but temporary benefit. A cure cannot be ex

"I was attacked with malarial fever in the

much reduced in fiesh and my friends thought
I would die. I was induced to try Simmons

was 25, but the recount showed that there
were five less ballots than were returned
by ;he election boards, so there were only
six changes by the recount. Judge Budil
overruled the objections made by the con
testant to the counting of ballots on which
erasures and substitutions were made with
blue or indelible pencils, on the ground
that the marks were not designed or in
tended as distinguishing marks. He refers
to the cas?s of Coffey vs. EJiuund3,sS Cal.,
and Wyman vs. Lemon, 51 Cal. In decid

Sas FRAKCisco.December 30:h.— A Chron
icle Spokane Falls special says the North
ern Pacific Express Company, of this city,
was robbed of $1,800 last" night in a most
The officials of the company deny that
any robbery has occurred, but the fact that
the polics are searching fur the offender,
and that the express officials have reported
every detail of tbe robbery to the police, is a
sufficient contradiction of their statement.
The express officials have no ciue as to
who committed the crime, but suspect sev
eral of their employes.
The money was in a sealed package, and
was to be sent ;East on last night's train.
The package was with many other similar
parcels, and the aggregateamount contained
in them was more than 510,000.
The money waa put in the safe of the
A messenger always accompanies the
driver, and takes care that nothing is
stolen. Just as the wagon was about to
leave for the depot the messenger stepped
bact into the office.
This is when the robbery is supposed
to have been committed. Neither the
driver or messenger noticed anything un
usual, and the vehicle was driven rapidly
to the depot. No stop was made on the
way. The other money packages were
taken from a receptacle in the wagon, and
the loss is not known.
Tacoma (Wash.), December 30ih.—Pas
sengers who have just arrived on the
Northern Pacific tell of a brutal and un
provoked murder which took place on the
train near Dickinson, N. D. A passenger,
a rough-looking man, made himself very
offensive by his quarrelsome manner.
After the train had passed Mandan a news
boy entered the car with oranges. The
man took three of the oranges and ate two
of them before he paid any attention to the
boy's demand for the price of them. As
the boy went away the man drew a pistol,
and as the newsboy was passing through
the door tbe weapon was discharged. The
bullet struck the boy full in the neck, and
he staggered aad fell dead.
The deed was so unexpected that no one
had time to prevent it. The passengers
seized and bound the murderer. As soon
as the East bound train was met, the mur
derer and his victini were taken back to
Santa Rosa (Cal ), December 30th.—The

compliance with the provisions of the new
election law. All the votes marked with
pencils of this kind were counted as il no

Parker, wife of John Parker, this af:ernoon
attempted suicide by taking poison, but the
physicians saved her. She left her hus

Washington, December 30th —TheConi
missioner oi Indian Affairs this morning
received the following dispatch from Agent
D. F. Itoyer, dated Pine Ridge Indian
Agency, December 29th :
"On Wounded Knee creek this morning,
while the soldiers were disarming Big Foot
and his band after the surrender, a fight
took place which resulted in the killing of
a number of Indians and several soldiers,
including Captain Wallace, with a number
"Two Strike and his party, who had
camped on White Clay creek just below
Red Cloud's house, opened fire on the
agency from the hill-tons opposite the
boarding-school, wounding two soldiers.
"The police returned the fire, killing two
oi Two Strike's Indians and woundingtwo
others. Two Strike and his band have re
treated ia a northwesterly direction from
the agency. It is supposed that he is try
ing to make his way back to the Bad Lands.
Thus far the Pine Ridge Indians have
taken no active part in the war, bnt Big
Foot. Slow Bear, Kicking Bear and the
Two Strike band have been and are active
in disturbance. «.
General Schofield this afternoon received
the following telegram from General Miles,
dated Hermosa, S. D : "General Brooke
telegraphs rs follows: 'Colonel Forsythe
says sixty-two dead Indian men were
counted on th? plain where the attempt
was made to disarm Big Foot's band and
where the fight began. On other parts of
tbe ground there were eighteen more.
These do include those killed in the ra
vines, where dead warriors were seen, but
not counted. Six more were brought in
badly wounded and six others were with a
party of twenty-three men and women
which Captain Jackson had to abandon
when attacked by about 150 Brule Indians
from the agency. Thh accounts for ninety
two men killed, and leaves but a few alive
" 'The women and children broke for
the hills when the fight commenced, and
comparatively few of them were hurt and
few brought in. Thirty-nine are here, of
which number twenty-one are wounded.
" 'Had it not been for the attack by the
Brules, an accurate count would havebeen
made, but the ravines were not seaiched
afterward. I think this shows very little
apprehension from Big Foo'.e's band in
the future. A party of forty is reported as
held by scouts at the head of Mexican
cieek. These consist of all sizes, and the
cavalry from Rosebud will bring them in
if it is true.' '
BIG FOOT'S INDIANS A DESPEBATE BASS.
General Miles adds: "These Indians
under Big Foot were among the most des
perate there were. There were 33 of the re
mainder of Sitting Bull's following that
joined Big Foot on the Cheyenne river,
and 30 that broke away from Hump's fol
lowing when he took his band and Sitting
Bull's Indians to Fort Bennett, making in
all nearly 160 warriors. Before leaving
their camps on Fort Cheyenne river they
cnt np their harness and broke their wagons
and started south for the Bad Lands, evi
dently not intending to return, but to go to
war. Troops were placed between them
and the Bad Lands, and they never suc
ceeded in joining the hostiles there. All
their movements were anticipated, and
their severe loss at the hands of the Seventh
Cavalry may be a wholesome lesson to
other Sioux. '
General Schofield said the fight was a
most uafortunate occurrence, but he did
not see how it could have been avoided.
He sent a telegram to General Miles ex
pressing the opinion that he (Miles) would
be master of the situation very soon. He
also expressed thanks to the officers and
men of the Seventh Cavalry for the gal
lant conduct displayed by them. .
NEABLY TWO HUNDBED CASUALTIES.
Tke Surgeon-General has received from
Medical Director Bache, at Pine Ridge, a
report of the casualties among the troops
at yesterday's fight as follows: Captain
Wallace, twenty-five men of the Seventh
Cavslry and one Indian scout, killed;
Lieutenant Garlinglon, Beventh Cavalry,
Lieutenant Hawthorne, Second Aartillery,
and thirty-eight men, wounded. Many of

thirty wounded Indians, men, women and
The C9inmis3tonsr of Indian Affairs late
this afternoon received a telegram from
Special Agent Cooper at Pine Ridge, sav
ing that in yesterday's fight 150 Indians
were killed and thirty wounded and cap
tured. He also states that the Indians at
tacked a wagon-train this (Tuesday) morn
ing two miles north of the agency, killing
one soldier of the advance guard.
WAB OF EXTERMINATION.
Omaha, December 30th.—A dispatch to
the Oasaha Bee from its special corre
spondent regarding yesterday's battle, says
the Indians waited until the dismounted
men of X and A Troops were gathered in
a group about the tepees searching for
arms, and then suddenly, without warning,
threw down their blankets and poured in
volleys irom their rifles.
The fact that the soldiers were grouped
in a compact body is the exolanation of the
great execution done by the Indians' bullets.
It did not take the troops but a moment,
however, to recover from the surprise.
Maddened by the sight of their comrades
lying dead aud dying on the ground, the
soldiers poured in a fire with frightful
effect. Through the cloud of smoke a
buck could be seen here and there, running
away, but there were not many of them.
They were pursued and most of them soon
brought to a stop with bullets.
The wounded Indians lying on the bat
tlefield fought like fiends. They continued
shooting until killed or their ammunition
was exhausted. There were many single
handed ferocious combats between the
wounded soldiers and Indians.
After the first few minutes,|when the Gat
tling and Hotckiss guns could be used they
were turned loose on snch fugitives as were
flying down the ravines. It was a war of
extirmination with the troops. It was dif
ficult to restrain them. Tactics were al
most abandoned. About the only tactics
were to kill while it could be done. When
ever an Indian could be seen firing was
directed at him, and so it went on until not
a live buck was in sight.
Minneapolis. December 30th.—A special
from Pine Ridge about the skirmish this
morning says that the Seventh and Ninth
Cavalry weie returning from the scene of
yesterday's battle, followed at some dis
tance by a wagon-train. About four miles
from the agency, and just before daylight,
a band of Indians beaded by Two Strikes
dashed at the train with the intention of
rushing it off to the Bad Lands.
The cavalry quickly returned, however,
and a sharp running fight followed, in
which it is estimated twenty or thirty In
dians were wounded more or lees seri
ously. One soldier was killed and two
The sudden outbreak of Two Strikes fol
lowed the receipt cf the news of yester
day's fight, and there is considerable ap
prehension lest many others of the supposed
friendlies will follow their example.
General Brooke, however, is quite sure
that no more will run away. It is under
stood, also, .that the Indians who have
been out in the Bad Lands are coming in
under convoy of Colonel Henry's com
mand. This will wind up all the rebels
except Two Strikes' men.

becoming a law, because it was pretty cer-
I tain the House would not be given an op

it should pass, it would be by so small a
