Monday.....................May 6, 1889 R 0 THE wires are all down west of here, indicating a severe storm in the mountains. Much interruption has been caused East. It extends east as far as the Utah line, and from the fact that this office Jost all the wires Cheyenne it would indicate that the gtorm rages fiercely in that quarter. The GA- ZETTE'S readers can forego the pleasure of reading the latest tele- graphic news under the circum- stances. A RAILROAD is about to be built from Jerusalem to Jaffa, on the Mediterranean, which begins to look as though the millennium was about to be ushered in. Jerusa- lem has lain in the shadow of decay for many centuries, and all efforts to restore something of its ancient glory have failed. But the loco- motive will change it all. All the ancient places will be startled 'by its whistle, and its coming wi'l bring to the city a resurrection. The Sultan should be careful how he permits the iron evangel to be- gin a reformation in bis domains. The Salt Lake Tribune says that savage tribes and ancient super- stitious alike, melt away before the hot breath of steam. And when it shall be introduced into lands where miracles were once formed, there is liable to -come other miracles. The sepulcher of a world that has been dead since the time of the Crusades is liable to have the stone rolled away from its door, and from the mould 8 new-born civilizatiou step forth It is a big thing to sound the call of the locomotive in the shade o Calvary. Tax Salt Like Tribune wishes that the Treasury Department or Secretary Rusk of the Agricultural Department would send to the connty Postmasters of the great agricultural regions of the East, to one Postmaster in each county, a circular containing the following questions, wiUi a request that the replies be filled in: (1) What are the average prices of he best 'arms in your county (2) What were the prices of the same lauds sixteen and twelve and six years ago (.8) What is (he average price of wheat, corn, butter and pork in vour county? (4) What were the prices of the same articles sixteen and twelve and six years ago (5) Of the mortgages on farming laud recorded in your county six- teen years ago, what proportion asve since been paid We hold that the answers to ;bose questions would establish that the an increase of 50 per cent, in the number of consumers in the coun- been in the exact ratio that silver has declined, and that no cause can be assigned for such decline, except the demone- tization of silver and the war made upon it by the interest gather- ers and their newspapers. If this could be established by the figures, if those figures corresponded from the Mohawk to the Platte Valley, it seems to us the people at large, if not the "statesman" of the cenu- try, would make us a demand for justice, that Congress would hasten to get out of the way of the cyclone. The truth is that the great producing host is being swindled out of 83 per which includes about all the profits their work. THE SACRAMENTO RACES. MB. WINDOM in politely request- ing the resignation of a Treasury official who happened to be a Dem- ocrat, said to him that he hac heard many compliment? paid him in regard co the discharge of his official duties, and added, very candidly, were your politics dif- ferent I should be pleased to have you remain in the department. You can, of course, appreciate the fact that it would be bad politics to retain yon while so many faith- ful Republicans are knocking at our party's door." Mr. is plain and frank and minces no words. He doesn't attempt to conceal his real purpose under such glittering generalities as "public but bluntly says that he wants the oflice for a "faithful Republican.'' THE Sacramento Bee hits the nail on the head in the following: "The physicians in this State should be forced to write their perscriptions in English, and the druggists should be compelled to mark all their bottles in plain En- glish terms. A young and nn- scbolarly boy rises suddenly from the position of general sweeper and messenger to be a pharmaceu- tist, with the same privilege to kill by mistake as his boss. These ignoranamuses can do enough damage in their own language, and if men, women and children are to be murdered, they prefer to have it done in good, plain, common Anglo-Saxon. WHEN General Washington was making his' triumphal entry up Broadway an infant -was raised above the crowd by his parents, who requested the President-elect to bestow his name upon him. To this the General readily consented. When the baby became a man he was known on two continents as Washington Irving. RATHEB than permit convict labor to interfere with free labor the State of New York pays 000 annually for the support of her State Penitentiary. TRUCKEE scandal-mongers are rolling some sweet morsels under their tongues. NATIVES OF OKLAHOMA. The Whole Country Pretty Well Occupied. A Washington special says: The Oklahoma says a retired army officer, will find the whole country occupied when they get there and they will have a sweet time fight- ing for possession. The first ant strongest tenant is the skunk. Tlie> are there thousands, o them. When I was at Dodge City the Indians used to kill them in season and sell the pelts which were brough to Dodge City by the traders in bales by the wagon load It will be years before a chicken can be raised in Oklahoma. Next come the bed bugs. They are a thousanf tiroes worse than the sand flies and are indigenous to the country. The soil is full of them. Go into a corn field and turn down the husks of the corn in September and they will scurry out by the score. I pity the wornni who go there. Some of theOkldbomt country down toward Texas is very good land, well weatered and fertile hut up through the Cherokee outlet i is as dry as Western Kansas and a. worthless.

The Senate committee to investigate fhe alleged ownerihip by Canadian corporations and capital of American roads, reassembled this morning The first witness was Commissioner Albeit Fink, Chairman of tne Trunk Line Association, which he expressed was an association to arrange joint competitive tariffs to secure a uniform- ity in charges and class, and to main- tain established tariffs. Fink de- scribed the Grand Trunk railroad ant its branches as far as he knew. As a trunk line, it ran from Chicago to Portland, Maine. Fink said the Canada Southern wa1 leased by the Michigan Central. He acknowledged the Grand Trunk ha< differential rates for New Kngland business because its road was a him dred miles longer. Senator Cullom Is your organiz- ation to-day practically the same as before the 'passage of the interstate commerce law Commissioner Fink "In everything except that we no longer divide earn ings or direct freight." Cnlloni "Have yon any sngges tions as to an amendment to the Inter State law The. difficutly is to cove the matter of management by law The Inter-State Commiision shonl have discretion to deal with the ques tion in certain cases."
