Bab Habbok, Me:, objects lo the
introduction of a railroad. The noise
would disturb the residents "who "wish
to keep the place a barred harbor.
Pbobably the worst disgusted
crowd in Texas was a mob which went
to lynch a man last weefc, and found
that another party had .already per
formed the job.
Tub Call has determined lo reor
ganize San Francisco society, and
starts-out with the lerriblyignificant
declaration that "there are too many
men -in the penitentiary, and too
many out that ought to be inP'
Tub Sun thinks it looks very much
as thotigh Arthur had determined to
make a serious effort to become the
candidate of the Republican party in
1SSL It be accomplishes -his design,
ho will be the first president, pro
moted .from the vice-presidency, in
whogo hands such and undertaking
has proved successful.
Aboct one (hundred thousand Cana
dians are engaged in the lumber busi
licss, and it is estimated that they
and those most dependent on them
constitute about one-ninth of the
population of the Dominion. The
total product of lumber in Canada in
1SS1 was $38,541,752, or 9 for each
inhabitant, of which enough was sold
abroad lo bring into the country $23,
An outorprising Ohio man has in-
vontod a new swindle. The Cincin
nati auditor increased the valuation
of heavy taxpayers' property, and
then offered "for a commission" to
get Iho taxes refunded. The scheme
worked well and the auditor's office
made money. His only mistake was
in beiusr found out. It was one of
thoo infernal newspaper reporters
that gave it away.
Seobetaby Tebbeb has decided
what his course will be as to the
claim of the Southern Pacific road to
the hmd grant of the Texas Pacific.
It will be just the same as in the case
of the Astoria land grant Ho will
not make any adverse or affirmative
decision, or place on record in the
dopftrianent lo show why the request
should not be punicd, but he will
refuse to grant the application, and
will refer the subject to congress. The
president concurs in this course.
As the xiapers often refer to the
Chinese telegrams sent to aud from
EurojKJ m connection with the Fran
co-Chinese negotiations, it may not
bo useless lo state that a special code
of telegraphy has been devised for
tho use of the Chinese. All the
characters of the Chinese language
have baen numbered, and these num
bers are sent by telegraph as secret
messages. On arriving in China they
are translated into Chinese numbers
for the us of the Chinese officials.
Onk of the significant incidents of
tho late canvass, says the Tew York
Tribune, was the great amount of
work aocomplished by the Pepubli
onus, compared with the small
amount of money it cost to do it Tho
onmpaipn fund was about $25,000.
Ootra5lod with this are the
large sums expended by the Dem
ocrats. Their candidate for register
of that city was assessed $25,000, and
all the employes under Democratic
control in the city and stale had to
pay over 24 per cent of (heir sala
TnE British brig Lou isa Corjyel, of
Yarmouth, arrived at Newport, R. I
last week after most tempestuous
weather, the waves washing over the
vessel from stem to stem. The cap
tain and his two officers decided to
tap some barrels of fish oil which
were on deck, and a number of holes
were borod into them so that a stream
of oil flowed into the sea. The effect
was almost instantaneous, tho vessel
drifting about six ppinis to leeward,
loaving the oil lo windward. The
captain says: "In three-quarters of
au hour the waves had almost ceased
branking over jhe vessel, and but for
tho oil on board Ave must have been
A rossiBiiE topic at the coming
session o congress will'be the Obey en
ne'aud Arapahoe Indians' lease of
3.117,800 acres of grazing land at two
