T., All'lISTS MATERIALS Fresh Garden Seeds, Diamond Spectacles, WASHINGTON, .July answer; to inquiries in regard to irrigation sur- veys contained in a recent Senate res- olution was pent to tho Senate to-day I by Secretary Noble. He states that tho Director of the Geological Survey I actually surveyed and marked tlie i boundaries and areas of the nites for reservoirs by him selected under the I Act of 1888, and the tracts are so seg- i located and so marked that they can bo discovered on the ground and delin- eated on the Land OlFice maps. The reservoir selections contain only so much land as has in each instance bt'pn reserved as intended to be used for the storage of water. It was not intended, the Secretaiy says, that the surveys and nelectious under the Aet of 1888 were to be can led to the extent of planning a system of canuls, ditches, creeks and furrows for th distribution of water over farms, which it is deemed tho people, when they come to culti- vate these lands, can bolter do them- selves. The general purpose and plan of tho Department, the Secretary says, is to preserve the son ires of water sup- ply from tho possession or appropria- tion by individuals or corporations. It is believed, ho says, to be the duty of his depaitmcnt, so long as this statute remains, to enforce it, that its fruits at least in the preservation of the sources and reservoirs of water may bo kept tinder either National or State Governmental control. -CO TO- J.

Gates of Alalnura, rising to a question of privi- lege, offered a resolution for an inves- tigation of the charges of corruption against members of tho House con- tained in a recent editorial in the Na- tional Economist. After some discussion the Speaker ruled 'the resolution not a privileged ono. On doing so, he said the edito- rial wns of the vilest character. It made no accusation except by infer- ence it made no statement upon which anybody could bo expected to predi- cate a belief or conviction that it was within the knowledge of every mem- ber that paragraphs of this character are floating around in the newspapers of the country, and the HOUBC could see the inconvenience which would result to tho businees of the House if any member bad the right, on the production of a paragraph like this, to demand an investigation. The House sustained the decision of the chair, an appenl having been taken by Gates; yeas 95 nays 71. The House then went into Commit- tee of the Whole on the Senate amend- ments to the sundry civii bill.

Armour wore seen this morning in regard to tho story pub- lished: in the, morning papers to the effect that a syndicate including these gentlemen had arranged for the con- struction of mammoth canning estab- lishments and stock yards near San Francisco. Peter E. Her of Omaha, Neb., the head of the San Francisco end of the syndicate, in an interview, stated that acres of land had been purchased at Baden, thirty-miles from San Fran- cisco, and that this immense tract is to be used for the proposed establish- ments. ___ "The said Mr. Iler; "is composed of George W. C. Simpson, President of the George H. Hammond Packing Company; Nelson Morjrisof Armour Co.; C. Armour's partner; George F. Swift and S. W. Allerton Co. The company will start a bank, so the stockmen will have no trouble in getting cash on de- livery of their stock. It will run re- frigerator cars and deliver meats at long distances, and will, furthermore, run its own steamers, branch rail- roads, etc. The establishment is to he in working order by next January or February." "Yes, that's said Allerton, when shown the story. "That is stated correctly in every particular, as far as I can see. The syndicate has been formed and will commence oper- ations as soon as possible. "Is Armour interested in the deal "Well, I can't speak for Armour. You will have to see him, but it is my understanding that Armour is con- nected with tho company. However, I cannot say positively as to that." Webster, of Armour Co., was also seen. He denied the story. "That is a he said "But Allerton says it is correct." "Well, I suppose it is, partially. There are stock yards in California in which Armour is interested, but this s'ory of building canning establish- ments out here is incorrect. There is no such deal on foot with which Ar- mour is connected. UKEV1TIKS. silver, til. The total gold shipments of this wvek amounted to two and a half millions. LOCAL INTELLIGENCE. A LAMENTABLE ACCIDENT. A Petted Baby Boy Drowned in the Ititch. A sad drowning accident occurred to-day about noon, whereby a little child barely three years of age lost its life in the waters of the English Mill ditch. E. J. Gallagher, a carpenter by trade, lives with his wife and five three girls and two a little cot- tage near the corner of Sierra and Sixth streets. The English Mill ditch runs immediately back of the house, which is protected from it by a fence and gateway with a latch. The other side of the fence there are a few feet of ground bordering the ditch, across which a footbridge leads to an outhouse. There are also three steps leading down to the water level to enable the family to bucket up water. The three-year-old boy, Eddi when last seen by Mrs. Gallagher was sit- ting on the back steps, and as she re- turned to the Kitchen her last injunc- tion was Eddie, be careful not to fall in." Twenty minutes later she missed him and frantically notified the father, who was employed near bv. The body of tho little boy was found floating and bobbing'tip and down like a cork near Newt Evans' place. All attempts at resuscitation were useless, tho little fellow was gone beyond hope, and the corpse was taken back to his home. The supposition IP that tbe little fellow after being left on the stoop bv his mother started to go to the edge of the flowing stream and in some way stumbled in. Though the water i's only 20 inches deep at that point, it flows with a swift current, thatqnicklv curried him off beyond available human hearing. The wind also was blowing heavily at the time, prevent- ing his infantile cries from being heard. The afflicted mother and father were the recipients of much condolence and tearful sympathy b> the neighbors in the vicinity. STILL ADVANCING, And Htlll Farther Advance frobuble. A dispatch from Washington says: SilvaiKare dealers here and in the Southnave been notified by the man- ufacturers that prices have been in- creased 15 per cent, owing to the rise in silver bullion, occasioned by the adoption of the Silver bill; also, that a still greater increase in prices is an- ticipated and have been advised to give orders for future delivery, it jg stated at thn Treasury Department that the price of silver bullion is expected to to to 15 per ounce within a few week. The parity for silver bullion is about 129.29, and it was stated during the discussion of the silver bill that if tlmre should be absolute free coinage bullion would reach that parity within ninety days after tbe measure became a law. Purchasers of silverware are all paying 15 per cent more than they were paying thirty days since. CHOLERA IN ARABIA. Disorder in Samoan Islands.

Five-Cent By Associated Press.] Nnvr YOKK, July 30. Lucius Brings, a business man of Glasgow, Cinn., has suggested a novel plan for raising funds for the erection of a monument to General Grant. He has written letters to ali the Governors of the Northern States to secure their aid, and has laid before them the sug- gestion that every man, woman and child of the people comprising the population of the Northern States contribute five cents each. This would yield a total of svhich would be all that is necessary for the purpose. Tc collect the money he suggests that an organ- guuization be effected in every school district in the State to which con- tributions should be paid.
