    Our Washington J
Washi.smtos, July 5, 1901.
Gen. Miles has an idea that it would
Iv wise to withdraw tho most of our
troops from Cuba now, instead of wait
ing uuiil tho Cuban government is es
tablished, and ho has olMially recom
mended to Secretary Root that 50 per
mit of the 5000 a meriean troops uow in
Cuba bo ordered home, and tho work
they ore doing be turned over to tho
Cubans. He thinks it an excellent op
portunity to test the capacity of the
Cubans to govern themselves ia a small
waythe preservation ot peace, protec
tion of property, etc. But it is under
stood that Secretary Root is opposed to
nny further reduction ol our troops on
the island until the Cubans have their
government established.
In a large room of the Smithsonian
Institute a permanent exhibition will
shortly be thrown open, under the name
of the "Children's Museum." The ceil
ings are hung with artificial wild vines,
among which are swung uiauy cages of
live singing birds, and the exhibits,
meteorites, insects (dead and alive),
models of diamonds, gold nuggets and
all the commoner minerals, small ani
mals, and many other things with which
children are BUtBciently interested in,
being specially arranged for the compre
hension of children. The idea of a mu
seum especially for the amusement, and
incidentally for the education of chil
dren, came to Prof. S. P. Langley a year
ortwoag:, and he has since been ar
ranging to put it into practical effect.
The method of exhibition itn't the only
unique feature of the new museum. It
has, so far as known, been the invaria
ble custom in every museum in the
world to label all exhibits with their
technical names, which are puwling to
the average well-informed adult, and
absolutely meaningless to a child. In
this museum everything is labeled with
its common name, and in addition,
where possible, a short lact relating
The additional claims against China,
put in by Germany ,and several other
powers, which were at first so puzzling
to this government, are now known to

the powers should be heartily ashamed,
iiy some error in figuring, China agreed
to pay a total indemnity which exceeded
the aggregate demand of all the powers
by $25,-130-000. As soon as tbat became
i. iiown, Germany put in a claim for
Vl'i,000,(KJ3 more and Japan for $5,000,
L'CO, and other powers annoui.ee their
intention to do tho same. This govern
ment proposed that the excesa be de-
ii. ieted from the total indemnity to be
paid by China, but from the manner
in which the proposal was received, it is
certain that it will nut be accepted, and
that the rnajr:tyof the powers are de
termined to squeeze the last dollar pos
sible out of China.
Secretary Hitchcock believes in adopt
inn good ideas wherever found. An in
vestigation having shown him that Ger
many had been successfully renewing
its forests, he submitted a plan for the
establishment of a bureau in the De
partment of the f rterior for the restora
tion of American forests by a similar
plan, and it was promptly approved by
the President and the other members of
the Cabinet, and the forefctry bureau
will soon be iu operation.
The receipts of the government for the
fiscal year ju-t closed exceeded its ex
penditures by $";,000,u00, which was
about $3,000,000 less than th surplus of
the pr'vi ;U8 fiscal year. There will be
no such surplus for the fiscal year be
ginning today, as the act of thi latl

million dollars.
