PBIDAY, : : : I s MARCH 14. 1879 A BBCUATWI THAT Ml'BT BE WIVES IP A Georgia Judge ban just set an example aight profitably be followed, not only |B Nevada but on the whole coast. Fistol iBooting, as a recreation, will have to be g|»B *> in that State. When one of the chivalry “gets hia blood np,” he will hcre aMer be obliged to “fix" hia man in some other way than by simply pulling a six ahootar from hia hip pocket and firing in discriminately in his direction. The Leg islature of that State has passed s stringent ' law against the carrying of a pistol, the penalty being the forfeiture of the pistol, a Bo* of $50, and, at the discretion of the Court, imprisonment for thirty days. Judge Lester, while bolding court recently In one of the northwestern counties, sud denly suspended proceedings, ordered the Sheriff to lock the door and let no one out; he then informed those present that he had seen a pistol on ono man in the room, and that he felt it might bo his duty to go be fore the Grand Jury and have him indict ed, bat if be would come forward and lay down the pistol and a fine of one dollar, the matter would bo overlooked. One after another from among the lawyers, witnesses and jurymen camo forward, until there were lying on the table nineteen pis' tola end revolvers, and as many dollar bills. "This is right," said the Judge, as each one advanced, ‘‘but you are not the man." There was a pause, and the Judge returned : "Gentlemen, here are nineteen persons who hare acted like men ; but the man I taw has not yet come forward. I will give him one minnte longer to accept my proposition ; if ire does not in that time, I will point him ont to the .Sheriff and order that he be taken into custody.” Immediately two men in the rear of the oonrt-room arose. They looked at each other a moment, bnt it was too late ; they had committed themselves, and could do nothing else than go forward and lay down their pistols and their dollars. One of theae the Judge designated aa the original enlprit, and the law having been thns vin dicated, the Court proceeded with its regu lar bnainess. - ■■ -• « # SAVINGS BANKS. The savings-bank system has reached a greater prominence and perfection in Massachusetts than in any other State in the Union. In that State thero is more than 1200,000,000 still on deposit in these Institutions, in spite of the financial de pression and the mark3d reduction in the rats of interest consequent upon the suc osss of the refunding of the Government loans. For the first time since there were ■aring* banka making reports to the State, then has been a reduction in every item. Mot only has the rate of interest decreased, bnt the amount of deposits has lallen off, and the banks are in a worse condition t*«a" ever before. We cannot look upon this as foreshadowing anything else than tbo substitution of government loans for the savings of the people. We shall never nome to the financial condition of France, when the people lend money to the State span the promise of an eternal aunuity, hot wo are slowly but inevitably approach lag tha time when the people of the United States will bold all its evidenoes of imlebt adnasa. When that time comes, we shall hear very little more about the necessity of government furnishing the currency of the Nation, or of the advantage of a currency that is irredeemable. Washington dispatches say that an ex amination of the appropriations voted by Congress, made at the Treasury Depart ment, leads to the serious conclusion that there will not be money enough in the Tressnry not otherwise appropriated to meet the expenditures under the River and Harbor bill, and the same may prove true at the Pension Arrearages act. Hr. Sher man says that hs will not infringe on the earn needed to secure resumption, and as Congress has required him to pay out more than he has received, he will wait until he la provided with funds. His plan for meeting the drain of the Pension Arrear sgss set is to pay out these claims at the rats of ten or twelve millions a year. An other serious difficulty exists in the accu mulation of silver, which is rolling up in the Treasury at the rate of MO,000 a day, and of which there will be twenty-five or thirty millions in the Treasury by the 1st of January next. -• ♦ •—■ ■ ■— Toon Washington advices, it would seem that the Oreonback leaders in that city still think that their party exists, and do not appear to be discouraged by the fact that at the recent local eleotions in the Eastern 8tates they showed largo losses and little vitality. The questions wliich brought it into existence have been settled by events which are irreversible, and no party can exist when the issuos upon which it was founded are doad. On what, then, doos it live? Its constitution being dead, prob ably it exists on its “by-laws.” -- a«a Thebe can be nothing comforting to tho Administration in the quiet and calm manner in which the veto has been received and treated by a large majority of tho people of this coast. True, Haves has been burned in effigy, and other marks of disapprobation shown, but the better and thinking class of our people were prepared for the veto, and therefore felt no sud den indignation. It has, therefore, ac eomplisbed nothing save to array against the Administration and the Republican party the opposition of the whole Pacific Coast. All the report* of the Puttor Committee •re now in, exoept that of Mrs. Jenks. We eboold like to hear from the charming Agnea. ____________ Met l> Year Bar at Home. From C. T. Cambell's Lecture io Mayfield, Ky. Bar-keeps in this city pay, on an average, S3 per gallon for whisky. One gallon contains an average of sixty-tivo drinks, and at ten cents a drink the poor man pays S3 SO per gallon for hit whisky. In other words, he pays 33 for the whiskey and Si SO to a man for handing it over the bar. Make your wife your bar-keeper. Iseodber 33 to buy a gallon of whisky (or a beginning, and every time you want a drink go to her and pay ten cents for it. Uy the time you have drank a gallon she will hare $6 SO, or enough to refund the 33 bor- I rowed of you, to pay for another gallon of liquor and have a balance of 33 50, She will be able to conduct future operations on her own capital, and when you beoome an inebriate, unable to support yourself, shunned and despised by all respectable persons, your wife will have enough money to keep you until you get ready to till a drunkard's grave. Pl'BUC OPIJflOS, As Shown hj the Pwm of thu #»• rifle Count. A LONG-NEEDED REFORM. From the San Francisco Chronicle. One of the most important provisions in the new constitution is that which pro hibits convict labor from being brought into competition with free labor. This is a reform for which our laborers ami me chanics have long clamored, and for this, if for no other reason, they should vote for the new instrument. THE TBAVP NUISANCE. Fromtha Virginia Enterprise, There is no earthly reason why a raco of vagabonds should grow up or come among us, training their children to dissolute and laay lives, each generation growing worse than its predecessor, until the whole land shall be covered with an infliction of moral leprosy. Unless we adopt measures prompt and decisive, this evil will finally become irremediable. ■SPEAKING FROM EXPERIENCE. From the Reuo Gazette.

NIGHT piSPATCHES. | SPECIAL TO THE EUREKA DAILY SENTINEL. 1 Xo Abatement of Interest in the International Pedestrian Mulch. New York, March 13. The retirement of O’Leary from the struggle for the Ashley belt, and the cham pionship of the world, has not reduced in the least the interest in the pedestrian con test. It is only more concentrated, with an earnest wish that the belt may be kept in this country, together with the glory and profit of the match. The score is as follows, at 11 a. m.: Rowell, 314; Harri man, 290; Ennis, 286. Neither the withdrawal of O’Leary, nor the advance in the admission fee, causes any apparent abatement of interest in the international pedestrian match. At the newspaper offices and business places, where the score is displayed, crowds are constantly gathered. O’Leary says he does not expect again to be able to make 500 miles in six days’ tramp. He will return home soon. At 2 o’clock the score stood: Rowell, 323; Harriman. 300; Ennis, 294. At 3 o’clock Rowell had made 328 miles, Harriman 304 aud Ennis 299. Harriman lias been off the track since the start the least time of any, his total resting time i being 19 hours, 59 minutes aud 16seconds. Tremendous applause shook the building when Rowell aud Ennis raced two laps or more around the track this afternoon. Rowell seemed to move with an effort, but Ennis appeared as fresh as at the last start. Mot Complimentary to Senator Sharon. New York, March 13. The “Times” Washington correspond ent reviews the laws and practice of Con gress regarding the pay of absentees, and contends that they are not entitled to pay unless by a special Act of Congress. He quotes Seuator Clayton, of Delaware, in the Thirty-third Congress, who said : There is no law for paying any man who stays away upon his own business. The corres pondent concludes: What would Clayton and his associates in the Senate have thought if a Senator had demanded pay for nearly two years, during which time he was at home superintending his silver mines, and in the face of two sections of the law. Senator Sharon is the most con spicuous example of absenteeism furnished by the anuals of Congress. The “Times’ ” editorial on the subject, says : But though the millionaire, who was mean enough to draw publio monoy which he did not earn, is not likely to refund it, after the payment has been found illegal, it is hoped that the people will not be subjected to a repetition of such swindles now that the law has been clearly set forth. Simon Cameron and the Widow Oliver. Washington, March 13. The suit against ex-Senator Simon Cam eron, brought by the Widow Oliver, be gan to-day. Cameron’s counsol says the suit is simply a blackmail. Mrs. Oliver claims to have in her possession a letter of which the following is a copy, which she makes the basis of the alleged promise to marry: Washington, Sept. 23, 1875. My Dear Mrs. Oliver—I will carry you to a better home than Washington. You should not stay there. I think I shall have a safe place for you, with relatives to protect you. You will be my wife. Signed, S. C. Mrs. Oliver’s friends say that the prin cipal obstacle in the way of the marriago was a neice of Mr. Cameron's, who was strongly opposed to the union. Bayartl's Opinion About the Extra Seas ion. New York, March 13. A “Herald” reporter interviewed Senator Bayard last night. Hu thinks the extra session of Congress will be short and gen eral legislation excluded. Two appropria tion bills will bo passed, and the obnoxious war test-oath of 1862 will bo repealed, which, ho says, excludes nearly the entire white population of the South from the jury box. A law will bo passed providing for impartial Jurors, and an amendment of the law permitting the presence of armed forces at elections, to keep the peace, and a repeal of those portions of the Be vised Statutes which provide for the appointment of Federal officials as Supervisors of Elec tions in the several States, and of count less Deputy Marshals, with unlimited power of arrest, with or without process, even while the election is proceeding. Bayard believes these measures will be pressed by the united strength of the Dem ocrats of both Houses. The Legislative Appropriation Bill. Washington, March 13. The “Post’’ says: The Democrats will pass the Legislative Appropriation bill pre cisely as it was passed at tho last session. Not an additional “i” will bo dotted, or a “t” crossed, and the IIuusc will do nothing else until the President signs it or rejects it. If ho approves it the army bill will be passed, and Congress will adjourn imme diately. If he vetoes it the Democrats will conclude that no time need be wasted, and will adjourn at once. If another extra session be called, the same programme will be carried out. The Democrats will not yield an inch, and are willing that the President should carry on the government without money. The Atewinbouliujf Season. New York, March 13. The navigation of the Hudson opeus two weeks later than last year. The steam boating seasou bids fair to outrival that of many previous years, both in the elegauce and number of boats, and in the compe tition in prioes, both for passengers and freight. It is rumored that a mammoth iron steamer, intended for night travel, is now building, which, in elegance and out fit, will excel any boat engaged in the Hud son travel. Bliwla's Letter on the Anti-Chinese Bill. New York, March 13. The “World” has a letter from Franklin Uhoda, of Brooklyn, Califoruia, on the anti-Chinese bill, in which he takes the ground that California has been misrepre sented as beiug unanimous, or substan tially so, in favor of perpetrating a base and cowardly wrong upon an unoffending people, and this merely because of their j virtues, notably their industry, economy and frugality. PACIFIC COAST. (SPECIAL ro THE KVUZKA DAILY SENTINEL. J CALIFORNIA. An Expfrim«nt wish the Elfflrlr Light. San Francisco, March 13. S. D. Field, Superintendent of the Elec tric Light Company, of San Francisco, has combined the principles of several electric machines so as to work the electric light and telegraph lines at the same time. To day, in the Western Union office in this city, one of his machines worked fifteen lines of circuits, varying from 100 to 480 miles, including one duplex of 198 miles. This is the first time the experiment has succeeded in working telegraph circuits. Thomas, alias “Monkey** Harrington, was arrested on Tuesday upon a charge of assault to murder. It is charged that a few nights ago he went to the home of J. J. Martin, No. 25 Everett street, got into an altercation with him, and threw a lighted coal-oil lamp at him, setting him on fire and injuring him.seriously. At half-past 10 o’clock on Tuesday night, a young woman named Georgiaua Morgan was standing on the corner of Stockton and Pacific streets, when she was approached by another woman, whoso name she gave as O’Conner, who cut her tim e times in the face ami once on the neck with a razor. The assaulter mode her escape. The wounded woman was taken to the Central Hospital. OREOON. Will Interview Chief Mosch, If Po»* ftible. Portland, Oregon, March 13. General Howard and Governor Ferry, of Washington Territory, have started for Yakima City, for the purpose' of interview ing, if possible, Chief Moses. While there, the gentlemen will fully investigate the situation and report the same. Moses was, at last accounts, with his people at Priest’s Rapids. Serious trouble is anticipated, should the civil authorities attempt to use any coercion in arresting Chief Moses. Strenuous efforts are being made to se cure a commutation of Johnson's sentence to imprisonment for life. Several petitions, very numerously signed, havo been for warded to Governor Thayer.

The ornaments thus produced are capable of high polish.

The severity of the industrial crisis in Germany, is shown by the fact that of 5,074 individuals arrested last year in Basle, chiefly for mendicancy and vagabondage, 4,251 were Germans, while many more of the same Nation wer3 turned back at the frontier. During the same time the police at Berne arrested and turned hack to their own countries no fewer than 22.218 va grants and paperless persons, nearly all Germans._ DAMAGES FOK NEDFCTION. A Nan Jomc Girl's Full—General Na glee Accused of Her Betrayal, Fu ller a Bromine of Marriage. (Froai the 8. F. Chronicle.J The ease of Emily Hanks against General Henry M. Naglee of San Jose is pending iu the Supreme Court on an appeal from the judgment of the District Court. Plaintiff sued to recover damages for seduction un der promise of marriage, and obtained judg ment for $27,500. Miss Hanks* case is to the effect that she is a nativo of San Jose, born iu 1850, and was educated in that city and San Francisco. Being left an orphan at the age of 16, she went to live with friends and maintained herself by domestic service and sewing up to the year 1871, when she accepted the position of house keeper for General Naglee. She remained with liim until 1875, resisting frequent at tempts upon lier chastity, several times quitting service, and returning again on promises of the defendant to amend liis conduct. She finally left defendant’s house on February 18, 1875, and went to live in the house of W. H. Collins, who procured her a situation in the Mint. On the 5th of Juno of that year plaintiff maintained that she was overcome in her virtuous determination through defendant's pro testations of affection and a solemn promise of marriage. The points maintained in the appeal are that plaintiff’s chastity failed her shortly after entering the service of General Naglee, and that illicit relations existed between the two for four years con tinuously previous to the date of the al leged seduction; that plaintiff demanded and received an unusual rate of salary in consideration of such scaudalous relations, and the truth of this representation is clearly shown by the purport of numerous letters produced and received by defendant from plaintiff, and which was copied by a friend of plaintiff’s; that plaintiff's testi mony was false in various essential partic ulars; that after leaving defendant's service plaintiff maintained an improper intimacy with W. li. Collins and that Collins was the father of the child ascribed to defend ant; that plaintiff was discharged from the mint in oousequenee of her faithless ness to Collins; that the promise of mar riage testified to by plaintiff was a promise founded on a vicious and immoral consid eration, and therefore plaintiff cannot re cover damage for auy breach of such prom ise; that the damages of $27,500 are ex cessive, are not justified by any of the facts or circumstances of the case, and were given by the jury under the influence of passion and prejudice; and that the Dis trict Court erred in ruling out certain ev idence and denying curtain instructions to the jury.

Arizona is now the only United States country in which lottery enterprises are favored by the law of tbe land. The sixth annual ball of the employes of the Virginia and Trockce Railroad is an nounced to take place at Carson on the evening of March 29. The Marysville (Cal.) “Appeal” denies that the city has been in danger, and says the water has not at any time been within five feet of the top of the levees. The Winnemueea Water Company con template building a large reservoir and makiug other improvements this spring, so as to insure abundance of water during the summer. The “Silver State” has this nows item: O. P. Crawford returned from his labors at Carson to-day. where he worked faith fully for the interests of his constituents— no, we beg pardon, for the corporations. A lady saved him from being kettled, and lie departed on the stage for Paradise valley. The Virginia “Chronicle** of Tuosday says “it was the deliberate opinion ex pressed last evening by a number of men at the Purim ball, that* a niau had more opportunities for making a fool of himself at a masquerade tliar. would be presented in courting a girl for three years. This opinion is shared by every person who failed to take a prize.” All About The North Pole. The Denver Tribune has found another man who thinks he knows all about the north pole. He is Capt. A. B. Tuttle, a sailor seventy years old. who has traversed the Atlantic, Pacific, Indian, Arctic ami Antarctic oceans, and who has been drvot ing himself for the last twenty-eight years to the far north. He i* now on his way to Washington to ask the Crovermmt for aid in discovering the Pole, Ho pronounces the Symines Hole theory foolish, and maintains that the true way to the polo is through Behrings straits. He says that he has reached latitude M3 degrees 15 min utes which is several degrees fatrher than any other explorer has been. The sea was comparatively open, with very little ice except in the form of icebergs. Sailing through these he found much to feed his theory of a continuously open sea to the | north and beyond that a continent whereon dwell a race which has no equal in point of stature and endurance. He found works which had evidently been cut and carved, and elephants’ and mastodons’ tusks seven or eight yards long. He also discovered gold and quartz together with many other evidences which were to him what the floating wood was to Columbus. Far to the north of the land of the Es quimaux he came upon a new race of men seven or eight feet high, with Human noses, long black hair and whiskers, amiable, virtuous and happy. From them and their signs he learned that 400 miles to the north them was the country from which they came, pleasant, inhabited, easy to reach, the home of large animals like the mastodon, abounding iu fish, game and Kohl. __ HOItN.
