Cattlemen Ordered to Be Turned Over to the State AnteorUles— A Florida Paymaster and a Companion Found Murdered and Robbed. CHEYENNE, Wy., April 16.—Reports from the scene of the cattle war indicate that the trouble has by no means been ended by the arrival of United States troops. The feeling stirred up by the killing of Champion and Bay is extremely bitter and as soon as the soldiers are taken away hostilities will likely be resumed. The worst of the situation is that Guerrilla warfare is likely to be the result and men picked off singly by concealed marksmen as they ride along lonely trails. The prisoners charged with the killing of Bay and Champion are to betaken to Douglas to await the action of the grand jury and there is a probability of an attempt to lynch them, with a general fight probable. ORDERED TURNED OVER. Secretary of W«r Issueg Instructions Be- fiaff Jlne Montana Cattlemen. CHEYENNE, Wy., April 17.—General Brooke, at Omaha, commanding the department of the Platte.has notified Governor Barber that he had been instructed by th* secretary of war to deliver to him the forty odd cattlemen now at F<j>rt McKinney. No news h&a beau received here for the past .;r«nty-f!oo* hours from Johnston county and &6 rustlers are supposed to have 4tt| tto wires to Buffalo. Efforts h$S been made^to get dispatches through but have failed. Governor Barber is anxious to get communication with Fort McKinney. It is now admitted that the removal of the prisoners from Fort McKinney to Douglas would be very hazardous, M it is certain tbe rustlers will try to kill them on the way. Every hour adds a more serious aspect to the situation. The friends of the invading cattlemen are sure they cannot get jug* tice in Wyoming except in.this city. Governor Barber has not notified General Brooke whether he will receive the prisoners. Public sentiment is turning in favor of the rustlers, MURDERED AND RQ8BEP. A. Florida P»yniait«r and » 9f»U Carrier Killed for Their Mono/. QCALA, Pla., April 10. -A telegram just received here by the operator of the Silver Springs, OcaJa and Gulf road says that two men were murdered near Bernando, Citrus county. Their names are Robert Stevenson, paymaster of the Empire State Phosphate company of that place, and a Mr. Payne, a mail cur- rier. They are said to have been murdered for their money, as Stevenson was in Ocala during the day making up bis pay rolls and took back the money with bjiu to pay off the men, having drawn .300 at the Merchants U^jonal bank, bodies werf w«nj ^ % m & this ' VICTIMS OF THE FLOOD, NUMBER OF LIVES LOST IN MISSISSIPPI PLACED AT 250. HAY & RICE, Over ISO-Bodies Already RecuYflfftd by Rflllcf Parties Sent Out—Terrible Tales of Suffering Caused by Exposure and Want of Food—Water Subsiding. ABERDEEN, Miss.. April 16.—The water in the Tomhigbee river is subsiding, leaving a black desolate waste. Late reports which have reached here indicate that the loss by the flood will be greater than at firstestimated. From the most reliable information to be obtained from the flooded district it is known that the number of lives lost will reach 250, while all vestige of household property has been swept away by the raging torrent. Belief parties have been sent out and more than 150 bodies have already been recovered. Thousands of people are rendered homeless and the suffering is intense. A relief party has rescued a family of nine persons who had been adrift on a raft for six day without a mouthful of food. They Were Insane from Huncer and went wild over the sight of food. One of the party, a lad of 14 years, had become a gibbering idiot and devoured raw beef like a wild beast. A colored woman and her infant was found floating on a mattress. They had been without food for three days and the babe is so emaciated that it will die. Her family of eight children were all drowned. The loss of property is so great that it cannot be accurately estimated at present. Thousands of head of cattle have perished and the swamps are strewn with carcasses. The country in the flooeed district is fiat and devoid of hills, thus giving no refuge except tree tops to panic stricken negroes when the water came rushing down upon them. It will be several days before anything like a correct estimate of the damage can be obtained. TROUBLE EXPECTED. Blood*b«d Foftrcd on tbe Siweton Beier- ration. BBOWN'S VALLEY, Minn., April 16.— Apparently everything is quiet on the Sisseton reservation at present, but there is every evidence that serious trouble is brewing, though the crisis may not be reached for several dayj. Sunday night 150 men who had made filings at Watertown, passed through this village, entered the reservation and went on the northwestern part of tbe reserve, where the good lands and the new townsite are located. They stated decidedly that they meant to have land. They were among the first of those to file, and say they all filed in less than two hours, This is remarkably short time, and many of the squatters were of course unable to reach claims twenty and twenty-five miles away in that time. The authorities claim that the Situation now looks very serious, but of course it is largely a matter of conjee- ture.
