Trinmph for Gen. Miles' Policy in the Indian Campaign. Hostile Chiefs Surrendering—There Are Yet Some Venomous Bucks Who Need Crushing. THE OUTLOOK BBIG1IT. RIDGK, S. D., Jan. 14 (via EushviUe, Neb.).—Little Wound, Little Hawk, Crow Dog and Old Calico came in from the hostile camp to talk, with General Miles, under the escort of Young-Man-Afraid-of-His-Horses. Other chiefs are expe«ted. This council is progressing satisfactorily. Colonel" Corbin, Assistant Adjutant General, announced that the chiefs have assented to the surrender of their arms. PINE KlDGE, S. D., Jan. 14.—General Miles has triumphed. The greatest Indian problem of half a century has' been solved. The commanding General has received the absolute submission of all the chiefs who have been the disturbing 1 leaders among the Brules. The reds' are pocketed in a ravine within two miles of the agency with the troops on all sides of them. Kicking Bear, Short Bull and Two Strike now say that the war is over and they are willing to do just what Miles orders. The General, has told them that in future they will not be robbed, but on the other hand they will get absolutely honest treatment at the hands of the War Department, represented here by Captain Pierce. Miles has, said nothing to the chiefs about disarmament, but with the force at his command he can carry out that policy if he so desires. Colonel Henry,- with his Ninth Cavalry and the commands of Carr, Summer. Sanford and Wells, are within speaking distance of the reds- General Brooke is on a hill to the left of the camp and is in communication by signal flags with Miles. It is hoped that the war, which has already cost millions of dollars and nearly 400 lives, is near a.n end. but until that venomous band of desperadoes in the hostile camp is either crushed in blood or forced into permanent subjection there will be no confident feeling of peace. The 500 Cheyennes who are in camp here will, it is said, be removed to the Tongue River reservation as soon as possible. The- reds have sent in word that they are hungry, and wagon-loads of provisions have been sent out. The General commanding has declared that the Chey- ennes who were on this reservation must, go to join their brethren on Tongue rivar. This means that the decision that was made by the .peace commission appointed to put these fellows together will be carried out, the veto of the chief to the contrary notwithstanding. General Miles says that he has not yet made up his mind whether or not to send the Brules back to Rosebud. The following iis Major Burke's summing up of the situation: "I have just seen Young--Man Afrald-of-His- Horses and lie is sanguine of a peaceful settlement. He Is just from the hostile camp and lias been counseling with them all night. H« says they are nervous, excited, and many,have lost relatives and Irlonda, and it may take.a day or two to get all of them Into n tranquil mood. The majority are all right but some few seem hardly able to grasp the idea that tlie whites can treat them -well after capturing them. An Indian warrior angry clean through almost always courts the opportunity to meet death when he once makes up his mind to a final effort, and he can look serenely on the last ditch. General Miles has. them in s uch a position, however, that they are dangerous only to their Immediate surroundings. "The action of the friendly Indians, who have been the majority of the Ogallalas, should be impressed on the American public and meet Government recognition. It is a^ght feature in this affair and denotes an aj;ij]ty in the future of better influence among tiem prevail ing as strongly as in our own communities.' 1 General Miles has considered several plans for disarming .the hostiles. The. one which strikes him the most favorable is to have them turn 'in their arms- thorough their chiefs, ticketed, receive a check for them, them when they want to go hunting or to a beef-killing- they can present their checks and get their guns, and when it is over return them again. This would be a recognition of their property right. Big Foot's wife, one of the women injured on Wounded Knee, died Monday night in the hostile camp. WASHINGTON, Jan. 14. — Secretary Proctor has received a letter from General Ruger, dated St. Paul. January 1, in regard to the conduct of the Indian police taking part in the capture of Sitting Bull, with a view to rewarding them for their services and also providing for the families of the policemen who were .killed in that engagement. He says: "The conduct of these men is remarkable for fidelity as well as courage, and some act of the Government in recognition of them would seem fit as to those directly concerned and. expedient for the encouraging effect it would have on all the Indians of the reservation who desire to conform to the new-conditions of their lives." OMAHA, Neb., Jan. 14.—On the assurance of General Miles that no more- danger to settlers' is anticipated, four companies of militia stationed on the frontier have been ordered to return home. There are still thirteen companies in the field, but they will be ordered home by the end of this week, unless another outbreak occurs. Mitchell Is Renomliiated. SALEM, Ore., Jan, 14.—At a. joint caucus of the Republicans of the ] House and Senate Tuesday • evening- J ohn H.- Mitchell was nominated by acclamation for pnited States Senator' to suc r ceed. himself. ; , -"/-•-• STATE AFFAIRS. Indiana Legislature Wants the Census Corrected. Attacked the Census. Ind., Jan. 15.—The Legislature on Tuesday adopted a resolution, declaring- the census, so far as it relates to Indiana, to "be "inaccurate, partisan and fraudulent," and that it l; has already advertised our great and prosperous State to the world as a non- progressive and decaying commonwealth, and has thereby done her great harm, and will, unless the false and slander- o\is impressions conveyed by such, alleged census be promptly and emphatically repudiated and corrected, continue to work irreparable injury to our State and retard her prosperity and progress." Representative Beasley, who introduced the resolution, said.in support of it that the census of 1S80 gave Indiana tt ..population of 1,978,301 and of 1890 gave her a population of 2,189,630, a gain of only 211,320, or about 10"e-10 per cent, in ten years. As'-' shown by the reports of the Auditor of State there were 553,- i4S voters in the State in 1890. The population of 1SSO showed that the percentage- of population as compared with lh& voting population was 4 3-10, and if this were true now the present population of Indiana was at least 175,000 in excess of that given by the Porter census. If Congress passed a bill now pending- it would reduce the number 'of v.Indiana Congressmen/ and her •electoral vote from 13 to 12. Such .a state of tiling's was unfair, unjust and partisan. It advertised to the world thai Indiana' was going 1 back instead of forward during the last ten years. The resolution was ordered forwarded to Congress and the President of the United States. In the House bills .were introduced prohibiting option trading; providing fortho-analysis of fertilizers; requiring all passenger trains to stop at county seats; regulating prices of natural gas. in Indianapolis; providing 'for local options: providing for ah appellate .court;; to exempt old soldiers from work on the roads: requiring- railroads to, maintain depots at'all stations; appropriating- 8300,000'for the world's fair exhibit. A resolution to investigate the killing of Blount at the Eiclimond Insane Hospital was laid on the table. The Senate spent the day considering the MeHugh-Osborn contest. At the close of a long and acrimonious debate MeHugh (Dem.) was seated.' MeHugh was sworn in. making the Senate stand 35 to 15 in favor of the Democrats and : giving them 22 hold-over Senators. / '; Kobfocd and Nearly Killed. midnight Tuesday..- John Roderer, a farmer, was attacked by three highwaymen while on his way home from town.
