The troopsfcsuffered materially from the cold duringsthe cnarch of twenty-five miles, which was begun at twelve o'clock. The roads are to rough that several wagons over- turned on the way and a teamster named Burke was uuder one of them, tiis hip bdin? broken. Many long de- lays were caused by such accide-uts.

PIERKE, S. D, Nov. Captain Nor- ville, a special the Government stationed here to adjudicate Indian :laims, yesterday paid a visit to tho Two Kettle tribe of Sioux, living some dis- tance up Bad river. Taese Indians are partly civilized and tho report was cir- sulated that they were deserting their homes to fro to Hump and liijr Foot's tamps and join the hostiles in ghost lances. When tho captain found theso fellows they positively denied it and made affidavits to tLiafc effect The cap- tain next waited upon Crow Eagle and Hump Rib, bbf two head men of tho band, and told the captain that emissaries had visited them from the Cherry crook Indians and one evening while they were having- a dance one of Big Foot's mon caito in and addressed them, and told them about the new Christ and how he was going to lead the Indians into happiness and destroy the whites. He urged thorn to co-no over to the Cheyenne river and join with them in their ghost dances, but they told him thej would not go and neither had been there. told the capitain they wished lie would have it said in the Pierre papers that they were not-goinsr to join in the new Messiah craze, further they started that within the past few days several of the bestilos had appeared among them, making threats that if they did not join them enough force would be -sent them at once to massacre all the Two Kettle tribe without warning.

The sase has attracted mn-a attention from the proraine-n'-e or tV- parties. Should Lynched. iMn.wArKEE, Wis., Nov. Krotz. aged sixty-seven, has confessed bianself the assailant of tho twelve- year-old daugfcter of Jacob Hunger, and acknowledges baving tried to burn bis victim to death so as to destroy the proof of bis guilt. Krotz has a wealthy and respected wife. When confronted by tbe child he broke down and con- fessed having assaulted other girls, one oaly tern years old. He sent at once to the express office to learn whether the money was there. The express agent said the money had been given to Marks, as it was supposed he was still connected with the bank. Word was sent to police headquarters and Chief Harden immediately started out with officers of tho bank to work on the case. At tho American express office the officials stated that they had baen told by the detectives to say nothing about the matter. Cashier Waters stated that never before had money sent by express to the bank be.en delivered to a representative of the bank. Tho money packages were always sent to the bank. "We send money to the express offices by said Mr. Waters, "but tho express company should have deliv- red raonoy for us at tbe bank." Marks is twentv-four years old. He entered the se'-vlcf of tha Flour City bank at the ago of sixteen yaar.s and rose to the position of note teller. His industry and capability were recognised by the officials of tbe bank and about two years ago he was promoted. Ho was not discharged for any act. Through the iuflitencu-of Joseph Bier, a friend of the Marks family, a position was given tho young man as traveling for the. firm of Moore Bier, clothing manufacturers. UriCA, N. Y., Nov. M. Marks, of Rochester, was captured in a house of ill fame in this city last even- ing. A satchel containing S.24.650 of the stolen -sio.ioy ia tho original packages was recovered, Marks had shaved off his mustache. He positively refused to make any statement. Abraham Darker, the founder of the house of Barker Bros, it Co.. said: "The assignment was unavoidable. We hoped to bo able to avert it, but it was impos- sible. People who owed us money and upon whom we depended did not pay us. We expected that they would do so, but they failed to moot their engagements and now we have failed to meet ours. That is all that can be said now. Of course, the condition of the money mar- ket has much to do with tho trouble. Tho step was necessary for the protec- tion of our customers." Wharton Barker is president of ibe Finance Company of Pennsylvania and is a director of tho Investment Com- pany of Philadelphia. Just before tho suspension of Barker Bros. Co. was announced, meetings of the directors of these companies were called in haste. At the Finance Company preparations were made run on its deposits and s-ubsequent events showed that the pre- aution was well taken. A number of checks wero presented during the last hour of the day's business and some ac- counts drawn out All drafts upon it met. Treasurer Stem says tho com piny is entirely solvent. Vice President Tower also said that tho Finance Company could moet every ob- ligation against it and that the msetinif of tho directors had no reference to the Barker failure. President Uoyt, of the Investment Company, said the directors at their meeting had taken no action with refer- ence to the Barker failure. ad Miciu. XOT.
