the trouble now In the West wns "a
growing belief that (ho sliver wliiir was

Tho resolution was adopted.

llushelrt Dully In Minneintu.
Winona. .Minn., July 19. Professor
Lugger, the state entomologist, has In
operation In tho lied river valley and
in Chicago and Pine counties, lull "hop
per duzois." The hopper dozer is a
machine about eight feet long and two
feet wide. It Is made on tho plan of
a dust pan, Is of tin and sits on three
runners mi which It Is pulled over tho
stubble by a team of horses. At tho
renr of the pan there Is a trough the
entire length of tho machine. In which
there Is tin inferior grade of coal oil,
while at the back of tho machine there
Is a sheet of canvas. The hoppers
jump Into the pan to get out of Its way.
Those that fall Into tho kerosene die at
once, while tho hoppers that are merely
touched by the oil may live two or three
minutes before they succumb to a sort
of paralysis that Is more deadly than
electrocution. The canvas at the buck
of the machine prevents the hoppers
from jumping clear over It. They
strike against tho canvas and fall back
into the oil. It costs the state $1.C0 to
make each of these machines. They can
bo made by any tinsmith, and are given
to tho farmers in hopper Infested com
munities In order to encourage them In
getting rid of tho pest. Professor Lug
ger claims that with his -100 hopper
dozers he kills off an average of S00 to
1,200 bushels of grasshoppers every day,

Topeka, Kas., July 19. The members of
the state sanitary commission are having
trouble among themselves over the recent
appointment by a majority vote of tho
hoard of two Inspectors to watch eattlu
shipments from touth of tho ouarontlno
line. President Johnson had always op
posed this incisure, but he was overruled
by Dean and Brown, who sent Dr. l'rlteh

lon, to tho Southern cattle country with
authority to inako u charge of "J cents a.
heait tor insjieciiou. iiuvuig oeen tuspecuMi
and tagged, the cattle are permitted to go
through to the Missouri river.
Apparently this Is a good arrangement,
but President Johnton charges that tho In
spectors, without performing any duty
themselves simply take the Inspection of
the federal authorities, and Issue certill
eates, for which they charge 2 cents a
head. Notwithstanding his objection, Dean
and Hrown refuse to rescind the order.
Now he has enlisted .Mr. Dean, th federal
Inspector stationed nt Kansas City, In a
movement to get rid of I'rltehard and Free

in ninny years there was a midsummer

ernoon, In the absence of the president.
Seeretsry of Httite Olney npiKtrently ennio
to Washington from Falmouth for the ex
press purpose, for liu nrrlv.-d tills noon,
and will leave tho city Immediately to
Secretary Olney called nt the war de
partment soon after his arrival at tho
state department to talk with Secretary
Liimont. The latter was absent at the
time mid he failed to attend the cabinet
meeting, which was held later, although
an effort was.mndo to summon him by
telephone. Secretary Herbert next re
ceived a visit from the secretary of state,
mid about 1 o'clock the pair walked over
to'thn state deportment and were closeted
In the olllco of Secretary Olney. Hero
they were Joined In the course ot half an
hour by Secretary Carlisle and Attorney
General Harmon, who had boon called by
telephotio Into conference. This lasted
for fully two hours, and from time to
tlmo Assistant Secretary Adee, who has
been acting as secretary of state during
the absence ot Secretary Olney, wns called
Into the room to advise the cabinet as to
somo point under, discussion. Whatever
was the subject considered cannot be
learned, und apparently It was resolved to
keep the proceedings secret, for each of
tho persons present, ns they emerged from
tho olllce declined, courteously but iosl
tlvely.to answer a single question touching
their deliberations. AH that could be gath
ered was to the effect that nothing had
happened at Gray Gables to give rise to
any apprehension. Still then was nn air
of gravity In the demeanor of the cabinet
ollleers as they emerged from tho confer
ence that would Indicate that some
weighty ami Important questions had been
What these may have been can only be
surmised without any tangible evidence
of probability. One theory Is that the
Mora claim was before the cabinet In tho
shape of some proposition from the Span
ish government for Its settlement that per
haps Involve.! the element of long time
and consequently jtiotlllcd some hesitation
before It could be disposed of. An idea
broached was that there was an ugly
question as to tho fulfillment of our neu
trality obligations towards Spain that had
caused the sudden assemblage of the cab
inet ollleers. This had some color from
the fact the particular ollleers gathered
at the state department this afternoon
wero just those who would be charged with
tho execution of the neutrality laws.
In further continuation of this theory. It
was said that the Spanish minister. Senor
Dupuy de Lome, had suddenly arrived In
Washington from Massachusetts, hut a
close search failed to discover his where
abouts and Secretary Olney would not ad
mit that he hud seen him. There aie
those who believe It wns this subject of
neutrality which engaged the most serious
atteiitlun of the cabinet met ling. It Is
known that the cabinet ollleers have been
watching narrowly the proceedings of tho
Cuban sympathizers who have been op
erating in the I'nlturl States.and it is be
lieved the open anil questionable operations
at the New Vork meeting lately, when a
convention went through the forms ot
electing presidents for Cuba, has given rlso
to some doubt on tho part of our govern
ment as to whether this was a proceed
ing that dlil not In Itself constitute at least
In spirit an Infraction of that principle of
tho neutrality laws which forbids the uso
nf he I'nltctl States ns a base of opera
tions against a nation with which tho
Fnlteil States Is on terms of peace. If this
view was taken ot the matter by tint cab
inet meeting to-day it Is likely it will bo
manifested through the Issue of another
presidential proclamation much more
sweeping in Its terms than that already
put forth, warning the residents of this
country against any Infraction ot the neu
trality laws, mid this In turn may be fol
lowed by Instructions to the Judicial olll
eers of the government which will sum
marily check any hostile movements
ng.tlnst thu Spaniards In Cuba from this
country. . .....
Minister DeLome was feen to-night, but
refuse. absolutely to bo interviewed as to
the reasons for his presence her at this
The impression Is very strong to-night
that the cabinet meeting was tor tno pur-noj-e
of discussing the neutrality features
of the Cuban question, ami It Is believed
that some public statement will be nuulo
In regard thereto in a few days.

introduced by the prosecution. They weru
Captain Dalsh. Judge Sims and Mr. Mer

olllclal misconduct against tho accused.
One specllicatlon charged that Commission
er Foster was a betting man. He went up
on the stmid and admitted that tho night
before election ho had bet P on Governor
Luwelllng, which ho lost. 'I ho governor
held that betting might bo an offensu
against hi statutes, but It did not coustl

The governor did not say to, but It is pt oh.
ably tho fact that ho also exonerated .Mr.
Foster from the charge of being a profes.
sloual better on tho ground that no ono

money on Lowelllng.

Topeka, Kas., July 19. --(Special.) The In

Ing some curious old skilctons, which
were laid nway during the bourn days In
Kansas. As an Illustration It has been
discovered that the town of Cimarron,
Gray county, issued ?55,5jt in municipal
bonds during the days when her ambi
tions were hardly outstripped by those of
Chicago, while the records ill the stale
auditor's olllce show that nt her most re
cent assessment the sum total of all prop
erty upon the towusltc was valued at but
M,7. Of the $."."i,r.iHI bonds Issued the per
manent school fund Is owner of $l,nC0,
upon which nil Interest has been defaulted
since lb91. As evidence of what Kansas re
gards as a good Investment It may be
stated that the law forbid" the purehnso
of bonds from municipalities which have
Issued more than in por cent- of their as
sessed valuation. In 1SJ-1, when the bonds
were Issued, the nssessed valuation of
Cimarron was tiSICi, and In ivi, when the
state made Its purchase, the s-sessed vnlu
ntlon was but J Hi it 17. or js "'..! less than

the administration!! to enter Into the

fault for the reason that thrv could hot
win, even If they entered Into the contest,
or, If they could win, It would be at a
great cost of money pie and energy, which
would mote than equal the ndinnlnges
to be gained. It is pioposed to allow the
convention to tin et and pass Its own kind
of resolution, nnd the Dennx rats of the
state are lo be permitted to net without
being Inllueiiced by Wall sired, and Just

Washington, .Inly 19,-(S Inl.) Chief
Harris, of the Cherokee nation, lias asked
tho secretary of the Interior lo appoint
a man to collect rents from Intruders In
tho Cherokee country. Harris claims that
the collection should be made by the gov
ernment because legislation was passed at
tho last session postponing the removal of
the Intruders until after the end of the
present year. The total rent will he about
$l.",0,tiu0. In making the appointment the
Cherokee want a man who Is acceptable
to them, and It Is supposed the secretary
will be able to llnd some one In Georgia to
do the work. The commissioner of Indian
affairs, however, Is of the opinion that the
government Is not compelled to step In
and collect rent for the Cherokee Nation
from anyone, and for this reason be will
not recommend the suggestion. He Hunks
the ChcrokecH ought to be able to collet
their own rents. But the secretary of the
Interior, having discovered a good chance
for one of his Georgia senatorial runners
to the tune of a few dollars has concluded
that It Is a very grave and Important mat
ter and should receive Ihe close attention
of the government. Just how he will go
at It to make It legal he does not know,
but he Is f.iior.tble lo liaxing some lieort,--inri
named to collect the rent. The cam
paign Is now on In tin1 Cherokee Nation
