Minneapolis, Doc. 20. —A Tribune special from Pierre, 8. D., says: A ranchman from up Bad river reports that the hitherto peaceable, semi-civil ized tribe of the Two Kettle Sioux have begun a wild ghost dance. Night be fore last some of the bucks, when re turning home, claimed to have seen a white figure on top of a bluff. One of them said it was Sitting Bull. The al leged phantom motioned them to fol low, and glided from hill to hill in the diicction of the Bad Lands. The ranch man says the Indians accepted this as proof that Sitting Bull is tho Messiah, and that he was beckoning them to join his followers. The ghost dance is in con sequence of this, and the ranchman says the Indians as far down as Willow creek are affected. If the story is correct, it is a serious affair. Tin; CORDON TIOHTeOdig.

THE WORLD'S FAIR. The President's Proclamation Will He Heady for Issuance Soon. Washington, Dec. 20. —It is learned on the highest authority that there is no truth in the report that the president, before he issues the Columbian world's fair proclamation, will require $3,000,01)0 of the $5,000,000 subscription to be paid in cash to Treasurer Seeberger. It is learned also from the same source that the proclamation will be ready for issu ance very soon, probably next week, and Secretary Butterworth and Director Peck's visit to the white house was for the purpose of laying before the presi dent additional papers bearing upon the validity of the subscriptions to tho fair. These established the absolutely binding character of the subscriptions, and, it is believed, settled all remaining doubts. The bona fide character of the subscrip tions is attested by the fact that under the 20 per cent, call,more than $1,000,000 was paid in, in cash, of the total amount of $6,900,000 subscribed.

WILL NOT DOWN. Ho Says God Told Him to Put His Hands to the Plow, aud no Power Can Drive Him from His Duty. Kilkenny, Dee. 20. —Parnell continues to take an active part in the campaign. Today he delivered an address from the hotel here. He was very positive in his assertion that slate and lime were the substances thrown at him the other day. He declared that he would allow no combination, however powerful, to drive him from his duty to Ireland. He ridiculed McCarthy as a leader, who did not have two ounces of steel in his whole body. rrT ins hands to tub plow. Parnell made another speech this evening. In the course of his remarks he said: "In 1875 God told me to put my hands to the plow, and I obeyed." lie felt certain the day of victory is at hand, and that this is the last bitter struggle before Ireland.

Philadelphia, Dec. 20.—Powderly re turned from Florida today. He said he was not at liberty to speak of the rela tions existing between the Knights and Alliance. The organizations would probably act in accord with each other. The words "independent political ac tion," if rightly understood, would set tle the question in the minds of the people that they mean simply that in joining forces they form a platform upon which, as organizations, they stand. There is no necessity to form a new political party, but a po litical movement having a definite ob ject in view. It is upon *hat basis lie proposes to issue a call to all labor lead ers who herald reforms,single tax men, in fact anybody who desires the success of the labor movement, to meet in con vention. The object is to discuss the labor problem in all its aspects, and at tempt to make a platform which shall satisfy all to such an extent that they will work for it.

SUNDAY MORNING, DECEMBER 21, 1890.—TEN PAGES. IN THE OLD WORLD. Koch's Remedy Still the Cur rent Topic. Patients Advised to Keep Away from Berlin. A Crisis Threatened in German Po- litical Affairs. Court Gossip—Emperor V/illiam Not in Financial Straits—lnteresting Items from France. Associated Press Dispatches. Berlin, Dec. 20.—[Copyright, 1890, by the New York Associated Press.] The number of American physicians who have been waiting here trying to get lymph, is rapidly diminishing. Prof. Gerhardt has now treated seventy-nine patients. Four suffering from advanced phthisic died ; three left the hospital much im proved, and twenty-four are progressing favorably. Gerhardt expresses satis faction witli the remedy, and confirms Koch's experience that it is the most useful in the initial stage of tiie disease. Dr. Guttrnan has four cases tbat have been absolutely cured, of pulmonary phthisic, having been taken at an early ■stage. Prof. Leyden reports, of 127 pa tients treated at the charity hospital, the general results are promising, and there has been no mishap in any in stance. In contrast to this the Cologne Gazette records the death of a patient confided to the care of Dr. Libbertz, by Koch, and who received his tirst injec tion from Koch. Prof. Leyden admon ishes the doctors to use the" utmost cau tion, in that the injections affect the heart strongly. All deaths following an injection have been caused by the heart being affected. KOCII CALLS OX riIKLPS. Prof. Koch paid a long visit to the American Minister, Phelps, yesterday. Koch said his decision to henceforth give lymph only to hospitals, was due to the reports of fatal results that followed its use in private practice. He carefully added that he was not personally cog nizant of any death resulting from its effects, but was convinced that the lymph was dangerous, except when used under constant watch by physi cians. The patient, he said, ought to be seen at least every two hours. He declares that it is useless for American doctors to come to Berlin. Lymph will be assigned to American hospitals that are properly vouched for. Sick Ameri cans should stay at home. Berlin is al ready too full of patients. A POLITICAL CRISIS. The dispute over the government's commune bill threatens a serious crisis. The minister of the interior, Herr Forth, finding the majority of the com mittee bent on amendments preserving several feudal privileges which the bill aimed to abolish, conferred with his colleagues, who authorized him to in form the committee that if the landtag supported the amendments, it would be immediately dissolved. A sharp dispute followed, the conservative members of the committee declaring that the government was taking a line ruinous to the aristocracy, which they held w as the backbone of the monarchy. The committee adjourned until Jan uary Ist, and several of the members will consult Bismarck on the crisis, and ask him to appear and lead the opposi tion. The Post (Conservative) warns its party that dissolution on such a question would result in a Liberal ma jority. The Progressists rejoice at the prospects of dissolution, but it is not thought that the Conservatives will risk a general election. COUHT OOBBIP. Prince William, of Nassau, heir to the throne of Luxemburg, and the richest among European princes after the Czarewitch, it iB reported, will he be trothed to Princess Margarethe, sister of the emperor. The marriage would be a step toward the ultimate absorption of Luxemburg by Germany. Though the confinement of the em press was premature, she is recovering rapidly, and the condition of the child is satisfactory. A prompt denial is made of the rumors that the emperor is financially embarrassed through the expenses in curred on his journeys to the European courts. The report that his civil list is to be increased to meet the costs of his journeys is also denied, although the emperor holds that the list is not suffi cient to meet the expenses attendant on the development of the imperial posi tion. FRENCH AFFAIRS. Much Interest Taken In the Next Elec tion of a Pope. PAEIB, Dec. 20.—The tariff committee is hard at work. Nearly every altera tion enhances the duties in the proposed bill. A continuance of the modus vivendi concerning New Foundland has been definitely arranged with England, under the distinct stipulation that the English government shall settle the difficulty during the interval, with or without the assent of the New Foundland parlia ment. The question of_ the suppression of Cardinal Lavigerie's salary,on the ground that he had occupied himself with politics, was discussed today by the senate. The minister of justice de fended the cardinal, and his remarks showed a strong desire for the estab lishment of an entente with the Vati can. The debate was purposely raised to ascertain the state of feeling on the next election of a pope, which appears an early probability. The whole influ ence oi France will be directed to the selection of a cardinal favorable to the republic. The most satisfactory candi dates are: Lavigerie, Zigliara, Raf faele, Monaco, Lavoletta and Gibbons, of America. Gibbons' impartial treat ment of republican countries mates him the favorite candidate of Lavigerie. Successful Dynamite Shells. StbaCUSk. N. V., Pec. 20.-—Dr. .itwtih succeeded today in making a succtuful test of his shell for liring dynamite from an ordinary cannon. The range was about HOO feet.

Bompard, Let Off with Twenty Years Imprisonment at Hard Labor—Last Day of the Trial. lamb, Dec. 20.—1n the Eyraud trial today, the public prosecutor denounced the theories of the hypnotizers, and urged that experiments showed that a person who was hypnotized retained sufficient will power to resist the operator's skill. The theories of the Nancy school were nothing less than the old story of the "evil eye," and were on a par with for tuWteHing with cards. Regarding MUr. Bompard, the public prosecutor said the woman's intellect was not weak, but depraved. Both prisoners were eoually guilty. The evidence showed that everything had been pre pared for the hanging of Gouffe, and it was idle to assert the contrary. He de manded the extreme sentence of the law upon Eyraud. In the case of Mile. Bompard, the jury must consider her age. defective education and her condi tion of life, and decide whether there were extenuating circumstances. M. Decori spoke in behalf of Eyraud who, he contended, was a mere puppet under the evil influence ot Mile. Bom pard. He read a letter written by her to her first lover, to show her character. During the reading, Gabrielle burst into a fit of weeping, and restoratives had to be applied. Decori insisted that she, and not Eyraud, conceived the crime. The original intention of both was not to murder Gouffe, but to,extort money from him. M. Robert spoke in behalf of Mile. Bompard, maintaining that Eyraud had enticed her to participation in the crime. He said that the story of the crime, as recited by her to Dr. Voison while she was under hypnotic influence, was that it had been agreed that she was to throw her girdle about Gouffe's neck, but just as she was about to do so she was seized with a nervous attack which rendered her helpless, and Eyraud, seeing her unable to perform her part, rushed upon the victim and strangled him to death. The jury was out one hour and fifty minutes. Eyraud was convicted and condemned to death. Gabrielle Bom pard was also convicted and sentenced to twenty years' imprisonment at hard labor. Gabrielle, upon hearing her sentence, appeared utterly overcome and fell back into the arms of her doctor. Eyraud showed no emotion, but while being conducted to his cell he incessantly muttered: "Condemned to death at last; but I expected it." Eyraud refused to taste his dinner. He expressed the hope that he would be granted a reprieve. Mile. Bompard is also hopeful that her sentence will be reduced. FOREIGN FLASHES. Louis Eugene Lame, the French painter, is dead. Albert Niederman, a steerage passen ger on the steamship Lahn, arrived at New York, tried to smuggle a diamond worth $5000, but was caught. The Moniteur Beige announces that in consequence of the intervention of the United States minister, Terrill, the quar antine on American cattle has been re duced to five days. The different churches of Canada are preparing to send out over thirty thou sand petitions to be signed and pre sented to parliament, asking a prohib itory law.

Mkmphik, Term., Dec. 20.—0n the Bald Knob railroad, west of here, today, a passenger went into a seven-up game with two passengers. He displayed a roll of bills amounting to $400.
