Much Comment Kegardlng tha Attltode , of T aroma Superintendent of School lo Selecting Teachers. Tacoma, Wash. There has been much comment of late regarding the attitude of School Superintendent James in re letting teachers. Some of those, inter ested believe Mr. James is too fond of young and inexperienced women teach ers. The principals also have a griev ance. They seem to think Mr. James does not consult them sufficiently in making selections of teachers and in carrying out the school work. They held a meeting recently and notified the Su perintendent of their views, and he is understood to have replied that he had not intended to act without their advice. There is no doubt about the existence of dissatisfaction among interested persons as regards the present school manage ment. The opposition to the removal of Superintendent tiault still asserts itself, and (iault's friends feel that the high standard bf Tacoma public schools ex isting at the time of his resignation is not now being kept up. The principals' objections are being considered by the School Board. They oppose further re ductions in the salary of grade teachers on the statement that the Seattle prin cipals will do it, which statement thev say m erroneous, lliey oppoue me al iened interference of Superintendent James in school work. When this mat ter takes form before the public it will create a lively discussion. In order to secure a change of policy an increase of School Directors to one for each ward is proposed. KOK X IV-CKNT FA UK. Man Kn.ncl.co Will Cialn a Park If the Movement Succeed. Sax Frakcihio, Cal. A big mass meeting was held here, at which citizens demanded that the Southern Pacific Company, which controls most of the street railways in the city, grant a 6-cent fare from the ferries to the ocean. Adolph Sutro, the millionaire philan thropist who is said to own one-tenth of the entire area of San Francisco, has offered to give his famous Sutro Heights property overlooking the ocean for a public park, provided the fare to the beach is reduced from 10 to 5 cents. Sutro values the property at $1,000,000. The meeting adopted long resolutions relative to the bill now pending in Con gress to refund the Southern Pacific rail road debts, making there obligations payable in 100 years, with interest at 2 per cent. The preamble declares that such legislation would rob the people of the United Mates and practically amount to a gift of (76,000,000 to the Central Pacific Railway Company; that under the law s of California the individ ual stockholders are personally liable. LAKE CANAL QUESTION. Offer of Fund to Dig It by the Brewing and Malting Company. Seattle, WASH.The Lake Washing ton canal matter again came up for dis cussion before the Chamber of Commerce at its meeting recently, and the offer made by the Seattle Brewing and Malt ing Company to give $30,000 in thirty monthly installments toward the work was discussal at some length. Some of the members were in favor of widening the present canal for the purpose of low ering the lake, thinking that this was hardly the time to build a ship canal. The offer was made for a ship canal only, however, and others thought the work could be accomplished by home capital. The matter was referred to the permanent Lake Washington canal committee, con sisting of I). II. Uilman, S. L.Crawford, A. P. Mitten, George H. Heilbron and C. D. Stimson, with a request that they investigate and report promptly. : A Bather Unexpected Order. San Francisco, Cal. Orders have just been issued from army headquarters for the movement of the following batteries of heavy artillery : Batteries B and M, Fifth Artillery, now at the Presidio and Fort Mason, to proceed June 9 to Fort Canby ; Battery I, now at Alcatrax, to go to Fort Mason. Of the two batteries now at Fort Canby - one goes to the Presidio and one to Alcatraz. These changes are generally made every two years, and these latest orders were wholly unexpected and have caused con siderable comment. Awarded Highest RID PI The only Pure Cream of Tartar Powder.

The Secretary of the State Land Com mission has been instructed to notify the local tide-land appraisers of Mason county that in compliance with the de cision of the Supreme Court in Smith vs. ForreHt the board must proceed immedi ately to survey and plat natural oyster beds. This is a step toward the reser vation of such beds. The Land Com missioners by law must receive applica tions from purchasers of tide lands, un less the same are shown to be natural oyster beds, and plats filed by local tide land appraisers are only evidence to prove the status of all such lands. Local tide-land appraisers have thus far neg lected their duty, which, if persisted in, may result in the loss of tide lands which should come within the reservation. Oregon. The party that recently went to the Bohemia mines country to search for the bodies of the two men who perished in that vicinity a few months since has been unable to find them, and intend returning, It is now the opinion that the bodies will not be recovered before the last of June, as the snow still lies on the ground from ten to twenty-five feet in depth. The Linn County National Bank, through the receiver, II. M. Beall, has brought an injunction suit against the city of Albany to restrain the city gov ernment from paying the city warrants. It is alleged that the city has been pay ing the policemen cash tor city warrants of recent issue, and that the old war rants, some of which are held by the bank, have not been paid. It will prob ably be made a test case. During the past few days there has been a marked improvement in the run of salmon, and the average catch per boat is much above the average at this season of the year. This fact may be due to the comparatively long spell of warm weather which has prevailed for a month past, or possibly the long-expected four-year run has materialized. The fishermen and others interested in the canning business are not, however, particular as to the cause of the plenti ful supply, and are happy in the knowl edge that all the boats are doing well. Four of ilapgood's men the other day caught exactly 2,000 pounds of fish, or an average of about twenty each, and many other hauls equally large are re ported. Considerable excitement has been caused in the vicinity of Medford during the past few days by the result of a partial clean-up of the Miller placer mine, situ ated about five miles west of that city. This mine was recently purchased by Portland parties, and between $12,000 and $1,3,000 has been taken out as the result of the past winter's run. A par tial clean-up of the Sturgis mine, about twelve miles from this city, which was finished last week, produced $30,000 in yellow metal for its owners. These mines are considered two of the best placer mines in Southern Oregon, and the re sult of the clean-up of both has been watched with interest by mining men all over the State. The Miller mine com prises 240 acres, all of which is consid ered as good as that worked in the past, only two acres of which has been touched during the last eight years. The mine has been run with only one giant, and the present company is making arrange ments to put in two more giants, as there is plenty of water to run that number during the winter season.

It Paae Resolution A galn.t the Pre nt Currency Sy.tera Favor Free Coinage of Silver and Gold. Wabhikqtok, D. C The Bimetallic League has considered the report of the Committee on Resolutions. As finally adopted they declare the league is unal terably opposed to the further issue of interest-bearing bonds ; that before cast ing their votes for Congressmen the members of the league will require as surance of adherence to the free coinage of silver and gold at 16 to 1 and a pledge that, u a bill providing lor such coinage is passed by Congress and vetoed by the President, they will work and vote to pass it over the President's veto; that, if the election of President is thrown into the House, they will vote only for the person in favor of free coinage ; de nounce the present system of national banks as the monumental monopoly of the nineteenth century; recommend the enactment of a system of currency that win insure a per capita circulation ol fou to be made up by the free coinage of sil ver and gold at 16 to 1 and the issue of treasury notes ; assert that the discon tinuance of the issuance of silver money and the repletion of the treasury by bond issues is burdensome on the masses ; declare that it is the duty of the Secre tary ol the Treasury to coin the bullion now in the treasury and to pay interest on the public debt with silver, and de mand the issue of $450,00(1,000 of non interest notes of small denominations. Speech-making was the order of the day. Colonel Fiske of Denver advocated the building by the government of a rail road from Pittsburg to San Francisco. and later one to the South, as a means of assisting the people. The convention adjourned sine die. THK INDUSTRIALS. Careful Estimate of the Different Band of Coxeylte on the Way. Washington, D. C Representative Davis and H. E. Taubeneck have been making a careful estimate of the differ ent bands of Coxeyites on the way to Washington City, and claim that there are 5,000 men tramping or riding on boats and borrowed trains toward the capital. Mr. Davis does not believe in the wisdom or efficiency ol the move ment, and has written a magazine arti cle in which he points out that the move ment is a result ot currency contraction and summarized it as " organized want." If the eovernment should yield to Cox- ey's demands, other armies would march on the capital with other demands, and the result would be government by the multitude. The remedy for the present state of business he finds in the ballot, which he defines as recorded opinion. "No Coxeyites have come from Kansas," he said in a conversation on the subject, " because Kansas has expressed herself properly by her elections, and Nebraska, which is largely a Populist State, has contributed no more than seventy-five men." By imprisoning the leaders, he says, the authorities have made a swan out of a goose. The chief danger from the movement, he thinks, will develop next fall, when the weather becomes too cold for men to camp outdoors. Then he looks lor trouble. BATTLE WITH OUTLAWS.. Two Membera of tha Dalton Gang Taken by Surprise. El Reno, O. T. Two men supposed to be members of the Dalton gang, of train robbers passed through El Reno the other day, traveling eastward. The Sheriff telegraphed to the little town of Yukon to intercept and arrest them. A posse quickly organized, and when the train robbers made their appearance they were atacked. The defense was quite as hot as the attack, and a running tight ensued. One man, Mr. Farrish. was shot in the groin. The bullet passed entirely through him. He is not ex pected to live. An old man named Nel son was shot in the forehead, but not dangerously. A number of other per sona were wounded more or less severely during the skirmish, among them a mah named Snyder, who was shot in the face and will die. One of the robbers was shot and captured, but resisted to the last, and several of his captors bear cuts and bruises on the head, which he made with his six-shooter. The other robber escaped, but is supposed to have been hit two or three times, one bullet taking away a portion of his lip and one strik ing him in the head. The one captured is not known here. The Loa at William. port. William k port, Pa. The total losses here as estimated by conservative men are $3,000,000. This includes $1,500,000 on logs, $250,000 on sawed lumber and the balance on property throughout the city. Mayor Elliott has called a public meeting to take action looking to the care of the homeless. Probably fifty houses along the water front were ren dered uninhabitable, and the families are being caredfor by the more fortu nate. It is estimated that the homes of 10,000 people were invaded by the water and are in stu n a damp and unhealthiul condition as to make them undesirable. Those who lived above the flood line are not allowing the unfortunates to suffer. There iB an ample supply of provisions, and the city is not in want. WASHINGTON CITY. NEWS. The Senate Committee on Indian Af fairs has authorized a favorable report on Wolcott's bill for the opening to set tlement of the Uintah and Uncoinpah gre Indian reservations. The Secretary of the Interior has for warded to the War Department a re quest that troops in New Mexico be di rected to arrest Navajo Indians, as a re port to the department says they are off the reservation and committing depreda tions. The House Committee on Indian Af fairs has decided to grant the request of the Osage Indian delegation, which ap peared before it recently, to detach the (sage reservation from Oklahoma and attach it to the Indian Territory. An amendment to accomplish this will be proposed in the Indian appropriation bill. The National League for the Protec tion of American Industries is opposing items of the Indian appropriation bill for the support of parochial schools. amounting to nearly $400,000. Among them are the St. .Boniface, Banning. Cal., $12,500 ; Holy Family. Blackfoot. Mont.. . $12,500; St. Igna'ins, Jocko, Mont.. $45,- 000; Kate Drexel, Umatilla, Or., (6.000. Representative Doolittle of Washing ton has introduced a bill to appropriate $100,000 for ascertaining the subterra nean water supplies in the States of Idaho, Montana, Washington and Ore- v eon lying east of the Cascade Mountains and ascertaining the localities at which artesian water can profitably be dug. It is proposed to have the work done by the geological survey. Representative Hermann has secured an opinion from the Attorney-General which declares that the fresident can release any portion of a forest reserve. The question was raised in connection with the Bohemia mining district in the Cascade reserve. The land office has prepared a proclamation, to be submitted to the President, restoring several town ships in the mineral district. The Pres ident will sign the proclamation soon. Mr. Outhwaite's report on armor-plate investigation directs the Naval Commit tee to proceed immediately with the in vestigation. It is to cover ail the work done by the Carnegie Company since its government contracts began. One thou sand dollars is available for the use of the committee in prosecuting its work. Power is given to summon witnesses, administer oaths and secure the produc tion of books and papers. The House adopted the report. Enloe has introduced a bill to repeal the civil service act. - In the act creating the commission, it is stipulated there shall be three Commissioners at certain fixed salaries, and this act still remains in force. It was the intention of the House to make it ineffective, but the mere failure to appropriate money does not do so. The Commissioners conclud- ' ed to perform their duties and appe 1 to the Court of Claims lor the remunera tion fixed for their service by law. C. H. J. Taylor,, the colored Kansas man over wLose confirmation to be Re corder of Deeds for the District of Co lumbia there has been a spirited debate in the Senate, has been confirmed, the vote standing 34 to 15. There were no speeches made beyond a few remarks by air. mil to the ettect that the Demo cratic party platform on the subject of home rule should be observed. Ihe di vision of the vote was not over party lines, but lavlor received a larger per centage of Republican votes than at first seemed probable. Delegate Joseph of New Mexico has introduced a bill to authorize the explo ration and purchase of the mines within the boundaries of private land claims in all Western States. The bill, if enacted into law, would give any citizen of the United States qualified to make entries of public land a privilege of entering upon auy territory embraced within any land claim confirmed by the Court of Private Land Claims and in taking up a mineral claim. Before making such claim the locator must tender the owner of the land $2.50 per acre for it. Chairman Reilly of the House Com mittee on Pacific Railroads has intra- ' ducedabillto amend the act creating an auditor of railroad accounts. It pro poses an improved system of bookkeep ing between the government and the railroads which have received govern ment aid and are under contract to per form services for the government in part payment therefor. He proposes that the railroads shall transmit to the Commis sioner of Railroads duplicates of all bills for services rendered the United States, and accounting officers of the govern ment shall notify the Commissioners of their action on all the bills. In the Senate Senator Walsh, referring to a dispatch from St, Paul saying the locomotive engineers had adopted a res olution condemning him for introducing a bill to punish with twenty years' im prisonment the obstruction of trains carrying mails, said he had introduced no such bill. He had introduced a bill for the protection of the mail, but he had no intention of having it apply to engineers. He then introduced an amended bill, which provides that per sons robbing, attempting to rob or ma liciously obstructing trains shall be lia ble to a penalty of twenty years' im prisonment. Kyle has introduced a resolution in the Senate calling for non-intervention in Hawaiian affairs. It reads: "That it is the sense of the Senate that the United States shall not use force for the purpose of restoring to the throne the deposed Queen of the Sandwich Islands, or for the purpose of destroying the ex isting government ; that, the provisional government having been dulv recognized, the highest international interests re quire that it shall pursue its own line of policy; that intervention in the political affairs of these islands by other govern ments will be regained as an act un friendly to the government of the United States' .i V ' I.
