THE SEA. OF ALGIERS.
,%h e Worl of Creatinga Great Inland
.l.. te to be Began Next Year.
Another great engineering work, ap-
parently, is on the eve of accomplish-
ment, one which- should transform Al-
geria and the north of Africa, and ex-
ert no inconsiderable influence on the
commerce of France-indeoil of the
whole civilized world. This the turn-
ing of the waters rf the :.]Jite-rracs nr
Into the desert of Algiers.formiug a gTeat
inland lake or gulf, or, to be more ea:-
acting. resto.irng that which existed
some twenty centuries ago. EM. Ron-
daire, the originator of theechimie, is a
captain on the French -taff. who made
the geography and cunnimrerc.l dev-el-p-
metit of Algiers his particular study.
In 1672 he reiulvedi tit c[ieplre
the country for himself, and as-
certain, if possible, what benefits,
commercial and political, would accrue
to France from opening up an inland
sea. Having obtained the necessary
furlough, with recommendations to the
Colonial authorities, he set out on his
mission, but his efforts were so poorly
seconded by them and they so exag-
geratedthe dangers and difficulties of
the work of exploration, that finally he
set out unescorted on a trip that was to
last thirteen months and be full of
vicissitudes. He was somewhat aided
at the outset by the discovery that
Captain Picot de Ste. Maria, on his
route of 1845, had proceeded on cor-
rect suppositions as to the inland sea,
so that the later explorer could con-
scientiously avail himself of the results
of his predecessor's journey. From
Gabes he pushed on to Biskra, 2_-4
miles distant, through untrieril:y
tribes, often suffering from want uf
food, water or shelter, but always tak-
ing observations and levels. From
Biskra he returned dirii:. to Algiers,
where his success was warmly ap-
plauded by General Chaanzy. and g'i'gi
to Paris he prepared, w-thb the
approval of the Minister of War,
a long, clear and valuable paper for the
Revue des Deux M,,i;l,. that attra-te-.
-much attention in the scientidii w,..rld.
The Government entered warmly nto
the scheme, and last year C(aptain
Roudaire was sent out to coniplete his
explorations, this time as a Apeiil
Commissioner of the Depart.Lment of
Public Instruction. After careful in-
vestigations and calculations veritied by
competent authorities, he find the
formation of the inland sc-a of Algeria,
with a length of 350 kilometre- anir a
breadth of 60, or, say, 210 by 36. nile.s,
to be not only feasible but most dtsir-
able. A formal report was ma-ie a
month ago ; another more extended
and accompanied by a map or, the s,:le
of 1-100.000 is shortly to be bl-ld, and
the work will probably be begun next
year. The Tunisian iovermnlent will
bear its share of the expensr-. -whikh
are estimated at from 0.01.10,1.10i) to
100.000,000 france.
THE CALEDONIA.
Reports of the Superintendent and
Secretary.
[Fron the San Fran&eico St.kii Fxiebir: I
At the recent meeting of the C':daldnia
Mining Company the following reports
were presented:
SUPERINTENDENT'S REPORT.
During the past year the re.'tion -f the
new pumping nd hoisting machinery at-
the new shaft has been conmpl-ted, and Lth
shaft sunk 730 feet to the lO115,l.t level.
Four twelve inch plungir pumps and one
twelve inch asking pumrp hare b-en put
in place, bob st tiin.s cut at the 41".' and
800 foot levels. and the station fr:.ui tihe
1150 foot lei-vl is nO.:w being mads. \iVe
have also put in and made ready fo.r uij a.
steam winch, for handling pumps, etc., in
the shaft, capable of handling 25 tons at
the end of a single line at the depth of
3,000 feet. For the last six months we
have had a Large body of water to contend
with in siukinr:, and hace had to raise
with pumps and tanks an average of not
less than 4-00 gallons of water per minute,
making sinking much slower than during
the first six months. A small engine and
set of saws have been put in the earrenter
shop, and one set of boiers remov',d fr.lu
the .old shaft, overbanrded and put in the
new shaft. At the .1. shift the incline
was sunk 88 feet, when water compelled
us to st.p sinking on the 4th of Septem-
ber, 1"75. since which no work has been
done at this shaft: I would recommend
Ihe machinery at the old w,..rli, be taken
down or stored, thie building rmn.:.vd and

heads shaved, be serving out a term in the
Missouri Penitentiary."
Representative Meade, who arrived at
Long Branch yesterday morning, states
that there is a misapprehension concern-
ing the rumor of his resignation as a
member of the Mongolian Commission.
It is his intention to serve, though he
greatly regrets the rumor of Representa-
tive Wilson's declination to serve as a
member of the commission, and trusts
that Wilson will reconsider his determi-
nation in view of the public importance
of the investigation proposed. This wish,
Meade believes, is shared by Page and
Kasson.
STATE NEWS.
The Eureka Sentinel says: It appears
that a genuine case of small-pox has at
last made its appearance in our midst.
At all events a yellow flag has been
thrown to the breeze on the hill west of
the County Hospital. The patient is said
to be a Mexican.
The Carson Appeal says: A list of del-
agates to the County Convention has been
agreed on by a caucus of some of the
leading Republicans of Carson precinct.
That list is made up of the following
names : W. H. Stevens, J. W. Haynie,
C. C. Atherton, Sam. C. Wright, E. R.
Elrod, John Sutherland, F. L. Flinn, J.
T. Preddy, Fred. Grinage, A. Lewis, H.
P. Phillips, A. B. Driesbach, Wm. B.
Farrell, E. B. Zabriskie and G. Gillson.
The project of .starting gas works here,
asay tihe P,.no Journal, meets the appro-
batit.l .f all. A capital stock of $25,000
iYi ajquired, and of this $20,000 is pledged
ilreidy, and- the rest will no doubt be
taken by a Reno gentleman. The stock
was divided in five shares of the par value
of $5,000 each. Mr. Elmore takes two
-hares, a Mokelumne Hill man one, and
the other two by Reno capital. Matters
will be consummated either to-day or
Tuesday, and after an examination of
the works in some of the California
towns using this gas, active preparations
will commence.

DISTRESS IN GILT IBTTONS.

We are now told that the retrench-
ment legislation in the House has been
attended with disgraceful results."
Said disgraceful results are the reducing
of the salaries of a number of naval offi-
cers, who for years have been drawing
good pay, and performing in return no
service to the country which has paid
them.
We are told by the anonymous poli-
tician, who compiles the Eastern tele-
graphic dispatches, that many of these
men served gallantly in the war of the
rebellion, and that, therefore, it is dis-
graceful and cruel to cut down their
salaries. Do the services of these able-
bodied sporters of gold-lace entitle
them to be life-long pensioners upon
the country to the extent of $2,000 or
$3,000 per annum each ? How many
brave sailors and soldiers are there, who
not only risked their lives as much as
these well-salaried officers, but who en-
dured privations which those officers
never endured, and yet who now have
to work for their living, and have had
to do it ever since the war
closed? If these officers be dis-
abled by wounds or long ser-
vice there are such things as pen-
sions, and far more comfortable pen-
sions than are doled out to the poor
boys in blue who lost health and limb
where the officers gained rank and
honor. Besides, what is the use of
our navy, as at present constituted?
Why should the country pay for scores
of "gallant officers" who cannot hit a
target at 1,500 yards in 200 shots?
Better a few efficient officers than the
present crowd of hall-room beauties and
Washington loungers, who can neither
sail a ship nor lay a gun, and whose
time is passed between showing their
gold lace to the ladies, and bullying the
unfortunate men whom an unkind
Providence has placed under their com-
mand.
If the retrenchment reduces some
lieutenants to "beggary," let those
"bteftenants find some more profitable
occupation than pacing the quarterdeck
of one of Robeson's rotten ships. Let
them start in and earn a living for
themselves. The industrious men of
the country have been earning a living
for their for a good many years.

A PRETTY WELL-FOINDIED "lPRE-
TENSE."
The sole pretense of Governor Tilden to be a
reformer rests upon tried he re e has made in
the prosecution of the canal ring of New York.
Enterprise.
Tilden's prosecution of the New York
canal ring was no pretense, and even
had he no other claim to the title of
reformer," it would be enough to give
him the right to that title.
Two years ajo the State of New
York was spending for extraordinary
repairs" on the canals at the rate of
$2,000,000 per annum. In the year
beginning September 1, 1874, it had to
expend $1,898,144. For five years be-
fore, the State had been spending money
at the rate of $3,000,000 for unneces-
sary outlays upon its canals. This
moneywas appropriated in the interests
of the canal ring, under bills passed by
legislatures which the canal ring owned;
signed by governors who were under
the influence of the ring, and spent by
officers whom the ring nominated. By
Governor Tilden's reforms, the tax for
extraordinary repairs in the current
year was reduced to nothing, and re-
ductions on canal appropriations were
made in other directions, amounting to
$1,033,294. In all, the State spent, in
1875, $2,931,418 less for canal purposes
than in 1874. Governor Tilden claimed
in his canal message that this reduction
could be made without injuring the
canals. The apologists of the Ring, of
course, claimed that it could not. State
Engineer Van Buren recently reported
upon the subject, and showed conclu-
sively that Governor Tilden was right.
The canal is in better condition, with
less money, than ever before.

YESTERDAY Colonel Wood, the tal-
ented editor of the Enterprise, chilled
the marrow in the bones of our citizens
by an account of a fearful wind-storm
which he seems to have encountered on
the previous evening. It was "gloomy
as was the Crow scout who reported
the overthrow of Custer's command."
It carried "the news of some descend-
ing glacier from, perhaps, the northern
slope of St. Elias, which carried with ii
a wreck of rock and earth and piled ups
rugged talus at the mountain's base.'
"The tones were vengeful, as though in
anger that a few days of sunshine had
been vouchsafed to us." While uj
in British Columbia that breeze
"froze into silence some water-fallh
or heaped up his snows upon
some forest there until strong bought
quaked and the wild beasts sought
their lairs." We did not notice any


more than a mild zephyr, such as Vir
ginia has every week or two; but their
is a great difference in the perceptive
faculties of two men, when one has onl:
to hold his hat on and the other doe
not know what the devilto do to fill u:
an editorial column.

fMCHAEL 0. KER:, in departing thi
life, has left behind him a host c
friends, without regard to politics, an
a record without a stain. The attack
made upon his reputation during th
recent session of Congress left no ble
upon his fair fame. His ready au
convincing defense merely served t
contrast with the shuffling and tard
defenses of the many who, in that Con
gress, found their 'political and socir
Waterloo. Mr. Kerr was born no:
Titusville, in Crawford county, Penu
sylvania, March 15, 1827. He educate

which sorely need his attention in con-

SIGEL FIGHTS WMIT TILDEN. D
In a recent interview with a reporter
for the New York ]JTrald General y
Frank Sigel spoke as follows : C
I firmly believe that he iaritofth e Gcr- -
man people of America will favor the election
of Governor Tilden to the I'residency, not be-
cause they know much of Governor Tilden or hiis a
interests or policy, but because they arc detfe-
mined to have a change of administration. The 0
German citizens of the United Statec have al- ar
ways been Democrats by instinct, but they In
have acted as Reputlcans because they hatWd \
slavery. They are not prohibitionists or pro- u
tetionists. I of course, mean prohibition t
in a commercial sense. Neither are they abso-
lut ly in favor of free trade, because that is A
impossible under present circumntahcos, but o
rhev are for a reduction of the great number of se
articles now paying luty, and-for a greater u
equalization in the duties on-'iereot articles, i
because prohibitions of this kind produce mo-
nopolies. The Germans, also, do not believe in rL
our system of internal taxation, because it I
throws the bulk of the taxes on a few branches b
,if business and makstaes t hus specified ex- or
orbitant. This seems to thile Germans very w
unjust, and even outrageous. e
There are about 550,000 or 600,000 German e
voters in the United Stites. Tis s about tie
number of those who are of the German speak- a
ilg race, of German parents and who move in W
one direction with a German aim or German g"
proclivities. And I think the majority of these tI
votes will be thrown for Tilden. Of course the u
number might be increased by those who would
come naturally in contact with the Germans
or might be influenced by them in daily "
business. The Germans are a very peculiar a
kind of people, you must recollect; if they b
have an opinion they go for it. As to h
Carl Schmurz, I can't say what his follow-
ing will be. I know that if the German
people make up their minds, as they will in a
this contest, that they will follow their own tI
opinions and not the opinions or professions of c
their leaders. Furthermore, the Germans ii
always follow their own interests-I mean their \
material interests-aud I know that they are a
very skeptical as to politics and politicians.
They do not think politicians to be trustworthy, a
as I understand them. There are many leading t
Germans who have declared for Tilden. Freder- e
ick Haussarek, in the West, is a man of very t
great talents. He is not known so much in the t
East. Haussarek was a warm supporter of s
Abralham Lincoln when he ran for the Pres- b
idency. Haussarek is ardent in his support of
Mr. Tilden. Ex-Gov. Koerner, of Illinois, was for t
Lincoln warmly, He is now for Tilden. lie r
was formerly, also, on Fremnnt's staff. Judge h
Stallo, of Cincinnati, one of the most honest of '
men, was for Lincoln. He is a man of powerful b
influence. Judge Stallo is now for Tilden.
umnele, of Ohio, is also a man of great infill-
ence, and he is nomV supporting Tilden among a
our German people. Again I assert that the i
German people want a revival of trade, they d
want peace, they want a change ; they don't
trust this Administlation, and this thing has to f
be ended-this system of keeping up antugecn-
isms between the two races, black and white, in
the Soulh. It must be ended once and for all h
in this coming election.

THE Lyon County Times to-day com-
mits a piece of very stupid and very t
serious injustice. It says, editorially :
The defalcation of the Coroner and Public 1
Administrator of Storey countyis a lesson to
voters which should not be allowed to pass un-
heeded C. M. Mayer, a barber, was consti-
tuted that officer by the ballots of his ronstitu-
ents at the election of two years ago. The i
only qualifications that his friends were able to
discover in him for the place were his suavity
about the barber shop and his success as a ton- b
serial artist. These were sufficient, and he was .
elected over the former incumbent-a perfectly
worthy man-by a deplorably large majority. p
He was totally unfit for the office, as any one c
who ever attended an inquest under his man-
agement must have painfully felt. Neverthe-
less, Mayer was a popular fellow, and his popu-
larity outweighed his deficiencies. t
The Mayer who absconded, recently,
with money which he had stolen, and i
whom the Times desires to denounce, is
not the Mayer who is the Coroner and
Public Administrator of Storey county.
The absconder deserves the strictures
of the Times, but our Coroner and Pub-
lic Administrator does not. An apology
from the Times is in order.

Or course nobody in this State pretends to
approve that Hamburg affair. It is hardly a
month, however, since a mob of negroes in this
vicinity b oke into the cabin of a hard-working,
honest man of their own race and beat him to
death because he was a Conservative;--Nesw
Orleans Timues.
No troops have been sent to that dis-
trict up to date. If a mob of Demo-
cratic negroes had broken into the house
of a Republican negro, however, how
quickly would telegraph orders have
been received for a movement of bayo-
nets, and what a strong reason the
Enterprise would have seen in such an
outrage why everybody should vote for
Hayes

THE Planet, a paper published in
Memphis, Tenn., in the interest of the
colored people, and having great in-
fluence with them, advises its readers
"to ignore all party lines and go for
the best man, without respect to former
party allegiance." This advice of the
Planet is significant, in view of the
fact that it has hitherto been a staunch
Republican organ. Should its readers
take its advice they will act in the
same manner next November, as all in-
telligent voters will then act.

MoonD, the revivalist, has built and
occupied a $10,000 house at Northfield,
Mass. For the servant of a Master
who "had not where to lay his head,"
Mr. Moody is a bird with a very well-
feathered nest or a fox with a very
snug hole. Probably the latter-named
animal.

The Democracy howls so fearfully about re-
form that nothing else is thought of or dreamt
ot. Does there live a man with a brain superior
to that of an oyster, who does not aclknowledge
the fact that retrenchment is necessary.-Car-
son Tributne.
, Our opinion is that retrenchment is
reform, although the Republican party
does not seem to think so. It tries to
make the people believe that reform
consists in promising reform.

How the Feninns Escaped. sf
New YoaK, August 19. Mr. Thomas
lenry, of the Fenians who arrived in the
Catalpa to-day, said to a reporter : "We n
-ore expecting for about two years that w
-e would be rescued from prison. We m
Ways kept on the alert for a movement bl
f any kind which could be turned to our 7:
advantage. We were notified of the sail- tr
ig of the Catalpha, and expected her in ce
larch, but we did not hear of her arrival o0
until a few days before the 17th of April, tt
he day on which we effected our purpose. n,
After breakfast on the 17th, about 7:30 5t
'clock, we left the prison gates unob- in
served and entered carriages provided for al
s. Our party numbered eleven, inolud-
Ig (tsiders, who kept in our front and
ear to look out for enemies. We reached
Rockingham at 11:30 A. M., where a whale- B
oat of the Catalpha was lying, and got 0
n board. During the journey by land r
'e were not molested, though we met sev-
ral persons. When we were two and a m
alf miles from shore the police came up am
nd captured our horses and carriages, mn
which had beenleft on the beach. We had m
great trouble in finding the Catalpha, and m
he police got a boat and were huntingfor o'
s. A storm arose and blew us outtosea. nc
)ur provisions were destroyed and we s
Were out all night, all wet through and in w
deplorable condition. When daylight nc
roke we saw the Catalpha, and made for
er. When about seven miles from her
re saw the colonial steamer Georgette
nd a police cutter searching for us, but th
hey could not see us owing to the rough dc
ross seas. The police kept the Catalpha d'
a sight while the steamer went to land. C
VWe were then twenty miles from land i
nd near Roclingham, and rowed with I,
11 our strength to the bark. At this H
ime the Catalpha and police had discov- t
red us and the latter was fast pulling t
oward us, but we headed the police cut- t1
er and reached the Catalpha first and i
scrambled on board. The crew of there
bark gave a cheer, and we rushed over to o
he other side of the deck and drew our
evolvers and presented them at the
leads of the seven men in the police boat. te
Lhe steamer Georgette was commissioned
by the Government officials to follow us. a
bhe bark could not go to sea that night, ag
.s the wind was dead ahead. Next morn- ci
ng the Georgette bore down on us and E
demanded that the captain of the Catal- h
pha give up the prisoners. The latter re- o
used, and the Georgette sailed for shore." S
Four thousand dollars have been raised d
here for the relief of the prisoners. t'
NEW YORK, August 21.-The rescued p
Fenians were visited by a large number g
of admirers to-day at their hotel.. They o
hook hands with all callers and during $
he day visited the ship Catalpha in
which they made their escape. Many
prominent Irishmen were among the
visitors. '
A Big Dry Goods Store. c
CHICAGO, August 20.-The lease of the '
building in which the successors to A. T.
Stewart's business are to open here a C
branch of the New York establishment, a
is signed for five years, and binds the d
parties signing to put in a stock of goods F
worth $2,000,000 or more. The propri- P
etors intend to make this a central point v
for their trade, and if business warrants,
;o make their Chicago house more ex-
tensive than the New York one. It will
be exclusively wholesale, and will be run I
in the same way as the original house.
They expect to open in September or n
October at the farthest, with an entirely t
new stock from factories here and in e
Europe. _
A Wall from the Revenue Depart t
mient.
WASHINGTON, D. C., August 20.-The f
Commissioner of Internal Revenue says
that the reduction in the force of gaugers
will be gradually made. Such as are
designated for discharge under the re-
trenchment order are to be dropped when
their duties are fulfilled. It is stated at 1
the Bureau of Internal Revenue that it (
will be impossible to collect the tax on t
whisky in consequence of the 25 per cent.
reduction to be made in that Bureau.
Under the Act of Congress additional
detectives, the officials say, will be em-
ployed, who must be provided for in a
deficiency bill next Winter.

Speaker Kerr's last Honrs.
NEW YORK, August 20.-The following
dispatch has been received ;
ROCKBRIDGE, Alum Springs, West Vir-
died at about 7 o'clock this evening. I
have been by his side for two days. Iis
last hours were painless, as he so much
desired. His composure was as remark-
able as it was heroic. He was thoroughly
content and prepared for the unseen
world. Hie was conscious and intelligent,
gentle and brave, to the end. Hisi dis-
ease was consumption of the bowels, but
toward the last other parts were involved.
He has been fo' days pdst, in fact, a dis-
embodied intellect-a mere skeleton.
Everything possible to be done at this
remote spot to soften this blow to his
family, by throwing the tenderest care
around his dying bed, has been done, and
the last offices will be performed with
every thoughtfulness they could ask. We
have sent to the officers of the House at
Washington for an escort. His body will
be taken to New Albany on Monday.
(Signed): S. S. Cox.
Orpleus O(. Kerr Dying.
NIEW YORK, August 20.-P. H. Newell,
known in literature as Orpheus C. Kerr,
is undoubtedly on his death bed. He has
for several months been ailing and of late
his disease lhas deprived him of appetite;
even of tho power to eat. He grew worse
steadily and for periods extending over
days ate not a morsel of food. Under
that deprivation of sustenance he wasted
rapidly and is now emaciated to a terrible
degree. He partakes of very light food
only evte rnate day. The attending
physicians say that he cannot recover and
that his surviving thus long is to be won-


gloom over tb, city to-night. Savior
Id several either members of the iofuso
Reprl'Cintatives will go on to r.ock.
'itlv a'id accompany the remains to
idiana. Mr. Kerr suffered greatly, but
is mind remained clear to the last.
NEW YORi, August 20. A Tincs
Vashingtou special says the death of

ertainty that the whole train would go

topping the train just in time by swing-
ig a lantern. About 100 passengers were
board the train.

TURKEaH REPORTS OF VICTORY.
CONSTANTINOPtlrLE, Aaugust 20.-T'lhe con-
equences of the Turkish strategy, in
marching back to Grenada Pass and
round northwesterly to the rear of
clexinatz, is that the great Servian army,
t Banja Pass, is useless.
Alisab attacked the Servian intrench-
nents on the frontier, and the Servians

ection in Bulgaria.

net Council, held here on Saturday last,

The Financial Crisis in Portugal.

Dispatches to the Evening Chroniele.l
LISBON'S FINANCIAL CRISIS.
LONDON, August 21.-The financial
crisis in Portugal originated in a failure
in some financing bank in Oporto, and is
the revival of the crisis there in May last,
when some weak banks were assisted by
stronger institutions and when the Gov-
ernment also advanced money. The bills
then discounted for the weak banks Iave
now run their course, and, as this position
is unimproved, the stronger banks refuse
to renew the bills. It is expected that
the large amount of sovereigns which
have gone from the Bank of England will
restore confidence.

to buy stocks in San Francisco by tele
graph at the cost of one per cent. Selling
also, was done in the same manner. Thc
buying and selling of these stocks could
not beo done to advantage in th
New York Stock Exchange for th
reason that the commissions were so high
The object of the American Board wa
to make a regular and an exclusive mar
ket for these stocks in New York, anc
thereby secure a lucrative business
which, if neglected, would be diverted to
some other place. Such an institution
would also help to unlock some of the un
employed capital and indirectly aid in th
development of the mineral and manufac
during resources of the country.
One hundred and twelve application
have been made for membership, most c
which will be accepted. Permanent
rooms will be obtained, situated as nea
the New York Stock Exchange as pos
sible. The date for the beginning of busi
ness will depend upon the action of th
Executive Committee.

JOTTLNGS ABOUT TOWN.,
When Bennett, the incarcerated prize-
fighter heard that a riot was going on at
the primaries to-day, he begged hard to be
allowed to get out "just half an hour."
A report has gained circulation, both in
Gold Hill and Virginia, that the admis-
sion to Cooper & Bailey's circus and
menagerie would be $2 50. This is not a
fact. The regular admission fee of $1 will
be charged.
A few days ago a set of surgical instru-
ments was taken from a room over the
Postoffice, and to-day a Chinaman was
arrested in a pawn-shop trying to nego-
tiate a loan on the instruments. He was
promptly lodged in jail.
The Goodman Mining Company has
filed articles of incorporation in the
County Recorder's office. Trustees-A.
K. Grim, W. H. Sears, R. R. Civonu, T.
B. Hayes and W. H. Corbett. Capital
stock, $10,000,000 in 100,000 shares.
There is something about you," said a
lady to a tall, dark-complected gentleman,
the other day, "that reminds me of tie
Grand Duke Alexis." "What is it?"
was the query, as a matter of course.
"Your feet," was the reply; and the
poor fellow was assisted out of the room
by his friends.
Captain Sam, a worthy Piute, called at
the CHRONICLE office and wished it stated


that his horse-a bay, branded "J. D."-
had either strayed or been stolen by some
rascally white man, and he wishes the
same to be returned to him. Captain Bob,
the Piute news-gatherer for the CHaoN-
1CLE, came ih and stated that some Indians
on Walker river had killed a white woman
and carved her up fearfully; but as he
borrowed four bits immediately after-
wards, his information was not considered
reliable.
Business Notices.
Coffins of all styles and sites can be
found at R. A. Barnes'.
Halleck Brothers are selling furniture,
bedding and carpets at the lowest rates.
Nothing this hot weather is such an
undisputed luxury as ice. The best
quality is obtained of A. G. Bell.
An assessment (No. 14) has been levied
upon the stock of the Peytona Gold and
Silver Mining Company. See advertise-
ment.
Bill Davis has lost his big lamp in mov-
ing his gymnasium. It was marked Gem
Saloon. The finder will be rewarded-
provided he brings it back.
Persons are cautioned against purchas-
ing from any one any town lots east of L
street, between Virgiia and Hicke%, as
they belong to the Senator Milning Com-
pay,.


A DASTARDLY OUTRAGE.
AttesmpI to low Up a liweUlinag Honse
with G;lant P'owder.
On Saturday night an attempt was
made to blow up a house near the corner
of Taylor and R streets with giant pow-
der, and the attempt nearly resulted fa-
tally to the inmates. It appears that, on
Saturday night, a tin-roofer named
Jack .Tackson came to tlhe houso and
began to abuse Mrs. Hayes, accusing
her of living with Nigger lave."
This was about 9 o'clock, and just
after 12 a voice was heard on the out-
side, and tlhe woman got up and went
around the corner of tlie house. As she
reached the rear she saw a gleam of light,
and sprang back just in time to avoid a
terrific explosion which took place under
the window. Dave, the colored man, had
just opened the window, to look out, when
he saw the spitting of a fuse, and the next
instant the explosion knocked him down
and the woman saw a man running away
from the wood-pile in the rear of the
house. The force of the explosion shat-
tered the windows of several houses in the
vicinity. Two children occupying a trun-
dle bed about fifty yards away were thrown
to the floor by the slats falling out. The
noise awoke the neighbors for blocks
around, and the whistles of the mines
blew a fire alarm.
THE WOMAN'S STATEMENT.
The woman stated to a CHRONICLE re-
porter this morning that the man Jack-
son had been quarreling with her for six
months, and on the night of the explosion
called her a negro prostitute, and
threatened to lay the house in ashes.
She said she had a husband living, from
whom she was trying to get a divorce,
and that she was engaged to marry a rich
man in this city. As to the man
living in the same house (which has but
one room), he was more of a Spaniard
than a negro, and had been very kind to
her in sickness. He occupied a sofa,
while she and two children occupied the
bed. He also owned half the house. She
stated that after the fire the Relief Com-
mittee gave her enough to keep her com-
fortably for two years. The negro's name
is Dave Perry. The man Jackson, who
nails on tin roofs for a livelihood, is sup-
posed to be jealous of Perry. Nearly all
the houses in the vicinity are covered
with tin roofs and some of the shanties
are entirely of tin, and during the past
few years Jackson has managed to build a
sort of "Tinopolis" addition to Virginia.
As yet no complaint has been made at the
police headquarters against Jackson, who
is supposed to have left the town. The
house in which Mrs. Hayes lived only
suffered from broken windows and
smashed crockery.

ticket.
A MYSTERIOUS FIRE.
The Blaze on Sunday Morning-Talk
of Incendiarism.
On Sunday morning about 4 o'clock an
uninhabited house belonging to Nicholas
Welch, near the Gold Hill reservoir, was
discovered to be on fire. An alarm was
sounded and Moumental Company No. 6
reached the ground, but too late to save
the building, which, being of wood,
burned rapidly. For about fifteen minutes
the flames threatened the adjoining build-
ings, which, however, were saved by
pulling down the fences around them and
spreading wet b ankets upon the roofs.
The fire company prevented the spread of
the conflagration, but the building was a
total loss.
During the past eighteen months the
house has been fired five times. It has
not been occupied since the 12th of July,
and about five weeks ago it was dis-
covered to be on fire by a man who, on
breaking in to extinguish the flames,
found a pile of hay, blazing bunches of
matches and a can of oil, part of which
had been poured over the floor. Last
night's fire was plainly the work of an in-
cendiary.
"The Pacifle Life.'
The first number of the Pacific Life was
issued on Saturday last in San Francisco.
It is a sixteen-page paper, about the size
of the Turf, Field and Farm, and con-
tains sixty-four finely-printed columns.
The paper is devoted to "field and water
sports, the protection of fish and game,
home recreations, the drama, military
and fire department matters." It is
edited by Colonel H. G. Shaw, the
President of the California Rifle Asso
citation, who is a gentleman, a jour-
nalist and a soldier. Each of its
many and varied departments is complete
and a large space is devoted to military
matters and target practice, while fishing,
ball-playing, coursing, pigeon shooting,
billiards, and all the minor sports are
given the prominence they deserve. It is
a first-rate gentleman's sporting paper5
equal in its general make-up and neat
typographical appearance to anything
published in America. There will soon
be an agency established in Virginia City,
and if the pacific Life will locate a regu-
lar correspondent here it will receive a
liberal support.
Thae Danger of Small-Pox.
Considerable apprehension is felt in
town concerning the small-pox. The
advent of cool weather is liable to in-
crease the virulence of the disease, and
extra precautions are necessary. In view
of the fact that the Indians are encamped
in the vicinity of the pest-house, and
notably addicted to picking up -every-
thing in the shape of loose clothing, it
would be well if the authorities should
compel them to be vaccinated. The bucks
wander around the streets and mingle with


the crowd, while many of the squaws do
washing for white families. 'If the pesti-
lence should once break out among the
tribe, it would decimate them, while the
white folks would stand in great danger
of infection.
The Connty Comulassioniers,
The Board of County Commissioners
met last Saturday morning at the County
Clerk's office, The following bills were
allowed:
T. R. McGurn, $20; Peter Burke,
$1,500, and Commissioner Torp, in aid of
an indigent patient at the County Hos-
pital named Eugene McLaughlin, 875,
This was allowed in order to enable him
to reach his friends in California.
Miss Lizzie H. Shoat applied to have
her deaf and dumb son placed in the Asy-
lum in San Francisco, as she is unable to
maintain him. Referred to the Superin-
tendent of Public Instruction. The
Board then adjourned till September 4th
next.

THE REPUBLICAN PRIMIARIES.
A Hot Fight cBtween thie Crescentm
and Anlt-Creccents.
The Republican primaries are being
held to-day in the various wards, amid
much wrangling and fighting at some ol
the polls. The following Delegrates tc
the State Convention, to convene at Car
son on the 24th of this month, are named
in the tickets :
In the First Ward there is only on
ticket, as follows : W. H. Botsford, John
Lambert and A. V. Comstock.
In the Second Ward there are four
tickets, and the t at the polls by th
henchmen of the various candidates wae
vigorous and onceasing. The tickets arle
as follows : John S. Pidge, R. 1. Taylor,
F. V. Drake,Henry Piper and George L
Hawkes.
W. S. Wood, R. L. Taylor, F. V.
Drake, Henry Piper. Geo. L. Hawkes.
Henry Piper, W. S. Wood, R. I. Tay
lor, John S. Pidge, Chas. Mueller.
Henry Piper, W. S. Wood, R. H.
Taylor, George A. King, Chas. Mueller.
In the Third Ward there are only twc
tickets, Viz. :
James Mcay T, A. Stephens, Geo.
L. Schwab, A. lliams, A. Leictter,
W. W. Scoggin.
C. E. DeLong, F. F. Osbiston, George
I. Lammon, P. S. Corbett, L. P. Wardle.
R. H. Lindsay; and in the Fourth Ward
two also, viz.: T. S. Libby, C. H. Steel
andFrank Moyer.
Philip Reese, Frederick Kline, J. B.
Stevens.
A CHeONICLE reporter visited the polls
many times during the day and found
that the contest was between the Cres-
cents and the anti-Crescents. From al
indications the Crescents were thoroughly
organized, and at each poll they had
numerous representatives pulling and
hauling about the voters in the hope oJ
raising a vote. It was noticeable alse
that they challenged nearly every foreign
born citizen and nearly every one known
to be a Roman Catholic.
At the First and Fourth Ward polls
their proceedings were quiet and under
handed. At the Third Ward poll theil
maneuvres were less concealed, while
in the Second Ward there were several:
who openly boasted of being Crescents.
At this poll, at one time, there was
every prospect for a fight. The
window of the poll was carefully guarded
by ex-Judge Marple and B. Bartlett,
and a voter could not approach it with
out inconvenience. Peter Burke, the well
known contractor, brought up a num
ber of voters, every one of whom was
challenged by some one of the Cres
cents present. One of them was not
allowed to vote, whereupon Mr.
Burke said that the man was a Re
publican and demanded of Mr. Bartleti
what he was. The latter promptly re-
plied: I'm a Crescent and I ain'
ashamed to acknowledge it."
At the Third Ward poll the feeling rat
so high that a serious affray occurred. I1
appears that one side had for challenges
Jim Jewell, the other Charley Palmer
Some one was substituted for Jewell,
challenger, whereupon George I. Lam
mon and Dick Paddock objected
Some words occurred between Mr
Paddock and a big red-shirtec
lounger named Christy, which led to Mr
Christy receiving an unhealthy paste un
der the ear, which made him sue foi
peace and consent to remain quiet.

A B UTAL WIFE BEATER.
Ilchael Kelly Sent to Jail for Ons
Hundred Days.
The case of Mike Kelly, the wife
beater, was called this morning in Cox'i
Court. Kelly lives with his wife at the
Nevada House, and about a week age
people living in the vicinity were roused
by the screams of Mrs. Kelly, whe
rushed out into the street followed by he3
husband. She succeeded in finding
refuge in a neighbor's house, while the
rampant Kelly -continued to hunt fos
her, filling the air with horrible blas-
phemy and threats until morning, and
preventing the neighbors from sleep
ing. When on the stand he ad.
mitted beating his wife, but considered
that he had a right to, as she refused te
allow him to exercise certain marital
rights. The jury, however, believing thai
a woman had some personal rights which
a husband was bound to respect, found
him guilty, and he was fined $200, with
the alternative of 100 days in the County
Jail. Not being able to pay the fine, hs
went to jail, and his wife is thus deprived
of his support for over three months.

How C. M. Mayer Stole.
The total amount of Charles M. Mayer's
defalcation amounts to nearly $2,700, ol
which about $900 was abstracted from the
Wylie estate. There is a regulation of the
Court by which Mayer, as assignee, was
required to deposit all the assets of bank-
rupt estates in the bank, and in the name
of each estate. He neglected to do this,
and deposited them in his own name.
Whenever any money had to be paid out
of this account, he managed the trans-
action in this fashion : He would go to
Mr. Strother with a check signed "C. M.
Mayer, Assignee," and ask for Mr.
Strother's counter-signature, at the same
time showing a bank-book, which was an
entire forgery, marked "C. M. Mayer,
Assignee in Bankruptcy." As soon as he
obtained Mr. Strother's signature, he
would tear up the legal check and substi-
tute one drawn on his private account.
In this manner he entirely deceived Mr.
Strother.
Frightful Mining Accient.
A painful accident took place at Silver
City yesterday. A Gold Hill girl, while
out taking a stroll, sat down at the mouth
of the Golden Fleece Consolidated to re-
move a sliver from her foot, and taking
off one of her shoes, let it drop
down the shaft. A cage was coming up
from the 900-foot level, when the weight
of the shoe smashed it all to pieces, and,
the cable breaking, four men were pre-
cipitated to the 2000-foot level and taken
up dead. They all left families, and
were highly respected in Gold Hill.
Their funeral will take place on Sunday
under the auspices of the Miners' Union.
No blame can be attached to the young
lady, who immediately offered to sell the
leather and nails in her other shoe to pay
the funeral expenses-the balance to go
to the unfortunate widows.

The Turn Verein's Party.
The Germans kpow how to enjoy
themselves has become a proverb, and
the social party of the Turn Verein last
night, at their new hall, was a verifica-
tion of it. Their parties are becoming
more and more popular, and they deserve
their popularity as they are always well
managed. A brightly lighted and
prettily decorated hall, with good music
and a good crowd of dancers, made up the
attractions last night when a CHEOMICLs,


reporter visited the hall. Everything
went off in excellent style, and when,
between 12 and 1 o'clock, the party broke
up, it was with evident regret.- The
Turn Verein is in a flourishing condition,
and has a strong membership, and its
managers evidently iul..r- r..i how to
place'its prosperity on a firm basis.

A Candid lWitness.
A witness in the Police Court to-day
came on the stand considerably under the
influence of liquor, when the Pireouting
Attorney asked him if he was drunk.
WTtness-I think I am a little gone.
Attorney-How long have you been
drunk ?
Witness-Oh, all along,
-.'W i -- i.: I, how long is that?
Witness-About three years ; never
entirely sober in all that time, I guess,

yesterday and was suffocated in the mud.
AN EARTHQUAKE AT SEA.
The bark Forest Queen, from Ludlow,
reports that an earthquake was felt on the
16th instant. They were in latitude 41
degrees 55 minutes north, longitude 2(
degrees 25 minutes west, with a smooth
sea, clear weather and light northwest
wind, when the shock occurred, at 1:15
p. M. It was gentle, heavy and lasted
about fifteen seconds.
A STATE DEMOCRATIC CLUB.
A meeting of prominent Democrats
was held in the Mayor's office yester-
day afternoon, for the purpose of consider
ing the formation of a State Democratic
Club, to be a permanent feature of the
party. Governor Irwin and other prom-
inent gentlemen were present. The
organization of the club was not per-
fected, but t is expected that, at the
next meeting, officers will be elected.
The matter of starting a morning news-
paper of Democratic proclivities was gen
rally discussed. It was agreed that the
party had need of an organ, and prelim-
inary steps towards its establishment will
be taken at an early day.
HOUSE AND BARN BURNED.
Yesterday morning, about 3 o'clock, a
fire broke out in a two-story frame build
ing on Potrero avenue, between Eight-
eenth and Nineteenth streets, occupied
by an Italian gardener and his family.
There was no supply of water in the
neighborhood, and the locality being in-
accessible for the engines, the house and
a large barn adjoining were entirely de-
stroyed.
A DREADFUL ACCIDENT.
A boy named Bartow, aged about 16
years, while playing on box freight cars,
lying in the railroad yard on Bryant and
Harrison streets, near Twelfth, yesterday
afternoon, fell between the cars while
they were in motion, and had one of his
legs cut off at the thigh. He was removed
to St. Mary's Hospital. His condition
was critical last evening.
A NEW MODE 01' STOCK GAMBLING.
E. J. Brown, arrested upon a charge of
conducting a game of chance, demanded
a jury trial in the Police Court on Satur-
day. and the case was assigned to the
City Court for determination. The ac-
cused had a list of mining stocks, and
sold tickets bearing the name of these
stocks at so much a ticket. At a certain
hour every day the sale of tickets was
stopped, and, after the San Francisco
Stock Board closed its morning session,
the stock which had advanced the most
since the previous session of the Board
was declared the winner, and the money
paid in for tickets on all stocks on the list
was divided pro rata among those tickets
of the winning stock. Brown retained
ten per cent. of the amount for his com-
mission.
SPREADING THE SMALL-POX.
Complaints come from the quarantine
office that owners of coasting vessels
wholly neglect to use proper precautions
to prevent the spread of the small-pox.
Circumstances are cited where captains
of vessels have smuggled small-pox pa-
tients ashore into boarding houses, in
order to cause no expense to the vessel.
A captain is reported to have received
strict orders from his owners not to al-
low his vessel to be quarantined at any
-hazard, but to run the gauntlet of the
quarantine boat and send his patients
ashore in the night. The captain did not
obey his instructions, but anchored his
vessel at the quarantine ground and
waited for a doctor to dome on board.
The owners, who are large lumber deal-
ers, threaten to discharge the captain for
disobeying orders.
A HOODLUM REIGN OF TERROR.
The scenes of violence and hoodlumism
which have recently disgraced the city,
and the comments of the press on the
question, have roused the authorities to
more energetic action. The statement
recently published that citizens of Hayes
Valley were considering the propriety of
organizing a vigilance committee for self-
protection, has had the effect to call out
a lengthy address from the Chief of Po-
lice, which was read to the force Satur-
day night, deprecating the recent reign
of lawlessless, and urging the officers to
increased vigilance in the discharge of
their duties. The inadequacy of the
police force in point of numbers is very
generally recognized by the community,
and considerable criticism is also bestowed
upon the present arrangements for dispos-
ing of offenders against the peace. When
an arrest is made the officer is obliged, in
order to lock up his prisoner, to travel in
some cases two or three miles, leaving hip
beat in the meantime unguarded, The
expediency of establishing precinct sta-
tion-houses in different parts of the city
is attracting attention, and it is thought
that some such provision would greatly
facilitate the work of maintaining good
order.
MISCELLANEOUS.
Ex-Supervisor Deering is charged with
serious irregularity. He is accused of
collecting $495 from the city on behalf of
M. Clarke, of Blue Lakes, and appro-
priating the money to his own use. The
records of the Auditor's office show that
Deering acted as Clarke's agent. The
demand was reduced from $500 to $495 to
obviate the necessity of passing an au-
thorization to print. Clarke's version is
that Deering solicited permission to make
the collection from the city. It is not
known whether Mr. Clarke will institute
legal proceedings or not.

Sutro Items.
The total length of the Sutro Tunnel is
14,050 feet. The month of August will
show a distance of nearly 400 feet accom-
plished.
There is a lively and interesting contest
between the Burleigh and ungersol- drills
in the Sqtro T'nnel.
Adolph Sutro, General Superintendent
of the Sutro Tunnel Company, is ex-
pected to return from Washington next
week.
- John D. Bethel, outside foreman at
Sutro, left for Illinois on Saturday even-
ing, on account of the serious illness of
his father.
B4lver City lItems.
A comical trial took place in Silver
City last Friday, as the sequel to the
shooting of a Chinaman by Mr. Gowen,
the well-known store-keeper. A mock
jury was impaneled and Mr. Gowen ar-
raigned. After a period of apprehension
on his part, he was condemned to treat at
Johnny Becker's saloon, and so the case
ended. The corpse of a straw Chinaman
had been the subject of the inquest and
was the back-bone of the whole joke.


J. A. Bonham's store in Dayton was
burglarized a few nights ago. The thieves
took away nothing. They entered the
room of Mr. Bonham's brother, who
scared them' away.

Ah Sam was arrested last night on a
charge of petty larceny, S. O'Brien and
L. Burton for drunken conduct, John
Doe and P. Murphy for disorderly con-
duct, and two goats were taken into the
pound,
About half a pound of red hair, noth-
ing more or less than part of a man's
beard, pulled out at the Third Ward polls
of the primary, was brought to the
CaiqRsICLB office this afternoon. It is
now on exhibition.

The Pioche Record has the following
particulars of the cutting affray which
occurred at Hiko on Tuesday last. We
are indebted to Jim Pierson for the
trouble he took in bringing the letter
from there. He arrived in Pioche laz
evening: "Hiko, August 15, 1875.-To-
day one of our ranchers, IV. S. Fergu-
son, .came to town for the purpose of
settling a law suit he had a day or two
ago and lost, and while in the Justice's
office, W. S. Ferguson and an old em-
ployee of his, George Cadwill, had some
angry words. The Justice commanded
them not to have a row in the office. Mr.
Cadwill then started out of the door and
Ferguson sat down and commenced read-
ing a newspaper. All at once he sprang
from his seat, pulled a pistol, and ran out
the door, seemingly for the purpose to
shoot Cadwill. He noticed him coming
and caught the pistol. They scuffled to-
gether for about fifteen minutes, when
finally Cadwill got the pistol away from
Ferguson, pulled his knife, a dirk about
six or seven inches in length, and
shoved it twice into the body of his an-
tagonist. Finally Ferguson got loose and
ran away, Cadwill firing one shot after
him, which, however, missed him. Fer-
son was coneveyd to his tnch and is
lying in a critical condition, and is ex-
pected to die from the wounds inflicted.
Cadwill gave himself up, was tried and
acquitted; the quarrel having been pro-
voked by Ferguson and the cutting being
done by Cadwill in self-defense. Fergu-
son in this community is considered a
very quarrelsome man, always either in a
dispute or at law with his neighbors."

Billy Dunning, a brakeman on the
Central Pacific Railroad, had one of his
hands badly crushed on Thursday morn-

train at Battle Mountain Station.

DR. SPINNEY & O.,'S

BRANCH OFFICE,

Fredrick's New Building,
Corner lnion and C sireectl,
Opposite International Hotel, Virginia, Nev.

DRi. SPINNEY, WELL KNOWN AS A
founder of the Montreal (C. E.) Medical
Institute, and late Proprietor of the SPINN Y-
VtILLE INFIIRMARY, Drs. Spinney & Co.
,would most respectfully inform their patients
and the afflicted generally that they have re-
opened a branch office at Virginia City, where
they will continue to treat chronic and private
diseases with unparalleled success.
LADIES AND GENTLEMEN,
Remember that procrastination is the thief of
time, so
COME AND BE HEALED.
It matters not what your troubles may be,
come and let the Doctor examine your case.
It will cost you nothing for consultation, so
please call and satisfy yourselves whether the
Doctor understands your case. If he can cure
ou he will tell you so; if not, he will say so;
or he will not undertake a case unless he is
confident of effecting a cure.
YOUNG MEN
Who may be suffering from the effects of youth-
ful follies or indiscretion, will do well to avail
themselves of this, the greatest boon ever laid
at the altar of suffering humanity. Drs..
S. & Co. will guarantee to forfeit five hundred
dollars for every case of seminal weakness, or
private disease of any kind or character, which
they undertake and fail to cure. They would,
therefore, say to the unfortunate sufferer who
may read this notice, that you are treading upon
dangerous ground when you longer delay in
seeking the proper remedy for your complaint.
You may be in the first stage-remember you
are approaching the last. If you are bordering
upon the last, and are suffering some or all of
its evil effects, remember that if you obstinately
persist in procrastination, the time must come
when the most skillful physician can render you
no assistance; when the door of hope will be
closed against you ; when no angel of mercy can
bring you relief. In no case have they
failed of success. Then let not despair work
itself upon your imagination, but avail yourself
of the beneficial results of his treatment before
your case is beyond the reach of medical skill,
or before grii death hurries you to a preirr ture
grave.
rave MIDDLE-AGED MEN.
There are many of the age of thirty to sixty
who are troubled with too frequent evacuation
of the bladder, often accompanied by a slight
Smarting or burning sensation, and a weakening
of the system in a manner the patient cannot
account for; on examining the urinary de-
posits a ropy sediment will often be found, and
sometimes small particles ot albumen will
appear, or the color will be of a thin and milk-
ash hue, again changing to a dark and torpid
appearance. There are many men who die of
this difficulty, ignorant of the cause, which is
the second stage of seminal weakness. Dr. S.
& Co. will guarantee a perfect cure in all such
cases, and a % ttiy restoration of the genito-
urinary organs.
DR; H. J. SPEER,
Now associated with Dr. Spinney, is a regular
graduate of HARVARDn CoiwLOsE, and having
hada large experience in hospital and special
practice, is now one of the most competent
physicians in America, for the treatment of
Chronic and Special Diseases.
Office Hour--10 to 4 and 6 to 8 Sundays,
S-rom 10 to 11 A. hi. only. Consultation Free.
Thorough examination and advice, $5.

matorrhea or Seminal Weakness, Stricture of

and Kidnev Affections, Skin and Contagious
Diseases, Venereal or otherwise.
DR. THOMAS' treatment is EMINENTLY
SUCCESSFUL, at once arresting seminal loss
and restoring power to the most broken-down
constitutions, and that AFTER OTHERS
HAVE FAILED.
The young, middle-aged, and even those ad-
vanced in life, should not despair of a
SPEEDY AND PERMANENT RELIEF
From their sufferings, but should without de-
lay consult DR. THOMAS, who will give a con-
scientious opinion as to the extent of disease in
each particular case.
TO THE LADIES:
DR THOMAS merely'states that he may be
CONFIDENTIALLY CONSULTED in all dis-
eases incidental to FEMALES.
In 1864 DR. THOMAS received a special
diploma from the Royal College of Surgeons,
London, n
MIDWIFERY AND DISEASES OF WOMEN
AND CHILDREN,
Signed by DR ARTHUR FARRE and DR.
ROBERT LEE, Physicians to the Princess of
Wales and Duchess of Edinburgh. This diploma
can also be seen in the Doctor's office.
In conclusion the Doctor desires to state that
every patient treated by him will receive a
GUARANTY OF PERMANENT CURE.
