Favoring Postal Sav- ings Banks and Telegriph and vVASUIXGTON', Xov. annual report of Postmaster General Wana- aiaker for the fiscal year ended June 20, 1S90. was made public last night- In the administrative methods of the de- partment itself, he says, some changes for the better have been made. A new series of smaller stamps, criticized and justly criticized at first, so far as the two-cent stamp was concerned, are now, it is believed, quite acceptable to tho public. Over have been saved on the contract for postal cards; has been saved on tho contract for stampsandonvelop.es: or more has beer saved on certain Icntinsrs of contracts for carrying the mails, and at the same time the mailroutes have been extended over two million miles of rail- road, steamboat and stage Hues. The anti-lottery legislation has entailed much extra labor upon tho inspector force, Imt on the other hand the temp- tation to thioving among tbe employes of the department has been much di- minished by tbe same means. The past year has been made very disagreeable to "green goods" swindlers. The new figures given illustrate how much the business of the department has grown. The gross revenue is near- ly lareer than it over was be- fore. Almost new post-offices, more than in any one year before, have been established upon the petitions of communities which needed them. The star route mileage has increased over miles and the railroad mileage over eleven million. The railway postal clerks have reduced the number of pieces usually sent to the Dead Letter Office by two million. Ho submits a few illustrations of the enlarged service in the West. In fifteen months miles of mail service were added in the State of Washington alone. Four years ago the servics was not so large by one million miles. In Wyoming in fifteen months have been added about SO.OOO miles of service, and in Idaho in fifteen months about miles. In one form or another, says the Post- master General, the public irnperntivf- ly demands cheaper telegraphy and the Postoffice Department can supply it at less cost than any corporation, unless the latter has rent, light and fuel free and carriers and clerks without pav. This statement is supported by an ex- tended argument on the same lines as the argument made by tho Postmaster General before the committees of Con- gress. The Postmaster General recommends the establishment of postal savings banks in States having no laws regulat- ing savings banks and in other States upon petition of a considerable number of residents of any one locality. The profit from the foreign mail serv- ice during the year was more than The comoensation for trans- porting this mail, paid to lines of steam- ers to Latin-American countries, the Postmaster General says, is inadequate and he recommends the passage of tbe subsidy bill originating in the Senate and now pending in the House. The number of Presidential postmas- ters removed during tho last two years was 710. Of those were removed on inspectors' reports and 360 for "incom- petency and other causes for the good of tho service." Of the latter 219 had served four years or more. At fourth class offices the removals were in 1SSS and in IS'.IO. The not increase in the number of post-officer established during the past fiscal year was in tho preceding year. The total expenditures for the service during tho year was the rov- leaving adeficiency of S5.7S0.300. Compared with the pre- ceding fiscal year there was an increase of S4.170.T.80 in revenue and an increase of in expenditures. ENDED IV A. KIOT. FrUe Fish-.

CIIAMBKKI.AIN-, S. D., Nov. 29. Sisson, Indiaa Agent at Lower Brule, on Thursday hoard that a ghost dance was in operation at the mouth of Whito river, several miles below the agency, and he sent a force of Indian police to the scene for the purpose of breaking up the dance aud arresting the leaders. The police wore soon on the ground and making a chargesucceeded in capturing five, one. of whom was Chicken Head, who like the others was armed. He at- tempted to resist, but the police wore not to be deterred and Captain Fire Thunder, chief of tijo police, who is a largo, burly Indian, rusiied in on him and, grasping iiiiu around the waist, car- ried him bodily to the jail. It is rumored that another dance is in operation several miles up the river, which is being investigated and if found true it will be promptly br.'ken up and the ringleaders arrested. There is talk among the Indians of going to tho point below White river where tho Rosebud and Pine Uidge Indians have been con- gregating, but they are being closely watched and if they attempt it they will have to walk over one of the finest, most determined and vigilant police forces on the rnservatioi. It is not an- ticipated that those Indians will commit any deeds of violence hero, but if they should get away and join the others they would undoubtedly act with tha majority. The agent and police so far them undor control, however. OMAHA, Neb., Nov. all advices from Pine Ridge Agency are wrong, it bo safuly said that Che war is over.
