We are sorry to learn that a large
number of our merchants who hold big
bills against A. S. Collins and wife can
not lawfully attach the money now held
in custody for the latter by our county
clerk. We also hear that all their goods
(wonder if that fine cloak, those silks
and velvets, gotten under false pretense
from II . Herbring.are among them?) are
still stored in the Wasco warehouse
mwaiting shipment to the more conge
nial climate of Chicago. The swindling
now-a-days is carried on o fine and suc
cessfully that we are not in the least
surprised to hear that several of our
inerehauts have shut down on the credit
A case of interest to people employing
domestic help is rejiorted from Boston.
There the servant girl of a lawyer was
recently discharged. Being a poor lone
female, she sought as best she knew to
get even. To her Bimple mind the idea
suggested itself thatto poison the lawyer
would be a proper manifestation of dig
nity aggrieved, and she acted promptly.
The luwyer began to die so fust that he
could not file a demurrer, and a stay of
proceedings was granted only through
the efforts of medical friends.
Kmekson once said he was under no
obligation to think today what he
thought yesterday. That was the blunt
expression of a bit of philosophy recog
nised to a greater or less degree by all
the great minds of earth, and when
Chamberlain quotes the past anti-home
rule utterances of four liberal ministers
now leading the way in a proposal to es
tablish an Irish parliament, he weakenB
his own cause. He merely argues that
while others, have advanced in states
manship, learning and liberality, he has
been standing still by the established
systems of the dying past.
rill 111. The urincipal lighting
scenes, is done bv twd great luminaries,
one ofVhich represents thesun, for day
light effects, and the other the moon,
for the night scenes. The sun cau
throw 100,000 candle power of light;
enmd to about fifty arc lights. By -chanical
appliances any portion of this
whole can be used as well the entire
.i.,l us the sun is a movable
light, the shadows of morning and even
ing can be shown without the aid of
paint. The sun travels an orbit from
east to west and is so arranged that It
can be raised or lowered at the will of
the engineer, who controls the machin
ery. By this device it is possible to
give the effect of the sun at the horizon,
which could not be given in any other
wav. and bv another new invention the
sunlight is made to pass through differ
ent colored mediums to give the pecu
liar tints of morning and evening, and
in the Spectatorium the greater light of
nature can bo really said to rise and set.
The second luminary, the moon, has
about 20,000 candle power and is simi
larly controlled. There are, in addition
to these two lights, numerous diffusers
which do uot appear to the audience at
all, but assist greatly in the realistic
ft iimiw mills hut it pours. Now is
the season to bring out legislative rot- j
tenness, from that of a powerful nation j
down to a borough. France started the
ball rolling in the Panama vcaudal,
showing a magnitude of bribery unpar
alleled in the history of the world, and
comprising a steal of 15.000,000. The
latest corruption is developed in Minne
sota. The senate committee report will
be the most sensational ever prepared
bv a legislative committee and is all
based on sworn testimony. Frauds
and conspiracy of the most gi
gantic and far-reaching character
are said to have been unearthed. It is
claimed the Htato has been defrauded
lireeilv mid indirectly out of hundreds
of thousands of dollars. Many j
persons hitherto above suspicion are
said to be involved and besmirched by ;
the committee's findings. Innumerable
false homestead entries, soldiers' pre
emptions and Indian allotments, all
made on powers of attorney by means
of straw, in the interests of corporations,
are said to have been disclosed.

Trusts are one of the greatest evils of
modem times. They are only the legal
means to rob the people. In order to
show th's more plainly, we will refer to
the great rublier trust that has been in
oiieration since April 1. The majority
of the great rublier factories in the east
formed a trust last year in order to
raise the price of their output. Two or
three firms (amongst them the great
Woonsocket Bublier Co.,) remained out
side, but It seems now that all have
combined, as the price of rubber boots,
rubber shoes, etc., has advanced fully X0
per cent, since April 1. Think of it,
farmers and laboring men, an advance
of 30 per cent, all at once! This means,
for instance, that you have to pay 4.00
for a pair of boots that yon ould buy for
:i.00 last winter. Thus it will be seen
that trusts are on the increase. Almost
every line of industry is on the road to
that end. It may he the infection was
communicated from the tendency of
everything to orgaiiir.o and light with
the benefit of number. But latterly
capital has apfn-ared to force the fight-

April 27th is the birthday of Cien.
Grant and will be commemorated at his
old home in Galena, 111. It would be a
fitting act for republican clubs through
out the country to make some observance
of this event. Honors to great national
and party leaders are among the best
methods of fostering a patriotic and
honest party sentiment. Why not pay
a similar tribute to the memory of those
other great, republicans, Ulysses S.
Grant and James G. Blaine.
To a birth notice in a Southern Cali
fornia paper the following remarks are
added by the editor: "The child is the
first Dutch infant born in the Hun Luis
Valley. The notice is written by a
Dane, put in type by a Mormon, the
proof is read by an American, the type
placed in the 'form' by a German, and
the paper is printed bya Mexican. This
affords an interesting notion of the com
posite character of the great American
people of the far Kouthwest."
A statistician who has been looking
into the matter of divorce has found that
the proportion of divorces to population
is least in Ireland only one divorce to
every 400,000 inhabitants. In the
United States the proportion of divorces
is ominously large, 8S.71 to every 100,000
population, the largest known, In fact,
save in Japan, the figures for that happy
empire being 608.46 divorces to every
A news item in another column re
lates that workmen and a large install
ment of machinery have lieen put to
work at the Monoghan quarry, six miles
from the locks; also that the family of
the senior Day has arrived. All reports
received during the last two weeks are
confirmatory that at last, work is to lie
hastened on the locks, and that in
eighteen months the dreams and hope
of twenty-five years will be realized.
The Vermont Board of Agriculture
finds that many of the farm in the state
which were abandoned some years ago
re becoming gradually taken up. This
points to a revival of farming in New
Kngland, and it is an encouraging sign.
The science of farming has been greatly
developed in the last fifteen years, with
resultant thrift where there bad been
haphazard methods and waste.
A oiunntic trust has been fornix
among the ty)e founders of the 1'iiile.i
States, comprising twenty-three of
them, who have heretofore controlled
about 83 per cent, of the business of the
United States. There are four firms
outside of the trust, and theee should
be favored by every paper, large and
small, throughout America. These are

Ambrose Bierce, in his Sunday Morn
ing Examiner column, satirically crit
icizes Madge Morris, the Kan Diego
poetess, for saying that coyotes howl.
According to Bierce, coyotes bark and
yelp, but never howl. Madge insists
that she was right and lias submitted
the question to Long, professor in the
state of California for an answer. Sixty
million people are waiting in breathless
suspense for a solution of the question.
It i hard for land lubber to under
stand sea methods. If a ship is In dis
tress and liable to lie wrecked a tug boat
demands a price equal to confiscation to
rescue her. If refused, the steamer
smilingly move away, and as a result
many a noble ship and brave seaman's
bones blench on the sands. On shore
all hand would rush to the rescue;
thought of comiiensalion would lie an
after consideration. Its true, rescuing
is a part of tug boat business, but laws
regulating the fee should be established.
