(oMraiU Good News for ths Territories.
Washington, March 15. A delegation
of gentlemen representing all the territories
except New Mexico visited the White house
yesterday, to present their views in regard
to territorial government. There were in
the delegation John Haiiey of Idaho, Judge
Mead of Arizona, M. H. Day of Dakota,
Judge J. A. Kofanof Washington territory.
Delegate Tooie of Montana, judge Merritt
of Utah, and J. XV. McCormick of Montana,
all members of the national committee.
Mr. Haiiey acted as spokesman for the par
ty, and said they c.tine to learn what the
administration was goin? to do in territo
rial affairs. "Mr. Celaiul wp!isd, briefly
but clearly, that lie should appoint to terri
torial offices men from the territories, He
also clearly pledged himself to listen to the
recomendations of democrats within the
territories, and not be decided in his choice
of men for governors by outside pressure.
Slater's Chances Pronounced Good.
Washington, March 15. The fight for
the commissionership of the general land of
fice has about narrowed down to ex-Senator
Slator of Oregon, ex-Representative Sparks
of Illinois, and Suveyor general Wiley of
California. George XV. Julliau has retired
from the race, though he was endorse 1 by
the Indiana delegation. Slater has a very
strong senatorial influence, and the best
opinion is in his favor. All of the papers
of this city now agree that Slater ss pretty
certain of the appointment, and the Cali
fornians are even willing to admit it.
British Columbia to be well Defended.
Ottawa, March 16. It is the intention
of the war office at once to put the defences
of British Columbia in a more satisfactory
condition, and increase the fleet in Pacific
waters by the addition of four or five pow -erf
ul iron clad rams. The Canadian Pacific
railroad will be pushed to completion with
all possible speed, to be available for con
Teyance of troops and munitions of war to
the Pacific coast.

Indisn Troubles in New Mexico.
Albuquerque, N. M.. March 13. A let
ter just received from Fort Apache brings
news of an expected outbreak there, and
that troops are kept in readiness for instant
action. The trouble originates as follows:
A Uhiricahua, who is in prison under In
dian guards, for the murder of a white man
two years ago, attempted to escape last
Friday. One guard, a White mountain
Apache, called upon him to stop, and on re
fusal brought his gun to bear on the escaping
man, when another guard, a Chiricahua and
cousin of the murder, placing a rifle against
the abdomen of the other guard, literally
cut him in two. White mountain braves
are gathering tor vengeance, and serious
trouble is anticipated.
Cleveland's Civil Service Polic.
New Yokk, March 13. The Sun this
morning bristles with points against Cleve
land's civil service policy. It advises
Cleveland to stand by the democracy, aud
1-t the mugwumps go.
I he Heralds Washington special says:
Cleveland yesterday emphatically declared
that he wiil carry out the civil service re
form. Both Hendricks and Vorhees dis
sented most emphatically from the positions
of the president, and especially from the
purpose he announced of making changes
very slowly, and only in those classes ot
offices in which every one expects a change
almost at once, with the administration
making them. The president's views, if
carried out, will not, speaking generally,
give officer much faster than commissions
General Grant's Oonlition.
New York, March 13. With the ex
ceptions of brief spells of wakefulness, Geo.

New Yop.k, March 13. General Grant

i a id temperature are about the same, liis

deut Snowdeu of tlie United States mint of

; 50,000 tr.ule dollars since March 4, and

Thayer, Mo., March 15. This section of
tiie country was visited by a heavy f ill of
shut last night, measuring fully seven
indies on a level, and was general through
cut northeastern Arkansas. It nearly all
disappeared, however, under the influence
of a warm sun to-day. To-night the weath
er is clear and freezing. During the past
week farmers have been plowing and doing
other spring work, and retired last night at
the close of a spring-like day, only to awake
this morning and find everything covered
Fulton, Mo., March 15. The lung
plague among tiie asylum cattle is spreading
alarm among our cattle dealers. Dr Trum
bower had two cows killed from the herd
yesterday afternoon that were infected, for
die purpose of demonstrating the disease to
the Asylum Board. One of the cows seemed
perfectly well, but the doctor said she had
the disease and had had it for some time;
that one of her lungs was almost entirely
t'one. On examination the doctor's state
ment was verified. Tiie other cow, that
appeared cjuite sick, he said had had the
disease but a short time, and gave what he
supposed to be the condition of her lungs.
When examined his statement wa3 accurate
in every detail.
Society Circles DisgU3tsl wltb Cleveland
San Francisco, March 13. Chronicle's
Washington special: Society circles are
terribly shocked at President Cleveland's
plebiau habit of breakfasting at 8 o'clock
and working in his shirt sleeves. During
Mr. Arthur's administration the White
house grew to be a sort of Windsor castie,
to lie admitted to which all society people
felt honored. They are now disposed to
look upon Cleveland as a crusty old bach
elor, with severe ideas of business and a
real contempt for society. Therefore society
feels a little rebellious, and some of its
leaders have already resolved to keep away
from the White House altogether. People
who are well acquainted with the president
say that this resolve, if faithfully kept, will
afford him almost as much satisfaction as
the withdrawal of the politicians.
The Strike Over.
Hannibal, Mo., March 15. The rail
road has notified the strikers that wages
will be restored to the same as those which
were paid in October, 1884. This caused
great joy among the men, and everybody
is jubilant. Trains that have been blocked
for the past two weeks were fired up and
Dover, Del., March 16. Attorney Gen
eral George A. Gray, has been nominated as
sucessor of United States Senator Bavard

on green fruits and vegetables from the Pa
cific coast to points east. The rate per 10C
pounds by freight train to St. Louis and
New Orleans will be $1.45, and to Chicago

greatly encourage the shipment of fruits
rom here to the east.
The Texas Legislature.
Austin, Texas, March 12. The senate
to-day, under suspension of the rules, passed
the house bill providing that railroad com
panies shall render an account of theirs roll
ing stock to the assessors of the various
counties through which the roads pass, and
the comptroller shall then apportion be
tween the counties. The hill now goes to
the governor. Last night the senate, after
a sharp prolonged discussion, passed at
midnight, under suspension of the rules,
the Shannon bill to protect persons in the
j employment of railroad companies, and
tn --e wao may wisn to Decome employes
thereof. The bill was drafted by Governor
Ireland. It provides thirty days notice shall
be given persons in the employment of rail
ways before their wages can be reduced.

A War Tax.
London, March 15. Excitement has
been caused in commercial circles hy an ap
parently well founded report that the Gov
ernment, in its budget for 1885, will recom
mend an increase in the duty on tea. In
consequence of this report many of the
bonded warehouses have been almost cleared
of their stores of tea. Among the well in
formed it is believed that the tax on beer
and the duties on cigars and the more ex
pensive wii.es will be raised by the Govern
ment. London, ?.Iarch 13. In the honse of
commons this afternoon Gladstone an
nounced that an agreement has been arrived
at between Russia and England by the
terms of which neither the Russian nor the
Afghan forces would advance any farther
mi either side of the frontier. Tiie agree
ment was to last as long as there was occa
sion for it.
Sp?rlt of the Press.
London, March 14. The Standard says:
"The agreement between England and Rus
sia leaves the essence of the ditficulty un
touched. Matters must have been tad
when such an agreement was paraded as a
diplomatic ffiin. Many consider this pause
in the situation the prelude to surrender."
The News still fears for the result of
negotiations between England and Russia,
r.nd is doubtful of a peaceful solution.
Russia Preparing for War.
Berlin, March 16. Baron "Von B'och
reader is negotiating with other capitalists,
with a view to placing the new Russian
loan. Baron Von Biochreader is not on'y
one of the most eminent bankers oi Berlin,
but is also confidential advisor of Bismark
in financial affairs. His appearance in the
market as hV-a! agent of Russia would
therefore be very significant, and would in
dicate that war with England was seriously
intended by Russia.
