Last year's appropriation was $185,000. The sec retary in a letter to the commissioner of the general land office says: If any portion of tbe moneys appropriated to the 1 several states and territories is found to be in of the amount actually needed, it can be charged to some other at any time. Reforms in the PostolHce Department Messrs. Whitfield and Bell today qual ified as first and second assistant post master general respectively. These ap pointments are strictly in the line of civil service reform. With these changes the postmaster general con templates the reorganization of certain offices in the department. Offices which are in the general line will be placed under one head; that is, the railway ser vice and railway contract office will be under the supervision of the new sec ond assistant, Bell. Whitfield, as the first assistant, will have supervising charge of the salary and allowance and free delivery offices, additional to his other duties. These offices have hereto fore been regarded as independent bu reaus, their chiefs passing upon nearly all questions. Commander Reiter Relieved. Lieutenant Commander Reiter of the U. S. S. Ranger has been ordered home, and will be relieved by Commander Wingate. The impression is general here that Commander Reiter is recalled because the secretary of state is dissatis fied at the course pursued by him in regard to the peace negotiations be tween Guatemala and San Salvador, and also in regard to the Barrundia affair. The Ranger was in the harbor at San Jose when Barrundia was killed on the Acapulco. No More Indians for Shows. Acting Indian Commissioner Bell has issued a letter to Indian agents directing them promptly to refuse any applica tions for Indians for "Wild West" shows, as it is now against the policy of the interior department to grant permits for any such purpose under any circum stances whatever.

Washington, Oct. 3.—Assistant Post master-General Tyner, under the direc tion of Postmaster-Gentral Wanamaker, has prepared for publication in the Pos tal Bulletin a lengthy circular to post n tttis, containing instructions for their guidance in the treatment, of "lot tery matter" under the recent lottery act. It saye the section quoted applies to any letter, ordinary or registered, if it concerns any lottery, gift concern or scheme described in the section, and to lottery tickets, checks, drafts, bills, money, postal notes or money orders for the purchase of lottery tickets, orany share or chance in a lottery or gift enterprise, and to the list of draw ings at any lottery or similar scheme, and forbids carrying them in the mails or sending them from any postoffice. The seal of a letter or of any sealed packet prepaid at letter rates, must riot oe disturbed for the purpose of ascer taining if its transmission in the mail, or its delivery at postoffice ia forbidden by the provisions of this act; nor will the mere suspicion that such a letter or packet relates to a lottery, or the fact that it is addressed to any person known to be engaged in the business of con ducting a lottery, justify its detention or non-delivery, except that the delivery of registered letters at the office of des tination, shall be withheld when the postmaster-general has issued specific orders under the provisions of section 3,929, to that effect. REED ON THE ROSTRUM. The Autocrat Assists in Opening the Connecticut Campaign. New Haven, Conn., Oct. 3. —Speaker Reed was here tonight on the occasion of the opening of the Connecticut cam- Saign, under the auspices of the Young ten's Republican club. In his speech he referred to the obstructive tactics of the Democratic minority in the house, and in closing eaid: "We are the sixty five million of people with energy, brains and enterprise ready to reach out in every direction. Such people will never again be content to be ruled by a machine that does not correctly register its business." tfME NATIONAL GAME. A GREAT GATHERING! OF BASE BALL MEN AT CINCINNATI. A Big Price Paid for the Transfer of the Cincinnati Club—Heavy Losses by the League and Brotherhood. | Cincinnati, Oct. 3. —There is a great gathering of baseball men here tonight. The transfer of the Cincinnati club will take place tomorrow. It is learned from a trustworthy source that the price paid is $38,000, of which $20,000 is cash. In an interview with an Associated Press reporter tonight, Secretary Brunei of the Players League said the Brotherhood losses would bo between $50,000 and $00, --000 this year. He estimates the losses of the League at a much greater figure. A New Form of Contract. Philadelphia. Oct. 3.—A new form of contract has been prepared by the officials of the National Baseball league. The reserve clause of the 18th para graph is entirely stricken out, and anew paragraph giving the club the option to renew the contract for whatever num ber of years may be mutually agreed upon. The word "reservation" In the case of disbandment is also stricken out of the 15th paragraph, and authority for a club to assign a contract is in serted. The "ten days" clause is materially altered to the advantage of players. A player finder this form cannot be releas ed between seasons without his consent. If, during the season, he be released while abroad with his club, he shall be entitled to traveling expenses back to his home city. Another change in favor of the player is the right of appeal to the league di rectors, against club fines and penalties that may be considered unjust. The clauses against dissipation and immor ality are strengthened by adding that the player must absolutely refrain from late hours, and any excess and dissipa tion in eating, drinking or otherwise, and must keep himself in the best phys ical condition to play ball, etc. "While the reserve rule is no longer referred to in the contract," said Sec retary Rogers, tonight, "it does not fol low that it will be stricken out of the national agreement. In ajl probability it or its equivalent will always be as heretofore preserved as a necessity for the preservation of the game, but it is not likely to figure in legal contracts or the law courts hereafter."

Van Phon Lee Sued for Divorce Alle Same Mellican Man. The Oklahoma Capital Contest Growing More Intense—The Opposing Fac tion* Up in Arms. Associated Press Dispatches. Scsanton, Pa., Oct. 3.—The sensation al breach of promise case of Miss Annie Husaboe against Rev. Peter Roberts, of the Plymouth Congregational church, ended today with a verdict of $3,000 for the woman. The case has created a tremendous stir here for a long time past. Roberts is a graduate of Yale, and while at New Haven seduced the girl and then connived at a criminal operation. He promised to marry her, but while she was ill, fled to Wales. The girl followed him. He again promised to marry her, and they came back to America, but after he secured a pastorate here, abso lutely refused to carry out his promise. Roberts' attorney made overtures for a settlement, aud once proffered $1,000, but the girl would not accept. While the negotiations were in progress, Rob erts married a most estimable lady of this place. Finally the girl brought suit which resulted as above. The deacons of Roberts' church have been upholding him in the mattet for a long time, but it is thought he will now be compelled to get out. The evidence against him gWSs very damaging, and it is said Rob mrts frag been deceiving his counsel, as well as the women and church, for his counsel presented no testimony in de fense. WILDER AND WOOLLIER. The Capital Fight in Oklahoma Becom- ing Intense. Guthrie, O. T. Oct. 3—Excitement over the capital location was continued to day. After the demonstrations against Messrs. Daniels, Perry and Nesbit last evening had subsided, S. R. Mitchell, city attorney of Oklahoma City, who chahced to be in town, sent this telegram to one of his friends at home : "Your representatives were mobbed on the street today. Send 100 armed men." The armed men arrived this morning and were among the first to secure stats ' of advantage in the hall of the lower house. Fully as many friends of the Guthrie measure, equally strongly armed, were also present. Their pres ence caused intense feeling, and it would have taken but the slightest outbreak to have caused serious trouble. Speaker Daniels was too ill, suffering from ner vious exhaustion caused by the exciting scenes of yesteiday, to preside. As soon as the house was called to order, Repre sentative Torrill introduced a resolution calling attention to the presence of armed men in the chamber, declaring their presence undesirable and directing the sergeant-at-arms to eject all spectators, newspaper men excepted. The resolution was voted down, 20 to 50. Considering the probability of a repe tition of yesterday's riotous demon stration, it was deemed advisable to postpone until tomorrow further action on the capital question. The speaker has prepared a resolution which will be introduced tomorrow, providing for the recall of the bill from the senate. When this resolution is presented, a lively time is expected.

A Nova Scotia Journal's Serious View of the Measure. It Thinks It Is Aimed at the Dismember ment of the British Empire and Canada's Annexation. Associated Press Dispatches. 1 : Halifax, Oct. 3.—Discussing the Boston Herald's article on the effect of the McKinley bill in Europe, the Hali fax Herald will say tomorrow: What ever other countries may do, we con ceive it to be almost imperative on Great Britain to take decided action in the matter. The McKinley bill has been passed with the avowed purpose of coercing Canada into severing her connection with the British empire, and becoming a part of the United States. It is therefore, in its nature, an act of war on the British empire, to bring about its dismemberment. Will Great Britain go on affording her ene mies the same trade facilities in her ports she accords her own child ren? The case for discrimination against the United States, in view of the policy they have adopted, is too strong to be successfully resisted. The empire cannot afford to stand inactive while a commercial war is waged against any of its ports; more especially when the avowed object of that war is to accom plish the humiliation and dismember ment of the empire itself. HUSTLING THEMSELVES. The Canucks in a Hurry to Unload Their Surplus Products. New York, Oct. 3.—Dispatches from several points along the border in Can ada tell of ft great rush to ship to the United States ail the barley, peas, eggs, etc., possible before the McKinley hill goes into effect. Buyers have stopped buying anything in the lines affected by the tariff in the United States market; and in several points this has caused almost a stagnation in barley, eggs, ap ples, etc. The majority of this season's production will get to market under the old tariff.

San Francisco, Oct. 3. —A represen tative of the firm of J. D. Spreckels & Co. today said the strikes in the Austra lian coal mines continue with unabated force, and there are no indications at present of a speedy settlement of the ' labor troubles. There are five ships from that country now on the way to this port, carrying 12,000 ton 3. When the last one arrives no more coal will be received from the colonies for five months. Australian fuel is now quoted at $10.50 per ton for cargo lots, and it is believed the retail price will soon ad vance to $14 or $16 per ton. Spreckels & Co. consider the outlook for household consumers during the coming winter as very unfavorable. Captain Taylor, of the Oregon Navi gation company, said: "I think the outlook for household consumers is good. Some of the northern mines are doing better, and with a heavier force at work will turn out more coal. Onr company is always short and could not be regarded as a' criterion by wnich to judge the general market. Our yards are cleaned out as quickly as the ships arrive, and when our last cargoes came in, we raised the price of dean coal from $6 to $7 per ton.'* H. D. Chandler, who owns a mir in the Wellington district, said: our output is increasing, and I don't antici pate a hard winter. The strikes in the other Wellington mines will soon be settled. The main cause for a shortage in the market, is the cutting into domestic trade by those who have pre viously used Australian coal." At the office of the Oregon Improve ment company, the'agents for a Seat tle coal official said: "We raised the price $1 per ton the first of this month. We are so short that when a customer orders 100 tons we furnish him with ten tone. Our mines are putting out as much coal as ever, between 13,000 and 14,000 tons per month, but none of it re mains in our yards." A TALL YOUNG MAN From Log Angeles and His Name la J. W. Pratt. * Tacoma, Wash., Oct. 3. —The police have been looking several days for a tall young man named J. W. Pratt, wanted in several places on the coast for forgery. Last night Captain McKay arrested him at Tacoma and started at* midnight with him for Portland. It is said Pratt has been committing a series of forgeries along the coast, the last one being for $300 on a Portland bank. Pratt registered from Los Angeles in this city, and says his parents are wealthy and will adjust the matter for him.
