W ISKINDA T APK1L 2H. ItESTUKIKU HARMONY. For wet-ks jmnt the Tiim which clmns t. the moiitli-pii'fle of the Dolly Vnrdens, Las boon advocating uie.itsiires euiidusive to party harmony. Thu sincerity of its assertions uud the consistency of its opinions are shown in the following piiraururili froui last Diht'n editorial: It miirit 1m further borne in mind that by the notion of the Onm.fy Central Committee Tutor are loft to exurciae thair wn discretion in their choice of candidates, and that should they nut approve of the nominations made by a possible riiii;. no tipprobiious epithets are to be hurled at them if they see fit to nominate and elect another Citizens' ticket. This means that t'ue tuun who were allowed to come back into the parly yesterday under the guise of restoring party harmony, can at any time repeat the work which .defeated the party two years ago. The article also exults uver the victory nchieved by t he D. Vs over the Str.ii'its, as if the action of the Centra! Committee wad brought about either by brib ery or intimidation. Doubtless this Tribune will say to-day that it meant uo such a thing, but the trouble with that sheet is that it has an ignoramus for an editor arid most of the time doesn't exactly know what it is saving. The Central Committee ivsoindud the third cl.iuse of the test of their own tree will and no one will assort that they wvru either bribed r bullied. If the reconeiU.Vion is accomplished there are wo Dully Yard is and the Trihunt is the organ f nothing. The Appeal would like to hear from some ex-D. V, as to w hether or net the utterances of last night's Tribune represent the views of any body except K. R. Parkinson.. Hhibeks Convicted. All decent men will be gratified to learn that the live men who offered bribes to the Pennsylvania Legislature have been convicted and sentenced to pay a tine of $1,000 each and one year's hard labor in the Penitentiary. Their names were, Kemble, Crawford, Petroti', Solter and Rum berger, and were employed by the railroads to secure the pa33age of a bill authorizing the payment of $4,0(10,000 to the railroads for the damages by the riots of 1877. It was esti mated that the damage was about half that sum. W. II. Kemble was at one time State Treasurer of Pennsylvania. All were men of wealth and position aud their summary con viction aud punishment falls with terrible weight on them and their aristocratic families The Chrunide exults that these men were Re publicans. As far as their political complex ion is concerned they were Republicans simply because they lived in a strong Republican State and went with the majority. They be long to it class of political tricksters who fol low any party that pays them, and Hup from one side to another where there is any dirty work to be done. It is to he hoped that the lesson will have a salutary eflict upon all bribers throughout the country and teach rail road lobbyists that there is a power in the laud above corporations. THE TRUE IDEA. The friends of Col. R. H. Taylor are doing their level best towards securing him the noin illation by the Republican party for Supreme Judge, to succeed Judge lieatty. Carson In- In reply to which the Times-Review remarks " The managers of the Virginia & Truckee Railroad are probably "doing their level best to succeed Judge Beatty with some other per son, but if they are successful in defeating his nomination, their candidate will never warm a seat on the Supreme Bench. The defeat of Beatty will insure the election of the Demo cratic nominee, for the people will take care that no railroad corporation candidate for that position shall ever reseive a majority of the popular vote of the State." Till Earl of Dunnore, who owns a prop erty of 30,000 acres in Scotland, and is cele brated as being one of the most extensive cat tle breeders in the United Kingdom, has gone to Helena, Montana, where he proposes to start arancho on a very extensive scale. He iutends to buy several thousand head of cat tle in Texas and have theui transported to his ranche during the coming Summer. It is his further intention to import two or three hun dred bulls of his own favorite breed, and ha is sanguine of raising a stock of cattle second to none. His ultimate intention is to ship beef to England, preserved by the refrigerating process. JcixiK John Rice was a very violent seces sionist, and in a speech urging secession said: ' " Why, the Yankees! If they show fight, we can whip them with pop guns." A short time after the war, J udge Rice was making a speech at the same place where ho had made his boasting speech before the war. One of the audience asked if he was not the same man that spoke there in 18G0. " I am," he re plied. "Well, didn't yon say that we could whip the Yankees with pop-guns!" " I did; and we could have done it; but, 'em, thy wouldn't tight us that way!" The Oregon Stite Convention instructed the delegates ti the National Convention to vote for Blaine. In a convention of ICG delegates there was only one dissenting voice to the res olutions of instruction. W. F. Story, of the Chicago Times, is about to introduce a novel feature in western jour nalism. It will consist in publishing a sheet adapted in size to the amount of news t he published. If 90 columns are wanted, 90 columns will be' printed, and if 30 columns arft wanted but 30 columns will be printed Un der the new system the Tines is liable to vary in size every day in the week. This is the true idea, and one which in time is likely to be extensively imitated. It is a great mis take that the size of a paper should assist in adding to its importance and influence. Most of the papers of the present day are twice as 'arge as they should be. A paper should not be judged by its square area, but its contents. Some of the San Francisco dailies are notable examples of " waste" journalism. The Call, Bulletin, Altu and Examiner contain live col umns of worthless material to one column which anybody reads. It is s much type, pa per and labor lost. The Associate Press dis patches generally occupy five or six columns, and an experienced condenser could boii each column down to a few paragraphs, and no one would inias the superfluous rubbish which was thrown aside. Ideas which could beexpressed iu a single sentence are sometimes amplified into a column, and not one man in fifty who picks up the paper will read them. All this is done to fill up a certain amount of space. Some papers which really contain bright things are not read because most people cannot spare the time to hunt through so vast an expanse of type to find the go )d that may be stowed away here ami there. It is like hunting for a four-leaf clover iu a quarter section of land. The papeis which are to cleave their way to the front in American journalism will be the small ones. The New York Sun is about half the size of the Alia Califumian; enough said. The Paris Figaro is a little diminutive sheet, but to the Parisian at breakfast it sparkles like a diamond; he could not begin the day's busi ness or pleasures without it; he reads every line of it, perhaps, in fifteen minutes, and spends the balance of the day digesting and enjoying it. Story has always been noted at one of the most original of American journal ists, and he has taken many departures from the common rut. He never made a new move yet but that his jealous, old fogy competitors predicted failure; yet for the past tweury-five years he has never made a new move that has not advanced his interests and increased his prestige. This new departure is likely to be more successful than any. BRIEF MENTION. Lettie Guy of Syracuse, N. Y., gives whist ling concerts, which are well patronized. It is difficult far a man to start out with a middle name and succeed in building up a rep utation on both sides of it. A colored man named Charles Hookor was frozen to death in the snow while c irrying the mail over the mountains from Yreka to Salem. Brighain Youug was first to solve the gein puzaie with biteon wives. He had very little trouble with Nos. 13, 14 and 15 so long as the Gentiles let him alone. Mason's valley is about twenty-four miles long, and is now the principal source of hay supply for Bodie and the adjacent section. Alfalfa is mainly rained. One of those men who cheat others n min ing shares and make their living by swindling, was shot dead in Leadville a week ago. Death liives a mining shark. Ex. When a boy falls and peels the skin off his nose the first thing he does is to get up and yell. When a girl tumbles and hurts herself badly the first thing she does is to get up and look at her dress. S. M. Pillsbury, Jr., aged 30, committed suicide at Boston, on Monday, by a guillotine instrument, so constructed with weights, grooves and pulleys as to insure death a per fect engine of destruction. Cause, temporary insanity. The sale of the Ward Company's shaft and ground to the Bullion and Julia Companies for $400,000, payable within one year from date, has been perfected. Due notice will be given the Ward stockhclders when they are to re ceive their dividend. Fbakk Leslie's Popular Mobthly for May. This periodical fully maintains its well-deserved reputation, and, in the present number, we find a rare display of admirable articles, stories, sketches, essays, poems, arid a miscellany remarkable for its comprehen siveness. The opening article "Alexander II., Czar of Russia," by Alfred H. Guern sey is most interesting and replete witl information. There are seventeen excellent illustrations. "The Three Alpine Tunnels," with special reference to the Mont Cenis, will be read with great interest. It is pro f usely illustrated. An article on "Nuts and Nut-bearing' Trees"; one on "Cotton in the Coast and Upland Fields of South Caro lina," and "Quinine Land," by N. Robin son, are among tne prominent ieatures oi the number. In the department of fiction Etta W. Pierce's story, "Not Guilty," is continued, and there are some excellent short stories by I.V. Crawford, Thomas Ar cher, etc., etc. There sre several sketches descriptive of adventures, persons and places, admirably written. There are poems of unnsnal merit, many of them illustrated "Mill Songs," by Julia GoJdard, are liter ary and artistic gems. The miscellany is more than ordinarily abundant, and highly entertaining and instructive. There are 128 pages quarto in the number. The illustra tions number over 100, and there is a hand some colored frontispiece "An Amusing Novel." The price of a single copy is only '25 cents; a year's subscription, $3; eix months, $1 50. Sent postpaid. Address Frank Leslie's Publishing House, 53, 55,57 Park Place, New York. The Truckee Republican makes the follow iugsuggestion in regard to tunneling the crown of the Sierra: "A tunnel of from eight to eleven miles would enable the trains to bur row under the storm-belt. There are similar tunnels in Europe which are not half as neces sary. The difference in the expense of ope rating the road would ere long repay the cost of the investment. Sooner or later the Sierra must be tunneled; then why not agitate the matter while the present blockade renders agitation pertinent?" Speculator to old miner iu Leadville, hand ing him a bag of samples; "Gold quartz or carbonates?" the honest miner, turned it over in his hand indifferently, took out his knife and picked at it awhile, and then asked, "Got much of it?" "Thousands of tons," answered the other eagerly. "How much do you sup pose she'll run?" Can't tell nnthin' without an assay." "But you can guess, can't yow; you can guess?" "Oh, yes, anybody kin guess; but a guess is liable to be extravagant Nw, I should say but, mind ye, I may go over the mark I should s-a-a-a-y (turning the speciaien over again and holding it up to the light), I should s-a-a-a-y that if ye can save the gold in this and catch the silver and not waste the lead, that it. mightruu about well, aboat $2 to the county." Only four States now elect a Governor ev ery year; sixteen once in two years; two once in three years, and sixteen once in four years. Three elect their Senates annually, eleven nee in two years, one once in four years. Eight States elect their houses of Representa tives for one year, and thirty-two for two years. Maine, Massachusetts, Rhode Island and Connecticut, are the only States which eleot a Governor every year. The Reno Gazette indulges in the following: "Spring is here now, sure enough. The little red ants have resumed their tunneling opera tions, the black beetle may be seen lying upon his back engaged iu the laudable effort to get on his legs again, the bees are busily buzzing about, the house tiy has made his appearance, and the judicious spider is spinning a web to catch him. Mr. Fletcher, the father of the clever yonng author of " Kismet " and " Mirage," who was recently jilted by an ignoble English noble man, is quoted as saying: "I would rather see my daughter married to an American black smith possessing the attributes of a true man, than to any scion 'of the British nobility lack ing them."
