He ivas at war wrh nearly all the Southern generals, and consequent ly meddling with their own special bus iuess. Tjilue is u squabble amuiig the faith ful in St. Louis cycr the reception of the President. The Hendiicks club was first in the field with a committee. Mayor Fancis has ignored this club and nppointed another committee. Xow the State central committee through its chairman has issued a cali for a meet ing so as to h ive its wsy about the re ception. The report comes thai two or three committees are out collecting luiuls, and the citizens a.-e tiuabls to tell which has the genuine list u4 on which to fiibcibe. It is now certain that the losses among cattle last winter by dorms and severe weather in Montana is ixucb greater than the huge ci-timattis were at that time admitted. The ranges have been thoroughly traversed and cattle men admit that losses will in no ea-e be less than filly per cent, while in mauy instances they will run as hih as teveniy-tive.

Tbe Jctftrson City Tribune lias sized up the situation exactly as if ijardj thu assessment ot property in Missouri, and si caks tbe ruth in sucb plain, unvarn ished terms that we cannot 1 drain from reproducing the at title in hopes that some one may he benefiHed by its pub lication. "It may be safely said that property ! in this state, if we except the eiiy of St. Loui?, is scarcely assessed at hall its value Men who consider thetubcl vi-.s good citizens eoninul perjury with 11s much regularity as the reason for as sMJing property arrives. (Jinnd juries never examine asse-siuei.t l:s's, al though required to do m by law, and by common consent it is understood that any man may commit pe-jury in relation to the value or quantity ol hi property with impunity. The asscisinetit ol real estate is usu ally much fairer erty, because peisonal property is something that can he hid from tbe assessor. As a general rule the asses sor is a man reasonably wi-U posted on the value of teal estate and live stock, anil there i- no uxiuse ior a had assess ment on p opeity of this class. Hut men whose wealth consists chiefly of money and securities, raiely pay a just proportion r.f taxes. There are loop holes through which they can crawl in tbe event and they are too conscien tious to make and swear to a fale re turn. Government bonds and grci n backs canntt he taxeil, and combina tions have been formed aud avenues opened for exchanging taxable securi ties for non-tasablc securities about the date cf ns-cisnicnt. This eril, which is perhaps the great est one complained ot, can be corrected by jiidici-.tts legislation. Merchan lise is reached by taxing the greate-t amount a merchant owns between two dates, usually six months. It' tins same ru'e was applied to personal proj erty sham lnvsstmen'.s would not he made and there would be no clruu'c to avoid just taxation except by perjury. If every person in the state would make a fair retui 11 of his property to the assesor, a healthy iMcre.ise in the rate of taxation would at once follow. If it requires S'JO.OOt) to meet the an nual expenses ot" a county, a certain levy must be made on the total valua tion, and if one man makes a correct list of all he possesses aud his neighbor holds back threc-fouiths of property, the honest man bears a burden which i wrongfully imposed upon him. For some reason a large per cent, of people do not i-eem to consider that they are committing a crime when they return a talse list It is a fact beyond dispute that plenty of men cm be found who ate .strictly hones' in ctery iespcet the day the assessor calls on lliem. Through force of habit and the example of others, they withhold properly and make false allidavit. As matters stai.d the burden of tax ation is not evenly distributed. The man with a small farm or house and lot possesses nothing which can be hid from the assessor, aud whether he is disposed to be hone.-t or not, matters but little, because all the property he owns will b.e assessed. l!ut it is quite i different with the man who owns money and securities alone. The temptation i far greater to hide 10,0!.0 than a cow and the opportunities more numerous. The law, to be tine, applies with eq.ul gfj fjg Ifflgy flJJJ, JgJ YOU. iurcc 10 ootii, uui (jiiciiitisiiiiii-cs me against the poor man, and tbe rich man has reason to believe that the law pro vuling penalties fo'r returnii g a false assessment is never enforced. A great m.inj, and perhaps all t!'c evils incident to faNe nses-iii"iit list-, could be abated if grand juries and courts would take 1 old of the nutter. If one or more men in ivcry county of the state should be indicted for perjury and their pioperly asfesscd at Hirer times its value, the lesson would be a wtolcsome one.

Two hundicd jcars ago in China there was ju-t s'ich a craze about nat ural gas as we have in this eountry to day Gas weds were sunk with as much visti and vigor as the celestials wcro capabl; ot, but owing to a gas explosion that killed several millions of people and toro up and destroyed a large district of country, leaving a large inland sea, known on Ihe mips as Luke Foo Chang, the boring ot any more gas wells was then and there prohibited by law. It seems, according to the Chinese history, that many large and heavy pressure gas wells were sunk quite near to each other. Gas was lighted a3 soon as Mruck, as is done in this country. It is stated that one uell with its unusual prcssuie, by induc'ion or ba k draught, pulled down into the earth the burning gas of a smaller well, resulting in a dreadful explosion of a large district, destroying the inhabitants thereof. Lake Fee Chang rests 011 this district. The same catastrope is imminent. In this country nnle.-s the lans restrict further devclou-nients in boring so many wells. Should a similar explosion occur there will bu such an upheaval us will dwarf the most terrible earthquake ever known. The" country along the gas belt from Toledo through Ohio, Ind'ana and Kentucky will be lipped up 10 the depths of 1,200 to 1,600 feet and flopped over like a pancake, leav ing a charm through which the waters of Lake Erie will come howiing down, filling the Ohio and Missi-sippi valleys, and blotting lhem out. forever.

Townsencl, Wyatt & Co.J CORNER FOURTH AND FELIX STREETS, ST. JOSEPH, - - 3VLO- Tobacco Consumption. Last year thu losses by reported fires in the United States reached a total of $120,000,000, or an ayeriigo monthly loss of $10,000,000. This is regaided as an enormous wa-te and is largely due to incetidiarism und carelessness. How to reduce the amount so lost is a matter of constant study. Legislatures, local governments, insurance compan ies, make regulations and exercise tbe greatest care to prevent fires. And et the loss thev occasion is $GO,000,000 per annum less than the amount paid by ; uejlH consumers for clears, and .$80,500,000 Turttwjs.. le.sstl-.au thu total cost of tobuico con sumed in smoke. Last ywar tax was paid npon 3,510 833,333 cigars. The average smoker is content with a cigar worth 830 per thousand or one that retails at 5 eents. On that basis there annually goes up in smoke 8180.000,000, or $15,000,0(0 every month, or half a million dollars everyday.
