This query was put to Indian Apent Wright, who has reported each quarter number of Indiana on the reservation, and in roply he said he would himself take a census. This was done and he found only about 125 more Indians than Mr. Lea bad found. He accounted for tbe discrepancy between his original figures and those of Mr. Lea by stating that, owlr.j to tho epidemic which prevailed among the Indians last year tho prevalence of tho measles and small-pox amontr tbe children, the numbers had decreased. Indian Commissioner Morgan looknd over the report of the agency physician for the year ending June SO, 1S90, and found nineteen deaths reported, and nothing said of an epidemic. Ho there- upon reached the conclusion that Agent explanation was hardly ade- quate to account for a mortality which had swept out of existence thirty por cent of tho Indians at the Rosebud agencv. Secretary Noble concurred in this Tiew. and an order has boon issued di- recting that an investigation be made of the affairs at Rosebud agency, with tbe view of ascertain ing- the present loca- tion of the Indians who havo dis- appeared sinco Agent Wright's last re- port and the taking of tho census which hr.s just boon DOWN TO LiUSlNGSS. ol A LEAP TO DEATH, j An Old From ft Rapidly (DC Trmlu followed by liu Daugh- ter.
