ONE SHARP FIGHT.
Indiana Attack a Government Train.
A Fight Ensues.
St. Louis, Jan. 6. A special from
the camp near 'Wounded Knee creek, S.
D., gives the particulars of another en
gagement which took place at the point
yesterday morning. A detachment of
thirty men were sent out from the camp
to meet a wagon train with supplies for
the camp, and when ten miles out the
wagons were found beseiged by a band
of 100 Indians. On seeing the troops
approaching the redskins scattered but
immediately returned to attack on find
ing the small number of men in the
detachment. A fight ensued resulting
in wounding one soldier and killing and
woun'ding several Indians. The exact
number has not been ascertained as the
redskins . carried their dying and
Indian Chiefs Come in for Consultation.
Washington, Jan. 6. Gen. Schofield
has received the following telegram
from Gen. Miles, dated Pine .Ridge, S.
D., Jan. 5th : "In answer to a communi
cation 1 sent to the hostile camp yesterday,-saying
five men could come in and
learn-what I expected them to do, the
following came in : Big Road, He Dog,
Little Hawk, Jack Red Cloud and Big
Hawk. The prospects at present are
favorable that the whole camp will sur-
render, but I do not wish to anticipate.
There are no changes in the condition of
May Exterminate One Another.
Omaha, Neb., Jan. 6. A special from
Pine Ridge says, everything points to a
battle between hostiles and friendly
Indians who desire to come into the
agency. The older Indians want to
come in but the young bucks insist on
figtrting. ' v -. ' . ' '
IS NOT A THIRD TERMER.
Governor Hill Intimates . That be Will
not A gain be Governor of New York.
Albany, K. Y., Jan. 6. Governor Hill
in his annual message to the legislature
this morning, says : "In entering upon
my seventh and last year of my services
as chief executive of the state, I will not
affect to conceal my gratification at the
fact that for the first time during the
past seven years the popular branches
of the legislature is in political accord
with the executive."
The first clause of the above is quoted
as an official announcement that he will
not be a candidate for the third term.
The Governor calls upon the legislature
to provide for a re-enumeration of the

General Noble Opposes Turning tbe In
diana Over to the War Department.
Washington, Jan. 6. A cabinet meet
ing to-day-considered the Indian ques
tion, especially with reference to General
Miles' proposition to relieve the Indian
agents of the charge of the agencies near
the scenes of the present trouble, and
replace them with officers of the army.
Secretary Noble is known to be earnestly
opposed to such a plan, and its accom
plishment is therefore a matter of doubt
TWELVE MINERS KILLED.
Terrible Accident in a California Mine.
San Andreas, Cal., Jan. 6. An acci
dent occurred to-day in the shaft of the
Utica mine at Angeles camp which re
sulted in the death of ten or twelve men.
A skip with the' miners aboard was
coming up for dinner when within 150
feet of the top of the shaft the cable
parted at the reel letting men, skip and
150 feet of cable fall a distance of 450
feet. . ' '

Squire arrived from Washinsfton this
morning to remain during the senatorial

legislature are on the ground and the

orously. Squire has a good lead but
probably not a majority. The legislature

An Indian Shot at Colfax.
, Colfax, Washington. Jan. 6. Bones,
a son of the chief of the Palouse Indians
was shot by the city marshal last night
while attempting to escape, while under

doubtful. . ' -
KING KALAKAUA'S MOVEMENTS.
He Will Return Home After His South-
era California Trip.
San Fkvncisco, Jan. 4. King Kalak
aua and the gentleman who accompanied
him on his southern tour, will return to
this city on Friday next. It Has been
rumored that his majesty, very shortly
after his arrival here, will leave f or Hon
olula direct. It has been learned from
good authority that the United States
steamer Charleston has been ordered at
once to the dry dock at Mare Island to
have her bottom cleaned, and that she
is to be immediately afterward put in
readiness to sail for Honolula, taking
the king there as a passenger.- '
While no official orders have been
issued as yet, said Consul McKinley
last night, it is expected that his majesty
will leave this city for Honolula on the
Charleston about January 16th, that is,
about a week after his return from the
south.- - .

THE INDIAN SITUATION.
The Hostiles are Worked Into
and Will Die Fighting.
Chicago, Jan.' 4. The Inter-Ocean'
Pine Ridge special says : Last night was
one of feverish excitement at the agency.
For the first time the squaw men and
half breeds were alarmed an'd remained
up all night, fearing an attack before
morning. The agency, however, is' too
well guarded to permit any large force
to approach very close without discovery.
Friendly spies say there are a number of
warriors in the enemy's camp who have
worked themselves up to a condition of
frenzy similar to those who committed
suicide at the Wounded Knee battle.
They say they want to die and are going
to die while killing white men.
General Allies has his troops all around
the enemy and could throw them all in
any day and have a tremendous battle,
but could not prevent small bands from
escaping, which would have to be fol
lowed up by the soldiers and which
would place the lives of many settlers in
&J3gerJv- By holding the troops until"
much larger force can be thrown around
the Indians the trouble can be confined
to the reservation. It is expected the
end cannot be reached without one or
more battles. . General Miles has sent a
letter to the hostiles asking for a hear
ing. The indians tore the letter to frag
ments and said : "We want no treaty;
we are here to fight." The Indians, in
the hostile camp number over 4000 men,
women and children, and represent
every agency in the two Dakotas.
Union Pacific Salaries
Along the Line.
San Francisco, Jan 4. The tele
graphic news of the big cuts in the salar
ies of Union Pacific officials naturally
give little pleasure to the local offices.
In addition to the reductions mentioned,
the salaries of the general agent at
Omaha and some of his assistants have
also been cut. This step on the part of
the new Gould regime is not calculated
to increase its popularity, which com
menced to wane as soon as the discharge
of . employes was inangurated. At the
city offices no notice of the cut affecting
local men has yet been received.
The Fight on Sunday.
'Omaha, Jan. 4. A Bee speeial from
Gordon, Neb., says: Two scouts have
just arrived, and confirm the report
made last night of the battle north of
this place. The fight was between the
Indians and a detachment sent out by
General Miles from Eosebud agency to
bury the dead Indians killed at the
Wounded Knee battle. . The hostile
Sioux, objecting to the burial of their
dead by their palefaced foes, opened fire
and, after desperate and sharp firing of
the Hotchkiss guns, were forced to re
treat to the protection of friendly ravines,
No deaths are reporred.
Why a Good Fighter Was Removed.
Omaha, Jan. 4. A special from Pine
Kidge says that this afternoon, in ac
cordance with instructions telegraphed
from Washington, General Forsythe was
relieved of his command of the Seventh
cavalry, pending investigation of the
Wounded Knee a.Tair. Major W"hite-f-ides
succeeds to the command of the
regiment. - Whitesides snys the affair
was an accident ; that a few moments
before fighting began the squaws were
merrily pelting the searching party with
bundles of rags. The accepted reason
ror t orsytne s renel is the manner in
which his troops were placed in the
fight. ; - -

London, Jan. 6. The St. James Gaztle, .

unless it is to make Behring sea a war

obviously means to try more bounce for
the sake of making political capital.
We are convinced, however, that Ameri
cans will not support him. It is imper
ative to arbitrate matters in dispute."
The Globe says it attributes the fric
tion to "Blaine's bragging spread eagle
ism," and it is of the opinion that in
view of possible, though unlikely Ameri
cans displaying force in the Behring sea,
Great Britian - ought instantly to
strengthen her Pacific, squadrons. The
