Washington, February 21 All the
elements of a natioual scaiithtl, in con
nection with tbu proposed legislation
eoiiQeining the indebtedness of the Pa
cific railroads to tho Govenmieiit, are
now floating around Washington; and
wliilo all patriotic citizens hope it will
lie avoided, no clear-headed observer
will be surprised if it isn't. There has
never been u st longer lobby in Wash
inglim 111, in that which i.- rcpicscuting
what arc known as the Iluiiiinloii
iuteresls. It is the .richest plum the
lobbyists have had for a number of
years, and tliey arc disposed to make
the most of it. Tim object of the Hunt
ington lobby is to get n bill extending
the indebtedness i,f these roads
$100,000,000 for one hundred )ears,
at 2 per cent interest, through Con
gress, and f.iiling to do th.it, to pre
vent the passage of any Dill that will
result in ousting the Huntington cmwd
from the control of the roads. It is
well supplied with money, whieh it is
prep.ued to spend directly for eon
giessmenV votes or for any sort of
influence that can be made to control
either votes or the promise of oppor
tune absence of voteis in either Hoti.-e
or Senate when tho time comes to vote.
These things aro very, well known to
those who are trying to biing these
roads to book through legislation, and
tho congressman who accepts a bribe
will be in danger of exposure and the
disgrace That must necessarily follow.
Secretary Cai lisle is being criticized
very haishly by many for having
allotted the bonds upon which bidders
failed to make the first paimcut at the
proper time about $5.000,000 to J.
Piertepont Morgan at. his bid of 1.11
when ho could have sold them in the
open maiket for 1.17, thus giving Mr.
Morgan a profit of $300,000, which Mr.
Carlisle's critics figure should have been
mado by tho Government. Senator
Hill has up to this timo prevented tho
adoption of a resolution ottered b Sen
ator Allen pinviding for an investiga
tion of this whole bond business.
The Republican members of Congress
from New Yoik gave a dinner this
week to formally introduce thoMoiton
boom in congressional circles. The
dinner was n good ono and tho speeches
up to the average, but it will take more
limn one dinner to make the Morton
boom appear to tho politicians of Con
gress ns anything more than a shadow,
notwithstanding the popularity of Gov
That Secretary Morton is the most
unpopular member of tho cabinet, so
far as Congress is concerned, was made
certain by the harsh ciiticisms passed
upon him iu both branches of Congress,
and the absence of even a single do
fender of him or his acts. The imme
diate cause of these ciiticisms was the
action of Secretary Morton in refusing
to spend the money Congress appropri
ated for the purchase and fieo distri
bution of seeds, but much of the enmity
lowttids him' in Congress lias been
caused by his constantly-going out of
his way to whack tho silver men over
tho head and to exploit his single
siandaid gold hobby, whieh is prob
ably not endorsed by half a dozen men
in Congic-s. Congress is going to
have those seeds bought and distrib
uted, or know Ihe leason why. It is
all very well to laugh, as the members
of tho House did when Representative

In view of the disposition of senators
to become presidential candidates, not
withstanding the historical 'hoodoo
which has up to now prevented any
man who has served in the Senate be
coming president, it may bo well to
call attention to the fact that there aro
six Senators who aro constitutionally
barred out of the While House. They
aro Gallingor of Now Hampshire and
McMillan of Michigan, who were born
iu Canada; aewol of Now Jersey, born
iu II eland; Jones of Nevada and Mantle

After long consideration of iho nu

lo'th'e immigration laws the Senate
committee decided that in addition to
i lie present restrictions one'slioiild be
added excluding all persons over 14
years of ago who cannot read and
write tho language of their native
country, excepting aged parents or
grandparents of admissible immi
grants, and a bill providing therefor
was favorably repotted to the Senate.
Tim prospect for cither tariff or
financial legislation at this session of
Congress is anything but good at this
lime, and few people expect it to grow-better.
Xew .Masonic l.o8co.
Tim Masons of Winslow held a vecy
important meeting last Sunday, at
which it was decided to request J. X.
Woods, our enterprising citizen, to

The Populists of tho Tei ritory, in
session for tho past two days at the
city hall, adjourned yesterday nfler
noon. There was a creditable amount
of enthusiasm, and of course tho usual
amount of oratory, without which it
it would not havo been a Populist gath
ering. Duo justice was done to nearly
all tho ills to which human flesh is
heir, and a remedy assured through
medium of thu Pops, and their medi
cine. The committee on credentials re
ported the names of about sixtv dele
gates as entitled to seats, and then the
temporary organization was made per
manent. It was II. E. Barnes, chair
man, and IL W. Nash, secretary.
A letter was received from William
O. O'Neill, now in New Yoik, assur

comprising the following: Endorso
that grand new declaration of inde
pendence, the Omaha platform; de
mands tho immediate lemonetization
of silver at the ratio of 16 to 1. without
the consent of foreign nations; de
nounces the borrowing of money on
interest-bearing bonds as an attempt of
the 11101103; barons to wickedly enslave
tho people and to deprivo them of
their sacred right and privilege to coin
and issue their own money; favors the
system of direct legislation by tho
peoplo known as the initiative of rep
resentation, v, hereby they can promptly
enforce the passage of those laws they
desire; invites the co-operation of all
Lincoln Republicans and Jeffersouian
Democrats, of all who favor the free
coinage of silver, which can bo quickly
attained by a union of all parties favor

The farce of issuing annuity goods to
the Indians on tho heel of winter was
re-enacted on the White Mountain
reservation this week. We may expect
to see the Government's wards in
Globe within a few days selling two
dollar shoes for six bits and exchang
ing seventy-five-ceut flannel for six
ccut calico, yard for yard. Blankets,
woolen shirts and socks and other
articles ot apparel issued to tho Indians
aro likewise disposed of for a song.
Why is this? Because the Indians have
no use for these goods after the winter
is over. It is time a reform was insti
tuted in this auouity business Silver

A telegram in tho Los Angeles
"Times" from Sail Francisco says that
C. W. Smith, the uow receiver of the

radical changes iu the management of
that road March 1st. It says that John

H. C. Bush, general freight agent,

a geueral agency, and Bush will be
given the title of general agent of
