RECIPROCITY WITH CANADA.
LONDON, Aug. 26.The Times, on the desire
of the United States to negotiate a reciprocity
treaty with Canada on the basis of the econ
omical doctrines prevalent in the Union, says
(Janada is within the operation of England's
commercial treaties and could not establish re
ciprocity with the United States without trans
gressing the most favored native clause in these
treaties. The Times concludes as follows:
Whether apart from the question of our treaty
obligations, there would be any disposition in
Canada to assent to the proposal, is most doubt
ful. The mind of Canada can bo freely ex
pressed in the parliament of the
Dominion and we are willing to abide
by its free declarations. There
is no disposition to fetter Canadian liberty of
action, even if the establishment of a custom
union with the United States was the result of
it, but the prospects of the scheme are at least
doubtful. When the subject was raised some
four years since the Dominion government
protested they would never listen to any sug
gestion for the admission of manufacturers of
the United States on more favored terms than
those of the United Kingdom, and we have no
reason to suppose any change of sentiment has
since been developed.
PARIS, Aug. 2C.The monetary conference is
expected to terminate Wednesday. The dele
gates will dine at Elysee Tuesday. At the sit
ting to-day Groesbeck urged the resumption of
free mintage of silver on the ground that cir
cumstances have greatly altered till its BUS*
pension by the Latin Union in Ger
many the stock iH greatly reduced and
Asiatic demands have revived. The Swiss
representative contended that if the Latin
union had not suspended free mintage of silver
the countries composing it would have been
deluged by demonetized German stocks. He
also feared the Nevada and South American
supply might increase the Belgian representa
tive, pointed out the impossibility of
fixing the value of silver by litigation.
Le Combe, of the English delegation, pointed
out that silver was liable to great fluctuations,
and these might be aggravated by changes in
currency and the laws of various countries. No
resolution of Congress, he said, could effectively
lessen this evil.as every government would study
only its national interests. Horton, of the
American delegation, congratulated England
and France on having changed the opinion
they held in 1867 in favor of demonetization of

The Commissioner Gives Hi Version of
the Origin of the Controversy in Rela
tion to Half Breeds at Indian Agencies.
WASHINGTON, Aug. 26.Indian Commissioner
Hayt publishes a paper on the recent endorse
ments received by Gens. Sheridan and Terry of
a report made by Col. Carlin regarding half
breeds born at Indian agencies, and says the
paper would have appeared sooner bat the sec
retary of the interior regarded it needless.
The commissioner addressed his communica
tion to whom it may concern, and gives this
origin of the trouble: Early in December
last there was a conference at the White
House, intended to enable the civil and mili
tary branches of the government to act in har
mony and promptly ascertain the work to be
done on the Missouri river. After the business
had been disposed of some conversation passed
between Gen. Sherman and myself about the
demoralization caused by proximity of soldiers
camps to Indian agencies. Gen. Terry, sitting
at some distance, made a remark he believed
the Sioux women to be exceptionally virtuous,
and asked me if it were not so. I said in
reply, that if it were so those at Standing
Rock Agency must be an exception, as resi
dents from the agency had been in the Indian
bureau a short time previously, and had stated
that nearly one half of the children born at
that agency were half-breeds. This was all
that has passed between Gen. Terry and myself
on the subject, and was the only reference made
to Standing Rock Agency. It would seem that
if there was anything said by me
on that occasion that would justify
Gen. Terry's subsequent letters, that was the
time and place to make the issue, as there were
present the President, Secretary Schurz, Gen.
Sherman, Gen. Terry, Supt. Hammond and
myself. Commissioner Hayt thus closes his
paper: "One effect of the publication of these
endorsements will be to surprise the public
that officers in high positions should indulge
in a style of remark that at best closely re
sembles the Chinese method of warfare, and
has only to be persevered in to bring honorable
names into disrepute.".

Charles H. Marshall, ship owner, told the
story of the decline in the American shipping
trade, attributing it to England getting ahead in
the use of iron* construction of vessels, and
to the navigation laws which crushed
out the remaining vitality in the

return to capitalists in the ship owning trade
at present. Our profit is a negative one, as we
only save ourselves by running our snips at a

Opens the Campaign for the Presiden
tial Thieves in Ohio.
TOLEDO, Aug. 26.The political campaign in
Northwestern Ohio was to-night opened on the
part of the Republicans by Secretary Sherman,
who addressed a largely attended meeting at
Wheeler's Opera House. The secretary devoted
himself mainly to consideration of the finan
cial question. Mr. Sherman during his speech
read a letter from a correspondent of the Cin
cinnati Enquirer of to-day, in which the fol
lowing questions were asked about the trade
dollar: FirstWhat is the matter with the
trade dollar? I expect you to say it is not a
legal tender, nor is it for ninety cents. Sec-
ondDid the government receive dollar for
dollar when she put the trade dollar out? and,
ThirdDid the person on receiving the trade
dollar from the government do so with the un
derstanding that he had to take it to China to
spend it? If anybody is to blame who is it?
He said that the trade dollar was not a legal
tender, but it is worth 90 cents as bullion. The
standard dollar is a legal tender and therefore
worth par. This is the difference. To the
second question he answered that the govern
ment did not receive dollar for dollar for the
trade dollar, but received 1 cents for coining
each dollar for private bullion owners. That
waB all. I was the miller that ground the grist
for a small percentage. To the third question
he replied that the bullion owner did Deceive
the trade dollar for exportation to China, a de
vice made to give him a market for his bullion,
and upon the fall of silver it was perverted by
him as a means of cheating our own people.

Contributions Being Made All Over the
Not for the Benefit of the Sufferers.
MEMPIS, Tenn., Aug. 26.To-day the weather
has been cloudy and gloomy in the extreme.
The fever has not only increased in the city,
but has seemed to thwart the efforts to save the
lives of many poor people who are moved out
of the city, by appearing in two camps. It is
now difinitely known that three deaths occured
yesterday from fever at camp. Joe Fillians
ani several other refugees are sick. In ad
dition to these a woman also died from heart
disease. When found, this morning in her
tent, a young babe was discovered on its dead
mother's breast, asking it's wanted nourish
ment. At the camp near Overton Station, on
the Memphis & Paducah railroad, Cuarlea F.
Egan died this afternoon. For the past twen
ty-four hours the board of health
records show one hundred new
cases and twenty-six interments. Dr. Alex.
Erskine was taken down to-day. Also Father
McGaveny and Botel, of St. Peter's parish.
There is great need for physicians and nurses,
our own physicians having more than they can
attend to, and many of the Bick having to go
for days without attention of nurses. A ride
through the districts where the fever is the
worst draws forth many appeals to be directed
where and how to obtain the services of a phy
sician. As a result many do not receive medi
cal attention until too late to save life. The
Howards employ five physicians, but sick calls
are more than they can attend to. Two of onr
practicing physicians have died with fever, and
five others are now down.
NEW ORLEANS, Aug. 26.New cases, 125
deaths, 44, Dr. Warran Stone, who returned
from Port Eads on Sunday, leaves for Grenada
thiB evening in response to a call from the
Howards. The Picayvne says: "By private
letter it is learned that the fever plague at
Iberville parish has largely increased, and the
people are sadly afflicted, and they suffer chief
ly for want of physicians and nurses, and those
who are in good health are mainly employed in
taking care of those who are down.
The Times says the strong sympathy shown
to the afflicted by the more fortunate cities of
the North is something not to be easily forgot
ten. On every side we hear of the most noble
efforts being made to raise contributions in aid
of th afflicted. While the North with a lavish
hand is soothing the fevered brow of Southern
ers suffering, she is building a monument of
gratitude which will be luminous for ever.

THE BRITISH COLUMBIAN METHOD.
A Tax of Forty Dollars a Head on Six
[From the San Francisco Chronicle.]
The neighboring province of British
Columbia has latterly been in the throes of
an anti-Chinese agitation quite as vigorous
as that now prevalent in this State, and
measures for the abatement of coolie im
migration and a reduction of the scourge
upon civilization to safe control have been a
leading issue before the provincial parlia
ment, at present sitting in Victoria. Th
plan devised by the government party, en
titled the Chinese tax bill, after
a long course of spirited discussion,
attended with a variety of propo
sitions to amend, wajj nnallj^passed on the
10th* insk with no' material change from the
original form, except a reduction of the pro
posed tax on Chinamen from $60 to SBdOper
annum. The parliament was apparently
unanimous on the necessity of restricting
Chinese immigration and regulating coolie
labor, and the opposition to the bill, evi
dently excited on behalf of those interested
in fostering coolie labor, mrnifested itself
in u.-ging delays and amendments calculated
to render the act ineffective or to incur
the disapproval of the superior authority
of the dominion government. Al
though subject to the approval of the gov
ernor general, and to the imperial sanction
as well, if its provisions may be found to
conflict with any treaty obligations binding
the British government and its dependen
cias in common, the act becomes immedi
ately operative, and the Chinese have the
alternative of paying their tribute of $40 per
capita, or commuting by labor upon the pub
lic highways at the rate of 75 cents a day,
less the expense of board and lodgings.
This obligation is rendered unavoidable by a
supplementary clause imposing a severe pen
alty, either by fine or imprison
ment, on any person employing a
Chinaman who is not armed with a receipt
from the government as evidence that he is
duly licensed to labor in the province. The
number of Chinese in British Columbia at
present is estimated at between five and
six thousand, and taking the lower estimate
the aggregate revenue from this source will
amount to the round sum of $200,000, which
is considerably in excess of the entire revenue
of the province heretofore realized from
taxation. About 1,500 coolies are employed
in the salmon canneries on Frazer River,
and these will be held to a "tribute of
$45,000, which sum the employers may ad
vance on the wages of the coolies if neces
sary. For some years past the Chinese have
been taking out nearly $2,000,000 annually
from the gold mines of British Columbia,
all of which has been sent out of the coun
try, with a large amount in addition gained
from general pursuits* Their expenditures
in the country for any other benefit than the
trade of their own merchants is infinitesi
mal, and they have thus far almost com
pletely escaped tribute to the government
which tolerates and protects them, through
their shrewdness in concealing the value and
ownership of property and their proverb
talent for falsehood. The pres
ial ence of the Chinese in the province, their
numbers having been largely increased in the
past few months, has also imposed a heavy
burden on the taxpaying public, by reason of
their lawlessness and the necessity* of main
taining hundreds of them in the prisons.
Viewed on all points the people of British
Columbia believe that the new law is entire
ly just and proper, and it is expected that
the effect of the act will be to interrupt the
coolie invasion, encourage the departure of
a surplus already in the province and hold
those that remain to the payment of their
fair proportion of the expenses of govern
ment. Polygamous Wom en Not of Good Moral

VOUDOOISM I N BALTIMORE.
-Ex- A Buried Bottle the Witch's Spell
huming the Bottle Gives Relief.
[Baltimore Evening Bulletin.]
The small houses on Watson street, be
tween Central avenue and Little Gough
street, are inhabited by negroes who have
been intensely excited for several days past
by the" nefarious practices of a so-called
conjurer. The person upon whom the deni
zens of "Watson street believe the conjurer
has laid his spell is a young colored woman
named Julia Green, who was born in St.
Mary's county, Maryland. When the Bui
letin reporter met her yesterday she certainly
had the appearance of being a woman who
had suffered terribly from some mysterious
cause. Thin, even to emaciation, her hands
were long and skeleton-like in their wanness,
while her eyes wore an anxious, restless
expression, as if she felt the
presence of some terrible malady.
While speaking she seemed deeply
affected, and talked in a way that showed she
had no hope save from some superhuman
source. She says she came to Baltimore
about twelve years ago, and up to within
four months past had been living with a man
named Henry Clayton, by whom she had two
children. About a year ago Clayton neglect
ed Julia, and commenced going with a wom
an named Maggie Mitchell. This created
ill-feeling between them, and one day the
woman Mitchell came to her house^No. 76
Weston street, and, pushing open the door,
came in and began to fight her. I the
melee which ensued Maggie pulled out a
handful of Julia's hair. After they were
separated Maggie stooped down, dipped it in
some of Julia's blood, which had been spilled
upon the floor, and going out remarked: I
wall fix heir yet." Soon after this Clayton
to live with the woman Mitchell, who
continued to make threats-against her.
One day, about four months ago, while
Julia was sitting in the kitchen with Clay
ton's mother, she was suddenly seized with
intense pains all through her body her mind
wandered, and her left arm became paralyzed.
Since then she has had similar sensations
repeatedly, while her body, which was strong
and fleshy when the attacks commenced,
has wasted away to a shadow. Last Friday,
while the children were playing in the yard,
a bottle. I it was a
rough figure of herself cut out of some
dark-looking liquid. She
doubt this was the conjurer's
charm, and became almost wild
with joy when she first saw it. She has been
feeling much better ever since, and believes
if the bottle can be kept safe the will get
well. The policeman on the beat wanted to
break the bottle open to see what was in it,
but all the old people said if it was broken
the person for whom the spell was intended
would surely die very soon. When the bot
tle was first found the negroes in the neigh
borhood crowded into the small house to get
a look at the mysterious contents, and for a
while the street in front was completely
lined with a mass of eager and excited
THE GOLDEN BEACH.
An Expert's Opinion that Gold-Bearing
Sand.* 3tay Be Found the Entire Length
of the fact fie Coast.
[San Francisco Chronicle.]
J. Best, who for the past ten years has
.been aoBneOed wifrhHho light-house depart
ment of this coast, and who has been per
sonally interested in the analyzing of the
auriferous sands and gravels of this coast,
stated during an interview with a Chronicle
reporter, yesterday, that he was of the opin
ion gold-bearing sands could be found the
entire length of the Pacific coast, from Point
Trinidad to British Columbia, and that with
in those points there could not be found a
space five miles in length which did not con
tain claims that either were being worked or
had at some time been worked and aban
doned, leaving the remains of former works
as a sign of previous occupancy. The only
claims upon the east line that have ever been
thoroughly worked, that is, worked in such
a manner as to extract every particle of
color from the gravel worked, were those
at Gold Bluffs, the upper bluff beinc the
property of Mr. Fernald and the lower be
longing to Mr. Chapman. These claims are
very valuable, some 100,000 having been
taken out of the lower one since Jan 1 last.
The bluffs are from three hundred feet to
seven hundred feet in height, and are ac
cessible only at two or three points. The
miners rely upon the tide to assist them in
their work, and depend upon the surf's com
ing in either from the southwest or north
west, when it rolls up the beach, and dash
ing against the bluffs retreats, taking the
gray sand with it and leaving long, narrow,
semi-circular shaped veins of dark blue
sand, which is scooped up by the miners,
packed on mules and taken to a corral, where
it is worked out at leisure. A working test
was made a short time since of 1,445 pounas
of sand taken from the Chapman, which re
sulted in a yield of 36.70 worth of 957-
1,000 fine gold, or $27.28 to the ton. Several
experiments relative to the respective rich
ness of sands taken from different poinis
along the coast line were made by Mr. Best
with the aid of a coal shovel and a bucket of
water. Two ounces of sand taken from the
Stone Lagoon beach, in Humboldt county,
panned out thirty-four colors or about $ 10
to the ton, This estimate is based on a cal
culation made by actual eount and weight
of five hundred and fifty colors to the cent.
This specimen of sand might more properly
be called a light-blue gravel and is very
easily worked. Sands taken from this
locality have never been, known to yield less
than 36 cents, or uiorP than $8.21 per ton.
Two ounces of sand taken from the ocean
beach, panned out in a like manner, yielded
sixteen colors, many of which were so
minute that th% could scarcely be seen.
Allowing eight hundred colors to the cent
the result would be $2.6G to the ton. This
sample was worked with difficulty, owing to
fineness and the large amount of magnetic
iron it contained, and which caused it to
clog together like steel filings. Two ounces
of sand taken from the beach in the vicinity
of Pistol river, Oregon, upon being similarly
treated, yielded thirty-two colors or about
$5.12 to the to't. The gravel was of a
bluish-gray color' aud easily worked. A
specimen taken from this beach yielded
$56.24 to the ton by actual assay. Mr. Best
thought that the only way in which these
sands could be worked so as to be any ex
tent remunerative would be by making use
of the most improved machinery, thereby
enabling the miner to thoroughly work out
the most minute particles or "flour gold"
contained in them.
The gold diggings recently discovered by
A. J. J. Phelps, located near Mussel Rock,
in San Mateo county, and extending thence
southerly along the beach toward Point San
Pedro, were visited yesterday by a Chronicle
reporter* Th route to the place where
Phelps is encamped is tortuous in the ex
treme, and is not likely to be troubled and
annoyed by any large influx of Sunday
visitors. Phelps has pitched his tent within
a few hundred yards of tb* rock, in a shel
tered little nook, which he' has christened
"Fresh Water Canon." I is so called be
cause a stream of clear, limpid water flows
down the hills from Lagnna Alta, a mile
away. Th precipitous sandstone bluffs
closely resemble those of the ocean-beach
mines, but the beach itself is somewhat
lower. These bluffs are believed to contain
more or leas of the gold, which is also found
in the black sand in streaks and patches that
are believed to be sufficiently auriferous to
pay well for the working. Over ten thous
and feet have been secured by one company,
and numerous other claims to the southward
have also been staked out by private parties.
E. Ton Tiederman is the recorder for the
mining district of San Mateo county.

The Contest Between the Civil and Mili
If the report be correct that, as a result of
Inspector Hammond's overhauling of the
Standing Rock agency, Agent Hughes has
resigned, his obituary probably must be
gone to join Livingstone, Gregory, Gasman,
Clarkson and Hudson. Inspector Ham
mond hardly treads anywhere, on his tour
along the Missouri, without slumping
throughso thin is the crust that covers up
the frauds, thievings and perjuries of some
agencies, and the inefficiency and imbecility
Standing Rock has long been a standing
quarrel and rock of offensea pierre
Wechauffement between the civil and mili
tary authorities. I was at the Standing
Bock and the Cheyenne River agencies that
the ponies of the Indians were seized two
yeawagobykhe mititary authorities, after
the civilian commissioners had ex
pressly promised that they should not be
seized, thus bringing the two in direct con
flict. The feeling of hostility engendered
by this affair between the military and civil
authorities was increased a few months since
when the latter charged the former with
fearfully demoralizing the agency. This
charge was made by Commissioner Hayt
directly to President Hayes, and was after
wards repeated, so that there might be no
mistake. Gen. Terry, the department com
mander, ordered an investigation at once, in
the course of which the priest at the agency,
the school teachers, and the Indian chiefs
were examined. Instead of ally halt of the
four score and more of the illegitimate half
breeds around the post being the children of
soldiers, only about half a dozen were proved
to have this paternity, while the greater por
tion of them were traced to civilian employes
connected with the agency. This refuta
tion of the scandalous charges was, however,
received in silence at Washington, whereup
on Gen. Sheridan called attention for a sec
ond, and, finally, for a third time, to the re
sult of the investigation and, alluding to
"the well-known irreproachable character of
Gen. Terry, and his high sense of honor and
fairness," he added, I fully sympathize with
him in his endeavor to clear his brother offi
cers and soldiers of his command from the
charges made against them by the commis
sioner of Indian affairs." Gen. Sherman
put on an endorsement still more emphatic:
"1 confess," he wrote, I have no patience to
deal with the Indian question. The experi
ence of such men as Gens. Carlin, Terry, and
Sheridan, who have for thirty years lived in
contact with Indians, is pooh-poohed by
the present commissioner, a mere novice, a
mere theorist, who never saw a real Indian."
He also pointed out that "military discipline
does something to curb the soldiers, whereas
the agents and employes are restrained by no
consideration, moral or physical." This was
in May last.
Last month the ill-feeling between the
rival authorities culminated in a ludicrous
incident, which might have become serious.
Some of the Indian chiefs seized Hughes,
the agent, and carried him to the river,**
where, as he claimed, they attempted to
drown him, being wickedly moved there
unto by Col. Carlin, the military poet com
mander. It was soon ascertained, however,
that Hughes had undertaken to break sev
eral chiefs, and enroll them as common In
dians under other chiefs. One of these was
named "Goose," whom the Indian bureau
call a very bad Indian." His adherents
had no notion of having their goose cooked
in such a fashion, and rebelled. Hughes at
once threw himself on their line of supplies
he stopped their daily rations. They en-"
dured this till very hungry, and then ran
him to the river bank, intending, not to
drown him, but to put him over, and so get
him out of the reservation by the exercise
of popular sovereignty and lynch law. Col.
Carlin, at this juncture, hurried personally
to the scene, ordering his companies of sol
diers to follow, rescued Hughes and arrested
Accordingly, Inspector Hammond, who
was in the region, investigating the Crow
Creek frauds, was directed to repair to Stand
ing Rock. His very first conclusion was
that there was no ground for presuming or
believing that Col. Carlin had invited the
attack on Hughes, or, as it was more cau
tiously stated at Washington, "that he might
have prevented it." But the investigation
soon went deeper, for already serious irreg
ularities were charged. Some of these bore
a disagreeable family resemblance to those
of Crow Creek. Among them were report
ing more Indians on hand than were actually
there supplying the agency trader with
goods sent out for free distribution to the
Indians procuring signatures of Indian
chiefs to documents by misrepresent
ing their contents cutting off
supplies from Indians in an
arbitrary way, either for gain or for tyrannical
power, and producing thereby serious cases
of starvation and misusing contracts for
personal gain. It is due to Agent Hughes
to say that some of these charges obviously
rest on his dealings with Indians like
"Goose," and need not imply fraud that
the jealousy of army officers and sympathiz
ing civilians nny have supplied others, and
that a few months since an Indian commis
sioner examined the charges then existing,
and seemed to consider them of small ac
count. For example, it is maintained that
though the trader borrowed from the agency
supplies during midwinter, he repaid exactly
when the weather allowed his own store sup
plies to come through, the advance having
meanwhile been a convenience to the com
The full results of the inquiry are not yet
officially made public but if Agent Hughes
has been suffered
to step down and out, In-
spector Hammond is obviously satisfied that
the agency needs a change. Secretary
Schurz and Commissioner Hayt have given
ample proof this year that their promises to
reform the Indian agencies were not empty
words. The appointment of Gen. Ham
mond, last winter, as inspector, was a clear
case of getting the right man in the right
place, as the work already done in the Crow
Creek agency, the Lower Bride agency, the
Yankton agency, the Cheyenne River agency,
and the Standing Rock agency, will show.
