Of Interest to Coiitraetors.
A new system of obtaining proposals
for supplying miscellaneous articles need
ed at the various public buildings situated
at different parts of the country, has been
inaugurated at the Treasury Department.
Hit bet to it has been the custom to receive
bids from residents of the cities in which
the biddings needing tile supplies are sit
uated. This was found to work badly,
especially in New York, where it was
discovered that in some instances the gov
ernment was compelled to pay more for
the goods than they would have loin open
market. Now competition is thrown
open and a resident in Washington can
make proposals on goods for buildings in
San Francisco or New York, or vice versa.
A specific list has been prepared of the
items for w hich proposals are asked at the
ditVerent bindings, with a blank column
opposite for tlu* bidder's name and his
office. These can be obtained at the
Treasury Department by any honna fide
bidder.
MoiiIhuu Indians.
Washington special: The Interior De
partment lias autisipated as well as it can
the action of Congress on the report of the
Senate special committee, Messrs. Harri
son, Ingalls and Jones, relative to the
Crow Indians in Montana, and will do all
that it is able to do, without legislation, to
relieve these Indians. Mr. Sparks, at the
request of the I ndian office, made a tele
graphic order a day or two since lur a
series of surverys upon the eastern end of
the Crow reservation, what is known now
as the Northern Cheyenne reservation.
These surveys are being made for the pur
pose of allotting the lands to the Indians
for agricultural purposes, that they mav
go on and make such improvements as
Congress contemplates aiding them to
j make in time.

Miss t l.KVKLAXU'S LETTERS.
j This l.iterar.v Lady Has Rruliabl.v Emiti.l
j Her iM.HJnh at l.ast.
| It is expected that Miss Cleveland will
(arrive in Chicago within the next few
j weeks to enter upon her duties as editor of
the Literary Life. The negotiations
which resulted in lier undertaking the
work were carried on principally by letter.
In her reply to the first letter in which the
subject was broached, Miss Cleveland
says: *1 quite agree with y our idea, and
could not fail to have much enthusiasm in
the consecration of my energies towards
its realization. While, however, ir.y possi
ble embarkation in such an enterprise as
the literary management of such a periodi
cal would necessarily involve the sacrifice
of other plans and interests, with my idea
of the position you propose to me, I could
admit no confiicting or dividing interest to
interfere with that work."
In a subsequent letter Miss Cleveland
says: "Y our letter has been carefully con
sidered by me. While I may not he |xi*
sessed of that energy and enterprise which
is characteristic of the West, yet, should I
go to reside there, there is no telling what
personal contract with your people mav
result in. Chicago seems to me to have
as high a destiny as the western metropolis
of art as it is now the metropolis of com -
inerce. I have often wondered why Chi
cago and the west did not support a dozen
at least of high class monthlies. I have
heard so much of Chicago, its architecture,
its boulevards, its parks, etc., that l am
most anxious to meet its enterprising peo
ple. If I assume the editorial manage
ment of your magazine, I must have abso
lute control of its literary department, and
I must resign all other work, for 1 do not
agree with your idea that I could while
editing the same, still pursue my present
plans and studies. I could reserve noth
ing of energy in other directions. To
build any expectation on that ground
would he vain."
EOPVKKiBT DECISION.
It is Hehl I» 1m "Piracy" to stell YVItlioiil
an Author's Consent.
Judge Hammond, of the United States
Court, at Memphis, Tenu., forwarded to be
filed his opinion involving the copyright
of James G. Blaine's "Twenty Years in
Congress." The case was argued before
Judge Hammond wl, • holding court loi
Judge Sage in Ohio, and is said to go>
further than any previous decision in pro
tection of an author's property in hooks.
The Bell Publishing Company sell Blaine's
book only by subscription and has done
everything possible to keep it away from
the general trade, but an agent to whom
they sent copies for delivery sold liooks to
dealers anil pocketed the money. Some
copies of this purchase were procured hi
an Ohio merchant without notice of fraud,
and Judge Hatnmond restrains him from
selling them, holding it "piracy" in copy
right to sell without an author's consent
surreptitiously obtained copies of a genuine
print as much as it is to sell titilawfulli
printed copies. The opinion holds that it
is the duty of a proposed dealer, when he
knows a hook is sold only by subscription,
to make inquiries as to the authority of
anyone offering to sell in any other meth
od amt the failure to make such inquiry is
equivalent to notice of any fraud. Thc
act of Congress is held to have conferred
on tlie author a monopoly of the sale,
which is itself a property incident, and one
that is entitled to be protected in the ex
clusive use of that which i- exclusively
his.
