cuit Court of Oregon, the suit having
been brought by the government to re
cover about $500,000 worth of land
mi,ntnA tn the mmoany for the con
struction of certain wagon roads. As
the United States Supreme Oonrt has
recently rendered a decision adverse to
the government in two atmm i

to ask for its dismissal.
The Oregon and California Land Com
pany need to be assessed on 53,000 acres
ol land in Lane county. A new owner
ship book revealed 260,000 acres. The
company fought an assessment on that
basis. The Supreme Court decided
mostly in favor of the county of Lane.
A compromise has just been made on
136,000 acres. The principle has been
fully established that the railroad, or
land company, must pay taxes on the
land they are entitled to under the grant,
whether patented or not. As a result,
Lane eonnty will receive this year over
$10,000 from that scource, where several
years formerly a few hundred dollars
were paid annually.

The delegates to the recent Interna
tional Monetary Conference have re
signed. Among members of Congress
it is believed the President will send a
commission to Brussels to represent this
country when the conference reassem
bles, The Secretary of State is now en
deavoring to ascertain how many coun
tries will be represented at the reassem
bling oi the conference. There are some
officials who hold to the opinion that the
President will not send another delega
tion to Brussels, but will designate our
Minister to Belgium to attend the con
ference as the representative of the
United States.
Secretary Carlisle. It is stated on rood
authority, intends to give much of bis
time this summer to tbe consideration
of the tariff, with a view to so thorough
ly familiarising himself with the subject
as to be able to indicate in a general
way outlines for the formation of a tariff
bill by the next Democratic House,
Nearly every mail that reaches the
treasury department contains sugges
tions from statisticians and others as to
compilation of a tariff bill. Some
thirty or forty of these communications
have already been received, prominent
among mem Delng that Rom tbe new
York Reform Club. The general out
line ol the New York Reform Club's
tariff proposition corresponds clossly to
the proposition submitted in 1885 by
Edward Atkinson of Boston to President
Cleveland and Secretary Manning.
The ex-officeholder are almost deliri
ous with joy over Cleveland s modifioa
tionof the rule concerning reappoint
ments to office. It is believed that the
President will appoint "exes" where it
suits his pleasure, and apply the rule
where candidates are obnoxious. One
result of the announcement that the
"exes" would stand some chance is that
the Senators and Representatives are
besieged by a greater number of candi
dates than ever. When it was an
nounced that the "exes" were not in ii,
tn ratired reluctantly from the field'
and others, who had not held office,
of the department except thai oi most
Dressing nature. Tbe necessity for hav
ing the Ashland reservation is said to be
that the water supply of that town is
dependent upon having the timber reser
vation, as the denudation of the lands
where the water now comes from would
probably result in greatly impairing the
Water supply.
When the Senate ratified the treaty
for the cession to the United States of

therein a clause which provides for the
compensation for the land to be made
In time payments in place oi we re
auirement of tbe government to pay
cash, as contemplated in tbe sgreement
originally drawn upwiin we mutant,
This modification of the treaty was not
accepted by the Indians, but will he
considered by their legislative body, the
Cherokee Council, at a meeting to oe
held soon. The early opening of the
Strip will be entirely dependent upon
the action of the Council, for, should it
reject the modification of the treaty
made by the Senate, then it will be nec
essary lor the matter to be again brought
before uongress, wnicn wouio, oi course,
indefinitely delay the opening of the
lands to settlement,
