The announcement has already hcen made of
the abandonment of the plan for organizing a
fast steamship line of Aniericau-lmilt vessels to
ply between this country and Great Britain,
-which excited so much attention -when first
made public about a year ago. The intention
was to have vessels start from Fort Pond Bay,
at the easterly cud of Long Island, and go to
31iIford Haven. Passengers were to be con
veyed in swift express trains from New York to
Fort Pond Bay, and from MiJford Haven to
London -was to occupy less than six days. It is
stated, however, that the route which the
American Express Lino was to have used, from
Fort Bond Bay to Milford Haven, is to be
utilized by the recently organized British and
American Express Steamship Company, lim
ited, whose cssels are at present building on
the Clyde. The British and American Steam
ship Company is composed of American and
English capitalists. Its capital stock is 2,000,
000. The company proposes to carry passen
gers between New' York and London in six
days by vessel and rail. The principal differ
ence between the British and Aincricau Lino
and the abandoned American Express Line is
that the former will sail English ships and will
carry steerage passengers and freight as other
lines are now doing. The gain in sailing dis
tance by the new routo is about 170 miles at
the other end, avoiding the inclosed watersand
currents of St. Georce's channel : and US miles
at this end, avoiding the dangerous coasts of
of Long Island and New Jersey.
The failure is announced of Herbert C. Aycr,
(John V. Aycr's Sons,) of Chicago, -with liabil
ities of nearly $2,000,000. Herbert C. Aver is
a heavy stockholder in the incorporated com
pany known as Brown, Bonnell & Co., of
Youugstown, Ohio, manufacturers of merchant
iron and pig iron and operators in coal. This
coinpanyoperatesthclargcstrollingmills in the
Mahoning valley, and has here the largest sheet
mill in the United States. The capital stock
of Brown, Bonnell & Co. is $1,500,000, Herbert
C. Ayer owning $900,000. Mr. Ayer is presi
dent of the corporation. In their several roll
ing mills, "blast furnaces, and coal banks they
employ 3,000 men. Besides their rolling mills
and furnaces at Youngstown they operate the
Strainer's furnace at Struthers Station, three
miles from that city; the Leadville coal bank,
near the city, and the Mahoning coal bank in
Trumbull county. The banking institutions
of Youngstowa do not lose heavily by the fail
ure, as nearly all of the company's paper was
discounted in the larger cities. Leading capi
talists assert that the tinkering with' the tariff
was the prime cause of jhe failure.
Paget Sound is considered one of most re
markable bodies of water in the world. It is
surrounded by continuous forests that rea.ch
back to the summits of the Cascade aud Olympic
ranges. The streams that conic: down from the
mountains on every side have fertile valleys;
Eome of thro are already occupied and well
cultivated. Pnyallup and White Hirers and
their affluents are well settled, but there is an
abundant room for settiers on the Snoqualraie,
Snohomish, Squat, Skagit, and Xootsack, as
well as on a valley in "Whatcom county, where
Traser's Biver once flowed. It was once be
lieved that the land around the sound was
worthless, and that its forests stood on rock
without eoiI ; bat time has demonstrated that
this is only true of a small extent of country
near the sound, and that all the upland between
the streams, and c-T&nding to the mountains is
rich, deep soil 5 will produce anything that

llr. Leonard HodgSs, who superintended the
tree planting along tn.St. Paul and Manitoba
road, and is also to hre charge of the same
work on the Northern v22acific, advises the
planting of two parallel Leltb-of young timber
on the northern tide of the tracs and one belt
on the southern side. The wluto willow ho
has found to be the cheapest and liiydicst tree
for the purpose. A fence of this wuljv will
grow to an average height of twelve feet in four
ydbrsfrom the time of planting tho cuttings.
The soil, however, has to be prepared for plant
ing by harrowing, and sometimes the prairie
Eoil is so had that two or three years must be
spent in preparing it, but the result is thought
to be worth the labor. Other hardy trees rec
ommended for the purpose above "mentioned
are the box elder, the cottonwood, and the

joint resolution, modeled after tho resolution
of June, 1S74, which admitted free of duty
goods intended for the centennial exhibition,
has just been passed by Congress. AVjth this
encouragement before them, tho managers of
the institute feel confident that the necessary
money to assure the success of the undertaking
can be raised.
The cost of American railroads, according to
the census report, is over four thousand mil
lions, or an average of $47,000 a mile. Their
gross earnings in 1SS0 were $5S0,15O,594, and
the net $119,344,597, or less than 3 per cent, on
their cost. Their dividends amounted to a
little more than seventy millions, or about 2
per cent on the capital. Tho average number
of passengers to a train was forty-five, and the
number of men employed by all the railroads
in tho country was 415,957.
A formal application for the termination of

Replies to Questions on a Variety of Interesting
L. G. It., Hampton, Conn. It is difficult to decide.
Our opinion is that you would be entitled to a rat
ing, even if thclonnl reported adversely. It would
depend upon the character of the testimony and
other facts. Wait until the result is known. The
fact that you stated your occupation to be the one
mentioned will make no difference in regard to rat
ing; as it has nothing to do with regard to your dis
ability. The rating in a claim arc supposed to be
based upon an analysis of the testimony filed, to
gether with the description of the disability as
given by the examining surgeon.
B. F., Union Bridge, 3Id. You were probably en
titled to S100 additional bounty, but, as you failed
to file your claim therefor prior to July 1. 1SS0, you
cannot now recover, as such claims are barred by
E. JT., Green Forest, Ark. Such of the Missouri
State militia as were mustered in the U. S. service
arc entitled to pension the same as other volun
teers. Otherwise their claims are barred by statute.
IT. K. C, .Voiiroc, La. The gentleman you refer
to is Hon. O. P. G. Clarke, First Deputy Commis
sioner of Pensions. lie has been in the oftlce for
P. B.,Mcndon, Mo. The reason that some claims
have been allowed that were filed since you filed
your claim, which is still pending, is that they were
probably easier to establish than yours and the
claimants filed the necessary testimony to com
plete the same. There are claims still pending in
the Pension Oftlce that were filed more than twenty
years ago, and cannot bo settled simply because
the claimants do not furnish satisfactory proof to
establish them. The claimant, or his attorney, is
notified of any action taken in a. claim. The
papers are not "thrown aside." He cannot ex
amine the papers, but is notified by letter of what is
necessary to complete the claim.
B. X. S., Quincy. Mich. It would have no bearing
whatever upon his pension claim, unless the" 3is
chargc was based upon some act of the officer,
which would render the pension claim a fraud by
virtue of the record in the case. The words "for
thei good of the service" may mean nothing more
than the words themselves, or they may mean
much that is derogatory to the party interested.
With no further facts before us than stated in your
letter, we can reply only in general terms as above.

Subscriber, Fast Killingly, Conn. Your pension
was rated in accordance with custom of Pension
Office, as it is held, in progressive disease?, such as
yours, that you are now more disabled than you
were in 18C4 and years following; thcrefore, if
claim was allowed at $8 per month the rating prior
to tli&t time at SG was based upon the history of tho
case, bhowing a lesser disability for tle years prior
to time when S8 rate commenced. This is the man
ner of rating all arrears cases where disability is
held to be progressive in its nature. The arrears in
your claim were very liberal, compared with other
cases that we know of.
Soldier's Wife, Traverse City, Mich. 1st. Any honorably-discharged
soldier now disabled by causes
incident to service can enter the Soldiers' Home.

14, 1777, established a national flag, consisting of 13
stripes, alternate white and red, with a union of 13
stars in a blue field. This is the first recorded leg
islative action upon the subject. Prior to tliat
time, in 1874 or 1875, a banner was presented ton
Philadelphia troop of light-horse, and was com
posed of the same arrangement of 13 stripes, with
a union of blended crosses of St. George and St.
Andrew. This was probably the birth of our pres
ent flag. In 1818 Congress changed the union of
the flag so that a star was added for every new
State. 2d. The amount of money in the United

FOREIGN BORN SOLDIERS.
Congressman Deustcr's Bill to Naturalize Their
It has been very generally believed that serv
ice in and honorable discharge from the Union
armies in tho late war made a foreign born man
a citizen without further action. The law,
however, provides only that such a man shall
be at once admitted to citizenship by a proper
court on his application and without the exac
tion of a preliminary declaration of iutentions
or wailing for the five years' term. Congress
man P. V. Deuster, of Wisconsin, himself a
German by birth, says that the erroneous idea
has prevailed very laregly in tho West among
foreign born soldiers in our late war thafuo
formal naturalization was required. He adds:
The naturalization of the father does not operate
to naturalize his son unless the father is naturalized
before the son becomes of age. Thousands of for
eign born soldiers, believing their discharge made
them citizens, have neglected to be naturalized
during the minority of their sons, and, as a conse
quence, all those children arc, under the present
law, as much aliens as if they had onlyarrived
To remedy this Mr. Deuster on Monday in
troduced a bill to amend section 2,172 of the
Eevised Statutes, as follows:.
Children of persons who havo enlisted or may
enlist in the services of the United States, cither in
tho regular or the volunteer forces, and have been or
may be hereafter honorably discharged therefrom,
or who die while in said armies of the United
States, shall, if dwelling in the United States, be
considered citizens thereof.
Mr. Deuster says tho amendment simply
makes children citizens tho same as they would
be if their fathers had not been thus ignorant
of the law requiring them to bo naturalized,
notwithstanding their discharge. Many un
naturalized soldiers died in tho service, and
their foreign born children aro still aliens if
they have not gone to tho court to bo natural
ized. The death of the father in tho army
ought to have made them citizens.
Electric Lights Forming Part of a Ball Dress.
From the St. James's Gazette.'
A further experiment has been made in the
wearing of incandescent electric lamps upon
the person. A lady appeared a few days ago
with incandescent lamps arranged about her at
a fancy-dress ball at Hull. As wo stated some
time ago with reference to the Savoy Theatre,
it is quite impossible for a battery or accumu
lator to be concealed in tho dress; and on this
occasion tho electricity was supplied from a bi
chromate battery concealed in the case of a
hand organ, which was carried about by a gen
tleman in attendance upon tho lady exhibitor.
Wires running from tho hand organ supplied
the current to the lamps.
Another PcnnsjlTauia Soldiers' Monument.
Tho soldiers' monument "now being erected at
Germantown, Pa., will bo unveiled on tho 4th
of July next. The shaft, up to tho block on
which the figure of a soldier stands at rest, is
of Quincy granite. On this is a block of stono
taken out of the battle-field of Gettysburg.
This in turn supports the statue, which is nine
feet six inches in height; total height of
monument thirty feet six inches. Tho base
above tho lower steps will be thirteen feet
square. On one front will appear the G. A. B.
badge, and tho other fronts tho coats-of-anus
of tho United Status, State of Pennsylvania,
and city of PhiIadoljhiat while at each corner
will be placed a ten-inch old pattern seacoast

each corner. The whole work will cost about
$10,000, the wholcof which has beensubscribed.
The artist is John Lacmier, and the contractor
Thomas Delahnnty. On the occasion of tho

of the Grand Army, military and civic socie

THE STOCK MARKET.
RctIcw of the Week in Wall Street and Closing
Special to Tho National Tribune.
Xkw York, Feb. 20. Tho volume of busi
ness to-day was much smaller than yesterday.
Tho range of prices, however, was little belter;
but the rise was entirely owing to the covering
of shorts, two largo operators being reported as
largo buyers. The main position remains un
changed. Outside business nothing, and with
no likelihood of an improvement under exist

To all Omccns and
Soldiers who LOST
HORSES or EQUIPMENTS during the late war.
Congress has Just passed the Bill extending the time
for filing claims for Horses and Equipments lost by offi
cers and enlisted men in the military service of the
United States for One Year only, and all claims of
this class which are not filed in the proper Department
on or before January 9, 1834, will be forever barred,
and cannot be received, considered, or audited by any
Department of the Government. Without doubt, no
further extension of time will be allowed in which to
present these claims, thousands of which, honest, due,
and unpaid, arc still outstanding, and have never been
prepared orsubmltted. Immediate action on the part of
those Interested is Imperative If they desire to recover.
GEORGE E. LEMON,
G13 rifteenth Street, Washington, D. C.
CAN I OBTAIN A PATENT?
Send a rouch sketch or ( if vnu can) a model of your
invention to GEORGE E. LEMOX, Washington,
D. C, and a Preliminary Examination will be
made of all United States Patents of the same class of
inventions, and you will be advised whether or not a
Patent can be obtained.
FOR THIS PRELI3IIVARY EXAMINATION
NO CHARGE IS MADE.
What will a Patent Cost?
If you are advised that your invention Is patentable,
send 20 to pay Government application fee of S13. and
5 for the drawings required by the Government. 'This
is payable when application is made, and is all of the
expense unless a Patent Is allowed. "When allowed, the
attorney's fee (S2f) and the final Government fee (S-0)
is payable. Thus you know beforehand, for nothing,
whether you are going to get a Patent or not. and no at
torney's fee is charged unless you do get a Patent. An
attorney whose fee depends on his success in obtaining a
Patent will not advise you that your invent ion is patent
able unless t really is pateptnble, so far as his best judg
ment can aid in determining the question; hence, you
can rely on the advice given after a preliminary exami
nation is had. Dcmsii Patents and the Registration
of Labels, Trade-Marks and Rc-issucs secured.
Caveats prepared and filed. Applications in revivor of
Rejected, Abandoned, or Porfcitcd Cases made.
Very often valuable Inventions are saved in these classes
of cases. If you have undertaken to secure your own
J latent and failed, a skillful handling of the case may
ead to success. Send me a written request, addressed to
the Commissioner of Patents, that he recognize George
E. Lemon of "Washington, D. C, as your attorney in the
case, giving the title of the Invention and about the date
of filing your application. An examination and report
will cost you nothing. Searches made for title to Inven
tions; in fact, any information relating to Patents
promptly furnished. Copies of Patents mailed, at the
regular Government rates (23c. each). P.emcmber,thl3
otnee has been In successful operation since 1SC3, and you
therefore reap the benefits of experience; besides, refer
ence can be given to actual clients in almost ev ery county

A RARE OFFER !
Hitherto a low-priced watch has been the very poorest
of investments ; being of no value as a time-keeper, and
a constant source of expense and annoyance to its owner.
The WATERBURY WATCH will be found a
marvel of simplicity, accuracy, and cheapness.
SLAIPLE, because It is composed of less than one-half
the usual number of parts in a watch, which are SO
arranged as to be easily cleaned or repaired.
ACCURATE, because It will run twenty-four hours,
and keep time equal to the better grades of watches.
CHEAP, because it will wear for years, and Is offered
at a price within the reach of everybody.
FOR $3.75 WE WILL SEND
THE WATEEBURT "WATCH
THE NATIONAL TRIBUNE
FOR ONE YEAR
TO ANY ADDRESS.
