Place as Yet.

Associated Press Dispatches.
Chicago, Nov. 20. — General Miles
this evening received a telegram from
Rushville, informing him that General
Brooke's command reached Pine Ridge
at 7a. m. Indians are coming in in
large numbers from Rosebud. There
General Miles also received a commun
ication from an officer at a camp on
Popular river, Montana, dated Novem
ber 17th, containing matter of interest
with reference to the Messiah craze.
The officer reports that all the Indians
in that vicinity are affected by the pre
vailing craze, and even the more intelli
gent half-breeds believe in it. A num
ber of young Indians recently procured
Winchester rifles, where, the officers
could not ascertain. There has been no
excitement up there yet, or any dances,
but there is a deep and universal belief
that there will be astonishing super
natural manisfetations before very long.
One of Sitting Bull's lieutenants (White
Gut), with two other Sioux, have re
cently been up there preaching the new
doctrine, denouncing schools and telling
the Indians to procure arms and am
munition, and meet other Indians in the
Black Hills country next spring.
They were ordered oil' the reservation,
and went to the woody mountains north
of the British line, to proselyte the rem
nants of the Ogallalas andUncapapas.
One of the loyal Indians told this officer
that in case the Sioux should open hos
tilities many young warriors from that
vicinity would likely go and join them.
The Ogallalas and Uncapapas north of
the British line are a bad lot, some of
whom were in the Custer affair, and
some of the older ones were concerned
in the Minnesota massacre of 1862. The
Gros Ventres Indians at Fort Belknap
reservation are in a very turbulent
liaised from the Dead.
Ab an instance of the stories floating
around, tlie officer tells of one current
on the reservation, to the effect that
several young warriors started from
there to visit Sitting Bull and learn
about the new Messiah. One of the
party, Yellowhawk, Haid he had been
commanded in a dream to kill himself
as a test of faith, with the promise that
he should be raised from the dead. He
committed suicide accordingly, and the
party went on without him. When
they reached Standing Rock, they found
Yellowhawk there alive and well, hav
ing been resurrected and taken to
Standing Rock ahead of his companions.
This is the story sent back by the f trav
General Miles expressed great satis
faction this evening that General
Brooke's troops reached the agency this
morning befoie the Indians had inau
gurated hostilities, and the further fact
that the latter are not committing any
violence. "Now," said he, "they have
to attack us in our own position, or else
break away from the reservation. The
danger is now that the turbulent bucks
may leave the reservation. The ap
pearance of General Brooke"s command,
however, will have tlie effect of sustain
ing the authority of the government,
and give protection to the loyal element
among the Indians."
Buffalo Bill stiiiVs a Reporter.
Buffalo Bill, who is in the city, told an
Associated Tress representative that
General Miles has received information
that a fight occurred this afternoon be
tween General Brooke's troops and In
dians, between Rushville and Pine
Ridge. No particulars have been re
ceived, and the casualties are unknown.
He expressed the opinion that General
Miles would, "if let alone by the govern
ment," have settled the trouble expe
General Miles could not be seen to
night, either at his headquarters or
hotel. It was stated that he had gone
out in company with Colonel Corbin, his
assistant adjutant general.
Later —General Miles was seen at mid
night, and assured a reporter that he
knew nothing whatever about a battle
1 he Crazy Red Skins.
Kansas City, Nov. 20.—A dispatch
from Pino Ridge from James N. Finley,
formerly of this city, now a post trader
at Pine Ridge agency, was received here
tonight. The dispatch mentions the ar
rival of the troops and. continues as fol
lows: "The Indians are actually crazy
with religious fanaticism, and" excite
ment at the ghost dances is of a most
intense character. Add to their excite
ment their utter recklessness of conse
quences induced by blind fanaticism,and
you may gain some idea of the situation.
It is the general opinion among the
troops that they will be ordered In a day
or two to stop the Indians' ghost dances,
then trouble will undoubtedly follow.
Two or three of these dances are now in
progress. A herder who has just reached
here, reports that several hundred In
dians have congregated secretly nine
miles from this place. They are all
heavily armed, and expecting the Rose
bub Sioux to join them shortly.
Continued Ghost Dances.
Pierre, S. D., Nov. 20.—Captain Nor
vil, special Indian agent stationed here,
returned today from a trip up Red
river, where he had gone on receipt of a
report that the Indians, on account of
the Messiah dance, were failing to at
tend the distribution of rations, and
were killing cattle. He reports that he
found the Indians much excited, and
keeping up their famous ghost dances
with a zest and perseverance that ia
alarming. He found Hump Rod, with
about 300 braves of the Two Kettle band,
all painted up and acting in a very sus
picious manner. Cowboys who arrived
here tonight stated that the Indians
killed a number of cattle, and are act
ing in a strange manner, and the famous
Indian, Stepa-the-Cripple, had told
them thay had better keep on their
guard. Some of the chiefs told Norvil
that several of the hostiles had urged
them to go and join in the ghost dances,
making threats if they did not enough
force would be sent against them to kill
them all. They claim to stand in great
fear of the hostiles.
All Quiet at Rosebud.
Fort Niobrara, Neb., via Valentine,
Nov. 20.—The troops front Niobrara
reached Rosebud agency early this morn
ing, and found all quiet and peaceful.
The Messiah craze has not been as prev
alent at the Rosebud agency, and most
of those affected by it left several days
ago for Pine Ridge to participate in the
ghost dances. The presence of large
numbers of Indians with a dozen wagons
yesterday in Valentine, for the purpose
of freighting agency goods to Rosebud,
when they knew the troops were march
ing to the agency, was assuring to the
people that little trouble was to be ap
prehended. It is also considered a good
evidence that there will be no trouble at
Pine Riuge, where, it is thought, most
of the present row was caused by the new
and inexperienced agent.
More Troops to March.
Omaha, Neb., Nov. 20.—Orders have
been received at Fort Omaha to have the
four remaining companies of the Second
infantry ready to go to the front at a
moment's notice. The companies im
mediately began to pack up, and inside
of two hours everything necessary in a
winter campaign was ready and has
been placed on board the cars. These
companies, as far at least as the com
manders are concerned, comprise some
of tlie oldest Indian fighters in this sec
tion of the country.
General Brooke and his battalion
reached Pine Ridge agenev early this
morning. Two troops of cavalry that
have been patrolling the north confines
of the reservation all summer will join
the command tomorrow. The Pine
Ridge Indians are greatly excited, and
continue danciDg. General Brooke is
informed that bands of Indians are en
route from Rosebud agency to join those
at Pine Ridge.
BEAT HIS RECORD.
STAMBOUL REDUCES HIS RECORD
TO 2:11 1-4.
The Great Stallion Surprises Some of the
Devotees of the Turf—Betting Was
Against Him, fj to 1.
Stockton, Nov. 20.—Staniboul trotted
against his record today on tlie fastest
track in the state, and made a mile with
out a skip in 2.11 , beating the stal
lion's record made at Napa by one-quar
ter of a second. Several watches, includ
ing Goldsmith's, made the time 2:10%,
but the three official agreed
on 2:ll'a'. Stamboul came on the track
at 2 o'clock, and seemed to be in his
best form. Johnny Goldsmith, the
driver, was confident of lowering his
record, but the spectators bet against
him. Pools sold sto 1 against breaking
the record. Harry Whiting was se
lected as a guide and runner, and
after a little scoring, Staniboul got
away ori a good start. The first quarter
was made in 32 seconds, and a fast gait
carried the horse to the half in 1:03>2 ;
turning into the home stretch the great
trotter seemed to slacken up, until he
led out on the finish and came home
with the driver's whip swishing in the
air, and not touching the horse, going
under the wire in 2:liy. When the
time was announced, the spectators
cheered for the horse and the driver.
Stamboul will trot here again on Sat
urday to beat his time made today.

The Concord's Trial Trip.
New York, Nov. 20.—The cruiser Con
cord on her trial trip made eighteen
knots per hour, against a strong tidal
current. She proved to be the fastest
gun boat yet built for the navy, but
despite her splendid speed, the Concord
failed to develop the requisite34oo-horse
power. The failure is due directly to
trouble in the second hour oi the test,
with the after feed pump, and the leak
ing of the after boiler. Before the trial
ended there were from two to three
inches of water on the floor of the fire
room. A rupture had occurred in the
nipple of the side pipe leading to the
after air pump. It is notable that not
withstanding this trouble, she developed
nearly 3200-horse power. The test will
probably not be accepted as official.
Gas and Hot Water.
Sonoma, Cal., Nov. 20.—A natural gas
and a hot water well has been discov
ered two miles north of this city. The
flow of gas measures 9000 feet every
twenty-four hours. The well has now
been bored to a depth of thirty-six feet,
and the water is 110 degrees.

Much Speculation About the Murder of
PARIS, Nov. 20. —At the request of the
Russian embassy no autopsy will be
held on the body of General Seliver
skotf. The government is acting ener
getically against the nihilists in Paris.
Le Matin says the police believe the
killing was an act of private vengeance.
Podlesky, the alleged murderer, was the
lover of a girl who had been enticed by
a woman, at the instance of SeliverskofT,
into a bouse of ill-fame. This, it is
claimed, was the motive for the crime.
A Mason existed between the woman

Irish people, he will remain at the helm

Irish people, not English politicians,

Commissioner St. Clair opened up the
serious question of the relative jurisdic

local directory. He offered a resolution
accusing the "directory of delay in pre

properly the director-general. The reso
lution asked the chairmen of the. stand

tion. A discussion arose over the pre
amble which criticised the action of the
local directorate. It was pointed out in
the discussion that an appeal as to the
clash between the two bodies could only
be taken to congress, which would mean
fatal delay to the fair. A number of
amendments were offered to the resolu
tion, and finally the whole matter of
jurisdiction was referred to a committee
of six—St. Clair, De Young, Lindsay,
Massey, Walker and Martindale. The
committee will report a plan of pro
