curious paper. It insists that pooplu

THE city council of Philadelphia has
passed an ordinance requiring all telegraph
graph poles to bo taken down and the
wires put undorgroundboforo January 1. .
The ordinance will probably bo enforced
but the Philadelphia papers very proper
ly suggest that the city council sot the
example by ordering the police and fire
alarm wires to bo burled.

Our in Colorado they have a peculiar
way of resenting impositions on convention

Don't pay a cpnt in Colorado Springs
If the batata insist on their present pro

A RAILROAD is to bo built from Morris

and the capital stock is iixod at $10,000 ,

democratic representative for the Firs
Ohio district. Uo was ro-olectod in the

Samuel F. limit. Uo was again nominated
atod in 1882 , by acclamation , but shared
in the defeat of the republican party ii
Ohio , resulting from the liquor prohibi

appointed commissioner of patents it
October of last year , and has made a

The New York Evening Post recently
published a letter , purporting to bo signed
od by Green B.Ilaum
| , directed to a gov
eminent clerk and elating tlmt.his silence
on the subject of contributing to the
republican campaign fund was equivalent
to hia expressed wish to resign hia clerk
ship on or before March 4ih next. Of
course Mr. lUum promptly denounced
the document aa n forgery , although it
waa hardly necessary for him to do so What
surprises us , however , is that auch a
paper as the JJvcnlny J'osl would allow
itself to bo BO easily imposed upon , aa
the forgery of such duoumenta is an old

Mayor Murphy's recommendation to
the city council that the ollico of city
auditor should bo established , is very
timely , and is heartily endorsed by Tin :
BKB. There ia no question aa to the no
cesaity for such an office , There is no
rlty in America of the same population
as Omaha that entrusts It is vast interests
to aucli n loose system as that pursued
hero in connection with the city resour
ces and financial affairs. In every department
partment of the city there is a general
looseness in the manner of doing bus'

who have no knowledge or moans of

As n rule they take everything for b
granted , and probably not one bill out n
of a hundred is oven questioned. Some b
day it will bo discovered that this method p
of taking everything for qrnntod is a very T
dxponslvo way of transacting business , k
This city certainly noodn an auditor to al
examine every hill , to file RI
proper rocoiptu , and keep n perfect check
on the treasury. At present the city
clerk is compelled to act in n triple ca
pacity. Ho is clerk of the city council
and is required to keep the records of
ita proceedings and handle all its multi
farious papora. IIo is a sort of comp
troller who issues all the warrants and
bonds , amounting this year to ever half
million dollars. IIo is expected to
have supervision of the entire license
system , which includes the issuance of
licenses to liquor dealers , oxprossmon ,
peddlers and a host of uthorr , nnd be

The Indiana at the Poplar river agency
In Northeastern Montana are roportoi
to bo on the verge of an outbreak. None
ono will bo surprised nt this news when i
is known that these Indians , about six
thousand in number , are actually in a
starving condition. They have had only
half rations for the past year , nnd lately
they have boon so reduced that they havi
been compelled to kill and oat their dog ,
and finally , to keep themselves alivo.thoj
have killed a few range cattle. It wa
only when they began feeding upon tin
cattle that the facts of their condition were
brought to the attention of the author !
tiesnnd now Major llartxcommanding a *
Poplnr river , has called for reinforce
ments. Ho fears an outbreak , nnd needs
forces to keep the Indians in a starving
nnd dying condition , and to protect the
range cattlo. It seems to us that th
proper thing to do would bo to allow
thorn to feed on the cattle , and lot the
owners seek compensation from the gov
ernment , which is responsible for th
situation. Necessity knows no law , and
the wonder is that these Indians hav
not gene upon the warpath long ago ,
The Piogan Indians nt Blackfoot agency ,
also in Montana , have boon treated in a' '
similar manner. They have boon wast
ing nway and dying for n year for th
want of food. The deaths average on
daily out of a total of two thousand
Game has entirely disappeared , and thol
only dependence is upon the sheri
rations. Governor Crosby protests in
the name of the people of Montani
against keeping the nation's wards withir
the limits of that territory in such a pit ! '
able and starving condition. Human
ity nnd justice demand tlioi
immediate relief , nnd ho calls upon
the secretary of the interior to take th
responsibility of ordering the issuance o'
full rations until congress moots in Do
combor. This deplorable state of nllairi
is duo entirely to the action of the demo-1
crats in the house of representatives
who , following n cruel nnd falao polic ,
of economy , withhold proper appropria1
tions. The Indians have certainly give :
to the white man concessions that ough

SENATOR VAN WYCK'S bold and scath

How Clnnn Encountered the 1'Jnro-
pcnna nnd Suffered Detent ,
The first war between England nnd
China broke out about the question of
opium , In January , 1811 , the ships of
the English fleet were ordered to attack
the Rogue forts which defend the river
approaches to Capton The Chinese
troops fought well nnd offered nt some
points a stubborn resistance oven at close
. quarters ; but the forts were carried , ono
after another , nnd either destroyed or
occupied. The following demands were
then formulated ns representing the terms
on which the English govorninout were
prepared to recognize ft satisfactory set
tlement. The recognition of the king of
1n England ns nn Independent sovereign , an
apoligy for discourteous treatment of
\ Lord Napier , nnd the right to trade with
any post where an imperial custom-houso
was maintained , formed the chief points.
But although Kcshon consented to these
terms , na well ns to the aurrondor o Hong
1R Kong , it was only with the _ intention of
Raining time , as his instructions from the
Emperor Taoukwang did not allow him
to mnko concessions to the foreign bar
barians , but urged him to got rid of thorn
by some stroke of diplomacy.
Several wooka further delay ensued ,
and in February , 18 tl , the rnmaining
fortn of the Bougo were attacked and car
ried by storm. Koshon was disgraced
and summoned to Pokin , while in the fol
lowing month the foreign settlements of
Canton was occupied by an English force
and the town placed under the command
of the guns of an English licet. Even
this discomfiture did not destroy the confidence -
fidonco of the Chinese , who forthwith
formed a fresh plot to annihilate the En
glish merchants nnd their defenders.
The men-of-war were compelled to engage -
gage and to destroy the fort on Shamcon ,
as well as eighty war junka and fire rafts
in the rivor. The arrival of Sir Hugh
Gough aa conimandor-in-chief , and Sir
Henry Potingor ns minister plenipoten
tiary , was followed by the dispersion of
all the Chinese troops in the neighbor
hood of Canton , the putting of that city
to ransom and the resumption of negotia
tions for a definite treaty. Many months
of further delay ensued and in Juno ,
1842 , the acono of action was transferred
from Canton to the Ynng-tao-kiang. At
laat , on the 29th of August , 1842 , a treaty
of peace was concluded in Nankin , the
old capital of the Minga.
TUK toncuA Aitnow ,
The second war arose out of the seizure
of the lorcha Arrow at Canton. Admir
al Seymour occupied the river forts with
out opposition and called upon the Chi
nese authorities to make reparation for
the insult to the English flag. The Chi
nese official declinodcomplianco , although
the penalty of his recalcitrance wns the
bombardment of hta town. But nt thia
point the hidden dangers of the under
taking were unexpectedly made clear
The Chinese , far from being cowed ,
showed the most striking determination
and with each success more nominal than
real , their courage revived. Admiral
Seymour found himself compelled to
evacuate the position ho had aoizod , and
sent elf a request to the Indian government -
mont for the services of 5,000 troopa.
The character of Chinese as opponents
was shown by an attempt to poiaon nil
foreign rcaidonts nt Hong Kong ; but ,
although this plot was discovered and
disappointed , months wont by without
the arrival of the expected troopa , in
consequence of the Indian mutiny , and
the Chinese remained and felt them
selves to bo the masters of the situation.
It was not until the end of the year 1857
that Lord Elgin found himself supported
by a aufticiont force to justify his pre
senting an ultimatum t6 Yoh. This
move wfts accompanied by nn ndvnnco of
the fleet in the direction of Canton , and
by the occupation of the Island of Honan.
The French government participated in
these proceedings , and its representative
Baron Gros , acted in concert with Lord
Elgin , wnilo French marines fought side
by side with Englssh blue jackets.
The attack on Canton followed , nnd
resulted in the capture of that city and
also of Commissioner Yoh , who was sent
at a later period to India. But the oc
cupation of Canton produced very little "
effect on the central government , which
felt itself secure BO long as the foreigners
were kept at a distance. Lord Elgin
therefore announced his intention to
proceed , to Shanghai , where ho would
negotiate with any delegates the emper
or might appoint , but in the event of no
delegates making their appearance ho
would continue his journey to the neigh
borhood of I'okin. The notification was
made to the first minister of the emperor ,
who , howevorrofu8ccl to make any direct
reply and completely ignored the subjects -
jects mentioned in Lord Elgin's commu
nication. Thu English representative
was thus loft with no choice save to pro-
cued to the north , but the efficacy of hiu
proceedings was weakened by n further
dulay in the arrival of the English Hoot. a
The Bi'lf-confidunco of the .Chinese was
thereby restored , nnd during the int-r- biA.
vals the forts at the mouth of the 1'oiho A.A
was much strengthened and their garri
sons strongly reinforced. Tht-eo forts , sr
known from the muno of a village as srL'i
Taku forts , were eventually attacked L'iF
and captured. In many respects their in
construction and armament oxcitcd sur inhi
prise and admiration , while in others hiL
they were extremely defective. hiD
TIIJ5 yitEATY. 8l
The capture of the Tanu xorta brou ht T.OB
the imperial government to a moro yield OB
ing frame of miud. Two commissioners tilbe
were appointed on the arrival of the first bem
Kngllsh vessels at Tientsin , and after nu m
merous delays , negotiations were begun \ \
aa much earnestness aa OhinoRo ter oin
glvorsation would allow. The treaty of in
Tientsin was eventually drawn and ca
agreed f upon. The principal concessions an
obtained by this instrument were the
right to have a resident envoy at Pokin ,
and permission for English subjects to
travel throughout the empire. Five
other ports and the river Yang-tao-kiang
were thrown oputi to foreign trade , the
I'hcso consessions were made to apply tu
foreigners by subsequent treaties with
other powers. Unfortunately the Chi
nese government had not oven thonloarn-
to nuke a virtue of necessity ; and
when iu 1859 the envoys of England and of
Franco appeared at the mouth of the
Puhio and requested to be allowed to pro
ceed to Pekin , they were met with ob son
jections and counter suggestions that
were tantamount to a refusal. The Taku
forts had to be reuttackcd , and on Euro of
pean expedition marched to Pekin. The
destruction of the summer palace is still Pa.
remembered. The treaty of Tion-tsln
not only ratified in the capital , but
stipulations were immediately put into
uxecution , .
The principal effect of these wars and , dii
treaties was that they placed the rela- DUO
of foreign governments with the to
"hineso government on n footing which nd
made a friendly understanding possible.
The Celestials so far s'oatcd their preten
tious as to ndmlt t'nat there were other
independent j governments in the world
besides theirs , and that they wore entitled -
titled to certain rights nnd consideration.
The disturbed state of China herself lent
weight to these opinions , nnd while the
imperial authority was being reasserted
to n great extent with foreign nesistnnco ,
the Tsung-Li-Yamon under the guidance
of Prince Jvung , had an easy task in
showing that an agreement with the
European powers was essential to the
well being of China.

Eugcno Gaudins , warehouseman for
Messrs. B. Onorato it Co.for some time ,
is n good and trusty worker. Ho was
comparatively happy nt his homo , No.
231 St. Peter street , nnd in his walks ho
passed a place in which the tickets
of The Louslana State Lottery Com
pany are displayed. Ho had pur
chased tickets in partnership with his
fellow-workers. During August , ho saw
displayed ono that particularly struck his
fancy No. 1C,3C5 whether it wns the
peculiar placing of the 5's , or the magi
cal placing of the 3 , oven Gaudins is nt n
loss to explain. But that particular tick
et haunted him ; pooped out enticingly
from the window , becrging plainly to bo
bought. The day was close nt handnndlatill
it hung in the window. Ita comrades
were dropping off , nnd when the laat dny ,
the 12th , arrived , it was almost to bo pit
ied for its loneliness. Gaudins each day
glanced hastily to aoo if his little friend
was still in place , started several times
to walk boldly in and buy on his solo ac
count ; but the old trammels of the part
nership nrrangememt hold him , until the
laat moment. Ton o'clock on the morn
ing of the 12th ho hold safely in his solo
possession one-fifth of the coveted ticket.
The revolutions of the wheel at the Acad
emy of Music brought our No. 15,365 as
drawing the Capital prize. The fact was
published and came soon to the oars of
Gaudins , who yesterday was poorbut to
day , by the investment of n dollar , ranks
among the "bondholders. , ,
Ho called at the ofilco of the Louisana
State Lottery with Mr. B. Onorato , and
was promptly paid in full. A reporter
wanted to know what ho proposed to do ,
and ho answered that ho would buy a
nlco homo for his family , and that seeing
them placed beyond the reach of want
and in comfort would bo as much happi
ness as ho desired. The balance of his
money ho would try and invest profit
ably , and would himself continue to play
his modest part , unspoiled by prosperity.
Ho aigHed his name neatly to the receipt
for the money , and went out of the
ofiico of the Lottery as happy and con
tented n man as the Creacont City now
contains. New Orleans Ficayunc ,
August 15th.
Hearing that another fortunate holder
of a part of the lucky number 15,305
drawing § 75,000 in the August scheme
of The Louisiana State Lottery , was on
hand to collect hia money , a reporter in
terview od him , Mr. Louis Seymour , the
fortunate gentleman , was found in the
office of the Lottery with two friends.
Ho had presented his one-fifth ticket ,
and was awaiting the making out of the
check for the amount it called for.
While appreciating fully his fortune , ho
Tras perfectly cool and pleasant.
_ Ho told the reporter that ho was u na
tive of Memphis , Term. , andsorved in the
Confederate army in the battle of Shiloh -
loh under Genls. Albert Sidnny Johnson
and Bcaurogard. His health , impaired
by army service , haa grown much worse
of late years , and ho came hero to bene
fit himself. As hia means were limited ,
ho wont to work on the buildings of the
great World's Fair to bo held in New
Orleans next winter. Ho stuck to it
steadily for nearly five months , although
it almost counterbalanced the good done
him by the genial climato.
Ho was n firm believer in luck , and
never failed to purchase a ticket in the
Louisiana State Lottery. His experiment
in purchasing No. 15,365 haa confirmed
"iim in hia belief. IIo waa pleased with -
; ho country and the people ; was delight-
oil with everything , nnd hoped to enjoy
his good fortune. Ho had now formed
many distinct pinna for the future , but
would remain at ease for some time re
cuperating , not forgetting always to try
his luck in the lottery that had proved
such n bonanza to him. New Orleans

Wo are much gratified to learn from
an authentic source , that the board of
Cavalry Equipment of the United States
army , comprising experienced and nblo
cavalry officers , haa concluded to recom
mend for exclusive use in the service ,
the specific veterinary medicines made
by the Humphreys' Medicine Company.
This determination has been arrived nt
only after n most thorough and exhaust
ive examination of the subject , The
above board of officers , In the line of
their duty , applied to this company for
information upon the subject moro es
pecially referring to two points , the rela
tive loss of stock and the cost of treat
ment. The Humphroya' Company
simply referred the Board to various
horao-railronda , express , nnd other largo
stock owners for information , nnd the
result of the inquiry was such that the
Board has recommended these Specifics
and the recommendation haa been ap
proved by the Quartermaster General
and the General of the Army , and they
are being duly issued to the various Cav
alry regiments , posts , nnd light Bat
teries. Now , wo have every reason to
believe , from the known character of
the house supplying the vortorlnary
medicines , and the general reputation of
the Specifics , that the experiment , if
auch it can bo termed , will provo ontirloy
