Northern Kailroatl Protest. Eventually Roun will surely have railroad communication with Nortu ern California, it not direct comuiu niaation with the ti ie wmer by mi other route than the one now trav eled. And such a road would ho a pu\ing investment from the start The Sau Francisco Bulletin, io an article on the railroad progress of Calif'>rnia, says that the road be tween Wo >dland and lied Bluff has been built and is now opened as far us Williams, a new railroad town •even miles from Colnsa. There is a prevailing opinion that tins north ern road will l<e ultimately extend ed through Shasta Valiev to Modoc « ■unty. connecting dually with the Central Paeitic o < this aide uf the Sierra Nevada. The argument in favor of this extension is that it would traverse a section whore the traffic wonld not bo subjected to iueonvenienoe of delay from snow blockades. Such sn extension would open an area ot country where rail road facilities ore much needed, aud give sn impetus to settlement in the counties of Shoots, Lassen aud Mo doc. It has been reported that cer tain portions of Shasta arc very rich in coal deposits which only await transportation facilities to develop groat wealth. The counties ot Las s n and Modoc are comparatively little known to the general hotly of Californians. They arc in an out of the way region, which it takes as toug to reach by the present mode of conveyance as the other side of the Coutiucut. They contain good agri cultural laud, aud their settlement has only been kept back through want of means for transjHirtatiun.— / Itcno Journal. MATTKUS AT TIIK FaIK UltOl’JittS. —Au addition has been made to tbe fair grouuds of forty feet on the south side. The cuttle sheds and further accommodations for race stock will lie built along this side. Tiiis is an important change, as the cattle were last year placed where they did not receive proper attention. The new shells will put them where all concerned may visit them with out having to cross the grounds. Mr. Theodore Winters will tit up st tides on the east side tor the u-o of his runners. Men ute now engaged in rakiug off the truck aud preparing it for the hardening process which will not ho applied until shortly before the fair. The track will lie i the best of condition, the fences all in lirst-class order, aud with the secoud crop uf clover and the growing cot tonwoods, our fair grounds will rival those at Sacramento during the pres ent year.—[Reno Uiaette.

An eccentric Londoner of nearly ninety, wtio lias given s|x.H'ial atten tion tlir ugliout piore than half of this period to the collection and classification of reports of criminal trials, is getting discouraged, and says: “It may lie that uiy increas ing years render the task more dif i ult, but my opi iiou is that crime of the worst character is becoming so | prevalent that no oue tuau can keep p.ee with it.
