The yellow fever at Memphis last year
was not pronounced epidemic by the
Hoard ?>( Health until the 24th of August,
at which time there had been 306 cases
and W deaths, extending over a period of
four or five weeks. At that date, however,
there was a much larger population remaining
in town than there is now. Thus
far the present summer the deaths by
fever liuve not exceeded the deaths from
other causes, and under this rule no epidemic
has yet been declared.
Thk gambling fraternity in New York is
nothing if not progressive. A comprehensive
raid, planned under the direction

single capture, it being subsequently
ascertained that the various establishments
menaced were in quiet but efficient communication
by means ofa telephone clr%
cnit. From the first house entered a
whisper of warning went out to all the
others, and the game, or rather games,
inntantly disappeared. Thus the electric
upark, which is such a terror to evil-doers
generally, is sometimes drafted into their
service with obvious advantage.
.Inns Brows, Ju., writes from Kansas,
where he its looking up the condition of
the colored refugees, that 7,000 have reached
there since the exodus began, many of
whom have found work in different parts
0/ the State. There is such an immense
white movement to Kansas, however, that
the labor market is overstocked, and at
Topeka alone, 200 negroes are dependent
on public charity, half of whom are sick
and gloomy enough. The State Freedmen's
Relief Association also has hundreds
on its hands at different points and is nearly
out of funds at that, and Brown thinks
that there is still a loud call for active
I charity at the East.
There is said to be a general movement
in fMiirtrti.n IA ateilra f/\m fhn alirht.llAltr <
rule. It has been commenced by the men r
employed in the furniture manufactories, \
some hundreds of whom have quit work i
and are endeavoring to foment similar ac- t
lion on the part of the employes in other i
trades. The factory owners cannot, - of t
course, comply with the demand, as it i
would increase the cost of their produc- v
tions twenty per cent over those they come r
into competition with, thus forcing them r
either to go out of business or sell thfiir t
wares at a ruinous sacrifice. The effort t
to extend the strike has been a failure thus 1
far, but the men in it are incited by e
tho scoundrely professional agitators to I
persevere with the delusive hope that 1:
they will eventually succeed. The Balti- l
more American says it is a curious illustra- 1
tion of their lack of thought that they are I
proposing to pool their savings and start a t
co-operative factory of their own. It is r
evident to everybody except these wilfully c
blind men that if they enter into the trade t
they must do so under the same conditions t
as other producers. In order to manufac- (
tu re goods at or near the same cost as other
workshops they must labor for as many
hours as their rivals, for to run for a less
number of hours simply means to pay 20
per cent more for labor than the current
nte. But such a plain fact seems beyond ,
the comprehension of these infatuated in- ,
dividual*. Their eyes may, perhaps, be '
opened when they come to make the nrac- I
tical test and find that It is impossible to (
observe i he eight-hour rule without losing (
their investment.

Col. PookmaN furnishes some excellent j
reasons why the proposed new railroad
from St. ClairsvUle to intersect the <
Tuscarawas Valley Road should be an ex- i
tension of the present narrow gauge, which
might be ultimately carried through J
Athens >r lUrrisvllle to Cadix and beyond,
instead of the standard gauge road contemplated
down Woods Run and intersect- j
ing the Valley Road near Hardesty's. j
1. The wide gauge roau win cost neariy '
double as much as ihe narrow gauge. The
narrow gauge road will do all the business
and com less (or running expenses and re- |
pain*. i
If a narrow gauge is constructed tho (
U. & St. U. Company could run it and add ,
verv little to tho present running expense
??ithat road. A wide gauge will require a ,
new comnany, or at least a full crew of
new hands, and new machinery.
3. A narrow gauge to the mouth of Jug
Run would furnish the connection at the
nest point to accommodate both the east
and west travel and would be a link in the
extension of a road through a section of
country that would make it a paving road.
A - .1?~ WAA,!^ P,.?
would add largely to tho expense of all
-pawenjcers from the west coming to St
C'lairsville, and make a road that would
never pay running expenses, and one that
never could or would have an extension
that would make it pay.
4. The construction of a narrow gauge
would save the present road from disaster
and tfie enterprising citizens who have invested
in it from ruin, and fully accommodate
the wants of the town, without additional
investment, perhaps, beyond the
$30,000. A wide gauge ineanB an additional
assessment, and two roads that will
not pay expenses, the second one belonging
to the corporation and to be supported
by taxation.
The construction of this road will not
wve the county seat at St. Olairaville, for
sooner or later it will be removed to Bellaire,
and when that occurs the wide gauge
will be of little or no use to anybody, but
a narrow gauge oxtended through Harrison
county would always be a paying

Wanting trees whose fruits shall be the

his goes to prove how much more philolophical
than political are the advanced
deas of our cotemporary. If the women
lo not see the necessity of the enering
wedge, how is the distant
md general fruition to be brought
ibout? The trouble with most
idvanced ideas is that they are far
oo great and good to be of any practical

Ays in one of his recent books that if we

What constitutes a legal residence for
i specified term? The question is of inerest
in many controversies; hence it
nay be well to bear in mind an official
>pinion just rendered by Attorney Gen>ral
Schoonmaker, of New York, who, in
>ehalf of the trustees of an asylum for the
nBane, was asked to construe the followng
provision of a law passed by the Legisature
of 1870:
Hereafter no person who has not relided
within this State for at least one
rear next prior to application for his or
leradinision into any State asylum for the
diotic, blind, insane or deaf and dumb,
ihall be admitted as an inmate therein.
The gist of the Attorney General's opinon
is that he knows of no statute in
ffhich the word "reside" oH'tfesidence"
iaa been construed to require actual and
:ontinuous personal presence. Residence
n the legal Bense signifies the home or
lomicileof a person, the place where his
ights as a citizen are exercised, and
vbere he is eligible to office. It Is used
n this sense in tax laws, and in the elecion
laws, and where a person has a fixed
esidence of thfs kind, his actual and conin
uous personal presence is in no way
mpdrtant to preserve his right to
ote or to remain liable to taxation. He
nay exercise the right of suffrage by
eturning to his legal residence on elecion
day, and is liable to assessment and
axation whether actually present at his
egal residence or not during the time the
issessment rolls are required to be made,
le may be absent upon business, or for
lealtb or pleasure, as frequently and as
ong as may be agreeable to him, withont
osing his residence or impairing any of
lis rights or privileges as a citizen. In
he contemplation of law he continues to
eside at the place where his home is looted,
provided he is absent with the inention
of returning to his abode as soon
is the purposes of his absenco may be ac:omplished.

July 28.?The Congressional '
Committee, ot which Hon. Hendrick B. "
Wright is Chairman, began inquiring to- a
Jay into the cause of depression in trade
ind industry, L. J. Gage, caahierofthe
First National Hank, was thn first wifnp#? t
He regarded the present supply of money j
in the country as ample, although ten |
t'eara back wo had much more money in t
rircnlation. yet the banking of Chicago is v
rounder tnan ever before. Ho thought c
the return of prosperity began about
iighteen months ago, and the outlook
jo* is very favorable. .
In answering the question of Charles
Wright, he said doubtless the withdrawal e
)f the currency had operated to depress B
business during tho past ten years, but ?
!iad not operated so as to be > very essen- j
:ial factor. The depression was a reaction 11
;oward the normal standard which had P
seen naturally disturbed bv the war and
its results. The prosperity of business
nen and the rate of the iucrease of popuation
were greater ten ' years ago in
Chicago than they are now, but the ?
unountof merchandise handled here now tt
s vastly greater than ten years ago. On o
jeing asked what he would suggest in the a
vay of legislation, he said he would repeal p
he legal tender quality of United States
lotes, would pay them on demand to bearer,
vould make sold and silver dollars inter*
hangable at the United States sub-treas- J!
iries, would press the issue and retire the *
he outstanding notes under the value of *c
Ive dollars, as quickly as possible., It J
?ould be a mistake to repeal the National ?
>anklaw. ?
Geo. Schneider, President of the Nation- 1
1 Bank of Illinois, testified that he did 81
lot believe in increasing the volume of

iess, which began to revive a year and a h
lalf ago, is in a fine condition; though ?
