A big cave-In occurred yesterday afternoon
nt 2 o'clock at the Evans laundry , corner
of Main street and Sixth avenue , and J. A.
Keller , the engineer , came within an ace of
losing his life. The engine room Is located
at the rear end of the building on the north
side. From the main wall to a twelve-Inch
wall some twenty feet away were run
heavy timbers , which supported a water
tank twelve feat high , containing 300 barrels.
This tank was kept full constantly. The
theory advanced by some of the members of
the fire department Is that the constant Jar
ring of the engine , and perhaps the move
ment of the water , gradually weakened the
walls of the building.
Yesterday the neighbors for a block around
, cre startled at a crash , and on
olng to see what was the matter
ound that the walls of the engine room , for
distance of perhaps twenty feet , lay with
ardly ono brick on top of another. The roof
ad caved In and the water tank was potir-

lid the crash come that Engineer Keller

The resurrection of George Feurhauken's
case Is about to take place. Feurhauken has
a large second hand establishment on North
Eighth street , near the Northwestern round
house , at which any old thing may be bought
and sold. Feurhauken got hold of some
stolen property something less than ten years
ago , and after the case had been tried In the
district court In the spring of 1SS9 , he turned
out to be unable to prove that he did so Inno
cently. He was sentenced to a three-years'
term In the state penitentiary. Ills attorney
was A. C. McGulgan , whose queer style of
legal practice Interested the public for a
couple of years about that time. McGulgan
served notice of appeal to the supreme court ,
and at odd times people have wondered why
Feurhauken never went to the penitentiary.
It now turns out that McGulgan never did
anything but serve a notice of appeal. Fllck-
Inger Bros , filed a petition In the district
court yesterday In the name of the state of
Ion a , alleging that the Indictment , trans
cript of evidence , bill of exceptions , motion
for a new trial , and all the other papers In
the case , which should have been sent up to
the supreme court , are still In the hands of
McGulgan at Creston , where he now lives.
The petition asked that an order of court be
made upon McGtilgan requiring him to give
up the papers or else show cause why he
should not be punished for contempt of court.
The petition was granted by Judge Smith ,
and Mr. McGulgan will now haveto fish or
The case came up at the last term of su
preme court and the decision of the lower
court , It Is said , came very near being af
firmed on account of McGulgan's failure to
have anything on record. But he secured a
continuance until the September term , and
has been just as backward as before about
placing the papers where they ought to be.

Council Bluffs has been making a great
reputation for Itself during tlu past few
weeks as a summer resort for tramps. In
the month of June seventy-one were regis
tered at the marshal's office , while during
the first twelve days of July there were
twenty-five. For about a month the chain
gang has been a thing of the past. A whole
car load of tramps would ba brought In , sev
eral of them singled out by the police and
given a ride up town in the patrol wagon.
The rest would be left to prey upon the people
ple of the city , principally because there
was not room for them all In the jail. The
next morning , after having a night's lodging
and two or three meals at the expense ot
the city , they would be sjntenced to five
or ten days In the city Jail , and ghen the
option of taking the first train out of the
city. Some of them liked It so well that
they decided to try It over again , but most
of them wsre contented with a good thing
without trying to get the earth , and left the
city , showering benedictions on the kind
hearted police authorities.
Marshal Canning has at last come to the
conclusion that he will do what he can to
prevent things from going on In the future
as they have In the past. He consulted
yesterday with the justices ot the peace
with a view to having a bread and water
diet given all tramps who turn up at the
city jail. Just what will bs done has not
yet been decided. A bill ot fare of this
simple sort will undoubtedly be provided ,
however , or else Mayor Cleaver will be In
duced to appoint a pollc'man to take charge
of the chain gang. In one or the other or
both of these ways the. tramps' minds will
be Impressed with the fact that they are not
wanted here , and It will take no longer for
this Impression to get abroad than It did the
Impression that Council Bluffs was "dead

Thursday afternoon took a lot of Jewelry ,
a watch , revolver and some clothing. Just
how much of the latter he cannot tell , how

A large bundle ot clothing was found In the

had evidently left it , being frightened away
before they had completed their job.

NEW YORK , July 12. Ex-Senator M. F.

"The free silver talk by newspapers and
demagogues Is something wearying. There
Is not a newspapsr between Minneapolis and

the poor , ' 'International agreement , ' 'John
Sherman , ' and they are full of all the rest
of the rot. Religious papers are also devot
ing space to the discussion.
"There Is an attempt by some free coinage
men to boom Don Cameron , but It Is un
successful. I should say the sentiment was
divided between McKlnley and Reed , with
McKlnley a trifle the stronger. There Is
some talk about Morton , and some ot Alli

CHAMDEllLAIN , S. D. , July 12. ( Special. )
Serious difficulty , If not bloodshed , Is Immi
nent between the settlers and stockmen re
siding on Medicine creek , northwest of here ,
In the ceded Sioux lands. In the ravines and
valleys along Medicine creek and Its tribu
taries the hay crop Is unusually abundant ,
nnj It Is the possession of this hay that has
caused the bitter feeling existing between the
stockmen and settlers. A few days ORO
Ighty head of cattle belonging to one of the
tockmen were driven from the hay land , and
\ so badly scattered that It took the cow-
oys some time to again gather them to-
, ethcr. This enraged the stockmen , and
hrcats of a violent nature were exchanged
> y the opposing parties. As the coveted hay
B located on vacant government lnn.1 , both
ho stockmen and settlers naturally claim
iqual rights to Its possession. Some of the
: attlemen claim that the hot-headed spirits
monc ; the settlers have threatened to raid
, he cowboy camps and lynch the cow punchers ,
ind to guard against a move of this character
he cattlemen and their employes have armel
hcmselves.Reliable and conservative par
ies who are familiar with the feeling on
both sides declare that the matter has really
.eaclie.1 a serious point , and that a bloJdy
clash between the stockmen and settlers Is
lablo to occur at any moment.

CHEYENNE , July 12. ( Special Telegram. )
A report was recel\ed here today from
W. L. Simpson , county attorney of Fremont
county , giving details of a fight between tlio
settlers of the Jackson Hole region and a
uniting party of Bannock Indians from the
Lemht agency , Idaho. The report was
jrouglit to Fort Washaklo by a Bannock
Indian sent In as a courier ,
The fight arose over the attempt on June
29 to arrest seven Bannocks for the unlawful
tilling of game. The arrest was attempted
jy a constable from Maryvale , aided by
three men. The Indians stood the party
off with their guns , and the officers sent
one of their men back for reinforcements.
A. large number of the Jackson Hole settlers
volunteered to go to hla aid , and on July
3 the Indians , who kept on the move , and
who had been Joined by a second hunting
party , were overtaken In the Fall River
basin , near the Ulnta count > line.
The Indians were surrounded , and when
ordered to surrender showed flyht , and at
tempted to ebcape. They were headed off
and when one of their men was shot , Im
mediately made signs that they were willing
to surrender. Fifteen of them , the entire
party , were captured. Simpson left for
Jackson Hole yesterday , and will take charge
of the case against the Indians If Us finds
they have \iolated the law.
The Jackson Hole country lies Immediately
south of the Yellowstone National park , and
Is one of the fin st hunting grounds ot the
west. Deer , elk , bear , and , In some seasons ,
buffalo are found In abundance. It Is a
fa\orlte place for hunting parties of Indians ,
whose inethodH are a constant source of Ir
ritation to the settlcis , who depend for their
fresh meat upon the game , and who are
desirous of preserving It ,
CONSTANT SOURCE OF TROUBLE.
The present trouble Is the outcome of the
continuous violation of the game laws by In
dians from the reservations outsldo ofVjo -
mlng. The Shoshones and Arapahoes , the
only Indians of Wyoming , are kept on their
reservation by their agent , and there has
been no trouble with them. The Crows from
Montana and the Bannocks from Idaho , how
ever , come through the country and slaugh
ter game wantonly. They have a depraved
taste for feeding on the unborn young of elk ,
and slaughter the mother , leaving the body to
rot on the plains. Numerous complaints ha\e
been made to the Interior department by
Wyoming representatives In congress , and by
the various governors of the state during the
past four years.
Requests have been made that the Indians
bo kept on their reservations and refused
passes to travel through Wyoming. The In
dians take advantage of passes given them to
visit other reservations than their own to
get Into the Jackson Hole region on hunting
trips. They have on Idea that they are nol
amenable to state laws , being national wards ,
and have disregarded the threats of arrest
made by local officers and settlers. During
the past month tno matter was reviewed by
Governor Richards In a letter to Secretary
Smith of the Interior department , and It was
then predicted that unless the evil was reme
died a conflict between the Indians and sel
lers was Inevitable ,
It Is believed the recent fight will end the
trouble for the time being , as the settlers art
fully able to arrest any hunting party of In
( Jlans which may be found breaking the law
