Archibald Forbes, celebrated as
a war correspondent, is an invalid
in San Francisco.

a row with Conkling in caucus, or
declared he would not vote for

It is understood that Lamar
favored confirmation of Stanley
Matthews. The rest of the com
mittee opposed it. Conlding asd
Garland were absent.
It is now stated that there is no
chance of an arrangement be
tween rival Atlantic cable com
panies, and the prospect is that
there will be competition at a
shilling per word tariff.
A bill abolishing the tax nn
shipping has passed the Massa
chusetts house by a good majority,
and was expected to receive sim
ilar treatment in the senate.
Rhode Island and New York have
taken the initial steps looking to
the same reform, and it would be
a wise move on the part o the
legislature of this state to follow
the example. The national con
vention of ship owners and build
ers recently held in Boston, the
board of trade, the New England
ship owners association, have all
passed resolutions urging that this
taxation be removed. There can
be no doubt that the local tax upon
shipping is a serious impediment
in the way of a revival of our
shipping interest The Massachu
setts representatives in congress
have expressed the opinion that
the proposed action on the part of
that state will have favorable ef
fect in securing from congress de
The French embassador at Con
stantinople handed the porte a
letter Saturday saying that the
dispatch of any armed force to

Senator Fryc says that he does
not consider it worth while to
answer any speeches of democrats
in reply to his. The administra
tion had nothing to do with that
speech. He alone was responsible
for its sentiments.

A contract has been entered
into between the Chinese govern
ment and a telegraph company, of
Copenhagen, for the establishment
of a line between Shanghai, and
the harbor of Peking. The line
will extend over 100 English miles.
Work on 100 stock cars has
been commenced in the Oregon
Railway and Navigation compnnys
shops at the Dalles. This, looks as
if the company were going into
the transportation cf live stock; a
branch of transportation which
will soon grow to large proportions,
and be a big thing for the railroad
company as well as for Mock men.
Some of the New York dKilies
are predicting trouble to arise from
the great increase in rents which
landlords combine to exact. In
s-omc cases rents have advanced
from fifty to one hundred per
cent. There is no corresponding
rise in the value of real estate or
in the value of the property runt
ed for business purposes. The
movement among real estate own
ers and agents is not a new one.
They alwa's resort to the same
thing in seasons of prosperity.
lhe success of the street car
drivers and conductors of Chicago
has induced the same class of em
ployes in several other cities to
imitate their example those of
New York among the number.
As there is a reliable knowledge
that these men are over worked
everywhere, they have the sympa
thy of the press and peopie so
long as they remain orderly, but
lose it by riotous proceedings.
The New York Tribune intimates
a friendliness to the strikers when
it says, satirically: "There has
been an impression that car
drivers as a class are slightly over
worked, but it must have been
erroneous. The statement of one
of the strikers shows that the
Third Avenue men drive only
seventy-five miles a day, and have
no less than fifteen minutes for
dinner at that."
There aie four men in jail in
Jfhiladelplua for illegal voting. At
the February municipal election,
the citizens committee warned re
peaters that measures vrould be
taken to protect the polls from
fraud, but this warning did not de
ter old hands from nlyinjr their
trade. FourJiave been convicted
and a score are under indictment
with prospects of a term in prison
One of the convicted four moved
for a new trial, and petitioned to
be released on bail. The district
attorney resisted the application
which somewhat discouraged the
other three, who would doubtless
have followed a like course if it
had proved successful. It is cer
tamly a hopeful sign when public
opinion and the city authorities
join their influence to punish
frauds at the ballot box. Proba
bly no American city is more in
need of such a reform than Philadelphia.
The following description of the
Wood river country, Idaho, is
from a letter to the Reno Gazette:
This is the country the Bannock
Indians fought for several years
ago, claiming it as a hunting
ground. Tt is full of game of all
kinds elk, deer, antelope, bear
and the lesser spoils of the hunt,
grouse and prairie chickens; while
beaver, otter and mink abound.
The smaller streams are filled with
mountain trout, while the river has
a seemingly inexhaustible stock of
the larger trout. Warm springs
arc found every few miles. Ow-
inir to the elevation (5500 feet)
agriculture may not prove prac
ticable, but the numerous valleys
of the mountains and Camas prair
ies to the southwest furnish the
finest grazing country in the world

and innumerable streams in every
