Description: Indian Troubles.

Date: March 1 1874

Newspaper published in: Cairo, Illinois

Omaha, Neb., February 28.

An official telegram received here today from Fort Laramie says the condition of Indian affairs are unsettled and unsatisfactory at the agencies. The good Indians seem to have been corrupted, and are leaving for the north to join hostile bands. It is reported that the beef contractors have stopped the supply of beef, being afraid to drive the cattle through the reservation. There seems to be no doubt that the column of troops now at Ft. Laramie, will enter the reservation from that point, and it is thought they will meet with some opposition.

No trouble is at all probable south of the Platte in Wyoming Territory. Nebraska is too far removed to be thought of in connection with the Indians. There is not one in the state but what is peaceable.
