The Story that Custer Killed Him-
Correspondence Chicago Tribune.
An Indian account of the death of
Custer will not, I think, prove unii g
teresting. The Indians say that al-
ter the general stampeed Custer tried
to rally h's men around him. He
waved his pistol in the air and shot
it off twice, to attract his men. Two
or three gothered around him, but as
the Indians continued to advance,
one of,the soldiers tried to run away.
Custer fired at him and killed him and
then, seeing the case quite hopeless,
the Indians gathering around irom
all points, turned his revolver on
himself, preferring to die by his own
hand. The Indians cay that they
think thU person was Custer, as hp
was a chief, but they are not certain
of the fact. Rain-in-the-Face took a
soldier prisoner, but he was not al-
lowed to live long, as he was killed
at a dance that followed the fight.
Hayes will Veto.
Washington, April 24.—The
National Republican announces this
morning that the president has gone
so far in the serious consideration of
his duty in relation to the army bill
as to prepare the outlines of a veto
of that measure, should the bill pass
iii its present form; that the presi-
dent has frequently remarked to Re-
publican members who have called
upon him at the executive mansion,
during the present week, that he is
thoroughly in accord with his party
in the matter.
Point for Radicals.

London, April 24.—A dispatch
from Ginglelova, South Africa, of
April 7, says: The relief column
on reaching this place on the first
instant, was informed of the ad-
vance of great masses of the en-
emy. The troops at once formed
and strengthened their entrench-
ments. At four in the morning the
Zulus appeared skirmishing on the
right in front of the rifles and the
naval brigade on the northest. We
first engaged a large force which
appeared 011 the surrounding heights.
the zulus fought bravely,
advancing within thirty yards of our
intrenchmenls. The attack lasted
nearly an hour, when the Zulus re-
treated precipitately, followed by the
mounted infantry and native contin-
gent. On April 3d the relief column
under Lord Chelmsford, started for
EkoOe. It was composed of the
fifty-seventh and sixtieth regiments,
and six companies of the ninety-first
marines, two rocket companies, one
Gatling gun, two nine-pounders,
mounted infantry and Dunn's scouts.
The rest of the column remained to
guard the baggage.
The mounted natives and volun-
teers led the way. No Zulus were
seen. After a successful march of
fifteen miles *

ninth, and seamen of the Active,
