The right-hip bop is the newest f h-
Ion of tbe New York promenade, says tbe
New lork World. It Is the direct result
of tbe idiotic walking dress fashion
which turns a flock of handsomely
garbed women loose on filthy ttreett In
skirts which, if allowed to bang, would
sweep the pavement with at least an
Inch and a btlf of their costly material.
To obviate this silly sweep up of tbe re
fuse of tbe shopkeepers' brooms, the la
dles of the promenade may be observed
in great numbers resting their riiibt fore
arm on their right hip. and w,lth the band
extending backward holding up the su
perabundant skirt. Tbe continued pres
sure of thu ribt arm and tbe weight of
tbe suspended skirt naturally retard tbe
movement of that side of the body and
the right-hip hop is tbe result.

Boa Korjcry A Slap at Halatsad Bel
ter and the Barrnndla Case Quay Has
n Election Bill CaptfaTCrty Tfare.
Washington City, Jan. 13. The Beh
ring sea fur seal fishing Question wa
yesterday suddenly and unexpectedly
brought before the supreme court of the
United States, when Sir John Thompson,
attorney general for Canada, through
C-ilderon Carlisle, the American counsel
af the Bl itWh legation, and Joseph C'hoato.
associate counsel, made a motion in the
court for a writ of prohibition command
lug the I'hited States district court at
Sitka to uuiiul the proceedings by which
the schooner W. P. Mat-ward wan libeled in
1S7. ThiH move on the pnrt of t'atuvli.ni
officials, it was stated, was made in belmlf
of ChiiuiIh or iir John Thompson with tliw
full knowledge and consent of the Uritisli
government, ami It seems not to Im.'n
been exctd, ami the attorney gen
eral was taken by surprise when the mo
tlou was iniiile by Mr. Chimin
lave the Attorney tieuerat Two tVeeks.
I he court, ordered that two weeks tune
! granted to the attorney geuernl to make
I showing in opposittou to rhe motion.
The Uritisli Kovertunent, it is believed, has
had this iiuitlerin contemplation for some
time, proltahly since last spring, w hen it
was autiounceil that the negotiations I-
tween the (.'titled Sstates and Kngland on
the IVhring Sea matter were ended. The
schooner W. P. SnywH.nl, of Victoria, It.
O., was captured by the reveuue cutter
Rush. Otpt. Shepard. for killing seal in
Behring Sea. When the capture was
made tbe schooner was on Behring Sen,
lifty-nine miles from any land, and there
were 477 sealskins ou board.
Points Made In the Brief.
In the brief filed by Choate it is urged
that if Russia ever had jurisdiction over
these waters beyond the marine league
not conceding at all that she had it was
not by virtue of her possessions in the
Aleutian Islands and Alaska, but bv the
general consent of other nations. Then
the treaty between Russia and th t'nited
States is quoted from to prove that the
only cession that Russia made to the
Lotted btates whs of the territory of Alas
ka and the Aleutian islands and "the
waters adjacent thereto." Argument is
made to prove that the waters adjacent
thereto are and could be only thrwt. w.-itera
within the marine league from the shores.
Blaine Will Speak Only Ortli l.llly.
Secretary Blaine, when asked nlsint this
movement on the part of the Canadian
government's counsel, said: "This is some
thing that has been threatened for some
time, and of which I have ben qniie
aware. It is, therefore, no surprise to me,
as I had anticipated it. 1 have nothing
whatever to say ou the subject now. I
ball probably have something to snv of
ficially later, and so I do not think it lnt
to talk tor publication at this time Von
may say, however, rhat the department is
not taken unawares "
COMMANDER REITER'3 CASE.
A Court -laitlal That Slay Censure (Secre
WasWNoiuN CUT, Jan. 13. The case
of Commander Keiter is now in the hands
of Secretary Tracy officially. It excites
much interest In naval circle because of the
peculiar circumstances stirroundiug it. and
tbe anomalous po"itloa it occupies. Sec
retary Traov reprimanded Commander
Relter for his action, or lack of ttt tiou,
in the Barrnndla alfair, aud now Cnrn
niauder Reiter demands a court-martial
to determine whether his conduct was not
proper. It Is said at the navy department
that a court martial will probably be ac
Possibilities of the Case,
lu that case. If the court martial justi
fies Commander Keiter In bis conduct in
tbe Barrundia affair, it will, by Implica
tion, ceusure Secretary Tracy for having
reprimanded the officer when he should
not have been reprimanded. On tbe other
band, if It condemns Commander Keiter,
It will lie adding a punishmeut'as well as
approving the reprimand, and whatever
the conclusion' of ttie court, the repri
mand of Secretary Tracy, as the olHdal
head of the navy, will stand as the of
ficial utterance of the navy department as
to CommandecJielter'a conduct.
Hopes of the Navy Officers.
It is believed and generally hope,! by
uavy nfflcers that the request will i.
granted, for the navy aervi uiav there
fore obtain perfectly well defined regula
tions regarding the fesnonsibilitleji of n.
val commanders of the United States. If
a court is ordered it will doubtless lie con
vened at the navy department, though
Commander Reirer will probably prefer to
uo.e ii in .sew i or or some other poiut
away from the influence prevailing there.

PWE RlDOB AOESCT, S. D., Jan. 1!.
Last night it looked as though the Indian
troubles would be ended to day, and that
without further bloodshed. The hostile,
with many warlike demonstrations and
firing of rifles, had advanced to within
about a mile of the Agency, and Gun.
Miles confident expected that by to
night peace would reign at the agency.
Scout Oonrnrd report that the savages
were wild and grow ing more uneasy a
they approached the agency. Tbey feared
they were going lo be swept off tbe face of
the earth for th deviltry they had com
mitted. The crisis will he reached when
the savage KO into camp here. Then it
will only take a spark tq set off the whola
magazine. Artillerymen were galloping
through ihe camp yesterday placing their
heavy gnus in more rommaeding posi
tions, everything WM " arranged that
sny hostile demonstration on the part of
tbe savages would In- met by a fire which
would instantly crush them.
Approach of the Indiana,
The hostiles reached tbeir ramping
ground about noon. Tha frwetacle was
wildly grnud. Of a sudden the sentinels
in Capt. Dougherty's fort saw the Jieads of
the scouts of the aavngist pop up over the
ridges at the north. Here they remained
for Hilly leu luiuutes, apparently scanning
tbe agency. They then disappeared. Fif
teen minutes after a squad of horsemen
appeared on the crest of a distant butte.
Behind them was another squad, and then
came other bauds until the summit of the
snow-covered range swarmed with the red
skins. Through glasses they appeared in
all their barbaric splendor. In their
white sheets they looked like demons
ready for battle. They were now so close
that their rifles could be neon slung to
Itulliloilna; the Old Men.
After remaining motiouless for several
minutes, as though to give all line Ridge
an opportunity to see them, the hostile
moved klow ly down the afdea of the buttea
and into the windiug valley which leads
towards Rsl Cloud's house. They bolted
again, and the soldiers In Capt. Dougher
ty's redoubts saw another grand spectacle.
The war feeling evidently broke out
afresh in the camp, for the young war
riors could l seen firing their rifles about
the ears of the old men, w ho weredouU
less counseling a surrender.
tjnleted vhm at Last.
Then they attacked their own horses and
dogs, shooting them down in all direc
tions. Tliis demonstration was made
within 1. QUO yards of the great rifled can
non which peeps over the breast worka
thrown up by Capt. Dougherty. Skir
mishers' were quickly deployed from the
redoubts with instruct ions not to fir.
Rut gradually the Indians quieted down
and everything looked peaceful; still ev
ery precaution was taken against a sur
prise during the night.
Miles Write to Murrain Mill.
Last evening lieu. Miles nent the fol
lowing communication to Buffalo Bill,
who is In command of the Nebraska Mala
troops: ,-l am glad to inform you that
the entire body ot Indiana are now camped
Laar here, within a mile and a half. They
show every disposition toeojiply with the
orders of the authorities. Xothiug but
an accident can prevent peace being es
tablished, and it will he our ambition to
make it of a permanent character. I feel
that tha stale troops can now be with
drawn with safety, and desire throuuh
you to express to them my thanks for
the confidence they have given your peo

BUFFALO BILL'S OPINIONS.
Be Hopes tnr Purs, but tan Not Predict
It Hnrrly. j
New York, Jan. IS. -The Herald, tmdor
date of Pine Ridge. Jan. 11, prluts a dis
patch from W. F. Cody (Buffalo Bill)
which reads as follows: "Your request
for my opinion of the Indian situation is,
by reason of the complications and the
changeable nature of the red man's mind
and action, a pnzxle. Every hour bring
out a new opinion. Indian history fur-
uishes no similar situation. You must
imagine about S.iltiO Indiana, an unusual
proportion warriors, lietter armed than
ever known la-fore, hemmed iu cordon
about sixteen miles in diameter, composed
of over 8.000 troops, acting like a slowly
closing drag net. "
Despairing. lesnrata and Fanatical.
This mass of Indians is now influenced
by a percentage as despairingly desperate
and f aunt Mai as the late Rig Foot Dart v.
It contains also restrained neutrals, fright
ened and disaffected Ogallallas, hampered
by the powerful Rrules, backed by rene
gade and desperadoes from all tbe other
agencies. There are about S.5uU acting
and believed to be friendly Indians in and
around the agency. Such is the situation
Gen. Mile and the military confront. Any
one of this undisciplined mass ia able to
precipitate a terrible conflict Irom the
most unexpected quarter.
Ml lea Must Ha Let Alaai.
Each of the component Quantities Is to
he watched, to be measured, to be just to.
In fact It is a war with a most wily aud
savage people, yet the white are re
strained by a humane and peaceful de
sire to prevent bloodshed aud save a peo
ple irom tiiemseives. It Is like cooling
and calming a volcano. Ordinary warfare
shows no parallel. Gen. Miles seem to
hokl a firm grip ou tha situation. The
Indians know him. express confidence in
his taaor, truth and justice to them, and
they fear his power and valor as well. A
the matter now stands, he and they should
ne allowed, nntrammeled even by a sug
gestion, to settle the question, as no one
not on the spot can appreciate the fear
fully delicate position.
Thinks It Looks I.Ike Peace.
Thechnff must be sifted from tbe wheat.
and in this instance the cbafi" must be
