What easier way of.raakit.g money
could the bond syndicate desire
than it now enjoys through the
favor, whether donated or purchas
ed, of the administration < The
bond deal itself netted the Shy
locks more than $12,000 in profits.
Then the bogus pretense of pros
perity trumped up by the eastern
press to protect the treasury gold
reserve until Oct. 1st enabled them
to market about $100,000,000 of
American securities abroad. This
forced prices up on Wall street and
enabled the Shylocks to sell short
to an unlimited extent. When
they had the market properly rig
ged for a tumble that would give
ihem more millions, nothing was
easier or more natural than for
them to withdraw their protection
from the gold reserve and to aid in
forcing it bel.. w the $100,000,000
in order to cause a panicky feeling
that would depress all stocks and
bonds. That the conspiracy work
ed svell is clearly proved by the
heavy fall that has taken place in
the entire list of securities dealt in
on Wal! street last week, and ap
parently the end is not yet. We
know that iu New York it would
V considered almost treasonable
for a newspaper to suggest that
such en inent'.y respectable, be
cause wealthy, speculators as the
VJjrgans and Belmonts and the big
Wankers associated along with
them in the syndicate wou'd bunco
he government and the public too
iu order to make more money, but
we do net live in the shadow of any
•ombine and are not afraid to call
things by their right names. .When
the whole story of the bond syndi
cate is written it will be apparent
to all men that the latest bond
deal whereby President Clevelaud,
Secretary Carlisle and the late
partner Stetson turned the credit
of the government over to a hand
ful of native and foreign Shylocks
to their pecuniary adrantago and
the shame of the American people,
was the most colossal skin game
ever practiced in this country at
least, and we have no doubt that if
the whole truth can be obtained
that some big officials were and are
silent though very efficient partners
in tho plunder gathered by the
syndicate.—Denver Republican.
Secretary Smith has directed
the commissioners of the general
land office to continue the adjust
ment of the land grant of the St.
Paul, Minneapolis and Manitoba
railway, now the G-eat Northern
in accordance with a decision of
Secretary Noble in 1891. The de
cision of Secretary Noble has never
been reversed but the adjustment
was suspended pending the action
of the United States courts. The
land to the Monitoba company was
made iu two différents grants, one
in 1867, known as the main land
grant, and another in 1866 for
what was known as the St. Vincent
extension. By reason of the Nor
thern Pacific grant of 1864 the St.
Vincent branch lost a large amount
of the land on each side of the line
crossing the Northern Pacilic
grant, Another grant was made
to the Manitoba company in 1871
and there were losses by reason of
the land being absorbed. The
company was entitled to indemnity
if lands could be found in Minneso
ta. Along the main line theie
was about 200,000 acres that was
not needed to satisfy losses, but
the interior department held that
grants were separate and must be
adjusted separately. The case was
tried and the adjustment suspei.d
ed pending decision. The court of
appeals having sustained the de
partment the secretary directs the
adjustn ent to continue. A por
tion of the 200,000 acres will be
come 1 he property of the old Hast
iugs and Dakota grant and
lauds will be restored to the public
domain.

The Texas legislature passed an
anti-prize fighting bill last week
in its extra session. When cham
pion Jas. J. Cordctt was shown the
dispatch he said they were under
contract with Dan Stuart and the
Florida Athletic club and they pro
pose toiliveto their part of the
contract. He says tVat he is anx
ious to fight and will go any who: e
to do it provided the purse is all
right. Manager Brady savs the
next move will be to try Laredo,
but one thing ia certain we are not
going into Mexico uuicaj we have
an iron clad guarantee that we will
not be disturbed. A large number
of propositions w.re received over
the wires by Dau Stuart from par
ties who desire to have the fight
pulled off in their respective cities
or states. A number came from
Mexico and others from Indian Ter
ritory and Oklahoma. It is under
stood that Joseph Vendig and other
interested parties have conferred
and agreed upon a plac-s for the
meeting and line of action.

Mutton Lambs.
Regarding the kind of lambs to
raise for mutton Professor Henry
Stewart says in the American Ag
riculturist:
The fattest lambs are a cross
of Merino with Southdown. They
are not the largest, but the plump
est and hoaviest for their size, of
all early lambs and the black faces
anb legs of the sire render .them
dear t3 the heart of the butcher,
who will readily give more for such
lambs than for larger white faced
ones. He points to these black
marks with pride and calls the
special attention of customers 1o
them as proof of their southdown
lineage. They rre the.ifinest mut
ton sheep in the world, he tells his
exacting costcmers. Tho merino,
however, has someth'ng to do with
the fatness and tenderness of these
lambs, and its early fleece gives
the appearance of fullness and
plumpness to the round little car,
cass.
Those lamb breeders who keep
the Dorsets for their twin lambs,
which come quite early, will do well
to use the southdown for the sires
of the lambs. This is* the rule in
England, where the dorsets are
kept especially for Christmas
lambs. There the ewes of this
breed lamb twice a year, and one is
a cross of the Southdown and the
other is pure bred; the former for
the market and the latter for the
flock. The dorset, however, must
have th<> most skillful attention
and the shepherd who thinks sheep
can take care of themselvas through
the winter as well us summer will
be very much disappointed if he
tries the dorset to experiment with
in this direction. Tho Christmas
lamb is like the Christmas straw
berry, a hothouse production and
those breeders who do not under
stand this method of forcing the
lambs will do well to get lambs
later and at less cost and yet make
quite a-i much profit out of them.
It is quite possible to average
eight to ten dollars for a lamb in
Mar k cr Apri , or even in May,
and this with the merino south
down cross.
Many sheep breeders are asking!
if the rambouillet meriuo yields
good mutton. It does, and has for
many years and there is no reason
why it should not. Merino mutton
lias been objected to on account of
the alleged wolly taste in the flesh.
This is liable to happen to ail kinds
of mutton and may be due to sev
eral causes.. It is not the taste of
the wool at all but of the sheep.
The auimai, allied to the goat, has
a somewhat strong odor which is
quite perceptable in a close, unveti
tilated usheep pen and is thus
thought to be the odor of the wjol,
but on the contrary the odor of the
wool comes from the sheep. If in
dressing the carcass the opening
and airing of it is delayed and it is
cooled too rapidly so as to confine
the odor and the gases from the in
testines are permitted to penetrate
the meat, this will have the slieepy
flavor, but it is not the taste of the
wool at all. Doubtless the very
some'oily merino may have
natural odor than the less grersy
j mutton breeds, so called, but if it
is well dressed th
I sweet
stronger
