higher than yoatcrday , with ctill higher

cauws assigned for the later advance was a

pects of war and .1 severe drought in southern

compelled a few of the bast buyers in those
markets to come to Chicago in order to fill
their orders. This demand , In addition to
some improvement in the local account , had
the elTect of stimulating values , , which were
to-day 15@20a higher on the ordinary run of

native stock shows nn advance , and oven
Teians wore a big 10c higher. Of the latter
the receipts have dwindled down to thirty

during the past eight or ten days that all con. .

EASTSAOINAW , Mich. . July 17.-Every
thing quiet this morning and the situation is
unchanged , No additional mills started up
BAY CITY , Mich , , July 17. No particular
change in the situation to-day , from that of
last evening. All works running yes
terday , continue to-day. Dirda.ill &
Barker's salt blok started to-day at the tame
pay and terms as before the strike. The
militia made a parade last evenln , through
the streets Hoed with people , The best feel-
iog prevails between the citizens and soldiers.
Too strikers have come down to the Idea that
Interference with the establishments desiring
to run will not ba tolerated , and It has been
abandoned ,
Tbo departure of fifty two of Pinkerton's
men from Sapinnw City last n'ght was duo to
the fact tluttlm mill owners are paying oil the
men and making preparations for a long rest ,
and do nnt cnro to incur the expense of main
taining 1'lnkertou'a foice. Koity-clght Pinkerton -
kerton men ara still retained here. The men
of Hamilton , IWcChuo & Co , , whoso mill has
been running , were intimidated last night nnd
declined to go to work this morning , hence
the mill is apaiu shut down , and will not bo
started until the strike is over.
It is reported that the mon employed in the
saltworks qf 12 F. Gould , at Carrollton ,
which has been in operation , were driven out
of the works this morning by the strikers
armed with clubs. The works were shut
down and turned over to the sheriff . State
militia are employed in guarding the water
works and other property. The report has
gone out that the average wages paid the mill
employes waa only § 1.25 per day. Investiga
tion of the pay rolls of tha mills shows this to
bo a mistake , nnd the average pay to be 81.75
per day. Ttoro Is no talk of concession on the
part of either employes or workingmen ,
Myer' mill starts to-morrow morning on
the following terms : Stoppages occur occa
sionally in all mills ; the men go to work ten
hours at full pay. If a mill stops , the lost
time will bo charged to the men , and at the
end of the month they will maVn it up with
out pay. The agreement is entirely satisfac
tory to bith sides. This gives ground to the
hope that the plan may be generally adopted.
ELDORA , Iowa , July 17. Buckeye town
ship , this county , is all agog with excitement
in consequence of a unique and horrible trag
edy enacted last night at a farm house four
miles from this place. Miss Grace Rand , a
beautiful girl , nineteen years of age , was : i
member of the family of George Johnson , a
farmer , whoso wife was her eister. The
ladies customarily occupied ono bed in the
second story of the house , while Johnson and
the hired man slept together down stairs.
List night tbo family retired as usual , Mrs.
Johnson with her sister and the two mon
a room on the first floor. Miss Rand foil
leop quickly and just as Mrs. Johnson had
early lost consciousness die was aroused by
ma one approaching the bed. It was her
usband. He leaned over the bad , kissed
or affectionately , bade her good niuht , and
ft the room. Immediately after her hus-
and bad gone Miss Johnson was attracted by
range movements made by her sister. Put-
ng her hand againit the girls fne , she was
rror-strlcken to feel the blood gushing from ,
or sister's throat. A moment later the girl ,
rithtng In the agony of death , rolled from
10 btd to the floor. Mrs. Johnsod struck a
ght and discovered the girl lying dead ,
> r throat cut from ear to ear. The hired
man came in answer to her screams : and in-
; antly started to alarm the neighbors. When
to nearest arrived , Johnson too was found
ying near tbe door with a broad gash in his
iroat and a blnody razor lying beside him.
As the coroners Investigation has only
ist begun no hoory has been brought to
? ht in opposition to the ono generally held ,
mely , that Johnson who had violently ap-
osed her approaching marriage to ayoung
nan of the neighborhood , loved his flater-in-
aw and In insane jealousy murdered her and
ook hia own life.

In reply to a letter from Gen. Howard
to Gen. Schofiold , division commander ,
asking him to allow the Omaha troops to

probable that the transfer will bo made

"It's strange to me , " said an army
oflicor to n reporter to-day , ' 'that yon
nowepapor people don't have something
to ( . oay about the Ninth cavalry jast de
tailed ! for service in this department. The
Ninth civalry Is composed of the first
colored troops over In the department of
the Platto. The experiment of thnlr In
troduction has sacceuded admirably.
"There are a great many people , " con
tinued the army oflicor. "who Imagine
that the colored man does not make
as bravo a soldier as does the white man.
Thii idea ia radically wrong , as Is proven
by the record of the Ninth. The black
mon are hard fighters and conragoous to
the latt extremity. They can always bo
depended upon , too. a
The Ninth cavalry have been well re
ceived ! by the people of Nebraska so far
as they have gone. Very Httlo or no
race prejudice haa been exorcised against
"There is another thing that Is re
markable about the colored soldiers they
rarely or never got drank. On pay day ,
Instead of going off and filling up they ,
content thom.solvos with purchasing un
limited amounts of pastry cake , pies
and tarts or candy. These they take
off in secluded places and Indulge them
selves to an unlimited extent.
"Yes , the colored troops , of conrso are

think the introduction of the Ninth Into

thing for the department , "

( V St to of Igivnrnnuo Unoqttnlcil In
tlio United StAtes
A reporter for the BKK callad on Senator -
ator Chnrles S. Mandorsou , at his roomer
in : the Billiard hotel last evening , to leant
something from him about his recent trip
down Into Now Mexico , that will prob
ably , everything considered , bo of nioro
aim lets general interest jast now , Inas-
inuch as there has boon nioro or less talk
wlthtn the past few years of admitting
that territory to the union. Senator
Mnndorioii la a member of the United
States tonalo oomraittoo on tsrritorlos
nnd also on land claims. Whllo
aihi visit to Now Mexico at this
time naa not an nlliclal one , ntlll
he . mode quite an investigation Into
the ntato of alLure down thcro ,
itnd will report hla observations
b the ccjamlttos when coougrcoa convenes
next Docoinber. Bel ro entering Into
uiy detailed Btory of the senator's jour *
tiny , it may bo remarked that ho will
llseourago the Idea of admitting Now
Mexico ai a state In her present condi
tion of ignorance and un-Ainerlcnnl/.dd
customs. Said Mr. Mandnraon , there ia
IK other aeotion of the United States
that embraces as much illiteracy
among Its people as docs this
territory called Now Mexico. The popu
lation , numbers about 125,000 , and fully
100,000 of thai number are of the Mexi
can or Spanish races. Of tills 100,000 ,
COOf per cent are lllorato , Ignorant slaver ,
living , moving and having their being , In
11Pi stratified condition , that la absolutely
plttlful. Of COIHO there are educational
facilities In the territory , but they
can only bo enjoyed by the wealth
ier classes , who are able
tc pay exorbitant prices for
the * enlightenment of their children ,
tlcc ? educational facilities are under the
control and [ { conduct of the Oathollo
ohuich. \ The American people , however ,
who live in Now Mexico , are enterprising
and well to do , but tney don't coem ,
many of them at least , to bo particularly
anxloas about Insisting on having the
territory admitted Into the union as a
state just yet awhile. The fair ctlioo
Bookers , who are there would like to have
itVI done very much , but they are not yet
very numerous.
Whether the territory should bo ad
mitted as a state or not , It is in such con
dition that congress mast look aftar It ,
probably more than has over been done
before , and attempt to elevate the people
to a state of onllghtmont that will admit
of their becoming a state In the union.
The senator thinks that this end will
probably have to bo reached through
a system of common schools
and compulsory education , under the
control and Boppoit of the government.
If there la a country nndor the tun , de
clared Senator Mandorson , that Is In .
need of compulsory education , that conn-
try is New Mexico. Not only are the
great majority of the foreign clement IK
literate and Ignorant , but they live llko
anlmala , subsist on very little rough food
and go clad In the brhfont kind of attire.
"It was very funny and remarkably Inter
esting , " nald SenatorMandenon , "boncto
the aifferonca between thoao old adobe
towns and the now American towns that
have sprung up within the past few years
about railroad stations. The old City of
Mexico was an interesting place for the
Bon&tor and Mrs. Mondoraon who accom
panied him. They vidtod the cathedral
that Is 250 years old , and marked evi
dences of habitations that existed there
'ong ' before Plymouth Rock or Jamea- >
own , were awakened from tnolr sleep of
olltudo by the eounds of civilization.
nho surface of the country , however ,
ooked now as though It had been mode
Ithln the past century or two. In ad-
Itlon to a general Inspection of the
ountry and the people , Senator Mander-
on also in ado some Investigations into
many of the claims that have for years
"icon a source of an annoyance , trouble ,
nd agitation to congress. Those claims ,
r most of them at least , originated nndor
ho treaty made forty yean ago for the
orrltory , the moat Important of which la
hat known as the McGarrnhan claim ,
'ho ' senator and his wlfo vhrilcd tho.
mnous Laa Vagc shot springe , which have
cen undo by the Santa Fo railroad
ompany a moat delightful , attractive-
nd charming place. The Now Monta
uma hotel , is ono of tbo finest hostlorlcs
n the country , but , for come raason , or
thor , it is not crowded with guests thin.
In about two weeks Senator Mnndor-
on and Senator Vest of Missouri , start
on a trip , out through Oregon , Wyom
ing , Washington and Dakota territories ,
which trip will include a visit ; to and in
