The Messiah to Appear in the Form of a Buffalo, And Give the Signal for the Fray—The Situation Anything but Pleasant 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 buildings. 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. Lincoln, Neb., Nov. 19. — Specials from Cody and Valentine say the set tlers there are very much alarmed, and are coining in in increasing numbers, for protection from the threatened out break. Forty-five members of Buffalo Bill's show passed through Fremont, on their way to Pine Ridge. They said they would use all their influence among their friends there to prevent an out break. GENERAL MILES' REPORT. He Admits That There Is Cause for Ap prehension. 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 tlie Trouble, 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 vation. 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. Cheyennk, Wyo., Nov. 19. —Transpor- tation for the Fort Russell troops was received here this afternoon ; seven companies, | under command of Colonel B. H. Orfiey, are in readiness to move, and expect to leave today for Pine Ridge agency, S. D. No trouble is expected from the Shoshones and Arapahoes, and Indians in Wyom ing. Washington, Nov. 19.—General Scho field received a dispatch from General Miles, today, stating that troops had been sent to Pine Ridge and Rosebud agencies, upon representations that'the Indians at those places had gotten be yond the control of the agents and In dian police. General Schofield sent a reply, approv ing General Miles's course, and adding that the cavalry and artillery at Fort Riley and all other available troops will be placed under his orders, if the emer gency seems to require it. PRAYING FOR A BLIZZARD. The Citizens of Mandan Still on the De fensive. Minneapolis, Nov. 19.—A Mandan special says: An unconfirmed report was received today that Sitting Bull is in irons. Pickets are out at night, and the rules of a military garrison are ob served. A company of troops from Fort Totte.n arrived tonight. The people keep coming in from the country.

Everybody is praying for a bliz zard. W. C. T. U. CONVENTIONS. THE WILLARDITES CONCLUDE THEIR LABORS AT ATLANTA. An Asylum to Be Founded in Georgia.

An Injunction Granted the Sacramento Bee to Restrain Its Striking Employees from Injuring Its Business. 1 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 prayed for." POLITICAL VENGEANCE. A Russian Agent Mysteriously Murdered In Paris. Paris, Nov. If).—General -eliverskoff, a Russian agent in France, died today from the effects of a mysterious bullet wound in the head. One report says a stranger called upon him yesterday at the Hotel Bade, and after he departed Seliverskoff was found by his valet un conscious, shot in the head. Other re ports state that the general received no visitors. No weapon was found. The furniture was not disarranged. The po lice at first attached suspicion to his valet. The authorities are conducting an in quiry into Seliverskoff's death. The police are convinced that his valet had nothing to do with the shooting. The assassin is believed to be a Russian Pole named Podelsky, a servant, who has absconded. The further the authorities inquire into the case the more the evidence tends to prove that the murder was committed by a Nihilist, and that it was an act of political vengeance. A man resembling the suspected mur derer was arrested near the Spanish frontier tonight. Another Russian has been arrested here. The friends of the murdered general do not think the murder was due to Nihilists. IRELAND'S ANSWER. Old Erin Will Not Go Back on Parnell. His Public, Worth Not Eclipsed bj Private Faults.

He yielded to a temptation to which many great and wise men have succumbed since and before the days of King David. He has atoned by what, to a man of his proud spirit, must have been indeed bitter and humiliating, but to the coercionist clamor for his dis missal from the Irish leadership, Ire land's answer is a sharp and decisive no! Irishmen have no mission to judge his private life. Leave that to his con science and to God, who weighs the temptation with the offense."
