Sitting Bull and His Pand Bid Defi ance to the Soldiers. Uheyennes Desert the Dancers and Knlist With the Government—Bitter Fends Engendered. Associated Press Dispatches. Omaha, Neb., Nov. 25.—A special from Pine Ridge says: It is learned tonight that Indians are en route from Rose bud, GOO strong, plundering the deserted settlers' houses along the route, also killing cattle and feasting on fresh beef. Seventy-five Cheyennes were enlisted as scouts by • General Brooke tonight. Watch is being kept over Red Cloud's band, as it is feared small raiding parties are about to start from his camp. There were no disquieting developments at Pine Ridge today. The issue of rations goes on, many of the dancers are coming in for them, and being treated the same as the others. The ranches which the Rosebud In dians have been raiding, were vacated by the occupants when the exodus of settlers occurred two weeks ago, so there is no danger of any loss of life. Colonel Wheaton arrived today with several companies of infantry, and he and Gen eral Brooke had a long consultation, the purport of which is not learned. Scouts arrived this evening report that the ghost dancers have concen trated their forces, and tomorrow Little Wound will ride in for a conference with the agent, and General Brooke. Until yesterday a large percentage of the Cheyenne Indians were camped with Red Cloud, but they have moved away from his camp and established their own. This action, and the will ingness of the Cheyennes to join the scouts, has engendered a bitter feeling between the two tribes, and the alli ance of the Cheyennes with the mili tary, which is taking place, is likely to make the Sioux even more bitter toward the soldiers than they have been. Minneapolis, Nov. 25.—A Tribune special from Pierre says: Every thing is quiet at the Cheyenne agency. At the hostile camp on Cherry creek, how ever, yesterday several turbulent Indi ans captured an entire herd of cattle, which were to be slaughtered for their monthly rations, and taking them to their village, issued them to suit them selves, while the man in charge dared make no resistance. THE FAITH SPREADING. The Tribes in Indian Territory Inaugur ating Ghost Dances. Ka->'>;\s City, Nov. 25. —A special from Arkansas City tells of excitement among the Indians in Indian territory over the Messiah craze. A delegation of Poncas, Otacs, Missouris and lowas returned to the reservation today from a pilgrimage to the Cheyennes, where they learntd all the latest news of the Messiah. These Indians dwell on adjoining reservations, and will inaugurate a ghost dance Fri day. Lawrence, Kan., Nov. 25. —Joe Ab ner, a Cheyenne Indian, from the Chey enne and Arapahoe reservation, Indian territory, says the Messiah craze has taken hold of the Indians there. They are arming and becoming very restless. A Sioux, acting as a missionary, came from the north to teach the new religion o the southern tribe. He preaches to them that anyone who does not believe in the new religion will be destroyed, and so works upon the imaginations of these people that they fall prostrate to the ground, and while lying there the missionary pretends to cast some spell on them. When they arise they declare that they have seen the new Christ, and at once join in the ghost dance. The new religion has also spread to the Kio wos, Comanches and Apaches. SULLEN SITTING BULL. He Acta Ugly and Bids the Soldiers Defiance. Minneapolis, Nov. 25.—The Tribune's Standing Rock special says: Two scouts returned today to Fort" Yates, from a visit to Sitting Bull's camp. They found Bull and his adherents very ugly. He told them he understood soldiers were coming to take him, but he had his run ners out, and on the first news of sol diers he and his people would leave. They have abandoned the white men's houses, said he, and will not return to them or to the agency. The supposition here is that if Sitting Bull hears of se rious trouble at Pine Ridge, or if the military attempt to take him, he and his followers will make at once for the lower agency, thereby declaring war. Canadian Precautions. Winnipeg, Man., Nov. 25.—Private inlormation is received from the domin ion capital that the military forces have been ordered to be in readiness to pro ceed to the international boundary to pre vent any American Indians who are thought about to go on the warpath, from crossing into British territory, or inciting British Indians to join in the uprising. At Cheyenne Agency. Pierhe, S. I). Nov. 25.—A party of Pierre people have just returned from Fort Bennett, where they witnessed the issuance of rations to the Indians.

Nkw York, Nov. 25.—The long ex pected glove tight between George God trey (colored), of Providence, and Ed Smith, of Denver, took place tonight in Hoboken, under the auspices of the Puritan Athletic club of Long Island City, and resulted in a victory for God frey.

Attorney Lucking says it is optional for the creditors to seize or permit the business to continue. The assets at par value are worth twice the indebtedness, but in the case of a forced sale the result will be bad. Mr. Potts has been sick for a long time, and by some the embarrassment of the com pany is attributed to bad management during his absence. It is said the lia bilities of the company amount to $1,500,000, and the assets to $2,000,000, much of which is hard to realize on. The Baring Reorganization.

WEDNESDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 26, 1890. LOYAL TO PARNELL. The Irish Party Re-elects Him to the Leadership. Gladstone's Earnest Protest Was in Vain. Many Liberals Deserting from the Parnellite Ranks. Home Rule Receives a Serious Set-Back. The Queen's Speech Immediately Agreed to. Associated Press Dispatches. London, Nov. 25. —A meeting of the Irish home rule members of parlia ment waa held today, before the opening of the session of the commons-. Parnell was present. He was loudly cheered as he entered the room. A mo tion was made that Parnell be re-elected chairman of the Irish parliamentary party, and it carried unanimously. Parnell made an address to the meet ing, in which he thanked his followers for his re-election. He said it was for the Irish members to decide whether he should lead. If their decision had been negative, or if there had been any diversity of opinion, he would cheerfully have withdrawn from public life. Noth ing but the conviction that his col leagues desired still to utilize his ser vices in their common cause, induced him to resume the position which his altered circumstances exposed htm and them to the attacks of their opponents. Parnell in His Old Seat. There was a full attendance at the opening session of the commons. Par nell was present. He took the seat be usually • occupies, but soon retired to the lobby. When the deputy speaker read letters announcing the conviction of Dillon and O'Brien, Parnell reap peared and from the end of the benches pushed his way forward to a seat on the third bench. Shortly after Parnell re appeared, Gladstone entered the house and was greeted with loud cheers. Gladstone's Displeasure. The press association states that if Parnell persists in retaining the public leadership of the Irish party, Gladstone will refuse to countenance any amend ment to the address in reply to the queen's speech, and will immediately return to Hawarden and not appear iv parliament until the Christmas holi dnys. ~ j.->\ Liberals Deserting, Several Liberal candidates have an nounced their withdrawal from the campaign, foreseeing defeat. The Parnellites openly assert that they will stick by Parnell, even if they delay home rule fifteen years. A meeting of the tfationalists • was held tonight, but nothing was done. Another haß been arranged for tomoi row. GLADSTONE'S PROTEST. A Seusatlon Caused by the Publication of a Letter from Him. London, Nov. 25.—At the request of Gladstone, Morley has communicated to Parnell a letter written Monday to Mor ley by Gladstone. In it Mr. Gladstone says: "After using all the means of ob servation and reflection in my power, I arrived at the conclusion that, notwith standing the splendid services rendered by Parnell to his country, his continu ance at the present moment in the lead ership would be productive of conse quences disastrous in the highest de gree to the cause of Ireland." Gladstone adds, as a further expres sion of his conclusions, that Parnell's continuance as the leader would not only place many friends of the Irish cause in a position of great embarrass ment, but would render his (Glad stone's) retention of the leadership of the Liberal party, based as it has been mainly upon the prosecution of the Irish cause, almost a nullity. These views, he says, he had expressed person ally to McCarthy. The expressions of his views he begged McCarthy to regard as confidential if he found that Parnell contemplated spontaneous action; but he also begged that McCarthy would make known to the Irish party at to day's meeting, that such was his con clusion, if he should find that Parnell had not in contemplation any step of the nature indicated. He wrote to Morley as a precaution in case McCarthy should be unable to com municate with Parnell. In conclusion Gladstone says: "I have thought it best to put this in terms simple and direct, much as I should have liked to alleviate the personal na ture of the situation as respects the manner of conveying what my public duty has made it an obligation to say." It is learned that Gladstone had an interview with Parnell before the publi cation of the letter, and urged him to retire. The letter has caused intense excitement in the lobbies. Gladstone is annoyed because Parnell, at the meeting, did not mention his in terview with Morley, and resents Par nell's disregard for his protest. The Conservatists and Unionists gleefully chat over the split in the opposition. The Liberal newspapers in many instan ces comment in the strongest terms upon Parnell, for flouting Gladstone, and his contempt for the Liberal allies. RULE BRITANNIA. The Queen's Speech Agreed to as Soon as ltead lv the Commons. London, Nov. 25. —Immediately after the commons was called to order today, the Queen's speech was read. The speech declares that the relations of her majesty's government with those of the various foreign powers, are unchanged, aud continue peaceful. "The general condition of Ireland," it says, "has sensibly improved under the salutary legislation which you have applied to it. But I have learned with deep regret that a serious deficiency in the potato crop in certain parts threat ens a recurrence of those periods of severe distress to which the population in the western counties is peculiarly exposed by the industries and economic conditions under which they live. I trust the measures of n>y government may mitigate the immediate evil, and dimin ish the probability of its return. It ap pears to me desirable, for the increase of contentment and the diminution of political disturbances throughout Ire land, to take measures for augmenting the number of owners, engaged in ac tual cultivation of land. A measure having this object in view will be laid before you. "Your attention will be invited to the expediency of alleviating the burden Which the law of compulsory education has, within recent years, imposed upon the poorer portion of the people. "In case time for further legis lation should be found, I have directed the preparation of bills for the enactment of a reform system of county government in Ireland analogous to that put in operation for Great Britain; for the establishment of dis trict councils for the extension of facil ities for purchasing small parcels of land in Great Britain ; for amending the law in respect to compensation payable by employers in case of injury to per sons in their employment j for consoli to the public hoaltht for the ment of public trustees, and for increas ing the security of friendly societies and savings banks." Bills to be Introduced. After the reading of the queen's speech, Balfour gave notice that he would introduce four bills relating to Ireland. Gladstone gave notice of the introduc tion of a bill to remove the disability which prevents Catholics froui occupy ing the offices of lord chancellor of Eng land and lord lieutenant of Ireland. Slanev moved a resolution, simply, thanking the queen for her address. Gladstone Interpellates. Gladstone, referring to Smith's an nouncement of the government's inten tion to take up the whole time of the house until the government bills were read the second time, to the exclusion of other important matters, asked: Was the commons to understand that there was not hing in the differences with the United States regarding the Bering sea? Ought the recent persecutions in the Turkish empire to he treated with silence? Had the relations of the gov ernment toward the Emm relief expedi tion been such as to make it the duty of the minister to ascertain the truth of the statements that compromised the reputation of the English people for hu manity ? Referring to Ireland, he said it was unfortunate that the government was not content with stating the improved condition of the country, but thought il necessary to compliment themselves about the improvement. The members of the opposition were bound to express dissent. The list of measures in the speech places the government in no responsible position. Was tbe house to wait indefinitely to learn how they in tended to deal with this greatest ques tion ? The Government's Intentions. Smith, replying, declared that the government had. the strongest hopes that the Bering sea negotiations would be successful. The government took what measures were practicable to abate the sufferings of the persecuted people in Turkey. The government had no right to insti tute an inquiry into the African matter, as the expedition was purely voluntary. Ample measures would be taken to meet the distress in Ireland. The Speech Agreed to. After a few minor members had spoken, the address was agreed to. This ip the first time in fifteen years that the address has been agreed to on the day of the opening of parliament. This sudden ending is explained by the fact that Gladstone intimated today that he would give no countenance to any amendment to the address if Parnell was re-elected to the leadership. IN THE LORDS. Premier Salisbury Airs His Views on . State Topics. London, Nov. 25. —In the house of lords tonight, Premier Salisbury, in an address, said he would not say England's trade with Africa and the colonies would immediately compensate .her for the loss caused by the new American tariff, but it would be a motive for preventing ter ritories iv Africa from falling into the hands of nations exercising the prohibi tion of trade. It was lamentably true that the colonies did not follow the motherland in free ■ trade, yet it was a fact that the trade of Australia increased luster than elsewhere. Replying to queries, he said he could not discuss the recent financial crisis, as the negotiations in progress were of a confidential character. Regarding the troubles in Tipperary, he said the league combination there was armed to defraud, oppress and co erce honest trade. The task of restoring prosperity to Ireland would be hopeless unless such combinations were de stroyed. The government was firmly pursuing the object of increasing the number of persons interested in land in Ireland, thus creating a moral and po litical force which would frustrate the efforts of political agitators.

Ham mond, of Cleveland-street, London, no toriety, who since his exile from his English home has taken up his abode in Seattle, is again in trouble. He is charged with grand larceny, and now occupies a cell in the county jail. The warrant for his arrest was sworn out by Mrs. Augusta Simmonds, a bar-keeper's wife, who accuses him of stealing her $350 seal skin sacque and a $75 gold watch and chain. The principal wit ness for the prosecution is Hammond's 1 former bar-tender, Alex. Todhunter, who says on the night of October Ist, Mrs. Simmonds came into the saloon and was drinking. When she left later in an intoxicated condition, she was without her watch and seal skin sacque. ' The barkeeper says that Hammond admitted that he had stolen the sacque and watch from the woman.

White Miners Escort Their Coolie Rivals Out of tbe County. San Francisco, Nov. 25.—Half a dozen Chinese arrived here today from Stockton, and told a tale of woe. The six Chinese, together with ten com panions, have been employed for several years in the Castle mine, near Copperopolis. Recently some of the white men in the mine were discharged, and Chinese miners took their places. The white miners in that section of Calaveras county held a mass meeting, and informed the Chinese that they must leave the county at once. At midnight the Chinese were attacked in their cabins, compelled to dress, and I leave the camp. They were marched out of town id single file, and walked A SOLEMN silence prevailed in the Court room as the Jury took their places and the Judge instructed the Clerk to ask the customary questions: "Gentlemen," said the Clerk, "have you agreed upon your verdict?" Foreman of the Jury—"We have. n The Clerk —"Do you find the defendant guilty or not guilty." Foreman of the Jury—"We fiud the defendant guilty of selling Clothing at Prices Lower Than Were Ever Before Charged for articles of similar quality." Clerk —"Are you all agreed upon that verdict?" The Foreman—"We are." The spectators were visibly affected as His Honor pro ceeded to inflict the full penalty of the law. "Prisoner," said the grave and dignified Judge, turning to the accused (the proprietor of THE LONDON CLOTH ING CO.), "you have heard the verdict of the Jury. The sentence of the Court is that you still continue to offer for sale your Clothing, and the Court hopes it may be pardoned for remarking that the public is indebted to you for the opportunities you furnish to those who are looking for their moneys worth. -SsB A YEARK- Buys the Daily Hrrald and *2 the Weekly Hebald.

London, Nov. 25. — All the papers comment freely on the Parnell matter. The Daily News says it is With the deepest regret it places together, prob ably for the last tisie, the names of Gladstone and Parnell. The latter will find that Englishmen are not to be per suaded out of their convictions. The News also says Parnell has treated the illustrious Englishman with lament able want of courtesy. Whatever happens to the Irish leader, the libewl party must be saved. The Standard says, even if Parnell de cides to temporize,'the sting will not be removed from the minds of the English home-rulers. I The Post says Parne'l's action threat i ens to dissolve the home rule alliance ! more suddenly than it was formed. ; The Times makes a savage attack j upon Gladstone, saying nothing can con- I ceal that it _rests entirely with close the career of the quondam Liberal leader, which has been the most igno minious fiasco. It says no parallel can* be found for yesterday's political by play, or the position in which it leaves the parties. The Chronicle says : When we call to mind all that Gladstone has borne for 1 Parnell, we can find no parallel for the ! baseness of Parnell's requital. I The Chronicle eulogizes Davitt's-inde- I pendence. | MILD PUGILISM. j The Police Interfere with the Sport-at Astoria. AsTORrA, Nov. 25. —On account of a statement by the chief of police tonight that he would arrest Charles Gleason< and Gannon should they engage in a prize fight, it was agreed the men should, spar ten rounds, the referee to order an I additional round until the question !of supervision was decided.
