.
NEW YORii, April 10.--Gen. V. D.
Grover of Virginia, a warm personal
friend of Senator Mahone, in referring
to the political outlook in the "Old Do
minion" to-day sata that the candidates
and the platforms of the two great par
ties would have a great deal to do, so far
as the vote of Virginia is concerned, in
November. If.the democrats nominate
a free trade candidate at Chicago, backed
by a free trade platform, then he had no
doubt whatever that his state would go
republican.
"President Arthur," he said, "has
hosts of friends in Virginia, but the del
egation will not go to Chicago pledged
for him or any other man. Our dele
gates will go uninstructed. If it be
comes evident that Arthur is the man
who can win, the Virginians will stand
by him. Blaine's followers are many,
and very enthusiastic. It looks very
much as though there would be two
delegations, the liberals or coalitionists
and the straight-out republicans. The
tariff will overshadow all other issues in
this canvass, It is the only issue on
which the republicans can hope to win."
Fined for Contempt of Court.
ST. PAUL, April 11.-The case of the
deputy sheriffs of Custer county, Mon
tana, arrested at Brainerd last night,
was heard at St. Paul this morning.
James Conley was fined $100, Frank
Conley $560, and Smith was discharged.
Their fines were paid. Their prisoner,
Lucius Stephen Taylor, is held here un
der arrest by Sheriff Henry O'Gorman,
awaiting action on the writ of habeas
corpus. It may take ten days to settle
the question, as testimony will probably
have to be procured from :Texas. The
three Custer county deputies remain
here.

AtTooNA, Pa., April 14.--The repub

sional district met to-night and elected

at -the depot in this city, making the

an early train to Meriden, where they vis
were sent out of town by the authori- cis

He states that his brother Michael to a
Ohrmer, whose troubles with the Indi- tini
ans have been reported, is safe new, but J
trouble is anticipated as the Indians
have been reinforced by a large band ber
across the boundary under chief Little I
Shell. The Indians refuse to allow a mu
settler on that portion of their reserva- F
tion, which has just been thrown open
to settlers by the interior department. mol
The.Indians have not killed any one, A
but they destroy all machinery and kill .mei
the cattle belonging to the settlers. T
They are increasing in boldness every
day and trouble is feared, as the settlers the

San Francisco, April 14.-In the
Sharon divorce case to-day the deposi
tion of H. M. True, of Santa Cruz, wa
read. During the progress of the trial
Harry Wells, witness for plaintiff, testi
fled that Sharen had in his presence
introduced Miss Hill to True as "Mrs.
Sharon." True, who is. on his death
bed, deposed that Wells' testimony waE
a "put up job" between Miss Hill, Well
and himself. It was arranged that Miss
Hill should testify to that effect and
Sthat he and Wells would coi.flrm It.
-He became a party to thi arrangment,
believing he could make taoney out of it
but being on his death bed he wanted t
tell the whole truth befor.i it was to itbe.

following grand jurymen, for good and
sufficient reasons, were 'excused:. Jos.
Allen, A. C. Johnson, J.R. Wilton and

after receiving a lengthy `rtid excellent
charge from the court, that body retired
to their room. The judge then called

AFTERNOON SESSION.
During the afternoon several Motions
to quash summons, etc., were heard and
argued, but no cases were disposed of.
The trial jury - was d~ischarged at noon
until nine o'clock this morning.
An interesting point came up in the
consideration of the case of the Terri
tory vs. Richard Mee et al., which is a
,case brought against Mee and his bonds
men to recover $5,000 as bail, forfeited
at a former term of court. The attor
neys for Mee brought him into court
and asked release from the bond on con
dition that they pay all the costs of the
cause to this day. The point was ar
gued by McIntire for the defendants
and Col. Johnston for the territory.
Judge Wade took the matter under ad
visement and will probably give his de
cision this morning.

charge of cattle killing will have their
trial to-day. Several other cases are set
for to-day and the trial jury will prob
ably have some work to do.

me rits, as follows :. Patrick Harmon,
grand larceny; two.against Jacob Henry
for assault ,with intent to kill; ;Chas.
Bryer, assault with intent to kill; T.
W. Thompson, forgery; William Moore,
horse stealing. They were all without;
means to employ counsel, and the court
appointed counsel to defend them.
AFTERNOON SESSION.
The case of the Territory vs. Spaniard
and Cream or White Antelope, for kill
ing cattle, was called the first thing up
on the reassembling of the court. Col.
Donnelly defended the Indians, so far
as defense was needed. Two witnesses
were examined after which the prosecu
tion rested. Col. Donnelly, without in
troducing any rebutting evidence, moved
that the case be dismissed on the ground
that there was no evidence to sustain
the charge and for the further reason
that the court had no jurisdiction.
The court then instructed the jury
to return a verdict of not guilty, y
which was done through their fore
man, Peter Macdonald. .On motion
of the district attorney the cases
against Snake Chief and Big Young
Man, for a like offense, were noile proved.
The case of the Territory vs. William
Moore, grand larceny, was next taken
up, and a jury impanneled to try the a
cause. It was allege that in February
last Moore stole a horse of John Evans.
The defendPant clalmedthia& he had pur
cbased the animal.: RTie veadict of the
jury will be reeled thtmorning.
