EMMA ABBOTT DEAD.
The Fanioui* Opera Singer Falls Victim
to the Dread Pneomonia.
Salt Lake, January sth.—Emma Abbott, the
famous American prima donna, died in this
city this morning of acute pneumonia.
Her death was not unexpected, for she has
been dangerously ill since Friday morning last.
She was taken sick the day before, but her
powerful will kept her from giving in, and she
sang on that evening, much against the desire
ot her physician.
On the following day the man of medicine
told Miss Abbott that her life was in peril. The
lady undertook to laugh it off, however, but
finally, when she became aware that it was a
serious matter, she a: once resigned herself to
whatever fate might await her.
It is only a week ago that Emma Abbott sang
in Sacramento, and was a perfect picture of
health. More than that, she was in better
voice, and rendered the difficult role of Elvira
in "Ernani" with greater ease than ever be
fore. She was at the zeuith of her success and
fame at the time of her sudden and sid taking
away, and her death will cause thousands of
lovers of music to regret.
Emma Abbott was born in Chicago in ISSO.
Four years later her parents moved to Peoria,
111., where her father pursued his profession of
rn'is'.c teacher with indifferent success. His
little girl early learned to play the guitar and
developed vocal powers which led to her ap
pearance at a concert when she was but 9 years
old. Her success was so marked that for sev
eral years she traveled, giving concerts with
her brother George. In her sixteenth year she
officiated for a time as a district school teacher,
then resumed the concert business, joined a
Western concert troupe, was stranded at Grand
Haven, Mich., found her way to New York,
heard Parepa Rosa, then the reigning foreign
star here, and resumed concert work in the
West, but with litt'.e fiuancial success. About
this time, however, she attracted the favorable
notice of Miss Kellogg, who sent her to New
York. She was engaged as 6oprano at the
Church of the Divine Paternity, of which that
great pulpit orator, the Rev. E. H. Chapin, was
pastor. The generous congregation of this
church took great interest in her success, and
the late Mr. Lake, of the well known firm of
Lake & McC'reery, was. with Mrs. Lake, espe
cially liberal to the ambitious young artist. The
Lakes took her to their home, and with a few
other friends raised money to send her
abroad. This was in 1572. Miss Abbott
remained several years in Europe, studying
first in Milan and afterwards with Wartel in
Paris. She received good offers abroad, but re
turned to this country in ISSO and sang in the
principal cities. She had married Mr. Weth
erill, and with him formed an opera company
which has proved a genuine success. It has
always been conducted on good business prin
ciples. Desirable artists were tecured and were
paid their liberal salaries with unvarying
promptness. This fact—by no means a com
mon one iv the noble but precarious "pro
fession"—made au engagement with the Abbott
troupe highly desirable, and a singer who was
negotiating successfully with Mi>s Abbott was
always to be congnitulated. 'Ihe prima donna,
by the way. selected ber own assistants, tried
their voices and allotted their parts.
When here in Sacramento the prima donna
had not felt so well in year>, she said, and her
voice had all of its strength and purity. From
here she went to Ogden, where she opened the
new opera house. It is believed that it was in
this new structure she contracted the severe
cold which led to her sudden death.
It is estimated that Miss Abbott leaves an
estate worth in the neighbarhood of 52,000,000.
A Dn/'-ii Men Dashed to Death in the

There is no Pain Like Toothache!
It "beats the does" for making a fellow
squirm. Nobody pities you. "Get it out," says
one; "rub the tooth against a stone,'' says an
other; "when it begins to swell then it won't
hurt so much," says a third. The reason of the
ache is you didn't use bOZODONT and prevent
your teeth from decay.

to allow no discussion of the subject and in

The presiding officer (Mr. Harris) said the
point was well taken.

Several Democratic Senators objected.
Presiding officer—"The Chair wi!l entertain
no proposition that amounts to or tends to de

was taken by yeas and nays, and the motion
agreed to—yeas :U, nays 29.
Jones of Nevada, McConnell, Shoup, Stanford,
Stewart, Teller, Washburn and Woloott voted
yea with the Democrats. The announcement
of the result was received with indications of
surprise and disappointment on the Republican
side of the chamber, the elections bill haviug
been thus displaced and the financial bill taken
up The latter was read by the Clerk, aud
Stewart moved to amend it by adding his free
coinage provision. He argued in support of the
amendment which, he said, would remonetize
silver and place it back where it had been be
fore it was excluded from the miuts of the
United States and Europe.
Sherman said that the sudden and unex
pected change of scene and the introduction of
anew topic of debate should not allow the
revolutionary measure now propo-.ed as "Stew
art's amendment," to pass without the serious
and sober attention of every Senaior. The fact
that there had been an unexpected deflection
in the Republican party would not relieve the
minority of this body from its responsibility if
it supported that measure. He appealed to the
sober sense of responsibility ou the Democratic
side of the chamber against a measure which
he regarded as revolutionary and dangerous,
and the effect of which, if it should become
law would be more destructive than that of any
measure proposed for years. If the friends of
silver had only patience and would wait until
the element of time acted on the silver law of
last session, the policy of the fnited States
Government and of the French Government,
together with the use of silver in South Ameri
can States, would lilt up silver again tothe gold
standard, and that would give them gold value
for their silver.
Sherman went on to say that the Silver Act of
last session suspending the coinage of silver
dollars tended constantly to advance the price
of silver bullion, and he had no doubt that '
if speculators had not entered the aiena, and if i
the ordinary course of business had been !
allowed to deal with the mass of silver and to !
have 4,500,000 ounces of silver purchased
monthly, it would have been slowly enhanced I
until in a few years It might have reached gold, j
But speculation entered and undue advance in
price of silver had been forced by the combina- I
tion until it had gone up to 110, and then, as \
more and more silver came upon the market
suddenly the price had fallen to 100, showing
that the rise and fall had not taken place in the I
natural course of business, but as the effect of a '■
struggle between bulls and bears He svmpa- i
thized with the views of the President and of !
the Secretary of the Treasury and the general
feeling of the Republican Senators that the best
measure of relief would be the purchase of ?12,-
Oou.OOO of silver on themarket, and the first sec
tion of the bill had made provision for that.
The Finance Committee proposed to take off i
that load from the silver market and put it up
at its market price, and then let the law of last
session take its course.
Stewart replied to Mierman's argument, and
insisted that it was not a Silverman, but a "god
ring" that had tampered with the standard in
Reagan also advocate-d Btewart's amendment.
The Senate then adjourned.

An Assault from the Indians lg Momen
Omaha, January sth.—The Bee t correspond
ent at Pine Ridge telegraphs a* lollows:
"All is one long continued r-.und of excite
ment here, and au attack from the Indians is
almost momeutarily expected. As to the situ
ation here, considered in its entirety, indica
tions that the greatest battle in Indian history
is almost at hand are increasing. The reports
of every scout add new and strong support to
these indications, that were only emphasized
by the bloody affair on Wounded Knee. Gen
eral Miles believes exac'ly this, and has said so
in strong words. A small handful of Indian
employes here affirm it vehemently.
"Before the terrific clash comes they want to
try and rescue their relatives trom the enemy s
camp, aud are vow interceding with the au
thorities for permission, at the risk of their
lives, to make the atrempt. Those Indians in
the Government employ also express the hope
that they can induce many of those who were
friendly beioie the Wounded Knee battle, and
were remaining hers ac:ording to instructions,
also to come in aud be saved from the certain
annihilation that awaits them within the ranks
oi the hostiles.
"Extensive rifle-pits arc reported being dug
twelve miles west ot here by the hostiles, and
the report is of such a nature that the authori
ties may rely upon its truthlulness.
"Last night the hostiies burned many houses
belonging to the settiers along the White river,
aud finished killing the last remnant of the
great herd of Government rattle that they raid
ed so heavily about a month ago aud have been
drawing on ever since. Without desiring to
make tbe situation a particle darker thau it re
aliy is. for God knows the truth is bad enough,
everything constrains me to s«v that the
danger in which the Pine Ridge "agency and
the white populace stand at this hour and must
remain until this crisis is all over is one of the
most fearful peril that can be imagined, and I
say this, not for the moment forgetting, but
rather knowing prefectly, just wnat military
protection we have here. Since General Miles
arrived he has received most urgent admoni
tions from the administration to avoid timber
blood-hed. Further bloodshed cannot be
NOBLE ON THE SITUATION.
Washington. January 4th—Secretary Noble
was questioned to-day as to what actum had
been taken on the recommendation of General
Miles, that the Indian agents of South Dakota
agent ies be relieved from further duty and
that their places be filled by military officers.
The Secretary said he did not care to discuss
the matter further than to say the subject had
not been mentioned to him by any one with
authority to act in the matter.
It is believed, however, that should General
Miles' recommendation be submitted to him by
the President for his views the Secretary would
strongly oppose the transfer. The Secretary
spoke with some earnestness of the report that
hes been in circulation recently to the efftct
that '.he Indians were in a starving condition
and tbat the pending trouble grew out of the
fact that the Government had not kept its agree
ment with the Sioux, but on the contrary,"had
already begun to cut down rations in violation
of all treaty obligations. The Secretary de
nounced these statements as unqualifiedly false,
Ihe story of starvation among the Sioux was
a pure fabrication. For ten long years the Gov
ernment, in the fulfillment of its treaty obliga
tions, had been feeding the Sioux in Idleness.
Some of them, however, were thrifty farmers
and good citizens, but the majority were a
thriftless and indolent set, perfectly willing to
spend their time in idleness and finding fault
with the Government on every conceivable pre
The treaty of 1877, the Secretary said, obliged
the Government to furnish them with a certain
amount of food, clothing, implements, horses,
cattle, etc , until they should become s?lf-sup
porting. After ten years had elapsed, during
which time the Government spent millions of
dollars with the view rf placing the Indians on
a self-supporting basis. Members of Congress
very properly began to inquire whether it was
the purpose of the Government to continue in
definitely and forever the policy of feedteg In
dians who persisted in living in idleness.
They thoueht it about time to test their ability
to support themselves, and the appropriation
was reduced ? iiO.OOO—not a very large sum
compared with the amount usually called for.
Ther-upon Mr. Indian immedi»tely began to
complain, but made no effort toward feeding
himself. He occupied a vast territory contain
ing thousands of acres of productive land. He
was supplied with everything necessary to im
prove it and t&'.si good crops, but preferred to do
nothing and let the Government put food into
It was time, the Secretary thought, that these
people should be compelled to do something.
and he had lost patience with those who uphold
the Indians in their idleness. He sincerefv re
gretted that the recent action of the military
had resulted in bloodshed, and congratulated
himself that his Department was in no sense
responsible for it. .
COLONEL FOKSYTnE REMOVED.
Washington, January sth.—The report of the
relief of Colonel Forsythe of the command of
the Seventh Cavalry by fc'eueral Miles is con
firmed at the War Department to-day.
General Sehofield sail : "It has been sug
gested by a person whom I cannot mention
that it would be well to look into the matter of
the fight at Wounded Knee Creek theotherday,
inasmuch as the reports state that several In
dian women and children were Killed. Accord
ingly, General Miles, at a suggestion from here,
relieved Colnnel Forsythe of his command, I
pending the investigation of the circumstances i
in that fight, which investigation is probaby
now being conducted by General Miles. The '
general management of the fight is also to be j
looked iuto, but the particular point in question
is thejdeath of the women aud children."
Considerable criticism against Colonel For
syte's suspension is heard in the War Depart
ment. It seems to be directed against the policy
of relieving an officer during the progress of a
campaign, ins-cad of waiting until after the
treuble is settled. As to the charge that Col
onel Forsythe allowed his men to kill women
and children, it is stated that it would be im
possible in the hurry and confusion of an unex
pected fight and the subsequent stampede and
pursuit, to detect the sex of the Sioux.
One officer remarked: "It is preposterous to
say that it is necessary in an Indian skirmish to
stop firing long enough to find out just what
sort of an Indian you are shooting at. Women
and men look very much alike in their blanket
costumes, and tbe former are quite as fierce
fighters as the men.
"The Sioux squaw is as bad an enemy as the
buck at times. Little boys, too, can shoot quite
as well as their fathers, aud what a spectacle it
would be for a soldier, on seeing a 10-year-old
boy pointing a loaded gun at him, with as true
an aim as the best marksmen in the army, to
stop his advance and cry our, 'My son, you must
drop that gun, for you area minor, and lam
not allowed to hurt you.' "
Another officer said: "At this rate the Sioux
troubles will grow to be just as bad as the events
of the first three years of the war, when every
officer with an independent command had not
only an enemy in front ot him, but a court
martial behind him."
Still another officer said it was a grave error
to order the relief of Colonel Forsythe at this
stage of the proceedings, and thus hold up a
warning finger to every Colonel in the little
army around Pine Ridge, to tell them that the
death of each Sioux must be explained.
MORGAN 13 WILLING.
Washington, January sth.—General Morgan,
Commissioner of Indian Affairs, says he is ready

England's Proposal to Use Arbitration is
Washington, January sth.—The President to"
day transmi ted to she House further corre'
spondecce on the Eubject pt the Behring Sea
controversy between the Dotted States aud
Great Britain. The correspondence consisisuf
a ielter from Salisbury to Pauncefote, dated
August 2,1590, and one from Secretary Blame to
the same Mltisters, dated December 17th last
Salisbury's letter is confined to the discussion
of the Russian lease and treaty of 1525. He ar
gues that Blame misinterpreted Adams' posi
tion, and declares that the history of the case
shows: First—That EDgland a'.wavs denied
Russia's claim of maritime jurisdiction of the
Behring Sea; that the Convention of lb2T> was a
renunciation of that claim, and that the Beh
ring Sea has not been known by that name, but
as a part of the Pacific Ocean. He closes with a
s'aten ent that if differences still exist, his Gov
ernment is ready for an impartial arbitration
by methods to bo agreed upon in concert with
Blame's letter begins with an insistance upon
the correctness of the position assumed by the
United States. He believes the controversy tutus
upon one point—whether the phrase "Pacific
oceau," used in the treaties ot 1824-25, included
tbe Behring sea, as contended by Great Britain.
If the United States can prove the contrary, her
case is complete and undeniable. Therefore,
Blame enter into an exhaustive argument,
based on Bancrolt's history and maps, to snon
that Adams and his couteinporarits had a dis
tinct un'erstanding that the phrase "Pacific
ocean" excluded the waters of Behring sea,
then known to all the word as the Sea of Kam
The Secretary points to the large wealth of
the Russian American Company, which he says
would have been carelessly thrown away by the
Russian nobility in tbe phrase which merged
the Behring sea in the Pacific ocean. He cites
the long years of abstinence from the seal waters
by adventurous people of the United States and
Great Britain as a presumption of the lack of
right to enter. As a stronger evidence of his
correctness. Blame cites the protocols Of the
treaty of 1624 to show Russia's re inquishment
of jurisdiction applied only to territory between
the fiftieth and sixtieth degrees: also, an ex
planatory note from Russia to Adams;:, ISM,
positively excepting the Aleutian islandi and
countiy rortu of '-19° 3' from the concessions to
the United States of the right to fish and trade.
He also cites the action of Great Britain ex
cluding vessels from waters within eight
leagues of St Helena, when Napoleon was con
fined there, and again refers to the protection
exercised over the Ctylon pearl fisheries by
Great Britain, saying that he is willing to accept
those provisions for the protection of the seal
fisheries. He speaks of the enormous injury in
flicted by vessels under the British flag upon
the United States fisheries, and suggests that
she send an intelligent commission to the seal
islands. Again, he objects to the form proposed
ol arbitration, and says it will amount to some
thing tangible if Britain consents to arbi
trate the real qnestious discussed for the last
four years, viz.: What were the rights exercised
by Russia in Behring Sea ? How far were they
conceded by Great Britain? Was Behring Sea
included in the Pacific Ocean. Did not the
United States acquire all Russia's rights? What
are the present rights of the United States, and
if the concurrence of Great Britain was found
necessary, then what shall be the protected
lim:t3 and the loose season .' Secretary Blame,
in conclusion, denies thu United States ever
claimed the Behring Sea to be a closed sea, and
quotes Minister Phelps, In ISSS, where he says
the question is not applicable to the present
