Mr. Brown upon his appointment and
hopes that, the office will prove both

Assistant Land Commissioner Stone
has advised a correspondent that s-t
tiers -who made land entries at $2.50
per aero within the granted limits of
tJie Texts & Pacific railroad company
('which grunt was formed February 28,
1235, by a :t of congress) are entitl d
to a rerurn of $1.25 per acre. Thi
dicision is made on the ground that
the act of March 2, 18S9, has reduced
sue price or land in all forteited "rants
to $1.25 per acre.
From the report made by Prof.
Gilbert of the United States Fish
Commission, the upper end of the
Gulf of California is fairly alive with
rare and delicious fish. A small
steam-boat of light draft could easily
make the trip from Shoal Point, below
Port Isabel to Yuma inside of two
days; with a "well" aboard the boat
the fish could be kept alive and on
their arrival here, packed in ice and
shipped to the Eastern as well as San
Franciico market .. Choice pompano,
rod snapper, Spanish mackerel and
croaker always command fancy pric6
and as the suppty in the Gulf near
Shoal Point is said to be almost with
out limit, the opportunity is offered
of opening up a very renumerativo enterprise.

property made by any prrson to trus

ferred claim, with the same rank as
the original claim.
Sec. 4. All Acts in conflict with
the provisions of this Act are hereby
Sec. 5. This Act shall take effect
and be in force, from and after ita pas
sage. Put Silver Behind the National
The proposition of the Silver Dollar
seems to out the Gordian knot of the
Silver question. It wiil make a home
market for all the silver we can pro
duce from our mines, and give security
to ever National bank note that will
make it good as a silver certificate, o
arold which it is not now. It will in
terest the National banks in the cause
of bi-metalism, which they have here
tofore opposed. It will save them
rrom coins: out existence wincn, as
matters now stand, is surely thei
sjeed' end. As long as silver is below
its par in gold, or below the ratio of
1 to 16, these will be a profit to the
banks in going into this arrangement
The extra demand for silver will
cause it to rise in value, and thus gold
and silver will once more olask hands
in a union of prosperity for the people.
The plan is so simple and so practical
that no time should be lost by the
next Congress in putting it into ex
ecution. It will have the way for free
and unlimited coinage, and help give
prosperity to the nation.' Silver
Tho Future Of Electricity.
It would be quite impossible to fore
cast the future, even for a single decade,
with reference to the applications cf
electricity, even though discovery were
ended. The mere expansion of indus
tries already in some degree established
will give them an importance which
we cannot now estimate. Bat dis
covery is not ended, and it is more
than probable that results will yet be

The Mohawk Cartel.-
J: W. Dorrington President of the
Mohawk Canul Company returned
from San Francisco yesterday where
he has been some time past attending
to Mohawk Canal business. He re
ports that the affairs of the company
are in first-class condition; that ample
funds are on deposit to entirely com
plete the canal and also to make
proposed extension to the great water
way. The canal will irrigate over 30 -
000 acres of the finest land in the To -ritory
and fortunate holders are more
than pleased with rapidly advanciig
value of their holdings. The two new
Era graders and scrapers are being
put into condition to work on the
necessary lateral ditches, and when
the division gates are completed wluch
will be very soon, the wealth giving
waters of the Gila will flow along
through the fertile Mohawk valley for
a distance or twenty-seven nines.
A Good Showing.
The annual report of the Southern
Pacific Company, for 1888, makes a
splendid showing. This report is stat
ed to be the most complete of any
ever issued. In the introduction the
President and Directors call attention
to the fact that the capital stock
which, in 1884, was fixed at one hun
dred million dollars, was iucreased in
188S to a hundred and fifty million
dollars. The total number of miles
operated during the year, including
the Atlantic system and leased lines,
was 5,738, an increase of 246 miles for
the year. The groos earnings from
railroads and steamships reach a total
of 046,699,000. The operating ex
penses amounted to $30,780,000, leav
ing net earnings of $2,996,000.

May be i '.creased, the Digestive organs
strengthened, and the bowels regulated,
by taking Ayer's Pills. These Pills aro
purely vegetable in their composition.
They contain neither calomel nor any
other dangerous drug, and may be taken
with perfect safety by persons of all ages.
I was a great sufferer from Dyspepsia
and Constipation. I had no appetite,
and was constantly afflicted with Head
aclio and Dizziness. I consulted our
family doctor, who prescribed for me, at
various times, without affording more
than temporary relief. I finally com
menced taking Ayer's Pills. In a short
time my digestion and appetite
my bowels were regulated, and, by the
time I finished two boxes of these Pills
my tendency to headaches had disap
peared, and I became strong and well.
Darius M. Logan, Wilmington, Del.
I was troubled, for over a year, with
Loss of Appetite, and General Debility.
I commenced taking Ayer's Pills, and,
before finishing half a bos of this medi
cine, my appetite and strength were re
stored. C. O. Clark, Danbury, Conn.
Ayer's Pills are the best medicine
known to me for regulating the bowels,
and for all diseases caused by a disordered
Stomach and Liver. I suffered for over
three years with Headache, Indigestion,
and Constipation. I had no appetite, and
was weak and nervous most of the time.
three boxes of Ayer's Pills, and at the
same time dieting myself, I was com
pletely cured. My digestive organs are
now in good order, and I am in perfect
health. P. Lockwood, Topeka, Ivans.
Ayer's Pills have benefited me wonder
fully. For months I suffered from Indi
gestion and Headache, was restless at
night, and had a bad taste in my mouth
every morning. After taking one box
of Ayer's Pill3, all these troubles dis
appeared, my food digested well, and
my sleep was refreshing. Henry 0.

I was cured ol tile Piles by the use of
