Mining, says Mr. Alex. I)olman, an expert,
is not a profitable enterprise. Such, at least,
is the experience of the Pacific slope. In eight
years California employed $2.23:1,750O,000 in
gold mining enterprises, while the mint
value of the actual prortuct of gold for the
same period was only $4t0,o00.000.
Small-pox has visited hloago just ahead of
the Republican convention and has created
considerable alarm in that town. The ito
publican National Committee Insists that tlhe
authorities shall look after the disinfectlon 0, f
the town before the IRepubllcan politiclans
arrive there.
While the weather has been very warm in
the West of late, Iowa and Minnesota show
ing a higher temperature than Now Orleane,
It has been extraordinarily cold in the East,
falling twelve degrees below zero in New
Hampshire on the twelfth. The natural ro
gultl-Dotatoes nipped and beans and toma
toes killed-have, of course, followed.
The Philadelphia Timse regards (arlield as
the most promising Republican "dark horse"
for the Presidency. lie is both stalwart and
liberal; filled with the ultra political ideas of
the Western Reserve, yet so Identifted with
Hayes as to make him appear liberal. tHe
has, moreover, no political ware with such
leaders of the Republican party as Cameron
and Conkling; is, indeed, on friendly terms
with both factions of the party and, there
fore, a much more promising candidate than
Washburne or Sherman, both of whom have
many enemies among the Republicans.
The anti-Grant movement, especially in
New York, gathers strength every day. A
concerted movement is now on foot to estab
lish clubs in all parts of the State, and it is
meeting with much success. The "Young
Soratchers" are active in the movement, and
declare that they will bolt the ticket if
Grant is nominated at Cincinnati. They have
almost as strong objections to Blaine. Not
withstanding this opposition it is reasonably
safe to say that Grant will be nominated.
Thus far 240 delegates have been instructed,
and the the third term men have captured
198 of them. Of those elected without instruc
tions he has secured a fair proportion.
If half what the Republicans themselves
say of Grant as their Presidential candidate
be true, the Democrats will have little to
boast of in defeating him. The Cincinnati
(bmmercial declares that he will lose Ohio by
an overwhelming majority; and now come
the leading members of the party in Penn
sylvania declaring that Ulysses cannot pos
sibly carry "the Keystone State," as ten
per cent of the Republican voters will bolt
his nomination. Even in the Union League
Club there is a strong revolt against him,
while such men as Hon. G. A. Grow declare
that it is utterly impossible for him to carry
the State, and that if the Southern Republi
cans nominate him they will have to elect
After all, women do not crowd the ballot
boxes when the ballot is given them, notwith
standing the loud assertions of the women's
rights shriekers as to what they would do in
that event. According to the new law of New
York women are permitted to vote for school
directors. The privilege had been exercised
in a number of the minor towns by a few,
and some interest was manifested to know
what would be done with It in the larger
cities. Curiosity upon the subject has been
satisfied. A few days ago Albany held its
charter election, and in a city containing
nearly 100,000 inhabitants lees than twenty
women exercised the newly acquired privi
lege. This does not look as if the women's
suffrage advocates have correctly gauged
feminine sentiment upon the subject.
There promises to be considerable trouble
at the Democratic National Convention at
Cincinnati, growing out of the lack of tele
graphic communication with the rest of the
world. The convention will be held In the
Springer Music Hall, in that city. It was pro
posed, as is usual at conventions, that this
building should be connected with the tele
graph offices, so that the newspaper corre
spondents could telegraph the news direct to
their journals. This, it seems, will now be
impossible, as the county commissioners of
Cincinnati refuse to allow the Western Union
Telegraph Company to extend its wires to
Music Hall. Something like this has been
prophesied all along, and a meeting of the
Democratic National Committee was called
some time ago to change the place of con
vening in the event of a refusal of this kind.
The Cincinnati newspapers, however, came to
the aid of their city and promised that all the
-necessary telegraphic arrangements would be
made. They promised, however, prematurely,
for the Cincinnati commissioners have just
deoled the request of the Western Unlom.

The late Cornellus Vanderbilt was at one
time looked upon as the typo and emnlodl
ment of the "railroad king," but some of
those who have followed him rule over vast
empwhres where Ie held no more than prlnel
palitles. The system embraced In the Penn
sylvania Railroad and Its connections In
cludes some 54)00 miles, while the roads now
oontrolled by Jay Gould cover 8108 miles, and
practically unite the Atlantic and Paclfic
coasts, Chilago with New Orleans. ''exas and
Colorado, and the Ohio river with the far
Northwest. If the Vanderbllt roads, which
are operated In close connection with Mr.
Goulld's system, are adlded to It, there will he
found a total of 11,5411 rileos of road-more
than an elghthJ of our entlre mileage In rail
roads--vlrtually under one management.
There are, however, still some important
links missing In this great system.
which seeks to control the entire
transportation of the country from
the l'aciIlc to the lakes, and thus
dictate to the trunk lines further eastward.
Mr. Gould's policy has been not to take pros
perous and paying roads, but to get posses
shln of bankrupt and Insolvcnt ones, in the
hands of rec'o'vers, or for sale or Involved In
lItigation. Thlis polli'y has been greatly pro
moted by the prostration of railroad Interests
and business since 1173, and It will be propor
tionately loess sucessful hereafter as railroads
thrive and grow In value and stability. The
fact that the (hould system of roads has no
connection of its own with Lousville, Cnlucin
nati and Cleveland recently gave unusual Inm
portance to tI he report of a comblnation of the
Clneinnati, ilamilton and Dayton, Cleveland,
Columbus, COncinnati and Indianapolls, In
dlanapolls, Cincinnati and Lafayette and
Ohio and MIssIsslppi, aggregating 14122 miles,
in the interest of Mr. Gould; for If these
roadsshould be acquired theGould. or Wabash
system, would come into possession of direct
routes to Cincinnati and Cleveland, while the
Ohlo and MissIssIppi road would give the
most direct line between St. Louis and CIn*
clnnatl. The recent arrangement, by which
Mr. Gould and Mr. Scott secure control of
the partly-built New Orleans and Pacific
line, making connection with the Texas
Pacific, and Missouri, Kansas and Texas
roads at Marshall, 'Texas, will render the
Western system complete. Any further ex
pansion will probably he eastward, or to
secure connections with the points referred
to above. It is posslble, also, to add one or
two feeders in the far Northwest. Still,
whether Mr. Gould has obtained or is seek
ing further expansion of his railroad system
In the direction mentioned or not, we may be
sure of one thing, and that Is that his rail
road plans are still unfinished.
The Now York Produce Exchange has re
celved from California specimens of the so
called Pampas rice, recently brought into no
tice by the Kansas board of agriculture as a
new cereal which will grow on the most arid
soil and thrive in the most prolonged
drought, conditions under which neither corn
nor wheat can exist. It is claimed that this
"rice" has proved, on analysis, to possess
more nutriment than corn and nearly as
much as wheat, and it is stated that It is indl
genous to South America, Asia and Africa
and has probably been introduced by the
Mennonites. The plant is no novelty. It
was tried in Europe as early as 1596, and
made its appearance here long before the
Mennonites. It has been in the habit of com
ing forward every few years under a new
name, having already been known succes
sively as Egyptian corn, Ivory wheat, Guinea
corn and Indian millet. Each attempt to
foist it upon the public has been a clear case
of false pretenses. It is really no other than
the drooping sorghum, and differs from com
mon sorghum principally in the fact that the
stalk, bearing the head or ear, droops. This is
not caused by the weight of the ear, as the
stalk begins to turn almost from the moment
the ear begins to form. It is not rice or any
thing akin to it, and is not a native of South
America. Among the semi-barbarous peo
ples of the E.st Indies and Africa it forms a
staple article of food. Unripe It is cooked
and eaten like green corn; ripe it can be
boiled the same as rice.
A dispatch from Panama, dated April 3,
says that the Peruvian papers report the
destruction of the guano-loading apparatus
at the Chincha Islands. These islands,
three in number, are located in the Pacific
ocean, about twelve miles from the coast of
Peru, opposite the port of Pisco, in the De
partment of Lima. The largest of the
group, known as North Island, or Isla del
Norte, is only four-fifths of a mile in length
and about a third of a mile in breadth. The
whole importance of the islands is due to
their immense deposits of guano, from which
the Peruvian government derives a revenue
larger than from all other sources combined.
They are of granitic formation, and rise
from the sea in precipitous cliffs, worn out
into countless caves and hollows,which furnish
convenient resting places for sea-fowl; and
the guano is honeycombed with the nests of
small birds which frequent the islands in im
mense flocks. The name of the islands and
of the town and valley of Chincha on the
mainland is derived from an ancient Indian
race which has left some interesting relias of
Its sojourn. The surface, which is destitute of
vegetation, ia oovered with guano more than
one hundred feet in depth. The quantity of
guano in the Islands in 1914 was estimated at
18,250,0X4) tons, and according to the survey of
the Peruvian government in 153:l they then
still contained 12,370.11) tons. The supply is
now practically exhausted, and the foreign
export which had begun In 1841 was brought
to a close in 1872. Ileltwne 1853 and 1972, 1,
000I.(1K) tons were obtained from the Nol tlh and
M idlle lilands. In I n5i 4 tho (hlincha islands

The New York N('tr. wht'h Interviewed the
wal kers hl the late pedestrian matchll in New
Yor k, declares that the story of their having
suiffered so mucnlh from their violent exercise
Is absolutely false, and that they are to-day
in excellent physical (xondltion. Hart, the
winner of the match, (leclares that he cotuld
oesily have made twenty miles more, but
that he did not do so because le saw Ire had
the race in his hands and had heard so much
of the danger of overwalking and over
exercising. All of the pedestrians are of the
opinion that pedestrianism Is a progressivo
science, and that we are only Just beginning
to learn how to walk. ''Ten years ago 400
miles were coensidered as impossible In six
days; ia year ago 41 miles was regartled as
extraordllinary. In r perl(sl of twelve
months this record has been Irneroased 117
mlles. All of the professional walkers were
certalu that the fut.ure winnerts of pedestrian
lwitsr must make 6t.) mlles int six days, and
bello.ved that evtn more than this was p.osl

points in the very necessary art of walking.

Siberia promises to have a rich crop of
exiles from Russia this year. The telegraph
reports that there are 20,000 prisoners now
waiting in Russian jails for better weather,
when they will be conveyed to Saghallen and
the Siberian mines. The dictatorship of
Melikoff appears so far to have brought about
but few of those reforms promised and pre
dicted of it.
In his remarks before the special committee
of the House of Representatives. on the twen
ty-seventh of March. Mr. Wm. F. Channing. of
Providence, It. I., claimed the right of discov
ery of the plan of a ship railway across the Isth
mus of Panama. lie said. during the discus
sion which preceded the construction of the
present Panama Railroad, about thirty years
ago, he proposed the ship-railway for the port
age of vessels across both the Isthmus of Pan
ama and the Isthmus of Suez. The ship-rail
way, in its first conception, was a road with a
mutiple track of equidistant parallel rails,
which by using both sides of every rail (except
the two outside ones) made as many tracks as
there were rails. less one. To this mutiple
track a cradle-car was adapted, with corre
sponding arrangement of tracks and wheels;
and an equal pressure was secured to each
wheel by rubber or other Isprings. The cradle
proposed was of the character then used on
marine railways, with certain imprJvements
giving elastic "support at short Intervals to the
hull of the ship. As the cradle-car. 30o feet
long. for the accommodation of the largest
ships of that day, could not adapt
itself to the common railroad curves and gra.
dients. Mr. Channins's plan contemplated a
straight and level track-changes of direction
or grade being effected by turn-tables and tilt
ing tables. Obi jtion being made to this plan.
that the ships could not ride in those cradles
without straining. Mr. Channing proposed to
substitute for them caissons, or water cradles.
large enough to allow the ship to be transported
to be floated in them. Mr. Channing exhibited
a drawing of his railway, with its terminal
caissons submerged and prepared to receive
ships floating above them, ready to be drawn up
the inclined plane; which drawing he declares
was submitted to the Hon. Richard W. Thomp
son. now tecretary of the Navy. July 29, 1859.
Mr. Ohanning says the ship railway has been
studied for years and has been made familiar
to many of the best engineers of the country.
It would seem as though they have some
"ways that are dark" up in the land of wooden
nutmegs. as well as down in unreconstructed
rebeldom. In fact. a recent event has shown
that the Republicans of Connecticut are not to
be classed below our Wells. Anderson & Co.

was declared elected over Prentice Avery.
the Democratic nominee. Mr. Avery was dis
satisfied al the time with the count, but with
the great eight to seven precedent before him
did not ask to go behind the returns. He was
anxious, however, to ascertain for his own
satisfaction whether he had been elected, and
a few days ago he had a recount of the ballots
at the town clerk's office. The boxes were
opened and the votes counted in the presence
of a delegation of Democrats and Bepublicans.
and it was found that Avery was really elected
in confusion and excitement, the Democrats
openly accusing the Republicans of knowingly
perpetrating a fraud. The question is still an
open onelas to who shall receive the pay for the
six months that the Republican has served. If
decided in favor of Avery there is no reason
why r. Tilden should not institute suit for the
