Millions of wild geese, ducks, sand hill cranes, curlew and snipe still remain at their fine feeding grounds on the Lower Colorado and on New river.

A California celery company has been organized in Westminster, Orange county, for the purpose of growing veg etables and establishing an extensive Eickle factory. Eighty acres of peat land as been rented for the company, and the land is naturally very moist and rich. ' The peat land blackberry crop promises to be a very heavy one. A thriving business is being done by smugglers who carry liquor from British Columbia into Alaska. The liquor is sold to the Indians in small quantities, and the white population experience no inconvenience in consuming what is left. The United States is thus defrauded of a vast amount of lawful revenue.

CONGRESSIONAL MATTERS. .ny.Increase in the River and Harbor Bill Need Not be Expected at ; This Session. The Presid&nt has approved the act in regard to the construction of abridge across the Columbia river between the Statespf Washington and Oregon. The House Committee on Postoffices and Post Roads ordered, favorably re ported thelbill consolidating third and fourth-class inail matter unuer the head of third" classand fixing the - rates of postage at 1 centfor each two ounces or fraction thereof. The majority and -minority reports'of the resolution proposing an investiga tion of the Pinkerton system will prob ably be soon made to th House.

Representative Ryan has asked the House Committee on Appropriation to grant a hearing to the committee frosn tha flranA Armr Prteta rf Kahraaha arhn are in opposition to the appropriation of fi $100,000 for the entertainment of the members of the Grand Army at the en campment at Washington. The hearing will be accorded. Several Senators have been notified by the Seriate Commerce Committee that they need not expect any increase in the river and harbor bill at this session. This is not the case so far as the Wash ington Senators are concerned. As they were invited to present the needs of their State to the committee, it is thought in the committee Washington has not been very well treated in the present bill. There will be no appointment made for the Supreme Court to fill the va cancy caused by the death ot Justice Bradley until December. The President wants to appoint Attorney-General Mil ler to the vacancy, and he evidently be lieves the appointment had better not be mad i before the election.

In replying the Presi dent explained just how far he could exercise hiB authority under the consti tution, stating very clearly the difference between the State and Federal authority in regard to crimes committed in any particular State. The President advised the delegation to collect the details of lynchings for the year and pre sent them to him and the public press, and said he would assist in creating pub lic sentment against the lawless methods of punishing colored men in the South. The House Labor Committee has agreed upon the bill relating to the lim itation ot hours tor the daily service of laborers and mechanics employed upon public works. It limits and restricts to eight hours in any one calendar day the service and employment of all laborers and mechanics employed by the govern ment of the United States, by the Dis trict of Columbia or by any contractor or subcontractor upon any public works of the United States or District of Co lumbia. Violations of the law are to be punished by a fi:ie or imprisonment. The vote on the bill was not unanimous, several members dissenting. In anticipation of -the passage by the House of the river and harbor bill Sen ator Squire is strenuously urging upon the Senate Committee on Commerce the necessity for speedy action upon his bill to appropriate $500,000 to begin the con struction of a canal (which will ulti mately cost $2,500,000) to connect the waters bf Lake Union and Lake Wash ington with Puget Sound. The commit tee will report favorably upon the bill, and at the instance of Senator Squire will incorporate it as an amendment to the river and harbor bill when that measure reaches the Senate. The prin cipal objection is said to come from Sen ator Dolph, who fears Congress cannot be induced to embark upon another pro ject of this magnitude without interfer ence with the scope of the Columbia river improvements, but Senator Squire feels he has secured a majority of the Committee on Commerce for the project. While it is an open secret that the President is endeavoring to secure an international conference on the silver question, the closest reticence regarding the whole subject is maintained at the White House and Treasury Department. S. Dana Horton, the confidential repre sentative of this government, spent a year or more among the financial offices of the governments of Great Britain, France, Prussia, Austria and Italy for the purpose of obtaining their views on the subject of bimetallic standard. He made elaborate private reports of his mission. He is now in Washington, and is a frequent visitor to the State and Treasury Departments. It is said the reports received from the different countries satisfied the President of the advisability of an international -conference. He has practically decided to take the initiative in the matter., and it is understood that he will soon send a spe cial message to Congress transmitting th correspondence on th subjeet. . .
