Mr. Stanford* View" an the En forcement of a Section. [Crowded out of yesterday's issue.J Sam FaakoMOO, April 9.—The AUa this morning publishes nn interview with Leland Stanford, President of the Southern Pauitio oompany, regarding the eft'eot of the enforcement of .Section 4 of the Interstate Commerce law on the commerce of San Francisco. He said: "Tho literal enforcement of the fourili section of the luterstate Commerce law would be simply ruinous and destruct ive of our commerce, not only with China and Japan, but with Australiu aud all other cotintriis whose trade nat urally comes to us by way ol the Pacific ocean. Yuu see, through freight busi ness is but a small proportion, probably not more thai fifteen per cent, of our whole carrying trade it is upon oor looal business we depend for protit. This may be said of all roads, and will be true of every road that reaches the Pacific Coast. Brought as we are by our location into competition with the great water ways of the ocean we cannot make a rate where tbe means of transportation by water and by rail are co-existi: g. The water way which is naturally the cheapest means of trans portation will always make the rate and the railroads most follow or forego bus iness. Now onr agents in China and Japan are brought face to face with competitive rates by way of the Suez Canal by water and rail across the Isthmus of Panama and by all water around Capo Horn. Hitherto, wo have tried to meet tha. competition by giving rates which if not as low as those by water, were, when combined with the added advantages of speed, sufficient to secure a largo proportion of tbe business. Those rates of themselves would not be renumerative; that is to say, if our whole carrying business was conducted ou the same basts it would not pay the operating expenses of the road and the iuterest on the investment; but, as we are compelled to keep our track and rolling stock and operate our road any way, through business, eveu at those 1 >w ratee, contributes toward paying the expanses of the road, and to that extent operates iv a measure to enable us to. muke lower rates ou local business thai might otherwise be possible. Now, however, we are brought face to face with this proposition. If the law is to bo literal y enforced, aud we cannot mnke a special rate for all this through business, we shall be compelled to choose between looal and through business, and in that event natuially we will have to forego the through business." Evansville, Ino., April 10.—John T. Raymond, the celebrated actor, died bore at a quarter after one o'olock this morning. He arrived here from the south Friday afternoon, quite ill with intestinal disorders complicated with heart troubles. About midnight last night be commenced failing rapidly and became unconscious.

Galveston, Tex., April 10.—The past week bus been one of expectancy and disappointment to the people of Texas, uo rain of any conspfjueuce having fallen throughout tho immense area now suffer ing from drouth. Dispatches and letters to tho Galvislon News; Ihe San Antonio Express and other papers of tbo Stale continue to detail tho widespread aud threatening character of the drouth which has perceptibly incr ased since the last report. The drouth now ex tends from the far western grazing lands across tbe State, for a distance of 800 m les, into the pine regions bordering Louisiana, but decreases iv seveiity is it approaches the pines, from which section the complaints are of recent date. Tho general tains whic i usually set in at the full of the moon are wanting, and tho cool, elry winds of the past fortnight continue to prevail, except in the district Immedi ately southwest oi San Antonio, em bracing Medina, Bandera, Uvalde, Frio and Atascosa counties, where moderate rains fell yesterday, though not euongh, as the dispatches from that viciuity suy. I'his is oue of tbe grazing sectio's of the state where stock whs dying. Between San Antonio and the coast, embracing such fertile counties us Guadaloupe.G m sak», Lavaca, Colorado, C ildwell, Bas trop and a dozen others, the drouth bas assumed a serious aspect, putting un embargo upon all agricultural dt v.lopment, especially cotton, the chitf produce of this section. One corres pondent describes the roadways- through out the belt as covered to the depth of several inches with dust. Fields are barren even of weeds, while strings i f cattle, almost too poor to stand up, ore traveling constantly in senrch of grass aud water. In central Texas embracing about thitty cmutics.surrounding Waco, Corsicana and Burnet, the situation is scarcely less promising, all reports agree ing t hut nothing but very early and plen itul rains will avert serious damage or •he failure of crops. In northern and north Western Texas tbe drouth is not as se verely felt as in other sections, but com plaints ore increasing daily. A slight .sprinkle of rain fell duriug the week in Mitchell county, along the line of the Texas and Pacilic road, but no report of rainfall iv the great Panhandle district bas yet been reoeived. Tho result of the drouth is notable by the the scarcity of early vegetables. At the principal points the anxiety over tho situation is becoming greater every day. Whole sale houses here are calling their drum mers off the road, ns country merchants refuse to buy, pending the uncertainty of the crop outlook. THE PVCIFIt! it.tli.itl> VMS.

It was a cottage of one story and basement, and the upper part was boarded in but the basement bad been left m.finished. It was iv the un finished part that the wind ob tained its purchase power and as the cottage was built on the side of a hill tbe pressure obtained was greater than was the oase on level ground. There were two families in tbe upper part of the cottage, Mrs. Gallup and son and J. T. Williams, wife and five children, aud it was almost a miracle that they es caped unhurt. Mrs. Gallup and son had just seated themselves at the dinner-table when they felt the home tremble vio lently, and they lost no time in making a hasty exit.

FUTURE PUNISHMENT. Bcv. I*. \V. Dor>ev<« Ideas Itel ailve 'J'nereto. The decorations ol" the First Baptist Church were amoDg the meat beautiful in the city, aud tbe ladies must have devoted considerable time to arranging the flowers. Ou the wall above the or gan loft was a huge cross of calla lilies with a grounds oik of green leaves, li low was the organ, on lop of wbich was a bank of orange blossoms. Tho rati rurrouiniing tbe organ loft was trim med with lilies ou acrimsou background. Surmounting tho i ulpil was a delicate basket of white fljwers, aud ou the front was a stur and cresoeut. On eitber fide were calla lilies and on both sides of the platform were huge vasts of lilies over wi.ich hung baskets of brilliant blooms. Tbe edge of the platform was relieved by a border of lilies, und on tbo table inside the chancel rail was a basket of white blossoms. The en he effect was most pleusing in its charauter. In the evening the Rev. P. VV. Dorsey delivered a sermon taking "But is guilty of an eternal sin," as his text, tie argued that, taking this saying.than which no better could b« found, to illus trate his position, il was evident tbat there are some who will suffer eternal punishment, some of whom never can be forgiven. The idea that future pun ishment is to be physical bad exploded long since and tho suffering for wrong doing in the wirld to oome cat.not be compared with bodily pain. Physical suffering was, Becoming to his idea, tbo very least, the very lowest kind or de gree of Buffering, and the human lan guage was too poor in sentiment to allow the proper description of future punish ment. The suffering for evil and wrong doing in the other 1 fe has to be borne by the soul, and is infinitely greaterthaa we can imagine. Those wtio will suffer throughout eternity are those who bute what Ood loves, aud love what he hates; who persist is turning Ood's love to hate, and wh< revile the good tbat exists. Our con science tells us tbat we will be punishei for our sins. There is no perse n bo feels that those who commit a erim should be punished; bit bow true it I that suffering or punishment bas o power to purify them. Phys : cal pain never reforms a crimiual, ana there is n reforming power in punishment. i man may stay in prison for years ant when he comes ont be h not reformat 80 it is with those who persist in sit There are some, rays the B ble.who wj suffer eternal punishment.
