FRIDAY. ■ ■ JPLY 1, 1887 Ag r«> (OHNKRISO SILVER. The London World suggests that had the Chicago wheat bulls put up a frac tion of the money in cornering silver and lifting the London price of it that they actually put up in cornoring wheat, they would haye effected their object of lifting the wheat price far more effectu ally, while incurring far less risk. There is meat in the suggestion, says the San Francisco Examiner; and when the sil ver deposit certificates of Mr. Jordan get into free working order in New York, some pretty operations may ensue. These would not affect the world’s prices for wheat alone, but of many other staples and, for the time being, the India exchanges and India trade would be disorganized. A very moderate sum of money (as sums are accounted in these days) would suffice under ordinary cir cumstances to lift the price of silver in London 4d to 6d an.ounce—say 10 to 20 per cent. The only reason it has not been undertaken is because no one has had an interest in undertaking it. But the day that Mr. Armour or any other of the great operators shall fiud his account in advancing the value of an Indian product, the least part of his difficulty will be in finding the money sufficient to put up the price of silver and along with it the Indian exchanges. The minimum price at which any commodity is sold is the cost of producing it at the place of cheapest production. In regard to wheat, this place at present appears to be India. If Indian wheat can be sold in London at thirty shillings (and noth ing under), with silver at forty-four pence the ounce standard, then with sil ver at forty-eight and a half pence, the wheat cannot be sold under thirty-three shillings. Now, the minimum price for the cheapest wheat is the starting point from which simultaneous value for other wheats will ordinarly be rated, and the point from which their prices will range. The World quite truly says: “ Very little buying would have greatly affected the silver market here, and there would have been no necessity for incurring all the heavy charges attendant upon lock ing up in Chicago warehouses so large a quantity of wheat.” The Americans, in the opinion of this authority, laid violent hands on the wrong eud of the stick, and will be found wide awake enough the next time they undertake anything of the sort, to get hold of it by the right end. EXCEEDIieLT ERRONEOUS. The Nevada Union, in its issue of the 27th inst., has an article on the dangers attending all who delve in the bowels of the earth for the riches which nature has deposited there. It touches on sev eral points pertinent to the hazards a man risks in going into a mine, and ex plodes the false theory that the places of good miners can readily be filled by new ones in the following extract: Such disasters remind all that the mining avocation calls for the service of the very best type of physical and mental manhood. The death which they perchance are to meet seems ignoble, and among the general readers who know nothing of the profession of mining, the impression more or less pre vails that the places of the lost men can simply be filled by others and that the world is really no loser. Such ideas are exceedingly erroneous as well as heartless. The loss of such men means a great deal. The tenderest ties are severed and the interests and mendships of great communities are rudely dis turbed and shocked. Nothing short of this would induce a thousand men to voluntarily march together in fraternal procession behind the bier of a fellow laborer. Wealth, intelligence, the poor, and common people alike attend upon such solemn occasions, and all social distinctions vanish in the presence of a common woe. It is a credit to human nature as well as a proof of the dignity of labor that such distinguished honors are paid to the^ictims of a dreadful dis aster as were witnessed Sunday at the four funerals which took place on the Comstock lode. Peasant shooting is the favorite amuse ment of the mad king, Otto of Bavaria. But no peasants are killed, although his majesty fancies that he has brought down several. The way they manage the royal sport is very simple. A fine hunting rifle is handed to the king, and he immediately posts himself in one of the windows of his castle. The rifle is loaded with a blank cartridge. A man is hired to post himself in a thicket, and to emerge from it at a given signal. Immediately upon his appearance a royal bead is drawn upon him. The king fires; the man falls, and the servants put him upon a stretcher and carry him off, while his majesty rubs his hands with delight. The peasant receives his pay and puts in his application for another job. It is a fine thing to have a crazy king. _ An attempt was made by two masked men to burn the Los Angeles Chinatown 1 on the night of June 24. TELEGRAPHIC.

Relief for the Dead Miners' Families on the Oomstook. The Last Move by Mr. Nparks. Denver, June 29.—The Cheyenno Wyoming special to the News re ceived at a late hour Saturday even ing that Commissioner of the Land Office Sparks had taken preliminary steps to cancel the entries made of 55 sections of land in what is known as Goshen Hole in this county, stirs up a good sized sensation here. The land in question was taken up in the inter ests of the Goshen Hole Irrigation Company, the President of which is Mr. G. B. Goodell of this city and Wyoming, and also one of the officers of the Union Cattle Company ot wmcn Mr. Thomas Sturgis is President. The entries were made by seven persons living in Wyoming and 43 living in New York, Massachusetts and New Jersey. The action of the Land Com missioner is based upon the reports of Special Agent Fry. Mr. Sturgis in dignantly denies the statements set forth in this report and characterizes the item as false. He states that work w7as commenced on these ditches in 1883, and has been steadily executed since except in midwinter. It has actually been distributed over 20 miles in length in one ditch and 15 to 18 in another and the expenditure in the work of reclamation during the past four years has been $250,000. Several hundred acres of alfalfa are growing upon the lands on which the agent states ditches were not con structed to carry water and that the late Secretary of the Interior was ad vised of the proposed filing by “ for eign ” entrymen, as those outside of the Territory were styled, and that the scheme with all the details for the full reclamation of this immense body of lands had his full approval. Mr. Sturgis also adds that the attack upon himself and his company in the light of the above circumstances is of per sonal and political persecution. The present status of the entry allows the entrymen another hearing before the Cheyenne Land Office to show cause why their entries shall not be can celled and failing in this an appeal lies to the Secretary of the Interior for the final decision. The Knights and the Holy nee. New York, June 29.—A special from Philadelphia: It has been made known by the prelate that the Holy See has not decided to tolerate the Knights of Labor. When Cardinal Gibbons went to Rome, he found the case of the Knights of Labor had been prejudiced by the McGlynn-George movement which was taken as a dan gerous symptom of the effects of the Knights’ teaching. By the utmost ex ertion and with the strenuouos support of Manning, Gibbons secured what may be called a stay of proceedings, until Rome should have obtained the full sense of the American Episcopate on the question. As it now stands, there may be a friction between the Knights and the Church, but all indi cations point to the unanimity of the American Bishops in advising pru dence and a policy of non-interference will not fail. Accldeut In the Yellow Jacket. Virginia, June 29.—Joseph Kin negar, lately wedded to Miss Kate Forgerty, while at work as station tender yesterday afternoon on the 700 level of the Yellow Jacket mine, had his should fractured by being caught between the cage and a wall plate. He had signaled up the cage, and just as it was ascending the shoot and near the wall plate, he tried to catch a tally board he had left on the plat- i form of the cage. It caught him at the shoulder joint of the arm, and held him there like a vise till relieved, when he was speedily taken to his home 1 and all the doctors within reach were J summoned. They did everything in i their power for him, but beyond al- 1 leviating his pain, were powerless, for ] he expired from his wounds about 9 o’clock last evening, a portion of his | breast having been crushed in. Darlua Jail Delivery. St. Paul, June 29.—Advices from • Blackfoot, Idaho, tell of a daring t jail delivery last night.
