SITTIJTG BULL'S GHOST.
New. Fhase of the Indian Messiah Craze.
-The Ghost Dance Kegins Again.
Minneapolis, Dec. 20. A Tribune
special from Pierre, S. D., says a ranch
man in to-day from up the Bad river,
reports the hitherto semi-civilized tribe
of Two-Kettle Sioux began a wild ghost
dance night before last. Some of the
bucks when returning home, claimedto
have seen a white figure on the top of a
bluff. One of them said it was Sitting
Bull. The alleged phantom motioned
them to follow and glided from hill to
hill in direction of the Bad Lands. The
ranchman says the Indians accepted
this as a proof that Sitting Bull is the
Messiah, and that he was. beckoning
them to follow. The ghost dance is the
consequence, and the ranchman says
the Indians as far down as Willow creek
are affected. If the story is correct it is
a serious affair. ,

It is now a moral certaintv that verv

people must not be surprised if, at least.

Dalles are men who are quietly working

The struggle of the warring factions of
the home rule party for one possession

it was a magnificent success;
For a State Flower.
To the Editor of the Chronicle
I see the Oregonian asks for sugges
tions as to a flower for Oregon. Allow
me to name the "Ilex-leaved Mahonia,"
or Oregon grape as it is called ; i is cer
tainly beautiful in flower with
its rich cluster of golden blossoms
and then the foliage with its varying
shades, from the deepest green
to crimson, is always a thing of beauty,
especially as it is evergreen in character.
The Scarlet Currant, which has been
selected by correspondent, would only
represent a part 'of the state, as it is
rarely if ever found east of the Cascade
mountains. As an Eastern Oregonian
would object to its choice. - The Ma
honia, on ihe other- hand,' brightens
many spots the whole length of the land.
The Diamond flouring mill was tem
porarily closed - down last Saturday,
on accouut of the head miller's sickness.
Mr. Curtiss expects to start up the mill
in a few days. - He has a good supply of
flour and cracked wheat on hand.
The churches of the city were 'well
filled yesterday.' At the Congregational
Sunday, School Prof. Barrett made some
lively remarks which were well received
by the scholars and teachers.
The Dalles Ice Company is the only
one so far that has put up ice enough to

What SUsa Potter 11 OK Don.
Miss Beatrice Potter is at present one -
of the most famous and talked of wom
en in England. - She is a superbly beau
tiful woman, is of aristocratic connec
tions and owns a large fortune in her
own right. For several years past she
has been a devoted pupil and disciple of
Herbert Spencer. Having read and heard
all manner of grewsome stories of the
horrors endured by women in sweaters'
shops, she dressed herself in the odious
rags worn by that class, went down into
the City, found work, and for two months .
lived and labored side by side with
those miserable white slaves of the
Few knew her secret, and so cleverly
were her plans carried out that .neither
employers nor employes evar suspected
her identity. When she had thoroughly
informed herself on all minutuB relating
to the criminal tyranny exercised by the
sweaters, and on the hideous lives led
by their female victims, she threw off
her disguise, returned to the West End, .
gave exhaustive newspaper interviews
and appealed for legislative interference.
So strong and unanswerable were her
arguments, seconded by her own experi
ences, that parliament discussed ways
and means for righting this great wrong.

Will Women Combine?
Will women, combine is a question
that some of the foremost women in the
United States are considering with ref
erence to representation in a federation
at the World's fair." The strongest fe
male organization in the world is said
to be the Women's Christian Temper
ance union, which has auxiliaries all
over the country and a membership of -200,000.
The King's Daughters, includ
ing all the circles and subcircles, num
ber 135,000. There are 100,000 women in
the Ladies' Relief corps, the Suffragists'
are about 75,000 strong, the Kindergar
ten association 50,000, and the working
girls' societies in New York alone have
an army of 130,000. Here is a league of
more than half a million women banded
together for mutual and general good,
to which, under wise legislation, there
should be nothing but success, advance
ment and prosperity. And yet the ques
tion has been raised in Europe and
America, Will . women combine? Ex

Pretty Parisian wedding gowns for
the season are artistic and beautiful in
the extreme. The richest are composed
of the new brocaded satins, on whose
lustrous surface branches of orange blos
soms, white lilacs, snow drops, or . the
popular fleur-de-lis are strewn. Silver
embroidery or brocade is seen on several
Worth dresses. When a plain fabric is

thickly with pearls, a la Dorothy Ten

there are ruches of white ostrich tips or
of lace, thick, close frills of white mous
seline de soie, or handsome silver and
pearl passementeries. Often the long
polonaise is of brocade, and the under
skirt cf embroidered lace or muslin. Or
a plain skirt with bodice waist has u
