The flr3t who thAf the American continents were no longer open to future colonization by such a commission might toe, we need only refer to Mr. Bolunt'a mission to Hawaii two and a half years ago, when he was appointed "by the executive" to investigate affairs there and report. So utterly absurd was the action based upon Mr. Blount's report that President Dole with a few hundred militia ond half a dozen field guns could successfully defy the mandate of the great Grover.

All THE MURDER MADE A SENSATION , Newell, the Victim, Was a Well- Kuowu Eailroad Oillcer, in the Discharge of Duty. Denver. Col.. Dec. 20. Unless executive clemency Is Interposed on the ground that the law should not take a mans lite in the week within which the whole world celebrates the bringing of the message of "Peace on Earth, good will toward men," A. W. VanHouten, the prospector who a year ago yesterday shot and kll'ed R ch ard Newell, superintendent of con?truc ilon of the Midland Terminal Railroad, will expiate his crime upon the gallows on. a day not yet fixed during the coming week. The murder of Newell created con siderable of a sensation, and every step following Van Houten'a arrest up lo his conviction, and the subsequent affl matlon of the verdict by the supreme court, was bitterly contested, the murderer having Influential relatives and friends, and un limited funds being at the disposal of the defense. At the time of the murder Van Houton was In charge of a mining claim known as the Black Wonder, and was taking care of that and a cabin thereon for other parties. The nronerty was on the line surveyed for th M'd'and Termlnnl'a route Into Cripple Ceek, and for several weeka prior to the murder was the subject of a big dispute as to its value between the owners and the rail road company; The gradlnir of th road hnd been completed, and the track laid directly up to where the cabin was lo cated. Finally the matter was taken Into court for an appraisement of the cahin and claim, and an order ohtnlned a''o lng the company to proceed w'th th 'ond after they had paid the amount for which the property was condemned. With this order Newell proceeded on a train to the cabin, and, alighting, entered the struc ture and laid the facts before Van Ilou ten. The latter, it Is a'leired. denned to honor the order and defli d Superintendent Newell to remove the cabin. Newfll ex pressed himself emphatically of his In tention to follow out the Instructions of the court, and build the road through the claim. The men had some harsh words, which terminated in Van Hoeten drawing his grn and firing directly at Newe I T e ball penetrated the latter's breast and death was almost Instantaneous. fesslon. Our requirements for admission are all right. I think the state law school should have a longer courae of study be cause their graduates are admitted on two years' study, but I believe In ad mitting any honeat. moral man or woman who can pass the present grade of exam ination and has done the required work. When I hear a lawyer advocating hard er examinations I Just say to myself, 'You aro aware of your own Incapacity, and want to prorct yourself from more com petent men by shutting the doors." I say let all me In on the present standard and the law of the survival of the fittest will regulate all matters connected with incompetent lawyers."

FARM MORTGAGES. Becretdry of Agriculture Morton, In his forthcoming annual report, will say that "the mortgages on farm value do not txceed 16 per cent-a less Incumbrance on the capital Invested than In any other line of Industry." Thla fact is a cheering ono; but tho wonder ia that a Democratic cabinet oill cer ahould make It public. Everyone re member, that In the campaign of lit the' alleged enormous volume of farm . . (n,mi a very large part ot the burden of the Democratic speeches. It waa one of the two great arguments used to Induce the farmer, to vote for Grover Cleveland. The other was free trade-and we fancy the farmer, have had enough experience with that Demo "ratio theory. The admission of Secre tary Morton shows the baselessness ot y.rtirO (TO UrtT tl ITleTlt. The price of staple crops have been low ever since IK, and the farmers have not been extraordinarily prosperous. They have suffered from the severe business depression, which affected all Interests, directly or Indirectly. There has not been a marked lifting of farm mortgages, nor does the secretary make any such claim. Hence it follow, that the claim of the Democrat. In 1852 as to the total amount of farm mortgages were false, and gotten up only to mislead voters.
