IN the United States Senate on the ttvtton Agents and Operator* tin tho Rfc. .Pawl System Quit Work-Different Ro- ports us to the Kxtent of the Strike— Tho Came. CHICAGO, Jan. 17.—A great telegraphers' strike has been inaugurated on tho Chicago, Milwaukee «fc St. Paul system. The best information obtainable is to the effect that 500 operators and station agents are out. While it is not now expected that a tie-up will result, such a ".nn-jcrjuence is more than possible. The road is already seriously crippled 3ii Iowa, Minnesota, Dakota, Missouri and in parts of Illinois and Wisconsin. Trains will run under great disadvantages. The railroad company is doing every thing possible to avert a tie-up or the possible stoppage of through trains. As is well known, there are in every small town several small boys learning to be telegraph operators. ^The railroad company has always permitted these boys—tho so-called student.?—to practice on its instruments in return for such small services as they might render. An order has been issued from the general manager's office calling all the students into the offices of train- dispatchers to' report for duty. There aro plenty of these students— such as they arc—to fill every place made vacant by tho men who have left work, and the company has made arrangements to do that very thing. The engineers have come square!}' for the operators and notified the strikers that they would refuse to accept clearances from students who might be put in the places of the regular men. The engine- men declare that their action was necessary for public safety, as the majority of the students are incompetent to receive and transmit train orders. At the St. Paul headquarters it is claimed that but seventy-two men have quit work. At the general telegraph offices in tliis city the employes reported all the lines as working, indicating that the places of strikers had been filled. The employes of the road assure everybody who inquires that there is no trouble at all along the lines. During the clay the strikers' committee received telegrams from Milwaukee that on the Prairie du Chien division there would be twenty resignations. From other points in Wisconsin came telegrams that indicate that a large number of men are willing to go out with the rest. On the Prairie du Chien and Mineral Point division the telegrams report the as strong. At Cedar Rapids "scabs" were said to be a1 At Coon Rapids, la., J.

WASHINGTON, Jan. 17.—The Commissioner of Indian Aft'airs has received from Miss Elaine Goodale, supervisor of education, the following letter dated Tine Ridge, January 1»: "Yours of tho 7th inst. askingfor a report of tho liaUlo nt Wounded Knee is received. I was not nn eyc-wHness of tho light tmd my Information has liecn obtained chtelly from Indian prisoners who wero encaged in it, half-brecdH who were present nnd from parties who visited tho battle-field several days after the encounter. "The testimony of tlio survivors of Hig Foot's band is unanimous on one important point- namely, that tho Indians did not deliberately plan a resistance. The party was not a war party, according to their statements (which I believe to be true), but a party intending to visit the URenuy at the Invitation of Red Cloud. Tho Indians say that many of the men wore unarmed. When they met the troops they anticipated no trouble. There was consequently friendly intercourse between tho soldiery and the Indians, women even shaking hands with tho officers and men. "Tho demand for their arms was a surprise to the redfUdns, but tho great majority of them chose to submit quietly. Tho topees had already been searched and a large number of guns, knives and hatchets confiscated, when the searching of the persons of the men was begun. Tho women say' that they, too, were searched nnd their knives (which they always cory for domestic purposes) taken from them. A number of the men had surrendered their rifles nnd cartridge-belts, when one young man, who is described by tho Indians as tv good-for-nothing young fellow, fired a single shot. This called forth a volley from the troops and the firing and confusion became general. I do not credit tho statement which has been made by some that the women carried arms and participated actively in the fight. The weight of testimony is overwhelmingly against this sup position. There may have been one or two Isolated cases of this kind, but there is no douhtthat tho great majority of tho women and children, as well as many unarmed men and youths, had no thought of any thing but flight. They wore pursued ut> tho ravines and shot down indiscriminately by the soldiers. "It is reported that one of tho officers called out: 'Don't shoot the squaws, 1 hut the men were doubtless too much excited to obey. Tho killing of tho women and children was in part unavoidable, owing to the confusion, but I hink there is no doubt that it was in many ases deliberate and intentional. Tho Seventh 3avalry (Cluster's old command) had an old ;rudgc to repay. The party of scouts who buried the dead report eighty-four bodies of men and boys, forty- our of women and eighteen of children. Some verc carried off by the hostiles. A number of prisoners, mostly women, have since died'of heir wounds and more will soon follow. The parly which visited the battle-field January 1 ,o rescue any wounded who might have been abandoned and brought in seven, reports that nearly all tho bodies of the men were ying close about Big Foot's tent, while the women and children were scattered along a distance of two miles from tho scone of tho encounter. The main reflection which occurs to me in connection with this most unfortunate affair is that the same thing should not bo allowed to happen again. The irresponsible action of one hot-headed youth should not bo the signal for a general and indiscriminate slaughter of the unarmed and helpless." PINK RIDGE AOENCV, S. D. ( Jan. 17.— The question which seems uppermost in the mind of everybody around the agency is whether or not General Miles will insist upon the complete disarmament of the Indians. It is reported on good authority that General Miles has ordered civilians to keep out of the hostile camp because he intends to disarm the Indians if he has to shell their camp to accomplish his purpose. The General could not be seen to substantiate this. Adjutant-General Corbin was asked if General Mile's had issued such an order, but he would neither admit nor deny the report. He claimed that so long as the arms were being surrendered by the Indians there was no necessity of using force to compel more speed.

The Ogallalas had prepared a feast of hot coffee and boiled dog and the braves squatted in a circle, in the center of •which steamed the viands. The only white man present was Lieutenant Taylor, Ninth Cavalry, commander of the famous Ogallala scouts. Among the Ogallalas present were Chiefs Standing Soldier, American Horse, Standing l$ear, Fast Thunder, Spotted Horse, "White Bird and Had Wound. Among the Brules were Chiefs Short Bull, Kicking Bear, High Pipe, Ires Bull, Turning Bear and Two Strike. American Horse reviewed the circumstances which had led to the present difficulty and had impelled General Miles to issue his order disarming the Indians. He said the order oughl to be complied with and that they should return to their homes and bring their young men to respect their good white friends, dissuade them from violence and compel the children to return to school. Short Bull said that a great many of the Rosebud Indians wanted to come to the Pine llidge agency because they knew they would be treated better there. High Pipe and Two Strike also spoke. Lieutenant Taylor was asked to speak, and said that lie knew very many Ogallalas and was satisfied that they were friendly. He did not know the Brules so well, but felt that there were many good and brave men among them who would listen to reason. The trouble was now over, and if they wished to remain in peace all they had to do was to comply with the order of General Miles. He closed by saying that their rights would be recognized by the present oflicers who had been placed over them. The council closed in the best possible humor. END OF THE BASE^BALL WAR.
