The Secretary of the Interior In re sponse to the reqnest of Benator Mitch ell has transmitted to the Senate all the raper relating to the claim of Oregon ndians for money in payment of ceded lands in 1866.

Mount Taooma and several thousand acres of land In its vicinity are to be withdrawn from settlement and made a timber reservation, with the ultimate hope that it will be created aa a national park. Senator Bquire has been working on this for some time, and Representa tive Wilson saw Secretary Noble about it recently. An agreement was reached to hav tti withdrawal made.

The Secretary's conclusion is that good service requires that Dr. Eastman shall be enepended from acting a phyaician at Pin Ridge agency, and unless Dr. Eaatman can be assigned or appointed to another place he ia willing to accept within the next fifteen days he most re sign, or he will be removed. The Secre tary finds there is no reasonable ground to find fault with the conduct of acting Agent Brown In thla connection. Commander Henry L. Johnson has been dismissed from the navv.

Such is the vessel to which he was assigned after a suspension for several years for the same offense for which he was dismissed.
