STATE IIUDSR ITEMS. Yesterday was the time appointed for the railroads to answer the railroad com missioners as to what they were going to do about the existing discrimination of rates. The railroad representatives failed to show up. The wholesalers in the city who went so active heretofore failed also to show up , and at 11 a. m. the office was looked up nnd nothing was going on except the salaries of the com mission , which , llko the brook running to the mill , go oa forever.There was a letter from Mr. Kimball stating that the road * wera fixing up a nofo schedule of rates to go into effect July 1 , when they hoped all would bo calm again. It was the usual ending of the usual farce when any attempt is made to regulate railroads. The absence of the wholesalers who were active at the former mooting can bo satisfactorily ex plained from the fact that wholesalers have now the promise of an > in and out rate equal to Omaha , and that was their light. It remains to bo scon what the common pcoplo will got out of it more than a cipher , except their inalienable right to whack up their share of taxes to support the commission. Governor Thaycr has appointed B. E. B. Kennedy , of Omaha , as his own suc cessor as a member of the state normal school board.

' Portland Oregoman : A phenomenon "of peculiar Interest hug transpired In the past forty-eight hours in the north part of Album , near the Portland flouring .mills. Some time last summer James Church moved from his house on the hill to a Email house near the powder-house , BW as to be near his work at the mill , lie 'sunk a well some twenty fuot deep down through the gravel to whore ho struck water , but as the water iu the river fell the water in the well also fell , so that the well became a failure. The first ten feet from the surface was loose gravel , ao that it had to be curbed ; the balance was a tight , hard gravel , standing with out curbing. When the water began to rise in the river n few weeks ago the water returned in the well and rose to within ten feet of the sur face and then stopped. The water in the river continued to rise until Friday last , when it reached a point so as to How into the well from the top , when , to every ono'g surprise , the water re mained the name in the well ton feet be low the surface of the water in the river. The river has buen pouring into it for the past forty-eight hours a stream some three feet wide aud four inches doop.aud yet the water in the well is throe feet bu low the surface of the river. As rapidly a : the water pours in it disappears. The question is : Whcro docs the water go to' Some thren or four miles to the east Is the Columbia river , whoso surface Is hlghci than the surface of the Willamette nvei at Portland. I account for it in this way The peninsula between Portland and the Columbia river is composed for the mos part of loose glacial debris In the fonn o gravel , into which the water ebbs nnc flows as the water rises and falls. Thii produces the flowing well so common 01 the peninsula. Along the shores of botl rivers this open , porous gravel has beet partially scaled in past ages by the sedi ment contained in Uie uood waters o both rivers. Hence when the water rise ; rapidly in the Columbia aud Willemetti the water does not percolate through suf iciently rapid to till the great area af fast as the rivers rise , honeo there is' * basin or reservoir of several feet In depth beneath thd peninsula to bo filled with water. This is connected directly with the well in question , and n ? the water Hews into it at the top it Is dispersed nmong the open gravel of the reservoir. ItKAIj ESTATE.

Chicago Herald : "Talking about col lisions and railroad accidents , " said the breaktnan , after putting a window up tor a young lady passenger aud failing to notice the old woman who wanted a similar service performed , "let me tell you of an acoident 1 saw once down in Pennsylvania. There was n narrow gauge road down thcro which used the track of the old Atlantic & Great West ern broad gauge for seven miles , of course running on its own rails , set richt between the rails ot the other road. The Old Atlantic & Great Westernyon know , is now the Nypano , or New York , Penn sylvania & Ohio , a part of the Erie sys tem. Its gauge was six feet wide , nnd what big cars they used to run on that roadl Why , they were like barns. Well , ouo night there was a collision between a narrow-gauge train and r broad-gaugo train. Some mistake about orders , I guess it was. Anyhow , a nar- row-gaugo uasaotigor train dashed into the rear end of a broad-gauge passenger train , and with the curiousost result oror you heard of. That little narrow-gauge engine just jumped right up into the big cars of the other tram and novcr stopped until it reached the tender behind the broad-gauge locomotive. And what was the funniest thing about it , it drew the whole train after it , the little cars run ning right up the aisle of the big train and never hurting a passenger iu either train , "cept one feller what had his head outen a window of the narrow-gauge smoking car. He was pretty badly hurt. "It was a mighty queer sight , let me telll you , one train inside another , and the passengers of each talking to each other as comfortable as you please. I was brakeman on the broad-gauge train , and as we was runnin' under orders .to make Salamanca by a certain minute , wo went right along without stopping , taking the other tram with us. The best joke of it all was that ray conductor went through the iiariow-guage train and made all the passengers whack up cash faros.

The Wanderings of Two Seamen and Their Strange Meeting. DECOYED FROM THE DOCK. Thrilling Adventures of Twollrotliori on Lmnd and Sea A Hciuiioa on Hoard aConToilor- .ate Cruiser. Philadelphia Tress ; A more curious meeting of brothers , perhaps , novcr took plnco than occurroil on the deck of the Confederate States cruiser Shenandoah up nmong the ice iu lichrlug straits on June 23 , 1805 , Five years prnvionsly John and Fran- Gin Turner were a couple of smart young fellows in Now Orleans , owning a pair of "floats , " fts the largo drays tire called there , with which they made si business of hauling cotton on the river front. On an afternoon in the autumn of 18GO John Turner , the elder brother , was passing along the lower Icvco , whcro ft tow of sailing vessels , outward buiuul , was being made up , when he was called on board one of them on some pretext and asked to go into the forecastle , liuforo ho un derstood what was going on , the tow cast loose from the moorings and proceeded down t'.io Mississippi. When ho appealed to the captain of tlu > Vessel to bo put on shore , ho was laughud nt , and ho found that ho had boon " ' ' th.it the "shanghaied' is , decoyed on ship by the keeper of a sailors' boarding house , who had represented him as a seaman - man , and drawn his advanced pay.which was nearly all his waes ; for tlio voyage to Liverpool , the port of destination. Some of his mates udvised him to Uo his duty on board , and go to the United States consul at Liverpool , who would send him homo. Arrived in England , immediately upon landing , he foil in with just such another rascal as had shipped htm at New Orleans , and , stupillud with drink , he was again "shanghaied" this time on a vessel 4 > ound for China. Before she reached Honkong the drayman had be come a lirst-rato seaman , and had taken u likinc to the life. Returning to England after the civil war hud begun in America and good hands wore oQercd double wages to ship on steamers running the blockade of southern ports ho engaged in that dan gerous and profitable service. Unlike most of his shipmates in those days of making money fast and spending it Siiipkly , he wns prudent and economical , y keeping out of the dives and grog- gerios of Nassau , the calling port of the blockade-running ferry between Liver pool and the southern sea coast , where sailorracn then matched guineas for drinks and one crew was known tospcnd 1,000 on a night's lloerty , ho saved most of his earnings and soon opened an ac count at a Liverpool bank. Ilia luck ran along without a break un * til November , 18M ( , when ho was an able seaman on the Uritish steamer Uanshee. one of the great licet of swift ships dodjr- ing the United States blockading squad ron into Charleston or Wilmington with war material and slipping to sea again with the precious cotton that was sold at COO per cunt profit on the other side of the Atlantic , whcro it fed the Lancashire mills and stopped the mouths of the rio ters and hungry operatives. On this trip the Banshee was chased into Charleston harbor by it United States gunboats , and by the bur.stinc of one of her shells over the blockade run ner Turner received a wound jn the head that laid him up in a Charleston lios- pitnl until after the departure of his ship. Uec6vcring from his injuries , which had temporarily affected his brain , Tur ner became possessed of the impulse to make hia way to New Orleans , then in hands of the federal forces , to sock for his brother und a younger sister whom he hud left there when ho was kidnapped. It was a perilous' journey from the con federate lines into those of the enemy , but ho made his way safely across the Mississippi and reached New Orleans early In January , 1803. There ho could discover not the slightc.se vestige of his family. They had vanished aoout the time of the federal occupation without leaving any traces of their departure. From New Orleans Tumor worked his passage to Mobile in one of the coasters that kept up an illicit traflic between the two cities by way of Lake I'onictiar train and Mississippi sound , and at Mobile shipped on a blockade runner for Nassau. On the voyage the mental aberrations caused by his wound increased. He be came unfit for duty and was put ashore at Nassau. The confederate ship-of-war Florida , was then in port coaling for a cruise down the Spanish main and to the "part ing of the marine roads" north of the equator. She waa short-handedher com mander , Captain Malllt , was endeavor ing to pick up seamen secretly , so as to avoid violating the British foreign civ listment law , which might have sub jccted him to detention. Turner applied for enlistment , but was rejected on account of his feeble appear ance , which resulted from his illness and disappointment Ho was determined to got into the ship , and on her second day out he was discovered to bo a stowaway in the forward hold. Captain Mntiitt was so incensed at finding him on board that ho ordered Jiim ironed , but Lieutenant - tenant Read , the third ollicer of the Flora'la , took a fancy to him and pre vailed oh MallUt to giro him a berth among the crew. Turner proved an cflicient seaman and won the confidence of his mates. He re mained in the ship during her work of burning and sinking American vessels on the coast of Brazil , and was still one ot her coin puny when she ran across the Atlantic to Brest , in August , 1SG3. At that great French naval station he was among that portion of tbc Florida's com plement detached to go to England to help in manning the two hugo and formidable armor-plated ships of war which the Laird firm had nearly completed at their Ulrkonhuad dock yards lor the southern confederacy. The British government seized the vessels before they could sail and the confeder ate seamen were dispersed. Turner had wearied of naval service and shipped on a merchantman for New York. Thence ho wandered up among the Massachusetts whalers , and at New Bedford signed arti cles for the bark \Vaverlv , bound for a three years' cruise into the North Pacific and Arctiooocan. At the outbreak of the war the younger brother , Francis Turner , had enlisted in a Louisiana artillery regiment , some of the companies of which , m the deficiency of trained seamen , were detailed as gun ners on the confederate gunboats that opposed Farragut's passage up to New Orleans. He waa one of the few who es caped capture when the squadron was captured or destroyedand accompanying Lieutenant Baker and some other officers , ho evaded thn federal pickets on the cast side of the MiMissippi and reached Mo bile. ONot desiring to bo returned to his regi ment , he concealed his identity by assum ing th name of Frederick Johnson , and roamed about the country until he reach ed Fernandina , on thn Florida coast. After working awhile Vylth tbc ( Ubormen there , ho professed to an ofHcsr of a United States ship that had cast anchor I In the river lo bo a loyalist , and was re- I cruitad as a landsman in the crew. | Within turco month * the vessel wr l ordered to the Philadelphia navy yard for repairs , and in thatc port ho deserted , His next berth was on an Jtalian craft sailing for the Mediterranean from New York , and after a year..or more in the merchant service hu-wtis in Liverpool in September , 180 * , when 'Cnptnin Bullock , the naval agent of the Contcderalo States , had his skirmishers .out gathering in every good seaman who could be persua ded to sign articles for a , voyage in the Sea King to Singaporo.and beyond. Tur ner signed the articles. , with a corn-ct suspicion , derived from , his former ex perience in the coufcdornto service , that the Sea King was to bo transformed in neutral waters into or rebel cruiser. Ho still kept his assumed nn'mo of Johnson , and when the steamer was transferred to the confederate flag oil' the lonely island of Las Descrtns , ono of the Madeiras , he was the first man of the ostensibly British crew to step forward at the summons of Captain \ \ addell and enroll his name for service on the confederate man-of-war Shcnftndo.ih. Waddell issued to him a warrant as a petty ollicor , and he stood as high as any man on "board the ship outside the wardroom and cabin. The Slionandoah ran down to Austra lia , and thence steamed up the Pacific to the high northern latitudes. She in flicted more damage to the commerce of the United Stated than any confederate cruiser , except the Alabama , and in the boat parties that set lire to her many prizes Francis Turner was a conspicuous figure. Toward the end of May. 18 < J. > , she was north of the Aleutian islands and had struck some of the New England whalers who were working into the Ohkotsk sea and the Arctic ocean. Having been severed from communi cation with cither the Asiatic or Ameri can continent lor three months , Captain Waddell know nothing of the surrender of Leo's army or the occupation of Hich- mend by the Union army , and so con tinued his career of devastation. On Juno 28. 1805 , coming out of Bohr- ing's straits , the Shcnandpah captured and burned eight American whaling ships. That far northern .sea and its floating fields of ice were illuminrUed by 'he llames of the immense conllagration , or the prizes had been closely huddled , .ml . their oil-saturated hulls burned iorcoly , while their spars and rigging nado a I'u-ry tracery against the dull lackground of the Arctic sky. Ono of the doomed ships was the New jndford \ \ averly , and the boat commis- lioned to take the prisoners from her und o apply the torch was in command of Francis Turner. The boat was loaded almost down to he gunwales , and in returning through he heavy sea to the Shenandoah a pris- > ner wont overboard in one of the urchcs that she made. Coxswain Tur- icr hauled him in over the stern and as hey came face to face the rescued man ixed an inquisitive look upon the face of he coxswain. Huddled under a thwart and covered with coat to keep from freezing , he said nothing then. But when the prisoners wore mustered on the dock of the Shen- imdoali and required to give their names , ' 10 answered loudly , "John Turner , of Sow Orleans. " Francis Turner , who > vas among the crew , Clustered on the larboard side of the main deck , sprang 'orward as the namciiwas given , but naval discipline restrained him from in terfering with the roll-cull. The reunion of the t > rothers took jilace later in the day. . John Turner enlistedflns a seaman on he Shmiandoah , and the brothers were n the same watcn , when a month later ho ship made down1 the California coast and obtained froni a passing Eng- 'Lshiuan information of' the downfall of ho rebel government. Ho them headed 'or Liverpool , where she was surren dered to the British ' - authorities , and eventually transferred to the United S'ates. On her arrival at Liverpool ( he reporters tors und correspondents of British now. * papers wore busy in interview-kit : her ollfcers and crew , and among the many narratives they obtained was that of the ' adventures of'tho Turner brothers , which was printed iu the Livcrnool Mercury and in papers published at Newcastle and " . .cods.

' . hy this sign is "Fifth national , " " "in stead of "Fifth National" has bothered the head of many n passer-by. Some years ago n country lawyer with small practice , but an eye for thn main chance , made the discovery that it wan a viola tion of the national bank law to use the word "National" prelixed by a numeral ns the name of any business establish ment other than a duly chartered national bank. c The country lawyer discovered , more over , that the penalty for such violation was pretty heavy , and that on conviction one-half the fine was logo to the informer and one-half to the government. So the country lawyer started out to protect the law and punish all transgressors of it- loan olliccs. saloons , restaurants , b&rber shops , gambling houses , and whatever and whomsoever ho could iind. Among his first victims was the pro prietor of the Fiftli National Loan Ollice of Chicago , and after being mulcted of a considerable sum of money this wise and thrifty person concluded it would bn more prolltable to drop the first letter to the word National and substitute an It. The country lawyer made a jtour of the coun try , and his zeal iu behalf of a btrict ob servance of the law is said to have netted him $10,000 or $12,000 iu a few months.
