Clieyenne Agency.
Special to The Mor.sixo Cull,
MjkSDAs (N. Dak.), Nov. Superin
tendent Green of Riverside ranch, whose
range is near tho Sioux Reservation, came
in this morning. He says the Indians are
coming north, ana are well armed and acting
in an unfriendly manner. A number of In
dians are armed with two guns each and
they have plenty of ammunition. They
passed thiougli town, presumably to stir up
the Indians on the reservations north. Set
tlers are coming in from the south, begging
the citizens to stir up the authorities at
Washington to action. Enough Indians are
traveling about this section to run off all th
rattle and kill half the settlers in the coun
A friendly Indian brings a warning from
the Sioux Reservation. He says the greatest
danger is here. Th) Indians propose to at
tack Fort Abraham Lincoln, knowing there
are but fifty sold .ts tiiere, and then capture
Mandan, massa re the C'.tiz ns and burn the
town. The Krea'est linn prevails among
the people. It is r potted the Indian police
at Standing l.ok Late turn their badges
and revolted.
Slinxeapoi.is, Nov. IT.— The Tribune's
J'andiin (N. Dak.), special says: Settlers
from every direction come in reporting in
sults received from depredatory bunds of
Indians armed to the teeth. The citizens of
Mandan have practically no arms and are
helpless. During the day the entire communi
ty was terrorized. A settler named Ardrom
comes from ten miles out of town and stales
that six Indians camped near his ranch this
morning. I'm toid them to be careful
of fire. They told him to mind his own
business and ominously tapped their guns.
The same fellows this afternoon toid a
friendly Sioux who lives here that they be
long to the army of the Messiah and were
ing down to take Fort Lincoln and burn
and pillage Mandan aud kill the inhab
it;. nLs. They said the Messiah will
lead the army. and do not expect
to co out until next spring; but
when the Messiah says go, they will go,
even if in the depth of winter. These, and
all other Indians traveling through the
country, are armed in an extraordinary way
and loaded down with ammunition. Noth
ing but the immediate appearance of troops
• will prevent an uprising, in the judgment
of old Indian soldiers. A number of women
ami children left to-night for Bismarck and
other points east of the Missouri.

lie reports having found most of the In
dians quiet and no occasion fcr alarm.
There existed some excitement among the
Sioux at Fine Itidge. "The late dances,"
General Kuger said, "increased the excite
ment! There seems to be more uneasiness at
Pine Ridge lhan any other of the agencies.
Should the Indians continue to carry on
dunces and the Messiah craze, it may
necessary for the military to give atteulion
to Fine Kidge. though I hope this will not
be necessary." .
Washington, Nov. 17.— A telegram from
General Miles was received this morning by
General Sehofiela saying there seems to li
no danger of trouble with the Sioux indians
at the Rosebud and other agencies. They
begin io distrust the promises of their medi
cine men about the coming of the Messiah.
Chicago. Nov. 17.— Geueral Miles, ac
companied by Colonel Corbiu, returned this
morning from St. Louis, where he yesterday
had a consultation with Secretary of War
Proctor concerning tho alleged Indian
trouble In the Northwest. Colonel Curbin
said to-day th re is no doubt if the Indians
were to decide upon an outbreak they could
do much harm. They have au abundance
of lilies and ammunition, plenty of borses
and a large supply of meat; but winter is
coming on and the officers hardly think
there is any immediate danger of an out
break. Colonel Corbin said the stories of
evacuation of districts by settlers in North
Dakota ate overdrawn. There maybe some
residents who, fearing the redskins, may
have left their homes, but the stories of
wholesale evacuati ms aie absolutely] without
foundation. "We have made," he said, "a
careful estimate of the number affected by
the Messiah craze, and there are in all not
to exceed 30,000 Indians. Of this number
perhaps one-fifth are able-bodied warriors,
and one-half, or 15,00"), could bear arms.
Such a body, of course, could do much harm
if their movements were not properly ar
rested, but we have taken measures to Inter
cept any outbreak."
General Miles was questioned in person
this evening and said in part: "It would be
unwise to say anything at this time. Any
thing I might say would be telegraphed all
over the country and to-morrow it would be
in the Indian camps. I have nothing to say
now beyond the fact that there is grave ap
prehensions of trouble with the Indians ol
the plains between the Missouri River and
tbe mountains. It is serious among all tin:
different Sioux camps numbering 27,000
men — Arapahoes, Clieyennes, Sboshoues
and Couian -lies." "Can you say anything
of your consulation with Secretary Proc
tor?" "Certainly not; that is just the mat
ter about which it would be most imprudent
to speak."
General Miles has received from the Post
Adjutant at Fort Custer, Mont., the report
of Lieutenant Robertson, who has carefully
investigated the new religious craze nt the
Cheyenne Agency. Ills talks were princi
pally with Porcupine, the apostle of the
.new religion among the Cheyennes, and
with Rig Beaver, who accompanied Porcu
pine on his visit to the new Christ at Walker
£me on his visit to the new Christ at Walker
Lake, Nevada, last year.
Porcupine told him there were several
hundred Indians at Walker Lake at the
time, including representatives ot the Cbey
. ennes, Sioux, Arapahoe^. Gros Ventres.
Utes, Navajoes, .sheep-eaters, Bannocks, and
other tribes he did not know. He (Porcu
pine) first heard of this new Christ at tbe
Arapahoe Agency in Wyoming, where he
and some other Cheyennes visited last fall.
An Arapahoe who had been to the South
western country in 1888 told them about it
Porcupine and others were much interested
and determined to see this new Messiah.
They went on from point to point, travel
ing sometimes by railroad and sometimes by
ponies or wagons. Porcupine insisted that
the teachings of the new Christ wore in the
interests of peace, good order and industry
on the part of the Indians. Lieutenant
Robertson asked him bow it was then that
certain Indian tribes had made this new
doctrine a reason for neglecting their crops,
indulging in demoralizing dances and even
disorder. Porcupine replied that nearly all
the Indians who had gone to hear this new
Christ with him had gone hoping
to bear him preach some incendiary doc
trine. They were disappointed at hearing
that the new creed required them to simply
work and behave themselves, and they con
cluded on their return home not to relate
strictly what had been told them, but to
preach doctrines more agreeable to tbe In
dians. '^■■MMMHSjII
"These men," said Porcupine to the Lien
tenant, "are all liars and they are responsi
ble for any trouble tbat occurs, and not the
new Messiah." Porcupine cited one case In
point, that of a Sioux warrior whom be
heard of but did not know. This man
preached that the new Christ told them the
belief in his religion gave the Indians a
Chaimed life against the whites. From this
•rose insolence and trouble.
Lieutenant Robertson obtained from
Henry Reed, an Arapahoe interpreter,
and au intelligent half-breed. Information
which, If true, would establish the identity
of the so-calied new Messiah. Reed says he
is a Pah-Ute Indian named John Johnson,
The Morning Call.
a very intelligent but not an educated man.
This man lives on Walker Lake Reserva
tion, where other Indians claim to have seen
the new Christ. Keed reports that the
Arapahoes aro much excited over the
doctrine and that many of them
have even torn down their houses and sold
the log. Boed says the agent and Indian
police have entirely lost control over them.
Prom all Lieutenant Robertson could learn
Porcupine's influence has been constantly
exerted for good and in the line of what lie
claimed the new Messiah told him, in
contradistinction to the preachings of other
redskin missionaries.
rojtcurixE's statement.
Appended to the Lieutenant's statement
is the statement of Porcupine as written
down by Bobertson with the aid of an in
terpreter. This is lengthy, describing in
detail how lie first heard of the new Christ
and the various stages of the journey of him
self and companions to meet him. Ho said
the people at the point where the new Christ
was seemed all good people, although of
many tribes. Tiiere was no fighting or
drinking. The chiefs of the home tribe
brought word from the Messiah to remain
fourteen days in camp.when he would come to
see them. He sent them something to eat
like a big white nut. Finally one morning
hundreds of people gathered near Walker
Lake Agency in a great ring, and just before
sundown more people came dressed lv white
men's clothes, although mostly Indians, and
ihe Christ was with them, lie was not so
dark as an Indian nor so light as a white
man. He had no bearJ, but very heavy eye
brows. Un was dressed like a white man,
excepting he had on moccasins. "He com
menced our dance," said Porcupine, "every
body joining in, and the Christ singing. We
danced till late at night, when he told us we
bad enough. I heard that the Christ had
been crucified, and I saw a scar on this
man's wrist and on his feet.
"The next evening we assembled again;
he sang, then trembled violently and then
lay down apparently dead, while we danced
all night. Next morning lie sat down among
ns, and talked with us, saying: 'I am the
man who made every thing you see around
you. I have been to heaven and seen your
dead friends, and have seen my own father
and mother. In the beginning, after God
made the earth, they sent mo back to teach
the i eople, bat the people were afraid of me
and treated me badly. This is what they
did to me [-bowing his scars]. ' 1 found my
children were bad, so I went back to heaven
and left them. I told them that in so many
hundred years I would come back to see
them. Mv father told me the earth was
getting old "lid worn out and people getting
bad, and that I was to reoew everything as
it used to be and make it better."
Porcupine added: "The Christ said that
all the dead were to be resurrected;
that they were all to come back to earth
and as that was tto small for all now he
would do away with heaven and make
earth itself large enough to contain all. He
spoke to us about lighting, and said that
was bad and that we must keep from it;
tbat the earth was to be all good hereafter;
that we must be triends with one another
He told us not to quarrel or strike or fight
or shoot one another; that the whites and
Indians were to be all one people. lie said
if any man disobeyed what he ordered his
tribe would he wiped from the face of the
earth. We must believe everything he said
and be wouid know our thoughts and ac
tions, no matter in what part of the world
we mignt be. I thought all lie said was
good. Whei I got back 1 knew my
people were bad and heaid nothing of
ali this, so I got them together
and told them of it and warned them to
listen for their own good. I told tin m just
what I have told you Iter." to-day. lf you
think 1 am not teiiing the truth you can go
and see this man yonrsell. 1 will go with
you, and I would like some of my people
who doubt mo to go too. The Christ talked
to nil in our respective tongues. You can
see him in yOur sleep auy lime after you
have on. c met and shaken hands Him."

the Messiah referred to. -ays Reed told him
Johnson has tattoo marks on his wrists. He
is quite wealthy in horses and cattle.

Special to The Morning Call.
New York, Nov. 17.— The stock market
to-day, after having had time to recover from
the scare of Saturday, was much less active
than for any day during the last two weeks,
and the evident return of confidence caused
a slow but material advance in value; all
alcug the line, notwithstanding the fact that
there was great Irregularity and feverish
ness throughout the entire day. There
were two more failures announced, ow
ing to shrinkage in values, but
they had but slight effect. To - day
developments show conclusively that the
market for a long time has been largely
oversold, and bids and ostensible purchases
were made by bears when the number of
stocks called for could not be obtained in
the mm ket. The general opinion seems to
be that it is now only a question with in
vestors of getting stocks at the present
prices. The feeling of insecurity has almost
subsided and a steady improvement may
now be looked for on a sound basis. Gov
ernments are dull. Petroleum, December,
closed at 71. •-'-■--■.'
High London quotations and the buying
of stocks by London houses caused a par
tial return of confidence. This was in
creased by the understanding that Jay
Gould, D. O. Mills, the Vanderbiits and
other important interest's 'Would join Hands
in giving support to prices. It was also
stated that a large pool in which Gould was
interested had been a heavy buyer of

This evening Stato Superintendent of
Ranking Preston said it was definitely de
cided that the North River Bank would not
resume. The Directors were unable to se
cure the required funds. It was pretty well
understood this result was made necessary
because of the stand taken by two of the
Wall-street banks, which insisted that un
less actual cash to the amount deposited in
the bank was in the possession of the bank
to meet the deposits the bank should not be
allowed to clear through the Clearing-house.
Preston said that upon Closer examination
Of the collaterals held by the bank as secur
ity for loans he bad found there would be a
shrinkage in their actual value. This, he
believed, would make a nominal deficiency
of about SIO.OOO.
It was rumored on the street this evening
that the Manhattan Hank had borrowed
$1,000.00000 loan certificates from the Clear
ing-house. The officials of the bank would
not talk on the subject and President Lap
pan of the Clearing-house would not deny
or affirm the rumor, It was said by several
brokers that the Manhattan Bank was in a
perfectly sound condition and the borrowed
million was for the use of several of the
bank's customers.
Opportunity fcr Enterpiivng Americans to
Establish a BstEuaeralive Business.
Philadelphia, Nov. 17. — Henry M.
Stanley sat in the parlor at the Stratford
and talked to an interviewer. "So you want
to know what chance there is for an Ameri
can enterprise in Africa? Well, at present
trade could only be carried forward on a
small scale by private enterprise. Of course,
there are Immeasurable possibilities for de
velopment In Africa, but it needs colossal
sums, yet a, great deal of trade may be picked
np by vessels taking to the coast cargoes of
Yankee notions. Before the war Yankee
■-kippers used to visit tho African shores in
Van bee schooners and they made fortunes.
They could do so now better than ever be
fore, but for some unaccountable 'reason'
they do not. Suppose a Yankee schooner
goes over there laden with . lied goods,
chairs, tables, American notions, a few hams,
pork, wheat. Hour, corumeal, all kinds of
fabrics from velvet to the commonest cot
ton ; well, you get a cargo of those things to
Congo and they will sell like lightning at
100 per cent profit. In exchange you can
get either money or palm nil, and on bring
ing tlie latter back to civilized countries you
can realize immense profits. I am convinced
fortunes can be made in this way to-day just
as well as before the war by American car
The Investigation of the World's Fair Man

President Palmer presented the resolutions

calling on the National Commission, iv its

At a joint conference . this evening be

O'Shea and Parneli, and that there had been
no connivance on the part ol Captain O'Shea.
In summing up to the jury the Justice
dwelt upon the charge of connivance by
O'Shea, and asked why there was a ne
cessity for all the disguise resoil.d to by
Parneli if petitioner connived at bis wife's
The Court then granted a decree of di
vorce to petitioner, awarding him the cus
tody of the younger children, and that the
co-respondent pays the C'.s's.
The London Times print-. I the evidence
word for word, as in the Tipperary trials
and it is reported that a Times pamphlet wilt
be issued containing a complete narrative of
the case.
The statement of coun«e! that Parneli
rode behind horses named President, Dicta
tor and Home Utile is commented on by tie
Conservative press as indicating Pamell's
ambitious designs in respect to the future
of lreiand. The Tories also Question the
correctness of the Pall Mall Gazette's as
sertion that Lord Nelson did not lose prestige
through his intrigue with Lady Hamilton,
the contrary being averred. It is an historical
fact that while Nelson's wonderful talent as
a naval commander made his services in
dispensable to his country he was socially,
and in a great degree politically, injured by
his defiance of moral law. Besides, it is
pointed out that public sentiment is more
rigorous against such offenses now than in
lie- days of Nelson. •
The Telegraph publishes Parnell's polit
ical obituary. It says he must cease, fur
the present at least, to lead the Nationalist
party, it is reported the followers of Par
uell do uot desire him to retire, unless by
his own Won, in which event the leader
ship of the Irish party will be vested In a
commission, of which Justin McCarthy will
, be President
The provincial newspapers join in a
chorus of denunciation of Parneli. Several
Gladstouian papers advise his temporary
retirement. The London Chronicle says:
"The middle class electors in England will
certainly resist any appeal, even by Glad
stone, to support a party led by Parneli." I
The News says: "Political parties and
principles are independent of accident to in
dividual leadership, The discredit attach
ing to Parneli will not reflect on his party.".
Toe Times says: "If Paruell intends to
remain the leader of his party he will place
the Gladstoiiians in a serious dilemma." 4s I
The Standard thinks the Gladstoiiians.
will court moral destruction if they continue
even in political intimacy with Paruell. ■ .

Report of Professor Elliot on the Condition of
Seals in Alaska, i- ,."- > ~
Washington, Nov. 17.— Professor Henry
W. Elliott. Special Agent 'of the Treasury
Department to visit Alaska and report upon
the condition of the seals there, Is again in
the city. .; He confirms the statements here
tofore made by other parties and says that
not more than 20,000 animals were captured
during the past season.. The Secretary of
the Treasury had allowed a limit of 60,000,
as against 100,000 taken last year. The
seals, he says, are on the verge of exter
mination, and it was a statement to this
effect by the Euglisli firm of Lnmpsons
that caused such a rise in the price of furs.
Professor Elliott thinks the Government
will have to take steps to join with England
in an effort to stop the killing of seals for
some seasons to come in order that the
animals may rest undisturbed lor a few sea
sous. Be says, in relation to gold-mining,
that none of the mines are doing anything
save the Tread well mine, near Juneau.
The population is increasing very slowly.
There are probably not mure than 12,000
whites in the Territory, unless those en
gaged in the. salmon-canning trade be
counted, and they simply go up there every
summer and return in the fall.

acted in good faith and has complied with

should lie allowed to perfect bis entry.

Funeral Sunday at 2 _. jr., at parents' resi
dence, .0.141 Vale sheet. Kuglewuod, 111. Re
mains will be taken East for burial.
The facts attending the above simple an
nouncement of a death are sad and peculiar
enough to call fur more than passing men.
At 6941 Yale street is the home of Mr.
and Mrs. D. T. Jones. There lies, en
shrouded in a white casket, the body of their
eleven-year-old daughter, Marion, until
Friday the pride and joy ot her parents' life.
The case is an extremely pitiful one. Mr.
and Mrs. Jones are numbered among the
best- known people in Euglewood. Their
home, pleasantly situated, is furnished with
all the material comforts that the -heart
could wish for, and was made more attract
ive by the presence of their daughter, who
gave promise of becoming a brilliant woman.
Now the home is desolate and the parents
are heartbroken.
Marion was a beautiful girl despite the
fact that a small mole had made its appear
ance on her right cheek. It was this small
defect which was primarily the cause of her
death. Her parents were very anxious that
tiieir daughter should appear well in society
and the mole was a constant source of an-'
noyance to them. Then, too, they feared
that it might develop into something more
After considerable deliberation it • was
decided' to have the blemish removed
by a surgical operation. This conclusion
met with the approval of the child, for she
had reached that age when sue began to
take - pride In her. personal appearance.
After consulting with friends as to the best
Institution to go to for the performance of
the operation, Mr. and Mrs. Jones selected
the Presbyterian Hospital. There they and
their daughter went Friday afternoon, Ma
rion impatient and nerved for the coining
operation, although apprehensive of thu
pain that might result fr<in it.
It was Dr. Charles T. Parkes, a member
of the surgical start of the hospital, who
piled the knife. Marion was placed ou iho
operating table, and preparations were
made by Dr. Parkes for administering the
usual anesthetic. A cloth was saturated
with chloroform and applied to the girl's
nostrils. So brave was she that sin- offered
to hold the cloth in place while the surgeon
was placing his instruments in position in
readiness fur the operation.
Then, with her parents standing beside
her, the young girl sank into a sleep Irom
which she was never to awake. The mole
was soon,removed.Aiid restoratives applied
in older to '< resuscitate the patient The
effort resulted only in a convulsion, which
ended in death. ;■ When Dr. Parkes was
forced to announce the sad fact Mr. and
Mrs. Jones refused to believe it. But when
they finally - realized the truth their grief
moved even the attendants, who aro accus
tomed to such scenes, to tears.— Chicago
