for mining In the Mapdalenns this summer Is

though tho present condition of the Jlrs and

There Is very little doubt that the Consoli

D Patterson lie returned to New York or
ganized a company and disposed of a part of
the stock to parsons who hail confidence In
htm Patterson retained an Interest In the
property nnd was mae superintendent lolo
was Vlcu1renldent and drew a salary ot 4uO I
1 month Tho Bev Mr Lowls of Now York
was made Secretary at a salary mid trlends ot
the two preachers received riaoos about the
mine at fete little salaries with nothing to do
Then they began to develop Ihe mine on tick
paying cash Jan nothing but tholr own services
Ilia finest mill In tbe country was built but
not paid for and men were hired to run II The
Eclipse put on mote style and produced loss
bullion than any mine In Leo Htato The unpaid
miners began to grow uneasy ns Poages
promises to pay wouldnt buy provisions
for their famllle and they fIled Hens
upon the mine lInt Poaga was ahead of
them even In thnt and they found that Le had
fled alien on hl > own account In no time
the Ecllpen was plastered all over with lions
and the mine was closed POle and 1 ewls
hired lawyers talked soothingly to the miner
promised to pay arrears of wages on a certain
date and tbi > n skipped Irom Auburn on un
early train with their pockets full ot money
The case Is now In court and has been so
thoroughly complicated by the fifteen lawt era
engaged in I that Judge Catlln doesnt know
what I Is all about Patterson hoped to sao I
the hole In the ground because the parsons I
couldnt carry that away and the lawyers cant
absorb It but the miners wno dug the Kifa do

Twenty years ago there was a mining camp
alo
called Star City on tho McCloud nnd Pit hirer I
divide In Shasta county but for the past cloven
years Star City has had but one Inhabitant nn
old minor named Utnut who stuck to his claim
when everybody MInut abandoned the camp
The ledge of sliver quartz that attracted the
original locators was rich enough but I con
tained sulphurets that were hard to work In
those days and the miners loft It for easier
dllllnll Stout has worked his claim In sum
mer and fall and labored elsewhere In winter
for wages to get supplies Working In that
way he has driven a tunnel laou feet Into the
mountain and at lost be has struck the ledge
The JloCloud ftoneer says there will be quartz
mills before long In Star City In I old Stout
Will have plenty of company again <

Minority r QoUc to lint
New BntTjiiK March tAt the present time
most peculiar political 1 situation obtains In
Connecticut Hitherto it has teen a complica
tion but Imperfectly understood by those un
familiar with the politics of the Nutmeg Stats
They have had a general knowledge of the In
justice that rules but not ot the legal facts
which give power to candidates who were de
feated the polls
Morgan O Bnlkeley who wan In a minority
of the votes out In 1888 was declared Gover
nor by the Legislature He was a candidate
for renomlnatlcn and so objectionable was
his record to his own party he was openly
laughed at when the Convention was held
Samuel E Mertrln was selected t bond the
republican ticket and the Democrats
again nominated Luzen D Morris as
their candidate At the election Mor
ris received 67C69 votes Merwln 63976
while for other candidates 3CGO were cast
This reeul A declared by a Republican re
turning board gave Morris a plurality ot 8080
and a majority of 26 All the other candidates
on the Democratic ticket had larger majori
ties And yet Bulk el ey refuses to recognlto
Morris and Insists on holding over while but
one ot the Democratic candidates Nicholas
Staub the Comptroller la In his office Bulks
Icy In the plenitude ot his Importance did all
he could to prevent even Btaub from taking
possession
The cause ot this anomalous condition ot
things Is mainly In the organic law of the
State The Constitution Connecticut now has
Is practically a colonial one In essence It has
como down from 1662 when Coy VTlnthrop
secured It I from Charles IL ot England 1 was
slightly modified when the Union was formed
uml was amended after bitter struggle Iu 1818
so as to give the pooplo religious liberty but
sine then no Convention to alter it
has convened I really reflects the
will ot an Ensllih King and re
pudiates that modern sovereign the soy
eielgn voter It answered when Con
necticut was an agricultural community but
now that this Is a manufacturing State It does
not answer It did well enough whoa the
shad in our greatest river were all salmon
but now It Is as far removed from the need of
the people as the salmon aro horn the waters I
ot tho Connecticut
Under the provisions of this antique Consti I
tution a clear majority of otos is required to
elect I this is not rocehvd the election is
thrown into the General Arsembly and that
body makes choice of State oiilcais Tile first
provision Is bad enough but the lost I in la
worse In tho selection of membuisof the lower
House no attention IR paid to the popular vote
The town is the basis of representation
borne towns have one representative and
other two but never more than two At the
last election the town ot Union cost 36 votes
I has Iwo votes In the Legislature In Now
Haven 15309 votes were polled and that city
bus but two votes as well In the Court of Ap
peals to which the election of State officers
coes New Haven has no more power bal
Union or than any one of forty or
fifty more towns but little larger There
are 257 members of the lower House and the
population line when applied to them makes
a strange showing According to tbu last cen
sus over onehall tho people of tho Stuto live
in the thirteen largest towns These towns
have twentysix vote In the Legislature while
the remaining towns containing a minority of
the people bnv 2tia members The fact tunt
tho smallerplacoR are usually stroll llopubll
can In their tendencies accounts for the love
that tilt party of Czar need has for this system
It dlBf ranchlspsthe Democrjta and gives to tbe
minority perpetual power binco 18S4 the
Democrats Imvo steadily given their candi
dates for State officers pluralities but In
every Inetanco the Legislature has seated the
Republican nominee The balloting gave the
Democrats a tlctnry the people endorsed their
clam hut under the law defeat has been
thlr portion
porton
This year there was 0 change in the pro
gramme The political cyclone of last Novem
ber was felt in Connecticut I drove the
Kapubllcnn ship out of what wan thought to
be a perpetual barboron to rocks that were not
perferuRI Every Dnmoratlo candidate for
the first time since Wallers I1U1 in 1832
hud 1 majority at the polls and the result won
so returned by a Republican canvassing board
In addition to this the Democrats received a
maJorIty of tbll tbu Senate The lower
house however under the town system was
proof against tho storm and still remained In
pOhseR ion of the liepu Oilcans The situation
wa critical The party that has ruled Con
necticut on the principle of divine right
saw power slipping from It and decid
ed upon most heroic measure Hitherto
It had demanded a strict construction of the
ha
Constitution and had adhered to every technl
nnllty Tbe condition wa reversed and the
Domorat found their claim sustained by tho
document that was once hid In the Charter Oak
In regard to the declaration of the State ofll
clals the following method is by it prescribed
A fair list of the persons and number ot

of tho presiding officers shall be by the rnu

BROOKLYN OFFICIALS LOSE
ncrotiT FOR Iou I ran
WATKR SCANDAL LITW ATIOK
The General Ttrm Hoc Declared the Power
t Agree to Porthole Expired with the
Right to Tick by Eminent Domain
The water scandal Brooklyn has beD pro
life In surprises over since the litigation to
prevent the purchase of the franchise nnd
stock of the Long Island Supply Company br
the city authorities at the alleged wasteful and
extravagant price ot 1250000 was started a
couple of Aonths ago by Citizen William Zleg
ler The matter has been In the courts In one
shape or another half a donen times
Soon after It bad ben announced In tho clos
ing week In December that Mayor Chapln
Comptroller Jackson and City Auditor Ilutan
had signed a contract for the purchase Mr
Ziegler through William J Gaynor his lawyer
obtained 0 temporary Injunction from Justice
Cullenol tho Supreme Court enjoining them
from completing the purchase On Jan 0
Justice Bartlett Issued an order continuing
the Injunction against the city officials until
tho charges of alleged wastefulness could b
tried ou their merits In his argument before
Justice Bartlett Mr Gaynor contended thnt
there was a constitutional bar agolnstthopur
chase In closing his decision Justice Bart
lett made reference to this point as follows
I entertain grave doubts a to whether the
power on the part ot the city officials to pur
chase under the Annexation aol did n t end
with the termination of the perlfid of two years
during which tbe city might have exercised the
power of eminent domain
After much legal skirmishing Including an
argument on appeal to the Oeneral Term
from Justice Bartletts decision the trIal on
the Issues Involved was set down before Justice
Culleu at the Special Term of the Supreme
Court this morning Justice Cohen had al
ready deckled thnt the trial should be before
the presiding Judas without a Jury
Todays proceedings won looked forward
to with much Interest In vIew of ihe lain that
Mr Gaynor had recently amended his com
plaint nnd had directly acuusod the Mayor
Comptroller and Auditor of ciiiusloii with the
owners of the stock of the water company
The public however will bo disappointed for
the trial will not go on this morning and I
may be Indefinitely postponed The proceud
lags are likely to be very brief Including
merely a pronounolna of judgment in favor of
the plaintiff by Justice Cullon and an appeal
from the same by Corporation Counsel Jenks
on the part of the defendant
This change In the entangled lltleation
rrltos from the decision of the General Term
which was filed in 1ouehkeprle on iatuu day
on the appeal from Justice Bartletts order
continuing the Injunction against the pur
chase by the city authorities The decision
sustains Justtco Bartlett and probably puts an
end to all further litigation a least until the
Court of Anpoal to whlc i the case will be car
ried by the defendants has passed upon the
questions nt UPUC
Thn General Term declares that the city had
no legal power to make tbe purchase of the
property or the Long Island Water Supply
Company andll this opinion is I sustained by
the Court of Appeals the controvoisy on the
subject will of course coma t an end The
decision of the General Term is in harmony
with the views of Jnstlio Bartlett already
quoted Tho act annexing New Lots to Brook
lyn passed In iNSii authorized thu Mayor
Comptroller and Auditor to purchase the Wa
ter Supply CumpanyH property within two
yearn subject to mortung I upon > tho pi opurtr
amounting to SAOOUO I The act also provided
that In aso no agreement was made for the
purchase the city might proceed to nciulrs
tbe property by eminent domain The power
to condemn expired with the two years and
the Court holds that the power to agree upon a
price expired at the same time The limita
tion of the ono carried the limitation ot the
other
OtherThe gist of the decision filed at Poughkeop
ale wan announced In Brooklyn yesterday but
tho text had not been received by any nf r the
Interested persons Mayor thapln Comp
troller Jackson and City Auditor Ilutan each
refused to discuss the matter und Mr minor
and Mr Xleglcr his client wero equally reti
cent Mr Pcarsall counsel for the water
company said that the decision would post
pone the trial pending the result of tlie appeal
Ion defendants to the Court of Appeals It
U I now Generally believed that tl 11 olosed I
purchase has been llectnally blasted and the
result nf the litigation so tar Is regarded a 1
decisive victory for Mr Ziegler
