Receipts of wheat at Minneapolis for
the crop year of 1884 ending tlie 2nd
of the present month, were 32,000,000
bushels, an increase of 9,000,000 bush

The popularity of Gen. Grants book
as evidenced by the large anil rapidly

Judge Deady, of Oregon, has de
cided that pre-emption entries c?n
only be cancelled by due course of law
in the courts, and the general land
office has concluded to let the matter
go before the U. S. supreme court.
Heretofore registers and receivers have
cancelled these entries upon due proof
Qf the forfeiture of rights. If such is
a correct-interpretation of th e law con
gress should change it. It is no better
to cancel by decision of court than by
the register and receiver besides taking
such question through the courts is at

The administration has certainly got
Dr. Loring, the recent commissioner- of
agriculture in a tight place, and as it is
the only case it' has on docket, it is
making the most- of him, says an. ex
change. Mr. Lorfiig is a good sort of
man and didn't steal anything for him
self. But he yielded to temptation,
and finding that he had more money on
hand in one fund than he needed, he
spent it for garden seeds and truck of
that kind, and let democrat congress
men from the rural districts aud such
others as wanted seeds have them to
send out to their constituents. The
seeds were sent, aad then as soorr as
Mr. Cleveland got in he accuses Lor
ing of being short in his accounts. In a
technical sense he is. Nobody but
congressmen have power to convert one
fund into another. They are always
deing it, but the department officer
when he does it is .liable to trouble.
Loring's sin is a pretty Iieinons one in
the eyes of the administration that just
pardttned Mullen, of Cincinnati, for
swindling a hundred and fifty-six col
ored men out of their liberty and their
vote by arresting them on the night
before the eltction without a warrant
and holding them in the cellar of the
station house uutil sundown of election
day, thus swelling Mr. Cleveland's pop
ular majority a little over what Texas
was able to make it by withholding
the returns for a fortnight or so.
Mullen was pardoned because he had
labored under a misapprehension, and
because fhe best Democrats in Cincin
nati wanted him pardoned, and "for
various other reasons." Mr. Loring
will, not be pardoned The president
is going to take the money he erron-eouLy-appropriated
for seeds for the
Democratic congressman tSfc send to
their constituents, out of him or his
bondsmen. When the president gets
hold of a case where he can be terribly
just without nurtmg a .democratic
pocket, he is One of the most terribly
just little old statesmen that the coun
try ever saw.
The news from Central Asia the last
few months has been very disquieting
and does not augur well for the peace
of the world. No sooner is one diffi
culty comparatively over than Russia
raises another. This time it is theTuI
fikar pass she wants. She claims the
defiles of the pass which are immensely
valuable for mi.itary purposes, but an
willing to let the Afghans have the ad
jacent valleys. 11ns the Ameer o
Afghanistan hacked up by England i-.
not disposed to agree to. The Russia i.
government may le honest enough in
her intentions, but she does not exer
cise sufficient control over her officers
in Central Asia who do pretty well
what they p ease. They are beat on
conquest, hate garrison life and lethar
gy aud covet military distinctions and
rewards. Gen. Komaroff has recently
lieeu rewarded for his defeat of the Af
ghan frontier garrison at Ek Tepe by
the raaeat of a sword of honor from
the Czar. This engagement was utter
ly unwarrantable. It was forced on
by Gen. Komaroff and he alone was
responsible for it, yet he is personally
rewarded by the Cz-ir. Other officers
of his imperial majesty covet the same
honor. Tntfiknr piss in Russian hands
ami there is nothing to stop them be
fore the walls of Herat, the fortifica
tions of which town are now being lap-
idly strengthened by the Afghans. The
assault and capture of Herat by some
dashing Russian officer would probably
gain another Russian officer a sword of
honor and would at once lead to war
lietween England and Russia in Af
ghanistan for India, for there could
be no other object which would be im
mensely popular with the Russian Cen
tral Asia armies. Taking the above
facts into account it is highly improba
ble that the Lion and the Bear cannot
long remain at peace, though it is prob
able that a temporary settlement may
se ttlsas win vs. r. r land case.
A recent dispatch gives the follow
ing summary of one of the most im
portant land cases ever decided in the
United States, by Judge Brewer of the
United States circuit court. . "It was
an equity case, in the name of the at
torney general of the United States
against the Kansas City, Lawrence and
Southern Kansas railway. The bill
was filed Jauuary 15, 1883, and alleg
ed that the railroad company unlaw
fully held 2,000,000 acres of land, hav
ing obtained patents to which it was
not entitled. These lands are in Allen
county, and are improved farms worth
several millions of dollars, and the title
to many other lands directly involved.
The railroad company claimed the'.ands
under the transfer from the Missouri,
Kansas and Texas railway company,
and by transfer from the Atchins.m,
Topeka & Santa Fe. Also by an hide
pendent grant to itself. It seems that
the grant to' the Atchinson, Topeka &
Santa Fe company required that com
pany to build a branch down the Neos
ho valley. The grant was- made March
3, 1863. Tne Atchinson, Topeka &
Santa Fe company, instead of building
a branch, transferred its right to do so i
to the Missouri, Kansas & Texas com
pany. Afterward congress made a
grant, July 4, 1866, to the Missouri,
Kansas fc Texas railway for a line, but
not as a branch of the Atchinson, To
peka & Sania Fe company, as required
by the grant to the company "
"Judge Brewer held that the Atchin
son, Topeka & Santa Fe company;
could not transfer its right in the
branch road, and even if it could the;
branch had not been built, but an en-
tirely independent line, belongiug to a
different system. The Missouri, Kan
sas & Texas company had attempted to
get both grants, while only building
one road, aud Judge Brewer held that
the second grant superceded the first,
aud patents issued under the first grant
to the Atchinson, Topeka & Santa Fe
company were void."
"He further held that the company
could not claim the lands under the
act of 1866,' because it had made no
selection under that act."
This decision is no doubt applicable
to many other grants of land to corpo
rations, and shows decidedly that rail
roads can not by some presto change
manner of legerdumain acquire title to
grants of land and not comply with the
provisions of the grant.

The "wrong medicine" business
makes a good second to the "didn'i
knov it was loaded" craze in depriving
human beings if life, says an exchange.
A sad case is reported from Fossil, in
Eastern Oregon, a father administering
a f.t.il potion to his two children, one
three and a half yeare old and the other
sixteen months, "by mistake." The
excuse furnished is that the medicine
-ontained more laudanum than the
lather supposed. What in tne name
of modern intelligence does a man want
to be desing his babies on laudanum
for, even in broken doses. The outcry
against soothing syrup during the past
decade has been sufficiently ieud, it
would seem, to reach the eyes of every
old granny in the land, even that most
persistent and pugnacious of the species,
the male granny, who insists on med
dling around and dosing and disciplin
ing babies and hectoring mothers. Cer
tainly every one of common sene
should have been taught, by this time,
to keep opium in its various compounds
of laudanum, paregoric, Briteman's
drops, etc , etc., entirely away from
the little ones. There mav be some
excuse for the mother, who in the hur
ry and toil of housework and baby
tending, neglects to notice that the can
of concentrated lye is not beyond the
reach of the tip 'oeing and mischevious
toddler; but for the person who delib
erately pours out and thrusts into the
protesting mouth of a child a naseous
dose that causes its death in half an
hour, some more reasonable excuse than
wrong medicine, or didn't know it was
strong, should be urged to clear the
stupi l blunderer f.oni the charge of
The administration has become some
what noted for its invention of terms,
or phrases, for our political vocabula
ry, but noae have been so unique as
the phrase "a misconception of duty."
It was invented as an excuse for par
doning a bulldoser and at the same
time to cover a shameful abuse of ex
ecutive clemency in pardoning him.
The application of the term, too, makes
it simply grotesque and rediculous.
As is known' 't was used in connection
vith or in the statement setting forth
the reasons for extending executive
clemency to a lieutenant of the Giosin
uatti police, who, at the election last
October, arrested over 100 negroes aud
committed them to prison, discharging
them without trial after the polls had
closed. They were arrested without
warrant, imprisoned and were allowed
no communication with any one out
side, and were, as we have said, releas
ed after the polls were closed says the
Coast-Mail. They were imprisoned to
keep them from voting or the repub
lican candi;lates. Such an outrage? as
this might have occurre 1 in the south
under the system of bulldozing obtain
ing there, but it almost secerns incred
i i io that it should have taken place
in a northern city. But it did, and
when the perpetrator was brought to
trial the evidence was overwhelmingly
agiinst him, and he was convicted and
sentenced to one year,s imprisonment.
Before h df the term of bis justly im
posed punishment has expired the pres
ident intervenes in his behalf and liber
ates him. His exertions in depriving
collored man of the right to vote had
been put forth in the interest of the
democratic party, aud the president the
democratic party electeil rewards his
fidelity by relieving him from the pen
alty of his crime against the most ex
alted right and privilege of American
citizenship. The ground of his par
don is his previous goon character and
the possibility that he may have mis
apprehen led the duties of his ottW.
We can see no excuse for Cleveland's
statement for his clemency -the crime
proved was one of the most heinous,
striking as it did at the foundation of
our institutions, for if the freedom of
the individual voter, however weak
and huaible, cannot be protected
against oppressions, (Mir" govern neat is
hot a gvBBrutnent of liberty, bat of
usurptt.n. .'Atiu, there is another
feature in th aff.itragihvfc which the
Americin people ha ve protested an I do
protest. It accords an indorsement
and encouragement to the methods
which are known so certainly to have
made the south solid. The Cincinatti
episode was in keeping with the efforts
of Meade and others in Copiah county,
Miss., anil if the Cincinatti policeman
was excused on the ground of misap
prehending his duties, Miere was no
c insistency in not pardoning Meade
and not allowing him to retain the
office to which he was appointed.
Meade bulldozed for the democracy in
Mississippi, and the police, officer bull
dozed for the party in Cincinnati.
That is all there is to it, and if one
was guilty of conduct warmnting his
removal from office the other had
been proved in court unworthy of the
liherty which the president has be
stowed upor: him. But the worst fea
ture, as we say, of the whole proceed
ing, is the indorsement the president's
clemency ghes to bulldozing as an
agency in politics, or at elections, and
the encouragement it gives to zealous
democrits to inaugurate in the uerth
the plans that make the elections go
unanimously democratic in the south.
It is a proclamation to the people
that no matter how "offensive ' the
partisanship of a democrat may be, he
will have nothing to far from the
present administration, no matter hov.
guilty and worthy of punishment the
law may adjudge him.
