The New York Central" Railroad
on Wednesday put fare from Boston
to all points iki the West down one
dollar,- when the Erie' line and con
necting routes went5 below that'. A
ride from New York to San Francisco
now, in H ist' class style is only $131.
Fare from San Francisco remains
the same as last month.
Senator Conklihg- cannot be ac
cused of bidding for votes from the
Pacific'coast when helntroduced that
petition or memorial, -a few days ago,
from tlie New York Transportation
Company Association, remonstrating
against any further gifts or benefits
being conferred upon Pacific rail
toads. Tlie jealousy of the East with
respect to this part of the country
sometimes crops'dtit in a very small
Ambng the arrivals, last week says
a' Philadelphia correspondent, was pub
lished that of "Commodore Connor of
of San Franciscoi" We wouldn't have
known it was the blunt and grizzly
old Captain of the John L. Stephens
if we hadn't seen him up on Ninth
street ordering a Philadelphia land lub
ber to heave to and tell him how many
knots it was down to Walnut street.
He is evidently more "at sea" on the
streets- of Philadelphia" than on the
bosom of the broad Pacific.
Peter Cooper has finally accepted
the nomination for President at the
hands of the Indianapolis convention,
but in d6ing so he expressed as a
condition that in case the party which
have nominated him may attain its
exalted aims of affording needed re
lief from the blighting effect of past
unwise' legislation relative to finances,
through either the Republican or
Democratic party, both of them meet
ing in national convention at an early
day, he shall be permitted to step
aside and remain rn that quiet which
is most congenial to his nature and
time of life.
As we write v6 fancy we hear
the wheels of loconiotive No. 100, and
the cars composing the Jarnet &
Palmer train speeding its way from
New York to San Francisco in four
at days.- They expect to take dinner
the Palace Hotel on Sunday.- There
are sixteen persons in the company.
The fare for the round trip, including
one week's board at the Palace Hotel,
is 8500: The tickets for the guesls
are of beautiful workmanship, in
book form,- the cover being solid di
ver, and enclosed in white satin cask
ets. The cost of each ticket and
casket will be $40. The New York
Herald, commenting on the mutter
says : "It is a commendable evi
dence of private enterprise, and is an
event which possesses National im
portance. What these bold managers
do now as a wonderful feat, will be
done twenty years from now every
A Washington dispatch of the
29th says: "Representative Lane has
submitted to the House Pacific railroad
committee and is urging the adoption
of jm amendment to the pending bill
for the extension of the time for tlie
completion of the N. P. R. R., pro
viding that, as a condition of the ex
tension, the company shall construct
and equip its road between Kalama
W. T., and Portland, Oregon within
two years from the f enactulent of the
hill." This appeal's to us fo be in ac
cordance withihe previously arranged
programme of the Portland Board of

"Who 'is Herbet Spencer, Pap!"
asked an inquisitive Brooklyn boy of
his father the other morning. "He's
a famous English Philosopner my
son." "And what's a philosopher?"
continued the lad, with the business
air of a person who couJd keep right
on asking qucstfous until doomsday.

On Journalism. One of the most
frequent and sweeping accusations made
by the mns of the public against the
journalists is that they have no principles,
that they are trimmers, defending one
thing to-day and another to-morrow.
This accusation is unjust. Taken as a
whole,- journalists are much les guided
by personal considerations in the matters
of public interest thnn any other body
of men. Life is not stationery, and they
have naturally to alter their opinions now
and then, under the influence of changing
circumstances. But these changes are sel
dom the result of anticipated personal ad
vantages. A fne thinker becoming
oithodox, a republican becoming a morr
archbt or a liberal becoming a conserva
tive, arethinss by no means as frequently
to be met with among journalists as they
aie among people at large. On the con
tinent of Europe such a change of princi
ples on the part of any newspaper or
literary man is utterly impossible without
his incurring the penalty of moral death.
Mot newspaper articles being signed
there, the writers may in the course of
time change the shade of their colors, but
never the colors themselves. Political
and philosophical inconsistency in jour
nalism is the product of the anoymous
press, and il is in England that it is at its
