A Full Description of the Battle. From
. - ..the Indians' Standpoint.
Washinotos, -Feb. IL The Indian
conference was closed today, and the In
dians will start home Friday. The. fea
tures of today's talk was the story of the
fight at. Wounded Knee. Turning Hawk
, . , At a given time when the men had, de
livered up their guns they were separa
ted from their families and .taken to; a
certain spot. ' A crazy man, a young
man of very bad influence, fired his gun,
killing an officer. The ' other Indians
began: drawing their knives, although
men were exhorted from all sides to de
sist, and firing began immediately on
the part of the . soldiers. All men, . who
were in a bunch, were killed right there.
Those, who escaped the first fire got . into
a ravine, and as they went along the ra
vine for a long distance were pursued on
all sides by the soldiers and shot down.
The women had no; fire arms to - fight
with. They were standing off at a dif
ferentplace and when the . firing began,
these of .the men who escaped the first
volleyjwent in one direction, up in the
ravine, and the women in another,
through an open field. Some of them
met the same fate as the men.
American Horse said .. 4 "' .'
- When the firing commenced, the peo
ple who . were standing immediately
arOun the young man who fired the first
shot were killed, and then the soldiers
turned their guns on the women, who
were in the lodges, standing there under
the flag of truce. Of course, as . soon as
they fired upon they fled. There was a
.woman with an infant in her arms killed
as she almostjtouched the flag Jof truce.
Bight, near the flag another, was shot
.down.;. Her child jiot knowing, the
mother was dead, was still nursing, and
that was a very sad sight. ' The women,
as the-were fleeing with their babies on
tbeir toacks,--were killed together, ' and
the wdraen heavy with -child were also
killed. if After most of the - Indians, had
been killed, theory- was . made that all
those sot killed or wounded should come
forth, and they would be safe. ..The little
boys, who were not wounded, came out
of theijr places of refuge, and as soon as
they ciine in Bight a number of soldiers
surrounded and butchered them. ; "
Commissioner' Morgan heri? said to the
interpreter::;-1 tJ cl '- ' '
: i;,I wish yoit would say ;'to- him 'that
these : are very serious charges -to make
again she,army.: -1 gjg, jnat:-jran j any
statements that are not absolutely true,
and I want, anyone here that feels : the
statements, are two strong. to correct
them." .:. . . .. . .... . V...- .- . .-i
"Of course,' replied American Horse,
"it would have been all right if onlv the
nien were killed, but the fact of the kill
ing of the women; and more especially
the young boys - and girls, who are to
make the future strength of the Indian
people we ieel -very serionslv." - ''Does
American-Horse knowvthese things of
ms now. personal . knowledge, or has . he
been told, them?" asked the commis
sioner, "I was not there at the time, but
Derore xne Dunai oi the oodles l aid go
there with some Indian police and manv
people from the agency, and ' we - went
through the battlefield aud saw where
the bodies were from the track of blood,"
was the reply. -. .. .

pastor of the Episcopal, church at Pine
.Ridge, among other, things, said : . . .. ;
Mjiichha,been; said?, about the1, good
spirit with . which, the.' members !of . the
heventh cavalry went' into' that action.
It has been said the desire. to avenge
Custer's death was entirely 'absent from
their minds. -- In coming' towards Chic
ago in company with -General ..Miles I
talked with his own scout- who was al
most killed because he was compelled to
fly with :the Indians, being fired upon by
men whom be tried to serve and -help.
He , told me that after -he had recovered
from his fright and succeeded in getting
amongst the soldiers, after they all got
in fromkillirig the Indians, an officer of
mgn. ranic, he did not know who, came
to him and said'.- ' "Now we have aven
ged Custer's death',", and the Scout said
to h1ra-,- "Yes, but yon had every cause
to fight for your livest that day. i These
poor Indian people did not have that.op
portunity to protect their -people and
fight for themselves. If this is an judi
cation of the spirit of a number of . men
m that company, L am sure the Seventh
cavalry did not go there with the kind
est of motives and simply to bring those
poor people back." ; ' ; -' -'- '' ;

THE FOSSIL COAL MIXES.
Capital iats "Wanting; Information The
Snrvey Much Needed.
Now that the portage railroad is as
sured we would again urge upon our
citizens the necessity for an immediate
location of a railroad line between here
and the coal mines near Fossil. Through
the courtesy of Mr. Norton we read sev
eral letters from prominent old country
capitalists, practical coal and iron men
and they all ask "for information giving
an approximate idea of the engineering
difficulties of the country to be traversed
by the railroad from the mines to the
point of water transit." -
' The above quotation is a literal ex
tract from one of the letters dated Janu
ary 27, 1891, received at Arlington yes
terday, and all the letters show a warm
interest in the prospects of this part ' of
Eastern Oregon and the writers pledge
themselves to invest just as soon as the
matter can be put into shape in a busi
ness like manner. This cannot be done
uutil this survey is made, as there is a
decided : difference of opinion amongst
our citizens. A majority of those con
versant with the route aver that it will
be an easy problem to solve, while oth

state that portions of the road could not
be built for less than what would practi

The mines on the sound are putting out
about 150,000 tons per month and still
the demand for coal is far in excess of
the supply.- If the English capitalists
can be induced to invest in this enter
prise it means that from BOO to 1000 tons
of coal per day will be handled here at
The Dalles. We have begun the good
work by a united, effort in the matter of
the portage road, let us continue it. If it
can be demonstrated that that road can
be' built for any reasonable sum, we
are satisfied the dirt will fly before the

Of Pacific Mail Headquarters to Tacoma.
San Francisco, Feb; 11. A rumor
was afloat today in shipping circles that
the Pacific Mail Steamship company
was a do lie to remove its neet and omces
to Tacoma, following the . plans of the
recent big railroad combination of west

subject, but could learn nothing definite,

At the , offices of the Pacific Mail ' an
authorative denial of the reported
change was made. In spite of this de
nial, however, some are inclined to
think there is good foundation for - the
rumor, inasmuch as the Pacific Mail has
not made any provisions for a change of
dock room here, which will be rendered
necessary by the extension of the sea
wall. It was stated last week that the
company had secured a location for the
dock on the new seawall, towards Van

Division of the Pacific Weather Keriew
for January, 1891.
San Francisco, Cal., Feb. 1, 1891.
The month of January has been not
able for the following important features :
1st. The high latitude of the easterlv
movement of cyclonic areas. 2d. Al
though the approximate paths of eight
cyclones have been charted for the
month in no case did the center of any "
storm reach southward into Washington.
3rd. The marked deficiency in precipi
tation throughout the Pacific coast
states. .4th. General increase in tem
perature in all districts, especially in
Washington. 5th. The periods of fair
weather in Washington and Oregon
from the 7th to the 14th, and from the
19th to the 23rd, when this reeion was
occupied by an anti-cyclone. 6th. The
slow movement-of the cyclonic areas of
the month, especially the storm of the
14th to 19th, which required nearly five
days to pass eastward beyond Washing
ton. 7th. The period of high northerly
winds in California from the 2oth to the
30th, when the velocities ranged from 25
to over 40 miles per hour at many
places. During this time an anti-cyclone
was central on the northwest coast
of California and the southwest coast of
Oregon. 8th. The - peculiar develop
ment of the cyclone of the 29th to 31st.
This storm appeared to remain almost
stationary over Biitish Columbia, but
with a remarkable influence in dimin
ishing barometric pressure to the south
ward, without apparently changing the
location of its center. The barometer
fell slowly but constantly for three days,
from Mexico to British America, cul
minating on the night of the 31st. In
light rains with snow in mountains, in
California, Nevada, Oregon and Wash
ington. 9th.-The development of a
huge "waterspout" off the mouth of the
Columbia River on the 6th, in the south
east quadrant of the cyclone then central
off Vancouver's Island. "This cyclone
first appeared on December 31st, last and
remained in the vicinitv of Washington
until January 6th. . The "waterspout"
was reported as of remarkable size and '
power, moving from S. W. to N. E. at
tended by a loud roaring noise. ; It
seemed to possess the characteristics of a
veritable tornado and would undoubtedly
have caused considerable destruction to
pioperty, and perhaps life,' if it had
passed over the land. Klth.-The heavy
and continuous gales off the Washington
coast, especially from the 14th to the 19th
during which time the average daily
maximum velocity at Fort Canby was
nearly ' 50 miles ""per ": hdurT" TITh-'
The heavy rains turning to snow in the
mountains in Southern California and
Southern Arizona on the 28th and 29th,
resulting from the high northerly winds
and low temperatures of that period.
San Diego 1.08 inches of rain and Fort
Grant 3.00 inches of snow. -
Rainfall. The rainfall has been defi
cient in all districts, especially in North-'
em California, and Western Oregon,
The deficiency ranges from 0.25 inches at
Keeler to 7.78 inches at Eureka, 4.67 in
ches at Red Bluff and 4.08 inches at San
Francisco. The rainfall at San Francisco
has not been so small since 1852 when
the amount reported was 0.58 inches. In
1851 the amount was 0.72 inches. The
rainfall for January 1891 is 0.98 inches.
In January 1862 there was recorded 24.
36 inches, the heaviest rainfall ' ever
reported for San Francisco. The largest
monthly rainfall was 6.60 inches at Fort
Canby. . No-rain fell at Keeler and Yuma.
The heaviest rainfall in 24 hours was 1.08
inches at San Diego on the 28th and 29th.
Rain fell on 22 days in Washington ; in .

in, California 19 days of rain and 13 of
snow; Nevada. ,10 .days of rain and 17
days of snow. Local storms : Astoria,
2nd, thunder, lightning and hail.
. Temperature : Jt has been above the
normal in all districts, except northern
Nevada where the deficiency is only one
degree at Winnemucca. ' The. excess is
most marked in Washington, northern
Oregon and .' southwestern California
where it ranges from 4 to: 13 degrees.
The highest temperature 80, occurred at
Los Angeles the 23. The lowest minus
18 degrees at Hal leek and Carlin, Nev.
