The enormous emigration whiob is mov

Oregon,averaging more than 150 per day,
insures the company a great future
business in that section. The miqpral
development in Montana and Idaho has
for a few months been phenomenal.
The senate oommittee. on Indian af
fairs has instructed Senator Dawes to
report favorably, with an amendment
similar to tbe one which is made to the
senate bill, Delegate'Toole's house bill
for tbe ratification of the agreement
made with the Piegans and Blaokfeet
Indians on the northern reservation of
Montana. This bill was reported to the
senate, with an amendment excluding
the desert lands from its pperations in
reference to tbe disposition of the lands
thrown open- to entry. Mr. Dawes re
ported the bill as direoted, and it will
be substituted for the senate bill now on
theoalender and passed.

says tbere is no present intention of

It has come to tbe conclusion that two

population and resources sufficient, as
has already been demonstrated in the
case of south Dakota, for her admission
as a state. The present population of
North Dakota is 200,000, a larger num

Tbere is a mystery connected with tlie
sudden strike of tbe Atohison, Topeka
& Santa Fe engineers and firemen. The
movement was a surprise all around.
The railroad management did not ex
pect it and the chief of the looomotive
brotherhood did not expeot it. The lat
ter expresses great surprise over the
occurrence. At 2:30 o'olook on the
afternoon of the 15th the grievance
committee of the brotherhood, in oon
ference with the general officers of the
Santa Fe, stated that tbe engineers had
no grievanoe and at 3:50 the came after1
noon the general manager of the road
was notified that all his engineers would
quit work at four o'olook—ten minutes
later. In oomplianoe with this notifies
tion the Santa Fe strike was precipita
ted and all its- engineers «ent out
Tbeteis existing between the manage
ment of tbe road and the brotherhood a
contraot binding tbe brotherhood not to
strike exoept upon thirty days' written
notioe to the company. The Hanta Fe
kept entirely out of the Burlington
fight and has. aooepted no freight from
that line during the strike. There has
been no trouble between the oompany
and its men and the absonoe of any
oomplaints whatever plaoed the road in
a seemingly seoure position against the
suspension of its business. In the faoe
of these oonditions tbe sudden action of
the Santa Fe brotherhood furnishes a
new and inexplicable phase of the pend

a position where an explanation is due

between its month and tbe mouth of
James river in Dakota and aoross the] tj^diogen

bridges at points where the construction
thereof will sot materially affeot the in'
terests of navigation aoross these rivers
between tbe points named, on the Mis
sissippi between tbe meuth of tbe Min
nesota river and Natobez. In all high
bridges every span over the water way
between the shore lines of tbe river at a
bank full-stage shall give a clear head
room not less than that prescribed for
those over ohannel ways, and all bridges
shall be so looated that a good ohannel
oan be kept and maintained for the pas
sage of boats st all navigable seasons of
water, and one draw opening at least
shall be located over the beet and. most
convenient ohannel of the river at any
stage of water and that in all bridges
with ohannel or raft spans of draw open
ings of less than 300 feet clear ohannel
way there may be required one or more
protection piers of masonry, orib work
or piling, extending up stream 1,000 feet
or less from the oenter line of the bridge.
All draw spans shall be operated by

The seoretary of war, upon examina
tion, finds that the provisions of senate
bill 275 to authorize the oonttruotion of
bridges at the points mentioned, are
such that before expressing the opinion
of his office, it is deemed advisable that
the bill be oonBide.red by a board of
engineer effioers whose large experience
has rendered then! familiar with the
navigation of these rivers and the re
quirements effected by tbe bill, and tbe
engibger offloer of tbe army accordingly
recommended it to such a board.
