Feb. 11.-In the United States district court to-day Judge Bel linger handed down a decision in the case of the California & Oregon Land company vs. the government agents, seek. ing to allot the lands on the Klamath Indian reservation. In this actioft the plaintiff corporation soutght to restrain the agents from allot ting the lands on the ground that it had title to them by virtue of purchase from the Oregon Central Military Road com pany. The lands in dispute. comprising about 110.000 acres, were a portion of the grant of congress to the state of Oregon for the construction of a military road from Eugene City to the eastern boun dary of the state. In 1M64 the state deeded the land to the Oregon Central Military Road company. which constructed the frod. and the plaintiff in this action claims to have acquired title by purchase from the latter. The case was presented to the court on an application for a tempcrary in junction restraining the defendants from proceeding with the allotment until the merits of the controversy are determined. The court dented the application and this virtually disposes of the matter, as the allotting agents can now proceed with their work without further interruption. If the plaintiff has further recourse it is against the government for the value of the land that it claims title to. In the treaty with the Indians the court finds that a reservation was made for the tract now known as the Klamath reservation, and that title to this has never passed from the Indians.

Feb. 11.-The formal opening of "The Metlen." Dillon's new hotel, oc . to-day withgreaat pomp and eclat. Visitors from all 0i01s of the county and various points in the state were present.

During the reception the Dillon orches tra, under the leadership of Professor t. A. Sullivan. furnished delightful musl. The Dillon ladies. costumed in their best bonnets and gowns. turned out en masse and for three hours the Hotel Met len was crowded from basement to garret with an assemblage of pleasure seekers never before and never likely to again be seen in Dillon in one body. Universal praise and admiration for the elegant furnishings for the hotel throughout were heard from every lip. Refreshments of a light nature were served to the guests during the afternoon.

Dun & Co.'s Weekly Review of Trade will say in its Issue of to-morrow: Business is pushing toward spring activity rather early. Events which have controlled are good buying of Iron by the largest makers, the rise in cotton, with the strength in goods. the great railway consolidations and the Cuban insurrection. The latter, with its possibilities, operates as a brake on speculation, and foolishness of local traders gave foreigners an opportunity to buy stocks on balance, about 45.000 shares. January earnings. $38.017.417. already re ported, are 18.6 per cent. better than last year and 9.5 per cent. better than in 1897. showing the best month in six years at least, and February returns thus far are promising. The output of pig Iron in February was 22i9,113 tons weekly, the largest in the his tor. of the business, but the reported buying of 130,000 tons of Bessemer iron by the Carnegie company and 100.000 tons by ancther of the largest steel concerns. nevertheless means decision by the ablest manufacturers that the unprecedented output of pig iron will soon prove too small for the growing demand for tin ished products. The Illinois Steel com pany has contracted for a million tons of Bessemer ore, and producers of other ranges count upon an advance in priccs. Bessemer pig rose to $10.15 and grey forge to $9 at Pittsburg. with finished products generally stronger. Retail contracts already cover, it is said, more than last year's production, the railroads buying more than usual. But contracts for cars, wagons. etc.. from the farmers are heavy at the West. Structural contracts there are numerous and at the East, with 50.000 tons estimated for New York buildings alone this year, while plate and sheet contracts for the season are unprecedented. .1anu arN was one of the biggest months in the t'enneli vyule coke output. 98:.ts00 tons. and fur nare continued at the same price. Tin rore to 14 cents in spite of li.try ship ments. and copper to 1ie or better for lake, in spite of enormous Amertoct: pro duction. The rise in cotton of 7-t ft the week results in part from tatter ptosptc-ts for manufacture here and air, ad onl- in pier t. The movement shows no , h.1. of -on sequence, but prices of iieti iant- a stronger tone. With the be-ur tone pre vailing this manufacture shioil soot ietl the heavy demand ablh Ii ti.e .tt.er inus tricl are meeting. tV. ol sales at the chief tet.s wetr snit t ~:.000 pounds for the week. s:iii 11.ita - 600 pounds for two week against tut) pounds last year. l'r,,-es . ,re still strong in spite of the tin r.,+ ndttl, r race of manufacturers ato i em t, c s . at secured ample supplies. For the better grade of wool goods :, advance averaging 1:.50 per cent. from last year Is readily maintained. The opt. ing of works idle for a ye.ar in spite of the heavy production already assured. is a striking feature in this, as in the iron and other industraes, and impites heavier demands for produate than are now 0get by the uapiecedeaited output. Wheat' has leen streaw, with spot, a£' vancing ! amts and May 2%j at44 though Western receipts have been for two weeps 5,89.,175 bushels, against 3,317, 875 busbels last year.

Corn exports are-also surprisingly well sustaiadi, 7,1$5 bushels against 7,I18 last year, and the price has advanced a trifle. It Is yet too early for prospects of a comning crop to Influence markets ma terially and heavy opdrations at Chies go. with reported sales of 1,000,000 bushels for export on Thursday have deterred speculative selling. Business shown by bank clearings is again larger than before. 54.7 per cent. larger than last year for the week and for the month to date. 44.3 per cent. larger than last year, and 12.6 per cent. larger than in 1251. Pallures for. the week have been 235 In the Unlt6d States against 267 last year, and 42 In Canada against 61 last year. I'adstreel' Rteport. New York. Feb. 11.-Brad street's to. morrow will say: A number of favorable circumstances and events present them selves this week. Perhaps the most nota ble of these are the renewed activity and confidence In the Iron and steel market, accompanied by prompt, and even rapid, advances In several grades of pig Iron and steel and the advance In the price of raw cotton, long predicted but unrealised until the present week. What might be regarded as a minor feature in the busli ness situation, though at the same time containing much that is hopeful to the Interest Involved, is a general improve ment in distributive trade and demand in the Central West and the South, . where spring trade Is reported opening in good shape. Less favorable features of the week are the slowness of the spring trade In dry goods in New York and other East ern centers, except Boston, and the mild weather in the Northwest, rendering it likely that retailers' stocks carried over will be larger than earlier expected. Al though the advance In cotton has been claimed to be too rapid, it has undoubted ly imparted a more cheerful tone to the Southern business situation, and with the advance in Iron and steel has done much to add to the confidence with which the trade outlook for 1888 is regarded. Business failures continue to make fa vorable comparisons with previous weeks and years, the total for the week just ended being 218 against 295 last week. 301 In the corresponding week of 1897. 381 in this week of 1896, 296 in 1695 and 288 in 1894. Canadian failures for the weeK number 51 against 42 last week, but compared with 54 in this week a year ago and 70 In the corresponding week of 1896. Wheat exports fall slightly below last week's reduced total, aggregating for the week 3,419,504 bushels, against 3,635.000 bushels last week. 2,051,000 bushels in the corresponding week of 1897. 2,718,000 bush els in 1896, 2,572.000 bushels in 1895 and 2.005,000 bushels in 1894. Corn exports show a gain amounting to 4,508.000 bushels, against 4.101,000 bushels last week. 4.169,000 bushels in this week a year ago, 3,148,000 bushels in 1896 and 526,000 bushels in 1895. Bank clearings continue to point to an immense business doing in the country at large in a total aggregating for the week, $1,343,000.000, less than 2 per cent. smaller than last week, 92 per cent. larger than the corresponding week Irst year, 52 per cent. larger than thir week in 1896, 74 per cent. larger than 1895. 82 per cent. larger than in 1894 and 6.3 per cent. larger than this week in 1892. Finaneial Review. New York. Feb. 11.-Bradstreetls Finan cial Review to-morrow will say: After a moderate depression on the Cuban devel opments early in the week, the stock mar ket regained its bullish tone and showed an advancing tendency. More or less liqui dation of long stocks was caused by the renewal of Cuban agitation in the senate and the incidents connected with the resignation of the Spanish minister at Washington, and an unsettled feeling was prevalent. At the same time the market seemed to be ripe for such a movement, large amounts of stocks having passed into weak hands, leaving the market in a condition in which even a slight reac tion would have a beneticial effect. An other circumstance of some importance, which had a rather unsettling effect, was the attitude of the administration in re gard to the sale of the Kansas Pacific property and the announcement that the attorney general, failing in all other means of inducing the Union Pacific reor ganization committee to raise the bid to the full amount of the treasury claims, the government would pay the first mort gage, and as the owners of the 2 per cent. prior liens ask for indefinite postpone ment of the sale and the appointment of a receiver in its own interest. This caused selling of the various Un ion Pacific securities, though the firm ness of the Kansas Pacific consolidated bond was noticeable, and later on the en tire group gained strength on the be lief that a compromise would be effected. The announcement of the terms of the New York Central-Lake Shore exchange of securities also had a tendency, not un tsual in such cases. to cause selling of the speculative holdings, although the mark ed strength of the other Vanderbilt stocks, particularly Michigan Central. and the prominence given to reports about an exchange of that company's stock for New York Central security had a good effect on the market at large. Sharp advances in Northwestern and Omaha were also made on the revived re port that those companies would be con solidated and that perhaps the preferred stock of the former would be retired with a bond issue. Even in the face of a de clining market on Tuesday and Wednes day the strength of Metropolitan Trac tion was a feature, its advances being of the extraordinary kind. and were only accounted for by the rumors of a divi dend. Commission houses were sellers in the early part of the week, but the buy ing from this source and by professionals at the declines was large. and apart from the rather aggressive bear selling at times the market exhibited no extreme pressure, and in the main preserved its strong un dertone. even while the Cuban developt ments and the De Iome incident were re garded as liable to take a serious aspect.

St. Louis, Feb. 11.-After three days of hard work, the national assembly of the League of American Wheelmen to-night finally adjourned after one of the most notable seusions ever held by that body. The all important question of local op tion in the matter of Sundayracing was again defeated, an amendment provid ing that state divisions be granted the right to determine for themselves whether or not Sunday blyale races should be permitted being voted down by but six votes. President Potter voted for the amendment. The divisions voting solidly in favor of the amendment were: District of Co lumbia, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Ken tucky, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Mis souri, North Carolina, Ohio, Tennessee. The divisions unanimously against the amendment were: Colorado, Connecti cut, Delaware, Iowa, Kansas, Maine, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas, Wisconsin. Maryland cast 1 vote for, 6 against; Michigan, 6 for, 2 against; New York, 62 for, 8 against; Pennsyl vania, 6 for, 57 against; Rhode Island, 1 for, 6 against. Thirty-two other amendments were disposed of during the day in various ways. Some were indefinitely postponed or withdrawn, while four were defeated. Among the most important of those adopted are the following: "Article 3, of the constitution, a new section in serted to read: No. 9-No professional shall be eligible to entry in any open race run under the rules of the League of American Wheelmen unless he s registered with the racing board." Article 3, section 8 (L.) substitute; Contestants at meets closed to a college or to any number of colleges forming .in Intercollegiate meet, may for those meets be only governed by the amateur rules of the intercollegiate associatlan or amateur athletes of America. Article V., section 3, was amended by striking out the word "wheelmen." Other amendments adopted provided for the payment of $2,500 a year as compensation to Chairman Mott of the national racing board, and declaring that hereafter no sanctions would be given for any six-day continuous races unless the riders be compelled to take at least two hours' rest out of every twenty-four. Resolutions were adopted fixing the registration of the professionals at $2 per year, calling on the national gov ernment to push the demand on the Turkish government for the prompt payment of $40,000 indemnity to the mother of Frank E. Lens, the Pitts burg member of the L. A. W. who was murdered in Turkish territory while on a tour of the world; favoring the pas sage by congress of the bill introduced by Representative Davies of California for the appointment of a commission to view the roads in the national for est reserve of Yosemite valley in Cali fornia, and report to the next seqslon of congress the best location for a road through that reservation. R. C. Botier of Milwaukee introduced the following resolution, which was warmly endorsed by prominent men in the league and finally adopted: "Re solved, That the executive committee of the L. A. W. be instructed to inves tigate the feasibility of turning over to some other organization or body the control of racing and to report its re sults at the next national assembly." This concluded the work of the as sembly, which adjourned sine die. TO CUSS A COLD IN ONE DAY Take Laxative Bromo Quiine Tablets. All drug gixts efunad the money if it fail to cure. SOe. 9 he #4nine 1has I. k. Q. on each tab et. Finaneier's Review. New York, Feb. 11.-The Financier says: The statement of the associated banks of New York city for the five days ended Feb. 11 (Saturday being a holiday), i. a favorable exhibit, both from a banking and commercial standpoint. Loans show an expansion of 15.970,600. the increases originating apparently with two of the larger banks; the National City and the National Park, whpse combined totals account for t!b change over the preceding week. The most interesting feature of the statement, however, is the lose of Cash reported. The decrease for the week was $1,130,500, which is the first shrinkage since the enormous inward flow which marked the end of December and the first week of January. At the beginning of this year the reserve of the banks was $15.800.000. It is now said to be $32,487.050, an increase of more than 316,627,000. In the same period loans have expanded more than 132,000.000 and deposits $17,700,000. This, while the loan increase has been far above the nor mal, it was Impossible to make use of all the money going into the banks. This review assumes that the increases were due to legitimate business opera tions, but the many special transactions growing out of the transactions between the banks and the treasury are a factor that make a correct deduction impossible. At any rate. now that the banks seem to have reached the limit of cash acces sions, the money market will probably recover somewhat from the demoralisa tion which has marked its course thus far during 1899. If the past is of value in comparison it may be recalled that for the same week and the previous one in 1987 the banks reduced their reserve $85.00,000 and lost in cash $6.300.000. This year the loss in reserve for the same period has been only a little in excess of $3,100,000. In 1897 the first week in March seems to mark the high period of the bank reserves. After that and until well into the summer a stationary plane was reached. If the same thing is repeated this year the mon ey market will probably maintain a level somewhere near the present figures. but it is true that bankers are expecting a firm market within the next O0 days.
