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 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
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.
He Acta Ugly and Bids the Soldiers
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
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. They
emphatically deny that there is any
danger of "an outbreak at Cheyenne
fcgency, although ghost dancing is still
kipt up to some extent.

New York, No\ 25.—Nine hundred
and seventy-four y ß hels of potatoes

eral hundred dollars, offered by the
American Agriculturist for the largest

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. Jerre Dunn was referee, and
held a $2000 purse. From the start
it was plain Smith was overmatched.
He made a game fight, however, and
several times resumed work after lie was
apparently done for. Godfrey gained
advantages in nearly every round, and
in the twenty-third landed a heavy
right-hander on Smith's ear. Smith
staggered and nearly fell, a?id as he was
making an effort to again put up his
hands, referee Dunn stopped the tight,
giving it to Godfrey.

A Big Failure Anticipated.
Detroit, Mich., Nov. 25.—Mortgages
aggregating $000,000, tiled by the Potts
Salt and Lumber company today, is
looked upon as the forerunner of an ex
tensive failure. 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.

capital into deferred shares for the

shares at the rate 120 for each 100 for

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

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.
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.

speech, Balfour gave notice that he
would introduce four bills relating to

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.

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
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.
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.
Many Lives Lost and Much Property
Berlin, Nov. 25.—Dispatches from
Elberfeld say the W'upper river is rising,
and live persons have been drowned.
Great damage has been done in the
vicinity of Barmen. At Bostock and

Seattle, Nov. 25.—Charles K. 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. Hammond was arraigned
before a justice of the peace this morn
ing, and was held in bonds of $1000, to
appear in court for trial. He was una
ble to furnish a bond and went to jail.
White Miners Escort Their Coolie

San Francisco, Nov. 25.—Half a

years in the Castle mine, near
Copperopolis. Recently some of
the white men in the mine were
