Washing and Ironing! Ah Pooh's Wasliouse, Cor. I'bikreh and Mievounun Nl«„ Uhlitli. A Mendocino Romance. Put-ins; tho lvcont trial at Snntti UOBII o( W. I,. Bean, who is charged with working the threadbare tfold brick swindle on David II. I 'arkH, a randier near Bloomfield, Sonoma county, quite an interenting story wao related. Parks, the, victim of tho fraud, testified Mint on tho 27tli day of April W. L. liean came to bin IIOUNP near Blconilield and represented hiuiHolf as Arthur Irwin. He said that lie was a minister and lutd been Chaplain in tho Colorado Prison. Bonn produced a letter of introduction purporting to bo from Park's son who resides in the Hotithern portion of the .State. Bean said that a prisoner named Eastman recently died in the Colorado penitentiary and shortly beforo death lie made a confession that near Bloomfield, Sonoma county, California, he bad hidden treasure. It was a gold brick weighing 400 ounces. A diagram of the place where the brick was buried was in possession of Wean, who said that Eastman had mado it for him. Bean also produced the will of the man Eastman which bequeathed a two-third interest in the brick to himself and the other third to EitBtman's father, who resided in Port ^rville, Tnlarfl county. Bean was oc- Oompanied by n young man whom lie in- ti-od need as tho deceased Eastman's brother. Parks became interested in Ihe story and asked bow Eastman came to be in the penitentiary, to which Bean replied that shortly before the war Eastman resided at Ukiah, Mendocino county, where he became enamored of a beautiful young ludv. They were engaged to be married. At tbeboginni/igof the civil conflict, Eastman, like the Spanish Cavalier bid farewell to IUH sweetheart, pledged her eternal cnnslnncy and started away to join the bloody conflict. Upon his return to I'.'kiah he found that the girl had been i,olrayed by a scoundrel, lie attempted to make the man who had ruined her marry her. The two men engaged in a bloody fight. Eastman slew bis antagonist anil fled with a friend to Mexico. The Indians took them prisoners. His friend was scalped and taken away. Eastman was taken prisoner and compelled to work in the rich mines of Mexico by his captors. Little by little he carried away and hid gold dust uutil ho accumulated a large quantity. One day he seized an opportunity to escape. Mounting a horse be rode to the hiding place of the treasure, secured the dust and made good his eecapo. The next place be turned up was at Colorado. Ho remained there a short time and set out for Ukiah with his treasure. Upon arriving at Ukiah be met his old comrade. He was about to be apprehended for his old crime aud set out for the coast. His friend was with him. At Mendocino City or some other place along the coast they touk a sloop and set sail fur t-an Francisco. Observing that they were followed by a large vessel, they went ashore at Bodega. The two men, pursued by otiiocr*, carried the brick inland as far as Bloom lield, where, close pressed ! by their followers, they buried it. ! They mado their way back to Colorado and (ell out over tho ownership of a ; gun. In n scuffle for the gnu Eastman i accidentally discharged the weapon, The shot killed his former iriond. For this he wax serving a life sentence in i the penitentiary. The prisoner had j since contracted consumption and in j view of impending death made the I will which Bean produced, j After listening to Bean's gilt edge story . a search from tho diagram was made. Ere long the gold brick, which weighs uouie twenty-six pounds, was turned up. Bean had a drill and a hole was immedi ately drilled in the bron/.o brick. The filings were given to Parks and ho was requested to have the metal tested. The next day Hi inn and Parka went into Pot- lunin for th it purpose. The filings were in nn envelope. When in town Bean said to Parks " give me that envelope containing the filings so that you can take a part to one jeweler and I another part to a soeoud jeweler." i'arks obeyed. Bean handed Parks back the envelope after a short time and he went to u jeweler who pronounced the tilings good gold. Parks was very much elated over the find. Bean then told him ii lie would givo him $1,000 in money be would' give him a lien on the brick. He needed the money to moetan emorgoucy. Parks got the brick and L'enn the money. Ho wrote I'arks a letter telling hint not to dispose of tho brick as it was stolen property ; t hall here were privato marks on it which were known to the United states detectives, and it woidd therefore bo necessary to remelt it. Bean wits not heard from again and Parks grew suspicious and confided the story of his investment to the legal authorities who put detectives on the track of Bean. In a short tiino u man answering Beau's description was lodged in the county jail ut Santa Rosa. His trial ended on the 3d iust. in a disagreement of the jury, six standing fur conviction and six ior acquittal. The Lottery Bugaboo. Saernmento Kse. The Louisiana Lottery bill has been pase- ed over the Governor's veto. It will he interesting to watch whether the State will be swamped in a sea of extravagance and corruption, or whether it will go righ t si raigbt along on the path oi progress. We believe it will progress. W'e know no reason why it should not. Wo are not of those who see the hand writing; on tho wall because Louisiaun IIBB thought best to keep vaHt amounts within her own borders rather than let thoin bo diverted into othor States. This howl against the licensing of lotteries has more in it of hypocrisy than of sense, more of sentiment than of reason. Wo in California are passing out of the State hundreds of thousands of dollars monthly to this lottery, which pay* nothing at all for the privilege of conducting its business hero. The laws against selling lottery tickets are dead letters, and violators thereof are frequently on Grand Jurieg. Thousands of dollars go into the coffers of the Chinese lotteries of this city, and none but the Police Department seems to profit thereby. The evil is here, the ovil will be hero. Many of the most earneBt denunciators of the evil are themselves dabblers therein. Then what is to be done? When an ill cannot be checked, the sensible physician keens it within bounds of proper regulations. So should it be with our State and municipal doctors. ThiB lottery evil is running wild, and there seems to be no power to restrain it. Then why not make it some benelitlo State and city. License itand keep it within proper check. Then it will be of some benefit to the people. Now it is none. Then it will lose half its viciousncss by losing all of its secrecy. The Census. S. F. Alta. It is said that Nevada's population h only 45,ti00, less than the city of Oakland. The recession is due to the decay of mining camps. The State has good agricultural land, and, with proper attention to irrigation, can support, in comfort a large population. It needs a different disposition towards immigrants, a kindlier welcome aud better protection in their legal rights, and it may greatly regain ith standing by 1000. Idaho shows less than 100,000 population, and there are doubts as to the propriety of giving her Statehood, but it is propable that her resources are sudicientlv permanent to secure an increase in tho number of her population, or at leatt prevent decadence. Iowa ami Kansas both show a decrease in the rate of increase, and there are some fears thai ! they may show au actual falling off since 1SH0. This is attributed to prohibition in those States. On one aido of then. Missouri and on the other Nebraska, an old State and a new State, with high liquor license, show a large increase in their respective populations. Everywhere the census shows a greater proportionate increase in city than in countr\ population, which is the most nnwhole Boine indication that a country coulci have. In tho manufacturing States especially the farms are deserted and the towns are crowded. It is certain that a j a greater percentage of our total population will be in cities than ten years ago.

KMf »«»»*. .Apj,ljMoir, Ii. MUin, WllUta, ot WASHINGTON , July 0.—Speaker Reed to-day had James tt. Blaine, Jr., ejected from the floor of the HOUJO on a complaint lodged against him by Congressman Houk of Tennessee. Young Biaine is clerk of the Committee on Foreign Affairs, of which Mr. llitt of Illinois is chairman. Under the rules none of the committee clerks have tho right to the door except when business of their committees is beforo the House, but young Blaine hps been going jn and out whenever it suited him. The Blaines and tho Reeds are not on speaking terms and tho Secretary doubtless will not entertain any high regard for the Speaker when he hears that he bud bis son bounced from the floor in a humiliating way. The new universal, comprehensive, personal option, back action, repeating and far reaching pension bill is a little too much for the Buffalo Expretn, ft Republican paper which breaks out in this treasonable style—thftt is, when a Democratic paper talks this way it is accused of disloyalty : "The conference pension bill is not born of patriotism und justice, nor is it based on principles of good government. The Republican party, it is urged; stands pledged to do justice to the soldier. Do pension appropriations oi nearly $100,- O00.OJO a year go for naught? Must $60,000,000 more be given to prove that the Republican party is the soldier's friend? That party has pledged itself to be just, aud it has magnificently redeemed the pledge. When it becomes recklessly extravagant, it forgets its duty to the American people. A deficit ol $60,0000,000 can never bo explained, excused or extenuated. Right or wrong, it invites a disastrous rebuke at the polls. * * * The most objectionable feature, perhaps, of the whole measure is the giving of pensions to widows w'hoso husbands received no injury auo whoso deaths were not indirectly caused by war. Thousands of women who married years after the war closed will become life-pensioners now. No reason for such ill timed and extravagant generosity can be given. * * * The nation owes something to posterity as well n« tn soldiers who never received any injury during the war or widows who married ninety-day soldiers since the war closed. The men who lost their lives, limbs or health, or received any injury whatever in Herving their country are already on Ihe rolls. The people pay cheerfully millions of dollars every year to such men and their widows. But this Is a radical innovation nn the whole theory of pension-giving. It opens the door for frauds innumerable and pub- a premium on the zeal of pension agenb and the too-willing affidavit-making oi :hepensioner. V/nat a chance forswear ing is there in the case of a man attempt ing to prove that the disability he received after the war closed is not tho result of his own "vicious habits!" What « tax on the people to pension thousand, of men who disgraced the service for 9 days and since then have become "dependent" by reason of their own Bhitt lessness and improvidence! What i- loop-hole, moreover, for the pensiou agent in the word "dependent," and how man\ men will become " dependent," ns tin- result of this law! It will pauperizi thousands oi camp-followers and cowards for whom the nation must be taxed mos. greviotisly for years to come. : A Mendooino Railroad. Articles of incorporation have been filed by the the Greenwood Rallraod Company in the office of the County Clerk of San Francisco. The company proposes to build a narrow-gauge railroad from tide water, at the mouth of Ureen- wood creek, or Donahue creek, OH sometimes called, Mendocino county, by the most practicable route to Elk creek in said countv, to a point at or near where said creek intersects the township line between townships 13 nnrl 14 north, range 15 west, Mount Diablo Meridian; thence by the most (practicable route to the main branch of Alder creek; thence up said creek to a point near the east line of section 26, in township 16, nn estimated distance of twentv-four miles, constituting tho main'line. There will be a branch road commencing nt a point distant about three miles from the mouth of said creek, the estimated length o' MIM branch being eight miles. In time there will also be some twenty branch linen, so called, up creeks and gullies, their length ranging from half a mile to eight miles. The capital stock of the company is $i00,0ti0, of which $70,000 has been subscribed. The directors are L. E. White, J. II. Tate, Charles E. Wilson, T. Pollard and E. J. Dodge. Mr. White is a wholesale lumber dealer, San Francisco; Mr. Wilson is an attorney, and Messrs. Pollard and Dodge are also large lumbermen. The road is intended to reach the large redwood forests of Mendocino county. About Money. How many people know how much there is in this country of what people 'money?" How much in gold and •all 1 Oaps.'oam as a Counter-Irritant. Dr. Henry J. Buck, writing to thi Cancel, says: '.'I have used this druj for more than twenty years—I may al most say daily—and many of my pa dents will not travel without a bottle o the 'magic lotion,' as they call it. 1 fin< the simplest aud most efficacious wa> of applying it is to soak ii large handful of the crushed pods in half a pint of ho water for an hour, then strain, and bot tie for use. A tenspoonful of enu-tle cologne added will help to keep the solu tion, or it can be well boiled after prepar ing. I then have it applied to the affected parts on a piece of linen folded threi or four times, or on lint, and coverei with gutta purcha tinsue or a dry flannel En this way the lotion may be kept or for hours without vesicating, and ii. many cases tho skin is liardlv reddened The stinging and binning sensation produced by the capsicum lotion is, after n few minutes, welcomed hy the sufferer so magically does It often remove th> rheumatic or neuralgic pain for which it is being applied. In acute torticollis a cure is often speedily obtained by cover ing the side affected with the application In any lnrm of neuralgia, rheumatism, sub-acute gout, pleurodynia, and such like, it will be found most useful,and mnj be re-appb'ed over and over again during tho day and night without any fear ol vesication." silver coin, and how much in greenbacka ind other paper currency bearing the I 'ampof the United States government? Very few. Inquiry at the Treasury Department discovers the fact that there is, ill told, just a little over two billions or oetween 430 and $10 apiece for every nun, woman and child in tho United states.
