caintf in over the bur this morning at
8:30 o'clock, when the tide was but two
feet six inches above low water, drawing
fourteen feet six inches of water. She
hud on board fifty-one passengers and a
very large, cargo of freight. This ia her
first trip since undergoing five weeks of
general 'repairs at the dry jdock at San
FranciecoJ'and she appears now like a
new boat. The government suivey boat,
General Wright, has been 'here' twice,
and each iime .reported only seventeen
feet of water at full tide, or nine ,feet at
low. water, and right in the teeth of this
report an ocean steamer, drawing
fourteen feet ' and' six inches of wateV,
sails in over the' bar without any tronble
whatever. " The people here think' there
is some mighty big' mistake behind these
reports ana several able men are inves

similar and' louder com plaints,' and some
definite action will-' soon be taken.-

An Alliance Man Takes Advantage , of
. tUe Absence of Governor Thayer.
Omaha,. Aug. .4. A special from . Lin
coln, Neb., says Governor Thayer of
Nebraska, is in Detroit at the .G.: A. B.
encampment, -and Lieutenant-Governor
Majors' whereabouts is not known. JHe
is not at Lincoln and is supposed to be
in Detroit, also, or out, of the state at
least. ; Under-the constitution, Presi
dent of the Senate Pointer is acting gov
ernor in that case. - Pointer, Who is a
strong alliance man, slipped , down
to Lincoln this afternoon and annouced
his intention of ascertaining whether
Majors was in the state. If he found he
was not he eaid he would assume the
dutie8of governor and run things until
Majors' turned up. ' He said he would
probably call a'- special session -'of the
legislature ; to'" pass ' the maximum
freight bill. The republican officers at
Lincoln are panic-stricken and the wires
are kept hot calling on Thayer and
Majors to return.
.. DBTHOiTjAHg.-a. The. twenty-fifth;
annual encampment of the G. A. K.,
met. in. formal eeesiou this morning. -All
that art and cultured taste could do . to
make the Mammoth building attractive'
was - exerted in the decoration which
adorned the in teripr in emblematic order.
Despite i the .immensity of the- hall, it
was crowded to the utmost. Every state
and territory in the Union was repre
sented and the roll ' showed the 'fullest
attendance of delegates in the
of the organization.
In the opening .address Commander-in-chief
Veasey, in touching on the
"negro question" as affecting-the G. NA.
R., reviewed-the difliculties which ex
isted over colored posts in the depart
ment of Ixmleiana and Mississippi ever
since they organized in 1869. lie said:
"The charge, has been from different
sources that the organizations of these
posts, are so tainted with irregularlies as
to be utterly destructive of their legal
existence.1' Out'-rules and regulations

Rochestkk, Jf. Y. Aug.- 5. The lead

and agricultural exhibitions of all kinds.
The agreement which has been signed
by 1513 principal manufacturers, includ
ing MuOormick, William Deering and
Anltman, Millar Co., read as follows:
"We hereby agree that during the sea
son of 1891 we will abstain from exhib

' iThe Topeka Capital has a contnoversy
with Senator- Peffer- on the subject of
Kansas mortgages and on the financial
condition- of Kaiisas farmers." The sena
tor has been giving a very lugubrious
account of these thingein public speeches',
and also in his paper, the Kansas farmer.
ine UapUil replies by making an . ex
amination of the old mortgages released
and the new ones recorded during the
paBt three months in' thirtv-eieht coun
ties of the Btate. The result ot ; the ex
amination' is that $784,352 of farnv mort
gage indebedness has been' paid off in
the thirty-eight counties in that inter
val, against $473,644 of such indebted
ness incurred, a net payment of $310,708,
or 40 per cent. . , :
. An examination ot mortgages on citv
and town property in the same counties
showed a dinerence of only 'SI.UOO .be
tween new debts contracted and old ones
paid,' from 'wBich' it would appear' that
the conntry mouse is doing' better than
the city 'mouse in' Kansas. These figures
are worth more than tons of speeches by
Fetter 'or Simpson or Mrs. leee, or any
body. - Unless the Cavilal't figures can
be shown to be wrong, there is nothing
more to be eaid on . the subject. The
case is closed. -'

As the department of Louisiana and Mis
sissippi never, so tar as I am informed ,
resorted to that proceednre, I have held
in dealing with those posts that they
must be regarded as having legal "dist
ance until otherwise regularly adjudi
cated.' From various sources of infor
mation accessible to me, I "believe the
large majority of both white and colorcl
comrades in the department of .Louisi
ana and Mississippi to be strong in con
viction it would be for the best interests
of all to have seperate departments' in
Louisiana, and some of the other Gulf
states, made up of such posts as may ap
ply to come into it, and having concurrent
iurisdiction with departments alreadv
established in such states." . .
Referring to Mt. McGregor cottage,
where General Grant died, Geii; Veasey
recommended the encampment to take
action to secure from the' government an
appropriation for the maintenance of the
property and its preservation in "the
same condition it was . at the. demise of
General G,-ant. In regard to the disa
bility ' pension bill passed by the last
congress," General Veasey said if it is not
the wisest, it is - certainly - the "most
liberal measure. - The coinmander-in-
chief -urged the eneampment to renew
its effort to procure an amendment to
the revised statues which would give
preference to appointments to a civil
office in case the Union veterans declara
tion that the commander-in-chief favors
the establishment of a department in
the G: A. R. for negro veterans, created
a decided sensation. ' : The ' whites of
Louisiana and Mississippi were over
joyed at bis recommendations. '
- The report of the judge-advocate the
general derives its chief interest from
his decision on the Vexed race question.
As his : conclusions differ from the 'rec
ommendations of the commander-in-chief
the. dispute is only further com
plicated. The decision is as follows :
The question proposed is whether there
can lawfully be two departments cover
ing the same territory at the same time
as for instance one department made up
of white posts and the other of black
posts, or of foreign born and another of
native born. I think the question must
be answered in the negative. The rules
.and regulations do not provide for,, nor
warrant the establishment of but one
department ' in ' our state or territory.
chieflv interesting in the statement . it
contains from Pension Commiesionpr
Kaum, that the amount of $1 IP.000,000
has been expended for 'pensions during
the fiscal year.' 1 .
The adjutant-general's report for the
period ending June 30. 1891, as far as
returns received,' show in good standing,
45 departments, with 149 posts and
398,067 'Conarades" in good standing.
