to unusual length. It is defiMtoIy SF
known that a message will bo sent to jV {
both houses on Monday , including
the legal opinion in support

the exact decision reached , but the
weight is with the idea that the bill SOI
will neither bo signed or vetoed until a <

taining n special rate on trans

iion of thu provision of the

crocodile tears on behalf of the church
of which " 0. P. H. " i m > bright and
shining n light flu'uxni liejp the

latest complaint of the cupri'SBion of
thu "tub law" ' is brought out by the
following extract from " 0. 1' . II. V
letter : "Just before thu pissngo of
that law wo had n bpicial rate on
flour to last fjr a certain period ,
but as neon as thu tinio expired
the tpccial rate was withdrawn , and
the local freight on Hour advanced be
tween sixty and seventy per cent.
This of cpurso was n fatal blow to the
milling interest , " tto. As " 0. P.

without doubt , reads hia Bible at
least on Sundays when the water is
low , I will commend h m fur hia next
Sunday'ti reading to Acts xix:24 : , et
aeq. , for n parallel to his own
disinterested Christian statesman
ship. But every cloud has its
ail very , . .lining , , and , whjlq. thp
"church seminary" 'is in this "very"
"slough of despond , " by reason of
having to pay thu same as other people -
plo for its transportation , "O. P.
tl. ' has just received notice that
"yielding to the urgency of our ap
peals , " the Sioux City & Pacific road ,
in its "generosity , " will establish
low rate on flour , and
thereat " 0. P. H. " gushca hia
gratitude. And this low rate
is to bo madu "general nnd equal all
along their lino. " This is a result ,
liowover , that " 0. P. U. " does not
want to bargain for. Ho wants the
low rate , but ho wanta it for thp ( lour
manufactured at the Oakdalo milland
that the law prohibits , "honco these
tears. " But why should the consum
ers of the ilour weep ? Tney obtain
the benefit of tlio low rate instead of
ihe dificrimco being pocketed by " 0.

L'his is a fair siunploof every complaint

John G. Moore is to' bo president of
the company. The Mutual Union.
Telegraph wns started about two
years ngo by the Into John Q , Evans ,
who up to tlio time of his death , last
winter , was president. Its capital
was § 000,000.
It is proposed only to build lines
letwcon this city , Washington and
ioston , and to lease them for private
use About a year ago , inspired pos-
ibly by thp Absorption of tlio Amori-
um Union , this company decided to
ncronso its capital and build n gonor-
1 telegraph system. To that end it
was decided to
n $10,000,000 and issue bonds for
5,000,000. , A ca > h subscription to
Ti.OOO.OOO of the stock was oU'ered to
lie public last spring upon the terms
liat each subscriber to ten shares of *
lock should receive ua n bonus a
11,000 G per cent bond. The disposi-
,1011 , of the rest of the stock was not
tatcd , but it is understood most of it
vas to go to the contractors who have
built the company's lines. When the
ompany was nearly ready to issue its
took to its subscribers , they having
aid up their subscriptions nnd ro-
eivod thp bonds to which they were
utitlod , it vns prevented from doing
10 by an injunction \yhich was ob-
ained by Pliny Babbitt. The sub-
cribera are now awaiting the result
f the Babbitt suit in order to obtain
I HI ntock tn which they are ontitlod.
Ic is uii'lurstood that the public took
buut $4,000,000 of the subscription
llertil. Incidental to the contract
made to-day is an understanding that
hall bo withdrawn so thai the atock
all the securities shall be listed upon
the stock exchange except the 52,000 *
held by one syndicate , which ia to be
hold in trust , or otherwise withhold
from the market. The lines of the
Mutual Union will , under this arrange
ment , bo opened in harmony with
the Western Union , possibly by
, fur a certain percentage of the
earnings. It is understood that thu
business of thu Mutual Union insures ,
lot only the interest on ita $5,000-
)00 of bonds , but includes a dividend
n the stock. The company haa put
ip about 16,000 milna of wire , readi
ng ] all the principal business centers
lorth of thu Ohio and east of theMis-
lissippi , and has opened about 460'
iflicos. It has competed with the
iVestern Union at all points where ita
noot profitable business was obtained.
