It Is said that President Cleveland and the
secretary of war have decided that there is n
vacancy in tlm ofllee of judge advocate gen
eral of the army , and will nominate a man
for that rank very soon. General Swalm , it
will he remembered , was by the court martial
suspended from duty until the dale when he
must bo retired on account of age ,
and since then n junior olliccr has
been nctiim ns judge advocate general.
Hwnlm ha' ) prepared a petition to the presi
dent asking that Ills sentence bo set aside or
commuted , and It Is a question whether the
president will increase the pardoning power
in this instance or deeido that Swann Is al
ready olTtlio list nnd appoint his successor.
Formal applications have been ( lied by
Colonel Elmer Otis , Eighth cavalry , and Gen
eral Henry It. Mistier , lieutenant colonel ,
Tenth Infantry , while the fi lends of Colonel
Henry A. Morrow of the Twenty-first Infan
try are very active In his belialf. The presi
dent lias often declared himself In favor of
making promotions inside the army , so that
it Is assumed that ho will appoint a regular
officer if bo appoints any one. ( Jeneral Alls-

before the war.

tlio most Important move that has been mad
upon the political checker-board slnco th
election of last fall. Just what thorcsul
will bo in the Old Dominion , It Is extreme !
dllllcnlt to foretell at present , but the sltua
tlon there Is said to bo alarming , from a po
lltical standpoint. Said a. gentleman froi
Itichmond , last evening : "It Is Impossibl
to see where wo shall land politically. Ther
was not a democrat In the whole stat
who was not confident that the d <
clsion of the court would bo in ou

past. In the last ten days fortunes Jiavo bee :
made in the state In a small way by men wh

To-day they are rccelvcablo for all sorts c

"That Is dlltlcult to foretell , but the pro

DOKS CHICAGO WANT TUB IUHTII ?
"Tho city of Chicago Is nnsatlslled unless
can secure the earth , " said one of the men
bers of the board of supervising Inspectoi
of steam vessels to-day.
"What's the matter now ? " I asked.
11 Simply this : The district of which Ch
ragols a part lakes in all the great lakes fro :
Detroit to Lake Superior. The hcadquarte :
of the district am In Detroit. Clilcaj :
lias tried repeatedly to secure the r
moval of thesn headquarters from Detroi
but has signally failed each time. The u
tempt was inndo very persistently la :
spiins , but the Detroit men proved tc
Ktronir. Then Chicago conceived the Idea c
having a district of its own. fc
last summer propositions were matte
to business men in that city lookln
towards n movement which should secure tl
division of the Detroit district and tlm co :
tolldatlonof nil that part of It which cove
the west shore o' Lnko Michigan and tl
lonth shore of Lake Superior wlththo ; ( if
district , which comprise the Mlsalsstp

ous of St. Paul's commercial prosperity , 1) )
pho lu fntU.t in tier efforts In secure h
aJtfcoagu I can tell you' that a got
deal of money was here for the purpose of
securing the change. "
"Do you mean to say that the Chicaco people
ple attempted to bribe any members of the
board ? "
"I certainly do. One of their attorneys
was hero n short timeagoand asked the pres
ent supervising inspector of the Filth dis
trict about his living expenses , rent , etc. , In
St. Paul. Ho wasnnswored , as ho might have
expected to be , In a courteous manner , and
then he was told that lie could live very much
cheaper nnd very much better in Chicago ,
nnd that if he would consent t > work for the
chance n nice little stack of greenbacks
would bo his towards paying the expenses of
the removal. This occurred In the lobby of
Wllhml's ' hotel , and would have resulted In a
thrashing for the Chicago man but for his
agility in getting behind a post before Cap
tain Hayes could get In a wlmck at him. "
WOIIK OP THE COM.M1TTKKS.
WASHINGTON , Kcb. 5. [ Press. ] The
bouse committee on military affairs to-day
passed favorably iiiwn Representative Lnlrd's
bill for the protection of Arizona and New
Mexico. It provides for the raising of a regi
ment of volunteer cavalry In each tcriltory
for one year's service , to be composed and
ollicered by actual settlers of the territory ,
and tlmt two Mexican ponies be furnished
each olllrer and soldier , and whenever they
nvo Insiillicient to make vigorous pursuit of
hostile Indians , rculmcntal uuartermastcrs'
are authorised to supply the delielency from
any herds accessible without any delay or
advertisement or inspection , giving vouchers
for such animals as may ho taken from pri
vate citUons. Pack animals are to bo pro
vided as a means of transporting supplies In
addition to regimental wagon trains.
The house committee on shipping to-day
further discussed Iteprebcntntlvo Dunn's free
ship bill. The discussion indicated a division
on strictly party lines , but probablv no vote
will ho taken on the bill for several weeks.
The house committee on territorial to-day
heard the delegation of Indians representing
the live civilised tribes of Indian territory in
opposition to the bills for the or-
canization of the terrltoiy of Oklahoma.
The Indians expressed general opposition to
these and all the bills affecting their present
relations with the government. All thov
wanted was for the government to keep faith
with thciu , and the organization of the terri
tory of Oklahoma they claimed would bo a
violation of the treaty stipulations. Iteply-
Ing to ex-Ucprcsentatlvo Clark's charge that
Oklahoma was now simply a pasture ground
for cattlemen , they made counter charges in
which they accused Clark and others who
urge the organization of the territory of
being In collusion with railroad companies
The president pardoned ( leorgo II. Slmms.
who was convicted of participating in the
conspiracy to defraud the government in a
pension case , and sentenced to live years in
the southern Illinois penitentiary.
Six Men Nearly Burned to Death in
ST. Loins , Feb. G. A terrible attempt upon
uiman life was perpetrated last night shortly
ifler 10 o'clock in a shanty near the railroad
racks In East St. Louis. The railroad men
ivbo happened to be out were attracted to the
by the glare of fire and heart-rending
creams ana the cries from six men who
ivcro In the shanty. The door was broken
tlown and two men rushed out enveloped In
flames , while four others were carried out
no. rolled in the snow. The faces of the
ictims were blackened and long strips of
ilesh peeled off , presenting a horrible sight.
Tho-unfortunato men were taken to the relay
ilcpot , and while tliero told how the
lire originated. They liad strolled Into
Jie shanty ono by one to get warm
and were sitting around the stove talking ,
when suddenly the stove burst open and
( lames leaped all over the room , enveloping
llio men before they could turn to the doors.
The lire ' was the result either of a practical
.1oko or a deliberate attack on their lives to
settle an old grudge. The strange manner
from which the lire started can only bo ac
counted for on the ground that some wretch
poured oil down the chimney to the stove.
Jt Is said the man who perpetrated the- deed
is known , as ho had a grudge against one of
the men and declared out recently that he
would get even with him If it took years to
do It. Near the shanty was found an oil can.
The railroad men who ran to their rescue saw
a man retreating from the shanty. If the
man had been captured ho would have been
lynched. The six men are all fearfully
burned , but it cannot bo learned whether any
of them were fatally injured or not.

The Times "Washington special says :
Although the government lias spout large
sums of money for surveyors In Nebraska ,
evidence Is rapidly accumulating that much
of the work paid for was never done. Deputy
suiveyorswho got contracts ran exterior or
township Ilncs-al least they inn part of
them and In iiany : cases they never made a
pictcn&e of running the Interior lines , for
which they were also paid. It Is not likely
that I hey wore allowed to make largo sums
of money by cheating the goveinment In this
way without being obliged to divide with
some other people.
Tlio Times prints a letter from Alexander
Sclilcgel , county surveyor of Drown county ,
In which tlie writer , under date of January
31 , says to Surveyor-Gcneial Gardner : "In
the pa1 ? ! two years I have been frequently
called upon to survey In towns 23 to US ,

critically .searching at every forty and eighty
acre claim for evidence of any corners or
marks of government survey. "

WASHINOTON , Feb. 4. [ Special. ] Al
though the government has spent largo.sums
of money for surveys in Nebraska , evidence
s rapidly accumulating that much of the
ivork paid for was never done. The deputy
surveyors who got the contracts ran the ex
terior or township lines at least they ran a
part of them and In many cases they never
made a pretense of running the interior lines ,
for whicli they were also paid. It Is not
likely that they were allowed to make large
sums of money by cheating the government
In this way without being obliged to divide
with some other people. The following let
ter and affidavit give a pretty good idea oi
the way tilings hove been running for years ,
not only in Nebraska , but in all parts of the
public domain :

F. Gardner. United States Surveyor General ,
riattsmoutii. Neb. Dear Sir-I : have thd
honor to acknowledge the receipt of youi
letter of the auu iust. , stating that complaint
had been entered with you by residents oi
this county in regard to public surveys , and
askingmy testimony as county surveyor in
regard to the facts. In reply 1 have to state
that complaint in rcsard to public surveys in
tills county is mainly conlined to townships
25 , 20 , 27 and 23 north , ranges 20 , 21 , 22 and
23 , west of the sixth principal meridian. My
own personal observation and knowledge ,
however , only extend to towns 25 to 28 ,
ranges 20 ana 21 west , having never been
called upon to survey in ranges 2-J and 2:1 : ,
In tlio past two years I have been frequently
called upon to survey In towns 25 to 2s ,

of a government survey of subdivision or in
tcrlor section lines , although I have traversed
said towns from south to north , and from

at every forty and eighty chains for evidence
of any corners or marks of a governmeni
survey. The townships or exterior lines ol
said townships are the only evidence of agov
eminent survey , and have been easily traceii
by me. A copy of the field notes of sak
towns In my possession would indicate thai
no actual survey was ever made , because tliej
are untrue as to topogiaphy and character oi
cell ; notably towns 2r , 20 , and 27 , ranges 2 (

area of from 10 to luo acres , some of them con

some of the o lakes , and many coinen
would certainly fall on them , yet no note o :
e\idenccof such lakes is shown in the licit

a white ssuid bottom , and are permanent
Tlio wast season was ono of extreme drought
in this bcctlon , yet none of these lavircr lake ;
were much affected thoieby. The absence o
a subdivision survey of these towns seriotislj
retards tlio settlement of them , yet quite i
number of persons have settled in tlm valley ;
Mid on the lakes who are seriously incon
vcnlenced because they cannot II ml the line :

which latter they took out their entry papers
and now have asked tlio honorable coinmia
slouer of the general laud ollico to cancc
Raid entries and to allow them to outer upoi

that as county surveyor I have no right o
authority to permanently establish lines ani

The General Assembly.
Dr.sMoi.NKS , Iowa. Feb. n. ISpeclal Tclo-
rram. ] Tlio principal tonic ot discussion In
he legislature so far has been the coal screen
question. The present lack of law has per-
nttlcd grave abuses to arise In the SCICCH-
ng of coal , miners In many Instances being
enuircd to mine merchantable coal for which
hey receive no pay , owing to the largo
noshed screens that arc used. Several hills
o remedy the evil have been Introduced but
ho latest and most novel bill was Introduced
o-day by Senator Young of Atlantic. Tlio
) lll allows mine owners to screen their coal
n their own way , but prohibits their hanging
> f screens. The miners , under the proposed
aw , are to bo paid for the lump coal which
hey take out , and arc to havir divided
among them 40 per cent of the
gross receipts from the sale of pea coal , nut
coal and slack , the amount to bo apportioned
among the miners on the lirst of each month
ho other CO per cent of the receipts from that
source to go to the mine operators. The sena-
or claims that his bill will divide the Interest
n the small coal or wastcand , will remove the
cmptatlon to widening screens , and will not
encourage the increase of small coal , which
would bo the case , ho holds , by a law requlr-
ug the coal to bo weighed before screening.
The design of the bill Is to divide tlio Interest
of tlio mine owner nnd mine operator In such
way that the Interest of ono will Incidentally
afford protection to the other In regard to
he small coal or waste which occasions all
The senate spent the greater part of the
session to-day in considering the Clark bill
for requiring instruction in the public schools
on the effect ou the human system of alco-
mile liquors and narcotics. The bill Is prac
tically the same as the Missouri law on this
subject , and similar laws are found in four
teen states. Petitions representing lfl,000
names have been presented asking for a law
of this kind , and It has seemed to be a very
[ topular measure. Hut when the bill came
.ip on its passage to-day , it was
opposed by Senator Boiler ( dem ) , In
v speech of over an hour. Ho took
occasion to denounce the people who asked
for the bill as snivelling , drivelling fanatics ,
and made a ecneral tirade against total ab
stinence , and then sought to ridicule the bill
down by offering an amendment to require
teaching on the pernicious effectsof a piotec-
tlvo tariff. Ho was answered by Senators
Young , Sweeney and Clark , the latter giving
liim a fiery rebuke for Ids denunciation of
Ihc temperance cause.
The wiser democrats are very much an
noyed over Bolter's speech , as it struck
directly at the position which the democratic
party lias taken In favor of impressing In-
tbmperanco by moral suasion and Instruction
on the evil effects or the drinking habit.
Every icpubllcan votett for the bill , nnd only
democrats against it , thus commuting their
party to opposition even to teaching temncr-
anco in the schools. The democratic party
thus goes on record in the senate as opposed
to prohibition and opposed to the opposite
means of suppressing intemperance , a posi
tion which their shrewder leaders regard as
a great blunder and an unfortunate mistake.

A Gallant Soldier's IJntclicry.
\VASIUX < ITOX , Feb. f > . Senor It'omcro ,
Moxlcau minister at Washington , has re
ceived fiom the government of the state ot
Chihuahua ( Mexico , ) an oniclal report of the
unfortunate encounter which the Mexican
forces had with United States troops eom-
uanded by Captain Crawford nt the moun
tains nt Davis , Chihuahua , on the llth nit.
It Is stated In the teport that the Mexican
force , commanded by Major Maurice Cor-
rcdor , arrived on tlmt day at n place called
rioparlo , In Sterro of Bavls , where they
enow that tlio Apache Indians who had re
volted under the leadership of Gtronlmo
were. The Mexicans lired on tlio United
States troops in tlio belief that they weroiios-
; lles. in tlio light which ensued. Major
Mauilco Corredor , First Lieutenant Juan do
la Cruz , Privates Martulim Mudld and Luz
ISstrada worn killed ami four other soldiers
wounded. That as soon as the Mexican
forces found that thov were ilrlng on United
Stutes soldiers they stopped lirlng. and ex
pressed to the latter their regrets at the loss
occasioned to both commands.
Tlm leport gives as an excuse for the above
mistake Hie dllllciilty ot distinguishing the
renegade Indians liom scouts , and says
while ( lie latter generally behaved themselves
while in their camp ami under view of their
oilieers , when they got out under the pretext
of hunting or looking for hostile Indians or
others , they sometimes commit great depre
dations on peaceful Inhabitants'of the fron
tier , and cannot readily bo distinguished
from hostile Indians. It was reported from
Mexico that the scouts killed and wounded
on the 17lli of December a consider
able number of cattle and horses be
longing to n Mexican , and on tlm 23d ,
while they were in camp at a place distant
about a mlle from Ouasabas , Sonora , ycYen
of the scouts entered the village and com
mitted gicat outrages , and Iho mayor was
forced to ask for armed forces to bring them
to order , and ono of the scouts was wounded
md some Indians killed two men who were
leading mules loaded with goods which were
stolen by the scouts.
The leport says further that the Constitu
tion , olllcial journal of the state of Sonora ,
contains a detailed statement of all the out >
rages committed by the scouts , and tlio result
has been to address a petition to the general
government not to allow the scouts to cross
over Into Mexican territory.
