Many of them were he-e eight years ago, but wbhen Cleveland sesumes the direction of government affai e four weeks hence, they will realize that the classie le civil service, during the present administration, has absorbed many places thought to be desirable. The general lend office will still have a few places at its dis pasal, among the number seventeen sur veyors general, one each in Arizona, Alaska, California, Colorado, FlorJsa, Idaho, Lon isiana, Minnesota, Montana, Nevada, Now Mexico. North Dakota, Oregon, South Dakota, Utah, Washington and Wyoming. The salaries attached to these offices range from $1,800 to $2,700.

Clarkson's Ceomienta on the Matter Lead to ,omle Diicusalon. WAsmIINOTON, Feb. 5.-The criticism upon the appointment by L'residenlt Harrison of Judge Jackson to euceed the late Associate Justice LaLutar on the supreme benhob, made by J. S. Clarkson and published this morn ing, was the subject of considerable discue sion among politicians. The fact that Clarkson had requested Senator Cullom to I protest ntainst the conol!rnation of Judge Jackson's nomination adds to the interest in the affair. Benator Cuilom was seen this nfte noon by a reporter and asked what action, if any, he had determined to take. H." raid he had been so busy with other matters he was unable to consider the subject and had nothing to say as to his intention in regard to the nonina tion. It is not considered probable by many senators that Judge Jack son's non:ination will be rejected. tiotwith standing there is consider able opposition to him n iong the democratio I lmbolse of the seniIate. They say Judge Jackson is not satisfactory to them as a party tman, and Sienator litrris is quoted as h:bviUg re ferred to him as no more of a democrat then the men on the other side of the chamber. One of the president's friends said this mafternoon that Cla ksont's sat:e ment that no other president eve, before appointed mn.mberes o the supremo bench froln the rlanks of another party is not well founded on fact. He said the prersid, nt had ta ptrecedent in the first rtpubllolion president for the naomiation oft rudge Jackson; that in 1813 ,l esident Lincoln nominated Stephen J. Field, a delmoerait, to a |lace on the bench which lField still retains. If Judge Jackson is now rejected by the sluntat, he said C'leveland of necessity almost would be conmplled to sOlnd his nameli into the senate naulti, ti:us teventing the possibility of the noatuina tion of a man who nmight be possessed of the undesirable qualifle tiona menrtioned by (Clrkson in his letter critlresirn the president's action. In thi cornllnection tHieator )oll h desires to have it stated thit the report that he is an it piloanti for the place on the lappremno brclh imadite vacant by tihe death of ,Jllticnaa IL,.atIatr is unt:ue; on the contrary hb volunteered to sayv toa the presicent that in lhi o;nilton tlh appoautee should be taken front Justice Lamar's circuit.

Time Salumon Interests in Alaska, WAaHINOTON, Feb. 5.-United States Flbsh Commissioner MoDonald does not look for any legislation by the present congress for the preservation of the salmon lisberles of Alaska. But his purpose is to maku at de ternined effort to secure legislation on the subject by the next congrens. 'I he commis sioner says it is lint osslble to impress upon the legislators the imnurtaince of the in duotry to the United States and the enorm ous pecuniary interests involved. C(nmmis stoner McDonald says if the salmon in Alaskan waters are properly cared for the industry would in a short timie 0Ir more valuable to the U)nited States than the sel ing interests in lia ing sea. over which thsie is so much discussion. Unless some reun lations are plovided by cougress he fears the indiscriminate catch of salmon will be g eat, and that the supply will be exhausted. (lChuck FIll of Statsfatcs.

HE PREFERS MITCHELL. But Corbett Says the Engllshman Must Put Up $10,000. ST. Louts, Feb. 5.-Jim Corbett, the pugilist, said in an interview here: "I will fight any man in the world next December or January. That is about as early as I can expect to get in the ring. My World's fair theatrical engagement will keep me busy until October, and then I will want six or eight weeks to train. After the Hall-.Ftz simmons affair isover Iwill receive proposi tions. Hall will win that fight, by the way. If Mitchell don't want any of my game Jackson or Goddard can get on a match." Corbett added that after his next tghbt he will make a tour of the world, giving spar ring exhibitions in every city of note. When p eased to talk definitely ibout a fight with Mitchell, he placed financial figures so high and in such absolute posting terms that scarcely any pugilist living will be able to meet them. He said: "I will fight Mitchell with the understanding that he puts up $10,000 of stakes in one lump sum; deposits of $2,500 installments won't go with me. This confounded Englishman is as keen as a ferret, and if I were to consent to his depositing $2,500 instalments, he might forfeit to me after the first instalment. Of course, this would lose him his $2,500, but the advertisement he would get out of it might stand him in good stead. I insist, tberefo-e, that he hangs up $10,000 as a first deposit. I will fight him for any sum no to $.0,000, and before the club that of fers the largest purse. It strikes me that there would be more credit in my whipping Mitchell than any other of my antagonists. I can whip Mitchell sure. In the first place I am his superior in height and reach, and I am perfectly satisfied that no man living who is omy inferior in length of body and arm can master me." Goddard Says He Can Lick Corbett. SAN FANctisoo, Feb. 5.--'I think I can whip Corbett sooner than Peter Jackson can, because I wouldn't lot him rest a mo ment," said Joe Goddard, in an interview here, "They may say what they like about his cleverness, but I don't consider him a puncher, and a twenty-fon--foot ring is none too big for me to catch him in. Cor bett was at his best when he met Sullivan, and daring the whole twenty-one rounds there wasn't a blow at nuk that could hurt me. Choynski out me up worse than any one I ever met, but he did not daze me. The worst lick lie caught me was on the chin. It was a righthander and it split the flesh as if I had been slashed with a knife. Maher is a still Iuncuer, but he didn't hurt me any. I have yet to find the man who can daze me with a blow."

A Rumor That Two Sticks' Friends Were Moving Toward the Agency. (Capt. Brown, the Agent, Does Not Fear Any Serious Trouble -- Various Stories of the Matter. OnMAno, Neb., Feb. 5.-A Ilee special from Pine Ridge Agency, S. D.. says a telegram heus reen received by Capt. Brown. United States Indian agent there, from the foreman of the government beef contractors, that he was at the beef camp during the recent killing, but made his escape. He stated positively that four cowboys were killed. No reason wne given for the killing. Every thing points to wilful and cruel murder. A detachment has been sent from here to bring the bodies of the white men to the agency, but friends of the murdered men refoused to let the police have the remains, claiming they would attend to the burial themselves. It has since been learned that the four bodies were sent to Hermosa, . D., yesterday. Information has been received sinoe the engagement between the Indian police and Two Sticks' band that it was to the firm and heroic stand that Young-Man-Afraid-of-Hei-Horses took which prevented another outbreak. A courier just in from the camp reports that Two Sticks aod his sons returned two or three hours after killing the cowboys and took all the bed clothing in the camp and stole what food was in sight. It is a difficult matter to obtain reliable particulars. Last night it was rumored that Two Sticka' friends were moving towards the agency and going to fire the government buildings, but this cannot be confirmed. A blizzard is now raging, which is usually more cooling to Indian ardor than any thing else. Capt. Brown does not fear serious trouble, but others have not the same opinion. THE STORIES DISAGREE. One Says Two Sticks' Crowd Opened Fire, the Others Says the Pollee Did. RUSrrILLE, Nob., Feb. 5.-Another ebap ter in the shooting tragedy on the Sioux reservation was enacted Friday evening near the spot where the four whitemen were killed. As soon as the news of the tragedy was brought to Pine Ridge, Capt. Brown. the agent, dispatched twelve mounted po loes under command of Police Sergeant Joe Bush, to the scene of the shoot ing, with instructions to arrest and bring in the perpetrators of the bloody wolk. When the squad arrived at its does - tination, Two Sticks and a crowd opened fire on them and a skirmish took place, re su!ting in the death of two of Two Sticks' party and the wounding of one of Two Sticks' sons and another buck being killed. Two Sticks was wounded slightly in the ankle. Another account of the affair is that when the police squad reached the camp they opened fire on the party they were sent to arrest without warning and without mak ing their mission known. and shot them down in cold blood, but this version of the bloody affair is not aoedited. More definite details concerning the kill ing of the four white m,,n reached here this evenling. Although the names of all the men cannot Le definitely larned, yet it is known Clark Bacon and his eon-in law were not among the number. The mo tive for the murder cannot be definitely learned.

A $10.(00J cash deal was made here the other day. whereby W. i'. RIussell and his partners become sole owners of a group of six prospects on Carpenter creek in the Hlocan country.

This prire $10,000) is considered absurdly low, con alderriu the vest sanritity of ore in sight. It was like sellung $20 gold nieces for $111 each. The ledge meaasres from six inches to ten feet in width, with walls of a Hhale formation. The ore is reay corver Itltd silver, and assays from 1,200 to :,.00(N ounces of silver to the toln, arid 1I per cent. coip er. A mile of wagon road will be built in the spriny, connecting the grout with tie Cat penter creek-Kaslo road, when shipping ore will be commenced, Rlussell and his part ners also own two adjacent claims, the 'tiger and Keno.

This ore will be sent to Montana smelters via Kailo and the G eat Northern railway. There is now pending in the Idaho legis lature two bills for the establishment of a state school of mines. Th, first bill intro duced, to locate the school at Osborn, in the C.rmr d'Alenos, was drawn up by Judge W. 1B. Heyburn, the noted mining lawyer and politician. Representative Crane, of Kootenai county, then presented a bill to place the school at Coiur ei'Aline City. Of the two points Osborn is undoubtedly the more suitable, as it is in the heart of the mining region, whereas Crour d'Alene City is pros erly an auriculturat and lumbering town, and has not a fint fide mine within twenty miles. It is iequired that the town securing tihe school shall donate to the state a suitable mineralized ledge for ex perimental purposes. The matter comes up for a final discussion on Monday. Feb. 6.
