Stewart, agency saddler, while out buggy riding Sunday with his fami- ly, visited the Indian camp four miles j from the agency and stopped to see the Indians perform their religious cere- mony. He began to rebuke Sitting Bull and others, saying there was nothing in the Indian religion and they ought not to follow it.

For rnoro than twenty-Svo ye-irs Barney "rell and his wife have together and the history of their married life has been one of unceasin? quarrels, which usually ended in Brell shamefully beating Ins wife.

This is a most suspicious circumi'ance to the authori- ties, as all thy Indians show up always on ration day. A man named Whita- 3eld, who runs a small trading1 storo oa White river near Rosobud, arrived here Monday and reported that a band of In- dians broke in and pillaged his store during his temporary absence He came to Pierre for safety, as a1 so did a ranch- man named Scoville. The latter claims to have conversed with Indian Messiah followers recently aad they told him that the white man bad his Messiah and the Indian could have his; that tho In- dian did not stop the white man from worshiping his Great Spirit and that if the white man tried to stop the Indian he would flffht and kill all the whites that came near. Ha only wanted to be left alone to dance and no wJutes must come about. If the Great Father sent soldiers to stop them they would be served like Castor's soldiers were. The consensus of opinion here is that affairs are at a critical stage among the In- dians and that the least thing will pre- cipitate an outbreak, but if no inter- ference is offered to the fanatics they will soon subside and the excitement will pass off.

Shields, a noted chief from the lately ceded Winnebacro reservation, ass been participating in tbe ghost dance at tbe Rosebud Agency, is here and acts very suspicious and is held by the marshal until be is proves other than a spy. Great excitement prevails. OMAHA. Neb., NOT. from Pine Ridge Agency say that there is yet ao sign of a breach of peace ap there.

Fireman William Weiskoff burst in the door and found a clerk, Alexander Griffin, inside, bound hand and foot and gagged. The clerk was brought out and v'hila the firetnon worked on the flames Griffin told this story: He said he was in bed at the rear of the store when three men entered. Two held him while one bound him se- curely. After that was doae he was thrown on the floor and one man stood over him with a revolver. The other two went through the store and searched the till and then proceeded upstairs to the offices of lawyer Woxon and auc- tioneer Dillon. Something must thon have frightened them, for they beat a retreat. Tbe next thing Griffin knew flames were bursting forth in the rear of the store. He dragged himself to the front door and lay there until rescued. Tho building was completely burned out. The family of Mr. Kull, on tho top floor, barely escaped with their lives.

"The plans set on foot last spring have lately matured so rapidly and on such a scale as to be fairly amazing. The best that was hoped for in tho original idea was a series of groups, as, for instance, the Southwestern, the Northwestern and tbe Union Pacific and adjacent lines. But it has boen found that these roads so cross each other in their rami- fications that only one grand alliance would secure the desired results.

Sec- retary Bussoy. of tbo Interior Depart- ment, has overruled the action of Com- missioner Raum in rejecting the claim of Minerva A. Ross, widow of Patrick Ross, of Bellovillp. 111., for a pension. This case has boon pending for twenty- fivo years. Tho records of tho office show that tho soldier was wounded in 1802. and a pension was granted him from the date discharge. In Feb- ruary, 1864, he surrendered his pension and was enrolled as a veteran recruit to serve threo years. On April 5, 1S04, he went home on sick furlough, and on April S be was killed by a young man of decided Confederate sympathy. In overruling the action of Commis- sioner Raum, General Bussoy says that, accepting that tho soldier was away from his rejriruent on sick leavtv, that be was actually engvjod in soliciting recruits (ns shown by tho tostimo'iy taken in tbo caso) during- such time, and as a result thereof was killed, without fault or reasonable orovocation on his part, his death was by reason of a cause which was due to tho service and his v, idow is entitled to a pension. 31 UK HER WILL OUT.
