Associated Press Dispatches.
Minneapolis, Doc. 20. —A Tribune
special from Pierre, 8. D., says: A
ranchman from up Bad river reports
that the hitherto peaceable, semi-civil
ized tribe of the Two Kettle Sioux have
begun a wild ghost dance. Night be
fore last some of the bucks, when re
turning home, claimed to have seen a
white figure on top of a bluff. One of
them said it was Sitting Bull. The al
leged phantom motioned them to fol
low, and glided from hill to hill in the
diicction of the Bad Lands. The ranch
man says the Indians accepted this as
proof that Sitting Bull is tho Messiah,
and that he was beckoning them to join
his followers. The ghost dance is in con
sequence of this, and the ranchman says
the Indians as far down as Willow creek
are affected. If the story is correct, it
is a serious affair.

No Indians, except the band mentioned,
are now going to the hostiles, and the
cordon is constantly tightening. Gen

large band of Indians in the vicinity of
Camp Crook, on the Little Missouri.
No further engagements are reported
from the lower ranches. The govern

Senator Reagan today offered an
amendment to the financial bill agreed
upon yesterday by the finance commit

THE WORLD'S FAIR.
The President's Proclamation Will He
Heady for Issuance Soon.
Washington, Dec. 20. —It is learned
on the highest authority that there is no
truth in the report that the president,
before he issues the Columbian world's
fair proclamation, will require $3,000,01)0
of the $5,000,000 subscription to be paid
in cash to Treasurer Seeberger. It is
learned also from the same source that
the proclamation will be ready for issu
ance very soon, probably next week, and
Secretary Butterworth and Director
Peck's visit to the white house was for
the purpose of laying before the presi
dent additional papers bearing upon the
validity of the subscriptions to tho fair.
These established the absolutely binding
character of the subscriptions, and, it is
believed, settled all remaining doubts.
The bona fide character of the subscrip
tions is attested by the fact that under
the 20 per cent, call,more than $1,000,000
was paid in, in cash, of the total amount
of $6,900,000 subscribed.

Him from His Duty.
Kilkenny, Dee. 20. —Parnell continues
to take an active part in the campaign.
Today he delivered an address from the
hotel here. He was very positive in
his assertion that slate and lime were
the substances thrown at him the other
day. He declared that he would allow
no combination, however powerful, to
drive him from his duty to Ireland. He
ridiculed McCarthy as a leader, who did
not have two ounces of steel in his
rrT ins hands to tub plow.
Parnell made another speech this
evening. In the course of his remarks
he said: "In 1875 God told me to put
my hands to the plow, and I obeyed."
lie felt certain the day of victory is at
hand, and that this is the last bitter
struggle before Ireland.
IT WAS LIME.
Pamell'a physicians have issued a for
mal statement, declaring that the sub
stance thrown into Parnell's eyes was
lime and that the danger of permanent
injury to his sight is not yet over.

He came ashore here and received a

Powderly Talks About the Proposed
I'uioit of Organization*!.
Philadelphia, Dec. 20.—Powderly re
turned from Florida today. He said he
was not at liberty to speak of the rela
tions existing between the Knights and
Alliance. The organizations would
probably act in accord with each other.
The words "independent political ac
tion," if rightly understood, would set
tle the question in the minds of the
people that they mean simply that
in joining forces they form a
platform upon which, as organizations,
they stand. There is no necessity
to form a new political party, but a po
litical movement having a definite ob
ject in view. It is upon *hat basis lie
proposes to issue a call to all labor lead
ers who herald reforms,single tax men,
in fact anybody who desires the success
of the labor movement, to meet in con
vention. The object is to discuss the
labor problem in all its aspects, and at
tempt to make a platform which shall
satisfy all to such an extent that they
will work for it.

Koch's Remedy Still the Cur

A Crisis Threatened in German Po-
Court Gossip—Emperor V/illiam Not in

Associated Press Dispatches.
Berlin, Dec. 20.—[Copyright, 1890, by
the New York Associated Press.] The
number of American physicians who have
been waiting here trying to get lymph,
is rapidly diminishing. Prof. Gerhardt
has now treated seventy-nine patients.
Four suffering from advanced phthisic
died ; three left the hospital much im
proved, and twenty-four are progressing
favorably. Gerhardt expresses satis
faction witli the remedy, and confirms
Koch's experience that it is the most
useful in the initial stage of tiie disease.
Dr. Guttrnan has four cases tbat have
been absolutely cured, of pulmonary
phthisic, having been taken at an early
■stage. Prof. Leyden reports, of 127 pa
tients treated at the charity hospital,
the general results are promising, and
there has been no mishap in any in
stance. In contrast to this the Cologne
Gazette records the death of a patient
confided to the care of Dr. Libbertz, by
Koch, and who received his tirst injec
tion from Koch. Prof. Leyden admon
ishes the doctors to use the" utmost cau
tion, in that the injections affect the
heart strongly. All deaths following an
injection have been caused by the heart
KOCII CALLS OX riIKLPS.
Prof. Koch paid a long visit to the
American Minister, Phelps, yesterday.
Koch said his decision to henceforth
give lymph only to hospitals, was due to
the reports of fatal results that followed
its use in private practice. He carefully
added that he was not personally cog
nizant of any death resulting from its
effects, but was convinced that the
lymph was dangerous, except when
used under constant watch by physi
cians. The patient, he said, ought to
be seen at least every two hours. He
declares that it is useless for American
doctors to come to Berlin. Lymph will
be assigned to American hospitals that
are properly vouched for. Sick Ameri
cans should stay at home. Berlin is al
ready too full of patients.
A POLITICAL CRISIS.
The dispute over the government's
commune bill threatens a serious crisis.
The minister of the interior, Herr
Forth, finding the majority of the com
mittee bent on amendments preserving
several feudal privileges which the bill
aimed to abolish, conferred with his
colleagues, who authorized him to in
form the committee that if the landtag
supported the amendments, it would be
immediately dissolved. A sharp dispute
followed, the conservative members
of the committee declaring that
the government was taking a line
ruinous to the aristocracy, which they
held w as the backbone of the monarchy.
The committee adjourned until Jan
uary Ist, and several of the members
will consult Bismarck on the crisis, and
ask him to appear and lead the opposi
tion. The Post (Conservative) warns
its party that dissolution on such a
question would result in a Liberal ma
jority. The Progressists rejoice at the
prospects of dissolution, but it is not
thought that the Conservatives will
risk a general election.

The question of_ the suppression of
Cardinal Lavigerie's salary,on the ground
that he had occupied himself with
politics, was discussed today by
the senate. The minister of justice de
fended the cardinal, and his remarks
showed a strong desire for the estab
lishment of an entente with the Vati
can. The debate was purposely raised
to ascertain the state of feeling on the
next election of a pope, which appears
an early probability. The whole influ
ence oi France will be directed to the
selection of a cardinal favorable to the
republic. The most satisfactory candi
dates are: Lavigerie, Zigliara, Raf
faele, Monaco, Lavoletta and Gibbons,
of America. Gibbons' impartial treat

the favorite candidate of Lavigerie.

THE EXTREME PENALTY.
His Accomplice, Mile. Bompard, Let Off
with Twenty Years Imprisonment at
Hard Labor—Last Day of the Trial.
lamb, Dec. 20.—1n the Eyraud trial
today, the public prosecutor denounced
the theories of the hypnotizers, and urged
that experiments showed that a person
who was hypnotized retained sufficient
will power to resist the operator's skill.
The theories of the Nancy school were
nothing less than the old story of the
"evil eye," and were on a par with for
tuWteHing with cards. Regarding
MUr. Bompard, the public prosecutor
said the woman's intellect was not
weak, but depraved. Both prisoners
were eoually guilty. The evidence
showed that everything had been pre
pared for the hanging of Gouffe, and it
was idle to assert the contrary. He de
manded the extreme sentence of the
law upon Eyraud. In the case of Mile.
Bompard, the jury must consider her
age. defective education and her condi
tion of life, and decide whether there
were extenuating circumstances.
M. Decori spoke in behalf of Eyraud
who, he contended, was a mere puppet
under the evil influence ot Mile. Bom
pard. He read a letter written by her
to her first lover, to show her character.
During the reading, Gabrielle burst into
a fit of weeping, and restoratives had to
be applied. Decori insisted that she,
and not Eyraud, conceived the crime.
The original intention of both was not
to murder Gouffe, but to,extort money
M. Robert spoke in behalf of Mile.
Bompard, maintaining that Eyraud had
enticed her to participation in the crime.
He said that the story of the crime, as
recited by her to Dr. Voison while she
was under hypnotic influence, was that
it had been agreed that she was to throw
her girdle about Gouffe's neck, but just
as she was about to do so she was seized
with a nervous attack which rendered
her helpless, and Eyraud, seeing her
unable to perform her part, rushed upon
the victim and strangled him to death.
The jury was out one hour and fifty
minutes. Eyraud was convicted and
condemned to death. Gabrielle Bom
pard was also convicted and sentenced
to twenty years' imprisonment at hard
Gabrielle, upon hearing her sentence,
appeared utterly overcome and fell back
into the arms of her doctor. Eyraud
showed no emotion, but while being
conducted to his cell he incessantly

Eyraud refused to taste his dinner.
He expressed the hope that he would be
granted a reprieve. Mile. Bompard is
also hopeful that her sentence will be
