MONDAY -JANUARY IN FRIGHTFUL PERIL. General Miles Thinks the Greatest Battle of Indian History is at Hand and May be Fought Today. The Situation at Pine Ridge Agency Proves to be Yery Alarming, but the Troops are Prepared. THE IKDUN WAR. Strong Probabilities of a Great Battle Soon. Omaha, Jan. 6. The Bee'g corres pondent at Pine Eidge telegraphed that all is one long continued round of excite ment- here and an attack from the Indians is momentarily expected. As to the situation here, considered in its entirety, indications are that the greatest battle in Indian history is almost at hand.. The appearance of every scout adds new and strong support to these indica tions that were only emphasized by- the bloody affair on Wounded Knee. General Miles believes exactly this and has said some strong words : "With out desiring to make the situation a particle darker than it really is, for God knows the truth is bad enough, every thing constrains me to say that the dan ger in which the Pine Ridge agencies and the white populace stand at this point and must remain until the crisis is all over.is one of most fearful peril that can well be imagined, and I say this not for a moment forgetting and knowing perfectly just what military protection we have here." Since Gen. Miles arrived he has re ceived the most urgent admonition from the administration to avoid further bloodshed. Further bloodshed cannot be avoided. . Col. For'sythe has Been Relieved. Washington, Jan. 5. The report of the relief of Col. Forsythe of the com mand of the seventh cavalry by General Miles is confirmed at the war depart ment to-day. The Fight is On. , Omaha, Jan. 5. A special from Eush- ville says : "Heavy cannonading is go ingon north, of there this morning but news of the battle is not yet received. - The Omaha guards who volunteered their services have been ordered to hold themselves ready to move to the front. Hay Cause M ore Trouble. Orders telegraphed from military headquarters to Captain Woods of the 15th cavalry to disarm Indians in the Cheyenne and Araphoe country created the greatest anxiety among settlers of Oklahoma and on the borders of Texas. The Indians are peacable enough and the taking away of their arms will it is feared have the effect of raising a spirit of resistance whjch is now dormant. THEY UNDERSTAND BLAINE. Comments of the London Papers on the Position Blaine Assmes. -" London, Jan. o. The Pall Mall Ga zette says: "Case for-arbitration in the Behring eea dispute is so clear and Lord Salisbury's offer so ample and the feeling that America fovors arbitration is so general and strong it seems neces sary to look for Blaine's motives for his warlike attitude elsewhere than in the merits"1 of the case. It is clear that Blaine speaks not for the nation, but for his party. That he means io bluff and plays to the anti-English galley." Comments of the St. James Gazette. The St. James Gazette says : "There is no reason for anticipating a rupture as Blaine's political party is at low water mark and he resorts to the old devices of "twisting the British lions tail." ' Congressional Proceedings. Washinoton, Jan. "5. In the. senate to-day the committee on - priviliges and elections recommended the' Dubois credentials be placed on file and it was so ordered.

Meek, of the Fort Worth and Colo rado division, has resigned, to embark in an enterprise of some kind in New Mexico, in which he is interested with J. S. Clarkson, late assistant postmaster general. His successor has not yet been selected. It has beeji officially given out that the Union Pacific magnates have under consideration the advisibility of the Adams system of the maintainence of a general manager and a full force of general officers for each of the five grand divisions of the system, and the position of general manager will be abolished and the management placed in the hands of a general superintendent of each division. It is not, of course, known who will be made superintend ents of the various divisions, and the chances are that no appointments will be made for several weeks yet. It has not been announced yet how much of a reduction in the force the new change will make. THE PUGILISTIC BATTLE. An Immense Crowd AnticipatedSeconds of the Two Pugilists. New Orleans, Jan. 3. Interest in the coming Dempsey-Fitzsimmons fight is becoming intense, and indications are that the largest crowd that ever atten ded a mill in this city will be present at Olympic Club rooms on the night of the fight. The contest committee of the club are doing everything in their power to make the patrons of the club com fortable, and no expense is being spared to make the approaching battle the best managed affair of the kind ever reported in the annals of pugilism. A referee will be chosen a couple of days before the tight, and he will be a prominent club member. From all reports, Dem psey and Fitzsimmons are doing nicely, and the latter refers to the fight with an air of confidence that would terrorise a less game and experienced man than the Nonpareil. Much money has al ready been wagered on the result, with Dempsey allways the favorite. Jack McAuliffe, champion light-weight, and Denny Costigan will second Dempsey, while Jimmy Carroll, the well-known light-weight, Doc McConnell and " John Griffin, the Massachusetts feather weight, will do the honors for Fitz simmons.

The Pacific Coast Steamship Company's steamer Queen was towed over to Sausalito to day, where she is to lay up until busi ness between here and Puget sound ports increases. The Queen has been engaged in the run between this city and Victoria and way ports, but was taken off some months ago, owing to the small amount of freight that is being carried to and from this city. She made her last trip to the sound about a month ago, when she took the City of Pueblo's place for one trip, owing to the latter vessel being seized by creditors. The Pacific Coast Steamship company people say they never knew trade between here and the Sound to be so dull. . Incorporation of Five Companies. San Fbancisco, Jan. 3.
