Washington, March 10.-The follow-mg statement to the American people has been received by the United Press from Clai a Barton, president of the National Association ot the Red Cross: For many weeks past the Red Cross baa been in receipt of letters of appeal andstatomentsin regard to suffering and destitution existing among the pioneer settlers of North and South Dakota. These appeals liave co ne to us from trusted co-workers, and those who speak by rule, as authority on such matters. At last they became so urgent as to be no longer ignored. Living here at the national capital, it was decided to call upon the senators and representatives in congress for. the new born states of ours. As one result of the interviews then had, Senator L. li. Casey of North Dakota wrote to Governor Miller informing him of the inquiries of the Red Cross, Under date of Bismarck, March 8, Gov, Miller wroie thanking the Red. Cross for the kindly interest evinced, and stating that ho had referred the matter to Hon, H, T. Helgenaen, state commissioner of agriculture and labor, with instructions to give ull particulars as to the wants of their peopla. � Under date of Grand Forks, Feb. Ssl, Commissioner H. T. Helgensen wrote in part as follows: "There are probably 5,000 to 0,000 people dependent, and a good many more who have provisions for themselves but need food for stock. Consi/lerabl=i has been received from St. Paul i^!d Minneapolis, also from Chicago and from several states, east and south, but thus far only enough to temporarily relitive the needs of theMesti-tute, and much will have to be solicited from time to tune." Commissioner Helgensen accompanies his letler with a paper which contains an appeal to the public signed by the commissioner, as follows:   "The Hiinui'iii); lor AVitnc of ProvisloiiM, clothing, fuel and feed tor stock in several counties of North Dakota is unprecedented in the state, and need< some explanation. The destitution Is almost exclusively cionflned to the lower portions of the state where the settlements idate back only two, three and four [years, except Nelson and Riimsey counties, which have been settled about six years. These now settlements werp, like early Stittlements of moat new countries, coniposed largely of people whose resources would have baen heavily taxed to succeed and keep themselves above want with fa orable seasons." The Unprecnduntud Drought of last year was doubtless felt most se- i.VfirQljVOfLU'liyiV.rllO**'^ i'"-^^*^ I V'^l"ffi.'T J^-' and'fa&ilies'-of the newly settled portions of both North and South Dakota, As Commissioner-Helgensen says, a second entire failure in some sections left many people completely destitute. He adds: "While nearly th'o entire state suffered from drouth, only seven or eight counties need much assistance. In this area are the counties whore the greatest amount of assistance is needed, viz.: Nelsoni Ramsey, Benson, Pierce, Bot-, tinesiu, Rollette and Towner. Cavalier will also need some help, as will Eldy: and Mcintosh, the latter in the southern, portion of the state Tn the counties named there are not lessthau !

Washington, March 10,-The interest of the past week in congressiotia^l circles has centered in the investigation 3f secret session leakages, in wliiph Mr, Dolph's committee has been engaged, riiat committee is now engoged in cdll-ing senators as witnesses, and their examination may keep the committee busy dunng a greater part of the week. The general impreBsion is that with this examination the inyeBtigation will cease, and that the proposed imprisonment of recreant newspaper witnesses will never takp place, Mr, Blair's educational.bill will occupy the senate's afternoons during the week, and an effort will be made to bring it to a vote Friday afternoon. If it appears that this can not be done the appropria^ tioMS committee will bring in the urgent deficiency bill and interrupt the debate on the Blair bill long enough .to pass it The committee on privileges and elec-tioDB will submit its report on the Mon-taia contest some time during the week, and Mr, Hoar will ask that it be given consideration at an early day. Much interest is fe"; in the establishment of a permanent order of bnsiness when the Blair bill shall be out ot the way. Mr, Fryo will endeavor to have the Pacific railroad funding bill taken up, Mr, Piatt will put forward the bill for the admission of Wyoming, Mr, Sherman will press his anti-trust bill (which hns had already - a - partial; consideration). Mr. Hale will urge his bill for the increase of the naval establishment, Mr. Dolph will a^k consideration for his Mexican award bill, and flnallv the under valuations bill, which will have been reported' from the committee on finance by that time, will make a strong fight for-im-mediate consideration. During . the; morning hour, through the week, the cnlendar will be considered, and the Oklahoma town-site bill may be further debated. Thrt committee on territories will push to a conclusion this week in the house, the bill providvpg for the organization of the territory of Oklahoma. Monday wdl oe consumed in disposing of mat^ ters connected with the District of Columbia. Messrs. Baker of New York and Dorsey of Neliraska have given notice that they will call up for contid-eration the bills for the admission of Wyominc and Idaho to statehood; but on account of the Oklahoma bill this part of the programme may not be car-: ried out. Tne committee on elections; �has the contested cases of Mudd vs.: Compton, from the Fifth Maryland district, ready to bring before the house; but Mr. Cooper, who has charge of the case, is willing to let the committee on territories dispose of is business before doing so. There is a probability, however, that the case will be brought up before the end of tlie week, and in this event it will be pushcrl to a conclusion-the seating of Mr. Mudd. Friday as usual will be private bill day. THE   IOWA LEGISLATUEE.

Bills were introduced as follows: To supply a uniform system of text books; to establish and maintain a state military band; for an appropriation for the boys' reform school; to prevent the manutacture and saleof adulterated food and drugs. The senate spent almost the entire time of the session' discussing Price's, joint resolution favoring the addition' by congress of a bill: to terminate the lite ot patents and pay owners thereon' a sum of from 50,000 to 100,000. The resolution was adapted: by a p irty vote- theRepublicansitavoringnndthe Democrats opposing.

'Ill the Floirery Kingdom, t 1 London, March )0,-The Liberals were never so jubilant as now, and nev^ was the work of orgianization carried bn so enthusiastically in their ranks, Th^ results of the recent Bye elections have made it certain that the Conservatives have lost their majority in ths country and that as soon as an appeal to the people can be had the Gladstonians will win, 'Rumors are again current that parliament will be dissolved immediately after the passage of the budget, > The Tories seem to have anchored their hopes on the budget, hoping by some financiering skill to regain the confidence which their policy in other directions has lost them. It is, however,.a forlorn hope Club gossip has it that Mr, Akers-Douglas, the Tory whip, resigned because of Satui-day night's counting-out of the house, which:^he government intends toexplaiuas the result of a'Lib-er(il plot. The unprecedented occurrence of such an important debate pending in such a manner is, however, too significant to : be explained on this hypothesis, and the public will not be deceived. The lact is that the government has: made such a mess of the Parnell commission matter that oven its own' supporters, though loytil enough to vote for the ministry, will not talk Jor them, nor countenance the further discussion of the question at issue. . .News from China, San Fkancisco, March 10, - The steamer Belgic arrived from Hong Kong and.

Lansi.n'G, Mich., March 10.-The mental condition of Attorney General Trowbridge of tills state has become so alarming that, as it is learned from undoubted authority, he will probably soon resign his office. The odd conduct of the attorney general and his vague and incoherent statements in regard t' hw oflioial and private atfairs aroused the apprehensions of his friends several months ago. Within the last two weeks his maiiner has become so pronounced that City Attorney Lee ot Lansing has been appointed assistant attorney genera;!, and Mr. Trowbridge's friends have taken him from his law ofBce in Ionia to his old home at Birmingham in the hope that he may recuperate there. Since he was taken to Birmingham his law olHoe at Ionia has been examined and two desks were found to be filled with official correspondence. State letters c'ated 08 far back as last summer had not been answered, and many had not even been opened. _ A Denial, Detroit, March 10.-Gen. L. 8. Trowbridge, an uncle of S. "V. R.

BuiMlNGHAM, Ala,, March 10.-Five Cherokee Indians from the Indian Territory passed through here en route to the mountains in the northern part of the state to search for hidden treasure. There is an old tradition among the Cherokees that before they left that section their chiefs concealed in a cave enormous quaiitilies of gold, silver, and copper. An old Indian womnn, it is said, knows the hiding place of the treasure, and the five men have been sent here to look for It. She could not give the exact location of the cave, but described its appearance. OHEEOKEE BOOMERS. SPRING BROS Hardware Heating Stoves, Latest Styles, Bottom Prices.
