Scotland Yard for having been pro

Hammond, and letters to Hammond
have been sentin her care. Hammond
has been avoiding all but his friends
here, but to them he has shown a
wealth of diainonds and jewelry in his
possession. Hammond was at last
found in his hotel, and with him a
thick-set, French woman, claiming to
be his wife, and two boys, 11 and 16
years 01 age. Hammond claims one
as his son, but says the other is the
son of a man living in London, but
refuses to give his name. When Ham

The Railway Age says: '"It is now
proposed to build a railway to the
summit af the Jungffau, the magnifi
cent peak of the -Alps in the heart of
Switzerland, whose snowy head has
stood inaccessible. The engineer who
built the railway over the Brunig
Pass proposes the bold scheme of
reaching tlie top of Jungfrau by
means of a tubular tunnel, pu.-hed en
tirely under ground, and so avoiding
the dangers of avalanches and the dif
liculties of impassable gorges, and he
estimates the cost of the scheme at
only a little over Sl.000.000. It. is not
difficult to believe, now-that the awful
brow of Mount Pilatus has been sea KM
by a railway, that even the snowy
Jungfrau may herself be conquered."

St. Ion is 11s :i Ulnlns Center.
A, miner who attended the National
Silver Convention, is quoted by the
jsjlfi'o Bullion as saying: St. Louis
possesses at this time more interest to
miners than any other city in the
country, from tlie fact that it is the
mining center of the United States.
As evidence of this position we will
cite the fact that during the past ,18
months 5-10 properties have been
placed in that city. The St. Louis
Mining Exchange is open each day,
and we are informed that its opera
tions are important and extending.
There are numerons- mine brokers in
the city and the usual quota of ex
perts, engineers, assayers and metal
lurgists, in tact mining is a very gen
eral topic of conversation in the hoteli
and elsewhere. No doubt the great
attention given to mining in St. Louis
is due to the Granite Mountain mine,
that to the date of its last dividend
November, 1889, has paid in dividends
$7,800,000. Then again it might be
claimed for St. Louis that it is a natu
ral mining center, for in the '30's.
when it was the supply point for the
entire west, it was mainly St. Louis
capital that operated the lead mines of
Galena, Dubuque, St. Genavive, etc.;
in after years the zinc and lead depos
its of Joplin, contributed to give St.
Louis importance, and to these we
ma3' add the exploitation of the Pilot
Knob and other iron deposits, also the
silica, fire-clay and extensive coal beds
in Missouri, Kansas and Illinois, all
more or less tributary to St. Louis and
source ef revenue to it.
Notwithstanding the denials that
have been made by Herr Krupp, the
famous German iron founder, it is said
on good authority that, his firm con
templates at an early day the estab
lishment of a briheh of his establish'
ment in America, and that sites in the
mining regions of Pennsylvania and
Virginia have been inspected, flerr
Krupp is anSioiis to establish an Ame
ncan gun foundry so as to be safe
from the dangers of a European war.
He fears that in case of an invasion of
German one -of the objective points
of the hostile army weald be (his gun
foundry, d.nd that it would he wiped
out of existence as completely as fire
and dvnamite could do it. With a
foundry, in the United States ho would
run no uch risk and would have ac
abundance of raw material easily ac-c-ssible.

Several ways are open for the re
duction of the surplus, which, accord
ing to official estimate, will be about
841.000,000 this year and the same
next j'ear. The removal of the tax on
tobacco and on spirits used in the arts
would cut oif all the surplus except
7,000.000. A reduction of about; 50
or GO per cent in the rate of duty on
sugar would sweep away the surplus
completely, while it can also be re
moved by a moderate general cut m
duties supplemented by tho placing
of some commodities not produced
here in large, quantities on the free
list. 'The abolition of the tobacco tax
would be easiest brought about, as
most of tho Republican Congressman
and at least a third of the Democrats
would favor it, but the .reduction ra

the Poi tugueso mariners who discov

the narrow gateway to the harbor and
saw the beautiful bay in the ampin
theater of mountains, surrounded bv
the eternal verdure, they thought they
were entering the mouth of a river
that wollld lead them to the enchant

mistake they were so disgusted that,
instead of naming the river after our

In the political feud between its
French .and English speaking resi
dents, Canada has a race problem on
its hands which threatens to be. more
perplexing and injurious to the dis
trict immediately affected than our
negro question is to, us. Annexatien,
of course, would quickly settle- this
trouble, as with Canada joined to the
United States the immigration to it
would soon place the French element
0 completely in the minority that it
would lose its power, and ultimately
its distinct existence. Yet this F rench
difficulty is one of tho reasons why the
United States is not anxious to push
its boundaries farther northward just
The common "cow-catcher" altacli
.ment to a locomotive is about the only
article of universal use that was never
patented It was invented by D- B.
Davies, of Columbus, 0., Still living
and quite aged. He borrowed the idea
from the mole-board of the plow,
which is used to throw the soil to one
side, but was so busy he neglected to
patent it until it was too late. It is
in use to-day as originally invented by
Mr. Davies, without 'deviation1 or
change from the original plan, and has
saved millions of dollars to railroad
companies, and probably thousands of
lives, but not a penny to the inventor.
The statement running through the
press of the country that eight ex
Speakers are living is an error. The
perscn or persons responsible for it
must have had Robert M. T. Hunter
in mind. Hunter has been dead for
more than two years, although the
compilers of the political .annuals do
not aeem to have discovered this fact.
Only seven ex-Speakers are still alive.
They are Robert C. Winthrop. Nathan
iel P. Bitiks, Galusha A. Grow, James
G. Blaine, Samuel J. Randall, J. War
ren Keifdi' and John G. Carlisle.
It the entire question of trusts be

Senator Wolcott has introduced bill
providing for the establishment of a
United States land court for the judi

private land claims in the States of
Colorado and Nevada ahd the Territo

The express companies think they
have hit upon a plan-wbich will secure
them against. lo:s bv train robbers.
They will supply cars with stationary-
safes with combination locks. .1 he
combination will be known to an
agent of the company who locks up
the money before the departure of the
