of Congress.
WASHINGTON, Aug. 1.—Senator Frye,
from the special committee on Pacific
railroads, reported back favorably with­
out amendment the Outhwaite bill for
funding that debt. The bill was accom­
panied by along report. Senator Frye
stated that the committee had found the
Union Pacific and the Central branch
thereof an easy matter to investigate, but
not so with the Central Pacific road,
which they had not yet reported on. He
fonnd the present worth of those debts
to be nearly $94,000,000, on which about
$15,000,000 interest had been paid at 5 five
"Percent. On their receipt the subject
had been referred to certain insurance
^actuaries, and on their report Senator
Frye saw the committee might offer an
amendment to this bill including the
Central Pacific railroad in its
provisions. The report is signed by
every member of the committee.
Accompanying the reports were a num­
ber of memorials from various boards of
trade in the West asking for the passage
of this bill. The report says the bill
will terminate all controversies relating
to the existence of a tax and sinking
fund, and will give to the United States
payment of over $10,000,000 on the prin­
cipal before maturity, and a semi-annual
interest of $12,000,000. It will also
give large additional security, insuring
the ultimate payment of the entire debt,
as the United States will if the bill, is
is adopted have a mortgage on the entire
system and all its property. The bill
also adopts only a practical course for re­
press of wrongs done the company and
the United States by compelling the com­
pany to allow the attorney general to use
its name in bringing suit to recover any­
thing belonging to it.

reported intrenched in rocks and resist­
ing. Lee, upon arrival, found they had
fled. The command followed several

and west. The line to Apache has been
down several days.".

delegation of the principal merchants
and foreign consuls left for the capital
July 20 to endeavor to have the decree
annulled. The free port was originally
decreed to be for ten years, but barely
six have passed, and these foreigners
who were induced thereby to invest large
capital in merchandise and planting will
lose heavily if the free zone is abolished
so suddenly.

sundry civil bill appropriating $250,000

NEW YORE, Aug. 1.—It has leaked out
that Pat Killen has made arrangezrients
to force Jake Kilrain to flght for the
championship, and his backers will make
the stakes as large as Kilrain desires. A
prominent sporting man in this city Sat­
urday received a letter from Killen'e
backers in St. Paul to this effect, and
saying he would come to New York in
September with any quantity of money.
When the representative of Kilrain's
backer was spoken to about the matter
he said: "Neither Kilrain nor Fox will
pay any attention to Killen's challenge,
for, as I understand it, the St. Paul
slasher wants Queensberry rules to gov­
ern. We won't have anything to do with
Killen under Queensberry rules. All
championship battles for the belt must
be under prize ring rules."
"But suppose Killen challenges for a
prize ring rule flght?"
''That will be different. If he does so
it is probable he will be accommodated."

Other Countries Said to Have Been More
Benefitted Than Germ any by Williams'
LONDON, July 1.—What advantages
have been gained by the emperor's trip
to St. Petersburg are clearly on the side
of Russia, both in respect to weak­
ening the triple alliance and i& re­
gard to the settlement of the Bul­
garian question in the near
future and to the satisfaction of the czar,
and it does not now appear that the
German emperor scored a single point.
Austria is certain to interpose objections
to the predominance of Russia in set­
tling matters in Bulgaria, and it is
difficult 14 see how Germany, in
view of the promises made by Em­
peror William to the czar, can support
Austria's claims. All things considered,
it is quite apparent that the imperial
meeting has been barren of the beneficial
results to Germany which Germans be­
lieved would follow.

that the department has received no offi­

said he, "do we expect to have any state­
ment from the commissioners unless
they shall be able to arrive at a result, or
until it shall become apparent that they
will not be able to come to a conclusion.
We had no intimation that the treaty
would not be signed."
"And if it should not be signed, what
could the department do about it?"
"Absolutely nothing. The language
of the law is very explicit that the agree­
ment must be signed by two thirds to be
valid, and if two thirds shall not sign
there can be no treaty. The efforts of
the department under the law which
authorizes the appointment of the com­
mittee will have to come to an end."
Senator Sabin expressed great surprise
that the Indians had refused to sign, and
could hardly credit the report. All of
