telegram from General Miles. Dated
Pine Ridge, Jan.2. "There is a report
from the Iodian camp that Red Cloud
and Little Wound are determined to come
in with their followers. Their lives
have been threatened by the hostiles,
who are determined to go to war. There
is also a report from the same source of
an engagement between the Indians
and cavalry, in which a number of Sol
diers were killid and some Indians shot
If this is correct it ia probably on the
line of White river. General Brooke
now has command of that line and will
give all necessary directions.
General bchoneld said to a reporter
after this telegram was given out that
nothing additional had been received
up to the present time "I still have
hopes that we shall yet be able fo get
the Indians into camp withont a fight,
The forces now in the field . under com
mand of General Miles are about. 8,000
officers and men."

Loss of Half a Million Dollars No Lives
New Ioek, Jan. 3. A fire last night
broke out in the Fifth avenue theatre
about fifteen minutes after the perform
ance closed, destroying property to the
value of about half a million dollars.
A careful estimate of the loss by

$567,000.. Insurance more than half the
value. Prof. Herman says the fire
started m the "supes" room of the Fifth
avenue theatre. Herman's theatre
found not to be badly damaged after all,
The greatest loss is by water, and will
noi exceed ?zou,uuu. A. rumor was
started that some lives were lost, but a

It was not till after six o'clock that
the hrg was under control.

; Pine Ridge Agency, S. D. Jan. 1 The
Upper Brules are now in open rebellion.
After two months of unrest and uncer
tainty the Sioux have finally ehown
their hand. Three thousand of them,
under the leadership of such cunning
fellows as Big Rod, Kicking Bear, Little
Wound, Short Bull and Jack Red Cloud,
and even old Red Cloud himself, have
turned upon the government. Ameri
can Horse is .now the only remaining
loyal chief, but his following is small
and it would make no difference whether
he counseled war or peace. Squads of
Indians have been leaving for the war
path to-day. Under cloak of the heavy
snow storm, which has been raging
since early morning, they started off
north, . but their destination is not
known. It is thought, however, that
they will make for the Bad Lands
or vicinity of the old Spotted Tail reser
vation. Troops have been ordered to in
tercept them. Depredations have al
ready begun on ranches. Scores of houses
along White river have been burned and
cattle run off and killed. A scout came
in late luesday night from the vicinity
of White river, near the mouth of Hay
creek:, and reported that three cattle
men left their ranches after they heard of
the engagement between Forsythe's
troops and Big Foot's band, and they
have not returned yet. It is feared thev

from the agency.
General Brooke has ordered 100,000
rounds of ammunition from Omaha
lhe panic in railroad towns in the
vicinity of Pine Ridge agency is inde
scribable. Settlers are pouring into vil
lages on foot, in wagons, and on horse
back. Many of them have abandoned
their stock and household goods, while
others have brought cattle and ponies
with them. Some refugees who traveled
through the blizzard yesterday were
badly frozen, and many women and chil
dren are ill from exposure. At Chadron
Alany, Rushville, Oelrichs, Buffalo Gap
and V alentme the panic amounts to
stampede. At Rushville guards are on
day and night. Refugees and citizens
have made for the school houses, armed
men patrol the streets at night and
sentinels have been posted along the
road leading to Pine Ridge. The danger
of Chadron, which is the biggest town in
Nebraska, west of Fremont, has caused
the citizens to organize themselves for
the defense of the town. The savages
burned the Catholic mission near
Chadron early yesterday. General
Brooke will send a company of soldiers
to guard the town as soon as reinforce
ments' reach him. General Miles, at the
head of the Sixth Cavalry, left Chadron
for Pine Ridge at 4 o'clock vesterdav
Companies of the Eighth and Ninth
cavalry at Rosebud agency have also
been ordered to Rushville. It has been
snowing furiously all day, and the
temperature is rapidly growing colder,
One battalion of the Seventh cavalry
left for the west yesterday morning to
prevent the Indians retreating on old
trails south of the Black Hills. One
troop also acted as an escort to General
Miles, who came back with them from
Couriers are in from General Carr's
command saying he is coming from
White river, and was within fifteen
miles of here last night. A scout who
came in Tuesday night said that Colonel
Sumner and Captain Wells are west of
him, forming a line to the north of the
Indians. This, with the troops from
the Seventh, should confine them to the
reservation. All was quiet here during
the night, bat rumors are out that the
Indians would make an attack before
morning. By 4 o'clock it was raining
hard, and by noon yesterday a genuine

SENATOR FABWELl'S DENIAL.
Says he Did not Blake Anything Out
, the Silver fuol.
Chicago, Jan. 1. The recently pub
lished story regarding the alleged silver
pool mentioned the name of Senator
Farwell in connection with it. In an
interview to-day Farwell said he never
bought a dollar's worth of silver pre
vious to the silver legislation last summer.
While he was told others who were en
deavoring to make sonieting out of the
anticipated fluctuation in price, he
steered clear of it. He knew, of course,
the price would go up, and when some
friends in London cabled for their views
he answered to the best of his knowledge.
He received , no profit directly or indi
rectly through the speculations of
friends, Regarding the silver pool, he
said he had been informed a pool did ex
ist, but this did not come to him until
long after silver legislation. There was
not a hint expressed concerning the
pool while the matter was before cong
ress. The senator denied flatly he was
in any way concerned in the Bateman
failures, or. that he speculated in silver.
QUAKER AND JAP.
A Philadelphia Girl Marries the Man of
Her Choice. ;
Philadelphia, Penn., Jan. 1. Miss
Maria Elkinton, the accomplished
daughter of Joseph S. Elkinton, a promi
nent member of the Society of Friends,
and Inazo Nitobe, a young Japanese,
were married this morning at the
Friends' meeting house. Fourth and
Arch streets. Every eflbrt had prev
iously been made by Miss Elkinton's
relatives and friends to prevent the con
summation of the union. 'Argument
and persuasion, however, were alike
unsuccessful in making the young lady
swerve from the man of her choice, who
had, out of regard for her, become a
member of the Society of Friends.
Mr. Nitobe is about 30 years of age,
and is of high rank in his native coun
try. For six years he has been travel-"
ing through Europe and America, study
ing to fit himself to occupy an important
government oflice. Mr. and Mrs. Nitobe
will leave in a few days for San Fran
cisco en route to Japan.
NEW "SPIRIT LEVELS."
An Ingenious Device to Circumvent
St. Paul, Jan. 1 . An ingenious
Minneapolis man has invented and
placed on sale what he calls a "spirit
level" and with it proposes to knock
out prohibition in Iowa and the
Dakotas. The - "level" consists of a
small box, the ends of which are sealed,
but a gentle punch breaks the paper and
therejs ravealed on one end a round
hole that will receive a lead pencil and
on the other end, when broken, appears
a cork. The thirsty purchaser who pulls
gently on this brings to view a long vial
filled with brandy or old rye or anything
that may be desired, provided the
assortment of "spirit levels" in stock is
large enough. Holes in the side admit
to view an air bubble, which verily
makes the affair a spirit level, albeit not
a very accurate one. Saloons" are doing
a land office business in "levels." .
