[Special Telegram to the Globe. 1 Nkw Yobk, Jan. 2G. —A London cable to the Sun says: Chinese Gordon has taken the place of Khartoum as tbe main arbiter of the fate of Egypt and Mr. Gladstone. Already things have assumed a more favorable turn. Some natives pro fess that Gordon's presence alone will de moralize the Mahdi's forces, and that he will so stiffen the Khartoum garrison as to make tham baffle a siege. The reports from the city are now peaceful, but Gordon goes without escort through the desert, and cannot reach his destination under eighteen daj3, and the whole future is really aB uncertain as ever. Meantime the scores of speeches just delivered forecast the opening days of the session. The government will try to force on business; the oppesition will insist on lengthy discussions of the Egyptian policy and other subjects in the addres?, and as a result the liberals will denounce the con servatives as obstructives, while tho con servatives will retort by vituperating the foreign polioy of the liberals. The only two speeches worth noting are Dilke's and Churchill's. Dilke made the imprudent admission that the government had desired to dispctoh Gordon months ago, and the conservatives are taking this up as proof of a vocillating polioy. Churchill made an extraordinary clever but coarse and merciless attack on Glad stone, describing him as having a Barnum like talent for advertising everything about himself, his recreation and his prayers, and gave an intensely comic pic ture of good ohurohmen having to seek the refuge of jdissenting ohapels because of the influx of strangers to hear Mr. Gladstone read Job or Isaiah.

The adoption by the senate of the resolution granting the'membere of that body who do not enjoy the advantage of being a chairman of com mittee, the right to employ private clerks at the session with a "salary of $6 per day, has given rise to some talk among the members of the house, and the advisability of a similar provis ion being made for the benefit of thw representa tives. Kelford started the ball rolling by a short speech a day or two ago, in which he stated that nearly the whole of > is salary was paid out for clerical services.

It is doubtful whether he will succeed in his object unless he can make it appear the resolu*ion involves a question of privilege.

Accident Insurance Most .Required by Thosa Who Never Travel. artlsas Discoveries Made by a Sus picious Individual While Kelv- ._ ins Among Statistical Facts and Figures. [Mark Twain.] \ The man in the ticket office said: '•Have an accident insurance ticket, also?" "No,"' I sfiid. after studying the matter over a little. '\N'o. I believe not; lam goics to b j trav?lir # -; by rail all day to-day. How ever, to-morrow I don't travel. Give me one i for to-rriorrow." The mau looked puzzled. He said: "But it is for accident iusurance, and if you ai-e going to travel by rail—'" "If I am going to travel by rail, I sha"nt neoil it. Lying at home in bed is the thing I am afraid of."' I had been looking into this matter. Last year I travel- d 20, 000 miles, almost entirely by rail; the year before. I traveled over 25, --300 miles, half by sea and half by rail; and the year bef.rj that I traveled in the neigh borhood of 10,090 milt's, exclusively by rail. , I suppose if I put in all the little odd jour i neys here and there, I may say I have traveled GO.OW miles during tho three years I have mentioned. And never an accident. [ For a good while I said to myself every morning: "Xow I havo escaped thus far, [ and so the chances are just that much;in creasei that I sliall catch it this time. I will be shrewd, and buy an accident ticket." And i to a dead moral certainty I drew a blank, and went to bed that night without a joint , started or a bone splintered. I got tired of that sort of daily bother, and fell to buying accident tickets that were good for a month. I said to myself, UA man can't buy thirty i blanks in one bundle." But I was mistaken. There was never a prize in the lot. I could read of railway ac cidents every day—tne newspaper atmos | phere was foggy with them: but somehow they never came my way. I found I had spent a good deal of money in the accident ; business, and bad nothing to show for it, ■ My suspicions were aroused, and 1 began to hunt around for somebody that had won in this lottery. I found plcuty of people who had invested, but not an individual that had ever had an accident or made a cent. I stopped buying accident tickets and went to ciphering. Tho result was astounding. The peril lay not in traveling, but in stay ing at home. I hunted up statistics and was amazed to find that after all tho glaring newspaper headings concerning railroad disasters, less than 300 people had really lost their lives by those dis asters in the preceding twelve months. The Erie road wasset down as the most murderous in the list. It had killed forty-six or twenty six, I do not exactly remember which, but I know the number was double that of any other road. But the fact straightway sug gested itself that the Erie was an immensely long road, and did more business than any other line in the country; so the double num ber of killed ceased to be a matter for sur prise. I By further figuring it appeared that be i tween New York and Rochester the Erie ran eight passenger trains each way every day— ' sixteen altogether—auu carried a daily aver | age of tf.OiX) persons. That is about 1,000,000 in six months, the population of New York city. Well, the Erie kills from thirteen to twenty-three persons out of its 1,000,000 in six montbs; and in the same time 13,000 out of New York's 1,000,000 died in their beds! My flesh crept; my hair stood on end. "This is appalling." I said. "The danger isn't in traveling by rail, but in trusting to those deadly beds. I will never sleep in a bed again." I had figured on considerably less than one half the leugth of the Erie road. It was plain that the entire road mast transport at least 11,000 or 12,000 people overy day. There are many short roads running out of Boston j that do fully half as much; a great many I such roads. There are many roads scattered. ■ about the Union that do a prodigious passen ger business, therefore it was fair to presume that an average of 2,500 passengers a day for each road in the country would be about cor rect. Th-?re are 846 railway lines in our country, and 846 times 2,500 are 2,115,000. So the railways of America move more than 2,000,000 of people every day—oso,ooo,ooo of people a year, without counting the Sundays. They do that, too—there is no question about it —though where they get tbe raw material is clear beyond the jurisdiction of my arith metic; for I have hunted the census through and 1 fi'-id that there are not that many people in the United States by a niattor of 010,000, --000 at the very least. They must use soino of the same people over again, likely. San Francisco is one-eighth as populous aa New York; there are sixty deaths a week in the former and 500 a week in the latter—if they have luck. That is 3,120 deaths a, year in San Francisco, and eight times as many in New York—say about :*>,ooo or 20,000. The health of the two places is the same. So we will let it stand as a fair presumption that this will hold good all over the country, and that consequently 25,000 out of every 1,000, --000 people we have must die every year. That amounts to one-fortieth of our total population. One million of us, then, die an annually. Out of this 1,000,000 of us, 10.000 or 12,000 are stabbed, shot, drowned, hanged, poisoned, or meet a similar violent death in some other popular way, such as perishing by kerosene laurp and hoop-skirt confl&grations, getting buried in coal mines, falling off house tops, b: Lking through church or lecture room floors, taiiing patent medicines, or committing suicide in other forms. The Erie railroad kills from twenty-three to forty-six; the other 545 railroads kill an average of one- Shird of a man each; and the rest of that 1 000,000, amounting in the aggregate to the appalling figuro of 387,731 corpses, die natur ally in their bads. You will excuse me from taking any more chances in those beds. The railroads are good enough for me. And my advice to all people is: Don't stay at home any more than you can help; l»uo when you have got to stay ac home a wliile, buy a package of those insurance tickets and sit up nights. You cannot be too cau tious. [One can see now why I answered that ticket agent in the manner recorded at the top of this sketch.] The moral of this composition ;?, that thoughtless people grumble more than i* fair about railroad management in the United States. When we con-ider that every day and night of the year full 14,000 railway trains of various kindc, freighted with life aivJ armed with death, go thundering over tbe land, the marvel is, not i!; it uioy kill 300 human beings in a twelvemonth but that 11 ydo not kill 300 times 3(JO.

It is located as the geographical c«>n ter of that lice. It has had a moat marvciocs growth. POPULATION rif EECEIiBXB, 1882.... 60 " " 7EBBUAKT, 1883.... 1,000 11 " MAY, 1883... .1,046 11 " JUNE, 1888....a, 160 " " AUGUST, 1883.... 3,000 The Branch line to the Yellowstono Nations! Park has its terminal point here, and nil the im mense travel for that famous resort is compelled to stop here from a few hours' time to a number of days. The principal shops of tho railroad company between Braineidand the Pacific Ocean are now being built here. They will give em ployment to probably 1000 men. Pine timber is plenty in the surrounding country, nd various sawmills in the immediate vicinity of the town furnish work for hosts of employ a. The valleyu of the Yellowstone, Shields and Smith rivers tire vast and very rich in agricultural resources, and are well settled. Their trade is entirely tributary to Livingston, while magnificent cattle ranches abound in every direction; vest mines of true bi tuminous coal, which can be coked for 1% cents per ton; aleo rich iron mines are within two to four miles from town, a- d are being worked. The gold placer mines of Emigrant Gulch, Beat Crevice, Mill Creek, and Eight-Mile Crook, tire ingston, directly tributary to it. and are being actively worked. That wonderfully rich quarts country, silver and gold, known as tho Clark's Fork District, is south of town, and Livingston is the headquarters and outfitting point. Im meuEe deposits of limestone, eandstoue, clny and fine brick clay, are but two miles dutai i, cua! the manufacture of lime ie already an important in dustry, this being the first pointer U r leaving Due lnth on the east, 1,000 miles, where lime rock is found. There are some 200 buildings in conrs of construction. The Park Addition on which the new f 17,000 school house is expected to be built is the most desirable residence property in town, while the Palace Addi ion contains the cheapest business property offered for —the tendency of business and business improvement* being krgoly in that direction. Then aro two banks, the First National and a private bank; two newspapers, one daily and one weekly. A smelt ing and reduction company is also in process of formation, to be located here. There aro many chances for business enterprises of various kinds. Like all new countries, the opportunities for profitable) employment &ro very good and work men as well as men of capital will find plenty of chances in and around the town. Livingston is lees than a year old, yet it is probably tho Boeund largest city in Montana: It is not surprising when one considers that agriculture alone has made Fargo; tho Northern Pacific company* rail road shops, Brainerd; summer -rißitors, Saratoga; lumber, Eau Claire; silver and gold mine-, Den ver; cattle Kansas City; iron and coal, Pitubnrg; that v. combination of all of these factors as is found here should, within the neat five years make this point a city of at loa&t 50,C00 people. The prediction may seem a wild one, hctw»ha«t yet to coo or know anyone who, a few years ago, was accused of being wild then in their prw'lic tions, who predicted one-half of what hsa actual iy occurred in the Northern Pacific country. Wa sold lot in Fargo a few years ago for f 100 each that would sell to-day for 10 000; acres at James town for 15 per aero (cost 48 cents) that to-day &ell for $1,500, and are built on. We have acrea to-day in Fargo which coat <B>£ contß that arc now in town lots selling at the rs^j of ?J,250 per aero. So lota at Lavii^g ton which wo now offer at from $25 to $250 will, inside of 3 years, sell at from $500 to $10,000 apiece. They have done so at all good points on the road in the past, and they will in the futureparticularly at an excep tionally good point like this. We ad*anco pries in July. C.
