A WISH KKFOUM.
WASIIIKOTON , November 13. An
amendment was made in the rules of
the supreme court to-day which will
deprive Clurk MoKinnoy of probably
one-fourth of his income. Chief Jus
tice Waite , in announcing the changes
in the rules , said the statute regu
lating the clerk's fcrs waa passed in ,
1790 und that the practice as it now
exists is in all national respects what
it had boon for moro than lifty years.
There is an apparent conflict , added
Jndgp Waite , between the rules and
practice under thorn , which ought not
to exist. It is also evident that what
fifty years ago was no moro than rea
sonable compensation is now , under
the operation of the rules aa then
constructed , larger than it ought to
Several cases of some importance
wore decided to-day. In that of E.
D. Pritchard vs. Norton , it was hold
that where a bond was executed in
Now York to bo enforced in Now Or
leans , the laws of Louisiana must
govern , the judgment of the United
States circuit court of Louisiana being
roveraod. In the case of the Equator
Mining and Smelting Co. vs. Geo. W.
Hall , the judgment of the circuit
court of Colorado was reversed and anew
now trial ordered , the court holding
that under the cede of that state each
party to the suit is entitled to a new
trial without alleging cause or pay
ment of costs.
* The case of the county of San
Mateo vs. Southern Pacific railroad ,
was advanced on the calendar , pro
vided day is fixed this year. This is

tha day sot for the office to open , and
at 3 o'clock tljat morning over 600 at
torneys assembled in front of the
office in readiness for business. At 9
o'clock , when the doors were opened ,
there was nuch a rush that the doors
and' windows were broken , and sev
eral fights occurred in the eagerness
to file application first that the re
ceiver was compelled to make the an
nouncement that all applications
would bo regarded as having boon filed
simultaneously. Over nine thousand
dollars worth of land was sold for cash
the first day ; 100,000 acres were en
tered , and that , with protest and ap

I'OSTAt. SAVINflfl BANK.
Postmaster General Howe has been
debating the propriety of recommending -
ing in his annual report the establish
ment of a postoffico savings bank in
connection with the money order sys
tem ot the poatoffico department , and
has finally come to. the conclusion not
to raako such recommendation , but to
leave the matter to congress. For the
paat few years each successive post
master general from Croswell down to
Maynard have recommended postal
saviuea banks , but congress has
never took kindly to it.
Such banks , in the opinion of the
poatoffice officials who have strongly
advocated them , aa now the past "postal of
bank system , presupposes a perma
nent national debt ; that the savings
deposited may find an invest-mont tor
which the gororuiaent is responsible.
In fifteen years , at the present rate of by
paying off the debt , there will bo no
government bonds in the market and
hence no bash upon which to build a
postal saving bank system.
