FRIDAY.h'.pi kmukk 25. 1hh.
Chinalias lately executed nix rioters^for the last hutch of assaults upon^foreigners. This is six more than the^I'liited Slates lias jniiiislii-d for mob^^bing t'hinamen. In some things^China isn't gj backward as her more^civilized contemporaries.
Yesterday,Nebraska republicans^commended Ilarriton for the policy of^his administration in the treatment of^American pork, and then tluv went^wild over the mention of the name of^l!!ui!ie. 'IMie ti uiniiiiiry chuiriu in of^the convention suilei the rhetorical^seas in great shape with the Itlaine^craft in low. Said he, ' the next presi^^dent of the 1'iiitiil States will be the^gallant captain of the ihip of state,^the i^kill)ill navigator, the fearless^leader, the bright, brilliant, matchless^Blaine.^ This little reference was evi^^dently a put-up job, lor, as soon as the^words werrt uttered, u portrait of^Illume dtopped in t-i^lit; the effect was^magical, and the delegates took to^cheering. If lusty shouts on a conven^^tion floor could elect a num. Illiiine^would, have beeu president of the^Vnited States when some of the peo^^ple who will be voters in IViJ wore^knickerbockers.
O'Doiiovaullossa would like to go^back to old Ireland fir a few weeks,^but lor pcrMUtal le isons he fears it^Isn't feast He publishes some corres^^pondence wllb the state department^relative to a passport guaranteeing^bun lreedom from arnst in Ireland,^which he desireil and which was refused^him. Mr. limine'.- assistants offered him^h plain, everyday passport, with the in^^formation that they couldn't give him^any other sort if they wanted to.^Kobsu wrote back to Mr. I Maine that^ho understood a tn-uty was in existence^between the Tinted States and (ireat^llritain which stipulates that an Ameri^^can citizen could nut b' hold m I; mil^Jtrltaiu for any political words or acts^ot his in this country. Assistant Sec^^retary of State Wharton replied that^there was no such treaty, and Mr.^Itossa says if there isn't there ought to^Le one at id that without delay, liossa's^career has not been that of u coward,^but under the circumstances he will^liud it much to his advantage to stay^^ here he is and yank the lion's tail^from a safe distance. He would no^doubt willingly put ut^ with the dis^^comforts ot a British jail if by so doing^be could precipitate any tiouble be^tween the two countries, but no such^opportunity presents itself itnd Mr.^J'daino is not anxious to lind him one.
WHAT7 Hi AlLIANCt I'KOPOStS.
\\oril has gene out from the head^quarters of the runners' alliance at^Washington that I Ik- demands w hich^the alliance proposes lo make upon the^next congress will not be so radical^and revolutionary in their nature as^lias popular,) been supposed. Th^alliance leaders hare changed not their^views but Mini ly their plans. '1 hey^deem it good policy to nudity their^demands, or at least to give them the^appearand of having been iiudttiul.
Thesiib-treusuiy bill which was^introduced in the last congress will not^reappear, but in its stead another lull^embodying what is known as the laud-^loan scheme will be presented. I'nder^this bill ^any citi/cn who owns and re-^bides upon any tract of land containing^not less than 10 or MM than :rju^acres, and who has at least one-half ol^that tract in actual cultivation, shall^be entitled to apply for and to receive^from the treasury of the I tilled States^a loan not to exceed one-half the as^^sessed value of the hind and the im^^provements on it.^ The loans are to^be for not less than live nor more than^ten yenrs, and the bmrower is to pay^interest at the rate ol L''j per cent.
Thealllanca also proposet to in-^introduce measures diniandirg the^tree coinage id mIvu an i ^v.ru-^niental control id railroads and tele-^graphs, feat the land-loan scheme will^be the duel object aimed at and upon^it will center li e bulk ot d.scus-ioii.^Tin alliance claims lo have lour senu^tors and lill)-hve representatives in^the next house, enough lo make quite^a lively little I ght if they know how to^go iibout it.
Theobjections to the laud-loan pro^^ject, as the alliance now disues it to be^culled, have beeu staled tune and again^and haw never been satisfactorily an^^swered, such legislation would con^^vert the I nitiU S'aics government^into it pawnshop or mortgage otlice lor^the beneiit o! one particular class to^the exclusion of all other e u-scs. On^what grounds of equity Mflssjt) la other^lines of business should be it ^crimi^^nated against is not clear even lo the^supporters ot the order themselves.^Ti.ey proceed on the tin ory lliat the^laimer has beeu oppressed, and that^now it is his turn to get even. It do^-s^not require any special training in^logic lo discover the error in that reas^^oning and to perceive the injustice.
whichthe granting of special privi^^leges to the farmer* wot'' Involve^The Ocla platform demands that ^our^national legislation shall be so framed^in the futurj at not to build up one in^^dustry at the expense of another.^^The alliance has only to stick to that^wise and just declaration to see the^inconsistency of its land-loan policy.
AMAN NAMED LENOX.^Who is Joseph M. Lenox y On his^authority the Chicago Tribune opens^the mines of the Anaconda company,^tires the smelters in this city and ends^the dispute over freight rates on the^line of the Montana l'nion railroad.^This Mr. Joseph M. Lenox is an^^nounced by the Tribune to be one of^Die superintendents of the Anaconda^mine. If that is true, Mr. Lmox is^traveling in^^i^j.^there is no man of^that name on the pay roll of the Ana^^conda company; indeod. since the death^of the lamented Michael Carroll, no^man has held the rank of superintend^^ent of the Anacond i mines.
Thismythical man Lenox says that^the mines of the Anaconda company^were shut down because the Montana^In ion railroad company ^wanted to^carry nil the prolits,^ and this is true^enough. In his capacity of alleged^superintendent, this same Lenox says^that, at n conference held hist Satur^^day, mutters in difference. be^^tween the railroad company and^the Anaconda owners were all ad^^justed. We tri.sl this is true, but we^shall have to know more about Lenox^before we accept his statements.
Mlsorts of rumors are alloat regard^^ing the propnyed resumption of busi-^ni ss in this city and at the mines in^liutte. The Sta\i^ai:i^ hopes that^there is ground for these rumors, be^^came (hey give a hopeful view to the^sit nation. The latest story coming^from Chicago and St. l'aul is that Mr.^Daly is two days advanced on his jour^^ney lrom New York to Anaoomla and^that his arrival means resumption.^That is a p'easant prospect the only^trouble wilh it is that not longer ago^than -1 o'clock yesterday afternoon^Mr. lUly was quietly attending to per^^sonal matters it business in thu city of^Philadelphia.

CLOMOUP.
Theappropriation of .-M'i.Iiki.uh huv^ing beeu exhausted, business at the ecu^mis bureau is at a standstill, and the^special agents engaged In making in^quirles under Superintendent Hurler's^orders have been ordered to send in^their work whether finished or not and^shut up shop.
Thecensus of IS'.M has b.'en mis^^managed from hrst to last, it has spent^au enormous sum of money without^value received or niiylhinir like it, it^has given sutisfnetion to uulicdy under^the sun except th* gentlemen who^have had the spending of the l*ti,4i^l,-^ihm. It has booii proposed to ask con^^gress for a couple of millions MM^w ith w hich to liuisli the work now in^hand, but it is more th in questionable^whether it is worth linishing.
Theoriginal appropriation was am^pie had the census been conducted on^u strictly busiiiiss basis, but they wen^high-livers, thine republ cans in Wash^^ington last winter, and Superintendent^Hurler was not to be distanced in the^race to see who could spend the most^money with the lowest possible re^turns. The lesson t.lioitltl be a valuable^one to future census takers.
ANOT ABU TRIAL.
Theformal trial of llev. Dr. Ilriggs^on charges of heresy is announced to^begin before the New Vork Hresbytery^the first week in October, and the^country may expect a memorable^scene. While it is not for sinners to^criticise the proceedings of the elect, it^noes sei m a little o.'il to learu that the^^^prosecution^ of l^r. Ilriggs will be^conducted by one l'oh liol McCook, ^a^railroad lawyer and an expert on in^tiiciite questions ol corporation law.'^An ecclesiastical trial rounds harsh^enough to laymen who have been^taught that all is love and period fel^lowship in the Christian church, but to^go otilside and hire a professional law^yer to conduct the | rosectitiou, as if^the accused minister had committed^some criminal oflei se instead ol hold^ing views upon eerta.n points ot doc^^trine possibly not m consonance with^those held by other ministers of the^same denomination^this sennits ^ ome-^^ hat harsher.
It'sall right, of course, there are^plenty of picceilvuts lor that sort of^thing, and Dr. Ilriggs may, if he^chooses, engage prolcs-ional counsel to^dolt ml him, so that he need not be^placed at a disadvantage. The lawyers^i an snap and snarl aid quarrel and^light and browbi-.it witnesses ut.d play^all manner of strategic tricks, and^that's alt right, too. It ^s tint only^tier privilege, it Is their business.^This Colonel McCook.it MMDS, is going^at work in the intirest of his clients^with a right good will. ^For the pur
poseof this trial,^ says a New York^newspaper, ^he has explored all the^cobwebbed recesses of ecclesiastical^1 iw a id practice. His band has drawn^the indictment. The indictment will^charge a violation of the ordination^vows taken by all Presbyterian minis^^ters. The several counts will be based^upon his most lecent books, speeches^and review articles.
Well,let them go it. It would seem^to a rank outsider m if the gentlemen^interested in the prosecution of Dr.^Briggs ought from the very nature of^the case to be sufficiently well versed^in regard to the points in dispute to^take charge of the trial themselves, bat^perhaps they aren't.
FINE ART IN WARFARE.

'loinHi^ flilc-cu News.
liSSMMSM HsM thu war authorities of Eu^^rope nre deeply impressed by tile per-^formaneo of the Mannliehcr nflaa in thu^hand* of the insurgent Chilians, who. by^their ni^l, recently induced Dictator Hal -^inacL-da to go elsewhere lo do his dictat^^ing. Thu Austrian soldiers are armed^with these handy weapons, and the other^notion* are wondering whether they^would not do well to run up a lull at the^gunsmith's font few million Monnliehers^in order that they too may lie ready to do^their killing after thu phasing Chilian^fashion. What is particularly attractive^lo connoisseurs in manslaughter about^the trims is that they not only destroy^men rapidly but that they do it neatly.^The wound caused by the bullet abowsno^j.igtfcd edge*, but is round and t.dy and^Pored in a strictly workmanlike manner.^It is u pleasure to kill your enemy easily^and with professional nicety of touch.
Nothingcould be more annoying to a^person of re lined feelings than to find^that any little piece of shooting per^^formed by him bud heon accomplished in^a bungling fashion. To puncture your^man is, of course, something, but to^puncture him in such a way that be will^fuel proud of the mark and will send you
note( xpressing his thanks.prorided ha^survives, is a really esthetic triumph.^^Since tho war authorities have rejected^the plan ol an ingouiwus sen ntist.who of^^fered lo show how an army might bo^chloroformed at its guns and taken pris^^oner before it knew what had struck it,^perhaps they could do nothing better^than prom-mice in favor of guns that do^their ahootinp with great precision and^yet pile up their sluiu compactly and de^^cently. If tho projectors could manage^also to pin boiiijuei* on the bosoms of the^coals ol those whom they have ^removed'^^to use the gentle euphemism so happily^applied by Minister Hat Esau to gentle^^men suddenly take elsewhere by Irish^revolutionary methods^there would be^nothing more to be desired.

Thisis the one way ill which the silver^question can he permanently settled with^^out disturbing the unit of values. Say^ISsBB Ml ver is worth a dollar an ounce.^Under such a provision as this the gov^^ernment on is eeipt of 10,000 ounces of^silver could issue certificates for that^sum, each 10 dollar certificate staling^the fact that it represents 10 ounces of^silver, and will be redeemed with that^amount of metal on presentation. The^111 dollar vahnt of the certificate will be^-imply thu bullion value of tho metal^Of courso such a policy would necessi^^tate the redemption of the present silver^dollar containing 711 cents worth of metal^and would imply the establishment of a^new silver coin with about one-third more^weight. Hut for the actual coins tiler-^would tie hide demand, while the deposit^of silver for certificates would be in ex^^act ratio as the needs for currency were^more imperative than the uses of silver^in the arts.
Tinswould involve a decided departure^fr-'iu the policy of either party on die sil-^vi r issue; but it is the only w ay iu which^thu free use of wdveras a basis for motley^can be i.ceureil, without u change from^gold monometallism to silver monometal^^lism, and a reduction of the unit of^values, to about three-fourths of the pros^cut standard.
