It is said that there are only fou

France is apparently finding the

in Russia, which still continues its

The editor of the Mountain
JJemocrat presents a sad picture
of demoralization among the
wealthy and prominent men of
San Francisco. He writes:
am credibly assured that every

tors, bankers, merchants, and the
like taken home in hacks and
coupes, too drunk to navigate,
from the clubs and tony resorts,
than there are drunks taken from
the slums to the lock-ups."
According to a "Washington

year mostly by his "Washington
practice, and that he made 40,

Route plunderers. In short, In-
gersoll is now making so much
money in Washington that he can
not afford to dwell on the "mis
takes of Moses," in his rounds as
an itinerating lecturer. Ex-Sec
retary Boutwell, who was not orig
inally educated as a lawyer, but
was a country storekeeper, having
had considerable knowledge of de
partment business, became a mem
ber of the cabinet at a later day,
and has now opened a law office
in Washington. Roscoo Conklinc
has been doing considerable busi
ness in that city of late, and it is
said that his practice now exceeds
$50,000 a year. He will probably
settle down in Washington until
his chances for the Presidency are
wholly extinguished, or when he
comes to understand that there is
no longer any chance for him as a
