Jj; ENCAMPED AT MXE HlDGli. PIKE RIDGE AGENCY, S. D., Jan. 10.— The disarming of the Sioux now here has already begun. It gives promise of being 1 as much of a farce as have been all similar moves in this direction. The friendly Ogallalas are first to surrender their arms, Big- Road's band having- consented to have their rifles taken and tagged by Agent Pierce. But it is a noticeable fact that the g-uns that even these so-called friendlies turn over are of antique pattern. There are no improved "VYin-- chesters or Spring-fields. These are being- kept by the Indians, but the Government is welcome to the old, worn out shotguns and ramshackle rifles that would shoot around a corner. Big Road gave up nine old broken Spencer rifles, but he promised to send a wagon load to the agency buildings before long. Some of the weapons were loaded to the muzzle with slugs. Under the conditions of the surrender the hostiles are to give their guns to their chiefs who are to bring them to Agent Pierce. It is certain, however, that the best- weapons will be cached and that the guns the Government will get will be only fit to go to the junkshop. The other conditions of surrender are that there is to be but one chief and his name is General Nelson A. Miles, whose commands must be promptly obeyed in the future, and that all the children of the Sioux must be enrolled on the rosters of the industrial schools. Since the surrender of Big Road of the nine rifles referred to nothing has been heard.from the hostile camp. All the guns, rifle and Hotchkiss are, however, trained in that direction, and indications of life there will be watchedwith interest. The Indians of Big Eoad have followed in the matter of giving up their miserable weapons the example of >Big Foot's warriors af the time of the fight on Wounded Knee. It is doubtful whether General Miles will order a search of their tepees for more arms. There is also a certainty that he will not seek for hidden weapons in the Bad Lands or near the camp sites which the hostiles have abandoned. Such being the case, the Indians will scarcely miss the weapons which thev have surrendered or will The Legislature. I.N'DlAN-.vroi.is, Ind., Jan. 17.—Speaker Niblaek, who has been troubled rnnch in selecting the members of the different standing- committees of the House, has announced his appointments. The chairmen of the more important committees are: Oppenheim, on ways and means; Beasley, on judiciary; Kfilley, on labor; Curtis, on. apportionment, and McCullough, on affairs of the city of Indianapolis. A resolution was ' unanimously passed authorizing the Treasurer of the State to borrow whatever sum of money is necessary to meet the current expenses of the Legislature. A concurrent resolution was adopted for appointing a committee to confer with the Legislatures of agricultural States with a view to adopting a uniform law for ..taxing 4 mortgages. A bill was introduced providing that illegitimate- children shall bear the names of, their fathers; also a bill stricking out the at- 'torneys' fees clause; in promissory notes. , Judge llench created a sensation by introducing a bill making it unlawful for any y tate. county or city oflicer, member of the Legislature or judge of a court to uccept a pass from a railroad company. He said that -he had received a pass since coming ;to this city, and had no doubt that : cvery member of the House had a pass in his pocket, adding that all the State officers from Governor down were in the-habit of accepting and using passes. He denounced the custom as a disgrace to the State and one that ought not-to be continued. A resolution was introduced authorizing the preparation of a bill reducing the munber of judicial circuits in the State from fifty-eight to forty. • A political discussion was inaugurated in the Senate by a resolution calling- for an investigation into tfie management of the Eastern Hospital for the Insane. There was some question as to the expediency of such .course at this time, both among the majority and the minority, but a joint committee of nine, four from the Senate and five from the House, was finally appointed. A bill was -introduced making it a felony for'any bank officer to. receive a deposit when he knows that the bank is insol- f ent, and a failure within thirty days lifter receiving a deposit is made^rima : facia evidence of insolvency at the time the deposit was accepted.

Thursday afternoon General Brooke, accompanied by Major Benham and Aids Truitt and Roe, came in. General Brooke called on General Hlles and later returned to his camp, which is pitched but a short distance oxttside the northern breastworks. His command ne^r the mission has been divided and all of the divisions are either moving' in this direction or have already arrived. It is said that- tha hostiles are in very bad humor. They are suspicious, of the military and are exercising- the same vigilance in guarding against a surprise as if they had not agreed to come ill. While every thing- looks like peace, the India>ns have now a better position.than ever before if they choose to stampede. Some of the bucks told an Indian scout that in their present place they had the agency at their mercy. This is probably bravado, pure and simple, born of the fact that being- conquered they wan'f, to make a last show of spirit. Colonel Forsythe has received a dia- mond-hilted sword from settlers in the vicinity of the reservation. The Colonel will not make an acknowledgment of its receipt until after the report of the investigating committee appointed to look into the Wounded Knee affair has been made public.

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind., Jan. 17.—The most decided sensation of the session was sprung in the Legislature when a special message from the Governor was read, charging Warden Murdock, of the northern prison, with embezzling about 840,000. The messag-e says that the warden has "refused to paydnto the Treasury of the State a cash balance for the year 1SSS of $23,667.52, and for the year 1800 a balance of §17,010.53, and still, although demanded, refuses to pay the same." He also says that he is informed that the' warden has for years past sold and unlawfully converted, to Ms own use the slops of the prison amounting to a large sum. He therefore requests that a special non-partisan committee of the two bodies be appointed .to investigate the charges against the • warden and report to the present session all the facts in the case, together \vith the amount of money unlawfully used by. Murdock. The message led to a bitter discussion in both branches, the Republicans favoring 1ilie special committee recommended by the Governor and the Dem- crats contending that the regular committee on the northern prison should investigate the matter. The House finally referred it to the regular committee by a decided party vote, though some of the 'Democrats voted with the Republicans. _ Indiana State Typographical Union.
