C, Oct. 27.— [Special.]— Reports just received by the Interior Depart - ' jneni from the Standing Roci Agency in Jiorth Dakota indicate that the "Indian millennium " craze is fast increasing. The greatest Sitting Bu'l f of the Sjpux, and they !. - • This superstition, Agent James McLaughlin states, is derived from the more southern Sioux, and is no doubt the same craze that has been agitating the Shoshones in Wyoming and the Cheyennes and Arapahoes in the Indian Territory. Sitting Bull appears to be the high priest and leading apostle of this latest Indian absurdity, and he is the chief mischief - makcr at the agency. Other Indians prominent in the matter are Circling Bear, Black Bird, and Circling Hawk of the Standing Bock Agency; Spotted Elk of the Cheyenne River Agency; and Crow Dog and Low Dog of the Rosebud Agency. Sitting Bull's influence as a disturbing element seems to have grown worse during the last year, and this is partly accounted for, the Agent ^nti Brooklyn, Mrs. N.C.Welden, who went to the agency in June, 1889, announcing herself as a member of Dr. T. A. Bland's society, the Indian Defense Association. She, with Dr. Bland, bitterly opposed the ratification of the sale of the 6urp\us lands of the Sioux Reservation by the Indians, and that pave the Sioux visitor to her house, and grown more insolent and worthless every visit, Mrs. Welden's gifts enabling him to give frequent feasts to the Indians, thus perpetuating old customs and engrafting upon theii superstitious nature this additional absurdity .of the " new Messiah " and the " return oi the ghosts."

Upon learning of his arrival there I sent a detachment of thirteen policemen, including the Captain and Second Lieutenant, to arrest and escort him from the reservation, but they returned without executing the order, both officers being in a ^da^^ndition^and fearing - the powers of Sitting Bull was insolent to the officer* and made threat* against certain members of the force, but said that the visitors would leave the following day.

Upon the subject of the improvement of the personnel of the service Commissioner Morgan says that wherever it could be done without too great hardship he has endeavored to remove those who were immoral, incompetent, inefficient, or unfaithful. No one has been discharged on account of politics or religion. Great improvements have been made at the Government industrial schools. Upon the subject of Indians in the public schools the Commissioner says that, Depopulation, he is desirous of bringing the In dian school system into relation with that of the public schools.

The cost of maintenance for the year ending Dec 31, 1889, was $117,328 ; the per capita cost was $173.88. The Insane Asylum was found badly, overcrowded and inadequate for the proper care of patients. About 750 patients can be comfortably housed, while 1,084 are now confined there. In nearly every room were two patients. The crush will be relieved by the erection of four detached wards. Mr. Wines are not authorized by the laws of Illinois, and therefore, under this imperfect legislation, a patient temporarily committed to the institution may be retained in it during the term of his natural fife. The character and qualifications of the attendants of both sexes are declared to be far below the average in the State hospitals. This state of affairs is attributed largely to politics, which is allowed to enter into the appointments. MUCH DAMAGE CAUSED BY HIGH TIDES. Many Points Aloni Completely Flooded.
