The O. R. & N. company's
gross earnings for September were
S'578,000, an increase over the
same month last year of 190,000.
According to the London Lan
cet the recent visit to America of
Dr. Keith, who came to perform a
surgical operation, is the first in
stance since the declaration
of independence of an American
having summoned medical aid
from the old country.
New York and Philadelphia are
worrying over "the alarming prac
tices of the degrading Chinese."
New York and Philadelphia pooh
poohed at our "silly Pacific coast
prejudices" a few years ago, and
now having learned by experience
they talk worse about it than any
of the "silly Pacific coast people."
The more they get of the Mongo
lian the less they'll like him.
During Grant's last illness the
discusssion went on as to "what
creed he professed. Now the
question is being argued whether
he was a Democrat or a Repub
lican. Of Chas. James Fox it
was cynically said, "He, born for
the universe, uarrowed his mind,
and to party gave up what was
meant for mankind." This could
never be said of Grant. Whether
Republican or Democrat, he was
first of all an American, a lover of
his country and a defender of the
Type writers, it is said, are be
ing extensively used by anony
mous letter writers, frauds, etc.,
who are extremely anxious to dis
guise their hand writings, and the
officers and courts are every day
experiencing more trouble than
ever before in the detection of
frauds who now use a type writer
instead as formerly, of writing au
tograph letters. The invention
opens a new field for adventurers,
blackmailers, impostors and frauds.
The purple ink used is also fugi
tive and speedily disappears.
There is said to be a scheme
afoot in the Highlands of Scotland
to transport a large number of the
crofters to the Hawaiian Islands,
to take the place of coolies on the
sugar plantations. The crofters are
not the right sort of men for such
labor. They are sturdy, independ
ent yeomen, who would make
their way in the United States
if they but had the means to get
here. There is plenty of room in
the United States for men like the
crofters. There should be room
for them in any country, but land
monopoly in Scotland has made it
impossible for these honest, indus
trious people to make a living.
Two-thirds of the country is
owned by 330 men.
The London liberals have dug
a mine to be exploded under the
tories, in pursuance of agitation
on behalf of overworked railway
servants. The victim of the com
ing attack is the Right Hon. Will
iam Henry Smith, secretary of war
in the present tory government,
who was immortalized some years
ago as Sir Joseph of Gilbert and
Sullivan's "Pinafore." Smith is
lessee and proprietor of all the
book stalls in all the railway sta
tions throughout Great Britain.
Be has an absolute monopoly of
this business and has become im
mensely rich by means of it, his
fortune being estimated to be
millions of pounds. It has just
become known that he compels
boys in his employ, some of whom
arc only fourteen years old, to
work from 5 a. m. to 10 r. jr. for
1.75 a week. Liberal commit
tees propose to give widespread
publicity to these facts, and the
exposure is sure to create a storm
The rapid growth of the
Knights of Labor in the United
States and Canada is brought
prominently into notice by pub
lished reports of the general as-
sembly, now convening at Hamil
ton, Ont., and by the recent suc
cess of the Knights in electing the
mayor of Newark, Conn., against
formidable opposition. The Can
ada convention was opened "with
an address from General Master
Workman Powderly, in which he
claimed 4,000 assemblies of
Knights, embracing 200,000 mem.
bers, nearly all the growth of the
past seven years. He said that in
1878 the order was unknown to
the world, and belonged to a few.
To-day it is known and respected
everywhere, and belongs to every
man and woman who toils for a
livelihood, and every slave of the
earth who irks for freedom from
the tyranny of aggregated capital.
The use of dynamite and violence
was denounced, the holding of
public lands by aliens deprecated
as wrong, the introduction of
cheap foreign labor stigmatized as
un-American and unpatriotic, and
should be resisted.
If the JSnsayo Medico of Ca
racas, a journal unearthed by the
Lancet, may be believed, the
seeming impossibility of a tailed
man need no longer prove a stum
bling block to the faith of would
be evolutionists. In tho last issue
to hand of this print the following
paragraph eccurs: "There has
just been an interesting discovery
in Paraguay of a tribe of Indians
furnished with tails. One day a
number of workmen belonging to
Tacura Tayu were engaged in
cutting grass, when their mules
were attacked by Guayacugan In
dians and some of them killed.
The workmen pursued them and
succeeded in capturing a little boT
eight years of age. He was taken
to Senor Francisco Golrochoe at
Posedas, and it was then discov
ered that he had a tail ten inches
long. The boy says that he has
a brother who has a tail as long as
his own, and that all the tribe
have tails." There are clearly no
half measures about these tails,
and if boys of eight have them ten
inches long there is no saying
what may be the length of the
tail of a full grown man." It
would have added to the interest
of this information if we had been
further told how the tails are
worn whether proudly aloft like
that of a collie or in the downcast
manner of a cow.
