Disposal or the Public Lauds.
A statement of the disposal of
the .public lands during the fiscal
year ended .Tunc 30, 18S2, shows
that the total number of acres dis
posed of was 13.C0n,S18, an in
crease over last year of about
5,000,000 acre?. The cash teceived
fortius land ampunts in the aggre
gate to about 8,301,091, against
about 5,000,000 during the last
fisral jear. . The number of acres
entered for -agjicuHural purposes
as "cash sales" during iheyear -was
3,C99,S99; for mineral purposes
37,068,010; for desert lands, 1GG,
055; for coal lands", 7,191; enter
ed under the .homestead laws, G,
347,729 acres, and 2,21G,24A acres
were proved up under the same
lajrs. Under the timber culture
acts 2,G09,?97 acies -were entered
and "proved tip." Under the va
rious land warrants, railroad grants,
school and state selection acts (in
cluding various kinds of scrip)
G15,SGG acres were disposed of.
The great incicase in the disposi
tion of public lands during the
past fiscal year is said to be owing
to the immense immigration in the
Minnesota is perturbed over
the discovery of a swindle, which
has been profitable to the perpe
trator. Circulars, says the New
York Sun, were sent throughout
England saying that the care of
young men desirous ol learning
farming iw the "C4olden Northwest"'
was desired byjthe one advertising.
The trouble of the instructor would
be recompensed, and the expenses
of the 'trip would be repaid to the
teacher who advanced the money
by a deposit of 375. Of this
amount 580 was to go to the far
mer who received the young man
as an apprentice for one ear.
Each apprentice was to receive SG
per month for four months, and
$12 for each succeeding month,
besides board. 1'ecently the
author ol the circular brought a
party of seventy-five English
young men, and distributed them
along one of the Minnesota rail
roads. It turns out that some of
the Englishmen were not placed
on farms at all. Others received
no stipend for their work. Sev
eral thousand dollars rewarded
this confidence man. Some of the
young men represent excellent
The San Francisco Commercial
Herald thinks that the lime lias
,now come when the fishermen of
the Columbia liver will have to
give serious attention to the re
stocking of the river. "Like prodi
gals, they have been depleting
their sources of supply, with no
thought of the future. It is idle
to look for government or state
legislatien: The cure is with them
selves. By a concerted action
among them, and by their laying
aside a cent, or two cents a case
on their total pack, they would be
able to maintain two fishing farms,
one at Astoria and one on the up
per portion of the river, say near
William Ilume's Eagle Cliff can
nery, where they would be able to
stock the river with millions ol
young fish every season. It only
needs a concert of action to put
this into operation, and without
waiting for legislative aid, we trust
to see the canners on the Colum
bia river combine themselves and
do something toward the rectifica
tion of the abuses that hae been
so long practiced."
It ife interesting, says an ex
change, to compare the public ex
penditures of this country with
those of the lending nations of
Erirope. The appropriations made
by the present congress for the
coming year amount to 294,513,
G39. The expenditure of the
fprominent nations of Europe in
'fiscal years, of which statistics are
available, were as follews: Eng
' land, 415,509,620; Russia, $4G9,
121,7994; Austria, 44738,322;
France, $547r2Jl,735; Germany,
S3i4,aU:75; Italy, S3l'dl0.o00.
The large standing armies and
navies, the enormous burdens of
royalty, the expenses of wars and
other extraordinary outgoes that!
these countries have, are unknown j
here, and yet our expenditures are
so rapidly increasing that they
already' compete with them, with-1
out the tithe of the reason thatj
exists in their cases.
The political light in California
this ear. presents two interesting
phases: opposition to law and to
fact: the Democratic platform op
poses the Sunday law as it standi,
which gives a strength to the IJ--
publican party which it would not
otherwise posess: the -.loriit:i I
of the railroad company constitutor
a fact that both parties oppose
witii intent to create a change.
The Republican platform avows
determined opposition to the C. F.
and S. P's. extortion, and if the
organs of that party can get the
people to believe they are sii.e ic
