"I know you are ever constant,' wrote a Carson husband to his wife at Santa Cruz. "Yes; constantly taking buggy rides with a stock broker from San Francisco." The Carson City Coal Gas Company has presented John Kaneen, Superin tendent of the Virginia Gas Company with an elegant cane. Geo. Tuny, of this city, acted as master of the presen tation ceremonies. Beware of the Alta Deal. There is every indication that an other swindling deal is contemplated in Alta. With the memory of the odorous swindles which have so fre quently been perpetrated in the mine, it would seem superfluous to warn the public of another boom in the rotten and worthless stock. WUh hardly a pound of ore in the mine the managers have managed to unload their stock over and over again upon the public at high fig ures and the loons bite as readily as ever. The Post sounds a note of warn ing : Dummy manipulators will direct the coming Alta deal. The real manipula tors do not want to be known in the matter, or held responsible for what oc curs; hence their withdrawal from the Board of Directors, and their contem plated trip to the East. When the deal collapses and the money is gathered in we suppose telegraphic transfers" on New York will command a big premium. The probabilites are that the same class who have been taken in before will meet with their old experience. People who are too poor to subscribe for a daily newspaper lose a thousand dollars or so every year in stock dabbling. L. "THE VOICE! OF THE STARS." A Skull . tad CroHB Bone Bk. "The Voice of the Stars," a pamphlet published by - Prof. Grimmer of San Jose, has been left at the Appeal office for review. It is an astrological work and claims to foretell future events by i stody of the movements of the stars. It shows by quoting from history that the plagues of the world happened when certain planets wereiu perihelion. (k reading the book one is perfectly astounded at realizing how certain great events in the world's history are in fluenced by the positions of the planets. If the author had simply contented him self with a review of historical facts his buok would have been startling sen sation, lie branches out in a prophetic vein and announces that in 1880 a ter rible plague will devastate the earth and sweep away 15,000,0-0 souls. He also puts down Grant as President and , goes on to snow mat issi v. ia oe toe most eventful year of the world's history. The United States will te overrun with leperous Chinamen spread ing disease and death and there will be hell in the heavens and the earth and every city m the Union will lose about two-thirds of its inhabitant s by lire, tempest and pestilence. The author's description of the general state of af- fairs read like De Quincy's "Phantas magoria." Bloody wars, showers of fire, howling lunatics and armies of murderers and assassins running loose over tne country are tne least oi tne horrors of the situation. The failure of his prophesies stamps the book as unre- I liable and the language is so direful that anyone who believed in the work would go crazy. Such publications, while looked upon as the harmless work of lunatics, are nevertheless far from harmless, as superstitious people in whose hands they may fall are often frightened into sickness by placing im plioit belief in the arguments and asser tions advanced. iThe ((naker Poet. The Chronicle is growing sarcastic over the recent attemut of the Enter prise to wax poetical at uarheld s ex pense. Tiie Chronicle does not seem to fully understand the methods by which such poetry is constructed. It is not really poetry at all but a peculiar style of versification which has its origin in the Quaker settlements of Pennsylvania. The words "thee" and "thou" are sim- nlv introduced in a prose sentence and the lines cut into proper length bear a typographical semblance to b k verse which passes for true poetry with the untutored and stupid. The Enterprise verse reads as follows : "Garfield, thou art slain ! Translated into prose it reads: "Gar- nelu, you are slam, no medicine on earth can do you good." This style of verse can very properly be designated as Quaker poetry and is quite easy of con struction if you once ca'.ch the knack. Albion-Itirhniond. Fur ther steps in the Albion-Richmond litigation will be taken seon after the meeting of the District Court next week. What these steps will be remains to be seen. There are two more cases on the calendar here that might be forced to trial. The time has passed for trans ferring them to the United States Court. The papers are . all ready for an appeal to the State Supreme Court from the judgement in the case tried in July. It can be taken up right away, and the at torneys for the Albion inform us that they expect to get a hearing in the Su preme Court in October. It is asserted that there will be but few cases ahead of it on the Supreme Court calendar. President Robinson and Counselor Wood will be up from San Francisco in about ten days. They will be joi ned here by Senator Stewart, who is now in the East. A legal move of some kind will be inaugurated at that time. SenlineL Change of Proprietorship. L. T. Olson, who has been with Mr. bbriner for nearly five years, has pur chased of Mr. Gregovich his entire interest in the Monarch Saloon. Mr. Olson, whose advertisement appears in another column, will enter the business with a large per cent, of old customers and a lively sprinkling of new ones. he reputation of the epot for pure iquors will be no way endangered by the new proprietor. No cats in Hawthorne. A Gil EAT HEALTH CESTEB. VI retain City an a f-tanitariani Resort. The Chronicle thus sets forth the claims of the Comstock as a sanitarium retreat: Stunted tourists from Boston; angular immigrants from Philadelphia: bilious wrecks from Chicago; enervated specu lators from St. Louis and' puffy Cock neys from Albion's sra-grit shore all agree in the verdict that here are the ruddiest children, the finest specimens of manhood and the loveliest women, whose swelling contour of form de mands no extraneous aid to perfect its symmetry. All that is really needed to insure perfect happiness here is an old- time whoop up of stocks, based on an actual bonanza. Now, as a matter of fact, there is no place in Nevada more unhealthy than Virginia City. The people, fa 1 on the vilest whisky known to the tr.ide and disease-impregnated swill milk, are constantly ailing, and doctors of every grade make two fortunes a year. In the winter rheumatism becomes epidemic and as one walks along C street an army of cripples obstruct the way. Nearly every man walks lame and as for .such diseases as pneumonia and bronchitis they have a mortgage on every man, woman and child in the city. A day when two fuuer.d processions do not file over the Gieger Grade is considered worthy of newspapt-r notice. Aside from the army of oor old rosy-nosed, whisky-uvereu inebriates, wno ar; marching on toward the Potters Field in the rear of the County hospital, there are scores of men lying hidden in back rooms patching up bullet holes in their carcases and trying to die of mountain fever that their death may be looked upon by their Eastern relatives with some degree of sympathy and respect. A Xew loI;je. "Talk is cheap," but in the earlier and less palpable stages of bummerism and uead-beatism it is sometimes profitable. Suggests the Homer Index : Let two or three "retired miners" (retired from work) go into Bo Jie and lay claim to u large interest in some valuable outside mining property that is being rapidly developed by muscle and moneyand let them add that the rascally company owning and developing such property owes them (the retired miners) large sums of money besides, and for which they intend commencing suit and at taching the property at once. Let thcui e ttend faithfully to these details and their Summer's supply of whisky is as sured and of course no one Aould ex pect them to work during the long and inclement Winter. The same means of obtaining a livelihood may also be re sorted to with some degree of success in Lundy, or any other camp, so that care be taken not to atte mpt the game in the same camp where the accused company is operating. The co-operative plan also works admirable in this line of business that is, by having a separate set of bummers in two differ, ent camps at once co-operating against the same property or company in a third camp. Railroad Rumor. A rumor has been in circulation for j some days to the effect that the Central Pacific is negotiating for the purchase of the Eureka & Palisade road. It is even asserted that the sale has already been closed. In this connection the visit of Supciintcndent Evarts to New York is mentioned as a significant cir. cumstance. The Sentinel has been un able to trace these rumors to any reliable source, and only gives them for what they are worth. With the chess-like movements in railroad matters, it is prepared at any time to hear of impor tant transactions and transfers and thinks the sale of the E. & P. to the Central Pacific would materially aid the latter company in holding the key to the railroad situation in Eastern Nevada. Eespeetably Conueeted. "Press,j' said a man who was trying to pass the ticket taker at the theater. "With what paper are you con nected ?" "The one across the street; I hold a mortgage on the office." He was shown a seat in the front row. Seveu Years. Yesterday Sheriff Williams brought down from Virginia the three burglars who robbed Manning's jewelry store on the 11th of July last. They are each sentenced to a seven years' term in the State Prison. There is a beautiful assortment of steel-keyed concertinas, price $8, at Uncle Harris', 221 Kearny street, be tween Sutter and Bush. THE W.4SHIXTOTS TIBLET. The Mtone - fatter' AIvertIoment to in a On. To-day Nevada's granite tablet to the Washington monument advertising the business of the stone-cutter who pol ished it will be shippsd by freight to Washington. All the talk about rep resenting Nevada with a suitable stone has gone ibr nothing, no one being found in the whole broad State of Ne vada who was willing to start the ball rolling with a dollarsubscription. It is a grand mistake to say that the stone is not a fair representative of the State, or at least a big portion of it. A majority of the people elected a parcel of men to the Legislature whose sole mission in the hulls of the capitol was to elect Col. Fair lo the Senate and pass his ixmunza relief bill. One object was unhappily consummated and the other was promptly knocked in the head by the Republican Governor. An appropri tion of $3J0 was made for a stone while thousands of dollars were squandered on extra and needless clerk hire and grant ing relief bills for the satisfaction of all the old, musty claims that had ever been kicked about the capitol since the first Territorial Legislature met. There is being erected in Washington a grand monument to commemorate the acts of a man who led the armies of a strug gling republic until the republic was free, and yet a Democratic Legislature, with a pretense of reform, gave a nig gardly $301) to represent the State by a tablet, while California is preparing a stone which will cost nearly $5,000. It is no sure thing that $-300 is not too much. A State bankrupted by railway extortions and bled year after year by swindling stock manipulators is hardly in a condition to give any more. As the thing now stands the $300 appropriated was not enough; the Governor went down into his private pocket to make good the deficiency, and the Lord only knows who will pay the freight. TIIK PftKMIE.T. Washington, August 30 1:30 a. m. Dr. Boy n ton says that while there has been no material gain in the Presi dent's strength.there has been a marked improvement since the recent crisis. lie now takes food with as much relish as at any time during his illness. No marked change is expected at once. "All we can reasonably expect," he says, "is that the patient will hold his own a few days. If he makes even a slight improvement it will be perfectly satisfactory." The Doctor says he has not noticed any symptoms of another crisis. The prospects for his final re covery are very fair, but in a case of that kind, no one can say positively that the patient will recover. There fore he could not make any definite pre diction on that point. Last Saturday morning the President was at his worst. Nearly all hope of his recovery had gone. Dr. Hamilton lingered after the morning dressing of the wound and made the discovery that the volks of eggs, which had formsd part of the enemata for several day; had not been assimilating thoroughly, if at all, and were poisoning the system. Without waiting to make known hi3 discovery or to consult with his associ ates, he rushed to a drugstore and pur chased a supply of powdered charcoal. He immediately administered an injec tion containing a large proportion of charcoal. The effect was apparently al most immediately, and the incident marked the turning point in the Presi dent's condition. There is scarcely any doubt that the presence of this undi gested mass was the cause of the gland ular affection which came so near ter minating the life of the President. Exfxutive Mansion, 2:30 a. m. No material change has occurred in th? President's condition since last report. He is sleeping well. The wires being down no further news than the above has come from the White House. Out With the Aame. The Chron ide of last night says: A prominent business man of this city is charged with having assaulted and cruelly beaten a respectable married woman living in the southeastern part of town, on Friday last A Chronicle reporter to-day called on the injured woman and found her in bed, severely wounded. The matter is to be brought into the courts, when the details of the affair will be published.
