San Feancisco, November 23. At
a meeting of citizens held at Union
Hall last night, to protest against the
evident intension of the majority of
tho Board of Supervisors to pass an
order granting exclusive franchise to
the Bay Shore Railroad Company to
encircle the city with its tracks.
Strong speeches wore made and reso-
utions made which will be presented
to the Board. The sentiment of the
meeting, which largely consisted of the
mercantile clement, was in favor of
close connection between ehip and car
but no exclusivo privileges to any one
corporation.

Attorney's attention was called to the
matter, I was released. I never ougb I
to have been arrested, but it cot into

harm. 1 had been in tho theology
business for some tunc, and as usual,
was out of money. That's all there
was in that."
As the reading ol tbe letter was

saying: 1 never got much

Too Many Coats.
Late yesterday evening Officer Ste
venson was called upon to arrest Wes-
ey Moore, a roustabout, who had on
too many coats not for the season
but for his mental comfort. Tho under
coat had been taken from its peg with
out the permission of the owner, an
other roustabout named York Byers.
Wesley claimed that he had bought
tho coat from another fellow in the
presence of tbe mato of tho steamer
Taggart. Tho mate knew nothing of
the transaction, and W esley was sent
to jail.
A couple of mysterious boxes await
owners at tbe stationbouBe. Both of
them contain ladies' underclothing,

About four months ago they wero left
by a drayman at Oliver, Finnie &
Co's. and remained there unopened
until yesterday when they wero sent
to the stationhousc. No mark could
bo found on the outside, but a card on
the inside was marked: "Compliments

Courier-Journal: Atlanta is much

Washington, Nov. 21 Since the
election in New York it has been
claimed that there were 117 straight
Republican members of the next
House, notwithstanding the deleat oi
Astor. Tbe official list of the mem
bers as made np by the offioers ol the
House, and ot those who are entitled
to draw pay, only contains 146 straight
Republicans, or one short of a majority
overall. They are from different
States, as follows '

This is the list of Rcpublioans as
they will be recognized at the organi
zation of the House. There are 13G
straight Democrats, eight Greenback
ers, two Readjustcrs and one Indo-
fiendent Republican, Smyth, of Brook
yn. It is almost certain that five of
the Greenbackcrs, the two Read
justee and Smyth will voto with the
Republicans, which will give them
ten majority. The project of attempt
ing a coalition between tho Democrats
and Grecnbackers to secure the organ
ization seems to have been abandoned.
since Hewitt and several other Demo
crats declared they would not have
anything to do with it.
THE SPEAKERSHIP.
Congressman Reed, of Maine, an
other candidate for Speaker, arrived
here to day, and talks as if ho felt
hopeful. llobeBon, ot New Jersey, says
he is in favor of all Eastern members
uniting on Reed as the candidate of
the Last, as he regards him as a
stronger candidate than lliscock.
There are only thirty- four members of
the House in Washington, and of
these only twenty are Republicans,
Of these twenty Republicans eight
are candidates for Speaker. So it is
evident that not much progress has yet
been made in the car.vass. All the
candidates talk hopefully, but the
truth is, none of them as yet can give
any cstimato ot the votes they will ge'
outside of their respective States
They come here to meet and talk with
members as tbcv arrive, and so few
havo yet put in an appearance that
candidates are not much wiser than
when they first came.
Alex. II. Stephen on Ieek
Cincinnati Commercial Special.)
Washington, Nov. 21. Represen
tative Alexander H. Stephens has ar
rived in Washington, and takes hi
old quarters at the National Hotel,
the same rooms which were occupied
by Henry Clay, at the time of his
death. In conversation with your
correspondent to day, Mr. Stephens
said that his general health
during the last summer and autumn
was as good as usual, notwithstanding
tbe fact that be had taken no rest, but
had devoted about fourteen hours a
day to severe literary labor and re
search. Mr. Stephens is now suffer
ing from, and is under medical treat
ment, for a cancerous affection of the
face, which, within the past few weeks
has become quite painful. He hopes
to be able to take his seat in the
House upon its organization, and to
attend to his legislative duties as
usual.
A Sonlhern Facitie Railroad
Completed at Last. .
Little Rock Gaicttt.
Sunday's Gazette announced an end
to the hostilities between the Uould
and Huntington interests in the
Southwest, on the basis of an arrange
ment by which the work of construc
tion of the Texas L Pacifio railroads
will stop at the present meeting point,
eighty miles west of El Paso, the
Gould and Huntington roads to be
hereafter managed as Bne continuous
line.
It has since been announced via St.
Louis, that, perhaps as early as Jan
uary 1, 1882, through passenger trains
will begin running each way over the
entire route between San Francisco
and St. Louis. As the Iron Moun
tain becomes an important portion of
tho line, these trains will run through
Littlo Rock and he State of Arkan-
saw.
TbiB is a much more important an
nouncement than most persons will
suspect. It is an announcement that at
least, after many years spent in wait
ing and hoping, the dream of a rail
road to the Pacific, running through
Southern territory, has been practioal
ly fulfilled. Within a few weeks the
Southern States will have a routo to
the Paoific, not only shorter than the
one now in operation, but penetrating
territory comparatively free from ice
and snow one which can be operated
every day in the year.
Arkansas is peculiarly fortunate in
the fact that several hundred miles of
this great artificial highway traverse
tbe btatc troni northeast to southwest,
thus enabling every other railway con
structed or to be constructed within
her borders to connect with a through
line to tbe racinc ocean.
The Southern Pacifio railway rrob
lem is solved, lho line now passes
our doors.
