both center nnd freislnniKO pirtloi are
litrongly opposed to conceding the amounts
icciulretl for tlioconstrtictlon of the two or
three ) gunboats , one ironclad , and one dis
patch heal. The oucstlon , , thoiu'li not of
etriklng Import , became one of serious mo
incut for the government , when the two par-
tics combined to oppose the Increase of the
navy on general principles. The government's
domain ! was finally limited to two gunboats.
Today's division in the roiclistau gave the
government t'JI ngalnst ? " . The constitution
requiring that ouo-halt of the members must

on Monday.
Since llio committee of the house heard
Adtnlrnl Ilollman's frank disclosures of the
admiralty's project to r.dsu ( to the
rank of a great naval power , the reichsUii |
has been thoroii'thly ' nlarmod , audit has been
dllllcult to peivtunilo that body to concede oven
reasonable doinanils. It wus painful to hoar
riinucellor Von Caprivl yesterday c\enlng
plead the necessity for two moro gunboats to
guard approaches to the Halite canal.
Dr. Wlndthorst , the coat list leader , con
tended Hint the cnnnl was not to be com
pleted before Is'.te ' , and that the buildings nnd
equipping of gun boats could well wait.
Chancellor Von Caprtvi asserted that the
canal would bo opened In IS'.fi , and hold that
Germany ouplit to huvo her vessels ready to
protect it , as it could nolbo protected bj land
fortifications alone.
The action of the house clearly declares
that iho national opinion is adverse to any
nttcmnt to make Germany a great nnvnl
power , nnd that any contest with foreign
power must Iw fought out on land , Emperor
William is very much disconcerted over the
defeat of his cherished Ido.i of a gianil navy.
His majesty hys the bl.imo for the defeat
upon the indiscretion of Admiral
Hollman in making his disclosures , , and
the chancellor's want of pinllamentary tact.
Admiral Hollinan has ottered to resign the
s-oeroturyshipof tlio admiralty. The position
of Caprivl is understood to bo critical. The
emperor has opanly taken \Valdersoo into
favor , but it is improbublo that he will sue-
ccx'd Caprlvi.
The emperor , it is bellovod , contemplates a
stronger foreign policy , together with a re
turn to the rigorous system of socialist re
pression practiced by Bismarck. Signs of
tboreadoptlonof Ihe. prince's method of gov-
eminent have gi von rlso toiepoits that the
emperor has opened communications with
The ministerial reaction against liberal
principles in dealing with the labor question
Is an undoubted fuel. The Uolchbati/uiger ,
in denouncing the dnmaml of the miners in
tbegovernnienl nits , warns the men if strikes
nro resumed , ttioy will bo vigorously re
pressed. The congress of mine owners'
delegate * , now in progress , today icsolved
unaniinoU'ly that it was impn.ssiblo to grant
the demands of the men , nnd that il
reprehensible to bring about a general strike.
Tlio congress furtLor declared Hint
the threats of the men to go
on n strike will not Induce Ihe
mine owners lo make any concession.
The attitude of the mine owners has the sup
port of the government. The authorities In
the mining districts of Westphalia and the
Ithlno provinces li.ivo boon ordered to con

view of the adoption of concerted measures
against the strikers.
A soml-otllclal note , published today in the

when Ids attorneys entered a motion for n

They alleged in tlieir allldavits thai Ford Is a

matter of fiOO espouses ; that it will require
two mouths to secure a copy of the record ns
noted by them , anil that tlio record is full of
errors. The court said that they were una-
able Jo take nny action without the ivcord.
The attorneys then offered a portion of

An Address to the I'nlillo liy the

Gnu voo , March 7. An important step was
taken today by tlio trustees of the Chicago
sanitary district. The board adopted an ad
dress to the people of ttie illilricl , declariiiL'
In effect Ihat the waterway provided for in
the drainage law -a channel fourteen feet
deep through earth and eighteen teut deep bv
Kit ) feet \\iilo through rook -cannot bo con
structed for less than ? : ! liU'JtOl)0. ' ) ) Such a
channel would give a flow of water of over
7. > llXlt , ) cubic feet per minute , whereas the
theory of llio law is that a How ol ; ! 00OiH )
culilc foot . per minute is ample ,
according to the statement of the board , for
all nurposes of sanitation and dilution , anil
will afford a channel for navigation , which
will probably not DO met at its southern
terminus ( at or near Jolict ) bj n similar
channel during Ibis gunuration , and possibly
never that is , us long as present conditions
continue. The board says by reducing tlio
channel to about a ten-foot depth the expenditure
penditure- would be reduced approximately
about tlOJlHi ( ) ( ) ) ) . The How of : iiiK ) ) > ( ) cubic
feet per ininuio is not required to bo in-
crowd until the Uniteu Slates government
make * n channel in the Disnlninos or Illi
nois ri\ 'is of a capacity to receive CiOO.OOO
cubic feet.
As the general government has not yet
taken ilalinito action toward this , it does not
scorn proper to thobqaid to plan and exe
cute sucn nn extensive work without ad
vising the people. If in the future the ri\ era
should bo so deepened as to require this largo
channel , let the people of that lime cnlargo
anil pay for it.
The board suggests to the cltl/cns that
they have the law amended in such particu
lars hs will enable Ihe trustees to execute It
In the most practical and economical way.
The address says , in closing : "This rec
ommendation In no wise trenchjs upon llio
rights of n commercial waterway through
iho Illinois river valley. On iho contrary ,
Its adoption villl do two things : Tirst , there
will result a channel tolollel much greater

Ooniiuisaiouor Morgan Sits Down on the
Disarming of the Sioux.
\Votihl I.cnvo the Indians Smarting

lor VeniviMiioo
, March 7.Kccontiy General
Aiorgan , connnisslonor of Indian nffalw , was
romie.sied by the secretary of the Interior to
give an expression of his views upon the
communication of the governor of South
Pakotn , urging the dlsarmlm ; of the Indians
In Hurt state. In reply General Morgan
states the reasons for disarming Indians are
obvious , and weighty , vie. : To prevent them
from going on the warpath , and to quiet the
Icars of the white settlcrw in that vicinity.
"If 1 thought there was redly serious dan
ger of any considerable number of Indians
going upon the warpath , " says the commis
sioner , "or that the surest way of preventing
nny Indians fiom becoming hostile was to
dlsiirm nil , 1 should be very slow lo Interpose
any objection to the measure , If 1 felt the
white settlers were In serious danger ot at
tack by Indians , and was convinced that tlieir
safety demanded the action above suggested ,
1 could not well resist it.
"Hut , so fur as my knowledge o.xtcnds , I can
hardly believe there Is now any serious
danger of an Indian uprising. I believe Iho
Indians to he , for the most part , Inclined to
peace and averse to war. They are sufllci-
ently intelligent to understand at what a
fearful disadvantage they would bo in a war
with the United States , They know our va t
resources and are conscious of their own
"Moreover , many reasons which nnvo ex
isted among them for discontent can be , nnd
bv congressional action jusl had , will bo re
moved. The settlers in the vicinity of the
reservation have boon frightened , and not
without reason , ami yet during all the ex
citement nnd In spite of the Ditter provoca
tion , the Indians huvo attacked no white people
ple In their homos , nor , so far as Iknow.lmvo
they seriously threatened their pc.ieo. These
who have been or tire really
hostile should unquestionably bo
disarmed and their leaders severely pun
ished. Hut during the late irouhlo In Uakola
the great body of the Sioux were friendly ,
and Iho innocent should not sutler with the
guilty. To make no distinction Inthotroal-
incnt of Indians who took part in the hos
tilities and those who icinnlnod loyal , many
of whom suffered for their loyalty , would bo
nn act of injustice which tlio Indian is us
quick to recognize and resent as the white
mini."It would bo n great hardship lo those In
dians lo lose tlieir arms , which they greatly
pri/o. 'J hey use them In sl.uighterlng . their
cuttle , in hunting nnd in sport. It
is with some hesitation that I sny ,
and 1 say it only after careful
deliberation , and with sincere sorrow that it
must be said , that I greatly fear the Indians
would not Do safe , either in their persons erin
in their property , if it were known they were
entirely without means of self defense.
' The recent sad events in Dakota , where ,
it Is said , women nnd little children were
shot down by soldiers of the United Slates
army , nnd others were ambushed nnd slain
wjlhout provocation .by citizens , have shown
us how pitlfnlly defenseless these' poor
creatures might bo if wholly unarmed and
unable to protect themselves To disarm the
Indians Rcnerally , and to leave the whole
body of the Sioux smailing under a seiifeo of
helplessness nnd wrong , would tend to pro
duce among them a widespread
feeling of Irritation , unrest and
distrust , disastrous not only to
the peace and prosperity of the Indians ,
but liable in Itself to bring about the very
danger which the disarming is Intended to
prevent , l-'or , should tlio arms they now
possess , bo forcibly laken from thorn , there
is nothing either in the law or the habits of
the people surrounding them to prevent them
from nrmlng themselves anew , at Ihe earliest
opportunity , by purchasing from the whites ,
"for the prevention of further
seems to mo necessary to treat them Justly
and kindly. Miilntain among them a well
disciplined , suitably paid vigilant Indian
police force , and , lastly , keep at exposed
points a small garrison of troops , sufllciont ,
in case of great emergency , to aid in main
taining order and protecting both Indians
nnd whites , "

of an American citizen by Italian custom.- ,
ofllclals at the French frontier has just boon
reported to tlio American consulate hero.
Henry Kedwk'kVatts , an Ainerican , has re
sided for the past six years at Cuneo In
Prcdmont , near the frontier. Mr. Watt- , has
been in the habit of crossing and roc-rousing
the l''rcnch frontier at his convenience.
A few days ago while returning as usual
from a ilrivo Mr. Watts wus slopped by some
Italian custom oftlccrs nnd ordered to the
nearest customs imtvnu. Upon entering the
buioati an olliclal , after giving vent to a
tirade of abuse in Italian , soiled Mr. Watts
and shook him violently. Mr. Watts
asked the inclining of the outrage
but for u reply the olllccr simply
threatened to imprison him. Mr. Watts was
then searched * but nothing of a contraband
nature was found on Him. Ho was than re
leased. Mr. Watts , however , WHS not dis
posed to lot the matter pass without protest
Ho called upon the local authorities at ( . 'unco
and lodged u complaint against the custom
olllcors who had treated him in such an un
warranted immmT. To his surprise ho found
that the customs ofllciul who had .so roughly
bundled him had boun there luforo him and
had charged Mr. Watts with outrageously
insulting an officer In the discharge of his
duty. Upon this charge Mr.Vattt was duly
tried and was acquitted , when it was known
that the accusations brought by the custom
ollU'ers ngalnst the American were not
founded upon facts. Thogovernmentnuthorl-
tins at t'unuo not being content with
the decision of the local court * , made an ap

\Vntts , immediately upon hearing of this
movi' made in the Interests of the custom oftl-
cors who had insulted him , sought the ndvlco

This , according to tradition , was Iho I'nltod

that this post was vacant , the successor of
