The tend It ion of the , Hostllea at Pine
Washington, Jau.8. The situation
as summed up at the interior depart
ment to-day is about as follows : There
are in all about 20,000 Sioux Indians,
men, women and children on the north
ern reservation. Of this number 16,500
are accounted for, as they are living on
reservations in peace and not taking
any park in the present disturbances.
This leaves about 3500 men, women and
children to face 000 men now - under
commander of General Miles. The hos
tile camp is located - seventeen miles
north of the agency . and a cordon of
troops surround it, with the exception
of the south side, the object being to
drive them into the reservation. There
is constant communication between the
hostile camp and the agency. The hos
tiles are well supplied with beef, but
they have no sugar or coffee, except as
they are supplied by friCndlies. While
the situation is regarded as hopeless for
the Indians, yet it is believed they have
no intention of surrendering. It is pre
dicted by some who are on the ground
that there will be a battle on Sunday or
Monday. When the hopelessness of fight
ing against such odds is pointed out.
The only explanation given is, "the
Indians are crazy." From reports re
ceived at the interior department, the
situation is believed to be intense and
people at the agencies are very much
A SUSPICIOUS JOURNAL.
The St. James Gazette Thinks Booth
Should Not Have Control of Funds.
London, Jan. 8. The St. James Gazette,
which is publishing the results of an in
quiry into the history and methods of
the Salvation Army, with a view to dis
couraging public subscriptions to the
"Darkest England" fund has unearthed
two deeds dated in 1878, which give Gen
eral Booth complete control of the organ
ization and make it practically his private
property. They endow Booth with auto-
cratic power pver the order and all
its branches, and give him authority to
appoint his own successor ; also to give
away, lease or sell any ,or all of tlje army
property witnout accounting to anyone,
The Gazette points out 'the danger of en
trusting large sums to any man, however
honest in nis views, who is a fanatic,
with absolute power to dispose of money
without regard to judgment of donors.

LIVELY TIMES AT NORTH DALLES.
The Early Spring Promises Big Improv
ments Railroads to Come In and
Center at North Dalles.
It is now an assured fact that the
Hunt system of railroads will be built
from Wallula Junction to Portland early
this spring, the bonds having been
taken in Europe. The road will be built
on the north side of the river, and will
pass near the present site of the shoe
factory. The Farmer's and Goldendale.
road will also be pushed to completion
early this year and North Dalles will be
its terminal point.
Mr. O. D. Taylor and S. L. Skeels leave
