in July to make a formal official examina- rai
tion of the Northern, Union and Central an

the lines of the last two roads, and found cis
them in excellent condition in all respects, thi
and saw that both were doing a large thi

tracks and beds tirst-class, equipments frc
etc., oi the best. On the Northern tri
I Pacific I had a very interesting trip. I pe
(went over the entire western section, from tic
; Portland to the scene of the present track ab
laying east, a distance of 550 miles. I found ho
thatthe>ork of construction is progressing mi
with remarkable rapidity and in the best pa
possible manner. The cuts are wide, with In
the sides clear and well sloped ami well an
guttered. The embankments are broad, bu
well built, and very wide beyond an
tiie ties. The road bed is just as good as en
it can be made, and the ballasting is ag
perfect Iu my opinion, fast trains ca
could even now safely be run over et,
the entire line. The, construction has co
been, in brief, veiy effectively done, and I an
do not hesitate to say that the Northern ou
Pacific's western end is a first-class road.
There is now a very largp force of men at
work,and track-laying is progressing at the
rate of at least one mile perday. There was
alittle delay at one of the tunnels,but there
will be no further hindrance to very rapid er
work There will be abundance of business rel

Mr. Blaine by a gentleman who recently
ked with him in regard to his interview

atleinan from that conversation was that
lino was really contemplating going to

) line of his recent interview, but
it ho lmd not fully decided. Another
2nd of Mr. Blaine Bays that his attilo
aa regards tlie Presidency is this:

it may be called his hope, to bene

would not d( c'ine the nomination il
H3jority of the delegates should see fit to
ider it to him. One of the leading
aigbtout Republicans, speaking to-day
the elTect of Mr. Blaine's position as
rards the politics of that State, said:
If Mr. Blaine had taken this position
rlier it might have made an important
Terence with the Republicans in Vir?
lia. The Straigh touts had no recognin
in the North; the Administration was
linst them, Mahone was against them,
j Congressional Republican Committee
3 against them, and there nowhere was
y powerful personage in the North to
re them support. They were but a
udlul of men against thousands, and
Ihout money. LJnder these circuinnces
it is not surprising that they did
t organize. Still, I think that Mr.
line's position will take a good many
tes from Mahone, but not enough to deit
hiin. The Muhone iMinilulat?forCon.
isstnan at large, Wise, will undoubtedly
elected, but it will be a greatly redueecl
ijority from theMahone vote of last year,
e majority will probably not be more
in 5,000. If Blaine should go to Virlia
and make a strong speech against the
adjuster movement it possibly might
e Mahone 10,000 votes, but it would bo
cessary for the opposition to take more
tea than, that away from him to insure
i defeat.

s imnojjea many of the clerks, who from

zen thinks that if the idea of enlisted
:n were done away, so far as the clerical
>rk at the Chief Signal Office is concern,
the reason for complaint would be reived;
he therefore proposes, if possible,
have a law passed allowing theappoint:nt
of clerks on the civil list, in classes
e, two and three- Should this be done
i present force of enlisted mm would be
ufotless appointed. About 125 clerks in
would be thus employed.

The Course of the Comet.
Washington, October 2.?Prof. Edgar
Frisby,who is conducting the observations
of the comet from the Naval Observatory
in this city, says the impression of some
observers that the comet struck the sun in
its journey through the heavens is
incorrect. He Bays from the observations
made yesterday morning the nucleus
appeared to be from 15? to 20? in the
: direction of the tail and about three or four
secouds broad, and very bright. The tail
appeared about 15? long. Jt terminates
very abruptly, and is about 1 i? in cross section.
The outlines of the tail are sharpened
and well defined. It is observable be;
tween 4 and 5 a. >r. in the eastern sky.
Prof. Friaby gays' the comet was Dearest
the sun September 17. At that time it was
not more than 300,000 or 400,000 miles from
the sun's surface. It was then moving
from the sun. On the 19th of September
it was about 17,000,000 miles from the sun;
! on the 2lst it was about 20,000,000 miles,
, anil it is now about 00,000,000 miles distant
from the sua. The professor
, says its motion decreases as it gets further
away from the sun. "When observed yesterday
morning it w*hs moving iu a south|
westerly direction. Its position was aliout
lOh. 42m. right ascension and G? 27' south
[ declination. He says it is now
. about 110,000,000 miles from the earth.
Prof. Frisby produced several illustrations
' and calculations to prove that the comet
' lias not yet come in contact with the sun.
As shown by the figures above it is
traveling away from the aun as fast as possible.
He savs, however, that it went
i very close to the 6un. The professor says
when it was first observed Sept. 11, it
" was moving north of east, but it is now go

Unjust Attack on Folder.
Washixgxov, October 2.?A rumor telegraphed
here from New York a day or two
ago to the effect that Secretary Folger was
considering the feasibility of relieving the
money market by means of a large loan of
Government money, the payment of which
was to be secured by a deposit of United
States bouds, has been treated in certain
quarters as strictly- true, and has beeu
'made the basis of a. number of unjust at
; tacks upon the Secretary. The story has
been accepted by newspapers, which,
nnu t* uiuuicuuD Dyuef ?ciiccnun,
' would have seen that it originated in Wall
' street purely for speculative purposes.
That Judge folger ever thought of making
such a loan is pronounced most improbable
at the Treasury Department, where there
is no difference of opiuiou as to there :
being no authority in law for loaning out
Government money on any kind of securi,
ty. The report was put in circulation for a
twofold purpose: first, to jnflnenco the
money and help speculators in Wall street;
and second, to injure Secretary Folger

New York, October 2.?Mr. Blaine was
in New York recently and read in one of
the papers there a finely prepared description
of Gov. Tilden's new mausion. One |
thing that struck him particularly was the
way the dining-room was finished out. Me
immediately made up his mind that the (
dining-room of his own house should be '
fitted out like it. He accordingly telegraphed
his builder to meet him in <
New York. The two then visited Mr.
Tilden's house. The builder was'asked to
prenare an estimate of what it would cost to '
make the Blaine dining room like it. The !
builder made the necessary calculation?, ,
talked with Mr. Tiliten's contractor, ard j
then sat down and began figuring. Jn
two days he gave Mr. Blaine his i
, answer. "Well, how much will it cost?"
Mr. Blaine asked. "My figuring," replied i
the builder, "puts it at $32,000." ''I am supposed
to be a rich man," remarked Mr.
' Blaine in reply, "but I'll tell you candidly
' I can't stand such a dining room as ,
that. I like it very much, and while Gov.
1 Tilden can have such things, I'll have to
dismiss the thought. AVliy, my entire
house finished won't cost mo more than
$S0.000?$52,000 for a dining room! We
1 will have to give it up. Gov. TilJen is on
t topthistime.Bure." The builder returned,
, and Mr. Blaine's dining room will be fitted

Kinqwood, W. Va., October 2.?Tlio
politics of this county, except what is
found in the local papers, does not appear
to a very great extent upon the surface. In
fact it is the "dryest" campaign, perhaps,
ever witnessed in Preston county. The
cause of this extreme apathy may be credited,
in part, to the, fact that the
Republican ticket has comparatively
no opposition. The Democratic
and Greenback parties both placed
full tickets in the field, but their candidates
all declined, except Mr. Hughes, the candidate
of the Democracy for the Legislature,
who is a young mechanic anil a very
estimable gentleman, but unknown outside
of King wood, and the Greenback
candidate, whom nobody knows or cares
to know. The Republican county ticket is
composed of representative men, who have
had experience, and it will be elected by
large majorities.
xne uernocracy ftre not as harmonious
as would appear from outside talk. Tho
Hoge men?that is the "rank and file"?
who thought Hope honestly nominated, do
not relish the idea of seeing their favorite
forced.to tako all the "ritnut" of the campaign
and then allow JelFerson county to
dictate the harmony candidate, and there
are some who refuse to support Mr. Wilson,
a member of the County Executive
Committee?a leading Democrat, and one
of the influential and wealthy men of the
county, being among the number.
On the other hand, the Itepublicans are
thoroughly united and have hopes of electing
Mr. Mason. The county is thoroughly
organized, and will poll a much larger Republican
vote than was ever cast before in
an "off year." He will get over 1,000 majority
in this county.
Railroad matters are very quiet just now

The company advertised for bids in July,
but they were very few, and bo fir above
the estimates of construction that none
were accepted, and no effort has aiuce been
made to push the enterprise through.
A meeting of the directory, we
understand, will be held' in a
few days to consider what shall
be done, and the people wait
with interest the result of their deliberation.
In the meantime, the engineers
are pushing the survey of the Iron Valley
roau, which passes through Valley and
Lyon Districts, in this county. . The prospects
are bright for the construction and
completion of this road at an early day.

Hay, largest ever harvested in the county;
