CONGRESSIONAL MATTERS.
Another Attempt Made to Settle the
Vexed Puyallup Indian Res
ervation Question.
The House Committee on Public
Buildings and Grounds has acted favor
ably on the following public building
bills: Spokane, Wash., $150,000; Chey
enne, Wyo., $100,000.
Secretary Noble has rendered a dec
sion in the case of Wentill Grant against

to be very valuable. The case has been
before the department nine years.
The Washington Senators expect to
have a sub-port of entry established in
the Puget Sound collection district at
some point on the Columbia river with
in a short time. The Treasury Depart
ment is considering the matter.
The Washington delegation has been
asked by Henry Hewitt of Tacoma to se
cure in the, present river and harbor bill
a provision for a survey of the Snohom
ish river, with a view to its improve
ment. The Senate Committee on Com
merce may put this in the river and
harbor bill when it goes over from the
House.
The House Committee oa BailwavB
and Canals has ordered a favorable re
port on the bill authorizing the Secre
tary of War to cause a survey to be made
and an estimate furnished on the con
struction of a ship canal from the great
lakes to the navigable waters of the
Hudson river, of sufficient capacitv to
transport the tonnage of the lakes to the
sea. The bill appropriates $10,000 to de
fray the survey and estimates'.
The President has directed the re
moval of Charles M. Leavy, appraiser of
merchandise in San Francisco, for com
plicity in the recent frauds at that port
in connection with the undervaluation
of silk goods imported by Neuberger,
Keis s Uo. xne action is the result of
the investigation by Solicitor Hepburn
and Special Agent Ingle. The case of
Mr. Leavv is in the hands of the United
States Attorney in San Francisco.
The Port Townsend Chamber of Com
merce still keeps up its record in the
way of petitions and memorials. Tb,e
latest was presented by Senator AuW
the other day, asking that all matters
arising in Alaska which come under the
jurisdiction of the United States Court
may be reterred hereafter to the Wash
ington courts instead of Oregon, as at
present. If there has been anything
that the Port Townsend Chamber of
Commerce has not petitioned for, it iB
something it has not heard of.
The Superintendent of Census has is
sued the following statistics of cereal
production in Oregon and Washington
for the census year ended May 31, 1890 :
Oregon Wheat', 563,270 acres, 9,298,224
bushels; oats, 218,736 acres. 5,948,594
bushels; barley. 37,8)3 acres, 876,063
bushels. Washington Wheat 372,658
acres, 6,345,426 bushels; oats, 65,08
acres, 2 273,182 bushels! barley, 61,661
acres, 1,269,140 bushels. In addition to
the foregoing were corn, rye and buck
wheat, aggregating 19,196 acres in Ore
gon and 11,373 acres in Washington. In
Oregon the total area in' cereals has in
creased since 1879 from 632,871 acres to
829,005 acres, not including at least 27,
000 acres, mainly In Wasco and Gilliam
counties, oiuwhich the crops were either
destroyed by drouth or cut for forage.
In Washington the total area devoted to
cereals aggregated 500,671 acres, as com
pared with 136,937 acres at tenth census.
The addition to the acreage in wheat
represented 80.03 per cent, of the total
increased acreage.
Contrary to general expectation, the
Geary Chinese bill went thiough the
House under a suspension of the rules.
Senator Dolph was asked if he would
give any expression upon the subject,
and declined to do so. He said the bill
as amended would now come to the Sen
ate, and would probably go to the Com
mittee on Foreign Relations. Geary
says that the bill must go through the
Senate, or every man who lives in a
State where labor is employed will lose
the support of the laboring men. The
bill is certainly severe in its methods,
and is believed by some to be unconsti
tutional and in viola' ion of all treaty
rights. This matter will be taken into
consideration by the Committee on For
eign Affairs, and perhaps a compromise
measure may be reached which will keep
out the great bulk of Chinese and yet
work no violation of international law.
The Senate will no doubt be more con
servative than the House in considera
tion of this matter, for as a matter of
fact the great body of the House never
had an opportunity either to discuss or j
understand this Chinese bill.
Another attempt is being made to set
tle the vexed Puyallup Indian reserva
tion question. Senator Dawes has in
troduced a bill providing an appropria
tion of $25,000 to pay the expenses of a
commission, which shall determine the
rights of individual Indians who have
taken allotments and also secure a list
of unallotted lands within the reserva
tion. This commission is to make a plat
ef all lands, appraise the value of each
tract and make a report to the Secretary
of the Interior. If the report is ap
proved, then the commission is to be
authorized to sell the lands at auction
owned by the Indians, and also the lands
which have not been allotted adjacent
to the city of Tacoma are to be laid out
into lots and sold, the money to be de
posited in the United States Treasury
and draw interest for the Indians at the
rate of 5 per annum. This would prob
ably dispose of the Indians' allotted
lands on the reservation, but there is yet
a question to be considered. This is re
garding the contract made by Indians
who hold lands in severalty with other
persons, and who claim that they have
a distinct right on the lands, and that
their contracts made with the Indians
shall be first considered. It is evident
that in anything done with the Puyallup
lands considerable litigation will follow.

HE SEEMS TO MAKE IT PAY.
The "Idealst". Is What a Pioneer in a
"New Calling;" Style. Himself. ...
The day of the eccentric man has
been long delayed, but it seems to have
overtaken us at last. If the signs of
events count, the "crank," the man
with ideas, the odd chap are to get a
little nearer to life's figurative clover
field hereafter than ' they are at pres
ent ::. -.; ' ' .VV1
In a neatly furnished room on the
first floor of a quiet hotel up town a
nervous, diffident young man, half
buried in papers and books, was found,
who makes a very good salary by the
rather odd occupation of originating
ideas. He does nothing else, nor has
he for more than a year, and lias been
during that time rather well compen
sated for the ideas he has sold in fact
he has no notion of ever abandoning
the work on account of its money side. ,
He is new to New York, having been a
Chicagoan until quite recently. He is
a German-Yankee, with a rery pro
nounced nervous temperament and of
queer history, habits and notions. He
was, as an evidence of his originality,
married at eighteen to a young lady
who was almost an utter stranger,
to him, under quite romantic circum
stances. When seen, the "Ideast" was
anticipating very eagerly the arrival in
New York of his little family wife and
three -year-old girl, of either of whom
he said he would be glad to boast,
were it not a commonplace thing to do. '
"I plan to remain in New York at
least a year," he explained. "I have
contracted to devote my whole time for
that period to thinking for and making
suggestions to one cf your greatest
business houses. It is a mark of cour-
acrn in a mnnntrar n rvnilu1a fVA
8rm can afford to pay $ 2,'600 a year for
the privilege of having an odd -sort of
felloW on the alert constantly to see
uncommonplace phases of the busines-
to scheme and plan new features of it,
to look at Vfrorn odd standpoints and
to think of a the attitude of an idea
maker. ; Yet that is just what a shrewd
business man faas concluded for his
firm in my case, and it emphasizes the
trend of all our civilization toward the
'this-one-thing-I-do' nien."
"Is this calling of the 'Ideaist' very
numerously represented as yet in New
York?"
"I think not indeed. thererre few
who depend entirely upon theirv-idea;?-
for a living. We have a number-
bright men, artists, designers, advei
ing solicitors, writers, etc., who make
very good thing of selling their ideas,
as la side issue, to whomsoeverJjgyA
seem to nt." - ..
"What pay, for example, can these
people command for a good idea?"
"If it is an idea for advertising some
thing in an original way the pay will
vary from one dollar to $100 for a single
idea. A bright man may think of twenty
excellent ideas in a day, and then fail to
strike one good one in twenty days, it
being largely a matter of mood. Some "
call it inspiration, but it is hard to com
mercialize 'inspiration,' or 'mood,'
either, for that matter. . At times when
I have particularly wished to catch a
good idea at an opportune time, or
when the pursestrings have begun to
desuetudize, and need to again rehearse
their parts in the social swish, the mood
has utterly failed me, and all the fret
ting and worrying I am so magnificent
ly capable of have failed to have their
effect upon this elusive mood quality."
"What would you advise a man to'
do with an idea if he gets one a man
not versed in marketing such things to
advantage?"
"If a boy or girl or man or woman
ever catches an idea that seems good
for some special thing I would advise
him or her to develop it think of a
special fitness it may have to some
business, and then briefly write of it to ,
such business house, usually leaving :
the matter of compensation to the cus
tomer. In this manner a sale will
eventually be sure, if the idea is really
novel and good, and instead of airing
the scheme for guying friends and then
forgetting all about it and earning the
reputation of a dreamer or crank, the
idea maker can earn a good purse of
side money." New York World.

yourself known, don't go to the
trouble of doing good work. Just
buy a trumpet and blow a blast to
shake the stars. The time has gone
by for quiet, unpretentious adherence
to duty to make any show. ' The
louder you are, the more, blatant and
vociferous, the sooner you attain the
goal of achievement, if it is notoriety
you are after. But if you still have a
hunger in your soul for the approval of
your own conscience and the com-.
mendatien of that high and holy one
who some future day shall bid you enter-
into the reward laid by for the faithful,
and the pure, and the tender hearted,
just go on in the quiet way you have
chosen and let your trumpet lie un
heeded on the shelf. Chicago Herald.
