SITTING Bl'Lt'S DEATH.
How the Old Chief Fell Bravery 'of the
Denver, Col., Dec. 16. A news courier
from a camp near Daly's ranch has the
following from Rapid City, Dakota :
A rancher has just arrived in creat
haste to our commanding officer and re
ports a command of cavalry was attacked
and two officers and fifty men killed, but
the Indians repulsed with heavy losses.
The number of Indians killed is not
known. . The. Indians were put ..to rout.
Ihe report is not authenticated. It is
not known whose command . it was
probably that of Major Turner, of the
Sixth cavalry, and his three troops of
140 men, Our command marches to their
St. Facl, Dec. 17.-2:00 a. m., The
Pioneer Press has just received from
Standing Rock agency by courier to. Bis
marck, the first authentic account of
yesterday's battle that has been received.
The facts regarding the police and sol
diers has been already given. The police
were in camp over night near Sitting
Bull's camp, and in the morning under
command of Bull Head, the lieutenant,
and Shave Head, first sergeant, went in
and made the arrest. Sitting Bull ex
pressed his willingness to go with them,
but said he wanted to get ready first.
The two leaders went with him into his
tent after he had ordered his horses to be
gotten readyi While the old chief was
getting ready, two bucks wrapped in
blankets entered the tepee, and throwing
off their- blankets opened " fire on the
police, "Sitting Bull's wife set up a howl
outside, which seemed to be a signal for
an assault.' In the fight which followed
Red Tomahawk killed Sitting Bull.
Many of Sitting Bull's followers were
killed and Bull Head and Shave Head
are' desperately wounded.; and will un
doubtedly die. The- police - were sur
rounded, but the military arrived, and
after an hour and a half of hot skirmish
ing the Indians took to flight and disap
peared in the timber.' Two police were
killed and two mortall v-wounded. Seven
hostiles were killed, at least.; ." , - i
St. Paul, Dec,.I6.JL89QToday'8 ad
vices Jrom Standing Rock;, are ,to ,the
effect that the arrest of Sitting Bull was
decided upon - by agent McLaughlin
when he heard, on Sunday, that the
wily old chief and his followers were
about to set out for Bad Lands. - Once
there it would be a long time and there
would be much hard fighting before any
of the hostiles could be taken or starved
out. Therefore, orders "were given the
police and they set out Sunday night,
the troops following. By early morning
the police reached the camp, with the
cavalry three miles in the rear, and the
infantry much farther away. On reach
ing the camp the police found the camp
ers almost ready to move. - Sitting Bull
, was seized, placed under arrest, but not
bound, and the police quickly started
for the agency. But the followers of the
old man quickly got over their -surprise,
and a sharp fire was at once opened on
the police. The police r responded in
kind and several fell from their horses,
among the number Sitting Bull and his
son, Black Bird. The old medicine man
had tried to direct matters for a time by
loudly shouting his orders, but lug-fall
upset the hostiles. They at once ral
lied, however, and surrounded the po
lice, who fought bravely and well, but
would soon have been overpowered had
riot the cavalry who had been sent for,
arrived on the scene. The police were
at that time almost out of ammunition
and were fighting hand to hand, but the
sight of the soldiers and the roar of the
machine guns alarmed the hostiles, and
the fled up Grand river.
The cavalry followed but a short dis
tance and then' returned to camp, and
took possession of the bodies of Sitting
Bull and his son.
Four police were killed and three
wounded, and it is thought altogether
that eight of the hostiles were killed.
Crow-foot, the twelve-year-old son of
Sitting Bull, and a number of others
Sitting Bull's followers, when thev
fled up Grand river, left behind them all
their tents and families, which will be
turned over to the agency. After goin;
a short distance up the river the fleeing
redskins scattered and went off in all
directions through the country toward
Bad Lands. The soldiers are located ull
around the Bad Lands and the Indians
will have but little chance to get a few
ranchers that are located in that dis
trict. ' People around Bismark and in
neighborhood of Standing Rock agency
are greatly wrought up over the killing,
and express fear for the outcome. They
think the followers of Sitting. Bull will
attack scattered settlers along the fron
tier, and kill whom they can.
