INDIAN UPRISING FEARED AMONG CHEROKEtS Indian Territory Exercised Over the Pro tracted War Dances Among the War riors of the Nation [Special Dispatch to Daily Alaskan.] Fahlequah, Jan. 28. ? 1 The nomadic and wilder Indians of the Cherokee na tion have withdrawn from the agencies and towns and are now engaged in pro tracted war dancing. They are wear ing war paint and show all the evi dences of a desire to go on the war path. An uprising is feared among the uncivilized Indians of the nation, a? there seems to be an understanding among ail the discontented Indian* in the territory. This Beems evident from the fact that messengers are constantly crossing the country from one village to another, though as yet none but the Cherokees have showed any symptom* of breaking out.
