A peculiar political incident has just
been reported from Illinois. It was one
of the funniest complications that the
poatomce department has ever exper
ienced. The town had a German demo
crat as postmaster under Mr. Cleveland.
AVhen Harrison was elected he was suc
ceeded by a republican postmaster, who
died, and the office was then turned
over to the widow. When Cleveland
was elected last fall the Herman demo
crat thought that he also had len re
elected postmaster. He appeared at the
postoflii-e with a wajruu and persuaded
the postmistress to allow him to remove
the effects of the oilice to his place. He
lias since het'n running affairs, fully con
vinced that Cleveland's re-election re
stored him as postmaster. Representa
tive Hopkins reported the fact to the
postoffice department and an inspector
was detailed to restore the postmistress
to her rights.
The latest respecting the Panama
canal scandal in Paris is to the effect
that the book containing copies of the
correspondence with Herz and Anton
relating to votes in the senate and
chamber of deputies in behalf of the
Panama canal scheme, found in the
office of the Panama canal company, is
said to compromise a lare number of
senators and deputies. There are let
ters demanding money, together with
the rates on which the payment was
made. It will be the" basis of additional
prosecution. It establishes the fact of
a blackmailer and jro-letween in the
corruption of the legislators.
The use of nickel in armor-plates, and
the probable increased demand, has
stimulated the search for the metal
longjknown to exist in the Black Hills,
iand a South Dakota dispatch says Wood
Thurlow, of Loudon, while in Kapid
"City a lew weeks since, invested in
numerous claims in Burnt ranch dis
trict, near there, and his property is
now under development. Very rich
ppecimens from large deposits near Har
ney were brought in yesterday. The
assays show a large per cent, of nickel
and from f5 to $10 gold per ton. Numer
ous claims have been staked along the
."Report comes from Washington to the
'effect that a number of ranchmen and
- other residents of Mexico' on the Rio
Grande border will fils claims for dam
ages through the depredations of bandits
and the so called revolutionists from
Texas. These bandits, while claiming
to be of a political character, are noth
ing less than freebooters. They intimi
date settlers, take horses, cattle or what
ever they see lit to appropriate. These
claims, it is understood, will be formally
presented to the United States govern
ment for indemnity on the ground that
the United States is responsible for not
suppressing the outlawry which origi--.nated
in its territory.

Washington, concerning the importation
of rags. The order absolutely prohibits

A queer story is told by the Cincinnati
Times-Star as the failure of a Clermont
county merchant a few weeks ago,
'While in that city he was attracted by
' the watches displayed, in a pawn shop
window, and steeped inside to examine
'them. Two or three persons from hia
Tillage happened to pass and saw him.
' They went home and gossiped about the
'matter. A report was spread that he
' was hard up, and had been pawning his
" watch in Cincinnati. The report injured
bis business, and his creditors also be
gan to press him. In a short time he
was compelled to make an assignment,
The Hillsboro Independent has
- strong article criticizing some of the
proposed amendments to the tax laws of
- the state advocated by the Portland
. chamber of commerce. That body seems
. to have two ideas which it calls reforms
one to repeal the mortgage tax law, the
other to exempt notes and accounts from
assessment. The correspondence re'
ferred to discusses those points.
Miners in Tennessee again threaten to
release the convicts at the Coal creek
mines. . No one can tell just what tjbey
will do. There are about 163 men at
Coal creek, and 1 they are under strictly
military discipline. . The. miners swear
that the convicts shall be released before
Gov. Buchanan's term expires. Whether
they will attempt tg carry their threat
into execution remains to be seen.
