TUESDAY, JULY 12, 1881 EDITORIAL NOTES squaw William Morgou's bones cannot be permit ted to rest in peace. Every few years it .is claimed they are found, and their discovery heralded throughout the land. Quite recent ly a nee set has been discovered which was supposed to bo Morgan's, but now it Irans pires the bones are the last remains of an old The Iowa Republicans nominated O. H. Manning for lieutenant-governor and Judge Austin James for supreme judge. The fol lowing plank appears in the platform adopted by them: " Resolved , That the Territories must be absolutely free from the debasing ef fects and pernicious influences of polygamy as the States now are of slavery." it would be well for the United States if the national administration would adopt and enforce a resolution of like character. WHEAT ESTIMATES. Some time ago a St. Louis wheat expert figured lip the shortage of that staple in the United States for . tie present year at 140,000, 000 bushels as compared with last year. If this were the case w e should have almost no wheat for export. But now comes a Detroit wheat expert who shows l,y reliable esti mates that the country will bave at least 213.000. 000 bushels for export. According to his estimates the outlook for a good wheat crop for the present year is much Detter than it has been generally supposed to be. As a surp'u3 of wheat for export means a balance of trade In favor of the United States and an easy money in irket much interest lias been taken lo arrive at the probable amount which will be held for foreign consumption. The Detroit man shows that the whole amount raised during the year 18S0 amounted to 502,049,115 bushels, and that the home consumption for the same period amounted to 292,000,000 bushels. The exports for the corresponding period of time amounted to 160.000. 000 bushels, which leaves about 50, (100,000 busliels to be added to this year's sur plus for exportation. The crop for the cur rent year is estimated at 455,000,000 bushels which added to the surplus of last year brings the grand total for home use and ex portation up to 505,000,000 bushels. If the same amount, only is used at home this year as the last, the country will have 213,000,000 bushels for expor'ation. In the history of this country we have never had a demand from abroad approximating to this great re serve. In the worst conditions Europe ever experienced the exports from the United Stales did not exceed 180,000,000 bushels,and now as there is every indication that average crops will be raised abroad the question comes up what will the country do with lier surplus breadstuff's? THE NATION'S BALANCE SHEET. The financial statement showing the bal ance sheet for the fiscal year ended June 30, 1881, is now at baud, and ai it pres « .s many features ot interest to the mass of the. peo ple, we give below the principal ones. In the amount of revenue collected the statistics are highly satisfactory and are a flattering commentary upon the business of the coun try. The increase of revenue is due wholly to the increase in the business ol the nation and not to the imposition of a higher rate of taxation . The revenue for the fiscal year ] ended as above noted, amounted to $303,250,- j 000 against $333,526,000 in 1880, showing an increase of nearly $30,000,000; of this sum the amouut collected from tariffs was $197, 250,000, an increase of $10,700,000 over the preceding year; and the home taxation which brought into the treasury $124,000,00# in 1880. yielded $135,000,000 in 1881, an ln . j erease of $11,000,000 from that source. ! The receipts from miscellaneous sources were ! $31,000,000 against $22,900,000 in 1880, swell- ; ing the resources of the government $8,000,- | 000 making the increase of revenue collected | trom all sources $tHJ,000,000. It must he re meuihered that this increase is tiie result of irrfiwtli of My« irial of tl»« country and no« from tlie laying of udd^ion al burdens upon the pe-'ple iu the form of a higher rate of taxation. YYhen this is consid ered the increase would seem to indicate tliat ! the treasury of the United States is in s. very I healthy condition and that by the practice of j economy on tlie part of ti e administration ' tbe Iia'ional debt «nul l, in the course of a ; few yeais, be entirely liquidated. But when we come to.look at the expenditures for the j year named we are forced to the conclusion that tlie prospect is not so inviting as at first j glance it would appear to be. We find that tlie aggregate expenditure for the year was $263,846.000, only $4,1X10,000 leas than it was in 1880. Iu view of the fact that the interest charge was $11,OIK),000 less, than it was in 1880, the decrease is not what might be expected. But we also fiud that the, ordinary expenditures of the government which were $171,885,000 in 1880 jumped up of the government were nearly $100,000,000 in excess ofits expenditures which sum has been applied to the payment of the national debt. In view of the fact that each man, woman and child in the United States pays annually a little over $7.25 to tlie general government it would seem that the public s . , ... debt should be reduced more rapidly. That it is not suggests to the inquiring mind the nneMion: what haa become of the public mon 0 f f For an answer the seeker after the knowledge to referred to the result of the in Iigatioue now going on in tbe several de partaient« of the government. SCHEMES FOR COLONIZATION. I ist» are investing their money at the present I time are schemes of one kind or another for the colonization of different portions of the southwest. In some instances these schemes are hacked by European capital and bid fair to become financial successes. One for the settlement of an extensive tract of land in northwestern Texas is projected by an Eng j lish company who are the owners of the I steamship line now tunning from Liverpool ; to New Orleans. This company proposes to j utilize their traneiiortation facilities to further : the object. Instead of sending their steam ers to New Orleans for grain in ballast, as heretofore, it is intended to load them with . j emigrants to settle the laud, they own m the j portion of Texas named. In transporting the passengers the company makes a profit and another is made by selling lands to them. Not only are portions of Texas to he thus settled, but Arizona and New Mex'co are the objective points for other schemes of the same character but of less importance. But it is for '.lie settlement of the northern paid of Mexico that the grandest efforts in the col ! onization line are being invoked. There has recently been organized in Kansas a colony with a membership of over four thousand persons, whose objective point is the north ern provinces of that inviting country. This colony expects to be established upon the lands during the present year. There can be no question that the great incentive to these colonization schemes is the building of the great lines of railways through the southwest. The Texas Pacific, the Southern Pac'fie, now in course of completion, and the lines projected through Mexico by Grant and others are exerting a tremenduous in fluence iu directing the course of immigra tion towards that quarter. What those rail roads are doing for that section of the coun try, the Northern Pacific, the Canadian Pa cific and the Utah & Northern will do for the northwest. As those last named lines are advance' 1 toward completion, the country will invite the presence of immigrants, and colonization societies will then find it to their advantage to respond to that iuvitatiou and occupy the vast areas of promising lauds now open to settlement. THE SUCCESSION. President Garfield may recover trom his wound. It is sincerely hoped by all the world iiat be will, yet it cannot be denied that his situation is extremely critical and his death may immediately follow the development of more unfavorable symptoms. Should this unfortunate event occur, the universal regret which the whole Americm people will feel cannot obscure its grave political importance. The possibility of the death of the president and vice-president when there is neither a president pro tern oi the senate nor a speaker of the house elected, does not appear to have been considered by the framers of the con stitution, and such an event is not provided for by the constitution or the laws of cungress. Section 1 of the fifth claiiie authorizes con gress to legislate for such a contingency but it seems that body lias not fully performed the duty. The clause referred to reads as fol lows : "In case of the removal of the president from office, or of bis death, resignation or in ability to discharge the powers and duties of said office, the same shall devolve on the vice president, aud the congress may by law pro vide for tue case of removal, death, resigna tion or inability of both ihe president and vice-president, declaring what officer shall act a3 P ras 'dent, all; * sl, di officers shall act ] accordingly until the disabil ty be removed j or a president shall be. elected." In pursuance of the authority then given it, congress passed a law iu 1792, of which the following is one ofits provision This provi sion was afterward re-enacted m section 146 of the last revised statues ; "In case of removal, death, resignation or j inability of both the president and vice-pres ! ideato '' the United States, the president of ! tbe sel| ate, or if tbere is none, then the speak ; er of tlle !,ollse of representatives, for the time | bei "S, **'»'1 ^ ™ president until the disabil | '*5' sba ** be removed or a president elected.

Some one lias been bunting among the musty records of the past and has unearthed an authority that agrees with Mother Shlpton in her celebrated prophecy. This authority gives us the full particulars concerning the end of the world» According to the writings of oue Leonardo Aretiuo, an Italian author, rho lived, flourished and lied in the four teenth century, this great event will come off' on the 15lh of next November. We are as sured, however, the grand smash-up will not come suddenly upon us, in the twinkling of; in eye, as it were, but the sweetness will be : •long diawn Jut." Fifteen days will be oc- | :upiod iu the destr 'Ctiou of all living things, j after which the great pulse of nature will cease to beat. We will bear no screaming of women nor groaning of men, for all human beings will lose the power of utterance some time before the fatal day arrives ; in fact they It be as dead as the Capulets 'ere the band of time points to the last day. The cata clysm will begiu by an uprising of the waters of the earth anil both continents will be sub merged. Although our distinguished author ity does not inform us of the maimer of our taking oft'," it would seem that lie lias left us to drown. Boiled down, his prophesies amounts to this : The earth will be covered with water ; its inhabitants will lose their speech, then die; and on the 15th of Novem ber, 1S81, their remains and the earth will be utterly destroyed. In the meantime, in ttie face of this proph ecy, we presume the world will jog along about as usual. All the great enterprises of the day will be carried on. The Utah <& Northern railway will be at Butte, and the Northern Pacific employing every available means to reach it. Our merchants will keep up their stock and collect their bills. \ r oung men will swing on the front gate and whisper sweet nothings in the ear of their ''best girl." There will be marrying and giving in mar riage, and another generation of human be ings will be born to take our places, and when the fatal day—the 15th of November— shall arrive, nine-tenths of mankind will have forgotten the lately unearthed Italian and his foolish prediction, and be prepared to bear the prophecy of another idiot. A TRIP TO BOULDER CITY. Whp.t a Reporter of the Miner Saw, and How it Appeared to Him— The Park—Bison Creek— Basin City—The Pic nic—Etc., Etc. Early on the morning of the Fourth a Mix Ell reporter mounted the box beside the driver of one of Gilmer & Salisbury's fine] coaches for a trip to the shady nooks that may be found along the banks of the beauti ful Boulder, "l'ete" held the ribbons over four spanking bays that appealed to know just what was expected of them, aud with the "star spangled banner" waving at the crest of each, they rattled off towards the 1'ark, apparently anxious to honor the day by an exhibition ol unusual speed. Every one on the route knows "Pete" as a careful, accommodating driver, but it is not so well known lhat tile fair maidens of Boulder, at a festival recently held in that merry little burg, voted Mr. Mitchell, as they very prop burg, voted Mr. Mitchell, as they very prop erly call our "Pete," the handsomest young man in the country. If "handsome is that handsome does," then the ballots were justly cast, lor "1'ete" always "arrives on time," and thus far tias preserved the perpendicular ity of the coach during the past winter's deep snows and the spring's mud which prevailed, in the seasons named, on this much maligned, hut the most beautiful mountain highway in the Territory. We say beautiful, and those who will leave the hot, dusty streets of Butte when the piercury is playing "hide and seek" among the small figures of the nineties cer marked upon the thermometers, and take a I drive over the Park road, will, we feel as- 1 j () sured. unhesitatingly concur in tlie opinion, j The cool, bracing mountain air that knocks j a couple score of years from off the age of | an octogenarian ; the pure, cold streams that | n dashing down Hie moYiutain sides on eitli er hand sing temperance songs, whose rael j od y wou j d make tlie inebriate forget or fore-! go tlie w j ne cup . ,i le | ot - ty p j lies w i lose low _ j g j eri „„ rreal8 m0V ed by gentle zephyr, appear ! to nod a welcome to the passing stranger, | will force the least œsthetic to exclaim "beau tiful !" As we passed through the Park, each gurgling rill aim swaying pine seemed to join in softly singing Hail Columbia, Yankee Doodle, and tlie Star Spangled Ban ner. Nature was celebrating the "Glorious Fourth." and while listening to her music we drove up to tlie Park station. Here one of those splendid repasts for which this station j . , ,| is famous was served to a famishing crowd, and after changing horses we again sped over ' the Park for the head of Bison creek. i In tlie Park a large number of bay ranches has been laken up and fenced. The grass cut on them is of that kind known as "spring" grass and makes inferior hay. These ranches may be made much more val uable than they now are if they were seeded down to red top or timothy. As the soil does ' ! ,,ot »>«* presence of alkali, there is j on the Park would become permanent bonau ] zas. The road over the Park could be material i ly improved By corduroying some places and | bridging others. When this shall he done j and the recks and tlie stumps removed in one i or two places ou Bison Creek, the road from Boulder to Butte will become one of the fiu ___... ! es raount »"' '"gbways in the territory. At j present the few sott spots and rough places , may distract the attention of the rheumatic j passenger from the beautiful scenery which ] ,,leels t,le eye on eTery hand ' but ' while tl,ese "lay nli »de bard and smooth by the ex 1 penditure of a few dollars, millions of treasure cannot fashion or make the gorgeous views that unfold themselves at every step like a moving panorama, on this beautiful mountain thorough fare. On Bison Creek, and near ill« lower end of the Park, the Laveli Bros, have a saw mill that is turning out exoetlent lumber and su perior shingles, which are hauled to the Butte market for sale. Lower down on the cieek Is the mill of Mr Uartwc 11. This gen tleman lias a large amouut of first-class lum ber in his-yard, from which Basin City and points below depend for their supply. Bison Ureek is lined with a magnificent growth of white pine, among' which millions of fouc ing and telegraph poles may be found, and trees suitable for working up into flooring, siding and fencing lumber can be obtained, At Bison Greek station another change of horses is made. Mis. Mead presides over the culinary department at this excellent stop ping place, and "Cal." satisfactorily performs he duties of host. Mrs. M., who is an en lmsiastic disciple ot Isaac Walton, keeps her table bountifully supplied with fresh moun tain troul, and the weary traveller, after par taking of the dainties to be fotmd upon it, feels like camping right there. VCal." in formed us that his stock cattle wintered fine ly during the past extraordinarily cold season, and that since lie lias been there—about four years—lie has not fed a pound of hay to any of his horned stock, save a few milch cows, nor has he lost a hoof for want of food. How is this for a winter range near the sum mit of the Rocky Mountains? At Basin City we found everyone happy, whether ever the prospects of a glorious fu ture for their beautiful fiourishing mining camp or because they were in the middle of a g orious fourth, we will not venture to say As we saw no inebriated men, the first named reason must be given for their cheer fulness. Without parading all the reasons for the faith within us, we assert oui*belief tha? Basin City will, in time, be come one of the most prosperous and richest mining camps in the territory. It has the mines and plenty of them, but it needs just what scores of other mining vamps in the country need—capital to work the large lodes in its vicinity and to erect mills to treat the ore. At present hut one mill is in operation. This belongs to the Boulder mining company and is being constantly kept employed with paying results. Passing down the roesy stream we saw when nudway between Basin and Boulder City, wliat we took to be a general conven tion of all the inhabitants of Jefferson coun ty, but upon inquiry we learned it was a pic nic parly composed of the people of Boulder, Basin and the Comet mine. There were a thousand or less, present, just how many we will not venture to say. It was a jolly gather ing and after looking over them the passen gers united iu declaring that finer looking men, more beautiful women and handsomer children and babies never met at a picnic be fore. Just as our friend Trotter was discours ing eloquent music vvitli the dinner bell ' ?ete" pulled up in front of the hotel al Bo ilder City, and our enjoyable drive was at an end. Boulder City does not put on metropolitan airs, but it is a snug, pleasant little town, composed of people who have something to do and who k< ep themselves busy in doing it. A hotel, blacksmith shop, butcher shop, three church, one or two places where li stores, a church, one or two places where li quid refreshment may be found and several private residences constitute the burg. The valley is surrounded by a cordon of mines that will in the near future be successfully worked. When this shall be done Boulder City will spring into a town of no inconsiderable iuipor tance. At present it is supported by the trav eling public and the trade of the surrounding country which is constantly increasing. Pla cer mining is carried ou at Spring bar and up the Little Boulder. At the former place Mr. Curren is using about 800 inches of water in washing down a thirty foot bank which has I from g|s l0 tell feet of ptt y ing grav el in it. Ad 1 j () ; a i U g Ur. Curren's claim is that of Messrs, j ]j0tt) Pom . e alld Jones . Both companies are j doing good work with every prospect of mak | ing a good run for the season. Judging from | the area and depth of the ground owned by the two companies it will require a couple of generations to work it out.

GUITTEAU IN THIS CITY. i Story Told oy a Montgomery Street Lawyer. It was one morning «bout' 1 nice years ago that a young man entered the office of a prominent attorney-at-law on Montgomery street. The young man asked, "do you know me ?" The attorney who had not seen him for twenty-three years, immediately recog nized him from his wonderful likeness to his faillir. The young men held out bit card, which read as follows : CHARLES J. GUITTEAU, Attorneg-at-Law, Honore Work, Chicago. When the news of the attempted assassi nation of President Garfieli^ was received yesterday, a thought struek the attorney-at law already mentioned. He looked over his collection of dusty cards from old college mates and acquaintances of a score of years and found the card he was in search of. He had been admitted to practice in the circuit court of Illinois in 1858, his diploma being attested by Luther YY . Guitteau, the then clerk of the court and the father of the young man. The attorney and the father were well acquainted, the fo.tner also knew Charles, who was then hut a lad. It was under these circumstances that the young man addressed himself to our attorney-at-law upon his arriv al in this city. Having been in the city two or three days young Guilleau and his new ac quaintance made a trip around the city one night to see the sights, particular attention being paid to Chinatown and the attractions in that vicinity, which were subjects of more interest to the stranger in those years than now. At any rate, the sights having been seen, the couple found tliemseves at midnight on tlie corner of Pine and Stockton streets. There they stood and talked for sometime. Young Guiteau announced that lie had come to California to make quite a long stay in viewing the natural curiosities of the coun try. Having concluded to make a prctrsjted visit he had iu the spirit of economy taken up Ilia abode iu a lodging-house in the immédi ats vicinity instead of a hotel. He promised faithfully to see his companion on the follow ing day, and the two parted. Guitfeau never kept the appointment, aud the first informa tion had of his whereabouts by the attorney was when he learned that his young friend had taken the morning train for the east without any previous preparation. Tne attorney-at-law was sought last night by a reporter, and being engaged in conversa tion, expressed himself as having no the slighest doubt but that the assassin and the young man spoken of were the same person. The gentleman considered young Guiteau to have beeu a person oi a very eccentric disposi tion, as was evidenced by the fact of bis sud den departure, after having, as he said, arriv ed and made all preparations for a lengthy slay. The descriptions of him in the dispatches are very accurate. As lie remembered him Guitfeau had a very peculiar look. He had a long, thiu nose, showing the nostrils very prominently. The nose wa3 a compromise between £the Grecian and the Roman, and the bride.- being very slight gave him about the ,es a eertain'indeliuable app.-arance of lacking strength. He was of nervous character and diminutive physique, ne seemed to be a promising young man, of good morals, and, as far as the gentleman knew, not inclined to dissipation. Guitleau stated that he was a member of the Y oung Men's Christian Association, and it seemed to the gentleman, who was his chaperon, that j having been under moral restraint at home, lie had let loose all his moral restrainst when here and removed from parental ties. Ho was au American by birth, but of Freucli descent, as was also his father, who after wards became a bank director,but in all prob ability is now dead. He came from a good family, and the, son s act will be to them a se vere blow. After his sudden leave our at torney-at-law never heard of him again, and as to the claim that Guitteau was once con nected with insurance circles, the getleman said that it was not so,for if it were lie would certainly have known of it .—Nan Francisto Chronicle, July 3.
