fluences are lues felt, there was a gain
of J1.6 per cent. ovr the previous

March there was a heavy gain, 38.1
per cent, over the March previous, or,
omitting New York, of 25.3 per
cent., and for the three months of the
preterit year of 32.(5 per cent. Thete
figures show a I atisfactory advance
over the early months of Isst year,

No gold was exported from New York
last week, as the rates of exchange
are lielow the shipping point, but It
would ba prematuie to conclude that
they have permanently ceaied. The
iwrriveu prnsanie in demand, and a
small sdvance in raten, would cause
the outlhw to resume. Oui inports

Australia. Should they prove car
rect, the silver question will have
another complication. The Bank of
France has been accumulating gold of
late, it is said, in consequence of a de
cline that has occurred in the price of
Tanama canal shares, and fears that
the commission sent by the French
Government to Panama will report
unfavorably, and the hoped-for aid
from the government be withheld.
Anything atrongly nnfavorable to the

panic, for the holders of the stock

almost every class of society
The vote in Congress against an tin
limned coinage of silver has stopped
one possibility ol mischief, but it is
pretty evident that there ia no inten
tuition to siispond the coinage of nil
ve- dollar. The consequence is that,
should events at any time cause an
, increase in the shipments of gold,
fia&nce and commerce will fall into a
state of anxious 'uncertainty, and a
general feeling of uneasiness be pro
duced that is most unfavorable to
tride activity. A liability to mistrust
and business commotion is one of the
woes the continuance cf tho silver
coinage keeps hanging over us. Tha
C7iif!iVi; reports: "General business
is rather quiet for the moment." The
more favorable wealher and the com
mencement of the subsidence uf the
floods, together with the gradual re
sumption of transport itiou, will
probably change this gloomy spot
into brjrhter hues. In KnjUnd

Bo Hi ths two great political parties
are pledged to civil service reform,
"to correct the irregularities of the
tar ff and to reduce the surplus," but
neither party in Cjcgres has shown
a d "position to reueem lis pieuen.
The Republicans want no tariff re-
forn. which disturbs the present tariff;
no civil service reform unless the
Presidotl accepts the Republican
standard of appointments and re
movals: end ruaoT Democrat are
avowedly nppoxd to civil service re
form, and while pretending to favor a
revision of the tariff so as to reduce
the surplus, refuse t) originate a bill
for that purpose and oppose and de
nounce the reforms proposed by
others. The people, are growing rest
leas and impatient, and demand legis
lation for the promised reform. Cleve
land is faithful to his promlsss, and if
the Democrats fail to sustain him,
they prove recreant to their pledges.
The civil service bill was introdnced
by Pendleton, a Democrat, panged by
a Republican 8enate, signed by
Republican President; it waa the
Democrats' battle cry in the last Presi
dential election, and the people will not
be ratifiiled with any sham reform
Indeed, it is no strained conclusion to
saythat the ntter deceit and mockery
of Republicans in dealing with civil
service reform defeated James G
Blaine and elected Giover Cleveland
who is pledged to a better standard of
civil service, and he muft fulfill that
pledge to sustain himself before the
country. In short, he must continue
to enforce a higher and better stand

effort in a man wLo hatl stolen

Bbbj.iv, April 12. In the upper
house of the Prussian Landtag to-day
twenty-eight Libtra's supported a
motion asking the government l snu-
niit mother ecclesiastical bill, eo
framed as to restore peace between
the Vatican and Prussia, and at the
same time maintain proper safeguards
lor rrasaian ngnts.
Debate waa beeun in the Upper
House of the Prussian Diet to-day on
the amended ecclesiastical bill.
Dr. Knpp. Bishop of Fulda, said he
was gratified at the conciliatory atti
tude of the government, but insisted
that the bill would not suffice to attain
the object desired. He nrged the
adoption of his previous amendments
on the basis of a further agreement
Pnnce Bismarck said that the gov
ernment had not yet arrived at a de
cision on the question. He had al
ready taken the full responsi
bility lor the May laws as
fighting laws. The government
had never intended that the
laws should be permanent. No loss of
dignity would result to Emperor
William in attempting to meet tie
wishes of hii Catholic subjects. He
(Bismarck) thought that the time had
arrived to abolish the fighting laws.
He preferred t) treat directly with the
Pope because he had found the Popo
belter disposed toward Germany than
the majority in the Reichstag. In
conclusion he asked the House to pais
the government measure, which, be
said, would enable the ministry to se
cure a wider basis for further nego
tiations. The general debate on toe
bill waa then clcsed. The eeparate
clauses will be d scuseed to-morrow
Dr. Lncius, Minister of Agriculture,
replying to questions, said that the
government did to think it expedient
to increase the import duties at pres
ent on corn and cattle, and that im
ports on wool were out of the ques
tion. He said that the agricultural
distress on the continent waa severer
than in Germany, and that when nec
essary the government would submit
protective measures.

Lame btbaxiiig.
To rob against law leads to the pen
itentiary; to rob through law confers
wealth and respectability. Of this
latter kind of rascality watering stock
and either similar practices ate exam
ples, unfortunately only too familiar
Frauds ol this nature are only too fa
liar nud are common where population
is dense, but in new and distant locali
ties, where population is sparse, the
evil of robbing under legal forma is no
leeB prevalent. The New York IlcraUl
l a published statements of this way
of stealing lands in the Territory of
New Mexico that causes a thrill of in
dignation in the breast of every hones!
minded rei.dor. The climate of New
Mrxici is dry, and tbera are immen.se
tracts that are at waterless as the
desert. The consequence is that land
sharks select the borders o( streams,
land containing springs or water cours'
ea, lor their stealing. 10 accompnan
their thef ta they employ their Mexi
can herdsman to enter such tracts as
they desire, swear that they have
residence npon it and have made the
requisite improvements. When the
papers are obtained the property la
made over to the employer, who
thus obtains a vast estate of the only
choice lands unoccupied. Owning
tho w.usr, be is lord and master over
the country behind his possessions,
tor only on his land can the people
obtain access to it. The land back cf
the etreame is usually fit only for
stock-feeding, but being without water
it ia mostly left undisturbed in the
bands of government. Upon this un
occupied land the land-thief feeds his
herds al will, without any other ex
pense to tiimsett than tue poor pay
given to the Mexican herder. Should
an honest settler here and there have
acquired bis 160 acres, and his posses
sion be in the way of the land-thief,
he must sell it at the respectable thief's
valuation or be driven oil by rifle pow
er. This is but a glance at the villainy
that is going on day by day, and that
is by no means confined to N'ew Mex
ico alone. Honest workmen appeal
fur fair pay for their work, and with
whst toil and suffering they obtain it

The news of the appointment and
confirmation of Senator Howell E.
Jackson to be Judge of the United
States Court of the Sixth Judicial Cir
cuit was received early yesterday
afternoon by private telegram and in
little while became generally known.
Following the dispatches of Saturday
and SuLday mornings it was not a
ma ter of surprise, it wai, neverthe
less, a general tiitmo of conversation,
among lawyers and bus cess men
specially, who naturally lelt a per
ioral interest in the appointment.
Speculation was rite as to the ell ct
it would have in the politics of th
State. There were no two opiniotia
alike except as to one thing the em
barrassment of Gov. Bate.
I would not be in his shoes t
niht for a great deal," a knowing one
remarked. "He will have to select
Senator Jackson's successor, and he
knows he will have to be very carnul
how be does it if he would not utterly
desjrny all hope of being elected to
the Senate when the Legislature
meets in January. Knowing bun ai
I do, I feel pretty sure he will appoint
Borne West Tennessee man which will
give his friends an opportunity ta
claim then that both Senators are
fn;m that division and one of
them ought to be dropped. Col. Al
bert McNeil of "Bolivar teems
to me to stand a g"od
showing for the appointment.
1 believe h would accept it u tend
ered him, though it would give him
but eight months in the Senate, and I
co not believe he would come out as
candidate against Bate when the
Legislature meets. He is not likely to
chorss any man t j keep the seat
warm for him who is now
spoken of in connection with the
Henatorship. The making 01 an ap
pointment can do him no good, at
best, but, on tha other band, it may
utterly spoil hischanees."
Another said: "The retirement ot
Senator Jackson will cause a general
scramble.' It wi'l completely change
the complexion of politics in the
State. Men who had all their
plans so beautifully laid before wnl
not know where to look now. I thought
I had a pretty good grasp on the situa
tion, but I am completely at sea."
An enthusiastic Jackson man said:
"I am gratified beyond measure by the
high compliment which the President
has paid Sacator Jackson, but we will
send him back in January, whether-
he wants to g) or not.
A prophet and a son ot a propuet
said: "My opinion is that the nomi
nation of Jackson to the bench is in
the interest of Porter's candidacy for
the Senate. Jackson prefers Por
ter to Hate. Governor Rato
is now placed in a dilemma. He
lare not appoint a mere personal re
tainer to keep the seat warm for him
self until next fall, and if he appoints
any prominent public man like House,
Whitthorne or McMillin,he will raise
a formidable competitor againrt him
self and divide the strength of tho low
tax Democracy of Tennessee. Gover
nor Rate's friends claim that he will
solve the problem successfully, and
that ho will be aided by the personal
counsel and support of Senator Harris,
who is known to have opposed the
nomination of Jackson. .
Surveys of the route to be pursued
by the Iron Mouma n railroad on this
side of the river have been completed,
and the map showing them was seen
yesterday by an Appeal man at the
office of the City Engineer, Maj. Mer
iwether. It has been decided to cross
the Mississippi opposite Mound City,
at the foot of Tennessee chute, cross
ing Wolf river some distance west of
the Chesapeake and Ohio, and pursu
ing almost a direct course thence to
McGhee's Station, now the junction
of the Kane as City, Springfield and
Memphis and the Memphis and
Charleston railroada. This route will
practically circle the city. A bianch
will be run into the northern end of
the city, where the company proposes
to have its depot. The dis ance
from the point at which it crosses the
Mississippi to McGee's Station iss-iven
miles, and very little grading will
have to be done. The rise is about
sixty feet in the entire distance.
Strike or freight Hrakemrn en the
Mobile nud Ohio Kon.l.
Jackson, Tknn., April 12 The
freight brakemen on the whole north
ern division of the Mobile and Ohio
railroad, extending from Cairo, 111., to
Oktlona, Miss., are on a strike. About
the first of the monta the brakemen
demanded an advance of their wages
from 50 to $55 per month. A com
mittee was sent to Mobile to confer
with General Manager Ttlcott. The
committee returned Saturday without
obtaining any satisfaction. The brake
men bad given Manager Talcott nntil
to-dav and still their terms are not
granted. It is thought there will be a
neneral strike along the wnole.linein
few days unless the brakemen's wages
are advanced. The outlook is gloomy.
The freight trains are all side tracked
and railroad business is almost sus
pended. Not a coupling pin can be
found in any of the Mobile shops.
Making tke Harvey.
Birmingham. Ala.. April 12. An
engineering party started from here
to-day to make a anrvey for the Kan
sas City, Fort Scott and Gulf railroad's
line from here to Memphis, a char
ter for the road is expected to arrive
here to-morrow, the papers having
been sent to Montgomery yesterday.
It is generally believed that work will
begin on the road right away. Kansas
City officials admit that they have an
entirely satisfactory understanding
with Prasident Raoul of the Georgia
Central road, who is publicly credited
with the design of extending his
Goodwater branch here to meet jhem.
An engineering party is organizing to
