"WINNIPEG, April !27.—The opening battle
the campaign against Kiel has been
fought and WOJ. Gen. Middleton. with ail
idvauco detachment on the right bank of
-he Saskatchewan, encountered th rebels
Friday fifteen miles souta of liatjcho'S
Crossing. Two hundred Indian and
French half-breeds lay in am
bush in a ravine, and opened a beavy lira
3N the troops. GON. Miduletou at ouco tie
ployed the troops in skirmishing or lor.
Battery A could not at first fe.*l tne enemy
with their guns, so gooJ. was h_ir sholtjr.
Eventually, however, the battery got into
a better position and rained A raking
Qr« among them. Two houses in wiiieli
the rebel reserves were secluded were
demolished. The rebels next made a dash
and fought the Nineteenth battalion at
2LO3E quarters, but t'ue severe fire from the
left wing forced the rebels to again retire.
The fight was carried on in an Indian style
by the rebels, who were always either con
cealed behind trees or in the bush. Their lira
was hot and very effective.
Capt. Clark, with the sharpshooters, first
advanced in skirmishing order after the
icouts signaled danger, anl closely follow
ing were the Toronto school of infantry, the
latter taking the right flank. The conflict
now became general and very severe. The
Indians were exceedingly combative, AND
the war-whoop could be heard distinctly
some distance. Theyrallied time an 1 again,
keeping up an incessant Ore for fully an
hour. Subsequently the fire slackened
on the part of the enemy, but was
again resumed shortly aftor noon. The
prairie was sot on fire as a result of the bat
tle, but a heavy rain sot in soon after.
The rebels were finally driven from their
ambush by the hard firing of the volun
teers.
Gen. Middleton had a close call, having
been shot through the hat Gen. Mildleton's
loss was three killed and fifty wounded.
The half-breed loss is not known, but it is
sertainly heavy. The rebels will now bo
rapidly pushed, and fought whenever they
make a stand.
A dispatch from the battle fiell says: "It
was evident that if the rebels had been all
armed, or, had artillery, the day would
have gone hard with us."
At the point where the fight took place
there are two low bluffs, from which the
rebels fired their first shots. Between thesa
bluffs, which are about 500 yards apart, is a
piece of level and open prairio that extends
back about 1,000 yards, across which runs a
deep ravine, with timber in the bottom run
ning back in places apparently for a mile.
On the west side, about in the center, stand
two log houses and straw-stacks.
The loss of the Canadian forces is ten or
twelve killed and forty or fifty wounded.
As far AS could be seen, the enemy left no
dead on the field, though twenty-five of
them were shot and about a dczsn captured.
The rebels seem to be composed of about an
equal number of half-breeds and Indians, in
all not more than 200, and are supposed to
be under the command of Gabriel Dumont.
RUSSIA AND ENGLAND.
Both Countries Continue to Halt on tho
Brink of War.
LONDON, April 27.—The cabinet ministers
were hurriedly and somewhat unexpectedly
summoned to a meeting Saturday morning.
It
was
rumored that alarming news had
been received regarding the movements of
Gen. Komaroff in Afghanistan.
The cabinet council lasted three hours and
a half. It is rumored that the course to be
pursued by the ministry in the house of
commons on Monday, when the debate on
the vote of credit comes up, was de
cided on, but nothing definito concerning
the decision reachod has transpire!. Re
ports from St. Petersburg state that Russflt
is largely augmenting tho number oc the
subaltern officers in all^her regiments, and
that other preparations for war are progress
ing with increased vigor.
The excitement Saturday was intense.
The ameer's treachery is more than sus
pected, and France's sudden display of firm
ness in regard to Egypt had given
the impression that the Freycinet gov
ernment had effected some SORT
of an understanding with Russia.
England's isolation was never more
complete. There is no despondency, how
ever, either among the ministry or people.
It is reported that Earl Granville has tele»
graphed instructions to Sir Evelyn ^Baring,
the British minister to Egypt, to support
Nubar Pasha to the utmost extremity in hi3
refusal to make apologies or explanation for
the suppression of The Bosphore
Egyptien.
Nubar Pasha shows no signs of yielding to
the demands
of France. The French
transports, with 4,000 troops on board,
which are now in the Suez canal, have been
ordered to remain there for the present. The
French Mediterranean fleet has arrived at
Corfu.
British transports at Woolwich have been
ordered to load, until otherwise instructed,
all their war stores for India instead of
Suakim.
The government has ordered the imme
diate construction of forty gunboats.
These new gunboats are to be according
to the Admiralty specifications of a
pew typo
of naval
architacture.
They will carry light shell guns for the pur
pose of destroying torpedo boats and have a
coal stowage capacity which will render
them capable of steaming 1,000 miles with
out recoaling. In addition to tho charter of
the steamers already announced, tlie govern
ment has also chartered the steamer En
ergia. The Energia will be converted into
an armed cruiser.
A. St. Petersburg special dispatch to The
Standard says that negotiations continue
between tho Russian and the British govern
ments. The frontier question presents no
serious difficulty, but the Penjdeh affair de
lays the meeting of the boundary commis
sion, headfcd by M. Lessar for Russia,
and Sir Peter Lumsden for Great
Britain. Russia,

doors,bird cages, coffins,
shrouds,etc. etc.lurhe keeps the best assort
ment in town and a goodquallty of goods
the dispatch, is will­
cede Zulficar
ST
in return for Penjdeh.
That accomplished, tho boundary commis
sion could probably arrange for the with,
drawal of both Russian and Afghan troopi
from the disputed zone. This solution oi
the difficulty, it is suggested, however, is
only possible if England foregoes her claim
for satisfaction from Russia for the Penjdeh
affair. Satisfaction, continues the dispatch,
Russia will not give,

command of tho Russian forces.
ST. PETEKSHCHG, April 27.—Tho czar has

NORFOLK, Va., April 23.—An officer of

and Russian vessels

oted, and tho men on both ships looked
for an engagement If war should be de
clared the ship leaving first would be al
lowed twenty-four hours start. The other
ship would then follow, and when nine
miles from shore on tho high seas the en
gagement would probably take place.
Italy 2«ot in Alliance with England.
NEW YORK, April 27.—The Herald's Rome
correspondent denies, on authority, that
Italy wili occupy Saakim, an I states that
in conversation Signor Manani, minister of
foreign flairs, expressed satisfaction that
Italy had not signed an alliance with Eng
land, v. i.o was now in such grave embarrass
ment.
A Letter from the Czar.
NEW YORK, April 27.—A Berlin dispatch
tatos that the Emperor "William, on

United STA'EI Troops Talse I'ossession of
PANAMA—Aizpnra Arrested.
NEW YORK, April 27.—A special cable
from Panama announces that the American
troop--, 5JO trong, have entered the city and
occu[ IAA all the American property with
out resistance. Aizpura, the rebel
leader, and three of his staff were arrested,
and so completely were thoy ^sur
prised that, when thoy realized their
situation they went almost wild with
RA RE. His rebel followers threaten
to burn the city if he is not releasad. A
disaster similar to that at Chlon was un
doubtediy prevented by the timely action of
t-'.:C American troop.-. RE-enforcements of
B'JO men have arrived at Colon, and Com
mander MeCalla has issued a proclamation
taking charge of the city. There was some
iiriag, and one rebel was killed and three
wounded. Tho French consul issued a vio
lent protect against the action of the Amer
icans. In the evening it was found neces
sary to clear the plaza by a Gatling gun.
One rebel was killed and three wounded.
Order has now been restored.

THE GAS WELL RIOT.
SIHtou Weston Sentenced to Five Years in
the Penitentiary.
RITTSBURG, Pa., A ril 27.—Judge Bayley
Saturday refused the motion for a new trial
in tho case against Milton Weston,
tho wealthy farmer of the Mur
raysville gas well riot Many
letcers respecting the character of defend
ant, from business men of Chicago and
other eitioj were read. Counsel asked for
the lowest possible sentence, but the judge
replied that as the defendant had stood so
well with his fellows, it proved that he had
sinned against light and knowl
edge, and, if anything,
the sen
tence should weigh the heavier,
He
was then
santenced to pay a flue of 6
cents, the cost of prosecution, and undergo
coiiiin'jmenfc in tho western penitentiary for
five years. Weston's attorneys will goto
Philadelphia to apply to the supreme court
for a special allocutar admitting Weston to

PLEUROPNEUMONIA IN ILLINOIS AND
MISSOURI ATTRACTING ATTENTION.
1 Meeting Called by Illinois Cattlemen
to Consider
the
Subject—The Outlook
for Business—Crops in Kautsu
and ELSEWHERE.
SPRINGFIELD, Ills., April 37.—Tho follow
ing call signed by a number of cattle
breeders has just been issued:
To THE CATTLE-BREEDERS OF ILLINOIS
The undersigned deem it of
the utmost im
portauce that immediate steps be tak n to
lire vent the further introduction and spread
contagious diseases among tho domestic
miiuals of tho state. Tho serious outbreak
)f contagious pleuro-pneumonia in an ad
joining state, and the infection in a single
eounty thereof of over sixty herds, number
:ng over 100, OUI) head of cattle,
ind the increased danger of the
spread of tho disease, make it ad
ble that the stock-breeders of
the state should join in JOME concerted
move
to devise adequate means to copo with this
much dreaded piague, which threatens TODO'
jtroy the cattle interest in this state, now
valued at over JF.)0,000,000.
The undersigned request that the cattle
breeders and feeders of the state meet in con
vention in tho city of Springfield on Thurs
day, April 3D, 1885, at 10 o'clock a. m., to
consider legislation and other matters cal
culated to insure the safety of this extensive
industry, upon which the prosperity of the
state is so largely dependent.
A me«.ing was held Friday afternoon in
the agricultural department at the capitol,
at which were exhibited portions of the
lungs of cattlo deceased from plouro-pneu
monia. Dr. Paaren, state veterinarian, dis
sected the diseased portions and explained to
the largo audience of legislators and cattle
men present the origin and progress of the
malady which is at present creating such
apprehension throughout the country.
An important bill was introduced in the
senate on the subject of pleuro-pnoumonia,
which authorizes the appointment by th9
governor of three state commissioners,
whose duty it shall be to investigate all
cases of contagious or infectious disease
among domestic animals, and to use all
proper means to exterminate and prevent
tho spread of such disease.
ST. LOUIS, April 2 —It was learned here
Friday that Attornoy General Garland,
after a furthor examination of the law on
the subject, had reversed his decision em
powering the commissioners of agriculture
to purchase and slaughter all cattle affected
with contagious diseases. As this im
poses the burden
of stamping
out the
disease on states or individuals, meet
ings of persons interested were held
to consider the matter. An appeal was sent
Governor Marmaduke, asking him to call a
special session of tho legislature. The gov
ernor in his reply doss not reiu-e to call a
special sossion. but says as the legislature
failed to take action at its recent session the
parties interested ought to subscribe suffi
cient money to meet tho demand. He feels
certain this monoy would le refunded by
the stato. Tho effort made here to raise
mouey to pay for cattle slaughtered in Cal
loway county has practically failed.
Bradstrect on Business.
NEW YORK, April 27.—The warm
weather of the last few days has encour
aged retailers at the east to make renewed
purchases. This they have been doing to a
moderate extent, the buying being on small
orders. At the west, farmers generally
being busy with spring work, country deal
ers have less incentive to go into the mar
ket. Telegrams to Brads treat's present
this view of the situation, although,
as is also noted, there has been a
better feeling in trade circles, based on the
improvement in the weather, and, it must be
confessed, on a widespread notion that a wax
abroad is inevitable and that it will stimu
late business in the United States. There
is no better outlook in industrial lines. The
volume of merchandiso moving, as per cur
rent reports, continues about as last week.
Leading freight line officials announce that
tho total weight of freight moved since
Jan. 1, both east and west, is not as heavy
as in a liko portion of 1884.
There were 19S failures in the United
States during the last week, as compared
with 19G in the preceding week, and with
164, 186, and 105, respectively, in the cor
responding weeks of IS84, 1SS3, and 1883.
About 85 per cent, wore those of small
traders, whose capital was less than $5,000.
Canada had twenty-one—an increase of two.
News from tlio Wheat Fields.
ATCHISON, Kan., April 27.—The state
board of agriculture, in their March report,
estimated the wheat crop at 1,000,000 acre3
in good condition. An average crop is from
13,000,000 to 15,000,000 bushels, hence our
crop this year on that basis would be about
that amount, but since that time reports hav«
been received here which indioate that the
crop will not pan out as well as estimated,
and it is safe to say that the yield will NOT
be more than 10,000,000 bushels
ST. PAUL, April 2.— The Omaha road has
received reports from over sixty stations on
its lines in Minnesota and Wisconsin con
cerning spring wheat and other grains.
From them it appears that spring wheat is
well along, although the season is at least a
week late. The reports indicate that not
withstanding war rumors there will not be
much increased acreage of wheat, mauy of
tho farmers, however, nearly doubling thoir
acreage in flaxseed. In Wisconsin and
southern Minnesota large numbers are also
seeding land to timothy for stock AND dairy
purposes.
