The Canon Mint.
Washington, April 24. Sevoral por
sons appeared before the house committee
to-day to urge the claims of different cities
In tho Mississippi valley, whither it Is
proponed to move the mint from Carson.
It. M. Daggett, member of the house from
Nevada, was heard by the committee in
behalf of retention of tho mint at Carson
City, in that state, and strenuously op
posed the proposition of dismantling the
mint thero and romoving the machin
ery to somo point in the Mississippi vul
loy. lie admitted, however, that owing
to the excessivo charges of the express
companies for the traiispotation of silver
coin, the products of the mines of Nevada
wore shipped in bullion to the San Fran
cisco mint and there coined, and tho coin
shipped to Washington and New York
cheaper than if shipped from Carson,
though Carson is 300 miles nearer Wash
ington'and New York than is Ban Fran
cisco. This was the only reason he could
Kive for the failure of tne government to
obtain a sufliuiont amount of bullion at the
Carson City mint to keep it running
twelve mouths in tho your, instead of
three, as at present.'

The ussassinotion of DoYoung by Kalloch,
the son of the present mayor of San
t7rtititturw ! tha Intent act in the triiurical
drama which bus so long excitod the peo
ple of that city. DeYoung as on editor
was fond of what is known as sensational
Journalism. To be talkod about was his
"highest aim In life. Ho assailed thosonior
KallochV character (which is bad enough)
from a journalistic point of view rather
than from any enso of moral duty. This
course inevitably engendered a feud.
Kalloch, the elder, being assailed, retorted
In kind and returned tilth for filth. The
editor surprised at finding bis own
weapons used aitalnst him attempted to
kill his antagonist. His attack was as
cowardly as that by which he subsequent
ly lost his life. Kalloch did not die, Do
Young's pistol shot made him mayor of
San Francisco. The quarrel was renewed
with vigor, and Kalloch's son taking the
law Into his own hands deliberately as
sassinated DeYoung. Tho murderod man
was endowed with great natural gifts.
Moiallv he was a better man than either
of the Kallochs. lie was basely killed but
he a an evil and disturbing influence
in the world. His death will not he re
gretted au an universal calamity. It Is a
calamity to any people that such men as
the Kallochs should have cast their lot
A 1UI Lot.
The rWfiMiw savs: San Francisco dis
patches show the e'lforUDeYouns's Iriends
are making to turn public sentiment
strongly against the murderer. It is now
denied that DeYoung had any connection
with tho pamphlet about Kalloch, and
quite as plausible a story is told on this
side as the other. An attempt will also
be made evidently to implicate the elder
Kalloch and show that the murder was
the result of a conspiracy. This is as im
probable as it is imiKwwible. Whatever
may be said of the elder Kalloch, he is not
a fool, and must know the utter folly of
murder, simply regarding it as policy. It
is noticeable that tha people of San Fran
cisco do not seem to mourn very much
ntlhur tha mm ha has died or the man
vhonneht tn ilie. and have the air of
those who wish it had beeu a Kilkenny
The OiwavTcwtf Adrtirr comments on
tha DeYoung case as follows: "Tha cas
shows tha lawless spirit in that city. De
Young shot tha elder Kalloch; no pun
ishment was meted out to him, and he
boasted that ha ex petted none. Why
should not Young Kalloch think that if
DsYoung ceo Id shoot his father with im
punity that fca might safely shoot tha
latter. The judge who allowed DeYoung
to run at large should share in tha respon
sibility of DeYouoi's murder."

Xrw York. April 29. The H'orM com
ments: After Mayor Kalloch's wretched
exhibition of himself in tho letter in
which he discussed the ecclesiastical pen
alties which his son might incur for uitir
tier, people will naturally suspect that
K.il!och suborned tne eviaoni perjury
which was committed at the inquost upon
tho body of DeYoung. It Reeins perfectly
plain that the perjurer has obtained per
mission to view the body before the in
quest in order to. faUricute a story that
would be consistent with the known facts
of the murder. He did not succeed in
fabricating such a story. In fact, his story
fell to pieces as soon as it was touched.
No man. of course, devised or uttered a
story or this kind and faced the risk of
puniBiimcnt ior perjury ior iiuuuuk. no
was hirod to tell the story, ami the most
natural supposition is that ho wns hired
by Kalloch. Kalloch has a warm personal
interest In getting perjuries commuted in
favor of his son. Kalloch is not commonly
supposed to be too good to concert or pro
cure or commit perjury for a motive much
weaker than to save the lite oi nis son.
Kalloch's letter and this testimony will
intensify the feeling with which the de
cent people of San Francisco regard their
Home Interfiling Facts ana recuiaUons.
The Commcrcidf Bulletin thinks that the
condition of Kuropeun crops indicates the
probability ot generally good nurvetis,
and that the coining wheat crop in the
United States will probably equal that of
1879. Judging from the average of the
last five good years In Europe, the lutter
will require ol the United States ttiis year
52 millions of bushels for absolute con
sumption, to say nothing of what may
be neoded to repleuish reduced stocks,
and wo shall have a surplus of 133 mil
lions for export. It seems reasonable to
estimate that our present rate of wheat
production will be found to exceed the
normal demand for home and foreign
markets by about 100 million bushels.
Under these circumstances it becomes a
grave question to to what is to bo the

There is no doubt that wine will command

Inquest in the DeYoung Cnee.
San Francisco, April 27. The inquest
in the DeYoung case commenced this af
ternoon. Inquiry was confined to circum
stances immediately connected with tho
murder. The testimony thus far agrees
substantially with reports heretofore tele
grapbod. The DeVonuR Inquest.
San Francisco, April 28. The inquest
in the DeYoung case was concluded this
evening. All the evidence taken was
substantially the same as reports hereto
fore telegraphed, with one exception. A
man giving his name 'as John Clemet
shaw, testified that at the time of the
shooting be was look through a window
of the Chronicle counting room and saw
Kalloch and DeYoung facing each other,
the latter leaning against a counter. Di
rectly DeYoung straightened himselfldre w
a pistol from his overcoat pocket and fired
at KallOch. Tho latter then drew and
began firing when DeYoung ran. The
remainder of his evidence was in accord
ance with the other testimony. Tho fact
that ClemetshttW had previously endeav
ored to obtain permission to view the
body of the deceased, bringing a note from
the coroner to the sheriff's otlice, in which
he was introduced as Mr. Watson, tended
to discredit his testimony, and the direct
evidence of other eye witnesses and the
fuct that De Young's pistol was found not
to have been discharged decided thejury
to attach no weight to his testimony, and
after brief deliberation they returned a
verdict charging Kalloch with murder.
Clemetahaw explained his change of
name by stating that he hud adopted the
namo of Watson as a matter of conven
ience, his own name being difficult to

To-day proceedings relating to the es
tate of the Into W. S. O'Brien again came
up in the superior court, Judge Finn pre
siding. The point under consideration
was the question of confirming the first
nnuual report of the executors, which was
some months ago referred to William A.
Stuart, referee selected bv Mvrick, then
probate judge. Messrs. Hulladay & Tre
liune, representing John II. Burke, ob
jected to confirmation on the ground that
the accounting did not show all the prop
erty of the inventory. After adjournment
the judge said: I will confirm the report
and direct the administrator to charge
himself with all property in the inventory
not included in accounting. Advances to
heirs shall be charged against the same.
The decision is regurded as a point in
favor of Messrs. Halladay & Trehune,
Inasmuch as it requires accounting tor all
property desiginated in the inventory,
which includes Oakland real estate in
vestments. It is understood that the
Oakland investments are in such shape
that the executors cannot mako an esti
mate of their value. Some two or three
advances made by executors are not to be
charged to the estate at the present time.

Yean Kalloch PnhlWhre a Card with

afternoon publishes the following card
from young Kalloch:
Editor i'oat I have not a word to sav
about the facts or merits of my case. I
wish i. to be tried iu the ordinary way.
Fair play, especially towards a" man
charged with murder is supposed to be
characteristic of American communities,
but I expect no uir play on or before my
triul, if the fast men and corrupt detec
tives who surround the OironkU office
and assume to run this city can prevent
it. It is infamous that public officers who
are paid by the community should work
illegitimately for private individuals, and
convert what ought to be honorable pros
ecution into malignant persecution. The
drivel published in the Chronicle of last
Sunday shows how some of our detec
tives will invade private houses and try
to frighten ignorant people. As for tha
arrest of Clemetohaw, I have this to tj:
I do not know the man and I make no
statemeut aa to my version of what trans
pired. I do not say whether his testimony
is correct or incorrect, but I do declare
that he bad no motive so far aa I can sea
to conceal or pervert the truth, and that
there is nothing in his evidence to indi
cate perjury. It looks to me as If hii

Tbe PoH in another column says: u0'w-'
ever improbable it may appear in tbe face
of testimony given at tho luonoft on tbe

it is worth; but there is no possible doubt
that such evidence will be offered and

The Sagacious Wasp. '
I had always supposed that even so
formidable an insect as a wasp would
hardly want anything to do with a good,
full grown spider, for I knew enough of
the combativeness of the latter to pre
sume that lie would not meekly submit
to the sacrifice of his progeny to satisfy
the appetite of a wasp. But one day I
saw a little demonstration which made
the whole thing very clear to mo. You
know of the careful manner in which the
spider builds and incloses the nest in
which his young are brought forth and
reared ? Well, I was observing one of
these nests one morning, whoa I saw a
mud wasp come buzzing along and
alight within an inch or two of it, on the
side opposite the opening. Af tor all was
quiet he proceeded with his little game
of strategy. Creeping noiselessly around
toward the opening or entrance to the
nest he stopped a littlo short of it, and
for a moment remained perfectly quiet.
Then reaching out one of his antennie he
wriggled it before the opening and with
drew it. This overture had the desired
effect, for the boss of the nest, as large a
spider as one ordinarily sees, came out
to see what was wrong and to sot it to
rights. No sooner had tho spider
emerged to that point where he was at
the worst disadvantage, than the wasp,
with a movement quicker than a wink,
swung the rear portion of his body
around and thrust his sting through the
body of his foe, killing him easily and
almost instantly. The experiment was
repeated on tho part of tho wasp, and
when there was no response from the in
side he becamo satisfied, probably, that
he held the fort. At all events, he pro
ceeded to enter the nast and slaughter
the young spiders, which were afterward
lugged off, one at a time. You see this
accounts fully for the spider linings
which we always see in the nosts of mud
wasps, and makes all as clear as if that
particular wasp had told me beforehand
just what he proposed by his strategy to
accomplish. Now it is just such demon
strations as this which must convince us
of the intelligence of the lower animals,
differing only in degree ond development
from the intelligence of man. Setn

A table in the last report of the I tics
State Insane Atylum, giving the occupa
tions of the patients, shows that by far
the largest number (282 in a total of 410)
whose occupation was known were farm
er's housekeepers, meaning, we suppose,
farmers wives, luborers and domestic ser
vants. This illustrates that a monoto
nous and toilsomelife, with little or no re
laxation or recreation, is more liable to
unsettle the mind and destroy the reason,
than a life of greater mental and social
activity. Most of the patients were native
Americans, and married. Their ages in
the main were from twenty to forty ; very
few were Illiterate ; but few also had mow
than a common school education. In
cases but 122 inherited any taint of insan
ity: 205 patients remained not over six
months, and HI not over two monthf,
showing that the malady was not severe.
Intemperance was a minor cause eleven
per cent. Female disorders causes about
twelve per cent., while the prime cause
in the largest num.ler of cases was ill
health, stimulated by overwork, grie'.
anxiety and sleeplessness. To the causes
cited above which encourage mental dis
turbances, we would add dysepsia, due
to poor or ill-cooked food. In this connec
tion we would refer to the admirable
paper on the health of Massachusetts far
mers, by Dr. J. F. Adams, of Pittsfield, ia
the report of the Massachusetts State
Board af Health for 1874, in whichalarge
amount of interesting data is given, re
garding tbe ill health of the farmers, ana
especially of their wives and daughters.
Overwork, exposure, poor food, unsani
tary dwellings, impure water, niiventilat
ed bed-rooms and insufficient recreation,
are all mentioned aa the chief causes, w
sickness amoung this class. It is denied
that farmers are specially liable to insan

are not altogether wanting, as shown oy
