I When it is announced that a gang of robbers has just been captured in . Chicago, in whoso don wore found thousands of cigarettes, the rest Is understood. It is bad enough to smoke cigarettes, but men who will steal them must have struck the lowest depths of depravity. A new desecration of the landscape English people aro pro testing is the posting of advertise ments upon the sails of fishing boats. One writes, “Wo have a great trouble with a largo board advertisement of pills stuck up right in the middle of a beautiful buy.” This old notion that the Chinese aro cowardly has been utterly exploded by Europeau eyewitnesses of their con duct during the Tapping rebellion. The Romans themselves were not more susceptible of discipline, and followers of the ourly Caliphs were not more absolutely indifferent to death. Senator Stanford says ho came near being a newspaper man. He was appointed editor of a weekly journal iu the East, but the proprietors failed in their arrangements to get the con cern started, so he remained in the west. In a financial point of view the senator with his 100 million dollars, is perhaps as well off as if had got his weekly publication under way. Did you ever think of how much •pace the people who die every year require for deceut burial? If one could be content with a grave 2 by 6 feet, 3,630 bodies could be interred in one acre of ground, allowing nothing for walls, monuments, roads, etc. On this crowded plan London's annual dead, numbering about 81,000. would fill a cemetery of about twenty-three acres. A railway is to be built from Acca, on the Mediterranean sea, through a part of Syria to Damascus. The road will be about 115 miles in length, will skirt the shore of L ike Tiberius und run along the banks of the rivor Jor and. The novelty of a trip through the Holy Land on the back of a burro, of being levied on for backsheesh every time the quadruped brayed for water, will disappear with the intro duction of the locomotive. It is good American human nature to ask for what you want, and tho man who want 3 to bo mayor or gov ernor or president is as much justified in seeking the office he desires and in using all legitimate me.'ins to secure the object of his ambition as he would be if he were trying to get a placo as brakeman or porter. The men who cant the most about the evils of office seeking are often office seekers them selves, but hypocrisy, not office seek ing, is their fault. Lord Wolsely’s suggestion that tho civilization of western Europe may one day be overthrown by a Chinese invasion has been discussed by hun dreds of newspapers, and it is observ able that his views meet with favor in proportion to the historical compet ence of the commentntorA At present, It* doubt, the prospect of an irresisti ble irruption from the east seems re mote enough; but so it did at the be ginning of our era to the inhabitants of the Roman world, and, as a matter of fact, tho event did not take place until about four centuries afterward. The vast flood of foreigners which pours ceaselessly iuto this country, and its equal participation in tho govern ment after every inadequate prepara tion for the duties and responsibilities of citizenship, is one of the most pressing and difficult of our public problems. In some American cities the proportion of voters who do not know our language, to whom our his tory and traditions are absolutely un known, who have no conception of political duty or responsibility, and no care for them or interest in them, is enormous. It is, as a rule, a mass of the most ignorant citizenship. Time was when woman's sympathy of heart ran away with her judgment, and indiscriminating charity defeated Its purpose. Rut the woman who felt so much that she practically did noth ing belongs to the past. It is for the woman of to-day to avoid the opposite extreme, that of doing so much that she feels nothing. To what extent a huppy medium is being reached, wit ness the women on hospital and charity boards. conducting vast mission schemes, controlling institutions for relief of every sort; thinking, planning, executing for the good of the ignorant, the wretched, and the wicked, side by side and hand in hand with men. One of tho most note worthy expedi tions that ever entered Africa is the column of 500 men or more, with sixty wagons, that the British South Africa company has just sent to the heart of Mashocaland. a lofty region between the Limpopo and Zambesi rivers. This country is really a new discovery, for though Mauch travelled through a part of it in 1869. finding many evi dences of gold, and though Kerr cross ed it in 1884, it did not really begin to attract attention until Selous came home two years ago and reported that the country could suDport many thou sands of White people in health and comfort, and that it was probably des> tlnied to becomj the greatest gold JH too of South Africa. ' 1 STATE NEWS. The Aspen mines are suffering ’or lack of cars to transport tbeir output of ora An attempt was mad.? to wreck a train in tbo Pueblo yard Monday by mis placing a switch, but tbo results were not serious. Gold is reported to have been found at Happy Hollow, about twenty-five miles from Loveland, and prospectors are going to the new Held. McDermott and West, two accom plished safe blowers were arrested in Den ver the other night after having robbed the Denver Browing Company of a large sum. A convict was brought to Colorado Springs the other day to testify against a man for robbery, but bo positively de clined to testify, as he said the prisoners at Canon would refuse to associate with him if he did. The case was dismissed as a consequence. The junction railroad between Glen wood Springs uud Grand Junction was completed on the 14th. The work of mak ing the Rio Grande track broad guage was also completed at that time, and the Rio Grande and Midland, as well, will now run through trains to Salt Luka Christopher Wilson. ex-county treasurer of Ppeblo county, and now cash ier of the Pueblo Savings bunk, has been appointed deputy state treasurer under Treasurer-elect Carlile. Mr. Wilson is an experienced accountant und financier, and well qualified iu every way for the posi tion. While services were being held in the First Methodist Episcopal church at Pueblo last Sunday morning, thieves broke into the i>arsouage, entering byway of the cellar. A gold watch, silk dress and other articles, amounting in value to SIOO were stolen. This is the second time within a month that the place has been robbed. There was a full meeting of the trustees who will have iu charge the erection of the Home for Union Printers at Colorado Springs in Chicago Tuesday, it was decided to begin preliminary ar rangements fer plans, etc., at on :o and that work shall begin [on the foundation as soon us the frost is out of the ground in the spring. Tho meeting was a quiet one* tho trustees all seeming deeply interested in the success of the project and har monious on all measures for tho further ance of the work. A most miraculous escape from death occurred at the west end of the Denver and Rio Grande yards at Pueblo Tuesday, tho man bearing the charmed life being Tom Harrington. Harrington fell between an engine and a fiat car, and fivo cars passed over him. He was tnrown from one side to the other, rolled over, turned around, and juggled in every con ceivable rnanuer, and then luckily he caught hold of u journal on the last car, where he held on till the train stopped Ho then darted out between the trucks, and beyond feeling tired with his battle was not injured in the least. At Colorado Springs Wednesday the case against Wilson, Cain and Brownell, tho men accused of having attempted to pick the pocket of a Catholic priest at Manitou was heard. At 0 o’clock the jury returned a verdict of acquittal, and a rather sensational occurrence took place. Judge Campoell was about to adjourn court when Mr. Cochran, the deputy dis trict attorney, arose and stated that Wil son, one of the defendants, hud shaken his fist threateningly at him and had called him a vile name when the verdict was read. Mr. Cochran, Mr. A. B. Bus tin and G. R. Fowler all made oath to the fact. The court declared it a flagrant case of contempt of court and sentenced Wil son to the county jail for ninety days. Three loaded stone cars broke loose from a train six miles from Loveland the other day and started toward that town. The grade where this occurred was pretty steep, which gave the cars such a start that it was impossible to reach them to man the brakes. From that point to Love land is a gradual down grade, and the de tached cars a few minutes later came into the station there at a high rate of speed. The cars kept the track until they struck the switch just above the elevator, where they proceeded to tear up the track. By this time the runaway cars were headed down the switch and made a straight run on the ties until stopped by their own weight. The three cars were badly dam aged, but none of them capsized. It will require about 100 ties und four or five rails to ropair the damage to the track. The runaway reached the station a few minutes after the pussenger train went by. The payment of a novel election bet in Ouray last Saturday created a great deal of enthusiasm and excitement. The county clerk, Felix J. Parkin,a Democrat wagered a 150-pound heating stove with George L. Wright, Republican, on the re sult of the senatorial election for the Twenty-first district, the loser to pay for the stove and carry it on his back to the residence of the winner. The interesting and much talked of event was witnessed by at least 1,000 people. Tho Democrats had made elaborate preparations for the event. The Ouray band was engaged and a number of heavy teams were employed to draw coal, wash-boiler, coal-scuttle and other appurtenances. The procession was formed on the main street of the city, with Mayor Rowan in command. First came the band, followed by Parkin with the stove securely strapped to his back, escorted bi- George Wright, the victor, carrying a banner inscribed, “To the Victor Belongs the Spoils. ” The United States Supreme Court has handed down an opinion reversing the judgment of the United States Circuit Court for the district of Colorado in the case of tho United States, appellant, against the Trinidad Coal and Coking Company. This company holds legal title to six tracts of coal land within the Pueblo land district in Las Animas County, con taining in all 954 and a fraction acres. These lands wero acquired by transfer from j>ersons who entered them in me in terest of the company and at i»a expense. The law limits the amount of coal lands any one person may enter to ICO acres,an.l in the case of an association of persons to J2O acres. The suit of the United States was brought to set aside these patents •Tho Circuit Court in Colorado sustained the demurrer and dismissed the govern ment s suit. This court, on appeal, holds that the Circuit Court's decision was ’e r roneous This gives the State a good chanoo to win In another trial a I Another Mexican Affront. Quito :i little excitement was oc cuaiened in Sun Antonio, Texan, a few says ago by the crossing of the Mexicau river guard into this reservation and burning a large i|uautity of wood, intended for delivery to the post quartermaster at this post, and tiring several shots at one Jose Girago, an emyloye of Mr. Wilson, the wood contractor. Jose Girago was hauling the wood from the other side of the river in violation of orders that were given the river guard by the Mexican au thorities; at Paso del Norte to prohibit al such crossing, Whilo piling the wood on tbo United States military reservation, Girago was suddenly surprised by the ap pearance of the river guard, who demuuded that he accompany them as their prisoner. This Girago refused to do, at the same time starting to run toward tlio post, a distance of about a mile, when the Mexi cans opened tire on him, but luckily he es caped unhurt. The Mexicans then set lire to the wood and crossed to the other side of the river. As soou as the commandiug oßicer, Ma jor Logan, was noli tied he at once look u detail of armed meu and started for the scene. He fouud the invaders gone, but munaged to save oue-half of the wood, thirty qprds in all. It is not known why orders were given by the Mexican author ities to prohibit the crossiug of cord wood, as thero is no duty on that article, but it is thought to have some connection with the late tariff law, which levies increased duties on other Mtxiean products. There is considerable excitement among Ameri cans at such a high-Lauded procedure,but uo further trouble is apprehended. New Russian Courts. Students of statecruft are observing with n.uch interest the Czar's novel ex periment in the establishment of the provincial tribunals, composed of the Mobility, with very exteusive authority as courts of original jurisdiction on appeal from the village tribunals. For conturies, indeed long before Peter the Great, the policy of the Czar has been to break down the nobility as an obstacle to their own autocracy, and tho nobility has of late been pretty well subdued. Now the Czar is takiug steps to partly restore the power wrested from them. The new tribunals, so far as their methods are known, have begun in an ar bitrary way and show contempt for the ancient, authority of the village courts, while at the same time reviving the use of the knout, which hus been legally prohib ited in Russia for a number of years. How far the new system will avail to shield the throne of the Czars remains to bo seen. It has progressed far enough to at least show that one of its primary el feet*, whether so intended or not, will be to utterly deprive the peasuuls of the Den elits of the local judicial functions of their beloved village communion or “Mir.” Couldn't Hold Him Up. W. D. Viquesney, the snure-drura mer of the Giilis Opera House orchestra, Kansas City, and also a drummer in the Third Regiment Band, was held up by foot-pads the other night at the corner of Fifteenth Street and Prospect Avenue. Mr. Vlquesney had just alighted from a Prospect Avenue horse car a 7:15 o'clock and walked across to the north side of Fifteenth Street to take a cable car when five men emerged from behind the build ing at the corner and surrounded him. One drew a revolver on him and two others seized his arms, while the remain ing two prepared to search his pockets. Mr. Viquesney is a stonemason by trade and a powerful man physically. He easily brushed off the two men who tried to hold his arms and with a blow from tho right shoulder Knocked the man who held the revolver into the gutter and picking up the firearm quickly pointed it at the crowd. He gave them two minutes to disappear. A few seconds was all they took. The Italians at New Orleans. A late dispatch says the excitement over the Italian or anti-Itulian issues growing out of the recent assassination of Chief of Police Hennessy is becoming more intensified, and it is feared that ser ious disturbances are yet in store. The Time*-Democrat, following up its charges of cruelty to prisoners, has published three columns of interviews with Italians to substantiate them. Their ‘interpreter, Jose the supposed leader of the Mafia here, who is charged with murder, is the only man among the prisoners speaking English and Italian. He said that the charges of cruelty to the prison ers are true. Mayor Shakespeare has published a re ply to Pasquale L’orte, the Italian consul, in his recent criticism, in which the mayor shows that nine of the men charged with the murder of Hennessy have been Amer ican citizens for two years or more. Pub lic sentiment hero condemns the consul’s action as unwarranted interference and as likely to cause trouble. The principal fea ture of the consul’s course was the writing of a letter to the grand jury. Sentencing of Irish Agitators. In tho court at Clonmel a verdict of guilty was rendered against William O'Brien, John Dillon.

William O'Brien and Dillon were each sentenced to two terms „of im prisonment of six months each, but the sentences are to run concurrently. Pat rick O'Brien and Cullinane were each sentenced to s*x mouths imprisonment, and Walsh, Mockler and Bolton to four months each. All the sentences were without labor. Father Humphreys, Thomas J. Condon, member of Parliament, Daniel Kelly and and David Sheehy. member of Parliament, who were indicted on the same charges, were found not guilty and were discharged. Farm Machinery Trust. There was organized in Chicago during the pa3t few days one of the largest corporation* in its line in the world. The charter was filed in Spring field last Wcdnesdaj-, and the name of the new company will bo known as the Amer ican Harvester Company for the manufac ture of harvesting machinery with a capital stock of *15,000,0C0. The directors of the new company will be Cyrus H. Mc- Cormick, William Decring, Walter A. Wood, Lewis Miller, A. L. Conger and (ienerul A. S.

The Indians seem to have been intensely stirred up over the coming of the Messiah, reports of which have been heretofore made by the agents and by military officers, and the medicine men have succeeded in producing a state of feeling that is likely to lead to serious trouble. The Indians are collecting amu nition at exhorbitant prices and making active preparations for going on tho war path. They have defied the agent* aud the local police and are threatening to drive out the whites on the coming of the Messiah. Upon the recommendation of General Miles several troops of the Eighth cavalry, stationed at Fort Meade, are or dered to take the field, and those at Forts Niobrara, Robinson and other point* in the vicinity of the anticiDated trouble are ordered to bold themselves in readiness General Schofield deems it best to make a demonstration at this time which will check the fanaticism of the Indians and make such an impression upon their young men that they will not be disposed to re new tLeir present hostile purpose in tho spring. JAMESON'S STATEMENT. He Witnessed a Scene of Cannibalism. But Did not Abet the Crime. Mrs. Jameson, wife nf the dead man who has been accused of buying a slave girl in Africa that the natives might eat her to furnish a subject for him to sketch, has given to the London Times a letter written by her husband a few days before his death explaining the matter. Jameson's letter is addressed to Sir \\ il liam Mackinnon, and is dated Stanley Falls, August 3, ISSS. After describing Assad Farrnn’s statement us false and cruel, Jameson writes: “Upon arrival at llibaruba the chief lu vited me to his residence where 1 wit ressed a curious native dance, following other ceremonies, which Tippo said was usually followed by a cannibal feast. 1 laughed skeptically, whereupon another Arab related a horrible story. 1 flatly de clared that it was im|>ossib!e that tbi-* could happeu. The Arab retorted: ‘Give me a bit of cloth ami s< o ' 1 thought this a mere ruse to obtain a gift, but the Arab had formerly been kiud, so I gave him a piece of six handkerchiefs. “Then followed the most horrible scene 1 ever witnessed in uiy life. The whole thing happened so quickly that It was im possible to make sketches had ! wished to do so. Further, I had nothing to sketch with. The smull sketches I made were done in the evening ut my own house The girl never looked for help. She seemed to know it was her fate. She never stirred band, foot or bead. How the girl was ob. tained I don’t know yet, hut will send you ail particulars siguod by witnesses as promised." Bonny, in his report to Stanley, do scribes the march from Vam buy a to Unaria und says the constant delays were due to bluster, swagger and bad manage ment. Jameson was continually pressing Bartelot to allow the Manycinas to tak» long halts. Then Bartelot lost the road, but was unwilling Vo admit it aud returned to Stauley Fails. "I did not see him, ' Bonny continues, “from the ->rd of June to the l?th of July. This entailed twenty days delay." Bonny then recouuts the serious loss, s of arms and stores, through theft and dc sertion, until Bartelot returned, while during tho twenty-four days Bonny was in command they never lost a man or a load and traveled quicker. Bonny relates the circumstances of Bartelot s death an.: the reasons therefore practically as be fore. In telling of Major Bartolot's bringing chains from Stanley Falls for slaves ho says : “You may not nke to hear this,but the facts are in |s>ssession of the Congo State authorities and it is best for jou t ? be prepared to meet any statement-' he here described the death and burial of Bartelot, precisely as he did to Stanley . In conclusion he describes the trial and execution of Songa, and expresses the be lief that Bartelot was insane and gives an account of Stanley's arrival. “Reviewing revut events, 1 conclude that Bartelot’s mind was offer His grinniug and other actions showed that there was something wrong." The Cure for Consumption. Dr. Koch, who has discovered what is believed to be a core for consumption, has published a statement of the best method of application and the probable re suits. Persons suffering from tuberulosis of the limphatic glands, bones or Joints, have been treated with success. There has been rapid healing in the milder cases and cases of recent development of the disease, while In tho severe rases the improve ment, while slower, has been steady. Pa tients with prouounced tuberculosis of the lungs have proved far more susceutible to the remedy than thoso suffering with sur gical tubercular affections. Consumptives have in almost every instance manifested a strong reaction on greatly reduced doses. With such patients, therefore, a beginning should be ma le with d -scs of two one-thousandth part of a cubic centi meter, or even with one thousandth part. From this small incipient dose one can ad vance to such quantities as the patient can easily bear. In the experiments that hare been conducted, consumptives have ac cordingly first received a subcutaneous injection of the one thousandth part of a cubic centimeter, then when the tempera ture increased the same dose was applied daily, until no further reaction occurred. Thereupon the dose was doubled, two one thousandths part of a cubic centimeter be ing injected regularly until again do re action occurred. This method was con tinued with almost always an increase of one-thousandth part of a cubic centimeter, or almost two one-thousumlihs up to one one-bundredth part, and so on upwards. In this way the pulient would be brought to take very high doses almost without fever and almost imjierceplibly to him self. Consumptive patients who are still fairly strong reach increased doses much more quickly, nr.d favorable results follow with corresponding rapidity. As a general rule the coughing and expectoration are Increased somewhat after the first injec tions, when they become gradually less and in the most favorable cases will ulti mately wholly disappear. Professor Koch deprecates the mechan ical and indiscriminate application of the remedy. He holds that it would bo pre ferable that the treatment should be ap plied in suitable institutions where careful observatiou would be possible. In all cases Professor Koch emphasizes tho necessity of early treatment. Only in incipient stages of disease, he declares, can the remedy fully develop its efficacy. The lymph is described as consisting of a brownish, transparent liquid so prepared an to be proof agaiust deterioration. When diluted with water for use the matter is liable to decay; it is necessary, therefore, that ihe attenuations should be perfectly sterilized by heat and preserved in a -wadding covering, or prepared with a solution of phocol SO per centage strong When taken into the stomach the curative matter proves to have no effect. It must bo applied sub cutaneously by means of a vnlvcless syringe, which must be rinsed with absolute alcohol and kept in a per fectly antiseptic condition. There is a regular exodus from the Mediterranean shores of consumptives to Berlin, and the hotels are rapidly filling. Many American doctors have given notice that they are comiug to hear Professor Koch's lecture on No vomber 2d. A host of foreign doctors are arriving. Governor Routt and other prominent stockmen say that tho cattle in the State have done very well this year, and tb« prospect for wintering them is good. The State Alliance.

The New Spanish Minister. Some interesting remarks bearing upon the subject of reciprocity took place between Scnor Miguel Juarez Guam, the newly appointed Spanish minister to the United States, and the President on tho occasion of the former’s fcrmal presenta tion to the President as tbo newly accred ited representative of Spain. Senor Guana spoke as follows “Spain and the United State* are cer tainly two nations which hare every rea son to lire in perfect harmony with each other. The internal exchange of the pro ducts and manufactures of each people sorely one of tho necessary laws based upon the productions and universal needs of the present day, end the greater the difference between their customs, dispo sitions and the productions of their labor, so much the more necessary is it for na tions to come closer together aud try to increase their exchange*. To maintain these interests and to contribute to their development shall be the object of my most solicitous care.'’ President Harrison said: “It is most gratifying that, in thus enter ing upon 3our mission, yon express, in the name of your soverign and of the S|<s&lsb nation, a warm desire for continoed har mony of relations and intimacy of inter course between the United States and Spain. Inspired b, hke sentiment* I count upon your promised aid in develop ing the larger relations and the closer ties of amity and comment* of both nations in their desire far their reciprocal ml van tage.” Search For a Lost Child. A special from Hillsboro. Tennes see, says. A remarkable search for a lost child baa been agitating tno native* cf this and aJ Joining counties during the past few days. I-aat Sunday morning about s o'clock. Hud Putt* and wife, living on the top of the Cumberland mountains, near the Grundy and Coffee county line, went to Sunday school, leaving their four small childreo at home. When they were absent their little girl, who is between * and 9 years of age and is deaf, dumb and an idiot, strayed away from the house, unknown to the other children. Upon the return of the father and mother search was at once made, bat without result. The mother was wild with grief, and at last a party of neighbor* Joined in the soarvh. The country for mites around was thor oughly explored, but still there came no tiding* of the loot one. Tho whole coun try became aroused, and the search was prosecuted with vigor every day until Thursday, when the little one was found, alive, several mites from home. It had been in the 'Woods four da;, s aud nights.in a section of country where bears,panthers und other wild beasts abound, yet it was unharmed. The child was found on top of a preci pice, and tracks along the top showed that it bad stepped, on various occasions, within a few steps of the edge. Spotted Fever in Tennessee. A special from Gallatin. Tennessee, says: The dreadful spotted fever that made its appearance lost March near Fountain Head, about fifteen miles from Gallatin, killing about M> per cent of the victims, has reappeared.
