Plenty or Space Wanted.
WASHINGTON , Nov. 13. The com
mittee on allotment of space and ap
portionment of money for the gov
ernment exhibit for the Trans-Miss
issippi Exposition held a meeting at
the Department of State. Two plans
for alloting space were discussed and
reported to the board. One plan gives
about 152,000 square feet to exhibits
and the other 157,000. The first pro
vides for exhibits along the center seas
as to have a wide aisle in the center
running the full length of the build
ing. Either arrangement will , it is
thought , provide for a larger exhibit
displayed to better advantage than at
Atlanta or Nashville. In fact , several
departments ask for much lhore space
and much more money for the Omaha
exposition than was desired for the
two expositions named. It is the pur-
'pose of the board to outdo any prev
ious effort. Many new exhibits will
be made that will be highly interest
ing and of the utmost value to the
student. The board will hold a meet
ing on the 20th inst. , when the report
of the committee on allotment of
space and funds will be acted upon.
Soon thereafter the departments will
begin to prepare their exhibits. The
committee is composed of Michael ,

Hon. William J. Coombs of New
York , who acted in an advisory capac
ity to the government in connection
with the sale of the Union Pacific
railroad , is in the city for the purpose
of conferring with the attorney gen
eral ( respecting the affairs of the Cen
tral Pacific. The conference is to take
place tomorrow.
Mr. Coombs says he is not aware of
what steps the administration will
take to protect the government's inter
ests in the road. The full amount of
the government's claims approximat
es $45,000,000. and Mr. Coombs be
I lieves the road will sell at its full com
mercial value. He mentioned the
Denver & Rio Grande , the reorganized
Union Pacific , the Central Pacific third
mortgage bondholders and stockhold
ers , and the Southern Pacific Railroad
company as corporations and interests
which might bid on the road were it
offered for sale at public auction.
Mr. William Soloman , who it is said
represents the bankinghouse of Speyer
& Co. of New York , had an interview
j ! with Attorney General McKenna to
day , presumably for the purpose of as
certaining the government's intention
respecting the Central Pacific. Mr.
Soloman returned to New York as soon
as the conference was over and Mr.
McKenna declined to say anything re
garding it for publication.
It is not possible to confirm here
the statement coming from Berlin to
the effect that the United States has
offered to mediate between Germany
and Hfyti in the difference arising
from the arrest of the German sub
ject. It is gathered that while no
such proffer has been made , invita
tions have been made to this govern
ment to intervene without success.
Missouri Pacific HHil Up.
KANSAS CITY , Mo. , Nov. 13. The
Missouri Pacific passenger train ,
known as the St. Louis fast mail ,
which leaves Kansas City at 9 p. m. .
was held up by five masked robbers
at 9:30 o'clock last night at the Chicago
cage & Alton crossing , just east of In
dependence , Mo. , and less than a mile
from the famous Blue Cut , in which
three train robberies have occurred
within the last year.
The robbers had evidently intended
to stop the St. Louis limited night ex
press , which leaves Kansas City at a
later hour , and were greatly surp'isod
upon discovering that the cars which
they had captured contained nothing
j of value. In their rage they pounced
upon the express messenger and went
through his pockets , but $2.85 was all
they secured. After this they quickly

Definite Arrancnnonts Made for TnUlnir
Up the Subject Soon.
WASHINGTON , Nov. 13. Definite
arrangements have been made for
taking up the subpect of a reciprocity
treaty between the United States and
Canada , and to this end meetings have
been fixed between John. A. Kasson ,
who is specially delegated by Presi
dent McKinley toconduct reciprocity
negotiations , and Sir Willard Laurler ,
the Canadian premier , and Sir Louis
Davies. minister of marine. This Is
the result of the long and friendly
conference held yesterday between
Secretary Sherman and Sir Wilfred
Laurler. The meeting will bo held
during the present visit of the Cana
dian officials , but no exact time for
it has yet been fixed , as it will depend
somewhat on the time which can be
spared from the Bering sea sessions.
The arragements also contemplate
taking up the question of border im
migration , north Atlantic fisheries ,
lake fisheries and all other subjects af
fecting the two countries. The meet
ing with Mr. Kasson , however , will be
confined to reciprocity , as he is del
egated by the president to treat on
that subject alone.
It is not expected that the reciproc
ity treaty itself can be matured during
the present trip of the Canadian of
ficials , the desire being to arrive at
some common understanding at this
time and then perfect the details later.
The dinner at the White House last
night assisted toward a friendly set
tlement of pending questions. There
were no toasts and no speeches at tlie
dinner , but at its conclusion the Ca
nadian guests accompanied the presi
dent and his cabinet advisers to the
blue room , where a wholly informal
and personal change of views occurred.
They were on the same friendly lines
as those of the formal conference be
tween the secretary of state and Sir
Wilfrid earlier in the day and the gen
eral sentiment prevailed that the pres
ent time was opportune for more cor
dial intercourse between this country
and Canada.

D. H. Fenton , whom Mr. Duncan suc

the government in all legal proceed
ings against the bondsmen of postof-
fic officials , including postmasters. Mr.
Castle states that he has examined
the replies of about forty of the clerks
whom he notified some months since
of their probable reduction in grade
and pay and that he has made reduc
tions in about twenty cases , averag
ing about $200 each per annum. The
showing made by the remaining
twenty being satisfactory , they will
remain undisturbpd. The notions were
originally sent to about eighty per
sons , and the responses of all of them
will be scutinized carefully. I
The Hawaiian Annexation Treaty.
WASHINGTON , Nov. 13. Ratifica
tion of the Hawaiian annexation
treaty by the United States senate is
assured. The administration has made
a poll of that body and as a result
President McKinley is satisfied that
more than two-thirds of thesenate will
vote for the treaty.
It is said to be the purpose of Chair
man Davis at the first executive ses
sion to ask that a day be fixed for tnk-
up the treaty. Ratification during the
early part of the year is confidently
President McKinley in his message
to congress will present as strongly
as possible the arsument for annexa
tion. He will show that the treaty
has already been ratified by the
Hawaiian senate , and that only the
action of the senate of the United
States is required to add the island to
our territory.
Good Kepnrt From Klondike.
TORONTO , Nov. 12. A correspond
ent of the Globe sends to his paper an
extended interview with William
Ogilvie , surveyor of the Department of
of Interior , who left for the Yukon
country October 19 , 1895 , and is now
returning. Mr. Ogilvie reports there
are 100 claims on Bonanza creek ca
pable of yielding from $250,000 to $500 , -
000 and thirty claims on Eldorado
creek that will no doubt yiled an aver
age of $1,000,000 each. These two
creeks , he says , form but a small per
centage of the placers already discov
ered. The other streams in the vicin
ity , though not quite so rich , will rate
very high compared with anything
found In the country before. The gold
beariner district extends at least 400
miles from the American boundary
and is at some places 100 miles wide.
Good indications have been found , so
it is said , to assert that the greatest
weaHh. if not th * richest individual de
posits , is yet to be developed.
