PARNELL'S BOLD STAND. The Irish Loader Anxious to Kemaln Where He la —A Vote of Confidence In Him Is Passed by a IJlgr Meeting of Nationalist In Dunlin. LONDON, Nov. 21.—Mr. Parnell has sent to several of his colleagues a communication to the effect that as long as he is supported by his old followers in tbe House and the Irish people he will remain at the helm of politics. He says he has never sought either office or reward of any kind from any English party, and he does not seek such assistance now. The Irish people, not English politicians, must decide the question of the leadership of the Nationalist party. At the present critical juncture he would be false to his duty to Ireland if he should desert his position because of private matters with which politics has no concern. When his mission has been accomplished and justice has been won for Ireland after its long struggle against overwhelming odds the people may choose whom they will to conduct their local affairs. If they desire others as leaders they will be able to select the men of their choice. DUBLIN, Nov. 21.—At the Nationalist meeting on Thursday a resolution of confidence in Parnell was adopted amid great enthusiasm. Timothy Healy, in seconding the motion, which was offered by Justin McCarthy, said that for Irishmen Parnell was less a man than an institution. If Parnell resigned he would be re-elected immediately. PETTIT CONVICTED. The Indtnna Wife-1'olxoner Sentenced to linprigonment for Life. CKAWFOKDSVILLK, Ind., Nov. 31,—The jury in the Pettit murder case entered court at 9 o'clock Thursday ^morning and returned a verdict of guilty and fixed the punishment of the accused at imprisonment in the penitentiary for life. Rev. Pettit was entirely overcome by the verdict breaking down and weeping like a child. Great astonishment was manifested on all sides, as it was generally supposed that the jury would not he able to reach an agreement. There appears to have been no difficulty, however, in reaching a verdict, as there was practically no disagreement among the jurors from the start. When they retired for consultation Wednesday night a ballot was immediately taken and stood eleven to one for conviction. A second ballot resulted in a unanimous verdict that Pettit was guilty. The matter of fixing the punishment was then taken up, ten jurors voting for imprisonment for life and two for tbe death penalty. On the next ballot the twelve voted for life imprisonment. The attorneys of Pettit at once guva notice of motion for a new trial. AN illuminated cat [9 among the curiosities of tbe Patent Office at Washington, P. G.

' Pmti RIDSB AQBflfor, vieil Special Indian Coitfier W Rttis^vll^ Neib., Nov. -iplne*' Kldffe age'i&oy iifcfertiinly .In imminent perH* CdtiflefS who Have arrived here report that 600-Indians are dancing at White Clay, nine miles to the east Three hundred of them are warriors, and each has a rifle strung to his back. The Indians are also dancing at Pordupine, twenty-two miles away; at Wounded Kneo, fifteen miles distant; at Medicine Rod, twenty-five miles to the east, and at Corn Creek, thirty-five miles away. All these warriors are heavily armed and are actinsr suspiciously. Their scouts can he seen from Pine Ridge riding leisurely on the crests of the Buttes. The military officers and agency officials are in a quandary. Agent Royer admitted at noon that there would surely be a battle, hut that the soldiers would not take the offensive until re-enforce- ments arrive from Forts Niobrara, McKinney and Moade. General Brooke, in command of tho troops, anticipates trouble and so does Special Indian Agent Cooper, who has just arrived here. There was a council of war Thursday morning, but no plan of attack has yet been agreed upon. It is known, however, that some of the officers advocated a speedy march on the ghost dancers for tbe purpose of breaking up the frenzied orgies now going on around the agencies. This plan will doubtless he adopted as soon as reinforcements come. If the warriors make any resistance the Hotchkiss guns will be turned oose on them without mercy. OMAHA, Neb., Nov. 81. — General Brooke and his company have reached Pine Ridge Agency. Two troops of cavalry that have been patroling the north side of the reservation all summer will join the company. The Pine Ridge Indians are greatly excited and continue their dancing. General Brooke is informed that bands of Indians are en route from Rosebud Agency to join those at Pine Ridge. An order has been received., at Fort Omaha to have the four companies remaining there ready to go to tho front at a moment's notice. The companies are E, F, G and H. These companies, so far at least as the commands are concerned, comprise some of the oldest Indian fighters in this section of the country. ROSEBUD AGENCY, S. D., Nov. 21.— There are nineteen companies now on hand and ten more companies within a day's, or, at most, two days', march away. This makes quite a respectable army, and in the opinion of traders here will be more than sufficient to drive all ideas of winter war out of the heads of the red men who have been going wild over the ghost dance. The Indians themselves do not appear to look upon the arrival of the troops as a menace to them. PIEBIMC, S. D., Nov. 21.—Captain Norville, special Indian agent stationed at this point, has returned from a trip up the Red river, where he had gone on the receipt of the report that the Indians on account of the Messiah dance were failing to attend the distributions of rations and were killing cattle. He reports that he found the Indians very much excited and keeping up their ghost dances with a zest and perseverance that is alarming. Ho found "Hump Rod" with about 800 braves of the Two Kettle band all painted up and acting in a very suspicious manner. The Indians danced all Wednesday night, and. although the night was quite cold they were without a stitch of clothing, this being one of the regulations of the new dance. KANSAS CITY, Mo., Nov. 21.—A dispatch from Pine Ridge from James N. Finley, formerly of this city, now post- trader at Pine Ridge agency, was received here Thursday night The dispatch mentions the arrival of the troops, and continues as follows: "The Indians are actually crazed with ro ligious funatacism, and the excitement at the ghost dances is of the most intense character. Add to their excitement an utter recklessness of consequences induced by blind fanatacism and you may gain some idea of the situation. It is the general opinion among the troops that they will be ordered in a duy or two to stop the Indians' ghost danoe. Then trouble will undoubtedly follow. Two or three of these dances are now in progress. A herder who Just reached here reports that several hundred Indians have congregated secretly niue miles from this place. They are all heavily armed and they are expecting the Rosebud Sioux to join them shortly. Many others have removed their families to places of safety and till are greatly apprehensive of the outcome." No white men or Indian police have seen «ny of tho dances since the Indians began making threats. Before that there was no objection to a white man's presence. Post-Trader Finley saw one dance several weeks ago in which about 280 Indians partici- ated. Men and women were joined n a great ring about a tree, and inside this circle the five or six big medicine-men kept'up their incantations. The dance began at high noon and was kept up till far into the night without pauso for eating, drinking or ist. As fast as one of the .»dians in tbe ring fell from dizziness or exhaustion he was tossed or fell forward toward the tree, many of them striking it as they dropped. Then the head medicine-maw declared them to he in a trance, and shouted to crowd about and hear the message brought from the Messiah. When they came to, each one insisted that he had seen the Indian Saviour in bis dream. THB promoters of tbe Watkin Tower fcave under consideration a proposal which, though it is somewhat suggestive of Jules Verne, Is submitted by a I well-known engineer, and is said to be quite practicable. The tower is to be I not less than 1,300 feet high, considerably loftier than its prototype at Paris. At this atmospheric level tbe air, even over London, is absolutely pure, and it is proposed that by means of machinery specially devised for the purpose, a supply of fresh air shall be drawn to the street level, and tbenoe attributed houses an d pubUs buildings atent medicines •you know the o,ld preju^icCi And the doctors--^ s6Me of hem soA bet^eeri you and us. They woum Jfke : ; you to think hat what's cured thousands won't cure you. You'd be- ieve in patent medicines if they didn't profess to cure everything —and so, between the experiments of doctors, ^trie experiments of patent nedicines that are sold only Because there's money in the 1 stuff," you lose faith in everything. And, you can't always tell the prescription that cures by what you read in the papers. So, perhaps, there's no better way to sell a remedy, than' to :ell the truth about it, and take the risk of its doing just what it professes to do. That's what the World's Dispensary Medical Association, of Buffalo, N. Y., does with Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery, Favorite Prescription, Pleasant Pellets, and Dr. Sage's Catarrh Remedy. If they don't do what their makers say they'll do — you get your money back.
