KANSAS Cur , Mo , , July 10 , A Kingman
opecial views the Indian situation as | foliows ;
Col. Ceorgo B. Sanford , First cavalry , and
his battalion , consisting of troopi of the First ,
Third , Fonrth and Sixth cavalry , arrived
hero at 10 o'clock this morning , from Fort
Loavcnworth. The horses and mules were
unloaded and c mp established southeast of
the city. The town was still crowded with
women and children who had fled from the
country for protection from the supposed In
dian raid.
Diligent inquiry was Instituted by tha
corresponeent to obtain bottom facts
of the whole matter.
According to the stories to-day by the refu
gees gathered bore , men mounted on fleet ani
mals had ridden through the country districts
warning everybody oi their fata If they did
not at once ( lee for their lives , as thi Indians
wore on their way , killing ana burning every
thing in their path. This ciuiod the greatest
alarm and flight of the people to the cities.
The sheriff of thls ounty states that no In
dians can bo found within 125 miles of this
A posse under Marshal Fossett has been
scouring the country for a distance of over
forty miles , Informing everybody that no dan
fler need ba expected , the country being en
tlrely free from Indians.
It is the general opinion hero among the
people that the scare in gotten up wholly in
the interest of cattlemen. During the past
two years southwest Kansai has been settled
so rapidly as to make the range very limited.
What a few months ego was in uninterrupted
range of prairie , extending for hundreds of
miles In all directions , affording the finest
pasture for hundreds of thousands of cattle ,
has , as if by moglo , been transferred Into
fertile fields , hno farms and attractive homes.
The gradual encroachment of these indus
trious husbandmen upon territory the cattle
men bad bsen led to believe would always
bo theirs , and finding that they would have
to move off unless thin wonderful emigration
was checked , hunted about for aomo schema
to frighten thesottlors.
The present condition of affairs In the tor-
rlorr furnished them an excellent pretext ,
and early this Week cowboys started over the
country warning settlers of the approach of
hostile Indians. The scare was successful ,
The best of feeling has not therefore pre
vailed between tbo agriculturists and the
stock raisers , and this will certainly not Im
prove their relations , "Cattlemen must go"
is the ( renoral opinion of the people hero. This
is naturally an agricultural region , no matter
what may have been believed of it heretofore ,
and it will bo devotsd to that purpose almost
exclusively a few years hence ,
The notion that the scare was originated for
the purpose of pillage and robbery cannot be
longer entertained , for all settlers who have
returned t their homes have found their ef
fects just as they left them. Thus far not a
single loss of any property has been reported
here. It certainly was an excellent opportu
nity for robbery , as for miles around King
man there were few homes occupied for two
nights , and people disposed to steal could have
done so without hindrance. That there are
no losses reported confirms the public more
and more In the opinion that the cattle men
are responsible for this excitement.
As evidence of the groundlessness of the
general alarm a letter was received hero this
morning from Bross which was said to have
been ono of the places laid waste by maraud
ing Indians and it positively declares that np
Indians have been seen or heard of in that vi
The story that Saratoga In Pratt county
had been destroyed , is contradicted by the
following note to the editor of the Kingman
Courier :
To tbo Editor of the Courier :
SARATOGA , Kan. , July 8. The Indian scare
is known to bo entirely groundless. Every
story told In connection with it is shown to be i
false. 1'leaso lelegraph the Associated press i
wo do not want falsa reports to go abroad.
W. F. GinnoN3l Postmaster.
Other communications received hero are of
the same import. It is confidently asserted
that there is not a hostile Indian anywhere In
Kansas at this timo.
Captain J. B. Johnson of the Third cavalry ,
started out this afternoon with his troops in o
southeasterly direction , to rcnut the cjuntrj
and inform the settlem of the entire safety
jom Indian rslds. It Is also his Intention tc
o-oporato with the troopi from Caldwell , n
portion of which are expected to come thU
way for tbo same purpose.

He is directed to establish his camp at a con

supplies are tn bo eont him.
Col. Campion's camp will be about fiftj
mites south of Dodge City , on the road to
Fort Supply. He will send scouta toward
Col. Sanford'j command along the Indian
frontier. The latter has been directed to send
Bconta east and weit.
Marshal Foatott of thia place , who has had
much experlodce in frontier llfo and under

or New Mexico to the Indian territory
until congress should have legislated
further upon the subject. The
Arizona delegation were somewhat confoudcd
when their attention waa called to this act ,
the existence of which was unknown to them.
It ws suggested to them that the Apaches ,
without violating the statute , could bo trans

P. II. Shosidan , Sir : In view of the possible
disturbances that may occur among the Indi

cality I doom it desirable that you
proceed at once to the location

advise with and direct these in command as
to the steps to bo taken to prevent disorder
and depredations bv the Indians , Your
acquaintance with history and habits and
customs of these Indians loads mo also to re
quest you to invite stntetnents on their part
as to any real or fancied Injuries or injustice
to them or any other cases that may have
lead to discontent and to inform yourself gen

fied in assuring thom that any causa of com

nesday night , after midnight , a party of
painted dog soldiers rode into the agency
and called for the agent. They were told he had
gone over to Fort Ueno , and after a abort coun
cil the Indians rode away. Their spokesman

Special Telegram to The BEE ,
NEW YOBK , July 10. The World's London
Bpeclal says : The origin of the Pall Mall
Qazett's article wai in the arreat of n woman
known as "Ma'am Jeffries" for the abduction
of a young girl from Holland. She occupied
ono of the residences In Picca
dilly , but la understood to have owned and
used for her purposes some twenty other
houses In various parts of London ,
In her residence the police seized a
number of large and handsomely bound
volumes in which she kept a regular debit
and credit account of her business , The en
tries embraced hnnaruds ot names from thn
most exclusive circles of London and among
them were several well-known New Yorkers ,
who visit this city nearly every year. It was
whispered that the original establishment was
under the direct patronage of the IMnco of
Wale ? , and the allusion in the Gazette's edi
torial yesterday afternoon gives foundation
for this rumor , "lot those who do not wish to
shake the very foundation of social order "
says the editor , Mr. Stead , "think
twice before compelling us to
confront In court the brothel
keopoia with the princes of blood , and prom
inent public men with the victims of their
lawless vice. "
The woman exorcised the utmost care to
secure the custom of only men of the highest
rank nr social position. No ono could enter
except as introduced by a person well known
to her. It is said she would secure through
her agents in various parts of Great Britain
and the continent , and she apparently had as
many agents as Pinkerton , of thn
United States , young girls of 13 or
14 , ot common parentage , bring them
to London and put them in charge of the best
master ? , not only in literature but oho In
deportment. They were never allowed to go
upon the streets except under charge of a gov
erness or maid and when duly educated and
roSnod they would be introduced to her estab
lishment , If a rich patron happened to know
of or hear of some clrl of the lower order , in
whose betrayalibe did not wish to be known ,
the woman wonld send an agent , generally
a female , to her and by deception and
persuasion only too often managed
to secure her as a victim. Her books shows
she was an intermediary as well for many
women of good and even the highest social
position. Ihe exposure In this respect fur
nishes a shocking commentary upon the con
dition of morals in the "better circles" of the
metropolis. The entries in her books go to
show that she kept a regular credit account
with some of her male patrons , the amounts
charged in some instances reaching thousands
of pounds. Some of the entries
show she would temporarily root ono of her
houses to such patron with furniture , servants
and a skilled cook , an elegant and complete
entourage , In fact. No money was paid by
any patron directly. She would render her
account to him at regular intervals and he
would send the amount due by messenger.
LONDON , 3 p. m. , July 10. The excite
ments over the Pall Mall Gazette's revela

celves every day a number of cablegrams from
tbo United States , asking about the progress
of the exposures , Cardinal Manning has ac
cepted the proposition made by the proprie
tors of the Pall Mall Gazette to submit com
plete proof of all of Us revelations , including
every name and detail , to a party of respon
slblo men , to include the cardinal and the
Hon. Sam Macroy. The examiners are to
have the privilege of reporting to the public
upon the affair as they may deem best ,

the news affecting crops WAS not essentially
different from that of the preceding two or
three days. The croud appeared to bo wait
ing for the July estimate of the government
alntleticiana as to the probabla when' yield , in
expectation that the figures might have some
effect in the coursa of pricoi. There was the
usual number of prognostications concerning
the report , but they were generally discredit
ed. It was generally baliovod that they
would disclose a decrease as compared with
the June report and to this cause is ascribed
the strength nhown toward the close of the
afternoon session. The market opened a
slmdo weaker , rallied jj@io on reported damage -
ago to cropa by recent storms , later fell off g

The market was quiet and the feeling easier ,

From John B. McM ster'a History.
Tire young men began the work In the
summer of 1709. They iroro brothers ,
pronchora , nnd on their Tray across the
plno barren of Ohio , but turned naldo
to bo present at a sacramental solemnity
on Rod rlvor. The people were nccus-
tomod to gather at such times on Friday ,
and by praying and singing , and hearing
sormone , propara themselves for the re
ception of the aacramont on Sunday.
At the Rod river mooting
the brothers were asked to
preach , _ and ono did BO with
astonishing fervor. As ho spoke the people
plo were deeply moved , tears inn stream
ing down their facoi , and ono , n woman ,

through order and began to shont , For
three hours after the regular preachers
had gene the crowd llngeroi and wore
loth to depart. Whllo they tarried ono

felt called to preach ; that ho could not

and again the woman shouted , and

The crowd bcggod him to to turn back.
Something within him urged him on , and

exhorting and praising Gad. In a mo
ment the iloor , ta USD his own words ,
"was covered with the alnin. " Theia
cries for motby were terrible to hoar.
Some found forgiveness , but many wont
away "spiritually wounded" and suffered
unutterable ngony of soul , Nothing
could allay the excitement. Every uot-
slement along the Green river and the
Cumberland was full of religious fervor.
Men fitted theif wagons with beds and
provisions , and travelled fifty miles to
camp upon the ground and hoar him
preach. The idea was now , hundreds
adopted It , and camp meetings began. At
the Cano ridge mooting 20,000 were en
The excitement surpassed anything
that had been known. Men who came
to scoff remained to proaoh. All day and
all night the crowd swarmed to
nnd fro from preacher to preacher
singing , shouting , laughing , now
rushing of ! to listen to some new exhorter
who had ollmbod upon a stump , now
gathering around some unfortunate who ,
in their peculiar language , was "eplritu-

Women Clerks in Shoo Store * ,
"The reason that so few women are
employed as clerks in retail shoo stores , "
said a ahoo merchant , "is that they will
not , with any degree of politeness , try a
pair of shoos on a lady customer. Every
woman who buys a pair ol shoes now de
sires thorn tried on , and custom within
the last few years Imposes upon the
clerks the task of kneeling down end fit
ting them to the sect. Male clerks do not
mind it , but ono woman never likes _ to
put a shoo on another. If they do bring
themselves to do It they exhibit such
utter repugnance to the customer that she
rarely comes back again. If she doca
she will not let a female clerk wait upon
her. I know same women who will wait
an hour for a male cletk to become dla-
engaged rather than have ono of her own
sex wait if on hor. Yet I keep several
women In my store to wait upon a cer
tain class who are exceedingly modest
and will not permit a man to try apalr'ol
shoes on their feet , The female olotka
all say they prefer watting on men ; theI
they are not BO exacting and particular at
women , and either take an article Immo'
dlatoly or refuse It. On the contray ,
a woman is voiy particular , and takes t
long time to decide upon what she de
sires to purchase. Nothing flatters i
woman more than to have a polite clerl
try on a pair of shoes and make some remark -
mark about the beautiful tlnpe of he :
feet , A female clerk never Indulges ii
such compliments to her own eex. M ]
experience is that men alone are bos
fitted to cell ladles' ahcoi.

The secretary of the navy has proponed ef
fecting an entire ro-orgamzation of the nine
government navy ynrds not later than next
fall. An investigation looking to this end baa
been in progress for BOBIO weeks. Committees
nt the various yards have boon examining the
books nnd papers covering a period of tea
years. These committees have been nnd tire
being assisted by n special commission sent
from the imvy department. The reports nro
to bo sent to Washington and com
pared with the books there. The object
of the invc&ttgatlou In to learn whether or not
the books will ngrco with the accounts In the
department at Washington. It is thought
that already a discovery has been rrmtlo ; that
the books nt the department show that certain
materials which oupht to be on hand In ono
of the yards cimiot bo found. At the Mare
> sl nd navy yard , California , the investigation
will bo most thorough because of the reports
of needless expenditures of money at that
place ,
The secretary has boon fnrnishdd with the
names of a number of persons who say that
they can give evidence of fraud in that yard
in the repair of United States vessels , "Will
the secretary order an Investigation of the re
pairs on vessels in all the yards } " was ntketl
of n naval officer to-day who is acquainted
with the Bccretaty'a intentions.
"It is usoVsa to order an investigation , " ho
replied. "Money baa been spent in some
caecs recklessly , and I expect fraudulently ,
but it cannot ba recovered. At ono yard ,
Mare Island , large amounts have been spent.
This yard is a great distance from Washington -
ington and tbo officers have seemed to
feel that they could act with
impunity. I have heard it said that rotten
wood has been placed in vessels being re
paired that they might soon bo returned for
additional repairs. Little more than three
years ago the Pensacolawas condemned at the
Mare Island yard. She WAS brought to tbo
Atlantic and sent on a three years' cruise , and
only recently received the repairs that tbo offi
cials in California said were necessary when
she was there. Charges are higher at Mare
Island than at private yards on the Pacific
coast , A coast survey official had a vessel
taken there for repairs. She needed but little
work , yet the Mare Island oflicials wanted
$5,000 , The work was performed by a pri-
vatfl company for 81,500.
"In the proposed re-organization the secre- , j
tary .vill manage to dispense with the servj.- t |
ces of ta many bosses. The yards are full of
master this and master that and they all get
$0 per day whether they work or not. Four
hours IB a days work In some Instances , A
ail maker went from Boston to one of the
ards and began working eight hours n day.
Ho was told to labor less tjmoj that ho could
'ot bo allowed to accomplish to much work. "

The commissioner of agriculture to-day re-
eived a long tolegam from John Clay , jr. ,

lose to leave the public trail and drive across

Attorney-General Garland baa given an
