people have a legal claim for com
pensation for their slaves enlisted
into the government service dur
ing the war.
Consideuaulk fun is being
made of Senator .Tone?, of Florida,
because he is in love. But some
of his brother senators are into
worse things thai! that the Ohio
Paj-ne for instance.
The .extent of land open to
homestead entries in the United
States is now about '100,000,000
acres, a part of which, however, is
unavailable for want oE sufficient
rainfall or water irrigation.
Another outrage on an unof
fending Chinaman has been re
ported from Gilroy, Cal. Ah Gin
had 1ih skull crushed and his head
"nearly chopped off by a cleaver in
the hands of a man who desired
$300 belonging to the unfortunate
exile. The criminal was Ah Gin's
partner, Ah Sin.
Tin: house committee on for
eign affairs appear opposed to any
legislation looking toward the ab
rogation of the present one-sided
treaty with China. But sooner or
later that treaty must be abro
gated, and the sooner it is done
the better it will be for the per
manent peace of society on this
Tin: fjist homestead bill was
presented to congress by Andrew
Johnson of Tennessee. He pushed
it to u passage in the thirty-sixth
congress, and it was vetoed by
Buchanan. Andy kept at it, how
ever, and it passed agaiu in 18C2,
a few days after he left the senate
to become military governor of
Kemtcic has 14,000 square
miles of coal fields. Pennsylvania,
12,030 miles; Great Britain, entire,
21,S39 miles, and England, alone,
0,030 miles. The wealth of Penn
sylvania is largely due to the de
velopment of the coal in the state,
and the importance of England in
the industrial world is due to a
Tin: house va's and means
committee has reported a resolu
tion that after 100,000,000 of
coin is reserved in the United
States treasury for redemption,
according to law, $10,000,000 a
month shall be paid on the public
debt. This will push the silver
now piled up in the government
vaults into circulation.
Trade existed long before gov
ernment. Individuals look after
that. Government can impede
tratle or divert it, but cannot pro
mote it better than b' leaving it
alone. The merchants of the
country know better when and
wheie to trade thanHhe la vi vers
and politicians of congrcs-s can
tell. All the latter have to do
with respect to trade is to take
their hands off it.
The general detailed map of
the United States, proposed and
already begun by the g- !ogical
survey, will be upon the cale of
about four miles to the inch, with
contour lines for every twenty-five
to 200 feet, according to th nat
ure of tin topography. It i pro
posed to issue this map in atlas
sheets, each composed of one de
gree of latitude by one of longi
tude, bounded by parallels and
The population of London now
exceeds every other city, ancient
or modern, m the world. New
York and all its adjacent cities
combined are not equal to two
thirds of it. Scotland, Switzer
land, and the Australian colonies
each contains fewer souls, while
Norway, Servia, Greece, and Den
mark, have scarcely half so many.
Yet at the beginning of 'the pres
ent century the population of all
London did not reach 1,000,000.
Judge Taylok rendered a de
cision in the liquor case yesterday
which places the matter before the
supreme court at the earliest pos
sible moment. In this he did
what he could to facilitate
a imal decision. It was mu
tually understood by counsel for
plaintiff and defendant that the
judgment should be so entered to
prevent delay, and was pro forma.
indicating a waiving for the pur
poses of this case of any judgment
which might under other circum
stances be declared.
A hill has been recently intro
duced in the senate by a western
senator to increase the postage on
fourth-class matter from 10 to 32
cents per pound. This, if passed
would make the merchandise rate
as high as that on first-class mat
ter. In Canada the charge for
this service is at the rate of-i cents
per pound In England G cents
per pound is charged, The large
amount of trade carried on through
the mails would be seriously con
tracted, and many lines of trade
"would be debarred altogether
from using the mails should the
measure be adopted. The charges
on fourth-class matter arc really
excessive, and instead of being in
creased the rates should be re
duced. The express companies
alone would be benefited bv the
the proposed increase in rates.
0e of the heaviest law suits in
the history of Minnesota has been
decided in the United States cir
cuit court. It was the case of the
Northern Pacific road against the
Manitoba, and $4,000,000 was in
volved upon various land grants
of Congress to aid in the construc
tion of railroads. The two roads
cross each other near Glyndon,
Minn., and each claimed posses
sion of ."00,000 acres of land near
that point. The principal contro
versy was as to which grant was
made first. It was known that
plaintiffs secured their privileges
under an act of congress of 1SG-L
Delendants, however, claim to
have been granted the land under
an act of 1S57. Under succeeding
acts, however, defendants were
permitted to change the line of
road, in consideration of which
they were to relinquish land do
nated to them under the original
barter, and in lieu of which they
fjceived land along the new route.
Judge Brewer decided in favor of
the Northern Pacific.
