For the Murder of Several White Men. mm puoai CHINA ASD A Japanese Town Nearly De- stroyed by Fire. A Constitutional Government in Full Operation. four Hanged. By Aftioclated Press.] MIBBOUI.A Dec. The greatcHt hanging which ever took place in the Northwest occurred this morn- ing, when Lala See, Pierre Paul, Ant- ley nnd PaHcale, four Indian murder- era, were huuged at the Courthouse here. All died game. Pierre Panl and Antler smilingly bid their friends Sood-byo. Twenty minutes after the trap wan sprung all were dead, their necks being broken. The crirnea for which the lour In- cliuu were hanged were most cowardly and brutal. Puscule killed a prospec- tor named J. M. Dunn in the soring of 1889, near Demersville. Dunn traded horses with him, and when be refused to trade back the Indian shot him, taking what money he had. He then hid the body in the brush, where it was discovered some months later by another Indian, io whom Pascale admitted the crime. The body was identified by by the clothing, and 1'uHcule was arrested. Antley's crime was the participation in the murder of three white prospec- tors, McDonald, Seely and Thompson, in the fall of 1887, at Wolf Creek, near Tobacco Plains. The prospectors were surprised at their camp fire by a party of six Kootenai Indians, and were murdered in cold blood. Two of the Indians were captured soon after and lynched by the people of Demersville. Antley remained at large until last summer. Lala See and Pierre Paul killed two white men, names unknown, in Aug- ust, 1887, and throw the bodies into Jack river, where they were found by a half-breed woman, who was cau- tioned by the murderers to say nothing about the bodies. She notified the authorities, and the murderers were arrested last summer. These murders were unprovoked. The four prisoners were tried and convicted before Judge Marshall at MisHOula last fall. They protested their innocence be- fore dying. The bodies will be taken to St. Ignatius, Missouri, for burial. Several prominent chiefs were in at- tendance at the execution, but there was no protestations or demonstra- tions on their part, or from members of the tribe, as hud been anticipated. IMrd from A Horrible Crime. By Associated Press.] SiiKKiii'ooKK Dec. 19. Sheriff Webb died suddenly of heart disease at this morning. The excitement attending the execution of Re mi Montague was probably the cause. The death of the Sheriff de- layed the execution butafew minutes. La Montague was hanged at o'clock. The crime for which La Montagne suffered an execution was an abomin- able one. In July, 1888, he went to the house of his brother-in-law, Napol- eon Michel, and enticed him to the door, and shot him twice, cut his throat, slashed his body, dragged him back into the house and set it on fire. The wounded man dragged himself from the flames badly scorched, but died after a few weeks. The murderer's sister Leda was an unusually handsome Frrench-Cana dian girl of 20 years. The wife of the victim was arrested for complicity in the crime, but the brother escaped It came out at the trial that Leda and her brother have been living in incest. She was acquitted, the fact that she was enciente evidently having in- fluenced the jury. A large reward was offered the murderer, and he was finally captured. absconded and was recaptured in Boston, having been extradited on a charge of arson. At her brrother's trial she refused to testify, and was sent to jail tor a year. Her brother was convicted and hanged as above. _ By Cable and Associated PARIS, Dec.

JEWS PA PER I Lateat Chlarse Special to GAZETTE.] SAM FRANCISCO, Dec. 19. The steamship Belgic arrived this morning bringing Chinese to November 20th, and Japanese advices to Decem- ber 3d. The deaths resulting from the powder explosion at Taiping were more than was at first estimated, it being stated that eight hundred cof- fins had been taken out of the city, and yet there were not enough to bury the dead. A Chinaman lighting his pipe while repairing the toot of the powder mill is said to have caused the catastrophe. The British barkentine Guiding Star was drawn ashore in Sunda on the 29th ult., and found to be a total wreck. The crew was saved. Tseng Kno Chung, Viceroy at Nan- king, and uncle of the late Marquis Tseng, is dead. A number of villagers belonging to Feng district, near Shangai, in March '89 attacked and burned to death four- teen soldiers belonging to the Pre- ventitive Service, who had seized a lot of salt believed to have been smuggled. The villagers, undar mis- apprehension, took the officers for thieves, and on discovering their mis- take burned the senseless bodies to prevent a disclosure of the occurrence. The facts coining to the attention of the authorities they have now decreed that the ringleader shall be decapi- tated and the head exposed at the scene of the crime. As he has already committed suicide by drowning the corpse will be exhumed and dismem- bered. Four others were sentenced to be strangled, but of these two are dead. Four others are sentenced to one hundred blows each, and perpet- ual banishment. The town of Yotcosuka, Japan, was almost entirely destroyed by fire on November 30th. Three persons were burned to death and eight seriously injured. The opening of the Diet, the first. constitutional legislative body ever assembled in Japan, took place on Saturday, November 29th. All traffic had been suspended in the capital, and the day was given up to celebrat- ing. The Emperor and cortege were greeted on their arrival at the legisla- tive hall with a salute of one hundred and one guns. The ceremonies were brief, the Emperor reading a short address in which he expressed the hope that all institutions relating to the internal administration of the Empire might be continued and ex- tended in order to obtain good results from the working of the constitution, and thereby manifest in the future, at home and abroad, the glory of the Empire and the loyal and enterprising character of the Japanese people. The Emperor held it essential that the military and naval defenses of the country be perfected and made an ob- ject of gradual attainment. Mr. Na- kashima Nobuyuki and Mr. Tsunda Mamichi, who received the highest votes for the offices in question, were appointed by the Emperor to the Pres- idency and Vice Presidency of the House of Representatives. The Pres- ident belongs to the Constitutional Radical party, and the Vice President to the Daiscikai party. The Liberals made no special effort to elect their candidate, but watched the action of the other parties. The Conservatives voted with the Radicals. The only disturbance which took place at the time of the opening of the Diet was an attack made by the Soshi or students on the Russian Legislation. Mme. Scheritcfi, wife ot the Russian Minis- ter, and the ladies of the Legation were struck by the stones thrown by the Soshi who attempted to force their way into the Legation, but were re- pelled by the attendants who retali- ated with a shower of tiles. The So- shi were -epulued and some twenty were injured. A number of employes of the Legation were also hurt. All the windows of the, building were smashed. The cause of the attack is said to be the fact that the Emperor bowed to the ladies of the Legation in passing.

At Sligo to-day Lalor, the leader ol a band of moonlighters, waa sentenced to penal service for life. Other pris- oners were sentenced to various terms of imprisonment, ranging from one to ten years. A branch of the National League on the Island of Jersey has adopted reso- lutions against Parnell. LONDON, Dec. are received in this city from Michael DaviU stating that the injuries sus- tained by Parnell at Castle Conaera were inflicted by women and girls, who pelted him with flour and mud.

Few Skirmishes With Settlers and Troops. COS6RESSIOM PROCEKMMGS. Senator Stanford Makes a Lengthy Talk The Ensrllsh People Talk of a Tariff on Winos. The Indian War. By Associated Press.] MINNEAPOLIS, Dec. 19. A Rapid City, S. D., special says the reports of an engagement between the troops and Indians at Daly's ranch and other points are false. There have been three skirmishes between Colonel M. H. Day's com- mand of settlers and cowboys, num- bering fifty men, and the Indians. The last one, on Tuesday, was a hot one. The Indians attempted to burn the haystacks at Daly's ranch, but were driven off by Colonel Day and ten men. A band of 150 hostilea are moving westward fifty miles north of Rapid ity, in Butte county. Eighty men of the Ninth Cavalry and sixty Chey- enne scouts have been sent after them. DENVER, Dec. special courier at rived early this morning from the camp on the Cheyenne river on his way to Rapid City. He says that from twenty to thirty ranchers rode into camp to-day. All agree that the In- dians are augmenting their forces and growing bolder hourly. It was ascer- tained early this morning that the deserted ranch and outlying buildings of a man named Wilson were burned to the ground last night, having first been looted. Hon. M. H. Day, aide-de-camp to Governor Mellette, reports that, be- sides seventy tepees between Battle and Spring rivers, he saw a large band further down the Cheyenne river. He thinks they nnrnhnr at Wot 300, and tie estimates they had head of tiorses and a large number of cattle with them, most of which had been stolen. Early this morning General Carr sent Captain Stanton of the Sixth Cavalry with his troop, numbering about sixty men, to scout and look out for the Indiana in the Bad Lands. Three heliograph stations were estab- in the camp, one on the top of a high bluff, and one which fol- lowed up as nearly as practicable Cap- tain Stanton's command. The sol- diers from the heliograph stations re- ported to General Carr that Captain Stanton WAS in an engagement with the Indians. General Carr gave or- ders for Lieutenant Scott and a troop to go to his assistance. Later Captain Stanton and the other troops returned. It is learned he had a skirmish with a large party of Indians heading for the Bad Lands. Shots were exchanged in qnite a lively manner for some time, when the Indians escaped to the Bad Lands. Captain Stanton followed them for some time, but, fearing an ambush, finally withdrew his troops and returned to camp. PI'EBBE (S. Dec. Morris, a storekeeper at Cheyenne City, near the mouth of Cherry creek, has just arrived. He says the entire population of twenty families and also a number of friendly Indians have left there, some going to Fort Ben- nett, some to Oak Saud and others to Pierre. He says that just before leav- ing there night before lost twenty In- dians from Sitting Bull's band arrived and held a big council with the Cherry Creek Indians to see whether they should fight or not. They were joined after the council by over 150 Chey- ennes, and all started for the Bad Lands. Morris says daring the time the refugees were getting away to the Bad Lands sharp firing was heard be- tween the Indian police and the hoe- tiles, and a battle was no doubt fought, but as the settlers made baste to reach the towns, they can give no farther particulars. As troops were ordered to that point yesterday, it is believed the hostiles were routed and captured. Morris says Sitting Bull's Indians are well armed, and are de- mined to avenge Bull's death.

In the Sen- ate to-day, after routine business, Stanford made a speech on his bill to increase the circulating medium. He said money was the most im- portant factor of the business relations of the country. There was a limit to the quantity of gold and silver metals, and that limit could not bo exceeded by any effort on the part of the Gov- ernment. On the sufficiency of money depended very largely the industries of the country. An illustration of its importance to be found in the present depressed finajidul condition. Never was the country more prosper- ous, yet, owing to a want of money, upon a slight disturbance of credit, there waa distress over the land, and, so general waa -the uneosines and ap- prehension that money which ought to be in circulation is being hoarded. The bill he was now considering pro- posed that the Gevernment issue a supply of money equal substantially to the general demand, and to erect a standard by which the Government might determine up to the usual value of 2 per cent, what was the amount needed. Toe money (legal tender notes) would be issued under the pro- visionsof the bill upon unimpeachable and practically inexhaustible security, and its supply was to be ascertained and determined by a rate which the borrower could afford to pay. Two per cent, was the amount to be paid to the Government for n loan of its money, and so long us the money is worth more than 2 per cent., the se- curity being practically money would always be borYowod from the Government, and thus dis- charge its duty and supply the general want. The principle of the Govern- ment loaning money is fully estab- lished by the advance it now bad made upon its own bonds, which, while entirely good between the banker and the Government, and strengthened the security of the bill-holder, rested at last upon the authority of the Gov- ernment. At the conclusion of Stanford's speech the bill was referred to the Committee on Finance. The Senate then took up the Print- ing Deficiency bill, on which some discussion took place reflecting on the House for the inadequacy of the reg- ular appropriation bills, thus necessi- tating frequent deficiency bills. The Dill passed. Gray introduced an amendment to the pending Election bill, which strikes out the provision for a perma- nent annual appropriation for the compensation of Supervisors, and takes from those officers the power to interfere with the returns. HOUSE. Morse of Massachusetts introduced for reference a bill providing that no exhibition or exposition for which an appropriation has been made by Con- shall be opened on Sunday.

The 'Bradford Chamber of Commerce has adopted a resolution favoring the imposition by the Government of a discriminating duty on French wines. This action was recommended for the purpose of retaliation against France for duties on English products established by the new Anglo-French commercial treaty. The adoption of such a resolu- tion is considered of special signifi- cance, as it is the first deliverance by that body for forty years looking in any degree toward a protection policy.

By Associated Press.] YOBK, Dec. Rev. Bishop Monogne of Sacramento, Cul., arrived on the steamship Majesty. Biabop Monogne was born in Killcen- ney, Ireland, and on bis way borne after spending weeks traveling over Ireland. Speaking of Parnell and the present Irish situation, the Bishop says: "At the present timo the people of Ireland ara so greatly esoited they have a difficulty iu view- ing the situation wisely. However, there can be no doubt that tt-e lead- ing paople of Ireland convinced that Parnell is making ijroat mis- take in maintaining bis position in the face of the fact that if is wore than likely he nonld, by a temporary re- tirement, home rale for Ireland in a short time. To-day the ardent well wishers tied workers for Ireland's catibe believe Parnell is no longer working for the wellfare of his coun- try. They believe Parnell now mak- ing his fight for Parnell, and not for home rule. He has taken advantage of the prejudices of the Irish people against England, and IB now deliber- ately postponing a further advance- ment of the cause for which he so long and honestly labored. His fight to-day is to be a greater man than Gladstone. He refuses to perform a great act of patKotintn by withdrawing, and thereby giving a chance for the Irish meinberw to re- main intact, and acting with the Lib- erals, to confer upon Ireland the longed-for boon of homo role. The people of Ireland could not have been weaned from Purnell had it not his exposure in the divurea court. In that case he prom wed to come forth from a public trial un- Htuined, and left .many of the very best Irish elements in doubt as to the issue, but they trusted him and believed him innocent. Then instead of clearing himself he appeared neither personally or by counsel, and by thus confessing himself guilty, he disappointed his most ardent friends. It is this admission of guilt which loci so many supporters of home rule to declare against Parnell. The next general election will show thor- oughly he is repudiated." A. Pretty Bad Vailoro.
