The Boddy family had settled upon the public lands in Oregon and were among the first vic tims of the Modoc war. The husband of the claimant, her two sons and son in-law were murdered and their prop erty taken. For this she put in a claim which the senate voted to allow. A dispatch cf the 18th says; Thomas Porterhouse Oohiltree's resolution, sym pathizing with Prince Bismarck, for the loss of bis bated countryman, Herr Las ker, promises to make that Texas states man a greater celebrity then ever. Some days ago, Ochiltree said he offered the resolution for Bismarck's especial bene fit, knowing it would make the German statesman feel ugly. The house would probably not have passed it had the members thought of Lasker's relation to the German ministry, as it was plain the resolution would bring about a bad feeling, if not actual mischief. This matter, if there is any truth in the story that Bismarck has sent Ochiltree's res olution back to America, has drawn the attention of members of Congress to the feeling aroused in Germany by their reckless t hreats of retaliatory legislation for the American hog. Secretary Fre linghuy sen's admonition to go slow has aot had the effect of stopping the talk upon the subject, and until Thursday, when it was discovered the pork pro ducers were not in favor of retaliation, the demagogues in the lower House have kept up their fus Hade. Thursday Emory A Storrs,representing practically the entire of eastern and western cattlemen, appeared before the House commerce committee with a plea indor sed by clients for settling the foreign embargo on pork, which will probably solve that vexed question. Storrs stat ed the pork producers of the country were unanimously opposed to retaliation and instead recommened an inspection of all exported meat by the collector of customs, the cost to be borne by the shippers. He presented a short bill in which it was provided that the inspec *ion shall not be compulsory, thus avoiding the constitutional questions. He said France would open her ports to inspected meat within two weeks after the passage cf the bill. This bill will probably be favorably reported. Criminal Notes.

In the criminal court at Gallatin,Mo., on the 11th, the state's attorney dis missed the case against Frank James and Charles Ford, charged with the Blue Cut robbery in 1881. The attor ney submitted a statement that owing to the refusal of Governor Crittenden to pardon Dick Liddel, the state was de prived of his testimony, and also valu able corroborative evidence. Hence he would not be able to make a clear case. He stated the case at Gallatin against James would also be dismissed, thus vacating all the indictments in Missou ri.

St. Lonis, Chicago and Cincinnati will have delegations here to endeavor to secure the convention to one of those cities. The indications are that the convention will be held in the west and probably at St. Louis. Gov.
