'or permitting its ofllclals to praetico such
ilgh handed outrages upon their rights.
L'hat thcso men nro justly indignant cannot
0 doubted , but the indignation of ROino of
_ ho inoro reckless members of the dlsnp-
( pointed band is talcing n turn that may oven-
lunlly bring trouble. They boldly assert that
as thogovcrnmunt docs not enforce the laws
that would glvi ) them protection , they will
hot submit to the law that denies them the
irlght to Jocato on the Cherokee strip. These
tterances , however , are not sanctioned by
he majority , but nro only mailo by men who
pro smarting under wrongs and disappoint-
Jionts nnd whoso tempers have been sorely
ncd by the hardships and deprivations they
mvo mot with In their honest efforts to iind
uios for themselves and families.
Another difllculty that confronts thcso do-
crmincd boomers is the opposition made by
he I'onca Indians to their settling on the
eservutlon. The Poncas uro few In num-
> crs now , disease having almost wiped them
jut , but they say
"WllITn MAN MUST OO , "
And indicate a determination to enforce their
Svishes. Hut as tlicro is a troop of cavalry
fat tlio Ponca agency no troublu Is appre
hended. An Indian uprising , however , would
pnly cause the government to summarily
toxpel tlio Bottlers from the Indian lands.

Lena , /-faro banks , stud poker , and
every other game known to the
'gambling fraternity are nourishing there

1 All trains north are loaded with pcoplo
leaving Oklahoma , unit oven the freights are
provided with coaches for carrying passen-
eeis. No regularity is practiced iu running
( trams , nnd the wonder is that there nro not
Jnoro accidents. At every station between
' Oklahoma City and Arkansas City four or
ivo freight trams uro met going south with
utpplfes for the settlers , and
is the Santa Fa road has not
'acllities for such a rush and
makes no efforts to got them , the people
luffor great inconveniences. It takes from
, cn to thirty hours to go from Oklahoma

The neonts do not know where the trains
arc , and such a thing ns system seems to
have been entirely abandoned.
i Cattle curs nro sldo-truckcd at several sta
tions with the rotting carcasses of cattle
( hat were trampled to death. The railroad
neu uro too busy to remove the dead animals
jind they nro left In the cars. Passenger
i trains are often compelled to stand on a track
ticxt to these cars , nnd the stench from the
load cattle Is another of thn trials that add
i io the disgust of the Oklahoma boomer.
; The only scavengers to remove thcso dead
tnitnulu ore the Ponca ludlans. Several
'squaws ' were out yesterday hurrying to a
cattle car that hud Just been sidetracked ,
/and soon they had out their knives and were

SAX Ainosio , May 2. A description of a
riot which occurred nt La Luz , near Guana
juato , Mcx. , a few days ago , over the incar
ceration of llvo Jesuit priests who ivcre
stirring up the Ignorant people against the
government , is given by n prominent citizen
of Guanajuato , who reached hero yesterday.
Soon after dark 12,000 men surrounded the
jnll where the priests have been locked up nnd
attacked its heavy doors with pick-axes ,
stones , crowbars and heavy beams of wood ,
and some of them In their wild fury

ngalnst the massive vails. Many of them
wore armed , and in a short tlmo n heavy flro
was pouring Into the windows. The mayor
of Guanajuato , who was Inside , wns ono of
the first to fall. Policemen who rushed up in
squads of two and three wcro remorselessly
butchered , and m n short tlmo moro than
twenty of thorn were lying dead on the pave
ment. The scattered ooldicra who were In
town were treated in a llko manner.
The mob , which by this tlmo wns utterly
unmanageable , cither by the government or
by the priests who had incited it , now

Just ns the inmates wcro about to surren

mob answered the order to disperse with a
yell nnd n discharge of firearms. Thq com
mand to lire was at once given , liullcts at
fearfully short range swept through the mass
of men , women and children like a scythe ,

Still they came on , nnd volley after volley
crashed into them , only to cause these be
hind to spurn the dead bodies with their
feet as they urosscd forward. The streets
were sticky with blood and the shallow gut
ters ran red.
In the meantime n number of insurgents
nrmcd with pistols and rifles had climbed
upon adjoining houses , and the soldiers be
gan to drop ono by ono. After n half hour's
continuous lighting , a charge with bayonets
was ordered. When the front rank ot the
, ho cntlro crowd broke nnd disappeared
.hrough alloys nnd byways. Altogether moro
.luui 250 persons have been slain , the greater
iart of whom wcro minors and Mexi
can laborers. The soldiers lost sixteen

ilnm was a lieutenant. Tlio Uro
n tlio jail was quenched nnd the llvo
badly frightened but determined nricsts wcro

It is thought that had the riot proven suc-
:03sful , nnd had the priests bctin icscucdaud

might luivo developed. As it Is , the Incipient

Scandalous nnd Riotous Scenes at
IMoutlay NIclH'.s Ball.
NEW YOIIK , May 2. [ Special Telegram to
Tnr. Ilr.n. ] The scenes In the supper room
nttho centennial ball Monday night cannot bo
described safely in newspapers. Never since
the palace of the Tullleries was invaded in
1779 by the sans culottesof the Seine depart
ment , have such startling contrasts been wit
nessed in similar circumstances. When it Is
said that the waiters , policemen and messen
ger boys drank most of the f rco champagne ,
the situation nt midnight may bo suggested.
Justices of the supreme court , governors ,
staff offlrors , club inon , lawyers ,
pools , millionaires , with beautiful and
refined women , crowded blankly
along the supper counter und
demanded in vain the attention they were
accustomed to receive. Waiters nnd other
functionaries jiround the place showed un
disguised contempt for the "freo lunch
ilonds. " Waiters who did not have to ac
count for unlimited wino took occasion to
neglect guests and treat themselves , The
excellent supper was largely wasted.
Drunken waiters invaded tlio ball room and
nourished bubbling bottles of champagne.
In tlio corridors free lights wcro of constant
occurrence. Gamblers , boodlcrs and women
dozed or inado merry on the staircases. Never
oneo did an accredited ofliccr interfere with
anybody's privilege. Policemen who
were sober were helpless. They couldn't
tell dress-coated waiters from guests. Uy 1
o'clock most of the respectable element
were making frantic and Hupperless efforts
to get away. Kvon this privilege was denied
them. A line extending from the coat rooms
for 500 yards , tnnda uo of some of the load
ing citizens of this town , surged for hours
against the fcoblo und inadequate partitions
of the coat room. Gentlemen grew angry
and desperate at the utter inadequacy of the
arrangements. With torn coats and
wrinkled shirt fronts men whoso names
uro known all over the union
fought their way towards their
coats , frequently under the clubs
of the police , the jeers of the mob outside
and the pernicious activity of pickpockets.
It was & o'clock In the morning buforo the
lost battered and ragged guest joined his
family nt the doors und reached his hack.
"In Its executive aspects the centennial ball
was tlio worst of its sort ever known in the
history of this citv. " said a well-known man
about town to-day. "Of the ladies I met ,
one's dress wo * ruined by n Plato of salad

which a stranger had broken upon

down n man who tried to kiss the daughter
ot n loading lawyer hero. The ticket takers
had no checks placed upon them. Tlicro is
no question thnt they made lots of money let
ting In people \vho never should huvo been
there. " Policemen lost tholr temper com
pletely and cleared people out at the end of
their clubs. Hundreds of bottles ofvino
wcro passed out of doors und sold by the
waiters and others. Ono man was drunk ,
fell down stairs und was so badly hurt ha
had to bo carried off in un ambulance. Many
Hags and potted plants were stolen nnd some
of the loios wore shockingly boiled after their
llrst occupants hud left. Tlio supper room
was cleared by clubs shortly after 1 o'clock.
The lights were ttirmtd out in the ballroom
long before the crowd bad left the building.

Affairs nt Grcston.
CHESTON , la. , May 2. [ Special to TUB
13in. : ] It has been learned from a very re
liable source thnt the Potter monument com
mission have finally decided that the mem
ory of the late Thomas J. Potter can best be
perpetuated by the erection of n mngnilicent
building , to bo known ns "Tho Potter Hos
pital. " The original plan for the erection of
a monster stntuo of bronze having been dis
approved by many prominent railroad offi
cials has been abandoned.
At n recent meeting of the commission
resolutions ns above written were unani
mously adopted. Some of Mr. Potter's most
intimate friends , as well as some of the
largest contributors to the fund , were in
favor of the step , and several have already
doubled the amount of their subscriptions.
Subscriptions amounting to almost $7,000 ,
nearly double the amount subscribed for the
monument , huvo been added within the past
few days. It is estimated that $25,000 can bo
easily secured. It will bo an institution
where sick and disabled railroad employes
can receive treatment free , which was the
"pet" idea of Mr. Potter. Among the most
anxious that a hospital Instead of a statue
bo erected is Mrs. T. J. Potter.whoso request
has been respected by the commissioners.
The county seat war is still being waged.

Dull , Maxwell and Higbcu have made reply
thereto and quote section 1 , chapter 69 , laws
of tno twenty-eighth general ossemuly.whlch
gives any city of the llrst or second class , or
ganized under the general laws of this stale ,
power to acquire real cstato or any interest
therein as a purchaser at an execution sale ,
and also to dispose of any real estate or In
terest therein on such terms as the city
council shall doom Just and proper. The at
torneys hold that the council have the power
and can alone determine the terms and con
ditions upon which the property may bo dis
posed of. In disposing of the hall to the
county the city reserves only so much of it
as is required for public needs. The petition
and remonstrance are still in circulation.

Wo nro opening new lots of Spring Sulta. Our trade has boon onorinoua , ami it Iwops
our buyer busy scouring the market. We have always taken the load in Men's and Young
Men's Suits , and have always put our main force in that part of our bualno33,4 wo oan
show the customer in a unit more than in any other article the great difference batw eon
our prices and those of other houses and convince him of the amount of money ho can save.
The Suits wo are getting in now are already from our second purchase , which ns a rule
are duplicated at from 15 to 20 per cent less than goods bought early in the season , and
adhering to our fixed rule to always lot our customers share in the benefits of llio bargains
wo are getting , we are now in a position to ofl'er many suits of rich and select pattorus , pro
ductious of the best manufacturers in the couutry-at prices which you would have to pay
elsewhere for ordinary and lower 'grade goods.
As mi extraordinary bargain we offer to-day
About 400 very fine Cheviot Suits---Sacks and Cutaway Frocks at $10.50. When you
see this suit yon will say that this is a ridiculously low price for such goods. The quaityl
is A 1. They are all in new designs and combinations of plaids , mostly light shades ; some
are faced with silk , and the general make-up of the e suits is like ( irst-ola33 custom work.
There are a few solid blue cheviots among thorn , wide wales and checks , which are now ao
popular. It is a pleasure for us to show and offer these suits in competition with suits for
which other houses ask $16.00 or $18.00.
Another special bargain we place on sale to-morrow is :
250 very good all-wool Cassimere Sack Suits at § 5.90. Wo have never sold a suit o
equal quality for less than $7.50 , and wo would consider this suit very cheap at that price-
There are two shades , a dark brown and a dark grey , both very neat. It will make a good
business suit , as it is of excellent quality , well made , looks as good and will give fully as
good satisfaction as any suit you pay § 10.00 for.
In connection with this suit sale wo will offer this week extraordinary inducements iu
Spring Overcoats , as we are desirous to close them all out before the season is over. Wo
have marked them down to figures which will induce you to buy one , even if you did not
