FINANCE COMMITTEE REPORT.
The Legislative Committee ou
Finance have at length made their
full report to the Legislature. It is
a document of 22 printed pages.
This result is undoubtedly the pro
duct of a large amount of patient
work, by which work the committee
have earned the thanks of the coun
try. The report censures home
things mostly belonging to the past
and commends some things--mainly
appertaining to the present.
This may be regarded as batisfac
tory, as showing the improvement
effected ; but probably some "mal
contents" will still think that the
past could have been made to appear
in a brighter light, and that darker
shades could have been thrown upon
the present. The committee's report
wisely differs from the Finance Min
ister's report in the iay of accounting
for the amount realized from the Pos
tal Savings Bank. The Minister
improperly enters it as a "revenue,"
whereas the committee properly re
gards it as a "public debt."
There is one feature of the report
which might have been omitted with
out detracting from its clearness or
its completeness. Lists of figures
are reproduced fiom the printed
Ministerial reports, for no other ap
parent reason than to testify at the
foot that they were found to be cor
rect or otherwise, as the case might
be. This is one way of making a
lengthy report, and furnishing mat
ter to the printer, but what other
purpose is served is not easy to dis
cover. The committee were not re
quired nor expected to reproduce
the accounts of the various depart
ments of Government, but to ex
amine them and ascertain if they
were correct, and report the result.
FINDS AN APPROPRIATE
A good many years ago, shortly
after the assassination of President
Lincoln, the writer remembers to
have been present at the oponing
ceremonies of a public hall, in tho
capital city of a British colony.
Among the toasts was that of "Pre
sident Johnson, President of the
United Slates of America." This
toast was responded to by Itev. W.
Taylor, one of the pioneer preachers
of California after the gold discovery,
and a preacher and writer of wido
reputation. Mr. Taylor remarked
in the course of his very humoious
speech; "As an American, born of
American parents, and brought up
in America, I assure you, gentlemen,
that the American people arc truly
friendly to Great Britain. I have
traveled through nearly every State
of the Union, and I have heard none
but kind words of tho country from
which wo sprang, except from a few
rabid extremists, who try to show
their extraordinary loyalty to Amer
ica by talking against England."
Tho concluding sentence of tho
foregoing, with a little variation,
finds an appropriate application
in this country. Thus: "Sonioner-
sons try to show llio extraordinary
purity, excellence, ami faultlcssncss
of the 'reform movement,' by per
petually docryiug nnd abusing every
body and everything which preceded
it." Legislative speeches, reports
of Legislative committees, nnd news
paper articles teem with iuuendoes
of the utter badness of the old state
of things, in order to impi ess upon the
community the lllawless perfection
of everything daunted before peo
ple's eyes under the imine of "re
form." The thoughtless may toss their
hats into the air, and shout them
selves hoarse at the sound of this
shallow political clap-trap; but
thinking people shrug their shoul
ders, and refuse to be convinced by
such empty balderdash. The old
stale of things was, in truth, bad
enough, too bad ; but it was not all
bad. The new order is better, de
cidedly better in various respects ;
but it is not all better. Nor is it
improved by these injudicious tactics
of those light-weight politicians.
Gentlemen, suffer a simple word
of advice from an obscure looker-on
in this city of lUinkumporc. In
stead of vainly attempting to show
the extraordinary goodness of every
thing that is, by reviling as extra
ordinarily bad everything that was,
just look at things as they arc
squarely in the face, aud where you
find by coinmon-scnse observation
that they are crooked, honestly en
deavor to straighten them. Never
mind the past. You cannot chaugc
it. Whether bad or good, it is bad
or good foievcr. Your perpetual
aud derisive allusions to it engender
bad blond, without any compensat
ing good. Look to the present and
the future. You can affect these.
Search out flaws, for the purpose of
mending thcin. Don't try to cover
up deformities, and pretend they do
not exist. The more you cover
them, the greater and the quicker
they will grow, the cover serving the
purpose of a hothouse. Talk a little
less reform, and honestly endeavor
to produce a little more of the real

Chicago, July 17 The city is in
the throes of a terrible sensation to
d:i3'. It affects all classes, and is
the one general topic of discussion.
A gigantic murderous plot on the
paitof Chicago Anarchists to blow
up the great Board of Trade build
ing and several other of our laigest
and most imposing structures, and
murder Judge Grinucll, Judge Gar
rick, Inspector Bonfield and othei
prominent persons engaged in the
prosecution during the celebrated
trial of the Anarchists, was blasted
to-day by Inspector Bonfield, Chief
Hubbard. Lieutenant Elliott and
Daggett, Cal., July 171:30 p.
m. The town of Calico is burning.
The business poition is gone and a
heavy wind is carrying the llames to
dwellings. This is the second fire
within a year.
Chicago, Jul- 18. The names of
the Anarchists arrested yesterday
are John Kroncck, Frank Chapck
and Frank Chebowa, all Bohemians.
The first-named i3 a cabinet-maker
by trade, who lives on Farre! street.
Chebowa is a tailor, nnd is the in
former who told the story of the
plot to a Bohemian, who in turn do
tailed it to Inspector Bonllcld about
ten days ago. It seems that since
execution pt the Anarchists a move
ment was started among their fol
lowers to do business at the old
stands. It was concluded that each
group as reorganized was to have no
mote than three members, with each
of the three members well acquaint
ed with the others who composed
the groups. When formed it wus
thought that "squealing" in the
ranks would Income a lost art.
The thrce'inen arrested to-day
constituted a group, and in the
bauds of these men was loft the
pleasant occupation of blowing up
residences until tho act of last No
vember was considered fully wiped
out in blood. It was agreed that
Grinuell's house should go up first
and Judge Gray's next. Inspector
Bonfield was the third man doomed
to die, but just how had not been
fully decided upon. Chebowa be
came frightened, however, and
Inspector Bonfield said last night
that it was a mistake to suppose that
tho arrest implied a widespread or
ganization, or that public buildings
were to be blown up and a reign of
terror inaugurated, "There arc less
than a dozen persons interested. It
is a sort of sporadic outbreak, and
nn illnmturcd plan by a few persons,
and far from contemplating a reign
of torror and bloodshed. It meant
merely mischief to three people,
Judge Gray, Judge Grinucll and

Sunday night a tornado struck
Bcnkleman, doing great damage.
The fine new United Presbyterian
Church and twenty small frame
buildings were blown down. A
cloud burst accompanied the wind,
Hooding the business quarters.
Every cellcr in the town is full of
water, and a large amount of mer
chandise is destroyed. In some
sections the hail destroyed every
thing completely. Several horses

terrible waterspout struck this city
this afternoon, upsetting boats in the
harbor, wrecking several buildings
and creating general alarm. It was
first observed near North Beach,
and in thirty minutes it was on the
town. Those who saw it rushing
toward the city say it was grandly
tenilic. People in its path lied
wildly in u panic. A score of ladies
erc thrown down and injured.
After crossing the bay it lifted up
the steamer Garden and carried her
over the seawall. After wrecking
several small buildings it passed off
