Otakte's Condition Unchanged.

Otakte, the young Indian chief, who is an inmate of Bellevue Hospital suffering from consumption, is still lying in a precarious condition. His recovery is extremely doubtful. It is believed that his disease was contracted in Europe, where he went as a member of the "Wild West" show. He belongs to the Dakota tribe of Sioux, and was a resident of the Pine Ridge Agency. His condition is being made as comfortable as possible. Rev. Father Crafts, of Dakota, is a frequent visitor to the young brave.
