The effort to establish a cotton mill at
San Francisco has failed, although cot
ton of a good quality is raised in thir
teen counties of California. The cotton
growers threaten to grow wheat on their
lands if the capitalists do not put up
mills to utilize the cotton.
Miss M. M. Gillett, a native of Wis
consin, and now a resident of Washing
ton, and a student of law, was on Tues
day appointed by the President a notary
public for the District of Columbia.
This is the first instance of a woman
receiving such an appointment from the
The Texas Prohibitionists, at their
State Convention last week, decided that
it was not advisable to form a separate
political party, the great majority of the
delegates being of the opinion that the
Democratic party can be made available,
with proper action on the part of the
Prohibitionists prior to the meeting of
the next Democratic State Convention.
The New York Herald suggests the
erection of a statue to one who really
deserves it, who has won a great victory
for America —Iroquois, the winner of
the Derby. It proposes, in commemo
ration of this victory, that a bronze
statue of the horse be erected in Central
Park. Well, a people that are given to
man-worship are apt to fall into horse
Mr. Thoma3 A. Connolly, of Washing
ton City, has invented an improvement
of the telephone. The new invention is
described as an arrangement to be at
tached to each telephone, whereby, upon
turning a switch or handle to a certain
point, any subscriber can at once place
himself in communication with any
other subscriber without the intervention
of a central office.
It is quite probable, says a Washing
ton dispatch, judging from the expres
sions of members ot Congress, that some
of the star route service discontinued by
the Postmaster General will be restored
by order of Congress when that body
meets. Letters received here mention
that great dissatisfaction is exhibited in
sections of the Southwest over the dis
continuance of the mail service.
The Gloucester, Mass., fishermen have
been so well paid for the Fortune Bay
fishing exploit that they may try it
again and put their damages higher.
The actual amount of damage to their
nets during the scrimmage with the
Canadian fishermen was $2,300, for
which the British Government has paid
$75,000. The owners of the two fishii g
smacks “damaged” never made such a
profitable excursion to Canadian waters
in their lives.
The Ohio Republicans will have to get
along without the Jewish and temper
ance vote this year. In the case of the
latter they positively refused to insert a
prohibition plank in their platform;
while they openly repudiated the Jews —
who hold the balance of power in Cin
cinnati—not simply by refusing to nomi
nate an Israelite on the ticket, but by
the reason given for this neglect—that it
would excite the religious prejudices of
the Republicans of the Western reserve.
Mabone is said by the leading Repub
lican organs to be the champion of fret
and unrestricted suffrage in Virginia.
One of his organs, the Wytheville Ga
zette, edited by Mahone's candidate for
Attorney General, Mr. Blair, says: “GeD.
Mahone not only has the Federal patron
age in Virginia, but he will run the Nor
folk and Western Railroad. Let tht
Funder depot agents, conductors, sec
tion masters, etc., ‘look out for the loco
motive.’ Danger may be ahead.” This
appears to be a very lively threat against
“free and unrestricted suffrage.”
The demand upon Arthur to resign the
Vice Presidency is becoming quite loud.
So respectable a paper as the Springfield
Republican declares that his course is
degrading the office of Vice President,
and requests him to step down and out
A Democrat would, of course, succeed
him, as the Democrats now control the
Senate, but this, the Republican declares,
would be far preferable to a Vice Presi
dent who spends his whole time in lob
bying and endeavoring to bulldoze the
members of a Legislature. Republicans
are now beginning to recognize the fact,
It continues, that Arthur’s nomination
was most unfortunate.
We are Americanizing England—
rapidly furnishing it with pork, oysters,
corn, everything it wants. The latest
American notion introduced into Eng
land, however, is not at ail welcomed or
relished by the Britishers—and this is
the American mosquito. It is impossi
ble to discover how it got into the coun
try, though probably it was in a trunk,
but it is certainly there, and is making
itself felt in the most fashionable por
tion* of London. Wholly unacquainted
with the little insect, the English are
said to be ridiculously worried when
attacked by one of them, and actually
complain of feeliDg ill when suffering
from a few mosquito bites.
The oleomargarine factory recently
started in New Orleans is now turning
out from 5,000 to 8,000 pounds of the
article daily. It seems to be popular
with consumers there, and the entire
product of the factory is readily disposed
of to the local trade at 18 cents per
pound, which has had the effect to bring
down the price of dairy butter from 35
and 45 cents to about 23 cents per pound.
The New Orleans Democrat says the
article manufactured is, by general ad
mission, “pure and wholesome —free
from all the objectionable and delete
rious ingredients so of ten ascribed to the
article manufactured North,” and pre
diets for it a steadily growing popularity
and consumption.
The keepers at the life-saving stations
along the lake and sea coasts are sending
in their resignations to the Superinten
dent of that valuable service, with the
statement that they cannot support them
selves and their families on the S4OO a
year allowed by the government. That
is a small pittance for men who are em
ployed in a most hazardous service and
one of the most exacting character. The
men resigning arc all experts, and the
department will suffer in consequence.
The work requires skill and great physi
cal endurance. The responsibilities of
the keepers are very greet, and they have
to do as hard work as the surfmen, who
work eight months in the year and get
S4BO. The keepers want S6OO, and that
is little enOtigb for the service they per
form in and property during
the long Btormy period of the year.
Leprosy In Louisiana.
The Louisiana Board of Health has
just made its report for 1880, and tells a
horrible tale of this incurable contagious
disease in that State. It was brought
to the West Indies in 1680, and thence
to Louisiana by negro Blaves. In 1778
leprosy, elephantiasis and another hor
rible disease, called yaws, was so preva
lent among the blacks that a hospital
was established for them in New Or
leans; but at the present time the ma
jority of lepers in the city are found to
be whites, of French, German and Rus
sitn extraction. The board made a
personal investigation into the extent of
the disease, even into the low, wet, in
fected Lafourche district. Here, says
the report, “the poor Creole inhabitants
live in low huts, surrounded by wet rice
fields, living upon fish and fish-eating
birds. They are separated from the rest
of the world, and have inter married for
generations. So impregnated with
disease is this remote region that some of
the exploring party were struck down
on reaching it with violent hemorrhages
and fever. Of all foul corners of the
earth it is the fittest for the disease most
dreaded by man since . the beginning of
the world to hide with its prey. Leprosy
was found here existing in different
generations of six families, and some of
these wretched creatures, driven out
from human habitation, living apart in
the swamps, dying of decay. It was im
possible to make a correct statement of
their numbers, as a rumor spread that
they were to be carried away to aD
island in the sea, and they hid them
selves, their friends refusing to give
their names or number.”
The Freedmen’s Bank.
Since Comptroller Knox took hold of
the Freedmen’s Bank considerable pro
gress has been made in winding up its
affairs. A saving of $12,000 was effected
in the item of salaries by the dissolution
of the original commission. Depositors
who have not applied for their portion
of either of three dividends have been
notified by printed circulars, which have
been read in all the colored churches
that could be reached, to present their
books on or before August 21, I§Bl, or
their claims will be barred thereafter,
and the money distributed to the other
depositors, as provided by the act of
Congress. A dividend of 20 per cent,
was made November 1, 1875, another on
March 20, 1878, of 10 per cent., and a
third on September 1, 1880, of 10 per
cent. The total amount of unclaimed
dividends is $124,715 87. After the real
estate owned by the bank has been sold
it is supposed a dividend of 20 per cent,
can be made, thus returning to the un
fortunate depositors 60 per cent, of the
amount entrusted to the bank, which
owed its depositor at the time of the
failure $2,963,904 89.
Can He Fight Best In or Out !
General Grant has explained that when
Conkling resigned he had no intention of
going back to the Senate—he had been
“insulted” by a Presidential appointment
without his consent, and he meant to
stay out; but no sooner was be out than
he was “jeered” at, called “petulant,”
nay, was openly “attacked,” and being
a “proud” man, he determined to
resent it, to go back to the Senate
and “fight” the administration. As tfce
Democrats are much interested in this
fight, it might be well to inquire which
position Mr. Conkling can do his best
fighting in. Outside, it is evident that
at present he is making poor headway,
and unless he sets up a newspaper and
fires his own artillery, we do not see
much chance of immediate improve
Atlanta Exposition.
From an exposition of cotton and its
fibre in all their bearings, the Atlanta
enterprise has grown almost to the pro
portions of a world’s fair, and Boston,
in her attempt to shoulder what New
York has laid down, will have to look to
her laurels. Secretary Windom has
greatly added to the interest of the expo
sition by a liberal construction of the
tariff laws and consenting to the erection
of a bonded warehouse for the
reception and exhibition of foreign arti
cles. The exposition now embraces all
branches of industry pertaining to agri
culture, commerce and mechanics, and
will present matters of entertainment and
deep interest to all classes and nations.
The President Unhappy.—A lawyer
friend of Gath’s says that Garfield is in a
most unhappy state of mind, afraid that
bis precipitation has at last opened the
breach in the party through which the
Democratic enemy is to enter into a loDg
possession. His wife, who is a woman
of good sense and perception, was
brought to her bed by discerning that he
had split on this rock in the early weeks
of his power. The same authority says
that two or three persons in the Cabinet
are by no means satisfied with the out
look for the party, and expect that the
loss of New York this fall will give them
the whole labor of the past five years to
do over again, even if they ever succeed
in recovering the State after the heart
burnings which have been sown.
Education and the Ballot.—ln its
progress towards free constitutional gov
ernment Italy is about to try an experi
ment which will be watched with in
terest by the enlightened statesmen of
both continents. The government has
formally announced to the Chamber of
Deputies that no scheme would be pro
posed for the extension of suffrage ex
cept to such persons as have received “a
sound, standard elementary education.”
By setting up an educational test for
suffrage Italy may again become a
teacher of the science of government to
the nations, who have long looked upon
her only as the somewhat impoverished
inheritor of the best traditions of art.
Indefensible. —One act of President
Garfield against the stalwarts in New
York is pronounced by both parties as
indefensible. He withheld the commis
sion of Robertson, after appointing him
to the New York custom house, for the
purpose, it is alleged, of retaining him
in the Legislature to aid in the defeat of
Conkling. We are not at all surprised
at -Garfield's course in this matter. It
is good and consistent Republican tac
tics, and Republicaua, at least, have no
right to complain. If it is a violation of
“States rights,” an “intrusion,” no mat
ter-—it ifc m marc than the Republicans
have been doing for twenty years.
New HAsu*suimt Deadlock. —The
reason there is a deadlock in the New
Hampshire proposition to elect a United
States Senator seems to be tb&t Senator
Rollins, whose um expires March 4th,
1883, desires to be his own aorscessor,
and has been doing his best to secure 1
his re-eieoiion by the present Legisla
ture, lest his opposiug colleague, “Billy
Chandler,” should oust him before the
meeting of another Legislature. Billy,
it is said, now wants to be sole “boss,"
and to handle that $50,000 patronage by
himself, while Rollins thicks it best to
secure his re-election while he feels sure
of his friends in the Legislature.
Portable Electricity.
It has already been stated that M.
Faure, a French scientist, by his exten
sion of a discovery made by M. Plante,
has demonstrated his ability to store
away electricity in a box for a considera
ble time without any serious loss in
power, and to convey it to long dis
tances. In the first account given of this
remarkable discovery it was stated that
a box containing one million foot pounds
of stored electricity was taken from Paris
to Glasgow, occupying seventy-two hours
in the journey, and was delivered in
perfect condition to Sir William
Thompson, the eminent electrician
of the Glasgow University. The
latter has since written to the Times
that he had received in the manner
stated one million foot pounds of stored
electricity was an undoubted fact; that
the box contained four cell3, each storing
a quarter of a million of foot pounds,
and that, having discharged one of the
cells, he recharged it again from the
laboratory battery, and found that it
yielded him, after being allowed to re
main undisturbed for ten days, two hun
dred and sixty thousand foot pounds of
electricity. Of its application to.surgical
purposes he cites a case in which his col
league carried away one of the lead cells
in his carriage, and igniting with it the
thick platinum of a galvanic ecraseur, re
moved in one minute a tumor from a
boy’s tongue. He states that this porta
ble electricity can be applied to
illumination purposes, and that a
little battery of seven boxes applied to
the Edison lamps would give an illu
minating power of one hundred candles
for six hours. He says nothing of the
cost, but the process would undoubtedly
be a much more expensive one than that
of gas giving the same amount of light.
But to box up electricity, carry it any
where and put it to a variety of uses is
one of the most astounding facts in his
tory of this mysterious and subtle agency,
and it cannot be doubted that the genius
of other discoverers improving upon
Faure’s method will enable this stored
up energy to be used in the course of a
few months or a few years on a grander
scale, and in ways that science has not
hitherto dreamed of.
A New Element in the Fight.
The New York Milk Dealers’ Union
and the Kings County Milk Exchange
held a joint meeting a few days ago and
passed resolutions protesting against the
election of Chauocey M. Depew as
United States Senator for New York, on
the ground of his identification with the
railroad monopolies of the State. They
say that Depew has for years been using
his influence in Albany to place on
the statute books laws entirely in
the interest of corporations and injuri
ous to the welfare of the people; that he
has also prevented the enactment of just
laws designed to compel transportation
companies to deal justly and honorably
with the people who granted their valu
able franchises. They name no candi
date as their choice, but object to any
who may be identified with the mo
Anxiocß Office Seekers.—The de
plorable extent to which the thirst for of
fice possesses the average American is il
lustrated just now in the Philadelphia
post office, where two hundred applica
tions have been registered for the places
of twenty five auxiliary letter carriers
which are to be added to the force. The
pay of the auxiliaries and substitutes is
S4OO per year, which munificent sum is
on condition that the carrier furnishes a
bond for one thousand dollars, pro
vides himself twice a year with a
new regulation uniform, and solemnly
promises not to contract any debts that
he cannot pay. This is within a fraction
of $7 70 per week, out of which he has
to pay for two new uniforms, and, if a
housekeeper or a man, of family, rent,
fuel, lights and marketing—not as much
as the hod carriers receive for their ser
vices, although it is quite as laborious,
and requires a far higher order of intelli
gence and education. Such an exhibit
of thrist for office is certainly to be de
The Albany Scandal. —Private in
formation received in Washington from
one of the stalwart leaders makes some
startling revelations as to the curiosities
in Albany politics. It is said that they
have the names of six members of the
Legislature that were signally Conkling
men, but who, to the surprise of their
friends, voted for other candidates from
the first, who were bribed to act as they
did. Their price was not paid in
money, but they have been promised
Federal offices as their reward for vot
ing against Conkling and Platt. It is
said now that these men are frightened,
and are hoping the investigation will
stop without taking too wide a range, as
they cannot go on the stand without
either committing perjury or ruining
themselves politically. It is understood
that as soon as they can do so without
exciting suspicion they will break their
bargain and vote for some stalwart.
Electric Light.—The “Southwest,
ern Brush Electric Light and Power
Company” is the name of a company
just incorporated under the laws of
Louisiana, to be domiciled in New Or
leans. The objects of this corporation
are the furnishing of light for illumin
ating cities, parks, buildings and the
like, and the manufacture of the appa
ratus and machinery for producing this
light, for electro plating and for all the
purposes for which electricity may be
used. The principle upon which the
electric apparatus of this company is
based is the Brush system.
The experimental use of the electric
light in street lighting in a portion of
New York city has shown such fluctua
tions in the intensity of the light as ne
cessitate improvements before it can be
generally adopted. The fluctuations are
ascribed to the use of steam power in the
production of the electricity, and it is
proposed to employ batteries instead of
the dynamo electric machines. The ex
pectation is that the change will be not
only economical, but insure a perfectly
steady light in both volume and intensity.
“The rascalities," says the World,
“which, according to recent develop
ments at Washington and Albany, the
Republicans practice upon each other in
a poljtipal way, afford some basis for esti
mating how grossly agd by what devices
of corruption they cheated the Demo
crats in 1876 and 1880. No Republican
capers ought hereafter to be held except
in u room containing busts of M&hone
and Sessions, with an inscription over its
portals; ‘With us tbe pleasure is as
great of being cheated as to cheat.’ ”
The Whittaker Case.—Major Gard
ner, the Judge Advocate in the Whitta
ker case, to a New York Tribune
reporter Monday that he was hipiself the
only person who had authority to trans
mit tfee verdict to Washington, and he
had sent nothing yet, nor would he send
anything until the full record was pre
pared, which wouid not be for a week
at least. The Tribune further says it is
generally believed that the finding has
been adverse to Whittaker.
The Political Influence of Immigra
The political effect of the unprecedent,
ed immigration of this year may well
attract the attention of party managers.
With the two great parties so nearly
balanced, every addition to the present
or prospective voting strength of the
country becomes important. This year’s
immigrants cannot vote in the next
Presidential election, but eventually
their votes will aid in the determination
of political contests. Germany furnishes
a far greater number of the immigrants
now pouring in than any other country,
and the fact has, evidently, not
escaped the attention of the astute
men who direct the general policy
of the Republican party. Hence, the
tendency of that parly all over the coun
try to abandon the Prohibition element
in favor of the German Republicans.
This policy is overt in North Carolina
where the party is to solidly antagonize
a Prohibition amendment in August, in
Ohio where the anti-temperance Gov.
Foster has been renominated, and in
various other localities. Doubtless other
results of the Republican politicians’
study of the tide of immigration will be
come manifest in due time. One point
is certain, viz., that whichever party in
the Northern and Western States omits
to take suitable cognizance of this enor
mous incoming of prospective voters
will “get left” when those men appear
at the ballot-box.
The Great Revision Controversy.
The London Times sums up the great
controversy in England over the author
ized and revised Testaments as follows;
“We are all of us a little too apt to be
run away with by mere literary or anti
quarian sentiment in this matter. We
love the English Bible for its own sake,
as one of the noblest pieces of English in
our literature; we resent change in itself,
and we prefer the old version, even
where it is inaccurate or obscure, simply
because we are familiar with it. If we
find ‘the evil one’ substituted for ‘evil’ in
the Lord’s Prayer, we are shocked by the
change in language, and some of us are
not very ready to welcome the new idea.
But how if the new idea be really the
oldest of all, warranted by the earliest
tradition and plainly indicated by the
Greek text? Even the Lord’s Prayer
cannot be merely what we wish it to be;
it must be what the best interpretation
of the best Greek makes it. Or, again,
we naturally dislike the change of
‘charity’ for ‘love’ in one of the noblest
and best known passages in the New
Testament. But the essential question
still remains as to which word best rep
resents the idea of St. Paul, and best
brings out bis meaning to English read
ers. Not until this question is answered
are we entitled to say which rendering
we prefer. Mere familiarity and the pre
dilection which comes of prescription are
alike out of court in such a matter. We
take, in fact, a totally wrong view of
the nature and purpose of the revision if
we merely count the number of changes
in a given portion and compare it with
the authorized versi >n. The two ver
sions are not to be thus compared one
with another as though the older were
necessarily of greater sanctity and
authority, but each must be compared
with the original Greek text before we
are even in a right position for judging
between the two. And there can be no
doubt whatever, not only that the re
vised version is a great auvance in accu
racy, but that it is simply the most accu
rate and scholarly rendering of the Greek
Testament extant in any language. This
follows of necessity from the manner in
which the work has been executed.
The critical labors of generations and tbe
best scholarship of tbe present age have
been concentrated and brought to bear
on tbe work of revision. Whatever be
its fate, therefore, in popular estimation,
its acceptance as a work of unsurpassed
authority cannot but be regarded as a
touchstone of sound biblical scholar
ship. From this point of view, mere
questions of taste and diction sink im
measurably into the background. Wheth
er the authorized version continues to be •
generally used in churches or not, the
revised version will furnish its best com
mentary and its clearest and most au
thoritative elucidation. Even if the
former is still held by some to be the
better English, the latter must inevitably
be recognized by all the better rendering
of the Greek.”
France and England.—The London
Spectator points out strongly the folly of
straining the friendly relations of Eng
land and France, just because the latter
has played in Tunis a game which Great
Britain is usually playing in three or
four places. It presents a lively view of
the value of the French alliance, and
speaks thus of the consequences of a
rupture: There is not a corner of the
world, not a sea, not a British posses
sion, in which we should not instantly
find our fleets weighted with new bur
dens, our commerce hampered with
new precautions, our colonies worried
with uew fears. And all for what? In
order that we might be safe against a
power from which we want no territory,
which we do not desire to weaken, lest
Germany rule the world, and with
which our permanent interests are near
ly identical. In Europe, in Asia, in
Egypt, we can and do work with France;
and while we so work, lawless ambition
cannot manifest itself, and the objects of
civilization are attained with a tithe of
what otherwise would be most exhaust
ing friction.
One thing which would seem to justi
fy France in literally wiping out the
present government of Tunis is a contri
vance in use in that country for the col
lection of taxes from impecunious or
rascally disposed delinquents and for
wringing confessions from those guilty
or suspected of crime. This device,
which is said to be the invention of the
present Minister of War of that so-called
government, is nothing less than a pit of
venomous serpents, the horrors of which
surpass the wildest dreams of Dante.
This pit or den lies just outside the city
walls, and to the brink of it those
charged with crime or with not paying
their taxes are led. In a deep hole the
unhappy wretch sees a writhing mass of
poisonous snakes, scorpions, toads, and
all manner of loathsome things that
creep and crawl. A glimpse of the
dreadful sight is usually sufficient to ac
complish the purpose the torturers have
in view, but where that fails the wretch
ed victim is forthwith thrown in, and it
is said that a eight of bis sufferings is
certain to secure all that is asked ol his
prospective successor. One would sup
pose so.
The Pennsylvania legislature has ad
journed after a session of one hundred
and fifty days. The constitution ljipits
the sessions to one hundred days, but
permits their extension to one hundred
and fifty days if the public interests de
mand it, The legislators thought this
year the public interests required it,
especially as an act of 1874 allows the
members $lO a day when the session is
prolonged. The* Attorney General of
the Slate announced a few weeks ago
that tflis extra compensation act was un
constitutional, and th® State Treasurer
has declined to pay any mope than the
regular salary of SI,OOO for the session.
The danger now apprehended by the
half breeds at s.U>any is ifl® possibility
that the Conkling faction will join with
the Democrats in procuring an adjourn
ment and remitting the Senatorial ques
tion to the people. Filibustering is
threatened by the half breeds, and
threats of political death are thundered
against all Republicans who vote for ad
journment. 1 Even the Ijjew York Times,
Which, though anti-Conkljng, is nqt a
half breed paper, says, Republi
can voting for such a solution of the
difficulty would have much chance of
being heard of in politics again. ”
Experiments with the Electric Accu
On the 26th of May an assemblage of
distinguished French financiers and other
notabilities gathered in an apartment on
the Avenue de l’Opera in Paris to bear
the results of experiments with Camille
Faure’s prisoned electricity. Two car
riages armed with liis accumulating con
densers started from different points in
the city and rolled into the courtyard of
the house while the people were present.
Other experiments were made with the
Swan patent electric lamps. It was con-
by the application of the
accumulators that the lights could not
only be subdivided, but that a difference
of intensity could be made in the light
at will. Experiments were made with
the Gramme machine which were
especially designed to show with what
amount of economy a certain horse
power could be produced and stored for
use. It was found that with one hun
dred and eight accumulators shut up in
a space of less than two cubic feet and
weighing not more than nine hundred
kilograms (1,980 pounds) a power
equal to that of three or four
horses was obtained which was not ex
hausted after two hours’ use. The fores
necessary to run a street car was found
to be one and one half horse power, and
the experiment is to be put into practice
within a few days. While these things
were discussing a novel scene was wit
nessed by a crowd of people on the
waters of the Seine. A little canoe call
ed the Telephone, fitted with a small ac
mulator, made a number of evolutions
just above the Pont Royal, now running
against the current and again from one
side of the river to the other. Messrs.
Trouve and Gaston Tissandier, construct
ors of an electro motor, were in the ca
noe at the time conducting the experi
ments, which seem to have proved con
clusively the value of Mr. Faure’s dis
A Highwayman Foiled by a Pas
A dispatch from Sau Antonio, Texas,
to the New Orleans Democrat says the
south bound stage on the El Paso stage
line was stepped within five miles of
Fredericksburg at about 9:30 o’clock
Tuesday night by one masked man.
The passengers were ordered to hold up
their hands and tbe driver told to go
through the mail. There were on board
four passengers, besides BrowD, the stage
driver, Jennie Mitchell, John McNeil, a
Californian, Carl HarmaD, a discharged
soldier, and H. T. Thurmond, of
Kickapoo Springs. The passen
gers were then made to
get out of the stage. The Californian
was observed by the robber to be holding
up only his left hand, and was asked
why he did not hold up his right hand
also? The Californian replied: “Come
closer and find out,” having his right
hand on his pistol. The robber then
fired at him, and, grabbing the mail bag,
made for the bushes. McNeil, the Cali
fornian, had with him SSOO in money
and SIB,OOO in checks from San Fran
cisco banks, and was determined not to
give up without a fight. The only booty
the robber got was the through mail
pouch, containing the registered pack
ages. It is not yet known what amount
the mail contained.
Grant’s Last Deliverance.
Chattanooga Times.
Grant says Conk was insulted by the
President and slighted by the Senate.
He was insulted by the President in
the nomination of Robertson, who was
not an humble servant of Conkling.
lie was slighted by the Senate because
that body declined to tie up or refuse to
confirm nominations in New York simply
because the nominees were distasteful to
Conk and ‘ Little Me” Platt.
This is Grant’s political ethics now.
Once, when he had power, his ethics
were very different.
He appointed Simmons Collector of
the port of Boston against the protest of
the entire Massachusetts delegation in
the House except Ben Butler. Simmons’
confirmation was vigorously opposed by
both the Massachusetts Senators. Grant
insisted on the confirmation of Simmons,
and Conk helped it through the Senate
with all his eloquence and magnificent
bullying. Grant and Conk are pretty
fellows to be whining about such “in
suits” ana “slights” as they specify in
their present quarrel!
The rest of the Grant interview, as
given in our dispatches, is simply the
sublimity of impudence. The display of
cheek is enormous; the self-complaisant
style of “claiming” things is even be
yond the usual insolence of the Grant
crowd, and the revelations of personal
communications from General Garfield
socially infamous. None but an essen
tially low-lived fellow, or a man beside
himself with imperial conceit, could
have been guilty of such brutality and
bad manners.
Grant, anyhow, is a pretty figure to
come criticising anybody for tbe faults
he lays at Garfield’s door! Not one
blander or offense he charges to Gar
field, but were heaped mountain-high by
himself in the first year of his Presi
dency. The man don’t seem to know
that he has been overwhelmingly repu
diated by his party and by the country,
and that modest silence is the proper
role for him to play.
Grant acts and talks as if he were
hardly responsible for his conduct and
An Extraordinary Escape.
San Francisco Post.
Readers of the Post will probably re
member that about one year ago a man
was reported drowned by jumping into
the water off the San Rafael steamer
while about to start on her trip at the
foot of Cay street. The man's name
was Albert Mattison, and he was in
charge of the Sheriff of Mendocino
county, en route for San Quentin, to
serve out a long sentence for robbery.
The entire police force of this city made
diligent search for Mattison under the
wharves and along the city front, but
without success. lie had on one foot
an Oregon boot, made of iron,
weighing twenty-five pounds, and it
was supposed for a long time that
he was drowned, as it seemed impossible
that he could escape from the weight
attached to him. It has been ascertain
ed that when he jumped overboard the
tide was ebbing, and that he crept along
under the water a short distance until
under the wharf, when, safe from obser
vation, he waded close in shore. He
found a small boy with a boat who was
gathering driftwood, whom he took
prisoner. Mattison got into the boat and
kept the boy quiet all day. At night be
landed on Broadway wharf, had the boy
show him a blacksmith shop, gave him
$2 50 and dismissed him. At the shop
he procured tools, cut loose the heavy
iron fetters and got away, and has re
cently been heard from in Arizona.
In an interview at New York, the
other day, Elder James H. Hart, of the
Mormon Church in Idaho, said:
“Our people have confidence that Mr.
Garfield intends to confine himself to the
law in flealing with us, and we are also
satisfied that under the law we can vin
dicate our cause. Polygamy is still a
tenet of our chtirch, which” we preach
and advocate everywhere. W® bold to
it as a religious principle, and whatever
influence the laws and existing cir
cumstances may haye upon its
practical adoption our belief wfll remain
Unchanged. The law prohibits murder,
yet it pannot preyent it. So the Jaw may
prescribe polygamy, and still be power
less to swepp it away. In Utah the
church will not come to the front and
acknowledge crime. Each individual
must be personally responsible for his
own acts in the future. The Supreme
Court of the United States has decided
that the law forbidding polygamy is
constitutional. We accept that decision
as the law fit the land- We haye to sub
mit to superior force and num
bers. Polygamy is not practiped
to as great an extent as most
people suppose. I presume that not
tqore than 7 per cent, of the Mormon
males haye tpore than one wife each.
Among the youDg people the practice of
polygamy is not so popular as it once
was. The trouble is that a young man
now-a-davs hesitates some time before he
assumes the responsibilities of marrying
more than one wife. It is a tremendous
undertaking to provide for a numerous
fjtinjjy, intfone wjiich ha3 discouraged
opr young men considerable. Y ou wifi
be surprised to know that in Utah there
are iO per cent. less women Rian wen,’*

We failed to avail ourselves of the op
portunity of advertising the resources of
Georgia at the Centennial Exposition
held at Philadelphia in 1876; let us not
fail to utilize, to the utmost, the oppor
tunity now about to be presented. The
attention of capitalists and emigrants is
being directed to the South and especial
ly to Georgia. Vast numbers of persons
from foreign countries, and from the
other States of this Union, will visit
Georgia during the continuance of the
Let every citizen who loves his State
and desires to see Georgia creditably
represented and illustrated at the ap
proaching Exposition, feel that the re
sponsibility of contributing to the de
sired end rests upon him individually.
Let every citizen of Georgia do his duty,
and no Georgian will need to blush at the
exhibit of the products of her soil.
Georgia possesses a variety of soil and
climate which is not equalled by any
other State in the Union. She numbers
in her list of products those of every
State in the Union. Were she excluded
from the rest of the world she need not
permanently deprive her citizens of any
important article of consumption except
coffee. It is earnestly desired that the
farmers and stockbreeders of the State
demonstrate by their exhibits at the ap
proaching Exposition the capabilities of
the State in every department of pro
ductive industry.
Begin now to collect specimens of
crops already matured and to prepare
stock and crops for the Exposition. Let
county societies take the matter in hand
in each county. At the next meeting of
each society let each member be ap
pointed a, special committee for the pur
pose of enlisting the farmers in the coun
ty in a combined and concerted effort to
illustrate the productive industries of
the county. The premium list will be
arranged and widely distributed, but do
not wait for this; go to work at once
and organize with the determination
that your county shall be properly rep
resented in the Exposition.
If each county will do this, the best
informed Georgian even, will be aston*
isbed at the illustrated resources of his
State, and the representative visitors
from all parts of the world will have an
opportunity of realizing the richness and
variety of our resources.
Success or failure, so far as the agri
cultural display is concerned, will de
pend upon the interest manifested by
the farmers, and the efforts made by
them. Other States are organizing to
display their products and illustrate
their resources. Georgia must put forth
vigorous efforts or lose her boasted
No admission fee will be charged on

An Anti-Monopoly Party.
.Veto Orleans Times.
From time to time there has appeared
in the papers more or less talk about
new parties, and since the headlong
plunge of Mr. Oonkiing out of the bosom
of the Republican fold he has been set
up as the chief priest of the coming new
party. The party, which it is said the
eminent ex-Senator is to bring into the
world and then boss is to be founded on
the principle of opposition to monopoly.
Just what the functions of an anti
monopoly party would be, it is not easy
to see. The corporations and combina
tions of capitalists which control rail
ways, commerce and manufactures re
present a money power which the pro
fessional politician finds far more profit
able to serve than to oppose. Combina
tions which are rich enough to influence
State and National Legislatures to enact
laws and impose tariffs for their advance
ment and protection, and even to secure
favorable decisions in the courts, will be
hard to fight. These great organizations
employ armies of laborers, control the
industries of the country and carry out
gigantic schemes for its development.
They build railways, open ship canals,
establish manufactures aDd direct vast
systems of finance and commerce, and
accomplish results in building up and
developing the wealth and power of the
nation that would be impossible but for
these tremendous aggregations of muscle,
money and mind. They are so power
ful and have become so thoroughly in
terwoven with the industrial, financial
and political systems of the nation that
it appears to be impossible to break them
down and root them out without disor
ganizing the entire social fabric. A
movement honestly designed to break in
pieces and thoroughly extirpate all the
features and influence of American
monopoly would be little less than revo
lution, socialistic and communistic, to
the last degree. It would be originated
in a spirit of benevolence, but it would
enlist the services of the most danger
ous and unscrupulous classes, and arouse
the very worst passions of men.
Such a conflict once inaugurated would
array in opposition to each other tre
mendous and destructive forces, and un
less peacefully settled by some wise com
promise would result in financial rum
and social chaos. The monopoly system
which first fastened itself on the body
politic as a parasite has now become a
part and the biggest part of the political
fabric. It is like that terrible tumor the
cancer, which, when not stopped in the
beginning, but is allowed to grow, fast
ens its claws in the vitals and twines its
tentacles around the very springs of life,
defying the skill of the physician and
presenting to the patient the certainty of
a more speedy death under the knife of
the surgeon than if he should abandon
himself to the natural course of his
Mr. Conkling has been too much asso
ciated vpth the money power to take up
arms against monopolies. The country
is not yet ready for the irrepressible con
flict, and none of the political leaders of
to day would probably be willing to
precipitate it. An anti monopoly party
dees not yet offer a productive field to
the politician; its time has hot yet come!
Information Refused—A Cbauce to
Test the Census Law.
A Washington dispatch says it is
stated at the Census Bureau that there
are nearly three hundred railroad corpo
rations whose otUcers have thus far
either refused or neglected to furnish
the statistical information required by
the census law. If they continue much
longer so to refuse or neglect to perform
their duty in this regard, the govern
ment will be driven to bring
suit against them to enforce the
penalty, which is the payment
qf a sum not less than SSOO nor
more than SIO,OOO, “to he recovered in
an action of debt in any court of compe
tent jurisdictionand in addition there
to every President, Treasurer, Secretary,
general agent or managing director of
such corporations “shall be guilty,”
says the law, ‘‘of a misdemeanor, an<j on
conviction thereof Bhall be imprisoned
for a term not exceeding one year. ” It
is by some railroad companies
that this provision of the census iaw is
invalid. It now looks as though the
government would be compelled soon to
test its validity in the courts.
The particulars of the escape of Billy
the Kid from Fort Blanton, Colorado,
prove him as bold as he is bad. Be is
only twenty-one, slight and boyish in
looks, but "hardened in villany, being
guilty of numerous murders. He was
under sentence of death fpr one of these
crimes. His casual remark. “I shan’t
be there at the hanging,” led to the pre
caution of shackling him heavily and
placing two armed guards over him.
While alone with one of these Billy
felled him with a blow of the manacles
and then killed him with his own pistol.
The other guard was easily shot on bis
approach to the house. The desperado
then died off his irons, mounted a horse,
and rode away in full view of a hundred
men, whom he defled to interfere.
A Fact Worth Noting.
Mobile Register.
The publication of Mr. Davis’ book
has revived denunciations of the doctrine
of secession in the Northern papers.
We have no intention of defending that
doctrine. It is dead beyond the possi
bility of recovery, and all discussion of
it is time thrown away. Mr. Davis’
views on the subject, however, will have
historical interest, and in this light they
should be regarded.
In this connection the St. Louis Re
publican calls attention to the fact that
leading men in New England were the
first to enunciate the doctrine that their
descendants dow reprobate. We of the
South owe much to New England, for
that section has given us many good
citizens in the past, and has set our peo
ple an example of thrift, economy, and
industry, which they would do well to
follow, but, per contra, it cannot be de
nied that the New Englanders of colonial
times outdid the South in trafficing in
slaves, that the New Englander of the
first part of this century" was ready to
talk secession if the general government
was not run to suit him, and that from
New England, in more modern times,
we have received wooden nutmegs, free
thinking in religion, woman’s .rights,
and isms without number.
But to return to the fact that our St.
Louis contemporary calls attention to.
We will go back to 1804, only fifteen
years after the Union had been estab
lished. In that year Colonel Timothy
Pickering, of Massachusetts,successively
Postmaster General, Secretary of War,
and Secretary of State in the Cabinet of
Washington, and for many years United
States Senator for Massachusetts, wrote
as follows:
“The principles of our revolution point to
the remedy—a separation. That this can be
accomplished, and without spilling one drop of
blood. I have little doubt. Ido not believe in
thepraoicability of a long-continued Union.
A Northern confederacy would unite congenial
characters and present a fairer prospect of
Eublic happiness; while the Southern States.
aving a similarity of habits, might be left to
manage their own affairs in their own way.
The separation must begin in Massachusetts.”
Again in 1811 another representative
of Massachusetts in Congress, Hod. Jo
siah Quincy, said upon occasion of the
admission of Louisiana:
“If this bill passes it is my deliberate opinion
that it is a virtual dissolution of the Union;
that it will free the States from their moral
obligation, and as it will be the right of all, so
it will be the duty of some, definitely to pre
pare for a separation —amicably if they can,
violently if they must.”
The Hartford Convention, which con
vened in 1814, was constituted of dele
gates chosen by the Legislatures of the
New England States. Discussing the
variance of interests and antagonisms
of the sections, that conspicuous body
“Whenever it shall appear that the causes
are radical and permanent, a separation by
equitable arrangement will be preferable to an
alliance by constraint among nominal friends,
but real enemies.”
The Hartford Convention, our readers
will remember, was the result of dissat
isfaction in New England caused by the
war iu which the United States was en
gaged with Great Britain. The people
of that section were more anxious for
the protection of their special interests
than for the success of the national arms.
It will be seen, therefore, that the
doctrine of secession was not a plant
whose growth was confined to the
South. It flourished in New England,
just as slavery did, just so long as it
was to the interest of the people to cul
tivate it. Our New England contem
poraries who are pitching into Mr. Davis
in such a lively manner should remem
ber, therefore, that their own ancestors
are responsible for the early develop
ment of the doctrine they now discourse
Oar Ferpetual Indian Wars.
There are symptoms of Indian dissat
isfaction in Colorado, New Mexico and
other points in the West. The Indians
do not go to war without cause. They
have a standing grievance in the bad
faith of our government, in the bold rob
beries of their land, in the swindling of
contractors. Indian wars are rather ex
pensive. The army contractors delight
in them because they can make some
money. Several Indian wars within the
last twenty years have been the work of
contractors who always want paying jobs.
As to the cost of Indian wars since 1860,
the following statement, which was
furnished the United States Senate last
year, is suggestive, and yet it is believed
to be by no means as complete as it
might have been:
"The Quartermaster General furnishes
the following data: In 1868—Southern
Oregon and Idaho, and northern parts
of California and Nevada, Northwestern
expedition, $1,394,190; New Mexico,
$298,849; districts of the plains, $13,-
470,957; Kiowa expedition. $100,703;
California and Oregon, $1,553,816; Re

"1877—Nez Perces, $931,329 02.
"1878-Bannock war, $556,636 19.
"1878-79—Northern Cheyennes, $34 •
209 57.
"The Commissary General furnishes
an approximate estimate, as follows:
The war in Southern Oregon and Idaho

Arizona in 1873, no amount given; the
war against the Kiowas, Comanches
and Cheyennes in Kansas, Colorado,
Texas, Indian Territory and New Mexi
co in 1874-75, $28,330 19; the war
against the Northern Cheyennes and
Sioux in 1876 77, $52,884 55; the Nez

against the Nortnern Chevennes in 1878-
79, $1,694 15; total, $522420 43.

Sherman Defending Grant.
Nashville American.
General Sherman very promptly leaps
to the defense of General Grant in his
attack on Mr. Davis. Misery makes
strange bed fellows and it also loves
company. Grant and Sherman have
fallen under similar criticism recently,
and it is of the utmost importance to
each that both stand, in one respect,
while in other respects, and especially
in regard to Shiloh, Sherman is much
interested in the support of Grant.
Whatever may have been his secret
opinion, he has never said a good
word for Grant before, and his book
rather leans the other way. His compli
ment to Badeau and to Grant was well
timed and wise. These two Generals
have about made up their minds to
divide the war between them, and they
must stand together. Sherman may
also be sure of Grant’s support in the
Shiloh matter. If Grant could destroy
Sherman’s fame with a word, as he could
do were he so minded, Sherman could
also dim Grant’s fame, in so far as it
is dependent upon the facta as to that
battle, and puU him down into the
dust along with him. If Sherman
was surprised, as he was, Grant was
miles away from the field of battle when
he should have been on the ground. Nor 1
is it any excuse that he relied on Sher
man for information. A commander is
held responsible for what is, without re
gard to why it is, and iu pompensation
he is allowed to credit himself with suc
cess, no matter how absurd or erroneous
the movement which led to it. It is
pleasant to see these old comrades pre
paring to help each other out of the
ditch history is digging for them, in
spite of all the Badeaus can do to fill it
up- _
