THE OUTRAGED LABORERS.
Still Waiting for Honey from a Southern
Poktland,' Dec. 31. No change in the
situation in regard to the discharged
laborers. About 200 tickets for dinner
were given out to-day by the police
authorities. The contractors expect to
receive some money to-morrow.
Mayor De Lashmutt received a tele
grain from-President Dillon of the TJ. p.
saying; "The PdrtVmd & Puget Sound
road was being built under contract be
tween the Great Norehern company and
the Oregon Short Line by which each
party was to pay one half of the cost.
Th Short Line has overpaid its propor
tions of the expenses by a large amount!
and the whole amount of existing esti
mates under that contract are due from'
the Great Northern. Parties here are
trying to adjust matters. Hope to be
successful in getting satisfactory adjust
ment in a short time,'
A movement is" now on foot to supply
work for the men through the city board
of charities, yesterday on application
wes received for about sixty laborers to
work at different places in the country.
but they do not take to work with the
eagerness their destitution would seem
to warrant, and there is a prevailing
impression that the men will not work
as long as they are cared for at private
and public expense. ;.
THE BIG SLAUGHTER.
Particulars of the Fights Wherein the
Indians Were Wiped Out.
Washington, D. C. Dec. 31 General
Scholield this afternoon received the
following telegram from General Miles,
dated Hermosa S' V."' " - "
"General Brooke telesrraDhs as fol
lows: Colonel Forsythe says sixty-two
aeaa Indian men were counted on the
plain where the attempt was made rr
disarm Big Foot's band, and where the
ngnt began. On other parts of the
ground ; there were eighteen " more.
These do not include those killed in the
ravines,. where the' dead were seen but
not counted. Six were brought in badly
wounded, and six others were with the
party of twenty-three men and women
which Captain Jackson had. to abandon
when attacked by about 150 Brule In
dians from the agency. This accounts
for ninety-two men killed, and leaves
but a few alive and unhurt. The women
and children broke for the hills when
the fight commenced, and comparatively
few of them were hurt and few brought
in. . Thirty-nine are here of which
twenty-one are wounded. Had it not
been for the attack of the Brules an
accurate account would have been made,
but the ravines were not searched after
wards. I think this shows very little
apprehension from Big Foot's band in
the future. , A party of forty is reported
aB held by scouts at the head of Mexican
creek. These consists of all sizes and
the cavalry from Rosebud will bring
them in if it is true."
. General Miles adds; . "These Indians
under Big Foot were among the most
desperate there were thirty -eight of the
remainder of Sitting Bull's following
v - " " - O
that joined Big Foot on Cheyenne river
ana thirty that broke away from
Hump's following when he took hi
band and Sitting Bull's Indians to Fort
.Bennett, making in all nearly 160 war
riors. , Before leaving their camps on
Fort Cheyenne river, they cut up their
harness and broke their wagons and
started South for the Bad lands, evi
dently not intending to return; but to go
to war. .troops were placed between
them and the Bad Lands and they never
succeeded in" joining the hoetiles there.
All their movements were anticinatod
and their severe loss at the hands of the
Seventh cavalry may be a wholesome
lesson to the others. .

rxtt sea bow it could liave been avoi-'ed.
He sent a telegram to General Miles ex
pressing the opinion that he (Miles)
would be master of -the situation very
soon. He also expressed thanks to the
officers and men of the Seventh cavalry
for gallant conduct displayed by them.
The commissioner of Indian affairs
late this afternoon received a. telegram
from Special.. Agent Cooper, at Pine
Ridge, saying that in yesterday's fight
150 Indians were . killed : and - thirty
wounded and captured. He also states
that the Indians attacked a wagon-train
this (Taesdav) morning, two miles north
of the agency, killing one soldier of the
Officials of the Indian bureau and
those immediately concerned with In
dian affairs at the interior department
are very reticent this morning concern
ing the battle at Pine Ridge agency. In
dian Commissioner Egan, who has been
congrattilating himself on the quiet sup
pression of the Indians, was greatly
surprised at the dispatch of Indian
Agent Royer. He has practically turned
over the future policy of the administra
tion to Secretary Noble. The latter
laid the agent's dispatch before the
cabin-it this morning. On his return to
the interior department, Secretary No
ble would say nothing in relation to the
matter and would vouch no information
as to the measures to be taken.
Omaha, Dec. 30. Dispatches to the
Bee from its special correspondent re
garding yesterday's battle says the In
dians waited until the dismounted men
were off and the troops were gathered
in a group about the tepees saarehiug
for arms, and then suddenly, without
warning, threw down their blankets and
poured in a volley from their rifles.
The fact that the soldiers were grouped
in a compact form is an explanation of
the great execution by Indian builets.
It didn't take the soldiers but a moment
to recover from the surprise. Maddened
by the sight of their comrades -lying
dead and dying on the ground, the sol
diers poured in their fire with frightful
effect. Through the cloud of smoke a
buck could be seen running here and
there but there were not many of them
They were pursued and most of them
soon brought to a stop with bullets
Wounded Indians on the battle field
fought like fiends. Thev continued
shooting until killed, or their amiau
nition was exhausted. There were
many single handed ferocious combats
between wounded soldiers and Indians.
After the first few minutes, when the
Ciatling and Hotchkiss gun could be
used, they were turned loose on such
fugitives as were flying down the ravines.
It was a war of extermination now
with the troopers. -. It was difficult
to restrain them. Tactics were almost
abandoned. About the only tactics was
to kill while it could be done. Wlien
ever an Indian could be seen firing was
directed, and so it went on until not a
live buck was in sight.
Colonel Forsythe reached Pine- Ridge
agency this mornfng with the Seventh
cavalry and surviving prisoners. He
reports twenty-five of his men killed
and thirty-four wounded. -
They Just Stepped OfT the Train.
A tragedy happened on an east bound

of Paris Sunday afternoon. Amoug the
passengers on th train were two ne

pickers. They hud never been on a train
before, and seeing a great deal of cotton
in the fields 'they were passing detired
to get off and hunt work. So they
walked out on the platform and jump.-v.l

A Million Drops Into His Lap.
To be a millionaire for six years and .
not know it has apparently been the luc k
of Mr. A. P. Cunningham, of Washing
ton. Mr. Cunningham is a clerk in the
document room of the senate. Friday
night he was informed that his uncle,
John Cunningham, died in Australia six
years ago, leaving an estate valued at
$1,500,000. He is the sole heir of his
uncle, all his relatives who might have
come in for a share of the estate being
dead. Mr. Cunningham is the son of
Patrick Joseph Cunningham. The latter
had two brothers named John and Fran
cis, who were natives of Ireland and
came from Dundalk to America in 1826.
They went to Montreal, then to Phila
delphia and then to Australia.
In 1856 John returned to Philadelphia,
and in that year invited his brother Pat
rick, who then lived at Elliottviile, N.
Y., to visit him. Patrick attempted to
accept the invitation. There was an
Irish celebration at Buffalo, and he -started
to it intending to go on to Phila
delphia. The train on which he em
barked was snowed in between Dunkirk :
and Buffalo, and Mr. Cunningham, in
the trying times that followed, lost the
address of his Philadelphia brother.
Patrick lived in a number of cities, dy
ing in Pennsylvania' some years ago.
Now, after the lapse of years, his sou re
ceives the first definite information about
the uncle whom his father started out to
find more than thirty years ago. PhilsA

Fashion In the Cse of Soap.
That there should be a fashion in per
fumes is much easier understood than
that there should be one in soap, and
yet it is absolutely true that a soap
fancied a year ago is disliked now. At
one time we were all buying very highly
scented soaps, prettily enough named
after the flowers of the hothouse or
those of the field, done up in satin like
papers and tied with ribbons. A violent
reaction set in after this, caused un
doubtedly by a health craze, and car
bolic, sulphur and tar soaps, all singu
larly suggestive of hospital wards, had
the preference. Now it is the thing to
use a soap that is absolutely without
scent, the perfume that one desires
being gained from the large sachets that
envelop one's belongings, or from the
delicate odor that is sprayed about one's
neck or just back of one's ears.
How many people know that soap is
mentioned in the Bible? It is, though.
"For though thou wash thee with
natron and take thee much soap, yet thine
iniquity is marked before me." (Jeremiah
u, 22). New York Sun. . ' ,
Electricity Succeeding Gas.
In the same way as the horse is being 4
supplanted by the electric motor for
street car traction so gas is being super
seded by the electric light as a street
lnminant. There are still, however,
places where the confidence in the new
order of things is not yet absolute. A
case of this kind has occurred in Canada.
As the electrio light has been put in a
large portion of the city' of Montreal
the question arose. Wh;it is to be done
with the disused gas lamps which are
owned by the city? Some of the alder
men thought it. would be a good thing
to sell them for old iron, but one of the
"fathers of the city" suggested that the
lamps be put in store, "so that the city
would not be put at the mercy of the
electric light company," and carried his
point. New York Telegram.
Kicked to Death by His Gun.
Patrick Shea, an unmarried laborer,
25 years of age, was fooling with an old
musket, and finally applied a lighted
match to the nipple. . The gun was load
ed, and at once went off, but without
shooting any one. The shock, however,
knocked Shea down, and when picked
up he was dead. A doctor was sum
moned, who pronounced death to have .
resulted from nervous shock. Toronto
