Jan. 12.�?in the House in Dockery rising to a question of inv lege offered a Resolution reciting be fact of the reference of his Silver of Resolution to the committee on rules id the fact that the committee refused a report the same and directing the to emitted on rules to report the Resolute to the House fur consideration. Or. Dingley of Maine made a Point lit the Resolution did not involve a ration of privilege. Or Dockery contended it did. Or. Mckinley said whether or not the tto i Naro. Aion involved a matter of privilege it had nothing to do with Tho a Ding question. It had been referred the committee on rules and the com tie had not yet been Able to make its ppm. He had not the slightest objects to the broadest investigation. Or. Mills of Texas contended that original Resolution referred to the pm pay and integrity of the members. House did net lose jurisdiction of the ration because it referred its consider 5s to one of its committees. There no doubt a to tile Power of the the question a one of Propri Jimd this question must be considered a reference to the length of time the solution has been before the commit the Resolution was referred on the a of the session. Re he session is. Ban gone and nothing has been a i he House ought not to adjourn exculpate the innocent and red the condemnation where it rightly belonged. Adams of Illinois argued that the a Dixon under the rules involved a e. Georgia said there was press Rule authorizing the discharge committee. The original resold a a a a unquestionably a question of a highest privilege. 5sed to report the privilege v a Crisp of Geo not the representing the Oscar Wilde Tyne of statesmanship and senator Hoar As l maternal masculinity who represented the new England Peck sniff. Or. Grosvenor then took occasion to speak on the plea of no sectional ism or Texas sat a a Quot Day. The debate then drifted into general political and sectional talk in which Grosvenor arraigned the democratic party for not honouring worthy e a confederates and Spinola wanted to know Why the Northern republicans did give offices to negroes. Finally army Bill was taken up. Or. Bland offered an amendment providing that none of the appropriations for pay of the army shall be paid to officers detailed to state colleges and institutions. This was ruled out on a Point of order from which Bland appealed pending which the committee Rose and the House adjourned. The ballot b0xfraud. Report of the committee on investigation presented to the House. A sin if tongan. 12.�?the report of tile ballot Box committee which last session made extensive investigation into Ohio political affairs in connection with the alleged subscriptions by member of Congress for Stock in a Patent ballot Box was to Day presented to the House by chairman Mason. The main report. Which is signed by a1 the members of committee finds that the alleged contract was prepared by Richard g. Wood that All the signatures thereto were forged and that Frank nil Ward and Frank Davis were without evil int it it in the transaction that Wood uttered said forgery for the purport of procuring governor Foraker s rec Smenda Tion of himself to the mayor of Cincinnati for the appointment to the office of smoke inspector. The committee further finds that governor Foraker and Murat Halstead aided in uttering the said forgery by publishing it in the Cincinnati commercial Gazette but finds that neither Foraker nor Halstead in uttering the paper knew the same was a forgery. The committee finds that no one of the persons whose names appear on the said alleged contract had or has either directly or indirectly any unlawful corrupt or improper or any other connection with or interest in the ballot boxes which Are said to be the subject of the alleged contract and there never was any other contract relating to said ballot boxes in which either of these persons alone or jointly with others were in any Way interested. The supplementary report signed by All of the members except chairman Mason finds that the conduct of Wood during the negotiations with Foraker disclosed his depravity. They also believed a careful scrutiny of the face of the forged paper must have shown its false character. The High stations attained in Public affairs by the persons whose names were forged should have suggested a verification of the corrupt paper before it was uttered or published. The publication showing Campbell s name and suppressing the other signatures was almost As bad As the original falsification of the paper. The entire incident the members say is an example of political methods deserving the condemnation of All parties and a1 Good it zeus. Chairman Mason in the minority report does not agree with these additional findings. Id does not see that a careful seria Lity of the forged paper must have shown its false character. It s easy now to know in january 1891, what we ought to have known in september i ss9. Whether or not Foraker and Halstead treated Well the gentle men outraged by the forgery by not seeing them personally is a question of ethics not involved in the investigation nor does it throw any Light upon the subject As to who forged or who uttered the forgery. Being deceived is the Only offence Halstead and Foraker. They have each made a reputation and character equal perhaps to any of the gentlemen who were outraged by the forgery. Since they found they were deceived they have done ail in their Power at honorable men to make amends. To ask More seems to or. Mason unjust and he respectfully protests against the censure of his associates in the additional findings summarized above. Miles sets mad. He notifies the Hostiles they must come in at once. They say they Are willing hut object to being disarmed a bloody fight in Prospect a latest news from the front. Or. Loris mo., Jan. Post dispatch special from Fine Ridge Agency says a general Miles is determined this morning not to Parley nor Confer again with the indians Aud this morning he sent a messenger to the Hostiles camped at the Mission stating his terms. He said they must come into the Agency in Small squads and go into Camp on the grounds near the Friendly indians. He would not object of they chose their own camping grounds but the rules and the Oga lallas must not Camp together arid they must submit to the Laws governing the reservation and to the agent. It is Learned from official sources thai this its general Miles final action of the indians do not accept these terms Miles will go after them and there will be a fight sure. The indians Are at the Mission six Miles away and father jute has made arrangements with general Miles for a conference with the chiefs this morning. It is expected the indians will come in either As friends or Hostiles and a conference May determine which. Father jute came to the Agency last night and brought the news of the arrival of the indians at the Mission lie informed general Miles the indians were Iii a Friendly mood and inclined to come in peaceably. He said the chiefs would be in in the morning and there is a possibility terms might be made. The general consented to receive them and Short Bull kicking Bear Aud Little wound will Confer with him today. Father jute says the indians do not want to be disarmed. This is the key note of conference. Of general allies says they will not be disarmed it is possible there May be a peaceable settlement. There is no Confidence in their peaceful pretensions. All Day yesterday they were shooting cattle along the whole line of March. They burned their shacks destroyed their own property of every kind save their guns and ponies and these fats destroy ail Confidence in their expression of not desiring to go to War. The indians themselves partially admit the chiefs cannot guarantee to control the warriors. They say they have among them about three Hundred Young Bucks who want to sight and to Quot Ingle shot will Start them. Besides tins the indians who murdered lieutenant Casey Are known Aud when they Are taken they will be hanged for murder. They Are among th1 belligerent Young Bucks and they May precipitate a fight to prevent dying by the rope. The indians Are just As anxious to know what the White s ire going to do As the Whites a to know what Tho indians will do. Of the committee Resolution a to r be lated that he had not.

Stewart sent to the clerks desk to have printed a proposition respecting his free coinage amendment which he said. Might be offered if any one desired to do so. Tiffs proposition if adopted would take Tho place of his free coinage amendment Down to a certain Point. It is the Quot ame As that amendment in substance but has attached a proviso that All Silver Bullion not the product of mines Mills or smelters of the United states and All Silver Coin and Bullion product of Coin other than the United states shall in the discretion of i he Secretary of the Treasury be subject to a mint charge to be fixed from time to time by him the said charge not to exceed the difference Between the Market value of said Silver Bullion in London at the time of its Deposit and the coinage value thereof. The Secretary May make such regulations a i necessary to a determine whether such Bullion is the product of the United states. Tiffs proposition will be held in Reserve until some agreement is reached respecting its final disposition. It was drawn after a consultation among several senator Quot upon the theory that it would receive the support of some republicans in the Senate and House who Are favourably disposed toward an Effort to enlarge the use of Silver but Lear disaster As a result of unrestricted coinage. Senator Stewart. However is not committed to it in any Way. Having imply offered it in order to get it in print for better examination. Behring sea in the courts. Washington Jan. 12.�?the Behring sea Seal eries controversy came up in the United states supreme court to Day on a motion which has in View a judicial determination of the dispute Between the United states and great Britain Over the Seal ii Slier sos. Joseph in Choate in behalf of Thomas Henry l Ooper owner and claimant of the British Schooner w. F. Sayward seized in the Waters of Behring sea by the Revenue Cutter Rush petitioned the court for leave to file petition for a writ of prohibition to be directed to the judge of the District court of the United states in the territory of Alaska restraining him from proceeding with the condemnation and Sale of the vessel. I he object is to have tile court take up and pass upon the question of jurisprudence Over these Waters. The chief Justice gave the attorney general two weeks to file an answer. The Brief tiled by Choate begins by reciting that by the Law of nations the municipal Laws of the country have no extra territorial Force and cannot operate on foreign vessels on High seas and it is legally impossible under Public Law for a foreign vessel to commit a breach of municipal Law beyond the limits of the territorial jurisdiction of the lawmaking states that the seizure of a foreign vessel was beyond the limits of municipal territorial jurisdiction for a breach of municipal regulations is not warranted by Law of nations and such seizure cannot give jurisdiction to the courts of the offended country. The least of All where the alleged act was committed by a foreign vessel at the place of seizure beyond municipal territorial jurisdiction that by the Law of nations a British vessel sailing on the High seas is not subject to any municipal Law except that of great Britain. The court is informed that sir John Thompson her majesty s attorney general of Canada this motion to be presented with the knowledge and approval of the Imperial government of great Britain. The coming of the Hostiles. Their near approach cables Coni in a t Ion among the friendlies. Pine , I Jan. 12.�?up to noon to Day the Hostiles had not with the exception of a lot of squaws made a move toward coming into the Agency. Shortly after noon however the main Camp of the Hostiles was broken and a rapid Advance made toward Thi Point. This afternoon about one thousand of them arrived to about a mile of the pickets outside the Agency. The announcement of their arrival Waii de great commotion in the friendliest Camp. Within a Short time hundreds of squaws and children ath it red in the Vicinity of Headquarters where a View of the Bluff behind which the Hostiles Are stationed could be obtained. They waited until dusk for their Friend Quot and relatives to come in but were disappointed. As those outside remained in the Camp there. To night there is no certainty As to what the indians will do. General mile himself is in doubt As to what expect of them but confidently looks now for a settlement of the matter without further bloodshed. In fact he sent a letter to night to generals Cody and Colby commanding the Nebraska state militia informing them that ail the Hostiles Are within a mile and a Naif of the Agency and that holding but cold jut can prevent the re establishment of peace. Ile states also that he thinks the state troops May now be withdrawn with safety and thanks them for the Confidence they have afforded the people in the Frontier Homes. I of senility of a let a per Ito break. Yet the indians May get to within gun shot of the Agency and then break away again thus precipitating a Eon dict. Fear of All kinds of punishment for their misdeeds seems to have taken to session of them and it i Quot generally understood that one injudicious act on the part of the soldiers or the mad deed of some pm playable hostile would undo a the work so far accomplished. Lieutenant Taylor a of the ninety eighth cavalry has g to j out with some of ids scouts in order to Lead the indians at the proper time to places designated for their Camp within the Agency. The Ogallala will be placed near red Clouds House on the West while the rules will be sent to the Eastern Side. Where the Hostiles Are now resting the ground is rolling and unbroken Aud offers advantages to the cavalry which they did not have at wounded knee. The indians Are virtually surrounded by troops and a revolt now would prove disastrous to them. Major Whitesides with the seventh cavalry can reach any Point of the Agency in a very Short space of time. The same is True of Captain Capron with his Battery and gaining gin.-, and also of the first infantry nearly three Hundred of which have been mounted on ponies. The Hostiles Camp is at the Northern extremity of the Valley beyond White Clay Creek and at the base of the Semi Circle of Pine covered Bluffs. Their Village comprises about three Hundred Tepee although Many Are doubtless concealed in the a draws a which Lead out of the Valley in the direction of the Mission. The site is one from which tin y might quickly retire were they not followed so closely by general Brookes command. The latter is now less til an five Miles in the rear of the Hostiles. To Morrow general Brooke will press upon them More closely unless they move into the Agency. Colonel Wheaton is now about eight a Miles West of the Agency with the second infantry and coming in this Way. Colonel Onley is following general Brooke with the seventeenth infantry. A grim looking month. This is the Mouth of the pocket and a grim looking Mouth it is too. A three Inch rifled gun that can sweep the country for Miles and have a of thirty feet peeps through the breach of the earthworks on the North but which May be called the Entrance to this Mouth. Hotchkiss guns and rattling Are pointed to the Ravine which would be one of the runways of the Savages. The guns Art behind the big dirt and Stone barriers on the Butte to the East. Another Hotchkiss Sticks it Mack muzzle through the breastworks near the school House to the West and can be worked so advantageously that in Case of a Light it could sweep the Plain for a mile in a half Circle and with a three Inch Rifle on the North Butte blow red Cloud s House and Knock his outfit to atoms. Six Hundred infantry trooper arid commanders Are Here to receive the Savages when they come in front of the bayonets that Ore now moving along like the Teeth of a tremendous machine. But despite the masterly arranged cordon it is Plain that even army officers Are nervous. Civilians Are alarmed. There Are at least 15,000 heavily armed warriors in the hostile Camp. Their Vil Lage. As near As it can be estimated i two Miles Long. It is pitched in a Long winding Ravine similar to the one Custer pounced upon in is70. What shall be done with then.? what is to be done with the indians is a question which cannot yet be answered. The disposition Szemeto be to let them rest in peace. It is understood they have promised to end a delegation of chiefs to talk with Genera Mike in tile morning. It is said some of them will insist upon going to Washington to Lay the r grievance before the great father and some hold the suggestion will be respected notwithstanding general Miles Lias the settlement of the Case in his own hands. Duo element w hich May cause trouble yet is the faction lighting in the hostile Camp. A scout told an associated dress correspondent this evening that they Are still quarrelling among themselves. It is believed that general Miles will demand of the chiefs the surrender of tile leading agitate actors and ship them South As he had intended to do with big foot and then Settle with others. The wounded knee investigation. The investigation regarding the w funded knee Battle is completed and the report will be forwarded to Washington. Well posted officers say it will dispel the idea that col. Forsythe s command deliberately shot Down women and children. Private Stone one of the wounded in that engagement and an Indian named Hunts alone died to Day. Afraid of i lie the greatest anxiety arises Over the disposition to be made of the Savages should they come into the Agency without first giving Battle. It is firmly be Liev d that general Miles contemplates disarming Aud dismounting the Hostiles. Squaw men Aud half Breeds living at the Agency Are sending their wives and children to the Railroad. Old scouts Are of the opinion that such a move will precipitate the bloodiest Indian Battle that the country has Ever known. They declare it will be a hand to hand tight in which the Sioux will eventually get the worst of it. But not until their Isho armed Savages have Multi pled the horrors of wounded knee a Hundred fold. The situation is such that nobody can Prophesy the outcome sex agent Mcgillycuddy thinks there is a plot on foot. He says the so called Friendly indians Are lying almost to a Man. Even old red Clouds professions of peace a scouted. The old wretch is now v it lug goggles to Bear out Bis Asse my that by is Blind. They called him a Thunder Mouth Quot one of the incidents saturday was a serenade Given by the first regiment and Agency band of Angeles i and cal., to general Miles and stat a the first time a cig Bass Horn and cymbals were Ever heard at Pine Ridge. The spectacle was picturesque musicians in can a overcoats and fur Caps standing in the now and playing popular airs while pickets were patrolling on All sides with Winchester civil ans with six shooter strapped to their sides and Hundred. Of squaws listened to the really Fine music with stolid indifference. It did not take Long for the indians to get a name for the fellow with tile big Horn. He is known among them As Thunder mgt nth. Oil re Devil Brule. Late this morning two Yound rules dashed up to tin Agency buildings. They had just come from the Hostiles. One fellow had a Streak of Blue paint on his nose. Both wore in White shirts. They leaped nimbly off to Neir ponies Aud bolted through the crowd to general Miles Headquarters dragging their rides lie Hind them. The Leggins of the Leader had the Zodiac worked upon them in beads. Indian policemen fell upon them and disarmed them. They said they w anted to see general mile. They to re escorted to Headquarters where they were profuse in their assertions t ii at the rules meant no harm. General Miles told them to go Back to their Camp and Tell their people to surrender without further trouble. When they left the Agency grounds la y were Given their gun Quot. Then they dashed away laughing at the Indian police. These daring Fellows were not Twenty years old and doubtless came to the Agency on some mysterious Mission. Their boldness simply show the craziness of the Young dare Devil rules. Kicking Bear word denoted. St. Paul. Jan. 12�?a Post dispatch staff correspondent at Pine Ridge Agency telegraphs that kicking Bear write that he will Urr Euder. But Thi i regarded with considerable doubt by the military. The Hostiles arc moving towards Fine Ridge Agency but their Progress is slow in consequence of having some fifty wounded warriors with them. Ind Iii Cai Riidu Onset.

Owing mainly to the interference of Minnie smother in their Domestic affairs and the trouble assumed so serious a phae about a month ago that the Well known couple divided their earthly possessions Aud determined that each one should henceforth live in apparent utter ignorance of the very Elste Neof the other. Minnie however is said to have taken very Little time in making the discovery that her Mother although very Well in her proper place is not altogether an acceptable substitute for a husband. Hence it is with a knowledge of these facts Mutual friends of the couple Are now engaged in an Effort to bring them together which bids fair to be successful. Croup huh lost its terrors. Or John if.

Of a organization is perfect and All we have agreed upon can be successfully carried Gould said a a in a always Atis with the present Illinois Assembly not to choose a senator. Six Kingfield Jan 12�?th will be a great week in legislative and political circles. The House and Enate have organized Ami their committee will be announced before Long. Little or nothing except the transaction of routine by i Ness can be accomplished until the committees get at work. Probably three Hundred Bills will be dumped into the legislature this w. Elk. The most important matter the House a to consider will be the report of the committee on rules Ana its discussion will begin about wednesday. The main question which now looms up greater than Ever is the election of a senator. Or. Farwell will probably be Here before Many hour Roll by. It will be pretty hot among the republicans and a senatorial caucus will probably be held thursday night. Committees will Heap pointed by both House and Senate with Power to take Sci a action relative to the holding of a caucus a May seem politic. Some of the country members do not want a nomination to be made at ail and Are opposed to the holding of a caucus. The committees will probably be announced and a meeting held tuesday night to consult about the advisability of holding a caucus. There will it is thought be a caucus a senator far Wells friends insist that custom and precedent dictate a nomination and it would be a Trange procedure for the Republican to go into a senatorial election without a candidate endorsed by a party caucus. Or. Fare. Is a candidate for re election and i Friend will ask the Republican party to endorse him a such. He must be Well aware of the fact that he cannot get a single one of the three f. M. B. A. Votes and he cannot very Well be elected without them. These of m ii a. Men have had a merry time of it since they came into prominence. They have been cajoled and wheeled and flattered by representatives of All parties. Sticks of senatorial Timber have been suggested to them times without number. candidates have them at their Homes and ate of their Stor a and whittled Down their fences and praised the plumpness of their live Stock the beauties of their wives and children and All that Ort of thing. Neighbor Streeter a spent the greater part of i time since the result of the election a announced in going the rounds of tiny three. It might be a Well to state in this connection that the three Farmer men think very seriously of voting for or. Streeter who a in some Way or other impressed them with Lite idea that he is a big Man and a the making of a big statesman. They want to vote for Streeter and will probably do so when the time come. The republicans won t vote for the gentleman and the democrats have it in for him for his actions in the thirty fourth Assembly.
