News from All: Parts of the World. SPECIAL TO THE CHRONICLE. THE OUTRAGED LABORERS. Still Waiting for Honey from a Southern Corporation." 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. . v " (Signed.) Miles." . Oenernl Scl.oCel.l .esiid the fiVht was n most v.nfvr!.ur.al3 oocurr snce, but he di l 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 advance guard. 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 Texas. Pacific, train about two miles east of Paris Sunday afternoon. Amoug the passengers on th train were two ne groes seeking employment as cotton 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 off. The train was stopped and backed down to where they were lying. One was crushed and the other was badlv injured. San Antonio Express. - ' Trick of u Sturgeon. A strange accident occurred on the steamer Columbia near Reedert landing a few days ago. John Bernard, a stur geon fisherman, was' hauling in a huge fish, when it suddenly took a run, and be fore he could get clear of the line, he was dragged overboard and came near (frown ing before assistance could reach, him Bernard is a brother to the man who was run down and drowned from a fishing boat by the steamer S.

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 delphia Record. ' 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 Empire. . .
