Sracticabilityot laying a cable between

RAnrntarv Trai-v of tha Kan Tlanarf mant
In a letter states that the result of the
survey show that a practicable route
can be easily selected. The report of
the hydrographio office of the bureau of
navigation states that the survey show
that the laying of the cable on almost
any line between California and the Ha-
waiian Island is practicable. A line
about 300 miles wide was developed be
tween (California and Hawaii, and the
results as shown by the report seem to
indicate the most favorable route to be a

Senator Allen' bill granting about
twenty-eight acre of the Fort Walla
Walla military reservation to the city of
Walla Walla for a public park has passed
ihe Senate. The bill allows the city of
Walla Walla the nse of the triangular
portion of the reservation on the north
corner, which is separated from the m tin
body of the reserve by the county high
way and the Oregon railway and naviga
tion track, for a public park. It pro
vides, however, that before beginning to
use any of the land the city shall present
to the Secretary of War detailed plans
for the improvement, and it shall re
ceive his approval ; also that the United
States reserves to itself the title in the
tract and the right to resume possession
and occupy any portion of it whenever
in the judgment of the Pres:dent the
pablic interest may require it without
any claim for compensation to the city

age which the government may inflict, ,
Representative Wilson has introduced
a bill granting the Northern Pacific
right of way through the Puyallap In
dian reservation, which has recently
been favorably reported by the Commit-.
tee on Indian Affairs. The bill proposes
to ratify and confirm an agreement be
tween the Pnyallup Indian and the
Northern Pacific, made in 1876, which
grants right of way through the reserva
tion for the Cascade branch of the
Northern Pacific There has been a
number of bills introduced before for
rights of way through the Pnyallup reser
vation, but all have been postponed or
hungup, awaiting some action which
will forever settle the Puyallap Indian
difficulties. Perhaps this bill will be
treated in the same way, although it is
now represented that the Northern Pa
cific needs the granted right of way and '
the station ground, and there is really
no reason wny some outsnouianot pass.
Of course the various railroad oompanie
generally fl;bt each other on bills of
this character, each desiring to secure
th best lands on the water front. It Is
probable, however, that this bill will be
bang np antu some action is taken next
winter on th pending Puyallup uu i& .
