spone to the department circular au

or else the people who held the bonds
were In no great haste to exchange
them for money.

ROME INTERESTING FACTS.
, April ,4. , As India Is
a growing rival of the Ualtod States
In the supply of wheat for the British
market , American shippers will bo In
terested In the report on Indian wheat
productions by H. Mataon , consul
general at Calcutta , In the February
Issue of consular reports , which Is just
out. Matson's conclusions are as fol
lows : That India can produce an average -
orago quality of wheat at as low cost
to producer as the most favora
bio locality In the United States ;
that eho can now cnpply the Enopeau
market with about 40,000,000 bushels
annually , nnd possesses facilities for
Increasing the supply to an almost un
limited extent , ovring to the great elas
ticity of homo consumption nnd to the
vast amount of land awaiting cultiva
tion ; that in quality , cheapness , trans
portation futilities for baudllrg , safety
against damage during transit , nnd the
stability of money exchange , American
wheat , nnd especially that from the
new northwest , haa such advan
tages that there need bo no
serious apprehension nn account
of Indian competition at legitimate
prices , but that In order to maintain
this advantage it is absolutely neces
sary that America should keep pice
with India In her efforts to reduce
nnd maintain freights at the lowest
possible minimum. On the other
hand it Is an Indisputable fact that
Indian wheat .has . already become and
viU continue to bo n very lnv otJat
factor In the grain markets of Europe ,
and a check against high prices brought
about either by speculation or
any ; other unnecessary or artificial
means ; finally , that on this basis of
fair average crop throughout the
world the American farmer will have
to prepare himself to reduce the coat
of production to the lowest minimum
and bo content with small profits or
else wheat growing In India will bo
stimulated to such an extent that sub

EVANBVILLE , Ind. , April 4. Judge
Walter Q. Gresham , who was ap
pointed postmaster general to-day , la
In this city holding court. A reporter
vl < ited him this afternoon. In answer
to the question whether he Intended
to accept the appointment or not , ho
said ho had just notified the president
and secretary of state that ho would
nocopt , but that his duties hero
would detain him until Saturday
of this week ; that he could not >
reach Washington until the middle
of the ensuing week. Gresham said
that the appointment waa unsolicited
and as entirely unexpected. Ho re
ceived notice of his nppolhtmont early
this morning , the secretary of state
Informing him that his commission
had buen signed yesterday. The ap
pointment will give very general sat
isfaction In this state , whore Judge
Gresham Is honored and respected by
every one and stands at the very head
of the judiciary. Ho received the
congratulations from prominent people
of both parties.
Judge Gresham wna born In Hnrrl-
aon county , Indiana , In 1835 , was educated
catod In hla native state and after
graduating nt the Indiana state uni
versity in Bloomlngton , etndied law.
Ho soon afterwards began to practice
In Oorydon , the county Boat of Harri I-
son county , and was from the first sno
censful na n lawyer. Ho took nn no-
tlvo part in thii politics of the state.
Shortly before the outbreak of the
civil war howas elected representative
In the atato legislature , and in 18G1
was chairman of the house committee
on military affilra. When occupying
this poeitlon ho co-operated so skill
fully and energetically with Governor
Morton In the organization of the state
mllltla and In raising and forwarding
- troops that the latter , in 1801 , com
missioned him lieutenant colonel nof
the 38th regiment , Indiana volunteers.
< In March , 1802 , he was promoted n.to
, bo colonel of the 53d Indiana , and In
August. 1803 , to be brigadier general
of volunteers. Ho participated In
In the siege of Oorlnth , the siege i
- and capture ol Vloksburg , and the
- siege of Jackson , Mlsi. , and up to
Jinuary , 1864 , commanded the Third
brigade , Fourth division , of the Sov-
ontoonth army corps. Ho was bro-
vetted major general for dlotln nlshod
gallantry. After January , 1804 , ho
commanded the Fourth division of the
Seventeenth army corpi until July ,
mine year , when ho was severely
wounded In the action before Atlanta.
Ho was muitorod ont of sorvloo on the
13th of April , 1800 , and as soon ns
his strength and hrnlth wcro folly
restored , ho entered into partnership
with Judge Butler , nt New Albany ,
Ind. , and resumed the prnctlco of law
la that city.
During the war Gonrral Grosham's
rolatous with General Grant were very
friendly and cordial. When the latter
became president for the first term In
1809 , ho appointed Gresham district
judyo for Indiana This position ho
atlll holds. Iu 1881 ho strongly urged
for a place In the cabinet of President
Gufiold nnd there Is reason to believe
the roprosonatlons of his frlonda in his
behalf were regarded with much f * vor.
Jndgo Gresham was serenaded nt
tha St. George hotel nt 11o'clock , to
night , A largo crowd of cltizsns was
present. Ho was Introduced from the
b.vlcony , nnd briefly thanked the people
plo for the compliment. After speeches
an Informal reception was hold in the
parlors of thu hotel.
