HAD TO FIND A SCAPEGOAT.

A Tribunes St. Paul special sends
the follotring: "A well informed ex
railroad man o St Paul says: 'I was
in New York this fall, after the re
turn of Yillard, and from friends
there on the Northern Paciflc learned
that It had been decided that Yillard
must step down and out by the 1st of
January, 1831. Drexel, Morgan &
Uo., of New York, and Drexel ec Uo.t
of Philadelphia, are and were inimi
cal to him in the sense that they
must find a scapegoat, and lit was
chosen, lou see, Drexel, Morgan k
Co. stand in the same position to the
Northern Pacific that Jay Gould once
did, except m the important particu
lar that the road is completed and is
not bankrupt They staked their
reputation, as it were, on ineir auii
ity to make its stock reach par. and
succeeded, as you know, only to see
it, to their intense mortihcation, fall
lower and lower, until, to give round
numbers, preferred Northern Pacific
sank to 50, common to 2u, and Oregon
Transcontinental, which cost its pos
sessors83 cents in hard cash, went
down below 50. Their chagrin was
leep, as was natural, aud as I have
said, a scapegoat being necessary.
Yillard was selected to play tne part.
Ho will not be president of the North
ern Pacific on New Year s Day, 1884.
I hare no doubt whatever, that the
fall of ten points in Northern Pacific
after Yillard had started on his fam
ous excursion was engineered by
Drexel, Morgan & Co. They were
bears for a time, but started a down
ward rush that they could not check,
and in hurting Yillard they also
hurt thoir own property far more
than they had believed possible.
Frederick Billings has never recov
ered from his mortification at be
ing ousted by Yillard and he has
knifed the latter constantly. He
was kept accurately posted as to all
the movements and interests of the
management, and has consequently
been in a position to do great harm.
In his course he has been aided by
George V. Sims, formerly his private
secretary, but later that of Oakes. It
is also known in New York that
Oakes is a heavy loser through the
stock depression. He has lost all his
accumulations, in fact, and, as I hap
pen to Traow, was exceedingly nerv
ous about his position last October,
believing that he would accompany
Villard into the outer world. How
many more of the present Northern
Pacific officials are heavy losers I
don't pretend to know.' "
How Salmon Ecrs Are Obtained.
The work of stripping begins dur
ing the latter part of October and is
continued until all the fish have been
operated upon. The Portland (Me.)
correspondent of the Boston Journal
says that the fish when wanted are
taken from the water in a dip net,
and their condition readily ascertain
ed by gently pressing the abdomen
just back of the pectoral fin. If the
ova are ripo they will bo felt like so
many peas beneath the skin, and a
slight pressure will cause them to bo
deposited in a pan placed for that
purpose. If the ova are not ripe, or
tha fish is not disposed to yield them,
she is returned to the water a few
days longer. After the ova has been
deposited the milt is obtained from
the male in the same manner,
and immediately after falling upon
the ova it diffuses itself among them,
causing them to at once individual
ize and grow harder, till within two
hours they will be as hard as unripe
peas and perfectly globular in form.
At once after this fertilizing process
the ova are washed several times in
cold water, and then set away in cold
water for a couple of houre, that all
impurities may be removed. Tho
number of eggs obtained from each
fish varies from 2,000 to 20,000, tho
latter number having been obtained
this season from a 44-inch salmon,
estimated to be a dozen or more
years old, and about as old as any
are ever obtained for spawning pur
poses, as the ages of such fish are
estimated to be from four to fourteen
years. At the expiration of the two
hours mentioned above tho ova are
prepared for the hatching troughs
b' being placed upon tho wire screens
with meshes about an eighth of an
inch square. These screens are in
closed in frames a foot square, and
thick enough to allow a half inch of
water to flow beneath each one, to
assist which an eighth of an inch of
an inch is removed from the bottom
of each of tho four sides for three
fourths of their length. Ten of these
hatching frames are then placed
above each other in a skeleton frame
to form a "nest," and the whole then
deposited in the hatching troughs of a
depth and width just sufficient to con
tain a row of these nests, after which
tho water is turned on and a steady
flow maintained through the trough
till the latter part of January, when
the ova will have developed as much
as it is safe to allow before distribu
tion among the several states, under
whose care they aro finally hatched
and disposed as'desired.
"When a citizen of Sault Ste. Marie,
Mich., wishes to send a letter to a
friend in the opposite village on the
Canadian side of the river, he directs
it, prepaying the postage, and puts
it in the post office on the American
side: then, in order to reach the post
office on the Canadian side, which is
about one mile distant, the letter goes
to Detroit through the United States
mails, crosses the Detroit to Windsor,
where it enters the Canadian mails,
and is sent over Canadian rontes back
to the Sault, reaching the Ganadian
office in about ten days from the time
it started ten days to go one mile.
But when one is in a hurry he goes
across the river himself; ho doesn't
write. This is something after tho
style of certain" mail service in this
section, where it frequently takes a
newspaper three days to reach a post
office six miles away.
Advocating the bill that was before tho
South Carolina legislature to regulate di

the state still remains without a divorce
Rabbi Sonneschein of St Louis de
cides that the American Jew can keep
Christmas without in the least viola
ting his religious convictions. He
asserts that the 25th of December
was celebrated by the pagan world as
the time when the longest night gives
way to the lengthening of the day,
and that the early Christian church,
which had originally celebrated the
natal day or its founder in the spring
accepted at the end of the fifth cen
tury the pagan festival, transferring its
celebration of Christ's birtu, to JJe
aember. Moreover, the Maccabean
pViests iustituted a festival on the
25th of Kisler, the corresponding
Jewish month, to take the place of
this pagan feast when they had by
their victory over the Syrian king
driven out ureek idolatry. The
learned rabbi therefore advocates the
celebration of the Jewish Hannuecah
upon Christmas, adding with the gen
crosity of tin American Jew: "Our
Jewish children may thns learn by
practice and example to respect the
work of the great Nazareue and the
mission of his church. It may not be
known to all of you that the three
great doctors of mediteval Judaism
have unreservedlv proclaimed the
fact that without the continuous zeal
of his church the nations of the earth
could never have been enlisted in the
service of tho true God, whom they
learn to worship and to obey so much
through the instrumentality of the

convicted of murder in tho first de

The case was appealed to the supremo
court aud a new trial was granted,
but Gerrand was again convicted of
murder in the first degree. A gallows
was erected, but at the last moment
s respite was granted and tho sont
ance commuted to imprisonment for
life, Gerrand served in the state
prison over nine years, but has been
