General Mile Still Parleying With the
St. Louis, Jan. 12. A Post dispatch,
special, from Pine Ridge agency reads :
"General Miles determined this morning
not. to parley nor confer aeain with the
Indians, and this morning he sent a
message to the hostile's camp at Mission
stating his terms. He said they must
come to thi agency in small sqnads and
go into camp on grounds near the friendly
Indians. He would not obiect if thev
chose their own company grounds ; but
nruies ana ugallas must not camp to
gether, and. they must submit to the law
governing the reservation and to the
agent." It is learned from official sources
that this is General Miles' final action.
If the Indians don't accept these terms
Miles will go after them, and there will
be to figltt sure. ' : '; v '

The Behring Sea Controversy.
London, Jan. 10. The Chronicle, com
menting on the "Behring sea controversy,
says : "If it be true that Blaine has sug
gested that a commission proceed to
Alaska and reporton the condition of the
fishery, he has taken a very prudent
course, likely to remove the deadlock.
We hope the British government will
lose no time in giving the proposal sup
port." Berlin, Jan. 10. The Behring sea
question is discussed by the press of the
country as having no special relation to
German interests. The tendency of
opinion is distinctly in favor of arbitra
tion. Reports which, however, are un
confirmed, credit the government with
taking the initiative in suggesting that
the governments at London and AVash
ington appoint an arbitration tribunal,
composed of eminent jurists selected
from the neutral powers. The idea is
scouted that the difference can possibly
result in an armed conflict.

Berlin, Jan. 8.-The Post announces

Washington', Jan. 12. Senator Quay
to-day introduced a bill entitled, an act
to prevent force and fraud in federal
elections, and to insure lawful and peace
ful conduct thereof. The principal point
of difference between his bill and Hoar's
bill is in the last section which is as
follows: "When it shall appear to the
satisfaction of the president of the United
States that in any locality provisions of
this law cannot otherwise be executed it
shall be his duty to suspend the writ of
habeas corpus and to employ armed forces
of the United States naval and military
for its enforcement.

THE DALLES OF THE COLUMBIA.
Two Flonrshing Towns in the Centre of
a Prolific Section. '
The head of navigation in all naviga
ble rivers is a point at which the establi
shment of a city becomes a necessity.
The surrounding country decides by its
productions whether that city shall be
great or small, fortunate or unfortonate.
In this regard the City of the Dalles is
to be specially congratulated, for in
whichever direction one may travel there
exists a stretch of the most productive
grazing and agricultural lands in the
State of Oregon. This city has become
the natural outlet for the products of
these thousands of acres, and its ware
houses handle the fruits of the earth to a
value extending into the million each
year. The product of the surrounding
wheat country will average two million
bushels annually ; its grazing lands pro
duce seven million pounds of wool in the
same period. Fruits of all kind flourish
in abundance, the apple, pear, peach,
plum, and varieties of berries growing
with a magnitude and luxuriance which
to the Eastern fruit producer is "bewilder
ing. Ismail tracts of ten and twenty
acres give to their owners an incoms of
irom five to eight thousand dollars per
year. In, the midst of this prosperity
stands she city of the Dalles. San Fran
