Indians Must Hereafter Attend
Ilome Schools..
Children- Can't " Go More Than
! Forty Miles Away, j
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.
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.
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.
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. About 1:30
o'clock this morning Frank Manning,
a guard at mine 43, saw several men
creeping toward the boiler house and
fired upon them. The men returned
the lire and about fifty shots were
exchanged. Other guards went to
the assistance of Manning, who was
shot through the right leg, and the
others fled.

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,

The refugees on the United States
steamer Bennington have demanded
transfer under guard to a Pacific Mail
steamer. Captain Thomas has refused
it, saying that, while they are not
prisoners and are at liberty to leave
if they wish to do so, he is not
authorized to furnish guard. He will
await instructions from his govern
ment. 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. Sultan Abdul Aziz, in his proclama
tion to the people, promises amnesty
to persons who have been guilty of
offenses against his father, but threat

Dun's Report Says Woolen Mills
Are Closing Kapidly.
Coal Famine Will End With
the Coal Strike.
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."
"Uross earnings of 127 railroad com
panies for Mav reflect heavy losses
caused the transportation interests
because of the coal strike and the
general business depression. Earn
ings of 99,332 miles of railroad in May
aggregated S36, 154,549, a decrease of
17.7 per cent from the May total last
year, the heaviest decrease from last
year shown in any month so far this
year. For five months 126 roads earned
$179,891,087, a decrease of 14.2 per
cent from the corresponding total a
year ago.

Supreme Lodge of Workmen.
San Fbancisco, June 16. The su
preme lodge of A. O. U. W. resumed

business of the morning's session was
the consideration of a report from a
special committee favoring an appro

This was one of the recommendations
made by Grand Master Shields in his
report. The proposition met with
considerable opposition on the floor,
but it was passed by a handsome
Editor Brown In a Mother Hubbard.
Wichita, Kan., June 16. At King
man last night when Editor Brown
returned from the Populist conven
tion,, where he bitterly fought
woman's suffrage, was met at the

march through the streets before a

suffrage did it.

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
"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."
