THE PUBLIC DEBT.
Tlio "overniueiil fic.-il year closed
June SO, and the public debt statement
shows a i eduction ol 101,000,000
ujjainst a reduction orlS0,000,000du
riujj the previous year ending June 30,
1883. An examination of the interest
bearing debt -liovs, however, that the
actual reduction during the year has
been nearly. $112,000,000, which repre
sents a permanent annual paving m
theintcre-t account of over $3,250,
000. The one hundred and twenty-eighth
call for 3 per cent, bonds matured yes
terday, and the $10,000,000 thus called
were taken from the column of bond

The gold coin and gold bullion fund
is now nearly $203,000,000, an increase
since .lime 1 of about $3,000,000 ; while
however, this fund shows an increase
of $3,000,000 tor the month, there has
been a decrease in (he amount of gold
owned by the treasury of $1,300,000,
the outstanding gold i-crtiiicutca hav
ing increased since dune 1 $12,000,000.
The amount of these certificates now
outstanding is over $71,000,000, and
the amount of gold in the treasury not
covered by certificate, $I33,7i9;ItH.
The number of silver dollars now
on hand is $13.r),.riG0,,.ll0. an increase of
nearly $3,000,000 for the month, and
since July 1, 1883, of $23,C 10,817.
The amount of silver certificates
outstanding is $9fi,420.0O0, thus leav

covered by certificates over $39,000,

The available c.isji in tlie treasury is
$138,887,139, a falling oil of $8,000,
000 since dune 1.
During the month the National
banks withdrew $0000,000 in 3 per
cent bonds for redemption under the
call, and deposited in their place $4,
000,000 of higher rale bonds. The
amount of bonds now held to secure
National bank circulation is $331,000,
000, against $3.17,000,000 one year ago,
thus showing a withdrawal of bsuik
cireulation for the ywir of about $20,
000,000. " The contraction, however,
in this portion of the circulating
medium is more than compensated for
in the increase of outstanding gold
and silver certificates, during the pat
I wel e months the increase in silver
certificates having been neaily$24,
000,000 and gold certificates over $11,
The total receipts lor the year were
$318,000,000 against $398,000,000 for
llm iircfiwdimr rear. a dillerenre of
$ri0.000,000 in round number.
During the diHU'sion of the tarill'
hill in congiess, it was estimated that
the passage of the revenue bill then
ticiidinir. would work a reduction of
about $70,000,000 per annum. The ao
tual reduction in these two sources as
sliown by figures reported to the
Jlrea-uiry department is a low thousand
"sliort of 10.000,000, the reduction in
customs having been $70,000,000 and
inieinal revenue $23,000,000.
SENATOR PLUMB ON LAND GRANTS
AND THE OKLAHOMA LANDS.
During tiie discussion last l-Yiday iu
the senate, in the eommittc of the
hole,on the bill "to forfeit the unearn
ed lands granted to the Atlantic & l'.i
cilir railroad company to aid in the
construction of a railroad and tele
graph line from the states ol" Jli-oiiri
and Arkansas to the I'aritic roast, and
to icstorc the Kline to K'ttlenient, and
for other purposes,'" Senator Plumb
gave a history oi" the matter, and
-niailuji presentation of very interot
ing facts rclaiing to it. From his
remarks the following is taken:
The railroad company was charter
ed by an act of congress of duly 27,
18CG, for the purpose of building a
railroad from Springfield, liouri,
to the IVHfie ocean. Aside from the
right of way across the public domain
to the extent ot one hundred feet in
width it had a grant of every alter
nnte section ot public land, not mate
rial, designated by odd Humbert-, to
the amount of twentj alternate Mo
tion per mile, on each side of said
railroad line. a said compnny may
adopt, through this territories of the
United States, and ten alternate sec
tions of land per mile on each side
of said tailroad whenever it pastes
through any state, and whenever,
on the line thereof, the Tnited States
have full tillo.not res-en nl, sole.graut
cd, or otherwise appropriated, and
free from pre-emption or other (lainis
or lights, at the time the line of said
rpnil isuUsignntcd by a plat thereof,
tiled iu the oilier of the commissioner
of the general land office.
The line of road from 1,MM) to 1.900
miles, from Springfield to San Francis
co, ha CO miles in Missouri, and about
100 in California, the remaining por
tion of the line being in the Indian
territory and the territories of New
Mexico and Arizona, and on a full
grant thcra would be about 50.000,000
of acres that would be obtained by the
According to the terms of thegrant,
it was reuuired that the said company
shall commence the work on :iiil road
within two jear Iroin the approval of
this act by the president, and shall
complete not less- ih:ui fifty miles per
year after the second year, and shall
construct, equip, furnish, and com
plete the maiu liuc of the whole road
by the JUi day of July. A. 1) , 187f .
2Co portion of the load except that
from Springfield to Vinita, in the In
dian territory, was completed prior to
duly -1. li78, the date named at the
expiration of which the railroad
should lmc been completed to the
Pacific ocean, and at this time, some
1,200 or 1,300 miles ofthc line has not
only been completed, but practically,
the road 1ih not definitely located
over any portion of that line, and no
work of any description Im been done
Tne road designed to have liccn con
structed .substantially upon the -35th
paralkljis now regarded a having San
Francisco an objective point, which is
on the 38th parallel, which would in-
crease the lengthjl50jniles?and which
would but-practically it violation" of
the lei ins of the actf. f- -
The senator, in referring vto tho:act
of congress of April 20, 1871, authoriz
ing the company to mortgage its road,
says : .
It was a consideration of that ques
tion which determined the committee
on public lands of the senate to urge
the consideration ot tins mil a mc
company whose grant should first be
forfeited, if any forfeiture should take
place, because of this seeming right re
served to continue the construction
mid the right to mortgage as long as
the construction should continue un
obstructed by act of congress or other
act on the part of the government
which should amount to n forfeiture.
There arc a number of other con
siderations which enter into this ca-e,
which it is proper for me to mention
at this time, as of importance in de
termining the action of the senate. A
nucstiou has always existed as to
whether the srrant attached to laud in
the Indian territory. The word "ter
litories' is used in" the act, but that
word in its ordinary significance
means the organized territories of the
United States, territories with civil
jurisdiction, territories with courts
and other machinery provided by con
gress, territories which arc in that
preparatory or inceptive state which
leads to the ultimate of states for ad
mission into thcFcderal union
lthtubccii denied always tnai tins
grunt covered tiny land m tne liiiuan
Territory. A condition of things is
now existing in the territory which
makes it to my mind certain that with
in u very sliort period of time some
porlionat least of the land in that
territory will be open to settlement,
and it makes little dillerencn in point
of fact whether action of congre-s de
claring the fact of the opening of these
lauds shall precede settlement or fol
low it, because in the very nature ol i
things, judging by what has taken I
olace continuously upon the fiouticr
for the last forty years, no considera
ble body of land which can he made
subject to the public land laws-of the
United Stales by action of congress
will remain long in a condition not
subject to those laws.
Settlers are, as heretofore the al
ways have been, going out upon the
frontier. They are crowding niton
the arid line. "They are all the time
seeking the good, the valuable, the
agricultural lands of the country. It
has been so long the policy of the gov
ernment to open up lroiu time to
time a- the necessities of thusilualion
seemed to require, such lands as were
subject to its jurisdiction, that it has
come to !-e generally undcrMood that
wherever tlicro is laud which is not
occupied, which the government may
acquire even though it has not acquir
ed, persons seeking homesteads are
privileged to go upon it, and whether
the action of the government opening
it up precedes or follows that settle
ment is a matter of no consequence,
because the action will come in time
to answer all the practical purposes of
tho-e who seek the land.
Senator Plumb believes that the rail
road company did not acquire by rea-
son of this :u:t, unv right in llii; Intliiin : "

He more fully explain by the follm
ing statement :
'i'here is a large body ol land iu Ihu
hull-in territory not occupied b any
tribe and not aiibjuct to the jurisdic
tion of any tribe, land to which the
govcrnine'iit ol' the I'liited States a-. I
believe has title, -ubject, however, to
a conditional u-e which is made the
shield or pretext for withholding it
from .settlement. I do not mean to'
ay tiiat it is iu the power ofthc ev
ecutive to open the land to settlement,
because I do 1101 know that it is true,
but cerlainly it is land which congress
may open to settlement, and more
than that, it is land which cougre-e
will be obliged to open to settlement
within a brief period of time.
They aro lands now being sought
after by men who seek to make homes
upon them, and they are lauds which
will be settled, whether the irovorn
inent takes action or not, within
very brief period of time by men who
want homes, nikI w'Iio, seeing the
lauds open and being mindful
of the policy of the governmeul
heretofore, will go upon them, the
government to the contrary, notwith- j
stnndidg, if that becomes neccs-ar , '
in order that they may occupy them.
Then we shall be brought face U face
with a condition ofithitige which will
require the openings of these, lands to
settlement: am! if ut that time the bur
den of this railroad grant lias not been !

Of": the conflict which will ensue be
tween the railroad company and the
settlers great difficulty wilt occur, nnd
the general government will be called
upon to scttlo the dill'erence between
the settlers who have gone upon ihe
lands and the railroad company.
There is no class of ca-cs, so far as 1
am advised, along the line of the road,
in which interests have grown tip
which require ad?udicatiou except
they niay.be those of the railroad com
pany, nnd as I have stated. I do not
believe the railroad company has any
right to assert against the got em
inent. Therefore there is uo com
plexify which requires indicia', deter
mination. It i, I believe, a plain
question between the railroad com
pany, which has forfeited the grant

mainly due to the masterly advocacy
of Mr. Blaino, and the leaning he then
bliowed towards Irishmen has not
since rehiNed. In the many compari

His friend will probably describe hi in
a the most Morwanr American oi ms
time. The meaning is that he of all
living Americans has the largest ideas
as to the destiny of America, and pos
sesses courage enough to translate
those ideas into fact. For example,
that the Old World has
no business wnaievcr in uiu
New, and he would accordingly,
if he could, make England clear
out of Canada, and for her trade wiili
Cential and Southern America would
substitute that of the great re
