Corbin of the army headquarters here, morning received a telegram from General at Rapid City, 8. D. confirming the ABSociated Press dis- patchos oi last night about the cap- tare of Big Foot und his band.

Major short with: A Hllcht By Associated Press 1 NEW YORK, Dec. 29.-The stock market opened this morning with con- siderable more animation than has been displayed for the paat few dars, and from a firm to a strong tone marked the dealings. The open- ing figures were generally fractionally higher than at Saturday's closing. Lackawanna took the lead in advance Vhich followed the opening, rising Rock Island followed with 1 per cent; Northern Pacific preferred, Reading and sugir, three-fourths each; Atchison with fiye-eights and others with smaller amounts. The upward movement continued through- out the hour, and at 11 o'clock, the market, while dull, was firm at about the best prices. The stock market after 11 was less active, but continued firm and strong, Lackwanna still leading. Almost pverythiny on the Hat reached. Btill higher prices than during jour, and while tbew spe- cial feature displayed, the market at was quiet to dull and firm at or near the highest prices of the morn- ing. The Pout says The advance was mainly due to the covering of shorts, and this was started by Home moder- ate buying for London account. Not- withstanding the expectation that more gold will be drawn from the Bank of England for Germany before the end of tne year, It is not regarded as the occasion for uneasiness in Lon- don, and money there was easier this morning at 3% for bankers' balances. The favorable bank statement here on on Saturday also had an effect to in- duce traders to cover their shorts so freely put out in grange stocks last Friday and on the first half of the past week. The stock market closed at the high- est figures of the day. WORK OF Discussion On Three Senators. V W. E. eUOSTOHE'S MRTffliit He Reaches .His Eighty-First Mite Stone.

"We would have done so before, but we couldn't find you and couldn't find any soldiers to surrender to." Then, at a signal, his warriors raised a white flag, and in loss time than it takes to it, the military had their prisoners surrounded, and scouts were hastened into Pino Ridge Agency for the other four troops of the fourth cavalry and Lieutenant Taylor's scouts to help guard and disarm the party. There are 160 warriors, all perfectly armed, and 250 squaws, together with many children. They seem to be all well fixed for war, except that some of them are without ponies.

The store was owned by Albert Jabn, who has disappeared with the entire stock of the establishment, valued at about The scheme was so success- ful that at least a dozen down-town diamond brokers and jewelers were victimized, and the ringleader in the plot made good his escape. The de- faulting tradesman left his wife penni- less. Before leaving for parts un- known he-persuaded her to give him the few hundred dollars she had saved up. In spit' of the fact of thw man's pre- vious reputation, he man- aged to work so upon the credulity of the down-town jewelers, and made such pretensions as to his big bank account and remunerative trade that he had comparatively no difficulty after he had once made a favorable impression In getting all the jewelry and diamonds he wanted on credit. One of the victims who let Jahn have jewelry on credit said he did not think more than could be realized on the fixtures, and unless the police re- cover the stolen stock the creditors will sustain a total loss. Bold Hank Bobbery. By Associated Press.) CHICAGO, Dec. 29. A telephone message from South Chicago says that three men entered a bank there to-day, covered the cashier with a revolver and robbed the bank of all the money it contained. They then jumped into a buggy and drove rapidly towards this city. An alarm was at once given, and the officers started in pur- suit, but the robbers were out of sight. The police in this city were notified at once, and officers were sent to inter- cept the fleeing robbers. The amount of money secured has not yet been learned. After a chase of seven miles the policemen captneed two of the robbers. Several shots were exchanged between the police and the fleeing robbers, and one of the latter was seriously wounded in the thigh. The third robber is still at large. The men entered the Merchants' Exchange Bank about 1 o'clock this afternoon. Two of them engaged the cashier's attention, while the third slipped through the door and, coming up behind that official, dealt him a blow which knocked him senseless. Then the three quickly rifled the bank, securing and dashed away in a baggy. Only was found on the men. ____ By Cable and Associated Pros.) DUBLIN, Dec. Scully, recently defeated by Sir John Pope Hennessy in the contest for North Kilkenny's seat in Parliament, has written-a letter to the freeman's Journal, to which he says that the attitude ol the Irish bishops before and daring the election referred to only shows that Parnell "committed a private vice" and allowed judgment by default to be delivered against him, and therefore he has been pronounced as no longer eligible-to the position of .a pubftc trust.' Continuing Scully says: "The Irish struggle is essen- tially not a moral one; a straggle lor leave for the Irish peo- .ple to manage Irish affairs after their own fashion. The struggle is one of pounds, shillings and pence, aud not of morals." Athlone, Roscommon and .West- meath are excited over a proclamation placed in all prominent It states that true Irishmen have re- solved to support their independence; that the Kilkenny reverse trumpet calls for you to close your ranks and make a last supreme fight for (he cause.

By Cable and Associated Preaa.1 LONDON, Dec. death, Thomas Richardson, member of Par- liament from Hartlepool, isannoonoed Bicbardson was a Liberal Unionist. it proper, therefore, that the question be determined by the proper commit- tee of the Senate. Mitchell said he had reliable infor- mation that it was a false report, so far as the election of three Senators was concerned, and held that the pro- ceedings had been regular and in order. Hoar argued that the question was a very simple one; that it was clear and unquestionable that one of the two Senators credentials had just been presented would go out on March 4, 1891, and the Legislature, being to session, had elected a Senator for the term which would'tben begin. Beyond all question there would be a vacancy at that time, because one of those-two gentlemen would have to go out on. March Carlisle that the Legislature oMdaho had no right to assume in advance of action by the Senate that there would be a vacancy in the Sen- ate frort that Skate on March and that no election for aJSenatotro fill such vacancy eonld take place until it was legally known that a va- cancy would occur; that after it is de- termined by the Senate in a constitu- tional way that there would be a va- cancy after that time the next Legis- lature of Idaho, if in session, might proceed at once to choose a Senator, and if the Legislature were not in ses- sion the appointment of a Senator should be made by the Governor of the State. He imagined there had never been a rase in the history of the country where a State Legislature had chosen three Senators at once. Hawley "Is it not imperative, under the Constitution, that there shall be a vacancy after the fourth of March I think-so." how could tbeieg- islature of Idaho be any more-certain of that fact three months hence than it ie one of .these gentle- men hoids precisely tbe'aame form of credentials. Now, I want the Senator to state what the Senate would do in case all three of them presented their credentials at the same time. How would the Senate determine what two of them were legally arraigned and what one of tbem was not? discussion was continued by Sanders, Cockrell, Reagan and Mitchell. Spooner asked Reagan whether the State of Idaho'was npt entitled to two Senators.
