Chauncey Depew spoke at length on ti r(.H’ent evei*ts iii the, financial world. Ex-i resident Cleveland was called on to say something. Mr Depew had mentioned that Congressman Springer had nominated Mr. Cleveland for the lif?*1 democratic presidential candidate and sa’d he hoped tile republicans would nominate that eham-?J0“ of rt<‘iproci'y, James (J. Maine. .lr. Cleveland was not on the program to speak and arising made a f**w remark* He said he heard a good deal to-night about reciprocity with the Spanish speaking people. Now if its good for them, why isn’t it a good tiling to have reciprocity with our own people? We have heard about France helping out England and the United States financially. Why can’t they do so commercially? I'm sorry my friend, Mr. Depew, mentioned what Mr. Springer said, for it does not seem to me of much importance arid of no interest to you. gel Hemen. Mr. Cleveland jocularly referred to th.- banquet at Albany a few year* ago when Depmw had nominated him fur the presidency and hoped the republican party would nominate ‘ I bat grandest of statesmen and I Iumed Knight, the name which arise* to your lips but not to mine.” Cleveland added D ai h** had reason lo believe it was put thai way owing to Depew's extreme modesty. He had said at one time that he would when ie* got a good chance put in a good word for Mr. Depew s candidacy and asked if evened up Springer’s remarks.

It was hoped this excitement might pass without serious trouble, and up to this time no Indians have left their reservations.

The genera* replied “Not at all; these northern Indians are tougher than lea her.” Lieutenant Woodruff said in reference to the Mandan scare: “The Indians located nearest to Mandan are thirty-five miles away on the Cannon Ball river. They are a thrifty, industrious, peaceable people, who have taken up claims, built huts and houses, own * attle, pooh * and wagons and are in good circumstances.

I)., Nov. 18 —Late last night the city was startled by an alarm of an Indian outbreak. The report came from Mandan that the Indians at Standing Rock agency had left the agency arni were advancing on Fort Lincoln. The government was ( ailed on for aid, and by this morning the excitement was intense. a reduction of forces at Forts Lincoln and Yates has made the settlers apprehensive, for there are six thousand Indians at Standing Rock alone. It was learned this afternoon, however, that the alarm was unnecessary. F very tnt ug is quiet at Fort Yates and no trouble is expected there. Very few soldiers are no-v kept in the forts in this neigh’ orhood, and the settlers are easily alarmed The Indians could sweep the country west of the Missouri before assistance could be had, and the demand for enlarging the garrisons at Fort Yates aud Lincoln will be renewed.

If Mr. Parnell abandons the leadership, it is understood that his successor will enjoy the benefit of his continuous advice In the meantime it i> undeniable that the excessive virulence of the tory editorial* is causing a r action in public sentiment with regard to Mr. Parnell in connection with recent events.

The first grave opeoi d was that of his daughter, Miss El a Sewell, who died in 1887. The workmen were unable to lift the body out of the open grave, and assistance wa* sent for. It required seven *trong men to lift ti >• casket. When the lid was removed to the surprise of all tile *pectators the body was found to be in a perfect *•;!'** of petrification.

Experts assign as the cause of the na’vd the damp condition of the ground oc-ea*ioned by the exceptional flood- of June, 1889 about social ostracism to lie absurd.

How the Hen iv el I Murder Wha I Uncover*-.-J and Its Author Convicted. Woodstock, Ont., Nov. I*.—By the execution in Canada on Friday last of J. VV Birchall for the murder of F. C. Ben-well, public interest Is revived id the crime In which it was the culmination and atonement. Seldom, if ever, was murder more deftly planned than in this case to avoid detection by the criminal; rarely ha* discovery and full retribution demanded by the law followed more surely and swiftly upon the off use: it may be even said that never has that rare faculty of the mind, known for lack of a more distinctive phrase a* detective acumen, been more forcibly displayed or used to better public advantage.

Settlers are prepared to believe anything about the indians. In town there is somewhat less tension owing to the receipt of three hundred guns to-day from the state government and th** fact that a company of soldiers will be here to-rnorrow morning from Fort Totten. To-night there are two hundred Indians in town armed, but the citizens ar** armed too and patrols will be out and the people will sleep with their clothes on. A date will be fixed by a committee of citizens and Indian agents will be notified that after that date any Indian found in this country without a pa*s from the agent will be killed on sight,. The population is excited and although conservative men are doing their best to quiet the angry ones there is every reason to believe that. unless the government takes immediate steps to increase the force of soldiers here aud at Fort Lincoln every Indian coming into tile county will be killed.
