Commissioner Morgan showed this tele- KIam to the president last evening president said that he had regarded Sitting Bull as the great disturbing ele- ment in his tribe, and now that he was out of the way he hoped that a settlement of difficulties could be reached without further bloodshed Sitting Bull'i Career. Sitting Bull, the son of Jumping Bull, was born in Dakota m 1837 From his boyhood he was a leader among the dis- contented and lawless Sioux, and often opposed the chiefs who were on friendly terms with the government After the manaacre in Minnesota lu 1862 many hith- erto peaceful Indians joined the band of Sitting Bull, who kept up a constant war- fare against the settlers of the frontier Many vain attempts were made to bring him into subjection. In 1868 a treaty was made with the Sioux by a special commis sion, by which they ngrcod to sell tbe tract wtst of the Missouri river and north of the and to restrict themselves to the reservation assigned to them The terms of the treaty were carried out by the government and by most of the In- dians. Several roving bands never ac- knowledged the concession, and commit- ted depredations upon white settlers from time to time Sitting Bull was the most implacable and the most aggressive of tbe malcontents maintaining his hostile atti- tude not onlv toward the representatives of the government, but toward those tribes of his own people who rejected his supremacv. and his policy of dealing with the whites. In 1874 he drove the Crows from their reservation, and in the year attacked the settlers of Montana The Killing ot Custer. Finally the interior department ordered him to remove with his band to the reser- vation by Jan 81, 1876 He did not obey, and on Feb 1 the interior department turned him over to the department of war In March an expedition under Gen Crook destroyed tbe vilUge of Horse's band in the Yellowstone valley Hostili- ties were interrupted on account of cold weather On Jane 25 Gen Caster, with 600 men of the Seventh cavalry and 400 infantry, met a force of or Sioux al the Little Big Horn river Custer and the four com panics under his immediate command were killed, and the remainder of the whites put to flight Gen Terry advanced upon the hostile Sioux, who fled northward Sitting Bali with a part of his band making his escape into British territory Through mediation of Dominion officials he sur- rendered on a promise of pardon in 1880. In July and August, 1888 m a conference at Standing Rock, S U he influenced his tribe to refuse to relinquish Indian lands Since that time he bus remained defiant, although the majority of his people have accepted the domination of the white men and have refused to recognize him as a leader The decline of his influence has eml tered the old chief all the more, but has not lessened his enmity to those whom he regarded as the foes of his race Told a Different Story.

John Statement. Mr John Dillon issued a statement lasl night in which he says "In the miserable quarrel now going on m Ireland my main object has been from the onUet to induce both sides to abstain from all bitterness ol language which might render it difficult for us to flght together m the fut- coinrades against the enemies of Ireland as we have done for the last ten years And with this view I used any influence -possessed to prevent the war being earned into Ireland until all possible means of bringing about a compromise had been ex- hausted "1 am sorry for this reason that the KI1 kenny election has been precipitated, and I am strongly opposed to any personally offensive attacks upon Mr Parnell, al though it must be admitted that the cruel ly unjust charges he 1ms leveled against members of his party, and the extraordi- nary vmlance of the methods by which he has sought to suppress all expression of opinion hostile to himself, rendeiB it very diftiuilt for his opponents to maintain an attitude of moderation An End to Home Bale. Now that Mr Parnell has insisted on challen_iux public opinion in Ireland I trust the Irish people will let their opinion be known in no uncertain fashion U tliey (leclaie for Mr Paruell's leadership thet must do so on the platform of his manifesto and his speeches at Dublin and Cork, uud that would mean a definite end lei our time to all hope of winning home rule through the good will of the English people And there is only one other way of is by flguting for It. "In other woids, Mr Purnull invites the people to abandon the policy by which has led them for the last ten years and to adopt a policy which must end in insur it ends in anything I believe that this new policy means the destruction of all the work of the last ten years The language used in Ireland on both sides disgusting and humiliating to every trut friend of only calculated to (luerttlie minds of the people from the true issue before them That issue is not a personal one, but it is a question of pub He rlohcj, ami it is an exceedingly simple one If Mr P irnell persists in refusing tc n tire from tlie leadership, the lory parry will win at the general election by such a mnjorit} as will condemn Ireland to an other seven years of coercion, and destroy all hope of g lining home rule by parlia mentary notion In our tune The Only QneHtlon to Be Considered.
