THE CliOSE OP NAVIGATION.
The Erie canal , the only great com
petitor of the railroad monopolieBhas
closed for the season , The route by
the great lakes and the canal to the
seaboard is the safety valve to
transportation exactions daring the
saasoti when navigation is opan , and
any excessive rates by the railroads engrain
grain and provisions are rendered im-
> osEible by reason of the free and full
ompetition afforded by these great
rater highways of the continent. Nome
mo appreciates this fact more than
railroad managers. The opening of
the canal in the spring is always fol-
owed aby a reduction of freight
rates and Its close by a corresponding -
responding increase In the tariff
oa grain and provisions. The pro
ducers , shippers and merchants of the
west will hardly be surprised to learn
that in consequence cf the retirement
for the winter ofliis competitor ol
the railroads , freight rates have been
advanced five cents between Chicago
and New York , and the trunk line
managers are chuckling over the addi
tional sums which they will be enabled
ta extract from the pockets of
western farmers and grain shippess.
It is also announced that an addi-
tionol increase in rates may be ex
pected in February.
What an outrageous extorton upon
tha producers of the great west. What
a flagrantabasoof chartered privileges.
Are tha railroads endeavoring to prove
that the only limit to their rapacity
is tha ability of the people to endure
without open insurrection their
schemes of highway robbery. What
language is too strong to condemn
a policy which is robbing the country
to raise the vnluo of watered stocks ,
and to pay forty per cent a year divi-
dendato stock gamblersandunprincipl-
ed speculators , while Iho people are
toiling to earn a scanty subsistence
out of what remains from the plunder-
ings of the soulcss monopolies who
arc crushing the vitality out of our
farming and" industrial interests.
Two remedies present themselves to
tha people. The first is the passage
of laws forbidding , under heavy peu-
alt'es , discrimination and extortion
by corporate monopolies , and placing
such companies and their business un
der legislative supervision. The other
is found in the improvement of the
great water highways of the conti
nent , which will furnish , during a
hrgo part of the year , a competitor
which cannot bo bulldozed into pooling
earnings or bribed into consolidation.
The people demand a speedy relief
from the evils under which they ate
now suffering. No one state or sec
tion is interested in the solution of the
transportation problem. In every
portion of the country the people are'
crying out for a remedy and urging
legislative action , on a ques
tion of the most vital import
ance to their interests. No better ex
ample of the motives which influence
corporations in their management can
be cited than this aunnal fall and rise
in rates , caused by the opening and
closing of the Erie canal. It shows
that the monopolies will yield to no
other influence than that of coinpeti-
tion. It furnishes the key to the
great schemes of consolidation , whoso
only purpose is to throttle competition )
and place the country under the feet
of the railroad tyrants.
CONSOLIDATION railroads dooa
not hurl it helps. It is combination
instability of rates and discrimination
that hurt the people. [ Herald ,
What bosh ! Will Doctor Miller
inform his readers of the difference
which exists , BO far a.i shippers are
concerned , between combination and
consolidation ? Both arc exclusive of
competition. Both enable corpora
tions to raise rates to exorb'tant fig
ures and rob the pockets of producers
and consumers. Both place the pec
plo at the mercy of the railroads and
j make a monopoly out of roads which
j otherwise might have aclod independ-
ently. Consolidation of competing
lines is opposed to every interest of
trade , and banefits railroad managers
and stockholders by giving them
greater and more unbridled power
over the purses of the people. This
Is the reason why consolidations are
the order of the day.

Gen. Sherman's Bequest
gt. Lods Republican.
In bis annual report Gen. Sherman
renews and emphasizes his recom
mendation for an increase of the
army to 25,000 men , rank and file.
AD heretofore he gives good and suffi
cient reasons for this increase , and
these reasons have been obtained , not
through the medium of subordinates ,
but by personal examination of the
facts in tbe case. We have never
had a commander-in-chief who has at
tended as vigorously and systemati
cally to his official duties , and particu
larly to that portion of them which
embraces frequent and careful
personal inspection of the widely
scattered parts of the military ma
chine , as the present incumbent.
There is "nononsinse" _ . about Gen ,
Sherman. Whatever he does he noes
with all his mipht , and whatever he
sees ho sees from the stand-point of
olain and hard common sense. As far
sc permitted to do so he manages the
army on strict business principles and
never suggests changes or additions
in any department that basineos prin
ciples do not abundantly justify. If
congress should propose to increase
the army to 100,000 men he would
undoubtedly opnose it as strongly as
ho now rccomixends an increase to
25,000. He urges the latter on the
score of efficiency and economy , and
would object to the former on the
score of needless extravagance.
Wo trust congress will not refuse to
grant the modest request which Gen.
Sherman has made , knowing , as every
member ought to , that a man so thor
oughly sensible and practical would
* sk for nothing nnnecsasary nothing
' that the public service could safely do
without. Our lifla army which it
ia the fashion inotno quarters to rid
icule and doprvC.xla deserves gouer-
ou * treitment. It e s m idle hroad.
While perhaps a trifle top-heavy in
the way of officers , vnry few even of
these era unemployed , m.my of them
are harder worked than they would
be in a European establishment ; and
as for the private and non-commis-
aionod officers , the emallnoss of their
numbers compels no inconsiderable
amount of overwork. In short , the
- army as a whole gives value received
for all it cots. Ei'h'military visitor
from abroad is : - tonished at its
diminutive size wh > u he understands
what it has to do. And well he mav
be , for the size ia ridiculous when
compared with the magnitude of the
task. The truth of ton matter is that
congress , in its army legislation , has
pushed economy into niggardliness ;
, and , as might bo expected , the nig-
gardltncsa cost more in the long Bin
than judicious liberality. The
figures will deruoistrato that the
extra expense of transportation ,
store ) , and what may bo termed
general wear and tear , which the
amallnecs of the army and the de
mands upon it necessitate , swells the
average annual cost beyond what ith
would bo if the military establish
ment were larger. In other hay
we lose money instead of saving it ay
* keeping the army beneath the er
It is time this foolish policy were
abandoned. We want an army large
enough for its work , and 30,000 would
be none too large. Gen. Sherman
asks for only 25,000 , not because he
ho could not use the additional 5,000 )
advantageously , but because ho knows
the temper of congress and humors it
for the sake of the important Interests :
intrusted to him. The very least the
national legislature can-do is to give
what Is asked , and we hope the giving
will bo as prompt and cheerful as the

The peculiar position to be occu
pied by the new Virginia senator.Gen-
eral Willura Mahone , naturally at ,
tracts attention to his record , and
tnakea him a person of general inter
est. Theunusual evenness.of the two
great parties in the senate will doubtless -
less give to the Independent Virginian *
the balance of power , especially-en
abling him when Senator Davis acts
with the democrats Ise
to decide absolute
ly between the contestants. Genaral
Mahone is a resident of Petersburg ,
Va. , and during the famous siege was
in command of the defences of that
iil fated _ city. From early life
and he is now about forty-nine
yeara of age he took deen Interest
in-tho politics and general growth of
his state , and at the becinnlng of the
war entered heartily and with charac-
tjrittlc energy upon the duties as-
nigned him. After the surrender le
accepted tbe situation and turned is
attention to the affairs of the state in
which he lived. He
soon found him
self arrayed against tae Bourbon fac
tion and not at all in accord with what
appeared then to be the ascendant
party. As early as 18C9 he used his
influence toward the isa
formation of a
new and progressive party , which" :
should strive to place the credit : h".d h"f
the state on a substantial basis , and
from that time to the present be has
been regarded as one of the soundest ist ,
equarest and beat intentioned among '
the leaders of the Old Dominion from
the morass of Impecuniosity to the
respectable and comfortable plane of
credit and repute. Yesterday Gov.
George C. Gorham , of California one
of the trio that managed affairs for the
republican party in Indiana during the
October campaign was found ii his
room in the Gilsoy house , and , in re iss
sponse to a question concerning his
personal acquaintance with General
Mahone , replied. "Oh , yes , I know
him very well indeed. "
"What is his personal appearance ? "
"He has a handsome head , a very
turnsihe scale at 109 pounds. He is
quick and nervous -in movement and
as bright as a new silver dollar. "
"Outside of politics what ia his oc
cupation ? "
"He is proprietor of The Richmond
VThig and very careful in its conduct.
Ho was a pronounced Tilden man in
1876 and gave him the delegation In
the convention. Ho came within ten
votes of being the candidate for gov
ernor. " , , , ,
"Has he any special hold In the
state ? " .
"Yes , several. He can do more
with the negroes than any other man.
He Is regarded as the peculiar friend
of the public schools , and when the
appropriations were expended he made
a hard fight to have the schools kept
open , taking thecronndthat the childy
ren were the preferred creditors of the
state < and must not be neglected. He
did more than anybody olae to see that
a "free ballot" meant a free billot.
In other words he flaw to it that the
amendment to the constitution was
not a dead letter , but was enforced in
letter and in spirit. "
"Still he Is a democrat ? "
"Yes , but there is no fraternization
between him and the Bourbons Ho
was elected as a read juster. Ho gives
no heed to men who talk of repudia
tion. * His desire is to have the state-
he represents placed on a farm finan
cial basis. He is heart and soul op
posed to the Bourbon funders , as
tbey are termed there. He has plans ,
and I believe he was the ability , too ,
to adjust his methods to a desired
end so as to conform to sound busi
ness ideas. He ia not visionary , but
a practical business man. "
"Have you talked much with
him ? "
"Yea ; & great deal. "
"About the organization of the sen
ate ? "
"Not one word. "
"How do you think he will vote ? "
"That depends. Ho is absolutely
non-committal for obvious reasons ,
but I can readily conceive of condi
tions which can make It easy and 1
pleasant for him to-vote with the re
publicans. It will not doformoto speak
to the senator as if I knew how ho
Inteiids to vote , for I know absolutely
nothing. I reason from the situation ,
from his known desire to develop and
build up the state he represents , and
from the general character of the man
and his antecedents. Ho will in any
event be a marked and useful member
of the senate. "
Jay Gould's Great Scheme.
St. Pan ! Pioneer Precl
The report which came from two or
three distinct sources yesterday , that
Jay Gould IS engineering a great
railway scheme , which will consolidate
all the Pacific railways , except the
Northern Pacific , with the Wnbash ,
under control of a single hand , is
emphatically denied at New York.
Ordinarily , this would only be anoth
er feason for crediting it ; railway
presidents are not accustomed to take
the newspapers Into their confidence ,
and the newspapers have learned to
translate an emphatic denial by a
railway man Into an affirmation. If
the atory ia credible in itself , it may
be discussed without reference to the
New York denial. It has , in its main
features , some elements of credibil
ity. In the first place , Jay Gould has
obtained control , in one way or
another , of all the important railways
affected by the rumor. He owns
practically the Union Pacific and
the Wabash. The latter by a process
of absorption has become the master of
the southwestern roada , which makes
a not-work from St. Louis to the gulf.
Gould ia just about creating a new
line , connecting the Wabash system
with the seaboard. A movement ia
now on foot for the Consolidation of
the Central Pacific with the Union
Pacific. The supreme court decision
just made places the Missouri , Kansas
& Texas in the hands of the stock-
huldiera , who are apparently prepared
to turn it over to Jay Gould. This
road will put the Wabaah system in
connection with the Texas Pacific ,
which is aiucoptlblo of absorption.
Here are all the materials for a
Rrand continental tyatem of railways ,
extending from the Atlantic to ;
the Picinc , and from the great
lakes to the Gulf of Mexico. All
that is needed is to crystallize them
Into a unit. It i * natural to infer that
the allcin t 'i n ambition of
Jay Gould nouscM \ t unite them.
Gould has not < lily been immensely
successful in his railway strategy in
the last few years , but he has lo
his strategy enormously productive in
a financial point of view. ' He has
counted his gains by the rise of stocks
by millions , and probably commands
more resources for purposes of rail 1-
road combination and control than
any other person in the country. He [
ia in a position to make the masterly
stroke outlined in the
terday morning. Everything in hia
history indicates a'probability that he
would make it. , The story has a credi
ble ring to it. It boa probably some
substantial basis of truth.
The credibility cf the story , how
ever , does not extend to all its details ,
nor to the Mexican part of it. The
Soject for a railroad to the city of
exlco will do for politicians to spec
ulate upon , but practical railroad cap-
Italiata are hardly likely to inveat sub
stantial wealth in it at present. b.3o
with the report that Gen. Grant is to
be mode president of the new tea
bination. It ia always safe to expect
the unexpected from Jay Gould. But
really it looks as though the published ;
sensation was an ill-jointed patchwork
of two schemes ; a practical plan for
combining conveniently lying mem
bers of a possible great railroad sys
tem into a solid and consistent
whole , and a tpeculative and stock :
jobbing scheme for building a
, paper railroad upon the foundation ot
a military reputation. The only part
of tbe story it ia necessary to discuss
ia the practical part , and it is some
what premature to erect any specula
tions upon this. One con hardly re
strain his imagination , however , from
picturing the new conditions which
will be Introduced into political , com
mercial and social life by the growth
of so gigantic a monopoly among
American railroads. If even the cred
ible part of the scheme outlined yes
terday is realized , tte most stupendous
deus monopoly will be created that
ever xisted in the world , capable of
controlling the traffic of the t ,
profoundly influencing , b > its
unchecked power , over trans
portation rates , the commerce EDf
a world , end bringing a power
to bear upon state and federal legisla
tion and the courts , never paralleled
in the history of the country. Such :
a combination as ia described will not
rest satisfied without grasping the
lion's share of the traffic in its terri iei
tory. This can never be accom
plished without a scries of devastat it
ing railway wars beside which that In ti
augurated by the Wabash will be ii
child's play , and which will be con
tinued until all the rival roads are re ii.
duced to feeders or dependencies.
After the now combination has set t- i.t
tled with the railroads It will have to
settle with public opinion and the
government. Its existence and growth
to such gigantic dimensions will aronae
and concentrate upon itself all the
jealousy and suspicion which Is so
ready to attack corporate monopolies.
The granger movement will apring
Into new life. The transportation
problem will assume dimensions and
complexity never before imagined ; the
neation will for a time over-
the most important , most powerful ,
and perhaps the most feared and hated
person In the country. It does not.
requirea very fertile fancy to see
great and alarming consequences flow
ing from Mr. Gould's ambitious
New ( York Timss.
Prof. Spencer F. Balrd , United
States ' commissioner , haa just forward
ed ( to Mr. E. G. Blackford , the Hew
York state fish commissioner , some
1,000 young carp for public distribu
tion. The fish , as seen yesterday in
the tank at Fulton market , were
about one aud a half inches long and
in fine order. These carp are four
months old , and have baen raised in
the carp preserves adjacent to the
monument in Washington , under
charge of Mr. Rudolph Hessel , super
intendent of the U. S. carp ponds.
The parent fish were brought over
here some years ago by Mr. Heasel.
These young fish will be
distributed generally throughout
the state of New Ycrk * to
persons possessing suitable waters
for raising carp , applications to
bo made to Mr. E. G. Black-
ford , the limit of fish to etch person
being five pairs. Watdr suitable for
carp are those where the temperatures
are not too low , as those fed from
cold springs. A muddy bottcj is
preferable , and there should be in
spring and summer a good growth of
plants and vegetable matter. Aoove
all , carps should be the only occupants
of a pond , otherwise their ova when
they spawn , and'the young.fish them
selves , would be destroyed by other
fish. The growth of carp in the United
States has been found to bo
most extraordinary indeed , much
greater in a given time than in Eu
rope. A carp of but a fe < r _ inches
long , under favorable corditions , In
the neighborhood of Nev York.hns
been known to h < vo Kroarn within a
year to be 10 inches long and to have
welghod..alraost two pounds. In the
warmer waters of the south the In-
crmse in size in a very limited Umo
has been oven greater. This , Prof.
Baird thinks , can be reidily under-
stood , because the lost pariod of
growth , the time of hibernation , is
not undergone by the fish In warmer
climates. There can be no pos-
sible doubt that , thanks to the
United States fish commission ,
the finest variety of European carp
( Gypnnila carpioia ) now permanently
established among ur fresh water
fish. PeraonS sending for fish who
wish to transfer them must , of course ,
prepare themselves with'the ' requisite
cans. Shipments are made by .the
Now York commissioner through New
York city only , at the absolute cost
of the cartage. Carp are exjeedingly
hardy , and only tha eimplest precau
tions are necessary in transporting
them. A great many applications
have already been made for these
