A.v exchange remarks that a cold

unusually cold day in Iowa when a

bo opened up to civilization by a rail
road , articles of incorporation for
which ivoro filed last -week. The road
is to run from a point in Atchison
county , Missouri , opposite Brownvillo ,

nway counties to Burlington Junction ,
Missouri. The capital stock of the
company is placed at 8000 000.
THE political Vennor of the Denver
Tribune has this to say about the po
litical probabilities for Colorado and
the region west of the Great Muddy :
"Do you BOO that candidate over
there ? _ Ho is standing atill. Ho is a
tlbniocratfc'caudidate. If ho were n
republican ho would bo running.
Democratic candidates arc not real
candidates. They can not run. They
do not oven walk. When you nro
very tired and want to rest you ought
to become a democratic candidate.
IK addition to the Field fundwhoso ,

field has been presented with $46,000
in cash , the cift of Mr. Robert L.
Stuart , Mr. Robert Lenox Kennedy
and Miss Kennedy , of Now York ,
each of whom donated $15,000. The
money has boon deposited to her
credit in the Bank of Commerce , cf
Now York , and notice has been sent
her that she can draw it nt any timo.
Financial trouble has boon most
thoughtfully averted from the w idow
and children of President Garfield by
the people of a nation which ho
served so well.

tion goes on forever. During the past
year the patent ofllco granted 13,084
patents for designs and certificates of

applications for patents during the first
niuo months of the year amounted to
20,503 , nn increase uf 1,900 over the
same period lust year. The receipts
of the ollico are stated to exceed those
of last year by $05,477.20. The

STOCK subscriptions to branches of
the Union Pacific seem to bo some
thing of a farce. In the suit recently
pending before Judge Savage Mr.
Thomas L. Kimball testified that on
the day designated for the opening of
subscription books at his ofllco for the
Utah & Northern road ho was travel
ing with Bidnoy Dillon in Colorado ;
that , BO far as ho know , there were 110
subscriptions offered at his ofllco on
that day , but that , as they were truv-
Doling together , Mr. Dillon made an
allotment of the five hundred shares
of the now company , assigning to
Messrs. Kimball and Popploton , of
Omaha , and Samuel Word , T. .
Hamilton and George W. Irwin , of
Montana , ono flharo oaoli , and to him
aelf the balance , as president of the
Union Pacific Messrs. Vining and
Durnhain , who htivo boon mentioned
as incorporatora , not being assigned
any Block. Upon Mr. Kimball'a return

Ono of the greatest scandals i
Washington is the well known cornice
tion of .1 number of congressmen wit !
private stock gambling schemes. Dm
ing the last session of congress tli
capital stock ticker wa M close ! ;
BC umed ns nt the brokers' offices , am
the lobbiesbccnmo at times a Wnl
street stock exchange on nsmallo
scale. Prominent members of tin
sctinto nnd house of representative
were known to bo heavily intercstcc
in the stock of railroads which sough
favorable legislation from congrcs
nnd their interest was maintained Ir
frequent pointers from the railront
lobby. The paid agents of the Toxai
Pacific nnd Southern Pacific roadi
were welcome visitors to the rooms ol
scnalorj nnd assisted in laying oul
plans of the campaign ( o bo cnrrict
out in the committee room. Ono ol
the boldest schemes of this class was
the attempt to open the Indian terri <
lory , which was manipulated by the
attorney of Jay Gould in the intcrcstc
of his southwestern system ol
railroads. Itvs estimated that
the sum at stuko to bo made by n
favorable vote of Congress on the
proposition aggregated nearly $30-
000,000. To secure this end the
spirit of speculation among senators
and representatives was fostered by
liberal pointers on stock and brilliant
pictures of the results of the rise
which would surely follow the open
ing of the lands for settlement. This
nicely worked up plan failed owing to
the strong and determined fight inado
on it by men who could not bo in
fluenced. But the public were amazed
to discover how much strength in
Congress could bo mjstorcd to the
support of such a rotten echomo.
But it ts not alone in stocks of railroads -
roads appealing for public aid that
members of congress are dabbling.
Pear of anti-monopoly legislation has
wrought the railroads to sco the neccs-
lity of inducing members to interest
hemselvcs in the affairs of the cor-
( orations in order to prevent the pas-
ngo of any bill restricting their ox-
ortions. At the time of an important
oto in last spring's session
if the fioimto barely moro than
quorum was present , owing to asud-
en flurry on Wall street , which
ailed senators post-haste to New
Tork to attend to their private busi-
cas. This state of affairs is a dis-
roco to'tho country. If the fountain
cad of our national legislation is oor-
pted , what hope can there bo for the
assago and enforcement of laws so
oeded by the producing classes of tire
Duntry. Self-interest will always
rove paramount to the in-
irosts of constituencies , and a
muter or representative * with his
ockots filled with watered railroad
; ock is Jiardly likely to use his influ-
tico'and vote to diminish' the illegal
( actions of the corporations. What
.required of the > votcra of the nation
to use their oflbrU'first in bringing
invard , despite packed conventions ,
to true sentiment of the people on
10 question of the hour and next by
'fusing to support any man as a can-
iduto for congress or senatorial lions -

The foreign demand for American
heat largely regulates the price of
: iis great food product in our coun-
ry. For a number of years past ,
ith our constantly increasing acreage ,
re have found ourselves at the close
f each season's harvest with a largo
urplus over the amount required for
omcatio consumption. In California
nd on the Pacific coast last year this
urplus amounted 18,000,000 bushels ,
nd frpm the other w-heat-growing
tatos to a much larger amount. The
robnble demand for our surplus
rhoat from Europe on this account
ocoiuos of great moment in any cal-
ulation as to the state of the graii
unrkcts , and reports from foreign
reps are therefore watched for with
uterest at our great grain centers/1
Early in the harvest the cable ro-
lorted that the promise of heavy
reps throughout Europe was good ,
nd that the great wheat-growing ro-
; ion of the Danube would bo able to
upply most of the foreign dc-
Hand lor grain. Uccont ad-
ices , however , prove these loports
o have been in a larao way unfound-
d. The latent dispatches announce
hat the wheat crop in Algeria is "in
, deplorable condition. " The crops
n Germany and Hungary , though
letter than for some years past , will
lo little moro than supply the local
lomand. The state department at
Vashington has received information
> f "a deficit in the wheat crop df
fauico of 58,000,000 bushels which
oust bo supplied largely from the
Jnitcd State- . " According to another
lispatch the crop in the Danubian
irovinces is far from what was
nticipatod. All the indications are
hat our country will bo called upon
o supply the deficit for all Europe ,
nd that both Franco and England
annot look elsewhere than to our
m country for relief ,
Under these circumstances the
mount of our grain surplus ia oicit-
ig much discussion. The census bu-
aau has published its estimateswhich
ave been/supplemented by the colloc-
ion of etatistics by Bradstrcet'a. The
itcst information , and probably the
lost reliable , comes from the Grain
Jietiew , which contained the followin
interesting summaries :
For September the agricultural dc
parlmont has a preliminary estimator
"wheat crop when harvested , " whic
riTori's ( ' nn clement of values in th
final estimate of yield nnd qualitj
The condition nt harvest this year i
given for the whole co"ntr
nt 70 per cent. , against 00 last ycm
nnd 02 in 1870. Now England avoi
ages 97 , nnd makes severe complaint
of too ninch rain at hnircst. Net
Jersey and Pennsylvania com
plain of drouth , but n
n whole this section dues no
fall much below last year. The
stales from Maryland southward al
report some decrease in yield fron
drought , but speak of superior quali
ty. Tennessee nnd Kentucky eacl
report an average equal to last year
but the crop of last year was von
short in these states. North of tin
Ohio river , the great whoat-growin {
section of the United States , the average
erago is very Ion , Ohio reporting 21
per cent , loss , Michigan 27 , In
dinnn 'K ) , Illinois 40. Wisconsir
alone of these States reports equate
to last year. West of the Mississippi
river , Iowa makes return of only 45
per cent , against 70 of last year ,
Thoio seems to bo a panic in this state
and the probability in that the dis
couraging figures are an exaggeration ,
Missouri reports 30 per cent less thai
1880 , and Kansas , as l st year , rcportf
severe damage from drouth. California
reports 12 per cent loss than 1880.
It will bo scon from thcsa statistic !
that anything like an exact estimate
is impossible , but enough can be
learned to show that our croj
is a short one. The shipments
made ao far this year are * much
below those of last and bear out this
view. The increased price rrhich
wheat is bringing in the market will
bring the aggregate sum obtained by
our farmers for their crop nearly , if
not quite , up to the figures of last
year , while in many of the western
states whore the acreage has been
largely increased the sum total will
greatly exceed that of last year.
Hon. Otto Mears , ono of the com
missioners oppointcd by the interior
iopartmcnt to supervise the removal
sf the Ute Indians from Colorado to
the White Eiver agency , in Utah , was
n Denver last Saturday on his way
lotnq from the Utah agency ,
[ n an interview with a Tribune
oporter , Mr. Mcars furnished
; omo interesting information. c6n-
lorning the present condition of
ho Uncompaghrc Utcs. These In-
lians are all away from the Uintah
goncy and express themselves satis-
led with their lot.
They are perfectly peaceable and
riondly , and while they hate being
.riven from the homo of their child
iood to new fields , they are willing to
ubmit to the orders of thd Great
Bather at Washington. In their now
genoy the Indians will bo , bettor off
han in their old ono , as the couutry
a bettor adapted lor hunting and
razing than anywhere in Colorado ,
lie Indians number in all 1,458 ,
Deluding men , women and chil-
ren , and they have 10,000 head of
lieop and goats and 8,000 ponies , and
f course it will take several months
Dr them to got entirely settled and
vorything moved away from the Un-
ompahgro , but by spring there willet
ot bo a Ute Indian in Colorado. The
loving of the Indians from Colorado ,
Ir. Moars thinks , is a sad mistake ,
nd one which will injure Colorado
lore than was at first sup-
osed. During each year moro
ian $2,000,000 of money is
ipcndod on them by the
ovornmont in paying thorn their an-
uitics , putting up buildings , etc. , all
f which has heretofore been cx-
ondcd in Colorado , Hereafter it
OCB to Utah nnd that territory will bo
oncfittod thereby.
The now agency is situated on the
Vhito river , about 175 miles
ortheast of Salt Lake City , and
iot far from Fort Bridnor , and
here have been erected a wareroom ,
5x150 foot , a largo black-
mith shop , carpenter shop , agency
luildings , medical house and doctor's
cmdonco , four employe's houses , cor
als , etc. , for the purposes of putting
ho horses and sheep. Next year sov-
ral now houses will be erected at the
goncy , which will give them bettor
uartun than they had in Colorado.
WHEK congress voted $50,000 for a
rionumontto commemorate the BUT-
under of Gen. Cornwnllis and the
3riti h army at Yorktown , there was
10 thought of converting the corner
tone of that monument into nn urn
o preserve the relics of the defunct
onfodcracy of Jeff Davis. It seems ,
lowovor , that the parties to whom the
longressional commission delegated
ho honor to lay the foundation of this
listoric monument have desecrated it
> y depositing in the corner Btono a
ew worthless confcdorato'bank notes
, nd bonds and a photograph of the
obel flag. Every loyal American
vill regard the intrusion of mementoes
if the civil war among the relics of
ho American revolution ot 1770-81 as
.n attempt to canonize the leaders
if the slaveholders' rebellion , It
s a covert attempt to place
reff , Davis on a level with George
iVashington and his compatriots. No
ncidont of the rebellion was moro
liigracclul and humiliating to this
( tpublio than the bloody conflict bo-
ween citizens of this union on the
tistoria ground that was made forever
acred by the glorioua triumph of
American freemen over their Britis
oppressors. The attempt to imtnoi
taliro the confederacy through th
Yorktown monument is repugnant t
the patriotic spirit that animated it
founders and nn indecent uxhibitio
of incorrigible disloyalty.

Silver in Enropo and America.
Jtilcago Tribune.
Ex-Senator Thurman , who returned
rein Europe a few daya ago , reports
hat ho had reason to believe that the
ate International Monetary Confor-
tnco has had the effect it was design-
id to have in bringing the chief na-
ions of the world nearer than over to
ho adoption of the doublp standard.
3.Q says that , while the discussion of
> imotullisni was able on both sides ,
ho arguments in favor of fixing a ra-
io of values were much stronger than
hose which opposed this course , and
hat n very decided change of opinion
s noticeable in England. In this re-
ipoct Mr. Thurman's observations
igreo with those of Mr. Evarts , and
hero is no doubt that the chances for
in early agreement upon a ratio of
alues between gold and silver and
in international recognition of both
notals as legal-tender money are very
nuch better than over before.
There is one significant , circum-
itnnccs about the status of silver in
his country which should not be over-
ookcd. Ever since Mr. Shonnnn
> urrendored the Treasury portfolio the
iompl.iinta about the unpopularity of
, ho silver dollar have ceased. In Mr.
Sherman's time the impression was
tveii out on every possible occasion
hat silver could not be forced into cir-
iiilntion. Mr. Sherman , when See-
otary of the Treasury , represented
hat he was constantly making hcrcu-
cnn efforts to put out silver , but that
ho American people wouldn't have it.
tie sought to convoy the impression
hat there was ravenous demand for
cold , but that silver waa avoided as
something dangerous. Mr.Yindom
ins had no such complaints to make ,
lo has not paused to discuss the sil-
or question , and hence it has turniah-
: d no complications. The govern-
nent vaults nro not reported as filling
ip with fiilvor , and , indeed , are not
ivcr-crowdcd with silver ; though , if
hat were the case , there could bo no
afer or more substantial guarantee of
pccio payments. As a matter of
act , jhoro is more silver in circula-
ion in proportion to the extent of
oinago than there is of gold. For
ho second quarter of the present year
ho United States Treasurer has ro-
lorted that out of $91,000 000 of stand-
, rd silver over $28,000,000 is in cir-
ulation in coin and over $39,000,000
in the of cortiti-
n circulation shapeof -
ates. Thin leaves only 624,000,000
iwnod by the government , part of
vhich is in coin and part in cortifl-
atcs. Three years ngo there was
oss than $8,000,000 , of standard ail-
'or in circulation , and now there is
nore than $07,000,000 in the hands of
he people. This showing dpea not
> ear out Mr. Sherman's croaking nor
ndicmto that thero'is any ground for
maintaining that silver ia unpopular

year. Mr. Livollnyo hna shown thn
the entire gold product of the i\orl <
outside the American mines is no
much more than 850,000,000 per nn
nurn , or aix cents per inhabitant
The United States not only retains nl
the gold which the American mine ;
yield , but takes from Europe nion
than the annual product of the rest o
the world. How long can the commercial
morcial nations of Europe stand tin's
How long before England and Ger
many will bo forced to confess thai
silver money is necessary to them ? Th <
American exports have tcmporarilj
decreased , and the Banks of England
nnd Germany have materially in
croancd the rate of discount ; never
thelcsH , the drain of gold from } " ,
roao to this conntry continues. The
rohnbitntion ol silver ns money in al !
the markets of the world is only re >
lief which can bo found for the gold
famine which is sure to fol
low this course of things , nnd
England and Germany will probably be
the first to fool the necessity for such
n relief.
It is possible that an effort will bo
made in the next Congress to pass n
bill suspending the coinage of silver.
It will almost , surely fail. The time
hns not como when Huch n measure is
necessary to prob-ct the United States
from a redundance of silver. So long
ns there is less thnn $100,000,000 of
legal-tender dilvcr in the country , and
nearly three-quarters of that amount
ia kept in circulation naturally and
without any forcing process , no
danger is to bo apprehended from its
presence hero while it remains unrec
ognized as money in England , Ger
many , and ono or two other countries.
Suspension of silver coinage would
only bo desirable in order to convince
the European Governments that the
United States is in a bettor condition
to endure the contraction of mono
metallism than they are , ana for the
purpose of hastening an agreement up
on the double standard as the money
of all nations. But this step is not
necessary as yet , and it now looks aa
though it will never be necessary.
The present state of things will prob
ably not endure a year longer without
bringing England nnd Germany to a
sense of their own interest in fixing
upon a double standard , which is really
much more important to them than it
is to the United States , or , in fact ,
to any nation which uses both gold
and silver as legal-tender money.
