would fiht, and that an attack on the

Troops Ordered to the Scene.
The Cheyennes are dauciiig against the
agent's orders. Tully sent a dispatch
Sunday night to the commanding officer
at Fort Keosb, asking him to send troops,
as an uprising is inevitable. The com

quarters at St. Paul aud last night orders
were issued from there to send troops
from Fort Keogh to the Cheyenne agency.
