Neb., Dec. and early were the troops up Monday morning. At eight o'clock they were ordered to be in readiness to move. At that hour the cavalry and dis- mounted troops were massed about the Indian village, the Hotebkiss guns overlooking the camp not fifty away. Colonol Forsythe ordered all tne Indians to come forward away from the tents. They came and sat in a half cii- cle till counted. The dismounted were then thrown around them. Com- pany K, commanded by Captain Wal- lace, and Company B, Captain Varnum. The order was then given to twenty Indians to go and pet their guns. Upon returning it was seen that only two puns were bad. A detachment at once began to search the village, resulting in thirty-eight guns being found. this task was about completed, th9 Indians, surrounded by companies K and B, began to move. All of a sudden they began firine rapidly at the not twenty feet away. The troops were at a great disadvantage, fearing shoot- inf of their own comrades. The Indian men, women and children then ran to the south, tho battery firing rapidly as they ran. Soon the mounted troops were after them, shooting them down on every aide. Tho engagement lasted fully an hour and a half. To the south many took refuge in a ravine from which it was difficult to dislodge them. It is es- timated chat the soldiers killed and wounded about fifty. Just now it is im- possible to state the exact number of dead Indians. There are many more than fifty, however, killed outright The soldiers are shootin? the Indians down wherever found, no quarter being given. Captain Wallace, of Troop K, was killed and Lieutenant Garlington, of Arctic fame, was shot through tbe arm at tbe elbow. The troops are still firing from the camp and pursuing the enemy in every direction. To say that it was a most daring feat, 180 Indians attacking 500 cavalry, ex- presses the situation but faintly. It could only have been insanity which prompted such a deed. It is doubtful if either a buck or a squaw out of Big Foot's band will be left to tell tbe tale of their treachery. The troops of the Seventh cavalry have once more shown themselves to be heroes in deeds of dar- ing. Single-handed conflicts were seen all over the geld. The death of Cap- tain Wallace causes much regret. The poor fellow met his death by a blow on the head from a war club. PISE RIDGE AGENCY, S.D., Dec. Asecond fight occurred near this agency yesterday afternoon. One of Colonel Forsythe's troopers of the Seventh cav- alry was fired upon by some Indians who went out from tbe Rosebud camp. near Vine Ridge. Thiscacued askirmi h in which two soldiers were wounded. The Indians who were camped noar where this skirmish took place moved west to a creek near the agency. Owin? to the absence of the cavalry there is great trepidation here. Indian scout; who have just come in say that but few of Big Foot's band are alive. Rusiivn.i.K, Neb., Dec.

At this juncture Mrs. Cawley stepped up and said: "The Hun is all right" "Yes, you say he is all said the husband. "I believe you and the Hungarian are thicker than you ought to be." The woman resented the insult Cawley attempted to strike her and the Hungarian interfered. The husband picked up a revolver from behind the bar and fired a bullet into tbe woman's head. Ue then shot the Hungarian through the heart Then, as if seized with remorse, be gazed upon the two prostrate forms before him and said: "O, my God, what have I He then turned the revolver to his own breast and fired two shots.
