tion of a railway man is carried out, the
Union Pacific will be in shape by the
time its joint traffic agreement with the
St. Paul and Omaha expires to run
train* over it* own tracks to Sioux City.
This gentleman say* he has learnt*) from
good authority that tracks which for
some time have been extending north
along the river through the East Omaha
Land company'* projierty are in reality
being built by the Cnion Pacith and
not by the land company, as has gen

tion of the Union Pacific, he says, to
continue the Hue to hioux City, and
from there reach 8t. Paul over the

WASMINCJTOM, Oct. 89.—Tba commia
sioner of Indian affairs has received re
ports from the Standing Rock agency In
South Dakota indicating that the "In
dian millenium ciaxe is increasing
among the feioux Indians. Great excite
ment over the matter prevails among
the Sitting Bull factiou of the Hioux,
who are anxiously and confidently
awaiting the coming of the millenium
next spring.
McLaughlin Makes a Report.
Agent McLaughlin, in a long report
to the department on the subject, says
the superstitious notiou comes from the
more southern Sioux and is doubtless
the same craze that has been agitating
the Hhoshones in Wyoming and the Ara
noes in the Indian territory. Sitting
Bull appears to be high priest, and the
latest apostle of this latest Indian ab
surdity. Sitting Bull's influence
as a disturbing element soeuis
to have increased during the last few
yearn and thl is partly accounted for,
the agent thinks, by the presence of a
woman from Brooklyn, Mr*. C. Weld on,
who went to the agency in June,
announcing herself as a metnl»er of Dr.
Bland's society. She has lavished nu
merous and costly gifts upon Sitting
Bull and this has made the chief more
insolent than ever.
(Jives Hitting Hull a lh*rscl«r,
The agent devotes a large portion of
the renort to Mr. Sitting Bull, giving
himanad reputation. He says he is a
man of low cunning, devoid of a single
manly principle in his nature, or an
honorable trait of character but on the
contrary is eapable of inciting others
(those who believe in his powers5 to do
any amount of mischief. He is a lolyg
auust. liN-rtine, habitual liar and active
obstructionist and a great uh*ta. le in
the wav of the civilization of thew
pie and be is totally devonf—rtf a (single
noble trait of character." The ofiirials
of tin* Indian bureau here look upon the
situation as neriou». but think they can
bridge orar the trouble.
