Situation Conceded to be Serious. THE TROOPS OS THE MOVE. Portion of the Indians Making for Bis Horn Mountains. Two Smooth Thieves Eob a Brooklyn Bank. lly Associated Press.1 Itusitvii.i.K rJov. HOOU UH tlin airited here yeHter- du.v couriers riibhed with the news to I'ino Kidgu Agency. Word was re- ceived lust night Unit the Indians un- der lied Cloud declare they will meet the troopH in battle to-day. Agent lloycr and hia Indian police are pow- erless. One of the latter, Thunder Dear, arrested a bail Indian last Sat- urday, but was and the prisoner was released. Several other prisoners were released and the rebels threatened to burn the agency build- iiiKH. The Indians at Tine Kiclge Agency are about equally divided among good and bad. Ked Cloud and Little Wound have been fermenting trouble for several weeks, while Amer- ican Horse and Young-Man-Afraid-of- His-Horse tried to pacify the warriors. Last week a big meeting was he'd thirty miles from I'ino Kidge Agency, at which it is an apostle of the Messiah WUH present. He told the Indians to return to the agency and await the coming of the Messiah, who is to arrive to-day in the form of u buffalo. lie will give the siirnal for the opening of the conflict which is to annihilate the white race. This fact causes great fear in the minds of old Indian fighters. Unless there is abso- lute failure to got word from the Mes- sian on the day of the arrival of troops conflict is certain. Major Butler's column went into camp prepared for what now seems to be a certain com- bat. Many of the friendly Indians have left the agency and arj now camped at Uushville. They have sig- nilied their intention of aiding the whites. OMAHA, Nov. special to the liec from 1'ine Ridge reports that affairs are temporarily quiet, though there is intense uneasiness. General Brooke is anxiously waiting for in- Btructions from the Department at Washington, duo before ho left Omaha, as to whether or not he shall interfere with the ghost dance. This dance is now going on-at Wounded Knee, sixteen miles northeast, at Porcupine, thirty miles north, while a scout who has just coune in, reports that u band of 500 copper faces ap- peared at a poiut only nine miles northeast. The Indians are dancing with their rifles strapped upon their backs. The ones dancing at Wounded Knee an- nounce openly that if the soldiers at- tempt to tako Little Wound Jack, Red Cloud, son of old Ked Cloud; Big Road and Little Uoad away, as there have been thie.its of doing, they wJ'l cut oil' the soldieis' ears and other- wise miuiii them. Every officer on the ground, espe- cially those high in authority, look upon the situation as very critical. To bj still more explicit, the officers consider it next to probable that six or eight thousand Indians may sweep down on the agency at any moment. "Nothing but a miracle could pave us from Ouster's said a promi- nent officer, "and I hope to God rein- forcements will arrive before the red devils make their break." The Indians here in sight seem ex- ceedingly friendly and are trusted by all, but is well to keop in view the fact that blood is thicker than water. Red Cloud, who has been and is still sympathizing with the new Christ fa- natics, is hero instead of being off at the ghost dance, and continues very sullen. He is being keenly watched, and on the first false move he will be put in irons. Ho seems thoroughly bent on producing an uprisal. WASHINGTON, Nov. tele- grams received at the War Depart- ment from General Miles regarding the Indians are to the same tenor as contained in tho dispatches covering talks with him at Chicago last night. He considers the situation so grave that he recommends the putting of additional troops into the field at once. The cavalry and artillery at Fort Riley are ordered to be in readiness to move at once. CHKYENNE, Nov. Gruard, a Government scout stationed at Fort McKinley, reports the renegade Sioux nd Cheyennes heading for Utah and the Big Horn mountains. The dis- tance is 200 miles, and the fleeing reds will fraverse several counties of Wy- oming. Their plan IP doubtless to make a stand against their pursuers in the broken counties. Governor War- ren at once wired General Brooke to protest against the removal of the Fort McLinley cavalry to Pine Ridge. Gruard intimates there is imminent peril. His information was secured from Utah Crows, to whom runners brought the news. CHICAGO, Nov. Miles has advices that there is no outbreak j at Pine Ridge, and thinks General j Brook will prevent hostilities. RAILROAD Union Pacific Manage- ment to Change. MOTHER BM GOES UNDER. IMplonmtic By Associated Press.] WASHINGTON, Nov. morn- ing's Post says there are several diplo- matic and consular positions of higher grades yet filled by Democrats, also several Postmasters in large cities, particulorly in the South. Humor is busy with the name of Congressman Adams of Chicago for Minister to China; vice, Denby an Indiana Demo- crat, whom the President lias not recalled because of his personal friendship. Denby 4s said to be per- fectly willing to come home and Con- gressman Hitt, whose influence with Blaine is suid to bu all powerful, is urged, it is said, that Adams suc- ceed him. It is also said that Charles Emery Smith is anxious to return to his Philadelphia paper, having already tired of the rigors of St. Peters- burg. If he should resign, Gov- ernor Gear of Jlowa or Bayne of Pennsylvania will likely succeed him. Another of the defeated will be sent to Central America to relieve Mizner, his recall having been practi- cally agreed upon. Morrow of Cali- fornia could have that place if he wanted it, and ho will probably take it, for the salary is and the expense of living is not great. Keport Which Mliould be Heeded. By Associated Press.] WASHINGTON, Nov. 21. Surgeon- General Hamilton has made a report to Secretary Tracy giving the result of visits by him to the principal for- eign ports of the embarkment of im- migrants for the United States. He visited Naples, London, Liverpool, Glasgow, Bremen, Triest and Ham- burg, and found no thorough medical examination of emigrants any where. Dr. Hamilton says no country is so free as the United States in admitting inimigrantH, aud urges restrictive leg- islation, pointing out that nearly imtnigiants have come here within six years, largely made up of undesirable classes. He recommends that a law be passed requiring the in- tended immigrants to furnish the United States Consuls with evidence that he is not a criminal or a pauper, nor suffering from any epidemic or contagious disease or other disability to make him a pulic charge. Indicted for Manslaughter. By Associated Press.] CHICAGO, Nov. Grand Jury 1ms returned twenty-five indictments agaitist J. C. Bright, President, and W. H. Bright, Vice-President, of the Genesee Oil Company of Buffalo, who shipped the naphtha which caused an explosion on the steamer Tioga here some months ago, killing twenty-five longshoremen.

Mc'K.ennn'8 Plurality. By Associated Press. I SAX Francisco, Nov. official returns from the Third Con- gressional District give McKenna (Rep.) Irish (Dem.) McKenua's plurality, California Fruit Growers in Convention. Overland lanes and Kates. By Associated Press.] NEW YORK, Nov. was asked this morning in reference to the report that he had got control of the Atchison, TopekaA Santa Fe Railroad, and said the report was erroneous, although he admitted that he owned a considerable portion of the Atchison stock. Ho said the Missouri Pacific and the Atcbison had entered into an agreement with reference to the future business policy of the two roads, and they had agreed that neither shall build any competing road into the territory of the other without a full understanding and sanction of the other. With reference to the rates on the transcontinental lines, Gould express- ed confidence that an agreement be- tween the Presidents will be renewed and strictly maintained within a short time. Under the new situation nearly all the roads favor a restoration of rates. It only remains for the bank- ers to call the Presidents togetder. It is authoritively learned to-day that a meeting of the principal stock- holders of the Union Pacific for a re- organization of its Board of Directors will be held next week. It is under- stood that Charles Francis Adams' will retire and be succeeded by Sidney Dillon. The new Board of Directors will include Russell Sage, Jay Gould, Alexander ID. Orr and Henry. R. The new board intends to appoint some young active railroad man as Vice-President and General Manager, whose headquarters will be in Omaha. The person to be so treated is not yet determined upon, but an endeavor will be made to secure a young man of abundant railway experience and the highest capability. The Vanderbilt pjople admit that Jay Gould has got control of the Union Pacific. One of the parties named as a direc- tor said: "The board will soon be reorganized. John D. Rockefeller working with Gould brought the change about. He refused to sp3ak about the future policy of the road in regard to the Northwest traffic agree- ment." Gould this afternoon said to a re- porter I know nothing as to whether Adams has placed his resignation in the hands of Ames. Adams and Ames visited me yesterday, and the former expressed a strong desire to be relieved from the office of President. He sug- gested that he resign, and a meeting of stockholders for action upon his resignation be called for next week. I presume if it is true he has intrusted his resignation to Ames a meeting will be held. It is likely, also, that the vacancy in the management will be filled. Dillon has been mentioned as the successor of Adams. It is probable, should Dillon be chosen, there will be elected along with him a Vice-President, who shall' act as General Manager, with headquarters at Omaha." Gould added that such a move would make the relations of his inter- ests and the Union Pacific closer. BOSTON, Nov. Adams, Director Ames and other directors all decline to say anything about the re- port of. a proposed transfer of the Un- ion Pacific to Jay Gould's interests. President Adams says: You may say that I decline to be interviewed." "A. lions-felt Want." An illuminated tin cat to scare away mice is a feature of the patent office. If a device could be patented whereby every cat which sings on backyard fences at night oould be illuminated, it would fill a long-felt want, as it enable the angry householder to see where to throw the boot-jack, Feannt Hoclal. The young ladies of the Y. W. C. T. U. gave a very pleasant peanut social at Odd Fellows' Hall, on Wednesday evening. Ths program was unique and the peanuts were par excellence. A very enjoyable evening was spent by all. A Hallroad Alllanrr. By Associated Press.) NEW YORK, Nov. is staled this afternoon that an alliance has been formed between the interests represented by George C. Magoun of Kidder, Co., Jay Gould, C. P. Huntiugton and the Standard Oil Company, by which all railroads owned or controlled by them, individ- ually or jointly, are to be operated to- gether, practically under Gould's di- rection. The alliance includes the Southern Pacific, Union Pacific, Mis- souri Pacific, Northern Pacific, Atchi- son, Texas, Texas Pacific and many other roads. It is also said Gould is trying to force the holders of Rock Island to either sell their stock around the pres- ent prices or join hands with the other roads in the alliance. The Burlington and Chicago Alton will act with the allied roads in what- ever step may hereafter be taken, but there are fears the Vanderbilts may be angry at the loss of.their traffic contract on the Union Pacific and refuse to join. If the Vandei bills and the roads controlled by J. P. Morgan can be brought in, a meeting of the bankers and railroad Presidents of all roads in the country will be called, a new asso- ciation formed, and then an immediate material advance in ull railroad rates will at once be ordered. Likely to Change Hands. By Associated Press.] NEW YORK, Nov. World says: The greatest piece of news in Wall street is that JohnD.and William Rockfeller, the Standard Oil magnate.-, bad acquired control of the Northern Pacific Railroad. They are known to have been heavy buyers of Northern Pacific preferred during the late de- cline in values. They bought in Northern Pacific at the request of Jay Gould. They have a great amount of surplus money, for which they have been seeking advantageous invest- ments. The earnings of the Northern Pa- cific are now the largest in the history of the company. The company, how- ever, has been suffering from entan- glement with other Villard corpora- tions, and the purpose of the Rocke- fellers is stated to be to remove it from them. There is a scheme oh foot to provide connections for the Northern Pacific which will make it an uninterrupted rail line from the Atlantic to the Pa- cific. By its alliance with the Wis- consin Central it already reaches from Puget Sound to Chicago, and its route thence, it is said, will be by way of the Baltimore Ohio._______ California Frnlt-ttrowers. Special to GAZETTE.] SANTA CBUZ Nov. 21. the Fruit-Growers' Convention this morning a committee of five was ap- pointed to confer with a similar com- mittee from the Florida Fruic Union in reference to an alliance or co-opera- tion between the two organizations. A special committee reported in favor of some action by the fruit- growers of the State to protect Eastern dealers and consumers against impo- sition and fraud by unprincipled parties selling inferior fruit under California labels. An essay on grapes was read by W. H. Galbraith, and a discussion upon small fruits by Mra. McCann occupied the balance of the session-._____ Action Taken. By Associated Press.] r-iTTSBUBO, Nov. the Na- tional Convention of Non-Partisan W. C. T. U. reassembled this morning a telegram from Miss Frances "NVillard was read, asking that the name of the organization be changed, as it was not legal.

Varment Alliance. Special to the GAZETTE.! SAN JOSE Nov. The Farmers Alliance spent the morn- ing in discussing their constitution and by-laws, section by section.

By Cable and Associated Press.] LONDON, Nov. are quiet and steady, with a fractional advance, generally in Americans. NEW YORK, Nov. opened comparatively quiet for the first hour, with prices higher. Advances were general for sugar refineries. The only marked feature in the early trading was a renewal'of weakness in Rock Island, which opened up at but quickly fell to on large dealings. The general list yielded in small frac- tions, but the downward moveicont in Rock Island ended in material gains being scored all along the line. At 11 o'clock the market was firm and active at the best prices reached. Under some baying by London the market continued strong and was made more so by the announcement that tho Southern Pacific, Santa Fe, Union Pacific and others of the trans- continental roads had signed anauree- ment to firmly maintain rates and pay no rebates, and refuse to exchange traffic with the roads east of the Mis- souri river if found manipulating rates. Pullman advanced but the most conspicuous feature of the forenoon, however, was the activity and advance in Northern Pacific preferred, which went up 2% to 63 before After thia came Union Pacific and Western Union.
