Tba following article from the Bur
lington Hawk-Eye of the 4th will serve
to give an idea of the elass of trade
which may be expected to flow through
our city as soon as the B. & M. is com
pleted to a junction with the U. P- at
A remarkable bhipment of merchan
dise passed through tbia city Tuesday
morning, which illustrates the wonder
ful changes that are now taking place in
this country in consequence of the coui-
Tetion of the Pacific Railroad. Mr. J.
' Junker arrived here on the Atlantic
Express direct from Yeddo, Jappan. via
San Francisco, en route for France, Italy
and Turkey with a cargo of silk worm
eggs for the i!k industry of those coun
tries. The shipment comprised 101 box
es in a special car. Each box was about
2x1 feet and 12 inches in depth, in
which were carefully packed the cocoons
in layers giving a free circulation of air.
The two chief sources cf damage to the
cocoon i in transportion are moi.-ture and
heat, and great care is required, to pro
tect them from storms and suffocation.
This Bhipmeut was brought by steamship
to San Francisco, thence in a Union Pa
cific freight car to Burlington, and at
this point transferred to a C. B. & Q.
baggage car. As the value of thisventurc
is estimated at about six hundred thous
and dollars, it will be readily seen that
great care is demanded to protect so
valuable an article of merchandize from
destruction or deterioration. The co
coons are firmly attached to pasteboard
by the natural secretions of the insect,
and in this condition present the appear
ance of coarse sand paper. Through
the courtesy of Mr. Ryder, of the
C. Ii. & Q. railroad, we have a
specimen of the cocoon?, which can
be seen at the The Hawlc-Eie office by
any desirous of examining this va liable
product of Japanese industry. This is
thr first shipraenc of the kind ever sent
through Burlington, and it is a source of
wonder that instead of shipping it from
Japan, via I he Suez Canal, to Europe,
the parties controlling this venture
should find it to their intorest to ship it
across the broad Pacific ocean, and across
the American continent, then the Atlan
tic to Liverpool, across England and the
English channel to the silk region of
houil.ern France, and to Italy and Tur
key. There mu-t certainly be American
enterprise at the bottom of this; indeed,
our credulity, iu view of the actual facts
would almost lead our imagination to
picture some of the live agents of our
own Burlington & Missouri River Rail
road firing around among the Japs and
foreign speculators of that flowery io!e,
"working up" this job for the great
Trunk Line they represent. If the B.
Si 31. R. and the C. B. & Q. Companies
havo agents at the Sandwich Islands,
why not in Japan, the Celestial Empire.
India, and everywhere else? We shall
br onby moderately surprised yet to hear
of soma live Yankee taking a cargo of
silks from Marseilles, on Mediterranean
coast, and bringing it, by the Suez Canal
the Indian and Pacific oceans, across the
American continent (via Burlington, of
course!) nnd the Atlantic ocean, and
laying it down at the doors of Johnny
Bull's sea bound home bef ore his clumsy
merchant men have passed with a like
cargo through the straits of Gibraltar !
FLECTIO.V IX LANCASTER.
Tbe Repnblicnn Pnrty Vindicated.
SOO Majority for Fhilpott.
Tbe People's Ticket Scooped.
From the Journal of the 3-.
The election yesterday was the most
exciting that ever came off in Lincoln
The people's men came into the field
with most desperate determination to se
cure a vote sufficient in the city to over
come any. Republican majority that
might be given in the country. They
expected to hold Seward ceunty "level.'
and some were singularly confident that
opsey would carry Seward over Phil
pott, relying upon Col. P 's former con
nection with the B, & M. RR. Company
as an attorney, to defeat him in the
southern part of the county. 'Money
was poured into the saloons and wherever
else greenbacks could be of use, Mr.
Silver saying that be had 40. 000 at stake
nnd he could not fail. Mr. Cropsey was
also on the giving hand, and never be
fore here hava that claw of politicians
open to "inducements" reaped so rich a
harvest of greenbacks. Yet there was
no disorder, amid the intense excitement,
bat little drunkenness, and rarely ar3'
display of angry passrans, or any ten
dency to violence.
The Democrats, in the laoming, were
acti.-e and jubilant, and at noon confi
dently claimed that they were far in ad
vance, In the afternoon the more staid
and substantial citizens began to drop in
at the polls, and the straight Republican
stock went up with a vim. The voting
was lively till the last moment, and seve
ral tardy electors arrived just as the
hour of six had been announced, teo late
The Cropsey crowd lnd given up the
contest by this time, and conceded his
defeat in thin county, though they pro
fessed to believe that he was a little
ahead in the city, l'arties in from Sew
ard reported Philpott carrying all btfore
him, and this gare the finishing blow to
The count was the last surprise, and
resulted most damagingly to the spirits
and pride of ye peoples outfit. They
had discovered after an illusion of sever
al days in duration, that the people of
Lincoln dni not endorse 5lr. Cropsey,
upon his anti-Butler and - impeachment
platform, and that after all tbe Journal
had been a tolerably faithful expositor of
the puhlic opinion ot Lancaster county.
Five hundred and six ballots were cast.
The Tote was as follows :
Philpott, 1233 ; Cropsey, 193; Robin
on, 307 ; Scoggins, 1 7S ; Casse!!, 273 ;
Silver, 233 ; Curtis, 296 ; Roper, 193.
As far as heard from the vote in the
precincts outside the city was very light.
The following are the returns that have
been received up to going to press. We
five th result so far as concerns Col.
hilpott and Col. Cropsey. The vote on
the whole ticket will not materially vary
from these figures however.
Oak Philpott, 19 ; Cropsey, 2.
Panama Philpott. 36; Cropsey 4.
Olive Branch Philpott, 19; Cropsey;
Highland Philpott, 8; Cropsey, 2.

Upper Salt Philjott, 20 ; Cropsey 0
Stevens Creek Philpott, 15; Cropsey
Mill, Waverly, Rock Creek, Rock
Bluffs, Peuton, Grant, Sallillo, Buda
and South Pass.
So far the majorities are about 350 in
this county, and 7'J in Seward. Two
piecincts are to come in from Seward
county, which will probably swell Phil
pott's majority to 125 giving him about
500 majority in the two counties.

still greatly excited over the po souing of
Mr. Ruth. Public opinion is divided as
to whether Ruth committed suicide or
was murdered by Dr. Medlicott. The
Journal of Wednesday fcays :
The remains of Faac M. Ruth were
yesterday conveyed from his late resi
dence to the Kansas Pasific depot, en
rnte for Pennsylvania, in charge of his
brother. There was no procession ac
companying the remains. They were
taken to the depot in Smith & Bailey's
hearse. We are informed, as corrobra
tive of the fact that he died of poison
if any corroboration were necessary
that the flias which had, from time to
time, settled upon the sheet th:own
over the remains, were poisoned and
died, so that there were huudredsof them
dead upon the floor when the body was
Before the remains were removed,
we are told that Mrs. Ruth took the
children into the room and swore them
over the dead body, upon the Bible, to
rcvence the murder Her tone toward
Dr. Medlkf.tt, it is said, had wholly
changed. She now speaks very bitterly
of him, and is reported to have said that
she hoped be would rot in jail, whether
he was guilty or not.
It is also said that Miss Emma Good

A. Cop of Horae-Made- Ten,
The Association organized in Califor
nia last year, to make a practical experi
ment in growing tea, lias met with en
couraging success. About fifteen per
cent, only of the plants imported from
Japan survived the voyage, but a large
quantity of tea seed imported germina
ted readily, and tbe young plants are
thrifty and promising. Of course, the
growth of thoe latter will require some
years extra time before a crop can be
produced, but if the shrub is destined
to thrive well on this continent, stock
raised from the seed is likely to prove
the hardiest and best.
We have only one favor to ask of this
company. If they find on cxpeiiment
that the plant can be acclimated and
tea grown at a reasonable profit, we beg
of them not t rush down to Washington
and demand a tariff to tbe extent of
three or four dollars a pound on the im
ported article, as a "protection to heme
industry." True, they would be just as
much entitled to it as the other interests
to which such protection has already
been extended; but the general effect on
the interests of the public would not be
favorable, from a free-trade poifit of view.
If tea can be raised in tlii country at a
profit, all right cverylody will rejoice ;
but if it cannot, it will be far the wiser
plan to quit the effort, and let the peo
ple enjoy the product of "foreign labor"
at the cheapest rates it can be produced.
1 he country is now rnjoyiog a protection
on teasels but to exUnd it to tea weuld
be quite too much.
Attronomrn by Inatinet.
A light-house keeper, relating his ex
perience of the common tendency of. sea
birds to dash toward the lanterns and
settle upon the rigging of the light ves
sels, adds that he had noticed the
birds remain on the ship if the night has
been clouds, but take their departure as
soon as the stars have become visible.
Hence he infers that the birds are en
abled to shape their course for land by
the stars, thus proving themselves as
tronomers by instinct. Strange, it true;
and it may be true, for animals to have
powers of observation of which we have
small conception. But we rather suspect
that the bird, eyeing a star, flies toward
it as toward a terrestrial light, ignorant
of its distance. They who have studied
the seemingly mad llight of winged
thinsrs against lamps and bright windows,
arc pretty confident that the lights i
ru.-hed at as an aperture of escape from
drknes. The tendency of animal
things is to seek light .-paces; and, weij
we see a bird or a moth dash at a flame,
we mav be sure, from the very force and
rapidity of its motiou, that it regards
the bright spot as a hole or window
through which it can dart into somo
space more brilliantly illuminated than
that in which it is fiing. Put a tew
flies into a buttlo, and 1 ave it uucoiked,
with the bottom toward a source of light;
the flies will crowd to the lightward end,
and never attempt to escape by the open
neck. Turn the glass pri.-on neck to the
light, and the Hi s will escape directly.
Giass is a substance out of a low crea
ture's cognizance. Flies, l-ird, and ani
mals dai-h stunningly against window-,
because they know not of the invisible
barier. Light house keepers see bird
maimed and killed by the force with
which they come against the lanterns.
In all such ca.-cs, the behaivor of the
animal shows that it mistakes the light
for a hole. And as we can easily con
ceive a night bird risiug, after resting on
a ship, and directiug its flight iu the
direction of the stars.
A w paper Acrobat.
The New York Herald is famous the
world over for its gymnastics. It is a
regular literary political acrobat, and
never fails, toss it never so high, to light
on its feet. Not long ago, it was ring
ing the praises of President Grant's ad
ministration, and de.-ing him with all
manner of fulsome compliments. But
presto ! it turns on him with an acrid
temper, denies him the semblance cf
statesmanship, breaks out in scornful de
rision of the party's prospects, and,
wi:h a p-ighty bound, clears the fence,
and flops into the Democratic wigwam.
Two ypars are to elapse before the next
election, and we shall note the gymnas
tic flops of this newspaper acrobat just
as they recur, up to its last "eleventh
hour" movement, which, as h generally
gets into the right place at the right
t ime, will proably land it into the Repub
lican camp again.
The Golden Age tells us that polyga
my is tolerated in Utah, and that when
the Americans cannot get rid of an evil
they arc usually sensible enough to leave
it alone. Which may be true although
we do not know of an instance in our his
tory. We did not let slavery alone: we
kept pegging away at the vice of intem
perance: and although we have not sup
pressed murder, arson, robber', or any
other crimes, we do not propose to tol
erate them. Now, another danger
threatens us. If we annex Sant Dom
ingo, we shall have a plenty of fathers
who have "tcores of childern," but no
wivps. Even the President of that Re
public is said to have forty or fifty child
ren and no wife. Doubtless we shall
tolerate this sort of thing, too, when we
get it. Xew 1'vrk Globe.

All. Bennett, in ci;e of his letters to
"i he People," ot Indianapolis, relates
the following anecdote :
"By the by, a good story is told of
Ben. Butler and his notorious honesty.
A short time since, Ben. Butler and
Wendell Phillips had business with the
President and, arm-in arm, proceeded
to call upon him The President was
busy, and sent word that he would see
them presently. Phillips and Butler
strolled out into the conservator', in the
rear of the White House, thence into
the garden. Butler and Phillips were
engaged iu an animated conversation
upon some topic. Butler became slight
"A large hatchet, belonging to the
gardener, was beside a tree. Butler
cautiously picked it up, and, while talk
ing, he made several daep gashes with it
into some of General Grant's favorite
trees. Just, at this juncture the Presi
dent appearing, Butler hastily secreted
it under his coat tail.
"After the compliments of the day
the President spied for the first time his
mutilated tree, and, with tones of vehe
mence, inquired who haa been cutting
that tree? After a few moments' pause
Butler stepped bravely up tothe Pre-ident
and took him by the hand, saying ; Mr.
President, 1 cannot tell a lie; 1 cannot
tell a lie ; Wendell Philips did it !"
Mark Twain's (-ed.
While I am speaking of animals I will
meution that I have a horse by the name
of '"Jerico." He is a mare. I have
seen remarkable and wonderful horses
before, but none so remarkable a- this.
I wanted a horse that could shy, au l this
one tills the bid. 1 had n id-vi that

rect I have pot the most spiritel hor-e
on earth. He shies at everything he
comes ac-ioss, with the utmost impar
tiality. He appears to have a moital
dread of tuiegraph poles especially ; and
ic is fortunate that these sre on both
sides of the road, because as it is now I

I fell on the same side) always it would

wagon. lie walked up to that with an
intrepidity and recklessness that were
astoni-hing. And it would fill any one
with admiration to see how he preserves
his self-possession in the presence of a
barley sack. This dare devil bravery
will be the death of this horc some day.
He bus only one fault: his tail has
been chopped off or driven up, and he
has to Cgbt flies with his heels, Tbi is
all very well, but when he tries to kii-k
a fly off the top cf his bead with his
hind foot, it is too much variety. He is
going to get himself into trouble that
way some day. He reaches around and
bites my legs, too. I don t care particu
larly about that, but I don't like to see a
horse too sociable.
Chararlcrialics of Son ml.
The following curious observations in
regard tothe transmission of sound have
been carefully verified by an extended
series of experiments: The whistle of a
locomotive is heard 3,300 yards through
the air; the noise of a raihoa I train,
2,S0O yards; the report of amuskctand
the bark of a dog. 1,800 yard- ; an or
chestra or the roll of a drum, ,C'j.)
yards; the human voice teaches to a dis
tance of 1 000 yards; the crosking of
frogs, 90O yards ; the chirping of crick
ets, 800 yards. Distinct speaking is
heard in .he air from below up to a dis
tance of COO yards ; from above it is on
ly understood to a rane of 100 yards
downward. It has been ascertained that
an echo is well reflected from the surface
of smooth water only when the voice
comes from an elevation.
Other similar phenomena connected
with the transmission of sound have
been observed, but the results disagree
either from inaccuracy in the observa
tions or from the varying nature of the
circumstances affecting the numbers ob
tained. Such variations occur to an ex
tent of ten to twenty per cent., and even
more. The weather's being cold and
dry, oi- warm and wet, are the chief in
fluencing causes. The velocity of sound
varies also, with the- temperature, trav
eling faster as the air is rarifid by heat.
At the point of freezing water, sound
travels 1 090 feet per second, at 02 de
grees it travels 1.125 fct por second.

inefficient. Let every decent citizen re

will be that reputable tickets will Ikj sub

only way to keep rats and mo!e- under
ground is to satisfy them that daylight is
fatal to their skins. And to checkmate

brought out the Engli-h sympathy for
France in an amusing manner. The
performance introduced some 700 per
