THE ORDER AGAINST CATTLEMEN.
Washington, Aug. 28. Only four days
remain of the forty allowed by the presi
dent's proclamation for the removal of cat
tlj and cattlemau from Indian territory.
T:ie war department was informed to-day
tli it no preparttions have been made for ex
neditintr the ileDarture of cattlemen, as all
coucemed are fully convinced that the cat
tleman will move out of the territory iu
good faith and with .ill the expedition pos
sible. Imports have been received at army
headquarters that one of the principal les
sees has already removed his entire herd be
yond the boundaries of Indian teiritory,
and that all the others appear to be moving
as rapidly as possible.
Washington, Aug. 30. It the expression
one hears from congressman now in Wash
ington are in any decree those of the major
ity of the lower house of congress --and that
is fair to presume the labor unions of the
country are injuring very seriously their in
fluence with congress by continuous agita
tion, strikes, threatened strikes, boycotting,
etc. Nearly every member of congress is ot
the opinion that the labor unions are doing
more now than anything else to increase the
distrust and injure the condition of finance.
It is suggested by the statesmen that labor
would be strengthened before congress -that
is, thj demand of workiugineu would I.e.
more favorably considered if '.he represent
ative orders would lay their wants before
their representatives iu Congress, unaccom
panied by confidence destroying acts and
proclamations. What Congressmen are
clamoring for is what the country wants -restoration
of business confidence.
THE ORDER TO BE OBEYED.
Washington, Aug 31. The period of 40
week everything was favorable to a large
yield, but picking had scarcely begun when
the rainy period set iu. Examination of the
flower iu the past two days shows in a large
number of yards that rust has injured it.
The market has been flat for several weeks,
with prices below the cost of production.
Under these circumstances destrnction of a
part of the crop would be a benefit rather
than a calamity. Around Cherry valley it
is reported that 100,000 pounds has been
made at eight and a half Cents. The Schoh
arie acerage has increased 10 per' cent.
Many growing crops in this region have
been contracted for at ten cents, and no
d .ubt many thousand bales have been sold
iu this state within the last few weeks at
OUR BIG WOOL SHIPMENNT.
Philadelphia, Aug 28 The Times
learns that half a million pound of wool

ever made from tiie coast. A representative
of a large wool house said, "Everybody

Galveston, Aug. 30. A special to the
News from Cuero, this state, says: The
Southern Pr.citic railway company have ob
tained control of the New York, Texas &
Mexican railway, which runs from Ri-sc-n
burg Junction to Victoria, a distance of
ninety-two miles. The road will be operat
ed in conjunction with the Gulf, Western
line from New Urleaus to Victoria. C.ieno

days Axed by the president iu his proclaina- Xexas 4; i'acilic railway, forming a through

the Jheyenne and Arauaho agency in the
Indian territory expires to mm row. The
Secretary of the interior has received advices
from the territory indicating the purpose ol
ranchers to comply with the terms ft the
proclamation to tiie best of their ability, and
thousands of head of cattle are now on foot
en route to other states and territories. It
is not believed that the services of military
forces will be required to complete evacua
tion of the territory. The impression l
said to prevail among the cattlemen that the
order of the president culling for the removal
of all fences on public lauds will not be
forced. It is stated at the deptrtment. lu.w
evei , that this order will be enforced to the
letter and with a full force of military it
fences on public lands.
Washington. Aug. 31.-tlt is the inten
tion of the secretary of the iuterior to issue
any general order in regard to removal of
the fences from the public lands, but it has
been determined to deal with all cases of vi
olation of the law specially. It is believed
better results will be thus obtained than for
a general order, which would be looked upon
as a proclamation binding upon no one in
particular. Special agents of the land office
are under instructions to report to the de
pertment all cases of illegal fencing and in
structions looking to the removal of fences
are promptly furnished ftr his guidance. In
each case where the agent is able to effect a
removal be is directed to do so, and when
necessary U. S. Marshals will be called up
on through -the attorney -general. This
action was taken to-day upon the report of
an agent showing a large tract of public laud
had been illegally fenced in southern Colo
rado adjoining the Kansas line. A letter
was sent to the attorney-general requesting
him to cause the United Siates marshal to
mystery. The r?al cause of the visit was
the order of President Cleveland directing
owners of cattlt ou Indian lands in the west
to vacate their grazing grounds. Gen. But
ler is himself one of the proprietors of a large
ranch, and his clients, and personal friends
represent many million dollars of capital
thus invested. The order !3 therefore of
very great consequence and importance to
He was preparing to see the president, and
the object of his visit was to ask a prelimi
nary order restraining execution of the proc
lamation of the president until the question
conld be determined by the court. Gen.
Butler's object was to present the matter to
Judge Miller, Judge Blatchford being absent
from his circuit, and not easy of access.
Butler presented very cogent reasons for
some order that would protect them. The
desin d order was not issued.
Now the order of Cleveland prempto-
ry, summary and dictatorial, says they must

will surely lie a fight. The cattle will not
be moved. You could not move a colored
picnic, let alone 5,000.000 head of cattle, by
any proclamation, let it issue trom the presi
dent or any one else. Yes, a fight will be
made. It involves important questions;
the right of property, power of Indians to
make contracts, and p .wer and authority of
the government to interfere. Of one thing
rest assured; the cattle will stay and the
right will go on. We have no autocrat iu
this country. If a landlord wants to put
you out of a house he goes to the courts, not
to the president. If a contract has been vio
lated we go to the courts, not to the execu
tive. As to what Justice Miller decide I I
do not know: He did not grant the injunct
ion. No overt act has been committed.
The president had simply issued orders. If
nobody obeyed that was the end of it, unless
he attempted to eaiforce it, and then another
juestiou would arise.

OUR WHEAT SURPLUS.
New York, Aug. 30. The Financi
Chronicle savs: "The decline ill wheat has
certainly strained speculators who have been
trying to carry our large su plus at prices
that Europe was not willing to pay. This is
the third occasion within four years that we
have kept our crop, when we might have re
alized a good price for it, only to sell it at a
less figure later on. The decline appears to
have had no effect on business at western
trade centers. One reason is, perhaps, that
most of the old surplus is iu the ban Is of
speculators, the farmers having got rid of it
at a fair price. Still there is a large crop of
spring wheat to come forward."
IN THE INTERESTS OF REIL.
Rochester, Aug. 30. A largely attended
and enthusiastic meeting of French-Canadians
of this city was held this afternoon, iu
behalf of Reil, the condemned Canadian reb
el. Addresses were made by prominent
Frenchmen of this city, and a petition ad
dressed to Secretary Biyard, asking for the
interposition of the United States govern
ment, was unanimously adopted. The pe
tition, which is signed by all the Frend
residents, states that Reil is a citizen of the
United States, and that his trial was not a
Indianapolis, Aug. 28 The revival ii
business here is by no means confined t
manufacturers. It is felt by wholesale mer
chants in all lines of goods. The conditions
of trade have visibly improved aud the feel
ing is consequently a better one. There is
yet much complaint of slow collections, but
the moving crop will iu time bring rebel.
Orders for goods from points adj cent and
remote are being received in usual quantities
at the factories, and many demands re ur
gent so that full forces will be employed, in
some instances, for extra time, fronts gen
erally are light and business is being done
on small margins, but for the most part upon
a safe basis.

I desire te remind you of the fact that I am still in the Warehouse business at my
old stand, aud call your attention to the following reasons why 1 think it will be to your
interest to store your grain with me:

trausportation on the river, and secure the very lowest freight rates.

for your grain as any body else. Sacks always on hand.
