' WASHINGTON NEWS Budd's Ait , -Opium BUI. Washington, March 22. The Critic to aisjht says: '.'i?udd of Caliioruia is one of She beet posted men in congress on the Cfu nese question. He is working for the pas sage of his bill to prohibit and punish the importation of opium or any of its various concomitante, which are used in opiuin smoking dens so freely on the I'acirie coast. He aays in the preamble to his bill that the habit and curse of opium smoking have been introduced among our people and is epeading with .leartul rapidity, under the foste.4dg care of the Chinese. He believes the increaset.'f the j;abt has been upwards of 800 er cent, daring the Tjastjyear, the importation of opium increasing from S0,)00 to 250,000 pounds daring the last year. Add to this the rediculous proposition to reduce the duty 20 per cent, and you have ,'the climax. This is winking at crime; it is nothing short of crime, for the habit of op ium smoking cannot be overcome when once acquired. Its k'tims w(ilj not live in any place where the drug cannot be pro cured. Fifty per cent, of the Chinese popu lation oil the Pacific coast are addicted to the habit, and the cessation of the importa tion of the drug would cause a lare exodus of the people. Mr. Budd proposes a law that will punish anyone win imports or who is interested in having imported any of the tinctures of opium, laudanum, ect., by a fine of $5C0O, or imprisonment not toxceed five years. The measure forbids the sale of the drug aL." The Northern Pacific. Washington, March 18. Judge Payson will soon make a motion to pass the bill to forfeit the land grant of the Northern Pacific under a suspension of the rules. Officials of the road are contesting this at every point. The points they make are .these : First The grant is non-forfeitable in terms. Congress refused to put a provision in the charter of the company that the land should revert to the public domain for .a breach of the conditions prescribed. In its place a section was inserted which gives cougress the right only "to do all acts and things which may be needful and necessary to insure a speedy completion of the road." Second if congress had any right to forfeit the grant, that light was waived when the government through its executive department permitted the company to go on and build 1200 miles of the road after the time limit expired, and officially examined and ecepted the road section by section, knowing that such acceptance gave the com pany authority, under an act of congress, to issue bonds which were a lien on the entire grant. Third That the government further waived the right, if any existed, to take possession of any part of the grant for a failure to complete the road within the pre scribed -,ime whenever it took 2.50 an acre iroiu seiners pre-empting puhlic lands within the limits of the grant, instead of 31.25, which is the price of such lands out si ie of railroad grant limits. Fourth The holders both of the bonds and the "preferred stock of the company have acquired vested rights of property iu .the entire grant which cougress cannot now destroy. The courts would protect these rights if congress should attempt to set them aside. Cheeky Cattle Men. Washington, March 24. Secretary Teller to-day sent to the house a supple mental report relative to the unlawful fencing of public lands in Nebraska. The report is a special one by the United States deputy surveyor, who jijs: "The whole country embraced in my district, north western Nebraska, is occupied and run by capitalists, engaged in cattle-raising, who have hundreds of miles of wire fence con structed, inclosing all desirable land, in cluding water courses, to form bairiers for their cattle and prevent settlers occupying the land. They also repieseut that they have desert and timber claims upon the land they have enclosed. The fences are Vuilt often so as to close several sections in one stock ranch, and ranches are joined to gether from mountains clear round to mountains. Again persons going there in tending to settle are notified that if they settle on the land the ranchmen will freeze them out. They will not employ " a man who settles on or claims lands, and he can not get employment from any cattle men in the whole country. My chief object iu ad dressing yon is po report the wholesale de struction of valuable timber on government land in this whole region by cattle men, who pretend to own and raise it. There were thousands of logs cut last summer and hau'ed to accessible points, to be used as fences, corrals, landing shutes and houses in Nebraska aud Wyoming. " Petition for Artesian Wells. Washington, March 25. Dolph yester day presented to the senate a letter frrtm the governor of Oregon, indorsing another from John Minto, a prominent sheep raiser in that state, in which the suggestion was made that the government should make an appropriation to test the artesian well sys tem for the country lying beyond the range in Eastern Oregon. Minto states that a great deal of laud in that part of the state is ex cellent for agricultural and grazing purposes, if watered, and that if a system of artesian wells could be established and made success ful, it would result in rapidly settling the country up. Minto mentions the fact that 'many artesian wells have been made a suc cess in California and other parts of the Pa cific :oast. At a suggestion of Dolph, ths letters weie referred to the committee on public lands, who, after consideration, may report reccomending a sufficient sum for experiments by the secretary of the interior o be pat in the general appropriation bill. Experiments such as these suggested by Minto have been made in Colorado, but with only partial success. EASTERN STATES. Additional Funds. New York, March 23. The Tribune ays: The,vlregon .liailwa and Navigation Company ,iias negotiated $3,000,000 of its .lew issue of bonds through Boston bankers. The authorized issue .is oyer $14,000,000, of .vhich yearly $b',000,()v0..was reserved to re tire prior bonds and $1. 200,00). to fay out standing script certificates. The balance of .he issue was to have been taken by Baring 3ros. of London, but before the negotiation closed it jtaa discovered that the recent iaw of Oregon relating to mortgages impair, ed the validity of .these bonds. Particulars of the present sale ha ve not been made pub lic. Private dispatches from President Coolidge received yesterday announced that the sale had been made and that the com pany would proceed at once to finish its branch to Huntington to a junction with the Oregon Short Line, which has been practic ally completed by the Union Pacific railway. About 100 miles remain to be built, but con siderable work has been done and it is ex pected that the line will be completed be fore next fall. New York, March 23. An officer of the Northern Pacific Rajlroad Company said yesterday that the report that Land Com missioner Lamborp had been asked to resign was wholly without foundation. "Lamborn has been summoned from St. Paul," ha said, "merely to go to Washington. He will furnish congress with needed information about the laud department of the compauy. We wanted to submit the best evidence in our possession against some of tho foolish charges made in opposition to the Co. about land. We, therefore, sent for our land com missioner. Lamborn is regarded as an ex cellent and -.ndustrious officer, .wiiose resig nation would be received with regret." New York, March 23. The Sun's spec ial from St. Paul says: "Immigration has begun early and with a rush. The North ern Pacific had twelve cars full of passengers more than 000 in all, last night westward bound. A liberal portion were for Wash ington territory and Oregon. To-night's train had sixteen cars, that required two engines to pull it into Fargo. " Senator Sherman Interviewed. Philadelphia, March 24. A Washing ton special to the Press gives an interview with Senator Sherman regarding the issues now before the republicans. This is the first time Sherman has given his views for publication this year, "What will be the vital issues of the can vass ?" asked the interviewer. "The tariff aud the southern question. The attitude of the democratic party upon the economic question, as well as the action of the present house, has clearly marked out the tariff as the leading issue, and the passage of the Morrison bill very sharply defines the standing of the two parties upon this question. The republican party has a consistent record in favor of protec tion, and it was a mistake to have marred it by the reduction made in the bill passed by the last congress. Especially is this true of the attack made On the wool industry, in which a million of farmers are interested. The true republican position is to stand firmly for protection, and leave tariff agita tion to the democracy." Next to the tariff the southern problem will probably be the most important issue. This question must be boldly met, and the sooner the better. This year we will have a new phase of it. There will be an united south against the business as well as the political forces of the north. Despite their material interests they will" follow a free trade president and party often against con viction. Because of their ambition to get control of the, national administration. There is a strong protection sentiment in the south, but it will not appear in a presi dential year, and that section will for a long time, perhps always, be democratic. I think there will be no difficulty in cary iug Ohio this year a good candidate can do it. I am in no sense a candidate, and would not make an effort for the nomina tion. A united and enthusiastic party is more important than one man. Hence. I am ' for bending every energy for the first pui pose and am not a candidate." Postal Telegraph Question. Washington, March 25. The house committee on PostofHces and post roads met again this morning to consider the schemes of a postal telegraph. Before they took up action on the bill intreduced by Mooney of Mississippi yesterday, constituting the Mackey Postal Telegraph Company the gov ernment's agent for telegraphy. Summer of California appeared before the committee to oppose the bill, and made an elaborate ar gument, showing the technicle features of the measure to be more objectional than its other features. This bill was originally brought into the committee without introduction in the house, and in manuscript form. This was objected to by several members, and Mooney, there fore, introduced it in the house in order to get it printed, and is not committed to its provisions. In his argument Sumner said that if the confcnittee intended to indorse the propo sition to farm out the telegraph business, it might as well give up all idea of a postal telegraph this session, for no such scheme could pass the house. He thought it would be as ridiculous to turn government tele graphing over to a corporation such as the Mackey company, as to turn the postoffice department or mail carrying over to rail ways. Summer jumped at the proviso in the bill enacting that service shall be extend ed to the Pacific coast in seven years. He thanked the agent of the Mackey company who was present, for his kindness in allow ing tbe benighted Pacific coast to partici pate in the benefits of the postal telegraph seven years after it had been established in the eaat.

A Fence has been secured which puts an end to all such trouble. A wire lock has been invented, which when attached to a fence, secures it against the most breachy animals, EXPLANATION:- When a rail fe.ice is properly tuilt, laying the worm S 1-2 feet wide, and taking pains to lay the rails up Ann and square, then attach the "lock and you have a tence that will tum the breachiest animals. As to its merits, it is strong and durable a single rail cannot be moved out of place. It require no stakes, posts or riders, and in addition to this it is the chea)est. fence that can be built with rails; it saves from SB to 10 on a hundred panels of fence, and you have a stronger and better fence. The same rails required to build UK) pands of stake and rider fence will build 125 panels of this fence by u-ing HORN'S WlKfei LOCK. No stakes ari in the way of moving fence corners, heaving out by frost, or rotting off, thereby letting fence down or stock in your fields to destroy the crop. This fence is braced in every Ijirection, whether up hill, down hill or side hill, and locked with a lever so strong that nothing AiJ of a tornado will move a rail. Stock on either side can not possibly move the top rail. This wire Ipcfc jmg patented April 11, 18is2 numbered 25ti,4&. G. A.
