Major-General Miles, commanding the

post buildings, especially those on what
waa formerly the Indian frontier. Oen.
Miles believes that the freedom of the
country of late from Indian outbreaka
la to be ascribed to the fact that the
Indians now receive better treatment
from the government; that tbey are
more Impressed with the power of tha
army to punish them and that their
affairs are In many cases managed by
competent army officers. Therefore.
he recommends that the same policy as
to the Indians be continued.
General Miles again devotes a hurt
portion of his report to consideration of
the questions of coast defense and re

General Miles renews his former rec
ommendations for an Increase of the
army on the ground that It has not
kept pace with the increased wealth of
public and private Interests, and he
suggests that the enlisted strength of
the army be fixed at one soldier to

maximum strength not to exceed one

The British authorities In India have
goni to work systematically to meet
the dreadful situation forced upon them
by the famine, which la bringing dis
tress to well-nigh half the population of
Hindustan, and imperilling millions of
lives. All leaves of atmence to civil
servants have been revoked, and every
one must be In his place to share In
the conduct of the great administrative
machinery which the dear-bought ex
perience of lesaer famlnea has led the
authorities to devise. As the sole
method of affording relief without at
the same time pauperising the sufferers
vast worka of Internnl Improvement
have been commenced, at which every
applicant can have employment, at
wanes pitifully small, Indeed, but still
autllclent to keep aoul and body to

swamps, digging canals, opening roads
through the mountains, and like lm
provements of a permanent character-
such, however, aa the government
would not have felt Itself Justified 'In
undertaking except for the relief which
the money to be thus expended will
bring to an Imperilled population. The
sick, aged and Infirm are cared for by
direct gifts from the government or by
private dole. Still all means at the
command ot the authorities and all the
private benevolence of the better off
among the people ran only lessen the
horrors' of the situation. Not a few of
our readers may have heard the painful
atory of a former Indian famine from
our countryman, Ilev. John E. Clough,
of Iowa, who, during Its prevalence In
1R77-8, suspended his labors as a Chris
tian missionary to take charge of some
of the government relief work In Telu
gulund. The strain upon 'Mr. Clough's
nerves and sympathies amid the har
rowing scenes of that famine was such
aa to change hla appearance In a single
season from that of a young, vigorous
man to that of one prematurely aged
and broken. And all Americans and
Englishmen In India whose memory
goes back to those days now look for

like scenes In a wider region, during

Stricken with Heart Failure While on
the Main Yard.
Captain Junes, of the British ship
Cambrian Princess, which arrived yes
terday, from Santos, reports the death
of Clinrk'8 Martin, an able bodied sea
man, under peculiar circumstances.
Martin was at work on the main yard
with Boatswain McLean, taking gas
kets as they were thrown to htm, when
suddenly he stopped work. Noticing
his distress, McLean Inquired If he was
III, but, receiving no reply, climbed over
to Martin. He found him lying across
the yard, his feet hanging over one
side and his head and arms over the
other. McLean again addressed Mar
tin, and, receiving no answer, placed
his hand on Martin's shoulder, only to
find that the poor fellow was dead. Mc
Leun tied a rope around the body and
lowered It to the deck. Heart failure
was the cause of the death. The body
waa burled at sea.
Captain Carnegie, of the British ship
IVrxlan. which arrived yesterday, in
conversation with an Astorian report
er last night, said:
'We left Nagasaki October 1 and had
light, variable winds for about seven
teen days, until we reached latitude
40 north. After that the shlD made
from 220 to 240 miles a day for ten
days, and we then encountered a suc
cession of easterly gales, lasting six
days. The wind blew very hard at
times and we were forced to heave to
for three days under main topsail. After
that we had a good run of westerly
winds right In to the coast, arriving
off the river yesterday (Tuseday) at
noon. We got a pilot at 1:30, about
fifteen miles off the Cape. We were
rather late In reaching the river, so had
to wait outside until today. We made
the passage In thirty-eight days."
