Carson, Nev., May 11. The appropri
ation for the Stewart institute of the
Nevada Indian school having run short,
word was received from Washington bv
Superintendent Gibson that employe's
who desired to remain must work from
May 10 to July 1 without compensation
of any kind, and must also pav the gov
ernment regular lates for board .and
lodging during this time as before.
Considerable dissatisfaction has been
awakened. The principal, teacher,
seamstress, assistant matron and indus
trial teacher have passed in their resig
nations. Several other attaches have
agreed to remain along with the superin
tendent. The future outlook for crops at the
school are very bright, nearly every acre
is under cultivation, which if neglected
for any length of time, will go to ruin.
Fruit trees have . been planted, wind
mills, shops, etc , put up, which in con
junction with the school and home in
dustries, furnishes work and education
for over 100 Indian boys and girls.
OP THE CATERPILLAR TYPE.
A New Bug Makes Its Appearance Among
the Prune Orchards of California.
San FKANcisco.'May 11. A few mil
lion worms of the. caterpillar tvpe are
making unhappy the lives of the Santa
Clara prune-growers just at present. In
the Willows district, near San Jose, and
off on the hills toward Saratoga, many
orchards are seriously affected by the
depredators. No one has yet identified
the unwelcome visitors, but Entomolo
gist Craw, of the state board of horticul
ture, has been appealed to for informa
tion, both as to the character of the leaf
eaters and for an effective method of
killing them. ? A horticulturist . who
looked about several of the bestorchards
yesterday, says that many trees look as
though bird shot had. riddled the tops.
The branches in places have been eaten
entirely bare of leaves.
OPINION OP. LAWYERS.
They Think the Government Has the
Right to Capture the Itata.
' San Fbancisco,- May 11. The after
noon papers print interviews with law
yers as to the legal status in ease the
Charleston should overtake or sink the
Itata. The views expressed were that
while the Itata flies the Chilian flag,
according to all advices received, she is
not a representative of any constituted
authority. Balmaceda is still the head
of Chilian government, and be alone is
recognized by foreign governments. The
Itata was a government vessel, but Bhe
was seized by the insurgents and is being
used against the recognized government,
and therefore the insurgents have no
standing under the present legal status
of the case. In case the Esmeralda in
terferes to prevent the capture of the
Itata, she can also only be considered in
the same category as the Itata.
The Czar Evidently Angered by Inter
ference of the Rothschilds.
St. Pktebsbubg, Mav 11. The Rus
sian government, replying to the Roths
childs, stated that, the czar's Jewish
policy had nothing whatever to do with
the ministry of finance, and the Roths
childs have nor right -.to interfere with
Russia's internal .policy.' ; It is believed
nere tnis action will make the lxisition
of the Jews worse and will be detrimen
tal to tbe Rothschilds' interest in the
petroleum industry of the Caucasus.
The czar has ordered Jewish banker
Ciin8burg to quit St. Petersburg for mak
nig an open attemp to. influence the
minister of the interior to ameliorate the
condition of the Jews bv offering 1,000,
000 roubles to charity.
Canada and American Cattle.
Ottawa, Out., May 11. The Canadian
government nns made overtures' to the
imperial authorities to learn whether
tne present arrangements, under the
operation of which cattle are exported
from Canada to Great Britain, can be
continued if American cattle are allowed
to be slaughtered in , bond within the
Dominion. This refers to the- proposed
Bender Dead Meat company, for its
abattoirs are at Three Rivers," to which
the Canadian cattle-shippers are opposed
on the ground that it would place their
trade in danger of being scheduled with
that of the Americans in British ports,
thus depriving them of the present dis
crimination in favor of. the Canadian

New Phase of the Blythe Case. .
San Fbancisco, May 11. James Pye

of the attorneys for the Blvthe company,

A Possible Kniiii .. Uuler.
The court jmd the'pumic cnex-ally are
regarding Princess Margaret of Prussia,
who accompanies her imperial mother to
England, with a good leul of curiosity.
It is hinted somewhat openly that one
object of the Emprpss Frederick's visit
here is to do her best to arrange a mar
riage for Albert Victor. Dnke of Clar
ence, and her .daughter, his first cousin,
despite the fact that the Prince of Wales
eldest son is undoubtedly in love with
his second cousin; Princess May of Teck,
and has apparently his father's permis
sion to continue so.
However, the queen cannot get over
the. fact that Princess. May is the daugh
ter of that Mary f Cambridge of whom
she was so jealous in the days when the
late Prince Albert first came a-courting;
and so, as young Albert Victor has no
spirit of his own, it is not unlikely that
the announcement of his engagement
with the Princess Margaret will come to
us before the empress has concluded her
visit here. Margaret of Prussia seems
to be a delightful and highly educated
yonng woman, but there is no doubt
that she has a will of her own, like her
imperial mother and royal grandmother..
It is equally certain that Albert Victor
is about as sickly and effeminate a speci
men of a young man as could be found,
even among heirs to thrones. So if
Margaret becomes queen of England we
will still remain under petticoat govern
ment London Cor. Chicago News.
Immersed in Molten Metal and Not Burned
But few men have ever fallen into a
pot of molten metal and escaped with a
few trifling bums, yet John Adams, of
Tacoma. did it the other night. He is
an employe of the Ryan smelter, work
ing on the night shift, and it is only
through great presence of mind that he
was not burned to death.' By some mis
step he lost bis balance and started to
fall headlong into an immense pot of
molten metal. As he fell he caught the
rim of the pot, and although he was im
mersed almost to his armpits he drew
himself out, and with an almost super
human effort threw himself into an ad
joining pot filled with cold water.
. Some of his fellow workmen saw him
cast himself into the second pot, and
rushing to his assistance rescued him.
His hands were badly burned, but other
wise he had hardly a scar on him. Tiro
secret of his escape was that he had on
heavy woolen underwear and outer
clothing, and before it had been burned
through Adams was in the pot of cold
water. Tacoma Globe.
This Woman Had Nerve.
Among the many callers at the late
residence of General Johnston was a
well dressed woman, who drove up in a
handsome equipage' and' asked to see a
representative of the family. She-would
not give her name, bufsho told Dr. Ben
Johnston, who perceived ber, that she
wished a lock of General Johnston's hair
for her collection. .
"I have," she said with entire self pos
session, "a lock of General Lee's hair, a
lock of General Grant's and a lock of
General Sheridan's, and I would like a
lock of General Johnston's."
As soon as Dr. Johnston recovered his
self possession he told his caller that her
remarkable request could not be granted.
She left regretfully, not on account of
her request, but of his refusal. Wash

The Cowcatcher Carried On her Colt.
A valuable mare and colt escaped from
the barnyard of Abiah Hayes, the noted
stock raiser, of Cincinnati, recently, just
as a freight train came thundering down
toward an adjacent crossing.. The colt
got in the way of the train and was
caught on the cowcatcher, in despite of
the mare's anxious neighing. The long
train could not be stopped nntil it had
run the better part of a mile. Then the
colt rolled off unhurt. The mare had
wildly leaped culverts and crossing
fences, and was almost np with the en
gine when her unharmed colt fell safely
down the side of the track. Cor. Phikv
