It la Possible a Pacific Coast. Man
Washington, Feb. 7. News that
Harrison has decided upon a California
man for secretary of the treasury would
no doubt be a very happy surprise to the
Pacific coast, and would perhaps be
received with some doubt. Neverthe-
lees there are reasons for believing that
the president is seriously considering a
facihc coast man for the place. Infor
mation comes from Senator Stanford,
who says he believes the president will
appoint John F. Swift, of San Francisco,
who is our present minister to Japan.
The president, in his recent message to
congress asking an extension of time in
which he ' could name Secretary
Windom's successor, gave as the reason
for his request that it was deemed advis
able to appoint some one residing at a
considerable distance from Washington,
there should be time allowed for him to
reach Washington to qualify, etc. It is
well known that Harrison and Swift are
warm personal friends, and that when
the Harrison administration was organ
ized the president seriously considered
the name of John F. Swift for a cabinet
position, and the latter might have been
appointed but for the fact that California
had another candidate for a cabinet posi
tion in the person of Hon. Wm. EBtee.
THE WORLD'S FAIR.
England Officially Invited.
London, Feb. 7. Lord Salisbury,
British prime minister, has received,
through the United States legation, an
official invitation from the United States
government requesting Great Britian to
take part in the world's fair which is to
be held m Chicago in 18U3.
The .French May Come.
Pabis. Feb. 7. M. Berger, a director
of the late exposition, said today:
Favorable action by France on the
American invitation to the Chicago ex
position is certain. The only difficulty
is the apathy of the merchants and
others. The McKinley tariff has some
what chilled the ardor of those who
have been exhibitors, but I think the
feeling is changing.
Seattle's Police Force Causing So End
Seattle, Feb. 7. The city council met
tonight, and in the house of delegates
the killing of a man in a prizefight in a
variety theater was made the text for
merciless scoring of the police. The
mavor was accused of beinar in league
! witn the gamblers and the chief subser
vient to lum. One member saia tney
ought to be impeached, and it was said
that a prominent police official had re
ceived a solid silver service from the
"Whitechapel" classes as a bid for im
munity. The house passed ordinances
reducing the force from 83 to 70, and
abolishing the detective force entirely.
A resolution was also passed directing
the police commissioners to inquire into
the particulars of the fatal fight, and the
existence of gambling houses. A threat
was made in the debate that unless there
was an improvement the house would
refuse to vote any appropriations for
Made Sport of Officers.
San xbancisco, ieb. 7. tor some
time past this city has been overrun
with foot-pads and safe-cracker, and
about three weeks ago a set of safe
crackers' tools were found hidden in an
alley. Thinking that the theives would
return for their tools, Chief of Police
Crowley stationed a watch where the
hiding place could be scrutinized and
waited for the thieves. About 12 o'clock
last night the officer on watch woke up
just astwo men were making off with
the tools, and he ordered them to halt
They refused to obey, and he commenced
shooting, and, although the block was
surrounded by ten officers, the thieves
got away. The police authorities tried
to cover the matter up, but were unsuc
cessful, and they are making jokes of it
tonight in all the theaters and saloons
A Retaliatory Resolution.
Denver, Feb. 7. On learning of the
fact that a nifmber of members of the
Chicago Board of Trade had petitioned
congress not to pass the free coinage act,
Representative Foppinge this morning
introduced in the Colorado legislature
the following resolution :
That the state of Colorado take no part
in the World's Columbian exposition, to
be held in Chicago, and urge the citizens
of Colorado to divert their trade, so far
as possible, to some other western city
than Chicago, where some interest is
manifested in the great interests of the

IT IS ABOUT TIME.
The Government to Begin Suit Against
the Central and Union Pacific.
Washington, Feb. 9. It is learned
from a letter recently sent by Taylor,
commissioner of railroads to the secre
tary of the inferior, that action is about
to be taken under a recent decision of
the supreme court of the United States
in the case of the United States vs. the
Central Pacific railroad.
- Commissioner Taylor has had a con
ference with the acting secretary of the
treasury with a view of getting a full
report of all bills for services of the
Union and Central Pacific companies
now on file in the treasury department
and not acted upon. It is intended to
ascertain accurately the state of accounts
between the government and these
roads and then insist upon prompt pay
ment of amount found to be due.
ANOTHER ATTACK ON MILES.
This Time It Is Brought by Jefferson
Chicago, Feb. 7. In the memoirs of
Jefferson Davis, recently published by
his widow, many pages are devoted to a
description of the "Tortures -of Fortress
Monroe," of which district tieneral
Miles, now at the head of the division of
the Missouri, was in command at the
time Davis was imprisoned there. Mrs.
Davis charges General Miles with cruelty
to the president of the confederacy. He
is charged with shackling Davis by
brutal force, keeping him in a vermin
infested cell, withholding his clothes and
linen and making souvenirs of his pos
sessions, even to his hair, when he had
it cut. General Miles was interviewed
today in regard to the matter. He said
lie did not mind the attack, and added :
Of course TAlrs. .Davis feels bitter
toward me, as she probably does toward
many more northern soldiers. While
caring nothing at all for anything sne
may say or write, I would call your at
tention to the fact that Jefferson Davis
managed to survive my craei treatment
and lived twenty years after, finally
dying of old age. That would hardly
nave been the case i think, n ne naa
been subjected to such horrible abuses.
There is not a particle of truth in the
statements made by his wife. The fact
is Jefferson Davis never was in better
trim in his life than when he was liber
ated. Encouraging to Hop-Growers.
Eugene, Feb. 7. The Lane county
hop-growers' associaton was to have
held its annual meeting today for elec
tion of officers, but as the "attendance
was small they adjourned for two weeks.
Buyers are offering today to contract
hops from the crop of 1891 at 16 cents
per pound which is very encouraging to
the growers. The hop men of this county
.are preparing to make extra exertions,
and will produce more hope for the mar
ket than ever before.
I'atti Arrested In Berlin.
Bkri.iv, Feb. 8. The police have serv
ed an order of arrest on Mme. Patti, in
behalf of St. Petersburg authorities, for
a breach of contract in refusing to sing
unless he advance money was deposited
with her bankers. The serving of the
order caused a sensational scene. Mme.
Patti was compelled to deposit the sum
of $21 00 in order to obtain her liberty.
Satisfied He Is Dead.
Pakis, Feb. 7. A brother of the late
Robert Ray Hamilton, now in this city,
has obtained evidence of a man establish
ing the identity of the body found in
Montana. He was personally acquainted
with Robert Ray Hamilton, and states
there is no doubt that the body is that of
the unfortunate gentleman.
About Banlc Checks.
The cashier of a downtown bank said
recently when the public learned which
end of the check they should sign their
names on it would be a great and glori
ous day for the employes of the banks
in New York. "When the public has
been taught this little detail," the cash
ier said, "it would be well to give the
banks a lesson in printing their checks.
The latest fashion in checks is by far the
most convenient one. All of the in
formation on the check which is of value
to the banker is placed on one end. At
the right hand npper corner is the date.
Under this is the name of the man to
whom the check is drawn. Beneath this
again is the amount of the check in fig
ures, and right below that the signature
of the man who draws it. The other end
of the check is tilled with the name of
the bank, and so on.
"The advantages of this form of check
are: First, that the date, amount, signer
and drawee can be seen at a glance;
second, if the check is bound up with
dozens of other checks and bills it is not
necessary to pull it out from the bundle
to get information about it. A cashier
can take up a package of such checks,
thumb over the ends, and set them aside
in less time than it would take to go
over two or three checks of the older
form. Nearly all of the larger banking
houses and big corporations have adopt
ed the check, and it will eventually find
its way down to the smaller concerns."
New York Sun.
Offa, a axon prince, to secure the
favor of the sovereign pontiff, engaged
to pay a yearly tribute to the treasurer
of the Vatican. In order to raise the
promised suiu Offa was forced to imposa
a tax of one penny on each householder
whose annual income was as much as
ward levied on all England tos com
monly denominated as "Peter's Pence."
