John^Hurlinson, a Rosebud rancher, a c ousin^of the missing man. then organised a^posse of men and started for Tongue^river to begin a search. (HiSunday. May :':). the posse met I^at the place Hoover had camped the^night before his disappearance. A line^was formed of Oil men. 200 yards be-^t ween each man. Thirty minutes after i^the line the men started four lifts shots !^were heard, the signal agreed upon If I^the laaly was found or any trace of It.^Two men, detailed to go to a ranch '^after provisions, went to a new sheep '^camp to get mutton, and rode directly^on the lemalns of Hoover. The body^was guarded night and day waiting for^the coroner from Miles City. The Jury's Investigationshowed that he bad 1ii shottwice, breaking his arm. cutting^his rll^s In two. The position of the^body showed he was sitting down when i^killed. The body was lying Hat on the I^bac k, a knee testing on his dead dog.^After he fell backward he was shot a^third time, so close as to burn his^clothes. A bullet going through the^body and breaking the backbone, yyas^dug out g| the ground by a Juror. Two^ponies' tracks were near the body. A^third pony Joined the trail 100 yards^away. The government shells wen- I]^feet from the body. The Jury found a^verdict that John Hoover c ame to his^death front tille grounds Indicted by^Cheyennes. A c ommittee of |] repre^^sentative settlers and stockmen were^named to wait upon the agent, ('apt.^Ccorge W. H.

The^committee met Stouch at the I.ame^Deer agency. Stouch promised that the^demands would he complied with. This^w as Monday. May 24 ' ^i Tuesday, the^2^ith, troops arrived from Kort KooejU.^Tin same day the head men of the^tribe brought In weird that the Chey^^enne PhlllD Badger was one of thfl men^that killed Hoover. The military and^civil authurltlea laith requested per^^mission to captue Badger, but were^refused by Stouch. who stated the force^was not strong enough. Badger was in^plain sight defying anyone to take1 him.^Fifty bucks, well armed, were crazy^tolan excuse to tight the whites. Hear^^ing the Indian threats. Deputy Sheriff^Smith sent a courier notifying the set^^tlers to move all their families to a safe^place. On Friday night every ranch^for 40 miles on the Itosebud was de^^serted. Saturday morning Stomii no-^titled the four deputies and all white^men not government employes to leave^the reservation or be placed under ar^^rest. Smith left for Miles City, leav^^ing Deputy Sin riff Mi Kay in charge^of the body. Fortyinch, well-ai med, are at Brgteg^ranch. 2,~^ miles below Lame Deer. Fam^^ilies II miles below these guards are^camping. The women and children are^roughing it A number of families are^at Kosebud. Forsyth and Sheridan,^Wyo. Sheriff CM OS and Deputy Smith^are expected to-day. when action will^be taken by the civil authorities. The.^settlers are quiet and orderly. They^arc well organized and only want Jus- j^tlce. There have lieen shipped in IJ.flOO^worth or rides and ammunition In the^last three days. Allthe Indians are sullen. Two Moon,^the Cheyenne chief, in conversation^with a Standard reporter to-day said:^I ^Cheyenne will fight. White nun all^I afraid heap.'' Fifty bucks without 4 1^| stitc h of clothing went up ihe Kosebud^yesterday In war paint. Communica^^tions were shut off yesterday. It Is re-^i ported the agent will not allow any one^i to leave. We are camped on the I lose-^I bud miles below the mouth of Ijime j^I I)eer and exiwc t lo move to-day, if Ihe^sheriff arrives. He Is ex pec ted lo re^^turn w ith a warrant for Badger and all^who Interefei. in preventing the ar- '^rest of Ihe murderers. The settlers ex^^pect to fight the .utile tribe. .V^0 well^j armrd bucks. The squaws and pap-^i pooses have all be n moved to River I^, Mission. The bucks., with a few SJMf^^I Hons, are all In war nsint. Therumms that mote men have l^^ii I^i killed have' not lieen substantiated, our^| men are guarding all points.

There aa^^I rumors to-day that the Cheyennes gavl^sent word to the Sioux for all th- it^I fighters to break out anel n.eet them on^I the wsr trait. LaterSheiiff Gihb and his deputes^ha\e reached beto and left the settlers^I lo wait for their orders. They will^| sent |^ai^ers on the agent demanding | toSheridan. Wyo. The set i lei s are^much alarmed owing to no protocMoji^from the troops. A courier left last^night with instructions to Joseoh F.^Crown from Governor Smith, author^^izing him to organize a company of in^^fantry from ilie settlers. Aims and^ammuuicion are expected to arrive on^the next train. County Attornay l'or^^ter receives a telegram from Senator^Carter at Washington, stating that all^ottlces were closed on account of the^holiday. Secretary Itltss being in New^York, but was ex pec ted to give orders^the hrst thing Tuesday morning to have^Ihe soldiers arrest the Italian murder^^ers and turn them over to the sheriff. ItIs expected that PMUp Kaelgci will^refuse to be arrested. He has ac^^knowledged that he killed Hoove r, and^delies th eagent or any one else to try^lo arrest him. Testimonybefore the e.miner's In-^quest shows that Hoover was sitting^down and dlling his pipe when kilbd.^the pipe leeing in one hand and an open^tobacco sack In the other. Two bullet^entered the left Side, going ihrotrgti^hfad.

The place where he was herd^^ing sheep is about five miles from the^reserv at ion.

Mr. Young arrived to-day front^Neate-'s ranc h, with a request from set-^' tiers to the. commanding officer at^Fort Kesigh to furnish troops to pro^^tect the postoflbe at Ashland ami^co-ebbs and to furnish an escort to the^stage. The commander refuse el, ciaim-^i ing be bad no soldiers to spare. Major^Smith, who Is in command, staled that^he had sent sudle |. nt troops to prop i t^I the Indians, claiming thai the trouble^vv as causeel by a row between cattl^^and sheep men. who laid the killinu^to the Indians. As thin Is no trouble^between cuttle and sheeo men in this^e eiunty and never has been, this asser-^\ Hon is absurd.

At this^time Mr. 1'pshavv was agent, ^hut was^relieved by Spec ial Age-lit Caoper. w ho^brought these Indians lo time, demand^ing of the- head chiefs of the tribes that^they surrender the guilty ones. gJJhnV-^ing thcin a stipulated time in which^; to do so. At the expiration of the^time those twei young I mocks refused la^surrender, but rode directly toward a^company of soldiers, tiring their guru^and courting death, and srsrs kill.-a bl^s volley from the soldiers.
