Tf. -ineetions at issue are very simple (
and in fact resolve themselves ir:t' this
one: "By what authority does Great
Britain claim new any rights in J'.ehiing
sea which were n -ver claimed or exercis
ed in the satin waters until 18hi' Dur
ing the entire period of Kuhsiau owner
ship of Alasku unit then during the per
iod subsequent to our purclnse, down to'
tin; date mentioned, the riirht maintained
by 31 r. Blaine was mt questioned or in
frintfed'uoon l)v Eucrland or any other
4 J -
power. It is really a misnomer to call
those waters the 'Uehrinir Sea.' The old
term, Behring Straits, is far more appro
pria'e. Mr. Blaine presses this question
but Salisbuay evades it, falling back up
on the general denial of the right of this
country to treat these waters as a 4closed
sea." The truth is that in order to
justify the high handed outrage of cer
tain Canadian ships the British govern
ment was obliged to fall back upon that
generalization. If Secretary Bayard had
been equal to the emergency of four
years ago he would have secured a prompt
Mrrprtion of the wrontr. but. finding a
putty man in charge of the state depart
ment, the British foreign office sustained
the Canadian depredators in the evident
hope of being able to close out the mat
ter during the Bayard regime. Failing
in this, the contention is for arbitration
when in point of fact there is nothing to
"Mk. Blaine,1' says "The London
Chronicle," "proves himself an abler man
in controversy than Lord Salisbury, al
though having a worse case to defend.
'he representative of England seem mere
babies in the hands of Mr. Blaine.''
When the Samoan treaty was made, the
German press made remarks precisely
similar to these. The Bismarcks, they
said, with the better end of the case, had
got the worse end of the bargain. These
are the views that Americans read in the
foreign newspapers as to their dis
tinguished secretary. They only dis
cover how feeble and ineffectual he is
when they look at him through the wise
spectacles of an American mugwump.
The worst blow struck at the democrats
yet h the onj congress is now considering
which prohibits the carrying in the mans
of lottery circulars and tickets, lists of
drawings, money or drafts for the pur
chase of lottery advertisements or draw
ings. The needs of a comprehensive
law on the subject has become increas
ingly apparent of late, and the proposed
measure seems to cover the ground satis
factorily. If enacted and scrupulously
enforced, it will strike a serious, if not
m rtftl. blow at the lottery business.
Without access to the public through the
mails tiie lottery can have only a feeble
and precarious existence. The causa of
good morals demands the passage of
ueh a law.
While the public debt is decreasing j
i:; the United States the reverse process
is u;ider way in Canada. In 1807, at the
line of the establishment of the Domin
iu: its debt amounted to $22 per head of
the population, and that of the United
St tcs ?82 per head. Today the United
States debt, on the sunt basis, is about
$15, and that of the Dominion $4S. That
i3 to say, while the per captia indebted
ness of the United States is only a quart
er as great as it was twenty-three years
ico, Canada's is more than twice as large
as it was then. The steady and rapid in
crease in the burdens of the people is one
of the principal causes of the great growth
in nnnexation sentiment in the Dominion.
TV the United States, howeyer, this debt
xpansien makes the acquisition of Can
ada less desirable than formerly.
The editor sat in his hard bottom chair
trying to think a thought. He plougneci
his grim fingers through his hair but not
a new topic they brought. He'd written
on temperance, tariff, and trade, and the
prospects of raising a crop, till his read
ers had warned him to stop; and weary
of thinking sleep came to his eyes, as he
)i) lowed his head on his desk, when
iwake and refused to arise, came in drops,
tud were strange and grotesque. And
as the ideas airly float he selects the
bright one of the tribe, and this i3 the
gem while dreaming he wrote: "Now
is the time to subscribe." Ex.
Lv 1861 the democratic party turned
the government over to republicans. Its
reasury was empty, its bonds 20 percent
discount, half its public property was
stolen, and the nation's vessels scattered
the four winds. The republican party

Kittles of the century, paid the cost, re-

COTTON IN RUSSIA.
The danger to any of our industries iu
Ixing dependent upon the foreign mar
ket alone is forcibly culled to mind by
the threat to King Cotton himself con
tained in tho following paragraph cl;p-
ni'd from the Meniohis Industrie Ke-
- - .
The cultivation of cotton in Russia is
constantly assuming larger proportions
The cotton manufacturers of certain sec
tions of Russia are buying large quanti
ties of American cotton seed, and givinc
it out to farmers for cultivation. The
industry of cotton raising is being taken
in hand by great Russian capitalists.
They claim it will yield larger dividends
than any of the enterprises in which they
invest their funds at present. Cotton
raising is destined to become in Russia
one of great national importance.
From Tuesday's Dal'y.
County Superintendent Noble was a
caller at this office today, and informs
us that the reason there was no exami
nation held in this city the third Satur
day of this month, as the law provides,
he was compelled, owing to the delin
quency of divers school officers in send
ing in reports, to remain at home to
receive them. lie was correcting the
school ceDsus today of the city and th;
district lying immediately south, by
transferring 4." names from the city to
the district, as the city had taken iu that
number by extending its limits, while
there had been no legal change in the
boundaries of the school districts.
By common consent the city had enumer
ated all of school age within its limits,
while at the same time the adjoining
district would enumerate to its boundary
line, which included a late addition to
the city. The superintendent rules that
the district s-hould enumerate all within
its lines aud the city should not take
any names within the same territory.

STRUCK BY AN ENGINE.
Tom Riley Horribly Crushed by the
Fast Freight Today.
Today about 12 o'clock as the fast
stock train was going east, some of the
yard men who wer'j switching past the
depot, saw Tom Riley step on the track
in front of the train as if he was going
to cross to the other fide, the engine
struck him smashing in his right hip and
crushing his head some on the left side.
He was carried to the Perkins House
where Dr. Livingston dressed the wounds
as best he could, but pronounced him
beyond all medical aid and all was done
for him that could be to ease him until
he breathed his last at 1:40 p. m.
Wm. Neville was notified of the ac

about eleven years, that the man was a
good workman when he was sober, but
he would get drunk on an average of
about every three weeks. lie has a
brother but we could not find anyone
that knew where he lived.
This sad death wi'l be laid up against
the railroad, as all other accidents are,
but we venture to say if the man had
been sober he would have been a live
and well man now instead of a corpse.
