Washington,March28 ^[Special to the^Independent]^The Montana people ex^pected that the nomination of It. K. White,^of Dillon, to be governor of the territory,^would be sent to the senate to-day, but^they were disappointed* and believe Mr.^White will be nominated on Tuesday. The^next appointment to be considered is that^of secretary of the territory, and Messrs.^Craven and Sharp seem to have about^equal strength. Messrs. Carter, Hershucld^and Russell Harrison are said to be lndlf^ferent as to which of these gentlemen shall^be appointed, in this respect they are^setter agreed than they were upon^the governorship. Russell Harrison's^support of McCutcheon is sup^posed to have been the reason
hyHerschfield could not get the gov^^ernorship. Delegate Carter has worked^strongly for him, but when it became im^^practicable to appoint Hershfield 08 ac^^count of Russell Harrison's opposition^Hershfield assented to the proposition^that White should be appointed. White^also was opposed, but It is understood^that Delegate Carter and Mr. Hershfield^have accepted the situation gracefully.
JamesBlaine Walker's chances for the^Helena postoflice are not believed to tie^very good. It Is objected to him that he is^very young, tnd has no claims on the party.^Hts uncle is not doing anything for him.

tieport of the Heuata ^ 1i^ ^ ou Hie
Washington,March 28 By resolution^of the senate Jan. 7 last, the committee on^mines and mining was instructed to ascer^^tain all the facts aud circumstances con^^nected with the bringing of certain sutts^by the United States agslnst persons for^cutting timber for mining and domestic^purposes in Nevada and to ascertain if such^suits have caused any Interruption In min^Ing operations In the state. In accordance^with this resolution Senator Stewart sub^nutted a report to the senate to-day. The^report says since 1H4H miners have made^their own rules and regulations limiting^the extent of mining claim**, governing the^right of possession and regulating the use^of luuiner and water for mining purposes^and the legality of these rules and regula^tlons was affirmed by the decision of three^conrte. The practice of cuttr g timber was^continued, the report says, until 1*77^when Secretary Schurz caused prose^cuiions to be instituted against the mm^ers of some or the territories^for cutting timber. The matter was^brought to the attention of congress and^June 8, 1H7H an act was passed authorizing^the miners In the mining districts of the^Tnited States to fell and remove timber^tor mining and domestic purposes. The^miners, ttie reports says, treated this act as^a settlement of the question and were not^interfered with again for some time. In^April, 1KH7. the district attorney In N*^vada advised tiie prosecution of miners in^that state for usfug scrubby timber f^^r^mining and domestic purposes. Later^the department of the interior sent a special^ag*:., *o the state who was authorized^to make a thorough investigation of the^alleged cutting. The special agent ad^vised the institution of three suits fortlm^ber trespass. The department subsequent^ly authorized these to be instituted. These^suits and several others were brought in^December last, and as a result two of the^principal mines in Eureka closed down.^The conclusion of the committee is that the^suits brought by the Ignited Stales have^been a great obstruction to the mining in^dustry in eastern Nevada; that they are^needless and vexatious, aud that the attor^^ney-general In authorizing three of the^suits must have done so under a uilsappre^hensiou of the facts.

It Is clear^that America Is aiming at this line of^policy, annexing none of the islands her^^self and doing her utmost to preserve the^peace of the Pacific. This also Is certaln,to^be the policy of alt the Kngllsh possessions^in this part of the world.

It ls clear the^centre of power among the Anglo-SaxoD^rsce is shifting to America, as the centre of^population has already done. It Is, there-^lore, unwise of Kngland to ueglect her in^^terests In such a time of emergency. The^I'uited States does not require a standing^army and consequently the whole re^^stnin ea of the people so oircuinslanced^could be devoted solely to the maintenance^of a navy which would make the Anglo-^Saxon race absolute masters of the world.

Berlin,March 28.^ Ceunt Herbert Ida^marck's visit to Kngland, following closely^upon that of Sir Kdwsrd Malet, the Brltlah^ambassador, has given rise to all kinds of^political speculations. The rumor that^Kngland Is about to Join the triple alllanca^may, however, be dismissed summarily, a*^may also the statement* of the oftkclat^press tnar the count s merely making a^holiday visit. The fact Is fits visit has ^^double object, the most ImtMirtant part of^which Is the arrangement of the details for^the emperor's visit t^i Kngland during the^coming summer snd to ascertain the wishea^of Queen Vlcrotla as to whether the visit^shall be merely of a domestic nature or^shall assume a state character. During^the past week Count Bismarck has had a^aamg of long Interviews with the emperor^at which the matter of his majesty's visit^was fully discussed. In the seeonu place.^Count Herbert will take an opportunity to^discuss with Lord Salisbury colonial mat^^ters affecting the two nations.
