Oa arrival ot the scene of the dance found a crowd of perhaps ono hundred Qfty daocura around a polo upon which been tied offerings of bright calico In strips of two yards. The dancers advance toward this sin-Inn with uplifted hand& , in supllca- tion to God to keep them good and healthy , A prayer Is then offered by thohend medicine man , and a-plpo li held out with a prayer to God to smoke with them the pipe ot pence , When It Is discovered that the plpo is not smoked the dancers Wall and sol ] aud then commence dancing , holding hands , The diniccri form a ring anil dance around the shrlac , their feet keeping time to n wlcrd and morotoiiou1 * cry. In circling around with their eyes closed they become dizzy , -mid when they cannot dance any longer , fall out on the ground and remain lying there until they regain their consciousness and thca they toll the medi cine man what they saw when in sphit land. Thcso men were offered SS.OO each if they would tell a Catholic priest what thov saw , but they saw nothing und could tell nothing. Outside of tlio fainting net , which h notning but pretense and acting , the dance Is nothing but n quiet religious ceremony , with lesi excitement than is often seen in a Methodist revival. The Indians had no guns nt nil and had none in their tcpeef. They have no idea of being war-like and never had , and are sur prised that any objection should bo made to such n dance. The Indians dance with their clothes all oa nnd with no ornaments whatever : They put on a cotton shirt with n big eagle painted oa the back to tuuo them to the spirit land when they faint. Whllo the dance was In progress fifty mounted Indians came over the hill from Porcupine creek. They cuino in two abrost nnd then lined up In front of the danco. While they were in this line , nnd before they dismounted , wo went down the line and gave each Indian a cigarette. This wo did to look close for arms. We found absolutely nothing in the sliapo of-guns or knives and am sure they had none. When Indians como from a distance of ten miles without guns the indications nro that there Is no war. B. S.
