A new style in ladies' bonnets is
trimmed with asses' ears. This is
rough on the dudes.
. The Wilmington, the proposed op
position steamer between San Fran
cisco and this city, will, it is thought,
make her first trip about August 1st.
The greenback folly is still preva
lent in Iowa. Five delegates to a
state greenback convention met at
Des Moines last Tuesday and nomi
nated a full state ticket.
A Michigan town has a fire depart
ment whicb consists of a chief, a
wooden pail and a ladder twenty-two
feet long. The "devouring element"
has decided to take a back seat.
The Cheyenne Indians Lave bro
ken away from their Kansas reserva
tions and are doing deviltry among de
fenceless settlers. It is the old story
over and over again. The Indian is
treated like a wolf till he becomes
one and then acts the wolf nature.
Statistics show that the mortality
among London infants whose lives
are insured is fifty per cent, greater
than among the uninsured. The pre

A Boston paper "gives away" in
this heartless fashion one member of
a numerous class: The young man
who has so freely expressed his re
gret and astonishment that his en
gagement was announced in the
Gazette, brought us the written an
nouncement himself, and requested
us to print it.
Eastern papers are filled
wailings over the depravity of
Chinese in eastern cities and the ter
rible practices they have introduced.
They called us out here " hoodlums "
and bigoted ignoramuses when a pro
test went up from the coast press a
few years ago. The eastern brethren
know more now. Hope they like it
as far as they have got.
Two illustrations of how men will
not "let well enough alone'' are given
in the Arlington, Texas, World. One
was where a plaintiff, having secured
a 23,000 verdict against a railroad
company, was dissatisfied, and got
only six cents on the next trial. The
other case was that of a man who
was acquitted of murder, "and went
away the same day and got married."
The Oregonian aud the News have
lucked horns again. So far each has
scored a point, and in all good nature
wo kindly suggest to our metropol
itan contemporaries that they drop it
while honors are easj. Don't give
tho whole business away. You never
find doctors or lawyers or ministers
telling all they know about each
other. The writer has had a good
many newspaper quarrels, in this and
other states, and never yet came out
with any increase of self respect.
There's nothing in it
A CALL for a mass meeting in favor
of the purchase of the northern tier
of states in Mexico appears in the
Sante Pe Review over the signature
of about 100 representative Spanish
Americans of both countries. The
plan contemplates the sending by our
government of a commission of lead
ing statesmen to treat with the gov
ernment of Mexico for the purchase
of the states of Chihuahua, Sonora,
Darango and Coahuilla. It is claimed
that the idle millions in the treasury
can be put to no better use, as these
states are among the most valuable
in the republic of Mexico, and could
be hadjon very favorable terms. That's
all right, but we have enough terri
tory now; wo might extend our boun
daries northwestward, but don't
want any more such element so hard
to assimilate in our national life as
The president is understood to be
dissatisfied with the way in which
the Utah commission has executed
its duties. Its somewhat timid
methods are attributed to the fact
that the members of the commission
aro all old men. The president thinks
the work or the commission might be
much more vigorously done. He
regards polygamy as an unmixed evil,
which ought to be stamped out. He
does not think the commission does
its part in the attempt to effect that
end. It is understood that after his
summer vacation the president will
reorganize the Utah commission, with
a view to more effective work on its
part There are now three republic
ans and two democrats. They will
probably all be removed, and some
more vigorous men appointed in their
places. The president is determined
that all the anti-polygamy laws shall
be honestly and earnestly enforced.
A rBoiiiNENT -naval officer is re
ported to have said at Washington,
in relation to the faot that a naval
vessel lias been ordered to Ecuader:
"You know the Iroquois has been sent
down to Guyaquil, Ecuador, to de
mand from that government the re
lease of Professor Santos. In
addition to the general instructions
her captain, Yates Sterling, had
received, he had sealed orders, which
are only to be opened in case the
government of Ecuador does not
promptly comply with the request of
the secretary of state. Of course
neither I nor anyone but the secere
taryof the navy knows what those
sealed orders are, but I can easily
imagine." "What do you believe them
to be?" was asked. "Orders to
take Santos, if necessary, by force,"
was the prompt reply; "and there is
an interesting feature of this matter.
It has been rumored among diplo
matic representatives of South Amer
ican governments in Washington,
and believed in higher quarters, that
Ecuador has made anallianc, offens
ive and defensive with Chili and that
the latter power will promptly inter
fere if Ecuador is attacked. Chili is the
most powerful of all the South
American republics. Eiglit years ago
she calmly defied the United States,
and ber ranking officer, Don Patricio
Lynch informed tho American
admiral commanding the South
American station, that if auy diffi
culty occurred between the two na
tions he meant tosail for San Fran
cisco, and levy indemnity on that
city, or shell the place out of exist
ence. This he could easily have done

very well, and casually asked if ho could

take it without knowing it. He said "of

converse till sho said: "O, Henry, it is

have a glass of soda before you go?"
Julia didn't mind, and after the last bit

Henry, with a smirk of trimuph. "Oh,
