PROBABILITY" OF ISDIAX WAR.
It Can Be Avoided or Courted. aa the
' Government Chooses.
Washington, March 24. The war de
partment is taking advantage of the ces
sation of hostilities among the Indians of
Dakota, and has been engaged in gather
ing authentic information as to the prob
ability of another outbreak this spring.
Careful investigation has been made by
officers serving as agents at Pine Ridge
and Rosebud agencies, and their reports
are not altogether reassuring. In sub
stance, these officers assert that there
need or need not be trouble, just as the
government desires. An outbreak can
be prevented, or, on the other hand,
very little will fan the slumbering feel
ings of the aborigines into a fierce flame;
that is to say, the whole case rests upon
the care exercised in the distribution of
appropriations. If the Indians get
promptly what is due them, and there is
not much haggling, there will be peace,
but the moment the government at
tempts to pinch the Dakota tribes, the
hitherto friendly Indians who do not feel
very complacent aver the late trips to
Washington, will, it is predicted, surely
revolt. These Indians are at present in
the majority in the Dakotas, as the most
hostile chiefs have been taken by an In
dian show for a European phow-trio and
the remaining hostile are thus short of
leaders. They realize perfectly well that
the chiefs are not held as hostages, but
have gone as a matter of enterprise, and
so they -would be necessarily deterred
irom an outbreak from fear of retaliation
on their followers. These absent chiefs.
however, are perhaps the worst fighters
or tne nation.

ported to have offered the chancellor

the kaiser that he cannot accept if he is

cellor Caprivi is impatient at the emner-
or's whims. The chancellor has a will
of his own and has, it is stated on several
occasions expressed dissent to the views
of the kaiser's policy, whereas the latter
treats him as an instrument to carry out
his plesaure. The chancellor is said to
have been much hurt because the em
peror communicated directly with the
pope on the subject of returning to the
church the money withheld during the
heat of the culturkampf . The chancel

THE SUGAR TRUST.
An Attempt to Cheat the Government
Out of 2 1-2 Cents a Pound.
New York, March 24. The sugar
trust, in anticipation of a heavy loss on
a Large amount - of sugar . held by the
concern April 1 is getting in some .fine
work to protect themselves, as outlined
by a well-informed sugar man. : The
move seems to be nothing short of a plan
to make the government pay over to the
trust more than enough to cover the loss
in -selling these goods at the April de
cline.: . The law provides for a drawback
of 2-cents per pound on export sugars,
and the same drawback is precisely what
the trust is . no w believed to . be after.
The popular opinion in that the sugar
will be sent abroad in order to secure
the drawback and then he brought back
and sold at April prices.

A CORNER IN WHEAT.
Millions of Dollars Invested In an At
tempt to Increase the Price.
Chicago, March 24 j Local papers say
there have been rumors on the board of
trade for some time to the effect that a
"corner" was l)eing worked: on May
wheat, the corners having begun to buy
when the price was about 90 or 94 cents.
Rumor variously pointed to a combina
tion of New York and Chicago men and
to a clique of Chicagoans exclusively.
Now it is asserted it has been learned
that many of the biiying orders have
come from New York, and chiefly
through commission houses here con
nected by private wires with Wall street.
It is said the purchases of the manipu
lators must be high up in the millions.
Local speculators have a shortage which
aggregates thirty ' to forty million
bushels. If the clique holds half of this
and succeeds in their supposed intention
of working prices up to $1 25 the profits
would aggregate over five millions. .
, THE NEW ORLEANS SENSATION.
Sensational Facts Gleaned by the Grand
Jury lu the Bribery Allegations.
New Orleans, March 24. The grand
jurv held another long ' session today,
and from witnesses examined it is evi
dent that that body is getting into the
bribery business, and sensational devel
opments are expected. The sensation
will doubtless be the indictment of a
prominent . party not heretofore men
tioned in connection with the unsavory
part of the case. Many of the witnesses
in the last few days have been surprised
to find themselves called and protested
they knew nothing until they got into
the jury room. O'Malley has not yet
been brought back, although a capias
has has been issued, and it is unlikely he
will be sought for until the grand jury is
through with the investigation. Mayor
Shakespeare's wife is said to have been
stopped on the street by several Italians,
and threatened with the destruction of
her home and family.

Bismarck Waiting: Developments.
London, March 24. A Hamburg cor
respondent says that Prince Bismarck is
understood to" be looking forward with
considerable interest to the publication
of the kaiser's life of William I., and
that upon the statements made in that
publication will greatly depend the
future couise of the ex-chancellor. The
prince is said to apprehend that the
book will endeavor to belittle his share
in the work of founding the German em
pire. In that case, his friends say, the
