The results of the rifle, carbine and
revolver firing of the army for the target
year of 1892 received by the Adjutant
shows that Company G of the Seventh
Infantry, stationed at Pilot Bntte, Wyo.,
made the highest general figureof merit.
Active preparations are about to be
begun by Secretary Smith for the open
ing of the Cherokee Strip under the pro
vision of the Indian appropriations act
ratifying the agreement with the Ohero
keea. The preliminaries, however, will
consume considerable time,
A bint of Cleveland's policy of build
ing up a new party is given. Following
the selection of Judge Gresham for the
Cabinet, it is said, lie is going to appeal
to the sentimental Republicans by keep
ing Minister Lincoln at London and
Minister Fred Grant at Vienna.
Postmaster-General Bissell states that
whenever there is a contest for any post
office the person who held the office un
der President Cleveland's former admin
istration ie not to be considered. He
further states the full power of this rule
will be applied to fourth-class postoffices,
and that he, and not the President, is
responsible for it.
Secretary Carlisle has issued new reg

practically new, and are made to con

The Treasury Department continues to

Several offers had to be temporarily de

it made up the deficiency in weight the
government conld not accept It. In this
connection it is interesting to note that

Several people who have known how
long Cleveland is obliged to stand on
his feet during the many hours t.e is re
ceiving people, have wondered how it
was that he was able to keep up. He
comes down into the east room and
shakes hands with thousands of people,
standing on his feet for an hour or half
an hour, aa the case may be. In his
private office he feels the neceesitv of
arising to his feet when he receives visit
ors who are distinguished enough to be
admitted to private interview. It is
found, however, that the President has a
great scheme. Ilia desk ia low enough
to admit his sitting upon it in an ap
parent attitude of standing, and it is
there he sits, with his feet on the floor
and hie weight reeling on the desk, and
shakes hands and chats with the visitors
who are admitted. It has been re
marked by several persons that he does
not move around very much, but nobody
knows better than Mr. Cleveland him
self why he does not move around. He
is scheming an tnewtiiietosavenimseii,
and thia attitude be finds very comfort
It Is probable the clerks and some
other employes in the bureau ot engrav
ing and printing not directly employed
in the production of greenbacks and
other government obligations will have
to take certificates ot inueoteaness in
stead of cash for their salaries for the
remainder of the fiecal year. Tins is the
result of an error in the enrollment of
the deficiency bill, by which the word
" thooeand " was left off after the appro
priation intended to be $37,000 for defi
ciency in the pay of clerical and other
help at the bureau of engraving and
printing. It is presumed the employee
will not be dropped from the rolls tor the
remainder of this fiscal year, ae they are
necessary to the working of the bureau.
It is likely this will be considered a case
wherein the government officers are au
thorized to create an indebtedness under
the statute providing that " no govern
ment officer shall incur indebtedness for
the government except to save lile and
property." It may be held the employ
ment of these clerks is necessary to save
' property." The clerks will then be
given certificates stating they have ren
dered set rice to the value named, and
these they will probably be able to set
discounted for a consideration by local
money lenders. Several other errors in
enrollment have been discovered. In
the pension appropiatlon bill an appro
priation of $305,000 was intended for fees
of examining surgeons. In enrolling
the word "rive" was left out, so that
the item reads "three hundred thousand
dollars." A deficiency of $6,000 from
the proper amount will not be serious in
view of the smallnees of the amount and
of the fact that it was made on estimates
which in any event may be too large or
too small, and which ceo be remedied
next session before the money actually
appropriated ia exhausted. These are
but a lew of the errors committed in the
enrollment of appropriation bills, and
others are expected to come to light
