All contracts made by him will be faithfully carried out by this office. TICE - PRESTIDENT HIENI)R[('CKS DEAD). Another of America's great men has left the nation and the world to mourn his loss. The cause of his death was paralysis of the brain. Thomas Andrew Hendricks was born in Muskingum county, Ohio. on September 7.1819. In 1822 his father moved to Shelby county, Indiana. Thomas graduated at South Hanover college, in 1841. studied law in Chambersbairg, Pa.,and was there admitted to the bar in 1813; but he returned to Indiana to engage in his professional work. IMr. Hend:ricks I was elected to the legislature of Indiana in 18-:8; he was a member of the constitutional convention of his state in 1850. He represented the Indianapolis district in congress two terms, from 1851 to 1855: and was commissioner of the general land office from 1855 to 1859; and from 1863 to 1869 he represented his state in the United States senate; and his great abilities soon made him the democratic leader in that body. An improvement has recently been introduced at the Edgar Thompson Steel works, Pennsylvania, which bids I fair to cause Bessemer to entirely t supplant crucible.'-It is claimed that I Bessemer steel can be made for 1 cent 1 to 1I cents a pound, while crucible I steel costs 11 cents and upwards. Neow Northwest: Among other reasons offered for having an extra session of the Legislature this winter, is the desirability of repealing the salary bill for county officers. We C doubt if the same members who en acted the law last session would now meet in extra session, before the sal- C ary bill has been tested thoroughly, I would consent to repeal it. By the time of the meeting of the next regn- E lar session, we believe the demerits of the system will be so obvious that it I will then be repealed. If not, it will t be because experience has demonstrat- r ed its merits. There is no argument t to offer now for its repeal that did not exist at the time it was passed, and, 2 practically the same . membership I would exist. The Philadelphia Press seems to t have some knowledge of the Western man and his capabilities intellectually: 1 "The Western man, portly, clear- s skinned and keen-eyed, may never t have read a page of Browning, and i would not give a bushel of wheat for s all Emmerson's primal truths, but he i, can give you promptly a reason for f the faith that is in him on evolution, . or the scientific development of soil, t or railroads, or of races, in words as I direct and strong as bullets. The o whole growth of the Middle and b Western States since the war has , been coarser, perhaps, and less schol- b arly than that of New England, but e more pithy and more masculine. It is ( better suited to grapple with the pres- a ent occasion and wrest it to its will." Commissioner Coleman's annual re port is out. It says one of the great needs of the agricultural interests of the United States is a better under standing and more intimate relations between the several agricultural and experiment stations, and a more prac tical co-operation between these in stitutions and the Department of Ag riculture. The colleges endowed by Congress are separately carrying on experiments without any central head through which to report and compare results. He submits that the Department should have full and 1 ample means to avail itself of the ad vantages offered by these institutions. He favors the law authorizing the Department to slaughter animals af- I fected by pleuro-pneumonia, and I strongly advocates the institution of ( "arbor days" in all the States. From General Grant's account of the Chatanooga campaign, published in the November Century, we extract the following: "There was no time during the rebellion that I did not think, and often say, that the south was more to be benefited by defeat than the north. The latter had the people, the institutions and the terri tory, to make a great and prosperous nation. The former was burdened with an institution abhorrent to all civilized people not brought up under it, and one which degraded labor, kept it in ignorance, and enervated the governing class. With the out side world at war with this institution, they could not have extended their ter ritry. The labor of the country was not skilled, nor allowed to become so. The whites could not toil without be coming degraded, and those who did I were denominated "poor white trash." This system of labor would soon have i exhausted the soil and left the people poor. The non-slaveholders would have left the country, and the small slaveholder must have sold out to his more fortunate neighbors. Soon the slaves would have outnumbered the r masters, and not being in sympathy i with them, would have risen in their i might and exterminated them. The war was expensive to the south as well t as the north, both in blood and treas- c ure, but it was worth all it cost." r AN AlISURI) RUMOR. ABrandon, (N. W. T.) Special says: Since the execution of ,Biel at Regi- I na, there has boeen a groat deal of cx citement, not only here, but through out the entire country.

Be this as it mnay, there are a n great many speaking out now, who before the exeution were silent, and t; their expressed opinions are that the ti dominion government, and not Riel, s: was the cause and effect of the late ci Saskatchewan rebellion, and to it n alone is due the punishment which it h has already meted out and is meting c, out to the half-breeds and Indians in h the Saskatchewan district. There are e: a large number of half-breed families to in the district who have not a house sI to live in, nor even clothing to keep I1 them half comfortable through the gi winter. These people were comforta- de bly circumstanced before the rebellion, tU but their goods and chattles were de stroyed by Middleton's soldiers by or- hi der of the government at Ottawa. le --LIEUT. ---LTZ- - IIO t LIEUT. SCIIULi'ZS MISS s O:. m The following letter has been ro ceived by Secretary Bayard from Lieut. W. W. Schultz's U. S.

My route from St. Petersburg was the one usually followed in summer from Moscow, over Nishni Novgorod, Ka zen, Perm and Tinmon. From the latter place to Tomsk the travel by steamer occupied ten (lays. From Tomsk the time was unusually long, the roads being the worst known for go years. Owing to this unexpected de lay on the latter part of the journey, I m shall have to wait here until the win ter roads open to Yakutsk, probably in the early part of November. I shall then proceed to Yakutsk as rap idly as possible, fit out the expedition c for the north coast, and returning by the delta, try to reach Irkutsk before the spring break-up. Cold weather li has now set in near Yakutsk, and the be only practicable summer travel by boat is interrupted. The usual visits b with the officials of Irkutsk have been exchanged. The newly appoint- t . ed governor general of East Siberia, Count Ignatieff, is particularly kind and courteous, and promises me all hi: necessary official assistance in my journey to the north. qd The letter is dated Irkutsk, East Siberia, Sept. 25, 1885. --o--- a RESOLUTIONS OF THE CATTLEMEN we offl The committee on resolutions of the o0f cattle convention at St. Louis, passed oil the following: m1 After citing the burdens of the ani- tal mal industry as inopperative, it re- wl commends that a committee be ap- fir pointed to draft a bill to be submitted At to congress in the name of the associ- frc ation, providing for the appointment by the president of the United States an of a commission of five experienced an and practical stock breeders, to whom frc full power shall be given in the mat- me ter of regulating quarantine and the wi. treatment of diseases among cattle, es] even to the extent of purchase of in- qu fected herds.

[1 - s [From our Regular Correspondent.] e Wasmio.STo, Nov. 21, 1885. e QThle members of the 49th Congress Y are arriving in the city daily. They Sare talking about the Speakership e contest, about revising the rules of I the Lower House. about the Senate's oppoition to Presidential appoint ments, and about the questions to be presented this winter to the new Con gress. While it is understood that the Democratic majority will re-elect Mr. Carlisle Speaker, the Republicans will give the complimentary nomination f to one of their brethren. As the Member thus selected becomes the virtual leader of the minority, a certain interest centres in the coming action of the House Repuclidan caucus. Several names are mentioned for this honor. They are Messrs. Reed of Maine, Hiscock of New York. Long of Massachusetts, and McKinley of Ohio. The two former are really the only candidates, and it is thought that Mr.Roed will get the nomination. Being more aggressive and more courageous in the expression of his opinions thanzMr. Hiscock, he is the Snatural loader of the Republican 1 minority. MIr. Reed is a ready, irrepressible i talker, and spends a large part of his tine in Congress on his feet, either in i sneaking or in button-holing his confreres. He knows well how to utilize his own information, and lih, has a sarcastic style that is heighten ed by an exasperating coolness. Both he and Mr. I-iscock are men of experience, each having served several terms in the House. Mr. Hiscock is slow in his movements and methods. He does not speak often, and has no gift for shining fire of an acrimonious debate. He is a rich man, and during the winter givest fine dinners J The Republican leaders are all high-tariff advocates. All of the leaders on the Democratic side, with the exception of Mr. Randal, are pro nounced revenue reformers. There fore the battle in the House between protection and reform of the tariff, I promises to be fought on strict party There is so much complaint against the rules of the House of Reoprasent atives, that efforts will be made early F in the sonsion to improve them. Congressman Springer says he has spoen months in divising a set of rules that will facilitate legislation.Through the present rules the most positive wi!l of the majority can be defeated by the minority, and the interests of the many subordinated to the schemes of a few. The average day in the House is devoted to the question iWhat shall we do today ?" The gentleman from Illinois says his plan of revision opens the way for the E prompt transaction of business which meets the approval of a majority. He is willing to trust a majority of the representatives of the people. The extent to which the Republi can Senators will oppose the Adminis tration in the matter of appointments will be determined by the caucus to be held in about a week. A Repub lican Senator remarked. I do not believe in opposing the President because he is a Democrat. There are two things to be considered in an appointee whose name comes before the Senate for confirmation: Is he an able man, and will he honestly and efficiently administer the affairs of his office. He didpot think the question of politics should be consi dered. "Still," continued the Senator, "President Cleveland has introduced a new element in stating that he would remove no one except for 2 offensive partisanship. To remove an offensive Republican and appoint an offensive Democrat in his place, is, to my mind, inconsistent, and I shall take that question into consideration when appointments come up for con- C firmation. I will agree with the Administration when I can, and differ from it when I must." The President is working hard day and night on his message to Congress, and annual reports are coming in from various branches of the Govern- F ment. Goneral Sheridan's report will be read with special interest, especially his treatment of the Indian F question. He puts himself in accord with those who have contended for a humane policy. He advocates giving the Indians land in severalty as soon as possible, and takes the ground S' that the army is not the proper body to intrust permanently with the manage ment of the red-men. INDIAN TROUBLES. A special telegram from Miles City to the Pioneer Press, dated Nov. 26, says: "The troops that left Fort Keogh Sunday night were met by S White Hawk, a Cheyenne courier, on - Monday, when within thirty miles of the Cheyenne agency. White Hawk delivered dispatches to Major Sny- p der, Fifth infantry, in command, to stating that four companies of the H First cavalry from Fort Custer had g arrived at the agency of the Rosebud, y that the disturbances had been settled lo without trouble and the services of co Maj. `Snyder's command were not Z needed. Accordingly these troops re turned, arriving here today. Major Snyder received further orders, and with aids and a small escort renewed the trip to the Cheyenne agency. sThe trouble is that Pine Ridge visitors i crowded in on issue day, wanted rations, were again refused, and shot into the agents house, but harmed s nobody. They reported now, with strong color of fact, that the Pine e Ridge visitors have nabbed five -hundred horses belonging to the Northern Cheyennes and skipped. a The troops at Keogh are all under orders to be in readiness to march, 1 The horse stealing complication is likely to make further trouble.
