A 0!Q BURDEN. •Return* Show » Total 9850,000,000 of Mortgage* nnft* In the Vnlt«4 States. yf ; • WASHINGTON, Dfe 4.-*The:inqMfy ot the Census Office into : iB6rtgfftge ipdebt> edness is nearly completed. There- pott will be very interesting and valuable. Out of nearly 2,800 counties only ten remain at the present time incomplete, the mortgages for ten years having been abstracted from the records. A total of something ovee, $850,000,000 in mortgaged has boon found, the largest number in tbe Western States. Relatively speaking the Southern States were found to be much freer from Ifeese incumber ances than the Northern. An excep- j past year, tion, however, to this is noted in the newly-developed manufacturing districts of Alabama, Tennessee and Georgia. In districts like that of Birmingham the mortgage indebtedness is large, but 90 per cent, of it has been contracted for purchase money, plants, lands, etc. In other districts of the South mortgages are given as security for "farm supplies," but this is an unimportant object of indebtedness in the North. , As an illustration of the completeness of this work in what are termed inquiry counties it is necessary only to say that in Madison County, 0., a total indebtedness of something over $3,000,000 was found to be incurred for the following purposes: Purchase money, improvements, business puiposos. purchase and Improvement, security, purchase of other land, business losses, speculation, stock un<l Implements, farm losses, family supplies, purchase money and stock, crop failure, bank failure, travel, farm supplies, Improvements and buying of stock, small debts and accrued Interest, education, medical attendance, dissipation, borrowed money, rental defalcation, accommodation, funeral expenses, alimony, family expenses and Improvements, interest, unknown, to pay taxes, attorney and court fees, private debts. In this case about 75 per cent, was for purchase money and improvements, nearly 10 per cent, for business purposes, and the remainder for the varied purposes set forth above. The results of the investigation may show a large amount of indebtedness, but when the causes are thoroughly analyzed the burden will not seem such a heavy one as some imagine. AsstnibO" la and Alberta, tho throe great fertile pfov inoes of N orth- western Canada, have perhaps been the most carefully watched portions of tha North American continent during the These three provinces have been aptly termed the granaries and pastures of Canada. Manitoba has nearly 74,000,000 acres of the richest Boll, peculiarly adapted to the growth of wheat and other cereals. Assinlboia has something over 84,000,000 aorea of fat lands specially suitable to mixed farming, and Alberta has 45,000,000 acres of land as fertile as can be found, vast expanses of natural pasturage, and broad districts rich In coal, minerals and timber. In these three provinces there is an abundant water supply, furnished by a multitude of lakes, rivers, creeks and springs, and no portion of the globe can claim a more healthful climate, nor one better adapted to the growth of tho finest grades of wheat, or to profitable agriculture In all ! its branches. The past season was a fine illustration of the wonderful advantages and productiveness of the country; wheat and other cereals, roots, vegetables, hay, etc., all yielded enormous crops, and there Is more genuine prospenl-y and contentment to-day among the settlers of Northwestern Canada, than has been recorded in the history of any newly- opened agricultural region. Among all these millions of acres of fertile lands, free as air to all who seek for new homes upon them, settlers from every nation of Europe, from the older parts of Canada and from many parts of the United States are rapidly securing farms and laying the foundation for a future competency. the?

INDIANS TO General Miles Will Take Personal of the Campaign Against the Rebellious Sioux— His Plan of Action — Preparations Made at Washinuton for War. CHICAGO, Dec. 4.— General Miles returned from Washington Wednesday. He was too busy to talk, but it was learned that tho policy agreed upon by the War Department is to surround the Sioux with all available troops and give the Indians an opportunity to know what they might expect if they become too unruly. When the troops have been stationed then there will be an attempt to disarm all the Indians who are hostile or who might become so. It is hoped that under the influence of superior numbers this may be accomplished without bloodshed. General Miles thinks the situation is hopeful. He is very busy sending out directions for the purchase of horses and supplies for soldiers who are now en route to tho scene of threatened trouble. The General will proceed to the Northwest in a day or two to take personal charge of the campaign against the Indians. WASHINGTON, Dec. 4. — General Cirtch- eon, chairman of the House military committee, has completed his rough draft of the army appropriation bill.

One item is $300,000 increase for the transportation of troops if it becomes necessary to mass large forces at the centers of Indian hostilities. Another is $150,000 for horses and scouts, Indian police, cavalry and artillery. The annual item for subsistence is increased by $300,000 to provide food for the added numbers in a campaign. WANT.

DBS MOINES, la., Dec. 4.—Headquar- ers have been opened in this city for he receipt of supplies to be sent into listricts of Nebraska and Oklahoma, and canvassers are at work*on behalf of ;he sufferers. Clark Kester and J. C. ktcConnell represent Frontier and ad- oininp counties in Nebraska, whore the greatest suffering exists. A commission appointed by Governor Tbayer, of Nebraska, has submitted a report showing an almost total failure of crops :n twelve counties, and 10,000 families are in want. In Frontier County there are 8,000 people; and a large portion of them are becoming desperate. The extended droughts ruined all crops. Wheat only yielded one or at most two bushels to the acre. There are no vegetables. All the salable stock has been disposed of d that remaining is being killed. The animals are too small and poor to furnish much food. Being a new country the people are mostly in debt. They can not meet their notes or pay interest. Local bankers are quite generous in extending the time of notes (tod mortgages, but the people are in immediate need of food and clothing.
