COMING TROUDLF. IN INDIA.
Lord Dufferia assumes the control
of the government of -British India
in a roost critical periodC Influences
are at work thrbughoul "thfit country
which are hostile to continued tran
quility; the natives a ret everywhere
restless and dissatisfied; in many sec
tions their burdens are 'greater than
they can bear, i nd, as statural conee
queiice, alarm prevails among the
British residents and there is a cry
for stations where the 'English can
take refuge in case of a new outbreak.
Happily for the, English Lord Dai
ferin is not onj a man- of large ex
perience and cpneeded ability, but he
has had an opportunity'of acquiring
special knowledge of the country he
is called upon-to govern. Twenty
years ago he was under secretary for
India under Lord Palmerston's ad
ministration. Since his sir years'
term as governor-general of Canada
he has represented Great Britain at
the courts of St Peteisburgand Con
stantinople, and latterly he has been,
in fact, the 'able ruler of'Egyp.
Whether he can b said'to have" been
a success in Egypt may" be a question,
in view of the fact that Egyptian
hatred of the English was never so
general or so bitter as now. It is abo
worth notice that Lord Dufferin's ap
pointment to, the governor-generalship
of India before the expiration of
Lord Bipon's term is regarded by the
bureaucracy of India asa rebuke "to
the conciliatory policy "wbiclrLord
Bipon was pursuing.
To an American observer, the situa
tion in India seems simply uimpo3sf
ble." "We cannot understand how
such a state of things can be endured
for a day. In no country in the world,
at no period of past history, had snob
abject misery been witnessed as tbat
which the peasantry of -the Deccan
and some parts of Northern India are
now enduring. Not only are they not
clad, which matters less' in that cli
mate than it would elsewhere; mot
only do they never eat nfeat, which Is
often contrary to their religion, but
they actually can only afford to eat
rice on holidays and subsist the rest
of the time omnillet mixed with salt
and water. In many sections they
cannot afford to buy salt, which is a
government monopoly and yields
830.000,000 annual revenue, and
poor creatures who go to places
where salt is indigenous and
lick the ground are arrested and
jailed for the crime.' When the
government of India passed from
Hie East India Company to the Brit
ish Crown, the latter as the descend
ant of the Jiojjul, sovereigns claimed
to own all the land in India. IVhia
ny places, under the Forest act, the
ryots were driven from their homes,
tneir villages, burned. and the land
inclosed for the better growth of for
est trceea. here the natives were
allowed to retain their holdings an
assessment by way of re tt was laid
upon thorn, which varies from 20 to
du per cent, of the gross value of
their crops. Persons who have known
India for a long period of time suy
that no such universal misery as
now exists prevailed under the intol
erable rule of the East India Com
poorer classes are thus
starving to death, the race hatred of
the English is. steadily growing

of Mohammedan schools and church
es have been confiscated by the gov
ernment. The two races, in act, live
side by bide in an actual condition of
warfare, the more omino -s because
the sword has not yet-lwen drawn.
Can such a connection last? And
will not tne end be all the more terri
ble because it is so long postponed?
When the mutiny broke out, t lirty
years ago, it was confined to the
soldiery. "The people" took no part
in it Now the whole couutry is ripe
for revolt From the richest to the
poorest, all exearate the English and
gioan for the time when they can
strike the )low.- There are in the
northern provinces fifty millions of
Mohammedans, everyman of whom

Circulars are -eing distributed offer

A special from Columbus, Gar. of
the 9th, says: Keen-scented blood-
bounds, as they followed theix devious
ooune through -the oivtd s point
half 'a mile up the nrerrattractedthe
attention of the people yesterday.A
few minutes' later; several horsemen
foliowinir. gave evidence of faturae
fronr a long chase. Suddenly the
bounds came to a stand, and a colored
woman, babe in arms, stood terrified
and unable to move. A little way
into a clump of bushes was seen a
colored man, who was recognized by
Sheriff Burkett of Decatur county,
and whom one of the horsemen said
was Moses Keaton, the murderer
of the Godwin family, in Mitchell
county. Grasping a shotgun, which
be had stolen on the night of the mur
der, Keaton was taking aim, when
Sheriff Burkett pushed the muzzle of
a British bulldog revolver into iiis
face, and Keaton quietly surrended.
The story of the " chase "is
one of the uost exciting on
record. On the morning of
Wednesday, one .week ago, Alex.
Godwin went to the house of his
brother, Stephen Godwin, a bachelor
and wealthy stock raiser. All was
still inside, and on opening the door
he found his brother lying dead on
the bed' in a pool of blood, with hit
head crashed and lite brains oozing
oui Itfrs. Gregory, the fiousek eper,
was lying on another bed in the same
room, with a dreadful fracture iu the
temple and otherwise badly mangled.
Diak Gregory, her soa. was found in
an adjoining room, lying dead from
a similar wound. Tkere was no signs
of robbery about the house. God
win's trousers were found on a chair
by His bedside, with money in his
pockets. His gun was missing, and
his horse and buggy were also taken
away. A local reward of $500 was at
once offered and a vigorous pursuit at
once determined upon. The pursu
ing party pushed the chase through
swamp and morass, sometimes having
sight of a track, again losing it and
thus giving the criminal the advan

county, Sheriff Burke'ti joined in the
pursuit, and it was decided to bring

The Cow For Profits.
. The most profitable cow is the one
that pays the most on her cost of
keening; That will be admitted..
Suppose, for instance, that the yield
of a cow that originally cost 350, and ,
