SIOUX IIKSKUVATION HIM *
Almost Certain That It Will Bo Kali-
fled By tlio Indians.
CnAMnEHLAix , So. Dak. , April 10. [ Special
to THE BEE. I The Indians at Lower Brulo
agency have had couriers running to and fro
between the agencies to find out the fooling
of tbo different tribes towards the Sioux res
ervation bill. A courier , who arrived from
Rosebud agency , brings the good news that
the Indians nro almost unanimous In favor
of tlio bill , ns nro , also , the Indians at Pine
Ridge agency. This news is very gratifying
to the people who are anxious to have the
lands opened to Bcttlomrmt , The Rosebud
Indians nro the most uncivilized and tbo
wildest Indians on the reservation , nnd there
nro so many ot them that the agent In charge
docs not have ns good control over them ns
nt the other agencies. The commission that
treated with the Indians last year In regard
to relinquishing n part of their lands did not
visit either Pine Rldgo or KoscTnttl , as all re
ports from these agencies were very dis
couraging , nnd the commissioner gnvo up
the attempt nnd hnd delegations of chiefs
from the different agencies meet them In
Washington , where the chiefs , on the part of
the Sioux nation , and the commissioners nnd
ox-Secrotnry Vllns , on the part of the gov
ernment , agreed upon a bill that the rank
and Ilia ot Jtho Indians would ac
cept. The outcome of this agreement is the
present Sioux bill , nnd ns It was framed
nccordlng to the wishes of the Indians
will undoubtedly become n law. Rosebud
has about seven thousand , two hundred In
dians , and If this agency was against the
bill it would not become a law , oven it tbo
commission succeeded in getting the unani
mous support at the other places.
The Indians at Pine Ridge will support
the bill , ns section 27 of the Sioux bill appro
priates $33,200 in payment of the ponies that
were taken from them and sold by the gov
ernment troops in 1870. They ao not got this
money unless the bill Is ratified , nnd this
nlono will urge them to work nt the other
agencies In favor of the measure. This
section was Incorporated In the bill at the
urgent request of Red Cloud , head chief ot
the Pine Ridge ncency. Ho und his follow
ers are working hard In favor of the measure ,
nnd with the news received from Rosebud ,
thcro is not much doubt but that the Stoux
reservation bill will ratified and become a
law , thereby throwing open to actual sottlo-
munt 11,000,000 acres of the most fertile land
in Soutli Dakota. The many years' fight for
the opening of the reservation is drawing
near nn end , nnd will terminate. In the work
being successfully accomplished.

Prompt Action Tnkon on Judge \Vnl
Ineo's Doalpjon Dissolving the
Restraining Order Against
Down Como the Polot.
NEwYonit , April 10. Chips have been
flying In the streets of this city to-day. The
iclcs nro falling at last. After raoro than
wo years' dickering between the telegraph ,
tolopbono and electric light companies , the
removal of the overhead wires nnd poles In
ho subway district began to-day. The com-
lanlcs fought to the blttor ond. The Wcs-
crn Union telegraph company , noting llko n
Irownlng person catching at n straw , did not
surrender until it had appealed to the
Jutted States courts to prevent Mayor
Grant from Issuing nn order taking down
, ho wires and poles. Judge Wallace's order
dissolving the injunction against the mayor ,
oft the companies no leg to stand on , nud it
only awaited the receipt of the Judge's order
tor the removal of the poles und wires to
Early to-dav counsel for the board of elec
trical control went to the mayor's oflico
jringlng with him n certified copy of Judge
Wallace's order. Mayor Grant was not
present , but Commissioner Gibbons nnd Ex
port Wheeler of the board of electrical con
trol wcro there awaiting its arrival. Secre
tary Grain handed Commissioner Gibbons
nn order signed by Mayor Grant , directing
the commissioner of public works to re
move the poles and wires.
The pole on the southwest corner of Uni
versity Place and Fourteenth street was the
scone of the first attack. The foreman , with
nippers in hand , ( illicitly climbed the polo
while a gaping crowd gathered nnd wond-
dored what was going to happen. The
nippers wcro put In use und the
Western Union wire dropped Into
the strdct. This was followed
by others , until twelve wires had been ren
dered useless. The work of clearing the
polo was accomplished In six minutes and
the polo was allowed to remain standing to
support the now useless wires running south.
Then the forces were divided. Ono section
crossed into the park , wliero a pole of the
northerly lines of the Western Union stood.
It was SOOH cleared of wires , und at 11:25 : the
axemen had laid the polo lengthwise. An
other gang of workmen began clearing the
heavily laden poles of the Brush electric
light company , starting with the polo on the
corner of Fourteenth street nnd Broadway.
When the cutters bttgan work it was found
that , notwithstiiiidinsrorders had been given
the different companies to cut off the electric
currents , the Brush company had loft five
circuits in full working order. The liuemon ,
however , wcro fully prepared for this ilifll-
culty , and were rubber gloves. As the nip
pers went through the wires there was a
Hash that made the crowd below step aside
in a lively fashion , and which proved that
the powerful currents for arc lighting were
turned full on the wires.
Commissioner Gibbons , who stood on the
street below watching the work , became in
dignant. "Why , they w.iut to kill our men.
This Is outrageous , " ho exclaimed. In about
ten minutes eighteen electric wires running
north on Broadway ware rendered useless.
The crowd grow larger as the people realized
that the war on wires had bean begun.
While this work was In progress another
gang had cleared the second Western Union
pole , which stood in the park n few yards
nbovo Fifteenth street. It was u long pole ,
nud as thu linemen descended from their
perilous position it swayed. At that moment
the street was crowded witli people and ve
hicles of all kinds , but few spectators real
ized the danger that threatened. A crack
ling sound was the only note of warning
heard , but it was sufficient for the throng ,
which began to scatter. The polo , wilh its
half-dozen crossarms , toppled over ju t as a
Broadway car was standing at the street
crossing to allow a womau to get off. The
driver saw the danger , and , with a single
bound , jumped from the car just ns the pole
crashed to the ground. The part bearing
the crossarms fell between the dashboard
of tlio car and horses. It was a narrow es-
cupo for the passengers , horses and car. Two
women fainted and the reniainingpassengers
Hod terror stricken from the car. The polo ,
it was discovered , was rotten nt the base ,
but the workmen were careless in starting
Another scene followed , but it was of a
ludicrous character. The foreman of the
Brush company demanded the arrest of Com
missioner Gibbons for destroying the com
pany's ' property. Failing in accomplishing
ins wish , ho attempted to take possession of
the cut wires , but Superintendent Hichard-
son had his wngons-nnd men on hand , nnd as
each wife was cut it was rolled and placed
in a guarded wagon.
There was no interference from the West
ern Union or other companies affected. The
work was continued until nightfall , and will
bo resumed early to-morrow morning. The
only poles left standing by the workmen
were those which held fire department wires.
These will nil bo removed Dy that depart
ment this week. The electric light , tele
graph and telephone companies nro helpless ,
and say that they can only grin and bear it.
Madison und Union squares , usually uftor
nightfall the brightest and gayest localities
in the city , wnro to-night in gloom. Within
the squares thcro was no lliukor of light , nnd
the trumps upon the benches were less fre
quently disturbed In their slumbers. Youuir
people filled the settees , nnd there were ex -
cursions from distant parts of the city by
clti/ons curious to behold the results of the
first day's work of uxcs among thu wires.
The only illuminations to these great plazas
was from the lamps from the side streets ,
where the circuits had not been cut off. Giis
jets flickered in Broadway , but in
tlio cross streets , whore the poles
had been out , there wns absolute
darkness early In the night , BO that in Four
teenth , Twenty-third und Thirty-second
streets pedestrians picked their way lighted
only by the diffused glare in tlio sky. against
which the housetops broka dark and jagged
lines. Fifth avenue was as dark as u coun
try street , and few people were astir upon It.
When the moon rose the dark streets were
lighted , nnd many who , in the electric light ,
seldom know if the moon is shining , to-night
remarked that fact.

IMPOKTANff PENSION IIULINGB ,
Tlirco Cases Disposed of By Assistant
WASIIINOTOX , April 10. Assistant Sccro-
ary Bussey to-day rendered three pension
decisions which Involved the Important quos-
lens of when may and when may not n
oldler bo considered "in line of duty. " The
first case is that of W. II. Brockonshaw , late
of company II , Twnnty-nlnth Michigan vol
unteers , who nppliod for an Invalid pension ,
The basis of his claim was an Injury to the
eft side , Incurred In the sorvlc.0 at Jackson ,
Miss. , In March , 1807 , said Injury having been
caused by "throo soldiers lumping on the
claimant whllo ho was climblnK Into his
) tmk , crushing the ribs of the
oft sldo Just below the heart. " The
calm was rejected by Commissioner
Hack on the ground that the claimant
was not Injured in tlio line of duty. Assist
ant Secretary Bussey , In his decision to-day ,
overrules the former decision nnd directs
hat BrockcushftW's name bo placed on the
tension rolls , rating his disability In accord
ance with the law.
Another cnso is that of C. M. Sodgwick ,
ate midshipman of the United States shins
Snntco nnd Constitution. The claimant In
his case , wns injured by a kick by n com
rade on board the ship. Ho was at the time ,
o use his own language , "twitting
uid teasing" his comrade , who ,
iccouilng Incensed thereat , ndmlnlst-
ere to him n kick from which
ils disability rcsultad. The assistant secre
tary , in this case , sustains the former de
cision rejecting the application , mid adds :
'Horo it Is apparent that the claimant not
only contributed directly to produce the
cause ot his injury , but that ho wns en
raged nt the tlmo in A manner that was mnn-
fcstly in violation of the rules nnd rcguln-
-lons of the service and subvoislvo of dis
cipline and good order , and the injury re
sulting from such conduct .on his part was
unquestionably not incurred iu the line of
The third case is that of Elizabeth Hull ,
widow of William Hull , a soldier who died
n a military prison tit Nashville , of diseases
contracted in prison. The soldier , it appears
'rom the evidence , was arrested and con
fined lu prison for being absent from his
company nnd regiment without permission ,
'n this case Bussoy siiys : "To entitle n
widow to a pension , the xvouud , injury , or
disease which caused her husband's'death
must have been contracted ns a result of the
compliance by him with the requirements of
nilitary duty. Such connection between
'atal disease and service did not exist in this
caso. The former decision is sustained. "
THE MISSING DENBIAUK.
She \Vas Considered to Bo n Remark-
nl > ly Strong Vessel.
PHILADELPHIA , April 10. Captain Smith ,
of the British steamer La Flandro , which ar
rived this afternoon from Antwerp , was com-
nanderof the Ill-fated D.xnmark before her
change of ownership , and was much con
cerned when ho learned of the disaster
which is said to have overtaken the
vessel. Captain Smith , when questioned ,
said that the Dannmrk was u remarkably
strong vessel. She was built in watertight
compartments , had water tanks from the
bridge aft , and was extra braced with iron
about the upper works. "In fact , " ho added ,
"sho was ono of the strongest built iron ves
sels I was over in. I commanded her when she
was sold , Just previous to her lust trip , nnd
was chief officer prior to that und would not
wish to sail iu a bettor ship. "
Captain Smith said further that ho bad
crossed very close to wiicro the
ship was sighted. 'Tho boats picltcd
up , " ho coutiuecl , "by the sailing
vessel , indicated that her proper course
would bo to stand for the Irish channel. Of
course , no sailing vessel would continue her
voyapo with such a crowd on board unless
the port she was bound to was most easily
reached. It would talcc longer for
the vessel to make the Azores
than the Irish * coast , from whore the
Danmark wns seen , because the wind would
bo mostly nhe.id. The distance to the Fast-
net liuht would bo about 1,100 miles , and
with the winds wo have had a sailing vessel
ought to make it in about eight days. "
