in its treasury at the close of the
last campaign, according to com
mon report, but between that time
and the selection of Lewis Nixon

to do with Nixon's resignation.
There is to be an investigation to
find where the money went, but

A C'oiniHMiml lutereat Scheme.
Missouri voters are asked to sup
port a compound interest scheme
that piles up debts appallingly. The
school fund certificates of Indebted
ness now amount to more than four
millions and it has been the policy
of the present state administration
to use all accumulated interest for
other purposes and issue additional
certificates therefor. Early in Feb
ruary there was sum of $4,000 in
the school fnnd treasury. This was
transfencd to other funds and a cer
tificate of indebtedness placed in its
stead, drawing interest from the
moment it was issued. Now these
certificates are classed as irreduci
ble debts and under the present pol
icy of compounding the interest, this
$4,000 will amount to $S.oooin

Congressman Williams of Illi
nois has introduced a bill providing
that tbe government shall defray the
funeral expense! of all former Union
soldiers who may die without leav
ing sufficient means to give them a
proper burial. Mr. Williams was
induced to offer this bill by reason
of his experience in tecuring pen
sions for two of his constituents at
Ibis session. The pensions were
granted but the parties died in dis
tressing circumstances before they
received any benefit from the bounty
of congress. It is said the pension
committee are unanimously in iavor
of the bill, and wilt possibly report
it at the present session. Docs not
this clearly indicate to Mr. Williams
that there is a serious defect in the
pension laws or the interpretation
thereof, that such men should be
compelled to ask bim to have spec

Have the law interpreted as con
grcss intended it should be and no

Williams will be necessary.

the kingdom of Naples. In 1S57,
when 10,000 pet ished there, it was
estimated that iu seventy-five yeais
it bad lost 111,000 inhabitants by
earthquakes, or more than 1,500 a
year of a population of 6 millions.
Peru and Ecuador, too, have suffer
ed severely. In 1 S59 Quito was
shaken and a?ioot 5,000 persons
killed, while nine years later several
towns in the two states were over

The most important earthquake of
recent years was in Japan in tSqi

The United States has been hapi

felt only three earthquakes of im

Mississippi valley in 1S11 when
great chasms opened at New Mad
