TITE MILITARY ESTAULISAMENT.
The house committee on military affairs
today completed the army appropriation
bill, and the measure will be reported to
the house tomorrow. It makes a total ap
propriation of $23,557,238. The estimates
for the service aggregated $25,523,587, and
the appropriations for the current year
was 215,794,001. The new legislation in
cluded in the bill is intended to limit mile

THE FKEKD.MAN'S HANK.
The speaker laid before the house today
a report from the comptroller of the treas
ury, ex-oflicio commissioner of the Freed
man'& Saving and Trust company, on the
affairs of that institution. The report
shows that on December 4 there was a bal
ance on hand of SS7.719. The comptroller
makes a strong plea in favor of the aump
tion by the government of the liabil
ities of the institution to its deposi
tors. He thinks that $100,000 would be
sufficient to settle all demands likely to be
proved. The comptroller reflects strongly
on the former managers of the institution.
The senate bill providing for the allot
ment of lands iu severalty to Indians was
amended and passed by tho house today.
As amended the bill provide that in .-ill
cases where any tribe of Indians is located
upon an reservation created for its use.
either by treaty stipulation, or by virtue of
an act of comrress or executive order, the
secretary of the interior is authorized when
ever in his opinion any reservation of such
Indians is advantageous for agricultural
and grazing purposes, to caue said reser
vation to be 'surveyed, or reurveved if
necesarv. and to allot the land in said
reservation to the Indians located thereon,
on their application as follows:
To each head of family one-quarter of a
section: to each sincle person over IS years
of age 1-8 of a section; each orphan child
under IS years of aqe l- of a section; to
each person under 18 years of age 1-10 of a
Provided in any case there is not enough
land to each individual of the classes above
named in quantities as above provided the s
lands embraced in such reservation or res
ervations shall be alloted to each individual j
f each of said classes pro rata in accord-1
ance with the provisions of the act. j
It further provides that for the period j
of twenty years the conveyance of any!
such alloted land make the allottees sub-1
jeet to state and territorial laws, and pro
hibits any territory from passing any law ;
denying to any such Indian within its ,
jurisdiction the equal protection of the law. '
The rights and privileges of citizenship
are conferred upon every Indian boy with-;
in the territorial limits o'f the United States
to whom allotments have been made and ,
upon every Indian who has voluntarily
taken up his residence and adopted civili- i
The nrovisions of the bill do not extend '
to the territory occupied by the Cherokecs,
Creeks, Chickasaws, bemmoles and Usages,
Mininis and Peorias, Sacs and Foxes in the
Indian Territory: nor to any of the reser
vations of the JTew York Indians in the
state of New York; nor to that strip of ter
ritor' in the state of Nebraska adjoining
the Sioux nation of the south; nor does the
bill authorize the abolishment of any res
ervation until the per cent of the majority
of the male members 21 years of age shall
first be obtained.
A SUFFICIENT ANSWER.
An order will shortly be issued by the
president adding southern California to the
department of Arizona under command of
Gen. Nelson A. Miles, and removing his
headquarters from Prescott, Arz.,toLos
Angle-, California. This will give Gen.
Miles the command ofsthe whole Mexican
frontier from Texas to the Pacific The
territorial extension of the limits of his
command is said by Gen. Miles' friends to
be sufficient answer to the charge which
was made that he disobeyed orders in the

bills introduced and referred were the

Mr. YaaWyck called up his resolution

The calendar was then taken up under
the rule that as objection is .sufficient to
have the bill laid aside. A bill granting a
pension to Mr?. Barbara Fusch, (the step
mother of a soldier) was opposed by Mr.
Cockrell as establishig a new principle,
and was defended by Messrs. Edmunds,
Blair and Piatt. The bill was passed, and
a motion to reconsider was rejected ve&s
8, nays 30.
Mr. Beck, alluding to his remarks yester
day as to the judiciary committee having
acted in bad faith, disclaimed any inten
tion of being offensive and claimed that as
they were so construed he retracted them.
Mr. Pugh said he certainly had construed
Mr. Beck's lemarks as personally offensive,
but his statement was now entirely satis

special order lor the second Tuesday in

and purchasers of laud? in Nebraska and
Kansas adjoining the Denver fc St. Joe

ture of a personal explanation in regard to
his ownership of a portion of the lands
concerned, and said that if the senate could
do ample justice to those settlers who had
trusted implicitly to the good faith and
honor of the government, while excluding
any claim that he had, he should not only
advise that course but should chccrfully
cnnscnl to such determination. The mo

The senate then took up the bill to repeal
the tenure of office act. Mr. Edmunds ad
dressed tho senate in opposition to the bills.
This would bo an invitation to the execu
tive to remove ever' official who did not
agree with the reigning party, and would
be a long step backward.
Mr. George argued for the bill.
Mr. Roberts also said he would vote for
the bill as a measure of expediency; without
it the senate might retain in office an
official inimical to the executive.
The senate then went t into excutive

The Condition of the Stock Market
Not so Taut as Wednesday.
New York, Dec. 1G. Stocks opened
with a better feeling, the general lists
showing gains over last night'a closing.
The market weakened, however, in a few
10 a. m. Advances at the opening this
morning over last evening's closing quota
tions ranged up to 1 1-2. The advantage
was not maintained and in most cases was

losing 2. Reading 1 1-2, Canada Southern

prices soon gave way again.
2:15 p. m. The stock market after 12
continued to decline but a short time, when
a rally was inaugurated, which gained

as an accompaniment. New England and

participated in the improvement which
continued to the end, the market closing
strong at or near the best figures of the

change in the appearance of the stock
market from that of yesterday, the extra
ordinary activity disappearing and the
wild desirejto sell giving way to at least an
appearance of renewed confidence which
increased as the day advanced. One fac
tor in producing this result was the increas
ing use of money, the high prices being
looked upon as the result of manipulation.

The Wabash Receiver.
Chicago, Dec. 1G. Judge Grcsham in
the United States circuit court this after
noon appointed Judge Cooley, of Michi
gan, to be receiver of "the Wabash railway
m accordance with his recent decision.
Judge Thomas Cooley is a resid.-n: of
Ann Arbor, Mich., aud an ex-member of
the supreme court of that state.
The appointment of Judge Cooley to be
receiver to succeed Solan Humphreys and
Thomas E. Tutt, was determined upon by
Judge Grcsham after a short hearing m
which it was disclosed that contending in
terests had been unable to agree upon any
one person for receiver. Before appoint
ing the receiver Judge Grcsham was asked
by Gen. Wager Swains, counsel for the de
posed receivers, time for the purpose of
makinga few suggestions. He proposed
that the purchasing committee be allowed
to pay all receiver's certificates
except those not on current accounts cov
ered by the mortgage of 1S67. lie would,
he said, make a motion for an order that
upon condition of payment of all receiver's
certificates as far as due, to secure the re
mainder as they mature, and to pay all in
debtedness not covered by the mortgage of

Judge Grcsham stopped the controversy
bv saving the court already held tlmt tho
present receivers should not be continued

he said, I don't think anything could lve
gained by prolonging the matter. I will
then appoint Judge Cooley, of Michigan.
A Siientilie Sinner.
Washington, Dec. 1G. A swindler who
is apparently a man of some abilty, has
been preying upon the people in various
parts of the country by representing him
self as a scientist connected with geological
surveys, and his career has now been con
tinued with a good degree of success for
about four years, lie takes the names one
after another of the chiefs of the several
scientific branches and borrows books and
specimens from library and college mus
eums, and money from professors and li
brarians. He has examined alleged coal,
iron and copper mines and received money
for making favorable leports which he
promises should appear in the an
nual publications of the sur
vey. More than once he has prom
ised specimens in the survey to . persons
who have paid him liberally for the favor.
In a dozen place he has arranged to deliver
lectures upon c leuhhc subjects and lias
decamped after making as man' ducats as
possible, lie seems to have a lair com
mand of geological and pathological in
formation and to be a plausible ami enter
taining talker upon a variety of subjects.
Recently he has been operating under the
title of 'Captain Clarence Duttont whose
name as a geologist and writer is well
known. Manager Powell says the survey
ha s heard from thoe swindles as often as
once a month for four yean?, and he thinks
it is time that steps were taken to put an
end to his career.

Texukana, Tex., Dec. 10. James
Howard, aged & year.i, was taken from
the jail here at midnight last night by a
masked mobjby whom he was carried a short
distance below' the town and hanged to a
railroad trestle. He maltreated his wife
who is i-carccly 14 years old. Howard and
his wife were married last July. Mrs.
Howard says he frequently tied her
feet together while she was in a
btate of nudity and hanging
her up by the feet, beat her unmercifully
and threatened to kill h-r if she told any
one. On the first of November Howard
took a common branding iron used to
brand livestock, and licating it red hot
branded a large letter "H" on his wife's
person in two places while she was tied to
a l)cd, and after suffering several weeks
from the effects of these burns, she told the
story as stated.

The letter was one which Lady Colin had
written when she was ten j curs of age and
was a childuh affair. Witne. pmluctd
the letter. Witness never win at How con

When Ladv Mile- told wUii6 tlmt Lord
