I — fhe feature of the Thanksgiving cele Oration at Richmond, \ irginia. was the cutting of the mammoth Cleveland and ■Stevenson democratic plum pudding by Senator Daniel. The weight of the pud ding was 271 pounds. A 12-pound slice was sent to each of the successful candi dates. twelve being the electoral vote of Virginia. Owing to the death of his father-in law. the president will be unable to complete his annual message to congress in time for submission on the opening day of the session. It will probably he the end of next week or the beginning of the week after before it is presented. It will he about the same length as the last and will be a complete review of the work of the present administration. The Southern Pacific has notified con nections that after December 31 it will not receive single or round trip tickets to Oregon or California points via the Northern Pacific or Canadian Pacific. After January 1 it will require the local rate from Portland via the Oregon Short Line. The announcement created con siderable excitement in railroad circles, as it is interpreted to mean a passenger war of no small proportions. Warner and Stvasey of Cleveland, de- • signers and builders of the famous 36 tncli Lick telescope and 26-inch telescope for the new naval observatory at Wash ingion, 1). C., will make a 40-inch Verkes telescope for the university of Chicago. The Lick telescope is now the largest in ho world, but this new instrument will exceed it in power by 2.7 per cent. The tube of the great telescope will be 73 feet long and the instrument will weigh not less than sixty tons. It is expected the telescope will be completed in one year. The astronomers at the Lick observa tory have been systematically observing the comet since Nov. 8, and have secured several photographs. When tirst ob served it appeared quite dense. Since then it has become much larger, and at the same time much less dense. Now it is is barely visible to the naked eye. They agree that it is not Htela's comet, and is not close to, nor is it approaching : the earth. Tue orbit seems to lie en tirely outside of Mars, and therefore can never approach us, even as closely as Mars does. The tnetoric shower of Nov. 23 could not be observed on account uf a i cloud. Dr. Scott, the venerable father-in-law of President Harrison, died at Washing ton, D. L\, November 29th: Rev. Joint Witherspoon Scott, D. D., was born in I Beaver county, Pennsylvania, June 22, 18U0. He graduated from t lie college at 1 Wasnington, Pa., and subsequently took a post-graduate course at Vale, accept ing a professorship it, Miami university, Miami, Ohio, in 1826. A number of i years later Dr. Scott founded the Oxford (Ohio) female college, and in 1850 became its president. As lie advanced in years ! Dr. Scott gave up college work and going to Washington was appointed to a clerk ship in the inlerior department, which position he held up to the tune of the advent in Washington of President Har rison, when he resigned at the instance of the president and took up Ins abode at the white house. Death came peace fully, he having been unconscious for hours and unable to recognize friends at his bedside. The forthcoming report of Comptroller of the Currency Hepburn shows 163 banks with an aggregate capital of 815, 285,000. Of those organized during the year, fifty-three went into voluntary liquidation and seventeen became insol vent. Nearly 50 per cent of the new hanks are located west of the Mississippi river and 35 per cent in the southern states. The number of banks in opera tion is 3788 having an aggregate capital of 8693,868,615; surplus and undivided profits of 8310.534,179; individual depos its, 81,765,122,983; hank deposits 8530, 153,202 and total resources of 83 310,094, 897. The circulation outstanding shows a net increase for the year of,810,487, 226. The gold held by banks, compared with September 25, 1891, shows an in crease of 821,994,115. Surplus and prof its increased 89,063,020; individual de posits increased 8177,101,902 and hank deposits increased 8100,058,128. Over two-thirds of the liabilities of the seven teen banks reported as having failed be long to the Maverick Hank. Superintendent of Census Porter, in his annual report, strongly urges that the census office he made a permanent bereau of the interior department. Re garding the cost of taking the eleventh 1 census, he says the total disbursements ; ! | ; I : up to June 30, 1892, amounted to 88, 203,693. Of the thirteen volumes in which the results will he emliodied, tliere are now in the hands of the printer eight quarto volumes, but the infinite • L. tain a ing of the The ler tiie city will an detail of the office makes it impossible to fortell the date of completion of the whole work. The Stone City bank of Joliet, Illinois, has closed its doors. It is estimated that nothing le-s than half a million dollars will settle the banks liabilities. Official returns of Minnesota: Repub licans. 122.579; straight democrats, 100, 579; straight populists. 30,198; populist democrats, 107,077 ; prohibitionists, 11,079. The executive committee of the New York free silver league mat at the head quarters Saturday and appointed a committee of live to visit Washington, and advocate the passage of a hill to in crease the purchase of silver from four anil a haif millions to eighteen millions per month as a necesssary measure to prevent the fall in prices, and to relieve the people from the evils of a contracted currency. The committee wiii also ad vocate the passage of a hill to restrict immigration by a heavy head money tax on ail immigrants. Capt. McKee, at the republican con gressional rooms in Washington, made a calculation on the composition of the next house, using as a basis, he says, tile figures from the returns made to various secretaries of slate. Two Rhode Island districts, where tliere was no election, have been omitted from his calculation, which results as follows: Democrats elected 218; republicans 128; populists 8; giving the democrats a majority over j the republicans and populists combined j of 82. Of the four territories, Arizona, New Mexico and Utah elected demo cratic delegates and Oklahoma a repub i B 1 lican delegate. j Robert Bonner is in earnest in his in- ; tentions, if possible, to have Maud S. i heat her own record next year. He lias j given out a contract for the construe-! tion of a covered track ■ s HJ feet long at j E. his farm in larrytown. The track will ; be fourteen feet wide, having a large ; loop at either end, so the mare can turn safely. The track will be finished on ! the inside with bended plank. Here MaudS. will be jogged all winter in or | der to give her full use of her muscles. ; And. if all goes well, when spring opens the mare will be put to task on Mr. Bon ner's fast track. Mr. Bonner Himself intends as far as possible to tit the mure. I She is today as sound as a dollar, with perfectly clean limbs, showing no traces of the hard work she lias done in lier many races. Indianapolis dispatch, 27th: Reports commue to come from various parts of the state of the desecration of soldiers' graves. At Martinsville today Michael Callahan brought the Btory that in the edge of Putnam county persons had : taken the tombstones off soldiers'graves, j set the stones against the cemetery I fence, painted them red and then danced on the graves. The Rev. Jesse B. John son of Holt corroborates the story. He ! further states that a citizen of Clayton. Hendricks county, knows the persons who committed the crime, and that be fore doing the deed the same persons, armed with tin buckets and other noise making articles fastened together, par aded through the places of business of republicans at Clayton. This is in the same section where so many cemeteries have been molested. The annual report of Commissioner of Pensions Green B. Raum shows there were on the pension rolls June 30 876,009 pensions, an increase during the year of 199.908. There were added to the rolls during the year 222,937 new pensioners, and 2,177 pensioners pre viously dropped were restored to the pension lists. During the year 25,306 pensioners were dropped from the rolls. The total amount expended for pensions during the year was 8139,035,612. For present fiscal year 8144,956,000 is appro priated, and taking the pension allow ance during the tirst four months of ttiis fiscal year as a basis of calculation, the commissioner estimates a deficiency appropriation of 810,508,621 will be need ed to supply the needed funds. An es timate of 8165,000,000 is submitted for the next fiscal year. The commissioner says, however, if as many pension allow ances arc made this year as last, this will not Vie enough. Under the depen dent and disability acts, 020,958 claims were hied, of which 403,859 have been allowed. Pension payments under the law to Sept. 30, amounted to 876,494,443. The commissioner heartily commends the disability act. g of a ast er to .billile Mi lier, to tl liutte A St. Paul dispatch Miner ol the 27th says: A. Snearon of this city was in Minne apolis yesterday inquiring for his friend, L. X. Tyler, time-keeper of the Moun tain Con. mine at Hutte. Tyler left Shearon's home last Wednesday with quite a sum of money to go to Northern Junction, near Minneapolis, and inspect a piece of property which he anticipated buying. This afternoon some hoys play ing around the road at the junction found an overcoat hidden behind a pile of railroad ties a short distance from the track. Several rents had been made, apparently with a knife, in the garment, which was soaked in blood. About 100 yards from where the e mt was found the ground Lire evid •noe of a bloody struggle. There is a mystery about the matter which seeuiH to denote a murder. The description of the coat worn by Ty ler tallies with the one found as described above. The owner of the coat was evi dently assaulted and robbed, as the place where tlie garment was found is infested by a gang of thieves and high waymen who make their rendezvous at tiie Junction. .All llO. ivollu' Khit S tockgrowers Journal: The old-time» cowboys of northern Nebraska met at Chadron, Neb., October 31, and orga nized a company to run a race from that city to the Nebraska building at the World's Fah'.

(liilrug)'. j Renton River Press: The Choteau ; county canvassing board, composed of i two republicans and one democrat, has j allowed itself to he tricked by a oonspir ucy which resulted in counting out E. j E. Leech, who received a majority of the ; popular vote, ami the issuance of a cer tilicate of election to A. B. Hamilton, who was defeated at the polls. The count of the returns from the various precincts showed that E. E. Leech, re publican candidate for the state legis ture. received 732 votes, while A. B. Hamilton, democratic candidate for the same position, was credited with 725 votes making a majority of seven in fa vor of Mr. Leech. Hut the democracy hud been at too much trouble and ex pense to give up the tight without a last desperate struggle, and steps had been taken looking to the overthrow of this result. The democratic candidate appeared before tne board of canvassers and pre sented a protest, setting forth that fraud had been committed at Box Elder pre cinct (which had given a majority of 14 j voteB to his opponent) and claiming that I tho returnB ff o' n this precinct shock! not ! could not reHc1 or write t,le En « litih liln be counted. The protest was supported by affidavits from three halfbreeds, who g cage and who averred that they re ceived money, which they "believed'' was in payment for their votes cast on election day. The poll book, by the way fails to show that one of these affiants voted at Box Elder. The board took the matter under advisement and on motion of \V. J. Minur, concluded to eliminate the Box Elder returns from the official count. When the canvassing board lirst met, a question arose as to whether certain returns should he counted in regard to a proposition voted upon, and the legal adviser of the board maintained that the hoard of canvassers had no judicial pow er to determine what should not he count ed; their duties were confined to count ing and checking off the returns sub mitted by the several judges of elec tion. These duties are concisely defined by section 6 of the election law of 1891, which says: The board must declare elected the persons having the highest number of votes given for each office to be tilled by the votes of a single county or subdivis ion thereof. This mandatory provision required the board of canvassers of Choteau county to declare the election of Mr. Leech, as the candidate receiving the highest number of votes. Should there arise any doubt as to the legality of any of the votes cast that question is a matter for the attention of the courts, the de termination of which would be effected by proper judicial investigation. A board ot. canvassers has no authority to pass judgment upon the legality or ille gally of any votes cast; it has no means at hand by which evidence can be col lected and analyzed; it cannot subptena witnesses and compel them to testify in the premises, and the bare affidavits of two or three men who may be here to day and over the international boundary line tomorrow is a lame excuse upon which to take snap judgment in so im portant a matter. The evident duty of the board was to declare the election of Mr. Leech; and should the courts subse quently decide that illegal votes were cast at Box Elder, thus vitiating the re turs from that precinct, then Mr. Ham ilton would have g»x>d and sufficient le gal grounds upon which to make a con test. The action of the board in revers ing this order of procedure is an outrage upon the republican party of Choteau county, and calls for condemnation at the hands of every intelligent citizen.
