A WHITE STAR LINE STEAM
SHIP GIVEN UP TORiOST.
A Montreal dispatch says: In
terest has been revived here in the
case of the missing "White Star
Line steamship JLudicig by the ar
rival of her sister ship, the Helve
tia of the same line at that port.
Captain Smith, commander of the
Hlvetia reports that nothing
had been seen or heard of the
Lxidxoig, though following her
track, as the Helvetia has done,
they were on the lookout for her.
The Helvetia had a very danger
ous passage. On the morning of
the 15th inst, when between 150
and 200 miles from the straits of
Belle Isle they were surrounded
by icebergs. The captain states
that was the first time in his
knowledge that icebergs had
been seen or met so far from shore,
and that they were, he thought,
duo from westerly winds. The
Helvetia made the passage in
fifteen days, whereas the jfcudwig,
which sailed from Antwerp
on the 22d of last month, has now
been out over thirty-one days.
Her passengers, twenty-six in
number, were, with one exception,
farmers and laborers with their
families. The exception is ;i bril
liant young violinist, Emile Hone,
a native of Montreal and a music
ian, whose future "was considered
very promising. An experienced
ship-agent stated to day that the
fate of the JOudicig was absolutely
hopeless, and has been so for two
weeks. He said: "There is no
conceivable theory which could
account for her long absence
without having been once seen or
keard of. No vessel Tcould either
be on the north or south track for
such a length of time, nor have
run to any conceivable point from
either bank, without being sighted.
She is, beyond all doubt, lost."
The vessel was a favorite one with
cattlo shippers, having two flush
decks, full length, and being thor
oughly ventilated. Her crew
numbered thirty men, and she was
under command of Captain Kiel,
an expenenced navigator, -who
had been many years in the North
Atlantic trade. The Xudioig was
originally built for the North
American Lloyds, but she was
i i ii, t
suDsequenuy soia to people in
England. She was a strongly
built vessel, and made about thir
teen knots an hour in good weath
er. Her dimensions were, length
340 feet, breadth of beam 42 feet.
vriath 66 leet. bhe was built at
Laird's yard on the Clyde.
If we understand the decision
rendered by the United States
district court of Massachusetts, in
the recent Chinese case, it abro
gates the law restricting Chinese
immigration from the portof Hong
kong, because it is under English,
and not Chinese, jurisdiction. In
a word, all Umna may come to
America if it will pass through an
English port of shipment. The
statement that only those can come
who, being born since the British
occupancy, are British subjects, is
& quibble. If this is a proper in
terpretation of the law, then the
law will be reenacted by congress.
If it is necessary to obtain the ac
quiescence of England, that con
sent will be obtained. If it is
withheld, it is a just cause of war.
Chinese immigration will not be
allowed upon this side of the con
tinent. "We shall be sorry if New
England judges and Boston senti
malists do not see this thing as
we see it; but all the same we Cal
ifornians will not permit the coun
try to bo overrun by an invasion
of Chinese if we can help it, and
we think we can. Argonaut.

Effect of the Northern Pacific
The N. Y. Pout says: Several
important facts, as well as rumors
of others that may be more defi
nite soon, must have an effect not
only upon the stocks to which
they refer but to the whole mar
ket. The first of these is the an
nouncement of the completion of
the Northern Pacific railroad.
A train of cars loaded with Or
egon wheat will at once leave the
Pacific end of the line for the At
lantic states. The final comple
tion of this great enterprise, is of
itself a fact of irreat importance,
but the movement of grain from
Oregon to the Atlantic by the
Northern Pacific, and from south
ern California to New Orleans, in
dicates an era not only in railroad
business, but in shipping interests.
There are also and have been for
some time, rumors of an alliance
of some sort between the Vander-
bilt and Gould interests in the
southwest. "Whatever foundation
there may be for these, it is plain
that it would be for the general
profit of all concerned. Some re
cent rumors in rejrard to the Den
ver aud Rio Grande probably
originated m the ditliculty lue
Denver and liio Grande Western
railroad company finds in raising
funds to pay its September semi
annual interest on its $0,157,000
first mortgage bonds. The Den
ver and Piio Grande Western is
leased to the Denver and Rio
Grande at a rental of forty per j
cent, of its gross receipts, but if j
that is insufficient to pay the in-
terest on its bonds, the Denver:
and Rio Grande guarantees the
deficiency. It is alleged the Den
ver and Rio Grande "Western has
made a demand to have this defi
ciency, whatever it may be, made
up, so as to pay the September in
terest. It seems not improbable
that these featurss may lead to the
transfer of the control of the Den
ver to either the Burlington and
Quincy or the Union Pacific.
General Sheridan's Idea of Texas.
On our trip the talk turned on
Texas, and Sheridan was asked
the origin of the saying attributed
to him: "If I owned hell and
Texas I'd rent Texas out and live
in hell." "It's true," he said,
laughing heartily, "and I'll tell
you how I came to say it. I was
in Texas when the civil war was
raging between the Mexicans un
der Juarez and the French under
Maximilian. 1 went down on the
Rio Grande with an understanding ;
with the American authorities to
scare the French. I was there en- ,
gaged in strategic movements in- '
tended to frighten the French for i
some days. Then we rode to
Galveston. Arriving there,
dusty and dirt, after a long day's
j , I-, i fl
nde, having had no change off
clothes for a week, I was disgusted j
with everything in the world. I
stepped up the hotel register,;
wrote my name, and just then a
man spoke up to me and said:
"General, how do you like Texas?"
and in the intensity of disgust I
gave him for an answer what you
have quoted. Next morning it
was in the Galveston paper, the
shortest interview vou ever read.
The man I had talked to so frank
ly was a newspaper reporter."
"But there was ono fellow,"
continued Sheridan, "who got
even with me for it. He was the
editor of a hard little country pa
per in a border county. He copied
"If I owned hell and Texas I
would rent Texas out and live in
hell." Phil. Sheridan.
"And added for comment:
"Well, a man, anyhow, who
won't stick up for his own coun
try!' He did not neglect to send
me a copy of his paper."
The question of transferring the
Indian Bureau to the "War De
partment will be brought up be
fore congress next winter, and ad
vocates of the change express
themselves confident of success.
A Chautauqua lecturer says we

Frank James on Trial.
A Kansas City
The interest in
the Frank James
trial, which had lessened slightly
during yesterdayJs adjournment,
was fully revived to-day. The
time for convening court had been
appointed at 1:30 o'clock, but the
attorneys at that time had not
completed the work of preparing
the jury challenges.
The court reassembled at 4
o'clock and the Sheriff called the
twelve jurymen as selected to try
Frank James on a charge of train
robbery nt Winston and for tho
murder of Conductor Westfall.
Following this the witnesses were
called, There were eighty-nine
for the state and thirty nine
for the defense. Of the state's
witnesses fifty responded and
were sworn. Among the absent
were Mrs. Sam Hite, Mrs. Bolton,
Dick Liddel, James Cummings
aud the Fords. The prosecution
is positive, however, that they
will appear when wanted. About
one-third of the defendant's wit
nesses answered and were sworn.
The judge charged the jury and
the witnesses and the court ad
journed until to-morrow.
Among the prominent witnesses
for the defense arc members of
the Samuels family, Frank Lut
trell and General J. O. Shelby.;
Of the jury, it can be said that,
they are comparatively young
men, the oldest being 45. They
are thrifty farmers, rated as good
citizens and politically are all said
to be Democrats. One of them
served in the Union army and the
other on the Confederate side.
The general impression is that the
defense have won half the fight in
getting the jury. The prosecu
tion, however, express itself as
confident. Many anticipate a
disagreement of the jury.

Henr Villard, President of the
Oregon and Transcontinental
company, denies in the most em
phatic aud positive terms the nu
merous rumors recently circulated
in "Wall street, in regard to a fresh
issue of stock on bonds by the
company. "All these reports are
absolutely false," he said "The
company does not contemplate
anv such action, either in resneet
to its stocks or bonds. There is j
no iounuaiion ior any 01 me ru
mors about the company, which
have been set afloat lately.7' A
