Kimball said that it would be a
short route from "Washington terri
tory and Oregon to Chicago as the
proposed route of the Northern
Pacific through Montana. It will
afford a cut-off from the point of
intersection with the Utah North

effect a saving in hauling of Mon

By this cut-off the heavy grades in
Echo and Weber canyons on the

Concerning the world's fair, tiie
5Tew Ywrk CkMnmMcial says: The
present positioti (f the worhl's fair
does not appear encouraging. A
reiorter railed to-dy on Waiter i
Holt, commissioner for California,
and from him learned that one of
tlie causes of tlc present apathy is
lack of activity on tlie part of tlie
executive committee. He said
very emphatically tliat tle execu
tive committee of which he is not
a member has leen assured of sub
scriptions to the amount of over
a million and have good promises
for $100,000 more. t should go
to work and show some energy.
He said that California was ready
to appropriate a large sum if the
legislature could only see that
anvthing was being done to for
ward the enterprise, nis col
league Lever recently wrote hirn
from San Francisco that nothing
can be done until preliminaries are
completed in New York. The
Commercial adds: As California or
rather San Francisco is to have a
very important celebration in 18S3,
where a very large proportion of
American citizens are expected to
assemble, this expression of the
San Francisco commissioner has
weight that should not be lightly
overlooked in the present condition
ing information as to laws, cus
toms, languages, religion, etc., the
vcr3r memory of which, he tlrnks,
will die out with the present gen
eration of Indians.
Statistics sliow that "ice lS3-i
there has been an increase of nsk
from lightning in various par's of
Germany, Austria and Switzer
land, while there is no corresjKmd-
ing increase in the number of
thtuider-stornife. If err Holtz, who
has been invefciigaling this matter,
inclines to the lieUcf tJat the caus
es of the greater liability of (larger
from lightning arc t be sought in
the changes produced of late by
man on the surface of the earth;
such as the clearing of forests, tlie
increase of railroads and the great
use made of irosi in tlie construc
tion of houses.
A report by Dr. IT. Trimen, of
Ceylon, on India rubber, statos
that the plant which produces the
Ceara rubber is very hardy ad
will grow in adr rough soil and
in a moderately dry, liot atmos
phere, while the Para and west
India rubber plants require a rich
alluvial soil and a constantly hot,
moist atmosphere. The tree grows
to a height of about thirty feet
and has a dense rounded crown.
In two years it attains a diameter
of four or five inches, when it
may be tapped. The cultivation
of this tree will reduce the price
of rubber to a reasonable rate.
A Colony of Jews in Palestine.
Eighty thousand acres of land
have been secured by the Turkish
government in Palestine, between
Jerusalem and Jappa, for a colony
of Jews. It is proposed to open
up a settlement for the persecuted
Israelites in Europe, and efforts
arc making in England and in this
country to raise funds for the pro
ject. This is not the scheme of
Lawrence Oliphant, the wealthy
Englishman, who once endeavored
to found an American Utopia on
the banks of- lake Eric, where
everybody was to cultivate his own
vine the grape-vine and dwell
in simple but speculative innocence.
