who settled on the Crow Cieek and Wlnnc-
hngo Indian icscrvallon In Dakota between
Februaryi7and : April 17 last , under the
provisions ofn pioclamatioii Issued by Presi
dent lithnr , Ihiowlng the ip civntion open
to settlement , and who Avcre compelled to
move oil of Ihe settlement1 * they nlado by n
proclamation Issued on the latter date by
Pccstdent Cleveland , revoking the founcr
pioclamatioii , will IK-paid for the looses they
sustained. Kver sluco the invocation of
Piesldeut Aitliui'spioclamallon , the sulTer-
rrs from It have been appealing to tlio pi evi
dent nud interior dcp.iilincnt for
icllef. They say they made entiles
on the icservntlon In good fnith ,
hnv ing n perfect right to do so under the first
proclamation , nnd that two months after-
want , when they had just . ' ( ot , settled In their
new homes thcyweic foielbly driven away ,
vvheieby they lost all Ihey expended for their
buildings , fences , etc. , nud the sacrifices they
made in leaving their old homes , since 11 was
by deception o i the patt of Ihe government
and an older over which Ihey had no eon-

very naturally concluded the troveinment
would lelmburse them.

A Battle Between tlio Policemen and Strik
ing Hungarians One of the Dis
turbing Element Killed.
I'tTTsnvnn , Jnn. 20 , A dispatch from
Mount Pleasant to-nlgljt says : ShcilIT Stew
art and forty deputies , nnd Detective Bropliy
nnd twenty armed polifo from Pittsburg , had
a desperate conflict th B aftcinoon with iBO
strikers , who had attacked the men at the
Alice works in the moinlng. The iloters
rested for dinner. Then they massed at the
Mutual woiks , near Sloncrville. At this
point a negro , without pro\ocatlon , fired at
the Hungarians with a shot gun , but failed
to hit any of them. They surrounded his
house , dragged him out , boat him fearfully
and left him for dead , with his skull frac
tured. Ilo will probably die.
At1 ! o'clock the.stilkcrspassed up toward
Morowoort , llouilshiug every manner of
weapon Irom lovolvcrs to case serapeis.
They wcie headed by Stephen Stamix , main
agitator of the strike. When they readied
shaft A , Morewood mines , they cncouiitcied
sixty-two deputy sheriffs and policemen
drawn up for battle. Detective Biopliy talked
to the foreigners , telling them It wns useless
to icslst , and that ho would arrest the ling-
leaders , liiophy arrested one striker , which
opened the ball. The combat was hand-to-
hand , but the olllccis won , anestlng tlilitecn
men nnd one woman , who were sent to jail
at Gioeinllle. The balance retreated. Over
n hundred shots woie filed and several Hun-
Kalians injincU. How many ts not known ,
as thoyweio c.uiicd away by companion * .
Only one olllccr was slightly hint. The
authorities , it is stated , telegraphed to Pitts-
burg lor more olllcd * . The strike is only in-
nuguialcdnnd moio bloodshed Is feared ,
Tills strike Is undoubtedly the most dan-
ecious In the history of the coke country.
Tlio operators have an entirely different class
of men to deal with , as Hungarians when
drunk ate unmanagnbloand mote like fiends
than men. In loimcr bliiUes this element
was not In the field , and the operators had
more intelligent men to deal with. A leellng
of insccuiity prevails and citizens near the
vaiious tlneatencd districts are arming them
selves and otherwise pieparing to defend
their homes as best they may.
A dispatch at midnight says It is thought
one Hnngniian killed in the fialil with
tlio police this afteinoon. A special train
lelt Giecnsbiug tliis evening with the
prisoneis guaidcd by policemen. A
liot Is also icpoited to have occuiied
at the Donni'lly and Diamond works , al)0ut )
tlneo miles east of Mount Pleasant , in which
live Hnncaiians and three Ameiioans were
Injured. The condition of allaiis at mid
night is pood. A special train has just nr-
ilvcd at St.uidatd , with a police lorce , which
will bo used tonight to aireit some men
charged w'lth assault.
STOXKVIM.H , Pa.-Jan : 20. The situation
assumed an alarming phase in tlio coke re
gions tills moi ning. Three bundled strikers ,
armed with bars , coke-Jorks and revolvcis ,
stalled on a march. Thcydto\c tlio men
fiom woilc at the Alice , and chaiged the
wardeiibol tliecoko. yard at a place a mile
southwest of heio. A boy named Meurer
was tenibly beaten , and a yard uoss ham
mered. Every o\en tiont was crushed in.
The greatest trouble Is yet to come. Satur
day will bo pay-day , aim on Monday ten days
will have expired since the notice to quit had
been given to the strikois in the company
houses. Thcie will likely be serious trouble
when ejectment Is attempted. The rcpoit
that the governor has Ijecn.called on for aid
is nntiue. The sherilTtwIll not send until lie
finds himself uiuibldtoi cope with the dis-

and consequently the contiactois who cin-
iiloycd fieo laboi could not alfoid to compcto

In otreilnplhc resolution , Mr. Hole said

In the conn I ly , Ilo did not believe that lice

The ipsolulloti was azreed to.
Mr. Moirlll addicted the senate on the
silver question. He picuilsed with the ro-
niaik that the elaborate speech of the senator
fiom Kentucky ( Buck ) seemed to throw the
buiden of the lojolnder on the tnoiids of the
ndmlnlstiatlon. I do not mean , lie continued ,
tocncmacli upon the pilvileges which so
many democratic senators appear so eager to
enjoy of rushing totluucscuo ofthe piesulcnt
and the becrcmry ol the tipasiny , against
whom the ciuel ittack is made , upon tlio
cnidinal mcasuia ot the ndmlnistiiitiun , us
1 know the fate oL those who ventuic to In-
li'ileio with family miaueK But this
measure , thiongli w lilch sliver might bo main
tained on a par with gold , is so wet thy of all
accppllon that I fear It will not have , after
the heat of demonstration , an acknowledged
leadci of his patty In tlio btato asaiusl it , or
thai unanimous suppoit to which it may be
laiily entitled. In the first place , let me say
there are no pai tie * , so far as 1 know , in the
senate or out of it , that pioposeor h.x\o any
wisli to deinoiipti/.o It , for to cluuceotheiwiso
is a baseless assumption and unwoithy ol the
aicna of fair debate. K\eryboily is willing-
nay anxious to kpcp ns much of silver as
can bo done and keep it at the bamo time nt
par with our gold coinage. Tlio only hostility
aiisesiiom whathociiis to ho a mixed and
passionate puiposo on tlie pai tot some ot
its advocates to promote such an
exceas of silver coinacn as will drive cold
out of the countiy , anil IP.IVC our vast tiadu
and commciee based upon sliver only. In
reaching ; tills position ot .silver inoiiomct-
nllsin , it is impossible to 1)3 ) blind to the dN-
nbtioits contraction ot the piteulating mpdi-
um of the country that would at once occur ,
tor when tlie moment anivcs that gold com
mands a premium it will beheld as a rom-
modlty for. sale , not chuulaUng on n small or
0 per cent premium , beine : as pioducthoof
universal hoaiding at Sopor cent , and no
possiblondvantaso to our people could bo ex
pected Irom following the lame and fpcblo
example of India or Me\Ico in utill/.ing sil
ver currency only.
Mr. Morrlll insisted that theio wns no war
upon silver , but liom the substance andel-
fect ol the declaiation of wai that bait been
made upon gold by the leader ol the demo
cratic patty in the senate , liom the plcasuip
which the senator Irom Kentucky had
evinced In delivering in tlio senate his an
tagonism to tlio piesident nnd scciotaiyof
the tieasuiy , it seemed to Mr. Moriill that
that senator had been for the moment under
a delusion. He was still belaboring with
left-handed compliments some republican
picsident and secretary , but Mr. Monill
could look on with compostne , confident as
lie was ot the suivival of the fittest. His
( Morrlll's ) convictions that continued coin
age of largo amounts of silver would drive
nil gold out ot the conutrv , was based on the
expeiieneo of all clvlll/ca people that inferioi
money never failed to expel superior , and
tlio fact that our own silver mines furnished
moie than one-half of thu annual silver yield
01 the woild.
Mr , Moirlll denied that there had been any
failure on the part of the treasury ollicials to
comply with the laws regaiding the applica
tion of the money recehcd Irom custom
duties. It would not bo contended , ho f aid ,
by anjbody , except , poihaps , the senator
1 10111 Kentucky , that as each piece of money
was iccelved at a custom house it was to bo
branded and set apait in a sppauto eompait-
nient. If it was in the ticasmy , that was
enough. By the repoit of the United States

.Mr , Beck said tobtoptho coining of silver
money in oulcr to make MT ! money moio

Into flour in outer to make mom value. The
pmposo was to suspend it now and never

by bondholder * nnd for bomlholdcis. Mr.
Beck gave notice that in duo time ho. would
icply to Mr. Morrill's speech.
ifr. Morrlll said that Mr. Beck's reply re
minded him of tlie sloiy of boy who ciled
when his mother whipped him , nnd when
asked by his mother why ho cried so much
hauler than had been lift custom on similar
occasions , replied , "because , mother , I sco

Mr. Teller denied the slatPiupiit by Mr.
Moriill to the olTcct that IOT.,000,000 of the
21UOO,003 silver dollars nlicndy coined could
not bo got Into cliculntton. That statement
bad been mndobythc pieMdetitamlsccrctniy
ol Ilie tioasury , and had not been made by
accident , nnd so far ns the treasury otllclals
WPIO coucci nud it wns Intended to mislead
nnd had misled the people. By the tame
piocess nf lo lo it could be asserted that SSV- !
000.000 of gold In the trcasmy could not bo
put Into circulation. The government , Mr.
Teller said , had made 52i , OiWoot , ) piolit on the
coinage of silver. The talk of the BOVPUI-
iiu-nt lo'lntr moncv in silver colnaeo wasall
bosh. Mi. McPhcisou p\pnM ed lilm clf in
ta\or ot ai much silver coin us would keep It
on a par with gold , and argued that Messrs ,
Teller and BOCK , and the i > poplo of their way
of thinking , weiepudcavoiluglo bilng the
countiy to a silver basis.
Mi. Beck said the people of the west bail
shown fheir confidence In silvei' . Tlu-vhiul
sent east ( iO.DOO.OOO gold dollais and took sil
ver cpitllicalos lor them , sustained by silver
aloni' , until the treasury slojipcd It.
Mr. McPhornou asked il M r. Bivk meant to
say that all this vast amount of gold had
been sent to the tieasury ftom the east lor
the pui pose of potting sliver ccitlllcatcs ?
Mr. Beck said ho did.

Mr. Teller , in whose tlmiMiioit of the debate -

longer , and continued liNiemaiks. Heio-
pudiated the idea implied bj the gold advo

proceeded to deliver u speech in opposition

and dcchucd thai lite coinage and legal len

lalsooutciv that the people would notic-

in puisuanco of u gieat conspiracy formed ot
the bondholders , capitalists and monopolists

a matter ol seilous public conccin that the
