On a charge of criminal libel at Port
land George H. Moffett, editor of the
Telegram, has been acquitted. The al
leged libel consisted in an article pub
lished prior to the city election last June,
charging a numb r of persons with levy
ing assessments on gambling homes and
the inmates of the houses of ill repute
to be used in carrying the election lor
the Republican ticket. Judge Shatturk
instructed the jury that the levying of
of assessments to be used in a political
campaign was not a crime, and that,
therefore, no libel had been committed.

The new Nicaragua canal bill reported
by Sonator Sherman is drawn on sub
stantially the same lines as the bill re
ported from the committee to the last
Congress, including as it doe9 the prop
osition to guarantee the bonds of the
company to the extent of $100,000,000 to
aid in the construction of the canal.
The new bill, however, contains some
additions, which increase the obligations
of the company as well as the security
of the government. For instance, the
real and personal propeity and the fran
chises of the company are included in
the liabilities. It is provided that all
stock heretofore eub?cribed for or issued
shall be called in and canceled ; all bonds
issued redeemed and canceled, and all
outstanding obligations satisfied before
the art takes effect. The date is changed
to make the bonds issue in January, 1893,
and mature in liiu3; but they are aiso
made redeemal 1 at the pleasure of the
United States after 1913. The section
requiring the company to execute a mort
gage to the United States as security for
the guarantee is amended by the addi
tion of a clause requiring the mortgage
to contain a provision for a sinking fund
for the payment of the bonds at matu
rity. If the company defaults in the
pavnient of interest or other respects
before the canal is put in operation, the
right of foreclosure shall at once attach

A .Mammoth Trra from California to B
California is to be honored by having a
lection ot one) of her famous big trees uiada
a prominent feature In the Government
building at the Columbian exhibition at
Chicago. The project, the accomplishment
lit which Is fully assured, is a unique one.
Tin: section of the tree will be twenty-three
feet in diameter and thirty feet long. This
will be divided into three parts, and these
will be placed in their natural position,
Hie above the other, and so arranged as to
form something like a two story honse.
The criiitruet for the tree was made by H.
A. Taylor, of the department of the in
terior, with the King's River Lumber com
pany in the sprint of this year, and the
company j now ltJ worf getting it out in
their forest of sequoia KHjantea in the
Converse basin on King's river in Fresno
The contract called for a tree 20 feet fl
Inches in diameter, but the tree actually
found will be three feet greater in diameter.
There are of course larger trees in th
forest, but the requirement was that this
fcection should be perfect in all respects,
cylindrical, straiht and without a burn
in the bark, and this was the largest found
to fill alt these conditions. The tree select
ed, says the San Francisco Chronicle, ia
one known as the "General Noble." It
measures thirty-eight feet in diameter near
the ground, but as the object was to have
the section of the same diameter at both
ends, as nearly as possible, a piece is being
taken out of the tree at some distance from
the ground. To do this and to preserve
the section from harm by falling, as well
as to meet other requirements, has proved
to be a work of considerable magnitude;.
The idcta is not to send a solid section, bnt.
rather, the rim of the tree hollowed out
and cut into segments of suitable size, and
all to be numbered so that they can be
erected at Chicago so as to look from the
exterior like the solid section of a sequoia
thirty feet in height. The three parts into
which the section is being cut consist of
two parts of fourteen feet each, to be hol
lowed out, and one two feet thick, which
will serve as a floor between the two stories,
as it were.
The work of cutting, lowering and box
ing the segments is Wing pushed forward
as rapidly as possible, and it is expected
that the tree will all be shipped by the end
of October. To get the tree to a point
where wagons can reach it required the
building of a road two miles long. The en
tire exhibit, including the work, will cost
the government several thousand dollars.
The tree when erected at Chicago will stand
directly under the izreat dome of the Gov
ernment building.
Religious Differences.
In the greater concerns of life there
are wonderful illustrations of the con
flicts of opinions. There are something
over 1,200,000,000 of human beings in
the world. Among these are six va
rieties of religious belief; three of these
are said by one class td be false, and by
others three are said to he the true re
ligion. And yet every religionist, every
sectarian claims that he and she alone
are right. What our Chinese neighbors
say is "true" we say is "false." We call
them "heathens" they class us as "out
side barbarians."
What we English; speaking people
think is the right and the true religion
is in a startling minority in human be
lief or religious creed for there are
only some 330,000,000 Christians in all
the world. There are some 6.003,000
Jews, and they have clung with singular
persistency in all ages to their religious
belief; it is seldom a Jew renounces his
faith; it is more seldom that a Chris
tian embraces Judaism. There are
more than 400,000,000 people who are
pagans and Mohammedans. Detroit
