FRIDAY OCTOKSK 5, 1SS
Eastern papers comment se
verely on the. disclosures being
made of the conduct of some of
Villard's and Hatch's excursion
ists. The Tribune says. "If a
full history of the recent railway
excursion in the northwest should
ever be written, some extraordi
nary incidents would be revealed
to an.. astonished . world.. . . Alto
gether, jLhe jnobles nnd aristocrats
"have" regdf3p&,thc Yellowstone
and the Northern Pacific cxcuri
sions as-public scrambles, out of
which they were to get all they
couM. The smartest man was he
who snatched first at whatever he
wanted. As for mutual respect
and courtesy, which are supposed
to prevail between the master of a
feast and Ins company, it is hard
to find any trace. The worst of
fenders appear to have been Eng
lish gentlemen." .
The . evening Post editorial de
nies, apparently by authority, the
Tribunes cjiarges against the Yil
lard excursionists, and says: "The
thing which we, for our part, con
sider most discreditable in the
whole affair is the fact that vol
umes of coarse abuse should have
been hesped upon the heads of a
score of strangers and guests by
American newspapers, without a
single case, that we have heard of,
of any pains having been taken to
get at the facts from any- trust
Some wise man has said that
happiness is only relative; that we
enjoy only, by comparison, and
that our pleasure arises from con
trast with inferior conditions.
This being the case, it is for us on
this coast to be happy in the in
formation that though railroad
men can do pretty much as the'
please, yet matters arc still more
binding in -lower latitudes. It
seems that a r.ailr.ad is about to
be built in GuaUMnalaaud the en
terprising president of that heated
republic has levied a compulsory
tax of 4. per year on all persons
whose salary exceeds 8 a month,
as subsidy to the road. True, the
same thing is done here, but not
in so direct a manner.
A Chichio dispatch says: The
prospect of a cut in passenger
fates between the east and San
Francisco is not regarded as
liboral. The TTrthl says: ltTJic
fare between Omaha, ev.'ii at 05,
is an outrage 1,90J mil. at
five cents a mile." Tl$ Times
says: "The question is why rates
on railroads built at the cost of the
people should be twice as much
on local travel as chyges on roads
built by private enterprise," and
concludes by saying: "The
Northern Pacific, in entering the
pool, will retard the growth of the
northwest, proving . a thousand
fold more injurious than if a
through liberal rate were offered
to encourage travel.
In a recently published pamph
let, John Roach, the Chester ship
builder, says that in the last eight
een years this country has spent
only. $3,000,000 for new naval
vessels. As the naval appropria
tions during that time aggregate
383,000,000, it becomes an in
teresting question where the odd
or even 3S0;OOO,OOO went. Prob
ably Robeson could partly dis
close. A wulosopiieu of the New
York Herald thus sums it all up:
"Life consists of cutting teeth in
childhood, of the pangs of unre
quitted love in youth, of dyspopsi:
in manhood, of a fear of death in
old age, and an oppressive certain
ty that the lawyers will contest
your will and pocket most of your
General Gnooii says he didn
promise the Apaches immunity
from punishment. The thought
he promised and he couldn't make
them understand he had nopower
in the matter.
A New York dispatch says
stocks are weaker and slower. In
early dealing there was a decline
of A to 1, the latter Oregon and
Transcontinental, and -which sold
down to 52f. Subsequently it'
rallied one-eighth to one-half.
In the afternoon -prices fell off
perceptibl, and the lowest figures
for some time for many shares
were current. Northern Pacific
declined per cent, to 33f ; pre
ferred to G0. Oregon and Trans
continental, 3g to 49, the lowest
figure ever touched; Northwest,
1 to 122; preferred, 1 to 143;
Omaha, 101. - In other active
shares the decline ranged from
to If per cent., Kansas and Texas
and Texas Pacific sufierinr the
most. The market srencrallv
It is stated that .the sharp de
cline in'Oregon and Transconti-j
nental was occasioned by a f ived j
sale of round amounts of stock j
The bears also reported that the
Gould part had broken their
ranks, and pointed to the decline
in Kansas -and Texas and" Texas
Pacific as evidence.
Rumors of fresh iron failures
were frely used by the boars
against the share list. The bears
also circulated a report that the
Pennsylvania Company had de
cided to resume the practice of
paying a commission to ticket
agents, which, it was claimed, was
almost equivalent to a notice that
rates will not be maintained in the
future. There was no lack of oth
er rumors and decline in prices.
Jennie June has been talking
to the women of New York, and
her text is ""Work is infinitely
more important to woman than a
vote." That is so, and yet one of
the best ways to secure work is the
ability to vote. The average legis
lator respects votes more than
According to the Pev. Ileber
Newton a quiet movement among
church-going people. has sprung
up to wear the plainest of clothes
to church, as many poor people
have been kept, away by the
meanness of their clothing.
It is saidthat there are enough
iron furnaces in the United States
to produce all the iron the country
can consume, and more, ioo. The
growth of this industry in the last
ten years has beeu enormous.
