Latest Reports from Leading
Erecrotary Teller, on Monday, rendered, a de
cision respecting the right of mill-owners and
residents upon tho mineral lands, of the United
'States to cut wood and timber from such lands
within tho lines of mining claims reularly
locatcd and possessed under the local laws and
customs and the laws of the United St ate gov
erning the location of such claims. Tli Secre
tary holds that "locators of mining claims, so
long as they comply with tho law governing
their possession, are invested by Congress with
tho exclusivo right of possession and enjoy
ment of all the surface included within tho
lines of their locations. This right amounts to
a property, capable of being enjoyed or trans- I
ferrcd subject to all the ordinary rules govern
ing the enjoyment of other property entirely
separable and separate from the fee of the land.
3t may consequently be protected in tho courts,
and it is tho duty of the possessor to care for
his own if trespass bo attempted by a stranger.
Having armed t lie locator with a
complete grant of the possession he alone is con
cerned for its protection, and may undoubtedly
maintain suit to that end, but he can no longer,
after availing himself of the exclusive right,
ask the Government to bring action for what,
is no trespass except against such individual
right of possession."
The Secretary of the Interior has decided, to
re-open for settlement a large tract of agricul
tural land, embracing about 10,000.000 acre $, in
Northern Dakota, which was withdrawn from
sottlemcnt several years ago by Seer tary
Scliurz. This tract once formed part -f tho
groat Sioux reservation, but was purchased by
the Government from that tribe. Portons of
it for some years past have been occup Zed by
the Turtle Mountain Indians, a roving band of
the Chippewa tribe. Several years a?jo these
Indians presented a claim urging the it right
to the occupancy of tho lands in quest ion. and
Secretary Schurr. then withdrew t'ic lands
from settlement pending the cousidc i-ation of
the claim. Secretary Teller now decides that
the claim of the Chippewas is invalifl and re
opens the lands to settlement.

able to obtain from tho Go aeral Assembly the
same concessions in city t;axcs in behalf of
local manufactures to cor 'orations that had
previously been granted to individuals. This
privilege the Legislature h id, however, refused
to 'extend to other counties, in the State. 11q
grot is expressed that no action had been taken
by the Board in reference to the improvement
of our merchant marine service. The Board
has been earnestly prcssi ag upon Congress the
necessity of the ship canal across the isthmus

priation of $10,000 for preliminary surveys.

THE STOCK MARKET.
RctIctt of the Week in Wall Street and Closing
Special to The National Tribune.
Nkw Yoijk, Oct. -1. The market during
the early part of tho day was dull and steady,
chiefly owing to the covering of local shorts,
the hands of the largo operators not showing
on either side. There was an expectant
state of affairs hinging on tho result of
tho Louisville and Nashville meeting, and
when it was announced toward 2 p. m.
a break of nearly 3 per cent, took
place in tho price of that slock,
which tho rest of tho market sympathized
with. The details of tho meeting, in a general
way, are already before tho public. Wo havo
only to add, by way of comment, that it was a
question between bankruptcy and an issuo of
stock, and it was a foregone conclusion in
which way it Avould be decided. Comparing
13,000,000 at 70 with 30,000.000 at 50, and com
bining with the lnttor the knowlcdgo ofa deficit
of net earnings sufficient to meet tho interest
on fixed charges, it will bo seen that even
under the present circumstances tho stock is
at an exaggerated price. There has been a
very fair buying of the better class of securi
ties, and in a general way stocks are going out
of weak hands into stronger ones. At the same
time Mr. Gould is still an important factor in
the market. Money fell from S down to G,
closing at tho latter figure.
