Washington, Nov, 2. Tho Commissioner
of tho General Land Ofllco, Hon. N. C.
McFarlnnd, In hia annual report to the
Secretory of tho Interior states that the
disposals of public lands during tho year
embraced 19,030,709 acres, and of Indian
land 399,235 acres. This amount was an
Increase over 1883 of about flvo million
acres, and over 1881 of about
eight million acres. Tho receipts from all
sources in connection with tho disposal
of public lands wero $11,083,479, and from
sales of Indian lands 1025,401. Tho public
binds wero disposed of as follows: Public
sales, 2TO,0G0 acres; private entries, 2,917,95)
acres; preemption entries, 2,235,71 0 acres
mineral entries, 31,520; homestead entries.
8,171,914; timber culturo entries, :i,110,9:)
entries with military bounty land warrants,
45,414; entries with land claim scrips,
Tho total number of entries and filings
postal during tho year was 251,(.s",
aggregating 90,000,000 acres, Tho inercaso
in the number of claims recorded hi 1S.'J,
was 55,543 over tho year 1882, Tho Commissioner
states that be is satislled that
preemption filings are made, or procured to
bo made, to a groat extent for Bpoeulatlve
purposes, and renews tho recommendation
that tho preemption law be repealed.
Tho commutation fcaturo of
tho homestead law is open to tho
same abuses as tho preemption law. h
urges that tho homestead laws bo amende
fjo as to require proof of actual residence
and improvement for a period of not 1cm
than two years beforo a homestead entry
may bo commuted by cash payments. The
report furtlicr recommends a total repeal
of tho timber culture law on account of Itv
inherent defect. Tho construction ol
1,210 miles of hind grant railroad was reported
during tho year, making a total of
17,449 miles of road reported as construct! d
under all grants to June 80, 18815. Th"
question of declaring a forfeiture of these
grants to whero tho railroads have not been
constructed in tho prescribed time, is deem
ed an appropriate ono for legislation. An
incre&so in the salaries of tho Commissioner
and various Bureau officers is recommended.
lie also urges a largo increase in tho
clerical forco of the oillco. Two hundred
clerks of the higher grades ho says are
needed at once. As a reason for this large
iucreaso in tho forco, the Commissioner
notes an iucreaso of eighty-two per cent in
1683 in the amount of now business brought
into the ofllco over that of 1881, und of
thirty-nine per cent over tho preceding
year, while tho increase in clerical forco
allowed by the last annual appropriation
wus but ten per cent over the preceding
year. There are now pending beforo tho
ofllco 600,000 claims of record in some stage
of Inception or progress under general laws.
Fending agricultural claims nlono Involve
adjustment of title to 1R,(KX),000 acres, and,
if one-half of these claims should bo perfected
into title, It would tako tlio present
force employed upon this work three years
to complete tho adjustments, leaving the
whole volume of busbies that might come
up within that period unprovided for,

OBERL1N FANATICS
Tlio Extraordinary Iiawmlt ttrowlns
Out of Liquor Kfllliitr.
Cleveland, O., Nov. 2, The trial of the.
suit of P. E. Bronson against Rev, James
Lrant for 130,000 damages has just been
commenced in the Court of Common Pleas.
Mr. Bronson, who was some time ago tho
proprietor of a drug store in tho village of
Oborlin, whero, on account of tho numerous
colleges located in the place, tho sale of
intoxicating liquors was strictly forbidden,
was Bovoral times accused of selling whisky
contrary to tho wishes of tho community,
thereby incurring their U will, which
finally culminated in tho firing aud
destruction of his storo, Tho present suit
grows out of a sermon preached by tho
Bovenmd defendant, Feb. 2-i, lbS2, which
was afterwards published in tho Oborlin
News, of which tho following is a brief extract:
"Ghastly deeds of tho post still
stretch out thoir skinny hands and hush
thee, good men shall breath freer at thy
death. tThy monument shall be a testimony
that a plague is stayed, aud, as thy
guilty spirit is homo on tho blast towards
tho gates of hell, tho hideous shrieks of
those whom thou hast ruined shall plcrco
thee." Bronson claims he only sold liquors
as medicine, and that on account of tho
sermon his character and business have
been irretrievably ruined. Therefore ho
prays for damages.
A TERRIBLE DEED.

horrified spectators to tho Bjot whero the
boy lay dead on tho ground with blood and
brains oozing from his head. Tho work

now that Pvo killed him," added Peterson.
Tho latter took his departure, and, although
tho rhole force of police is scouring tho

crime.

ZOUA BURNS.
Wo present abovo an excellent portrait
of tho unfortunato young girl whoso sad
fate and tho mystery surrounding it havo
within tho past throo weeks awakened so
an interest. Following, as it
did, closoly upon tho heels of the butcheries
of Roso Amblor, in Connecticut, and Ada
Atkinson, in Indiana, tho assassination of
Zora Burns, with its many points of similarity
to tho two proceeding tragedies, has
taken rank among tho most notod nnd
sensational crimes ever committed in tho
country. As will bo seen from tho dispatch
printed below, tho investigation of
the crimo and tho search for tho murderer
havo so far resulted in precisely nothing,
savo tho creation of suspicion against a
man who has hitherto enjoyed tho respect
of tho community, and who is associated in
tho crimo by only a slender thread of purely
circumstantial evidenca Ed.
Lincoln, HL, Nov. a Tho verdict of
tho Coroner's Jury lias caused much indignation

tho jurors, after which Carpenter should
bo taken from tho jail and hanged, tho
decorated jurors to act as pall bearers.
Four of tho jury Iwliovo Carientcr had n
hand In the bloody affair. Tho preliminary
hearing will take plaoo Saturday. The
verdict of tlio jury was "killed by an unknown
person.

t aud Tnk) Leave of tho Army.
j Washington, D. a, Oct 2. General
t Sherman relinquished command of tho
Army to Lieutenant General Sheridan, and
afterward, accompaidcd by his successor
and Secretary Lincoln, paid his respects to
tho President In his official order he
thanked tlio officers and men of tho Army
for fidelity to tho trust imiosed upon them
during his Incumbency, and insured them
ho would watch their future progress with
parental solicitude. In his annual report,
submitted to tho Secretary of War, General
Sherman states that ho regards the Indians
as substantially eliminated from the
problem of tho Army. Thero may be
gposniodic and temporary alarm, but such
Indian wars as havo hitherto disturlwd
public penco and tranquility are not probable.
He also renows his recommendation
of last year favoring tho abandonment of
I tho minor military posts, and that certain
strategic posts bo enlarged, with permanent
barracks to accommodate snitablo garrisons.

London, Nov. 2.Tho corrctpondent of

with Marquis Tseng, the Chinese Ambassador.
Tho Marquis stated that tho
statements made by Premier Ferry beforo
tho Chamber of Deputies on tlie alleged
authority of Mr. Tricon wero mischievous
misstatements concocted in Paris for political
effect Tlio uso of tho name of LI
Hung Chang was unauthorized and Ill-advised,
inasmuch as Li Hung Chang, being
his personal friend and relative, would
novcr havo given utternnco to such expressions
as were credited to him. It was
moreover nn absurdity to suppose that tho
Chinese Government would give contradictory
instructions to Li Hung Chang nnd
to its representative at Paris.
