; .Presidexi' Cleveland has sent
$1,000 to New York to help elect
Hill. The New York mugwumps
say that it is necessary to beat
Hill that Cleveland thall be en
dorsed. The publication of the Ameri
can Sentiment will begin in Port
land next Tuesday. It will be a
four-column evening folio. It will
be an anti-Chinese paper and will
be published "in the interest of
mechanics and workinmen."
The classical gentlemen who ed
it the Oretoulan and , Standard are
haying a high toned discussion re
garding the correctness of each
other's Latin. The common herd
are barred out. However that is
better than calling each other liars
in a deep bass voice.
A srwiAi. from Ottawa says
that the cabinet has decided to
postpone Kiel's execution until
November 11. French Canadi
ans still express confidence that
Kiel will not be hanged. They

The general land office has just
issued a correct list of the various
United States land offices in the
different states and territories.
There have been but two changes
of location since January 1st last,
viz.: In Dakota tenitory, the of

at Devil's Lake, and in "Washing

been changed to North Yakima.
Mi:. Fitzhugii Lee, Demo
cratic candidate for governor in
Virginia, made a great speech at
Winchester the other day, in
which he thanked God that the
war was over and that its hideous
animosities were forever buried.
If Mr. Lee is so tickled over the
burial of war issues why does he

Sevextv-five Chinese cigar
makers in the employ of Kcenigs

Francisco, struck last Friday morn
ing because the proprietors re
fused to discharge fiftv-eight
whites. The hitter had been em

A ni'mp.eu of iliu'vhig Tret' In
dians have crusM-d i!i l.ms from
the dominion into iht United
States. The secretary oi state, in
reply to a request that they be
sent back, says, that these Indians
cannot be arrested except upon
extradition of the British author
ities, and that this government
should ndt countenance any kid
napping of Indians. The interior
department is at a loss to know
how the dangerous refugees can
be removed under the circum
stances. "We read of Aladdin and his
wonderful lamp; of the roc and
other Arabian night fables, and
smile at the ingenuity displayed
by those ancient romancers. But
science in the ninteenth century
eclipses in actual facts the re
corded fables of Che ancient ma
gicians. Where in the pleasing
pages of old tales can be found a
more marvelous story than the
plain record of the late work at
Hell Gate in New York, when the
pressure of a child's finger on a
little button tore to pieces nine
acres of rocks, rent four miles of
tunnels, and set into dynamic ac
tivity 300,000 pounds of explo
sives! The feat is unequalled in,
the wildest tales of masric.
The recent sale of the North
ern Pacific lands comprises several
townships in northwestern Minne
sota, amounting in all to about
113,000 acres. It is estimated
that $7 per acre will be netted, or
a total of $791,000. The purchase
monej' is part cash, and the re
mainder, 500,000, is in preferred
stock. This will retire from cir
culation forever over 50,000 shares
of that stock. The purchasers are
a number of capitalists, headed by
Charles Watrous, formerly of Cal
ifornia. The sale is supposed to
haye been brought about by Sena
tor Sabin, of Minnesota, who is a
member of the purchasing syndi
cate. A great body of the land is
heavily timbered. It is the in
tention ol the owners to begin the
manufacture of lumber on a large
scale at once. Watrous has been
in the lumber business several
years, and was once well known
in political life in California.

One da' last week, says the
Afcicw, persons crossing I-ondon
bridge were somewat startled to
see a small boat suddenby col
lapse, whereby five or six persons,
including a lady, a clergyman and
some officers were thrown into the
water. They ought, by all " the
laws of analogy, to have been
struggling in that element, but
they were not. On the contrarj',
they appeared perfectly at their
ease, and making no movement,
rested calmly with their heads
above the surface. The explana
tion of the phenomenon was that
the clothes worn by these people
were made of a fabric in which
threads of cork were interwoven
with other material. Mr. Jackson,
the inventor, is to be congrat
ulated on the complete success of
his ingenious device. Timid sea
travelers .can now equip them
selves in garments which, while
undistinguishable from those of
ordinary mortals, will make death
by drowning an utter impossi
bility. NEW TO-DAY.
