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.

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, . , nou, 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 the saying: "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 have a million voters who cannot read their ballots. Frank James on Trial. A Kansas City special says. 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. mam Absolutely Pure. This iMiwder never varies.

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 prominent officer of the .Northern Pacific Railroad company stated that all the preferred stock of the company received in settlement of the land sales, was canceled invar iably at both the companies' of fices, and at the registry office. He said that if any contrary state ment has been made, it was from whole cloth. SYMPTOMS OF WORMS.
