( Special Telegram to Tim Unn. ] Some of tlio hostile chiefs have kept their sworn pledge made to Father Jute in the bad lands to como in nnd see General Brooko. They came bearing u flag of truce nnd armed with Winchesters nnd Springfield rillcs. The entrance of the novel procession caused a flutter of excitement , the greatest that has boon known hero at the agency since the trouble began. First came the chiefs , Who were Turning Boar , Big Turkey , Hugh Pine , Big Bad Horse nnd Bull Dog , who wns ono of the leaders in the Custor mnssacro. Next came Two Strike , the heftid chlof , seated In n buggy with Father Juto. Surrounding those was a bodyguard of four oung warriors. All of the Indians were decorated with war paint and feathers , whllo mnny t ere ghost dance leggings and had the ghost dnnco shirt dangling at their saddles Bunches of oajtlo feathers were tied in the mimes and tales of most of the ponies , while tbo backs of the doctlo little animals were Btrcakcd with paint. The luridly warlike cavnlcado procccdeil nt once to General Brooke's headquarters In the ngcncy rcildonco. At a given signal nil leaped to the ground , hitched their ponies to the trees nnd guided by Father .Tuto , they entered the general's ' apartment , whore the council was held , lasting two hours. At the beginning of the pow wow General Brooke explained that the great father , through him , tiad asked them to como In and hnvo n talk regarding the situation. A great deal of misunderstanding and 'trouble hnd risen by the reports taken to and fro between tbo camps by Irresponsible parties , and It was therefore considered very necessary that they hnvo ( italk face to face. Through him , lie said , the great father wanted to toll thorn that If they would como in and live near the agency , xvhero ho ( General Brooke ) could see them of ton and not bo compelled to depend upon hearsay , ho would give them plenty to cat and would employ many of tbcit young men ns scouts , etc. Ho said ho hnd heard they were bostllo Indians , but ho did J not believe it. The soldiers did not come thcro to fight , but to protect Iho settlers and keep peace. Ho hoped that they ( the fir tlhins ) wcro nil in favor of peace , as the grcal lather did not want war. As to the change In the boundary line between Pine Hidgc nnd Kosobud agency , ho said thai nnd many other things woult Co settled sntlstnctjorlly after they hnd showt n disposition to corao in as Asked by the greai father. Wounded iCnco was suggested ns t place that would prove satisfactory to th < great father to hnvo them llvo. The representatives of the hostllcs listened with contracted brows , sidelong giancosjri 't > Mj wiotherf nrid lovr'grnnts WWtibiTtho gSn' oral had concluded his remarks Turning Bcai came forward nndspoko in reply. Hols th < Jlnest specimen of tha blanket wrapped In dlan that wo have soon since coming hereWith With n face that Is positively handsome , i iorm erect ns a flagstaff , nnd n void that would attract favorable common 5n legislative halls , ho proved a most inter cstmg person. Simmered down to a fo , ' worels , Turning Bear gave expression to tb following ideas : It would bo a bad thing for thorn to com * nearer the agency , because there was tn water or grass for their horses hero. Hi couldn't understand how their young mei could bo employed as scouts if there was m enemy to bo watched. They woulel bo glai to bo employed nnd get paid for it. The ; might come in , but as the old men and ol < women have no horses , nnd as tholr pcopl hnd nothing generally to null thel wagons , It would take them a Ion tlmo to como. If they did como they shoul wnnt the great father to send horses nn wagons out to the bad lands camp and brln In the prcnt quantities of beef , etc. , they ha there and take It anywhere to a now cam that might bo agreed on. In conclusion , tb speakers hoped that they would bo give something to eat before they started bad To this the f cncral replied thut ho Intondc before the council closed to tell them tlu they should bo given food. As for horses nn wagons being sent after the beef , the gcnen said that and many other things would I considered after they Und acceded to the grc : father's request to move into the ngonc ; Any reference whatever to the wholesale di vasuulon , depredations , thiovinc , burning o building , etc. , was studiously avoided on hot tides. After the pow wow was over the thlovlc gang was conducted to the quartermaster department and there given a big fat fcei Tlien the squaws living hero nt the agenc came out in gala day feathers and travc grand squaw dance. Before leaving the subject of tbo council nnvo only to ndd that General Broono seen to believe that the hostilcs will glvo up the designs of war within ono or two .days , whl the ogcucy officials and others think dlffc cntly. Before the bearers of the white rag lethe the agency n whlto man named Jot Sweeny , whoso place was among those plu derod , recognized Ills overcoat on tl back of ono of the hostllcs. Sweet Immediately reported the discovery to Gei cral Brooke , who sent Frank Garunrd , tl chlof scout , out to collar the war palnU "bravo. " At last accounts they "ha Ju'tbei ublo to find him , Special Agent Cooper recognized a Carlls Btudcnt among the visiting uostiles. and \vh ho wimt up and spoke to him the young rol actually looked ashamed , Asldo from Turning Bear , tlw entire for ! five wore the most brutal looking Indians i have over seen , a fact commented upon cvorycno who saw them. A fact that llvo the most Influoutlol of the young hostile chit who took an oath to como In nnd violated namely , Crow Log , High Hawk , Eaglel'l ] Bhort Bull and Kicking Bear , proves U voiy great extent how much dependence to bo placed upon tbo idea that inoro th possibly a hundred or so of the 2,000 , blo < thirsty fellows will lay down tholr arms bo BCO < II M the government has request them to do today. Agent Hoycr lias finally been successful securing the names of some of the prlncl Bufforors from tbo recent desperate ro jrmda by ( ho band of about two thousand ulaus who have defiantly located in the t lauds. The information obtained was fr William AlcGaa nnd John O'Hourko , v have owned and operated extensive t < ranches just beyond the north nndnorthw border of this reservation for yean , kiw present whoa thc gentlemen i pc-nrcd bcforo Agent Hoycr nnd made their report , nnd the occasion wns that of n pre sentation of wrongs that proved dramntlo In the extreme. Doth of them are intelligent frontiersmen , who n few days ngo were pos sessed of comfortable homes nnd largo Ucrds of catllo nnd horses , but today nro ill- most puupored ns a result of the devastation sweep which the marauding reds have made across this northern country. McGon acted as spokesman. Ho said that his ranch , which Is situated about forty miles northwest of hero on the Whlto river nnd nt the ! month of Porcuplno crook , wns found the picture of tire direst , most devil ishly wrought devastation iinngtnnblp. Two bund red and twenty-live lie-nd of cattle nnd sevcnty-llvo head of horses , including n stal lion for which ho paid $ TKW , had been taken. Allot bis winter's supply of corn , oats nnd hay hnd been carried away. Several sets of now harness nnd many old ones had cither been stolen or cut up Into llttlo bits. All tlio small ranch implements wcro gono. Of n two years' supply of annuity goods , consisting of blankets , etc. , not n thread was oft behind , livery stitch of clothing belonging to himself and family bad been carried awny. leaving them with none hut that upon their backs , when they lied for tholr lives , livery drawer in the house had been gutted of whatever might prove useful to the red devils. Every bit of furniture had been broken upnndmostof it cnrrlcd away to swell the supply at the hos tile camp in the bad lands. Beeves had been killed in the very doorway of the house and part of the carcasses loft bohlnei. Doors nnd windows had been broken In and lace cur tains , pictures , etc , , Jerked down and ground into the dirt. In n word , nothing but ruin remained. Even mnny of the small sheds had been torn down nnd carried away for fuel. fuel.Any effort whatever at word painting is unnecessary I Tlio plain , cold facts them selves Immediately form a picture , fearfully vivid , and which to tbo wronged would seem to bear but ono thought despair 1 No , there is another thought , a terrible extermination , a determination for rovcngp , revenge In such a form ns shall repay vandalism and homo- wrecking by nothing less than the spilling of blood. H was this last thought which evinced its presence by the moistened eye , the drawn lips , nnd the clenched lists of the mon to whom wo listened. . And then wo heard how Mr. O'Kourko had found his ranch homo In nn almost exactly similar state as Mr. McGaa's. O'Uourke's plaeo Is also ou White river at the mouth of the stream known as Wounded ICuco. Ho found nineteen of his horses gene and tno rest scattered to the four winds. Seventy-five head of cattle wcro gene and the remainder of the herd had boon tormented into a state of absolute madness and wcro dashing about in a bleeding condi tion. Ills nousc and barnes had boon treated Just as hael McGaa's. He was utterly home less and penniless , Other ranches In the same vicinity found in exactly the same condition were those of Dick Stlrks , William Valanzry , John Stcelo , Charles Cooncy , Widow Coonev , John D.iyiel- son , Henry ICoarns , Mrs. Fish , Baptisto Courier nnd John Dwyer. They also found that tno government ranch he.idquarters , store bouses , barns , etc , bad all been burnoel to the ground , ttio entires eov- eminent herd of nearly three thousand head of cattle having been driven off as mentioned in my dispatches two or thrco days ago. Messrs. McUaaand O'Burko came upon n portion of the hostlles Just ns the latter were returning from another wrecking and thiev ing raid. As they looked at the animals tlio Indians hid , McGaa discovered one of Uls horses hitched up with another nnd being driven along by the red devils. This was too much for him. Putting spurs to the only horse ho had left In the world McGac dashed after hls.proprrty with the resolve that he would Just as lluf die right then as any 'other time. As ho came up with the thieves bo drew his six shooter , demandot his horse , and springing elown proceeded to take it out of the harness. The hostile ! seemed thunderstruck at his display ol bravery and didn't offer the slightest resist "I now wish to Oed that I had emptied inj six shots Into the cursed devils , " salcl th < wronged man , ns tears glistened In his eyes ' But I shall get some of them yet , " ho added "for I Know the Indian that headed the raid Ills name Is Cedar. Wo now have a score t ( settlowlth those devilish reds that will novel bo ovcnoel up except by death , on ono sldo 01 the other. " Thcso men also snld they were told tha Two Strike , who has been leading the hos tiles nnd acting as tholr chief since Llttli Wound was scared into the agency , had nisi turned the white feather to a certain oxtcn and that the leaders now were Short Bull Hickory Bear and Conquering Bear , threi Inelians who have a reputation throughout th northwest as being the worst of rods. In conversation with some of tno hostile the latter said that nothing could tun thorn from their purpose to figh out tbo stand tboy had taken and that if they ever came to Pine Kldg agency again It would bo on horseback t clean out the whole business. McGaa am O'Hourko were also tola that they might gi back and tell Agent lloyer that they ( the hos tiles ) wcro having n bcof Issue every day al of their own , and that it was away ahead o anything the great Father had over done fo them. McGaa says ho heard a Joke from the hos tiles that did him lots of good. Ono of then rushed up to a bunch of ranch cattl In the night , and throwing out hi lasso , put spurs to bis horse , expect Ing to yank out a beef. Instead c having caught a bcof his lasso had droope about tbo neck of a brother Indian thief wh had rode up to the bunch of steers on a slm Inr errand. The other red was picked froi his pony and dragged a hundred yards Defer No. 1 discovered his mistake. As n rcsul the rod that was lassoed had both jaws , hi collar bono and right arm broken. It must not bo understood that the partle named above are the only ones who have su fored from the raids of these unruly rcdi They are but a few of those who have su fered the heaviest lo ses. Agejt Hoyor has long list of poorer persons who have lost the nil within the past few weeks. So far i reported even up to the present tlmo. ho saj that It will cost the government fully $25.01 to settle with those who have been raldci y while in addition to these losses the goven a ment Is out but 8,000 , head of cattle , togethi with the loss of all tbo government rane buildings which the Indians have burne To this add tha enormous cost of movins i much military around over the country , at : then you will get some Idea of how utter lo absurd it has beer for tbo newspapers to pa so much attention to this utterly groundta agitation about an Indian scare.

PARNELL HOLDS THE FORT , Ho Repulses All Attack ? and Outmastcra His Opponents , VITUPERATION VERGING -VIOLENCE , An Encounter with McCarthy tlmt Almost Ciuno to Illows Xlio AntlB Prepare a manifesto. | Coj/Ho7it ] / ISM ) tin Jama Oonlon 7) ) < iniffl.1 > Loxnox , Dec. 0. [ New York Herald Cahlo Special to Tun BKE. ] There was terrillo fighting among the nationalists today. Atone time It nearly culminated in a per sonal encounter , The antl-Purnellltcs woke up this morning to the conviction that they had been grossly fooled during the week , es pecially In the bogus negotiations with Glael- stone , so naroltly sot on foot by Pnrnoll , consequently they wont to Uooin 15 In n highly boillgcrant spirit. They were re solved to make an end of Parnell's leadership nt ail costs. Parnell was prepared for ex tremities and , as events showed , ho outtnas- tcrcd bis opponents in daring and remains in possession of the ilcld , though with reduced forces. Sexton and Healy lost no time in opening hostilities. It wns known that Gladstone had declined even to nibble at the baits set for him , refusing to enter into any further nego tiations with the Irish party until Parnell had been formnllj deposed. In this course Gladstone is supported by Harcourt , Morley , Karl Spencer nnd tbo wholoof his party , many of whom thought he had gene too far already. Soxtou declared that before the day had closed Parnell should bo driven out. Thl ? provoked u violent storm which raged some minutes. Parncll's position as chair man gnvo him power to put any resolution to the meeting or to refuse. This kept all hU opponents ntbsiy. At last Abrahams brought up a resolution declaring Parncll's leadership nt an end. Then ensued a , tremendous scene. Justin McCarthy hold out his band to receive the resolution , Intending to put it to the meeting , Ignoring the chair man. Parnoll , suddenly reaching over , struck McCarthy's hand , seized tbo resolution and toro it up in the face of the meeting , whoso howls , cheers and groans resounded through the building. Justin Huntley McCarthy , who thus far has nctcd with Parnell , declared passionately against tbo chairman nnd accused him of .insulting his father and betraying his country , nnd wnnt over to tbo opposition camp amid the wildest excitement. Sexton , Ilcaly , McCarthy and the rest of the opposi tion to the number of sixty-flvo walked out of the room and held a meeting of their own , They passed a resolution of an abstract kind alllrming tliolr adhesion to the doc trines of , homo rule ns ratified by the Irish people , and proccodcd to write a manifesto which Is to bo issueel tomorrow. This sounds well , but it leaves Parnell's position materially unchanged. Ho claims to ' be the leader and ho will discharge the func tions of loader in tbo house as olsowhoro. Chi co or twlco today it seemed as if personal violence would bo used towards him , but DO .violent act was commUtoel.axcppt by hlmseU , Ho seemed carried away"bbyShd'"all powers ot restraint. Tonight ho laughed at the whole affair. Ho informed a friend that his opponents have now done their worst and have acted like a pack of Imbeciles. They might have formally deposed him wlthouj holding a meeting at all , simply by signing a declaration to taat effect , Ho says ho would not have recognized It , bu it would have been more rational than ttsh pantomlnoof the past week. Parnollltes are not Jubilant , They admit that they have encountered countered substantial defeat , Some of their tear that when both sides go to Ireland nnc renew their cnmpnign there it will lead t ( something close upon civil war. ! t Gladstone returns to Hawardcn next wool and professes to bollcvo home rule is saved , Some of Parnell's friends assure mo thoj consider their position stronger than over : that the renegades nro weak nnd divided that some are destined to bo drummed out ol the Irish party altogether , whllo others will como over to Parnell. It Is quite nbviou : that Ireland is doomcd-to pass through a win tcr unexampled since the closing years of th ( last century. THE PAKIS PVLSE. What Has Caused It to Palpitate the Past Week.

The press of this citydovolos much attention to the crisis in the affairs of the Irish party. The balance of opinion is de cidedly averse to the retention ofMr. .

" The Temps comments iu the same vein. The Hepuhllquo Francjlso holds that Gladstone ought to have accepted the propositions made by Parnell's sup porters , by this means saving the dignity of Parncll nnd preventing the disruption of the Irish party. The scandal , the Ilcpubliqtio says. recalls Instances of French politicians who have lost high positions because of their private immorality. Thus M.

Gladstone , in his letter to the nationalist meeting , acknowledges the receipt of the two resolutions adopted by the Irish caucus nnd says the main part , the question raised Dy the publication of his letj tcr to Morley , was the question of leadership , which Is separate nnd has no proper connec , tlon with homo rulo. "When the Irish party settles this question in such n manner as will enable mo to renew my former relations with the Irish party it will IKJ my desire to enter without preju dice into confidential communication , as occasion may servo , upon all amendments and suggestions of improvement in my plan for homo rule measures. 1 nssuro you that it is my desire to press forward at the first favorable opportunity a Just ana effective measure for homo rulo.
