appointed to investigate the ('hcago
strike, arrived here yesterday morn

journeil A.ugust 30. is to reassemble
at the ofties of the detpartment of
labor to-day to decide whether any
further testimony is needed and to
hear or receive any further Sugges

that may he volunteered. Commis
sioner \Vright says that he has done
no work upon the subject since the
adtjour'nimeint of the c'oimmission, al
though he has given it much of his
thought during the recess while the
testimony was being prepared. ('ow
missioner Keruan of New York has
been charged with the duty of making
a synopsis of the remedies from
suggestions that have been recived.
'lhe-e have come from munltitudes of

the duty of digesting and analyzing

should any legislation looking to the
correction of any existing evil be
deemed necessary or available. The
commission is in no sense a judicial
body and has no power to condemn
any of the parties. It is simply to re
port the facts, with such recommend
ation as may seem to it proper. The
investigation of the strike was practi
cally a post mortem, as it was over
when we began ourt labors. We went
to work leisurely and by taking the
sworn statements of the participants

WASHINGTON, Sept. 21. -Senor Mur
ugua, the Spanish minister, author
izes the following statement as to re
cent cable reports that Spain had in
structed him to open negotiations for
a new commercial arrangment or
treaty: ",ýince the reciprocity ar
rangement a brisk trade has been car
ried on between the United States and
Cuba and l'oto Rico, composed prin
cipally of farm products, which runs
up into the millions-says an average
of $22,0o0,000 yearly for American
ports. It is to the interest of the
United States as that of Spain that
the change of mutual commodities
shall not collapse. The American
sugar producers do not raise the
tenth part of the home consumption,
and struggle besides under the disad
vantage of climate, soil and price of
labor. Americans, therefore, need
our sugar and their refining indus
tries are largely benefitted by it, as
well as the farming producti which
find a ready market for their surplus
in Cuba and Porto Rico. Everythinag
points, therefore, to the necessity of
a fair and equitable anderstrnding,
even if it should not assume the for
malities of a treaty."

A Peculiar Fraud.
WASmNiorON, Sept. 22.,-The inte
rior department has just passed on a
case where a peculiar fraud is being
practiced. Some time ago a resident
of Tennessee wrote to the attorney
general stating that last May he saw
an advertisement in a Chicago paper
offering for sale 160 acres ot land in
Grove county, Kan. The real agent
lived at lathrop, Mo.. and through
him the land was purchased by the
man from Tennessee. It was then
found that the government owned the
land, although the Lathrop agent had
furnished a complete deed and ab
stract of title. Since then the same
tract has been advertised by the same
agent. It is held by the interior de
partment that as the rights of the
government are in no way affected
there is nothing for the inte
rior department to do in the
premises. It is suggested, however,
that the attentior, of the proper au
thorities be called to the fraud, with
a view of saving innocent parties who
do not make thorough investigation
of the land titles.
An Important Decision.
WASIINGTON, .ept. 25.--Solicitor
Reeve of the treasury department,
yesterday rendered an opinion which
involves the constitutional question
whether congress has the right to
pass a law which impairs the obliga
tion of contracts. At its last session
congress passed an act reducing the
compensation of surfmen employed at
life saving stations on the gaeatlakes.
The question at issue was whether
this reduction applied where contracts
with surfmen at the old rate had been
entered into. The solicitor finds that
the said act was not intended to ap.
ply to existing contracts with surt
men at lake stations.
