liOO.H SLTILEMKSTS.
The land opened yesterday for settle
ment comprises 1,101,!) acres. Much
of it is arable and productive, vrhile a
large portion of it is arid and barren.
Not all of this tract will be pre-empted
or homcsteaded by white settlers, for
every malo Indian of the Foxes and
Sacs will be entitled to a quarter-section
and a whole section in each town
ship will bo reserved as school lands.
After deducting tho acreage thus taken
there will remain 800,000 acres. Out of
this immense tract there is at least 200,
000 acres sterile and unproductive. The
entire tract divided into homesteads
will give 5,000, oue-fourth of which
will bo worthless for farming or other
purposes. Yesterday at noon an ex
cited throng of homestead seekers,
numbering nearly twenty thousand
men, rushed in upon this land, and
each individual ecrambled to locato a
claim. Three-fourths of them were
disappointed, and they will bo com
pelled to seek the centers of population
where villages and cities will blossom
on tho arid sands as if by magic. Kude
cabins, tents and the open air will
allord them hclter until the excite
ment of tho surroundings abates and
then they will scttlo down to contem
plate their future. After a vain strug
gle to gain a foothold in busineis or a
tart in professional hfo the hegira back
to civilization will be Btarted and in two
months time tho new tract will bo de
serted by all save these who were lucky
in securing homesteads and tnoso who
have no money to return and prefer to
remain and tacc starvation rather than
to walk. The hietory of all such loonjs
is labelled with disappointment from
the portal to the exit. Men without
money expect to pass in upon and set
tle government land without cost,
thereby securing for themselves a
home. They are blinded by their
greed and do not count upon the neces
sity for cattle, swine, horses, imple
ments and buildings. They want tho
land and when they get it, in nine cases
out of ten they are left the helpless vic
tims of their own covetousness. Blood
shed and riot not infrequently attend
the rush to these open lands and the
problem for future solution is to mako
the entry upon and settlement of gov
ernment realty less hazardous and
more business-like.
ATIl.LIAU r SCOTT.
In the death of William L. Scott an
other illustration of tho opportunity
ati'odred for amassing a fortune in
America is presented. Scott started in
life with a capital extending only to
his head and hands. He applied him
self to bmir.es early and by sturdy in
dependence and frugal habits soon had
procured a start. Pursuing a course of
action remarkablo for sagacity and
forehandedness his early hundreds de
veloped into thousands and later on by
extensive trade, mining and manufac
turing investments his thousands grew
into millions. Yet, Scott was not a
man whose success in fortune-making
came alone by sheer luck. He was a
taskmaster of the most tyrannical type,
a despot in business. He exacted tho
last farthing in a deal, demanded tho
last drop of swaat from the brows of
the men who toiled for him and rolled
up the profits which he sequestrated to
swell his millions. He was a product
in the financial world which springs
from grinding monopoly and soulless
greed. Thousands of men received
their daily pittances from his swollen
colTers who had produced tho rapidly
augmenting increase that made him a
modern Croesu. His theory and prac
tice were to get all ho could and to
keep all he got, and there was never a
more conpcuous example of success
in that direction than was tha dead
Congressman. It may bo cruel to
speak ungenerously of the dead, but
the justification in this case is in the
fact that he was never moved by a spir
it of generositf in his life. He will be
mourned by few who depended upon
him for employment. He will te ex
tolled by his colleagues in Congress;
the newspapers of Kne will publish glow
ng obituaries recalling his virtues; the
men of h;s class and station in wealth
will sing paens of praisf? to hU wealth
acquiring genius, but the masses will
have no words of commendation nor
rghs of sorrow. In a year he will have
len forgotten by all save his intimate
friends, for he has left neither endow
ments for chanty, nor a solitary con
tr.but.on to church, school or hopital.
Mr. Scott was a Democrat and a free
trader. In Congress he took an acttve
part in the tanu delates and rude
lumstlf conspicuous as a champion of
cheap tabor. PrclaMy Lis greatest
spoken was devotrd i) the considera
tion cf the iron schedule of the Mc-
and the force of his argurueut destroyed
by oae of his own iliusiratious. He
employed an army of usea ia owa! ci:h
ing, uoa mazmfacturiiig and upoa rail
reads, and was largely ictereated iu
speculative tttcrpr.ses. Ilia weaitn has
been variously estimated at fro::t to -CuOjOW
to $2i,CO0,C, but the ajroxi-"
luata number of millions he possessed
probably wiii bj never kaowu outs.de

cciwuoa school education aud served

to Erie by General Peel and was made
del k in the shipping busiues. In 1S&
he began bu?ir.es8 on his own hook,
and soon owned several vessels on the
lakes. He Ucamo largely interested in
the manufacture of iron and mining
coal, as wt-ll as now rejrriitntir.g over
2203 miles ot railroad probably tiu
gieattst number of miles of railroad

POLITICAL PROSPECTS.
Kx-Congrirtan Ilelknap Confident or
llrpublican uc.
As the timo approaches for the con
ventions to nominate men for the U. S.
Congress, tho interest in tho subject,
which has tcen at an ebq,for some
time, is at full tide again. The nanus
of the probable candidates are on the
lipa of all interestel in the welfare of
the Fifth district and much speculation
is rife concerning tho political issue of
the campaign. Somo of tho prominent
names mentioned for tho Republican
ticket are those of ex-Senator Thomas
W. Ferry, William Aldcn Smith, John
Ration, C. E. Uelknap, C. W. Watkins
and ex-Speaker Diekema of the city.
In conversation with a reporter for
the Ti:i.:nAM-HF.nALD yesterday after
noon Mr. Eeiknap said: "One of the
greatest trouble that the Republican
parly has is its supr-abundance of
good men for the place. They havo so
many that it is hard to choose from
among them. I believe that the prin
ciples of tho men should Iw considered
cs well as the woric tho man can do.
Mai y a man who isn't a collego
graduate, and who can't even
mako a speech, on do letter work
for his district in a quiet way than
a man who is a lorn orator.
It has been the policy of tho Demo
cratic party to nominato a man from
this city, claiming that only such could
be elected. A great many Republicans
think otherwise. I am of the opinion
that tho commercial as well as the
political interests should tJ looked
after in making the nomination. A
Republican victory this fall means a
great deal to us." If we could get a
majority of from 0) to 1000 now, it
would mean at least 2.V)00 to 40000 in
the state a year from this time. A
Democratic victory now would prac
tically be an indorsement of all that
the Democratic leg.slaturo ha don,
including the acts of the present state
administration. Tho convention will
be held October 12lh, which will give
u over two weeks for tho rampa.gn.
That is plenty of time, for the probable
nominen are all well known. There is
no dark horse o far as I know. As far
aalmysidf am concerned, I am very
buy; and base no time or inclination to
boom my own prospects. I have all I can
do to atiend to my three branchesof huni
ne, and it would be a financial loss
for. me to ga to Washington. I believe
I have more friends than I had three
years ago, although some of my t-et
fronds then are my bitterest enemies
now. Put I am very proud of the
enemies. I have never kon sn otnee
seeker, and I am not seeking office now.

POISONOUS ROOTS.
Water Ueailoek Is Very Rang-erooj, Dot
V.niJ I'artalp Is Not.
In a recent number of Pharmaceu
tiache Rundschau, Prof. F. R. Power, of
Wisconsin, reviews come cases of
poisoning by the so-called wild parsnip,
with the result that in 6everal cases
where poisoning was supposed to havo
been due to the wild form of the com
mon parsnip (Puitinaca tatita) it was
caused by eating the roots of water
heralcck or spotted cowbane (Cicvta
rnaeulaia) the root of which has long
been known as a deadly poisonous um
belliferous plant. There has long been
a very popular belief that common
parsnip In its wild form is poisonous.
Chemical examination made Eotno years
ngo by Prof, Power and Mr. Ilenoctt
failed to show a poisonous principle in
the root. Roiled roots fed in consider
able amount to cats showed no ill ef
fects. In one case three and a half
ounees of root was chopped fine, mixed
with some meat and fed a dog. Tho
dog' was observed under confinement
lor two days, but no symptoms of pois-

oning developed. The roots of the
spotted cowbano which is a common
plant ia taaay places in tho west, is
deadly poison. The symptoms as de
scribed by Dr. Avery are vomiting and
pain in the epigastrium, soon followed
by convulsions. In tie cases attended
by Dr. Avery, eight children had par
taken of the root; three of them died.
'Those who died never regained con
Rckmsness after the first spasm, tho
poison having leen largely absorbed
before the physicians wcro rent for."
Treatment, according to Stlllo and
Maisch, should consist in emptying tho

EFFECT OF ACIDS.

The remits of an investigation eon-
Cfmin- the cause of the lnsolobUity of
pure metals in acids are contributed by
jjr Tee re n to the liertcht. ie ia
rave, RO Ion? ags tha year 1?G0,
points out that chemically rnsre cine !

whh'li this theory h& been dtrirtd.
tvtre briefly t3 follovrs: The aasant
of cheniiciiily puro tine clisolvad by tho
acid w as first detertauued. It waa neai
sought to dtterniiao what diffcrenca
would be effecttd by pcrfirnaiig the
experiment ia rctkt, when of courwe the
escape of the hydrogen would be great
ly facilitated, The aolubility was
found under these eirrumttaneea to be
increased sevenfold. Xext the experi
rxieKit was performed at the boiling
temperature cf the diiuto acid, first
when ebullition waa prcvente-d
by increasing the pressure, and
secondly w4ucn ebullition waa uu
hindered. Ia the first case, whea
ebullition was prevented, the solubility
was practically the tame as ia the cold;
whilo in the feccosd cuse w ith uninter
rupted ebullition, tho solubility was in
creased 24 times. Finally, expericients
were made to ascertain tho effect of in
troducing into the acid a traall quantity
of an oxidizing agent capable of convert
ing the hydrogen film to water. When a
little chromic acid was thus introduced
the aolobility was increased 175 times,
and when hydrogen peroxide w as en
poyed tho solubility was increased
three hundredfold. The explanation of
tho easo with which tho metal becomes
attacked when tho ordinary hapuritles
aro present is that the Lydrogvn is not
then liberated upon tho surface cf the
zinc, but rather upon tho move electro
negative impurities, leaving the pure
tino itself opsn to the continued attack
of the acid.

of the ellipse, and it ia claimed that by
this arrangement tho rider is given
greater povrur. When tho cranks are
in tho position that glvea tha rider the
least leverage under ordiaary circum
stances, tho elliptical sprocket wheel
increases the purchase and gives great
er pow-r. The resistance is made more
uniform than in tho case of the or
dinary construction.
