TUESDAY ..AUGUST 11. 1885
Each mau who took up arms for
the suppression of the recent rebel
lion in Canada is to have 320 acres of
land in Manitoba.
Lord PaiiMEKstox once remarked
that the drawbacks and objections to
war are somewhat mitigated by the
fact that it teaches geography to per
sons who otherwise would never
A profound sensation has b eon ex
cited in Berlin and Vienna by the ap
pearance in a well-known German
newspaper of what purports to be "a
true account of the death of .Prince
Frederick Charles."' The journal as
serts in plain terms that the Red
Prince did not die of appoplexy, but
that he was shot dead by his wife.
Germany deals with strikes and
riots in a summary way. It "investi
gates" the circumstances, then de
clares the locality of the strike or
riot in "a stale of siege." That
places it under martial law, when the
military takes command. The strike
or riot is then brought to a sudden
closo. unless the ammunition gives
The engineering difficulties in
building the Canada Pacific Railroad
are greater than any of those encoun
tered in any of the present transcon
tinental lines, because the available
passes in the Rocky mountains are
more broken and rugged. A choice

now deemed a mistake, and survey

The putting of the bark J.scbcl in
the tea trade by the Northern Pacific
Company, cays the Seattle Posl-In-
telUgcnw, had the effect of reducing
transportation rates to eastern ports
one-half. The old rale was 3 cents a
pound to New York. The- Isabel, as
the result of competition, cot to lf
cents, and at that her cargo was se
cured. The Gorman ship Htirmoiila
was one of the vessels that was jut
by the Californiaus against her, and
she is now at San Francisco with a
cargo of 2,182,00a pounds brought at
the same rate. The rate to San
Francisco heretofore has been 2
cents a pound. Should shipments
by the Northern Pacific Company
continue rales will undoubtedly take
a further fall.
Tnn new Michigan libel law is in
dicative of progress in the right di
rection. The plaintiff can only
recover "actual damages" from a
newspaper, and even then $5,000 is
the limit. Tho term "actual dam
ages" is construed to include all dam
ages the plaintiff may show he has
suffered as to his property, business,
trade, profession or occupation. This
is getting the libel business down to
a fine and reasonable point The law
excludes vindictive damages and this
is right. It is just to newspapers,
and to those who conceive that they
Lave been damaged by any publica
tion. The plaintiff must provo actu
al damages, and this will largely slop
the favorate amusement of certain
attorneys who make a business of in
spiring litigation of this kind.
Saturday's Oregonian says that '-it
is now impossible for loaded ships to
pass St Helen's." That is to say
that even the comparatively light
draught vessels that arc compelled to
go to Portland at increased insurance
and freightage cannot have anything
like a cargo. Tho Oregonian savs
that the O. R. & N. Co. estimates that
it will cost SS,000 to sluice out the
channels, and that if Portland will
furnish one half the company will
furnish the other half. The Oregon
ian thinks that is "generous." Tho
company that charges $L2o for what
only costs 37j cents can well afford
to be "generous" in getting Portland
to donate $4,000 to enable them to
do more business of such profitable
It has come to light, says the
Standard, that Chas. P. Wright, one
of the directors of the Northern Pa
cific, is opposed to the lease of the O.
R. & N. property. Ho has sent out a
confidential letter to a number of
stockholders in his company, asking
for proxies to vote at the next meet
mg of the company to bo held in
New Tork in September. A St. Paul
merchant having received one of the
letters was considerably surprised
thereat, and showed it to Mr. Oakes
That gentleman said he did not think
it would amount to much, as the
customary rule with all railroad
boards is to specifically nominate per
sons who shall receive aud vote prox
ies. Mr. Wright's deviation from the
rule has made some stir in railroad
circles and tliCLSolution of the matter
is that Mr. "Wright is opposed to the
leasing of the O. R. fc N. company's
lines by the Northern and Union Pa
cifies, although ho does not mention
the latter in connection with the mat-
tor. The essence of the letter
is contained in the following extract:
"The present terms talked of are 5
per cent, for three years and three
months and G percent thereafter; and
the amount to bo paid on the stock
and bonds of tho Oregon Railway and
Navigation company will take preced
ence of not only the common, but al
so the preferred stock, thus making
both common and preferred stock
secondary to the payment of the in
terest on the Oregon Railway and
Navigation company's stock and
bonds. Due caution will be taken in
the premises. Having a large interest
myself, I propose to give the matter
my special attention at tho proper
time, and will endeaver to take such
cclion as will benefit the interest of
the Northern Pacific railroad com
pany." NEW TO-DAY.
