proscription , intolerance and outlaw

this trouble is among the least of ou
Bufferings. What is hardest to en
dure is the deprivation of politica

last election was a new revelation o

murder. 'It .surpassed its predecea
son in the systematic way in whicl
the villainies and excesses were prac

wrong , outrage and injustice. It ii
s&fo to lay you will nowhere ECP ai
exaggeration of the real facts , and the

seams to be no redress. Must it al
ways be so ? Will not the loyalty ant
statesmanship of the north find a rem
edy ? Ara these poor , helpless , de
voted and long-suffering freedmen tt
be called upon , year after year , to ex
ercise their political privileges at such
a peril and such consequences , while
the general government stands by al
most unmoved ] At present the south

franklin connty was unfortunate in
inancial matters this year. The
reasurer was found minus a large sum
and resigned some three months ago ;
and the newly appointed treasurer , J-
? . A. Black , has found by overhaul-
ng the books that the county is § 60 , ;
000 In debt.
Harlan county has been more
'ortunato , but a cloud of uncertainly
las been hanging , over her citizens on
account ot the failure of the connty
commissioners to make a settlement
with the last ttio treasurers. Compe
tent persons were elected to make the
examination this fall and have com
pleted their labors , without finding
any errors of criminal intent. Mr.
Rifenbury was found behind § 767.00 ,
and has held himself in readiness for
settlement ever since the close of his
term. The county is found debtor to
his successor , Chaa. Mcl'herson ,
$35.02. James Billings , the present
incumbent , varies only § 12.88. There
are very few counties whose officers
can shovr so good a record.
I learned.last evening from a brother
pencil-shovor , of a queer surprise to
the people of Fnrnas county by the
coming into their midst of an attorney
from New York , who presented for
payment $8000 of Fjrnas county
bonds of which they have heard noth
ing since an attempt to negotiate
them. When faiued they were placed
in-the hands of a Crete bank for nego
tiation , and were negotiated with Fitch
& Co. , of New York , on sixty days'
time. Within that sixty days , Fitch
& Co. sunk under the panic wave , and
t"he connty has never received any
benefit from the bonds. It is doubt
ful whether the county will pay them
without litigation. The bolder says
the interest coupons'have been proper
ly paid every year , but by whom , he
refuses to state. It ia possible that
the holder has cancelled them without
receiving any money , therefor in or
der to'give them the appearance of
validity. JAY.
Contemporary Review.
Our sojourn on the island for the
next ten days , however , far more
than compensated for the trouble.
The house is finely situated on a spur
overlooking the bold hills of Vanua
Levu. The long TJndu point closes in
the view towards the north , making
the part of the sea visible appear one
graat lake , and all around us and up
tbe slopes of the hills and at our feet
in the plain the young cocoannta are
waving. Let us go down to the beach
to visit the machinery houses and
thus get an idea of the work upon an
estate of this description.
These vast heaps of cocoanut are
gathered from all parts of the island ,
which has "a circumference of about
30 miles , and after the kernel has
baen extracted and dried on the long
catos or tables , or in the steam drying
house , which is the more approved
method , it is packed in bags for trans
port by the inter-island eteamers to
Levuka , or by some of the small craft
which the merchants employ to collect
their cargoes. . The price In the Island
is about 14 per ton. But after the
kernel has been disposed of the husk
is attacked , and by means of various
machines popularly called "devil , " it
is torn into the fibre of which it is
composed , and cleaned of its dust
( which is a valuable compost ) , and
turned into bristles for brushes , or
treated as fibres to bo packed into
bales for export.
All the laborers who attend to these
machined ore Polynesians , many of
them on Rambi being the wild-look
ing Tokalaus from the Gilbert and
Marshall group. Let us watch for a
moment the two who are from the
New Hebrides turning tbe
screw press by which the fibre ia com
pressed into bales. One ot them is
a survivor of the Carl massacre , who
refused to go home when one of Her
Majesty's ships came to repatriate the
remnant who escaped. Three of them
felt that they'had enough of the sea
and incidents , and preferred to * re
main where they were. They are
naked black giants , and as they throw
their force to turn the handle of the
screw , capstan-fashion , their mnzcles
stand out , and the whole frame is a
model of herculean power.
The storehouse is full of bales readj
for the steamer by which we expect
to leave , and these find a market in
S'dney , while the bristles go to Eng
land. Wo pass along by the laborers' '
houses , and there we find the familiar
coolies , and bear again the "Salaam ,
Sahib , " often heard when I sojourned
in Mauritius. Mr. Hill is the only
proprietor as yet who has had the good
sense to take up about 100 of the first
ship load of Tndisn immigrants. They
live quite friendly side by side with the
Polynesians , whom they term "lun-
glis. " A curious traffic has arisen be
tween them , the Polynesians going
out to the woods to hunt the wild
pigs , which they sell to the Indians ,
who get much bstter wages than them
selves , for a dol'a ' * a j i ; and on the
bread-fcsi1" , which crows in profusion ,
jnd other extras , tha coolies are be
coming fat and sleek.
Passing on , wa 30' into a cocoannt
grove , which stretches a long distance
along thecoaar , the lap of the fall tide
coming up to the very roots of the
first line of trees On some of the
trees the nuts are so thick as to defy
computation , being indeed too
crowded for growth. As many as
ihree hundred have been counted on
one tree , but this is only when they
'ire as small as apples , for they fall
abundantly in the struggle of the
ittest to survive. Still further along
the cost wo come to other flats and
valleys which are also being cleared
out for planting with cocoanuts or
cotton , and it is eaay to perceive the
exports from this ono island alone
Till , in not many yeara , equal the
exports from the wAole colony when
' arrived.
On one occasion , when the ladies
went by in R boat on a picnic to a
ocality called Georgia , where the
iroprietor has another house , I walked
with Mr. Hunter , the chief magistrate
of Levuka , along the coast n distance
which was stated to be six miles , but
which in the heat of the day , without
a breath of wind in the woods , I took
0 bo double the distance. The im-
nenso vatu trees were shedding their
eng tasseh ot pink and white flowers ,
which .filled the whole air with deli-
ate perfume. The path passed , through

The coal famine which has existed
along the line of the Union Pacific
and its branches bringa "Lomu to our
citizens in a pretty forcible manner ,
he conviction that they are deten-
lent upon that corporation's pleasure
or their fuel. Boone county's people
lid not vote bonds in aid of the con
traction of this road simply to gain
ho right of freezing to death , or go
ng back to ancient usages or customs
of hauling their coal from Columbus
or Oakdale. It is no excuse to say
hat the company is doing its best ,
and that other towns along its Una
are in exartly the predicament that
re have been in , for towns on other
ines not thirty miles away from us
lave been abundantly supplied. The
ronblo lies right here , that the Union
'acific are attempting , and virtually
lave forced us to be dependent upon
Jnion Pacific coal from Union Pacific
mines. The knowledge of that fact ia
tad enough , but when we cannot even
get Union Pacific coal in sufficient
juantity to supply our necessities ,
hen forbearance ceases to be a virtue.
1 the Union Pacific cannot furnish
rom their mines sufficient coal , why
lo they not allow their agents to had-
dlo other coal ) We , as citizens and
; ax payers , have a ri ht to demand of
hat company that they do not forcu
us to go away from home to buy coal ,
imply because the Union Pacific
wishes to retain for their mines a mo
nopoly of the coal traffic along the
whole length of their line. People
all along the Union Pacific are crying
out against this outrage , and papers
which heretofore have been friendly
o that company , are criticising it se
verely on the coal question.
From Iron to Steel.
Joston Herald.
From the contracts for ship building
hat hava recently been made in Great
3ritain , It is pretty certain that , like
heir predecessors wooden ships
he iron ehipa of the present are soon
o be displaced. The ehlp of the
uturewill.without doubthavo a steel
lull. The change , it ia true , is not
as important as the change from wood
; o iron , and yet it is an improvement
of great value. By using steel plates ,
nstead of iron plates , a great gain
s made In buoyancy , for the steel
plates , having a corresponding amount
if strength , are much lighter than the
ron plates. Thus , it is estimated that
n actuiil weight there will ba a duTcr-
ence in fa\or of the eteel ships of
about one-fifth. That is when laden
with what ia termed a freight cargo ,
merchandise that weighs down the
vessel to her sailing depth without fill
ing the hold , the steel ship will ba
able to carry one-fifth more than
ships of her dimensions now do. It
is obvious that this is a great gain ,
and would in itself often be sufficient
to change a Icsing into a profitable
voyage , since the running expenses of
a steel ship can be no greater than the
cost of maintaining a wooden or
iron vessel. Another advantage is in
the greater durability of steel , for
it is asserted that , where
accidents take place , a steel vessel
will stand unharmed a shock that
would completely wreck an iron craft.
Of course , the use of steel for this
purpose has been only made pos
sible by the discovery of the Bessemer
process of converting iron ore into
steel at a small expense ; but this
did not make the change practicable.
The first Bessemer steel plates that
were submitted to naval architecture
proved very defective , and
it was not until a large sum of money

and a great deal of time was spent in
investigations that a method was dis
covered of making steel plates that
could be safely used. Th re is one
disadvantage , apart from the slightly
increased cost of a steel ship ,
which may be urged
the building of them. It is impossi
ble to say what the effect upon
atcel plates will ba of the chemical
action of salt water. Experiments
have been made to determine this
point , but they can hardly bo called
decisive. It is held by some that
salt water will quickly corride the
steel or at least weaken its strength in
such away , that , while to outward ap
pearances the plates may be
sound , they will not bo able
to resist a severe strain. If this
theory is true , then a safe sea
going vessel can never be built of
steel ; bat this , as we have said , is a
theory , and it ia more > han probable
that experience will show that it is
not tenable. It may not be out of
place to add that by building steel
ships the English are throwing our
wooden hulls still more into the back
ground , and are making it without

the market and buy these new steel
