TUB atato democratic convention bas boon called for October 15th , at Lincoln Nrw YORK started out to ratio a mil lion dollars for a Grant monument. S < far abe has only raised $75,000. It wll ba rororal yoara before the million mark ia reached. AZABL BUSII , the Salem ( Oregon banker , docs not deny that ho Is thi person who wrote to tbo president do nonnolng ono of hla judiciary appointments monts , The latter Is noir believed to bo Judo Donne of Alaska. JONN L. SULLIVAN has made § 157,000 out of paglllara , but ho baa squandered every cent of It , nnd la $10,000 In debt No man of his ntrlpo over had bettor op- portnnliloa to make an immense f orhmu , bnt if ho keeps up the gait ho has been traveling ho will dlo a drunkard and pauper. _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ BUCIIAXAN , the absconding Loulovlllo whisky king , ia making money at his hotel near Windsor , Canada , to which bo adds the revenue from n roller coaster and boar garden. Ho Is also building a theatre , and having a good tltno gen erally. It la hard to keep n good man down In Canada. EMOKV STOKUS , the talented lawyer who died In Chicago , made a great deal of money , but bo opont /astrr than ho made it Ho seemed to have no idea cf the value of money , and It la eald that ho did not leave enough to pay his funeral expenses , which were defrayed by con tributions from his friends. Tun Ohlnoao at Rock Springs say that fully 500 of their number are willing to leave nt once. Thou why doesn't the Union Pacific let them go , nnd thus end ita coal mining trouble * ? Or does It pro pose to force a bitter and costly tight by forcing the Chlnote to rcrvaia ? If it does , It will not got any smypathy. TOE proper way for the Union Pacific to settle Its Wyoming trouble Into imme diately abandon tha employment of Ghkiojo. By forcing tbo Chinese back Into the mlnca It will elraply force & fight that will cost it moro than it wonld bo able to make up by Chinese labor for the next five yoars. Viewing the matter .from a bnslnots stand point alone , it will be a wise thing for the Union Pacific to employ no Chinese. There is no scarcity of whlto American labor. THE Grand Army plan of raising a Grant monumental fund , as suggested by Oommandor-ln-Chlof Bnrdotto , will no doubt bo heartily appreciated by the boy a In blue. The small turn of fifteen cents is all that IB asked from each mem ber of tbo organization , the amount to bo appropriated from the funds of each post. This la a very practical way of quickly raising the money with which to oroot n haudeomo monument. The Grand Army monument will probably be the first erected , nnd tbo location mil voiy likely bo at the national capital. GEN. HOWAUD Is an alarmist. Ho bas filled the Herald with predictions of war , In which ho will command 3 , COO men. The enemy that Gen. Howard al ready sees in the distance la the organ ization known as tbo Knights of Lioor. Ho hcs n keen eye , aud can SEO farther than most men. The Herald advises the Knights of Labor "to avoid armed ooLiltot , such cs It seems lo feared. " Gen. Honaid and the Herald bavo ( imply iraie themselves the laughing stock of the Knights of Labor , who ore by no means the warlike body thst the timid editor and the commander of the dopait- mcnt of the Plitto wonld have ua be lieve. a mile ever bo trottrd in tire minutes ? " Is n question that bas been frequently dlicnaaed. Had it boon mkod fifty years ago tbo answer would have been that n mlle in two minutes was simply an Impossibility , but to-day It is considered among tbo possibilities of tbo near future , In 1818 when Boston Bine made a mlle Jn exactly three minutes on a bet of $1,000 that no horsa could ba produced which could trot a mile In less than throe mlnulca it was rcgaidcd as a wonderful feat. Now three minutes Is ordinary time for the average roadster , ftud the 240 ; of only a few yonro ago Is considered alow time fcr a trottrr. Since Tom GdUnt trotted a mlle in 2:40 : In 1825 , the record has been eteedlly re duced by Burster , Edwin Forrest , Flora , Temple , Dexter , Goldsmith Maid , Earns , St. Julien , and Mind S. The lo treat rcc- otd , tlut of Maud S , a mlle In 2:082 : , if > liable ( o bo reduced by the qaoni of the tuifhcrccl' . It Is a redaction of nearly a ralcu'.a from whet was ones considered the fittest time , but It mutt bo admitted that t > reduce the record from ro r on will requ'.ra tha moat f vorabo ! condl. lout , GEN. HOWARD'S WAR OLOUD. GOD. Howard says that any attempt of the Rook Springs miners to destroy Union Pacific propoity or to stop the the nulls from running will be met by a strong reftlsttnco on the part of the gov ernment through ita military forces. That is porfflolly proprr , but Gen. How- aid need have no fears of the mails being intetferod with , and thcro Is bnt llttlo danger of any destruction of property. Ho ought to know that the troops are not at Rock Springs BO much for that purpsso as they are lo act as a police force in assisting the Ucion Pacific In Its attempt to overawe the whlto miners and force them to submit to the old Djstcm of omyloylng Chinese labor. No matter what the morita of the controversy maybe bo , these are the facts. Gen. Howard inUmates through til * Herald that should a strike oc cur along the entire lina of the reid , that ho will have exclusive control , as It Is within his jurisdiction , and that ho can call Into aollvo service at short no tice 3,000 men , to protect the road one its property. The general may hare jurisdiction In Wyoming , which is n ter ritory , but before ho swings his army into line into Nobrmk the state author ! tics may have something to say about It , When the city , county and state authori ties , Including the militia , cannot talco care of the situation In Nebraska it wll bo time for Gov. Dawoa to call on Prosl dent Cleveland to direct Gen. Howard to take the field. It la not very likely , however , tint any auch emergency la going to arise , oven If Gen. Howard does Imaglno that ho BOOS n war cloud rolling up from the west. Lot Gen. Howard lake care of Wyoming , and Nebraska braska will try to take care of llsjlf. Wo Trant no tayonot rnlo In this state. So far as any cttlko is concerned , wo do not bellcvo that n general strike Is contcm plated , and even If it should cccur , Gen. Howatd ought to know by this time that the railroad worklngmou of Omaha nro a peaceable class , and would under no circumstances maliciously destroy prop erty or oven disturb the poico of the com munity. FOREIGN LOANS. Tha Now York capitalists who rejected - ed the proposition of making a loan of $40,000,000 to the Chinese government to be used In railway constructlcn in the celestial omplro , and allowed the Chinese agents to go to England , where they succeeded , made a serious mistake. Had ; hls loan bean made In the United States , our capitalists would have had an option upon $300,000,000 Chinese gov ernment bonds to bo issued within five rear ; . The proceeds of the loan of 540,000,000 were to bo invested In rail road Iron , locomotives , and other supplies o the amount of two-thirds of the total , and the remaining one-third , 813,000- 000 , was to bo paid in silver to the inanciil agent of the Chinese govern ment to pay the laborers required In the construction of the rosds. Another prop osition , which was also rejected , was hat the Now York capitalists should take contract for the construction and ; qulpmont of the road at a stated price > or mlle , the Chinese government ogree- ng to furnish the labor and paying the contractors at Intervals , in twenty year C ) or cent bonds. Had the overcautious American capitalists taken hold of this ; enterprise the Iron Industries of thlscoun- ; ry would have been stimulated by $27- 000,000 , and thirteen million silver dol- ara would bavo gone to China , to bo f ol- owed by many millions more. Now comes another opportunity of a Eomowhat similar nature from Mexico , and it remains to bo seen whether our bankers will take advantage of it. Mexico wsnta 825,000,000 and Is willing to take it ell iu silver dol- ais. It Is true that her finances ara in poor condition and her credit with En gland la ruined , but she expects to rccu- lerato in a few years. In case Mexico can secure this loan in the United States , and if our government will lend Ita guar ; antee to the payment of the interest and > rlnclp l , Mexlc ) will , In consideration of BUSH guarantee , glvo our exporters ox- raordluaiy concessions in the way of ro- duotlou of duties. If this arrangement a s congnmm&tcd it will coitalnly open up a field for the American silver dollar and ; lvo to our exporters end manufacturers ho monopoly of the trade of Mexico. She Is a neighboring republic , with zlch a resources acd good prospects , " if her affair * ara properly handled , and we would not bo surprliod if she succeeded n her effort to secure the detircd loan In the United States. WHATEVER may bo the dnalro of the city council or the board of publlo works In regard to letting contract ; , the matter la wholly governed by a charter provis ion , which sayt : "All grading , paving , macadamizing or gnttorlcg of any streets avenues , or alloys , In the city for which , or any part thereof , a special tax shall be levied , shall ba dona by contract with the lowest responsible bidder. " This makes It compulsory upon the council and board cf public works to'let all such contraola io the lowist rsiponslb'.o bidders , even If bo Is a non.reeldont , aud although such action is contrary to the wishes of the au- of tboiltlts , who should not be held re sponsible ior tlio charter under which they are noting. THE Galveston News recently made : ho charge that foreign cattle o.mpaniea were occupying 22,000,000 acres of ichool ands In Teiar'for which en cnnntl rent ; < al should bavo been collected by tbeoiato and boaid. It alto charged that the school fond had bain robbed stnco 1875 of 12,500,000 Riros of 'and ' , worth ? 25COOCOO. These serious ch&rgoi h vo 33 > < 2on Investigated by a special laud com. i mlttloncr , whoso report sustains the Iu News. Whether any considerable per tion of this vast amount of stealings can be recoveiod Is rather doubtful. No sUto In the nnion ever endowed Its school fond BR liberally as Texas. About one-half of the vest territory of that state was cot Bfido ! for the benefit of thoschoo fund , which has boon so outrageously plundered. By the way , how much Is Nebraska's rchool fund being benefited by the rchool lands in this state ? I not our ecaool fund being robbed In i genteel manner ? The lands are baoom Ing valuable , and they should bo pro dticlnt ? a handsome revenue for the school fund , bnt wo are afraid that the give-away system of leasing that haa boon adopted will prevent them becoming o any great value to the school fund for great many years. MISFITS. Still another "rascal turned Into office' has been diicoverod In the person o Theodore Tyror , of Albert Loa , Mlnno sots , who h s boon fclvon a position in th treasury department at Washington. Ao cording to the St. Panl Pioneer Press Tyrer , while engaged In the patent medicine cine business In Bnffilo , N. Y. , was ar rested for forgery. Pleading guilty , ho was sentenced to five y ears'imprlsonmon In the Anborn penitentiary. Ho was paidoned by Governor Tlldon In 1875 , and then wont to Albert Lea , Minn. In October , 1881 , ho was Indicted on ton different counts for forgeries commlttoc In Mlnntsota. Ho pleaded guilty to two of ihom tnd was cent to prison nt Still water for four years , being released last May on account of good behavior. It acscrtod that Tyror owes his appointment personally to President Cleveland , whom ho knew In Buffalo. Still another "misfit" Is W. E. Grubb who has just been commissioned to iako charge of the publlo building at Frank fort , Ivy. A dlaptch to the Olnolnnat Commercial Gazelle says that four aopa- rate Indlotmsuti are now pendiug against Grubb In Bt.yo ! county , Kontiuky , where ho llvoa. The procession Is nho Incrsacod by Samuel Marlcy , the now poctmaoter at Bridgeport , Indiana. A letter in the Indianapolis Times says that ho was ar rested in Indi&napolls In 1872 as a detorter from the regular army , was convicted by court-maitlal , and sentenced to ono year at hard labor. Ho was pardoned , however - ever , and in 1873 went to housekeeping n ith his wifo. Marloy soon afterwards was sent to the penitentiary for five yoara for robbing his wife's sister of 842 , a gold pen and a geM ring. Ho changed his plea to guilty , and thus had his sentence reduced to two years. At the end of year , however , Governor Hendrlcks par doned him. This is , indeed , afino record for an official now holding a position of trust. If all tbo "misfits" of this character could be mustered into a line the length of the precession would ba simply aston- shlng. J. STERLING MORTOK In , his call for th ° a'ato democratic con ention cays that it s the especial business cf the convention onamo certain c&ndldates , and "thon do generally euch ether thing as may by & majority bo deemed advisable for the setter organization of the democracy of the state. " Wo suppose that by "such other thing" Mr. Morton me&ns an effort o sit down on Dr. Miller , and to dovlse some now method of dispensing federal patronage In Nebraska. It looks very much ai if that convention Is going to invo a monkey and parrot time. THE Herald , which haa always baen such a great friend of the worklngmon , sots up a great bowl over tbo council's rejection of Con. Lary as n member of the board of publlo works. When Dan. Sullivan and Pat , Lynch wcro defeated for street ccnim'salonor the Herald did not hare a word to cay , although they wcro representative worklngmen much more HO thin Lary. But they wr ra not Udion Pacific botso' , which fact explains ho Herald's eilonoa in regard to their rejection by the council. IN a preloaded interview the Herald tooks to convey the Idea that "thcro are good many ( Union Pacific worklugmon ) liero and elsewhere who have been anxious to have a strlko for several monthsand no doubt would go out at the very firat opportunity. " We don't bellovo word of it , so fir ns the Omaha men are concerned. If many of them were anxious for a strike why didn't they go out a few months ago when their pay was reduced ? Whut Is the Herald driving at ? la It trying to get up a strike ? STATB JOITINGS. Dock Httct , of Broken Haw , fooled with a gun aud lost a hand.

SUBSCIUBEK. PHOGUE99.c Marvelous Strides of tbo Postal Service. Chicago Times. Thora ia constant progress in the postal department , if in no ether department of thn general government. Almost ovary now pdstmanter goncrdhecomrnonds some Improvement in the service , which la adopted by congress. Recommendation * by ether cabinet officers are often never noticed by congress , while those inado by the postmaster general not only receive attention but are adopted. Thia prompt action ia probably QUO to the fact that no party interest Is involved In these pro posed changes , while every person in the country Is interested in the cheap and epoody transmltslon and delivery of mall matter. Unly thirty-eight years ago there were no postage stamps in me in this country. The prepayment of postage on lottora and papers was optional. Com paratively few persons availed themselves of the privilege of pajing the pt stage on letters they sent away. As a rule , love- letters were the only ones on which the postage was gon- etally prepaid , Some persons in sending letters to bo mailed gave written - ton instructions to the postnmter to charge the postage to thorn. Tha ma jority of postumtors ia email totrns trusted out" many letters , and often Icsi considerable money by dalng to. Some business mon had all their postage charged to them , and eottled their au- oouuts with the postmaster as tboy did with the butcher and grocer , onca a month or at the end cf a quarter , when it waa necessity to make rotuma to the ) department at Washington. Some cr.ro- [ ful but , after all , obliging postmaster * notified persons when lottora for thorn were received , bub retained the lottora till the postage on them was foithojmlog. Ad small change was scarce , and was chiefly of foreign coinage , there was often difficulty in obtaining letters from a post- office. Tboy sometimes remained a week cftor the parson to whom tboy were ad dressed were odvuud of taolr recep tion. tion.The The first postage stamps were of tin donominat ona of five aud ten cants , They wora printed on large shoots , and separate stamps had to bo out off with a knlfo or shears. They remained in USB during four year * , when a reduction of p3010.53 mada tbo Issuing of other de nominations uecoasury. There was con siderable opposition to the oompnlsoiy prepayment of postage , but after afoif yearn' tlmo the oppouetitsof the measure bscamo reoDnclled to It. The postal card wai very popular from thu tlmo It was firat lesued. It enabled persons to toad news to their friends from places where [ WAS difficult to obtain unvelop * * , Ink and paper. The free collection and de livery if poiUl matter In large ton mi were regarded with favor when the moieuro w s ptopoiod , but many believ ed that tboy would ba attended with so great expense that the plan wonld bo given up after trial. It was soon fouod , however , that tbo lieo collodion and dis s tribution of letters resulted In gaiu to o tha paa'ofi'ue ' dopir.ment. On the fint of next month the phn for f the Immediate delivery of letters will go Into effect Only towns where the free- delivery Bjstera has boon established , and these tbat hid a population of 4,000 over aaoordlug to the latt oemus , will ) dailvo any benefit from It. Only letters thtt have a sptclsl teu-ceut stamp In ad f dition to the ordln'.ry poetsgu stamp will bo delivered immediately en their ricpp- thn at the pcstoflico by ineanengcrs , The dillvery of them letteis will extend till cntdniut. , If tne Utters are registered ) they will require two special ten-cent s'Hinpi in addition the regular , pottago- unip , Persons living In the 03uatry can toad , though they can int receive , luttors t ara to balmnifdUttly delivered. In the opinion of many , no very gr/at n fljj will bo derived from the iuiiucdi. t ato-dellvery system. They Ihlnk few persons will keep special-delivery stamps and that it will bo too much trouble to obtain ono when It Is muted. In the builnces portions of most largo citlos there Is a regular delivery of letters five times etch day , Thcro Is no great delay In the delivery of letters In any portion of a town where the froo-dellvory system Ia established. The delay Is In the trans portation of lo'terafrom plac9 to plaoa , The telegraph Insures not only the speedy delivery bnt the speedy sending of mcs- 8 g05. But few towns will have the ad vantage of the special or Immediate de livery system , bnt every town that con tains a railway station has n telegraph cfilcp. It is llknly that persons who have been accustomed to send messages by tel egraph will continue to employ It. The cost of sending n tologr/vpbio / message will be bat llttlo moro than that of send ing an Immediate-delivery letter. The day ratoa for sending twenty words from Mow York to Chlojgo are but twenty- five cents , whllo tbo night rates for tbo same number of words nra only fifteen cents. Although much hai bt on done for the benefit of people living in largo towns In matter of collecting and delivering postal matter , nothing has been attempted for the benefit of those living In the country. The postoflico department has ioitnd that it pays to collect letters and papers from boxes distributed through large townr. The experiment of collecting thorn from boxoa placed near country churches , school houses , groceries , and at the cross ings of publlo roads lias not bp.cn tried. It might pay by Increasing the amount of matter sent through the malls. It would certainly bo of graat advantage to paoplo living in the country. lli < iv Senator I'liunO Caught tlio Smallpox. Cincinnati Commercial Gazotto. Coming into Washington , abont the fint mun I chanced to meet was Senator Plumb , of Kansas. The senator's foco is pitted from the effect of smallpox , though not to the extent of disfigurement , 1 will tell you how hocimo by these marks , and in doing so I will ttllyou n tale of rare heroism as it was told mo by an old Kansas man who was personally cognl- zint of the facts. Msny years ago , when Plwmb had juet come to Kanais from Ohio and settled at Emporls , ho was poor and struggling for a living , as wcro most of the ether plo- neois about him. OJQ day ho drcvo to Lawrence with a load of produce. On his way ho stopped at a llttlo town to feed his team , and while there ho learned that some Ohio people bad been thcro looking for a place to locate , and bad patscd on , leaving ono of their number behind who had been stricken down with smallpox. Some of the town people had carriid the sick man out of town to a shod , and left him there alono. PJucub sent his load of produce on , acd went to work to find some ono to take ciro of the man If It was found that ho was still alive. Ho found at last a man and bis wife living some dlatanca from there who had had tbo dlaaato , and agreed to take the Invalid for good pay. PJttmb then could got no team with which to trantfer the tick man , and finally , in desperation , seizad ono that was hitched in i front of the s oro. He got away a shoit distance when ho was overtaken and tbo team taken away. Finally , after persistent cfLrt and pleading , and bitter denunciation of the people , ho obtained a team and drove to the shed and took the poor plaguo-etrlcken creature , dying alone of bis disgusting disease. In his arme , and drove with him to the homo Dolecttd. Ho lofc all the monry ho bad , and promised moro when Lo could get it for the rae of the man If ho lived , and ils burial if ho died. Then ho wont on down to Emporla and jad tha small-pox himself , and caaio veiy near giving his life as the sacrlficn for tbat of tbo poor alrsbgor whoso life he laved. That is the story of how Senator Plumb's face cimo to bj pock marked. STATE STJPUKRI13 COURT. DECISIONS HINDERED SE1T. 15x11. Liwaon vs , Gibson , Appeal from Lancaster County. Reversed and remanded.

A Rid Bond ( Washington tonltory ) correspondent cays that when the census of Rod Bend waa taken last tuonth it was found that there was a population of 378 , Jnsluding 293 males , CO married women , 1 widow engaged , 2 maids engaged and the rest children. More than 200 of the mon are b&ohelors.ranglng from 25 to 50. Rod Bend Is some dUtsuce from a rill- 0 road , and it hss been a very difficult t matter to got young women to locate 1 theru. Most of the girls who cemo ( nto 1t 1n this region stop at Yaklma , or go thence t to the larger towns south of hero. A When the school honto was built the Atl directors advertised in various terrltotial 1 papers for a teacher , nnd the first one sl who presented hureelf was employed. She sltl slV had not been at the desk more than a tl fortnight before she was married to a tlh etoro-koeper , named Elveraon , who was about the best looking young man In the town. She rpalgned herplaco , bnt can- sontod to servo until her successor ar- D1 rlvcd.

Ouco again Iho place was filled , and ot "I thing * wtmt along smoothly for a awhile , tr dbout that time McGinn , the Uvtrn- trPi Pi oepsr , Imported a servant girl from 01 Portland , aud put her at work iu his 01rt dtcben at a Hilary of $8 per weok. Mrs , 01 McGinn was not very lusty , and her hns- 01ni jind found that the only way In which nitt ; keeping hotel wan possible was for him to ttw ttP bavo iflhiont female help.

The Idea was Accepted ; but , Joaring that the conditions m'ght ' make It i'upojtiblo for them to get women Into the town , they * ald nothing about them to the ona trlth whom thry opaued negbliitloiu. She came on , tturl after deciding to take the place , was liformod of the contract she would have to sign. To this she Indlg- nantlo jcfuacd to aocodo.

The committsomon looked at ono another to see if anybocy was weakening , but no ono appeared to bo willing to ijlTo ir , ; to it was decided that aho wonld bavo to go. Thii partlmtiar girl was young and vivacious , nnd when aho starlid off with Sohool Dlractor Boobo for Yaklma the whole town wlihed she would stay. An hour later Boebe drove Into town with tbo girl still In his wagon , and to the people who gathered arouud' the vehicle with questions , he- said : "Tho fact Is wo'vo docldod to got married. She didn't want to go back , and I didn't want to have her go. " Everybody felt that Boobo had pVod roots on ovotybsdy else , but there -aa nothl-g to say. At the next msotlit , of the committee , which Baobo did not at tend , Mr. Elder again had an Idea which ho wanted to submit.

THE .UT OB1 Somctlilns about tlio Jtachtiio Tlmt FromlsCG to Rcvolnlonlzo Pen- rnanBblp The typo-writer Is generally supposed to boa machine of recent invention , but it really dates ns far back ai 1714 One Henry Mill obtained In that year In Eng land a patent for a device that would "write In printed characters , ono at a tlmo and ono after the other. " There Is no description of his devlco to ba had now , bat it is no doubt true that Mill's invention was the parent of the present type-writer. The idea sdems io bavo lain durtnant for over ono hundred years , when it was taken np again by vaiious Inventors , who sought at snudry tinea to embody It In a machine that would work sttisfaotorlly , but apparently without success until 1807 , when a firm In Mil waukee made a type-writer tlut was act ually used. Improvements wcro made from tlmo to tlmo , each ono loidlrg to another , when the Remingtons took Cold of it and pro duced the standard machine that Is now sold by the thousand all ever the world. To inch perfection has the machine boon brought that even the meat detailed &nd intricate statements , containing ccilnmn after column of figures , on ba readily made with it , and in a neat aud bcalncaa- llko form that la impossible with the pen of the average writer. Its use has open ed a field for women who have to earn their living that never existed beforo. Thry are naturally expert and eklllful In nslng tbo fiogots , and they readily learn to : usa the type-writer with great rpoed. A number of school ] have added it to their rjjnhr COUHO , and young men who learn ( to uao It find it far easier to obtain situations.
