A prominent nnd tnoroughly reliable cltl-
ion of Omaha g , vo to a Bzi : reporter yester
day morning n vivid description ot tha fight
nt tba town of Suggs , _ Wyo. , on last Friday
night between nbout forty troopers belong
ing to tha Ninth cavalry nud n ganp ot cowboys -
' boys , railroad men and gamblers. The gen
tleman referred to was In Suggs at the time
of the bnltlo and realized that ho was In any
thing but a safe and peaceful locality. His
itory runs liku this :
"Tho'tovyn of Suggs Is composed of n few
lei ? houses and nbout a hunilro.t touts H lj
it proiont the rendezvous for the toughs nnd
-roueh characters of the whole "northern end
Df tlio ttatd of Wyoming. When It was
known that the Utiltod States troops were
.frotng.to establish a summer camp near Suggs
lovornl of thosa border roustabouts xvcru
heard to romarlc that Iho black devils had
boon rnnnlnir Crawford to suit themselves
but they fraeanlng the colored troops ] would
loon find out that they could not run Suu'Rs.
'Tbo troops ot the is I nth cavalry arrived
last week and established a camp about thrco
miles outsldo of the straggling frontier
rlllago. On Friday night of last 'wook
ibout forty of tbo troopers loft camp
ind went down to the town
to have n tlmo. The fooling of
hostility toward Iho soldiers needed only
the slightest amount of fric'.ion to create
open warfare , and the spark was soon fur-
Dished. I was In uamp on the opposite-side
of Powder river about ono hundred yards
from the center of the village whcro tbo
light occurred. ' Whllo I dla not see the
ictual beginning ot the disturbance I was
told ovary detail the next morning by those
who were engaged In tbo fight.
A Trooper 1'lnoit for Western Glory.
"As I learned It the fracas was begun by
Dno of tha troopers firing his gun In the nir ,
simply to indlcato that ha was n bad man
and it would not be safe to cross his track.
Thov opened lira on the soldiers from all
Bides ana in the twinkling of nn eye tiia main
ttroatof the place was turned into a baltlo
field.
"I think I heard the very first shot. I was
Bitting In the door of my tent Just about to
ratlro. It wns the first battle 1 ever heard ,
and I wish to remark that In the next ono 1
would llko to bo u little farther away from
the scene of the conflict. The shots followed
each other very rapidly. 1 think 500 shots
must have bcon 11 red in less than fifteen
minutes. I could hear a few voice' , anil It
was soon evident that ono party was on tha
run.
run."Tho ferry wns shut down for the night
nnd I could not got across tha river until
morning to sea what , the fatalities hud
amounted to. When 1 wont over nbout 7 o'clock
Saturday morning I found tho. town sur
rounded by troops aud everybody tnlking
about the Battle ot the previous night. They
showed mo the place where ono of tha troopers
ors hud been f > hot doud and u hero ho lay for
Eomo time , leaving a pool ot blood. Tno re
sults of the engagement , so far as I could
learn , wcro two'soldiors lulled , about n dozen
wounded aud several of the citizens , cow
boys and toughs suffering from slight wounds
and scratches.
The Troops Utterly Iloutod.
"It seems that the troopers became panic-
stricken alter tbo first volley and conclud
ing that they were outnumbered they made a
break for the open country. The cowboys
and gum biers followed them with a deadly
tire and drove them holtor-skoltcr out
of the town. 'Tbo colored men mada a d.ish
down between a long wooden shed and n large
tent and fell over a guy rope. Hare they lust
nboul fifteen or twenty guns. They scram
bled to their fcot und ran on.
"Shortly attar tbo bntllo the ambulance
arrived from the camp of the troopors. Tno
citizens wcro ready to continuo the tight if
necessary , una made the conductor ot tbo
ambulance ibrow up his bunds. Ha in
formed the belligerents that bo had coino on
a message of peace simply to talco care ot tbo
dead and wounded. They allowed the ambu
lance to proceed with the work of caring for
v thu slain.
slain.Not
Not a Vurt of the Cnttlo War.
' This ulsturbanco.lt should bo understood ,
has very Jlttlo to da with the rustler difll-
uulty."Tliejcowboys nnd residents of Sucg's
are acoply prejudiced acainst the colored tol-
tlicrs , .and. stories had been circulated all
through that country about tbn ruffianly , bush-
ivhacktpi ; character of the Ninth cavalry.
This created an Intense hatred among nearly
ill classes up there nzalnut the soldiers and
put tlilncs in roadlnots for the light. As I
tald before , it Is a tough town. It i n typi
cal rendezvous for frontier toughs und hard
characters of both sexes.
"Tila next morning after the battle the
commanding officer assured the people
that there would bo no moro trouble ,
nnd U > guard against a second outbrcaic ho
placqd a ttrong guard ot troops nbout the
place. When I loft uverythlne , on the sur-
lace at least , was perfectly scrono. Some ot
the door.H and windows of ttio few buildings
In town-were completely riddled. I saw ono
window with six bullet holes in It. Savcral
of tha citizens bad holes shot through their
hats , chips cut off tbolr ears and In divers
wrtvs exhibited evidences of having boon
unong the leaden hail. "

On Wednesday night sorao of the soldiers
ivcra in town , and when in a saloon some
jno , whoio name could not bo learned , made
DUO of the ' sol'llers hold up his bauds by
placing a gun near his head. After
the gun-play thu soldiers called up to
I bo bar all in the houiu anil

Inltato some of the soldiers. On Friday
eight souio of thorn atola through tha gm > ids ,
lad lu fact Induced ono ot the guardi to pa

IDiitO o'clock. There were somewhere between -
tween lltty und * uvonty-Hvo of thu ooMiem.

On arriving near the west end of town
tin' ; , halted nnil , kneollnir in the middle ot
Iho street , fired In ihu air about eight or ten
ihots. Then It is thought someone tired nt
Ibom ; at least , ihe firing became general nt
Diii'O. The soldiers lay iUt i'n the ground
alter Ihu second volley und shot In about
every direction , as they were being II red
upon from several points. It teen became
lee hot for them lu their exposed position , so
they urnso and lied bouth through an tinlln-
Uhnd born , tonio between buildings and

Tba squad was In charge ot a sergeant ,
Who U in chains at tbo cauip aud nil the

During the flpht preat excitement pre
vailed , women and children scroctmine , for
the bullets were Hying In every direction ,
crashing through tents Into buds which had
just been vacated. Only ono citizen , a Mr.
Bennett , was wounded \\lth a slight bullet
wound In the right arm. It seems almost n
mliaclothnt thcro wcro not some ono killed ,
for three-fourths ot Iho pcoplo llvo In tents.
Prompt Artlon of Iho Officers ,
The commander of the troops , on hearing
tha shouting , thought the cattlemen and
rustlers were having a fight , nnd as soon as
possible called out the troop * , anil then ho
discovered some of his men were cone , and
came to town to help the citizens us soon ns
possible. On arriving and finding tbo trou
ble had been with sotnb ot his scldlcrs , ho
wns very much surprised. Wnen our people
found out that Iho troopers had not returned
when the command left camp much fear wns
frit that they might return nnd the attsck bo
renewed. The captain said 'ho would see
that thov did not got into town any
more. He stationed troops nround town
until daylight , und then ovcry-
ono was"notillcd that all was
safo. The captain toou great pains
to Inform the women nnd children that they
uould bo perfectly safe to come out of the
caves and cellars'wherii they hud gene as
noon ns the light rcasod , thinking it might
be renewed nt any tlmo.
The trouble had uo connection with the
jattlo trouble In the state whatever. The
round-ups are going on in tbo even tenor ot
their way , nnd thcro Is no apprehensions ot
any trouble between the cattlu owners und
bo so-called rustlers ut all.

GREEK AIiT'3 ' INFLUENCE.
Dr. Unrypu Kipatlntc * on tlio Achievement *
of Tim t Wonderful llkco. :
Hov. Dr. Duryoa delivered a Very Interest
ing lecture on Qrcck art to a small audience
nt the Llnmger gallery last over.lnir.
The speaker said that ho had n practical
object In delivering the lecture. Ho wished
to assist in n'vakonlng an Interest that would
lead men of moans to come to the assistance
ot the Art association mid lenu their means
to the development of the school of art In
this city.
Ho divided the history of Greek art Into
thrco periods , the Ionian , the Dorian and
the Archiuin. The Greeks passed the first
period ot their development In Asia Minor
and the second after they had settled on the
shores of tboEscan sex After the tlmo of
Alexander the Great the Greeks had bo-
rome a scattered race. They were no longer
powerful In their Own land , but their
culture predominated In Constantinople ,
In Antloch and In Alexandria , and even as
outcasts from their 'own country they did
their most magnificent work for the world.
The inscription over the head of the Cruci
fied Redeemer was xvrltton In three lan
guages , the Hebrew , .tho Greek and the
Latin , and from tboso thrco people the
world had learned nearly nil that was worth
knowing. Tbo Hebrews taught mankind re
ligion , the Greeks philosophy , art ana literature
'
ture , and tbo Uoma'us/organlzatiun , govern
ment and law. .
The Greeks were mso imbund with re
ligious Ideas and high moral principles. The
grandest achievement Of Greek architecture
was a tomnlo , and of tbolr statuary the
statue of a God. ThoGrccuRdtd not excel
in painting , because they did not know how
to express religious thought and sentiment on
canvas. Antnropo' Morphlsm was the
chief element of their .art. They ulmed at
physical perfection In their life and their
statues represented men of perfect physique.
. The speaker dwelfrat some length on the
superiority of the Grecian over the present
age , in that less attention was paid to dis
play and more to the development of tbo
race- . Among the remains of Grecian archi
tecture were found many temples , but no
palaces. Tbo homes , of the wealthiest
Greeks wore simplerthan those of the
skilled worklngmon of tbo present day.
They put tbolr money into those things
which belonged to all allko Instead of devoting -
voting it J self-uggrandizoincnt.
"When wo grow wealthy in this ago , " said
the SDoakor , "wo Duild-a line bouso at which
people may look and envy our luxury. Then
wo have to have flnoinories and then car
riages , one in which W slt facing the horses
and another in wblcu VMTO ride backwards.
And then wo have to have u Hunkoy to look
ono way and two flunkeys to look the other
wnv. and thus wo njasnuerado through the
streets looking as conventional as the oas-
rollof on'nn Egyptian , pyramid. If such
nn outfit as that ihad appeared in
Groove , the people would have thrown It
into the yEzoan sea. The history of Greek
art teaches us to devote loss to display and
mnro to tnoso things wtlah develop and ennoble -
noble humanity. "
Dr. Durycii'was ' requested to repeat his
lecture at a future datu , when it is hoped a
larger audleu'co will borprosont.

DEB : In this day of a s Delations anil funds
It seams superfluous to'.ty and suggest any
thing now , but I have an Idea and would
like to see a discussions i to Its feasibility.
It is this :
Suppose nay 100 fam lies agree to pay f I
per mouth , or $12 poryufr , each for medical
udvlco. With this sum the service * ot a
competent physician c uld bo secured to
attend to all calls ot moi bors ot the associa
tion. This sum U nd , larger than almost any
family of two pays yearly ia doctor's bills ,
aud much smaller jthan many pay.
Then the doctor , being paid a stated sum ,
would bo Interested-in Keeping hit clients
well , and to that end could visit thorn occa
sionally and detect Incipient dlseiuos and
counsel correct niodos of life , and thereby
keep bis patients In better health than
under tbo present method , where a charge of
j Is made for every visit.
Another advantage would bo that the bill
would bo paid largely whllo the patients
worn In good heallh.aoa ° jnus relieve them
of the worry of the bill avtboond of a period
of ylcKiiois. It would ilso encourage the
doctor to greater efforts , as his pay would bo
comparatively sure. * ;
Tbero need bo no paid ofllcors of tbo
association , as tbo doctor coula easily keep
the list. It might be well to omit from hi *
duties cases or obstdlrlc0 , and grade tha too
according to ilta of family. I would like to
hear from fomo ot your roadora ou this
plan , Your * respectfully. ,

Secretary Fun tor Ileconinipiiils Now I.pgls-
lilt ion for Thulr llctti-r Distribution.
\VASIIIXOTOX , , D. C. , Juno lil ) . Secretary
Foster bus sent a letter to the souata recom
mending that the 'provisions of the act ot
JnnoS , 18" : ! , bo extended to treasury notes
authorized by the act of Juno 14 , 1S93 , and
the act approved July 14 , ISi'O. ' There have
boon Issucddn payment for silver bullion
purchased , as shown by tbo statement pub
lished Juno 1. ISlti , treasury uotcs in the
amount of J'JT,3ytS.h ( > . It has been the
policy of tins department to encourage the
general dlutrloutlon of thcso treasury notes
by issuing them in the smaller denominations
as far RS possible. In pursuance of this
pollry and in order that thcro might bo no
ground for discriminating against them , ray
predecessor directed that the outstanding
treasury nolcn bo treated in all respects the
same as the United States notes. Among
Iho provisions of law affecting the latter is
ono contained In the act of Juno 8 , 187J ,
which , authorized their receipt ou deposit
without Interest from national banking as
sociations In sums of not less than $10,000 ,
aud tha issua therefor ot csrtillcntea of de
posit In denominations not loss than g. > ,000.
Soon after tba issue of treasury notes it was
found that their distribution In nraall denom
inations would bo facilitated by extending
to tbom the provisions of the netof Juno S ,
1872. This was accordingly douo
after consultation with the proper
officers of the department , who
wcro of the opinion that such
action was not In conflict with any statutes.
In vlow of the fact , however , that the act of
July 14 , 1890 , did not specifically provlao for
the receipt ot treasury notes In this manner ,
I doomed it advisable , when my attention
was called to the matter , tn consult the at
torney general on the subject , and that offi
cer , under data of February ir > .16U2lnformod
rae that In bit opinion such treasury notes
are not so receivable. As this opinion was
at variance with that under which the de
partment bad acted , I at last thought advis
able , alter careful consideration , to discon
tinue the receipt of treasury notes as spoclal
deposits aud refer the subject to congress for
such action as It may deem proper.
At this time there uro uo treasury notes of
IS'JJ in the department held as special de
posits. . This condition is the rciull of stops
which were taken as soon as the conclusion
above indicated was reached. As the crop
moving period Is near at band I thought that
the continued issue of the smaller denomina
tions of these notes will , for the present , bo
acceptable aud will not bo Immediately
checked by the discontinuance of tholr re
ceipt as spoclal deposits ; but as soon us the
return ( low of money to the business centers
is established the addition of now currency
In small denominations , without the privi
lege of special deposits heretofore allowed ,
will prove embarrassing alike to the'public
aud the department ana ! , in my ononion , will
eventually result in an Increase in the pro
portion 01 notes of largo denominations. En
tertaining this view , and being desirous of
furnishing to the people for their every-day
use an adequate supply of such denomina
tions of money as they may demand , I do not.
hesitate to roco.nmsnd that the provisions ot
the act of JuneS , 187 ; ! , bo extended by appro
priate legislation to the treasury notes au-
thoriiod by the act of July 14 , IS'JO.
