WASHINGTON , Jan. 20. [ Special Tele-
Cimn.l H is very piobable that the people
AV ho settled on the Crowd eck and Wlnnc-
bago Indian reservation In Dakota between
February"and April 17 last , under flio
provisions of a pioclamaiion Issued by Presi
dent Vitliur , thiowing Hie icservntlon open

move off of the f-etllemcnts they nTade by n
proclamation Issued on the latter date by
I'ecsldent Cleveland , revoking the former
] > toclamatlon , will be paid for the looses they
htistalned. Kver since the icvooatlqn of
J'icsldrnt Ailliur'.spioclamatlon , the sulfei-
rrs from It have hron appealing lo the picsl-
ilpnt and Interior depaitment for
lellef. They say they' nimlo entries
on the reservation In good fuilh ,
having a pci feet right to do so under the lift
proclamation , and that two mouths after
ward , when they had just got settled in tiieir
new homes they wcie forcibly driven away ,
whueby they lost all they expended for their
buildings , fences , etc. , and llio sacrllicc.s they
made in leaving their old homes , slncu it was
by deception 01 the pait of the government
and an order over which they had no con
trol. That they sustained their losses , thej1
vpry naturally concluded thu government
would K.niliir.-e : them.
To-day in the senate Mr. Harrison 10-
npondea to the appeals of these disappointed
settlers , and proposed an amendment to his
bill on ( ho subject of the division of Dakota
and the admission to statehood of the south
ern poition of it , which contemplates the
proper relief. The amendment provides that
for ninety days after thu passage of this act
these settlers may re-enter upon their claims
mid complete tlio same as required by law ,
nnd their claims shall for sucli a time have a
preference over later entries ; and when they
.shall In oilier respects have complied with
the law regulating such entries , especially
homesleadei.s , shall bo en Titled to liave .such
lands , and patents therefor shall be issued.
The money paid for pre-emption and
town site entiles shall bo such ns aio
jequiicd by law in other ca es , and shall
be paid into a geneial fund. The president
shall appoint n special agontnndpr the direc
tion of the fcccictaiy of the Interior who shall
as soon as piaclicablo make Inquiry and ic-
poit to tliosecictary ol the Interior upon the
claims for losses of pcrnoiis who in good
faith , between rVbrnaiy 27 and April 17,1SS3 ,
.settled upon any ol the landiin the Ciow

agent shall have power to cause witnesses to
come befoio him at some point convenient to

shall lepoit the Impiovemcnts made by such
poisons , the value of the bamo , the
losses bifclnlned by reason of the
revocation of the executive older
opening these lands to settlement , giving the

giam. ] A dailiiR robbery Hint would do
cicdlt to Iliu. Jes"e James pang occtnied on
the west side last night. Four men cntcicd
the jewchy store of Severn Bios , nt 775
Wcf-t Mndlson street. One of them asked
to see some watch charm1' . Henry Severn ,
who Is a young man about 23 years of ago ,
was alone In the stoiont the time , nnd in
response to the request placed n tray full of
chaims of nil descriptions befoio him.
Another ot the four asked lo see rings. As
bGAcrn piocccdcd to icach Into the case for
the tray of rings the Hist man
moved behind the counter between
two show cases , and , as the proprietor
attempted to tuin about to icscnt the Intru
sion ho was caught by the neck. A man In
fiont suddenly placed a revolver in close
proximity to his nose and a quiet but em
phatic command was given to icmaln per
fectly quiet and say not a word , unless ho
wished to give up his life with his jewels.
Tlio jeweler , taken completely by surprise ,
was unable to make a move to defend him
self. Tlio youngest man in the paity can led
a laigc bag on his arm and in a few moments
hcand his disengaged companion slipped be
hind the .show cases and completely
emptied them of watches , rings
and other valuables. Mr. Bcvcin
says ltdid not seem more than a minute and
ahalf befoitt the cases wcro cleaned out. Not
withstanding their haste , the men took noth
ing but tlie moil valuable , thus showing tliey
were no ordinary sneak-thieves and their
movements indicated that they had studied
up the ca = e in advance. When the booty was
seemed , the thief who still held tlie propri
etor by the linear , loosed his hold , nnd mov

covered the victim while the other three de
parted. Severn and his enforced vis-a-vis re
mained in this position tluee or four min
utes , when tlio last robber , cau
tioning the "joiing man to re
main where ho was for at least
live minutes , followed his companions. Sev
ern's confusion and astonishment canned him
involuntarily to a obey the injunction. As
soon as ho iccovered himself lie lan and gave
the alarm. A patrol was called , but by the
time the officers arrived no trace of the rob
bers could bo found. Tlie value of the pro
perty taken Is placed at 51,500. Severn is not
sure lie can Identify any of the lobbers. as his
attention was principally taken up by the

THE RIOTING COKE WORKERS ,
A Battle Between the Policemen nnfl Strik *
ing Hungarians One of the Dis
turbing Element Killed ,
PiTTinvno , Jan. 26. A dispatch from
Mount Pleasant to-nlglft says ! Sheiilt Stew
art and forty deputiesTiUd Detective Brophy
and twenty armed polijc from I'ltlsburg , Imd
a dcspernto conflict tli afternoon with 850
strikers , who Imd attacked the men at the
Alice works in the inornlng. The liotcis
rested for dinner. Then they nms&ed at tlio
Mutual works , near Slonervlllc. At tills
point a negro , without provocation , Hied at
the Hungarians with n shot gun , but failed
to hit any of them. They surrounded his
house , dragged him out , beat him fearfully
and left him for dead , with Ids skull frac
tured. Ilo will probably die.
At ! 5 o'clock tlio stilkcifl passed up tovvaid
Morcwood , nourishing every manner ot
weapon from revolvers to case scrapeis.
They were headed by Stephen Stamlx , main
agitator of tlie strike. When they reached
shaft A , Morewood mines , they cnconntcied
sixty-two deputy sheriffs and policemen
drawn up for battle. Detective Biophy talked
to tlie foreigners , telling them li was useless
to lesist , and that ho would arrest the ring
leaders. Brophy aircsled one striker , which
opened the ball. The combat was hand-to-
hand , but the otltccrs won , ruresting thhtccn
men and one woman , who were sent to jail
at Greenville. The balance retreated. Over
n handled shots weie fired and several Hun
garians injuicd. How many Is not known ,
as tliey weio can led away by companion" .
Only one oflleer was slightly hint. The
authorities , it is stated , telegraphed to Vltts-
burg lor nioreolHcors. The strike is only in-
nuguiated and moio bloodshed is feared.
This strike Is undoubtedly tlio most dan-
pprous in the history of the coke countiy.
The opcialors have an entirely different class
of men to deal with , as Hungarians when
drunk aie nnmanagabloau'imore like ( lends
than men. infoimcr strikes this element
was not In the field , and tlio operators had
more Intelligent men todcal with. A feeling
of Insecurity prevails mid citizens near the
various threatened districts me aiming them
selves and otherwise pieparlng to defend
their homes as best they may.
A dispatch at midnight says it is thought
oiio Hungarian was killed in the flight with
the police this afteinoon. A special train
left Giceiibburg this evening with the
prisoners guaidcd by policemen. A
riot is also reported to have occurred
at the Donnelly and Diamond works , about
tlneo miles east of Mount Pleasant , in which
live Hungarians and three Americans were
Injured. Tlio condition of allaiis at mid
night is good. A special train lias just ar-
ihcd nt Slandaul , with a police loice , which
will bo used tonight to aucst some men
chaiged With assault.
STONKVIM.K , I'a. , Jam 20. The situation
assumed an alarming phase In the coke re
gions tills moining. Three bundled strikers ,
armed witli bais , coke-forks and revolvcis ,
stalled on a inaicli. Theydiovo the men
from woik nt the Alice , and chaiged the
waidcnsof the coko. yard at a place a mile
southwest of here. A boy named Menrcr
was tpiribly beaten , and a yard boss ham
mered. Every oven front was crushed In.
The greatest tioubla Is yet to come. Satur
day will bu pay-day , and on Monday ten days
will have explied since the notice to quit had
been given to tlie strikers in the company
houses. Tlicio will likely be serious trouble
when ejectment Is attempted. The report
that the governor has Ijccn called on for aid
is untiuc. Tlie sherifftwill not send until ho
linds himself nnnbie.toi cope with the dis
turbed element. ( > ' *
The ClKarmakcr's Strike.
Nnw Youic , Jan. 20 , Nine thousand
cigarmakers and other employes ot the
trade , employed by the Cigar Manufacturer's
association , me idle to-day. Tlio diicct
cause of the trouble is the refusal of Levy
Brothers to declaio their strike against tiic
now uniform price lists off and return to

selves together to resist this demand. By to
morrow the packers in all tlie shops will have
to join tlie strikers. The strike extends to
the cigar box making trade. AV'hen the pack

.swelled to 10,000.
The cigar niamifactmeis this afternoon

made by the men are declined to be mislead

several cities as paying higher prices than

ment , but they have failed to say anything
about many other places wlieio prices

Mr. Mon 111 mldtr soil the senate on the
silver question. He promised with the re-
niaik that the elaborate speech of the senator
from Kentucky ( Heck ) seemed to throw the
buiden of thu lejoinder on the friends of the
administration. I do notmean , hecontlnued ,
tooncmacli upon the privileges which so
many democratic sonatois appear so eager to
enjoy ol rushing to the rescue of the president
and the secretary of the tieasuiy , against
whom the cruel jtack Is made , upon the
caullnal mcasutd of tha iulmlnlstiatlon , us
1 know the Into ol those who ventuie to in-
teileiovlth family quanels. Hut this
measure , tlnough which silver might bo main
tained on si par with gold , Is so worthy of all
deception that I fear it will not have , after
the heat of demonstiatlon , an acknovvledued
leader of his party In the slate against It , or
thai unanimous support to which it may be
laiily entitled. In the first place , let me say
thoicnro no pnitics , so larasl know , In the
senate or out ot it , that propose or iiavo any
wish to demonetl/e it , lor to chaigeothcivvlsu
Is a baseless assumption and unwoithy of the
aicna of ttur debate. Kverybody Is willing
nay anxious to keep ns much of silver as
can be done and keep it at the same time at
par with our gold coinage. Tlio only hostility
arises fioiu what seems to bo a mixed and
passionate puipose on the pait ol some of
its advocates to promote such an
excess of silver coinage as will drive cold
out of the countiy , and leave our vast ttade
and commeico based upon silver only. In
reaching tills position ot .sliver monomct-
nlisiii , it Is impossible to 1)3 ) blind to tiic dis
astrous contraction ot tiio circulating medi
um of the country that would at once occur ,
for when the moment anivestliat gold com
mands n premium it will beheld as u com

example of India or Mexico In iitlll/.Ins sil

Mr. Merrill insisted that tlieio was no war
upon silver , but tiom the substance aiidoi-
fect ot the declaration of vv.n that had been
made upon gold by the leader ot the demo
cratic paity in the senate , liom the plcasuip
which the sonatpr from Kentucky had
evinced in deliycring in the senate his an
tagonism to tlio president and secietaryof
thetieasnry it secnieit to Mr. Monill that
that senator had been for tlio moment under
a delusion. Ho was still belaboring with
Icft-liandi'd compliments some lepubllcan
piesidcnt and secretary , but Mr. Moirill
could look on with conipoainc , contidcnt as
ho was of the sin viral of the fittest. Ills
( Mori Ill's ) convictions that continued coin-
ace of largo amounts of silver would drive
all gold out of the countrv , was based on the
expeiicnco of all clvlli/.ed people that Infeiinr
money never failed to expel supciior , and
tile fact that our own silver mines furnished
moie than one-half of the annual silver yield
ot the woild.
Mr , Moil ill denied that there had been any
failure on the part ot the treasury olllcials to
comply with the law s legaiding the applica
tion of the money iccelved from custom
duties. It would not bo contended , ho said ,
by anybody , except , pcthaps. tlio senator
liom Kentucky , that as each piece ot money
was jecelveilatacustom liouso it was to bo
branded and set apait in a sepaiato coiupait-
ment. It it was in tlio tieasuiy , that was

It heio omsclves with any pialsowoithy

The senator from Kentucky ( Mr. Heck ) oC
couioo expect * to cany the ICmplio slate in
IbSS on his platfoihi. JJo is not himself
eligible as u candidate for the presidency.
The distinguished senator waves Ills banner ,
reckless ot the clouds without any sliver lin
ing which betoken the fate of any democratic
son of Now Yoik who may Fcelc to conquer
under that sign. The inevitable lesult ot
using silver inpayment ot tlio public debt
would bo to banish gold , or two-thirds of all

us with nothing but silver coinage. Our live
or six bundled millions of gold would soon

the experience of the woild shows cannot
easily bo ictraced.
Mr. Morilllcontendcil that the public faith
was pledced to the payment of tlie bonds ,
both principal and infeiest , In gold , and that
our credit would bo dishonoied by paying
them off in silver woithl'Jcents on the dollar
lar , and concluded as follows : "The fact that

tieasury. the Measurer , tlio dlioetor

jnccedlng , are all agreed in uiging congress
to cease ( lie picseut coinage ( if the silver

from Kentucky and his obedient tolloweis. "
.Mr , Beck said to stop the coining of silver
money In older to make silver money more
valuable was like stopping giinding wheat
Into Jlour in older to make moio value. The
pniposo was to suspend it now and never
lesumo coinage. The argument meiely
fallowed that silver was good enough lor

people , and the people would see It was not
turned Into n government of bondholders ,
by bondholder ? and for bondholdcis. Mr.
Deck gave notice that In duo time lie would
leply to Mr. MorrilPs speech.
Tifr. Merrill said that Mr. Heck's reply to-
minded him of the storv of t.io hey \vho etled

asked by his mother why lie cried so much
hauler than had been IIH custom on similar
occasions , icplled , "because , mother , 1 see

Mr. Teller denied tlio statement by Mr.
Monill to the elfect that 10.tKX,000 of the
aM.OOO.OOD silver dollars nlrcndy coined could
not begot into cliculatlon. Inat statement
had been made by the piesidentsind sccietaiy
ot the tieasuiy , and had not been made by
accident , and so far as the treasury otllclals
were couccined it was intended to mislead
and had misled the people. By the same
piocess of lo le. It could be asserted that SSW-
000,000 of gold In the tivasuty could not bo
put into eliculntion. The government , Mr.
Teller said , had made S20,000UOt ) ptotit on the
coinage of silver. The talk ol the eovein-
ment losing money in silver coinage wasall
bosh. Mr. Mcl'hcrioti c\ptes ed himself In
favor of as much silver coin us would keep It
on a par with gold , and tiigucd that Mes < i $ .
Teller and IJeck , and tlio people ot their way
of IhliiKliisr , weieendeavoilnglo biing the

Mi. Ju-ck said the people of tlie west Imd
shown their confidence in silver. They had
sent east OflK)0,000 ( ) gold dollaisnnd took sil
ver ceitltlcatcs for them , sustained by silver
alone , until the treasury stopped It.
Mr. McPhersoii asked it Mr. Uoek meant to
say that nil this vast amount of gold had
been sent to the tieasury from tlio east foi
the purposeof getting sliver ceillllcalesi'
Mr. Heck said ho did.
Mr. Mel'herson "Let mo tell the senator
exactly what was done. The senator knows
that lor a long time past there has been a
largo incieaso of the gold icseive in the
banks ot New York. They have been ap-
nichending exactly such trouble as Is now
being forced on the countiy by the continu
ance of silver coinage. WJmt do they do' . '
They have deposited their gold In the sub-
treasury at New Yoik. the original ccitill-
catc had been sent to tlio tieasuiy at
Washington , and sliver ccitlllcales
had been issued upon that and chaiged
against the silver upon 'leposlt In the tieas

Air. Teller , inwho.-c time mo-t of the de

Air. Symes of Coloiado , receiving lecognltion
ol tlio chair , stated that that was the picclso
bill he wished to talk about , and immediately
proceeded to deliver a speech in opposition
to the suspension of silver dollar coinage.
Jloiidlculed the nsscitlon made by the preil-
dent and seoietarv of the tieasury that the
silver dollar could not bo made tochculato ,
and declaied that the coinage and legal ten
der laws had been willfully violated by the
executive olllceis of the government. The
false ontciy that the people would notic-
cclve tlio silver dollar was made for the pur
pose of deceiving the people. It was made
in puisuanco of a gieat conspiiacy toinicd of
the bondholder : ) , capitalists and monopolists
of the money centers to demcncti/c one-half
of the metal money of tlio world , ami It was
