The obstinacy of the porte under the circumstances is not generally understood.

CONSTANTINOPLE, October 13.—It is stated on good authority that the number of killed, wounded and missing Armenians, as the result of the recent riots, is over 700.

This assurance did not have the effect desired by the speaker, as the Indian police questioned his right to- interfere, Some warm words passed and Meyers ended the quarrel 1 by lay«- ing his hand on his revolver and threatening to kill the first Indian who meddled with a settler, Just what will occur next can only be guessed at, but it is altogether probable thatCapt. Beck- will proceed to carry out his instructions from Washihgton without further delay. All whites on the reservation who hold the Flourney leases were greatly worried over the turn the situation has taken. They now fear the3' are to be turned out of house and home at the beginning of winter, losing their.crops and all. It will leave many of them in destitute circumstances. NORTH ATLANTIC SQUADRON; Important Plans Announced for the Winter.. WASHINGTON, October 13.—The winter plans of the North Atlantic Squadron are important and very significant in ; view of the situation in Cuba and the attitude this country has assumed toward British encroachment in Venezuela. The North Atlantic Squadron is to be greatly strengthened. Trans- - fers will be made so as to assemble in that squadron about all the best ves- vessels in the navy, and instead of, ceasing squadron drill for the winter it will continue in southern waters. An impressive demonstration of force will thus be made, but will be under the guise of practice drills. The excuse for adding vessels to the squadron and going into these waters will be that it is desirable that every one of the new vessels have practice in squad- ron.drill,and : it is necessary to continue the practice during the winter. These evolutions without question are to be carried on for the .purpose of having a- powerful fleet in; the vicinity of trouble ' if it occurs, and should occasion arise, as it is feared it may, for something; more than display in the Venezuelan and Cuban matters. The powerful fleet will be within an hour's com muni- ' cation of Washington and at the same time within twenty-four hour's sailing distance of the probable seat of trouble. It is also said the secretary contemplates holding the South Pacific Squadron in the vicinity of Valparaiso, where, in case of need, it could be- readily communicated with by cable.
