the stomach and nervous system, their exquisite taste

Good work may fairly be expected from
the next Legislature. There will be plenty
of good material in the House. Prominent
as a leader on the Republican side will be
Hon. Lynde Harrison of Guilford, who was
a member in 1874, 1875, 1876 and 1877, be
ing Speaker in 1877. E. At Herriman, of
Meriden, an able member of the last House,
will be a useful member of the new House.
Hartford county sends Hon. John L. Hous
ton of Enfield, Hon. William C. Case of
Granby, Charles E. Mitchell of New Britain,
W. M. Wadsworth and S. Q. Porter of Far.
mington and Lewis Whitmore of Rocky Hill-
Tolland county sends among others Milo W.
Pember of Vernon and E. P. Skinner of An-
dover. In New London county Norwioh. will
be well represented by John P. - Barstow.
Stiles T. Stanton of Stonington, the present
executive secretary, is another of the good
members from New London county. Among
the members from Middlesex county are C.
M. Whittelsey of Old Saybrook and George
A. Olcott of Clinton, both of whom have had
legislative experience. The most prominent
members from Windham county are John M.
Hall of Windham and Colonel Charles L.
Dean of Ashford. From Fairfield county
there are David B. Booth of Danbury, who
has been clerk of both houses, the Hon. Tal
madge Baker of Norwalk, our present State
Treasurer, and John H. Perry of Fairfield.
Among Litchfield county Republicans in the
House there will be N. Taylor Baldwin of
Plymouth, Aaron Thomas of Thomaston, a
leading member of the Seth Thomas Clock
company, and George Dudley of Winchester.
On the Democratic side will be Hon. Ori-
gen S. Seymour of Litchfield, who will of
course have great influence. Other promi
nent members on the Democratic side are
Judge Luzon B. Morris of New Haven,
ex-Mayor Sprague and Mahlon R. West of
Hartford, and Albert T. Burgess of New Lon
don. Talk about the speakership is already
growing lively. Naturally, Hon. Lynde Har
rison, who made as good a speaker as the
House ever had, is mentioned, but we are
authorized to state that he has no idea of be
coming a candidate for the place. Others
mentioned are Hon. William C. Case of
Granby, Hon.' John M. Hall of Windham,
Hon. John L. Houston of Enfield, and Hon.
John H. Perry of Fairfield, who was a mem
ber of the House in 1877 and 1878. All of

The popular idea is that crime has greatly
increased in New York city during the last
few years, but this idea does not seem to
have a basis of fact. During the last five
years the population of the city has increased
by at least 70,000 persons, yet crime has de
creased some 25 per cent. The total arrests
have fallen from 84,399 in 1875 to 65,344 in
1879, and the commitments from 54,655 in
1875 to 42,879 in 1879. This has been, too,
a steady decrease only varied by the num
ber of Excise cases in 1876. It has not de
pended on the times, but has gone on in bad
years and good years. The arrests run thus,
beginning with those of 1875 : 84,399, 87,
309, 79,865, 78,533, 65,344. The commit
ments show the same regular diminution, ex
cepting in the year of the execution of the
Excise law, thus: 54,655, 57,084, (1876,)
51,696, 51,786, 42,879. In examining partic
ular offenses, we find that male "felons" ar
rested have fallen off from 4,160 to .2,908,
and females from 578 to 402. Burglars have
diminished among males from 780 to 679,
and females from 20 to 7. The cases of as
sault and battery have fallen from 514 to
477, of grand larceny from 1,263 males to
809, and from 274 females to 170, and of
larceny from the person from 728 to 557.
Mr. Bergh has evidently Lad influence, for,
among misdemeanors, cruelty to animals has
fallen from 295 to 273. The number of pet

700, (the scale for five years not being giv
en;) of those arrested for disorderly con
duct, 1,423 ; of intoxicated persons about
3,000 ; of vagrants a falling off of 390 in one
The statistics of crime in New York city
do not show that the worst crimes and mis
demeanors are committed by the foreign
born, though it is believed that nine tenths
of the criminals who give their birthplace as
the United States are of foreign parentage.
In assault and battery, cruelty to animals,
and disorderly conduct, the American-born
are in the plurality, while in petit larceny
they exceed by over 1,000 the Irish or the
Germans. In vagrancy, too, they run far
ahead. Only in intoxication do the Irish
lead by an enormous majority, the Germans
only showing 824, against 7,803 Irish. In
fact, if numbers be considered, the Germans
are proved much the most law-abiding of all
nationalities by the police reports of New
York city.

The constitution of Michigan requires the
levy of certain taxes to pay the interest and
principal of the State debt. The increase of
wealth has been so great' in the State that the
money raised annually is greatly in excess of
the amount required. The result is: that
more money is in the treasury than is re
quired to pay the principal and interest of
the entire State debt ; but the bonds do not
mature till 1890, and the creditors refuse to
receive their pay. Meantime the tax must
be levied annually. It is now proposed to
amend the constitution so as to avoid this un
necessary tax.
The Massachusetts Railroad Commission
ers hare reported against the elevated railroad
project for Boston. They decide that the
Massachusetts law does not provide that the
company shall have the route which it pre
fers or that which is the most profitable;
and seeond, that the law forbids the granting
of any route running longitudinally in or
through any street, townway or highway.
The Commissioners say that if the promoters
of the road demand it they must grant routes
between the termini mentioned gin the peti
tion, but the route cannot run in any street
or avenue, any park or common, or on any
existing bridge. Such route cannot be taken
without full compensation to property-owners
for the land taken, and all incidental damage
to property must also be paid for. Every
land-owner can require security for damages,
and his land cannot be entered until the
security is given. This is mentioned, the
Commissioners remark, "to quiet the ap.
prehensions of those who might suppose that
the grant of a route insured the immediate
construction of a road, and of others who
may believe that a road costing many mil
lions of dollars can be begun on a subscrip
tion of forty thousand." The conclusion of
the Commissioners is simply this, they will
conform to the strict requirements of the
law, but the route which they will grant will
not be one over which any road would be
likely to be built. Those who would be dis
turbed by trains running by their second or
third story windows at all times of the day

The following information is from advance
sheets of the annual report to the Chamber
of Commerce of Sidney D. Maxwell, super
intendent. "The past year has brought the largest
production in malt liquors that has
ever been witnessed in this locality, the
aggregate having reached in this city
alone 655,520 barrels.compared with 558, 709
in 1878-9, 550.518 in 1878, 475,212 in 1876-7,
476,228 in 1876-6, 452,177 in 1874-5, 465,886
in 1873-4, and 467,790 in 1872-3. The cities
of Covington and Newport produced in the
last year 52,800 barrels, compared with 47,
740 in 1878-9, 44,470 in 1877-8, 38,204 in 1876
7, and 49,586 in 1875-6. The three cities
produced for the late year, in the aggregate,
708,320 barrels, or 21,957,920 gallons, in
comparison with 606,449 barrels or 18,799,
919 gallons in 1878-9, and 594,988 barrels, or
18,414,261 gallons in 1877-8. an increase in
the past year over 1878-9 of 101,871 barrels
or 3,158,001 gallons.
"The year, in some respects, has been an
unsatisfactory one to brewers, and therein
has been unlike the preceding season. Bar
ley has been here in liberal quantities and at
satisfactory prices, but hops and ice have
both been high, and labor has averaged about
ten per cent, more than in 1878-9. Added to
this has been much irregularity in prices, and
while the price for lager beer has been nomi
nally maintained at $8 per barrel, in many
instances sales have been made at lower
rates, much having found a market, under
the tremendous competition, at $6 per bar
rel. An effort was made in the spring to ad
vance prices to $9, but it was ineffectual.
The demand, at the prices, has never been so
great in the history of the trade here, all
the breweries having been running to their
full capacity. It is believed by intelligent
observers that, with a much larger capacity,
all would have found the most active em
ployment. That under such circumstances
there should have been great irregularity in
prices and unsatisfactory business, is some
what anomalous. The condition was proba
bly traceable more to a healthy understand
ing between producers than to any other, or
all other causes combined.
"These figures show an important increase,
measured by considerable periods, in the
growth of the business in this city. In six
years the production here has increased over
44 per cent. The increase over the year im
mediately preceding was 96,810 barrels, or
about 17 per cent The increase in the lat
ter period is traceable to some extent to an
enlargement of the area of distribution, es
pecially in the South, where, through the
agency of the Cincinnati Southern railway, a
new demand has sought supply. The in
increased demand for local consumption has
had, however, no little to do in the important
growth of the business. It is not possible to
arrive at the actual quantity consumed in
this city and its immediate vicinity, but the
records of the Merchants' Exchange show,
after deducting from the production the ship
ments from the city, which for the year
amounted to 200,887 barrels, exclusive of
such beer as went out in bottles, which would
find ample compensation in the beer re
ceived from manufacturers elsewhere, the
sum of 507,443 barrels remaining for
the consumption of residents and visitors,
which, according to the usual allowance,
would swell the consumption to the amazing
aggregate of the equivalent of 202,973,200
glasses of the usual size. In the production
of malt liquors there were consumed in the
three cities in the past year, approximately,
1.722,280 bushels of malt, 1,398,896 pounds
of hops, and 55,000 tons of ice, the last
named averaging, approximately, $5.50 per
ton. The figures as to the consumption
of malt and hops are from actuaLreturna
made to the Revenue department, allowing
for Covington and Newport the average ex
hibited by the returns made for Cincinnati.
' 'The increase in the outward . movement
of beer, embracing all kinds of malt liquors,
exclusive of such as was transported in
bottles, has been 38,294 barrels, or about 23
per cent., while, since the year immediately
preceding the rebellion, the shipments have
grown from 22,581 barrels to 200,887 bar
rels, exhibiting since the census of 1860 tne
enormous increase of 789 per cent."
Oatgrowlng One's friends.
From the Golden Bule.
There are men and women in public
life whose pathway is marked by the
"remains' of whilom friends whom they
have squeezed dry and dropped, like so
many sucked oranges. In polities it is said
of such a man that he is kicked down the
ladder by which he climbed. In literary or
other walks of life the human sponge often
swells up with the thought that he has "out

In private life the self-conscious soul contents
itself with becoming more and more the cen

within its orbit who will not censeut to re
volve around it and emit light and warmth for
its enjoyment. There have been many noble
definitions of what a friend is. People of real
individuality, strength and sensitiveness,
doubtless have fewer real friends than they
are apt to think, unless they have been
cherishing, unconsciously, low ideals. But
whatever a friend may not be, certainly that
sweet and noble term is unmerited by one
who, however generous in other directions,
is selfish of himself.
Fires that Cannot Be Quenched.
Coal Mines that have Burned for Forty
Years. The failure of all the attempts toexingulsh
the fire which has been raging in the Keeley
Run colliery for several weeks, says a Potts
ville, Penn., dispatch, it is feared, will add
another to the perpetually, burning mines
that now exist in the Pennsylvania anthracite
regions. The greatest of these is probably
that in the jugular vnin, near Coal Castle, this
county. This has been burning since 1835.
Louis F. Dougherty opened this vein in 1833.
The upper drift of the mine was above the
water level, and a huge fire was kept in a
grate at the mouth of the mine in winter to
keep the water from freezing in the gutters.
One night in the above year the timbers of
the drift caught fire from the grate. When
it was discovered the fire had been carried
down the air hole to the lower drifts, and
was beyond control. Two miners entered
the mine, hoping to recover their tools.
They never came out. The mine was aband- .
oned. No efforts were made to mine any of
the coal near the burning vein, although it was
considered the best coal in the region, until
1856. Then John McGinnis put in a slope
on the east side of it, below water level.
He struck the vein at a place where the coal
was so thick that two miners could keep a
large breaker supplied. When 400 yards of
gangway had been excavated the heat from
the burningJDougherty mine began to bother
the miners. McGinnis attempted to open
an air hole. The heat became so great that
the men were paid double wages to induce
them to work. They worked entirely naked,
and were relieved every ten minutes. Final
ly the heat became so intense that work was
abandoned. The mine was flooded. After
being pumped out, men could work for a few
days. The mine was flooded nine times.
McGinnis finally failed, and the mine was
then abandoned. The fire has been burning
ever since. An area of half a mile in every
direction has been burned. No vegetation
grows on the surface. In places the ground
has caved in, forming chasms a hundred feet
deep. There is but a very thin shell of earth
over the pit of fire. At nitrht blue sulnhnr-
ous flames issue from the crevices in the
ground. It is dangerous to walk across the
spot. Several persons have mysteriously
disappeared in the vicinity during the past
twenty years. It is believed that in the
majority of cases they have fallen into the
burning mine. Dougherty the original
proprietor of the mine, attempted to go
across once. He sank to his armpits through
the crust, and was only saved by couragous
friends who ventured to his assistance. The
stones on the ground are hot, and snow never
rests there. Rain turns to vapor as fast as it
falls on the roof of the burning mine.
Millions of dollars' worth of the best quality
of coal have been consumed by the fire.
The Summit Hill mine, near Mauch Chunk,
has been burning twenty-five years. It is be
lieved to have been set on fire by discontent
ed miners. Thousands of dollars have been
expended in fruitless efforts to extinguish the
The Butler mine, near Pittston, has been
burning three years. It was set on fire by a
party of tramps, who built a fire in the mine
in 1877. The fire is in the upper drifts. It
is confined to an area of forty acres by an
immense ditch forty feet wide, which was ex
cavated between the burning drift and con
nected ones. The digging of the canal cost
$50,000. But for that obstacle the fire would
have communicated to some of the most ex
tensive mines in the Lackawanna valley, and
a subterraneous conjugation would have
Bwept under the whole of West Pittston.
Miners have worked in the lower drift of the
Butler mine since the fire broke out, but
there are but forty feet of rock between
them and the field of fire above. The water
that trickles through the roof is scalding hot.
The tempearture is so high that the men can
wear but little clothing.

A Detroiter who was traveling in Isabella
county on business last week was approached
by the leading citizens of a small vill age and
asked to make a political speech in front of
the hotel in the evening. When he asked
what Bort of a speech they wanted the spoke
sman replied :
"Well, we are sort o' split up here. We've
got some democrats, some republicans, a few
greenbackers, one or two communists, and
about a dozen men who don't hang to any
party nor believe in God. We'd like a neutral
speech. Don't hit anybody, but make al
feel good. Wo are going to make up a sh all
purse to buy candles and hire music, and all
must be treated alike. "
The Detroiter thought the matter over and
concluded to oblige. When evening came he
was the nero of tne nour. There was quite a
respectable gathering, general good feeling,
and he was introduced with a grand hurrah
It was impossible to make a political speec h
umder the restrictions imposed, and ho, there
fore, hoped to get away with them on oratory
When all were ready he began :
"As great and grand as is our country as
rapid as has been its increase as amazing as
have been its inventions we may look to
the future for great results."
This was considered pretty good, and he
was' given three cheers and a tiger. Feeling
enthused, he went on :
' -Fires may rage floods may come famine
may cast its black shadow over the land war
may sound its loud wail, but nothing "
Here there were yells, whoops, cat-calls,
hisses and hoots, and the crowd melted away
like frosted cake at a picnic. The Detroiter
was thunder-struck. One man was still left,
and to him he appealed for the excuse for
such singular conduct.
"Well, you see, the boys have been caught
on this once or twice and it has become old."
"Caught ! Old ! What do you mean f"

A Buffalo lake captain, when interviewed
regarding his experience of the great gale of
two weeks ago, answered that he spent more
than an hour in prayer. A Chicago captain
said he was made to feel what an awful sin
ner he was. A Clevelander replied that he
made a solemn vow to quit swearing in case
he. was saved. An interview was held with a
Detroit captain yesterday to see how he felt.
It started off as follows :
"You were in the great gale, were you ?"
"I was."
"As the eale increased, the seas grew high
er and your foretop mast was broken off, did
you realize what a miserable old sinner you
were 1"
"No, sir. My time was occupied in clear
ing away the wreck and thinking how the
owners would blast my eyes."
"By and by, when the seas swept your
decks and carried off your yawl at the davits,
did you make any vows ?"
"1 did not. 1 told tne mate tnat we'd got
to square off and run before it, or we'd all be
in in less than 20 minutes."
"You meant Texas, did you not ?"
"I did. I knew we were headed directly
for Texas, with the seas piling right over us."
"Did vour mate suggest Holding a prayer-
meeting or singing any gospel hymns ?"
r ot Dy a gone signc : no suggesteu uias
we'd better be mighty lively about paying off
or the infernal old tub would be at the bot
tom of Lake Michigan."
"When the awful voice of the gale roared
in your ears, and the mountainous combers
rushed down as if to bury you from sight,
did you have the least thought of making a
vow to quit swearing if you were spared t
"No, sir : on the contrary, 1 believe I
Swore faster than usual. I was in a hurry to
get her around."
As tne wneei was put over ana sne reu
into the trough of the sea for a moment,
where were your solemn reflections ?"
' 'Well, sir, l solemnly reflected tnat if tne
blasted old sticks ever wanted to play dirt on
me then was the time to do it."
"When you got squared away before the
wind did you tell your crew that they ought
to return thanks to Providence for having
escaped certain destruction ?"
"No, sir. I told 'em to ask the steward for
about three fingers of good whiskey apiece
and then turn in all standing."
' 'Do you feel that you have any particular
cause to be thankful?"
"I do. The elevator men in Buffalo didn't
steal but forty bushels of wheat out of this
last trip, while on the other they took ninety
one ! I am very thankful for that fifty-one
bushels, and shall strive to be a better man
hereafter. Take tuntbjn', sir ?"
