Six Indians Murdered and Several Whites
Slain by Skin Com

Preparations for" a General Out

of the Body in

An Expert Crook Attempts to Kob
TLTany of a Package of
Cowboys vs. Indians.
DntANoo, Col., June 22.— messenger
from the DaUores valley, who arrived this
afternoon, says the Indians have killed his
neighbor, named Gruthner, seriously
wounded his wife and burned his house,
barns, etc. The messenger confirms the
report that cowboys had killed six of a am
ily of Indians. One escaped, came to the
agency, told his story and immediately 250
warriors came to the agency and demanded
revenge. Agent Stollsteinier pacified them
by agreeing to go with twenty-five of
their number to Fort Lewis, there to get an
escort of soldiers and proceed to the scene
of the trouble to investigate the whole mat
ter and bring back the bodies of their
dead comrades. ' Accordingly the agent
and Indians passed through here
this evening en route to Fort Lewis. An
other messenger arrived this evening, bring
ing a report that a party of Indians met
Joe Dougherty while on the way to his
home near Mitchell Springs, killed him
and carried his wife into captivity.
Capt. Perrin, who was in camp in Monte
zuma valley with three companies, sentCapt.
Dougherty with his command to the scene
of the murder. It is stated that the com
" mander of Fort Lewis, hearing of
the action of Capt. Perrin, immediately
sent a company of cavalry to intercept
Capt. Dougherty, fearing he might lose his
discretion, and seek revenge for the death
of his brother and the captivity of his wife.
There are many conflicting stories as to who
commence the troubles. The cowboys
claim the Indian; on the other hand the
Indians and their agent accuse the cowboys
of earning out their threat to kill all
Indians found out of the reservation.
Fears off a Great Outbreak-- Causes
of the Disturbance.
Washington, June 22. The war de
partment has received reports from Fort
Reno, Indian Ter., dated the 20th hist,, to
the effect that great excitement prevails at
that place over a threatened Indian outbreak
by the Cheyeunes. The Indians known as
the Southern Cheyennes are making prepa
tions to go on the war path. Troops have
been dispatched to quell the disturbances.
A few days since troops were sent to
quit a local disturbance among
these same Indians. The war department
officials are not informed as to the cause of
the threatened outbreak. If these Indians
go on the war path there will
be great difficulty in quieting them.
The Cheyeanes - are reported to be
as troublesome to deal with as are the
Apaches. The country, however, in which
the former lives would be more advanta
geous to the soldiers pursuing them than is .
the rocky country in which the latter are
being followed. News was received at the
war department, late this afternoon, to the
effect that the difficulty with the'Chey
ennes is XX'A\ yyy .-
Gen. Auguer has ordered four companies
of the Fifth cavalry to go to the seat of the
disturbance, .in addition to ' the com
panies previously sent to Reno.
This makes ten companies. at
Reno and three additional companies
are held in readiness to go at a moment's
notice. Gen. Auguer recommends the ap
pointment of a commission to ascertain the
cause of discontent. The Southern Chey
ennes are locked in the western portion of the
territory. The country is level and devoid of
trees, except along the streams. Owing to
its great extent, it is very easy for the
Indians to keep out of the way of troops.
It is believed here that the Indians are well
rupplied with arms and ammunition. They
are said to be good fighters and fight
altogether on horsebrck. The last trouble"
with the Cheyennes occurred about nine
years ago, and continued for more than a
year. It was caused by Indians of that
tribe massacreing a portion of a family mov
ing overland from Georgia. It occurred
in Kansas. The father, mother and
daughter were killed and the four remain
ing children taken captive. The daughter,
who was killed before she was captured,
took the life of an Indian
as he attempted to get into the wagon
where the children were gathered. Prior
to this massacre the Cheyennes became un
friendly towards the whites. A number of
men disguised as Indians had burned a
bridge on the Kansas Pacific railway for
the purpose of stopping a train that they
might plunder it. After the destruction of
the bridge soldiers were sent to capture the
men implicated. An officer chanced one
day to see an Indian standing alone
at a distance. He drew nearer
fired and killed him. The Indian was the
son of Lone Wolf, the great Cheyenne
chief. - When he was murdered 400 ponies
were killed above his [grave though
Lone Wolf himself did: not participate in
the outbreak which followed his son's
death. It was thought that the shooting of
the young Indian greatly influenced the
tribe to go on the war-path. The massacre
of the Georgia family followed, and the
one year's fighting began. ',
Oaring Attempt at Robbery.
New York, Juge 22.— A man. entered
Tiffany's Broadway jewelry house this
afternoon and asked to see some of the
finest diamonds, representing that E. S.
Stokes of the Hoffman house had sent him.
The salesman produced a Dumber of pack
ages of diamonds, and right under his eyes
the stranger grabbed a package valued at
$1,500 and attempted to escape. The alarm
was sounded and two policemen captured
the thief with the diamonds in his hand.
He made a desperate resistance and twice
succeeded in breaking loose from the
officers. At the third attempt both officers
pulled their pocket billies and pounded him
,over head and face until he was a shock
ing sight. At the police station he gave
his name as Erasmus Brown of 192 Howard
street. St. Louis. He is unknown to the
detectives here, and is thought to be an ex
pert Western crook.
Poverty and Crime.
Wheeling, W. Va., June 22.— Great
excitement was caused yesterday morning
in the village of West Wheeling, on the
Ohio side of the river, by the attempt of a
Polish potter named Neffler to burn the body
of his daughter in one of the kilns of his
charcoal works. He said he was too poor
to give his child other burial. 7 Early in the
morning he fired the kibJand- strapped the
body to a board so that it might be pushed
into the furnace. His intentions leaked out
and soon a crowd of a hundred and fifty or
two hundred people, gathered. The city
marshall of Bellaire was sent for,, and the
body was removed r from the custody of the
parents and given burial by. Senator Wag
ner and others. 7 Last night it was reported
that Neffler had attempted to"7 kill his wife
with an axe, saying that he had been com
manded by the Almighty to take her life.

,- an unknown man was found •by some boys
y in a well, • head; downward,' yesterday after-
I noon. The man's arms and legs were tied
i with a rope, and his • head wrapped in a

Is it Blackmail?'
Springfield, 111., June 22.—Represen
tative Thomas James of Randolph county,
aged 64 years, as to-night charged with
an assault with intent to outrage Nannie
James,- a twelve-year-old girl page in the
state house. A warrant was issued for his
arrest and he is expected here either on the
midnight train or to-morrow. The affair
created great indignation here, and opin
ions vary as to whether this is a genuine
case or one of blackmail. Representative
James is a man of considerable wealth and
has a very estimable wife now in the city.
The girl who charges the crime is delicate
looking and young appearing even for her
years. The warrant alleges the crime was
committed about a month ago.
"Distinguished" Criminals.
New York, June There was a set
of extremely distinguished criminals before
Judge Barrett in oyer and terminer to-day.
They were F. Ward, Mrs. Yseult Dudley,
''Big Frank" McCoy, John Carpenter, the
alleged murderer, and other lesser lights.
Mrs. Dudley's case went over. Gen. Tracy
was anxious that the trial of his client, Mr.
Ward, should go on, but Judge Barrett de
cided to take up Carpenter's case first, so it
was begun. 831
Mysterious Murder.
Cincinnati, June 22. Very little pro
gress has yet been made in gaining a clue
to the murder of Charles S. Batkin, found
in an alley Saturday morning. A barouche
or buggy drawn by a dark colored horse
was seen leaving the alley Friday night,
and such a team was hired that night by a
liveryman to Dr. J. H. McKinzie, who has
been arrested on suspicion. He denies all
knowledge of the murder, and says he was
so drunk he could only sleep. Marcus
Smith, who was with McKinzie, has also
been arrested.
Shot Through Jealousy.
Lincoln, 111., June 22.— Wylie Connell,
a cobbler, shot Wallace Thompson to-day
with fatal results. The cause of the trag
edy was jealousy. The shooting took place
on the public streets. Connell was arrested
with the weapon still in his hand and was
lodged in the county jail. Thompson is
aged twenty years. Connell is a brother of.

How Grant Passed the Day*
Mt. McGregor, N. V., June 22.—Sit
ting in a sheltered spot on the piazza, where
the breeze could not reach him, Gen. Grant
quietly passed the morning until noon,
writing a part of the time. At lunch time
the general entered the cottage and did not
again appear outside until between 3 and 4
o'clock, when he strolled about the
piazza for a short time. He
soon went indoors, 'for the temperature was
about 60 ° ! and the stiff breeze that had fol
lowed the early morning rain rendered
light overcoats acceptable to well persons.
The storm of the morning threw down" the
one wire from the mountain, and thus cut
communication with the outer world. Gen.
Grant last appeared out of doors to-day at 6
o'ciock, while the family were at
dinner. His stay was short. The air was
chilly and the cottage was too cool for com
fort, so the huge fireplace in the parlor was
filled with logs from the mountain woods
and the cheerful blaze reached up the chim
ney and crackled on the hearth.
The general during the evening sat where
he could watch the tire. At 7:30
the thermometer marked 53 ° and at 9 had
fallen to 50 ° . The general went to bed at
9. At that time his voice was sufficiently
clear for him to say to Dr. Douglas: "I
have had a comparatively easy day." At
10 the physician said the general was quiet
and about going to sleep. His pulse was
seventy-two, and the doctor anticipated a
quiet night. Between 10 and 11 Dr. Doug
las retired.

Broke the Jam.
Fairfield, Me., June 22.Considera
ble apprehension has been felt by the lum
bermen of Fairfield in the last few days
that they would not get their logs that
came out of the east branch of the Kenne
bec. The logs, when two miles below In
dian pond dam, began to form a jam on the
bend of the river, where the bank is from
50 to 100 feet high. It was some time be
fore any one knew the logs were hung up,
and jam containing 14,000,000 logs was
formed. A large amount of powder was
deposited in tbe center of the jam and a
full head of water was collected above, and
at a proper moment the powder was ex
ploded. The jam, with its 14, 000, 000 logs,
went out in a body, crushing and rumbling
with a noise which was heard a long ' dis
tance. The logs were piled twenty feet
high. Many of them were standing up
right on the jam, from the place where the
jam formed to the forks- Fhe current runs
at the rate of sixteen miles an hour.

Authentic List of the Ministry —Local
Press Opinion on the
Tlie Situation.
London, June 23. — As a result of the
queen's efforts the Marquis of Salisbury has
resolved to accept Mr. Gladstone's promise
to use his influence with the liberals to pre
vent factious opposition. It ; is expected
that Lord Salisbury will announce the for
mation of his cabinet to-day, with Mr.
Bourke probably as chief secretary for Ire
land. Writs will then be issued
for the re-election of the cabinet members.
Mr. Gladstone has made a promise to Lord
Salisbury to give the new government as
much time as possible during the remainder
of the season. The correspondence between
the party leaders will probably be presented
to parliament to-day. It is stated that the
leaders have arranged to make an effort to
carry the Welsh intermediate education
bill, the Australian confederation bill, the
Irish national education bill and the min
ister for Scotland bill. Lord Salisbury de
clined to include the Scotch crafter's bill.
The sales bill will be finished to-night. Par
liament will meet to-morrow, Wednesday,
to obtain royal assent, and then adjourn for
the re-election.
The following is an authentic list of the
new cabinet: Prime minister and secretaryf
foreign affairs, Marquis of Salisbury; first
lord of the treasury, Sir Stafford Northcote;
chancellor of the exchequer, Sir Mithail E.
Hicks-Beath; lord high chancellor, Sir
Hartinge Gifford; ! lord president of the
council, Vicount Cranbrook; lord privy seal,
the Earl of Harrowby; secretary for the
home department, Sir Richard Asheton
Cross; secretary, for the colonial depart
ments; Col. Frederick Stanley; secretary for
war, Right Hon. William Henry Smith;
secretary of state for India, Lord Randolph
Churchill; fiirst lord of the admiralty, Lord
George Hamilton; president of the local
government board, Arthur James Balfour;
president of the board of trade, the Dukes
of Richmond and Gordon; vice president
os the council, Hon. Edward Stanhope;
lord lieutenant of Ireland, the Earl of Car
narvan; • lord chancellor of Ireland, Right
Hon. Edward Gibson, The minor offices
have not yet been filled.
- finally decided.
- Sir H. F. Ponsonby, the queen's private
secretary, called upon the Marquis of Salis
bury at noon to-day. It is supposed he
was the bearer of another message from the
queen. During the conference of the Con
servative leaders which followed this visit
the secretary called again, this time in the
royal carriage, and had a second talk with
the Marquis of Salisbury. The endeavors
of her majesty to bring about an understand
ing between Liberal and Conservative lead
ers, that the former continue in office or the
latter take office and carry on the govern-,
ment, are unceasing. Mr. Winn, the Con
servative "whip" in the house of commons,
•has gone to confer with Sir Stafford North
cote. The persons in conference to-day
with the Marquis of Salisbury were Duke
of Richmond, the Earl of Cranbrook, - . and
Lord John Manners. It was decided that
the Marquis of Salisbury should assume the
office of premier at once and form his ' min
istry. MMX . '-'-■'
PRESS opinion.
The Times in an editorial says: "Mr.
Chamberlain and Sir Charles Dilke may
discover there are institutions in Ireland
such as the poor law, guardians and munic
ipal counsels, administering of public
money largely that are only prevented from
abusing powers by the supervision of the
permanent officials," whom it is proposed
to sweep summarily away. The Con
seroatives must be prepared with an
alternative policy to demolish Mr. Cham
berlain's wild scheme. It also says it
thinks Lord Salisbury's failure to obtain
the desired pledges from the Liberals shows
weakness in his position. It adds, however,
that the Liberals, though perfectly able to
do so at any time, have nothing but trouble
to gain thereby and will probably not at
tempt to defeat the government. The
Standard in an editorial says that the polit
ical dead-lock has been settled by conces
sions on both sides. Regarding the quali
ties of the new ministers, it admits that the
front row of the Conservative benches in
the house, of commons will be un
equally matched with the gladia
iators in debate who . sit on the
opposite. The Standard comforts itself for
the comparative lack of oratorical power
by observing that the present task is to ad
minister, not to discuss. The Daily News,
in an editorial, says that no specific pledges
have been given that a general promise has
been offered that the giant's strength of
the opposition shall not be used like a
Sir Charles Dilke, addressing a meeting
of Liberals last night, said he was pre
pared to give the Conservatives reasonable
assurances. He wished to study in Ireland
a plan for the devolvement from parliament
to Welsh, Scotch and Irish bodies much of
the business that parliament is
now not competent to -dis
charge. He would visit Ireland
as soon as possible for that purpose. He
believed that many Irish officials were in
favor of decentralization, and many agreed
that it was necessary to abolish Dublin
castle.". He thought that Lord Salisbury's
recent attitude savored of bluff and brag,
and was' not likely to induce the Liberals
to enter into a formal compact.
, Ireland's AFFAIRS.
Dublin, June 22.— -Earl Spencer, has
started for London. The Nationalist mem
bers of the corporation have unanimously
selected Mr. Sullivan M. P., for the mayor

was hoisted for the first time to-day. It is
rumored that Mr. Chamberlain and Sir
Charles Dilke will visit Ireland shortly, not
to deliver speeches but to inquire as to the
greatest extent which it would be practica
ble to carry the local government scheme.

',y Washington,' Juno 22.— Two or three
weeks ago faces beamed with satisfaction
over the good hews" that passed from Dem
ocrat to Democrat. This was the last
month of the ; fiscal year. -It was
to ; ; be ; signalized \ . by 7 the administra
tion in turning out just as many
"rascals" as there might be time to sign
commissions for successors. Men who had
waited here from inauguration day and had
begun to grow heartsick and seedy took a
fresh grip on their nerve, mortgaged their
hopes for enough to pay another
mouth's y board- and renewed the vigil.
The month is two-thirds gone. There have
been a good many ; changes, " but not 'the
grand sweep that was promised. - Where a
gap occurred 100 were waiting to fill it, and
of course the ninety and nine are despondent
and the grumbling is .7 .-..;*
MM- \ m ' growing loud again.
Some of it is heard around the departments.
The secretaries listen to the complaints and
then answer them by pointing to the con
tinual pressure. There would be two changes
where : there is one now, they say,
but for the manner in which they
are hampered and delayed by visitors. ' To
get anything done at all the secretaries
have restricted their hours and have named
Saturday as a day when they cannot be
seen. The president is known .to be seri
ously contemplating a proposition to close
the doors of the White house to office-seek
ers after tho Ist of July. Eugene Higgins
of the treasury, department, who is almost
as big a man as Cleveland, says: "I have
done nothing for thirty days but answer
questions about appointments. Now lam
done. The president and , secretary are
calling for papers and I've got to have them
ready." , No more questions for Mr. Hig
gins. 7 Hassler, the clerk of the; interior de
partment, says it is no . trouble to find
places, but time is required to pick from
of applicants the man for the office. That
is what is delaying the changes in his de
partment. . Never before since the war was
the chief hotel and . boarding houses of
Washington so well patronized at this time
of year. It requires nerve to keep going to
the White house, but not so much to infest
the departments. In the dim corridors
frayed trousers aud gaping shoes don't look
so bad. ' There is where the crowds . are to
be seen. On Friday Secretary Lamar's
ante-room was so full that it took squeezing
and elbowing to get inside the door. Once
the entrance was made it was discovered
that visitors had strung themselves out in a
long file like people waiting at a box office
and were moving up slowly in a regular or-

A Report That Austria Objects to
XXXM' yXyyXMy ■ : Him. ■
Special to the Globe.
Washington, June 22. The report that
the Austrian government had refused to re
ceive Mr. Keiley does not ; surprise anyone
familiar with diplomatic usages. 7 A mem
ber of the Italian legation sums up the situ
ation in this fashion: "Austria's objection
to Mr. Keiley is probably . founded on two
reasons; first the Austrian court, pro
verbially a proud one, feels itself
insulted by having a' gentleman accredited
to it who has been refused by another
court. European sovereigns call themselves
brothers. In other words if Mr. Keiley
was not good enough for Italy he is not
good enough for Austria. In the second
place Mr. Keiley's presence as a minister at
Vienna- would be unpleasant to the
Italian government, with which • Austria
has relations which she does • not probably
want to embarass." "But will not Austria
be asked to give some reason for refusing Mr.
Keiley?'.' was asked. The diplomate smiled.
"Although a loyal Italian," he said, "Hove
America and American institutions, and I
hope this government will not commit; a
faux pas of that description.: It would bean
egregious .blunder . and one that Austria
. would : never : forgive/ Such proceeding
would be so contrary to international cour
tesy that it would -make , this country the
laughing stock of the world. No govern
ment is bound to give any reason
whatever to another " for declining
to receive a person as that government's
minister. . Your own government has done
this on several occasions, and the. request
has been at once complied with without in
the least disturbing the friendly relations of
the two y countries. During Gen. Grant's
administration the Russian minister was re
called on the simple ground that President
Grant did not find it agreeable to receive
him as minister. He was recalled, if I re
member aright, almost instantly. A similar
instance occurred in President Buchanan's
time, and I think there are several others
on record prior to that. "
77 refuse TO speak. . 7' .
Washington, June 22. — Official con
firmation of the report from Vienna that
the Austrian government will 7 not receive
Mr. Keiley- as a representative 7of the
United States government ' cannot now be
obtained here. The ; secretary of state and
the Austriau legation refuse to talk upon
the subject. There are indications, how
ever, that point to the substantial correct
ness of the report. '• 7 yy- :
Morrison and the Tariff.
Washington, June 22. — In an inter
view to-day, Representative Morrison of
Illinois said that he proposed to inrroduce
another tariff bill at the first session of the
next congress. -At - what time ' during the
session, was asked. As soon as I can get
ready after congress convenes, " he
replied. Will the bill provide for
a .' '- horizontal reduction, „' as did
the measure you introduced during
the last congress? They say they do not
want a horizontal reduction. The truth ■; is
they don't -want a reduction of any s kind.
I will provide in the proposed bill for about
such a reduction in amount vas I provided
for in my last bill. It is probable that a
•number ot bills for reducing the tariff will
be introduced, but personally I .know ' of
no one who contemplates presenting such a
measure for consideration.

from hunger. Wood Crees had split off
from Big Bear and forced the latter to give

for Pitt three days ago alone. Wood Crees

marked the inauguration of 7 - the

parts of the .Union'; have formed a steady
and almost uninterrupted procession from
morning till night.; From one end of Con
gress street to the other there has been one
unbroken tide of pedestrians to and from
the great encampment. The railroads lead
ing into the city have emptied many car
loads of human freight, both uniformed
and unofficial, from every post of 'the
United 7 States. ■ New England has turned
out nearly her full compliment of posts and
thousands of unofficial citizens have come.
To-night Portland is crowded to overflow
ing, yet every additional train brings hun
dreds. Schedule time was abandoned lon
all roads early in the day, and trains were
run wild. A great many Western depart
ments, which some time ago announced to
the executive ' committee - here that they
would bring a certain number of men, have
brought in some cases ■ 777 --** v 7 I
as was expected. A great many of them
telegraphed yesterday for additional accom
modation, in various cases for from 100 to
500 men. Each department, or post, as it
comes will be promptly escorted to quarters
for the night, and everything promises to
run smoothly. . Citizens have come forward
cheerfully and many private houses
are to-night thrown open for the entertain
ment of visitors. - It is likely that all who
arrive to-night will be comfortably provided
for.;/ The grand reception 7to the com

The welcome to Commander Kountz will be

of the state, and a similar ad
dress by Mayor Deering on behalf
of the city of Portland, y Commander
Kountz will respond for the G. A. R. and
there will be brief addresses by Gen. Logan,
Hon. Hannibal Hamlin, Gov. Alger and
other, distinguished visitors. Gen Logan
and a delegation of the G. A. R. from

■ . The "Law and Order League" has issued
circulars, stating that all liquor consigned

to • ; members of : the ; Grand . Army be
seized and taken to police head
quarters, and if, after inspec
tion by the commander-in-chief,
they be found to contain any liquor they
not be forwarded to consignees, met 7 with,
instant opposition,- and the i fact of such
proposition having : ,been made .has. caused
something of a rebellious ' spirit to rise, and :
the visitors openly declare y their intention
to resist any such arbitrary action should it
be y attempted, It is not denied - that
.there are now quantities of liquors
en route, consigned to } members' of the
Grand Army who are either now here or
who are to arrive, * and prominent . officers
of the organization declare they, intend to
take and keep possession of their consign
ments. The constant agitation of 'this sub- 1

it to take a place of paramount interest. ;
A great deal is heard on all sides in re
