Nearly two years ago quite a stir was made at Mills College, Cal., about the loss of a valuable diamond pin belonging to Miss Maud Sparks of Reno. Servants and pupils w r ere suspected, and much notoriety was given to the case in the papers. Miss Sparks was removed from the school in consequence of the sup posed theft. Lately, when one of her old gowns was being ripped, the pin was found in the drapery of the garment, where it had been safely concealed all this time. to a The Northern Pacific Railway Com pany has advanced a claim for all odd numbered sections of land in the ceded portion of the Cœur d'Alene Indian res ervation, which falls within the limits of its grant. The government paid the Indians $500,000 for these lands and $150,000 as a quit-claim for all right the Indians claimed in the lands in Wash ington State. Of these latter the rail road company got every odd-nnmbered section. It is not probable that the claim will be considered, as the terms of all grants say that lands in a state of reservation are excepted from the terms of a grant.

Assistant Secretary Craunse has issued a circular to customs officers as follows : " In all cases of seizure of spirituous liquors made on account of violations of customs laws in States wherein local laws forbid the public sale of spirituous liquors Collectors will hereafter hold the articles seized and report each case to this department for such action as will not contravene local statutes."

The Pres ident has not been consulted, and he will have to determine. I have requested sufficient force to protect. Indian lands until opened.

Please keep me advised." The census bureau has issued a bulle tin on the assessed valuation of the real and personal property of the several States and Territories. The bulletin shows that the assessed value of all prop erty has increased in the laet decade $7,344,597,261. Illinois shows an appar ent decrease of $59,200,000, because the State Board of Equalization declares the assessed value to be at 50 per cent., and in 1890 only 25 per cent, of the true value. Among the States showing in crease are the following : California, $486,524,000; Idaho, $19,140,000; Mon tana. $87,873,000; Nevada, $4,028,000; Utah, $79,933,000; Washington, $100, 985,000; Oregon, $113,504,000.

Williams, who went to Seal Island three months ago as a spe cial agent of the government, has just returned to Washington. He said that despite the presence of nearly a dozen American and English men-of war in and around Behring Sea illicit sealing was being carried on extensively. Pre vailing fogs in the sea made it easy for fast-sailing schooners to elude pursuit, and Williams is of the opinion that the illegal catch for the present season will number 20,000 seals. Of the 7,500 skins allowed privilege holders this year 6,300 caught by natives for food have already passed into the hands of the North Amer ican Commercial Company. This leaves only 1,200 seals to be captured between now and May 1 of next year; and, as that number will not supply the Aleuts on the Islands of St. Paul and St. George with food, the Commercial Company will have to keep the natives from starving. Williams is of the opinion that a couple of years' protection to seals is necessary in order to keep them from being exter minated. u There is no dav set CABLEGRAMS.
