( A'hcrpuultc at a distance fiom hcio cannot
predate the feeling , thounoltciablo deter-
ilnatlon that has taken possession of those
representing the Goveimncnthoio rogniding
Jlils situation. A , uity of Indian scouts
today v Islted the scone of Moudaj 'n battle ,
and found nine Imlians whoweio wounded in
the light still n'.lvo. Two of them had been
taken ton log hut near by and weio being
cared for by a squaw that had remained be
hind the other seven , all of whom wore
found Ij ing in gullies remote from
the battleflelii , having sin vivcd the blizzard
without attention of any kind. Two were
bucks , nnd the other flvo weio squaws
U'hcio was scarcol ) enough llfo loft in any of
the seven to pay the scouts for bilnging them
in , but they did so , nnd they are now w 1th
ttio others in the Episcopal church.
In addition to tlio nine adults found , two
tiny Indian babies , neither of thornovei three
months old , were found alive , each beside the
dead body of its mother. Thoj wcro well
wiappcd up , but how they suivlvcd the fear
ful weather of the last foi ty-clght hours scorns
n mystery. The llttlo innocents wcro of

filcnds in the wives of some cf the Indian
the thiity-flvo wounded Indians brought
oilutter the battle , noaily till
whom vveio squaws and children , not n
jho has as yet died , though many of them are
.badly mangled with millets.
' The rear guard of the party of chultj
floiug scouts that went out on their search
for wounded Indians was foiccd to ex-
charge scvcial shots with some roving bos-
tiles , who seemed to think the former had no
business to do any nets of kindness.
For the benefit of the few people who nifty
feel Hko immediately seeking to attach some
blame to the military for not taring
foi these wounded Indians sooner , I will snj
that , lifter the battle , the Indian scouts did
> go over the Held and picked up all the dis
abled hostile * they could find , bofoio the
troops woio compelled to hurry in hero and
piotect the agency from the uprising that
occuried , as previously desciibed In my dis
patches. Since then they hnvo been too busy
every moment preventing n niassne-io heio to
spend thno doing deeds of kindness.

biating , as it did , the completion of the

all these details Mi's. Harrison has been
si closely interested that she enjojcd the nd-
inhution that ovcrjbody else so fully ox-
prosscd ' in the results. Of course there was
j1 dainty floral decoration in all the pnrlois ,
but in the blue room , whoso graceful proportions
tions and rich ornamentation needed nothing
to accent them , Mrs. Harrison bad
only n few flowers placed. The thrill
of excitement caused oy the re

A OCtlUOt'S CONTilAST.
A curlous'contrast hi tone with the tidings
of Indian lighting In South Dakota is fur-
ilshcd bv n moaiorlnl to congress It was
drawn up at n nicotine of the ropicsontatlvcs
of the religious Society of Friends for Pcnn-
&j Ivania , Now Jersey nnd IJelavvare. hold n
few days before Christmas. This memorial
speaks of the enormous nniounts of money
jxpcnded for many years In hostilities with
Indians , the primary cause of which has been
.ho Injustice and rapacity o' the whites , and
asks congress whether it li ot the part of
wisdom , mctcy and forbearance befitting a
powerful nation to inquire into the
cau o of the piesont trouble nnd to
n plv a remedy which might ic-storo tran-
qullfty cvciv wiieio wlthout'fuuher effusion
of blood. "Tho discontent nnd suffering
which have followed tbo reduction of rations
duo the Sioux under the stipulations of
former ticatles nt a tlrao when the failure
of crops had already caused n scarcity
of fooei. by which they were
threatened : with starvation , and the opening
of 11,000,000 acres of their land to occupation
of the whites before the terms of agreement
for its sale , as they understood it , had been
ratified by the government and the money
piov Ided for Its p lymcnt , appear to have been
the chief causes of the distrust and animosity
toward the whites , and the disposition on the
pait of some of them to nets of violence
which nowexist. . These feelings have no
doubt also been stimulated by the illusion In-
dus'ilously propagated aniODi ; them of tbo
speedy appearance of a supernatural
being ns the avenger of their
wrongs nnd their deliverer. Disappointing
to them as this expectation of tbo appearance
of a Messiah must be. should not the wide
