Territorial act especially declares that
these, offices shall be filled only by

nel Macfarlane brought with him $325,-000
in 26 boxes from the
Bank of San Francisco. This is
the first installment of $750,000 to pay

said the colonel. will not be redeemed
until the next session of Congress. The
Seligmans were willing to take the
bonds, but owing to the rush in Congress
during the last days of the session

Gage was not authorized to. negotiate
with theJSeligmans for the redemption
of the .bonds:
