17. Tho fight nt Sitting Bull's camp oc
curred about 6:45 Monday morning, and
for half an hour was of the most desper
ate character. BuH had been Informed
of the coming of the Indian police, and
he and his Immediate followers were ful
ly armed with Winchesters, scnlplng
knives, revolvers and clubs. The Indian
police did not get an opportunity to de
mand the old medicine man s sum
but firing began frou
omcers, ana inreosM me laiier were
killed outright, twtV wounded so seri
ously that thavtfrted before they could
be moved, naiRhrce others slightly.

The bodv of Sitting Bull was secured
by the cavalry and was carried to Fort
Yates. The point at which the battle
occurred is forty-two miles below tho
It is estimated that 150 warriors are in
the band that escaped up the Grand
river after the fight, deserting their
camp and families, and this number is
likely to be increased by other bands.
Lieutenant Casey with a troop of Chey
enne scouts, and Captain Adams' troop
of the First Cavalry are headed
for the north end of the Pow
der river range opposito the mouth
of the Box Elder creek. Captain Fount
ain's troop of the Eighth Cavnlry, with
pack transportation, which left here
this morning for White Buttes, will
probnbly Intercept the band before it
reaches the Little Missouri. If not,
Lieutenant Casey and Captain Adams
will do so.
Settlers who are aware of tho move
ments of the troops arc but little
alarmed, as the weather is such that in
telligence of disturbances and of move
ments, travels rapidly and it is well
known that the troops arc so distributed
as to have the situation in hand.
A general outbreak on the Sioux Res
ervation is not feared, and those dis
affected 'bands which are now giving
trouble will soon be placed where they
will cease to be a cause of alarm for the
settlers. The Sioux Reservation Is sur
rounded by troops, thoroughly equipped
for a winter campaign in the most diffi
cult country. All are in communication
with each other and department head
quarters. No outbreak can become general in
the face of the precautions already
taken, and tho wild rumors which have
caused the population of entire valleys
to fly for their lives are malicious and
groundless. The arch villain is dead,
nnd his followers will soon lose, the en
thusiasm necessary to follow his teach
ings. Troops are hot on their trail, and
before another sunhassct Sitting Bull's
celebrated crowd of dancers will be
good Indians or prisoners.
