SATURDAY- APRIL 7, 18ES
Heavy Financiering .
The New York Sunday Mercu
ry of the 2d says: The news that
Endicott of Boston was about to
run an Oregon transcontinental
reached the ears of D. O. Mil's on
Thursday, and he marketed 5.000
shares while Endicott was writing
his orders. This Northern Pacific
system embraces $350,000,000 in
stocks and bonds, and could John
Law or the Duke of Orleans wake
up they would appreciate the in
significance of their financiering
compared to that of Mr. Villard.
Fifty years from now this capitali
zation may be warranted by the
increased value of their lands, but
we are told by those who know
that the sale announced of $10,
000,000 worth of land to an Eng
lish syndicate has no foundation in
fact. C. P. Huntington during
the week has sold all the Central
Pacific he could without utterly
demoralizing the -stock. The
Southern Pacific will soon
be a powerful rival of this
road, and the owners are selling
out and investing in Southern Pa
cific. There is quite a scare
among the holders of Central Pa
cific stock, as in case the Govern
ment should compel the payment
of the security, each holder ol 100
shares of stock will be liable to an
assessment of $25 a share, as only
?5 per cent, has been paid in, and
"will also be personally liable to
the par value of the stock. The
consequence is that a large number,
of certificates have, during the last
fortnight been transferred to straw
names. Union Pacific was also
sickly during the week, owing to
a prospect of a cut in tariff rates
by the Denver road, which will
soon be completed to Ogden, and
with it the Baltimore and Ohio
will thus cut off a large portion of
the Union Pacific traffic.
AWashington special says that
the Nicaragua canal company,
tired of waiting for action by con
gress, and alarmed by the activity
manifested by the Panama compa
ny, is taking active steps for be
ginning work on the proposed
canal. The financial managers
have been working quietly in
New York and other money cen
ters, and have made sucli favora
ble progress that they will be able
to begin operations in Nicaragua
as soon as the season is over.
Menocal, the engineer who sur
veyed the routes for both canals,
and who represented the American
government at the canal confer
ence at Paris is now at the Wash
ington navy yard. His views on
the subject have not changed, and
he is earnestly favoring the Nic
aragua route, so much so that he
is an active member of the com
pany which is preparing to under
take the work, and is to take per
sonal supervision of operations
there, when begun. He confirms
the report that the managers of
the company are determined to go
on; $45,000,000 is his estimate of
The New Orleans Picayune de-
fines a complimentary vote as
something that is thrown at a man
to make him feel bad because he
is not quite popular enough to be
Of the 140 members retired
from the last congress, 100 are ap
plicants for a Federal appointment.
One of the '-lame-duck" members,
in eloquently pleading for a place,
said: "I must have a place; I
cannot earn my living without
There is great competition for
the location of the new capital
city for Dakota, and the talk is
that the commissioners will come
out of the contest with money
enough to enable them to retire
from political life and calmly "face
the storm of mankind."
A dispatch from Moscow states
that a large mine has been dis
covered, connecting with the
Kremlin, where the coronation of
the czar is t o take place. The
telegrams also state that a request
has been wired to St. Petersburg
for 100 men to be sent at once to
Moscow for the purpose of de
stroying the mine.
England is excited over the ar
rest at London and Birmingham
last Thursday, of men who had in
their possession enough dynamite
and other explosives to blow the
kingdom to atoms, and who evi
dently intended to use it if they
got a chance,
A Chicago journal' says that a
printer has been cured by piayer,
which leads a Texas paper to sa3r
"if he was cured of extracting the
word in a paragraph on which a
joke hinges and substituting a word
of his own 'to make sense,' as he
puts it, we will indorse the prayer
cure and give it a five-inch electro
ad. free, one year5 top column, j
next to reading matter."
Chief-Justice Carter, of the
supreme court of the District of
Columbia, the other day inter
rupted a lawyer who was saying
thatctbe making of his will is one
of the most noble acts of a man's
life." Mr. .Carter spoke up in
dissent, urging that will-making is
a disagreeable job to most men- lie
concluded in this way: '-If a man
could take his possessions with him, j
all the property of the earth
would now be either in heaven or
As evidence of what a .deter
mined woman can do, it is related
that the daughter of a once wealthv
Bostonian being reduced to the
necessity of providing for herself,
conceived the idea of putting up
pickles and preserves for the
market. She made her intention
known to intimate friends, and
they promised to become her cus
tomers. There was no difficulty
in selling all that she could pre
pare with her own hands. The
business increased, and grew to
magnificent proportions with the
third year. Now she is reaping a
net profit of $10, 000 a year.
Consul Francis, of Victoria, B.
C, reports to the state department
that the twenty salmon canneries
of that province aggregated, for
the season of 1SS2, 235,000 cases,
valued at $1,175,000. Over 9000
cases were sent to Canada and
Australia, via San Francisco.
Francis says the salmon business
on the coast of British Columbia
and Alaska territory can be prose
cuted with profit to almost an un
limited extent. It is established
beyond a doubt that the coast of
Alaska, should canned or packed
salmon meet in the future a con
siderable demand in the states,
could supply the same from this
one of its inexhaustible resources
