Ill rues the Und, to h utenlug ills s prey! When wealth accumulates, and men drcax. Here are eight men whose aggregate paaessiona show a wonderful prosperity of the people, especially of these riht people, says the New York Journal: John D. Rockefeller, $135,000,000; W. W. Astor, $120,000,000; Cornelius Vanderbilt, $90,000,000; Jay Gould, $75, 000,000; Heory M. Flagler, $60,000,000; Charles Pistt, $55,000,00; Wm. K. Vanderbilt, $50,000,000; John Flagler, $40,000,000; total $625,000,000. Then comes Fred V. Vanderbilt, George Vanderbilt, William Aator, and Louis C. Tiffany, each worth $35,000, 000, or worth an aggregate wealth of $140,000,000. These are followed by C. P. Hunting son, Leland Stanford, Andrew Carnegie, Mrs. Elliot F. Shepherd, Mrs. Y. H. Vanderbilt, Henry Hilton, H. Victor Newcomb, S. W. White, Levi P. Morton, Augustus Belmont, J. Hood Wright, and Jas. B. Colgate, each of whom is worth $30,000,000, and when taken together, these twelve persons are worth $360,000, 000. Then follows ths list of those who are worth $25,000,000 each, whose names are as follows: Eugene Kelly, Wm. Rhine lander, John Mackay, Ruasel Sage, Theo dore Havemeyer, Wm. Rockefeller, Oliver H. Payne, Robert Geelot, Ogden Goelot, Auatiu Corbin, A Stewart Webb, W. D. Sloane, Pierre Lorilllsrd, Robert Chose- brough, Cslvin S. Brice, G. P. Morrisini and Henry Villard, in all seventeen, whose combined wealth is $425,000,000. These are followed by a list of nineteen names who are worth $20,000,000 each, as follows: H. O. Havemeyer, Robert Bonner, H. O. Armour, Piermont Mor gan, Louis Lorillard, Mrs. H. McK. Twombley, William C. Whitney, Louis Morgan, Mrs. Bradley Martin, John Jcob Astor, Jr., W. J. Askell, the Misses Furneas, John H, Stsrio, Darius C. Milla, Chas. L Tiffany, Anson Phelps Stokes, Henry G. Marguand, John D. Sleyback aod Henry Hart- an aggregate wealtk of these nineteen persons of $330, 000,000. Here are sixty persons whose wealth combined amounts to the beautiful sum of $1,930,000,000. This shows a very prosperous condition of the last sixty three million people of our country. Tb entire circulation for the United States is only $1,400,000,000, while sixty citizens of this country have possessions aggregating nearly a half million dollars more than the whole amount of money in circulation for the use si the entire people. Is it any wonder these great barons can control the money marketa of the country, and, in controlling the money market, they dictate tbe price of all other commodities? In addition to the eixty foregoing named persons, there is given a list of twenty-two parsons who are each worth $10,000,000, an twenty-seven who are worth $5,009,000, and fifty-seven "wha are each worth $3,000,000. In all there are one hundred and sixty-six persons whose combined wealth amounts to $2, 456,000,000. This is certainly very strong evidence of the prosperity of our country, especially of the liat published in the Journal. Tbe amassing of such fortunes into th band of a few people puts into their bands power alike dangerous to liberty and prosperity of the masses. When a few of these barons unite their wealth for any purpose, they are enabled to carry ont that purpoie, and since human na ture lead most persons to do that which iatb greatest advantage to self, these few may not only use the power of their wealth to gratify their whima and pleas ore, but they will and do use that wealth to enhance their power, and, as wealth is power, aod has alwaya been an oppress ive powir, when masaed in any great sums, the oppression of the masses is not difficult to ateount for, with such as- tonishing accumulations in th hands of th few.

Tb " Bone Journal says it waa unanimously sgisofl that tb Society exert it influence In eollectiog and preparing article for lb exhibit, and two manager were ap pointed for that purpose with authority to tot for th Board. The Board earnest ly requests th Commissioner of th Mvaral counties to oo -operate with it in th matter and tab immediate action. In a recent conversation Colons! Tom Ochiltra of Tsxaa said i " What s hor rible mistake the goldbtip mad whan they ooonted on tiring oat tb silver Senators. Why, Ed.

I tell you when yoo. try to pat that crowd to sleep jrOss have undertaken tb biggest job dm vr bad an hia hands. I'll bet on tb pokor crowd every trio." There seems now to be no desire to conceal the fact that the President ie dictating at all point the legislation of Congress, says the San Francisco Bul letin. So easily, apparently, may our liberties be snatched from us that thera seems to be a general acquiescence in a high crime and misdemeanor. It is true people hav not yet been deprived of their possessions st the point of the bay onet, or thrown into prison without cause, or slaabed or ridden down by cav alry for venturing to give expression to their opinions. But we ar traveling on that road all the same in a careless and jaunty manner, for all thess wrongs, and other won,' still alwaya com of del po tiara and th boe-man power. In tbe methods of transacting th pub lid business which ar growing upon u there will soon be bo necessity for de bate in Congress or any deliberation thsrt. The way to obtain a new law will be to get on order for it from tb White Hon, and if Congress will not obey, it will not receive any offices for its friends or relatives. Tb great White Father of Rossis doe not enjoy a wider sweep of power than Grover Cleveland is usurping. TBI ton of ax-Senator Fair recently married a " woman of the town" at San Francisco, and it is said tha ax-Senator ha disinherited him for doing to. In speaking of th matter tb Reno Gaaette remarks : " Th boy is said to baa worth las gin guxzlar. Tb Gazette never of bit honored dad being scouted 6f heard drunksnneas, bat it baa heard other sins enough laid at hi door to justify tb conclusion that tb ball h is now having ha been earned and paid for many times over." Correspondence of Ths Beoord. Cbicaoo, October 26, 1893. Visitors will be admitted to Jackson park for an indefinite period after Oct. 30. Tb length of time will depend upon the weather and the popular de mand. Tbis course was officially de termined upon by the coucil of admin istration. Oct. 30 la to be observed as Columbus day and not closing day, a tlia council formerly proclaimed. It made the correction in tbe following statement, which wag accompanied by an order in accordance therewith: "The couucil having this day couaid ered its order passed the 16th inst., predicated oo tbe resolution emanat ing from tbe board of direotorg of tbo World' Columbian exposition touch ing the designation of a day as "Co lumbus day" and having been informed by several members of the directory that it waa not the intention of that bodv that ita resolution should be so construed as to provide for a closing day, but simply to make provision for designation of Oat. 30, 1893, as Co lumbus day," and to be to celebrated accordingly within tbe exposition grounds at Jackson park, and that aucb day should not be treated or regarded aa the actual closing of the exposition or th park, but that visitors might be admitted thereafter for an Indefinite period so long ag tbe popular demand aod tbe weather conditions should Itielifw it V 4 J The admission fe for the November day will, tbe officials say, be fifty coots at it it now. All purely complimen tary passes will be oat off. The com plianentariea expire by limitation Oct. 30 and they will not be renewed. The obligation under which they were iasued Is considered to have been satis fied. Tbe full term and monthly photographic passes will simply be extended. No now ones will be printed. Tbo coupons will have been exhausted, but tbe cover with the photo will be sufficient. Workinens' passes will be Issued as usual. Th photograph passes are held by exhibitors, concess ionaires, employes, and officials whose presence is necessary on the grounds. While all exhibitors may begin pack ing up Oct. 31, thera will be no special effort to hasten their departure. They will bs furnished neither with electric lighta nor guards to assist In working at night. "There is no oocaaion for ns going to tbis extra expense," said President Higginbotham. "Tha exhibitora can have an eight bour day, and that is enough." If tha crowds come in large numbers an effort will be made to entertain them. Bands of music will be provi ded and many of tha concessions will remain open, ins restaurants, elec tric lannchea, intramural road, and others will do business as long as it is profitable. Up on the Midway there probably will be an exodus tbe moment tbe fair officially cloae. The Javanese, Daho- meyaos, Samoans and like attractions, the people in which are unaccustomed to cold weather, are already anxioua to go. According to tbe terma of their agreement with tbe Exposition com pany most of the Midway buildings wer to be removed within forty-five days, but President Higlnbotham said tbey would be granted an extension of time in case it was found desirable for them to continue in November. Although all oontracts expire on tha last day of October tbe exposition company will be in control of the ground and can close up every conoeasion if It see fit. For tbis reason terms will have to be made before business cao be transaoted. The Ferris wheel probably will remain an attraction on Midway after other attractions ar gone. - Tbo retention of the World's Fair building as tbey ar for several years Is question bslng argued by member of tb South Park Board of Commiss ioners. So far tbe members have not been officially notified of tbo wishes of tbe Counoil of Administration. And at there has been no meeting of the board to consider tbe matter no decision can bo given. Each member of the board has some view, but they are not har monious. On one tbing they are all agreed, and that Is, if tbe buildings The San Francisco Call aaya ths Neva da Southern Railroad may yet assume more important proportions, if present plans are carried to successful fruition. Isaac E. Blake, president and owner of tha road, says that arrange ments are being perfected to build about 100 miles more to the 30 odd now com pleted, with the object of finally reach ing and connecting with the Utah Cen tral road for Salt Lake City, thue creating tha new line long desired by Los Angeles snd Southern Cslifornia. Mr. Blake says that on the line of the road, twenty miles of Vanderbilt and just about on the State line, is a great deposit of nitrates which will prove to be a source of wealth - whsn railroad transportation is afforded. At Good Springs, further into Nevada, are exten sive and rich lead ores, and at the point where the next 100 miles will terminate are the coal deposits. It is understood that an attempt will be mads to secure money for constructing a section of the road by a novel plan. Mr. Blake will undertake to sell in Southern California 16,000 tons of coal at $5 a ton, to be de livered five months after the contract it let for building the road, collecting the cash in advance and giving collateral se curity for the delivery of the ooal. Mr. Blake owns all the coinpany'a stock and intends to retain control after he parts with some of hit holdings. The road will be bonded for $4,600,000. A dispatch from Los Angeles says that President Blake of the Nevada Southeru Railway is in the city. This road ex tends now from Goff station, on the Atlantic and Pacific Railway, a few milea west of Needles to the Vanderbilt and New York mining districts. Mr. Blake makes thetbsolute statement that the road will be at once extended with all the energy and dispatch possible to the coal fields of Southern Utah. This statement is coupled with no reser vations whatever. . The company has secured the right of way and the means to carry ita road for one hundred miles farther than its pre sent terminus, and, that will bring the cars into the center of the coal fields of Utah. Los Angeles will then have fuel of a very superior quality laid down here for $6 a ton at the most. The line will also pass through a region where yaat cW"- .s-i i . ii. . ... on the continent are to be found. ' Experts who ffave been over the ground stats that there are only two other places in the United States where ore can be found in quantities that is suited to the production of the finest kind of Bessemer steel. This will bring the road within such a comparatively short distance of Salt Lake City that its extension to that point will be but a question of a few months. The Mohave Miner aays it is the in tention of the Nevada Southern people to continue their road on to a connection with the Rio Grande Western. This will give the Rio Grande an outlet to the Pacific coast through a country of un surpsssed scenery. The Ssn Francisco Argonaut recently contained ao editorial on the annexation of Utah to Nevada, from which the fol lowing is an extract : " Nevada is all right. The brethren of tbe East and South need not concern themselves sbout her future. She sup ports her government and is competent to manage ber own affairs. If she is a rotten borough,' she is no rottener than others which make greater pretensions to virtue, and her Senators, ss a rule, have been abler men than the average. Nevada requires time for her growth. She has been the victim of her exclusive attention to her mining industry. Immi gration and capital both take the line of least resistance, and Nevada hat been less attractive to them than other local ities which offer speedier rewards. But the State will have her turn. She is opulent in variety of soil and climate. As the other Pacific States become crowd ed her natural wealth will receive ade quate attention. Irrigation will redeem her soil from the sagebrush. Hen wheat aod vegetables, deciduous fruits and hemp, are the best in the country. In tbe southern districts coffee, tea, tobacco and cotton will be raised. She is alive with minerals. A State with such a eapital will, in due season, get population W. S. GODBE, President. DAVID YEABbLEY, Vire-Presldoni. E. HOLT, Sec'y t Treat urer TDE ME RIli 111 CO.

As far as he waa concerned "he would not hesitate," he said, "to go to the White House and cut Cleve land's throat," if it waa possible for him to do so. "The President," he con tinued, " could not come to his country and walk four miles into the country without being assassinsted." The man who made these remarks waa well dressed and not at all excited. Tbe Star pub lishes the statement in order to show what soma people now at tbe capital are thinking about. TBI INDIAN BURttAU. eonld be kept in good condition and without much expense they would be a valuable addition to tbo park. A dispatch from Lima, Pern, states that ths minister of finance has obtained a secret session of th House of Deputies and explained to the members the finan cial difficulties ot ths country. Th Senate appointed a special committee to investigate and to reoommsod an imme diate remedy. One result of th agita tion is tb passtge by tbe Hons of Dep uties of the first clause ot the bill re-establishing gold as the eorrenoy of the country, and prohibiting the import ation of silver ooins. The eountry has been flooded with Spanish and Mexiean ailver, and this step it is expected will put a stop to tneir importation. The annual report of the Commissioner of the Indian Bureau to the Secretary of the Interior says the advance in Indian school work during th year is eucourag inc.. The number of pupil enrolled th past year was 21,133, an increase of more than one thousand over 1892. The sum set apart for various religious bodies for Indian ednoation aggregates $502,635, During tbe last year cash payment were made to Indians aggregating $3,071,211, of which $975,147 was for services and articles purohassd from thsm, aod $2,096,063 in fulfilling treaties, interest, to. Th report shows that the several Indian tribes now have in the United States Treasury trust funds amounting to $24,067,861. The Commissioner sub mitt estimates tor th year ending June 30, 1895, aggregating $6,931,756, which is $193,639 leu than tb present appro priation. Many Cceur d' Alene mines are resum ing under reduced wages. The last vote on the labor question in Virginia City, resulted in a majority for $4 a day. The Colfax Sentinel says: Ths North Fork of tbe American river, California, is alive with men, all seeking their fortunes. The Bald Mountain Consolidated Min ing Company st Dcadwood, Dakota, has sold ita interests for $1,000,000 to an English syndicate. There is to be no let up to the gold excitement in Alberni, British Columbia, the latest find being a vein of free gold from four to six feet wide, in which gold is visible to the naked eye. The Virginia Chronicle says a number of men have been put to work in the Justice mine drifting for the rich gold vein in the west ground which has been opened up to such goud advantage on the surface. At the annual meeting of the stock holders of the Consolidated Virginia Mining Company a resolution was adopted to supply James G. Rule with men and tools to search for ore on the 1100 foot level and allow him ten per cent of the ore extracted. There are so many idle men in Califor nia, and principally in the city of San Francisco, that thore is some talk of sending them to Yreka or Mariposa counties where they could go to work with pans, rockers and long toms and make from fifty cents to $4 a day. XjStsvs wiri.., M.i.iii VwUiMj Br- C, as to the mining prospects in tbe East Kootenay are even more satisfactory than recent reports gave reason to expect. Messrs. Ehridge and Hennessy, down from China creek, produce specimens of ore of wonderful weslth, which is raising high expectation in Victoria, Few people have an adequate idea of the number of Chinese engaged in placer and pocket mining in California. There are literally thousands of them, and they can be found in the hills and along the streams from the snow capped Siakiyous to the sandy boundaries of Sau Diego. They are industrious, frugal and generally I capable miners, and the amount of gold they have taken out is enormous. Eleven miners have arrived in this city from Alaska last week, and report having had a very hard time in the Yukon dis trict. They labored mostly on Forty-mile creek, a tributary of the Yukon, forty miles below old Fort Reliance and 1700 milea up from St. Michaels. They say that mining in Alaska is like a lottery some strike it, others do not an experi ence that holds good in other countries than Alaska. Ths hardships that beset mining in parts of Alaska are undeniably great. San Francisco Mining Press. Miners are ssisl to be leaving Butte, by the hundred for South Africa. One week, recently, 400 tickets were sold to partiss bound far the mining region of that distant oountry. Ths price of tick ets is $128. These psrties, from all ac counts are going to a country far more miserable than the United States is even at the present time. The mining there is all performed by natives, who reoeive 75 cents a day for their labor. Nearly all the mineral country is owned by few English companies. The only whites employed are the foremen aod superintendents. -AN IMMENSE STOCK OF- Bedsteads, Mattresses, Chairs, Spring Cots, etc. HEADQUARTERS FOB SUGARS, TOBACCOS, CANNED GOODS. ?rospeeters and Miners' Supplies POWDER, FUSE AND CAPS.
