WASHINGTON, Sept. 8.—Senator Davis hag been before the general land office in which he makes a claim in behalf of she State of Minnesota for valuable lands in the ceded Cliippewa lands for the benefit of the state schools. The claim is for sections 10 and 86, in the White Earth and Red Lake reservations, making about 200,000 acres out of the y.000,000 acres ceded. Most of these lands are covered with standing pine and are \vorth a great deal of money. The land office is preparing to appraise and sell the lands, and Senator Davis told Commissioner Carter that if the government saw fit it could appraise tha sections, 16 and 88, but he wanted to call a halt upon the matter of selling them. Commissioner Carter said ho would have the matter looked up, as it presented a question of great importance. It is presumed the Indians and the Indian defense cranks will make an outcry of opposition, as the ceded lands are to be disposed of and the money to remain a fund for the benefit of the Chippewas. Filod ii AVritton Brief. After making the verbal protest Senator Davis filed a written brief setting forth: "The supreme court of the United Statas has distinctly held that section ll> of all lands granted in each 'ownship which had not been sold or •itherwise disposed of, should, as an unalterable condition of admission to the Union, be granted to the State of Wisconsin for the use of her schools." The Stockbridge and Munsei Indian lands were disposed of in 1870, exactly as the White Earth and Red Lake lands nre now being disposed of, and tlio supreme court of the United States settled the question in favor of Wisconsin. The act admitting Minnesota to the Union is in exactly the same, words used when Wisconsin was admitted, except that Wisconsin was only granted section Iti.while Minnesota., was granted sections 16 and 8(5 in each township. The lands in question are worth about $1,000,000. SLAUGHTERED BANDITS. DESPERATE FIGHT BETWEEN TRAIN ROBBERS AND A POSSE. Tliirtecn of the Former unit Two of the Latter Killed mid Mnny Wounded. Tlu-eo Montana Cnttlo Thieves Lynched 1>y Cowboys. UVALDE. Tex., Sept. G.—The train robbers who were thought to have escaped across the Rio Grande with a sum, said to be $20,000, which they secured from the express cr-x on the Southern Pacific, were met Friday by a body of rangers who had been in pursuit, and a battle took place. From reports received thirteen of the robbers and two rangers were killed and several of both sides were wounded. The rangers followed what was thought to be the course pursued by the robbers, through mountain passes, and althoitgh they had at several times lost the trail they pulled up on the robbers. Thursday they discovered un^- inistakable signs that the men were but a few miles ahead of them and were headed toward Las Vegas. The pursuers pulled up on the bandits strongly and made better time, for after pushing on a portion of the night they were rewarded by falling in with the outlaws. The engagement was short, as the bandits were outnumbered. They held the best pov-i'ion, however, and stood their ground until their dead and wounded was so great that resistance was imposr sible, and then the remainder fled. It is said that two men escaped. CATTLE THIEVES LYNCHED. Eastern Montana Ciittltmcn Talce tho I/ii\v in Their Own Hunds. HELENA, Mon., Sept. 4.—There have been many complaints from Eastern Montana, lately, by cattle men, of the stealing of stock by thieves. The inspectors are UOAV busy at shipping points, so the "rustlers," as the .thieves are called, have a good chance to ply their trade. Down in Ouster county, about eighty miles from a railroad, cattlemen have taken the matter in their own hands. Jack Moore, who came in from that section, says that just before he left home a cowboy came to his ranch with the news that Jerry Thompson, a notorious rsistler, and two companions, had been caught changing the brands on cattle and were all hanged to the same tree. This is the first lynching of cattle thieves in Montana for a number of years. _____ A THOUSAND HOMELESS. tstallion records for pacers. both trotters and -eil a Child.

A. liriutt'h of tho Alliance Tluit Is Pledged to I'st- ISiiHotK If NcreHsury. KANSAS CITY, Mo., Aug. 81—The Star says: It transpired during the recent state meeting of the Farmers' Alliance at Warrensburg, Mo., that there was an organization within the Alliance winch believed in force as a measure to obtain the objects of the Alliance. It was the knowledge of the existence of this ' 'force element" that defeated the sub-treasury resolution which was championed especially by the latter element. The force party bad forty-eight delegates in the convention. One of them, speaking to a reporter about the organization", -said: "If the minority will not do what the majority wills, it is high time for the majority to hang the minority. If ballots won't do the bxasiness, bullets will, and there are a lot of us pledged to go that far." Ex-President Hall, who asserts that his life has been declared a forfeit in the underground meetings of the people, was and is keenly alive to this existence. The secret order calls itself the "anti- monopolists," but very few, if any, farmers belong to it. Its strength lies mainly in the cities, and th» farmer.-? are its cut-paws to rake its political chestnuts from the fire. The Dalles, Or., Five Proves to Have ISeon Wcm;e Tliiin lit First Hciiorted. THE DALLES, Or., Sept. 4.—Wednesday's disastroxis lire rendered over 1,000 person homeless and entails a financial loss of nearly §1,000,000. Many of the sufferers lost everything they had in the world, and the mayor has appointed a committee to receive contributions for the sufferers. The fire burned over an area of eighteen blocks and destroyed among othor buildings tho opera house, tho Vogt block, the Methodist, Baptist and Congregational churches, Gibbons, McAllister & Co.'s implement warehouse, the Billion Eros.' and E. P. Fitzgerald's stores and between 500 and 600 residences. Many persons wore sheltered at the Cosmopolitan and Umatilla Houseu, which escaped tho flames. So far as can be learned only one serious accident occurred. This was J. P. Fitzgerald who was severely burned about the body and hands. E:;rly in the evening the mayor placed the city uuder martial la,w which prevailed during the entire night. All suspicious characters v.-re put in ;jail until morning when they were ordered to leave the city. Tke militia and deputy sheriffs have been withdrawn. IMPURE WATER. NOT RAILROAD LANDS. A Decision Ki'iiilercd in i'uvor of Settlors on the 3Iille Lactt lieservutlou. .WASHINGTON, Sept. 4.—Secretary Noble lias rendered a decision in tuo case of the Northern Pacific railroad and St. Paul and Duluth railroad against Amanda J. Walters and others. The laiuik 1 , fnvolved are within what it; known, as the Mille Lacs Indian reservation, in Minnesota, and the question was whether they could be taken by the railroads as indemnity. The secretary holds that the Indians had such a right to the.se lands under the provisions of the treaty of 1864, which allowed them to remain upon them during good behavior, as prevented their selection as railroad indemnity lands. The case is, therefore, decided against the railroad companies in effect, and in favor of a large- number of Flv« Michigan People Succumb to Its Poisonous ICfi'ectn. DUNDEE, Mich., Sept. 0.— Five people have died in this vicinity from poisonous effects from water from a well. Something over two weeks since a thrashing crew was at work on Gilson's place. The engine drew its supply of water from the well on the premises. The well is not an abundant one, and as a result of the n-i'isual demand upon it the water bee:. • very low. It was observed to be nuaer muddy and repulsive to the taste, but it was the only water on the place and everybody drank of it as usual. Those who have died are three children of GHlson and two farm hands. Two others are affected. Cotton Pickers to Strike. GALVESTOX, Tex..

The Duluth and Winnipeg will build through to Winnipeg as originally intended, and will also draw on the Dakota wheat fields via Crookston. When tho road IB ocmplet- ed the Canadian Pacific will abandon, its line from Port Arthur east along the shore of Lake Superior to ita junction with the Smilt branch. Duluth will then be its chief shipping port on Lake Superior, and will be an important point for the handling of winter all-rail shipments from coast to coast." FOR MAKING BINDING TWINE.

WASHINGTON, Sept. 6.—The Sunday Gazette prints an interview with what it terms "a prominent Maine politician," who is known to be a congressman from that state, and says ho is authority for tho statement that Secretary Blaine has coiisented to be a candidate for tho presidency should he be the unquestioned choice of the Republican convention. The Maine man is quoted as follows: "I attended a conference held at Port- laud, Me., at which were present Senators Hale and Frye and Joe Manley, at which the subject of Mr. Elaine's candidacy was discussed. Mr. Manley announced that he was authorized to say for Blaino that ho would accept the nomination if it was tendered him with unanimity. It was then and there agreed that Maine should send a Blaine delegation to the convention, and these results were communicated to a number »f Mr. Elaine's friends in other states. "Mr. Blaino will be nominated. Mark my prediction; not even President Harrison, with all the power of officeholders at his back, could wrest the nomination from him, were he so disposed. There will be but one name before the convention—the magical name of Blaine— and he will be elected, too, whether the Democrats run against him his former r/ompetitor, Grover Cleveland, or an entirely new man."

Way Mftlce I>o» AuffUfl- l**GRfctuxt »f Ch'tti. Mft LONDON, Atig, 81— It is reported here 6n the strength of statements made by the Congressional agents in Paris and London that Don Augustin Edwards Will be the next president of Chili. He is one of the wealthiest, if not the wealthiest, of Chilians, and in the early period of the insurrection ho supplied funds lavishly for tho support of the revolutionary cause. He baa many friends in the higher class in England and on the continent, and ia largely interested in the nitrate trade. Ho has a r.plendid farm in Chili, which, up to the time of the war, was stocked with the best blooded cattle that money could obtain in Europe. These cattle, during the war, were slaughtered for food for Balmaceda's troops, and the property of Edwards both in the city tmd country was laid waste. He narrowly escaped with his own life. The Congressional- ists have always looked to him as their leading representative, although he has not taken an active personal part in naval or military affairs. The Con- gressionalists have, within tho few days, brought strong pressure to bear on the British foreign office to secure British influence against the transfer to Balma- , ceda of the silver shipped from Valparaiso in a British war vessel. There is very little likelihood that the treasure will be turned over to Balmaceda. Instructed to Kecogiiize Iimirgcnts. NEW YORK, Sept.

Dr. Iiorimcr Gives Expression to Very Liberal Doctrine in a Sermon at Chicago. CHICAGO, Sept. 6.— To an audience filling the big new Fourth Baptist church Rbv. George C. Lorimer, of Tre- montTernple.Boston, preached Sunday a a dedicatory sermon, eloquent in style and spirit, and startling in liberalism. Dr. Lorimer placed a liberal construction upon many things which orthodoxy has considered fundamental. He declared that the peculiar sanctity of the communion, the priest and the church edifice has passed away. Pie said that the doctrine that God is the father of only a few millions of souls having immediate fellowship with him, and not of the whole world, is "a slander on the Almighty." And, perhaps, most significant of all, he took issue with the Sabbatarians who are just now proclaiming- the doctrine of strict Sunday observance in this city, in an effort to appyit to the world's fair. Dr. Lorimer s words on this subject Avere of a general character, but their meaning could not be misconstrued. "There is," he declared, '-no longer any sacred time. The spirit of. the Fourth commandment remain*, but its letter is passed away." Sunday., he' said, should be appropriately observed, "but it ought not to be accounted sacred." The effect of Dr. Lorimer's sermon was visible in the strained, surprised and- sometimes shocked attention of a portion of his hearers, and in the involuntary admiration of others, which at times threatened tolxL-oairfoiiii' in applause. THE EMBARGO RAISED. Germany Consents to tho Importation of the American Hoy. BERLIN, Sept. 4.— The ReichcJsgeset- blatte publishes an order that the prohibition of the importation of swine, pork, sausages of Aiiieriaui origin shall , no lonyer be enforced when such livo pig or hog products are furnished with official certificates stating that they ' have been examined in accordance vchci American regulations nnd found free from qualities dangoroua to health. Tho chancellor has sent instructions to the proper officials that the order be given immediate effect. UuKlt Notified. WASHINGTON, Sept. 4.— Secretary Rusk has received official notice that the German government has raised the embargo on American pork. The agreement relative to the admission of pork into Germany was signed at Cape May about ten days ago, but at the request of the German government the fact was withheld from the public press until official action could be taken by the home government. The agreement not only provides for the admittance of our pork into Germany, but also affords to the United States the same schedule with reference to our farm products as that enjoyed by Russia.
