McLaughlin says something looking toward the breaking up of this craze must be done, and now that cold weather is approaching is the proper time. Such steps as here suggested would leave Sit ting Bull with but a few followers, as all or nearly all would report for enrollment, and thus he would be forced in himself. THE BAD LANDS RENKGADKS. General Roger Hopes to Get Most of Them In—General Mil. * - Report. Washington, Dec. 15. —General Scho field received a telegram from General Miles today, confirming tl}e reports of dissensions among Indians on the Bad Lands, but the reported engagement be tween troops and Indians is believed to be untrue.

Boston, Mass., Dec. 15.— Ex-Assistant Postmaster-General Clarkson, in an in terview on national politics today, said he did not ascribe to big importers an extraordinary large share in the defeat of the Republicans at the recent elec tion. Speaking of the elections bill, Clarkson said he was in favor of it, but there was no assurance that it would pass, as some of the senators who had speculations at stake would let the bill be defeated through delay. On the prospects of financial legislation, Clark eon thought there was a majority in each house in favor of free coinage. He thought a revision of the banking law was needed in favor of the farmer, and said the Farmers' Alliance had come to stay until some modification of the banking system was adopted. Strikes Thnt Fulled. OC! den, Utah, Dee. 15. —The strike in the Union Pacific yards in this city ended in a victory for the company. A full complement of men was at work to day, none of the old hands being reem ployed. It is said Grand Master Swee ney, of the switchman's union, will re voke the charter oi the local body for violation of the constitution. The" Ev anston strike is also a failure. An Increase of Wages Demanded. Mii.waukek, Wis., Dec. 15. — A de mand for an increase of wages by all the locomotive engineers and firemen em ployed on the St. Paul railroad has been made. It is intimated that they will strike in event of refusal to grant the desired increase. It is said the brake men and all other trainmen will ask for a readjustment of the present wages. They Laugh at the Story. TopkkAj Kan., Dec. 15.— The various prominent Kansas Farmers' Alliance men mentioned in dispatches as having been in a plot to disintegrate southern Democracy, by supporting the sub treasury bill at the recent Farmers' Alliance convention, laugh at the story, and say they voted ior the bill because they believed in it. He Out Hi* Man. At 1 o'clock this morning Officer Dor sey found three drunken Irishmen in an alley off First, street, and as they were creating a disturbance by throwing glass bottles about, ordered them to move on. All three obeyed h\a request, but not in the manner in which ho had expected, for they set upon him and proceeded to "do him up." After rolling round for a few minutes Dorsey managed lo get his 'club out, and armed with that weapon he evrnel things up a little. His three aseailants then ran away, but Dorsey gave chase and finally caught one on Second street. The "fellow turned and fought like a wild cat, but the officer Btuck to him, and finally TIIE LOS ANGELES HERALD: TUESDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 16, 1890. landed liini at the police station, where the pair presented a sorry spectacle. Pioth men were deluged with blood, and Dorsey's uniform was in beautifully frayed strips, which floated upon the wind like ribbons. Anothei desperate struggle ensued when Dorsey went to search his man, and it required the com bined efforts of four of "the finest" to hold the prisoner down while this was being done, and to throw him into the "cooler" afterwards. COKNKK'STONK LAID. A Gala Day at San Bernardino—The In sane Asylum Founded. San Bernardino, Dec. 15. —Three long trains, carrying military companies, Knights Templar, state officers, Masons and invited guests, left for the asylum grounds at 2 156 this afternoon. Thous ands of people also went in carriages from this city and all parts of the county, to witness the corner-stone cere monies. It was estimated that the assemblage on the grounds would num ber from eight to ten thousand. Major H. I. Drew, chairman of the asy lum trustees, called the meeting to or der, and introduced Grand Master A. P. Conkling, of Inyo county, who took charge of the ceremonies. Vocal music was furnished by the Masonic quartette from Los Angeles. Governor Waterman made a short address designat ing this as the proudest day of his life. He reviewed the effort made to build two additional asylums —one for Northern California, and one for Southern California. This work was commenced by Governor Stoneman, and finally inaugurated firmly by the last legislature under his administration. The veteran Colonel Stevenson, on his first trip to Southern California for nearly forty years, was introduced, and spoke briefly. Although his voice was feeble, he was greeted with cheers. Marcus I>. Boruck,Governor Waterman's private secretary, made the address of the day. The. hour being late, the exercises were cut short, and lion. William Harris declined to giye his address. Just before dark the trains brought the people back to tbe city, and most of the visitors left for home, the invited guests remaining for the banquet in the evening. On account of illness, Governor-elect Markhain could not be present. Santa Burbara Votes to Close. Santa Bahbaka, Dec. 15. —A popular vote was taken today upon the question of closing saloons at 11 o'clock every night and all day Sunday. Nine hun dred and fifty votes were cast; the ma jority in favor of closing was 371. Graves in the Crinie'a.* Some interesting results were obtained from the archaeological explorations car ried ou in the Crimea during last sum mer. Professor Vesselovski found paint ed human bones in two graves—six skel etons in one grave and one in another. The well known archaeologist Professor Grempler, of Breslau, who was present last year at the congress of archaeolo gists at Moscow, is of opinion that these graves belonged to the original inhabi tants! of tho Crimea, tho Cimmerians of Herodotus. It was a usage with them to lay their dead on elevated spots so that the birds might consume the flesh. When quite bleached they painted the skeletons with some mineral pigment. Graves containing such painted skeletons have been found in Central Asia, but only in a few instances. Only three such graves had been previously found in the Crimea. Professor Grempler proposes to take the skeletons with him to Paris, and exhibit them at tho congress of an thropologists to bo held there during the autumn. —Boston Transcript. Damage* for a Delayed Message. The state supreme court of North Carolina has confirmed the action of the lower court which awarded to J. T. Young, of Craven county. N. C, $10,000 damages against the Western Union Telegraph company. It is represented that last year "Young's wife was taken very ill in Columbia, S. C. Mr. Young was at New Berne, N. C, and his wife telegraphed him that sho was sick, and requested him to come to her at once. He did not get tho message until si % days later, and in the meantime Mrs. Young died and was buried, Young not knowing of either fact till all was over." —Philadelphia Ledger. A Fascinating Painting. A Russian artist, Nicolui, has set Ber lin arrog by exhibiting his painting of Christ before Pilate. It is said to be horribly fascinating, and tho salon where it is displayed is crowded to suffocation. Critics agree that it is vastly inferior to Mnnkacsy'n painting of the same title, so far as art is concerned, but they ad mit that it haR power.—Kate Field's Washington. As the neck dressings grow larger, richer, showier in texture and more ver satile in form, the scarf pins, as if regu lated by a temporizing hand, become more chastely simple in design. A plain old gold ball of the circumference of a five cent silver piece, studded with tur quoise—ii revived pattern—is very dis tingue. Pipes are coming into fashion again, but only in offices und out of sight of the public. Possibly the time will come when a man will feel justified in pro ducing a pipe in the smoking compart ment of a car here, or in stalking along the street with one, after the fashion of the young clerks iv England. The French minister of war lately of fered a prize for tho swiftest bird in a flight from Perignenx to Paris, 810 miles. There were 2.740 entries, and the winner did the distance/ in seven hours and thirty-four minutes. The greatest height in the atmosphere at which the sound of cannon has been heard was £0,000 feet, when Mr. Qlaisher at that height over Birmingham heard the firing of the gunsJ»eing proved there. THE SCHOOL BOARD. Several of the Members-Elect at Last Night's Session. The board of education met in special session last night, President Pomeroy in the chair and all the members present. Messrs. Martin Marsh, Dr. Kierulff, A. C. Shafer, 11. C. Witmer and Dr. Boal were present, and were invited by the president to take seats inside the railing. Ex-Secretary Cox was also present and occupied a scat with Presi dent Pomeroy. The finance committee reported favor ably on bills amounting to $0,124.18, which were approved. The teachers' salaries amounting to $15,837.25, and janitors' amounting to $1,080.25, were also approved. In accordance with the recommenda tion of the teacher's committee, the resignations of Miss Jennie McCarthy and Olga Doree and S. Riley were ac cepted. Misses Rosalie Layard, E. Mc- Cleane, Alice Barraclough, M. S. Clark, Helen Sullivan and Gertrude Clough were elected teachers. The classification committee recom mended, and it was ordered, that Miss C. C. Vivian be transferred to the Cas telar-street school. Miss A. Root to the fifth, grade of the Amelia-street school, M. Brodley to the first grade of the Amelia-street school, V. A. Olmstead to principal of the Sand-street school. I. E. Little was elected principal of the Pine-street school. The board then took a recess of ten minutes, to give the new members a chance to talk matters over with the old members. The finance committee reported that the board is about $20,000 in debt. There is now about $30,000 due the de partment from the council, and Mr. Ellis suggested that each member of the board see the councilman in his ward, and see if the council cannot be induced to turn the money over or loan it to the school department. Mr. Ellis read a report from the teach ers' committee, in which it is stated that the letter published in the Herald some time ago, purporting to have been signed by Charles L. Innis, one of the principals, had been investigated and the committee find it to be a forgery. The letter contained serious charges against the superintendent of schools. A motion to recommend the council to accept the high school building was made, and quite a heated debate fol lowed, as the building committee was divided on account of defects in the tower, which is so constructed as to ad mit rainwater and injure the building. The motion was carried subject to the condition that the tower be remodeled so that it will not leak. The building committee was instructed to see that these changes are made. Adjourned until the 20th inst. A Flattering Tribute. The subjoined letter from an heroic army officer, orator, poet and banker, of the old home of General Shields, at Knoxville, Term., is one of the countless testimonials to the great value and happy influence of the Annual Herald : General J. H. Shields, La Crescents, Cal.; My Vkry Dkar Sir: You again place me under obligations to you by sending me an illustrated copy of the Los An geles Hkrald, .vhich is by far the best illustrated paper I have ever seen piinted west of the Rockies or south of Mason and Dixon's line. It is certainly a cleverly gotten up sheet, of which all California should feel proud, and were it not for my being rooted to this place by ties of realty that cannot well be broken, I think I might be persuaded to try my fortune among the orange groves of the Pacific slope. It certainly is a most delightful country, with an opening future, the like of which no people yet have ever seen. Wm. H. Turley, whom you used to know, begs of me the privilege of reading this copy of the Herald when I am done, but I w ill let him have it only under strict promise to return it soon unharmed. It lacks but one feature to be more prized, and that is, I would like such a copy in book form, so as to be enabled to preserve it better. I am surprised at the magnitude of Los Angeles' size and wealth. With my best wishes, General, for your welfare, I am truly yours, J. B. McCallom.
