IT is charged that the boys in the Pennsylvania Industrial reformatory are cruelly treated. An investigation will be made at once. IT is said that Gladstone can fall asleep at any tin.e and on any occasion, and it is the opinion of Professor Fowler, the phrenologist, that this unusual faculty is the principal reason of the great statesman's mental and physical vigor at his advanced age. WHILE repairing the ancient mines of Casa Grande, near the town of Casa Grande, Ariz., recently, there were un- earthud seven stone axes, one serpent urn of stone, a lot of shells, three ollas (painted), a lot of shell loops, carved shell devices, decorated and painted shells. EXPORTS of wheat from India last year amounted to 1,367 465 tons, or more than double the quantity exported in 1890, and some 274,700 tons above the shipments of any previous year of record. Thus the calculations of those who were figuring out a great shortage in the world's supply of wheat and fabulous prices for the American crop have been brought to naught. A NEWLY invented device for preventing catapillars from climbing trees is the winding of the trunk of the trees for a space with alternate wires of copper ami zinc so closely that the marauder must touch one wire of each kind at every step of his progress. The result will be an electric shock strong enough to precipi- ', tate villian to the earth. Discouragement and nervous prostration would probably drive the creature to eventual suicide under? this treatment. •'•" ; ' ' • " ( .-' GEN.

Schrieber, who have just come from Paris; D. 0. French, the eminent sculptor, who has one or t ;vo commissions for the Columbian exposition, and Frant Dovrak, a Bohemian artist, resident in Philadelphia, who is a brilliant painter, especially of portraits. THE Japanese are the Yankees of eastern Asia, and their energy and enterprise would be no discredit to our liveliest "hustlers." The Japanese government has just made a contract to assist the French proprietors in New Caledonia in colonizing that largo island with desirable Japanese subjects, and is doing all it can to plant colonies anywhere and everywhere. Such of the islands in the Paeifiu as are not claimed by European nations, the Japanese are pre-empting. They are sure of the trade of all these colonies, and that is a significant and important item for the home manufacturers and national commerce. Moreover, the political influence of these voluntary exiles is assured to Japan. The dream of the Japanese statesman is to raise their country to a position which will make it the dominat- politics, and they KINGSACKITE, of Croboe, West Africa, an ally of the British, is dead.

W. Pierce, district attorney thereof, and an elector therein, plaintiff, versos Thos. J. Cunningham, secretary of state, defendant, the Wisconfin supreme court.

The particulars in which it was asserted by the relator that the statute violates the constitution were: 1. _ It violates the requirement of the constitution that the apportionment and redistricting of members of the legislature must, be "according to the number of inhabitants, excluding Indians not taxed and soldiers and officers of the United States army and navy." L2. It violaiea the requirement that assembly districts are "to be bounded by county or town or ward lines to consist of contiguous territory and be in as compact form as practicable," 3. it viojates the provisioni requiring senate districts to be compo.-td ot "convenient contiguous territory, and no assembly district shall be divided in the tormation of a senate district." The respondent moved to dismiss the complaint for these reasons: _ 1. The complaint states no facts showing the relator to have any interest in the subject matter thereof which entitles him to a standing in court to petition for a relief from grievances, real or supposed. 2. It appears upon the face of the complaint that the court has no jurisdiction of the subject matter thereof, and that its recital states no wrongs, real or supposed, cognizable in a court of law or etjuity. 3, That the complaint fails to show any violation of the constitution of Wisconsin in the act apportioning the members of the legislature upon the federal enumeration of population of 1890. • The court, composed of three democrats and two republicans, was unanimous in its ruling. Two concurrent opinions were handed down—one by Chief Justice Lyon, who especially devoted himself to the violence done the constitution by the act in the matter of the division of county lines in the formation of assembly districts, and the other by Justice Orton, who traversed the whole question at issue. A third opinion, also concurrent, is soon to be filed by Justice Pinney. It will cover the jurisd'ctional phase. The opinions are very sweeping and will create interest throughout the entire union. There is no appeal from them, and one of two things is certain-either the governor will call an extra session of the legislature for the purpose of enacting another apportionment law on the lines laid down by the supreme oourt or the fall election for members of the legislature will be hold under the an- whetaer the injunction pray cu 4 , fee refused or granted, without u , termining whether chapter 48? not a vajid law. Hence, the jurisdiction to detrmine the qu the validity of chapter 482, and I or refuse the injunction accorditw.,, 4. Sec. 4, Art. IV of the consfeL ordains, that assembly districts < "bounded by county, precinct, i ward lines." The term "precin ceased to be significant. The aboVei! vision makes the county the prm? territorial unit of representation ml assembly, and prohibits the dismeal! ment of counties in the formation j assembly districts. Hence no assemi district can lawfully be formed »]J includes territory in two or more i ties, unless the whole of such i are included therein, so that th is bounded entirely by county w constitutional assembly district"cani be formed which includes within limits fractions of two or more coin 1 or one county and a fraction of aaotl county, for in either case the into of county lines would be violated : county dismembered. Ch. 482. Lawj'J 1891, attempts thus to dismember ato twenty counties. Sec. 3, Art. IV of the constitutions vides, that legislative districts shaL be formed, and members of thet branches of the legislature apportio "according to the number of inhj, ants," because the county is the primi^ territorial unit in the formation i sembly districts and members of L bly must first be apportioned to i ties or to single_ districts containing or more counties, the above of Sec. 3, Art. IV, as applied to] formation of assembly districts, rag primarily that there must be substanl equality of representation, in prop to population, as between all " ent counties, and districts conti two or more counties. That is to's there must be no material and unnw sary inequality in the proportionate!, resentation in the assembly of countii and such destricts, on the basis of j lation. Each county and each such di_ having a population equal to the nui ical unit of representation in the a« bly (alleged to be 16,368), is entitled al utely to one member of assembly, ui it is found necessary to attach to BL county, in the formation of an asseml district, a county having less than numerical unit of of representation. Ft each multiple of such numerical reached by the population of county, such county is also absoli entitled to an additional member assembly. The remainder of the one liundi members of the assembly, not thus i splutely apportione_d, should be tioned, on some uniform equitable r to an equal number of the several < ties,—probably to the counties havi the largest fractions of population in t cess of such numerical unit or multi] thereof. Ch. 482, Laws of 1891, violates the fat 1 going rule. For example it gives l' Crosse county, with 88,801 inhabited but one member of assembly, wmlei gives Manitowoc county, with 37,831 r habitants three members, , The apportionment of the state mtoi sembly districts is an entire process ! a greater or less extent each party oil apportionment act is affected by, andi* pendant upon, every other part there For this reason, it is impossible to punge from Ch. 482 the portions the which violate constitutional requiremi and.sustain the,balance of the act at. valid law." Hence, the whole act is rail, and void, and consequent!vis not a lep l W ni basis for the issue and publication byft\''> **,tl secretary of state of notices of electiotc /pi members of the legislature. ' \ ty § 7. In the formation of assembly d& ' tricts in a county entitled to two more members, each, district must be & tirely within the limits of the counhj and must consist of. entire conti; ous towns or wards. These also nil be formed " according to the ber of inhabitants," which means tl the number of inhabitants in each trict shall be as nearly equal as practi ble with the number in tbe other tricts in the same county, having due gard to the compactness of the disli Sec. 8. Sec. 5, Art. IV, prohibits.. division of assembly districts in the to] mation of senate districts. Thus the sembly district is constituted the tei torial unit of the senate district. Hi until, the assembly districts are 'for: no intelligent apportionment of the into senate districts can be made. . ate districts must consist of convenii contiguous assembly districts, must also be formed, " according to number of inhabitants." 9, The court finds in the constitut.^., no limitation upon the power of the lew islature to number tbe senate distriotskV it sees fit.
