Tun Literary World o Boston
pays its compliments to t!iclew
York Nation in this neat style: 'The
New York Nation has reached its
twentieth birthday. When it comes
fully of age, we trust it will add to
its knowledge candor, and to its
strength generosity, and to its virtue
The Illinois Slate Journal says
that public improvements in hard
times aro "a kind of socialism that
will bear investigation,' and agrees
that the idea should bo widely con
sidered. Hard times of late years,
have come to mean that one class gets
all the money and locks it up. Hard
times used to mean that every one
The Oreyonian characterizes the
work of the Walla Walla in sluicing
at St Helens bar as "a stupendous
achievement," and looks upon it as
"a practical demonstration that a
very small expenditure of money will
open and keep open the rivers from
Portland to the sea." It says "ex
penditure of $3,000 to 810,000 in Ir.
Gates' way will be ample, in any cir
cumstances, to keep open a deep ship
channel from Portland to Iho sea."
The Oreyonian contrasts the work
done by the Walla Walla and the
attendant expense, with that of gov
eminent operations, greatly to the
advantage of tho former.
An article in last Sunday's Oreyo
nian on hydraulic mining argues
that mining on the Snake annually
sends a large amount of debris into
the Columbia that will eventually in
terfere with commerce. The article
says among other things that "if tho
Columbia shoals as much in the next
Ave years as in the past five, our sea
traflic will go to Astoria.' The arti
cle goes on to say that congressional
legislation should be invoked to stop
hydraulic mining in Idaho, Montana
and Washington, and the state legis
lature petitioned to do the same
thing in this state. The tenor of the
argument is to the effect that what
has happeued to the Sacramento may
happen to the Columbia.
The New York Times of the oth
says: "Indications point to a many-
sided light at the annual election of
the Northern Pacific railroad com
pany this month. It is unlikely, how
ever, that any attempt will be made to
displace President Harris. The fight
will be made to gain a hold in the
directory. The different faciions are
desirous of securing sufficient influ
ence in the board, either to have cer
tain things done or to prevent certain
things from being done. President
Smith, of the O. 11. k N. company, it is
stated, has proxies on S0,000 shares of
Northern Pacific stock. Smith's
friends say he has no ambition to be
president of the Northern Pacific.
Ho simply desires to prevent the con
struction of the Cascades branch,
which he claims would be a useless
and expensive branch of the O. li &
The coal mine riots at Bock Springs,
Wyoming, last week wherein several
Chinese were killed, may, it is
thought, assume international im
portance. Under article 111 of the
Angell, Swift and Westcott treaty the
United States guarantees to Chinese
in tho various territories the same
protection and jighls that citizens of
the most favored nations have. It is
held by legal attaches of the Chinese
legation that even if the leaders of
the mob in Wyoming are arrested
and punished the Chinese govern
ment will put in a claim for indemni
fication, and that the break is liable
to cost the United Stales many thous
ands of dollars. It is hardly proba
ble that the general government can
make the territory of Wyoming pay
damages. The amounts likely to be
claimed would more than bankrupt
Wyoming. Even it it is decided that
tho United States must pay the bill
the matter will have to come to con
gress for an appropriation, and it will
be the first case of the kind that has
come nuder the treaty, and to that
extent, outside of the monetary con
sideration, is of great interest
those who look at it from any nation
u point of view.
The learned advocates and attor
neys of the bar association, says the
Current, will read able and exhaust
ive treatises on tho majesty of law
and the desirability of justice for all,
but it is safe to say they will not ask
that a single redundant word shall
be plucked from the documentary
languago that now scandalizes Amer
ican legal practice. If a man say
"funeral obsequies," a thousand ed
itors hoot at him. If he "covenant,
grant, promise and agree," or if he
have "granted, bargained, sold, re
leased, and confirmed, and by these
presents do grant, bargain, sell, re
lease, and confirm" then that man
becomes "ripe," "brilliant," and "dis
tinguished." Years ago a treasurer
of Chicago had a leak in his accounts.
A considerable amount of the city's
money escaped, the sum being at least
a million dollars. The lawyers got
up an indictment as long as a serpent
of the warmest clime. There were
few possible ways of stealing that
were not mentioned over and over in
every count of that accusation. But
when the time for trial came, tho in
dictment was found to contain a
"flaw," and there was not ouough
money on hand to warrant the erec
tion of a second structure of tho
kind. The bondsmen were then pro
ceeded against, but their legal aslon-
ishmeut was great It was judicially
determined that it was not their
place to refund what the city could
not even allege had been stolen.
Petty thieves often elude ihc police
in cities by running across-lots and
hiding in the weeds. Great thieves
find the rank, nnweeded garden of
the law equally effective in saving
them from tho penitentiary.
The French juries arc selected with
more care than are those of America.
A list of those qualified to serve is
first prepared by a committee which
meets in each subdivision of the
wards of the French cities. The Iwi
is made from tho voters' register. By
law French citizens upwards of 30
years of age and in full enjoyment of
all civil rights are the only ones
qualified. Public officials who have
been dismissed from ofiscf, bank
rupts, persons whose property ib held
by trnstces, those unable to write tho
French language, and servants or
wages, senators, deputies, judges,
priests and public school teachers are
disqualified. The list prepared by
the partial ward committee must be
submitted for approval to the com
mittee of the entire ward, which se
lects the number to serve as jurors for
tho ensuing year. The Paris court of
assizes is supplied with a list of ju
rors sufficient to servo for a year.
On the first Monday of each mouth
the president judge of the court
draws by lot the names of thirty-six
who are to serve the next term. Four
names extra are drawn as supple
mentary jurors. The drawing is
done in court and the reasons for
exemption arc considered at once.
In some criminal cases the selection
of jurors is not made in open court,
but in the presence of the prosecuting
attorney and tho attorney for the
accused. No questions are asked as
to whether they have expressed or
formed an opinion of the prisoner's
guilt or innocence. When the jury
retires a forem.n, or "president," 13
elected and a verdict decided upon
by a majority vote. The jury may
accompany tho verdict by the find
ing of extenuating circumstances,
which in ordinary cases precludes the
court from giving tho prisoner the
full measure of puuLshmont In
murder cases the court is thereby
prevented from inflicting the death
