THE NORTHERN PACIFIC.
The directors of the Northern
Pacific Railroad company, at their
meeting in New York last Satur
day adopted the following plan for
As there is now required to pro
vide for the present refunded debt,
beyond the cash means available,
the sum of Sl),4u0,920, and as an
additional sum of 5,500,000 will be
required to complete the construc
tion of the main line new under
pontract, including bridges and
tunnels, and to provide and par
for all equipments required and
contracted for, therefore,
Jiesolvcd, Unanimously, that
this board, subject to the approval
of three-fourths of the preferred
stock, authorizes the exaction of a
second mortgage for 20,OOQ,000
on all properties, subject only to
priority of the present general
mortgage. This mortgage shall
be similar in terms and condition
to the general mortgage, subject
only to the liens of said mortgage.
Jic&olcail) That the finance
committee be directed to open ne
gotiations for the sale of the second
mortgage bonds, and report their
action to this board.
Tlcsolved, That a meeting of
the preferred stockholders of this
company be called, to be held at
the office of the company in New
York the 20th day of November
to vote upon this question and the
issue of 250,000 of second mort
gage bonds, and that, in accor
dance with the plan of reorganiza
tion, the secretary give notice of
said meeting at least thirty days
prior thereto; and that for the pur
pose of said meeting the transfer
books of the preferred stock of
this company be closed the 20th
da' of October at 3 i m. and re
main closed until the 2Gth of No
vember at 10 a. M.
Jicsolced. That the officers of
the company be requested to pub
lish, with all dispatch, for the in
formation of the stockholders, a
circular giving full particulars of
the funded and unfunded debt of
this company and of the present
condition of the operating and
land departments, including in the
latter cancellation of bonds with
the proceeds of land sales.
The directors have re-elected
the old board of officers, and au
thorized the issue of $20,000,000
second mortgage bonds, subject to
the approval of the preferred
stockholders. It will require the
consent of three-quarters" of these
shareholders, and it is thought no
serious objection will be made to
the issue. The proceeds will wipe
ut the floating debt, and will also
be applied to the completion and
equipment of the line.
A New Chinese Cry.
Ip.is easy enough as a general
rule to find out what a foreigner
thinks of a Chinaman; but what a
Chinaman thinks of a foreigner, is
owing to .their seclusion and a
certain obscurity about the mean
of their tea-chest and firecracker
literature, much harder to get hold
However a handbill recently
distributed through one of the
Chinsse provinces is, if correctly
translated, not difficult to compre
hend. It is candid in tone and
does not beat about the bush in its
criticism of Europeans. It says
that Europeans do not belong to
the human race; that they are the
descendants of apes and geese;
their appearance resembles that of
apes; their heart that of the devil;
for this reason they arc called
"kouitse" (European devils). This
race of savages worship neither
Heaven or earth, does not honor
its parents, has no reverence for
its ancestors. . Among them the
ancity of family ties is unknown, j
......... i. !
A veritable herd ol dogs and pigs,
their talk is only of equality; they
know no distinction between
father and son, King and sub
The English are the worst of
them all "a small tribe on an
island not bigger than your hand."
The reason that the' can make
steamers, railways, watches, etc.,
is because, -under pretext of
preaching religion, they come to
snatch away the eyes and brains
of the dying, to extract blood from
children; and with these eyes,
these brains and this blood they
make medicinal pills, which they
sell in their country, and so ac
quire ability to do all these
things. Onlv those who have
eaten our Chinese substance have
their eyes opened sufficiently to
make the discoveries of which the'
are so vain. v
It is then urged that Europe be
divided into districts, and at a
riven signal all rise "like one
man" and "drive out these sav-
acres.' iiic name oi tne imnese

Denis Kearney who wrote this ap
peal is not given, but is evidently
a poor translation of his war cry;
"The Chinese must go." Only in
this case it is the Europeans who
Huge Oyster Big Yarn.
"How's that for an ister?" said
the skipper of an oystennan,po:nt
ing to an enormous shell that laid
on the deck. "It ain't not only a
big shell," he continued, "but it's
got a powerful big yarn that goes
The shell was certainly four
feet long, large enough to sgrvo as
a bath-tub for a small boy and
must have weighed over 250
pounds, as the reporter could not
move it with one nana. It was
one of the largest bivalves known,
the tridacna gigas, "more properly
allied to the dams, but passing as
a very respectable oyster.
"The yarn? Well, Giilis was
one o' those speculatin' chaps, al
ways lookin' for the main chance,
swappin' knives, clothes, anythin'
to make a cent, and cute as they
make 'em. So, when the ship
struck the Straits o' Sunda and
kem to, off he goes with a couple
o' nijnrers what came aboard to
git coral and things. "Wall, they
was wadin' along, as Gil said,
haulin' the canoe after 'em, and
pickin' up chunks of coral and
conchs and such, and all at once
Gil see what looked like a flower,
all pink and yellow, and not know-
in' what it was, up .he goes and
gives it a kick with his foot. The
next minute he felt somethin'
close over his foot like a vice and
was gripped as ef he'd took root,
and lookin' down he see his foot
nipped in one of those ere shells.
Pull and haul every way he would
he couldn't move, and they
oouldn't get at the critter, as it
was buried in the coral and the
tide on the flood; it rises about
sis feet in that country. Wall,
they thumped the critter with
their oars and hauled away for
awhile, all to no puppus, and curus
enough, Gil had left his knife
aboard and the only thing to do
was to go for it. So one of the
coons started off for the bark, and
she a lyin' two miles away. The
other chap stood by Gil in case he
gov out, and there they was, the
tide a risin' eveiy minute; but in
about three-quarters of an hour
the ship's cutter came along. The
boys gev Gil a cheer that kind o'
braced him up and skipper had
sent his grog. Overboard jumps
the mate, with one o' these spades
they use in whalin', and in about
a minute the critter was all cut up
and Gil yanked aboard; but I'll
be dogged if the water wasn't
. . 1 i m i .
most up to his chin, i he next
day they went at low tide and got
out the critter's shell, and that's
the yarn and there's the shell," j
said the skipper in conclusion.
Try Them With Cake
I know a nice old Yankee lady
who always applies a certain test
to any young man who "pays at
tention" to one of her grand
daughters. After a certain time
she offered him some of her home
made cake. If he eats it with
avidity he mutely gives consent,
if not, she instantly begins to op
pose the match, not as one would
sappose from wounded vanity, but
she has a theory that "Men who
like cake never drink or smoke or
lead dissipated lives of any sort.
"Give me," she says, "a man that
loves ginger bread; it's a" sure
sign he isn't fond of whisky."
The young lady may not be al
ways right, but I think there in a
grain of truth in her fancy. At
least it is a very easy test to put
your suitors to, and you might try
it. Only don't give them notice
before hand, for as the old lady
says, when Ezra came courting
her youngest daughter Jane, she
told her mother's views, and the !
quantity Ezra ate was surprising.
Once married all was changed.
He never touches it now, and he
keeps a demijohn in the pantry."
So, girls, take warning and be
