TR/ELER-HERALD. r . MERCHANT, Kdltor nnd Proprietor. SATURDAY, MAY '22, 1880. Republican National Convention. A national convention of the U party will nu-.i't at Chicago, Wednesday, the SBcoml day of Juno, next, fnr the nomination of canrl'uUxti-.s to lie supported for Pres- l-h'iit ntul Vice VrvsUlt'iit at tlie iK-.xt election. Hi'publicaiis, and all who will eo-op- oratc with them in .supnortins: the nominees «f the pi.rtv, are invited to choose two dele- Sates from "i-ach Coiwcssionnl District, four nt largo from eaeli State, two from each Territory, and two from the District of Columbia, to represent them in th-' convention. .T. D. CAMKROX, THOMAS B. KKOCMI, Chairman. Secretary. Edltorinl Jiwtes. Northern Hungary is famine-stricken, and emigration lias become so general that the Government has intervened to stop it by force. Hon. Horace Muyiwrd, of Tennessee, now United St;itRH Minister to Constantinople, succeeds Air. Key as Postmaster General. M. G. Ordway, of New Hampshire, formerly Seargent-at-Avms of the House of Representatives, has been appointed Governor of Dakota. There are 40,000,000 standard silver dollars in the Government's Treasury, and this amount is being increased at the rate of. a million u month. Pass 'em around! JJy the death of lion. San ford E. Church, a few days ago, New York has lost one of its chief public m e n , and the Democratic party one of its possible candidates for the Presidency. The much talked-of jflanlnn-Conrtney boat race on the Potomac, on Wednesday, turned out a farce. Without an effort by Courtney his opponent was allowed to carry of the laurels. The business industries of the country are j u s t arising from their long depression. To the immediate future they look with great anxiety ; bnt they turn ·with hopeful confidence to the cool head and strong hand oC James G. Blaine. Speaking-of the canvass in 1876, Gen'l Grant said of Senator B l a i n e : "Mr. Ulaine would have made a good President. To me personally Blaine would have been acceptable. He is a very iible man, I think a perfectly honest man, lit for any place." The Abany (X. J.) JSvening Journal states the case squarely in the following: "Every district delegate is the servant of his district, and his duty is to obey those wjiom he has been chosen to serve. To do otherwise at the dictation of any man or any set of men would be arrant cowardice." Unwise actjon on the part of a few ' Republicans in Illinois brings forth the expression, "Danger ahead !" and the Democracy will not fail to catch at the "straw." In no State has the contest for Grant and anti-Grant delegates been waged so bitterly as in Illinois. The Republicans of Michigan hope that no serious results to the party will follow. BuTthere is "danger ahead." The Republicans of Illinois held their State Convention this week, to choose delegates to the National Convention, and the result is, after a hard light between the friends of Blaine, \Vashburne and Grunt, a victory for the last named. Minnesota declares for Windom, for President; Nebraska, for Blaine. Louisiana and Colorado are now the only States remaining to select delegates to the Republican National Convention. The Supreme Court of the State of New York, in an appealed case where the trustees of a Catholic cemetery refused to allow the burial therein of the body of a Mason and Protestant, has just decided in favor of the trustees, holding "that religious corporations may lawfully establish cemeteries and burying-grounds exclusively denominational, and guard and protect the same by such rules and regulations as make effective the objects and purposes of their organization." A telegram from Santa Fe says that on the 12th a band of Indians, numbering about 100, attacked JLunas' ranch, about seventy-live miles from llito Quorado, and killed seven--two men, three women, and two children. They also carried away two girls as captives. On the same day the band killed three of Placiilo Romero's herders. On the day previous the Indians are said to have had a fight with a, party of Mormons near Lunas Ranch, in the Sierra Los Escadalas, but the result oi' the meeting is not known. Later dispatches, dated at Forth Craig, the Gth inst., state that the Indians reported one band going north from Tularosa, and another east on that day. General Hatch was at Tularosa, following Victoria. The horses of the command having giving out, the soldiers were ·walking afoot, sore and shoeless. Many of them were still plucky and persevering. They have followed the savages into Arizona and back, and have not been able to get the Indians to stand for a fight. Victoria's live stock is also represented to be iu a bad condition for service. The Buchanan Itecord starts the name of Mr. Van Riper for Secretary of State with the evident intention of heading off A. II. Morrison iu the nomination for Governor, knowing that two State officers will not be nominated in one county.--ATiles Mirror. Not so, Mr. Mirror. The JEra, which first formally suggested the name of Mr. Morrison, for Governor, also was the first to bring forward the name of Hon. Jacob J. Van Riper, for Attorney General--and Mi. Vatt Riper will get the nomination and be elected, SURE. The TKAVELEU- HEKALD gave reasons why Mr. Morrison could not accept the nomination for Governor, and while ho feels most grateful for the many favorable expres sions in his favor, his large business interests compel him to decline all offers of public positions at this time. Knowing that Mr. Van Riper is an able lawyer, a fair-rninded and perfect gentleman, and every way worthy of recognition by his fellow citizens of Michigan, Mr. Morrison heartily supports the suggestion made to give him a place on the Republican State ticket tor Attorney General. STATE TiEWS. Condensed 1'or.tho Tn.AVEM5n-llEitAM. Ex-Judge F. J. Littlejohn, of Alle- guii, died on last Friday afternoon, aged 76 years. Superintendent ?. C. Spencer of Tecumseh has been offered the superin- tendency of the public schools at Battle Creek for the ensuing year. The venerable two-story building on the northwest corner of Washington avenue and Allegan street, Lansing, is about to be replaced by a more substantial edifice. It is one of the oldest landmarks of the capitol city. The first wool came in Tuesday morning and was secured by Win. Wares. It was a clip of 51 fleeces, the property of Thaddeus Drew, Pipestoue ; was fine delaine combing, washed, and a nice lot. Mr. Wares paid 39 cents per pound.--Dowagiac liepiiblican, 19th. The Kahimazoo Telegraph is in the right when it enlarges upon the advisability of returning Hon. J. C. Burrows to Congress, and upon his general leadership among Michigan Congressmen. He is rapidly rising at the National Capitol and is giving our State a place that is not a little to be envied by other young States.--Dccatur Republican. A despatch from Kalamazoo, of the 17, says : "The inhabitants near Long and Austin's lake have been startled by the screeching of a panther in that vicinity for several nights. It was seen passing through the door yard by Mrs. Branch about the middle of last night, and is described as larger than the largest dog. Quite a number of persons in the woods near Long lake have been startled a ood deal by its terrible cries." While visiting friends at Galesburg the liev. L. M. Hunt, pastor of the Congregational chuich at South Haven, in a temporary lit of insanity committed suicide at the home of La Qua the 14th. He was in poor health and spirits, and took a gun to lire it off, as he liked that sport. After several discharges he came to tiie wood-house to oad the gun again, and the family hearing the report went to see the cause, .tnd found him lying on his back dead, iiisgun partly under him. An iron rod with which he pulled the trigger was ying on him. The top of his head was partly shot off. The verdict of the inry's inquest was that he committed suicide in a fit of insanity. Mr. Hunt ias been for several years pastor at Galesburg, but a few months ago he iccepted a call to South Haven where has since been. Last Sunday he jreached to his former congregation, who held him in the highest esteem. He had gone to his friends to stay a few days. The deceased was about 42 years of age. The lightning caused considerable damage to property in different sections of the 'State on Wednesday. At Hartford two men were killed while plowing n the field ; at Almena one man was killed, and another one with two horses knocked sensless. The Bangor JRe- flectnr says of the sad affair at Hartford: 'During the storm of AVednesday morning, two men working in a cornfield near the corporation line southeast of the village at Hartford, were struck jy lightning. Their names were Darius Cook, and Alvin Conklin. There were four persons at work in the field, two boys, droppingcorn,and Cook and Conk- liu covering. The shock prostrated the two boys, but the oldest one quickly recovered and going to Cook turned him over, when he gasped once or twice and expired. Conklin showed no signs of life. The two boys received uo permanent injury, but the oldest one, Pierce, had a boot heel torn off by the electric fluid. Cook's sleeve was torn, the skin bruisnd and torn ou the left trm, and a black and blue spot was visible on the left side, in the region of ;he heart. Conklin's body showed an abrasion of the skin on the breast. His clothing caught fire but was put out by Pierce. Cook was a man of about 35 years old, leaves a wife but 110 children, [lad been married only a year or two. Conklin was a young man, nineteen or twenty years old, and was the oldest son of Reuben Conklin. The death of these two men in tho sudden and awful manner, naturally causes great excitement in the community where it occurred." Washington Correspondence. ' WASHINGTON, D. C., May 17th, 1380. On Saturday the House voted, by a vote of 121 to 90, to close the session on the Slst day of May. The Senate will, in all probability, adopt the House resolution,' and we shall have adjournment at the time named. But there are a large number of Democrats, as may be seen by the vote, who desire to continue the session through the month of June, in the hope of getting through some general legislation ; and, in fact, at a caucus Saturday night, the Democrats voted to reconsider their action of the morning. Congress has now been in session nearly six months, and members who have the good of the country at heart, and who wanted Congress to adjourn early with all the important business transacted, have tried time and again to get bills relating to the various subjects, which are now urged as reasons for continuance, acted upon, but without success. The Democrats have wasted time in a manner unprecedented, and now when they see a desire of the majority of Congress to adjourn they begin to realize that the record of idleness they have made the past winter is a poor one to go before the country with for endorsement. This waking up to a realization of past idleness comes too late. The Republicans will vote solidly for adjournment on the 31st, for they feel that they have clone their duty to the country in trying to get important business before Congress to the exclusion of the minor subjects that have engrossed its attention, and enough Democrats will vote with them to assure success. The Kellogg case has been laid aside. The failure of Hill's resolutions removes another danger of blunder in the path of the Democratic party. Assistant Secretary of State Hunter is very ill, and will not probable recover. He was one of the oldest officers in that Department. The House has passed the Legislative, c., Appropriation bill, and it will probably go through the Senate 'this week. The Sundry Civil bill comes next, and after that the River and Harbor and General DeMciency bill, which winds up the list. Congress ought to get through, and have at least a week to give to the consideration of general business before flnal adjournment. JOE. A Cliaucft to Try Rice Corn in Michigan. Many readers of the Journal have, no doubt, noticed mention in the western papers of a new kind of grain that has been successfully cultivated for a few years past, in western Kansas and other parts of the west. It is generally known by the name of rice corn and is said to possess all the nutritious properties of wheat, suitable for human food, and highly adapted to feeding and fattening all kinds of stock kept on farms. It is a small grain, not growing on a cob, like Indian corn, but like ahead at the top of the stalk, like broom corn. It is probably a species of sorghum, or at least very nearly related to that plant. But the remarkable feature about it is its power to resist the effects of drought. This is said to be so gre'at that when, from the want of rain for months, corn and all other kinds of cultivated crops would fail and utterly perish, this plant, with slight cultivation, will grow and perfect its grain, yielding from 20 to 50 or 60 bushels to the acre. The grain is said to be rich in the elements of sugar, which also exists in the stalk, though I have seen no mention of efforts to extract sugar from it; but the stalks from a few acres of ground are represented as sufficient to furnish fuel for the wants of a family for n year. Some sanguine writers upon the subject go so far as to say that the cultivation of this grain opens up a new future for the \Vi_st, and that the vast region now only valuable for buffalo hunting grounds or cattle ranges will support dense and prosperous populations. They say that where a gram almost as valuable as wheat, with no more cultivation than the Indian corn, can be produced without danger of failure, at the rate of 20 to 40 bushels to the acre, it means also an unlimited production of horses and cattle and all dairy products, and pork anil wool, to be sold off the farm, bringing in return, and manu- fuctured articlos of every kind ; in short, all the necessaries and luxuries of life. Many farmers, especially in western Kansas, are planting the rice corn qtdte largely this spring, and its capacity for good is likely to be fairly tested. Perhaps we do not need such grain in Michigan, where rain is generally abundant, but the subject is worthy of a little notice. I received, by mail, a small package of rice corn from the President of the State* agricultural college, at Manhattan, Kansas, and any person desirous of raising a f e w s t a l k s o f it, for curiosity or the sakt; of seed, can obtain a little supply, free of expense, at office No. 6, Noble block. Perhaps it would be well not to plant it near sorghum or broomcorn.--/. J. Mechcm in JJaUle Creek Journal. A Veteran Soldiers' Mass Convention. The following call for a Veteran Soldiers' Mass Convention at Chicago deserves the attention of all Michigan Soldiers : DKTROIT, May 13, 18SO. To the Veteran Republican Soldiers of Aftehtoan: CoMitADjflS--The Veteran Soldiers of Illinois have issued the following inyi- tation : The Veterans of Illinois invite all who fought in tiie lat«" civil war, and who now believe that the victory of the Republican party in the approaching Presidential campaign will liiially secure the rebtilts for which the nation fuught, and who will loyally and earnstly support tho nominees of the, Kupublienn Convention, to assemble in mass Convention, nt Ilaverly's fieatre, Chicago, on Tuesday, June 1, at 10 o'clock a. in. We, the undersigned, believing that those who fought to save the government from treason have a duty yet to perform in sustaining the party that has always been loyal in its aims and principles, whose recoed has invariably been on the side of the oppressed and in behalf of good government, cheerfully respond to the above call, and cordially invite all who can to meet with them at the above time and place : R.

Democratic Economy. Gas has been entirely turned off from the Boston Post Office, and all night work has stopped; and gas has been partly turned of£ from the New York Post Office, and most night work has stopped. This, because the Democratic majority in Congress has neglected and refused, after repeated warnings, to pass the necessary Appropriation bill. Twice since the Democratic party obtained power in Congress has this disgraceful thing occurred. Business men may lose largely, and the whole country must suffer inconvenience, through a partial stoppage of mail facilities, and also through the suspension of the courts of justice, because of Democratic neglect to pass the proper Appropriation bills. There is no possible excuse for this. The national Treasury is full to overflowing of money. The taxpayers have provided th». money, and they are entitled to have every public service promptly provided which they have already paid for in advance. The reason is simply the delatoriuess of Congress, caused partly by the Democratic determination to cripple the Government ;is much as possible, and partly by a desire to compel the President to allow himself to be dictated to for the benefit of the Democratic party. The Democratic Congressmen, while they thus deprive the people of Post Office accommodations and courts, take precious good care to draw their own salaries regularly. The people will do well not to forget these things immediately, but remember them when they go to the polls to elect Congressmen next fall.--Post and tribune. Training Wirls in Russia. In Russia considerable attention to the training of girls is paid in some provinces, especially in Finland. There are schools for male and female teachers, in which they learn to do woodcarving, to munufacture boots of all kinds, weave baskets, plait straw hats, make brushes, spin and weave, and are taught other useful arts. There is also a union for the futherance of industry at Helsingtors, which gives a good artistic training, teaching drawing of all kinds, sculpture, painting on glass and tin, all sorts of ornamental writing, book-keeping, etc. There are about 12.5 girls and about half as many boys, and they turn out very good work.--German Paper. Snow a Hundred Feet Deep. A gentleman recently arrived from California, where he has been looking about among the mining towns, speaks of several places where the snow now lies to a depth of over 100 feet. These places are generally at the heads of large canons. At the head of Fall Creek, Nevada county, pines and firs over 100 feet in height are so buried iu snow that only a few feet'bf their tops are to be seen. Where « dark'forest lies in Summer there is now oply to be seen a white expanse of snow, with here and there what appear to be clumps of bushes, but which are really the tops of the tallest pines.-- Virginia (Nev.) Enterprise, Mat/ 4tft. British Grain Trade. LONDON, May 17.--The Mark Lane Express says : "The aspect of agricultural affairs is but little advanced since last week. Night frosts in many districts have checked the development of wheat, which is generally backward and frequently thin. Unless genial weather sets in speedily the chances'of ultimate mischief to the crops will be considerably increased. Scotch advices are somewhat better. Although both in Mark Lane and in the provinces the demand tor English wheat is somewhat Inactive, last week's prices were well maintained and even occasionally exceeded. The imports of foreign has been sufficient to meetordinary requirements without swelling stocks. This circumstance and the unusual shortness in the continental reserves hasincreaaed the confidence of buyers. If the price of wheat had not already fallen comparatively low, doubtless the trade would require all the support extraneous influence could afford to avert a f u r t h e r decline being caused by the liberation of "ring" stocks in America, and increased imports consequent on the reopening of Northern Russian ports. Of late, however, a strong undercurrent of steadiness is observable, and the opinion is gaining ground that wheat, at the present range of prices, can be safely bought for speculation or consumption. Holders have strongly resisted any further reduction, being encouraged by slightly unfavorable crop prospects. An active strengthening influence undoubtedly has been the Continental demand, under which the coast is being rapidly cleared of cargoes at advanced prices. Red winter sold at 25s Grl for the Continent about the middle of the week. The turning point also appears to have been reached in spot market where the price of red winter has improved about Is per quarter. Maize on spot also has been very firmly held, and a slight advance occurred both in London and at Liverpool, while Is advance has been paid for cargoes off coast. The sales of English wheat last week were 2,794 quarters at 44s 9d pel- quarter, against 57,200 quarters at 40s 8d per quarter for the corresponding week of last year. The imports into the United Kingdom for the week ending May 8 were 1.014,906 cwt f wheat, and 155,440 cwt of flour." 20th Annual Convention Michigan State Sabbath Association. The above Convention will be held at Lansing in the First Presbyterian Church on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thmsday, J u n e 8th, 9th, and 10th., commencing on Tuesday evening 7:30 p. rn., with an address on "The Centennial of Sabbath Schools," and continuing through Wednesday, and closing Thursday noon. A programme has been prepared which promises to be one of the most interesting and profitable to Sunday- school woikers ; and all Sunday-schools are invited to send delegates. In order that delegates may be provided with entertainment and reduced rates on railroads, let their names and addresses be sent, naming railroads which they travel, by the first of June to Rev. Wm. Dawe, State Secretary, West Bav City, who will send certificates to all who are duly elected. Any Sunday-school workers in the State, who desire to attend the "Robert Raikes Centennial''in London England, June 28th, to July 3d., may receive the advantages of delegates by application to the State Secretary for delegate's card. A $10,000 Trotter. Eastern turfmen are constantly on the alert to pick up the Western horses that show in public or private promise of u n u s u a l speed. The last Western crack to enter Eastern stables is the big bay gelding Humboldt, until Monday last the property of W. II. Wilson, of Abdallah Park, Cynthiana Ky. Humboldt has a 2:30 record, made last season, but a week ago trotted in private a half mile in 1 :lOi, and since then has shown wonderful speed. This coming to the ears of the well-known turf men, Charles Green and Mr. Thompson, of Utica, N. Y., the former came out here a few days ago and bought the horse for 510,000. About a year ago Mr. Wilson thought of letting him go for $2.500. He was shipped from this city to Utica on Tuesday last. Ilumboldt is 6 years old ; he is sixteen hands two and a half inches high, magnificently put together. He has a long, low stride, splendid action, and the "faculty of getting over the ground at a rate that will astonish the crack trotters of the world ere long.-Cincinnati Commercial. An Unusual Surgical Operation, BAI/TIMOUE, Md., May 15.--An unprecedented event in the history of medical science is reported here. Four weeks ago Mrs. Ballard, wife of a coach-maker, gave birth to a female child of unusual size. Upon the reports of midwife, a phyaician was called, and the fact was established that a second child was present-- a case of abdominal or extra uterine pregnancy. The patient was removed to Vincent's Hospital, and on Thursday the operation of Crcsarian section was performed by several physicians, and a large boy was taken from among the viscera. Both children are living, and the mother is doing well. The case will'attract great attention throughout the medical world.
