Nkw York, Feh. 3 - Ex-Governor John :
W. Hoyt of Wyoming came to New York j
yesterday from Washington in tlie inter- 1 as
ests of the movement tosend grain to the
starving people of Russia. He was re
quested recently to form a committee
prominent men throughout the country i
which should give direction to the effort*
ue
re- )
of
try j
now being made in a somewhat spas
modic way to relieve the distress among
that country's peasantry. In response to
that request Mr. Hoyt has communicated
with Chauueey M. Depew, George W.
Chillis, the mayors of New York, Phila
delphia, Baltimore apd other large cities,
ana the presidents of the great transpor
tation lines, inviting them to act on tho j,
proposed national committee. He raid |
last night that he anticipated acceptance
from the gentlemen to whom he had
wiitten, and that, the committee would
soon set to work. "My idea," said tbe
ex-governor, "is that the West
should fqrnish the grain, which it has
done already, and the East ought to pro
vide means of trans|»orting it. In that
way every part of the country could have
au opportunity Er doing its share to re
lieve the great distress reported in Rus
sia. Now that congress has failed to
grant the necessary funds, it behooves
our citizens to take steps at once and
charter steamers and raise funds for
other expenses. The Western states
have already placed a sufficient quantity
of grain to load one vessel."
Ex-Governor Hoyt will go to Philadel
phis today to attend a meeting called by
the business men there to inaugurate tbe 1

THE NAVY WANTS A JOB.
What to I>o With Our Battle Ships Is s
Serious Question.
New York, Feb. 3.— What to do with
cur naval vessels now that the Chilian
excitement has died out is, according to
a Washington correspondent, the ques
tion that is agitating Secretary Tracy's
mind. The department will not be in
any hurry to withdraw Acting Rear-Ad
miral Walker's squadron from Monte
video, or the Boston and Yorktown from
tiie South Pacific, hut a redistribution of
the ships and some change in naval
commands may soon be looked for. It
is not unlikely advantage will be taken
of tiie present* of an unusually large
number of vessels in both tbe Pacific and
South Atlantic stations to carry out the
long-contemplated project of dividing
the Pacific station into two separate com
mands, one to be known as the North
Pacific squadron and the other as the
South Pacific. Command of Uie South
Pacific station, in case it is established,
will probably fall upon Rear-Admiral
A
Benham, who to next in order for the
squadron command. He was booked for |
the Bouth Atlantic, but his orders were
cancelled when it was decided to send
Admiral Walker there. The Bouth At
lantic will likely he vacant again pretty
s»x>n, for it is generally understood that
Admiral Walker will be ordered home
and given command of the North Atlan
tic station when Rear-Admiral tiiicrardi's
term expires in the spring Rear-Ad
miral Gherardi's three years' tour ex
piree February 28, but as there is certain
work in connection with the acquisition
of a coaling station in the West Indies
that he desires to complete, he will
probably continue in command until tote
iu the spring. If there are new develop
ments of an unfavorable nature in Chil
ton matters he will lie ordered to return
to the West Indies shortly after his ar
rival at Montevideo, which should be
about the middle of this week.

returned from an extensive tour of in
spection of post* where these new soldier»
are stationed, gives the moat satisfactory
account of the progress these braves am
about the intoxication and disorderly
condition of the Indian troops, Major
Shawan says there ia much leas drunken
ness among the bucks than among the
white aoldters. lie says he Investigated
these reports careiully and found the»
greatly exaggerated. The druukennea»
of a single Indian waa the only founder
tion for the report from Whipple ra*"
racka that the whole troop wae drank and
on the rampage. A careful watch of th»
habits of the Indian soldiers has bee»
kept since the beer privilege waa givem
them at the canteens, and with rare ex
ceptions there has been no abuse of tbafc
privilege among them. On tbe whole,.
the war department is thoroughly satis
fied with the ludian soldiers, and every»
effort will b« made to get the full qaet»
contemplated. Seven hundred end ha,
or about half the number desired, have
been enlisted. Nine companies are tally
organized and two others are about ha»
completed.

The appropriation was not sufficient to -
