A Fresh Plot Entered Into by the Treacherous Savaares. The Assassination of General Brooke to Be the Signal for a General Onslaught. Associated Press Dispatches. Chicago, Nov. 23.—General Miles this afternoon received a telegram from one of his officers at Rosebud, saying that information has been received that the hostile Indians are moving from Pass creek toward Pine Ridge in two parties. This news comes from Indians who have returned from Pine Ridge, and is believed to be reliable. It is re ported that they are going to Pine Ridge agency to get the Indians there to talk to the commanding officer in their be half, the intention being for Chief Two strike to stab the general as the signal for a general attack by his band. The officer adds: "There seems to be no doubt that the leaders mean war, and are only using Prophet Short Bull as a pretext to keep the Indians together. General Miles says the troops have been fully advised of this and other re ports, and due precaution will betaken." General Miles also received this even ing a letter from the Poplar Creek agency, from Captain Huggins. The Indians, he says, are better armed to day than ever before. Sitting Bull's messenger, White Cut, stopped there a week ago on his way back from Oanad. He reported to the Poplar Creek Indians that the Indians north of the line were richer and more prosperous than those who had come back to this country after the Custer affair. White Cut also gave orders that if a hostile shot was fired at any time in Dakota or elsewhere, all the Indians everywhere must rise and do what damage they could and join Sitting Bull and Kicking Bear in the Black Hills. White Cut furthermore told them that the conditions were now more favorable for an Indian war than ever before, as there are great droves of cattle all through the country where the buffaloes ueod to be. A scout fold the captain that he thinks Kitting Bull wants to assemble as large a force of warriors next spring as possible, thinking that even if the expected divine assistance should not come, he could stand the troops oft" for a while, and possibly win some battles and then escape into British Columbia, as he did before, where he would be safe, and could make a treaty with the United States again. Captain Iluggins says reports from Fort Belknap agency indicate that the Indians there are also iv a very excited state. Late tonight General Miles said he had advices irom General Brooke saying the turbulent Indians have evidently changed their minds, and instead of making an attack, are more submissive. What this meant could not be told, but the movements of the Indians are not lost sight of by the officers. The longer they refrain from hostilities, the better it is for the army, which can be con centrated to better advantage. The general also received dispatches tonight from the sheriff of Nelson coun ty, N. IX, saying a friendly Indian brougiit information that two hundred bucks left Devil's Lake reservation. Colonel Cody, "Buffalo Bill," left to night for Omaha, and will go thence to Rushville. Before leaving tonight he said the question of an outbreak was problematical. If the grass was four inches high he would expect it every night; as it is, the season is against an uprising. However, with the fanatical bucks dancing the ghost dance, there is no telling into what a fever they may work themselves. There will, it ap pears, certainly be trouble unless the dances are stopped. On the other hand the interference of the soldiers may pre cipitate war, so it looks bad either way. Bismarck, N. D., Nov. 23. —Considera- ble excitement was caused last night by an assault committed by an Indian on Miss Wright, a stenographer employed in the capitol. While on her way home in the evening, she was accosted by an Indian, and when she tried to evade him, he struck her on the head and knocked her down. The scoundrel then fled. No motive for the assault is known, and it is probable that he was drunk. Miss Wright's injuries are not serious. Today's advices from Standing Rock continued favorable. Rations were issued yesterday, and Agent McLaughlin reports that only a small number of bucks are away. The military authori ties' count, shows that the larger num ber did not appear, however, and today a scouting party crossed the river to tho east side to look up the wandering In dians. All the schools of the agency are closed on account of the excited state of the reds. At the council yesterday the friendly chiefs avowed their allegiance to the agent, and reiterated their oppo sition to Sitting Bull and the Messiah doctrines. St. Paul, Nov. 23. — The Pioneer Press's Pierce. 8. D., special correspond ent, jnst returned from Ft. Bennett, re ports that the officers say no immediate trouble is feared. Some of the Indians are skirmishing around in small parties, and the rest are going to join the ghost dances. The towns of Liebean and Fair banks are absolutely deserted, but the report that seven whites have been killed near the former place is ground less. A Pioneer Press special from Blhnt, S. P., says: General Bowers and the mem bers of the midland Pacific survey, at work eight miles west of Pierce, reached here this afternoon. They say the In dians are in a frenzied condition and liable to commit murder at any time. Friday night fifty Indians surrounded the survey camp and burst into the tent and took possession. All were well armed and could have massacred the whole outfit, but after a powpow, telling the whites to be many miles away before sunrise, they allowed them to depart. The Indians on the Winnebago reserva tion have left to join the ghost dances at Rosebud. The Pioneer Press has the following somewhat improbable special from Washburn, N. D.: It is 'reported that Indian warriors numbering 6000 have cut loose from the reservation below us, and are heading westward. Consider able excitement exists throughout the country. St. Louis, Nov. 23.—General Merritt, commanding the department of the Mis souri, in accordance with orders re ceived from Washington today, started the Seventh regiment of cavalry and a company of artillery, with a battery of four guns, from Fort Riley to the scene of the troubles in Dakota by special train. Washington, Nov. 23. — Secretary Proctor received no information from the scene of the Indian troubles today, other than that already made public. Besides the Seventh regiment of cavalry, which had been started from Fort Riley, the Sixth regiment, now scattered in Arizona and New Mexico, has been or dered to assemble to be forwarded to Pine Ridge. Daring the day the secretary received a letter from the mayor of Buffalo, Wy oming, complaining that there was only a small company of infantry in that vi cinity, and that it was certain that if the Indians break away from the reservations that would be one of the lirst points they would make for. He demanded arms and ammunition or other protec tion. The secretary ordered the mat ter looked into. The agent at Pine Ridge, who yester day requested authority to employ an additional lot of Indian police, has been authorized to employ fifty-five as scouts for the same duties, the limit of the In dian police having been reached. Pine Ridoe, S. D., Nov. 23.—The military authorities admit tonight that a numerous band from Rosebud in en route to Pine Ridge. Dancers came into the agency today in squads, preparing to draw rations tomorrow. Much loud talk is heard. The Indians mainly dis claim any hostile intentions. This atti tude, however, does not satisfy General Brooke or Agent Royer. The fear is now that many dancers will decline to come to the agency for rations, but organize incursions into the country borderingon the reservation. In order that this phase of the question may be properly met, General Brooke has ordered a large body of troops from Omaha and other points to Rushville. Troops at other points are under marching orders to be ready to cut off any raiding parties that may leave the reservation. Kansas City, Nov. 23. —Agent Painter of the Indian Rights association arrived tonight from the Cheyenne and Arapa hoe reservation in Indian territory, and says the Indians havecommenced ghost dances, but are not hostilely inclined. This is the first news of any general ac ceptance of the Messiahic idea by the Indians of the southwest. WORLD'S FAIR .WAITERS. The Dignity of the Nation Must be Maintained. Chicago, Nov. 23.—The national world's fair commission's special confer ence committee had a discussion tonight regarding the action of the local direct ors on the question of jurisdiction. They practically decided that to main tain the national and interna tional character of the fair, the commission must have charge of all intercourse with exhibitors, whether at home or abroad. The soliciting of ex hibits must be done with the consent nnd approval of the national commission. The bureau system will be recommended with the proviso that the chief of each bureau must be appointed by the di rector-general and approved by the com mission and be responsible to it. The fish commissioners from the various states and representatives of the United States commission held a meet ing this afternoon to discuss the ques tion of an exhibit at the world's fair. Although no formal action was taken, the plan for an aquarium exhibit of all the states, each separate, but all under one roof, was evidently regarded as the best. A committee was appointed to meet in Detroit, December 4th, to draw up a statement of needs, and ask con gress for an appropriation. Clearing llouse Report.

REPUBLICAN POLITICS. A Split on the Mayoralty—Markham for Vice-President. The Republicans are up a tree as re gards who they will nominate for mayor. A large faction of the party do not want Mayor Hazard renominated, as oneof the leaders said yesterday to a Herald man : "I don't know who will get it; I would like to see Judge Fitzgerald, or Major E. L. Stern, or Herman Silver, or some such man get it, but none of them will take it; their business inter ests will not permit them to do so. You may be sure that Hazard will not get it if any other good man can be had." The wholesale and retail liquor deal ers held a caucus on Friday evening and decided to support Mayor Hazard, and Theodore Summerland for councilman in the Eighth ward, on the Republican ticket. The friends of Governor-elect Mark ham have united on the proposition to stand by him as a candidate for the vice-presidency in 1892.
