opened in 1859 the product of the

The great cattle range of
Yyoming under the military pro

about 800 miles square. In this
area are now grazing 300,000
head of cattle, worth 27 per

to which can be added the value
of the horses and ranches of the

An exchange very truly says:
We like to hear a man refuse to
take his home paper and all the
time sponge on his neighbors for
the reading of it. We like to
hear a man complain when asked
to subscribe for his home paper,
that he takes more papers than he
reads now, and then go around and
borrow his neighbor's pr loaf
around until he gets all the news
from it. We like to see a man run
down his home paper as not worth
taking, and every now and then
beg the editor for a favor in the
editorial line. "We like to see a
mechanic or merchant refuse to
advertise in his home paper, and
then try to get a share of the trade
the newspaper brings to town. We

The empire of Germany consists
of twenty -six states, twenty-two
of which have monarchial and
three a republican form of gov
ernment, with Aisace and Loraine
as substantially an imperial terri
tory. Prusssia, however, largely
dominates in legislation, as it pos
sessesses nearly nine-tenths of the
territory. The political govern
ment is, under the constitution of
1S71, composed of the emperor,
the king of Prussia, the federal
council, and the reichstag, or im
perial legislature. The emperor
represents the entire nationality,
in that he declares war, concludes
peace, and enters into alliance and
treaties with foreign nations, with
the consent of thp council, except
in case of an attack upon the Ger
man territory. The emperor is
commander-in-chief of the army
ami navy, lie promulgates the
laws and superintends their execu
tion, lie convokes, adjourns and
closes council, save that he must
convoke it at the request of two-
thirds of ith members. This coun
cil consists of fiftj'-eight members
of which Prussia has seventeen.
The emperor appoints the commit
tees for the army and navy. The
reichstag is elected 1)3 suffrage
and by ballot, at the average rate
of one deputy fcr each one hun
dred thousand inhabitants. It;
consisted in 1873 of three hundred
and eighty-two membeis, of which j
Prusssia was entitled two hundred!
and thirty -six.
We see, so far, the dominating
influence of Prussia in the empire,
in that her king is emperor, with
certain imperial . powers; in her
large proportion in the federal
council; in the large majority in
the federal legislature. But by the
constitution, in order to the enact
ment of an imperial law, a ma
jority of the council and reichstag
is necessaiy and sufficient. Prus
sia, therefore, if united, is the ab
solute legislator for the empire.
The requirement that even, Ger
man shall, in one phase or another,
serve twelve 3'ears in the arm',
and the control of the arm' by the
emperor, evidence the authority
and power of the imperial head.
But, says the emperor, the func
tional, the civil functionaries of
the government must obey the or
ders of the emperor political!', as
the soldier does militarily. That
Germany is convulsed in regard to
religious laws, to financial policy
and the construction ol the consti
tution, is a matter of history; that
the- last utterance of King "Wil
liam is retrogressive and aggres
sive, while the people are looking
for larger liberty and more favor
able laws for the citizen, is patent;
that the question will not be solved
at once, is certain. Both upon the
broad ground of wishing well to
liberalism and because we have and
are to have so many thousands of
German immigrants, the contro
versy will be interesting.
Status of an Uncrowned Czar.
The ceremony of the coronation
of the czar of Russia may in some
respects be rightly called the
great ceremony of the world. It
is impossible lo conceive of an'
thing that suipasses it in grandeur,
splendor and riches. Nor is its
political importance to be over
looked. The Czar is utterly
powerless as a monarch previous to
being crowned; he cannot proclaim
war or sign a treat3' of peace, nor
can he confer decorations ot a
higher order than the Vladimar,
nor can he enter the throne room.
He is not styled by his sixteen
titles, but is .simply addressed as
Alexander, son of Alexander, and,
1)3 courtes3' only, emperor of all
the Russians. A113' document he
might put his seal to would be
disregarded if not countersigned
b3 two of the ministers of state.
He is in every respect considered
a minor or heir presumptive to the
empire in which he has no author
it, and which i governed by a
regency of Ministers and heredi
tary noblemen. It can, therefore,
be easily understood that the
czars have always hastened their
coronation, not wishing to be
under tutelage, and in the majorit3'
of cases the coronation has oc
curred within two months of the
death of the czar's predecessor.
"Where there has been a dispute
about the throne, or even where
the throne has been usurped, as in
the case of Catherine the Great,
the coronation has taken place
immediately. Catherine left St.
Petersburg secretly on the ver3
day of the death of Peter, and
hastened to Moscow, where she
was crowned within a week. The
Russians do not believe the czar
to be "the most powerful by the
grace of God" until he has been
anointed at Moscow. Peter III
was buried in the common burial
ground of the little church of St.
Athauasius, instead of being laid
among the czars inside the church
of St. Peter and St. Paul, in the
St. Petersburg citadel, because,
although he was emperor, he had
not been crowned.
An Eventful Life.
Seldom is there recorded a more
eventful life story than that of
Skarbeck de Malczewski, whose
death at the age of "100 years has
just been announced at Warsaw.
lie entered the Prussian army in
his youth and was made a prisoner
b3' the French at Jena, when he at
once changed his flag, joined
Dombrowski's corps and fought so
well at Eylau as to receive a high
decoration at the close of the bat
tle. At Ilanau he was badly
wounded . lie accompanied
Bonaparte to Klba,and came away
fr5m there with him, going to
Italy as orderly officer to King
Joachim Murat. At Gaeta the
English captured him and handed
him over lo the Austrians, from
whom he escaped in time to join
Bonaparte at "Waterloo, where he
was again seriously wounded.
Under the Czar's proclamation of
amnesty he went back to Poland,
entered the Russian army and
arose to high rank, but when the
Polish insurrection of 1830 broke
out he joined ir,fought desperately

to Siberia for life. Aflersnending
half a century in penal exile he
was pardoned, and returned to his
native city to die. London Times.
About six months ago a cavalry
soldier at the "Walla Walla garri

on its merits. The committee ap
proved the arm, and on their re
