CKESCOT CITT WACOX ROAD H VTTEK8.
"We publish herewith the text of the
agreement between Horace Gasquet of
Del Norte county, California, and the
members of the Wagon Road commit
tee from Jackson county. It will be
seen what each partv to the agreement
is expected to do. Much preliminary
work has already been done by Mr.
Gasquet, and he is in readiness with a
large force of men to commence on the
grade. All that is necessary now for
the people of Jackson county, is to get
ready with the half of their subscrip
tion to the wagon road fund.
This agreement made und entered
into'on this the 1st day of August,
1881, by and between Horace Gasqutt
of Del Norte county, California, party
of tin; h"r.Nt part, uml Mr. HanW, C.
C. liMi-kiunti, Mux Muller, J. Nunan
and E. D. Foiiiliny of Jackson county,
State of Oregon a committee on the
part of said Jackson county, Orpgon
party of the second partv; Witnes.ieili.
that the saiil party of the first part for
mill in consideration of the sum of
he thousand drllnrs to him in hand
paid, as heieinafter set forth, agrees
iii.d by the-e presents bind himself
uiif the said party of the second part,
or hi successors, to construct- a t;ood
and sul.siaoli.ii wngon road fioiii the
Oieg'n boundary line (on what i.s
known ns ihe Howard survey) to the
foiks uf Smith River, said road to he
G J feet wide, solid loadbed, and of ft
aiaile not to exceed one foot, in sixteen
anil :i half feet, with sufficient turn
iitits for all practical purposes; The
said party of the lirt part further
agrees with the .-aid party of the sec
ond ptrt, fcr and in coiisitleni'ion of
the said sum of live thousand dollars
aforesaid, to ho paid as hereinafter
et forth -to build a good and sub
stantial wagon road from the Forks of
bnnth River aforesaid to the intersec
tion of thp old Crescent City wagon
road at what is known as the Low
Divide in Del Norte county, Califor
nia. Said road to be in all respects
built, as the said road from the Oregon
line to the forks of Smith River, is
agreed to be built said entire road to
be completed and ready for use on or
by the 1st day of June 1882. The
said party of the first part further
agrees that, in case he fails to com-
plete said road, he will on the failure
UAftr.enJ.."3a5been patu 'xS him by the
party of the second part. The said
party of the second part the com
mittee above named on behalf of
Jackson county, Oregon, agrees to
collect the .subscriptions donated to
said road enterprise by the citizens
thereof to the amount of five thousand
dollars and pay the same to the said
party of the first part for and in con
sideration of his constructing said road
as aforesaid said money to be paid as
follows, to-wit: One half at the end
of Thirty days from the date of the
signing of this agreement by the par
lies, and the other half when the said
road shall have been half completed
and received by the party of the second
Jn witness whereof w have here
unto set our hands the day and year
first above written.
As regards the organization of the
wagon road company, we remark that
it is our understanding (though Mr
Gasquet has notthus imformed us) thrt
he has obtained in his own name a
franchise from the board of supervisors
of Del Norte county, nnd he i.s now.
to nil intents and purposes, the wagon
road company. This action of the
board of supervisors makes him thp
owner of the road under the laws of
California, but does not givp him any
right to issue shares of stock, but he
cm do what amounts to the same
thin?, i. e., he can estimate the cost of
he road at so much, and if anyone
will work on it fur nn interest in it,
Gasquet can for such work deed him
a proportionate interest in the rani
.iud franchise. There in some hesitu
tion on the pirt of she Jackson county
committee to sign this contract. The
oiiiual subscription list of 55,000 calls
for a wagon road from Waldo to Cres
eent Cit), but under the new arrange
uieiit the road has been diverted, and
instead of going to Crescent City, it is
now the intention of Mr. Gasquet to
run it to the Smith River Corners to
a point on the coast that Mr. How
ard's survey does not take in. The
committee contend, that what Jackson
county wants is a road to the coast,
but in the subscription list the termi
nus of the road is fixed a Crescent
Uity. The question with the commit
tee is: Can the subscriptions be col
lected by law, since the road has been
diverted, from its original destination?
That there should be some doubt on
'this point is quite natural; and hence
the committee hesitate to enter into
legal obligation. They are willing to
do what they can to raise the sum
required, but the guarantee that they
will give a "gaarant.e of parol." Let
Mr. Gasquet go on with the work and
when he hu the ra4 prtty well un
der way, a citizen's committie from
her with Mr. Howard at its head,
will be sent to examine it. If tht
committM finds, upon examination,
that the road is built according to
agreement, the first $2,500 will be
paid. This is not exactly what Mr.
Gajquet wanta, but from the senti
ments expressed by a number of our
leading citizens it is the best that Jack
son county can do under the circum
stances. A SPLIXDID SBOTflXG.
"Washixgto, August 1. The new
fiscal year opens with an unusually
faeorable exhibit," the reduction in the
public debt for the first month, ending
last Saturday, being over $10,000,000,
againat 5,600,000 for July, 1880.
This large excess of surplus revenue
over that for July of last year is at
tributable entirely to a reduced list of
expenditures, as the aggregate receipts
for the last month are nearly S500,
000 below that for July, 1880. In
the interest bearing debt there is a re
duction of 518,500,000, that being the
amount of five percent bonds redeemed
under the Windom plan of conyrtin
this class of bonds into bonds bearing
3 per cent. This reduction repre
sents the amount of six-percent bonds
redeemed since April 1st. The low-
rate bonds make their appearance for
the first time on the debt statement
published to-day, the amount being a
fraction over 178,000,000. The five-per-cent
bonds that have been convert
ed into lower rate bonds will apppar
on the debt statement for September
1st, but those that are called for re
demption, amounting to about $35
000,000, will not mature until October
1st, after which both the five-per-cent
bonds will entirely disappaer from the
monthly debt statement. The availa
ble cash balance is nearly $155,000,000,
la decrease of SlftnpO.Onn romnared
3,UUU,UUU compared with August I,
1880. The Treasurer's books show
that there is now on hand 44,246,
302 in standard silver dollars; an .in
crease for the month of $100,000.
These figures indicate that during
July the Treasurer has managed to
disburse about 3,000,000. silver dollars
in excess of the number coined during
the same period last year. There is
an increase of outstanding silvor cer
tificates for the month of $1,700,000,
the amount of these certificates now
outstanding being nearly $4,000,000.
Of fractional silver coins there is now
in the Treasury $27,250,000, an in
crease for the month of $0,800,000.
The fact that the Treasury sent out
a large amount of these coin during
July to various sections of the country
in exchange for current funds, shows
that the Mints are manufacturing a
much greater number of fractional
coins than needed. Since January 1st
the increase in the amount of these coins
in the Treasury vault is about $2,500,
oOO. and tbe increase in the silver dol
lars in the .same period is over $12,
000,000. The receipts from customs for the
month just closed were $17,541,188, u
decrease of $945,589 compared with
the corresponding month of last year,
and from internal reienues $12,300,
435, an increase of nearly Sl,200,000
compared with July, 1880. The re
ceipts from miscellaneous sources fell
otr about $750,000 compared with July
of last year.
The debt statement shows a decrease
in the debt during July of $10,078,
023; cash in Treausury, $236,878,190;
gold certificates, deposits outstanding,
$10,740,000; refunding certificates,
$653,850; outstanding legal tenders,
$346,681,016; fractional currency, $7,
098,645; cash available on August 1st,
$154,827,274; debt, less cash in the
Treasury August 1st, $1,830,520,788.
The amount of 6 per cents continued
at 3 J per cent is $1 78,000,000. Bonds
issued to the Pacific railway companies,
interest payable in lawful money, prin
cipal outstanding, $64,923,512; inter
est accured and not yet paid, $323,117;

$15,467,272; interest paid by the com

TUX UAILCOAD EXTE.X1IO.Y.
The Biggs, Butte county "Recordsr,"
learns from a reliable sourco, that the
C. R. P. Co. will extend their C. it O.
branch from Uedding to the State line,
the routo to pass the west side of Mount
Shasta, taking in Yreka, and crossins
the Klamath near the nresnnt ttt-
meaning Bell's, no doubt, the route
formerly surveyed, thence to Jackson
ville and through Oregon to Rosebury,
the present terminus of the railroad
from Portland southward. The mag
nates of the Central Pacific and South
ern Pacific have been conferring with
Henry Villard, or what is better
known as the Villard syndicate of Ore
gon and California, and they together
will build the above extension. It is
also reported that the Villard syndi
cate has purchased the Donahuo road,
with the intention of extending it
through Mendocino, Humboldt and Dl
Norte counties to the Oregon line,
which looks as though we may have two
lines from the Oregon boundary to Sax
Francisco, one via Redding and the
Sacramento Valley, and the other via
Eureka on the coast, west of the Coast
Range. It may be possible, in view of
the determination of Vi lard to reach
San Francisco, which we stated months
ago, he was certain to do in making a
connection of the Northern Pacific
overland road with that city, that the
Central Pacific have come to some
terms in forming a connection with tho
road to Redding which would be very
poor property unless extended to ob
tain more business. We are inclined
to think that even if Villard has pur
chased tho Donahun road, he will meet
the Redding branch in preference, a it
will save the building of several hun
dred miles by his company to reach
San Francisco, leaving the Donahue
road to be extended at some fuluto
period as the business on that route
may justify. That Villard is deter
mined to run the trains of the North
ern Pacific from the East to San Fran
cisco, as well as Puget Sound and Port-

"""-wn ' " cer "flad if tlm
the Oregon line, anu wVlfenanl la
terals for the use of such road, it will
no doubt be more satisfactory and pre
vent the investment of more capital by
the Villard syndicate to build a road
via the coast line to San Francisco bay.
The Villard syndicate undoubtedly con
trols all the Oregon roads with the
Northern Pacific overland road, and
when the Northern Pacific is complet
ed, a person can travel clear around
the United States by starting from a
point in Maine, almost straight west
to the Pacific, thence South to the
Mexican line, thence east to the Atlan
tic, and thenco north to the pcint of

Two wonderful lilliputians are hold
ing receptions in London and meeting
with great success. The "Midgets," as
they are called, are Lucia Zaiato and
General Mite. The general is twenty
one inches high, and weighs about nine
pounds; the lady is nearly the same
height and her weight is thirteen
pounds. Lucia is a Mexican half-caste,
iier parents who accompany her, being
well proportioned persons of middle
size, und her baby hister, two years of
age, is taller and much larger than the
woman of IS. No infant has yet been
found that could wear either hr shoes
or her rings, the largest of which orna
ments is too small to, be placed on aa
ordinary lead pencil, while her brace
lets are not large enough to be wora
on the finger of an adult.
Again an attempt has been made ia
this country, at Philadelphia, to estab
lish a "Marriage Benefit Association,"
the object of which is to assure mem
bers a certain sum uf money oil marry
ing. Such societies should be numer
ous in this country, for young men
will marry when they feel so (Jisposed,
even if they have to borrow a five
dollar bill to pay the clergyman, and
young women abet them in their rash
ness. A fixed sum with which to be
gin married life would prevent a great
many tempers from being spoiled, and,
therefore, it would prevent divorces.
