Uelicatf health necessitated my leav

linee which iim I have been constant

that a winter iu the climate of fe- uthern
California would prove less rigorous
than one spent on the Atlantic coast.
Reaching col. rado in early September,
the temperature has since been so de
liirhtl.M that it has not ben necessary
to further pursue my Journey towards
the Pacific.
My time has beon spent in the Rocky

traversing picturesque valleys, visiting
Iudian Reservations, prospecting

Yesterday was spent at Julesburg,
Colorado, jiist now iua state of excite
ment owing to the recent opening of the
Stdwich Reservation by the President.
It is a growing town, the last census
showing an increase of over 800 pereenf
in population. Jt is also headquarter
f The National Co-Operative Building
and Land Association, the owners and
manage I of Washington Park Addi
tion, adjacent to the center and to the
lepotofthe main line of tho Union
Pacitic Railway. The Company has
men of ideas in chargf. They have al
ready contracted for the erection ot a
large number of cottages for their
agents, and frankly acknowledge that
they are deeding every fourth residence
lot, while they last, for twenty-live
ents each, a sum barely sutlicient to
pay the preparation of the deed, rely
ing tor their prolit on the increased
value of intervening property and ot
neighboring real estate iu which they
ire interested.
They anticipate a rapid Increaso ol
population In view of the early removal

1 bad a ride last monin to tne top "
Pike's Peak on the 'Cog-wheel" Rail
road recently opened to tourists. It is
the most novel railroad in existence.
Compared with it, those of Mount
Washington, N. II., and the Rhigi,
Switzerland, are insignificant. -The
winding and curving necessary to at
tain three miles of al ltude makes the
road ten miles in length. Its cost wa
hair million of dollars. The road
Led is twenty feet wide, the culverts are
of solid masonry and the bridges and
rails are of the heaviest, steel with 'a
double cog-rail inthecenter. The track
is substantially anchored at short in
tervals to tba solid rock. The cars,
without being tilted, are hung within
fifteen inches of the rails and two pinion
hrakes are so arranged, that, when
necessary, the train can be stopped in
ten inches, either ascending or descend
ing. The engine was coupled at the
tear and pushed the tram, a desirable
innovation, relieving ones' eyes from
the constant annoyance of cinders.
Stops were frequent at all sightly points.
The round trip, costing j.U0, occupied
three hours and was the best invest
ment of time and money, made in ten
years of foreign and home travel.
The prospective silver bill, of which
the main feature is free coinage, is
giving Colorado a prominence never
before attained. Mining is to-day pros
e::uted with renewed vigor, and vast
fortunes are being rapidly accumulated.
This stimulates real estate, the prices
for which have advanced, not only in
Denver, the so-called "Golden City ol
the Plains," where over seventy-five
millions of dollars were expended last
year for buildings, but also in the small
er cities, J. B. B.

Another Engagement In AVhich the Red
skin Are Worsted.
Camp Near Wocxded Knee Creek,
S. Dak., Jan. 6. Another engagement
took place at this point Monday morn
ing. As a number of wagons with sup
plies were known to be coming on the
road from Rapid City to this point, it
was thought best to send out a detach
ment to protect them. So thirty men
were immediately started down the road.
They had not gone over ten miles when
they discovered the wagons, thirteen in
number, drawn up in the form of a
square and being attacked by a band of
about fifty Indians.
The detachment put their horses to a
full gallop, the Indians seeing which,
withdrew to an adjoining bill. The de
tachment now joined the teamsters, who
numbered only nineteen. Sticks of
grain, bundles and boxes were thrown
np in front of the besieged as breast
works. The Indians, noticing tliis, im
mediately returned and commenced the
attack, circling around the wagons, but
keeping at a distance of 800 yards. As a
result the shots from their Winchesters
were not effective, often falling short of
the mark.
The carbines of the soldiers were used
with much more effect, a number of In
dians being seen to fall from their
horses, Meantime their nmnber was
augmented until they numbered some
Cne hundred warriors in all, besides,
some they had posted oS on the ml join
ing hills. One soldier, during the comr
tnencement of the fight, while arranging
the brettstworks, was shot in the
6huulder but not seriously wounded.
Took Ieserato Chances.
A soldier was detailed to return to
camp and report that the detachment
was besieged by the Indians and that
they were attacking the wagon train,
Jle selected a fast horse and made a
break at an opportune moment, the at
tention of the Indians being attracted to
movements made on the other side. As
soon as the object of the ruse was seen,
about twenty Indians gave chase to
Private Collins and fired shot after fchot
at him, but as he had a fast horse he
soon distanced them. They then re-,
turned with the others to the attack.
Thre. pore Indians were, seer tp fal
from their horses and WWP piekfd njj
and carried away by theii' companions,
four cavalry hordes wt-rese phot
and killed, as were a large
number of Indian ponies. "While tho
large body of Indians was being engaged
by the majority of the soldiers and citi
zens, a few Indians scattered about dis
mounted, and getting as close as possi
ble, began firing into the horses and tr
pig to stampede them. This they nearlv
auoetkid ift tMu(f fcvral tune,' &n(

Iteli.foreements Arrive.
By this time things were getting
pretty hot for the besieged party and
shots were flying as thick as hailstones,
and it was hard to distinguish the In
dians through the smoke, The fitlzei.s
had been fighting them for six hours
and the soldiers alKrat three hours, A
little before 4 o'clock p. m. a comin
tion was setn among the Indians, -and
they gradually retreated when it was
seen that troops were coming at full
charge to the rescue.
Everyone gave three resounding
cheers as the troops rode up, the Indians

The"' Situation in the Vicinity of Pine
JUdge Agency,
PlWB Ridge Agency, S, Dak,, Jan 8.
Jack IU4 Cloud and a small party of
t riendlies came in from the hostile camp
yesterday afternoon. They asked that
the Indians now at the agency be sent
out, to get away from Ihe hostiles. It is
looked upon with doubt, and the au
thorities reserve their decision.
The suspension of Col. Forsythe came
like a flash and created amazement in
soma minds. Officials' mouths are
closed to ftU inquiries on the subject. It
is believed that the unfortunate dispo
sition of the troops, making U possible
for them to do cross-firing, with the re
pult of killing one another, constitutes a
part, nnd possibly the greater part, of
the foundation for Col. Forsythe's sus
pension. TLn general situation here is ipcreas

tlement, but who has steitdily stuck to
bis lair In tho Bad Lands, and has no
assumed command of tho great body of
hostiles, Sunday night told the govern
ment spies that lie would take this
agency if it cost every warrior he had.
lialf-breeds have been informed by
friends and relatives, whom some of
them have among the hostiles, that they
had better remove tlieir families a long
distance from the agency as a great raid
and massacre was certain.
The half-breeds are showing the
agency peoplij what they think cf this
information by getting their f amides out
of here with a rush.
The government herder, John Dwyer,
and Issue Clerk Pugh, have both discov
ered through their Indian frieads of
years' standing that a raid and massacre
has been fully decided upon and ma
turely planned. Gon. MiJej is thorough
ly conversant with all these facts, ami
himself says that the situation is exceed

Settlers for miles around have flocked to

are menaced. Many trams arriving in

Indian fight, which was made public at

from Gen. Miles to Maj. Gtn. Schofield,
which says:
"It is stilted that the disposition of 400
soldiers and four pieces of artillery was
fatally effective, and that a large num
ber of soldie rs were killed and wounded
by fire from their own ranks, and a very
large number of women and children
were killed in addition to Indian men."
General Scliofleld Receives an Important
Washington, Jan. C Maj. Gen. Scho
field has received a telegrsim from Gen.
Miles, dated Pine Ridge, Jan. 5, in which
he says:
'In answer to a communication that I
sent to the hostile camp yesterday saying
that men could come in and learn what
I expected them to do, the following
men came in: Big Road, He Dog, Little
Hawk, Jack lied Cloud, and High
Hawk. The fiiv.t three surrendered to
me on the Yellowstone in 1H77. The
prospects tire at present favorable that
the whole camp may 'surrender, but I do
not wish to anticipate. There are no
changes in the condition of troops."
Col. Forsytne's Case.
Numerous telegrams are passing be
tween Gen. Miles and war department
officials, but few of them are made pub
lic. " Since the suspension of Col. For
sythe iu the face of the enemy, many
telegrams touching that case have passed
between Secretary Proctor, Gen. Scho
field tuid Gen. Miles.
These telegrams are not made public,
but it is known that an important tele
gram from Gen. Miles aliout the For
sythe case was laid before the cabinet
Tuesday by Secretary Proctor.
The contents could not be positively
ascertained, but army officials who are
in a position to know, intimate quietly
that Gen.' Miles does' not endorse the
suspension of Col. Forsythe, and in sus
jiending hiin he simply carried out the
orders from the White House,
Investigating Committee.
Maj. Gon. Schofield has received a
telegram from Gen. Miles, stating- that
he has appointed a board of officers con

Omaha, Jan. 8. A World-Herald spe
cial from Piii3 Ridge Tuesday, said:
Evcrj"thing now points to a battle and
a disastrous one. However, it will not
be lietween the troops and the hostiles,
but between the hostiles and the friend
lies who desire to leave the histile camp
and come into the agency.
Red Cloud lias signified his desire to
return to the agency, but he is pearly
bljnd and nu one will voliintwr to lead
him in, for the Brnh-s threaten death to
the first Jeion that attempts to desert
the hostile band. This is causing
trouble. The old Indians want to come
in, but the youug bucks insist in fight
ing. The liands of the Indians are fast
losing strength. The claim alx.ut Ghost
Shirt lieing bullet-pr.iof, has caused the
Indians to think the peace is niore
desirable than war, The cordon of
troops s drawing more tighter around
the hostiles. This is shown by the dis
covery, less than a mile frome Pine
Ridge, of a l.uncn of cows shot with
arrows. Evidently the Indians are try
ing to cut olf a small body of soldiers to
get arms and ammunition.
The hostiles are on guard day and
night. Fires are being burned at night
to prevent any one front escaping from,

Pittsburg, Janv6. The strike of the
Baltimore and Ohio railroad switchmen,
inaugurated about four weeks ago, camo
to a sensational climax at a late hour
last night. Grand Master Sweeney, of

arrived in this cil y yesterday morning,
A stormy meeting was held hist night,
and besides the e.spuMon from the or
ganization of twenty-tight of the men

Sweeney declared that the grievances
presented by the Pittsburg railroaders
were unconstitutional, and declared them
null and void.
Among those officially extolled by
Mr. Sweeny, is the piaster of the Pitts
burg lodge. The expulsion of the lot al
master caused much indignation among
many of the members of the organiza
tion, and considerable difficulty was ex

to settle next year's wage scale. . The
eight-hour day is demanded by the men
as well as weigh scales " on all tipples.
These two points will be made the basis
for a fight on the part of the employes.
The operators met, and prepared an
answer and handed it to the lalxir offi

the depressed condition of the market.
They state that the demands of the men

To a lady going to Nashville, this

are at her service. Her baggage ami
bundles may be checked, aud she can
then go wherever she may choose
tbout the house or the city, without
Oeing encumbered with luggage. II
Che weather is bad, and a lady g'es
to the city only to shop, she need noi
leave the great store at all.
Every sort ot goods iu the greatesi
