"Xtfwtfacrn Pacific lws no lloat

with much earnestness. "It has
Ikhmi by the Oregon and
Transcontinental company, we
cotikl not issue second tnortrarc
bonds without, getting the consent
of our stockholders. We do not
contemplate anything of that
kind, we have discussed it. There
is no neod of any new issue of
bonds, because there is no float
ing debt, for the Oregon and
Transcontinental Company holds
satisfactory obligations of the
Northern Pacific, railroad, as in
business a merchant ma borrow
money on his note. I consider
every obligation of the Northern
Pacific just as good as gold.'
One hears occasionally, says the
IPorA, through the English socie
ty papers, of the presumption,
arrogance, vulgarity, and impu
dence of American tourists in
England, but we doubt that the
English papers can furnish an
American example combining all
these qualities that will at all com
pare with her distinguished son,
the young Earl of Onslow. He
solicited and obtained an invita
tion to join the Villard excursion
party. Then he demanded an en
tire car for himself, and turned up
his nose at the other guests.
Then he refused to allow any of
the guests to pass through his car.
Considering that ever' one of the
guests cost the railroad five hun -dred
dollars, and the Earl of Ons
low has four persons with him, it
will look to most Americans as
if this son of nobility were little
better than a free-lunch fiend and
a professional dead-head.
Oxk of the cleverest brochure
we hava.lately read was received
on yesterday's steamer. 3t is a
book of 95 pages entitled U,S4, a
political revelation," and in in
cisive English gives a history of
political movements in the United
States, from the summer of 1S83
to the summer of 1SS4, when in
the National Republican Conven
tion at Philadelphia Blaine was
nominated for the presidency, and
in the National Democratic Con
vention at Louisville, Ky., Ben But
ler received the Democratic nomi
nated for that exalted position. It
is seldom we mention the books
received at this office, but anyone
who will send to Donnelly & Co.,
223 Carter street, Philadelphia, for
a copy of the work, will be inter
ested, amused, and, possibly, in
structed. The New York Examiner says:
"A Methodist preacher of long ex
perience (a doctor of divinity, too)
lately remarked in a southern pa
per: I have known hundreds of
men and women, who made no
pretensions to holiness, who had
experie.'iced no 'second blessing,'
who sought no 'higher life,' who,
in fact, were just as pure, true
and holy, in life and conversation
as the best so-called 'holiness peo
ple' ever saw, and not half so
troublesome in the church.' There
is nobod who- can stir up so many
church rows, and keep them boil
ing so long, as your brother or
sister who has received the 'sec
ond blessing,' and is living the
'higher life.' "
The vast population, traffic and
turmoil of the world's metroplis
are strikingly suggested by the
simple statement that 2,200 trains
leave the railroad stations of Lon
don every twenty-four hours.
The run of salmon on the north
west coast has ceased. The Rivers
Inlet Company packed the past
season 0,500 cases, the Victoria
Packing Company salted 2,000
barrels, the Aberdeen and Inver
ness Canning Companies liave
each G,500 cases, the British
American 100, White & Cuthberts,
at Balmoral, 500, Weltleakatia U,
000, Warren & Co., of Nass Har
bor, 9,000 cases and 2,000 barrels
salted, Crossdale & Co., 1,100
cases at Bella Coola, McDowell &
Co., "300 barrels. The steamer
brought down 0,000 cases from
Skcena and 100 barrels from Alert
Oregon Short Line engineers
report the line from Burnt Puver
to Lewiston practicable. A no
ticeable feature of their report is
that though they represent that
there will be some cuts, rock
work, and in one case a 1,500 foot
tunnel, 'et they place the cost of
the road, ready to operate, at $:5,
000 per mile. It is evident that
if such a road can be built for $35,-
000 a mile, the alleged estimates
of Yillard's engineers are grossly
