The opium law sets forth that a
physician prescribing opinm to a pa

each prescription, when and to whom

is contrary to all accepted tenets of
medical ethics for a physician to di
vulge professional secrets, it is not
improbable that a test case will be
made as to the ability of a statute to
compel a medical attendant to tell on
demand who he prescribed opium to
and for what complaint.

THE DYING GOVERNOR.
San Francisco, Aug. 2-L Governor
Bartlett rested easy during the night,
several times he had fallen asleep;
his mind is perfectly clear; at differ
ent times he has conversed easy al
though his voice is thick, as it has
been all day. and he had difficuly in
using it. Dr. Perry and Mrs.
Dr. Buckel are still with
him. Early last evening he engaged
in giving directions as to affairs of
state and private matters, being fully
aware of the imminence of death.
Columbus Bartlett, a brother of the
governor, remained up all night. He
said the kidney complaint with
which ho had been affected so long
has been expected to result fatally,
but his brother bore up cheerfully,
although he knew death was ap
proaching. "He may die in twenty
minutes or he may live a week," con
cluded Mr. Bartlett
A reduction in rates.
San Francisco, Aug. 24. The
Southern Pacific company, in defer
ence to a suggestion of the state rail
road commissioner, has decided to
reduce the four cent per mile late to
three cents and the five cent rate to
four, and the six cent rate to five, on
all lines controlled by the Central or
Southern Pacific, This will reduce
the rate from San Francisco to Los
Angeles from $21.70 to $15; the rates
to Fresno will be reduced from S7.G0
to $3.90. It is expected that the re
duction will take place on Septem

The total amount of bonds on which
application for tho payment of ad
vance interest has been made is a
little over $01,000,000. This is a
much smaller offering than was ex
pected, and secretary Fairchild thinks
it is a sign of financial ease through
out tho country. The secretar' of
fered to advance six mouth's intercut
on the entire bonded debt, including
the bonds, of the Pacihc railroads,
with a rebate at tho rate of 2 per
cent, per annum. The applications
received are from the holders of reg
istered bonds. There are out
standing in 4 and 4 per cents,
nearly S9SS.000.000, of which
only $158,000,000 are coupon. The
amount of advance interest included
in the secretary's offer is over S22,
000.000. yet the sum applied for is
less than S3.000.000.
The secretary's offer stands until
January 1 next, but it is considered
doubtful whether individual holders
will ask for tho advance interest with
a rebate. Three mouths' interest on
the 4s will bo due September 1.
On October 1 the quarterly interest
will bo payable on the 4s. Activity
in business may induce applications
for an advance on the December and
January interest, as money could
thus be obtained from the treasury at
a very small discount.

Exploited "When lurked liy the Mule.
A remarkable case of dynamite ex
plosion is reported by Henry Simp
son, a resident of the Point Simp
son has been using dynamite for the
purpose of blowing several old stumps
out of the ground, and carelessly left
the dangerous compound lying by the
side of a stump on which he intended
to begin operations. Tho dynamite
was mixed with sawdnst and gave au
exceedingly pleasaut odor, which at
tracted the attention of two of Simp
son's hogs, which soon had converted
themselves iuto gigantic cartridges.
The stuff, when eaten, creates a pecu
liar sensation, which annoyed the
hog to such au extent that it en
tered Simpson's stables and began
rnbbiug its side against a post at tho
month of a mule's stall. The mule
remaiued passive for but a few mo
ments, when it gavo the hog a terrific
kick in the side. A tremendous ex
plosion followed, aud after the clear
ing away of the smoke aud dust, tho
hog was to be found only iu detach
ments, while an enormous aperture
marked tho spot where it had stood.
The mule had received a tremendous
shock, but was still intact. The other
hog is now running at largo, greatly
to the terror of the entire neighbor
hood. Ifrart Disease!!:
