ITniv Frank' of Missouri Woulil Arrange Malic. Watiinton, D.'c. 4. Tn tho honss, Tuesday, Frank of Misouri, introduced for reference, a bill making an appor tionment of the representatives in con gress under the eleventh census. It provides that after the i!d of March, 189:1, the luiuse of representatives shall be compoKOil of 3"50 members, to be ap portioned among tho several states as follows: Alabama 9 Montana 1 Arkansas B Nebraska 6 California 7 Nevada 1 Colorado 3 New Hampshire.. 2 Connecticut 4 New Jersey 8 Delaware 1 New York 34 Florida 2 North Carolina... 9 Georgia 11 North Dakota.... 1 Idaho.! 1 Ohio .'....21 Illinois 22 Oregon ..... 2 Indiana 18 Pennsylvania ilfl Iowa 11 Rhode Island 2 Kansas 8 South Carolina. .. 7 Kentucky 11 South Dakota 3 Louisiana (!

The population of no dis trict shall he greater nor less than the average population of the several dis tricts of the state of by more than 8,000. Tho districts shall bo equal in number to tho representatives to which such state may bo entitled in congress, no district electing more than one repre sentative. Karly Reapportionment Probable. There is no doubt of an apportion ment bill passing the house at an early ilav. J. he lammnny influences in .New York are doing what 1 hey can to impede action by insisting that there shall be a recount in New York before an appor tionment The discussion of tho subject among the .Democrats, however, snows that a number of the influential ones among them favor early action on ap portionment in order to correct inequali ties which are clearly shown by the census. Mr. Crisp, of Georgia, snvs that there is no reason to expect a light over a re apportionment, since there will lie noth ing in it, if it is fairly done, that any reasonable man could object to. It is also significant that Mr. Crisp admits that the senate may pass the election law. INTERNATIONAL COPYRIGHT. Tile Ilouae Republican Kin-cecil in Uring- Ing it lTp for l'ttHHugM. The previous question was ordered in the house Monday on the international copyright bill, lOii toi. This indicates the passage of the measure by the house. It is a new bill, reported from the committee on patents last session by Mr. Simonds, and will have to go to the senate, where its f l iemls are assured of its final passage. The copyright men here are feeling very much elated over their success. The proposition of tho bill is to per mit foreigners to take American copy right on the same basis as American citizens in three cases: First, When the nation of the foreigner permits copy right to American citizens on substan tially tho same basis as its own citizens: second, when the nation of the foreigner gives to American citizens copyright jirivileges similar to those provided for in this bill; third, when tho nation of the foreigner is a party to an interna tional agreement providing for reciproci ty in copyright, by tiie terms of such agreement tho United States can be come a party thereto at its pleasure. A subsidiary but important proposition Vf the bill is that all books copyrighted under the proposed act shall 1 e printed from type pot within tli United States, or from plates made therefrom.

Interview With General Miles on the In dian Situation. ' Washington, Dec. 4.- Gen. Miles who has betn in Washington siijce luet Saturday night in daily consultation with Secretary Proctor, (Jen. Schofield and Secretary Noble, upon matters re lating to the Indian situation in the northwestJeft for Chicago Tuesday. The general believes that danger is im minent. "Tho seriousness of the situration," lie savs, "has not been exaggerated. The disaffection is more widespread than it has been at any time tor years. The conspiracy extends to more differ ent tribes than have heretofore been hostile, but that are now in full sym pathy with each other, and are scattered over a larger area of country than in the whole history of Indian warfare. Jt is a more comprehensive plot than anything ever inspired by ttie riophet 'i'ecunist'h or even Pontine. The causes of this difficulty are easy of location. Insufficient food supplies, religious de lusion and the innate disposition of the savage to go to war must be lield re sponsible. " Are the campaign preparations on the part of the government complete. S"' was asked. "Mot quite replied the general. "Everything will be ready in a few days, though. Troops and supplies are en route, ana will no available very speedily. All (hat is possible is being done to encourage the loyal and reduce the number and influence of the hostile, and in this way an outbreak may be averted. I sincerely hope there will be no hostilities, for a general uprising would be a most serious affair. " " How many Indians will you have to contend withy" "Altogether there are in the north west about i!0,t)00 who are aHeeUd by the Messiah craze; that means fully (i,000 fighting meu. Of this number at least one-third would not go on the warpath, so that leaves us with about 4,)0o adversaries. There are 6,00(1 other Indians in Indian territory who will have to be watched if active opera tions take place. Four thousand In dians can m iko au immense amount ot trouble. lint a tithe of that number were concered in the Minnesota mas sacre, yet they killed more tnan aou settlers in a very brief space of time. " What is the total strength ot your force ? " - (Jen. Mile1? avoided the question somewhat by referring to the great necessity which existed for more cav alry. Altogether, he said, we nave about 2,000 mounted men. We have plenty of infantry, but von cannot catch mounted Indians with white foot sol diers. The infantry had one or two good fights in 1KT(I and 77, but such en gagements are rare in frontier warfare:" "Is it not a novel proceeding for In dians to go on the warpath at the begin ning of winter?" "Yes, in some respects it is, ''replied the general. "Their argument is good, though. They are better armed now than they ever were, and their supply of horses is all that could bo desired. Every buck has a Winchester rifle, and he knows how to use it. In the matter of snbsistance they are taking but little risk. Th(jy can live on cattle just as well as they used to on buffalo, and the numerous horse ranches will furnish them with fresh stock when cold and starvation rain their mounts, The northern Indian is hardy, aud can suffer a great deal. These hostiles have been starved into fighting, and they will prefer to die fighting rather than starve peaceably. I hope tho problem ijiay be solved without bloodshed, but such a happy ending to the trouble seems im probable. An outbreak would cost the lives of a great many brave men and the destruction of hundreds of homes in the northwest. If peace is possible we will have it. " They Have Plenty to V'.iil. Acting Indian Commissioner Pelt has received a letter from Sin-cial Census Agent Lea, at the Pine Kidge' agency, declaring that he has yet to see the first family upon Pine Kidge reservation that show the least sign of suffering for food. Don't JSIair.6 the Indians. Pittsburg, Dec. 4. den. Miles passed through the city on his way to the seat of tho Indian trouble in the west. In an interview (Jen. Miles said he did not blame'the Indians for the existing state of affairs. He said the post traders have been cheating the Indians by holding back their rations. He said the Messiah craze is duo to Mormon influence. He believes there will lie an out break this winter and says he has orders to protect the whites at all hazards. BUFFALO BILL'S OPINIONS. The Trouble n Seheute of Sitting Hull and Others ' Fighting Probable. Bismarck, N. Dak., Dec. 4. Owing to a delay of trains Buffalo Bill did not start for the east till about noon Tnes day. He proceeded directly to Chicago for a conference with (Jen. Miles. In conversation here he expressed the opin ion that all the trouble with the In dians is caused by Sitting Bull and a few other crafty leaders who are work ing upon the superstitions nature of their followers for the pun of bring ing the government to terms on the subject of back dues and increased rations. He believes in dealing rigorously with the reds when thev liegin these tactics, though, ho says, the government should live up to its" obligations very strictly and promptly on acconnt of the sus picious feeling entertained by the In dians that the white people ar trying to cheat them. Mr. Cody does not look for an nnrisinir. but thinks the military will hnve to lie kept on hand in full strength till the religious erase subsides, or thera would be trouble in the surina- wWh would l apt to bring on war. Public tiiiinion is dividiid regarding the wi'dia of arresting Sitting Bull. Most fron tiersman believe that his arrest would cause au uprising. Locailtte Which are Safe. Pierre, S. Dak. Dec. 4.

They advise all settlers to procure good rifles and plenty ot ammunition tins winter, because the danger of an outbreak in the spring is great. Their letters are m the nature of a public assurance of safe ty to all people east of the Missouri river in South Dakota. FREEZING THE FIGHT OUT. The Redskin I prlsliiL- Will Probably He Postponed.
