H. lh, says: Reports of n light with the
Indians north of here aro momentarily
cxjiccted. A large command left hero
yesterday morning In charge of Colonel
Sumner to Intercept a baud of Indians
making for tho Hud Lauds. A scout w ho
wns sent by Cnrr returned yesterday after
noon. Ho reports that Sumner, liavlng
heard that Hump's band on Cherry Creek
weroprcjiarliig to joln'tbe hostlles In tho
Had IjiikI.s, also most of Illg Foot's band,
sent a party of soldiers to Intercept them
on their arrival at Hump's camp. They
w'vro repulsed, n number of shots being
tired, but no one was seriously hurt,
Thoy returned to Colonel Sumner,
who has sent two troops ot cavalry to tho
scene, No retorts from them have been
received. The report Is that there arc
about .'1,000 Indians, including women
and children, who are badly ormcd.' com
ing to Join those In the Had Lands. There
nrc about six hundred lighting men
nmnngtliem. This report Is thought to
bb'soinewhat exaggerated, us It Is believed
that there are not three hundred lighting
men among them.
Yesterday ten cowboys went down near
Hiittlc Creek draw, where there aro a large
number of hostflcs encamiK'd on the
reservation, They conceded themselves
on Hear Creek, and hint not waited long
until eight Indians rodo slowly up tho
dravviinddlsinounleiliind mr-addled. The
cowboys firmly crept upon the bluff mul
poured a volley of lead Into them, one In
dinn dropping dead. Thu others w'crc so
frightened that thoy lied for their lives,
the cowboys shooting until they were out
of range. The cowboys captured seven
linn saddles and three good Indian liouics.
YVsterdny morning Mr. McCormack
ennui In and reported that during tho
night, wlitle he was a way from his ranch,
the Indians shot it to pieces mul shot thu
wit (lows out. They cut all his grain
sacks and scattered tho grain and de
stroyed the furniture. The great liln
dtanco to (heir capture Is that after com
mitting their thefts nnd destroying their
proiicrty theyTcturn to their reserv oration
where tho troops cannot follow, there
being strict orders against It.

Hogg, and gave the expiesslon that she
alone was guilty of the murders'. Tho
