A census bulletin shows that Alas- ka's total f~trm wealth June 1, 1900, was $15,686, of which $2,196 was in- vested m livestock, $690 in imple- ments and machinery and $12,800 rep- resented the value of buildings and other improvements. Buildings have bees erected on nine of the twelve farms in the territory. Preparing the soil for cultivation has been the chief item of expense in opening farms, be- ing in some instances $1~0 per acre. The twelve farms have a legal acreage' of 159 acres, and vegetables axe the principal product. Word has been received from Wash- ington that the Department of the In- terior has decided to make no more for- e~t reserves until Cpngress meets and revises,the law. A few months ago the National Live Stock Association called fhe attention of the department to the fact that certain people were taking ad- vantage of the ignorance of officials to have worthless lands set aside as forest reserves and then relinquish them to the government for lieu script, with which they could take up valuable ag- ricultural and grazing lands. The go~- .ernment, having investigated, has come to the conclusion that it is time to call a halt. So flagrant have been the at- tempts to obtain something for nothing that Secretary Hitghcock has determin. ed to recommend the establishment of no more forest reserves until Congress has had an opportunity to amend the law in regard to the exchange of land& For some time-past the officials of the Treasury Department have had un- der serious consideration the problem of how to prevent Chinese from cross. ing the Mexlca~ border into++the United States. A. conclusion has at last been reached, which it is believed will go a long ways to the solution of the mat- ter. Under the treaty between the United States and Ohin~ immigrants from the latter country are allowed to ~pass through the United States to any other foreign country, provided, how- ever, that the treasury officials are sat- Isfied their passage ~ugh this coun- try is for the bona fide purpose of tak- t~g up a residen~e in another and not for the purpose of ultimately attempt- ing to return to the United States. During the last few years many thou- sands of Chinese have bee~ landed at the port of San Francisco, under al- leged comract to work on plantations and railroads in southern Mexlco. If the Chinaman is under contract to per- form labor in Mexico he may present his contract as evidence of good faith but in ease of his failure to satisfy the officials he will not he permltted to land. It is expected this order will have the desired effeCt of keeping out a large percentage of Chinese who will go to Mexico with the real purpose of ultimately crossing the border Into the United States. Commissioner Yerkes, of the intei'nal revenue bureau, says regarding the re- turn to bankers of imprinted eheek~ and drafts requested that the internal revenue bureau cancel each cheek In such a manner as to render its further use possible, and then'return the sam. to its original owner.

The re- ports are without foundation. E.T. ;Ieffery, pregide~t of the Denver & Rio Grande, in his annual report for last year. made certain recommendations relative to standard gauging narrow gauge lines, which have been followed, and in the last year considerable work has progressed. Mr. Jeffery's remarks on the subject of standard gauging follow: "It may be well to state that Alamosa is the central point of the narrow gauge system in the San Luis v~lley. From thence amain line extends 200 miles to Durango, with a branch 124 tulles long from Antonito to Santa Fe. A narrow gauge branch runs +from A1- amosa to Creeds. a distance of seventy miles, and another branch runs north from Alamosa seventy-five miles to a connection with the main line of the third division at a point about ten miles west of Sallda. The San Lnis valley is increasing in population and farm products, and tVmay be desirable to extend the standard gauge from Al- amosa to Creede, and also south Swea- ty-nine miles to Antonito and perhaps north fifty-five miles to Villa Grove. This improvement will, if made, cost but little more than would be expended when heavy second-hand rails are. laid in place of the light rails now lh use on these narrow gauge lines." This work, as st~gested, is now lu progress and a considerable paxt of it 1$ already finished. Mr. Jeffery said yesterday that no further standard gauging of narrow gauge lines was contemplated for the present.

Most of the data will be embodied in his annual reImrt, and the statement is prepared for the use of the national encampment of the Grand Army of the Republic, which will be held before the report is ready. It shows that the number of pension- ere on the rolls June 30th last was 997,735, a net gain of 4.206 over last year. The total loss to the roll during the year was 43,586, which includes 38,153 by death, 853 by remarriage, 1,- 582 by minors reaching the age of six- teen; 1,538 by failure to claim pensions and 1,460 from other causes. A cam- parative table shows that the roll for the year Just Closed is the "high ~a- tar mark" in rhe history of the pension bureau, the next highest having been reached in 1898. Of the gains to the rolls during the year 3,894 were from the war with Spain. The losses includ- ed two from the Revolution; 215 from the war of 1812; 826 from the war with Mexico, and 544 from the Indian wars. The gains to the roll since 1898 were 13,334 widows of the Civil War, and 5.604 from the Spanish war, total 18,938. The net gain m the rolls in the four years was 4,01.2 Pensions granted to widows under the act of June 27, 1890, during the year numbered 16,610, or nearly 4.500 in excess of those granted the previous year. The pensioners on the rolls are classi- fied as follows: Survivors, 8,655: invalids, 739,994; widows, 249,(}86. These comprise 13,- 15~ widows und the 8,655 survivors on account of old wars prior to 1861; 297,- 675 invalids and 88.802 on account of general laws, disabilit~ of service ori- gin, mostly Civil War; 438,114 invalids and 145,111 widows on account of the June, 1890, law, and Civil War disa- bility not due to 9erviee; 650 army n~ and 3,555 invalids and 2,049 widows on account of the war with Spain. The coral.amount paid to pensioners us first payments on the allowance of their claims during 1901. was $9,934,- 764, or $106,238 more than the first payments during 1900. This amount represents the arrears of pensions, ag- gregating 675 claims allowed, to an av- erage of nearly $1,500 each. The fees paid to attorneys amounted to $591,2~5, an increase of almost $74.- 004) due to the Spanish War. At lea'st 100,000 of the examninations held dur- ing the year resulted unfavorably to the claimants. The amounz paid to pensioners under the general law dur- ing the year was $67,867.233. a de- crease of $1,790.253 from the amount pa~d las~ year. It is believed that dur- ing the fiscal year of 1902 the pay- ments under the general law will be exceeded by those of pensioners under ~he act of 1890. The Spanish War pen- signers received 1.175.225, an increase over last year of $842,320, and the pen- sioners under the act of 1890 as amended May 6. 18~.~). received $60,- 973.481. an increase over last year of $1,207.402. During the last thirty years the sur- vivors of 1812 and their widows have received $44,841.648: Mexican War, $g0,201,187, and Indian wars, $5,402,- 054. There were 45.860 claimants for pen- sions during the year. The pension roqs still contain rhe names of one su~lvor and 1,627 widows on account of the war of 1812; 1.086 survivors and 3,479 widows on accoun of Indian wars, and 7.568 survivors and 8.109 widows on account of the Mexican War. The bureau issued 109.668 cer- tificates of all classes during the year, 44,225 being for original pension. The number of claims pending July 1st last was 4~,569. The statement gives the following amounts of money paid pensioners un- der different administrations: President Grant's first term. $116.- 136.275. Average per year $29,034,069. President Grant's second term, $114.- 395,357. Average per year, $28,598,839. Pl-estdent Hayes' administration $145,322,489. Average per year, $38,- 330,622. President Garfield's administration $23%825,670. Average per year, $59,- 456,268, President Cievelands first term, $305,636,662. Average per yealT, $76,- 44)9,165.

During a conference with Acting Secretary Haekett to-day Messrs. Raynor and Wilson, counsel for Admtral Schley, advised him that a communication ~'ould be sent him this afternoon rela- tive to certain statements reported to have been made by Rear Admiral Howison, a member of the court of ~t~y, in regard to the Schley-Samp- son controversy. ~he letter to Secretary Hackett will inclose copies of interviews purporting to have come from Admiral HoWison, stating among other things that the t~tttle of Santiago was won by S~mp- son; that the latter's presence was un- necessary at that fight; that Schley de- served no~ credit for the victory, and that betwben the two officers Sam~- ion is the better one. Mr. Hackett is requested to forward tttm eo~nmuuication to Admiral lq[owl- so~ f0r Ills consideration and a copy of that officer's reply to th~ depart. meat is asked for. , ~he+Navy Department has decided that the Schley court of inquiry shall be held In the gunners' workshop at the navy yard, which is well adapted to the requirements of the court. Counsel for Rear Admiral Schley to- day made inquiries regarding the de- partment's list of witnesses. They were informed that the depaxtment had no prepared list: that the prepara- tion of this list is in the hands of Cap- tain Leery, Judge advocate of the court, who is now in Canadm and who is expected to return to Washington next Monday. While the request of the counsel of Admiral Schley. for a ~ist of wl~ses will be submitted to 5~udge Advocate Lemly as ~ matter of form, it has al- ready been determined at the deCca#to meat that the request w~lll be complied with and the list will ,be furnished t~ Adtniral Schley's attorneys. Possibly this will not be done until after the re- turn of Captal~ LeVy to Washington. Lieutenant P. W. Wells, flag secre- tary to Admiral Schley during the West Ipdian campaign, has been de- tached]from the Kearsarge and or. dered to Washington to assist Admiral Schley in the preparation of his case. This was done on the request of the admiral, who said he desired the as. sistance of Lieutenant Wells because of his familiarity with the correspond- ence during the time he (Schley) was in command Of the flying squadron. ~lth tha result that tho~e pea~mna who ~ra amploye/t in the occui~Uo~m that ~vo phFalcal ~ort on the part of the ~blic are worked harder than ever. Public attention has been centered of late upon the Chinese In their own eountry;+but the position of Chin~e ia ~e Unlt~l States now demands eoa- derailed. The act of 188~ stmpend~l 2m immigration of Chin~e laborem hyr ten years, and the act of Ig~$ continued the exclusion for ten years more. This paint of the law, will expire by limita- tion next year. A bill will be lntroduc~ in the next Congrem to extend its pro- v1~doas for another period of twenty years. On the other hand, an effort will be made to repeal the act. Thus the whole question of the treatment o4[ ~hl~e immigration will be reopened. / m the smaller places in England horse~ have to be borrowed for the ~m en~tmm.

In 1899 these amounted to $2,298,033, which was almost double the ship- meats of the preceding year.

Six or ~'en months ago there was presented to a number of prominent citizens of the eedatral tmrt of the eta e a'~petition to the secretkry of the in- terior praying him to bring, about in Congress legislation for segregating as oil-bebrlng lands, ~nder the Oil pmcer location act, certain Oil lanas 4ocated in what Is kndwn as the Bait Gree~ oil belt, located for the greater pa~ in Natroda county, Wyoming. The rea- son why the land should be segregated, given in the petition, was that the PennsYlvania Oil and G~ts" Company and ethers have expended a large omelet of capital for the development of the fields, and that the land in ques- tion, while oil bearing, would not be developed if allowed to remain in the government domain, but if segregated the company and persons in question would Immediately develop it with the capital which they have back of them, and it will become a source of great in- come and a great industry. The pe- tition i~ said to have' been signed by many of the most influential men in the state, ineluding Governor DeForest Rtchards and A. J. Cunuingham, the prominent banker of Casper. The ,petition "was taken by M. P. Shannon of Carlisle, Pennsylvania~ secretary of the Pennsylvania Oil and Gas Company, to a number of con- gressmen from eastern states and made the basis of a request for the secretary of the interior to influence in Congress the segregation of 447.000 acres of oil lands in the Salt Creek belt. and 550,- 000 acres of lands located in the ad- Joining county.

Judge Mulllns sent a letter to Judge I Carpenter which was also read to the members of the Ba~ Assbciation, who had crowded into the court room, in which he assured the presiding Judge that if the developments of the inquiry show the charges of attentpted bribery to have any foundation in fact, he will call for a grand jury.
