i WASHINGTON. Jan. 16. The lasl
of the crew of. the Monitor in her world
famed battle with the Merrimac is
dean. Lieutenant Samuel Howards her
pilot, slipped and, fell on the pavement
in front of his home in this city j last
week, and fractured his skull. He iiev-
away on Saturday. He was 7j years
of age, and had passed upwards of. half
a century upon, the sras. lie was an
Irishman by birth, ran away from home
when only i6,,and came to thi United
States,. whence he cruised to alt parts
of rhe world. .When the war began, he
was captain of a merchant vessel. , but
left his position to, enter . the volunteer
navy as a lieutenant, where he" rendered
good service. No small part of the
Monitor's victory was due.- to his skill
in maneuvering her. ; I -
General Shafter has been ordered to
come East as escort - to the, body of
General I-awton. It is understood that
vhe asked for this assignment so as to
get transportation to this city, where
he wishes to do a little lobbying? for
the bill retiring him as a major general;
7 he bill, which failed in the last con
gress, docs -not mention him by name,
but authorizes the president to I ap
point as major general on the retired
list, any officer who- commanded ( an
army in Cuba. This language fits! no
one except Generals Shafter and Miles,
and as the latter is already a 'major
general it 'is obviously intended j for
Shaftcr's bene fit. i
General Miles has recommended that
the srtillervschool at Fortress Monroe
be rc-opened-as soon as tos.iblc. I It
was closed on account of the depletion
of its teachers and students on account
of the war with Spain, and - has re
mained closed for the same, reason.
General Miles thinks that the develop
ment of our artillery make it absolute
ly necessary, that training shall be giv
en in the management of the compli
cated mechanism of high powered guns,
and that it will be best to conduct I the
school With only one-half or one-fourth
classes than not at all. The electrical
school fir enli.stcd men is already" open.
The surgeon general of the army has
"recommended ; the appointment of a
board of , medical officers to make; an
exhaustive investigation of tropical dis
cases, in order to determine their Cause i
and the best method of treatment. Thin
action is taken on the theory that it will
be necessary to maintain garrisons, of
United States troops, in the Philippine
and Puerto Rico for a long time to
come. Major Walter Reed, surgeon,
now on duty in the surgeon general's
office in this city, will be president of
the board. ''' !
A resolution to investigate the pen-
-sion btirctr, has been introduced! in
congress, by Representative Curtis of
, Kansas, who charges that Commission
er Evans is violating the pension act of
March 6, Over 197.ro claims
were rejected last year, when a i fair
construction of the law would, it is said,
have passed, most of thern Mr. Curtis
wants a connnittcc of five ex-Union of
ficers appointed as the committee I of
investigation. '- ' : f ' p
The strongest sort of an effort! will
bt made in congress this year to pro
vide for bettering the militia of t the
country.' At present, the United States
appropriates only $400,000 a year I for
the equipping of all the mititta of all
the states. This is just about half of
'annual cost of a single cavalry regi
ment. If more money were supplied,
the militia could be organized on i the
same basis of equipment as tlie regu
lar army, thus avoiding hereafter I the
mass of complicated details that fell up
on the government when the war with
Spain was begun. An effort to appro
priate a million dollars last year i met
with failure, but it is hoped that j the
result will be more favorab!c this year.
Robert P. Skinner,, consul St Marse
illes, France, in a report toj'the State
department, says: "The olive crop in
Italy. France, and Spain is practically
a failure. As compared with an aver
age cropt it will hardly reach 30 per
cent, in the opinion f well-informed
judges. In some sections, the fruit is
still trpon the1 trees, but- enough is
known to warrant the expectation of a
steady rise in prices. The Italian olives
are the greatest sufferers from the pest
to which extsting conditions are due,
the south of France being alo sffected,
and Spain in some localities, j The
damage has been wrought by, a fly
known as the Mosca olearia. which
deposits its egss in the green fruit. ' A
f.rub is hatched, and this grab destroys
the olive, or at least so injures it that
the oil is very inferior in quality, and is
especially bad for table use. In Europe
olive oil is oscit very generally for tfre
purposes for. which lard oil is employed,
in America.. - - - '; ' . 's ? "

belief is growing that the law as a
whole will, never be repealed.
While nearly all of th; three-cent
nickel pieces have been collected in
the treasury, ' Representative Berry
wants a new form prescribed for those
now out. , Recently, he introduced a
measure which provides . that the fu
ture weight of these coins shall be for
ty grains, troy, and they shall be of the
same diameter as the one cent pieces,
but they shall have a round hole in the
center one-quarter of an inch in diame

der the surface of the gronnd in the
eastern portion of the state of Colora
do, can be made available for the irri
gation of arid lands. Mr. Bell, -of the
same: state, has introduced a bill pro

Southern Ute Indians of Colorado,

Wyoming be permitted to relinquish
to the United States certa:n lands here
tofore selected and to select other lands
from the public domain in lieu thereof;
and reimbursing the state of Wyoming
for money expended by the territory of
Wyoming, in protecting and preserving
the Yellowstone National Park during
the years 1884. 1885 and 1SS6. .' .
Many 'bills of interest tobc' people
of the extreme Northwest were intro
duced in congress during the past week.
Among those was one by Representa
tive Jones of Washington, amending
the lawi governing the Mornt Ranter
national; park afid Pacific forest reserve.
Mr. I Cushroanof Washington, intro
duced a bill dividng his state into two
judicial districts, instead 01 one. as at
present He also introduced a bill di
recting a survey of Gray's Harbbr with
a view to dredg'ng a channel between
Aberdeen" and Hoquim. According to
a bill introduced by Mr. Foster, of Illi
nois, the salaries of deputy collectors at
Tacoma and Seattle are to be fixed by
the secretary of the treasury. Mr. Jones
introduced a bill appropriating $175,000
for a convalescent military hospital at
Vancouver Barracks; also a bill author
izing the private sale of the unsold
lands of the Umatilla "Indian reserva
tion. The secretary of the treasury has
recommended the passage of the bill
extending the privilege of "immediate
transportation of duitable gods to the
Astoria. Oregon, and a senate commit
tee has favorably reported a bill grant
ing thc'samc. Senator McBridc has
introduced a bill referring to the court
of claims the claim of the Kathlamet
band of Chinook Indians for money de
rived from the sales of their lands. Mr.
Cushman has presented a memorial and
a bill authorizing a survey for the con
struction of portage railway at The
Dalles. I The - building of the portage
road , would, it is said, be worth mil
lions of dollars annually to Eastern
Washington, Eastern Oregon, and all
of Idaho, for the reasons that the rivers
there follow the prevailing lines of trade
and transportation more even than: do
any other of the greater rivers of the
country, an dthat the vast resources of
the section named, known as the "In
land Empire," in wheat, live stock,
lumber, and minerals require more and
cheaper transportation facilities.
