EUREKA DAILY SENTINEL.
SUNDAY, MARCH 10. 1878._ UlSl'KIHIJIA IIO.M T> KA1LKUAU AHA RVKS. We had something to say the other day about excessive railroad charges, and attempted to show that the remedy required something deeper and more sweeping than local legislation. Of course something could be accom plished by it in the interest of purely State commerce, but the great bulk of Nevada business, which comes from beyond our borders, could not be bene ficially affected. Of all these soulless monopolies, tbe Union Pacific appears to be the worst of the lot. The Union Pacific is a line 1,032 tniles long, ex tending from Omaha to Ogden. Its discriminating charges are, if any dif ference, more outrageous than (hose of theCentral Pacific. Hon. J. B. Chatfee, of Colorado, in his place in tbe United States Senate, recently discussing the course of the Union Pacific railroad and its branches at considerable length, directed attention to the fact that these roads were built with the means lav Islily furnished by tbe Government; and be made among others tbe follow ing statements. In view of tbe fact that Nevada gets most of its supplies over this road bis argument must prove of interest to the people of this State. We quote: “The obligations imposed by Con gress have been and still are totally disregarded by IbeUnion Pacific Com pany, and In retaliation and for self defense, the Kansas Company has used the Denver Pacific to shut out the main line from the State of Colorado. While these companies are quarreling over this question, the people of the country are still compelled to pay these exorbitant rates. The young and vigorous State, which I have the honor to represent in this chamber, is practically embargoed by the refusal of these roads to comply with the law. No article of commerce raised or manufactured can be trans ported west of Cheyenne without pay ing more for freight, even for 57 miles, than is charged from Omaha to Ogden, a distance of 1,032 miles. I select a few example* of discrimination from late tariff rates by the car load of len tons. On bacon the charges from Cheyenne to Ogden exceed those from Omaha to Ogden $45; for beans, $85; for mess-beef, $81; coal oil, $81; grain, $88; hides, $213 51; lard, $71 50; lum ber, $70; powder, $108; sugar, $81. Ex cess of charges In a single train of fourteen oars for 516 miles over 1,032 igiles is $1,054 40. Neither Kansas, Colorado, nor Missouri can ship baccn, mess-beef, grain, livestock, etc., via Cheyenne, to any of the Western States or Territories, and all are en tirely shut out from the markets of Utah, Montana, Nevada and other re gions. me commerce ueiween lamurma ami Colorado is already large and is constantly Increasing, notwithstand ing these villainous discrimiua tions in freight by the Union Pacific Railroad Company. During the years 1875—'76, the crops ot Colo rado were nearly all destroyed by grasshoppers, and our people bad to depend on California and Nevada to supply the deficiency. Potatoes were purchased in Texas and shipped to Den ver, a distance of over 2,000 miles, cheaper than they could be bad from Ogden, in Utah, about one quarter the distance. On cabbage by the car load the charges from Sacramento to Den ver are $515, distributed as follows : Sacramento to Ogden, 743 miles, $195 50; Ogden toCbeyenne, 516 miles, $229 50; Cheyenne to Denver, 106 miles, $90. One firm in Denver pur chased in California last year 100 car loads ot fruit, the freight rates being more to Denver than to Chicago. In car-load lots the rates from San Fran cisco per 100 pounds to Chicago are $1 50; to St. Louis, $1 50; to New York, $1 50; to Cincinnati, $1 60; to Denver, $1 94, or forty-four cents per 100 pounds more to Denver, being 1,000 miles less distance than the nearest of the other points named. The rate on bottled beer from Chicago to San Fran cisco In car-load lots is $2 per 100 pounds, via the Union Pacifio Rail road, dirihnce about 2,400 miles. On one car-load of ten tons this would amount to $400. This is the published tariff rate of the Union Pacific Railroad Company, yet we find them charging for one car load of bottled beer, in May last, $315 freight from Cheyenne to Laramie, only 67 miles west of the former place. This car-load came from the Kansas Pacific Railway, and waa delivered to the Union Pacific at Cheyenne. I hold in my hand the original freight receipt of the Union Pacific Company, to show the truth of this statement. These illegal and outrageous discrimi nations are made to compel all ship pers west to traverse the entire line of the Union Pacific Company. Although the Union Pacific skirts our northern bonndary nearly 400 miles, and the Kansas branch traverses the State over 300 miles, the people of the State are tbns, in open defiance of law, deprived of all the benefits of a through line, and to all persons traveling across the continent Colorado is a forbidden land. During the moDth of July last, it be came necessary for the Government to send the Second Regiment of Infantry Irom Georgia to San Francisco. They went via the Kansas Pacific Road to Cheyenne. From Cheyenne to Ogden, five hundred and sixteen miles, the Union Pacific Company charged $16 50 per capita, or nine cents per mile, be ing the same rate for five hundred and sixteen miles as for ten hundred and thirty-two miles. This account is un adjusted, and the papers are in the Quartermaster Gener*s Office now, pending settlement.” Who will now say that the interven tion of Congress is not recessary to correct these outrages. While a local law might check the abuses of tlie Central Pacific to a limited extent, we would still have the robberies of the Union Pacific to contend against. The sure and speedy cure, however, is the construction of a competing line, and every man in Nevada who consults the welfare of himself and neighbors must favor Government aid to the Texas Pacific Road. disappearance or an isi.and. Captain J. 0. Longiners, of the Dan ish vessel "Lu tier field,’ ’communicates to a Copenhagan paper an interesting account of a novel experience which occurred ou December 10th, 1877, while on a voyage to Valparaiso. The ves sel tvas at that time in the neighbor hood of Terra del Fuego, about HO miles from Magellan's Straits, when, early in the morning, it narrowly es caped collision with an Island, where no trace of land appeared on the charts. The vessel hove to until daylight, when the Captain proceeded with a boat’s crew to the new island, which had gradually diminished in size since the first observation. Around the conical rocky mass the water was hissing, and, although no smoke appeared, it was found to be too highly heated to per mit of landing. Thesinkingconlinued slowly, until at 3 o’clock the island was completely submerged, and the vessel passed over the spot where it had disappeared. The volcanic island is probably due to the same causes which have produced the receut severe earthquakes on the west coast oi South America. FRACTIOXAI. ri'RRESClT. Of this species of paper money there were outstanding on the 19th of April, 1876, the sum of $-42,604,900, and on tlie 1st of February, 1877, but $17,471,900; consequently, $25,133,000 have been turned in and cancelled. It isestinmted that of the amount outstanding, fully $10,000,000 have been lost or dest'oyed in one way and another, and, consa quently, the Government will be the gainer to that amount, to the loss of the individual owners of the paper currency thus lost. That is to say, it is an actual subtraction of $10,000,000 from the property of individuals in the country; and, it were safe to say, gen erally from those of the people least able to bear such losses. Such losses will be obviated for the most part under the specie currency which w ill come into uso under the new Silver bill. Congress should at once pass a law re quiring all outstanding fractional cur rencv to be turned in on or before the 1st of January, 1879—upon which day all such money remaining uncancelled, should cease to have value. Hark! from the Tomb!—At an Anti-debris meeting, held at Marys ville, the other day, a Mr. Tomb, says the Grass Valley Union, declined to canvass with a petition asking the leg islature to pass a law to restrict hy draulio mining. He announced him self as a Kearney man on the debris question, and is in favor of blowing up with giant powder every “Little Giant” in the mountains. Petitions would not do it, but force would. These declarations were received with manilestations of approval by the meeting. It will not take long to con vince Mr. Tomb that lie is engaged in a grave business, if he undertakes his plan of settling the debris question. J. Madison Wells as a Murderer. In detailing the life of J. Madison Wells, President of the Returning Board, the St. Louis Democrat says: ‘■There has occurred no nioreatrocious murder than that ot Mat. Despalier by J. Madison Wells. At the time Wells was a man of wealth and high social standing, Despalier was a poor man without friends. A disagreement had occurred between the parties. When they met Wells was armed withashot gun. Despalier was unarmed, and threw up his arms to show that he was defenceless, when Wells fired upon him and killed him.” And now some fellow whet swears he has been weighing It, tells us the 'earth weighs 5,835.000,000,000,000 tons. That’s pretty heavy, but we won’t be lieve it till he shows the scales. During the month of February the Cbollar - Potosi Mining Company ■hipped bullion amounting to $17,854 54. Of this amount $12,262 43 was silver and $5,592 11 gold. During the mouth of February, 4,048,254 pouudaof silver lead bullion, and 2,770,680 pounds of ore were ■hipped over the Utah Southern road. Between the passage of the Silver bill and the trial of bis partners in Louisiana, John Sherman ought to be a very unhappy man, I I PBISTEB’S INK ARB TlllSIlt. Electricity and printer's ink possess virtues which the thoughtless do not always appreciate. A report had been circulated in San Francisco that the Richmond had placed an injunction on tlie Eureka Consolidated, and, worse still, that the mine of the latter com pany had petered out. Under these damaging rumors the stock of the Eu reka declined to $37. The Skntinki,, representing the Associated Press at i this end of the line, promptly forward ed by telegraph a stiong denial and explanation of the situation. That dis patch appeared in the San Francisco papers yesterday morning, and as a consequence confidence wag lestored, ami ttie shares immediately advanced to $39 50. Now, as this is an apprecia tion of $2 50 per share, it follows that the holders of the 50,000 shares of Eu reka Consolidated were benefited to the tune of just $125,000 by our tele gram. If we were not truthful, as well as modest, we might have put it a little stronger and made them $2u0, 000. NIGHT DISPATCHES. THE GREAT STORM. ALL TRAINS STILL TIED UP. Difficulty in Getting Press Departs. Chryknne, March 9. In consequence of a violent snow storm in Wyoming yesterday, no tele grapiiic report came through Inst night, the lines being all down. This morn ing they are Still down, and we are thereloie without our usual supply ol telegraphic news. Railroad trains are also blockaded, and there may be no Eastern news for several days.

Tli*“ Tuttle Mining Hill. The Assembly Committee on Cor porations, in the California Legislature, met (luring the recess Thursday, and had Tuttle’s bill “to encourage mining industry and prevent stock gambling” under consideration. J. A. Wayinlre, who writes the stock ariie’es for the San Francisco Chronicle, appeared Le fore the Committee and argued at length in support of tlie bill. Swift moved to recommend the bill back with a recommendation that it do not pass. Lost. The bill was then recom mended for passage by four aves to three nays. Ayes—Haile, Myers, Tut tie and Dixon. Noes—Swilt, Haworth and Uarver. fitarlllux Humor. i The Virginia Chronicle is responsible for this: A rumor was current amcng the legal profession, this morning,that one of their number hail collected a fee of a poor man, and, having Inst the case, had given him back a portion of the money. It created a considerable excitement, and there is loud talk of calling a meeting of the Bar to investi gate. aud, if necessary, make an ex ample of the offending lawyer. If found guilty, he will doubtless be ex pelted from the Bar Association of Storey county, and not allowed to practice iu Nevada. PACIFIC COAST.! WATER. LEaiSLATION.

A game ot cards was brought about, and Fris bie managed to pass the altered note in exchange for good money. He has been turned over to the United States authorities, and was released on bail in the sum of $3,000, his sureties being Lawrence Sellmger and George Van Maden. The members of the California Pio neer Coursing Club met on Tuesday evening to perfect all arrangements for the coursing meeting to take place at Merced, March 20th. The club de cided upon holding an open meeting, free to all greyhounds in the Stale, at an entrance fee of $10.

Some 1,200 tons of good ore are now on the dumps on Treasure Hill, wait ing till tlie roads get in order to permit hauling to the mill si Kherhardt. This amount of ore l as so clogged the dumps that it was found necessary to dose down the hoisting works for the present. This, however, will not in lertere with the working of the tegular force in the mine, but i.o ore will he hoisted. It is the opinion of a gentle man well informed about the mine, that with Hint now on the dumps, there is in sight ill the mine ore enough to run the company’s mill live months. The tumid is being pushed at the u-tial speed, and as its near approach to the old Kherhardt ground progresses, in dications of a fa vorable nature ate be ing met with.
