CHzcAoo, Feb. 11.-tf the story told by
the agents of the national treasury de- g
portment now in this city is true, one of n
the most diabolical of dynamite plots, F
involving great lose of life and property, V
has been discovered anl itsoconsummatton 8
prevented just on the eve of putting it
Anto effect. The Western Distillers and h
Cattle Feeders' Assiociation, better known a
as a whisky trust, is a corporation with a
capital stock of $85,000,000, and controls
the price of high wines throughout the a
country, as it controls all of the distil
leries, with two or three exceptions. The I
most important distillery outside of the I
combination is that of H. H. Shufteldt,
in this city, and it was againt this con
cern the plot was arranged. The ex
posure of the conspiracy occurred
this morning. George J. Gibbon, of
Peoria, IlII., arrived here at 6 o'clock 8
and on complaint of Solicitur-General a
Hart of the treasury deportment, who a
came here from Washington for that a
purpose, wao arrested as he alighted from 1
his carriage at the door of the Grand I
i Pacific hotel and hurried across the street
into the government building where he t
was locked up. The arrest was made as
quietly as possible and the fact was not ,
made public till some hours afterward.
The charge laid at Gibson's door is that t
he outered the government gauger, T. B. I
Dewar, who is on duty at Shufeldt's dis
tillery, a bribe to blow uip the distillery I
with dynamite. Solicitor Hart tells the I
I story of the plea as follows:
BSome months ago, the Washington de- I
partment were assured that thiags were
set just straight rum the fact that the
trust had tried sheli best to have a cer
coin man apisointed Inspector of the do
psetmeat for this ciistridt. We set a
watch. Boon T. S. Demsr was communi

up a coareolosndence with him. We have

in consultstion with the departmest,

He offered D, mar $10,000 and then in
creased the offer to $25,000 to blow up
the concern. Gibeon stated he had a
dynamite machine that could be located
r just outside us one of the large tanks;
,t that in a few momeate after it was placed
it would exolode.. There would be pl" n

WASHINiTON, Feb. i1.-The Sioux
Indian conference was concluded
today, and the Indians will to
morrow or Friday atort for home, going
by the way of Philadelphia and Carlisle.
The feature of today's meeting was the
story Af the fight at Wounded Knee, I
which was told by Turning Hawk and a
American Horse. Turning Hawk said:
When our people who had been scored
away were returning to Pine Ridge and
when they had almost reached the
agency they were met by the soldiers and
surrounded, and finally takento Wounded
Knee creek, and there at a given time
their guns were demanded, anai when
they had delivered them up the men were
separated from their families, from their .
tepees and taken to a certain spot, their
guns having been given up. When the I
guns were thus taken and the men thus
separated, there was a crazy man-a
young man of very bad influence, and in I
fact, a nobody, among a buanh of the In.
dians, who fired his gun, and of course
the firing of a gun must have been the t
breakhig of a military rule of some sort, t
because immediatelythesoldiers returned I
the fire, and indiscriminate killing tot- I

affairs here Interrupted to ask: "Did I
the man fre at the soldiers, or did he I
simply shoot in the air?"
Spotted Horse-He shot an officer in I
the army; first shot killed the officer. I
Commissioner-Did the soldiers return I
the fire immediately, or did the Indians I
keep up their firing?
Spotted Horse-As soon as the first
shot was fires the Indians immediately
began drawing their knives and they
were exhorted from all sides to desist, but
this was not obeyed, consequentdy tirig

Turning Hawk-All the men who were
in a bunch were kited right there, and
those who escaped that first fire got
into a ravine, and as they went along up
the ravine for a long distancel hey were
pursued on all sides by soldiers and shot
down. as the dead bodies showed after
Commitsioner-In this fight did the Thi
women take any part?
Turning Hawk-They had no firearms N
to fight with. The women were standing 1ev
at a different place from that where the situ
men were stationed, and when the firing DOi
began those of the men who escaped the der
first onslaught went in one direction up a atts
ravine, and then the women who were in'
bunched together at another place went gre
entirely In a different direction through wal
an open field, and the women fared the he
same fate as the men who went up the eta
ravine. his
American Horse said-"The men were ne
separated, as has already been said, from ma
the women, and they were surrounded by not
soldiers and then came next to the village ter
of the Indians, and that was entirely sur- the
rounded by soldiers also. When the sPt

fired upon they fled, the men fleeing
in one direction and the women rcnning loe
in two different directions, so that there ati
were three general directions In which
lr they took flight. Thete was a woman co

Rev. Mr. Cook, Sloux half breed, pastor
of the Episcopal church at Pine Ridge,
who has aSt times acted as interpreter
during conference, rose, and among other
things said: "Much has been said about
the good spirit with which the members
of the Seventh cavalry went to that
seat of action. It has been said [0
that desire to avenge Custer's death was
entirely absent from their minds. In
coming toward Chicago in company with
Gen. Miles, I talked with one of his own
acouts, who was almost killed because he
was compelled to fly with the Indians,
being fired upon by the men whom he
tried to serve and help. lie told me that
after he recovered from his flight and th
succeeded In getting among the soldiers
after they all got in from killing Indiana,
an officer of hign rank, he did not know
who, came to him and said, with much
gluttonous thought in his voice: "Now
we have avenged Custer's death;" and
this scout caid to him: "Yes, but you had
erery chance to fight for your lives thai
day." These poor Indian people did not
bave that opportunity to protect and fight q
for themselves. If this in an indicationt
of the spirit of a number of the men in
that company I am sure the Seventh car C
alry did not go there with the kindest of a

After several others had spoken the
commissioner declared the conference at a
an end. ti

great difficulty it was learned the Dr.
