The reduction in the pay roll of the Agri
cultural department for the month of May
wasaJittb) over $3,000 as compared with
Srevious month's average. Additional re

500 has bnen made and others are thought
to be inevitable in order to prevent a defi

The United Siates select committee on
inter-state commerce heard tbe testimony
of W. K. Ackerman, ex-president of the
Illinois Central railway, and Burton C.
Cook, of the Northwestern railway at Chi

government railroad commission with
power to settle deputes between railroad
shipper?. It should not, however, be a court
of last resort. Mr. Cook thought the pres
ent depression among railways was due to
over production, aEd that dividend paying
roads were seriously hampered by the
bankrupt lines pursuing the practice of al
lowing rebates and constantly demoraliz

her knitting; she began to quarrel with him
and he caught her by the throat and they
both fell out of the kitchen together. His
wife did not get up; he went and got his
razor and when he put it to his wife's
throat the put her hand on his, and the
razor cut his throat. He thinks he pushed
the razor hard enough without her help to
cut her throat several times. He says tney
may now cut his head off if they wish.

Since the incoming of the new adminis
tration the heads af the various depart
ments have received numerous applica
tions for office without any specification
as to what particular office the applicant
desired, and a letter was sent from the
White House in answer to a communica
ttun from a gentleman in Philadelphia,
who inquired as to the proper method of
filing an application for office. The reply
is of interest to all seeking places under the
government, and it is given to the press for
publication. It says: To secure attention
to an application tor appointment, a particu
lar position should be named. When this
is done, the papers are filed in the proper
department, and when the matter of the
candidates and a brief of the endorsement
are laid before the President by the head of
the department.
In response to an inquiry by the at
torney general, -respecting the counter
claim of tho United States for five per cent
of the net earnings of the Kansas Pacirc
railway, in the suit pending in the court of
claims netween the Union Pacific railroad
company and the United States.thesecretary
of the interior, after discussing the difficul
ties surrounJing the attempt to ascertain
the exact earnings of the added portion of
the Kansas Pacific, says: "Upon the whole,
considering the ascertainment of the actual
earnings up to the close of the period fixed
in this suit, a9ptactically beyond reach,
under existing circumstances, L am inclin
ed to recommend that the millage basis be
accepted for the purposes of the pending
case. Ah a final judicial determination to
that date, but with tbe distinct understand
ing that for nil subsequent adjustment, the
government will insist upon the actual
earnings of the 293 15-16 miles, and will
require such account to be rendered as will
show the earnings month by month, as the
same have accrued or shall hereafter ac
crue. Brakemen on the Baltimore & Ohio rail
road are on a general strike. The trouble
is not on account of wages, but simply the
result of a reduction of forces on freight
trains. A general reduction was made, re
moving the front brakemen of all freight
trains drawn by "Mogul" engines. Efforts
were made to send out trains with two
brakemen. The brakemen claim that the
state law requires one man for every ten
cars; "Mogul" engines usually draw thirty
cars. When the men saw that two men
would be requited to manage the train, re
fusal was made to go out and the trains
were kept at a standstill. An attempt
by tho officials to send out a train
resulted in the brakemen con
gregating together, pulling the pins and
cutting the train into twelve parts and
threatening injuries to persons. One official
drew a revolver and threatened to shoot,
and for a time it looked as though a riot
was imminent. Two leaders of the strike
have been arrested and placed in jail, but
they were soon released by the advice of
the company's attorney for fear their con
finement would lead to greater excitement
and further trouble. Conductors refused to
go out without their
regular crews and
thus another obstacle was presented.
There are about three hundred brakemen
on the strike, and all are determined.

The Department of Agriculture.
From the Washington Capital.
We have noticed recently some criti
cisms and attacks upon the administra
tion of the late Department of Agri
culture which have seemed a little sur
prising, not only because of the lack of a
good foundation to base them upon but
because of the source from which they
appear to eminate. One ot the charges
which is brought against the administra
tion of the department by Commissioner
Loring is that too much of the annual
appropriation was expended by him and
his subordinates previous to the 1st of
April, leaving an insufficient sum for the
balance of the fiscal year. The truth is, as
we understand it, that the entire unex
pended balance of the appropriations
April 1, 1885, was somewhat larger than
it was on the same day in 1884. The
money was appropriated to be spent
when it could be used to the best ad
vantage to the agricultural interests of
the country, and it was so used. It
might as well be argued that it was the
duty of Commissioner Loring to suspend
all operations last autumn, when he
found a Democratic President was
elected, and wait, without doing any
thing more, for his successor to be ap
pointed. We think it quite likely that the new
Commissioner, Mr. Colman, may be able
to make changes in the personnel of his
department which will improve its ef
ficiency, but this will not disprove the
fact that the reputation of the depart
ment was greatly improved during the
official term of the late Commissioner.
It might as well be admitted, because it
is true, that the work of the various divi
sions was enlarged and systematized and
perfected by Dr. Loring, and the useful
ness of the department was never so
widely leit ana recognized as now.
We believe that the statistical reports
of the department on crops, markets
and labor questions are now accepted as
authority both here and in foreign coun
tries; and, in fact, they are regarded as
models of this form of estimate and cal
culation. The department has come in
to intimate relations with scientific
scools and associations in Europe, and
its conclusions have come to be regarded
as reliable and useful by scientific men
abroad. Among tbe things that may be
mentioned as especially notable in its
recent work are the experiments in the
production of sugar from sorghum,
beets and other sugar-producing plants;
the inquiries into the habits
of insects injurious to vegetation and how
to destroy them; the efforts to ascertain
the nature and extent of contagious ani
mal die eases in the country, and bow to
control and prevent them. These are
the questions which engaged the atten
tion of Commissioner Loring, and in
dealing with which he has been sup
ported by increased appropriations by
Congress, as has also been the case in
his statistical work.
He has been criticised for going so
much about the country to address agri
cultural meetings, but we fancy that this
criticism does not come from anybody
who is interested in the subject of agri
culture. He has responded to all calls
in his direction, and in addition has,
from time to time, assembled conven
tions for agricultural investigation at the
department: has issued the annual report
with unusual promptness, and, so far
as we know, has responded to all calls
upon him from the agriculturists.of tbe
country. In carrying on this work it has
not been possible at all times to maintain
a uniform force of employes in the de
partment. The sending out of seeds, for
instance, is a work which does not need
to go on all the year round, but the heeds
must be purchased and delivered at
certain seasons. Of course, the
appropriation was bound to be ex
hausted before the end of tbe fiscal year,
and it usually ha3 been. It is absurd
for the people who are trying to make
much out of little to bring any charges
against the honesty of the Jate Commis
sioner. The truth is, that the work of
the department is going on very much
as usual, and will do so to the end of the
present fiscal year. Whatever may be
said about his administration, it cannot
be denied that Dr. Loring left his de
partment in a better condition than he
found it, and his services to the agricul
tural interests of the country are not
likelv to be disputed or ignored by the
farmerand scientific men of the country
who understand what he has accom
plished. The "Wichita Beacon says that a large
delegation from that city will attend the
G. A. R. reunion at Portland.
