K. Callahan (rep ). K. P. Kirley (rep ).
I. 8. Berry (rep.). D. P. Keller (rep ).
James P. Wilson (dem.), E. L. Merritt

announcement cave the republicans a cold
chill, especially those whoso seats are be
oit contested. The committee means
business and will try to keep up with the
senate committee on elections in the way
of vacating sea's, if, indeed, it does not
lead the way. They will proceed with
the contests at once, and will act upon
them according to their merits.

What the result will be can only be
conjectured, but it seems reasonably cer

will report favorably upon tt least three

The secretary of state yesterday placed
in tte hards of Mr Dixon, of Ue. an ap
propriation bill which be desired intro
duced In the house, appropriating ti.r(,N

matter before the democratic steering
committee, and a committee was sent to
the auditor, to ascertain there how much
if any of the tV5 tM) appropriated by the
last (jenerai asseirl.ly remained unexpend
ed. It was learned that there remained
unexpended M,4'.ii 50. The committee
concluded to reduce the sum named in
the bill of Secretary IVarson to $.1ii.ihmj
before its introduction in the house. This

The steirtnu' committee has considered

publican who has sirknrss in his family
left fo.-home yesterday. He rfuuested
some democratic members to pair with
him on sli party votes. The steering
rommi'tee decided that as the democratic
membership was 77. a bare quorum, no
pairs with the republican should he made

Senator t'rawfoi.l, of this district,
seems to be attracting some attention at

while a membtr of
tr-"".use two years ngo. introduced a
stock yards bill tlia passed the popular
branch of the legislature and was bunetl
in the senate through the fine work of
lobbyists. He restored the measure on
the senate journu! today, and he is going
to make a vigorous hVht for its passage"
It was mainly his work for the bill two
years airo mm secured inm his party's
nomination for the sonatorihip anil his
election by a larger majority than any re
publican ever received in the Huck Island
district. The senator feels that he owes
his constituents bis best efforts to rehab
ilitate the measure in the senate and force
it through at any cost. Crawford knows
that if he can Ret the bill as far as the
house it will go through that body fast
enough, because the thirty-five democratic
farmers, the republican farmers and the
three alliance men will undoubtedly com
bine and compel its passage.

first intimation we hnve heard that his
work in the lower house bad anything to

Pun: Ridge Aoevcv. s. D., Jan. 10,
Capt. Taylor, chief of scouts, yesterday re
ceived letters from Short Bull and Kick
ing Be tr, chiefs of the hostile B rules, stat
ing tlat they would surrender at the
agency to-day with all their people. But
these liters amount to nothing in view of
past events, for the Indians change their
minds ibout as fast a, tuey mak0 them
up. Tie desire of the hostiles to come in
Is doubtless prompted by the approach of
the troops from behind and from the
wings. The soldiers are slowly closing ia
on the hostile village. Scouts report that
the troops are so close to the hostiles that
skirmishing continues at intervals during
the day and night.
One Thousand Reds to Tackle.
Red C loud, who escaped from the hos
tiles on Wednesday, says there are 1,000
warrior in the hostile camp, and that
they am as well armed as the soldiers.
This shows the magnitude of the job
which lies before the soldiers, for it is tac
itly adu Itted that whet her the hostiles sur
render o -not, they will be disarmed and dis
mount 1. It cost the Seveuth cavalry
eighty -three officers and privates to dis
arm 130 .if Big Foot's liand, and it is ad
mitted ley everybody here that the hos
tiles who are on White Clay creek will
never gixe up their rifles and pouies with
out a tig it.
Will Resist Disarming.
At intervals of two or three dava the
cordon will be drawn more tightly around
the hostiles until they agree either to
come in iaceably or be whipped Into sub
mission. The disposition thev display to
accept the overtures of Oen. Miles is sus
ceptible of but one interpretation, and
that is they propose to surrender and re
tain thei; arms or die in their defense.
This is backed up by the fact that the ma
jority of those who have come in from the
hostiles a squaws and children who de
sire to get out of the way.
Beginning Their Deviltry.
Hostile began their devilmeut yester
day morn ng by burning the cabins four
miles notth of the agency. Three col
umns of dense smoke in the north show
where the fires are raging. It is said that
Youtig-Mr u Afraid-of - His Horses' cabin
is among t he others burned. The refugees
from the illage are in a pitiable condi
tion. Fourteen squaws and papooses
came over the hills yestenlay morning.
They were leading two jaded to:ltes.which
were heavily loaded with j-isrip equipage.

Sas Antonm, Tex., Jan. 10. The offi

learned Thurs. lay that an attempt was t
be made to n b the west -bound passenger
train between Flatonia and Weildor sta

press messengers were provided with rifles
and pistols. A t the point where the rob

the engineer to stop the train. The train
stopped, and a number of shots from the
traicmen caused the man who signalled
to flee. It is thought that he had confed

Wasuixctox City, Jan. 10. Blackburn
was the first speaker in the senate yester
day on the silver bill. He began by at
tacking the bond clause, which he ob
jected to because it looked to the perpetua
tion of the national banking system, which
had already been doomed. The rest of the
bill fell short of the demands of the peo
ple. The opKneuts of free coinage might
rely on the veto power of the president,
bnt that would prove to he a vain reliance.
The presideut dared not furnish them with
that veto. When the amendment passed
the senate and the lionse, and the bill
went to the president, he dared uot put his
veto ujion it on less he was prepared to
sign the death warraut of a party already
Free Silver a Bore Winner, Anyhow.
But even if the president did veto the
VU that would not save them. Thedeath
(tnell of the present congress, he thanked
3od, would soon be rung, and then would
tome another congress, whose house of
representatives would give free coinage to
ihe American people, even by the vote re
nnired by the constitution to pass it over
the president's vet, nnd the senate would
concur in that action of the peoples' repre
sentatives, so that relief to a clamoring
and overburdened people was now at band,
whether the oppoitcuts of free .coinage
willed it or not,
Not a I'mrty urtlon with niarkburn.
This, with him, wan not a arty ques
tion, for he had denounced the anti-silver
policy of every administration for the last
twenty years. It did not matter to him
that his own pnrty was. for four years, re
sponsible for the endttriug wrong. Cleve
land's administration was just as amena
ble to the criticism and censure as had been
its predecessors or its successor. When
honest toil was doomed to want and pov
erty, no party shackles could chain him to
the defence of that which was its cnuse.
The S.srnrltj- or the Silver Mines.
Morgan next took the floor. S-aking
of the product of American mines in gold
ami silver Morgan asked what other gov
ernment in the world could point to a bet
ter security for Ihe redemption of its
promises, public or private. It might be
assumed that sU0,u0o.isl (probablv Ot.thMi..
oon.oixi) would be taken from American
mines in the next ten years. An issue f
one. two or three dollars tu one dollar of
gold or silver would lie an absolutdv mU
circulation, and with it there would be es
tablished a policy for this coiintrv as safe
and immutable as the (low of water in the
Mississippi river. Then I here would lie
established a policy which (if utilized and
employed in developing the limit i.ilicent
resources of the country, its industries and
its commerce) would iimke the I'nited
States the master of the world on the ques
tion of II n a i ice.

A Fight Over the Nomination.
When the lininiHHtn.li comes up there is
likely to I a very lively fight over it. To
a reporter of the I'nited Press, who spoke
to bim aNmt the nomination, Wolcott
said: -I have only this to say that the
nomination of Hill, to lie followed, as the
president has assured us it will I, by the
