IT is bad enough whotr a car of tnintcc meat is about to bo offered for sale by r leading packing company and stoppcc only by the Intervention of the meat in spoctor. It is about time that in addi tion to the confiscation of tlio unfit food fit that the parties offering it for sale be Bubjeot'toa heavy fine. A iinJlctiLOirs proposition evolved in the fertile brain of one of our cotompo raries is the abolition of all pcrsoiia' tax. This brilliant genius docs nol know that our state constitution o.v prcssly requires the taxation of al ! 'property ' , real or personal. Perhaps'he is able to amend the constitution by v city ordinance. IT is significant that England is now building largo canals ) between her trade Centers , Liverpool and Manchester ant 'Liverpool and Birmingham. In this I country canal building is said to be out of date and represents little more than r & waste of money. But tlio activity ol "English capitalists in extending thoii jnternal water ways in a thickly popu lated region is a strong argument ir favor of maintaining that cheap means Of transportation oven in America. A BlOgT peculiar state of affairs exist ; ( n East St. Louis. In years gone ly that town kept on borrowing money foi rjniblio improvements with the cxpccta tion that in the future it would bo one ol the metropolitan cities of the west i But instead of growing East St. Louis 'lias ' dwindled dbwn to a btraggllng vil Ingo while its indebtedness has swollct to enormous proportions. In additioi to the heavy Interest on the principal n judgment of several hundred thousaut dollars is pondintr owing to a recent decision cision of the courts. To moot thes < nccrulng obligations , a special levy o 18 per cent on the taxable property ii necessary. Such a levy would rosul in virtual confiscation of the homos ol the poorer classes. The only way on of the dilemma seems to bo for the clti to go into voluntary bankruptcy ani through a receiver make a sottlomoul with Its creditors. East St. Louis pre sents a sad example of reckless dis counting of futures. E is a very favorable promlsi that the lockout In the Iron trade wil 1)0 of short duration. Thus far nine teen firms , including some of the largcs 'mills ' in the country , have signed th scale submitted by the Amalgamated as Boclntlon , and It is not doubted that mbs Of the othora will promptly follow , s that very likely before the end of th 'present month the largo majority of th wills will again bo in , nctlvo operation Thl&-is an outlook upon which all partic 'in ' Interest are to bo congratulated , and i should bo remarked that the favorabl change from the very threatening Bltun tion o ! ten days ago Is the rosult-of judl clous mutual concessions. It woul have boon a Tory serious matter if nl attempts to effect a soltlomciU ha failed. The closing of factories thu employ ever one hundred thousand worli ingmoii would have been well nigh national disaster. There Is nowrcasor able nssuninco that the great iron ir dustry of the country-will have nnothc your of prosperity. Ilcscrvo The arrest of several alleged m m- > crs of the Brotherhood" Lo'coitiotlvo Lhiglnoers , on the charge ? of being ou- jagcd In a plot to damage and destroy .he propcrty.of the Burllilgton .railroad company by the use of dynamite , is ) oing commented upon by the rtcwa- papers of Chicago and elsewhere in a way calculated to impre&s the jiublia with the belief that Ihcro ban really ) ccn such a plot , nnd that the men nr- cstcd are guilty. The manager of the Jurlington has not been sparing of effort to oncdurngo this impression , and .0 involve the officials of the in-olhcr- iood in the alleged conspiracy. This tray of prejudging the men under arrest , nnd nf attempting to criminate with thorn men whose character should juard them against the slightest sus- ( ) icion of giving any countenance to Muidulisin nud anarchist methods in any form , w'ill bo cOlidcmncd by all fair- minded people. It Is unquestionably Lrue that the clicumstanccs appear tc jo somewhat against ono or two of the arrested men , but they may bo able to easily clear these awny when they are brought to trial. As to the officials of Lho brotherhood whom it is sought to implicate , they mo3t pointedly and vig orously deny having any knowledge eli ( i plot of the character alleged , tuid as- Sicrl that they have always been opposed to vietloneo. In the prc&cnt aspect of the matter their statements are at loa-st , xs worthy of regard as those of the manager of the Burlington , who lias an obvious motive iu malting hi-- allegations as > sweeping as ho dare to. Prompted by detecthes , who o budinui'- it is to. present matters'in the \\orst possible light , it is not dlfllcult to un derstand that the Burlington manager should conclude , even if ho were not quite willing to do so , that the cntiic brotherhood of locomotive engineers , from Chief Arthur to the la > > t imnibci admitted , was iu a great conspiracy tc destroy the property under his control. People who are dibpo cd to Ifo fail nnd just will reserve judgment regard ing this matter until it bus been ju dicially iiucsllgatcd , and especially ill they discredit until disproved all allegations involving the brotherhood ns an organization or any of its trusted olllcials. It is possible , and nol alto gather improbable , that a judicial sift ing will show that the alleged plot i' more of a detective than a dynamite conspiracy. The Colored Voter anil Democracy. The democratic party will rocciie tin votc-s of spmo colored men next Novcin bor. There arc voters among the race enfranchised by the republican parti who refu&c to acknowledge the debt o gratitude they owe to that parly , aiu alnliato with the political organi/.alioi that has never been others iso. than un friendly to the negro as a race. Those who do this are not a very numorou' body , nnd they are for the moit par fellows who want olllco. The fact tha1 the present administration has retaiuci a few colored men in public positions and appointed u few others to places ii the ground upon which these colored democrats rest their professed faith ii the friendly disposition of the demo cratio party toward their race and theii hope of some time or other receiving the reward of their support of deinoc racy. These colored democrats are alrcndi making themselves somewhat conspic uous. They are scon bobbing up here and there with announcements of theii adhesion to democracy. A few colorct clubs have boon organized to labor foi the democratic cause. Unquestionably they will not fail to receive hearty on courngcmont from the party managers They may not bo allowed , to dip deeply into the campaign funds , but there wil bo no lack of promises to stimulate thofi 7eal. It is not Improbable that thoj will make some converts , strange as i is that any colored man of fair intolli gpnco should vote the democratic ticket The colored voter who allies himscl with the democracy is not pnly n. po lltlcal ingralo , but ho docs a wrong l < his entire race. The moral effect of hii conduct , even if it has no other consc quonco , is damaging to the Cause in be half of the rights of his race , denied i ! in nearly .one-third of the slates of the union. The colored man who espouse ; democracy , thereby condones , so far in ho is concerned , the outrages that have been CQinmltted against his people it the south , constituting one of the mosl repellant chapters In American politi cal history. Instead ot the protcsl which every colored man in the natloi should utter , against the wiongs ant abuses inflicted upon his race in tin south , each ono who goes into the dem ocratic camj ) virtually acquits the do mooracy of all responsibility for its re fusiil to do justice under the constitutioi and laws to the negro. IIo aids the on courngemont of such outrages us withh the present your the country was givoi an example of ut Jackson , Mis > ,3. , when an organization headed and managoi by democratic federal officials kop every colored voter away from the polls The negroes who by their labor un willingly helped the confederacy , dii less to the Injury of their race than I being done by those who are at thl time supporting the democratic part } dominated ns it is by its southern wing The colored voter who believe that the democracy can ever bocoln sincerely friopdly to his race , or wil ever voluntarily concede its politico rights , is the victim of delusion. Th character , traditions nud policy of thn party forbid its ever willingly doin , justice to the negro or feeling any lion ogt concern for his interests or welfare There is nothing more certain thai that the permanent ascendency of lh democratic party In the governmon would mean the destruction of th political right given the negro "by tl. fifteenth amendment , which is 1101 practically a dead letter' in every soutli crn state. Didn't Know it AViiH Our amiable neighbor on lower Ins has a happy faculty of opening ii mouth at the wrong tlmo anU puttlu its foot in. Its attack on County Al torney Slmoral , over the shoulder * c Commissioner Mount , and .Its loud cal for Mr. Simeral to push to the wall th pifrchrtsew of'the county pool- farm lot : hits its foremost champion , Council man Ilasoall square between the eyes. If our viudictlvo ncighboi \vio ) has a bone lo pick with the count ; attorney because th6 latter has 1 > C ! employed In a suit against it , hud taken the trouble tq look into the records , 1 | would have discovered that Isaac S Hnscall is .the principal delinquent ii the county poor farm lots. Mr. Unseal only paid twenty-live dollars apiece or most of these lota and might bo made to forfeit what ho has paid , but we doubt whether Mr. Slmoral , or anj olhor attorney , could compel him It plank down the casli for deferred paj incuts unless ho was disposcel to do so The truth of the matter is that most o the purchasers of these lots cxpcctee to realize n handsome profit 01 them without investing their owi : money. The trivial payment which UK commissioners1 accepted as first payment mont was a bait to spoculatora , and this short-sighted policy is chiefly respon sible for the shortage in the count ] ticnsury from these stiles. Wo hope Mr. Hascall will sot out neighbor right , in the interest of liar mony. The public will accept an apol ogy when advised that the \crdnn cadet didn't know it was loaded. Clerical Cramps. Douglas county Iris boon rather un fortunate in several of its ) county clerks who cither regarded the foes taken bj themselves as their own , or else laborei under hereditary . mlsundcrstandinj with regard to what part of the motile : collected by them belonged to then and what belonged to the county This has been a peculiar abcrratioi ever since Mr. Louis S. Rued vticatot the olllcc. Mr. Rood never had an.- ) trouble in ascertaining what part ot tin funds collected by him were his owi and what belonged to the county , am his > neces3or ought not to have hud. The fact that one of thcso clerkwhe was notoriously an emboslcr was givoi immunity from criminal prosecution be causes ha was prostrated by cramp colic , superinduced by fright , has had a tend cnisy to prolong this habitual misunder standing of the law in the clerk's olllcc Tlio Motionless Motor.

A royal feather cloak from the Sand wich is - in Itjlands sin-cad out fan-shaped a cns > e > in the National inujoum , says the Washington Star. This clo.ik is com puted to have cost in labor $1,000,000 , Jn the days when a Hawaiian bollc wanted little clothing , but wanted thai gorgeously colored , this clonk or mantle would have boon considered of more value , ivsthoUcUly : and intrinsically , than a shipload of Worth costumes , nnd its happy possessor" might truly bii wild lo bo in high feather. Since the natives hnvo adopted wide trouserslawn-tennis shirts and four-in-hand tics , its value lies chielly in the traditions : that surround it. The mantle , which is semi-circular , is four feet loner or deep , and it'is Hi feet wide at the bottom , and 23 inches at the top whore it goes around tlto neck. The entire outer surface is made of feathers of fine texture , giving the whole the appear ance of plusli. The prevailing colors are rod anel yellow or orange. The body is decorated with largo figures , crc&cont-slmpcd , of either red or yellow feathers. The upper and lateral bor ders are corded and decorated with alternate tufts of reel , black and yellow feathers. The foundation is a network of elena , or native hemp , and to it are attached by fine thread of tho.samo material the feathers of fine birds found ejnly in the Hawaiian island , and very rare thcro. Recent writers have dbclared that the bird is now extinct. The fcnthort are woven in so as to lap each each other and lie flat , forming a smooth plush-like surfaeic. Thu inner surface is witlwut lining anel shows the elena net work and Iho ejuill ends of the feath ers. The con ! of the upper margin it prolonged so as to nerve as u fastening nt the throat. The yellow feathers , arc tained fi'om tlio Oo Uho and ol or , , as- stated , are of great valve , as the bird is rare , very shy , and difficult to capture , and it hasbut. . n very small tuft of thc c feathers ) upon each shoulder. The black feathers are from the head and back ol the s.imo bird its general plumage bo- infr a glossy black.The Oo is caupht alive by moans qf bird lime ; the yellow feathers are then plucked and tlio bird released. The reel feather * are from the body and nock of the drcpanis coc- cinoa , tlio most abundant birds of the S.mdwhich Islands. The Hawaiian Spectator , a newspaper published in 1830 , refers to. this , or a similar mantle , as follows : "Knwkeauli has tho'Mams , or feather war cloak oi - his father , Ta-Moha-Moha.- was not complctod'untll his reign , having occu pied oightjn-ecoditigoncsin its fabrica tion.

' A bunch of the yellow feathers called hulu was received by the king from hii subjects in payment of a poll-tax , and it required many years to collect thu material and niuuufacturc ono of these mantles.

In tboso days it was not uncommon to see or bear of sum mitry vengeance overtaking a culprit , but of late years all UHMO relics of ' 19 have disappeared. Still somoUitng of n similar imturooccurrod during tile noon hour on Market street tlio otbor day which caiibcd as much oxcitcmont for the moment as an old-time lynching. It was the spectacle of \\oman beating another \\OIUIIH with a whip. The li'ily wlio received the castigatioiij Miss Li/- zio Ryan , was walking down Market falreot with her t > i ter when the whip- wieliler , Mrs. C.r. .

She wa-s too much .surprised and frightfncd to knew what to do , but her sister , MKs Ellen Ttynn , with more iirosonce of mind , told'her to go into a store , which she did , with tlio infuriated woman following her. ] toforu the pioprictor or the hand some young lady who presides behind the counters onuld interfere in Miss liyan's behalf , Mrs. Arlington luul dealt her ti coui > lo more rebounding Inshos \\ith the whip.

MiHb Uyuii was conducted to the dressing.room in the rear and allowed to recover comppsure before she wont home. Mit.4 I'Mlen TJynn , thq sihter of the lady assaulted , told the following story of the trouble : "My trouble , " she said , "was keeping company with Mr. Arlington for over two years before ho married this woman , whoso name was Mrs. Tyler. They wore engaged to bo married , but fo'r reaf-oiiH best known to ourselves the en gagement = i bioken on. Mr. Arling ton then married Mrs. Tyler , and my sister saw no more of him. Wo always Considered Mr. Arlington a perfect goii- tleman and liked him very much. This , morning Mrs. Arlington wont down to our uncle's place and complained that my bibter was trying to get her. husband nwny from her. Ho told her that ho did not think it po-siblo , but that he would see about it , and told her to call and boo him again. She went away without making any throats , but he thought she had the whip in her hand at Ihe time. Of collide wo are at a UMS to know "why she should have at tacked my sKtor , but it must have been that she thought Unit ho was paying at tention to my &ihter and it iniide her jealous.

The bridge will probably bo ovorbno hundred loot above thosur face of the water at high tide , so that there will bo no interference with navi gation. To accomplish this will noccbiitato a high grade on either side of the straits , probably above fifty feet to the'mile. . The length of the bridge will be between three thousand live hundred and four thous and feet , and there will bo Bovoral solid piers to construct. Although this bridge may not bo built in the time specified it will soon become a matter of necessity with the Southern Pacific com pany and must bo constructed before long. Trafllo was never so heavy on the transfer boat , Solano , as it is at present , and the increase in business by tlio now line into the Sonoma Valley docs not tend to relieve the strain , as may well bo supposed. Dy the construction of the bridge the work of handling the business of the Sauramonto division will bo greatly reduced. Bolter time will bo mudo , as the long waits for the transfer boat will bo avoided and the transfer it self will be entirely obviated. With this bridge and the now double track now in course of construction between this city , and Port Uostn , the railroad company' will have splendid facilities. VANIHJIIM ) ri'N.Ib. Spiritual circles are still agitated by thodoinntoriuli/.ation of the ftmdb which ox-Collector S. B. Clurko is said to have been intrusted with. Dr. Louis Sclilos- singer , the chief critic of the ox-collec tor , has loft the encampncnt on the other side of UIQ bay , whore Clarke Is now handling the funds. Dr. Schlcs- blugor was found at his olllco on Market btrcet yesterday. Ho was angry and warm , and was in the act of unpacking a case of booka and papers which , until a few hours provioualy , had constituted the stock in trade of his branch business on the camp grounds. The criticised spiritualist , when scon at Oalclund , .said : "My religion teaches mo not to re taliate In a vindictive spirit. All will bo well in time. " In reply to other questions ho said : "My bonds are good , and a day has boon sot when all nccoilnts will bo handed ovor. That will bo some time in August of thirf year. " President J. C. Steele said : "Tho alTnir is much to be regretted , but is in no way the concern of the camp-moot ing Associates. The matter belongs to the Progressive Spiritualists. The name of S. B. Clark figuring promi nently upon the prospectus of the Camp- mooting Associates as treasurer , atten tion was drawn to the fact. Mr. Walker explained that Mr. Clark was induced to 'resign' a few days b'oforo the camp-mooting opened , and that olllco Ib-now in other hands , " A r.uif.H unviviiD. J. N. Dinwlddio was the plaintiff against Asa'Fisfc in a salt for$299 for , services rendered. Some years ago the dgfondnnt , according to Dlnwlddlo's fctory , met him on the street and bogged him , with tears in his eyes , to go homo with him ami got something to cat. The plalnlltY at that time was a very poor but houest man. lie was also very hungry. With , great reluctance ho ac cepted 1'lsk's oiler , went to his hou , o and loaded up on a fairly good dinner. Then Dlnwiddio , who could get no work , was importuned by defendant to stay around and do odd jobs about the house. After sonjo consideration ho did that. Flsk pleaded with him to ac cept bomo clothes , his own being quite shabby. Dlnwidttio drew the line at clothes for a while , but finally , at Flsk 'a urgent request , cut It and took the gar ments As the years rolled by Flsk and Dinwlddio had some Itttlo quarrels , caused by the hitter's refusal to take ' anything' for the services ho rendered nbout the house. The men came to blows after awhile , mid a few days ago Dinwiddle was sent to the county jail forstrlklnga man who had Interforrod in ono of the numerous disagreomonty. Dlnwiddio was taken from his cell to testify iu the suit. He got a mouthful of fresh air. but lost the case. AN HX-ACTOU'y 1'AI.T , . John Hall , an ox-actor nud formerly the dresser of William E.

Ho is a con firmed morphine and opium fiend , and during the pn t few months lias made himself a nuisance around the various theaters. A short time after ho was adjudged insane by the coinmibbionora Hall appeared at the box ollico of the Baldwin theater and asked the treas urer for a dollar , stating Unit ho had been declared insane and he wanted the money to pay his faro to Stockton. IIo explained tliat ho wanted to cure him self of his vices , and ho thought ho could got the best treatment at the asy lum , .so lip coaxed Mrs. Mary McConnell into making the complaint nguinst hiiiu which she did.

The complaint in a suit brought the other day by William A. Nygh for Wil liam G. Blunt against the Pacific Mail Steamship company gives publicity to a btory of a most revolting nature. Blunt , \\hoisaminor. claims $50 ,000 damages for the terrible suffering ho endured. Last March the boy took passage on ( he steamer Newport from Now York to this port. The vo.\ago to Aspinwull was uneventful , and the vessel made good time. At Abpinwnll ho was transferred to the cars of the Pacific Mail Steamship company and was taken to Panama , lie was then put on board the Acapulco , bound for San Francisco. A very short time after the vessel left port Hiuall-pox made its appearance among the passengers. Telegraph io dispatches to that ell cot wore published but none in this city know the heroic measures taken to prevent the spread of the terrible disease. Blunt says that when the steamer reached a desert island in the Pacific opposite Acapulco lie was forcibly taken from the ship with a number of stricken passengers ami placed on the island. lie had not been suffering from the disease and had given no bign of being infected. From April 1 1 to May 0 he had to remain With the binall-pox patients' , exposed to .the malady in itn worst forms. The weather was intensely warm during the time he remained on the island , and he had to ond'ire great hardships and suffered great mental anguish. This is a mo-it interesting suit , and has had no precedent in this city for some time. Caused the \Vnr of 1 I2 St. Nicholas for July : It happened in this wise : Two citizens of Provi dence. lv. 1. , fell into a most unseemly 'discussion on account of the lawless trcspassings of a pig owned by ono of them. The aggrieved party owned a very fine garden , in which it was his custom to spend his leisure hours , weed ing , grafting , and transplanting the llowei-b and vegetables in which ho de lighted. But often , as ho entered his garden in the evening , his cars would bo saluted with a grunt and a rustle , and the fat form of hN neighbor's pig might bo scon making a hasty flight from the garden in which it had been placidly rooting all day , In high dudgeon the gardener sought his neighbor and complained of the pig's frequent visits , declaring that a little time .spent in repairing the pig sty would restrain the pig's roving pro pensities. But to thib the owner of the pig responded that if hi neighbor would keep his rickety fences in proper repair , the pig might take its daily air ing without temptation , and the garden would not bo endangorfil. Repeated misdeeds on the part of the pig fanned the smouldering fires of dib- scnsiou into the flames of open hostility. At last the crisis camo. The owner of the garden , rising unusually curly ono morning , discovered the pig content edly munching the last of a line bed of tulip-bulbs. Flesh and blood could stand it no longer. Soi/.ing a pitckfork which lay near at hand , the outraged gnnlonor plunged its sharp tines into the hapless pig , and bore the body , thus fatally impaled , to the sty , \vhora it mot the gn/.o of its owner an hour or two later. Thereafter it was war to the knife between the two neighbors. Now , what had all this to do with the war of 181U' : ' The answer is simple. The two neighbors belonged to the political party known as the federalists. Through all the outrages that Great Britain inflicted upon the United States ; while seamen v.-oro being im pressed , Amsrlcan vessels stopped on the high seas , and while every possible indignity was being committed against the flag of the United States , the fed eralists remained friendly to Great Britain and contested every proposition for the declaration of war. But the democratic parly was eager for war , and as British oppression Do- came more unbearable the strength of the democratic. Increased. It BO hap- puncd that the election districtin which the two neighbors lived had been about equally divided between democrat' and federalists , but the latter party had always succeeded in carrying the elec tion. But in 1811 the owner of the gar den was a candidate for the legislature on the federalist ticket. His neighbor had always voted that ticket ; 'but now , with his mind filled with bitter recol lection of the death of his pig. ho cast his ballot for the democrat. When the ballots wore counted the democrat was found to bo elected by a majority of one , When the newly elected legislator took Jus boat , his first duty was to vote for a United States senator. Ho east his vote for the candidate of the demo- cats , who was tilbo elected by a majority of ono. When this senator took his ) lace in the United Stales senate lie i 'ound : the question of war with Great Britain pending , and after a long and bitter discussion It came to a vote. The democrat * vote for war , and the feder alists against JU As a result of the voting ing , war was declared again by a ma- jority.of ono vote. Vailed. ' Charles ifiwlnton , druggist In Imperial.
