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.

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. The as
sessed valuation per capita, exclusive of
Oklahoma, in 1890 was $3,876.20, an in
crease of about $50 over 1880.
William H. 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
