Olhcials of the pension bureau are un usually reticent regarding the announce ment that the bureau has unearthed at P.ullalo, N. Y., a wholesale scheme for deitauding the oliice.

Secretary Gresham has received a complaint from Chinee Minister Yang Yu that w ithin the past 10 days a China man living in a small town in Western North Carolina has been chased to the mountains for no other known reason except his nationality, and that he was believed to hate died from exposure. An investigation is being made of the tacts ol the case by the United States district attorney lor the western district oi North Caioliua. It the facts are as stated, reparation will probably have to be made bv the I'niteil States. Recent dispa'cl.e.- Ir.'iu North Carolina state that the Chinaman was believed to be iu.-aue and was wandering in the woods, and that his assailants had been ar rested. Attorney-General Gluey hasappointed Edward Walker, ol Chicago, a speival attorney to represent the United States in the case of the suit against the com missioner of Yew South Wales to the World's Fair. Among the exhibits of New South Wales were a lot of gold nuggets. These were attached by a traveling circus company which liad recently been in Australia and alleged that throiiiih the defective quarantine arrangements of that country the circus company hud lost many valuable horses. They sought to recover on the nuggets of the New South Wales exhibit. An examination of the law here discloses the fact that a foreign government can not be sued in a United States court without its consent. Even if this point were not conclusive, the government of New South Wales in the circumstances is a guest of the United Staies and en tilled to immunity, even if the allega tions, so far unsubstantiated, were true. The case will probably be dismissed if pressed. Commissioner of Pensions Loehren has issued the following iuiportantorder, simplifying the practice ol the burden in the adjudication of claims under the famous act of June 27, 1800: "Pension certilicates issued under the second sec tion of the act of June 27, 1800, will no longer specify particularly the disabili ties. In such certificates, where the maximum rating of $12 per month is allowed the certificate will state it is for inability to earn support by manual labor. Where less than the maximum rating is allowed the certificate will state it is for partial inability to earn a living by manual labor. Whenever, in the case of a pension granted under the said section at less than the maximum rating and a higher rating is subse quently sought, the application for such higher rating shall be considered and treated as a claim for an increase, and not as a claim for a new disability, and the increase, if allowed, will commence from the date of medical examination showing an increase of disabilit)." Between adjusting the accounts of the North American Commercial Companv with the treasury department, and the claims of the treasuiy department for $((,802. 000 against the North American Commercial Company, the natives of the seal islands in the Arctic ocean stand a good chance of starving this winter. The North American Commercial Company's accounts to the extent of $24,000 $4000 for coal supplies to the United States revenue cutters, and $20,000 for supplies furnished the natives are held'up. The commercial company is seriously con sidering the advisability of withholding further supplies to the natives unless the account already presented are passed. The whole matter, as previously stated, has been referred to the attorney-general for consideration, and it will probably find its way into the courts. In the meantime much solici tude is felt for the fate of the natives, who entirely depend upon the supplies furnished by the North American Com mercial Company for subsistance. FOREIGN FLASHES.

"Funny, isn't it. what daredevil acts railroad men will often do?" asked a little traveling man of a few friends as he dropped into one of the Grand Pacific rotunda chairs. "Yes, something like trying to run two trains on the same track or trying to see whether the rails or a man's leg is the hardest," suggested a fellow drum mer. "No, I mean in the ordinary course of business. The other day I started for Washington and I h:; I a premonition that the trip was n,t to be of the best, for on the way to the depot 1 purchased a pocket comb of a street vender, who gave me a quarter too much change. We got as far as Aubnrn Junction and it was awful dark, when the station agent informed us that there was a wreck between us and Defiance. O. Later he said there were two wrecks and that three men had been killed. The debris was piled so high upon the tracks that it would take the wreckers hours to clear them. 1 saw our conductor and engineer in close conversation. "Suddenly the conductor said. 'Bill, there is nothing left ns but to run around on the Wabash tracks to Defiance.' " 'But the Wabash has no operator here to give ns orders." answered the en gineer. " 'Oh. I'll cnt you off and we'll turn the engine around nt the nmudhimse table and make our way over the four teen miles of strange track As lung as your headlight shows up you can creep over the road, can't yon? "Tho knight of the throttle was a careful man. but he knew that the United States mail was being delayed and a couple of hundred passengers were angrily demanding that the trainmen do something to hurry them on. 'I'll go yon,' hi said, and the engine went down to the turntable to turn around. Upon coming back it was discovered that it would be impossible to couple her to the hind end of our train, as the sleeper draft irons were of a different pattern and higher than the coupler of the engine. Another pause for deliberation. "Finally the conductor advised the engineer to go back, turn around and couple on in the original position. 'We'll just cross over on the spur and back up the fourteen miles.' And we did. That stretch of fourteen miles on a night as dark as pitch, over an un known road, without a headlight and with 200 passengers unaware of the risk the trainmen were running to accommo date them and well. 1 tell you it was exciting. No orders, no nothing, as you might say. "1 stood on the hind end, which was then the fore end, with the conductor and four brakemen, as we slowly dragged our way through the darkness. The flagmen carried red lanterns and torpe does to run ahead and flag should a train be heard approaching, but it was dollars to butternuts that had a head light appeared around one of those un known curves no one of our train could have reached the approaching train in time to prevent her from crashing into our train. I've done a little railroading in my time and have taken a train over some risky places, but that fourteen miles of backing up without orders, without a headlight to aid our progress and on a strange track, is about the most squeamish ride 1 ever traveled. That shows you how many risks a rail road man will take to please the travel era." Chicago News. American and English Women. The average American woman, it has been repeatedly said, suffers from nervous exhaustion caused by the hurried, spas modic way in which she does her work.
