There is nothing unreasonable in
the questions suggested by a citi
zen of Astoria in another column
with respect to difficulties in city
matters. Either party should be
willing to have the subject brought
iuto court now, and fairly tested,
and openly explained. The points
iat issue must eventually be arbitra
ted, and believe that the proper
tribunal should be called upon as
speedily as possible, to 'determine
those questions. Otherwise, the
city administration must be at a
stand-still, "antfil the dead-lock is
'removed. Let us lawfully know
as soon as possible "under which
head" we -are to be governed. The
attorneys in the case are Judges
Bowlby and E. D. Shattuck for
plaintiff, and Messrs. Robb & Ful
ton for the defendant. We have
confidence in the ability of counsel
to do the subject justice, and there
are some fine points to be deter
mined. A. Spleadid Sktist.
Capt. A. H. Bogardus finished
his task of shooting 6,000 out of a
possible 6,200 glass baHls in Gil
more's garden, JN"ew York, on the
9h, 3,000 balls having been broken
on Wednesday. He began work
at 11 a. M. on the 9th, and at 8
o'clock had broken 2,700 balls, miss
ing only one ball. His arm had
become stiff by pulling the trigger,
and his hands blistered by contact
with the heated barrels of his gun.
In the twenty-eighth hundred he
missed two balls, and in the twenty-ninth
hundred he failed to shat
ter nine balls. . In the last hundred
he .scored 99, making a total of
5,087 out of a possible 6,000. He
'then shattered 13 balls, making
his score 6,000 out of a possible
6,014. One of the conditions was
that he should break 6,000 out of
6,100, and he wagered $506 to
$1,000 that he could do it. His
shooting against Abe Kleinman
resulted in a tie, their -scores being
"If ithe republican party had
a leader," said -a, very prominent
republican hi Washington the
other day in conversation, "it might
regard itself as certain of victory
in 1886. But -it should be a leader
who wotfld lea&; who would march
forward, instead of backward.
-The notion that Gen. Grant is the
best man for the party is absurd.
His nomination would signify ito
the country simply that -the party
does not mean to move forward;
that it has nothing to offer; that
in fact it is like the western quack
doctor, who was unable to cure
any disease except fits, and who,
when lie was -Galled to treat a fever
'patient, insisted on throwing him
into convulsions as the first step
toward curing him of fever. This
is so clear to me that, unless the
republican party means to c;o out
ef: business, I have no idea that
they will nominate Grant next
There is little reason for be-
lioving that Walker, the filibuster,
buried five mule-loads of treasure
at the Isle of Pines. or anywhere
else. The whole story has proba-

Judge Black of Pennsylvania tellfe a
comical stoty of a trial in rhica a
German doctor appeared for the de
fense in a case for damages brought
against a client of his by the oVject
of his assault. The eminent jurist
soon recognized in his witness, who
was produced as a medical expert, a
laboring man who some .years before,
and in another part of the country,
had been engaged by him as a builder
of pest and rail fences. With this
cue "he opened his cross-examination.
fYou say, Doctor," he began, with
great deference and suavity, "that
you operated upon Mr. 's head
after it was cut by 2Vl. 1"
"Oh, yaw," replied the ex-fence
builder, "me do dot; yaw, yaw."
"Was the wound a very severe one,
"Enough to kill him ef I not saft

Judge bent over m a friendly, familiar
way, "tell us.vhether you submitted
your patient to the process known
among medical men as post-and-rail-fenciorum?"
The mock doctor drew himself up
indignantly. "Scherry Black," says
he. "I always know'd you vas a tarn
jayhawk lawyer, an' now I know you
for a tam mean man."
The Union Pacific railroad
cost $50,000,000, which was fully
made up by the first mortgage and
government bonds. The construc
tion companies which were created
within the board of directory re-.
ceived $93,446,000, and put the!
excess in their pockets. Tom Bay-'
ard truly said that the senators
around him seemed to be indiffer
ent about this immense outrage
on the government of ten millions
of dollars, while if the president
wanted 25,000 a year salary more,
or a cabinet minister "the prrice of

for days and weeks.
An effort will be made during
the session -of the 'Indiana legisla

legislative halls. The Indiana law
