August 2,1. [ Special Telegram to the
UIE. ] The report received here yester
day that Colorow and his band were .sur
rounded nnd wanted peace Is denied to-day.
It appears from reports just received that
Colorow has the mllltta surrounded * near
Coyote Basin and Is dictating terms to the
troops. He emphatically declares that If the
militia does not go back there
will bo able fight. Ho positively refuses to
return to Ulntah agency , and says he will
die before ho will leave the White River
country. Captain Lnwson , who left Camp
Adams last nleht with telegrams for General
Reardon , had a narrow escape. The Indians
attacked him and tired several shots. His
horse wore nut , and In attempting to escape
no stumbled nnd throw him Into the brush
where ho remained until morning and then
made his way to Meeker. If an engagement
can bo averted until Governor Adams and
Colorow have a pow wow the trouble may
be settled but If the hot-headed cowboys and
Inexperienced militia push a light upon the
Indians before this a long and bloody war
may be expected.

Beer Causes a Clash of Authority.

Cronoy and Constable Jordan , of Oskaloosa ,
arrested for refusing to permit Revenue 0Ul
cer Klrkpatrlck to see certain kegs of beer In
their possession , came up before United
States Commissioner Jordan yesterday and
was decided to-day. It appears that the con
stable had made a seizure of beer , bringing
the cases Into Justice Croney's court. Klrk
patrlck went to Crouoy and asked to see the
kegs , saving that ho understood they were
not properly stamped. Croney and Jordan
both put him otf nnd Iinally refused to lei
him see the beer unless ho could show hi
authority. Marshal Ktheridge was adrlfed
nnd arrested the parties. The defense argues
that no refusal was made , ana that beer In
thu hands ot a court is not taxable , therefore
the olllcer had no right to Inspect It. Com-
mlsaloner Jordan toolc the cose under advise
ment and to-day discharged both ot the

Georgia's Penitentiary Convicts
U hipped In a Terrible Manner.
ATLANTA , Ga. , August 20. [ Special Tele
gram to the BKE.I The convict lease system
of Georgia appears to be doomed. By an ex
ecutive order , signed under great excitement ,
General Gordon has called on the lessees ot
penitentiary companies No. 2 and 3 to show
cause why their leases should not bo an
nulled. Thcso companies are principally
formed of James W. English , William B.
Loire and James M. Smith. Several days
ago the governor received an anonymous
letter signed "Convicts , " which declared that
the1 convicts were being whipped because
they made known the existing abuses , and
asked that the matter bo Investigated. From
the postmark It was ascertained that the let
ter came from the camp under the charge of
C. C. Blngham , on the Georgia Midland road.
Principal Keeper Towers at ouco proceeded
there , hud the men called up In line and
sttlpped of their clothing. The backs of four
men were found to be cut and bruised lu a
terrible manner , as though knives had been
used to open the lltish. Governor Gordon
read tlio report with Indignation aud at
once signed an order dismissing Bingham
from any service tn which the state was
Interested nnd ordering the solicitor gen
eral to prosccuto him for bis crimes
Active steps are being taken to protect the
convicts from the rage of the lessees , and It
Is said that Principal Keeper Lovers took
personal charge of camp No. 2. The sup
pressed repoit of Prison Physician Wast-
inorolnmi , which was nude to Governor Me-
Daniel In 18 % ) , and which the governor would
lot allow to bo made public , was yesterday
Iven to the press. It Is a shocking recital
.f tilth and crime , nnd will help to swell the
demand for the abolition of the leasn system.
There Is no doubt as to the governor's Inten-
Ion to declare the lease annulled , owlne to
.he violation of its provision by the lessees.
The lessees are making strenuous efforts to
avert the blow which Is falling upon them ,
but the governor Is determined In his course ,
jacked by thi public opinion of the state and
ndoised by personal assurances of members
if the legislature. The Dade coal mine
: amp , which belongs to company No. 1 ,
jwued by Governor Brown , Is not complained -
plained of , but It will have to share In the

Tto Manner In Which It In Profiting
By the Low Price of Cattle.
CHICAOO , August 20. ( Special Telegram
; o th BEE. I "ThoDressed Beef King ; How
t has ProtUed bv the Low Price of Cattle , " Is
.ho . heading of a sensational article In
o-day's Tribune. It says : "It Is assumed In
many quarters that a beef famine Is not far
away. Estimates as to the destruction of cat-
le In the northwest last winter are that In
Montana there were about 400,000
liead. In Idaho about 100,000 , In
iVyomlng about 300,000 , In Colorado
about 50,000 , or 850,000 head In all. During
, he summer , on account ot the excessive
drought , the estimated losses in beef produc-
ng states , such as Illinois , Iowa , Ohio , Mis
souri , Kansas and In New Mexico , Texas ,
Nebraska , Minnesota and Dakota , swell the
otal to 1,500,000 head of beeves. Many as-
iert , however , that these ( inures are far too
ileb. But this Is not the main fact which In
dicates a future famine. It Is now known
hat from 50 to 75 per cent less of calves were
born this spring than Is usual , owing to cli
matic causes , which must have Its effect In
time. To this must be added the fact that
cattle producers have boon rushing tholr sur
viving stock on the market at an unparalleled
rate , and that from these and other causes
many ranchmen are discouraged , und are
going out ot business. A great uneasiness ,
such as never before characterized the cattle
business , Is manifest In business circles. The
market prlco has been low on account of the
glut , for In Chicago alone over 200,000 head of
cattle have been thrust on the market during
the last thirty days. Only the commission
man with his hands full of business seems
nappy. The stockyards were never In a state
of greater activity. The receipts in a single
day have been 13,500 head of cattle , the
largest known. The yards are overflowing
with stock , money is tn great demand and
nrlces are regulated to tha necessity for cash
of the producer. While some beeves are In a
line condition , the generality are thin and
thirst-starved stock. Reports of losses by
drought in the Panhandle region of Texas
of 5UO head per day cause much concern
amone southwestern men. Sam Allerton
says theru was a general loss of from 50 to 00
per cent on all cattle north of the PI at to
river and predicts disaster to the vast ranch
Interests ot the northwest unless the admin
istration changes Its methods of dealing with
The article continues : "Ono thing that
Impresses the consumer Is that he gets beef
no cheaper because the producer sells
It for so little. Who Is it gets the bin sum In
between the price paid by the producer and
the consumer ? It Is hinted bV ranchmen
that It la the dressed beet monopoly. The
1 ntcr-.stato commereo laws have no terrors
for these dressed beet men. The low price
of bent Is their opportunity. It they fall to
keep beef down they will quickly purchase
all that is offered for future delivery. These
monopolists lash both sides , producer and
consumer alike. They make fortunes on all
this panic among cattlemen. On every bull
ock there Is a profit of SIO to the dressed beef
monopoly and either a loss or an even thing
for the producer. The consumer pays the
monopoly the extra 110 profit. "
WHAT A DIIKSSED 1IEEP MAN SAYS.
NKW YoitK , August 20. Ono of the promi
nent dressed beef men In this city said to-day
regarding the sentiment printed by a Chicago
cage paper that a beef famine was eminent :
"There Is no probability of any beef famine ,
as the market Is largely overstocked now. Thu
Immense overstock Is duo largely to the
fact that more men are raising cattle
than ever before. Three or four years are
the price of beef was very much higher than
It Is now and there was a biz rush Into the
cattle raising business. The result Is now
shown. There are too many people engaged
In cattle raising , and the prlco lias been
put so low there Is no money
In It. The rush now Is to get
out and In consequence they can't get good
prices , in a few years history will very
probably bo repeated. As I think the price
will KO up again when fewer cattle nre
brought to market It is also true that a
good many cattle are In poor condition , but
at the same time there Is plenty of good beef
in the market.
Major Handbury of the V. 8. Engi
neers Expresses His Opinions.
CHICAGO , August 20. Referring to the re
cent call Issued froiuPeorla for a convention
to consider improvements In the Illinois
river and connecting lake Michigan with the
Mississippi river , Major Handbury of the
United States engineers said to-day : "It Is
a right movement and I hope It will be pro
ductive ot good results. What Is now
wanted Is an appropriation to connect the
river with the lake and thereby
complete a navlgablo w-torway the
Importance of which cannot be
overestimated. The only fear I have of Its
defeat Is that the politicians who are riding
the Honnepln hobby will not permit It to go
through without being saddled with their
pet schemes. If they would only have the
good sense to hold oir a little It would be all
the better for them , for the llennepln canal
can never b < a success until this connection
with the lake U established ; that Is the iirst
thine to be done. " . ,
Really , " continued Major Handbury , "I
think the citizens are right In taklnc up this
matter. It concerns not only the state of Illi
nois but all the states bordering on the Mis
sissippi , either one of which will bo beno-
fitted by the successful outcome of the pro
nold to the Grand Jury.

DEFEATED IN THE COMMONS.
Gladstone's Besolutfon Negatived By a
Vote of 272 to 104 ,
GENERAL DEBATE INDULGED IN.
Ilarconrt Thlnka the Government
Wl hes to Strike the League
Becomes It IB Becoming
The Resolution Negatived.
LONDON , August SO. In the commons to
night Sir George O. Trovelyan , one of the
late Gladstonelto recruitsresumed the debate
on Gladstone's motion , lie said the late
government did not ask the commons to
pus the Irish crime * bill on hearsay , but
that they based tholr demands on parliamen
tary returns ot grave outrages that had boon
committed 7,780 , outrages during the pre
vious year and twenty-six agrarian an d
political murders during the llrst half ot the
year. Sir George contended that the house
should have tabulated statistics of crime In
Ireland and that to mention ono crime
hero and another crime there was
'not sufllc.lent to justify such
action as the government was now taklnc
against the whole Irish people. He denied
that the general operations of the Irish Na
tional league Increased the crime In Ireland
or led to general non-payment of rent Let
thn house understand , he continued , that If
the proclamation of the league Is sanctioned
every Irishman who will not leave It at the
command of the government will be liable to
be punished as a common criminal and ttiat
liability will not depend on any judicial pro
ceeding worthy of the name. In conclu
sion he complained that the statements made
by Italfour , chief secretary for Ireland , and
only given out last night , left no time for ex
amination of their character.
Sir K. E. Webster , attorney general , held
that the reason why th re wore not more
convictions for crime In Ireland was simply
because of the terror of the league. lie re
minded the house that Earl Spencer's gov
ernment had repeatedly proclaimed the laud
league meeting and that Sir George Trev-
elyan had supported thosn proclamations on
the ground that the objects ot the land
league were to put down landlordism
and to ollect a separation between Ireland
and England. The objects of the existing
league , said the speaker , were ttio same. The
government would now try the experiment
whether sunpieuslon of the leagun meetings
would not lessen Intimidation. They were
told this would bo a death struggle. Well ,
either the league or the government would
T. Harrington said the league would eo on
doing what It had done In spite of the procla
mation , which bad no terrors for the Irish
JLord Hartlngton , replying to Sir George
Irevelyan , said In substance that RS far as
the notion of an association was wholly polit
ical It could not be condemned , but If the
action of an association destroyed the
liberty of the people and subverted order and
good government It did not maUer.what the
supposed motives of the association were.
It was enough that Its action
wi\s \ hostile to social order. The house had
already decided that Intimidation prevailed
preventing persons from pursuing their law
ful occupations. It was not the duty ot the
government to lay before parliament the In
formation desired by the opposition. The
crimes act was now a part of the law. The
action was taken by the government as an
executive. It was not necessary to produce
evidence In support ot executive acts. Ho
believed that the league's aim was spoliation
and Injustice , and that Its methods were in
defiance of law.
Sir William Vernon Harcourt said Lord
Hartlngton's support of the government was
certainly not of the most cordial character.
Ills concluding argument was weak because
this executive act would have actually per
ished unless It had parliament's ap
proval. The government wanted to strike
the league because It was Inconvenient
to them , adverse to their political opinions
and to the pecuniary Interest ) of the class
they represented , and It was characteristic
ot them that the lirst person struck was an
Irish member of parliament and editor of an
Goscheu argued that the league was the
outcome ot the growth of the Land 16ague ,
which the liberals had proclaimed. There
was nothing in any country of the world
that could equal the fearful system of es-
polnago carried on under the auspices of the
Mr. Dillon : "I utterly deny that a system
of espotnage Is carried on by the league. "
Goschon : "Then I should like to know
how everything happened to be brought to
the knowledge of the local branches of the
league , Amulo evidence has proved the ex
istence of a system for Indicting material
ruin and moral death on many Individuals.
It Is not surprising ihat tho. gov
ernment la unable : to trace the
connection of the league with outrages when
large bodies of men are able to commit out
rages and leave no clue to their Identity.
There Is strong erounds to suspect that a
powerful organization Is behind them.
llealey , who ended the debate , counselled
the Irish people to have confidence in the
good Intentions of the English people and to
wait patiently , abstaining from violence.
Mr. Gladstone's resolution was negatived
273 to 194.
It was stated to-night that the Government
Intends to propose on Monday a modulation
of the cloture rule with a view to expediting
the passage of the supply bill.
The English Wheat Crop.
LONDON , August 80. The London Times
says about the English crops : Wheat comes
out as the best crop ot the year , as was to bo
expected. It is not so great a crop , however ,
as a few weeks ago a few enthusiasts were
hoping for. The cold winter and sprint , and
thn absenceof rain when the plant was
young , were bound to have tholr eifect , and
thus It happens that in wheat tlio crop ,
though food , Is not an extraordinary one.
Wo may put wheat as producing a crop of a
little over 9,000,000 quarters. This will leave
us dependent on foreign supplies nt least 17-
000,000 and probably IU.000,000 quarters , for
It must not bo forgotten that the shortness ol
the potato crop will cause a greater demand
than usual for broadstults.

A Tremendous Change.
LONDON , August 20. In an Interview
to-day Gladstone. In reply to a question as
to whether he expected to beat the govern
ment to-night , said : "No ; we can't exper
to do that , but the fact that a year ace the
government majority was 110 , while now the
most sanguine conservative only anticipates
a majority of sixty on proclaiming the
league , shows what a tremendous change
has come over the face of the country. "

to the BEE. | The McGarlgle escape , by
which the county jail lost ono of Its most
eminent citizens and Canada gained another
expert money handler , has already begun to
fade away from the busy public mind , and
as It slowly gains nge little things are de
veloping which make the story of the escape
more complete. The ono Chicago man who
followed McGarlgle as a friend and commis
sioner from his wife to Canada and held a
long conversation with him , was ox-Alder
man J 1m Appleton. The siory of Apploton's

facts In this trip were told , however , by Appleton -
ploton himself In a burst of confidence to-day
and are published at leneth to-ulght. Among
other things Appleton says McGari.lo said
to him :
