Buffalo Bill Will HU Influence With Sitting Bull nuil the Sioux to Prevent DCTRA.VGO, Col., Nov. A band of Navajo Indians were here yesterday from their reservation ia the southern part of the State. While they say "they are not in it'1 they show from their ac- tions they are areatly excited over the reports from Dakota, and it will take but little to induce them to join the Sioux. They would talk but little and claimed to have sotuo communication from the north. Their theory is that the Messiah over whom the Pine and Rose, ud acrai.'-ios aro so excited 13 none other than Isadoro Cohen, who was known throughout Southern Colorado as "Is'osoy" Cohen, a le.ider well ac- quainted with tongues and cus- toms. Many of the tiouthorn Utes talk of the craze with interest, and seem tj wish that all rppn-ts true that tno Good Spirit would como to them as to the Sioux and restore the old days of flint arrows and a'dnie. WICHITA, Kan., Xuv. The excito- ment over thts -Messiah craz? and the ghost dances among the Apaches, Chey- ennes and Nez IVrce-j has spread amonjj tbe Apacbes and Kiowas. All are great- ly excited and dancing- more earnestly than ever before. Quanah, of the Apaches, has been converted aud his in- fluence reaches out bnyond his own peo- ple. Some of the Indians are cutting their flesh and showing an increase of warlike spirit. Some of the more en- thusiastic reached i be vicinity of Fort Reno yesterday and rode around in a warlike manner. OKLAHOMA Cn-v, I. T., Nov. The Messiah craze has reached Oklahoma and troops stationed here are expecting orders to be sent to the seat of war. Captain Stiles has received orders to march at a raomen 's notice. This order also applies to the troops stationed at Kingfisher and Guthrie. CHICAGO, Nov. General Miles was seen last nisjnt with reference to dis- patches from M ssouU, Mo.it, stating that a battle harl occurred between the United States troops and Northern Cheyenne Indians near Fort lOogh. "I have not had any official advices con- cerning this reported said tho General, "and in the absence of official information I am not inclined to be- lieve tho storv." Yesterday Gennral HiLis received a telegram from General Brooke, in which he says: "Tbe Indian chief Little Wound came into Pine Ridgfe Agency Wednesday and every hour seems to lessen the strength of the disaffected In- dians. Short Bud, of Rosebud Agency, has also come into the agency and his people, about five hundred lodges, num- bering nearly Indians, are reported as also coming toward the agency. I consider Short Bull one of the wor-tand most treacherous chiefs in the North- west. I have now a strong command and am ready for summary action at a notice." A letter was received by General Miles from Judge E. C. Rice, of Man- dan, N. D., saying: "I desire to ad- iress the bead of the Government in re- ffard to the dansrer we are in here from the Indians. The Government sends out men to investigate. They cee no In- iians and go away thinking there is no langcr, while old Indian scouts and men who have lived among- tbe Indians and :an talk with them say there is danger. Even the authorities say there is dan- ger. In the bena'lf of the people and myself, we ask fiat something be done, that troops be sent, in sufficient aumbers to p-otcct us. until this crazo has passed away." General Miles will leave for ry ton to-day to be absent not longer than three or four days. BrsMAKCK, ;S. D.. Nov.

B-ffalo Bill bas a commission from General Miles which is believr-d to be the most impor- tant of any since Sitting Bull's surrender. The party will go direct to Sitting Bull's camp on Grand rivor. It will be remembered tbat Sitting Bull did not come in on .Saturday, ra- tion day, bat ssnt word to Agent Mc- Langhlin that his child was sick.

Awful Conftrquftncea of for Fab- lie Comfort Safety at Eutern Park. Brooklyn, N. V. BROOKLYN, Nov. noon Thurs- day when the newly orected open stand at Eastern Base Ball Park was crowded with men, women and girls to witness the Yale-1'rinceton foot ball match, the whole north end g-ave way with a ter- rific crash and roar, carrying the rest of the stand with it instantly and with a noise that sounded like thunder. The cries of the men and the shrieks of tbe women were wholly drowned by tbe crash, and the rest of the spectators sprang to their with shouts of fear and horror. the -.vr.-olc lay still tbe crowd dash -d in to rescue those im- prisoned under thu and for a half hour under thr> rafters were being lifted out and carried away. Ko one was killed, which was miracu- lous, but any number of women and young girls were carried out fainting. The scene and the shock of in the midst of the cheers andsongsand dth of trumpets of the a horrible contrast and for some time silenced the great crowd. The stand that fell was one erected for this game. Only one end of the stand, which held people, remained standing, with the boards upon which the people had sat sloping down to tbe ground. Among those hurt, and who were not at onoe taken from the grounds before their names were learned, were: J. S. Dunning, Pnnce'ton '93, foot broken at. the instep; John Monroe, another Prince- ton undergraduate, leg injured so that he had to be carried from the grounds: John Weed, of Yale, injured internally and unconscious; Stephen P. Spear, of Yale, arm broken; John Carruthers. ,a Wesleyan student, badly cut about-the head; Eldridge, of Princeton '04, both legs badly jamcnud at ankle; Curley, a Princeton '94, was knocked unconscious and bis injuries are serious; Mr. Leonard, of Fifth avenue. New York.a middle-aged man, had his leg bronen; Edward Mor- gan, of Yale, had his leg hurt; a Yale man, name not learn concussion of the spine; George A. Wylie, Normandie Hotel, thigh broken; James MoGlone, Brooklyn, internal injuries: P. S. Kool- er, Columbia '91, wrist bro'cen; C. Tur- ner, Troy, N Y leg hurt: H. W. Faleer. Bayonne, N. .1.. scalp wound; George A. Johnson, Hotel Normandie, contusion of spine. A lot of boys, nani3s not learned, who stood upon the top row of the bleachers, were badly bruised and cut The only ladies who were hurt wore two Brook- lyn women, one of who had her foot crushed and the other her leg bruised. Some of those who were buried be- neath the anl were taken out unconscious, afterwards recovered and declined to be treated. Tney went on the field again and found other places from which to view the game. Many ot the friends of the injured people had them carried away at once before their names could be learned. In this way a great many cases were not reported to the police. This accident is in keeping with the entire mismanagement of the park com- mittee. The sale of their tickets to speculators became a trivial matter in comparison with the awful consequences of this latest example of their careless disregard for the public comfort and safety and their desire to save money at any cost A few dollars more might have saved the broken arms and per- haps fatal injuries of tbe holiday crowd, and ambulances would not have been grazing wheels with the gayly draped coaches. The lowest estiin.ite puts thn number of hurt at fifty. Tnis docs not take account of those who wore merely bruised, but includes those who had limbs broken and who wounded in- ternally. It was noticeable fact that not a horn was blown or a cheer given for over three-quarters of an hour after the acci- dent occurred. McKean. of tbe Theo- logical Society of Princeton, and Brad- ley, of the college, both had their legs seriously hart Five women were badly hurt, but their names were not given out Charles Wilson, of Brooklyn, sprained his leg: Two cadets of tbe Peekskill Military Academy were badly shaken up and sustained internal in- juries. Emery D. Remington, of Brook- lyn, had a leg broken in tbe fall. Two "students wbo v> give their names were carried o.Tthc gronnds insensible Ambulances carried three of tbe injured to the City Hospital. A room under the grand stand was turned to a temporary hospital, where the in- jured were taken and aitenlM by doo- j wbo happened to be oa tbe grotaads, by surgeons from tbe hospitals.

Dynoskl William Zwinski, who left here three weeks ago with seventy-five other labor rs for the Ashley River Phosphate Company's guano dopo-its near Charles- ton, S. C, have returnod and tell of a riot which occurred there last week in which Eaul Klein and throe Poles who were ia his gang were killed. Klein, who was a saloon-keeper of this city, was in charge of the seventy-five men and promised them good wages. The Poles. Italians, Indians and ne- groes, who are the only inhabitants near these guano deposits excepting the white bosses, became dissatisfied with their pay, which was much less than had been promised, and demanded bet- ter treatment Klein tried to quiet tho belligerents, but was unsuccessful. The negroes then opened fire on Klein and some other whites. Klein fled, but was overtaken andsnot dead. Dyuoskisays that three other men were killed in tho moleo.

Ho claims that he foil in with bunco men three weeks ago when he arrived in this country and that they robbed him of his money and papers. AGAIN RESPITED. Two Saved From the Gallows at the Klereiith Hour liy Olilo't ernor. -js, 0., Nov. Late yester- day afternoon Governor Campbell re- spited Henry Popp and Isaac Smith, who were sentenced to hang in the peniten- tiary annex last night Popp was re- spited once before when he was within three hours of the time of bis execution. He admits his guilt, but extenuating circumstances which surround his crime will probably secure for him commuta- tion to life imprisonment Smith has now been respited seven times. His conviction was secured upon circumstantial evidence and ho has al- ways protested his innocence. It is now claimed that new evidence has been dis- covered which will establish his inno- cence and fix the crime upon another man. STOVE WOKKS IN FLAMES.

Berlin correspond- ents say there is considerable distress among tho who havo floc'-ced to that city in the bopo of being treated by Dr. Koch's new method.

This solid phalanx of half a hundred was matin up of uion who a-e tin- mosu upon tho sala- ries which Mr. I'arnell has it in his power 10 distribute, by virtue- of his un- disputed privilege of naming tho Parli- amont.iry candidates in the various Irish districts.
