Eight thousand coal miners are
on a strike at Pittsburg. It will
end as all strikes de: an immense
amount ot lost time, representing
just so much money to the work

Kallocu's Metropolitan "Tem

The reverend gentleman who led
the mob and ran the city is now in
seclusion on his Santa Clara ranch,
and the curtain falls on one of the
most remarkable dramas ever en
acted on the stage of human life.
Geeen B. Raum, for reasons
best known to himself and the
president, recently resigned his po
sition as commissioner of internal
revenue. "SYithin three hours af

Dynamite and glycerine may
yet prove the poorest kind of ar

Reports from San Francisco are
to the effect that in consequence
of recent adverse reports concern

unfounded,) English ship owners

A CORRESPONDENT of :i TuCSOD
journal advocates the removal of
the Apaches, not to Indian Terri

allowing $30 a head for bring
ing them to San Francisco
by railroad, and as much
more for shipping them to their
final destination. lie thinks this

About 450 miles of thread are

Thirty years ago it was all im

The end of the Atlantic and

of the Colorado river and grading
is about com nleted.

A United States mail-wagon
got mixed up with a circus proces

in a thousand of the spectators
knew it did not belong there.
Governor Butler of Massachu
setts is said to have been the only
Democratic governor in " the
Union who was not invited to
the Iroquois Club dinner in Chi
cago. Some men are so small, in the
most comprehensive sense of the
term, that one feels like putting
them into a vat of vinegar for the

The Boise City, I. T., Republi

for the Oregon Short Line to run

orders have been given to stop

Two surviving "widows" of a
dead San Francisco millionaire are
fighting under the probate law for
the estate, and one of them comes
out with a card in which she says
she is unwilling to fight newspa

porters are too numerous'and pro

A Philadelphia paper, being in
quest of the longest word in the
English language, imagines itself
to have found that word in
honorigcabilitudinity, which has
eleven syllables. Unfortunately
for the Philadelphia paper, but
fortunately for mankind, there is
no such word in the English lan
guage. A Turin jeweller has made a
tiny boat formed of a single pearl,
which shape it assumes in swell
and concavity. Its sail is of beaten
gold, studded with diamonds, and
the binnacle light at its prow is a
perfect ruby. An emerald serves
as its rudder, and it stands in a
slab of ivory. It weighs less than
half an ounce; it price is $5,
000. The San Francisco Exchange
publishes this meditative parable
for the instruction of the peeple:
" 'It's all right to say that George
Washington never told a lie,1 re
marked a tnousuttul mining
superintendent. 'I don't say he
did, but he lived in a time when
that wasn't hard for a man to ac
complish. If George were alive
now and running my mine and
had to write a woekly letter
reporting progress, I am inclined
to think he'd wrap crape around
his little hatchet and put it away
where the historians of the future
wouldn't be likely to find it.' "
The Louisville Courier-Journal
admits that Mr. Ingersoll's funeral
orations are well enough, but
thinks he should try himself on
obituary resolutions. The follow
ing form is suggested as a starter:
"Resolved, That in the loss of our
we recognize the absence of life in
the said S. S.; that we do not know
whether our fellow-citizen Stack-
pole is now in comfortable
quarters; that we cannot say
whether Stack, is now red-hot or
merely heating; that Stack, was
always a good fellow; that it is un
reasonable tosuppose that any pun
ishment will be visited upon Stack.;
that we can only gaze vacantly
at the doubtful beyond, and con
jecture as to the happiness or ex
istence of Stack.; that we hope he
is whore flowers are blooming, and
where pie is perennial; that this is
tho way we think matters should
be arranged for Stack.; that a copy
of these resolutions be sent to all
the newspapers, with the request
that they be published gratis; that
the publisher of these resolutions,
being a member of the church, will
be amply repaid in the expecta
tions he will have of a reward in
the next world (il there be any
next world) for the dead-head
printing he has done in this."
