New York dispatch 30th: No defin ite arragements have yet been made by the Northern Pacific with the Ore gon Railway & Navigation company. One of the directors of the Northern Pacific ro-td to day said that the Ore gon Navigation was negotiating with the Union Pacific and the Northern Pacific roads, and the directors of that corporation would lease their road to the one of the last two named which would pay the most. He further stated that the Northern Pacific direc tors are trying to find out what the plan of the Union Pacific directors is, and that the adjourned meeting of ti Northern Pacifieldirectors was to gain time.

Rounds, now government printer, and since iris accession to that great office has been managed by his son, S. P. Rounds. Jr, The Rounds house was well known throughout the printing offices of the northwest, and few' have not dealt with it more or less. Dressed Meats. The health officers of St. Paul have for some time suspected that western cattle afflicted with "lumpy jaw" were being killed at Minnesota Transfer and the dressed meat sold for consumption. Dr. Hoyt, the city health officer, by good detective work has managed to catch one butcher in the act, and he will.be fully prosecuted. Cattle own ers sell such diseased animals in St. Paul for a small price as they are not allowed in the Chicago market. More Shops. The Northern Pacific company has concluded the purchase of sixty acres of land in the northwestern part of St. Paul for the erection of new shops. The plans of these buildings have been drawn and approved by the offi cials of the Northern Pacific, and the work of construction will be commenc ed as soon as a few minor prelimina ries are arranged. Delighted. Cyrus W. Field is back to St. Paul after his trip over the Northern and Canadian Pacific roads. He is delight ed with what he saw, especially of the Northern Pacific country. He says there is not a mile of country along this road that will not bring a good carrying trade. All it needs is the people and they are coming. He says ;he political centre of the United States will yet be west of the Missis sippi. e Ravages of Wolves. The whole of Northern Wyoming, particularly that part of the country east of the Big Horn mountains, is in 1'ested by coyotes and the gray wolf. Starvation, doubtless, has driven them into a country wdiere they ean feed on calve«* and «sometimes full grown cattle. The loss from this source is greater than many suppose. The Conrad-Hurlbut Land and Cattle company alone estimate that they have lost three hundred head. There is only one effective method of deci mating wolves, and that is by poison ing them. All the cattle companies will furnish the necessary article— strychnine—to those who wish to em ploy their time in the pursuit of wolf pelts and the reward per head offered by the territory foi each wolf slain.— Buffalo Echo. Indian becomes a citizen The Indian as a Wire Puller. Mandan Pioneer: It is said that the ndians are by nature wire pullers and shrewd tacticians. They would, therefore, make good politicians. Some time ago, when Major Mc aughlin announced that the census >f the Sroux would be taken, the chiefs of the different bands set them selves to work vigorously to enlarge their respective bands. They schem ed and bribed and resorted to all sort» of shrewd tricks to have their bands enlarged, thinking, of course, that the dignity and power of a chief in the eyes of the government depended argely. on the number of braves in his band. A chief would, therefore, stealthilv visit the camp of a rival chief and take away by persuasion and promises all the families and teepes lie could pers »ade to go with him. In their rival at tempts to enlarge the bands, the filgh est diplomatic tactics were often dis played, showing that the Indian is by nature a tactician. Secret caucuses were often held, where strong combi nations were made between a certain number of chiefs. These combina tions were intended to work to the mutual advantage of all parties to the contract, and they resulted oftentimes very much likethe political combina tions of the white man in his territo rial orstate conventions. When the he will be . - an important factor in American poll-? tics.
