have the matter righted, and a statement
recently forwarded to the department at

neously supposed, will probably help
greatly in straightening the matter out.

FROM WASHINGTON CITY.
The House Committee on Territories Re
ports Favorably on the Admission
of Utah Into the Union.
The President has determined to leave
the Crater Lake and Mount Hood reser
vation to his successor.
The House Commerce Committee has
adopted the report of the subcommittee
on the bill to allow pooling by railroads
under supervision ol the Interstate Uom
The Senate Interstate Commerce Com
mission by a vote of 6 to 5 rejected the
railroad pooling provision amendment
to the Cullom bill, and will report the
Din as thus amended.
The House Committee on Territories
without division has ordered favorably
reported the bill enabling Utah to form
constitution and state government
and to be admitted into the Union.
Senator Dolph has introduced a bill
for the relief of the Blalock Wheat
Growing Company, which was referred
to the Committee on Public Lands and
will probably be reported favorably soon.
In reporting to the House the Com
mittee on Election of President says rel
ative to the bill repeaUng the Federal
supervision of election statute that "vo
ters must be freed from such esnionaee
and interference," and that "the people
have decided Federal meddling with
elections must cease."
It is now certain that the sundry civil
appropriation biU wiU contain a provi
sion to allow the four States admitted in
the omnibus bill the preference right of
sixty days to select lands for their pub
lic institutions. Attorney-ueneral Jones
says this is worth $7,000,000 to the school
interests ot Washington.
The lighthouse bill, which passed the
House, contains the following appropri
ations for Oregon and Washington : At
the mouth of the Willamette river. Or..
a light and fog signal, $6,009; at Gray's
Harbor, Wash., a first-order lighthouse
and fog signal, at a cost not to exceed
S6,(XX), in addition to the appropriation
of $15,500 already made: on the north
head of Cape Disappointment, Wash., a
first-order lighthouse, not to cost more
than W0.008. and when the light shall
have been established the light at Cape
Disappointment will be discontinued
and a light of the fourth order to be sub
stituted therefor; at twenty-five points
on the Willamette river between Salem
and Portland, beacon lights and buoys.
at a cost not exceeding $5,000, and the
same to be expended under the direction
of the Secretary of the Treasury. Rep
resentative Wilson has already secured
in the sundry civil appropriation bill a
provision for a lighthouse at Gray's
Perhaps the most important meeting
of the Finance Committee of the Senate
held during this Congress was that which
resulted in the decision of a favorable
report of the biU to repeal the Sherman
silver purchase act. Subsequently Sher
man reported the bill, and it was placed
on the calendar. The meeting was large
ly attended, every member being pres
ent except Senators Jones and Vance,
who is ill. While a majority was in fa
vor of the action taken, a vigorous op-
sition was manifested by Harris of
enneasee and Voorhees ol Indiana.
Those who voted to report the bill favor
ably were Morrill, bherman, Allison, Al
drich, Hiscock, McPherson and Carlisle.
Senators voorhees and Harris entered
an emphatic protest against the proposed
action of the committee, and would have
been jiined by Senators Jones and Vance
had they been present. The meeting is
said to have been interesting. This is
probably in reference to the speeches
made by Harris and Voorhees. They
were outvoted, however, and the discus
sion will now be transferred to the floor
of the Senate. Senator McPherson said
the bill was satisfactory to him, althongh
he would rather have had his resolution
reported. One feature he did not ap
prove was that which postponed the
time to January 1, 1894 but still he
thought it afforded a relief, for the peo
ple would know at that time at least that
the present lunation ol currency would
end and the country would return to
currency and money not debased. Teller
and Voorhees do not believe the bill can
pass, and Voorhees is credited with say
ing that not ten Democratic Senators
will vote for it.
The proposed Seattle canal has met
with a serious obstacle by points raised
by engineers and scientific men who
have visited that point and given some
attention to the climatic conditions and
topography ot the lands and the country
surrounding Lakes Union and Washing
ton. It appears now that, it this canal
should be built, a deDth of water suffi
cient to be of any use for floating ships
into the fresh-water lakes would be so
great a drain upon the lakes as to mate
rially lower their depth. There is not
sufficient rainfall in that vicinity nor
sufficient water-shed to these lakes to
keep up the supply. As a consequence
the outflow would soon drain the lakes
This question will no doubt come up so
soon as another attempt is made to put
the bill through the llouse or senate.
That it will make a great difference in
the consideration of the bill there can
be no doubt. As a matter of fact it may
be positively stated that Congress does
not intend to dig this ditch, and that it
will accept any theory like tils advanced
by scientific men and refuse the in
dorsement of the Seattle scheme. Of
eourse, the members of Congress cannot
be expected to understand the topogra
phy of these lakes and the lands sur
rounding them nor to know whether
there is not sufficient water-shed or rain
fall to supply the demand that a huge
ship canal would demand, bat It may be
certain that before any action will be
taken a scientific commission will be ap
pointed to make the investigation and
aasertain whether conditions exist which
would drain the lakes and render the
ditch useless after $3,300,000 or more has
been expended upon it.
