, Concerning the window tax, at ne
lime levied in England, a auarrel has
inaugurated between two of the San
Francisco papers. One ofthese journals
asserts that the tax was levied upon all
windows. The other as confidently as
serts that it was only levied upon win
dows of a certain' height and width. To
our certain knowledge, the tax was lev-
on all windows, and whoever visits En
gland now may see, if he will take the
trouble to look about him, many scars
upon the sides of houses showing where
the windows were bricked up, in order
to escape the tax. The effect of the'tax
was that while it lasted windows were
frequently closed up in its way, and
when new houses were built care was
taken to put in as few windows as pos
sible. It was a very vexatious i inpost,
and the people of England were glad to
get rid of it. We got rid- of it by get
ting rid of the country, embarking to a
land where the light of day was not
A - Political Crime."
Mr. Scoville, Guiteau's counsel, says
the Bulletin, so far has been doing ap
parently, his duty as an attorney in the
criminal case in which he is engaged.
But it is now said that he intends to
make of the assassination a political
crime. "There is more of politics in
the case than most people imagine," he
is reported to have uttered. In mon
archical countries a simular crime would
be political to the extent that it would
be high treason, punishable with death.
In this country it is not high treason,
which, under the Constitution, is con
fiaed to the offense of taking up arms
against the Government. It is simply
murder, as the assassination of Lincoln
was murder, and as such was reco
nized, even to the execution by the
military of the convicted malefactors.
How Mr. Scoville expects to make of
Guiteau's act a political crime is not
seen.- Certainly the confession of Gui-
teau does not convey any such idea.
"The Stalwart chasm ws responsible
for the matter, and the blame shall be
placed where.it belongs if I can secure
that result," says Mr. Scoville. Does
that gentleman mean to abandon the
plea of insanity ? Or was it the " Stal
wart chasm" that drove Guitean to his
act that was one of insanity ? Guiteau
had a personal grievance against the
late President, and, therefore, after days
of deliberation, he killed Lis selected
victim. That was not treason. That
was simply murder. But Mr. Scoville
proposes to make of it a political crime.
A Sacramento paper offers to pay fifty
dollars for an acceptable Christmas story
to be not less than ten nor more than
fifteen columns Ions:. Each column of
typo according to its own computation,
will contain 1.600 words. An article
fifteen columns loner would therefore
contain 24,000 words, which furnished
at fifty dollars would be four and four-
fifths words for a cent The extrava
gance of tbe Sacramento paper's offer is
really staggering whea its details are
figured out. It is by writing stories in
response to offers of this kind that the
literary guild make the money to buy
the fino houses which it is so well
known that they occupy in California.
The Silver State says : Immense
quantities of freight are now being
taken over the Central Pacific Railroad.
Railroad men say the load never did
more business in that line than it is do
ing at present Special trains, heavily
loaded, arrive and depart from here at
all hours of the day and nignt, the regu
lar trains not being sufficient to do the
work. So far it seems as if the south
ern roads had not in the least affected
the traflic on the Central Pacific, and
they are not likely to unless there

We are in receipt of an anonymous
communication. While the contents
maybe true enough and patent to all,
the letter is too personal for the Appeal

Howgate Indicted for Forgery.
Washington, Oct. 23. Captain
Howgate yesterday entered a plea of
not guilty td the charge of embezzle
ment and was committed in default of
$30,000. bail. .His counsel promised to
come into court with sureties on Mon
day. During the argument in the case
as to the amount of bail to be required
the District Attorney said: "The
amount embezzled as charged in the
indictment is $91,000. The indict
ment does not cover all the charges of
embezzlement. I do not think I am
violating any official confidence in say
ing that the Grand Jury has already in-
dieted him for forgery."
New York, Oct. 25. The Mayor to
day addressed a proclamation to the
people of the city reciting the perilous
condition in consequence of the unpre
cedented drouth and the deficiency of
the water supply. lie enjoins the peo
ple to practice economy in the use of
water to tide over the difficulties and
avoid the dangers which are immediate.
He says that without copious rains the
entire reserve supply will bo exhausted
in 16 days at the present rate of con
sumption. Hor-jan Secretary of the Treasury.
Washington, Oct. 24. The Senate
in executive session to-day confirmed
the nomination of Edwin D. Morgan of
New York as Secretary of the Treasury.
Many still believe ho will only remain
in the Cabinet until Winter, and then
Conkling will succeed him, and that
this is the programme. Doubtless
Morgan declined at first and wa3 in
duced to accept perhaps on these
Chicago, October 24. The Revo
lutionary Socialistic Party closed their
National Convention with a ball and re
ception Saturday night. At the meeting
resolutions were passed denouncing Ca
sinsm, and providing for the formation
of socialistic groups in cities. Schwab
and others at the meeting explained
the purposa of the party.
A Government for Alaska.
New York, Oct. 24. All of the
prominent men interested in Alaska
have agreed upon a bill embodying a
form of government for the Territory,
which will be introduced and pushed
through Congress at the next session. It
will provide for a simple organization,
with a court of record and an executive.
These Lying Auctioneers.
Last evening at an auction house on
Main street, a bronze clock was offered
for sale, and the crowd languidly ran
the bidding up to $1-50, amid the most
frantic endeavors on the part of the auc
tioneer to boom it to higher figures. He
shouted "going, going," nearly 100
times before he finally knocked it down
to a Teuton for $1.75. The purchaser
pulled out an old buckskin purse and
was about to pay for his bargain, when
suddenly a shade of suspicion passed
over his face, and grasping the clock he
held it up to his ear and shook up the
contents. There was no sound of tick
ing levers, or in fact any sort of mechan
ical response. Not a tam cent," he
shouted, slamming down the clock
