depth of about lxtcon feet from Ihe
Thu nugget is fourteen Inches Iu
Irngth, six Inches In wfilth and three
Inches In thickness, nnd Is tho second
largest nugget ever found. It beats
anything ever found in California.
The largest piece or gold was found in
Auslrnlln. Thia place is at present full
of old miners from the West, among
them being several old forty-niners,
and the news from tho Saunders initio
has caused great Interest otiiong them.
Sevcnil ol' them nro preparing to make

considerable excitement among the
people along the Piedmont raugo. and
ihe news soon extended to Texas,
wheic Saunders had a brother named

felt that some day gold might bo dis

Tho prospects for a railroad from
Georgetown to Gettysburg nnd Fred
crick, Mil,, which n short time ngo wcro
budding and promising soon to bloom,
havo been nipped by an early frost of
conlilctlug Interests, and now seem on
the point of withering. A summary of
tho situation is about as follows:
Colonel J. C. Fuller, president or tho
Harrishtirg and Gettysburg Railroad, Is
anxious to enter Georgetown via Fred
crick, nnd the citizens of these two
towns nud of the adjacent country are
equally anxious to have the road come.
The most desirable route into the Dls.
trict of Columbia isoloiut the canal bank.
A local company owns Hie right
of wny along tills route, under
n charter granted by Congress. Thov
nro aware of thu value of tho charter,
and also appreciate Colonel Fuller's do
Mro to use the right of way under the
charier. Right here is whetetlio rub
comes. There arc two stories or the
tllttation. Ilotli are given below. The
local company claims that Colonel
Fuller wants tho right of wav for vir
tually nothing; that his demands arc
almost equivalent to asking them to
givo him the charier and build his road.
On thu other hand Colonel Fuller's
friends say the local company is play
ing the dog-lnlhc-niangcr net; Hint
they do not intend to build a road and
won't sell reasonably to any one else.
One of the largest stockholders in tho
It cal company, a Washington man, is
charged with snying, "Wo don't cire
anything for Georgetown; her interests
mo nothing to us. If nnvbndy wants
cur charter let Ihcminako'si bill for it."

Tho Detective Ofllco is in constant

they havo been swindled by commission

Ihero is no law in the District under

Tin: Clinic innn then asked Mr.

the bottom of the opposition and was
really dcsliotts of keeping the World's
Fair out ol' Now York in 1802.
"I do not think Mr. Piatt ii opposed
to the bill. Ho is on our Legislative

liberal sum to the lair Tund. Ami,"
