In addi tion the Secretary of War is authorized to contract for the completion of impor tant projects involving an ultimate ex penditure of about $28,000,000. K ;" No agreement has as yet been reached between the Washington Senators as to the course to be pursued on the Puyal lup reservation bill. Senator Allen is very anxious that the Senators shall stand together in support of his bill and in opposition to that reported by the Indian. Committee. . No time -has been set for consideration of the bill. .-. . The bill to exclude political influence from the appointment of the - 61,000 fourth-class postmasters in the country was agreed upon at a meeting of the House Committee on Civil Service Re form recently. The bill provides for a division of the country into postal dis tricts, and that where vacancies occur open competition shall be announced by the . Postomce inspectors,, who shall recommend the best' man to the Post master-General, after receiving the ap plications and examining the facts. Representative Hermann has been trying to secure a larger appropriation for the Siuslaw river, which in the river and harbor bill is for $10,000. No. amount of pleading by him in the House would induce it betore, and it was only in deference to his earnest work that the small appropriation was allowed. The committee held that the commerce did not warrant a larger appropriation. A bill was reported to the Senate the other day as a substitute for' a number of bills, making the act to settle -certain accounts between the United States and State of Mississippi apply to other States, so that Minnesota, Oregon, Kansas, Ne braska, JNevada, Uoiorado, south Dakota,., Washington, Montana, ldaho"and Wy oming shall receive 5 per cent, of the sales oi public land in their respective Indian bill, prepared by Senator Allen, has been given to a member of the In dian Committee to be placed before the Senate. Senator Allen says there is onlv one way to deal with the Indians, and that is by refusing to consult with them as to the disposition of their reser vations, and that so long as they are wards of tbegovernmentthegovernment should deal with, them, not as if the tribes were nations,iJ)ut as its proteges. Representative Wilsbn has been inter-, viewing various members of the Senate Indian Committee in relation to the Col' ville bill. There is a disposition on the part of the Senate Committee to amend the bill by refusing to Bend the treaty back to the Indians for ratification. Some of the members of the committee declare that the. treaty is all right as it stands, and it is poor policy on the part of this government to treat with the In dians upon subjects which are for their own interests and of which the govern ment and Congress are the beat judges. So it may be that the reservation will be opened by a simple act of Congress, ' Representative Wilson has offered an amendent to the sundry civil bill, in creasing tt e appropriation for the Gray's Harbor lighthouse irom the $15,000 previously appropriated to $75,000. This was ruled out of order as new legisla tion, although one of the members of the Appropriation Committee stated that the objection to the amendment was that it "raised the limit." Wilson' re torted he understood the language. Al though the amendment was defeated, Wilson had read and printed in the Record the memorials of other docu ments, showing , the logs bf life and property which had resulted because the lighthouse had not been established. The provision is covered in an omnibus bill,- which is now i pending in both Houses. . f-; i ; ' - , t i ; ; :. ( The Committee on Naval Affairs baa reported to the Senate with a favorable recommendation the bill providing that any naval officer now on the retired list, who has been retired after serving forty years or on attaining the age of 63 years, shall receive the rank and pay of Com modore, provided he had served -creditably the full term of four years as chief of a bureau in the Navy Department. The committee also reported favorably a bill amending the revised statutes so as to provide that any ordinary seaman, landsman, fireman, coalheaver or bay, who has been honorably discharged and and Bhall re-enlist for four yearB within three months, shall be entitled to pay for the three months, provided the men enlisting for continuous service must be effective and able-bodied men between the ages of 18 and 35 years at the time of enlistment, but the age of limitation ia not applicable to persons re-enlisting. The bill also provides that enlisted men of the navy or marine corps, who have Berved thirty years, may be' placed on the retired list and receive 75 per cent, of their pay and allowances. War serv ice is to be computed as double time in computing thirty years. The President is given discretion to permit enlisted men to the navy or marine corps to pur chase their discharge, and pensioners who are inmates of the soldiers' homes are allowed to have their pensions paid to their wives, children or parents. Aliens who have served in the army or navy by the bill are entitled to citizen shin without previous declaration. BEYOND THE ROCKIES. The International Association of Machinists in Session.
