chief of each of the bureaus of thu navy
department , calling attention to thu rec
ommendations of the commission con
cerning the reorganisation of the navy
j'ardo and the disposition proposed to bo
inada of each yard. The commandants
of the various yards have been furnished
a copy of the letter and requested to as
sist in carrying out the plan of the com-
mission.JK'i'he secretary alludes to the
statistics of the navy , yards , and. says :
"They _ show an enormous daily ox-

when the only work in progress on ships

the Omaha. Shenandoah , Trenton , ' Os-

inconsistent with faithful administration.

contract lately awarded to John R. Miner
for carrying mail on the newly estab
lished route from Fort Niobrara to Dead-
This is the matter on which Senator
Van Wyck has been waging such a strong
war , and will bo looked upon _ as at least
a partial victory for him. Miner and his
backers were so sure of' being sustained
by the postal authorities , through the
influence of some of the Nebraska dele
gation , that they had already sent horses
and mules to various stations along the
route , and were getting ready to combo

ASSISTED IRISH EMIGRANTS.
Alexander Sullivan , president of the
Irish National League of America , ac
companied by a representative deputa
tion , presented to President Arthur yes-
tezday at the white house an address in
accordance with previous arrangements
and resolutions adopted at the great Irish
convention in Philadelphia , protesting
against the reduction by law and force of
largo numbers of Irish people to pauper
ism and their deportation in extreme
poverty to the United States. The ad
dress detailed the present condition of
Ireland and the efforts of the British
government to ship the poor and aged
people of that country to America. Mr.
Sullivan's address was supplemented by
short speeches by , Messrs-H. L. Hognet ,
president of the Irish Emigrant Savings
bank of Now York , Jas. Lynch , of Now
York , president of the Irish Emigration
society , and Smith , of Ohio , who said 73
impoverished emigrants were sent to Tif-
fen and wore a burden upon that com
The president replied to the address as
follows : The subject you present will re
ceive my careful consideration. It has
already been under consideration by the
secretary of state. Correspondence in
regard to it has been had with our diplo
matic and consular representatives , and
investigation into the facts is now being
made by mo. It is , of course , proper
that this government .should ascertain
whether any nation with which it holds
amicable relations is violating any obliga
tion of international friendship before
calling attention to any such mat
ter. The law now provides that
officers of the treasury shall exam
ine into the condition of passengers ar
riving as emigrants in any part of the
United States , and if there should bo
found any convict , lunatic , idiot or any
person unable to take care of himself
without becoming n public charge they
shall report the same in writing to the
collector of the port and such person
.ah. ill not bo permitted to land. In
vestigation will be thorough and exhaus
tive on this side of the Atlantic , and on
the other , and in the meantime the law
will bo strictly enforced. "
Each of ' the delegates was then pro ' '
sontcd to' the president by Sullivan and
the conference closed.

pose of the original and untried indict

who displayed his mettle Ity winning a
place in the final struggle Friday , but
who failed to keep up with either Han

at 4:07 : went off together , having been
placed1 aa follows : McKay , Leo , Oandaur ,
Elliott , Parker , Biley , Teenier , Plaisted.
Gandaur shoved to the front eiirly , with
Riley second and Elliott third , the latter
pulling thirty-six strokes to the ininuto.
At the half-mile buoy Rilcy and Gundaur
were abreast , both Jeadjng Teenier and' [
Leo alength. . Toemer then came up and 1
passed Elliott ; .who dropped out of
the race. Loo' " then forged ahead
arid turned rtlie milo and n
half buoy first , in 9:16 : , Gandaur second
end , with Teenier , Riley and Plaisted in
the order > namcd. At the milo and three-
quarter1 buoys Leo made a claim
that Gandaur had .fouled him , and from

gono. . Gandaur pushed ahead and passed
the two-mile buoy at 14:03 : , leading Leo
one-half length , McKay in close proximi
ty with Teenier on his quarter and Parker
and Plaisted well in the rear. Leo
stopped rowing after passing the two-
mile buoy. Toemor all this time was
rowing in fine form , and , passing Mc
Kay , pulled for Gandaur with a stroke of
32 to the minute. At the two and akhalf
milo buoy Teenier went'to the front and
hold it to the finish , Gandaur coming in
second two seconds later , with McKay ,
Riley , Parker and Plaisted following in
the order named , McKay and Riley being
well up to leaders.

o'clock , with five entries , as follows and
in the , order given : Hanlan and Lee ,
Plaisteil and Parker , Hosmcr andMcKay ,
Gandaur and Kennedy , Woisgerber and

told. Hanlan and Leo led elF at a forty
stroke , and wore pushed for ono mile by
Hosmcr and McKay , Woisgorber and

Porker dropping back early. Hanlan and
Lee passed the mile and a half buoy

Tlio opposition , which was rife against

to have subsided. In the light of present
events , it must bo conceded he was wise
in the course he pursued in refusing to
yield to the clamor of a few over-zealous
portions. Ho evidenced far more stamina
than most people supposed ho possessed.
The people will yet learn that ho has
more "sand" than they supposed. Time
and good judgment are turning those
who a few months ago wcro denouncing
him , to his fayor. There is now no
opposition to his renoniination , and he
will probably have none in the state con

THK SUPREME JUDOESUIP
is hotly contested. In DCS 'Moincs
township , which comprises the west half
of the city , there was a direct contest for
and against Judge Day , and a largo vote
was jjolled. The anti-Day ticket won by
a majority of 201 in a total vote of 90-1.
The. county may therefore bo set down
for McDill. John N. Rogers' Daven
port positively refuses to permit his name
to be used as a candidate for supreme
judge. Ho has boon mentioned quite
prominently , and is ono of the ablest
jurists in the state. The indications are
that Judge McDill will got it , though the
friends of Judge Reed of Council Blufi's
are coining to the front strong. They
will join issues squarely with the friends
of Lieut. Gov. Manning , and claim there
is.no precedent in the history of the
party for giving that office two terms to
the same person. But they will have to
contend with ono of the most popular
men who has held the place.
It is rumored that the L , B. & W. is
backing the Central Iowa for a Union
Pacific connection at Council Bluffs. The
Central is only waiting the completion of
the bridge across the Mississippi at Keiths-
burg to liavo an unbroken line from Peoria -
ria to Oskolposa.Thd I. , B. & W. con
nects with it at Peoria , and , it is under lr
stood , will join the Central in extending
that road from Oskaloosa to the Bluffs.
The wholesale merchants of this state :
complained to the railroad commissioners
that the rules of the railroad companies )
for charges for excess of baggage were
unreasonable and excessive. The board
hold that railroad companies are not
obliged to carry sample trunks of travel 110
ing njcn on passenger trains nt nil if the
weight is in excess of ordinary bagfjaco ;
that such trunks are properly freight ,
and may bo confined to freight trains ,
If carried on iwssongor trains , the com
panies are entitled to the same rates as
are charged by express companies for
freight carried on passenger trains. The
rules of the companies as fx > excess bag
gage are not excessive nor unreasonable.
THE BARBED WIRE MONOI'OLV.
The barbed wire monopoly have taken
a new departure. Probably worried by
the recent decisions of Judges Treat and
McGrary , of the federal court , and the
numerous actions since begun by licensees ,
who refuse to pay 'further royalties , they
have given notice of a reduction of the
price of wire to 0- cents per pound , or a
decline of nearly 20 per cent. Ono of
the most formidable contestants of this
monopoly is the Iowa Fanners' Protec
tive association , which has boon making
wire right along , refusing to pay license ,
and soiling wire nearly 3 cents a pound
less than the monopoly. " This association
says it ii ready to meet the drop in prices ,
and then make a profit. It is evident
the monopoly is badly wounded. The
farmers ca'n stand it.
The board of railroad commissioners
have just decided a case of interest to
farmers and railroad companies. Oct. 20
Engine 5 sot a fire to cut and drie'd weeds
weeds along the track near Esterville ,
Emmet county , on the Burlington , Cedar
Rapids & Northern road. The fire ran
north fifteen miles into Minnesota , when
the wind changed and drove it back , des- !
trying property of A. N. Haskins valued
at § 144.75 , three miles southeast of
where the fire started ; for which ho asks
compensation , and sets up the statute
which says any railroad corporation sluill
bo liable for all damages by fire that is set
or causedby thu opcratingof onystichroad.
The board hold that , under the language d.of
the wtatuto , a company would be liable for
any damage , however remote , and that
Inck of negligence cannot bo shown.
Thoy/ hold that the company may show
that they were guilty of no contributory
negligence within their right of way ,
and if the fire is
sot by gjiarks from i a
locomotive outside of their right of way ,
without any fault of the company , the
company would not bo liable. In this
case the fire started in dry weeds within
the right of way , and the company neg
lecting to remove the weeds contributed ;
to the fire , and they are thercforo liable ,
and should pay tlio loss. It should bo
noted that this case was adjusted by the
board without the cost of n dollar. The
name question woa contested by parties
three times to the supreme court , at a
cost of many thousand dollars. This
board is taking the place of the courts in
nearly all matters between the people
and the railroads.

It will bu utterly useless for mo to at

it Kid the south after thu rebellion. No

tains to bo exterminated only after a long
time , and theii only after , thuy have
killed thousands of white people. Now
they are willing to go back on the reser

of war and anxious for peace. These
Chiricahuas are thu only onus I did not

would have had them had I been al

Howard. None of thosu whom I did put
on thu reservation at the time have over

these if they are allowed to go on. This
is the only true policy to pursue concern
ing them. I am satisfied any other will
work mischief. This raid will result in
taking all the Indiana out of the Sierra

boon with the Indians , came forward , and
addressing them in Spanish , assured them
no harm would come if they would sur
render and follow the Apaches. There
was nothing else for them to do but to
THE INDIANS TUEN CAME FORWARD
and asked a great many ( questions through
Joso. They were anxious to know the
number of Mexican soldiers , their whereabouts -
abouts and intentions , to nil of which the
women answered as they could. There
was another woman with them at this
time , whom the Indians subsequently
sent to Chihuahua for peace , aa they
said. Thu Indians , with their captives ,
travelled incessantly thu remainder ( if
that day and all night. Thu place whore
they w'cru captured is known as Corritos
Puatcs , and IB half-way between Kl Car
men and Plan del Elamo. They calcu
lated that the next morning after the
cup tin o they weru at least 100 miles dis
tant , though they cannot tell in which
direction. For three days they were
without water , but after that it was
found in abundance. The country through
w hich they passed was wild beyond des
cription. At times they were compelled
to crawl unon all fours. Their thirst for
thu first three davs nearly drove them >
crazy , and the Indians would whip and
lash them up , and compel them to travel.
Toward thu last of their captivity their
food commenced giving out , and they
wcro put upon rations , o mimjl piece of
raw beef being all that was given them.
This had to bu divided among the six.
Mm. Antonia Hernandez all this time
carried her little child in tier arms. The
Indian children took great pleasure in
tormenting him , pinching him , and jab
bing sharp sticks in his aides , giving him
great pain. When they remonstrated ,
( joronuno or his men only laughed at her
misery. Thu last two days of their cap
tivity they had no food at all. There >
was snow on thu mountains , The cold
was intense , and

almost freezing. The Indiana novjr re
mained quiet in ono spot a day , but reno
continually moving. The - traveled
nearly 100 miles a day , going in every
direction , but tending generally nearly
westward. The captives wcro abused
and maltreated in every possible manner.
They were made to work heavily when
camp was made , and were a general
object of abuse and ridicule. Tlio In
dian * would take up Mrs. Hernandez's
little boy , threaten to _ kill him , and
would throw stones at him to the great
mental anguish of his mother. Ono of
the women was sent as a hostage of some
sort to Chihuahua to make peace. The ex
posure to cold , thirst , famine and ox-
hauitod from travel and fear of torture
was having an effect on thu poor
women. The flint thing they know
they were hustled ono day
further into the mountains. The next
day a brother of chief Chatto delivered
them up to General Crook. As ono of
them expressed herself when she saw
General Crook and the soldiers : "It
seemi'd as if the sky opened and heaven
appeared. " Theirpitiamo condition drew
deeply on the sympathies of the bravo
boys in blue , and they did everything in
their power to alleviate the Bufferings of
the women. A mule was given each
woman to ride. This was ono reason of
the Mow return of General Crook's com
mand. The women cannot find words to
express themselves for the gratitude they
felt towards the American soldiers ,
When the women started on the toilsome
journey on foot , 300 miles from El Car
men to Chihuahua , to follow their hus
bands home , they had no idea there were
Indians on the road , thinking they wcro
all in thu mountains to the north. They
have not scon their husbands for over six

The incrcaae of travel over the Pacific
railways has brought about the intro-

to time , until thu common freight or pas
senger engine of to-day is doing the work
of two engines such as was in use a dozen
yearn ago. The Central Pacific company
have built a class of ten wheelers , eight ;
of which are constructed after patterns
and drawings prepared by A. S. Stevens ,
superintendent of the motive depart
ment of thu Central Pacific. These en
gines possesses the novelty of having mall
the machinery located outside , so that
under the boiler there is nothing
except the axles. A now and
novel valve motion is operated :
by thu crank pins , doing away
with canu , while n very important ca

ST. Louis , Juno 24. The river is ris

flooded district , in the northern part oC
the city , presents about the same appear
ance it has for several days past. In the
lumber district largo gangs of men are
working on the levees and dykes. A
rise of another foot will imnulata all the
lumberyards. At Alton Slough'twenty
miles abovp here , among the islands in
the Mississippi , sawed boards in rafts are
mooied. While the slough is a reasona

sion is felt lest the rafts break loose atuL
In East St. Louis proper the situation ,

nothing but a watery waste. This after
noon ( ) the water which broke through
Madison dyke yesterday reached a point
a short distance above Venice , and broke
a fearful crevasse in the Chicago & Alton
embankment. About GOO feet of tlio
track seemed to sink and disappear in an
instant. , The gap has been widening-
over sinco. Parallel with this embank
ment ' ' runs the Indiana'polis & St. Lonift
and Wabash tracks , which could not with
stand the terrible current. They also wont-
down in quick succession , cutting off all
direct rail connection with the north.
The water is now spreading all over the
bottom lands of the old Ohio & Miss
issippi embankment , which crosses the
bottom between St. Louis and Caaoyvillo.
Probably no efforts will bo made to re
pair tlio cmbarkmenta until the water re
cedes. Meantime the Chicago & Alton ,
Chicago , Burlington & Quincy and In
dianapolis & St. Louis roads will carry *
passengers to and from St. Louis and Al
ton by steamer. Trains from the north ,
and east are made up at the latter place.
The Wabash will use the Vandalia and
Illinois Central lines to Decatur , where
where they use their own road.
The break in the Chicago & Alton track ,
has flooded nearly all the eastern part of
Venice , and forced many families to va
cate their houses. A considerable part of
the town west of the Chicago & Alton
track , which runs directly through the
place , is also submerged. The Venice
and Enterprise elevators are closed and
the stock yards on the bank of the river
are no longer available for uso. The
amount of flooded farm land on the
American bottoms , north of East St.
Louis , is said to bo 15,000 acres ,
and the loss to crops is computed ,
at not less than § 200,000. At
East Carondolct , ( ! miles below , on the
Illinois aide , fully three-fourths of the
families in town are quartered in three
school houses and n few residences on the
ridge . .ofjiigh ( m > und. Most ot these
people 'aro in 'a uostitude condition . Fioin
this point to tlio bluffs and for 4 miles
south to the end of the county is entirely
submerged and presents a scene of deso
lation and min. Had the flood hold
back two wricks longer fanners could
have saved most of the wheat and pota
toes. Now both tire lost and the farmers
are nearly ruined. The little town of
Cahokio , a short distance from Carondolct ,
is all under wrtor. The inhabitants move
about only in skiffs. Fully 10,000 acres
of wheat alonu is from two to six feet
under water in this section and as much
more of com , potatoes , and other crops
submerged , causing a loss of $200,000.
It is stilted the St. Louis , Cairo nnd Belt
roads have bean damaged fully $50,000.
Crovo Coour Lane , twenty miles west of
here , which came into prominence as a
rowing course hist season , has flooded its
left bank , doing great damago. The im
mense ice house of the Crovo Coour Ice
company , was undermined and fell ; loss ,
§ 40,000. Other property sustained con
siderable damage ,
The chief apprehension to-night is that
the Vandalia road , which is north of the
Ohio it Mississippi , will bo flooded. The
Ohio & Mississippi is above tlio flood
line of 18-14 , and no apprehension is felt
for it. The river rose three inches hero
to-day , marking thirty-seven foot seven
inches to-night. Kopoits say nearly
all the bottom land along the Mississippi
between here and Cairo is inundated.
The loss of crops amounts to hundreds
of thousands of dollars.
