compahgre chiefs The Indians have
H been here awaiting their coming for
4 nearly two weeks The secretary there
fore promptly arranged to expedite
their presentation and set 4 oclock
tis afternoon for their first hearsay
The formal presentation of the chiefs
occurred at that hour
They all reared in the secretarys
r ice wearing citizens clothes and
making a
They are as good looking a body of
Indians as have been introduced to any
cretary in many years The prlnci
I al chief Chavaneaux was esi < daily
noticed as he pascd through the
marble corridors of the great interior
department building He has a strong
ly marked face and sturdv figure that
occasioned many admiring comments
On arriving in the secretarys room
A the Indians took seats on the richly
upholstered divans of the secretarys
row They were aecompanidjjy Al l
lotment Commissioner Jeffreys Cap
tain W H Beck the Indian agent at
the reservation Subagent Gogarty
and the interpreter Alhandra Mc
Andrews was absent
Th secretary received the chiefs
cordially each being introduced in
turn h iy Captain Beck The statute
providing for the
was read translated and its meaning
explained Tlie secretary told Chav
neaix and his associate chiefs that he
was glad they had come on to Wash
ington to talk over the matter of tIlt
I allotments He assured them that
while he represented the authority of
the government and must enforre the
laws he was also the representative of
the Indians and should take care to see
that their interests were fully and
adequately protected
Only two of the chiefs spoke Chava
neaux ard Coorow each expressing
the pleasure it had given them to como I
to the capital to talk the matter over
with the heads of the government and
confidence that all matters of differ
ence would be disposed of as a result
of the visit The secretary then ar
0 ranged with the Indians for a full and
at 4 oclock tomurrow and the inter
view came to a close
It is believed that the Indians will
carry back to the reservation an
unanimously favorable report The
only chief whose course seems to be
at all in doubt is Colorow who is to
some extent influenced and controlled
by Red Moon
Atichee who was reported to be op
posed to allotment appears to have
been favorably impressed by what he
has seen and heard while here and is
likely to favor the allotment
Chavaneaux and McCook will act
together ad are known to be
favorable to accenting the sit
uation and allowing the allotment to
proceed without further opposition
Vyasket the war chief of the Un
compahgres who is a brother of Chief
Chavaneaux has sent a telegram to
Commissioner Guffy at Fort Duchesne
relative to the troubles in the reser
vation The commislsoner has for
warded the information in the following
dispatch to Captain Beck
Wyasket has telegraphed me to
say to you and those with you that the
Uncompahgres are not concerned in
recent troubles and have no feeling
The chiefs will eave for home Satur
day night On the return trip Captain
Beck will stop a short time at Denver

Lilly Park Colo via Vernal Utah
Nov 4Thompsons ranch is at last
reached after six days riding in mud I
and slush His haystacks and barns II
were burned as reported in dispatches
but from all that could be learned by
1 examination of the ground around the
place it is not believed that the In
dians had any hand in the affair There
has been no snow or rain to obliterate
tracks and other places where Indians
were known to have been Their tracks
fE were plainly visible but no signs could
be found around Thompsons of the
L visitation of Indians Mr Thompson
himself said that he in no wise blamed
the Indians for his loss that it was a
white man in his opinion who took
advantage the Indian scare to do a
malf ious act He is so fully convinced
of this that he intends having the man
arrested as a firebug I I
When Vaughns ranch was passed by
the command all the settlers of Lilly
park and the surrounding country were
gathered there but since the arrival of
Captain Wrisrht and his soldiers they
have all returned to their homes If
I the sending of regulars to Lilly park I
had no other effect it restored confi
dence to the people thereby thoroughly
I j scouring the country and ascertaining
that no Indians remained The troops
j have been scouting the country for two
days and find no recent indication of
I I Indians and Mr Vest the minister
from Ouray agency has just arrived I
and reports that all the Indians are on
the reservation After looking over the
country and hearing Captain Wrights
report he returns to Duchesne fully
convinced that the trouble is entirely
over in Colorado
Your correspondent visited the In
dian camp where the recent slaughter
of unarmed and defenseless Indians oc
curred The rround was marked by
three separate stains of blood marking
the place where the Indians had fallen
after the terrible onslaught of the j
game wardens From the number of
lodge poles there were about eight I
tepees in this camp and the scene of
confusion which met the eye showed
only too plainly of the hurried manner
in which the survivors left the country
Buckskins moccasins saddles camp
equipment etc had been abandoned in
their flight
Captain Wright starts on the home
ward trip tomorrow satisfied that there
is no further danger to the settlers
The whole trouble amounts to this
Game wardens murdered two Indian
bucks and wounded two squaws a
white man burned another white mans
hay and barns

A Big Sensation Did Not Disturb
New York Nov 4A member of the
Union Pacific syndicate speaking to
day of the arrangements for depositing
in banks the 858000000 which is to be
paid the government for the release of
its lien uoon the Union Pacific said
The transactions will be carried out
without a ripple in the financial condi
tion of the market The money will be
deposited in eight or nine banks and
more if they care to qualify as such I
depository One bank is ready with
bonds to take 15000000 of the money
and it can arrange to take 30000000 if I
necessary I do not think anv of thi
money will be deposited in Chicago
banks for the reason that the money
is in New York and Chicago does not
want it now any more than the New
York banks do Some little of course
may be deposited In Chicago and one
or two other cities perhaps if there
are any payments to be made on that
account in those cities It should not
I be forgotten that virtually what ever I
money is to be deposited this month is
already here in banks and trust com I I
panies on account of the reorganiza I
tion committee and the underwriting i
syndicate and the depositing of it in

I Decision Affirmed
Washington Nov 4The United
States supreme court today dismissed
I the case of the St Paul Northern
railroad as appellate against the St
Paul Minneapolis Manitoba Rail
road company appellee involving the
ownership of the railroad land from
Watabab Minn to Brainerd in the
same state thus affirming the decision
of the United States circuit court of ap
peals for the Eighth circuit These
lands had been conveyed to the Mani
toba company by the governor of the
state but it was claimed by the St
Paul and Northern Pacific that they
had not been earned as the road has
not been constructed by the Manitoba
company but rather by the St Paul
Northern Pacific company itself The I
state legislature sought by an act inI I
1S77 to transfer the lands notwith
standing the governors conveyance
but the court held that the Northern I
Pacific did not by the provisions of
I this act acquire any such title to the
land as to enable it to maintain a suit
The dismissal of the case by the su
preme court sustains this view The
dismissal was however the result of an
agreement between the contending par
ties and this fact suggests a compromise

any necessity to fortifying postoffices

New Scheme Proposed For Next
Cleveland 0 Nov President
Frank DD Haas Robinson will propose
a new scheme at the coming annual
meeting of the national baseball league
It is that the fining of players by the
umpires be done away with and that
the umpire be fined 50 for every case
in which he fails to enforce the rules
Every time a player breaks a rule es
pecially those regarding personal con
duct towards the umpire the umpire
must put him out of the game When
enough players are put out of the game
to make it impossible to proceed the
game must be stopped and the admis
sion mopey returned to the spectators
and made good to the management out
of the salaries of the players
Mr Robinson firmly believes this plan
will do away with the disorderly tactics
which have lately been on the increase
in the league games

Hanna Lost Sight of For Time Be

Columbus 0 Nov 4Many talk
about a crisis in Ohio Some believes
that a crisis is impending The talk
about a combine in the legislature
against Senator Hanna has subsided
pending the interest in the official
counting of the vote in close counties
s the official canvass of the vote in 83
counties proceeded today the Republican
can pluralities on the state ticket in
creased and on the legislative tickets
it appeared to be getting toward 3 very
close shave
While the Republican plurality on the
State ticket exceeds 28000 the vote on
the legislative is almost as close as it
could be For this reason there is still
unusual anxiety at the state headquar
ters of both parties
The Republicans still claim that the
legislature stands 75 Republicans to 70
Democrats on joint ballot for senator
and that their candidates for repre
sentatives in three of the close counties
have been elected by the following plu
ralities Delaware county 29 Wood
county 28 Noble county 85 3 total of
142 on the pluralities of these three
counties A change of 72 votes prop
erly distributed in these three counties
would therefore have turned the re
sult in the legislature by giving these
three representatives to the Democrats
Then the legislature would have stood
72 Republicans and 73 Democrats on
joint ballot for senator
When it is remembered that the total
vote of Ohio last year was over 1000000
I and that it was almost 1000000 this
year it is readily seen that i is such
a small percentage that it cannot be
I clearly expressed in figures or frac
tions or language And this is what
makes the Democratic state committee
continue to claim the legislature and
the Republican state committee to be
so closey on guard in watching the
counting the
The official count of Delaware county
is in but with protests and notices of
contest from the Democrats and the
same is true of Noble county The of
ficial count of Wood county will not be
completed till Saturday although they
expect to get through tomorrow
In Wood county today the Demo
crats protested against counting the
vote of a precinct where the olace of
voting was outside of the precinct but
within the ward Had this precinct
been thrown out i would have elected
the Democratic candidate for represent
ative by a plurality of five instead of
the Republican candidate by 28 The
vote of the precinct was counted and
the Democratic protest filed Other
technicalities are expected in the prog
ress of the vote in that county tomor
row In Noble county there was a long
contest over 27 scratched tickets that
were finally thrown out because they
were not properly marked This was a
Republican county Every point is be
ing contested in the official count of the
close counties
Chairman Nash says tonight that the
Republicans have a safe majority of
five on joint ballot in the legislature
He admits that the pluralities are small
in some counties but claims they are
safe He has no doubt of the result in
any counties which he claims except
possibly Wood county and in the event
of the loss of that representative he
says the legislature would still stand
74 Republicans to 71 Democrats and
have a majority of three on joint ballot
for senator Chairman Nash said the
returns from the Thirteenth district
showed that the Republicans had u plu
rality of 432 so that there is no longer
any of the state senators in doubt and
the senate will stand 19 Democrats and
17 Republicans
At Republican state headquarters
Summit county is not considered so
doubtful as heretofore and its two rep
resentatives are bemg conceded to the
Democrats This would make the
house crats 58 Republicans and 51 Demo
Chairman McConville does not admit
that the Republicans have carried the
Thirteenth district for their candidate
for state senator and he still claims
the representatives from Noble Dela
ware Wood Muskingum and other
counties claimed by the Republicans
He also expects the official count to
give the Democrats two of the 12 mem
bers of the legislature from Cuyahoga
county In all these counties and in
others he says there will be contests
for the seats in the event of the cer
tificates of election being given to the
Chairman McConville charges fraud
inthe close counties and in some Re
publican counties He says nearly all
the close counties have gone Republic
an heretofore and the Republicans still
have the machinery in those counties
He says the returns have been held
back and i looks suspicious Other
counties have completed their counting
while the doubtful counties are still at
i He says the result was known defi
nitely in Cincinnati yesterday morning
and he cannot get definite results even
tonight from Cleveland where he expects
pects the vote to be very close on two
or three members of the legislature
Chairman McConville will remain here
on duty until the official count of all the
counties is completed
The Republicans claim the election
of representatives from the following
