PINE RIDGE AGENCY, S. D.,*Jan. 15.— The hostiles all broke camp at ;m early hour and came into the agency and took the positions designated by General Miles'for them. There was no demonstration. Every thing went along smooth. They- are all peaceful, but hungry. This will end the trouble. Prank Grourard, the scout, estimates the number of lodges at 742, though he can not estimate the number of Indians. The latter can not, however, be less than. !;.500. The Indian camp two miles from the agency t has been broken up. General Brooke has been ordered to march with his command from below the mission to this point. A part of his command wil I camp on the west bank of \Vhite Clay, extending north of the Indians, while another will flank them on the west and south. The advance guard of the hostiles had scarcely reached the agency when Big Head sent word that he had collected the arms of his followers and wanted to surrender them to the agency. When the weapons came in they were found to consist of simply two short guns, a heavy rifle and a broken ear- bine, two Sharp rifles and one AYinches- ter—nine guns in all. This surrender is an evidence that the Indians do not propose to give up all their guns, and that they have hidden their best weapons on the hills. On this basis, the entire hostile band would be expected to give' up in the neighborhood of 100 grins, when it is known that every buck is the owner of a weapon. American Horse, Standing Bear, White Bird and Spotted Horse, friendly chiefs, arc no\v asking protection from the hostiles who have camped among them. It is not likely that General Miles will be satisfied with the disarming 1 of the Indians on the basis of I<r^ Roads' surrender. If he should riot be, some people here consider that the'difficulty s f .IT from being- settled. Wednesday afternoon a second delegation of hostile chiefs arrived from the camp. It. comprised Two Strike. Kicking Bear. Lance High Hawk and Eagle Pipe. They had a talk with General Miles, and the same subjects were considered as at the morning session. It was agreed that the hostiles would leave their present camp and pitch their tepees on the west side of White Clay creek, immediately opposite and less than half a mile from the agency buildings. It was also decided that the Indians would surrender their arms to their respective chiefs and that the weapons would be turned over to Agent Pierce, the latter to receipt for them, placing the name of each man. upon his gun. The weapons would then be sold and the proceeds returned to the Indians. It was also decided that tha chiefs would .attempt to control their young men, and failing in this that they would themselves arrest those who refused to act as good Indians and turn the,m over to the agent. General JUles was pleased with the friendly disposition manifested by the chiefs and proposed to allow them seven, days in which to redeem their promises. A.s an evidence of his goodwill the General, has.sent to the hostiles several thousand pounds of flour and several hundred pounds of coffee and s\igar. The General also considered with them several of the important contracts which, the. Indians claim, have been violated, and guaranteed that in future those contracts would be complied with to the letter. At the conference the Indians demanded the abolition of Rosebud agency and the establishment of one more at Pine Ridge. The reason they advanced for this radical move was the fact that the Indians were continually moving from ' one agency to the other. contrasting. the methods of each and longing for the comforts of Pine Ridge as compared with the many disadvantages which they claimed to have experienced at Rosebud. This .proposition General Miles promised to consider. General Miles . demanded the surrender of the young men who had killed Lieutenant Casey, and they promised to accede to the demand. WASHINGTON-. .Jan. 15.—A dispatch has been received at the War Department from General Miles asking permission to come to Washington with i delegation of hostile chiefs, who want to treat for terms of peace. The request should continue ifs policy undisturbed by changing administrations. The appeal also recommends that officers be detailed to serve as Indian, agents and that sufficient money be appropriated by Congress to permit the education of all Indian youth and the maintenance of a thoroughly effective service.

DEXVEIJ, Col., Jan. 15.—At 1 o'clock a. m., as Police Inspector Hawleywas leaving the i Legislature's Hall, where he had been 1 trying to quiet the mob. he was met by Harley McCoy, one of tha toughest characters in the city.
