Associated Press Dispatches.
Rapid City, S. D., Dec. 10. —Four
hundred men of the Seventeenth infan
try started today for General Can's
camp, at Rapid creek and Cheyenne
river. General Miles now has concen
trated there about 1200 men with artil
lery. There is a large encampment of
hostile Indians in the grass basin of the
Bad Lands, about ten miles from Carr's
camp, and the Indians have been mak
ing raids on the ranches from there.
Troops are being dispatched to guard
every pass and outlet, and the cavalry
is scouting about to intercept Sitting
Bull's followers, who are supposed to be
heading for that point. The indications
are that General Miles proposes holding
the Indians in the basin until ready to
make a movement into the Bad Lands,
simultaneously with General Brooke's
forces. As the troops are disposed of
now, it appears that the escape of the
hostiles is impossible.
Omaha, Dec. 10. —A special from
Camp Carr, on the Cheyenne river,
says: John Farnham, a scout, was today
placed under arrest. Farnham is sus
pected of giving information concerning
the movements of the troops, to the
hostiles. He is a squaw man. The
troops are ready for movement as soon
as orders are received, and will have no
difficulty in penetrating to the Indian
stronghold. Several easy routes have
been found in and out of the so called
impregnable stronghold.
GENERAL CABR'S CAMP.
Captain Stanton's Command Has n Skir
mish With Redskins.
Denver, Dec. 10.—A News special re
ceived early this morning from the camp
on the Cheyenne river, by courier to
Rapid City, says :
From twenty to thirty ranchers rode
into the camp today. All agree that the
Indians are augmenting their forces anil
growing bolder hourly. It was ascer
tained early this morning that the de
serted ranch house and outlying build
ings of a man named Wilson, were
burned to the ground last night, having
first been looted. Hon. M. H. Day.
aide de camp to Governor Mellette, re
ported that besides seventy tepees be
tween Battle and Spring creeks, he saw
another large band further down the
Chejenne river. He thinks they num
ber at least 300, and he estimates that
they had one thousand head of ponies
and" a large number of cattle With them,
most of which were stolen.
Early this morning General Carr sent
Captain Stanton, of the Sixth cavalry,
with his troop, numbering about sixty
men, to scout and look around for In
dians in the Bad Lands. Three helio
graph stations have been established.
A soldier from the farthest heliograph
station reported to General Carr that
Captain Stanton was in an engagement
with Indians. General Carr gave orders
for Lieutenant Scott and Troop 1) to go
to his assistance. Later Captain Staunton
and other troops returned. It was
learned that he had a skirmish with a
large party of Indians, heading lor the
Bad Lands. Shots were exchanged in
a quite lively nwiner for some time,
when the Indians esc.-ned to the Bad
Lands. Captain Stanton followed them
for some time, but, fearing an ambush,
withdrew his troop and returned to
camp.
SITTING BULL'S BAND.
An Engagement with a Portion of Them
Reported.
Pierre, S. D., Dec. 10. —George Mor
ris, a storekeeper at Cheyenne City,
near the mouth of Cherry creek, ar
rived here, says the entire white popu
lation, twenty families, and a number of
friendly Indians, have left there, some
going to Fort Bennett, some to Oak
creek, and others to Pierre. He says
just before leaving there, night before
last, twenty Indians from Sitting Bull's
band arrived and held a big council with
the Cherry creek Indians, to see whether
they should fight or not, and they were
joined after the council by over 150
Cherokees, all of whom started for the
Bad Lands. Morris says during the
time the refugees were getting away to
the Bad Lands sharp firing was heard
between the Indian police and the hos
tiles ; that a battle was no doubt fought,
but as the settlers made haste to retire
to the towns, they can give no further
particulars. As troops were ordered to
that point yesterday, it is believed the
hostiles were routed and captured.
Morris says Sitting Bull's Indians are
well armed and determined to avenge
Sitting Bull's death.
LOYAL, RED CLOUD.
He Is the White Man's Friend, but Wants
More Itatlons.
Washington, Dec. 19. —Dr. Bland,
of the Indian Defense association, has
received a long letter from the Indian
chief, Red Cloud, at Pine Ridge agency,
under date of December 10th. Red
Cloud says he is a constant friend of the
whites, and his people have no intention
of going on the warpath. He never had
anything to do with the ghost dance.
He complains of the government rations
being cut down more and more every *
year. The past two seasons were-so dry
that the Indians could raise little, and
the rations were so scant that they had
to kill their own cattle to avoid starva
tion. Many became sick from the want
of the proper quantity of food, and 217
have died from starvation since fall, of
last year.
Skirmishes at Daly's Ranch.

dians at Daly's ranch and other points,
are false. There have been three
skirmishes between Colonel M. 11.
Daly's command of settlers and cow
boys, numbering fifty men ; the last one,
on Tuesday, was a hot one. The Indians
attempted to burn the hay stacks at
Daly's ranch, but were driven off by
Colonel Daly and ten men. A band of
150 hostiles are moving westward, fifty
miles north of here, in Butte county.
Eighty men of the Ninth cavalry, and
sixty Cheyenne scouts have been sent
after them.
BULL HEAD BURIED.
His Squaw Walks Eighty Miles to See
Him Die.
Fort Yates, N. D., Dec. 10.—Bull
Head's body was buried today with mil
itary honors. His squaw, who was up
on the Cannon Ball river when she
heard of the fight, started at once ior
Fort Yates and walked eighty miles
without rest. She reached her husband
just before his death, and fell in a faint
when admitted to the room. More than
forty of Sitting Bull's followers have re
ported to the agent, and are now in
cam;> close by. The remainder are re
ported to he south of the reservation,
near the Moreau river.
The Creeks Not Cra»!y.
Kansas City, Dec. 10.—A Guthrie
dispatch says a number of Creek In
dians asserted today that their people
had not any sympathy with the Mes
siah craze. Although Sitting Bull had
sent couriers to all the different tribes
to incite an uprising, they had been suc
cessful only with the uncivilized In
dians.
Kickapoos Dancing.
Kansas City, Dec. 10.—A special dis
patch says one thousand Kiekapoo and
other warriors are dancing near the
eastern line of Oklahoma. Troops are
watching them. The report lacks con
firmation.
FROM FAR CATHAY.
LATEST ADVICES FROM CHINA
AND JAPAN.
Over Kight Hundred Lives Lost by a
Powder Explosion — Opening of the
First Japanese Diet.
San Francisco, Dec. 10.—The steam
ship Belgic arrived this morning, bring
ing Chinese advices to November 20th,
and Japanese advices to December 3d.
The deaths resulting from the powder
explosion at Tai I'ing were more than at
first estimated, it being stated that,
eight hundred coffins were taken out of
the city, and yet there were not enough
to bury all the dead. A Chinaman
lighting a pipe while repairing the roof
of the powder mill is said to have
caused the catastrophe.
The British barkentine Guiding Star
was driven ashore in Sunda straits on
the 20th ultimo, and it will be a total
wreck. The crew were saved.
Tseng Kno Cliuan, viceroy at Nan
king, and uncle of the late Marquis
Tseng, is dead.
A number of villagers belonging to the
Feng district, near Siiang Hai, in March
1880, attacked and killed fourteen sol
diers belonging to the preventive ser
vice, who had seized a lot of salt be
lieved to have been smuggled. The vil
lagers under misapprehension took the
officers for thieves, and on discovering
their mistake, burned the senseless
bodies to prevent the disclosure of
the occurrence. The facts coming to
the attention of the authorities,
they have now decreed that the ring
leader shall he decapitated and his head
exposed at the scene of the crime. As
he has already committed suicide by
drowning, the corpse will be exhumed
and dismembered. Four others were
sentenced to be strangled, but of these
two are dead, four others are sentenced
to a hundred blows each and perpetual
banishment.
The town of Yokosuka, Japan, was
almost entirely destroyed by fire, No
vember 30th. Three persons were
burned to death, and eight seriously in
jured.
The opening of the diet, the first con
stitutional legislative body ever assem
bled in Japan, took place Saturday, No
vember 29th. All traffic had been sus
pended in the capital, and the day was
given up to celebrating. The emperor
and his cortege -were greeted on their
arrival at the legislative hall with a
salute of 101 guns. The ceremonies were
brief, the emperor reading a short ad
dress in which he expressed the hope
that all institutions relating to the
internal administration of the empire
might be continued andextended inorder
to obtain good results from the working
of the constitution, and thereby mani
fest in the future, at home and abroad,
the glory of the empire, and the loyal
and enterprising character of the Japan
ese people. The emperor held it essen
tial that the military and naval defences
of the country be perfected and made an
object of gradual attainment.
Mr. Nakashima Nobuyuke and Mr.
Tauda Mamichi, who received the high
est honors for the offices in question,
were appointed by the emperor to the
presidency and vice-presidency of the
house of representatives. The president
belongs to the constitutional radical
party, and the vice-president to the
Daiscikai party. The Liberals made no
special effort to elect their candidate,
but watched the actions of the other
parties. The Conservatives voted witli
the Radicals.
The only disturbance, which took
place at the opening of the diet, was an
attack made by the Soshi, or students,
on the Russian legation. Madame
Schevitch, wife of the Rus
sian minister, and the ladies of
the legation, were struck by stones
thrown by the Soshi, who attempted to
force their way into the legation, but
were repelled by the attendants, who
retaliated with a shower of tiles. The
Hoshi were repulsed and some twenty in
jured. A number of employees of the
legation were also hurt. Ail the win
dows of the building were smashed.
The cause of the attack is said to be the
fact that the emperor bowed to the
ladies of thu legation in passing.

MUD OR LIME.
Which Was It Got In Par-
nell's Eyes.
His Enemies Say His Injuries
Are Feigned.
A Considerable Controversy Going
On On This Point.
Canon Lee and Archbishop Walsh Deny
Assertions Made by United
Ireland.
Associated Press Dispatches.
Dublin, Dec. 19.—Darnell and his col
leagues drove to Johnstown today. Red
mond, alluding to the denials that lime
was thrown, declared that two doctors
staked their reputation on the fact that
it was lime they found in Darnell's eyes.
Canon Cody asserts that it was mud
that was thrown into Parnell's face and
eyes, and not lime as claimed.
London, Dec. 19. —A dispatch received
in this city from Michael Davitt, states
that the injuries sustained by Parnell at
Castle Comer, were inflicted by women
and girls who pelted him with flour and
mud. The story that lime was thrown
in his face and eyes, the dispatch says,
is Parnell's latest disgusting dodge to
evoke sympathy and divert the people's
mind from the real issue.
The Kilkenny correspondent Jof the
Telegraph declares that he tasted some
of the matter thrown at Parnell, and
found the substance gritty and acrid,
and it was undoubtedly collected from
the small lime kilns near Castle Comer.
Dublin, Dec. 19. —McCarthy addressed j
! a meeting at Kilkenny today, as also did j
| Sexton. The latter deeply regretted the
violence done to Parnell.
j At Sligo today Lalor, the leader of a
band of Moonlighters, was sentenced to !
penal servitude for life. Other prisoners !
were sentenced to various terms of im
prisonment, ranging from one to ten
years.
The branch of the National league
on the Island of Jersey has adopted a
resolution against Parnell.
Canon Lee, dean of the Dublin chap
ter, writes along letter denying that the
chapter met in Dublin, as asserted by j
Parnell, and adds that he is convinced j
that Ireland should act in accord with I
the manifesto of the hierarchy.
Pttrnell's character as revealed m
the divorce court, Lee says, speaks
for itself, and since the verdict he has
given further abundant proof of his un-
I fitness for the leadership of the Irish j
j party. Lee proceeds at much length to :
state his opinion, that in view of the
excited state of pnblic feeling, it is in- j
expedient for the clergy to mix up with
violent meetings. He is no less
clear y of the opinion that *he
clergy has a duty to perform in im
pressing on the people on every suitable
occasion, that despite his many pre
cious services, they find themselves
forced to the conclusion that they must
regard Parnell as a fallen leader, no
longer worthy of the people's confidence.
London, Dec. 10.—Archbishop Walsh
has telegraphed the London papers that
the account of the meeting of the chap- )
ter of Dublin, published yesterday by
United Ireland, is a shameful fabrica
tion. The article declared that the
chapter adopted a resolution urging the
ecclesiastical authorities to abstain from
takiug any action in the Parnell matter.
New York, Dec. 19.—Two thousand
Irish Americans attended a meeting at
Cooper Union tonight, called by the
municipal council of the Irish National
league Michael Breslin presided.
Wanhope Lynn, Mrs. Margaret Moore
and others spoke. Resolutions of confi
dence in Parnell were adopted and
cabled to him. Great enthusiasm pre
vailed. .
DOCTOR'S DISAGREE
As to Whether Eyraud's Mistress Was
Hypnotized or Not.
' Pabis, Dec. 19.—1n the Eyraud trial
today, Dr. Liegeoia, head of the medical
faculty of the college of Nancy, and a
believer in hypnotization, explained his
ideas on the subject, and expressed sur
prise that he had not been allowed to
see Mile. Bompard, for the purpose of
ascertaining to what degree she was sus
ceptible to hypnotic influence. The
prisoner ought again to be put
to sleep by mesmerism in order to
revive her recollection of facts occurring
at the moment of her confession
of the crime, according to the indict
ment. Eyraud had not been able to put
Mile. Bompard asleep, yet she had been
amenable to the hypnotic influence of
Garanger, having revealed the crime to
him while hypnotized. For his
(Liegeois's) part, if he were the judge,
hearing in mind previous miscarriages
of justice, he would rather cut off his
hand than pronounce sentence upon
Mile. Bompard.
When the sensation which this declar
ation caused had subsided, theprocureur

New York, Dec. 19.—The Herald
I prints a sensational Ottawa special this
; morning, saying: Confidential advices
t from Washington strongly Jconlirm the
j press utterances that point to a crisis
next season in the fur-seal controversy.
Alter the rejection by Piesident Harri
son of the latest British proposal for ar
bitration, the imperial government will

j Strong squadmn of war vessels
will be assembled at Esquimau,
: and vessels of a smaller class
will be sent to Bering sea
|to protect from seizure or removal Brit
! ish vessels. The naval force to enter
j Bering sea will be large enough to in
duce the American government to re
frain from interference with sealing
vessels. Unless the president really de
sires to bring the crisis that the Ameri
can press is predicting, our authorities
look for no trouble, and for no molesta
tion on Canadian seal vessels next sum

A SOLDIER'S FUNERAL.
General Terry's Remains Laid to Rest
;\V Ith Simple Ceremonials.
New Haven, Conn., Dec. 19. —The re
mains of Major-General Terry were
placed in their last resting place thisafter-
I noon. At 1 o'clock services were held
at the home of the deceased, for mem
bers of the family only. The remains
were then taken to the United church,
and until 2 o'clock the public were al
j lowed to gaze upon the face of the de
i ceased. Then services were held, during
which minute guns were fired, and the
hell in the city hall tolled. The remains
were interred in the Grove-street ceme
tery. The pall-bearers were eight ser
geants fron the Second regiment. The
honorary pall-bearers were ex-Governors
Hanison and Ingersoll, Lieutenant-Gov
ernor Mervin, Judge Hollister, F. Fran
i i i Wayland, Henry A. Blake and Arthur
D. Osborne.
In his address at the funeral, Rev. Dr.
Munger, referring to the fact that the
deceased soldier had been somewhat
criticized in connection with the Custer
massacre,- said he was authorized now
to speak without reserve that Custer's
fatal move was in direct violation
of the written and verbal orders of
General Terry. When his rashness and
disobedience ended in the total destruc
tion of his command, General Terry
withheld the fact of his disobedience,
and suffered an imputation, hurtful to
his reputation, rather than subject a
brave but indiscreet subordinate's mem
ory to the charge of disobedience. The
fame of a dead comrade was dearer to
him than his own, even though that
fame had been forfeited.
