Wounded Knee Cheek, Neb., Dec
SO. Bright and early were the troops
np yesterday morning. At S oVlock
Uiey were ordered to be in readiness.
At that hour the cavalry and dis
mounted troops were massed about the
Indian village, the Hotchkiss guns over
looking the camp, not fifty yards away.
Colonel Forsythe ordered all the In
dians to come forward away from the
tents. They formed in a half circle and
The dismounted troops were then
thrown around them company K,
Captain Wallace, and company B, Cap
tain Vamum and the order was given
to twenty Indians to go and get their
guns. Upon returning it was seen that
only two guns were brought.
Detachments at once began to search
the village, resulting in thirty-eight
guns being found. ,
About a dozen of the warriors had
been searched when like a flash all of
the rest of them jerked guns from un
der their blankets and began pouring
bullets into the ranks of the soldiers
who a few minutes before had moved
up within almost gun length. Those
Indians who had no guns rushed on the
soldiers, tomahawk in one hand and
scalping knife in the other. It was de
moniacal, a hellishly, horrible rush.
The Indian men, women and children
then ran to the south, the battery firing
rapidly as they ran.
Soon the mounted troops went aftei
them, shooting them down on every
side. The engagement lasted fully an
hour and a half. To the south many
took refuge in a ravine from which it
was difficult to dislodge, them.
Just now it is impossible to state the
exact number of dead Indians. There
are many more than fifty, however,
.killed outright. The soldiers arc shoot
ing the Indians down wherever found,
no quarter being given by any one.
Captain Wallace, K troop, with cav
alry, was killed and Lieutenant Car
lington, of Arctic fame, was shot
through the arm at the elbow. The
troops are still firing from the camp and
pursuing the enemy jp every direction.
To say that it was a most daring feat
for ISO Indians to attack 500 cavalry ex
presses the situation but faintly. It
could only have been insanity that
, prompted such a deed.

Bussellville, Neb., Dec, SO. When

Brooke to General Miles. The first is
ai follows: "Whiteside had four troops

Forsythe reached him with four more
troops last night. At 8:30 this morning
while disarming tho Indians the fight
commenced. I think very few Innians

matter in hand as soon as all are in po
sition. There was no precaution omit

of Wounded Knee creek."

ings. Telegrams of congratulation and,
many presents arrived early in the day
from all parts of Great Britain. Sever
al congratulatory cable messages wero

Mr. Gladstone drove in an open cars,
riagc to a spotontside the chief entrance
ta Uawarden castle, where a memorial
fountain was unvailed. The fountain
was erected by the residents of Ua
warden irrespective of politics. The
fountain is twenty-two feet high and
bears an inscription to the effect
that it was erected by the parishioners

golden wedding of William Ewart
Gladstone to Catherine Gladstone on

A SAD CHRISTMAS.
The Wrrek of a Ship and Crew Bad News
For Four Households.
Laurel, DeL, Dec 30. Ten days ago
Captain Henry Whetley, with a crew
Consisting of his son and three sailors,
(eft Salisbury, a point ten miles below
ere, on the fast-alling schooner Mary
Ellen, laden with lumber for Baltimore.
It was the intention of the sailors to re
turn and spend the holidays with their
families, but they now occupy watery
graves, while their families, instead of
the greeting of a merry Christmas from
beloved fathers and husbands, are
draped in morning and four homes are
deprived of maintenance and twelve
little children are fatherless. While
fears for the safety of the crew
have been entertained for a
week past, not until Tester-,
day was positive evidence of their fate
received. The schooner was found float
ing bottom upward, and the hats and
coats belonging to the unfortunates
were picked up. Captain White, the
owner of the vessel, is unable to give
any account of the disaster or the cir
cumstances attending it. His version
ef the affair is that the boat was cut ia
two by some unknown steamer. This
s the second, boat Captain White has
lost this year.

Tofexa, Kan., Dec 38. The commit.
iee appointed at the hut session of the
Legislature to revise and codify the ex
isting laws of Kansas has completed its
labors and has made its report to Got
The eommittee has thoroughly re
vised all laws relating to public institu
tions, abolished and combined the vari
ous boards in charge of the edacatkmal
and eleemosynary institutions, made
sweeping reductions in the laws gov
erning the State printing, provided for
a more strict accounting of the publio
moneys, and in short revolutionized the
The committee consisted of Senator!
F. P. Harkness, of Clay; T. B. Murdoch,
of Butler; C. II. Kimball, of Labette; M.
C. Kelley, of Crawford, and Joel Moody,
The first meeting was held January
1800, since which time one or more
members of the committee have been
steadily at work.
A bill creating a State board of pub
lic works has been proposed, to consist
of three persons to be appointed by the
Governor with the advice and consent
of the Senate, to superintend all publio
improvements. This board corresponds
to similar boards in municipal corpora
tions and necessitates the repeal of tho
present law providing for the State
House Commissioners. Two of its mem
bers must be experienced mechanics
In regard to the public printing, the
committee found that the prices paid
were too high and ordered important re
ductions. The great saving to the State
will be in the amount or volume of
printing to be done in the future. Pub
lic documents will be set "solid" in the
future instead of "leaded," and the
width of the printed matter on the ses
sion laws is made greater. Provision
is made for enrolling and engrossing
all bills by printing them. ThiswiUdo
away with the small army of engross
ing clerks necessary for each Legisla
ture, which cost the State last session
The committee declares that the laws
governing the Agricultural College and
the State Normal School arc vague, in
definite and uncertain, and wholly inad
eqate for the government of these insti
tutions. Simplification is recommended.
A most remarkable feature of the re
port is a bill combining the State Li
brary and the Historical Society. The
report declares that many books aro
duplicated and that hundreds of charts,
maps, etc, are duplicated and that two
libraries have created jealousies and un
wholesome rivalries, resulting in ex
travagance In the application of moneys.
The two libraries will be consolidated
into the State Library.
The most sweeping change and the
one which will prove the most popular,
is the bill providing for public school
text books. The bill provides for tho
text book plan the same as Is now on
trial by Minnesota and Indiana. Tho
-committee submits seven reasons for
this change, 'claiming that it will not
cost the State more than one-third as
much as the old system, and will give
to the children of the poor and
the laboring people the necessary books
without any cost whatever to them; it
brings the theory of free schools into
practical operation. The committee es
timates that the present plan costs S3 a
year for each pupil, and that the pro
posed plan will cost not to exceed 50
For State charitable and reform in
stitutions one State board, to be known
as "The Board of Trustees of Charitable
Institutions," has been provided.
A cutting down of expenses in the
State penitentiary is recommended.
A bill providing for the election of
the Board of Railroad Commissioners
by a direct vote of the people is sub
mitted, and it is proposed to appoint a
State agent at Washing every four years
instead of giving him a life position.
The Department of Agriculture is
completely revised, and its secretary ia
the future is to be elected by the people,
the same as any other State officer. His
duties arc enlarged so that he must per
form all the duties and offices of the
commissioner of forestry aad silk cul
ture. The bill regulating the fees and sal
aries of county officials makes sweeping;
reductions along the line
The bill providing for the re-apportionment
of the State for .judicial pur
poses reduces the number of districts
from thirty-five to twenty-five and saves
935,000 annually in the salaries of judges
A large number of boards are abolished
in a bill which provides that the pro
fessor of veterinary science at the Ag
ricultural College shall perform the da-
ties of the State veterinarians; the pro
fessor of sociology at the university
snail perform the duties of the coi
sioner of labor statistics; the professor of

Washington, Dec 28. Captain James
Carroll, of Sitka, Alaska, chosen by the
Territorial convention held at Juneau
in October last to represent the Terri
tory as a delegate in Congress, provided
that body should sec fit to grant it the
right of representation, has arrived and
talks freely. The country, he said, un

Congress, but if that body denied it to
the people there were other things
which it should grant aa a. matter of
simple justice to relieve the people of
grievances which were- fast growing in
