The Notorious Chief Shot by tiian Police. A Battle the Sioux in Which Six Ho and Seven Went Under. More Sent to Surronr.cl the and it Thought (Jean. Kill Ead Trouble. ST. PAUL. Minn., Dec. Miles last, evening received dispatches stating that in a fight near Standing Rock Agency Monday morning Sitting Bull and a number of Indian police had been killed. The first dispatch was from Pierre, S. JD., slating that Sitting Bull and bis son had boen killed, but giving no further particulars. The other dis- patch was from Standing- Rock Agency, S. D., and stated that the Indian poiico started out in the morning to arrest Sitting iiull, havipg learned that he proposed smarting for toe Bad Lands at once. Tbe police were followed by a troop of cavairy under Captain Fouchet, andiufantry under Colonel Drum. When the police reached Sitting Hull's camp on the Grand river, about forty milos Standing Rock, they found arrange- ments being made for departure. The police at once made a rush for Sitting Bull, surrounded him and, tell- ing him he was a prisoner, started at once on the trail for the agency. The old chief vnade no attempt at resistance, but hardly had bis capture been made known when his son headed a party of Bull's and attempted to recap- ture their chief. A desperate running fight ensued and the police were getting the worst of it In the skirmisb, Sitting Bull attempted to get away from his captors and to join the attacking party of his friends. He fought wildly and was killed with several of bis followers. Seven of the Indian police also fell dead and the whole band would probably have been massacred had it not been for the timely arrival of the cavalry. General Miles said last night that Sitting Bull had been dispatching cour- iers to all the those in Can- them to secure all the ammunition possible and prepare to go on the war path in the spring. When he found that preparations were being made bv the army to break up this scheme it was believed that he intended to begin fighting very soon and his ar- rest was .ordered. "I leave at once for the Black said the General, "and I shall be on the reservation in tbree days. General Brooke has reported to me that he has exhausted all peaceable means of set- tling whatever difficulties thero may be. I think the situation is serious, for the reason that there are a great many settlers comparatively unprotected and they would be the first to feel the out- break." STAXDIJTG ROCK AGKXCY, S. D., Deo. night four companies of sol- diers left Fort Lincoln for Grand river, to head off any attempted outbreak and a company from Keogh has left Dickin- son for a point further west, the plan being to completely surround the In- dians. It is not believed Bull's death will result in further disaster, as the leading chiefs at the agency were against him. PINE RIDGE AUK.XCV, a D.. Dec. The troops did not start yesterday, as Two Strike sent word that ho was com- ing in as fast as sossible. Toe old war- rior is now camped at the Catbolic mis- sion and will be here by noon to-day.

There were some minor en- counters among the rival partisans, but without important results. The Con- servatives arc quietly assisting Parnell to the extent of their power in Kilken- ny, and Mr. Stephen, the self-nomi- nated Conservative candidate is not re- ceiving much encourajprnent At Newtownards, near Belfast, the copies of Parnell's United Ireland which could be seized were gathered in aheap in the public square and burned. It is alleged that Healy has been re- quested by the Kilkenny clergy to mod- erate his tone and notintroduceso much billingsgate into bis stump speeches against Parnrll.

Arguments wore made against the proposition to tho ground that their issue Id in no way relieve the situation the othor hand, it was said, the pr-iyos.'.l xvOiild increase the national debt There were several taken on motions associated with tho bond clause which indicated cleativ thrt a large majority of the Senators present were opposed to the issuo of any new bonds. The pro- posed purchase of 12. 001, 000 ounces of silver was discussed and motions were m_ade, but not put to a vote, to increase the amount to be purchased to ounces, and to substitute for this proposition a provision for the increase of the monthly purch.-.sosof silver under the present law from 4.5 ounces to ounces. There a difference of opinion when tho caucus adjourned as to the probable fate of proposi- tion to purchase silver. One free-coin- age Senator said that there was little doubt that if anything was agreed to it would be the purchase of ounces, while free-coinage Sen- ator said that he bolievod the caucus would agree to increase the regular monthly purchases. It was arguirt by tho silver Senators in the caucus that, the Sonate must eventually come to r-.oiuage, if not at this session then at tho next session of Congress, an I thnv urg'-d that the Senate tho inc-'.it'i'jlc and agree to free coinage now. There seems but little doubt that tho proposition to pur- chase silver an I treasury1 notes on it to the National notes re- tired will bo to, and also the proposition to iiavo- free coinage if sil- ver remains at par. for a yoar: although the advocates of free coinage sav that the latter proposition is of value onlv as indicating the. sentiment in favor of free coinage. They say that if free coinage is had it will be by direct legislation.

The House sommittee investigating the charges against Commissioner of Pensions Raum continued its sessions yesterday. Cap- 'Ain Lemon testified that he had beea n the pension business here for twenty- Ive years. He denied that he had ever directly or indirectly recommended the appointment of any person in his em- ploy to General Raum. The only person whom he had ever recommended for a jlace in the Pension Office was a Mr. Whelpley, whom he recommended to Commissioner Tanner, but ho was not appointed. There wore some persons, said, now in the Pension Office who lad been in his employ, but they were appointed upon passing the civil service examination and he had nothing at all to do with their appointment. Mr. Cooper asked Lemon to furnish to him a list of the persons in his .em- ploy who had been clerks in the Pen- sion Office. Commissioner Raum said there was a man named Ramey now in the Pension Office who was in the em- ploy of Mr. Lemon when was ap- pointed to a position in the Pension 3ffice, his name being drawn from the civil service list Mr. Cooper asked Lemon to inform him what salary Mr. Ramey received while in his employ. Mr. Lemon said that he would fur- nish the information, but he did not see what bearing it had upon the matter under investigation. Mr. Sawyer asked Cooper what he expected to show by this information. Mr. Cooper said he might show that Ramey was paid Si. 500 by Captain Lem- on and took a position in the Pension Office at doing so to facilitate the business of Lemon. Mr. Lemon said that this statement went into tho record and demanded to know if Mr. Cooper stated it as a fact. Mr. Cooper replied that Mr. Lemon could not bulldoze him. Mr. Lemon said that he would teil t.he amount of Ramey's salary, but he would not give this information concerning any other person in his employ. Mr. Lemon said that he had never in- dorsed any paper for Mr. Raum' with the exception of the for Mr. Cooper askod him if there was not a note of Mr. Ranm's inthe Citizens' bank for 000. Mr. Letnon replied that he was one of the directors of this bank and he did not think it was proper for him to state tho private affairs of the customers of the bank. He refused to answer the ques- tion unless the chairman so ordered. Mr. Cooper then asked if he would give the date on which the noto referred to was negotiated. Mr. Lemon replied that it was none of his business and again refused to go into the affairs of the bank and its customers. In reply to a question by Mr. Cooper, Mr. Lemon said that he had never used his influ- ence with the directors of the bank to have Mr. Hanoi's notes discounted, but said that they were indorsed by several of the best men in the country. Mr. Cooper said that he did not pro- pose to take the bare statement of Mr. Lemon and he proposed to go deeper into the matter if be could. He asked for the amount, date and indorsers of the note in question. Mr. Lemon said that he would get the information de- sired, subject to the approval of tho committee. Edward Renaud, a clerk whom Mr. Raum had dismissed and who it is charged furnished the information for certain articles in the New York Trib- une about the administration of affairs in the Pension Office, was next called. He said that he had been discharged by Mr. Raum and afterwards Raum had made statements abont him detrimental to hit character: and upon legal advice he had decided to bring suit against Mr. for damages. ir.T.tn O..
