and every memberwhodesires to talk and who was not able to participate will bo given an opportunity to state his views briefly Assistant Secretary Tlchenor has written a letter to the House Committee on Appropriations in regard to the Im migration laws and tho Chinese Exclusion act Ho calls attention fact that while tho immigrant law prohibits the landing in this country of convicts lunatics idiots and paupers who comeby water in any description it fails to moot the case of immigrants of this char actor who outer the country by land from contiguous territory Tho Department has received reports that a largo num ber of those people recently en tered tho country1 from Mexico and Canada Tlchonor suggests an amendment to tho law to proveuta continuance of this of kind immigration Ho rcccommends an increased appropriation for tho enforcement of tho Allen Contract Labor law and tho Chinese Exclusion act and also that the Sec rotary bo authorized to return to China at Government expense all Chinamen found in violation of the when completed it will not materially benefit irrigation as shown by abundant evidence of engineers The at tempt of Major Powell to use the necessities of the people to Irrigate their land as an ex cuse for vast appropriations for another purpose is very unfortunate You will ob servo that tho majority report calls atten tion to this matter In 1SS8 was appropriated for topographical surveys and for irrigation surveys In 18S9 was again appropriated for topo graphical surveys and for irrigation surveys MISUSE OF MO3TEV Major Powell disregarded the law mak ing these appropriations and used by far j the larger part of tho money appropriated for tho irrigation survey for topography Tt is a familiar rule of law that when Congress makes specific appropriations for two dif ferent purposes tho appropriations shall be kept distinct and used for tho purpose des ignated In the law I am sorry that Major Powell has placed himself above the law and has misapplied tho money in contempt of tho express provisions of tho acts of Con gress statement given to tho the Geological Survey that the bill reported by tho majority of tho committee Is in favor of monopoly and that of thominority is in favor of tho people is so far from being ac curate that there is not ascintilla of truth in it Tho majority bill dedicates tho Irri gable lands to homesteads alone whereas tho minority bill places all the public lands whether irrigable or nob practically at tho disposition and under tho control of the Director of tho Geological Survey Nothing can bo hone for the people without his im perial consent Tho idea of tho majority of the committee is that the Western States and Territories must be developed by the peo ple if at all and that this is not a paternal Government to have such vast interestsIn trusted to the control of one man The Di rector of tho Geological Survey under tho plea that the people can net bo trusted has already secured the withdrawal of alarge portion of the Irrigable lands in the West effect of the bill of the minority if passed into a law would withdraw them all until tho Director should soo fit to allow thp people to occupy them A UNION PACIFIC WRECK The Fast Mail Train Ditched far Aspen Wyoming ONE OF THE OLDEST ENGINEERS KILLED The Furious Tornado at Demolished Every Building in Its Cyclones and Tornadoes at Other Places UNWARRANTED ASSERTIONS Tho statement that tho bill of the major ity of the committee is in the interest of cattlemen is tho most unwarranted asser tion imaginable One of the evils com plained of by settlers is the men have taken posession of the land along the streams and have denied access to the water thereby monopolizing vast regions and preventing settlers from watering their stock Tho bill of tho majority contains a provision that tho under such regulations as may be prescribed by the State shall be reserved to on and others occupying the from the streams to roach tho water for tho pur pose of watering tholr for domes tic purposes This is according com mon law and according tothe usage of evfry civilized country in theworld This pro vision was intended to prevent the monopoly of water and tho exclusion of settlers from access The report furnished by the Geological Survey seizes upon this and de clares that it is in tho cattlemen and monopoly It Is strange that soplaln a provision in the Interest of the bo thus misrepresented by the Geological Survey It is possible however that the Geologi cal Surrey has pablicatiphijfor ttie purpose of forestalling public

that public interest in tho game j was dying out owing 10 tho divided local interest caused by tho Players League said It would be hardly worth while to reply to Mr Spaldings remark except for tho wide publicity of his statement that interest in baseball is dying out This is a singular statement for a baseball magnate to make even wore it true which is not in my opinion and can only bo explained on tho theory that in pursuance of its determin ation to rule or ruin tho national gamo the old League has now taken a now tack Realizing that it cannot live in its fight against the Players League under tho present conditions certain of its officials are traveling about from cit3r to city having themselves interviewed on the present state of affairs and attempting to throw cold water on public interest in tho gamo It Is noteworthy that all this talk about no interest tho absence of local prldo and meager attendance comes from National League sources Not a single Players League club lias yet made any complaint If there is any falling off of general public interest in tho game it is not duo to presence of two clubs in one city and a consequent destruction of local pride The same conditions have existed before andthe local prldo was not affected With two clubs at Philadelphia for years both have always drawn well and notwith standing the strung following of the Ath letics the Philadelphia League club entered tho field in 1SS2 and managed to build up a paying constituency A decrease in in terest if any is duo to the reckless tactics of tho old League in its attempts to kill

Dillon has drawn up a scries of amendments to tho Govern ments Irish Land Purchase bill These amendments embody in part the proposals which wore made by Parncll in his alterna tive measure as suggested in his speech on Balfours bill It is tho Intention that they should be submitted to tho Government before the motion is made to hand over tho bill to the and this course is taken with a view to shortening debate in tho committee stage and to do all that can be done to assist tho Cabinet in pushing through an Irish land measure before Whit suntide This step will probably load to a conference of Salisbury Bilfour Smith und Gosehen on one side with on the other Gladstone Morley Harcourt and Parnoll It may bo said that this arrangement although most sensible and most advanta geous for the interest of Ireland does not meet with tho approval of a majority of the followers of Gladstone and Parnoll Tho loaders havo always had considerable diiH eulty pursuadlng tho bulk of the Liberals and Parnollitos tho latter especially to fol low their guidance in tho most wise and politic line of conduct and this situation is a good deal aggravated In the present In stance Tho rank and file of the opposition would prefer to tight every clause of the Balfour bill contesting each proposal of tho Government and is strongly avorso to any conference on tho subject Naturally such a course would result in no good to Ireland Gladstones action in this matter of working to the establishment of an entente with tho Government is an instance of his wellknown disliko for obstruction pure and
