THE records show that from July 4, 1770, to Juno 30, 1886, the Indians cost the Government $929,239,000, or about $1,000 for every buck, squaw and papoose in tho country at the time of the first •White settlement. Tun tenth century was one prolific of false Christs, not less than eight or ton so-called "Messiahs" making their appearance and being ministered to by a greater or loss multitude of deluded followers during that century.

He no longer permits her to take any prominent part in court functions, and al,though his wife, tho Empress, expects .Soon to retire for a season, the Emperor #ehows a disposition to be his own "lead- -Astg lady" rather than permit his mother to appear in that capacity. PITTSBURGH, once the smokiest city in the country, is likely to regain that unenviable distinction again after a respite which has been enjoyable but all too brief. The decrease in the supply of natural gas is becoming more rapid and it is estimated that early next year this cheap and clean fuel will no longer be available for manufacturing purposes. It will, doubtless, be furnished for some time longer to private houses, hut the price is advancing and will continue to -.advance.

DETROIT, Mich., Dec. 13.— At the morning session of the American Federation of Labor convention a resolution was adopted which set forth that occasion was taknn during tho Philadelphia Centennial by employers to flood Europe with advertisements that thoro was plenty of work in this country, whon thoro worn thousands of idle men, and that tho country was in turn Hooded with unnoeded labor. The resolution asked action by tho federation to dead off such possible immigration during the Chicago world's fair. « Resolutions extending sympathy to the Alabama coal minors whoso executive board had boon put in jail charged with conspiracy, and favoring woman siilfrago worn favorably reported. A unanimous report indorsed the secretary's report, which pushed the night- hour day forward, and was concurred in by tho convention. A grievance was road from a vSouth- orn machinists' union regarding proposed affiliation, and ono of tho delegates aroso to denounce ft section of the constitution which confined admission to white mon. A resolution excluding ssnc.h local unions as draw thu color or race lino was olTornd, and finally, after considerable dcbato, a request, was added to the resolution asking tho Southern unions to strike tho color Hue from their constitutions, and thn whole was referred to tho executive committee for action on that basis. The committee on tho President's report declared that while tho Federation does not recommend strikes, still they must be considered as inevitable under the present social system. Tho desirability of an International Labor Congress at Chicago in 1893 was impressed upon the delegates. The idea of a general Federation label was indorsed. Gov- onors of States were urged to make tho first Monday in September a general holiday. Tho resolution opposing tho employment of Pinkorton polico was adopted. A hot debato followed upon ,n effort to place tho Federation on record ag.iinst tho Knights of Labor, but President (lompors succeeded in having it dropped. SOME time ago a newspaper described vaseline as a beautiful substitute for lather in shaving, closing with the statement that tho man who uses vaseline once will be so delighted that ho will kick his mug, brush and soap out of tho house. This was not the rock-ribbed and everlasting truth, but all tho same a great many persons tried tho vaseline experiment. Each man of them has constituted himself a committee of one on slaughter and is lying in ambush for the man who wrote up vaseline as an aid to easy shaving. THE Indians have a theory that every white deer has a "mad stone" in its Stomach. They believe that the "Great Spirit" places this stone in the white fleer's stomach to absorb poisons which that delicate animal may take in while Bating grass. In 1848, Captain Wilson of Alabama killed a white doe. Knowing the Indian superstition he opened the animal and found a spongy stone as large as a man's fist. This stone, as tho property of W. B. Somors, of Fort Worth, Tex., has boon used successfully in cases of hydrophobia and snake bite. AN experiment was made at the naval proving grounds in Annapolis, to ascertain what effect cold will have oil an armor-plate. A Holtzer six-inch projectile was fired at a nickel armor-plate, •which had been frozen to a point 4 degrees below zero. The shot was of the eaine character as those used in the teals several months ago. The projectile penetrated the plate ' about the same distance that the previous shots did, but did not go through it, and as far as could be observed, bad no greater effect on the plate in tho way of breaking'them than when it was at the normal temper- .*i i -A* - REDSKINS FALL OUT.

D., Dec. 12.—Yank ton Charlie, a full- looded Sioux-, and Government scout, came in at a o'clock Thursday morning from the Indian camp in tho Bad Lands and reports a bloody fight among the followers of tho Indian Chiefs Short Hull and Two Striko. Each claimed tho leadership and each tried to secure it by force. Tho result is from twenty to fifty dead Indians. This report is verified by several fricndlies who have been waiting for som« time to escape to the agency. As tho .spies took advantage of tho fight to make their escape it is not known yot which chief conquered. Largo reinforcements have como in from Standing Rock and other agencies. It is said that when tho chiefs returned from tho agency a council was hold. Two Strike and his followers favored peace, hut Kicking Boar, Shori Bull and other chiefs, composing tho majority of the camp, took decided ground on tho other side. The council lasted soverul hours, during which thu excitement reached tho highest pitch, and finally broke up in a tight. FORT LINCOLN, N.

DUBLIN, Deo. 11. — The newspaper United Ireland tm got into trouble through its persistent advocacy of the retirement of Mr. Parnell. Mr. Parnell is one of tho directors of the company owning tho paper and acting in that capacity yesterday he seized the plant of the paper, stopped the issue of the current edition und ejected the acting editor, Mr. Bodkin. Barrister Kelly,' Mr. Henry Campbell, Mr. Parnell's private secretary, and Mr. Mahoney, member of Parliament, wore present when the seizure was made. When Mr. Bodkin entered the office he found Mr. Parnell in possession. Mr. Parnell, in tho presence of the other directors, road tho articles of association under which the company was organized, and then ordered the sheriff to eject Mr. Bodkin. Tho latter mado an ineffectual resistance. A desperate row occurred in tho down-stairs offlco between the sheriff's officers and tho sub- editors. Sticks and stones were used aa weapons, and tho air was filled with flying missiles. Finally, after a sharp and fierce struggle, tho sub-editors wero put out of tho building. It is stated that Mr. Parnell owns 474 of the 500 shams into which the capital stock of tho United Ireland Company is divided, and that Dr. Joseph E. Kenny and Mr. Justin McCarthy own the remainder. Tho editors who wore ejected from the office will sue Mr. Parnell for assault. DDusLix, Dec. 11—Late last night a strong party of Mr. Parnell's opponents made a descent upon and recaptured tho offices of United Ireland. The invaders destroyed all tho "leaders" which had been prepared by Mr. Leamy, who was installed as editor by Mr. Parnoll, and turned all the matter that they found set up into the fire. Then they took possession of tho ledgers and other books and documents belonging to the concern. All this was done in tho name of William O'Brien. A strong posse from various laborers' societies has been left as a garrison, with instructions to remain on guard day and night and to resist by force any further intrusion by Mr. Par- noil and his friends. ANTI-PAJ«ET,T,ITE MANIFESTO. LONDON, Dec. 11.—Tbe anti-Parnell members of the Irish Parliamentary party havo issued their promised manifesto to tho Irish people. There aro forty-seven signatures attached to the manifesto, headed by that of Mr. Justin McCarthy. la it they say: "Feeling bound to protect our country's cause, at whatever personal sacrifice, we found ourselves under the sad necessity of terminating Mr. Parnell's leadership. It would have been easier to have left him undisturbed; but such a course would have left every man of us a traitor to his country. Mr. Parnell, disregarding our appeals to remember the country, evinced an ill-judged determination to maintain his untenable position, thus threatening to plunge Ireland into a-conflict which may overwhelm it and cause its present i'air prospects to disappear forever. It is the duty of Irishmen now, irrespective oJ all consideration ot feelings either for Mr. Parnoll or these differing from him, to adopt a course that will tend to save Ireland from destruction." After detailing various reasons for their ae- tions the signers of the manifesto udd that whatever judgment Ireland may paas upon the manifesto the cause hangs on the issue, and the' signers will abide by that judgment, they being the nation's servants. They enumerate the charges against'Parnell as follows: "t He speaks as it ho was the-injured party, whereas he alone-is responsible-for the present deplorable situation. "2: He pledged himself to repel the charges in connection witJi the O'Shea case, but when the time came to do this he remained silenl. "S. He does not hesitate to renounce and denounce tho multitudes of English friends of Irish liberty as English wolves. "4. But the English wolves and the Irish Bishops express the same opinion of Mr; Parnell, and he can not mend matters by calling nicknames. "5. Tho reminder of the Leinster re-election w*s the most ungenerous taunt ever uttered. Tho effort to sustain Purnoll without playing Ireland false is made a cause o! attack, whereas it ought to be a vindication. Tho signers position before Ireland is dwelt upon at length. They sot forth that Mr. Parnell's re-election was due to gratitude Jor past services and his deposition to the fact that if he continued as loader the struggle might as well have been abandoned. The manifesto says: He (Mr. Parnell) must be aware that his personality obstructs efforts for freedom and leaves Ireland with nothing for many years but the abominable system imposed by tho present Government. If he is re-olocted tbo Tory Government will resume power, coercion receive a new lease, and the struggle for home rule be lost to tho living generation. The final Question, which rests with the Irish nation, is: "Lose all for Parnell, or win all without him." Home rule with Gladstone in safe. The signers say they refuse to abandon Mr. Gladstone for Mr. Parnell, or to insist on tho Liberal leader's revealing bis plans for homo rule, which action, they say, would be foolishly to give an advantage to Ireland's foes. Tt<o signers refuse [to liulieve that Mr. Gladstone desired to dictate. He was bound to piullsh his conviction that the retention of Jlv. Parnell in the leadership of the Irish party 'vould wreck home rulo. Why should a man of SI waste tho brief remnant of his life in a struggle foredoomed to failure? The signers offered Fame!? an opportunity of temporary retirement, with a view to his eventual reinstatement, but ho never gave tho faintest chance of a settlement. His fatal manifesto was an appeal to the hatred between the peoples of Great Britain und Ireland and makes it impossible for him hereafter to co-operate with the Libjral party. TUc signers ne\v>r deserted Mr. Parnell, but ho them, and the honor of Ireland is safe iu their hands through good or evil fortune. The signers pledge themselves to remain an independent party, thus securing final victory for the Irish cause under the auspices of the alliance of the Biitish democracy and the Irish people. Tho manifesto concludes thus: ''Fellow-countrymen, the issue we submit to you is ouo upon which the fortunes of out country must depend. May God distend the right." KILLED AT A CROSSING.

Tho police witnessed the affair, but did not interfere in any way. After he had succeeded in recapturing the office Mr. Parnell wont to a window and addressed the crowd outside. Hosaidthatho xvould flght the battle to the last, that he would only allow tho country to decide tho issue, and that ho would submit to tho dictation of no man. Ho appeared to bo fiercely excited, and to have lost his usual self-control. To guard against any further attempt on tho part of Mr. Parnoll's opponents to recapture tho odice, no one was allowed to onter and the doors and windows woro closely bolted and barred. Mr. Parnoll was accompanied by the stall of editors ho appointed Wednesday, and when the odico was secured against intruders, all conversation with outsiders was carried on through a keyhole. When Mr. I'urnoll mado the assault upon tho odico, ho himself was armed with a crow-bar, which ho used in forcing the front door. In tho afternoon Mr. Parnoll started for Cork. At Cork an immense crowd had gathered, and the arrival of the train was the signal for an extraordinary outburst of enthusiasm.

DUBLIN, Dec. 13.—It coming to* the knowledge of Mr. Leamy, who was. appointed editor of the United] Ireland' by Mr, Parnell and other Parnellites, that an anti-Parnell edition of that paper would be issued from the office of the Nation (T. D. Sullivan's paper) steps were taken to secuae an injunction against the Nation's publisher. The count; granted the writ prayed for restraining: the publisher of tho Nation from issuing the edition) in question. Notwithstanding the issuance of the writ the forbidden edition made its appearance. A wagon loaded with copies, of the anti-Parnell edition of United Ireland was driven to the Kings Bridge railway station, it being the intention tO' load them oni a train for distribution in the south of Ireland. A* the wagon drow up at the station, two men, on& of whom had his face covered with a mask, and the other with a drawn revolver, sprang upon the vehicle and compelled tho driver to- proceed with bis load to the island bridge. When they arrived upon the bridge tho two men flung all the papers into the Litfey viver. On the arrival of Mr. Parnell's United Ireland at Castle Island Friday a crowd seized tho papers and burned them. Parnell's journey to Kilkenny was without incident till the train reached Athay. Hero a crowd had gathered which hootod and groaned at Parnell. Thoy shouted: "To with Parnell!" and gave three cheers for the bishops and priests and cried: "Long live Dillon and O'Brien!" At the othei' stations passed there were gathered knots of people who cheered Mr. Parnell. At Forl Arlington the crowd was divided. Half cheered and half groaned. Borne one said to Parnoll: "May the curse of God melt you and your adherents!" An almost equally violent crowd was at Kilkenny station. Sixty polico mado a passage. The Working-men's club received him and there was great cheering. A torchlight procession, headed by the corporation officials, was in waiting, and upon the arrival of the train escorted Mr. Pi'.rnoll to his hotel, where he addressed tho crowd briefly. greet, him. After a storm of cheers Mr. Parnoll, in reply to an address, spoke in tho vein that marked his Dublin speech. fil.ADSTONK SPKAKS. LONDON, Dec. 1'A—Mr. Gladstone has gone t.o his homo at, llawarden. At Rotford ho addressed a meeting ot 2,000 persona. Ilo said the continuance of Mr. Parnell in tho Irish leadership would he fatal to home rule in England, Scotland and Wales. Parnell was no longer tho loader of tho Irish Nationalists, who had separated themselves from him. lie -(Gladstone) admitted that tbo Irish party ought to be independent, and that tho consideration and settlement of this question ought to bo left to them; but there was something beyond all considerations in Irish politics, namely, the great cause of Liberalism in England, Ireland and Scotland. The confidential communications between the Liberal and Home Rule parties and tho conversation with Mr. Parnoll at Hawarden in November, 1889, he said, were equally satisfactory to both parties, a fact that was proved not by himself, because' ho had no reason publicly to speak about it, but by tho other party. Ho believed that the O'Shea divorce proceedings would entirely destroy tho moral force needed in Ireland for any ono who would be ttae leading champion of tho National cause. The Liberals felt that in granting homo rule, they constituted the Irish loader the constitutional ruler of Ireland. The Liberals wero unwilling, after what had happened in the divorce court, relative to tho private and public conduct of Mr. Parnoll, to make him tbo constitutional Governor of Ireland. It was absolutely untrua that Mr. Morloy had suggested that MB. Parnell) bold oflice under the British crown before hoove rule was conceded. The Liberal party's work in Parliament was to resist, coercion in Ireland, and thah work was as sacred and as urgent no-w as it had ever been, no matter who might be-the loader of the Irish party. MORE MANIFESTOS. NEW YOKK, Dee. 12.—Tho Irish "envoys" have issued a long address to the American, pooplo upon the issue between Parnoll anil-his opponents. The manifesto is signed by all but Harrington. It goes on to restate tho position of the envoys on the controversy between Parnell and Gladstone in much the sain® words as were used in the Chicago manifested In conclusion it says: "Finally our cans* once rescued from its present deadly peril, our race may icst assured that nothing which tho tenderness or devoted: colleagues can do will be left undone 10 heal whatever wounds may have been Inldici.ed In the beat of strife and to di> justice ta Mr. Parnell's genius in bis \Tork, so that history may drop a tear over the error of a passionate hour and may retnem- her ooly the great Irishman and born leader, who (ouDd the Irish cause plunged in despair and whose arm has Hlted that cause to the pinnacle of power ami triumph." LONDON, Dee. 12. — The executive committee of the Liberal-Unionist Association has issued a manifesto, which concludes as follows: •"Parnell and tho Parnellites have always ooen an untrustworthy body, upon whose pledges no reliance could be placed and whose Parliamentary antecedents maile them unfit and unsafe allies for any grout party, and recent, events must have forced this consideration upon the minds of many home-rulers. No distinction can be made between Paroeli and his adherents and tl>e majority ot his party who seek to depose him. The latter condoned his delinquencies and accepted his policy and now make sacrillee of him as a means of extorting fresh terms from their allies. The mistakes the British home rulers madn was in allowing themselves to be convinced that cither the methods or the objects of the Irish revolutionaries bad changed. Neither the Parnellite faction nor the seceders will ever accept homo r ule without mental reservation for absolute separation and complete Irish independence. Any scheme for home rule bused upou other Irish declarations is and, always bad Wen illusory." SOUTHERN BANKS SUSPEND.
