The last official report from Argen
tina showed that over 7.000,000 acres
had been sown In wheat, and It was
estimated that the harvesting of this
crop cost $220,000,000 In paper money,
gold being at a premium of 270 per
cent. Many of tho farmers, It Is said,
did not harvest the wheat. The total
yield of the present crop In Argentina
is put at 1,200,000 tons, for which the
farmers would get ?18,000,000, causing
a lois of f 1G2.000.000. The average price
of wheat there is $4 for 100 kilos of 220
pounds. The export of this year's crop
In Argentina Is put at 540,000 tonB. If
Argentina Is losing money on wheat,
It may he a sign that the farmers In

bureau has received a dispatch from
Agent Teter saying there Is absolutely
no truth In the report of a massacre of
tho Jackson's Hole settlers
Tbe Causes of tlio Trouble.
Ciikvknnb, WyoM June 2U. Adjutant
General Stitzer has forwarded his re
port of tho Indian trouble to tho gov
ernor. It is quito a lengthy document
and covers fully tho causes leading to
tho trouble. It says: "In an inter
view on Sunday with four prominent
residents of Jackson's Hole, the fol
lowing statements were given me as
grounds for tho action of the settlers:
They claimed that tho llannocks, Sho
shoncs and Lemhis havo for the past
six years slaughtered game in large
numbers, mainly for tholr hides. In
1894, after repeated appeals from the
county authorities of Fremont and
Uintah counties, the interior depart
ment ordered that, no more passes
should be given tho Indians al
lowing them to leave tlio reser
vation for the purpose of hunting.
It is estimated that f,0u0 elk were
killed iu that year. This year tho set
tlers of Jackson's Hole determined to
enforce tho law neainst the Indians
and whites alike. On June '24, a pro
cess was issued for tlio arrest of nine
Itannock Indians for violating tho law
When tho constable and posse at
tempted to sevre their papers, they re
sisted and threatened to kill them un
less they went back to Jackson's Hole.
Just about this time a squaw man liv
ing at tho Hole received a letter from
the Indian Bannock reservation stat
ing that tho llannocks intended to go
on tho war patli and kill tho whites in
the Jackson Hole country. This letter
was shown to tho settlers and created
a great deal of excitement.
"On July 2 eight ISnnnocks wero ar
rested for killing game, and six of
them were fined 8"."i and costs and sen
tenced to jail until the fine was paid.
They escaped from the guard and on
Jul j 10 more of tlio same tribe were
arrested. They attempted to escape
after trial and were fired on by the
whites, several of them being killed.
On July ' Captain John Smith, a miner
and prospector, was fired on from
ambush and wounded in tho
right breast. He returned the fire,
killing one of the Indians. The shoot
ing of Captain Smith caused a great
deal of excitement nnd tho settlers
believing that tho letter received by
the squaw man was true, prepared to
defend thembelves against tho expect
"Besides killin;,' largo numbers of
game, all tho Indians arrested had in
their possession hides taken from tho
settlers' cattle, which the Indiuus had
killed. It is claimed that over 3,000
head of clITIiavo been killed this sea
son, the Indians chasing game into the
settlements and shooting indiscrimin
ately among the houses, endangering
tho lives of settlers."
Trouble In Oregon Possible.
Portland, Ore., July 29. An Indian
nar, similar to that which has broken
jut botweon tho Bannocks and Utes
and tho settlers of Wyoming, may en
gage tho attention of the Oregon au
thorities in the near future unless the
interior department at Washington
takes immediate stops to prevent the
Indians now on tho reservations in
this state from indiscriminately
slaughtering game and fish in season
nnd out. Ever since Fish and Game
Protector McGuire has been in oilice
he has had trouble with reservation
Indians. Last summer about luO In
dians from the Wurm Springs reserva
tion fished out of the Clackamas river
in tho vicinity of tho new experimental
hatchery, a rpot which hus been their
favorite fishing grounds for many
years. Another fishing party is ex
pected to arrive and co into camp at
the now hatchery within tho next
three weeks just when the salmon
aro spawning and unless some meas
ures uro taken to stop them they will
surely have trouble with the hatchery

PRICES FOR THIRTY YEARS
Tlio Silver Debaters Discuss Wngrs nnd
CmoAoo, July 20. When tho lastdo
bate, but one, of tho Harvoy-Horr sil
ver convention opened this afternoon,
Mr. Horr began with a comparison of
the wnges and tho cost of products
during tho years from 18C0 to 1800, as
shown in the tablo prepared by Statis
tician Cnrroll D. Wright. With
wagea and prices in 1800 taken as
tho Index, or 100, it showed that in
1800 prices were 0.J, wages IG9, and tho
purchasing power of wages 172. Ho
argued that at no time in tho history
of tho nation was tho country as pros
perous as it was then, in spito of tho
"crime of 1873," He submitted that
these statistics wero more applicablo
to tho conditions under discussion than
those of Mr Sauerbeck, quoted by
Mrs Harvey on Thursday, as Mr. Sauer
beck's figures were made from prices
Mr. Harvey, in turn, took up tho
prices of wheat for a series of vcars, in
reply to Mr. Horr's statement Thurs
day that tho farmer received as much
for his produce In gold as ho had re
ceived before silver was demonetized.
He quoted tho prices from year toyear
and declared that tho arguments of
Mr. Horr wero those which' had been
used in all time to bulwark tyranny.
Tho Declaration of Independence wns a
proper answer to such-arguments. Tho
proper index of prices was to measure
them in articles of international use.
Tuhlcs made up by gold men even, on
these articles, showed that they wore
lower than in 1850. Itefcrring to Mr.
Horr's argument touching the measure
of value iu human toil, he quoted from
an nrticle by Mr. Horr in a New York
paper in reply to a correspondent sug
gesting the making of so much work
the equivalent of a dollar. Mr. Horr
declared tho proposition absurd and
OHIO DEMOCRATS SPLIT.

Hamit.to.v, Ohio, July 9. When tho
Democrats of Butler county met to-day
to select delegates to the stato conven

large following present. Tho main
fight was on securing the majority
in the central committco for
silver. The convention wns called to
order in the opera house but there was
a split and the sound money men nd
journed to tho court house, with ex
Governor Campbell us presiding officer,
while the free silverites remained in
the opera house with Allen Andrews as
chairman. The excitement was in
tense nnd for a time pandemonium
reigned. It finally became necessary
order out the police force to keep order.
The court house convention elected
James E. Campbell and Paul J. Sorg
as delegates at largo to tho state con
vention. Tho other selected II. C.
Gray, Peter Schwab, David Pierce,
John F. Nielan, Christian Benning

Tronic Managers Declare They Will Keep
the ltoads llusy Twele Months.
Kansas City, Mo.. July 29. Traffic
managers of tho Western roads aro
busily engaged these days in estimat
ing tlio prospective size of the forth
coming corn crop. It is believed by
them that from information they havo
a conservative estimate is to give the
states of Iowa, Nebraska and Kunsas
800,000,000 bushels. Of this amount
300,000,000 is credited to Kansas, 223,
000,000 to Nebraska and the balance to
Iowa. This is of corn alone, leaving
as much other cereals to be moved to
market. Tho amount of traffic which
is looming into sight will certainly
keep the roads busy fnr at least twelve
months to come so traffic men figure.
