.Some men of Yankee fork, believ
ing that there were rich deposits
of gold and silver on the head wa
ters of Salmon river, and having a
"full share of the adventurous and
never satisfied spirit common to
miners, started out to explore the
latter section about two year ago.
They were reasonably successful.
Jcads of silver ore which they
.found are now worked, producing
ore assaying from 300 to 3000
ounces per ton. A few of the
onore restless ones of the part'
-were soon on the road to a coun
try still more unknown to them.
J n two days they had made the
summit of the Sawtooth mountains
and camped on the Wood river
side of the divide where Galena
city now stands. They had not
been prospecting a day before
-they brought in a large lump of
Galena ore, causing great excite
ment in the party. They 'made
nine locations and all started back
to Yankee fork. There they had
their various samples of ore assa

hundreds of ounces in silver,
with sixty to seventy per qent.

abroad and caused great excite
ment. Everyone who could scare
up a cay use started immediately
to find a fortune. Spring found
them all buck again. They had to
return on account of the deep
snow. By spring the news had
spread to Utah, Nevada and "Wash
ington and numbers ilocked to the
new Nevada. Goods were hauled
from Salt Lake and Boise. Men
were not to be had to work at any
price. All who were able were
out prospecting. Many claims

Harper's Weekly generally has
something good on the back page,
and the number for April 2d, is no
exception. The Survival of the
Pig-ist is a good burlesque on the
ridiculous scare of the European
nation on the pork question. If
those nations had nothing more
serious to trouble, them than our
corn-fed hogs, they would have
little cause to worry. But whether
we can stand the importation of

he solved by time. The survival
of the fittestjis a saying that applies
to nations as well as animals and
individuals. At one time, in the
history of our planet, the Assyrian
empire was the fittest, then the
-Egyptian, the Grecian, the Roman,
and in later time, the British. The
fittest of all the nations that have
flourished since the beginuiiiff of
history, is our own great Republic.
Without an equal, without a rival;
with scarcely danger enough from
without to make us careful and
keep within the bounds of reason.
Like a lusty overgrown youth, we
do not know our own strength;
hut how much of this foreijrn im
portation we can stand? is a prob
lem yet to be solved. While we
are the fittest, we will survive

Tlie members of the Unity club
and their invited guests met last
evening at the residence of Mrs.
Kate Bruce, 1333 L street north

received the club. "Her parlors
were very bright and charmingly
arrayed. The following program
was excellently rendered: Piano

nor, in which the essayist began
with a pleasing reference to Count
Oxenstiern, a Swedish statesman
of the seventeenth century, and
his words to his son, 'My son, you
do not yet know, with Itow little
wisdom men are governed," which
was satirically changed to "my son,
come up to London aud sec by
what fools England is governed."
From these expressions the essay
ist gave, a very able and interest
ing essay on the art of traveling
as an educator. This was follow
ed by a song from Mr. Whipple"!
(Mr. .lacco, pianist), reading by
Mrs. Bruce; song by Miss Eva
Mills, with encore, and a beauti

poem by Dr. C. Warren; recitation
by Miss Screiner; song by Mr.
Whipple and recitation by Dr.

In his fly across the continent he
paid Tiik Astokiax a visit.
Senator Fair of Nevada is said
to be the wealthiest member of
that body. He cannot tell how
rich he is, but is estimated to be
worth as much as all the rest.
David Davis, of Illinois, is ranked
next to Fair. Eugene Hale, whose
wile inherited Zach Chandler's for
tune, probably conies after Davis.
Senators Miller, of California; Ma-
hone, of Virginia; Plumb, of
Kansas, and Jones, of Nevada, are
regarded as millionaires. The fol

than $500,000; Hill, of Colorado;
Brown, of Georgia; Gorman, of
Maryland; McPherson, of New
Jersey; and Pendleton, of Ohio.
Among those who possess at least
$100,000 apiece are Merrill, of Ver

Conkling, of New York; Rollins,
of New Hampshire; Saunders, of
Nebraska; Ferry, of Michigan;
Kellogg, of Louisiana; Allison, of
Iowa; Harrison, of Indiana, aud
