Scho- field yesterday received a dispatch from General Brooke, stating- that forty lodges of Indians have left the Royebud camp sines they movud across white river to the edge of the Bad Linds. There are strong signs, he says, of dis- integration among the ladians in camp, they being abourevenly divided as to whether they shall return to the agency or not From all that General Brooke can learn about their desires, ho says he is convinced that a majority of them want to come in. War Department offi- cials are much gratified with Goiifral Brooke's dispatch and look for a speedy settlement of the Indian troubles. The following memorial, received by the President, has been referred to the Acting Commissioner of Indinn Affairs: KOSEBL'1> A'-.ENr-y. Nov fi. To the Great Kuther.

Assistant Commissioner Belt in a letter to Secre- tary Noble, says that tho law does not promise the Indians "food just like sol- but only a ration of beef, flour, bacon, coffee, sugar and beans, or such other articles in lieu thereof as the Com- missioner of Indian Affairs may order. In reply to the charges that the Indiana signed aa agreement that rations would not be reduceU and th.ic the supoly was reduced pounds and that those signing the agreement felt imposed upon. Mr. Bolt says: "Tho Indians re- ceived rations to the full amount war- ranted by the appropriations made by Congress." In regard to tho complaint made by General Brooke that tho Indians did not get the additional supply of baef, Mr. Belt says that owing to the drought of last summer and the scarcity of grazing on tho reservation, the cattle delivered under contracts in October last will no doubt shrink considerably during the coming winter, when severe weather prevails and the range grazing is scarce.

C., from the American Anti- Monopoly League, than addressed the convention, each speaking for half an hour. Their remarks were principally directed in favor of a closer bond be- tween all national organizations of this character, but against consolidation. They also advised the National Alliance to stand by its St. Louis platform, to take the lead in any national political movement which might grow out of it, and asserted that other organizations would follow. A nurabar of Kansas delegates are working upon a call for a national' con- vention to form a new party, the date neiii'7 fixed on Februirv 12, !S91, and the place Delegates from tbe N'atioml AlHanca and all other national organisation-; in sympa- thy with it, or indorse the St. i Louis platform, as well as the editors of the "reform preys'" throughout the coun- try, will be invited to take part in the j convention. new party to be j formed would doubtless work on the same lines as the People's party ia Kan- sas, that is, reajunco all affiliation with the old po'nical parties and place a na- ket o! its own in the field. This call wh.-n Completed will undoubt- edly be projrn.od to the National Alli- ance for its indorsement. Somo of the men in the movement, however, are not zonvinced that this course will be wise or politic. Wild Freight Train Crashes au impress.

Deo. silver coin- ago quBbtioa aad tho Federal Elections bill have become- entangled in a pecu- liar way days, with the result that, tho Elections bill may be sacrified to fi-ea coinage. It has boea whispered about on tue floor of the Sen- ate for two davs that Senator Vest, act- ing on bebaif of tho Democrats in the Senate, inton led to offpr a free coinage bill as a substitute for tho Elections bill when the tim.j should come for taking a final voto. Iln idea is that tbe ad- vocates of frpp silver on t ie Republi -an side of the chamber will vote for free coinage, even at the risk of sacrificing the Elections bill, if they are broughi to the point of choosing between these measures. Inquiries made among the free silvei men on tho Republican side show that some, at loast, of these men will cast tbeir vote for a free coinage bill if it ig offered as a substitute for the Elections bill. _______________ OPEUA HOUSE BUttNED.

WASIIIXOTON, Dec. inquiry of tho Census Office into mortgage indebt- edness is nearly completed. The report will be very interesting and valuable. Out of nearly counties only ten re- main at the present, time incomplete, tho mortgages for ten years having been abstracted from the records. A total of something over in mort- gages has been found, tho largest uura- ber in the Western States. Relatively speaking, the Southern States were found to be much freer from those in- oumbrancos than tho Northern. An ex- ception to this is noted in the newly developed manufacturing districts of Alabama. Tennessee and Georgia. In districts like that of Birmingham the mortgage indebtedness is large, but ninety per cent, of it has been contracted for purchase money, plants, lands, eta PIDX'T SYNDICATE.

Dec. 5. tbe -stata- tnent of William O'Brien Wedneaday with his colleagues, he would .eave for New York Thursday, all the Irish envoys are still at the Grand Pa- cific Hotel. The change of programme was due to a dispatco received from Jus- tin McCarthy to the effect that a solu- tion of the existing difficulty was being considered which would enable the del- egation to resume its tour of the coun- try without sacrificing the political po- sition of self-respect of those orits members whose signatures were at- tached to the anti-Parnell manifesto. At a late hour last night it was given out that the future movements of the visitors were more uncertain than they had been at any time for the past twen- ty-four hours, although it was probable that Harrington would leave for the east to-day. The sable dispatches re- ceived during the day were not of a re- assuring character, and as one of the delegation put it, they are literally "be- tween the devil and the deep sea." Cablegrams are flying to and fro between Dillon, O'Brien and McCarthy, and the delegation expects to decide upon its future course to-day. Surgeoa General Baxter WASHINGTON. Dec. Gen- sral of the army, who was striken with paralysis on Mondsy last, lied at his residence in this city Thurs- iay. He was born in Vermont in 1837.
