LOWELL MASS,, March 28,-ln pr?fet*
eneo to fighting tho textile union? of
Lowell, the agenta o? seven bla; cotton
mills to-day ordered an entire suspension
of work for an lndoflnlte period. Two
days, ago thoso agents officially an?
nounced that a canvass of tho holp show?
cd that upwards of 80 per cent, were non?

ond canvass was taken of the loom fin?
orn, mule ?ptnnera,? carders, nappera?
weavers and beamers this morning It waa
soen ? that the textile council was able ,
to fulfill It? threat and strike In the
mills Monday. Without delay notices of
a shut down to tako'effect at once were
posted on the gates and as the piece
hands completed their work to-day, they.
were told'to leave. <? )?'?,
When speed wont down at noon fully
17,000 operatives had been forced Into Idle?
Tho length ot the shut down Is prob?*"
lematl?al, but it is likely to last many
weeks, as the unions have 'been prom?
ised .fln'ahclal support 'from the Unite?!

can Federation of Labor ami from tho
local Trades and La'cor ? Council, com?
posed of forty-five unions. Agent W. 8,
Southworth, of Massachusetts, secretary
Of the Manufacturers' Association, says
that if tho mill peoplo think that tuo
thut down will he so for a fortnight they
?re greatly ml?tokon. They will last,
he says, until tho agent* are positively
tjjd that all the operatives want to work
-and when this times comes the agents '
will consider the matter of resumption.
President Conroy, of the Textile Coun?
cil, who stands as tho strike leader, nays:
"The action of the mill agents simpli?

Steals "Sacred Bundle."
PAWNEE; OK? March 28.?When the
Pawnee Indians were dancing near this
place several days ago, some unknown
person stole tho ".?acred bundle".belong?
ing to tho Skeedeo band of tho tribe. The
sacred bundles of the North American In?
dian tribes are tholr most precious pos?
sessions. They are believed to contain
tho very osseneo of all that Is best and
grestest In tribal Hie. Their origin Is
lost, so long have they been troasnred
and handed down to each succeeding gen?
eration. Tlie Pawnees were once the
roost powerful and warlike tribe of the
plains, and the loss ot this bundle has
caused much sorrowing among tbem.
Often tho contents of the bundles are
trivial In themselves, ? but reprisent an
epoch In tribal life,, just as a fragment of
the truo cross would bring to the minds
of Christians the' memory of Christ.
