Tub wind would have to be very strong indeed if it wero to perceptibly accelerate tho speed of a fast train, for even in tho most violent gales it does not blow at so great a rate as fifty or sixty miles an hour, execpt in brief gusts.

It stands, of course, to reason that for a train to bo helped by the wind to any material ex tent it would be necessary for tho wind to proceed at a greater rate than tho train. Gf.n. O. O.

How the I'lillml Stle Mll Ara I J 11 Hwluillt.ru to uli'll Hi" I n wary. Wahiunoto.v, April HI. Tho frauds at tempted by tho use of tho malls ara almost ininmii. rable. They consist of schemes concocted to humbug the un susncctiiiis niiblie, and it seems the greater the fraud the greater tho re turns to the swindler. Nearly all of these schemes make use of advertise ments published in newspapers ami of circulars distributed through the mails. Without these menus tho publiu could not bo reached, and for this reason luw has Im-cii enacted prohibiting the use of the mails for fraudulent pur poses; but It is to be borne iu mind that unless complaints are made to the post office department these frauds cannot be detected ami no investigation can bo had. To give a few Instances of these frauds: A few years ago on advertise' incut appeared iu tho papers stating that for the sum of $1 a recipe would le given for the permanent cure of stam mering. When the dollar was sent the reciiHj was returned, which simply read: "Keep your mouth shut." Another in stance of this kind was where on adver tisement recited that for 50e a recipe would le given for catching b!1 the lish In any given body of water. When the 50c was sent n reciix' would la- returned telling the victim "To dip out all the water and then pick up tho fish. Another form of fraud Is perpetrated by means of advertisement so worded as to mislead the public. Persons answering them think that for 25 cents they aro to havo a watch or some other valuable article, when in fact they mere ly get sonic illustrated catalogue. An extensive fraud has recently la-en carried on by certain persons claiming to be commission merchants or produce dealers, who send out their circulars und price-lists, offering prices higher than the market, when in fact they have no commission house, and probably only desk r.xuu in a shop or salism, and the goods shipped to them are received and sold nt any price obtainable, no re turns whatever ls-ing made. Some time since there appeared it very glowing advertisement of a liook, ex clusively for young unmarried people, lioth gentlemen and ladies, tho price of which was $.". For the $5 a very cheap edition of tho liible was scut A fino time-keeper, with a cut of, would be ad vertised for $1. The sender would ex pect a watch in return, but ho would get a sun-dial. Great frauds have been carried on by the promised publication of handsome illustrated Ixmks, for which photographs of prominent men were so licited. It was added that to have the necessary coper plates engraved would cost $10.75. A surprisingly large num-ls-r responded with photographs nnd money, but of course no books wero published.

Neuor ltlest Guna, to whom the Chilian government a few days ago offered the post of minister at Washington to succeed Scnor Pedro Montt, who will return here to enter congress, luisaecepted theotllce. His ap pointment is subject to confirmation by the commission conservudore which will meet on Monday. The new minister is now in KuroM. The tender of otliec was made to him through tho Chilian minister ut Paris, Scnor Matte. Senor Gano is considered one of the ablest diplomatics iu Chill and is possessed of much personal magnetism. It is believed that he will create a favorable impression at Washing ton. There are excellent reasons for Pedro Montt's return, as a bitter conflict betw een the clerical or conserv ative party and the lilierals is expected immediately upon the reopening of the congressional session. Ho can serve the administration much more efficient ly as a delegate in tho national legisla ture than he could as a minister at Washington, now that the lialtimora unpleasantness has been settled.

Therefore he and hlscolleagueschanged tactics and told Chairman Duiuurov that a loan would be accept:"!. "Not having time to consult the di-n-etoi-y, we did what wo thought was ls-st," said Mr. Winston. Vice-President Higinlsitham, how ever, says the directory will not accept a 1 n. "Chicago cannot afford to put herself in that position," he says. "If the government thinks it is not responsible for any part of the exposition's success, we shall have to go ahead and com plete the work ourselves. We cannot afford to Is irrow from the government that would take away the national character of the exposition and make it appear to lie a private enterprise de pendent on public bounty." Trim V. M.

A field-piece had been hauled from the fort and stationed on u rising knoll and as the hour for the dash drew near tha word went down tho line. Horse men twisted to see that their sadilles were tight sml drivers looked to their harness. ' Just at noon the sharp report of the cannon followed by tho cracks of car bines sounded and the next second tho horses went off. The horsemen sprung away as though they were riding a quurter dush. The wagoners put the whip to t heir boasts. 1 here w us a cloud of dust and the Hood of pale faces sw ept into the country of the red man. I ho soldiers at tho signal put spurs to their horses and flew to get away from the rush behind them. After a ride of a nillo or so they formed a line. Every man seemed to know just where ho was going and headed for his longed-for land without even bestowing a glance of attention to his brother rushers. A few wheels were lost near the line and many more will bo left in the gullies this afternoon, but there were no serious accidents.

A Tint to Kill the Hoy King of Spain Mailo I'lil.lli: Ity Miiiioa, the llynamlte Maker. Mai. inn, April 20. A vast sensation was created here to-day by tho making public of a coufesslon by Muiioz, tho dynamite maker, to tho mag istrate who has charge of the case, that at a secret meeting of anarchists lots were drawn to decide, which mem bers should kill the hy king of Spain. This statement bos caused much anxi ety, and the precautions to guard against any attack upon the king have W-en greatlv added to. Several of the anarchists now under arrest have confessed that an attempt was to bo made to blow up the royal palace, but none until now has acknowledged that a direct attempt up on the life of the king would lie made. With the knowledge that such a con- spiracy docs exist, the authorities will lie able to guard against it. The publio dis-s not know anything f the matter beyond tho fact that Munnx has revealed the existence of the plot to kill the king, but it Is thought that in a very short time every one con nected with It will bo in custody. It is thought that Munoz w ill make a clean breast of his connection with tho an archist movement and by this means seek to escape the life sentence pending over him. A CALIFORNIA SHAKE.

He says: "1 deem this a matter of tho very ut most Imisii'tunce. It uppears to ine to have Im-cii a serious mistake to have made so low an estimate at first, and if this additional amount is not appropri ated we shall have very st rious trouble with these Indians when the want of rations is felt Another year it may bo different, but this year all the rations formerly allowed will I needed." Commissioner Morgan, in a letter which accompanies the document., calls attention to the inopportune oc casion chosen for tho reduction of tho rations, as the allotments to these In dians urtmiearly completed, and tho ad jacent country will soon be opened to settlement to the whites, "which, owing to the fact that nen.-ly all the Cheyenne are discontented with the sale of the sur plus lands, and believe It was not authorized by a majority of their peo ple, will serve as an opisirtuiiity for friction between the whites and In dians, and that everything1 possible should be done to keep the Indians (food-natured and friendly." The amount estimated for the support of these I nolans during the next fiscal year was fixed at 105,000, instead of 1125,000 heretofore allowed them, for tho reason that under their late agree ment with the United States tho sum of (1,000,000 was placed to their credit in the United States treasury, to draw in terest of 5 per cent, per annum, the in terest, (.'.0,000, to be paid to them iu cash per capita.

The production of gold from tha mines of the United Stall's aggregated l,00t,sol ounces fine of the value of 173,000. This is an increase of (:i:!0,000 over the product uf the previous calen dar year. The increased product ia duo largely to improved process of treatment and to the increased amount of gold ex tracted from lead and copjH-r ores. The in-. slue t of (silver from our own mines was fts,!):0,000 fine ounces, of thu commercial value of (57,030,0-10, or of the coining value in silver dollars of (75,410,505. This is an increase of 3,830,000 over the prior year. Tho in creased silver product was due prin cipally to new finds in Colorado and Idaho and to the cheapening of the pro cesses of smelting lead and copper ore bearing silver. The total amount of paper and metal lic money in circulation on January 1, 1H2, exclusive of the amount in the treasury and its branches, was (3,51)2," 303, 0211, against (1,52H,5!H,027 on Janu ary 1, 1S01, an increase of (O.'l.oUU.Ooi.

BEFORE THE SENATE. The New Agreement on the llehrltiff Sea IHspute Itefore the Senate. Washinotox, April 10. Tiro modus vivendi for tho protection of tho Itehring Sea seal fisheries during tlie pendency of the arbitration which has la-en the subject of nego tiation between Mr. Illaine and tho Ilritish minister was brought to the cfipitol about 1 o'clock. For some rea son it was under the injunction of se crecy nnd therefore was not laid before the senate in oimui session. Mr. Sherman, however, was notified by the president of the nature of tho coinmuiiicut ton, and as kin.ii as he could do so he moved that the senate go into executive session. Accordingly tho people were cleared out of the galleries, the d.sirs were closed and then the seals were broken und the modus was read to the Hcnate. The agreement just reached is said to Is- a fair mean between the two ex treme proH.sitions. It uppears that it will, unlike the first inislus, rcouire tho approval of the senate, inasmuch us tin) last document proposes a permanent settlement of damages and provides for the meansof adjusting the claims. The discussion yesterday was gener ally ill the same line that has chaiaeter ized the preceding debates, and some senators called attention to what they regarded as imperfections iu the d.K ii mcnts. It was finally referred to the committee on foreign relations. A LONDON CALAMITY. Appalling- Aeeldeut Caused H.v a Itu-h Tor the t ars Women soil Children ( roshcij to l sill. I.onhon:, April 10.
