3 UTAH'SjMGGLE. She Has a Hard Time to Become the For tv-fifth State. It Has Been Forty-five Years Tryinjr to Get In. DESERET IS NO MORE. Utah Resembles Very Little Its Original Extent. Washington, July 18. Special. Tho forty-fifth t,tato will enter the union Just 45 years to a- month after its first at tempt to Uo so, for it was in December, 1819, that the M irmons culled their first convention to frame a state government, and next December, if the bill is carried cut as it has ju-;, passed the senate, Utah will become a state. It is only by a sort of apostolical succession that this can bo called the state the Mormons first design ed, for the boii'idai i they laid out in cluded '-ail that rnrt of upper California between the di viih r;; summits of the Sierra Nevailas and the Hocky mountains, " and they named tin ir state '-Deseret." Their Intended state cor t: ined all of tho present "Nevada, all of C's dorado v. est of tho sum mit and considerable portions of Wyom ing, Idaho, Arizona and southeastern Cal ifornia. The .Mor iion pioneers reached tho Bite of Salt I,aUe Oiy July 24, 1847, when there were not 1 X'.OOO white Americans vest cf the merkl an of Kansas City, and after many desperate attempts to break into the Union as a state their " Deseret" is no more, and their Utah is tho last of all the northern and central territories to come in. The vicissitudes of the bill pre sent something of a myst ery. A few weeks ago it was announced, as if by authority, that Mr. Cleveland would veto any new fstate, and that the senate would take no action, but suddenly the senate committee took up the I" tah bill and reported it fa vorably, and it now goes through. Never theless it would bo rash to prophesy as to any of the othe:- three territories, and their delegates will only say that" they have hol es. Imporlant Measures. Anions; the measures c.2 really national Importance yet to be decided tho Nica ragua canal bill will doubtless excito great Interest and j.roa.ibly some very earnest discussion. On the general principle that the canal should be built and that the United States should control it there is little or no dissent, but when it comes to the proposition i,hat the United States fchall guarantee t ie bonds, leaving a mar gin of possibly $ i 3, OOo, 0 ,0 for tho promot ers, thcr-.: is a clo;d of humming and haw ing, and the average member who will talk at nil says that the government had better g t rul of its present entanglements with big corporations before it gets into any more. The oft deferred bill to settle the iiuh btetltn'ss of tho Pacific railways furnisher the opponents of the canal with material for much sarcastic comment, and t ridy just now is not a very good time to ask favors in the line of government bonds. Another measure of great national interest is the McUao bill for forfeiting all railroad land grants the terms of which have not been fctrictly complied with. The total involved amounts to 5 !, 32:5, 9lJ0 acres, the greatest section of which is in tho Northern Pacific grant namely, 3G, o, 741 acres and the greatest difficulty, according to the lawyers of loth houses, is that bona fide settlers have taken up much of tho so cal'.ei railroad land on the railroad compai ies terms, relying upon the companies t) perfect tho title. The bouse p,..-,scd it easily, but the railroaders luh at. the idei. t'.iat tho senate will. Tiu-irT Delay. Another impo -tant and greatly delayed measure is tho ( hineso treaty, and the ar rival of M in is. er Charles Den by after some beven years at Piking gave fresh impulse to t he t". iseussior. and was quite an event in Washington society and diplomatic cir cles. The California members are par ticularly active on this and the Nicaragua cat.al. As to the) latter, Mr. Mallory, who has it in special charge, says: 'There is no doubt whatever that the bill reported by me will pass the house if we can ever get it to the front, but, then- is no hope of doing that at th.s session unless the com mittee on rules will name a day for us, ami they are very tlow to do that so late in tho session. Our bill is condensed from several offered on the subject, and, as I think, avoids the points in the senato bill which are mess objected to, or, in other words, it h aves no opportunity for a job. An Interview Repudiated. The labor loaders who recently descend ed upon the cap trl are indignant over the charge that they came to blacklist mem bers wliO vote against their resolutions. All they nsk is that the federal troops be withdrawn; that the George bill for com pulsory arbitration be passed; that tho in junctions, which have lately caused so much talk, be di-jsolved, and that Attor ney General Olney le impeached. They are modest gen-.lemt n. Now that the ex citement is over all parties are having fun with Senator P-ifer. The Populists look coldly on him for his vote on the tariff, the Republicans nre severe on his speech about the strike, tho Dcnux-rats never did like him, and now the critics have fallen on him for plagiarism and misstatements of history. It -somehow happened that a email paragraph in his speech is a repro duction almost word for word of an inter view reported wirh ex-President Harrison. The latter has repudiated the interview, i , which he was reported, as saying that :.ki president bercre Mr. Cleveland had sent troops into a state without the request of the governor, and if the senator actually did bone" the interview he got caught both ways, for the statement is far from true. Among the riany cases cited the most interesting pel haps is that of the John Brown raid on Harper's Ferry. The sei zure was on Sunday night, and before the next night trocps were organized at Wash ington, Richmond, Baltimore and Freder ick, Md. At 1 p. m. John W. Garrett, president of t:e B. and O. railway, tele graphed to Secretary Floyd that the road was obstructed by a strike of the armory men. hy a banl of robbers or by "aboll-tionis-.s." Tho president replied: 'Your dispa-;ch has been received and shall promptly be attended to. Orders Lave been iss je lfor three companies of artillery from Old Point Comfort, and I have already accepted the services of Cap tain Kitchie's company from Frederick. You will hear further from the secretary cf war or nayst It. "James Buchanan." Jxaiediatelj- after this tho njarinea at Washington barracks were started on a special with two 12 pound howitzers, and early Tuesday morning thesa captured the "abolitionists." President Buchanan was soon informed of the capture and imme diately directed District Attorney Robert Ould to proceed to Harper's Ferry and manage the prosecution, and all this was done without request or protest oa tha part of Governor Wise of Virginia. IT COST HIM $20. To rind Out That Black Snakes Are Pond ol Wildcats. 'If it hadn't been that there was a bounty of 93 a head on wildcats, then," 6aid Uncle Joe Vondersmith of York county, Pa., "it wouldn't l ave cost me a cent to learn that black snakes were fond of wildcats. As it was, it cost me 5L0. But I s' pose the knowledge I got was worth the price. "I used to peddle through the lower counties and down through Maryland. Those are great districts for snakes, es pecially black snakes and copperheads. It's fun to see folks doing their haying down through there, especially when they're loading It after it is cut and cured. A man will take up a forkful of dried grass, but; ho won't pitch it on the wagon right away. IIo gives it three or four peculiar shakes to rattle tho snakes out of in. If four or five copperheads don't tumble out, tho man ain't satisfied and gives the hay another shake. It's worth gjing a long journey to see 'em load hay down there. "They never sptak about big black snakes in that country. There's no use of it, because there ain't any little black snakes. At least you never see one un less you call one nine feet long a little one. They don't run much finer than that. If one is killed smaller than that, it is toted around as a curiosity. It was in that stretch of territory that I learned to talk intelligently about the partiality of black snakes for wildcats. I was driving along one day through a scrubby piece of woods near the York county border, and hearing a peculiar noise at tha side cf the road I got out; oi my wagon to investi gate. In a hollow stump I found nine wildcat kittens almost as big as full grown house cats. " 'Ha! ha!' I says. 'Here's $18 for me, sure enough !' While I was busy appropriating the scrambling and scratching young cats out of the woods came the mother of the litter and made right far me. I put two or three pi; tol balls into her, and that was all there was of tho light. ' Have to call it i-20 now,' I says, and I tumbled tho old cat's carcass into the wagon and put tho nine kittens in by her. They snuggled down as meek as mice, and I started o.i feeling good. "I had gone a mile or so when I hap pened to look back along the road and saw a big black streak coming toward me liko a- hurricane. I knew what it was in a second. It was one of the famous black snakes of that district. I put whip to my horse, thinking I might get away from my pursuer, but I didn't know the quali ties of those snakes. This one closed up tho space between us so fast that he was almost at the hind wheels of my wagon before my horse had run five rods. I thought, of course, that the snake wanted me, and I quickly turned over in my mind what was best to be done to save myself. Having often read of travelers pursued by wolves tossing dogs and other things from their sled, us sops to the wolves, thus gaining lime and distance, a happy thought struck me, and I grabbed a wild cat kitten and tossed it out to this snake to see how it would work. Is worked first rate. Tho ncako stopped. I whipped up my horse. Looking back, I saw the snake getting ready to envelop the kitten, and I thought I was saved. But just then out of the woods at one side of the road whizzed another black snake, as big as the first, and went to climbing right up into the wagon. I grabbed another kitten and chucked it out and had to groan a little, for it was another ?2 contribution to snakes. "Then away I went again, hoping to save t he rest of my prize money. By and by I looked back to seo how tho land lay. It wasn't -laying' at all. It was all torn up by four icoru immense black snakes, which were putting in their best liks to catch me, rot nit-re than loo yards in the rear. I threw another kitten out, suppos ing the four snakes would stop and have a squabble for it. But they didn't. One got it, and tho other three c amo right on. And more snakes came out of the woods and joined in the chase. I saw it was no use, and so I stood up, my horse going at full jump, and f d those snakes wildcat kittens until the whole nine were gone and I was f 18 out. 'I was pretty near out of the woods by this time. I could see tho clearings right ahesd. " 'I'll save tho obi dead cut, by gum!' I says, 'and clean up $2 out of this anyhow!' "But I was overhauled by a tremendous big black snake before I got to the end of the woods, and I knew by the humps on him that he had at least two of the kit tens inside of himself already. I hail to give up the old cat and went out of those woods into the clearing a humming. I looked back and saw the whole calxdle of snakes having a gr.-.nd old rough and tumble over the body of tho mother wild cat, but I didn't fetay to see how it came out. So I found out by personal observa tion that black snakes are fond of w ildcats, but it cost me $-0. " New York Sun. Natural MistaUe. One of the oddest experiences that 1 ever had with my st ammering, says a man who hrs an incurable impediment in his speech, happened in the shop of an apothe cary in London. As I was suffering from a stomach trou ble, I went into tho apothecary's to get a little ipecac. "I want some ip ip ip-ip" I stammer ed, unable to get out the rest. "Some what?'' he asked. 'Ip-ip ip" "Hooray!" shouted the apothecary at tho top of his voice. He thought. I was giving him the word to cheer. Youth's Companion. Greatest Xerve In the World.

"Wot s the matter?"

More PartloaUrlr the One of Much II op to zkI Sir. Dflanit. There was very little on the police court docket this morning-. The first case called waa that of Frank Crawford, who was charged with having disturbed a religious meeting-. The case was tried several days ago but the de cision was not handed down until this morning. The judge discovered from the testimony that the meeting waa not a religious one and the prisoner was dis charged. The cases of the three boys tainted with burglarious intentions, Stenman, White and McDowell, were turned over to the state without being called. Henry and Osceola Fay hail from Leavenworth, and two of the toughest looking young fellows that it has been the pleasure of the court and its attend ants to investigate for several years. They were only about fifteen and seven teen years old, and were not only ragged, but dirty. They were charged with vagrancy, but claimed to be on their way to visit their sister who it is to be honed will rnnk'A t h An, tnk-ft i hath nm-i I were released. The case of Mr. W. E. Dennis was an nounced. Mr. Dennis had a pair of trousers stolen from him by the boy thieves, Sunday, and felt so bad about it that he concluded as many better men have done to mere sorrow to drown his tribulations in hop tea that would hop. He did aud Mr. Hicks, the brunette of the force, found him badly jagged at the corner of Fifth and the avenue last night at an unseemly hour. He very kindly offered him a bed and what could Mr. Dennis do but accept his kindly hospi tality'1 Mr. Dennis did not like to ap pear too ha3ty in accepting the extend ed invitation, and remonstrated to the extent that true delicacy allows, but Mr. Hicks would not take no for an answer and the result was that Mr. Dennis was present at the morning function given by Judge Eusminger today. As Mr. Dennis slowly realized the great honor that had been done him tears of joy and gratitude welled in his eyes aud he begged oh so hard to be ex cused that the judge commuted the fine to $3. Still was Mr. Dennis' heart torn with conflicting emotions due to house rent, sickness in his family and hop tea and his importunities finally reached Judge Ensininger's heart to the extent of a dis charge. Mr. Dennis left the court room with promises of total abstinence and a dirty shirt. The much continued case of Henry Edition and liichard Morrison, charged with disturbing the peace, was called but the witnesses were not present, in cluding a couple of policemen, and as the judge was tired of the case, anyway, the defendants were discharged. The next case called was the James McCoy liquor case, and as the witnesses to this case were also delinquent, it was continued until tomorrow morning. This settled the police court grind for today. PAYMENT DEFAULTED. AVyandotte County Doet Not Pay lis Koad C,rl lilcates and is Sued. Two suits have been filed in the United States circuit court against the commis sioners of Wyandotte county. One is brought by William H. Garland of Ari zona, for $7,00;), and the other by Wil liam D. Lent of New York for $4,500. The suits are brought to recover on road certificates issued by Wyandotte county under the law of 1837, which provided that counties could issue scrip to pay for improvements on roads. The payment on the scrip has defaulted and the suits are brought to enforce the pay ment. NEW CHARTERS.

They were arrested at Leaven worth last night by the police there, on the chargo of wearing concealed weap ons. Sheriff Burdge is armed with a war rant charging them with burglary and grand larceny.
