ate, it shows a state ot corruption in the
leaders of the Grover wing ot the De

to the matter were not obtained, and
Grover will Test under a cloud of suspi

If there is Vnjthiiig. in which Demo
crats (Grover Democrats, wo mean, and
there are 'tint lew ot thetn in, Linn

in "joking, especially about --election
times. "We find leading Democrats as
serting that money was used in electing

State Legislature, at that, going 60 far
as to declare they knew where they
could get money tor voting a certain
way, and they were pronounced fools by
their friends for hot taking it, now come
up before the investigating committee

joking, when they made these assertions,
although they continued to make them

Since the Russians crossed the Dan.

The latest from the Indian difficulty
is to the effect that on the 15th Joseph
sent , a scout named Kukulsuitlim. a
half-breed, to Gen. Howard, offering to
surrender himself and a portion of the
hostile band over which he has control.
Gen. Howard granted a cessation ot hos
tilities. While Joseph's messenger and
General Howard's were talking, Joseph
and his entire force moved away, and
is thought to be attempting to escape
over the Lolo trail. Joseph says he was
drawn into the fight by White Bird;

away but would come back and surren
