Senator Power of Montana in an interview, says he thinks the silver advocates in last congress made a mistake in trying to adopt a measure providing for the abso lute free coinage of silver. He did not think in was sound policy to jump too quickly to free coinage of white metal. It will not do for three silver producing states to attempt to dictate the financial policy of the whole country. I do not believe it best to adopt free coinage while bullion is worth only $l'per ounce. When legislation is enacted that will advance the price of bullion, free coinage law will follow naturally.

A big council of Indians was held at the agency four miles east of here. All day yesterday some thirty head men were present, and listened with reverence to the guttural orations of their leaders. The nature of their principle demands, i Dneny given, is us loiiows: "A confer-! ence is wanted with Register Cleaver of ! the La Grande office." This request! ,will doubtless be granted. Mr. Cleaver has been notified and will wobablv be here the latter part of the week. The cash received for the land must be I delivered at once to the Indians, else tney tnreaten to prevent the sale irom being made. The threat of course is an : idle one. An emphatic protest is made against the appointment of E. J. Sumnierville, to whom the Indians appear to have taken a dislike as one of the allotment commissioners. The -Indians sav thev will prevent him from coming on the reservation. Whether this will have any effect is doubtful, as Mr. Summer ville is said to be strongly recommended. lne government has carried out its contract to the letter, anil has advanced at last so far that it will not recede. The Indians first agreed to take 120,000 acres, to be allottxi m severalty. Then thev. asked for 12,900 acres more and their request was complied with. Now that the government is ready to sell the remaining 148,000 acres it will do it in spite of protest. The Indians purposely interpreted the Slater bill to mean that their allotments shall le made prior to sale, and that the lands not needed by them shall after wards be sold. They cannot or will not understand the act" to mean that so much has been set aside for their use, and that the surplus land will all be 6old. They professed to believe that if the diminished reservation is not suffic ient for their wants, they may draw on the surplus lands, and", many Indians have flocked to the reservation since the census, on which the division is based, in order that as much land might . be secured as possible. ' TT- COLOKED PRESS ASSOCIATION. The Opening; Address by the President Fnll of Indignant Statements. Cincinnati, March 17. The seventh annual convention of the Colored Press Association of the United States began a session here today. President John Mitchell, jr., in his address, called at tention to the increase of outrages in the south, to the plain violation of rights of the citizens, etc. The attitude of the two political parties, he said, was cause of serious alarm. The defeat of the Blair educational bill and the failure to favor the elections bill were pointers to the drift of public sentiment in the south of these parties. - The time - was not far distant when a free American would strike back. The republican party of the nation, he said, owing to treachery in its ranks, has greviously disappointed the colored mau. In future the colored man must help himself aud do all he can to elevate his condition. DEATH OF A CENTENARIAN. David Ross Munroe. Probably the Old- est Man in Oregan. Hillsboko, March 17. David Ross Munroe, an old pioneer, from Scotland and through the Hudson bay service, died Sunday and was buried today. It is supposed he was the oldest man in Oregon. In his youth he was drafted in the wars against Napoleon Bonaparte, but was not in active service as he was only seventeen at the time of Walerloo. He arrived in, Oregon in 1842, and has resided here ever since. Men who are now old knew him as an old man when they were boys. Dudley Munroe has been supposed to be almost a living fos sil for many years, though able to walk and travel about until a few weeks ago. There can be no doubt that he was over 100 years old. WORLD'S FAIR MISCELLANY. Tennyson Made an Honorary Member and Asked for a Song. Chicago, March 17.

The belief is, however, that he will tr to write a song. Anna Dlekinson Getting Better. Albany, N. Y., March 17. A letter from a sister of Anna Dickinson, re ceived by F. H. Brand of this city, says : "The brothers have already persuaded Anna to take regular meals and she is beginning to secure natural sleep, so there is every hope of her early recovery to health. Then she could go abroad to Carlsbad springs for a time, and then have a southern winter. If the men and newspapers who say they are going to help her to funds will really do so, there is no doubt she will yet be able to do good work in the world again. - ConBdent of Having Tascott. Chicago, March 17. Attorney Longe necker is confident that the man under arrest at Aberdeen, S.

THE SEWFOCNntAXD LOBSTERS. The Quarrel With France May Result In Union With the United States. Montreal, March 17. A private let ter has been received here, from a gov ernment official at St. Johns, N. F., which says of the existing difficulties : "It is known that England arrived at no agreement with France for the settle ment of our difficulties, but instead has consented to arbitrate the question of French rights to build lobster factories on the coast which has never been claimed by France, ami England has or will re fuse to ratify our commercial treaty with the United States. The day for recon ciliation has now passed and a move ment is on foot not for reciprocity but for admission into the American union." We have too much experience with Brit ish injustice to seek more by entering into the Canadian confederation. The people are . not alone in this matter, but have the support of many members of both governments. What is more, it is almost an open -secret, that the dele gation is now preparing to visit Wash ington to guage the feeling and find whether the terms for this could be " brought about. TO BOYCOTT GERMANY. President Harrinon Determined to Pro teet American Indnstries. , New Yokk, March 19. A Washington special says that President Harrison is determined upon summary measures to relieve American ports which are subject to so much German opposition.

Q I The announcement is nothing less j than a threat and the result will be in j teresting. j The state department otticials refused to discuss tne matter ttns morning. There is no doubt but that such a communication lias been sent to Minister Phelps for the president so informed a senator who called upon him this morn ing. A Cofferdam Gives Way.
