The secretary's action today indicates
very plainly that he does not care to
apply more than $8,000,000 of the sur
plus at present to the purchase of 4 per
cent, bonds. The offerings today aggre
gated nearly $2,000,000, of which over
$1,000,000 was at 123k. The secretary,
however, confined the acceptances to
$220,000 at 123, and $70,000 at 123> g '.
This makes the total purchases to date
Senator Farwell today introduced a
bill to amend section 1 of the present

The select committee appointed to
investigate the charges against Commis
sioner Kaum met again today. Lewis

the part of Raum in the late election,
and providing for a committee to take

feated hy a party vote of 3 to 1. Lewis

The representatives composing the
house contingent of the joint
congressional committee on im
migration, have agreed upon a
bill to regulate immigration. Chair
man Owen will report the bill soon
as possible. In explanation of the gen
eral features of the measure, Owen today
said: "It is a new contract labor law.
The old law is so wretchedly inefficient
that, according to the testimony of the
labor inspectors themselves, 25 per cent,
of the immigration now coming to the
country is in violation of the contract
labor law. Tlie statute was framed to
meet the condition of things that existed
at the time the law was passed. The
employees have changed their methods,
and the law is unable tn reach them. It
is practically useless ; so we have framed
a new law. Wo have also very much
enlarged prohibited classes of immi
The bill is substantially that intro
duced a week ago by Owen, and hereto
fore published. Polygamous persons are
added to the list of classes defined in
Owen's bill, as not entitled to be admit
ted into the United States. The tax
upon aliens, which in the Owen's bill
was fixed at fifty cents, was increased by
the committee to one dollar.
The house committee on census today
discussed informally and without action
the reapportionment bill. It was de
cided to give a hearing Friday to Brook
lyn on its demand for a recount of that
city, and it was also decided that the
question of the accuracy of tho count in
New York City and similar questions
with respect to Brooklyn and any other
cities, should not delay action on the re
apportionment bill.

including Indians, etc., will reach 03,

Hawley today introduced a bill to
define the line of the army and increase
its efficiency. The bill provides for the
same number of regiments of infantry,
cavalry and engineers as at present, but
increases the artillery by two regiments.
Each regiment of infantry, cavalry and
artillery shall have.one colonel, one lieu
tenant-cjloneT, three majors, and the

twelve..companies. The number of en

ments of artillery shall be officered by
promotion, assignment and transfer of

by transfer from other arms of the
Representative Cutcheon today intro
duced a bill to authorize the president to
prescribe a system of examinations of
enlisted men of the army to determine
their fitness for promotion to the grade
of second lieutenant. The bill embodies
the suggestions in the annual report of
Secretary Proctor, relative to the means
of preventing the exercise of favoritism
in promotions.
Taylor, of Illinois, today introduced in
the house an amendment to the present
tariff act, proposing to fix the duty on

rates of 2 2-10 cents per pound for plate

Two Miners Asphyxiated.
Virginia, Nev., Dec. 10. —Marry Chap
pel was killed, and John Stephens and
Timothy Leary severely iniured in the
Chollar' mine this morning. The men
had fired a blast in the raise above the
850 level, and returning before the pow
der fumes had escaped, were asphyx

to the floor below, about fourteen feet,
where they were found unconscious
shortly afterwards. Stephens and Leary
were resuscitated and will recover, but
Chappel was dead. Chappel leaves a
widow but no children. The air pipe
was found closed with debris from blast

from escaping from the top of the raise

Made Their Report.

Monrovia Rejoicing Over the Location of

Woman's Horrible Death.
Associated Press Dispatches.
San Francisco, Dec. 10. — Colonel
Benyaurd, who has charge of the south
ern coast, states that the engineers,
Colonel Mendell, Colonel Gillespie and
himself, have examined the coast be
tween Point Duma and San Juan Capis
trano for a deep water harbor, but have
not yet made their report.
"There is some misapprehension in
regard to our adverse report upon im
proving the harbor at Santa
Cruz, for which the last con
gress made an appropriation," said
Colonel Benyaurd. "We found that a
breakwater to benefit the harbor would
have to be constructed to a point where
the water is seven fathoms deep, and
the work would cost about $10,000,000.
Neither the present nor prospective
commerce of Santa Cruz would justify
such an expenditure. This iB the third
time the government has had a report
from this point, and the result has been
unfavorable each time.
"The report made by the state officials
recommended work at that point. No
more woik will be commenced on the
southern coast until after the winter
storms are over. We have an appropri
ation for the improvement of Port Har
ford, of $40,000, and a breakwater has
just been completed from San Luis to
Whaler's island, a distance of 2000 feet.
It will prove of great value to Port Har
ford, though not insuring full protection
from southwesterly storms.
"At San Pedro or Wilmington harbor,
it is contemplated to secure a depth of
sixteen feet at mean low water, which
would give about twenty feet in the
channel at ordinary tide. The work
consists of dredging and building stone
jetties. Under the last bill about $35.
--000 was allowed, but it will require sev
eral appropriations to complete what
has been begun.
"For San Diego we have $00,000. The
depth of water on the bar at present is
twenty-one feet, which is to be increased
to twenty-six feet by building a jelty to
Zuninga shoals.
"Appropriations of $8000 each were
made for Redwood and Napa. These
sums will be expended in dredging to
increase the depth for bay craft."
A llogus California Millionaire Arrested
for Insanity.
San Francisco, Dec. 10.—George
Washington Smith, the railroad con
tractor and alleged California million
aire, who was arrested in New York on
the charge of insanity, left San Frail:
cisco for New York about three weeks
ago. He is reported as representing
himself as vice-president of the Nicara
gua Canal company, which, it is stated,
is not a fact. Since Smith first appeared
on the coast three years ago,
he has followed the occupation
of a real estate broker and
speculator. During the land boom in
Southern California Smith was induced
to come to San Diego by the Interna
tional Company of Mexico, operating in
Lower California lands. Smith was en
gaged as immigration manager of the
company, with offices in San Diego. His
part of the business was the selling of
town lots in Ensenada, San Quintin and
places on the Mexican peninsula. After
the International company sold out,
Smith succeeded in obtaining about $5000
from the company, which sum he
claimed was due him on commissions.
Crushed Under a Fiery Log and Burned
to Death.
Portland, Ore., Dec. 10.—Informa
tion has been received of the fatal burn
ing of Mrs. Eckerson, a farmer's wiie,
living six miles from the city. Eckerson
was engaged in clearing laud, and was
burning logs. Mrs. Eckerson, while
her husband was thus engaged, Btepped
on a log which was nearly burned in
two. Her weight caused the log to part,
and she fell on her back on the lower
side, and one of the pieces which was
still blazing rolled upon her and held
her fast underneath. Coals and ashes
dropped down on her upturned face,
burning her in a frightful manner. After
going half a mile for assistance, her hus
band succeeded in extricating the life
less body of his wife.
