Major W. H. H. Llewellyn. The republicans
publicans of Now Mexico recently fa
honored Mr. Llewellyn in choosing him faol
ns a delegate to the national convention , olhi
and his deportment as delegate woa cl
highly creditable to himself and the poo- clw
pie of the territory. Territorial delegates
in congress have no voice in national
legislation , and their functions are confined
fined to the advancement of the material iral
welfare of the people whom they repre alcl
sent. Mr. Llowellyn ia a vigorous , active clI'
and intelligent young man , Ho ia I'n '

prominent candidates for the prosiden-

vention are Gideon F. Stewart , Dr.R. n , [
McDonald , and Ex-Governor St. John , >
McDonald proposes , if nominated , to [
contribute a million dollars to the cam

The annual reunion of the association
of the United States military telegraph
corps and the Old Time Telegraphers'
association , will bo hold at St. Louis on
the 20th and 21st of August. Thoao associations -
sociations include among their membership -
ship prominent telegraph mon and ox *
ports in every part of the country , and
the reunion will bo n notable gathering.
Among the principal features of the occasion -
casion will bo an excursion on ono of the
Mississippi palace steamers , on board of
which the banquet of the two aociotios
united will bo hold. It is expected thai
there will bo a very largo attendance , and
that the ro-union will in every respect
surpass all previous efforts of the kind.
The committee on transportation for Ne
braska is composed of Col. J. J. Dickey
and Mr. L. II. Korty.
The development of the science and
art of telegraphy is certainly ono of the
wondora of the nineteenth century.
Such a thing as practical telegraphy was
unknown forty years ago. It was in
18-14 that the first line of telegraph was
constructed , running between Baltimore
and Washington. To-day there is a network -
work of telegraph lines in every civil
ized country ; the glebe is circled with
telegraph cables , and the telegraph is ono
of the most important factors in all the
afTaira of life.
The Old Timers are the operators who
were actively engaged in the business of
telegraphing between the years of 18U
and 1803. They ore the pioneers of the
profession , end although most of thorn
are now engaged in other occupations ,
they continue to keep alive the cherished \
memories of the past , to ronowold friend-
ihips , and create now ones , at their an-
mal reunions , which are events to which
hey 1 all look forward to with a great
leal [ of plcosuBC.
The military telegraph association is
omposod of mon who served in the
Jnitcd Statca telegraph corps during the
to war. The war operators numbered
bout t 1200 , besides buildora and repair- )
ion , and the important aorvlcea that
hey rendered cannot bo too highly oa-
imatod. : They built 15,000 miles of
military telegraph , and transmitted
,500,000 telegrams. The military
elographora endured hardships and
.angora equal to those of the soliliors.
rlany of them were killed while operating
ines under the enemy's fire , and others
led from diseases contracted by ox-
osuro. Many were wounded , and nearly
no hundred were captured and confined
southern prison pens.
The services of the military telegraph
rs , while appreciated by the generals of
10 army who had practical domonstra- vr
on of their importance , have never *
Bon substantially recognized by con- th
oss. No pension * , bounties , or land nil
rivilogoB have boon tjivon to the military nilmi
ilogrophors , yet it would certainly seem
iat they were entitled to something of
10 . kind. Their number is comparative- th
small , and they could easily bo provid- thP [
for. General Shormau maintains the he

THE pneumatic tube , which works sat-

tried for long routes. A company U preparing -
paring to build a pneumatic tube system
between Now York and Chicago for car
rying loiters and small packages. Ono
tube is to bo for sending and the other
for receiving. The pipes are to bo oper
ated by a powerful engine and exhaust
wheel. It is claimed that the plan is
feasible , and wo should not bo surprised
at this in this ago of wonderful invention
and progress. It is said that if the tubes ,
which are to bo of brass , are properly
made and planted , no air will escape A
letter , newspaper , sample of grain ,
or small package of any kind , is enclosed
in n stitTlcalhor ball , and it is claimed
lhat this ball can \bo \ shot through the
tube to Chicago in less than a minute.
Stations are to bo established along the
route for local business , If the experi
ment proves succosssful wo may expect to
see at no distant day a pneumatic
tube system between all the principal
cities of the United States , and possibly
this country will bo connected wilh
Europe by pneumatic tuboa as it Is
now with telegraph cables. Of ccurso
Omaha will be connected with the system ,
and in that event wo can receive
letters , papers and packages from Now
i'ork in about a minute , and from Lon-
lon , Paris and other European cities in
ibout throe minutes. Chicago parcels
rill bo shot into Omaha in about thirty
ioconds. The great convenience of the
mivcrsal pneumatic tube system cannot ?
Jo overestimated , and its possibilities are
ilmoat beyond calculation. If successful ,
t is bound to do an immense postal and
express business , and the rapidity of its
f its operation will enable it to secure a )

his opinion , for the public to got a
knowledge of the proceedings of congress
Is to road the Congressional Record. It
is a fact worthy of notice , however , that
Mr. Edmunds , according to the roturni
of the disbursing olork of the sonata , is
a regular subscriber to eight dally news
papers. Ho appreciates their value , ap
parently , In some respects.
Senator Garland , of Arkansas , is next
to Edmunds , reputed to bo the best law
yer in the aonato. His speeches bristle
with references to Wallace's LXVI. , pngo
530,319 ; or Potor'a C , page 324,010 ,
and allusions of lhat sort. Ho is not a
very interesting man lo listen to , the
subjects ho ordinarily discusses being
dry , but what ho says is said in a straight
forward manner , with no attempt at
ofTucv , and in a voice heard in every part
of the chamber.
Oao of the most effective speakers in
Iho aonato is Mr Ingalls , and ho knows
it. Ha has a fine voice , with a manly
ring to it , which is hoard on every pos-
slblo occasion. This is not by any moans
intended to disparage the senator from
Kansas ; on the contrary , it rather shows
what interest ho takes in , and what at
tention ho pays to everything going on.
I iiavo often thought that there must bo
in his veins a little drop of Irish blood.
Ho Booms BO happy whenever ho can got
into a controversy. Ho enjoys , 1 think ,
nagging and badgering less clever mon.
It does seem to do his heart good to
overhaul a political antagonist or display
his powers of sarcasm on aom& unfortu
nate victim whom ho hoa caught napping.
Ho is never so much in his olpmont as
when a short , sharp , discussion
arises which permit } the free
use of invcctivo just tinged
with a little personality. In short , I
suspect ho loves to hoar himself talk ,
though that would snem to bo quito nat
ural , since others never object to listen
to him. There is , however , something
theatrical in his manner of speaking ,
mmothing forced , which does not always
impress you very favorably. When ho
rises ho looks like an exclamation point ,
10 thin and emaciated does ho appear ,
ind BO t.itiht and closo-fitting are his
slothes. Ho is given to bo sententious ,
ind is fond of "laying down the law. "
sometimes ho will perch upon assertion :
ind call it argument ; the result being
hat ho ia once in a while "taken up" by
A less brilliant colleague , perhaps , but at
my rate a moro thoroughly informed
no , nnd then ho subsides for a short
hue. Senator Hoar "laid him out cold"
n this manner the ether day , and so did >
Vance , and , I think , ono of the new
lonators who sit on the "Amen" row , viz.
the last and least desirable of the four
owa of chairs in the chamber. But no- :
Dody doubta that Mr. Ingalls is a man of
reat ability , a fine talker , and one
Thorn his associates and the public are
ilways willing to listen lo. >
The domocralic side contains an unusual
lumber of "lessor lights. " Senator
Saulsbury is the democratic Ingalls but
inly in outward form. Ho is just aa thin !
ind tall , though ho does not carry him-
lelf as straight and if I compared Mr.
ingalls just now to an exclamation point .
should bo moro correct in Mr. Sauls- ,
mry's case if I likened him to a point of
nterrogallon which somebody hadineffect-
tally attempted to straighten out. Hjro
.ho comprison between the two mon onds. )
ingalls is a man of brains ; Saulsbury
nero like Gratlitino , of whom Bassanio ;
aid : "Ho speaks an infinite deal of !
lothing , moro than any man in all Ve-
lico. ] His reasons are ns two grains of
rhoat hid In two bushels of chaff ; you ;

Senator Williams , of Kentucky , who >
rill . bo succeeded by "Joo" Blackburn ,
joks somewhat like the knight of the
lie doleful countenance , although
0 is decidedly better fed and has a great
oal moro sense than the poor Don. Ho
the farmer's friend , at luoat ho consid-
rs himself their Bpocial champion just
much as Conger does on the republican '
ido. Williams loves his little joke and
itroducos it in his speeches whenever ho
an. It is apt , however , to "go off" at
bo wrong time , a sure sign that ho has
'crammed" beforehand. Ho has also a
ital facilily for quoling popular sayings.
Ir. Conger , whoso name I just mon-
ioned , is not a very ready speaker ,
hough his remarks are filled with good ,
onoat , common sense. Ho gets on Iho
cent of a rebel claim quicker than any
ian in Iho senate , and when ho has sue-
ossfully traced it ho fights it vigorously ,

hony speaks rarely of late , but if he
oos , it is painful to watch the effort It
osta him to find the right word.

MACKEY AND HIS CABIN.
How the Xlonnnzo. King Houghed It
Before Fortune Smiled
Upon Him ,
Virginia City Enterprise.
In the first months of I860 times were
tough on the ComstocK. The winter of
1850-'CO was terribly severe , ns all old
settlers will remember. Supplies could
no bo brought over the mountains from
California , and before spring many on
the Comstock went hungry to bed about
three nights in the WOOK. That winter
a jolly crowd made their headquarters in
a cabin that stood on the hill-tide above
the Ophir office , tioar the California
shaft. The cabin was a sort of cavo.
In entering it ono wont down two
stops. The roof was composed of a
layer of brush , a stratum of dirt , andover
ever this a canvas cover to hold it all
in placo. The cabin contained four
bunks , two on the south and two on the
north side. John Mackoy had the lower
bunk on Iho north side , And Alexander
Kennedy slept in the upper ono. Pat
S. Corbott at present United States
Marshal Corbott and Jack O'Brien oc
cupied the south bunks.
At that time Mackoy , Kennedy and
others were running the Union tunnel ,
and were working every day. As times
grow rough and grub scarce , the number
of lodgers in the cabin increased. Jack
McCaffrey was taken in on the under
standing that ho was to furnish wood for
the household , and Johnnie Walker in
consideration of his doing all the cook
ing. The newcomers brought their
blankets and slept on the floor. Vir
ginia City was then a lown of shanties
and tents , and it was good to find shelter
anywhoro. Lumber being § 300 per 1,000
feet , palaces were not lo bo expected.
As the winter were away provisions of
all kinds bccamo scarce , and famine
prices ruled ; for a time early in Iho
spring. For a few days a square meal
' 'down town" cost § 2. These of the
boys in the cabin who started in with a
little money had either got to the end of
their string in keeping up their part of
tlip expenses or had gambled off their
Jack MoCaffery , who was to furnish
wood , began lo make night raids upon
the wood pilea of the neighbors in order
lo keep up his part of the cabin supplies ,
and , the weather being cold , ho was
sometimes prowling half the night
though the Ophir woodpile was hia chief
dependence. Ono atormy night Jack
was gene so long that his cabin mates
grow uneasy about him. Johnny \Volker
the cook , said Jack had whispered in his
oar as ho left that ho was going to the
Ophir wood pile. A search party was
sent out and to their inquiring whispers
they guallygot a faint reply. Following
up the sound they finally came upon
poor Jack. Blinded by the drivlngsnow
ho and a big stick from the Ophir had
tumbled together in a prospect shaft.
With the stick of wood on end and
itandinp on top of it , Jack's extended
land failed to reack the top of the shaft
by about two foot. Ho was hauled out
aruised and nearly frozen. Next tJniorn-
ng there was no wood with which to I
ook breakfast , but as there waa not
nuch to cook a board or two from the
junks furnished sufficient fuel.
Finally , hunger got into the cabin
ind not a man except Mackey had any
nonoy. An attempt to starve tno moro
hiftless into "hustling for grub" had
roved a failure ; they could do nothing ,
ind laying batk on their blankets , gave I
ip , like some of those of whom wo read
imong the explorers in ortic regions. The
ook had an easy time of it , nnd , as San-
ihp Paza says , the bellies of al ! began to
hink their throats were cut. By this 1
ime some provisions were beginning to
p packed in , but prices were fearfully
ligb. Mackay had just $30 left it was
ill the money ho had in the world. "Here
? at , " said ho to Corbott , handing him a
0 and a 10 in gold , "go out and BOO if
rou can find a sack of flour. "
A man had packed in from Flacervillo
.hat day , and Pat found him near where
he Bank of California now stands. It
ras all plaza then all open country and
iago brush along the present line of U S
itroot. The packer had just ono fifty-
ound sack of flour left. The price was
J20. Pat handed the Placervillian Ihe
nld , got back $4 in silver , and should-
ring the Hour , climbed the hill to the
saoin. Mackoy took the $ t and giving
t to the oook sent him in search of ba-
on , tea and sugar. Whou the flap-jacks
cgan to brown and the savor of the ba-
inn pervaded the cabin , the spirits of
oth the regular inmates and transient
oarders wont up to the fair-woather
lotch , and it seemed as if there was
lothing moro in the world to bo desired. '
