Be says that, prior to thepretended marriage, he gave her the sum of SCOO, for which he holds her receipt, that sum being, as she well under stood. all that she was to receive from him on ticcount of tbclr peculiar relations. Ho bos since then refused to giro her anything or to visit her,because, among other things, she addressed him under a name which he claims Is not hers, ond ulsu because she threatened to - shoot him. He has proposed to her to take their child, and put. It ip the bands of persons who will rear It well. That offer, which ho still makes, he says she declined.

They were ar rested by the West Twelfth street police yester day. IT. F. Steloleln, a young man who has been collecting money from pour families la the southern part of the city, representing himself as a Christum Brother, was Yesterday, on com plaint of the Rev. P. M. Flanigan, corner of I'ifty-Qft n street and Wentworth aveuue, charged with obtaining money by false pretenses. About Qfty pounds of-salt white flab. In a half-barrel, await an owner at tbe West Madison direct fiiation. Tbe stuff was recovered by Officer Murphy from two thieves who were turning it Iron tbe north to tbe west side ol the river over tbe new Northwestern Railroad bridge, and who ran off when they saw tbe offi cer approaching them. An unfortunate from Scranton, Pa., givlnglhe name ot Llxzle Bergen gave herself up at the Armory )«*terdar. She says she was seduced away from borne by a man named Andrew btveenuy, who abandoned her at tbe English House in tula city. Shu was next Induced to enter Sophia. Peterson’s rauebe, on Pacific a venue, where she bos lived In squalor and degra dation until she became disgusted with life. Tuesday evening at 7 o’clock, a vouug man named A. D. McLean, living at No. huff West Adams street, was held up and robbed by two men at the corner of Lafiln and Van Buren streets of a silver watch, gold chain, and locket, uud a Docketbook containing about |4ff In cash. W hen tne v let go ol him and ran, McLean fired one ihot at them, and, owing to alt short-sighted ness, was unable to pursue them farther. He is able to give only poor descriptions of bis as sailants. At noon yesterday It was reported to tbe Bin man Street station by Andrew Moeoeb, of No. Blue Island avenue, that while clot-lug up tbe saloon of GeorgebholLalNo. I*4Thirteenth place, where he was employed as bartender, ala late hour Tuesday night, ho was assaulted by a aaloon-loafer named William Peters, whom be tried to elect, and was cut deeply on the left temple and across the nose and the face. Peters la well known, and his capture Is merely a ques tion of time. At 10:1.1 last night, while Mr. Caranagh, of No. ISO West Van Bttrcn street, while going west on Adams street was met In front of No. 107 br a tall man, who. os soon a* he had passed, turned and followed him. Then, as Mr. Caranagh came up to another man, who proved to be a pal, the tall man seized him Horn behind and choked him, and the two re lieved him of a gold watch. He drew his re volver to protect himself, but the robber re- lieved him of that also. The transaction was seen by a citizen, but singularly enough neither he nor Caranagh ate able to give any gooo de scription of tbn highwaymen. Detective John O’Connor lost evening arrest ed, at Ibe corner of Desolalncs and Randolph streets, a crooked character named Walter Fan ning, who has not been seen about town for nearly two rears, having skipped out just after a dcspera'le robbery at Amos Seeley’s house, bard by the home of the Fanning family. It was always thought that Walter bad a band In the robbery. He I* aiso wanted for tbe larccnv of some shawls from J. V. Fsrwcll A Co., nod unou several other charges. When arrested he offered to give O’Connor SOOO cash to let him go. and when at the corner of Wash ington and union streets he threw a handful of cayenne pepper In the olilcer’a face, and made a desperate endeavor to escape. At about 5 o’clock last evening James Ilcnrv, 13 year* of age, living at No. 204 Van ilurcn street, stopped a few moments In front of No. Uls Blue Island avenue, to watch some bo vs who were hard at play to the neighborhood. 'A fiend named Bernard Ilocamn, who has figured In tbe police courts before, enmo out of a saloon, crazed with liquor, and, without any provocation, grasped a skate from one ot the boys at play, and dealt the little Henry boy a frightful blow over tbu head, rut- ting a deep gash clear to thu skull. Dr. Hobbs, who attended the Kltlo fellow, say* the wound Is a very dangerous one, but he has hopes of a recovery unless tne concussion prove* more serious than Is expected. Hocamo was arrested shortly after the assault by Ofilccr Thomas Maher, and was locked up at the Darrtsou titreet Station. WASTTMtmDFn? Tbe West Twelfth street police ore Investigat ing what onoears to have been a deliberate mur* dcr, but thus far hare scarcely n single clow or n single particle of information regarding It. In fact, they did not bear of it until late \cstcrday afternoon, amt up* to midnight all that they bad ascertained were the Dare facta. Thomas tyllev, 85 years of ace, a laborer on the Pittsburg tfc Fort Wavne Hall* road, while riding home Tuesday evening on a frcient-car was thrown off deliberately by some man or men unknown. He was severely In* jured internally, and bod both legs badly crashed. The crowd that gathered about him saw that ho was conveyed to the County Hospital, and there It was necessary to amputate both lees. He lingered In great ogonv until 3 o’clock yesterday morn* Ing, when death ensued. Deceased was a single man, and boarded with Hugh McDoud, ot No. 12) Qurlcy street. Thus far not d single trace of the men who threw him off has been found by the police. COUNTY INSTITUTIONS. TUB NEW DEAL. Yesterday wot change-day Id such of the county . Institutions where the wisdom ot the County Board had said there should be chances mode,—notably in the County Agent's office and the County Hospital. At the former place the chances were few, end what they were bad been agreed on the evening before at the Agent’s residence. Several Commissioners and the em ployes of the office called on Cant. McGrath to give him a surprise, and, taking advantage of the occasion, the changes were agreed upon, but wiil not be mode public until this morning. They will consist, however, ot the discharge of three visitors and the appointment ot throe In their places. The presents they brought with them consisted of a large frame containing the photographs of Mr. McGrath, and all bis assistants, a silver lea set (o Mrs. McGrath, and a gold cross to Nicholas Eck bardt, Assistant Countr Agent, all the gift of the employes. The usual presentatlou speeches were made, the loner man was nourished, and ft was not until 3 o’clock In the morning that the company dispersed. It Is scarcely necessary to add that the Couotv Agent’s office was nut open yesterday, and that the Commissioners and employes were late making their calls. AT TUB COUNT? HOSPITAL the changes had been also agreed upon the night before, and they were numerous, hut not an general as it will be found oecesisrv to make them. Warden Mills really took charge Tues day, and brought with him several of his assist* ants, who were anything but cordially or warm ly received. The old employes were angry, and Informed him,—that is, the helpers, laundry* girls, etc.,—upon learning tbst their chiefs were to be superseded jesterdav, that they, too, would leave, and for a time they banded to gether and actually ibreateoedtodfspossess him. Ue kept cool, however, and tola them they could leave, aud they did leave, aod the result of It was the whole Institution was worse dis organized than aver, and It was with considera ble difficulty that the food for tbolnmatescould bo prepared during the day. Warden Mc- Laughlin did not leave until la the afternoon, and his conduct was not a great deal better than’ that of his subordinates, though ho did not actually display much bad temper. Ills clerk, however, was very sulkv, and up to a late hour yesterday afternouu hung around defiantly. but gradually relenting. He will pack up ami get out to-day. As soon aa Mr. Mills bad gotten charge he took a look through the institution, accom panied by Commissioner Spofford and some of tbe new appointees. The condition of affairs cannot bo expressed. Everything was Just as tiltbv os ft was possible to be, and one of the physicians sold that the patients iu his ward were really being killed with dirt, tbe ward not having been cleaned for a month. The dirt could be scraped up on some of the floors, the keys were missing, and the kitchen hod to be broken Into. Tbe linen room hod the opocar ancu of haring been recently rubbed. There was absolutely nothing left In It but dirt, and tbe result waa there was not wherewith to' change the beds. The store-room was also de- I plated, and oat of two cases ot eggs I Drought In tbe evening before there was 1 not enough left for a nearly meal fur one person. A barrel of vinegar bruugbt In a few days before was found empty, owing to someone leaving the splggot out, and they had to send out and purchase provisions for break fast. Id tact, the wbolu Institution had the appearance of having been gulled, for there was very little left except the superabundance of dirt, which covered tbe floors, the walls, the woodwork, aod ever)' available spot around the promises. Mr. Mills will set about matting un inventory of what Is loft os soon ss the dirt can be hauled away, aud ihen, perhaps,, bv referring to me recent requisitions for supplies, he may be able to approximate the actual amount of stuff missing. In the meantime, however, the county will substantially have to refurnish the limitation In some departments to save the pa* tlems Irom neglect and wuut. The appointees so lor. all of whom wereonduty yesterday, arc as follows: Matron, Mrs. O. .Johnson; cook, Mr. Keeler: latindrymau. F, A Franks; carpenter, W. 11. Uoamson; clerk, J. F. Donnelly; baker, Mr. Kendall; druggist, John R. Outen; ambulance driver, George Crowtber. Other changes were made In various departments, and others are yet to be made, notably amoug the uurscs, who are epokcu of— especially the females—aa being entirely unlit lor the places they hold, for reasons which it Is nut necessary to state. The appointments made are sold to be flrei-vlois throughout, aud Mr. Mills says that, with tbulrassUtauce, he expeeta to be able to bring order out of chaos lu a few weeks, aud to have the Hospital a credit rather thau a disgrace to the county. AT TUB INSANE-ASYLUM AND POOR-UOUSI there were no changes worthy of note, there being no change in tbe management. The only changes likely to be made are lu tbe office of Assistant i'liysiclau, and the abolishing ul the office of Assistant Warden, aud creating Instead the office of Storekeeper. These changes, if wade at all, will not be wade fur some weeks. A liIVKIvY COlirSK. v TUB O’SUBAS PXMUVXP OJT A FUNERAL. . The first requisite to a properly-conducted funeral Is to have tbe corpse on baud, and to be sure It Is tbe right one. For Jack pf Iho latter precaution, a certain funeral whfsh was to bare come off to-day at No. 231 Maxwell, street has been postponed Indefinitely, much to tbe satis faction of the friends and relatives, and to tba infinite chaffing ol tbe “ corpse,” by bla boon companions, for falling to play out his part In tba lugubrious drama. Some time yesterday morning one Jehu O’Shea called upon Undertaker Ellon and told bim he bod received a postal-card from Ibe authorities of tbe Cook County Hospital staling that bla brother, Michael O’Shea, Lad died dur ing tbe night of dropsy, and asking for Instruc tions as to what saould be done regarding bis burial. Mr. O’Shea—tbe very much alive but sorrow-stricken one—requested Mr. Elton to send over to the Uosolta). get the body, prepare It for the grave, and bring It over to the '■I'HK JJUI'JA'JO family residence. This was all done, decently and In order, and In the meantime the O’Sheas rondo all the usual preparation* for a funeral, and. In lids ease, for the waKe which was lo premie It and dvo It the proper eclat. The shroud was ordered, Inc the burial permit and phrslclnns certificate were obtained, the friends were called In, pipes were lighted, and certain stoups of liquor found their wav down caster throats with the usual accom panying smocking of lie* and verbal praise* of thetravture.” Everythin* was ready but the form of the beloved departed. In the course of the afternoon that came,—or what was supposed to bo the mortal remains thereof. Tcara there were, voice* choked with emotion, and—more lloatlons. The corpse, neatly shaven, (n n plain hut appropriate casket, and ‘‘laid on the cold, cold bier,” was mysteri ously exposed to view by removing the cotlln plate. The mourners gathered around, expect ing to sec the dead form of him whom they had known In life. When the last screw wiis re moved and the lid taken oft the fond illusion was dispelled. ‘‘llowly .Moses,” yelled one of the sorrowing ones in tones of mingled wrath and disgust. “Howl? Motes, and do yes call that Michael O’Shea? Dlvll a bit uv Mike O'Shea In that slid.” The senti ments expressed by the remaining mourners were wonderfully similar. The wako whs at a stop. The corpse was taken back to the Hospi tal, tbo brother and some of his friends accom panying It, and then they “ wanted to know, you know, how Ibe this was.” The upshot of it all was that the other O'Shea, the dropsi cal Michael, was found In one of the upper wards, alive and with his clothes on, and very much astonished at the news he received,' and tbo subsequent chodngs to which he was ex posed. The queerest thing about it all was that none of the Hospital folks knew who tbo dead man lyas, If he wasn’t O’tihca, and the latter positively refused to be considered dean, or any thing like It, It might bo a good scheme for the Hospital authorities hereatter to label patients or brand them, so that when found dead they can be properly identified. POIiITICATj. tub or.EANinas or tub oat. Tbe political market yesterday ruled steady and unchanged. Candidates took a rest, oa did their friend*. There wasn’t even toy quiet work attempted. Mcmbcrs-clcct of the Legis lature who have been guests lu the city for sev eral day post went home to welcome the New Tear. Tbe head lights of tbe party wore prac- tleally extinguished. They didn’t prooose to engage In any undertaking that would conflict with their observance of the day. It came but once a year, and must be properly entertained. And It was, so far as they were able to dolt. 8o much for the candidates* Their other* selves had gone oat 'to sco “a party by tbo nsmo of Johnson,” and could furnish do encouragement to tb* seeker after facta or favors. The hotels appropriated ty politicians of oil degrees were marked for tne absence of that commodity. The sources of news were flat, stale, and unprofitable os tbo Sweet Singer of Michigan. The hangers-on, as the class who watch tho labors of principals from a distance ore called, were ro be seen at Intervals In search of somntutng they apparently could not find. Some of these let fall rumors os to tho aitua* tlon wblcn need confirmation. One of these was to tbe effect that LrccT.-aov. bqcsuk would prove to be tbe coming man. The news* gatherer Inquired what condition of affairs woald brlntr about this unexpected event. Tbe caucus would have to pass on Uglctby, Logan, and Farwell before the name of cither could bu presented to the Joint session. If neither of the prominent candidates found ■ufllclent favor to secure a majority, a compro mise candidate would of necessity be agreed upon. 44 flow do you arrive at this conclusion I” 44 Eaav enough. If neither Logan, Oglesby, nor Farwcll can fully control the caucus, mid cither I* nominated by a bare majority, there may be danger of abolt. To prevent this some one will bo run la who, Tf not acceptable, will at least not antagonize tbe party.” 44 Would Hot.

Informa tion as to bow this would be brought about was not vouchsafed. The . prophet was not clear himself. Appearance* indicate that . TUB “LOHBT” tbU year will be more numerous and varied than ever before. Logan, It Is said,- bos euiisted tbo services of men who are experts la the art of controlling voles, and will nave them on baud at the critical moment. Who furnishes the money to run this alleged lobby Is a secret un fathomable. A prominent politician was on tbe point of giving It away recently. He didn’t do It, tboueb. Reflection restrained bis lucllno lions, and no amount of persuasion could pre vail on him to alter bis decision.

Ills name may be sprung at an oppor tune moment, though, and If it Is, tbe fact that bo has been acceptable to tbe Democrats would moke him a dangerous rival. IN REGARD TO THE ORGANIZATION of tbe House, It Is generally believed that the Bpenkershfp lies between Mormon, tihaw, and James.

Parker Is a popu lar man, and It U said will go into life caucus with twenty votes. He, too, is said to be one of Logan’s earnest supimrters. The mills will resume grinding to-dsy, but there Is no telling wbat the day may develop. New combinations will doubtless be evolved, and arrangements big with promises for the future consummated.

Day. an ex-actor with the stage name of George Roacoe, was yesterday held by Justice Morrison In 13.000 bonds to ibe 8d lor the rob bery and assault Monday evening at Johnson's grocery, at the corner of You Boren and Aber deen streets, and in #3OO additional for carrying concealed weapons. The |>olice have compiled from various sources the following biography: R. O. Day, alius Koscoe, was arrested in 1878 on McVlckcr’a stage during the performance, where he was playing minor parts. He was ar rested by C. r. Bradley, then Chief ol Police, charged with being a Rebel spy. and was sent to Camp Douglas. He was next beard ol In New York In the employ of Harry Davies* detective agency,aud was himself arrested,and sfterwrads was driven out of New York by Chief Walling. He next was' beam from at Peoria. Hl, where bo got Into a scrape. His wife Is the woman who caused the jealousy between George and Mollle Trussed, vbieb cul minated In Slollle shooting George dead on Randolph street in IbOG. bhc married Koscoe one day later, aud bos been bring with him ever since. Dec. 3d Mr. Divan, livery-stable keeper at No. SCO North Clark street, bad bla horse and cutter stolen on tbe comer ol Wabosu avenue and Harmon street, he advertised, offering a liberal reward. Dost Monday be was approached by a man who offered to restore to him lor #Jd tho stolen rig. ana, upon tbe money being paid over, be look Divan to the next alley, aud them stood tho rig. Regarding tbe first statement In tbe above, Day states that be was sent to Camp Douglas ostensibly as a prisoner, but In reality os a spy to prevent Rebel prisoners from escaping. Tbe •.VULBUiVEs THUHSHAV. JANUARY IH7!). second statement is mostly false. The store alwint the scrape ntr Peoria was true. The story regarding his wifMs also true, but he does not seu what, that has to do with the nltslr, nr wiiv she should ho brought Into such a scranc. 'Tnb horse end cutter were recovered (11 a legitimate manner, through his business ah n private de tective. i And, notwithstanding the prisoner’s char acter is t htis shown up In a bad fight, he appears to bo the victim of n singular case of mistaken Identity. He itveuat No.ffM Van Hnren, directly across the street from the grocery. Ho traded there, and must have been seen by Johnson and wde many limes. ' Ho was In the store fifteen minutes before tho rnbborr. and a neighbor named Sullivan, residing at No. 331 Von Huron street, ran out upon hearing tho oulerv after the tohbcrv had taken plate, lie met Day, and knowing Idm to lie a detective, both of them questioned Mr. Johnson and wife and obtained n description of the robbers. Day was In the store again next morning, but In neither in atance was ha identified. When the obiter brought him to the grocery Mrs. Johnson was positive that he was-thc one who choked her, and she still sticks to it. lint Day In no man ner corresponds to the description she gave Mr. Sullivan that night.- However, the matter will doubtless be set tled to-dny. Day hrfs been associating consid erably with C. P. Sheridan, only two months out of the lowa State Penitentiary, and room ing at No. 147 West Harrison street, lie was arrested yesterday, and, should the Johnsons identify him as tiie other robber, the police wilt consider that they have prottv strong cases against both men. In eithenevent the case is singular. If Day committed the robbery his cheek In returmng'to the store and tokluc de scriptions of the robbers Is amazing, and, if he Is Innocent, Mrs. Johnson cod never again be lieve her eves. ' THE RAILROADS. NATIONAL RAILROAD BUREAU. To the Editor a I The Trlfrtme. Spkinoftbld, Dec. 31.—1 t Is admitted that the transportation question la assuming a sc noua complexion;' that the difficulties under which the railroads are struggling compel them to a course of action which precludes the Idea of fairness and the .'observance for any long period of pool arrangements or resolutions of conventions; that competition is fierce, ond agreements to control are almost useless; that the railroads are In a dilemma. If they charge high freight rates, business will leave them. If they charge low rates, they cannot meet interest or pay dividends. These admissions are all true, as the recent experience of railroads proves. Uut it is also said that the question of trans portation is beyond the province of a National Uurcau, and the reason seems to be because no Legislature can regulate the conditions of sup ply and demand In the commercial relations of the country. These assertions are by no means evident. If the evils complained of do really exist; if the system to which they belong is so vast and comprehensive as to be beyond the control of State iaws;if Congress, under the Constitution, has the oower to regulate commerce among the several States, then It follows, of course, that it is wltnfn the province of a National Bareau to take cognizance of these evils, and ii possible to apuly a remedy. The assertion that “no Legislature can regu late the conditions of supply and demand” is a most glaring mistake. This is the very object which Legislatures are continually regulating. Many years ago there was a demand lor the products of the West to supply the wants of the crowded population of the Hast, and the Legislature of New YorK authorized the con struction of the Erie Canal, and thereby regu lated the conditions of supply and demand. Tho Illinois & Michigan Canal was constructed under authority ot State law for the same pur pose and like eflccU The removal of obstructions in the navigation of . our rivers, the improvement of oor harbors, and tho construction ot Jetties at the | mouth of the Mississippi bribe General Govern- ; ment are ail undertaken for tne wry purpose of | regulating the conditions ot supply and demand in the commercial relations of the country and the world. The Com laws of England and the tariff system of ourofrn country have the same oDject In view. The circulation of gold and sil ver in the channels of commerce depends upon the lawn which are passed for the regulation of trade. The Government may place on embargo upon our products,! or cstaollsh a commercial quarantine, or open' our ports unreservedly to the commerce of the world. In fact, the history of any commercial nation consists principally of the operation of laws which were passed for the *vcry purpose, of regulating the conditions Of supply snd demand. it (i, therefore, strictly within the province ot law and of a National Bureau to regulate the railroad system of?tho country in such a way that the demands -sod wants of the various sections of our widespread country shall be supplied in the most expeditious and economical manner* It is not contended that the railroad system should be antagonized or restricted, but, on the contrary, that.it should bo developed'and made to produce, for the benefit of all classes concerned, all the ad vantages of which it is capable. It is a difficult problem to solve. It will require untiring exer tions, nice discrimination, sound Judgment, ex-, tensive information, inflexible vigor, and incor ruptible integrity. The details of the Bureau will necessarily bo intricate and voluminous, but a few general principles may go far towards solving the diffi culty, While tne Bureau should possess para mount authority, It should be auxiliary only, □ot antagonistic, to ! the railroad system. Its object should be to foster and extend, while at the same time It should protect the Interests of the people. While on the one hand it should lircserve the rights of the stockholder and bond mldcr os far as possible. It should, on the other, prevent extortion and oppression. The produc tions of tho soil and articles of manulocturo should bo earned a the greatest distance at the lowcat rates consistent with the interests of the owners of tho rood, as modified by tno circumstances of the country. Corporations that derive their existence from the Legislature ought nut to bu allowed to absorb an undue proportion of the capital of tho country. It tho general business of the laud violds only U per cent ou the capital invested, railroads ought to bo restricted to near tho same amount; because whatever they gaiu more than their duo propor tion is the loss of tno people, from whom they obtain their charters. It Is true that they may nut have paid a 0 per cent dividend for past years, but this may have been caused by ex travagsuco hi construction of roods, tbe hlgh salaries of officers, and mismanagement of funds,—all ot which should bo placed under tbo supervision of the National Bureau as well as freights and charges. In a few years we may discover our mistake in having grunted monop olies, whereby Vanderbilt, or Bcott, or Gar rett, or tbo corporations they represent, have accumulated hundreds of millions of dollars, to tbe injury of the masses of tho people. Wo ought to adhere totbe principle that if we grant exclusive priv ileges to a corporatlon.we should exercise the right of Imposing conditions in consideration of tho privilege. If we have not douo so hereto fore, we should do so hereafter, and limit the salaries of officers so as to correspond with sal aries in other departments of business, and also the dividends of stocklipiders and interest on bonds, so os to correspond with the average in come in other kiuda ol business, and check the reckless expenditure of money which has char acterized uo many ot our road*. Wuen the peo ple port with their rights to those cliarlered monopolies they should impose limilatlous ior , their own safety, and secure, if possible, a fair j division of the profits for themselves. 1 am aware that this is a delicate subject and may require careful management. But if our law declares that our Governor ond oilier Btate officers shall receive fixed salaries, why should not a railroad charter do the same thing! If the Governor Is allowed only 90.000 per annum, why should a railroad President bu allowed ldu.oool If the Attorney-General receives only (3,600 per annum, why should a railroad attorney receive (15,0001 These salaries aru all derived from chatters ; political or otherwise; they are all paid by tho people directly or Indirectly; they are all conferred in considera tion of exclusive honor* or privileges, and they should ail bo controlled by the power that grants them. fio with the disposition of lauds granted by the Government and tho disbursement of money ,iu the construction of the roads. Tho grants should be liberal as uu inducement for capitalists to combine their- capital with tbe grant, but tho Government should have a specially-appointed agent—a national bureau— to see that ihcir grants are nut recklessly squan dered, and to impose a check upon extravagant railroad officials. Who can say that such a check would not have prevented tbe collapse of tho Northern Pacific Uallruodi And II other Pacific Hoads arc to be constructed with other extensive appropriations and grants, why should nut tho Government, by a national bureau, superintend tbe coustructiou and tho disposi tion of tho grants in such a wanner as to pro tect the tights and interests of oil tho parties concerned I Usd such a bureau existed, and properly discharged its duties by careful super vision, multitudes of honest settlers in the Lies Mulucs Valley would not have been deprived ot their homesteads or bseu compelled to pay twice for their lands. Jauur Jxxxs. TUB KORTUPfIIK I‘ACIPIC. m. AiiJ Ptonur-P/ttt, Vtc. iUJ. All Questioosor speculations os to who was the successful bidder for the construction of the Northern I’sdfic extension arc settled by a dis patch from the Northern Pacific Uailroad office In New York to the announcing that the contract for building the first 100 miles was yesterday awarded bv the Directors to Ste- phen C. Walker, of Peeksriltc, N. Y.; Herman Clark, o( East Orange. N. J.; James Bellows, of Rochester. N. Y.; and Robert J. Campbell, of Hath. N. Y.,—the work to be comDlclcd and-tho mad ready for operation by March 1 next. Mr. George A. Brackett. who won one of the bidders, supplements this announcement with some intetesting Information to our Min neapolis reporter as to too hid Itself,—which Is estimated to amount to about 97,100 per mile,— but this Is a mero approximate estimate, no aurvor of the line having yet been had, except of a section of about iwcntv-llvo miles. Mr. Walker, who mode the bln, scorns to have foun 1 ample backing on fils bond. It is a very sig nificant bill. inOO miles ol the Northern Pa cific shall be built for 97,100 per mile, it will bo unquestionably ttic cheapest piece of road of like length—considering Us geographical situa tion and topography, and Its distance,lrora any base of supplies—ever built In this or any other country* Farlev’s feat In building the Breckin ridge cut-off over the dead level of the Ued River Valiev for about 90,000 a mile, was consid ered a marvel of cheap construction, but If Stephen C. Walker completes the Job ho has undertaken, several hundred miles farther west, over a country which Is estimated to offer 10,000 square yards of excavation per mile, ho will beat Farley bv several lengths. Ho mar, and probably will, complete his contract, but ho will certainly make no money out of It. It should be under stood, however, as a partial explanation of his low bid, that the Northern Pacific Railroad Company have agreed to transport men. materi als, and supplies of all kinds on their road free of cost to the contractor, so that this fact com pensates to a considerable extent for the dis tance of the scene of operations from the points of supply* Moreover, it is a cash bid, and no discount for depredated bonds enters into the calculation. SOUTHEASTERN RAILWAY. /fpeelat Dl*pa!ch to The Tribune. Nashville, Toon., dan.

The union thus effected will have a tendency to harmonize corf* 1 dieting Interests, and render open hostilities out of the question—at least so loug os the tariff Is llycd up to aod remains iu force. POISONED SUGARS. To the F.iUtoe nf The Tribune. Lake Forest, 111., Dee. 01.—We propose to day to discuss the merits aod demerits of differ ent kinds of sugars. But there arc some obsta cles In our path. While we hayo some general knowledge of the chemicals used, we need a more definite Idea how and In wbpt way they are applied. The refiners ire very obstinate, and refuse to enlighten us on tho subject. Con trary to tbo general order of tblnga la the pres ent Ogd of the world,* they prefer to keep us In Ignorance on a subject of vital Importance to the people. Tho almost universal cry Is Light, light; give ns more light; but the sugar-refiners choose darkness. Hence we are compelled, In the main, to seek for knowledge from other sources. The employes, standing In fear of tho giant power of the Sugar Ring, dare not dis close their secrets. One of them, however, did write mo as follows: “You are undoubtedly on the right track, and, If you can get the Inside of onr sugar-refineries, will find yoor theories of ; adulteration fully confirmed. 1 hod to copy the Inventory of a refinery lately, and among tho Items was this one: * Ten lull carboys of muri atic acid, and six empty ones.* There was also mentioned among some memoranda in regard to manufacture, 'muriate of tin,' ‘sulphuric acid, and sulphurous acid,’ aod others which 1 have forgotten.” 1 addressed a letter of Inquiry to another em ploye. In bis answer ho says: ”1 have a sus picion—perhaps something more—that all the refiners use deleterious substances In tbo proc ess of refining, bat are all very reticent about talking.” During the last few weeks there has been con siderable sold In the Eastern papers about the adulteration with glucose, and poisoning with the muriate of tin, but nothing has been said about the other chemicals equally objectionable and equally destructive of health. Other polsooa hare been used freely for more than twenty years before muriate of tin was thought of. All this time dyspepsia, diabetes, and heart-disease have been Increasing at a fear, ful rate, and poisoned sirups and sugars have contributed towards these forms of Invalidism more than anything else. Do they thus keep sllouce because the tin and glucose cannot easily be concealed from the skill of the chemist, while the acetate of lead and other chemicals cant The ostrich Imagines that by biding Its head In the sand It can screen Itself from all danger. Do tbov. In like manner, by al ienee on this sublcct, think they are going to save the consumers of poisoned sugar from alt Injury! Do they thing that nothing else can act as a slow poison unless it can he mode manifest by analysis! The following remarks from the New York Star aro as applicable to tbo acetate of lead as they aro to the muriate of tin: ••But the refiner and his employed chemist will tell us that muriate of tin is only uted os a bleacher, and that, if there la a proper cleaning up after the refining process Is completed, all Injurious matters will be removed. This is meant for a blind, but it does not help their cose In the least. It Is true that the residuum may he entirely removed, aod not a trace be dis coverable of this bleacher-adulterant, but nev ertheless the muriate of tin is there. *How can you prove UP they say. Well, you spotless specimens of chemical luoocency, in this'way: Is nut the muriate of tin a aaltl Is it not solu ble! And docs not Its solubility enable you to use It as s bleacher and mordant! And, If this is admitted, please tell us bow you retain the bleaching power of the chlorine, and hold tho color given to toe sugar during tho process of refining, If the muriate of tin Is entirely re moved when >ou clean upl And, lastly, we say that were you to attempt Its precipitation you would have to do your work over again In order to manufacture the beautiful ‘B,’ *C,’ and 0 extra.’ ” Is tbo silence of these men la relation to the acetate of lead and other chemicals to be as cribed to tbo fact that thuy wish to retain tbolr use, while they think that tin and glucose ought to be abandoned! Mv experience and ob servation convince me that they aro more objec tionable than glucose. Refiners and groctA make two classifications of sugars—the soft and the hard. Tuc solt aro tho colfco, both white and brown, and all moist sugars. Most of the granulated aro also soft, as they aro made from the Colfco “A” by being baked. Formerly they were made from the hard sugars, hut probably not a barrel of genu ine granulated bard sugar can now be found in Chicago, it is nearly all, if not all, a counter feit. Toe bard sugars are the loaf, cut, and crushed. What chemicals wcr« used lo clarifying the •oil susar* beloro the advent of tin U more thau the writer cau say. Probably the bi sulphate ol luoe «u oiia of tbetn. Borne chemists say that tbU U harmless. Chemistry, however, cannot determloo that question. Ex* penence alone cau solve It. Probably other chemicals, like almo or the sulphate of sloe, were and stlli are used by those who do Dot use llu. At all events, the collce-sugsrs are, aud have bceu lor mure thao tweuty years, ooe of the most fruitful sources of dyspepsia. There cau be uu mistake about their pvrulcious character, whether the chemist cau bad any Eolaon In them or not. Then* may not be suf dent (xrifton In them to produce It In a month or a year. That depend* upon the strength nf the alimentary organ*. The amount of chem ical In any alimentary substance which would produce dyspepsia In one person In a very short time would require a much longer period to hare the same effect on another. The coffee-sugars being a al.#w poison, neither tho dyspeptic nor hi* medical attendant gen erally has any suspicion of the principal cause of bis invalidism. Its elTccts are more especially manifest in those who have already become dya pentics. Boch persons cannot use this sugar w ithout aggravating their symptoms. It Is not pretended that ttda Is the only cause of dyspep sia, or of its aggravation, but one of the prin cipal ones. Not long since 1 saw a person suf fering with unremlttcd pains lu his stomach. The suggestion being made to him tint coffee sugar might bo a source of his sufferings, bo abandoned it, and found great relief. Alter that ho suffered more or less, but not so severely. It is evident from the testimony In the East ern papers that the muriate of tin lias of late been used freely by some of tbu refiners in clar ifying the soft sugars. This would sufficiently account for Ha injurious effects. Dut previous to the advent of tin In our refineries chemicals were used in this class of sugars, and the sirups drained from them, that made the consumers dyspeptics by the thousands. By more than a quarter of a century of ‘observation tbe writer has become perfectly satisfied of their pernicious effects. Another serious objection to tbe coffee-sugars is tbattbeir saccharinepropcrtlesare to agreater or less extent destrbyed bv the process of refin ing. In some of them at Icsst oni-thlrd of their sweetness has been removed, making them the dearest sugars any ono can purchase, even It not adulterated with glucose. If adulterated with that article their value (a diminished attll more. Let us now consider the hard sugars. For merly they were refined with blood and bone-dust, without chemicals. Such were perlectly whole some. Tim tender infant and the greatest in valid could use them with perfect impunity. About thirty years ago nn English chemist made tbe discovery that sugar might be refined with the acetate of lead much easier and with far less expense than by tho old process. The lead can be neutralized to such nn extent that It can not bo detected by analysts. Therefore somo say that sugar refined with that agent is harm less. Whether It can bo removed so as not to Injure the consumers is more than tho writer caa say. Of ono thing lie is certain: it baa not generally been done. It effect is not tho same as the coffee-sugars, causing irritation and pain la tbu stomach. It causes Irritatlun of the bowels, producing bleeding piles. Tho refiners, one alter another, adopted tho use of load. When n part of them had done so. the rest were compelled to follow suit or quit tho business. If they continued the old process they could not compete with those working under the new, without being driven into bankruptcy. Notwithstanding all we have said against the bard sugars, wo have a favorable word to say concerning them in contrast with the soft. Since the commencement of tho discu«alon of adulteration tho refiners have probably re nounced glucose. They have also probably made a greater effort to neutralize tbe lead,, so that lu these respects the bard sugars are purer than they have been for a long time. 1 do not believe there has been as mucii Improvement In tbe soft sugars. Therefore I consider the bard sugars much safer than tbe others. If such Is tho case, it would bo verv desirable that tho re finers should give up the practice of making their so-called granulated out of Coffee "A,” and give to tbe public a genuine granulated bard sugar. borne will probably ask the question whether it Is possible to obtain pure New Orleans ougars. In reply X would say that a portion of this class arc composed of a mixture of light brown coffee and plantation sugars. Such are bat lltt'c, If any, better than the coffee that comes from the refinery. Furthermore, the planters hare not been slow In learning the wars of the ro> Oners Id Improving the color of their products. Where this Is the case, their sugars will also bo tainted with chemicals. They are probably freo from tho'sln of adulterlng with glucose. There are, however, some pure plantation sugars. From what 1 have been able to learn, I think that Mr. Walker’s Louisiana sugar Is as pure as aov that cau be found In Chicago. This subject will be lurther considered next week. L. JlossiTEiu IS THE NEW EXPERIMENT OF THE MUTUAL LIFE LEGAL? From Iht Chronicle, Ntia York, The following communication from the lion. John T. Clark, at wnoso Instance the opinion of Prof. Gray, of Harvard, touching the legality of the recent action of the Mutua) Ljfe ffq# ob tained, wlllbo resdwltb interest: Opjtici op Clark, Atuiis & Clark, Boston, Dec. 17, 1878.— 'The I'd>(or of the Vhrotitcle— Dbar 8m: I am to receipt of your valued favor of yesterday’s date, making Inquiries relative to certato professional opinions touching the Hie* crallty of tlio recent action of the Mutual Llfe- Insurance Company, and asking at whose In stance they wore obtained. In reply, I have to say that, as far as 1 am aware, no separate optn lons have been written by the officials to whom you refer; but the opinion prepared for me some time ago by Prof. Gray, of Harvard (law firm of Hopes, Gray A Lotiogr, of this city), was recently submitted at ray Instance to the Hon. Willard Sayles, Attorney-General of Rhode Island;' the lion. Luclllus A. Emery, Attorney- General of Maine; and the Hon. Mosou W, Tanpan, Attorney-General of New Hampshire, for examination by them. Each concurred nu reservcdly In Prof. Gray’s views—namely, that in the eye of the law the policies now being is sued by tbe Mutual Life are fraudulent oa re gards the old members, and consequently void. I have only to add, !u reply to your second Inquiry, that these opinions have been obtained at mv own instance, for the benefit of myself and a number of friends who bold largo policies in the Company, and that our object in obtain ing and publishing them was to luduco the Trustees to voluntarily reconsider their action, and thereby render unnecessary tbe perhaps disastrous litigation that is otherwise likely to occur. We hoped, and I think with reason, that such an array of distinguished legal testimony (every Attorney-General In New England con curs lu Prof. Gray’s opinion) to the Illegality of the proceedings complained of would creato such a healthy public opinion regarding the powers of Trustees and their necessary limita tions when vast and Intricate interests are being dealt with, that the eminent aud highly-respect ed business men who control ilsfi fortunes of tbe Mutual Life-Insurance Company would bo Impelled to and supported lu an honorable re treat from tbe unjust aud untenable position that bos been, as wo have hoped, unwittingly assumed. tjbould wo be disappointed in our expecta tions (this I am not prepared to admit), the pro fessional investigation which the subject has undergone will to of service in the legal pro ceedings that will no doubt ensue.
