Omaha, Nov. 22. An In,ii..n i, ,m Wounded Knee giv-ei tlw infonuntion which has, caused tho agenca uiij all to put on a more serious look. Coming in Thursday afternoon he-reported tlict the h'-istiles at Wounded Knee were still car- tying on their dunces and that they had heard of the arrival of the military, but what is of much, more importance to the agouta is they have Klnipped. on their puns and are oanciusc ruliy armed. Thev declare they will meet the soldiers and wui not hesitate to co into battle with them. Reports relative to the Indians ueeJarin.i? tiieir willingtiesa to right for their religious craze iave come in fre quently, but up to this thiie are simply rumors. Tiiis iufonnation eomes direct, however, from a source which Agent Rover pronounces trustworthy, tho man who carried it being one of the agent's carriers. .' "I think it is just as well that tho people outside be placed in possesion of the exact facts in the case, " said Mr. Boyer. "It is not worth while to deny further that the trouble is imminent. Everyone of these -hostiles is- heavily loaded wiih ammunition and they will use it, I have been among them be fore. What ere you going to do?" "We can do nothing yet until the in terior department and the war depart ment give instructions. , .What we think most advisable to do is to wait and let them play their part. They will do it, too. Bloodshed is all that will Btop 1 u'm now. " "That applies to stopping the dances" " Yes sir, they must, be stopped, and soon. " , At WhUc Clay mid JUoillcliie Hut. At a late hour Thursday evening it was learned from couriers that not only have the Wounded Knee Indians con tinued the dance since they learned of the arrival of the soldiers, but those at Vv'hite Clav and Medicine Hat are also in it and are dancing themselves into a frenzy. All these districts are close at hand. Agent lioyer computes tho actual number of able-bodied men who are pre pared to fiK'ht jwid who are -thoroughly armed at tiOG. Thn squaws, who are by no means a trivial factor in the fight, of course stretch that number away out. As yot no orders have been given to re inforce the 400 men now in camp here, but if it becomes necessary there are more than a dozen companies under inarching orders. At the KosebUfl As'cnuj-. The information from the Rosebud ngcrlcy is contradictory and is based en tirely on rumors, one of which is to the effect that Jack Red Cloud sent a warn ing to Niobrara garrison to keep out of this trouble as it was a battlo for re ligion. . The Indians are molesting no body as yet and do not omeet to having the few whites who have this belief to Witness their dance..- In fact, they put in extra kicks at such times for the evi dent purpose of convincing them that they are in earnest. There is not a man in the agency who knows anything about Indian character who does not predict trouble. , ine opportunities are oettor man lor years as the religious nature of the re volt, for revolt it has become, is such that the traders and especially Messrs. Cooper and Rover say it is almost cer tain to result in a hot campaign. The average strength of the Indians' ammu nition is 200 to 400 rounds to each uifyj, If the Indians choose thev might enjf make a detour, the people here claim, and destroy the telephone communica tion, .General BruoUe'a Opinion. (len. Brooke snvs that it is impossible to give new information in the fact that there is nothing more than the certain determination of the Indians to resist to the last any attempts to stop their dancing, This ghost dance has never been described. It consists of a collec tion of 100 or more generally more Indians, who form a ring around a tree within which are placed clothing and gifts for the Messiah, At the Fine Kill ffo Agency. A special from Pine Ridge says that there is ne apparent cause for alarm at the agency. The few Indians there are w.'dking about quietly, stoically in different to the presence of the troops. There is an anxious feeling among the whites, however. Special Agent Cooper arrived from Winfield Thursday. officiaFjTlegrams RegarilltiK the Threnlened Outbreak of the Intlintin. 'Wasiiijcoto.v.

Views of The r York Herald' Wash ington Correspondent. New "York, Nov. 22. The Herald's Washington correspondent says: "It now appears that even Commis- oiuiiei j.vii,uui a usiiuittiu vi tue ueucien cy in the jiension account this year is too low, and that from information just received, it is likelv that tho deficiency will reach $i!),000,0ii0. This means $150,000,000 instead of $135,000, 000 this year for pensions. It means more than $200,000,000 next year for pensions. It means a bankrnpt treas ury and impaired National credit, even sooner than The Heruld had predicted. It means that congress must come at once to the relief of the overburdened government and either repeal some of these unnecessary pension laws, or pro vide additional taxation for their pay ment. "If the pension office works up to the full limit of the capacity of its present force in settling pension cases and issues certificates as rapidly as the cases are settled, the pension deficiency for the year will amount to $15,000,000 instead of $10,000,000. At the smallest calcula tion this increased capacity will amount to an increase of $9,000,000 or $10, 000, 000 over the commissioner's estimate That will make the pension expenditures $150,000,000 for tho year.

Skin Cut From a Little Gill's Side and Transferred to Her Sister's lle.id. Detroit, Nov. C.2. One of the moat remarkable surgical operations in his tory, and ut the same time a great act of heroic self-saeriiice, was seen Tuesday afternoon at Uraco hospital. La t Sat urday Matilda re.Kih. a 10-year-old girl, bad her entire scalp and' left ear wrenched off by her hair getting caught in a shaft. Attempts to place tlie scalp back and make it grow were futile and they tried a new method. Tho wound was so large that it would nxjiiire a tremendous graft to save the child. Tho little one's sister, Emma, .12 years old, who knew what was' wanted, offer ed to spare her skin for tho purpose. The doctors decided that fo ctit the fiesh off and pnt it on would not do, the only way being to make tlie flesh live on the one from whom it was taken, They put both girls under the influence of chloro form, and then cut a piece of flesh eight inches long and five inches wide from Emma's side and breast. That is, they cut all but one side of it.. The loose end was tin n stitched to the flesh on Matil da's head, aud the two little ones bound together so that they could not pull apart. Heroic little Emma will be tied to her sister by these bandages four davs, in which time tho doctors expect the Uesh to knit, to Matilda's bead. Late Thursday night both little ones were conscious and Emnm.wtn evident ly suffering- much pain, but shr said. heroically, that she- did not care it it only saved her sister. It is tho first case on record where a graft of thi i size has been made, mi:l the whole medi;nl fraternity is watching the esse with great interest. TOPOLOBAMPO.

Amlehe, Kan., Nov. 22, A long in terview with a woman just returned from Topolobampo, the co-operative colony on the western coa'st of Mexico, is printed here. Tlie woman says the colonists are suffering great hardship for lack of proper habitations, food and the conveniences to which they were accustomed in their eastern nomas. Tho crops, she says, have been failures for two years past. The colonists have been unablo to make a satisfactory or even a reasonable living, and many of them are willing and anxious to return home, The woman, she says, suflcr most. The atmosphere seen is to sap their very life with its torrid heal. Tho food quickly becomes infected with worms and" insects until they, are obliged to eat with their eyes shut. The legs of the dining tables are" set in pans of water to keep tlie nuts from swarm-, ing over the table, nnd reserve food is hung from the roof bv wires to keep the ants from it. With lizards, flies, snakes and oil manner of creeping insects swarming it is misery to live. Three hundred colonists started for the place from hero last week. SOUTH CAROLINA COTTON CROP.
