Tiik Wall Street Xetue of the
18th says: 4;It was denied Satur
day that a loan of 1,100,000 had
been called for 13' a Boston house
on the Oregon and Transconti

this is correct. The money was
not borrowed bT the Oregon and
Transcontinental Company but by
Yxllard personally. The loan

short time ago one was advertised
for sale for JL'l 10s. Again, it
came out in evidence, on a school
board summons, that a child had
been bought for a shilling: and
last week the mother of a two-
months-old infant put her baby
into a bag of rags which she was
about to sell to a rag-dealer, with
the view, apparently, of at once
getting rid of the child and o
making the bag heavier.
Of the appropriation of $100,-

June 30, $39,000,000 remained
unexpended and was reappropri

making the sum available for ex
penses of the pension bureau
about $125,000,000. Commission
er Dudley expresses the opinion
that there will be another large
surplus at the end of the present
fiscal year. In that event he will
ask to have the surplus reappro

considerably to reduce the amount
required for the fiscal year begin

Ex-Secretary Evakts tells a
delightful story at his ow n expense
about a small donkey which he
sent up to his country seat for the
use of his children. One of his
little daughters going out with her
nurse to admire the animal in its
paddock was sorely distressed
when the donke' lifted up its voice
and braved dolefully. "Poor
thing! Poor thing!" exclaimed
the sympathetic child but sud
denly brightening up she turned
to her nurse and said: "Oh! 1
am so glad. Papa will be here on
Saturday and then it won't feel so
lonesome!" The child was wiser
than she knew. That donkeys do
rcallv love company and long for
it clearly appears from the fact
that when the editor of the New
Tacoma Ledger finds an inordi
nately asinine article in a Walla
Walla paper anent the Columbia
bar, he stops his press in order to

It was Richard Gran: White
who sometime said that ho had
never met one hundred men who
could speak English correctly.
"Were that master of diction to
cross the Cascades and read the
exchanges he would greatly lessen
his list of those who can write
English correctly. There is a slip
shod style of newspaper writing in
vogue which loni of ignorance and
fostered by carelessness is fast su
perseding the use of pure English
and has a demoralizing effect upon
those who must accept it as their
only mental pabulum.
A Sax Francisco Bulletin
special, quoting from the New
York ywo?' editorial on the state
ment that the Alki California,
under the proposed purchase by a
group of prominent Democrates
of that city, will support Justice
Field for the presidency, says:
"There is not printer's ink enough
on the Pacific slope to float Stephen
J. Field, or any other California
Democrat, over the Rocky moun
tains and into the presidential
candidacy. There are too man"
Democrats on this side of the
Rockies who are more powerful
and have got a better start.''
A:ioxg other reports it is said in
San Francisco that recent large
expenditures on improvements of
the South Pacific Coast railroad
and construction of the new pile
road two miles out into the bay.
have been prompted by a new cor
poration called the San Francisco
and Colorado Railroad company
with Villard, president of the
Northern Pacific, at its bead. It
is also affirmed that he has bought
the North Pacific Coast railroad,
running from San Francisco north
along the coast to a point called
Duncan's mills, with the intention
to construct it to a junction with
his Oregon system. It is further
stated that he has bought the San
ta Maria road a short line run
ning from Port Harford to
Santa Barbara, and that he in
tends to build a connection to join
the South Pacific Coast road.
With this accomplished he would
have a continuous coast line from
Puget sound to within a short
distance of San Diego, in southern
California, a distance of about
fifteen hundred miles. Such ru
mors are whollv improbable, as m
the case of the Astoria railroad, he
is obliged to forego any additional
enterprises until at last relieved
of his present financial embarrass

FOR LIVERPOOL DIRECT,
Grave rumors are circulated in
New York respecting the success
of the Canadian Pacific. The
statement is made that the exodus
from Manitoba so far this season
has reached an alarming' propor
tion, and that emigrants from the
province exceeds the number of
immigrants into it. This appall
ing fact is not denied, even by the
railway authorities. Those who
have returned thero say that the
cold in winter is so intense that
ladies, especially, cannot leave

therefore retailers cannot sell

Slavery in Cuba is described
by Mattie Young in the Kansas
City Times. She was born in
Nashville, Tenn.j and at the age
of 3, was stolen by . Robinson's

girl of her, and took her to Cuba.
There, seven years later, she was
auctioned to a planter whose place
is eight miles out of Havana. She
goes on to say: "I was branded
A Galveston, Texas, special of
the ISth says: A reign of terror
prevails in every portion of the
county except, perhaps, Gilgore,
from which place there ts no re
port. The excitement is due to a
raid upon the whites supposed to
be contemplated by the negroes.
white farmers have their wives and
children in houses, and are hold
ing guard over them. In some
communities little sleep has been
had since Friday night. Haggard
faces, with 'looks of fear or de
termination are seen everywhere,
and betoken the excitement pro
duced by the blood curdling re
ports brought in by each. Hun
dreds of countrymen in Long
view to-day on returning to
their homes carried all the
arms and ammunition obtain
able. The whole trouble has
arisen from threats and speeches
of a few colored persons of bad
reputation, whose course is not
sanctioned and was not known by
the mass of negroes. There were
indications that as much fear has
been excited among the latter as
among the whites; however that
may be, people have been carried
to such a pitch of excitement, it is
certain that should a white person
be molested, tne moodiest trage
dies will be enacted ever known.
