The President Has Something to Bar of Their Wrong*—Indian Lcgfnlatlon. WABnntOTotf Crrr, Jan. 0. —The president fans transmitted to oongrom a communication from the secretary of thn interior, submitting the draft of a bill "To provide for the reduction of tho Round Valley Indian reservation in the state of Colorado," with accompanying papers, "The documents thus submitted," the president says, "exhibit extensive and entirely unjustifiable encroachments upon lands set apart for Indian occupancy, and disclose a disregard of Indian rights so long continued that the government can not further temper- lie without positive dishonor. Efforts to dislodge Ire-fpiHaers upon those lands have In some case? boon resisted, upon the ground that certain monies due from the government for improvements have not been paid. So far as this claim is well founded the sum necessary to extinguish the same should be at once appropriated and paid. In other cases the position of those intruders is one of simple and bare-faced wrong-doing, plainly questioning the inclination of -the government to protect 1U dependent Indian words and Its ability to maintain Itself in the guaranty of such protection. These intruders should forthwith feel the weight of the government's powor. I earnestly commend the situation and the wrongs of the Indians occupying the reservation named to the early attention of congress and ask for the bill herewith transmitted careful aud prompt consideration." Tho bill provides for the division of the land In severally among the Indians and for other cognate matters. The senate committee on Indian affairs has agreed to report favorably bills amendatory of the act for the allotment of lands in severally In the Umatllla reservation in Oregon, and granting patents therefor; to provide for the compulsory education of Indian children, and in relation to marriage between white men and Indian women. The latter bill prohibits the man so marrying from acquiring any right to tribal property privileges, or interest whatever to which any member of such tribe is entitled,and declares the woman so marrying a citizen of the United States, endowed with all tho rights, privileges and Immunities of any such citizen, being a married woman in the state or territory in which she may reside, jnil_no_longor-a-momber—of such tribe. Both House* Quit Till Monday. WASHINGTON Crrr, Jon. a—A number of petitions In favor of Prohibition in the District were received in the senate Thursday through Platt. A bill providing for the Washington City world's fair on the centennial of the constitution was referred. Dolph and Mitchell made strong arguments in favor of a naval station on the Pacific coast The educational bill was read and Reagan spoke In opposition to it, declaring that it was part of a policy of centralization. Plumb offered an amendment providing that the distribution of the appropriation shall be In proportion to population. Tbe senate then adjourned until Monday. Very little was done In tho house other than thu announcement of committees. A bill was Introduced providing that national banks may loan money on real estate in no greater sums than half the assessed value of the same. Bills were also Introduced to reduce postage on fourth-clam matter, and for popular selections of postmasters, Cox was announced as a member of the Smithsonian Institute regency, and the bouse, to give the committees time to organize, adjourned until Monday. Illnlr Gets One on Reagan. WASHINGTON Crrr, Jan. 8.—When the educational bill came up in the senate Thursday Reagan of Texas made an extended speech against tho measure. He predicted that the passage, of the bill would be the adoption of a policy of centralization which would establish the despotism of a popular majority, the overthrow of. the constitution, and endanger the liberties of the people. It offered a bribe of money to .the people to sacrifice their manhood, their self-reliance, and their state governments. It would be the surrender by the people of their birthright for u mess of pottage. The southern states were not in need of federal aid for school purposes. The Texas school fund this year was f.3,100,000, Blair read letters from educational authorities in that state complaining of the lack of school funds, and urging the passage of the bill ' Recess Nominations Sent In.

Hopkins, who some weeks ago sent a bogus infernal machine to Chief Justice Waite, pleaded guilty in the police court Thursday, and was fined J100.

MUST ECONOMIZE FIRES. Coal Ooln B Up In the Strike Region—Re- vltiw of'the Situation. RKADINO, Pa., Jaa 6.— The situation In the Reading railway and coal strike hag not changed, both parties seeming to have settled down to study what to do next. There it talk of llw KuighU of Labor general executive board taking the matter up and Inviting the railroad officials to a big talk, but this can not be done until the assemblies directly Interested in the strike ask the general board's Interference. Besides this President Corbln has BO far adopted the principle of refusal to treat with organised labor. Coal is arriving from the individual collieries pretty freely, but the product has advanced in price, with prospects of a further advance. Furnace coal has gone up .35 cents per ton, and this ia a serious matter with manufacturers. Further suspension of Reading train crews took place Thursday, fully 400 men being laid off. The freight and passenger trains, however, are all running, and the company has any'number of applications for work. The strikers declare they will stop the individual mines by demanding that the miners refuse to dig coal to be transported by "scab" labor. Bbamokin Is filling up with non-union men, all the hotels being pressed for accommodations, although the proprietors are opposed to entertaining jjjiaunen, and—only—do-so when they receive the highest rates. In one hotel the waiter girls refused to serve this class of guosta A reward will be paid for the arrest of the parties who wrecked the miners' train near this place wleh MO men aboard. Near Ma- honoy City several switches were turned the wrong way Thursday, but the discovery was made in time to avert a disantor. COMPLIMENTS TO THE DIRECTORa A Jersey Mayor Who Would Like to Be« .a Few Funerals. NEWARK, N. J., Jan. 0.—Mayor Hoynes' annual messngo; given out Wednesday, is a unique document. In complaining of the Delaware, L:ickawanna & Western Railroad company the mayor says: "A few first-class funerals, the subjects furnished from the directors of that road, would make room for a reasonable board; one that would not troett a city of ;0.'»,000 Inhabitants, that pays them hundreds of thousands of dollars yearly, worse than they treat any country village from Hobokon to Buffalo. It becomes us on all occasions to be reconciled to the will of the Lord. If in His wisdom He should see fit to rembve some of the directors of the road, the city of Newark would be perfectly reconciled to HU merciful dispensation. 1 ' FtLL EIGHTY-FIVE FEET.

Bad All the Gore They Wanted. NEW ORLEANS, Jan. ft—Contrary to general expectations the Democratic, primary election in this city passed off without serious difficulty. There was some squabbling and some personal encounters, but, as a whole, tiie election was one of the quietest ever seen in this city. The good order which was maintained was due to the influence of the conservative element in both "factions, and the better class of citizens, who kept the toughs in check. The city gives a good majority ot the delegates to the state convention to Governor McEnery and defeats Nlchollz Dompuy'ii Opinion of Sullivan. NEW YORK, Jon. 4.—Jack Dempsey was asked his opinion of John L. Sullivan. His reply was: Tra very glad that I'm not heavy enough to meet Sullivan, because if I was I certainly would endeavor to meet him, and then I know that I would be licked.! 1 .When asked if be was willing to meet Mitchell he replied that he was not seeking notoriety by "shouting" what he would do, but that he would be on deck when wanted, and would try not to disappoint his backer.

The crowd became so demonstrative that one or two of the Williams fntnlly and Dr. boffon- dorf, who had been attending Mrs, Williams, were obliged to leave town in a hurry to avoid personal violence.

DBBUQCE, Ia., Jan. 6.— JudgeBhirasThurs- day banded down bis decision in the celebrated barb-wire case between the Washburn & Moerv Manufacturing company and the "Beat 'Em All" Barb-Wire company, ot Waterloo, Ia. He held that portions of the device on which the Olidden patent is based wore clearly shown in a patent issued to Michael Kelly in 1H>, and that the barb shown in the Olidden patent had been brought into use as early as '.859, by Alvin Morloy, of Delaware county, Iowa. Consequently be declared the patent Issued to Ql id- den In 1874 void for want of novelty. The Glidden patent Is the one under which the Washburn & Moen company has operated S3 many years. This is the first defeat the company has sustained. The case Is likely to be appealed to the United States supreme oourt.
