The public debt statement for May
shows a decrease of $4,763,241. The
available cash balance is $147,817,660.
The members of the Massachusetts
legislature have raised their salaries

These are fully 20,000 people be

All appropriations in the river
and harbor bill affecting California
and Oregon have been passed by the

The St Louis people are already
talking about a world's fair, to be
held in that city in 1892, commemo
rative of the 400th anniversary of the
discovery of America by Columbus
A utekk "ago it looked as if the
Demoorutic presidential nominee
would be S. J. Tilden; after his letter
there was a little boom forS. J. Field,
and now there is considerable talk of
running S. J. Randall.
Ekqlish papers are still objecting
to the recent nomination of Blaine. It
is quite not clear just what the country
ib going to do about it, but it is evi
dent that the Chicago delegates made
a great mistake in presuming to name
their candidate before consulting
The money asked for by Secretary
Frelinghuysen is desired to promote
negotiations for a treaty that has
been pending for many months past
between the United States and Nicar
agua, the securement of whioh, it is
claimed, will guarantee the suprem
acy of the United States upon the
isthmus, and will avert the possibility
of a foreign war for the control of
Central America and the maintenance
of the Monroe doctrine.
Ax effort is makint? to introduce
into the house of representatives a
temperance bill w"hich provides that
liquor drinkers shall be licensed, and
that any man so licensed shall wear
a badge openly on his coat Under
the guise of temperance this is doubt
less a scheme on the part of some
badge manufacturing company to
boom its business. It will also af
ford employment to skillful design
ers, as men of different tastes would
require appropriate emblems.
Some very curious statistics as
to paper-making have recently been
compiled on the continent. It seems
that there are 3,9S5 paper mills on the
face of the earth, in which annually
1,904,000,000 pounds of paper 'are
manufactured. Half of this paper is
used for printing; 600,000,000 pounds
for newspapers only, the consump
tion of which has risen by 200,000,
000 pounds during the last ten years.
As to the consumption in different
countries, an average of 11 pounds
is used by an Englishman, 10
pounds by an American, 8 pounds by
a German, 7rf pounds by a French
man S pounds by nn Italian or
Austrian, 1 pounds by a Spaniard, 1
pound by a Russian, and 2 pounds
by a Mexican.
It has been discovered by a Berlin
professo r that the moon is inhabited.
Instead of being a dried up, crusty
old boom, it is a land flowing with
milk and honey. There are oities,
towns and fertile plains, -while men
and women are thicker than the of.
flce-seekers at a Chicago convention.
Professor Blendmann even goes the
length of hinting that rare oppor
tunities are offered in the moon for
enterprising earthly persons possessed
of a little capital. It will be at once
apparent to all discerning persons
that the bolters who had their feelings
so severely woundedin Chicago would
find it greatly to their advantage to
take passage by the air-line in the di
rection of the orb of night
Thebe is great demand throughout
the press at present for snake stories.

this peculiar exhibition of journalistic

There is always a run on snake stories
during presidential years. They seem
to suit the spirit of the time. Repub
licans find in them a lesson which
they frequently fail to heed, and for
the average Democrat they hold a
fascination which cannot well be ex
plained. Snake stories are certainly
not pleasant reading, but neither are
the average convention speeches.
After the conventions the snakes will
be found, -where snakes are common
ground "the stump,"
Two years ago, Dana, editor of the
Now York Sun, answered some news
papers that proposed to nominate
him for the presidency in "84 that "he
would rather be theeditorof the Sun
than president of the United States.
He may have changed his opinion
since then, but president oNthe
United States he can never be. The
people do not want a ghouL In gen
eral a newsapper's fight ends with
the death of the individual it attacks'
but in the case of the lamented Gar
field the grave had no sooner closed
over him than the Sun began a most
brutal attack on his memory and
kept it np for two years.
