RESULT OF RESURVEY
TRAPS WILL BE MOVED EAST AND
OUTH OF SAND ISLAND.
Engineer Hegardt, It Is Reported, Has
Ordered That a Number of Them Be
1 aken Out, but Just How Many Is
Mot Definitely Known.
Astoria, Or., April 23. While the
agitation over the fishtrap question and
the right of parties to drive obstruc
tions along the southwest side of Sand
island has not yet been settled, it has
had the effect of bringing about a re
survey of the harbor lines, whioh will
result in the removal of a number of
traps east and south of a line extended
from the southeast end of Sand island
to Scarborough head. It is not known
just how many will be removed, but it
is reported from Fort Stevens that En
gineer Hegardt has ordered that quite
a number be taken out One trap
owner will be compelled to remove
traps vauled at about $5,000, and sev
eral others will be affected to the ex
tent of from $1,000 to $2,000. In con
sequence, there is considerable feeling
among the owners interested against
Slab Kelly, of Ilwaoo, and his silent
partners. The identity of the latter
has not been disclosed, but it is whis

Rich Strikes Have Precipitated a Con-
1 trovery (or Possession.
Denver, April 23. A speoial to the
News from Idaho Springs, Colo., says:
Great excitement prevailed here today
over the dispute over the possession of
the Bismarck mine and tonight it ap
pears as if there would be a pitohed
battle over the possession of the prop
erty within the next twenty-four hours.
Those of the interested parties seen
tonight refuse to talk, but it is known
that an organized effort will be made
to regain possession of the property.
The difficulties originated almost six
months ago, when Beers Brothers, of
New York city,, failed to meet their
mining obligations. The wages of the
miners were in arrears and an attach
ment was made against the property to
seoure the debt Monnig & Bailey,
who held a claim against Beers Broth
ers, paid off the attachment and took
charge of the'mine and have sinoe been
In the past month a big strike of
mineral was made. It is olaimed by
the friends of Beers Brothers that Mon
nig & Bailey long ago paid off its in
debtedness. Last week Beers Brothers
offered to pay that firm any balance
due them. At first this seemed agree
atle and the Beers people were given
possession of the mine, but last night
Monnig & Bailey took foroed posses
sion, threatening to annihilate anyone
who attempted to eject them from it.
No legal action has . been taken as
yet, and neither side seems , to favor
such, an action as they olaim that the
law will be too slow. The mine is one
of the best in this country. : The aver
age value of ore is $80 per ton. .
NOT YET. OVER.
Trouble Said to Be Brewing In the Ven-
.: exuela Matter. -
London, April 28. A dispatoh from
Washington to the Times says the Ven
ezuela dispute is still in a dangerous
state, and that no agreement as to prin
ciples has been reached.
"Negotiations between England and
the United States," says the correspon
dent, "are at a standstill," and nobody
knows how the deadlock will be re
moved. England rejects the plan I
explained in February (tor the submis
sion of the dispute to a joint commis
sion.)".. It is said Lord Salisbury will not
overoome his repugnance to the possible
reference of the dispute to arbitration.
Instead of continuing the negotiations,
Lord Salisbury submitted an unaccept
able draft of a general arbitration
treaty, from which it is understood
the Venezuela dispute is exoluded.-
"This delay is most perilous. - Tb
Washington executive still shows a
strong desire for an honorable and
reasonable agreement; but it takes
two to make a treaty." The Times
says in an editorial, that it oannot
share to the full extent the gloomy an
ticipations of its correspondent in
Washington regarding Venezuela, and
thinks Lord Salisbury's non-aoceptance
of America's overtures does not amount
to an absolute rejection.
Prince Chllkov to Visit This. Country.
New York, April 23. A dispatoh to

ways and communications, will, in the
month of August, start upon a trip to
the United States. The trip is to be by
no means an ordinary one. In the first
plaoe the prince will travel as far as
possible along the Siberian railroad to
Krashorask and will thenoe continue
his journey to Vladivostock by express
post At the latter plaoe the prince

DOINGS OF CONGRESS.
Routine Work of the Fifty-Fourth Ses
sionSenate. Washington, April 22. With the
thermometer standing at 80 degrees,
less than 20 senators were on the floor
when the president pro tern, Frye,
called the upper house to order. Dur
ing the morning hour the joint resolu
tion for the appointment of General
Franklin, Representative Steele, Gen
eral Henderson and General Bale, as
members of the board of managers of
the National Soldiers' Home, was
adopted without debate. Cannon in
troduced a bill for the construction,
near Washington, of a ground map of
the United States on the soale of one
inch to a mile. - Mitchell of Oregon
gave notice that on Friday next he
would ask to take up the bill pension
ing veterans of the Indian wars. Alli
son followed with a report of the sun
dry civil appropriation bill and said he
would seek to take it up at the earliest
Washington, April 23. The senate
spent today on the Indian appropria
tion bill, but did not oomplete it The
sectarian school question was taken
up late in the day and brought out an
animated debate, Senators Gallinger,
Teller and Thurston opposing and Sen
ators Gray and Pettigrew supporting
the amendment offered by Mr. Cook
rell, extending for two years the time
for the entire abandonment of sectarian
sohools. Final aotion on the question
was not reached. Most of the day was
given to the oontest against the legal
claims in connection with the Western
Cherokee settlement, and the items
were finally agreed to.
Washington, April 24. The senate
today disposed of the sectarian school
question by adopting a compromise
framed by Senator Cockrell, of Mis
souri. The Indian bill, as it came
from the house, provided that - "no
money herien appropriated shall be
paid for education in sectarian sohools. "
This provision is struck out by the
Cockrell amendment, as adopted, and
it is declared to be the settled polioy
of the government to make no appro-'
pnations for sectarian sohools after
July 1, 1898, thus giving two years for
the abandonment of sectarian schools,
instead of an immediate abandonment, j
The amendment was adopted by the de-
oisive vote of 88 to 24. The Indian I
bill was not completed when the' senate j
adjourned. . During the day a bill was
passed providing for government regu-
lation of excursion fleets attending re-j
gattas; also a resolution calling for in
formation as to the arrest of Bishop
Diaz in Cuba.
Washington, April 22. For the first
time this session Speaker Reed was late
in arriving at the oapitol. Clerk Mo-
Dowell called the house to order and
announced that a speaker pro tern
would be eleoted. Hull was unani
mously elected. He had been seated
but a few minutes when Reed ap
peared, and, amid muoh laughter,
said: "The house will be in order."
Although this was suspension day un
der the rules. Cannon, chairman of the
oommittee on appropriations, insisted
on proceeding with the general defici
ency bill. The house went into com
mittee of the whole for its considera
tion. ' This is the last of the regular
appropriation bills. '...'
Washington, April 23. The house
today unseated James E. Cobb, Demo
crat, representing the Fifth Alabama
district, and voted 121 to 45 to seat
Albert T. Goodwin, Populist, but the
point of no quorum being made, the
house adjourned with the final vote
still pending. ; Five Republicans voted
with the Demoorats to reoommit the
case with instructions to the oommittee
to permit the contestants to offer testi
mony in rebuttal. ' Mr. Cobb has been
a member of the Fiftieth, Fifty-first,
Fifty-seoond and Fifty-third congresses.
He was unseated by the Fifty-first
house. An effort was made to fix
Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday of
next week for debate on the bankruptcy
bill,1 but it was unsuccessful. Mr.
Pickler's general pension bill will be
brought up tomorrow, and the debate
will probably run until Saturday. '.
Washington, April 24. The Fifth
Alabama district was not represented
i the house last night Cobb had been
unseated, but the seating of his contest
ant went over until today, when the re
port was adopted, 144 to 5 5, and Good
win was swprn in. ' On motion of
Cockrell, a bill was passed to organize
the territory heretofore known as Greer
oounty, Texas (deoided by the supreme
oourt to be a part of Oklahoma), as
Greer oounty, Oklahoma. By " an
amendment adopted, the present oounty
officers were confirmed in their tenure
until the eleotion ' in November next.
Pickler, ohairman of the oommittee on
invalid ' pensions, then called up his
general pension bill. Piokler took the
floor and made an extended speech in
support of the measure. At the con
clusion of his remarks the house, at
4:40 p. m., adjourned.
