in the Northwest.
Associated Press Dispatches.
Chicago, Nov. 19.—A special from
Rushville, Neb., says as soon as the
troops arrived there today, couriers
rushed with the news to Pine Ridge
agency. Word was received tonight
that the Indians under Red Cloud de
clare that they will meet the troops in
battle tomorrow. Agent Royer and his
Indian police are powerless. One of
them. Thunder Bear, arrested a bad In
dian last Saturday, but was overpowered
and the prisoner released. Several
other prisoners were released, and the
rebels threatened to burn the agency
The Indians at Pine Ridge agency are
about equally divided among good and
bad. Red Cloud and Little Wonder
have been fermenting trouble for several
weeks, while American Horse and
Young-Man-Afraid-of-his-Horse tried to
pacify the warriors.
Last week a big meeting was held
thirty miles from Pine Ridge agency, at
which a reputed apostle of "the Messiah
was present. He told the Indians to
return to the agency and await the com
ing of the Messiah, who is to arrive to
morrow, in the form of a buffalo. He
will give the signal for the opening of
the conflict which is to annihilate the
white race. This fact causes great fear
in the minds of old Indian fighters; un
less there is an absolute failure to get
word from the Messiah on the day of
the arrival of the troops,a conflict is cer
tain. Major Butler's column went
into camp tonight, prepared for what
now seems a fatal combat. Many of the
friendly Indians have left the agency,
and are now encamped at Rushville.
They have signified their intention of
aiding the whites.

GENERAL MILES' REPORT.
He Admits That There Is Cause for Ap
Chicago, Nov. 19.—General Miles was
seen by an Associated Press reporter
this evening, and asked for the latest
information about the Indian troubles:
"The same turbulent spirit among the
Indians is manifested at the Rosebud,
Pine Ridge and Cheyenne agencies, as
yesterday," said he. "There is a more
threatening state of affairs at the Pine
Ridge agency than elsewhere, and my
latest official reports are that troops
have gone to Pine Ridge from Rosebud.
General Brooke, with three troops of
cavalry and five companies of infantry,
will reach Pine Ridge tomorrovv
morning. At the same time
Lieutenant-Colonel Smith will reach
Rosebud with three companies
of cavalry and three of infantry. In my
opinion these forces will be sufficient to
protect the lives and public property at
the agencies, if the Indians do not com
mit any overt acts before the arrival of
the troops. I think the appearance of
the soldiers will have a quieting effect.
"I have information that night before
last, American Horse had a narrow es
cape from assassination at Pine Ridge.
He is a prominent Sioux chief and a
friend to the United States government.
He always has been inclined to peace
and loyalty, and I can attribute his at
tempted assassination to nothing but
the hostile and disaffected spirit of the
turbulent Indians. He has been stren
uously opposing their actions."
heferring to a dispatch saying that it
was rumored that an oittbreak had
taken place at the Rosebud agency, the
general said he considered the story pre
mature. Both Generate Ruger and
Brooke are acting with the greatest dis
cretion and care to prevent hostilities,
protect settlements and maintain gov
ernment control over the Indians.
"The danger is not over," said he,
"however much that result might be
desired. The disaffected Indians are
scattered over several hundred miles of
territory, and aggregate in round num
bers six thousand warriors. The troops
scattered over this territory number
about six thousand, and not more than
fifteen hundred of thisnumberare effect
ive mounted troops."
TROOPS ON THE MARCH.
Gen. Brooke Hastens to the Scene of
Omaha, Nov. 19.—General Brooke,
commander of the department of the
Platte, has left for the scene of the ex
pected Indian trouble. General Brooke's
command will, it is expected, leave
Rushville tonight and the cavalry are
under orders to move from there not
later than 11 o'clock tonight, with the
aim of reaching Pine Ridge agency at 4
o'clock Thursday morning. The inten
tion of the command is to mass as many
troops as possible at the same moment
in the vicinity of the agency. Agent
Ryan at Pine Ridge, telegraphed the
general repeatedly, and when the order
was issued centering soldiers in the vi
cinity of his station, begged that the in
formation might be withheld from the
newspapers. He feared it would reach
the savages as soon as it would
be settled, and before the troops could
prevent it the Indians would massacre
every white person found on tbe reser
It has later been announced that the
Indians at Rosebud have risen en masse
and are proceeding to Pine Ridge, the
adjoining agency, which is about fifty
miles distant. If it should prove to be
well founded, all the available troops
will be ordered to the scene of the
trouble immediately. So far as known,
the troops of trie department of Dakota
have not yet been called for.

wages. The Chinese fishermen are left
penniless after their summer's work,
and about 200 marched to the store of
Tong Fung, one of the labor contractor's
bondsmen, and forcibly took possession
of the store. About fifty of them closed
the heavy iron doors and declared that
they would remain inside until they re
ceived their wages. The rest went to
Chow Chong's store, another bondsman,
and were only prevented from capturing
the place by the interference of the
police. After a hard fight the Chinese
were dispersed. Serious trouble is an
ticipated, and the Chinese Six compan
ies have issued a proclamation to the
fishermen, stating that they will do ail
in their power for them. Tong Fung's
store is still in possession of the rioters.

augmented attendance. An essay was
read by E. J. Wyckson on the Practical
Study of Entomology in Schools.also one
from Alexander Crow, on Insect Friends
and Foes, and from H. K. Snow, on
Chemical Fumigation. The last paper
produced the principal discussion of the
session. The fruitmen from the south
ern portion of the state all claimed that
fumigation with hydrocyanic gas was
saving the orange orchards of the state.
They report that the coming crop of
oranges will be the largest and finest
ever grown in the state. All the growers
oi citrus fruit, apricots and prunes are
enthusiastic over the season's prospects.
At today's session of the convention,

A SACRAMENTO JUDGE DECIDES
An Injunction Granted the Sacramento
Bee to Restrain Its Striking Employees
from Injuring Its Business.
ento, Nov. 111. —lii the case of
James McClatchy & Co., proprietors of
the Evening Bee, against G. W. McKay
et al., prominent members of the Sacra
j mento Typographical union and the
| Council of Federated Trades, who were
conducting a systematic boycott against
the paper, Judge Armstrong granted the
restraining order asked for, forbidding
the boycotters from doing any acts tend
ing to injure the business or property of
the paper. The order of the court is
made to include advertisements in news
papers and printed circulars. The de
cision is of great interest, as it goes to
establish the illegality of the boycott.
The boycott was brought against the
Bee to induce the management to accede
to the terms of the striking employees.
The immediate cause of the strike was
the discharge by the Bee on Octobei
10th, of a stereotyper who, it was
claimed, had broken his contract and
had badly used the machinery in his
charge. The Typographical union de
manded his reinstatement, declaring he
was discharged simply because of his
unionism, that the charges against him
were false and that his place had been
filled by a non-union man. The man
agers of the paper refused to accede to
the union's demands, and claimed that
the new stereotyper was a union man,
and that the charge of abuse of machin
ery was founded on an expert's report.
The court considered the subject from
the statutes and common laws stand
points. The political code says: Every
person is bound to abstain from injur
ing the person or property of another,
or infringing on his rights.
The decision was in the following
words: "The defendants are resnonsi
ble_ for all the acts tending to injure
plaintiff's business, if done intention
ally. The acts of the defendants
are certainly unlawful and infringed
upon the rights of the plaintiffs. The
defendants claim the right to speak and
to print as they will, under the state
constitution, but the same section says
they are responsible for the abuse of
that right. Defendants are insolvent
and cannot pay damages. If they can
not be restrained, plaintiffs are not guar
anteed the right of acquiring, possessing
and protecting property, guaranteed by
the constitution. If plaintiffs have no
redress there is no security for property
or rights. The injunction is granted as
