Some other nations would be , much better off, pecuniarily and as; naval powers, if they had observed a similar pol icy. Millions upon millions' have been squandered by various coun tries in costly experiments,' and in spite of these expensive lessons.it is true of other nations as of this that little is fixed in modern naval architecture. ; i ! f., tortf years ago the concerts at the A'hite House , grounds were quite different in many ways from what they how are. i They'' were then looked upon as quite ai itocrat ic. Senators nnd cabinet ministers promenaded with their wives.while the common herd wns supposed to be provided for by those given by the same band at " the capitol ou Wednesday s . ; 1 In these days we hear a, great deal about doing as they did in Jackson's day. The fact of the matter is people who talk that way don't think,, much.- It is now im pofsible to do as thny did in Jack son's day. There is all the differ ence between that time and now that there is between riding a walking-stick as a boy and making a success of riding a bucking mule. The entire popular vote cast in 1924, according to the best records, was less than 400,000. In 1874 it was about 10,000,000. v ,ln 1810, w hen Harrison was elected, it "was only a little over - 2,000,000. But these figures express onlv a. very small side of the case. The num ber of employes have increased in Tnuch creator ratio; It is now something simply enormous. The employes of the postoffice depart ment, for instance, extend through all the departments. The railway mail, the carrier system, and cheap postage have done it. . The num ber of employes to-day are said to be five times as many as they were when the republicans took tne reins of the government in 18G0; The time is certainly coming when something must be done to very much relieve the heads of the de partments. One mind canuot grasp the whole of this great system There are as, many office-seekers to-day as there were voters in 1824. : - " t , !'..: i . LEKOX. 1 Servant Girl's Tribute. During "Wednesday afternoon & neatly-dressed young woman, un mistakrbly of the working class, ap proached the Tribune cashier's window and inquired diffidently: "Is this the place where they re ceive subscriptions for Gen. Grant's tombstone?" "It is," was the reply. Without a word she deposited $i on the counter , and .turned to leave. ; - v 1 ' ' "Wait a minute, madam," said the cashier, "to whom shall we credit this on the list?" She paused a inomeat and then said. "Put down 'From a servant girl, one week's wages,' " and then she T?rt hnj. ' f The Law mid tlie fattlwaen . Cbltas Weekly J ' If the cattlemen had obeyed the injunction of the old legul maxim, caveat emptor let the purchaser beware they would rot now ' be cursing Gen. Sheridan and franti cally appealing to the president. They looked upon the lands of the Cheyeiiiii-s end Arnpahocs to ewl them and they beguiled the guile lass Indian to lease what was not his to lease, and now they are fear ing their hair over the bad box into which their covetousnest without caution has placed them. Their attempts to put the government in the wrong by saying that it taoitly consented to these Indian leases will not do. The government of the United. States can do no wrng. Some of its officials iutiusted with the manngement of its affairs may haqe tacitly consented to the jeaso of Indian reservations to specula tive cattlemen, but the latter vere bound by. law and the dictates of common prudence to, examine ,the title they were renting. The Sme laws, statutes, and treaties upon which tlie attorney-general has based his odiuiou were open to tlie inspection of the attorneys of the wealthy cattlemen It tney neg lected to examine them -or trusted to the tacit consent . of officials to confirm ah' illegal bargainso much the worse for them. To-day they claim that the strict enforcement of the order to rtmovo their cattle from the leased reservatmn lands in forty days will be a virtual de struction of their cattle interests, amounting to $G,000,000. They should have thonght of this before their cupidity led them to take ille gal leases of lands , they may not occupy except in open defiance of the Jaw. Attorney-General Gar lands opinion touching the status of the Indian leases is clear, strong and conclusive. His citations from the United States statutes preclude any 1 construction which might serve to shelter the cattlemen in the occupancy of the lands ..leased from the Indians. By section 2110 revised statutes, now in force,. it is declared "that no" purchase, grant, leReTx,r CktJierCQ!iv:e or any title or claim thereto from any Indian nation or tribe of In dians shall be of any validity in law or equity unless the same be make by treaty of constitution." If, notwithstanding this comprehen sive and explicit provision of the law any one enters with cattle or other live stock on an Indian res ervation under a lea&o he is an in truderand may be removed there from as such although "the tribe consents to hia occupancy. From which it doth- appear that if the cattlemen are wise they will stop passiug resolutions of remonstrance about their hardships and remove their, tresspassing cattle without delay. The people of the United States haye little faith in the pro tests of men who have openly de fied the law. Gen. Sheridan says the cattle can be removed is forty days. In forty days there should not be an intruding bull, steer, cow, calf, or other four-legged property of eattlemen on the Indian reser vations. ; ' , The Parting. The Dartinc was .sad. the tears were bitter. , Hide, sun, thr kindly . ' face, and gather ye storm s blackest, inky scroll! Tenderly kiss the pale, wan cheeks; brush back the damp, clinging, auburn locks from the pale, high brow which a fond moth er's lips have kissed since infancy. Speak the last sad, parting word, the words which make us linger on their echoes. Say good-bye for aye; drt-ss the cold hand and watch the slow, retreating form which fadV away forever. Ho is going to play firf t bs htll nntch. The Mormons of Utah, are evi dently preparing to tett the mettle of the new administration. Army officers well posted in Salt Lake affairs believe that they are plan ning outbreaks with the view of precipitating ft conflict, and thus to unite the entire Mormon ' popu-' lation. H'hat they hope to fically gain from such a course can hard ly be conceived, but it will' bo ' bad day for Mormonisra when it presumes to strike at the govern ment while in the hands of the present party, j The republicans resolved in a national platform twenty-five years ago to put down polycamy and the curse has con stantly grown on its hands. ) Cleve land will be prompt to show that polygamy can be crushed ia a sum. mary manner, when the job is un dertaken by a demotrat- Ottura wa Democrat. ' 1 ; In Search of Sunken Wealth. Chicago Hrtald. , ' An expedition will soon sail from Philadelphia for Vizo, Spain, in search of the Spanish treasure gal leons sunk in the bay ih 1702. An engineer who visited the spot last summer declares that he positively located eleven of the sunken treas ure galleons and, in a diver's : suit, went down upon the decks of sev ers! of them,' which were lying at the depth of thirty ! or forty feet below the surface. With a charge of dynamite he blew off the deck of one of them and laid bnre the gen eral cargo, which consisted of huge' logs of mahogony and logwood in perfect ". preservation.- He , also picked up coins from the deck, and iron balls, mementoes - of the sea fight 183 years ago. ' It ia a well established , fact that cows in New Mexico and Arizona produce more calves than cows on the Northern ranges. From a careful computation of data on this point it has been found that about ninety-five per cont of the cows of this section drop calvus every year providing there has been the max imum bull service. , On the other hand tho ihree-year-old steers of the Northern ranges will outweigh the steer of the same age grown in Central New Mexico , by 200 to 250 pounds except in the case of high bred stock, when the dilference if verv slight. Ex. Table Tastes of tne Great. San Francisco Argonaut. J . Gen. Sherman likes red head ducks and rock-fish. Samuel J Randall is a daily eater of game, and his table is well supplied with pheasants and quail. Ex-Secrtary Lincoln is a rather dainty eatea, and humors his palate with qut.il, terrapin, and rock-fish. t General Sheridan is particularly fond of canvas-back ducks and diamond back terrapin, and these must be very choice. Justice Harlin, of the supreme court, buys generally canxas-back ducks and rock-fish. Judge McArther likes canvas-back ducks and shad. Wade Hampton likes blue-wing teal and black bass. i'rr . 1 onen goes nunung auu nsning !st fisherm).n in Washington b Mr. Arthur: when in the White House, tiou&ht lame amounts os came diamond-back terrapin, woodcock, and canvas-back ducks t were a jstandiug order.
