A TBir-LE-HEADED conspiracy ha8 been
lornied in the city of New York, the ob
ject of which is to relieve the citizens of
their shekels. It is composed of the Iter
sellers, the ice dealers, and the gas com
nanics. How to defeat the conspiracy is a
problem harder to solve than the
AVm. II. VA5DEBBH.T is puttiug a large
portion of his immense fortune in United
States four per cent bonds. He now has
$51,000,000 of these bonds, and it is re
ported that he intends to make stiil far
ther investments in them. Mr. Vandcr
tilt's wealth is immense. It is said that
bis income is about $3,000,000 a year.
A kill, providing a national bankrupt
, law, has been introduced in the senate by
Senator loumiug. "
United States Judge Lowell, of Massachu
setts, and is, in every respect, superior to
the bankrupt law which was repealed in
1878. A law of this description is being
very earnestly demanded.
The Isthmus Canal, as a subject before
congress, has suddenly disappeared, with
all those who are interested iu it. This be
ing a political year, perhaps all hope of any
action is abandoned. Capt. Kails' plan
for a ship railway is very favorably consid
ered by members, and it may be that some
action will be taken toward promoting that
enterprise, before the close of the session.
Eves the humblest of the employes in
the different departments at Washington
nnd ot the various congressional commit
tees, are not without political ambition. J
W. Smitheo, messenger of Senator Gar
land's committee on territories, is fired with
the desire to be governor of Arkansas, lie
has left Washington fur that state for the
purpose of securing the gubernatorial nun
ination from the 6tate convention, which
soon meets. In the meantime, however, he
draws his pay as messenger.
"Whatever may be Gladstone's personal
feelings about the matter there is no doubt
that it is the popular wish that he shall
lake the premiership of the new ministry'.
Tho victory won by the Liberals is due to
him. The demonstrations in his favor are
daily increasing. It is popularly believed
that the queen will first offer the place to
Earl Granville. It is doubtful, however, if
the earl would accept, knowing as ho does
that it is the almost universal desire of his
party that the piacc shall be filled by Glad
stone. Tub indications are that more emigrants
from Europo will reach our shores this
year than during any year in the history of
the country. During the firat three months
of the year 1870 eleven thousand emigrants
reached New York. During the first three
monthi of the present year the number
was nvre than thirty-five thousand. The
Herald says that the prospect U that the
number of omigrauts from Europe this
fear will reach, if it doe not exceed, four
hundred thousand. In 1854 the
number was Ihrco hundred and nineteen
thousand. It would naturally bo expected
that, on account of the famine In Ireland,
the Increase would bo considerably greater
Mb. T. W. Park?, president 01 tno
Panama railroad company, on Monday Inst,
made an address before the house commit
tee on railroads, which ought to attract
very general attention. He pointed out the
fact that the trade of the western coast of
South America amounts to $200,000,000
per annum, and that it was monopolized al
most entirely by English steamship compa
nies. Owing to this monopoly all, or near
ly all, of this great tr'ado goes to Europe.
Mr. Tarks thought the greater part of it
should como to this country, and would
como, ho thinks, if the proper means were
taken to secure it. Mr. Parks pointed out
some tacts which tended to prove why
American steamship lines have thus far
been unable to compete successfully for this
trade. Hi9 purpose is to secure a subsidy
lor a steamship line plying between New
York and Central and South Amcricu.
' Curious cases arc constantly coming up
m the courts. Two, one in Maine and the
other in Michigan, have recently been de
cided by the supreme courts of those states.
In both of the states mentioned there are
laws prohibiting work or business of any
kind on Sunday except that which is neces
sary or thnt winch relates to charity. Iu
Michigan a man subscribed twenty-five
dollars for the purpose of purchasing a
church building. The subscription was
made after church services on Sunday.
The man refused to pay on the ground that
the subscription was unlawful, because it
was made on Sunday. The court held that
the subscription came under the head of
charity, and must therefore be paid. The
The Maine case was somewhat different.
A man living in the city of Portland went
out for a walk, and during the walk stop
ped for a glass of beer. On returning, a
defect in the sidewalk caused him to fall,
whereby he received serious injuries. He
sued the city for damages. The city claim
ed that it was not necessary that he should
go for a walk on Sunday, and that there
fore, under the Sunday law, the city was
not liable for the injuries which he sustain
ed. The court held that walking on Sun
day was perlectly lawful. The judgment
was against the city.
Facts for Tourists and Emigrants,
whether for the tourist, bent on pleasure or
business, or the emigrant seeking a far
western home, Hostttter's Stomach Bitters
is the best protector against the hurtful in
fluences of climatic changes or malaria; the
most reliable medicine for general use he
can possibly carry with him. It nullifies
the effect ot sudden changes ot tempera
ture, braces the system against the enfe
bling influence of excessive heat, prevents
injurious consequences from a change ot
diet or of using bad food or water, is a fine
resuscitant of physical energy diminished
by the fatigue of traveling, and tends to
counteract the effects of exposure in rough
weather. It is much and scrviccably used
by mariners and others whos-i out door life
and arduous labor expose them unusually.
It is moreover of great service as a preven
tive and curative of disorders of the stom
ach, liver, bowels, and as a general tonic.
THE INDIAN (jVEtsTIOS THE OEHM AN AWARD
AUDIT THE PATENT OFFICE COMMISSION
EHSKir. Washington, April 17th, 1S50.
The Indian question and the German
award bill have engrossed the attention of
congress during the greater part of the
week. Roth questions are too well worn to
be very vigorously exciting. Millions are
expended every year, to clothe and feed the
red men so that they will be peaceable and
refrain from taking scalps and cattle, and
burning squatters' huts. It is possible that
it tho same bribe were given the burglars,
foot pads and common thieves all over the
country, we would realize a quantum of
domestic peace aud security that would
prove the home charity thy better of the
two, although no enthusiast, even in this
sentimental age, will advocate it. If, then,
nobody will defend the least bad of two
policies what should become of the worse?
It is a principle long established in uaturc,
and written iu laws, that human Weing
must be honest aud work, and that maraud
ers ami ing:iuus, no matter now wine
they pitch their tents, must yield to the be
nign encroachments of civilization. Iu the
light and might of civilization the Indian
has no more right to the soil over which lie
roams than the prairie wolf and grizzly
bear. If he is an animal of superior intel
ligence, he is also a ficudof more diabolic
al cru city.
The bill to carry out the agreement of
the interior department with the Utes pass
ed iu the senate on Monday by !J7 to 10.
This measure was most vehemently resisted
by western senators, who desire to open all
available Indian reservations to white in
dustry or cupidity, though, singularly
enough the two Colorado ttenators were
found on opposite sides. It was also op
posed, on the final vote, by Mr. Edmunds,
on tho ground of its unconstitutionality as
infringing on the treaty making power of
the executive. The agreement requires tho
assout of three-fourths of the Vten, and
onu of the difficulties pointed out by Mr.
Edmunds Is, that they are divided into
three separate communities, compelling
any one of which to budge by force, be
cause out voted by the remainder would

seem a great hardship. Incidentally, also
he showed how doubtful is tho power to
exempt from state taxation tho lands to bo
granted to tho Indians in severaly. With
no prejudice against tho experiment and
apparently unable to suggest a better way
from the old to tho new system, ho could
not overcome his scruple9 as to the legality
of tho bill.
The ofiice of commissioner of patents is
about to be vacated by Gen. Paine, und it
is rumored that his designated successor is,
though a lawyer, "without any considera
ble special training and experience in pat
ent matters." His decisions on appeal
cases, in the capacity of legal adviser to
the department of the interior, have been
far from giving satisfaction, Gen. Paine's
administration has, in nil respects except
personal integrity, borne out the fears ex
pressed at the time of his appointment,
and strengthens the argument of those who
contended then, as they contend now, that
tho appointment should be in the lirie of
promotion from within the office, not only
on the theory of sound civil service, but
because the requisite experience and
trained judicial faculty can only bs found
there. Any difficulty which may arise
from rivalry and "pressure'' on the part of
the body ot examiners can surely be over
come, and at least should be disregarded
in face of the importance of establishing
the principle of the immense interests at
stake. There is even as in Gen. Paine's
case, a physical limit to the tenure of of
fice on the part of an untried man.

that Mr. Godfrey is up and at work, and
cured by so simple a remedy?-'

entirely cured, and with nothing but Hop
