WHlere the West Is.
(hcleago ti no longer a Western, but
is an Eastern city. it is only 900 miles
to tihe Atlantic coast, while it is 2.350
troUt to tht Pacific coast. Dividing the
Union Into East. C(entre and West, each
division Is about 1,100 wiles wide. The
Etassen Division will embrace all the
5Batror . lying east f tahe Miaissiipit
Rimer; tkhe Cot, ral. all the States and
Territories between the Missisaippi and
the Rocky Mouutantil; and the WesVt
emrn, ill the States and Territori*.s bl
tV.-ren the Rxacy MoUntains and the
Pacifc enact. Somewhat the largest of
these three great divisions is the Cen.
tral. And, astonishing as it may appear
to those who have not ezamined the
map carefally, the territory lying west
of the Rocky Mountains contains as
many square miles as the territory east
of the Mtssippi River, notwithstanding
thiscomprises eleven Southern all of thN
the o leslled "Eastern" and "Central'
States, and all of the old "Northwest."
The completion of the Pacific Ral way has
changed the former \Vest into East and
Central, and moved the West 1.200 rmi:r*
toward the setting sun. The actual
West consists of California, Or'-on,.
Washington. Nevada. Arizona, Utah,
Montana, Wyoming. and the major pr
tion of Colorado and New Mexico. It is
hard to realize the truth that Chicago is
an Eastern city, and that Illinois in ct::
even a Central, but is an Eastern State
Omaha, which has always been regar.led
as on the western verge of the "Far
West," is, in fact. 1.50 miles tst of the

that enterprising little place resent the
imputation of being in the Far Wes.t.
In short, this is a tolerably long " -he

Dominion is "absorbed," the distauce
will be equally as great from north to

To the Editor of the N. Y. Tribune :
SIR : The Wilson trial came to an ena
yesterday. In some respects this was
the most remarkable case that has ever
had a place upon the criminal records
of the country. It excited great inter
est in this part of the State, and during
the last ten days the court room has
been pretty generally crowded with
eager listeners. The facts of the Wil
son case were simply these: On the
17th of February last. (George L. Ro.lr
ick provoked a quarrel with Dr. K. WVil
son, in front of the Union Hotel in this
place. Wilson put up with a good deal
of abuse before he even showed temper
HIe even tried to pacify IRoderick, but to
no purpose. Roderick called him a
thief. a liar, a swindler: yet Wilson bore
it all calmly. Roderick grew more ex
cited, and heaped one opprobrious ,.pi,
thet Lfter another upon Wilson, and tin
ally called him a member of the New
York Legislature. At th:e Wilson sprang
to his feet. and remarking to Roderick
that be would not take, that from any
man, shot him dead witii an ax-handle.
Such was the evidence elicited up,n the
trial- The court acquitted Wilson up.
