ATTACK ON THE INDIAN SCHOOL SYSTEM. The Appropriation For the Carlisle School Retained by the House* WASHINGTON, Jan. 26.— The house devoted another day to the considera tion of the Indian appropriation biil, most of the time being consumed, as on the two previous days, in discussing extraneous subjects. By far the most interesting feature of the day was the debate on the question of reducing the mail carrier services in the large cities owing to the failure of the senate to attach the estimated deficiency of $160, --000 to the urgent deficiency bill. This subject has been agitating the metro politan cities ever since the order was issued for cutting down the force on Feb. 1. A dozen representatives from as many different cities protested against the proposed reduction and urged an immediate appropriation, when Chairman Loud, of the postofflce committee, and Chairman Cannon, of the appropriation committee, allayed the wrath of the members by assuring them that there was no occasion for alarm; that the service could not pos sibly suffer until June 15, before which time there would be ample opportunity to pass a deficiency appropriation. Mr. Loud used strong words in his criti cism of the postoffice department offi cials and promised some Interesting disclosures later on. The motion to strike out the appropriation for the Carlisle Indian school was defeated af ter considerable debate, 2'J to 65. Ten pages of the bill were disposed of to day. The conference report on the urgent deficiency bill was adopted. Without any preliminary business the house on assembling went into commit tee of the whole and resumed consid eration of the Indian appropriation bill. The pending amendment was that to strike out the appropriation for the Carlisle Indian school. It was defeat ed, 29 to 65. An amendment offered by Mr. Kel ley (Dem., S. D.) to increase the num- ' ber of Indian pupils at Flandreau, S. i D.. to 300 and to increase the appropri- ! ation there to $16,000 was defeated, 11 to 54. MR. KELLET NETTLED. The number of pupils provided for at the Salem, Or., school was increas ed by fifty. The action on this amend ment drew out an indignant protest fr<>m Mr. Kelley, who paid his respects to Mr. Sherman and Mr. Cannon for looking with favor upon an amend ment offered by a member on the Re publican side of the house. The latter replk-d good naturedly but referred to i Mr. Kelley as a "bantam rooster" and I usually a rather "good-looking, amia ble man." The gentleman from South Dakota was evidently nettled and he retorted ! with considerable bitterness. So far i as physical characteristics went, he j said, he thought Mr. Cannon might i make as respectable a looking rooster ! as himself. This was not the first time j he had been insulted by the gentleman j from Illinois. "I may not have had the legislative experience of the gentle- ! man from Illinois," said he, "neither, j 1 thank God, have I as yet learned ruffianism, blackguardism and ungen- j tlemanly conduct. I grant that he is an adept at cheeseparing, but when it comes to Danville, 111., he wants every- I thing in sight." Mr. I'annon did not make any reply to this attack. On motion of Mr. Griffin (Rep., Wis.) an amendment was adopted to appro priate $10,0<jO for an additional school building at Tomah, Wis. Mr. Bromwell (Rep., O.) got the floor at this point to submit some remarks upon the failure of the senate to place In the urgent deficiency bill an appro priation for the continuation of the full : mail carrier service until July 1. It was well known, he said, that an order bad been issued to cut down the car rier service Feb. 1. He proceeded to I comment on the discrimination against certain cities, notably Cincinnati, in the matter of carrier service. Mr. Quigg (N. V., Rep.) in repl>, maintained that the mail deliveries In New York city were absolutely neces sary to get the mail out of and Into ' the great office in that city. Mr. Beiknap (Rep.. 111.). Mr. Adams (Rep., Pa.) and other members repre senting the larger cities, all protested against the reduction in the carrier ': service. They had been overwhelmed, ' they said, with protests. SENSATIONAL SPEECH. Mr. Loud, chairman of the pnstoffice committee, made a sensational speech, I or rather a speech promising sensa- j tional developments in the future. He was very hoarse and could with dif- j ficulty be heard above a whisper. Only : the circumstances of the case, he said, ! could induce him to attempt to say anything today. The question present- i ed was one far greater than the simple i one of a delivery more or less in New i York or Chicago. The statements of the gentleman from New York (Quigg), said he. were absolutely false and un founded. That gentleman, said he. had ! been having himself interviewed, ' charging that he (Loud) was respon sible for the existing predicament, that he (Loud) had defied congress and the postoffice and had forced the depart ment to cut off the carriers. "Such criticism," said Mr. Loud, "is beneath my contempt. The charge is j made that the postoffice appropriation | bill this year carried $160,000 below the i estimates. I know the officials of the ! postoffice department back that charge but I assert that it is false." "Then you allege falsehood against the officials of the department?" inter rupted Mr. Quisr.s;. "Let him take it who can hear it," responded Mr. Loud. Mr. Loud pro ; to affirm that the postoffice of ficials had, contrary to law, appointed 2-^9 additional carriers and created a ctive deficiency of $160,000. He said further that in the face of an ap- | prnpriation nf $75,000 for incidental «k --penses, $107,000 had been spent in six THURSDAY MORNING, JANUARY 27, 1898. months. Over $50,000 of the reported deficiency, he said, belong-ed in that account. He urged members not to be so carried away by pasaion over the possible loss of a carrier or two as to yield the last vestige of their power of circumscribing the acts of the execu tive branches of the government. The perpetuity of the legislative branch of th-e government was Involved, he said. In conclusion he appealed to members to let the whole question come up reg ularly In its own time when he said he would be *-eady to discuss the whole subject. Meantime, he declared that the service could not possibly suffer until June. At 5:32 p m. the house adjourned. TURTLE MOCTSTAIK REDS. Compress Again .Inked to Pay Them for Their Lands. WASHINGTON*. Jan. 26.— 1t Is gen erally understood that this congress will take up and settle the question of the establishment of an Indian reserva tion at Turtle Mountain, N. D. Ac cording to more recent reports there are 1,700 Indians, full and mixed bloods, all told, now occupying two congres sional townships, which were set aside as a temporary reservation by execu tive order during President Arthur's administration. These Indians claim title to about 9.000.000 acres of lands in North Dakota, including the rich farm ing sections of Ramsey. Towner, Rol lette and parts of two "or three adjoin ing counties. The claim has been recognized as valid by several secre taries of the interior and a treaty ar ranged whereby the Tndians are to cede all title to these lands fur $1,000,000 in installments. The committee on In dian affairs, last session, reported In favor of the ratification of the treaty, but owing to lack of funds It was not acted upon. The secretary of the interior and the commissioner of Indian affairs are in favor of the passage of the bill and the ratification of the treaty and it is un derstood that the committee on Indian affairs will make another favorable re port thereon and that an effort will be made to Incorporate the treaty In the Indian appropriation bill. M'KEW.V INSTALLED. The OtHrla.l Ceremony Short and Extremely Simple. WASHINGTON, Jan. 26.— Hon. Jo seph McKenna took his seat on the bench of the supreme court of the United States today as an associate justice. The official ceremony induct ing him into this important office con sumed less than four minutes, and was simple in the extreme. Mr. McKenna I had already taken the general oath of office before the chief justice, when, at one minute pa3t 12 o'clock, he walked into the court room, bringing up the i rear of the procession of justices. He like all the other members of the court wore a long flowing black robe. The j court room was crowded in anticipa- I tion of the event. When he entered ! the chamber the new justice stopped at Clerk McKenney's desk where he remained while the other justices took their respective sea<ts upon the bench. Chief Justice Fuller announced the presence of the new justice, saying: "It gives me pleasure to announce to the gentlemen of the bar that Mr. Joseph McKenna, of California, has been appointed an associate justice of j this court." NO NEW STATES. Such Legislation Killed for the Present Sension oif Congress. WASHINGTON. Jan. ».— StateKood legislation at this session was killed today by the house committee on ter ritories rejecting the Arizona, New Mexico and Oklahoma bills, by a vote of 8 to 3. The first two measures were bunched and defeated. Then the Okla homa bill was taken up and beaten by the same vote. There was no discus sion as It was understood at the last meeting that the vote was to be taken ; today without further preliminaries : Delegates Smith and Ferguson, of Ari- ! zona and New Mexico, stated that they wished to put themselves on record that If they were allowed to vote they would vote for the bills. The civil service eommfssion has given notice that it will hold examina tions for department and railway mall ; service in Minneapolis. March 30 and : April 3; Duluth, March 25 and April 2; Mankato, March 30. The senate committee on post offices voted unanimously today to recom mend Mrs. Patterson's confirmation for the Bisman.k post office.

Sigsbee, who la In command of the war ship Maine, which has been sent by the navy de partment to guard American interests in Havana. Is one otf the moat popular officers ; In the navy. His record since he was gradu ated from Annapolis In 1863 is fine. He is by no means a stranger to the smell of powder and he knows what a ship looks like when it la In acUon. He served in Mobile bay was an active participant In the work of the North Atlantic blockading squadron In IS6o and helped in the attack and In the final as sault up^n Fort FWu-r. Capt. Sigsbee knows how to handle a ship when she needs handling, and when quick action and prompt decision are necessary This he learned ad a boy In the days when the "old line" offlwrs were the flower and pride of the navy, and before the engineers, who n«^w, in their quiet way, are carrying ail SPANISH STATUS UNCHANGED. HAVANA. Jan. 26.— The city Is en tirely quiet tonight. The Maine lies at anchor near the Spanish cruiser Al fonso XIII. Many persons believe that the presence of the American warship here is designed to bring about dis turbances on the streets of Havana when the American sailors and marines land. This morning two battalions of Infantry and a section of artillery ar rived from the province of Pinar del Rio. WASHINGTON.Jan. 26.—Representa tives Heatwole and Smith, two of the Republican members of the house com mittee on foreign affairs, called on As sistant Secretary Day at the state de partment today and went over the status of Cuban affairs. It had been the intention of Representative Adams (Pa.), chairman of the Cuban subcom mittee, to accompany the visitors, but he was detained. The call permitted the members to learn the condition of affairs on the island, although little was developed beyond what is already made public. Secretary Long this morning receiv- j ed a telegram from Admiral Sicard j saying that the North Atlantic squad- j ron had gone into the Inner anchorage*! at Dry Tortugas. The telegram was j brought to Key West by the Fern, j which is serving as a dispatch and j supply boat for the fleet. The torpedo boats in the vicinity of Key West are under Admiral Sicard's orders, while near the squadron, to serve also as j dispatch vessels and to give the yes- | sels some practice in the drills for re- I pelling torpedo attacks. This does ! not, however, interf^r.-: with the stand- \ Ing orders to Lieutenant Commander Kimball, the commanding officer of the torpedo boat flotilla, and the little \ craft will continue on their cruise : along the coast as far west as Galves ton, and then, returning, go up the Mississippi river in the early spring. [ The Porter, one of the fleet, sai'ed yes terday from Port Tampa for Mobile, in company with the Ericsson, to be present at a local celebration there, but they probably will return to the squad- j ron before resuming their along shore ' cruise. A substantial addition to the relief fund being collected for the Cuban suf ferers at the state department was re ceived today through Senator Hoar, who handed Secretary Sherman a check for $6,014. sent to him by George H. Lyman, of Boston, the trustee for a public collection in that city. Secretary Long said today that he had received no notice from the Span ish minister or from any other source that Spanish men-of-war have been ordered to visit United States ports. They were perfectly welcome to do so and come and go as they pleased, he said, and as far as he was concerned he would be delighted to have th^m come. Spanish war ships have fre quently visited the United States since the insurrection broke out in Cuba three years ago, without having ex cited the least unfriendly comment, and there was no reason why any sig nificance should be attached to their coming again when tfkey felt disposed to do so. The Spanish flagship on this station took part in ' the ceremonies connected with the dedication of the Grant monument in New York about a year ago, and also at. the subsequent celebration in Philadelphia last sum mer, after which the Spanish admiral and his staff visited Washington and paid their respects to the president and the members of his cabinet. Secretary Lcng said he recalled with pleasure the visit of the party to tUe navy depart ment. Secretary Sherman also said ne saw no reason why the Spanish ships should not visit the United States and, in fact, he would be glad if they did come. They would be wale irae. All the advices received by the state department and navy department from Cuba today were satisfactory. Gen. Lee at 2 o'clock reported that all was quiet and order prevailed at Havana, At the same hour a cablegram came to the navy department from Capt. Sigsbee from the Maine, saying thit general interest was manifested on the arrival of the Maine in Havana harbor, but there had been no demonstration. He had been ashore himself several times officially and had been received with the greatest courtesy. He ex pected to visit the palace tomorrow. The information from Madrid by As sociated Press that the Spanish gov ernment had decided to send the \va*- before them, came to the front with modern Invention and machinery. Not long ago the Maine, with Sigsbee in command, found herself bearing down on an excursion boat in the East river. Ahead was the excursion boat, full of human b«lngs. On either side was a barge. The only clear way showed a pier. The old commander prdered his engines reversed, and to the amazement of the beholdera he steered straight for the pier and run Into It amuck. The pier was badly torn up. the Malne'3 none was bruised, but several hundred lives were saved. The excursion boat ran clear, but ten loaded freight cars, that wpre Handing o-n the pier, went to the bottom of the rtrcr There la no diubt ac to Capt. Sigwbee's rela tive valuation of human life acd property. About $4,000 In property was destroyed but L,OM lives w-re saved. That was nor. a bad ten mlnur.es" work for a man whose business It is to kill. Warships of the Dons Will Be Made Welcome at American Ports. ship Vizeays on a visit to American ports caused no comment in official circles. She is a formidable crafr larger, faster and more powerful than the .Maine. HA\ ANA, Jan. 26.— The government has reinforced the policy at the Ameri can consulate, along the wharves and on the principal streets as a precaution against any attempts to provoke a col lision when the marines and crew of the United States warship Maine come ashore. Gen. Blanco, who reached Jucaro yesterday, left there today for Manzillo after inspecting the Moron-Jucaro trocha and reviewing the officers. j This afternoon United States Consul | General Lee visited the Maine, return ing the official visit paid him yesterda\ by Capt. Sigsbee. He was then ac- I corded the usual salute. The local pa ! pers insist that the Maine is here on j a friendly visit with the view of "off setting Jingo speeches in Washington." LONDON, Jan. 27.— The Madrid cor ndent of the Daily Mail says the government will ask the next oortes to vote £8,000,000 for strengthening the navy. Madrid, Jan. 26.— The Spanish battle ship Vizcaya, of 7.000 tons displace ment, has been ordered to visit Amer ican ports. ' Senor Sagssta, the premier, read to the queen regent today what is describ ed as a very "satisfactory dispatch" [ from Washington. It is probable that Senor Moret, minister for the colonies, will announce at the next cabinet council a project of political and ad ministrative reforms for the Philip pines. Admiral Rermejo, minister of j marine, has authorized the officers of the Spanish squadron at Havana to at tend the naval banquet to be given by United States Consul General Lee. NEW YORK. Jan. 26.— Orders have been received at the navy yard to hurry the work on the cruiser Brooklyn in order that she may sail Saturday. i the date named by the navy yard. Night and day gangs are working on thn vessel. According to the yard of ficials, the Brooklyn will be ready to ! sail on Saturday, and will be with the fleet on the following Monday. HAVANA. Jan. 26.— The German cruiser Charlotte (school ship) has just arrived here. A British warship has reached here from Key West, and some French warships are expected here from New Orleans.

OTTAWA, Jan. 26.— The contract for building a railway from Telegraph creek to Teslin lake, leading from the i head waters of the Stikeen to Dawson City, has been signed by McKenzle and Mann the road to be commenced at a | point not yet decided upon, near Glen ora, and to run to Tealln lake over a country not very difficult for rail way construction. The distance 13 about 130 miles. The Canadian govern ment has agreed with the contractors to give 25.000 acres of land per mile as a subsidy. The railway will be com pleted in time to permit of supplies teing sent into the Yukon before next winter sets in. Steamers are to be run from Teslin lake to Dawson. THREE SEVERE SHOCKS. Helena and the Adjacent Part of Ar kan*aa Shaken. HELENA, Ark., Jan. 26.— At 7:50 : o'clock tonight this city was startled ' ! by a severe earthquake shock. Houses ■ were shaken to their foundations and I a succession of noises was heard that ; I sounded like immense explosions. The j people who had assembled in the Pr-s --j byterian church for prayer meeting , ! rushed out of the church expecting the ' walls to tumble down upon them. ' There were three distinct shocks in quick succession, the flrst being the , ■ moet severe and the three occupying ion than a half dozen seconds. Th~y were followed by a trembling or shak ing motion and not by the usual sway- I ing and waving motion. Telephone messages from country points indicated that the shock was felt at many places.
