GHOST DANCERS VERSUS MILLERITES , Johnny Mtiher Arrested Upon a of Forgery An Hntcrtnln * in cut Tor the Homo < > ! ' the I'l'lcndloen. At St. Paul's church yesterday morning Hev. T. J. Mnckay gave some interesting thoughts on the subject of Indian nnd whlto Mejsslahs. The following is the outline of the discourse : The history of tbo race has been one of dissatisfaction nnu unrest , and u constant looking forward to some irolJen ago which should fulllll all the asplr.itlons of mankind. Every race has had Its Messiah. The .lews looked forward to ono who was to restore them to their own land nnd their former national glory. IIo came , not us the earthly conqueror. but ns tbo "I'rlnco of Peace" tiot to deliver from the Koinan yoke , but to sot them free from sin. fii vain ho declared his kingdom was not of this world. Even among his chosen disciples , the olil leaven lingered nftor his crucifixion. Despite the warnings of his tory nnd the sad experience of the Jews , many still believe in a literal coming of a Messlnh. who Is to reign upon this earth for n thousand years. The curious form of fanntlclsm which Is llko wild lire through the Indian tribes is simply the repetition of similar phenomena which have occurred in ottier lands. Deprived of land and liberty , it is natural that they should Indulge In tbo hope so common to the race , that n mighty deliv erer wns to arise , who was to restore to them their ancient privileges nnd crush the bated whiles. This belief may have originated in the teachings of Christianity , and ns they heard of the promised Messiah of tlm Jew and tbo Christian. 1 * . was but natural they should be Incited bya llko hope. Wo may smile at their enthusiasm nud the ghost dunces by which they keep nllvo this fanaticism , but when wo remember the Mlllcrlto cruzo wo should hesitate before Judging them harshly. Their ghost dances are not much moro ridiculous than the nightly meetings of the Mlllerltcs In their whlto robes , preparing to meet tbo Lord In the air. The mlllenium of tbo Indian , which con sists of plenty of buffalo meat and freedom to hunt and 1111 tholr belts with scalps of tbo bated white , is but llttlo inoro gross and ma terial than the inlllcnium to which largo numbers of intelligent people are looking for ward. Notwithstanding their many sad disap pointments nnd tbo Hat failures of their prophecies , it Is surprising that this belief is still shared in by so many eurncit , sincere Christians. Their peculiar views are based on the prophecy of Daniel and that equally mystical book , the revelation of St. John , the divine. I commend the reading of Furrnr's "Early Days of Christianity , " where ho conclusively proves that tbo revelation is simply n description of the events already happening at tbo time St. John wrote , are a prophecy of the events which wcro soon to happen in tbo destruction of Jerusalem and the persecutions of Ctiristians under Nero. Wcro it for nn other reason than the vast divergences of the commentators of this won derful book 1 should bo inclined to look with suspicion upon the theories of the ndventlst , whoso views are completely nt variance with the hading Christian scholars in every laud today. Uut n ldo from this I cannot see any reason in the eternal Illness of things for the expec tation that Christ .will comu in person to reign upon this earth for a thousand yc.irs. It Is improbable to thlnlc thnt after IIo de clared that it was expedient for Ills followers tlint IIo should go away from them , in order that His teachings might bo understood by them , thr.t Ho should leave ttio glories of heaven to reign cm u llttlo planet lilio this earth. Tbo whole doctrine has a ropulslvo , ma terial aspect. It the glories of hoavcn ore equal to tbo anticipation wo have formed of it from tbe revealed word , where would bo tbo advantage of a thousand years' oxistonca on this earth I Would it not still bo un exile from the true homo of the heart I There is to be n coming of Christ , but it is not wholly in the future , nor wholly outward Wherever right has triumphed , there ha < Christ oomo. Underneath tbo Messiah of the Jews , the A voter of tbo Hindu , tbo Golden Ago of tlu Itomuii , the Messiah of the Indian and tlu coming of the King of the Second nuventist lies the one great hope common to every race , and shared in by ttio same enthusiastic nn " turcs everywhere" . Wo may stnllo at thcli extravagances and pity their being led captive tivo by delusions , but their hope is liuniai and wo nil share In it. Like travelers bourn for the snni'j port , wo lose sight of each otboi in tbo mists and darkness , but tbo siunc goa is over before us that goal , the hopa tbn some day evil will have disappeared , sin b ( vanquished forever , nnd above earth's babe sounds shall bo heard , tbe echo of the nngcl'i song on Bethlehem's plain , proclaiming evl dead and Christ tbo heart's true king. Wo do not noliovo that the realization ol this liopo lies In the progress of 'tbo intellect or in now conquests over nature , or in im provemcnt of laws , nor In tbo glories of art or triumphs of science. All these may bi characteristics of the dav for whtcU all trm hearts sigh , but that which will truly con stltuto the blessedness of man will bo tin gradual dying out of his baser passions , am the inner growth ot Uodllko love and self sacrltlco. Instead of waiting and wondering wo should carnetly labor for the coming o that kingdom , for which wo daily pray. A UTJSIXKSS 1'KOl'OSITIOX.

At each of the 13 places the company will pay all the expcns that may bo incurred and will employ i active local secretary , who will devote all of hit time to the work.

Johnny Mnlier In More Trouble. Johnny Mnlier , who has not always sailed through the smoothest sens during his years of residence In Council Bluffs , Is In trouble ngnln , and trouble that may prove to bo ol a serious nature. Ho his scarcely recovered from the wounds that wcro Inflicted upon him by ox-Ofllccr Noycs while resisting arrest last summer , and has been living very quietly without attracting public attention. Last evening ho was brought before the public ngnln by being arrested upon the charge of littering forged paper. Ho vehemently dcnys all knowledge of the crime nnd claims to feel no uneastncss.over the outcome of the case that Is being made against him. On Saturday evening two young nnd some what innocent looking young men went into the Mint saloon. Quito a crowd were in there and they were at once taken to bo a couple of verdnnts from the country. Several cracks wore made ut them and finally a proposition was made for them to wrestle with each other for money. Several mutches were mndo and some money was bet. on the result. Finally the smaller ono of the strangers was matched to wrestle a colored porter. Mnlier was back ing the boy nnd wanted to but 510 more on the result , but did not have the money. Tlio doy had taken off part of his clothes and loft them In an adjoining room. In ono of the pockets was a & 0 bill. IIo told his comrade to KO back and got the money and take care of it , nnd while ho was dome so Mahcr appeared and tooic the money out of bis hand and put It In bis pocket , tell ing him that the young man had told him to tnko it and bet on tbo result. Tha comrade Imparted this information to tbo boy , and ho stopped bis preparations for tbo contest nnd bunted up Mnhcr. Mahcr told him lie only wanted to borrow $10 of It , and would take the bill and give him a chock for the other half. Maber had been Introduced ns Frank II. Ueed. Ho prqduced n blank chock and drew it for the amount. The young man ac cepted It and went on with the contest and got beaten. Yesterday bo tried to get his check cashed at several places , but no one know a man with u nnmo correspond ing to that signed to the 'check. It finally dawned upon him that ho bad been victimized , ana bo bunted up a police man and told ids story. The ofllcor sent him to the station and bo confldod in Chief Cnroy. When the chief heard it and questioned both of tbo young men and obtained a full descrip tion of tbo man who had given the check ho roadlly recognized him ns Johnny Manor , nnd ordered Olllcer Graham to arrest him. He was found and taken to tbo station. Tbo two young men were questioned by Chief Carey nnd thny told him who thov were nnd where they came from. The llttlo follow , who had been contldcnccd , said his name was Sam Smith and that ho was n nephew of 1' , .1. Mulhollnnd , the ice man in this city. The oilier wns Frank Hoed. They bad been working on n farm In Shelby county and came to the city Friday night. They still had the worthless check in their possession , after having fulled in several efforts tc pot It cashed. The check was drawn on the First National bank in favor ol "cash , " and signed "Prank H. Heed. " Tiioj haunted the bank closely during the after noon nnd at mail time met one of the ofilccrt who had stopped in a moment. They shoivei him tbo check and wcro promptly assurei that no such man as Frank II. HeoJ had an accou nt ihuro , tAf tor Matter was brought to the station'thi hoys wcro taken In and nt once indentltiei ! him as the person who bad given the check but Mnlier declared that ho did not knov them and hail never scon thorn before. A messenger was dispatched for Actinj Police Judge Schurz , and Smith and Heei ; filed an information charging Mnber with ut tcring forged paper. Ho wns still at tbo sta lion awaiting developments , and before the key was turned on him Dan Cnrrigg had lllei a bond for him for Sl.fiOO , and ho was rclcasoi to await a hearing today. Immediately afterward a complaint wai lodged against Smith nnd Heed , chargbif. them with carrying concealed weapons , ant they were placed under arrest.

' 'Lights nnil Shadows , " luVld mclo-dtamn , the scenes of which nrclo&i < < ! d In New York under "Tho ring , " whnteyc ' | lint may inenii , was made known nt the Gijind last evening to a very largo audience. . . "bights nml Shadows" Is the sort of piny thnt Is generally alluded ty UH "n drnmmer. " The peculiarities of thd.drammcr" , piny are live nets ; twq , .heroes ono n vlllnn , ono an nngclwho - sacrifices bis llfo for the heroine ! olio heroine who tlces the Importunities rtf the vlllnln-boro throughout tlio live nets , eventually fetching up in tbo arms of the nngel-hero ; ono villain- woman who Invariably talk 'ivlth ' nn accent ; and two or thrco old men who dlo nnd leave largo fortunes to the heroine. If these per sonages nro mixed up Judiciously and flavored with n police Inspector nnd two or three toughs , the whole garnished with a tank , you have n "drummer" play of tbo "Lights nnd Shadows" order. * The members of the company have evi dently been selected for tlio quality of tholr voices , for the piny Is cast In a heroic mold , and It requires lung power to bring out the thrilling nnd srnsatloiml clmmxcs in which the "drummer" abounds. Miss Nannie Palmer played the much * tortured heroine , nnd W. 0. Iloldcn tbo angel-hero. The amount of suffering they were compelled to undergo would drive most man nnd women insane , but they always coino up smillnp , ready for the next encoun ter , which they Invariably knocked out in the wind-up. The scenery is good and the den of Mother Meg , which Is eventually Hooded with water , realistic to n degree , us Is also the steel room , which caught tlio gallery ns completely as "NIok-of-thc-Woods" did long ago. Tbo play Is reminiscent of the palmy days and to tbo gallery Is "out of sight.

To the Editor of TUB BEE : In regard to Mr. Coots' denial wo would like to make the following statement : Mr. Coots says ho never got n bid from us , that ono was mailed to him the afternoon of the day of letting. Now , wo can prove by our bookkeeper that bo personally took tbo bid to Mr. Coots' otllco nbout ! ) o'clock In tbe morning , when the bids wcro to ho In ut 11 o'clock in tbo forenoon. Mr. Coots asked mo tb divide our bid , which was a lump bid for both plumbing nnd steam heating , but when 1 refused to ao so Mr , Coots told mo In his own otllco that our bid was lower than any two combined bids , ho should use our figure , and , if tbo contract was awarded to him , we should bnvo the plumbing nnd steam heating. As for my calling tbo plumbing ! , UOO , or any other sum , it is false. Mr. Coots says after tbe bids were opened and I knew Just exactly what they were , I divided my bid so that I was Just $ .10 below Mr. Free. Now , it can bo proven by the records of the city council that Mr. Fi-co never put In u bid. How could I know what his bid was ) Now , Mr. Coots knows nnd I can provo It by different parties , thnt first ho offered us $200 or ? , WO to withdraw entirely. When that offer was refused , wo were offered the plumbing nnd told that the architects raised objections to our doing the steam heating us they did not know that wo were competent to do the work. After this was refused Mr. Coots came to our olllco and told us that the only way to settle tbo matter wns for 'us tc take the steam heating and let Mr. Free have the plumbing , as there wns such a pressure brought to bear on him by certain parties , that ho could not help himself. - As faras our agreeing to accept , the steair heating without tbo plumbing is conecrnei Mr. Coots knows that it Is not so.

A dispatch In a morning paper the ether ilny gave the vendor nn account of tliu death of a man in a southern town who , the correspondent stated , was none other than Qunntroll , the Black Fin } , ' lender of the bordol' . Several newspapers copied the dispatch and somebody was interviewed about it , who said the in- fornmllon wns a Ho. Of coin-so It was , says a Louisville , Ky. , correspondent of the Chicago Tribune. At this distance thro are Boino intorc&tlng facts about Qmuitroll. Ho burnt , pillaged , robbed , cursed the enemy to his face , was as relentless as a wild beast and gave no quarter. Hut ho wns a character , such a one as only war produces. Franco had such in Its day of terror. There was La , Tour do Auverjjno , who at the Inst Wallced out from the prison walls , Dressed llko n prince for n parade. Hut for the master whom ho worshiped Joachim Murut would htivo fought ns Qunntroll did. The man who came on the field of Waterloo In time to change the map of Europe and , us an eminent lCiif'linli divine snlil when ho heard of the result , "turned bni'lr the hand of time u half century , " was of the same typo. Hlnchor was a buteher and a tyrant and would liavo preferred , Had ho boon left to himself , the torch and the knlfo to guns and sifters. * * * Qunntroll left Missouri when ho Paw Price- quitting the fetnto. Ho might have remained to repent the story of Lawrence in every town in the west. In doing so lie reasoned that would bo but entailing sutTorlng on the women and children of his own stato--tho wives , sisters and sweethearts of his own men. Strange as It may seem , Quantrell was llio very man who wns actuated by such things as the welfare of women. Black ns ho was with the smoke of villages ho had laid waste ; red-handed as ho was with the blood of these whom ho had overtaken ; merciless as lie waste to the prayer of his victim for a moment's conference with God , Qmintvell was a knight among women and struck down the man who over questioned in his hearing the virtue of the sox. That was Ills only religion. Ho summoned some of his most trusted men one night at a house in Wnvcrly , Mo. To them he confided n part of his programme. In brief , it was this : Leave iMisfeouri and po to Kentucky , usinjj Kentucky as a base of operation , invade Pennsylvania and Maryland , and what ever success followed these movements would suggest further depredations. In a word , thp east came nearer knowing something of border war tactics than it over realized. Think of a few daredevils streaking Bunkur Hill monument with the blood of such men as Wendell Phillips ; of blowing up Fnneuil hull arid shooting down the trim and natty business men of the Hub as they entered their of- llccsl Think of a black ling flouting from Madieon Square , and a dozen freebooters - ors in Wall street , men who knew lion- to shoot to hill and who know how to spread consternation and get out of it alive. Think of another handful of the same sort looting the quiet Quaker city and while it wns 'fired In ninny places , the water supply cut off , mid panic spread ing ivlth the llmnes , the terror-stricken populace learning that Independence hall had boon destroyed. Enough Invaders would bo loft to bo operating in 'Washington at the same timo. Ono shot in Ford's theater star tled the world. "What would a handful of men led by Quantrell , with James Little as first lieutenant , Chatnm Ron- tck as second , Frank James , Jim Younger , John Baker , Bud Pence and Andy McGuire men accustomed to the torch , the knife , the rope , and ponies what would have been the result of a dash of such men into the capital , at the very moment when its inhabitants wore reading of Hunker Hill red with the blood of Phillips ; Fnnuol Hall in ruins ; Wall street wilder with fear than it over was over stocks if such a thing were possible ; Philadelphia in Jinnies ; Inde pendence Hall in ashes ! Suppose every man sworn to death and rapine in this crusade had fallen ; sup pose not one had escaped ; that Qunntrell liad shared a more terrible fate than JohnWilkcs Uooth. What would all that have availed when opposition WOE put down ; blood in Boston ; "robbery and riot in Now York ; arson and terror in Philadelphia ; assassination in Wash ington ! All on the sumo day and al most at the same hour. Call It by any name you will , it WIIH what came neai occurring. That is , it wns a pnrl of a dream , of a program , of something to mnko amends for what these men fan cied they and their people had Buffered , Forty-one men. rank and llle. wore in thti compact. They started. They got ai far lis Kentucky up In the mountains , They wore disguised as federal troops Qunntroll had a now and splendid fedora uniform. His men carried a silk and Bath American Hag. They sat down at tlu hearthstones of Homo of the good unlor men of Kontucicy , drank their whisky and made love ta the girls in the nami of the union.

This sort of thing , continued In Kor tuoky until it could continue no longoi t Of course , it had to come to an end. 1 11 came to light later on how this assahsl o and burner of the border had ( to to pi Q it ) played It upon Kentucky and the o Federals began to give chase. Thooi if ganl/.ation wns scattered. The phu y ro.ji'.vn nt. tnh'Jinj. or whatever itwii1 r po Invade the north with torch ami hull il was uevur carried out. Looking at from this distance the story has the ni of improbability , mndness , idiocy , c whatever you will. It wns a thing i terrible earnestness when it was coi col veil. Whore and how did Quantrell die ? In 1805. one week in Audi. Qiiantrol John HOSH , Payne Jones , William Huh and Frank James went out ahead i Clark county , Kentucky , to see whut tl chances were for getting out of the lines that were closing In upon thorn. There was a light every day. No use of repeatIng - Ing the story here. They were outnum bered and each man rode away for him self. Several of them mot the last night at a place of rendezvous. They had few words to i nv. Frank James spoke up and asked .what had become of Quan trell. No one answered. Frank James spoke ngaln : "Volunteers to find him. " A half dozen men responded iind in live minutes they were in their saddles riding in the night. The story of the finding of Quantrell and his death is thus given by one who knew whorcof ho spoke and whoso means of knowledge about Qtmn- troll were unquestionable : "Frank James dismounted at 2 o'clock in the morning und knocked upon a door. There wns the trailing of a woman's gar- moat , the circumspect trend of a watch ing woman's feet , the noiseless work of a woman's hand upon the latch , and Mrs. Wnkelleld , cool and courtly , bade the strange , armed men upon the threshold , enter. Just across on the other side of the room from the door a man Iny on a trundle-bed , watchful hut quiet. James stood over the bed , but could not speak. If one had cared to look into his eyes they might have been seen full of tears. Qunntrell , by the dim light of a single cnndlo , recognized James , smiled , held out his hand , and said to him gently , though a little re proachfully : " 'Why did you eomo buck ? The en emy are thick about here ; they are passing every hour. ' " 'To see if you were allvo or dead , captain. If the llrst , to save ! you ; if the ast , to put you in a grave , ' " 'I thank you very much , Frank , but why try to take mo away ? I am cold below the hips. I can neither walk , vide , nor crawl. I am dead and yet I am alive. ' "Frank James went to the door and called in Partner , Ross and Hulso. Quantrell recognl/.cd them all In his old , calm , quiet fashion , and bade them wipe away their tears , for they were cry ing visibly. Then Frank James , joined in Ills entreaties bv the entreaties of his comrades , pleaded with Quantrell for permission to carry him to the mount ains of Nelson county by slow and easy stages , each swearing to guard him hour by hour until ho recovered or die over his body , defending it to the last. Ho know that every pledge made by them would bo kept to the death. Ho felt that every word spoken was a golden word and meant absolute devotion. His faith in their affection was as steadfast and abiding as of old. IIo listened till they had done , with the old , staid courtesy of victorious guerrilla days , and then ho silenced them with an answer which , from its resoluteness , they know to be unalterable. ' 1 cannot live. I have run a long time ; I have come out un hurt from many desperate places ; I have fought to hill and have killed ; I regret nothing- . The end is close at hand. 1 am resting easy hero and will die so. You do not know how your devotion has touchen my heart , nor can you ever understand how grateful I am for the love you have shown for mo. Try to get back to your homes and avoid If you can the perils which beset you. ' "Until 10 o'clock the next day these men remained with Quanlroll , Ho talked with them freely of the past , but never of his earlier life in Kansas. Many messages were sent to absent friends and much good advice was given touching the surrondoi' of the remnant of the blind. Again and agnln he returned to thp subject of their earlier struggles in Missouri and dwelt long over the recol lections and the reminiscences of the two first years of guerrilla warfare. Finally the parting came , and these who looked the last on Quantrell's face that morning as they stooped to tell him ; ood-by looked tholr last on it forever. "Terrell had promised Qunntroll posi tively that ho should not bo removed from Wakeilold's house , but in throe days ho had either broken or forgotten this pledge. Ho informed General Pal mer , command Ing the Department of Kentucky , of the fact of the fight , and of the desperate charnoter of the wounded ollicor left paralyzed behind him , suggesting at the same time the advisability of having him removed to a place of safety. General Pallnor heat an ambulance under u heavy escort to Wakcliold's , and Quantroll suffering greatly and scarcely more allvo than dead was hauled to the military hos pital In Louisville and deposited there. Until the question of recovery had been absolutely decided against him but few friends were admitted into ills presence. If any one conversed with him at all the conversation of neces sity was required to bo car ried on in the presence of an olllcial. Mrs. Ross visited him thus n C'hrisiian woman and took some dying mes sages to loved ones in Missouri. Mrs. Ross loft him at 1 o'clock in the after noon , and at1 o'clock the next afternoon the guerrilla died. His passing away nftor a life so singularly litful and temp estuous was as the passing of a summer cloud. Ho had been asleep , and as he awoke ho called for water. A Sister of Charity nt the bedside put a glass to hie HIM , but ho did not drink. She heard him murmur once audibly , "Boys , got ready' then a long pause then one word more ' .Steady ! ' and then when she drew back from bendicg over the murmuring man she fell upon her kncoi : and prayed. Quantrell was dead ! " The Byes of Finn.
