S.rnest eans to correct all abuses ii.

as his actions are concerned, he
does not deprecate criticism, bu.
gther invites it. At the same tim,
be says that certain military ofii
's, of late, have fallen into the
habit o( indulging, officially andc
publiclyin general reflections on
the Iqlian Bureau, without taking
ta ttiable of substantiating them
4etail, so as to facilitate the dis
covery and correction of the abuses.
(a the other hand, it is admitted is
army eireles that while General
Sherilan was really mistaken in re
ga to the removal of one or two
agencies, his charges of misman
agement, and also those of General
Gibbone, are entirely correct. It is
claimed that Indians who were fed
near the Missouri river last winter,
have been removed two hundred
miles from the base of supplies,
which have to be hauled that din
tance at a heavy cost, and that the
j sum appropriated will not feed them
until spring, consequently, before
the winter is over, they will have to
either steal and fight, or starve.
'Whatever blame there may he in
'ithe matter, or upon whose shoul
ders the fault lies, it is still true
that we are not much more ad
vaneed in our general relations with
the Indians than we were fifty yearsi
ago. Much of the responsibility for
this is due to the practice of dishon
eat Indian agents, a large majority
of whom have been unprincipled
speculators, defrauding and deceiv
ing both the Indians and the Gov
ernment It is about time, however,
that the Indians should begin to see
and appreciate the advantages of
civilization, sad it would doubtless
be much more beneficial and eco
nomieal, if our future Indian war
fare could be confied to the "big
chiefs" of the Interior and War De
partments, provided it should result
in securing the blessings of peace
throughout the frontier coimtry. I

Hayes denies any intention of in
terfering with the course of justice
in the embezzlement case of C. W.
Miller, of Indianapolis, Ind. Mil
ler's friends applied to the Presi
,dent to issue a pardon and ave
him from a criminal prosecution.
This was done after the bank had
been paid the amount embezzled,
and the President simply informed
the District Attorney not to present
SMiller's case to the grand jury at
present. Such action is had almost
every day throughout the country.

Later it was officially announced I
that no reply had been received
from the Ameer, and that the home
authorities had ordered an immedi

India. Henceforth the conduct of
affairs will remainu exclusively with i
the Indian -goermnent."

"Yes," the lady demurely replied.

the tenant; "if it was not the Brst

"Because," answered the man, "we

A certain noble earl and a priest
lived on the msae Irish estate. Both
of the gentlemen were thoroughly

to different creeds, they considered
it neceesary to "agree tofdir."
After a while they met at the bouse
of a mutual friend, when it was ar
ranged that their aaggressdions upon
each other should be restricted to
the narrowest limits. They shook
hands and separated upon the best
possible terms, on the understand

the Earl once a year from the altar,
on Christmas Day, and that the

! I Senator Voorhees, it is mai,
will intr6duce a bill in Congress
this winter to make the trade dol
lar a legal tender. This; he says,
will add at once some $20,000,000
to the circulation of the country.
The trade doilar is now certainly
what Voorhees ealled it-i swindle.
It was coined for the Chinese trad ,
but they won't take it because it
does not contain as mueh silver as
the Chinese or Mexican dollar
while in this ountry it is not eor
rent because it contains more silver
than the standard silver dollar aad
has a different eagle imprinted on
it. The trade dollar contains ten
cents more silver than the standard
dollar, but is worth ten cents has.
Senator Voorhees desires to correct
this strange contradietion.
