They had no baggage and possessed
only 35 cents between them; yet they
never entered any house or asked for
food or assistance from any one. Their

woods. They stole or begged rides on

Sackamesto. Feb. 1G. -Advices re

to fear there will be another struggle
with snow at the scene of the recent
blockade in the Cascade cut on the
Central Pacific The party of seventy
Sacramento excursionists who left here
last night for the Truckee and who are
now "snowed in" at Cascade had to
have food carried to them from Sum

Nellie Bly's trip is entitled to go on
record its the most rapid journey which
has ever been made in a circuit of the
world, and the enterprising journal
and the self-reliant girl are entitled to
praise for the achievement. But if the
question to be solved was what is the
shortest space of time in which, by the
route taken, the journey could be
made, supposing that trains and
steamships were arranged so as to
carry the traveler at ordinary speed,
without loss of time at connecting
points, it can easily be shown that
the journey could be accomplished in
less than sixty days. The little t raveler
who has just finished the round in seventy-two
and one-fourth days lost over
thirteen days by waiting for connec
tions namely, one in London, .two in
Ceylon, live in Hong Kong and five
at Yokohama, and also lost at least
one day by unusual delay in crossing
the Pacific ocean. She also traveled
213 miles more than would ordinarily
be necessary between San Francisco
and Chicago, on account of a detour
caused by ;i snow blockade, and her
route from Chicago to New York
was about forty miles longer than
the shortest She traveled at the
speed of the ordinary trams and
steamship schedule except in the run
from San Francisco to Chicago, which
was made in eleven hours less than
the fastest regular run by the shortest
route. But even allowing for this
special gain, it appears that the
arouud-the-world trip can be made in
less than sixty days, assuming only
that all connections between trains
and steamers are closely made, al
though the rate of speed is only that
of the present schedules for each part
of the journey.
"In the Andover Review for Janu
ary," says the New York World, "Mr.
Frederick F. Page makes a very con
clusive answer to the suggestion of an
"endowment for newspapers, so that
they may have the character and pos
sess the means to secure as editors
men who will make ideally pure,
wholesome and able newspapers."
To this fanciful and quite absurd
suggestion the writer very aptly says
that "a paper may be endowed, bnt to
what advantage if the public do not
join in the partnership?' And he adds
the wise observation that "the public
can always make a newspaper success
ful; some excellent editors have never
This is precisely what has happened
in the case of the World. It had un
der its former management as able
and scholarly editors as there were in
the country--"ideal" editors in the
superficial judgment of self-appoiuted
critics and censors of the press. But
they do not bring the public into
partnership with them. As Mr. Page
ebserves: "Endowed virtue in
the form of a newspaper can be forced
upon an un regenerate public the day
that an unwilling horse can be made
to drink when led to water."
"The best endowment of a great
newspaper consists in brains, to know
what to do; character, to choose to do
the right things; and courage, to daro
to do them.

Washington, Feb. 17. In the sen
ale, Dawes presented over 240 peti
tions from M-issaclmsetts, stating that
more than 100,000.000 worth of in
toxicating liquors were annually ex
ported from the United Stales to
Africa, which is demoralizing to Africa
and detrimental to all legitimate
commerce with that people, and pray
ing that, under that section of ihe con
stitution which authorizes congress to
regulate commerce with foreign na
tions, this sort of thing be slopied.
Tt was referred to committee on edu
cation and labor. Chandler present
ed petitions from Mississippi com
plaining of the suppression of
the Bepublican vote of that slate
and representing that the legis
lature of Mississippi recently enacted
a law for ihe establishing of a new
constitution for the stale on the 13th
of August 1890. The same is not to
be submitted to the people for rati
fication. Thus it was the avowed pur
pose or the Democrats to employ
fraudulent methods to deprive many
intelligent citizens of the franchise.
It was referred lo the committee on
privileges and elections.
Frye, from the select committee on
public railroads, reported back ad
versely two Pacific railroad funding
bills, referred to it. and in lieu of
them, reported the origiual bill on the
subject with two reports, one of which
touches upon the Union Pacific's in
debtedness and the other upon the
Central Pacific's indebtedness.
The latter report, he declared, "had
been drafted by the senator from
Maine." He explained that the rea
son why the bills were reported back
adversely was that the committee had
finally succeeded to its own satisfac
tion in consolidating them into one.
The bill which was presented con
tained the terms of adjustment with
both companies. The Union Pacific
and Central Pacific reports were
unanimously adopted by the commit
tee. The bill, so far as the Union Pa
cific was concerned, had also been
DEMOCRATIC ACTION' ON' NEW ItULES.
After the leading of the journal in
the house. Carlisle arose and said that
since the 29lh of January his side of
the house had been protesting every
morning against the approval of the
journal on the ground that it con
tained an entry made by the direction
or the speaker, showing names
of certain members as present
but not voting. Last Friday the
house adopted a code or rules provid
ing for such practice.
Against this the Democrats pro
tested and would protest it as uncon
stitutional, but this was a question
which could not be divided in the
Iioupo and whenever proper case.-,
arose it would go to pome other form.
It was the purpose of his sid" to see
that this occasion should be undo in
such shape as would permit it to br
finally and decisively passed upon.
Therefore he now saw no reason why
the journal form, oT which the house
had the right to prescribcshould not be
approved. This was done. Blair
presented petitions signed by :i;,OJ0
members of the G. A. It. in favor of
pensions to army nurses; and petitions
signed by over ll,0i)0,(HK) persons in
favor or the educational bill. Among
other petitions presented were several
for the per diem pension bill and for
bounty to soldiers of the regular army
who served in the war of the rebellion.

finally to let Parnell and his colleagues
take the initiate. It was proposed to
move tlie expulsion of members of the
house of commons whom Ihe commis

The liberals, on the other hand,
have decided to assume the offensive
and will move a vote of censure when
