Railroads more deadly than war" is the taking but untruthful heading under which some , jf , be ^ journals are . comparing the statistics of railway acci dents during a year with the number of casualities in the short Cuban and Boer wars. The comparisons are meaningless because they seek to compare unlike facts and conditions. It is stated that in the Spanisli-American war, from April 21 to Oct. i, 1898, 5 1.3 months, the num her of deaths from wounds and disease was 2845; while during the year ended on June 30, 1899, the number of deaths re suiting from the operation of all the rail ways in the United States, suffered by passengers, employes, trespassers, etc., was 7123 out of the entire'population of the country. Now compare the number of persons engaged in the Cuban war with the num ber carried and employed by the rail ways, and the percentage of casualities to the number of people exposed to them shows eyen the little Cuban war to have been infinitely "more deadly" than rail roads.' Out of a total of 247,717 officers and men 2845 died from wounds or dis ease in about five months—that is, 1 in 95; while of the 928,924 railway employes in the country, 2310 were killed, or 420, in a year. The little Cuban war actually killed 635 more soldiers than the entire number of railway employes killed on the 190,000 miles of railway in twice the time. When the casualities to the traveling public are considered, the absurdity of the comparison with the loss of life in war is still more apparent. The number of passengers carried by t ie railways in the United States during the 12 months referred to was 523,176,508 of whom only »39 were killed, or 1 in 2,180,000t Evi dently railway travel is not ''more deadly than war," when, in a very small war, in a very few mouths, the number of deaths is 12 times as great—2845, against 239— as the whole number of railway passen gers killed in 12 months, out of the 523, 000,000 carried. Comparison of railway casualities with those resulting from war or any other cause is evidently ridiculous, unless the number of persons exposed is compared in each case. Otherwise almost every employment and amusement—bicycling, boating, gunning, fishing, walking on city streets, or going to bed nights might be demonstrated to be ''more deadly than war" by comparing the number of fatalities resulting from a single war with the total number of deaths from these causes or in these conditions, oc curring in an entire continent, within a corresponding time.

M Pound is a practical mining man and his judgment of the muclTadvertised gold fields will be of in terest. He reports it a big fake. Thou sands of men are stranded there and the suffering is horrible. Laborers are paid but small wages when they can secure employment at all. There are no good claims in the district. Some gold was taken out in the past, but it was*in small pay streaks. The waste of goods, which were ship ped at great cost and found worthless, is very great. The smallpox, fever and malaria are claiming hnndredsof victims. ALIAS SUMMONS. In the district court of the Second judicial district stale of Idaho, in and for Nei Perce county. Ar.nie L.
