At the Same Time Theiy Seem Disposed to Zeep Their Guns, Seasible Talk to the Councll by Lien, Taylor-The Cheyennes Depart for' Tongue River, Pitn Eands Atnme, Jwn. 10,.-This after. noon an itaportat eonterenu took pl, e on invtlation of the Ogallaiss in the vnii ty of 'the friendliee' eamp, ix baundred fEiles were prelset, The Ogallals had pre pared a least of hot soses and boiled dog, The only Whlte men present were Lieot, Taylor, Ninth cavalry, commander of the Ogallala soots,and ex-Agent McGilliouddy All the prominent Ogallala and Brule chiefs were present. American Horse made a strong talk in favor of the Indians comply ing with Gen. Miles' disarming order and saying the chiefs should return to the!; homes and bring their young men to te speof their white friends; dissuade them from violence and compel the children to return to shobool. Shor) Bull said many of the Rosebud Indians wanted to come to Pine Ridge because they knew they would be treated better there. They were starved at Rosebud sometimes, They wanted to live with their brothers in one place. People carried lies about the Indians when they were separated. High Pipe and Two Strike also spoke, and were followed by Standins Soldier, a fine young chief, member of the Taylor soonuts. He said some had come to the agency to make trouble and had killed friendly Indians. That had caused soldfers to be sent against them and made Gen. Miles command them to lay down their arms. He hoped all of them would comply with the order, because it would bring peace again. A short time ago he had brought to White Ila (Lieut. Taylor) a good many of Bitting Bull's men. They Were now in damp. They had been well treated and their ponies fed with grain and hay. If Big Foot and his band had at once come in they would have been treated in the same manner. The trouble 'which came to him was brought on by his own people, Dr. McGilliuenddy then gave the Indians a talk, in which he pointed out the errors they had made. He advised them to obey regu. lations in the future. Lieut. Taylor was asked by the Indians to speak. He said he knew very many of the Ogallalas and was satisfied that they were friendly. He did i.t' know the Iuanle po well, but felt that there were many good men among them, The trouble they had experienced had been occasioned by a variety of circum stances. In the greater part of Indian troubles he had observed that the Indians had always good excuse, and he thought they had some excuse in this, and if they wished to remain in neace all they had to do was to comply with the orders of Gen. Miles. Those who had good sense should set the example to and control the young men. Ttey had turned in very few guns and everyone knew they had many more. The Great Spirit had so far this winter given extraordinary good weather. If a blizzard should now come up their children and women would die and they and the sol dierswould suffer. He hoped they would at once comply with Gen. Miles' order so the soldiers could go home. If they did, some of the chiefs would be taken to Washing tonto state their geivanees to the Great Father. Their rights would be recognized by the present officers over them. The council closed in the best possible humor, the Brules having listened intently. Good results are expected from the coun cil. Up to this evening the Indians have turned over tifty-one guns, out of about 1,400 they are believed to possess. Stand ing Elk's and Little Chief's band of Chey ennes left here to-day for the Tongue River agency, a distance of about 400 miles. They are accompanied by Capt. Evan., whose duty, among other things, will be to satisfy settlers along the route that the In dians are peaceable and that no danger need be apprehended. T'he transfer is made in pursuance of an agreement entered into several months ago by Gen. Miles and other Cheyenne commissioners, at the request of the Chveyennes, who are not able to live in peace with t e Sioux. The disposition of the various bodies of troops remains un changed. A WOMAN'NI IEP'ORI. On the Causes and IResnlts of the Wound ed Kinee Fight. WAssnsrrow, Jan. 16.--The commissioner of Indian affairs has received from Mrs. Goodale, supervisor of education at Pine Ridge, a report of the battle at Wounded Knee, She says her information is chiefly from Indian prisoners engaged in it and persons who afterwards visited the scene. turvivors of Big Foot's band are unanimous in the stotement that the Indians did not deliburately plhIn resictanco. The baucks in the in ty were. many of them, unarmed, intending to visit the agency at the invita tion of Ried Cloud. When they met the troops they anticipated no trouble. There was constant friendly intercourse netween soldiers and Indians, even the women shaking hands with the orlcers and mien. The demand for their arms was a surprise to the Indians, but the great nmajority submitted (uiet y. ''he topes had already been senrched and a large number of gun., knives and hatcabhets confisoated, when the searching of the persons of the melt Ibegan. The swomoan say they too were searched and: their knives (wliach they alwa:tys carry for domestio purpoiee) taken from them. A number of men surrendered their rifles and cartridge bolts, when one yooaig tlan, do noribod by the Ildians as at good-for-ntoth ing young fellow, fired a singhl shot. 'ihis called forth a volicy from the troops, and firing and confausion became general. "I do not credit the stateteltn~ made by some that the women e.tried armsand parl ticipated actively in the flight. Want of testimtony i, overwhelmingly against this supposition. Tbhere niay have Ieen ,ne or two isolated osnes of this kind, but there is ino doubt a great majority of women and chilldren, as well as iuanty unarmed men and youths, had rot thought of anything but sight. 'they were pursued up ravines and shot down indiscrinalntely by soldiers. 'rhe kllilng of women and children wss in part unavoidable, owing to confusion. 1'arties who visltod the battlefield Jani. 1 regport that nearly niall the bodies of the men were lyng close to Hig Foot's, while those, of the women and children were coatter.,tl along a distanie of two niles from the seene of the enoutnter."

VACATED IN HASTE. inmate of the Palshe Hotel, Wallerllie Ousted by vre,, Bvu.a, Jan, ld,-[Speelai,-'The Psitel hotel, of Walkerville, was partially dh stroyed by fire at an early hour this mobt ing. The fire was first discovered by Mrs. Wm, Easmlnger, wife of the proprietor, who was awakened by the smoke flling he room, By that time the fsmes had gained such headway that she only waited to giJt the alarm and jumped from a second story' window. In the fall she sustained severe. injuries in the arm and lide and friends were oblilged' to carry her to one of the neighboring houses, where every care was given her. The boarders in the house also had only time to es-' cape, without wviting to seoure theti, clothing, and had4it been a bad night all must have faletld severely. ol far a" can be learnmed Mrs, Ensminger was the only one injured, As soon as the alarm was given the Are ddpartmeant from both the. Alies and the Lexington mines responded, and in a wonderfully short time both had streams playing on the lames. The main building was not materially 'damaged, though the furniture was badly smoked up. The loss will fall most heavily upon Mr. Eneminger, who owned the furnif ture in the building. He had it insured for $1,800. That amount will more than cover his damage. The building is the property of Mrs. Winm. Thomas and was not Insured. It is thought that $1,500 will cover her lose.

Boutt to-day re seived a telegram from Senators Teller and Wolcott sayings "Telegram signed by yourself and others urging acquiescence in el-Senator Hill's nomination as monetary commissiloner resolved. Hill's nomination was intended and has been everywhere rec ognized as an affront to the Colorado sena tors for their course respecting silver, but whatever may be our personal differences we have concluded to request his confirma tion, being animated by a desire to further the truest interests of Colorado, We fear that if Mr. Hill is rejected some mono metallist would be appointed in his stead." The senators also request the governor and other signers of the telegram to join in an earnest effort to reconcile the unhappy dif ferences now existing in the Colorade house of representatives. P'lot of Kansasse lepubliesnt KANSAS CITr, Jan. 10.-A special to the Times from Topeka, Kan., says: Sensa tional developments in the senatorial fight may be expected soon. The Farmer's alli ance in caucus last night decided to unseat seven republican members of the lower house and seat the seven contestant Farm ers' alliance candidates.

The adjourn. ment will be sine die and will prevent the holding of a joint session to elect w .enatpr. The choice of senator to succeed Ingallts Will then devolve upon Gov, Humphreys, who, it is said, will name Ingalls. Scheme to Count loyd Out. LacoLtw, Neb., Jan. 10.-Petitions are being circulated throughout the state ask ing the legislature for a recount of the bal lots east at the November election.

The American association bought out Rochester for $8,1100, Toledo for $8 ,00 and Syracuse for $7, 000. 'Ihe Boston American club must charge lOcents admission. All Play. ers' league sheep must return to the fold where they were reserved, but undoubtedly many of them will be allwed to stay where they are. Everybody was in the best of humor. The new agreement provides for a board of three which shall control the working of the associations. It d'estroys the sales system and the bnlack list, but con tinues the reserve rule in effect. The play era whose saluries are not paid mnav secure release from clubs which are in arrears for fifteen days. Many inportant changes are made, all lookinu for the elevation of the game and justice and harmony between the players, managers and ecpitalists. Knock-Out nt irest Faill. G(EAT FALL.

Spime light is thrown upon the political situation in Chili by the latest Chilian pa perp at hand, It has been known generally and explained here that President Balms 04b has been for the last sixteen months at l erheads with the Chllan chambers; tha be has often changed his ministers, u n accordance with the wishes of the haptbers, and again in opposition to those wisies, He has been constantly acaused of ent Itanifng ditatorial ambitions, and aim inlu t his own re-election or that of his too devited and rather unpopular friend, Senor Manfnonter. The last charge was that Bal. madeda and his agents were tampering with the registration of voters, who were soon to proceed to a general election. George L. Duvall, of Brooklyn, who has been in business in Chili for several years, and recently returned to this country, said to-night that the cause of the trouble was to be found in an agitation in favor of a new election law. "The country is clamor ous," said Mr. Duvall, "for na new system of making nominations for president. The old systembhas no primaries or nomination conventions. The candidates simply an nowsn. theseeeh s,- The president is chosen by indirect ballot, the people first choosing a delegate by ballot and the dele gates electing the president. The intend ents or mayors of the cities, and the gov ernors of the provinces are not elevated by the people. They are appointed by the president and may be removed by him if he chooses. The president is elected for five years and is ineligible for re-elec tion, but this tremendous power of patron age practically enables him to dictate his successor, thus making the party in power in a measure self perpetuatina. President Balmaceda was elected in 81881, His term expires next September. The elections are held in April. He is a very able man and is considered to be very patriotic. His admin istration has been progressive. The country is just now enjoying a remarkably prosper ous era. The revenues derived from the nitrate soda mines acquired in the war with Peru amount to 2(1,000,00( pesos a year, or nearly $24,000,000. The president deemed it advisable to expend this sumn in internal improvements." RUSSIAN ENTEIt'RItSE,,. Transcontisnental Railroad to be Built Seal Fishing. Sr. Perrasnuno, Jan. 16.-Both ministry and press are engaged in discussing two great industrial questions. The first, of utmost importance to the state, is the build ing of a transcontinental railroad; the sec ond is the sealskin exploration in the Komnmandorsky Islands. It is quite de. cided that the government is to build the Siberian railway. It is also decided that it must be one continuo'u line, which will unite the Baltic with the Pacificto ocean. Ile- oause of the financial daifenity, three see tions only will be built to start with, viz.: I'omsk to Irkoutsk, Baikal to IP etensk and Fussouri to Vladivostok, which will unite three systems of waterways, 'i'he rest of the line will be completed as soon as possi ble. The entire line from Znatornst .to Vladivostok, a distance of 74,:K10 verste or 4,t:l)c4 miles will cost, inc.ndiig rolling stck, 841,000,000 roubles, or $1i0,t10.,000. The lines are to be began at different points at the same time aind are to be completed in six years. Thl sealskin question is dune to a long ar ticle in the official paper, baseud upon the stirring report prepared by M. O(rloff, line aiana consul-generial at San Francisco. ''The Iuessian consul in Sian Francisco has been in position to see what was being done by Americans and foreigners on the coast of Knmtschatka, and in a long report to his govcrnment he throws great blame, with a certain mixture of dislike, on the Ameri cani, if one is to judee by the vulgar termns with which he treats them. The Ameriao n community here is indignant. It is to be feared that this spiteful report will lead to the exolusion of Asnericans from any cona cosione on the Kommandorsky islands.
