D., Jan 9.— General Brooke, from his camp on White Clay creek, writes General Miles that he has been notified that many of the principal men and chiefs now on that creek will visit General Miles today. It was expected that General 'Miles would hold u conference with Red Cloud, who came in Thursday morning, but the expectation was not realized. The General had decided that ho would hold no more talks with the aged chief, as he hud given him the ultimatum several days ago to abandon the liostiles or suffer the consequences. The in-rival of the, old man is considered an evidence of his good faith, as is also the. effort he made to save Lieutenant Casey's life, by warning him of his 'danger. lied Cloud told of u fight between the Ogallalus and the lU-nles shortly aftei the killing- of Casey. The former made an effort to separate from the lirules and return to the agency. Tito latter objected and tired at them, but no one was injured. Thursday morning about 200 of the Ogallulua succeeded in forsaking the lirulijs and came into the agency. Young- Man - Afruid-of - His - Horses, with several members of his band. returned Thursday from a friendly visit to the Crows and was granted an audience by General Miles. Buffalo Bill, attended by Buckskin .lack, arrived at noon from Kushville. He was warmly greeted by several Irmulred Indians who thronged about the sutler's store. He bore a letter from Governor Thayer to General Miles setting forth Colonel Cody's connection with the State militia and assuring the General of the hearty co-operation of the State troops. Yanktou Charley, now employed as a scout here, brings particulars of the murder of Lieutenant Casey, of the Twenty-second Infantry of General Brooke's command, near the hostile camp Wednesday. The Lieutenant had started out to visit the hostilcs in order to induce the chiefs to come in and talk with General Brooke. He passed a small band of Ogullalus. who were butchering, and proceeded further, followed, however, by two of the Indians, who appeared to be friends. He was shortly afterwards met by Pete Richards, son- in-law of Red Cloud, who had been sent by the latter to -warn him not to approach the liostiles, as it was dangerous to do so. Casey said he would ride to the top of a little knoll, where he could get a view of the hostile camp. Richards dissuaded him, and he and Casey turned around and departed. Just then Richards heard a shot, and, turning back, saw Casey fall from his horse, the bullet having passed through the Lieutenant's head. The shot was fired by the younger of the two Ogallalas who had followed Casey. Richards would have shot the murderer but his cartridges would not fit his gun. Thursday night General Brooke sent out a detachment under Lieiiten- unt (Jetty to recover the remains. The body was found stripped but not mutilated. It was borne to Oelrichfi, whence, it will be sent to Fort Keogh, Mont. DKXVKH, Col., Jan. 9.—A Salt Lake City special to the Rocky Mountain News says: A special from Pocatcllo .says the town is in a great state of excitement over the action of the Shoshone Indians on the reservation. Last night they indulged in a war danc# and otherwise evinced a desire for bloodshed. The chief, Mayer Jim, declared that the Indians would fight, giving as his reason that the "bad Indians get heap grub and blankets; good Indians get nothing. Indians heap mud; will fight." The people are fieeing from the city for safety. The Indians are in war-paint and can not be restrained. The latest advices say: The Governor's guards and the United States cavalry at Boise City have been notified to repair to Pocutello us soon as possible and by this time they are thought to be en route. The town is in a state of wildest confusion. The place i.s almost entirely destitute of arms and a force of not over tiOO men is all that can be mustered for service. The ranchmen and cowboys from the surrounding country are assembling to the rescue. Recpaests from Blaekfoot, Idaho, for transportation of arms have been sent to the Union Pacific authorities here. People of Pocatello are pleading with the railroad people for the trains to remove their families from the town. REFUSED HIS SEAT. PERISHED FROM COLD.

LINCOLN, Neb., «Tan. 0. — The joint session of the Legislature for the purpose of opening, canvassing 1 and publishing the returns of the late election was held Wednesday, and for the greater- part of the time the wildest anarchy reigned. The Alliance members had a clear majority, but the Democrat!! and Republicans were not willing to quiotly lay down their hands, nntl a fight was made. The afternoon was spent in wrangling and nothing was accomplished, the Republican and Democratic members being able to keep the Alliance members from bringing 1 the contest casiis up in the canvass of the returns. When tlio joint convention met Speaker Elder, of the House, insisted that he was the proper presiding ofTlccr. LiC'Utcnant-Govcrnor Meiklejohn. presiding officer of the Senate, however, took possession of the speaker's; stand and announced that he was the proper presiding 1 officer. This led to much confusion, and a recess was finally taken until morning. All the doors of the representative hall were closely guarded terday morning, and none members of the Legislature, officers and persons having ness inside were admitted. Alliance members had taken session of the House at 6 o'clock in the morning. They placed the speaker in the chair and put a cordon of assistant sergeuuts-at-urms around him. Lieutemmt-Governor Miekeljohii got in through the cloakroom and was served with an order of ejectment, [but he defied the officei and was not taken into custody. Both sides had a force of sergeants- at-arms within call, and any attempt on either side -to proceed with the canvass would have precipitated a row. To avoid this a committee from each party was sent with a statement of the case to the Supreme Court, and the House waited several hours in suspense for a decision as tc which officer had the constitutional right to preside. Fifty • sergeants-at- arms were appointed and thousands of people besieged the doors. Governor Thayer called out the militia to suppress the disturbance at the State tlouse. The Supreme Court issued a writ of mandamus compelling the speaker to canvass the returns. This is a point in favor of Governor-Elect Boyd. Sheriff McCloy served the writ on the speaker only after a pitched battle. He was guarded by a squad of police and Captain Carder's clothes were torn off, but after smashing hats and heads with their clubs the officers secured an entrance and served the writ. Lieutenant- Governor Meikeljolm then declared the session adjourned, and Republicans and Democrats filed out of the house. Mr. Elder then called the Alliance. members to order and directed the roll to be called. Mr. Elder called the eighteen Senators and fifty-five Representatives of the Alliance to order as a joint session, but Attorney-General Leese advised them to submit to the. orders of the court. Nevertheless, Elder was declared the presiding officer of the joint session, and the Alliance men started to begin work. Governor Thayer tried to quiet the crowd, but with no effect. The militia cleared the State House grounds, but the people crowded by them every time they could and a howling mob surrounded the capitol. The proceedings at the afternoon session were less sensational than those of the morning. The mandamus of the Supreme Court sobered .the radical Alliance men and a spirit of moderation was manifested. At (3 p. m. the Independents were in their seats, but transacted no business until the entire body was present and the Lieutenant- Governor appeared and called the convention to order. A number of conciliatory speeches were made, and the Independents, seeing that they could not gain their point by instituting then- contest before the canvass of the vote, offered no further obstruction to business. The speaker of the House proceeded to open the returns and the Democratic candidate for Governor (Boyd) and the Republican State ticket, with that one exception, were found elected on the face of the returns. A resolution was then passed, receiving the full Alliance vote, declaring that the canvass had been conducted under protest and that the Legislature in nowif.e recognized the election of the officers who had been returned as receiving the highest number of votes. The officers, however, were sworn in promptly by Chief -Justice Cobb. The contest will now go on as prescribed by law. There i.s a prospect that the Legislature will unseat every one of the now ofiicers. Matters were further complicated Thursday night. At S o'clock (Jovernor- elect Boyd called on Governor Thayer and was informed that the latter would not give up the office on the ground that Boyd was not u citizen of the United States and was therefore not eligible. Governor Thayer has barricaded the executive office and remains inside with police and a committee of militia on guard. It is impossible, to reach him to ascertain his purposes, but it is understood that he will remain Governor if possible until all questions affecting his successor are settled.
