MANNING, THE CII.V3I 1'IOX, GIVES AN EXHIBITION. fcnnlnn's Illlllniil Hall Ciovvded .Uiothcr I'xlilMtlou This Afteinoon nt 4:T0 How Mnunliu Once Dcfcntcd Uuoe ConMlnp Pescrlptlon of Some of Ills Shots nml u Sketch of Himself, Mr. Charles H. Manning, the champion loolplacr, gnvo an exhibition of his play tit Scaulan's Billiard Hall la-t night. lie first played n game of contltuioti3"Yiaol with Dick rttrtner, Mr. Scarilan's nblo assistant. Dick Is one of the hot pool and billiard plajers in town, hut w lieu Manning had registered 123 points Itich aril had not turned hla ilrst string. Man ning would occasionally pocket fifteen balls on n run, and this had a tendency to make the game one-sided. At the conclusion of this gimo Mr. Manning dlplajcd ids skill in making fancy and dlllliult shots. His first shot vv us as follows1 Two balls, frozen, were placed on tho lower end rail, one. ball lu front of thu other, (he cue ball being nt the oppoiltu endot tho table, Tho play was to striko tho outer ball and hynMss force It Into tho comer pockit. In the stiond shot the balls were placed as In tho first, but tha object In this play wastoforro tho ball next tho railing in tho pockit by a kiss. In the third shot ono hall was placed on tho spot nud another, at an unglo of 15 degncs, was frozen to it, tho cue ball at tho opposite end of thu table. Played on the siot ball and pocketed both balls, ono in each of tho corner pockets. It Is it combluatlon-kiss shot. In tho fourth shot the object b ill was plated on tho side rail next thu side pocket on tho samo side, of tho table, l'lavlng from a position at tlio upper end of tho table, tno cue ball being a few inches away from tho side rail, to pocket the ball on tho rail in the. opposite, side, pocket, tho cttu ball going twfco around tho table and pocketing tho other ball In tho end pocket. 'Iho filth vvnsn illMcuU and beautiful shot. Tho object ball was placed as In tho fourth shot, onthustdo tail fust abovo tho side pocket. Another hall was frozen to It, also along tho rail. A third ball was placed in tho mouth of Iho opposite lower prchct. The cue ball nt tho upper end of the tableiicar thosldo rail. The play was to poikct tho object ball lu tho opposite slduicckci.thoballfroziutoitlnthulowcr pocket, theme ball going round tho tablo twice and pocketing tlic third ball in tha oil""0 lower pocket. Thoehlcf trouble in making this shot is to avoid Iho kissing of tho object iimlcue bill. It required two or thru) trials to accomplish this feat. It Is a shot originated by Mr. Manning nud never before played In public, an in,; to its dlllletiltv unit uncertainly, thu nicest calculation being requital to escape tho disastrous kiss. In tho sixth shot tho ohjcit ball was placed on tho spot, tho second hall being frozen to It on n lino with tho right-hand lower pocket, u thlid ball being placed In tho mouth of tho right-hand upper pocket. Tho cue ball Is plac from tho left of the upper end cf tho table. Tho object Is to pocket nil threo of the ball'. It is fircomplished by play ing on tho ball on tho spot, that ball being kissed Into tho left lower pocket, Iho mo ball Hying around the table and pocketing the, third ball in the right upper pocket. Tho seventh shot was ono made in tho matili gatno vv Itli Do Oro. It vv ns a com bination shot Impossible, to describe, with out n diagram. Tho balls are massed In away that make's it look imposslblu to score u point, but tho champion made the shot with ease. Mr. Manning uinilo n number of other dllllcttlt shots vvJilch would require much spaeo to properly describe. Ono other shot, however, must bo mentioned. Placing four balls on. tho tablo Air. Man ning said. "Tho object of this shot Is to pocket four balls " Then ho let lly with nil his strength. Thocuo ball struck tho object with great force, nud thu object b ill How straight into thu face of ono of tho spectators. Manning shouted "Look out1" l;v crybody dodged. Then tho bill was picked up and passed around, nud tho men vv ho dodged looked sheepish. T ho ball iv ns tossed on tho tabloand bounded lightly about. 'Ihu crowd saw tho trick and laughed and applauded. Tho hall was simply n hollow sphero of celluloid col ored to imltato a pool ball. It weighs about a quarter of tin ounce and couldn't liuvo hurt a ily, This afternoon nt I 30 Mr. Manning will alio another exhibition at Scaulan's, dur ing which ho will play with ono hand only, using no bridge or other rest for tho cue. At this game Mr. Manning has nover been beaten, Indeed, ho was the cham pion ut this stv lo of play boforo ho joined tho ranks of Iho professionals. Ho will also give another display of fancy shots.

Srctttniy Noble JInkcs n .Short Address, After Which the Noble Roils Relate Their Grievances American Horse Criticises the Manner In Which Ills Tt lie Is Ti rntnl-Otlicr Chief Talk. The longdf'lnjcd council between tho dilcgnl Ion of Indian chiefs from tho scene of the recent outbreak at Pino Itldgo nu 1 from other agencies and Secretary Noblo was commenced this morning. It is taking place In tho Attorncy-tlcncral'a room, which has been made historic as linvingbeenthointctlngplacoforsomany other councils with hostile Indians. Among thoso present ivcro Secretary nud Sirs. Proctor, General Ilusscy, Miss Ihuuin Sickle, from Pino Uldgc; Miss Oraco Howard, Senator Casoynutl a number of others. Secretary Noblo entered at 10 20 nnd took his seat nt tho head of tho room. A murmur of recognition ran through the ranks of tho Indians. Secretary Noblo requested Itev. O. S. Cook to act as In tciprctcr, and then made the following address: "To the Ao'W "You vvero renresentcdliere. nnd nianv otvou wcrohero just after the agreement with (Jcncral CroOIc was made. You mado certain requests nnd complaints, nnd you received certain promises from inc. Thero has been trouble slnco then. You have conio ngalu to say what you think proper ns to tho causo of that trouble, and to mako nnv further com lilatntstliat jouseotlt. ThoSccrctary is hero to tell J oil that ho has kept his word, Hut If thero is anything moro that ho can do through friendship for the Sioux ho wants to tin it. IIo is your friend. The Orcat Pather has told him to be your friend, nnd ho says ho has been. Ho wants vou to talk to him as a friend, and ho will meet vou in the same spirit." General Noblo then asked If they had arranged anything in regard to the speak ers. The Sccritary cannot hear them all, and therefore they must speak shortly. -The Secretary then read a list ot those whom ho would hear. This) did not proie satisfactory, Aleo ltencontro of Clicjennolthcr Agency objecting bectuso all the agencies were represented and tho list tlid not include a speaker from each one. Tho Secretary s.iid that this dllll tulty would bo fixed up. John Grass wussclcitcd as flr-t sneaker. Hosaiek "It gives us grcit pleasure to speak to tho Secretary "tid mo nro very glad to hivotlio privilege. "Tliooilgln of the great trouble which has it cently visited us wu cannot state positively. It was on nccouut of our trouble that these representative. of our people have rnmo to confer with you. Vc do not vv Ish to become discouraged and go hack to tho wilder life, but wish lo tako the road thai tho Great Pather has directed its tgwallUn, Certain promi'vl wero mado at tho lasl meeting, and wu want to know how theso promises stand In tho future, lu tho post, If a single In dian commits n sin, the entire family is blamed. What w e desire cry much Is to be given our own tilings. "1 have ahead y said that the representa tives of the Indians have como hero to take yoMr wise word", and wo wish to sug gest things that we desire to talk about. Vo bclirvotbat if wenrn honest nud earn est in urging our children to go to tho schools nud we older people follow tho teachings of Christianity we believe that wo can walk In tho right roul. The schools ami Christianity will lead us along tho right road, and wo deslru the civilians as agents instead of the Army officers. Wohavutomo hero after agree ment nnd council to demand that wo be kept under the caro of civilian ngonts and not military men. You good icoplo in tho Past have Used things so that tho agents cannot steal, ami vvc aro better ngents every vear. I want to speak auoui Biuinung uock especially. "A double promi-edto spring nut there, but It was very quickly put down through tho means of our Indian pollco, in whom wo liaveionlldcnco. Inmnskisl that an Inircn'o or fifty be mado to thu Indian police." John Grass thin shook hands with tho H'crctarv. American Horo next greeted tho Sec ictaiy. "I want toaskjou whether you iv er know of a man who prepared n speech lovcrlng a cirtaln number of topics, mid It was curtailed, do you know whethir nnv thing goodevercamoor it."
