Eight Million Acres Tin-own Open to
the Public by the Now Treaties.
Washington, March ">.—The legisla
tion enacted by the past Congress in the
ratification of the various treaties hereto
fore concluded between the Commission
ers on the part of the United States and
the various Indiai tribes, will result in
the opening of over X.000,000 acres ot pub
lic land to settlement. The aggregate
cost to the Government will be about
89,000,000. About ...0t.0,000 acres of tiie

mis-doner Groff received the following
message from John 11. Sharpc, Receiver

'•Pre-emption filings were offered to

The answer to this was, "Allow pre
emption filings where settlement is al

riod prescribed by Sections 2202 and 2204,
The Department received over thirty

Petitions in Behalf of Rnsslan .Tows.
Washington, March s.—William K.
Blackstone, of Chicago, to-day visited the
President, in company with Sceretury
Blame, and presented a memorial in be
half of the Russian Jews. He explained
that the memorial was the result ofa con
ference of Christians and Jews recently
held in Chicago, and called especial atten
tion to the fact that it did not antagonize
Russia, but only sought in a peaceable
way to give tho Jews control of their
homes in Palestine.
The President listened attentively to
Blackstone's remarks, and promised to
give the subject serious consideration.
Failed to bo Confirmed.
Washington, March s.—The following
nominations failed to receive tho con
firmation by the Senate: James H. Beatty,
United States District Judgo for Idaho;
Louis Desmarias, coiner at the mint at
Now Orleans. In tho case oi'Beattv, the
nomination was resisted by the Idaho
Senators on the ground that he was an
active partisan of the Claggott faction,
which sought to invalidate the election of
Senator-elect Dubois, and (inally Senator
FarweH, a warm friend of Dubois, caused
the failure of tho nomination by the de
mand that it lie over a day, which carried
it over Marcli 4th.
Failed to Make an Appropriation.
Washington, March s.—The bill pro
viding for a new mint building at Phila
delphia failed to make any appropriation,
and none was made for "it iv any of the
general appropriation bills. Therefore
the Act cannot be put into etlect, and
Philadelphia will have to come to the

SIR CHARLES DILKE.
The Scandal of Years Gone By Eikely
to be Revived.
London, March 5.—A long statement
has been issued aud is now being circu
lated among the electors of the Forest
Dean division of Gloucestershire on be
half of R. Charles Dilke. On February
25tb it was announced that the electors of
the division asked Sir Charles Dilke to
be their candidate for Parliament at the
comihg general election. He assented,
provided he had a fair assurance from the
majority of Liberal electors that his can
didacy would receive their support. Now
it is learned that Sir Charles supplied tho
Liberal organization with a statement for
private circulation vindicating himself
against the charges made against him in
connection with the famous Crawford-
Dilke divorce case. According to this
statement, Captain Forster ought to have
been tho co-respondent, and not Sir
Referring to tho notorious "Fanny"
the pamphlet says: "She is now happily
married and known as Mrs. Stock." The
pamphlet says that Mrs. Crawford, dur
ing the divorce proceedings, mado the
assertion that "Fanny" had been Sir
Charles Dilke's mistress.
"Fanny" has made a statutory declara
tion giving a full account of herself and a
sworn denial of Mrs. Crawford's story.
The general opinion seems to be that'the
pamphlet will reopen the agitation of
years gone by, and will probably win
over to Sir Charles' side a number who
previously condemned him, but that it
will fail to completely vindicate him.
The Southern California Railway's An
swer to tlio Railway Commission.
San Francisco, March s.—Auditor
Branson* of tho Southern California
Railway Company, filed his answer to
day with the Railroad Commission, rela
tive to the ordered restoration of rates
from Los Angeles to Pasadena. Tho
communication opens with a statement
that the rates WCre not reduced to meet
competition, but were regulated to suit
the company's convenience and ideas of
justice. After the construction ofthe Los
Angeles Terminal Company the rates
were adjusted by the two' companies
without consultation and without reduc
The communication claims that the
company had a right to lower or raise the
rates on commutation tickets, as it sees
fit. A discharge of the judgment of the
commission is asked.
Coeur d'Alene Reservation Lands.
Si'okane PaIXS (Wash.), March 6.—
The passage of the bill opening the Cceur
d'Alene reservation to .settlement has
created a stampede almost equal to the
i 'klahoma craze. For several months
large mnnbei's of people have been
camped along the borders of the reserva
tion, and fully two thousand men have
poured into Post Falls and Cceur d'Alene
City, which are on the border of the reser
vation, during the past two days. More
settlers are coming in by every train.
They are waiting forthe President to issue
the proclamation, and then trouble is ex
pected, as some of the Indians will object
to giving up their land.

Washington, March s.—The Bureau
! of American Republics is informed that
| the President of the Argentine Republic
j has recommended to Congress several
radical revenue laws which have created
bitter enmity against the administration
iv commercial circles.
The President, in his message, holds
that such measures are absolutely neces
sary to maintain the credit of the Govern
ment, and asks their indorsement by
Congress, but Congress has not yet rati
fied the suggestion. He proposed first to
impose an export duty of five per cent,
ad valorem upon animal oil, horns,
jerked beef, bone ash, horse hair, hides
and skins, bones, wool, tallow and ostrich
leathers, which constitute the great bulk
of exports of the Argentine Republic.

legislative committee appointed to in
vestigate the accident at the Mammoth

miners were killed, In its report says:
"The accumulation of" gas was not very
large, hut the explosion was intensified
by the accumulation of coal dust, and
most ofthe men lost their lives chiefly
from 'after damp.' The mine foreman
and inspector of the district did not make
such careful examinations of the air cur
rents at or near the face of the headings
as contemplated by law."
Race Troublo Imminent.
St. Lotis, March 5.—A special from
Oklahoma City says the race question is
assuming a serious phase in Oklahoma
Territory, and tho continued agitation
which the subject is raising is more than
likely to result in a collision between the
whites and blacks. During the last six
months negroes from the South have
been docking into the Territory by hun
dreds in response to glittering induce
ments held out by unscrupulous real
estate dealers who have laid out a mythi
cal town near Guthrie. The negroes ar
riving are destitute and suffering from
the severe cold: but the worst feature of
the case is the fact that the new arrivals
have brought the small-pox with them.
The disease is spreading, and the news
papers have openly declared in favor of
instituting a quarantine against tho

Governor Hill again refused to honor
Bulkley's signature as Governor, on the
ground that Bulkley was not the proper

With his refusal Governor Hill filed a
lengthy opinion, in which he says Bulk

Bay City (Mich.), March s.—The body

Poulson was arrested several months ago

was arrested on suspicion, as he was with
Poulson last night.
Another J. Wilkes Rootli Story.
Chicago, March 5.—A morning paper
says: It is generally believed by the
people of Atlanta, Ga., that Rev. J. G.
Armstrong, who recently died in that
city, was J. Wilkes Booth. Two old and
aud well-informed citizens ofthe Georgia
capital are stopping at the Grand Pacific,
and they declare tho people of Atlanta
will not believe otherwise than that tho
late pastor was tho assassin of President
Lincoln. "His resemblance to Booth
was remarkable," declared ono of the
gentleman, who said "he even had a gun
shot wound 011 his leg and a scar on his
neck. It is rumored since the man's
death that he committed suicide and the
Coroner will bo called upon to hold an
inquest. In case of such an event an
effort will be made to find some of the
man's private papers.

Special to the Record-Union.
Washington, March s.—There is a
good deal of interest manifested here re
garding the law recently passed creating
a Court of Appeals in the nine judicial
districts of the United States, and creat
ing niile new Circuit Judges, one of them
being for San Francisco, or tho Ninth
The bill, as passed by the Senato, pro
vided that a new court should be organ
ized and first held on the third Tuesday
in January, 1801.
When the bill passed the House about
a week ago, it -was proposed to change
this date to January, 1892, but on second
thought it was considered wise not to
make any amendments whatever, for in
that case tho bill would have to go back
to the Senate for concurrence, and its suc
cess might be imperilled after the bill's
Senator Dolph went to sco Attorney-
General Miller, who said the President
would not make the appointments until
Congress met again, and they could be
immediately confirmed and the appropri
ations for running the court made. This
plan, however, did not suit f iie friends of
the new bill, and they had the following
resolution passed through both houses
Resolved, That the first meeting of the sev
eral Courts of Appeal mentioned inthe Act of
Congress passed at this present session shall
be held on the third Tuesday in .lime, A. l>.,
1891, and if through any casualty the first
meeting of any of said courts shall' fail to lie
held on that day. the first meeting of any such
courts so failing to be held shall be held on
such day subsequent thereto as the Chief Jus
tice or any Justice of the Supreme Court of
the United States assigned to such circuits
There was also an appropriation of |60,
--000 secured in tho deliciencv bill to pay
the salaries of nine Judges, for the frac
tion of the month of June next, as well
as for the fiscal year ending June 30,1592.
It is argued that if President Harrison
carries out the letter and spirit ot the law
he must appoint the Judges immediately,
or at any rate before the third Tuesday of
June next. The fact that Congress ap
propriated money for tho fiscal year in
their opinion shows clearly that Congress
meant for the new Court of Appeals to be
organized at that time.
The Interstate Commerce Commission
Was created by a law passed February 4.
ISB7, but no appropriation for it was made
until March, 1888. This fact, however,
did not deter President Cleveland from
making the appointments vefv soon after
the law of the 4th of Febrnary, 1887, was
passed, because the law said it should be
done within sixty days after its passage.
In the case of the new Court of Ap
peals, however, provision is made for the
salaries, and the spirit of the law clearly
contemplates the organization ofthe court
in June next. This will be clearly pre
sented to President Harrison, ancl it is
hoped that the appointments will be made
soon, and the court organized in June
Will Not Fight.

taken. His attempt to face that hostility
and secure a looting again in London was
abortive. The mention of Gladstone's or
MO. arthy's name by Parnell during tho
speech evoked cheers which drowned his
voice. One time it looked as if he would
be uliable to proceed in the tempest of
cheers and hisses, counter cheers and
groans. The morning papers say it is
evident that Parnell has" iost his hold in
London, and ridicule his attempt last

Man and Woman Arrested Charged
With Murdorincr a Physician.
Monaco, March 5.—A man and woman
have been arrested here and charged
with the murder of a physician named
Liudermann, of Manchester, whose body
was found at the time in a ravine near
San Remo. At first it was thought to be
suicide, but investigation brought out the
fact that it was murder. It now appears
that the police allowed the suicide or ac
cident theory to got abroad in order to
better enable them to follow out the real
theory— that of murder.
It was thought likely that the murderer
or murderers upon hearing that the au
thorities of San Remo had arrived at the
conclusion ofthe English physicians that
death was caused by accident or suicide,
would relax their vigilance and thus fall
more readily into the hands of justice.
From the moment the doctor's body was
found, Uie authorities of Sau Remo never
ceased their investigations and gradually
wove a net of evidence around the sus
pected ones, which yesterday resulted in
the arrest here ofa man and woman, who
are charged with the crime.
The woman, it appears, lured the doctor
to the lodgings she occupied at San Remo.
It is concluded that the doctor when in the
woman's apartments was drugged, mur
dered aud robbed by tbe woman, assisted
by a man supposed to ba her lover, and
who was taken into custody with her.
The arrests have caused much commo-
tion here. It is rumored tho man and
woman in custody may have other and
similar crimes charged against them, and
that the woman may have been used to
iure other men to their doom.
Berlin, March s.—During the debate
on tho naval estimates in the Reichstag
to-day, Herr Jebson, a ship-owner, com
plained of the failure of Germany to
send a man-of-war to Chile. He argued
that the British man-of-war did not sat
isfactorily protect the German interests.
Admiral Holmau replied that with the
multiplicity of naval stations, it was im
possible at present to send a vessel to
Chile. He urged the Reichstag to sanction
the proposed increase of estimates for the

DEED OF A IIALF-IJREED IN LOWER

Who was Lying Asleep on
Special to the Rfcord-Union.
San Diego, March 5.—A story of a hor
rible crime comes from San Quentin,
Lower California, which rates among the
horrors of Nero's time. On Sunday last,
Joso Muir, a half-breed, made an at
tempt on the life of Filepe Sanehes, who
was lying asleep on the sidewalk in front
of a saloon.
Muir came along, about half drunk, and
tried to awaken the sleeping man. Fail
ing, he opened the shirt of Sanehes, and,
drawing a knife, made a motion to dis
embowel him. He found the job could
not bo done with a dull knife, for after
feeling of the edge of the blado stepped
to the inside and sharpened it quite de
liberately on a stone, trying it occasion
ally on his dampened finger, and then
smiling at the bystanders, who thought
He finally secured the proper edge,
and, kneeling by the sido of Sanehes,
plunged the blade in the sleeping man's
abdoiuen. He then partially withdrew it,
ran it over against the hip bone, turned
the knife and forced it upward as far as
the ribs would allow it to go.
Muir then pulled the shirt back over
the horrible gap, straightened up, smil
ingly nodded to the persons around him,
licked the blood from the blade on one
side and placed the knife back in the
scabbard by his side.
He was seized by those who witnessed
tho crime and placed in custody.
t Sanehes was alive at last accounts. ,
Referring to his crime, Muir says he
was a good friend of Sanehes but wanted
to try his new knife. He is now in jail at
