General Olneyhas received a telegram

Arapahoe Indians, but now constituting
a portion of the Oklahoma Territory, for
which $1,901,450 waB appropriated by
the Indian appropriation act of Mareh

Cleveland makes tne appropriation im

be paid to the accredited agents of the

Major Davis, chief of the war records
office, has just returned from Gettys
burg, where bv direction of the Secretary
of War he made an investigation of the
effect upon the battle lines and points of
interest by the construction of an electric
railroad. Major Davis found that the
damage to the battlelield had all been
done, as the work of. excavation and
filling was practically completed. About
four miles of the railroad are laid with
rails, and the remainder of the route is
ready for fine grading. The greatest
lnmrv has been milicted in one stretcn
of about two miles of route, which runs
in front of "Bloody Angle" and "Death
Valley" and skirtB "Round Top."
Major Davis' reports will be accom
panied oy a cnart anu saetcnes, ana win
be confined to a statement of the actual
condition of affairs on the battlefield.
It can scarcely go farther, in view of the
fact that the government has no prop

Owing to the small amount of gold
bullion deposited, about $100,000 per
month, and the heavy expense of coin
age at the United States mint at Carson
City, Nev., Secretary Carlisle has di
rected a suspension of coinage operations
at the mint from and after the 1st of
June. Gold and silver bullion will,
however, be received for parting anu
refining. Gold deposits will be paid for
in coin or fine bar, as preferred by the
depositor. Returns for silver deposits
will be made in unparted bars or in fine
bars, as uesirea. rurcnasea oi suver
bullion under the act of July 14, 1890,
will be continued as heretofore. The
suspension of coinage operations at this
mint will involve a reduction in force by
thirty-five employes. Reductions in the

States mints at Philadelphia and New
Orleans will probably follow. With a
suspension of coinage at Carson City
the coinage of silver dollars will be dis

. The Del Norte Record, published at
Crescent City, Cal., recently reprinted
the story of the famous Indian massacre
of settlers on the Klamath river from its
files of thirty-eight years ago. A sub
scriber to the Record living at Gold
Beach. Or,, read the blood-curdling
atory, but neglected to notice that it was
an event tliat occurred almost forty years
ago. Fancying that the massacre had
but just taken place, and that there was
danger of a general outbreak, he at once
aroused the neighborhood. Notices were
posted, a public meeting was called, and
a company of volunteers organized to
proceed at once to take the field against
the bloodthirsty Indians, Communica
tion with Crescent City was then had,
and the volunteers immediately .dis
banded. , ...
the non-comnetitive plan of the com
mission is growing. The American pro
test is at present confined to the
manufactures building, where 130 woolen
exhibitors, besides other large Eastern
manufacturers, obiect to the single ex
pert system, modeled somewhat after
the Centennial idea. The State Com
missioners will probably be the last to
file protests on behalf of the exhibitors
whom they represent. They want more
than one man to pass judgment on the
merits of their exhibits and have a
graded system of awards. It is not
likelv that the National Commission, in
the face of the Congressional act and the
work of the Committee on Awards, will
undertake to upset the plan adopted.
