Washington dispatch, 11: Indian Commissioner Morgan will make no for mal reply to the recent attack upon him by Senator Vest, of Missouri, who char acterized him as a narrow minded bigot, and declared that he has prejudices against the work of the Catholics among the Indians. He says that the next re port of the bureau will show that the Catholic Indian bureau has drawn near ly $2o0,000 from the national treasury in •ight years, and that it is uow being paid $70 a year per 'head for the edu cation of 5,000 children. The reason why Commissioner Morgan does not care to aeter into a controversy with the Missouri senator is because his resig nation, to go into effect March 1, has al ready been accepted by the president. On that date he takes the position of aarreeponding secretary to the Xatwnal fihptist Home Missionary society. The most sensible means of raising the funds for the world's fair exhibit we have yet seen proposed is by the bill of Senator Burleigh, of Yankton, just intro duced in the legislature.

He advanced the argument that this should be done to foster a pioneer enterprise and cited instances where oongress had done so in the past. This led Mr. Turner, Democrat, to re mark that this might be considered as an application of the idea of building up new industries on the policy of free trade. Mr. Reed, who came in late, when told what the hearing was about, only observed that if the corporati*^ did cot desire to buy their material in this country they ought not to build here.

DECATUR, Ills., Jan. 16. —C. M. Hayes, general manager of the Wabasb, has issued a circular denying the demands of the operators for an advance in wages.

WABHINOTOK, Jan. if.—Mr. Blaine passed another uneventful night and was reported by Dr. Johnston, who left the house at 5:30 a. m., to be resting comfortably and to be a trifle stronger than he was in the evening.

Dr. Johnston was asked the direct question whether he considered Mr. Blaine in a dying con dition but evading an exact reply, said that he was constantly growing weaker. He intimated that while his condition was susceptible to the slightest changes, he (the doctor) did not believe there was any immediate danger of dissolution. While more or less nourishment was given Mr. Blaine, the physician ad mitted that he is living on stimulants, and several times his life has been re called by the administration of nitro glycerine which in its results has even surprised the physicians. It was evi dent from the replies to the interroga tions of the reporters that Dr. Johnston was mystified at the wonderful vitality possessed by the patient* Not a 6end Night.

He was a little restless during the night and seems to be slowly losing strength even at times when he is free from any return of distinctly unfavorable symp toms. FAVORED THE POPULISTS.

The Republican committee appointed to call on the governor and talk the sit uation over, visited the executive im mediately after dinner. The governor received them cordially and expressed a desire that peace be agreed upon, but his views and those o2 the committee were wide apart and the interview amounted to nothing. Thus the breach is widened and there is no longer a pros pect of an amicable settlement.
