Wall Street Operators Place BeU fcr Their Patrons sad Boallze iMtge ProflU Political Spec ulatlon Growing:. Betting1 on elections has become a recognized branch of the business of many Wall street brokers. Toward the end of the recent campaign the betting; on the national election became of such magnitude that the names of Cleveland and Harrison might appropriately have been placed among the stocks and printed with the regular quotations. The Sun thinks it is likely that in future campaigns much more betting than ever will be done by recognized brokers, and that the election betting, like other big financial interests, will Center in Wall street. As the majority of the Wall street bets were not made with the publicity which attended betting in hotels, it was only when settling time came after the election that their gross magnitude became somewhat known. The bettors on the election in Wall street were greater speculators than those who made wagers at the hotels or put up their money at some up-town pool room. Hundreds of men keep balances with their Wall street brokers to be available at any time in stock specula tion. These accounts differ from the ordinary bank account in that the Wall street account is kept for purely specu lative purposes, while the bank account is for business purposes. After a pros perous business season, when the mer chant has taken care of all of his own paper and obligations and has a com--fortable surplus left, he is apt to go to Wall street to invent and usually to speculate, for he regards the Wall street fund as somewhat of the nature 6f gambling money. With such men speculation last au tumn took for the first time a turn to ward elections, whereas before it had been confined to stocks, wheat, corn, oil and other products with recognized quotations. None of them appeals to the business man as does politics. Al most all business men personally have strong political prejudices. Even many of those who will not take the trouble and time to register and vote have a strong feeling for one party or the oth er. Wall street brokers have not as yet charged commissions on election bets, and this gave the speculative business man still more of a turn toward election bets, for he did not have to pay a quar ter commission. It also attracted him from the up-town betting resorts, for any man going to a bookmaker to place his money would do a little worse than if he could meet at once some man who was as eager to bet on the other side. The brokers began by placing elec tion bets to oblige their customers who nad balances with them, and they soon found that the business was profitable. The money was always put up by the customer, and as the brokers making the bet were well acquainted with each other there was no necessity of putting the money in the hands of a stake holder, and the respective brokers could retain the money without paying in terest. If the election bets were made a long time before election the profits to the broker were greater than if he had made a turn in stocks for his cus tomer, and the bother was much less. It is likely that in the aggregate these Wall street election bets amounted to more than the Hoffman house bets. A man could offer through his broker to place fifty or a hundred thousand dol lars on Cleveland or on Harrison, and the broker would parcel it out in lots in the same way as if he had an order to buy or sell five thousand shares. New possibilities have been opened to the Wall street broker now that they have seen how easily they can do the business of election betting, which might be extended to cover any other event of uncertainty or great public in terest. There is now no betting place in New York corresponding to certain well-known betting establishments in London and Paris. There are any num ber of pool rooms, but it. requires a man of some experience to deal with them; besides, the associations are not always pleasant and the security for payment, , if one wins, is not so good as it might . be. The per cent, against the player is high, as the expenses of the pool rooms are large, and there is not the open competition between them which ex ists between the brokers. It now re mains for brokers to take bets on horse races, as they have taken bets on the elections. They would get a different kind of men in the horse race betting, and through the summer Wall street would not be so dull and profitless as it usually is during that season. The Life of Niagara. J Concerning the wearing away of Ni- I agara Falls, Prof. Le Conie says: The upper stratum of rock is Niagara lime stone, a hard rock, but beneath it is a stratum of shale. It is the slow under mning of this shale that causes the lime stone to break off from year to year and the falls to recede. They are reced ing now at the irate of three or four feet a year. What will be the final re sult? They may go back to the lake, but the limestone is growing thicker and thicker and may finally extend to the bottom of the falls. In that case the rock would not break off, but would wear away and form a rapids. In any j case, if the falls should recede to Lake Erie, at the present rate it would take at least twenty thousand years. A Dutiful Husband. Queen Austrigilda, the wife of Gon- fran, king of Burgundy, being on her death-bed, requested her husband to bury the two ph3'sicians who were then in attendance on her person' in the same tomb with herself, as she attributed her coming dissolution to their want of skill. Like a dutiful husband, the king not only promised his young1 wife to carry out her request, but actually saw that it was done. In the good old times it was as risky to be a couit j?hysic"an as it is at present to te a Eaefiicine man ; among the Arizona or Oregon Indians. LOCJIL ITEMSi Mr. and Mrs. D.

Tho Patriarch of Western Hemisphere r Clangers Owned by a Colored: Church. The congregation of the African Methodist Episcopal church at Haley ville, N. J., has a rare relic in the shape of a large bell, which is said by those who have traced its history to be the oldest bell in the western hemisphere, says the Brooklyn Eagle. The bell was procured by Capt. Elias Newell on one of the Bahama islands and presented by him to the church. It is one of the bells, as stated, which Ferdinand and Isabella placed upon the Alhambra in 1492, and in 1502 was pre sented by Queen Isabella to Christopher Columbus upon his fourth and last voy age to America. It was placed in the chapel which was the beginning of the great cathedral of Carthagena in New Granada.. In 1697, upon the siege of Carthagena, it fell to the share of the French ship La Rochelle. Afterward the ship was wrecked upon the island of San Andreas, one of the Bahamas. A few of the crew were saved, togeth er with the bell. From the descendants of the survivors the bell and its history were obtained by Capt. Newell, of the bark Ezra H. Fis&, of Haleyville. There ,is a debt of one hundred and ninety dollars resting upon the church at Haleyville, and so highly do the people value the relic the Columbus bell that they will not place it in the church lest the latter may be sold for debt and they lose the bell, but it is securely kept at the residence of Trustee Alfred Green. It is four hundred years old this year, and it is proposed that it shall be eahibited at the Columbian exposi tion. Reviving The Tattoo Pad. F A year or so ago a good deal of news paper talk was caused by the announce ment that some of the utra-f ashiona ble eastern bcllesihad taken to tattooing their ankles and the calves oi their legs with designs more or less artistic, ac cording to the ability of the man who did the work. According to the Phila delphia Record the latest fad of the fin de siecle damsel is to ornament her arm with an India ink picture of Columbus' caravel, the Santa Maria. As such dis figurement will, of course, prevent tha victim from following the prevailing fashion of wearing dresses with little or no sleeve attachment, it is not thought the practice will prevail to the same ex tent as that of tattooing the legs - and ankles is said to have done. . . - - " Yuma iu Earnest A rousing mass meeting of the citizens of Yuma and vicinity, was held last Saturday evening at the Summer Garden of the S. P. Hotel, to take action in regard to the proposed appeal of the Al godones Land Grant case, to the U. S. Supreme Court. Mayor A. Frank was elected chairman and L. A. Hicks Secretary. The following were appointed a com mittee on resolutions: Chairman Hon. Sam Purdy, John Gandolfo Chas. Baker, I. Levy, A. Modesti, S. S. Gillespie, F. L. Ewing, D. K. Allen, Thos. Gates, P. G. Cotter, O. F. Townsend, R. Horn beck, M. J. Nugent, Dan O' Toole and D. Balsz. After a short recess, the committee reported the following preamble and resolutions, which were adopt ed by the meeting without a dis senting voice. Whereas, It is known to us that Acting U. S. Attorney General Maxwell, has indicated that an appeal will be taken in the case of the Paso de los Algodones, Land Grant, from the decision of the U. S. Land Court of Private claims, to the U. S. Supreme Court; and Whereas, These lands have lain idle for many years, though adjacent to the town of Yuma, on account of the question having arisen as to the validity of their title: and Whereas, The U. S. Land Court of Private Claims, after a long and most exhaustive examination and trial of the same, decided the case, to the entire satisfaction of every bona fide settler on said lands, who in good faith is occupying the same, with the honest intention of cultivating and making his, her, or their location, a permanent home; and Whereas, A large number of our best citizens have purchased homes for themselves on said lands, since the decision of the U. S. Land Court, and .have spent large sums of money in opening up and improving them; believing that no appeal would be taken; and Whereas, The owners of the Algodones Land Grantj have al ready spent more than $100,000 in actual developments of the lands and in putting in irrigation works for supplying these settlers with water, and which are now in actual active daily operation, irrigating hundreds of acres of vineyards, orchards, fields and gardens; and Whereas, There are no parties interested financially in this case, except the .United States and the claimants; and Whereas, The latter have put the cost of the land and water at such a price, and upon such terms, that thov come within the reach of all, even the poor man, being able to purchase one acre or more, as his finances will permit him to do, and is thus enabled to secure a home for himself and family; and Whereas, Should this case be appealed, it will throw not only this tract, but those adjoining it, back into their former desert state, depriving those who are now oc cupying them of their homes for years, if not forever, and thus retard, if not completely ruin this entire region; the present and future prospects of which, bid fair to make it the leading portion of the great southwest, and to set back the growth and development of western and southwestern Ari zona for years to come;" and Whereas, It is a well-known fact that the few in this section who favor the appeal bein'g taken, are ony doing so for obstructive purposes as they already boast, be cause the owners of the grant, will not give them, the acreage with water, which the' desire, but to which the' have no right what ever; and Whereas, It is (he earnest de sire of the U. S. Government, to have all of its lands settled, as early as possible and by the largest number of families,- such being the general policy of governments' t!he world over; and pending the de termination of this grant title, these lands have lain idle until the decision of the hmd Court, when persons and families commenced and have since been building homes on said lands and improv ing the same, thus attract ing other settlers on ad jacent lands, which said homes and lands must be aban doned, in the case of the failure of the grant owners to supply water, which must result if this appeal is taken. Therefore be it resolved, That it is the voice and wish of the peo ple of Yuma and vicinity, in mass meeting assembled, that no appeal should be taken to the U. S. Su preme Court, in the case of the Paso de los Algodones Land Grant. Resolved, That while our sym pathies are with the. poor and those who are striving to secure homes for themselves, their wives and little ones, we have no charity for those whose only aim is to ob struct or secure without cost to themselves, that which does not be long to them; or for those whope only purpose, in this matter, is to have revenge for some fancied slight of theirs. Resolved, That an official copy of these resolutions be forwarded to U. S. Attorney General Olney at Washington, D. C, with an earnest request that ho will listen to the wishes of the people, herein em bodied, that make up this town and community; also that that a copy be sent to our delegate to Congress, with a request that he do all within his power to carry out the requests of our citizens as herein expressed. The meeting then adjourned. All I'rce. Those who have used Dr. King's New Discovery know ita value, and those who have not, have now the opportunity to try it Free.

They will explore the east shore as they go down the gulf: The party had been up the Hardie only about 8 miles, When they went down to Horse Shoe Bend, and walked across to the Painted moun tains, about 10 miles from the Col orado, the northeastern portion of which they explored. That section is one of great interest, unlike any other on the Gulf. Mr. T. says, that they found some wonderful things, the history of which ho prefers to leave for Mr, Robinson to tell. They found an abundance of deer, antelope, water fowls and fish. The water in the hot springs near the old ship yard at Port Isa bell, was very good. Mr. T. says, that he learned, that Geo. Clerk, about whose trip to Guaymas, in an open boat, so much fuss was made, instead of sailing down, as was reported, put his boat on to a small schooner, and took passage to that point and return, to the mouth of the Colorado. Mr. T. came up the river with Charlie Thieson. See tlie Worias Fair to Fifteen. Cents.
