Now we hear of a fruit trust being
formed at Now Orleans, with it capi
tal of $10,000,000, to corral all the
tropical fruits that come to this
country. This seems to lay an em
bnrgoou the supply for the southern
states, as an Atlanta dispatch says,
that steamers trading at tropical
ports are tumble to procure cargocw
except through the trust, and the
exactions are (pittc burdensome. Of
course,, tho object of these trusts Is
to mouopnll.u thu business and
bleed the consumer to the extent of
his means. Tho management of tlio
luiulxir trust lit tho Sound imrts Is
on the same extortionate n'lnulplc.
The narrative of a 1'apt. Charles A.
Davis Is published, who left the New
York trade lately to engage In the
wusteru lumber tralllc. He Is master
of his own vessel and prooHcd to do
business Independent of rings and
cliques. He sent a circular to nine
dlttcicut mills on the Sound, asking
them for lumlwr for which he ottered
to pay cash. From some he received
no reply. Others expressed regiet
that they were so crowded with or
der they could not accommodate
him. The Tacoma mill In reply to
his application, asked where the
cargo was to Ik shipped. Ho knew
with this evidence, corroborating
what he had heard, that If tho cargo
was for a fmulgu port he could have
It, otherwise not. Hence he de
clined to accept It. This daring In
truder thus continues his story :
The Hun Kranclsco lumber trust
controls pretty nearly all the busl
ucstt hero on the Hound and in Cali
fornia. They havethclryurdsbtook
cd with lumtter In Han Diego but
will not drop one cent In price. I

to do an open bthJitixi. If the In-1
torest of tho many ngnlnst the ag
grandizement of tlie few is to be
considered, these trusts should re
eolve heroic treatment.
Receptions to returning heroes
aflbril a handy iiiguiis of expending
popular cnthuHlasm, and distribut
ing any sums of money that are
burdensome to thu owners. Recep
tions have been given to foreign
opera singers and exiled patriots,
and lately wc have come down to
giving our own citUens a rouse
when they return from foreign
travel. Gen. Grant created quite a
stir when he nrrlved in San Fran
Cisco, after his delightful and
picturesque circumnavigation of the
glolns. The crowd that turned out
to meet lilainc, and hung around
uncomfortably for two days, await
lug tho arrival of his tainted vessel
according to the published accounts
of that aquatic festivity, far ex
ceeded that which gave wclcouo to
the military hero. The next one to
receive with oratory and fanfaronade
will be the railroad magnate,
Chaunccy M. Depcw, his claim to
popular applause resting on his
graceful retirement from the Chicago
convention, when he found his can
didacy distasteful to tho granger
And now comes to us a copy of
the K porting Life, of London, which
lauds our distinguished fellow
countryman, Jake Kllrain, its an
unsurpassed hero, and devotes a
solid column, in extra broad measure,
to enable his calling by tho mention
of such former patrons of the ring as
Lord Althorp, Charles .lames Fox,
the Prince Jlcgcnt, Lord JJyron,
and several other historic ijrson-
acs. "Kilraln's reception on the
other side of the herring jxnid," we
are assured, "will be the gieatcst on
record." The aid of tho muse Is
