WHY THE AMEER WENT TO
Washington, Jan. 11. The presi
dent lias issued an order setting apart
lands on Salt river, Arizona, as a
reservation for the Pimas and Marico
pais. Yankton, Jan. 11. A special from
the Cheyenne river aqency says that
two runers from Sitting Bull's camp
have just arrived. They say that
they are willing to come in and sur
render their horses and arms and sub
mit to agency rules if they are guar
anteed protection by the government
and the traders.
Washington, Jan. 11. Eight stills
have been seized in Stanley county,
North Carolina, and eight distillers
arrested. One of the raiding party
was shot. Seizures were also made
at Bennettsville and "Waltata, South
Carolina, but the property taken at the
latter place was recaptured by a band
Chicago, Jan. 11. The Times Port
Ilobinson correspondent gives the fol
lowing description of the scenes at
tending the hunting of escaped Indi
ans Thursday night; Having got lip
with the guard, who were only fifty
yards behind the retreating savages,
the entire command poured volley
after volloy into the renegades with
terribly fatal results, killing over
twenty and wounding as many more
before the savages succeeded in gain
ing the hills.
The Times correspondent visited
the place where the dead bodies were
collected, awaiting burial at noon to
day. The pile consisted of twenty
bucks, eight squaws and two papooses.
Their grinning vissages, as they lay
there on the snow in death's cold em
brace and nearly naked, presented a
sight that beggars description.
Paris, Jan. 11. The government
proposes to pardon all the communists
except 400 ringleaders, who were par
ticipators in the massacres
London. Jan. 11. A correspon
dent at Berlin says of the proposed
bill effecting the rekhstag, that it
practically abolishes all guarantees of
freedom of debate. "While the bill it
is in the power of the majority to
turn any offending member over to
the courts. It makes it a penal of

speech which has been censured by

Kome Jan, 11. The pope's ency?.
clical letter occupies seven columns of
the Osservatore Romano. The pope
inveighs against socialism, commu
nism, and nihilism, which militate no
lorvger secretly, bui openly, against
the civil state, rupturing the matri
monial tie, ignoring the rights of
property, claiming everything, now-
over legally inherited or honestly- ac
quired, and attempting even the lives
St. Petersburg, Jan. 11. The
ameer entered Russian territory,
not in consequence of ' the suc
cess of the British, but, to invoke, the
mediation of Russia. The ameer
will receive sympathetic popularity,
but the idea of mediation, is. an. illii--sion,

"The time has long since passed
when mechanical trades provided our
sons with a living. Labor-saving ma
chinery, patent tools and steam have
robbed the trade of the future it offered
to our boys in the days of the indentured
apprentice system. The idlers and do
nothings of our metropolitan cities are
composed largaly of tradesmen and
professional men, and merchandising is
a failure, if the number of bankrupt
merchants who had to succumb to the
p-? 'sure of the times can be taken as a
criterion. What the country needs is pro
duceis, and the waste fields of unculti
vated land offers an opportunity to place
the rising generation in the way of mak

times for posterity.
