Mr. Rogers received the identical coin
from a customer! He will not lot it

drove him to his lonesome, friendless

,7i. A PHOSPHATE speculator in Florida
i.ought of another person a tract of
land thut had been sold at a tax sale,
and had exhumed $25,000 worth of
phosphate ready for shipment when a
woman appeared on the scene and pro
duced her deed for the land and tax re
ceipt in full. She furthermore proposes
to sue for $100,000 damages. The trouble
is caused by a loose system of assessing
and collecting taxes.

A liKTiiiED Detroit groceryman says
the most independent man on earth is
lie one who pay cash and runs no bills,
especially where he buys his provisions.
When lie feels that he can buy where
-Jibe pleases and pay as he goes he. buys
to better advantage every time and
saves money. If he runs no bill he is
.ft'.not likely to be assessed for losses on
some dead-beat account." Some dealers

THE Supreme Court of the United
States has recently decided that failure
to protect a foreign pa tent dated prior
to an American patent does not invali
date the American patent. This de
cision, coming from the Supremo Court,
is of the greatest value. It is estimated
....that it will make a net saving to inven
tors in this country of over $10,000,000
per annum, and it certainly will lift a
great load from those who unintention
ally have taken out their patents in a
foreign country prior to making appli
cation for them at home.
ST.'PAUL'S CATHKHRAL, London," is
~-u.in great danger of being damaged by
... the construction of an underground rail-

iuchitect of the cathedral, left a memo
&»"• -T'fap'dum to the effect that the foun
dations-were not as good as he could
r^wish, and it is feared that the vibration
Efcaused by thfe trains will endanger the
irSdome. It is claimed that the under
ground railway near Westminster Ab-
Jjey is not felt in that building, but in
reality, the trains 6hake it considerably.
ON May 6, 4821, Dr. Automachi, as

vggs^-to make an autopsy on the body of Na
JJJpSpoleon I. at Longwood. The post mor

•the evening. When going to continue

'almost been devoured by rats. A fresh

Miss HUNT was alone in a small
cabin in Iowa Gulch, Col., when three
-toughs oame and ordered her to get out
three square meals, and be quick abont
it. She asked how they liked their
eggs, hard or Boft, and at the same in
stant covered the nearest tough with a
revolver and pulled the trigger. Pieces
.of his jawbone rattled against the side
of the cabin, whereupon Miss Hunt,
with delicate sarcasm, observed that
perhaps "two square meals would be
enough." The two toughs begged for
mercy, and were permitted ta carry
their wounded companion into the
brush.

THE live and progressive people 'of
the Southwest are disappointed with
the Century Dictionary because it does
not contain the word "bazoo." Eastern
tenderfeet may not know it, but "ba
zoo" is a good standard word in the
Southwest, no more to be sneezed at
or ignored than such words as dog and
cat. When a politician is said to "blow
his bazoo" everybody knows what is
ment. In Sedalia, Mo., there is a lively
paper called the Bazoo, and in other
ways "bazoo" enterB largely into the
life of the people. Therefore, if the
Century Dictionary folks want to work
up a big Southwestern business, they
will have to find a place for "bazoo."

T. J. BENTON, of Pent County, Mis
souri, gives the woight of his father's
family as follows: "All of our family
except father, who is eighty-three years
old, are stout. Father weighs 100
pounds, Tom weighs 335, Elijah 240,
Henry 260, Sweeney 205, and I weigh,
as I told you, 336, making a' total
weight for the five brothers of 1,376
pounds, a pretty "heavy load for one
horse to pull up hill." Many Btories are
told of Mr. Benton's powers. On one
occasion, while he was marshal of Salem,
two big, burly six-footers attempted to
rule or ruin the town, defying the
officers
and challenging any one to arreBt them.
Mr. Benton took the obstreperous
couple, one under each arm, and car
ried them to the jail, their legs and
arms plowing around in the air with
the industry of a new and entirely idi
otic species of windmill.
THE French newspapsr originated
in rather a peculiar way. During the
early part of the seventeenth century
a physician named Renaudot resided
in Paris. He was an inveterate gossip,
and owed much of his professional suc
cess to his reputation as a collector of
news, patients seeking him as much to
obtain tidings of what was going on in
the world aB on account of his medical
proficiency. In order to increase the
number of his patients he obtained
permission from the Government to
print a sheet every week for distribu
tion among his clientele. The first of
theso sheets appeared in 1632, and so
great was their popularity that the
ingenious physician soon had many
imitators. The first publications iu all
countries were in the nature of news
letters—irregular, ephemeral sheets,
with irresponsible editors next fol
lowed the weekly, and finally the daily.
OWING to his fondness for conver
sation, the Cuban workman would lose
half his time if loft to his own sweet
will. Consequently the hands in Cuban
cigar-rooms follow a time honored cus
tom and employ a lector, or reader, who
from a pulpit in the geometrical center
of the department, entertains his audi
tors with the latest Havana news
paper in the morning and with Spanish
novels and ballads in the afternoon.
Though tho lector is on duty during the
entiro number of working-hours,
scarcely more than half his time is oc
cupied in reading. Though not recog
nized ollicially by the factory owners,
los lectors are, by a diplomatic subter
fuge, accorded privileges by the own
ers, who provide them with a platform
and reading desk, and in some case3
indirectly furnish them with maga
zines. Payment for the services of a
lector comes from the hands, and is
rarely evaded. At the end of thd week
each operative in the cigar-room is ex
pected to show his gratitude to the
reader in the shape of a small cash
present. As these presents average a
shilling per man, cue position of the
reader is lucrative, yielding in one fiic
factory as much, it is said, as a hun
dred and twenty dollars a week.
A LESSON IN DRESSMAKING.
Garments Cut, Fitted, nntl Donned in a
Surprisingly Short Time.
The style of a woman's gown has be
come a matter of so much importance
that, not only is the country flooded
with fashion magazines, but even the
staid news and lit(frary journals suc
cumb to the ruling demand, and pub
lish one or two columns of fashion arti
cles. Ladies read these with anxious
interest, and spend hours and days of
precious time in constructing garments
in accordance with them. I wish to
draw a contrasting picture.
Last spring I received an invitation
from a friend, the wife of an army offi
cer, to spend the summer with her at a
post in New Mexico. Of course I ac
cepted, and. rich visions filled my mind,
.making a kaleidoscope of noble* red
men, cowboys, bronchos, brass buttons
and military bands as only a young
girl like myself can imagine.
I was going on the war-path and
must put on my war-paint—i. e., pretty
clothes. I hadn't a great deal of mon
ey and that went for material the
making was to be done at home. For
tified with fashion plates innumerable,
mother, Bisters, friends and myself be
gan a month's siege of cutting, basting,
trying on, etc., till when the day came
for my departure, with my well-filled
Saratoga, I was worn to a shadow of
my former self. But there was conso
lation in the contents of the trunk,
which were to array me with a splen
dor that neither Solomon in all his
glory nor the lilies of the field could
approach.
The long ride over the plains was
nothing, so filled were my thoughts
with pictures of my new life picnick
ing in the canyons by day, with a gal
lant lieutenant bymy side, and dancing
and flirting to my heart's content with
the same or another lieutenant at
night, with a medley of Indians and
cowboys thrown in. I confess my most
.anxious consideration was which of
tho many pretty gowns should I don
first to make the deepest impression.
Two of equal beauty lay conveniently
near the top of the trunk to be decided
on at a moment's notice.
Well, I arrived and saw the Indians,
the cowboys, the canyons, the brass
buttons and other wonders, and was
duly amused and awed by them. But
it remained for an Indian squaw to
give me my greatest surprise.
One day as I was wandering about
the grounds, I saw a squaw, wearing
an exceedingly ragged and dirty calico
dress, go into the post-trader's Btore.
In a few minuteB she emerged from the
store carrying'a roll of gaudy calico
in her hand. Seating herself upon the
steps, she produced from some region
about her person, a needle, thread and
B. pair of rusty scissors. With these
she proceeded to manufacture a dress,
and in an amazingly short time it was
finished. Then with a dexterous flirt,
in full view of the disregarded specta
tors, she slipped it over her head, and
after some mysterious sleight of-hand
inside of it, she arose, dropping and
leaving the old garment on the ground
as a snake discards last year's skin.
Fully equipped with clothes for at
least six months' wear, she walked
away unconcernedly back to her quar
ters.—Lady Cor. Detroit Free Press.
I.VSTEAD of laying down the law with
absolute eertainty, the true thinker is
better pleased to put his convictions to
every tost. Even when he is fully per
suaded of their truth, he has no desire
to force thorn upon others, knowing such
a method to be utterly unavailing.

NAPHTHA IN THE HOLD.
CAUSE OF THE' EXPLOSION ON
THE STEAMER TIOGA.
The Combustible Material Shipped Under
a False Bill of Lading—Sensational Evi
dence Adduced—The Tessel Seized by
the Treasury Department.
Oil Inspector Crain has discovered that
naphtha was shipped under a fa'se bill of
lading from Buffalo on the steamer Tioga,
and in all probability it was (hot explosive
fluid that cansed the death-dealing disaster.
There were several hundred barrels of re
fined oil in the hold that bad been shipped
by the Geneseo Oil company, of Buffalo,
and the Daphtha was presumably smug
gled in. I tested sixteen barrels that
wore supposed to contain oil," said Mr.
Crain, and I found that fourteen of them
contained naphtha. Tne barrels were not
labeled, the only mark on them being
Diamond B.f There are about 100 more
barrels which I have not tested, and for all
I know 75 per cent, of thorn may contain
nnphthn. The fourteen barrels of naphtha
were taken to South Chicago to. the Gen
eGee Oil company's establishment."
Agent Morford, of the Union Steamboat
company, said that if any naphtha had
been shipped on the Tioga from Buffalo he
knew nothing about it. "Our bill of lad
ing," he said, "does not show any naphtha
in the cargo, and it there was any we were
imposed upon. The officers of oar line do
not know anything about it, but if it is
proved that naphtha was smuggled aboard
the Tioga we will make it warm for the
parties who shipped the stuff. Under the
law we have a perfect right to carry dyna
mite, naphtha or gunpowder, provided it is
property labled, but our line does not carry
such explosive goods, as the danger is too
Kreat."
Oil Inspector Drain, who has made an
examination of the contents of several
barrels iu the hold, gave some sensational
evidence. He said that he fonnd upon ex
amination that a large part of the cargo
consisted of barrels of naphtha, and that
these wero labeled simply "Diamond li"
instead of b-ing specifically marked so
that anyone could more leadily learn their
contents, ns required by law. The coro
ner has notified the United States district
attorney of these developments and that
gentleman will look into the matter thor
oughly. James McCarthy, ageut of the
company at Buffalo, said the TioRa had
320 barrels supposed to be refinod oil,
shipped by.tho Genesee Oil company.
Tho line has a rale against receiving in
flnmable or explosive articles on board, but
as it has no inspector of oils it depended
on the good faith of the oil company.
The Cargo Seized*
1 he treasury department at Washington
has ordered the Beizttro of the Tioga's
cargo of oil for violation of the United
States statutes. Treasury Agent Kehoe,
on behalf of the government, Las taken
possession of the Btock now stored at
South Chicago. Coroner Hertz issued an
attachment for Manager Bedford and in
structed the sheriff to arrest him. Judg
ing from the testimony being received at
the inquest, the transportation companies
will pay damages of something like $250,
000 to get out of the scrape.
Afraid of the Witches.
Eliza Strecker, 10 years old, was arrested
at Newbnrg, N. Y., on complaint of the
local Sooiety for the Prevention of Cruelty
to Ohildren, which charged her with im
prisoning her daughter, Anna, the past six
years in her home. Anna is 9
years old, and an only daugh
ter, and the mother deolared that she had
locked her up as a means of preserving her
from witches. Mrs. Strecker several years
ago lost a son, Joseph, who was stiuok on
the head with a stoue by some of his com
panions while on his way to sobool. Soon
afterwards her husband died, while another
son had a portion of his hand removed by
an accident. Her troubles turned the
woman's head and sho finally imagined
ber daughter and herself to be under
malign influences. To save the little one
from the fatal power she conceived the
idea of keeping her shut up within doors.
She conld romp in tho back yard, but she
was rigidly kept from speaking ta another
ohild.
Laws of Decency Violated.
Secretary Johnson, of tho Indiana state
board of charities, has just returned from
a visit of inspection to the poor farm in
Pike county and reports the worst mixing
of sexes in that institution that he ever
encountered. Each of the four rooms
contains from six to eight paupers of both
sexes, and representing all conditions of
miud. A man and wife occupy one bed,
two men occupy another, and a feeble
minded girl is in a third in the samo room.
In another room one bed is occupied by a
crazy man, another by two women, and a
third by two men. ThiB condition is
duplicated very nearly in the other two
rooms.
Indians llecome Iloman Catholics.
The squaw and papoose of Geronimo,
the notorious Apache, have been baptized
in the Catholic church. The ceremony
took place at St. Thomas' church, Ht.
Vernon, Ala., and Has performed by Rev.
H. O'Grady, a missionary attached to the
cathedral of the Immaculate Conception
in Mobile. Geronimo and a large number
of his Indians in full war paint attended
the service. The squaw received iu bap
tism the name of Maud and the papoose
that of Frances.
Texas on' Fire.
Destructive prairie fires have been rag
ing for two or three days along the line of
tho Southern Pacific railroad, and have
jiot jet burned out. No rain has fallen
for over a week and the prarie grass is very
dry and catches fire' from sparks from pass
ing locomotives. All the smaller tfater
courses have dried up, and the vegetation
which Has grown up in the former water
beds is burning fioroely. The cattle have
been keeping to the hills, where there iB
still some water, and but few of them have
been loet.
Boyn Find Gold Worth Millions.
Two boys, Phil Borsch and Sam Davis,
aged 16 and 17 years respectively, who
went to Landers, Wyo., from the east im
buod with the gold fever, the result of
reading yellow-covered literature, have
struck it rich. For some weeks they have
been working three mining claims 500 feet
south of the famous Buckeye mine, twenty
miles south of Landers, and on. Saturday
they struck ore whioh assays from $23,000 to
$10,0110 per ton in free gold. This is the
richest discovery ever made in this field,
and miners are flocking to tho place in
hundreds.

A TubBnrned.
A vessel was observod to be on fire about
three miles from shore off Sixtieth street,
Chicago. She was one mass of flame, and
waB made oat to be either a larjjo barge or
an excursion steamer. A small boat was
seen to put off from her, but the distanco
was too great to see how many people
there were in her.
It waB afterward found that the vessel
was the tug Mollie Spencer, of Port
Hnron. Later the Western Stone Com
pany's steam scow Two Henrys, went to
ber assistance, and it is roported, took off
eight people from the burning vessel. The
smoke was still rising in the clouds from
the wreck, aud it was suppos that the
Two Heurys had also taken fire, but this
was said afterwards to be not the case.

SUMMARY OF A WEEK'S
LATIVE WORK.,
LEGIS-
llllls and ltesolutlons Introduced and Top

It provides that tho compulsory requirement
of a deposit of United States boiids with the
treasurer of the United States by national
banks be limited in nuiouut to $1,000 worth
of bonds for each bauk, provided the vol
untary withdrawal of bonds for tho retire

Seposits
rovideB that tho act shall not apply to
of bonds to secure' deposits of
publio moneys also providing that'na
tional banks shall be entitled lo receive
circulating notes not eiceediug the whole
amount,- par value, of the bouds deposited,
and that at no time the total amount of
such shall exceed the amount of capital
Btook actually paid in. The senate re

called attention to the colloquy which oc
curred between the gentlemen from Il
linois and Tennessee, (Cannon and

that one-half of that sum 6hall be ex
pended west of the 101st meridian, .and
that tho act of October, 1888, reserving
irrigable lands be repealed- Senator Call
argued in favor of the continuance of
irrigation surveys. The repeal of the
irrigation law would open that vast
area of arid lands of 200,000 square miles
to tho operatiouH of foreign syndicates,
who would seize muoh of it under the des
ert land and timber land laws, and tho
people would be deprived of their use and
occupation. Senator Moody argued in
favor of the amendment and spoke of its
importance to the people of South Dakota.
He ridiculed tho pretensions of Maj.
Powell. The region in which he
(Mood}-) lived, and for hundreds of
miles west of it, which Maj. Towell
bad designated as arid land, WAB OB
fine on agricultural country as the suu
ever shone upon. Senator Reagan spoke
in opposition to the amendment and in
favor of continuing the irrigation survey.

ments to appropriation bills, bo limited to
five minutee for each senator, tho question
on such motion to be determined without

tion had been frequently adopted by the
senate. After executive session the senate
adjourned.
Immediately after the reading of the
journal the hocso on the 17tu went into
committee of the whole on the land grant
forfeUuro bill. A short debato ensued,
bnt little attention waB given to the diB
cuBeion because of the heat. Mr. Hol
man, of Indiana, offered an amendment for
feiting all land not earned within the time
limited by tbe granting aot. Lost.
Mr. McBae offered an amendment direct
ing the attorney-general to institute auit
against persons holding lands opposite the

feated and the bill reported to the house.

offered by Senator AHisoa makiDg in
order, in co deration of appropriation
bills, to limit debate on amendments to
five minutes for each Beuator, was pre
sefited and laid on the table, bUbj, et to a
call." Senator Dawes, from the committee
on Indian affairs, to which was ref«-rrtd
the president's message vetoing the bill to
change the boundaries of the Uccompahgre
Indian reservation, reported it back w.thout
recommendation, and at the same time re
porting anew bill for the same purpose. The
bill and message were placed on the calen
dar. Consideration if the snndry civil
appropriation bill was resumed, and Sena
tor Beag.in cont nued bis argument began
the d*v before. Senator Beagan warmly
defended M»j. Powell, and iu the course of
his remarks said it was because Powell
could not be UBed by tbe Bpeculatora in
public lands that war had been made upon
him. This led to a lively spat with Sena
tor Stewait. Senator Allison said he de
sired to put himself on record agaiubt
any approp iatiou being made iu the
diiection of continuing tho irrigation
survey. He was firmly convinced an
immediate stop should be put to
thut survey. The r. suit of its continu
ance would be to involve the government
iu enormi.us experditura and entangle
ment. Alter further discussion by Seua
ators Plumb, Cockrell, Tiller and Stew
art the amendment" was agreed to. The
items of $720,000 for au irriijalion survey,
$50,000 for engraving mops and $7,500 lor
iiffico. reut were stricken out, and tbe bill
laid aside, Senator Allison giving notice
Le would ask tha senate lo remain in ses

Adjourned.
In the liou6e on the 18th Mr. Cannon, of
Illiuois, from tbe committee on rules, re
port a resolution ttat tbe house shall
immediately procofd to consideration of
tbe "original package" bill, the previous
question to be considered as ordered Mon
day after tbe rending of the journal, and
tbat the house 6hutt consider the bank
mptcy bill, the previous question to be
considered us ordered Wednesday after the
reading of the journal. The house
deoided to conBider tbe resolution.
After some debate tbe resolution was
modified so us to provide that appropria
tion bi 1b shall not iutirfere with the cou
sideration of the two bills and tbe resolu
tion was then adopted. The "original
package" bill was then taken, up. Mr.
Beed, of Iowa, whose decision as a judgo
was oveiruled by the decision of the su
preme court, spoke in favor of the pro
posed legia'ation. He conld not indulge
in the hope expressed by Mr. Adams that
on a rehearing of Ihe question a diffcreut
result would be arrived at.- Any
lawyr who bad Btudiod the dissenting
opinions of tho court would see
that every possible phase of the ques
tion had boon discussed thoroughly be
fore the deiison was annouueod. He was
iuformed a rehearing had been applied for
and denied. If any relief wa9 to be given
the people from the wrong and evil to so
ciety growing out of thu decision of the
supreme court, it lay iu the direction
pointed out by the pending bill. They
delegated no power to the stilt -. They
merely exercised tho power delegated to
congroBti to regulate comm rco among the
states. Mr. 11 nderson, cf Iowa, sad no
decision rendered by the Bui-icmo court
since tbat court had decidod that
the human soul was a proper arti
cle of morchaudiBe, had so excited
tbe feelings of the country as tbe
original package decision. No goodcitiznu
would foil to submit to the decmion of the
court, but he (Heodeison) wguld lint nit
down with fo'ded hnnds ond wait until tho
supremo court mado somo other docisi-iu.
While he was willing to recogni/.e the de
cision ob low he was unwilling to sit still
one moment and submit to the operatiou
of that decision if there was a lawful
remedy, and he beliovcd there was. Lot
tbe gentlemen not forget that the supreme
court iu throwing this thuuderbolt into tbe
republic did not fail to .send with it a cur*.
It ciied out lo congress: "While
wo believe this to be our duty,
we believe it your duty io
remedy the evil." The people of the coun
try, without regard to party or politics, the
people who i-ended their knees and un
covered their heads in the presence of God
and biB fellowman, appealed to congress
for its action, aud for one he would not
hesitate to act. Pending further debate,
the house took a recess, the oveuing ses
sion to ba for consideration of private pen
sion bills. Nothing was done at tbe even
ing session, Mr. F.nloe raining a point of
no quorum.
Tho senate met at 11 a. m., on the 19th.
Senator Frye, from the oommittee on Pa
cific railroads, reported back the senate
bill authorizing tho secretary of the treas
ury to Battle the indebtedness to the gov
ernment of tho Sioux City aud Pacific
railroad. Placed on the calendar. Con
sideration of the snndry civil appropriation
bill was. then resumed. Among the
amendments reported by tbe committee on
appropriations and agreed lo by the Benate,
were the following: Advancing tho ap
propriation for the construction of
baildiugB and tbe enlargement of military
posts from $650,000 to $800,000.
Tbe amendment to add to the appropria
tion of $400,000 for artificial limbs,or com
mutation therefor, the words: "And in
cases of commutation the money shall bo
paid directly to the soldier, Bailor or ma
rine, and no fee or compensation shall bo
allowed or paid to any agent or attorney,"
waB made the text of a statement bv Sen
ator Cockrell, to the effect that it had been
tho practice of the various departments
nol to inform creditors of tbe I act bat the
mouey is due to tfiem, and that the prac
tice encouraged an increase of claim agents.
Senator Cockroll insisted that it Is tho
duty of the government, whenever its
records show indebtedness to any person,
soldier or citizen, to huut that person up
and pay bim. The amendment was
finally agreed to. The amendment
was adopted increasing the amount
summed up as a to'tnl of ap
propriations for all the national soldiers'
homes, from $2,611,70.) lo $2,686,000 the
amendment to add to the paragraph as to
the appointment of managers of national
homes the words, and Wm. B. Franklin,
of Connecticut Tbomas W. Hyde, of
Muiue John C. Blajik, of Illiuois, and
Geo. W. Steele, of Indiana, for tern'B of
office commencing April 21, 1890, lo fill
vacancies occasioned by the expirationE of
Ihe terms of office and by tho increase pro
vidod reby," gave rise" to a long discus.
Bion. Senator l'lumb said that hereafter
he should not vote to coutinue auy man
ager in the board any longer thon one
term of six years. He believed in a reno
vation of tho board. The management of
the national home was not as wise, con
servative or economical as it should be.
Senator AlliBon presented the Hawley
amendment proposing the name of Lewis
Gunckel, of Ohio, in plsco of Gen.
Harris, who recently died. Senator Sher
man suggested the name of S. S. Yoder in
place of Steel, who bad been appointed
governor of Oklahoma. After further dis
cussion the amendment was agieed to,
modified by the insertion of the names of
tiunckel and Yoder. The paragraph now
appoints OB managers of the National
home: Edmund N. Morrill, of Kansas,
for the unexpired term of John A. Martin,
deceased Alfred I: Pearson, of Pennsyl
vania, for tbe unexpired term of John F.
Hartranft, deceased Lewis B. Gunckel,
of Ohio, for the unexpired term of L. A.
Harris, deceased ni. B. Franklin, of
t'oi necticut Thomas W. Hyde,
of Maine John O. Black, of Illi
nois, aod Samuel 8. Yoder, of Ohio.
The amendment appropriating $4,000 for
aid to the Industrial Christian Home asso
ciation in Utah (which was established for
the protection of Mormon women desiring
to eBcape Irom polygamy) provoked a long
discussion. Tho amendment, was finally
ngrotdto, an WBB also one innerting an
item for the payment of $8,745 to tho
widow of the late Chief Justice W'aite, tbe
balance of bis year's Balary. The amend
ment as to the proposed Latin-American
memorial library was amended as proposed
by Senator Hawley, by Btriking out the
provision for a building to cost $500,100
and by substituting a provision for a sec
tion of the library of oongress and ap
propriating $25,000 for its outfit. After
the adoption of some further amendments
the bill was reported to the senate and all
iha amendments agreed to in oommittea of

ProBpect for war between the Anacondi

road company grows brighter.' Tho Union,
which has done all tbe hauling between tbe
mines of the Aunconda company in Butte
nnd tho smelters in Anaconda, a distance
of twenty-live miles from Butte, claims tho
riqht to charge for snitching done iu that
oity. They further claim to bo losin?
money at the presentrate charged Me com
pany for transportation of orte. The Ann
conda compauy declares that the road rs
losing through too low pro rale with Its
Uuion and the Northern Pacific and
declines to pay for Bwilchirg.
Both are firm ia their positions
aud are preparing for war. Tbo
Union opened the fight by refusing to de
liver ore after it had been hauled to Le
yards of the smelter city, nnd their yards
are now crowded with unloaded card. Now
the Anaconda company gets bick by
threatening to shut down both mines and
emelteit for the BeaBon and thus deprive it
of its traffic. It 1B reported that a portion
of the smelters have been ebut down and
others will follow as soon aB the supply of
6and Rives out. It is 6aid all BmelterR and
mines belonging to the company will close
Boon. Some idea of the magnitnd of in.
terests involved may be gathered from the
faot that the Montana Union hauls to Ana
conda nearlv 3,000 tons of ore daily when
the mines and smelters are tunning at fall
capacity. The move is doubtless a bluB
on the part of both as neither cau afford
to shut down, but it nill ba a bold one,
nnd considerable interest is felt in tbeont.

GROWING SMALLER.
Tho Silver State oi'Nevail-i Steadily Dimin
Islifng In Population.
Senator Stewart, of Nevada, is' very
much annoyed at'a proposition coming to
bim. from his neighboring state of Ca'i
fornia lo wipe out the state of Nevada from
the union. It will be shown from the
next census that tbe Btate of Nevada, in
stead of increasing in citizenship, is
Btead-
retrogreBBing, and the charg that it is
nothing but a "rotten borough" of mining
camps, while an exaggeration, is un
plen«nntly buggeslivo to Mr. Stewart. The
coming census will show that tbe entire
population of Nevada is something less
than 45,000 souls. The total vote cast at
thd last election, admitted to be ono of the
hottest contested elections in Nevada, only
amounted to some 10,009 votes. It has
been held tbat it is a disgrace and injus
tice to tbe other Btates in tbe union that
Nevada, with only 12,000 voters, shonld
have two senators. Senator Stewart
edmita that the figure! appear to
be against Nevada, but Bays the
explanation lies in the fact that Ne
vada is now in a transition state from a
mining to an agricultural community, and
that if given a fair chance she will in time
become as popular as any of her Bister
Btates. While no one believes that tbe
popnlation of Nevada villi ever amount to
much, it must be confessed ou the othei
hand that there is no method of ousting
Nevada from the union, beennse thereji
no provision in tho constitution by whick
either the senate or house or both can
eject state after it has dnce been ad
mitted.
