TOO MUCH "FAKE" NEWS. The Indian SitnntioH WuXover So Crave tU llepnrtefl. Ohicauo, Din. 5. Col. Hey, in spector geuu-al, division of the Mis sou ri, returned Wednesday morning from a visit to the scene of the Indian 7 A LX A) S Wfc '1 I. -V- A sittixo nrix. troubles in the northwest. In an inter view he said: "My opinion is that there is no immi nent danger of any serious trouble. The troops are concentrated and seem to have the situation perfectly in hand. " "As a matter of fart has the situation ever been as grave as has been reported in the newspapers V" 'Nothing like it, " he replied emphat ically. "A great part of the scare has been totally uncalled for. Why, a number of newspapers got to printing a rmniler of sensational and grossly ex aggerated stories about the Indians, mid many settlers in Dakota end Nebraska bf ame panic-stricken. Thev sold their property for almost anything they could get, abandoned their homes and rushed to the nearest railway station, when the fact is that they were in no more danger front the Indians than we are here in Chicago. " "Do you consider the movement of the Indians toward tho Dud Lands as ominous V The colonel pmiled. "I'll tell yon about the alarming retreat to tho Bad Lands," ho said. "In 'the Bad Lands there aie many fertile stiots on which the Indians live. When the order went out calling the tribes into the agency these Indians had to abandon their homes. In their absence some bands of marauders have been committing petty depredations, such as stealing chickens and household utensils. This came to the knowledge of the Indians at the agency, and numbers of them are slip ping away, whenever they can get an opportunity, for the purpose .of going back to protect their chattels. " "Nothing in it more (dunning than a quiet Hank movement to protec t some hen roosts, thenV" "That is about it," tho colonel re plied. "I reached the Pine Kidge on tho 27th. I fonnd that the daneo had censed three days before I got there. And I may add that it was not resumed when I left. The Indians were traiet and peacefully disposed. Sijme few of the Ogallala Bioux, particularly trp young bucks of that tribe, were anxious for trouble, but these were pretty much controlled by the older Indians. Tho principal cause of the Indian trouble is lack of proper provisions in tho way of rations, princi pally meat rations. The latter has been reduced 1,(100. OHO pounds for the Pine Kidge reservation alone, and the author ities there have a pnicl ice of issuing a Steer at the weight at which it was re ceived. For im t nw, the agency might got a steer in the fall that would not weigh more than t oo pounds, but it would l e i-isned as 1.000 pounds all the same. Of course, the Indians would lose the difference." This one great source of dissatisfaction. "The Indians generally, I think, are inclined to accept any proposition mado to rflem by the military authorities of a peaceful nature, but when I left there whs a big snow storm and blizzard com ing, which I think will cool the ardor of the young bucks. "I do not auticipaie a winter cam paign in the Indian country, in that sense of the word, but the troops will be kept there as against any trouble that might happen this winter, or any at tempt to go on the warpath in the spring. The Indians are not properly led, and there will be the probability of trouble until they are. In the spring they may make a break that is. tho young bucks but they can be controlled. Troops will be there tJ attend to them If they make trouble. "I believe an elt'ort is leing made to incTca-' the meat rations among the Indians. Several bauds came in while I was there. When 1 left, Young-Man-Afraid-of-His-lIorsrs was coming in with his band, c-irrying a yellow Hag, which -is a token' of jx-ace. " ion. Milps Coini; to tlip ortliwct. Gen.

Miles, and an excellent authority on western Indian matters, is in the city from Chicago. Speaking of the situation Wednesday he said: "I have no doubt there will be fighting sooner or later with the Sioux at Standing Bock and Pine Kidge agencies. 1 know the more prominent leader.-) of the Indians' at these agencies intended to start out next spring and raiel catt le ranches, but some of the young men on the reservation favor lighting now.
