A Probable .Repeal.
Dciaxo the past summer the
commissioner general of the land
iffitn Viae liafl in fVtn cUtnc nrl
territories where there are large
quantities of unsold' public lands,
a large force., of special agents
engaged in detection And investi
gation of fraudulent entries, under
the pre-emption, homestead and
timber culture acts. The reports
of these agentJ"reveal such a con
dition of facts, that in all proba
bility the secretary of the interi
or, in his annual report, will recom
mend a repeal, not only of the
pre-emption laws, but of the tim
ber culture act also. Among the
conditions which it is believed will
be urged in this repeal, are, first,
that practically, the actual settler
can get titles to his farm as soon
under the homestead act as under
the pre-emption law; and, that
there is no need of two methods to
attain the same object; that -while
the laws remain, the settlers may
take advantage of each and ac-
ijuire a title to 480 acres of public
land, by paying cash for 1G0 acres,
and, taking the remainder under
the homestead and timber culture
act, a quantity, which is suggested
is greater than a settler should be
permitted to obtain on such easy
terms. Under the present con
dition of affairs, it is claimed that
both pre-emption and timber
culture laws offer a premium to
dishonesty, as is clearly shown by
the jrrcat number of fraudulent
entries which have been detected.
Should the act of June 3, 1878,
be repealed thenumber of "news
papers" in Oregon and Washing
ton Territory would be reduced
one-half inside of sixty days, and
the "patent outside1' industry
would receive a severe blow.
The London Fire Brigade has
but fifty steam engines and 500
firemen. The estimated value of
the property to be protected is
j i i i
r : r inmi.
i Tji. sr per cenr. ion years
ago CaptShaw asked in vain for an
annual appropriation of 8000,000,
which is only $100,000 more than
he gets to-day. Yet, this very in
sufficient fire service notwithstand
ing, the losses in London are com
paratively very small against those
here, and a chief reason is that a
rigorous building law requires the
party wall, dividing one house
from another, to be carried up
several feet above the roof. Con
sequently a house is frequently
burued out without its neighbor
being any wise injured. The roofs
are slate or tile, and usually en
tirely devoid of wood cornices.
A dispatch from Vienna states
that Russia is making extensive
military preparations along the
Austrian and German frontier.
Tenders have been asked for 30,
000 military 'beds. All the rail
roads have been ordered to have
military cars in readiness. A list
has bsen made to private steamers
in the Black sea, and their-cap-,..
tains have been ordered to prepare
for the transportation of ammuni
tion, troops and provisions. These
vessels have ceased executing pri
vate orders and the carriage of
corn is thus interrupted. Enor
inous provision depots have been
established along the frontier and
an army corps has been distribiyj

According to a Roman Catholic
statistician the pagans are still in
the majority, numbering about
816,000,000, against 212,000.000
Catholics, 124,000,000 Protestants,
84,000,000 "dissenters and schis
matics" of various sects, 200,000,
000 Mohammedans and 7,000,000
Jews. This statistician figures out
423,000,000 of Buddhists, 103,000,
000 "Brahmins" and 230,000,000
of idol worshipers.
Oxe of the greatest tributes to
the efficiency of our public schools,
says the New York JSun,' is the at
tendance of children of well-to-do
parents, who could afford the ex
pense of private schools if they
did not prefer the others. These
little ones should make good citi
zens, for they are impressed early
in life with the Democratic princi
ple of equality.
Timber claims in Kansas have,
as a rule, been held as a marketa
ble commodity, or "boot ' in hors;
trades, and when their cultivation
has been attempted, the act has
been an insult to the ground,
death to the tree, and an- unmiti
gated swindle on the owner
emphatically so if he happened to
be a non resident.
No news from "Wall street for
