A the article in the commercial Gazette the other Day about the roster department the adjutant general a office has caused quite a flurry and facts since obtained substantiate the statements therein made. It is a fact that nearly All the Republican Force clerks expected in november 1889, to cease drawing pay Early in 1890, even if the Foraker administration bad been continued for the reason that there would not be any work in the roster department for them to do. The inability to procure further data from the War department at Washington until some indefinite time in the future was known officially la the adjutant general a office about the Middle november 1889, add that fact itself was sufficient to Render unnecessary the employment the full Force All through the year 1890. Therefore general Hawkins defense does not old Good. Even by his own showing he spent As much Money practically doing nothing As general Axline spent in getting out two volumes the roster in 1889. General Hawkins neglects to give credit in his defense to the former administration for the fact that there was turned Over to him january 14, 1890, most Tea manuscript ready for the Printer for volume the two volumes now necessary to Complete the set not course including the missing records from Washington.

As the refugees visitors reached the outposts they were deprived their arms by the guards. The wily Hostiles however displayed Only a few weapons and these were later returned them when the owners went Back to the hostile Camp. It is not at All improbable that Many the Bucks had arms concealed about their persons. Shortly before noon Frank Gourd who had been to the hostile Camp arrived Aud announced As he flew by that the indians were not coming in. Up to midday the chiefs mentioned in these dispatches last night who were expected to hold a big talk with general Miles had not made their appearance and it began to look As if Gourd is report was Correct but shortly after noon it was discovered that the Hostiles had made a rapid Advance and about one thousand them had arrived to within one thousand Yards the pickets outside the Agency.

W. Burns the seventeenth infantry u. S. A., who is now stationed with his regiment at Pino Ridge Agency. Captain barns is Well known in Ohio having been detailed by the government to inspect the National guard the state and having been in that capacity connected for some time with the adjutant general s office. The letter is As follows Camp White River s. D., january 4,1891. My dear general we Are still in the same Camp waiting for something to turn up. We Are about six Miles from the a Oselles Aud could attack them any Day but i believe it is not the policy those High in authority to fight them if possible. The fight last monday was a most unfortunate affair but it could not have been avoided. I believe it was a cunningly planned scheme the part the Savage to massacre our men. They bad promised to surrender their arms and did surrender about Twenty them. The officers knew that they had the Rost them concealed and in order to make a Complete search directed the indians to form line our troops in front and rear them. The Tepee were searched and Only a few old Rusty worthless arms were found. It was then ordered that thelndiau8 be searched. As the first one was being searched Aud at a Given signal the scoundrels threw off their blankets and opened fire our unsuspecting men. For a few Momenta the fight was hand to hand our men clubbing with their muskets and the indians using their War clubs Aud knives. In a few minutes the forces became separated Aud our troops opened them with Hotchkiss and Gatling guns and the Slaughter was terrible. Two Hundred and forty six dead indians were counted the Field and about sixty four wounded. Cut a band 320 ten Only escaped. They had fur their ghost dance shirts before the fight believing thut these would protect them from the bullets the Whites and for this reason i would say i believe the affair was deliberately planned by the indians. One Little girl who was wounded and who is now in the Hospital at Pine Ridge says she had her ghost shirt Aud that she was told that it would protect her from the bullets the soldiers t is to be deplored that women and children were killed and wounded but if the indians had been successful these same women would have been the first to Scalp our dead and dying soldiers. It is also to be deplored that we have to fight these poor ignorant mortals but it is brought about by a false Aud fraudulent system dealing with them. The government Bas made treaties often with them none which have been kept. And when the government makes an appropriation for them they Are fortunate if they receive one half the appropriation. While no Indian this reservation has actually died from starvation yet they Are hungry All the time and this is what caused the whole trouble. 1 wu8 talking to Oue intelligent gentleman at Oelrichs 8. D., a few Days ago who has considerable dealings with the indians and who has occasion to visit Plue Ridge Agency frequently Aud he said that the indians at that Agency were in a starving condition and that they have been for the past thre i years and it matters not what the agents Tom Indian department say such is the fact. J we have Hopes that the indians now in our front will in a Short time return peacefully to their Agency Aud we believe they will As soon As they Are convinced that the ghost dance shirts will not protect them from bullets. We do not want to fight them As there is less glory in such warfare than in fighting a mob. What is absolutely needed at each a Goudy is a Force troops sufficiently Large to guarantee the settlers near the reservation absolute Protection Aud when such a Force conf ones them they will keep quiet unless starved into lighting. A a Why France prospers is a head line in the Star. One reason is the French people have Money sense. They know the value Public credit. They Are by medallists and sustain Silver by the limitation its Issue a Par with Gold. No free coinage foolery for them. No outcry about Bodholt is. And yet the Silver Cranks this country Are pointing to France As the land that shows the Beauty their system. A a Why the free coinage Silver would Tumble France from her financial position at once.

The View is picturesque and the site one from which the indians might easily retire were they not closely followed by general Brooke and his command. The latter at this writing is a few mile North the Mission and less Tau five Miles in the rear the Hostiles. What is to be done with the indians is a question Chieti has not Yel been answered. The disposition seems to be to let them roam in peace and for that reason All communication with them even by the newspaper me is being rigorously prevented.

The perpetrator the double deed said to be a Cinci Natian. 9 the More the mugwumps and the democrats who Are afflicted with ardent admiration their own statesmanship study the recent letters that passed Between Salisbury arid Blaine the less they have to say. They discover that Blaines letter is unanswerable and it is not in the mugwump stomach to likes fit. At first we were told . Blaine had followed . Bayard. Then that herbal frightfully refused to a arbitrate As Salisbury suggested. Next that he had and he had not insisted that the Behring sea was closed. At the same time there was a threatening array american warships at san Francisco menacing the peace the world. Finally . Blaine was not a lawyer and his object in annoying the English was to gain the Irish vote. It is highly becoming the Cleveland mugwump Crown to talk about the Irish vote when for the she that vote Cleveland kicked the British minister set the country because he in a few words that to behaved to be confidential allowed it to appear that he As a tory truly sympathized with the democratic nothing could repair damage like that but a brutal insult to the minister himself and it was promptly administered by the highest authority. Then Cleveland sent for the minister to England . Phelps to come Home and be his chief j ustice the supreme court the United states and when that gentleman came there was a delegation from Boston that overruled . Cleveland account the Irish vote and there was a change. So much for Cleveland and the Irish wrote. Or. Blaines letter proves to begin with that the Behring sea has been held distinct from the Pacific Ocean. There Are 105 authorities the subject in maps All standing for the american Contention. The analysis treaties proves minutely and comprehensively that the american claims Are grounded in history throughout and there is an explanatory note interpretation russian authority the treaty made with . Adams showing that Russia reserved for herself and therefore Lorns when she sold Theta to us the fishing rights in the Waters North the Aleutian islands the very Point we have occasion to assert and establish. The russian Seal companies existed forty years and the profits divided exceeded ten million rubles and no poachers Ever presumed to interfere with the russians. American whalers frequented those Waters and they never took to the massacre seals. The russians were undisturbed. We bought All the rights that the russians had. How is it that the renegade americans and the adventurous canadians have the Protection the British Flag is destroying our Seal fishery the most valuable in the world Are we especially subjected to outrage must we submit to an injury that no presumed to inflict upon Russia it is asserted that . Blaine desires to close the Behring sea. He never said so. Russia Dick not close the sea. We want and propose by the exercise authority Over a limited space for a season to protect an Industry to Stop a system Wanton and irreparable destruction that has already Cut Down More than three fourths the yield the catch the Lur seals Aud England interferes the ground that we have no jurisdiction the Waters except within a Marine league the shores. Why England has not regarded that old arrangement As a holy Law. Why does she Rush at us with it to take care those who Are using Ner Flag As a piratical Emblem Salisbury wants to arbitrate old lawyer fashion about the distance jurisdiction extends from Shore. That would be no arbitration. Or. Blaine proposes an arbitration that would come to business and if it is not the British policy to punish us for the Irish vote and to Back up the Bumpious tories Canada in their willingness to be quarrelsome with us and Aid them in imposing annoyances upon their neighbors we shall have a real arbitration. The Plain question is whether As we purchased and paid for Alaska we have As Many rights there As the russians had the right to the unmolested fur Seal fishery that the russians enjoyed Lor forty years profiting ten millions rubles whether we Are at the Caprice the British government to accept a standing less favourable. The new York Sun has a poet after . Cleveland with the Silver question. The following shows How he shines As he flow tons letters Miles speeches. Full virtuous saw Aud sentence celebrating the mugwump ego Caine fort from the prophets word shop set the weary world to yawning filled with wicked suicidal thoughts the much enduring printers but Silver not a syllable. Not a syllable Silver though the industrious jaws prophetic never ceased their steady working from them came no word Silver worlds words but never this Ona. Broad and shallow ran the current ceaseless current commonplaces. But no Sliver Light gleamed through u. Of and still Rau the Prophet talked everything that people did no to in the least desire he Bould but the one thing they wanted his opinions As to Sliver his present �?T91 opinions. Not wild horses could drag from him. It is very sad that Tbs mugwump hero and Martyr does not speak out the Silver question but he is not alone. We understand Iron the Herald that . Charles a. Dana is a candidate for the u. S. Senate and he has not told us whether he is for the Silver Standard. St. Louis january 12.�?Frank f.

A 00rner in rubber. Formation a Syndicate to control the Fara product. A a 1 1 1 is 1 new Yolk january 12.�? special a a Syndicate has been recently formed in Brazil with be View controlling All the products that country. That something mysterious was going in the rubber Trade Bas been known for some time but the ambitious Ness the scheme has just been made known. A person familiar with the line the syndicates intended operations seems to be convinced that if the Syndicate does not wholly realize la objects it will have at least considerable influence the future output the products Brazil in attention will directed chiefly to cornering the Para rubber crop which is the Lur Gost in the world. That they can succeed in producing considerable effect this commodity is evident when it is known that the capital the Syndicate amounts to 520.000,-000. This sum has already been taken up. But ail the subscriptions have not yet been paid. Enough Money has been paid in however to begin operations with the coming crop rubber. A Lipton Green the new York agent the red Cross Alae steamers to Brazil said to Day that he thought that the operation the Syndicate would increase Tho Price this years crop rubber. The Price crude rubber is now seventy six cents per Pound which is about the same is that a year ago. The Price however will be materially mor eased when the effect the syndicates operations have bad a Chance to be Felt. The Money has been principally subscribed by Brazil be added but some foreign capital Bas been invested in the scheme. The capitalists came together As late As last August when the Syndicate was founded it is stated that speculators have already control fully one half the Para crop. If the speculators were to succeed in securing control a single crop it would make their fortunes. This is especially True when it is considered that the leather Market has began to improve Moet decidedly and there is an excellent Chance that the Price leather boots and shoes will Advance i Quot a a Al v Quot Albany correspondence the times yesterday contained the cheerful announcement that governor Hill proposes to sell the place in the Senate. That would be perfectly in Accord with democratic principles. If there is a Democrat about who is Worth a few millions and would be willing to contribute a Quarter a million to democratic Campaign funds within a year Why he probably could take . Evarts seat and it would be precisely Ira to Btu should occur. What governor Hill wants to insure him the nomination in the next National democratic presidential convention is the Assurance to give the dem Oertli business men the presence within reach three Hundred to Sand dollars in a lamp one Hundred thousand for the last Days the Campaign. The seat in the Senate must go to a millionaire. There never has been a Public question greater interest to the people the greater new York the bigger Brooklyn the mightier Manhattan than that flow being debated in the Senate the United states the question whether we Are to stand by the worlds Standard values descend the the Silver Standard. Another form putting it in whether the Dollar in a Coin a the True and Only Standard shall be eighty cents and perhaps less one Hundred cents. Are we to stand beside England France Germany As High credit nations sink to the Grade Spain and the states she founded in America in financial position shall we contract currency by throwing aside Gold and wages by reducing the purchasing Power the Dollar the one contraction would destroy Enterprise a the other cripple and impoverish Industry. The democratic newspapers new York new Jersey and new Euglena Are not giving this enormous question serious attention. They Aro running away from it dodging it and going with twaddle about Tariff. Are the democrats new York Silver Mono medallists Are they in favor the exportation our Gold and the debasement the Public credit and the Money Standard they Claun to be entering upon the Possession the country.
