A Minority Report Against the Refund ing Bill. Washington, August 30. —Represent- ative Dalzell today submitted to the house, in behalf of the minority house committee on Pacific railways, a report in opposition to the bill for refunding the debt of the Central and Union Pa cific roads. It is signed by Dalzell, Flick, Cooper, of Indiana, O'Neil, of Massachusetts, and Reilly. The opposi tion of these representatives is based upon different reasons, and they re frain, therefore, fiom setting forth at length their individual vie.ws. Some of them are of the opinion that this leg islation is premature at this time, as the seven years yet to elapse before the maturity of the debt, may bring forth changes in the financial position that i would prove any action taken at this time, unwise. If funding acts eventu ally prove the proper methods, they can as well be pressed hereafter, when the real relation between the government and debtors at the time the debts mature, can be intelligently grasped. The minority are unanimous in the opinion that the railway com panies are not justified in asking any ar rangement upon business principles, except on the basis that they shall pay tlie uttermost farthing of their debt. They are clearly of the opinion, as a plain business proposition, that tlie bill reported by the majority gives an unjust advantage to the debtors, and fails to do justice to the government. MINERAL LANDS. An Important Derision Affecting Kail road Grants. Washington August 30.—The secre tary of the interior today deeiderl the case of the Central Pacific railroad against S. D. Valentine, involving the question of exception of mineral lands from railroad grants. The particular tract involved, is in the Sacramento, California, land district. JThe secretary holds that by the terms of the railroad grant, all mineral lands are excepted from its operation, whether known to be mineral in character at the date when the railroad company's rights were attached under the grant, or not, if they are discovered to be mineral lands at any time before the issuance of a patent to the company, or a certification where a patent is not required. He also holds'that the dis covery of the mineral character of the lands, after the company's rights have attacliedto its granted lands, proves that such lands were mineral in character at the date when the company's right attached, and were therefore within the terms of ex ception from the grant. This decision is of vast importance to railroads run ning through mineral belts. This de cision is contrary to the doctrine laid down by Judge Sawyer, United States circuit judge in California, in a recent decision in the case of Franconen against Newhouse. CAPITAL CILLINGS.

Associated Press Dispatches.l Berlin, Augugt 30. —[Copyrighted by the New York Associated Press.J —The progress of the negotiations for the en trance of Russia into the European entente, is indicated by arrangements for the autumn meeting of the sov ereigns. Tiie projected interview de pends largely upon Austria's acceptance of the terms on which p]mperor Wil liam proposes the revision of the Berlin treaty. The opinion of the foreign office offi cials here continues hopeful for a defin ite solution of the Balkan troubles before the end of the year. The Czar has sent the Grand Duke Michael, president of the Russian council, on a special mission to Paris to reassure the French government. The Moscow Gazette seeks to calm the fears expressed by tlie French Press in regard to the desertion of France by Russia, by de claring that the Czar's persistent aim is to maintain the balance of power, recog nizing the fact that Russia and France have common interests and united re sponsibilities. Prominent amongthe measures agreed upon by De Geirs and Yon Caprivi, will be found one looking to the interna tional repression of Anarchists and Ni hilists, the Czar desiring European con cert on this matter. The riotous meet ing of Berlin Socialists at Friedriehsrue lias given the government a pretext for ordering special military piecautions against greater disorders. The tumult at Friedrichsrue arose from an abusive attack made by Heir Wille upon Bebel. At the Catholic congress at Coblentz, six thougand persons attended.
