Only one Commis ioner, Mr. Batterton, was present. Of the est, Col. Morse was detained in the neigli lorliood of New Chicano by business engage ments and Mr. Zenor was absent on a visit to he National Park. Owing to this failure to leet on the day prescribed by law many are uclined to doubt the legality of any meet ug which may hereafter be held. But tlie Board ot Equalization is subject to the rules ;overning executive bodies, if so, a quorum can legally transact any business coming reg ilarly before it: and a minority can adjourn from day to day until the requisite quorum lembles. Now the Board of Equalization lias a meuibeiship of only three. Two of hose members form a quorum for tlie legal ransaciion of business, and hence, strange tough it may sauud at first, one member institutes the minority by which a regular eetlng of the board can be declared ad urned. Mr. Batterton " met together " on fouday, the 20th inst.,aud when he declared le meeting adjourned we think the action of îy meeting subsequently held in pursuance ' that Adjournment will te held valid in lair. Special Offer! -THE Daily Miner during the Campaign FOR $ 1 . 50 . K. re to to tlie of ad on of The DAILY MINER will be sent by mail to any address from this date until November 0, 1880, or during the Territorial campaign, for $1.50, payable in advance. The campaign' both national and local, promises to be excit ing, and all intelligent readers will desire to be tee// informed as to the course of current events. This they can do by taking advantage of our very liberal offer. In its telegraphic columns the MINER will present all impor tant net os, and only important news ; unim portant dispatches, amounting only to a waste of the reader's time, being always rejected. The local campaign will be fully treated by the regular staff and by correspondents sta tioned at all the principal points in the coun ty. No other medium of information, for residentsPf the 1IW Side, is tv be compared with that embraced in this offer. EDITORIAL NOTES. Venner, the weather iiend, is predicting very cold and stormy weather for the remain der of September and tbe early part of Octo ber. Upon tbe receipt at New Y oik of news from the Maine election a presidential pool box was opened in the parlors of the Fifth Avenue Hotel by an assembly of capitalists, politicians and business men who happened to be present. One bundled thousand dollars' worth of pools were sold within a few min utes, and when the average was struck it was found that Hancock for first choice brought $130 to $50 ou Garfield. Experience gained on our Pacific railroads demonstrates the fact that the shaking and jolting inseparable from a loug passage by rail always reduces a large percentage of tea to the form of powder, which is not recog nized in the marketas a merchantable article. It is as fine as gunpowder, but fur all that it is not received as gunpowder tea, and the more of this pulverized tea that is found at the end of the journey, the more serious the loss sustained by the importer. With tlie completion of the Isthmus canal, the tea of China and Japan will take that route to New York. As we expected, the nomination of Sanders —a narrow minded, bigoted political fanatic —has had its logical effect in the way of driv ing back into the ranks democrats who for any reason either were or fancied themselves to be disaffected toward the nominee of their own party. After the little excitement at tending our primary at Butte there were a few democrats who felt like standing aloof and allowing the ticket to pull through as best it might without further assistance from them than their votes. But the choice of Sanders as nominee of the opposite party was just a little too much, and to-day some of the most energetic workers on our side of the house are to be found among the men who once declared they were going "to lay back and take it easy " during the campaign. The Southern Intelligencer, published at Richmond, Va., and until quite lately a re publican paper, has come out in support of Hancock and English. In an article explain ing the change the editor says the republicans are neither neutrals nor cowards, but simply powerless against the odds that stand ready to overwhelm them, and that whoever says there is the least chance of carrying the state for Garfield is a fool, or else is playing upon tlie credulity of the people. How many papers have turned and forsaken their old re publican ways, to support Hancock? If a list of such papers could be prepared it would furnish a most striking commentary on the political sentiment of the hour as well as a I most valuable indication of the result of November 'j election. Now and then is re ported the change of a democratic sheet to the support of Garfield; but for one conver sion of this description there are at least ten of tlie opposite to be noted. And it will not be forgotten that among the latter are three highly influential German papers published in the doubtful state of Ohio. Tlie clearing house showing given in to day's dispatches indicates a very healthy growth of trade in all the principal marts of •tie Union during the past twelve months, il -ie particularly isthisthe ease with New Or leans, whose gain over the corresponding week of last year is no less than 07 per cent. But then there are reasons to believe that the clearing house lias fallen into the hands of rebel brigaders, and that the statements pub | lished are base fabrications, intended tocover j census frauds in the south. The same autbor ! ity, or one equally unreliable, would j have us believe that tins year the cotton crop will be fully a fourth more than a good average, and that the negroes are all at work, and not only that hut are actually contented and well satisfied with tlie wages received from their former owners. Such are the stories the rebel brigadiers would have us believe, whereas we know full well on tlie authority of Jim lilaiue and others 1 equally veracious that the southern negroes ; have all taken refuge in the swamps or are hiding in the cane brakes to escape, if possi : hie, the bloodhounds of their pursuers. Deer j and other large game having become extinct j in the far south the sport of nigger stalking has become very popular in lieu of those formerly ' followed. Racks of well-trained bloodhounds, J kept on every well regulated plantation, are 1 used only in this sport of nigger stalking, in | to which they enter with the relish of the I genuine hunting dog. When brought on the I ground three or lour nigger babies are always ! fed to them, that they may enter with keen zest en the sports of the day. It is in harm ! less recreations of this nature that our south j ern fellow citizens find a much needed relax I atiun irom the arduous labors of the poker ! table or race course. LOH« TERM» OF COURT. At Deer Lodge complaints arc to be heard on every side from persons who are kept in attendance at court week after week, to the neglect of their business. Farmers, miners and business men from Philipsburg, New Chicago or from the far northern camps have been summoned for service on the jury, aud there they must stay for an indefinite period while the tedious criminal trials from Butte are being conducted. Tbe court has already been in session two weeks, and to-day the first criminal trial, that of Dolan, charged with stealing bullion, will be taken up. This slow rate of progress has been due to causes which could not be obviated, but even with the more expeditious discharge of business to be expected hereafter, the criminal causes awaiting trial cannot possibly be disposed of in less than three weeks more, which gives a five-weeks term of court, to say nothing of the civil cases awaiting adjudication. It is not at all strange, then, that complaints should be deep and loud against such an order of things; but the worst of it is that even an aggravation of this inconvenience is to be ex pected for the future. Butte is growing as rapidly as ever, and with this growth it is only reasonable to expect a corresponding increase in the criminal cases originating in this neigh borhood. From term to term the criminal calendar will increase, the court sessions will grow longer, aud the jury service, which the residents of Lincoln gulch or the lower valley now find so onerous, will become steadily more and more of a tax unless some change in the present order of things be introduced. In the way of making such a change it is pro posed by some to have two lerin3 of court held at Butte every year, a proposition made two years ago, at the last regular session ot the legislature, but defeated through the Deer Lodge influence. Others favor a removal of the county seat to Butte, arguing that it will occasion much less inconvenience and ex pense for one man from Lincoln, or from Elk creek to make a business trip to the county seat at Butte than it would for fifty men from Butte to make a similar business visit to the county seat at Deer Lodge. Those figures may challenge attention, but all who inspect the court records, especially the criminal rec ords, will not describe as exaggerated the ratio here established between Butte and even the most populous of the northern camps in the mattter of being in attendance on the Dis trict Court in the character of juror, witness or litigant. A third party advocates the di vision of the county. This they declare must ultimately be done, as Deer Lodge county is considerably larger than some of the states of the Union, and with increase of popula tion its great size will be a cause of ever-in creasing inconvenience and expense to its citizens. Such in brief are the changes by one or the other of which it is proposed to seek relief from our present burdens. It might be difficult to predict which will find favor with the people, but clearly something must be done. If the extra expense conse quent upon conducting at Deer Lodge the trial of criminals whose offences have been committed at Butte—if this extra expense were borne by tlie people of Butte alone, cit izens living in other portions of the territory might not feel tliemselves interested in the matter. But those expenses are borne by all the tax payers of the county alike; and when those who foot the bill learn that the aggre gate amounts at least to $30,000 per aumun, they will be interested in bringing about such a change as will at once lessen their taxes, and at the same time relieve them from the immense inconvenience they are now sub jected to in tedious and expensive attendance at well nigh interminable sessions of court. THE ARCTIC SECRET. The return of Lieutenant Schwatke'» expe dition will revive in the minds of those who have reached middle age the recollection of what formed the most thrilling romance of their childhood's years—the fate of Sir John Franklin and Ins gallant, crew. To most of us Franklin is only known as a historic char acter, still many of our readers who yet en joy a vigorous prime can remember the tor turing anxiety with which the civilized world long waited for tidings which never came,- tidings of tlie "Erebus" and "Terror," Frank lin's two ships, which cleared from an English port in tlie spring of 1845, on a voyage from which they were fated never to return. That was Franklin's fourth voyage towards tlie North Foie. In early life he had served un der Nelson and took paît in the battle of Co penhagen in 1801. Later he served in the British navy in the war of 1812, and was wounded at the bailie of New Or leans. Subsequently he made three voy ages of exploration within the Arctic circle, once as commander of the Trent, in supporting Capt. Buchar, of the Dorothea, who was chief of an expedition setting out with the intention of proceeding to Spitzber gen and thence penetrating as far as possible the mysterious region lying to the north. Afterwards lie made two journeys to the Arctic coast of America, proceeding down the Mackenzie river to its mouth and then surveying the coast line for several degress of longitude on either side. In his naval career aud in his subsequent voyages in tlie service of science, Franklin had shown himself to he possessed of coolness, courage, good judg ment and a fund of inventiveness in the pres ence of new and untried situations which marked him as admirably fitted to lakecbarge of such au enterprise as an Arctic exploring expedition. Accordingly when the Erebus and Tenor were fitted out by the British Ad j miralty he was placed in command of the j 131 officers and men whom his fame as a bold aud successful leader induced i to join his standard. And so they ! sailed away on that bright spring morning—sailed away never to return, but instead to cause more anxiety throughout the world, and to be the occasion of more suffer lug iu the efforts subsequently made for their relief than ever fell to the lot of any equal a of is ot of di its by to It the cit the all the number of men to give rise to in any other instance to be cited in the world's experience. As time wore away, and no tidings from the voyagers were received, anxiety on their ac count began to be felt until at length a relief expedition was fitted out and sent to follow the route which Franklin was believed to have taken. This expedition was speedily followed by another, and then another, so rapidly that between the years 1848 and 1854 fifteen different expeditions "in search of Sir John Franklin" were sent out from England aud America. Still no tidings of the missing vessels or any of their crew, aud it was not until 1855 that Dr. Rae returned bringing with him unquestionably genuine relics ot tlie lost explorers. The story he told was sub stantially the same as that repeated by Lieut. Schwatke, the Eskimo having informed him that the last they saw of the explorers was a party of famished men dragging a boat over the ice near the mouth of Great Fish river ; the skeletons of those men being afterwards found where they had finally succumbed to the united attacks of frost and starvation. But at the present day relics of the Frank lin expedition can excite no such interest as their discovery would have aroused twenty five years ago. Then there was a reasonable hope that the hardy adventurers, some of them at least, might yet be rescued and brought back to the land of the living to relate to an eagerly listning world the secrets of the awfully mysterious north. But to-day no such hope is entertained. The fate of the Franklin expedition is established as much as is that of the steamer which clears port for a trails-Atlantic voyage and is never heard of again The most that can be done in that respect is to excite our sympathies or challenge our admiration by tales of patient suffering orsilent heroism, and these we find in tlie story as told in to-day's dispatches. It is principally in the interest of science that the achievements of Lieut. Schwatke are valuable. His report teaches us that a properly selected crew can prosecute voyages of exploration throughout the Arctic realm at all seasons of the year, and that it is not necessary to house up in winter as has heretofore been the custom. Profitting by his experience it is likely that some gov ernment will yet have the intelligence to se lect from tlie northern ports of Norway the seamen for its Arctic ship and to place this ship in command of an officer whose training and experience qualify him for tlie post. With a crew composed of men born to the sea, and almost natives of the Arctic regions, an officer of the right stamp might hope to penetrate to the pole and to unlock those secrets whose knowledge, as the scientists in form us, is to be of such great and enduring value to the world. ly a is THE ELECTRIC I.IU TIT of of of en tor tlie un Co the was Or voy in out the of he Ad the as In an article in tlie AuW/i American Re view for October, Mr. Edison gives the public to understand that his electric light is by no means a failure, even if we have heard but very little about it lately: With regard to the delay experienced in submitting his latest and most important invention to the test of practical use, Edison very reasonably asks us to consider the great difference between even the most successful experiments of the labor atory and the practical establishment, on a commercial basis, of tbe resulting discovery, and more especially when it is designed to enter iuto competition with interests and in fluences so extensive as those of the great gas companies throughout the Union. Referring to similar delays in the case of other aud highly importait discoveries, the writer re minds us that, the first photograph was not taken until many yeais after the essential principles of photogiapliy had become well known ; that the steam engine was not in vented un.il long after men had become fa miliar with the scientific principles involved in its construe ion ; and that even when it was invented long years passed before it was successfully employed for purposes of travel, in the steamboat and locomotive. Finally, when it was so employed in an experiment resulting in the fast running steamers, or lightning expiess nains of the present day, it was in direct opposition to the opinion of sei entifie men who were almost unanimous in denouncing it as the hobby of a crack-brained enthusiast, just as many of our savants are de nouncing the electric light ; or rather the principle involved in it, which is the divisi bility of the electric current. But Edison as sures us that the light is a success, and fur ther, that it will be on trial in u very short time, as all ariangcmeuts have been made for a public demonstration to be given at Menlo Park within the next two months. Follow ing tlie demonstration the electric light will be immediately offered for genet a) use, and first in the city of New Yoik. The appara tus, as he describes it, consists in the first place of a "dynamo-machine" for generali the requisite electricity. This machine is worked by a 120 horse-power steam engine, and is connected by wires with all the differ ent houses or establishments which it is to furnish with electric illumination. Upon being generated in the dynamo the current is divid ed by a process not explained and seutcours ing along a multiplicity of wires to an elec tric lamp at the extremity of each. The im proved electric lamp consists of an oval bulb of glass about five inches in Height andhav a hollow stem through which two platinum wires enter the cavity. On the inside the wires are connected by a loop of carbon whose incandescence is to furnish the light As soon as they are thus connected the air in the bulb is exhausted by a mercury pump un til not more than a one-millionth part remains, when the stem is hermetically sealed and the lamp is tit for use. To light it requites sim ply that the platinum wires from the stem he connected with tlie wire from the dynamo, when tlie carbon burns with a clear, white light, far steadier and less trying to (he eyes it the j than the yellow, flickering light of gas. Btirn j ing in a vacuum it is not consumed, the aver j age duration of a carbon loop being 830 hours o: about six mouths' use, four or five hours each night. When the carbon loop is final ly consumed tlie lamp lias to be replaced by a new one, a trifling consideration as their price is to be fixed at fifty cents each. The great advantages possessed by the electric light over gas are as follows : It furnishes a better light ; gives out no heat, and with its use there is absolutely no dan ger of fire. Aud then it is vastly cheaper. Gas is so expensive that its Introduction is war ranted only in the case of large towns, hut with the electric light any community able to purchase the dynamo and its accompanying steam engine, and then to pay the expense of operating the latter, can supply its members with the new light at about half the price of either coal oil or gas. If the experiments to be made next month be successful it will be but a short time before every little town in the United States will have its streets lined with glowing electric lamps. HANCOCK'S LETTER. In Hancock's letter we have a clear and forcible expression of his views on the subject ot "southern claims." About those claims our republieau brethren have lately allowed themselves to become sorely vexed in spirit with an anxiety which we hope to find set at rest by the very positive and unequivocal dec larations of the democratic presidential nom inee concerning them. We hope we shall hear no more about southern claims, rebel pensions, etc. For the sake of tlie respect which we would like to entertain for our po litical opponents it is sincerely to be wished that all such demagogic cries may hereafter be discarded, and that for the future they will address themselves to an honest discus sion of the points of difference really existing between democratic and republican policy Of all the low, disreputable, demagogic cries ever used in a campaign, tliat of "southern claims" is tlie lowest, most disreputable. In the writer or speaker who used it, it argued on his part an utter lack of truthfulness; and furthermore, that he had a contemptuous estimate of the intelligence and information of those whom he addressed. Cousidertlie facts of the ease The payment by the government of the United States of any debtor obligation such as those embraced in the comprehensive title 'southern claims," is positively prohibited by the fourteenth amendment, to the constitution. It is true that when we remember how the republicans, since their first access to power, have persistently continued to ignore the constitution, acting very often, indeed, as if they were not aware of the existence of rueli an instrument, we cannot blame them for supposing that their adversaries would prove equally regardless of constitutional trammels as soon as the voice of the people should place them in power. Still they should not have gone so far as to im agine tliat- the democratic party, or any other party, would otter violence to the constitution when the immediate effect of such violence could not fail to be the suicide of the party by whose agency it was perpetrated. And this is what an attempt to pay even the least among southern claims would amount to— the suicide of the democratic party. Suppos ing those claims to be recognized as vaiid, by whom would they be paid ? By the whole body of tax payers of the nation, northerners as well as southerners; but most of the bur den would rest on the north, where thegreat er portion of the wealth of the country is to be found. The proposition to impose such a burden on the people in favor of a few •!' tlie old slave-holding aristocracy, would be re/ sisted even by great numbers of the southern people themselves, whose taxes are already sufficiently heavy. But in the north, where the democracy must maintain its footing or else be s,vept from power—in the north, merely to entertain any such proposition would cause the instant disappearance of the democratic party beneath a majority of such magnitude as to render hopeless the prospect of its ever again emerging to the light of day. No one understands this better than the stal wart oiators and "organs" who would be de lighted at observing among their opponents the traces of a policy whose immediate effect would he the return of their own party to power; but so long as Hancock failed lo speak authoritatively on the subject they pre tended to be in an agony of fear concerning his Intentions. But now Hancock lias spok en, and in language not to be mistaken. "The government can never pay a debt, or giant a pension or reward of any soit lor waging war upon its own existence. To propose it would insult tlie intelligence of our people." This is surely sufficiently emphatic, but to avoid the possibility of ids words being mis understood, tlie General adds; "if 1 W eie president I would veto all legislation which might vorne betöre me providing for consider ation or payment of claims of any kind for losses or damages by persons who were in re bellion whether pardoned or not." If this is not sufficiently explicit will our republican friends kindly tell us what they would like in the way of an enunciation of principles. The Maine election, followed by the excel lent nominations made by the demoeiats of New Hampshire, has had the effect of addin« the old Granite state to the list marked " ' loul,tlul " for November. The llon.Frank Jones, democratic nominee lor governor of New Hampshire, is a statesman of proved ability, a business man of sterling integrity aud withal one of the most popular men in the state. Ilis nomination has inspired tin democrats ot New England with a world of confidence, and no one need he surprised if on the eventful 2d of November, Maine New Hampshire, Connecticut and Massachusetts declare by their votes that the political credit of the Mobilier candidate is « long way be low par. The Inter Ocean announces that in ease of Hancock's election August Belmont is >o be Secretary of the Treasury. A statement ot the Inter Ocean to this effect amounts to th« assurance that Mr. Belmont will not be Sec rvUry from aud after the 4th of Iiex . M , ' a is A VOICE FOR HANCOCK. 8ounds of Joy and shouts of glad n esu Echo through tlie Western realifi, For the North and South united Call our Hancock to the helm. Twenty years of wrong and sorrow Buried In his rule shall be ; Fifty million hearts shall hail him. From the mountains to tlie sea. All the States lift up their voices, 8outh and North and East ami West With a cry of exultation For the bravest and the best. Though a soldier and fooman In tlie deadly hour of light. We have tried and found this leader Braver In the cause of right. Not as emperor of a nation Will we crown lilm, nor as king ; No republic is our country From whose soil dictators spring. But a band of sovereign sisters, Each one equal to the rest, Do him honor, and united Spread their banner o'er his crest. Let the links be Joined together Tliat so long have lain apart, And let Hancock be the cement tliat will bind them heart to heart. -Cincinnati AVir/i OUR FHILimiBVRO LETTKI, Tlie Turf at Phi 1 1 patou rg— Visit of Cltisens—Departure of K. h, | bury—More Irregularities in f|| C | Service. of of as I i a ,i is aud ted, ks lilting id lal ;-|>e tout only lit is of in, isicaus in ) i, _ j id en lion tbe itld. ket the ces. at ove, lieh pay e fair , elles ' Editor Butte Mixer.
