[ Swclal Telegram to the BKK. | It has just
seen learned that when the sheriff's posse
( truck Calarovv's camp , ono of the party llrcd
two of the Indian tepes. Three Indians
were Rliot and badly wounded and four guns
were taken from them. A runner came Into
Chapman on the Grand river , twelve miles
below hero on Friday , and reported that the
Indians had Kendall's party surrounded and
ode round them all ono day tiring towards
ihem , but not hitting one of them. This re
port agreed with the lust from Meeker
to the effect that all communication Is
cut off between him and Meeker. It
Is not known where he Is at present Six
bourn after tlio sheriff made the attack on old
Colorow , his son , Knoy Colorovv , was seen
by a ranchman going down the south side of
the White river alone , seemingly going
toward Douglass creek , where a large huntIng -
Ing party of Utcs was camped. Kney was
Been by Senator W. 11. Eddy at 4 o'clock the
same afternoon at the head of sixty Utes at
least thlity-tlvo miles trom where ho was seen
In the mornlnir making for the northwest
The party acted vury suspiciously and asked
where the trail led to , although they knew
well , having made the ti all. This party was
a reinforcement led by Colorow's son who
Is about thirty years ot ago. He effected a
Junction with the old man's party that night
at the junction of the Big Beaver and Coin
creeks near the Milk Creek battle ground.
It Is thought that the Indians now number
125 warriors. The same night twenty Utos
went to the house of a ranchman near there
and said to him ,
"Indian no want fight ; If white man want
fight , Indian ready. "
The Indians told the ranchman that three
Indians were wounded and that they would
do nothing In retaliation If the four guns wore
taken from them were given back and they
were allowed to hunt. They then loft saying
"Indians move camps no more ; If white man
want fight Ute ready. " They also said they
wore friends to the settlers but would "para
lyzo" the sheriff and his men. The place
where the Utes arn now camped
Is almost ininacccsslblo for
white men. It is densely wooded
and the Indians can stand off ten times their
own number. Colorow has been wanting to
tight for a long time but never could get a
large number of his nation to join him.
The Utes despise the negro soldiers and In
their conversation with the ranchmen men
tioned above , said :
"Ono Ulu good ten buffaloes , ( mcanlnc
colored soldiers ) . "
Mr. Burnsteln , n ranchman , lost some
horses , and while hunting them this morning
after the encounter between tlio sheriff and
Colorovv ho struck the trail of a largo party
of Indians. Ho followed It up and came up
to a big party of squaws and pappooses who
were on the trail leading to the reservation.
They were driving his stock with a grcaldcal
uf loose stock of their own. No resistance
. was made to his cutting them out. At that
time ho had not heard of the trouble.
Apprehension Felt Tor Settlers.
DENVER , Col. , August 14. [ Special Tele
gram to the UEE. | Connsldcrablo appre
hension Is felt hero for the safety of the settlers
tlors on the White river reservation in the
vicinity of Meeker. This Is caused by thu
fact that no authentic news can bo received
from the latter place as to their condition.
It Is thought that Colorow and his band are
strongly reinforced and are holding the uss
between Glonwood and Meeker , makln * it
pxtruinely dangerous for couriers to
attempt to make the trip , oven
at night. Governor Adams ha :
ordered a reinforcement of arms and ammu
nltlon shlppod to Glenvvood with all possible
baste. All the available horses belonging to
the cavalry have been gathered and sent to
the front so as to be ready In case of urgent
necessity. Telegrams were being received
kluiost hourly by the governor from cow men
all over tlio state otferlng their services In
putting an end to Colorow's murdering raid
ers. The following telegram has been re
ceived < by Governor Adams from Adju
tant General West , who Is stationed
t Glenvvood with 120 militiamen await
ing the return of the courier sent to learn
the whereabouts of Sheriff Kendall and hi
posse.
"GLENVVOOD Si'niNos To Governoi
Adams : Have consulted Mayor Connor ,
Mr. Reynolds and other prominent clti/ens.
Mid on their recommendation have sent
courier to Sheriff Kendall for Information.
No direct news from him slnco frlday. Man
In from country near Meeker last night re
ports that Senator Eddy met sixty bucks
who , ho thought , were trying to join
Calarow. This would glvo him over
ninety fighting men. Kendall has
plenty to stand off. but not enough for
kg resslve warfare. Citizens and stockmen
kbout Meeker are greatly excited and would
teen end the matter If they had suitable
arms. Infantry are no good at present. I
suggest that the militia of Loadvlllo , Denver
ind Colorado Springs with tlio Chaffo ar
tillery with gatllng guns be held In readi
ness to report at a moment's notice. There
Is plenty of forage but no commissary store.
The proposed force can make good Indians
out of the whole outtit. The courier will try
to get back Monday night Many wild re
ports but nothing authentic ,
WEST , Adjutant General. "
It Is understood that Colorow has sent his
brother to Uncompahgre Agency asking for
isblstanve and that probably lifty or sixty
narrlors will bo sent This will swell the
numbers In the renegade outtit to the neigh
borhood of 160 well armed men who know
ivcry foot of the country and a party which
It will be no easy matter to conquer.
LOUD DltUMMOND'S WTALTH.
What Ho boat By Living With 11U
American Love.
NEW VOHK , August 14. [ Special Tele
gram to the BiEl : A great deal has boon
Ft1 ihid about tlio wealth which the late Lord
Druminond would have possessed If he had
not persisted In coming to America and
living with the woman bo loved. But the
greater part ot the money to which the
family Is said to bo entitled Is , In fact. In
litigation , and ha been for a long time.
There were certain very valuable estates in
Scotland , now In possession of Lady Wll *
louehby Do Ersbcrg , but which , It Is as
sorted , rightfully belongs to the Drum-
iiiond family. These estates ro stild to
bo now vvoith fully -10,000 a year , while
Connelly they biought In the enormous In
come of 1BO,000. Lord DrunuuomVs father
. died a number of jcars ago , but his grand
father , the earl ot Perth , lias long been light
ing to get these estates back , and Is ntlll ugbt-
inn now at the ago of eighty-live. The young
Lord Drumniond was looked to to assist in
carrying on this fight , and hence It was that
his family wished him to marry a rich Amer
ican girl. Lord Drummond's maternal crand-
mother , Lady Cape ! , also left some money ,
about 5,000 a jear , which was to go to her
three children. Ono of these. Mr. Drum-
mend , had eloped to America , however , It Is
said , and was supposed to be dead , consequently
quently the other two children took the
> ,000 a year , and young Lord Drnm-
mond's claim was never recognized.
There are pome estates In France , as
It has just apjicared , which were hiBt about
to be turned over to Drumniond at the time
of ills death. These vvete bequeathed to him
bv a great aunt , the Counters De llatberg ,
and amounted to some 00,000 In securities
besides some real property. In his will ,
Drumtnond loaves all his property to his
daughter. Perclval O. Ullman , his friend
and lawyer , thinks there will bo no difficulty
In securing the property for the daughter.
He Is Inclined to believe tl t now the Eng
lish relations may take tin the little girl , and
If the Earl of Perth should die without gainIng -
Ing his suit , the little girl's claim to the Peith
estates , worth 8200,000 a year , would be
pushed.

LONDON , August 14. | New York Herald
Cable Special to the BKE.J George MacDonald -
Donald , the novelist and poet , who long ago
retired from the Presbyterian ministry , to
day attracted an Immense audience to the
Presbyterian church at Gospel Oak , a suburb
of London near liampstead Heath , by his
temporary return to the pulpit. Gospel Oak
( s so named from the fact that there Is still
standing the old tree under which vVhltlield
preached when It stood , In the language of
the title of MacDon aid's best known novel ,
among "The Annals of a Quiet Neighbor
hood. " Ho looked more llku a member of
parliament or banker than a parson clad In
light gray trousers , white vest , and black
coat and grayish whiskers and beard ,
and merry blue eyes. Although slxty-throo
he looked only forty. Ho reminds ono of
Becchor , being unaffected , Impromptu of
manner , unconventional and full of well
balanced earnestness. His readings of tha
one hundred and seventh Psalm and thu
gospel about the man who bathed in the
pool blessed by the angel , were line speci
mens of clear , Impressive elocution , and his
off-hand comments were tasteful and Inter
esting. While preaching he half leaned
upon the desk , and In a conversational tone
talked to the congregation without manu
script , at times rising to dignity and elo
quencc , and employed exquisitely poetic
Illustrations. His theme WAS executing
duty In life as best contributing
to the happiness of others and one's self. He
derives a handsomu income from his thirty
volumes of novels and nine volumes of poetry
try , and Is also In receipt of an annual pen
slon of 100 from the queen's civil list , as a
compliment to his literary rank. Ho Is not a
Presbyterian scholar , and has taken cart in
amateur theatricals for charity. Ono In the
congregation spoke to mo enthusiastically
about the preacher's peiformance on one oc
casion of Macduff.
"Oh , what a man for the Plymouth churcli
pulpit , " said one of the American colony , a :

conversation with the men confined hero by
Atchlson county for safe keeping accused of
being members ot the Franklin igang which
shot and killed several citizens 'of Holt
county , not long since , In resisting arrest for
horse stealing. It is understood that George
Stone , one of tlio prisoners , seventeen
years old , will turn state's evidence. He
seems to be afraid to toll anything , however ,
as long as the Franklins aiu at liberty , his
reason being the belief that they would bunt
ana kill him. Stone Is the son of a respect
able farmer In Atchlson county and says
lie met the Franklins the morning ot
the shooting and was pressed by them to get
Into the wagon which they were riding In ,
as ho happened to be going the same way
with them. Ho hau not been with them long
when the pursuing party came In sight , and
taking Stone with them , thu thieves took
refuge In a farm house , from the windows of
which several of the pursuers were shot.
Stone sajs he knows who did Ilia shooting.

NATIONAL BANKING SYSTEM ,
Its Recent and Great Growth in the South
and West.
COMPTROLLER TRENHOLM TALK

In the White House
Washington New * .
Opinions fly the Comptroller.
WASHINGTON , August 14. | Special Tele
gram to the BKK.J Comptiwller Trenholm ,
being asked whether , in his opinion , the na
tional banking system Is as well adapted to
the Interests of commercial communities ot
the south and west as It has proved to be to
those of the trading and manufacturing com
munities of tlio east , answered emphatically
in the alhrmatlve. In connection with this
answer ho said : "However , 1 should explain
that It has taken a much longer time for ag
ricultural communities to perceive the bene
fits of this system and to avail themselves of
Its advantages than requisite in the cases of
the others. " Ho added : "Now , however ,
the system Is making its way very rapidly
both In the west and tlio south. The exten
sion of the national banking system In those
sections has been greater In the last
two years and a half than It
has been In any part of the country during
any equal period slnco the close of the war.
Within this time the number of banks In the
louthern states has increased 37 percent ,
, nd the number In the western states 22 per
ent , while the Increase in the whole country
iorth of the Chesapeake and castof the Ohio
as been loss than 3 percent Since It Is
jafe to assume that , on the whole , people
understand tr.i-lr own business , It would ap-
icar that the tanning communities of the
loath and west recogni/o the value of the
national banking system , und 1 fully expect
o see a steady Increase in the number of
janks In these sections. "
Asked why ho called tor a statement of the
onditlon of banks August 1 , which Is some
what unusual , he iculled :
"That date was selected partly because no
rovlous reports had been made about that
line , and the Information was requisite in
order to complete statistics on
the record here. Apait from this
reason I should probably have
made a call anyhow. In order that the busi
ness public might be correctly informed as to
' .ho condition of the banks at a season at
ivhlch these Institutions are ncepared to meet
.he annual demands upon them tot the move
ment of crops. Public attention during Au
gust ana September has been generally cen
tered upon tlio bauk situation in largo cities ,
especially those In tlio eastern states. By a
natural and perfectly healthy law of trade
there is an annual flow of currency and capi
tal towards those centers in tlio spring of the
year and a rellnx Into the country as autumn
approaches. Eveiy autumn there Is a de
mand noon New York and other eastern
points for currency to bo shipped to the west
and south , and every year there arises
throughout the country an apprehension of
monetary scarcity and even of a panic be
cause of this movement. "
Whitney In n Snarl.
WASHINGTON , August 14. [ Special Tele-
Tain to the BEE. ] Secretary Whitney Imi
been accorded a great deal of praise from
the party press for his management of the
Navy department and his economic cat'e of
the funds of the navy. Up to tlio present
time , however , his great business ability has
been Insufllclent to solqo the problems
which have arisen In relation to the amount
of contracts lor the new cruisers. Whitney
liimself is anxious to ulvo the contracts to
Cramp , of Philadelphia , and that firm would
doubtless have bcon charged with the duty
of building cruisers No. Ono , Four and Five ,
but tor the express stcpulation In the law
that one of the vessels should bo built on the
Pacific coast , If , In thu judgment
of the president , It can bo builtoconomic.illy.
Besldo the two cruisers to be built , two gun
boats vvcie authoiUcd to bo constructed at
the same time. Mi. Whitney expected that
tno Union Iron works of California would
build one of these gunboats , and In that
event , tlio California concern would have
been awarded the contract for tlio gunboat
instead of a cruiser. Bui the concern could
see what was In tlio air , and retrained from
bidding on the smaller vessels. The bid of
the Union lion works on cruiser No. Four
was only 318,000 higher than the bid of
Cramp on the same vessel. As this difference
represents only about the co-t of transport
ing the steel plates from Pittsbnrg , and is not
so preat as the cost of sending the
vessel from Philadelphia to San Francisco ,
It Is looked upon as coming within the pro
visions of the law. Thiscomparison is based
on Cramp's bid to build cruisers upon the de
signs furnished by the department. These
designs were puichased by the secretary at a
cost of $25.000. Cramp submitted designs of
his own which he ottered to build for the sum
ot 8100,000 less than he would build the
others for. Now , while Secretary Whitney
Is anxious to favor the Philadelphia firm , ho
cannot do so unless ho throws over the de
signs for which a large sum was paid. Ho
roalUe the unpleasant predicament Into
which he lias gotten himselt and has
called upon the president to help
him out of the snarl. Several conferences
have been held , but up to tlio hour for clos
ing the department Saturday no conclusion
had been reached. There Is a political phase
to the question which mav have an Import
ant bearing In Inducing the decision In favor
of the California firm. The Pacific coast has
always considered that the rest of tlio coun
try treat the Interests of ttio slope as though
it were entirely o.itsido tno union. Tlio
Union Iron works employs about 1.100 work
men. It tills contract goes to California It
mav have considerable Influence upon the
votes of those employes of the Union Iron
works , whoso political opinions are not vury
firmly lixcd.

WASHINGTON , August 14. [ Special Tele
gram to the BEU. | When he was In Wash
ington a few days ago Frank Hatton related
some facts In regard to ox-Secretary Hobort
Lincoln's remarkable aversion to the Idea of
being a candidate for tlio presidency. He
says no ono can doubt the absolute sincerity
of the ex-secretary in protesting against auy
movement being made In his behalf. He
Implores his friends , It they have any regard
for him , not to think of or mention the mut
ter , lie has no desire to enter the white
house again In any capacity. Indeed , ho
seemi to hare a horror of
the place. His presence there at the assassi
nation ot bin father , and aculn after the
shooting of President Gitrflold , has caused
him to associate thought * of violence and
death Yiltu the presidential office of which ho
cannot rid himself. It Is believed that ho
iuu a 8uver tiUou feeling
elected president he would himself be In
danger of assassination. To a well known
army olllcer not long ago , who Inquired of
him about his presidential chances , Mr. Lin
coln replied :

A Significant Discovery.
FOIIIIKST , HI , , August 14. [ Special Tele
gram to tie ! BEI : . | An Important discovery
Ims just bcon made. It Is ono which will
throw much light upon a question which has
boon discussed more or less since the fright-
full disaster of Wednesday night. The
record kept by Train Dispatcher lllbbard
Indicates tbftt the Ill-fated excursion train
was run at a rate of fifty miles or over per
hour when the disaster occurred. The distance
tancefrofrt Forrest to Chatsworth Is six
miles , and It was covered In seven minutes ,
or a fraction less than a nillo a
minute. The track between these two
points is an npguulo the entire distance.
From Chats worth to the point where
tlio accident occurred the grade
B cradually downward until about a mile
from the scone of the slaughter Is reached ,
where this section of grade becomes much
inoro marked. It Is now believed hero , In the
Hunt of this discovery , that the train must
have been running at a rate of speed even
exceeding fifty miles an hour. The fact also
that the ilrst engine of the double-header
cleared the sunken culvert ROCS to show that
this passage was made like a flash. The dis
covery of this record will bo followed up
very closely by the authorities now on the
ground.

ADAMS TALKS.
The Union Pacific's President on the
Koacl'8 Affairs.
CHICAOO , August 14. | Special Telegram
to the Bun. | Charles Francis Adams , presi
dent of the Union Pacific , was In the city
last evening on his way cast. In conversa
tion witli a reporter for a local paper , Mr.
Adams said ho had been away from business
some weeks and knew nothing more of the re
cent railroad happenings than ho had learned
trom the papers , tlaving never been in the
Yellowstone country he had just spent
couple of weeks out there with his family
and was now on his way home.
'What do yon think will result from this
last hauling over of the Union 1'acilic by the
Investigating committee ? "
" 1 haven't any idea. Wo gave them ov < ry
opportunity to get all they wautnd , and they
made a most thorough and searching : invest !
gallon , 1 can't see that tlieio w.is nny need
of it. I huven't hcaid of their unearthing
anything which required explanation. "
"Do you mean Mr. Hiintingtou'H kind o :
explanation , Mr. Adams ? "
"No ; but as for that , although 1 don'tknov
anything about the Central Pacific , it costs
money to defend a road against an attack of
congress just as much as it does to defend 1
in court. There are legitimate costs and ex
penses in both cases. I am sure that since
1885 , the date when my acquaintance with
Union Pacific affairs began , the company has
been managed honestly and fairly. "
"iiow about the profits ot the deal with the
Kansas Pacific ? "
"Simply that men bought stock at Ope.
cent share and held It till It was worth more.
At the same time Atchlson stock was kicking
around Boston at thtt same ligure , and the
men who bought It then and held It have
made monov. The case was the same will
the Northwestern , Burlington , JJock Island ,
und other western railroad stocks. They
were as low as Kansas Pacitic stock once ,
but the growtli of the country has made them
valuable. Nothing worse was done In the
case of the Kansas and Union Pacific coin
panics than in the case of these other com1
panles. But the Union Pacific alone has
been picked out for criticism. "
"Do you mean to present any now plan1
before the next conuress for the payment o
thu Union Pacific's debt to tlio government-
"That will what the
depend on investiga
ting committee does. Tlio debt does not tall
due for ten years , and wo are now nicctinc
every obligation. Wo ask only that the gov
ernment will treat with us on a buslnesi
basis , not on a political one. If the govern
ment would deal with us as with other credItors -
Itors , or as creditors generally treat ttioL
debtors , wo would be satlsllod as things are ,
Tlio first mortage bondholders hold n claim
for S3.,000,000 ! against the road as does the
government , but they do not think it neces
sary tos orry us continually. They simply
say , 'If you don't pay that debt when It is
duo ten vcars hence , wo shall take the prop
erty. ' Why should the government toke
any different course ? "
"How dots the Inter-stato commerce law
eflVct the Union Pacific ? "
"Not seriously , 1 think , In any way. It
has Injured our California business a little ,
but will not materially effect our earnings. "

that the loans numbered about 175 , and the

loss. Thomas Emery Is quoted as having

that no ono of tlio Cincinnati creditors ot
Mr , Ives would lose anything , but all would

at an aggregate of seven , which won the
game by a margin of three. The WlchltRs'
run-getting occurred In the fourth and sixth ,
two tallies each , being retired In short order
