In itn closing hours congroaa char
tered an Atlantic cable company
which , it it "incatia business , " will
rlltfctually break up the existing com-
tjiimuoii. Fifty cents a wori ia nun
charged by tuo associated lines. Tlu
now act expressly provides llu > tby the
now line "the rutoa clmrced for message -
sage * for individuals ahull not exceed
'JO conta for each word ; " reaurvea to
congr s the right to amend the char
ter , or to fix rrttua by a general law ;
and declares that if the new corpora
tion waters its atock , or enters into
union with any other gable company ,
or with a combination to establish
rates , or sells out to another company ,
its rights shall be ipso facto forfeited.
The act is rather loosely drawn , and
sharp lawyers may find some waj tc
uscupa its provisions and penalties -
they are morally certain to try to de
so but the purpose of congnaj ic
plain onoifuh , the restrictive clausot
were adopted unauimoualy in botli
branches , and the company is likolv tc
bo bnu ht up with a round turn if il
undertakes any sharp practice.
The experience of oow-resa in dealing -
ing witli cable companies has been
anything but astiafactory. It granted
reat privileges to the last concert
that was organized , and left no loop
hole , as it supposed , for amalgam *
tioii. But no limit of rates was tixed ,
The consequence was , that after a bri
period of competition , during whic
2G cents a word was charged , the mai
agors of the rival lines got togothi
and quickly agreed to double up the
exactions. A good deal of unnccossi
ry fuss has been m ado about this con
bmation , btcauso- after all , whettu
cable service coats little or much doc
riot concern the mass of the people
Those who use the cablei daily oi ours
grumble at the imposition of hig
rates after low 'rates have prevailoe
but they are , as a rule , quitn able t
pay all that is over demanded. Th
cable business is limited , and genera
ly merchants and others who Imvo 01
raaion to communicate with Eurapo b
telegraph fully recoup themselves o
the public.
It is doubtful whether the incoi

head , is 8. L. Jr. Barlow , of No1

tendency umong railroad owiui

' . 'Every organization of a nuw com

Among the latcwt arrivals here frorr
the \Veat ia Dr. F. J. Quinlan of New
York , who for the paat three or four
yeara haa boon the resident physician
at the StandiniRock ) agency n | D kots
Territory. Upon thu reaervatioii
whore he waa stationed there were up
ward of 5,000 Sioux , one-half of whom
are just learning to bo civilized. The
doctor stated to your correspondent
that in his observations of Iho habite
and tendency of the Indians , they did
not evince any desire on their part
to return to savage customs ,
and , as he exproaaed it , the late
hoatiles make the beat farmers
Thoyl are anxioua and willing to till
the Holds , and the success of the pres
ent year's planting haa been of great
assistance in encouraging the practice
of peaceful pursuits , and Sitting Bull ,
who waa for a long time at Standing
Rock agency , has recently sent a po
titiori tu Maj. McLaughlin , the agent
in charge , asking to bo remove I from
Fc. Randall , where the famous war
rior is now confined , back to the agen
cy. Ho aaya that ho wants to gel
back among hia own'peoplo , and prom
ises if thia requeat is grunted to bo n
good Indian und live at peace with
the whites. The mortality among the
Indians ia not at all largo , und during
the past two years the births havt
largely exceeded the deaths , There
ia , however , considerable consumption
among them , which Dr. QUID-
Ian ascribes to the chaiigu
in their diet , clothing and
habits. Other diseases which
prevail among tlu-'Indians are ascribed
by the doctor to their association with
the whites and the entire change in
their manner of living. Still with all
drawbacks the condition of affairs at
Standing Rock agency ia of the moat
oatisfaotury and prosperous nature ,
which ia due in a mo is uro to the energy -
orgy , zeal and excellent ability of
Agent Mclaughlin , and one of the
boat features of hia management waa
the organization of a mounted police ,
thirty in number , composed of the
leading and beat behaved Indiana at
the agency. They were selected with
; reut care by Agmit McLiuuhlin , and
lave rendered valuable Hervico in re
turn for the promotion. They
make regular bi-monthly reports to the
agent of any irregularities in the con
duct of the Indians , the births , the
death or accidents that occur from
time to time , and &eom anxious and
willing to make a good showing.
