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 .nickel ledges. ."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. A Boston dispatch savs the collector - of that port has received a sweeping or der from the treasury department at Washington, concerning the importation of rags. The order absolutely prohibits the importation of rags from Paris, 'Rouen, Havre, Marseilles, Cherbourg, 'Dunkirk and Lorient, in France;, all ports and places in Russia, Netherlands, Belgium, Austro-H ungary (except Trieste), Hamburg, Altoua and Kiewo, in Germany. All other places where cholera is known to be prevailing or may .hereafter prevail will lie included in the list. IN THE PRICE OF Gook Stoves and flanges.

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.
