INDIAN CHIEFS IN CUSTODY. General Miles Taking Hostile Savages to Chicago as Prisoners — They Will B« Kept at Fort Sheridan an Hostages for the Good Behavior of the Kc»t of the Sioux at rine Kldge Agency. CHICAGO, Jan. 27.—Geneva! Miles is determined to'put an end, so far as possible, to Indian troubles. He has in custody thirty of the worst mischief makers on the Pine Kidge , reservation, and is bringing them to Chicago. They will be kept under guard at I'ort Sheridan, as hostages for the g-ood behavior of those left on the reservation. • It is also the General's belief that" ivith these mischief- malters out of the way the other Indians will be more inclined to behave themselves. General Miles left Eushville, Xeb.. Monday night with his prisoners under escort of tjvo companies of infantry. The party is traveling by special train. In all there are forty Indians in the party. Ten of these will to go to Washington with General Miles for a, conference. The other thirty, as stated, will be taken to Fort Sheridan. The names of the Indians who will go to Washington are Young-Man- Afraid-of-llis-llorses, American Horse, Fire Thunder, and Hump, of the friend- lies; of the hostiles, Little Wound. Big Road, He Dog, Two Strike, High Pipe, and High Hawk. The more peaceable of the Indians left on the reservation are to be enlisted in the regular army and trained as soldiers. They will be subjected to the same discipline, wear the same uniform and get the same rations, etc., as the white recruits. As an Indian is rarely troublesome when he has something- to busy himself at, it is hoped in this way to keep their minds from mischief. Indians are natural soldiers; they love the glitter of uniforms and the use of arms, and should' make an efficient branch of the army in iron tier'service. CAMERON'S SILVER MARGINS. The Pennsylvania Senator Admits Speculating, but Thought It Right. WAsnrNOTO.v, Jan. 27.—In the silver- pool investig-ation Monday Senator Don Cameron took the witness' stand. Mr. Dingley suggested to the. Senator that perhaps he had seen the testimony of Senator Vest and Mr. Littler before the 'committee. The Senator replied, that he had no concealment to make regarding his purchase of silver. The testimony of Mr. Littler .was substantially correct. ,He bought •silver, just as he would buy any other commodity. He had puruhase'd it without" much thought. He had bought through Mr. Littler early.in June about 100,000 ounces, on a margin of SS,000.. before the bill passed the Senate^ and gave an order to him to sell in. ten days or two weeks. He kept no memorandum of the transaction. So-'far as he recollected the silver was disposed of in June. His profits were about SI. 1.00. He had no knowledge of any. other Senator or Representative, or' Government official having any interest in the purchase of silver, and knew nothing about the exploits of the silver pool. To Mr. Rowell the witness said there had been n.o talk between him and' other Senators as to the organization of a silver pool, and to Mr. Oates he said that no member of the House or Senate had asked him to exert his influence to prevent the present investigation or to get Mr. Dockery to withhold his resolution asking for it. In response to further questions Mr. .Cameron said' Senator. Vest- was mistaken in his testimony when he said that lie '(Cameron) bought, the .silver after the bill had passed the Senate. MR.

WILER& WISE OF 315 Fourth Street. THE BEHEING SEA. Attorney-General Miller on the Su- jourt Case. Great Britain's Position Is Untenable —The Question of Jurisdiction a Political One. AGA1XST JOHN BULL. WASHINGTON, Jan. 27.—The brief of Attorney-General Miller in reply to. the application of the Canadian Government for a writ of prohibition in the case of the W. P. Sayward, libeled for catching' seal in Kehring sea,forty-nine miles from shore, has "been filed with the Supreme Court.'- The position of the 1 United States Government is thus stated briefly: . . • . The Government or the United States op-: poses the filing of a petition for a writ of prohibition to the district court of Alaska in this ease fertile following reasons: First, that the- Supreme Court has no power, in any case to issue a writ of prohibition to the Sitka court, because it is not a distrfct -court ot the United States, being tnerely a Territorial •ourt. He argued, further, that the question ol jurisdiction of the Alaska court, which the pe-. titioners seek to present, can not be raised on the record of the admiralty proceedings on file with the Supreme Court because the lace of these proceedings shouldprove jurisdiction In the Alaska court, and alter .sentence in such causes 'heard argued, prohibition "will not issue." In concluding his argument, he held that, conceding all the*facts' averred in the petition, lha question of jurisdiction of the Alaskan court - depends upon the extent of the dominion of the United States in the Behriag sea. In this, he maintained. Is a political question to be decided bythe political department-of the Government—the Executive and Congress, both of which Saye decided against petitioner's contention and this decision, he held, must be conclusive uoen the judiciary. No consideration, whatever, the Attorney.-General said, had been given in bJs answer to tho question of international law, which is now and has been for the past six years the subject of diplomatic correspondence between Great Britain and the United States with ret.-, erence to the right - of this country to •assert a territorial jurisdiction, in Behring sea to the extent of protecting its seal fisheries beyond the three-mils limit ordinarily fixed as the boundary of territorial jurisdiction of countries bordering on the sea. Such a question, the Attorney-Reneral respectfully insisted, is not withinttie cogniz ance of the Supreme; Court, and he theref6re did not discuss it. ^ Stiilo a^tulo to U<-uUi.
