Commenting ou certain efforts of
eastern railroad managers lo arrange
matters to- sxiit themselves, the 2scw
York Tribune mya:
Messrs. Huntington, Porter anil a
number of other railroad kings who
were announced as promoters or the
Railway Shareholders association,
which has just been organized for the
dissemination of news to stockholders
and for the protection of their inter
ests, have hastened to deny, in the
most vigorous manner, that they had
anything to do with the project The
denial was hardly necessary. Those
gentlemen have msde their immense
fortunes under a system which de
nies information to stockholders and
allows thorn the protection which the
uudor dog usually gets from the
upper. The proposed association, if
carried out, would clip their wings of
some of their most precious feathers.
"Who ever heard of kings leading in
movements to cut down their prerogi
tives? American roads which make
pooling and all other kinds of agree
meats with each other as to connec
tions, methods of business and rates,
have a freedom entirely unknown to
corporations in Great Britain.
The latest report ot the English
Railway Commission, which has just-
been printed in England, gives an
idea of the restrictions thrown about
the roads there in making their
working agreements with each other.
No such agreement, it appears, is
valid until it has been advertised in
accordance with certain forms, bo
that both the stockholders and the
public may know jnst what the agree
ment amounts to and may make such
objections as they desire to the com
missioners, who, strange to say, listen
to them. As though this was not
sufficiently socialistic, it is provided
by the law of England that these
arrangements shall be revised even
ten years, and, if necessary, shall be
modified to conform to the public
interest America is popularly con
sidered to le a freer count ry than
England, and so it evidently is from
the point of view of the Yaaderbilts
and Ooxilds and Iluntiuglonp, who
run our railroads ;? they choose, but,
aftor all, if liber';, hi not license lo
do as you choose, but protection from
the license of others to do as they
choose, it really seems possible that
there may be more liberty. in Eng
land for customers of railroads and
minority stockholders than in this
A GHASTLY VOYAGE.
Captain- Baker, of the Mm. IT.
Hesse, recently arrived in Boston, says
his barl: was directly iu the vicinity
of Anjiers at the time of the terrible
disaster, which hilled thousands, and
chauged the face ot the land around
Sttuda Straits. He left Batnvia Au
gust 10th, and the following morning
at daylight those on deck noticed a
heavy bank of clouds rising from the
west and obscuring the sun. and at
the same time the barometer dropped
down to 29.40, and :igain suddenly
rose to 30.70. All hands were called
and sail taken off as fast as possible,
heavy showers of sand and ashes
commenced railing, completely cover
ing decks and spars to a depth of sev
eral inches. By noon it had grown
darker than the darkest night and
commenced to blow a hurricane, but,
strange to say, the sea remained per
fectly smooth. Heavy rumblings, like
distant thunder, were constantly
heard at intervals. " The sky was
lighted up by lightning Hashes, and a
strong smell of sulphur permeated
the atmosphere and made it difficult
to breathe All hands were affected
by this awful scene, and many of the
sailors thought the world was coming
to an end.
Throughout the gale the tide set
strongly to the westward, and the
bark drove through the water at the
rate or fourteen knots an hour. At
3r.M. the sky commenced lo grow
brighter, but ashes continued to fall
like snow. On the following day the
bark entered the straits of Suuda
and the extent of the damage done
was plainly to be seen. "Whole islands
had sunk, and those that remained
had changed in form. The north
western part of Krakatia Island had
disappeared, and Yerelatin and Long
Island, heretofore covered with
trees, were completely bare. They
saw a very largo number
ot bodies, and the water
for miles was covered with trees and
dead bodies. The sea for COO miles
was a field of lavji. They experienced
a hurricane from the north and north
east with a tremendons sea, which
lasted for three days. During this
time the decks and cabin were flood
ed with water, and a portion of the
bulwarks and everything moveable
on the deck was washed away. The
most fearful thing of all was the sea
of corpses; "for nearly three days we
came across body after body of per
sons who had lost their lives in the
earthquake." One man alone counted
sixty in plain sight, and thousands
must have perished.
Tin: petition to congress concern
ing the forfeiture of the Astoria land
grant is receiving numerous signa
tures through the Willamette valley,
and as far east as "Wasco county.
The wonders of the Yellowstone
region are said lo be rivaled if not
excelled by the recent discoveries of
Prof. Pumpelly's surveying party iu
northern Montana, The region ex
plored is aronnd the Upper Marias
Pass, west of the Rocky Mountain
range, and about 150 miles north of
Missoula. Aside from the mountain
scenery, there are three great natural
amphitheaters, in one of which Prof.
Pumpclly counted twenty-two cas
cades over 500 feet in height, while on
a neighboring mountain is a trne
glacier, having a frontage of at least
a mile, and in some places a fall esti
mated at 509 feet in height The
Northern Pacific road runs near
enough to these new wonders' to make
them easilv accessible to the curious.
Sin TV11.FEID Ijawsox, the English
radical statesman, does not know why
people should quarrel over politics or
religion. Ho would as soon think of
quarreling with a-pereon having the
rheumatism., "A man has the rhcu (
matisni because it is a disease of his i
body, and a Tory is a Tory because he
is not strong enough to resist the
atlaeks of error." "Mr. Glads one
once said that the duty of a govern
ment is to make it easy for men to do
right and difficult for them to do
wrong, and the duty of the people in
relation lo the government is to make
it easy for the government to do right
and difficult for it lo do wrong."
