One hundred and fifteen citizens
of southern Colorado and New
Mexico have petitioned Gen. Sher
man to establish a military post In
their section of country, for the
protection of its citizens from In
dian raids. They describe the
country as one of the finest pastoral
countries in the world. There are
200,000 head of fine sheep, and 75,
000 head of cattle now feeding on
the rich pasture 'of this region, un
attended by shepherds or herdsmen,
because they have been murdered
or driven off by the Indians. Sav
ages from the Indian Territory make
frequent raids into that region,
butchering the inhabitants, kill or
drive of horses and cattle. Ten or
twelve citizens are known to have
been butchered within the last five
days, and many more are missing;
300 head of horses have also been
driven off in the last few days. The
nearest military post is Fort Lyon,.
100 miles distant. The petition ha
been-forwarded to the secretary of
war for action thereon.

Considerable scandal has been
created in clerical circles by the ar
rest, Wednesday, of Rev. John S.

charge of bastardy preferred by An
nie Poraeroy, who, during the past
two years, has presided at the organ.
Glendenny was taken to Miss Pom

admitted to bail in one thousand
dollars, and he proposes to publish
a statement declaring his inno

The Beecher investigation com
mittee held an impoitant meeting
last night, the result of which is
kept secret. The Daily Eagle of
this afternoon says that enough,
however, is known to warrant the
assertion that the crisis of the
Beecher-Tilton scandal has been
reached, that the so-cal'ed very
worst is known and that it is noth
but what an explanation and an
apology would atone for. Beecher
will come out of the furnace of afflic
tion with the purest estimate of his
character, like gold many times re
fined. Beecher is at present on
his farm atPeekskill, while Tilton
is at his home on Willow street, en
gaged in preparing his case for pre
sentation to the coiumittee. Mrs.
Tilton is living at Snedecker's Ho
tel, Coney Island.

From the Golden Age:
"One painful topic continues to
effect the public mind; it depresses
whoever tninks; it fills whoever
feols with unanswerable sorrow; cu
riosity that would reed on prurient
ideas has given awav to an anxiety
that gnaws at heart-strings, and a
suspicion that overshadows the
whole community with gloom. It is
an Impossibility to avoid allusion to
what is in everybody's mind and on
The policy of silence wa3 con
tinued too long, and concealment is
no longer possible. The worst must
be known. This matter does not
concern private and obscure in
dividuals only, but the name aud
fame of one of them belongs to the
American people. Thousands had
invested their interest and hope Jn
tho other as a man of brilliant
promlso, whose future would be an
honor to tho country. Both of
them lived In a blaze of publicity
rising from a matter which concerns
the innocence of one and the honor
of the other, and it affects the whole
For years this terrible scandal has
been in circulation, and growing, by
the efforts made to supproes it, more
and more serious. It was pushed
aside until at last it has assumed
proportions that put it beyond indi
vidual control. No barking that
can now be struck up by interested
friends will satisfy the public, nor
save the character of the par
ties involved. The dam has bro;
ken nnfi tpo flood ' ihiist ' come.
To talk of compromises now is
as wild as to stop Niagara with
compliments, and the sooner the
worst Is known the better forevery
IxhIv. Mr. Beecher has chosen a
committee of honorable men to act
as jurors of the gentlemen in ques
tion. There is lqt onp opinion but
Sipro c.an bo only 6110 opinion, as to
Is Selecting Judges who are to de
dido a case that involves iu it the
character ami stajullng of others as
wpll as his own. Were a father to
rpfer a complaint of his neighbor to
hjs own sons for arbitration, they
might feel complimented by this
serjp, blit the community would
regard his conduct as a confession.
Innocent men do not pack juries.
In justice to hlmelf, his opponent,
and a nation full of friends, who
cherish his honor as their own, Mr.
Beecher should have given Mr. Til
ton a choice of Jialf the committee.
Thopolicy that has been pursued, is
admirably calculated to make the
the people believe that the worst Is
true. A brave and manly confession
in the first place, if there was any
thing to confess might have saved
three, reputatjons. and quo qf thern,
from ruin. Nobody cares for details,
but everybody demands that the es
sential truth, and the whole of it
shalltbe made known. American
people are judges, and their verdict
will be Just, provjded thoy havo
facts to judge from.
