To-day's Tribune says editerially:
Governor Stanford, President of the
Central Pacific railroad, seems to be
a very candid man. In the contest
which has just closed in California,
the newspaper organs of the railroad
constantly asserted that railroad af
fairs Avcre not in the slightest man
ner involved; that the only question
was as to the fitness of the legislative
and other candidates. Now, how
ever, railroad magnates harrangue

Washington dispatches say that a
member of Congress, who was a
member of the Banking and Curren
cy Committee of the last Congress,
states that he shall advocate a system
in the next Congress which will per
mit unrestricted free banking, condi
tional onlv unon adequate bonded
security for circulation. He believes
banking under some condition of ad
equate security should be as open to
competition as any other business.
Clinton L. Merriam, another mem
ber of the same committee, expressed
like views, with the addition of the
control of redemption. v The member
of Congress first alluded to states that
the banks will oppose any consider
able increase of National Bank cir
culation, and a corresponding with
drawal of greenbacks under such cir
cumstances would so hasten the ne
cessity of the redemption of National
Bank notes as to utterly destroy the
present profits of the National Bank
The Times says Father O'Farrell,

Times adds, "This action of Father

New York, .Sept. IS. There is great
excitement on the street in conse
quence of the announcement of the
failure of Jay Cooke & Co. The
question generally asked is, "who
next?" Stocks begin to tumble gener
ally, caused as much by apprehen
sions of the future as by the exciting
condition of affairs. Prominent op
erators in Wall street attribute the
suspension of this firm, not so much
to the efforts to sustain the Philadel
phia house, as to operations in the
Northern Pacific Eailroad, which,
it is said, they sought to carry be
yond their s'rength. It is expected
the Life Insurance Company with
which Jay Cooke & Co. are connect
ed, may have to go under. It is said
that Jay Cooke lost large sums in the
recent gold movement. Some say
they are unable to make any further
statement, save that they expect to
resume business in a short time.

Washington, September 16.
Admiral Pennock, commanding the
North Pacific Squadron, reports that
he has had several friendly talks
with the Alaska Indians. Many
chiefs visited the ship. They seem
to be impressed with the importance
of being on good terms with the Uni
ed States. There are only a few
American traders at the quarters in
the vicinty, and no settlement except
at Sitka. The Admiral visited Sitka,
and remained seventeen days; dur

For some years past, there has been
bad blood between the Stickeen and
Chilicot tribes, and when at Etalia
harbor, Almiral Pennock was solicit
ed by a Stickeen chief, to use his
good offices in bringing about a re
conciliation. The Admiral talked
the matter over with the chiefs of the
Chilicots, whom he found ready to
burv the hatchet.
