The first grain fleet of the season has cleared from Chicago with 11,000,(XH) bushels. Notwithstanding the severe winter, navigation has opened earlier than usual. The wonderful influence of the sun on earth is shown by the fact that during less than three minutes while the last eclipse was total the temperature fell three degrees.

The Executive Committee of the local directory of the World's Fair held a meeting aty which resolutions were adopted which practically mean a flat renunciation of Congressional control. The joint committee made a lengthy reiwirt on the recent act of Congress in structing the Secretary of the Treasury to w ithhold enough of "tin: Columbia haff dollars to secure the payment of $570, KH0 for awards, which was amply dis cussed. The report Kays the committee would regard it us a direct and inexcus able violation of the pledges and coven ants with the bondholders to enter into the formal undertakings w hich the act of Congress require. The requirement of this act, says the committee, is a violation of the" act of August 5,1802, accepted by the directors. Acting Commissioner of Pensions Murphy has transferred about lifty clerks, who were heretofore employed on "statistical work," but which, so'far as he could see, are of no value to the office, to current work in order to facilitate in bringing up the business to date. Murphy is decidedly of the opinion that among the 058,0(10 pensioners on the rolls of the bureau there are many fradu lent cases, and with a view of purging the list of such as can be reached he has issued an order to the special examiners in the field, directing them to use all diligence in searching out such cases as require the attention of the bureau. Friends of ex-liepresentative Blount, now on a special mission to Honolulu, say there are several reasons why he will not be chosen as Minister Stevens' successor. Notwithstanding that his actions have ticca approved hy the ad ministration, the President is "not blind to the fact that certain things he has done, notably the hauling down of the tlag, have been received in this country with disfavor. The president realizes also that a commissioner appointed to assist in settling a controversy between two parties in a foreign nation can hardly hope to be persona gratia to all factions alter the settlement is effected. Before leaving Washington President Cleveland practically set at rest all rumors that he would call an extra ses sion of Congress to consider the financial situation. During a conversation with Cleveland Representative Kilgore in quired regarding the intentions of the President as to an extra session. Kil gore explaned that he wished to bring his family to this city, and for this reason was anxious to learn w hat would probably be done in order that he could make his plans accordingly. The replv of the President was he would not call an extra session until September, unless some unforeseen circumstances which were not now anticipated made such a course necessary, lie stated a call would be made for assembling Congress between September 1 and 15. Senator Ransom. Chairman of the Commerce Committee, was seen in reference to the committee's Pacific Coast trip. When asked about the probable date of the start from Chicago he said he had an idea that arrange ments could be perfected so that the committee would leave June 15. There was no certainty about this, he said, but it was his purpose to get the committee away at the earliest possible moment. It is now stated that the committee will be on the Pacific Coast for fully six weeks, and possibly for a more lengthy period. Senator Ransom says the com mittee will go direct from Chicago to San Francisco. F'rom there the commit tee will go to Ix)s Angeles, to investi gate whether the proposed deep water harbor should be located at Rodondo Beach or San Pedro. When the investi gation for this purpose is completed other river and harbor improvements will be looked into, and then the com mittee will go north to Oregon and Washingson to investigate the Columbia river improvements and 'also the pro posed scheme to connect Lake Washing ton to Plli'er, Sonml hv shin ennui CHICAGO EXPOSITION.

The total stock of wheat at twenty eight cities in continental Europe de creased 3,403,000 bushels in March. Stocks on April 1 were 17,875,000 bushels.

The Jews of Bulgaria gave to the bride of Prince Ferdinand an album inlaid with diamonds, rubies and emeralds, which cost $50,000. The Pope sent a diamond ring. The latest crop report of the Hunga rian Agricultural Minister says frosts and north winds have done much damage to wheat, and a considerable area ot rye has been killed. Ouida's latest novel promises to be startling even for her. Mr. Gladstone will figure as a villain in the plot, and she promises to make him aa black as any she has ever painted. The Franco-Siamese difficulty is re garded at Singapore as serious. The Si amese traders, as thev fear there will be lighting, have ceased Importing rice, and the dealers are hoarding it. Many of the men who participated in the recent suffrage riots in Mons, Bel gium, have been sentenced to short terms in prison, and the Socialist leader, Bre nez, was sent to prison for five years.

What ever there may have been in the way of sculpture among the Greeks demanding artistic and accurate vision, there was no typesetting, no electric telegraphy, no stenography and no typewriter. The eye of the patriarch Job was constituted at birth and went through life to old age very much such an optical instrument as that of the English squire who devotes himself to an outdoor life in the Eighteenth or Nine teenth century; but Job had no printed books to beguile the tedium and pain of his seat in the sand and ashes. The examination of the mummies in the Egyptian mausoleums shows that there has been no change in the anatomical con formation of the human ear in 4,000 years, had there is no evidence that there has been any in that of the human eye; but the difficulty of preserving the eye for exam ination centuries after it has ceased to see prevents us from proving this.

I saw a clever thing worked the other day. A messenger boy got on the car with several bundles. He looked at the ad dresses on them all to see where to get off first. "Hang it," said he, picking up the largest one of the lot, "the marker forgot to put the mark ou it. I don't know where to take it." It was a cold day, and a moment after the messenger entered the car he was fol lowed by a seedy looking individual who had heard the boy's remark while on the platform. Soon I saw him writing an ad dress on that unaddressed package when tne Doys head was turned. It must have been at some nearby street or hotel, for uddenly the boy shifted his boxes, looked up hastily, and evidently thinking he had missed the address at first glance he made a bolt for the front door and was gone be fore l could stop him. In the meantime the rogue who had writ ten the false address got away by the rear door, and I have no doubt got home in time to intercept the bundle. Let this serve as a warning to all. New York Herald. "Old Ginger." Some Leeds children had been sent into the village by a charity fund for a fort night's country air. The elerevmnn nn asking a group of these little girls to what parisnes tney belonged, was informed by one little town mite with much pride that she lived close to the parish church. "Ahl" said the clergyman, "what is th name of the vicar?" for a new appointment had re cently been made to his nursery ground of dignitaries. "I don't rightly know his name," was the reply, "but we always call him 'Old Ginger.' " "Dear me." said the parson, "but why 'Old Ginger?'" "Why, that's the color of his whiskers!"
