"WEDNESDAY U'NESl. 1SS5
TH E SK 'EXTEEX-1 ";. It LOCI 'STS.
Tint Philadelphia Iti-ir has seen
it stated that in the central part of
the state a number of farmers re
port in plowing that they have turned
up large numbers of the '"seventeen
year" locusts. This is the year. The
seven teen -year locust of ljinuaus,
which was first seen in thU country
so long ago as 1S33. has come ou
time at every period. He was hero
in 1S51 and ISGS and is due now.
His coming will add to the fenrs
of the superstitious, from the zig-zag
lines at the end of his wing covers,
which take the form of a , are in
the vulgar belief supposed to hint at
war to come, although by the ancient
Egyptians, to whom these insects
were known, the locust was taken to
be a minister of religion and is so
used in their hieroglyphics.
According to Dr. AY. D. Hartmau
of West Chester, who has made an
interesting study of this locust, lit
tle is known of their infant life of
seventeen years under ground,
beneath which they have been found
at a deptli of twenty feet. "When
they come out it is feasting time for
hogs and poultry. Hens will cat
enough to color their eggs and flesh.
Even cats eat them.
Sixteen broods have been traced in
this country. Of these the last
brood is indigenous from Massachus
etts to Georgia, and west Ohio and
Michigan. Their favorite haunts
are among young oaks and chestnuts.
Indians boil them and they are so
fat that soap has been made from
thorn. "Where they come from and
where they come from or go to no
one knows definitely. They do not
effect much damage except to young
trees, and their advent is more a sub
ject of curios ity than of alarm.
Prof. Riley, the eminent entomol
ogist, says: "It appears that this
seventeen year locust docs not breed
in those northern stales, or portions
thereof, in which the woods are com
posed more or less exclusively of
pine trees or other conifers, llhode
Island possesses no broods so far as
we know, but this may be due to
want of proper records, as several
broods reach close to the borders of
that slate. Neither does the species
occur in the peninsula of Florida, for
reasons either of a climatic or geo
logical nature. Our knowledge of
the western extent has greatly in
creased since 1SGS, and some broods
can now be traced as far west as east
ern Montana and Wyoming, central
Colorado and the extreme western
parts of Texas, while less reliable
evidence even indicates that the
species may occur in western Mon
tana along streams emptying into the
Pacific ocean. Unless this report be
substantiated in future, the range
will not extend beyond the dividing
range of the Rocky mountains."
The pay-as-you go principle is
making headway in American cities.
As a Springfield, Mass.. councilman
said the other day, " borrowing
money at interest when the city has
ready cash isn't the thing." The
point was carried, thus scoring a
clear advance. Borrowed money in
the conduct of city business is too
much like "found" money to the in
dividual. Easy come, easy goes.
The notion that a city must borrow
money to get things easily and
quickly has been fostered jointly by
the large pioperty-holder and the
money-changer, the one because he
speculates upon the morrow, the other
because of the direct profit The
simple truth is that taxation is the
quickest resource in an emergency.
A city should carry a moderately
large cash balance, but beyond this
it should be able to levy and collect a
tax within a week. The contrary
view has almost universal acceptance,
but it is certain to go down.
Gekeuaij Pope has transmitted to
the war department an account of the
killing of a Piute Indian named Joe,
by two white men in Happy valley,
Oregon. In commenting upon the
killing, General Pope again invites
attention to white and Indian out
rages which are increasing in fre
quency in the southern part of Ore
gon. He says the Piutes having no
reservation, are willing to go to and
frequent that country for subsistence,
by hunting and fishing. The state of
affairs now existing is certain to grow
worse, and must finally culminate in
open hostilities, unless a reservation
is assigned these Indians, and they
are placed on it. The commissioner
of Indian affairs has directed the
agent to investigate the circum
stances and report measures looking
to the protection of the Indians.
A remarkable piece of information
has been received at San Francisco,
in a special dispatch to the Chronicle
from New York, which states that
Mcssedainlia Bey, former governor of
upper Egypt, has written to the Ital
ian commander at Mmwownh that he
recently has mini a Suau who had
passed three mouths at the reaideuce
of EI Mahdi, after the fall of Khar
toum. He says El Mahdi has Gordon
in secret keeping, haviug discovered
him severely wounded, but not dead,
and that Gordon, has recovered. The
story is credited at Mumownh, and
forms the subject of u official dis
patch. Ar the state fi.-di hatcher at Hat
creek, Shasta eouuty, t'al., a aahuon
hatchery is soon to be built. It is
the intention of the commissioners to
hateh about four million salmon this
season, and more each succeeding
season. Two large reservoirs are to
be constructed near the hatchery, in
which to keep yonug salmon. The
hatchery will have a propagating ca
pacity of nearly fifteen million salm
on, or more than double the capacity
of the United States hatchery on Mc
A dispatch has been received at
the "Washington postoflice depart
ment from British Columbia, saying
that Hibbs, absconding postmaster of
Lewiston, Idaho, who stole 29,000,
is willing to compromise by returning
SS,000 of the stolen money for his
freedom. The posmaster general has
decided that the offer will be refused,
as the government would rather have
Hibbs than the money. Extradition
proceedings will begin in a few days.
