There is no longer any doubt but that
Denver Junction will have a bridge across
the South Platte. Perseverance will win
ever' time, and the gentlemen in charge
"of the bridge matter have an inexhaustible

be said whether the bridge can be built
this winter or not, as the bids for the
building of it will not be opened until

A case of more than ordinary, interest
was decided last week at Sutton. A Mrs
Percival obtained judgement for $2,59S
against John uurran, a saloon keeper for
causing the death of her husband, Percival,
who was about sixty years of age, took in
the saloons ot button on a winter's dav
three years ago, and in the evening started
for home, three miles distant in a heavy
snow storm. He was intoxicated, and no
doubt fell down and died from cold. He
was found frozen stiff next morning a
short distance from his home. This
decision carries out one of the wise pro
visions of the Slocumb liquor law, which
makes all saloon keepera liable for any
damages resulting from the sale of intox
icating liquors.

Many strange religions have bean intro-.
ducedinto California, among them Hin
doo Theosophy and Chinese Confucian
ism. The growth of Spiritualism there
is so rapid as to challenge attention. A
local paper, noting these facts, says It is
about time for the Christian churches to
wake up.
A violent agitation of the Chinese ques
tion has broken out in Augusta, Georgia,
since the publication of the recent out
rages in Washington Territory. For
several years the Celestials have been
flocking thither. They have prospered
in business and now own so many groce
ries, wholesale ana retail, that a large
number of the citizens have petitioned
the city council to take steps to prevent
further immigration. The feeling runs,
high as the Chinamen have many friend
among the lower classes.
The British steamer Greyhound, trading
locally in Chinese waters, has arrived at
Hong Kong, and her second officer reports
that a daring attempt was made by ChU
neso pirates to capture the vessel. The
captain of the Greyhound was inveigled
on board a pirate ship and after being
plundered was killed. The pirates then
attempted to seize the Greyhound, and a
desperate fight ensued, in which the other
officers and the engineers of the latter
vessel were badly wounded. The
Greyhound put on a full head of steam
and escaped to Hong Kong.

in without disturbing the occupancy of
that benificent institution. The biggest
public hall in New Yor,k is completely
underground here ; there is a free library
and reading room above, and the gratis
classes in various useful branches
of art are maintained. The lavishness of
the expenditures is indicated in the fact
that $200,000 is being spent in the present
alterations, made necessary by the settling
of a heavy house into a soft ground.
Nevertheless Peter Cooper's perpetual
gift to the city is disliked by thousands
of earnest Christains, who honestly and
devotedly believe that it does more harm
than good. Religion is systematically
