A printing company ass brought s utt to recover the coat ot printing, blading ud circulating a pamphlet, n titled soma lag or other, oa ths cur rency question, which pamphlet was U sued la toe sumner of Utt , and It hue bean brought out in evidence that It waa customary for somebody or other to pay for the printing, binding and clr culatlng ot the pamphlet oa the cur rtney question Issued at that time. This la one of the hardest blows to faith la human nature that has been delivered In a long time, What depths of degeneracy and disgrace may not be predicated of mankind If somebody or other actually paid fcr the "literature' on the currency Issued during the pres idential campaign. It was known as a matter of course, that printers put this matter In type, that presses were employed In the print log of it and that white paper, which at leant was worth a price as "rag. waa usd. It had sven been sllegwi, la oiio or two Instances, that human being expended a certain amount ot labor la compiling the material by tetarlng out back pages of departmental repoorta. But nobody ever drame that anybody paid anything for having this dons. To think that possibly somebody or other expended, say, fl.iKKt In current funds for the production of this "liter' ature" when the same $1,000 would have bought a rare postage sump, or a peculiar orchid, or a thoroughbred trotter I It la the most wanton and mslanchol ly waste of good money that ever was chronicled. CHANDLER FEELS BETTER. Bsnator William E. Chandler, who only two weeks ago denounced the gold standard la good sat terms and called upon every man, within the reach of his Tales to stand up for blmetallam, feels better aow. He had In some way got H Into his head that the administration waa untrue to the pledges embodied In the aolaaga plank of tht BU Louts plav fcorm, a&4 without waiting to ftad out Whether his suspicion had any founda tion In fact, ha proceeded to scold everybody ooanected with the financial operations of th government from the prssldsat and Secretary Qage down to the sweepers who clsa- the floors of the public mints. But he haa been en lightened, and aa ha himself confesses, ail by a visit to the White Houss to In quire what policy President McKlnley intends to follow la dealing with the coinage question. There, according to his own statement, ha learned that tht president stands squarely upon the 8L Louis plst form, which declares that the republl can party Is "opposed to the free cola age. of Oliver except by International agreement with the leading commer cial nations of the world, which we pledg ourselves to promote, and that antll such agreement can be obtained th satotlng gold standard must be pre served." He also learned that Freel dent McKlnley has not abandoned the hope ot establishing such aa agree ment, that la aplte ot the failure ot one honorable and conscientious sffort that direction, ha Intends to make an other, and that ha li resolved by every means la his power to fulfill the obit gatlon which pledges his admlnJstra Uon to promote a practical ayetem International blmetallc coinage. The president's attitude on this question has been perfectly understood by prt ty much everybody except Mr. Chand ler, and now that the latter has called at the executive mansion to see about it, the situation la entirely clear sven to him. Those "starred students" of the Chicago cairersKy are still marching up and down the editorial columns of dally papers In dlffersat parts of the country.

(Signed) H. CLAl'SSENIl'S ft CO This telegram was sent Jan. 2i. 18'J". Mr. Clsuftsenlus atsted In an Interview the Chicago 'Times-Herald." Jan. 28, 1897, that "we sent similar mei sages to more thsn two hundred men. They are agents of the North Oerman Lloyd who have been appointed to this office, but many of them doubtless rep resent other lines as well. The Immi gration bill menares our business and the business of these agents. It also threatens to end emigration to the western state. We believe we have a legitimate right to use our Influence defeat a measure which may cause such widespread Injury, and we acted on the assumption that the men we wired felt the same" Ths following letter was sent by the same Arm to the steamship agents: Chicago. Jan. 2ft. . To Agents: The Immigration bill, which Is In tended to materially restrict Immigra tion, comes up for flnal disposition In the house of representatives. Wanning ton, !. C, on Wednesday, 17 th Instant. It I quite clear that Immigration will really be restricted almost to the stent ot totsl exclusion of Immigrant should the bill become a law, and every (Tort should therefore be made to In sure the defeat of the bill. You are directly Interested In the de feat of the bill as much as we are, and we would respectfully auk you to wire your representative In congress Imme diately upon receipt of this to vote gal net the bill, Informing htm thst the measure virtually means exclusion, snd that his vote In favor of same wlT! mean repudiation by hla constituents and bis defeat at the next election. Trusting thst you will not fsil to give the matter your prompt attention, we are Yours respectfully. H. ('LAISSENU'9 ft CO. With thl letter ws sent the follow ing slip: "Wire your representative fully and let us know coat of telegrsm and we will promptly refund amount to you." Mr. Claussenlus sulisequently said In formal statement: "Our principal objection to the bill Is that It would de prive ths west of agricultural Immigrants which the country Is sadly In need of, whether they are Illiterate or not." Id other words the agent of a for-Ign corporation, one of the moat pow erful In the world, and receiving a sub- Idy from the Oerman Empire, under took to have congressmen threatened with defeat If they voted for a measure which they believed would protect the Institutions and the rttlsenshlp of the country and the social snd Industrial welfare of their constituents. Mr Lodge said without contradiction. In the senate on Feb. 2. 1897, In speaking of these letters snd telegrams: "To every newspaper In which they have an advertisement they sent an other telegram, and the hand of that company haa been felt In this business ever since It looked as If the bill would get upon the statute book. You rtn see It today In the newspapers. Here Is the report that the president has given It out that he means to veto the bill. Mr. President, no president f the United States would think of giv ing authority to anybody to say, or jI saying hlmsvlf, that he Intended etth w to veto or to sign a bill before he bad considered It, and before tt hsd been ent to him In a perfected state for his consideration.

In February, 1191, H. Elllng applied for a patent to hla mining claim. During the period or publication the Lillian Mining Company filed a protest against the Issuance of a patent Subsequently defendant made a motion to the Helena land office to dismiss ths ad verse. Ths land office declined, on the giound that the adverse, having been filed, could not be dismissed until the qua lion of th ownership ot ths ground had been settled In the court, In accordance with the custom alwayt followed In such cases. Elllng appealed from this ruling to the commission er of the general land office, but ths latter affirmed the decision of ths Helena office. Appeal waa thsn had to Secretary Bliss, and hla decision revaraea both lowsr decisions. His ruling is viewed a reversal also of previous depart ment rulings In such cases. He sayt: The dspartment has heretofore held that a co-owner objecting to the Issue of a patent must protect hla rights under the form of procedure provided tor an adverse claimant; but It la now in sisted that this nil of the department naa oeea reversed by the supreme court In Turner vs. Sawyer. This was aa action brought by Sawyer, a co-own er, against Turner et al. to have Tur ner declared a trustee of Sawyer of an Interest In the Wallace lode, which had bean patented to Turner. The interest of Sawyer grew out of proceedings somewhat similar to those in th cass at bar ao far as action was had under section 2S24." In concluding the opinion the secre tary says: It Is clearly apparent that the court haa here announced a doctrine that Is the reverse of that heretofore held by the department The ruling of the court is binding upon and must become the ruling of the department It fol lows, therefore, that the protest In question Is not surh a one as ran be recognised aa aa adverse claim neces sitating the Institution of proceeding thereon. In a court of competent Juris diction. It Is the duty of the land d partment, excepting In controvert! referred to the court by the statute, to determine before the isaue of a patent whether the applicant Is entitled there to, and the fart that such controversies may be litigated In the courts alter the Issuance of patent does not relieve the department of Its duty in the premises Where the matter ha? already been de cided by a court of competent Jurlsdlc Uon, the question may arise whether urh a derision la conclusive upon the department but without deciding the question, it seems clear that where the dispute does not Involve the character of th land, or the qualifications of the entry man, or his compliance with the law under which title Is sought, the de partment may properly accept and fol low the Judgment ot a court of compe tent Jurisdiction determining aa be tween contending parties their respect Ive rights and Interests In the land con troverty. The department la not re quired to await the bringing ot suit, because It Is not so provided in the statute and because there Is no obliga tion upon either party to Invoke the Jurisdiction of a court aa there Is In the instance of an adverse claim. Here suit haa been instituted In the lo- c-Jt court for the purposs of settling the question of Joint ownership. Jurisdic tion ot the subject matter may exist 'u though not recognised by Sections 2S2S and U26. The land department may, therefore, well await the result of tht suit before giving consideration to the protest:" A California clergyman said In a ser mon the other day that "vast numbers ot men have attained to a degree ot righteousness equal to that of Christ" The experience ot this California clergyman must have bem unique or else California la a better place to live la thsn we have hitherto supposed.

On the occasion of Buy tint visit to th national capital, aow euui twenty odd .Tears ago, II was no rars thing to sea wiiator or recrewutatlv under th Influence of liquor in their seats or walking about th capital.

It waa considered quit the proper thing for publlo men to gamble ta these loon. Publlo opinion wss thsn such that even ths most fsmous men could do tht with Impunity. It would not be good for s fsmous senator or representative of the time to be known as a frequenter of gambling Sails " Th observations of this gentleman are supported by my own during ths ten years I huve been In Washington. Even In that short time there as been an lmprovenent In th msnners as wall in the raorala of public nisa. Tby sre stiirad with mors csrs. Thsy exhibit more culture in their spseoh.

Ths wonder is that auch an order should be aeoessary, though anyone that baa frequented publlo ofhoss knows It ws necessary.
