Washington, October 12. The Col

It appear" thnts-vm Cbineie in tran

Hotolu u, have not ytt departed fiom
Sin Francisco, although thev have
bad ample time to do to. The col

that these persons do not intend to
leave the country, and tbat even if
they dc, it is tlieir purpose t3 fraudu
lently obiain rtu-n certificates in
order to establish a r gbt to rome and

tention to the practice of
the Federal courts in landing
Chioeee laborers on write of habeas
corpus and ;e'eaeiog them on biil
af er the co.Iec or has examined into
their casfs nut refused to allow them
to land. Tais practice, he says, is
substantially an abrogation of the
law. Acting Secretary Fairchild has
wr tea to ihe collector' in reply as
follows: ''As the coinpetemy of tbe
customs officers to enforce the re
striction act t rxiutstes under the law
with the landing of Chinese pirsms,
it would seem that the duty to eeek a

The Hauling- Dowu or the Fins; on
Washington, Ojtobsr 12. Advices
received a' the State Department this
morning corroborate the published
report of the hauling down of the
American flag on tbe American
schooner Marion Grimep, at Sbel'iurn,
by Capt. Qtrg'ey, of the Canadian
ctuser Terror. The action of the cap
tain of the Grimes in running up the
colors while the vessel was in the cus
tody of CanHdian officer is deprecated
at the department, as likely to need
lessly complicate the department in
its eibrts to re;eh a satisfactory settle

Paris, October 12. There is a rapid
growth of the war feeling in FraLca.
The Boulanger party have begun the
issue of two new journals, La Rtvanche
and Le Soldat Laboureur, to ad voca'e an
ofl'enuive policv and stimulate the old
military prestige of France. Gen.
Bonlanger, however, disowns any con
nection ith the papers. M. Lave
don, the military citic, writes ti
Figaro that Gen. Boulanger prepared
a well conceived plan in conduct in
connection with a ttafi officer of high
rank for a continental campaign. The
MUitaire fays Gen. Boulanger desires
war, not fur the purpose of recovering
Aleace, not to g atify pe-sotal am
bition, but as a step leading to the
solution of EoMal questions. The
strickett laboo tf everything German
is being obseivcd. M. Lockroy,
Minister of Commerce, has ordered
the police to prrsscute all parsons
selling boxes of toys imported from
Germany and containing a map of
Fiance w thout Aleac.

Nniireme Court Derision.
Washington, October 12. Tbe Pa
cific National Bitik cases, which were
tinder argument in tbe Supreme Court
of the United States today, are of in
terest to a large number of persons, es
pecially in Maftachusetip, inasmuch
as they involve the question of the
liability cf the stockholders of the
solvent Pacific National Bank of Bos
ton for the amounts of stock sub
ecribtd to by them when the capital
stock of the bank was increased Irom
$500,000 to 11,000,000, in September,
1881. The appealing stockholders con
tend tbat the capital stock of the bank
never was validly increased to $1,000,
000; that the attempt on the part of
the directors and tbe Comptroller of
the Carrency, in December, 1881, to
fix the capital stock at 1061,300 was
contrary to law and void ; and that
consequently the shares of so called
new S'ock on which they are sued
never had any legal exisience. Tbe
couit below decided against them.

D. Pormr, Assistant S cretary of State,

that consequently the Treasury De

no authority t j issue drafts, and that

THE UOVEHXOR'S Aa. MEAL
POBT TO THE
secretary of the Interior The Con
dition of Business and
Wac niNGTON.Oi-tober 12, -Ths Hon.
Gilbert A. Pierce, Governor of Dakota
'J erritory, in his annual report to the
Sicretiry of the Intarior, tays: Tne
year has not been altogether as p oa
perous as was desired, Dakota mlTur
ing in toinmon with the reat of the
country from more or le;s business
prostration, and from the droutb,
which injured tbe small giains, there
by materially lessening the yield. The
dronth was not general, however, but
local in its character, come parts of the
Territory showing large yie'dj while
in othera the fai.ure was almost com
plete.. It is difficult to estimate cor
rectly tbe shortage in the crops over
last yar, but it is safa to say that in
wheat and cats it will be at least one
third, and I fear more. FUx, rye and
barley also sutler, but to what extent
it is impossible to eay. Tbe yield of
potatoes and other roots will probably
be near up to the average. Cattle in
dustry has developed very rapidly
during the year in other parts of the
Territory. It has been supposed tbat
the Urge cattle ranches must be c in
fined to the western part of the Ter
ritory, where the abundant grass and
1' mi ted snowfall enable cattle to grazs
durng tbe winter months. Late ex
periments have demontt ated, how
ever, tbat catt'e ra-sing can be profita
bly pursued even iu the extreme
northern part of the Territory, and the
result has bean the establishment of
large cattle lanches in various sec
tions. The bonded debt of the Terri
tory remains the same as one year
ago, namely, $518,200. The assens
ment of 1888 shows an increase over
1885 of about $24,000,000, making the
total assessment for the year of about
$130,000,000. The tax for the Territo
rial purposes for the year 1880 is but
2.4-10 mills. The total county indebt
edness of the Territory, bonded and
fl latinp, is a little over $3,C00,
C00. School statistics for the last
year have not yet been received, but
there is no doubt but the remarkable
progress shown during the fla?al year
of 1885 is continued. On the subject
ot the drouth and development of the
Territory the Governor quotes at
length from the report of the Cam
miesioner of Immigration, whichsays:
!'Theie were 22,431 new filings on the
pub.i'i lmds during the year under
the three general land laws, divided
as fallows: Homettiads, 7401 ; pr
emptione, 7894, and tree claims, 7071.
The ar-a newlv filed on during the
year was 3,505,306 acres. There were
U!)02 final proofs madA during the
year. The sales of land by the North
ern Pacific Railioad Company durine
tbe year are eEtimat'.d at 25,000,010
acres. The total increase in popula
tion of the Territory for the year is
estimated at 85,000, giving Da'kcta a
population on June 30, 1886, of fully
500,000. The railroad building
of 1886 bids fair to be much
greater than for any previous
vear in the history of the Territory."
The Governor estimates the total con
struction of railroads in the Territory
for 1886 at 800 miles. In conclusion,
the Governor discusses the subject of
the admission of Dakota into the
Union, and adds: ' I renew my recom
mendation most earnestly, that this
great people be no longer kept from
their rightfal heritage, but be per
mitted a share and voice in tbat Gov
ernment they honor by tbeir public
spirit and sustain by their industry."

MEMPHIS DAILY APPEAL WEDNESDAY,
THE GIGllTIC MWOLY
IfT WHICH THS PLAXTtRS ARE
In Otbtr Ford , Forced lo Sell
Their Cot. on Seed Below
Its Real Tulue.
Nsw Orleans, La., October 11.
The Time-Democrat editorially tavs
How much the Siuthem planter.) are
interested in tnis cittoa seed problem
is well shown bv the many letters re
ceived by the Times-Democrat rn this
subject. A correspondent ho writes
ns fcppiovinsly of tur first article.
which, by tbe by, has teen nenerally
repuDiienea in t tie southern press,
Bays: "Such articles muct s;oa bear
fruit. Already there is a feeling of
aistrusr, f i unreet, of prsitive d'Sut's
factiou among the cotton farmers of
tbe South at what they cmeideran a -tempt,
so fr tuccesslul. on ths part of
the American Cot. on Oil Truet to ob
tain tbe seed crop i.t much less than
its real 'value. To avoid taxation
the company is called a trust,
instead of a stcck company." Our
correspondent declares that ti.e
Oil Trust was started with the mills of
the Howard Oil Company. The mills
of this cencern were valued at Bsveral
tines what they were worth and trust
certificates issued therefor, which were
taken iu peyment for these mills
which already belonged to therm elves
at 20 cents on th 1 dollar, o: 2J per
cent for tbeir par value. This dene,
they begin on the most timid mill
ownors they couli find and bulldoz-d
them into takirg a low price for their
null-, taking tbeir pay iu camuCiites
at high prices. In ibis wav the v have
ee.u ed all the lare mills of the
country, paying for mo it rf them
witn trust cenibi-ntta. The plan is to
force all the mills th:.t are now cut in
to the trus-. This in the way they
propi se to do it : Whenever aa out
side mill makes a cLipment of oil or
cake an aent of the i rust will fjllow
it up and oiler the unuie amount at a
price so low that tbs shipment will
lose monsy. In this way they expact
to kill the mill men off without ad
vancing tbe price of seed or in
any wy b-nentinjt the producer.
The Timet Democrat has already
shown tbat tbe immense cui al ol
this company is nearly all water.
Mills worth at most $5,000 030 and
capitalized at $S,0OOOjO or so, have
been watered up to $35X00,000, aod as
there is no limit to the capitalization,
as it can keep on grinding out s'ock
as long as it choosts, there is no rea
son wby tbe cspi'al Bhonld not finally
reach t50,000,0j0 or $75,000,000. By a
careful sys im of hooeting. the certifi
cates have been fcr;ed up to nearly 60,
and it is claimed that they will be
driven to 7o helore Januar. This has
been accomplished by saying that the
Standard Oil Company was backing
the Trust, and by pretending in New
York tbat the monopoly is tomplett
master of the situation, has the plant
ers at is mercy, aud it can dictate to
them the prictsto be paid for soed.
The South has little interest in the
stock jobbing part of the undertaking
in New York; wbat it wants is to see
the plan'er protect d and getting his
full share of the profit from the cotton
seed and to prevent the impoverish
ment if tbe soil by taking from it the
elements of fertility in the seed. Toe
crop of 1886-87 will aggregate 3,000,000
tons. Of this 15 per cent., or 450,000
tons, will be cru-lied; 5 per cent., or
150,100 tons, will ba required for
planting, making a total of 600,000
tons tbat comes to any legitimate me,
leaving a balance of 2,400.000 tons
that is practically wasted. If this seed
was manufactured by tbe men who
produce it, and all of the product (ex
cept tbe oil) ns'.d by them, it would
be worth millions of dollars to the
South. Our correspondent, after con
sidering the whole question, cornea to
the same conclusion reached by the
Times-Democrat some days later," that
the monopoly of the seed by the Tru-t
Company can be b96t prevented and
the plauters mout benefited by the
plan proposed years ago by Mr. At
kinson. He says:
"I see but one way out of this di ffi
culty, tbat i?, forthe local capital of the
country to combine with tbe cotton
farmerd and bui'd central ginneries
w.th oil mills attached and handle the
business on a large FCJle, using none
but the bef.t improved machinery for
the purpose. By doing this a saving
of 90 per cent, ran be ma le in the
cost of gins, as 10 per cent, cf tbe gins,
if properly arrangnd, are sufficient to
gin the entire crop. Again, by tuo
employment of such improved ma
chinery, together with skilled lib r
to superintend the ginning, the crop
of 1880-87 would bring atleast $30,000,
000 more than it would sell for as it
is now ginned. This sura added t)
the loss Od the sacd would make the
cotton farmer of the South, what his
occupation entitles him to be, a princa
in the land."
Tnis states one feature of the rase
very well, and will recommend itee f
to the producers of cotton. From the
communications that come in to us,
from the many suggestions made as to
bow the machinations of tbe Trust
Company can ba defeated, we feel as
sured that tbe planters will yet be
able to prevent this monopoly from
carrying out any pianB injurious to
their interests and those of tue South.
Did Not Abuse President Cleveland
as the "World" Reported.
New York Star: Yesterday's World
contained a Washington dispatch giv
ing a long story about Senator Gib
son, of Louisiana, and an interview
alleged to have occurred between him
and the President on Thursday. As
the World's storv goes. Senator Gibson
called at tbe White House to remon
strate with tbe President in the mat
ter of tbe Louieiana officials charged
with having violated Mr. Cleveland's
civil service order of last summer. The
Senator is dtscribed as havirg taken
very high grounds in his defense cf
tbe rjff-nde;s, whose appointments be
is credited with having e ecu red. Ac
cording to the World's Washington
young man, tbe Senator brietled up to
the Pretddent and told him that the
officials had done no wrong; that they
had done no more than Col. Lamont
and Secretary Manning were doing at
tbat moment, and lhat he pro
tested against the infliction of
any punibhment. Tbe Presi
dent is supposed to have quailed be
fore Mr. Gibson's wratb, and the
Senator to have retired in triumph.
Of courje, there is not a word of truth
in this absurd yarn. Our Washington
dispatch, published elsewhere this
morning, states positively that Senator
Gibson's call at the Executive Man
sion was on business entirely foreigu
to tbat alleged in the World's canard,
and that the matter of the Louisiana
officials was not once alluded to. It
also states incidentally that Col. La
mont's mission to New York a few
days ago had no reference to politics.
And, in a word, tbe H'orWi story
turns out to be a lie from finst to last.
It only remains to say that this is per-
