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
"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
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
, 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,

.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.

"Among politigans the belief prevails

He estimated the cost of the now law

he had no doubt that the revenues of

ordinary expenses of the government

Views of The r York Herald' Wash
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
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

The Co-OpeintlTO Colonists PU'inttrt
With the HUuoltoii.
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.
