That There Should Be Another, Opportunity to Vote for the Bill Railroads Willing; to Pay Principal Without Interest. Washington, February 14. The house committee on Pacific railroads decided to-day to report the- Reilly Pacific rail road bill back to the house for further consideration. 'The committee decided that the house should have another op portunity to vote for the bill in view of the fact that the resolution recommitting the bill to the committee stated that sufficient time had not been allowed for Its consideration. In reporting the bill the committee will also submit without . recommendation the proposition made by the railroads to pay the principal of the debt without interest. This action is to enable the house to vote upon the proposition if it so desires. A motion to report a foreclosure bill received only one vote in, committee. The proposition for payment of the prin cipal of the debt as submitted by the re organization committee, and which will be offered as atl additional section of the bill, is as follows: " Section 19. If the said Union Pa cific Railway Company, or the commit' tee formed for the reorganization of said company, or the appointees of said com mittee, or the Central Pacific Railroad Company or any trustees approved by it within twlv months' from the day of the passage of this act shall pay or pro cure to be paid ;to the secretary of the treasury an amount in cash equal to the par or face value of the subsidy bonds of the United States, issued to aid in the construction of the .railroad of such com pany? the secretary of. the treasury shall accept said sum and cover the same into the treasury, and thereupon all claims of the United States against such com pany together ,w,rth all liens securing the same shall be assigned (but without recourse to the United States in any : event), by instrument executed by the J secretary of the treasury in its behalf of said company, or said committee, or its appointees or said trustees purchasing the same, and all money and securities in the sinking fund of said company in the treasury of the United States shall be thereupon paid and delivered over to the said m committee, company v . or trustee." '". " , DEBS JURY DISCHARGED. Juror Coe's Illness that Caufce of a MIs . j: trial. -Jj- Chicago, February 14.4-Judge Gross cup has postponed the Debs $rial-until the first Monday in May.y He J dis charged the jury to4day on account of the serious illness , of Juror Coe. A dramatic Bcene folfowld the decision of Judge Grosscup discharging the jury. The jurymen left their seats and while some stopped to shake Judge Grosscup's hand the majority of them hurried to where the prisoners were seated and surrounded Debs.' They slapped him on the back, shook hands, with him and. again and again expressed profound ad miration for his bearing during the trial. Juror Baird said to him: : . " Debs, when this trial opened I was in favor of giving you a five-year; sen tence, but now I am anxious to see you free." ' - .- --. Similar expressions were heard from the other jurors, and it was evident that the case would have resulted in an ac quittal had it not ended in a mistrial. The attorneys for the defense were crest fallen at the" sudden ending of the case. All expressed the opinion that victory was in sight for the defendants when Juror Coe's illness stopped the proceed ings. The defendants were equally sor ry that the (rial: could not proceed. Debs expressed himself as confident that he and his associates would have been acquitted. The continuance of the case leaves the American Railway Union directors free temporarily, but under two bail bonds each. THE NATION'S WARDS. Annual Report of the Board of Indian . Commissioners. ' Washington, February 14. The board of Indian commissioners to-day submit ted its twenty-ninth annual report to the secretary of the interior. , The re port states that the awarding of con tracts for Indian supplies has been fair and impartial, and the goods delivered fully . up to the samples. There have been but few complaints from the agen cies and schools in this regard. The sweeping charges of fraud in the Indian service, which are sometimes published, are founded, it says, upon traditions that have come down from iormer times. The report reviews the situation in the Indian Territory ; refers to the graphic picture drawn by Senator Dawes of the state of affairs among the five civilized tribes, and urges an earnest effort to settle the important and vexing ques tion which has kept the attention of congress for many years. The report recommends mat a government should be devised which will give to all the people, without distinction of race, the usual protection of the law, and make all citizens of the United States. Under wise legislation, it says, the Indian Ter ritory will soon become prosperous and be admitted a strong and wealthy state into the American union. The report strongly recommends the education ot tne Indian children at pub lic schools as a step forward toward the transference of the whole work; of In dian education to the states and making unnecessary specino Indian schools. In conclusion - the report says that some of the Indian agencies can soon be dispensed with, but it will still be years before all can be cleared, and tne pres ent talk of abolishing them is idle con versation. The Indians now need the advice and help of some trusted friend. These recommendations are made: A modification of the laws relating to the leasing and sale of allotted lands ; the placing of the entire Indian service under the regulations of the civil service law, and an increase of appropriations for education. AFFAIRS ON THE ISTHMUS. Serious Nature of the Revolution In Colombia. New York, February 14.-A late ar rival from the iBthmus of Panama brings information' of the seriousness of the revolution now in progress in the Republic of Colombia. BattleB have been fought at several places in the in terior, which the government reports as disastrous to the revolutionists, but the agents of the rebels assert this is not true. The activity of the government in seizing the Bteamer Premier and for warding arms and ammunition to the southern departments show the anxiety felt. No reports unfavorable to the government are allowed to be printed. Local mails and personal letters are subjected to inspection, and letters an tagonistic to the government would re sult in the immediate arrest of the sender. All passenger shipB arriving at Colon are closely examined for suspect ed sympathizers and munitions of war, and the cable lines are also under sur reillance. Affairs on the Isthmus are very dull, and seemingly quiet, but an outbreak is imminent at any time, as the laborers employed by the Panama railroad and canal companies are on the verge of a strike owing to the low wages and in creased cost of living since January 1, when an import duty of 10 per cent on all invoices went into effect, and in the event of a strike of the employes there is little doubt but the sympathizers with the revolution would take advantage of thel situation to secure arms and ammu nition from the government. No one is allowed on the streets of Panama and Colon without a pass after 10 o'clock p. and the police are ready to disperse any crowd even in the daytime. The presence of the United States cruiser Atlanta at Colon, and the Nymphe and Satellite, two English men-of-war, at Panama, has a salutary effect upon the dissatisfied .employes of the Panama Railroad Company. . DEPOSITS ALREADY MADE. No Interest on Bonds In Payment Until '.' After the Gold Is Deposited. Washington, February 13. Secretary Carlisle has informed the New York yndicate, with which the 3,500,000 ounces of gold were contracted for, that the interest on bonds given in payment would not be commenced until after the deposit of the gold, and in consequence a large amount of gold was to-day de livered at the assay office. - The superin tendent of the assay office has been in structed to receive the gold by weight, and to pay in certificates ' of' deposit, which : will be received for the bonds when they are ready for delivery. None of the gold will be counted, but will be weighed in as bullion, and if standard at the rate of $18.60465 per ounce, or as 43 ounces of etandard gold is exactly equal to $800, the weight may be multi plied by SOU and divided by 43 to de termine the value in dollars. Under these instructions abraised coin will be received the same as new, and if foreign coin is offered, it will be melted and its value determined by assay. . The Canal Project Favored. v Seattle, February, 14. The commit tee of St. Louis capitalists, which came here to examine and report on the pro posed harbor improvements and Lake Washington canal, left for Portland to day, and on reaching St. Louis will make a favorable report on the improve ments to the Mississippi Valley Trust Company, which has contracted to take the bonds. A START IS DESIRED The State Legislatures Should Take the Initiative. THEN CONGRESS WILL ACT Fish Commissioner Maedonald Regrets the Possible Refuial of the Oregon . and Washington Legislatures to Pro- tect Salmon Fisheries. Washington, February : 15..- Fish Commissioner Maedonald looks with re gret upon the possible refusal of , the Oregon and Washington legislatures to do anything looking to the protection of salmon fisheries, which would give the general government an opportunity to do something toward enlarging the pro- duct ot the wondertui Columbia river fish, r Congress is ready to do something as soon as the fish commission will rec ommend, and Mr. Maedonald is anxious to make his recommendation as soon as he-can, if there is a prospect of making a feasible expenditure of money.- The fish commissioners cannot think that either legislature will be so short-sighted as to neglect to take the proper pre caution for salmon preservation, when it is apparent if present methods are continued it is only a short time before the salmon . Buppfy will be practically exhausted. It will result in ultimate damage to the whole state, and especial ly to the very men who are now said to be standing in the way of legislation by the states most vitally interested. As to getting an appropriation for the propagation of salmon, there is no ques tion as soon as the states comply with the regulations insisted upon by the fish commission. Many of the senators and representatives have had an opportun ity to test the quality of Columbia salmon, and they will do anything to help preserve it. Senators Dolph and Mitchell and Representative Hermann have on more than one occasion fed the hungry congressmen with - this tooth some fish, while Hon. J. B. Montgomery has often done the same. - The Colum bia river salmon is well-known in Wash ington, and everybody would like to have the fish preserved by such meas ures as are necessary. It may now be too late to get an appropriation at this session. . if the state legislature had acted by this time it could have been procured, but there will not be the slightest difficulty in the next congress if the legislatures do their duty. - RIOTS IN NEW ORLEANS.' - Dynamite Found Concealed in a Bale of Cotton. ; . - v : New Orleans, February b. The United States marshals,; who. are- pro tecting the negro laborers engaged in loading the Bteamer Floridian, of the West Indian and Pacific Steamship line, at Southport, the southern terminus of the Mississippi .Valley railroad, , just above the limits' of New Orleans, saw a suspicious man. yesterday morning among the cotton, bales on the 'wharf. He was watched and detected conceal ing something in a bale of cotton. ' He was arrested at once and tne cotton ex amined. It was found that he had put enough -dynamite in the cotton to blow the l loridan to pieces. The federal au thorities refuse to give the name of the man, but there seems" to be no reason-to: doubt that the attempted crime was due to the bitter feeling growing out of the labor troubles here. The West Indian '& Pacific Steamship Company was one of the first lines to employ negro labor in loading as against whites. The white laborers were indig nant and struck. .- The wharves of the company were set on fire a' few days afterward and burned with' all the freight, the total loss being $300,000. At southport, wnere the man was ar rested yesterday, there' has been no trouble for weeks, but the negro steve dore in charge of the' loading of vessels was shot several weeks ago by. white men. The race labor troubles on the river front have prevailed since October. The (Juban Steamship uom pan y, which has two vessels loading here with cotton won a signal victory yesterday in the United States court. The company findr ing the loading of its vessels prevented or interrupted by the strike of the screw men and other labor men on the river; front,- attempted - to use its crew for loading. The laborers have protested against this, and under an act of the legislature of 1880, which prohibits ves sels using their crews to load or dis charge cargoes, the mayor and chief of police were appealed to and stopped all work. The company appealed to tne federal courtB yesterday-, for an injunc tion. Judge .Fariange's decision was strongly in its favdr. "He declares' the law passed by the legislature, which has been enforced lor niteen years without ever being challenged before, unconsti tutional, prohibited the mayor and po lice - Irom interfering with the crew working, and announced that the com nanv had a good suit for. damages against the authorities for the interrup tion to which it had already been sub jected. . --. - General Schofield Is Grateful.; ' . Washington,' February .15. In a let ter to Senator Hunton, of Virginia, Lieutenant-General Schofield thanks him for his urging of the confirmation of the general's nomination, and says the' senator's public announcement of the fact that he had gained the friend ship of the "big-hearted" people of Vir ginia is an honor more dear to him than any military rank. . s INCOME TAX RETURNS. Time Extended and Additions Made by the Senate Committee. Washington, February 14. The sen ate finance committee to-day authorized a favorable report on the house concur rent resolution extending the time for making returns under the income tax law from March 1 to April 15 with the following additions : ue it mrtner resolved, That in com puting incomes under said . act, the amounts necessarily paid for fire insur ance premiums and for ordinary repairs upon any real estate shall be deducted from the rents accrued or received from suca real estate. It is also resolved. That in computing incomes under this act. the amounts re ceived as dividends upon the stock -of any corporation, company or association shall not be included. In such cases dividends are liable to a tax of 2 per cent in the net profits of said corpora tion, company or association, although such tax may not have been actually paid by such corporation, etc., at the time of making returns by the person. corporation or association receiving such dividends. ; - It is further resolved that no taxpayer shall be required in his or her annual return under said act to answer any in terrogatories unless specifically provided lor in said act. The resolution as amended was after ward reported to the senate; ONE OF THE CONDEMNED. History of William T. Seward, Now Under Sentence In Hawaii. New Yobk, February 13. Colonel William T. Seward, condemned to death at .Hawaii, formerly lived at Orient, L. He was very prominent on Eastern Long Island. It first became known yesterday that the unfortunate Colonel Seward at Hawaii is the William T. Se ward, who for many years had charge of the extensive Long Beach fish works. Colonel Seward came to. Orient many years ago from Hartford, Conn., to be employed at the fish works as chemist. Upon the death of ex-Senator Lewis A. Edwards Mr. Seward occupied his hand some residence, and bad charge of the factories. The residence is now owned by Caleb A. Dyer, and is one of the finest in Eastern Long Island. The fish works became involved about ten years ago and Mr. Seward left his wife and two children in' Orient, went to Port Royal, 8. C, and engaged in work , in phosphate works. - That was not suc cessful, .Frony thence he traveled ex tensively and landed in San Francisco, irom. where he sailed for the Sandwich Islands. After leaving Orient Mr. Se ward met with little success. His fam ily became despondent. His place was sold and his family moved to Guilford; Conn., where they now reside. , Mr, Se ward is said to be about 55 years of age. He was a member of the Masonic lodge at Greenport: was a personal friend of Senator Hawley of Connecticut and served in the Union army. : A letter was received yesterday by the secretary or . tne ureenport Masonic lodge irom Mrs. Seward asking that the lodge take some steps in behalf of her unfortunate husband. This interested many of his friends on Eastern .Long Island, and a letter has been sent to James W. Covert and David B. Hill urging them to inter est themselves in the matter. INDIAN WAR CLAIMS.

Sales'' pri, February 13, -A copy, of the following letter was mailed from the executive department to-day to each of OregoU's-'delegates in congress.

' ' - Tacoma, February 14,- Judge Hanford in the federal circuit court to-day or dered the Northern' Pacific receivers to pay bills aggregating $900, presented by store-keepers, :, livery-men and others, between Tacoma, Centralia and Spo kane, for supplies, lodging, board, etc., furnished the deputy marshals during last summer's , strike. These were ex penses which-could not be charged to the deputies. for. lack of specific informa tion. The court held that it was fair that the company should bear this ex pense, as the government has paid out $60,000 for deputies employed in this state during the commonweal troubles and strike. Some of the bills were re duced and a few disallowed. . ,- WILL BE NO PEACE Japanese Preparing to March on to Peking. CHINESE ENVOYS RECALLED Japanese Will Not Discuss Terms Until They Are Inside of the City of Pe king, and There Is No Doubt But They Will Reach There. New York, February 13. Harold Frederick has cabled from London to the Times the following: : : ;.; ' " I have from an absolutely informed quarter an interesting view of the state of affairs in the far East. Corea's au tonomy is assurred, Manchuria is vir tually in Japanese hands, and they are already building additional fortifications at Port Arthur to turn that place into Japanese Gibraltar. Now that Wei Hai Wei is captured and the Chinese fleet destroyed nothing remains except to ad vance upon Peking. This will certainly be done by way of Shan Hai Kwan. It is curious nothing has yet been said about the Chinese works and forces there, where the next great engagement must oe. : , : . 'AH talk of peace now is nonsense.

London, February 13. A Shanghai dispatch says the Chinese official ac count of the fighting at Wei Hai Wei denies the report that the warships Ting men and unen xuen were sunk, and also asserts that Liu Kung Tao fort has not been taken. The ships, the account says, were merely damaged, the same report says there are no Japanese ex cept a few scouts near Che Foo. A Yokohama dispatch to London savs that during the fight resulting in the :apture of the fort on Lin Kung Tao Island in .the harbor of Wei Hai Wei, the magazine of Listao fort was blown .

Protectorate Said to Have Been De- clared Over Hawaii. San Francisco, February 12. The Examiner prints a story to-day from its correspondent at Honolulu that Admiral Beardslee has taken possession of Pearl Harbor and declared a protectorate over the Hawaiian Islands. This hews came to Victoria by the steamer Warrimoo. , NOT BELIEVED IN WASHINGTON. Washington, February 12. The re port that Admiral Beardslee has seized earl Harbor and declared a protector ate over the Hawaiian Islands is not be lieved here. Neither the State nor Navy departments have any intimation of any such action. It is stated by both that Admiral Beardslee's instructions have already been made public, and there is nothing in them to justify such action oirhis part.

Holmes, private secretary of Damon, Hawaiian finance minister, who is en route to England on a vacation. He says there has been no change in the situation since the arrival of the last steamer, but he believed the effectual manner in which the revolution was quelled will prevent any further upris ing. The natives were much disgusted at the fiasco and despised Wilcox tor his tfknra 1 r an frnn ur Tn V i a Anininn capital punishment will not be inflicted upon the conspirators, not because the government lacks courage, but because the country is free from grave offenses. and the infliction of the severest penalty of the law would be revolting to the people.

Decision Against the Bear Valley Irri gation Company. Los Angeles, Cal., February 13. Judge Ross of the United States circuit court to-day handed down a lengthy opinion in the case of James Gilbert Fos ter vs. the Bear Valley Irrigation Com pany, in which he decided in favor of the plaintiff, who represented about 4,000 persons in and about Redlands, Cal., who were holders of class "A" cer tificates of the Bear Valley Land & Wa ter Company, of whom the defendant is successor in interest. The Bear Valley Land & Water Company went into in solvency, and a receiver has been ap pointed. Prior to this that company levied $2 per year additional to regular charges upon holders of class "A" cer tificates. The company did this because the corporation had by tapping addi tional Bources of supply increased the flow in the Redlands canal, from which the certificate-holders took water. . The latter, however, objected to this addi tional charge, and the opinion decides that the receiver shall recall the notices sent to class "A" subscribers demand ing that they pay this additional charge. The court bases the decision on the legal principle estoppel. THE SMALLPOX SERUM. Experiments Making at the Quarantine '"':." Station in St. Louis. St. Louis, February 12. Since the appearance of smallpox two weeks ago experiments have been made Becretly at quarantine to manufacture an effective smallpox serum which will obtain the same results in its branch that antitox ine has for diphtheria. The experi ments are under the direction of Health Commissioner Homan and Dr. A. N. Ravolt of the Washington University. These men have been materially aided in their work by a series of tests made last December at the quarantine station at New York by Dr. Elliott. On the basis of these experiments Dr. Ravolt two weeks ago vacinated a- strong, healthy heifer with bacilli taken from a smallpox patient. After the animal had sufficiently recovered he took some of its blood and extracted from it the serum. The first actual tests were made, only three or four days ago so that the re- ults, whether favorable or not, cannot be learned. , , . . THE ARMY AND NAVY.
