Pknukk, Neb., duly 27. Captah
Beck and tbo congressional delega
tion had a stirring session yesterday
morning and violence -was imminent
for several minutes at tho Winnebago
agency. Ho offended tho entire Ne
braska congressional delegation in his
ofllco and would hnvo' ordered the sen
ators and congressmen from the room
had It not been for Senator Allen. The
proceedings began when Senator
Allen stated that tho two senators and
thrco representatives of the congres
sional delegation of Nebraska had
come for tho purposo of informing
themselves as to tho condition of
affairs. In reply to this Cnpttfln Beck
made a short statement, llo stated
that the Flournoy company had sys
tematically robbed tho Indians and
that it was a corrupt concern general
ly. Captain Beck said the members of
the Flournoy company and every one
of its friends and spmpathizcrs were
infamous liars and scoundrels. Just
as the captain finished, John F.
Meyers, tho treasurer of the companv,
entered tho ofllco.
"You are not tolling tho truth and
.you know it," he said.
If a giant firecracker had been ex
ploded under tho captain's feet he
could not have been more excited.
'Get out of here," ho cried; "get out
of here. This is my ofllco. " I will not
have you in it I am master here.
You have been arrested by the United
States marshal and ought to bo in jail.
I will not have you here. Get out be
fore I have j'ou thrown out,"
An exciting scene ensued. Senator
Thurston remarked: 71 wish to know
whether or not this convention, repre
senting a majority of Abo members of
tho Nebraska congwsslonnl delega
tion, is to proceed wiuiout a repetition
of such scenes as the one we have just
seen enacted. Wo ire amply able to
preserve order witout the interfer
ence or assistance n the part of any
one. If this delegation is here without
right the right ofj American citizens
to know how their Awn affairs pre be
ing conducted, I, Inr one, am ready to
retire at once." ;J
captain Beck ju'Jiped to ins icct ana
excitedly oxclaim.jd that he did not
recognize tho autlority of the delega
tion, t J
"bit down." Senator Alloa spoke
tho words. The' captain sat dowu.
Tho investigation proceeded without
further trouble. Captain Beck sub
mitted letters ad telegrams to show
that ho had tho approval of the in
ferior department in everything ho
The scntimp'nt of the Nebraska con

"Investigation now in progress leada
us to urgefyou to suspend approval of

Captain Heck, and to promptly sus

' CARRIE LANE INCIDENT.
Ko oniclul Itcport of tho Affair r.Iuda at.
Yet to "Washington.
Washington-, July 37. The reported
firing on tho Carrie E. Lane, an Amer
ican schooner, by a Spanish cruiser off
the Cuban coast, has not yet been re
ported oflicially to tho state depart
ment, nnd in tho absence of any defin
ite statement, tho officials decline to
express an opinion on tho subject.
The important point to bo estab
lished in this case is tho exact loca
tion of tho Lane when she was
signalled to stop. The captain's
statement is that this was off Capo
.Antonio, but he does not say whether
or not ho was in tho three mile limit.
If he was he Could not claim exemption
from responding to a demand to es
tablish his identity, as was contended
by Secretary Gresham in the Allianca
case, for his was not a vessel following
a regular route, but one cruising from
port to port in the West indies. In
Tiew of tho fact that several filibus
tering expeditions have succeeded In
landing In Cuba from the coast
of Jamaica and other of the West In
dian islands, officials hero are not s-ur-prised
that tho Spanihh commanders
should exercise every precaution to
makesuroof the innocent purpose of
any small sailing craft seen hovering
about tho Cuban coasts, and it is felt
that this particular eommander acted
within his rights if he fired a shot
mcross tho Lane's bow if she failed to
stop when signalled in regular form.
Tho small size and appearance of the
schooner, it is said, was airaiiut her.
and calculated to excite suspicion as
to her object.

WYOMING INDIAN TROUBLES.
The Whiten Determined nnd Propose to
Settle the ltsd Man.
Rawlins, Wyo., July 2. Wnrren
Smith passed through hero direct
from tho Jackson's Hole country. Ho
reports that tho settlers are In good
heart and that they will attack a body
of Indians if they show up. They told
him that tho war was on nnd that now
u us tho time to fight It out Either
tho white settlers owned that country
or tho Indians, and they were willing
to fight for their rights, only asking
their friends on the outsido to scud
them arms and ammunition.
When told that United States troops
would bo thrown in there Smith ex
pressed the hope that it would bo douo
quickly, for he feared that tho con
fidence of the settlers in their own
strength was not well founded. He
said tnat there come dally reports of
bands of Indians in different parts of
the mountains and those it was pro
posed by the settlers to hunt out and
capture. He thought that tho bottlers
were fast losing sight of tho idea of
simply enforcing the law, and, to use
his own language, "They nro so much
in earnest that they are wild. Tho pop
ulnr thing in Jackson's Hole is to nt
tuch yourself to a posse and hunt the
Adjutant General Stltzer of Wyo
ming, who was at Market Lake to-day,
was hourly expecting to hear that a
conflict had occurred between tho set
tlers aud the Indians in the Jackson
Hole valley. Two of his messengers
dispatched to that district several days
ago, havo not returned, although over
due, and grave fears are now enter
tained that they have been ambushed
by tho Indians.
Indian police who havo returned
from the Fall river valley where tho
big trading powwow has been in pro
gress for a week, say that tho band of
Bannock Indians under tho leadership
of Jim Ballard has started north
toward 'the seat of tho trouble. If
these Indians reach the belligerents in
tho Fall river valley before tho troops
get thero and they undoubtedly will
the result may be disastrous, for
Ballard's band is eomposed of tho
worst clement of the Bannocks,

Hon. Hoko Smith, Secretary of the
Interior, Washington, D. G Dear Sir:
Wo havo tho honor to inform you tlint
wo telegraphed you today asking that
no more leases made by Captain Beck,
agent of tho Omaha and Winnebago

I lnndb in the interests of justice to in
nocent, seiners Whose crops would be
entirely lost to them by sucli evictions
and who would otherwise bo trreatly
damaged thereby. Tho wheat, oats
and rye crops are now ripe and demand
immediate harvesting, and unless this
is speedily done they will bo lost to the
owners. The eviction, therefore, of
settlers who have been suffered to cul
tivate these lands to this time, without
any serious objections upon tho part of
the government,, will result in great
damage to them and the loss of their
entire small grain crops.
The difficulties at this agency among
agents and officers of the agency have
been and nre of such a character as to
attract wide public attention and to de
mand some attention upon our part as
representatives in congress from this
ctnte. We havo therefore boon Klltlmr
together, as a body, for three days,
listening to the statements of tho set

concerned at this place and at the

ourselves of the truth of thu matters in

In view of the character of the testi

immediate and searching investigation
of tho affairs of tho Omaha and Win

silver debate was continued UiU after

Mr. Horr opened the dtscimion: by
saying that tho J2,' grain sllvir dol

187S wero all coined at Iho Philadel
phia mint and from foreign silver
coins which hnd accumulated in tho
treasury tinder an act of congress
which made them receivable but did
not permit them td bo paid out again.
Hint was why silver was Coined at less
than its bullion value. After 1853 the
government did not coin a dollar of
silvor for private ownership.
Mr. Harvey in reply denied tho state
ment and declared that Mr. Horr
could not prove iL Ho presented a

cussion of the question of primary and
credit monoy. Ho said that as soon as
thero was an ovor-lssuo of credit
money, it caused distrust of tho gov
ernment's ability to pay. Tills caused
a run on tho treasury for the re
demption of credit money nnd tho
only remedy was to cither in
crease the amount of tho primary
money, or decrease the amount
of credit monor. The amount of
gold in tho United States wiucstimnied
nt from 5100,000,000 to SOOtf.oOO.OOO, and
of credit money at about 81,000,000,
000. Tliis was too much credit money,
uud accounted for tho country's finan
cial derangement. The remedy was to
Increase the primary monoy by remon
etizlng silver. Every moment's delay
would endanger tho safety of tho re
public. CARLISLE TALKS.
Say Ho Does Not Want tho Democratic)
Nomination for rrenhlent.
lliCHJiONi), Vtt., July 20. A repre
sentative of the State had an interview
with Secretney Carlislo yesterday.
The interviewer snid to Mr. Carlisle
that many Democrats regard him us a
strong man for president, and ns tho
only legitimate successor to Mr. Cleve
land. "Well," responded tho secretary,
"notwithstanding tho fact that tho
presidency is tho greatest honor that
can bo bestowed, I do not nnt the
office. 1 havo seen too much of tho
hard work attaching to it. Tho re
sponsibility is not only tremendous,
but tho work multiplies and becomes
more exacting every year. A man
must have an iron constitution to
stand it. I am sincere when 1 say 1
do not want the nomination and elec
tion. I will certainly do nothing to
ward getting tho nomination."
Mr. Carlisle then went on to say
that not sinco tho government was
founded has any administration hnd
such trying times as this, administra
tion has had to contend with.
"How nbout tho third term talk?
Many people are expressing a desire to
u .hi-, iiuvuiunu nominated again
"As close as I am to tho president,"
btiid Mr. Carlisle, "he has never re
ferred to that subject In my presence.'
I know no more about it than von do.
But as Mr. Cleveland did not seek tho
nomination of IW2, it seems needless to
say that hi will not be a willing candi
date next yenr, 1 know ho did not
want to run the last timo."

a number of them. These wero tried
before a justlco of tho peace and
fined heavily, tho aggregate amount
ing to 81,200. The Indians could not
pay it and wero herded by armed men
in a manner calculated to nrnnui fhnii-
resentment. Ono batch was es
corted by a body of armed men after
having their guns taken away. They
were passing over a trail where tho
Indians had been accustomed to rldo
in freedom. It wns too much for tho
Indian nature and tho captives mado a
break for liberty. Tho guards at ouco
opened fire at tho fugitives and killed
fccvornl, reports varying from five to
seventeen. Thoy reported that thoy
had killed only ono, but five riderless
horses went over tho trail. As a result
tho Indians nro mad and may make
trouble. There ure many rumors afloat,
but lack verification. It is- a fact,
however, that 200 of tho Hhoshones nro
missing from the reservation and havo
gone to help the Bannocks.
