reach. The attentive reader of
this mornings dispatches in the
Times "will come to a different
conclusion, and. we need hardly
say that our correspondents are
all instructed simply to state what
they believe to "be true..
Other papers hold' to conflict
ing opinions. Correspondents
are hopelessly irrecconcilable, the
World declaring Blaine reasona
bly sure of success; the Times, on
the contrary, showing by facta and
figures that he is not so strong as
yesterday, and weakening stead
ily. Nearly all correspondents
conclude to think that the A,ell
known candidates will kill eacli
The Herald's Washington- dis
patch states that leading Demo-,
cratsin Congress say there- are
matters behind, which will be
brought out on Blaine, if he
should be nominated, that will
prove fatal to him. One of these
gentlemen said that the Repub
lican party could not elect Blaine.
He spohe candidh;, and enjoys
the reputation of always acting
honorably, even, sometimes, at
the expense of political advan
tage. A San Francisco dispatch of the
14tli says that the small pox,
which a week ago seemed ding
out, has apparently taken a new
lease of fife. Qn Sunday four
cases were reported, Monday,
one Tuesday two, and Wednesday
seven, of which iive were in one
family. All exhibit a mild type of
the disease except one Qhinanien,
who died. The new cases 'are
pretty well scattered.
A prominent grain operator
gives the California surplus Avheat
for shipment this season at three
quarters of a million short tons,
exceeding by 200,000 tons' the
crop of IS 72, The yield is unu
sually heavy in all- parts of
the State, and in quality the best
ever known in the State. He
gives the price for July delivery
along side the ship at 90 cents per
bushel. He anticipates no diffi
culty in procuring labor for har
vesting, or transportation from
the interior, unless the bulk of
the crop is held until late in the
season, which would probably
over-tax thc railroad facilities:
Tonnage here and known to be i
on the way amounts to 450,000 .
tons carrying capacity, and
enough is expected between now
and .December to take all offered.
The surplus barley is estimated at
7.3,000 tons at fifty cents along
side tlie ship.
