It is the introduction of an amendment to the penal statutes, by which it will be made a crime for any state officer, supreme or district judge, member of .the legislature, or attache of the legislature to usk, solicit, or receive any railway mileage, pass, ticket or other free transportation; or any telegraph or express franks or other favors at the hands of corporations of public character. This is ip suVstanoe the New York law. On .both sides of the nit a good deal of sentiment has been worked up in favor of it, in a quiet way, and members of both houses have agreed to support it. Judge Thomas, of Huniboldt county, has decided tho famous Owl Lake ease in favor of George K. Pearsons, who drained tho lake nud received title from the county. Attorney General Rowley intervened in a private suit to assert the claim of the state to the land or the lake as it was. The court holds that inasmuch as the state applied to the secretary of the interior, submitted proofs and had the land patented to the state as a swamp, it cannot now deny that it was swamp and claim it in its sovereign capacity, as it seeks to do. The land Svfcs patented to the state and by it to th'c county, which made » contract with Pearsons, by which lie drained it and received several thousand acres ot land in payment. Tho object of the state s intervention is to protect tho lakes of tbq state for the use of the people, Judge Thomas intimates io his opimon that there may be au appeal from the decision of the secretary of tho interior iu the federu! courts.

CUBA ANSWERS. Will Kol, Accept. Autonomy, J{ u t 'Would New York. March 1.— R. O. Dim & Co.'s Weekly Review of Trade says: "Genuine improvement In business does hot come with a rush, like the breaking of a great dam. The growth for some weeks past has been more encouraging, because in nearly all lines it has been gradual and moderate. The rupture of the steel rail pool and otner combinations in the iron business has brought out a vast quantity of trade which had been held back and set many thousands of men at work, while the slow, but steady gain in other great industries has given employment to many thousands more. But the full effects will not appear until increased purchases by all these swell the distribution . of goods. "Meanwhile, it is substantial ground for confidence that months which were regarded by many in the money market with serious apprehensions have passed without disturbance and with steady gain in the position of the country and of the treasury. "The breaking of. the bonds that have restricted many branches of the iron industry has been followed by an enormous increase in demand, and in orders booked, and by the starting of many works." "With less rapidity, yet steadily, the other industries are gaining. Although brown four-yard sheetings are an eighth lower, and print cloths a sixteenth lower, it is found that several cotton mills have started, "The increasing demand has started several woolen mills, also including many making dress goods and hosiery. The demand for men's woolens is also somewhat better, especially lor heavyweights, and there are improving sales of better qualities. The sales of wool have been 38,317,200 pounds in four weeks, against 22,366,800 in the largest previous year, 1892, and the great establishments are believed to have supplied tlicir possible wants for months ahead. A single purchase of 3,300,000 'pounds of South American cross-bred is the most important noted this week. "Wheat enjoyed a brief droped over 3 cents, and cents lower for the week. Western receipts are cent. smaller than for the past four rise, then closed 2% While the 40 per last year, weeks, At- OX, Feb. 20.— Advices from Cuba are to the offect that the Cubans in arms have in reply tri Spain's offer of autonomy, declined positively to accept anything else than absolute independence.
