Lct us see, says the New \ork Herald.
Chicago desires the National Convention
of IStiS. Philadelphia has pathetically
urged her claims: New \ ork has shown
conclusively to every man who thinks
twice that it ought to be held here, and
the Democrats of the Pacific slope are
anxious to extend to it the hospitalities
of Sau Francisco. The National conven
tion seems to be in great demand.
Well, California is worth thinking
about. It is one of the magniScent States
of the Union. Less than forty years ago
it was a wilderness, but the hiding place
of gold enough to set all creation by the
ears, and pretty nearly all creation pack
ed its gripsack and joined the scramble
for the nuggets. It was a human mena
gerie for a while, made up of the wildest
elements of ail nationalities; but when
the craze subsided the people rolled up
their sleeves, built cities, planted vine
yards, established law and order, and in
ISiil wheeled into line for the old flag
and took their place at the front.
California is one of the richest and
most productive pieces of real estate on
the continent. Geographically speaking
it is numbered among the giants of the
United States. If it should lie down on
our eastern seaboard it could lay its head
iu the lap of Mayor Hewitt in New \ ork
and its feet would rest on a cotton plan
tation iu Georgia; and if it had the night
mare it might kick the top of Florida a
head off.
Here is another curious fact, it a man
wore asked to point to a city which is
about half way along a line running from
the easternmost point of land to the
westernmost owned by tbe Lnited >tates
he would most probably choose San Fran
cisco, and there he would make his mis
take. Drawing a line from the western
end of the Aleutian Islands to the eastern
end of Maine you will find, to your sur
prise, that the Goluen Gate, on the Pa
cific, is about as near the middle of it as
you can easily get.
In point of population, however, San
Francisco is merely an outpost. At the
beginning of this century, or say in 1799, j
when Washington died, the centre of (
population was Baltimore. Daring every I
decade it has been creeping further away
from the Alleghanies and nearer to the ,
Mississippi. To-day it is a few miles
west of Cincinnati, but it is traveling at
a good gait, and Heaven only knows
where it will be at the beginning of the
next century, with half a million people
coming to our shores yearly and distrib
uting themselves over the country.
San Francisco may not get the National
Convention next year, but it can t be
long before her claims will be favorably
heard.
The Sergeant-at-arms of the House of
Representatives is having the mileage
accounts of the members of the next
Congress revised. Under the law each
Representative is allowed twenty cents
per mile. Delegate Smith, of Arizona,
stands at the head of the list, and will be
paid $1,000 for his expenses from Tomb
stone and back again. Representative
Herman of Oregon, and Delegate Voor
hees of Washington Territory, come next
on the list, followed by the California ,
delegation, who will receive about 61,300
each. Crain of Texas is to get $$00;
Mi!liken of Maine $261; Dougherty of
Florida 645b, and the New York city
members $92 each.
The least mileage will be drawn by
Lee of Virginia, who lives eight miles
from Washington, and gets $3 20.
Governor Waterman's misfortune in
having Mr. Boruek as a private Secretary
is still evident. According to the Sacra
mento Bee, that gentleman asserted the
other evening that the Governor was not
in the pardon business. “ That fellow
Goldenson will never get a ray of hope
from the Governor,” said the private Sec
retary. “I do not think that Mr. Wa
terman would ever hear a word concern
ing the case.” This, to be sure, was after
dinner, but was not exactly the thing to
say even then. There is no probability
that Governor Waterman will interfere
in any similar case, but he will do his
duty, and he will not announce his de
cision before he understands the facta.—
S. F. Post.
The bevolent pastor of a New York
church thought to reclaim the newsboys
and bootblacks of that city by furnishing
them with harmless amuseFnent. He col
lected a thousand of them in a big hail
an<t undertook to give a stereopticon
show. But the boys started a riot and
yelled so loud that they could be heard
for blocks, while the ladies nearly went
into hysterics, and the pastor was scared
out of his wits. This experiment shows
that it will not do for persons who fail
to understand thenatureof that singular
animal, the small hoy, to attempt his
reclamation, lest they be devoured by
him.
Secretary Lamar in his annual report
will recommend that the Iuter3tate Com
merce Commission be made independent
of the authority or supervision of the In
terior Department, and that it he made
directly responsible to Congress or to the
President, as nothing in the duties of the
Commission are within the usual author
ity or control of the Department.
The Superintendent of the railway mail
service says that during the pa3t year
there were 214 derailments or wrecks of
trains on which postal clerks were em
ployed, in which three men were killed, 15
seriously and seventy-two slightly in
jured. The government has mail con
tracts on 110,009 miles of railroads.
Senator Kiddieherger says: A poor man
has no more right to he in the Luited
States Senate than an iceberg has in
Hades.
IDAHO'S HOI'E OF STAUHOOD.
Tho Murray, Idaho, Sun asserts that
the population of Idaho does not exceed
65,000, and the increase is less than 5,000
| a year. This estimate falls far below
that made at lloise City, whose citizens
are mostly opjosed to annexing the Ter
ritory of Washington and Nevada. As
suming that the Sun, which is published
iu Xortheru Idaho, where the sentiment
; is unanimous tor annexation to Washing
ton Territory, is correct, Idaho, though
anxious to he endowed w ith all the rights
and privileges of Statehood, cannot ex
pect to be admitted into the Union of
States in the present century, or before
the bi-centenary anniversary of the Dec
laration of Independence. Every ten
years at the first session of Congress after
the completion of the census, a new ap
portionment of representatives is made,
and to prevent the Konse from bocom.ing
i too large and unwieldy a body, the num
ber of inhabitants to each member of
Congress is materially increased. At
present tho apportionment is one mem
ber of Congress to each 165,000 inhabi
tants, and the next, three years heuce,
will probably be 200,000. As no Terri
tory can expect to be admitted with less
than the number of inhabitants required
to entitle it to a Representative in Con
gress, the only way for the people of
Idaho to become citizens of a State is to
move out of the Territory, or have it an
nexed to Nevada and to Washington,
which will doubtless become a State at
an early day.—Silver State.
A Uettlhbed C«uff«slou.
A year ago Dr. Charles Lanteline, of
Mongul, Shippensang, Pa., a highly re
spected citizen, was charged by a young
woman of Mongul with having betrayed
her, and with being the father of her
child. Dr. Lanteline was arrested on the
charge, but denied all knowledge of the
girl. He was so emphatic in his declara
tion of innocence that he refused to ac
cept an offer made by the plaintiff 6 coun
sel to compromise. He was convicted by j
the girl's testimony alone, and sentenced
to three months in the county jail. The
girl's cause had been championed by a
prominent resident of high standing soci
ally and in business. Dr. Lanteline served
his term in jail, and resumed his practice
in Mongul when he was released.
The girl who accused him died recently,
and a great sensation has been created in
Shippensang county by the fact having
been made public a day or so ago that
while on her deathbed she sent for the
wife of the citizen who bad aided her in
the case against the Doctor, and confessed
to the lady that Dr. Lanteline was en
tirely innocent of the charge she had
made against him, and for which he was
punished, and that the lady's husband
himself was the cause of her ruin and the
father of her child.—X. Y. Sun.
It is said that Mr. Spurgeon of London,
is in the habit of testing the abilities of
the more promising students of his col
lege by obliging them to go into the pul
pit with a sealed envelope in their hands
containing the text cf their address. On
one occasion a student found on opening
his paper, this cubject set: “Apply the
story of Zacchieus to your own quaiinca
tions and calling.” And be delivered
himself in the following way: “My
brethren, the subject on which I have to
address you to-day is a comparison be
tween Zaccnaeus and my own qualifica
tions. Well, the Lrsl thing we read
about Zacch:*QF was that he was small of
stature, and I never felt so small as I do
now. In the second place, we read that
he climbed up into a tree, which is very
much my position now. Thirdly, we read
that Zacchieus made haste to come down,
in which I joyfully follow Lis example.”
Dr. Bryant, who accompanied Presi
dent Cleveland on his recent tour through
the we3fc and south, is a serious man,
who never jokes and never uses slang.
One day the doctor was walking through
the woods on the Belle-Meade farm near
Nashville, with Genera! Bill Jackson,
who is known far and wide as a very
successful raconteur. The general was
in particnlaly high spirits that day, and
stories ran out of him like sap out of
a sugar maple.
At the end of one especially good story,
the doctor, who did not seem to be much
pricked by the point of it, continued to
look up at the trees, which he had been
some time examining, and said: “Gene
ral, you ra:?e a good many chestnuts here,
don’t you All the rest of the day the
doctor wondered why General Jackson
told no more stories._

In the case of the State of Nevada vs.
J. K. Withington, pending in White
Pine county, the argument in the de
murrer to tiie indictment will be re
sinned on Monday next before Judge
A. I.. Fitzgerald. After (lie former
argument, his Honor expressed his
opinion to the counsel that the in
dictment was good, but at the request
of defendant's counsel granted them
leave to make further argument if
they desired to do so. Gen. It. M.
Clarke of Carson is expected to be
present and make an argument in tie
half of the defendant.
A motion to dissolve the attachment
in the case of McCurdy vs. Sampson,
pending in White Pine county, is set
for hearing betore Judge Fitzgerald
next Monday. Sampson had Mc
Curdy arrested for burning his ranch
buildings, and McCurdy sued Samp
son for $20,000 damages for malicious
prosecution, and attached Sampson’s
property. As this case will require a
judicial interpretation of the amend
ment law made last Winter, a decision
of the motion is looked forward to
with great interest.

The Reveille hoped to print the
good news ere this, that the Chicago
l».brtie~ had raised the liens and at
' taehments hv paying down the neces
sary hard cash and would begin im
' mediately to resume operations in the
j mines. But since the general shut
j down the hopes that have been raised
in the breast of the public, seem to
have !>eeii created, that they may he
dashed to pieces on the rocks of cer
tainty. \\ e are no nearer a settle
ment than we were at the very begin
ning, and the pointers of Manhattan's
destiny, have marked it for the sale of
the Sheriff. When the parties irom
Chicago, both lawyers, had reached
here, when R. M. Clarke of Carson
and H. G. Platt, of San Francisco hur
ried here to lend their legal advice,
the public again hoped, feeling that
it would be arranged satisfactorily and
the money raised, hut their hope was
horn of disappointment and nourished
by delusion. I.ong telegrams are
sent and received from Chicago each
day, hut telegrams seem only to stir
the mud into a deeper mire, m which
ail parties flounder the deeper they
wade in. The only telegram that will
lo the work is the one that announces
that the money has been deposited in
a bank for transfer here. From the
upshot of the complicated affairs, one
reading between the lines oi the vari
ous rumors circulated cannot but see
plainly that the Chicago parties come
out here more to see what was going |
on rather than with any idea of raising
the money. It now looks as if the j
Sheriff's sale and its clear deed is the ]
only salvation we have, and the sooner
that is brought about, the better it is
for the whole community.

Frank Swan, who left here -several ,
months ago with his family for Ore
gon, lias become part owner of a rich
mine situated in that State, which was
bonded for six months from tueust 1,
lss7, and upon certain payments hav
ing been made, the bond was extended
for four months longer. A Baker
City paper says: “Jonathan Bourne,
Jr., of Portland, returned troni an in
spection of the Swan A Tabor mine,
on Cracker Creek, lie rives a very
favorable report of the operations be
ing done there under the Superin
tendency of C. W. Knowles, and
takes witli him to Portland some lino
specimens of the ore. The bond held
by Mr. Knowles and others has only j
a few weeks yet to run. and during
that time development work will be
pushed energetically and scientifically,
and there is every probability of the
property being purchased bv tlie
parties negotiating. It is claimed that
this mine is the biggest thing of the
kind yet discovered, and that it throws
the celebrated Treadwell mine com
pletely in the shade.” We are glad to
learn that Frank is in such good luck.

A new revelation has been made to
the world about the moon, which is
really quite pleasant. Pr. Henry M.
Parkliurst tells us that what we have
■>een calling the man in the moon for
some centuries is really a woman’s
face: and the venerable philosopher
produces photographs showing that it
is a very beautiful woman's face. Po
ets have long accorded a female sex to
the luminary of night; an.! it seems
from thi- that the poetic idea has been
nearer the foundation of actual truth
than the scientific one in this as in
many other cases. Most people will
he glad to learn that the sardonic old
mar. in the moon lias been replaced by
a lovely female called “ Selene ” by
Pr. Furkhuist. The worship of that
orb will be likely to make lunatics re
spected. and voting ladies who go out
of doors by moonlight can feel assured
that they are under the best of chap
eronage. Tlie lovely being in tlie
moon is tlie best discovery of the year.

News was received lieiv to-day of the
| remarkable birth of a child in a cof
fin. The story conn s from Clarendon
county, and is as follows. ^ On
Wednesday a young colored woman
apparently died after a long illness.
The My was properly prepared for
burial and put into a coflin. All that
night the colored people in the neigh
borhood held their usual wake oxer
the corpse. Yesterday the funeral
services were beid in a church. The
body was to ho buried in a graveyard
some miles distant. The procession
had proceeded a m.ie and a half when
the pall-bearers were terrified by a
crying which proceeded from the cof
fin.
The procession came to a halt, and
after discussion the coflin was opened.
To the coustenia’.i 11 of the funeral
party it was discovered that the
woman was alive, but unconscious,
and that a new-born bale shared the
coffin with her. A number of the
party fled from the scene, but others
remained and ministered to the wants
of the woman and infant. Both were
taken to a neighboring house, and at
last accounts the mother was doing
well and her complete recovery is ex
pected. Tlie infant is in good health

One-arm Jim's Indian friends in the j

action oi the pale faces in his case, j
Jim, as is well known, murdered a j

as is known. He had an impartial j
trial an 1 was found guilty of murder.
The Board of Pardons refused to com- j
mute his sentence, and the Supreme !
Court affirmed the judgment of the 1
trial court. But Indians care nothing ;
for courts and only look at results.
They now understand that he is to be
executed iu January, in fact, we are
informed, that his brother up in tjuin

to be the day after the court fixed the
day for his execution. This brother,

walked from McBermit to Willow
Creek the night that lie learned that
Jim is to be hanged, and held a con

tri!>e : what, if anything, they proposed
doing is no: known to the whites, but :
from their actions it is surmised that
they may cause trouble.

The most successful way to judge a
business man is to watch liis manner
of advertising. A live, liberal ad vet
tiser is invariably an energetic, wide
awake business man, and as libera! in
his dealings with his patrons as lie ;s
with the press. A man who will 'not
represent his business in the advertis
ing columns of a paper, loves money
too well to be an easy man to deal
w ith, and a purchaser can never drive
a fair bargain with such money
squeezers. They are tight fisted, hang
to all they get, and never send a dol
lar along the channels of trade or give
one to charity when they can sink it
in a till. Ii you want to trade where
liberality will be guaranteed to yon,
hunt up the merchant who is not too
picavntiisli to represent his business in
the form of a bright, showy ad. Tiiat
man will do to deal with’ He does
not depend for success on higii prices
and little trad--. He wants a long list
of customers, and will work on small
margins to get them and to keep them
afterward. Such a man is worthy the
patronage of every good citizen. His
advertising, like the finger-board on
the highway, points out the road to
commercial success, and is also an in
dicator of the man’s liberality ami
social worth.—Reno Journal.
Death of a .Voted Gambler.
George Duval, “ a monte man from
way back,” died in St. Louis last
week. He is said to have outwitted
the most notorious sharps. He and
Canada Bill, for years, followed the
Central and L'nion Pacific, making
their headquarters hv turns at Omaha,
Sait Lake, Reno and San Francisco.
Finally their depredations became so
numerous and the complaints against
them so general, that the very strict
est measures hail to lie taken'bv the
railroad lines to rid the ears of their
presence. In time they found their
unlawful business unprofitable, and
finally abandoned it altogether.
Duval went to St. Louis, where he
engaged in legitimate trade. But it is
said at times the love of adventure
overcame his reformation and he would
disappear for wi eks, to !>e heard of in
some of the Territories, where for a
brief season he plied his tricks and
games on the foolish and unwary.

murder in the first degree, one for
murder in the second degree and six
for acquittal.
The evidence showed that Lewis,
after a dispute with Piccolo, avowed
an intention of killing the latter;
walked two miles at 3 o’clock in the
morning, procured a revolver, re
turned to Piccolo’s cabin and fired
four shots, killing Piccolo instantly.
Levyis then went away, but returned
again, raised the dead man’s head and
fired the remaining shot in the pistol
through Piccolo's brain. The defense

Not long ago Cal Knapp purchased
the old City Hotel for $10, and pulled
it down to sell the old lumber. In the
attic of tlie building he stumbled
across a lot of queer things, most of
which had apparently been left by
passing strangers in Carson as secur
ity for board. There were trunks and
valises ad lib., saddles, old harness,
boxes, bundles, etc. The trunks con
tained bricks to give them weight, and
the valises were still redolent of the
scents of old socks. But the most j>e
culiar discovery of all was a kit of
counterfeiter’s t<->ols. and a quantity of
bogus ball dollars, which had been
made in the rude branch mint. There j
were also quite a number oi silver
watches of an antiquated pattern, and
all sorts of old traps, which had evi
dently been stolen and secreted there
for future reference.
Some years ago. at intervals, the
{>oliee of this city were puzzled by the
appearance of bogus half dollars. The
make of the coin was good, and well
calculated to deceive. The belief is
that the counterfeiting was done in
this attic, and probably discontinued
by the manufacturers long ago.—Car

Pittsburg, Nov. 28.—A well-dressed
young man giving the name of John
\V. Armytage, of San Francisco, was
arrested here last night for attempting
to pass a bogus check for $500. Army
tage came here several days ago with
letters from John \Y. Mackay, the
California millionaire, which he pre
sented to Black & Baird, real estate
dealers. He claimed to be an agent
of Mackay s, and intimated that he
was commissioned to purchase a site
for a cable station. Yesterday after
noon he called again and asked them
to cash a check for $500, as he was in
need of funds. The check was signed
by Mackay, and was drawn on the
Bank of California. Black <fc Baird
telegraphed to Mackay. and an an
swer was received last night, saying
that Armytage was unknown. He
was arrested at the Hotel Anderson
and is now in jail. It is supposed the
letters in his possession are also for
geries. Armytage is28 years of age,
weighs 145 pounds and is five feet 11
inches in height.

for 23 cents per ton, it is getting the
business down to a very fine point,

ore of that value is paying about 56
cents per ton profit. This record was
made recently at the Spanish mine,
Washington township, Nevada county,
California.
