Assooiatcd Press Dispatches.
Omaha, Neb., Nov. 22. —A special
from the correspondent of the Bee at
Pine Ridge agency, received at a late
hour tonight, contains the most startling
news yet received of the Indian trouble.
It is to the effect that William McGau,
formerly a government scout, and now a
rancher, arrived at the agency this
evening with a story of a plot to massa
cre the soldiers under General Brooke.
He enjoys a wide friendship among the
Indians, and a few nights ago stopped
at their camp. When supposed
to be asleep he was really
awake and listening to the plan out
lined by the bucks. The place where
they hold the ghost dance is a narrow
valley, on two sides of which are dense
clumps of trees. The Indians planned
to keep up the dance until the soldiers
interfered. Then the devilish plot will
be put into execution. The dance will
be kept up in the middle of a natural
amphitheater, and when the soldiers
defile down the valley between the trees
the hundreds of Indians who
will be concealed therein will
mow them down with their rifles.
McGau says they talked the matter
over in tbe most calculating manner,
figuring just bow they will dispose of
the braves so as to insure the killing of
every soldier. McGau, as soon as he
could get away, hastened to the agency
to inform General Brooke of the awful
fate projected for him. This story has
removed from the minds of the officers
the last doubt of the bloodthirsty spirit
that has taken possession of the In
THE GOVERNMENT NEWS.
Official Reports From the Scene of
Washington, Nov. 22. —The war de
partment has authorized the number of
Indian scouts in the division of Dakota
to be increased by five hundred men.
They will be selected from the Indian
police and other disciplined Indians.
Major General Schofield this afternoon
said every hour passed without an out
break, brightened the prospects for a
peaceful settlement of the pending dis
turbance. Secretaries Proctor and No
ble were in consultation this afternoon
with the president, who manifested
much interest in the subject, and de
cided that two regiments of cavalry
should be sent to Pine Ridge from Ari
zona and New Mexico. Dispatches
from General Miles state that the separ
ation of the friendly and turbulent In
dians is proceeding rapidly at Pine
Ridge. General Brooke anticipates no
immediate trouble, and thinks separa
tion will make easier the task of re
straining the turbulent Indians from
overt acts. Telegrams have been re
ceived confirmatory of the reports that
the Messiah craze is rapidly extending
north, and across the Canadian line,
under the operation of Sitting Bull's
Acting Indian Commissioner Belt has
sent a circulai to all Indian agents, ex
cept the agents of the tribes in Dakota,
in regard to the ghost dance. He says:
"It is very important, in view of the ten
dency of such excitement to obtain a
general hold upon the Indians, that the
office be kept advised as to the condition
of affairs at each agency, with the view
to the adoption of all proper precaution
ary measures to prevent an outbreak of
the Indians and enforce obedience by
them to all the regulations of this de
partment. You are therefore instructed
to keep this office fully posted by letter,
or by telegraph if the emergency should

Weird Incantations Kept Up In the Vicin
ity of Pine Ridge.
Omaha, Neb.', Nov. 22. —A special to
the Bee from the Pine Ridge agency
says: Two of the most reliable scouts in
the government employ report to Gen
eral Brooke that last night 160 lodges of
the vvounded Kneo fanatics, including
gome of the most desperate and treach
ous redskins in thia part of the country,
moved to White river, twenty miles
north of here, and again begun the ghost
dance, in a wilder manner than known
thus far. The scouts talked with sev
eral leaders, and all declare that they
would shoot any government officials or
soldiers who attempted to suppress the
dance. This ia by far the most menac
ing news that has come to General
Brooke since hia arrival. The Indiana
in these 150 lodges are armed with Win
cheaters, navy revolvers and knives,
have large quantities of ammunition
and provisions, and are receiving heavy
reinforcements hourly. Gen. Brooke re
ceived a telegram from Gen. Miles last
night, giving him power to call just as
many more troops to this point as he
Some of the acouts and Indian police
sent out Thursday to notify the non
dancing faction to move into tbe agency
precincts until the trouble was settled,
have returned. They report the friendly
Indiana willing to come in. Some have
already done so, and it is believed all
will be in by Sunday night. The dan
gerous work of bringing tlie disturbers
to time will begin Monday morning.
(ieneral Brooke has received an in
timation that the war department will
certainly insist upon the suppression of
the ghost dance at all hazards. Both
the commandant and the agent were
greatly chagrined and nettled at learn
ing last night that another lot of some
300 Rosebud warriors had put in an ap
pearance, as if they had risen out ot trie
earth, only twelve miles northwest of
here, and were preparing to establish a
ghoat seance. These all have Winches

WON'T STOP DANCING.
A .Master of the Ghost Dance Writes an
Omaha, Nov. 22.—A special to the
Bee from Pine Ridge agency says: Cen
sus enumerator Bee, who arrived this
morning from a trip through the more
distant portions of the reservation, is of
the opinion that the ghost dances will
result in trouble before many days. The
settlers on the borders of the reserva
tion, he says, are flying out. General
Brooke is non-committal, but evidently
much troubled. He thinks the crisis is
not far away. Agent Royer received a
communication from Little Wound,
high priest of the dancers, in
which the chief says he wants
to know what the soldiers are
coming for. The dance is a religious
one, said he, and we are going to keep it
up until spring. If we find the Christ
does not appear we will stop, but not in
the meantime, troops or no troops. He
announced that he would start another
dance .at Medicine Root creek tomorrow
morning. He said he had been in
formed that the soldiers would stop
their rations. He does not care, he says,
as what they get does not amount to
anything, but if such is the case he
wants to know,so his people won't have
the trouble of going to the agency. He
concluded with an emphatic reiteration
that they would not stop dancing. Dr.
Royer has not yet replied.
DRAWING IN HIS HORNS.
Sitting Bull Stops tho Ghost Dunces in
Minneapolis, Nov. 22. —A Standing
Rock agency special to the Tribune
says: Major McLaughlin's visit to Sit
ting Bull's camp had the effect of stop
ping, for a time at least, the ghoat
dances. McLaughlin received a letter
from Bull yesterday, who says he has
taken his friend's advice and stopped
the dances. Bull's child is very sick, or
he would come to the agency today to
draw rations. It is reported here today
that Bull's followers are growing less,
because the Messiah has not appeared,
and that discourages the chief. The
agent thinks the re is no probability of
trouble here at present, and may not be
this winter or spring. He is "working
hard on the Indians with a score of able
assistants, and makes a strong argument
against the craze. The people en the
east side of the river are fleeing for their
lives, with no one in pursuit. The ex
citement is all unwarranted. The report
of a massacre forty miles south is be
lieved to be unfounded.
The Alarm General All Along the East
Side of tho Missouri.
Minneapolis, Nov. 22.—The Tribune's
Aberdeen, S. I)., special says: Reports
indicate that the Indian scare is general
all along the east side of the Missouri
river, north of Pierre to Mandan. The
settlers are becoming very much alarm
ed and fleeing to the towns, leaving
most of their possessions behind them.
At Gettysburg there seems to be the
most excitement, and Governor Mel
lette has gone there tonight with a
large supply of arms and ammunition,
hoping to quiet the alarm. Telegrams
were received by him tonight from sev

from the commanders at Forts Yates

Depositors In a Chicago Bank Left in
Chicago, Nov. 22.—The private bank
of W. L. Prettyman, on the north side,
closed its doors this morning. Prettyman
could not be found, so no statement of
the assets and liabilities was obtainable.
Many poor people's hard-earned savings
are involved. Lyons Bros., dealers in
crockery, have $15,000 on deposit. This
is believed to be the largest single loss.
This afternoon an assignment was
made to the cashier of the bank, John
son, and at the same time he was made
the assignee of the North Division lum
ber company, in which Prettyman ia
the heaviest stockholder. Prettyman
also assigned his real and personal es
tate. The assets and liabilities of the
two conceniß, and Prettyman's estate,
will reach, it is believed, a million dol
lars. Assignee Johnson refuses to make
any statement of the assets or liabilities
of either the bank or the lumber com
pany. He said the cause of the assign
ment was the tight money market and
its bad effect on the lumber company.
This concern and the bank were closely
connected. One of the former depositors
in the bank, however, who asserts to
have a pretty good knowledge of its
ail'airs, believes the liabilities of the
bank will reach half a million, and the
assets are problematical. He said
Prettyman has been speculating heavily
this year in real estate, and putting up
houses for sale, and that the business
has not proved profitable. A large num
ber of depositors in the bank are poor

A LARGE FAILURE.
The Largest Rolling Stock Company in
the World Embarrassed.
Chicago, Nov. 22. —The United States
"Rolling Stock company haa beon placed
in the hands of a receiver; liabilities,
$3,81(3,000; assets, $6,053,000. Attorney
High, of the company, says the failure
waa precipitated by slow collections and
depression in the money market. The
company is the largest builder of rail
way cars in the world. It has plants at
Hegewisch, 111., Decatur, Ala., Annis
ton, Ala., and Urbana, Ohio. The cap
ital stock is $4,000,000. The assets con
sist of the plant at Hegewisch, worth
$2,000,000; tlie plants at the other
places mentioned, worth $1,500,000;
car trust bonds, worth $1,533,000;
rolling stock leased to various railroads,
worth $300,000; supplies and material
iv process of manufacture, $1,100,000,
and accounts amounting to $300,000.
It is understood that the failure is
due to the inability to collect $300,000
due from various roads for the rent of
cars. The property was put into the
hands of a friendly receiver, that thia
rent may be realized on.
The company employs 2200 men. Its
caah payments to employees and for ma
terial arc $600,000 monthly. Stringency
in the money market compelled the
railroads which bought cars of the com
pany to pay their bills in long time
paper, inatead of cash, and it has been
extremely difficult to discount the
paper. Judgo Blodgett, of the federal
court, appointed A. Hegewisch receiver.
Hegewisch ia the president of the com
pany. The judge ordered the receiver
to continue tlie works.
New York, Nov. 22. —Vice-President
Roys, of the United States Rolling
Stock company, made a statement to
night in conformity with that made by
the offiicials of the company in Chicago
today. He said auxiliary proceedings
will be had in all the states where the
company has property. All the cred
itors are satisfied with the arrangement
for a receiver, which is to enable the
company to tide over the critical point.
The London committee advised it, and
this feeling has been fully reciprocated
by the board of directors in New York.

A Demented Woman Jumps From a
New York, Nov. 22.—Mrs. Charles
Coombs, of Brooklyn, daughter in law
of Mr. Nelly, congressman elect of
the third district, committed suicide in
a horrible manner this afternoon. She
went to the Pierrepont hotel and asked
for a room on the top floor, saying
she was troubled with palpitation of the
heart and wanted to be away from all
excitement. The manager conducted
her to a room on the sixth floor. Soon
after she went for a bottle of wine, and
later rang for a chambermaid. When
the latter entered the room, the lady
was standing with a wine glass in her
hand. Without a word, she dashed the
wineglass to the floor, and rushed to
the window aud jumped out. She
turned over and over and struck
with terrific force on the roof of the ex
tension, bounded off and landed on a
large flower urn standing in front of the
hotel, and there rolled to the sidewalk
dead. Her mother is in a critical con
dition from the shock. The suicide had
been married seven years. She lately
suffered from ill-health, and was un
doubtedly temporarily demented.

The bestowal by Emperor William of

the greater number of whom were suf

Experts are beginning to concur in
the opinion that the cure of this disease
