HAY S PROBABLE RETIREMENT.
Washington', June 19. Special. The
visit of Dallas Sauilent of Philadelphia to
this city aain revives the report of the
probable retirement of First Assistant Postmaster-General
Hays. The work of the first
assistant ef the department has increased
over a hundred fold since the advent of the
new administration and it is next to impos
sible for a man in Hay's delicate state of
-health to manage it successfully or as
promptly as is expected. He is compelled
"to leave his office frequently After working
two or three hours and seek the rest his
health requires. His retirment will neces
sitr.te a complete reorganization of the first

cessor; James H. Marr, the preseut chief
c!rk for the first assistant postm.'ister -general,

DISPOSING OF EXHIBITS.
V'ashington, June 19. The Indian ex
liiiiitat the New Orleans exhibition will
jir bably be presented to the French gov-
anient, as the representatives of that
li ; ion have indicated a desire to secure a
collection which exhibits the progress made
by Indian tribes toward civilization. The
entire government exhibit has now been
transported to this city, 1309 cases being,
required for the purpose. Part of the ex
hibition will probably be turned over to
the Smithsonian institution for permanent
JUDGE LAWTON's APPOINTMENT.
San Francisco, June 21. Surprises have
followed so fast since President Cleveland
began to fill federal offices in California
that the totally unlooked for appointment
of Judge Israel Lawtou to the supe rill ten -dency
of the mint was received with apathy
J more unexpected event, however, could
hardly have occured, as Judge Lawton was
never heard of here in connection with the
mint until news that he was made ruler of
it arrived. So certain did Mr. Hendricks'
apuointinent as superintendent of the mint
appear that he was besieged by applicants
for places, He was even invited by a prom
inent republican office holder to inspect his
future department, and, it is said, twice
made a tour of the mint, with a view of ob
taining a clear idea of his prospective duties
Among the. applicants that found favor with
Mr. Hendricks, and were to have been in
stalled under his patronage for the next
four years, was Joe Van Prague, who is
said to have been promised the appointment
of custodian of coins. A resident of Plu
mas county, and a friend of Senator Kellogi
felt sis sure Mr. Hendricks would be tin
next superintendent and he himself an em
ployee thereof, that he actually settled up
his affairs iu Piumas county and moved to
this city to await the arrival of Mr. Hen
dricks' commission. Vlen such confidence
was reposed in the candidacy of the vice
president's nephew, the effect of his rejec
tion must have besn stunning to politicians.
THE CANADIAN PACIFIC.
San Francisco, June 21. Speaking of
the near completion of the Canadian Pacific
railroad, the Call says: 'It proposes to
cary emigrants from Halifax on the Atlan
tic, to Port Moody on the Pacific, for $15.
This is the lowest emmigrant transcontinen
tal rate ever offered. Further, it has fixed
25 as immigrant ate from Liverpool to the
Pacific ocean. No other overland route and
ocean line ever combined to carry passen
gers for this sum from Europe i.cross tin
American continent. Little has been said
of the Canadian P.eilie in America, but all
over Europe its descriptive pamphlets haw
fallen thick as December snow Hakes. It is tilled Kansas men accordingly. Cool!

SUNK THROUGH CARELESSNESS.
New York, June 19. The steamer Guy
andotte, of the old Dominnion steamship
line, which was lying at the pier at North
river, was sunk this morning early by the
carelessness of two firemen. They pulled a
plug twelve inches iu diameter out of the
bottom of the vessel, and the water rushed
in with such rapidity they barely had time
to escape with their lives. All on board the
steamer had rushed on the dock as the
steamer sank soon afterwards. The vessel
will be raised, She was built abont two
years ago, and cost $800,000. The damage
to her furniture, carpets tiuishing and ma-
hinery will amount to $25,000. That part
of the cargo left on board was injured fully
SERIOUS TROUBLE THREATENED.
St. Louis, June 21. Advices from
Northern Texa3 are to the effect that seri
ous trouble is looked for ill the "panhan
dle" over the driving of southern Texas cat
tle through Kansas. Thousand of cattle
are going up the Fort Worth and Denver
railroad, to be unloaded at Harrold and
then driven through. It is claimed these
cattle are diseased, and if allowed to go on
will spread Texas fever along the line of
travel. Kansas men are determined to re
sist with all means in their power any effort
to drive southern Texas cattle through the
neutral strip, or "no man's land," as it is
called. It is said that the promise of See
t etary Lamar has been obtained to interpose
the strong arm of the government to pre
vent it and that the United Stales marshal
with a strong posse, armed with govern
ment authority, will by Monday meet the
first herd bound for Kansas, and they will
turn the cattle liack or prevent their en
trance into the neutral strip. Southern
Tevas men are very angry over the matter
md pronounce it a scare without reason;
ay their cattle are healthy and they will
ight before their rights shall be subverted.
They are determined to drive into Kansas,
and claim that Secretary Lamar has granted
them protection to go through, and has no-
iight oven-oats acceptable to well persons.
The storm this morning threw down th
one wire from tho mountain, thus cut of?
communication with the outer world.
THINKS GRANT WILf. RECOVER.
Philadelphia, June 22. The press says:
Dr. Newman preached here at the dedication
of the Newburg Methodist church yesterday.
He said: I left Mt. McGregor Saturday.
I ieneral Grant knows that he is afflicted
with a presumably incurable complaint, and

think the sick man's strength will be recruited
in his coo mountain home. Cancer, if his
suffering is from that malady, kills through

power will be so far recruited as to enable
him to keep the disease iu obeyauee, and for
a time possibly to vanquish it. The Gen

GRASSHOPPERS IS CALIFORNIA.

SOUTHERN ORECON INDIANS TO AvE A RES
ERVATION. Washington, June 22. General Pope has
transmitted to the war department an ac
count of the killing of a Piute Indian named
Joe, by two white men in Happy Valley, Or
egon. In commenting upon the killing,
General Pope again inviees attention to
white and Indian outrages which are in
creasing in frequency in the sou thern part of
Oregon. He says the Piutes having no res
ervation, are willing to go and freqnent that
country for subsistence, by hunting and
fishing. The state of affairs now existing is
certain to grow worse, and must finally cul
minate in open hostilities, unless a reserva
tion is assigned these Indians, and they
are placed on it. The commissioner of In
dian affairs has directed the agent te inves
tigate the circumstances and report measures
iooking to the protection -of the Indians.
ritory, and the fact that the Canadian Pa
cific will carry immigrants from the Atlan
tic to the Pacific for Sly will certainly
compel a modification of third-class rates
on American roads. The Canadian Pacific
will also enter the race for the trade of the
Orient. " A gentleman connected with tho
Cauaiiian Pacific said a few days ago that a
fast hue of steamers would be put on be
tween its western terminus and China and
Japan. He said that Loth the laud and the
sea route would be shorter than those by
the southern lines. For this reason it is
expected that the Canadian Pacific will be
an active competitor for Pacific coast trade,
both east and west bound."'

A POLYGAMOUS WIFE SENT TO JAIL.
Salt Lake, Jnne 22. On Saturday
Charles L. White was arrested on a charge
of unlawful cohabitation, and had a partial
examination before United States Commis
sioner McKay. The polygamous wife, a
mere child, was asked by the proseecutiou
if she was married to defendent. She de
clined to answer, and all other questions.
She was fined $50 and imprisoned until
this morning for contempt. When the case
was called this morning defendent waive 1
further examination, and was bound over iu

He was at ence re-arrested, on a charge of
