Their Hearts Set on tlie Siiii Dance. :i*ABB, Tex., Aug 4-The government .authoritiesand th(B Iowa' Indians have btien engaged in controversy "at Fort > Sill for some time. - It has grown out. of, .aheffort on the part of the Indian agent! to prevent the annual sun dance of that! tribe. His reason was that it demoralized the Indians and made them hard to control. They sent to Goodnight's ranch in the Texas Panhandle for a buffalo, and their slogan was "on with the dance." The agent was relentless and determined to stop the dance, at all! hazards bnt the Indians declared they would darice or fight. In order to en-force the order and prevent trouble two companies of soldiers were sent to. the reservation and everything: is quiet at present, though the Indians are sullen and say they will, dance. Texas Fever in Kansas. WiCHiTA.Kan., Aug. 4.-Texas fever: is : sprea ding - with alarming rapidity, among the cattle in Butler and Elk counties. Some weeks ago about 50,000 cattle were taken to these two counties and represented to be from Arizona. An investigation has shown that they where brought from the Pan Handle and Greer county, Texas, and this fact has greatly enraged the owners of native cattle. Two men wfere killed two days ago in a dispute over the matter and more bloodshed is almost certain. So far about one thousand head of cattle have died. .Burned to a Cinder. CracAGO, Aug. 4.-While 4-year-old Johnny Kruder was playing with matches in his father's barn, in the rear of 42tJ North street, he set fire to the hay, and like a fiash the bam was turned into a flaming furnace. Johnny was burned to a cinder. The fire spread to the : adjoining property, and before it was put out several dwellings were destroyed. Loss, $10,000; insurance about $5,000.

The House Elections Committee MajoriJ:y 'Report Til iLS OF FRAUDS AND MURDER And Kecominonds that Breclclnrtdge Be Sent Back to Arlcansas-The Tariff and lllvcr and Harbor Bills in tiie Senate- The House ProgruniiiMi, Washinqton, Aug, 4;-.The majority report of the house committee on elections upon the Oliiyton-Breckinridge contested election case, and the muraer of the republican cbnt'estarit, is completed and ready for submission to the house. No earnest attempt, the report says, to aid in bringing Clayton's murderers to justice was. ever made by the local authorities. Referring to the killing of the negro detective, who was investigating the bollot box theft, and of George Bently, a brother of O. T. Bently, who was suspected of being one of the thieves, it says George Bently at the time was negotiating with the Pink-ertons to give evidence and expose the guilty parties, when he w.ns saidto have been accidently shot by his brother. While therfe was no dii-ect evidence to incrimination in the killing of Bently .it was unfortunate, the report says, that these two killings.! occurred while the victims were about to {pve evidence to Pirikertons' detectives. Continuing,; the mnjority sa3'8: "No reasonable ex-! planation ofthe murder apiiears, except that some of ihe.: ballot box thieves, finding the taking of tes.tim.Qny progress-i ing, killed Colonel Clavtonto suppress the investigation! No other motive is possible." ,, "The.ne?�ssity," the, report says, "for the enactment of some laws which will prevent BaUot Box Stealing and niurder from c,onferring a prima facie title to a! seat in congress, is evident from the re-! suit of the contest. Had such laws been in force as; would have prevented the contestee f rom taking his seat with such a title, no one would hiave attempted to cohfiria such title by stealing the ballot box. Evidently ballot box stealing was looked upon as a joke; in- that commun-! ity, and the awful 'consequences that! have resulted: have appalled the, good] people at the:country. No doubt some; of these men would have been deterred from taking the first step in the crime; if they had realized that murder would! be the end. But they crossed theiri Rubicon, 'Breckinrldg'e.Oot the Sent; in congress,'aind one crime foirowediri'i the footsteps of the other. The least guilty of the criminals dare not expose the more guilty, lest the fate of Clayton should overtake them. That the nominee of a great political party should accept a certificate of election to the seat to which he was clearly not elected,and at the same time aid in the payment of a fine imposed upon another -violator of the law, and that such conduct should, not be met with anything but com-; mendation and approval by his followers, shows a real disregard of the prin-' ciples of proper government which "may' well make the future of the country be looked upon -with apprehausion. That men may be found lawless enough to commit these crimes is to be deplored; but when Men of High Character and standing complacently avail themselves of the fruits of such crime, and the control of the national house of representatives is made to turn upon such methods, it no longer remains a mere matter of local concern, but anses to the magnitude of a national calami-ity; The present case has attracted attention, not because it stands alone. as a startling and striking incident of dangers ahead to our iorm of govem-ment,;but because it appears to bo one of a very bad kind. In the old days of the code of honor, political antagonists often met face to face, and eye to eye and sought their adversaries' lives. This method of settling political differences has become obsolete, and we frequently congratulate ourselves upon The Improved Moral Tone of the later day and generation. But never before has a contest for a seat in, congress been terminated by the bullet of an assassin. It such methods are submitted to in silence; the party benefited by the crime of his partisans quietly and without dispute retaining the benefits of the death of his competitor,; anew element would be introduced into our form of goverdment." A resolution will accompany the report declaring the seat now held by Mr. Breckinridge vacant.
