Forty Miles Away, j A PROPOSED LAW, Carlisle School Will Suffer if Bill is Passed. Washington, June 16. A provision of the Indian appropriation bill, which was adopted in committee of the whole, prohibits all Indian children from attending1 any school more than forty miles from their reservation until they have gone to the school provided for' them at home at least four years. This provision of the bill, if it is enacted into a law, will have the effect of reducing- the num ber of Indians sent away to eastern schools and very materially increas ing' their home education. Several of the western representatives are confident that the Carlisle school will Buffer from the provision. There is a growing1 sentiment in favor of educating1 the Indians at home as far as possible, and no legislation of recent years has been so pronounced in this direction as that which was in corporated into the Indian bill. Representative Curtis of Kansas made a hard tight to have the section of the bill approved which secures, to the Indian? the principal and interest due them from Southern states for the sale of their old reservations. It amounts now to more than S3, 000,000, and the states have shown a disposi tion to defer payment indefinitely. The proposition was however, defeat ed on a point of order. Delegate Flj'nn of Oklahoma, will again attempt to have incorporated in the bill his commutation pTan for Oklahoma, permitting1 bettlers to prove up their claims in fourteen months. Failing- to secure this in the house, an effort will be made to have the senate make the-provision. ANOTHER SILVER COXFEREN'CE. Ifegult of the Step Taken by Mexico Watched With Interest. Washington, June 16. The results of the steps taken by the Mexican government to ascertain the senti ment of the silver-using nations of the world toward a confereuce on that subject at the City of Mexico, are being watched with much inter est by the advocates of a further use of the white metal in this citv. ! Should a sufficient number of these nations indicate their Willing ness to send delegates to a conference one will be held, and the belief is ex pressed by those in a position to know that such will be the case. Peru and the Argentine Confedera tion have already signified a willing ness to participate in a conference, but the United States has not yet in dicated its attitude on the subject. China and Japan are also expected to return favorable answers, though as yet sufficient time has not elapsed in which to receive a repl3 It is ex pected that if a conference is held it will take place during the latter part of the present year. CJJCLE SAM'S FINANCES. Estimated Results of Treasury Opera tions for tbe Year. Washington, June 16. As the end of the fiscal year is only fifteen days distant, treasury officials are able to give a fairly accurate estimate of the net results of the treasury's opera tions for the year. Up to this time the receipts aggregate $282,204,721, and the disbursements S 5o(i, 197,3 :J7, leaving a deficit for the eleven and a half months of $74,92,616. It is thought by the officials that the deficit for the year will not be materially greater than it is now, and that $74.50,0(0 will probably more than cover it, even should the customs receipts continue to decline, and those from internal revenue remain as dur ing1 the last fortnight. While the cash balance yesterday reached 5115, 095,232, and the gold balance S'S7,S04, 972 the lowest point since the Jan uary bond issue the situation is caus ing but little uneasiness at the treas ury department. FLOOD DAMAGE GREAT.- Portland's Klver Front Property Losses Severe The Cmt to Kallrouda. Omaha, Neb., June 18. A detailed report of flood damage in the North west was received at Union Pacific headquarters vhis morning from the company's agent at Portland, alt declares that property along the riVer front there, in addition to being greatly damaged. has permanently depreciated fifty percent. The Union Pacific suffered more than any other road, its tracks from Umatilla to Port land still being under water and its loss being conservatively placed at $1,500,000 to date. . The Northern Pa cific's loss will be about half that amount. A year will elapse before all the damage can be repaired. Strikers and Guards Exchange Shots. Bevixk, Ma, June 16.

Members Speculating , ea That Contla reocT Sinee the Populist Convention. Washington, June 16. The declara tion of the Kansas Populist conven tion for the woman suffrage amend ment was not a surprise to the con gressional delegation from that state. Representative Broderick said that he would not be surprised to se the ;ause succed at the polls. Not a few Republicans are in favor of it, he thinks, while the expression of the Populist delegates may be fairly taken as showing its strength in that party. In the event of election of a woman to congress, an interesting question will be presented concerning her eligibility. The house is the judge of the qualifications of its members, but it is thought that a state constitution would create a presumption in favor of a woman member-elect that would largely influence the house. Repre sentative Baker believes that the woman's suffrage amendment will carry in Kansas. Green Goods Men "Protected. New York, June 16. George Appo, a ' green goods man, was before the Lexow investigating committee yes terday.

The Illinois supreme court has handed down an opinion in the cases brought by the Republicans at Dan ville and the Populists at Springfield to set aside the legislative apportion ment made by the Democratic legisla ture last year. The supreme court virtually affirms the decrees of the lower courts, holding it has no juris diction.

THIS WEEK'S TRADE. - - Dun's Report Says Woolen Mills Are Closing Kapidly. Coal Famine Will End With the Coal Strike. BUT 'TWILL TAKE TIME Bank Clearing Decreased in Almost Every City. New York, June 16. R. G. Dun A Cot's Weekly Review of Trade says: "The strike of bituminous coal miners will end Monday, wherever the au thority and advice of their general organization can end it, and there is little room to doubt the coal famine will then begin to abate. Some time must elapse before supplies of fuel will enable all works to resume that have no other reason for suspending production. The actual output of pig iron weekly June 1 was 62,517 tons, against 126,732 April X, and 174,029 a year ago, but the reduction of 243, 552 tons in unsold stock indicates a quantity nearly double the output ha been taken for consumption. "At New York boot and shoe shops have stopped, but shipments from the Kast are ten per cent larger for June thus far than last year. The demand is mainly confined to low-priced goods and has recently been more narrow for women's shoes. "The woolen mills are closing rap idly. It is asserted scarcely any have orders to occupy them beyond July 1 in men's wear, but in the demand for dress goods a somewhat better tone is perceptible. "Wheat is only a fraction higher, the exports and ordinary consump tion for the year having already ex ceeded the government estimate of last year's crop by 124,000,000 bushels. "While business is narrow, it is comparatively free from losses by failure, for the liabilities reported in failures for the fir&t week of June were only 2,507,228, of which 8476,118 were of manufacturing and $1,872,261 of trading concerns. The aggregate liabilities thus far reported in May were but 813,514,760, of which $5,146,- 025 were of manufacturing- and $6,912.- 302 of trading concerns. The number of failures this week have been 232 in the United States against 313 last year, and forty in Canada, against thirty-four last year."

(t Is Beins Paid Off at a Rapid Bate Treasurer Stephens Talks. Jefferson Citt, Ma, June 16. State Treasurer Lon V. Stephens will forward to the American Exchange National bank of New York city, the state's fiscal agent, in a few days, his sheck for $348,000, to take up $162,000 6 per cent Hannibal and St. Joseph renewal bonds, and $186,000 of the state's 6 per cent funding bonds, due July 1. He will also forward check for about $130,000 to meet semi-annual interest due July 1, next, on the state debt. "On April 1 last," said Treasurer Stephens, "I .forwarded to the Ameri can Exchange National bank of New York my check for $60,000 to pay off 6 per cent bonds of the state, which matured on that date. This will make $414,000 of our 6 per cent debt which we have paid off within the last six months. The constitution only requires the extinguishment of 6250,000 of our debt annually. On January 1 next $409,000 more of our 6 per cent bonds mature, and there will be enough money in the sinking fund to pay them off also. When that amount is taken in there will be outstanding but $521,000 6 per cent state bonds, and just as fast as they mature we will take them up. We understand times are a little hard and money is a little scarce in some portions of the United States, but not so in Missouri. Mis souri is all right, and will have after the July bonds are paid off a balance in the treasury that will justify a payment to the school children of the state in August of about $800,000. "Our fiscal agent wrote me recently that in the event that we did not have money enough to take in the six per cent bonds due July 1, they would gladly take them in and carry for us at three and one-half per cent- in terest, until such time as we were ready to cancel them. Missouri's reputation as a 'silver Ptate hasn't hurt her perceptibly in- New York, as far as I can observe." STRIKE NOTES.
