ONLY ONE MORE RIVER TO CROSS,
Should the Chinese Exclusion Act Only
Expire Tuesday Night
TBI AGGREGATION SPREAD ITSELF
A Possible Show for the Agents of
Government to Get in and do
Detroit, April 29. The woods are
fall of Chinese over in Canada. It is
said the denizens of the Flowery King
dom, in large numbers, are dodging be
hind trees and hiding in sequestered
nooks, ready to make a break for the
United States the minute the clock
strikes 12 on the night of 3d. They
all firmly believe that on May 4th the
Chinese exclnsion act will expire, and
they hope to slip into the United States
before the law now under consideration
in congress can be put into effect. This
numerous aggregation has consequently
spread itself out along the border all the
way from here to Vancouver, and is only
biding its time to get into this great
republic. Detroit, however, seems to be
' the moet favorable point at which the
Celestials can cross the border, for it is
the city most adjacent to Chicago.
. whither nearly all of them seem to be
. bound. Because of this fact, Detroit has
always been a favorite port at which to
land after the trip through Canada from
the Pacific, and, although there are no
statistics to prove it, it is undisputed
that more Chinese have been smuggled
across the Detroit river, 'at various
points, than at any- other place in the
country. Capt. Pratt, special treasury
agent, says the Chinese are avoiding
Windsor, because they know they wHl
- be closely watched there. The border is
as closely guarded as it can be by the
small force stationed here. There is
more chance of the Chinese trying to
cross Marine city, or the mouth of the
. river, than at Detroit.
The Last Duel.
New York, April 30. Yesterday an-
other duel was reported "between Mill
bank and a Frenchman," as the out
come of the Drayton-Borrowe scandal
Later report confirms the fact. The
' Frenchman was the Due de Morny, who
was wounded and may not recover. It
in t.hnnorir. ATillhAnfc had nn intention of
killing the duke. On the other hand, it
is said, De Morny aimed for Millbank's
head, intending to kill him, and missed
only by a hair's breadth.
London, April 28. Large sale of
American railroad securities in the last
day or two indicated that somebody is

to ascertain whether the parties are in

closed without a failure. A decidedly
better feeling now prevails, and business
for the new account is brisker.
Emln Pasha Still Lives.
Zanzibar, April 29. Advices from the
interior of Africa say that Dr. Stuhl
mann, who was with the detachment of
Emin Pasha's expedition, last reported
marching on Bukoba, reached that place
Ti 1 f mi r j i

ine and dieease. Emin Pasha is report
ed ill, and is following Stuhlmann from
Wadelai by easy stages.
Gen. Alger's Chances.
Detroit, May 2. A prominent repub
liean who was supposed to have some
thing to do with- the slight to Gen. Al
ger, in reply to a complaint from one of
Alger's friends yesterday said: "Gen
Alger's chances for the presidency seem
to have wandered away to the political
horizon and tumbled off. Mr. Harri
son's' boom appears to be attending
strictly and quietly to the business of
accumulating a wood-pile."
Loxnoft, April 29. A dispatch from
Peshawar, India, says the troops of
the ameer of Afghanistan acted outrage
ously, respecting neither party nor
womankind,- The men of three villages
attacked, . and severely . defeated . the
troops, who, at last reports, . were hold
ing oat against annihilation behind bar
ricades. ' Reinforcements are being hur
ried forward to their aid. -
Bbooklts, May 2. William C. Bol
ton, of the Bolton drug company, got
tired of his wife and went to Dakota,
obtained a divorce and married again.
His wife sued him. for divorce, which
has been granted by the Supreme court.
Judge Pratt declared the Dakota divorce
to be worthless, which would render the
second marriage bigamous. . Bolton did
not defend the suit. - -" ''

: Helena, Mont., May 2. -The richest
mineral ever found4n Montana is re
ported from Bonnart in the" Little Rock
district. The vein is eight inches thick
and assays from $2,000 to $20,000 per
ton.. The ore is fairly streaked with
ruby silver. Reports of rich discoveries
of gold continue to come from the Little
Rockies southeast of Chinook. " A ton of
surface or float ore from the mines
yielded over $600 in bullion. A stream
of water coming from one mine is said
to cure the taste for liquor and is named
Bichloride of Gold spring.
The Argentine Republic.
Washington, May 2. No proposal
has been or likely will be made for
treaty between the United States and
the Argentine republic The report that
a secret agreement exists whereby Urn
guay guarantees to provide a naval depot
for the American navy is contradicted
The United States has invited various
South American republics, including the
Argentine republic, to establish a com
mercial league. A discussion of the pro

THE MORMON TEMPLE
After Thirty-Nine Years the Massiyi
Structure is Finished
TENACITY OF LATTER DAY SAINTS,
Remarkable Results of Their Pioneer
Co-operation in Utah.
SURVEY OF THE MORMON FUTURE
Another Generation Mast Pass Before
Statehood Can be Trusted to
Salt Lake City, May 2. April 30th
and May 1st, 1892, will pass into history
as memorable days in Utah. Thirty'
nine years after its inception the cap
stone of the Mormon temple at Salt
Lake City has been laid. The record of
mormonism since this huge religious
edifice was begun by Brigham Young a
generation ago is of great interest. In
the erection of the temple $3,000,000 has
been spent. Viewed solely as a religious
sect the "Jatter-day saints" have had a
tenacity of purpose and a virility in
action that have produced marvellous
results. Apart from their peculiar
rites, their belief in polygamy and their
frequent conflict with the United States
laws, their pioneer labors in the devel
opment of Utah have had remarkable
results. On the completion of its great
temple, mormonism doubtless takes an
inventory of the present and a survey of
the future. Most of its pioneer leaders
are gone and a majority of the younger
prophets desire no more conflicts with
the gentiles. The territory has largely
passed under the control of men of
American sentiment. The suppression
of polygamy by law is no longer openly
resisted. But the mormon sentiment is
still the ruling force in Utah, and those
who say it is dead are superficial inves
tigators. Another generation may have
to come and go before the American peo
ple will feel safe in intrusting sovereign
statehood to Utah. Meanwhile .the
mormons will worship peacefully in
their great temple at Salt Lake, their
harmless symbolic rites being freely tol
erated by a government that is bound to
Ottawa, Ont. April 29. In the house
of commons yesterday a bill to renew
the modus vivendi was read a third time
and passed. ,
Thomas B. Knaggs filed a petition in the
circuit court at Indianapolis, recently
asking that he be permitted to change
his names to Thomas B. West. He says
he has no intention of defrauding anyone
or of avoiding any responsibilities, but
hia name ia a burden which he can no
longer bear. Hia friends, he says, have
tortured it into everything else but
Knaggs, and upon being introduced to
ladies at parties and entertainments, he
is horrified to hear himself called "Jags,"
Bags," "Kaggs," "Snaggs," and even
Rags," and this occurs so often that
nothing but a change of name can sup
ply a permanent remedy. How differ
ent it is out here in the .wild and wooly
west where the venerable Geo. H., has
borne his name with dignity and honor
since the time he came over from Ire
land with Sir Walter Raleigh.
Some time last week J. H. Spoonemore
plowed np a skeleton on .his farm near
the head of Sberar's grade. It appears
to be the remains of a white person,
perhaps 40 or 60 years of age, as all of the
front teeth are gone and the back teeth
are considerably worn. All who have
seen.it say it is not the remains of an
Indian. . Mr. Spoonmoreisata loss what
to do about it. He says the law does not
allow him to remove or disturb "it and
he cannot plow the ground any depth
without he plows it up. .;.
Secretary Blaine appeared before the
senate commitee on commerce yesterday
and made a. strong argument opposing
the pending resolution authorizing the
landing of the French cable on the
shores of Virginia and South Carolina.
His objection was because the French
cable "company, co-operating -with the
Brazilian government, had an absolute
monopoly of the cable privileges between
the United States and Brazil, and if the
resolution passed, the negotiations look
ing to the procurement of a concession
to the American cable company to' enter
Brazil would come to naught. .The sec
and made his argument with' spirit and
emphasis. - - -- '
"Portland first, Chicago next," ia the
way Col. R. W. Mitchell announces the
opening of the Portland Industrial expo
sition, September 21st next. It will
close October 22d, 1892. . The display of
wealth in the horticultural department
in 1891 attracted marked attention, es
pecially from the large number of east
ern 'visitors who attended the exposition
It did a world of good and the effect is
still being felt all along tne line.
Within the past few days the Indian
police have driven almost 1,000 head of
cattle belonging to whites off the dimin
ished Umatilla reservation. As there ia
barely enough pasturage for - Indian
herds on the reservation there is likely
to be trouble if white men do not keep
their cattle on their own ranges..

and the eventful history of the eternal

art in his happy allusion to Reynolds,

achievements of literature in his famil

that time, famous; he displays his
knowledge of the inner workings of
society and the intrigues by which
thrones are shaken and dynasties are
overthrown in his reference to the salon
of Mrs. Montague and the fair haired
daughters of the house of Brunswick;
and he shows his appreciation of the
drama by recalling Siddons, who, "in
