SARTOR RESARTU3. The Min eh I as not stood forth as the champion of any man—whatever may he said to the contrary by our evening contem porary—but objects seriously to the perver ston or misstatement of facts which should be familiar to a school boy. When an ttempt ls l0 thrust from the drama of life, with an idle breath, a brilliant writer and a most happy feuilletonist, the MINER will al ways interpose a protest, on principle. The Wlitpr jn tb(> j n f er Mountain is unfortunately writer in too deficient in his literary and historical knowledge to assume the tripod of hypercrit icism. IJis article of last evening is an apol ogy for itself, as well as for its predecessor. H asserts no fact, but rather covers vague as sertions with vaguer explanations. We beg leave to letnind our esteemed eontempory that Appleton's Encyclopedia is not a com plete guide to the pleasant fields of contemporary French literature. if lie persevere in his large drafts on its contents he will continue to find him elf_as he does now—in the uufortunate predicament of the voting nun who had only read as far as C in bis encyclopedia, and was constantly well posted on China, but utterly ignorant of Japan.

There are people who live to he a hundred years old, and they are some who become fossilized before attaining man's allotted period. But let us answer our cotemporary's question. He says. afier speaking of the elder Cassagnac, "But what has his sou Paul giveu the world in the way of permanent literature that de serves such high Down encomium?" To whicli we reply that we decline to hire out as an encyclopedia, not.even as a substitute for Appleton, lie Cassagnac is well known to the readers and admirers of Gautier, De Musset and Murger. lie needs no introduc tion and no encomium. One word more. When writing English we write Latin Quarter, and when writing French we write Quartier Latin. X. B. This can positively not he found in Appleton. We have, however, a choice col eclion of works of the wicked coteinporary witters of France, to the perusal of which our neighbor is welcome. it of OUR LUMBER SUPPLY. There are those who pie iet that the lum ber supply of America is liable to early ex haustion, but. it is evident they have not ta ken into consideration tho vast, and as yet almost wholly unexplored, region north of Georgian Bay, and east of Lake Superior in the east and the ereat forests resting on the Pacific Slope in the west. 'I he former dis tricts, whicli have hitherto been regarded a almost valueless, seem now in a fair way of taking rank among the most valuable lumber resources. Colonel Mercer, an American rail way engineer, who ha recently been explor ing the regions north of Georgian Bay, says they found the pine timber of a superior qual ity, exceed! ng that of the Michigan forests. Colonel Mercer estimates that the area ex plored by his party would furnish 24,090,001), 000 feet of lumber, and they had not begun, according to the Indian guide - , to penetrate this immense forest tract. The explorers al so encountered small streams connecting with the Spanish River, which in the event of (lie future tapping of ibis great lumber supply, would serve admirably in floating the logs to the greater stream, whicli is tree from rapids and well adapted to ilie logging trade. The value of this great pine forest will perhaps be better understood wt eu it is stated the en tire stock of uncut timber in the State of Michigan is estimated by practical engineers at only 80,000,000,000 feet. Iu the West we have immense pine forests which have been, as yet, scarcely touched. The Northern Pacific Railroad Company alone owns 2,006,000 acres of timber land near Puget Sound, which are said to excel those of any other section of the country. Contiguous to these lauds and all along on the line of lhat great road west of the Rocky Mountains are dense, pine fores.s tnat liuve never resounded with the echoes of the woodman's axe. Missoula county possesses magnificent pine forests which will in the very near futuie play an important part in enhancing the prosperity of that garden spot of Montana. Viewing the lumber supply from the standpoint of the Rockies the people iu this latitude may entertain no apprehen sions concerning its continuance. With the completion of the Northern Pacific and the extension of the Utah and Northern the vast forests to the west of us will he placed al most at our doors. Th* fear of a diminished lumber supply therefore need deter no one j in if f™m driving his .takes in any part of our fa vered Territory. THE SPEAKERSHIP OF THE HOUSE. Tlie New York World's Washington cor I respondent says the election of so good . 1 behi,i ' 1 ,be c * ,ldi<1 »<Tr of a major ty of those " llc> r *8' dar| y entei '- he Speakership Dem icrat as Mr. Flower tu succeed Minister Morton in Congress has set the Republicans a! the capital gessipiug wildly over tlie Speak ship. I hey now tear that the Greenbackers may demand important places on tie House I committees by virtue of their holding noui ; inaily the balance of power in the House, j Choice committee places rank nexi to the I Speakership, for legislation is realty shaped j in committee rooms. Indeed the real motive : j j ! ! I j j race is to secure certain coveted committee appointments. The scheme just now con sidered by the Republicaas is how to get for Mr. Kelley, of Pennsylvania, the Chairman ship of the Ways aud Means Committee, ,. ,, . whtch is the best position m the Speakers gift. Mr. Kelley was a pioneer iu the Green back cause, and although of late his affilia lions have been entirely Republican, it Is taken k, ........ be d„, flitter; and sedaction even from Greenback quarters. So the chief obstacles to the con summation of tiiis pretty scheme will proba- | bly be the difficulty of holding the Green hackers together and the constant danger that j the two Virginia Readjusters may vote w ith the Republicans iu the matter of organiza- j tion. Several of the so-called Greenbackers, j it is known, have distinct prefeiftmees for one or the other of the two large parties and were elected either as bolters or as representatives of a disaffected class and not on financial grounds. The election of J. llyatt Smith, of Brooklyn, who is a Republican, is a case in point. Probably quite half of the dozen so called Greenbackers would feel noi only en tithd but called upon ta bold aloof from any plans looking to the benefit of Greenback ism, pure and simple. As the election in Virginia, resulted iu the victory of the Readjusters, it is lair to pre sume the Republicans will not lack the necessary strength to elect their Speaker and orgauize the House to suit their pleasure. But it is evident that large concessions must be made Readjusters iuthe way of prominent positions on important committees. They are now placed in a position where they are compelled to wear the unclean and poisonous garment with whicli they have clothed them selves, and they cannot, if they would, cast it off. Repudiation is the Nessos of the Re publican party and the burning w rath of an outraged people will become the pyre that will consume it. Republicans may propose but it will be debt-repudiators that will dis pose of the organization of the next House of Representatives. SENSIBLE WORDS. The report of the commissioner of Indian affairs recently made to the Secretary of the Interior is the most sensible document that has ever been issued from that department, Mr. Price, the comm'ssioner, appears to un dersiand the situation and to deal with ins subject in a practical manner. He thinks that, in some respects, a radical change should be made in the Indian policy. He does not be lieve in the present method of attempting to civilize Indians on the seve.al reservations. He holds that "the system of gathering In dians in hands or tribes on reservations and carrying them victuals and clothes, thus re lieving them of the necessity of labor will and uevercxn civilize thru." And argues that, if white men weie treated as the government treats the Indians "the result would certainly he a race of worthless vagabonds," and rightfully conteu that "it is only non-labor ing tribes that g upon the war path." and that the facts of history comp I him to say that the government is largely to blame for this condition of things. It is really refresh ing to hear such truthful, outspoken words from an officer iu the Interior department. Mr. Price must he aman of more than ordi nary nerve to thus beard the lion in his den. But the exigencies of the situation demands it and the commissioner is too honest to shirk his duly. His attack upon the Indian policy of the government should be stiengtheued by the press of the entire West. Mr. 1 'rice ve' y happily takes off the child ish policy pursued toward the Indians in the closing words of the report. In showing how the Indians manage io become the petted wards of the nation, he says : "They must refuse to work, refuse to be orderly and peaceable, and must commit some depreda tion or murder, and then a Gom mission will be appointed to treat with them and pay them iu goods, provisions and money to be have themselves." That is it, exactly. T h e Indian knows just how to shape his conduct to get the largest rations from the govern ment. He kuows that the "good Indinns" must take care of themselves, and that the government extends its aid to those only who cause it trouble. It don't take long for the average Indian to dis over this, and lie acts accordingly. He murders defenseiy settlers, oi to ita to the the It er, a in ia outrages their wives and daughters, a-nd j brains innocent children to gain a passport to the favor of the government. T is is ac corded him. An approved Christian is ap pointed to feed, clothe and otherwise provide for him at the expense of the government, and if he can manage to subsist upon what fails to cling to the hands of the aforesaid approved Christian, peace reigns upon the borders of his reservation, but if he cannot— if he is hall starved by tho agent, as he is in too many instauces—he turns to his old and familiar haunts and resumes,his depredations, only to be treated with, fed, clothed and cared for again by the government. The story is a familiar one to every Western pion eer, and Mr. Price's plainly spoken words will meet an endorsement at their hands. The report before us does not show that, tlie Commissioner suggested anything, save that a radical change should be made in the In dian policy. What change in lhat policy is contemplated by tlie head of the department may be inferred from the report of the "Sec retary of the Interion, whieli has already ap peared in the columns ot the Minek. In that report the Secretary simply recommends that Congress make liberal provision for the : education of the Indian youths; that the nura j l»-r&nd area of the reservations he diminisbn'', j Jut Indians he laugh! to be herdsmen in ! stead <d fanners in auch localities where the j ! lards cai.u.it be irrigated; tiiat Indian lilies j I to reservations be individualized and protects j ed by law, and that the more civilized In j dians be encouraged to abandtu their tribal ! rale* ions by setting up experimental forms of ; local ■ ovenuuent etc. These recommenda ! lions are in harmony with the present inefli , cient Indian system and contemplate au ad vancement along its line that, if headed by congress, can result in no permanenl good to the Indian. Tbe fact Is apparent that the In dians mu t be taken from under tbe control j oF til s I terior depaitmenl and transferred to ! 1,1,5 war de P ar , tm3Dt b ®f? ,e al ,'J >' ow 1 ever good m theory, will result adveutageoas , )y to them in practice. Mr. Price's sensible | words are eye-openers to this conclusion. j ■. 1 1 -----------u. —aw-v Is ! __? a . r ^condition never satisfies us: the pres j K.3.Ä ÜÂ-îfï ttS I continue te importune him. BETTER MAIL FACILITIES. A late telegram states that a meeting was held recently at Cheyenne to agitate the ques tion of increased mail facilities for the Pa ciSc Coa t, and that Governor Hoyt presented resolutions reciting the fact that the Terri tories of Wyoming Montana, Idaho, Utah and Washington, and the »States of Oregon, Nevada and California, containing over 1, 000,000 people, havo but one mail per day east and west; that tbe States and Territories named and the public press thereof be re quested to take such interest in the further ance or the design as to induce Congress In the premises as they may deem fit. The meeting suggested that, public meetings and petitions to Congress backed by an earnest effort of tbe press of tbe Pacific Coast would probably be more desirable methods of ac complishing tbe end proposed; that the press oi tbe Coast be appealed to for its aid and en couragement in furtherance of the object. A series of meetings will be h*ld on the Pacific Coast. Tvro malls per day are wanted. This is a move in the right direction. Th Government mail service was never intended to be self support in,'. The inventors of the postage stamp intended it simply as a certifi cats, and not as a source of revenue. Thu fact that any given mail route does not pay ita own expenses is by no means any argu, incut in favor of discontinuing service along that route. The people of Montana read more, and take more interest, in the carrent events of the nation's history than they get credit for. Tiie many intelligent persons who reside between Butte and New Chicago have a right to a daily mail, and are bitterly opposed to the permanent change from daily to tri-weckly mail service contemplated by the recent order of the Post Office Depart tmeut. Lat them come at once to the front and demaud that their rights he respected. A petitien should bo immediately addressed to the Department on this subject. NOT ALL SMOKE. The story going the rounds of the press, that Maliouo will be ottered a Cabinet posi tion, may yet prove to be founded iu some thing more substantial than a mere surmise. It ' as transpired that the notorious Raadjust er, in order to hold the straight-out Republi cans in his tight against the debt-paying Dem ocrats in the recent election in Virginia, made a great many promises, some of which, at least he cannot fulfill. Among others was one made to a prominent straight- ut Re publican, lhat iu .lie event of the Readjustee carrying the Virginia Legislature, the straight out should be elected UuLed States Senator in tue place of Mr. John VV. Johusl on, whose term expires March 3, 1883. But it now ap pears that Mr. Cameron, the Governor-elect, and two or throe oilier Readjustees desire and expect to succeed Mr. Johnston, and propose to make a light for Lae position. In the event ot alight between the Readjusters and sliaighoul Republicans for that particu lar office, tue Democrat* have intimated their readiness to join with the Republicans and elect ex Governor Wickham, a debt-paying Republican, and thus defeat Malione's scheme. To avoid this consummation and at the same time to preveu. a rupture between the Read justers and their allies it would be a fine streke of policy, on the pail of the manipula tors ot the recent campaign, to urge Mahone's transfer to the cabinet ami thus create anoth er senatorial vacancy to he filled, iu whicli event each party to Virginia's disgrace could be provided with a representative iu the United States Senate. This ia a beautilul little play which needs only Mr. Arthur's indorsement io per fect. This geutlemau's willingness to accede to the arrangement cannot he reasonably questioned in view of the urgent necessity for the continuance of the present harmonious re lations which exist between tlie Republicans a.ncl tiebL re|)mIi a Lois. Hence thsre leuiams j j but one oh* acie iu the way of fixing up the business and that is the outright refusal of Democratic Senators to confirm Mahone's ap poim meut, should it be made. They threat en to deadlock the Senate indtfinitely rather than see tlie areh-Repudiaior confirmed, and their threats may he heeded to the extent of breaking a scheme foreshadowed iu the re port noticed. There is a little fire beneath the smoke which the story has raised. as any the his the on, of a his all or to lia The New York Tribune don't like Gotham. In a recent issae il said: "We observe that George C. Gorham is a Candida 1 « for Assist- | ant Secretary of the Treasury. We feel au- , tharizvd to announce that he is also a candi- | Hale for anything he can get." Mr. Gorham ! is the Republican caucus nominee for Beere- I tajv of the Senate, and something must be I done with him. He can't he elected Secreta ry, hence he must ho providid for elsewhere, aud however dislaslelul he may be to Repub licans of the Tribune stripe the exigencies of the present situation demand that he shall not be cast aside. It is bitter imdiciue, but tbe half breed Tribune will be forced to swal low it. Street Obstructions Tlie ease of the city against D. A. McMil lan and John Clanton fur obstructing the street around their Park stieel blacksmith shop, was tried yesterday afternoon in the I'o- ' lice Court before Judge Wilcox aud a jury. The case against McMillan was abandoned. Mr. Clanton was re relented by Mr. W. O. Speer, and was triumphantly acquitted. Without aay allusion to this par ticular case, there is no doubt that the muni cipal ordinance against obstructing the streets and sidewalk s should be enforced to tbe letter. Every busiuess man should con aider the comfort of his neighbors, as well as bis own convenience, before encumbering t he adjacent street and sidewalk with lffs goods. Although the Repudiators with the aid or their Republican allies and Northern money secured a temporary victory in YTrginia, tbe coalition In Mississippi formed of Greenbact ers—Independents and Republicans met with an overwhelming defeat at the hands of the Democrats in that Statt. GARFIELD AND MACVEAGH. The Alleged Inside History of the Trouble Over Chandler's Nomination. A special dispitch from Washington to the w \ oik £im says. There is a curious complication," said a well-informed ex-politician, "about the Mac Veagh-Blaine imbroglio in the Cabinet, 20m nieuci g with the app in'incut of W. E. Chandler as Sol!eiior-Ge:,cral. That thing, as you may not know, was arrange! between Garfield and Blaine before MacVeagli was selected for tbe Cabinet. The object was to have Chandler where he could look after the Grant and Conkling people and checkmate any scheme they might have, it was not precisely what. Chandler wished, but he con sented. "MacVeagh firs, heard of Chandler's ap poifitment on bis arrival at Washington on morning from Philadelphia, and his spirit rose to tl.e highest pitch. Driving directly to the White House, lie demanded of Garfield what it meant. No man was ever in a more belligerent frame or mind than MacVeagh was then. Garfield was not prepared for such an exhibition, and was not successful in his attompt to mollify the Attorney-General, who, unwashed and with satchel in baud, was the most earnest individual the President had seen. He did not stop to mince things, and, telling Garfield what he thought would be come of his administration with such going on, informed tlie President he could have his resignation then and there; but lie would make things hot whichever way he decided. "•Uhl boy,'said Gaifield, 'let us sit down and talk about it.' Ibis, you know, was Garfield's way. Probably there are hundreds of pelions who feel a pride in having been familially slapped on the shoulder and called 'my old boy' by Gailield. It generally went a great way, hut not with MacVeagh He was in no such lmmor.- Evincing a disre spect lor that sort of thing, he aski d Garfie d what he was going to do about it, as he was ready to lake the return train if lhat wa* his wish. "It ended in an understanding that Mac Yeagh should stay and fight Chandler. If lie could pievent 1ns confirmation it would be all riilt, Garfield agreeing that nothing should he done io put Chandler through. The fight should be between MacVeagh and Chandler. "Afterwards Garfield explained that this course was the alternative for withdrawing Chandler's name outright, which course would have made things disagreeable. As MacVeagh relishes a tight, especially if it be, or seems to be, with the Piesident of the United Slates, the Secretary of Stale, or some other high personage, he was satisfied Every oue k ows how it came out. Chandler was beaten bj one vote—Don Cauierou's; a wheel withiu a wheel, not necessary to explain how. "Precisely how much Garfield cared for Chandler is not known. Blaine's conduct was inexplicable. Wtien Chandler consented to accept the *.oiicilorship he was assured tbs' lia need not trouble himself about his con firmation, thaï would he taken care of. But Garfield contracted wiLh MacVeagh to keep hands off, and Blaine never lifted a linger for Chandler, whose confirmation might at any moment have been secured, had Blaine chos en to say the word. I am not good authority as to Chandler's feelings now; but some of his New England friends ate not enthusiastic on Blaine. In tact, the seed lor a great deal of bard feeling was sown, and it is said to bave sprouted and to promise vigorous growth. "As quarrels are said frequently to make fast friendships, so it became with Garfield aud McVeigh. It was not long after ih.s that the attorney general began to crowd the seereiary of stat* hard at the White House. A* between Garfield and MacVeagh, the lat ter was by f ir the stronger wi lied and domi nated the President. Between Garfield and Blaine the feeling was at times such as bodes di ruption, although on the surface tlieie was not mueh evidence of it." From the Aaetic Ocean. Washington, Nov. 1!).— Lieut.
