There has been rumor on the strifes
during the Inst few dnys to the effect that
the Telie Saunders mine had been sold to
a gentleman of the nnme of Brown from
Washington City. These rumors were in
pnrt true. To ascertain the facts we
called at the Registers office and there
learned that on the 23d ult.. Messrs. K.
P. and P. C. Sauailtrs sold and con
veyed their right and title to the A. H.
(founder's horn tract, on which the
Trbe Maunders mine is located, to John

has since sold the tame property to
Messrs. J. C. Spooner and H. P. Taylor,
of Wisconsin,
The amount received by the Messrs.
Bnundcra for the property mentioned in
the conveyance papers was $18,000,
and the amount stated as received by
Mr. John A. Kirk, was $21,000. These

GOT. RTONE INAUGURATED.
Home of tka Recommcntlatlona
From HI inanaaral Addrcaa,
Jackson, Miat., January 14. John
Manhal Stone wai inaugurated Gov
ernor yesterday. In 1875' when Amrt
wri Governor and resigned, and A. K.
Davti, colored, wai lieutenant governor
and was impeached, Stone was elected
the presiding officer of the senate, and
became Ames' successor, servine two
vears of his term, and one full term four
years by election.
The iuauirural address was lone.
Special reference is made to the re-union
nest May at Vicksburg (blue and gray.)
The Governor expressed a wish that
hearty co-operation be given the move
ment. He said the veterans of opposing
forces had long since laid down their
arms and were now following peaceful
avocations, and desired continued neace
and friendship. He expressed the belief
tnat congress would not pass toe ob
noxious election laws to apply to the
South, because of the lack of endorse
ment from the Northern people. He re
commended strongly the abolishment of
tne present convict leasing system, and
proposed that convicts be employed by
the State on State larms. He called the
attention of the legislature to the im
portnnt subject of the constitutional con
ventinn. and said it needed full and
careful deliberation and consideration.
A WHOLEHALE ROBBERY.
Cleveland. Ohio, Short a Matter of
3,000,000.
C me Alio, lanunrv 14. A Cleveland.
Ohio, special says thnt a morning paper
publishes n statement submitted by an
expert bookkeeper showing irregularities
in the accounts of the city of Cleveland
Hcgregating about $3.000,0K. Nearly
mi km. miurcj wa. puiu uui uy inc cur
without the approval of the council, al
though the State laws of Ohio distinctly
require thnt every claim be in the reeular
1'iuima ordinance.
The publication creates a ereat senna
tion. The most startling feature of the
report is a table showing that from
$1,000,000 to $2,000,000 were paid out
and asserted to have been paid out with
out any entry in any book to show to
whom the money was paid, or for what
purpose.
A public meeting will orobamv becalled
to take action if the council ignores the
disclosures contained in the report.
A FEW NEWS ITEMS.
A truck loaded with bars of silver but-
liou was passing through the streets of
New ork a lew davs ago on its way to
a vessel, to be shipped to Europe. A
tnicK log was prevailing at tne time, and
some thieves watched their chance and
stole two bars, which they sold to a junk
dealer. Roth the thieves and the buyer
thought they were bars of tin or soft
solder, and $14 was paid for what was
worth $2,000. The theft was traced up
and all parties concerned are now in cus
tody. Six well to do farmers living near lola.
Kansas, are under arrest for the murder
of Columbus Carter, in August, 18N8.
The prisoners belong to a band of regu
lators known as Land Leaguers. The
deceased was charged with a brutal
crime, was tried and acquitted, and
while on nis way Home was overtaken
bv the regulators and shot to death. So
the Harnwell tragedy has a precedent on
the other side ol the line.
The privilege of picking over the city's
dirt in New York has recently been let to
an Italian, who pays the city $1,552 per
week, or at the rate of $80,000 a year.
The value of the privilege consists in the
bones, rags, tin cans etc., all of which
have a ready market ; and also in the
possible finds of gold, silver, jewelry and
other valuables. This is how the world
lives, and the rag picker need not be a
pauper.
The cathedral of St. John and St. Fin-
bar, at Charleston, 0. C, which was

ceremonies of Inying the corner stone

Sundnv last by Arch hi. nop Gibbons, as
sisted by three biahops and a large num
ber of clergy. Bishop Hnid of North
Carolina was present.
The sons of the Prince of Wales are
soon to be elevated to Dukedoms, Prince
Albert Victor to be Duke of Cornwall,
and Prince George, Duke of York. They
were born with silver spoons in their
mouths; though indications arc that
those same spoons will carry some bitter
morsels to their lips. The times are not
hopeful to continued happiness for roy
alty. It is said that if England plunges bur
riedly into war with Portugal, she will
be much embarrassed by the sickness of
the troops at home, the first relied upon
lor offensive movements. More than half
the force, officers and men, are down
with the grip. But we have ne'er
known John Hull to stand back when
his blood was up; and it is at boiling
pitch now.
Canada seems disposed to precipitate
matters in the Bearing Straits troubles,
equipping war vessels of her own, strik
ing a hostile blow at American interests,
and then when blood bas been spilt, ex
pecting Great Britain to take up the
burden of quarrel. We incline to think
Canada count without ber host.

A GENUINE BLIZZARD.
Effect of the Recent Storm on
Western Railroads).
St. Pai l, lanunrv 14. A genuine bliz-
tard. the first of the senson, raged over
the Northwest the whole ot Sunday and
part of yesterday, knocking out tele
graph wires, delaying all trains and re
tarding tne operations of loggers in the
pineries. Dispatches from the principal
points in the Dakotas, Montana, and as
tar west as Spokane Falls, Washington,
arc to the effect that on tbe average
snow fell about ten inches on the level
and drifted badly, owing to strong windi
approaching a hurricane which pre
vailed.
Among the railroads a vast difference
in tbe effects of tbe storm is found. The
Manitoba, Northern Pacific and North
ern Wisconsin division of the Omaha all
report but little drilling. Sioux City or
tbe southern division of Omaha is suffer
ing trom the usual drifts. The river di
vision of Milwaukee was not effected,
hut tbe Iowa and Minnesota and Han
tines and Dakota divisions are bndli
drilted. The Minnesota and St. Loui'i
and Kansas City too are somewhat cov
ered up, the former rather worse than
the latter. Ihe worst drifts, however,
appear to be on those lines running
through northern Iowa nnd southwest
ern Minnesota.
A Striker's Victory.
Rkapino, Pa., January 14. The strike
in the nail factory of Brooke Iron Foun

to-day in victory for the men; the
firm agreeing to restore to them the 10
percent, reduction made in their wages
four and a half months ago. Some week
ago the men asked for this restoration
which tbe nrm then refused, and the
strike followed. To-day the firm also
voluntarily increased its puddlrrs' wages
to $3.75 per ton. By the settlement ol
the strike 250 men go back to work.

The Senate.
Washington, Jnntinrv 14. SENATE,
Tbe resolutions heretofore offered by
Mr. Call in relation to the claims of
Florida under the swamp land grant,
and in relation to alleged unlawful sclec
tions of land in Florida, were taken up
and Air. (.all addressed the senate upon
them. The burden of his remarks was
that the lands which were not swump
nnd overflowed, but which were fit for
cultivation, had been selected under the
swamp land act to the inquiry ol the
people's rights. He asserted that two
hundred millions ot acres had been sc.
lected and approved, in all the States, as
swamp and overflowed lands, wh'.le
everybody knew that no such extent ol
territory (as large as Europe) consisted
of swamp and overflowed l.inda. This
was a fraud upon the copie 01 the
United States for whom the public lunds
should be held as a sacred heritage. Ol
the sixteen million acres which bud been
passed in Florida, under the swamp and
overflowed lands act, he asserted that
eleven million were high and drv.
Mr. numb replied to Mr. (.all. tie
suid that the United States had grunted
to tbe State ot Honda more than ball ot
the lands within its limits. The State
contained about forty million acres and
more than one half that had been given
to the atate lor various purposes, bvery
single acre of land so granted hnd been
uluced under the control ot the legisla
ture of Florida. Some sixteen or eigh
teen million acres had been granted as
swamp and overflowed lands, senator
Call had just told the senate that most
it it was not swamp, but arable luml.
So much the greater was the dereliction
of the Senator's State, if it had betrayed
its trust. He wished the senntor would
say on the stump in his own Slate what
he had said here to-day.
Without action on tbr resolution, the
senate proceeded to executive business,
and at 4 o'clock adjourned.
HOUSE Mr. McKinlcy, of Ohio, of the
committee on ways and means, reported
back tbe bill to simplily laws in relation
to the collection of revenue. It was or
dered printed and recommitted, and Mr.
McKinlcy stated that he Hoped to cull
it up during the present week.
rur, renews, 01 ivansns, niovcn mat
the bouse go into committee of the
whole for the consideration of a bill to
provide town site entries ot lands in
Oklahoma. This was antagonized by
Mr. Adams, ot Illinois, who wished the
house to consider tbe Silcott matter and
the motion was deleated, 65 to 07. Mr
Bland, of Missouri, demanded the tellers,
declaring that a matter involving the
nterestsof one hundred thousand peo
ple should be considered prior to one
which involved only the individual in
terests of members. The friends of tin
Oklahoma bill were again defeated, 06
.0 108, and Mr. Adams called tin the
Silcott report, accompanied by u bill ap
propriating $75,000 to reimburse the
members for losses incurred through the
silcott deiaication.
Mr. Adams argued in favor of the bill,
holding that the scrgeant-nt-nrms was a
public officer, charged first by custom
and afterward by sanction of law with
the duty of disbursing the salaries ot
members. He referred to the defalcation
which occurred in the Twenty-second
Congress and called attention to the fact
that the house at that time voted to re
imburse the members out of the contin
gent fund. The real question presenting
itself now wns not the question of tech
nical right or technical wrong. It wus
u question whether the members were in
some wav to blame for siirmnir their re-
ceip'.s, whether the government hnd lost
tne money by reason ot their Mint, and
whether they should forfeit their money
on account of that fault. New members
had signed the receipts before they had
any legislative power to change tbe luw.
Certificates were presented to them and
they were requested to sign them in
order to get their salaries. If any mem
ber had protested against signing the
certificates, be must go without his sal
ary. Tbe new mrmlicrs were in no wise
to blame, and he could not see how an
old member could vote against an ap
propriation to pay the new members
what they were entitled to. If an old
member. wit himself to blame his only
course was to vote for an appropriation
und afterward determine between him
self and bis conscience whether he would
receive the money himself.
Mr. Butterworth inquired whether
any member believed that the sergeant-at-nrms
was his personal ngent.
Mr. Adams thought that there was no
such member. No one believed that he
had made tbe sergeant-at-arnis his per
sonal ugent, though some might believe
that by a technical rule of law the scr-geant-at-arms
was constituted the agent
of the members.
Mr. Hemphill, of South Carolina, ad
vocated his bill permitting members to
bring suit in the court of claims for the
recovery of their salaries, and opposed
the bill of the majority because he could
find no statute declaring the sergcant-nt-nrms
to be a disbursing officer. Con
gress bad utterly failed, though the mat
ter had been culled to its attention
after tbe report of the United States
treasurer, to make any provision pro
tecting the government in case there was
defalcation. A plain duty hnd rested on
congress to provide that the money
taken trom the treasury should lie saieiy
handled, and it had not performed that
duty, there was about $8,000 of pri
vate money in the sergeant-at-artns'
office. Surely no one would hold that
that officer was a disbursing officer so
far as that money was concerned. He
thought that the house should not ap
propriate public money to pay private
debts.
If the house wns going to appropriate
money to pay members salaries, it
ought to be able to tell the amount due,
and until it was ascertained how much
money was left in the safe was applica
ble to payment of private debts, it
could not tell how much was nccessnry
to pay salaries. The committee could
not ascertain positively what money
Silcott had taken away with him
whether it wns all public money or
whether some of it wns privatafunds.
Mr. Butterworth Tbut is thequcstion
between Silcott and the Government,
what we want is what is due us.
(Laughter.)
Mr. Hemphill We are here not only to
represent ourselves, but the government
as well. (Applause.)
Mr. Butterworth And when a mem
ber is afraid to vote himself, what is
due him, may not the government feel a
little anxious in the presence of moral
KrwmJtooftVrtclNirugon'r vLwrgbeev,)
Mr. Hemphill There will be plenty of
opportunities to snow our moral courage.
There is a good deal of difference be
tween the kind of independence which
people admire, and the kind which rams
your hand into tbe treasury and puts
money into your pockets. (Applause.)
There will be opportunities to show
moral courage, which will not have the
suspicion of being tinned with the per
sonal desire to put into our pockets
money to which we are not entitled.
Mr. Butterworth Has my friend any
doubt that he is entitled to His pay ?
Mr. Hemphill Not at all, because I
have it. (Laughter.)
Mr. Butterworth Then, this is an ex
hibition of virtue that does not cost my
friend any sacrifice. (Laughter.)
Mr. Hemphill I do not know anytime
aman can be more virtuous than when it
does not cost him anything. (Luughter.)
Mr. Butterworth But, is it a lair di
vision of labor for you to exhibit the
virtue, nnd we to make the sacrifice?
(Laughter.)
Mr. Kennedy, 01 UUio.lnauircJ wbethir
it was not true, that the members on tbe
democratic side got tips to draw their
money,
Mr. Hemphill replied thnt. he had never
heard of such a thing, and his denial was
corroborated by Mr. Adams, who stated
that notliu g ot the kind hud come to
tbe knowledge of the committee.
Mr. Holmuii contested the proposition
that the sergeant-ut-arms was the dis
bursing officer.
Mr. Blount, of Georgia, spoke in sup
port of the bill of the majority, and ridi
culed tbe idea of requiring private deposi
tors to go to the court ot cluims in order
to recover their money. He also strongly
opposed the pro rata method of solving
the difficulty, declaring that the bouse
hud no right to pro rate, and that ii
would be a dishonest proceeding. He
admitted that there was no express
statute making the sergeant-at-arms
the disbursing otneer; but the rules 01
the house and tbe custom growing up
under tbcra bad constructively made
him so. Every pavment of money to the
sergeant-at-arms before it was due was
on tbe theory that he was the disbursing
officer, else the treasury had no right to
pay it to him at all. That he was the
disbursing officer was shown by requiring
him to give bond, by giving him a
cashier's teller and bookkeeper, and by re
quiring tne members to certity to aim
their mileage accounts. He was not
afraid to take the position which he did.
Any action on his part suggested by
feur, and trom which there would come
wrong to his fellow members, would be
unworthy of him; and no such motive
would prevent him from declaring to the
house and the country his conclusions
as to the rights of his associates.
Pending further debute, tbe house ad
journed at 6 o'clock.
SMALL INDUSTRIES.
Dr. J. W. Vandlver'a Southern
Seed Farm.
Editor Citiien: As you were kind
enough to notice my Seed Industry, il
your space is not too precious, 1 would
like to say a few things about diversified
industries in general, etc., my own pi
particular.
The memorable venr of 1 87fl found me
in a nice location lor a town, having ex
pended the bulk of what tbe war had left
me in an humble cottage home, and a
plain, commodious cottage. I wns
thinking up some enterprises that did
not involve too heavy physical strength
lor a man of declining years. I began the
seed business. I knew nothing of its
detnils, and had just one leading idea
about it, and that was that numerous
Northern men in the North had grown
rich by selling seeds. 1 always did my
own thinking, but in this instance I con
sulted two or three lending friends and
to a man they dissuaded me. The first
year I sold seven dollars worth, the next
year I sold eighty-five dollars worth, the
third year I sold over three hundred dol
lars worth, and regularly since I have
been widening my circle of patronage,
and now I am sending catalogues not
only alt over the land of "Dixie,"
but to Pennsylvania, Ohio and the
new States, und even Canada and Brit
ish Columbia. This season I count good
for $1,000. The rauin idea that I wan
ted to make public is thut from first to
last, counting everything, I have brought
ten thousand dollars to Buncombe
county, and furnished the people with
seeds better adapted to their use, ana
kept thnt much cash from going North
never to return. Many of niy patrons
became such from local considerations,
wbo are now fast patrons from honest
convictions of economy. I am indescriba
bly grateful lor the home preferences that
have been shown me, and especially to
the gallant press of the South am I
largely indebted. They have lavished
good words upon my enterprise, and
piled their papers on me us if I bad been
a benefactor to the country. Long may
they (including Tub Citizen) wave.
truly,
J. . Vanpiycr.

MISCELLANEOUS.
J. S. GRANT, Ph. G.,
Of Philadelphia College of Pharmacy,
Apothecary, 94 South Slain St.
The Old Year hut drawn to a clout,
and with the beginning of the New Year
we wish to thank the public for their
patronage and recognition of our effort!
to do our full duty. We art fully con
sclous that it is to them that we owe tbe
unexpected success of the past year, in
which our business has been more than
doubled, and we can only regard it as a
new evidence that our business maxims
aiesuch as to cause our customers to
have confidence in us and attract those
who are cautious in dealing with any
Pharmacist until they have become fully
assured of the nature and extent of bis
business principles. In out dealing with
tbe public we realise that the most scru
pulous cure and honesty are paramount
in importance. If these art virtues in
all ordinary business transactions, they
become sacred duties in Pharmacy, and
without them no one can be a true Phar
macist. Tbe health, maybe the lUt, 01
those dealing with the Apothecary de
pends upon them. We consider it our
most sacred duty to shun adulterations
and spoiled as well as inferior drugs.
They constitute an evil trom which Phar
macy suffers no less than tbe public. Tbe
evil is not a new one, inaugurated in late
years; it has existed as long as there
were men whose cupidity was stronger
than their sense of justice, and it will
doubtless continue as long as there may
be men with conceptions of business 0
vague that they expect to purchase gold
for the money value of dross. There are
no other moral principles required for
transacting a Pharmaceutical business
than are necessary for any other business.
Vnwavering integrity that remains unin
Huenced by the visions of gold along tbe
road of questionable or deceitful prac
tices is tbe only foundation for success
that is worthy tbe name; it is so in
every pursuit, and more particularly in
Pharmacy, where as a matter of neces
sity it must be combined with constant
vigilance in all directions, so as ( secure
all possible safeguards.
These are tbe principles which we bare
endeavored to live up to, and to which
we trust our increasing success is due.
We hope onr former pations will show -the
same kindness to wai d us in the fu
ture that they have in the past, knowing
that no action ol ours will ever make
them regret a continuance ol their fa
vors. Yours truly,
J. S. GRANT, Ph. G., Pharmacist,
S S. Main St., Asheville. N. C.
