With the ususl inconsistency of
our vanorable old grandmother of
tbe press, the Alta, after making
tha foregoing admissions, proceeds
to berate tbe Southern Democrats.
The logic of its position is
that It is wrong to begin a
thing; bot, having begun It, tbe
wrong must be given continuity

and determination In equal parts

No, It is not a small matter. The

matter indeed.
finna bis recsnt visit Col.
Charles Crocker, President of tbe
•eathern Pacific Railway, labored
Ie Impress neon onr business men
the advisability of retaining in tbis
sWotton tbe trade or Arixona aa to
Ml the aell products of Les Angeles
•Maty. Tbere oan be no doubt of
the willingness of tbe Boatbem
fkwtie te cordially co-operate with
t sw» tcoels la this endeavor. Wo
fcaee to recognise the faot that the
AtehfesM, Twpeka and Santo Fe
Ij alter tbla state of tne foots. On
the other band, we have the ad
vantage that Arizona It settled
principally by Callfornlans, wbo
sympathize with the State from
whioh they ball, and who desire,
all otber things being equal, to
trade with the merchants and pro
ducers of tha Golden State. We
have no hesitation In expressing
our belief tbat tbe Southern Pacific
Railway will champion the pro-
ducers of Us own section, and tbat
business conferences by our pro
ducers with the officers (f that
company will result in a thorough
entente cordial. As te through
freights, foe some time to come,
owing to tbe lack of a cordial un
derstanding between Ibe two com
panies, matters will be, ao to
speak, chaos. The general opinion,
and it Is a natural one, tbat two
reads whioh have been approach
ing each otber for years, when tbey
reached tbe point of junction,
would have a perfect agreement on
all points relating to freights and
fares, bas proved to be an error in
this instance. As a matter of faot,
aa respeots tbe former, no agree
ment baa yet been reached. As to
Arlsona at least Southern Califor
nia producers ought to bold the in
terior lines.
In tbe height of tbe indignation
at the Debris swindle, which ie
beyond all question tbe most
threatening and gigantio tingle
spoliation over undertaken in any
State of tbe American Union, It
should not be forgotten that ths
State Board of Engineers Is doing
an admirable routine work wblob
ought, by all means, to be contin
ued. The corps of Engineers,
headed by Mr. Schuyler, wbo were
engaged in surveying tbe streams
of Southern California, gauging
their surface waters and estimat
ing tbeir subterranean flow, and
oaatlng about for reservoir facili
ties, bave done a valuable and in
dispensable work. These gentlemen
are now "licking" into shape the
immense mass of materials col
lected by tbem, and getting ready
for tbe preparation of an elaborate
series of maps which will be of tbe
first importance In an intelligent
comprehension of the Irrigating
facilities of Southern California.
It would be au inexcusable mis
take—a gross blunder, indeed —to
attaob to the scientific labors of
these gentlemen any of the just
odium whioh adheres to tbe Debris
infamy. Tbe Just and legitimate
expenses of tbe Engineer's Depart
ment ought to be provided for by
the Legislature. We very muob
regret that this body was mixed
up in any wise witb the Debris
ghouls. It is a lamentable fact
that large portions of the Siora
mento valley are threatened witb
overflow. If bydraulie mining
were totally suspended to-morrow,
physical conditions already exist
which, within a space of twenty
years, will, In all likelihood, pile
sand up to ths first story windows
ef the State Capitol, and which
will compel Marysville and Sacra
mento to change tbeir sites.
Tbe debris foolery, lo the face
of these inexorable conditions
of nature, is like piecing a
straw to obstruct a mill stream,
like King Canute whipping the
waves or Mrs. Partington mopping
up tbe Atlantic ocean. Jobbery
and fatuity characterize the De
bris measures; but some good
work, whioh ought to be utilized
and perpetuated in practical shape,
has been done by the State Board
of Engineers. The Just and mod
erate appropriations needed to en
able tbat body to complete its good
work should be accorded by tbe
Draw Poker in Paris.
[Spirit of tbe Times.]
Io tbe spheres of higher Paris
gaming, draw poker has obtained
a foothold, though only within ths
last few months, and in these lat
ter circles it is treated in a manner
muoh more orthodox* tban among
tbo frolicsome artists and idlers of
Mon tmartre, It waa at one of these
ceremonious sittings, in a oosey
little club, not far from tbe Plaoe
de l'Opera, tbat tbo writer wit
nessed a band worthy to he con
signed to poker annals. There
were five players, the game admit
ting of a very high limit, and, on
a jack pot being opened, four of tbe
five players "went In." After due
drawing, tbe wagering ran high,
and It was evident that large
bands were out. Three or four
limits, bet in rapid succession,
drove out two of the players, who
parted respectively from three of a
kind and from a little full. Or the
otber two players, ons, ths opsner
or the pot, bad drawn to three
nines, and had obtained tbe feurtb;
be was, of course, determined not
to lay down suoh a collection
as tbis, and returned bis adversa
ry's shots wltb all the more confi
dence tbat tbo latter bad drawn
to four cards, and bs suspected him
of merely holding a flash. And a
flush was, sursly enough, the head
announoed by tbe drawer to four
when at last there was a call, to
wbieh tbo gentlemen of tbe four
nines negligently responded by tbe
mention "Qaartre nenfa ?" "Yes,
bat wait a moment," said bis ad
versary; "my flush Is a straight
one—and high." All negligence
oa tha otber side very suddenly
disappeared: the fonr nines wore
relinquished, and tbeir bolder, aat
gaslng at a remarkably pretty
tethering of aos, king, queen,
■eve and ton of club*. The for
tunate p oss—or of thla extraor
dinary hand had taken a shore In
a Jack pot, drawing for queen of
oleee, aad bad got it. After tbis

partment tbat tbe managers of the

lay a decision to tbe last degree'
possible. If tbey succssd in evad

alleged, they have withheld from

and MoPhsrson ottered as bis right

Waskinuton, April 6tb.—The
President end Secretary Blame are
annoytd by tbe continuance of tbe

and were disappointed at the. re- 1
suit of tbe last Bepublioan caucus.
Hale, Frye, Ingalls, Blair and
others hold similar vlsws and will
try to have another caucus to re
verse tho decision ot the last. It
is statsd tbat tbs President will
uss his power to break the dead
lock if it lasts much longer.
I Washinoton, April 6th.—The
positions taken by Senators Sher
man aad Bayard In their elaborate
speeches to-day have brought into
bold rslior the fact whioh bad pre
viously been less apparent, tbat
the present contest In tbe Senate is
praotieally a contest between the
two great political parties fer the
election of tbe next United States
Senator from Virginia. The peo
ple of tbat Stato will next fall
elect not only a Governor, Judges
of tho Oourt of Appeals and othsr
Stato officers, but also the Legisla
ture Which, In loot, ie to licet Sen
ator Johnston's cusosssor, to takt
his scat ia March, 1888. It U gen
etvJly bettered by beth'nejrtlehla
Sergeant-at-Arms, Involving an
extension in behalf of the Republi
can party of both material and
moral aid to the proposed coalition
of Re-adjustere and Republicans In
Virginia, would almost certainly
Insure the sucosss of the coalition
and result in tbs complete over
throw of tbe regular Democracy In
the old Dominion.
A rumor la afloat and credited
in some quarters, tbat If the dead
lock eontinueo much longer tbe
President will convene the Forty
seventh Congress in extra session.
Tbe report is probably intended to
frighten the Democrats into yield
ing the Senate patronage for fear of
losing tbe House patronage, wblob,
unless an extra session sbould be
oalled, tbey will continue to enjoy
until next December. It Is now
pretty definitely known tbat Presi
dent Garfield approves tbe stand
taken by the Republicans of tbe
Senate and tbis belief is etrongly
corroborated lately by the fact that
his closest friends In tbe Senate
bave opeuly advised the present
programme aud also by the Presi
dent's own utterances this morn

warmly in favor of the proposed
alliance of Virginia Republicans

IWusli. Letter ia Cleveland lierald ]
Happening to be In Virginia two
years ago thla coming summer, at
one of tbe reeorts overlooking the
beautiful valley of tbe Shenan
doah, I was treated to a near and
unprepossessing view of the great
''Re-adjuster," whose fame bas
gone iuto the groceries and bar
rooms of out-of-the-way Virginia
towns and crept into the flavorless,
aimless gossip of those summer
hives—"tbe Springs." People
were divided as to his merits as
statesman and politician, but be
had been true to the Confederacy,
bad fought her battles aud shared
tbe victories, short-lived, but none
tbe lees dear to every Southern
heart, and so the day of bis com
ing was an eventful one in the an
nals of our sleepy summer resort.
There were bands, banners and
visiting delegations of Virginians
to do honor to the man tben agi
tating Virginia politics, and when
he came aud was fairly set before
our eyes, where were all the pre
conceived notions of the mush
lauded bero ? Certaiuly it was not
tbe flue figure and commanding
presence of anybody's dreams that
we realized, but a little wlzensd
man, so thin and nervous that be
might bave bad an anatomy of
wire and steel springs worked by a
battery, instead of the bone, mus
cle, flesh and blood of the rest of
mankind. His pale, deeply-lined
face was surrounded by a shock of
gray balr and straggling beard,
and shrewdness and determination
looked cut of tbe small, brilliant
eyes. His dress was one that
would haw- damped bim as eccen
tric in any t liuunity. Ilia low
quartered shu.a were tied with
broad black velvet ribbon, a broad
flaring oollar falling over bis
shoulders looked like an attempt at
Juvenility, and his suit of light
gray fitted bis diminutive figure
like tbe badly, shrunken clothes of
a school-hoy. No one seeing bim
could have guessed tbat this was a
leader of men.
Away wltb your bulky heroes—
your avoirdupois estimate of great
men. Here is one who has never
weighed a hundred, and yet be has
battled with armies, been Presi
dent of a railroad and made a for
tune. Senator Mahone's early life
was that of many men who have
gone through privations and hard
ships to success—a series of strug
gles, In which, no doubt, some of
the inherited traits of his Irish
parentage came into play. He waa
born in Southampton oounty, Vir
ginia, in 1838. His parents were
very poor and his early education
very limited. For some years be
carried the mail on horsebaok, and
then mastered enough of tbe rudi
ments of learning to teach school.
Hie energy and ambition com
mended bim to tbe good graces of
a wealthy gentleman, wbo had
bim entered as a pupil In the Vir
ginia Military Institute, from
which he graduated witb distinc
tion. First and last bo seems to
bave had much to do with rail
roads. He was at ene time an en
gineer on the Orange and Alexan
dria road, and later was chief engi
neer of tbe Norfolk an 1 Peters
burg Railroad.
He distinguished himself as a
Confederate General in the war
and enjoyed the entire confidence
of Gen. Lee, with whom belaid
down bis arms at Appomattox, tbe
division which be commanded con
stituting about one-fourth of tbe
feroe which surrendered tbere.
At the close of the war
he turned bis shrewdness and
genius for management lo acoount
by manipulating the State's in
terest, amounting to about 56,
--000,000, In a certain railroad, and
negotiating a loan of $15,000,000 on
the consolidated lines from Nor
folk to Bristol, Term. As a consid
eration he received $25,000 a year
for five years as president of the
consolidation, and tben, at tbe ex
piration of his term ot office, re
signed, leaving tbe road, acoording
to the testimony of tbe English re
ceiver, involved, while he lost
nothing. Criticism and censure
followed tbo retiring president, and
while tbere are many wbo believe
his administration of Its affairs to
have been a steady and consistent
feathering of bis own nest, tbere
are still many who believe in his
He Is desorlbed as a very mo
thodlcal, industrious man, studious
and exaotlng in bis requirements
of others, but affable and sociable
In manner, and hospitable in tbe
true Virginia style. He haa a fine
reeldence in Petersburg, Virginia,
wbere bis family rssldes. Ho bas
two sons and a daughter old
enough to take their plaoes in sool
ety at the capital, and bis wife, a
very aocompllsbed woman, who ia
the exaot contrast to ber diminu
tive husband physically, wsighlng
over 200 pounds, waa tbe daughter
of Mr. Butler, formerly treasurer
ef Virginia, and a beauty In bar
day. Senator Mabono is by all
odds tbe most sooentrlo and notice
able man In the Senate, and, next
to Alexander Stephens, the small
est man who bas ever boon In Con-.
Sress. His bight Is about five feet
to loobcs.
On a postcard on view at an ex
hibition in Goraaany there had
been written In a Gorman system
of shorthand tho largo nambor of
shorthand magazine, offered prices
for miniature sborthtnd. Ths sys
tem was to be Pitman's, the writ
ing to be legible to tho naked eye,
nod to be on ons side of an Eng
lish postcard, whioh is considera
bly smaller tban a German oard;
26,000 words on tbs former being
reckoned equivalent to 83,000 on
tbo latter. Tbo first prise In this
competition was awarded to G. H.
Davidson, whose postoard con
tained 32,868 words, Including tbe
whole of Goldsmith's "Sbe Stoops
to Conquer," an essay on John
Morley, and half of Holcrofi's
"Road to Ruin."
Tbe Viennese are nearly as much
addicted to gambling in tbe public
lotteries as the population further
south, and as tbe death of an ec
clesiastical dlguitary is supposed
to bays a mysterious conneotlon
with tbe ohanoesof the lottery, a
rush was made on tbe ticket offices
during tbe two days following the
death of the Cardinal Archbishop.
The favorite numbers were 10, tbe
year of his birtb; 81, tbe year of
blsdsatb; and 71, tbs years of bis
age. There was scarcely a combi
nation hazarded without at least
one of these numbers. Next to
these in favor came those indicat
ing the day, bour and minute of
his death. Fortune on this occa
sion, however, did not favor tbe
superstitious. None of tbe above
wero drawn, but after the drawing
it was observed that 4, one of tbe
numbers tbat came out, represent-i
ed tbe ysars of his arch bishoprics.
Tbe custodianship of Queen Vic
toria's gold pantry at Windsor
Castle, just rendered vacant by tbe
death of Mr. Goring, Is an offloe of
great trust, ac may be inferred
from tbe fact tbat when the Queen
entertained tbe Emperor of Rus
sia, shortly after tbe marriage of
tbe Duke and Duchess of Edin*
eurgb, gold plate to tbe value of
some $10,000,000 is said to bave
been used. At a rougb guess, the
royal gold and silver services at
Windsor Palaoe are probably worth
about $16,000,000.
