The Iloracbnck Wromlcrs Give Blood-
curdllnj ; lS.\liibltlon. i.
The horseback wrestling match between
Prof. Lloyd , of Buffalo , and Major Kaslin ,
of Kansas City , at the Coliseum last evening ,
was blood-curdling in its thrillingncss.
Promptly or 8:30 : two ilery , untamed steeds ,
fresh from the plow , were led into the arena ,
and the two gladiators throw themselves
astride. After circling nrouud each other
for fifteen minutes , Prof. Lloyd made a
snatch nt the major , and the major lost his
balance and fell slowly and gracefully off his
horse. First fall for the profes.
'Tho second bout was still moro exciting.
The major trotted up to the professor , und
before the latter could divine his ill-intent ,
ho leaped from his own weary Uoainnnto upon
tbo back of the professor's , and after tug
ging nwav nt the champion's ' neck a moment
or so , dumped him oft' in the sawdust. Second
end fall for the major.
The third bout was n regular air-tight ,
back-action , double-barreled cutuclnsm. The
two warriors ambled nbout each other for
nearly an hour , and all nt once , br twice ,
the major's bay Arabian lifted his oft hind
hoof to dislodge a lly thnt wns lunching off
his short ribs , nnd the major , losing his
equilibrium , foil headlong into the incar
nadined sawdust. Afi yet ho has not recov
ered his equilibrium. Third fall for the
professor. The allotted time for the fourth
fall was occupied by the vicious steeds' en
deavoring to keep as fur apart ns possible ,
nnd the two gladuuors agreed to settle the
light on the mattress , on foot , cutch-ns-
This part of the evening's entertainment
was not wholly without merit , and after u
long nnd severe struggle the major won two
falls , and Wns awarded the match.

MILKS CtTV , Mont. , July 10. [ Special
Correspondence of TUB Bcn.J There has
for n long time been a great deal of com
plaint made by the settlers on the Cheyenne
Indian reservation ly W l' ' the southeastern
part'of Custor county , against that region
being used by the Indians as n reservation.
A month ago n petition signed by nearly
every resident of the county was forwarded
to Washington , praying that the Indians bo
removed , as they nro a crcnt annoynnco and

Delegate Carter nrrlvcd in Miles City , on

Imvo the Indians removed.
The Che.ycinifts wcro put on the spot by
General Miles In 18S7 or thereabouts , and
nftor the settlers had taken up their lands.
They had coino from the Indian Territory ,
had fought in the war of TO and were taken
by General Miles , who put thorn there us
prisoners of war. The region wherein they
were placed wns afterwards declared a
reservation , regardless ot the rights
of a largo number of settlers who
Imd made land locations there. If the In
dians nro removed It is thought thnt they
will bo returned to the Indian territory.

"I consider the settlement of the dispute

The work is Indeed a most stupendous ono

TIIU THIini : AMKllICAS' EXPOSITION .
Tlio continued agitation of the subject of
holding the proposed three Americas' expo
sition in Now York , by the New York pa
pers , 1ms given the managers of the outer-
prise for Washington n great deal of uncnsl-
ucss. For two or three years they have
maintained headquarters here , and have
inuda Boveial attempts to secure congres
sional sanct'on for thu scheme , but up to the
present time it has been a paper enterprise
entirely. If the business iiUerests of Now
York really took hold of this tiling with the
idea of carrying it through , it is admitted that
Washington's chances would ho somewhat
slim. While Washington is tlio capital of
the greatest nation in the continent discov
ered by Columbus , and for that reason is the
best possibly place for holding tlio exposi
tion , it Is admitted thnt Now York has all
the advantages which comu from tlio vast
business interests centered thoro. Now
Yorlc City would probably bo boiiolltted to n
far greater extent by having the exposition
hold within her limits than uho would If It
was organised in Washington , and this will
probably induce tlio chambers of roinniorcu
boards of trade and other nsso
clntlons of business Interests to sub
scribe liberally towards the funds
for the establishment of the show.
Just now the nbtieiico from the metropolis
of so many'of her leading bUHlness citizens
nt summer reports , serves to keep buck the
preliminary steps , but it is quite probabio
that as KOOII as tlio summer vacations are
over Now York will begin in earnest
to prepare the way towards suouVlng the
exposition , nnd tlio manager's of the Wash
ington scheme will have to get up and dunt
if they succeed in inducing congress to ignore -
nero tlio claims of Now Yorlc and appro
priate thu necessary funds to Insure tlio In

Tno complaints of Ghooly Khan , minister
from Persia to this country , of the want of
respect with which ho has been treated
during his stay ut the capital of the United
Btstfife. nro not surprising to UIOHO who
know Iho character of tlio Ainorlcun public.
Ghooly Khun is not the only orlontal who
has boon the subject of the unpleasant star
ing and sneering of the people of Washing
ton. The Turkish minister seldom walks
the streets without attracting unpleasant
slda remarks from the pcoplo whom
ho meets , and members of the
Chinese legation are constantly jibed
not only by the hoodlums but
by people who claim a degree of respectabil
ity for themselves. Kvcm members of Kuro-
poan legations are not exempt from.the ridi
cule of the Inhabitants of Washington , nnd
it Is no uncommon thing to heat- alleged
witticisms thrown out at the representatives
of Franco , Germany or Husxla. In fact on
ono occasion n United States senator nt a
reception of the president expressed the
opinion In very loud tones , mid while stand
