IN FRIGHTFUL PERIL.
General Miles Thinks the Greatest
Battle of Indian History is at
Hand and May be Fought Today.
The Situation at Pine Ridge Agency
Proves to be Yery Alarming, but
the Troops are Prepared.
THE IKDUN WAR.
Strong Probabilities of a Great Battle
Omaha, Jan. 6. The Bee'g corres
pondent at Pine Eidge telegraphed that
all is one long continued round of excite
ment- here and an attack from the
Indians is momentarily expected.
As to the situation here, considered in
its entirety, indications are that the
greatest battle in Indian history is
almost at hand..
The appearance of every scout adds
new and strong support to these indica
tions that were only emphasized by- the
bloody affair on Wounded Knee.
General Miles believes exactly this
and has said some strong words : "With
out desiring to make the situation a
particle darker than it really is, for God
knows the truth is bad enough, every
thing constrains me to say that the dan
ger in which the Pine Ridge agencies
and the white populace stand at this
point and must remain until the crisis
is all over.is one of most fearful peril that
can well be imagined, and I say this not
for a moment forgetting and knowing
perfectly just what military protection
we have here."
Since Gen. Miles arrived he has re
ceived the most urgent admonition from
the administration to avoid further
bloodshed. Further bloodshed cannot
. Col. For'sythe has Been Relieved.
Washington, Jan. 5. The report of
the relief of Col. Forsythe of the com
mand of the seventh cavalry by General
Miles is confirmed at the war depart
The Fight is On.
, Omaha, Jan. 5. A special from Eush-
ville says : "Heavy cannonading is go
ingon north, of there this morning but
news of the battle is not yet received. -
The Omaha guards who volunteered
their services have been ordered to hold
themselves ready to move to the front.
Hay Cause M ore Trouble.
Orders telegraphed from military
headquarters to Captain Woods of the
15th cavalry to disarm Indians in the
Cheyenne and Araphoe country created
the greatest anxiety among settlers of
Oklahoma and on the borders of Texas.
The Indians are peacable enough and
the taking away of their arms will it is
feared have the effect of raising a spirit
of resistance whjch is now dormant.
THEY UNDERSTAND BLAINE.
Comments of the London Papers on the
Position Blaine Assmes. -"
London, Jan. o. The Pall Mall Ga
zette says: "Case for-arbitration in
the Behring eea dispute is so clear and
Lord Salisbury's offer so ample and the
feeling that America fovors arbitration
is so general and strong it seems neces
sary to look for Blaine's motives for his
warlike attitude elsewhere than in the
merits"1 of the case. It is clear that
Blaine speaks not for the nation, but
for his party. That he means io bluff
and plays to the anti-English galley."
Comments of the St. James Gazette.
The St. James Gazette says : "There
is no reason for anticipating a rupture
as Blaine's political party is at low
water mark and he resorts to the old
devices of "twisting the British lions

THE CENTRALIZATION IDEA.
11 a in or that the Union Pacific will Make
Omaha, Jan. 3. General Manager C.
F. Meek, of the Fort Worth and Colo
rado division, has resigned, to embark
in an enterprise of some kind in New
Mexico, in which he is interested with
J. S. Clarkson, late assistant postmaster
general. His successor has not yet been
selected. It has beeji officially given out
that the Union Pacific magnates have
under consideration the advisibility of
the Adams system of the maintainence
of a general manager and a full force of
general officers for each of the five grand
divisions of the system, and the position
of general manager will be abolished
and the management placed in the
hands of a general superintendent of
each division. It is not, of course,
known who will be made superintend
ents of the various divisions, and the
chances are that no appointments will
be made for several weeks yet. It has
not been announced yet how much of a
reduction in the force the new change
THE PUGILISTIC BATTLE.
An Immense Crowd AnticipatedSeconds
of the Two Pugilists.
New Orleans, Jan. 3. Interest in the
coming Dempsey-Fitzsimmons fight is
becoming intense, and indications are
that the largest crowd that ever atten
ded a mill in this city will be present at
Olympic Club rooms on the night of the
fight. The contest committee of the
club are doing everything in their power
to make the patrons of the club com
fortable, and no expense is being spared
to make the approaching battle the best
managed affair of the kind ever reported
in the annals of pugilism. A referee
will be chosen a couple of days before
the tight, and he will be a prominent
club member. From all reports, Dem
psey and Fitzsimmons are doing nicely,
and the latter refers to the fight with an
air of confidence that would terrorise a
less game and experienced man than
the Nonpareil. Much money has al
ready been wagered on the result, with
Dempsey allways the favorite. Jack
McAuliffe, champion light-weight, and
Denny Costigan will second Dempsey,
while Jimmy Carroll, the well-known
light-weight, Doc McConnell and " John
Griffin, the Massachusetts feather
weight, will do the honors for Fitz
simmons. SOUND TRADE DULL.
The Steamer -Queen Laid Off the Route
Until Business Increases.
Sax Francisco, Jan. 3. The Pacific
Coast Steamship Company's steamer
Queen was towed over to Sausalito to
day, where she is to lay up until busi
ness between here and Puget sound ports
increases. The Queen has been engaged
in the run between this city and Victoria
and way ports, but was taken off some
months ago, owing to the small amount
of freight that is being carried to and
from this city. She made her last trip
to the sound about a month ago, when
she took the City of Pueblo's place for
one trip, owing to the latter vessel being
seized by creditors. The Pacific Coast
Steamship company people say they
never knew trade between here and the
Sound to be so dull.
