OMAHA HUB , 1 513 Fouivrr.nNTii STHBF.T , > WASHINGTON , D. C. , May 20. | President Harrison has quickly "sat down upon" all suggestions' as to Sunday confer ences nt the whlto house. When ho first took possession of the ofllco ho now occupies , Homo of his friends , with the habits of his immediate predecessor In view , nskcd to hnvo ntorvlows on Sunday. The president ad mitted Bomo of them , but when they broached politics there was an end to the conversation. General Harrison has never discussed politics or business on Sunday , nnd Is not Inclined to begin it nt this time , es pecially when ho has to llvo on it six days nnu nights In the week. Those who hnvo the hardihood io attempt to speak of official matters when they meet him on the streets , going to or from church , have not mentioned their rebukes to friends. \\IIY CIIANOT.S WElti : NOT MAKE. Several positions connected with the ex ecutive departments remain In the Bnmo hands they were In a year or two ago , and the failure of the president to make changes is the source of souie complaint on the part of partisan republicans. These positions uro more or less of general public importance , nnd whllo It may bo true in u few instances , the present Incumbents , taking but little in terest in their offices , permit the public ser vice to drag. There nro public reasons wny changes in most instances have not been made. Moro persons nro interested In in the commlsslonorstilp of the general land ofllco than any position held by a democrat. The opening of Oklahoma und over thirty million acres of land in Minnesota , Ne braska , Montana and Dakota hits been considered Biifllcicnt reason for retaining Commissioner Siockslugcr till Secretary Noble was properly inducted into office , now there will , however , soon bo n change. The president bus been unable to determine upon the man ho wanted for commissioner of nav igation , and that is why a democrat who has never given satisfaction IK not put out. He will soon bo relieved now that au appolnt- can bo made. The public service Is not suf fering on nccountof the present organization of the iutcr-stato commerce commission und HO long ns there uro such demands as there ore for the president's time ho will direct his attention to immediate wants. It Is un derstood that there will bo no more oxtcn- tions of the commissions , of the bureau of engraving and printing nnd that Captain William Mcridith , of Chicago , will talto charge this xvcok. Twice the commission of Graves has been extended for ten days. At torney-General Miller has deemed it wise to retain most of Ins assistants for the good of the service , and it Is under stood that there will bo no more changes there , at least for some months. General Rosccrans , register of the treasury , being nu ex-union soldier on the retired list , will rellro of his'own free will when his successor Is selected , but no effort bus been made in that direction for obvious reasons. General Joe Johnson , commissioner of railroads , has not been put out early because ho is inoffensive , politically speaking , nnd a southern republi can cannot bo agreed uoon. Ho may stay some tlmo yet. In most instances the promi nent offices loft unchanged represent ofllcers needed for the present , or the president has seen no emergency requiring precipitate ac tion. The complaint in nearly every instance como from those who want the place. DAKOTA MATTlillS. Sonator-olcct Edgcrton , of South Dakota , arrived hero this morning. To your corre spondent ho said of the constitutional con vention which assembles ut Sioux Fulls on the Fourth of July : "Tho most important work to bo done will bo the apportionment of the territorial debt between North nnd South Dakota. It will bo based upon property values. This work will occupy soveuiil days , but it will bo com pleted without any friction. The territory Is in a prosperous condition and the debt is small. The constitution adopted In 1SS5 was by overwhelming majority ratified lust week at the polls , and only North Dakota will have a new constitution to frame. She has never attempted to do that thing , und her convention , which convenes on the sumo day , will lust two di1 three weeks , proba bly. " Senator Edgorton will undoubtedly be chairman of the South Dakota convention , Speaking of the opening of the grout Sioux Indian reservation in Nebraska and Dakota , the senator said : commissioners appointed for the purpose will organize In Chicago this week , and I have no doubt that their terms will bo readily accepted by the Indians. It Is the best the Indians can do , and nobody knows this better than they do. If they should refuse - fuse they nro aware what it moans , when the Dakotas send four senators and throe representatives to congress this winter and in favor of n law which will open the reser vation to settlement without the consent of the Indians. I um in fuvorof ttiut kind of action. Wo should bo liberal with the Indians , but when wo know wo uro doing the proper thing there Is no lisa in negoti ating. Our new governor , Mollctto , is n magnificent officer , und wo huvo' secured the best possible government under President Harrison. " SoimU.r . Edgorton Is here to nrpuo a case 1 In luw before the Interior department. Ho has boon ou the stump In South Dakota for six weeks , mid says his political work Is , for the present ut toast , ut an end. * NEOUOrS 1IXC1TCI ) .

It created an excitement which has not yet subsided. HETIIIEMENTS IX TUB AltMV. President Harrison nnd Secretary Proctor have taken up the subject of retirements In tbo army , und nro endeavoring to formulate a definite rule by which retirements will bo made on the , limited disability retired list. This list Is limited to100 , and there nro aiwuys u largo number of officers eligible for retirement. Secrotury Proctor fuvors the promotion of ofllcers who huvo been longest in the borvicc- , but who from being assigned to regiments where promotion had bcon slow , nitiy bo very fur down on the lliicnl list. As the tune for the retirement ol Adjutant-General Drum draws near there le a grout deal of interest felt in the army ns to whom wfll bo hia successor. At first nearly nil the colonels In the adjutant-general's corps were spoken of ns candidates , but the contest is now supposed to bo narrowed down to Colonels Kelton und Whlpplo.

Tno May report of the statistician of the agricultural depart ment contains the result of the Investigations of the deficiencies of the surplus of each European nation , especially In the production of the agricultural products that America sends to foreign markets. The question of the possibly enlargement of exportation in quantity nhd variety Is canvassed nnd the opportunities for displacing any importation by enlarged production lire pointed out. The investigation was made pursuant to a reso lution passed at u meeting of the National Grange hold in Topoku , Kun. , last tall. Some of the llgurca given in the statement prepared are Btailllng. As to wheat , it says Europe Is practically the only market Amer ica can have for Ihls cereal nnd she Imports only H4,000W)0 bushels nycar , raising 1,200- 000,000 bushels herself moro than hnlfof the world's crop nnd twice that of all America. Of the European tiollclcncy the United Status supplies 1)5,000,000 ) bushels. in oals and barley there is n very small In- tcrnutionnl Irnde , Europe Importing only 19,000,000 bushels of outs and the United Stntcs exporting 2,500,000 bushels. Ofbarloy this country Imports 7GOO,000 bushels. Uyo Is the great broad gram of eastern nnd central Europe , and KUKSIU ntoiio produces more than does the United States. Europe Imports not less than 1,500,000 bushels , and the United Stutes exports less than ,00a,0l0 bUshols. European countries requiring maize , do not take half the product of Illinois or of Iowa or Missouri. Great Britain takes nearly ttirco-fourths of the total , or O'J- 000,000 and this country exports 08,000,000 bushels. The deficiency of Frunco could bo supplied By McLean county , Illinois , uud Germany requires still less. Russia nnd Koumania hiivo a surplus nnd southern Eu ro DO crows enough for homo consumption. Europe imports over 1UOO,000OJO pounds of rico , but none of It comes from the United States. Of potatoes Europe grows moro than she needs , wiillo the United States supplies u deficiency from Canada nnd Germany. Only Great Britain , Belgium und Portugal , of nil thu European nations , do not produce enough butter und to spare to make up the de ficiency 25,000.0 0 pounds , the United Stutes exports 2 ,000,000 pounds , It requires 140,000,000 pounds of cheese to supply the European deficiency , of which 118,000,000 uro furnished by the United Stutes. Of course , Europe bus to Import nil her cotton , tbo annual uverngo imports being 2o : ! ,000,000 pounds. The United States sends lb50,000OHO pounds. Europe gets from South America , Asia , Africa and Australia two or three times as much wool as she imports from the United Stales. The net deficiency of Europe is 780,000,000 pounds , slightly moro than what la produced there. The United States produces four-fifths of the wool manufactured here. The aim of the wool growers of this country is to supply the homo manufacturer , if possible ; never to export raw wool. If there over shall bo a surplus , it will bring moro money to the wool grower if sent abroad In manufactured form. The United States Imports a net 09,000,000 pounds of wool every year. Euiopoproduces ubout ns much tobacco us . ' the United States 500,000,000 pounds nn- nunlly and could easily produce all she needs but American tobacco is desired for two reasons , it is cheap and very desirable for for tifying the European product. So the United Stales furnishes 2ri2,000,000 pounds of the annual deficiency , 324,000,000 pounds. In conclusion the statistician says : "About one-tenth of our agricultural products nro exported. No other nation exports so largo a proportion , yet the articles shipped ubroad uro few. They uro cotton , tobacco , meats brcadstuffs , butter and cheese. All other articles together are ubout 3 per cent of the exports. An enlargement of the surplus must Inevitably reduce prices , both at homo and abroad. " In response to the inquiry : "What agri cultural products are now Imported that our country and climate are capable of produo mgl" sugar is first suggested. "Flax uud hemp should bo moro exten sively grown displacing foreign fibres cost ing millions of money uud furnishing umlcral for the bagging of cotton , wool and hops , and other fibres of sub-tropical regions should bo produced along tlio gulf const. Imported fibres , with their manufac ture , altogether amount to the value of more than two-thirds as much as the munificent nnd boasted cotton exportation of the United States. Thcro is an exportation of fruits of the value of $ > \000.000 , half of which at least should bo produced In tills country. " It Affects 100,000 Cn'cs. WASHINGTON , Muy 20 , An opinion of the United States supreme court in the case of the United States vs Jo tin D. Hall , wns , to-day , subject to earnest discussion among the officials of the general land office. Ono of the points at issue was that Hall had made oath before a notary public. The supreme court decided ttiat where an oath is required by United States statute , that oath can bo administered only by an officer of the United States. Hence , n notary public being n state officer , can not administer oaths to United States ofllcluls , cxcopt the statutes specifically utatu the oath may bo made before such state official. Tills opinion , It is believed , seri ously affects the status of moro than a hun dred thousand cases in the mineral division alone of the general land office. Deputy mineral surveyors have for several years , it is said , sworn to the correctness of their statements before notaries public. During the fast four years a lurgo number of cases under the general lund la\\s have been re ceived for patent at tbo general lund otllce , where final proof was not inado before the officer designated by law for the purpose. Where no other error wus found they hnvo been allowed to go to patent. This policy wus first adopted by Secrotury Vllas. The opinion of the supreme court has created alarm und n request for Interpretation of section 2 , 135 revised statutes , 1ms been sent to Assistant Attorney-General Shields , with particular reference to the supreme court de cision und Its effect upon pending eases In the general land office.

Admiral Kimberly replied , expressing his pleasure that Mutnafu was willing to declare the war at an end. Ho snld Tnmascso still had nothing to sav of peace except on condi tions of submission. Ha assured Mntnafn that the efforts of the United States Govern ment in the Berlin conference will bo directed to obtain * those points that will tidvanco and promote the Interests of Samoii in every re spect , mid adjures him to bo of good heart. Admiral ICImbcrfy declined to make the correspondence between hlmsolt and Taina- scso public , staling it must first go before the department nt Washington. The Gorman consul , Knappo , docs not think Admiral Kimberly's proclamation will amount to anything. Hurr Stubel , the now Gorman representa tive , arrived on April 2S. Tlio Associated press correspondent had an interview a few days ago with Mataafa , In which the latter said his pcopio felt very grateful for the interest the Americans hud taken in their cause. Ho had no dcslro to fight Tnmascso or the Germans , and would like to see the United States declare n pro tectorate over Samoa. He thought that was the best way to avoid trouble , as the natives wore continually lighting among themselves when the consuls of tlio three powers hnd eniinl authority. Allldavits have neon prepared under the direction of Matuafa which have been forwarded to the Btuto department at Washington In reference to the December battle , and in which several native witnesses declare the Germans com menced the lighting , killed ono of the natives , and wounded another before the Sauioaus ilrcd a.shot. An attack was made a week ago by some of Tamaseso's men upon two of Matnafa's party who were passing oy the camp. Both men were slightly wounded. A number of Mntaafa's .varriors were greatly excited and wished to attack Tamaseso , but were per suaded to allow the incident to pass un noticed.

The nctrro has cotno to stay with us , and wo must give him an education that will fit him for his duty to God and man , " A resolution recommending the adoption of the report and recommendations of the standing committee of the board of missions for freedom xvas adopted. Dr. W. O. Kus- tor , of Dubuque , In. , presented the report of the committee appointed to Inquire Into evangelical work among emigrants , particu larly Germans and Scandinavians. The emigrant question , the report said , had now got Into politics , and the racial sympathies and prejudices that existed were likely to breed trouble. It would bo much bettor not to recognize emigrants as u class at nil , but let them mcrgo into the general population and imbibe the American spirit. But many o.

Fifty thousand Germans In the city of Now York have broken every church tio. Infidelity among foreigners is on the increase. Over four millions of emigrants in the last four years were protcstants and almost three millions were not. The report then gave a synopsis of the work done by the various protestant denom inations and emigrant societies , in evangeli zation among foreigners. The Germans par ticularly needed looking after by the Pres byterian church. A foreign tongue must bo used in evangelizing emigrants , The committee recommended that n third secretary bo appointed on the board of for eign mlssions.wno will devote his time to the emigrant question , Dr. A. C. Smith , of Frcenort , 111 , , spoico on the report. Ho said tlio Irish emigrants did not come under the scope of the commit tee bccauso they were Roman Catholics. Their energies must bo devoted principally toward evangelizing Germans , bccauso they would leave a deeper impress on the future American rnco than any other nation ality. If they refused to preach to Germans in the German tongue , they would lose the opportunity of preaching either to them or to their children. The Germans were thrifty and Intelligent , and lnllupnced Vmcrican po litical , social and religious life , and the Pres byterian church could not afford to Ignore thorn. The conference then took a recess , and further consideration of the report on emigrant evangelization was postponed until to-morrow. In the afternoon scssfon Rov.
