Suo- Added to the Hanks of the Ghost ci's fast of forty-five days terminated Dancers. of the Fort Berthold Reser- vation Become Affected With the Messiah Craze. Force of flostllcs in the Bar! mated at Over Reds la Indian Territory are Quiet. BISMARCK. N. D., Dec. The In- dians on the Fort Berthold reservation, unable to any longer stand aside and gee their brethren have all the fun to themselves, have at last become affected with the Messiah craze and are indulging in jfhost dacces with the same vim that characterized other demonstrations. The Bertbolds have been the most ocderlj Indians on the American conti- nent. A private letter received states that some fears are entertained from these hitherto peaceful Indians. They are under the tutelage of several Sioux from Standing- Rock, who deserted dur- ing the annual visit of the Ufirtholds to that agency a month aeo. They are be- ginning to act very strangely. and AEre.it Murphy, desiring to be on the safe side, has asked for troops. If any serious results should occur from these Indians, who are composed of the Gros Ventres, Arickarees and Mandans, he would notify all the white people oa tne reservation to leave. The Indians do not intend to break from the reservation, but will attempt to hold it against intrusioi by the whites. They want the reservation all to themselves, with no wnite men in their midst to molest them. There is a band of Mandan Indians under too leadership of the celebrated chief Crow- located on the Little Mis- souri, wuich has never yet yielded obe- dience to the Government. The Man- dans hold themselves aloof from any intercourse and do not draw subsistence from the Government. More fear is felt from the last named Indians than from those at the reservation who have so long been tho white man's friends. PINE RUDQK AOENCY, S. D., Dec. 22. The efforts to secure 400 Indians to go out and persuade the bad reds to come in peaceably to the agency was a fail- ure. Only 114 volunteered.

The cowboys along the Cheyenne and the militia claim to have killed so far twenty-four Indians. OKLAHOMA CITY, O. T.. Dec. There is no truth in the report that Kickapoos are in a ghost dance in the Indian Territory. There are only 300 Kickapoos all told, and they are on their reservation, engaged in their usual peaceful pursuits. Ghost dancing by other tribes is almost en- tirely stopped and no alarm is felt. Railroad I'.Tned. CHICAGO. Dec. Last evening the watchman discovered fire starting in the paint and repair shops of the Illinois Central railroad at the corner of Twen- ty-fifth street and South Park avenue. There were sixteon passenger coaches in the time shops, twelve in the paint and four in the repair shop and every one of them was destroyed. The loss on rolling stock alone was at least 000. The burned buildings and machin- ery in them wore worth more Two hundred painters, carpenters and car builders will be out of employment until new shops can bo built. Shot Down at II in Own Door. HiOoixsvrLtK, Mo., Dec. John Gamble, a prominent citizen living one mile north of here, was called out of bis house Friday night and shot to death. A stranger knocked at the door and in- quired for Mr. Gamble. The victim went to the door and the assassin made some inquiries of him. Gamble stepped outside, and as he did so tho man drew a revolver and fired twice. Gamble fell dead and the murderer made his escape. Threw Front <f m WICHITA, Kan.. Dec. 22. Plummer, a farmer twpnty-six years of age, suicided Sunday by throwing him- self in front of a trair. on the Midland route. Plummer jumned on the- track about 100 feet ahead of the train, raised bis head and stood facing the train with a look. Tbo engineer whistled, put on tho air brake and reversed his engine, but Plummer was rolled unier and torn to pieces. of CHICAGO, Dec. The case of C O- Stoddard, who was arrested several days ago in this city, charged with embez- zling 82.300.000 worth of bonds of the Kansas Ciiy. Arkansas Now Orleans railroad, was Saturday before Justice Prindivillc. Nobody appeared to prosecute and Stoddard -was dis- charged. Clerical Punishment.

From five p. m. until ho took bis first cup of cocoa at his pain continued to be more or less acute. When the cocoa was shortly after eight o'clock, Sucei got off the lounge and staggered to the table where the nour- ishing diet was placed. The spectacle he presented was truly pitiable. He looked like a skeleton automaton and when he smiled it was simply ghastly. Many physicians were among those in attendance and soomed much inter- ested. Succi's weight was 1048 n a P.ath Tub. DAYTON, 0., Dec. Win- ters, an ex-banker of this city, and well known in financial circles throughout the country, died suddenly at his home. this city. Saturday night Ilis pro- longed in the hath room alarmed a member of tho family, who, on enter- ing the room, discovered the doad body of the banker lying in the bath tub.

Harrinjf- ton hastened, on his arrival at Queens- town Saturday, to communicate with Mr. Parnell, and the latter is said to be much encouraged by the information which Mr. Harrington has brought from America. Sunday the two parties were busy electioneering. The priests, both those of the Oasory diocese and others from various parts of Ireland, spent the time outside of religious services in pressing thoir views on the people, and urging tho election of Sir John Hen- nessy. Allusions, more or less direct, were made from the pulpits to the pend- ing contest Parnoll expressed himself as confident of victory. Much appre- hension is felt for tho effect that defeat might havo upon his followers. Parnell was in much better form than on the previous day and evidently determined uot to disgrace the close of the campaign by any abusive language. He addressed the people on their leav- ing church and made use of language more persuasive and dignified than at any previous gathering during the struggle, fife reminded them of his many years' service and appealed to their sense of gratitude not to set '.the seal of condemnation on his life-long work for Ireland. The people listefted patiently, though the priests protested against Mr. Parnell turning Sunday Into a day of political strife and argument, and urged their flocks to go home. There was very little demonstration and all seemed desirous of putting on their best behavior. The very absence of rows is, however, considered unfavorable to Par- nell, as showing that the McCarthyltes are gaining sufficient hold to be able to restore discipline, and indications point to Hennessy's election. The most intense interest is felt in London as to the result The Liberals believe that the priests have for Parnell and that he stands no chance. On the other hand, betting inon are will- ing to back Parnell at much lower odda than a week ago, but are not ready to bet even. This will undoubtedly bo an exciting day both in London and Kil- kenny. While the official result will not be known until Tuesday, is thought that a fair idea of the result can be obtained to-night. The polls will be open until eight p. m. HEGIKA OF CONGRESSMEN. Leg'alatlve and Jouroinent Catll Alter the Holidays Will be Taken. WASHINGTON, Dec. the ap- proach of the holiday season, Senators and Representatives are beginning to leave Washington to spend Christmas at their homes, or to visit neighboring towns, and as a consequence there will be many empty seats in both branches of Congress. It is hardly probable that there will be a quorum in either house during the week, and as a matter of ne- cessity tho programme will be simpli- fied. The last Senator on Vice Presi- dent Morton's list of speakers on the Elections bill will probably have fin- ished his address by Wednesday, and on that day the Senate will probably take a recess over Christmas until the Mon- day following. No other business ex- cept tha Elections bill will be before the Secate. The absence of a quorum in the House will prevent action on any measure. Mr. Mills' resolution providing for a recess from December 22 until after New Year's has been considered by the Ways and Means Committee and action on it will be taken to-day. The consent of the Senate will be necessary in order to make the resolution effective. The probability is that the House will ad- journ to-day, until the day before or the day after Christmas, wb'-n another ad- journment will bo taken until the fol- lowing Monday.

Dec. 29. Henry A. Brown, of Massachusetts, the noted sugar tariff export, has been in Wash- ington for several days conferring with leading officials and members of Con- gress about the great out in tho duty on sugar, to go into effect next April under the new tariff law. and its effects on the revenues of the country. Mr. Brown In- sists that the loss of revenue from mak- ing sugar almost duty free, together with the bounty to be paid to sugar pro- ducers in this country, will amount to a year. He is of the opinion that it will bo found advisable and that it will be the duty of Congress to re- store fully throo-fourlhs of the present or old duty on sugar and discontinue or repeal the bounty feature of tho new law. He has no doubt ihat the rapid in- crease in production of sugar in this country will very sion che.ipon perma- nently tho price of that article to Amer- ican consumers an I that a sustained duty on sua-ar would be a powerful fac- tor in treating wit sugar producing countries "for reciprocity.
