to leave hero for the lower Brulo agency n
soon ns tholr special car Is returned from
Mobrnra , whcro It went to take Governor
Foster to the Santco agency. This wilt bo
to-morrow , or certainly Friday. The com
mission feels Hint it has dom all in Its power

talnod docs not justify thcmo remain longer.
It hud boon hoped to break the strong
combination of Indians against the bill ,
bnt this now scorns Impossible. As stated
In those dispatches , It Is well kuown th.vt a
secret nnd powerful influonuo hat been ox-
orciacd upon these Indians , nnd while sur
mises can bo glvtin , it is Impossible to got at
the facts , although much patience and
diplomacy ha * been used. General Crook

remaining $14,000 ho wished to pay to W. J.
Pollock to become attorney for all the Sioux ,
and wanted two couriers , with petitions , to
bo sent at once to the different agencies to
obtain the signatures of the head men to this
effect. Hut his band objected to this on the
ground that the other Indians had not lost
their ponies and tlio money was theirs and
it had nothlnc to dp with the land.
Pollock , in accordance with his letter to
Ilcd Cloud , was to hove been hero yesterday.
lie has stated , as their attorney , that ho
could keep their reservation intact , but

Up to the present time CUD have signed ,

indefinite answers to anything concerning
To-day was to hnvo been n big issue day ,
but tlio issue failed to take pUce owing to
the nbsoncii of cattle. This being the last is-
BUO In the present fiscal year and many cattle -
tlo being lost last winter , it necessarily pro
duces u shortage. The new contractors have
not yet begun to nut in the now supply. It
was a great dlsaupointmcnt to u very largo
number of people from northern Nebraska ,
who had come out to see the issuo. Amer
ican Horse bitterly -scored the beef con
tractors in his spccolt Monday , and ho cer
tainly seems justified in the instance of
Roncho , of Minnesota , who tins the contract
of furnishing the cows and hulls hero.
Of the 240 cows delivered hero only
live were accepted , and of tie ! twimty-flvo
bulls not one was received , many of them
being less than yearlings. A great source of
complaint hero by the Indians is tho' deliv
ery of their rations and annuities. The con
tracts iiro lot in the surimr and accented In
May , yet they aronever delivered until late
in the fail and often in the middle of the
winter. It is thought that the commissary
should have n complete clearing up nnd
everything issued by the end of the ilscul
year. If this w.is done and the Indians hud
to wait on the action of the con
tractors for their rations there would
bo suffering and even starvation. As it Is ,
by the ncont reserving n. portion of the ra
tions back to bide theni'over until the annual
rations are received , much suffering is en
dured. To remedy this the government
should BCO that the contractors 1111 their con
tracts promptly in accordance with ttio law.

WASHINGTON. I ) . C' . . Juno 20. I
The old aristocracy of Washington are con
siderably exercised over the conduct of the
heirs and trustees of the Corcoran estate In
cutting up Into building lots and advertising
for sale the beautiful grounds that surround
the mansion of the late philanthropist. Mr.
Corcoran owned the finest house In Wash
ington. It stands opposite the white house
across Lafayette square , and Is inclosed
within n high brick wall. Ho had a park
that covered nearly an cntlro block ono of
the largest blocks In the city. This ground
was precious to him , and ho greatly enjoyed
It. The flowers and trees were his especial
delight , and most of his mornings during
mild weather were spent wandering
about his grounds and sitting upon
Ills lawn. The property is Inherited
by his two ttrandchlldron , Mr. William
C. and Miss Lulio Eustls , aged somewhere
from twenty to twonty-llvo years. They do
not appear to reverence the old mansion , as
many of Mr. Corcorun's old friends and
neighbors do , nnd within a few months after
his death shocked their circle of intlmato ac
quaintances by advertising it for rent , but It
Is not u house easily rented. The rooms uro
few In number , but very largo , and were ar
ranged for the use of the ch'ildless old widower
ewer , who needed only rooms enough for
himself and 1ns attendants. Now the heirs
have decided to cut up the grounds into
small lots and sell them on iho market.
Uelug situated In the most desirable portion
of the city they will probably bring the high
est prices of any rcsldcnco property over

Triple Collision of Freight Trains on
the Pennsylvania Itottd.
PiTTsntmo , Juno 20. * A triple collision of
freight trains occurred near Litrobo , Pa. ,
forty mites cast of this city , on the Pennsyl
vania road , about 3:30 : this morning. Thirty
cars were wrecked and seven persons killed ,
four of them unknown tramps. Engineer
Caldwell and his firemen nro supposed to
have been killed Instantly. . Their bodies
nro still In the crook whcro the locomotive
fell. Brakeman Miller was fatally crushed ,
The cause of the accident IM not known. The
loss to the railroad company will bo heavy.
A dispatch just received from Grecnsburg ,
ton miles from Ltitrobo , states that n party
of about thirty-live workmen from Johns
town worn Htcallng n rldo on a freight train
when tlio accident occurred. The wreck
caught lire from a lltno bed and the men were
cremated. The story is not credited hero
and the Pennsylvania railroad officials know
nothing of it. James Flannagan nnd a com
panion , who was fatally injured , were
brought from the wreck lo this cttv this after
noon. Flannagun , who Is a returning Johns
town laborer , says twelve persons were on
the car with him at the ; \\iao \ of the collision ,
but ho could say nothing whatever as to
GncENsnuiio , Pa. , Juno 20. It Is probable
that thirty-live or forty lives were lost in the
railroad wreck at Latrobe this morning.
Only four or llvo bodies huvo been taken
from the pile of cars yet. Thirty-one cars
went over the bridge and are piled ono upon
another in the water. The conductor of the
freight states that in nil probability thirty or
forty men nro still under the wrecic. Ho put
off ut Derr.v station about forty-llvo men
who were coming from Johnstown. Ho
states that when ho moved out a great many
of them got on again , and it Is moro than
likely the killed \vill reach the number
stated. A car load of lime in the center of
the train was the last to go down and it was
scattered over the pile 'of shattered cars.
Then the debris took fire , and notwithstand
ing the efforts of the people.to put out the
flames , it is still burning. Arms and legs of
victims can bo scon protruding from th o
LATitonE , June 20. The debris of the
wreck which occurrid on the Pennsylvania
railroad hero this morning is bcinc rapidly
cleared uwuv. At 8 o'chokto-night ten dead
bodies had boon rocovprpd. Those of Engi
neer Caldwcll ana Gcorpo rolich , fireman ,
have not yet been founu' but it is expected
they will bo reached bcforo lo'ng. About a
dozen men were moro or less injured , several
of whcm , it is expected , will not recover. It
is almost certain that , from twenty-five to
thirty people were killed in tlio wreck. The
water in the creek at ttiop.ont , ! whore the ac
cident occurred is twejve foot deep and it
is expected that ten , or twelve bodies
are in the bott/jh of tlio crook ,
hold there by the wreckage. John
II. Miller , flagman on the freight , states that
the proper signals wcrq given when the posi
tion of the shifter was. discovered , and En
gineer Caldwell answered , but the speed
was too high. When thoill-fated train loft
Hoitvor about forty workmen boarded her ,
but the conductor put , Uicm off at Dorry.
Four injured men Ukca t-om ono car stated
that eleven others were fyi another box car.
It is stated by ono of the ) rescued that there
were fifteen or twenty jnon. Ono or two of
the bodies taken frotn the wreck were horribly
ribly burned by the lime which covered the
wreck. At 9 o'clock to-night the work of
