TnK Tacoina Ledger is aiakiugwar
on the Chinese residents of Tacoma,
and on the men who rent their prop
erty to Chinamen. In the course of
its editorials ocenrs the follewing:
-All are agreed that it the China
men remain here Tacoma is doomed.
The Chinamen themselves admit this
by their conduct, for if the white pop
ulation are driven from it, they them
selves will not remain, hut will he
found like beasts of prey on the track
of the wandering while refugees, only
to halt in their ravenous march, when
the b3nd he pursues shall have found
another favorable site on which to
begin life anew and rear another city.
Tacoma itself would not in this event
be suitable for the occupancy of
OhiuaniiMj. ITence. we are in this
Chinese question dealing with beasts
of prey, more destructive of our in
terests and our welfare than the bear
or the cougar, because these can be
killed off. There is no treaty to pro
tect these: no international pact by
which they shall be singularly
authorized to forage and rob, to
pull down homes and destroy cities
to blight with heathenism, to spread
moral contagion and drive us from
place to place on our own land. It
being admitted then, that these two
races cannot exist together without
the impoverishment and distress of
one of them, and that one the Ameri
can, the question spontaneously sug
gests itself: "Which shall go? Even,
if we were so inclined, should we go,
the other race will follow us the
greedy capitalist with the bamboo
stick, accommodatingly carried by
the still greedier American Mandarin,
will not halt till we halt, pursuing us
like the implacable vengeance of Ne
meis. Hence, flight or retreat is im
possible, if by it wo expect to better
our condition, Jo shako from our
shoulders this heavy Old Man of the
sea, or sever with a knife the thou
sand blood-sucking, life-choking ten
tacles of these thousands of devil
fish." Advioes from England indicato
that the movement recently begun
for the importation of frozen meat
from Bueno3 Ayres, so far has proved
a success, and has injured the sale of
packed meats, of which nearly 80 per
cent goes to that country. Freights
are low and four cents a pound repre
sents the maximum that must be paid.
Considerable solicitude has been felt
by shippers of salmon to that country,
which trade has been affected by a
case of injured goods. The sales con
sequently stopped as soon as the case
was reporle 1, and the goods brought
scarcely sixty per cent in London of
what they were in New York. Indeed,
it is thought salmon could easily hs
sent from San Francisco to Liver
pool at the present low rates of
freight, and imported thence to that
country without costing more than
at present, if it were not for the im
port duty. Vessels from Buenos
Ayres are bringing lo London on
their bi-weekly trips largo quantities
of frozen meats.
A gXuO'ce at the map of the west
African coast north of the equator
will convey better than any descrip
tion some idea of the magnificent
position occupied thereon by Great
Britain; she holds nearly nine hun
dred miles of coast, and commands
the mouths of several most import
ant rivers. The territorial poses
sions are comprised in a settlement
at the month of the river Gambia,
and some distance up it, and the set
tlements alongjthe littoral at Sierra
Leone and Sherbro. the gold coast
and Lagos. The settlement at the
river Gambia tone of the greatest
waterways cl northwest Africa) dates
nearly three centuries back, and that
of Sierra Leone about, one hundred
years. It is about two centuries
since the first British gold coast set
tlements were formed.
If Cleveland sends Thurman to
England as our representative, ho
ought to get a. hearty hurrah from
every American in the laud. For
Thurman is an American, and being
an American will bo in happy con

constantly apologizing for being born
on the wrong side of the Atlantic

The New York World says that
the mugwumps did the Domocratic
party faithful service, but that they
drove from the party as many votes
&s they brought to its aid.
The reason why the 4th of March
became fixed as the date for the be
ginning of the term of a president
and vice-presideutot the United
States is that hi 17$9 the first Wednes
day in March was the 4th of that
month, and the first "Wednesday in
March was the day fixed by the law of
1783 after the constitution was rati
fied for the new government to go
into operation. "Washington, how
ever, was not inaugurated on that
day, because a quorum did not as
semble in the two houses of congress
until the 6th of April. Thi3 was on
a Monday, and the .electoral votes
which elected "Washington president
and Adams vice-president were count
ed that day, and the former was in
augurated on Thursday, April 30th.

The Mahdi is really a dervish who
professes to be a prophet; a being di
rectly inspired by God and com
manded by Him to chase the infidel
out of Egypt, He sends his emissar
ies in bands of half a dozen each all
over the country and these onvoys
excite the people lo make war on the
foreigner. Wherever there are Be
douins there also are the Mahdi's sol
diers; that is to say, the natives from
the Mahdi's army, and will continue
to so as long as Allah seems to fight
on his side.
In' Orange there lives a prominent
citizen who is related to President
Cleveland. His wife is related lo
Vice-President Hendricks. They
have an only son, ten years old, whose
name is Hendricks Cleveland. Per
haps there never was such a remark
able and similar coincidence.
The San Fraucisco Call says that

crop of the coming season by way
of this road to New Orleans, thence
to England in steamships. Special
rates will be made for this freight to

all was over.
The Chicago Tribune bitterly at
tacks President Arthur for having
