ASTOEIA, OREGON: THTJItSDAY..... NOVEMBER 1, 1883 Peovincetowx, Massachusetts, has hauled in about 10,000,000 pounds of codfish this year. Subset Cox recently said in an interview with a press representa tive: "You might as well ex pect to run a powder mill in hell as an honest government with an overflowing treasury." Articles of incorporation of the United States Central Railroad with a capital of 75,000,000 have been filed in Denver, Colorado. The road will run from Denver to San Francisco, and when com pleted will be the shortest and easiest grade between the two cities. The Helena, (Mont.) Herald claims for its place that "it is the the richest cit in the country in proportion to the population. There are fifty men whose incomes are above 10,000 each, and quite a number of these enjoy aunual receipts of 100,000. Tins, for a population of 7,500,- is certainly a comfortable showinir. Tue New York Herald thinks that Mexico is just about reach ing that stage of political prog ress which our country attained when articles of confederation were iramea unaer wnicn we waged the war of independence Her greatest need is the same with which heaven supplied our coun try during the period in which our constitution was adopted and the present federal government organ ized. A statesman with the fac ulty of Hamilton or Gallatin would bo worth more to Mexico to-day than all her renerals. The report of the Commissioner of Pensions shows that there were 303,G5S pensioners on the roll at the end of the fiscal ear, June 30, 1S83. During the year the names of 3S,1G new pensioners were added and the names of 70 G whose pensions had been dropped previously were restored to the roll, making 38,958 pensions added an excess of 10,G45 over the pre ceding year. The average annual value of each pension wasSlOG.lS, and the aggregate annual value of all pensions was $32,245,102, an increase of 2,901,090. The amount paid for pensions was G0,0G1,009, exceeding their an nual value by several million dol lars. The bulk of this excess was on account of arrears of pensions covering the period prior to the al lowance of claims. Ax important chapter in the constitutional history of Norway has been opened. The whole of the members of the Norwegian ministry have been impeached by the lower house of the national as sembly before the Rigsret or Su preme Tribunal of the realm, and the trials open to-day with the case of Mr. Selmer, the prime minister. The ministers are charg ed with acting contrary to the interests of the country in having advised the king to refuse his sanction to the bill which has been carried by three successful storth ings for the admittance of minis ters to seats in the national as sembly, to a bill involving a ques tion of supplv, and to a bill empowering the storthing to elect two additional members on -the central committee of government railways. Some daj's ago the plea set up by the council for the ac cused ministers, declaring some of the members of the court disquali fied to sit as judges, was rejected and the court had declared all its members competent to sit. As each of the eleven ministers will be tried separately, it is not likely that any result will be made known for another three or four months. The postmaster-general's order lorbidding delivery of mail to the New Qrleans National bank be cause it was the- agent of the Louisiana Lottery company is like ly to bring a good deal of atten tion to the most shameful condi tion of things in a certain way to be found in anv state. The bank has got the New Orleans postmas tor enjoined from obeying the order, and, if the suit is properly defended, a judicial decision will be reached upon some imporlant points. The bank suit is in fact brought by the lottery company, and should finally test the ques tion as to whether that concern must be recognized as a legitimate enterprise. The company was got up at the close of the war, became rioh and powerful, and in 1879 had its charter incorporated in the constitution. It silences criti cism by constant gifts to charities, bribes to silence half the news papers in the country with high priced advertising, and prevents official interference at home bv maintaining a dictatorship in state politics. It has made and unmade governors and judges, and elected legislatures, and there are open charges that the federal judges there dare not decide against it in the present suit.
