READY TO SUKRDSDEK.
Most of Sitting Bull's Band Have Come
- In. .
- Rapid City, S. D., Dec. 22 Dispatches
to General Miles from Colonel Summer
to-day show that nearly all Sitting Bull's
followers, together with Big Foot's band,
have surrendered to him. Colonel Sum
mer's dispatch said this disposes of all
the Indians along the Cheyenne river,
and if - there are any more of Sitting
Bull's people out he does not know where
they can be. General . Brooks reports
the arrival of friendly Indians at theBad
Lands camp, and says the capture of
Sitting Bull's people and Big Foot's
forces will aid the efforts of the - friend
lies to bring in the hostiles. An Indian
scout reports' to General Brooke that
Short Bull's followers are anxious to
come in but are withheld by the threats
of Kicking Bear, one of Sitting full's
agents. -The scout thinks, however, the
friendlies will at last succeed in bringing
out Short Bull's followers.
A ' report reached General Miles via
Missoula, that two companies of soldiers
in the Yellowstone ' region were sur
rounded north 'of Cave hill by 500 or 600
Indians, and had sent a courier out with
a notification of danger to settlers.
General Miles says there are Indians in
that vicinity, but discredits the report
that the troops are hemmed in. He
has, however, ordered reinforcements
sent. - '
Hart's Ranch, (Near Bad Lands,) S.
D., Dec. 22. About 170 Indians from
Cheyenne agency are known to be com
ing to Short Bull and Kicking Bear's
people in Bad Lands. The forces of
General Carr and Colonel Summer are
now out to intercept them before they
reach Bad Lands, and the report of cap
ture is momentarily expected. Should
they make any resistance a fight will
take place. It is reported there are
about 500 Indians Bearing the hostile
camp, who are going to make a strong
effort to bring them in, but no success is
expected from this move. .Hump and
Big Foot, of the Cheyenne river indians,
are known to have gone into their agency,
so no assistance can be expected from
them. Should these Indians from the
north succeed in stepping through the
cordon established around the hostiles
and go into the Bad Lands an effort will
be made to keep them there. It is cer
tain there are now enough troops around
the Indians to compel, their absolute
surrender. . Two ' companies of the
Seventeenth infantry, comprising over
100 men, reported to General Carr to
day; also forty-six Cheyenne Indian
scouts reported, which .now brings the
strength of this command up to over 7:0
McCarthy Pleased at the Result.
Boulogne, Dec. 24. Justin McCarthy
arrived here yesterday. Regarding the
election in Kilkenny he says the result
surpassed his expectations. He be
lieved the defeat of Schully would have
the effect of disorganizing the opposi
tion and induce many waverers to come
out against Parnell. .

No Interest In tho Election. -
Knowing that a local election was go
ing' on in Grenada, Miss., I asked n col
ored man, -whom I found cutting wood
about four miles out of town, why he
wasn't at the polls.
"Wall, I doan' dun' take a heap of in
terest in dat lechshun," he answered. '
"But why?" .
"Right smart o' reasons why, sah.
S'po8inK I git tip to de polls an Mars
Smith says to me: 'Reuben, I want dem
f o' dollars yo' owes me fur bacon af or ,
yo' wote.' How's I gwine ter pay him,
"Sposin' I git np to de polls an' Mars
Jessup lays his hand on my shoulder an
says: 'Yo ole black Reuben, whar's dat
log chain yo' borrowed of mo las' fall to
haul sticks?" How's I gwine ter tell him
dat some nigger has dun stole it away
from me? "
"S'posm' I walk up to dat winder wid
a wote in my han', an Mars Roberts
calls out to all de folks, 'Heah's de man
what knows sunthin' Tjout dat yearlin I
lost last summer!' Does yo' reckon I
could git dat wote in arter dat?"
"An' s'posin'," he continued, as he
leaned on his ax, "dat I should git all
ready to wote an Mars Ben Walters, an' "
Mars Tom Davis an' Mars George Turner
should cry out at me: 'Whar's dem
chickens? Whar's dem hogs? Whar's dat
honey? Do yo dun reckon I could lift a
hoof to git out o' dat?"
"But you don't acknowledge that you
are guilty of stealing hogs, chickens,
honey and so forth?" I asked.
"I doan't 'zartly 'knowledge to nnthin,
sah, but Tze free to say dat dere has bin
some of de moas' presumptions times
around yere since do wah yo' eber heard
tell of, an' de furder I keep away from a '
white man de safer I feel." New York
An amusing instance of southern per
severance under difficulties recently came
to our ears. A young lady from Louisi
ana had heard much of Mrs. Leslie Car
ter's beauty, and fearful that she would
not see the new star in the south the en
terprising girl made friends with a
habitue of the Ladies' Athletic club,
which adjoins the Berkeley Lyceum,
where Mrs. Carter is rehearsing, and
coaxed the latter to find out if there was
any secret communication between the
buildings. Curiosity found a way, but
a very small one, and the girls crawled "
through it and obtained an entrance to -the
Berkeley while rehearsing was on. '
Miss Entete (this isn't her real name
eujoyed the breaking in more than she
did the rehearsal. She says Mrs. Carter
is being coached by Belasco, even to the
least inflection of her voice. . The ad
mirable points about her are her abun
dant blonde hair and her dressing. She
wore a neglige one of those famous ,
negliges of shimmering blue which
fitted her form like a mold. The two
girls staid through about half an hour of
"Did I say that right, Mr. Belasco?" and
"Is that the way you want me to do it?"
with which Mrs. Carter interlarded the
