NATIONAL CAPITAL. Reciprocity Will Be a Great Bene fit to This Country. THE SOUTH AND WEST DEMAND FREE COINAGE. The Special "World's Fair Commission ers to tho Latin-American Repub lics Receive Their Credentials- Charges Made That Lobbyists Arc at "Work in the Interest of the Sub sidy Shipping Bill. Special to the Record-Union. Washington, Jan. 18.—Hon. John W. Foster, who has represented this Govern ment as Minister to Mexico, and also to Spain, is naturally well informed in re gard to the interests of the United States, both at home and abroad. Foster was asked what he thought was likely to be the practical result of the reciprocity provision, known as the Aldrich amendment. He replied that he had very little doubt that its effect would be very beneficial in the enlargement of our foreign commerce on this hemisphere. It offers such great advantages to the sugar and coffee pro ducing countries, that they cannot fail to avail themselves of the privileges of this largest and best market of the world for the products. "If the emergency arises, will the Pres ident reinipose the duty on sugar and coffee, named in the Aldrich amend ment?" '"There is not the slightest doubt about it," answered Foster. "The President's duty is made imperative under the law. Congress has made a most liberal offer of reciprocity of trade, and if any ration concerned does not accept it as to that nation there is no other alternative than to impose the duty prescribed by Con gress?" T!iis reciprocity provison factor is re garded as the most popular and com 11 i-i i liable feature of the new Tariff Act, and in its practical operation is most likely to give general satisfaction. It is free from the constitutional objection whicli has been urged against reciprocity by means of treaties. It is simple in its operation, as it is brought about by re sponsible legislation. It is binding upon the nations concerned only so long as dictated by their mutual interests. It is a policy which he believed wonld go for to reconcile the conflict in this coun try between protection and free trade, whicli would be favorably received by our neighbors, and would prove to be the most beneficial outcome of the Inter national American Conference. Foster said that the shipping bill now pending in the House was plainly neces sary as a part of this great reciprocity programme, and with its passage we would be placed in a most advantageous position to establish and maintain com mercial supremacy on this hemisphere. Without the aid of the proposed Ameri can shipping bill we can never compete with tiie subsidized shipping of other -"•••ions, and whatever reciprocity of trade ft -|y be established under the pro-visions of the McKinley tariff will then have to be conducted in foreign ships. Our ship ping is now the only great industrial in terest which is not protected by legisla tion. The bill referred to is in entire harmony with the protective system, and is absolutely necessary to the proper en forcement of reciprocity of trade, as our commerce with our neighbors should be carried on under the American flag. FREE COINAGE. The South and Most United In Its Favor. Washington, Jan. IS.—Senator Daniel, of Virginia, said to a California Asso ciated Press correspondent: "The one issue on which the South and West will unito on which there is little, if any, dilference of opinion, is on free coinage. Tho South is almost united for free coin age, and so is the West. Silver has ever been the money of tho people, and while tile people demand silver for their cur rency, we should comply with lhat de mand. Since the rascally trick of de monetizing silver in 187VJ the issue of free coinage has slowly but surely crowded its way to the front, and if the free coinage bill does not become a law during Ihis Congress yon may expect to see il became one of the leading issues in the Presidential campaign. In my judg ment on the issues of silver you would witness the South and West getting to gether for the benefit of a common in terest. The vote in the South on free coinage shows an almost unanimous South and West against a solid East. The vote was significant, and it docs not re quire a keen vision to see the current of the political wind. LOSS TO THE TOOR PEOPLE. NEW York, Jan. IS.—Ex-Comptroller of the Currency Trenholm, in discussing the free coinage bill, says: "There are nearly a thousand savings banks in tho United States, and they owe their deposi , fens over fifteen hundred million dollars, representing that much in gold value • saved by the poor people out of their earnings. Here is debt that should be held sacred by Congress, yet, under tlie proposed bill, these institutions can settle with their depositors in silver, and this will probably be effected at a loss to de positors of 20 per cent iv their deposits, about three hundred million in the aggre gate." PO NOT FAVOR FREE COINAGE. Boston, Jan. IS. —The newly-organized Republican Club of Massachusetts lias Called a meeting in Faneuil Hall Tuesday next to protest against Vest's free coin age bill. Party lines have been ignored, and invitations to take part in the meet ing have been sent to every business or ganization in Boston. THE SUBSIDY BILL. Charges Made That Lobbyists Are Workincr for Its Passage. Washington, Jan. IS. —Representative Wheeler of Alabama said to your corre spondent to-night: "It looks now as if the subsidy bill will go through, but it may be that at the hist moment those who are so active in advocating its meas ures will have little regard for public opinion, and in that eveut the Treasury will not be despoiled. I doubt if anyone can tell exactly how many millions it would take to carry the bills into effect. "The jiapc-rs of the country denounce the subsidy bills as a mammoth steal, and charge in so many words that a powerful lobby is swarming around the corridors of the Capitol working like beavers in the interest of tile bills. I hear il said that tlie days of the Pacific Mail jobbery are being re-enacted here again in these sub sidy bi lis. "You know, an investigation of Pacific Mail subsidy resulted in the purifying of legislation, and for a time the lobby kept very dark. Now, if there is no lobby be hind these subsidy bills, and no barrel on tap, as is aliegod, why does not some one ask for an investigation ? I have heard some little talk of a resolution of inquiry that is to be introduced, but I have not seen a cony of it. I agree with Mills, and believ<*that an investigation will fol low the passage of the subsidy bills.". i THE RECORD-UNION. The talk of a powerful lobby being at work here in the interest ot the Pacific Mail is heard on all sides, yet these lob byists do not seem to materialize. There is only one individual here who has oven been pointed out as a Pacific Mail lobby ist, and he, as a member of the company, is, naturally enough, much interested in the fate of the subsidy bill. This gentle mania pointed out wherever he goes as the "Pacific. Mail lobbyist," and he has been magnified, like Falstaff's men iv Buckram, by quid mines and tlie busy bodies, until he has become a powerful lobby, composed of ex-members of Con gress and Pacific Coast steamship men. COLUMISUX EXPOSITION. Tho Special Commissioners Ready to Depart on Their .Missions. Washington, Jan. IS.—The army and navy officers who have been detailed as special Commissioners to carry an invita tion from the Government of the United States to the other American republics and the West Indian colonies to partici pate in the Columbian Exposition, and to use every endeavor to secure a proper understanding of the alfair in the various countries, have received their letters of credence and instructio:-* from the De partment of State, and will start on their mission at once. Their instructions are very comprehensive; and, if carried out, will make the Latin-American depart ment one of the greatest features of the exposition. The Commissioners not only represent the Department of State, but 'the Smith sonian Institution, the Agricultural De partment, the National Museum, Medical Museum, Fisheries Commission, and other branches ofthe Government also, and have detailed instructions from each. All the American steamship companies, and several lines carrying the English dag,have agreed to carry the Commis sioners and their collections free of cost, and advices already received indicate that they will have the hearty co-operation of the several < Jovernments to which they are accredited. BEFORE CONGRESS. Probable Programme* for the Present Week. Washington, Jan. 18.—The election bill comes up in the Senate to-morrow again as unfinished business. The course of business will depend altogether, it is felt, upon the attendance. If the ex pected Republican quorum is present, the next move will be to consider the Aldrich closure resolution, for the man agers of tho bill believe the time is at hand when the last doubt as to the effi cacy of the old method of "sitting out" must have been removed. The efforts to lay aside the elections bill will doubtless be renewed, but should they fail the clo sure promises to be a feature of the pro ceedings of the Senate during the week. The proceedings in the House during tho week will be governed by the prog ress of the Senate with the elections bill, thepurpose Ofthe Democrats manifestly being a delay of business as long as the measure remains pending in the Senate. The principal interest is centered in the proceedings of the House Committee, to which the free coinage silver bill has been referred. The fate of the bill de pends largely upon its action, as tho committe practically has power to shelve it, and thus render action by the House almost, if not quite, impossible. For this reason thi! proceedings of the committee will be followed with liveliest interest. "Washington Notes. Washington, Jan. 18.—Henry B. Jar vis, of Umatilla County, Oregon, has been allowed $1,004 for depredations commit ted byßannack Indians in 1878. John li. Chun, of California, has given up his position in tho War Department. Thomas E. Byrnes, of San Mateo, and Albert R. Shiveley, of Lewis, California, have been commissioned postmasters. T. B. Mercer, of Nevada, has been ap pointed paymaster yeoman aboard of the United States steamship Newark. Senator Stewart has telegraphed to Nevada parlies asking them to recom mend some one for the position of Regis ter ofthe Land ( Hlice at Carson City, Ne vada, which place will bo vacant soon. United States Marine Hospital. Washington, Jan. IS. —The annual re port of Supervising Surgeon-General Hamilton of the Marino Hospital service, shows that during the past year in the United States Marine Hospital and branches .00,071 sailors were treated. As an index to the nativity of the sailors on American registered vessels, it is stated that but (>,'»lo of this number wore born in the United States. Investigation in regard to yellow fever, small-pox and la grippe are treated at length. The Surgeon-General recommends a new hospital at Sitka, Alaska. • Froo Coinage Bill. Washington, Jan. 18.—Tho Post to day asserts emphatically that the Presi dent will veto the free coinage bill should it pass the House, no matter if tho elec tions bill is defeated or not. It also says that Sneaker Read will make every en deavor to thwart the silver men in their attempts to get the bill before the House. FATAL GAS EXPLOSION. AN Omo HOTEL COMPLETELY WItECKED. Two Girls Killed and Several Other Employes Are Severely Wounded. Special to the Rt-.cortvUniox. Fi.vni.AY (Ohio), Jan. IS.—Tho first great disaster that Findlay has over ex perienced from tho use of natural gas oe curmUshortly before 2 o'clock this after noon, while the guests of tho HotellMar vin were waiting to be summoned to dinner. This morning it was discovered that gas was escaping from some leaking pipe somewhere into the dining-room, and Mr. Marvin, the owner of the building, with three plumbers, spent the entire forenoon trying to locate the leak. About 10 o'clock they entered tho dining room, and found such an accumulation of gas that they conld not breathe, and it was suggested that a hole be sawed throngh the Boor into the dining-room, in order to oht.'iin fresh air. This was done, and just as the hole was made one of the dining-room girls, who was sweeping the floor, stepped upon a match! and in an instant an explosion occurred, which not only wrecked the building, but killed two girls and maimed and injured a dozen other employes. The force of the explosion was so great that it blew out the flame of ignited gas, and no fire followed the awful ruin which the shock caused. The whole city rocked as if in an earthquake, and all the win dows on the square were demolished. Had the explosion occurred ten minutes later the loss of life would have been frightful, as nearly a hundred people were waiting to be called to dinner. When the rescuing party ltegan work in the debris the body of Katy Walters, a dining-room girl, was found badly crush; 1,!. Ella Johnson, another waitress, *ma found alive under a mass of brick and mortar, but died in a short tune. Kate Kooney, a waitress; Anson Marvin, owner ol the building, and Frank An drews, were fatally injured. Frank Poundstone, clork. aiid Charles Graves, Phillip Weil and Jack ("ahill wero paiu fuily bruised and cut, but will recover. The pecuniary loss amounts to §35,000. SACRAMENTO, MONDAY MORNING, JANUARY 19, 1891. BEYOND THE ROCKIES. An Awful Tragedy at Chatta nooga, Tennessee. STARTLING CONFESSION OP A NEGRO MURDERER Tlio British Government Says tlio Ap peal to the Supremo Court In tho Behring Sea Controversy Was not Meant as an Act of Discourtesy To ward tho President or Stato Dcpai't mcut—Tho Coinage BUI. Special to the Record-Union. Chattanooga (Term.), Jan. 18.—An awlul tragedy occurred hero to-day, S. M. Fugette, Cashier of tho South -Chatta nooga Savings Bank, being shot and killed by his father-in-law, J. A. Warder, City Attorney of Chattanooga. Warder is probably fatally injured, and Mrs. Fu gette lias a dangerous wound in her right thigh. Judge Warder came home at 1 o'clock in a drunken condition, and went to Mr. and Mrs. Fugette's room, where the tragedy occurred. E.\ how it hap pened is not yet known, „s Warder and aMrs. Fugette are not able to talk. The neighbors, hearing shooting, rushed in and found Fugette dead, with a bullet through his heart,and Mrs. Fugette lying on the floor, while Warder was staggering down stairs with blood streaming from a wound in his breast. Judge Warder is one of the best-known lawyers in the State, and during Presi dent Hayes'Administration was United States District Attorney for the middle district of Tennessee. The opinion prevails that he abused his daughter while drunk and the shooting resulted. BEHRING SEA. Tho Appeal to tho Supremo Court Not an Act of Discourtesy. New York, Jan. 18.—A London spe cial says : Rumors aro alloat of a some what forcible remonstrance having been addressed by Blame to Lord Salisbury .on account of proceedings being takes to the Supreme Court. Nothing hocus to be known about it in oflicial circles. If such a dispatch has been received, Lord Salisbury is keeping it to himself until Tuesday next, when there will be a Cabinet meeting to arrange the course of business for Parliament. "The Government is In a position, I understand, to dispose quickly of any charge brought against it of a desire to steal a march on the United States in the Behring Sea negotia tions, or of treating the Secretary of State with discourtesy. Those who are ac quainted with the facts are confident that when the people ou both sides of the At lantic hear the truth they will see that the British Ministry could not have acted otherwise than it has done. It will be denied altogether that Salisbury suggested the application to the Supreme Court. Tho proceedings were taken on I lie responsibility and initiative of Can ada, the ministry here concurring, and did not imagine for a moment that the United States Court would place an of fensive construction upon them. "It is maintained that an appeal to the highest American court for a settlement ofthe points of law involved in the inter national dispute shows the utmost con dence in that court, and therefore cannot reasonably be regarded as an act of dis courtesy toward the President. The question will no doubt be brought before Parliament as soon as the papers are laid on the table." captain Terry's opinion on the sub ject. Washington, Jan. 18.—Captain G. R. Ferry, whose vessel was captured in Behriug Sea, and which affair was made the basis for the suit in the United States Supreme Court by the British Govern ment, is in Washington. Captain Ferry left Victoria, B. C, a week ago last Monday, in response to a telegram from the British Minister here saying that his presence was needed in Washington. A few hours after his arri val counsel for the British Government were making a motion in the Supremo Court. If the Attorney-General had sug gested that it was necessary that the (lap tain of tho vessel should be present, Cap tain Ferry would have been produced with dramatic celerity. As he was not called, the British Consul did not make his pres ence known. Ho has kept himself se cluded in the Ebbitt House ever since. He will not go home until it is certain that his attendance here is no longer nec essary. To a Post reporter Captain Ferry dif fered emphatically from the Treasury agents' and the State Department's posi tion in the alleged decrease in the num ber of seals. He says that instead of de creasing they are "increasing. He saw more seals last summer than he had ever seen before in the Northern Pacific Ocean and Behring Sea. He also makes another very interesting statement. He says that the seals, re turning to the rookeries, arc, in the case of the females, laden with young. If these female seals are allowed to enter Behring Sea and deliver their young the perpetuation of race is assured." If, how ever, the United States forbids the killing of seals in Behring Sea, the sealing ves sels would simply take their position at tho outer entrance to the sea, by the Aleutian Islands, and kill tho animals, thus destroying the young and old to gether. In other words, to kill seals in the North Pacific Ocean, where there is no possible question of restriction, means tho destruction of the species, while the killing of seals in Behring Sea, after the period of maternity has passed, means perpetuation of the species. Captain Ferry says that tho seals are found in schools of about thirty, and only two, or rarely three, can be killed before the rest escape. At this rate, he says, the seals can never be exterminated. SENSATIONAL MURDER CASE. How a Woman Got Rid of nor Wealthy Husband. Lincoln (Neb.), Jan. 18—There have been three arrests in the past twenty-four hours in connection with the murder of John Sheedy on Monday. McFarland, a colored barber, was the first suspect, and he to-day made a confession acknowl edging the killing and implicating the wife of the murdered man and her sup posed lover. All are in jail. McFarland declares that Mrs. Sheedy agreed to fjay him $15,000 to make away with her hus band. Developments of a sensational na ture are expected. Sheedy was an old resident, and quite wealthy. Mrs. Sheedy left her former husband, a poor carpenter, to marry Sheedy. He was old enough to be her father. Pre*- emly slie became infatuated with one Harry Walstrom, and McFarland asserts that she employed him to rid her of her husband. He also says that Mrs. Shecdv poisoned her husband after he struck him down with a loaded cane, so as to make sure of his death. Sheedy was a brother of Dennis Sheedy, President of the Colorado National Dunk of Denver, and a cousin of Pat Sheedy, the noted Chicago sporting man. INDIAN NATION. A Meeting of the Squaw Men ofthe Chickasaw Tribe. Gainesville (Tex.), Jan. 18.—At a meeting ot the squaw men of the Chicka saw Nation, for tho allottment of tribal lands in severalty and statehood move ments for the Indian Nation, the conven tion indorsed Governor Boyd's policy, and promised to aid him in expelling in truders from the nation. They urged that the editors of the leading papers favoring the allottment and statehood movement be exiled. The convention was presided over by Frank Murray, an adopted citizen, who own (5,000 acres of tribal lands, with 11,000 tenants. ('overnor Boyd lias appointed Judge Love to go to Washington and endeavor to induce the Secretary ol the Interior to have all non-citizens in the Chickasaw territory, who refuse to pay the exile permit tax to the tribal government, ex ileiVoni the Indian Nation. There are 30,000 such non-citizens in the country, and they are uneasy, fearing that the United States Government may accede to tho demand for their expulsion. RING TALK. ' Sullivan "Wants siavin to Stand Before Him Six Rounds. Chicago, Jan. 18.—John L. Sullivan says that Wakely and Lynch, who ar rived from Now Orleans yesterday, laid before him a proposal to light Siavin. Tho proposal, he understands, comes from Slavin's friends in New Orleans. Sullivan's reply is that he willgive Siavin 52,;300, or *?5,000 if ho prefers it, if ho will show that he can stand before him (Sulli van) six rounds, with five-ounce gloves. Sullivan will meet him at any place as soon as the present engagement will per mit. Ho will tight no more bare fist fights, a.s he doesn't wish "to run up against the law again." Sullivan says Corbett, Kilrain and Siavin are all calling themselves cham pion. What ho wants them to do is to settle the matter among themselves, and then lie will fight tho winner. James J. Corbett of San Francisco met Sullivan for the first time to-day, and ex pressed great admiration for him. When asked if he would fight him Corbett said, why should ho, adding that there aro a number of men to whip before he thinks of the world's championshio honors. "If Siavin wants to light," said Corbett, "why don't he light me? lam convinced that ho is a blowhard, who is talking principally because he knows Sullivan's hands are at present tied. If I am suc cessful in my coming meeting with Peter Jackson, I snail go to England and make him light, or expose him as a duller." Sullivan, when asked what about Jack son, said: "Oh, I don't consider him. He is out of it, as far as I am concerned." Ex-Governor Thayor 111.3 Lincoln (Neb.) Jan. 18.—The long vigil of ex-Governor Thayer during the excit ing scenes of the opening of the Legisla ture, when ho remained iv his apartments eighty hours for the purpose of keeping out GOvertor Boyd, has resulted in a dangerous attack of nervous prostration. To-night the ex-Governor is a raving maniac, and his physicians say his con dition is alarming, owing to his age. He is 7,j years old. Late to-night tho ex-Governor's friends deny that his condition is <*■•> serious, and say that ho will be about as usual withki a week. South Dakota Senatorshlp. Minneapolis, Jan. 18.—A special to tho Tribune from Pierre, S. 1)., says: Tho Republicans at their caucus hist night were unable to agree unanimously on a candidate for Senator. It was learned that five will refuse to support Moody under any cireumstances. Death of a Journalist. New York, Jan. 18.—Charles Tabor Congdott, author and journalist, died to day.

IS.—Tho principal portion of the business part or the city wiis destroyed by firothis morning. -The losses will aggregate j£!00,000; well in sured. His Accounts Short. Waco (Texas), Jan. 18.— S. J. Mings, cx-I'resident of tho National Bank of <'atisville, has disappeared. His ac counts are several thousand short. UNIQUE SURGICAL OPERATION. HEROIC SELF-SACRIFICE FOR A BROTHER MASON. Flesh Transplanted From tho Bodies of a Hundred Men to Save Another. i Special to the Recohd-Uitton. Chicago, Jan. 18.—Ono of the most unique surgical operations on record was performed in this city to-day, and 132 Knights Templar gave to the world a notable example of tho fraternal love and heroic self-sacrifice in order that a sick brother might bo restored to health. Each suffered the loss of a piece of the cuticle which was transferred to Sir Knight John Dickerson. A cancer which had attacked his thigh was removed some time ago, but so deep and wide an incision had to be made in the flesh that nature was unequal to the task of healing over the gaping wound. An experiment was tried of engrafting the skin of some of the lower animals but it failed. The surgeon in charge an nounced to Dickerson's anxious brethren that if human skin could be obtained it would in all probability save the pa tient's life, and insure his complete re covery. The question was whore to obtain suffi cient skin to cover the ono hundred and forty-four square inches of surface. Tho matter was broached in the Commandery, and to a man the Knights offered to sub mit themselves to the necessary opera tion. This was performed to-day at the Emergency Hospital. Nearly one hun dred Knights had each a small strip of skin removed from the arm or leg to lie transplanted to Dickerson's hip. No representatives of the press were allowed to bo present, but it has been learned that nearly all of the Knights went through tho operation unflinchingly. Two fainted, but were quickly resuscitated. Several others anxiously inquired for cold water at different stages of the operation. Only about two minutes were consumed with each man, iri which time the skin was re moved, his wound dressed and the piece placed on Dickerson. While the surgeons will make no posi tive statement as to the result of the operation, it is evidently their opinion that it will be entirely successful. The Knights who offered themselves up to tho surgeons' knives will experi ence but little inconvenience from the ' slight wounds inflcted upon them. .» Two Boys Drowned. KnoNEUYiiaLE, Jan. 18.—While fishing this afternoon two lx>ys of J. M. Freed enbach, aged 4 and 17 years, were drowned in Eel river.

San Francisco, Jan. 18.—Another of the series of games ofthe Players' Winter League, an organization composed mostly of local and Eastern ball-players now in this city, was played this afternoon at Central Park. The clubs were known as the San Franeiscos and Oaklands. The teams were about evenly matched, and played a rather closely contested game.

San Francisco, Jan. 18.—The members of the Manufacturers' and Machinists' Association were very reticent yesterday when questioned in reference to the with drawal of Steiger&Kerrof the Occidental Foundry from that organization. The proprietors of the foundries say they are still determined to fight the striking molders and core-makers to the bitter end. cost what it may, and that the break in their ranks caused by the withdrawal of one foundry will have very little bear ing on the matter. The strikers, however, are more con fident than ever that the long-standing controversy will soon terminate in a complete victory for them. It was learned last night that five non-union moldcVs were removed from the Occi dental Foundry, and will be shipped back East to-day. This will leave that shop without any molders and core makers, and when it opens up this week —probably on Tuesday—it will be with a complete crew of union men. President Valentine of the Molders' Union said last night that the Occidental would hereafter be conducted exclusively under union rules, so far as the molders and core-makers are concerned. TIIE ZEALANDIA WON. Ocean Steamship Race Between Syd ney and San Francisco. San Francisco, Jan. 18.—The ocean race between tho Oceanic Steamship Company's steamer, Zealandia, and the Union Steamship Company's steamer, Monowai, from Sydney to San Francisco, resulted in a victory for the Zealandia by twenty-four hours. The Zealandia started one hour later than the Monowai, but soon passed her. The Monowai arrived this morning, twenty-five days from Sydney, bringing seventy-two cabin and thirty-five steerage passengers. Her captain reports considerable delay from defective air-pumps. She carries the Australian and New Zealand mails for this country and Europe, and as the steamers represent opposition lines, con siderable interest was attached to the race. Escaped Prisoners Captured. Tacoma, Jan. 18.—Three prisoners who escaped from the United States Peniten tiary, on McNeill's Island, were captured this morning. Although they escaped on Friday night, they had not succeeded., in getting away from the island. mmmm^mmsssi Shippee Probably Elected. Chico, Jan. 18.—In the Senatorial ! conteat in the Fourth District yesterday i the Republican County Central Commit- tee reports all important precincts heard from, giving Shippee 430 majority over Jones.

San Jose, Jan. 18.—All arrangements have been made for the execution of James Eubanks to-morrow. To-day at least 2,000 men, women and children filed through tho jail yard to see the gallows.

ALASKA FISHERIES. Protest Against Morrow's Bill to Lease oi" i'opoff Island. Washington, Jan. 18. — Tho Mc- Collum Fishing and Trading Company, of San Francisco, sends to Congressman Clunie an emphatic protest against Mor row's bill, introduced by request, to lease the Popolf islands, one of the Alaskan groups, to the firm of Lynde &, Hough, of San Francisco. They say that since the acquiring of cer tain improvements and possessory rights from the natives for a valuable considera tion, they have established a eodfishing station and erected several new buildings. Their business has assumed extensive proportions, and a large capital is in vested. Their actual expenditures for permanent improvements aud in the prosecution of the regular business at Pirate Cove during the past fifteen years have exceeded $150,000, and, under the circumstances, they consider it a piece of presumption and unmitigated assurance on the part of Lyndo tfc Hough to ask for a lease of this island. They say that the whole scheme of leasing the island will not hear investigation. About eight miles distant from Pirate Cove, on Popoff Island, Lynde it Hough in 1868 established a trading station at Sand Point, which has several years been the rendezvous of poaching Victoria seal ing schooners before and after entering Behring Sea, and it is currently reported that an extensive smuggling business is carried on in landing intoxicating liquors, and in the transhipment of sealskins from their vessels to Victoria and San Fran cisco. AT PINE RIDGE. TIIE IIOSTILES CONTINUE TO TURN OVER THEIR ARMS. Secretary Nohie Says the Indians Re ceiving Government Bounty Must Work. Special to the Record-Union. Pine Ridge Agency, Jan. 18.—More guns were turned in to Agent Pierce to-day by the hostiles. They told him that a systematic search is beinjf made in the tepees, and that all weapons found would be turned over. The custodian said to-day that five hun dred guns had been surrendered, and at headquarters it is claimed that the arms turned over exceed in number those re ceived in any other campaign. Last night several shots were fired in the hostile camp, but nobody was hurt. To-day the Indians were gloomy and sul len. The frieudlies informed your corre spondent that a number of troublesome young men still have bad hearts and cannot be converted. General Miles is meeting with some opposition in liis plan of segregating the several Indian tribes. Notwithstanding tho Cheyennes had started to Tongue river, the tribe is still detained outside the breast-works await ing a commission from tho Interior De partment to move. General Miles pro poses to send back to the respective agencies all Indians not belonging to this place. Another council was held to-day, but nothing important transpired. General Miles to-night issued a congratulatory address to the soldiers, with a review of the campaign. General Miles will probably lcavo for the East early next week, and General Brooke has resumed command of the forces in the field. This afternoon the wife of Few Tails arrived here, badly wounded, having been a victim of white men's malice. Four weeks ago she, with her husband and several other Indians, left the agency with a pass from General Brooke, to hunt for eagle feathers. When near Bear Butte they were set upon by some white men. Few Tails was killed and his wife badly wounded. Others of the party scattered and have not been heard from since. For nino days past the woman has been walk ing to the agency, covering the distance of 150 miles. She reached the camp of the Sixth Cavalry this morning, aud was brought to the hospital. THE INDIANS MUST WORK. Washington, Jan. 18.—The Post says that Secretary Noble, talking of the policy to be pursued with the Indians hereafter, said that first of all they should be de prived of their firearms. An intellect that could master the intricacies of a Winchester rifle was quite capable of ap preciating the noble simplicity of the plow, and he proposed to give the hostile Sioux an opportunity as well as tlie in centive, to earn iheir own living. Out of the 24-1,000 Indians in the United States over two-thirds are earning their own living. The Secretary is decidedly in favor of making these Indians who depend on Government bounty work for their liv ing, just the same as the white people do. They should bo treated with perfect fair ness and justice, but work should enter into any policy or scheme for their col onization. ♦ CLEARING-HOUSE RETURNS. Rnsiness Transacted During the Past Week.
