Tendered His Resignation.

sentative Wilson 'of West Virginia,
Who Wilt Be Rewarded for Father
ing the Tariff Act.
Washington;; March 1. Postmaster
General Bissell set at rest all doubts as
to his purpose of remaining in the cabi
net by tendering his resignation to Pres
ident Cleveland this afternoon. His let
ter of resignation is said to have been
brief, and to have been couched in the
usual formal terms. !,The letter was writ
ten by the postmaster-general at the
close of office hours to-day, and was by
him personally handed to his chief a lit
tle after 5 o'clock. The action was not
taken hastily.. As far back as the early
autumn Mr. Bissell felt that his law
practice at Buffalo required his personal
attention, and at that time he notified
the president that sooner or later he
would be compelled to retire to private
life. Nothing further passed between
the two gentlemen with reference to the
matter until "ten days ago, when Mr.
-Bissell again assured the president that
he must soon resign his portfolio.
In a statement made by Mr. Bissell to
representatives of the press this even
ing, he said :
"I have placed my resignation in the
hands of the president. The reasons for
so doing are that my professional work
at home demands my attention, and 1
feel that I cannot longer remain away
from it; The business of the depart
ment is in good condition, and its trans
fer can be made without affecting the
public service. I deeply regret that I
am- thus compelled to sever relations
with the president and cabinet, which
have been most satisfactory and cordial.
Perhaps, without impropriety) I may
now say that all rumors of disagreement
between the, president and any of his
cabinet have been without foundation.
I doubt if there ever was a more har
monious cabinet than the present one,
and its members are a unit in support of
the president on every public question.'
"T . .... ... Unn n rl Kaa! vomiata of Ria
sell's retirement. 'The president said :
; "It is surely not necessary for me to
say that I shall iel ease Mr. Bissell with
the Utmost regret. All his associates in
the administration will feel they have
lost a colleague who, in all respects, was
a valuable factor in their executive la
bors, as well as a companion . to whom
they have become greatly attached. I
am not tatten y surprise, s nave
known for some time that it was inevi
table, because Mr. Bissell's reasons for
his action were of a personal nature,
and were inexorable. This first break
in the cabinet, which has been in the
midst of many "perplexing siuations en
tirely harmonious, all being actuated-by
loyal devotion to the public interest,
and pervaded in a marked degree by
the personal attachments which such
connections cannot fail to create, causes
ns all real sorrow. Much gratification
awaits Mr. Bissell in the appreciation of
his countrymen of his splendid and val-
. uaDie puonc service.: . . ,.
Though in the department and con
gressional circles the air is filled with
names of possible candidates to succeed
Mr. Bissell from states ranging from the
Atlantic to the Pacific and to Florida,
still the feeling was uppermost among
men in official life that the president
would reward in some way the utiring
devotion of Representative Wilson, of
West Virginia, to the administration
throughout this congress. .

General Brayman was born in 1813 in
Buffalo, N. Y. In 1835 he was admitted
to the bar. He then went to Louisville,
where he edited a paper and practiced
law. He alternated between the two
professions, obtaining eminence in both.
In 1842 he removed to Springfield, 111.,
and began the practice of law. While
in . Springfield he was a neighbor of
Lincoln and associated with him in
many cases. The intimacy then begun
continued until Lincoln's death. In
1861 General Brayman enlisted as major
in trie xwentv-nintn Illinois intantry,
commanding forces under General
Grant. He served with honor and re
ceived promotion rapidlv. He was mus-
tered out at the close of the war as
brevet-major-general. At the close of
the war he returned to Springfield. In
1873 he went to RiDon. Wis., where he
gained fresh legal honors. In 1876
President Grant BDDointed him trovernor
of Idaho. In 1880 he returned to Ripon
where he began anew the practice of
law. But failing health causing his re

"The acceptance by the government
of a bimetalist resolution in the house
of commons last night does not indicate
any change of ministerial opinion on
the currencv problem. Bimetalists. in
order to catch votes, have watered down
their motion so that it involved no dec
laration of principle and merely com
mitted its supporters to an approval of
sending a British representative to any
future international currency confer
ence. Sir William Vernon Uarcourt
agreed to that proposal, but at the same
time reiterated with the utmost empha
sis that Egland's prosperity is bound up
entirely with the maintenance of the
gold standard. The whole dead weight
of official opinion remains opposed to
mmetaiism, ana its adoption at tne
present time is wholly outside the range
of practical politics. Any representative
sent by the present government to the
currency conference will be a monomet
alist, and though Balfour is a bimetalist
no Tory government would attempt to
alter the currency policy of England, as
all other Tory financial authorities are
Indiana Incensed Over the Arrest of No

Pendleton, Or., March 1. The Uma

to Washington to interview the secre
tary of the interior concerning the dis
position of $200,000 of Indian money,
were arrested on Agent Harper's order
by Indian police for resisting the author
ity of United States officers. The other
Indians are enraged on account of the
arrest of their chiefs, and rumors are
current to-dav of trouble. A prominent
official said to-day he feared it would be
necessary to bring a company ot troops
from Walla Walla unless the Indians
quieted down. They have made threats
against Agent Harper, and are restless
under the agent's restraint on account
of Judge Bellinger's decision that In

National Law to Affect Settle
ment of Labor Troubles.
IT HAS PASSED THE , HOUSE
It Provides for a Board of Conciliation
to Settle the Differences Between
; Common Carriers and the Men Under
Washington, February 28. The house
met at 11 o'clock to-dav. . Henderson of
North Carolina, chairman of the com
mittee on . postoffices and postroads,
called up the conference report on the
postoffice appropriation bill, much to
the disappointment of the members who
were clamoring for unanimous consent
to consider bills.
The senate amendment providing that
hereafter mail clerks should live some
where along the route to which they are
assigned, but clerks heretofore appointed
Bhould not be required to change their
residence, was the only question in dis
pute between the two houses. The
amendment was designed to destroy the
effect of general order No. 379, issued by
the postmaster-general requring clerks
to live on the line of their routes. When
the order was issued some 1,300 clerks
lived off their lines. Since then 800
have changed their residence.,
Henderson had read a letter from the
postmaster-general protesting against
the senate amendment. But as it was
evident the amendment would occasion
some debate, Henderson withdrew the
conference report in order to give Catch
ings an opportunity to present the spe
cial order giving to-day until 3 o'clock
to the committee on labor and to-morrow
to the committee on public build
ings and grounds. The special order
was adopted without division, and Mc
Gann, of the labor commission, called
up the national arbitration bill, entitled
"a bill concerning carriers engaged in
the interstate commerce and their em
ployes." The purpose of the bill is to provide a
board of conciliation consisting of the
commissioner of labor and the chairman
of the interstate commerce commission, ,
whose duty it shall be when a contro
versey concerning wages, hours of labor
or conditions of employment arose be
tween a carrier under this act and the
employes of such carrier, seriously in
terrupting or threatening to interrupt
the business of said carrier, to put them
selves in communication with the parties
to such controversy and use their best
efforts, by mediation and conciliation,
to amicably settle the same, and, it such
efforts should be unsuccessful, to at once
endeavor to bring about an arbitration
of said controversy by submitting the
some to a board consisting of three per
sona, one to be chosen bv the emDloves.
one by the employer and these two se
lecting a third.
Erdman of Pennsylvania explained
the provisions of the bill, which he said
were originally drawn bv the attorney-
general, and being carefully considered
and perfected by the committee on la
bor, to-day had the support Of all the
chiefs of labor organizations involved
and of the commissioner of labor.
'Does the bill provide a compulsory
arbitration?" asked Simpson.
By no means," replied Erdman.
"The railroads favor it. The laboring
men have adopted it in all its phases,
and their representatives are here to
day urging it. The bill has behind it
the unanimous support ot our commit

bill," interrupted Dingley, "and the ar
bitrators render a decision, how is to be
'The decrees are to be enforced by the
courts," replied Erdman. v
"The courts can enforce a decree or
awards against a railroad company,"
suggested Dingley, "but how can it en
force it against employes f '
"The employes are to be treated as
far as possible as incorporated bodies,"
replied Erdman. -
McLeary of Minnesota called attention
to the section of the bill which provided
that all labor organizations claiming
rights under it should have in their ar
ticles of incorporation a clause providing
that members should forfeit their mem
berships if they failed to comply with
an arbitration award.
Fithian took occasion to make a bitter
speech denouncing the action of the
president in sending troops to Chicago
last vear to suppress the strike." He de
clared Mr. Cleveland's act was unconsti
tutional, and that when the full facts
were known, Governor Altgeld's posi
tion would be commended everywhere.
"I predict," said he, "the name of
Altgeld will live in history as one who
in the great crisis in the events of our
common country stood for lawful and
constitutional government by injunction,
government by force and government in
violation of the law, which is anarchy
of the worst and most violent kind."
Speeches favoring the bill were made
by Ikert, Henderson and Dunn.
On motion of Tawney an amendment
was adopted in the shape of a proviso to
the effect that no employe, should' be
punished for failure to comply with an
arbitration award, as by contempt of
court. Several other unimportant
amendments, together with three offered
by the committee, were agreed to with
out division, and the bill was passed.

THE AGRICULTURAL BILL.
Several Items Stricken Out by the Con
Washington, February 28. The con
ferees on the agricultural bill reached a
conclusion this afternoon, the senate
yielding much that it had added to the
bill.: Chief among the items so yielded
is that appropriating 40,000 for the ex
termination of the gypsy moth, which
was placed in the bill after a hard con
test by Mr. Lodge. The house agrees
to the senate amendment amending the
cattle exportation act, so as to extend
its provisions to all live cattle, the meat
of which, fresh, salted, canned, corned,
packed, cured or otherwise prepared, is
intended for exportation. An impor
tant 'provision of this law stipulates
that no clearance shall be given to any
vessel having on board any fresh, salt
ed, canned, corned or packed beef, be
ing the meat ot cattle killed alter the
passage of this act for exportation and
sale in a foreign country, from any port
in the United states, until the owner or
skipper shall obtain from an inspector
appointed under the provisions of this
act a certificate that said cattle were free
from disease, and that their meat is
sound and wholesome."
Another amendment agreed to by the
house authorizes the secretary ol agri
culture to make the necessary rules to
prevent the transportation Irom one
state or territory or district into any
other state or territory, or to any foreign
country, of the condemned carcasses of
cattle which have been inspected. The
house agreed to the action of the senate
in striking from the bill the authority
given the secretary to use part of the
funds set aside for-exports in the manu
facture of sugar for experiments, in
sugar cane, and rice production on re
claimed swamp lands in the San Joaquin
or Sacramento valley, Cal. The appro
priation ot Slo.UUU tor irrigation investi

bv the senate to $8,000, was restored.

the Southern Pacific Company of 1,000,
000 acres of land near Redding. The
railroad company desires this land pat

The British advanced up Brass river
February 13, captured several rebel
strongholds and destroyed a number of
of war canoes. Many of the natives
were killed and the main body of rebels
retreated into the interior. The follow
ing day the British advanced further in
land, and after sharp fighting captured
and burned the native town of JNimbi.
The natives, who lost heavily, fled
from Nimbi to Bassouia followed by the
British, who shelled the last named
town, but did not proceed further in
land. Sir Claude M. Macdonald, who
personally directed the operations, sent
an ultimatum to the rebels that unless
they surrendered and gave up the prison
ers captured at Akassa a month ago
further attack would be made on them.
A later dispatch from Admiral Bed

sisted of the gunboats Widgeon and
Thrush, two steamers belonging to the
Niger protectorate, and the flagship St.

five war canoes attacked the British
force at Sacrifice Island, but the fire of

the war canoes were sunk, after which
the rest retired. The following day the
intricate channels of the brass river
were buoyed and the creek reconnoi

THE NEW CUP DEFENDER.
Particulars of the Tacht Expected to
Sustain the Vigilant' Laurels.
Bristol, R. I., February 27. The
latest information from the Herreshoff
works is so positive in its character as
to leave no reasonable doubt as to the
type, general dimensions and construc
tion of the new cup defender. She is
an out and out keel boat, an improved
Colonia, and will be of Tobin bronze
construction Tobin bronze plates, on a
steel frame. She will be 89 feet on the
water line, about 24 feet beam and
something over 17 feet draft, or four feet
longer on the water line than the Colo
nia, about the same beam and with over
two feet more draft. Her lead keel will
be about 30 feet long on the top, 5 feet
6 inches in depth in the center and will
taper away gradually to a point both
forward and aft. It will be two feet
across at the top and slightly bulged at
the bottom. The Colonia was about 130
feet over all. The new boat will be con
siderably less, by reason of the shorten
ing of the forward overhang, and the
making of a stent whose contour above
the water is very much like that of the
Valkyrie II, the challenger of the cup of

the exposure aa a fraud of one of thnir
most brilliant mediums. Even the lead

unpleasant exposure, and one that is
likely to result in a damage suit and a
criminal suit is this: 'The medium's
name is Mrs. Nellie Ulrich. A Mrs.
Reaver, of Portsmouth, had a wayward
daughter, who is supposed to be in" this
city. She desired her to come home,
and Mrs. Ulrich agreed to locate the girl

money was spent, and the medium sent
letters telling of progress. An accidental -
