Th« Canadian Authorities Puzzling Over
the Disposition to be Made of Sitting
Bull and His Band.
Arrogance of the Outlawed Ohief Since
Wiping His Feet Upon the American
Sitting Bull and his band have been feast
ing at the expense of the Dominion Govern
ment since the American commission left ;
but the tine has come for the police to make
some sort of settlement in their case. The
difficulty m to find a place for them. If they
were toft at their old camp at Wood moun
tain, or given a roving commission anywhere
near the frontier, there is no doubt they would
soon bring on complications. They feel as
cocky over their snub of the commissioners
as though they had beaten Miles. The police
deterenined from the outset to send them
inorfch, but the question is, whereabouts north ?
Thore is something over two million square
«miles of ope» Territory in this region ; but
«the policy of the Dominion Government has
been to withdraw it from aboriginal sway
and lock up »the Indian reserves. Four hun
dred and tfi$5y thousand square miles of the
tbest land id the country have beensecured by
'treaty, and the savages pushed far back from
'the line of the Canada Pacific railway. In
fact, the whole region east «of the Rocky
'mountains has been thus disposed of. So, to
,put Sitting Bull and his people onto a tract
held by 1 the Government would be to undo,
to some extent, what it has taken seven years
■ of diplomacy to accomplish, while to send
them onto a reservation would be to break
faith'With the tribe already an occupation.
Sitting Bull would be looked upon as an in
trude, in a public sense, for >kis alien band
• hasi-r.o claim or tide to this sod. This ques
tion of the future home of the Sioux, is,
therefore, one of no small difficulty ; but it
• mu3t be settled before the end of the month.
« Col. McLeod is in communication with the
«Department of the Interior on the subject.
Day before yesterday we experienced the

The police scouts report that the fugitive
Nez Perces are suffering terribly from want
of provisions. Water-in-tee-sky, one of
their men, dropped into this «post the other
<lay, and having saved the lit« of the police,
who, venturing out too far on snow-shoes,
became crippled* was treated.cordially. He
. said his peopleware quietly slipping over the
frontier, being«unable to live on this side.
: He described their long race with Gen. How
ard, saying thaUthe latter was hampered by
his wretoked cavalry horses and by ignorant
scouts, who lech him astray. Miles caught
them when they were w-eary and out of
breath, axd Joseph, being sick and in low
spirits söcrendered. Nearly three hundred
üed befass the strrender, but he thinks there
are not over a hundred in Canada now. He
left us after a night's lodging, and started for
the friskier. Stacie of the Xez Perces are
