Washinoto, Jnne 2. Postmaster
General Wananiuker has reached his
conclusion about the postal aid bill. It
can now be definitely stated he adrer-
tittetuenU will inrite proposala from ex
isting line and from linea to be estab
lished. Another point which haa been
decided la that the miles referred to in
the postal aid act are to be construed as
statute miles and not as nautical miles.
The attorney general, however, has con
strued it to mean statute wiles. This
was the riew which was taken also by
the most eminent lawyers in New York
who were retained by the steamship
companies to give an opinion.
The Dostoffice denartuient has no def
inite information a to the companies
which will desire to avail themselves of
the provisions of this new law. It is
stipiMsed among those which will bid
will be the Inman line, the Ward hue,
the "Red D" line, and there have been
some intimations that the Illinois Cen
tral would join with the Mallory line in

The members of his company, a colored

slang as the "round rotoin," in which
they accused Capt. Markeley with
"guard house bulldozing and cursing us
almost continually when on drills and
formations" and of "allowing a disgrace
ful and bogus check system and gambling
to be done in the company." For signin
this "round robin" tbirty-two of the
men were tried and convicted, but were
subseauently released by (ien. McCook,
who, in a general order issued from the
headquarters of the Department of Ari

for his treatment of the men and for
violating the regulations in permitting

PRENTICE MULFORO DEAD.

New York, June 2. The body of an
unknown man who was found in a float
ing canoe in Sheepabead Bay creek Sat
urday, waa identified as that of Prentice

Library, published at 53 West Four

been learned as yet as to the cause of bis
For several days the canoe, which
was covered by a white canvas awning,
had been noticed drifting about aim
lessly, and on Saturday afternoon a
boatman, impelled by curiosity, rowed
toward it and found it, to all appear
ances, deeerted. Tlie canoe bad its
name, "White Cross," painted on the
bow. On closer examination the body
of a man, lying at full length in the
bottom of the little craft, was discov
ered, life evidently having been extinct
for several days. la the boat were a
complete outfit for camping, a small
kerosene stove, cooking utensils and a
small supply of provisions. In a box
in the boat were found a banjo, writing
materials, an empty cigar cae and some
pages of brown paper covered with
Last June Mulford returned from
California and assumed tho editorship
of The White Cross Library, a monthly
magazine. Last Monday he announced
that he was about to spend a mouth or
two in bis canoe cruising about New
York bay and gradually forging his way
along Long Islund sound to Bag Harbor,
his birthplace, which he expected to
reach by July 1, when Mr. Needham
was to join him. This waa the last the
Needhams hod heard of him until they
read of his being found in the bay. The
writing pad with Needham's address
printed on it, together with other arti
cles found in tho canoe, convinced them
it was the body of Prentice Mulford.
He, for seven years, while west, con
ducted The Overland Monthly.
BLACK HILLS FLOODS.
Torrents ef Water Ito Much Damage
at aUurgls Itallroada
Stukais, June 2. This vicinity was
visited by the heaviest rain storm since
July, 1889, and from the fact that the
ground was already thoroughly soaked,
the streams, gullies and canyons be
came mighty rivers. The water fell in
sheets, and within one hour's time the
city was flooded, almost every mercantile
establishment being overflowed. Cellars
were tilled and sidewalks and small
buildings carried away before the
powerful waves like chat! in a whirl
wind. On the main street of the city
the water was nearly four feet deep,
and in the canal fully eight inches
biglier than ever known. It is impos
sible to estimate the amount of
damage done, but it will reach
into thousands of dollars. . The
railroads have ' suffered heavy
losses and present indications nro that
the travel will be retorded for twenty
four hours at least. No loss of life is
reported. Advices from Deadwood are
to the effect that the Homestake narrow
gauge road is badly washed out. Much
of the line runs through a long, deep,
narrow canon and therefore is badly ex
posed to high water.

in the east part of town. Within the
last few weeks more than a dozen resi
dences have suffered from his peculiar
mania. Huge stones have come hurl
ing through lighted windows much to
the damage of furniture and the fright
of the inmates of the houses. A shot
gun was discharged through a window
of the home of Ole Olson, the charge
barely missing a couple of young child
ren. Merchants, mechimics and labor
ing men have suffered alike and no mo

Bp.nu, June i. The main and press

ordinary interest is taken in it by the
emperor, the government and the peo
ple. An early solution is imperative,
and the situation U taking on the pro
portions of a crisis.
The ministerial oouncll was in session
several hours, considering the proposals
to reduce or suspend the duties. By
order of the emperor preliminary re
ports as to the condition of the crops,
tlie prospective supply, and the necessi
ty for prompt and definite action in
view of tho economic situation, were
laid before the council. A diversity of
opinion was manifested among the
ministers as to what action should be
Dr. Miguel, minister of finance, took
prominent part in the discussion and
strongly favored suspension. What
ever differences may have arisen in the
council, there is little doubt that Dr.
Miguel's partv will carry the day and
the measure he supports be adopted,
more especially as he is believed to re
flect the views of the emperor,
Jews Flocking to America,
Berlin, June 3. The Jewish relief
committee here states that the daily
average number of expelled Russiau
Jews passing through Chariot tenburg
is 600, most of whom are going to
America. Relatives are waiting, ready
to provide for some of them in Paris
and for a few in London. The police
will not permit them to enter Berlin, so
they spend one night at the Chariot teu
burg station and then proceed by train
toward their destinations.
Herr Isaaks, the director of the relief
committee, says the committee suffers
from no lack of funds, money and
goods being freely given, while a num
ber of the exils are already supplied
with money. The expulsions continue
in 1st. Petersburg, where groups of
Jews, including well-dressed women,
are to be seen in the streets under the
escort of gendarmes, going to the police
station before they are starttd tor the

London, June 2. In the bonseof
commons the Hon, W. U. Smith moved
the second reading of the bill for a clos

at friendly conclusions with a kindred
power. No order in council would

were obtained that the conditions of
arbitration were satisfactory, and that
sealing would be prevented except as to
7, .wo seals necessary for tne natives.
The arrangement appeared the best that
could be obtained. Sir John Ferguson
said be believed the reply about to be

ment would bring them so closely to

Utah are being succeeded by new ones.
The old Mormon, so famously submis
sive to the last of the priesthood, is a
relic. The young men of Utah are out
for polities on national lines, so much so
that the leaders of the old Mormon peo
ple's party are forced to realize that the
days when their organization manipula
ted all the offices and politics of the
territory are gone. Their committee
has issued the following notice, which
is interpreted by all as being only
jtolite way of disbanding the party.
The call reads as follows and comes
from headquarters at Salt Lake City;
The county cent ml committee and the
officers of the various clubs of the People's
party are hereby requested to meet at the
Social hull, In Salt Lake City, on Friday
evening, to consider whether, iu view of
the present political eituntlon, it will not
be for the beat Interests of the People's
party to disband, so that each citizen may
unite with one or the other of the great
national parties, according to Lie Individ

I give my cordial thanks for your most
generous reception. I am not here to

Gcthkie, Okla., June 2. The parcel
ing of lands to the Sacs, Foxes and Iowas
goes on rapidly. Agent Patrick is not in
good odor just now with the Saci and
Foxes, He formerly lived in Ottawa,
Kan., and was sent here by President
Harrison. His manner is dictatorial
so say the Sacs and Foxes and the abo
rigines resent this. Tney are bitterly
warring with him now and the Iowas and
Kickapoos, viewing tba rumpus from
the grand stand, as it were, sympathize
wkh the Hoes and Foxes. Indian Com
missioner Morgan gets a big mail daily
from both sides of the fight. George
Whistler, an Indian, treasurer of the
Sacs and Foxes, is in town to hire law

to close his store. This does not suit
