Vrf.it will be in order for Democratic
conventions to denounce the steal. Tho
West Virginia Democratic convention,
however, that meets at Purkereburg on the
2J|, will not take a hand on that side, in
consideration of the conspicuous agency of
ilr. Ktnnaon thetloor of the House* in
drumming for votes on behalf of the pass*
sse of the bill over the President's veto,
' ami nlso in consideration of the further
fact that Senators Davis aud Camden and
Representatives Moge and Wilson all cooperated
with him in passing the bill over
*?A veto. Iti.n therefore safe to say tliat
the Purkersburg convention will be entirely
oblivious on the "steal."
The facts in regard to the passage of the
' teal" are easily told. I u a nut shell they
are as follows: The bill was passed over
the veto in the House by the votes of 65
Republicans', 51 Democrats, 2 Independent
Democrats, and I Greenbaekers. Of those
who stood by the President and sustained
his veto, MO were Republicans, 24 Democrat,
and 1 Republican Greenbacker.
Id the Senate there were IS Republicans
and 23 Democrats who co operated in passing
the bill over the veto, and 12 Republican?,
II Democrats and 1 Independent who
, united in sustaining the veto.
Now let the music begin in all the Democratic
organs about the "steal." These
are the facts.

Corn uh I'm-tors of l'ro*i>erlty.
It is now estimated that the wheat crop
ol this country may exceed by 30,000,000
bushels the famous crop of 1SS0, which was
the largest crop ever raised in this country,
having barely fallen short of 500,000,000.
Not only will the crop be immense as to
quantity, but it will also be of an extra
choice quality.
The cash value of this great crop this
tear is yet a matter of speculative opinion.
It may exceed $500,000,000, or say, one
dollar per bushel. The crop of 1SS0 was
wonli about >175,000,000. This represents
an enormous addition to the national
wealth. But great as it is it does not reaeh
the value of the corn crop. Mr. Jledill, of
the Chicago Tribune, who is now in Europe,
writes a letter from France in which he
says "corn is king." He holds that the
matter of good and bad times in th& country
turns upon the success of the corn crop.
He therefore expresses himself with some
anxiety as to the prospects of the crop this
year as determining the question of our
business prosperity. A great wheat crop,
important as it is, will not give us business
activity and prosperity, unless it it is supplemental
by a fair crop of the great staple
ol tie West.
TLe corn crop in 1SS0 produced 1,717,?
W.543 bushels, valued at $079,714,492, oi
about 35 per cent more than the wheat. Ii
*as this crop that furnished a great busi
ness to the railroads, and that fattened tlx
ho^s that put an immense surplus o
money into the pockets of the Westerr
farmers. This surplus money permeated
and stimulated all branches of ti.ide, and
quickened the loreign and domestic ex
changes of the country into the full tide o!
business activity.
It is gratifying, to know, in view of the
importance of the corn crop, that even
day that passes over our heads is enlarging
its promise. It is now estimated that the
yield this year will probably be 1,500,000,'
000 bushels,',instead of only 1,000,000,000
bushels, as was feared a month or two ago
At W cents per bushel, and the price will
hardly go below this, it will be worth
S7o0,000,c00 in the form of corn and hogs,
With $1,250,000,000 added to the wealth
of the country by two of its crops, saying
nothing ot .cotton, tobacco, rice, sugar,
hay and potatoes, and sayiug nothing of
our fruits or ot our immense shipments ol
Petroleum, or tho large product of our
mines, we can reasonably look forward to
a year of large business. The present indications
jioint to extensive shipments
abroad, but not at the expense of a decided
reduction in the cost of living at home.
Uvins; at home promises now to be reduced
at least 25 per cent ns compared
with the highest prices current during tho
last twelve montlis.
L'nleis, therefore, all present signs prove
disappointing me year 1SS2-83 promises

On the Arbitrary l'ilot Itnlm?lie Re- ei

Washington*, August 4.?Referring to
the pending discussion over the pilot rules ^
governing right of way on Western rivers, ^
Supervising Inspector General of Steam b<
, Vessels Dumont said today: w
"I have read with a great deal of interest ^
, the account in the Marine Journal of the ^
27th ult of a meeting of pilots at Cincinnati te
, for the consideration and expression of m
. opinion in relation to the change of passing ^
. signals adopted by the Board of Supervising ni
Inspectors in 1SS0. As that account only bi
, purports to be an abstract of proceedings rc
, of the meeting, I presume evidence 1,1
, upon wliich it is assumed that the recent p]
terrible collision on the Ohio river was
causcd by such change of rule must have a(
been one of the parts omitted from there? c\
port. As I have not seen any of the evi- ?c
t denco taken by the Inspectors at Wheel- r(
ine, who are investigating the cause of the g(
collision, Jit would be premature for j,
i nm tn nnaitivwlv ilonv ilio nooort;?no -
I of the pilots in that resoect, hut until evi,
dence is forthcoming I shall feel obliged
I to raaintaiu the assertion made in an interview
with me recently published at Pitts- T
1 burg. It is farther my opinion that under
. the present rule a collision is impossible
I if the rule is strictly obeyed. The tii
pilots, 1 see, take exception to my :c
assertion that the pilot rules, past and ..
i present, are in conflict with ihe "United "
States Statutes, Section 4233, Rules 18 to m
, 24, and therefore to get the rules changed w
| as they would want them it would be
5 necessary to apply to Congress, and
they refer to Section 4412, Kevised
i Statutes, for proof that the power to make of
regulations for passing is with the hi
. Board of Supervising Inspeetors, and they
1 quote the statute to prove their assertions,
i and I admit that the statute upon its face
, is strongly in their favor. But as a matter Tl
of fact they evidently have not considered a,
the rules and regulations of the Board of tfc
; Supervising Inspectors. They must be con- cc
i sisteut with the statutes to have the force m
of law. When contrary thereto, as in the 0,
f case at present with Western pilot rules, c,
the Courts have invariably, bo far as I ei
have information upra the subject, ac- w
cepted the p atutea and discarded the jc
, rules. In making the suggestion that tl|
Congre:fl ihouia l?o appealed to, I was
1 nnfinir in y.u.ri fiiitli. ami flfl T thnnvht. far

"I regret that there is such a strong ad- fr
verse feeling on the Ohio river to the recent
change in pilot rules and could I be a
Bhown evidence in the shape of Sl
facts that the rule was an erroneous
and improper one, I should be the
first to advocate a change. I should be
most pleased to make the acquaintance of Sf
representative Western river men, and
learn from them in a personal interview tk
their reason for their opposition. I should
be glad to have a delegation of them visit
. me here." ui

Birth to nSlooNtroNlty. ^
Philadelphia. August 4.?A child with
two heads, four arms, and four legs was ^
born near Bordentown, N. J., on .Sunday ^
of Mrs. Mar}' Smith, the wife of Henry
Smith, a well known butcher engaged in
business in Bordentown. In order to save
the life of thfl mother tho operation of
embryotomy was performed, and the mon- ^
stroeity only lived a few hours after it was
brought into the world. So wonderful and pi
j perfect is its formation tfiat.Dr. Dye, one th
of the attending physicians, has had the or
double babe preserved in aiconoi lor er- th
: amination by physicians. Mre. Smith is a w;
i healthy woman of 24 or 25 years. She is lo
. already the mother of twins, which were oj
i born two years ago unattended by any nn- w
? usual circumstances. The birth- on.:Sun* a
. day last took place in Groveville, about bi
three miles from Bordentown, at the house ai
lire. Smith's mother, Mrs. Van Blunt,
111 wan attended by Dr. Younir, o[ ltorintown,
nuil Dr. .Dye, of Cromwlcks.
uero was nothing apparently inthophy* p
cal condition of Mrs. Smith previous to
jr Illness, to indicnto that she was about
become the mother of any other than a A
itural child. Dr. Dye was railed in first,
it certain indication^ pointed out the
Httssity- of calling another physician in
nsultation. Dr. Young was summoned,
id seven hours after his arrival the monrosity
was born. An examination show*
1 that it was even n more wonderful be- *f

?ads, arms and legs were ceparate anil Vl

ilow the shouldcMiludes down the sides, tc
iverlng almost one-half of each abdomen, g,
ade the bodies appear almost like

the individual bodies except tc
here the connection was made. Each al
fant, to speak of them as two, was natur- q
ly proportioned and of normal sire. The ..
eight of each was seveu pounds and the 4>
x female. It was found that the connect- at
g band of flesh was filled with arteries ni
ul veins, and that the life of one was de- q
mdeut upon that, of the other. Whether
ere existed two sets of ribs on the side c(
litre the bodies joined it was impossible a]
determine without an autopsy, but from \i
1 external appearances it seemed that ir
iere were two sets of ribs that were only tl
trtially developed. The lungs were sepa- ol
te, but it could not be ascertained 1c
hether there were two hearts or not. The c<
onstrosity possesses two backbones, two tl
oinachs, and two set* of livers, while the it
ilvis seemed to be joined at its anterior Si
>rtions. Taken altogether, there was ai

New Yokk, August 4.?The rush of 0
tight to the railroad piers and depots in Ct

lie boast of the railroad companies that ?
ey could promptly handle any freight g)
ought to them for shipment is about to f(
j severely tested. The men at work in T
. John's Park Depot, surrounded as they w
e with .1 guard of forty police- a
en, make very poor headway with tl
le freight Early in the forenoon three p
' the five doorways open for the reception si
freight on the Laight street side were p
impletely blocked with freight, although al
p to that time comparatively few trucks tl
id discharged their loads. The platforms tl
ick of the cars was also filled with boxes, Ii
irrels and bales of goods of all descrip- ji
ons Hudson street, in front of the depot, ii
as crowded with freight cars, so that
lere was only a narrow passageway for Si
ie usual street trallic. n:
At Pier 1 of the Pennsylvania line, the qi
ish of freight isso great that Battery Place tj
i front of the pier is crowded with loaded g"|
ucks waiting a chance to unload. At piers pi
4,5,16 and 39 of the same road, the gangs ?
Italians and Jews employed by the com- fi,
my are kept constantly on the run, en- o!
;avorinj; to dispose of the increased ship- p,
ents. Piers 32, l.'l and 14, used by the d
ew. Jersey Central, give evidence of in- jg
cased traffic, the depot filled with U
eight and several trucks are on West oi
reet outside of the depot waiting to dis- jr
)se of their loads. The depot of the tl
ew York Central <k Hudson River tl
lau, ioot 01 mrclay street, was partly fa
osed, and a line of loaded trucks patient- nj
waiting to be unloaded. The doors of hi
le Star-Union depot, pier 3S, kept closed e*
itil near noon, so that the freight receiv- ta
I, and which completely filled the front p:
the depot, could he disposed of. g]
At the meeting of strikers in Jersey City pi
resident McNamara stated that the ni
lances of their winning the fight were vi
utter than ever, that the rush of west- h
jund freight had begun, and every day m
ould muke it more Uillicult for the ai
mipanies to get along with the new b
mds. He stated that he had receiv- fr
1 an anonymous letter, which, after flat- p
ring him with praise for keeping the p
ten together, went on to say that the time n
id now arrived for the men to give in, ti
id that he should be responsible for the r
,en holding out longer. Mr. McNatnara C
randed this as an effort of the rail- h
iad to discourage the ineu and to in- u
rnidate him. lie said that forty sub- ti
xiption lists had been left at various o
aces in Newark and that the appeal was h
:rtain to be liberally responded to. On n
icount of the ignorance of the new
leckers a great deal of freight belonging

I want to repeat here, what I have said
In these letters in each particular locality
of the far West, that as an Agricultural
country, it can never amount to much.
After you pass the P.ocky Mountains, nothing
will grow without "irrigation, and a
country that has no rains can never coin*
pete with those sections where nature
does the irrigating. In this great belt of
non-agricultural localities I will class a
part of Kansas, all of Colorado, all of New
Mexico, all of Arizona, all of California, all
of Oregon, and all of Nevada, Utah, Washington,
Montana and Idaho Territories.
For minerals, and minerals only, aro these
States and Territories valuable. Outside of
a few rich valleys in each of them, comparatively
nothing is raised. Certainly outside
of California, Oregon and Utah, nearly
everything that the peoplo cat and wear
aro produced in the Central or Eastern
Suites. If I ever go West to live, it will
never be beyond the Missouri.
in my optuion, the richest coal and silver
producing portion of our national domain
is in Arizona and Now Mexico. # It is
fancy, but the ores nrc nevertheless there
in fnaxhaustible quantities. The reason !
that these Territories are behind the rest
in the development of their resources, is j
because of the warlike nature of the Indian J
tribes, and the hitherto lack of railroad *
outfits. With the exception of the Apaches, !
the Indians are pretty well subdued, and
the Atchison, Topeka Santa Fe and <
Southern Pacific railroads have recently
opened up these two great Territories to
the people outside. From now on you may
expect to hear of wonderful discoveries of
silver, copper and gold in that locality.
The average speed of railroads west of (
the Missouri river is less than 23 miles an ,
hour; and at all railroad eating houses the
regular price of meals is SI. Ills much t
warmer m Arizona than in the Gulf States, <
which are in the same latitude. It is ac- r
counted for in the absence of moisture in f
the atmosphere and soil. The grouud is t
as dry and as parched as a desert; and to c
see a stream of running water is a rarity. c
The distance from Wheeling to Kansas i
City is 067 miles; to Deming, New Mexico, (
is if,100; to Tucson, Arizona, 2,319 inilce; 1
to San Francisco, riu the Southern Pacific s
route, 3,207 miles, and from 8/n Francisco c
to Wheeling by the Central and Union' a
Pacific railroads, is 2,92S miles. Tho rail- a
road fare from Wheeling to Tucson is c
>100 30, and from Tucson to San Francisco c
it is $55, from San Francisco to Wheeling I
by either the Central or Southern Pacific 1
routes, is $120 50. The sleeping car fare t
from Wheeling to San Francisco via \
Southern Pacific is $20; and returning by
the Southern Pacific it is $19. If any one
contemplates the trip that I have just ,
taken, I would advise them, by
ill means to prepare a lunch bas- t
ket for use beyond the Missonri t
river, as the fare they set at the railroad {
jating houses is only of the plain, substantial
order, and costs $3 a day. A $7 bus
ket will run a man nearly from the Mis- '
souri river to the Pacific ocean, aud besides, t
it is quite fashionable. More than half ,
the people I traveled with spread their own j
nnHiPti nn tlio mnrnl?lo fnlilM
ing car, and fared much better tiian those ,
Df us who had to jntnp out of the train j
three times a day and eat with our hats on,
and pay one dollar for tough eggs and beef j
steak, without vegetables or luxuries. ,
The best hotel at Tucson is the .Palace; [
at San Francisco the Palace, or the Bald- (
win; at Salt Lake City'the Walker House, j
and at Omaha the American. The oldest j
city I saw in the trip was Santa Fe, the ,
busiest was Tombstone, the coolest, j
San Francisco?for I almost- froze,?tho t
prettiest, Salt Lake City. The best fruit \
country I saw was Los Angeles, California; (
the best wheat locality, Salt Lake Valley; j
the best grazing section, Wyoming Terri- t
ton*; the richest farming section, in a \
general way, lies between Kansas, Nebras- \
ka, Iowa and Illinois; the best climate,
California; the grandest scenery was in New
Mexico, and the hardest looking citizens
were the greasers near the old Mexico j
line. . ?

New York, August 4.?General business
the past week has been moderately
active. The number of southern and
western buyers in tbo market is larger than
usual at tliis period. The impression has
been industriously circulated that owing to
:lie strike of the freight handlers difficulty
km anticipated in shipping goods by the
trunk lines, hence there has been few
jrders for this market. This impression is
jnjust; no difficulty whatever is being experienced
in shipping all freight offering,
md New York merchants are confident
of their ability to till
promptly ull orders sent them. A good
miscellaneous dry goods trade 'has been
Jone, though buyers are still cautious and
prudent in purchases, but more freedom is
jbhervablo us the season goes on. Jmrge
:ash purchases ore made when inducements
are offered. In grain, after the rapid
leclme the latter part of hut week, prices
gradually advanced until Thursday, when
hey reached about the highest figures of
ihe week for wheat, and the market closes j
ivith a reaction below the highest noted.

The market for iron has been dull, but

Philadelphia, August 4.?While Aaron
Skull, of No. 1007 Frankford road, was
ivalking along the Delaware wharves, near
Poplar street, he noticed an object floating
around the pier at that point, which, at
Sret sight, he supposed was a log. Out of
curiosity he approached uearer, when, to
bis astonishment, he found it to be a human
body. Procuring assistance he succeeded
in'getting it ashore, and was horrified
to see nothing but a trunk,
without head or arms, and with
the person so much decomposed as to
make it an impossibility to tell the sex.
The police were at once notified and the
Coroner informed of the discovery. The
remains were removed to the "Morgue,
where they await identification, which, by
the way, isalmostan impossibilitv. Inquiry
in the upper section of the city last night
elicited the fact that some Kensington fishermen
have been using the body as bait to
attract eels. Just how long this has been
going on could not be ascertained, and
owing to the frightfully decomposed state
of the remains, the terrible crime that may
have been committed will probably never
be brought to light.
I'lieTrouble Between the Creek IndlnnN

Little Kock, Ark., August 4.?The
trouble begun in the northwestern part of
me uret-K nation last week, by the arrest of
i cnminiil and his rescue, and the murder
d( his jailer, CapL Sam Scott, by a gang of
the Sauda' men, is not yet settled. U.S.
Marshal Beck, who was in Ft. Smith yesterday,gives
the following view of the situation:"
Monday night Sands men were camped
on Pecan Creek, nine miles from Muscogee,
in command of a noted desperado
named Dick Glass. Chief Checot, of the
Creek Nation, was in camp eighteen miles
distant with 550 men, and the citizens
were still coming to his aid. He says that
when the command reaches 800 he will
arrest the twelve slavers of Captain Scott.
The Sands men were called on by Agent
Tufts, at Muscogee,who advised them to surrender
the men wanted by the authorities as
the only means of preventing bloodshed.
This they emphatically refused to do,and declared
that they intended to stand by their
comrade to the bitter end. Great "excitement
prevails over the nation. As "matters
now stand, the Glass gang must either
disperse and let Captain Scott's murderer
take his chances with the otlicereor bloodshed
will follow.
