OTTAWA , March 9 Groit Interest
wns taken in Wiggins storm. The
weather to-day la sprlnir-1'ko ' , nnd the
question WBB asked , "Where is the
storm ) " In nn interview to-day Wig
gins said there seemed to bo general
misunderstanding aa to when thu
storm would begin. "This" ho added ,
"ia no fault of mine , for In my alman
ac thla year I say under March , that
it will bo first felt in the Northern Pa
cific on the IGth , will strike thii con

Bx > cky mountains will pass
down the great Canadian lakes
towards the east Sunday morning. A
.groat tidal wave must already have
occurred on the By of Bengal , and a
tremendous storm must now be raging
over India. If the theory of an oppo
site tide bo true , though I have
always dlaputed it , then a tidal wave
will occur on the Golf of Mexico to
day. I am glad to know the Glouces
ter fishermen were wlso enough to keep
In shore , as they must have all pr
lahod had they been on the banks of
New Foundland yesterday morning.
I suppose there Is not a Btorm signal I

reform league , George Willlan Onrtis ,
president , after expressing the high
sonaa , signal ability , fidelity and suc
cess with which , by general consent ,
Silos W. Bart has discharged the
duties of naval officer of the port of
New York , adopted the following :
"IlESOLVED , That the removal of
t ouch officer effected by his nomination
to another position , although Unolv-
ing on his part great and unnecessary
personal sacrifice , might have been re
garded aa intended to promote reform
had ho boon replaced bynsucccmor

geniously devised , aa a serious blow at

umbarrasimunt to the work of the
civil service commission ; a violation
of the sound principles of administra
tion which the country han approved ,
which the president has commended
In hla two messages to oongrtsi and
which congrota has enacted into n law ,

HKSOLVED , That in view of the no
tion of the administration In regard to
the naval office of Now York , nnd of
the difficulties of many kinds which
will embarrass the civil torvlco com
mission , wo earnestly recommend to
every association comprising the na
tional league not to relax itsdlliycr.cj
in exposing the abuses and evils
which it Is the object of the oumrnln-
aion to correct , In Insisting that the
law to promote reform passed in obe

purposes , no loss than its letter , and in
demanding s repeal of the not of 1820

extent in Europe , and especially

not , the a person sought for as No , 1
said to ho' implicated In the tragedy
enacted in lnblin the Gth of May
last. Since my discharge from Im
prisonment by the British government
in 1871,1 have not boon connected
with any Irish organization , or with
any movement oonnooted with Irish
affairs. In fact I have applied my ef
forts diligently , and to some extent
successfully In advancing my bun-
iaet interests , and if I mistake
not shall continue no doing until I
shall have 'accumulated suflioiont to
enable a constitution shattered by
cruel Imprisonment in British dun
geons to survive peacefully the many
bitter disappointments of the past and
nnder the vile calumny of the present.
If such denial can bo necessary , I
totally deny any thought , act or par-
tlclpation in the affair referred to by
Carey or any [ connection .therewith. "

Thb secretary of the interior , upon
ao application of General Eppa nun-
on and Colonel VL L. Wood , counsel
or William McGftrrahnn , directed the
ommlsaloner of the general laud of-
ice to certify to him the procoodlnga Iu
, ho application of the Now Idrla Mln-
, ng company , to enter throe parcels of
andsof twenty acea : , each within the

ho MoGarrahan claim , with an order
o suspend further proceedings until
, ho matter shall bo passed upon by
, ho Bocrotary. The commiaslonor had
llsmlssed the appeal taken by McGar-
ahan , but the action of the secretary
under the rules of the dopattment ,
brings up the who'o ' matter for review
by the secrotniy on llo nnvits.
Secretary Fruliu hujnon hao learned
from the consul nt 0 iraau tliat imme
diately after the Vnbnsh woo fired
upon ho called upon the governor la
relation to the matter aad found that
ho had already begun nn Investigation
as to the firing and the regulations by
which it became possible. TLii was
conducted by the attorney general and
the offense was found to bo due to tho-
old regulation of the titno of slavery
and passports and to the fault of the <
police who had not immediately prc-
sentod the Valencia's fort pass to the
military guard. The responsible offi
cer of the police has been punished and
the regulation changed to tfmfc firing
a shot by the fort la now prohibited.
The governor has expressed regret for
the occurrence.
The question as to when the tax on
the capital and deposits of banks , and
bankers and natioual banking associa
tions will cease nnder the operation of
the act of March 3 to roducs Internal
taxation , has not yet boon decided.
No decision will bo made on this ques
tion until a case arises , The statement
that an opinion has boon requested
from the attorney general Is incorrect.
It Is the opinion of curtain officers of
the treasury department that under
section 13 ( which proscribes that the
repeal of the existing lawa enumerated
la this act shall not affect any right
accrued or accruing ) It will probably
bo hold that such taxes must bo levied
for the period ending March 3 , the
data of the passage of the act. Unless
this ruling ehall prevail , national
banks will have to pay tuxes on capi
tal and deposits to January 1 , and
and ether banks and bankers to De
cember 1 , giving tbo latter an advan
tage of ono month's taxes.
