Pink Ridqk Ahexcy, S. Dak., Nov. 25. Tho Kosebud Indians have at last joined tho ghost dancers of line liidge agency. They are heavily armed and defiasit. It is now estimated that the hostiles aro 000 strong. They are lead by No Water, Big Hoad and Little Wound. They still refused to come to camp, although Monday was ration day. Some of the gliost dancers, however, are in camp. They have been here for some time. They aro for the most part robed in white cloaks and leggings, and their faces are nearly concealed by their ghostly looking hoods. Red Star, one of their widest men, was in camp Sun day night. He is a young fellow, who is dressed in store clothes, but ho wears the eaglo feathers of the Messiah and consequently will never die. There'll ITe a Running Flfht. When the military marches to break up the religious ceremonies of the sav ages, which will be done na (-0011 as re inforcements come, there will be a run ning tight in the Dad Lands of Nebraska similar to the Modoc war, which proved bo disastrous to the army. The young bucks on White river seem determined to break loose from the old men and give tlie soldiers a chase. There are many spies in camp and in case of any aggressive move of the troops they would be gone in a flash on their ponies to join their people. The attitude of the friendly Indians now camped here will probably depend largely on the success or failure of the hostiles. At present they profess great reverence for the United States government. taood Advice from American Horse. Saturday night Chief American Horse made a powerful speech to the Indians in tlie council liouse of tho agency. He spoke earnestly and in a loud voice to his people. He begged them not to turn against the whites, who, he said, were as plentiful as leaves in the forests, and pointed out to them the folly of believ ing in the speedy appearance of Christ. The noble old warrior was followed by hi words, the chief o police. The attitude of old Red Clou 1 nnd his son is still problematical. Their camp is isolated from the rest of tho Indian village, in an interview with an inter preter Sunday night young Red Cloud said that he h id danced but once iu a ghost dance. lie said the Indians were simply hold ing a revival utter a fashion of the whites; that they earnestly believed that, Christ would soon appear, and that ids jieoplo knew 110 .reason why tlie troops should be here. Young Red Cloud, however, is a good off-hand liar, and little credence can bo given his story. It, is known that he lias been one of the big men of the dance, and he is also the fellow who six days ago cried out to his people to bnrn the ager y buildings. He is also accused of steal ing a wagonload or beet on the last issue day. Something of a Scare, Sunday night something of a scare prevailed. They have lieen going to a creek about half a mile from the post to water the hoises. Along tlie creek since Saturday a village of ghost dancers' tepees has sprung up. Sunday evening the black trooiiors mounted their horses with carbines loaded and cartridge belts in place. Then under command of a lieutenant, instead of the usual orderly sergeant, they slowly cantered to the creek. After the horses had drank their fill the soldiers crossed into tlie Indian village. The stampede that followed was al most instantaneous. Squaws and papooosesran screaming into the tepees while tho bucks hast ily mounted their ponies and tied to the hills. But tlie troopers had only crossed in order to turn and go back to camp. This ma neuver excited the village, which was soon repeopled with Indians. This serves to show what view the command ing officers takes of the situation, lie feels it is well to be ready to fight and sent his men out on a caecful errand, fully prepared to war. Nearly all the Indians who draw ra tions here are now encamped around the post. It is a part of the plan to re fuse to issue beef 011 Wednesday to such of the Indians as refuse to give up the ghost dance. It may be that this will settle the matter without trouble and it may bring on a fight. Special Agent Cooper thinks that any pretext may be seized upon. Dancing is dying out, but he is not sure whether it. is treachery or obedience that is causing the cessation. A number of Rosebud Indians are here without passes, and their presence bodes no good. All are unanimous in their assertions of good will, but they are carefully measuring the strength of the troops all the while. Little Wound, one of the leaders of the ghost dance, haa refused to come into the agency, saying that if tlie agent wanted to sc.' him ho must call at the Little Wound's tepee. At present it is a toss-np letween peace and war. IiteHt from l'lne Kldc. Omaha. Neb., Nov. 25. The latest advices from Pine Ridge are ta the ef fect that the Indians continue to bring in their squaws and children which is taken as a sure sign by the tinny jieoplc that there will lie 110 fighting at that ioint.

Saturday evening there waa a sudden change for the worse in the king's condition, tlie symptoms lxdng those ef urainia. The tjueen was im mediately sent for, and stayed tit the bedside during the night. His afflic tion was softening of thi'brain, and ho was unusually quiet and almost coma tose, but at times displayed great men tal excitement. Tho king's death severs from Holland tho duchy of Luj-emlMiurg, which will probably bo com 1 attached, under the Duke of Nassau, to 1h empire of Germany. Tiie death of the King of Holland is for more than one reason an important potiiieal event. Notwithstanding his notorious muri tial inlidclities, (jueen Emma showed the utmost toiidcrno-s toward her slow ly dying husband. Ilinriiiiliieul. William III, king of the Netherlands, was horn 011 IVb. Ill, 1HI7. Ho was the eble I. son of lung William 11 and Prince s Anna Paulowna, daughter of Lingerer Paul of Riisia. King William received his education from private tutors' and at. the aiinivefsity of Leyden. lie was married in b"i!l to the Pineess Sop'de. who was the second daughter of Kin;; William 1, of Wurtemberg.
