A Southerner Speaks his Mind About Northern Democrats. WASm1GTON, December 9.-The most eventful speech of the House to-day was that of Lapham, who in the course of his speech said that the Democratic party was too prone to look leniently on political crimes. The leaders who were responsible for that bliitering infamy and colossal fraud-the Morey forgery, were enjoying high places in Democratic opinion, the men who tried to steal the State of Maine were still their trust ed leaders, and in New York they elect a man to the State Senate by 11,000 majority after his crimes bad become so infamous that he never dared appear and claim his seat, referring to 'lweed in 1868. ---4.-€.B-,-o-·-------. Canadian Pacific Railroad. OTTAWA, (Ont.) December 9.-This after noon the Governor General delivered a speech from the throne, of which the following is an extract: The contract and papers con nected with the Canadian Pacific railroad will be submitted to you without delay, and I envoke for them your early and earnest con sideration. I have summoned you before the usual period, as no action can be taken by contractors to prosecute the work, and no permanent arrangement for the organization of systematic emigration from Europe to the Nofthwest Territory can be satisfactorily made until the policy of Parliment with re spect to the railroad has been decided. Steady progress will be made in the con struction of those portions of the railroad now under contract. Two additional sec tions have recently been opened for traffic one from Winnepeg to Portage and La Prarie, and the other from Cross Lake to Keewatin-so that there are now in all 264 miles in operation. The measures adopted to promote economy in the working of the Inter-Colonial and Prince Edward Island railroads have resulted very favorably, and the steadily increasing trafic warrantd the ex pectation that during the present year these railroad will become alf-sustaining. Democrat ' Ticket. NEw YORK, Decempber 9.-The Herald'a Washington;A special .says: Some leading Democrats in the Hou~ e have conceived the idea of capturing the organization of the next House by making an alliance with the Green backers and supporting . the Greenbacker Ladd of Maine, for the Speakership. This scheme, with the electoral count bill and the attempt to unseat Kellogg, are .three blunders cropping out in the first three days of the session, any one of which ought to send the perpetrator to the rear in-disgrace as a per son not fit to be trusted with a voice in party councils. NOTES OF NEWS, Domestic. Blatne being interviewed on the subject of his takeing a place on Garfields cabinet said: "The first and only timne I ever saw that re port was in the 'rib e, and I have never heard of the offer from any other source. For the first time since the war the South ern States will participate in the inauguration festivities. There is every probability that it will be a grand occasion. Senator Pendleton introduced a joint res olution which, in order to facilitate the settle ment and develope the resources of Alaska, proposes to request the President th adopt such action as he may deem proper to insti tute negotiations with: the Governments of Great Britain and Canaida to obtain the.rivi lege of opening a road and highway from the boundary line of the FInited States, through British Columbia, to Fort W rangel and Sitka. The joint resolution was referred to the Coin mitee on foreign relations. Whether the House Military Committee will report favorably on McCook's bill to place Graut on the retired list with the pay of a General in the Army, is very doubtful. The indications are that all the Democrats on the Committee will oppose it, in which case it will never be reported ; but this is not posi tive, as members are not at all communicative on the subject, and will not be until they have discussed it among themrselves. Stanley Mathews will succeed Justice Swayne on the Supreme Court Bench, and Judge Devens .:may have a place if he will take it. The grand jury of he Federal Court has in dicted three election judge at Manchester, Vs.'for refusing to take votes because they alleged that the capitation tax was illegally issued fronm the State Auditor's office. The Governor and Secretary of State fail ing to agree upon the'election of a represen tative from Bradley county Tennessee the for mer claiming that a Deocratis elected and the latter placing a Reppdlican, the case is to be edcided by' ;the Legislature itself. The Dem ocrats still have three majority on jointballot During the performance at Pike's Opera House Cincinnati, of the play enititled "OCde Hunared Wives," a well-dressed gentlemun arose in the audience, and in a loud voice protested against the further progress of the play on account of its attacks on the Mormon religion. He was deeply in earnest, and be came so violent as to attrapt the attention of the whole house, and Manager Ballenberg was obliged to eject him. He appeared to be sober and in his right mind. He said he was an Englishman and was stopping for a time in this city. Judge Drummond, of The U. S. Court, has decided that the tax levied by the city on the street car companies of Chicago, of $50 per car per year, in valid. This will put $140, 000 annually into the city treasury. Payne, with 400 colonists, expects to make an all-night march on the Cherokee trip. Lt. Mason and company of 4th Cavalry are fol lowing closely on the invaders. A number of Jesuits, expelled from France lately, haye arrived in Montreal, and taken up their quarters temporarily with their breth ren in that city. The seminary of St. Sulpice has provided eight hundred acres of land for these exiles at Oka, and they will go into farming there next Spring. The Staliion "Blue gown." which was shipped on the steamer Victoria, November 13, died November 25, from exhaustion pro duced by the tossing of the ship. Bluegown was an English thoroughbred, famous as the winner of the "Derby" some years ago. He had been recently purchased by James R. Keene for the sum of $20,000. The animal was slung and put in a padded stall; the pitching of the ship, however, frightened him he sprang about and fretted continually until he adied, although he received no apparent in juries. The First Baptist Church o0 Montana. The Baptists of Helena and vicinity have recently been organized into a church, body politic, under the supervision of the Rev. J. T. Mason, missionary in charge of the de nominational interests in Montana, and intend soon to build a church on the west side of town. They start with about a score of names as constituent members, and are pro mised substantial help from the Board of Missions in their efforts to establish a church. The organization takes for its name "The First, Baptist Church of Montana." LAND OFFICE RULING. Important Deeslon in Regard to Hates for the Advertising. of Patents. We have received the following circular from Register J. H. Moe, of the Helena Land Office, for publication: DEPARTMENT OF THE INTERIOR,) General Land Office, WASHINGTON, Nov. 22, 1880.) Registers and Receivers, United States Dis trict Land Ofice : GENTLEMEN :-It has been represented to me by the publishers of newspapers and numerous other persons interested, that the rate of compensation prescribed by me and promulgated in official circular of April 19, 1880, for the publication of notices of inten tion to apply for patent to mining claims is inequitable and in many instances inadequate. Since the promulgation of the former cir cular additional facts have been brought to my attention, and I am led to believe that a more just and satisfactory rule would be to make the price charged for the publication.of such notices depend upon the space which they occupy in the columns of the newspa pers designated by the registers. For the reason stated I have concluded to modify the former circular in this respect, and direct that hereafter the maximum char ges for such notices shall not exceed $5 for each ten lines - of space occupied where a weekly newspaper is designated as the me dium of publication, and $7 where a daily newspaper is designated, said sums to be in full payment for publication in each issue of the newspaper designated for the entire period required by law. It should beborne in mind that, these no tices must not be so abbreviated as to curtail the description essential to a perfect notiee, and the said rates are established upon the understanding that they are to be in the usual body type as nonpareil. For the publication of citations in contests or hearings involving the character of lands the charges shall not exceed $8 for five publi cations in weekly newspapers or $10 for pub lication in daily newspapers for 30 days. You will give due notice hereof to all-per sons interested. Very respectfully, J. A. WrAuWMsoN, Commissioner. Terrible Accident. The following, from the TM1adisonian, will interest many of the old time friends of Mr. Hathaway: On Wednesday afternoon, the community was deeply shocked by the news that H H. Hathaway, one of the, partners in the High .land Fluming and Mining Company, opera ting in Alder gulch; about three miles above Virginia City, had met his death suddenly by -being precipitated down as embankment 6n the Virginia City and: summit road. He .was hauling some goods, and a safe, and it is. thoughL that the deceased, who h~d been walking behind the load, attempted to get on the sleigh, and, in so doing pulled over the goods, which were loaded "top-heavy" and they were all--Hathaway, Jones and the goods-thrown over the embankment togeth er. Mr. Jones was unhurt by the fall, and as soon as he could get up, went tolassistance of his companion, who was under the safe; but was horrified to find, upon removing it, that he was quite dead. In the fall one of the de ceased's legs was broken, and the top of his skull completely mashed in. Death must have been instantaneous. Mr. Hathaway was an old resident of Montana, having come to the country with the early settlers in 1863. He was highly respected for his sterling integrity and estimable qualtities as a cititzen. He was 50 years of age. Quiet .Force. Men who are "born leaders" do not make any unnecessary noise in the world. They have no occasion to exact obedience from subordinates, for no one ever thinks of diso beying them ; while those who do not possess the faculty only display their weakness in their efforts to appear important and impres sive. The story is told of a man who had a large number of pigs in a pen near his house, and made it a practice to go out every even ing and "stir them up" with a club, to the great annoyance of the pigs and the distur bance of the neighbors. When asked his reason for this absurd and useless conduct, he answered that he wanted them to know he was boss. There are too many men in every' community whose idea of executive abilty is exactly on par with this. They bluster and splurge and "stir things up" generally, con vinced that such foolish parade of authority will convince those unfortunate enough to be under them: "that they are boss," whereas the fact is that it serves to convince all that they are fools. And the time comes at length when those who are over them find it out, and they are dropped. The quiet way is the best, after all. A Hint to Grumblers. "what a noisy world this is !" croaked an old frog, as he squatted on the margin of the pond. "Do you hear those geese, how they scream and hiss. What do they do it for ?" "O, just to amuse themselves," answered a little field mouse. "Presently we shall have the owls hooting. What is that for ?" "It's the music tey' like best," said the mouse. "And those grasshoppers; they can't go home without grinding and chirping; why do they do that ?" "0, they are so happy they can't help it," said the mouse. "You find excuses for all. I believe you ' don't understand music, you so like the hid eous noises." "'Well, my friend, to be honest with you," said the mouse, "I don't greatly admire any of them; but they are all sweet in my ears compared with the constant croaking of a frog." The sensitive Woman. You all know her. She seems to think herself entitled to universal pity and con sideration. No rules apply to her. She is sensitive and easily wounded, and must not be dealt harshly with. She is perpetually lugging sentiment into business. If her creditors are obdurate, and want their money at a given time, she asks them piteously how they would like tohave their sisters' treated as they treat her, and clearly considers her self the victim of man's cruelty. She is al ways ready to ''choke up." Her heart lies near her throat, and one can hardly say a iword which she will not consider as a "slap" at herself and which she will not resent. No general remark can be made which will not cause her to "choke up" and grow red in the :face with supprsed rage at the supposed in sult. A turkey gobbler can scarcely equal her in the art ofchanging color and "chok .ing up." Nothing pleases her, and she will. become angry at your slightest utterance. One of thiskind on a steambbat said, "Sir, were you making faces at me?" : The gentle man began, :"Madam--." "Don't madam me," she said, "for I am an honest woman!" "An Enoeh Arden.
