There is the understanding of well in

New York, June 25. A special to the
Herald from Washington says : A new
executive branch of the government
with the title, "Department of Colonial
Aiiairs ana foreign Commerce, or
something similar to it, is deemed by
the administration absolutely necessary
to meet new conditions which confront
the United States as a result of the w
with Spain.
The word "colonial" is repugnant for
political reasons to so ire of the mem
bers of the cabinet, because it smacks of
imperialism, and it is probable that
some other title will be adopted. The
meaning, however, will be the same.
Preliminary to recommendations to con
gress on this subject, data is now being
complied concerning the control of the
colonies by foreign powers and the
extension of our commerce into foreign
fields, and members of the cabinet and
subordinate officials of the administra
tion are giving much thought and time
to the details of the proposed new department.
American consuls on doty in the
colonies belonging to foreign powers, es
pecially those of Great Britaio, are to
be led upon for full reports upon a
list of questions now preparing for sub
mission to them. Robert P. Porter, who
is looked upon as the probable head of
the proposed cabinet offico when created,
will be consulted in regard to the plans
for extending foreign commerce, which
is to become a feature of the new department.

The latter are urged to promptly inform

warned to let bygones he bygones and to

Indians Fight Over Religion.
Vascoiveb, B. C, June 24. Three
rival factious of the Indian community
at Port Essington had a bloody fight last
Saturday. The steamer Princess Louise
brought the news here, and many of the
Indians who took part in the fight came
on her. It appears that a few week ago
the Indians encamped at Essington went
on strike in the salmon-fishing business.
A corps of the Salvation Army ai rived
shortly afterwards and commenced to
bold revival services. Ttiese were very
popular for some time, and the Method
ist and Church of England missionaries
then decided to emulate the example of
the Salvationists, so that soon they had
camp about equally divided among them.
This condition of affairs resulted in a se
rious riot on Saturday, in which many
Indians were injured bat none killed.
Wheat Sales in Walla Walla.
Walla Walla, Wash., June 22. Dur
ing the latter part of last week consid
erable wheat changed hands here on the
bulge in the market. Buyers estimate
that 150,000 bushels were sold at 50 cents
for club and 53 for bluestem. Should
the market go back to those figures again
it is probable thnt the Valley would
be pretty thoroughly drained of its sur
plus. The growing crop is in good con
dition, but being all spring-sown it shows
the need of continuous showers, and
unlees another good rain comes before
ripening commences, the crop will be
immature and the heads poorly filled.
