upen them from behind a pile of rocks.
As the night was dark the number of
Indians was not known, but judging

but on their arrival they could find no
Indians. During the firing one of the
pickets was slightly wounded.

WHY WAS FORSYTHE REMOVED.
His Downfall Creates Amazement
Omaha, Jan. 5. The Bee has the fol
lowing from its staff correspondent at
Pine Ridge Agency, S. D., via Rushville,
The suspension announcement of Gen
eral Forsythe came like a flash and cre
ates amazement in some minds. Official
mouths are closed to all inquiries on the
subject. It will probably become known
to the general public, however, later on.
The unfortunate disposition of the
troops making it possible for them to do
cross-firing with the result of killing one
another t: constitutes a part and possibly
the greater part of the. foundation for
General Forsvthe's suspension.
- The seriousness of the situation here
is increasing. Short Bull, a leading hos
tile chief, who distinguished himself all
along during this trouble by never for a
moment looking to amicable settlement,
but Who has steadily Btuck to his lair in
the Bad lands and has now assumed
eommand of a great body of the hostiles,
last night told our spies that he would
take this agency if it cost every warrior
he had. Half-breeds here have been in
formed by friends and relatives whom
some of them have among the hostiles
that they had better immediatly move
their families a long distance from the
agency, as a great raid and massacre
was certain. Half-breeds are ehowing
us what they think of this information
by getting their families out of here
with a rush. Government Herder John
Dwyer and Issue Clerk Pugh have both
discovered through their Indian friends
of years standing that a raid and massa
cre have been fully decided upon and
maturely planned. General Miles is
thoroughly conversant with all those
facts, and himself says that our situation
is exceedingly critical. There are less
than 600 soldiers here.

Bold Move of a Railroad.
Salem, Jan. 5. At Silverton Sunday
the recently widened narrow gauge Ore
gonian railway gained vantage ground.
The city had refused to let them widen
the side track running on Water street
from the main line to the milL Bright
and early Sunday morning the railroad
compapy surprised the people of Silver
ton by putting a large force of men at
work widening the gauge, and before
the citizens realized what was going on,
the job was completed. It is expected
there will be litigation, as it is claimed
the right of way was never granted the
railroad to run on Water street.

PARNELL HAS MONEY.
That is Where he Holds the Advantage
London, Jan. 4. Mr. Parnell spent
the day at Avondale. He will leave to
morrow for Boulogne, accompanied by
Timothy Harrington, and will meet Mr.
O'Brien, on Tuesday. Mr. Justin Mc
Carthy, it is stated, has expressed his
willingness to retire in favor of O'Brien.
The anti-Parnellites are very anxious on
the subject of funds, beirrg pinched for
resources even for ordinary expenses,
while the evicted tenants are allowed to
shift as they may at the most trying
period of the year. But for this the
anti-Parnellites would pay little atten
tion to the Boulogne conference and go
right on with their claim to represent
the Irish national party. Parnell fully
understands his advantage, and it is
asserted will not consent to unlock the
funds until an arrangement is arrived
at. He is himself apparently well sup
plied with money, and his agent was
recently able to lodge 19,000 in court
to await the result of a suit regarding
some property. It is said that O'Brien's
efforts have been chiefly directed to
bringing about an understanding that
would liberate the nationalist use of
money in Paris and subscriptions from
America. ' Healy is not willing that any
concession should be made eveu for - this
object. HealY has independent means,,
and his less fortunate colleagues do not
agree with him.
ONE THOUSAND HOMELESS.
A Fire In New Jersey Leaves a Large
Number of Hungarians Destitute.
Bergen Point, N. J., Jan. 7. Fire in

contents.. The people live like animals,
existing mainly on rye bread and stale
beer. The houses were worth $5000.
All insisted upon staying in the burning
houses to save their property. The
police drove them out by force.
