Bpeclnl to the Globe.
St. Hii.aiiik, Minn., Jan. 24.— The
settlers living on the bonier of the Ked
Lake Ind inn reservation have been
greatly excited for the last day or two
on Recount of the dancing of the In
dians. Kuniors have been flying thick
and fast, and the whole country is ex
cited. Sevt-ral clays ago the citizens of
Thief River Fulls wrote the governor
that tin -re was liable to be dancer, and
yesterday J. L. Wickstrom, a Norwe
gian fanner living on the border of the
reservation, telegraphed the governor
that the settlers were in danger. For
the past two days fanners and their
families have been moving into town,
and all are greatly frightened. They
claim that for the last three or four
nights the Indians have been dancing
all nitht, and they have heard the beat
in? of their drums and the yells of
the savages during the greater part of
tlie mehl. They also claim that the In
dians have boasted that b-rore 6pring
every house in that vicinity would be
burned and every settler driven away
or killed. To-day at noon
Aujt. Gen. Mullen
and Col. Chantler, of St. Paul, arrived
to look the situation over. Gen. Mullen
immediately telegraphed for 100 rifles
and 2,ihjO rounds of ammunition. Re
ports here have varied greatly, some
claiming that a band of Sioux from Da
kot;i were on the reservation, and were
initiating the Chlppewas into the mys
teries of the ghost dance. Also that a
larire band of Canadian Indians and a
large number of the Cross Lakers, of
lied Lake were on hand, and were in
duliriiiir in a genuine ghost dance.
Your correspondent was at Thief River
Falls to-day, and found that these
rumors are all false. I interviewed
Casper Falk, an old Indian trader, a
man who knows every Indian on the
reservation, and he is of the opinion
that there is no danger whatever.
He says that he lias not heard of any
Sioux Indians or Canadian Indians be
ing on the reservation, and also stated
that there were very few Indians in
dulging in the dances. lie is sure that
they mean no harm and are only having
a good time. I also had an interview
with Chief Moosedung, the chief of the
Indians of this part of the reservation.
He said that there were
No Sioux Indians
or Canadian Indians arrong his band,
and that there was not to exceed sev
enty-live Indians, including papooses
and Bquaws. on this part of this reser
vation, lie seemed greatly amused
when asked why they were dancing, and
6aid that they were dancings for fun.
He also said that they did not want
to get into trouble with the whites, as the
Chippewas had been friendly since the
days of their grandfathers, and that
they would not fight unless compelled
to do so. lam sure that there will be
no trouble and that the settlers will re
turn to their farms, and all will be quiet
in a day or two, without any outside
help. The farmers on the border of the
reservation have been stealing some
timlier lately, and I hear that the In
dians have been trying to stop them,
and may have made some threats, which
may have caused the present scare.
Gen. Mulien is still here, and is fully
convinced there will be no trouble, but
will take necessary precautions to make
the people feel safe.

THE SMOKE OF BATTLE

Omaha, and the Seventeenth infantry
to Cheyenne this morning. Col. Heyl,

a corps of engineers, left this morning
to make a survey of the Wounded
Knee battle field on the 30th of
last December. It was in this bat
tle, it is claimed that Col. Forsythe
transcended his instructions in go : 'ig
beyond the Mission. The serious ..1
ness of Agent Pierce has necessitated
the appointment or Capt. Dougherty, of
the First infantry, to act in his stead.
All persons not regularly employed
about the agency have been ordered to
leave the reservation. Gen. Miles is
holding daily talks with Indian chiefs
with a view of selecting ten of them to go
to Washington. The sick and wounded
of the Seventh cavalry were forwarded
to Rush ville, whence they will travel
with their regiment to Fort Riley. They
are victims of the Wounded Knee light,
A number of wounded were also sent to
Omaha. Only four troopers now remain
in the field hospital. Gen. Miles expects
to leave here in a few days, taking with
him about fifty Brule Indians, whom he
will quarter at Fort Sheridan, Chicago,
where they will be instructed in the
school of the soldier and .inducted into
the habits of civilized life.

The Work of Unseating: Re
publican Contestants Al
Brutal Actions of Republican
Legislators at Spring- *
Special to the Globe.
Piekke, S. D., Jan. 24.— Two ballots
were taken to-day in joint session with
out materially altering the vote of the
several preceding- days. Moody had 77,
Tripp 25, Harden 23, Kyle 10, Croze 14.
The remainder of the 52 votes were
scattered among eight other candidates,
and the deadlock is unbroken. Argu
ments on the Lawrence county contests *
were concluded this morning, and at 5
p. m. a vote was taken to adopt.the ma
jority report to unseat Graham, Repub
lican, and seat Burns, Independent,
which was adopted by 62 to 60. On
Monday four other contests from
Lawrence county will come up, and this
vote presages that the Independents
will be seated and the Republican
minority will lose four more votes.
Moody's men have at last given up
hope and lie will retire. The unseated
Republicans are from his home county,
which makes the discouragement doubly
worse for South Dakota's tin-plate
statesman. Republicans generally see
in the action of the fusionists to-day
that it is entirely hopeless for a Repub
lican to succeed Moody, and that the
best they can do from this on is to name
some other candidate besides Moody
and keep up a show of resistance by
dilatory tactics. On the other hand,
the Democrats are jubilant and compla
cent. This is the exact outcome they
have planned, and they claim to see in
the present situation a speedy election
of Judge, Tripp, as all the fusion candi
dates will withdraw in favor of him, he
being the strongest. Representative
Kelly, Independent created an uproar
in the house just before the vote was
taken by openly charging that he had
been offered $1,000 to vote against un
seating Lawrence county Republicans,
and claimed it was Homestake mine
money. A Republican member named
Hall, to deaden the force of this charge,
also claimed he had been offered a like
amount to stay out of the Moody caucus,'
and they both offered to go before an
investigating committee. Monday's ses
sion promises senatorial developments,
and the excitement to-night is intense
in all quarters.
Illinois Republicans Refuse to
Pair to Save a Man's Life.
Springfield, 111., Jan. 24.— The lead
ers of the two political parties suc
ceeded in keeping their full member
ship in the city to-day, although there
were countless rumors last night about
members having escaped to their homes
on late outgoing trains. The first bal
lot showed no change from previous
votes: Palmer 101, Oglesby ' 100,
Streeter 3. The balloting continued
without interruption and without
change. When the eighth ballot of the
session, or the twentieth since the be
ginning was had, there was a general
feeling of restlessness throughout the
assembly, and it was with diffi
culty that the steering commit
tees restrained certain members from
going to dinner. There were negotia
tions on behalf of the Democrats fbi an
adjournment,but the Republicans stood
firm in the determination that the mo
tion should come from the Democratic
party. The F. M. B. A. men assumed
the same position, and the Democrats
were in a somewhat embarr ssing posi
tion. The ninth and tenth ballots
showed no change, and the eleventh
was ordered. Before the roll call began
Evans (Rep.) who desired to go home to
his sick wife, moved to adjourn. There
were cries of "No" from both sides, but
on a viva voce vote the speaker declared
the motion carried. The Democrats are
king a pair for Mr. Adams, who will
have to undergo a surgical operation.
His physicians say he must have one
eye taken out if his life is to be saved.
The Republicans have not consented to
the pair, and none will probably be
granted. Chairman Jones, of the stale
committee, advised the party managers
to keep their own ranks intact and
avoid bargains of any kind.

Kansas Politicians Grow More
Topeka, Kan., Jan. 24.— first
caucus of the Farmers' Alliance mem
bers of the legislature on the senatorial
question proper, was held to-night.
It was governed by the rules
of the Farmers' Alliance, and
strictly a star chamber session. Mem
bers were pledged to secrecy; The Al
liance senatorial candidates were called
before the caucus one by one, and were,
permitted to give an account of their
accomplishments aud qualities which
they thought would entitle them to the
honor of succeeding Mr. Ingalis. Be
fore the candidate was permitted to
even address the caucus he was
obliged to. bind himself by oath
to abide by the decision of the
caucus, and not bolt the nomination.
This leads to the conclusion that the
caucus nominee will receive the full
party vote. All the candidates were on
hand to-night, that is. all who were Al
liance men and who were not ruled out
at the caucus of last Thursday. The in
eligibles are the Alliance congressmen
elect and those members of the Alliance
who have joined the organization since
the recent election, and who did not
contribute to the Alliance victory on
that occasion. This rules out Jerry
Simpson, congressman-elect . from the
Seventh, the most popular man with
the rank and file .of the Alliance, and;
John Davis, congressman-elect from
the Fifth district; Col. W. A. Harris,
the ex-Confederate from Leaven worth;
Gen. C. W. Blair, a Democrat;
ex-Gov. John P. , St. John, and two
or three less prominent. The candi
dates who appeared before the caucus 1
and pressed their claims were' Speaker
Elder, of the lower house: Judge Pfef
fer, editor of the Alliance Advocate;;
Judge Doster. judge of the district
court at Holton; John F. Willits,;
Alliance candidate / for governor '
at the late election; S. M. Scott,;
a farmer; C. M. Scott, state lect
turer; Frank McGrath, president of the
state alliance, and Judge Hiram Stev
ens, of Kansas. City, Kan., who made a
vigorous campaign against Senator In
galls at the election; Rev. A. J. Cole,
representative from the Hutchinsou dis
trict. No nomination had been made
at midnight, and the proceedings at that
time were kept secret.
THE INGALLS IDEA. *
His Voice Is Still for War and the
Grand Array. \
. Topeka, Kan., Jan. 24.— mass meet
ing was held to-night in the interest of
Senator Ingalls' re-eloction to " the
senate. Several prominent Kansans
spoke in favor,; of Mr. Ingalls' re
election, as did also Col. Livingston,
president of the New York State Farm
ers' Alliance. He denounced the Kan
sas alliance as. being dominated by the
Southern branch of the organization,
which, he said, he hoped to gain control
of the national government and repeal
all past pension legislation. Then Mr.
Ingalls was brought before the > meet
ing. He was given an ■ ovation.
He said , the- time, for his
speech - making had . passed, and
that the battle ., was now on. He was
not here to deliver speeches, he said.
He had another errand and another
mission, and that was to be returned for
the fourth term ■to the United States
senate. [Cries of "You are going back."
Nobody could predict the result of the
coming election in the legislature, but
he confidently hoped for success. Con
tinuing, he said: *
"1 am profoundly grateful to the G. A.
R. for their presence here. Whether I
am defeated or elected, whenever they
may be assailed, no matter where may
be the forum, no ;■ matter who may be
the adversary, 1 shall respond to the
challenge of the insolent opposition to
the Grand Army of the Republic. Should
1 go down 1 shall see that there is not a
maimed or crippled soldier who shall
not feel that he has lost a defender." ~

Which Can Be Readily
The Strike of Chicago & Erie
The Central Traffic Associa
tion Seeks to Avoid Dis
CniCAGO, Jan. 24.— President John
M. EgKU, of the Chicago, St. Paul &
Kansas City road, and Judge Lusk, the
general counsel of that road, arrived in
the city this morning from the East.
They spent two weeks in New York and
Boston, and while in the latter city com
pleted a contract with the Chicago',
Burlington & Quincy people, by which
they are to have the use of a portion of
the Burlington tracks at St. Joseph.
The failure to complete this contract
earlier was the cause of the delay on
tlie part of the Chicago, St. Paul &
Kansas City in opening its through line
between Chicago and Kansas City, but
as the lease has now been perfected,
there is no longer any question that
through trains wili begin running Feb.
1, not only from Chicago, but also from
St. Paul > and Minneapolis to Kansas
City. The time table is now in course
of preparation. The company will use
the tracks of the Wyandotte & North
western in getting into Kansas City
from Leaven worth. Concerning his in
dictment by the federal grand jury at
St. Paul, President Egan said:
"1 know nothing about it except what
I have seen in the press dispatches, but
1 take it for granted that the report is
correct. Ido not feel in the least dis
turbed about it because I believe it is an
eiror that will be easily rectified when
tlie case comes to trial. In March, 181)0,
we sold 5,0«o first-class limited tickets
to one Charles Petscti,at the regular rate
of ?7, .St. Paul to Chicago. Afterwards
the rate was advanced and Petsch sold
the tickets at less than the new rate.
The transaction was perfectly legal and
fair. The indictment, we understand,
was on the false belief that Petsch was
selling our tickets and not his own and
tlie original sale of the tickets waa
purely fictitious, designed to enable the
company to do business at rates lower
than those agreed upon by its com
Judge Lusk corroborated President
statement that the. transaction
SCOTT STAYS OUT.
The Strike Settled on the Basis of
Chicago, Jan. 24.— General Manager
Tucker, of the Chicago & Erie, has just
announced a settlement of the strike on
that road. By the -terms of the agree
meent Train Dispatcher Scott is not to
be reinstated or re-employed, but all
other employes are to be allow.cd to re
sume work. The conductors requested
the dismissal of one man, but as he had
voluntarily resigned'before the proposi
tion reached the Chicago officials, no ac
ion was necessary. The settlement of
the trouble was reached at about 10
o'clock a. m. General Manager Tucker,
Vice President Thomas and General
Superintendent Moorhead have been in
communication by telegraph with strik
prs who have been in session all the
forenoon at Huntington, Ind. A final
agreement was only reached when the
officers to whom the conductors ob
jected voluntarily resigned. General
Manager Tucker said the strike was
wholly due to the men being misin
formed as to the intentions of the com
pany. Pledges have been given by tlie
company not to discharge any of the
employes except for cause, as in the
case of Scott. The fact of any of the
men being members of any labor organ
ization is not to prejudice them in the
eyes of the company. Orders were is
sued from headquarteis, at noon, to
notify all train crews to report tor
work at once, and the officials ex
pect to have the entire road in full
running order by to-morrow mornimr.
An employe of the company is responsi
ble for the statement that the head
quarters of the road— now located at
Huntington— together with the repair
shops, will be removed to this city. Tne
reason given for the removal is that the
company was displeased at the manifes
tations of sympathy made by the citi
zens of Huntington with the strikers.
There is every indication that the strike
will speedily be settled. The train from
Huntington, Ind., did not bring tlie
grievance committee. General Super
intendent Moorhead was a passenger,
however, and when questioned said that
everything pointed to an adjustment of
the difficulty. His statement was con
curred in by a conductor who has sus
tained the striking element. How the
Scott matter has been fixed up is not
known. Mr. Moorhead is in conference
vvitn General Manager Tucker.
Lima. 0., Jan. 24."— It is officially stat
ed here that the strike on the Chicago &
Erie was settled at noon to-day, and
trains are running here again. Train.
Dispatcher Scott withdrew his demand
forreinstatement. and the officials prom
ised that the conductors and dispatchers
engaged in the strike shouid not be dis
charged for the part taken in the strike,
and that all pinployes should be treated
fairly and impartially hereafter. The
strikers demanded the discharge of
William Fallon, a non-union engineer,
which was granted.

Judge Jackson, of Kentucky.
Rules on an Important Question.
Louisville, Ky.. Jan. 24.— Judge W.
H. Jackson, of the circuit court, to-day
decided the lottery cases before him in
favor of the lotteries. John H. Mansier
was indicted for selling Frankfort lot
tery tickets, and again for selling Henry
academy tickets. There was no dis
pute as to the facts. Judge Jackson
holds the act of May 23, 18'J0, repealing
the lottery licenses.is void.and the tend
er of . required tax of $2,000 for each of
the lotteries at the required time was
in effect obtaining a license, although
State Auditor Norman refused to issue
the license till the courts had passed
upon the case, lie said:
-, The renewals issued on Jan. 2, 1890, by the
auditor are. on their face, licenses and not
mere applications for lieeuses. as is so stren
uously contended for by the common
wealth's attorney. '-This license, having
been granted on Jan. 2, ]S9O, is not impaired
by the act of May 23. 18!) O. The act, it valid,
is not retroactive in its effect on the Frank
fort Lottery of Kentucky or the 'Henry,
academy or Henry Female College lottery.
This : act is ; clearly void. No decision, Eng
lish or American, can be found that per
mits a discrimination, between the members
of a class. This court judicially knows from
reports of opinions of the court of
appeals ■ that there are other lot
teries embraced in the class desig
nated in section 22. The legislatnre may se
lect a class or legislate in regard to the class,
but having . selected the class, it cannot dis
criminate between those who compose it.
This is elementary law. With a general law
upon the statutes in regard to licensing tav- ;
ems, "one might as well attempt to pass a law
making it unlawful for the 'county court to
license the Gait house or the Louisville hotel.
Every partial or private law secretly propos
ing to destroy or to affect individual rights
or does the same thing by affording remedies
leading to similar consequences, is uuconsti
tional and void.
The cases are test and will go to the
court of appeals.
