Mlllo Lacs had begun a massacre of the
Ho Bald a band of fifty Indians had do-
Bccndcd upon the houses of the settlers at
midnight , and with a whoop had set 11 ro to
houses and fired upon the fleeing residents.
Jens Magunscn , Huns Jorgor , Peter Swon-
uon and four others were shot dead as they
ran ; n dozen were wounded and It Is believed
others were killed.
Mlcholson loft the place before getting
much Information , in _ order to glvo
the alarm. From Mora ho telegraphed
Governor Morrlam , but the latter
was at Wltulom , attending a mooting of the
G. A. II. Private Secretary Elliott opened
the dispatch and forwarded It to the gover
nor. The latter wired Colonel Bond , of the
First regiment , to place companies C and G
under arms , in readiness to move.
If Indians nro on the reservation , they nro
under the Jurisdiction of the United States ,
and the regulars will have to attend to them.
At 8 p. m. General Rugor issued orders to
the officers at Fort Knelling to send thrco
companies. Ihcy leave St. Paul at 1 o'clock
„ to-night.
The Chlppowa Indians number 2,300 and
nro located aroutid the shores of Mlllo Lacs ,
la Mlllo Lacs county. They have taken part
in many uprisings against the whites and
constantly manifest a hostile attitude , and
their action now causes no surprise. It they
nro not checked at once It is certain many
Ives will bo lost. The regulars will reach
the sccno of the massncro at
noon to-morrow. The reds have been gath
ering at Lonamio for ten days , and held the
annual war dance Tuesday evening. They
bad secured a largo quantity of liquor some
where , and were ugly and threatened to got
even with the whites for fancied injuries.
The settlers arc constantly encroaching
upon tbolr domain , so they claim , occupying
some of their best land , picking their berries ,
and encumbering them by the building of
fences and dams. Reports from Milaca
Junction and Atkin , say tno settlers have
Iqft tbolr homes on musso and are fleeing1
southward. A company of homo rnngors
was organized at Mora during the afternoon ,
and they will leave for Mlllo Lacs on horse
back at daybreak , armed with rifles and shot
Negotiations Between Land and Lake
Routes Fall Flat.
CHICAGO , Juno 13. [ Special Telegram to
THE BEE ] Negotiations between Chairman -
man Falthorn and the Lake Superior lines ,
looking to a settlement of the Northwestern
rate problem have ended in a flat failure.
The Lake lines argued tljat they J hold the
bey to tbo situation , and would bo foolish to
'givo up their advantage. The proposition
of the Western Freight association was that
tbo rates should bo advanced to the former
standard , the lake lines to take sixty per
cent and the rail lines forty of the business.
As was foreseen tbo proposition was refused ,
there being no possible way to thus divide
, the traflic. The hope of some settlement was
not given up until late this afternoon. Time
was asked to allow the Freight association
to consider local rates to St. Paul based on
the 23-ccnt through rate. This matter was
made a special order for to-morrow morning ,
when the proposed reduction of the Burling
ton & Northern to a 45-cent basis will bo con-
'siderod. The Chicago Freight bureau will de
mand a reduction to at least OS-cents.

At flvo minutes before fi o'clock this ovon-
ng Secretary Windotnvdeclded to adopt the
oport of Special Agent Llnton on the now
ocatlon of tlio Omaha postofllco. The de
cision is In favor of block 80 , known as the
. 'lantcrs1 house block , and Is bounded on the
cast by Sixteenth street , on the west by Sev
enteenth street , on the north by Capital
nvcnue , and on the south by Dodge street.
At 4:30 o'clock Secretary WIndom and
Supervising Architect Wludritn had a final
consultation on the Omaha building site.
Assistant Secretaries Tlchonor and Bach-
ollor were present. Tlio supervising nrchl-
cnt had all the papers In the Omaha ease
vlth him , but the report was ready and It
favored the selection of block No. 80. The
secretary chatted with his assistants for
hrco or four minutes and then came out and
announced to Tun Bui : correspondent that
ho Omaha question was settled and that
> Iock.SO was the slto decided upon. I naked
f ho had anything moro to say upon the sub-
cot , but the secretary simply said , "No ; wo
lave only adopted the report of Mr. Llnton. "
Now that the slto has been selected the
next stop will bo to secure to the ? overnmont
a title to the lots , and to hare all conveyances
properly made. After this Is done Supervising -
ing Architect Windrlm will complete his
plans and specifications and then the treas
urer will advertise for bids. After that
ground will bo broken and the work of con
struction commenced. It i ? by no moans
certain how soon Mr. Wlndrlm will bo able
, o complete the plans and specifications of
: ho building. Ho has yet to reorganize and
get his force In working order , and It will
certainly bo weeks , and perhaps months , before
fore work on the Omaha postofllco will bo
commenced. Mr. Windrim may visit Omaha
before doing the final work upon the plans ;
at least ho was urged to ao DO by Mr , Council ,
when ho was hero lust month.
The members of the civil service commis
sion will start west on Monday , with the
present Intention of visiting Indianapolis ,
Chicago and Milwaukee , and with the pur
pose of extending their trip to all thn largo
cities of the west if they can see their way
clear to do so. The members of the commis
sion say that no particular charges have
been Hied against the postmasters of cither
of the throe cities which they have on their
slate , and that they dcslro to examine into
the methods of conducting business in each
of the ofllces , with n view to the enforce
ment of the strict observance of the civil ser
vice law. . It is moro than surmised by the
members of the commission , that officials
uudor the last administration were per
mitted to raise barriers against the admis
sion into the civil service , of young men
whoso politics were not of the right tint , and
it is the liriu purpose of Messrs. Lyman ,
Roosevelt and Thompson , to see to it that
every olllco is conducted with the closest
reference to the spirit as will as the letter
of the civil hervico law , so far as appoint
ments and promotions tire concerned. It is
likely that after the visit to Milwaukee , the
commission will swing around to St. Paul
and Minneapolis , and then down to Omaha ,
and then around by way of St. Louis back to
Washington , but this latter programme has
not been doflnitolj determined upon.

The Grnnil Jury's Worlc.
CHICAGO , Juno 13. A morning paper says
bat ono of the most Important statements In
connection with the Cronln murder was
made yesterday by Jack Stanloynn cmployo
of the city sewerage department , to a couple
of friends. The statement In brief was that
Woodruff , the man supposed to have driven
, ho wagon in which the trunk containing
> ocln'8 body was hauled away from the
Carlson cottage , had frequently been seen by
Stanley in conversation with Detective
Coughlln , several weeks previous to the
murder. Stanley , when soon to-day , denied
Having seen Woodruff in conversation with
Coughlln or that ho had made any statement
; o that effect.
The principal interest in the Cronln case
was centered in the grand jury that mot this
forenoon. The strict orders of secrecy in
stituted yesterday were In no wise departed
from. Mrs. Conklln was the first witness
who testified. Her testimony was a ropotl-
tion of that which has boon many times
published except that she attempted a
mlnuto description of the man who decoyed
Cronin to his death , nnd which , so far as
Mrs. CoiiKlln's memory extends , tallied per
fectly with the published description of Mc
Donald , now under arrest in Now York. The
remainder of the jury's investigations dur
ing the forenoon were devoid of interest.
The younger Carlson's description , of Wil
liams , one of the men who rented the cot-
Lago , tallied in many respects with that of
John J. Maronoy , the Irishman whom the
Now York pollco have in custody.
Chief of Police Hubbard says that Thomas'
Desmond , an Irish nationalist , of San Fran
cisco , who is suspected of complicity in the
Cronin murder , nnd who is said to have given
the Now York detectives the slip a few days
ago , has been located in San Francisco und
that ho can bo had whenever wanted. It is
alleged that Desmond registered at McCoy's
hotel April 10 , nnd that between that dnto
and April 31 , when ho loft the hotel , ho hold
numerous conferences with the man who reg
istered as "Melville , " but who is believed to
bo Maronoy , now under arrest in Now York.
Hubbard received a dispatch this afternoon
announcing the arrest of the mysterious in
dividual who is bcliovod to bo badly wanted
in connection with the Cronln case. The
police would say nothing about the captuio
Qxcopt that the follow resembled Frank
Williams , ono of the men who rented tno
Carlson cottairo.
All the witnesses examined during the
afternoon had previously testified at the
coroner's ' Inquest. They were Detective
Palmer , Dinans , hostler ; Morcland , M. E.
McHale , Revolls. carpet layer ; Henry
Rouscb , who found the body , and OHloer
Larch , who found the trunk kept in the
cottage. It was understood they simply ro-
pcatcd the statements they made at the
inquest. The jury adjourned at 4 p. m. until
"What do I think of the present status of
the case against Alexander Sullivan ? " said
Rev. Father Dornoy to-day. "J. don't see
that there hat been any case made out
against Alexander bullivan. I have been
for years a warm friend of Sullivan. I am
his friend to day. I have implicit faith in his
crime. I don't ' und can't bollevo such a thing
possible , of that man. I have known him
closely and under various and trying circum
stances. All along the course of the coro-
nors's Investigation prejudice has been aimed
at Sullivan. Every witness was put on the
rack to ascertain if ho could not possibly say
or bo made to say something that would incriminate -
criminate Sullivan. It seems to mo in its
earliest stugo the investigation ceased to
bo an inquiry into the murder of Dr. Cronin ,
nnd became an inquiry as to whether the
foul deed could not bo fastened upon Alex
ander Sullivan. It was not , 'Who are the
murders of Dr. Cronin'so ) muoh as , 'Can '
this charge bo laid at the door of Alexander
SuUivonl1- "
Father Dornoy denounced the murder at
longtn. Ho believed there would soon bo re
action in the public mind as to Sullivan. Re
garding the Irish society divisions and quar
rels Father Dornoy said : "From
what I have seen of the testimony
alleged to have beau glvon nt the inquest
there has been us much mallcnlty shown
against .Alexander Sullivan as could possibly
bo found towards the opposing factions
among his friends. I also feel certain.much
of the newepapor case against him , created
and published i.n some of the papers , was
originated and kept up by prrsonul enmity.
Before Sullivan's ' arrest a number of friends
did not care to express any opinion in his
favor for fear of their utterances being mis
construed as an attempt to divert the course
of public justice , yet no sooner was the ar
rest made than his friends felt free to glvo
utterance to their sentiments , and now you
will Ibid there uro hundreds of the friends
of Alexander Sullivan who have the same
faith and confidence- his inuocenco as I
have myself. "

sented to Governor Hill to-day from Gov
ernor Fifer , of Illinois , for the surrender of
Maronoy and McDonald , charged with the

After the usua.1 loyal toasts , the chairman ;
In a neat and oulogistlo speech , proposed thai'
"United States of America , " coupling the
name of Mr. Lincoln. As the latter rose to
respond , n tremendous salvo of cheers
greeted him. It is his first appearance la
public , slnco his arrival in England , and ho
adverted to the fact in his frank , boyish
voice , when tno enthusiasm of his hearers
had in a measure subsided. Ho had not
realized before that such a welcome could bo
accorded to an American , minister In Eng
land , or clsowhoro , and ho was at a loss to
know how to respond. Ho had
been warned to leave engineering alone , be
cause there were present so many exports ,
so ho did not feel at liberty to refer to his
own experience us an onginocr when ho had
charge of tin army and navy engineering'
corps. In that period of his experience ho
had seen some of the greatest engineering
feats of the tune , namely , not only the im
provement but tlio creation of rivers and
harbors on the American const. Ho wtvs
also debarred from speaking too much of the
United States , because there were so many
Americans present that ho dared not speak
anything but the truth ; whereas , his
first impulse was to yield to
the feelings which ho had brought
away from the Washington centenary
and paint his native country In such glowing
colors as would occasion an exodus of all the
British engineers to America. What Mr.
Lincoln did say however was in effect that
the present occasion was ono of many which
had come under his notice showing the per
fect good feeling thai bound America and
England together ; that much of this Interna
tional amity was duo to the work of the en
gineers , who were rapidly destroying tlma
and space , and that ho hoped that this Rood
fooling would continue forever.
