Northern Pacific Matters.
A N. Y. dispatch of the 24th
says: In response to a dispatch
of inquiry from Anthony J.
ThomaSj vice-president of the
Northern Pacific road, to Fred
erick Billings at Woodstock, Ver
mont, Billings replied to-day:
I have just received your tele
tgrara of yesterday giving the sub
stance of an article in a New York
paper, which is utterly without
foundation. 1 had no communica
tion, either verbal or written, with
Mr. Gould about Northern Pacific
stocks. I have not said they were
selling too high, and 1 have not
sold a share of my large holdings.
A person said to me that Gould
was willing to go into a pool to
buy Northern Pacifies. I replied
that it was not in mv line to sro
into Wall street pools, and I did
not trust them". I was very busy
at the time, and turned off the
person quite abruptly. My faith
in Northern Pacific is stronger
than ever. The floating debt
when added to the bonded debt
will not make the totnl debt more
than 31,000 or 32,000 per mile,
and that for a road laid with steel
rails, magnificently equipped and
having great land grants will be a
The followiug oflicial statement
been issued by the Northern
Pacific railroad and branches is as
follows: Main lines including the
line from St. Paul to Sauk rapids,
1954- miles; branch lines, -JUG
miles. Total bonded indebted
ness, main line 39,522,200; add
to bonded indebtedness outstand
ing dividends and scrip, 4,04.0,
S21; add excess of expenditures
over proceeds of bonds (for which
funding arrangements have been
made), 8,000,000; total, $52,1G3,

branch lines, 4.4G miles, at 20,
000 .per mile, 8,920,000, upon
which interest does not accrue for
eighteen months or two 3'cars; the
estimated earnings of the twelve
months from September, 1883, are
$15,000,000; the expenses, includ
ing rentals and taxes, will be GO
per cent $9,000,000; remainder,
0,000,000. The interest on fixed
charges, as above, viz., G per cent
on $52,103,021, is 3,129,781; sur
plus, 2,870,219. The interest on
34,522,200 on bonds was provid
ed for two years in the proceeds
of the sale of the bonds.
The week opens with removed
depression in Villard shares, and
lower prices all round. Oregon

The New York Shipjing lAst
thinks that the time when state
laws should be applied to the
general business of the country
has passed. The railroad, the
telegraph and the modern methods
of trade have long since outgrown
the boundaries of states. Conse
quently, when each state under
takes to legislate regarding com
mercial matters which affects the
whole country, trade is not only
hampered, but great injustice is
certain to be done to the residents
of different parts of the country.
Already the revolution in business
caused by the agencies to which
we nave relerred, has made it
necessary that the federal court be
opened to suitors who would other
wise be without a full remedy in
law. At an early period in the
history of the country state bank
Jaws answered the demands of
trade, which was largely restricted
to state limits, but now the rapid
trausit has brought San Francisco
nearer to New York, when
measured by time, than was Buffa
lo fifty years ago, a national bank
ing system is demanded by a com
merce which has become national
For the same renson the important
matter of bankruptcy should be
subject to national legislation and
the Jcderal courts.
The British are rapidly extend
ing a network of railways over
India. About 30,000,000 will be

Brown-Sequard claims to have

suspends sensation without affect
ing either consci ousness or activi

for a longer period with impunity.
Iu other words, he has "invented"
a drug which will-enable a sick
person to perform all the natural
functions and to assist in his own
cure without enduring any pain.
The exhaustion which comes of in
tense suffering will be put an end
to; but there will be no sus
pension of those activities the ex
ercise of which are necessary to
The republication of the cipher
dispatches, which exposed the
scheme to buy up South Carolina
for Tilden for 30,000 in 1S7G,
leads The Charleston JSTaos and
Courier to make the statement
that Mr. Tilden agreed to con
tribute 85,000 to the expense of
the canvas in that state, "that
5,000 were spent on the faith of
Mr. Tilden's promise, .and to this
day Mr. Tilden has not repaid a
solitary cent of that which was ex
pended in his name."
Alexaxdei: III is the despair
of opera managers in St. Peters
burg. Once the Czar was a boon
to them, for the announcement
that he would "honor the perform

picion that he may attend scares
the public away, for they see vis
