THE JAM OF BUSINESS BEFORE
THE CHINESE RESTRICTION
BILL TO COME UP AGAIN,
New Yobk, Feb. 10. A letter
from the American expedition to Mex
ico asserts that success of an interna
tional railrod connecting the United
States and Mexico must depend large
ly upon the friendly co-operation with
the Mexicans, and doubt if they will
consent to an arrangement by which
the Yankees can absolutely control
their destinies through trade. The
prospects of much local Mexican trade
is very poor.
Washington. Feb. 8. The army
appropriation being now out ot the
way, the legislative, executive and
judicial appropriation bills will bo

DEATH OF WM. A. MACONDRY
IN SAN FRANCISCO.
GAS WORKS DESTROYED BY
FIRE IN SAN LUIS OBISPO.
San Francisco, Feb, 10. William
A. Maeondry of Macondry & Co.,
died Saturday night.
San Luis Obispo, Feb. 10. The
gas works here burned down this morn
ing. The retorts and holders unin
jured. The cause of the fire is un
known. Mud Throwing in London.
Certain London editors do not seem
to fraternize with the utmost affection,
Thus the Whitehall Review, upon
the death of the Prince Alice, said in
rather a stately way: "It is our mourn
ful duty to convey to the Queen the
respectful and sincere condolence of
that section of the community more
intimately connected with the Court
and its surroundings than any other
portion of Her Majesty's subjects."
Upon this, the London World news
paper, rising up savagely, iays that
the proprietor of the Whitehall
Review is an egg merchant, named
Peacock, of the firm of Merdin & Pea
cock, Wells street; that the editor is
an ex-reporter of the Morning Post,
and w:is formerly the sub-editor
of a third-rate country newspaper.
And he wants to know, does this sub
acidulous critic, "how this tradesman
and his young man are more intimately
connected with the Court and its sur-
rourdings than any- other portionof
Her Majesty's subjects" unless
mark the line irony! "the one pur
veys the butter for the royal house
hold, and the other the paper in which
the butter is wrapped!" And so, with
a withering allusion to "rampant
idiocy and sickening dunkeydom," he
leaves this pin sticking in the side of
a contempoary and a brother.
