occurreriro or the general tutject, beyond
many rcmonitrnncci and communications
of this government, which already form a
part of the hiitory of Indian outrages
along tho Southwest borders, but gentle
men wbo pass judgment upon the subject,
ana haro mado it a matter of official com
munlcatlon, my unhesitatingly that tbe
tltno has now arrived when the neonle

Sa.v Fhancisco, May 23. A dispatch
ceived at Yreka, from Fairchild s
ranche, May 'Jl, 1 p. in.', itys Gen. Davis
as returned from KUmnth reservation
nd says thore Is no disposition on the
part of the Indians in that locality to
join tbo Modoci. A few young men of
Hoodstum reservation might havo been
induced to enlist under Jack, bad he mot
1th continued tuccots, but his defeat bus
ampencd their ardor. No trouble is now
nticipated unless the Modocs should slip
li to tbo Yeanox agency and incite young
bucks to mischief. Tho latest order locates
uadquarters at Van Ilrcmen's whither
tbo infantry went yesterday. Gen. Davis
remains hero for the present.
rOUKTH DISrATCH.
Faikciulu Ranche, May 21. Artena
Chokes and Uno-Eyod Dixie returned n
dusk this ovenlng from tho direction of
Dorris' Ranche. Fairchild who has
clovorly englnoerod this consultation busi
ness judged tho Modocs must bo at loast
15 tulles away. Doth woman say in sub
stances that thoy had travollod a long
distanco. The women woro takon to
Davis' tent In tho presconco of Gon.
Hardio, Col. Gillcm and Capt. lias-
ruck, nnd Fairchild intorproling.
Those womon talkod n long while;
they said little; tin ally Artona said the
ndians woro fifteen miles from here and
numbered llfloen warrior and fllty squaws
and children. Tho Groat Spirit bud caused
their hearts to bleed for tbe white people ;
all wanted to roturn to the fold and live
at poaco among tho whites, but the present
condition of allairs, duo rogard for their
livos prevented tbum from appearing
within reach of tho army, and thoy
wanted poaco and talk; let tho great
whlto chief (meaning Geu. Davis)
como out nod soo them nlono, and
talk over matters, thai parties might come
to an amicable understanding. No Mudco
would surrender without a peaco talk,
and Dixie corroborotol tho state
ment of Artenu. Tho tntorviow
lasted one and tbroo-nuartors hours. At
1110 Cloio Uon. IUvls told Artona and
Dixie to go to tho Modoc camp to-morrow
morning and toll tho Indians be
should uot-couio out for a peuco talk, Ho
did not buliovo in poaco talks uway from
ins men. i nu imjians mint comn to him
if thoy wanted to talk, and ho would allow
them to surrender, and thoy had until
Friday lu appear at headquarters. After
thon ho should shoot ovory Modoc found
with a gun. Thu women told Fairchild
thoy wouid not return to tbo Modoo camp
That que.tlon will bo determined in tho
morning.

p)seci he Is In Hot River mountains
Gen. 3IIem has boon superseded. Gen
McCoy says Ron, Davis was very bluff
with the Indians, and gavo thorn to un
dorst&nd If they attempted to escape they
would bo shot by tho guard. Another

Kenzio's loss was thrco men wounded,

Territory.
THE VA.VKTOS'a OS THE WAR PATH.
A dispatch received at tho war depart
ment frcm Gen. Custar, dalod at rort
Randall, Dakota territory, May 1S, con
tains tho following : "A guido sent to me
from Fort lUnaall reports positively that
200 warriors and young inon belonging to
ibe Yankton agency loft tbeir reservation
few days ago to join the hostile tribes ot
Upper Missouri, and that tho Indians will
number f,0C0 warriors in tho field this
summer
THE WICHITA S AND TDE 0UE.
Sr. Loui., Mty 23. A special to the
Times from Fort Sill, Indian territry
sajs that great excitement prevails among
tbe Wichita Indians on account of thu
murder ot thoir principle chief, lsadawh
by the Oiages recently. Tbo ch.of wus
out hunting alone, and tbo next morning
hit headle's body was found with a bole
in thu back. A hundred yards away the
heal was found tlrippel uf the scalp
lt&Uwab rn a grcnl friend of lb
tb whites. Seventeen years ago one of
his warriors killed a sentry at Fort Ar-
buckle, and the chief promptly brought
trie bead ot tbe ustastln to the fort. It is
Lellered that tho Wicbiias and their
allies will Immediately Uku tho wr
pith against tbe Oiages, in spite of all
Ifurts to restrain them.

DOES ESQUIMAUX JOE LIE 7
Judge Charles P. Djly, president of
tho geographical society, speaking of tho
death of Capt. Hall of tho Polaris Arctic
oxpodition, says tho lotter writor who
started tho poisoning story on tho ex
pression of a suspicion by an Esquimaux,
would not havo dono so had ho known
tho breed. Thoy don't know what (ruth
means. Joo is spoken of as a well
meaning man, but Hans is
a man of very bad roputalion,
and was noar boing hanged by Dr. Hayes
on one of his expedition, so convincing
was tho proof that he had boon tho cause
of tho doath of Mr. Sontog. Judgo Daly
is not Inclined to accept as truth tho
stories told of Capt. Iluddington, by those
rescued, and alludes to circumstances to
show that T)6on was the man alluded to as
showing insubordination to Capt. Hall.
He says Capt. Hall wm not leading such
an expedition. Ho was not a seaman, and
any attempt to induco blm to loavo tho
cmniand to Liout. Urlnnol, a son of his
bonefuctor, failed. Mr. Grinnol, when
spoken to on tho subject, said Capt. Hall
lacked only ono requirement for the task
he undertook tbo ability to govorn men.

Up to this tlrr.o thero are reported four
persons wero killed, and eight slightly

THE TOIl.VADO.
Wamhsqton, Iowa, May 23. A tir-
Idctornudo or whirl wind, accompanied
by hail and rain, passed over this county
oout six miles norm Ol this place, yester-
ay afternoon. It camo un from thu
Sotbwest and pasted out of the county a
iiuu soutu ui imiou. mo lornauo was
all a milo In width, and tore Into frai:-
muntt everything that lay in Its course.
Houses, barns, fences, cattle, horses and
numan beings were caugbt and whirled
T ll Hot a u THE AIK
Liko mere tovs, and thon dashed to the
round with such violence as to produce
nstant death to animate beings. Houses
nd barncs were torn to fragments and
cattered for miles around The fields

driven
INTO THE OROUND
At an angle of 09 degrees, and cattle were
dually driven bead foremost into the
round l ou can scarcely conceive the
ovastatlon or forco of the tornado, Al
ready we have heard of thirteen farm
oues hnd many barns that wero literal.
torn to pieces, and many others badl
lamaged. A school was in session
at
A fCUOOL-norsK
Ix miles north, and the tornado toro th.

Mrs. McCoy was serioufly hurt. A gen
itemm who was near thu tornado, six
miles north, when it passed, reports thai
it was of a balloon shape n.th tbe small
end to tho ground, and moved at the rate
of about 20 miles an hour. It commenced
Its
FEARFUL WORK
Near Kenta, where it demolished several
residences. V next heard of it abou'
C miles northwest, where it destroyed two
or three houses, arid as it pas-ed on north
east it scattored to tho four winds tho line
rofidences and the barns of Alex Gibson.

Many persons' lives were saved by hastily
getting into tbeir collars. Sad havoc was
made with all kinds of stock, From an

ECAI'ED ALIVE.
He said ha could see largo piocos of

as though shot from a cannon. Hail fell
that measured 'J inches In diameter. $omo
wero brought to ths city, and four hours
after thoy wero pithed up thoy
woro large as hens' egg.
THE I10ARINO
Of tho tornado was fearfnl, nnd could havo
been heard easily ten miles. At tills
placo, C milos away, it was perfectly up.
palling, surpassing in torror any thing
evor heard except tho roar and din of a
terrific battlo. A telegram from Meata
lust ovouing says that
FIVE TKIlSONS WERE KILLED
About throo miles from that pUco, Ono
child was torn to pieces, and reports aro
from only a few points along the lino of
tho torrible destroyer,, so that wo cannot
estimate the amount ol damages, but it
must bo thousands of dollurs. Many
more lives, probably, woro lost than those
ropurtcd, and
NO ESTIMATE
