Washington, July 19. In tho sonato
Wednesday tlio houso resolution was
passed authorizing tho secretary of stnto
to accept from Q. P. Watts, R. A., a
f minting entitled "Lovo and Life" exhib
tod by him nt tho World's fair.
Senator Carey called up the sonato bill
to reserve for 10 years in each of soveral
etatos 1,000,000 acres of arid lands, to bo
reclaimed and sold in small tracts to
actual settlers, and it was passed. Tho
bill applies to the same states as tho
dosort land law and also to Montana and
Kansas and to tho states that may bo
formed out of tho territories of Arizona,
Now Mexico, Oklahoma and Utah when
Tho Indian appropriation bill was then
taken up. Tho paragraph appropriating
f ,01)5,000 for educating tho Indians pro
voked tho criticism of Piatt (Conn.)
against tho policy of giving aid to Indian
contract denominational schools. Ho
favored tho abolishment of nil sectarian
schools and tho establishment of govern-
tnont schools in their stead.
yenator Cull suid tho various charita
Wo organizations hnd established them
selves on tho Indian reservations and tho
government had mado contracts with
them to savo tho cxpenso of erecting
Schools without considering whether
they wero Episcopalian, Mothodlst, Con
gational or Catholic. Gallingor (N. H.)
protested against governtnrnt aid to sec
tarian schools, especially when ono
church received so much more than tho
othors. Thero was already a gathering
storm in this country against appropri
ating money for sectnriau purposes and
Shot storm would break before long on
he pcoplo and tho congress of tho
United States. Tho committee amend
ment was agreed to.
Tho conference report on tho naval
appropriation was presented and agreed
to. An amendment was proposed by
Dubois (Ida.) and agreed to, directing
tho secretary of the Interior to contract
for tho construction of an Irrigating
canal on tho Fort Hall Indian reserva
tion in Idaho, tho cost to bo paid out of
monoy belonging to tho Fort Hall In

"J Mluts t San Francisco and New Orleans to
llegln Making Silver Dollars.
Washington, Jnly 10. Mr. Preston,
tho director of the mint, by diroction of
tbo secretary of tho treasury, has Issued
orders to mint authorities at San Fran-
"vind New Orleans to' begin at onco
,Vj ,, ixiuago of silver dollars and during
vno present month to coin np to tho ordi
nary capacities of the mints. Tho silver
to bo first coined will be blanks and In
gots, of which thero is sufficient to coin
about 11,600,000 at these- two mints and
at Philadelphia. As soon as this supply
Is exhausted work probably will begin
on tho silver bars of which thero is a
a year's supply at San Francisco and Now
Orleans, and probably five years' supply
at Philadelphia. So far as can be learned
It is not tho intention or tho purposo of
' tho government to extend tho coinage of
the soigniorage beyond a few million,
but it is stated that after coining what
gold may be necessary and recoinlng tho
abraded fractional silver, each of the
three mints will probably bo worked at
thefr normal capacity on silver dollars
for tho noxt soveral months at loast and
presumably to the end of tho present year,

San Francisco, July 10. Tho strikers'
riow of tho railroad situation in north
ern California was tersely given by ono
f tho striko leadors in Oakland.
"Under ordinary conditions," he said,
"about 18 or 2d froight trains are dis
patched from Oakland dally. During
the past few days tho railroad company
has sent out fivo freight trains. If this
U running trains, then wo aro beaten."
It Is apparently a scarcity of compe
tent trainmen that is troubling tho rail
road officials. At Sacramento almost
tho same conditions prevail. Ono hun
dred and fifty workmen were Induced to
go back to tho shops thero Wednesday
morning. The methods prevailing in
Oakland wero adopted and tho nonunion
men wero escorted to and from tho shops
by a troop of cavalry. The Btrikera mado
no attempt to Interfere.
Evidence was nfIordcd, howover, that
tho railroad company has still to guard
against violcnco and treachery; a track
walker discovered that tho fish plates
had been removed from over 100 yards
of track. It is belloved to have been an
attempt to wreck tho San Francisco
local train, and violcnco is feared at
Truckee, where tho strikers aro in an
ugly mood. Fearing troublo there,
Colonel Graham dispatched tho First
infantry, under command of Colonel
Sullivan, ordering htm to co-operate with
other troops of tho stato inilttia now nt
Truckee in preserving order. The troops
left Sacramento on tho oastbound over
land. Summoned All Their Switchmen.
The preliminary examination of Knox
and Wordon, who nro accused of murder
in having wrecked a train and having
caused the dlsastor west of Oakland a
week ago, began nt Woodland, Wednes
day. This atlorded tho strikers another
opportunity 'o cripple tho Southern Pa
cific. Tho strikers attorneys pummoned
as witnesses two switchmen who wero
tho only men remaining in the Sacra
mcuto yards. Their going compelled
tho company to nbandon several trains
out of Sacramento. United States Mar

STRIKE UNITED THE RAILWAYS.
Scheme to Organise All tho Western Itoads
Into One Association.
Chicago, July 10. Tho great strike is
likely to have the effect of uniting the
railways, particularly thoso of tho west,
In a closer union than they have ever
d up to tho presont. Tho General
anagors' association bandied tho Btrlke
in a manner so satisfactory to all the
roads conccrnod that they have begun to
ask why the same spirit of harmony
which enabled them to make such a fight
in dealing with tho strikers could not lx
utilized to great advnntago in traffic
matters. There is the strongest kind of
feeling that all road? should bo concen
trated in an effort to maintain rates and
as far as possible diminish expenses, Tho
thing is largely in the embryo yet, but
several schemes have already been pro-
E osod, the principal ono of which is that
11 the loads west of tho Missouri river
shall be formed in an association similar
to tho Western Passenger association,
but nt the snmo tiino entirely independ
ent of that body, but working in har
mony with it. This would mean that
the Union Pacific and tho Southern Pa
cific would bo members of tho associa
tion west of Ihe river, while tho Atchison
would be a member of both associations.
