WASIIIXOTOX , Nov. 18. Acting Indian Com
mlssloner Belt has received no recent in
formation from South Dakota which Justifies
the evident alarm of the settlers' in the
nelRhborhood of the Pine Kldgo agency.
Belt Is of the opinion that the government
will not bo Justified In making any arrests or
attempting to suppress the ghost dances so
long as the Indians commit no acts of
violence. "This would surely mnko trouble.
The proper course to pursue Is to let the In
dians dunce themselves out. It will not belong
long before they begin to lose fulth In the
Messiah nnd the whole crnzo will collapse. "
Belt Is , however , strongly in favorof keeping
a strong military force Within call. This pre
caution is already taken and the government
Is not at all approhcnsivoof trouble.

ST. PAUI , , Nov. 18. General Ilugcr and
Lieutenant Woodruff of the department of
Dakota returned this morning from a ten
days' trip to two of the larger Indian reserva
tions. Lieutenant Woodruff says no Imme
diate trouble is anticipated and that the visit
of General Hugcr had much to do to quiet the
excitement of the Indians. Whoa asked
about the reported danger at Mnndan , the
lieutenant said the city was In no moro
danger from Indians than fs St. Paul.
Lieutenant Woodruff said in reference to
the Mandan scare that the Indian1 } located
nearest to Mandan nro thirty-five miles nwny
on the Cannon Ball tlvor , They are thrifty ,
Industilous , peaceable people who have taken
up claims , built huts and houses , own cattle ,
ponies and wagons and are In good circum
stances. They have no faith in Aboriginal
superstitions and dislike this now Messiah
craze. Kvcry year these Indians sell hun
dreds of thousands of pounds of hcof to the
Standing Hock agency. Now you cannot
convince mo that tlio people who have land ,
homes , stock , cattle , wagons , crops nnd rev
enue are anxious to go to war. Yet , these
nro the ones to whom the people ot Mamicn
have sent scouts. The band which mayglvo
trouble is that headed by Chief lluinp , and
situated southwest of Standing Hock. In any
emergency the troops will bo fully equal to
the occasion. "
It must bo taken Into account that some of
the accnts are now men. unused to the ways
of the Indians , who delight in frightening
these whom they can. "

General Nelson A , Miles , commanding the
department of the Missouri , has been the
recipient of many calls from people eager to

relative to the restlessness of the Indians in

that already published. The statements
made In recard to the bolligcrant actions of
the Indians have been corroborated by dis
patches received by the department of the
Missouri , but Adjutant General Williams
said this noon that no now facts had been

added , "thnt the Indians nt tlio Pine Uldgo

Indian affairs had been at all exaggerated by

Their PrcHcnoo Itnndercd Advisable
nt Pine Uldgo Indian Agency.
The announcement of Iho massing ot troops
against the northern Indians , which was
made exclusively In these Columns a fowiiays
ago , although pronounced unreliable nt tbo
time , scorns to have boon based upon most
correct information. Before tonight
all the available troops In the Department of
the Plat'to will have rendczvouzcd in the
neighborhood of Pine Kldgo agency , whcro
the Indians nro most demonstrative
anil where it is apprehended trouble
wll.l take placa if It should take place at all :
Sunday last , notwithstanding the construc
tion placed on THE BEE'S ' information , Gen
eral Brooke and his staff assembled at army
headquarters and kept the wire * warm an
swering telegrams fi'om Chicago , Washing
ton nnd various parts of this department.
Monday they wcro ngnln busy and thnt
night the general again assembled his aides
and remained in consultation until nearly mid
night. General Mill's , division commundor ,
was communicated with audllnnlly it was de
cided that a move should bo made against the
trouble some red men.
The decision , however , was kept secret , the
general fearing that if it should bccomo
known the Indians would soon como Into pos
session of the Information and the consequences
quences could not be anticipated.
Orders , however , wcro sent to some of the
poets hi the department to hold troops In
readiness to march at a moment's notice ,
while these of others wore ordered to march
at the first possible moment. General
\Vheaton , who Is In command of the Second
Infantry nt Fort Omaha , wiis present
nt the council and bore with him to the post
the order to march yesterday. Thoannounce-
mcnt was made to several of the onlecrs
yesterday at reveille , but It was not until S ) a.
m , that the order was communicated to the
men. Companies A , Captain Mills ; B , Captain
Bompscy ; C , Captain Cattloy ; D , Captain
Miller , wcro ordered to prepare immediately
for marching while the other four companies ,
E , F , G , II , wcro notillod to bo ready tomovo
on short notice. 'Iho marching column will bo
under the command of Major Butler. It will
bo accompanied with a full complement of
mules and wagons and bo provided wltn , ra
tions for fifteen days.
The announcement was received by the boys
with various demonstrations of satisfaction.
They saw In the order a chance to vary the
tiresome routine of garrison life , aud , even If
danger threatened , to enjoy tbo activity
which a campaign in the field afforded.
Knapsacks wcro Hllcd.galtors put on.heavy
underclothing provided nnd inside of half an
hour there was not u man In the companies
mentioned who was not ready to move
against the enemy.
Quartermaster Sarson Immediately set to
work making provisions for the departure and
had completed his arrangements about noon.
It was no' , announced to what point tbo
troops were destined , but the impression
scorned to bo that the rendezvous would bo as
above stated , at Pine Hidgo agency , which is
about twenty-six miles froniHubhvlllc , in this
Tno troops of Fort McKlnnoy hnvo also
been ordcrcdout nnd loft yesterday morning
on inarch to Douglas. There they will take the
Fremont , Elkuorn & Missouri Valley train
and bo rushed to their des
tination. Colonel Guy V. Henry will bo in
command. The march from McKlnnoy
to Douglas is about ono hundred and twonty-
llvo miles nnd several days must elapse before
It can be accomplished.
The troops at Chejcuno and Sidney are also
on the movo.
NiobnuM and Robinson are near tbo object
ive point and the troops from
them will leave for the scene
of the anticipated trouble today.
Besides the forces from this department ,
tbo troops from several posts in the depart
ment of Dakota will also bo massed within
view of the Indians. It is expected
that this showing will have a beneficial effect
by giving the aborigines to understand how
formidable a force may bo brought against
them should occasion require it.
Off to ilustivlllc.
The train was announced to leave Fort
Omaha nt 4 o'clock. Then tbo hour was
changed to 5:30 p. m. and then to C :00 p. m.
At 0:10 : precisely the call was sounded. Iu
the dusk , hurrying forms loft the company
quarters In twos nnd threes and when , five
minutes later , the second call was sounded ,
the dark figures had formed into companies
upon the parade ground. There was very llttlo
noise , very llttlo light beneath the fringe of
trees wnlck surround the square , notwith
standing that the moon was shining. Too
companies resolved themselves Into line and ,
under their respective leaders , marched In
columns of fours to the middle of the plaza.
At this movement the comrades In the com
panies which wcro to remain behind indulged
in encouraging cheers , which these In line
would have emulated had It been la accord
with the propriety of the occasion.
The battalion formed under the direction
ot Captain Mills , the senior captain of the
regiment A company being In the right , D
next , then C , nnd finally B. The line was
broken Into foul's and with Captain Mills at
the head , the boys marched from the grouod
to the Inspiring air of "Marching Through
Georgia. " Thcro was a lightness In their
step which would hnvo done credit to guests
approaching a feast , much loss young nnd
fearless soldiers advancing perhaps to death
at the call of duty. Cheer , after cheer ,
greeted them as they proceeded. But they
scorned unmindful of the greeting. They
looked neither to the right nor left and , In
deed , In the uncertain light , presented a
strange appearance. Each man car-
riea his knapsack , in tbo main
of the Murlam style , on the top o :
which was rolled his blanitet nnd overcoat
wrapped In the canvass of his shelter tent
Around his waist were fifty cartridges , one-
fourth of the allowance of deadly missiles
which had beenallotcd to him. On his left
side hung his field knife oncasodin Its leather
sheath , his canteen and bayonet , aud on the
right his capacious canvas haversack nnd the
omnipresent tin cup. The latter rattled ns It
struck the other accoutrements , beating ai
unmusical accompanlment'to the silent tread
of the marchers.
When tiio southeaster corner of the parade
ground was reached the band counter
marched , and without discontinuing Its
music ylnyod "How Can I Leave Theo , Queen
of My Loving Heart. " To this appropriate
selection ttio command marched from the

t the cabinet meeting today Secretary
Wlndoui wns called upon to enlighten the
president and his advisors as to the condition
of the country's finances. In various quar
ters it Is alleged that the surplus in the
treasury has disappeared.and a heavy deficit
is Inevitable. Secretary Wludom , when
questioned on the subject , snld ho could not
understand why Intelligent-people could mnk'e
such wild and sensational statements.
"Either thcro Is ample money In the Ueasury
to carry on the business of the country , " ho
remarked , "or tlio secretary of the treasury
Is an Idiot. I have paid out over $100,000,000
for bonds and other purpose ! during the past

had there been the slightest danger
of depleting the treasury. There Is
on hand today something over $10-

In the national banks , which can bo called nt

evidence of the cautious manner in which ho
Is proceeding , ho received nn offer from Now
York today proposing to sell the government
100,000 ounces of silver , to bo delivered in
Now York but paid for at Washington.
The secretary promptly declined the offer
on the ground that It wns not reg
ular purchasing day and under
the circumstances ho wns not
called upon to buy. It was suggested that the
proposition was made with a view to feeling
the pulse of the treasury department and as
certaining whether the feverish condition of
the money market throughout the world had

there seems to ho irrlconciliablo differences
between the east and west on the tariff ques

From a bulletin Just Issued at the agricul
tural department , showing the yield of crops
throughout the country , the following is
Iowa Corn gathering began two or three
weeks later this year than usual , owing to
the condition of the crop nnd to the rainy
weather. The weather now Is favorable and
corn Is being cribbed in hotter condition than
was anticipated. Moro tuan the usual
amount has been cut for fodder. The hay
crop , although not larcro , Is unusually good.
There Is a largo amount of flax straw in the
northern part of the state and much of It
will bo fed to stock. Potatoes will
not give more than half the average -
ago yield , urinclpally on account of
the drought and hot , dry atmosphere. About
the tlmo the tubers wcro forming a now kind
of potato bug Is reported to have done serious
Injury to the crop in ono locality. Apples
are less than half the average crop.
South Dakota The yield of both corn ana
ootntoes when harvested was disappointing
as to quantity , while the quality was about
all that could bo desired. The long contin
ued drought , commencing July 15 aad lasting
until October IU shortened both crops. Tlio
stand of stalks in the cornfields was excel
lent , but lack'of moisture when the cars
were forming checked the growth or pre
vented their formation altogether.
Late planted nnd noorly worked
fields suffered fur moro than that planted
earlier and well cultivated. Tbo same is true
of potatoes , the early planted yolldlng much
the best. * The yield of corn .fodder was pooa
nnd it has been secured la good order. Up tc

War on the Bucket Shops.
CHIOAQO , Nov. 18. [ Special Telegram to
TUB BUD. ] The war on the bucket shops
by the board of trade still goes on , Since
their quotations were cut oft by the board ,
the bucket shops hnvo managed to continue
business , though from yrhonco they obtain
their quotations has not been ascertained.
The market committee have resolved to close
another avcnuoof Information. It has been
suspected that quotations were signaled from
the windows of the main floor. It was neces
sary to obstruct the view from these windows
dews , so a force of tnen was put on , each
man with n bar of soap in his hand. Long
before the hour of business the windows
presented the oppenranco of an esthetic bar
mirror in fly time. The bucket shops claim
to have the quotations , hut they ca mo at
longer intervals than usual. At ono tlmo
when the trading was most active they failed
to show any quotations for fifteen minutes ,
nnd then they all came In together in a lump.
It Is by no moans certain , Mr. Steevor , the
chairman of the committee on markets , says ,
that the soap sonomo will prevent the bucket
