WAnsluicvroa, Feb. 27.- The house of a representatives today in its consideration of the Indian appropriation bill autho rized an innovation which, if concurred in by the senate, will be of great interest to Indian agents and ollicers of the regular army. After two hours' debate an amendment, proposled by Ilowers of California, was iadlpted. providing that the president ima delltail ltlicers of thel qiry to act as India n aents whenever vacancies occur in anit of the agencies. On motion ot Ilolman. holwever. at fur ther amendment was adtlopted, pro viding that such army otticers. while acting as Indian agents shall he undler the orders and direction of the secretary of the interior. How army illicers will t rerei-ve this innovation is a matter of great speculation among e(ongresanil today as otlicers of the rmgulai urniy have always been very jealonust of their independent pI.oition and may resent being transferred ferom the war depart inent antid placed under the onrder., of civilians of the tlute-riolr ,lhpnrtinelt.

It is Iperlintin t to state ill thianctitectioi l hat western anliny oltiters hav'e icoatitt t'ed that all the troubles with ludians for years past have been attributable to In dian agents aid that "tlhe Indian proh lemi" would never ice solved unless the wards of the nation were placed under the direct charge of the army otticers and the war departlment. The committee then passed on to the consideration of the clause apLpropriatiug $1i0),itK) for the construction and repair of Indian day antd industrial schools: and on motion o;f Lynch of Wisconsin an amendment was adopted providing that all school houses erected under this appropriation shall lie built on reservations or as near the boundary of a reservation as may be praticable. Reed of Maine presented his views on the Inudian problem and advocated the proposition increased by i1lO0,tt10, the appropriation for the iducation of the red men. The Indians must be educated as a whole. It was useless to take a child here and there andi after educating it to send it back to a savage tribe to again beciome a blanketed Indian.

OUR GERMAN TRADE. o RECIPROCITY AFFECTS A VERY SMALL PER CENT. OF OUR EXPORTS. C In 1891 the Exports to Germany of the t Artleles Affected by the Treaty Was t 06.3S4,3t7. and ou These the German o Tariff Is but tllghtly Lower. i Now that the president hlts proclaimed the new reciprocity treaty with (Ger- I many in all its details. there is sufficient u material at hand to fairly estimate its t value. In consideraltion for the free a entry into the United States of raw 1 sugar grown in (ermany, the imports e of which in 1891 aitniunted to *12.8ltl. t 080, this treaty agrees to aldmit free or t at reduced rates the following list of articles. To show the reductions made we give the old duties and the value of the various products affected which were exported t,f"'-,rntany in 1891: Iteci ill pirueit)y Iinmport.. t Ireatty. Il.

Of q this, only $l6.354I,17, or 1.1t per cent., o consisted of articles affected by the new treaty. The only articles which were formerly subnject to duty, but are now g free. ;re bed feathers, anise, caraway - and curnulin seeds, bark for tanning and oleomargarine anld similar oily sub stances. t, The duties on wheat :ctd flour. which MI were under the old law 5 and 10.3j if marks, respectively, are now :1.t0 and it 7.30 marks. The old duties were nearly prohibitive under ordinary conditions. Since equal reductions are lmade on wheat alnd itnr imported from. Austr'ia Hungary, the advantages which the hilt ter has over the Unitedt States on ac ,r count of tier close proximliity tot (erunllny will give her the bulk of the trade. t This applies eqiually to rye and iauts. iUnder these cirnllutanctles we cannll)ot expect to meaterially increase our exlports of these products to iernlttany. 1To say trothing of the duties imlpoel, the (hi cr:teter of our harley, alt aunli n hoips is such that. as ill the past, ewe will i r export Inone of th.l:so products to (er Smany. In fact. Uermnany, besides sup plying her ownl markets, is a large cx porter of these articles to Great Brliai i and other countries. Thesnmall reduction made in the dutie I on sawed lumber and timber prepared otherwise than by hewing will have very little favorable effect on our exlports. The only reduction made in the dutiesll on live anituals is that upon oxen: but our exports of ooxen cannot be large, since last year only $4.L,5,970 of all kinds of cattle were exported to Germany. The duty on fresh meats, except pork, has been reduced five marks. in 1891 we did not export a lpound of fresh mec:t. The reduction of a little over one-half a cent per pound in the duty will not build up any considerable trade. Germany removed the prohibition from American pork on the assurance of the United ;tates that no diseased pork would be exported. The high prices prevailing before American pork was allowed to enter, equal to about twelve cents per pound, stimulated our trade for a time until the German farmors reduced the price, when it again fell off. The high duty, coupled with the fact that Germany is a large producer of pork, will naturally pre vent our exports from increasing to astn considerabl. extent. On prepared meat-. except bacon, and by this is meant anl meats, whether salted, pickled or canned, i te reduction is one third of a cent p r pound. This nlaty have some favorable effect on our exports; but the increase cannot be large. The duty on bacon re mains at the old rate of twenty marks. On the whole, therefore, the reduc tions in duty on less thIan 46.Z4li,317 of our prodnets, in consideration for the fre admuission of over $l .8l91,000 of (er man sugar into the United States, are i not as largo ti ought to be unule. The GiermLan go.,erntuent was doubtless in formed that the feeling prevailing among the plxople of the United States against the roimpositiou of the duty on sugar was so strong that our government would not attempt it, and accordingly granted the slight reductions noted above. In view of the heavily increased duties imposed by the McKinley bill upon Ger man products, which in thecase of wool ens, hosiery,cottons and liuensfrequent ly ranged from 50 to 100 per cent., it was useless to expect any great concessions from that power. Mr. Blaine was there fore forced to accept what he could get. In other words, so far as Germany is con cerned, the "reciprocity club" was not Stffectually wielded by the United States. r The list of articles prohibited in the 1 proclamation of the president includes many things on which no change in the duty has been made. Thus, raw flax, bran, horsehair, agricultural products not otherwise provided for, raw hides, charcoal and wool are free of duty, with out regard to the country from which they are imported. Similarly cheese, fruits antd nuts, buckwheat, bacon and all live an.intdil, except oxen, are duti able at the same rate whea Imported from the United 8tates as when im. ported from other countries. The only reason conceivable for in cluding these products in the "reci procity" treaty was doubtless to create a favorable impression here by a large showing. This is nothing but "bhun combe," pure and simple. The failure on the part of Mr. Blaine to secure a amore favorable treaty was not his fault. lie has been hampered by the limitations iniromwd by the "reciprocity" act. This latest example of its work shows, as has often been aassrted in these columns, that as a means for increasing our trade abroad the reciprocity law is a failure. What our secretary of state needs is at greater list of articles on which to make trades.-New York Commercial Bulle tin. STEEL RAIL TRUST PROFITS.
