A Change of Plans by iho Authorities
nt I'lne 111(1 uc.
PiNr. UiDfin Aocxcr , S. D. , Nov. 20.
[ Opcclnl Tele-tram to Tin ; Bin. | An order
wns Issued this morning , postponing the beef
issue until tomorrow and ordering all
Btrangcrs except newspaper correspondents
off the reservation.
There are about six thousand Indians
swarming in nnd about the ngeucy , but all
ficcin uncxcltcd.
Ono hundred moro Indian scouts nro being
sworn in nnd armed for service under the
direction of General Brooke.
The order postponing the beef Issue until
tomorrow set everybody to guessing what nd-
dltlonnl significance was nttatchcd to It.
Special Agent Cooper said that it wns
a move on the part of the war
department to keep six thousand
or moro Indians in sight hero
until tomorrow. Further thnn this , he , however -
over , declined to say. It looks ns though the
postponement was simply for the purpose of
giving the eight companies of cavalry and
two of infantry now en route from
Fort Ulloy , Kan. , tlmo to gat hero ,
they being expected to reach us before
daybreak tomorrow. When these arrive
there will bo about eleven Hundred soldiers
horo. General Brooke nnd Messrs. Hoyer
nnd Cooper are much moro non-committal
than over before. ' 'Keep your eyes and cars
open nnd your mouth shut , " Is
about the only idea they will
express to the correspondent , another
Hock of whom put In nn appearance today.
Tbo order expelling all but correspondents
from the rcservntlon Is playing havoc among
the many who are here purely out of curios
ity. Special Agent Cooper is busy making
out passports to newspaper men nnd
denying them to the loads of people who
are flocking hero from all points of the com
pass. Every time a strange face Is seen
among us now the owner of It Is Immediately
spotted by the keen eyed and very vigilant
Indian police and hustled before Agent Royct
or Cooper , where ho quickly hears the little
fact that makes the Ideal picture of disap
pointment orsatisfactton.
There now scorns to bo n good chance ol
effecting ft quiet arrest of those who are still
holding out against the order to come inu
the reservation , although no ono can really
foretell what Is coming. It scorns evident ,
however , that some sort of a settlement will
bo effected this week. It has
Just been learned that the ono hun
dred Indians enlisted this morning as
"nlllltary scouts will leave tomorrow on ar
overland march to Fort Hobinson under com
mand of Lieutenant Taylor , thcro to be
equipped nnd trained.
Dig lload , the chief who , with his band ,
has been rushing tbo ghost waltz for nil 11
was worth , appeared nt the atrency ofllco last
night nnd solicited n talk with Agent Hoyer.
Ills solicitations were acceded to In the pres
ence of UoyerCooperGcnornl Brooke and TIIF
Bun representative. The first portion ol
the "Big Injun's" sny was about the same as
when ho talked to Tur. BIG : man atone yes
terday , namely : That ho meant to do right ;
wanted to do right ; would do right ; wanted
the whites to know that ho was
their frtond ; that ho stopped dancing ;
would never do It ; wanted peace , oto.
Finally Agent Roycr asked tnls question
"Big Uoad , do you know of anything that the ,
Indians on this reservation are dlssatisflee
wltbl Speak right out plainly. "
After meditating for some moments the ole
thief replied , "Wo don't ' got enough to cat
not get enough to eat. Wo go hungry. "
When nsked wlictlfcr ho thought the com
fng of the troops had anything t <
do with the suspension of the danci
by his pcoplo flvo days ago , Big Roae
uns frank enough to admit that i
had , and that ho thought the dance wouli
bnvo continued , had the troops not nppearei
it the agency.
A couple of well known business men whi
tame in from Gordnn last night told mo i
good ono on Dave Moffatt , the well knowi
Wyoming oil land man who lives in Gordon
_ pave became badly frightened about thi
Indians the other day. Ho Is n great lover o
children and the thought seized upon hi :
fevered brain : "What If the Indians shquh
attack our publlo schools while the littli
ones wore nil there ! " And immediately hi
cct about to do what do you think ? Erect i
ted fortification nil around It. The Job wns i
big ono , ns the building Is two stories high
but David Is a great sod mechanic. With th
assistance of J.J. Joycoa merchant of the tow :
nna sevcrnl of the pupils ho kept at the Jot
day and nlgtit , until ho had reared a high so
wall all around the school house. Slnco It
completion it Is said that ho has been a con
BturU and trembling visitor to thatsam
school , ns ho says , for the purpos
of ascertaining the exact degree of prol
cloney being attained by the pupils. Bu
many people ore ready to swear that Davo1
solicitude for ascertaining the the proflclcnc
of the pupils is duo simply and solely to hi
desire to reap a big share of the fruits of hi
sod barricade.

forty-five or fifty miles , which is about thirty

All the troops stationed hero were called
out on the prairies today , nnd with some flvo
thousand ochre-fnccd and feather-bedecked
Indians ns spectators went through thocntiro

interesting and nssurinp to witness. Double

CIIICAOO , Nov. 20. General Miles tonight
received n telegram from Governor Mcllotto
of South Dakota , conveying Intelligence
brought in by Scotty Phillips , n ranchman
who was nscoutln IS'ii and ISrO. The gov
ernor vouches for his good character nnd
judgment. Phillips reports his opinion thcro
will bo nn uprising pretty soon. A few days
ngo twelve bucks , well armed , stopped at his
house on their way from Hoscbud to the
camp on South Pass Creek. They were very
surly nnd made vague threats. Phillips
knows all of tbam , Yellow Thigh being the
leader. A ranchman named Wald-
ron also reports to Governor lellotto
that Indians killed quite a number of
his cattle recently. Phillips says everybody
who has been among Indians any length of
time expects an uprising soon. Snort Bull's '
headquarters are at Pass Creek where a
dnnco has been going on for months. Phillips
ind Waldron think It Is the point fixed for
! onccntratlon. Fifteen hundred armed war-
lors are there , and they say they won't ' give
, ip Short Bull under any circumstances.
Short Bull Is teaching them that they may bo
made Invulnerable against the white men's
'lullets. Indian runners carry the news of
11 movements of the whites to them with In-
Tcdiblo swiftness. The governor promises
'urthcr information nnd renews his npnlica-
ion for a thousand guns with ammunition.
Alarmed at I'll 1'llps' Rep < rt. , Minn. , Nov. 20. A special
rom Pierre , S. 1) . , says the statements mndo
> y Cattlemen Phillips and Waldron , the sub-
tnnco of which was telegraphed General
Allies by Governor Mcllotto tonight , created
much excitement thero. HiilHps nnd Wal
dron nro known to bo Intimately acquainted
, vith all the prominent Indians nnd their
ivnys , having married Into the tribe and
prcat reliance Is placed In their assertion
that trouble is coming. What makes the
matter more serious is the report that army
> niccrs have been ordered to capture Short
-lull and some other leaders. Phillips nnd
Waldron nro sure such an attempt will pre
cipitate bloodshed. In case of nn outbreak
grave apprehensions are felt for the settlers
in the countries to the north , as roving bands
of Indians can scatter up there nnd destroy
everything long before troops can eaten
A Hopeful View.

represent clearly and unequivocally Its wholi
