The present Ute Indian outbreak grows esc of the dissatisfaction felt by many Utea the settlement of the difficulties several years ago. Prior to 1S79 a hue and cry was raised by Colorado settlers against the Uces. who then held some of the finest lands west of the mocassins. Settlers wanted the land. so they appealed to congress and congress passed the bill providing for a treaty. The TTtes were given choice of certain laTd-i in southern Utah, and as a bonus to induce to accept were granted certain annui- ties. Chief Colorow was one of the first to express dissatisfaction, at being driven from their fine lands at the point of the bayonet iato Utah, upon an arid desert.

"ST., Aug. F. Barren, oae of the best known hotel men in Sew England died to-day, aged seventy-five yearn. Snatch's team were -well posted on their Captain's tactics, and, fol- lowing his examples, tried to snatch bases which they conld not make, being caught eTery time by the tvatchfnl eyes of Mr. Hutchison's well trained men. Hutchison's nine played remarfca hly well together, and won the game solely by not seeking indi- vidual recognition- On the other side there seemed to be a lack of discipline and a general inclination for every man to play for himself. The game "was characterized by excellent batting and fielding on the part of the Red Stockings and a display of fair fielding on the part of the White Stockings. For the Reds Low Price did good work as pitcher. The ever popular Captain Hutchison was np to his old form as first base, and his trusty Lieutenant Qnality contributed his nsnal share towards winning a game. He never goes back on his captain. Kurtesy, the Thatcher, was in splen- did shape, and missed nothing. All the rest of the team played as though they intended to win, 'Little can be said of the Whites, as none of them played remarkably well. Stiff Price was pitcher for the first inning, hat efrer witness yesterday afternoon. These were disobedience obtusensss, the primary causes of tha slaughter at the culvert near here Tfaurday morning. Had Foreman Timothy Coughlan obeyed the instructions received from his superior offi'-er, end had some of the men. one of them in particular, who saw Ughis on the railroad track for hour after hour on Wednesday night before the ill-fated excur- sion train along, exerted themselves to the extent of a two mile ride ou a hand-car, the catastrophe which hug horrified the civ- ilized world would never have occurred. The inquiry took place in the public school building- Several residents of Piper City saw a light burning on the railroad track toward Chatsworth on tha night of the acci- dent, but made no effort to investigate the cause. Joseph Morris, a farmer, living half a. mile south of the culvert, swore that he sow two or three of the section men firing the grass in prosimicy to the bridge just be- fore dark on Wednesday afternoon. After dark he saw a blaze in that direction big enough to make niai think that a building' was on fire. His testimony was corrob- orated by other farmers. The jury is in session, but is delay in making out a verdict. The jury is agreed in fcang the immediate Jblame on Foreman Coughlan, but a divided, however, on the cuestion cf censuring the company. Some of the members think that because of hard luck for many years il would be rather se- vere to censure the management, which has been putting the road on its fees and spend- ing money to improve its condition. Others insist on censuring the practice of running double-headers. The jury is almost wholly composed of farmers. The company's offi- cers at Peoria. will make tip the list of the dead and send it to the jury, and the docu- ment cannot reach Chatsworth before noon. A verdict will, of course, ba delayed until then. Coroner Long yesterday demanded posses- sion of the gold watch found by Farmer Broadhead in ths ashes of the wreck. Mr. Broadhead ref to give it up. Last even- ing Jlr. Stevens, attorney for the road, ad- vised that a subpcena be issued, and if Mr. Broadhead failed to give it Tip that he be ar- rested for larceny. Other parties who car- ried away valuable articles for relics will be looked afser. PENNSYLVANIA REPUBLICANS. Proceedings of the State Convention, at Pa., Aug. IS. The Repub- lican state convention was devoid of much interest, as the nominations were practically made last evening. The attendance was slim, the 204 delegates constituting more than 'half Ko political body has ever con- vened here with so little friction, ihe dele- gates uncomplainingly submitting to the program of the leaders. There was a no- ticable absence of prominent Republican politicians. "Walter Lyon, of Allegheny, "was elected temporary chairman. He made a brief speech urging upon tha convention the im- portance of the cornpaign of this year be- cause of the effect it will have on tha strug- gle for the presidency next year. He trusted the platform would have no uncertain sound on the great issues of the day. The usual com- mittees were appointed, excepting a com- mittee en credentials, as there were no contests. Adj. Gen. Hastings was elected perman- ent chairman. In his address he predicted that after the nominations the Republicans would advance to tha skirmish line of the great battle of 1SSS, and So vembeirs victory would notify other states that Pennsylvania was not satisfied with tha present national administration. After Eastings' speech W. E. Hart, of Harrisburg, was" nominated for state treas- urer, and Henry "W. "Williams, Tioga, was nominated for supreme court jndga Thomas V. Coopar was re-elected state chairman, after .which the convention ad- journed sine dia "W. C. DePanw's "Will to Be Contested. Ssw ALBAXT, Ind., Aug.

Blow took his place 2nd met with a similar fate, and Staff pitched the remainder of the game- The Whites were duck-egged for five innings consecutively. Tbe Reds scored ten rnns In the first in- ning- In the third they got'two, bat failed to score again until the seventh Inaing when they secured three more. On the eighth inning they added two more by a base on balls and z home run. They won by 10 runs and an inning to spare.

The passenger train reached on time with a. heavy load, and the conductor had not finished collecting fares, consequently was hurried, and instead of reading his orders closely, which him to wait for two freight trains, he asked the statioa agent if the train on the side track was the one he.
