The fees paid the meesemrers who

Secretary Noble has addressed a com
munication to the Commissioner of In
dian Affairs, setting forth his conclusions
of the strained relations between J. Le-
roy Brown, acting United States Indian
agent at Pine Ridge and Dr. Charles A.
feaatman of the Sioux Indian asencv.
The Secretary's conclusion is that good
service requires that Dr. Eastman shall
be suspended from acting as physician
at Pine Ridge agency, and unless Dr.
Eastman can be assigned or appointed
to another place he is willing to accept
within the next fifteen days he must re
sign, or he will be removed. The Secre
tary finds there is no reasonable ground
to find fault with the conduct of acting
Agent Brown in this connection.

to be run upon a rock and hazarded."
The vessel was the Mohican, which John
son commanded, and the grounding took
place off the Alaska coast. Snch is the
vessel to which he Was assigned after a
suspension for several years for the same
offense for which he was dismissed. The
court found him guilty of the three
charges preferred, and sentenced him to
dismissal. Secretary Tracy has approved
the findings, and this action has been
confirmed by President Harrison.
Secretary Noble haa transmitted in re
sponse to a resolution of the House his
report concerning the executive order of
November 19, by which that part of
Utah lying west of the 110th meridian
was restored to the public domain, with
all the correspondence on the subject.
The documents show this land was
thrown open to settlement for the pur
pose of allowing the people of the United
States an opportunity of exploring the
placer fields in search of gold and other
valuable minerals. All the facts con
nected with the restoration were pub
lished generally throughout the West at
the time the President's message was is
sued. A telegram has been received
from Colonel Hunt of the army, report
ing that no prospectors had nor were In
truding on the Navajo reservation.

that no pension shall be paid any per

that no widow pensioner should receive
a pension unless she was married to a
soldier previous to 1870. Thepropoei
tion to authorise the Commissioner oi
Pensions to detail medical examiners
from the pension office to act as exam
ining surgeons and abolish the Board of
Examining Surgeons was also rejected.
