Vermont has tried the experiment of sending more laymen and fewer lawyers to the State Legislature. The new membership includes only thir teen lawyers, while the farmers num ber 1UH. _ According to the census figures for the States so far given out, the West is gaining much faster than the East in population. That means that nnder the new apportionment they will have a much larger representa tion in Congress and in the electoral college four years hence. The new commonwealth of Austra lia will be proclaimed on the 1st of January. It contains a population of 0,750,000, which is increasing at the rate of 50,000 a year. New Zea land is expected in time to enter the federation with 750,000 additional population. Two years hence the commonwealth will havo its own tar iff on imports, and it is most likely to be protective of home industries. The tariff will operate against Great llritain as well as all other countries. The Washington Post sums up the political situation as follows: “The indications of tho hour are that Mr. Bryan is practically sure of election without the vote of New York or any of its neighboring States. It is not at all a bad situa tion from our point of view. What it is from Mr. McKinley's be is dem onstrating by his actions. He is a shrewd politician, and be koows that unless the tidal wave he is enooun tering now can be turned back and made to rush in the opposite direc tion within the next few weeks bis chances of exile to the village of Canton in March next are too good to be contemplated without grief." < »:**! « Bt rtKt.

Kxcllluff trip ot IheCliu. » Uu» The steamer Charles D. Lane ar rived at Port Townsend, Wash., on Oct. 16 from Cape Nome after a thrilling and tempestuous voyage of seventeen days. The vessel, it will be remembered, was considered unsea worthy on its outward voyage, and on the homeward trip the boilers leaked to such an extent that the water fre quently extinguished the fires, and had it not been for the presence on board of an expert boiler maker an explosion must have resulted. For three days the vessel was tossed by the waves while repairs were being made, and her arrival in port relieved the passengers and crew of their ter rible aniiety. W ork of KnuuicrMtloH Dour. The enumeration work of the twelfth census is completed, and the enumerators are practically all paid. There were 53,000 enumerators and 207 supervisors.

Idaho'• Ills; Irrigating Sfll«m«. The State of Idaho has segregated 248,000 acres of land on the Snake river near Shoshone Falls, to be re claimed under the Carey Aot by oanals to bo taken out of the river at the head of the canyon leading to the falls. The undertaking will cost 81,500,000. This is the greatest irri gation undertaking ever projected in that State and one of the largest in the couutry. OI.D riHKBW AT ILT. ,r»»k Brake looking iflM »*!• Iikmu in While Tine. White Pine News, Oct. 18: Wm. Reed end J. B. Orr retnrned last Monday from Hamilton, accompanied by Capt. Frank Drake, who was at one time General Manager of the Eberhardt Company’s mines both at Treasure Hill and at Taylor and was one of the most prominent citizens of the county during the old boom days. The Captain has been en gaged for several weeks looking after his horses, of which he has a large number ranging south of Hamilton, and as it is bis first visit to White Pine in many years, he has received a hearty welcome from bis old-time ' friends. In company with Mr. Reed bo paid a pleasant call to the News, which he was instrumental in found ing in 1868, and of which he has been a regular subscriber ever since. After leaving White Pine, Capt. Drake managed some mining prop | erties for several years in Mexico for the Eberhardt Company, but at the present time is making his head quarters at Vallejo, California, where he has a ranch and some blooded horses, and is engaged, as he ex pressed it, “principally in taking • are of the old man.” He informed ns that all tbo surplus horses in Cal ifornia have been sold and shipped out of the State, and that good, well mated roadsters are selling at from ;?400 to 8800 per span. His own range horses in this county he ex pects to have gathered this Winter and will put them on the market next Spring. A SMOOTH NWINDLKM. Huj er »•*> « for UIk Miami of llorno Willi Bum* ( lurU Carson Appeal: A man giving his namu as F. It. Tanner, and claiming to be a nepbew of Governor Tanner of Illinois, purchased a lot of horses from Bob Qrimmon and the Itay craft Bros, at Carson, drew a check in their favor on a bank in Illinois for £1,900 and at the same time gave them another for £300, which he re quested them to draw for himself, saying he was short that amount on the money he needed to prepay the freight. The checks were returned to the Bullion Bank and the Illinois people knew no such person. The Kaycrafts stopped the horses by wire at Ogden and will be out several hundred dollars beside the £300 they paid Tanner. As soon as he can be looated be will be brought back here on a criminal charge. He also passed bogus checks in Reno Kuckrfrllfr'a liniuenae Wealth. In one day last week John D. Rockefeller cleared up £5,678,000 by the advance in price of Standard Oil Company’s stock, which jumped from £566 to £583 per share. Mr. Rockefeller’s interest in this monop oly amounts to more than £33,000, (XX), and his income from this source alone will this year reach S16.650, (XX). Mr. Rockefeller's annual in oome from all sources is estimated at £75,000,000, which is more than the salaries of all the ruling mon archy of the civilized nations of the globe. I.n« Mirth Kate In Prussia. Recent official statistics show a farther decrease in the Berlin birt* rate, wbiob is now bnt 29 per 1,00*., and that the number of the children is 450,000, which, if there had been a normal birth rate for Prussia,would be *00,000. The papers draw par allels with the French conditions in this respect. How Wo Css Up Our Forests. It is estimated that it takes twenty two acres of spruce land to furnish enough wood pulp paper to run a large metropolitan daily just two days. The writer who makes this statement de plores the time, when, at this rate, our forests will entirely disappear and paper be very scarce and ex pensive. Meantime, the art of print ing continues, because there are many truths the world should know; among others, that llostetter’s Stomach Bit ters is a cure for diseases of the stom ach, such as dyspepsia, indigestion, constipation, biliousness, insomnia and nervousness. This famous medi cine has been the standard remedy of the American people for fifty years. Do not accept a substitute. The genu ine has a private Revenue Stamp over the neck of bottle. niNINU NOTE*. Prom the Mining and Scientific Free*. Uvery representative body of metal minora in convention in the last four years have resolved in favor of revis ion of the American mining law, and each proposed revision has been vari ously drafted, but so far none other than tentative effort has been made to secure legislation thereon. „ Utah miners say there is more profit in operating a silver-lead mine now with silver at 632 cents than when it was 90 cents an ounce. Improved and cheaper methods, economic processes, reduced expenses, better transporta tion facilities, improved machinery, utilization of all min6 products, are among the stated causes. The American Smelting Company in its first year is credited with having smelted at its various plants about 1,500,000 tons of ore ; it used 600,000 tons of fuel and 400,000 tons of flux ; the output of the refineries was 1,200 000 ounces of gold, 40,000,000 ounces of silver, 160,000 tons of lead; total value, about $64,000,000, of which gold constituted nearly $25,000,000. Anyone holding a United States pat ent to mineral land need do no further work upon it, nor is there any further tax or expenditure so far as the federal government is concerned. But a pat ented claim, like any other real estate, is liable to local taxation. Sometimes such local taxation is more than the $100 annual development work would be, and the likelihood of such taxation has been a fruitful cause of delay in completing title to mining property. The government of British Colum bia, it is said, has decided to ofTer for sale all the government mining claims in the Klondike region. This news will be received with much joy at Dawson, as it means the development of the beet property there. The prop erty in question is the alternate claims that had been reserved by the govern ment during the big rush. There are about 10,000 claims in the reserve. GENERAL NEWS SUMMARY. William S. Wilson, Postmaster-Gen eral under Cleveland and author of the Wilson tariff bill, died suddenly at his home in Lexington, West Virginia, on Wednesday of last week. Joseph Savage and William Moyle were blown up and killed early Tues day morning in the Quincy mine at Park City, Utah. They were search ing for an unexploded charge. The introduction of the cyanide ore leaching process in the South Dakota Black Hills district has increased the gold output to a degree that will place it second on the list of producers of that metal.
