Another New York Bank Assigns. THE OMAHA BRIDGE JMGLE. A Case of Self Defense Down Mississippi. in Latest From the Hostile Sioux Indians.' Omaha Bridge Trouble. By Associated OMAHA, Dec. temporary in- junction was granted on the petition of Ernest Stull of Omaha, to prevent in bonds voted by the city to aid the Union Pacific Railroad in the construction of u union depot here, from being turned over to that com- pany. The injunction was based on the grounds that the Union Pacific should allow all other roads access to the depot at reasonable terms, and it now shows a disposition to violate the contract. The hearing was set for January 5. After the order of the Court was served on the Union Pacific last night, and that company had learned from the court that St. Paul trains could come across the bridge, an attempt wus made to bring a fast tram on the hitter road from Council Bluffs. The train progressed but a short distance, when it was brought to a standstill by the tracks being torn up for 150 feet an attempt was made to take the train over another route, but the switch was found blocked by an engine ordered there to keep the train from going through. C'ODitnlar By Associated Press.J NEW YOKK, Dec. to the consular frauds iu Canada the Washington correspondent of the Herald says: "I am told that Treasury experts are now of the opin- ion that the recent discovered frauds in the importation of dutiable mer- chandise from Canada have lost the revenue service a very much greater sum than the amount hitherto esti- mated. The actual loss to the reven- ues of the United States is millions of dollars. The detection and supression of these frauds are so important that it is confidently believed one of the immediate results will be a notable decline in Canadian exports to thei United States, apart from the opinion that it is due to higher duties under tho'McKinley bill." Mtewart on Bill. By Associated Press 1 WASHINGTON, Dec. speaking on the FnancinI bill iu the Senate to- day Stewart said the purpose of the bill was to purchase ounces or silver now held by speculators and issue of bonds to be held as a basis of National bank circula- tion. Its provisions were for the re- lief of gamblers, survey speculators and National banks. Such a pur- chase of said the Senator, would temporarily increase its price and thereoy to some extent benefit some of my constituents, but they are not asking for benefit at any such price. They prefer to bide theirtiuneand wait until there are enough votes in Con- groxa to enact into a law the free and un- limited coinage of silver." An lufMaona Hy Cable and Associated ST. PETEBSCURO, Dec. new law against the Jews will be promul- gated Thursday. It forbids the sell- ing, leasing or mortgaging to a Jew of any estate in the Empire. All privi- leges heretofore granted to certain Jewish merchants in the ownership of real estate are cancelled. Jewish artisans who have been permitted to reside outside of the Hebrew section will have to return. The misery con- sequent upon this new decree can hardly bo estimated. Christians aid- ing Jews to evade these regulations are to be punished. "Welt Detinue." By Associated Press-1 CABROMTON Dec. the preliininrry examination of Mc- Bride yesterday for the killing of J. P. Mathews, Republican postmaster of this place, on last Christmas, twentv- flve or thirty witnesses were examined, and after exhaustive arguments, it was decided McBride acted in self de- fense, and he was discharged. Vram Ttae Honclle ttloni. By Associated Press I WASHINGTON, Dec. 31. General Schofield this morning received the following telegram from General Miles, dated Chadron, Nebraska, De- comber 30th: "I reported yesterday the statements received from Colouel Forsythe through General Brooke. I am now informed that the loenes in that affair were, Captain Wallace of the Seventh Cavalry and twenty-five men killed, and Lieutenant Garling- ton and thirty-four men wounded. Lieutenant Hawthorn, of the Second Cavalry, and about three hundred In- dians that were at or near the agency at the time, are now here. General Brooke reports that he expected that some will return. About 500 men now belong to the hostile element. I ex- pect to be at the Agency to-morrow morning and report more in detail." OMAHA, Dec. 31, Bee special from Kuahville says a blinding snow- storm, which is fast assuming the proportions of a blizzard, is raging here and at the agency since 9 o'clock this morning. The advices are that a desultory fight was kept up nearly all night at the battle ground within a few miles of the agency, until byfeaeon of the suspicious actions of the alleged friendly Indians in camp near the agency, the troops were called in from the field. There seems no doubt if the Indians shonld make an onslaught during this storm they would undoubt- edly have a great advantage, as they are iu their element at such a time. The danger is that the Indians will now break away to their stronghold in the Bad Lands and will be re-inforced by the Rosebud, Standing Rock and other Indians. Eight more dead sol- diers were brought in to the agency after dark last the victims of yesterday's fatalities. The question on every hand is what has become of the supposedly large number of friendly bucks located south of the agency until yesterday. A ha'f-breed courier who was through that camp last night reports that nearly every able-bodied Indian in this outfit bad quietly slipped away alter dusk and had joined the hostiles. The friendly Indians ut Pine Ridge now, he says, are principally squaws and children andt those not able to fight. Up to 11 o'clock this morning, however, every- thing was reported as quiet, both sides resting on their arms and each await- ing some move from the opposing forces. The losses of the Indians are known to have been great, but the definite numbers are not yet ascertained. The two strangers found murdered within two miles of the agency yesterday, are now believed to be teamsters from Rufeliville. The Indian signal lights were again plainly visible last night at the Rough Country, twenty miles north. It has been repeatedly sug- gested here that in the event of further hostilities that a part of the State militia be used to a good advan- tage in the small towns nearest the reservation, to guard against strag- gling bands, inasmuch as in a general fight, the regular troops would un- doubtedly have all they could take care of at the seat of war. Wild Winter Weather. By Associated Press WASHINGTON, Dec. Signal Office furnishes the following special bulletin: The morning reports show that over Arkansas, Eastern Missouri and Iowa, the year closes with one of the warmest periods on record for this season of the year, the temperature over these sections being from to above the average. The temperature is above mean over nearly the entire country west of the Alleghenies. This warm wave will move eastward and over the Gulf States. The Ohio Valley and a greater portion of the lake region on New Years day promises to be one of the warmest ever known. mm OF Opinion of the Lodge Election Bill. PARML-O'BRIEN CONFERENCE.

Dullness again became the most prominent feature of the stock market The opening prices among the leading stocks showed more declines than ad- vances. Latt fa better tone prevailed, which brought most stocks back to the opening figures. At 11 o'clock the market was dull and steady to- firm at insignificant changes front first prices. The failureof Bateman ers was formally announced on the Stock Exchange. After 11. further progress was made in the direction of higher figures, but the improvement as a rule, was insig- nificant fractions which in cases were lost later in the hour. At noon the market was steady 'and dull and close to opening prices. After 12 o'clock Union Pacific rose The feature of the dealings was the buying under the rule of stocks for the account of Bateman Com- pany by which Omaha was advanced to 24 against 21H at the opening. The general lint later joined in the move- ment and everything lifted to higher prices than during the forenoon. The market at r. M. being dull and strong at the best figures of the day. .Recovering the Dead Bodies. By Associated Press.] WiLKESBAfiKK, Dec. ghastly sequel is being enacted to-day to the frightful disaster which occurred in a shaft of the Lehigh and Wilkesbarre Coal Company at South Wilkesbarre last Marcn, when eight miners were imprisoned. After repeated efforts to secure the bodies, two were recovered, and the others will probably be found before night. At noon two more bodies had been found, but, as yet, there is no trace of the others. As to the resumption of work, Superintendent Lawall said that t was yet indefinite. Operations may possibly begin within the next two weeks. The mine has been idle since the disaster in March last. Mining- Suit. Special to the GRASS VALLEY (Cal.J, Dec.

Burrows is attorney for the plaintiff. on the Elections Bill. Associated Press.] WASHINGTON, Dec. is considerable discussion among mem- >ers of the House regarding the Elec- tions bill. One prominent Republican says be does not think it will pass the Senate, but if it' should it cannot get through the house unless there is a Republican quorum, which it is almost impossible to secure at the present session. A BeeoneUIatloM Impreaahle. By Cable and Associated Press PARIS, Dec. Siecle claims that a hot and hostile discussion took place yesterday at the conference be- tween Messrs. Parnell and O'Brien at Boulogne-Sur-Mer. The discussion, according to the Siecle, lasted until toward midnight, and renders a recon- ciliation between the Irish leaders most improbable.

The latter was em- ployed as watchman at the mine and had not received bis pay. The Sheriff has put on an extra guard to prevent lynching. Associated Press 1 WASHINGTON, Dec. disposing of routine business the Senate re- sumed the consideration of the Mor- gan resolution, relative to amend- ments to tho election bill, and a dis- cussion of the point of order was made against it by Senator Sherman, which was that the resolution was now on the calendar and could not be taken up by unanimous consent. The Vice-jPreeioent sustained the point and'Morgan appealed and pro- ceeded to address- the Senate on his appeal.
