They will be paid for with stock of the Northern Rail road, which in turn will be reimbursed in stock of the Southern Pacific. It is to me a new outlay that the man agement of the road has decided to make this new issue." "Does the Southern Pacific contemplate buying any railroads in Mexico;" was asked. "It does not. We are not prepared just yet to give any details of our new purchases in Califor nia, but we will be very shortly. Mean while, this much is certain, the new issue of stock is for this purpose alone."

San Francisco, March 28. — Chief Crowley has issued an order to the police on duty in Chinatown, in which he says: "Experience has taught us that the Chi nese in Chinatown have no respect for law or order.

Said to be t.ettlng a Strong- Hold Upon Many Women of America. If one-half of what the doctors are say ing all over the country is true, there may soon be a greater need of a temper ance reform among the women than there ever has been among the men. Strong drink, however, is not the monster by which the women may be enslaved, but a strong and poisonous drug equally baneful in its effects. This drug is antipyrine. The chemical name for it is "dimethyloxyquimzini," but as it is rather long and might not be easily pronounced by ladies who are not orthographical exports, it has been called simple antipyrine, and appears as such in the medical books. It is a white powder, slightly bitter, and soluble in water. Until about a year ago it wag prescribed for fever only, but a French medical college recom mended it for headaches and other pains and disorders, and in this way it has gained its grip on so many thoughtless and nervous Women. In Chicago and many other places it is said that the habit is gaining with alarm ing rapidity, for the women take it for every ill, and cannot believe that its soothing effect can have any evil repult until the habit is thoroughly fixed upon them. It produces different results under dif ferent circumstances, and, like many other preparations, varies according to the size of the dose. In large doses it has been known to produce complete re laxation and at the same time a loss of reflex action and death. In moderate or tonic doses it often produces convulsions. Its effect as a stimulant seems to be very ! much like that of quinine, and the phy sicians say that they do not understand why it should get the hold on women that it does.—[Buffalo Courier. A FOUL GRAVEYARD. Bodies Buried Only a Foot Under the Surface. A DISEASE-BREKDING CEMETERY. Reports that Stray I)oi?s Disinterred and Devoured the Bodies o% the Dead. 'Associated Press Dispatches to the Hkbald.l Camden, N. J., March 28.—The Special Committee of the Camden Board of Health, appointed to investigate the con dition of Butler's burial ground for col ored people, in the rear of the Evergreen Cemetery, developed the fact that the State sanitary and burial laws have been grossly violated, and that serious results might follow during the coming hot weather, and that an epidemic of death dealing disease might result from the surface interments. Thirty-five tests were made as to what depth the bodies had been buried. The iron struck the coffins eighteen inches below the surface and in several cases the bodies were only one foot down. It was also said by the commit tee that when they dug up several graves, bones were turned up and the feet of persons were plainly visible. Alto gether, it is said, few bodies are buried as deep as three feet, and the stench of decomposing flesh makes the place a nuisance and breeds disease. Dempsey Butler, owner of the ground, is said to bo worth $00,0C0 and is a mag nate among the colored people. He said to-night: "I know nothing about the ghastly rumors of dogs going into the graveyard and eating human bones. Dogs might have been seen there, but no complaint has been made to my knowl edge. Bodies have been buried without my knowledge and without permits, but what they wore I cannot say." The Inspector of the Board of Health says no permits of burial had been granted for this cemetery for months, yet it is claimed that there have been burials in tbe interval. Probably the State prosecution will await the action of the Board of Freeholders. Commissions on I'asatenger Tickets. Chicago, March 28.—General McNulta, Receiver of the Wabash Railway, has sent a telegram to Judge Cooley, Chair man of tne Inter-State Commerce Com mission, urging an early ruling as to the legality of paying commissions on the sale of passenger tickets.

As a result of the telegram, Judge Cooley this afternoon wired Chairman Abbott, of the Western States Passenger Associa tion, as follows: "What Chicago roads, if any, still pay commissions on passen ger traffic? If any, see if it is necessary to summon them here fn order to Btop it." A meeting will probably be called in a day or two to consider the question. Lynched by the Redskins. St. Paul, March 28.—A Pioneer Press special from Springview, Neb., says: Mrs. Gannon, wife of a settler living near the Dakota line, was in this town yester day asking for help in rescuing her hus band from the Dakota Indians.
